An Understanding of Today’s Altars by Taswell Alexander




Daniel 12:4 “4  But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God’s purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great.”


Over the years the Holy Spirit has graciously revealed many hidden elements unto us concerning satanic altars. We never would have been able to tear down these satanic altars if it were not for the wisdom and insight that the LORD gave unto us.  However, the Bible reminds us that iniquity shall abound and evil shall become more evil!  The Daniel prophecy tells us that “many shall run to and fro”, which means that in the end times, many will have the ability and the opportunity to travel from continent to continent.  The prophecy also tells us that “knowledge shall be increased”, which means that as people of the occult travel from continent to continent, they will merge, mix, and fuse their witchcraft and magic arts with different pagan cultures.  They will share knowledge so that their sorceries will become even more powerful, potent, and extremely deadly.


So even though in the past, we have dealt effectively with ancient satanic altars, I believe that for these times, we have a need for new revelation and a better understanding of all occultic altars that are raised up today and also those that will be raised up in the future.  Please understand that in no way am I trying to nullify or devalue the powerful and effective studies that have already been done on this subject. The schemes of Satan and his kingdom of darkness are becoming more sophisticated.  Many altars have succeeded in opening up spiritual portals, which allow people to communicate with demon spirits in their search for knowledge of ancient methods of the craft.  And even though their works may still look raw and primitive, they are also making use of advanced technology. It is extremely dangerous when agents of Satan possess the ability to blend occultic elements of the past and the present.  The kingdom of darkness is aware that their works are deadly and has deep ancient foundations – just look at what Ecclesiastes Chapter One teaches us, take note especially of verses nine and ten:


Ecclesiastes 1:3-14 “3  What profit does man have left from all his toil at which he toils under the sun? [Is life worth living?] 4  One generation goes and another generation comes, but the earth remains forever. 5  The sun also rises and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises. 6  The wind goes to the south and circles about to the north; it circles and circles about continually, and on its circuit the wind returns again. 7  All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place from which the rivers come, to there and from there they return again. 8  All things are weary with toil and all words are feeble; man cannot utter it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9  The thing that has been—it is what will be again, and that which has been done is that which will be done again; and there is nothing new under the sun.

10  Is there a thing of which it may be said, See, this is new? It has already been, in the vast ages of time [recorded or unrecorded] which were before us. 11  There is no remembrance of former happenings or men, neither will there be any remembrance of happenings of generations that are to come by those who are to come after them. 12  I, the Preacher, have been king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13  And I applied myself by heart and mind to seek and search out by [human] wisdom all human activity under heaven. It is a miserable business which God has given to the sons of man with which to busy themselves. 14  I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity, a striving after the wind and a feeding on wind.”


Below is a brief commentary that I found in the Dickson Teachers Bible:


NO NEW THING: Life is only a passing vapor during which one encounters that which has been experienced by thousands before him. That which is “new” is new only to the next generation who is yet to experience the wonders of GOD’s Creation. Advances may be made in science and technology, but the basic human spirit remains unchanged throughout time.


Many times we are so overwhelmed and driven back into a defeatist attitude because we see things and we hear things that we may never have experienced in spiritual warfare before.  Sometimes the unfathomable brutality of certain occultic blood altars will certainly shake our spirits and make our stomachs turn inside out! GOD’s prophets and apostles dealt very much with the same conflict situations that we are dealing with now – the difference I presume may be that knowledge has increased.  The advantage for the Church is that as knowledge has increased for the kingdom of darkness, so knowledge and revelation has also increased for the Body of Messiah.  We received spiritual authority, spiritual ranking, and the most powerful anointing from our Father … attributes that the kingdom of darkness cannot match! 


Unfortunately, authority is something that believers sometimes easily hand over during times of distress.  I understand that I walk under authority, but I am also a man of spiritual authority and therefore I don’t easily give my authority away.


The Prophet Elijah and The Prophets of Baal.


In the Book of 1 Kings Chapter 17, the prophet Elijah boldly approached King Ahab and said that there will be no rain nor dew in Israel except at his word.  GOD then told Elijah to flee to the Brook Cherith, and then to Sidon – after three years, the LORD instructed him to return to Israel.  Elijah met Obadiah and told him to bring King Ahab to him. The prophet invited the king, the 450 Baal prophets, and the 400 prophets of Asherah and the people of Israel to meet him at Mount Carmel … but he never invited Jezebel!  When they met at Mount Carmel, Elijah instructed the prophets of Baal to “go first” – to dress their altar and to perform their ritual. Elijah allowed them to continue until just before the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice – then it was Elijah’s turn. He took twelve stones (which represented the Twelve Tribes of Israel) and he first repaired the LORD’s Altar which was torn down.  He was trying to restore the torn down, broken down altar which was a bitter testimony of the broken covenant between Israel and GOD.  And the prophet Elijah then prayed to GOD and GOD responded with fire from heaven!  The prophet Elijah was the only man in the Bible who called down fire three times (1 Kings 18:38, 2 Kings 1:10, 2 Kings 1:12) and even a chariot of fire and horses of fire came to escort the prophet to heaven (2 Kings 2:11). 


What we learn from this public “power encounter” is that the prophet of GOD dictated the terms of engagement.  He destroyed Israel’s agricultural sector with the drought that he himself prophesied and he weakened the Babylonian occultic worship system, because for three years no witch, witchdoctor or sorcerer could successfully raise up an altar and perform their rituals to call down rain!  He chose whom to invite, he chose the venue, he instructed them how to dress the altar and he gave the Baal prophets first privilege to perform their rituals.  All the time, the prophet Elijah was in control.  The Babylonian occultic altars were weakened by a spiritual warfare program that began three years earlier!


1 Kings 17:1 “ELIJAH THE Tishbite, of the temporary residents of Gilead, said to Ahab, As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, before Whom I stand, there shall not be dew or rain these years but according to My word.”


When Elijah said unto Ahab, “As the LORD GOD of Israel lives, before whom I stand” he was actually saying that he was constantly in prayer before the throne room of the most High GOD.  We learn from this verse and from Elijah’s lifestyle that he definitely was a man of prayer.  When he said, “there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” Elijah had faith and confidence to speak because he had the most powerful Godly anointing in his time and a very high supernatural ranking in the spirit realm and therefore he could stand before a man who had the ranking of a king and who was the highest political authority in the land. 


Elijah’s faith was attached to his knowledge of the Torah (the first five Books in the Bible – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy).  He knew that hundreds of years before YHVH (GOD) had already spoken of the consequences of Israel’s disobedience or obedience.  Scriptures confirmed prophecy therefore Elijah’s prophetic words gave authority for the famine to manifest in the natural realm in Israel.


Leviticus 26:3-4, 18-20 “3  If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and do them, 4  I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit. 18  And if in spite of all this you still will not listen and be obedient to Me, then I will chastise and discipline you seven times more for your sins. 19  And I will break and humble your pride in your power, and I will make your heavens as iron [yielding no answer, no blessing, no rain] and your earth [as sterile] as brass.  20  And your strength shall be spent in vain, for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.”


Deuteronomy 28:23 “23  The heavens over your head shall be brass and the earth under you shall be iron.


When he said, “but according to my word”, he was making it clear to the king that it does not matter to whom he goes to for deliverance.  No one could help him.  No prophet, sorcerer, magician, spiritist, medium or any other person had the power to nullify the prophetic words spoken by the prophet.  It didn’t really matter what heavenly programming was already done by the occult.  Irrespective of any satanic incantations that may have been fastened to any solar cycle, lunar cycle or any planetary alignments, Elijah is teaching us today that GOD endowed him with the power and the authority to close and to open the heavens!  We also have the power and the authority to destroy every satanic altar whether in the heavens above or on the earth beneath.


Some of the most important key factors that we need to take note of, is that the prophet Elijah had a lifestyle of prayer and intercession, but not only was he an intercessor, but he was also a shrewd strategist who knew how to operate in the spirit realm.  He understood the nature of his prophetic mantle and he stood in covenant with YHVH (GOD).  His powerful ministry was filled with angelic attendance (1 Kings 19:5-7 and 2 Kings 1:15) and he was bold and fearless.  He had an understanding of the authority and the ranking that he possessed, but he also understood the satanic power that his enemy Jezebel possessed.  We have to have knowledge and information about our enemy and the demonic structures. Elijah even had knowledge and information about how many prophets of Baal and how many prophets of Asherah there was!


In Elijah’s prayer we learn one of the purposes for this power encounter was to turn the hearts of the people back to the worship of YHVH (GOD).  When the Fire of YHVH burnt Elijah’s altar the people of Israel fell down and worshipped and they declared – “YHVH, He is GOD! YHVH, He is GOD!” When the people made that prophetic declaration it considerably strengthened the worship of the LORD GOD of Abraham again!


When Jezebel murdered GOD’s prophets, she was trying to destroy the prophetic ministry. When GOD gave victory to Elijah at Mount Carmel, Elijah took the prophets of Baal down to the river Kishon and he slew all the prophets of Baal there and this considerably weakened the Babylonian religion!  Please note that in this story two altars played a powerful role in determining victory for the Kingdom of GOD over the kingdom of darkness. The occultists could not access their god through their altar, but Elijah succeeded in accessing our Father through his altar!


When Jezebel heard what Elijah had done to the satanic prophets she became furious, but she didn’t just rave and rant like a crazy person, but she raised an altar to her gods and she spoke an incantation of death over the prophet Elijah.  Jezebel said in the message that her gods should do to her, and more also if she didn’t kill Elijah the next day at about the same time.


1 Kings 19:1-2 “AHAB TOLD Jezebel all that Elijah had done and how he had slain all the prophets [of Baal] with the sword. 2  Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.”


Jezebel was a witch and she knew how to perform witchcraft rituals.  She made a covenant of death with the gods against Elijah – this altar of death was so powerful that she even applied a time frame, “by tomorrow about this time.”


When Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, the KJV Bible says, “And when he saw that, he arose …”  It is my understanding that if Jezebel had sent a messenger with a verbal message, the Bible should have said, “And when he heard that”.  And if Jezebel had sent a messenger with a written message on a scroll, then the Bible should have said, “And when he read that …”  I believe that Elijah saw with his spiritual sight that Jezebel had raised up an altar of death against him!


1 Kings 19:3 “3  Then he was afraid and arose and went for his life and came to Beersheba of Judah [over eighty miles, and out of Jezebel’s realm] and left his servant there.”


This Queen established a very powerful altar to kill this prophet, but YHVH (GOD) did not allow it.  In the New Testament, in the Book of Acts, Chapter 23, we find forty Jews forming a covenant not to eat or to drink anything until they have murdered the apostle Paul. This altar of death was also unsuccessful, because YHVH (GOD) again did not allow that! 


Acts 23:12 “12  Now when daylight came, the Jews formed a plot and bound themselves by an oath and under a curse neither to eat nor drink till they had done away with Paul.”


Blood altars of today.


Recently a very gruesome murder was committed to a young pregnant woman in Bonteheuwel – her eyes were cut out, her breasts were cut off and her womb was cut open and the fetus removed.  Some of that which was removed from the body was still found on the scene where the body lay.  Sometimes a satanic altar is established through a ritual killing like this and usually the body parts or organs are laid out in a certain order and sometimes it is not laid out in any specific order.  There are also times a brutal slaying may not even be a part of the ritual killing.


Following is an excerpt[1] from “At The Heart Of Darkness – Witchcraft, Black Magic And Satanism Today”.  John Parker has been an investigative journalist and he wrote about Gerald Gardiner, who was leader of a Wiccan coven in England during the Second World War:


This coven used magic rituals to try and keep Hitler from invading England and they decided to be 100% effective they will have to offer a human sacrifice.  It is said that the oldest and frailest member of the coven volunteered to die during the ritual, set for what proved to be the coldest May night in many years.  According to Francis King … all but the frail old man were covered with an ointment, which was in reality a heavy grease used among other things to keep the body warm.  The coven was also known to use a hallucinogen, the fly agaric mushroom, which could only be eaten in exceedingly small dosages … the old volunteer duly collapsed and died, it is not known whether it was from an overdose of mushrooms, over-exhaustion or the cold.  The great sacrifice has been made and the potency of their magic could have been enhanced when two other members died of pneumonia in the next two weeks.


There’s also another account of this event from another source in an interview of novelist Louis Wilkinson by Francis King:


On at least one occasion the Hampshire witches (meaning Gardiner’s coven) indulged in human sacrifice — but done in such a way that there should not be any legal unpleasantness.


In the above-mentioned articles I am trying to show that blood is not always shed on satanic altars.  The Hampshire witches established an altar to try and prevent the German invasion in England.  They offered a human sacrifice to give power to their altar, but no blood was shed. In fact, they cunningly performed this ritual in such a way that it seemed that natural causes were the cause of death!  Can you imagine how many people were sacrificed in such a way that it was not obvious to the public that it was sacrificial offerings … have you considered how many family members and friends may have died a death that may have been induced by the occult?  All we are usually told is that the person died of natural causes!


The person/s involved in this murder in Bonteheuwel could very well even be a D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder) and/or S.R.A. (Satanic Ritual Abuse) victim, who may have been programmed with alternate personalities.  The person/s may not even know what they did or why they did it.  Either way, the enemy succeeded in executing his initial plan to establish an altar. 


The manner how this body was mutilated tells us a lot. The cutting off of the breasts and the removal of the fetus could have something to do with fertility.  The woman is the one designed by GOD to bear nations in her womb.  Remember In Genesis 25:23, Rebekah was pregnant with twins and when the babies struggled together within her womb she prayed to the LORD and the LORD said to her that she has two nations inside of her womb.  I believe it is the fertility of the woman and every pregnancy that is carried to full term that is a “clear and present danger” to the god of this world. 

I believe that the only “pregnancies” that are not a threat to Satan’s plans are the demonically-birthed hybrids (called Nephilim[2]), that are not human, and therefore can not be saved.


In the Book of Exodus, Chapter 1, Pharaoh killed all the male babies because he feared that the Children of Israel was multiplying too fast and that they were becoming too mighty. In the Book of Matthew, Chapter 2, King Herod became troubled when he heard about the birth of a new king.  Afterwards, he ordered the murders of every male child the age of two years old and under.  In both cases, Satan was trying desperately to kill off the priesthood and he mistakenly thought that he could destroy the future bloodline of the seed of the woman! In both instances, mass human sacrifices (with a lot of blood) were offered to Satan.  Remember, Pharaoh ordered that all the babies that they kill should be thrown into the Nile River – this act of human sacrifice was worship to the Egyptians’ Nile god.


Today, with all the miscarriages, abortions, murders, suicides, accidents, civil uprising and wars, the enemy is again attempting to kill off the priesthood.  From experience, I can testify that there are much more males than females sitting in wheelchairs, and three of the main causes are car accidents, diving accidents, and shooting accidents.  To many of us, an accident is just an accident because we look at the physical and not at the spiritual, hence the Body of Messiah’s inability to discern occultic altars of death around us.  In the month of August 2011, a school bus in Hermanus plunged into a river and fourteen children were killed … almost during the same time the year before (2010), a taxi filled with schoolchildren was hit by a train on a junction crossing in Brackenfell, which caused the deaths of many children. Again, a few years ago a bus filled with schoolchildren from Strandfontein plunged into the sea on the Atlantic coastline and many children died.  I believe that these accidents were satanic offerings of young children.


Renowned Satanist Aleister Crowley wrote in his book, Magick In Theory And Practice:


The blood is the life … any living thing is the storehouse of energy … at the death of the animal this energy is liberated suddenly. The animal should therefore be killed within the Circle, or Triangle, so that its energy cannot escape … For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim with the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.


This is another very important element of sacrificial blood altars that we fail to recognize – the fact that energy is harnessed whenever blood is shed.  In Scripture, the Father teaches us that we should refrain from drinking blood because the life is in the blood … note, the kingdom of darkness are also aware of this phenomenon.  I wonder what happens when a human being with the energy of a human being harnesses and receives the energy of an animal that was just sacrificed.


In the Book of Leviticus, Chapter 4, we read about GOD’s Instructions to Moses concerning the duties of the priest when dealing with sin offerings.  In this Chapter, there are five references that are made to the priest that pours out the blood of the animal at the bottom of the altar.  When a blood altar is erected today in a public place, no provision is made for the blood.  The priests ministering at these altars are not godly anointed priests, and the only authority that they have is satanic authority.  When the blood of the body is released, whether it may be human or animal, the life that is in the blood and the energy of that body is being released into the atmosphere.  How many people who walk by this altar, or live in the area, will be spiritually touched by this? Therefore it is important that we seal those areas with the Blood of Messiah Y’shua (Jesus Christ), and in that way, silence the voice of the blood that is crying out.


In 2 Kings Chapter 3, the Bible teaches us exactly how powerful an occult altar is when a human sacrifice is offered. Mesha the Moabite king used to pay 100, 000 sheep and 100, 000 rams to King Ahab, but when King Ahab died, the Moabite king rebelled against the new king.  King Jehoram then asked King Jehoshaphat (the king of Judah) and the king of Edom to go with him into battle against the king of Moab.  When these three kings and their armies went into battle, they destroyed the Moabite cities. The king of Moab realized that he was losing the war, and so he sacrificed his eldest son on the wall of the city – after this, the Bible says that “great wrath came over Israel and they were turned back”. This Moabite king ritually murdered his own son to invoke (summon, petition, appeal) demonic assistance in the battle against these three kings and their powerful military! He was also the executive commander and the chief military strategist of his country – when he saw that he was losing the battle in the physical realm, he changed tactics.  This Moabite king applied satanic spiritual principles and he transferred the warfare from the natural realm into the supernatural realm.  With this ceremonial murder of his firstborn son, he erected a very powerful blood altar unto Satan and changed the outcome of the battle in his favor!


Kramats in the Western Cape


I believe that we fail to recognize the spiritual importance of Islamic Kramats, which are the tombs of Muslim holy men, nobles, sultans. Most of these men were important political prisoners – most were slaves brought into Cape Town from countries like Batavia, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Morocco, the Eastern Islands, and so forth.  The slave trade in Cape Town also caused the bloodline of the Khoi to mix with the bloodline of foreign nations!


Below is more information from the “Footsteps To Freedom Winter”[3] lecture, 21 May 2003:


If one wants to understand why Islam took such hold at the Cape, one has only to think a moment of what it means to be a slave – torn from one's home and family, isolated, often unable to talk to anyone. These were people desperately in need of spiritual sustenance, and roots. The first they found in Islam … the second they created in the ring of Kramats which were built round Cape Town. Kramats are the burial places of religious leaders. The greatest in Cape Town is that of Sheikh Yusuf at Faure; the most accessible are on Signal Hill … there are a third group at Oudekraal. The burial places of political prisoners are sometimes not known, and these were revealed to believers through visions. Gradually a ring of these graves encircled Cape Town, making Cape Town in itself a holy place for Cape Muslims – grounding, rooting the slaves and their descendants in the Peninsula. Now, before Cape Muslims go on haj to Mecca, they will make a pilgrimage to these shrines.


According to research, I found that there is a lot of spiritual activity around these Islamic burial locations.  Some of these men were highly skilled in the mystical side of Islam. Legend has it that some had the ability to walk on water and one could walk through locked cell doors.  It is reported that these dead human spirits regularly come up from their graves.  These shrines of dead holy men is a very powerful stronghold surrounding Cape Town and those that are involved in mysticism and magic visit these shrines to gain knowledge of the usage of different herbs and plant roots with the purpose of developing potions for healing and so forth.


Below is an excerpt from a book produced by The Cape Mazaar (Kramat) Society –“Kramats in the Western Cape” (page 11):


It is said that 250 years ago a prophecy was made that there would be a “circle of Islam” around the Cape.  According to local beliefs the circle is complete, comprising the tombs of Saints and Auliyah (friends of Allah) who were brought as slaves to the Cape.  It starts at the old cemetery on the slopes of Signal Hill, just above the quarry in Strand Street, where two saintly men lie buried, the circle continues to two graves on the top of Signal Hill.  The circle then continues at a grave much revered, situated above Oudekraal beyond Camps Bay, and sweeps around the mountain to a Kramat at Constantia, on the Tokai Road.


The circle proceeds to the most important and widely known of all tombs, the Kramat of Sheikh Yusuf at Faure, on the farm Zandvlei.  The circle is completed by an old tomb on Robben Island.”


Strategically the spirit of the Bondswoman has encircled Cape Town with the shrines of dead religious leaders who used to be men of power and stature!  The priests of the land will have to deal with these altars with sanctified and cleansed bloodlines, because we are dealing with extremely powerful dead human spirits!


Amazingly there are twenty-three Kramats surrounding us – I didn’t know this until I read the book!  For the purposes of information, I have listed all twenty-three Kramats including locations. Note, sometimes more than one name is listed because they were not really sure of the real identity and sometimes one person had two names and at other times there are more than one grave at one location.

The Sun Altars of our First Nation (Khoi) Ancestors


Some of the most dangerous altars are the sun altars of our First Nation (Khoi) ancestors that are still located on Table Mountain and Signal Hill here in Cape Town.  These are ancient altars that are centuries old and are still being used by the occult even today.  These stone temples and altars on the mountains have a lot of astronomical significance to the people who built them, as the altars are laid out in precise mathematical order.  These altars are generally connected and aligned with the heavenly bodies like the sun, moon, stars and the planets. The altars are positioned in such a way that they catch the rays and shadows that the sun casts at certain times of the day, which are very important to pagan worshippers. Those in the occult also believe that mountains possess magical properties. Below is some more information from the book “Africa Come forth Out Of Bondage” by Kanaan Ministries:


Mountains around the world are home to some of humankind's most important sacred places. For example:


  • Japan’s inscrutable Mount Fujiyama,
  • South Africa’s Table Mountain,
  • Peru’s Machu Picchu,
  • The Asian Himalayas in which are located thousands of Buddhist Temples,


According to Credo Mutwa, ancient people in Southern Africa transported their sick to the top of mountains, where the air was purer and protected the ill against further infection and disease. Within sacred texts throughout the ages, mountains have been portrayed as being holy places where heaven meets earth and where people can ascend to the “higher” realms and communicate with “god”.


Mountains were a symbol of eternity, purity, stability and ambition … a place where deities lived or manifested themselves, especially when their high peaks were covered by clouds.


Table Mountain was known to the First Nation (Khoi) as Hu-gais, meaning “veiled in clouds”. Some examples of sacred mountains include:


  • Moses received the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai,
  • Messiah ascended to Heaven from the Mount of Olives,
  • In China, the World Mountain – Kunlan – was a symbol of harmony and order, and a top dwelling place of immortals and of the “Supreme Being”,
  • Fujiyama in Japan is a sacred site of Shinto pilgrimage,
  • Mount Tlaloc in Central Mexico was seen as a personification of rain and the fertility god,


We now have a better understanding why the occult would want to build their altars on the highest possible locations.


This sun worship of our First Nation (Khoi) ancestors was unfortunately transferred through centuries of generational bloodlines.  Today, we will find that the Coloured men in South Africa are actively and intensely involved in sun worship.  The prison “numbers” system is a powerful strongman that is a ruling spirit in every prison and almost every Coloured community and it has been like that for many years.  I want to focus only on the three major groups in prison that are sun worshipers – the 28 Gang, the 27 Gang, and the 26 Gang.  The 28 Gang worships the sun as it goes down (Sundown), the 27 Gang and the 26 Gang both worship the sun as it rises in the morning (Sunup).  They are respectively identified as going “sundown” and going “sunup”.  These groups even have their beds arranged according to the setting and the rising of the sun!


These groups also have their own brand of prison language, which is called “Salombom” and it was developed many years ago so that the English, the Portuguese and the Dutch would not understand it.  Every single day from sunrise to sundown to sunrise, they speak this language into the atmosphere – it doesn’t really matter whether they are inside of the prison or on the outside in the community.  These occultic words that are declared every day are like gridlines in the spirit – these word-gridlines are like lines that connect in the spiritual realm all across South Africa!  Islam also makes declarations five times a day into the spiritual realm, and thrones of dominion are being established.  Our assignment is to counter these false declarations of the Numbers and cleanse the atmosphere.


Whenever the sun worshipping gangsters speak their occultic language, then their words spiritually connect to the First Nation (Khoi) sun altars on the mountains, and their words are attached to heavenly bodies through access of these pagan mountain altars.  We have seen in the previous article that the occult views mountains as sacred high places where they can have closer contact with their gods.


Every day when “sunup” and “sundown” gangsters perform their rituals, they are actually feeding and strengthening Babylonian demonic structures in the spirit realm.  What we don’t understand is that these rituals take place in our communities, where church services, open-air services, and prayer meetings are being held. That is why the Body of Messiah has been struggling for so many years to bring in a full harvest!  Sometimes the local Body becomes involved in peace negotiations, and the Body may even succeed in achieving a peace agreement between rival gangs, but many times the peace will not last.  Even though some of these gangsters may really want peace, it is extremely difficult for them, because many of them have already participated in blood altars and many are in covenant with Death and Hades!


A brief Report on Gang Altars in South Africa.


Wherever gangs meet on a regular basis, like a house or a nightclub, that meeting place could be seen as an altar to a particular gang. They may be hanging out in a specific house which may or may not belong to one of the gang leaders or gang members. If the gang members are involved in drug dealing, drug use, sexual activities (like rape or homosexual acts), and even “roundtable” discussions on that premises, then that premises becomes a high place to them. Even a nightclub can become their altar if it is a nightclub that they frequently visit, a place where the gang exercises power and authority over that particular property. The LORD told Joshua that everywhere that he will put his foot, that place shall be given to him. The ground recognized his feet and a covenant were established with Joshua and the soil, so also gangsters can covenant with the ground when they frequently gather in one place.


In the 1980s, the Strandfontein Pavilion became a regular gathering place for different gangs on the Cape Flats, especially on a Sunday afternoon. This pavilion was on the beach – this could signify the establishment of a major marine altar and a continual connection between gangsters and water spirits. Many gang fights and rapes took place there. Also in the 1980s, my former gang, the “Ugly Americans”, was a regular patron at the Goodwood Ice Ring – that place was an altar and powerbase to us. We constantly fought with other gangs for our territory, we burgled the place whenever we wanted to, and I was even an Ice Marshal[4] for some time. We exercised a lot of power and authority on that premises. The ice ring is a frozen pool of water so whenever we skated on that ice, we were constantly connected to water and water spirits. I just wonder now whether Satan used my former gang to establish a marine altar to “legally” prepare the ground for the construction of the Grand West Casino!


The sinful and perverted sexual activities and bloodshed on those premises becomes the sacrifices that gangsters offer unto Satan. Soul sacrifices are not uncommon or unfamiliar to gangs, so it really is not difficult to service such gang altars.


The southern beach shoreline between Strandfontein, Mnandi and Monwabisi Beach has been a secret “graveyard” that gangsters used to dump and bury the bodies of their victims. That means kilometers of white sandy beaches have become altars to the spirits of death. Can a person spiritually conclude that all the drownings over the years at these locations happened as a result of the powerful altars of death that gangsters have erected there over the years? Again these altars are found near to water.


The altars of drug users differ considerably because there are many drug users that do not belong to a gang, and not all gangsters are drug users. Most drug users have a spot in their place of residence that they usually use when they practice their drug habit. It could be a bedroom in the house, a Wendy house, or small shed in the backyard. In this particular room you will usually find a few items of importance to the drug user – a candle, a box of matches or a lighter, newspaper, a broken bottleneck (the “pipe”), an ashtray and an old bowl, bucket or empty paint tin for spitting. The room that would be used when smoking drugs could be seen as the drug user’s altar and the above-mentioned items could be described as items on the altar.  There is always a ritual involved in the process of preparation. And the drug ritual seldom changes when the user prepares the drugs for consumption.


Drug altars are also very powerful because they open up portals where demons are activated to operate. These altars also activate mind control and hallucination as a result of drug use. How much more powerful when a drug altar is raised in the same location where a gang altar has already been erected? Can you imagine the flurry of demonic activity and control in these places and with the people involved?


Sometimes when we ask GOD Almighty to send angels to protect the gates of a city, we sometimes forget that thousands of these gang and drug altars “legally” open up spiritual gateways that allow powerful and influential demonic spirits to operate! I know that the majority of gangsters and drug users are unaware of the roles they play in the raising of spiritual altars. Witches would perform rituals to summon and release blood demons over the Cape Flats, and violent gang groups would be stirred to enter into another gang war, unaware that they are unwittingly maintaining satanic blood altars. I remember when I was a gangster there would be a time that I would go for two weeks without a fight. After two weeks, I would feel this urge inside of me to fight … I needed to shed blood! Even if I found myself in a nightclub where there were no rival gangsters and only fellow “Ugly American” gang members, I would still itch to start a fight, even if I could only punch someone so that his nose would bleed, then I would be satisfied. As long as blood would flow, then the spirit would be appeased.


Another way Satan uses gangsters to raise altars would be altars of sexual iniquity. A gangster will perform sexual sin on the grounds of a church and so establish a sexual altar on those church grounds. Afterwards a spirit of adultery, fornication, or other sexual perversion may enter and oppress that particular congregation, without anybody knowing that a sexual altar was established some night by an unwitting gangster. I know this because I personally did this at the grounds of three different churches in Bonteheuwel when I was still a gangster!


The spirit of homosexuality is a very powerful principality with very powerful and influential political and religious backing.  Cape Town has many homosexual nightclubs, and sometimes they are even clustered together in one street.  Cecil John Rhodes was one of the most powerful diamond and gold mining magnates, a Master Freemason and a homosexual in South Africa.  In Cape Town on the slopes of Devil’s Peak Mountain, on the side of Rondebosch and Mowbray, a huge monument dedicated to Cecil John Rhodes, was built – it is called “The Rhodes Memorial”. 


The memorial[5] is situated at Rhodes’ favorite spot on the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak.  Rhodes’ own wooden bench is still situated below the memorial.  The magnificent view facing northeast can be imagined as the start of the Cape to Cairo road.  The architect, Sir Herbert Baker, allegedly modeled the monument after the Greek temple at Segesta, although it is actually closer to the temple of Pergamon in design.  It consists of a massive staircase with forty-nine steps (one for each year of Rhodes’ life) leading from a semicircular terrace up to a rectangular U-shaped monument formed of pillars.  At the bottom of the steps is a bronze statue of a horseman, “Energy” by George Frederic Watts.  Eight bronze lions by John Macallan Swan flank the steps leading up to the memorial, with a bust of Rhodes.  The inscription on the monument is “To the spirit and life work of Cecil John Rhodes who loved and served South Africa”, together with a stanza from the 1902 poem “Burial” by Rudyard Kipling in honor of Rhodes.


In reference to the above mentioned information that the Rhodes monument is based upon the design of the temple of Zeus in Pergamon, let me then share the Word of GOD concerning the Church in this place:


Revelation 2:12-16 “12  Then to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Pergamum write: These are the words of Him Who has and wields the sharp two-edged sword: 13  I know where you live—a place where Satan sits enthroned. [Yet] you are clinging to and holding fast My name, and you did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed (martyred) in your midst—where Satan dwells. 14  Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: you have some people there who are clinging to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to set a trap and a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, [to entice them] to eat food that had been sacrificed to idols and to practice lewdness [giving themselves up to sexual vice]. 15  You also have some who in a similar way are clinging to the teaching of the Nicolaitans [those corrupters of the people] which thing I hate. 16  Repent [then]! Or else I will come to you quickly and fight against them with the sword of My mouth.”


Below is some more historical and religious information on this city taken out of the Fausset Dictionary:


HISTORY | Pergamos, to which the ancient writers also gave the neuter form of the name, was a city of Mysia of the ancient Roman province of Asia, in the Caicus valley, three miles from the river, and about fifteen miles from the sea. On the hill between these two streams the first city stood, and there also stood the acropolis, the chief temples, and theaters of the later city. Art and literature were encouraged, and in the city was a library of 200, 000 volumes which later Antony gave to Cleopatra. The books were of parchment which was here first used; hence, the word “parchment,” which is derived from the name of the town Pergamos. Of the structures which adorned the city, the most renowned was the altar of Zeus, which was forty foot in height, and also one of the wonders of the ancient world.


RELIGIONS | There were beautiful temples to the four great gods Zeus, Dionysus, Athena and Asklepios. To the temple of the latter, invalids from all parts of Asia flocked, and there, while they were sleeping in the court, the god revealed to the priests and physicians by means of dreams the remedies which were necessary to heal their maladies. Thus opportunities of deception were numerous. There was a school of medicine in connection with the temple. Pergamos was chiefly a religious center of the province. A title which it bore was “Thrice Neokoros,” meaning that in the city three temples had been built to the Roman emperors, in which the emperors were worshipped as gods. During the Byzantine times Pergamos still continued as a religious center, for there a bishop lived. However, the town fell into the hands of the Seljuks in 1304, and in 1336 it was taken by Suleiman, the son of Orkhan, and became Turkish. The modern name of the town, which is of considerable size, possessing 15 mosques, is Bergama, the Turkish corruption of the ancient name. One of its mosques is the early Byzantine church of Sophia. The modern town is built among the ruins of the ancient city, but is far less in extent. From 1879 to 1886 excavations among the ruins were conducted by Herr Humann at the expense of the German government. Among them are still to be seen the base of the altar of Zeus, the friezes of which are now in the Pergamon Museum, Berlin; theater, the agora, the gymnasium and several temples.


I would love to also include the poem “Burial”, written by Rudyard Kipling:


When that great kings return to clay,

Or emperors in their pride, Grief of a day shall fill a day,

Because its creature died.

But we—we reckon not with those,

Whom the mere Fates ordain,

This Power that wrought on us and goes Back to the Power again.

Dreamer devout, by vision led,

Beyond our guess or reach,

The travail of his spirit bred cities in place of speech.

So the all-mastering thought that drove,

So brief the term allowed,

Nations, not words, he linked to prove his faith before the crowd.


It is his will that he look forth,

Across the world he won,

The granite of the ancient North,

Great spaces washed with sun.

There shall he patient take his seat,

(As when the Death he dared),

And there await a people’s feet,

In the paths that he prepared.

There, till the vision he foresaw,

Splendid and whole arise,

And unimagined Empires draw,

To council ’neath his skies,

The immense and brooding Spirit still believe,

Shall quicken and control.

Living he was the land, and dead,

His soul shall be her soul!


A stanza of this poem by Rudyard Kipling (who was himself an English Freemason) is inscribed on the Rhodes monument.  The last line of that stanza   says: “Living he was the land, and dead, his soul shall be her soul!” Are the Freemasons declaring with these words that the soul of a homosexual shall become the soul of the land?  We have a homosexual spirit and a Freemason spirit brooding and watching over the city of Cape Town, and that is one of the reasons that the homosexual community operates with such freedom and so much “spiritual legal ground”.  I mistakenly thought this monument was just an altar, but now I understand that this is actually a temple!  A temple built on the design of another temple, the temple of Zeus in Pergamon!


It is amazing how many people would take their loved ones to one of these altars and temples, and picnic there, even taking photographs, not realizing they are threading on unholy ground.


I believe the homosexual spirit that operates inside a prison and also on the outside is being fed spiritually by this huge temple on the slopes of Devil’s Peak.  Too many heterosexual men, even married men in Cape Town, have already defiled themselves with homosexuals.  This temple has released too many sexually seductive demonic spirits over this province and that is why the Church has been struggling to bring homosexual people nearer to the Cross of Messiah Y’shua (Jesus Christ).


This is only a brief report on my understanding of gang altars – I know that there may be many other ex-gangsters who may have much more to say on this subject.


Following are some guideline prayer points to deal with dangerous altars:


FATHER, on behalf of the Body of Messiah, we ask Your Forgiveness for our sleepiness, our laziness, and our negligence in allowing these satanic altars to operate unhindered in the Body and in the cities.  We repent that we moved in ignorance and so many times, we foolishly rejected divine revelation.  In the Name of Messiah Y’shua, we pray for Your Grace and Your Mercies!


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, we pray that You may reveal unsearchable things unto us so that we may deal wisely with the altars of the past, the present and the future!


FATHER, please cleanse our bloodlines with Holy Spirit Fire and burn every spiritual and emotional soul tie so that we may be set free from all ancestral pagan altars!


FATHER, we thank You that You are the one that strengthens us to deal with these altars, because Psalm 18 says:


Psalm 18:32-33 “32  The God who girds me with strength and makes my way perfect? 33  He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.”


FATHER, we declare destruction over every satanic gridline in the atmosphere and we silence all occultic voices in the spirit realm and we declare Psalm 19:


Psalm 19 “THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. [Rom. 1:20, 21.] 2  Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge. 3  There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard. 4  Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun, [Rom. 10:18.] 5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course. 6  Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it. 7  The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the [whole] person; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 8  The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes. 9  The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10  More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb. 11  Moreover, by them is Your servant warned (reminded, illuminated, and instructed); and in keeping them there is great reward. 12  Who can discern his lapses and errors? Clear me from hidden [and unconscious] faults. 13  Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then shall I be blameless, and I shall be innocent and clear of great transgression. 14  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.”


FATHER, please release powerful angels to minister to us so that we will again restore Your Altar in South Africa, in the Name of Y’shua!


FATHER, we repent that in one way or another we may have participated in, celebrated, exalted or supported the 26 Gang, the 27 Gang, and the 28 Gang.  We renounce our involvement in the prison numbers system, and we ask Your Forgiveness in the Name of Y’shua.


FATHER, as a result of our involvement in the 26 Gang and the worship of money and Mammon, we repent that we always had to steal, take, or solicit money or valuables so that the number would be full (die nommer is vol).  We never understood the principles of “sowing and reaping”.  We just want to reap what other people sowed.  We renounce this mindset and we pray that You will deliver us from this teaching of the numbers in the Name of Y’shua.


FATHER, on behalf of the 26 Gang, the 27 Gang, the 28 Gang, the Big Five, the Air Force, the Desperados, and the Wild Geese, we repent that in prison we traded with the souls of weak men.  We repent that we are guilty of:


Joel 3:3 “3  And they have cast lots for My people, and have given a boy for a harlot and have sold a girl for juice [of the grape] and have drunk it.


In the Name of Y’shua, we ask for Your Forgiveness.


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, we petition You to restore and deliver every man and woman, boy and girl that was sold in prison and outside into sexual slavery.  Please deliver them from their utter pain and darkness.


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, we renounce these sexual altars in prison.  We declare that the Fire of the Holy Ghost will burn and destroy every sexual altar in the prisons until they have no more authority to operate.


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, on behalf of the 27 Gang, we repent that we held the office of the ones who maintained law and order between the 26 Gang and the 28 Gang.  We repent that we could “legally” shed the blood of others whenever gang regulations required it from us.  Please forgive us and deliver us from the sin of bloodshed.


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, we repent that we are all standing before You with defiled satanic priestly garments.  LORD, just like in the Book of Zechariah, we ask You to send Your Angels to remove the filthy garments stained with blood and may You give us holy mantles:


Zechariah 3:1-5 “1  THEN [the guiding angel] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before dthe Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at Joshua’s right hand to be his adversary and to accuse him. 2  And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan! Even the Lord, Who [now and habitually] chooses Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this [returned captive Joshua] a brand plucked out of the fire? [Jude 9.] 3  Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the Angel [of the Lord]. 4  And He spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And He said to [Joshua], Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with rich apparel. 5  And I [Zechariah] said, Let them put a clean turban on his head. So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with [rich] garments. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.”


FATHER, we repent that we moved in the Chinese spirit of Yin and Yang, the supposedly “light and dark” spirit.  So many of us were programmed by the devil with more than one personality, which gave us skills to commit crimes, because we could change from “evil” to " good”.  FATHER, please heal all our minds from mind fragmentation and every form of mind control and deprogram, even the gangsters from these mind altars. 


FATHER, we renounce the spirit of the law of the prison “numbers” system… the spirit of revenge, and the spirit of retribution by blood.  Laws and regulations are foundational to the structures of the numbers.  They don’t know the gift of grace, and therefore we pray that the ministry of Your Word will soak every prison with abundant grace and mercy!


FATHER, in the Name of Y’shua, we pray that You will use us as the sword of the LORD and the sword of Gideon to destroy all Babylonian altars and demonic structures in heavenly places!
