The book itself is fine however, once one attempts to summon or try a invocation that's when things can get pretty dicy. NO ONE should attempt anything. It should be only for knowledge and study purposes only. People don't realize how easy it is to open wrong doors when becoming to involved with this subject. But I'm sure this warning will just fall on deaf ears. It's usually too late once they realize they have messed with forces beyond they're ken.
The Key of Solomon, in Latin Clavis Salomonis or Clavicula Salomonis, Hebrew Mafteah Shelomoh (מפתח שלמה), is a grimoire, or book on magic, attributed to King Solomon, probably dating to the 14th to 15th century Italian Renaissance and presenting a typical example of Renaissance and magic. The Lesser Key of Solomon, or the Goetia, is a medieval magickal text that claims to give the techniques and materials needed to embark on the mystical path of Solomon. It gives directions for casting magick circles, and invoking demons and dark Djinn into the consciousness of the magician. Here like Solomon the magician must unleash the demon from the brass vessel and symbolically slay the demon with a magical sword. Like the Djinn trapped in the magick lamp, the demon may also grant the wishes and desires of the magician, but it is the test of fortitude for the magician to resist these temptations and expel the demon from his mind.
These are from what I know, ancient hebrew spells, rooted in hebrew mysticism. Solomon the wise king of Isreal, son of David supposedly used the magic formulae laid down in the Clavicles to gain power over Demons. For example, he is reputed to have cast a spell to put the Demon Asmodeus into submission and make him build the Temple of Solomon. At the end of Solomons life He spoke in jibjerish and no one heeded his calling until his death. This was a very sad end for one who thought it was okay to walk with only 1 foot in God's Word. And all because he heeded the invitations of his foreign wife who had nothing to do with our God all powerful creator of the Heavens and Earth. He did what he should not. when he summoned Samuel, He was rebuked.
A demon is believed to be a force that can be conjured and controlled. They are also believed to have the ability to possess or inhabit the body of humans and the only way to rid the person of them is to conduct deliverance and/or Exorcism. Demons are portrayed differently in different cultures. Some believe demons to be actual physical beings that can take the form of anything, including animals. Others consider the real demons as more of a spiritual force of evil battling for one's soul. They have been feared and written about in almost every culture in one form or another. Any type of summoning will put you in the line of fire. You will not be able to control whatever you happen to conjur. The risks are too dangerous.
What Is Black/Dark Magic?
Black magic has traditionally referred to the use of supernatural powers or magic for eviland selfish purposes. With respect to the left-hand path and right-hand path dichotomy, black magic is the malicious, left-hand counterpart of benevolent white magic. In modern times, some find that the definition of "black magic" has been convoluted by people who define magic or ritualistic practices that they disapprove of as "black magic".
According to the bible God despises witchcraft and black magic. Many commands, beginning in the Old Testament, forbid any association with witchcraft or sorcery. Deuteronomy 18:10says, “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft.” Exodus 22:18says, “You shall not permit a sorceress to live.” When God removed Saul from his position as king of Israel, He compared Saul’s behavior to the evil of sorcery. Through the prophet Samuel, the Lord said, “Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols” (1 Samuel 15:23). Many other Old Testament passages condemn witchcraft in its many forms (Micah 3:7; 5:12; 2 Kings 21:6; Leviticus 19:26, 31; Deuteronomy 18:14).
Lying is Satan's main weapon against God’s children. He uses the tactic of deceit to separate people from their heavenly Father. The most common lie is "there is no God,” “God doesn’t care about you,” “the Bible cannot be trusted,” But we must remember the apostle Paul tells us that Satan “masquerades as an angel of light” so that what he says and does sounds good and seems reasonable. Another example would be "familiar spirits" demons masquerading as your past love one in order to get a foothold into your life. Of course they would know exactly what to say that only your grandmother would know and they could appear to look like you're lost and dearly departed. The Bible warns us to "be aware of the familiar spirit"
Many as I spoke of before are attempting to summon these entities which causes me great concern. With a few new TV shows and a few new movies with this type of stuff is having a big influence on people. So many of the newer shows are centered around dark magic. A new show called "The Originals" seems to be a spinoff from "The Vampire Diaries". There is a new Insidious movie (part 3) coming to theaters soon. It is very disturbing from what I can see from the commercials it is just not healthy, these type of movies and TV are just not healthy. I understand it is a entertainment thing but the problem is people in real life try to emulate the events that take place during such "entertainment". I hope my article help shed some light regarding these books and the dangers that they can present.
If you feel you have inadvertently opened wrong doors due to becoming obsessed with the books regarding demons or possession and the Devil is attacking you with fears, worries, anxiety etc., you can pray in the Name of Jesus and resist and overcome him!--Jesus said, "Behold, I give you power over all the power of the Enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."-Luke 10:19. This power is YOURS if you believe His Word, claim His promises and pray in the Name of Jesus! In fact, if you are filled with faith and His Holy Spirit, you have the authority to resist the Devil directly, just like Jesus and His early disciples did.
