Evildoer Added to Evildoer: The Story of Satan, Azazel and the Rebellious Angels An excerpt from:
Beltane is a Celtic holy-day celebrated on May 1 which commemorates the entrapment of Azazel and his angels (along with Azazel‘s human wife) within the earth at the time of the Biblical Flood the day following the slaughter of their angel/human hybrid children. Beltane festivals featured ritual acts designed to protect people from harm by Otherworldly spirits. Corresponding to a cross-quarter day, this holy-day was celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere as Samhain (in medieval Ireland, Samhain became the principle festival where ritual bonfires were lit on hills, which is to say, on the high-places, throughout Ireland. The ancient Celtic festival of Samhain included a ritual celebration of the union of a chieftain god (representing the angel Azazel) and a mother-goddess (representing Azazel‘s human wife), as well as seeking the propitiation of the spirits), from whence comes our celebration of Halloween (October 31), also showcasing the demons, ghosts and goblins which represented the fallen angels entrapped within the earth and the spirits of their dead angel/human hybrid offspring. In commemoration of the deaths of the human/hybrid offspring of the angels, Samhain is called the ‗Greater Sabbat of the Dead‘ in Wiccan magic (‗Wicca‘ is the Old English name for a male witch). Cernunnos is the Wiccan Horned God. His ‗death,‘ or rather, his interment within the earth, is marked on Samhain (October 31). In Wicca, Samhain (October 31) also marks the descent of the Goddess, who represents Azazel‘s human wife, into the Underworld. In Celtic legends, the place within the earth where the angels are entrapped is called the Otherworld (this is also true of the Egyptians, from whom this concept likely originated. According to noted Egyptologist E.A. Wallis Budge in The Egyptian Heaven and Hell (p.87), the term ‗Other World‘ was synonymous with the term ‗Underworld‘). As noted by Whitley Stokes in KZ 40:245 (1907), the word ‗Samhain‘ is etymologically similar to the Proto-Celtic *samani, meaning ‗assembly,‘ a word also etymologically similar to the Roman word ‗manes‘ and the Etruscan word ‗mani,‘ other worldly beimgs who represent the assembly of imprisoned fallen angels in whose honor this festival is celebrated. The Koran 6.128 likewise speaks of such an ―assembly of jinn‖ (from Arabic jinn, collective plural, meaning "demons, spirits, angels"). The assembled group of jinn, which is to say, angels spoken of therein include Azazel and his group of imprisoned fallen angels. The book of magic known as The Greater Key of Solomon likewise speaks of such ―assemblies‖ of ―Evil and rebellious Spirits (read: angels) dwelling in the Abysses of Darkness‖ of whom its practitioners sought to ―conjure‖ (See The Greater Key of Solomon Book I Chapter VII). The Seventh Tablet of the Assyrian Story of the Creation Line 1 and Fragment-K 3449 Line 4 (See Records of the Past 2nd series, Vol. I ed. by A. H. Sayce/University of Oxford (1888 A.D.)) speak of such an ―assembly‖ of ―gods,‖ which is to say, of the existence of such an ―assembly‖ of angels on our Earth whom the ancients revered as gods).
In The Cloud upon the Sanctuary, Karl von Eckartshausen reveals his esoteric knowledge concerning this assembly of fallen angels when he speaks of the presence of an ―interior society,‖ a ―hidden assembly, a society of the Elect‖ formed ―after the fall of man‖ a ―society of sages‖ (read: a group of fallen angels) which ―communicated, according to time and circumstances, unto the exterior societies,‖ with those humans on the surface of the Earth, or rather, was in communication with such individuals who sought to conjure them, and that ―this interior illuminated circle‖ (located within Azazel‘s circular cherub in the interior of the Earth), was an ―illuminated community‖ (the Illuminati) which ―counts its members from more than one world,‖ they being originally from the New Earth, and ―which one day will be the Regent Mother of the whole World,‖ which is to say, will one day emerge to rule over the nations of our Earth. As such, Azazel and his group of fallen angels are the mysterious group known as the Illuminati. This illuminated group of fallen angels emerges to rule the Earth on July 18/19, 2016 A.D. As related in Aleister Crowley: The Midnight Messenger by Mike Culkin: ―Crowley first became aware of the existence of spiritual powers (read: Crowley first learned about the existence of Azazel‘s group of angels who are entrapped within the earth) in 1898 when he read The Cloud upon the Sanctuary by Karl von Eckartshausen. Crowley was 22 at the time and set out to contact the hidden Order which the book describes. His efforts led to his initiation into the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn on 18 November, 1898.‖ The ―hidden Order‖ described in The Cloud upon the Sanctuary (circa. late 18th Century A.D.) was none other than the group of fallen angels headed by the angel Azazel. Crowley was in actual communication with them! The fact that one may actually make contact with Azazel and his group was an ancient Egyptian mystery teaching. The following excerpt from The Emerald Tablets of Thoth (Thoth is a god who represents the angel Azazel) speaks of such a ―hidden‖ ―order,‖ a secret brotherhood which may be magic-ally conjured as it were, referring of course to Azazel‘s group of rebellious fallen angels who are entrapped within the earth: Banded together as in order, Brothers (a brotherhood) of Darkness, they through the ages, antagonist they to the children of men (to humans). Walked they always secret and hidden, found, yet not found by the children of man. Forever, they walked and worked in darkness, hiding from the light in the darkness of night. Silently, secretly use they their power (the socalled ―spirit of error,‖ the Vril force; ELF waves), enslaving and binding the soul of men. Unseen they come, and unseen they go. Man, in his ignorance calls Them (conjures them) from below (from where they lay entrapped beneath the earth). Tablet VI of The Emerald Tablets of Thoth Master Magician A. E. Waite in a tome entitled Devil-Worship in France Chapter I: Satanism in the Nineteenth Century (1896 A.D.) explains that ―the attempt to form a partnership with the lost angels of orthodox theology…constitutes Black Magic,‖ that ―the purpose of Black Magic is simply and obviously to communicate with devils,‖ equivocating that ―the spiritualist…receives the messages of the spheres (no doubt in the form of ELF waves; the ―spirit of error,‖ the Vril force, waves being spherical in shape) and establishes a partial acquaintance with an order which is not of this world.‖ Azazel and his other worldly order of rebellious fallen angels who are entrapped within the earth is the original ―Mystical Fraternity‖ (by definition ‗the quality or condition of being brothers;‘ a brotherhood) from which all other such magic-related ―secret Fraternities‖ were derived due to mankind‘s ―associations from the past‖ with this angelic group as noted by A. E. Waite in Chapter 2 of his book entitled The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts (1910 A.D.). It must be noted A. E. Waite, in addition to being a Master Mason, was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and also a member of
the Rosicrucian Society. This fact is importantant when establishing historical associations. Incredibly enough, a prominent number of novels coming out of the Spiritualist Movement of the 18th – 20th Centuries speak of the existence of Azazel and the rebellious fallen angels and how these angels interact with human societies on our Earth. In Chapter 12 of The Goal of Life (1908 A.D.) the esoteric author Hiram E. Butler speaks of Azazel‘s group of rebellious fallen angels who are entrapped within the earth when he professes the existence on our Earth of an ―Eternal Brotherhood…gathered from those who are called in Genesis vi. 2 ‗the sons of God‘ (read: angels),‖ a group which (not so) secretly abides here upon our Earth (in the pursuit of spiritual truth, writes esoteric author Hiram E. Butler in 1887 A.D. at the height of the American Spiritualist movement in his book entitled Solar Biology, ―We have to confront numerous traditions regarding a fallen race, tempters of Adam and Eve,‖ who are ―‗the powers and principalities of the air‘ (read: the angels. See Ephesians 6:12), against which the people of this earth have to contend.‖). The group consisting of Azazel and his rebellious fallen angels are variously known amongst esoteric orders as the Universal Brotherhood, the Great White Brotherhood, the Great Brotherhood of Light, the Great White Lodge, the Brotherhood of the White Lodge, the Great Chiefs (Tchatchau), the Secret Chiefs, the Illuminati, Inner Plane Adepti, the Ascended Masters, the Masters of the Hidden Brotherhood (aka Mahatmas; Adept Brothers), the Ancient Aryan Masters, the Masters of the Ancient Wisdom, the Masters of Wisdom and the Hidden Directorate. These fallen angels are amongst the true leaders of the New World Order. Theosophist and one time President of the Theosophical Society Annie Besant in her book entitled The Masters (1912 A.D.) likewise speaks of great teachers who are ―Guardians of humanity‖ (read: guardian angels) forming a ―great Brotherhood‖ who while being ―incarnate, they remain in retired and secluded spots, away from the tumult of human life,‖ and who are said to ―aid, in countless ways, the progress of humanity.‖ C. W. Leadbeater, a prominent early member of the Theosophical Society, writes the following concerning this angelic group as presented in The Masters And The Path (1925 A.D.)(Part I: The Masters Chapter I: The Existence of the Masters General Considerations): ―The possession of extended vision and other faculties resulting from the unfolding of our latent powers has also brought within our constant experience the fact that there are other orders of beings than the human, some of whom rank alongside the Adepts in a grade of existence higher than our own…whom we call Devas or Angels…‖ Speaking of this Brotherhood of angels he goes on to say: ―There has always been a Brotherhood of Adepts, the Great White Brotherhood; there have always been Those who knew, those who possessed this inner wisdom, and our Masters are among the present representatives of that mighty line of Seers and Sages‖ (The Masters and the Path Part II: Chapter III: The Way to the Master). In fact, Leadbeater claimed to be in contact with this angelic group. At any rate, Theosophists such as Leadbeater and Madame Blavatsky staged séances by which they attempted to contact otherworldly ―spirits.‖ Such séances were a popular past time of the day, one prominent example being Mary Todd Lincoln‘s hosting of séances in the White House some of which were attended by President Abraham Lincoln. The Ouija© Board from Parker Brothers (patented in 1920 A.D.) is based on the concept of spirit boards made popular during the modern Spiritualist Movement of which Theosophy was a part. Aleister Crowley was himself known to employ such spirit boards during some of his Magick ceremonies. In fact, Aleister Crowley regarded the Great White Brotherhood as a very real entity, mentioning them in his book Magick. In a similar vein, a book entitled Oahspe: A Kosmon Bible in the Words of Jehovih and
his Angel Embassadors Chapter IV: Book of Wars Against Jehovih v. 14 by John Ballou Newbrough (1882 A.D.), a purported product of ‗automatic writing‘ (purportedly dictated by a spirit) during the Spiritualism Movement in America, speaks of the existence of: ―angels from above…from the colleges of Craoshivi‖ (‗Craoshivi‘ is therein translated as ―God's heavenly place‖) who ―were to sojourn on the earth…as inspiring spirits and protectors (read: as guardian angels),‖ with Newbrough summising that ―angels‖ have indeed ―dwelt on the earth.‖ Alice A. Bailey (Theosophical Society) 1922 A.D. in America speaks of the existence of Azazel and the rest of the rebellious fallen angels when she explains: ―In Lemurian days (from L. lemures (pl.) "spirits of the dead"), after the great descent of the spiritual Existences (read: rebellious fallen angels) to the earth (the angels arrived on Earth in 5000 B.C.), the work They planned to do was systematized (the work these angels planned to do, it must be noted, entailed the destruction of the human race). Offices were apportioned, and the processes of evolution in all the departments of nature were brought under the conscious wise guidance of this initial Brotherhood. This Hierarchy of Brothers of Light still exists, and the work goes steadily on. They are all in physical existence (incarnate), either in dense physical bodies, such as many of the Masters employ, or in etheric bodies, such as the more exalted helpers and the Lord of the World occupy (Satan is the Gnostic Iadabaoth, who was called the ―Lord of the World,‖ being he whose anger blazed with jealous rage at the created primal man (Adam) who became superior to himself ). It is of value for men to remember that They are in physical existence (the angels are incarnate), and to bear in mind that They (angels) exist upon this planet with us, controlling its destinies, guiding its affairs, and leading all its evolutions on to an ultimate perfection. The central home of this Hierarchy is at Shamballa, a centre in the Gobi desert (gobi means ―desert‖), called in the ancient books the "White Island." (the place in the desert where Azazel is located is called ―The Island‖ by Arabs, being situated as it is between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers)…Several of the Masters (read: angels) in physical bodies dwell in the Himalaya mountains, in a secluded spot called Shigatse (in Tibet), far from the ways of men, but the greater number (of rebellious fallen angels) are scattered all over the world, dwelling in different places in the various nations, unrecognised and unknown (concerning this subject see Hebrews 13:2 which states: ―Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares,‖ the angels being virtually indistinguishable from the native human inhabitants of the Earth. Unbeknownst and unawares to many, to be sure, angels stride the hallways of power and commerce upon this planet)…It might here be well to point out that, working as members of that Hierarchy are a great number of beings called angels by the Christian, and devas by the oriental.‖ Initiation, Human and Solar (Alice A. Bailey, 1922 A.D.) Chapter IV: The Founding of the Hierarchy (Likely it is this ―Hierarchy,‖ at its core consisting of angels who as per Alice Bailey ―exist upon this planet with us, controlling its destinies, guiding its affairs,‖ of which speak the following quotes: "Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power (‗power‘ is a word synonymous with the word ‗angel‘) somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful (a play on the word ‗Watchers‘/angels), so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." - Woodrow Wilson (1913 A.D.) *** "A power (‗power‘ is a word synonymous with the word ‗angel,‘ this being a play on words) has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass" - John C. Calhoun, Vice President of the United States *** "Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible (hidden) government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." - Theodore Roosevelt *** "The real rulers in Washington are invisible (hidden), and exercise power from behind the scenes." - Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter (1952 A.D.) *** "There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself." - Senator Daniel K. Inouye *** "Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible (hidden) government which is the true ruling power of our country. Our minds are molded, our tastes are formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of." - Walter
Bernays, 1928 A.D. *** "The drive…is to create a one world government...Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope…" - Congressman Larry P. McDonald (1976 A.D.) *** "We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent." - James Paul Warburg *** The working members of the Hierarchy constitute a Shadow Government bent on World Government and is centered in the Valley of the Shadow of Death.Theosophists call the place where these angels lay entrapped within the earth as Kamaloka. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (humans), but against principalities, against powers (angels), against the rulers of the darkness of this world , against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 KJV. Included in the ‗Hierarchy‘ is Satan and his group of angels: ―And the devil (Satan), taking him (Jesus) up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, ‗All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.‘‖ Luke 4:5-6). The world is Satan’s oyster. He gives it to whomever he pleases, and indeed, has given it, and indeed, will give it. They to whom it has been given control it now. Globalization of economies under a one-world government, secretly headed by the leadership of Satan, and seconded by Azazel, in a New World Order, is the ultimate aim of the Masons and of Freemasonry (one of many shadow organizations with the same common goal), which is the Mystery of Lawlessness of which 2Thessalonians 2:7 speaks, which was already a work in progress in Jesus‘ time. At the present momemt this goal nears its attainment.) (According to Rudolph Steiner in Chapter V of Cosmic Energy, contact between these so-called Lemurians and mankind ―consisted in a kind of ‗thought reading.‘‖
It is this hidden order, this illuminated society of sages consisting of Azazel‘s group of fallen angels of which the Rosicrucians speak (circa. 1617 A.D.) when they obfuscate the following: As far as the Collegium is concerned…The brethren (read: the brotherhood) are nearer unto thee than thou thinkest…they are…Theosophi. The Mirror of the Wisdom of the Rosicrucians (aka Speculum Sophicum Rhodostauroticum)
From this group of ―Theosophi‖ composed of Azazel and his fellow rebellious fallen angels is derived the name of the Theosophical Society, which is named in their honor. This so-called ―Collegium‖ of ―Theosophi‖ of which the Rosicrucians speak is also the sub-earthly Ahrimanic school of Rudolph Steiner‘s Anthroposophy spiritual-movement, a society with links to Annie Besant and the Theosophical movement (Ahriman was a Persian god who represented the angel Azazel). Rudolph Steiner (1861–1925 A.D.) was world-famous for his Masonic and Rosicrucian based teachings. In An Outline of Occult Science Chapter VIII (Rudolph Steiner, 1922 A.D.) he professes the existence of ―beings of the world of soul and spirit who influence from hidden worlds the outer manifested world,‖ and that a person who is so attuned ―receives influences‖ which the ―beings of the spiritual world convey them to him.‖ Apparently, mediaeval Kabalists passed along the knowledge of the existence of Azazel‘s group of fallen angels being present on our Earth to students of philosophy and of the esoteric arts as Theosophist Madame Blavatsky writes in 1888 A.D. in her book entitled The Secret Doctrine (Volume II P.284) concerning the Great White Brotherhood of rebellious fallen angels: ―The mediæval Kabalists knew this well, since one of them did not fear to write: "The Kabala was first taught by God himself to a select Company of Angels who formed a theosophic school in Paradise. After the FALL the Angels most graciously communicated this heavenly doctrine to the disobedient child of Earth, to furnish the protoplasts with the means of returning to their pristine nobility and felicity" (Quoted by Christian Ginsburg from the Kabala) (Author‘s Note: I have included Christian David Ginsburg‘s original quote from The Kabbalah in the paragraph below). This shows how the event — of the Sons of God, marrying and imparting the divine Secrets of Heaven to the daughters of men — allegorically told by Enoch (speaks of The Book of Enoch (IEnoch)) and in the sixth chapter of Genesis (See Genesis 6:4) was interpreted by the Christian Kabalists.‖ Blavatsky quoted British Hebrew and biblical scholar Christian D. Ginsburg in The Kabbalah
(1863 A.D.): "The Kabala was first taught by God Himself to a select company of angels, who formed a theosophic school in Paradise. After the Fall the angels most graciously communicated this heavenly doctrine to the disobedient child of earth, to furnish the protoplasts with the means of returning to their pristine nobility and felicity. From Adam it passed over to Noah, and then to Abraham, the friend of God, who emigrated with it to Egypt, where the patriarch allowed a portion of this mysterious doctrine to ooze out. It was in this way that the Egyptians obtained some knowledge of it, and the other Eastern nations could introduce it into their philosophical systems. Moses, who was learned in all the wisdom of Egypt, [as] first initiated into the Kabala in the land of his birth, but became most proficient in it during his wanderings in the wilderness, when he not only devoted to it the leisure hours of the whole forty years, but received lessons in it from one of the angels. By the aid of this mysterious science the lawgiver was enabled to solve the difficulties which arose during his management of the Israelites, in spite of the pilgrimages, wars, and frequent miseries of the nation. He covertly laid down the principles of this secret doctrine in the first four books of the Pentateuch, but withheld them from Deuteronomy…. Moses also initiated the seventy Elders into the secrets of this doctrine, and they again transmitted them from hand to hand. Of all who formed the unbroken line of tradition, David and Solomon were most deeply initiated into the Kabala. No one, however, dared to write it down till Simon Ben Jochai, who lived at the time of the destruction of the second Temple…. After his death, his son, Rabbi Eliezer, and his secretary, Rabbi Abba as well as his disciples, collated Rabbi Simon Ben Jochai's treatises, and out of these composed the celebrated work called Sohar (Zohar), i.e., Splendor which is the grand storehouse of Kabalism." This statement is repeated nearly word for word by S. L. MacGregor Mathers in the Introduction to Mathers‘ own 1912 A.D. translation (entitled Kabbala Denudata: The Kabbalah Unveiled) of an earlier work entitled The Kabbalah Denudata Vol I (Published in 1677 A.D.) Vol II (Published in 1684 A.D.) of Christian Knorr von Rosenroth (aka Baron von Rosenroth; pseudonym Peganius Rautner), the Silesian-born German Evangelical Theosophist: "The Kabbalah was first taught by God himself to a select company of angels, who formed a theosophic school in Paradise. After the Fall the angels most graciously communicated this heavenly doctrine to the disobedient child of earth, to furnish the protoplasts with the means of returning to their pristine nobility and felicity. From Adam it passed over to Noah, and then to Abraham, the friend of God, who emigrated with it to Egypt, where the patriarch allowed a portion of this mysterious doctrine to ooze out. It was in this way that the Egyptians obtained some knowledge of it, and the other Eastern nations could introduce it into their philosophical systems. Moses, who was learned in all the wisdom of Egypt, was first initiated into the Qabalah in the land of his birth, but became most proficient in it during his wanderings in the wilderness, when he not only devoted to it the leisure hours of the whole forty years, but received lessons in it from one of the angels. By the aid of this mysterious science the law−giver was enabled to solve the difficulties which arose during his management of the Israelites, in spite of the pilgrimages, wars, and frequent miseries of the nation. He covertly laid down the principles of this secret doctrine in the first four books of the Pentateuch, but withheld them from Deuteronomy. Moses also initiated the seventy elders into the secrets of this doctrine, and they again transmitted them from hand to hand. Of all who formed the unbroken line of tradition, David and Solomon were the most deeply initiated into the Kabbalah. No one, however, dared to write it down, till Schimeon Ben Jochai, who lived at the time of the destruction of the second temple . . . . . After his death, his son, Rabbi Eleazar, and his secretary, Rabbi Abba, as well as his disciples, collated Rabbi Simon Ben Jochai's treatises, and out of these composed the
celebrated work called ZHR, Zohar, splendour, which is the grand storehouse of Kabbalism." Elias Gewurz (circa 1922 A.D.) writes of Azazel and his assembly of rebel angels and how this group may in fact be contacted in his Theosophic work entitled Mysteries of the Qabalah, with Gewurz explaining ―The Brotherhood of the White Lodge (also known as ―the Masters of Wisdom‖) is a body of great men (read: an assembly of incarnate fallen angels)‖ who ―watch over humanity from their exalted (spiritual) planes.‖ The book states that ―the White Lodge has its representatives on earth, its messengers and teachers, and pupils,‖ and how certain individuals may become ―channels‖ for The Brotherhood of the White Lodge, a ―man become a servant of the great Lords and co-operate with them here on earth,‖ such individuals being made ―to serve faithfully the Masters of Wisdom‖ and thereby becoming ―messengers of the White Lodge‖ (See Mysteries of the Qabalah Part I: The Brotherhood of the White Lodge. This book is classified Hermetic Qabalah). Such an individual in this way ―becomes a cooperator with those high intelligences whom we call Masters, and, under Their guidance and with their help, he continues his career, ever upward, and ever onward, until he enters the presence of the Ancient of Ancients, the merciful Teacher of Gods, angels and men.‖ (See Hidden Treasures of the Ancient Qabalah by Elias Gewurz (1918 A.D.) Chapter 8). (―Satan obliges himself to the greatest of Magicians…he will oblige himself to teach them arts and sciences, which he may easily do, being so learned a knave as he is.‖ Book I Daemonologie (King James 1597 A.D)) (―They are always affiliated to those organizations on earth whose members are single-minded, and true hearted and genuinely desirous of the welfare of the race. Especially are they interested in the advancement of science, philosophy and religion, and all public bodies promoting these subjects are helped (without knowing whence the help cometh) by the Brotherhood of the White Lodge (helped by Azazel‘s group of angels). For the last three decades (from the 1890‘s to the 1920‘s) there has been a steady and growing increase of knowledge in all departments of human activity. Inventions have multiplied, and discoveries of unsuspected laws of nature are being made on every hand. Philosophic and scientific thought has never been so abundant and so brilliant as it is today, but the receivers of the gifts know not the givers, and often frustrate the gracious purposes which were to be served by the bestowal of the gifts.‖ Mysteries of the Qabalah by Elias Gewurz (1922 A.D.) Part I: The Brotherhood of the White Lodge)
A 17th Century Rosicrucian document explains how: ―…they (Philosophers) have established the existence of mortal beings between the gods and man (angel/human hybrids) to whom one can ascribe all that surpasses human weakness yet falls short of divine greatness." "This is the opinion held in every ancient philosophy. The Platonists and the Pythagoreans took it from the Egyptians, and the latter from Joseph the Saviour, and from the Hebrews who dwelt in Egypt before the crossing of the Red Sea. The Hebrews used to call these beings who are between the Angels and man Sadaim, and the Greeks, transposing the letters and adding but one syllable, called them Daimonas. Among the ancient Philosophers these demons were held to be an Aerial Race, ruling over the Elements, mortal, engendering, and unknown in this century to those who rarely seek Truth in her ancient dwelling place, which is to say, in the Cabala and in the theology of the Hebrews, who possessed the special art of holding communion with that Aerial People and of conversing with all these Inhabitants of the Air." The Comte De Gabalis by Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars Discourse III (originally published in 1670 A.D.) Another product of the American Spiritualist Movement was a tract entitled A Message to All Mystics: The Hindu Magic Mirror by the Chicago native, publisher and mail order supplier of magic and occult products Dr. L. W. De Laurence (1910 A.D.) delivers a purported ―message‖ from an ―unseen‖‖astral brotherhood of magic,‖ ―an occult organization‖ with the which one may ―communicate directly and personally with the unseen Brotherhood.‖
In the Commentary section of Comte De Gabalis by Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars [1913 A.D.] (portions of the work were originally published in 1670 A.D.) Commentary I we find the following selection concerning Azazel and his group of rebellious fallen angels (it must be noted this book played an important role in the literary progression toward a proper 19th - 20th Century Theosophy movement): BOOK OF ENOCH: Enoch the great grandfather of Noah, who had that surname (Edris) from his great knowledge, for he was favoured with no less than thirty books of divine revelations, and was the first who wrote with a pen, and studied the sciences of astronomy and arithmetic." This quotation is an approved Muhammedan commentary upon the following references to Enoch in the Koran. "And remember Edris in the same book; for he was a just person and a prophet, and we exalted him to a high place." SURA 19, MARY. "The History which follows is taken from Dr. Grabe's Spicilegium Patrum (Oxford, 1698 A.D.), and supposed by him to be the Genuine Work of Enoch the Patriarch, whose Name it bears. Many of the first Fathers of the Church were of this Opinion, who often produce Citations out of it, and allow it to be of the best Authority. Tertullian, speaking of the Habit of Women, uses this Expression The same Angels who introduc'd Gold and Silver, and the mixture of Colours, which advance the Lustre of Female Beauty, are now condemn'd by God, as Enoch informs us. Clemens Alexandrinus discoursing upon the disobedient Angels, agrees to the Testimony of Enoch, and says, That the Rebellious Spirits were the Inventors of Astronomy and Divination, as Enoch delivers the Account. And St. Jude (who cites a Prophecy out of the Writings of Enoch in the fourteenth and fifteenth Verses of his Epistle) may be supposed to have recourse to this Fragment before us, when he records in the Sixth Verse, That the Angels who kept not their first Estate, but left their own Habitation, are reserv'd in Everlasting Chains under Darkness, unto the Judgment of the Great Day." THE HISTORY OF THE WATCHMEN, (Or the Angels). WRITTEN BY ENOCH THE PATRIARCH: And it came to pass, when the Sons of Men were increas'd, that very Beautiful Daughters were born to them: With these the Watchmen (the Watchers/angels) were in Love, and burnt with Desire toward them, which drew them into many Sins and Follies. They communed with themselves: "Let us, say they, choose us Wives out of the Daughters of Men upon the Earth." Semiazas, their Prince, made Answer: "I fear, says he, you will not execute your Resolution; and so I shall derive upon myself alone the Guilt of this Impiety." They all reply'd, and said; "We will bind ourselves with an Oath to perform our Purpose, and invoke dreadful Imprecations upon our Heads, if we depart from our Enterprize before it be accomplished." So they oblig‘d themselves with an Oath; and implored an Arrest of Vengeance upon one another. They were two Hundred, who in the Days of Jared came down upon the Top of Mount Hermon. The Mountain receiv‘d that Name from the Oath by which they bound themselves, and the Imprecations they wilfully submitted themselves under. The Names of their Princes were these: 1. Semiazas, the Chief of them. 2. Atarcuph. 3. Araciel. 4. Chobabiel. 5. Horammame. 6. Ramiel.7. Sampsich. 8. Zaciel. 9. Balciel. 10. Azalzel. 11. Pharmarus. 12. Amariel. 13. Anagemas. 14. Thausael. 15. Samiel. 16. Sarinas. 17. Eumiel. 18. Tyriel. 19. Jumiel. 20. Sariel. These, and all the rest of them, took to themselves Wives… and were infiam'd with Lust toward them till the Flood. The Offspring of these Women were of three sorts: The first race were Giants, or Tall Men: They begat the Naphelims, and from them came the Eliudæans; and their Number increased, according to the Proportion of their Bodies. They instructed their Wives and Children in Sorcery and Inchantments. Azazel, the Tenth in the Order of the Princes, was the first inventor of Swords and Breastplates, and all Military Appointments: He taught his Posterity
the Art of extracting Metals out of the Earth, and the Curiosity of working in Gold and Silver, to make Ornaments and Female Decorations: He diredted and shew'd them to polish, and give a Lustre to choice Stones, and to Colours: The Sons of Men soon furnish'd themselves and their Daughters with these Vanities; and breaking through the Commands of God, they drove the Pious and Just into Miscarriages (abortions); insomuch that a monstrous Appearance of Impiety stalk‘d over the Face of the whole Earth. Semiazas, their Prince, discover'd the Art of Hatred, to reserve Envy in the Mind, and to infuse Misfortunes upon others by the Roots of Herbs. Pharmarus, the Eleventh Prince, found out Witchcraft, Charms, and Inchantments. The Ninth revealed the Course of the Stars. The Fourth the Science of Astrology. The Eighth the Inspection of the Air. The Third of the Earth. The Seventh of the Sun. The Twentieth explain'd the Signs of the Moon. All of them display‘d these Secrets of Knowledge to their Wives and Sons. The Giants soon after began to feed upon Human Flesh, which made the number of Men to decrease, and sensibly to decay. Those who were left being harass'd with so many Instances of Wickedness, raised their Voice to Heaven, and implor'd, That their Memory might be preserv'd in the Sight of God. The Four Great Archangels, Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel, being affected with their Cries, look‘d down upon Earth from the Holiness of Heaven; and beholding a general Effusion of Blood, and a Spirit of Universal Impiety, had this Communication among themselves: "The Spirits and Souls of Men implore our Aid, in Agonies of Sorrow; Introduce (they cry) our Prayers to the Highest." Then the Four Archangels calling upon God, deliver'd themselves thus: "Thou art God of Gods and Lord of Lords, King of Kings, and God of Men: The Throne of thy Glory endures to all Ages, and thy Name is Holy and Blessed for evermore; for Thou art the Creator of all things; Thy Power is over all things; all things are open and manifest before Thee, nor can anything be conceal‘d from Thee. Thou seest the Actions of Azazel; the Misfortunes he has occasioned; the Wickedness and abominable Practices he has taught upon the Earth; how he has corrupted it with Fraud and Villainy. He has divulg‘d the great Arcana of Heaven; and the Sons of Men are led, by his Example, to inspeél the Celestial Mysteries: Semiazas Thou hast ordained to be the Prince of those who are about him; but they have all turned themselves to the Daughters of the Men of the Earth, and polluting themselves with Women have discovered to them all the Methods of Impiety, and instructed them to perpetrate all degrees of Abomination: And now, behold, the Daughters of Men have born a Gigantic Offspring to them; a foul Blemish of Corruption has infected the whole Earth, and the World is full of Injustice. Lo, the Spirits of the Souls of Men who have been dead, attend thee: Their Groans have arriv‘d as far as the Gates of Heaven, and they cannot depart, by reason of the exceeding Impiety that is committed upon the Earth: Yet Thou knewest these things before they were effected: Dost Thou see them, and say nothing? What must be done upon this Occasion?" The Highest made answer, and the Holy Great One reply‘d; and sent Uriel to the Son of Lamech, saying: "Go to Noe (Noah), and acquaint him in My Name, Hide thyself: And inform him, that the End approaches, for the whole Earth shall perish. And tell him, a Deluge shall overspread the whole Earth, and all Things shall be destroy'd upon the Face of it. Instruct the Just Son of Lamech what he shall do, and he shall preserve his Soul unto Life; and he shall be safe in his Generation: From him shall a new Race be deriv'd and established, and shall continue to all Ages."

ENOCH'S PROPHECY OF WORLD PEACE, COMMENTARY CONCLUDED. From: The Commentary section of Comte De Gabalis by Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars  The Book . (―Many readers will recall Sir Edward (Bulwer-)Lytton's citation of Comte de Gabalis (portions of which was originally published in 1670 A.D.) in his strange novel Zanoni (published 1842 A.D.),
certain portions of which were based upon this source. And others will remember the high esteem in which the wit and wisdom of the Abbé de Villars' masterpiece (Comte de Gabalis) were held by litterateurs, as well as occultists, in the early years of the 18th century. Alexander Pope, in his dedication to the Rape of the Lock, the first draft of which was written in 1711, says "The Rosicrucians are a people I must bring you acquainted with. The best account I know of them is in a French book call‘d Le Comte de Gabalis…Alexander Pope's poem bears the same relation to its inspiration Comte de Gabalis, that a dancing mote does to the sunbeam whose brilliance it reflects.‖ Comte De Gabalis by Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars  The Book)
Azazel is an adept at animal husbandry, being often referred to as a shepherd (as the shepherd gods Dumuzi and Tammuz; as Osiris who is oft depicted with the shepherds crook and flail; as the shepherd god Pan; or as a swineherd (as Euboulos). Many representations of the angel Azazel in other religious systems depict Azazel as a shepherd. It must be noted the Egyptian god Thoth was one of such a myriad of representations of the angel Azazel. One of the names of the god Thoth (who represented the angel Azazel) was ‗Sheps,‘ this title being a cognate of the word ‗shepherd,‘ and most notably, of the Hebrew word ‗Sheol,‘ the name of the place where the angel Azazel and his rebellious angels are imprisoned underground within the earth). In this very same capacity Azazel was depicted as the Celtic/Druidic god of herders named Saman, a god also known as Samhain (Saman is also a Buddhist Deva (god). The word ‗Deva‘ is a cognate of the word ‗devil.‘ The Buddhist Deva (devil) Saman represents the angel Azazel (from the word ‗Saman‘ comes the word ‗shaman.‘ By definition, shamanism comprises a range of beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world (read: communication with the fallen angels). Indeed, Albert Pike in Morals and Dogma says: ―The Druidical ceremonies undoubtedly came from India; and the Druids were originally Buddhists.‖). The root word ‗sam‘ means poison/venom and as such is associated with the serpent, while ‗an‘ means ‗heaven.‘ The ‗i‘ means ‗lord‘ (in the Sumerian work entitled Ninurta's Exploits: A šir-sud to Ninurta (ETCSL translation: t.1.6.2) Azazel is the ―Lord Saman-ana‖ mentioned therein). This serpent lord from heaven is the Genesis serpent Azazel (known to ancients as the gods Baal and Adonis, both epitaphs meaning ‗lord‘) who was the leader of the assembly of the jinn, also known as the ‗mani.‘ As an added note, the word ‗azi,‘ the root of the name Azazel, is the Iranian Avestan word for ‗serpent.‘ Indeed, the Samhain festival is named in Azazel‘s honor, bearing his Druidic nome de guerre. The festival of Samhain was also known as the ‗Vigil of Samana.‘ A ‗vigil‘ is defined as ‗the eve of a festival.‘ We know this vigil in its Christianized form as Halloween, which is the shortened form of All-Hallows Eve, which is celebrated on the eve of the festival known as All-Hollows Day. The festival which marks the night on which the deaths of the human/angel hybrids occurred in an Armageddon-like confrontation was Christianized as All-Hallows Eve (October 31), from whence comes the name Halloween (from Hallowe‘en, the shortened form of Allhallow-even, the eve of All-hallows Day), while the following day which hallowed the celebration of the day on which the angels were imprisoned within the Earth was Christianized by the Roman Catholic Church under the name of All-Hallows Day, also known as Hallowmas (November 1), which was the Old English name for our modern All Saint‘s Day (November 1). In fact, the story of these angel‘s imprisonment within the Earth is the basis for the Roman Catholic Church‘s concept of Purgatory. All Soul‘s Day is a festival held on November 2 on the day following All Saint‘s Day when prayers are offered up in order to hasten the deliverance of those souls held in ‗purgatory.‘ Since those held in ‗purgatory‘ are these imprisoned rebellious fallen angels, such prayers consequently offered up are an effort to hasten their release. This observance represented the Christianization of a Pagan practice. Beltane is celebrated on May 1, (May Day). According to the Hutchison Educational Encyclopedia (Helicon Publishing Ltd, 2000), Beltane is May-Day, an Old Scottish quarter day.
All-Saint‘s Day was in fact moved from this date to November 1. At a period of time when the day was reckoned from sunset to sunset, the two day hallowed-day of All-hallow-even and Allhallows Day was originally a one day event. Liturgically, this day was celebrated at the Vigil of All Saint‘s (this day was the Christianized version of the Vigil of Samana, also known as Samhain), hence the name, All Saint‘s Day. All Saint‘s Day was also the Roman Catholic Church‘s Christianized substitute for the pagan Roman festival called the Feast of Lemures (alternatively the Lemuralia or Lemuria), celebrated on May 13 on the Julian Calendar (April 30, May Eve, also known as Walpurgis Night, is its Gregorian Calendar equivalent), so named for the dead spirits of the hybrid children of the angels, the deaths of whom this holy-day commemorates. In Ireland today, Oidhche/Oiche Bealtaine is May Eve, and La Bealtaine is May Day. The Welsh equivalent of Beltane is Calan Mai/Calan Haf, celebrated on May 1. The celebrations begin the evening before and this is known as May Eve. May Eve as a pagan holy-day was Christianized as (St.) Walpurgis Night being celebrated as it was on April 30 on the eve of the 1 st of May at a time when days were reckoned as beginning at sundown. In German folklore, this day (Walpurgisnacht) was a witches‘ feast night/sabbat as May Day was originally a preChristian holy-day reserved for the performance of magical rites. Beltane is also a May 1 st festival celebrated by those magical New Agers, the Wiccans. In America and Canada, the secular holiday of Labor Day is derived from May Day (it was officially secularized as a celebration of workers when it was first adopted at the 1889 International Socialist Congress in Paris where the date was fixed as being the 1st of May) and became a legal holiday in honor of workers. The Communist celebration of May Day has this as its origin, where a seemingly irreligious group esoterically celebrates a wholly religious concept. In Hinduism, Ribhus was the name of the leader of a small group said to dwell in a solar sphere. The solar sphere in which they dwell, or more specifically, within which the small group is entrapped, is representative of Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth. The name Ribhus is from ‗rbhu-,‘ a word cognate with the Latin word ‗labor‘ and the English word ‗elf.‘ Elves are folkloric representations of the rebellious fallen angels (the word ‗el‘ in the word ‗elf/elves‘ is a root of the word ‗angel‘) The true esoteric meaning of Labor Day as a holiday (holy day) pertains to the veneration of the rebellious fallen angel Azazel under the Hindu name of Ribhus. Labor Day is Ribhus Day, which is to say, Azazel Day! In America the observation of Labor Day was moved to the 1st Monday of September, though many countries still celebrate Labor Day on May Day (May 1). Of an interesting note, the first permanent settlement in North America was at Jamestown in Virginia, officially settled on May 14, 1607 A.D. on the Gregorian Calendar. The Julian Calendar date of May 14th corresponds to the Gregorian Calendar date of May 1, May Day.
