TO: Rowan Moonstone FROM: Patrick Leight SUBJECT: BLOOD RGARDING BLOOD DRINKING: SOURCE: CULTS THAT KILL, LARRY KAHANER, WARNER BOOKS, C1989, PP. 103 "Det. Bill Wickersham: We were in California, in Anaheim going to a seminar it was Februarry 1986...The woman had called the police and said, 'I have a man tied up on my bed, and if you don't come and get him, I'm going to kill him.' They thought they had a nut on the phone. She called back again, 'I'm goint to kill this son of a bitch if you don't get over here.' The dispatchers wrote it off as a kook. The woman finally called a girlfried who called an attorney, and when the police finally got over there she's in there with a knife and there's blood all over the place, and this guy is lying there with 114 stab wounds. There was a D carved on his chest with a line through it...He had little 7s all the way around the D...It may have something to do with Crowley's book, Liber 777...This homocide went down around Candlemas during which fertility rituals go on -- sex magick...The suspect kept saying, 'We are in the AA (Astrum Argentium).'...There was blood in the guy's gut. It was consumed, not from the stab wounds. That tells you what was going on. I say there was a blood ritual and sex magick ritual...There was a little altar in the basement with candles, the whole bit. At the foot of the bed on the floor she had a dish with a pentagram in it. There were a lot of herbs around. Satanists don't use a lot of herbs. People involved in Witchcraft do. There were a lot of books about the occult in the area...[The murderess's] dad and uncle had inverted pentagrams tatooed on their arms, she said." There are numerous reports of vampirism that have come down through the years and these, almost invitably, have some linkage to the occult. I am sure that I need not go into a listing of the many books. SOURCE: THE GOLDEN BOUGH, FRAZER. "Also the Gauls used to drink their enemies' blood and paint themselves therewith. So also they write that the old Irish were want; and so have I seen some of the Irish do, but not their enemies' but friends' blood, as, namely, at the execution of a notable traitor at Limerick, called Murrough o'Brien, I saw an old woman, which was his foster-moter, take up his head whilst he was quartered and suck up all the blood that ran thereout...(pp. 230)" You will note that the Gauls and the Islanders were Celts. I point this out only to make the case that the Celtic tradition exists. Now also recognize that I see the drinking of blood parallel to Jesus's "this is my blood that is spilled out for you...." in a communion service. There is a belief in certain cultures that if one consumes the blood of another or that of an animal then the "spirit" (if you will) of the other is gained by the one who drinks the formers' blood. In Leviticus 17:10-14: The Lord is talking to Moses saying, "And any man from the house of Israel, or from the aliens who sojourn among them, who eats any blood, I will set My face against that person who eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement. Therefore I said to the sons of Israel, No persons among you may eat blood, nor may any alien who sojourns among you eat blood. So when any man from the sons of Israel, or from the aliens who sojourn among them, in hunting catches a beast or a bird which may be eaten, he shall pour out its blood and cover it with earth. For as for the life of all flesh, its blood is identified with its life. Therefore I said to the sons of Israel, You are not to eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off." Now then, why would Jesus originate a communion in which symbolic "blood" was consumed? What is the symbolism of communion? Here is my opinion: The wine was consummed because the god Bacchus was false whereas Christ has all authority in heaven and in earth. Why was it called "blood?" Again, the authority of Christ is evident as the drinking of blood is forebidden in the Old Testament yet He said to drink it. And as for the bread... cereal or corn gods were also consummed in the victory of Christ Jesus as they are, too, false gods. Christ said, "Do this in memory of Me." Jesus Christ was God, not a god but THE TRUE GOD. All of these other gods were false gods. It is my contention that these other gods were fallen watchers among whom Lucifer/Satan is their chief. To set the record straight that the whole TRUTH become evident, it was necessary for God, Himself, to come to earth to give example and instruction concerning the TRUTH. Would the watchers, being expelled from Heaven because of rebellion know about the things of God? Sure. And they used them (the things of God) to bring the human race into captivity under sin so that humans might serve as allies against God in their destructive and evil rebellion. Consequently we see across history approximations of the things of God BUT these things are perverted in one way or another. Primarily, the perversions tend to be such that the human is led to believe they can rise above God or enter into eternal life even with sin present. You see, this is what Satan thinks he can do, too. So, we see in Christ Jesus, who IS GOD, doing two things at once in the act of communion: (1) He takes the 'gods' Satan uses to deceive humans and brings them back into his authority by revealing their false nature (wine:Bacchus et al., Bread: Ceres and the various 'corn god/desses.') and (2) He reveals His TRUTH, i.e., "In so often that you do this, DO IT in rememberance of me." "This is My Blood...This is MY Body." These fallen watchers and rebelling humans ARE STILL UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF GOD even though they continue their rebellion. Does this make any sense to you, Rowan? I praise God that His TRUTH marches on. The victory against Satan and his minions was achieved at Calvary. May the name of Jesus be lifted up! --- TBBS v2.1/NM * Origin: Sound Doctrine BBS (303)680-7209 Aurora CO (7703/4)
