1. I TOLD YOU ABOUT THE TIME MY MOTHER & I WALKED AROUND THAT HINDU TEMPLE ON A CLIFF THERE NEAR LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA. All kinds of Satanic worship went on there, worshipping devil-gods & stuff like the TMs worship, the Transcendental Meditators. Well‚ that's what the Hindus are like, sad to say, they worship so many gods there's no limit! They worship an almost infinite pantheon of gods & devils & demons, & it is Satanic!
2. IF YOU WONDER WHY THEY'RE ALWAYS HAVING SO MUCH TROUBLE & VIOLENCE & EVERYTHING IN INDIA, IT'S BECAUSE OF THOSE HORRIBLE RELIGIONS THEY HAVE!—And why there's so much poverty. They worship cows, flies‚ insects, anything living. They let these big sacred white cows, great Brahma bulls & cows, just have anything they want. The people get out of their way & the cows live like kings! They can go in & trample down their grain fields, eat all the food & everything & they won't touch'm—that is, except the Muslims. They've got enough Muslims in India, thank God, to keep them a little bit sane. They've got slaughterhouses & they eat meat‚ but only clean meat like the Jews & like us.
3. BUT THE HINDUS WON'T EAT ANY KIND OF MEAT, they're strictly vegetarian, because they're afraid if they kill an animal or something they might be killing their grandfather or their great great grandmother who's come back in the form of an ox or a mosquito or a fly. They won't even shoo a fly off their face for fear they'll trouble their great ancestor who might be there visiting them. Isn't that the craziest thing you ever heard?
4. INSTEAD OF GOING TO HEAVEN LIKE WE DO, THEY THINK WHEN YOU DIE THAT YOUR SPIRIT IS REBORN IN THE FORM OF SOME ANIMAL or some mosquito or lizard or snake, depending on how badly you lived. If you were a bad boy or bad girl, they think you come back in the form of some evil creature like snakes, lizards, gila monsters, mosquitoes, frogs & things like that. But if you were very good, then you might be allowed to come back in the form of some good animal like the sacred cow, the white Brahma bull, or dogs & cats, pets & things that really get a lot of attention & are well-cared-for, maybe even a chicken.—Especially since you'd be amongst Hindus & you wouldn't get eaten!
5. AND IF YOU WERE VERY VERY GOOD, ALMOST A SAINT, you might be allowed to come back in human form again like one of the great teachers or gurus or devis. A devi is one of the great Hindu teachers who they treat almost like a god, & he's just one letter short of being the Devil! That's the way the Hindus are.
6. SO MY MOTHER & I WALKED AROUND THAT HINDU TEMPLE & SHE CURSED IT‚ SO I CURSED IT TOO. In those days I did whatever my Mother did‚ because she was my saint. The Hindus get to where they actually worship their teachers & worship their devis & great minds, etc., & in so doing, what they're really doing is worshipping the Devil, because usually their teachers are demon-possessed. They have a powerful spirit of some kind that can help them even do miracles.
7. I TOLD YOU ABOUT THE KIND THAT CAN SIT CROSS-LEGGED ON THE FLOOR & THEN FLOAT UP IN THAT POSITION TILL THEIR HEADS TOUCH THE CEILING‚ THEN FLOAT BACK DOWN AGAIN! My Grandfather saw this happen in India when he was there. The yogi threw up about a 25-foot–long rope, big heavy rope—it's even hard to throw a rope up like that—& it stood straight up in the air with nobody holding it!—Except some demon up there probably. Then he'd have his little helper, a little boy about one of your sizes here, climb up the rope to show that it still was strong enough to hold this little boy up even though it wasn't attached to anything that they could see.—But probably some big powerful demon was up there hanging on to it! It actually happened! This is a well-known trick they do.
8. AND THIS LEVITATION, THIS FLOATING BUSINESS, IS VERY WELL KNOWN. They try to teach it to all the TMers & they're supposed to try it. They fold up their legs & hop around on pillows & stuff, they get the hops, & that's supposed to be doing it. But of course they don't get very far because they're not well enough possessed by a powerful enough demon yet to go floating around. But the real outstanding yogis can do it. Yogi is the name of the man, yoga is the system, one of the regimens of Hinduism, & they actually can do tricks like that.
9. YOU SAY, "WELL, WHY DOESN'T THE LORD HELP US TO DO THINGS LIKE THAT?" I asked the Lord that once upon a time about Uri Gellar. I said, "Lord, if I'm supposed to be such a great Prophet & all that they say I am & You say I am, why can't I bend spoons & forks like he does, & clock hands? I'd be famous, on television!"—That's before I was very famous, when I was in London. I thought it would help me get on television too & I could tell the World what we've got to say! I don't know if it was the Lord or dear Abrahim who virtually laughed at me & said, "These are tricks of little children!" Undoubtedly what he meant‚ & what we took it to mean, was it was little child spirits who were doing these tricks & bending spoons & bending things for Uri Gellar. Well, he claimed to believe in God, & a lot of people claim to believe in God, but what god? The god of this World is the Devil! So it depends on what God you believe in.
10. I THOUGHT IT WAS A PRETTY GOOD DEMONSTRATION OF THE SUPERNATURAL‚ ANYWAY, & ought to help people believe in the spiritual at least, in the unseen. And if people can be brought to where they can believe in the unseen & the supernatural & the spiritual, then they're at least a step toward believing in spiritual Truth, the real Truth & the real spiritual & God & His Truth & His Word, etc. Even if you can get people to believe in the Devil, then they almost have to believe there's also a God! A lot of our people were even involved in the occult & in witchcraft & all that sort of thing & had LSD spirit trips into the spiritual & could see like you see in the Spirit World, could see right through people & see what their personality was like!
11. IT'S KIND OF LIKE THAT EXPERIENCE I HAD ON THE STREET IN HAIFA with all those "nice" people, all those "lovely" Jews I was living with. All of a sudden the Lord let me see them as they really were, like devils & demons & monsters! (See No.66.) How many of you ever took LSD? Isn't that kind of the way some of your LSD trips were? But some of you had good trips, right? How many ever had a good trip on LSD?—Most of you‚ the same ones. How many of you had bad trips on LSD?—Very few. See how the Lord was protecting you?—And those were probably just warnings. They were actually trips into the spiritual where you saw what people were really like or you saw through'm or you felt things. Some people claim they saw Heaven or God or the Devil or even Jesus etc. in the spiritual.
12. LSD IS A DRUG, CHILDREN. I can't say the long word that those three initials stand for—any volunteers? Here you were taking it & you don't even know what the name was! Well, they call it LSD for short. If you put LSD on the back of a stamp, which some people did, & you just licked the stamp, you had a spirit trip!—Or they'd sprinkle your hamburger with it or put it in cookies & stuff like that so people wouldn't even know they were going to have'm. They'd have a party & they knew they had some guests who had never taken LSD & wouldn't want to take drugs & didn't know anything about'm, & they'd deceive'm by actually putting this drug into their food or drinks so they'd all have a big trip & go off the deep end!
13. DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOING OFF THE DEEP END IS? (David: Falling off into the deep end of the water.)—Yes, & when you fall off into the deep end, in most pools you're over your head. So on LSD they fell off the deep end & they got in over their heads—at least over where their head usually was!—Ha! They even called some of those drug–takers "heads"! I know a little bit of hippie language, I lived with them for awhile!
14. SO THE HINDUS REALLY ARE AN ODD PEOPLE, WORSHIPPING EVIL SPIRITS & DEMONS. Of course they don't call them evil spirits & demons, they call them gods & goddesses & their grandmother or their great grandfather or someone if they think they've had a visit from them. Of course, we know that's possible to have a visit, but my Grandfather is not going to come along in the form of a mosquito & sting me, or in the form of a snake & bite me! That's horrible!
15. —ALTHOUGH MY FATHER ONCE SUGGESTED, "WHO KNOWS? MAYBE THAT'S SOME EVIL PEOPLES' PUNISHMENT, that in the Next World they have to assume the form of animals that they resembled in this life." They call it a metamorphosis where you change your appearance into that of evil beasts or snakes or lizards or something like that, the kind of person they were. Jesus called people by several bestial names, foxes & things like that. Maybe that's what King Herod will look like wherever he's going to go—which must be Hell considering all the horrible things he did. Jesus called him "that old fox." (Luk.13:32) So my Dad had the feeling that maybe that's going to be part of the punishment of the sinners & the vilest, most evil people.
16. PEOPLE THAT HAVE DRUG TRIPS OR SPIRIT TRIPS & NIGHTMARES OFTEN SEE HORRIBLE CREATURES LIKE THAT, & WHO ARE THEY?—They've got to be demons & devils, & they were once Angels or they were once people. It could be that God makes those people assume the form of the kind of animal they were like. He calls some people swine. Boy, I've seen a lot of big fat swine over in the U.S.A., haven't you?—Eating like pigs! I haven't hardly seen very many fat people since I left the U.S., except you have seen a few huge big monstrous fat rich men. Only the very rich can afford to ever get fat in the poor countries!
17. THE BIBLE OFTEN CHARACTERISES PEOPLE AS BEASTS, ALONG WITH THE ANTICHRIST. So it's possible, maybe so. That's just a theory‚ I can't prove it, but anyhow‚ I hope you never have any nightmares or spirit trips like that. I know you'll never take LSD or anything like that because now you're saved & you don't need drugs. You have Jesus & you have His Holy Spirit to love you & watch over you, & His Angels to keep you safely.
18. SO MOM & I CURSED THAT TEMPLE & the next day we got up, got the newspaper, & there was a picture of the thing fallen into the ocean! The whole cliff had collapsed & it fell right in the water, & the Lord left enough of it sticking out of the water so you could still tell what it was. See what can happen if you just have a little tiny bit of faith!
