Belial the Sixty Eighth Goetic Demon
The 17th-Century German publication of magic spells and invocations The Lesser Key of Solomon brings up Belial, just as Aleister Crowley's Goetia ( 1904 ) and Anton LaVey's The Satanic Bible ( 1969 ). In The Satanic Bible ( The Book of Belial ), Belial often means "without a master", and signifies self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and also self achievement. In 1937, Edgar Cayce made use of the term "sons of belial" and "sons of the law of one" at first in one of his deep trance readings presented between 1923 and 1945. Cayce was often referred to as the "sleeping prophet" who gave over 2,500 readings to individuals while in a deep trance state. With his description of the sons of belial was consistent with the Hebrew meaning to say of "worthless" people involved in self-gratification, Cayce continued to make use of the term regularly to compare conflicting human forces at work in pre-historical instances related to the early development of Atlantis.
