The Beast Makes A Descent Into Hell
"With the God & the Adorer I am nothing: they do not see me. They are as upon
the earth; I am Heaven, and there is no other God than me and my lord Hadit." Liber al vel Legis 1:21
I have labored over the interpretation of this verse. In her message, Nuit seems to move directly
from praise and good tidings about her servants, identified as the Beast and Scarlet Woman, to a separation from them.
She calls them "the God" and "the Adorer"
to whom she is "nothing: they do not see me. They are as upon the earth; I am Heaven. . ."
Nuit assures us in verse 22 that "I am known to ye (Aiwass/Ankh-af-na-khonsu?)
by my name Nuit, and to him (the Beast) by a secret name which I will give him when at last he knoweth me."
I am reminded of a New Testament story about Jesus carrying the sins of mankind into Hades for three
days, while the creator turned His back. While dying on the cross, Jesus was said to have cried: "My God, my God, why hast
thou forsaken me?"
There is a distinct difference in the story within the Book of the Law. Nuit the goddess of infinite
space never forsakes us. Notice that the separation is an event going on below, on the planet, during which the Beast and
his Scarlet Woman, strangely identified as "the God and the Adorer" no longer recognize Nuit. She
doesn't forget them, or turn away from them.
If the truth were known, and if Jesus truly died on a cross near Jerusalem, Nuit did not forsake
him either. I fear this story is a bit of a fabrication for the sake of Christian cult followers. But this is not the place
to argue cult theology.
If my thesis about this verse is correct, it raises two important questions; 1.) Why would the Beast
and Scarlet Woman be identified by Nuit as "the God" and "his Adorer," and 2.) What is happening that would cause them to
temporarily turn their backs on Nuit.
During my research I was reminded that a proper study of this intricate work also includes comparing
parallel verses in all three chapters to find answers to problems such as mine.
In other words, Chapters One, Two and Three contain linking information, sometimes in peculiar ways.
By examining all three portions of the book, the student comes to an overall understanding of the complex puzzles raised in
this brilliant mathematical and occult creation.
Remember that Nuit speaks to us in Chapter One. She observes creation from above. Hadit is the narrator
in Chapter Two. As the energy of the planet, he sees events from below. And the child, Horus, makes the final presentation
in Chapter Three. He speaks of the present time and the future.
Hadit gives us a sense of great trouble and despair in verses 17-21:
17- "Here me, ye people of sighing!
The sorrows of pain and regret
to the dead and the dying,
The folk that not know me as yet.
18- "These are dead, these fellows; they feel not. We are not for the poor and
sad: the lords of the Earth are our kinsfolk.
19- "Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us. They shall rejoice,
our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.
20- "Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire,
are of us.
21- "We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery.
For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong:
this is our law and the joy of the world. . . "
In Chapter Three, Verse 22, Horus declares: "I am the visible object of worship;
the others are secret; for the Beast & his bride are they . . ."
This last verse is the proof of what we have suspected all along, that the Beast and the Scarlet
Woman are lovers.
In Chapter Two we have an image of death and great trouble, when the Beast is regarded by mankind
as gods on Earth. That the Beast is a magickian who destroys old failed religious
systems and gives the "children of men" a form of Luciferian spiritual science to fill this void,
apparently gives him the appearance of a god figure.
While the Earth is reeling in apocalyptic frenzy, millions of people are dying from war, disease,
and starvation the Beast and his lover are temporarily living in a hell on Earth. Yet they must remain here to do their work.
It is a time when it may be their place to separate themselves from all that is holy.
The Luciferians were an alien race that brought their DNA to the planet and through genetic manipulation
with local animals, created the human race as it exists today. Thus, to found a spiritual belief system linked to Lucifer
may be in conflict with all that Nuit and Hadit represent.
Both Nuit and Hadit are obviously forgiving, and remain emphatic about their own deity. Hadit,
while looking at the death of mankind, asks: "Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us."
The reference to the dog god seems to be looking at Anubis, the ancient Egyptian god of the dead,
a man with the head of a dog.
Nuit declares: "There is no other God than me and my lord Hadit."
