The occult is a rapidly growing global religious practice. Occult practices permeate every hierarchical echelon throughout human civilization. The origins of witchcraft, sorcery, mediums and soothsayers are as ancient as the first Mesopotamian civilization. People are captivated by supernatural activities for which there is no scientific explanation. We want the power to know what is unknowable. More specifically, the populace desires detailed information about its future (horoscope). Governments, especially those with religious rudiments that underscore its constitutional structure, covet the ability to influence the minds of its citizenry. It is our lust to know the unknowable and control what is uncontrollable that drives us to explore by any means necessary, including dark magic or occultism.

Spiritual warfare is not a game, and the devil is not an innocent puppy. He is the master deceiver, thief, and murderer, and the force behind nearly all evil. He is full of all kinds of cruelty, pain, curses, and blight known to the human family. To survive his attacks, you must realize that the devil is a real enemy, hell-bent on destroying you. I challenge you to get serious today about determining methods to rebuke him and keep him from hindering your service to the Lord. Where did Satan come from? Did God create the Devil? Is God responsible for evil? Such questions plague the individual who wrestles with the existence of our adversary in the light of the Bible's revelation of the holiness of God. Philosophy can never give a satisfactory answer to these questions. The only satisfying answer is God's answer, found in his Word. If we are going to combat this enemy known as "Satan," then we must know his motives and his methods. Our goal in this book is to resolve this and answer many other questions as we talk about every believer's responsibility in spiritual warfare.

In October of 2016, our estimate of how many galaxies there are in the universe jumped from 200 billion to 2 trillion, which begs the question: is there life outside of our planet? And if so, what does that do to our theology? Unless we come in contact with extraterrestrials, we can only speculate an answer based on what we know of God and science. In Alien Theology, Pastor Bradley enters into a conversation that started before Christ and considers the possibility of alien life in light of Scripture, science, and logic.
Is homosexuality good or evil? What is the origin of this sexual preference and its implications on the society? Was this in the original plan of God (nature)? Who is actually behind it and for what purpose? Are the gays and lesbians truly lured and trapped by unseen forces? And what will be its effect on the presence and coming generations? What are the views of Christianity, Islam, traditional religion, etc, on the issue? How dangerous are Anal and Oral sex – any health risks? Can they result in anal and oral cancers and several other infections? Is homosexuality an occult practice? All these questions and more are what we will be trying to proffer answers for in this book. Same-sex relationship is actually not new to humanity, but has for some time now been in the global consciousness, especially with the systematic approval given to it by western leaders in the guise of human rights, gay rights, minority rights, coalition movements, etc. In fact, some of the leaders and their puppet organizations not just preach it, but bully other nations into accepting and promoting same. They promise aids, grants and other developmental assistance as compensation. Why are they so obsessed with this and whose agenda is it? In this work we will try to compress our very objective, discussions in the following electrifying, illuminating and informative seven chapters: The Gay Rebellion, In the Beginning, The Occult Dimension, The Health Implication, The Psychological Effects, The Avoidable Consequences and What Should We Do? These are truly very informative discussions, facts that will help you make a valuable decision whether to be involved in homosexuality or not. The decision will be entirely yours! PUBLISHER: TEKTIME
A broadly interdisciplinary study of the pervasive secrecy in America cultural, political, and religious discourse. The occult has traditionally been understood as the study of secrets of the practice of mysticism or magic. This book broadens our understanding of the occult by treating it as a rhetorical phenomenon tied to language and symbols and more central to American culture than is commonly assumed. Joshua Gunn approaches the occult as an idiom, examining the ways in which acts of textual criticism and interpretation are occultic in nature, as evident in practices as diverse as academic scholarship, Freemasonry, and television production. Gunn probes, for instance, the ways in which jargon employed by various social and professional groups creates barriers and fosters secrecy. From the theory wars of cultural studies to the Satanic Panic that swept the national mass media in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Gunn shows how the paradox of a hidden, buried, or secret meaning that cannot be expressed in language appears time and time again in Western culture. These recurrent patterns, Gunn argues, arise from a generalized, popular anxiety about language and its limitations. Ultimately, Modern Occult Rhetoric demonstrates the indissoluble relationship between language, secrecy, and publicity, and the centrality of suspicion in our daily lives.
Christian Giudice's Occult Imperium explores Italian national forms of Occultism, chiefly analyzing Arturo Reghini (1878-1946), his copious writings, and Roman Traditionalism. Trained as a mathematician at the prestigious University of Pisa, Reghini was one of the three giants of occult and esoteric thought in Italy, alongside his colleagues Julius Evola (1898-1974) and Giulian Kremmerz (1861-1930). Using Reghini's articles, books, and letters, as a guide, Giudice explores the interaction between occultism, Traditionalism, and different facets of modernity in early-twentieth-century Italy. The book takes into consideration many factors particular to the Italian peninsula: the ties with avant-garde movements such as the Florentine Scapigliatura and Futurism, the occult vogues typical to Italy, the rise to power of Benito Mussolini and Fascism, and, lastly, the power of the Holy See over different expressions of spirituality. Occult Imperium explores the convergence of new forms of spirituality in early twentieth-century Italy.
The Occult Philosophy Workbook is a must-have introduction to the concepts and teachings of contemporary Western occultism and can be read as an accompaniment to Greer's previous book, The Way of the Golden Section. This thought-provoking book was not written simply to be read cover-to-cover in one sitting: it is instead a stimulating and well-crafted raw material for occult studies and readers are encouraged to read the 52 lessons across an entire year. Throughout the book, students will be taught through four in-depth and engaging modules: 'The Planes of Being', 'Spiritual Evolution' 'Cycles of Life and Death' and 'The Way of Occultism' and will exit the year with a solid foundation in occultism, preparing them for more advanced future study. The Occult Philosophy Workbook intends to train and stimulate the mind, opening it up to unfamiliar ways of thinking through various new techniques and challenges, such as discursive meditation, awareness exercises and affirmation.
