Dioses de la muerte (Parte1) La idea del infierno o simplemente de un lugar destinado a ser habitado por los muertos, es algo que ha estado presente en la religión y en la mitología de muchas culturas desde el inicio de la civilización. Dentro de este tipo de creencias han surgido múltiples deidades vinculadas a la muerte, tales como las que verán a continuación. Mitología griega O APOCALIPSE - Igreja em Porto Alegre * Estudo ministrado por Moysés Moraes As escrituras nos dizem que o tempo presente terminará com uma guerra sem precedentes, de destruição, de apostasia da fé, até que o Senhor Jesus Cristo retorne para tirar da terra os crentes vivos, como trará em sua companhia os que morreram na fé. Quando desaparecer da terra o testemunho da verdadeira Igreja seguir-se á um período breve, mas intenso, quando toda a ira de Satanás será liberada sobre a terra. Esse período tem vários nomes na Bíblia e, no Antigo Testamento o nome mais comum é: “O dia do Senhor”! Sempre que aparece tal nome ele se refere ao período entre o Arrebatamento da verdadeira Igreja e a manifestação da falsa. Lembre-se disso toda vez que você ler no Antigo Testamento a expressão: “O dia do Senhor”.

Christ and the Human Condition Introduction Early in the book of Job, Eliphaz the Temanite declares that “man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward” (5:7). Whether it’s the trouble that befalls us as we’re simply minding our own business or the trouble we bring upon others (or even ourselves), difficulties, sin, and suffering seem to plague us wherever we turn. Just think for a moment about some of the natural evils which afflict the human race.

Ancestral Altars & Rituals : Sarah Anne Lawless brief introduction to modern ancestor worship for animists, spirit workers, pagans and witches. Whether you wish to work with familial ancestors (the beloved dead) or the ancestors of witchcraft (the mighty dead), this article contains simple practices and rituals to incorporate into your spiritual path. You will learn how to set up shrines and altars for the beloved and mighty dead, how to create a spirit fetiche to connect the dead to the land of the living, how to give formal and informal offerings, as well as simple rituals of benevolent necromancy. Keep in mind the dead are with us the entire dark half of the year from Samhuinn until Imbolc. Honour them often and perhaps leave your ancestral altar up until the gate is closed once more between the living and the dead. A blessed All Hallow’s Eve to you and yours.

Planetary Conjurations Easily one of the longest passages in the Munich Manual, the following is a translation of a series of astrological and planetary rituals used to time and carry out particular astrological and astral rituals. Although out of place in a grimoire primarily concerned with nigromancy and necromancy, the section on astral magic and planetary conjurations is one of the more interesting to a modern magus or practitioner of the Work. The following text is translated from Richard Kieckhefer’s “Forbidden Rites: A Necromancer’s Guide of the 15th Century”, and is taken from folios 68v through 96v. The text is almost exactly the same to the conjurations, lists, and spirits as declared in the Heptameron of Pietro d’Abano, itself based on the Sepher Razielis, and is quite likely to have been derived from it, though with a few changes here and there, possibly due to corruption.

The Six Stages of Mental Strength Many people think that mentally strong people are simply born that way. That from the moment their feet hit the ground, they are simply endowed with some almost supernatural skill that allows them to face challenges bravely. Others think that mental strength is like a light bulb – it is either turned on or turned off. And if yours happens to be off, you are out of luck. Feri Tradition website: Drawing From The Wells of Creation, The Faerie Goddesses of the Primal Elements, by Storm Faerywolf The F(a)eri(e) tradition works with a veritable multitude of deities and otherworldly spirits. The beginning student is usually familiarized early-on with a particular group of celestial beings variously called the Guardians or Watchers, whose elemental associations are explained to be a convenient point of reference, but that comes nowhere close to summing up their own unique existence2. The Guardians are said to be capable of “invoking that which we cannot”3, and it is only after working with them for some time –and in particular in relation to the goddesses of the primal elements- do we truly begin to see the scope and breadth of such a statement. We are taught that in order to commune with spirits we must do so via the holy daemon.4 One of the principal functions of the daemon is to provide a vital link between ourselves and those external spirits and powers that we wish to commune with.
