  1. Edgar Cayce Readings

16. The pyramid, the altars before the doors of the varied temple activities, was an injection from the people of Oz and Mu; and will be found to be separate portions, and that referred to in the Scripture as high places of family altars, family gods, that in many portions of the world became again the injection into the activities of groups in various portions, as gradually there were the turnings of the people to the satisfying and gratifying of self's desires, or as the Baal or Baalilal activities again entered the peoples respecting their associations with those truths of light that came from the gods to the peoples, to mankind, in the earth. (5750-1)


16. Before that we find the entity was in that land now known as or called the Atlantean, during those periods when there were the destructions or separations of the land during the period of the first destruction.

17. The entity was among those who aided in the preparation of the explosives, or those things that set in motion the fires of the inner portions of the earth that were turned into destructive forces (unawares to many of those, yet) - as was experienced by those that had followed in the law of the One, and those that followed the law of Baal, the laws of nature are used by the spiritual laws for the completing of what are as destined forces in the lives and experiences of those that journey through this mundane sphere. For whom the Lord hath called, whom the Lord Himself hath ordained for a service, whom the Lord hath joined in his activities in the earth to make a great people, him will He preserve; if those things that make for the growing together of the activities in a material world, those things that satisfy for the pleasures of the earth's sojourn, bring harmony and not contention in the experience of those that are called. (621-1)


24. Before that we find the entity was in the land now known as the Atlantean, and many were the sojourns; for there the entity oft laid aside the physical body to become regenerated in its activities in the material associations, even from those periods of the beginnings of the destructive influences that arose from the sons of Belial through the activities of Beelzebub. (823-1)


36. Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land, during those periods when there were those activities that brought destruction upon the land - by those who had turned, did turn, the advanced activities into destructive forces.

37. The ENTITY was among the children of the Law of One; those that were the sons of men, yet of the daughters of the Lord or those who had become purified of those entanglements in the animal forces that became manifest among many.

38. Then in its activity, as Ax-El-Tan, the entity made those attempts to curb the activities of the sons of Belial and Beelzebub. [Beelzebub - Mat. 10:25, etc.] Hence it rose to those positions as the warrior among the Atlanteans; and turned to the use of destructive forces with that expression which finds itself in the entity's activity in dealing with things to 'fight the devil with his own fire.' These became the law of the entity. Yet when these things arose more and more to the force of the Law of One, from the spiritual import, they made for the turning to those things that we know in the present as CONVENIENCES for man.

39. Hence those things that pertain to machinery and its activities are of interest; locomotion, whether in the airplane, in the gas bags, or the motorbile, or the like - all find a close association with the entity; yet there is a dislike for all. For these brought in the experience that of being carried away from the purpose of FREEDOM of activity, FREEDOM of speech, freedom to act as the promptings of the conscience of the individual might dictate the expression of itself.

40. These, as the entity experienced in the earth, as the entity experienced in those sojourns in the environs about the earth, are well - if they are kept in check. But these running riot for self-indulgence, for self-gratification, for selfish interests, become in the end those things that turn and REND the very heart of the body itself. (1066-1)


39. The entity then was among the peoples of the Law of One, as compared with the peoples of Beelzebub (?) and those that made for the personal gratification of those desires within the body for power, for self-exaltation, for self-glorification.

40. Oft the entity was pulled between two ways, for the BODILY affections were close to those that were of the other peoples.

41. Hence it was oft torn between the two, or there were conflicting forces in the experience of the entity through that sojourn. Yet by the very power of its individual duty the entity held aloof from the closer associations.

42. Thus we will find in the experiences in the earth in the present, there will be periods when such conflicting emotions for the very activities of self, the very associations with individuals, will bring those experiences in the very sojourn, the very application of the knowledge, the very application of understanding in the experience of the entity.

43. AGAIN may it be said, hold fast to that which is set as thy ideal. Necessary at times to make for sacrifices within the material self that the soul may grow, but know that each impulse, each activity in thy experience HAS its place in thy development, as to the choice thou dost make. THESE be the things that make for the directing forces. (1189-1)


47. Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land, during those periods when there were those activities that brought about the last destruction of same through the warrings between the children of the Law of One and the sons of Belial or Bel (?). [Baal]

48. There the entity was among those who waned between the children of faith or the Law of One and those who sought the use of the spiritual forces for their own self-indulgences, self-aggrandizements. (1599-1)


6. Then ye, as a soul-entity, in the beginning sought companionship with God; losing that companionship by choice of that which would satisfy or gratify a material desire only. Thus, ye, as the Master, enter again and again, ye come to fulfill the law, the law that brought thy soul into being to be one with Him.

7. Hence at this particular period when there are changes to be wrought, ye have work to do. For ye have been made conscious of the fact that all have fallen short of their duty, and that if they would bring the earth to be a place in which even their own offspring would live, they must learn to search for their God. And they must put away those gods of the Sidonians [see: Ashtoreth,1 the female counterpart of Baal], those gods of the heathen, gods of self, gods of gratifying of flesh; and crucifying the flesh - in mind, in body, in spirit - show thyself worthy of being given the opportunity to express thyself to others. (3645-1)


21. Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land when there were those first disturbances which brought about the upheavals. The Sons of Belial were using the spiritual truths for self-aggrandizement, self-indulgence. (5395-1)


47. For in the experience as among the children of Belial in the Atlantean land, ye sought to make for the use of the spiritual laws to gratify the beauty, the joy of carnal living. So ye brought destruction, not only to thyself bodily but to those of that land; and thus brought destruction.

48. For hath He not given, "They that turn their face far from me, I will blot them out"? Yet souls must indeed again and again meet themselves. For hath He not made thee equal with Him, IF ye will love His coming?

49. Then, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman not ashamed of thy daily life. Though ye may be in need of those things that would bring the pleasures as some ye see about you, PROVIDE the needs of thy body in love and in justice and in mercy; for the silver and the gold are the Lord's, and those that love Him shall not beg bread. (1977-1)

9 And during all these years Belial shall be let loose against Israel, as God spake through Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amos, saying: ‘Fear and the pit and the snare are upon thee, O inhabitant of the land.’
10 This means the three nets of Belial, concerning which Levi the son of Jacob spake, by which he caught Israel and directed their faces to three kinds of righteousness.
11 The first is fornication, the second is the wealth (of wickedness), the third is the pollution of the Sanctuary.
12 He that cometh up from this shall be caught by that, and he that escapeth from this shall be caught by that.2

      1. Testament of Reuben
7 For a pit unto the soul is the sin of fornication, separating it from God, and bringing it near to idols, because it deceiveth the mind and understanding, and leadeth down young men into Hades before their time.
8 For many hath fornication destroyed; because, though a man be old or noble, or rich or poor, he bringeth reproach upon himself with the sons of men and derision with Beliar.
9 For ye heard regarding Joseph how he guarded himself from a woman, and purged his thoughts from all fornication, and found favour in the sight of God and men.
10 For the Egyptian woman did many things unto him, and summoned magicians, and offered him love potions, but the purpose of his soul admitted no evil desire.
11 Therefore the God of your fathers delivered him from every evil and hidden death.
12 For if fornication overcomes not your mind, neither can Beliar overcome you.3

      1. Testament of Simeon
12 Beware, therefore, of fornication, for fornication is mother of all evils, separating from God, and bringing near to Beliar.
13 For I have seen it inscribed in the writing of Enoch that your sons shall be corrupted in fornication, and shall do harm to the sons of Levi with the sword.
14 But they shall not be able to withstand Levi; for he shall wage the war of the Lord, and shall conquer all your hosts.4

      1. Judges
11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim:
12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger.
13 And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtoreth.
14 And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies.5
