The Children of Agni

Exodus 20:18 "And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. 19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was......."

Now, in this chapter I will detail who the God of fire in the Bible really is among the different Mythos, and how He is described based from the Bible. So, to start this segment we will have to learn about the Hindu God called "Agni", which means fire in Hindi. In the Rig Vedas states of "33" gods being mentioned and recited to, but out of the 33 gods there are the two most known that have the most Hymns, and that is Indra the storm god and Agni the fire god. Indra would have the most Hymns in the Rig Vedas, but Agni would be the first and foremost in the beginning of each book to be recited to. Their relations is described as being twin brothers to each other.

So, when I began to study about Indra and Agni as the two most earliest deities that was chanted to, I find there are the other gods like Vayu (wind) Varuna (water) Soma (either the alcoholic drink of Indra or the moon deity) Yama the god of the underworld, Mitra, Surya (Sun God) etc. And then there are the gods like Rudra, Vishnu, the Rudras or Maruts as the storm deities and some of the earlier deities. It states that Indra would rule the storms and rain, Surya would rule the Heavens and Agni would rule the earth. But as the stories are formed, it appears that the earliest gods like Indra and Agni are demoted and worshiped on occasions based on the introduction of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer (respectively). However, even when I learned about their demotions, I would also see how their stories are reprised over time, as another god with a different name would often take their place along with their attributes (Stories of one battling the other).

(Note: Here in the Emerald Tablets "The Space Born" states this: "Mighty beyond words is the flame of the Cosmic, hanging in planes, unknown to man; mighty and balanced, moving in Order, music of harmonies, far beyond man. Speaking with music, singing with color, flame from the beginning of Eternity's ALL. Spark of the flame art thou, O my children, burning with color and living with music. List to the voice and thou shalt be free." The Key of Wisdom states this: "Mysteries there are in the Cosmos that unveiled fill the world with their light. Let he who would be free from the bonds of darkness first divine the material from the immaterial, the fire from the earth; for know ye that as earth descends to earth, so also fire ascends unto fire and becomes one with fire. He who knows the fire that is within himself shall ascend unto the eternal fire and dwell in it eternally.")

But first, let's learn about the God called Agni and how he will connect to the god called Rudra, who is then later called Shiva in the post Vedic stories. Now, upon learning about the God of fire, in the Rig Vedas would state that Agni would be described as a bird-like being who would carry the Amrit (the nectar of the gods) and would often disappear at times. He is said to be what they call Vaishvanara or the "cosmic soul" as a universal aspect. In the Upanishads, He would be described as the "all knowing" and "all seeing" one, so like the concept of God being everywhere is what Agni is shown, how the fire and light is in all things. Then the term "Matarisvan", (Growing in the mother or the swell) it states that He is formed from the friction of two sticks, and as a messenger who brings the fire to the Bhrigu sage from Vivasvat (Sun God, Surya). This is similar to the Titan Prometheus who also brings the fire from the gods to mankind. 

Other stories states that He is the twin brother to Indra as they are of the Devas. Other versions state that Agni was formed from the Primordial Creator Prajapati's third eye, and how Agni would be his soul as they are both father and son to each other, and as they both create the Universe together. This is similar to the Egyptian god Atum, who came forth from the egg and started to create life along with the Bennu bird as his helper. Other stories would show Agni to be the lightning, the Sun, and the fire on the earth, and would have the aspect of the Creator, the Maintainer and the Destroyer. However, due to his fire abilities, He would be the first destroyer prior to the coming of Shiva. In fact, the fiery Stambha (Fiery pillar) reveals that it is AGNI, who was in the beginning of the creation before time began and before the creation of the gods.

Now, there are two versions that state who created who amongst the different stories in Hinduism. One would be shown as Shiva who then creates Vishnu and Brahma as he is shown as a fiery pillar before them. And the other story states that it was Vishnu who created Shiva from his third eye, which is similar to Prajapati and Agni, and Atum and the Bennu bird. In one documentary stating on Shiva would state that Shiva is the destroying aspect of the Great Spirit Fire, along with the other aspects of the Preserver Vishnu and the Creator Brahma. (Although, Brahma would be similar to the Biblical Abram or Abraham and his wife as Sarasvati is similar to Sarai or Sarah)

Here in the Wiki states this: "The word Agni is used in many contexts, ranging from fire in the stomach, the cooking fire in a home, the sacrificial fire in an altar, the fire of cremation, the fire of rebirth, the fire in the energetic saps concealed within plants, the atmospheric fire in lightning and the celestial fire in the sun. In the Brahmanas layer of the Vedas, such as in section 5.2.3 of Shatapatha Brahmana, Agni represents all the gods, all concepts of spiritual energy that permeates everything in the universe. In the Upanishads and post-Vedic literature, Agni additionally became a metaphor for immortal principle in man, and any energy or knowledge that consumes and dispels a state of darkness, transforms and procreates an enlightened state of existence."

"Agni is originally conceptualized as the ultimate source of the "creator-maintainer-destroyer" triad, then one of the trinities, as the one who ruled the earth. His twin brother Indra ruled the atmosphere as the god of storm, rain and war, while Surya ruled the sky and heavens. His position and importance evolves over time, in the "creator-maintainer-destroyer" aspects of existence in Hindu thought."

"Rudra and Agni have a close relationship. The identification between Agni and Rudra in the Vedic literature was an important factor in the process of Rudra's gradual development into the later character as Rudra-Shiva. The identification of Agni with Rudra is explicitly noted in the Nirukta, an important early text on etymology, which says, "Agni is also called Rudra." The interconnections between the two deities are complex, and according to Stella Kramrisch: The fire myth of Rudra-Śiva plays on the whole gamut of fire, valuing all its potentialities and phases, from conflagration to illumination. In the Śatarudrīya, some epithets of Rudra, such as Sasipañjara ("Of golden red hue as of flame") and Tivaṣīmati ("Flaming bright"), suggest a fusing of the two deities. Agni is said to be a bull, and Lord Shiva possesses a bull as his vehicle, Nandi. The horns of Agni, who is sometimes characterized as a bull, are mentioned. In medieval sculpture, both Agni and the form of Shiva known as Bhairava have flaming hair as a special feature."

"In verse 18 of the Isha Upanishad, Agni is invoked with, "O Agni, you know all the paths, lead me on to success by the good path, keep me away from the wrong path of sin". "Vedic rituals involve Agni. He is a part of many Hindu rites-of-passage ceremonies such as celebrating a birth (lighting a lamp), prayers (aarti lamp), at weddings (the yajna where the bride and groom circle the fire seven times) and at death (cremation). According to Atharvaveda, it is Agni that conveys the soul of the dead from the pyre to be reborn in the next world or life. However, this role was in post-Vedic texts subsumed in the role of god Yama." (In the Chapter "Legends of the Bird", I detail how the original symbol of Agni is the Bird, specifically the "Phoenix")

"Agni is the essence of the knowledge of Existence. Agni destroys ignorance and all delusions, removes nescience. The Kanvasatpathabrahmanam (SB.IV.i.iv.11) calls Agni "wisdom". Agni is symbolism for "the mind swiftest among (all) those that fly." It also symbolises the soul; it is the power of change that cannot be limited or overcome. Light, heat, colour and energy are merely its outer attributes; inwardly, agni impels consciousness, perception and discernment."

"The design guidelines and specifications of his iconography are described in the Hindu Agama texts. He is shown with one to three heads, two to four armed, is typically red-complexioned or smoky-grey complexioned standing next to or riding a ram, with a characteristic dramatic halo of flames leaping upwards from his crown. He is shown as a strong looking man, sometimes bearded, with a large belly because he eats everything offered into his flames, with golden brown hair, eyes and mustache to match the color of fire." (Though this would be the post Vedic version of Agni, but later on I will detail how the Rig Vedas also states him to being a bull, a boar and a bird)

In the Wiki states this: "Two major festivals in Hinduism, namely Holi (festival of colors) and Diwali (festival of lights) incorporate Agni in their ritual grammar, as a symbol of divine energy. During the autumn celebrations of Diwali, traditional small fire lamps called Diya are included to mark the festivities. For Holi, Hindus burn bonfires as Holika, on the night before the spring festival. The bonfire marks god Agni, and in rural India mothers carry their babies around the fire clockwise on Holika in Agni's remembrance." (I will reveal how this connects to the real Passover in "The Real Aryans 1") So, there are many versions and origins based on the God Agni, depending on the era and who gives it. It states in the Shatapatha Brahman, that there were three other Agnis previously to the current fourth one, so it is evident that He would be the original Creator, Preserver and Destroyer.

Now, out of the origins, there is a description of Him being like a bird who would bring the elixir (nectar/fire) to mankind, in which would be the same as Prometheus bringing the fire to mankind. Here, Agni would be called "the heavenly Garutman" which is the bird Garuda who holds the nectar of the gods. The story of Garuda states that He was born from a stone egg from his father Kashyapa (Turtle) and Vinata, and comes out radiating like fire. It is said that Garuda can shapeshift as He is a trickster deity, and become small and large as He likes. His wings can shake the mountains and spin the axis of the three worlds (Heaven, Earth and Underworld).

Here is an excerpt from Wiki: "The origin myth found in many Indo-European cultures is one of a bird, or bird like being, that carries or brings fire from the gods to mankind. Alternatively, this messenger brings an elixir of immortality from heaven to earth. In either case, the bird returns everyday with sacrificial offerings for the gods, but sometimes the bird hides or disappears without trace. Agni is molded in similar mythical themes, in some hymns with the phrase the "heavenly bird that flies".

Now, Agni in the Rig Vedas would be known as a messenger god or the herald of the three worlds, and would oversee the sacrifices of the gods from mankind. So, like the Israelites would do the animal sacrifices and burn them as an offering to the God of fire in the Bible, then the same is done towards Agni as the tradition states "Agnihotra" or the sacrificial fire offerings that is done in their home. The last animal sacrifice was done by a Brahman sect in the 1970s as they would sacrifice a goat, and also make a brick figure of a bird (Agni in the form of a bird, see "Agnicayana" documentary). Then in the book "The Theogony of Hesiod" would also state of the Titan Prometheus overseeing the animal sacrifices and burnt offerings from mankind to the gods as well. In one story states that it was Prometheus who helped mankind and would be a considered protector to them from the wrathful anger of Zeus and the gods. The Titan Prometheus was also said to have tricked Zeus and gods to choosing the meat offering with the fat and the bones instead of the best portions of the offerings, which is then given to mankind to enjoy. This is where the trickster aspect comes in as Prometheus is supposed to mean "Forethought" and would disappear from the council of the gods. Zeus would be like Indra as they both have the same wrathful characteristic, although Agni is said to have a fiery natured aspect as well.

Agni in the Rig Vedas was said to be the "God of mankind" and a creator of all life. This can par with Prometheus in the aftermath of the Titanomachy (Gods vs Titan war) which lasted 10 years. Here the story states that it was He and his brother Epimetheus (meaning afterthought) who would create the animals and the earth. He gave every creation a gift of ability, but when it came to the last creation called man, he gave him the power of fire. (In another version states that after Prometheus created man, and Athena was the one who breathe her spirit into man to bring life) And it was the fire that made mankind into an enlightened being, but Zeus apparently didn't want mankind to grow from their knowledge, so he took away the fire from them. And from then Mankind became ignorant, but Prometheus was able to distract the gods, and steal the fire from Hephaestus' cauldron and came down bringing the fire to them.

Then as the story goes, Zeus and the gods bound prometheus to a rock with chains and to have the eagle eat his liver everyday (the liver grows back as He is immortal). The fire resembles the enlightenment as the term "Lucifer" means lightbearer, then this is where the origin of Lucifer would connect to as Agni is the one who brings the fire to mankind. (Lucifer is not a name of a being but a title for "light bearer" or "light bringer". I will reveal how the woman is also called "Lucifer" in the coming chapters)

Then there is the story of Loki as he also would be shown as a trickster deity, and was said to be mischeivous as the Asgardians didn't like Him. Loki was said to be responsible for the death of Baldur (the god of light) and that the Asgardians bound Him to a rock with the entrails of one of his children, and a serpent was placed dripping poison on his face. Now, Loki was said to not be of the Asgardians, but came from a giant race called the "Jotunns" who are like the Titans of the Greco-Roman stories. And if that is the case, since there are different versions of Agni, then I can safely say that Agni as a messenger deity would not be of the Devas, but of the Asuras or Danavas. The Danavas would be considered the archenemy or half brothers to the Devas (Suras), as they constantly battle each other for the three worlds. And many times when the Devas would lose they would go to Vishnu for help to take their kingdom back. So as Loki would have the similar aspect to Prometheus, then possibly the same punishment would be done towards Agni as He fits the same aspect as well. So, now we can see how Prometheus, Loki and Agni are really one and the same, and how they came from a different race living with the gods. (The reader can look up "Loki Heals", as a Blogger details some interesting connections between AGNI and Loki) 

There is another name to this God in the Mayan mythos called Kiniche' Ahua or Kakmaw in the Yucatan language. He is said to be a middle-aged man with an aquiline nose, large square eyes, cross-eyed, and a filed incisor in the upper row of teeth. Here in Wiki states: "Kinich Ahau was apparently considered an aspect of the upper god, Itzamna. He may conceivably be related to the patron deity of Izamal, Kinich Kakmo 'Fire Parrot', who was reported to descend to earth while the sun was standing in the zenith in order to consume offerings."

So from this description, it reveals this God to be Fudo Myoo/ Acala of the Japanese (See "Case of Ahkenaten") and would be a bringer of fire who would take up the offerings from the people to the gods. And to call Him a "fire parrot" means that He is bird-like in appearance thus connecting to Agni. Then the real appearance of this deity would be the Japanese god called "Tengu", who is shown looking like a bird (also means "Heavenly dog" or "sky sentinel") " According to them (Maya mythos), Kinich Ahau, the elder brother of the upper god, will put an end to this world by descending from the sky and have his jaguars devour mankind." Here shows the "exact" description of the God of fire of the Mayans, to be the "same" as the Fire God of the Japanese called "Fudo-Myo-o"....

Now, that we connected the dots as Agni is Loki, Prometheus, Kiniche' Kakmaw and Fudo Myoo, then I can safely say that this would be the very angel that met Moses behind in the burning bush scene. Let's furthermore connect this to the God Kojin that is mentioned in "Shiva in the Bible". Here is an excerpt in Wiki stating the connection to this deity:

"The name Sanbō-Kōjin means three-way rough deity, and he is considered a deity of uncertain temper. Fire, which he represents, is a destructive force, as shown in the myth of Kagu-tsuchi, the original fire deity, whose birth caused his mother's death. However, Kōjin embodies fire controlled and turned toward a good purpose. He is said to destroy all impurity. He is also responsible for watching over the household and reporting any misdeeds to the kami of the village or city. These reports are discussed, and the according rewards or punishments assigned, by an assembly of gods in Izumo province in the tenth month of the traditional lunar calendar. Kōjin is sometimes identified as an incarnation of Fudō Myō-Ō, who is likewise depicted as surrounded by flames and tasked with dealing with misdeeds. Traditionally, a representation of Kōjin is placed near the hearth. This representation might be a simple fuda (memorial tablet) in many homes, or it might be as elaborate as a statue, as is common in Buddhist temples. In his statues, Kōjin is depicted with flaming hair, fangs, and a contorted face, and he often wields a bow and arrows. He has two pairs of hands. Some representations of Kōjin present him as possessing three heads. The Kōjiki mentions an imperial script detailing instructions for worshipping Kōjin, in the form of Kamado-gami." (See "The Real Aryans 1&2", "God of the Aryans" and "Truth about Shang-di")

In the wiki states this: "In the Red Horn is a culture hero in Siouan oral traditions, specifically of the Ioway and Hocąk (Winnebago) nations. He has different names. Only in Hocąk literature is he known as "Red Horn" (Hešucka), but among the Ioway and Hocągara both, he is known by one of his variant names, "He Who Wears (Man) Faces on His Ears". This name derives from the living faces on his earlobes (Hocąk), or earbobs that come to life when he places them on his ears (Ioway). Elsewhere, he is given yet another name, "Red Man" (Wąkšucka), because his entire body is red from head to toe."

There are five members of the group called "The Wisdom Kings, being led by Fudo-myo-o (The term "Wisdom King", relates to Thoth who was known as the God of Wisdom). So, just like the Japanese fire god Kojin who is shown with "three faces", in the American Indian stories He is called "man who wears faces for ears".

Here is what Deuteronomy 32:37-42 states of the God of fire having arrows and a sword "And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever. If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy."

Now, let's look at the Acala/Fudo-Myo-o in the Wiki: "Acala or Achala (Sanskrit: अचल "Immovable") is a dharmapala (protector of the Dharma), prominent in Vajrayana Buddhism and East Asian Buddhism. He is classed among the Wisdom Kings and is preeminent among the Five Wisdom Kings of the Womb Realm. Accordingly, his figure occupies an important hierarchical position in the Mandala of the Two Realms. In China, he is known through esoteric Tangmi traditions as Budong Mingwang ("The Immovable Wisdom King")."

"In Japan, he is known as Fudō Myōō, which is the on'yomi reading of his Chinese name. Acala is especially important in Japanese Buddhism, where he is venerated in the Shingon, Tendai, Zen, and Nichiren sects, as well as in Shugendō. He is also highly revered among some Yakuza members, who often draw on his intense facial expression and demeanor. In later Tantric scriptures, the epithet Caṇḍaroṣaṇa and Caṇḍamahāroṣaṇa became more common, and he is known as such in countries like Nepal and Tibet."

"...His face is expressive of extreme wrath, wrinkle-browed, left eye squinted or looking askance, lower teeth biting down the upper lip. He has the physique of a corpulent (round-bellied) child. He bears a straight sword in his right hand, and a lariat or noose in his left hand. He is engulfed in flame, and seated on a huge rock base. Acala is said to be a powerful deity who protects the faithful by burning away all impediments (antarāya) and defilements (kleśa), thus aiding them towards enlightenment."

"Originally the Mahayana deity Acalanātha, whose name means "immovable protector", Acala was incorporated into Vajrayana Buddhism as a servant of the Buddha. In Tangmi (Tang-era Chinese Vajrayana), his name was translated as Budong "immovable" (Chinese: 不動; pinyin: Búdòng, Middle Chinese: /pǝw dungx/). In turn, the deity was imported into Japan as "Immovable" (不動, Fudō) by the priest Kūkai (died 835) who was studying in China as a member of the Kentoshi mission and founded Shingon Buddhism. Scholars such as Miyeko Murase state that the origins of this Buddhist deity are in the Hindu god Shiva, particularly his attributes of destruction and reincarnation."

"He evolves into a deity invoked in Buddhist rituals to "frighten gods, titans, men and destroy the strength of demons", and he slays all ghosts and evil spirits. In some Buddhist texts such as the Sādhanamālā, the Hindu gods Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma and Kandarpa (god of love) are said to be "wicked" because they cause endless rebirth, and these gods are terrified of Acala because he carries a rope to bind them."

"The flaming nimbus or halo behind the statue is known as the "Garuda flame", after the mythical firebreathing bird from Indian mythology....At temples dedicated to Acala, priests perform the Fudō-hō (不動法), or ritual service to enlist the deity's power of purification to benefit the faithful. This rite routinely involves the use of the Homa ritual (護摩, goma) as a purification tool. Here states that Acala/Fud-Myo-o, has the "flaming nimbus", which is known as the "Garuda flame". AGNI was "originally" known as the fiery bird who took the Elixir (Amrit, nectar of the gods) to mankind. He is Prometheus, as the one who would be called "Lucifer" (light bearer), as he took the fire from the gods and gave it to mankind.

This reveals that Fudo Myoo, Acala, Kojin is Agni altogether one and the same. The Japanese would have the fire offerings to Kojin in the same manner as the Brahmans towards Agni. And they are shown to be bird-like and would carry the sacrifices to the gods. KJV Exodus 22:18 "Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people" (However, I will reveal that the God of fire was worshiped "solely" by the Israelites, later in this chapter). Now, it is interesting when it states that Kojin is shown with "flaming hair" as if He is a red-headed deity, which is also shown the same way with Fudo-Myoo, who has red hair hair as well. Prometheus was said to have red hair and Loki was also said to have red hair. Then amongst the Hindu stories, the Danavas/ Asuras would be shown sometimes as having "red-hair" as well. So, does the Titans, the Asuras and the Jotunns have something to do with having "red-hair"? And they all have the presence of fire as well? (See "Legend of the Bird" and "The Asuras")

Exodus 19:18 "And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly". 

Now, the God in the bible is described to be fiery in nature and is called a consuming fire. This seems to connect to the Islamic Lore as the Jinn are said to be made from smokeless fire, in which connects to the Bible as God’s presence is that of a smoking furnace with flames encompassing round about. The Islamic lore states the Jinn being created from fire and the tribe of angels being created from light, and how they would battle each other before the coming creation of mankind. This reminds me of the book and the movie “Lord of the Rings” by JRR Tolkien and how he states of the dark forces being made from the flames of fire fighting the forces of light. Now, the leader of the Jinn is said to be called Iblis meaning “the despaired one” (although not the real name) who had a fall out against Allah on not bowing down to the newly created Adam. Here Iblis quotes “I am made from fire and he is made from clay, for I am better than him.” There is a bit of irony here as the stories state the Jinn to being a fierce race with a violent and fiery nature. So, in the bible, when the God of fire states “I am a jealous God and a consuming fire” does this statement not show His fiery nature to connect to the Jinn?

Now, Iblis was said to have fought against his own kind along with the angels to quell the violence of his race on earth. The story states that the Jinn race would wreak havoc on the planet, thus Allah had to order the angels to destroy them for their chaotic nature. But Iblis who lived among the angels was said to have fought against them, until they were only a few left to repopulate. In the Islamic lore would state that there would be Jinn prophets for Allah, and that they would also get killed by their own kind, so the order to destroy them was put out. Then as the Jinn’s were left to repopulate, Allah states that He will make another creation, but the angels said to Him “Are you going to make a creation that will cause harm?” The response from Allah is “I know what you do not know”. So as the newly created being called man came into existence and Allah tells all the angels to bow down to him out of respect, though everyone bows down except for Iblis. Then as the rest of the story goes, Iblis would be the one to cause the fall of Adam and Eve by eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Now, among some stories, would state that Iblis would be found as a child and was taken into the realm of the angels, and was a great praiser to Allah. It also states that He was a messenger to the people of the earth, and the angels of the Heavens. (This is what the movie "Thor" is about as Loki had found out that he came from the Ice giants. That movie is subtly revealing the story of Iblis. See "Legend of the Bird", "The Asuras" and "God of the Aryans")

So, do you not see the connections? Even the story of Iblis fighting against the Jinn is the same as Prometheus helping to overthrow Kronos and the Titans. And strangely, Iblis' life is similar to Loki as one is not of the Asgardians or angels, but came from a race of Jinn and the other the Jotunns. The fiery nature of the Jinn seems to be on par to the Asuras from where Agni came from. So when they state "fiery" natured and having red flaming hair, does this mean that the Asuras, the Jinn, the Titans and the Jotunn are red headed people? Let's start connecting some dots here with the story of Red Horn among the American Indian Lore. Now Red Horn (He Who Wears Man Faces on His Ears) was one of the five sons of Earthmaker, whom the Creator fashioned with his own hands and sent to earth to rescue humanity. During his sojourn on earth, he contested both giants and water spirits, and led war parties against the bad spirits who plagued humanity. He is said to be a bird-like deity, red-complexioned from head to toe with red hair, and his star is said to be the "bright and morning star" Venus. So, here also shows the same story compared to Iblis, Prometheus, Loki and Agni. In the Yoruba myths, the story of Ogun, the god of metals and fire, came to earth fighting the demons and monsters, thus leading the way for humanity to live on earth, also mirrors to that of the legend of Red Horn, who as well fought the evil spirits that plagued mankind. It is said that he would have an aggression like that of the dog and would live in the underworld.

Now, in the Quran I came across this chapter called "An-najm" which means “The star”, and in verse 49 states:“And that He (Allah) is the Lord of Sirius.” if you were to look up the word “morning star” then you will find the name to connect to three celestial bodies. One is the famous bright planet called Venus, then there is the star called Sirius which is located around the Canis major constellation. Then there is the least known morning star which is Mercury. The star Sirius is also known as the “dog star.” Among the Hindus it is the symbol of Rudra called Mrgavyadha which means “deer hunter”, or Lubdhaka or the “hunter”, as he is known for the dog symbolism. Then when you cross reference this star, it shows among the Scandinavians to be called "Lokabrenna", as “Loki’s Torch”. So, does Loki have a connection to Rudra? And why call it “Loki’s Torch?" Prometheus is shown carrying a torch and Agni is said to have brought the fire to mankind, so now Loki’s star is also called by this name indicating Him to be a light bearer (Lucifer). Now, Rudra is said to have a connection to dogs as His symbol. Loki was also said to be a fiery God as well as having red hair and a link to dogs like Rudra. One of his children is the great wolf Fenrir, along with the world serpent Jorgmandur, the daughter Hel and the eight-legged steed sleipnir. Although, Loki would also have the bird symbolism, as he shapeshifts into a bird in one point of the story.

These are mere symbolism based on the God of fire as the "red devil". In Chinese astronomy Sirius is known as the star of the "Celestial wolf". Many nations among the indigenous peoples of North America also associated Sirius with canines; the Seri and Tohono O'odham of the southwest note the star as a dog that follows mountain sheep, while the Blackfoot called it "Dog-face". The Cherokee paired Sirius with Antares as a dog-star guardian of either end of the "Path of Souls". The Pawnee of Nebraska had several associations; the Wolf (Skidi) tribe knew it as the "Wolf Star", while other branches knew it as the "Coyote Star". Further north, the Alaskan Inuit of the Bering Strait called it "Moon Dog". Even the word "Tengu" is supposed to connect to "Heavenly dog" and "heavenly bird".

Then there is the fire god Sutur among the Norse Mythology and how it also ties in with Agni. For Sutur is supposed to mean “black” due to the fire encompassing all around Him and has a connection to the Navajo black god of fire story. Sutur is the fire god who is supposed to reside in the realm of Muspelheim, the land of fire and has the importance of bringing the world to an end by fire.

This connects exactly to the Bible as “the God destroying the world by fire” in 2nd Peter 3:10-12 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of holy conversation and godliness. Looking for and hastening unto the coming of the day of the God, where in the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?”

Isaiah 66:15-17 “For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to rend his anger with fury, and with rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.”

Isaiah 65:17 “For, behold, I create a new heaven and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”

Isaiah 42:15 “I will waste the mountains and the hills, and dry up all their herbs: and will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.” These are some of the examples of the God in the Bible connecting to Sutur in that aspect. Destroying the heavens and the earth with fire is what the Norse mythos would be called “Ragnarok.”

Now what does that tell you? The very God of fire in the Bible is Allah, who is Lord of Sirius as the dog star? Then if that is case, then there is a cover up as to who Iblis really is, and how He is the God in the Bible. (See "Lord of Sirius 1&2" for indepth into this star)

 

They make the God of fire into the popular Marvel comic book villain Surtur the fire god. Shiva’s symbol as the crescent moon, is where the supposed “devil horns” appear in pop culture, art and religion. 

However, this is only one version about Iblis, for another version is told among the Yezidi people of Iraq. Now it is unfortunate from their situation by the Muslims, as the people have a different view towards the one that is deemed the devil. They honor the being called the peacock angel or Tawuse melek as it states. Their version of the story based on the peacock angel is the same as Iblis but slightly different. For when Allah tells everyone to bow down to Adam and Tawuse Melek does not do so, but instead states that he won’t bow down to him because “he is only a created being from the earth, but it should be Allah as the one to be bowed down to”.

So, it states that Allah deemed it as a test for all the angels and Tawuse melek thus became the leader of the angels. Although, another version states after the same situation takes place and after his fall, he repented to Allah and was reinstated to his former position. Another version shows that the Peacock angel would protect the newly created beings from the wrath of Allah, as Tawuse melek showed kindness to mankind. It is said that when Adam and Eve was created, He taught them and their children the "72" languages and how to cultivate and take care of earth. So, this is a different story compared to the Islamic version, but here I see how the Peacock angel is similar to Agni, Loki as well as Prometheus, for they were the cultural heroes that cared for mankind and protected them from the wrath of the gods. Let's see some of the excerpt from Wiki on the Angel Azazel and Iblis:

"In many Islamic and Islam-related traditions, Azazil (Arabic: عزازيل Azāzīl, also known as Arabic: حارث Ḥārith ) is the name of Iblis before he was expelled from heaven. Although not mentioned namely in the Quran, he is well known in different traditions, such as Tafsir, Qisas Al-Anbiya and mystic oral traditions. He is usually seen as an archangel, but also regarded as a jinn according to some reports.....Similar to the name of Azazel, one of the fallen angels in Book of Enoch, Islamic philologists relate his name to the words aziz and il (God's dear) or to azl (removal). His name further reflects his inclusion among the archangels."

"According to many Classical scholars, based on the reports of the Sahaba, before Iblis was expelled from heaven, he was called Azazil. Quranic exegesis offers two different depictions of Iblis. One with Azazil beginning as a noble angel who later loses his position, while the other counts him as an ignoble jinn, who works his way up to heaven. According to whose interpretations legitimated by the authority of Ibn Abbas, Azazil was the leader of angels and sent by God to terminate the jinn, who lived on earth before humanity. After his victory, he grew arrogant and declined God's command to prostrate himself before Adam. Arguing that he was superior to humans, God expelled him from heaven and he became an accursed shaitan (Shaitan Rajim). When the Quran refers to Iblis as one of the jinn, this tradition states it does not refer to Azazil being one of the jinn who lived on earth, but to a group of angels who were entrusted with the task to guard the entrance to Jannah. Therefore, it is their relation to Jannah the term refers to Satan as a jinn in Quran."

"Another tradition, by Ubay ibn Ka'b, who claimed to have found it in the Torah, states the jinn were angelic creatures, who descended to earth and became endowed with sexual desires. They stayed pious for a while, but started to murder, drink wine, and cause injustice on earth. Azazil parted from his community and committed his life to the worship of God in isolated places. Soon, Azazil was chosen to send messengers to the jinn community, but every time Azazil sent one, the jinn killed the messenger. When God sent down an army of angels under the command of Azazil to defeat their corrupted fellows. In yet another tradition, asserted by the Brethren of Purity, Azazil used to be a jinni from earth, but was taken captive by the angels during war. Among the angels, Azazil impressed the angels by his piety and joined them in worship and service, but lose his angelic state after he disobeys God." (Just like the story of Red Horn)

"Al-Hallaj mentioned Azazil in his collection Tawasin. Here, Azazils disobedience to refuse God's command is a way to hallow His name. Chapter Six is dedicated to the self-defence of Azazil, and in one section Hallaj explains how each of the letters of Azazil's name relate to his personality. Unlike many other Sufi writers, Hallaj declined that Azazil will be restored to God's grace, thus after the Day of Judgment, he will still be damned. Since Azazil originated from fire, fire will be his final destiny."

"Azazil is also mentioned three times in Rumis Masnavi, emphasizing the importance of discipline and humility: Through discipline and humility this heaven has been filled with light, and through discipline the angel became immaculate and holy. By reason of irreverence, the sun was eclipsed, and insolence caused Azazil to be turned back from the door. When Azazil acted arrogantly, he was abandoned to hell in spite of his former high position. According to Al-Jili God created the sublime angels out of the light of Muhammad and Azazil and his followers of baser elements. Azazil was an angel of single-minded devotion. Failing to realize that bowing before Adam in accordance with God's command, is equal as bowing to God Himself, he refused to prostrate himself and received God's curse, becoming God's instrument of darkness and misleading."

"In Umm al-Kitab, an 8th century Ismaili work, Azazil is the first creation of God, the High King. God gave him the power of creation, but Azazil boasted with his loaned power, claiming divinity for himself, describing himself as another God beside the High King. To prove that Azazil's creation only depends on the power of his own creator, God makes a new creation, opposed by Azazil. Every time, Azazil again claims to like God, he and his fellow angels lose colour, becoming darker and inferior, and are thrown into lower celestial spheres until they end up on earth, which is made out of the essence of Azazil's creations." 

"As with the Gnostic Demiurge, Azazil traps the life-forces of the heavenly realm and captures them in the material realm. Azazil features as one of the first angels in an Alevi oral tradition, there he is informed by the archangel Cebrail (Gabriel), about their creator. Along with the other archangels, Cebrail leads Azazil to a lamp with seven doors. They shall serve here for 1001 days, so the door will open. After the archangels entered the lamp, they saw two lights forming one body. The archangels were commanded to prostrate before the light. All followed the order but Azazil, who refused to prostrate himself, since the light, as something that was created, could not be the creator, so he turned back to the door to stay in the former service of God. This narration explains that Azazil stood at God's service, but he despised that he saw when the door opened and decided to move into the Ego World, causing the later enmity between Satan and humanity."

"In Yazidism, Azazil appears as one of the archangels along with Jabra'il, Mika'il, Rafa'il (Israfil), Dadra'il, Azrael and Shamkil (Shemna'il). An eminent Yazidi legend tells about being Azazil, banished to hell. But he repented his sin, by crying until the fires of hell were extinguished. In the Black Book Azazil is erroneously identified with Melek Taus by Western translators, who confused Azrael (or Jabrail) with Azazil."

Then from the Wiki based on Azazel states this: "Azazel" is, according to the Book of Enoch, a fallen Angel. In the Bible, the name Azazel appears in association with the scapegoat rite; the name represents a desolate place where a scapegoat bearing the sins of the Jews during Yom Kippur was sent. During the Second Temple period, he appears as a fallen angel responsible for introducing humans to forbidden knowledge. His role as a fallen angel partly remains in Christian and Islamic traditions."

"In the Hebrew Bible, the term is used thrice in Leviticus 16, where two male goats were to be sacrificed to Yahweh and one of the two was selected by lot, for Yahweh is seen as speaking through the lots. One goat is selected by lot and sent into the wilderness לַעֲזָאזֵל‎, "for Azazel". This goat was then cast out in the desert as part of Yom Kippur. In older English versions, such as the King James Version, the phrase la-azazel is translated as "as a scapegoat"; however, in most modern English Bible translations, it is represented as a name in the text: "Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house. He shall take the two goats and set them before the Lord at the entrance of the tent of meeting; and Aaron shall cast lots on the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other lot for Azazel."

"Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for the Lord, and offer it as a sin offering; but the goat on which the lot fell for Azazel shall be presented alive before the Lord to make atonement over it, that it may be sent away into the wilderness to Azazel. — Leviticus 16:6-10, New Revised Standard Version Later rabbis, interpreting azazel as azaz (rugged) and el (of God), take it as referring to the rugged and rough mountain cliff from which the goat was cast down." (However, I will reveal how the God of fire that told this to the Children of Israel "is" Azazil/Iblis Himself)

Enochic literature: "In the Dead Sea Scrolls, the name Azazel occurs in the line 6 of 4Q203, The Book of Giants, which is a part of the Enochic literature found at Qumran. Despite the expectation of Brandt (1889) to date no evidence has surfaced of Azazel as a demon or god prior to the earliest Jewish sources among the Dead Sea Scrolls. According to the Book of Enoch, which brings Azazel into connection with the Biblical story of the fall of the angels, located on Mount Hermon, a gathering-place of demons of old, Azazel is one of the leaders of the rebellious Watchers in the time preceding the Flood; he taught men the art of warfare, of making swords, knives, shields, and coats of mail, and taught women the art of deception by ornamenting the body, dyeing the hair, and painting the face and the eyebrows, and also revealed to the people the secrets of witchcraft and corrupted their manners, leading them into wickedness and impurity until at last he was, at Yahweh's command, bound hand and foot by the archangel Raphael and chained to the rough and jagged rocks of [Ha] Dudael (= Beth Ḥadudo), where he is to abide in utter darkness until the great Day of Judgment, when he will be cast into the fire to be consumed forever. The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin. — Book of Enoch 10:8". (This was the binding of Prometheus. Loki and the Dragon bound by the Angel in Revelations 20)

In the Wiki based on "Satan" states this: "The Muslim historian Al-Tabari, who died in around 923 AD, writes that, before Adam was created, earthly jinn made of smokeless fire roamed the earth and spread corruption. He further relates that Iblis was originally an angel named Azazil or Al-Harith, from a group of angels, in contrast to the jinn, created from the fires of simoom, who was sent by God to confront the earthly jinn. Azazil defeated the jinn in battle and drove them into the mountains, but he became convinced that he was superior to humans and all the other angels, leading to his downfall. In this account, Azazil's group of angels were called jinn because they guarded Jannah (Paradise). In another tradition recorded by Al-Tabari, Satan was one of the earthly jinn, who was taken captive by the angels and brought to Heaven as a prisoner. God appointed him as judge over the other jinn and he became known as Al-Hakam. He fulfilled his duty for a thousand years before growing negligent, but was rehabilitated again and resumed his position until his refusal to bow before Adam."

It's interesting as Iblis was taken captive by the Angels and brought to Heaven as a prisoner, because based from this information is detailing more about the Angels to being something else entirely....

Then in the “The book of Enoch” details the angels leaving their stations to taking the women of earth, and thus produce the giants supposedly 450 feet tall. Then it details how they taught mankind warfare, the use of herbs and incantations, as well as the signs of the sun, the moon and stars to even writing on paper. And as stated, they corrupted themselves after having learned all the things of heaven and their offspring giants were killing the population. So, in turn God sent the angels to bind those fallen angels (200 angels supposedly) and cast them into Tartarus for their punishment. Then the leaders Azazel and Samyaza were chained by Michael the Archangel and cast into everlasting darkness, and then a flood was sent to destroy the giants and all life on the earth except for Noah and his family. So, even the book of Enoch gives details of the fallen angels symbolically giving the fire to mankind, but in exchange for the women, and due to the corruption of their unholy union, their offspring started to eat people and create havoc on earth.

Now the book seems interesting, but I can tell that there are problems in this book which doesn’t make sense to me. Like the giants being 450 feet would seem too big due to the intermingling of the angels and the women, and how can they be destroyed by a flood if they are 450 feet tall?  However, in the book of Genesis 6:4 states “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” This verse alone states that there were giants "already" on the earth before the sons of God came unto the women, and they produced “men of renown” not giants. Then in the “Book of Enoch”, God states how man wasn’t supposed to learn the things of heaven which includes tools of warfare, magic, writing and reading, learning about the signs of the sun, the moon and the stars etc. So, even writing and reading wasn’t supposed to be given to mankind, because they were supposed to be created for a different purpose. (I find it interesting that witchcraft and magic is considered one of the “secrets” of heaven)

Now, in the "Emerald Tablets" tells the story of the spirits looking down from the heavens and seeing mankind under the control of the gods who came from the cosmos. So, to free them from their oppression they went down taking forms of physical flesh, and created an inner world under the earth and would teach man about the fire (symbolizing enlightenment). This somewhat ties to Agni coming down from Surya the sun god to give enlightenment to mankind. A similar reference is shown in the story of Xototl the dog god and Quetzalcoatl the serpent deity, who are said to have stolen fire from the underworld to give to create mankind. The same goes for the Maori story of Maui the demigod stealing fire from the underworld to give to mankind (See the movie "Moana"). There would be American Indian stories showing the cultural hero in the form of a Rabbit or coyote stealing something can also synchronize with the other mythos of a deity stealing the fire. Veles of the Slavic mythology was said to have stolen the fire from the storm god Perun before being caught and destroyed. In the Sumerian story details how the Anzu bird was said to have stolen the tablets of destiny from Enlil, and how his son Ninurta was the one to battle him and to retrieve it.

Now they seem to all have taken the fire from the gods to give to mankind and be described as being "bird-like". There are bird like deities that became immortal due to eating the fruit or peach of Immortality. One is named "Leizhenzi" and the other "Leigong". There is also "Zhurong" as the Fire God who fights against the water spirit GongGong. Zhurong would be depicted as having "bird-like" features as well as Lei Gong, who would be depicted as having "red-hair" similar to Red Horn. Below is Karura the Japanese version of Garuda.

Exodus 19:4 “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you up on eagle’s wings, and brought you unto myself.” 

Now, let's go further and start connecting the God of fire to the one they called "The Red Dragon" that is written in the Bible. Because now from the past info, we can see how the one that was either a messenger or a Creator, was deemed a devil by the gods. Is this the propaganda that is being told to everyone that Lucifer the fallen angel is the source of our problem to this day?

Let's see the story "Journey to the West" which is about Sun Wukong the Monkey King who had fought against the gods of Heaven. The story states that Sun Wukong was born from a stone egg and came out radiating like fire. He grows up living among the other demons and and goes to learn martial arts and comes to learn the "72" shapeshifting techniques. He gets picked up by the gods in Heaven and comes to live with them, but doesn't like the way the angels treat him. So, he steals and eats the peaches of Immortality, swallows the pills of enlongevity, and gets his name erased from the book of death when he was taken into hell. He later proves to be formidable as he was able to take a cudgel weapon from the Ocean, gets the Phoenix armor and because of the food he ate, he becomes a fire deity. He goes out to defeat the gods and creates havoc in the Heavens until the Buddha comes and puts a stop to him. Afterwards He is placed underneath a mountain for 500 years as a prison. It is very interesting that he would be care free and proud of himself, similar to the pride of Lucifer. 

A similar story is stated from Garuda, as He also comes out of the stone egg radiating like fire, and had to go and steal the Amrit from Heaven on the account of his mother (Vinata) being ransomed by the serpent race (his half brothers). He goes and fights against the gods and defeats them until Vishnu comes and puts a stop to him. Although Vishnu didn't fight him, but shows that Garuda is given immortality and becomes Vishnu's vehicle. The ransom is situated out in this story, but another version states that Garuda would be proud for his abilities, but gets humbled by Vishnu (Vishnu would be compared to the Buddha). Then there is the monkey god Hanuman who is also given immortality, has the ability to shapeshift, and becomes humbled by the gods. 

The two Chinese bird deities that became immortal are Leigong and Leizhenzi, which are said to have eaten of the peach of immortality, became immortal wielding weapons of lightning. Then there is the Asura named Rahu who was able to take a sip of the nectar and become immortal despite Vishnu cutting his head off. 

Now, from this we can connect to the legendary fire bird called the "Phoenix", which is a bird that dies into ashes and gets reborn. The number of the Phoenix depends from 500 to 1000 years. This word can be broken down to Pho-Enix, Pa-Hanok to the "House of Enoch". The legend of the Phoenix seems to be based on the story of Enoch who was "taken" by god. Enoch was the one who never saw death but became immortal, or a man who became an angel. Then there is the "Emerald Tablets" as Thoth the Atlantean was taken up to heaven by the gods and became immortal. It is interesting as Thoth connects to the bird Ibis (Iblis) and the Baboon Thoth which connects to Sun Wukong who was taken to Heaven. Here is an excerpt from "The Secret Doctrine"  by Madame Blavatsky: "Seth, the reputed forefather of Israel, is only a Jewish travesty of Hermes, the God of Wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Seth, Set, and Satan. He is also Typhon -- the same as Apophis, the Dragon slain by Horus; for Typhon was also called Set. He is simply the dark side of Osiris, his brother, as Angra Mainyu is the black shadow of Ahura-mazda." 

It is interesting how Set is mentioned here, because just learning about Him states that He is the god of fire, chaos, envy, a trickster and His symbol is Mercury, and is the Roman version of Hermes, who in turn would be Thoth and then Enoch. So, it seems that she is right as this deity is the same one that fell from Heaven as all Satanic mythos indicate. Even Set's envious nature is the same as the God of fire in the Bible, as He is a "Jealous God and a Consuming fire", and states "Thou shalt have no other gods before me". The dragon Apophis is the one that is slain by Ra, and Set has the conflict with Horus. The symbol of Set is an unidentified Typhonian beast that looks like a dog-like beast. Thoth is the God that never saw death like Enoch. Enoch was "365" years old when He went up to Heaven. 

Now, even the Egyptian deity Set was also said to have "red-hair" and Sun Wukong would be shown with either "red-hair" (sometimes blondish hair) and be demonized as the one who fought against the gods of Heaven. Then there is the twin brother to Quetzalcoatl called "Xolotl", who was said to live in the underworld and be called the "lightning beast", as he cast lightning from below. (This is the same deity that stole the fire from the underworld, which strangely connects to what Jesus states: "I saw Satan fall as lightning from Heaven". This pays homage to the movie "The Truman Show" as a lamp written down as "Sirius" falls down to the earth, thus could link to the dog star that fallen from heaven)

Even the God Hermes is shown to connect to the Hopi God called "Masau'u", with whom is also called "The Great Spirit". It is apparent that the Yezidis state the God Masau'u would be Tawus Melek as they have similar stories. Let's look at some of the excerpts from a book called "Pueblo Gods and Myths" by Hamilton A. Tyler. "Here is a thorough, and long-needed, presentation of the nature of the Pueblo gods and myths. The Pueblo Indians, which include the Hopi, Zufii, and Keres groups, and their ancestors are closely bound to the Plateau region of the United States, . . . and-especially in recent years-New Mexico and Arizona. . . . There is an unmistakable analogy between Masau’u [Hopi] and the Christian Devil, and between the Greek god Hermes, who guided dead souls on their journey to the nether world. Mr. Tyler has drawn many useful comparisons between the religions of the Pueblos and the Greeks. ‘Because there is a widespread knowledge of the Greek gods and their ways,’ the author writes, ‘many people will thus be at ease with the Pueblo gods and myths.’ Of utmost importance is the final chapter of the book, which relates Pueblo cosmology to contemporary Western thought. . . . This account of their [the Pueblos] epic struggIe to accommodate themselves and their society to the cosmic order is ‘must’ reading for historians, +ethnologists, students of comparative religions, and for all who take an interest in the role of religious devotion in their own lives." 

In the website on The Peacock angel states this: "The Hopis of Arizona know the Peacock Angel as their Masau’u, the King of the World during this era of the Fourth World. According to their tradition, Masau’u, whom the Hopis address as the “Great Spirit,” was ruler of the Third World but then fell from grace because of his pride. He subsequently lost his position as planetary ruler but was then reinstated to that exalted office at the beginning of the Fourth World." In one source states: "Skeleton Man is Lord of the Dead in Hopi mythology, but is often depicted as a benign and even humorous figure. In the Hopi creation epic Skeleton Man is a culture hero who taught the Hopis the arts of agriculture as well as warning them about the dangers of the world. In other legends, he plays the role of a very earthy trickster who chases women and makes bumbling mistakes. These funny and scandalous stories make Skeleton Man into a more endearing, accessible figure. Although his aspects can be terrifying, Skeleton Man is generally considered a great friend of humanity who can be trusted to take care of Hopi people in the afterlife."

In the book "Pueblo Gods and Myths" by Hamilton A. Tyler states Masau'u to be a fire diety who would give fire to mankind. He is considered a feared deity who destroys everything he touches (Like Rudra the God of destruction and the Navajo Black God of fire from "Shiva in the Bible"), and is a Psychopomp, which deals with the dead and a fertility deity. He is compared to Hermes as they are both trickster deities and fire deities. Here he is referred to as the "Great Spirit" the God who lives in the third world. He always would carry a blazing torch (similar to Prometheus, AGNI and Mars, as they all carry the torch connecting to Genesis 15:17 "....behold a smoking furnace, and a burning "lamp/torch"..)

In the website called "Ancientpages.com" based on Masau'u states this: "The Hopi Indians’ encounter with Maasaw was very emotional and frightening. His physical appearance was so horrifying that many of the Hopi Indians ran. Some of the Hopi had the courage to stay because they had been looking for him for such a long time. They wanted to listen to Maasaw and receive spiritual wisdom. The remarkable encounter with Maasaw is one of the reasons why the Hopi are today considered keepers of sacred knowledge."

"The Hopi Indians have a very rich mythological tradition stretching back over centuries and they have stories about their ancestral journeys through three worlds to the Fourth World, where the people live today. According to Hopi legends, Maasaw (Masaw ,Massau, Masauwu) was a spirit that could not die and he was therefore appointed to be Guardian of the Underworld. He is described as a Skeleton Man and Lord of the Dead in Hopi mythology. Hopi mythology tells about the existence of worlds before our own. All previous worlds were destroyed because people became disobedient and lived contrary to Tawa’s plan. Tawa is the Sun spirit and creator in Hopi mythology. There are different versions of how the previous worlds were destroyed and who managed to survive. Some legends tell that the Third World was destroyed along with all evil people, but other stories reveal good inhabitants were simply led away from the chaos which had been created by their actions." (Here Tawa would be like Surya as the Creator)

"Maasaw looked like a skeleton man, a stick person and he was a fearsome sight. When the Hopi Indians accepted Maasaw’s frightening physical appearance, his attitude began to change and he gave them wonderful knowledge. Maasaw explained to them how they should live and allowed their people to flourish."

Then it gets very interesting in the website "The Hopi/Extraterrestrial Connection: As Above, So Below", as Sean Casteel details some stories from the Hopi on Masau'u: “The flying shields are interesting,” he said, “because the term for them is ‘paatuwvota.’ The prefix for this word is ‘paa,’ which means ‘water’ or ‘wonder.’ Some think that this describes the concentric circles in water, the way they expand in water. This is the way flying shields looked in the air when they were flying.” Along with Sotuknang, the benevolent Kachinas, the spirit messengers, also pilot the flying shields-type craft." In India they would be called "Vimanas" as flying ships by the ancients....(See "The Encounters")

"There is yet another Hopis god with extraterrestrial overtones, named Masau’u. “Masau’u was there at the beginning of the Fourth World . He’s the god of the Earth and the underworld and fire. This god led the people around and determined where they should build their villages. The people were basically migrating across the desert and building stone pueblos. They would live in these pueblos for maybe a century or less, and then they would abandon things and move on to another place. And the god Masau’u was with them all along in their journey. That’s where I believe this pattern of Orion on the desert of Arizona was fixed, by their migrations and the instructions of the Hopi god about where to build these villages."

“But Masau’u is a strange looking creature,” David continued. “He has a bulbous head and very large round eyes and a large round mouth. And he’s kind of bald. It’s said that his skin resembles the texture of a summer squash, kind of bumpy like that. His feet are very long and his body is always described as being gray. In fact, the word ‘amaus,’ the root word of Masau’u, literally means in the Hopi language gray. There are connections with the underworld and death and this kind of subterranean world that Masau’u is supposed to inhabit. “Artists have made drawings based upon the descriptions that the Hopi elders have made of this particular god and it really looks like an extraterrestrial gray. Our contemporary idea of what a gray looks like matches this ancient Hopi god perfectly. So, like I say, this god has a lot to do with how the Hopis lived and where they settled. Perhaps another extraterrestrial creature or maybe an inter-dimensional creature was assisting the Hopi in their life, in their existence in this Fourth World .” (Here details how Masau'u would look more like the Greys...See "Galactic Warfare 9")

Speaking of Extraterrestrials, there is a 2008 video segment by Sadhguru on describing Shiva as an "alien being". Here Sadhguru starts to describe some strange things about Shiva, like him having different forms, (as he can appear beautiful, and even have a form that is either ugly or strange looking), to "disappearing" out of nowhere and appearing with strange beings looking like demons and goblins. Even Kailash (being the mountain of shiva's abode) would be a place where he "disappears", thus bringing an aura of mystery to this mountain. Strangely enough, "Ancient Aliens" actually did a segment on Mount Kailash, and how this mountain is said look like a Pyramid, and when climbing, can accelerate your age faster than normal (There are many verses in the Bible detailing God dwelling on his holy mountain. It even shows that the lands of Israel would be surrounded by mountains, in which is very interesting......). Nowadays, these beings would be called "Extraterrestrials" or "Aliens", but within the Biblical stand point, they are called "Angels and Demons" or even "Gods".

 

Now, there are some notable things that are shared between the Monkey King Sun Wukong and Agni as they both tend to have red hair, both are equated as messengers of the gods (for Sun Wukong would go to heaven, earth and the underworld). They would wear the tiger or leopard skin around their bodies, both are considered fiery natured, and tend to look like beggars. Even Sun Wukong would have the crescent moon on his head just like Shiva. There is also the Devils Book called "Codex Gigas" which also shows the demon wearing the same attire as Shiva. There is Katen, Garuda, Fudo Myoo, and Sun Wukong and Rudra, all leading back to the God of fire in the Bible. (In the movie "The Monkey King 2" details Sun Wukong fighting a tiger after he was released in the beginning of the movie. But after defeating the tiger he skins the tiger and wears it over his body. The same story applies to Shiva who was attacked by a either a leopard or a tiger sent by the gods, who then slays it, and takes its skin to wear it on his body) 

Now there is the Turkic myth based on Ulgen the sky god banishing Erlik khan into the underworld for killing a messenger. Here Erlik Khan was described as having a pig’s face, a built body, and would always demand sacrifices. There are some pictures with Erlik Khan with “three eyes” and red flaming hair, and is said to have serpents, dogs and rides upon a bull. But judging from the descriptions of Erlik Khan and Yama having a pig’s face reminds me of the popular Zelda games of the villain Ganondorf. (Here you can see the "red hair" and the bull symbolism to this deity) Interesting enough, the race of Ganondorf is called "Gerudo", which sounds like the feiry bird "Garuda", linking to the bird symbolism of the God of fire. And to them being a "bird like" race with "red hair", would this be a coincidence?

Then there is the villain name Bowser from "Mario Bros", is shown with red hair. Even Aries has flaming red hair in the popular "God of war" video game. Is it a coincidence that AGNI sitting upon a ram and having the dog symbolism, could connect to Ares/Mars as the God of war? In Exodus 15:3 states “The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.” Now where do you think these game developers are getting their ideas?  

"Here you may know the famous street fighter character called "Akuma", in which means "devil" or "demon". He is shown with "red hair" and tends to have a furious nature as he fights. But let's look at the Japanese Folklore based on this name Akuma and see the connections to the God of fire. Here in the Wiki states: "The akuma (悪魔) is a malevolent fire spirit in Japanese folklore. It is also described as a category of undefined beings who brought afflictions on humans. Alternative names for the akuma is ma (ま). It is often translated to devil in English, or demon. Akuma is the name assigned to Satan in Japanese Christianity, and the Mara in Japanese Buddhism."

"Akuma first appeared in Buddhist texts although it became more popular during the Heian period from 794 to 1186 AD. Later, mainstream usage associated the name with the Christian Satan. It is said that, due to the lack of monotheism, there was no opponent of God so akuma became the equivalent of Satan. An akuma is typically depicted as an entity with a fiery head and eyes, and carrying a sword. The akuma is typically said to be able to fly, and to be a harbinger of ominous and terrible fortune and can bring misfortune to those who happen to see it."

Isn't this interesting as the description states this being as a "fire spirit", having "fiery hair", and carries a sword? This shows clearly who the God of fire is and how He has red flaming hair as the different mythos states, and how they make merchandises based on these stories. Here some verses that describes the God of fire having a sword.

Isaiah Chapter 66:16 "For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many."

Deuteronomy Chapter 32:41,42 "If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy."

There is a two-part series called "A Child-hood's end" (based from a book by Author C. Clark) This series depicts a benevolent race coming from skies to aid Humanity and to cure their economic problems. But when the people anticipate their arrival, they are shocked to find them in the form of a "Red Dragon" or Red Devil forms. Their mission was to take the animals and the younger generations of the Human race before they destroy the earth. This pays homage to the God of fire in 2nd Peter chapter 3:10-13 "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."

This is exactly like the movie "Knowing" with Nicolas Cage, when the aliens come to take the children and the animals to bring to a "new Heaven and new Earth". They show the "Wheels within the wheels" as described by Ezekiel to be spaceships. Then when you look at the movie and comic called "Superman", the symbol of the "S" would not be a letter, but a symbol. Other sources state it to mean hope. However, I also find that this symbol can represent the red serpent, thus representing the Red Dragon. And as the one who is deemed the devil by the gods is really the saviour, sort of speak...

(Zod's symbol is in the shape of a "sickle", as the movie by Zack Snyder called "Man of Steel", has a lot of interesting esoteric meanings based on the war between one race and another. See "Military symbols")

(If you ever played the Video game "Devil May Cry", there would be two demons called "Agni and Rudra", and begin to fight against the Protaganist Dante)

Strangely, Akira Toriyama's "Dragon Ball Z", also plays a similar role as the baby Kakarot, who is known as "Son Goku" (Sun Wukong) escapes from a destroyed planet and lands into earth. And instead of destroying the planet, he becomes the saviour who fights against the dark alien forces. He came from a primitive war-like race that loves war and destruction, in which pays homage to the Jinn Iblis (as the term Jinn is really "Ginger", as it's refered to the red headed people). As His race was being destructive and eating man-kind, so He and the angels go and fight against the Jinn race. (See "The Asuras" and "Legend of the Bird")

This is what the story of "Red Horn" (who is Rudra the God of fire) is all about, as the red headed giants were eating mankind, and the Earth-maker had to sent Red Horn and other warriors to fight against them. Even the video game "Asura's wrath" can detail the same story as Red Horn fighting the evil spirits that plaqued mankind. Asura and the 7 gods would go and fight the monsters, but afterwards shows that Asura (who is wrathful for obvious reasons...) is then betrayed by the gods and thrown into hell. He then goes out to get revenge against the gods and his enemies, and even battles the Buddha, who turns out to be the main antagonist in the story. Whoever wrote this story definitely knows the story of the God of fire.

In "The Secret Doctrine" by Madame Blavatsky on the chapter "The Origin of the Satanic myth" states this [[Vol. 2, Page]] 394: "Before the creation of Adam, two races lived and succeeded each other on Earth; the Devs who reigned 7,000 years, and the Peris (the Izeds) who reigned but 2,000, during the existence of the former. The Devs were giants, strong and wicked; the Peris were smaller in stature, but wiser and kinder....Gyan (or rather Gnan, true or occult Wisdom and knowledge), also called Gian-ben-Gian (or Wisdom, son of Wisdom), was the king of the Peris. He had a shield as famous as that of Achilles, only instead of serving against an enemy in war, it served as a protection against black magic, the sorcery of the Devs. Gian-ben-Gian had reigned 2,000 years when Iblis, the devil, was permitted by God to defeat the Devs and scatter them to the other end of the world. Even the magic shield, which, produced on the principles of astrology, destroyed charms, enchantments, and bad spells, could not prevail against Iblis, who was an agent of Fate (or Karma)".

It is apparent as the Video game "Asura's Wrath" reveals the story of Iblis fighting against the demons, but then after the war gets betrayed by Dyeus (Zeus) and the gods after shifting a murder on Asura. It is similar to the story of Iblis, who was propagandized as the one who caused the fall, when (As you read Genesis on the Serpent in the Garden of Eden) he was the one that helped mankind to be elevated as the gods.

Then there is Prometheus who had fought with the gods against the Titans, and thus became demonized for giving the fire to mankind (See the pattern here). The same wrathful nature that Asura displays is basically the story of the God of fire in the Bible. (I will reveal later on in the Rig Vedas, of AGNI being the Asura who battles the demons) 

Here is an artist's rendering of Acala (Fudo-Myoo) with "red hair".

Another great example from this would be from a show called "Lucifer", which is about the angel taking a vacation from Hell and living on the surface world. He later teams up with a cop to take down foes and supernatural entities. But in the second season, there is an episode deemed "The Burning Bush", in which Lucifer hints at the Forensic Analyst, that it was He Himself that met Moses behind the Burning bush. 

Then in the movie "Transformers 5: The Last Knight", shows the Magician Merlin meeting a red autobot, who then gives him a staff that could summon a dragon. This symbolically pays homage to the God of fire telling Moses to throw down the staff and it will change into a serpent. (I will reveal this later in this chapter...)

Here are verses in the Bible detailing the God of fire literally riding upon a cloud. This is similar to Sun Wukong (and Goku) who would ride upon a cloud in the Heavens.

Psalm 68:33 "To Him who rides upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times; Behold, He speaks forth with His voice, a mighty voice."

Deuteronomy 33:26 “There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to your help, And through the skies in His majesty."

2 Samuel 22:11 “And He rode on a cherub and flew; And He appeared on the wings of the wind."

Psalm 18:10 "He rode upon a cherub and flew; And He sped upon the wings of the wind."

Psalm 68:4 "Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts, Whose name is the Lord, and exalt before Him."

Isaiah 19:1 "The oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud and is about to come to Egypt; The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence, And the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them."

The God of fire can be known as Rudra, Mahakala, Fudo Myoo, and due to fire, the bull, the bird and sometimes dogs. Now the attribute of the bull is subtly told in the bible, for example in Exodus 32:8 states “…. they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped, and have sacrificed thereunto it, and said These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up unto the land of Egypt”. In the Rig Vedas 3.15.4 states “Shine forth, a Bull invincible, O Agni, winning by conquest all the forts and treasures, thou Jātavedas who art skilled in guiding, the chief high saving sacrifice's Leader” 5. “Swell, O thou Bull and give those powers an impulse, even Earth and Heaven who yield their milk in plenty, Shining, O God, with Gods in clear effulgence. Let not a mortal's evil will obstruct us."

Now, when it states that a "calf" comes out of the furnace, it would be hard to believe that they started to worship it, even at the presence of the God of fire. But the definition of the calf can be shown as a baby whale and even a baby elephant, which seems to correspond to the Hindu Ganesha the god of wisdom. Wisdom is an attribute to this deity as Elephants tend to have great memory, and Ganesha is the remover of obstacles. But what if the calf is not a particular animal but an object? Well, when you look up "Phallic worship" in Wiki, it states here: "The term is a loanword from Latin phallus, itself borrowed from Greek, which is ultimately a derivation from the Proto-Indo-European root "to inflate, swell". Compare with Old Norse (and modern Icelandic) boli "bull", Old English bulluc "bullock", Greek "whale". So, the phallus can be referenced to the Bull or the whale. (Whales would seem phallic in shape as well the "Sperm whale", and the Bull would be a symbol of virility) But what if it was a phallus that came forth, even if it was written down as "calf", because to have a "calf" all of a sudden come out of the furnace in the shape of a calf, and without any fashioning in a certain amount of time would seem absurd.

Here is another reference to dogs in Judges chapter 6 about the story of Gideon and the 300 fighting against the Midianites with their countless camels and other nations. (which is similar to Leonidas and the 300 fighting Greeks against the Persians) In verse 4 and 5 states of God telling Gideon of how many people should go to war against the Midianites. At first Gideon needed to test God on the fleece to be dried out in the wet cold as a sign to go against the Midianites; so, then the God of fire did so as confirmation. But still, there were too many people to fight ranging from 22,000 to 10,000 so, to cut down the number of men to go to war, the God of fire said for those to go down and drink the water and who ever drinks bowing down with their knees shall go home, but the ones that drink the water as a “dog” shall come to war against them. Even Jezebel was eaten by dogs during her in death scene. Rudra is said to be like a bull and (as one book states) have dogs as his symbol, and thus can connect Him to the Mars/Ares to Agni. So, dogs could discreetly be shown as a symbol to this god as well.

Here are excerpts based on AGNI being described as a bull and fighting the demons.

"HYMN VI. Agni1: PRAISE of the Asura, high imperial Ruler, the Manly One in whom the folk shall triumph- I laud his deeds who is as strong as Indra, and lauding celebrate the Fort-destroyer. (Revealing that AGNI is of the Asuras)

"HYMN VIII. Agni: 6 Be this my song, that winneth countless treasure, engendered with redoubled force for Agni, That, splendid, chasing sickness, slaying demons, it may delight our friend and bless the singers."

"HYMN XV. Agni: 10 Bright, Purifier, meet for praise, Immortal with refulgent glow, Agni drives Rākṣasas away." (This is when Agni destroys the man-eating giants that was recking havoc on mankind, similar to Iblis of the Jinn fighting the Jinn race, and Red Horn fighting the red headed giants)

"HYMN XVI. Agni: 3 The flame of him the Bountiful, the Much-invoked, hath mounted up, And his red-coloured smoke-clouds reach and touch the sky: the men are kindling Agni well." (as it states in Exodus and Levitcus, "It is a sweet savour to the Lord")

"HYMN XXXVI. Agni: 20 The flames of Agni full of splendour and of might are fearful, not to be approached. Consume for ever all demons and sorcerers, consume thou each devouring fiend."

"HYMN XXXVI. Agni: 9 Seat thee, for thou art mighty; shine, best entertainer of the Gods. Worthy of sacred food, praised Agni! loose the smoke, ruddy and beautiful to see."

"HYMN XXXI. Agni: 5 Thou, Agni, art a Bull who makes our store increase, to be invoked by him who lifts the ladle up. Well knowing the oblation with the hallowing word, uniting all who live, thou lightenest first our folk."

"HYMN XV. Agni. 1. RESPLENDENT with thy wide-extending lustre, dispel the terrors of the fiends who hate us May lofty Agni be my guide and shelter, the easily-invoked, the good Protector. 2 Be thou To us, while now the morn is breaking, be thou a guardian when the Sun hath mounted.. Accept, as men accept a true-born infant, my laud, O Agni nobly born in body. 3 Bull, who beholdest men, through many mornings, among the dark ones shine forth red, O Agni. Lead us, good Lord, and bear us over trouble: Help us who long, Most Youthful God, to riches. 4 Shine forth, a Bull invincible, O Agni, winning by conquest all the forts and treasures, Thou Jātavedas who art skilled in guiding, the chief high saving sacrifice's Leader. 5 Lighting Gods hither, Agni, wisest Singer, bring thou to us many and flawless shelters. Bring vigour, like a car that gathers booty: bring us, O Agni, beauteous Earth and Heaven. 6 Swell, O thou Bull and give those powers an impulse, e’en Earth and Heaven who yield their milk in plenty, Shining, O God, with Gods in clear effulgence. Let not a mortal's evil will obstruct us. 7 Agni, as holy food to thine invoker, give wealth in cattle, lasting, rich in marvels. To us be born a son and spreading offspring. Agni, be this thy gracious will to us-ward."

"HYMN XVII. Agni. 1. DULY enkindled after ancient customs, bringing all treasures, he is balmed with unguents,— Flame-haired, oil-clad, the purifying Agni, skilled in fair rites, to bring the Gods for worship." (This details Agni having "flaming hair")

"HYMN XXVII. Agni:14 Agni is kindled as a bull, like a horsebearer of the Gods: Men with oblations worship him. 15 Thee will we kindle as a bull, we who are Bulls ourselves, O Bull. Thee, Agni, shining mightily."

"HYMN III. Agni: 10 Agni the Bull, the manly, hath been sprinkled with oil upon his back, by Law eternal."

"HYMN IV. Agni: 4 Rise up, O Agni, spread thee out before us: burn down our foes, thou who hast sharpened arrows. Him, blazing Agni! who hath worked us mischief, consume thou utterly like dried-up stubble. 5 Rise, Agni, drive off those who fight against us: make manifest thine own celestial vigour. Slacken the strong bows of the demon-driven: destroy our foemen whether kin or stranger."

"HYMN VIII. Agni: 1. YOUR envoy who possesses all, Immortal, bearer of your gifts, Best worshipper, I woo with song. 2 He, Mighty, knows the gift of wealth, he knows the deep recess of heaven: He shall bring hitherward the Gods. 3 He knows, a God himself, to guide Gods to the righteous in his home: He gives e’en treasures that we love. 4 He is the Herald: well-informed, he doth his errand to and fro, Knowing the deep recess of heaven. 5 May we be they who gratify Agni with sacrificial gifts, Who cherish and enkindle him. 6 Illustrious for wealth are they, and hero deeds, victorious, Who have served Agni reverently. 7 So unto us, day after day, may riches craved by many come, And power and might spring up for us. 8 That holy Singer in his strength shoots forth his arrows swifter than The swift shafts of the tribes of men."

"HYMN XLIX. Agni: 14 Not to be stayed, O Bull, O Agni, are thy teeth when thou art spreading far and wide. Make our oblations duly offered up, O Priest, and give us store of precious things." 

"HYMN VIII. Agni: 1. AGNI advances with his lofty banner: the Bull is bellowing to the earth and heavens. He hath attained the sky's supremest limits. the Steer hath waxen in the lap of waters. 2 The Bull, the youngling with the hump, hath frolicked, the strong and never-ceasing Calf hath bellowed. Bringing our offerings to the God's assembly, he moves as Chief in his own dwelling-places."

"HYMN XXI. Agni: 8 Wide and aloft thou spreadest thee, O Agni, with thy brilliant flame. A Bull art thou when bellowing,—at your glad carouse-thou dost impregn the Sisters. Thou art waxing great."

"HYMN XCI. Agni: 14 He in whom horses, bulls, oxen, and barren cows, and rams, when duly set apart, are offered up,— To Agni, Soma-sprinkled, drinker of sweet juice, Disposer, with my heart I bring a fair hymn forth. 15 Into thy mouth is poured the offering, Agni, as Soma into cup, oil into ladle. Vouchsafe us wealth. strength-winning, blest with heroes, wealth lofty, praised by men, and full of splendour." (Details the food and drink offerings given to the God of fire)

"HYMN CXXII. Agni: 4 The seven who bring oblations worship thee, the Strong, the first, the Great Chief Priest, Ensign of sacrifice, The oil-anointed Bull, Agni who hears, who sends as God full hero strength to him who freely gives."

"HYMN CXVIII. Agni: 1. AGNI, refulgent among men thou slayest the devouring fiend, Bright Ruler in thine own abode. 7 O Agni, burn the Rākṣasas with thine unconquerable flame Shine guardian of Eternal Law. (Thus, another reference to Red Horn fighting against the man-eating giants, as a tie-in to "The Book of Enoch") 

"HYMN IX. Agni: 4 Yea, very hard art thou to grasp, like offspring of the wriggling snakes, When thou consumest many woods like an ox, Agni, in the mead. 5 Whose flames, when thou art sending forth the smoke, completely reach the mark, When Tṛta in the height of heaven, like as a smelter fanneth thee, even as a smelter sharpeneth thee."

"HYMN LVIII. Agni: 1 NE’ER waxeth faint the Immortal, Son of Strength, since he, the Herald, hath become Vivasvān's messenger. On paths most excellent he measured out mid-air: he with oblation calls to service of the Gods. 2 Never decaying, seizing his appropriate food, rapidly, eagerly through the dry wood he spreads. His back, as he is sprinkled, glistens like a horse: loud hath he roared and shouted like the heights of heaven? 3 Set high in place o’er all that Vasus, Rudras do, immortal, Lord of riches, seated as High Priest; Hastening like a car to men, to those who live, the God without delay gives boons to be desired. 4 Urged by the wind be spreads through dry wood as he lists, armed with his tongues for sickles, with a mighty roar. Black is thy path, Agni, changeless, with glittering waves! when like a bull thou rushest eager to the trees. 5 With teeth of flame, wind-driven, through the wood he speeds, triumphant like a bull among the herd of cows, With bright strength roaming to the everlasting air: things fixed, things moving quake before him as he flies." (Vivasvan is the Sun God Surya. And again, more references towards the Bull)

"HYMN LXX. Agni: 6 Like a brave archer, like one skilled and bold, a fierce avenger, so he shines in fight."

"HYMN LXXVII. Agni: 3 For he is mental power, a man, and perfect; he is the bringer, friend-like, of the wondrous. The pious Āryan tribes at sacrifices address them first to him who doeth marvels. 4 May Agni, foe-destroyer, manliest Hero, accept with love our hymns and our devotion. So may the liberal lords whose strength is strongest, urged by their riches, stir our thoughts with vigour."

"HYMN CXL. Agni: 5 Dispelling on their way the horror of black gloom, making a glorious show these flames of his fly forth, When o’er the spacious tract he spreads himself abroad, and rushes panting on with thunder and with roar. 6 Amid brown plants he stoops as if adorning them, and rushes bellowing like a bull upon his wives. Proving his might, he decks the glory of his form, and shakes his horns like one terrific, hard to stay." 

"HYMN XII. Agni: 1 To Agni, lofty Asura, meet for worship, Steer of eternal Law, my prayer I offer; I bring my song directed to the Mighty like pure oil for his mouth at sacrifices. 2 Mark the Law, thou who knowest, yea, observe it: send forth the full streams of eternal Order. I use no sorcery with might or falsehood the sacred Law of the Red Steer I follow. 3 How hast thou, follower of the Law eternal, become the knower of a new song, Agni? The God, the Guardian of the seasons, knows me: the Lord of him who won this wealth I know not. 4 Who, Agni, in alliance with thy foeman, what splendid helpers won for them their riches? Agni, who guard the dwelling-place of falsehood? Who are protectors of the speech of liars? 5 Agni, those friends of thine have turned them from thee: gracious of old, they have become ungracious. They have deceived themselves by their own speeches, uttering wicked words against the righteous. 6 He who pays sacrifice to thee with homage, O Agni, keeps the Red Steer's Law eternal; Wide is his dwelling. May the noble offspring of Nahuṣa who wandered forth come hither." (Again, another reference to Agni being an Asura and being compared as a bull)

"HYMN XIV. Agni: 1. ENKINDLING the Immortal, wake Agni with song of praise: may he bear our oblations to the Gods. 2 At high solemnities mortal men glorify him the Immortal, best At sacrifice among mankind. 3 That he may bear their gifts to heaven, all glorify him Agni, God, With ladle that distilleth oil. 4 Agni shone bright when born, with light killing the Dasyus and the dark: He found the Kine, the Floods, the Sun. 5 Serve Agni, God adorable, the Sage whose back is balmed with oil: Let him approach, and hear my call. 6 They have exalted Agni, God of all mankind, with oil and hymns Of praise, devout and eloquent."

"HYMN VI. Agni. 1. AGNI, accept this flaming brand, this waiting with my prayer on thee: Hear graciously these songs of praise. 2 With this hymn let us honour thee, seeker of horses, Son of Strength, With this fair hymn, thou nobly born. 3 As such, lover of song, with songs, wealth-lover, giver of our wealth! With reverence let us worship thee. 4 Be thou for us a liberal Prince, giver and Lord of precious things. Drive those who hate us far away. 5 Such as thou art, give rain from heaven, give strength which no man may resist: Give food exceeding plentiful. 6 To him who lauds thee, craving help, most youthful envoy! through our song, Most holy Herald! come thou nigh. 7 Between both races, Agni, Sage, well skilled thou passest to and fro, As envoy friendly to mankind. 8 Befriend us thou as knowing all. Sage, duly worship thou the Gods, And seat thee on this sacred grass." (Agni would also ride the red steeds as a vehicle as well, so if you look below, it shows the God of fire on a horse trampling upon demons)

Now, do you see how His ears have faces on them? That is because He is the same deity that fought the demons called "Red Horn", meaning "He who wears (man) faces on his ears". And this is from the American Indian Tribal story based on this same God. The Red Horn story in Wiki states here: "The adventures of Red Horn are set out in a set of stories known as the "Red Horn Cycle". The Red Horn Cycle depicts his adventures with Turtle, the thunderbird Storms-as-He-Walks and others who contest a race of giants, the Wąge-rucge or "Man-Eaters", who have been killing human beings whom Red Horn has pledged to help. In the episode associated with this name, Red Horn turns himself into an arrow to win a race. After winning the race Red Horn creates heads on his earlobes and makes his hair into a "long red braid" called a-he, "horn", in Hocąk. Thus he becomes known as "Red-horn" (he-šucka) and as "He who Wears (Human) Faces on His Ears". The God of fire would be called "Red Horn", because He has a single red braided hair on head, revealing Him to be Rudra of the Rig Vedas. There is an excerpt detailing a contest between Red Horn and the giants. And it states: "The best giant player was a woman with long red hair just like Red Horn's. The little heads on Red Horn's ears caused her to laugh so much that it interfered with her game and the giants lost, but Red Horn married the girl with the red hair."

So, the God of fire is shown with the same description as the very same deity among the Hindus, Japanese and Tibetans. (Now, there are different names made seperate in the Buddhist aspect, like Daiitoku Myoo, Yasha Myooo, Fudo myoo etc.) However, their aspects are broken down from the original deity Rudra and AGNI in the Rig vedas. Seeing the very wrathful nature and the consuming fire aspect clearly shows this to be the same deity who took the Israelites out of Egypt. The one who has the deer symbolism is the post vedic Shiva, but isn't the god called "Rudra" as He is shown to be like a "bull" and thus would connect to the god Agni. I will reveal who this other deity is, and how this is the one who defeated the God of fire Rudra, in the coming chapters) Here is a said image of Yama (Agni) sitting upon a bull, who in Japanese is called Daiitoku-Myoo.

Agni would be connected to the post Vedic god Yama, who sits on a bull, as the Rig Vedas states, be described as "bull-like". So, like I stated that there would be different versions of Agnis. Then the same goes for the difference between the gods Rudra (who has the bull, Bird, and is shown with fangs) and the fake Shiva (who is really Vishnu. See "The Black God"). Sometimes Agni would be shown with either two heads, three heads, to having fangs, carrying weapons and a torch, showing thus connecting Him to Fudo Myoo and Rudra. And because of His war-like aspect, this can also connect to Exodus 15:3 as it states "The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is His name". Would this be similar to the God Mars and Ares? As he would also be the "God of war" and also would ride upon a ram. Since there were different versions of Agni's throughout time, there is one version of Agni that shows him sitting upon a ram with two or three heads. In Sir Godfrey Higgins' book "The Anacalypsis" states it represent the ram of Agni (Chapter 10 page 260 states that this symbol is really towards the God AGNI and not Vishnu, who is notably symbolized with a ram and a bull. But this will connect to the "Passover" in "The real Aryans 1")

So, with all of these connections, you can see how this God will connect to the Red Dragon (as the fiery bird) that fought against Michael the archangel. And this is without a doubt the God of fire that brought the Israelites out of Egypt as He promised to Abram in Genesis 15. Speaking of Genesis 15, when Abram made the animal sacrifice and then states a "horror of darkness" fell upon him. The God of fire speaks to him saying that his children will be under the bondage of the Egyptians for 400 years until they are taken out with so much wealth. I find how this strangely complies with the worship of the Egyptian God Set, as he was supposed to represent foreigners and evil. This details the people called the"Hyksos" which supposedly means foreign ruler, and was said to be worshipers of Set. In fact, in this Wiki states this: "When, c. 1522 BCE, Ahmose I overthrew the Hyksos and expelled them, Egyptians' attitudes towards Asiatic foreigners became xenophobic, and royal propaganda discredited the period of Hyksos rule. The Set cult at Avaris flourished, nevertheless, and the Egyptian garrison of Ahmose stationed there became part of the priesthood of Set. The founder of the Nineteenth Dynasty, Ramesses I came from a military family from Avaris with strong ties to the priesthood of Set. Several of the Ramesside kings were named after the god, most notably Seti I (literally, "man of Set") and Setnakht (literally, "Set is strong"). In addition, one of the garrisons of Ramesses II held Set as its patron deity, and Ramesses II erected the so-called "Four Hundred Years' Stele" at Pi-Ramesses, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Set cult in the Nile delta."

So, would it be a coincidence that the term "400" years of worshiping Set, be the same as the God of fire stating to Abram on how the Israelites will be under the Egyptians for 400 years? Set would obviously the God of fire through his fiery presence, as a storm deity, for His fiery and chaotic nature, his envy (as He is a Jealous God) and would demand sacrifices, all leading back to Agni, the very God in the Bible. He is Kojin, Fudo-Myoo, Rudra, Sun Wukong, Garuda, Set, Loki, Iblis, to what the Christians call Lucifer, Satan, or the devil. However, this so-called devil, is shown to be the very God who gave the commandments to the Children of Israel, in which symbolically represents the fire (as enlightenment), to live in harmony with each other. And this supposed "devil" would be the one who hates witchcraft, sorcery, familiars, divinations and eschews evil etc.

Let's see some excerpts from the book "Isis Unveiled" by Madam Blavatsky [[Vol. 2, Page]] 487 THE GREAT RED DRAGON. "According to Josephus, the Hyk-sos were the ancestors of the Israelites.* This is doubtless substantially true. The Hebrew Scriptures, which tell a somewhat different story, were written at a later period, and underwent several revisions, before they were promulgated with any degree of publicity. Typhon became odious in Egypt, and shepherds "an abomination. In the course of the twentieth dynasty he was suddenly treated as an evil demon, insomuch that his effigies and name are obliterated on all the monuments and inscriptions that could be reached."

"....Seth was god of the Hyk-sos, Enoch, or Inachus, of the Argives; and Abraham, Isaac, and Judah have been compared with Brahma, Ikshwaka, and Yadu of the Hindu pantheon. Typhon tumbled down from godhead to devilship, both in his own character as brother of Osiris, and as the Seth, or Satan of Asia...." 

[[Vol. 2, Page]] 524 ISIS UNVEILED. "On the other hand, the characteristics of the Mosaic Jehovah exhibit more of the moral disposition of Siva than of a benevolent, "long-suffering" God. Besides, to be identified with Siva is no small compliment, for the latter is God of wisdom. Wilkinson depicts him as the most intellectual of the Hindu gods. He is three-eyed, and, like Jehovah, terrible in his resistless revenge and wrath. And, although the Destroyer, yet he is the re-creator of all things in perfect wisdom." (Now, in this book they tried to compare Set to Bacchus/Sabiuz, who was the god Osiris that was cut up but was resurrected. On this I highly disagree as I will detail in the "Black God" chapter, of who Bacchus really is and how he is worshiped. Now, when I would read some of these things, I would always have to discern any information that I come upon. There is a lot of misconception based on the Cube, Saturn equating with Set, but that will detailed later) 

So, now that we know who the God of fire is, and how he is the Red Dragon that fought Michael the Archangel. Let's connect the God of fire to the Angel of fire that met Moses in Exodus 3:2 "And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed."

Hebrews 12:29 " For our God is a Consuming fire"

Now in the Rig Vedas, there is the God called Rudra. Rudra is said to be a storm and fire god and have the label "God of gods". He is called the “ruddy one", the terrible or destructive force of nature as well has having a temper. This God is described as being an archer or the one who carries the bow and shoots arrows of brilliant shafts like lightning at his foes.

In the Rig Veda book 7 chapter 46 verse 3 states “May thy bright arrow which, shot down by thee from heaven, flieth upon the earth, pass us uninjured.” Now let’s look at Psalms 18:14 “Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings and discomfited them.” In Deuteronomy 32:24 “I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.” Deuteronomy 32:42 "I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh..." Now the original weapons that Rudra would carry is the sword, the bow with arrows, the spear or trident, the noose and His devastating eye of destruction. He is also known as the God who sends plagues and diseases as well as the God who heals, now does this sound like the God that the Christians are worshiping in these Churches? (I will reveal which God is being worshiped in the Churches in "The Black God")

Psalms 79:5 " How long, Lord? wilt thou be angry forever? Shall thy jealousy burn like fire?" He carries the flaming sword, and has the presence of fire round about Him. In the Rig Vedas, it is mentioned in book 7 chapter 46 verse 4 stating “slay us not, nor abandon us, Oh Rudra let not thy noose, when thy art angry, seize us….” R.V. book 1 chapter 114 verse 1 states “To the strong Rudra bring we these our praise to Him the Lord of heroes with the braided hair….” Verse 5 “Him with the braided hair we call with reverence down, the wild boar, the red dazzling shape….”

From Deuteronomy 4:24 "For our God is a jealous God and a Consuming fire", states how He is a fire deity. And the legendary Fiery bird is the one written down as the "Red Dragon" in the bible. There are verses in the Bible stating the God of fire described as a rock, hence "Fudo-Myo-o", is the "Immovable one". Deuteronomy 32:4 “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.”

Deuteronomy 32:15 "But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation."

Deuteronomy 32:18 “Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.”

Deuteronomy 32:30 “How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?"

Deuteronomy 32:31 “For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.”

Deuteronomy 32:37 “And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,”

Psalms 40:2 “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”

Psalms 42:9 “I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?” Psalms 62:6 “He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.”

Psalms 71:3 “Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.” Psalms 78:35 “And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.”

Psalms 92:15 “To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

Psalms 94:22 “But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.”

Psalms 95:1 “O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.”

2 Samuel 22:2 “And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;”

2 Samuel 22:47 “The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.”

2 Samuel 23:3 “The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.”

Psalms 18:31 “For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?” Psalms 18:46 “The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.”

Psalms 28:1 “(A Psalm of David.) Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.”

Psalms 31:2 “Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.”

Psalms 31:3 “For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.”

1 Samuel 2:2 “There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”

So, clearly the Rig Vedas is saying that He is a God with braided red hair and carries a noose. In the Rig Vedas would detail the God of fire Rudra leading the Rudras or Maruts (the storm gods) against His enemies. Psalms 104:3 "Who layeth the beams of His chambers: who maketh the clouds His chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind." Psalms 148:8 "Fire, hail; snow and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word."

Here are some of the excerpts from the Rig Vedas detailing the description of the God of fire:

"HYMN CXIV. Rudra. 1. To the strong Rudra bring we these our songs of praise, to him the Lord of Heroes with the braided hair, That it be well with all our cattle and our men, that in this village all be healthy and well-fed. 2 Be gracious unto us, O Rudra, bring us joy: thee, Lord of Heroes, thee with reverence will we serve. Whatever health and strength our father Manu won by sacrifice may we, under thy guidance, gain. 3 By worship of the Gods may we, O Bounteous One, O Rudra, gain thy grace, Ruler of valiant men. Come to our families, bringing them bliss: may we, whose heroes are uninjured, bring thee sacred gifts, 4 Hither we call for aid the wise, the wanderer, impetuous Rudra, perfecter of sacrifice. May he repel from us the anger of the Gods: verily we desire his favourable grace. 5 Him with the braided hair we call with reverence down, the wild-boar of the sky, the red, the dazzling shape. May he, his hand filled full of sovran medicines, grant us protection, shelter, and a home secure. 6 To him the Maruts’ Father is this hymn addressed, to strengthen Rudra's might, a song more sweet than sweet. Grant us, Immortal One, the food which mortals eat: be gracious unto me, my seed, my progeny. 7 O Rudra, harm not either great or small of us, harm not the growing boy, harm not the full-grown man. Slay not a sire among us, slay no mother here, and to our own dear bodies, Rudra, do not harm. 8 Harm us not, Rudra, in our seed and progeny, harm us not in the living, nor in cows or steeds, Slay not our heroes in the fury of thy wrath. Bringing oblations evermore we call to thee. 9 Even as a herdsman I have brought thee hymns of praise: O Father of the Maruts, give us happiness, Blessed is thy most favouring benevolence, so, verily, do we desire thy saving help. 10 Far be thy dart that killeth men or cattle: thy bliss be with us, O thou Lord of Heroes. Be gracious unto us, O God, and bless us, and then vouchsafe us doubly-strong protection. 11 We, seeking help, have spoken and adored him: may Rudra, girt by Maruts, hear our calling. This prayer of ours may Varuṇa grant, and Mitra, and Aditi and Sindhu, Earth and Heaven."

"HYMN XXXIII. Rudra: 1. FATHER of Maruts, let thy bliss approach us: exclude us not from looking on the sunlight. Gracious to our fleet courser be the Hero may we transplant us, Rudra, in our children. 2 With the most saving medicines which thou givest, Rudra, may I attain a hundred winters. Far from us banish enmity and hatred, and to all quarters maladies and trouble. 3 Chief of all born art thou in glory, Rudra, armed with the thunder, mightiest of the mighty. Transport us over trouble to well-being repel thou from us all assaults of mischief. 4 Let us not anger thee with worship, Rudra, ill praise, Strong God! or mingled invocation. Do thou with strengthening balms incite our heroes: I hear thee famed as best of all physicians. 5 May I with praise-songs win that Rudra's favour who is adored with gifts and invocations. Ne’er may the tawny God, fair-checked, and gracious, swifthearing, yield us to this evil purpose. 6 The Strong, begirt by Maruts, hath refreshed me, with most invigorating food, imploring. As he who finds a shade in fervent sunlight may I, uninjured, win the bliss of Rudra. 7 Where is that gracious hand of thine, O Rudra, the hand that giveth health and bringeth comfort, Remover of the woe that Gods have sent us? O Strong One, look thou on me with compassion. 8 To him the strong, great, tawny, fair-complexioned, I utter forth a mighty hymn of praises. We serve the brilliant God with adorations, we glorify, the splendid name of Rudra. 9 With firm limbs, multiform, the strong, the tawny adorns himself with bright gold decorations: The strength of Godhead ne’er departs from Rudra, him who is Sovran of this world, the mighty. 10 Worthy, thou carriest thy bow and arrows, worthy, thy manyhued and honoured necklace. Worthy, thou cuttest here each fiend to pieces: a mightier than thou there is not, Rudra. 11 Praise him the chariot-borne, the young, the famous, fierce, slaying like a dread beast of the forest. O Rudra, praised, be gracious to the singer. let thy hosts spare us and smite down another. 12 I bend to thee as thou approachest, Rudra, even as a boy before the sire who greets him. I praise thee Bounteous Giver, Lord of heroes: give medicines to us as thou art lauded. 13 Of your pure medicines, O potent Maruts, those that are wholesomest and health-bestowing, Those which our father Manu hath selected, I crave from. Rudra for our gain and welfare. 14 May Rudra's missile turn aside and spare us, the great wrath of the impetuous One avoid us. Turn, Bounteous God, thy strong bow from our princes, and be thou gracious to our seed and offspring. 15 O tawny Bull, thus showing forth thy nature, as neither to be wroth, O God, nor slay us. Here, Rudra, listen to our invocation. Loud may we speak, with heroes, in assembly."

"HYMN XV. Agni: 6 Worship ye Agni, Agni, with your log of wood; praise your beloved, your beloved guest with songs. Invite ye the Immortal hither with your hymns. A God among the Gods, he loveth what is choice, loveth our service, God mid Gods. 7 Agni inflamed with fuel in my song I sing, pure, Cleanser, steadlast, set in tront at sacrifice. Wise Jātavedas we implore with prayers for bliss the Priest, the holy Singer, bounteous, void of guile. 8 Men, Agni, in each age have made thee, Deathiess One, their envoy, offering-bearer, guard adorable. With reverence Gods and mortals have established thee, the ever-watchful, omnipresent Household Lord. 9 Thou, Agni, ordering the works and ways of both, as envoy of the Gods traversest both the worlds. When we lay claim to thy regard and gracious fare, be thou to us a thriceprotecting friendly guard. 10 Him fair of face, rapid, and fair to look on, him very wise may we who know not follow. Let him who knows all rules invite for worship, Agru announce our offering to the Immortals. 11 Him, Agni, thou deliverest and savest who brings him prayer to thee the Wise, O Hero, The end of sacrifice or its inception; yea, thou endowest him with power and riches."

"HYMN II. Agni: 9 E’en things imperishable, thou, O Agni, like a gazing ox, Eatest, when hosts, Eternal One! of thee the Mighty rend the woods. 10 Agni, thou enterest as Priest the home of men who sacrifice. Lord of the people, prosper them. Accept the offering, Aṅgiras!"

"HYMN X. Agni: 1. INSTALL at sacrifice, while the rite advances, your pleasant, heavenly Agni, meet for praises. With hymns-for he illumines us-install him. He, Jātavedas, makes our rites successful. 2 Hear this laud, Radiant Priest of many aspects, O Agni with the fires of man enkindled, Laud which bards send forth pure as sacred butter, strength to this man, as ’twere for self-advantage. 3 Mid mortal men that singer thrives in glory who offers gifts with hymns of praise to Agni, And the God, wondrous bright, with wondrous succours helps him to win a stable filled with cattle. 4 He, at his birth, whose path is black behind him, filled heaven and earth with far-apparent splendour: And he himself hath been. through night's thick darkness, made manifest by light, the Purifier. 5 With thy most mighty aid, confer, O Agni, wonderful wealth on us and on our princes, Who stand preeminent, surpassing others in liberal gifts, in fame, and hero virtues. 6 Agni, accept this sacrifice with gladness, which, seated here, the worshipper presenteth. Fair hymns hadst thou among the Bharadvājas, and holpest them to gain abundant vigour. 7 Scatter our foes, increase our store. May we he glad a hundred winters with brave sons."

"HYMN XLIII. Rudra: 1 WHAT shall we sing to Rudra, strong, most bounteous, excellently wise, That shall be dearest to his heart? 2 That Aditi may grant the grace of Rudra to our folk, our kine, Our cattle and our progeny; 3 That Mitra and that Varuṇa, that Rudra may remember us, Yea, all the Gods with one accord. 4 To Rudra Lord of sacrifice, of hymns and balmy medicines, We pray for joy and health and strength. 5 He shines in splendour like the Sun, refulgent as bright gold is he, The good, the best among the Gods. 6 May he grant health into our steeds, wellbeing to our rams and ewes, To men, to women, and to kine. 7 O Soma, set thou upon us the glory of a hundred men, The great renown of mighty chiefs. 8 Let not malignities, nor those who trouble Soma, hinder us. Indu, give us a share of strength. 9 Soma! head, central point, love these; Soma! know these as serving thee, Children of thee Immortal, at the highest place of holy law."

"HYMN II. Agni: 9 Agni shines far and wide with lofty splendour, and by his greatness makes all things apparent. He conquers godless and malign enchantments, and sharpens both his horns to gore the Rakṣas. 10 Loud in the heaven above be Agni's roarings with keen-edged weapons to destroy the demons. Forth burst his splendours in the Soma's rapture. The godless bands press round but cannot stay him. 11 As a skilled craftsman makes a car, a singer I, Mighty One! this hymn for thee have fashioned. If thou, O Agni, God, accept it gladly, may we obtain thereby the heavenly Waters. 12 May he, the strong-necked Steer, waxing in vigour, gather the foeman's wealth with none to check him. Thus to this Agni have the Immortals spoken. To man who spreads the grass may he grant shelter, grant shelter to the man who brings oblation."

"HYMN VI. Agni.1: I VALUE Agni that good Lord, the home to which the kine return: Whom fleet-foot coursers seek as home, and strong enduring steeds as home. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 2 ’Tis Agni whom we laud as good, to whom the milch-kine come in herds, To whom the chargers swift of foot, to whom our well-born princes come. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 3 Agni the God of all mankind, gives, verily, a steed to man. Agni gives precious gear for wealth, treasure he gives when he is pleased. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 4 God, Agni, we will kindle thee, rich in thy splendour, fading not, So that this glorious fuel may send forth by day its light for thee. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 5 To thee the splendid, Lord of flame, bright, wondrous, Prince of men, is brought. Oblation with the holy verse, O Agni, bearer of our gifts. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 6 These Agnis in the seats of the fire nourish each thing most excellent. They give delight, they spread abroad, they move themselves continually. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 7 Agni, these brilliant flames of thine wax like strong chargers mightily, Who with the treadings of their hoofs go swiftly to the stalls of kine. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 8 To us who laud thee, Agni, bring fresh food and safe and happy homes. May we who have sung hymns to thee have thee for envoy in each house. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 9 Thou, brilliant God, within thy mouth warmest both ladles of the oil. So fill us also, in our hymns, abundantly, O Lord of Strength. Bring food to those who sing thy praise. 10 Thus Agni have we duly served with sacrifices and with hymns. So may he give us what we crave, store of brave sons and fleet-foot steeds. Bring food to those who sing thy praise."

HYMN III. Agni. 1. ASSOCIATE with fires, make your God Agni envoy at sacrifice, best skilled in worship, Established firm among mankind, the Holy, flame-crowned and fed with oil, the Purifier. 2 Like a steed neighing eager for the pasture, when he hath stepped forth from the great enclosure: Then the wind following blows upon his splendour, and, straight, the path is black which thou hast travelled. 3 From thee a Bull but newly born, O Agni, the kindled everlasting flames rise upward. Aloft to heaven thy ruddy smoke ascendeth: Agni, thou speedest to the Gods as envoy. 4 Thou whose fresh lustre o’er the earth advanceth when greedily with thy jaws thy food thou eatest. Like a host hurried onward comes thy lasso: fierce, with thy tongue thou piercest, as ’twere barley. 5 The men have decked him both at eve and morning, Most Youthful Agni, as they tend a courser. They kindle him, a guest within his dwelling: bright shines the splendour of the worshipped Hero. 6 O fair of face, beautiful is thine aspect when, very near at hand, like gold thou gleamest, Like Heaven's thundering roar thy might approaches, and like the wondrous Sun thy light thou showest. 7 That we may worship, with your Hail to Agni! with sacrificial cakes and fat oblations, Guard us, O Agni, with those boundless glories as with a hundred fortresses of iron. 8 Thine are resistless songs for him who offers, and hero-giving hymns wherewith thou savest; With these, O Son of Strength, O Jātavedas, guard us, preserve these princes and the singers. 9 When forth he cometh, like an axe new-sharpened, pure in his form, resplendent in his body, Sprung, sought with eager longing, from his Parents, for the Gods’ worship, Sage and Purifier: 10 Shine this felicity on us, O Agni: may we attain to perfect understanding. All happiness be theirs who sing and praise thee. Ye Gods, preserve us evermore with blessings."

This describes the God of fire's flames rising up to the heavens......

Psalms 64:7 "But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded." Now people may say that there should be no images made of the God of Israel as He commanded, and yes I can agree with that, but as far as the description goes leading back to carrying a sword and with flames encompassing Him all around, is just obvious who He is apparently. (It's also ironic that would people state this, and yet, Jesus has so many images put up in Churches....)

Deuteronomy 4:5,16 “Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves, for ye saw no similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire; Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female.” So, despite Agni telling the Israelites to not make a image of Him but only heard His voice, they still yet made a graven image of him. In Japan, He is Kojin or the kitchen/fire god, because He oversees the fire sacrifices done by the children of Israel when they do offerings to the fire. Now there is a restaurant named after this deity of course, which is ironic because the Children of Israel would “cook” to the God of fire; meaning He eats their sacrifices and drinks wine.

Deuteronomy 32:38 “And he shall say, where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever. If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.” Seems like the God of fire eats and drinks like everybody else.

Habakkuk 3:5,11 "Before Him went the pestilence and burning coals went forth at His feet. The sun and moon stood still in therin habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear."

Now I’m going to establish the descriptions of the God of fire in the bible and give evidence of his power as mentioned. In Exodus 19 tells of when God took the Israelites out of Egypt to mount Sinai and told Moses that He will come and meet the congregation. In verse 18 “And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly”.

Exodus 20:5,6 tells of God being a “jealous God” and visiting the iniquity of those that hate Him and shewing mercy unto thousands that love Him and do His commandments. Same chapter verse 18,19 “And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings and the noise of trumpets, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses. Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die” verse 20 “…. Fear not for God is come to prove you, and that His fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.”

Exodus 24:17 “And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.”And at times Agni wanted to destroy the Children of Israel as stated here in Exodus 32:9-11 “And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people and behold it is a stiff-necked people. Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?” It seems if it wasn’t for Moses intervening, then the Israelites would have been consumed by His fire.

So, from the verses it shows that the God of fire is a jealous God and gets wrathful if the laws are not followed. Deuteronomy 4:24 “For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.” Verse 36 “Out of heaven He made thee to hear His voice, that He might instruct thee: and upon earth He shewed thee His great fire; thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.” Verse 12 “And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude, only ye heard the voice.” Verse 33 “Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and lived?”

Deuteronomy 3:15 “Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire…” Deuteronomy 9:3 “Understand therefore this day, that the Lord thy God is He which goeth before thee as a consuming fire; He shall destroy them and He shall bring them down before thy face….” Chapter 28:59 “Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sickness, and of long continuance.” Another reference to the connections of Rudra for the one who brings the plagues. Deuteronomy 32:22-24 “For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischief upon them: I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beast upon them with the poison of serpents of the dust.”

From the previous verse, does that not tell you what kind of God He is? He holds a glittering sword, drinks wine, eats the fat of the sacrifice, has arrows and slays those that hate Him. It even implies the Lord exacting vengeance against His enemies and lifts His hand to heaven and says “I live forever.” Psalms 18:8 “There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.” Psalms 21:12 “Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy string against the face of them.” Psalms 33:18 states “Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy.” Does this mean the eye of Rudra? And Rudra has arrows as it clearly shows in the bible.

Psalms 35:3 “Draw out the spear and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul I am thy salvation” Psalms 37:20 “But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume into smoke they shall consume away.” Psalms 50:3 “Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.” Psalms 59:13 “Consume them in wrath, consume them, that may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah” Psalms 64:7 “But God shall shoot them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.” Again, another reference to God having arrows.

Psalms 68:2,21 “As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melted before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But God shall wound the head of His enemies, and the hairy scalp of such as one goeth in his trespasses.” By the way, that last verse is a scalping reference. Psalms 97:3-5,9 “A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies around about. His lightnings enlightened the world; the earth saw, and trembled. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the whole earth. For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.”

Now these are just some of the examples of the various descriptive powers of Agni. In Psalms, it is mentioned that there are other gods, and in the Rig Vedas, Rudra is the God of gods. It’s like Psalms and the Rig Vedas are the same thing. Isaiah 29:6 “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder. And with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.” Chapter 30:27,30 “Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from afar, burning with His anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: His lips are full of indignation, and His tongue as a devouring fire. And the Lord shall cause His glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of His arm, with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest and hailstones.”

Isaiah 34:6 “The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in Boz’ rah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.”

Isaiah 64:1,2 “Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, as when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence.” Isaiah 66:15 “For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebukes with fire.”

“For by fire and by His sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.” Isaiah 66:16. The God of fire among His many forms in Japan and India. Then there is the case of The God of fire sending the fiery serpents against the people because they spoke and murmured against Him in the wilderness. Numbers 21:5,6 “And the people spoke against God, and against Moses, wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loathed this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people died.” So, what is considered a fiery serpent? Because the people then said to Moses “we have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee, pray unto the Lord that He take away the serpents from us….” Verse 8 states “And the lord said unto Moses, make thee a fiery serpent, and set it up upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live” Verse 9 “And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it on a pole and if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” So, he puts the brazen serpent upon a pole:

So, is the brazen fiery serpent that Moses was told to put on the pole? The sword of Fudo Myoo has a serpent as His symbol. And the symbol of the serpent that pertains to them is shown as “fiery” for fire is red like. So, a red fiery serpent on a pole? Does this not relate to the Red dragon that the Chinese use for their festivals? In Hinduism, it is said that when a devotee looks upon the "Garuda" bird after being bitten by the poison of the serpent, then they will get healed. This is similar to the fiery serpent on the pole that was set up by Moses; for the Israelites to be healed from the fiery serpents sent upon them. (Then from this shows that the "Red Dragon" is really a fiery bird prior to the change...See "Legend of the Bird")

It is said that the land of China is deemed the “Land of the Red Dragon” and the Chinese people sometimes would be called the “children of the dragon” or the descendants of the dragon. (See "Legend of the Bird" and "The Devas")

In the book of Jeremiah 8:17 states “For, behold I will send serpents, cockatrices, among, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the lord.” Isaiah 14:29 “Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out the serpents root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.” So again, serpents and even the cockatrice? The cockatrice is supposed to be an amalgamation between a serpent and a rooster as most myths indicate. (In the "Peacock angel" and "Queen of Heaven", I'll reveal where the cockatrice is based on)

There are also scriptures detailing the God of fire bringing hornets to destroy the enemies of the Israelites. Deuteronomy 7:20 "Moreover, the Lord your God will send the hornet against them, until those who are left and hide themselves from you perish." Exodus 23:28 "I will send hornets ahead of you so that they will drive out the Hivites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites before you." Joshua 24:12 "Then I sent the hornet before you and it drove out the two kings of the Amorites from before you, but not by your sword or your bow."

There are verses that state the Lord sending flies : Psalms 105:31 “He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.” Exodus 8:16-18 - "And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast."

Exodus 8:21-24 - "Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are. And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be. And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies."

Psalms 78:45 "He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them." Isaiah 7:18 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria." 

But as you see how the so called "Red Dragon" is merely the fiery bird connecting to Enoch, the one who "taken" by God. Then it becomes evident that Deuteronomy 32:39-41 states that "He is surrounded by fire, carries a sword, shoots arrows of lightning, brings plagues and beast. Then maybe it is very easy to understand who the God of fire is from Him saying “I am a jealous God and a consuming fire”, and how He states "a God" meaning that He is just one of the gods.
