Foras Brings Ominous Warning
By James Donahue
Like the other Goetian Spirits formerly appearing in human form, when Foras, Goetia 31, was recently
evoked he appeared as a skeleton. It was a message of death.
But Foras had even more to say. His bearded remains stood waist deep in a pool of blood.
"Foras is said to assist life unto any man and yet I understand the image that it projects," the magician
that evoked this demon said. He said he believes the spirit is telling us that the future "is hopeless for all mankind."
Foras later came to him in a dream. He said this time he appeared as a "hairless human like figure
standing within a deep red pool of blood."
The man who evoked Foras said he has no recollection of speaking with the spirit, although he received
a clear message which was "a description of the extinct human race." He said he was not only told that we would become extinct,
but when and how it would happen.
"I believe that this aforementioned being is Foras (and) that (he) did foretell of the annihilation
of the human soul apart from Eden," he wrote.
The ancients always described Foras as "a strong man" who understood herbs and knew the secrets of
long life. Some said he could even make men live forever.
How ironic that it would be this spirit who proclaims a death sentence to all of mankind.
