I would like to take the time now to show some of the Mysteries of the Necronomicon (Qliphotic) Tradition If this is your first time here, you may want to check some of our earlier posts to gain a deeper appreciation for our current discussion. Enjoy and stay blessed.
Since being Initiated in the Necronomicon Tradition, I have discovered over the years many parallels between the archaic knowledge contained in the Qliphotic Mysteries and many of teachings found in some of the world’s major religions, among these stands the teachings o Christianity. Some of the parallels that I found can be explored further at this link:
Or course, among scholars and the like, the Necronomicon Tradition would logically have some things in common with Christian concepts before its gentrification. We can even see how Christianity was gentrified based on the appearance of the Biblical characters possessing, for the most part European features, while the region of where the teachings began was populated predominantly by people of African, Arab, and Semitic descent. It would also seem appropriate to conclude that during this gentrification process, many of the core teachings were altered as well to try to separate it from its esoteric pagan foundation.
Recently, while practicing a form of Necronomicon meditation, I was drawn to the Four Protective Genii that appear in the Urilia Text:
“And there are Four Spirits of the Spaces, and they come upon the Wind, and they are Things of the Wind, and of Fire. And the First comes from the North, and is called USTUR, and has a Human Shape. And He is the Most Ancient of the Four, and a Great Lord of the World. And the Second comes from the East, and is called SED and has the Shape of a Bull, but with a human face, and is very mighty. And the Third comes from the south, and is called LAMAS, and is of the Shape of a Lion, but with a human head, and governs those things of the Flame and the Burning Wind. And the Fourth comes from the West, and is called NATTIG, and is of the Shape of an Eagle, but with a human body, having only the face and wings of an Eagle, with an Eagle’s claws. And this Eagle comes from the Sea and is a Great Mystery.”
Historical origins for the above passage can be found in the book, Chaldean Magic,where the author describes these same “genii” on page 144:
“In this new sphere were ranged the four principal classes of protective genii: the Sed, Alap, or Kirub, who was represented as a bull with a human face; the Lamas or Nirgal, as a lion with a man’s head; the Ustur, after the human likeness; and the Nattig with the head of an eagle; the emblems of these four classes were adopted by the prophet Ezekiel as those of the four symbolical creatures which supported the throne of Jehovah in his wondrous visions by the river Chebar.”
While researching this matter further, I was drawn to the Biblical book of revelation Chapter 4, which also describes these same Genii:
“4:5 : And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 4:6 ; And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 4:7 ; And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. “
After reading this section of Revelation, the DinGir opened my mind by way of epiphany to other “secrets” concerning the Book of Revelation and how it relates to the Necronomicon Tradition. I was already aware that the Book of Revelation are the keys to understanding certain kabbalistic correspondences, as each chapter represents one of the 22 cards of the Major Arcana appearing in every tarot deck to date.. This knowledge is not unique in itself, and may be known by the studious, but in Revelation Chapter 5, we are given insights that could only be applied to the Necronomicon:
“1: And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2: And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3: And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4: And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7: And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8: And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9: And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
This ‘Book” that was opened by the “Lamb” (Dumuzi) is none other than the Simon Necronomicon and a close examination of Chapter 5 (The ARRA Sign, or Five-Pointed-Star) will show this thoroughly:
“1: And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2: And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3: And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. “In the above passage we can clearly see a reference to the Necronomicon, for it is the only grimoire that includes a self-initiatory system that consists of Walking Seven gates, which are symbolic of the seven philosophical planets, but from a qliphotic perspective.. the verses above also highlight that “no man was found who can open the book .” This seems to show that only those who were initiated could grasp the meaning of what the book contained. Interestingly, Lovecraft writes the following in his famous story, The Call of Cthulhu:
“The size of the Old Ones, too, he curiously declined to mention. Of the cult, he said that he thought the centre lay amid the pathless deserts of Arabia, where Irem, the City of Pillars, dreams hidden and untouched. It was not allied to the European witch-cult, and was virtually unknown beyond its members. No book had ever really hinted of it, though the deathless Chinamen said that there were double meanings in the Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred which the initiated might read as they chose”
Here we see that members of the Cult of Cthulhu , the initiated, were the only ones who could understand and see through the double meanings of the passages in the Necronomicon. We find this same sentiment expressed in the Simon Necronomicon:
“BUT KNOW THAT INANNA TAKES HER OWN FOR HER OWN, AND THAT ONCE CHOSEN BY HER NO MAN MAY TAKE ANOTHER BRIDE.”
In the Simon Necronomicon, as seen in the passage cited above, only those who are chosen by Ishtar are able to understand the meaning of the tome. Those who are able to understand these deeper things are described in Revelation as follows:
“4: And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. “
This above passage we are able to easily identify the opener of this “book, which would be none other than Ishtar whose symbol was the Lion. In the Journal of Ethiopian Studies-Volume 3-4, we find the following:
“This is the only place in the Holy Scriptures where we meet the phrase “the Lion of Judah“. … In Egypt it was associated with Re, in Babylonia with Ishtar, in Persia with Mithras.”
While many people often associated the “Lamb” sacrificed with Jesus, we see that the idea of sacrificing a Lamb, would likely be associated with the Loin of Judah (Ishtar) for reason expressed by narnara Walker in her classic work The Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets. On page 971, we read:
“Tammuz was imported from Babylon by the Jews, but he was even older than Babylon. He began as the Sumerian savior-god Dumuzi, or Damu., “only-begotten Son,” or “Son of the Blood.” He fertilized the earth with his blood at the time of his death, and was called Healer, Savior, Heavenly Shepherd. He tended the flocks of stars, which were considered souls of dead in heaven. Each year on the Day of Atonement he was sacrificed in the form of a lamb, son of the Holy Ewe, but his animal incarnation was considered to be a substitute for an earlier human sacrifice.”
If we were to interpret this scripture in the same manner as modern Christians we could easily point out the contradiction and confusion that appears in verse s five and six of revelation Chapter 5, since Christians usually correspond the “Lion of Judah” and the “lamb” with the one Jesus, but when taken in light of what is revealed in this essay it makes much more since and is true to the practices of the Ancient Chaldeans. It is very well documented that Ishtar precedes Dumuzi in his visit to the Underworld. So in the passaged cited in Revelation the Lion would thus precede the Lamb. If we keep in mind what was mentioned by Walker concerning Dumuzi, we can get deeper insights on the verses that follow:
“7: And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8: And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9: And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. “
Although people try to disregard the Simon Necronomicon as being a hoax, we have to credit it as the only system to date, which Initiates the candidate into forms of ancient divination that was practiced by the faithful Chaldeans. According to verse 10 in the chapter of Revelation cited above, we find that the Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition is a product of the esoteric Sacred Marriage Rite and is made a Kingly-Priest/Priestess.
“11: And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12: Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. 13: And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14: And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. “”
The fulfillment of these passages can be found in the Simon Necronomicon’s Book of Calling:
“Know, seventhly, of the Things thou art to expect in the commission of this Most sacred Magick. Study the symbols well, and do not be afraid of any awful spectre that shall invade thine operation, or haunt thine habitat by day or by night. Only charge them with them the words of the Covenant and they will do as you ask, of thou be strong. And if thou performest these operations often, thou shalt see things becoming dark; and the Wanderers in their Spheres shall no more be seen by thee; and the Stars in their places will lose their Light, and the Moon, NANNA, by whom thou also workest, shall become black and extinguished,
AND ARATAGAR SHALL BE NO MORE, AND THE EARTH SHALL ABIDE NOT
And around thee shall appear the Flame, like Lightning flashing in all directions, and all things will appear amid thunders, and from the Cavities of the Earth will leap forth the ANNUNNAKI, Dog-Faced, and thou shalt bring them down”
