MORNING STAR by mistertrece MORNING STAR by mistertrece
Aerosol spray, kleenex on canvas, 3 coffee, 2 cigarette. The lyrics of this song is a good example of all i want to show with this work [link]

Lucifer is another name for Satan. This is because people interpret a passage in the Book of Isaiah of the Bible in a certain way. Lucifer is Latin. It is made of two parts, lux-lucis (light) and ferre (to bring). There are two mentions of Lucifer in the Latin Vulgate. It is used to refer to the morning star, the planet Venus that appears at dawn: once in 2 Peter 1:19 to translate the Greek word "Φωσφόρος" (Phosphoros), which has exactly the same literal meaning of "Light-Bringer" that "Lucifer" has in Latin; and once in Isaiah 14:12 to translate "הילל" (Hêlēl), which also means "Morning Star".

Lucifer is "the morning star," the "light bearer," and consort of the Queen of Heaven. His star is Venus, which is, also, associated with Venus the goddess of love and Eros the god of love.

In, Charles Godfrey Leland's, "Gospel of Aradia," Lucifer is the brother of Diana and the father of the strega goddess Aradia. Diana was, also, known as Lucifera.

In Judeo-Christian mythology, Lucifer is confounded with a Cananite god who struggles against the tyrannical creator "god" and serves as an advocate for mankind that we might possess the knowledge and wisdom of the gods. Later, the Christians further confound Lucifer with Satan (in this case, a man named Helel, a Babylonian King who was an enemy to the Jews) in the King James Version of the Bible. Consequently, modern Christians commonly confuse Lucifer with their Satan, however, Satan to Christians is anyone they don't like or who represents some idea they don't agree with. The term, "Satan," simply means adversary.

The Christian Gnostics, regarded as heretical by the early Church of Rome, say Lucifer as either a brother of god or as his elder son who was cast out of heaven. It is interesting to note that the Christian Jesus says he, too, is "the light."

Lucifer may be seen as Prometheus, the Greek Titan and trickster who stole fire, which symbolizes illumination or knowledge, to give to mankind so that they would be equal to the gods. He was punished by Zeus for his disobedience. Like Lucifer, he is seen as a champion of humanity against the tyranny of a god who wants to have all of the glory for himself and keep his creation (mankind) in bondage and ignorance.

Is a common mistake to think satanism, worshiping Satan and followers of Lucifer, or luciferianism are the same.

Luciferianism is not a religion; rather, it is the antithesis of religion. There is no set canon of accepted belief or doctrine in Luciferianism. Most Luciferians are atheists, who do not acknowledge any god or supreme being. Many Luciferians, but not all, practice witchcraft, which is most often regarded as an esoteric science and not a religion.

Luciferianism is the pursuit of illumination and knowledge. Most Luciferians are avid readers and researchers.

Generally, Luciferianism is not a practice like other types of spiritual "paths;" more often it is simply a philosophy. Although, Lucifer may, also, be regarded as a living spirit. It is possible to hold some aspect of both of these perspectives since there is, throughout the world, a primeval creative intelligence that corresponds with Lucifer. Generally, Lucifer is not worshiped in the sense that this term would be understood by Christians who have a concept of an exalted creator "God" who demands worship, servitude and deference. Lucifer is the antithesis of these ideas. Although, the spirit of Lucifer may be invoked.

The concept of Lucifer inspires to dig deeper into life's mysteries to discover the truth about the nature of the world, both physically and metaphysically. To be a Luciferian is to adopt the mental attitude of seeking enlightenment. Lucifer is the inspirational muse of artists, writers, inventors, scholars and researchers. Luciferianism is a humanistic philosophy. Luciferians seek the betterment of mankind and are on a constant search for more knowledge and wisdom.

Some Luciferians are Satanists, but not all because there are many different varieties of Satanists, as well. The relationship between Satan and Lucifer in worldwide history is complicated. Usually, when a group of people regard Luciferian entities as "Satan" it is because they see them as a rival for their monotheistic god.

Lucifer is an ancient pre-Christian and pagan spirit who has counterparts in throughout the world. Most Luciferians regard themselves as pagans, although, they are not necessarily neo-pagans. The term "neo-pagan" confuses the matter because Luciferian philosophy does not fit into the paradigm of re-creationist pagan traditions. Many Luciferians avoid applying the term "pagan" to themselves because this often arouses a great deal of anger and hostility among neo-pagans.

So forget about sacrifice virgins at midnight, Black Metal and black clothes, is not about to be against Christians or Catholics or GOD. And to think EVIL = Luciferian. If you still thinking it, read the text again. And again.

Anyway, i think all religions and every philosophy are good if is not about to start wars, hate, envy, greed and divide people.

Thank you so much, specially for to read it all, you know, i always put a text and a song on my works, i try to show a concept, no only a image, and when people take their time and read it listening the music, then it makes sense to my art.

And if after to do it, write an interesting comment, then it makes me happy, because is all i wanted since i started to paint. So thank you. I think we can talk about it for hours. I found it all into the punk scene, the same way of thinking, the same spirit of rebellion... and a lot of things. Is a good example of how people need to label their lifes. I believe in individuality, i mean.. be yourself, think for yourself, live under your own "rules" or values.... Religions were the old slavery. Now still alive, but tehcnology is the new GOD. People live under the shadow of the binary codes. Even the new generations talk with images, not with sentences. So maybe its time to look back and learn of the ancient cultures.

You know, in Peru, before the Spanish conquerors burned and destroyed it all, there was a mysterious tribe who wrote an universal language on stone. They create an informatic application without to know a shit about computers. In fact, the scientifics call it the language of God. It means when you write in english, that code translate it.... to every single fucking language you choose. 

So is one of the millions of examples of how awesome and powerful human race is. Maybe if weŽll use all our potential, mind, body... soul... maybe weŽre the gods, but we forget it all.

Is something that fascinate me since i was a kid. The greeks made the first robots, they can move with vapor. So... I know so well thereŽs something more after life ( i had experiencies all my life) but to think about the figure of a God on popular religions are... hard to believe. Specially when, for example, the Christian took a lot of stories from ancient Egypt ( the ressurection three days after to be dead, a virgin who had a child, ,the figure of the HOLY Spirit...) and a lot of things like that. 

I think we dont have the intellect ( now) for to understand the concept of God. I mean, we know a 1% of the Universe or a 20% of our mind, so... how the fuck we can be so arrogant to try to understand it.

Wow my apologies for the long answer. Is a pleasure for me to talk with somebody who understand.

Basically everything you mentioned in the description. It was always hard for me to villainize him. His actions and reactions seemed perfectly normal to me... so it was a bit of a bone of contention when I was still under Catholic influence from my upbringing. However, humans always humanize things, and essentially convey things in their image with what they understand as themselves... feelings, thought processes, what is moral and amoral.
I also thoroughly enjoy how religious matter always seem to have a predecessor, are borrowed from an older notion, goddess/god, "lesson"/story, etc. Something before is borrowed and used, manipulated to fit how people want, to get what they want. What is evil and malevolent to one, feels familiar and safe to another. It's just always interesting... humans and how they perceive.

No dobut about it. Religions, the early religions, are so different from now. I mean, the bible changed so many time, remakes from the new Popes, for their own gain, what more can i say?. If the bible is the GODŽs word, how the fuck you can change it every 100 years?.

You said it all. Is not about that usual satanic pop image, to listen metal, wear a 666 ( even the 666 is not satanic) the inverted cross ( another mistake, is the most humble cristian symbol) etc etc is more than meets the eye. Even is more a phylosophy than a religion.

Well i dont want to bore you :D I can speak of that things for ours!!! Thank you so much for your words, you are really COOL.
