WHEN YOU RIDE ALONE
YOU RIDE WITH SATAN
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
I was having a brief exchange on the internet with well-known horror sculptor and mask maker Jonathan Fuller about how ridiculous the television show, American Horror Story has become this season. After their attempts at creating a cartoon version of Satanism and the antichrist in their last season – the writers decided to extend the silliness to making Night Stalker, Richard Ramirez a cartoon superhero for Satan.
The guy who plays Ramirez does a great job in portraying the notorious killer but the whole woo woo idea that Satan is giving him supernatural powers to reign in Purgatory disguised as a Summer camp is taking the show in a campy direction.
Maybe that is the writer’s and producer’s intention – to basically reduce the whole Satan thing to a cartoon as they seemed to have offended the Satanic sensibilities of the faithful last season by making their black Pope, Anton LaVey, a maniac searching for naïve specimens for blood sacrifice.
Even though everything Satan is trending in the pop culture it seems that damnation just doesn’t have the same thrill as it did back in the days of the Satanic Panic.
In 2019, there was this trend that somehow showed that in the United States Satanism has become less terrifying and more hip and cool amongst millennials and younger people.
For most of us our main contact with Satanists or those who claim to be into the dark lord are really bad amateur metal bands, or that guy you know in grad school who’s like, ‘I’m a Satanist. It means I’m a freethinker and a vegan, and I’m in an open relationship.
However, there are satanic groups today that thrust themselves into the limelight and in the process, are demystifying the whole enterprise. I believe that legitimizing Satanism is actually making it less scary and more of a business.
There is no rebellion in being a goth or even wearing a pentagram because it simply has been watered down in both the media and from some of those who say they are part of the global movement towards the left-hand path.
The trouble is, there is Satanism and there is SATANISM in all caps and many people are not aware that there is a difference. The confusing thing is that there are varying conceptions that don’t always play nicely together. The Satanic Temple, the group that has been forcing themselves into the nightly news with various nefarious stunts, are basically heavily tattooed geeks with piercings that sponsor sections of highway and public beaches that they keep then clean. They want to hold after school Satanic gatherings with your kids, that don’t include blood sacrifices but simply teach a secular humanist view of the world that holds mostly to science rather than the trappings of the Supernatural which of course are linked to God. It is not that they worship Satan – they just want to teach about how happy they are, believing that there is an absence of God in their lives.
The Satanic Temple targets questionable overlaps between church and state. But of course, they force the issue by demanding that a statue of Baphomet, the horned hermaphrodite image of the devil be seen in the public square sharing space with the Ten Commandments.
In my opinion, the notion comes off more as some avant-garde statement than a literal religious one but the imagery is there to offend Judeo-Christian sensibilities.
Last Spring, the Satanic Temple found themselves at odds with both the producers of American Horror Story and the Netflix series “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
Both television shows were almost overwrought with satanic references. It was almost to the point of being a distraction rather than scary.
The Satanic Temple sued the producers of Sabrina because they claimed that the Baphomet at the Witches Academy looked a little too similar to the one that they have been demanding be placed in the public square.
They sued the show “for abusing the meaning of this monument that they claim use as a symbol of religious freedom and tolerance and First Amendment values.
The lawsuit was quietly settled out of court.
American Horror Story,” meanwhile, riffed on another real-life reference in its last season, the critically acclaimed “Apocalypse” series depicted the Church of Satan’s founder, Anton LaVey, performing a bloody human sacrifice along with two hooded followers flanked alongside of him.
The Church of Satan responded in a tweet that “Anton LaVey didn’t believe in Christ or an Antichrist and sacrifice plays no role in Satanism. Lazy writers appropriated his name and image for their devil worship drivel.”
Apparently a Fox TV staple “Lucifer” was canceled and renewed on Netflix. When the show was first announced, many Christians were up in arms as “Lucifer” is a nightclub-owning Los Angeles transplant from Hell. He also plays a good guy solving crimes and punishing the criminals in a way that only the devil can. What most people do not realize is the show spends more time focusing on the character’s relationship with angels and God and how Lucifer deals with his daddy issues.
Good Omens was also realized on Amazon – a TV series based on a book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman — again, giving a lighthearted look on what it means to be god angels and fallen angels in the Apocalypse.
Public interest in mainstream Satanism or pop Satanism doesn’t seem likely to end anytime soon. Just ask the Satanic Temple. They claim that right now they’re dealing with growth that is so explosive they can’t possibly process the number of requests they’re receiving.
In fact, the whole pop Satanism move is actually making it hard for horror fiction and movie writers to scare people. The devil and hell are not always all that effective in scaring people anymore and so horror fans are noticing the writers are now eschewing the trope of Satan and are using unfamiliar and mysterious demons and scares that the protagonists have to deal with.
For example, in the movie Hereditary, we find that while the movie has the feel of a latter-day Rosemary’s Baby, we learn that the peculiar cult that has plagued the family in the film is a cult devoted to the Djinn known as King Paimon.
In the film series, The Conjuring there is a demon that is named VALAC. VALAC is a demon that is often conjured by magicians to find the hidden treasure but put it in a scary Nun costume and it becomes a terrifying mysterious evil force.
According to the goetic grimoires, the Lesser Key of Solomon, the demon VALAC is also known as the president of all demons and actually commands 30 legions. He appears as a winged boy that rides a two headed dragon. He appears to tell of planet alignments and where to find serpents.
Using historical paranormal events and finding patterns can give insight to what can be determined as proof of some kind of risky demonic encounters. It seems that demonic or evil activity comes in cycles. There is always demonic activity that increases during the solstice.
But is it limited to just a fad that is making Satan a cartoon – should we be worried about the lack of respect for the devil?
The devil is in the details and while the various geeks who claim to worship the devil are everywhere – the very serious theistic Satanism goes unchecked. We witness it in various ways but as we said there are Ahrimanian vampires that delight in ritual bloodletting and the defiling of children and the innocent.
The history of bloodletting for the summoning of demonic power is not hidden. We see it every day and it is being conducted by governments and is also consecrated by some of the leaders of the various religious sects.
We all have been expounding upon the so-called religion of peace known as Islam as the scapegoat for all of the bloodletting in the world today. It is true that the frequency of bloodletting is not letting up by extremist Muslims. To say otherwise, is absolutely ludicrous. However, the response to this bloodletting is summoning a force so dark and so deadly that other religions of peace are becoming less peaceful and more militant. This creates an environment that is ripe for violent manifestation.
Every conceivable entity known to either restrain or destroy man will enter into the tabernacles, the synagogues, and the mosques.
It will enter into meetings of government, and in gathering places where communities can be marked for spiritual maltreatment.
The majority of people in Western culture seem to believe the end of the world will be a physical event, such as a major earthquake, a Coronal Mass Ejection, a collision with a meteor or a global nuclear war. These events are happening all around us with great frequency. It leaves people wondering that perhaps in a flash some great catastrophe will wipe out entire cities and create megadeath scenarios; however, the world only ends when hope ceases to exist.
The reality is that our apocalypse, and eventually our so-called Armageddon, begins as an internal and spiritual breakdown. Those in Western culture have become far more materialistic in their view of what the apocalypse is, and tend to ignore the warning signs of spiritual or mental decay.
What we are seeing is an apostasy and a rejection of all things spiritual in the world. This so-called apostasy has been diagramed and conscripted by clerics and evangelical soothsayers. Apostasy is not limited to anything pastoral – it is a full rejection of logic in favor of programming devised by the power elite for the benefit of the establishment of World Empire.
The religious, political, and philosophical schisms are meant to occur and metaphoric demons or even real demonic manifestations will appear in an unbelieving world.
All things unbelievable will be revealed.
Demons can be conjured like viruses can be force multiplied. Those who seek with their spiritual eyes and their critical thinking will be able to identify the parasitic consuming dark energy and as it is said in the good book by their fruits yea shall know them.
Humankind has gone from the time of Genesis or the time of the genetic Isis (The era of water) to the time of genetic gnosis, the time of the fire of knowledge, illumination (the Apocalypse) and palingenesis, a term used to describe the transmigration of consciousness or soul from one body to another. In mythology, parthenogenesis is often associated with Death, Chane, and Rebirth.
This is all witnessed by the eye of the great god of chaos. The all-seeing eye now has new meaning for those who do not know the line of thinking handed down from the Illuminati.
The great secret of the ages is that Lucifer is the god of this world.
The confusing thing for mankind is that everything about the various religions is true and everything about them is false. It is nothing but an inherited jigsaw puzzle of fact, fantasy, and metaphor. If we empower religious words and rituals, it would be wise to understand just what is being empowered. We would not want to perform as an inexperienced shaman with a loaded spell. However, loaded spells are exactly what the elite love to cast.
Everything around us is changing at such a rapid speed that it’s easy to get overwhelmed and it’s easy to stick to what you know but sometimes it can be more of a matter of being stuck with what you know.
I have often been told that I talk about things that most people haven’t even heard of before. Needless to say, this is something that I am very proud of. I am also the type of person who believes that a lot of people have never really taken the time to realize the world is bigger than what a compartmentalized media can report about.
There was a time and it wasn’t very long ago that we lived in a linear world; everything happened in pretty much a straight line one change at a time.
Back then it seemed easy to keep up with all of the changes that happen every day.
The option of burying your head in the sand is not going to be an option anymore, millions of people are going to have to retool, re-educate and even think heavy about their future and what threats that are looming in the shadows.
The world is changing faster than ever before, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t being acclimated to it. It’s truly a testament to the ability of humans to adapt to just about any circumstance. We have more food, wealth, and life-saving technologies than anyone in our history. We have a nearly unlimited stream of entertainment and information. Yet, we take it all for granted.
Because we’re so acclimated to this world, we often forget how strange it is compared to previous eras.
The paradigm is shifting, the veil is lifting and events are baffling. We all seem to concede that all of the massive change can be attributed to God, angels, demons or aliens. However all of these conclusions are the accepted insanity for the moment and as any Fortean will tell you, this is purely business as usual in the apocalypse and business will continue as long as there are people pushing for an eschaton or second coming of Jesus, or the coming of a Mahdi, or some magical deliverer that has the magic touch.
Admittedly events that are showing up in the news appear to be similar to what we have seen in the movies. The dreams and nightmares are manifesting in unbelievable events. These events for the most part sound eerily biblical. Stories that include earthquakes, eclipses, planet collisions, visits from “angels”, “demons” “space elders” and of course the return of a messianic God.
All of these events are part of a universal core belief that exists in the three major monotheistic religions. This leaves the people of the world in very vulnerable position.
People in power are very capable of using the various prophecies from Nostradamus, the Koran, the Talmud, and the Bible as blueprints for control. They can be used to socially engineer true believers into a virtual Armageddon that would not be questioned now that we have been subjected to religious extremism and have been told that natural catastrophes are signs of the times.
We have seen how psychological operations can actually exploit the belief system of a religious group and we see the reaction and wonder how it all can happen. We react by feigning our sophistication with such matters claiming that “We do not react in such ways when confronted with the silliness of our beliefs.”
There are people in power, both politically and religiously that want to plant seeds that bear bitter fruit. You can count the seeds in a single apple but you can’t count the apples from a single seed.
When bad seeds are planted the devil’s harvest is at hand and there will be those weak-minded individuals that will call for the purge of people who have beliefs that are different from theirs.
Muslims and Christians awaiting the flashpoint of paradise do not know what turmoil this will cause. And yet people all over the world are saying that it is coming and many are looking forward to the carnage of Armageddon.
This to me is a dangerous turn and is a sick celebration or welcoming of death.
This attitude exponentially breeds extremism. Most Americans will point to Muslim terrorists as an extreme evil in our world, but in Christian groups, the extremism exists as well and this extremism rarely gets the spotlight.
In Christianity, there is a worldwide syncretism, which brings about a blending of Christian beliefs and darker ritualism that is found in Voodoo, Brujeria and Satanism.
Every religious philosophy has its fanatics and Satanism has always been seen as the extreme scapegoat when it needs to be demonstrated that many people who cannot handle a supernatural world will often lose their minds in the swarm of bad vibrations in an ethereal world already being destabilized by war and the threat of the end of the world.
This is why in the poorest countries of the world — cults are finding new Gods to worship and pray to. In fact, the fastest growing cults in the world are the ones that uphold and worship Azrael the God of death.
Research has shown that over time, there are populist religious rebellions against dogma that fails to satisfy the needs of those seeking confirmation within their spirituality. They either rebel with extremism or they can subvert established dogma and act as creative spiritual subjects despite the fact that practicing such spirituality can be seen as cult-like or satanic.
Above all, the emergence of such a cult speaks volumes about how world culture is now seeking subversive forces for spiritual satiation and a justification for an increase of extremism and brutality.
Keep telling yourself that there are no monsters – keep thinking that the cartoonish nature of the Hollywood Satan eliminates the possibility of real vampires in our midst that certainly partake of blood in the shadows and eat their spirit cakes with other elitists that worship darker demons and devils that don’t always fall into the default mode of Lucifer and Satan.
It needs to be said the powers that are beholden to other powers are very careful to include hints and clues as to what their plans are through the icons they choose to include and the names they wish to utter in order to fortify the spells they cast on the world.
Many people have heard the quote from Britain’s Victorian Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli when he said the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. One should keep that in mind as they wind their way through the darkest pages of conspiracy history.
There are many people in this world well aware of the convoluted history of the secret societies and their occult practices. Some of them include the Rosicrucian Order, The O.T.O, the Knights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the P2 Lodge, the Priory of Zion and the CIA.
The Deep State can be included in this cabal of treachery as their job is to create chaos in the guise of what can be called the “resistance.”
After all in the politically charged book “Rules for Radicals” we read that the book is dedicated to the first rebel in history – none other than Lucifer himself.
“Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”
Of course, if you read politically biased fact-checkers you will read that the whole statement was not a dedication to Lucifer but an acknowledgment of the literary fallen angel spoken of in fiction.
But the Devil is in the details and when you ride with Satan, you ride alone.
In the darkest of secret societal ritual, there is a ritual where the initiate is subjected to witnessing several carefully staged death rites and being told that he or she may be killed too. The initiate, after witnessing several moments of death, is then given a ritualistic rebirth. The initiate is told that since he escaped death, he deserves to make the change into the new life. It is known as a “hard baptism.”
After the hard baptism, there are steps taken that reveal the great mystery. The mystery is a secret you carry your whole life and if you let that secret out, you will be subjected to death.
After the trauma rituals and witnessing or being threatened with ritualistic death the initiate learns that no matter what you do, you must learn to respect the entity of chaos in order to restore things to a new order. You must learn there is no good and there is no evil. There is only selfishness and selflessness.
It is in these series of rituals there is a binding or the commitment or “worship” of the initiate to its mentor or savior. If you defy the mentor, you can face death or material ruin.
On a larger scale, we as a people have been subjected to various traumas from organized terror attacks, to mass shootings, and riots in the big cities. All organized by a hidden hand that with bottomless pockets that provide the money guarantee the blood cement needed for the loyalty of the minions who blindly support a political movement that is not dedicated to further the work of the savior the claim to worship – but the external savior that they worship only for the moment.
It is the highest form of idolatry and yet is a sin that we believe is forgivable as we cherry-pick religious texts to satiate our cognitive bias.
This appears to be a fragmenting of society which can arguably be the product of planned trauma conducted by powerful individuals grooming the world into accepting the rule of Baal personified or the Antichrist.
Given the climate of the cartoon devil, we can easily see how a corrupt leader can rise above the noise and claim to have the answers to how we can heal the moral decay but of course, the solution will be to actually become monsters in order to eliminate those that we do not agree with.
Throughout every passage of scripture, whether Muslim, Jewish, and Christian, there is a story about an empire that will appear to serve God but in reality will be an ecumenical trap or a state religion. This has been called the New World Order. Christians believe that it is the empire of the Antichrist.
We know the story so well that it is a “program,” a program that has an obvious response whenever we see or hear of something that sounds apocalyptic.
We read in the New Testament that “Satan’s house is the body of the one who is possessed by a demon.” According to the Book of Matthew, there are times where the demons of hell are restless and wish to find bodies to possess.
Throughout the gospels and in many denominations we see there are warnings that in times of turmoil, there are counterfeit gods, christs and demons that use humans as avatars for the purpose of carrying out agendas of evil. Looking at the various histories, we can see that demon scares, possessions, and appearances of shadowy figures all come in times of famine, pestilence, and brutal wars.
Arguably, the brutality of this world has resurrected many of our inner demons.
Demons that are not cartoonish or mocked by hipsters but those that have us bound and debilitated, making us open for the act of possession.
