Title:  HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE -- BOOK REVIEW

Subtitle: This book chronicles Harry's Fourth Year at Hogwart's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, a year in which Harry finds himself under the most severe attack yet by evil Lord Voldemort.  The Witchcraft portrayed here is once again very accurate and disturbing.

BRIEF SYNOPSIS

This story opens in the now-derelict home of Tom Riddle, the father of evil Lord Voldemort, and the one whom Voldemort murdered in cold blood. In the study of this old house, in front of a roaring fireplace, a servant of Lord Voldemort waits on his master, who is inhibited in his ability to function in this world of reality because he has lost his regular physical body; therefore, he can function only in a weak, helpless, disgusting undead body, a disembodied spirit, really. How did Voldemort lose his physical body, you might ask? In book one, Sorcerer's Stone , Voldemort used the strongest Black Magick killing curse to murder Harry's father and mother, and to attempt to kill baby Harry. However, just as she was dying, Harry's mother was able to cast a very ancient, obscure protective spell over Harry, saving Harry's life. Suddenly, the killing curse that had just killed Harry's parents did not kill him, causing the curse to rebound upon Voldemort. Author Rowling understands true Witchcraft, so she correctly depicted the killing curse as having rebounded back against the one who had given it -- Lord Voldemort. Had Voldemort not specifically cast a spell beforehand that gave him eternal life, he would have been killed outright. However, he was weakened to such a degree that he lost his body, existing only as a disembodied spirit .As the scene opens, Lord Voldemort is speaking to Wormtail, the one servant who had returned to assist his master. These two wizards are discussing how they are going to use an upcoming special opportunity to get access to Harry Potter so they can kill him. This special opportunity was later identified as the Triwizard Championship Tournament, a special tournament in which a champion from each of the other two occult schools can compete in a specially devised battle of witches and wizards.

Lord Voldemort had devised a plan in which he would be able to physically attack Harry through this tournament and kill him. As he was discussing this plan with Wormtail, and with a 12-foot snake with whom Voldemort can communicate, they suddenly became aware that the old gardener, a Muggle, had been listening to their conversation. They invite him into the room and kill him with a Killing Curse. Suddenly, hundreds of miles away, Harry Potter is abruptly awakened from a very sound sleep when his lightening bolt between his eyes suddenly begins to hurt like fire. As Harry awoke, he thought of the dream-like vision he had seen in his mind just before the pain from the scar awoke him. He relived the scene of Lord Voldemort, his servant Wormtail, the 12-foot snake, the cold-blooded murder of the old gardener, and of Voldmert's plan to kill him!

In Chapter Two, entitled "The Scar", we learn that the official name for the lightening bolt permanently etched into Harry's forehead, right between his eyes, is a "curse scar" [p. 21]. The major concern we have with Harry Potter is that it encourages youngsters to want to copy Harry to have a scar painted between their eyes, just as we saw during the hyped buildup preceding the release of this fourth book. Some day, a spiritual superman is going to arise, and will soon demand that these kids take the ultimate Curse Mark, his Mark of the Beast , located right where Harry's curse scar is.

Lord Voldemort had successfully placed his own man as professor at Hogwarts, and this professor ensured that Harry would win the championship so he would be able to touch the trophy. As Harry was nearing the end of the third and final test, he found himself neck-and-neck with a another student in the competition, Cedric Diggory. Harry tells Cedric that, if they both touch the trophy at the same instant, they would be co-champions. As they simultaneously touch the trophy, both are instantly transported out of the scene at Hogwarts and into a graveyard, where both Wormtail and his master, Lord Voldemort, are awaiting. Voldemort intends to use Harry's blood in a special spell that will give him his physical body back, and then he will kill Harry with a more powerful Killing Curse.When Voldemort sees Cedric accompanying Harry, he kills Cedric instantly. 

After Wormtail had prepared the boiling cauldron, he told his master the time had arrived to put him into the cauldron to begin the spell to give him his normal human body again. Later in this article, we give the entire description of Voldemort's disembodied spirit, the ritual spell, and the new, un-human body that Voldemort received as the result of the spell. You will be shocked!

Truly, this disgusting supernatural satanic spell to resurrect the body of the evil genius, Lord Voldemort, captures the essence of Harry Potter. The themes of the books are constant terror, horror, and panic amongst the students. I could find no redeeming virtue in any of the books. Surely, no Christian parent should ever allow their child to put this bold, blatant Satanism in their minds, remembering the command given by the Apostle Paul:  "... brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." [Philippians 4:8]

Harry Potter books fail this test miserably.  Therefore, any Christian ministry, or parent, who understands the need to obey Scripture, will act to prevent the child or children under their care from reading any of these books.  Most children who thoroughly ingest this material, and falling in love with the characters, will probably not have the kind of love for Jesus Christ they should have.  On these people, Paul's writings of 1 Cor 16:22 will surely fall.

Definition of Reality and Fantasy in the World of a Satanist

                 1. Both worlds are real, existing side by side in parallel . Fantasy is the world to which a Satanist seeks constant access, a world filled with exciting adventures with magic awaiting them at every step. A Satanist will consider his fantasy world to be more exciting, more fulfilling, than his real world. This is why Harry says to Dobby after Dobby tells him not to return to school: "But I've got to go back It's all that's keeping me going. You don't know what it's like here. I don't belong here. I belong in your world -- at Hogwarts." [p. 16]

                  2.  Definition of 'Supernatural' -- "Of or pertaining to existing outside the natural world; especially not attributable to natural forces." [Tormonts Illustrated Encyclopedic Dictionary] Therefore, all activities in the occult Fantasy World are 'supernatural'.  Thus, Chuck Colson's firm assurance to Christian parents that Harry Potter books are all right because "no contact is made with the supernatural" world is shown to be patently and boldly false!

                    3.  Hogwarts School Exists In Fantasy World -- ALL of the activities at Hogwarts School occurred in the Fantasy -- Supernatural -- realm!  The portal by which Harry and other students stepped into to get into the Fantasy Dimension is described below.

I.  Contact With The Supernatural World While In Muggle Reality   

     A.  Gnomes -- the Weasley's garden was infested with playful gnomes. The dictionary describes gnomes as "a fabled race of dwarflike creatures often portrayed as wizened old men, who live underground and guard treasure hordes". [Page 60]

     B. The Portal by which Harry and his friends escape from Muggle reality and board the Hogwart's train remained the same as in other books.  "Harry was used to getting onto platform nine and three-quarters by now.  It was a simple matter of walking straight through the apparently solid barrier dividing platforms nine and ten.  The only tricky part was doing this in an unobtrusive way, so as to avoid attracting Muggle attention.  They did this in groups today; Harry, Ron, and Hermione ... went first; they leaned casually against the barrier, chatting unconcernedly, and slid sideways through it, and as they did so, platform nine and three-quarters materialized in front of them." [Page 163]

The fact is, our universe is comprised of many more than just the four known dimensions, as science is beginning to discover.  The four known dimensions of our world are:  Height, Depth, Length, and Time.  The entire supernatural world exists on some other dimension that we cannot see, and which God does not want us to experience.  However, people involved in the occult are most desperate to experience the dimension of the occult, usually through Astral Projection

The occultist believes that the extra dimension in which the supernatural world exists is more exciting, and more colorful, and more to be desired, than this world.  We see this belief clearly in the occult movie, "The Wizard of Oz".  When Dorothy is in her normal existence, the movie is black and white, but when she is in the extra dimension, the movie is brilliant color.

II.  Contact With Supernatural Spirits While At Hogwart's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft

     A.  Peeves the Poltergeist -- ".. a little man in a bell-covered hat and orange bow tie, his wide, malicious face contorted with concentration as he took aim again." [Page 172] The dictionary defines a poltergeists as "a noisy mischievous spirit that manifests itself by slamming doors, moving objects, and the like."

      B.  Nearly Headless Nick, the Gryffindor House resident ghost.  We met this nearly decapitated ghost in the earlier books, but I find it very disgusting to treat demon possession of a student's dormitory as something routine and normal.  And do not be deceived; this apparition is a demon, since the spirit of one deceased goes immediately to the "God Who gave it". [Ecclesiastes 12:7]

      C.  Bloody Baron , the Slytherin ghost, a "gaunt and silent specter covered in silver bloodstains". [Page 181].  Since the Slytherin fraternity house was the one most given over to Black Magick Witchcraft, it is only appropriate in the storyline to give its demonic apparition the most menacing and bloody.

      D.   Moaning Myrtle -- the spirit of a girl student murdered at Hogwart's School quite a number of years before Harry attended. She now demonically possesses the girl's toilets on the second floor, preventing the girls from using one or more of the stalls.  [Page 395]

      E.  Goblins -- "Harry saw him glance into the mirror over the bar at the goblins, who were all watching him and Harry in silence through their dark, slanting eyes." [Page 446] The dictionary defines a goblin as "a grotesque, elfin creature of folklore, thought to work mischief". 

      F.  Grindylow, a Water Demon -- During one of the obstacles during the Triwizard Tournament, Harry suddenly felt his leg seized by powerful fingers.  Looking down, he saw he had been attacked by a water demon, known in the book as a grindylow.  [Page 495]

Demons are everywhere in these books.

III. Colors Used In Story

     A.  Green-- this color is a favorite of Satan, and is repeatedly used as a symbol of his power and glory

            1Green Light -- When Lord Voldemort killed the old Muggle gardener, Frank, in the first chapter, he did so with a Killing Curse, but when Frank fell to the floor, writhing in his death throes, a green light flashed out of Voldemort's wand to accomplish the killing. [Page 15]

            2.  Emerald Green-- the Weasley's used a method of instant apparition in which they would cast a spell and then step bodily into a fire.  When they disappeared, a cloud of emerald green would erupt out of the fire [Page 50].  Since green is the favorite color of Satan, is this a symbol that their power to apparate like this is powered by Satan?  I think so, especially since they had to step into a fire to make it work.

           3.  The Dark Mark -- When Lord Voldemort perfected his plan to kidnap and destroy Harry through the Triwizard Tournament, he decided to make his presence known at the Quidditch World Cup, which immediately preceded the start of the Tournament.  Rowling describes this evil Dark Mark thusly:

"... without warning, the silence was rent by a voice unlike any they had heard in the wood; and it uttered, not a panicked shout but what sounded like a spell.  'MORSMORDRE!'  And something vast, green, and glittering erupted from the patch of darkness Harry's eyes had been struggling to penetrate; it flew up over the treetops and into the sky ... For a split second, Harry thought it was another leprechaun formation. Then, he realized that it was a colossal skull, comprised of what looked like emerald stars, with a serpent protruding from his mouth like a tongue.  As they watched, it rose higher and higher, blazing in a haze of greenish smoke, etched against the black sky like a new constellation.  Suddenly, the wood all around them erupted with screams." [Page 128-129]

This Satanic symbol was shaped like a colossal skull, with a serpent protruding from the mouth of the skull and the entire symbol was "vast and green ".  The reaction it prompted from the witches and wizards in the woods was a terrifying scream.

Later, this Dark Mark is identified as a "wizard's sign" [Page 132].  And, even later, it was identified as having come from Lord Voldemort [Page 141].  Then, the purpose of the Dark Mark was further identified when Harry and Ron learned that Voldemort and his followers, called Death Eaters, sent this Mark up into the air whenever they had just killed someone [Page 142]

          4.  Deep Green -- the color of Dumbledore's "magnificent" robe.  Dumbledore is the headmaster at Hogwart's School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the one who is the master of Defense Against The Dark Arts, and the one whose mere presence ensures the magical safety of the school.  I guess it is only appropriate that he should have the deepest hue of Satan's favorite color [Page 175]

          5.  Blinding Green Light flashed across the class just as the Professor of Defense Against The Dark Arts raised his wand to utter the correct curse to enact the Aveda Kedavra Killing Curse. Satan's color always seems to accompany murder in the Harry Potter books!

     B.  Scarlet -- the Hogwart's Express train that took students to the school was a "gleaming scarlet steam engine".  Scarlet is a bright red, and a popular color with people of the occult.  Red was the color adopted by the Communists as their official government color.  The major reason red is so popular is because Satanism does require human or animal sacrifice, the spilling of blood.  Even if a particular coven is not practicing such sacrifice, another coven is practicing it for them.

      C.  Deep Blood Red -- the robes of the Durmstrang students were revealed to be wearing robes of a deep bloodred." [Page 251]  In Book #1, The Sorcerer's Stone , the Black Magick wizard, evil Lord Voldemort, was drinking the blood of the unicorn in order to get strength to keep from dying.  Blood is a favorite subject to a Satanist, as is its color, Red.  Communism chose a bloodred color for this very purpose.  As Christian pastor and author, Richard Wurmbrand, states in his book, Marx & Satan , "Communism is collective demon-possession." [Page 108]  He then concluded the subject by saying, "When Communists came to power, unprecedented slaughters followed, which eclipse even Hitler's Holocaust." [Page 131]

And, their color was Blood Red .

     C.  Maroon -- Ron's dress robes are maroon.  This purplish color is the color of royalty.

IV.  Magic Spells, Potions, and Tricks

      A.  Engorgement Charm-- is the first charm mentioned.  The Weasley brothers used this charm on the Muggle kid, Dudley, as a practical joke.  Dudley's tongue swelled up enormously immediately after he began to suck on a coffee flavored toffee.  Dudley's tongue turned purple and slimy, and grew to a full foot long. [Page 49]

      B.  Muggle Repelling Charms -- [Page 95] -- "Every time Muggles have got anywhere near here [the Quidditch Cup playing field], they've suddenly remembered urgent appointments and had to dash away ..." Muggles are those people who do not practice the Magic Arts, either White or Black.  Wizards work very hard to keep them from ever realizing that the parallel world of Witchcraft ever exists. 

      C.  Memory Modification Charm [Page 145] --  A form of Mind Control-- a witch would cast this charm over the mind of any Muggle if they had seen or heard anything they were not supposed to hear or see.  This type of Mind Control was deemed more humane than killing the Muggle.  The entire purpose was to keep the existence of the entire world of Witchcraft from the general Muggle population.

" 'Durmstrang's got to be about the same size as Hogwarts -- how are you going to hide a great a great big castle?' [Ron] But Hogwarts is hidden, said Hermione in surprise. 'Everyone knows that, well everyone who's read Hogwarts, A History , anyway'. ... Ron replied. 'So go on, how d'you hide a place like Hogwarts?'  'It's bewitched', said Hermione.  'If a Muggle looks at it, all they see is a moldering old ruin with a sign over the entrance saying DANGER, DO NOT ENTER, UNSAFE'."

" 'So, Durmstrang'll just look like a ruin to an outsider too?' 'Maybe', said Hermione, shrugging, 'or it might have Muggle repelling charms on it, like the World Cup stadium. And to keep foreign wizards from finding it, they'll have made it Unplottable ... you can enchant a building so it's impossible to plot on a map ...' "

      D.  Imperius Curse

" 'Gave the Ministry [of Magic] a lot of trouble at one time, the Imperius Curse' ... [Professor] Moody reached into the jar, caught one of the spiders, and held it in the palm of his hand so that they could all see it. He then pointed his wand at it and muttered, 'Imperio!'  The spider leapt from Moody's hand on a fine thread of silk and began to swing backward and forward as though on a trapeze. It stretched out its legs rigidly, then did a back flip, breaking the thread and landing on the desk, where it began to cartwheel in circles. Moody jerked his wand, and the spider rose onto two of its hind legs and went into what was unmistakably a tap dance."

"Everyone was laughing -- everyone except Moody.  'Think it's funny, do you?' he growled.  'You'd like it, would you, if I did it to you?' The laughter died away almost instantly." [[Page 212-213]

      E.  Cruciatus Curse

"... pointing his wand at the spider [Professor Moody] said, 'Engorio'!  the spider swelled.  It was now larger than a tarantula ... Moody raised his wand again, pointed it at the spider, and muttered, 'Crucio!' At once, the spider's legs bent in upon his body; it rolled over and began to twitch horribly, rocking from side to side. No sound came from it, but Harry was sure that if it could have given voice, it would have been screaming.  Moody did not remove his wand, and the spider started to shudder and jerk more violently ... Moody raised his wand.  The spider's legs relaxed, but it continued to twitch. 'Reducio!', Moody muttered and the spider shrank back to its proper size.  'Pain', said Moody softly. 'You don't need thumbscrews or knives to torture someone if you can perform the Cruciatus Curse'." [Page 214-215]

Christian parent, do you want your child to learn how to torture someone, or even think about doing so? And the name of this curse that tortures, "Crucio'; I wonder if it is derived from the word, 'Crucify'?  If it is, then the name is a direct slam against Christianity.

      F. Avada Kedavra Killing Curse

"He [Moody] put his hand into the glass jar, and almost as though it knew what was coming, the third spider scuttled frantically around the bottom of the jar, trying to evade Moody's fingers, but he trapped it, and placed it upon the desktop ... Moody raised his wand, and Harry felt a sudden thrill of foreboding. 'Avada Kedavra!', Moody roared. There was a flash of blinding green light , and a rushing sound, as though a vast, invisible something was soaring through the air -- instantaneously the spider rolled over onto its back, unmarked but unmistakably dead.  Several of the students stifled cries ... Moody swept the dead spider off the desk onto the floor." [Emphasis added]

" 'Not nice', he said calmly.  'Not pleasant.  And there's no countercurse.  There's no blocking it ... Aveda Kedavra's a curse that needs a powerful bit of magic behind it ... Now, if there's no countercurse, why am I showing it to you?  Because you've got to know!  You've got to appreciate what the worst is.  You don't want to find yourself in a situation where you're facing it.  CONSTANT VIGILANCE!', he roared, and the whole class jumped again."

I found it totally repugnant that the hero of the storyline -- Harry Potter -- would find an impending death giving him a "sudden thrill of foreboding".  Truly, you do not want your child to develop this kind of attitude toward death, do you?

Finally, note that, when the death blow was administered to the spider, Satan's favorite color, Green , flashed brilliantly outward from the wand, accompanied by a rushing sound.  Satan clearly was the deliverer of this death blow.

       G. Summoning Charms -- how to force someone to come to you. [Page 234]

       F.  Confundus Charm -- designed to confuse the mind [Page 281]

       G.  Stunning Spells  -- " 'Stupefy!', they shouted in unison, and the Stunning Spells shot into the darkness like fiery rockets, bursting in showers of stars on the dragon's scaly hides ..." [Page 326] The dragons were stunned and were then captured safely. 

       H.  Extinguishing Spells -- spells designed to extinguish fires instantly. [Page 328]

Have you noticed that virtually every facet of life for a witch and a wizard is governed by some kind of spell or potion?  A witch or wizard is as dependent upon Satan for their daily life as the Christian is dependent upon Jesus Christ!

      I.  Transforming Spells -- designed to transform people and animals into other living beings.  On page 385, we saw a Cross-Species Switch transformation mentioned. Sirius was depicted as being able to turn into a big black dog, while reporter Rita Skeeter, was able to turn into a beetle.

VPotions

      1.  Belladonna-- Harry was running short of this ingredient for making his potion.  The dictionary defines belladonna as a "poisonous Eurasian plant, having purplish-red bell-shaped flowers, and small black poisonous berries", also called, "Deadly Nightshade".  Witches do use belladonna in several of their rituals and spells.

      2. Truth Potion -- designed to make a person tell the truth, and especially to reveal hidden secrets. [Page 517].  I find it highly interesting that a Satanist needs a Truth Potion to make them tell the truth, but that comes with the territory of serving Satan, the chief of all liars.

VIRowling consistently depicts Satanism correctly

      A.  Remote Viewing -- [Page 16-19; 576]

Once again, I am amazed at the intimate knowledge of author Rowling. She really and truly knows her Witchcraft. A powerful Witch or Wizard can, indeed, view an event hundreds, or thousands, of miles away if they have called into themselves the demonic entity which can give them this unique kind of Divination. This capability is called Remote Viewing. The official explanation is that certain persons in the occult are endowed with special "psychic powers" that enable them to see an event as it is occurring many hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away. A further refinement of this technique enables such a person to see events that will be happening in a specified future time, viewing it as though it were happening right now, in real time.In reality, Remote Viewing is made possible because demons make it work; they cause a vision to occur in the viewer's head that is identical to what really is happening. I find it highly sobering to realize that, unless God intervenes, demonic activity could make it possible for a human being involved in the occult to see what is happening in your home or mine. This activity is the occult counterfeit to God's Omniscience, His All-Knowing and All-Seeing capability.

     B.  Depiction of Snakes as having great wisdom and understanding -- Lord Valdemort seeks the advice and counsel of a very special 12-foot snake [Nagini] all throughout the book, as he perfects his plot to kill Harry Potter.  [Page 12-15] Satanists have always revered snakes, from the dawn of history.  They revere the snake because of the account in the Garden of Eden, when Satan spoke through the snake to entice Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit.  Satanists believe the snake did Adam and Eve a huge favor by opening their spiritual eyes to know the difference between Good and Evil, thus setting in motion the process by which a person can come to realize the "godhood" indwelling each one  of us.  In fact, Satanists believe that it was only after Eve partook of the fruit that she and Adam began to realize the true delights in sex; further, Adam then took another wife, Lilith, who really "taught him the ropes".  Satanists today depict Lilith as a demon, which she truly is.

Both Harry Potter and his "evil" enemy, Lord Voldemort, spoke to snakes, an ability called Parseltongue in Rowling's books.  Such an ability was depicted as an evil Dark Art, or part of Black Magick Witchcraft [Page 612]

      C.  Astral Projection -- Harry and other students and witches were constantly "apparating", defined correctly as "disappearing from one place and reappearing almost instantly in another" [Page 66].  Real witches accomplish this in the spirit, as their spirit will leave their body and travel instantly to another place.

Rowling introduces a twist to this type of travel, which she calls a Portkey [Page 70-71].  Portkeys are "objects that are used to transport wizards from one spot to another at a prearranged time ...they can be anything ... unobtrusive things .... so Muggles don't go picking them up and playing with them ... stuff they'll just think is litter."  Harry records the experience of his first travel with a Portkey.

"It happened immediately:  Harry felt as though a hook just behind his navel had been suddenly jerked irresistibly forward.  His feet left the ground; he could feel Ron and Hermione on either side of him, their shoulders banging into his; they were all speeding forward in a howl of wind and swirling color; his forefinger was stuck to the boot [Portkey] as though it was pulling him magnetically onward and then -- His feet slammed into the ground; Ron staggered into him and he fell over; the Portkey hit the ground near his head with a heavy thud." [Page 73-74]

     D.  Demon Possession -- Harry recounted for Ron the time in the previous year when Professor Trelawney was demonically possessed.  During the incident where Harry was present, the voice not hers, coming seemingly from deep within her, vowed, "The Dark Lord will rise again, greater and more terrible than ever before ..." [Page 150] 

Lord Voldemort described how he was able to place his man in Hogwart's School.  Listen to his discussion as to how he possessed that man, remembering that Voldemort now is disembodied spirit.  "Then, four years ago ... a wizard, young, foolish, and gullible -- wandered across my path ... he was a teacher at Dumbledore's school ... he was easy to bend to my will ... after a while, I took possession of his body, to supervise him closely as he carried out my orders." [Page 654]

Then, Voldemort discusses how he first possessed the witch Bertha, and then killed her.  "... the means I used to break the Memory Charm upon her were powerful, and when I had extracted all useful information from her, her mind and body were both damaged beyond repair.  She had now served her purpose. I could not possess her.  I disposed of her." [Page 655]

Do you really want your child reading books in which people are demon possessed?  Is this the purity we are to have in our daily walk with the Lord?  I think not!

      E.  Generational Witchcraft -- this is witchcraft practiced in successive generations on down.  In the real world, some of the best examples of Generational Witchcraft are the families -- Rothschild, Rockefeller, Taft, Wadsworth, Payne, Pillsbury, Sloane, Weyerhaeuser, Harriman, Lord, Bundy, Phelps, Whitney, Perkins, Stimson, Bush, Chafee. [Antony C. Sutton, America's Secret Establishment:  An Introduction To The Order of Skull & Bones , p. 19-29]

coffin      F.  Goblet of Fire -- for which this story is named.  The Goblet of Fire was the demonic entity which chose the Champion of each school for the Triwizard Tournament.  The demon was inside a "great wooden chest encrusted with jewels".  When the Goblet of Fire was used, it arose out of an old casket. [Page 253-255]  I find it highly interesting that the Satanic/Freemason symbol of the casket is used in the story. 

During the Initiation ceremony, a candidate -- naked -- is placed into a coffin, symbolic of his death to self, to his old life, and most importantly, to his old values and attitudes.  When the proper ritual is said, the Master reaches into the coffin to clasp the hand of the candidate, to "raise him to newness of life".  The candidate suddenly feels an exaltation that is deeply spiritual; he is said to have been "Born Again".  This is the reason former President George Bush could claim being Born Again, when he clearly was Skull & Bones, one of the blackest of the black Satanic secret societies.

I find it extremely interesting that Rowling retained the role of the coffin in this storyline.

      G.  Halloween -- is the Satanist's favorite holiday.  "The decorations in the Great Hall had changed this morning.  As it was Halloween, a cloud of live bats was fluttering around the enchanted ceiling, while hundreds of carved pumpkins leered from every corner." [Page 260]  Do not be deceived; Halloween (All Hallows Eve) is Satan's most important celebration, as it is his celebration of the dead.  "Originally, All Hallow's Eve was one of the great fire festivals of Britain at the time when the spirits of the dead, the demons, the witches, and sorcerers were unusually active and propitious ... The youth of the villages carried on with much merry-making and sensual [sexual] revelry, but the older people took great care to safeguard their homes from the evil spirits, witches, and demons who had exceptional power that night." [Anton LaVey, The Satanic Bible , p. 97-98]

Do not be deceived; no Christian should have anything to do with Halloween, as it is clearly Satan's most important holiday.  It is one of the eight (8) Holy Sabbats of the year, and the most important time for human sacrifice.  Rowling has publicly stated that Halloween is her favorite time of the year, another strong indication of her Satanism. 

      H.  Dragons  -- are consistently depicted in all four Potter books.  Dragon blood is said to contain enormous magical properties, their hides are used for gloves, their livers are used in potions, and now dragons in Goblet of Fire are one of the obstacles the Champions of each school are to face during the Triwizard Tournament.

People who know their Bibles know what the symbolism of the Dragon is.  "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." [Revelation 12:9]

Yep, Rowling depicts her Satanism correctly!

      I.  Scarab Beetles  -- [Page 515] were worshipped by the ancient Egyptians [you know, the people God brought into Judgment when he delivered Moses and the people of Israel in Exodus].  Therefore, Satanists also revere this beetle. Revered as "sacred to the Egyptians; used in Egypt as a talisman and a symbol of the soul." [Tormont Webster's Illustrated Dictionary ].

      J.  Divination -- " 'My dear, you were undoubtedly stimulated by the extraordinary clairvoyant vibrations of my room!', said Professor Trelawney.  'And if you leave now, you may lose the opportunity to see further than you have ever ---' " [Page 578]  God ordered death by execution for clairvoyants.

      K.  Disembodied Spirit -- Evil Lord Voldemort is a disembodied spirit who is looking for a body!  [Page 601]    The fact is, all demons are looking for a body in which to inhabit.  Obviously, when a person  is a disembodied spirit, he has died; therefore, Lord Voldemort is really now a demon looking for a body in which to inhabit.  Many horror shows have been created in which a demonic spirit, or the spirit of a person who has died, is now roaming the earth looking for a body in which to inhabit.

      L.  Shape-Shifter -- [Page 623] One of the most common type of shape-shifting in popular media is a werewolf.  Dictionary Definition of a werewolf:  "... a person transformed into a wolf or capable of assuming the form of a wolf."  This transformation is not unique in Satanism, but it is done only at the highest levels of Witchcraft.  Severe demonic possession is required.  This procedure is also called "Shape-shifting ", and is done with demons that assume other forms than a wolf.  If you have been paying attention, you have noticed several TV shows and movies that have depicted Shape-shifting:  Roswell TV show, Werewolf with Jack Nicholson, American Werewolf in London, American Werewolf in Paris, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox. 

We are definitely being conditioned to accept beings that shape-shift, and Christians had better get prepared.  I have been told by a former Illuminist that the people who will be manning the prisons and execution chambers of dissidents during the Tribulation Period will be shape-shifters that change from human to Reptilian.  Let us only pray the Rapture occurs first.

      M.  Conquering Death -- In the absence of the firm hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ, the Satanist turns to Lord Satan for that hope.  In the 16 years I have spent researching the occult, I have seen numerous pretended paths to eternal life.  One of the most common is the path called "Achieving the Sorcerer's Stone ".  The first book in the Potter series carries this title, for the simple reason that Lord Voldemort is attempting to seize the Sorcerer's Stone so he can live forever. 

The Sorcerer's Stone is the fifth and final stage in the occult drive to achieve eternal life.  In this book, Rowling correctly explains: "The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Sorcerer's Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal. There have been many reports of the Sorcerer's Stone over the centuries, but the only Stone currently in existence belongs to Mr. Nicolas Flamel, the noted alchemist and opera lover.  Mr. Flamel, who celebrated his six hundred and sixty-fith birthday last year , enjoys a quiet life in Devon with his wife, Perenelle (six hundred and fifty-eight)." [p. 220, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's ; Emphasis added] Did you notice Flamel's age is '666 '?

Lord Voldemort makes it quite clear he is seeking eternal life through occult means.  Listen to his words: "I was ripped from my body.  I  was less than than spirit, less than the meanest ghost, but still, I was alive.  What I was, even I do not know, I who have gone further than anybody along the path that leads to immortality. You know my goal -- to conquer death." [Page 653]

V.  List of Books a Fourth-Year Student Will Require

       1.  The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 4

        2.  A Guide to Advanced Transfiguration -- [Page 340]

VI. Attitudes, Values, and Emotions

     A.  Revenge -- is one of the more persistent attitudes in these books.  In this book, one wizard sent another a "cursed hat" simply because he decided not to attend the Quidditch World Cup Match [Page 85].  Revenge is totally forbidden in Scripture, and not one of the attitudes Christian parents want their children to acquire.

     B.  Gambling is glorified as the leading wizards in charge of the Quidditch World Cup and of the Ministry of Magic are depicted as going around to the tents of the attending witches and wizards to see if they wanted to gamble on the outcome of the match [Page 87-89]

      C.  Drinking is also promoted.  Heavy drinking was depicted at the Quidditch World Cup match [Page 88-89].  In the previous three books, one of the Portals from Muggle reality into the "wonderful" world of witchcraft was a brewery, a tavern.  Virtually all the faculty of Hogwart's School are depicted as drinking heavily during one of the many parties at the school [Page 321]

      D.  Thrill of Murder -- when Harry Potter viewed a demonstration by his Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Moody, administer the death curse called Avada Kedavra, he felt a sudden rush of a thrill of the impending death of the spider. In numerous occasions in my lifetime, I have read accounts of a heinous murder in which the murderer confessed that one of the reasons he committed the murder was because of the thrill it delivered.  Is this what you want your children to learn? [Page 217]

      E.  Cheating -- "Cheating's a traditional part of the Triwizard Tournament and always has been". [Professor Moody counseling Harry on what he has to do to win the tournament; Page 343]  Rebellious children do not need any additional encouragement on cheating, do you think?

      F.  Placing Hexes -- elsewhere in this article, I made the comment that witches and wizards are as dependent upon Satanic spells and potions to cope in their everyday life as Christians are similarly dependent upon Jesus Christ.  Throughout the storyline in the four Potter books, we see hexes placed on people and objects for a variety of reasons.  On page 367, hexes were placed on custard creams to cause people who ate them to transfigure into a large canary.

      G.  Refusing to forget or to forgive offenses -- " 'Master!' he shrieked, 'Master forgive me!  Forgive us all ... Get up, Avery', said Voldemort softly. 'Stand up. You ask for forgiveness?  I do not forgive. I do not forget." [Page 649]  Once again, Rowling gets her Satanism correct; they do not forgive offenses, they get revenge for them.  Is the type of attitude you want your child to develop?

      H.  Planning Torture

When Lord Voldemort believed he was going to be victorious over Harry Potter and be able to kill him, he was planning his complete comeback and victory over such White Magic powerhouses such as Hogwart's Headmaster, Dumbledore. When he came to Lucius [Lucifer] Malfoy, the father of one of Harry's classmates, he discussed the specific plan he had in mind for him. 

" 'Lucius, my slippery friend', he whispered, halting before him. 'I am told that you have not renounced the old ways, though to the world you present a respectable face.  You are still ready to take the lead in a spot of Muggle-torture, I believe?' " [Page 650]

VII. Miscellaneous Disgusting Events

      A.  Bestiality -- On page 454, Dumbledore confesses that his brother, Aberforth, was "prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms on a goat." Just a hint in this book, but something to watch in succeeding books, which Rowling has already said will be increasingly "dark".    

      B.  Veela -- "Veela were women, the most beautiful women Harry had ever seen, except that they weren't -- they couldn't be -- human. This puzzled Harry for a moment while he tried to guess what exactly they could be; what could make their skin shine moon-bright like that, or their white-gold hair fan out behind them without wind ... The Veela had started to dance, and Harry's mind had gone completely and blissfully blank ... As the Veela danced faster and faster, wild, half-formed thoughts started chasing through Harry's dazed mind.  He wanted to do something very impressive right now.  Jumping from the box into the stadium seemed a good idea ..." [P103]

These demonic creatures had taken the form of beautiful, seductive women; but, more than that, they could telepathically control a person's mind.  Throughout the book, Veela creatures could place controlling thoughts in a man's mind.  However, Veela had no control over the mind of a woman.  Later in the book, a Veela is depicted dating one of the student leaders of another school of magic. Veela could cast a strong spell over a man, a spell laced with sexual overtones.

We would call these creatures "Sirens", which the dictionary defines thusly:  "Greek Mythology -- group of sea nymphs who, by their sweet singing, lured sailors to their destruction ... a dangerously seductive woman, a temptress".

When I looked up the word, "nymph", I discovered an equally important meaning.  "... female nature spirits inhabiting ... features of nature, woodlands, trees, waters."  This definition fit the Veela very well; they are female spirits.  In our culture, a nymph is also popularly defined as a woman who is possessed by an extremely active sexual libido.  Certainly, this sexual connotation is carried through this book when the Veela are present.

Then, suddenly, in the Quidditch Match, Rowling discloses that the Veela are really vindictive demons.  After getting suddenly angry, the Veela began throwing fistfuls of fire at the other side in the match.  As Harry watched, their beautiful female features dramatically changed.  "Harry saw that they didn't look remotely beautiful now.  On the contrary, their faces were elongating into sharp, cruel-beaked birds, and long, scaly wings were bursting from their shoulders." [Page 111]

The very fact that the Veela could suddenly change physical appearance is proof positive they were demons masquerading as beautiful women.  Thus, when Rowling intimates that a Veela is intimate with one of the human male students, she is implying that a demon had sex with the student.  It seems that God sent the flood to judge an earth in which this type of activity was occurring, regularly! [Genesis 6:2-4]

      C.   Cold-blooded Murder --Lord Voldemort committed cold-blooded murder of a poor witch whom his assistant, Wormtail, had kidnapped.  Once they had gotten all the information from her they needed, and when they realized she knew no more, Voldemort killed her.  Listen to his explanation:  "I killed Bertha because I had to.  She was fit for nothing after my questioning, quite useless.  In any case, awkward questions would have been asked if she had gone back to the Ministry with the news she had met you on her holidays.  Wizards who are supposed to be dead would do well not to run into Ministry of Magic witches at wayside inns ..." [Bertha was a witch working for the Ministry of Magic].

As this story nears its climax, Lord Voldemort has captured Harry Potter and has taken him to the graveyard in which his father is buried, in order that Voldemort finally may obtain a body for his disembodied soul. When Voldemort sees that the winner's trophy, which Voldemort has cursed so it would become the transportation device [called a Portkey] had also brought the other Champion of Hogwarts with him, he kills him in cold blood.

At the climax of the book, after Harry got the upper hand in his wizard's battle against evil Lord Voldemort, a very strange event occurred -- the apparations of the people whom Voldemort had killed with his wand began to come out of the tip of his wand, coming out in the sequence of the most recently killed to the first one killed.  These are the people whom Voldemort had murdered:

Cedric Diggory -- the Champion from Hogwart's School who had grasped the Champion's Trophy at the same time as Harry, resulting in both of them being physically whisked to the graveyard where Lord Voldemort was awaiting.  Upon seeing Cedric with Harry, Voldemort instantly killed him with the Cruciatus Curse, the killing curse that produces such excruciating pain as it kills.  I still think this name of this curse is a play on the word, Crucify, which would make it a slam against Jesus' Crucifixion.

Frank Bryce -- the Muggle Gardener of the Riddle family.  Voldemort had been known as Tom Riddle during his time at Hogwarts.  Frank had been killed because he had heard the disembodied spirit of Voldemort plan on killing Harry with Wormtail.

Bertha Jorkins -- the witch who had worked at the Ministry of Magic, whom Voldemort possessed her, and then killed her when he had extracted all the information she had about upcoming events at Hogwarts.

Harry's Father , and then Harry's Mother -- Voldemort killed them 13 years earlier, with a Cruciatus Curse.  He had tried to kill baby Harry, but failed. It was at this time Harry received his Curse Mark in the forehead.

Voldemort is depicted as a cold-blooded killer, using his power of the occult to kill.

      D.  Harry's scar is described as a "curse scar " for the first time in any of the books.  [Page 21]  I shuddered when I read that Harry's scar between his forehead was a "curse" scar, because this is exactly the location when the Antichrist will demand everyone in the world take his "curse" scar; and, make no mistake that the Mark of the Beast will be a "curse" scar, with the curse coming directly from God.  Listen:  "Whoever pays homage to the beast, and his statue and permits the beast's stamp [mark, inscription] to be put on his forehead or on his hand, he too shall have to drink of the wine of God's indignation and wrath, poured undiluted into the cup of His anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no respite (no pause, no intermission, no rest, no peace) day or night -- these who pay homage to the beast and to his image and whoever receives the stamp of his name upon him." [Revelation 14:9-11, Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

The main fear I have over this Harry Potter phenomenon is that kids are being conditioned that it is cool to receive a mark in your forehead.  Will we see advertisements soon for people to get a tattoo in this particular part of their forehead?  How "cool" will kids think Harry Potter's curse scar is, and want to emulate him? Then, when the time is fully come for Antichrist to arise and to demand that people take this mark between their foreheads, how many kids will feel comfortable with it, since their hero, Harry Potter, had one?  This issue is very real and very dangerous, and your precious child is the target.  Do not be deceived.

     E.  Dementors are featured in Goblet of Fire -- "... Sirius had been in Azkaban, the terrifying wizard jail guarded by creatures called dementors, sightless, soul-sucking fiends who had come to search for Sirius at Hogwarts when he had escaped." [Page 23]  The entire book of Prisoner of Azkaban is chilled by the continuous presence of these Dementors, as they attempted to work their destruction in virtually every single chapter, making the overall mood of the book gloomy and full of palpable evil.

On page 529, Sirius was talking to Harry about the conditions inside the Azkaban prison.  "Most go mad in there, and plenty stop eating in the end.  They lose the will to live.  You could always tell when a death is coming, because the dementors could sense it, they got excited."

"Harry's insides went cold.  The dementors -- tall, hooded creatures whose faces were concealed -- were gliding slowly toward the chair in the center of the room, each grasping one of the man's arms with their dead and rotten-looking hands." [Page 586]

After vanquishing Lord Voldemort in their wizard's battle, Dumbledore and Harry are able to determine that the man at Hogwarts School who was possessed by Voldemort and was serving as his spy, was Barty Crouch.  When Dumbledore decided to start the process of sending Crouch to the Azkaban Prison, he discovered that the Minister of Magic had already called the Dementor Guards, and had allowed them to administer their fatal kiss.  "Harry felt a chill in his stomach ... he knew what the dementor must have done.  It had administered its fatal kiss to Barty Crouch.  It had sucked his soul out through his mouth. He was worse than dead." [Page 703]

SIRIUS IS SATAN!

Sirius is one of the most important characters in this book.  He was unjustly accused and imprisoned in Azkaban, the most horrible prison for witches in the world.  He escaped, however, and is in hiding from the witches who control the Fantasy world of Witchcraft.  Since he is related to Harry, he is constantly on guard against those who would want to harm Harry.  Sirius is able to transform at will into a big black dog in order to conceal himself.

In Satanic legend, Sirius is one of the most important stars in the galaxy; but, more to the point, Sirius is Satan!  Let us listen to what Freemason leader and author, Albert Pike, has to say about Sirius, who came out of the Egyptian Mysteries.

"Isis was aided in her search [for the slain body of Osiris] by Anubis, in the shape of a dog.  He was Sirius, or the Dog-Star, the friend and counsellor of Osiris, and the inventor of language, grammar, astronomy, surveying, arithmetic, music, and medical science; the first maker of laws; and who taught the worship of the Gods, and the building of Temples."  [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 376, Teachings of the 24th Degree, Prince of the Tabernacle]

Thus, we can see the critically key role that Sirius plays in the world of the Egyptian Mysteries.  He was a counsellor of the Messiah figure, Osiris, who died for the good of mankind, and whose body was "nailed up in the ark" [Ibid., p. 377].  Sirius taught the beneficial sciences, made the original laws, taught the worship of the pantheon of pagan gods, and taught how to build the pagan Temples. Sirius was THE man in occult lore, so Rowling chose the "correct" person to come to Harry's aid.

Later, Pike tell us that Sirius was the "largest and brightest Star in the Heavens ..."  [Ibid., p. 454, Teachings of the 25th Degree, Knight of the Brazen Serpent].  Since Sirius is the most important star during the days of June and July, he is the star at the precise time the Summer is the hottest; therefore, we get our saying "Dog Days of Summer" from Sirius. 

In Potter, Sirius can take the shape of a dog, making us realize once again that Rowling knows her Witchcraft right well.

However, when we dig into Luciferian lore just a little deeper, we realize that Sirius is just another name for Hell and for Satan!  Listen to occult writer M. Temple Richmond, writing i

n his book, Sirius, p. 29:

"The Euphrateans, Persians, Phoenicians, and the peoples of Vedic India called Sirius, The Leader, while the Romans knew Sirius as Janitor Lethacus, or Keeper of Hell, both of which titles are perhaps reminiscent of Anubis, the Egyptian god who led the deceased through the underworld.  The Eyptians themselves reverenced Sirius under several other names as well, including Sothis, Sothi, Sept, Sepet, Sopdet, Sot, and Sed."

Thus, this occult writer, Richmond, boldly states that Sirius is the Keeper of Hell!  In the Bible, we call this person, Satan.  Richmond further ties together Sirius with Anubis the dog. 

The Egyptians also called him Set, or Seth.  New Age author and founder of the Luciferian secret society called House of Theosophy, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, writes of the god, Set.  "... Hermes, the god of wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Seth, Set, and Sat-an, and that he was, furthermore, when viewed under his bad aspect, Typhon, the Egyptian Satan, who was also Set." [Isis Unveiled, Vol. I, Science, New York, Trow's Printing and Bookbinding Company, 1877, p. 554, xxxiii.; Emphasis was in original]

Christian author, Bill Schonebelen, former practicing Satanist, says that the Egyptian worship of Set was truly abominable.  He says, "in ancient Egypt, Set was worshipped with obscene, homosexual rituals". These rituals performed for Set/Sirius were so horrible and debased that "later rulers of Egypt defaced their temples and obelisks and tried to drive them from the land." [Schnoebelen, Twice The Child of Hell, p. 9]

Further, we discover that Sirius married his sister, Nephthys, according to the New Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology, Prometheus Press, 1972, p. 21.  Thus, Sirius committed the sin of Incest.

Christian author, Texe Marrs, says "Throughout the centuries Sirius has been recognized by most occultists and esoteric teachers as the location were Lucifer and his hierarchy dwell.  In Christian terminology, Sirius is simply a secretive codeword for 'hell'. {Marrs, Book of New Age Cults and Religions, 1990, p. 299]

Occult author, Veronica Ions, boldly states that Anubis [Sirius as the Dog] was a god of divination and magic [Egyptian Mythology, England: The Hamlyn Publishing Group, Ltd., 1965, p. 83], and Albert Pike notes that the "Egyptian Anubis is the god guarding the gates of death". [Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 430]

Finally, Set/Sirius is portrayed by Black Magick Satanists as the "Devil of Darkness" and the Lord of the Underworld", according to New Age author, M. Esther Harding, in her book, Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern, New York, G.P. Putnam's Sons for the C.G. Jung Foundation For Analytical Psychology, 1971 Edition, p. 48, and 168 respectively].

Further, Harding reveals that this "Underworld" over which Set/Sirius is charge is not Hades, but Tartarus, for "Tartarus in the hell of the damned and it was of this world that Set was the Lord".  Schnobelen then adds the caveat that Set's symbol is the Inverted Pentagram!  Thus, the filthy Satanic Pentagram represents Sirius/Set, by whatever name the occultist uses.

Finally, Masonic author, Albert Pike, reveals in his book, Morals and Dogma, that the Pentagram Masons call the Blazng Star of their Lodges represents Sirius, the Dog Star!   Pike even blasphemously refers to Sirius as the "Guardian and Guide of our Souls ... which to the Ancients was the Sun." [Page 15-16]  This is Sun Worship at its very worst!

Thus, when Harry Potter is related to Sirius, he is related to Satan himself!  And, when Sirius comes to Harry's aid time and again and again, personally delivering him from the clutches of Lord Voldemort, Harry is being delivered by Satan.  In the Potter books, Sirius is depicted as a grossly misunderstood good guy who is really sincere and wonderful in his heart of hearts.  This depiction matches exactly the belief of the occultist, who believes that Lucifer is really the good guy, whom everyone of every era has grossly misunderstood.  In the Garden of Eden, you see, Lucifer was really trying to spiritually "liberate" Adam and Eve, while the God of the Bible was the One trying to keep them in spiritual darkness and slavery.

The God of the Bible is always pictured in the occult as the real bad guy, Who just wants to kill, maim, destroy, and keep His subjects in the spiritual darkness.  When Masons say they want to move to the "Light", they are really moving toward the "light" of Lucifer, whom they consider the "good guy".

Lucifer teaches his minions that, at the Battle of Armageddon, he will defeat Jesus Christ and then storm the gates of Heaven, where he will dethrone God the Father, and rule for eternity according to his "enlightenment".

Sirius appears in this light in the Harry Potter books.  He just wants the best for Harry, and is always defending him from Lord Voldemort.  In the Potter books, Lord Voldemort is cast as the ultimate adversary of Sirius, whom we know now is Lucifer, or Satan. 

Thus, is evil Lord Voldemort really the symbol of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of the Holy Bible?  Doubt it not, for this is the reason God warns, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! [Isaiah 5:20]

We shall have to be on the lookout for the further development of Sirius and Lord Voldemort in later novels, but the stage seems to be set for Lord Voldemort to be revealed as the terrible God of the Christian and Jewish Bibles.

F.  Mega-Mutilation Part Three is a computer game Dudley loved to play. One can only guess as to what this game is all about.

     G.  Everyday occurrences are accomplished by using magic.  Even cooking is done with wands and spells as food just appears on the plates!  Then, after dinner, the plates are magically cleaned.  Necessary eating utensils and tablecloths were similarly conjured [Page 59-60].  Mr. Weasley conjured up candles in order to light the garden as the sun began to set [Page 63].

     H. Suggesting That the World Is Full of Witches --  During the world-wide Quidditch World Cup, attended by witches who have transported into the other realm, "one hundred thousand wizards" attended [Page 69].  Of course, one could immediately relate this event to the annual Rose Bowl, which is attended by a similar number of people.  Once again, Rowlings makes it seem to be glamorous, normal and popular to be a witch or wizard.  A great number of youngsters will agree that such a life seems exciting and will want to join a coven to get started on the adventure. 

Rowling makes this point very clear as she says:  "It was only just dawning on Harry how many witches and wizards there must be in the world." [Page 81]

      I.  Favorably Advocating the Black Arts , Black Magick Witchcraft -- Throughout the occult world, for centuries, battle lines have been drawn between White Magic and Black Magick Witchcraft.  White Magic folk believe they are using the power of the occult for "good"; Black Magick practitioners know they are going to use the same power for "evil".  Occultists believe that, as a person becomes adept in handling and using the power of the occult, they must reach a point where they must decide whether they are going to use this power for "good" or for "evil".  If they choose to use the power for "good", they are said to be following the Right Hand Path, but if they choose the use the occult power for "evil", they are said to be following the Left Hand Path.  Adolf Hitler chose the Black Magick path -- the Left Hand Path.

In the first three books, the reader learns only about the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, whose administration firmly and solidly practices only White Magic Witchcraft.  The school teaches about the Black Magick arts only in teaching how to protect oneself from them.  The reader is led to believe that White Magic is good, and Black Magick is bad.  However, the Goblet of Fire informs us that the world of the occult has two other schools, and that one of them, Durmstrang, actively teaches Black Magick Witchcraft.  At this point, the student has only one option left in his or her thinking; they can only conclude that Black Magick must be a viable option, since Durmstrang has as much credibility as an institution of higher occult learning as Hogwarts.  This shift in focus is very plain and insidious.

However, having said all this, both students of the Bible and Black Magick practitioners know that there is no real distinction between White and Black Magic.  White Magic claims they follow Lucifer while Black Magick claims to follow Satan.  The Bible says that Lucifer and Satan are one creature.  Lucifer was his name before he rebelled against God, while Satan is his name after God cursed him for the rebellion.

      J.  Using Curse Words -- Rowling states that each of her successive books will become a little more dark than its predecessors; therefore, we should not be surprised to see the first use of a swear word.

"... damn it, we're still with the Slytherins ..." [Page 193]

      K.  Poisoning One of the Students -- Professor Snape, the Herbology Professor, "was forcing them to research antidotes. They took this one seriously, as he had hinted that he might be poisoning one of them before Christmas to see if their antidote worked." [Page 234]

      L.  The Teacher of the Defense Against Dark Arts

"The lightening had thrown the man's face into sharp relief, and it was a face unlike any Harry had ever seen ... Every inch of skin seemed to be scarred. The mouth looked like a diagonal gash, and a large chunk of the nose was missing. But it was the man's eyes that made him frightening.  One of them was small and beady. The other was large, round as a coin, and a vivid, electric blue. The blue eye was moving ceaselessly without blinking, and was rolling up, down, and from side to side, quite independent of the normal eye -- and then it rolled right over, pointing into the back of the man's head, so that all they could see was whiteness." [Page 184-185]

"May I introduce our new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher?" said Dumbledore brightly into the silence. "Professor Moody." [Ibid]

"Apparently, Moody's magical eye could see through solid wood, as well as out of the back of his head." [Page 212]

      M.  Description of Lord Voldemort's disembodied spirit -- [Page 640] -- Harry realizes that Voldemort's assistant, Wormtail, was carrying Voldemort's spirit in his robes; remember, this book is set in a dimension in which spirits can be readily seen.  Listen to this description:  "Wormtail pulled open the robes on the ground, revealing what was inside them, and Harry let out a yell that was strangled in the wad of material blocking his mouth.  It was as though Wormtail had flipped over a stone and revealed something ugly, slimy, and blind -- but worse, a hundred times worse.  The thing Wormtail had been carrying had the shape of a crouched human child, except that Harry had never seen anything less like a child.  It was hairless and scaly-looking, a dark, raw, reddish black.  Its arms and legs were thin and feeble and its face -- no child alive ever had a face like that -- flat and snakelike, with gleaming red eyes. 

The origin of Lord Voldemort's evil genius and power is now obvious from this description, is it not?  He is reptilian, "snakelike", a demonic creature that looks like Satan himself.

Wormtail then drops this disembodied spirit into a cauldron he had boiling, and then began to chant the following ritualistic words, designed to give Voldemort a body again. 

"Bone of the father, unknowingly given, you will renew your son!"  Suddenly, the grave on which Harry was sitting cracked open, a fine trickle of bone dust rose into the air, and descended into the cauldron.  Harry's dead father had just given his son some of his bone.

"Flesh of the servant -- u-unwillingly given -- you will -- revive your master." Wormtail then takes a dagger and cut off his right arm, and dropped it into the cauldron.

"B-blood of the enemy -- forcibly taken -- you will -- resurrect your foe." Wormtail then takes the dagger in his remaining hand and cuts a large gash in Harry's arm, causing a large stream of blood to run down the arm.  Harry struggled, but was held too tightly by the ropes.  Wormtail captured Harry's blood in a glass vial and poured it into the boiling cauldron.

Wormtail thus completed the ritual designed to get a body back for Lord Voldemort; and, he had paid a huge price, having cut off his own arm.  Now, look at the body Lord Voldemort had resurrected for his disembodied spirit.

"... through the mist in front of him [Harry], he saw, with an icy surge of terror, the dark outline of a man, tall and skeletally thin, rising slowly from inside the cauldron.  'Robe me', said the high, cold voice from behind the steam, and Wormtail, sobbing and moaning, still cradling his mutilated arm, scrambled to pick up the black robes from the ground, got to his feet, reached up, and pulled them one-handed over his master's head."

"The thin man stepped out of the cauldron, staring at Harry, and Harry stared back into the face that had haunted his nightmares for three years.  Whiter than a skull, with wide, livid scarlet eyes, and a nose that was flat as a snake's for slits for nostrils.  Lord Voldemort had risen again."

"His hands were like large, pale spiders, his long white fingers caressed his own chest, his arms, his face; the red eyes, whose pupils were slits, like a cat's gleamed all the more brightly through the darkness ... he took not the slightest notice of Wormtail, who lay twitching and bleeding on the ground, nor of the great snake, which had slithered back into sight and was circling Harry again, hissing." [Page 640-644]

Truly, this description of the being which arose -- resurrected -- from the cauldron after the ritual, is straight out of the Pit of Hell.  Lord Voldemort resurrected as some being from Hell, not as a human being.  Christian parent, do you really want your child to read this Satanic trash? 

No wonder our Lord foretold of the attitude toward him people would have at the End of the Age:  "... because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." [Matthew 24:12]  The Mass Media of today is multiplying sin [iniquity] greatly, causing the love of most people to grow cold toward Jesus Christ.  Truly, this Satanic material, read by youngsters as young as 8 years old, is designed to steal your child's soul for Lord Voldemort, Lord Satan.

VIII. Occult Numbers Used In Story Plot

    A.  Eleven --is one of the most important numbers in the occult, as it is a primary number.  However, this number carries a sinister connotation to the Satanist.  W. Wynn Wescott, one of the most important Satanists of the 19th Century, wrote:  "... eleven is the essence of all that is sinful, harmful, and imperfect ... symbols of destruction, violence, defeat, and death."  [The Occult Power of Numbers, p. 100-101]  Wescott goes further to explain that eleven is the number of Adam's consort, Lilith, "a she-devil, dangerous to women ..." [Ibid.]  

Thus, we should not be surprised to learn that eleven is an important number in Harry Potter books.   Harry was admitted to Hogwarts School on his 11th birthday, thus ending his most terrible existence in the Muggles world.  [Sorcerer's Stone].  But, in this book, we learn that Voldemort had been steadily increasing his power and ability in the Black Arts for eleven years before he felt strong enough to kill Harry's parents.

     B.  Thirteen [Page 144] -- It had taken 13 years for evil Lord Voldemort to regain his strength so he could again attack Harry, and the Dark Mark sign was his symbol declaring this fact to the world.  The number 13 is assigned in the Bible as the number of rebellion, and to its chief rebel, Satan.        

IX.  Illuminist Symbols

     A.  Peacocks -- peacock

One of the symbols used by occultists to represent the All-Seeing Eye capability of Antichrist is the Peacock.  Occultists simply love the "eye" pattern on the tail feathers of the Peacock, so over time, they have made this beautiful bird one of the many symbols for Antichrist.  In this book, Peacocks were tethered at the entrance of one of the wizard's tents at the Quidditch World Cup match. [Page 79].  Once again, we see Rowling use actual symbols in her books representing the coming Antichrist.  Sorcerer's Stone depicted the Unicorn; The Chamber of Secrets depicted the Phoenix Bird; and now, Goblet of Fire depicts the Peacock.  Rowling surely knows her Illuminist Witchcraft!

      B.  Unicorn -- The most important ingredient of a powerful magical wand was "a single hair from the tail of a ... male unicorn ..." [Page 309]  Since one of the symbols of Antichrist is a unicorn, I find it significant that the power flowing from a tail hair is so strong in this storyline.

On page 436, a unicorn has been caught and is ready for the Care of Magical Creatures class. "... toward a tree on the edge of the forest ... a large and beautiful unicorn was tethered.  Many of the girls 'oooohed!' at the sight of the unicorn. 'Oh, it's so beautiful!', whispered Lavender Brown ... the unicorn was so brightly white it made the snow all around look gray."  Once again, Rowling depicts the unicorn in glowing terms, much the way the unsaved people will view the true Antichrist when he appears.

      C.  Phoenix Bird -- "Mr. Ollivander explained that the phoenix feather in Harry's wand had come from the same bird that had supplied the core of Lord Voldemort's [wand]." [Page 310]  The same principle applies here as in the discussion, above, of the Unicorn.  Rowling consistently uses the correct symbolism for Satanism and Illuminati Black Magick Satanism in her books.

As Harry was fighting Voldemort in a battle to the death, his mind suddenly was flooded with the song of hope, the Phoenix Song. "And then an unearthly and beautiful sound filled the air. It was coming from every thread of the light-spun web vibrating around Harry and Voldemort. It was a sound Harry recognized, though he had heart it only once before in his life: phoenix song ... He concentrated every last particle of his mind upon forcing the bead back toward Voldemort, his ears full of phoenix song, his eyes furious, fixed ... Voldemort ... looked astonished and almost fearful." [Page 664-665] 

As Harry is painfully reliving the horrible experiences of losing his parents to Voldemort, and of his battles with Voldemort for his life, the emotional pain was almost too much to bear.  Suddenly, the Phoenix Bird comes to Harry's rescue.  "There was a soft rush of wing.  Fawkes, the phoenix, had left his perch, flown across the office, and landed on Harry's knee ... The phoenix let out one soft, quavering note.  It shivered in the air, and Harry felt as though a drop of hot liquid had slipped down his throat into his stomach, warming him and strengthening him." [Page 695]

"Harry suddenly became aware that Fawkes had left his knee.  The phoenix had fluttered to the floor.  It was resting its beautiful head against Harry's injured leg, and thick, pearly tears were falling from its eyes onto the wound left by the spider. The pain vanished. The skin mended. His leg was repaired." [Page 698]

Once again, the Phoenix Bird -- symbol of Antichrist -- is presented as a glorious hope and support,  spiritual and emotional deliverance, and even physical healing, of Harry Potter.  Soon, Antichrist will actually be walking among men, and he will be presented in just this way for all of mankind.

Conditioning, conditioning, and more conditioning.  The only question is, are you allowing Harry Potter to condition your precious child?

X.  SUMMARY

This book was an incredible 734 pages long, but it was also much darker than any of its predecessors.  If Rowling lives up to her promise to make the last  three books increasingly "darker", I cannot imagine what raw Satanism they will possess.

Lord Voldemort fails in his attempt to kill Harry Potter once again, but he does succeed in getting a physical body back so he can function in this dimension.  However, his body is not human, but demonic, with red glowing eyes, and a head that is described as "snakelike", and nostrils that are slits like that of a snake.

This book combines the symbology of the previous books, and conditions its readers to ultimately accept the coming Antichrist.  This book uses more standard Satanic symbolism for Antichrist than any of the other three books.

The storyline ends with Lord Voldemort being defeated again by Harry Potter, but still possessing a body and still getting stronger.  Headmaster Dumbledore has a falling-out with the Ministry of Magic, over the tactics that should be employed to protect the world of witches and wizards from Voldemort.  You can almost see the storyline of the next book, promised by Rowling to be "darker" than ever before.

Conditioning, conditioning, conditioning.  Remember the standard New Age dictum that the Antichrist "cannot appear until, and unless, a substantial proportion of the people have been conditioned to accept him."  These books generally, and Goblet of Fire specifically, conditions mightily.

Truly, the End of the Age is here. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
