Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

Having already delved into the vile doctrines of sun worship that C.S. Lewis has hidden in his books for children, The Chronicles of Narnia, it would seem that it could not get much worse, but it does.

The wicked queen, Jezebel, wife of Ahab, is perhaps the most devout worshipper of Baal mentioned in the Bible.  As a sun worshipper, and hater of God and His prophets, she is a graphic example of where sun worship leads a person.  Whether the woman in Revelation 2 was actually a woman named Jezebel or was simply being called by that name to tie her to that profane woman in the Old Testament is uncertain, but the link is there in either case.

This passage bears an interesting relation to the Lewis case in that he also has been allowed to teach and seduce God's servants in this church era.  In particular he has promoted Baal (sun) worship, and offered Christian children things to feed their minds which he had sacrificed to idols!  God gave Lewis space to repent in that Lewis had access to the truth and could have believed, but he did not.

The time is long past due to cry out against this wicked man's unspeakable Baal worship.  God has a profound hate for what Lewis has done, as can be seen in the passage above.  Lewis has endeavored to lead the children of Christians into the depths of Satan!

Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me...20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

As we look into these things we begin to understand why C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia are recommended by the makers of Dungeon's & Dragons and are(were) sold in occult bookstores.  His imagery is designed to fool the Christian reader while at the same time "enlightening" those initiated in the occult, witchcraft and Luciferianism.  Since Satan's religions are counterfeits of God's truth, it was, to some extent "easy" for Lewis to pull this off.

I remember trying to tell a Christian girl once that the New Age music she was listening was really wicked. Her response was to the effect that although she had bought it in the New Age section of the store, she liked the music and was not going to believe what it was. The question here is, Are we going to believe our presuppositions based on what Lewis and others claimed, or are we going to believe what Lewis actually wrote?

Looking again at The Magician's Nephew we find some disturbing things.

In the "creation" of Narnia some very revealing things come up.

On p. 99 , speaking of the "creation" of the stars it says, "One moment there had been nothing but darkness; next moment a thousand, thousand points of light leaped out -- single stars, constellations, and planets, brighter and bigger than any in our world. There were no clouds."

The phrase "a thousand, thousand points of light" leaps out at us!  The fact that Lewis would use this expression is bizarre at the very least, but it points to something much more sinister.

Alice Bailey, the Theosophist/Luciferian and co-founder of Lucis Trust and the Arcane School, in her 1957 book The Externaliztion of the Hierarchy tells us exactly what a Point of Light is.  "...[T]he men who comprise the occult leadership group known as the New Group of World Servers.  These individuals, she remarks are in service to 'the work of the Brotherhood...the Forces of Light.'  They are the ones who are to usher all of mankind from the darkness of outmoded Christianity and faded nationalism into the bright and shining 'New World Order.'"(1) 

In her book, Discipleship in a New Age, Bailey tells her occult followers to repeat, "I am a point of light within a greater light...I am a spark of sacrificial Fire, focused within the fiery will of (the Sun) God."(1)  What these servants of Satan are attempting to do by blending their "points of light" is to usher in the New World Order - the Age of Aquarius.

Was C.S. Lewis a "point of light" in Satan's service?  Why would he use such Luciferian terminology if he was not? Taken in the context of the other symbolism that he loads into this passage, it is certainly no accident. [Note that Bailey wrote her explanation of the thousand points of light in 1957, while The Magician's Nephew was published in 1955.  It is likely that Lewis got the terminology from Masonry, though I have not yet found that he was a Freemason.]

Jesus Christ is the true Light. John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. The "light" that Lewis' imagery points to however, is the counterfeit "light" of Lucifer, God's fallen cherub who wants the worship due to God only.  C.S. Lewis appears to be helping Satan to this devilish end.

Continuing on, we find the following in the description of the "creation" of Narnia:  "Then there came a swift flash like fire (but it burnt nobody) either from the sky or from the Lion itself, and every drop of blood tingled in the children's bodies..."

On page 105 of J.E. Cirlot's A Dictionary of Symbols we read some interesting information under "Fire."  "In Egyptian hieroglyphics, fire is also relate to the solar-symbolism of the flame, and associated in particular with the concept of life and health (deriving from the idea of body-heat).  It is also allied with the concept of superiority and control, showing that the symbol had by this time developed into an expression of spiritual energy.  The alchemists retained in particular the Heraclitean notion of fire as 'the agent of transmutation', since all things derived from, and return to, fire.  It is the seed which is reproduced in each successive life (and is thereby linked with the libido and fecundity).  In this sense as a mediator between forms which vanish and forms in creation, fire is, like water, a symbol of transformation and regeneration...Frazer lists many rites in which torches, bonfires, burning embers and even ashes are considered capable of stimulating the growth of the cornfield and the well-being of man and of animals.  However, anthropological research has furnished two explanations of the fire-festival (as it persists today in the Valencian bonfires on the night of St. Johns, fireworks and the illuminated Christmas tree)..."

One man believed that the fire-festivals were "imitative magic purporting to assure the supply of light and heat from the sun..."  Two other men felt that the aim was "the purification or destruction of the forces of evil..."  As Cirlot says, "...these two hypotheses are not opposing but complimentary. The triumphant power and the vitality of the sun...is tatamount to victory over the power of evil...; purification is the necessary sacrificial means of achieving the sun's triumph."  Cirlot continues on page 105-106, "Marius Schneider...distinguishes between two kinds of fire, depending upon their direction (or their function): fire as in the axis fire-earth (representing eroticism, solar heat and physical energy), and fire of the axis fire-air (linked with mysticism, purification or sublimation, and spiritual energy)...Fire in consequence, is an image of energy which may be found at the level of animal passion as well as on the plane of spiritual strength."

This is a rather lengthy passage to quote, but the implications of what Lewis wrote are so closely related to it, that it seemed best to do so.

In a mere 31 words, C.S. Lewis succeeded in capsulizing the entire concept above.  The flash like fire that burnt nobody expresses the purifying element (remember the witch, Jadis was there) that also grants fertility, health, and well-being, but also expresses Aslan's superiority as the solar-deity.  That they could not tell if it came from the earth or the Lion expresses the dual meaning of erotic, physical energy as well as mystical, spiritual energy. The tingling blood probably points to the superior power, purification, or the health/body heat idea.  Perhaps all three. All of this relates to alchemy and magic.  (Remember, Digory is The Magician's Nephew!)  To the workers of these black arts, fire is associated with creation!

The context in which Lewis makes this statement shows that he knew very well what he was saying.   He did not just stumble upon it.  First of all, it was totally unnecessary in the story.  There is no apparent reason for it in the flow of things.  Secondly, if this was an allegory of Biblical truth, there was no mention of such an event or occurance in Genesis 1.  What this points to is that C.S. Lewis apparently was thoroughly saturated with the knowledge of alchemy and magic; not surprising for a scholar of medieval literature.  That he could have brought so much together into a few words strongly indicates that he was an "initiated" believer in such occult ideas.

Time and space do not permit a full examination of this passage or others to see all Lewis' hidden meanings, but rest assured, there are plenty more.

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. As has been pointed out previously, C.S. Lewis' "conversion to Christianity" was very convenient and financially profitable to him. He has made merchandise of the saints and has brought in damnable heresies under the pretense of being a Christian teacher. What could speak more evil of the way of truth than to have books that many Christians claim are allegories of God's truth sold in occult bookstores and used and loved by witches?  His damnation slumbereth not, by the words he wrote he condemned himself. Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Continuing on in the depths of Satan that Lewis opened to Christian children's minds:
