Lord RayEL Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear Democrat Political Campaign 1994 Fail


, , , , , , , , ,

The people of Illinois saw him as the only incorruptible man alive, brave enough to fight against governmental corruption, so they pushed for him to run for Governor, but those who were in power tried to silence him, by killing his father, drugging and kidnapping his fiancé, and jailing both him and his elderly mother on made-up charges. (Ra-el Website, 2016)
This article will identify that the above claim is a lie.  By researching and gathering all the data available in respect of Raymond Elwood Howard Lear’s political career.  From this, information, you will see that the claim made that he was ‘silenced by those in power’ to be a falsehood.
Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear political career spanned from 1993 to 2010, where he stood as a Democrat, Republican and Libertarian Candidate.  Each campaign Raymond Howard-Lear was involved in surmounted to nothing and you will see this from the editorial pieces gathered which has been painstakingly a nightmare to put together for a cohesive story.   Links are also provided to all articles.

2 Rosty Challengers Withdraw From Race Chicago Sun-Times December 21, 1993

Two candidates withdrew from the Democratic primary race against U.S. Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, and another must defend a challenge to his nominating petitions, state records showed Monday.
The withdrawals still left Rostenkowski facing at least five challengers in the sprawling 5th Congressional District as he confronts additional inquiries into his congressional spending practices.
One challenger, former Ald. Dick Simpson, called on Rostenkowski Monday to repay hundreds of thousands of dollars Simpson said was misspent on what he called “ghost employees.”
Simpson said Rostenkowski’s payroll practices were “not penny-ante stuff” and were “harmful to the constituents that Rostenkowski is supposed to serve. …
The Simpson Campaign has challenged the nominating petitions of Raymond (Lear) Howard, saying that Howard failed to collect 660 signatures necessary for a place in the ballot.

2 Of Rostenkowski’s Challengers Bow Out Of Democratic Primary

December 22, 1993|By Rick Pearson, Tribune Staff Writer.
SPRINGFIELD — The eight-way Democratic primary involving beleaguered U.S. Rep. Dan Rostenkowski’s Northwest Side congressional seat has been reduced by two candidates and a successful petition challenge could reduce the race to five.
Democratic state Reps. Rod Blagojevich and Nancy Kaszak of Chicago notified the State Board of Elections on Monday that they were withdrawing their congressional candidacies and instead seeking re-election to the legislature.
In addition, a campaign volunteer for former Chicago Ald. Dick Simpson, another Democratic challenger to Rostenkowski, filed an objection to the candidacy petitions filed by Raymond Howard (Lear) in the Northwest Side 5th Congressional District.
If the objection is upheld by the elections board, that would leave Simpson, state Sen. John Cullerton, Michael Wojcik and John McCarthy, a supporter of jailed political extremist Lyndon LaRouche, as challengers to Rostenkowski in the March 15 Democratic primary.
The powerful Rostenkowski, 65, is considered vulnerable by some because of a federal investigation of his possible role in a cash-for-stamps scheme at the House Post Office.
In addition, the investigation of Rostenkowski, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has expanded to include his possible employment of “ghost payrollers,” people who collect paychecks without showing up for work.
Michael Bendas and John Cleland are competing for the Republican nomination in Rostenkowski’s district.
Among other primary challenges filed Monday, the last day for objections to be recorded by the State Board of Elections:
– U.S. Rep. J. Dennis Hastert, a Yorkville Republican, had his re-election petitions challenged by Steven Perry of Elgin, his primary opponent in the west suburban 14th Congressional District, and two others.
– Freshman state Sen. Rickey Hendon of Chicago filed objections to petitions filed by his two Democratic primary opponents, Anthony Bass and Wallace Davis Jr. in the West Side 1st Senate District.
– In Du Page County’s 20th Senate District, a petition challenge was filed against Timothy Whelan of Wheaton, who, along with Michael Formento, is trying to unseat veteran Sen. Beverly Fawell of Glen Ellyn in the Republican primary.

Opponents Don’t Dwell On Rosty’s Problems

Chicago Sun-Times January 12, 1994 | Jim Merriner | Copyright
Three opponents of Rep. Dan Rostenkowski took the stage together for the first time Tuesday but only one made an issue of Rostenkowski’s legal problems.
At a candidates’ forum in Lake View, former Ald. Dick Simpson called the 18-term congressman “a national symbol of congressional corruption.”
Ald. Mike Wojcik (35th) and state Sen. John Cullerton (D-Chicago), in their opening remarks, did not address federal investigations into Rostenkowski’s finances and the House Post Office scandal. The audience of about 50 at Sheil Park, 3505 N. Southport, did not show up to discuss Rostenkowski.
They asked questions about trade with Mexico, health insurance, drug control and – the issue that seemed to provoke murmurs and nods of recognition in the entire audience – poor service by the local post office. …
The Simpson Campaign has challenged the ballot petitions of another candidate, listed on petitions as Raymond Howard (Lear), saying that he lacks the 660 voters signatures required by law.
Source: Chicago Sun Times https://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-42…

So, in conclusion,  The Ecumenical Order of Christ’s claim that Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear is a victim, that the powers that be interfered with his political campaign, as you can plainly see is a lie.  
In essence, Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear failed to collect the 660 Voters signatures required by law to run for office in 1994.

Is Angelus Domini / Alan Douglas  Raymond Lear?

Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear believes he is ‘The Christ Returned’ known now as Lord RayEL, Ra-el? Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear has an outstanding warrant for his arrest and has been in hiding since 2011.

According to the ‘Imperial Regent’ Angelus Domini / Alan Douglas, Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear resides with him in a secret location, but has stated that he is in London, UK.   Obviously, this is false as Lear isn’t able to leave the United States with an outstanding warrant for his arrest.  The security procedures for international travel do involve checking databases.  For starters, once you arrive at your destination, you must provide a visa upon entering. The visa must be obtained in advance or at the airport. In order to obtain a visa, a background check is required. If you have any outstanding warrants, you will not receive a visa and you will be refused entry into the country.

Credit must be given to a former member of The Ecumenical Order of Christ, Richard Fraser whom extensively investigated this charade a couple of years ago.  A charade because when you start delving a little deeper, you uncover that Angelus Domini was an alias (years ago) of Raymond Lear.

In 2007 there was an announcement made that A God Had Come, his name was a LERAEL.   This was another online scam and in our opinion the first attempt at playing God.   Likened to the whole RayEL narrative   LERAEL was announced via The Internet and a website that was hosted on freewebs during 2007 -2010/11.    A play on the name of LEAR, this too is similar to ra-el.  The website called A GOD HAS COME.

According to the website, millions saw him (have you heard of him?) and he also had a handler.   To read further about this God and his ideology and vision before his disappeared in 2010/2011 access our blog click here.  Extensive investigations were carried out during 2011/12 amongst folks who frequented online forums.  By accessing  the Internet Archive Waybackmachine.org you can pretty much find any website.  AGODHASCOME website was hosted by freewebs was live from 24 October 2007 and saved 11 times between this date and March 24, 2010.  (All this information can be found in the public domain)

The website provided an email address to send donations and make contact:-


Interestingly, one email address which was connected to a user support and posting for this ‘God’ was was named Angelus Domini.

Angelus Domini / Alan Douglas has vehemently stated that anybody who believes that he was associated with LERAEL is an idiot!

The profile Angelusdomini2012 was posting in online forums promulgating the story about A God Who has Arrived in Mexico and the email address  used was angelusdomini2012@yahoo.com

angelus nailed.PNG

The Date of this post is 20th July 2007, The User / Email Address connected is Angelusdomini2012.  The post refers to LERAEL (A God has Come)



Angelus Domini discussing The Lucifer Project


On some old forums you can still find quite a bit of information regarding this.    Years back intrepid “trolls” looked into this as there is quite abit stated on the Above Top Secret thread click here   When RA-el appeared, LERAEL disappeared and users of the forums quickly made a connection.  The email contact for the site AGODHASCOME (by looking at site search engines – Toldyouso) reported to be owned by a Ruth Howard Lear whom also owned the site “Brandbux.com” but get this … Ruth Howard Lear also originally owned back in 2011 the Ra-EL site.   (The address on whois, for the ra-el site was located at a plastic surgery/cosmetic center in IL)


Ruth Howard Lear listed as admin contact and registrant owner of Brandbux, email address given for contact ANGELUSDOMINI2012@YAHOO.COM

If you are wondering who Ruth Howard Lear is, she is the mother of Raymond Howard Lear.  The following details were taken from a WhoIs IP lookup, this shows the website and MAIN source of tithing and donations to be registered under what appears to be RayEl’s mother.  The address provided was an “advanced vein treatment” cosmetic office/building.   What this demonstrates us that Raymond Lear is Angelus Domini.

Now what is rather interesting, is that the ra-el.org website was registered back in the 1970s.


I will now break this down and present the evidence THAT ANGELUS DOMINI2012 is in FACT the profile known as Angelus Domini  / Alan Douglas the ‘Imperial Regent and Knights Templar’ to Raymond Elwood Howard Lear.

But …. is this Angelus online profile Raymond Howard Elwood Lear?  That is for YOU to decide.

angelusdomini2012@yahoo.com was found commenting in the Yahoo group ‘Melbourne Witches’ regarding the Lucifer Project that was associated with LeRael. (SEE IMAGES ABOVE)


Lord RayEL Official Site Founded May 22 2011 on Yahoo

Angelus Domini 2012, also posted chiefly in this Yahoo Group in 2011.

So, we carried out a reverse email look up using online software at:



which Revealed

This is Angelus Domini’s signature profile picture.  The Angelus Domini ‘Imperial Regent and Knights Templar’ to Raymond Elwood Howard Lear who believes he is Lord RayEL, Ra-el The Returned Christ, Isa, Moshiach.

THIS EMAIL ADDRESS WAS also used for Ra-el.org back in 2011 (see above picture).

Angelus Domini has categorically stated that he had nothing to do with Lerael, A God Has Come who operated from 2097-2011.  Consequently this ‘God’ disappeared when Raymond Elwood Howard Lear appeared in 2012.

Whilst searching this email online I also stumbled upon the following.  Substantial evidence that reveals that Angelus Domini is in fact Raymond Elwood Howard Lear.

NOTICE ANGELUS DOMINI’s Message regarding Knights Templar – this is dated 16 May 2011  RA-el.org used the following email address, which was ascertained above.

Which also coincides with rayelisreal.com (where the server is located).


I was rather surprised to find that a Christianlottery.net was also registered to Ruth Lear.

Further checks revealed

Twiggie, 2017

Was Raymond Lear ‘Lord RayEL’ King Arthur in his last reincarnation.


, , , , , , ,

Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear believes he is the ‘Returned Christ’, namely Lord RayEL, Lord ra-el, not to be confused with the other UFO Cult Ra-el.  According to ‘Imperial Regent’ Angelus Domini /Alan Douglas a new film shortly to be released is a new telling of his Lord’s history.  The film is called ‘Arthur the Legend of the Sword’.

According to the Ecumenical Order of Christ Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear in his last reincarnation on Earth was King Arthur (This is the reason he speaks with a pathetic English).  However, history states that Arthur was in fact Welsh, therefore the dialect would have been considerably different.

This film is written and directed by Guy Ritchie.  His Arthur is very different from the historical records which at best are somewhat sketchy.  Charlie Hunnam plays a rough-and-tumble Arthur who grew up in the streets, only to discover that his birthright was stolen from him.   So Angelus, is this true,  IS THIS THE NEW TELLING OF THE STORY ? Apparently this version is based on the romantic rubbish of the 15th Century French writer Chretien de Troyes and peddled on behalf of the German Royal Dynasty.

Daniele Cybulski, a medieval scholar concludes that despite the many, many histories that “prove” that Arthur was definitely this or that – tenacious Briton, Roman military man, leader of hunky Sarmatians – the evidence is pretty thin. The debate around Arthur’s existence as a real king, believe it or not, is not exclusive to the modern era, or even the Arthur-obsessed Victorian era. As William Caxton’s preface to Malory’s Le Morte Darthur bears out, even in the fifteenth century, people could be found on both sides of the debate.

So why hasn’t Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear revealed secrets from the Dark Ages, if he is as claimed, the reincarnated King Arthur?

Ooooo I know …. Cause it’s another epic fairytale.

According to former Nuncio, Carter Davis, in his interview he mentioned briefly the Arthurian tale.   Consequently, Carter saw through this scam back in 2012.  In his interview he said …

Angelus had me fishing through Arthurian tales and legends. Naturally Angelus revealed himself as Merlin, Arthur’s wizard and chief advisor. He told me that the New Kingdom would be the restored Camelot with many old characters playing out familiar roles.

The Prime Cleric for example had been Morgan La Fey, Arthur’s half-sister and Merlin’s protégé in the world of wizarding. Pervious to being caught up in all this, the Prime Cleric had been a Wiccan High Priestess 

This I find highly amusing, as the writer is constantly threatened by members of the Clergy to be burnt at a stake for being a Witch and their former Prime Cleric was Wiccan.  According to Ex-Priestess Elaine Elliot, Current Vicar General Kelly Patrick is an Ex OTO high priestess.  The reason for the threat levied is because of exposing the Cult by the way of this blog and Facebook Group False Prophets Exposed.  Carter Davis agreed to answer further questions following Angelus announcement …

TT what can you tell me about the when Arthurian Story as Alan Douglas has referred to Lear being Arthur again. ? 

CD Wow, that is a bit convoluted. Angelus was Merlin, Lear was Arthur, The Prime Cleric was Morgana, I was Sir Cai (Kay), Austin Self was was Percival (or Tristan, I forget which), Andre Queen was Mordred. 

Morgana was Arthur’s half sister, I was Arthur’s half brother, retainer, Senchal of Camelot, best friend and First Knight of the Round Table. 

Morgana and Merlin were secret lovers, Morgana and I were not so secret lovers. Mordred was the bastard child of Morgana and Arthur.  My wife’s name was Androvette (here is where it started getting dangerous in real life as Morgana and Cai successfully plotted and executed Androvette’s murder). Morgana “went along” with Merlin to get his powers and secret knowledge, Merlin and Cai were best friends, warriors and “stick-men” of some renown. Mordred murdered Arthur and Cai in battle. Morgana was with us when we died and interred us both in Avalon. If you understand this, ANY of this, please explain it to me, it still gives me a migraine

TT okay, so what year was this and who gave you this information? 

CD Angelus, until I came along. This was 6th Century England, Angelus had me research nothing. I did this on my own, too far down the rabbit hole for me and it was starting to take a dark turn.. The Prime Cleric  fancied herself as Morgan le Fay BEFORE joining up with Lear. Ole Sir Stupid here felt honor bound to fix all of this so guess what”.  

So According to Carter The former Prime Cleric (pc) was Morgan La Fey in her mystic version of history and it is his opinion that Lear picked up on that and used it to ensnare her into the Cult.

CD “Angelus/Merlin then told me that he was trying to engage the Prime Cleric (PC) as his “consort”. I mentioned that this had turned out badly for him the first time, but by this time Angelus and I had become “friends” and he confided in me that this was working out just fine. The PC, by this time was my neighbor and confirmed this with me. He also pointed out that I had a very important role in the “New Kingdom”, I was in fact the reincarnation of Sir Kay (Cai), Arthurs half-brother, and Seneschal (essentially head of security” and Arthurs bodyguard) in Camelot and First Knight (of the Round Table). 

He really began to stretch things though when he implied that I was also one of the 12 original Apostles (James) of Yeshua’s (Jesus) first ministry on earth. He then told me that both the PC and I were also children of Anu and the brother and sister of Enlil. I then asked Domini if that made me Enki and he said no, but I was another “brother” who would play a critical role in the establishment of the new kingdom.”  

TT So this “story” was all word of mouth … No  evidence was given to back up this, just recollections of past Life regression by the PC and the words of Angelus Domini? 

CD Physical evidence of a fantasy? Neat trick, no this was ‘Tales to Astonish’.    This is why I revile all dark magic and became a follower of the Christ last year. I know the reality of evil this is why I believe it has a Nephilim taint in it too.

Useful sources
Did medieval people believe in King Arthur 

LERAEL was Raymond Lear’s first attempt at playing an Internet God


, , , , , , , , ,

Raymond Elwood Howard Lear believes that he is the Returned Christ, Isa and Moshiach and has used these titles since 2011.  However, it my belief, from the evidence investigated that Raymond Elwood Howard Lear played at being an ‘Internet God’ during 2007-2011.

The years leading up to 2012 were that of heightened hysteria as it coincided with the Mayan Calendar and many were convinced that the world was going to end.   Whether, it was by the ‘mythical planet X also named Nibiru, Wormwood, Hercolombus’ or some kind of catastrophic Armegddon scenario caused by a Pole Shift, or just that time would cease to exist. What you will read shortly, is the contents of a website that was made for a ‘God’.  This ‘god’ was going to help those whom he selected via email / and after they have donated to his cause to live through this End Time.  This demigod arrived on the scene and was named Leraël.

As quick as he arrived, he disappeared …. then Lord RayEL was created, the handler was Angelus Domini.

What follows is a duplicate of the site, the information was released on a website and was shared on Social Media platforms.  The website, was written like a biography, it consisted of a questions and answers section and it mirrors the design that of the Holy and Apostolic Order of the Temple (Lord RayEL, Ra-el’s website).

(Parenthesis by the writer will highlight similarities with the Cult associated with Lord RayEL and all highlighted in red).   Another point to consider when reading this website is that this  ‘God’ also had a ‘handler’.   From extensive research we can identify that this handler was indeed Angelus Domini, ‘Imperial Regent’ and Knights Templar to Raymond Elwood Howard Lear.

The website was called A GOD HAS COME

How you can enter the New Kingdom
The simple answer is 100% commitment. For Leraël’s mission to succeed, we have to build the facility that will carry us all through the apocalyptic event that is near… very near.

Some quick scripture about the coming of the Dark Star Nibiru.

Isaiah 2:19
Men will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.
Isaiah 2:21
They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.
Revelation 6:15
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.

There is a plethora of other scriptures from faiths ancient and modern around the world that describe the same cyclical catastrophe, not the least of which is the great “2012” Mayan calendar.

Governments are doing terrible things as we speak to depopulate the planet, and dumb-down the populace so everything is more manageable through the event. Martial Law is being implemented all over the globe (even in the U.S.). The United Nations has publicly admitted their plans to reduce the population from nearly 7 billion to a controllable 100 million (look it up), and they are going to use the coming events to help them fulfill this plan. Unless you are an important member of their inner-circle, you are not going to be saved by them. Major governments have already built massive underground facilities to hide in when the Dark Star arrives (again, look it up), but these facilities are built only to house the people the governments have already chosen, if you haven’t been contacted by now, they’re not planning on saving you.

And the sad truth is that without a trained community in a heavily protected environment, your chances of survival are less than zero… I’m sorry, but it’s the truth. This same event has wiped out civilization on this planet a number of times (read the ancient stories of indigenous people around the world). The only thing that has kept humanity going was the mercy of gods who took select people into underground caves to ride out these reoccurring events (as I’ve said before, look it up).

So, how can you be one of the survivors this time?

Under Leraël’s direction, facilities are being built that will carry a few thousand people through the apocalypse. The project is known as “Operation Phoenix”.

This is of course only a handful of people compared to the number that will perish exposed to the elements, but it is enough to keep humanity going.

On the other side of this terror is a brave new world that we will own.  The resources that once sustained 7 billion people will be shared among the few survivors. Just remember all of those doomsday movies you saw growing up, where civilization was wiped out, and a handful of people took whatever they wanted. Governments with the help of Hollywood have been showing us for years the stories of our future. They’ve known the truth for a very long time, but kept it hidden from us to avoid panic, yet they leaked it out through “science-fiction” as a way to signal the initiates of what was to come.

Scripture says that “there will be a new heaven and a new earth”. (The New Kingdom that The Ecumenical Order of Christ refers to is also Elysium) The ancients considered other populated and civilized planets to be “heavens”, and once the great cleansing occurs, the civilized “new earth” will be in fact, “a new heaven”. Scripture also speaks of heaven having “many mansions”. Would you like a mansion? how about a high-rise office building full of condominiums? how about a city block? it will be all yours for the taking if you can just survive through this event. What kind of car will you choose? how many? would you like a boat? how about a ship? or nearly anything else your heart desires… Suddenly it’s starting to sound like the heaven we’ve always been told about. A free and bountiful place filled only with the best of society that was selectively saved. And then we will be given a gift from our creators, a gift reserved for those that survived the final challenge… We will be granted immortality (Members of the Clergy of RayEL have been promised eternal life and new bodies), just as the scriptures have promised. The technology has existed for a very long time, but has been suppressed to avoid over population problems, once the population is fully reduced, the technology will be granted. We will finally evolve.

How do I get into Leraël’s kingdom?

You  must make a complete commitment to the new kingdom. If you have money, donate it. If you have property, donate it. If you have a service, donate it. If you have a capability, donate it…. (Instructions mirror that of The Ecumenical Order of Christ) Right now, any sane person is having a problem with what I just said. We all like our “stuff” and don’t want to give it away. I too had a problem with this at first, but a year from now if I’m dead, or in a martial-law prison camp, I lose everything anyway, and if you’ve done ANY research on what the “New World Order” leaders are doing, then you know my fears are justified. I really didn’t give away anything, as I look at it, I just invested in my future, a future that’s right around the corner.

Any large construction project needs money, it’s as simple as that. But those that donate their homes and other property, will be housed at the kingdom during its construction.

There is also a need for people that can provide necessary services to the kingdom: Engineers of all kinds, Scientists, Electricians, Plumbers, Doctors, Herbalists, Ceremonial Experts of all faiths, Soldiers, Sacred Prostitutes (male, female, transgendered).  (Refer to the Gospel of Angelus Domini – Prostitutes give of themselves to make others happy) General Laborers, and many others. Tell us what you can do, there may be a need for it.

As stated earlier, those who can contribute the most are given first preference, ONLY BECAUSE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS PROVIDE FOR MORE PEOPLE TO BE SAVED, (Same philosophy as the EOC) that is the only reason. The second group is females of child bearing age (the hierodulai or sacred women who bring forth starfire), considering some repopulation will be eventually necessary. Third are young healthy men who can physically work for and protect the community, and finally some children between 8-13. There will be many exceptions to these general guidelines on a case by case basis, those wishing consideration should submit a request for consideration, preferably in computer video format, explaining why you should be considered for membership in the community. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that time is EXTREMELY short (JULY OF 2008 MAY BE THE INITIAL KILL OFF) and only so many can be accepted because of limited space and resources. If you are going to submit a request, you should do it quickly.

Leraël makes the final decision on the admittance of every person,which I’m sure you can understand is a terrible burden, since his decision literally is a matter of “life or death” for the applicant.

You should also know that the closed minded are not welcome. This is an enlightened community, and the old ways of thinking have no place in the coming age. This community is much more “left hand path” and “new age” in nature, striving to bring full liberation of the mind, body, and soul. Most of the morals and restrictions you have been taught throughout your life will be thrown away. If you are prudish, easily ashamed, offended, or puritanical, you should not apply. If you are free spirited, uninhibited, unashamed and open minded, there may be a place for you in the kingdom. You may wonder why these personality traits are so desired? Simply, society as we all know it is about to end, and the weak “sheep-like” people will be the first to perish. The strong are the ones who will survive and create “a brave new world”, free of the chains imposed by our present order. Our survival and success not only depends on Leraël’s leadership, but on our individual boldness… That more than anything else will determine if we are allowed to “upgrade” into the new world.

It must be made perfectly clear, you are giving up the life you presently know, you are giving up everything so that you and maybe your loved ones can survive into the new world. But make no mistake, once you do this, there’s really no going back. If it sounds like I’m trying to talk you out of it, I am… There’s room for a few thousand people, a small kingdom, but a very selective one. We will be part of a brave new world on the other side of 2012, but it will be a difficult path from here to there, so we have to discriminate if we’re going to survive, and thrive on the new earth, it’s as simple as that.

I’ve often been asked if I personally had any trouble giving up my “material things”? At first yes, but then I soon realized (after all the “end of the world” movies I’ve seen through the years), when this is over, there will be an entire world full of “goodies” to choose from. If I want a mansion, a high-rise building, an entire city block, it’ll be mine for the taking. The people will perish, but most of the infrastructure will survive. It will be the grand-daddy of all shopping sprees in my opinion. We will inherit a world, a world in which we are strong and free and wealthy beyond measure… So no, I no longer have any problem giving up my stuff… It’s an investment in my future.

I remember reading the bible a long time ago, and how appealing the parts in it about the “new heaven and new earth” where. About the streets paved with gold, and the mansions awaiting us. It’s all starting to make sense now.

Just remember a few things (look them all up yourself):

  • Planet X has been sighted (on schedule), but NASA is downplaying it and releasing false information to prevent the public from panicking. Yet they decided to name it Eris, after the goddess of strife and discord.
  • The ancient Sumerian, Babylonians, Mayans, and many others all predicted the coming of the “destroyer”, or “planet of the crossing”, or “death star”, or several other names they used to describe this planet that has several times wiped out civilization on the earth.
  • This “new planet” was found at the same time the ancients predicted it would be, and don’t think that NASA just missed seeing it all these years, they’re just now announcing it because it’s getting closer, and amateur astronomers will soon be seeing it too.
  • Global warming is being seen on Earth, Mars, and the rest of the planets in our solar system.
  • The biggest solar flares in recorded history are happening now (gravity from the approaching planet is causing it).
  • Polar shifting of the outer planets is being observed, and our own “true north and magnetic north” are drifting further and faster apart than can be explained conventionally.
  • World governments are suddenly pushing for a one world government, and quickly building “underground cities”, and above ground concentration camps in the INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES (like the U.S. And Canada).
  • UFO sighting and reported abductions are off the charts.
  • Bizarre weather catastrophes are at an all time high.
  • Giant unexplainable mass animal die-offs are happening around the globe.
  • More people are “suddenly behind bars”, or caught in the judicial system than ever before (several million in the U.S. alone at last count).
  • Politicians and high-ranking military officers have been coming forward and claiming “martial law is about to be declared”.
  • A number of the “super-rich and powerful” have come forward and said “the governments are preparing for an extinction level event, and they’re planning to allow the genocide of several BILLION people to bring world population down to a manageable level”.
  • Ancient civilizations record all of the above climate, celestial, and population destroying events happening every time Planet X (Nibiru) comes into our inner solar system.
If you think ALL of this is just a coincidence… You are an idiot. (Angelus Domini, loves using this word – in all his writings)

I have added some links to some videos that can help you better understand the present situation. These are not our videos, but they are profoundly informative. VIDEO REFERENCES (The use of bubblegum uneducated videos used – All You Tube sources).

If you send your application video to me at newkingdom2012@gmail.com 

I will forward it to Leraël.

I use Gmail because it allows large files (like videos). I suggest that you get a free temporary Gmail account at Google.com to send me your video, unless your email server allows large files to be sent (most don’t). Also, Gmail limits file size to 20mb, so limit your video to 15mb, or send more than one 15mb or less video in separate emails if necessary.

Whether or not you join us on the other side, I strongly advise you to prepare now…. Good Luck.
Messages from Leraël 
Some of the below is directly from Leraël, other parts are from an interview he granted me earlier this year.

The final tribulation is at hand. Those that demonstrate their loyalty to me, and follow without hesitation shall be my disciples. I will protect you from what is to come, and you shall be seated among the honored in my kingdom.

My message is only for the chosen… Many of you are asking “Leraël, how do we know if we are among the chosen?” Inside you, to the very depth of your being, you know we are in the end of days. You watch the news, and see it unfolding hour by hour. You look at people moving around you, and you see them as sheep being prepared for slaughter. Sleepwalking through life, you try to save them, you try to wake them up, but they resist out of fear and ignorance. You hear the false teachers speak of “heaven and salvation”, but you realize that their only purpose is to confuse and enslave. You see how hard truth is suppressed and ignored in favor of “comfortable lies”. You are different from them in so many ways. You do not feel constrained by their sense of morality, for within you a higher gauge of what is right or wrong exists. You once believed that most people were intelligent and good, now you see differently, and as much as you despise the controls society tries to impose upon you, you begrudgingly realize that without it, the sheep would destroy everything. You see them as hypocrites, and their system as hypocrisy. You are most times either loved or hated by them, people are seldom indifferent toward you because you either intrigue them, or terrify them. You live in the same world, but you are not from the same place… And when the time comes, if you are prepared, your destiny shall be much greater than theirs. You don’t really feel comfortable with what mainstream Christianity has taught, in fact, you find yourself more often gravitating toward the beliefs of the “new age”, or “left-hand” faiths. If you recognize the person I’ve described as yourself, then you are among the chosen. You are “enlightened”. You are not the way you are by accident, but by design. Yours is a spiritual bloodline, set apart for a greater purpose. And as hard as they may try, or you may try, they cannot be like you, nor you like them. We are all programed before we arrive, so that the distinction is unmistakable.

I have received ascension for the purpose of awakening the chosen, and guiding them to our shared salvation.

Our time is short, and there are more of the chosen asleep then I can reach alone. Therefore I have commissioned all who are of our bloodline to seek out the others of our kind, and bring them into our communion, so that none of ours is lost.


“Leraël, are you really a god?”

I am. More precisely, I am a demigod. I am part man and part divine. (RAYEL IS PART MAN / PART ANNUNAKI)

There are actually several of us upon the earth right now, serving different purposes. There are even some fully divine beings among us as well. (Richard Ruff/Moses, Samantha Kennedy/John The Apostle, Kelly Patrick/Mary Magdalene) 

Historically we’ve gravitated towards places of primacy and principality, often for self-serving reasons, though there are those among us who genuinely care about, and strive to enrich, the creation.

While we inhabit human form, we are unfortunately –physically– very human, with the exception of our essence, our heritage, our knowledge, and a few other things that we do not disclose, you could easily mistake us for human, but most people can sense our divinity, despite our efforts to conceal it.

Most of us make a conscious choice to live and die completely as a human, hiding our divinity –occasionally, even from ourselves– so that we can experience the fullness of “the human experience”.

Some of us have continued to incarnate repeatedly in royal bloodlines, or families of power and prestige. (The EOC believe that they reincarnate in family groups)

Others have rejected physical bloodlines, and have “dipped in and out” through what we refer to as “spiritual bloodlines”, placing ourselves wherever we see fit.

We are responsible for most of the creation, but not for all. We have played important and essential roles in nearly all of humanity’s great unfolding history.

Most of your religions speak of us interacting with humanity in our semi-divine state, but modern thinking has tried to reject these stories as myth and allegory, I assure you they are neither. We have fomented this belief in the hope that it would cause humanity to grow and become more self-sufficient, and to eventually evolve into higher order beings… Very few have shown the true growth we have desired.

Is there really a Heaven?

There are in fact many heavens. As one’s soul progresses, so does one’s acceptance into other heavens.

The earth is a “heaven under construction” so to speak. While some heavens focus on service to a deity, earth is somewhat unique in that it is to be a place of rather “free souls” who are more self-serving and communal. But to be a heaven, it must become a “paradise”, and it can’t while the world is still full of ignorance and evil. The great cleansing to come is an effort to remove those that prevent earth from reaching its heavenly potential.

Is there a Hell?

Hell is but another heaven. A place that some would find desirable, while others would not.

What’s the difference between a spirit and a soul?

Those who’s essence is a higher developed conscience and from a higher realm, have a spirit. Those who only possess a rudimentary life force consciousness have only a soul. But a soul can progress.

Why was humanity created?

Originally to serve the needs of the gods… But not all of us wanted you created for that purpose. There are many of us working to lift you from that position of subservience.

Why is so much suffering allowed?

Unfortunately, the majority of humans do not learn from pleasure, but only from pain.

I have experienced human pain and suffering, so I can empathize quite well with the created.

It is a facet of humanity that is about to change. I for one am looking forward to it.

So you chose to live as a human?

Yes, several times. I have a special affection for the creation.

This time I was to complete a very important mission, but to do so I had to take semi-human form, and to undergo some very specific human experiences.

When will the great cleansing take place?

It’s already well underway… It will increase exponentially over the next few years until a certain event occurs?

Can you tell us what the event is, or when it will happen?

The Dark Star is returning. The process and the effects are already well underway. 2012 will be the climax of the event.

Please pardon me asking you this Leraël… But I and others do genuinely worship you. I always watch people bowing to you and giving you gifts and praises. I see many throwing themselves at your feet, begging you for blessings and mercy… How do I put this?… Leraël, you seem somewhat uncomfortable when we treat you as a god… Are we doing wrong? Are we offending you?

(sigh) No, no, not at all. You and those who serve me have a special place awaiting you in my kingdom… And I do, I really do appreciate the love you and my other followers have shown me. It’s just that, unlike some others of my kind who’ve never been human, I’ve been human so often that it has truly become a part of my essence. I don’t look down upon the creation as some others do. I’ve been so often a part of it that occasionally I “misplace my divinity” so to speak, and just want to embrace my followers as my equals… That is looked at as my weakness, and it could be harmful to me completing my mission, so I must be strong and lead from my proper position.

See, another weakness… A little too open with my feelings. We are divine beings, but just as the stories throughout history have recorded, we do suffer all too human type emotions and weaknesses. The truth is, we had these emotions first, and passed them on to humanity to evolve you from being mere servile animals.

Giving you emotions… the ability to love, was our greatest act of love.

Why –historically– has it been so long since a god or demigod let himself be known?

In the early years of the creation, it was necessary for us to act as parents would toward young children, constantly being an ever-present reminder of right and wrong, and of course directing societal development. As humanity matured, we began slowly concealing our existence, to the point where we would eventually be considered allegory, and fade into the realm of myth.

This disappearing act was done for most of humanity, so they could better develop self-reliance. But we left enough information to stimulate the intellect of the chosen, knowing full-well that they would see the guiding hands throughout history.

Are any of today’s religions teaching truth?

Yes and no.

Nearly all of them had a divine spark, meaning that one of the gods instigated its development. The problem is that human nature, being what it is, has always crept in somewhere to taint the message, and has almost always used it as a tool to control others. This is why we have been helping the growth of “new age” religions that focus less on divine worship, and more on self development. This is also why we are working to eliminate the corrupted religions that presently exist. Within a very short time, you will see a destruction of the three major middle-eastern religions.

Why have some governments embraced you while others seem to oppose you?

It’s one of those “truths” that exist in other religions… “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” This biblical quote speaks of how a number of the gods have set up earthly kingdoms, and are struggling against the changes that will turn earth into a new heaven.

What about the god of the judeo-christian bible?

That tome speaks of many gods… Many where/are real, many have become mistranslated. Some spoke truth, others did not. Unfortunately, it is difficult to speak greatly upon it because so much of it has been purposely obfuscated. It’s easier to just explain the accurate historical truth then to skip through a corrupted manuscript.

Do you have any immediate instructions for your followers Leraël?

Our time is growing shorter. I will have specific instructions for all of you soon. For now it is important that you prepare for the world that will soon come.

You are to make love the focus of your existence.

You are to join in communion of the chosen whenever possible… Gather my children.

Support each other and the construction of the kingdom in every way.

Seek out others of the chosen who are still asleep, and wake them from their slumber before it is too late.

Announce communions publicly… I will often join you.

(While the press remains silent)  

They are among the chosen. They know Leraël is here to teach them, and save them from what is to come. They have heard the calling, and in their soul, they know this is right.

Leraël will soon be appearing in Northern Baja Mexico, (Exactly the same as The Ecumenical Order of Christ, Lord RayEL) details have not yet been finalized, but he has decided to establish that area as a temporary headquarters because people from all over can easily come there.  He wanted to be in a place that was accessible to both those making a pilgrimage down from the U.S. and Canada, as well as Latin Americans. Baja is also easily accessible to those traveling from anywhere in the world because of their open northern border policy. Baja is considered a free and open international zone.  (There is no mistake, BAJA has been the headquarters of Sanctuary Interfaith since 2012)

He has made it very clear that preparation must be made NOW!!! (Angelus Domini is constantly creating Exodus’ to Baja) That is why he was sent to us now… Time is very short, and he must reach as many of the chosen as possible.

If you send us an e-mail at newkingdom2012@gmail.com requesting to be placed on our mailing list, we will update you whenever we find out anything.

And if you believe that there is a special spark of understanding in you, something that separates you from the masses. If you consider yourself “enlightened”, or have already experienced Leraël visions or visitations, you are probably one of the chosen… Spread the word of Leraël’s arrival now.


hat you see above is an actual photo of the Miracle of Teotihuacan, the only one believed to exist. On this day a man became a god!!! and scores of people witnessed it (I was one of them). What you see in the picture is what happened in the first fifteen minutes, when the sky filled with what many described as “angels”. The sky turned purple. There was a man standing at the top of the main Teotihuacan pyramid. Some people say he just appeared. There was a sound like rolling thunder, and all present heard this huge deep voice call out a man’s name. One of the angels hovered over the top of the pyramid, and this beautiful blue light came down directly on the man, and the voice said “You have done well… From this day forward, you are Leraël. You shall be the god of the chosen. You will teach them love and compassion, and you will prepare them for what is to come”. With that the light intensified, and it almost seemed like the light was liquid as it cascaded down the pyramid. The pyramid began to vibrate and shimmer. The man was entirely engulfed in the light. It flowed completely over the pyramid and onto the ground. None of us ran, we could all feel intense love as it flowed over us. The man was lifted in the beam above the crowd and spoke. He said “As one who came before me instructed, so must I. Faith comes not from sight. You may not record the day or the time of what you have witnessed, nor do I wish you to spread my message based on what you have seen, but instead upon the truth I shall reveal. I will allow only one proof of this event, but from here on, we shall only speak of the purpose of my ascension, and your salvation”. With that the light got even brighter, and nothing could be seen but the light. There was the most indescribably beautiful music, and a feeling of all encompassing love and understanding. Then suddenly everything was gone, and the area was back to normal. Everyone felt like we were in the light for hours, but only a few minutes had passed.

We all started checking our cameras and video recorders, but they were all blank, except for one picture on one man’s camera, just as Leraël had said (“one proof of this event”). Another incredible thing happened. One man who was sitting on a stair, dictating into his laptop computer, had the dictation program running through the entire event, and incredibly the program transcribed what the angels and Leraël said (which is how I was able to tell you word-for-word above). Normally these programs need to “know your voice” to work properly, but miraculously, it transcribed everything. People gathered together and franticly wrote down what was on the screen, and those with laptops and PDAs made copies of the one picture from the other man’s digital camera. There had to be around a hundred of us there, and we all saw and heard, and experienced the same thing. I don’t think any of us will be the same again. It’s been rumored that Leraël had appeared to other people around the world that day, and that his message was of love and preparation for a global event to come.Strangely, governments, churches, and the press have kept completely silent about this event, despite all the witnesses. People in government have been told not to comment on any of this, and even to deny the event happened. Websites and postings have mysteriously been erased. Some witnesses have even been threatened. I think those in power are all just afraid of losing control of the masses, now that a real god has arrived. It seems to have actually become a conspiracy, where churches and government plants have produced fake information to try and debunk Leraël. I know the government and the religious leaders of Jesus’ time did the same thing to him, so it should be expected, but it is shameful.

Since the Teotihuacan event, Leraël has tried to stop showing visible miracles, and has repeated the need to “have faith based in the message, not in the miracle”. Not surprisingly, the different “christs” and “ascended masters” throughout history who have come to guide mankind along its path, have also stated the importance of this. Even though he avoids performing big miracles, everyone who comes in contact with him is profoundly changed in incredible and wonderful ways, and there have been many rumors circulating of miraculous healings taking place wherever he appears.

Leraël has appeared to many of the people who where at the Teotihuacan Miracle (including me), and instructed us to spread the word of his ascension and his message of love and preparedness. He has given specific instructions to a number of us on how we are to do this. My instruction was to spread his message via the Internet, and with your help, I can fulfill my commission (in-other-words, tell people about this).

Lord RayEL UFO over Jerusalem 2011 HOAX


, , , , , , , , , , ,

The Moon story was an elaborate hoax, the date of 28 January given on the ra-el.org website never corresponded with the alleged reports made in India.  You can read about the HOAX here Lord RayEL Jesus and Mary on the Moon foretold my coming! HOAX.   I will now provide evidence that shines a light further on the deception that Raymond Lear is the ‘Returned Christ’ as claimed.  

On 28 October, 2012 a staggering 22 months after ‘RayEL ‘Ra-EL’ appeared on the scene professing to be the Returned Christ, the miraculous story of the UFO seen over Jerusalem on 28th January 2011 was added to ra-el.org website.   This bizarre event, according to their website entry, was the spirit of an Annunaki descending from a spacecraft over the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, then to zoom across the world to infuse with the failed politician and wanted man Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear.

What this blog will show you is proof that this whole story is fictional, providing evidence and sources, in order that YOU can verify.

This is a screen shot dated 18th May 2011 from the internet archive Waybackmachine This demonstrates that the only evidence posted as ‘proof’ that Raymond Lear was the returned Christ was the Moon story which consequently was a HOAX.

Source:- http://web.archive.org/web/20110518132247/http://www.ra-el.org/evidence.html

According to former Apostolic Nuncio, Carter Davis the You Tube channel ChristhasReturned uploaded snippets of the 2011 UFO Jerusalem Event on the 14th May and 4th July.  22 months later the website was updated to include this event.  For such an important event, one would think that this would have been on the site since creation, ask yourself why it wasn’t!

The following is an excerpt taken from the ra-el.org website, dated 28th October, 2012.

What did we see on the video of the U.F.O. over Jerusalem? “The return of Christ’s Holy Spirit.

As the Bible tells you, Yeshua walked as a man until his baptism, when was witnessed the Holy Spirit visibly descending from Heaven to join with him, making him Man and God. On January 28th, 2011, the world witnessed the Holy Spirit return to merge again with the man who is the Christ, exactly where and how the Holy Scriptures predicted. When Christ’s Holy Spirit ascended to Heaven 2000 Years ago, it was at this location, and the angels assured the witnesses that he would return the same way.

Acts 1:11 And they were saying to them, “Galilean men, why are you standing and gazing into the sky? This Yeshua, who was taken up from you into Heaven shall come in this way, as when you saw him going up into Heaven.”  Matthew 24:27 For just as lightning goes out from The East and appears unto The West, so will the coming of The Son of Man be.

When his Holy Spirit descended from the clouds in the Middle East (Jerusalem), it entered our realm with a flash like lightening, and instantly traveled to the West (North America), to join with the Son of Man, RayEl.  Some have tried to claim that the video is a hoax, but it is not, and you can see all 6 witness videos for yourself, including a video taken by a government weather camera  (Ra-el.org, October, 2012).

Source: http://web.archive.org/web/20121028042532/http://www.ra-el.org/faq.html

This screen shot taken from the internet archive, Waybackmachine shows the date the information was added to the website.

The moon story, just did not have enough punch, enough impact.   Insert UFOs and you have yourself a truly incredible and somewhat unbelievable story.   You will attract a plethora of ‘Customers’, conspiracy theorists, those whom believe they are ‘Star Seeds’, Rainbows, Alien Hybrids, Sci-Fi fanatics, you name it.   This story sold, and it sold well. The ‘original’ UFO video was viewed worldwide at the time, deemed also to be a hoax, it even made it mainstream on news broadcasts worldwide.

I asked Carter Davis about the ‘UFO and date discrepancy’.

Care to take a wild guess who commissioned that? Yep it was MY doing. Now I understand what the hell you were talking about when you referenced the “UFO Video”. Domini produced this at my request as Apostolic Nuncio. They were put on thumb drives to be sent worldwide to government missions, religious institutions etc. I still have a ton of them, want one. I got them the first week December 2012. THAT was when I snapped out of it. They were never sent out. Incidentally I paid for them myself… $2000.   

The diplomatic video was my idea. Yes, this video was designed for the Diplomatic Legations of the UN globally, not true believers who were already familiar with this nonsense. I PERSONALLY emailed dozens of them. “They” wanted global exposure, I figured the video would be a good way to go.

So in October 2012 various videos of this ‘event’ were repackaged, rebranded, together with American news footage … and the Annunaki were firmly inserted into a ‘Myth’.

The new video was added to the homepage 31st October 2012.  OVER 22 MONTHS AFTER THE EVENT.  On 25th September 2012 a video entitled Has Jesus Christ Returned or was it a UFO over Turkey ? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E9T8hpm5SmA.  Links in this video directed you to the RA-EL.org website.

Now, ask yourself … why wasn’t this ADDED TO THE WEBSITE and released at the outset when Raymond Howard Lear was  was apparently announced to the world (May 2011) by the Holy and Apostolic Order of the Temple?

Surely, this was a greater sign than the Moon hoax.  Both these pieces of ‘Evidence’ can be discounted as ‘signs that Jesus returned’ and what is to follow is evidence that totally debunks this UFO HOAX.   It’s very easy to establish that Raymond Howard Lear was less into foresight than hindsight. He manipulated the UFO incident to fit his narrative.

UFO JERUSALEM – Deception at the Dome

On January 28th, 2011, above the Islamic shrine known as The Dome of the Rock, a bright ball of powerful white light hovered effortlessly in the midnight skies of Jerusalem. As the light slowly descended toward the Dome, there was a bright white flash, and then it rigidly shot out of sight. The video made international headlines and was featured on many nightly news broadcasts. This was quickly becoming the most exciting UFO sighting in a long time. That is, until the true story behind the video’s film-maker slowly came to light.

The video(S)

Video 1 

UFO – Dome of the Rock – Temple Mount – Jerusalem 28.01.2011

The clip details two men watching the a glowing orb (or light) hovering high over the Temple Mount for a small while, and then descends down almost low enough to land on the dome of the temple. It rests for a brief moment, there is some bright flash that fills the screen and then the orb shoots into the sky with blinding speed. The camera then pans to the sky overhead and shows many red dancing lights flickering in the sky. Voices heard are two males who do not speak english and say “Whoa!” when the UFO takes off into the sky. Special note: The entire clip has the back of a man standing in front of the camera man and he is holding a cell phone up and seemingly filming the UFO also.

Video 2 

Shortly after, other clips started to appear. The “2nd video” was uploaded to Youtube on Jan 30th. It apparently shows the cellphone footage taken by the second man from clip one and contains the same audio as clip one with slight differences in sound quality.  Both video 1  one and two are submitted as connected pieces of evidence.

Video 3 

The third video (though mistakenly called “second” in its title) was of the UFO from a totally different perspective and with what appeared to be many voices.  The video was proven to be a moving computer effect added over a still picture easily found.

The lady says “you can almost hardly look at it” the object does not seem to reflect any light from the gold-plated dome below it. This is very mysterious indeed, and strongly suggests that the “UFO” light was digitally inserted into the scene.

Video 4 

These few videos surfaced and went viral on YouTube.  However, not all the videos were the same and it quickly became apparent that there were a few oddities in the footage and technical hitches that may reveal the videos’ true nature: an elaborate hoax.

Why is it a HOAX?

For anyone who still sees a UFO through the sea of red flags, there’s the video analysis that shows evidence of fakery. Robert Sheaffer, a longtime skeptical UFO investigator and author of the Bad UFOs blog told Life’s Little Mysteries that, “the original Jerusalem UFO has now been definitely shown to be a hoax. Effects of the video processing software are clearly seen. The hoaxer used Motion Tile effects with edge mirroring to introduce camera shake into the video. You can see the mirroring effects along the edge of the video. This proves that the video did not go directly from the camera to YouTube, that it made a stop in between inside a sophisticated video editing software suite. Once you start editing it like that, a skilled hoaxer can put practically anything in it”.  More from Robert Sheaffer below.

The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), one of the oldest, largest, and most respected UFO investigation organisations in the world, announced their findings about the Jerusalem UFO. MUFON, though hardly a hard-line skeptical organisation, has a stable of experts they draw upon for analysis.  MUFON’s chief Photo and Video Analyst, Mr. Marc Dantonio, stated :

I firmly believe that the UFO was not real, for many reasons…this video and the other Jerusalem UFO Videos are in my opinion hoaxes.

This of course puts many UFO believers in an awkward position — unless they assume that the world’s largest UFO-promoting organisation is also part of the effort to cover up evidence for UFOs!

Video 6 – proof of Hoax 

This user had posted several earlier videos HOAXKiller succeeded, showing quite clearly the effects from editing. The hoaxer has used something called “Motion Tile” effects in the processing of this video. An artificial camera shake is introduced, to make it look like the video was taken using a hand-held camera. But what do you show, say at the extreme left edge, when the camera moves to the left? You don’t have anything at all to the left of the left edge of the picture (although you would if the camera were really shaking). You might solve the problem of “nothing to show” by filling in with blank space, but that would not look realistic. So a “mirroring” effect is generally used. You create data beyond the edge of the frame by mirroring data at the edge of the frame, along all four sides. Watch HOAXKiller1’s video above, and you will see this happening. First, we are clearly shown where the mirroring occurs, in the first minute of the video. Next, we see an excerpt from an instructional video for using a video editing program. It is a tutorial involved with adding or removing camera shake. It explains how to use “motion tiles,” with “mirrored edges.” This same process was used during the creation of the original Jerusalem UFO video. This proves that the video did not go directly from the camera to YouTube, but made a stop in between inside a sophisticated video editing software suite. Which is obviously where it picked up its image of the “UFO.” (Robert Sheaffer)


The Media 

Israeli Channel 10 carried out an investigation.   From their original report we learn that they interviewed and exposed the Actors and film teacher  who all took a part in this hoax.

When first posted, the film-maker was anonymous. Then, several other videos began to surface, showing the same event from different locations. One would think this would garner credibility, but when the film-maker(s) were finally identified, it was an entirely different story all together. The original video was shot by one Eligael Gadliovich. It was discovered that Gadliovich was the owner of his own film production company. In the video, a film teacher named Golan Ardiv was identified as one of the witnesses. This sparked much suspicion, and the flame was only fueled by the fact that the other videos, shot by various teenagers, were connected as well. The teens just so happened to be students of Ardiv’s.

The tangled web had been undone, and when confronted, Gadliovich denied any connection to the other videos. As for Ardiv, he first denied knowing the teens, but soon retracted his statement and admitted that he not only knew the teens, but he had taught them as well. This was enough for Israeli TV investigative reporter, Nitay Elboim, who first broke the story about the entire controversy, to determine the conspiratorial end to a case that could have broken the lid off the entire UFO phenomenon if found authentic. Although the motives of Gadliovich, Ardiv, and the teens are still unclear, one thing is for certain; this case would pave the way for much more deception to plague the beliefs and gullibility of the mass public for the remainder of 2011.


Israeli News also reported days after the event.  At the time, the videographers did not come forward, neither did any other witnesses.   The comments section is still open.  

First Time? UFO ‘Sighted’ Over Temple Mount 

Witness accounts

The Dome of the Rock is one of the most famous and important religious sites in the world, and there are well over a million people in Jerusalem at any given time—many of them religious tourists near the Temple Mount. It’s probable that there were thousands of people in the area at the time, yet no one else reported seeing or videotaping the bright light? Very suspicious.

Other Evidence to take into consideration 

Jordanian Generators 25th January 2011

Huge electricity generators donated by the government of Jordan were brought into the Temple Mount Tuesday 25th January.  A group led by Likud’s Moshe Feiglin documented the entry of the generators into the Mount. Nobody, to this day, has come forward and inform what exactly these generators were located in the area for.

What Ecumenical Order of Christ and Holy Apostolic Order of The Temple say …. 

When Christ’s Holy Spirit ascended to Heaven 2000 Years ago, it was at this location, and the angels assured the witnesses that he would return the same way (Ra-el.org, October 2012) 

According to the Holy and Apostolic Order of the Temple, this light omitted from the ‘Ufo’ was the soul of Enlil, an Annunaki God which has returned.  Then they would ask you to believe that this Annunaki God was Jesus Christ in a previous incarnation and that he has returned and infused with Raymond Howard-Lear to become Rayel, the Returned Christ.

Religious Significance 

According to Sunni Islamic tradition, the rock is the spot from which Muhammad ascended to Heaven accompanied by the angel Gabriel. Further, Muhammad was taken here by Gabriel to pray with Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.

The Holy & Apostolic Order of the Temple used scripture in an attempt to legitimise their claim that this indeed was the spirit of Jesus Christ returning.

Luke’s Gospel gives a graphic account of Jesus ascending bodily into heaven near Bethany, not far from Jerusalem.   Acts of the Apostles, records that Jesus remained on earth for forty days and was then taken up at the Mount of Olives. Presumably the author received further information between the time of writing the Gospel and writing Acts.  So if He ascended from the Mount of Olives, as Acts says… then the reverse play of His return should be His descent from the clouds back onto the Mount of Olives – which the prophet Zechariah envisioned.

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.  And HIS FEET SHALL STAND IN THAT DAY UPON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south… and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee… and the Lord shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and His name One. (Zech.14:3-9)

You are then told to believe that the flash witnessed in all the fake videos was a ball of lightning that then travelled to North America and infused itself with Raymond Howard-Lear, therefore becoming the Returned Christ.

For just as lightning goes out from The East and appears unto The West, so will the coming of The Son of Man be. Matthew 24:27  (Ra-el.org, October, 2012)

Jesus Christ’s Return will not be in this or that particular place, but, like the lightning, sudden and universal. The appearance of the true Christ will be as distinguishable from that of the false Christ, as lightning, which shineth ALL AROUND the hemisphere, not a UFO.


The Holy & Apostolic Order of Christ and The Ecumenical Order of Christ have used this HOAX in an attempt to legitimise the so called return of Christ, one should also take into consideration the Moon HOAX  – The apparent signs on the moon date given 28th January 2011 when in FACT reports were made of an anomaly on 20/21 January 2011.

Lord RayEL Ra-EL Jesus and Mary on the Moon foretold my coming! HOAX


, , , , , , , , ,

For those of you who are super observant, this is a no-brainer.   When you read an article on a website or anything on the internet, do you evaluate what you have read ranging in its accuracy, reliability, and value. Or do you just take whatever you have read as TRUTH as you trust the source and therefore you have no reason to question its source and providence.   

This article will examine a claim by a gentleman named Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear who professes to be ‘The Returned Christ’.  Yes, he claims to be Jesus.

LORD RAYELS WEBSITE ra-EL.org has been online since May 2011.  Over the years Lord RayEL has had a Facebook Congregation and from January 2017 transferred to a new european platform namely VK to recruit followers.   Therefore, since 2011 it has recruited Clergy who have come and gone and Lord RayEL’s ‘Imperial Regent’ known as ‘Angelus Domini and Alan Douglas’ will boast that they have thousands of followers, all whom you would think, have visited the website and read the Evidence Section.  

According to the website entry 18th May 2011, RayEL, Ra-el is the incarnated Jesus, the prophesied Messiah and a sign foretelling this was first seen on the Moon.   According to the Holy & Apostolic Order of the Temple this was a divine sign and they used scripture from the Bible to legitimise this claim.  The use of scripture is often cherry picked and distortedly misrepresented to back up ‘prophecies’ and this is a continued theme throughout the Lie that Raymond Howard-Lear is the Returned Christ.

“Matthew 24:30 tells us that right before the appearance of Christ, “…the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens…”. (Ra-el.org, 18th May, 2011)

In fact this passage “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” Matthew 24:30 is in fact after the great tribulation where the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.  This passage can be cross referenced with Daniel 7:13. “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence”.

This above scripture quoted has very little to do with an article the that was written by Manoj R Nair, in Mumbai for the Daily News & Analysis which was PUBLISHED ON SATURDAY JANUARY 22nd 2011.  The article was entitled  ‘Jesus on moon sparks doomsday fears in Mumbai‘.  This was a bizarre report of a sighting that the image of Mother Mary and infant Jesus  was reportedly ‘clearly seen on the moon’ on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st 2011 in Mumbai, Goa and Bihar and that this fuelled fears about an impending apocalypse.  You can read the article relating to this which was attached as ‘evidence‘ on RA-EL.org here…


The Holy & Apostolic Order of the Temple used this ‘event‘, applied it to scripture, as proof that Raymond Howard Lear was the Returned Christ.  This is the first inconsistency that YOU WILL FIND when you start investigating the claim that Raymond Howard Lear is the ‘Returned Christ’.  Their website entry dated 18th May 2011 stated…

 “On January 28th 2011, over a billion people in India could see the clear image of Jesus on the moon, and though the story was widely reported throughout the rest of the world”.( ra-el.org, 18th May 2011)

ra-EL website (Evidence Section) Screenshot dated 14 October 2016

This is totally fabricated.   The event was reported on 20th/21st January NOT 28th January as INDICATED as ‘Evidence‘ that Raymond Lear is the Returned Christ.

WHILST researching this claim, I also looked for other articles regarding this event.

The links are provided :-


News that Matters – Goa Citizens Fear Virgin “Mary” on the moon.

Free Republic – Jesus on Moon Sparks Doomsday fears in Mumbai

Act for Libraries – Image of Jesus appears on Moon

Before its News – Jesus appears on Moon causes Doomsday Panic 

All of the above articles STATE categorically that the event witnessed was seen on 20/21st January 2011 Not 28th.

The  Holy & Apostolic Order of Christ also state on their website …

“We know that if the Messiah appeared in the clouds, it would be impossible for every eye to see Him, because the earth is round, and clouds only cover about half of the planet. On the other hand, there are “clouds” that everyone can see at the same time… The Internet, as well as private intranets, are now called “the clouds” (as in “cloud computing”), and the announcement of Lord Ra-El, on May 21st 2011, less than 4 months after the sign on the moon, has been made in the clouds, so every eye can see him”. (Ra-el.org, May, 2011)

Source:- http://web.archive.org/web/20110801060205/http://www.ra-el.org/evidence.html

A conspiracy theorist could argue that this was a part Stage 2 of Project Bluebeam to implement the new age religion with the antichrist at its head.  That the moon imagery was a three-dimensional optical hologram was used, as part of the gigantic ‘space- show’.   Scientists, however, explained the images as the result of the sun’s light falling on the undulating surface of the moon.

FROM THE VERY OUTSET THE Holy Apostolic Order of the Temple and The Ecumenical Order of Christ have lied about this event.  THEIR WEBSITE HAS INCLUDED THIS FALSE INFORMATION SINCE 2011.

On 14th October 2016, the writer had the opportunity to ask ‘Imperial Regent’ Angelus Domini aka Alan Douglas about this event.   This is a copy of that transcript.

As you can see Alan Douglas gives a date of 22nd January and then states it’s a typo.   As you can see from the evidence that I have presented here, the event did not occur on the 22nd.

What is rather astonishing is that in 6 years nobody has questioned this, obviously that includes Clergy too, whom have access to admin controls on this website.  There is a great deal of high quality information available through the Internet,  Unfortunately, there is also a large amount of misinformation, this claim that Raymond Elwood Howard-Lear being the Returned Christ falls neatly into the latter.  Remember that a Website that makes up facts, quotes people who don’t exist, and cites imaginary sources could look just as professional and slick as a highly reliable and credible site but in actual fact is deceiving you.  This is the first of many lies that have been uncovered surrounding the tale of Raymond Elwood Howard Lear being ‘Jesus’.

This elaborate story was superseded in 2012 with even more of a bizarre story ‘The Jerusalem UFO EVENT’.

Crop Circles Decoded with Dr Horace Drew ‘Red Collie’


, , , ,

I had the absolute delight speaking to Dr Horace Drew known as ‘Red Collie” during a Fact or Fiction Live hangout.  Dr Horace Drew is one of the worlds foremost crop circle investigators and has been researching the phenomena since 2002.

Many people believe that crop formations carry a symbolically encoded message. As with mythology, symbolism appeals to our imagination and is open to different interpretations. But most researchers would agree that crop formations are ‘mandalas of hope’ for our troubled world.  So who are creating them. If an alien species, why would they choose crop circles as a way of demonstrating to humans their existence? Crop circles can easily be replicated by humans, therefore fueling skepticism towards the belief that extraterrestrials are behind the circles creation. Surely these intelligent beings would leave something more noteworthy as actual evidence of their existence, like a hologram or a piece of their technology.

As of yet there has been nothing that matches up to that kind of evidence. As Carl Sagan said, extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence. The UFO phenomenon is, in my humble opinion, based on faith and is centered around the human notion of wanting to believe we are being taken care of.  

Having visited many crop circles, especially those here in the shire, yes, I can concur that in my opinion that some were more than likely created by humans., but those which are unexplained hold magical qualities.  Unless you have physically visited on, stood in the circle and felt the electrical current zip through your body and your senses are awakened – you cannot pooh pooh the subject matter.

In the above live hangout, Dr Horace Drew, analyses the April 2017 crop circles.   It’s interesting as he mentioned something that I had not come across before, and that is, that the crop circle which was

Anne Boleyn ? 


, ,

Art historian and Tudor author Roland Hui has rediscovered a contemporary depiction of Anne Boleyn within the The Black Book of the Garter, created in 1534 and boasting several images of kings, including Henry VIII.

As Hui describes, “a lady, crowned and sceptred, sits enthroned surrounded by courtiers. Behind her are six maids of honour, and before her on the left, stands an armoured herald bearing the arms of England on his tabard. On the right is an ‘ancient knight’ wearing a rich chain of office. The accompanying text, written in Latin, identifies her as the Queen Consort who helps preside over the meeting of the Order:

‘At this appearance, was his excellent Queen, splendidly arrayed with three hundred beautiful ladies, eminent for the honour of their birth, and the gracefulness and beauty of their clothing and dress. For heretofore when jousts, tournaments, entertainments and public shows were made, in which men of nobility and valour showed their strength and prowess, the Queen, ladies, and other women of illustrious birth with ancient knights, and some chosen heralds were wont to be, and it was supposed that they ought to be present as proper judges, to see, discern, approve or disapprove what might be done, to challenge, allot, by speech, nod, discourse, or otherwise to promote the matter in hand, to encourage and stir up bravery by their words and looks’.

The ‘excellent Queen’ referred to is Philippa of Hainault, the wife of Edward III. However, a closer inspection of the illumination shows that the sitter wears a large circular pendant at her bosom. On it are combined letters in gold: A and R – that is Anna Regina. It is Anne Boleyn as Queen Philippa.”

Unfortunately, the artist and court painter Horenbout seemed more preoccupied with depicting an image of majesty rather than accurately depicting Anne’s features – however, there is a definite telltale oval face and pointed chin, which corresponds to the popular portraiture of Queen Anne, most notably the famous “B” necklace pattern. Furthermore, the dress worn by the queen is strikingly similar to one later donned by Jane Seymour.

To quote Claire Ridgeway, it seems the Moost Happi coin is no longer the only confirmed contemporary image of Anne!

“Where Hast Thou Been, Sister?”: The Weird Sisters in Scotland Before Shakespeare


, , ,

The three witches of William Shakespeare’s play, “Macbeth” are rather famous figures, both for their role in the play itself and for the portrayal of witchraft therein. They are also identified in the play as the ‘Weird Sisters’, and, through their prophecy, plant the idea of becoming king in Macbeth’s mind, though they notably never tell him how to accomplish this, nor even fully and unambiguously encourage him to commit murder (though their delight in stirring up mischief is evident from the beginning of the play).

In creating the Weird Sisters it is also well known that Shakespeare’s sources included not only Raphael Holinshed’s ‘Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland’, but also possibly beliefs about witchcraft current in England and Scotland partially as a result of King James VI of Scotland and I of England’s anti-witchcraft stance and own writings against witches.

A generic picture of Lords meeting Ladies used amongst other things for illustrating “Macbeth and Banquo encountering the witches” in the first edition of Holinshed’s Chronicles.

For example in the play, the witches boil concoctions in cauldrons, chanting rhymes over it, and plan to sail to sea as a rat using a sieve as a boat, and some of the aspects of their character are similar to the behaviour of accused ‘witches’ during the Scottish with trials in the late sixteenth century. However, not only do the Weird Sisters as a phenomenon appear in English and Scottish literature long before the first appearance of Shakespeare’s play some time around the early 1600s, but they are also significantly regarded as separate from witches in several texts.

The first time the Weird Sisters appear alongside Macbeth is in the ‘Orygynale Cronykil of Scotland’, a metrical work in Scots which purports to relate the history of Scotland from the time of Adam and Eve, and was likely composed some time in the first half of the 1420s by Andrew Wyntoun, prior of Loch Leven. In Wyntoun’s narrative, Macbeth has a dream wherein he is seated alongside Duncan I during a hunt, holding the leashes of two greyhounds, when three women pass by.

As the appearance of these women is brief, I’ll quote it in full here:

‘He sawe thre wemen by gangand,

And thai wemen than thowcht he,

Thre werd Systrys mast lyk to be;

The first he hard say gangand by,

‘Lo yhondyr the Thayne off Crwmbachty!’

The tothir woman sayd agayne,

‘Off Moraye yhondyre I se the Thayne.’

The thryd than sayd, ‘I se the Kyng.’

All this he herd in his dremyng;’


He saw three women going by

And those women then thought he,

Three weird sisters most likely to be;

The first he heard say while going by,

‘Lo yonder the Thane of Cromarty!’

The other woman said in reply,

‘Of Moray yonder I see thee thane.’

The third then said, ‘I see thee king.’

All this he heard in his dreaming.’

Shortly after this event Macbeth is made thane and soon begins to covet the crown. As you can see, though skeletal, this version of Macbeth’s encounter with the Weird Sisters, who here inhabit the dream world, does vaguely echo the more famous lines in Shakespeare, with the exception of the locations mentioned (though the large regions of Cromarty and Moray bear a much greater resemblance to the territory of the historical Macbeth than Glamis- in Angus- and Cawdor). In other places, Wyntoun uses the word ‘weird’ (’werd’) in its original sene of ‘fate’ and, since Wyntoun’s work was the first substantial history of Scotland written in Scots, it is unsurprising that this would be the first to associate Macbeth with the ‘weird-sisters’, whose name seems ultimately derived from Old English, though John of Fordun, who wrote a Latin history of Scotland just before Wyntoun’s work, does not mention any prophetic visions regarding Macbeth (Wyntoun and Fordun were apparently unaware of each other’s chronicles, but their works seem to have been based on similar sources, many of which are now lost). Wherever the addition of the weird-sisters came from- and remember Andrew Wyntoun was writing almost four hundred years after the time of the historical Macbeth- it is interesting that they enter the work at around the same time as the story is put into the Scots language, though, as will be discussed below, they are also connected to a wider continental tradition and, while the ‘Orygynale Cronykil’ is the first time they appear alongside Macbeth, it is not quite the earliest use of the term ‘weird-sister’.

Sueno’s Stone, in Forres, Moray, to which many dubious legends have been attached, including one about Macbeth and the weird sisters, as well as various others.

Both John of Fordun and Andrew Wyntoun’s works seem to have been used as source material by Hector Boece, the first principal of the University of Aberdeen, whose ‘Historia Gentis Scotorum’, written in the late 1520s during the reign of King James V, is the next major appearance of the weird sisters alongside Macbeth.


Boece was writing in Latin, so he himself does not refer to ‘Weird’ sisters, though in the 1530s James V commissioned two translations of the work into Scots, with the makar William Stewart rendering it into poetic form and John Bellenden into prose, and both of these versions refer to ‘weird sisters’.  Boece’s version of events differs importantly from Wyntoun’s, and Bellenden in turn added some of his own material in his translation but in all three versions the story of Macbeth is much closer to that which we know today.

Returning from the war with the Norwegians, Macbeth and Banquo are on their way to Forres in Moray (Bellenden) or are travelling through a deep forest (Stewart) when three women, who were according to Bellenden assumed to be ‘weird sisteris’ by the ordinary people, appear before them (Stewart does not quite use the term weird sisters in that order, but he frequently refers to them as sisters and as laying down a ‘werd’). The women are ‘clothit in elrage and uncouth weid’ (’clothed in eldritch and uncouth dress’) or ‘cleithing quihilk wes of elritche hew’ (’clothing which was of eldritch hue’) and deliver various prophecies to Macbeth and Banquo. In Macbeth’s case, they claim to have foreseen that he shall be thane of Glamis, thane of Cawdor, and eventually king, while Banquo is to be the progenitor of a line of kings. This done they vanish into thin air, and do not return to advise Macbeth at any further point in the tale. It is the urging of Macbeth’s wife which helps convince him to kill Duncan, while in Bellenden’s prose account, Banquo assists in the murder. Thus, as in Shakespeare’s play, the Weird Sisters prophecies are not necessarily intended to encourage violence in themselves, but simply provide a spur to the characters’ own ambitions, though in Boece and his translators’ version the sisters are far more morally ambiguous and do not display their sense of mischief from the beginning as in Shakespeare.

The story continues much as we might expect, though with some additions. Having reigned well for some time, introducing many good laws, Macbeth begins to fear Banquo as a result of the prophecy concerning his offspring, and sends a band of armed men to assassinate Banquo and his son Fleance. Fleance, of course, escapes, has some adventures in Wales and, before being executed himself, fathers a son named Walter there, this son being conflated with the historical Walter Fitzalan, the founder of the Stewart dynasty (this false origin story may simply have been a confusion between the names Fleance and Flaald, or perhaps a more intentional confusion- in any case, the Stewarts traced their ancestry back to Brittany not Banquo, though the area around the Welsh March also comes into the story). In the meantime, Macbeth has received more prophecies though not, significantly, from the Weird Sisters. Growing tyrannical, Macbeth regularly consorts with warlocks and witches (or, in Bellenden’s version, one particular witch) and consequently has no fear of death, having been delivered the well-known prophecy that he will not be killed by any man born of woman nor before Birnam wood moved to Dunsinane. Unfortunately for him, when he targets the thane of Fife, Macduff, for failing to provide supplies for the building of a castle at Dunsinane, and destroys his family, he seals his own fate. When MacDuff returns in the following of Malcolm Ceann Mor, it is revealed that he was ‘schorne out of my moderis wambe’ and so Macbeth meets his end. Though the story is thus broadly familiar to us, the categories of weird sister and witch are still very clearly separate in the accounts of Boece and his translators, though they are also clearly supernatural beings of the real world, rather than being part of the dreamworld that Wyntoun described.

(A woodcut illustrating the episode in Holinshed’s Chronicles where Macbetha and Banquo meet the witches)

It was likely through John Bellenden’s translation that Boece’s version of the Macbeth story, along with the translator’s additions, filtered through to the English writer Raphael Holinshed. Here the weird sisters again appear in ‘strange and wild apparell, resembling creatures of elder world’ and Holinshed writes that common opinion concerning their identities was that:

‘these women were either the weird sisters, that is (as ye would say) the goddesses of destinie, or else some nymphs or feiries, indued with knowledge of prophesie by their necromanticall science’

Thus the weird sisters are both associated with the Fates and with nymphs and fairies (an association which, at least in the latter case, might also have been apparent in the Scottish mythos), but are given a more sinister aspect through the accusation of their having dabbled in necromancy, rather than just being somewhat mysterious and ambiguous spirits. Again though, they largely disappear as the narrative continue. Holinshed’s account is very similar to Bellenden’s- almost word for word in some places- and whilst the effects of the weird sisters’ prophecies linger throughout the tale, they themselves do not reappear. Macbeth puts faith in prophecy after that of the weird sisters is proven true, but he instead seeks out wizards to advise him, and is told the manner of his death by ‘a certeine witch’. Holinshed’s Chronicles, as pointed out above, were in turn a major source for William Shakespeare, and though there are a couple of theories as to Shakespeare having heard of various other fortune-telling women in contemporary plays, his use of the weird sisters does seem to rest to a large degree on Holinshed. However another major source was likely the witch trials of late sixteenth century Scotland and the various literature about witchcraft circulating as a result, in particular King James VI’s own ‘Daemonologie’. Shakespeare smoothed out the narrative and cut out the difference between weird sister and witch, imbuing the former with many of the attributes of witchcraft as given in the ‘Daemonologie’. Nowadays, the ‘witches’ in Macbeth and the weird sisters are interchangeable figures, being explicitly one and the same in the play. And after the publication of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the early seventeenth century, the rest is quite literally history.

The Weird Sisters do not only appear in conjunction with Macbeth in pre-Shakespearian British literature, and though for the most part they are only referenced briefly, these brief references sometimes tell us a lot. They also make at least one significant literary appearance in a Scots poem from at least thirty years before the Union of the Crowns, which is particularly interesting given that it relates to Hallowe’en (which I hope everyone is enjoying). Before this though it would perhaps also be useful to put the Weird sisters briefly in a wider context, both Scottish and continental.

Scottish folklore has rather more than its fair share of witches and spae-wives, mysterious hags, ghostly washerwomen, giantesses, fairy queens, glaistigs and green ladies. These figures may have either Celtic or Germanic roots, but the importance of old, vulgar, or unconventional women in Scotland’s folk culture is very evident, and even the words ‘cailleach’ and ‘carline’- from Gaelic and Scots respectively- have cultural implications that go far beyond their strictly literal meaning of ‘old woman’. In the case of the weird sisters, they give off an air of mystery closer to that of a variety of figures ranging from the bean nighe to the Cailleach, rather than the more witchy or malevolent Gyre-Carline or Nicnevin (though, as seen below, the weird sisters could be exceedingly abusive in their manner at times and were capable of cursing unfortunates out to an extreme degree). Thus there is certainly precedent for shadowy, ambiguous figures such as the weird sisters throughout Scottish folklore and literature.   But there is also a wider context- that of the Fates, or any group of women (usually three in number) who foretell destiny in a variety of European cultures, and probably further afield as well. As pointed out earlier, ‘weird’ is an Old English-derived word, originally approximating to ‘fate’. Thus from very early in the Middle Ages, people in both England and Scotland were translating the Roman Parcae or Greek Moriae (i.e., the Fates) as ‘weirds’, or some variation on the term. Geoffrey Chaucer, for example, in his work ‘The Legend of Good Women’, uses the term ‘the werdys’ to refer to the Greek Fates, while the earliest Scottish use of the phrase ‘weird sister’ is from around 1400, in the fragmentary ‘Troy Book’, a metrical Scots account of the Trojan War (which was a highly popular subject among Scottish writers at this point). In 1483, the English-Latin dictionary Catholicanum Anglicum translated ‘parce’ as ‘weird sister’ while the early sixteenth century romance ‘Clariodus’ (a Scots version of the story of ‘Cleriadus et Meliadice’, telling the story of a son of the Count of Asturias, in Spain) mentions the weird sisters as having laid out the hero’s ‘weird’ or destiny at his birth, appearing in a role similar to that of the Fates. Gavin Douglas’ landmark translation of the Aeneid also mentions weird sisters several times. As well as the Classical model of the Fates however, there may also be a connection to the Norns of Norse mythology (again similar to the Fates, but with their own subtleties, such as sometimes being viewed as giantesses, and there being a number of Norns besides the main three), as Scotland’s links to Scandinavia ran deep even in the fifteenth century.

The model of the Fates thus perhaps accounts for the tradition of the weird sisters to a large extent, but at some point the Scottish weird sisters appear to have acquired characteristics and tales of their own (whether this was mirrored in England or if weird sister continued to simply mean one of the Fates, I am unsure). Though most of our examples come from the Scottish literary sphere, with the weird sisters making an appearance in strictly literary circles, there are indications that they had also entered the wider folklore of the country, at least the Lowland part of it. For example, in c.1549, the Complaynt of Scotland made reference to ‘the Tale of the Three Weird Sisters’, though we have little indication of what this tale involved, or if it had any link to the weird sisters’ role in the Macbeth story, as already covered. But if the weird sisters’ place in Scottish folklore is as mysterious as the sisters themselves, they still seem to have found their place in at least one important piece of literature from the period, the late sixteenth century ‘flyting’ of Patrick Hume of Polwarth and Alexander Montgomerie- two prominent poets at the court of James VI.

To put it briefly, a flyting is a poetic war of insults, a slanging match which might take place in the street, but was also the name of a more polished- though no less vulgar and rowdy- and highly performative brand of poetry which served as entertainment at the royal court (and in which at least one king, James V, took part at some point). The most famous example is probably that of William Dunbar and Walter Kennedy (though for all the extremely offensive language and insinuations hurled at each other, the two makars didn’t necessarily have to dislike each other personally), but another notable piece is that of Polwarth and Montgomerie, with the latter poet delivering a particularly fine argument. In insulting his adversary, Montgomerie narrates a (clearly fictional and scurrilous) version of Polwarth’s life, from his conception and baptism. He claims that, “In the hinder end of harvest, on Alhallow even/When our good nighbours doe ryd’, an elf and an ape copulated and conceived the unlucky Polwarth, leaving him in a bush.

Soon thereafter the Weird Sisters ‘wandring, as they were wont then’, arrive on the scene. Disgusted by the unfortunate unchristened bairn’s ugliness and deformity, they first guess at where it has come from and then curse it roundly, laying upon it misfortune after misfortune in (brilliantly) alliterative verse in complete contrast to their role at heroes’ births. Polwarth is to be suckled twice, at least once by Nicnevin (and the emphasis placed on the implications and symbolism of nursing in medieval and early modern culture as represented here could be an essay in itself), will be beset by many illnesses and will later consort with outlaws and the like. As their cursing draws to a close, they speak in turn, one sister after the other, in a manner similar to the way in which they deliver the prophecies to Macbeth, though these are rather less promising, finishing by listing methods of death:

Fra the sisters had seene the shape of that shit,

‘Little lucke bee thy lot, there where thou lyes.

Thy fowmart face,’ quoith the first, ‘to flyt sal be fit.’

‘Nicneuin,’ quoith the next, ‘sall norish thee twyse;

To ride post to Elphin nane abler nor it.’

‘To drive dogs but to drit,’ the third can devyse:

‘All thy day sall thou bee of an bodie bot a bit.

Also such is this sentence, as sharpe is thy syse.’

Syne duelie they deemde, what death it sould die. 

The first said, ‘surelie of a shot;’

The second, ‘of a running knot;’

The third, ‘be throwing of the throate,

Like a tyke ouer a tree.

With this the Weird Sisters depart, but for all their raw-mouthed reviling and terrible curses, they are still somehow portrayed as not especially evil by the standards of the piece- it is, by contrast, the hellish figures who look after Polwarth that are considered really demonic. Almost immediately after the sisters’ departure, Nicnevin appears on the scene, surrounded by her ‘nymphs’, importantly identified as witches and something approaching fairy., and it is these figures who decide to nurture Polwarth. Thus into the late sixteenth century, though the weird sisters could be omens of ill, and were thoroughly foul-mouthed in at least one particular piece of literature, they are explicitly considered different from witches and even somewhat detached from the fairy world. Whether an indication of a more general presence of the weird sisters in Scottish folklore or not though, Montgomerie’s use of the weird sisters as a literary device is an important representation of the characters outside of the Macbeth legend, and throws a different light onto the representation of the weirds in Scottish culture several decades before their most famous appearance in Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.

This post is (unfortunately) not a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the texts mentioned, however, it does give something of an introduction to the few appearances of the weird sisters in Scottish literature and elsewhere prior to Shakespeare’s play.   Their place in a wider European tradition and links to the Fates of continental mythology, perhaps with a dash of native Celtic and Germanic influence, or the evolution of their role in the Macbeth legend from fleeting walk-on roles in a dream to taking on the mantle of witchcraft in Shakespeare, or their important appearance in literature without Macbeth as contrasted to their possible role in wider folk tradition- all are very interesting aspects of the mysterious legend of the weird sisters.
