Edward Alexander “Aleister” Crowley was born in 1875 in England. He was born into a family that was part of a strict sect of evangelical Christians called “The Plymouth Brethren.” Crowley’s father was a prominent member of this sect. He was a preacher who used to travel to evangelize. The Crowley family was also a wealthy family due to the fact that this same preacher was also a very successful brewer of alcohol. One can see an apparent contradiction in being an evangelist and a brewer immediately. This was one that little Aleister didn’t fail to recognize. Nevertheless, Crowley was encouraged by his father to love God and to want to grow in the Christian faith. Crowley was receptive to his father’s guidance initially. He used to love reading the Bible as a boy. He did state in his “Confessions” that he was fascinated by presentations of Satan and the Anti-Christ in the book of Revelation. Nevertheless, he continued to study the Bible. However, his father passed away when he was eleven years old. His family had placed him in a boarding school run by some members of the Plymouth Brethren. According to him, this school was supposed to be run by Christians, in that they had constant chapel services, and a Rev. Champney was the administrator of the school. However, Crowley documented that the school was dominated with liars, homosexuals, and a number of other forms of wickedness that is explained in detail in Fallen Angel. This was enough to turn Aleister Crowley against Christianity for life. Even before this school attendance he admitted to having a love for “the enemies of Heaven” in the book of Revelation; and the events at the boarding school gave him the green light he sought to give himself over to Satan. When he went to College, he was already proud of his homosexual behavior, drunkenness and drug use. Then, while at Cambridge University, Aleister Crowley wrote a poem called “Alcedama-A Place to Bury Strangers In.” In that poem, Crowley wrote the following: “I was in the death struggle with self: God and Satan fought for my soul those three long hours. God conquered - now I have only one doubt left - which of the twain was God?”1 Crowley answered his own question by determining that Satan was his god. He went on to write the following: “I had been almost overwhelmed by the appalling responsibility of ensuring my own damnation and helping others to escape from Jesus.”2 Crowley’s hatred for Christianity was summed up in a book he wrote in 1910 titled “The World’s Tragedy.” In that book he made a statement that reflected his life’s goal: “That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honour they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy.”3 Aleister Crowley went on to write dozens of books on the occult, promoting black magic and all forms of spiritual wickedness, including astral projection, divination, rituals, human sacrifice, the universality of Magick, and practically anything else that would help him achieve his stated goal, the destruction of the Christian faith.
Crowley believed that Christianity was a gloomy religion, full of despair. He referred to it as the “gloom.” In their song, “The Battle of Evermore,” which is Led Zeppelin’s version of the Holy Bible’s book of Revelation’s Battle of Armageddon, Robert Plant sings, “The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom and walked the night alone.” In their 1998 Grammy Award winning song, “Most High,” Jimmy Page and Robert Plant mocked Lord Jesus Christ openly to their fans concerning his Lordship with the lyrics, “David’s Seed talks through His paper crown.” The statement reflects Christ’s identification as the Son of David. Paul wrote in Romans 1:2-3: “…concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the Seed of David according to the flesh…” The statement that Christ has a phony crown reflects their belief that Lucifer is god; as taught to them by Aleister Crowley. Another thing that Crowley emphasized to his readers was that musicians into Magick would be able to be musical mediums. When speaking of “Stairway to Heaven,” Robert Plant claimed to be a musical medium. He said the following about how he received the lyrics to the song: “‘I was just sitting there with Pagey in front of a fire at Headley Grange,’ Plant recalled. ‘Pagey had written these chords and he played them for me. I was holding a pencil and paper and for some reason, I was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out the words: “There’s a lady who’s sure, all that glitters is gold, and she’s buying a Stairway to Heaven.” I just sat there and I looked at the words and I almost leapt out of my seat.’”4 In 1998, the year of Page and Plant’s last world tour, Jimmy Page said the following (taken from the Atlantic Records website): “When we first got back together, it was so immediately apparent that the two of us were just channeling the music. That’s what we had always had, and it was so apparent that it was there. It was almost effortless.” When commenting on the production of the album with Stairway to Heaven on it, Page made the following statement in the January 2002 issue of Guitar World magazine: “If something really magical is coming through, then you follow it....We tried to take advantage of everything that was being offered to us.” In their channeling of the music and lyrics to Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin presented the concept of worshiping the male/female godhead of the Qabalah, as taught to them by Aleister Crowley, that Lucifer is the god all over the world, irrespective of the name (except Christ), and that he has a female consort in the form of light; hence the lyrics: “There walks a lady we all know, who shines white light and wants to show….” The god form that they want the fan to worship in the song is Pan the Piper, the Greek God of the forests, who again, was presented by Aleister Crowley in no uncertain terms as Lucifer the Piper, the maker of music. The Holy Bible teaches that Lord Jesus Christ created Lucifer as the celestial composer of music, with celestial pipes, in Ezekiel chapter 28. The lyrics that promote this worship of Pan, in conjunction with the mentioning of spiritual regeneration (spiritual rebirth – born again Satanism) are as follows: “And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune, then the Piper will lead us to Reason. And a new day will dawn for those who stand long, and the forests will echo with laughter.” As is presented in Fallen Angel in several examples, Aleister Crowley (and Eliphas Levi before him) presented the word “Reason” as meaning the absolute truth. The lyrics tell the student of Aleister Crowley that if people seek the “tune,” the music’s hidden message, then Lucifer will lead them to absolute truth. This in turn will cause a new day to dawn (spiritual rebirth) which will cause the forests to echo with laughter. Ritchie Yorke, a personal friend of the band, wrote about this spiritual rebirth in his book, “Led Zeppelin – The Definitive Biography”: “The appeal of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ as a musical piece is self-evident: its lyrics seemed to embody the individual’s prevailing quest for a spiritual rebirth.”5 In his biography of Led Zeppelin, “Hammer of the Gods – The Led Zeppelin Saga,” Steven Davis also wrote of the spiritual regeneration implicit in the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven: “With its starkly pagan imagery of trees and brooks, pipers and the May Queen, shining white light and the forest echoing with laughter, ‘Stairway to Heaven’ seemed like an invitation to abandon the new traditions and follow the old gods. It expressed an ineffable yearning for spiritual transformation deep in the hearts of the generation for which it was intended. In time, it became their anthem.”6 Aleister Crowley wrote something identical to what Davis wrote in his Occult Encyclopedia of Initiation, “The Equinox”: “‘Arcadia, night, a cloud, Pan, and the moon.’ What words to conjure with, what five shouts to slay the five senses, and set a leaping flame of emerald and silver dancing about us as we yell them forth under the oaks and over the rocks and myrtle of the hill - side. ‘Bruised to the breast of Pan’ - let us flee church, and chapel, and meeting room; let us abandon this mantle of order, and leap back to the heaths, and the marshes, and the hills; back to the woods, and the glades of night! Back to the old gods, and the ruddy lips of Pan!…till the glades thrill as with the music of syrinx and sistrum, and our souls are rent asunder on the flaming horns of Pan.”7
The worship of Lucifer, in the form of Pan, was a theme through all of Aleister Crowley’s writings. Jimmy Page has always been an open student of Crowley the Black Magician, and Led Zeppelin was his band. Following the teachings of Crowley, Jimmy Page and company were successful in placing his doctrines in many of their songs, including “Ramble On,” “Black Dog,” “The Battle of Evermore,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “No Quarter,” “The Song Remains the Same,” “Kashmir,” “In The Light,” “Achilles Last Stand,” and “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” just to name a few. Led Zeppelin even went so far as to command their fans to sell their souls to the Devil in their concert film, “The Song Remains the Same.”
In Fallen Angel, the reader will be exposed to the entire spectrum of occult teachings presented by Aleister Crowley; combined with other renowned occult authors, to provide the truth about Led Zeppelin’s worship of, and propagation of Lucifer. The teachings are thoroughly refuted by this author, presenting the truth of the gospel, including the absolutes of truth presented in the human subconscious. This book has been written to inevitably glorify Lord Jesus Christ in the reader’s mind, especially in the heart and mind of the rock fan who needs to receive Christ as Lord and Savior. The evidence is overwhelming, yet factual, with the Word of God presented as the absolute authority for faith and practice. The objective reader, if a Christian, will be thoroughly equipped to witness to the rock culture; and the lost sinner will see and appreciate his need for salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
