Spirit Conjuring: Strip Clubs
Mark 6:22 “And when the daughter of Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.”
It’s not really news that dance and seduction has been around forever and has lured men and women with lust and temptation resulting in them making huge mistakes, but what I want to focus on is exposing the veil behind what this all is and what we are getting into with the ritual. Yes stripping is an ancient ritual because characteristically rituals need elements typically more than one to make it a ritual. Some people take the word and apply a loose meaning; something simply done consistently, but the meaning is far more profound and always had a religious origin. But what religion is symbolic of now it was not prior, as religion was always spirit infused practices.
Currently, strip and gentleman clubs are a thing, but what do they all consist of, mirrors, stripper poles, nudity, music, and alcohol. Unfortunately, this is all that is required to summon entities. Upon recent study, I’ve learned that mirrors serve as a portal to another realm, had I known this prior I would have avoided them but in our ignorance we make errors. Apparently, the mirror has always been a divination tool used by pagans to channel sprits allowing the spirits to frequent back and forth between two worlds. It is unbelievable how much we let in due to our influences because the modern mirror is actually a replacement of the black obsidian mirror called a scrying mirror. The practice of scrying is an old pagan practice where a shiny black surface that can capture the reflection, usually made from an organic material like a crystal, was used to summon a spirit to make a request or invite information. In the popular children’s movie Snow White, we are introduced to scrying when the queen is seen speaking to a spirit who appears through a black mirror providing her with information. Perhaps this is why our televisions are made from black liquid crystals, but I digress.
Now that we know a little of the origin of the mirror, let’s move on to the root of the stripper pole. Ancient Babylonians regarded phallic (penis) symbolism as sacred and it was heavily prevalent in their statues and architecture. The Most High warns us that “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils” (Revelation 18:2) American culture is rooted in demonic practices and has over time convinced us to not only accept and but to love its gateways. The stripper pole is symbolic of the male phallus and a woman seductively dancing is not only enticing the human viewer but also the spiritual one as well. Prior to this the dance and seduction and the phallus was to worship a fertility Goddess. The Maypole ritual is a 12th Century ritual that took place during the month of May that was used to invoke a Sumerian Love Goddess Diana, which in previous posts, I have explained that Diana is Semiramis, Minerva, Ishtar, Isis and many other names are the same deity. With that said knowingly or not strippers are using their bodies for the invocation of spirit beings, so do not be surprised if things become strange for you after becoming a patron.
Alcohol, particularly liquor is another spirit surfing device. Made from ethyl alcohol and water, alcohol has often been named Spirits. I myself have often wondered why the word spirit was coined with liquor. What context did this mean or take when applied to alcohol, and I discovered that it was named spirits by Aristotle because he believed that “drinking a distilled beer, wine or alcohol put a spirit into the body” (Aristotle). There have been more than one account in the Bible where the Holy Spirit was mistaken as being intoxicated implying that being spirit filled looks very similar to being intoxicated with wine or strong drink. Some may say that’s great, but what spirit is one filled with while drinking under dark circumstances. In my research, I found that alchemists originally produced alcohol and an alchemist was the first to master distillation in attempt to make elixirs. The alchemists would distill liquid, collect a vapor and gather a “spirit” that they believed came off the material. This is all said to say that the ancient minds welcomed and were aware of the spirit beings associated with strong drink yet in our modern world we happily accept the beings that exist to destroy us. There is no wonder when we look at the effects of the alcohol and our spiritual conditions we can see why The Most High Yah said to “give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish” Proverbs 31:6 and not to the man who would like to continue living.
Potions, spells, and rituals, all have the same foundational intent to invoke spirits and the Strip Club environment offers all the opportunities to do so. The props given, the alcohol, the nudity, the dancing, the mirrors, is attempting to entice the flesh with dry pleasure. The enemy never forces you to do anything, he only presents the allure, and meanwhile you are deceived into an agreement with spirits that flourish as a result of their invocation. By partaking in this culture, the gift of hearing the Holy Spirit is drowned out and is unable to inculcate a sense of moral responsibility present in the spirit of man. Corinthians 12:2 (KJV)21 And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.
