Modern Luciferianism - Rev. F. Nagash
By definition Luciferianism could be construed as the worship of the deity or arch-type of the energy named Lucifer. Luciferianism is often misrepresented in the public view and often mistaken for Satanism even though true Luciferians will tell you Lucifer is separate from Satan. Luciferianism and Satanism share some very similar views and attitudes but are separate entities unto themselves. There are two aspects to Luciferianism one being Deistic and the other being anti-Deistic both being acceptable as Luciferian aspects. Within the different sects of Luciferianism there are underlying principals which both adhere to, based on principals of the four kings of Hell. Living a life based on the principals of the four kings we achieve self-deification. First I'll start with the Lucifer principle than continue on to the others.
The Lucifer Principle
Lucifer's number is nine, nine being the number of pride as any number nine is multiplied into returns to itself. (Example: 9x5=45 - 4+5=9) Lucifer also being known as the "Angel of pride". This represents being proud of all things we do!
Lucifer's color is blue, blue being the color of the sky and water representing that Lucifer is all around and within us. That Lucifer is the prime element/energy that motivates and cultivates our world. Other colors Lucifer is associated with are white and silver, so accordingly altar pentagrams must be surrounded by blue with a silver/white pentagram with a black border (Shown on page ).
Lucifer's element is air, air being that which allows us to speak his words of truth as his manifestation on Earth.
Lucifer's direction is the east, east being where a lot of the sacred wisdom and the great wars will come from. It was once stated to me by a Germanic Luciferian that "a wise Magickian from Persia an Arab will come and bring with him the aeon of Lucifer" or in lay-mans terms the Antichrist.
Lucifer's human element is wisdom or applied knowledge, with time, study and practice it is believed that man can attain the Lucifer state, this only through applied knowledge or wisdom.
Lucifer's altar element is incense, incense being a representation of air, known to Luciferians as "sweet air".
Lucifer's planetary element is Venus, Lucifer being known as the morning star or first star of morning, otherwise known as Venus. Venus, known as the "Planet of love" represents the beauty of Lux Ferre (Latin for light bearer/bringer or Lucifer).
Lucifer's consort/Female aspect is Lilith, Lilith being the first wife of Adam before becoming the queen of the damned. It is said Lilith comes from the mud and the dust and is queen of the Succubi/Luciferic Witch. When Lucifer and Lilith mate they equal the androgynous being known as "Baphomet" or the "Goat of Mendes" also called "God of the Witches". Liliths number is two, also known as the number of the eternal female. Lilith is considered an equal to Lucifer to some, and the feminine aspect of Lucifer himself to others.
Lucifer's highest manifestation is through understanding of oneself, this being the goal of the Magickian/Luciferian to begin with, being as Lucifer himself, total awakening of the human god-form Lucifer. Without knowing the self one cannot hope to achieve any real understanding of anything else. Applied knowledge in action is a prime example of Lucifer's manifestation!
The Satan Principle
Satan's number is six, six being the number of "the beast" representing mans carnal nature being set free. Releasing the wolf within if you want to call it so. Sin no longer exists, nothing is sinful but to deny yourself of pleasure in your Utopia.
Satan's color is red, red being the color of emotion, Satan being the guardian of lust, anger, happiness, sadness etc�being released.
Satan's element is fire, fire being an appropriate representation of emotional outburst or ritual. Destruction and lust are the two prime elements of fire and Satan.
Satan's direction is south, south representing the dissension from God-hood to the ascension to God-hood. Creation of ones Utopia.
Satan's human element is anger, lust and primal emotion, representing the release of emotion through sex or anger and crushing of ones enemies.
Satan's altar element are the candles, Candles representing holding the flame of Satan or emotion, primal man.
Satan's planetary aspect is Mars, Mars being the planet that represents justice. Due to the biblical story of Satan punishing the sinners Satan was at times called the "Avenging Angel" or "Angel of Justice".
Satan's highest manifestation is through (wo)mans full release of the carnal will, self explanatory.
The Leviathan Principle
Leviathan's number is three, three being the number of Chaos as three can go into six and nine but doesn't have the stability of the number one.
Leviathan's color is blue, blue being the color of the wild oceans untamed, (wo)mans carnal side overcoming him/her, chaos.
Leviathan's element is water, water being that which our human forms are primarily created of. This represent the unity of matter and anti-matter, chaos and order, yin with yang.
Leviathan's direction is west, west being used to represent chaos and disorder.
Leviathan's human element is chaos, chaos meaning manifestation of order from the chaos of the nothing. No longer controlling ones actions, words etc� and not remembering fragments of time due to anger or lust are prime examples of this principal.
Leviathan's altar element is water, used in the chalice as a sacrament to or as Leviathan.
Leviathan's planet is man or microcosm, representing the bond between man and his own lost natural self.
Leviathan's highest manifestation comes from man realizing his own deification, Just as God can create and destroy so can we. Just as water is unpredictable and can be calm one moment and crashing another so are we. That's the gift of/from Leviathan!
The Belial Principle
Belial's number is one, one being the number that represents earth and remaining firm to ones convictions. Bullheadedness in a good way!
Belial's color is black, black being the color of the primordial chaos before the Earth. Most Luciferic sigils have black in them in some form representing the Earth.
Belial's element is Earth, Earth being the element that sustains humanity. The carnal laws of man are dictated by the laws of the Earth.
Belial's direction is north, north being the representation of constantly striving forward and upward changing and recreating our Utopia bigger and better.
Belial's human element is remaining firm to ones own beliefs, not dancing around in pools of religious feces. Finding a philosophy which is your own and sticking to it.
Belial's altar element is the incense coal, representing Earth and (Wo)mankind holding the flame of Lucifer.
Belial's planet is Earth, previously explained.
Belial's highest manifestation is through understanding and living the natural laws of our carnal self, self explanatory.
To the Luciferian nothing comes before the self and its development and progress into the new or "manifested self". We constantly strive to improve our-self and our "Utopia" to live the only life we'll have to the fullest and spit on those who do little yet expect big things to happen. We eliminate all whom are parasites from our utopia, deeming them dead and forgetting their existence. Luciferians are by nature very solitary even when within a group such as the Church of Lucifer. Group activity primarily consists of lectures on traditional Luciferian magick and religion as well as the occasional ceremonial ritual held on holidays. It is because of our solitary nature and individuality that we do not expect every Luciferian to "Love thy brother" as the Christians, Wiccans and even some Luciferic and Satanic groups do. Even a few Luciferians are real "A$$-Holes" who even I can't stand, let alone love like a brother. I'll leave the "sacred brotherhoods" to the Christians, Masons, Wiccans etc� In my Utopia very few and select are worthy of love, more are worthy of my hate, I find brotherhoods in the L.H.P a ridiculous notion based on a need for acceptance and a "Thrill or adventure".
Luciferian philosophy is very anti-outsiders, select family and friends are all whom make up each individual Luciferian family. Friends often being more like a member of the family rather than an acquaintance or someone of use. Everything in your Utopia is a manifestation of your own will, for good or bad. If you let someone use or take advantage of you, don't complain about it later, eliminate them like the parasite they are. Tell them you no longer will let them feed off of you and you don't want them around you any longer, erase them from your existence. If you want more money get a better job, or higher education to be paid more, the weight of your own existence is in your hands. This total responsibility of the creation and maintenance of your Utopia is what frightens off most people, we're not most people! Luciferians come from all walks of life, from blue to white collar workers striving to make their own lives more fruitful and pleasant and who don't mind stepping on toes to get there. We do not believe in apathy, self-destructive behaviors, loving everyone, killing (Physically) in the name of the COL, Satan, Lucifer or something else self-delusional. We are after all simply, Social Realists and Utopians.
"Manifested self - The self once all Luciferian principals are adhered to, the manifestation of a/the spirit through the self or a higher self"
"Utopia - everything that is around you that has some form of impact on you or your life. We create our Utopia by keeping the select few around us who are worthy of our love, getting your ideal job and or accomplishment or recognition of ones natural skills. Simply living the life we most desire and dream about"
