King James “Other” Works before The Holy Bible (KJV)

  [1]

I need to tell you a bit about the bible… This will require a few deep breaths to consider. Please remember that Q tells us this is bigger than we know. King James wrote two books, not one… The first was called Demonology [1603]…

The book endorses the practice of witch hunting in a Christian society. James begins the book:

The fearefull aboundinge at this time in this countrie, of these detestable slaves of the Devil, the Witches or enchanters, hath moved me (beloved reader) to dispatch in post, this following treatise of mine (…) to resolve the doubting (…) both that such assaults of Satan are most certainly practised, and that the instrument thereof merits most severely to be punished.

King James sought to prove the existence of witchcraft to other Christians through biblical teachings. As such, his work is separated into three books based on the different arguments the philosophers discuss, with citations of biblical scripture throughout the text. [2]

This book began the witch trials. A ritual where human adrenochrome was inhaled by villagers in a satanic ritual. Innocent people were exposed to “justice” and more and more fell to the psychotic effects of mind control …

They were watching torture described as justice. This is how you break a panda. The trauma bonds the victim into believing anything. They just want to know what’s right. They’ve lost their own gravity. This is a form of mind control. A psychotic mitosis …

The victims new gravity is the corner with the least amount of shame. This is where they feel the safest. If you allow someone to stay there long enough their neural pathways congeal into a person. They are fixed as a “panda”. This is the shame cult of one…  Once you turn [into] a panda, you can motivate with a shame prompt. “The voice of the devil made me do it.” They are not in control of their actions. They are living in a bottomless terror. As we start to come to The Great Awakening we must remember that shame is EVERYWHERE…

When I say everywhere it is going to be found in the bible. This is the concept of “sin.” I know this is hard for some of you. But you have to understand the checkerboard is as old as the pyramid. Moses woke his people. The very same who freely built the pyramids…

Historians tell us no slaves were involved in the building of the pyramids. The egyptians were a version of the panda. “Volunteers” in the same way #LoveTrumpsHater turns your old schoolmates into raging children. They forget themselves b/c this is how it works with shame…

King James second work was the KJV Bible [1611]. The Great Awakening is about overcoming the controls of shame. A lesson of humility has been twisted into sin. Humility is the doorway to god. Sin avoidance is the making of the panda. Respectfully. With Love…

Shut off devices to pray. Look inside and peel off the subversion. Inner awakening. By dropping your shame, the light from within will shine even brighter. Your humility is the fuel of your lamp. People will see your true message and it will ring a bell inside them…

Shame/sin is the belief in the killing of our shadows. Humility is the recognition we want more light. Exercise your intuition every single day through prayer and thoughtful contemplation. Hunt shame like it’s rabid and dangerous. [1]

DAEMONOLOGIE, In Forme of a Dialogue, Divided Into Three ...

**********************

King James is most famous for putting together the King James Bible, but reading that doesn’t give us much insight into his personality. That’s where this book comes in.

Daemonologie takes the form of a dialogue between Epistemon, who believes in witches, and the skeptical Philomathes. However, Epistemon quickly convinces Philomathes that witches are real by quoting a few scriptures, so most of the book consists of Epistemon explaining the details of witchcraft with Philomathes merely prompting him to continue speaking. King James not only cites canonical scriptures, but also scriptures from the Apocrypha, which is no surprise since the King James Bible originally included the Apocrypha in 1611, not removing it until 1885.

Along the way we learn of the difference between necromancers, magicians, and witches. King James also goes into ghosts, werewolves, incubi, succubi, demoniacs, and fairies. However, he draws the line at the idea there is a good angel on one shoulder and an evil angel on the other shoulder of everyone. He tells us this isn’t true. Apparently, His Majesty was not familiar with the Shephard of Hermas, an early Christian document considered canonical by many early church fathers which explicitly states just this idea.

He also tells us the Devil will sometimes possess a corpse and use it to impregnate nuns. How can you tell if the person trying to impregnate you is actually a possessed corpse? “It is to be noted, that in whatsoeuer way he [the Devil] vseth it, that sperme seemes intollerably cold to the person abused.”

Also included in this volume are notes on the trial of Doctor Fian, a sorcerer King James put to death while King of Scotland. Here we learn that witches can cause hurricanes by using a cat somehow, that witches kiss the Devil’s buttocks to pay homage to him, and that the Devil leaves his mark on a witch’s privy members by using his tongue. Thus, to discover a witch, one must shave off all their pubic hair to look for the Devil’s mark.

Torture is also a good way to get a witch to confess. One witch confessed to attempting to kill King James himself by hanging a toad upside down for three days to collect its venom. Her plan would have worked if not for the fact she wasn’t able to gain access to King James’ used laundry to complete her spell.

Doctor Fian, a school teacher, apparently fell in love with one of his pupils’ sisters. He told the boy that if he obtained three of his sister’s pubic hairs he wouldn’t hit the boy like he did all of his other students. When the boy tried to obtain the pubic hairs, his sister woke up and called for her mother. Her mother, being a witch herself, knew what was going on, so she had her son give Doctor Fian three hairs from the udder of a cow. When Doctor Fian cast his spell, the cow was the one who fell in love with him and followed him around everywhere. There’s even a woodcut in this volume depicting the scene.

Under torture, Doctor Fian confessed to being a witch. However, after escaping from prison and being recaptured, he renounced his former testimony and said he only confessed due to fear of further torture. Whereupon, King James had him tortured some more: “His nailes vpon all his fingers were riuen and pulled off with an instrument called in Scottish a Turkas, which in England wee call a payre of pincers, and vnder euerie nayle there was thrust in two needels ouer euen up to the heads.”

However, so great was the Devil’s hold upon Doctor Fian that he still would not confess. So he was put to death. Basically, if someone confesses to being a witch under torture, they’re a witch, but if they don’t confesses under torture, that also means they’re a witch because only the Devil could make someone endure so much pain.

KING JAMES EXAMINING A WITCH DEMONOLOGY SKULL …

This work acts as a political and theological dissertation in the form of a philosophical dialogue between the characters Philomathes and Epistemon who debate on the various topics of magic, sorcery, witchcraft and demonology. The purpose seems to be educational piece on the study of witchcraft and to inform the public about the histories and etymologies of all subcategories involved in magical practices. The work also serves to make formal accusations against the practice of witchcraft and comparatively elaborates James’ views against papistry. In the preface, King James states that he chose to write the content in the form of a dialogue to better entertain the reader.

By doing so, he follows the method of many philosophical writers prior to his time. As the main plot, Philomathes hears news in the kingdom regarding the rumors of witchcraft which seems all miraculous and amazing but could find no one knowledgeable on the matter to have a serious political discussion on the issue. He finds a philosopher named Epistemon who is very knowledgeable on the topics of theology.

Book One
The argument of the first book is on the following topics regarding the description of Magic:

  • The division of the various magical arts with a comparison between Necromancy and witchcraft
  • The use of charms, circles and conjurations
  • The division of Astrology
  • The Devil’s contract with man
  • Comparisons between the miracles of God and the devil
  • The purpose of these practices

Book Two
The main argument of the second book is based on the following topics regarding the description of Sorcery and Witchcraft:

  • The difference between biblical proof and imagination or myth
  • A description of Sorcery and its comparison with Witchcraft
  • The path of a sorcerer’s apprenticeship
  • Curses and the roles of Satan
  • The appearance of devils; the times and forms which they appear
  • The division of witch actions
  • Methods of transportation and the illusions of Satan

Book Three
The third book is the conclusion of the whole Dialogue. Here, King James provides a description of all these kinds of Spirits and Specters that trouble men or women. His Classification of demons was not based on separate demonic entities with their names, ranks, or titles but rather categorized them based on 4 methods used by any given devil to cause mischief or torment on a living individual or a deceased corpse. He quotes previous authors who state that each devil has the ability to appear in diverse shapes or forms for varying arrays of purposes as well. In his description of them, he relates that demons are under the direct supervision of God and are unable to act without permission, further illustrating how demonic forces are used as a “Rod of Correction” when men stray from the will of God and may be commissioned by witches, or magicians to conduct acts of ill will against others but will ultimately only conduct works that will end in the further glorification of God despite their attempts to do otherwise. The demonic forces were described as follows:

  • Spectra: Used to describe spirits that trouble houses or solitary places
  • Obsession: Used to describe spirits that follow upon certain people to outwardly trouble them at various times of the day. Referencing Incubi and Succubae
  • Possession: Used to describe spirits that enter inwardly into a person to trouble them.
  • Faries: Used to describe illusionary spirits that prophesy, consort, and transport their servants.
