Why Are Both Christians and Pagans Finding Refuge In The Necronomicon Tradition?
Greetings! I would like to welcome you to Papers in The Attic: A Simon Necronomicon Practitioner’s Journal! Feel free to review some of our previous articles and comment as you like.
Many of our readers may remember an article entitled, The Fall of Christianity. In this article we discussed the falsehoods of Christendom. Some of this is largely due to a political population than takes pride in endorsing America as a Christian nation. There are some Christians who take offense to such hypocrisy. If we were to just take one look at the words of “Jesus,” as they are recorded in the Christian Bible, it becomes evident that the modern Christian religion falls short in the arena of the Christian faith. This is also true of many adherents of the so-called Left-hand Path, or the shadow side of the occult. years before this blog page began, just about every occult organization denounced the Simon Necronomicon as a hoax, without doing their own investigation. Now, based on many testimonies of Initiates in the Necronomicon Tradition, these same organization are trying desperately to convince their membership that any form of magic is possible as it is just an aesthetic to channel powers of the mind. However, these same LHP organizations cannot explain the Mesopotamian mysteries like those who are initiated into the Necronomicon Tradition.
There is both disenchantment in the Christian world, to say the least, and in the ideologies of Right-Hand Path and Left-hand Path practitioners of the pagan faith. let us take note of the words written in the Biblical book of Matthew Chapter 23, and see how they apply to both pseudo-religious/occult groups. I will make a commentary on each passage:
“1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.”
Here we see how the religious leaders of the past and today can easily tell others what to do, but they do not engage in this conduct themselves. They make a career of not serving “god,” but entertaining people with their words and judging who is worthy, as if they are standing in front of “god”. This also applies to many so-called occult organizations. When a person gets involved in a group, they are under the assumption, perhaps based on the aesthetics of digital advertising, that a particular group has acquired a certain amount of knowledge that can aid them in spiritual development. This is when the occultist becomes like the Christian in denying that it is by our own efforts that we come into union with divine thought. The only role that anyone can play in our spiritual development is that of a mentor. the mentor will instruct us in an exercise that we must take active participation in, so that the veil can be lifted, as the macrocosm kisses the microcosm and a new creation is born.
“4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,”
Any church or religious establishment where the clergy wear special garments during church services, or seating in front of a congregation as a way of showing their authority are in complete violation of Jesus’ words as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. This also applies to many so-called occult organizations that insist on stressing their membership with obligations that are completely unnecessary in their work of elf-evolution.
“7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”
Anyone who claims to be a Christian and carries the title of “reverend,” which means leader, or has to be addressed as “father,” is in complete violation of the Christian faith. This also applies to adherents to many of the psuedo-occult organizations. Leaders of these organization insist that newcomers of their group address them with such titles as “master” and “lord.” These titles were never meant to be used in occult circles, with the exceptions of covens that operated as communities. In ancient times, some warlocks and witches would live in the same village, or the same house. In the case of communal living the head warlock, or witch was addressed as “lord” if he own the property that the rest of the initiates in the coven were living on. The occult “lord” also held the responsibility of mentoring members of his/her coven. This is the origin of the modern term “landlord.” They were later adopted by the layman and his business dealings. The term “master” evolved around the same idea with the simple exception that it referred to a coven that occupied a house instead of a village and the owner of the house was called “master.” Today we use the term “adept” proper, to indicate someone who has “mastered” the teachings of a particular house of knowledge. These customs derive from ancient Sumerian, when the gods, who were no more than human magicians, with adept skills in black magic, ruled openly. Dictionary of the Occult by Julian Franklyn makes this point very clear. On page 122 we find:
“In seeking for Sumerian origins we find, as might be expected, that much of the occult thought was founded upon Mother-Goddess-worship. She appears always as the owner of a city, and the territory belonging to the City; the people were but the tenants- of the divine landlord, and paid their rent in kind to the keeper of the Temple.”
Initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition still follow this divine sacrament today by paying due tax, through sacrifice back to the Mother Goddess. notice what is mentioned in the Urilia Text:
“And when thou hast set out bread for the dead to eat, remember to pour honey thereupon, for it is pleasing to the Goddess Whom No One Worshippeth,”
The Christian Bible emphasizes the same thing in the Gospel of Mark 12:17:
“And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.”
The passage mentioned above about the Goddess Whom No One Worshippeth is very appropriate for our discussion here. One false aesthetic promoted by the Christian church and the psuedo-occult organizations is that “sacrifice” was performed for forgiveness of sins when nothing is further from the truth. sacrifice was performed to pay tribute to the Mother Goddess who holds the spirits of the dead in her womb and as a way of saying thanks for “life.” Spiritism and the Cult of the Dead in Antiquity by Lewis Bayles Paton, states the following on page 261:
“Sacrifice is a rite that only has meaning in the cult of the dead. The blood, in the life of the animal resides, is poured out in order that the shades may drink of it and renew their vigour. Offerings of food and drink are not needed by celestial deities, but are needed by spirits of the dead, and have been offered to them from the earliest times.”
The Christian Bible, in both the Old and New testaments, is filled with this idea of sacrifice, making it a primary religion in the legacy of the Cult of the Dead. The Bible is a “necronomicon” that many do not understand, but could be understood when you see that is a work of necromantic art. The Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition is aware of this since they sacrifice to the Watcher who is invoked from the land of Kur.
“10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.”
The position of a servant is capitalized by the modern Christian Church and the psuedo-occult industry. Members of these organizations are usually given the task of bringing in more members while the leaders of the churches and occult organizations enjoy the profits, and gain control over another individual. The term minister means a servant. When one is truly on the path to god-hood, they have more responsibilities to fulfill. More energy is gained and utilized for efforts of global preservation. how could the divine self exist without the body? This is where the necromancer, the black magician, all of which pertain to the true meaning of the Christian faith, exercises his/her god-hood by extending altruistic efforts to others. many will note that in the Christian mythos, Jesus begins healing and etc, after his baptism. Baptism, which we will discuss in a related future article, is an analogy for the Gate-Walking initiation.
“12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”
Although there exists many conspiracy theories all over the internet about leader of the Christian Church having access to some forbidden knowledge, or what have you, they are just as ignorant as the congregations that they teach. They are only carrying out, mechanically, the customs of Christian magicians in times passed. They perform these rites without no true initiation and because of such they do not understand that Christianity is a magical religion. It is based entirely on occult practices. These clergymen are in no way prepared to lead anyone into salvation, for such salvation is not granted due to obedience to gods or men. In like manner, many leaders of the so-called occult community have no true initiation or power! First they come up with this doctrine that magic is all in your mind, which is true, but not the conscious mind and the only way to access the other parts of the mind is through initiation. See, when the initiation process becomes void, it is easy for armchair magicians to steer crowds in their direction simply by winning an argument. Everything becomes arrange on what makes sense rather than what actually works. These occult leaders will then past judgements over the lives of those who follow them, as a way of manipulating them and keeping them dependant on an external source for an answer.
So far in our discussion, we have noted many inconsistencies in the church and in the occult world at large. Some people have observed this for themselves and have also noticed that Initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition are one of the few that the ancient Sumerian faith, not Babylonian. I can say this because the formulae for the rites themselves precedes Babylon, though the initiation process may be closely associated with some Babylonian lure. Notice what is written by the Mad Arab in the Magan Text:
“THE verses here following come from the secret text of some of the priests of a cult which is all that is left of the Old Faith that existed before Babylon was built,”
This same priesthood is described in the Mad Arab’s First Testimony:
“I have found the Gate that leads to the Outside, by which the Ancient Ones, who ever seek entrance to our world, keep eternal watch. I have smelled the vapours of that Ancient One, Queen of the Outside, whose name is writ in the terrible MAGAN text, the testament of some dead civilisation whose priests, seeking power, swing open the dread, evil Gate for an hour past the time, and were consumed.”
The above passages illustrate that the Necronomicon Tradition is a very primordial current. the teachings of Jesus was an effort to preserve this hidden rite of Sumer. The teachings of Jesus are those of Inanna/Ishtar.
Note the similarities between the Inanna-Ishtar myth and the story of Jesus. As Ishtar descended, she was stripped and humiliated; Jesus was stripped, beaten and humbled. Ishtar was killed and hung on a stake; Jesus was hung on a cross. Ishtar was resurrected after three days; Jesus rose from the dead on the third day. Both achieved eternal life. Easter is in fact the same story as Ishtar.
Ishtar was also known as the Queen of Heaven (there is a large denomination that openly prays to the Queen of Heaven). Ishtar was connected to the planet Venus, called both the “morning star” and the “evening star.” Ishtar was worshipped as female in the morning and male in the evening. In Revelation Chapter 22:16, we find “Jesus” describing himself as follows:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.”
The ancient goddess Inanna/Ishtar was often symbolized by a dove, and in her primordial form, “Ishtar-Tiamat” she is represented by a serpent. Notice what is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew Chapter 10:
We also find this same theme in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction:
“Therefore, the Goddess of the Witches has two distinct forms: the Ancient One, Goddess of the Dragon-like telluric Power which is raised in Magickal rituals, and the Elder Goddess, Defeater of Death, who brings the promise of Resurrection and Rejuvenation to her followers those who must reside for a time after death and between incarnations in what is called the “Summerland”.’
