The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, thatís the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.
15 March, 1998
The sermonet for this week will undoubtedly shock quite a few, but please donít give up with the reading until you are through. You see the truth will set you free but you have to hear the truth, understand the truth, and believe the truth before it (the truth) can do you any good.
And just so you can all be as prepared as possible to receive this truth, letís say a word of prayer before we start: Our Heavenly Father, we come before You today with a sincere desire to hear and understand the truth of Your Word. Lord please open up our minds and allow us to have a clear and unmistakable awareness of the real truth within it. We receive Your Word Lord, as found in the pages of the Holy Bible, and we give You all the praise and glory for it. Thank You Lord for all the good that will result from this message today, because what we do we do it all in the name of Jesus. Amen.
OK so just what is this mysterious message we are going to cover today? Well, would you believe vampires? And for those of you who might have led a sheltered life style, Websterís defines the word vampire to mean: in folklore and popular superstition, a corpse that becomes reanimated and leaves itís grave at night to suck the blood of sleeping persons. Thatís what Websterís says and I would imagine that any of you who are in your right mind would consider this a pretty gross subject; but then again just maybe you wouldnít.
You see itís a known fact that Satan is a master when it comes to singing lullabies (songs that put you to sleep). And regardless of how sweet his singing might be, we must all remember that he is still the devil. And just because heís got a great voice donít mean nothing... because itís the wordís of his songs that are meant to kill, steal, and destroy. So thatís the reason why, if weíre smart, when Satanís around we should all be running for the hills... but all too often we donít. And of course in order for me to show you what I mean, please allow me the opportunity to give you an example.
As far back as I can remember there has always been horror movies about vampires. But over the years these gruesome bloodsucking come-back-to-life dead people have increasingly become much more acceptable and even downright loving. Take for instance The Adamís Family. I remember when their TV show first came out, it was an unmistakably instantaneous hit. I mean who could resist such fun loving characters? But it didnít stop there. Because it was also through the wonders of TV that we were introduced to an irresistibly lovable character named Count Dracula... and of course he was on one of the most popular childrenís show of all times (Sesame Street).
So what am I trying to get at? The truth of the matter is that Satan is singing a pretty song and we are all about to fall asleep. I mean just take a look around the El Paso and Mexico area. Both the young and old have a uncanny affection for these blood sucking dead. There are TV shows everywhere glorifying them as decent human beings, and some people have actually picked up a nickname after them (Chici Dracula). In fact vampires are so popular that many of the females have started wearing blood red lipstick and hairstyles to match the image of Mrs. Adams (what was her name?).
You see this image of Dracula is becoming accepted... but oh if they only knew the truth. And of course this truth is what this message is all about... and thatís what Iím about to tell you. Because it was this one guy (along with his wife), William and Sharon Schnoebelen, who wrote a book entitled Lucifer Dethroned A true story (published by Chick Publications) that Iím going to brief you on (tell you all about it). And itís through his real life experience, as documented in his book, that I will show you the truth about vampire practices in the church of today.
So just for starters, letís read the overview of this book from itís back cover: "HE WAS A SATANIST! His checks to the Church of Satan made that clear. But when a lone Christian bank clerk had the courage to write on one of those checks, "Iím praying for you in Jesus name," William Schnoebelenís life came apart. His occultic powers disappeared, and everything went wrong! Schnoebelen was coming face to face with a power greater than Satan. Here is his compelling true story. Youíll see what Satan can do to a man, and what Jesus Christ can do for a man. If Schnoebelen, crazed by blood lust and headed for murder, could be changed by Jesus Christ, ANYONE can! If youíve ever thought that someone you know is too far gone to be reached, hereís proof that, through prayer, you can reach them!"
OK, so thatís what the book is all about, but weíre going to skip most of it anyway. Because itís only towards the end of the book (chapter 18 to be exact) that I want to use this true story about William Schnoebelen as an introduction to the message. So beginning our reading on page 259, "Even I was not prepared for the Grailís "final piece of the puzzle." I learned that the "Holy Grail of Immortality" was actually the bloody chalice of VAMPIRISM! As was mentioned at the beginning of this book, you have no idea what itís like to awaken to the need for the taste of blood in your mouth...
As this book is being written, another media cycle is glorifying the patron saint of vampirism, Vadislau Basarab -- also known as Vlad Teoes (Vlad the Impaler) or Vlad Dracula... Every ten years or so, Hollywood can be counted on to resurrect "Dracula" and we have a flurry of films about the Undead. What is Tinseltown trying to sell us? The lie of eternal youth and eternal beauty has never been more seductive, and itís cost has never been higher. I know, because I bought that lie -- hook, line and fang. I learned the unimaginable price which had to be paid. How did I come to a place where I was willing to forsake all that was normal in humanity for a taste of what I believed would be immortality? I did not wake up one morning as a "vampire-in-training" As we have seen, it was a gradual process of seduction, and I believed that I was putting together the pieces of an immense and highly secret cosmic jigsaw puzzle. Naturally, the dark forces which manipulated me had no mercy upon me.
The vampire cult -- for such it was -- was to be the last and most damnable step in my exploration of Satanism... in an old Russian Orthodox church in downtown Chicago... I eventually made contact with the powers which were to draw me deeper into the vampiric branch of the Brotherhood.
It was vital that I assume the mantle of Draculaís order of priesthood, just as I thought I had assumed the mantle of Jesusí priesthood through Catholicism and Orthodoxy. It would be the final missing line of apostolic authority I sought.
Thus, I needed to train and develop for that priesthood as well. I was assigned a mentor who taught me an incredibly twisted form of Christianity. I was told that the gospel of John was a secret document with incredible "Gnostic secrets" buried within it -- that John the Apostle still walked the earth today as a nearly 2,000-year-old vampire initiated into vampirism by Jesus Himself!
The Johannine apostolate, though rooted in what is today called Freemasonry, supposedly led its devotees ultimately to the sacramental consumption of human blood and organs to sustain life forever...
The very cornerstone of the Satanic cultís existence and survival lay in the central ritual of Orthodoxy and Catholicism -- the Eucharist (Mass) or "Divine Liturgy." I soon learned for myself the vital link between the doctrine of Transubstantiation (that the bread and wine is LITERALLY turned into the Body and Blood of Christ) and the Nosferatu.
I eagerly allowed my body to be gradually transformed through injections of special herbs and drugs, thinking I was following the footsteps of John, the Beloved. Gradually, my appetite for food began to diminish, and my sensitivity to sunlight increased markedly.
Finally, on a special night I was allowed to drink blood from the veins of my mentor... Supposedly, for a vampire to survive, he or she must drink a substantial amount of blood each day -- just as humans must eat... Thus, Jesusí solution for His vampiric priesthood was supposedly the "magic" of Transubstantiation. It is Catholic and Orthodox doctrine that the entire body of Jesus is contained in the host or wafer. Similarly, the entire blood of Jesus -- the blood of a 33-year-old male adult, some nine pints -- is miraculously contained within the chalice of wine.
Since all members of this Nosferatic priesthood must first be priests of the Catholic or Eastern Orthodox Rite, they all had the power to produce in their liturgies every day more than enough sacramental "blood" to slake their thirst. And it was real blood (at least so we believed).
Catholic priests were required by canon law to celebrate the liturgy every day, unless prevented by illness or some serious emergency. Thus, in the sacramental wine-turned-blood, we had a ready made supply for our needs, without ever having to go out and attack people like the fabled vampires of the films. The only reason for drinking blood from a living person was either for pleasure, or for initiation into the vampire cult.
Within days, I found myself living almost exclusively off the elements of the communion rite, with a more-than-occasional use of the blood of my willing coven priestesses for variety."
OK, so that was what the book had to say, but what do you think about all that? Well some of you need to close your mouth before a fly gets in, but the thing to remember is that this is true story and these things are going on all around us at an ever increasing rate of speed. And one of the reasons why they are gaining such popularity is because people are gradually being conditioned and trained to accept these kind of things (Satanís lullaby)... and itís even happening in church.
Now Iím sure you are all wondering about the rest of the story, so, if you donít mind Iíll clue you into a little bit more of Billís (Williamís) life before chapter 18. I can only imagine but Iím pretty certain that most of you are asking "how in the world did he ever manage to get into the ungodly situation that he was in?" Can you even picture in your mind training and conditioning yourself to drink blood? Well here was Bill, a vampire, and he wasnít even close to being the vampire as seen in Websterís or the movies. Bill was what you would consider a normal walking talking living human being... until that one dark and deadly fateful night.
It all started innocently enough, during his early childhood years, on one festive Halloween night. He liked dressing up and playing trick-or-treat just like so many other kids do. But it was on this particular Halloween night in 1959 that he was introduced to the evil power of Satan that he had unknowingly celebrated for so many years before. And likewise it was this one encounter with the evil powers of darkness that made him hungry to learn more about the occult... and it was because of the fact that he knew so very little about the Word of God that he believed the things that he was told about the occult. You see Satan has a talent in making his lies "sound like" the teachings of Christianity. And it was the occultís use of the Holy Bible that made him "feel" comfortable enough about what he was doing to get to the place of becoming a living vampire... and he was doing what he was doing so that he could obtain everlasting life!!!
You see the reason I got on this subject in the first place was innocent enough. It was the week before last that I had pulled up the Internet web page for Chick Publications in an attempt to order more witnessing tools (Chick Tracts). But on the same page I noticed something that caught my eye. It was a counter attack against Jack Chick and his little Christian comic books, and one of the books mentioned was entitled The Death Cookie.
Now for those of you who might not have had the opportunity to read The Death Cookie, it is Mr. Chicks attempt to expose the evil behind the practice of the Eucharist in the Catholic church... and of course it has gotten many Catholics very upset... and it appears that this web site entitled Official "Not A Jack T. Chick" Tract was the results of it. Because the writer who opposed The Death Cookie went on to say, "Donít be fooled. Donít allow yourselves to be deceived or mislead by Jack T. Chickís misrepresentations of Catholicism. The purpose of this page is to "intercept" those who may be looking to Jack T. Chick Tracts to provide them with truthful information on Catholicism."
And when I opened up their counter attack on The Death Cookie this is what I found: "This tract deals very irreverently with the Sacrament of the Eucharist that was instituted by Christ Himself. The basic justification for the Sacrament is found throughout the Bible... In the New Testament starting at John 6:22 and running through John 6:71, we see that Jesus says, not just once but four times, that we must eat His flesh and drink His blood in order to have everlasting life."
Now donít you think it somewhat of a coincidence that one of the tools used in the study and practice of becoming a real life vampire was the Catholicís doctrine of Transubstantiation (that the bread and wine is LITERALLY turned into the Body and Blood of Christ), and that they both used the Scripture as found in the book of John as their source of inspiration?
Well thatís as good a reason as any to take a good look at what "they think" (the Catholics). But in order to understand the full intended message of Jesus, letís start off in the beginning. Reading from John 6 and starting with verse 1, "After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh."
Now itís very important that we understand this real life story just as it happened, and it is believed that this part of Jesusí life happened during the early stages of His three year ministry. You see Jesus was performing great and mighty miracles through the healing power of the Holy Spirit, and anybody and everybody who wanted to be healed were getting healed. So as you can well imagine the people were going wild, and likewise, so was the number of people who were chasing after Him. And it was this great body of water called the sea of Tiberias that sort of acted as a buffer zone between Him and them. He would preach, teach, and heal, and they would go crazy. And to get away from it all, until the crowed simmered down just a tad, Jesus would take to the water.
So as we continue on with this story itís very important to keep it in mind that the Jewish passover feast was just around the corner. Now for the Jew that was one yearly event that none would dare miss, because it signified a great and mighty work of God in their past, and looked to an even greater and mightier work of God in their future. You see the passover originated in Egypt when the Jewish people were being held as slaves. The Jewish people had always eyeballed Egypt as a glorious place to live until they finally had the unconditional choice of living there (that was what they thought they wanted until they found out what it was all about). God finally gave them what they wanted and 400 years later God decided they had experienced enough of it (they had their fill of it so to speak). They wanted it, God gave it to them, and they found out the hard way what the abuse of Satan is all about.
You see Satan had a tight hold on them through his servant Pharaoh, but God was a gonna make him turn loose. Now we arenít going to read the whole entire story today, but for those of you who arenít familiar with it, and for those of you who would like to understand whatís going on, you can read all about it in the book of Exodus, starting with chapter 1. And for those of you who have the Readín Grow Picture Bible, this same story can be found in an easier to read form on page 56. And for those of you who donít have the Readín Grow Picture Bible but would like to have one, then kindly fork over a donation of $15 and it will be yours. But anyway, reading on into the book of Exodus, chapter 11, we find, "And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall utterly thrust you out hence altogether."
You see God was going to get Satan to let go of something that he didnít want to let go of (itís called the death grip). And the way He was going to do it is found in verses 4-7. "And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more. But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel."
You see in order for Pharaoh to be persuaded to let his slaves go, God was going to allow the youngest child and animal of every Egyptian family to be killed by the angel of death. And in order for this death angel to "pass over" the good people during his flight of death through the city, and destroy only the bad, God had His very own well laid plan of salvation for the Jews.
So picking the story up in Exodus 12 we can see what this plan was all about. "And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening."
This was what God said was necessary for the Jewish first born to be "saved" from the angel of death who was just about ready to destroy all of the Egyptian first born. Now pay very close attention because this next part is important. The Israelites were to kill this perfect lamb on a specified day, in the evening, and then, "...they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side post and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire."
By the way, just in case you didnít know, the word purtenance means innards (guts). So the lamb they were to sacrifice for this feast would have his throat cut, he would bleed to death, and then he would be skinned. That was all they did to him before putting him on the grill. Those were Godís orders. And then He goes on to say, "And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat in hast: it is the LORDíS passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever."
What we have just read was the beginning of the celebration of the feast of passover. And because this event was mentioned in John 6:4 itís very important to understand itís meaning before we continue on with the Scripture. So once again, tune in next week, same place and same channel, when we will continue on with the rest of the message on vampires (if the Lordís willing and the creek donít rise). [See The Death Cookie! (3/22/98) for part II of this series.]
And until then, continue to read and study your Bible, donít let Satan trick you into any false religions, and keep the faith!!!
Dad (Bruce Hallman)
The trapezoidal coffin in which Pope John Paul II was buried had deeply occult, vampiric significance. In Satanism, the "Order of the Trapezoid" is a very ancient secret society order, worshipping the Egyptian god Set, who is Satan.
Popeís Vampire Coffin
Former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen, says this type of coffin is built to draw in and preserve evil, dark energy. While in Satanism, Bill had to build one of these trapezoidal coffins. The idea was to attract enough vampiric dark demonic energy, to draw sufficient quanties of energy, and to store that evil energy so that, at a right moment, the dead man can come out of the coffin, a demonic resurrection!
Schnoebelen stated that, while in the coven, he and fellow members used to speculate as to whether the Roman Catholic Church was practicing Vampirism, for they saw much of that system within Catholicism. The fact that Pope John Paul II was buried in a trapezoidal box just reinforces Bill's suspicions.
Dr. Cathy Burns also had the following to say about the Popeís trapezoidal coffin:
"The trapezoid has long been regarded in by occultists as the most satanic of shapes, especially adapted to enhance demonic manifestation. Indeed, the middle order of the Satanic brotherhood is called 'The Order of the Trapezoid'. Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan, refers to an occult principle known as the 'Law of the Trapezoid'. His writings underscore the existence of a magical science of geometric angles and spaces which is very prevalent in the U.N. Meditation Room ... LaVey says architecture can enhave an evil, spiritual atmosphere.
'The bottom line of all this is that the consummate architectural form of the Satan-worshipper is the trapezoid; and he believes that this shape will create a spiritual 'cloud-chamber' of sorts across which he may track the hoofprints of the demons he wishes to invoke. It is believed to be the perfect atmosphere for the manifestation of the unholy and the cursed." [Dr. Cathy Burns, "Billy Graham And His Friends", p. 13-1; quoting former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen, "White Sepulchers: The Hidden Language of the Mormon Temple", p. 46]
