I would like to welcome everyone to the Gate-Walker Info Page. If this is your first time here, please review some of our previous articles located in the menu section first.
In some of our previous posts, we spoke about the connections between the Simon Necronomicon Current and Enochian Magic, which can be seen here. After posting these articles, a few Gate-Walkers (Asarus), who have been working with the Rites of the Ancient Ones, have also stumbled across some interesting insights concerning this subject.
I was recently contacted by an Ancient One via telephone. We often share experiences and have been diligently working on the mystical aspects of the Simon Necronomicon Current as revealed in the Urillia Text workings. He told me that he was in one of the meditative practices of the Ancient Ones. During this meditation he was able to see the trials of the Mad Arab, and also noticed the Mad Arab melting away. In this ‘trance” he was told to look up the term Mad Arab in Enochian and it would reveal a new perspective in the Necronomicon Tradition, and he did just that.
After he discussed his experience with me, I decided to do the same, and the result shed a new light on the identity of the Mad Arab, as well as, reinforcing some of the material that we discussed earlier. so before we get into the deeper aspects of this discussion, it is imperative that we define the term Mad Arab in Enochian. Let us look further into this matter
Enochian English Meaning
Mad God or Your God
Ab Daughter of Light
Form the above Enochian Translation, we can easily see that the term Mad Arab means Your God that Daughter of Light. This would seem to indicate that the Mad Arab was indeed Ishtar. Now I must remind the reader that Ishtar is another aspect of Tiamat. We discussed this in one our previous articles entitled The Qliphothic Tree of Transformation Part 2. The term Ishtar is a metaphor describing a Class of Watchers, which is identical to the Bridegroom Class that Jesus (Enki) was seeking to resurrect in the Christian Mythologies. I would also like to make aware to the reader that there are some very good articles that explore the depths of Ishtar’s identification with Tiamat that can be viewed here and here.
Now that we have discovered that the term Mad Arab is a reference to Ishtar, let us compare the parts of the Simon Necronomicon to see if it also gives some references to this as well.
First, it should be obvious that the Mad Arab, according to his/her First Testimony, is in the same condition that Ishtar was in when she visited Cutha. The Mad Arab concludes his First Testimony by revealing to us that “the entire host of Ereshkigal lies waiting, dreaming, drooling for my departure.” We find this statement is an echo of what appears in the Magan Text:
There is also something interesting that can be gleamed for the Mad Arab’s First Testimony, which is contained in the Mad Arab’s opening words:
“I have seen One Thousand-and-One Moons and surely this is enough for the span of a man’s life, though it is said the Prophets lived much longer.”
The life-span of the “Prophets,” that the Mad Arab is referring to is none other than Enoch who lived for 365 years, which is a reference to the Solar Rites, since there are 365 days in a Solar year, and Enoch was 7th in line from Adam symbolizing the 7 days of a week. However, if we keep in mind that there are 13 moons in one Solar year and divide 13 into 1,001- we would get the number 77, or 77 years.
The sum of our calculation, being 77 years, is a metaphor. The Mad Arab opens up his First testimony by stating that he has “seen One Thousand-and-One moons.” Later on in his Testimony he states the following:
“But now, after One Thousand-and-One moons of the journey, The maskim nip at my heels, the Rabishu pull at my hair.”
Here we can see that the “One Thousand-and-One moons” is not the actual time that the Mad Arab lived, but was a metaphor for the time that he spent as an Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition. There are other factors that will help us to see that the “Mad Arab” was a personification of the Ishtar Class of Watchers.
