The Simon Necronomicon is probably best considered the 8th wonder of the world of literature and occult grimoire since its release in the 1970’s. While much controversy has surrounded the Simon tome, many have found it to be of great benefit and have pursued the spiritual path that we know as the great Necronomicon Tradition. Personally, I am of the opinion that there is no other grimoire that compares to the craftiness, dark poetry, and historical accuracy of the said work.

Adherents of the Necronomicon Tradition have grown rapidly over the past ten years, despite the words of critics and many who claim that the book is a hoax. Some have found it to be a tremendous source of personal transformation. We can truly say that new millennium is indeed, properly titled, the Age of the Mad Arab.

One of the amazing things about the Simon Necronomicon lies not only in its contents, but the prophecies surrounding the book, which were made by other “holy books” that exist in the societies of men. One book in particular, the Christian Bible, makes mention of the Simon tome in the book of Revelation. Anyone familiar with ancient Sumerian Mythology, upon which the structure of the Simon Necronomicon is based upon, can easily see this correlation in Revelation Chapter 5. Here we read the following:

“[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.
[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 verses that are cited above appear in the King James translation of the Holy Scriptures. Interestingly, chapter five discusses a seven-sealed book that no one could open except the “Lamb” and say such is connected with the Lion of the tribe of Judah. This clearly points t Sumerian mythology. Donald K. Sharpes, in his legendary work, entitled; Lords of The Scrolls: Literary Traditions in the Bible and Gospels, states the following on page 130:

The phrase “the lamb of god” and similar symbols from Hebrew, Jewish and Christian traditions are Sumerian in origin.”

The Lion of the tribe of Judah, would relate to the sign of Leo and to the god Latarak. Gavin White has written many excellent discourses on Babylonian Astrology, one in particular can be viewed at the following article, entitled Babylonian Leo:

Regardless of its attribution to Latarak, the Lion is especially associated with the war goddess in both literature and art. The war goddess, known as Inanna in Sumerian and Ištar in Akkadian, is sometimes simply known as the ‘Lioness of Heaven’. Mythic texts reveal that her temple throne was supported by a pair of ferocious lions, but more often than not Inanna could be found on the battle-field where the roar of her sacred lion enunciated war – ‘the lion, the dog of Ištar, roared and did not stop roaring’.”

According to White, the opener of this book is none other than DinGir Ishtar. This is quite interesting and something that may have not ever been considered till now. It seemed that the Judaic system, while inheriting many things from their Chaldean forefather Abraham, also adjusted such to fit a patriarchic society. It is due to such that the Christian crucified god was considered a male deity. However, in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon, we read the following:

“But what of INANNA, the single planetary deity having a female manifestation among the Sumerians? She is invoked in the NECRONOMICON and identified as the vanquisher of Death, for she descended into the Underworld and defeated her sister, the Goddess of the Abyss, Queen ERESHKIGAL (possibly another name for TIAMAT). Interestingly enough, the myth has many parallels with the Christian concept of Christ’s death and resurrection, among which the Crucifixion (INANNA was impaled on a stake as a corpse), the three days in the Sumerian Hades, and the eventual Resurrection are outstanding examples of how Sumerian mythology previewed the Christian religion by perhaps as many as three thousand years – a fact that beautifully illustrates the cosmic and eternal nature of this myth.”

Just as Christians anticipate the return of Christ, so too is the respected return of DinGir Ishtar heralded by those who are able to open up a book with seven seals. This is quite a fascinating feature of the fifth chapter of Revelation as it seems to be an Apocrypha of the old Chaldean rites, who preserved their rites in what is known as an “astral Necronomicon,” which the legendary magician Kenneth Grant mentioned in his writings, and later revealed in the pages of the Simon Necronomicon. This time mentioned in Revelation and the opening of a special book, pertains to the increased understanding of the ancient Chaldean rites, of a cult that existed before Babylon and maintained by adherents of the Necronomicon Tradition. There is more!

Other proof that the Simon Necronomicon is the “book” described in Revelation Chapter 5, has a lot to do with the gematria, or mathematical calculations of this part of the Christian Bible. Before we go deeper into this topic, it is important to illustrate that gematria originated in Sumeria and was passed down to the Chaldeans, who eventually passed it on to certain Jewish fractions during their captivity in Babylon.

The Doctrine of Sin in the Babylonian Religion, written by Julian Morgenstern, published in 1905, states the following on page 2:

“And not everyone could offer sacrifice or participate in the divine services. Before the baru-priest could perform his holy duties, he had to fulfill certain requirements, had to be of noble, priestly blood, a descendant of Enmeduranki; had to be of perfect bodily growth, and thoroughly acquainted with his priestly duties….Therefore, since it was man’s duty to offer sacrifice, it was first of all his duty to keep himself ritually pure.”

The information cited above illustrates how important Enmeduranki was to the ancient Babylonians, as one had to be a descendant of this pre-dynastic king of Sumer if they were to take on priesthood duties, and it was King Enmeduranki who discovered the art of gematria.

In the myth, Enmeduranki and Related Matters, we read about the king coming into power during a time where “demons” of the lower world began to overtake the Earth. King Enmeduranki was shown the mysteries of heaven and earth and given the “book of life” in order to clear out these undefiled things that had become popular in the land. Here is a portion of the text:

“1. Enmeduranki [king of Sippar],

2. The beloved of Anu, Enlil [and Ea].

4. Šamaš and Adad [brought him in] to their assembly,

5. Šamaš and Adad [honored him],

6. Šamaš and Adad [set him] on a large throne of gold,

7. They showed him how to observe oil on water, a mystery of Anu, [Enlil and Ea],

8. They gave him the tablet of the gods, the liver, a secret of heaven and [underworld],

9. They put in his hand the cedar-(rod), beloved of the great gods.

10. Then he, in accordance with their [word(?)] brought

11. The men of Nippur, Sippar and Babylon into his presence,

12. And he honored them. He set them on thrones before [him],

13. He showed them how to observe oil of water, a mystery of Anu, Enlil and Ea,

14. He gave them the tablet of the gods, the liver, a secret of heaven and underworld,”

We later read in this mythology the following:

15. He put in their hands the cedar-(rod), beloved of the great gods.

16. {The tablet of the gods, the liver, a mystery of heaven and underworld;

17. How to observe oil on water, a secret of Anu, Enlil and Ea;

18. ‘That with commentary’; When Anu, Enlil; and how to make mathematical calculations.}

Here we see that the divine knowledge that King Enmeduraki possessed also included a system of mathematical calculations, or what is known today as gematria. This prophesy, concerning the Necronomicon in the biblical book of Revelation, takes place in the 5th chapter, five is a number of DinGir Ishtar. Additionally, there are 435 words in the 5th chapter, or 4 + 3 + 5 =12. 12 is the number of DinGir Nebo, who rules over the art held out by scribes. The fact that twelve is the sacred number of DinGir Nebo also points to the mention of the Necronomicon in the Holy Qu’ran.

Injil is a term that appears in the Holy Qu’ran twelve times. It is a book given to Isa (Jesus) from God. Although the term is used by Arab Christians to refer to the four gospels, most Muslim scholars agree that the Injil is the true Gospel bestowed upon Jesus by God. This true gospel, specifically had a lot to do with the revelations Jesus (Isa) received from God. The term Injil is derived from the Greek, euangelion, which ultimately means “God Spell.” This is quite interesting as Jesus relates to the patriarchic view of the Ishtar mythos, as he was described in the Biblical book of Revelation as being able to open up a seven-sealed book, so too is the Injil said to be a revelation from God to Jesus. The Mad Arab wrote:

And one such demon was raised by that Priest of Jerusalem, ABDUL BEN-MARTU, and was fed extensively on the sheep of the flocks of Palestine, whereupon it grew to frightening proportion and eventually devoured him. But that was madness, for Ben-Martu worshipped the Old Ones, which is unlawful, as it is written.”
