The Children of Agni

Now, based from learning about the God of fire in the Bible, many people will state that being is Melek Taus, or the "Peacock Angel". However, this will be clarified later on, but first let's see what the Wiki states:

"Melek Taûs (Kurdish: مەلیک تاووس‎, romanized: Malak-Tāwūs), also spelled Malak Tāwūs and Tawûsê Melek, translated in English as Peacock Angel, is one of the central figures of the Yazidi religion. In Yazidi creation stories, God created the world and entrusted it to the care of seven Holy Beings, often referred to as the Seven Angels or heft sirr ("the Seven Mysteries"), whom the most preeminent is Tawûsê Melek, the Peacock Angel. French anthropologist Zaïm Khenchelaoui, along with other scholars, believe that Melek Taûs may correspond to the Ancient Mesopotamian deity of Tammuz."

"Like many aspects of the secretive Yazidi religion, Tawûsê Melek is subject to varied and ambiguous interpretations. The "Yazidi Book of Revelation" (Ketêbâ Jelwa), a text generally believed to have been written by non-Yazidis (along with the "Yazidi Black Book") in the early 20th century but based on Yazidi oral tradition, even though a nineteenth-century translation of the text exists, is purported to contain the words of Tawûsê Melek; it states that he allocates responsibilities, blessings and misfortunes upon humanity as he sees fit and that it is not for the race of Adam to question his choices."

"The Yazidis consider Tawûsê Melek an emanation of God and a good, benevolent angel and leader of the archangels, who was entrusted to take care of the world after he passed a test and created the cosmos from the Cosmic egg. Yazidis believe that Tawûsê Melek is not a source of evil or wickedness. They consider him to be the leader of the archangels, not a fallen nor a disgraced angel, but an emanation of God himself."

"The Yazidis believe that the founder or reformer of their religion, Sheikh Adi Ibn Musafir, was an incarnation of Tawûsê Melek. Tawûsê Melek is sometimes transliterated Tawusi Malek, Malak Taûs, Malak Tāwūs, Malak Tawwus, or Malik Taws. Melek was borrowed from the Arabic term meaning "king" or "angel", while Tawûs is uncontroversially translated as "peacock" (in art and sculpture, Tawûsê Melek is almost always depicted as a peacock)."

"However, peacocks are not native to the lands where Tawûsê Melek is worshipped. Among early Christians, the peacock represented immortality because of a folk belief that its flesh does not decay after death. Consequently, peacock imagery adorns Yazidi shrines, gateways, graves, and houses of worship."

"The Kitêba Cilwe (Book of Illumination), also known as the Book of Revelation, which claims to be the words of Tawûsê Melek himself, states that he allocates responsibilities, blessings, and misfortunes as he sees fit, and that it is not for the race of Adam to question him."

"Sheikh Adi ibn Musafir believed that the spirit of Tawûsê Melek is the same as his own; that is, that he was an avatar of the archangel. He is believed to have said: I was present when Adam was living in Paradise, and also when Nemrud threw Abraham in fire. I was present when God said to me: “You are the ruler and Lord on the Earth”.God, the compassionate, gave me seven earths and throne of the heaven."

"Yazidi accounts of the creation differ significantly from those of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), since they are derived from the Ancient Mesopotamian and Indo-Iranian traditions; therefore, Yazidi cosmogony is closer to those of Ancient Iranian religions, Yarsanism, and Zoroastrianism. Yazidi people believe that God first created Tawûsê Melek from his own illumination (Ronahî) and the other six archangels were created later. God ordered Tawûsê Melek not to bow to other beings."

"Then God created the other archangels and ordered them to bring him dust (Ax) from the Earth (Erd) and build the body of Adam. Then God gave life to Adam from his own breath and instructed all archangels to bow to Adam. The archangels obeyed, except for Tawûsê Melek. In answer to God, Tawûsê Melek replied, How can I submit to another being! I am from your illumination while Adam is made of dust. Then God praised him and made him the leader of all angels and his deputy on the Earth."

"Hence, the Yazidis believe that Tawûsê Melek is the representative of God on the face of the Earth, and comes down to the Earth on the first Wednesday of Nisan (April). Yazidis hold that God created Tawûsê Melek on this day, and celebrate it as New Year's Day. Yazidis argue that the order to bow to Adam was only a test for Tawûsê Melek, since if God commands anything then it must happen (Bibe, dibe)."

"In other words: God could have made him submit to Adam, but gave Tawûsê Melek the choice as a test. They believe that their respect and praise for Tawûsê Melek is a way to acknowledge his majestic and sublime nature. This idea is called Zanista Ciwaniyê (Knowledge of the Sublime). Sheikh Adî observed the story of Tawûsê Melek and believed in him."

"In the Yazidi myth of creation, Tawûsê Melek refused to bow before Adam, the first human, when God ordered the Seven Angels to do so. The command was actually a test, meant to determine which of these angels was most loyal to God by not prostrating themselves to someone other than their creator."

"This belief has been linked by some people to the Islamic mythological narrative on Iblis, who also refused to prostrate to Adam, despite God's express command to do so. Because of this similarity to the Islamic tradition of Iblis, Muslims and followers of other Abrahamic religions have erroneously associated and identified the Peacock Angel with their own conception of the unredeemed evil spirit Satan,: 29  a misconception which has incited centuries of violent religious persecution of the Yazidis as "devil-worshippers".

"Persecution of Yazidis has continued in their home communities within the borders of modern Iraq. Since the late 16th century, Muslims have accused Yazidis of devil-worship due to the similarity between the Islamic mythological narrative on Iblis and the account of Tawûsê Melek's refusal to bow to Adam. Whereas Muslims revile Iblis for refusing to submit to God and bow to Adam, believing that his defiance caused him to fall from God's grace, Yazidis revere Tawûsê Melek for loyalty towards God and believe that God's command to Tawûsê Melek was a test to see who is truly devoted to God alone."

"This narrative led to many misinterpretations, also made by Western scholars, who interpreted the Yazidi faith through their own cultural influences. Further accusations derived from narratives attributed to Melek Taûs, which are actually foreign to Yazidism, probably introduced by either Muslims in the 9th century or Christian missionaries in the 20th century."

"Accusations of devil-worship fueled centuries of violent religious persecution, which have led Yazidi communities to concentrate in remote mountainous regions of northwestern Iraq. The Yazidi taboo against the Arabic word Shaitan (الشیطان) and on words containing the consonants š (sh) and t/ṭ have been used to suggest a connection between Tawûsê Melek and Iblis, although no evidence exists to suggest that Yazidis worship Tawûsê Melek as the same figure."

"The "Yazidi Black Book", written by Western Orientalists, directly identifies Melek Taus with Azazil or Azrail. Yazidis, however, believe Tawûsê Melek is not a source of evil or wickedness. They consider him to be the leader of the archangels, not a fallen angel. Yazidis argue that the order to bow to Adam was only a test for Tawûsê Melek, since if God commands anything then it must happen."

"In other words, God could have made him submit to Adam, but gave Tawûsê Melek the choice as a test: God had directed him not to bow to any other being, and his refusal of the later order to bow to Adam was thus obedience to God's original command. Furthermore, Yazidis identify Melek Taûs with Jibrail (Gabriel). In one Arabic manuscript, the name "Jabrail" is used in secondary reading, instead of "Melek Taus". The title "peacock of paradise" was also applied to Gabriel among Islamic traditions."

It's interesting that the Peacock references can connect to the Archangel Gabriel, but I will also connect this to the Archangel Michael as well (I will reveal further the connections of thse one called "Azazil" to being the one to destroy the monsters in the land. See "Galactic Warfare" series).

Now, based on the excerpt details Melek Taus to being the one who didn't want to bow down to God, however, I see there is a lot more information on this subject. When learning looking up the website "Yeziditruth.org", the legend states how Melek Taus has different manifestations that represents him in someways. However, nowadays this website seems to be taken down, but I clue the reader as to the different Avatars of this being. 

One he is called "Murugan" the Peacock Warrior, who would the son of Shiva and Parvati, and the brother of Ganesh. He is also called "Skanda" or "Kartikeya" as well. Here are soem excerpts from the Wiki: "Kartikeya, also known as Skanda, Kumara, Murugan, Mahasena, Shanmukha and Subrahmanya, is the Hindu god of war. He is a son of Parvati and Shiva, brother of Ganesha, and a god whose life story has many versions in Hinduism."

"An important deity in the Indian subcontinent since ancient times, Kartikeya is particularly popular and predominantly worshipped in South India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia as Murugan. Kartikeya is an ancient god, traceable to the Vedic era. Archaeological evidence from 1st-century CE and earlier, where he is found with Hindu god Agni (fire), suggest that he was a significant deity in early Hinduism. He is found in many medieval temples all over India, such as at the Ellora Caves and Elephanta Caves."

"The iconography of Kartikeya varies significantly; he is typically represented as an ever-youthful man, riding or near an Indian Peacock, called Paravani, dressed with weapons sometimes with a rooster in the flag he holds. Most icons show him with one head, but some show him with six heads reflecting the legend surrounding his birth. He grows up quickly into a philosopher-warrior, destroys evil in the form of demon Taraka, teaches the pursuit of ethical life and the theology of Shaiva Siddhanta. He has inspired many poet-saints, such as Arunagirinathar."

"Kartikeya is found as a primary deity in temples wherever communities of the Tamil people live worldwide, particularly in Tamil Nadu state of India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa and Réunion. Three of the six richest and busiest temples in Tamil Nadu are dedicated to him. The Kataragama temple dedicated to him in Sri Lanka attracts Tamils, Sinhalese people and the Vedda people. He is also found in other parts of India, sometimes as Skanda, but in a secondary role along with Ganesha, Parvati and Shiva."

"Kartikeya is known by numerous names in ancient and medieval texts of the Indian culture. Most common among these are Murugan, Kumara, Skanda, and Subrahmanya. Others include Aaiyyan, Cheyyon, Senthil, Vēlaṇ, Swaminatha ("ruler of the gods", from -natha king), śaravaṇabhava ("born amongst the reeds"), Arumugam or ṣaṇmukha ("six-faced"), Dandapani ("wielder of the mace", from -pani hand), Guha (cave, secret) or Guruguha (cave-teacher), Kadhirvelan, Kathiresan, Kandhan, Vishakha and Mahasena. In ancient coins where the inscription has survived along with his images, his names appear as Kumara, Brahmanya or Brahmanyadeva."

"On some ancient Indo-Scythian coins, his names appear in Greek script as Skanda, Kumara and Vishaka. In ancient statues, he appears as Mahasena, Skanda and Vishakha. Skanda is derived from skand-, which means "leap or attack". In Kalidasa’s epic poem Kumarasambhava (“The Birth of the War God”; 5th century CE), as in most versions of the story, the gods wished for Skanda to be born in order to destroy the demon Taraka, who had been granted a boon that he could be killed only by a son of Shiva. They sent Parvati to induce Shiva to marry her."

"Shiva, however, was lost in meditation and was not attracted to Parvati until he was struck by an arrow from the bow of Kama, the god of love, whom he immediately burned to ashes. After many years of abstinence, Shiva’s seed was so strong that the gods, fearing the result, sent Agni, the god of fire, to interrupt Shiva’s amorous play with Parvati. Agni received the seed and dropped it into the Ganges, where Skanda was born. Kartikeya means "of the Krittikas".

"This epithet is also linked to his birth. After he appears on the banks of the River Ganges, he is seen by the six of the seven brightest stars cluster in the night sky called Krittikas in Hindu texts (called Pleiades in Greek texts). These six mothers all want to take care of him and nurse baby Kartikeya. Kartikeya ends the argument by growing five more heads to have a total of six heads so he can look at all six mothers, and let them each nurse one. The six Krittikas are Śiva, Sambhūti, Prīti, Sannati, Anasūya and Kṣamā."

In Tamil literature: "The Tolkāppiyam, one of the most ancient texts of the Tamil literature, mentions cēyōṉ "the red one", who is identified with Murugan, whose name is literally Murukaṉ "the youth"; the other gods referred to in the Tolkāppiyam are Māyōṉ "the dark one" (identified with Vishnu), Vēntaṉ "the sovereign" (identified with Indra) and Korravai "the victorious" (identified with Kali) and Varunan "the sea god". Extant Sangam literature works, dated between the third century BCE and the fifth century CE glorified Murugan, "the red god seated on the blue peacock, who is ever young and resplendent," as "the favoured god of the Tamils." Korravai is often identified as the mother of Murugan."

"In the Tirumurukāṟtruuppaṭai, he is called Muruku and described as a god of beauty and youth, with phrases such as "his body glows like the sun rising from the emerald sea". It describes him with six faces each with a function, twelve arms, his victory over evil, and the temples dedicated to him in the hilly regions."

Legends: "The Epic era literature of ancient India recite numerous legends of Kartikeya, often with his other names such as Skanda. For example, the Vana Parva of the Mahabharata dedicates chapters 223 to 232 to the legends of Skanda, but depicts him as the son of Agni and Svaha. Similarly, Valmiki's Ramayana dedicates chapters 36 and 37 to Skanda, but describes him as the child of deities Rudra (Shiva) and Parvati, whose birth is aided by Agni and Ganga."

"The legends of Kartikeya vary significantly, sometimes within the same text. For example, while the Vana Parva of the Mahabharata describes Skanda as the son of Agni, the Shalya Parva and the Anushasana Parva of the same text presents Skanda's legend as the son of Maheshvara (Shiva) and Parvati. In Vana Parva, the circumstances behind Kartikeya's birth legend do not involve Shiva and Parvati. Rather it is deity Agni who goes to a hermitage of seven married Rishis (sages) and meets their seven wives. He is sexually attracted to all seven, but none reciprocate. Svaha is present there and she is attracted to Agni, but Agni is not."

"According to the legend, Svaha takes the form of six of the wives, one by one, and sleeps with Agni. She does not take the form of Arundhati, Vasistha's wife, because of Arundhati's extraordinary virtuous powers. Svaha deposits the semen of Agni into the reeds of River Ganges, where it develops and then is born as six headed Skanda. A totally different legend in the later books of the Mahabharata make Shiva and Parvati as the parents. They were making love, but they are disturbed, and Shiva inadvertently spills his semen on the ground. Shiva's semen incubates in River Ganges, preserved by the heat of god Agni, and this fetus is born as baby Kartikeya on the banks of Ganges."

"Some legend state that he was the elder son of Shiva, others make him the younger brother of Ganesha. This is implied by another legend connected to his birth. Devas have been beaten up by Asuras led by Taraka, because Taraka had a boon from ascetic celibate yogi Shiva that only Shiva's son can kill him. Devas learn about this boon, and plan how to get Shiva into a relationship. So they bring Parvati into the picture, have her seduce yogi Shiva, and wed Parvati so that Skanda can be born to kill Taraka."

"According to Raman Varadara, Murugan or Kartikeya was originally a Tamil deity, who was adopted by north Indians. He was the god of war in the Dravidian legends, and became so elsewhere in the Indian subcontinent too. In contrast, G. S. Ghurye states that according to the archeological and epigraphical evidence, the contemporary Murugan, Subrahmanya and Kartikeya is a composite of two influences, one from south and one from north in the form of Skanda and Mahasena."

"He as the warrior-philosopher god was the patron deity for many ancient northern and western Hindu kingdoms, and of the Gupta Empire, according to Ghurye. After the 7th-century, Skanda's importance diminished while his brother Ganesha's importance rose in the west and north, while in the south the legends of Murugan continued to grow. According to Norman Cutler, Kartikeya-Murugan-Skanda of South and North India coalesced over time, but some aspects of the South Indian iconography and mythology for Murugan have remained unique to Tamil Nadu."

"Kartikeya's legends vary by region. For example, in the northern and western Indian traditions Kartikeya or Skanda is the perpetual celibate bachelor, though Sanskrit texts mention Devasena as his wife. However in the Tamil legends he has two consorts, Devayanai (identified with Devasena) and Valli. Many of the major events in Murugan's life take place during his youth, and legends surrounding his birth are popular in Tamil Nadu."

"This has encouraged the worship of Murugan as a child-God, very similar to the worship of the child Krishna in north India. Kartikeya's youth, beauty and bravery was much celebrated in Sanskrit works like the Kathasaritsagara. Kalidasa made the birth of Kumara the subject of a lyrical epic, the Kumārasambhava."

Now, based from this story should give the reader a clue, that this is where the story of Michael the Archangel battling the "Red Dragon" is based on.

Now, look up the "Taraka demon" that fought against the Gods, before Muruga had defeated him. Based from the Wiki states this: "Tārakāsura or Tāraka, Tharakasuran, Tarakasura was a powerful asura in Hindu mythology. He was son of a powerful Asura Vajranaka and his wife Vajrangini. Taraka had three sons Tarakaksha, Vidyunmāli and Kamalaksha, who were known as Tripurasura."

"Tarakasura repeatedly defeated the gods until heaven was on the verge of collapse. Yet he had a clever boon that he could be defeated only by the son of Shiva, who was a complete yogi, given to severe austerities, far from any thoughts of marriage. However, Parvati who was re-incarnation of Sati, Shiva's wife and also incarnation of Aadi Shakti who was once a part of Shiva, in their Ardhanarishvara form. Eventually their son Kartikeya was born. Kartikeya killed Tarakasura and his brothers Simhamukhan and Surapadman who eventually became the mounts of Parvati and Kartikeya."

Now, let's compare this to Revelations 12:7-12: "7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

"10And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."

Amongst the Tamil, Melek Taus would be called "Murugan", and to the Christians "Michael the Archangel". One of the versions of Murugan's birth state sthat he was originally born from Agni, prior to the story of Shiva and Parvati creating him.

Now, from what I remember, Melek Taus would be called "Michael the Archangel" and "Murugan". He is also "St. George" who slays the Dragon, he is called "The Green Man", "Osiris" as Lord of the Underworld, "Krishna", and "Dionysus" or "Bacchus". These are very important connections to understand, and how this will connect to the Chapter "The Black God", "King of the World", and "Prophets of Baal". But based on the "Peacock" connections, shows that he is also called "Indra", to which is the prototype to Murugan, as he would be called the "thousand eyed one" (due to the Peacock symbology), to numerous figures resembling the Peacock symbology.

Now, aside from the Peacock symbology, he is shown to have a cockeral symbol as well. Does the symbol of "Abraxas" hold the connections to "God of this world", as the legend states that God gave Melek Taus the world to manage? This is where the term "Demiurge" is said to be based on, whatever people state the being os good or evil. Some would call him the devil based on this position, while others view him as a benevolent being who upholds justice and righteousness. He is said to be the ruler of “365” Eons or heavens.

Murugan can connect to the Sumerian God "Nergal" meaning "Dunghill Cock". Here in the Wiki states this :"Nergal, Nirgal, or Nirgali is a deity that was worshipped throughout ancient Mesopotamia (Akkad, Assyria, and Babylonia) with the main seat of his worship at Cuthah represented by the mound of Tell-Ibrahim. Other names for him are Erra and Irra. Nergal is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the deity of the city of Cuth (Cuthah): "And the men of Babylon made Succoth-benoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal" (2 Kings, 17:30).

"According to the Talmudists, his emblem was a cockerel and Nergal means a "dunghill cock", although standard iconography pictured Nergal as a lion. He is a son of Enlil and Ninlil, along with Nanna and Ninurta." (I will reveal how this connects to Shiva and Parvati for Murugan, and Osiris and Isis for Horus)

"Nergal seems to be in part a solar deity, sometimes identified with Shamash, but only representative of a certain phase of the sun. Portrayed in hymns and myths as a god of war and pestilence, Nergal seems to represent the sun of noontime and of the summer solstice that brings destruction, high summer being the dead season in the Mesopotamian annual cycle. He has also been called "the king of sunset".

"Over time Nergal developed from a war god to a god of the underworld. In the mythology, this occurred when Enlil and Ninlil gave him the underworld. Nergal was also the deity who presides over the netherworld, and who stands at the head of the special pantheon assigned to the government of the dead (supposed to be gathered in a large cave known as Aralu or Irkalla)."

"In this capacity he has associated with him a goddess Allatu or Ereshkigal, though at one time Allatu may have functioned as the sole mistress of Aralu, ruling in her own person. (See the "Queen of Heaven" for the connections of Allah to Allat) In some texts the god Ninazu is the son of Nergal and Allatu/Ereshkigal. Ordinarily Nergal pairs with his consort Laz. Standard iconography pictured Nergal as a lion, and boundary-stone monuments symbolise him with a mace surmounted by the head of a lion." (See "The Black God" for the connection to Hermes)

"In the late Babylonian astral-theological system Nergal is related to the planet Mars. As a fiery god of destruction and war, Nergal doubtless seemed an appropriate choice for the red planet, and he was equated by the Greeks to the war-god Ares (Latin Mars)—hence the current name of the planet. In Assyro-Babylonian ecclesiastical art the great lion-headed colossi serving as guardians to the temples and palaces seem to symbolise Nergal, just as the bull-headed colossi probably typify Ninurta." Similar to Murugan who is also known for the symbol of Mars."

As well, there are references in the Bible as God having a "Cockatrice". Isaiah 11:8 “And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.” Isaiah 14:29 “Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.” Isaiah 59:5 “They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.”

Based from the etymology states this: "cockatrice (n.) fabulous monster, late 14c., from Old French cocatriz, altered (by influence of coq) from Late Latin *calcatrix, from Latin calcare "to tread" (from calx (1) "heel;" see calcaneus), as translation of Greek ikhneumon, literally "tracker, tracer."

"It was fabled to kill by its glance and could be slain only by tricking it into seeing its own reflection. In classical writings, an Egyptian animal of some sort, the mortal enemy of the crocodile, which it tracks down and kills. This vague sense became hopelessly confused in the Christian West, and in England the word ended up applied to the equivalent of the basilisk."

"Popularly associated with cock (n.1), hence the fable that it was a serpent hatched from a cock's egg. It also sometimes was confused with the crocodile. Belief in them persisted even among the educated because the word was used in the KJV several times to translate a Hebrew word for "serpent." In heraldry, a beast half cock, half serpent. Also, in old slang, "a loose woman" (1590s)."

But what is the real truth in all of this? (In the show "Lucifer" details Lucifer's twin brother called "Michael Demiurgos", to whom had set up Lucifer to fall from grace)

Amongst the Hindu stories, it is said that Murugan is Agni’s son, who then would defeat the demon wreaking havoc in heaven and would be born from the reeds of the marsh.

Shiva as the post Vedic version of Agni, was said to have Murugan without conception from his wife Parvati when they were in the reeds (doing business), only then Murugan was born as a virgin yogi to fight the demon.

In the Sumerian myths tells of Enlil who was doing some “business” with his wife in the waters and had conceived the moon god Sin (which would be the epithet of Nergal).

The Zulu myth of Unkulunkulu, tells of him being conceived from his father Umvelinqanqi and the marsh goddess Uhlanga among the reeds.

Then there is the story of Athena the Virgin goddess and Hephaestus. The story states that Hephaestus tries to rape Athena as he was infatuated with her, but his seed goes upon her leg, and thus she takes it and throws it into the ground, to which the seed comes forth Erichthonius.

In the Set and Horus story states that when Set tried to rape Horus, Horus catches his seed and puts it into Set's favorite food (Lettuce made by Isis). However, after Set eats it, he then gets a headache and (as one version states) a sun disk comes forth out of him. Then in another version of this story, states that Thoth emerges from his forehead.

In the Sumerian story of Enki also details him and the spider deity Utu (Athena's symbol). It states that he tries to rape her, but his seed is taken and given to Ninhursag his wife, who then throws it onto the ground and out sprouts eight plants. Enki then eats the plants and gets sick, but Ninhursag then heals him and takes the seed giving birth to eight gods.

In the Greek mythos states that Zeus didn't want his unborn Child from Metis to overthrow him. So, he tells Metis to turn into water, to which he swallows her in the form of the water. Later, Zeus gets a headache and then asks Hephaestus to open a cleft in his skull. Then after it was done, the Goddess Athena is then born from the forehead of Zeus. 

You can see the correlations between one God being born is a similar manner. Now, based on Cronus trying to swallow his children, would also be similar to the "Red Dragon" trying to swallow the child of the woman. It seems that this reoccurring theme is shown as one God trying to prevent an overthrow from another. Based from Madame Blavatsky states this segment: "In the book "The Secret Doctrine" by Madam Blavatsky chapter XI. DEMON EST DEUS INVERSUS. [[Vol. 1, Page]] 418 THE SECRET DOCTRINE. details this interesting segment: "...At the same time they show that Michael, "the generalissimos of the fighting Celestial Host, the bodyguard of Jehovah," as it would seem (see de Mirville) is also a Titan, only with the adjective of "divine" before the cognomen. Thus those "Uranides" who are called everywhere "divine Titans," and who, having rebelled against Kronos (Saturn), are therefore also shown to be the enemies of Samael (an Elohim, also and synonymous with Jehovah in his collectivity), are identical with Michael and his host."

"In short, the roles are reversed, all the combatants are confused, and no student is able to distinguish clearly which is which. Esoteric explanation may, however, bring some order into this confusion, in which Jehovah becomes Saturn, and Michael (As Zeus) and his army, Satan and the rebellious angels, owing to the indiscreet endeavours of the too faithful zealots to see in every pagan god a devil. The true meaning is far more philosophical, and the legend of the first "Fall" (of the angels) assumes a scientific colouring when correctly understood."

"The Titans of Hesiod's Theogony were copied in Greece from the Suras and Asuras of India. These Hesiodic Titans, the Uranides, numbered once upon a time as only six, have been recently discovered to be seven -- the seventh being called Phoreg -- in an old fragment relating to the Greek myth. Thus their identity with the Seven rectors is fully demonstrated. The origin of the "War in Heaven" and the FALL has, in our mind, to be traced unavoidably to India, and perhaps far earlier than the Puranic accounts thereof. For TARAMAYA was in a later age, and there are three accounts, each of a distinct war, to be traced in almost every Cosmogony."

Here, the Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa gives more detail of the reptilians called the Chitauri who came to this planet with their leader, and was described as having “three eyes”, and if looked upon they would die in an instant. He also states that the real god "Unkulukulu" came and fought the reptilians until they retreated underground. The God with "three eyes" seems to be Shiva and his third eye, who was said to kill a person when gazed upon.

Does this synchronize with the Red Dragon and his angels coming down after their defeat, and making war on the seed of the woman in Revelations 12:17?

But before we get further, let's talk about this significant weapon that is used to defeat the opposing Gods. This weapon is called the "Vajra" weapon. Let's see what the Wiki states on this weapon: "A vajra is a ritual weapon symbolizing the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force). The vajra is a type of club with a ribbed spherical head. The ribs may meet in a ball-shaped top, or they may be separate and end in sharp points with which to stab."

"The vajra is the weapon of the Indian Vedic rain and thunder-deity Indra, and is used symbolically by the dharma traditions of Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism, often to represent firmness of spirit and spiritual power. According to the Indian mythology, vajra is considered one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. The use of the vajra as a symbolic and ritual tool spread from the Hindu religion to other religions in India and other parts of Asia."

"According to Asko Parpola, the Sanskrit vajra- and Avestan vazra- both refer to a weapon of the Godhead, and are possibly from the Proto-Indo-European root *weg'- which means "to be(come) powerful". It is related to Proto-Finno-Uralic *vaśara, "hammer, axe", but both the Sanskrit and Finno-Ugric derivatives are likely Proto-Aryan or Proto-Indo-Aryan but not Proto-Iranian, state Parpola and Carpelan, because of its palatalized sibilant. It is cognate to Ukonvasara from Finnish mythology, and Mjolnir from Norse mythology."

"Rigveda The earliest mention of the vajra is in the Rigveda, part of the four Vedas. It is described as the weapon of Indra, the chief among Gods. Indra is described as using the vajra to kill sinners and ignorant persons. The Rigveda states that the weapon was made for Indra by Tvastar, the maker of divine instruments. The associated story describes Indra using the vajra, which he held in his hand, to slay the asura Vritra, who took the form of a serpent."

"On account of his skill in wielding the vajra, some epithets used for Indra in the Rigveda were Vajrabhrit (bearing the vajra), Vajrivat or Vajrin (armed with the vajra), Vajradaksina (holding the vajra in his right hand), and Vajrabahu or Vajrahasta (holding the vajra in his hand)."

"The association of the Vajra with Indra was continued with some modifications in the later Puranic literature, and in Buddhist works. Buddhaghoṣa, a major figure of Theravada Buddhism in the 5th century, identified the Bodhisattva Vajrapani with Indra."

In the Rig Vedas states book 6.17.10 “Yea, strong one! Tvastar turned for thee, the mighty, the bolt with a thousand spikes and hundred edges, eager and prompt at will, wherewith thou crushed the boasting dragon…”

(Amongst the few verses of the Rig Vedas actually state Indra to having blonde hair. R.V. 10.96.8 "At the swift draught the Soma-drinker waxed in might, the Iron One with yellow beard and yellow hair. He, Lord of Tawny Coursers, Lord of fleet-foot Mares, will bear his Bay Steeds safely over all distress." Verse 5 "5 Thou, thou, when praised by men who sacrificed of old. hadst pleasure in their lauds, O Indra golden-haired. All that befits thy song of praise thou welcornest, the perfect pleasant gift, O Golden-hued from birth." R.V.10.23.4 "4 With him too is this rain of his that comes like herds: Indra throws drops of moisture on his yellow beard. When the sweet juice is shed he seeks the pleasant place, and stirs the worshipper as wind disturbs the wood." But I will reveal the changes in the Rig Vedas later in the coming chapters)

This is the same weapon that is wielded by Indra, Perun, and Marduk, Zeus, Jupiter etc. The Vajra weapon is very important to understand, as this is the weapon that defeated the "Red Dragon". There are gods would wield this weapon, like the Thunder deity Teshub, but is said to be identified as Typhon. However, this isn't so, for the symbol of water belongs to Mercury, which connects to Horus, who then battles Set (who represents "fire", but whoever wrote this states that Typhon is equated to Set). Zeus would be Indra, which is where Indra means "drop" meaning rain drop, and the fire deity Vritra would be known for drought and famine (symbolic-wise). So, Teshub is really a rain, thunder and a water god for the symbolism of fertility. However, depending on the stories, the two gods would switch elements overall, like the Chinese "Zhurong" the fire God battling "Gong Gong", who represents water.

This is the archangel Michael in his many forms, as he is the one who wields the Vajra weapon that defeated the Red Dragon. There is Odin who is known as the god with “one eye”, also holds the thunder weapon called the Vajra. Shiva with the trident, Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and guess what... he is also Baal the storm god. Then you can see Murugan’s spear having the six-pointed star all leading to the Peacock angel Michael. Then the Cross is the weapon of Michael leading back to the Vajra weapon used by Indra. It's also shaped into a spear like the Trishula, the Caduceus or Kerykeion, and also the Fleur-de-lis, as it looks like the Vajra weapon.

Now, on this updated Chapter, I will detail what the "Red Dragon" originally was, and how this has been played throughout the religions. But first, remember the "cockeral" symbol? The Peacock Angel displays a connection to Hermes, who then would play a big role in the battle of the Gods (See "Queen of Heaven"). But first let's recap on some information:

Here Zeus and Jupiter can connect to "Dyeus" meaning “Sky father” in Greco-Roman mythology, leading to "God". In Sumerian, he is Marduk as the one who fought the Dragon Tiamat, and Ninurta who battles against the "Anzu bird". Among the Hindus He is Indra, who is labeled the "King of the Gods". He is also called Murugan, Karthikeya, or Skanda the God of war.

Then the Slavic myths of Perun who wields the ax and thunderbolts. He is Odin and Thor amongst the Scandinavians. Then there is the god "Baal", Bel or Hadad of the middle east. In China, he is the Jade Emperor, Heidi, Xuanwu and the Buddha. Then Shango thunder god of west Africa, Susanoo, Manjusri of the Japanese and Tibetans.

The same goes for Vritra who kept the waters from the earth, bringing the “drought” until Indra ( for “rain drop” or “drop”) confronts him and kills him, thus releasing the waters. (Ezekiel 29 details Egypt being compared to that of the great dragon who stands upon the waters as his property)

Then in Job 41 details the proud dragon Leviathan may connect to Vritra as the Rig Vedas states. This is the similar to Horus of the black soil fighting against Set of the red desert, as one represents the wet water and the other the dry fire. All the myths would detail the battle between the two gods, the one good and the other evil (depending on perspective).

Thus, this would all connect to Murugan, Perun, Indra and Zeus as the god with peacock feathers. Now, the story of the woman who is clothed with the sun having twelve stars around her head and the moon under her feet in Revelations 12, is about a story of a goddess who bears a child to defeat the demon destroying the heavens. In Revelations 12, the story of the Red Dragon wanting to devour the man child of the woman is the same story as the Egyptian goddess Isis, who being pregnant with Horus and was hunted by Set’s "72" followers to kill the child. And when Horus being saved grows up to fight against Set, is the same as the story as the man-child being caught up to God and battling the Red dragon.

Then there is the meso-American birth of Huitzilopochtli, who came out of his mother Coatlicue in full armor and weapons. He goes out to defeat the leader Coyolxauhqui and the 400 Huiztnauas (warriors), by cutting the leaders head off and her body into pieces. This is similar to the story of Quetzalcoatl/Kulkukan, as they are born from Chimalman to defeat a foe.

The same story goes for Zeus who was born from the goddess Rhea, but was saved from being swallowed by Cronus/Saturn, by being replaced with the omphalos stone. Then after Zeus was saved, he grows up on the island of Crete, and then goes out to defeat the Titans with the Vajra thunder weapon.

The same is said for the goddess Athena, when Zeus didn't want to be overthrown by the child of his pregnant wife Metis, he then swallows her (in her watery form). But in turn gets a headache, so Hephaestus creates a cleft on his head and out comes Athena fully clad in armor and weapons. (same story as Set swallowing the food with semen and gets a headache, until Thoth emerges from his head)

In the South African story, there was a monster who was swallowing up the people in a village and then came after a pregnant woman with child. The woman finds a hiding place and already gives birth to a full grown boy (named "Moshanyana") with armor and weapons, and thus goes to fight the monster and defeats it. It states that he cuts open the monster and frees the people who was swallowed. (same as Saturn vomiting his children)

The same story is recycled from Apollo the sun god, who then slays the serpent Python, who was sent by Zeus’ wife Hera to kill him and his mother. Apparently, Zeus would have his flings with the mortal women and bear many demigods and goddesses, but here the story tells of him having a child with Leto, but prior to giving birth to Apollo, they were being hunted by the Titan Python. So, the Titans are likened to the Jinn race in Islam, the Jotunn race in the Norse, the demon race in the Journey to the west and the Asuras/Danavas in Hinduism.

There is a movie called “Orochi the eight-headed dragon”, which is a story about the moon god Tsukuyomi coming to earth after being banished by the gods. In the coming battle, He turns into a Red dragon with eight heads and fights against the heroes who rides upon the peacock. The Peacock then changes into an angel who carries a bolt (Vajra) and a sword. Another Japanese story states the fire God Kagu-tsuchi, who apparently burned his mother when he was born, but got his head cut off by his father Izanagi and was cut into pieces, thus becoming volcanoes.

Then there is the Klamath Indian legend of the sky god Skell battling the god of the underworld Llao. After a long drawn out battle, Skell finally defeats Llao by cutting him up and giving his body parts to the fishes. This is also similar to that of Set cutting up Osiris and throwing his body parts in the river. However, in one story states that Skell is defeated by Llao and the heart is left, but the heart is retrieved by Skell's warriors and is revived. (similar to Dionysus story of being dismembered and is revived by Zeus with just the heart) A similar story relates to the Asura Rahu, who was beheaded after drinking the Nectar (Amrit) of the gods by Vishnu, but was able to live forever.

Now, there would be paintings showing Michael defeating a "dog" like beast, instead of a dragon or a devil. Apparently, when looking up the dog symbolism, they are known to be connected to the Underworld. In some books, Rudra is said to have dogs as his symbol, possibly linking to Sirius the dog star. Anubis as a Dog faced beast, would be considered the original God of the Underworld, thus linking to Osiris. It's possible that the "dog faced" Baboon version of Thoth, can connect to the Underworld, whereas the Ibis can connect to "Iblis".

Loki would have the children Fenrir the "wolf", the serpent of Midgard "Jormungand" and "Hel" the queen of the underworld. These are merely the symbols leading to Loki with the wolf, the serpent and the god of the underworld. Mars is said to be connected to dogs as his symbol. The dog symbolism also connects to Odin, as he is Mercury and the "Lord of the Dead". Even Mithra of the Persians and Artemis the goddess of the hunt, would have dogs as their symbols. (However, this is further discussed in the "The Lord of Sirius" and "Galactic Warfare" series)

Now, there is a story pertaining to Nergal's connection to Shiva. In the Sumerian Lore details Enlil and Ninlil producing Nergal as the god of the underworld, is the same as Shiva and Parvati creating Murugan, who then goes out to defeat the Tarakasura. However, at times Shiva and Murugan would be one and the same as the different stories are told throughout the world.

For example the story of the Banquet in Sumerian states this. Based from the Wiki on this story states this: "According to this myth, the gods have created a banquet for which all deities are invited. However, Ereshkigal is unable to leave the underworld. Instead, she sends her son Namtar to take a share of the feast. When Namtar arrives, the other deities rise out of respect except for Erra."

"Insulted, Namtar goes home and tells his mother. Enki and other gods tell Nergal to enter the underworld. Nergal takes with him 14 demons. When he arrives, the gatekeeper Neti gets orders from Ereshkigal to allow him through the seven gates, stripping him of everything until the throne room, where he would be killed. But at each gate, Nergal posts two demons. When he gets to the throne he knocks over Namtar and drags Ereshkigal to the floor."

"He is about to kill her with his ax when she pleads for her life, promising her as his wife and to share her power with him. He consents. However, Nergal must still leave the underworld for six months, so Ereshkigal gives him back his demons and allows him to traverse the upper world for that time, after which he returns to her." This story is based on Persephone being abducted by Hades, and having eaten the small pomegranet is confined to stay in the underworld for six months.

Now, based from the story of Shiva states that due to marrying Sati, Daksha (her father) had lost respect for the couple. One day Daksha hosts a banquet (or Yajna) and invites the gods except for Shiva and Sati. Sati in turn goes to see her father, but is yelled at and brought to the point of commiting suicide by throwing herself to the fire.

Upon hearing this angers Shiva is angered, and thus creates two demons from his hair lock and commands them to destroy the gods. The demons come over and one of them called "Bhairava", cuts off Daksha's head as punishment, and is later replaced with a goat's head by Shiva. Another similar story is when the Egyptian god Horus was battling Set, that Isis either accidently shoots horus or let's Set escape, but due to this Horus gets angered and severs her mother's head, but is replaced with the head of a cow. See the similarities?

Now, in Isaiah 51 verse 9 states of how “God cut Rahab and wounded the dragon." Can this connect to Revelations 12 as Michael (thunder angel) and his angels fighting against the Red Dragon (fire angel) and his angels? From Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine”, states of Samael being called Simoom as the “hot winds” relating to the fiery presence of His flames.

Madam Blavatsky also explains about the opponent of Indra being the moon god Soma, is known as Samael the god of destruction and fire, who then fights against Michael and his angels in revelations 12:7. (Samael is supposed to mean "blind of God" or "Venom of God". If Baraqiel means "Lightning of God", then what is the Hebrew term for the "Fire God"? Perhaps name is supposed to be "Eshel"....)

Now, the fire god Set is said to be likened to Typhon as they are supposed to represent the “hot winds”, as well as having red hair. However, at times the roles are reversed as the God of fire defeating the water god, which is basically Set (as a fire God) defeating Osiris, who then becomes the god of the underworld.

This again, mirrors to the Indian Klamath legend of the sky god Skell cutting up the underworld deity Llao into pieces, and Zhurong the fire deity defeating the water deity Gong Gong. But again, the roles are reversed as the son of the defeated God comes to fight against the fire God, as Horus (Michael).

Now, let us look at the beginning of the Jesuit foundation that was started by Ignatius of Loyola, and how he came to begin his agenda by bringing the “Cross of Michael” to the world. Ignatius was said to be of Basque descent who fought in a battle, but got injured during his duty. He later comes to seek spirituality by secluding himself in a cave, to which has an apparition of something looking like a serpent that shone these “eyes” all around, and yet, are not actual eyes.

Then another Documentary detailing his life also shows him lying on the bed and seeing an apparition of “wings with eyes.” And judging from these set of “eyes”, must be the one called Michael who came to him in a vision. So, when you see Michael’s feathers, it's shown as peacock wings which are like eyes and yet are not.

Now, the symbol of Perun is shown to be a "six-pointed star", thus connecting to the Peacock angel Murugan:

Now, the six-pointed star of Perun looks the “Cube”. Can this connect to the Star of Moloch that is mentioned in the Bible? So, with that said, Revelations 12:7 is shown to be in every mythology throughout the whole world. 

Now, in the upcoming Chapter "Wars of the Lords", I will detail how Agni is not the Peacock angel based from the Yezidi's stand point, but is the fiery dragon leading back to the origin of the fiery phoenix. I will get to the original story of the fiery bird and the being called "Satan", only then you will see how much has changed overtime.
