about

What is missing from the Christian concept of “trinity”? Carl Jung suggests that the fourth element is what many reject – the evil in our nature; or by another view, the feminine, which throughout Church history has been equated with evil and duly suppressed. To restore this element to the trinity creates Quaternity, which in William Blake’s Proverbs of Hell represents “the fourfold nature of man and his relationship to the divine.”

about

Sabbath Assembly

Sabbath Assembly is playing the hymns of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, an Apocalyptic religious sect from the late 60’s and early 70’s. The controversial theology of the church unites Jehovah, Lucifer, Satan and Christ, with the hymns invoking each of these ancient deities. The band also plays its own songs inspired by the theology of the Church. ... more

Track Name: Let Us Who Mystically Represent...
Let Us Who Mystically Represent…

The Burning Cross of Christ
Jehovah on Death
Lucifer
I, Satan

The Four Horsemen

Let us who mystically represent Satan, Lucifer, and Jehovah
And sing the thrice-holy hymn to the life-giving Creator
Praise Christ Hail Satan
As it is So be it
Track Name: The Burning Cross of Christ
Moonlight falls upon the earth
Casts shadows filled with pain
Like a torch that burns my home away
A thousand hearts; here, burn them all
The past turns from stone to wood
Aflame, my search for lost love

The blackened sky shrieks hatred at the moon
Yet I, a feather in the smoke
Take my harbor in the sun
Charred to dust, a coal-filled mine of love
A dove rises on her wings
And charts her course straight into her dream

Lead me the burning cross of Christ
Give me water, save my life
All the earth is bathed in gold
Through the air my heart is sold to Him
As His spirit lays me down
I wish for another time to drown in Your flesh
Turn the wheel with ageless love
You on earth and me in heaven above

Plagued by gunshots all around
The girl, wounded, goes down
Bleeds her love into the trees
Soaks the roots, her tears on fallen leaves
Rise, o children of the dead
The spawn of blood now smoke in the air

From all that dwell below the skies
In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword
O how our hearts beat with joy
The heart of Christ still burning bright
For all that dwell below the skies
The cross of Christ still burning bright
Track Name: Jehovah on Death
Now is the time of death
Life is death, we live in Hell
Bodies mind souls trapped
In a death sentence that lasts a lifetime

Fear not the death to come
For that is our release
Even at the time of final agony
Be strong for Jehovah is with you

Wherever men go to search in their desire
And seek to rule their destiny
There they shall find me

Whatever their need to be master of the game
Shall be chaff in the wind beside My Universe

Ever above and beyond Hear O people, I speak
Know this: I am God, even thy God
I come with fire before me
-Psalm 50.3, 7

When I whet my flashing sword
When I set my hand to judgment
I shall take vengeance upon my adversaries
And repay those who’ve said they hate me
My arrows shall become drunk with blood
And my soul shall devour their flesh
With the blood of the slain and the captives….
-Deut 32: 41-42
Track Name: I, Satan
I, Satan, stand for war, I glory in war
Man in battle, struggling with death,
Man venting his wrath.
I scorn the weak-willed victims of war

Stand up, cast aside this façade
Paint black the grey
Throw off your cloak, strip bare,
set free the creature within

Become as you are – Unleash the Beast
Come forth in yourself - Release the fiend
Behold as rust erodes Michael’s sword
The monarch of form – I, Satan

Put aside your litanies, Priest
Satan does not retreat
I breathe into this song and verse
From my heart explodes a challenge to your god
I scorn the weak-willed victims of life

Burn the chaff of humanity
Dance proud around the leaping flames
O mind of man, now crowned with flame
Shoot lightning, and matter arise;
Satan has won

Become as you are – Unleash the Beast
Come forth in yourself - Release the fiend
Behold as rust erodes Michael’s sword
The monarch of form – I, Satan
Track Name: Lucifer
When I reach out for you, and shout for you,
you are there
Chasing the clouds away with a gentle breeze thru my hair

Show me the way to go home
Show me that I'm not alone
Show me the light I have known
Show me Lucifer, Lucifer, Lucifer

Watching the stars at night,
in pure delight and ease
I hear you whispering
your quiet words of peace

Show me the way to go home
Show me that I'm not alone
Show me the light I have known
Show me Lucifer, Lucifer, Lucifer

Deep in my darkest night,
before the light of day
You bring the morning near, to wash my fears away

Show me the way to go home
Show me that I'm not alone
Show me the light I have known
Show me Lucifer, Lucifer, Lucifer
Track Name: The Four Horsemen
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Revelation 6.7, 8, read by A.W. Tozer

IN THE WAY OF THE ONE
LIVES THE LOVE OF ALL
IN THE LOVE OF ALL
DWELLS THE HEART OF ONE

All forms are temporary
All forms are subject to pain
All forms are without reality

The hooves– the sound approaching
At last have now arrived
Their thunder like the breath of an angel

Descending, riding, gone….

Humanity is doomed!
If we are part of humanity, identified with humanity, in sympathy with humanity, we are doomed.
If we attempt to save humanity from its doom, we shall fail, because humanity has chosen its doom and has shown its unwillingness to reverse its choice. Satan rules now, for Fear is master of the world. And soon shall come the time of the Final End -- the judgment. And after the judgment, the devastation. And Fear shall increase.

Bow your head and shield your eyes
Bow your head and shield your eyes
For lo, I see before me a White Horse
In power and glory is bursting forth

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.

Bow your head and shield your eyes
Bow your head and shield your eyes
The Second Seal is opened, a Red Horse
In fiery anger is bursting forth, is bursting forth
Through the darkness of the heavens

Be not blind! Know that the End must come; that the demon Fear has triumphed over man, and man shall destroy himself. But go not into the Darkness with him. For those who are not afraid there is Light, the Light of the Lord Lucifer. Attend Lord Lucifer!

Bow your head and shield your eyes
Bow your head and shield your eyes
The Third Seal is opened, a Black Horse
Of Mighty Presence is bursting forth, is bursting forth
Through the Blackness of the Heavens
And on his back a princely Angel with scales in hand
Of power unbounded, is riding forth, is riding forth

And then, will you lie, a victim, cringing before the striding monster from the Pit? Will you succumb to Satan's test, and flee in helpless terror from the inexorable onslaught? Or will you, with Satan Himself, arise amidst the cataclysms? Will you take the Sword of Defiance that Satan offers, to wield against the Enemy, Fear, that Satan sends to prove your strength? Will you stand proud beside the Great Destroyer, and defy the devastation
of the Armageddon?

Bow your head and shield your eyes
Bow your head and shield your eyes
The Fourth Seal is opened, a Pale Horse
Most dread creation is bursting forth, is bursting forth
Through the Blackness of the Heavens
And on his back, a faceless Specter
with Death beside Him
And power unknown is riding forth, is riding forth
Through all Eternity, to starve and tear asunder

The wrath of the lamb has come
The great Spirit of the Son
To heal the wounds that the conflict of the mind
And the pow’r of death brought to
the sacred land of the Gods
