Traditionally in ancient times, the act of Baptism was considered a sacrament of the moon and fertility goddess in which worshippers underwent an immersion into water ritual or would take part in washing rites of spiritual initiation. With the development of Christianity, it was said that John the Baptist used water baptism as the central sacrament which became a Christian rite of admission and adoption into the Church, usually with the use of water poured over the head, used for the purpose of ‘christening’. Baptism is generally considered to be a form of rebirth by water and the spirit, to give birth to a new spiritual creation within the body and to become stamped with the spiritual seal of the Church.
The meaning of Baptism in Baphomet
The Greek translation of Baphomet breaks down into bafe (baptism) and metis (wisdom), referenced in the earliest Masonic source “Craft Symbolism in the Gnostic Mass”, which is understood in the context of a baptism by fire-water. This is similar to the belief that Lucifer is the light bringer in the Luciferian Doctrine, and so Baphomet is also associated in occult ritual to bring to the ritualist astral light and birth the divine wisdom of the spirits to bring one’s personal desires into manifestation. For similar purposes, the Gnostic Mass was later adapted and inverted by Crowley for conjuring sexual black magic via contacting the Baphomet Network, laying the groundwork for Lunar Forces to feed off the black magic grids that are designed to support globally practiced Satanism.
Black Magic Baptism
During Black Magic ritual, the act of possession of the human body is also referred to as a ‘Baptism of Spirit’ which is actually an initiation pact being made with the devil archetype (satanic or luciferian forces), in which the Baphomet forces contain the consciousness stream of these assorted parasitic astral forces and demonic entities. Depending on the type of occult order, black mass or black magic rituals are used for conjuring Baphomet and can include an assortment of depraved activities like human or blood sacrifices, sexual magic or orgies, sodomy and the deliberate infliction of great physical pain and terror on those being initiated or possessed. With Black mass or black magic rituals, everything is done backwards to invert the meaning of the ritual, which evokes the Law of Reversal and attracts the anti-life forces.
The point of spiritual attachment or possession, when contact is made with Baphomet astral forces is referred to by Black Magicians or occultists as the baptism of wisdom, which is considered desirable in this context. The state of mind which incites spiritual possession of the human body is commonly thought to be the desirable result for many occult groups, some believing this state to be a holy spirit possession, while others are purposely desiring to evoke demonic powers. In this context, evoking demonic powers through blood sacrifice is the attempt to create dark spirit servants that can be bound in such ways that they are compelled to do the magicians bidding and serve his will from the astral plane. When these bindings are made, this bond of servitude continues with or without a physical body.
