Demonology by Smudge Pot or I know some Demons and they are really nice people.Submitted by Smudge Pot on Sun, 02/02/2014 - 17:33
This is gonnna go deep and if you are under attack or vulnerable you don't wanna read this.
For many generations my people wondered why, why did not God protect us when we were slaughtered?
And back when I started asking there was just a fragment of our tibe left. Some of our medicine people lasted just long enough. Sunny Billy and Nicholas Schumatoff and some others....Grey Fox and Black Fox and not much others. We were Llenappe and signatories to Delaware. And we always tried to do the right thing but we did not understand. We did not understand why our medicines no longer work.
I also did not understand why chrisian elements in my family eschewed and literally cast us out as demons. The healing spirits in us and our tradition were attacked. But things did not improve, my people were as attacked then as now and why?
In our old tradition we were aware of 4 Powers that God put in place to look after us and to heals us and to give us vision and happiness and now the new regime calld this "demonology". There is now one unitary God and all things fall under His principality. And this seemed confirmed in reality because when the Wasi, the white faces came here and made war on us, we fought, we prayed until we sweated, we tried and tried to save our women and our children but we were beaten. And made slaves or killed. And God did not help us. And our medicines were useless. And we did not understand why. We, like many traditions of faith, are taught just that: have faith, God will deliver us.
We did not understand even though some of our greatest warrior/priests saw the logic in Chrisianity as even the great Goyanthaley, the great Chiricahua Apache priest know to us as Geh Hron Im Aho, whom you call Jeronimo which in your language literally means "death from above" said and I quote;
In the old ways we hoped that familial relationships would be restored in the next place but we had no way of knowing. It seems to me that Christianity is a more direct path to the Holy One.
We're listening to a man that saw his whole people, his 4 wives, his kids, his dedicated band of warrior-priests killed and all their land taken. Jeronimo died undefeated in battle but he lost faith at the end. And he died wondering:
Where did we go wrong, oh God? What shat in your bed Almighty? Here all this time we thought we were doing right by you and things were good to my Llennappe people, the word Llennappe isn't even our language, it's what the Algonquinn called us and it meant something like "those simple fish mongers" or soemthing or "peaceful people" with a tinge of ignorance: we were too stupid to make war on others and too stupid to make war for ourselves. Any place we were not welcome we simply went away from. Those who liked nice fresh fish were our allies. And that's all we did. My people were expert fisher people.
So learning Christianity was kind of a secret I had to know. Most indians accept the blessed forgiveness of Messiah because we're aware of our own faults; "for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" and we're happy that Jesus Christ came to redeem our sins but why?
Why this war? Why did our people have to die? It just doesn't make sense. In our paradigm we have competing interests, we're pretty much polytheists in a unitary sense of the Great Spirit kinda binding these competitive interests together and CHRISTIANITY IS SUPPOSED TO RESOLVE THIS so why is there not peace?
Why did God manifest himself with the war paint to us?
It was not until some appostate Christians sat me down and explained things in a way that made sense. I'm not asking you to accept this as truth but it just made thigns make sense to me. I wonder if this message might strengthen your faith and undertanding and with this comes belief not as an ignorant but a condidred position;
It is written that Satan was created to be God's right hand man and God entrusted Satan to look after the family business. Ok so first off, God isn't in the business of creating demons, he created an angel called Satan which means "light bringer" or in fact "Lucifer" (which is just a derivative in your languages).
And I'll drop you the hint I got from the book of Exodus where God is intructing his people to walk and He says "as you turn your backs on this place of pain and suffering you will say where is your prize now oh Morning Star? Where is your joy now oh Child Of The Dawn?"
Hey guys...we know that language. That is not what one says to a hated enemy. That is not what one says when you are God that created everything and everybody that will exist and will ever exist. Our God is both omniscient and omnipotent: he knows all of time and he can change any thing at any time He choses.
So where is this competition coming from? Child Of The Dawn? Light Bringer? And we are to turn our backs? Hey ask a stupid question get a stupid answer but dude, God, God of our ancestors, if you are having a problem with this person why not just make them cease to exist? Not have a fight, just erase them. Remove them from this picture. Why not?
Well here is the appostate answer and this is demonology. Just stop reading now if it shakes your faith, that not my intention but Satan is not a he. She's a she. And she was created to be God's second wife. Not only that but the demons? That's just another word for angel which is a purpose-bred and created being. And her demons? All hand-crafted, purpose-buitl beings with one mission: love her. Defend her always. No matter what. And God so loved her that he gave her warriors but also some of the best he had: Muse.
Some of you know Muse as the demon Azra'el. Azrael. And here's where we might diverge: we love Azrael because we remember him. I love him, we are old buddies and he's welcome in my house.
Here's another thing only some of you know: we are unique and created in the image of God but the angels are not. They have no power of choice. Even the really evil ones, Moshka, Turriya, Herem, Jahannum, Sheol....Sheol...
Sheol is hell. By definition. Samedhi is pain and fear and suffering. All of these, all of them are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing which is protecting Satan. When God creates a warrior he makes them bad nasty. The only definition I find for hell is a condition of being severed from our relationship with God.
But God did this by choice and since we are created in His image, I think we can just relate as He does: I need no other explanation. It's lonely at the top. If you are the only one singular being in the universe it must be just SO LONELY.
Let's revert to scripture for just one moment and read "In the beginning there was the word and the word was God and the word was with God and the face of God was hovering above the waters".
The waters are Satan's domain, God claims the Earth but first he willed it to another.
Wait it gets more complicated?
Yeah, Lucifer is God's second wife and the first was Lilleth.
I know jack-squat about Lilleth but at one point he granted her sovereignty over the land and God tried to take it back but it's a hotly contested divorce because......
when God made his wives he gave them almost EVERYTHING. Way more than he granted us. We are simply created in His image. Demons are just tools. In creating Satan God made himself another God and endowed her with immorality for one thing. And incredible powers for another. And He created her a whole order of angels to serve her FOREVER. And that's all they ever do. They never stop and you might be able to tell when we do things that are powerful and we feel that force of right, there's often a backlash. Know what I'm talking about? I bet you do. Try to do something right and we get smacked down. That's why I'm Smudge Pot. Pick a low name and maybe they won't notice me. Because it's dangerous out there.
We are in the middle of a war. Short language, we are created beings in the middle of a fight that happened way, way before us and we are part of it's resolution. I can't tell you jack squat about the Lilleth story but I can tell you it's why we as men love women and why we can't endure as a species without them. I wonder if this is God's realtime experiment of seeing if He can work out this conflict but this all just points back to what I told you;
we are created in His image and given the power of choice. We just weren't informed of our full purpose.
Now let's bring this back to utility. God created us with power of choice and not the angels (demons) and just like we can ACCEPT muse to sing or be creative (love you Azrael) we can refuse the warriors (demon begone!) and we are presently being influenced by all of these powers.
If you think we don't have influence in realtime over God then ask me to tell you the real story of Abraham.
Also keep to what you are told: evil hates to be named but if you encounter some of the slayers, do not dally, RUN! RUN FAST AND FAR! Samedhi is a true deomon which we define simply as a hunger that cannot be satisfied. I think Satan created or commissioned that one simply to get up God's nose. Remember the story of Job? Well that argument didn't stop there.
AHO i have told a story and it's not helpful in the context of our native spiritualtiy but maybe just maybe it might make a few things make sense, if anyting I say contradicts real shepherds like Pastor Chuck Baldwin whom I know loves you for sure, totally go with pastor Baldwin. OK?
And I didn't mean to scare you to death and with this I pray the holy name of Y~H be upon you and your children and in the blessed name of Yashua, Jesus, Son Of God. Ancestors be with my people in all places aho.
(EDITED TO INCLUDE) oh wow i almost forgot the whole point here. You have power of choice like unto God and you can literally cast out demons and they can only access you if you consent. So think of the evil times in your life and consider that with our without knowing the significance, you gave that demon access and next time you can just say no, you can always, always, always say no and if you have a demon in your life we can gather and affirm your right to say no. JUST SAY NO to the bad ones and say JUST MAYBE to the others.
