Fantasy: Satan's Deception

 Fantasy is very popular today. Many of us collect elves, gnomes, hobbits, and fairies. We love watching Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and so forth. We all need a wake up call because those are very dangerous grounds. All of these 'mystical' beings are demons and they are worshiped in the occult. Disney, movies, and fairy tales have made them "cute" yet do not be deceived. The devil is the father of lies! Protect yourself and your family and get rid of all these images and collections from your life and out of your home for good!

Here are quotes from many credible sources that will reveal to us the truth about elves, santa and fairies.

************************

"Fantasy plays an important role in any
religious curriculum, for the subjective mind
is less discriminating about the quality of
its food than it is about the taste. Thus,
fantasy is utilized as a magic weapon in Satanism.
The Satanist maintains a storehouse of avowed
fantasy gathered from all cultures and from
all ages."
-(Anton Szandor LaVey,
The Satanic Rituals, p. 15, 27)

 ************************************
"Elf: 'A small, often mischievous creature
considered to have magical powers.' Although
some of these creatures may appear cute on
the surface, all of them are nonetheless
demonic entities that have their origin
in the occult world."
-(Cathy Burns, Masonic and Occult
   Symbols Illustrated, p. 77)



"Elf - If a person wants their help,
he must apply to their chief, the devil
himself. The idea that these spirits
are demonic in origin is in accordance
with the Bible."
-"Goblins and Elves"
(Dr.Kurt Koch, Occult ABC, p. 82, 83)


Elves - "A host of supernatural beings
and spirits who exist between earth and heaven.
Fairies or Elves are fallen angels.  When God
cast Lucifer from heaven, the angels who were
loyal to Lucifer plunged down with him."
(Rosemary Ellen Guiley,
The Encyclopedia of Witches
and Witchcraft, p. 115)




"elves are "disembodied spirits",
used in "magic and sorcery" and are
"the principal agents in seances."
-(H.P. Blavatsky,
Isis Unveiled, Vol I, p. 262)

"Modern Christmas elves find their origin
in the house gnomes of the Scandinavians,
which were present since the pagan times.
It was believed that these gnomes guarded
homes against evil."
-Christmas World;  (ABC family)



**********************************
"Devil: Besides the name Satan,
he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer
and in popular or rustic speech by many
familiar terms such as Old Nick."
-(Oxford English Dictionary
      Vol III D-E)



"Old Nick: "A well-known British name
of the Devil. It seems probable that this
name is derived from the Dutch Nikken,
which means the devil..."
- (Encyclopedia of Occultism
   and Parapsychology, p.650)

"(Saint Nick) or "Ole Nick" is listed among
the fallen angels or devils in the Dictionary
of Fallen Angels. December 25 is actually
"the feast in honor of the birth of the son
of the Babylonian queen of heaven, later called
Saturnaha by the heathen Romans."
(Gail Riplinger, New Age Versions, p. 52)



"This time of year was in many ways
for the Germanic peoples what Samhain
was to the Celtics, a time when magic
went out into the world, freeing the dead
to walk and elves, trolls, gnomes, et cetera
were free to roam."
-Santa Claus, the Yule Elf, and Odin
  by Kimberly Moore.

"In these plays, the devil’s common
entry line, known as the "devil’s bluster,"
was "Ho! Ho! Ho!"
(Siefker, Phyllis.
Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men:
The Origins and Evolution of Saint Nicholas.
Jefferson: McFarland & Company, Inc., 1997, p. 69)

"Old Nick  - NOUN,  the devil or satan
- The American Heritage® Dictionary
of the English Language:  Fourth Edition.  2000

*****************************************



Fairies have a long and winding history in witchcraft and the occult. The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects describes the fairy as, "tiny female spirit with butterfly wings. . ." (p. 246) The fairy is depicted as a Queen with a crown. (p. 245) It goes on to say, ". . . the fairies were originally the souls of the pagan dead. . . In several folk ballads the Fairy Queen is addressed as ‘Queen of Heaven’. . . Christian sources depicted fairies as real people, almost synonymous with witches." (The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects, p. 246)

"According to theory, fairies are either: earthbound unbaptized souls; guardians of the souls of the dead; ghosts of venerated ancestors; fallen angels condemned to remain on earth; nature spirits, or small human beings. They are said to have magical powers and to consort with witches and other humans with supernatural powers. . ."
(Geddes and Grosett, Guide to the Occult and Mysticism, p. 446)

The popular Encyclopedia of Occultism by Lewis Spence, connects fairies to the devil ands says of fairies, "They steal human children, and leave in their places fairy changelings. . ." (Lewis Spence, Encyclopedia of Occultism, p. 154)



"In Ireland, all the sidh or fairy hills (grave mounds) were said to open up on the occasion [Halloween]. Folks insisted that it was impossible to keep the fairies underground on Halloween. Since these fairies were simply pagan spirits, the church naturally insisted that demons were abroad on Halloween." (Walker, Barbara, The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects, p. 180)


"If a person wants their [fairies] help, he must apply to their chief, the devil himself. This however, would cost a person his salvation. The idea that these spirits [fairies] are demonic is in accordance with the Bible."
(Dr. Kurt Koch, Occult ABC, p. 83)

According to The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft, "Fairies are fallen angels." It goes on to describe fairies as, "Some fairies were said to suck human blood like vampires. . . Many contemporary Witches believe in fairies and some see them clairvoyantly. Some Witches say their Craft [WitchCraft] was passed down from fairies . . ." (Rosemary Ellen Guiley, The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft, p. 117)



Fairies come from the underground of hell. "Fairies are generally believed to live as a nation in an underground location. . ." (Harpers' Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience, p. 198)

wow awesome article. I am always trying to learn. I have a question. So you reference these books but where can we study these things in the bible? I mean it would be awesome to have a reference of Bible verses on paganism and symbols. I love to read things like this but I don't know how to tell which ones are fact and which are just someones opinion even if they claim it to be fact.

Am I making sense? Thanks!

A Voice in the Wilderness said...

Sure!

We know that as Christians, the Bible tells us to flee from the devil, to resist him and to have no part of his darkness. We have to denounce everything that is his, and cleanse ourselves from him. We are to be totally separate.

Images have power and the occult is filled with images. Those images and symbols are known to draw fallen angels and demons. Some people will experience oppression and demonic attacks, and the recommended thing to do is to cleanse their home of all symbols and anything wicked that may draw in evil beings.

"But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils." 1 Corinthians 10:20,21

"Neither give place to the devil." Ephesians 4:27

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7

God hates images, and there is a reason! He tells us to destroy and cast down images.

"Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places" Numbers 33:52

"And there they left their images, and David and his men burned them." 2 Samuel 5:21

We are not to have any images of anything in heaven, nor on earth. Images are dangerous and highly associated with evil.

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth." Exodus 20:4

And we have to be careful because satan can look like anything he wants to, the Bible tells us,

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." 2 Corinthians 11:14

Satan can look like a harmless figure, an icon, things like fairies, elves, santa and so forth.

I think it's a stretch to conflate Santa with Satan on the basis of "old Nick" being an old English euphemism for Satan. There really is a Saint Nicholas - his having that name doesn't make him demonic, any more than any other person named Nick/Nicholas is demonic. Now, I don't go in for all the hype about Santa, and prefer instead to have something low-key on St Nicholas Day (6 December) to remember this Saint that has gone before (I capitalise Saint when speaking of deceased members of the Body of Christ; I don't capitalise it when speaking of the saints upon the earth).

God bless

Hi, thanks for your reply Susan. Actually, there is no proof whatsoever that such a man ever existed.

Archaeology cat said...

Yes, St Nicholas is a true historical figure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas He is St Nicholas of Myra, a Bishop. His bones are still present in his grave in Bari.

God bless

Yet we hear nothing of St.Nicholas as a man, but as a legend. There are a lot of folklore surrounding him such as him resurrecting dead boys that were murdered, chopped up, placed in pickle jars and fed to unsuspecting guests. There is very little evidence that such a man existed.

Quotes:

Nicholas' existence is not attested by any historical document, so nothing certain is known of his life except that he was probably bishop of Myra in the fourth century. . .("Nicholas, Saint" Encyclopaedia Britannica 99)

Nicholas, Saint (lived 4th century), Christian prelate, patron saint of Russia, traditionally associated with Christmas celebrations. The accounts of his life are confused and historically unconfirmed ("Nicholas, Saint" Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia 99)

Unfortunately, very little is known about the real St. Nicholas. Countless legends have grown up around this very popular saint, but very little historical evidence is available. (Del Re, Gerard and Patricia. The Christmas Almanack. New York: Random House, 2004, p. 130)

And in 1969, Pope Paul VI officially decreed that the feast of St.Nicholas be removed from the Roman Catholic calendar because UPI Wire Services reported that St. Nicholas and forty other saints were deleted because he was "of doubt that they ever existed." ("Pope Marches 40 Saints Off Official Church Calendar." UPI Wire Services )

Santa is most closely related, if not the same as a Norse/Scandinavin mythology as Sinterklass. He was a magician that punished naughty children and rewarded good children.

Some say he is associated with the Norse god of Odin or Woden, that rides through the sky on an eight-legged white horse. He lived in the north and had a long white beard. He came out during the winter solstice.

Pagans also have their Thor who represented an elderly man that was of heavy build, wore a red coat (color of fire), drove a chariot driven my goats, was the yule-god, and lived in a palace of iceburgs. He entered homes through the chimney into his element- the fire (Guerber, H.A. Myths of Northern Lands. New York: American Book Company, 1895, p. 61)

Here, [Thor] then, is the true origin of our "Santa Claus." . . . With the Christian saint whose name he still bears, however, this Santa Claus has really nothing to do. (Weiser, Francis X. Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs. New York: Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., 1952, p. 114)

Also, the name "Old Nick" is one of Santa's famous names.. but in other countries, it is a name that brings dread. "Nick" is also a common name for the devil. This St.Nick had also a terrifying companion that was a demon. He would punish children and "gleefully drag them to hell."

Take your pick, but Santa has little to do with this saint than he does with the rest.

I thought I'd mentioned that I don't go in for all the hype about Santa Clause - sorry if I didn't. I was just saying that St Nicholas is a historical figure, a bishop, and one can visit his grave, so we do know he existed. Yes, there have been legends about him, but that doesn't mean he wasn't real. There are also legends about George Washington.

God bless
