Fifty years ago this upcoming October, the so-called National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, aka “the Mobe,” held a march on Washington. The highlight of the protest was to be an exorcism ritual and supernatural levitation of the Pentagon, which supposedly would bring about the end of the war.
As protestors encircled the Pentagon, they were led in an incantation resisting in the war “in the name of Zeus, in the name of Anubis, god of the dead… in the name of the lives of the soldiers in Vietnam who were killed because of a bad karma, in the name of sea-born Aphrodite, in the name of Magna Mater, in the name of Dionysus, Zagreus…in the name of Hermes, in the name of the Beak of Sok…in the name of Rah, Osiris, Horus, Nepta, Isis (and) in the name of the flowing living universe.”
That 1967 anti-war protest comes to mind following Friday’s protest against President Trump by the nation’s occultist community. While those who encircled the Pentagon a half-century ago knew they were participating in theater of the absurd, those who answered the midnight call on Friday to cast “binding” spells on the president were dead serious.
That includes Michael M. Hughes, a “magical thinker” who has written two occult novels, with a third, “Demon Lights,” scheduled for release this spring. An activist Democrat, Hughes claims no credit for initiating the occultist attack on President Trump. But no one has done more than the Baltimore native to promote it.
In fact, Hughes posted an article on the far left web site Medium providing detailed instructions on how demonically influenced Trump resisters were to bind the man whom God has set in authority over America.
They were to assemble assorted “components” with which to perform the binding ritual, including a small “unflattering photo of Trump.” They were then to “(s)ay a prayer for protection and invoke blessing from (their) preferred spirit or deity.”
Incantations were to follow: “Hear me, oh spirits of water, earth, fire, and air, heavenly hosts, demons of the infernal realms and spirits of the ancestors. I call upon you to bind Donald J. Trump.” Then the small, unflattering picture of the president was to be set afire and the occultists were to pronounce, “loudly and with increasing passion,” “So mote it be.”
Hughes thinks there nothing unGodly about his spell-casting, actually claiming, “I have been made aware of a number of Christian magicians who will be calling upon Jesus Christ to bind Donald Trump, some of them utilizing Psalm 109, in fact. So this is a very ecumenical movement :-).”
Well, there may be some magicians who joined Hughes and other occultists in casting binding spells on President Trump. But they absolutely are not Christians. They are Satan’s imps.
Indeed, the Word of God declares that there shall not be found among His people “one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.”
