Magick in the Bible?
The Bible's Missing Books
Writing this was not easy to put it simply. Burning a day’s worth of work trying to sort out the research made by numerous scholars and believers, and it was worth it because what I found is quite controversial, to say the least. What I found is that magic itself is not evil, according to the Bible, but it is the way one uses it and where the power comes from.
Many who have read the Torah and the Bible know of the scriptures that outline that witches, wizards, necromancers, augers, etc. are abominable to God. Then with deeper study you have the scriptures that make an eyebrow rise; usually it is these scriptures that people do not pay enough attention to, but first let us look at parts of the Bible that have been taken out of the collection: First Esdras, Second Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to Esther, Wisdom of Solomon, Testament of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, Letter of Jeremiah, Susanna, Bel and the Dragon, Additions to Daniel (Prayer of Azaria), Prayer of Manasseh, First Maccabees, Second Maccabees. These books listed are books removed from the original printing of the Bible.
The Testament of Solomon
The book most curious and blatantly speaks about a positive use of magick is the Testament of Solomon. The book describes King Solomon’s building of the temple of Israel with the aid of demons controlled by a magickal ring given to him by Michael the Archangel given to him by God. Granted by God Solomon could control the demons through the name of Jehovah Sabaoth. Where it is believed that Solomon had made his magick corrupt is by asking the demon Beelzebub to gather other demons instead of using the Name of God to conjure these demons. This is made clear in the book of Matthew when Jesus is casting demons out of people;
“The crowds were all amazed and asked, “Could this be the son of David?” But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “Only by Beelzebub, the prince of the demons,” does this man drive out demons. Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.”
“The queen of the south will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and now One greater than Solomon is here. When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it passes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left. ‘On its arrival, it finds the house vacant, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and dwell there, and the final plight of that man is worse than the first. So will it be with this wicked generation.”
What I find curious is how strongly this scripture alludes to the Testament of Solomon even though it was taken out of the collection of books that we call the Holy Bible.
Moses the Magician
It is not only this missing book speaking of King Solomon that gives rise to a positive view on magick. Why even Moses uses magick to aid in the freeing of the Jews from Pharaoh.
“And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, ‘When Pharaoh says to you, “Prove yourselves by working a miracle”, then you shall say to Aaron, “Take your rod and cast it down before Pharaoh, that it may become a serpent”.’ Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did as the Lord commanded: Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent.
Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers; and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same by their enchantments. For every man cast down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.”
Many would interpret this as a miracle displayed by God, but this is a display of magick powers by Aaron and Moses through the power of God. This is the key because the scripture highlights the fact that Aaron’s rod swallowed up the rods of the Pharaoh’s sorcerers who channel their magickal energy from other sources other than Jehovah, and the act of magick itself is the channeling of energy from specific sources. Even Moses grew up with occultist mentorship as he was raised as an Egyptian prince, and magick was a common part of Egyptian life. More evidence showing that Moses used magick;
“So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went to the top of the hill. If Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up – one on one side, one on the other – so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”
This action of holding one’s arms up and palms out is recognized by the ancient Egyptians as the power stance. It is meant to project power out towards a targeted subject to either curse or bless it. Here we have it again Moses performing magick, but he does it in the name of God which makes it acceptable in Biblical standards.
Divination and Magi Jesus
Moses was not the only person who performed magick. There was also Joseph who used divination;
“Why have you repaid evil for good? Is it not from this that my lord drinks, and by this that he practices divination? You have done evil in doing this”
Though the Bible say not to seek out diviners, and it does not say that divination to communicate with God was wrong. Joseph did not use divination to call on random spirits, but only the spirit of God. There are many other scriptures that scream magick, but there is one I want to focus on is where Jesus heals a blind man with his saliva,
“While it is daytime, we must do the work of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”When Jesus had said this, He spat on the ground, made some mud, and applied it to the man’s eyes. Then He told him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam”. So, the man went and washed, and came back seeing.”
This was a magickal technique employed by many magicians of the time and before Jesus to heal blindness and deafness. This is something beyond obvious. Jesus was/is the greatest magician ever to live. It is not too odd that Jesus used magick in the name of God as he was visited by three magick kings upon his birth.
What is to say about all of this? Why is this not taught in churches? Why are these scriptures and hidden books either blown out of context or made to seem blasphemous? I believe it is a conspiracy that reaches to the darkest parts of the government, and the likes of Soros, Rothschilds, Rockefellers, DuPonts, etc. Essentially what we recognize as the Illuminati. This is so the people cannot fight the adversary on a personal level. In the battle for human souls for either Heaven or Hell, it is obvious that there was an agreement of neutrality which we all call free will. Where Lucifer nor God may intervene in the affairs of man unless called upon to do so. Surely, the Lord protects his people, but we are being lied to so that we are suppressed and made spiritually comatose. The enemy is winning because we do not understand the power we have been given.
