I and others have pointed out that He is a God of the Coming Age and indeed He is a God of this Age as we are in a transition between the ages of Pisces and Aquarius. This is in fact a liminal stage. We are heading towards the end and the climax of the Kali Yuga. Folkish Wodenism is not alone in recognising that a world leader, a divine world leader is coming. The Hindus refer to Him as the Kalki Avatar, the moslems as the Imam Mahdi, the christians as the Second Coming of Christ, the Tibetans as the Gessar Khan, the Altai as the White Burkan, the Buddhists as Lord Maitreya, the Zoroastrians as the Saoshyant and the Babylonians as the Third Sargon. He is also referred to in the Eddas and Armanism as Der Starke von Oben.
Before I was introduced to folkish Wodenism via an out of the blue flyer in the early 2000s (a coincidence full of meaning) I was concerned with esoteric christianity and eschatology (the study of the end times) and I looked for and preached the Second Coming of Christ. Now, many years after my spiritual and folkish awakening, which came to its full fruition via the teachings of Woden's Folk, instead of preaching the Second Coming I write about the coming Starker von Oben. In reality this cosmic figure can be called by any and all of these names which demonstrates to me that there are such things as objective not just subjective spiritual truths because this world figure is not confined to just one religion or people: He is a global figure.
It behoves us to study the sacred writings of these other religions and peoples for they contain a certain grain of truth regarding this mysterious end time figure. This is no coincidence for these writings contain dire warnings for the peoples of the Earth. Often founders of religions are prophets and forerunners of an even greater personage. Founders of religions are often persecuted. They are certainly hardly ever acknowledged during their earthly lifetimes and are generally mocked by the unbelieving. Of course Hitler, especially since the collapse of the Third Reich has been reviled and mocked to a degree which in my opinion is unprecedented. Of course one could argue that he was the founder of a religion: National Socialism but he was not just the founder of a religion but the very incarnation of a God. That God is Wotan.
Often these founders of religions are prophets and forerunners of the God or God force which they proclaim. Sometimes the forerunner is a separate personage as John the Baptist was to Jesus Christ:
"And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias." (John 1:19-23, King James version)We must not confuse the forerunner with the One that he prophesizes is to come. However the forerunner can be filled in part with the divine force of the avatar. We are minded of Hitler and how he appeared to be possessed by the avataric force of Wotan. He was not himself Wotan, but Wotan appeared to seize him and spoke and acted through him.
"Perhaps we may sum up this general phenomenon as 'Ergriffenheit' - a state of being seized or possessed. The term postulates not only an 'Ergriffener' (one who is seized) but also an Ergreifer (one who seizes). Wotan is an 'Ergreifer' of men, and, unless one wishes to deify Hitler - which indeed has actually happened - Wotan is really the only explanation." (Wotan, 1936, Jung)
"Everything gravitated around a man with exceptional abilities for captivating, transporting, arousing and fanaticising the people, while he himself presented under more than one aspect the traits of a possessed person, as if an extraordinary force were acting through him, giving him lucidity and iron logic in action, but depriving him of every sense of limit."[My emphasis]. (Notes on the Third Reich, Julius Evola, 1964)Wotan's apparent 'possession' of Hitler may be explained by the Aryan concept of the avatar. Hitler was not an ordinary man. He was born of a woman in order to fulfill a specific mission in the same sense that according to christians Jesus Christ did. By all appearances he was human, being born of woman but nevertheless his followers believe he was a God-Man incarnated in human flesh to fulfill a specific task. In this sense there is little qualative difference between Adolf Hitler and Jesus Christ with the exception that we know Hitler to be a real historic personage. There is no such proof for the existence of Jesus Christ.
Recently there has been a concerted attempt by dark forces to undermine the founder of folkish Wodenism by ridiculing him and misrepresenting his teachings. This is to be expected for these same agents of dark forces fear the light. They delight in exposing others but they themselves will hide behind a false identity whilst they libel innocent people purely because they violently disagree with their teachings. This is to be expected. Far from eroding the knowledge that our teachings are based upon light and truth these desparate persecutors actually convince us that we are right!
We look for the avatar: we await Widar made flesh but His spirit is already here. It dwells in the bodies of the Woden initiates. Woden through His son Widar is with us; He is in us and He is us! This is a deep and sacred truth if only we could accept it and act accordingly.
