BELIAL

By: Christopher “Lobo” Ostrowski

“Belial means “without a master”, and symbolizes true independence, self-sufficiency, and personal accomplishment. Belial represents the earth element.” – “The Satanic Bible”
Anton LaVey (1969) Book of Belial: introduction

Of the Christianity, Judaism or Islam, has heard of Belial. He is Second on to Lucifer in the Hierarchy of Hell. Boys that did have the a Bris/Circumcision were called the “Sons of Belial”.

It is believed that Belial was Created as an Archangel right after Lucifer and helped Lucifer start the rebellion in Heaven. This made him one of the first angels cast out.

In Recent Movies:
More recent adaptations have taken Belial in many ways, sometimes only using the name.
The classic 1922 film Nosferatu says that the titular vampire originated from “Belial’s seed,” implying Belial’s hand in the creation of vampires.
One of the possessing demons in the later film The Exorcism of Emily Rose claims to be Belial, in this case possessing a small child.

In Literature:
Belial also figures in John Milton’s Paradise Lost (1667). There, he is the Fallen Angel responsible for making “atheists” of priests, including the sons of Eli. In Book II of Paradise Lost, Milton depicts Belial as handsome and smooth-tongued, but one who realizes that the war against Heaven is dangerous and hopeless of success. Thus, he counsels sloth and ease. His hope is that if Hell does not provoke Heaven further, that the fallen angels may grow accustomed to the pains and fires of the underworld, and live in comfort. Belial does not advise seeking forgiveness or pleading for mercy from the heavenly victor.

Master of the Earth:
Now, let’s get to the Demonolatry side of the story.
Belial is The Sixty-eighth Spirit. He is a Mighty and a Powerful King. He appears in the Form of Two Beautiful Angels sitting in a Chariot of Fire. He speaks with a Seductive Voice. He gives excellent Familiars, and governs 80 Legions of Spirits/Demons. King Belial must have Offerings, Sacrifices and Gifts presented to him by the Demonolater, or else he will not give True Answers. Remember, He is a King, treat him with respect.

Belial is the carnal side of man, the lust, sex, pleasure and therefore the principal drives that make living worthwhile. People derive all the principal emotions of the higher ego from Belial: Pride comes from self-control and suppression of Belial’s influence. Strength, pleasure and independence come from embracing it. Belial is the Master of the Earth, the force that holds Humankind by its short hairs, any security or stability are results of lessons learnt from dealing with Him.

Belial is the champion of simply being human, for the flesh, the material and the carnal. In essence, a reverence for Belial affirms how “good” the flesh/humanity is. Unrestrained by law or morality; lawless; immoral; dissolute; lewd; lascivious, Unrestrained; uncurbed; uncontrolled; unruly; riotous; ungovernable; wanton; profligate; dissolute; lax; loose; sensual; impure; unchaste; lascivious; immoral, dissolute indulgence in sensual pleasure.

Belial is an excellent spirit to work with if you want a promotion or a new and better career entirely

The Ghosts of Carlisle Barracks

By: Christopher Rogue Ostrowski

Carlisle Barracks is located in the Cumberland Valley in Pennsylvania. It is considered one of the best military schools in the world.
Of its Graduates: John J. Pershing, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Omar N. Bradley are the top three recognized

Originally, a spot were early traders and settlers stopped to rest before they made their way across the Allegheny Mountains. It was made a Military post in 1757.
George Washington had visited the area during the Revolutionary War. He wanted it to the spot for the New Military Academy. But it lost out to West Point
The Post did serve as the U.S. Army Mounted Cavalry Training Area in the 1830’s
During the Civil War Union troops occupied both the post and the town of Carlisle. Major General J.E.B. Stuart a Confederate soldier demanded the post and the town surrender, when they didn’t he shelled both and set fire to the post.
In 1879, Carlisle Barracks became the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. Its most famous student and the best athlete was Jim Thorpe.
At the onset of World War l the Barracks was returned to the War Department. It became a hospital that specialized in the treatment of mental rehabilitation for those suffering from the newly identified trauma–called “Shell Shock”.
By the 1920s the Medical Field Service took over the Barracks.
In 1951, the U.S. Army War College relocated to Carlisle and to this day prepares senior officers for high command.
The Barracks assorted history has left the Barracks haunted by a plethora of ghosts. Some say Jim Thorpe can be seen in the Gym. Along with sounds of shuffling sneakers Many confounded Visitors hear faint 20’s and 30’s music from the Bandstand. When this music is heard it is often played off key so it felt that this was probably a young student band from the school preforming a concert.

At the Letort View Community Center, other ghosts can be seen including a well-dressed female student and a man dressed in farm attire. The cellar of this building is so active it has been dubbed, “Purgatory”.

Some of the ghostly activity reflects to the Revolutionary War. At Carlisle there is a building that was originally used as a powder magazine. Today this building is used as a museum that houses a variety of military artifacts.
It is believed that the Hessian soldiers who were forced to construct it in 1777 still haunt it.

Samael

By: Christopher Rogue Ostrowski

Samael is an Archangel that is a very complex Angelic character. His name means “the venom of God,” and is believed, by some to the “Satan” in the Bible. He is mentioned in the Talmud as accuser, seducer, and destroyer who slays humans with a single drop of poison.
Samael also is said to have planted the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden This is where He also crosses paths with Lilith, the original Wife of Adam, according to the Jewish faith. He is said even to have possessed the serpent to tempt Eve. According to the Book of Enoch, which is not recognized by the Christian Faith, he taught humans Magic and was directly involved in the Angelic miscegenation that produced the Nephilim. Believed to be the race of ½ man and ½ angel that “God” tried to erase with the “Great Flood”.
Samael, like Azrael The Archangel of Death, has Twelve wings, and also holds full Archangelic status. Samael has the function of bringing Evil misfortunes and punishments upon Humankind, in God’s behalf. Yes, you read that right. There is a reason for misfortune. We can see, as it is stated in Isaiah 45:4-7, “God is the Source of all.” Even though this work depicted him as being one of the most wicked angels, he is nevertheless said to be an angel in the service of the Lord.

The Zohar* associates Lilith and Samael when speaking of the quaternion marriage. The quaternion marriage involved two couples; God and Shekina** above and Samael and Lilith below. But it is alleged that following the destruction of the temple that Shekina descended to be with her flock or people while her handmaiden Lilith ascended to become the consort of God, thus showing her importance.
