The French Revolution was the second great Freemasonic/Illuminist conquest after the American Revolution. It was a seminal event in the birth of the New World Order and the Illuminati’s conquest of Western civilization.

One of the clearest signs of the Freemasonic nature of the French Revolution is found in the document Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen,” a foundational document of Revolutionary France. The Declaration lays out the principles of the new French Republic, such as liberty, equality, democracy, secularism, universal human rights, sovereignty of the Nation, and freedom of speech. All of these principles are rooted in Enlightenment and Freemasonic philosophy, and were not part of the pre-Revolutionary European order. In fact, the Declaration was composed in the Masonic lodges of France, with input from Thomas Jefferson, author of the American Declaration of Independence and frequent visitor to Paris; Voltaire, member of the Parisian “Nine Sisters” Lodge; and Benjamin Franklin, ambassador to France from 1776 to 1785 and Grand Master of the Parisian Lodge from 1779 to 1781.

The “Declaration of the Rights of Man” original document

In addition to its Masonic principles and writers, the French Declaration contains explicit Masonic symbolism: the Eye of Providence, also seen on the Great Seal of the United States, is at the top of the document; below, the serpent eating its tail is the Ouroboros, an ancient symbol of alchemy and Hermeticism, which are central to Masonic occultism; the two pillars on each side are a common Freemasonic symbol called Boaz and Jachin, which represent the two pillars at the entrance to King Solomon’s Temple.

It is interesting to contrast the Articles of this Declaration with the principles of Sharia or other ‘divine law’. For example:

Article III: The principle of any sovereignty resides essentially in the Nation. No body, no individual can exert authority which does not emanate expressly from it.

Article VI: The law is the expression of the general will. All the citizens have the right of contributing personally or through their representatives to its formation. …

These Articles are radical departures from the previous European regime, which granted final sovereignty and law-making ability to a monarch, and then to God. It also contradicts the fundamental principle of an Islamic state, which places final sovereignty with God alone, and gives no man the “divine right of Kings” nor the right to create laws which violate the Sharia. Thus, the French Revolution, by these Articles alone, is irreconcilable at its foundation with ISIS or any other Islamic state.

It is worth noting that “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights” adopted by the United Nations in 1948 (also in Paris) contains Masonic principles very similar to those of the French Declaration. In particular, Article 21.3 states:

The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures.

Here again, the idea that sovereignty belongs to the people rather than to God is made explicit, putting it in direct conflict with Islamic ideology. Article 28 is also interesting to note:

Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized.

Isn’t saying that everyone is entitled to an “international order” that “fully realizes” these rights another way of saying that everyone on the planet must join the Masonic New World Order?

Note also that this U.N. Declaration was composed by a panel of mostly Westerners, with only a single man from the Muslim world, who was himself a Christian. Thus, the Islamic world had no input into this Declaration, nor in the founding of the United Nations. To Islamists, it is clear that the United Nations is non-Islamic at its foundation, and is essentially an Illuminati construct designed to impose its values and sociopolitical models upon the entire world.

Temple of Lam

{The following is an excerpt from The Templar Handbook by the Dark Lords.}

Temple of Lam is the nexus of a cult devoted to Lam, a being the famous magician Aleister Crowley claims he was contacted by in 1918. Crowley believed that Lam was an extra-dimensional intelligence, who entered this plane through a portal he opened during his sex magickal Amalantrah Working. Subsequent Crowley disciples from the O.T.O. Order have attempted to contact Lam and reported considerable success. Crowley protege Kenneth Grant has called this current the Cult of Lam, and described their techniques as the Lam Workings. Grant describes his interest in Lam this way:

“The Cult [of Lam] has been founded because very strong intimations have been received by Aossic Aiwass, 718’.’ to the effect that the portrait of Lam (the original drawing of which was given by [Crowley] to [Grant] under curious circumstances) is the present focus of an extra-terrestrial – and perhaps trans-plutonic – Energy which the O.T.O. is required to communicate at this critical period, for we have now entered the Eighties mentioned in The Book of the Law.

It is Our aim to obtain some insight not only into the nature of Lam, but also into the possibilities of using the Egg as an astral space-capsule for travelling to Lam’s domain, or for exploring extra-terrestrial spaces in the sense in which O.T.O. Tantric Time-Travelers are exploring the Tunnels of Set in intra-cosmic and chthonian capsules.”

Crowley’s sketch of Lam

The Temple of Lam has taken this a step further, establishing a physical temple in the Mojave desert in Nevada, where Templars conduct Lam Workings as part of their Temple rituals.

Lam Templars have developed a whole mythos around Lam, claiming that he is one of the “Grey” aliens who became famous from UFO abduction cases beginning in the 1950s. Indeed, as we see from the above sketch, made by Crowley in 1919, Lam does bear a strong resemblance to the Greys. Lam Templars believe that Crowley actually summoned the Greys―who had been depicted in ancient temples, but not seen in recent times―back to Earth. Templars believe Crowley trained his protege Jack Parsons, along with L. Ron Hubbard, to continue his Lam Workings. In 1946, Parsons and Hubbard conducted the Babalon Working, which is thought to have reopened and widened the Lam portal, bringing a wave of Lam-beings into our plane, in the form of UFO and Grey sightings starting in 1947.

Lam Templars want to open more such portals, to bring many more Lam-beings to Earth. They believe that Lam is a new god-form who is making a bid to conquer this plane, overthrow the old gods, and establish his reign over humanity. They also suspect that the being “Darth Omega” who contacted Darth Imperius was a Lam manifestation. To Lam Templars, the UFO phenomenon is part of a larger metaphysical phenomenon, of an Aeonic “changing of the gods”, which they sometimes symbolize with a Black Sun.

The Temple

The Temple of Lam is located in the Mojave desert, on property owned by a wealthy businessman with a keen interest in UFOs and the occult. The Temple is built to resemble a flying saucer, with a low, tapering disc shape and stares leading up one side. On a dais on top sits a stone bust of Lam, which Templars make offerings to and meditate upon during their workings. At the base of the Temple are two obelisks with the word “Lam” in the Harzâd alphabet painted down the sides. On top of the obelisks sit two large egg-shaped obsidian stones, which reflect the importance of the Egg as an astral and tantric time travel symbol in the cult’s magickal system.

Artist’s Conception of the Temple of Lam

Lam Contact Working

At the Temple, Templars seek to invoke Lam into their presence, and receive guidance about how they may assist his campaign to become a god of the new Aeon.

To begin the contact working, the presiding priest conducts a banishing ritual (see Temple Rituals) to create a cleared space for the working. He then traces a nonagram around the Lam statue with his dagger, intoning “Lam” at each of the nine points. This rite ‘opens the portal’ to Lam’s dimension.

At this point, the Templars are sitting in lotus position facing the Lam portrait above the Temple altar, gazing into its eyes. They mentally repeat the mantra “Lam” for a few minutes, attempting to invoke Lam by his name. If they receive a positive response, they visualize themselves entering Lam’s egg-shaped head and seeing the world through his alien eyes. Next, they ‘seal the Egg’: visualize Lam’s eyes closing, and await developments. Templars often experience contact by a Lam-being at this stage. When contact is lost, or the Templar is disturbed, he leaves the Egg of Lam’s head and returns to the mundane world. When everyone present has returned to mundane consciousness, the priest strikes a gong nine times, performs another banishing ritual to close the portal, and the working is concluded.

The Devil-Worshippers

The following is the introduction to The Devil-Worshippers, an anthology of classic tales of Diabolism and Black Magic edited by the Dark Lords.

Mankind’s Primal Religion

DEVIL-WORSHIP! What could be more terrifying? What could provoke more primal fear than the specter of men who worship a deity, not of benevolence and light, but pure evil and darkness?

In his classic study, The History of the Devil and the Idea of Evil, From the Earliest Times to the Present Day, Paul Carus make the case that Devil-worship is the primeval form of human religion:

Devil-worship naturally precedes the worship of a benign and morally good Deity… there seems to be no exception to the rule that fear is always the first incentive to religious worship. This is the reason why the dark figure of the Devil, that is to say, of a powerful evil deity, looms up as the most important personage in the remotest past of almost every faith. Demonolatry, or Devil-worship, is the first stage in the evolution of religion, for we fear the bad, not the good.

Devil-worship is indeed a religion of fear, but it is also a religion of awe: awe at the powers of darkness; awe at the dark god who commands these powers and must be propitiated by mortal men.

But more than mere slaves who live in fear of a tyrannical God in the manner of the Yehovans, Devil-worshippers hope to gain great boons by their fealty—all the wealth, power, pleasure and knowledge which the Lord of this World has to offer. In an age of widespread unbelief and cynicism—a so-called “Age of Enlightenment” which starves men’s souls of the potency and faith of the old religions—it may be Devil-worship that offers the path out of this cul-de-sac of ignorance—a path that is compatible with the materialistic and hedonistic ethos of the age, yet which serves a transcendent Master: the Devil!

Notes About These Tales and Essays

Devil Worship” (pub. 1900) is the second chapter of Paul Carus’s opus, The History of the Devil. Carus describes pre-Christian forms of worship among American Indian tribes and ancient Greeks—in particular their practice of human sacrifice to sinister gods—to show that Devil-worship is indeed mankind’s primal religion.

Secret Worship” (pub. 1908) is a brilliant tale of an outbreak of Devil-worship at a monastery in a remote German village. Written by the great master of the weird tale, Algernon Blackwood, the story illustrates a vexing fact about faith: the closer one gets to God, the more tempted one is by the Devil!

The Late Mrs. Fowke” (pub. 1921) is a delightful little story of a housewife with a most unusual hobby, and an alter ego that is quite diabolical. Let this be a warning to those who take mundane appearances for truth, that out in remote hollows, hymns are being chanted to dark gods, and a more sinister, vital existence is being celebrated!

Gavon’s Eve” (pub. 1912) tells of witchcraft and devilry at a remote Scottish loch. The star of this tale for this editor is the setting: an ancient, ruined Pictish castle, with a stone altar set above a black pool, illuminated by the midnight moon of Gavon’s Eve. Surely the Devil comes out to play in such settings, or not at all!

Dig Me No Grave” (pub. 1937) by pulp legend Robert E. Howard is a superb tale of a diabolical pact that comes due in the most dramatic and terrifying fashion. The words of the ancient pact should resonate with every monodiabolist who dares to trade his immortal soul for the terrible powers of the Master:

“There is but one Black Master though men calle hym Sathanas & Beelzebub & Apolleon & Ahriman & Malik Tous… Ye abysse yawns & ye debt is to paye. Ye light fayles, ye shadows gather. There is no god but evil; no lite but darkness; no hope but doom—”

The Demon Pope” (pub. 1888) is a whimsical story about a Faustian pact with a twist, and diabolism in the innermost circle of the medieval Church. Considering the evil antics of the Inquisitors of said Church, and persistent rumors of a Devil-worshipping cabal at its heart, this tale might not be far off the mark!

The Black Mass” (pub. 1891) is an infamous excerpt from the French novel novel Là-bas (“The Damned”), about a seeker’s descent into the underworld of diabolism in late 19th century Paris. The Black Mass portrayed here was controversial in its day, and it remains one of the most disturbing and believable accounts of diabolical worship in the literature—“a madhouse, a monstrous pandemonium of prostitutes and maniacs” indeed. A must read!

Incense of Abomination” (pub. 1938) is a melancholy tale of Devil-worship, suicide and haunted souls, by the great pulp author Seabury Quinn. His depiction of Black Masses and Satanic orgies is first rate, as is his understanding of a major challenge for the faith: the tendency of disciples to backslide, doubt, succumb to depression and even suicide. The Devil’s religion is not for everyone! As Doctor Bentley puts it: “There’s an essential nastiness in Devil-worship which is revolting to the average man, not to mention its abysmal wickedness.” However, the beautiful young Marescha redeems the faith for many with her stirring words:

‘Take off your robe; that’s what we’re here for. This is our religion, the oldest in the world; it’s revolt against the goody-goodies, revolt against the narrowness of God; we live for pleasure and unbridled passion instead of abnegation and renunciation—life and love and pleasure in a world of vivid scarlet, instead of fear and dreariness in a world all cold and gray. That’s our creed and faith. We’re set apart, we’re marked for pleasure, we worshippers of Satan.’

Amen to that, sister!

The Witch” (pub. 1909) is a chapter from Marjorie Bowen’s classic novel “Black Magic”—an epic tale of two dashing young sorcerers’ quest for forbidden knowledge and power in medieval Europe. In this chapter, the sorcerers seek the counsel of a fellow diabolist and witch, as the love of one sorcerer for the other clashes with his romantic interest in a lady of the Court, and with their destiny to become the Devil’s chosen agents, who will put the Antichrist on the highest throne of power. Look for this entire outstanding novel to be published in a future installment of the Dark Lords’ Library of the Occult!

Hymn to Satan” (pub. 1913) is Aleister Crowley’s little ode to the Lord of this World. Despite this, the question of Crowley’s diabolical bone fides has been a subject of contention among occult scholars. Israel Regardie asserts that “anyone who says Crowley was a Satanist and a devil-worshipper should have his head examined.” Crowley, ever the trickster, is contradictory on the subject, but clearly states in his masterwork Magick in Theory & Practice:

The Devil does not exist. It is a false name invented by the Black Brothers to imply a Unity in their ignorant muddle of dispersions. A devil who had unity would be a God—“The Devil” is, historically, the God of any people that one personally dislikes.

Which begs the question: who are these “Black Brothers”, and how does one join? But we digress…

Satanism in the Nineteenth Century” (pub. 1896) is the first chapter from occult scholar A. E. Waite’s study Devil-Worship in France. Waite makes some interesting observations about the very active diabolist scene of late 19th century France, including the notorious Black Mass described by Huysmans in this collection. As Waite notes, the revival of the cultus diabolus in the epicenter of the (so-called) “Age of Enlightenment” is a testament to the timeless appeal of the Devil and His religion!

The Sabbath of the Sorcerers” (pub. 1896) is a chapter from A. E. Waite’s translation of Éliphas Lévi’s monumental occult classic, Transcendental Magic: Its Doctrine and Ritual. This excerpt describes various aspects of diabolical arcanum and Black Magickal practice, as they were known in pre-modern Europe. Lévi includes a description of the notorious Goëtic Black Evocation rite from the Grimoire of Pope Honorius, which was said to be means to summon the Devil Himself. A must read for all students of the Black Arts!

The Sanctuary” (pub. 1934) is a stand-out tale of secret Devil-worship at a country estate. It’s a beautiful parable of an undeniable fact: that even amidst the most idyllic surroundings, the Devil is ever-ready to rear His horny head, and human beings are only too willing to bow before Him. There is no sanctuary for unbelievers on Lord Satan’s black earth!
