The Black Panthers Of The Hawkesbury

If you go to Pastor Robin Swope's 'The Paranormal Pastor' blog you will see a story of high stangeness that occurred when we were growing up in the Hawkesbury (click here for the story). But slightly more tangible, yet equally as mysterious is the black panther phenomenon. There have been more sightings than vegemite on toast for breakfast around Grose Vale and Bowen Mt (and the surrounding area's including the Agricultural College grounds near Hobartville, adjacent to Southee Road).

The funniest story I heard was a skeptical friend who stayed at a relatives house on Christmas Eve 2004. The family talked about all the panther sightings in the street (Carters Road, Grose Vale) which was laughed off over a couple of wines. The next morning as the skeptical relatives drove home, a black cat as big as a german shepherd dog ran in front of their car just before St John of God hospital, jumped the fence into the North Richmond padddocks and took off.

There are so many stories like that, it is only a matter of time before we accept that we have a big cat population in Australia.

Nephilim in Rabbinic Legend

Taken from http://www.timelessmyths.com/mirrors/enoch.php

Enoch in the Rabbinic Legend

It was during the time of Jared, father of Enoch, that the angels, known as the Watchers came down to earth to take mortal women as wives and mate with them, and they beget monstrous children. Some of details of this can be found in the Rabbinic legend, the Haggada. Some of it resemble to the narrative found in the Book of Enoch. More detail about the Watchers and their children can be found in the book called the Book of Watchers, which formed the first part of the Pseudepigraphal Book of Enoch.

The leader of the Watchers was Shemhazai. He agreed with others to take women as wives, only if they sworn pacts to carry through this plan. Two hundred angels made the descent to Earth, at Mount Hermon. Two hundred angels were divided into group of ten, each under the leadership of chieftain or captain. Some of these fallen angels' names are revealed: Azazel, Armaros, Barakel, Kawkabel, Ezekeel, Arakiel, Samsaweel and and Seriel.

They defiled themselves on mortal women, producing monstrous children. Their children grew to be giants of three-thousand ells tall, which is approximately 3420 metres in height (11,250 feet tall). The wicked angels taught their children all sort of sorcery and arcane knowledge.

According to the Haggada (book 1, chapter 4 Punishment of the Fallen Angels), the angel Shemhazai lusted after a maiden named Istehar, however, she tricked him to reveal the Ineffable Name of God. Istehar used the Ineffable Name used to ascend, thereby escaping violation by Shemhazai. God rewarded Istehar for her pious and her chastity by commemorating her as the seven-star constellation Pleides.

In Genesis 4:22, Naamah was a daughter of Lamech and Zillah, and sister of Tubal-cain. She was a descendant of Cain, hence a Cainite. Apart from this, she was not mentioned again. In the Talmud, Genesis Rabba (27), this same Naamah was mentioned as the wife of Noah, the hero of the Flood, but according to the Book of Jubilees 4:35, Noah's wife was Emzara, the daughter of Rake'el; Rake'el being a brother of Lamech, hence she was Noah's cousin. However, the Midrash: Genesis Rabba 23, mentioned that the sister of Tubal-Cain, was the wife of Noah.

In most sources in regarding to Naamah, she was known for her great beauty; and according to the Haggada, her name means "Lovely" (Zohar 32 says that her name means "Gentleness"), though the name was used for her skills in producing sweet sounds from the cymbals. She was idol-worshipper.

According to the Haggada, Naamah was the opposite of Istehar, because the angel Shamdon had succeeded in sexual union with Naamah. Naamah's offspring was Asmodeus, a demon, instead of a giant (a Nephilim). Asmodeus appeared in the apocrypha Tobit.

According to the introduction of the Zohar, it was Naamah who first deceived and seduced the angels, not the angels seducing Naamah. Zohar 3 mentioned the angels, Aza and Azael, instead of Shamdon, they were victims of her beauty. She became mother of unknown number of demons, but there was no mention of Asmodeus. From this same chapter and passage of the Zohar, she was more than just a mortal woman. She would wander through the night and sleep with any man sleeping alone in the house during the waning of the moon, taking away their strength, like a succubus. So Naamah, like Lilith, became a demoness.

When Jared was 162, Enoch was born. Upon reaching manhood, Enoch lived alone in a cave, to avoid the wicked children (Nephilim) of the Watchers, when one day he heard a voice, appointing him as the scribe of justice. The voice told him to go to the Watchers and announced their fates and punishments for their wickedness for cohabiting with mortal women. Their offspring shall suffer for the sins of their fathers.

The giants consumed most of the food from men, before they began devouring ordinary people, and sucking their blood, like vampires.

Enoch was 65 when his son, Methuselah, was born. God had appointed Enoch as ruler and teacher. Hundred and thirty kings and princes had submitted to his dominion. He was known for his wisdom and justice. He was 243 when Adam died. There was a period of long peace while he ruled. But at this point in time, Enoch decided to retreat from the rest of mankind again.

On the last day, a giant steed arrived from heaven, to take Enoch away. After giving his final instructions to his people, he tried to leave. As he travel through the land, his people followed him. On the second day, he told them again to leave. Most obeyed, but six people continued to follow him. Enoch tried to persuade the last six people to leave him, or else they would die when he ascend to heaven. Still, they followed him, until the seventh day. A fiery chariot drawn by giant steed arrived from heaven.

The kings who obeyed Enoch to leave him, discovered the bodies of the six people who followed Enoch till the end. They seemed to have been killed by great hailstones. Enoch was taken to heaven on the same month, day and hour that he was born.

It was not the first time, Enoch was taken to heaven. Enoch had the great privilege to see every place at heavens on earth. Two angels, Samuil and Raguil, woke him, and escorted him to heaven. He was able to see each of the seven heavens and the angels who dwelled there, all the way up the throne of God in the 10th heaven. He also met the archangel, Gabriel and Michael.

Enoch was to be the scribe of God. From the book of heaven, Enoch copied down everything, filling 366 books about everything that happened in heaven and on earth. Enoch was said to have given these books to his sons.

The final time he was taken to heaven, he was transformed into an archangel, and his name was changed to Metatron. He was the prince of princes of angels.

After Enoch's disappearance, Methuselah took over the mantle of patriarch and "ruler of the earth", and was seen as a great hero in the Haggada, killing thousands of demons, who were offspring of Adam and the she-devil, Lilith; killed them all with his sword, which have the "Ineffable Name" of God etched on the blade. Methuselah captured Agrimus, the first-born of Lilith.

This Weeks Stories From Pastor Baz (25/09/09)

Forward from Bryony: Here are some experiences had by Pastor Baz. These stories remind me to listen to the following verse from the bible:
Deutoronomy 18 v 9-14 “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. 10 For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering.[a] And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, 11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you. 13 But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.”

2 Corinthians 11:14
14And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

Here's Baz's stories...

The old house that we lived in at Richmond in 1978 was pretty scary for a little kid. It was two stories, with high ceilings and a ‘secret chamber’, that I worked out was just an attic door. At night, it would creak and moan in between an incredible silent lulls in the darkness, only broken by the haze of a distant streetlight and the roar of a car up Windsor Street every couple of minutes.

One night I was asleep upstairs. I was woken up by a sensation and when I turned over I saw something I will never forget. To this day I am unsure if it was Angel or demon. It was around 8 feet tall, bright white with it’s robes blowing around it, faceless and menacing. I was terrified. Every time I recoiled from it in my bed, a hand reached out from it and pointed at me, but the apparition did not make a sound. The strangest thing was that even though my brother was in a bunk above me and my mum was in the next room, my screams did not wake them, yet I was completely awake and not dreaming. It was as if the air had become viscous and incapable of carrying sound. This went on for about five minutes before I basically passed out. The next morning, I told the story and was chastised for having a bad dream. I have never questioned the reality of this encounter.

At about the same time, my grandfather became heavily involved in the spiritualist church. Every week, the ‘congregation’ would gather inside a ‘circle of protection’ in a hall in Campbelltown and communicate with the ‘dead’. Grandad had been reading a lot of books in his search for knowledge and spirituality and this is where he had ended up in the late 1970’s. As he became more involved, he specialized in helping the ‘departed’ move on through a series of ‘exorcisms’ and ceremonies.

I found this incredibly interesting until one day Grandad played a tape of the exorcism to a group of us kids. One of my cousins had to have counseling for months afterwards and even today I can hear the sound of evil manifesting on cellophane tape, a sound unlike anything I had ever heard until I was exposed to Christian deliverance ministry. Next time I went to my grandparents, I avoided the music room unless I heard the familiar scratched sounds of one of granddads favourite post war records doing laps around the turn table.

My grandmother relayed the following story to me when I was about thirteen years old. I didn’t want to sleep for a week.

One night, my grandfather kissed grandma good night, walked out into the blackness of the Menangle night, got into his old Vauxhall and drove the five hundred metres down the dirt track from the old farmhouse to the front gate that met the highway. He was off to a night at the spiritualist Church.
Grandma was used to being left alone on these nights and although the closest neighbours house lights were hundreds of metres away over paddock and barbed wire fences, she did not feel ill at ease.

As she read herself to sleep, her eyes became heavy and she lay her head back on her pillow. Above her she noticed a black form on the wall. She thought it was a shadow, until it reached out from the wall, put it’s inky black hands around her throat and began to tighten it’s grip. She was gasping for air, and with a mind full of fear did the only thing she could think of!!

“I screamed out ‘in the name of Jesus leave me alone’” Grandma told me, while I clenched my cup of tea in my now sweaty teenage hand “And it just disappeared. It never came back again. But I know where it came from. It came home with your grandfather from the church he was involved in”.

Not long afterwards I was going on a long drive to a camping ground with my mum. I asked her if these sorts of things were real.

“When we were about sixteen” mum answered “We were playing with a Ouija board. A whole group of us. It was pretty harmless until we asked it a couple of serious questions. The glass on the board spun around and around by itself until it flung itself off the board, against the wall and smashed. It scared me so much we never played with anything like it again”.

Make that two weeks I didn’t want to sleep for.

Cops get paranormal help...

A new book is being released with true stories of the paranormal from people in the police force.

One tale from it is this:

The cop behind the wheel that Detroit night in 1992 told Sgt. Dean that when he was pinned down by the submachine gun fire, he faced a terrible choice: stay in the squad car and get shot, or exit the car and get shot. An Uzi fires 600 rounds per minute.

The cop opened the door and claims "a golden glow" filled the car. "I heard a calm, male voice say, 'Don't worry. You're going to come out of this fine. You won't be hurt.' It felt as if a shield had been raised up in front of me." The cop stood amid a hail of bullets and emptied his gun into the suspects' vehicle. The suspects sped away, but the cop was unharmed. He later said, "I am alive today because of divine intervention."

The dangers of paranormal investigation

In 1984 the movie Ghostbusters came out. I was 12 years old.
My friends and I started a Ghosthunting club. My Dad, who was a scientist and a paranormalist, tried to create electronic devices to trap ghosts. We hung around at supposedly haunted places with spectroscopes and other devices, wanting to emulate the boys in jumpsuits who drove around in Ecto 1.

We were blessed that nothing ever actually happened.

Jump forward to 2009. Bookshops, TV shows, blogs....the paranormal is everywhere.
And amateur investigators are everywhere as well. A lot of people treat it like Halloween....a night of scary fun and then we put the suits away and go back to normal.

In his new book "An Exorcists Field Guide" (Available via Amazon) Pastor Robin Swope talks about the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dangers involved in performing exorcisms or in just dealing with spirits that are potentially malevolent. These are wise words from a man who has seen and dealt with his fair share of 'spiritual warfare'.

And I concur. I have one researcher that rings me in fits of despair from time to time, so low at times, so under spiritual attack that I wonder if he will make it through the night. And yet he can't let go of the investigating.

In his book "UFO MYSTERIES - A reporter seeks the truth" (Preface XIX-XXII) Curt Sutherly talks about his friend Raymond, a consumate writer and UFO investigator. As 'Raymond' move deeper into his worked, and shifted his theory from extraterrestrial to "something far more odd and complex" he started to come undone.

His stress levels soared. UFO's, hairy man beasts, even lizard men were suddenly everywhere, within driving distance of his house. Mysterious screams and sounds issued from forests (Sounds like an Episode of Paranormal State, where there was a Native American demonic spirit in the house which called out from the forest live on the show). Nocturnal lights in the sky and on the ground were spotted routinely. Unusual animal deaths, torn apart by huge hands. Conversations on phones were interrupted by strange sounds and third party voices. Three toed tracks around his home.

Raymond is quoted in the book as saying "....I am beginning to worry what might happen in or around my own home. I know of no way to shake such thoughts from my unconscious mind, of course, so I feel frustrated in my desire to stop the events short of my property line".

Eventually Ray cut all contact with researchers.

In my own family, we had the Churinga stone incident mentioned on our FB page, as well as a black shadow that had form and intent, that scratched at our front door and then walked inside my house in front of my wife and children, up the hallway and then hid behind our bed. Only my wife telling it to leave "in the name of Jesus Christ" made it dissapear.

Researching this area is not a game. Even my fellow researchers will tell you at times of my own reluctance to be involved because of the risks, to myself and to my family. But I do it for one reason. In Luke 4:18 Jesus read from a scroll the words of the prophet Isaiah, which talks about "setting the captives free", physically, spiritually and socially.
In his earthly ministry Jesus healed the sick, proclaimed the Kingdom of God was near and here, gave hope to those on the fringe and cast out unclean spirits. Those spirits knew who Jesus was and they were afraid because of his absolute power over them.

At this blog, the author and team also believe in that power to transform lives and set the captives free and continue to follow the way of Jesus Christ, to see people oppressed by unexplained phenomenon set free by the authority over the spiritual realm that Jesus Christ has.

So for anyone who wants to jump headfirst into being a paranormal researcher....count the cost first. And don't leave home without Jesus.
Simply ask Him to be Lord of your life.
And if you are personally experiencing phenomenon, we'd love to pray for you, just send us a PM to baz@kingsway.org.au

God bless you all - Baz.

Project Blue beam??

Ok, I'm not a conspiracy theorist but I keep hearing about project blue beam.

What the heck is that you might be thinking?

Firstly I found it in a book I was reading this week, secondly in the You Tube clip link I posted on the forum this week. Both are very interesting and shed light on new potential 'working hypothesis' in relation to the UFO and other paranormal phenomenon.

In a nutshell, Project Bluebeam suggests that we are and will continue be exposed to auditory and visual 'effects' to shift us from one paradigm to another to achieve an agenda by secret organsiations that run the world behind the scenes (disclaimer, I'm not saying I agree with that as it is espoused in many of these sites). This includes holographic images and the use of infrasound etc by satellite's to produce the effects that one experiences when seeing UFO and other phenomenon, the sights, sounds, feelings, trauma etc

My question is: What real evidence is there of this interesting position?I cut and paste the information below from a website today to highlight the 'strategy' and 'methodology' to achieve the 'desired outcomes' of the proponents of Project Blue Beam.

As a Pastor, I believe that the world is full of deception, manipulation of truth and a strategic plan to lead people away from God. That occurs everyday in every culture - in our culture you don't need UFO's you just need materialism and selfishness. I'd encourage people to be on their guard, to remain prayerful and to ask the Holy Spirit to lead us everyday. To use discernment and to test all things to see if they are of God or of satan. To pray that Jesus would protect you and your family. But I'd also encourage fact finding, references and due diligence with all research that we do.



1: The first step concerns the breakdown of all archaological knowledge. It deals with staging earthquakes at certain precise locations around the planet where supposed new "discoveries" will finally explain (for them) that the meanings of the basic doctrines of all the world`s major religions are "wrong." This falsification will be used to make the population believe that all religious doctrine has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. The falsification started with the film 2001: A Space Odessy, the TV-series STAR TREK, the STAR WARS films, E.T., all of which deal with space "invasion" and "protection". JURASSIC PARK, was to push the theory of evolution.

2: The second step deals with the gigantic space show: 3D optical holograms and sounds, laser projections of multiple holographic images in different parts of the world, each receiving a different image, according to its predetermined original national religious faith. This new "god" image will talk in all languages. As an exemple, the Soviets have manufactured the advanced computers and have programmed them with the minute psychological particles based upon their studies of the anatomy and biology of the human body, as well as their studies on the anatomy, chemistry and electricity of the humain brain. These computers have also been fed with the different languages of the world.

3: The third step deals with telepathic electronic two-way communication, where ELF(Extra Low Frequency), VLF (Very Low Frequency), and LF (Low Frequency) waves will reach the people of the earth through the insides of their brains, making each person believe that his own God is speaking to him from within his owm soul. Such rays, from satellite, are fed from the memory of computers that store much data about the human being and his languages. These rays will then interlace and interweave with the natural thinking processes to form what we call the ARTIFICIAL TALK.

4: The fourth step involves universal supernatural manifestations using electronic means. This step contains three different orientations: The first one is to make mankind believe that an alien invasion is about to occur upon every major city on the earth. This is to push each major nation into using its nuclear capability to strike back. In this manner, it would put each of these nations in a state of full disarmament before the United Nations after the false attack. The second is to make the "christian" believe that a major rapture is occurring, with a simple "played" divine imtervention of an alleged "good" alien force coming to save the good people from a brutal satanic attack. Its goal is to get rid of all significant opposition to the NEW WORLD ORDER. The third orientation is a mixture of electronic and supernatural forces. The waves (frequencies) used at that time will allow supernatural forces to travel through fiber optics cable, coaxial cable,electric and telephone lines in order to penetrate all electronic equipment and appliances that will by then all have a special microship installed. The goal of this step deals with the materialization of satanic ghosts, spectres, and poltergeists all across the globe in order to push all populations to the edge of a wave of suicide, killing and permanent psychological disorder. After that night of the THOUSAND STARS, HUMANITY IS BELIEVED TO BE READY FOR THEM TO ENTER IN A "NEW MESSIAH" TO REESTABLISH PEACE EVERYWHERE AT ANY COST, EVEN AT THE COST OF FREEDOM.
