Joining in the growing trend of fashion that promotes Satan and the occult, R&B singer Ciara, unveiled her full blown promotion of black magic practitioner Aleister Crowley, one of the most influential Satanists of the 20th century, in two videos for her new album. The singer released a preview clip of the video wearing clothing emblazoned with “Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn” – the occult secret society that Crowley once belonged to, on the back and across her boots. The videos are below.
Here is the first clip, for the song “Keep On Lookin”:
And here is the second where she wears the boots and an enormous coat for her song “Super Turnt Up”:
Aleister Crowley, occultist, black magic practitioner and ardent opponent of Christianity, was one of the foremost Satanists of the early 20th century. In addition to advocating drug use, sexual magic, pedophilia, he dubbed himself “the Beast” and “666″ and was once called the “wickedest man in the world.” He is a major influence in Rock ‘n Roll as some of the greatest rock artists of all time from Led Zeppelin, The Beatles to the Doors have paid homage, claimed inspiration or espoused his philosophies in their music and interviews. Beginning and End has chronicled his influence on artists like Ke$ha, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.
In discussing Christianity, Crowley stated:
“That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honor they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy” (Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. xxx).
Crowley also channeled demonic spirits as he attributed his many writings to a spirit called Aiwass, who he said took over his body and wrote the books for him. Crowley was mentored by Satanist Eliphas Levi, who while not as well-known was the original artist of the Baphomet drawing that has become so popular today. Crowley was also greatly influenced by Helena Blavatsky, founder of the occult Theosophical Society and an avowed Luciferian. Her book The Secret Doctrine was a major influence on he Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In it Blavatsky wrote:
“One of the most hidden secrets involves the so-called fall of Angels. Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man. Thus Satan, once he ceases to be viewed in the superstitious spirit of the church, grows into the grandiose image. It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God. Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity.“ (The Secret Doctrine, Volume II, Pages 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533).
The worship of Satan in this doctrine is clear. Crowley referred to himself as Baphomet and even used it as a signature. His entire agenda was based on rebellion against the God of the Bible and encouraging the world to pursue sin and unwittingly pledge their allegiance to Satan. His main motto: “Do as thou wilt, shall be the whole of the law” was an encouragement to pursue every sin one desired. He took that phrase from The Hellfire Club, an 18th century secret society in London that was known for holding orgies, pagan rituals and satanic worship (Benjamin Franklin was among its many powerful members). Their motto was “Fait ce que vouldras” or “do what thou wilt.”
In Scripture all dabbling in the occult is grave sin:
There 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. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. – Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. – Leviticus 19:31.
And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. – Leviticus 20:6.
Whether it is contacting spirits, casting spells or using charms, any type of magic or occult activity is sin. All magical practices involve invoking demonic spirits to achieve some task or attain power. And The Lord, in His wisdom, forbids all people from having contact with spirits that are linked to Satan. In the Old Testament Mosaic law, the punishment for practicing witchcraft was death. This is how serious this sin is in the eyes of God. But now pop culture is leading the charge to have an occult revival worldwide and bring the world back to Satan’s influence.
Making The Occult Cool
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (or, more commonly, the Golden Dawn) was a magical order active in Great Britain during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which practiced theurgy and spiritual development. It has been one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultists. Concepts of magic and ritual at the center of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca and Thelema, were inspired by the Golden Dawn. (source).
“Whether we speak of ‘Theosophy’, or The Golden Dawn, or The Ordera Templi Orientalis (O.T.O.)… or any other of the truly enormous number of tiny groups all enraptured by the same glamour, what it is with which we are truly dealing is ‘Popular Occultism’ (source).
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: – 1 Peter 5:8.
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded by three Freemasons who were also members of the Rosicrucian secret society. It focused on training its initiates in the practice of Kabbalah, alchemy, tarot and other occult techniques. Crowley, a 33rd degree Freemason was initiated into the Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn in 1898 and only remained in the group until 1900, but his prominence in pop culture gave the group much fame. Crowley soon formed his own occult society, the Ordo Templi Orientis, or O.T.O. to continue his practice of witchcraft well into the 20th century. He died in 1947 a strung out, sickly heroin addict.
Crowley’s entire life was devoted to rebellion against God, perversion and corruption. And yet, this is who Ciara chooses to promote in her video. On her coat there are also the terms “equilibrium”, “mercy” and “temperance” all phrases used in the practice of occult magic in the Hermetic order and the name of the Greek goddess Sophrosyne. All this relates to the occult desire to achieve godhood and immortality. And this all goes back to the first lie given to humanity by Satan in the Garden of Eden:
Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. – Genesis 3:1-5.
Satan was able to lure the first 2 people on Earth into sin by twisting God’s clear commands to make them doubt The Lord. And he enticed Eve with the offer of godhood and immortality – precisely what he has continued to use to deceive those in the occult for centuries. The Devil desires nothing more than for people to no longer care about their sin or concern for the judgment of God. Because that will inevitably bring them closer to his influence and to hell. And pop culture today has led the way in this as the music has promoted sexual immorality, drug use and selling, violence, sexism, racism and all manner of rebellion. And as society has tried to remove God from public life, silence Bible-believing Christians and critique the Bible, the ignorance of Scripture has allowed popular singers and rappers to promote the occult and Satan without even being questioned.
Why Are Secret Societies Revealing Their Secrets?
The gradual evolution of individual’s thought processes to where his/her mind is naturally thinking in tune with the desired thought pattern consistent with the New World Order. The objective is to so thoroughly condition people that they will not realize that their thinking is being framed by any outside agency or people; rather, they will think that their thoughts are spontaneous. This is known as the “Evolution Of Human Thought”. (The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy, Alice Bailey, p. 588)
Alice Bailey, an Illuminati New Age Movement founder and disciple of Helena Blavatsky, wrote a book called The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy which laid out the plan to usher in the New World Order in which the New Age and occult movement was the dominant religion of the world. Channeling a demonic spirit to write her book, Bailey said that in order for the Hierarchy – the fallen angelic and demonic beings who commune with magic practitioners, to truly return to the world openly and usher in the New World Order, there needed to be a “paradigm shift” in society, where the masses abandoned Christianity and Biblical principles in favor of New Age mysticism. All to help invoke the “New Age Christ” – a false messiah-figure who would lead all people to world peace, one religion, one unified world government and immortality.
To achieve this, the many secret symbols, rituals and practices of the occult had to be gradually revealed to the public over time. In Bailey’s view, all of the masses had to learn the basics of the occult mysteries and she predicted that in the century after her death, this “externalisation” would take place (which is clearly seen today in entertainment as many have been drawn into occult practices like wicca, psychic readings, tarot and other forms of magic after watching movies, television or some form of entertainment inspired them). Bailey’s plan required that the public never realize they are being conditioned to serve Satan’s kingdom. All setting the stage for the “New Age Christ” to emerge. A goal that ties in with the Golden Dawn name itself. The Bible explains what the name is alluding to:
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” (Isaiah 14:12).
Satan was once known as “the son of the morning” a reference to the brightness of a star at the dawn of day. And the Golden Dawn doctrine is a reference to trying to bring man to that god-like level (and in the Order of The Golden Dawn, “Son Of The Morning” is an official title one can achieve after rising in the ranks – so again we see that the occult is taking God’s Word and twisting it to deceive).
Like her mentor Blavatsky, Alice Bailey was deceived by the lie of Satan. Discussing the purpose of the New Age movement she wrote:
The New Age teaches that each human has a potential godhead dwelling within them. All that is necessary for anyone to fulfill this potential is to “expand their consciousness” level properly. But, the bottom line message is: “You Are All Gods”. (Alice Bailey, Externalisation Of The Hierarchy, p. 663). [Emphasis added].
Not only does Bailey quote Satan almost verbatim from Scripture, she was also the founder of the Lucifer Trust Publishing company (which later changed its name to the less-blatant Lucis Trust). Her allegiance to Satan was clear and she was devoted her life to pushing her agenda through a slow process of bringing the occult mysteries to the public. And this is precisely what is taking place today as millions of people are being indoctrinated into the occult in small steps as more and more of entertainment promotes it. Whether it is Harry Potter, Twilight, the hundreds of teen novels about witches, wizards, fallen angels and Nephilim, or more “adult” shows like True Blood, the occult and magic have become big business in Hollywood.

In making the occult “cool”, millions are fooled into embracing satanic rebellion in the name of supporting their favorite stars and self-expression. All the while secretly being prepared for the real leader of the Illuminati New World Order – the Antichrist.
The Antichrist is the prophesied false Messiah who will rule the world for 3 ½ years before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to Earth. And rather than take over the world by force, he will be a beloved figure who the unsaved world will embrace and want in power. He will perform miracles and appear to be a god-like being to the world. And he will require worship as one:
And they [the world] worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world…and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. – Revelation 13:4-8, 15.
Rather than making a “utopia” for all people to live in, the Antichrist will require worship of him under penalty of death. His Mark of the Beast system will track the movement and buying and selling of every person on the planet (as the Mark must be taken under penalty of death). He will appear to be an unstoppable ruler with supernatural ability. But he will be defeated quickly at the return of Jesus Christ:
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean…
And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast [Antichrist] was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. – Revelation 19:11-14, 19-21.
Jesus Christ, The Son of God and God in the flesh, will defeat the Antichrist and cast him into the Lake of Fire upon His arrival to Earth at the Second Coming. And the entire Illuminati New World Order will be destroyed in a moment. This is the end for those who have been deceived into rejecting Christ and pursuing demonic magic. Satan wants all people to either worship him or burn in hell. And will use any means to deceive people away from the Gospel. Even if you are not practicing witchcraft or magic, just being in sin with no repentance or faith in Jesus Christ will lead you to the same damnation. The Bible says that “rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” So embracing the sexually immoral, money-loving, rebellious ideas of pop culture keeps God’s wrath hanging over you. The good news that Jesus Christ in His First Coming, came to Earth to save people from the punishment of God.
The sins all people have committed have given a death sentence to all people. Scripture says, “the wages of sin is death.” All people are guilty before God. But Jesus Christ came to Earth, born in human flesh, to live a perfect life and offer Himself as a sacrifice to take the punishment for all the sins committed by all people in the world. And by confessing one’s sins to God and believing in Jesus’ death on the cross for the forgiveness of sins, a person can be forgiven and receive eternal life, living in God’s Kingdom forever. A person can truly be immortal – but it comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
Believe In Jesus Christ
“but [God] is longsuffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9.
Satan’s fate has been sealed and prophesied in the Bible. Knowing his time is almost up, he is working to try and bring as many humans down with him. And pop culture has been a major weapon to luring people away from the Gospel and eternal life and into rebellion. The music, movie and television industry has embraced Satan’s agenda, as more and more entertainment tries to indoctrinate society into the occult, while the many actors and singers are unwittingly and many times voluntarily signing up to Satan’s bidding in exchange for wealth and fame. There is a war taking place – and the souls of humanity are the prize. Do not be deceived.
If you are a born again Christian, pray for Ciara’s repentance from her clear allegiance to the forces working to promote the occult to the world and for her efforts to fail. And reject music and entertainment that is indoctrinating the world into the occult and sinful rebellion. And if you are not a Christian ask yourself why so many entertainers promote the occult and wear satanic imagery on their clothing? Have you taken the time to consider the fate of your soul? Or are you just living for today, dancing to the music and ignoring the sins you have committed? Take the time to read the gospel and cry out to God to have your sins forgiven. Your eternal life is at stake.
