The following are his exact words…
I would like to begin this properly, with prayer. Ephesians 6:12-18
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;…
We pray in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
A brief description of necromancy would at least include that it is an unlawful quest for immortality. It is a powerful science, and dark art. Practicing necromancers who know what they’re doing believe and strive for it passionately.
All of the information I would share in these writings is from the point of view of a rogue necromancer whom was almost fully self taught. There are operating levels of orders containing men of knowledge and experience far beyond what I will be discussing. I wish only to shine a light upon the shadowy corners necromancy festers in.
As a young child, I have seen apparitions; often fleeting images of tall dark shadowy figures. At first, only in my peripheral vision and only enough to briefly catch my attention. As I grew I came to call him ‘the shadow man’.
This sort of thing quickly became of interest to me, paranormal research, occult and sorcery were all things that i studied avidly. I would often buy books of magic and witchcraft and search the internet for whatever I could find. At first I used a disorganized combination of magics, components and methods to attempt to achieve better results than that which were promised in these rather childish guides.
In jr.high school I began spending a lot of time at an old book store. The operator of which was a collector of old books and trinkets, many of which he kept in the back room of the store. We had regular customers that were heavily involved in the occult and things. One day after they left, I mentioned to the the clerk that I practiced occult magics as well, and he had recalled a couple of old books that he had found somewhere on the subject. I used them so often that he eventually gave them to me.
They were rough and beaten and had no covers. The paper was stained and the ink in places had pressed into the adjacent pages. But these were a truly unique thing, I could tell instantly. After one look, they became the pillar with which I would base all my previous knowledge and practice on. They were brimming with information and illustrations.
Once I had felt that I understood the material, and had properly prepared all of the components I would need, I began performing regular rituals and rites. Often things like circles of protection, or consorts with demonic entities as well as passage through spiritual gates.
I believe that my practice and general interest in the subject drew others and came to expose themselves as practitioners. It did not take long before we decided to pool our efforts to create a ritual of greater power. It took only this one disastrous, failure for me to never attempt necromancy in a group again. The overall incompetence of my cohorts was astounding to me. They seemed to take the subject as a play time or some joke more than actual magic. It ended up being me to gather the supplies, find the spot, prepare and then carry the whole ritual. They barely knew their parts, however, we did manage to get some results. Unfortunately, when we did, the appearing entity was asked stupid questions by the others and it seemed a wasted effort on my part.
I learned way later that this was the giving of a spirit of rage, of which I only subconsciously accepted into me and agreed to cultivate. This spirit was fed bountifully by the overall failure of my group attempts and so I continued to practice on my own. I then spent years practicing, dissecting and stitching together spells and rituals of others’ works with my own original usages.
By the time I would finish high school I had spent the 4 years looking the part of a necromancer, and playing the part as well. I had been subject to sleep deprivation and dietary restrictions due to conditioning for the spells and had chosen to appear like a vampire in hopes the dark spirits I dealt with would one day upgrade my mortal shell into that of a true vampire. I would like to note now, that I had not tried a drug or alcohol at all until after I had graduated. There is no possibility of any of this being a drug induced hallucination.
After some time being plagued by my ever growing spirit of rage and the shadow man and everything that comes with delving into the dark arts, I finally became spiritually drained enough to quit the actual practice of spells. Though after what I had encountered I was in disbelief and anger with God. My best friend was a devout christian and had been praying for me to stop for some great long time, we both attribute my survival partially on that fact, looking back on it now.
It was not until I was about to graduate college, that I finally went to God to explain to me more about necromancy. It finally occurred to me that maybe there were good spirits too, and that maybe the bible could offer me some real insight into the occult realm. Of course, it did this 7 fold.
Necromancy is even directly indicated in the Bible as something we should not practice. And if read as the historical document I believe it to be, offers deep insights into the spirit realm and how to be guarded from those who would try to manipulate us from it.
In closing I would like to strongly urge and reader who may become curious to resist the temptation to research this topic too much. Finding out about it, and what it can do to people may be fine, but I would stray anyone from viewing any incantations, illustrations or instructions even briefly. Some things are better left unknown.
Though I am glad to have potentially revealed this practice of the occult to some, I am also well aware of the seductiveness of this underworld. The elders of our churches do not speak much about this subject and it is for good reason. Much of their validity is based on the attention they receive. I hope this has been helpful and enlightening.
Deuteronomy 18 -
10There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Be well and God bless
