It’s fundamental to getting enlightenment to get to God and come from God. As it is written: “God is light and in him no darkness at all”; and Jesus said, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of light”.
Broadly speaking there have been three groups of enlightened ones.
1. First there are those under the authority and influence of the fallen cherubim Lucifer, whose name actually means “light bringer” (c.f., Venus, the morning star, the “son of the morning” Isa. 14.12). These dupes can be both angelic and human, and have a measure of Satan’s inspiration and (twisted) ‘enlightenment’ to that degree they are given over to him.
Devils or demons are lying, seducing, and destroying spirits that cannot be redeemed; and they militantly serve Lucifer’s agenda, which is fundamentally to dupe and destroy as many humans as possible before he, himself, is destroyed with the lost of the race of Adam in the sulphurous lake of fire. The devils or demons will of course use their human dupes to communicate Lucifer’s ‘enlightenment’; and because of demonic power over people, and because the race of Adam has even taken on the very nature of Satan since the fall into sin in the garden, circa 4000 BC, devilish influences are the source of all doctrine that runs contrary to the doctrine and religion of God as it’s revealed in the Bible.
Jews have come under the power of devilish doctrines, and they actually have Satan’s enlightenment more than any other race or nation, because they’ve been the nearest race or nation to Satan since the great Jew archetype, Judas Iscariot, got possessed by the Devil and betrayed Jesus Christ, in the first century. In fact the devils or demons can even inhabit and directly control the bodies and minds of ‘Christian’ ministers of religion. For scripture says they’re sometimes “transformed into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers be transformed as the ministers of righteousness” (2 Cor. 11.13-15).
2. Secondly, there is that enlightenment humans ‘conjure up’ for themselves in a merely psychical or soulish way, and which once again runs contrary to the doctrine of the true and living God, and which fundamentally betrays its Luciferian character by flattering the ego, and which is probably sought after by the Jews more than any other race or nation. For the Jews’ are always trying to convince themselves and the goyim that they have a high IQ; and they do that largely to quiet their guilty conscience that tells them they’ve been deceived by rejecting the gospel, and are in danger of dying without God and being damned in hell for all of eternity for their crimes against Jesus, Christians and the Gentiles.
In fact the Jews’ religion is not just a smokescreen for a international financial corporation, which supports a global Jewish political takeover agenda; but it’s also a mad meritocracy, in the sense that most religious Jews are are obsessed with fuelling their ego, by trying to rise in the ranks of the hierarchy of the international Jewry, especially by accumulating money, and/or by getting renown among their co-religionists for their peculiar power of human reason.
This obsession the Jews have had with psychical or soulish enlightenment since they left off God and the gospel in the first century explains why they’ve venerated the tombs and skulls of their scholars and rabbis, and why the Jews’ kabbalah of the Zohar is called “splendour or radiance”. It is also the key to the Age of Reason, worship of the g-ddess of Reason, and the “Enlightenment”, in Europe, brought in by the Jews and their acolytes who fomented the French Revolution.
It is true that God has graciously given Jews an extra dose of the power of reason since they committed the crime of the Crucifixion, and no doubt to help them reason their way out of the mess they’ve since gotten into; but sadly the Jews lack wisdom, and have twisted reason and hence have only used it to invent more complex ways to circumvent God and the gospel of their salvation, and to wreak havoc on the Christians and Gentiles they hate and want to eradicate.
There’s also obviously a psychical or soulish enlightenment that’s rank pagan, like that received in conjunction with repetative chanting in dances around a camp fire, and after doing strange things like lying on beds of nails or sitting on top of a flag pole.
Much of modern monastic asceticism fits in here somewhere too, as does the ‘enlightenment’ of the medieval Alumbrados.
The Web says:
“Most of those persecuted as Alumbrados were Conversos (Jewish converts to Christianity) or Moriscos (Moorish converts) … Ignatius of Loyola, while studying at Salamanca in 1527, was brought before an ecclesiastical commission on a charge of sympathy with the Alumbrados, but escaped with an admonition. Miguel de Molinos was also accused of connection due to his publication of The Spiritual Guide and its similarity to early Alumbrados publications from Pedro Ruiz de Alcaraz and Isabella de la Cruz.”
European Illuminism tends more to toward the human reason of Judaism and is a bit more sophisticated than the enlightenment of the Alumbrados, but it’s certainly in the same category of mere psychical or soulish enlightenment. For Illuminism was created by leading finance Jews and their Jew cohorts to cooperate with the Jews’ Lodges in Europe as a lead up to the French Revolution; and its name, which means “the enlightened”, was a decoy to make people think “enlightened” Roman Catholics and not the Jews had something to do with the atrocities of the Reign of Terror behind the scenes, because the Jews knew the ante-Nicene Church Fathers had given it to believers in the gospel, who had received “the grace of illumination in an enlightened understanding” after submitting to Christian baptism.
Leading finance Jews evidently commissioned the Gentile Weishaupt to found European Illuminism because they knew he wasn’t a Jew, and was raised in the R.C religion and trained by the Jesuits, and hence would discredit Catholicism to some extent, and with that provide further cover for Jews as the real directors of the French Revolution from behind the scenes. The Jew Protocols endorse that, where it’s written: “the art of directing masses and individuals by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations of life in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the goyim understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of our administrative brain.
“Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have either in the drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity. In this respect the Jesuits alone might have compared with us, but we have contrived to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking mob as an overt organization, while we ourselves all the while have kept our secret organization in the shade.”
Some of the medieval Alumbrados may have been true converts to Jesus Christ, but it’s evident that many of them mistook a mere psychic connection with God and the Holy Ghost as a true conversion; and many were no doubt duped by hysteria initiated predominantly by silly women, and probably largely as an issue of the preaching of some judaized cult figure like Loyola, and as a mere imitation of the presence and power of the third person of the Deity. You get the same sort of deception fostered in judaized churches in Christendom today, especially those deceived by so-called prosperity doctrine and the emotionalism of those groups of Christians of the Pentecostalist persuasion.
3. This mention of prosperity doctrine and Pentecostalism leads on to the third group of enlightened ones, who are really the only ones who can actually see, because everyone else is blind, that is, until they come to God like they did. These are the true Christians who have received the Holy Ghost, by repenting and praying to the Father through the name of Jesus; and who are enlightened by God to that extent that they’re given over to him and obedience to his word.
There are no doubt tens of millions of true believers in Jesus on the planet today, either in the sects of Christendom or outside of them; and they’ll all testify that they’ve received the Spirit of God using the aforementioned protocol, and as a tangible presence of a Divine person coming on them and after that residing in them, to change, enlighten and empower them. The origin of this only true enlightenment in this present dispensation of the church is written up in the biblical book of the Acts of the Apostles, and while it’s called a mystery in the Bible, it’s only mysterious to those who don’t have it.
