Sons of Satan

Enki Enlil-Drawing enkispeaksEnki and Enlil
By Dan Ward

According to the ancient Sumerian texts, the Sumerian god, Anu, the “supreme Lord of the Sky”, the currently reigning titular head of the Sumerian Family Tree, had two sons. They were Enki (Ea), Lord of the Earth and Waters (whose mother was Antu), and Enlil (Ilu), Lord of the Air and Lord of the Command (whose mother was Ki). These two half-brothers — surprise, surprise — did not get along. Continue reading

Alphabet of Ben Sira (2)

alphabet of ben sira indexALPHABET OF BEN SIRA 
From Jewish Encyclopedia

A small book containing a double list of proverbs—twenty-two Aramaic and twenty-two Hebrew—alphabetically arranged, and a haggadic commentary on them, enriched with fables and legends. Corresponding to their linguistic difference, there are differences in their contents and origin; consequently the two collections must be treated separately. Following is a list of the Aramaic proverbs, concerning only four of which definite statements of origin can be made:

1. “Honor the physician before thou hast need of him”
(see Ecclus. [Sirach] xxxviii. 1; cited also in the rabbinical Continue reading

Jews and Demons

Jewish Magic and Superstition
By Joshua Trachtenberg, [1939]

3 THE POWERS OF EVIL

THE MIDDLE WORLD

THE basis of Jewish magic lay the belief in a vast, teeming “middle world,” a world neither of the flesh nor altogether and exclusively of the spirit. Demons and angels, to be counted only in myriads, populated that world; through their intermediacy the powers of magic were brought into operation. The most frequently employed terms for magic were hashba‘at malachim and hashba‘at shedim, invocation and conjuration of angels and demons. The peculiar rôle of the angels, heavenly counterparts of all earthly phenomena, as well as the direct servants and emissaries of God, closest to His ear, rendered powerful indeed the man who possessed the secret of bending them to his will. The demons, on the other hand, invested with all the fearsome potencies that a still primitive, animistic Continue reading

Alphabet of Ben Sira

... to at least three hundred years before the creation of the Ben SiraAlphabet of ben Sirach

The Alphabet of ben Sirach (Alphabetum Siracidis, Othijoth ben Sira) is an anonymous medieval text inspired by the Wisdom of Sirach. It is dated to anywhere between A.D. 700 and 1000. It is a compilation of two lists of proverbs, 22 in Aramaic and 22 in Hebrew, both arranged as alphabetic acrostics. Each proverb is followed by an Haggadic commentary. The work has been characterized as satirical, and it contains references to masturbation, incest and flatulence. The text has been translated into Latin, Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, French and German. A partial English translation appeared in Stern and Mirsky (1998). Continue reading

Dark Son Azazel

Azazel wikiThe Case for Azazel being the Firstborn Seed of Lilith
By Mark Wayne Biggs
[Edited]

No study of Lilith would be complete without a discussion of the demon Azazel. This is true because several clues in many ancient texts – including the Torah, the Zohar, and the First Book of Enoch – indicate that Azazel was the seed of Lilith. The texts further hint that Azazel was not the product of Lilith mating with any ordinary man, but rather he was the firstborn seed resulting from her illicit mating with Semjaza, the leader of a group of fallen angels called Watchers.

LILITH
The Scarlet Woman
From Energy Enhancement

See part 1

Samael and Lilith were born as one, emanating from beneath the Throne of God with a great tumult. This refers to the Kabbalistic belief that certain angels were created in male-female pairs. Lilith was also known as Taninsam, based on the name of the intermediary between her and her husband. This intermediary will eat deadly poison at the hands of the Gabriel; it is an elixir of life for all whose inclination overcomes them to become a black psychopath. Continue reading

The Case for Lilith
By Mark Wayne Biggs

Of all the Jewish myths, the story of Lilith is undoubtedly the most fascinating. According to her legend Lilith was the first wife of Adam. But she was a failed mate who rebelled against her husband and fled from the garden to become the mother of demons. Her legend has influenced more modern monster mythologies than any other Jewish myth. Continue reading
