Asmodeus
On February 18, 1865 – two months almost to the day before his untimely death, President Abraham Lincoln received a strange letter warning him of his imminent assassination and, in a post-script, sharing a lewd and completely inappropriate joke about farmers’ daughters in Kentucky. The letter was signed Asmodeus, King of Hell, and Commander of the Infernal Legions. He is the King of Demons, the demon of wrath, the demon of anger, the destroyer of worlds, Ashmedai, Asmodée, Sidonay, Asmodevs, the demonic offspring of a succubus and King David, Commander of the 72 Legions of Hell. He is the King of Hell, answering only to Lucifer himself. If he appears to you he will come three times. First he will appear as a handsome man walking with limp. In his second guise he comes with the head of a bull. When he appears the third and final time he will have the head of a furious ram breathing fire. He carries with him at all times a lance and the banner of hell. The letter was deemed a perverse joke and, along with numerous other discarded scraps of paper, was burned in one of the White House fireplaces. The room immediately filled with a rancid, oily smoke. Contemporary reports say that it smelled of rotted fish and camphor. The entire building had to be evacuated and three servants were overcome by the smoke. They died within the next several hours. Fish oil can be extracted from the livers of fish by rapidly heating them to over 400 degrees. Or, in a slower, but more complete method, by preserving the livers until they have fermented and allowing the oils to separate naturally. When the oil is poured over a hot brazier, it will produce the same thick cloud of foul smelling smoke that filled the White House that February afternoon. This is the only way to ward off the demon Asmodeus. Apocryphal Tobit burned fish livers and hearts to drive away Asmodeus, the worst of demons. He fled to Egypt where, for a time, he was bound by the angel, Raphael. This is how Tobit survived in the face of Asmodeus’ assaults. President Lincoln, however, was not so fortunate.

Azazel
The air of the desert is hot and dry, full of grit and sand. It gets into your nose, your teeth, your eyes. Even now, as the sun is melting into the horizon, the desert winds bring dry heat into the camp. Other than the scarlet glow that illuminates the smoke drifting up from Mount Sinai, the desert is dark. It is dark, but it is not silent. Out in the darkness there are wild beasts. Owls, ravens and vultures, hyenas, wildcats, snakes and jackals make the desert a dangerous place to wander. But there is something more. Even with the animals that roam its sands, the desert is a dead place. That is why no one will pitch their tents there. The desert is a dead place – the haunt of demons It is the home of Azazel, who watches over the fallen watchers. Azazel, who corrupted the earth and taught men to make swords and knifes, who showed women how to ornament their bodies with jewelry and mascara. Azazel, who was bound in chains by Raphael and dragged down from heaven. There in the dark of the desert he is chained to the rough and jagged rocks of a precipitous cliff, howling in desperate pain. This is disgrace; this is Azazel, and this is shame, for Abraham’s portion is in heaven and yours is upon the earth. Therefore, the Mighty One, Eternal Ruler of Time and Space, has given you your dwelling upon the earth though you are a liar and a bringer of wrath.

The God of Fortresses Of the King who did according to his will and magnified himself above every petty god and honored the God of Fortresses with much gold and silver. and they shall wear upon their breasts the emblem of their master. And this is his device: a stone tower on bend sinister. He will speak barbarisms and blasphemies. His militant priests and clerical guardsmen will march across the globe on ley line energies. and who regardeth not the gaze and desire of women A mighty fortress on pagan sands physical forces holding spiritual and temporal sway wielding the sword of power flashing this way and that. 16 . He will wear the skulls of his enemies. He shall do just as he will. He will reawaken occulted mysteries long forgotten by his fathers.

The burning on his hands and feet was the result of an intense electrical discharge. but he had no idea what it meant.’ There was something inside him: an idea that needed to be explored. an hypothesis that needed to be tested. Could these things all be related? He could not answer that question and he began to weep. In the third he saw a great tower trembling in the shadow of a giant. has seen him – the shepherd – again. Hallucinations. In the second. This is his sixth vision. But they were in no danger of overheating. That seemed to be the end of the visions. No.

Ibis Who gives the ibis wisdom? or gives the rooster understanding? –Job 38:36 In the spring. In the summer. 20 . he is the physician. a knot of venomous snakes and spines. when the moon is changing. when the moon is fat. The sound of his song creates the four frog ponds. the face that hears. but the Ibis. a lonely mathematician. refuses to let them pass and for this he is venerated there. sacred bird of the Egyptian moon. In the winter. the Ibis stalks the marshlands measuring the earth in one cubit strides. as a scientist. a practitioner of lunar magic. when the moon is obscured by clouds swollen with rain. the winged serpents of Arabia rise in flight.

A thousand glimmering eyes Ten thousand eyes in the night The eyes of the Irin are watching. When transgenic species rise upon the earth they will be observed.Irin “In the vision that came into my mind as I was lying in bed. Observe The eyes of Adonai are ranging about the earth. Observe What has been written will come to pass and what will come to pass will be observed coming down from heaven in tracks of fire When a five legged lamb is born on the White House lawn it will be observed.” Daniel 4: 13 The eyes of the Irin are the eyes of God and the eyes of God are loose upon the earth. Never surrender you must give yourself to the cause and to the victory of history. I saw a holy watcher come down from heaven. When Grigori moves between this world and the next he will be observed. even in the course of study you must not speak their names. Observe Be vigilant. each of them is named and their names are known but you must never say their names especially at night when their powers are reinforced. Observe 21 .

so they did this infrequently and only when they were convinced they would not be noticed. But few would dare use that name in his presence. The Jackals would do this in order prolong the night and to give themselves more time at the hunt. who were both solemn and sage? Or even to the Lions who were kings and princes over most everything else in the First Father’s creation? But the First Father. When he’d howled the moon up over the horizon and sent her safely on her journey across the sky. Tann barked once in excitement before letting it trail off into a muted whine. For the most part Tann and his fellow tribe members had kept their sacred trust and had called up the moon for her nightly course across the sky with the necessary regularity and precision. following the odor of blood. Something wounded. Not when there was… yes… he sniffed again… blood. The calloused pads of his feet kept his motion silent. And. though sometimes he was called ‘Ochim because he was one of the doleful creatures. satisfied and filled. One of the Ibex had come past hours before. they had kept the sacred trust. in his wisdom. Something already dying. The carrion was close. His strong legs carried him quickly over the sand and rocks. a companion of owls. He would sing another song for the moon to guide her towards morning. He could read the scents in the cool nighttime breeze. They squawked angrily at him. 22 . they had not failed the First Father. He would soon be eating meat.Jackals I have become a brother of jackals. Tann set out himself. Later. after he’d eaten his fill. He pushed his snout into the carcass and began tearing out hunks of flesh. And fresh. had given that sacred duty to the Jackals. Tann snapped his jaws the few of the Vulture tribe that were already encroaching on his dinner. His name was Tann. It was an Antelope. And he gave to them. As he ran he had only one thought: meat. Tann loped back towards his cave. A few Hares were nearby but not worth the effort to chase. and them alone. meat and blood. fearful of his teeth. giving her a song filled with bad directions. Why had the duty not been entrusted to ones such as the Owls? Or to the Elephants. But as Tann cut his way across the rocky plain he wasn’t thinking about the moon or her nightly trek across the sky. He ran now. a young one that had fallen off a rocky ledge and snapped its neck. But the Jackals are tricksters and devious too. He did not want to draw others to his kill. Job 30: 29 He yelped up the moon using the ancient calls known only by his tribe. stealthy. to prowl and to hunt. so there had been a number of occasions when they’d used the incantations and songs given to them by the First Father in order to manipulate the moon as she travelled. for the most part. On a few occasions they had sent her off course. It would be hours before he would think of her again. But they knew that the other tribes would complain to the First Father if they were caught misusing the secret moon songs. This was his privilege and his duty – though why the regular calling up of the moon should have been entrusted by the First Father to such a tribe of tricksters and malcontents as the Jackals was never understood by the other tribes. but flapped away. the magic calls necessary to bring up the moon.

I was a scholar then.the “Lucky Star of the King” and “The Swallower. I could read the signs. I remember watching the Magician as he made his way through the Water Carrier with his blue methane clouds meandering past Sadal Melek and Al Bali .

but it was a stable craft. The vessel rocked with his added weight. And when the rain started to fall. He’d come to rest on a small island. King Og began growling and snarling. He shook his fist at the sky and he cursed the lightning. he climbed aboard. Their blows were turned away by the pitch covered wood. He watched as desperate men attacked the ark with pikes and swords attempting to get on board. Day after day he clung to Noah’s ark (though it was difficult to determine days and nights because of the impenetrable cover of storm clouds that covered the sky). hand over hand. He howled with the winds. but Og kept his grip. he punched a hole in the roof of the vessel and grabbed an ox. King Og. watched King Og climbing carefully down the mountain side. King Og made one last valiant march to battle. But he stopped laughing when they pulled the doors shut. The rain continued to fall. he wasn’t immediately concerned. It wasn’t long. The ark was rolled and tossed about on the waves. observing the giant through his spy glass. but that was a flood he would not survive. but the flood. after what must have been weeks. when he’d reached the point in life when he spent most of his days asleep in his famous giant iron framed bed.Og It isn’t discussed very often. enormous really. Noah. their attack was futile and came too late. He ate it raw and bloody and bellowing as he clung to the boat with his other hand. 32 . atop the ark he rode through the angry fury of the storm. So when the waters began to rise. however. He was tall. The plan was that the deluge would kill every living thing on the face of the earth – with the exception of Noah and his family. Noah’s Flood (though that is an altogether inaccurate title) wasn’t entirely successful. Many years later – hundreds of years later – when he was very old and very tired. brave King Og grabbed the stern with his enormous hands and. They too were drowned by the flood waters. squeezing the boat between his thighs to stay in place. before he felt the bump of solid land beneath him. and soon the rising waters lifted the ark. Once. preachers don’t like to talk about it. There. Gigantic King Og watched with bemused indifference as Noah and his boys built their “toy” boat and he laughed as they herded the various animals below deck. He rode out with his generals and his assembled armies to meet the Israelites as they invaded his land.) When the waters reached his knees (and the rest of humanity was either treading water or running for the hills) King Og began to pound on the sides of the ark. well designed to ride out the swelling waves. He could see in the distance that Noah’s floating zoo had also been grounded on one of the island peaks. the waters continued to rise. He was still standing in front of the ark starring up at the skies when the waters were ankle deep (which was waist deep for everyone else. for obvious reasons. what was once a mountain peak. slipped from atop the ark and floated on the waters himself. He watched as mothers struggled to hold their infant children above the rising waters. As it began to float away. but never saw him again after that. exhausted from the ordeal. When he reached in again for more. when King Og was very hungry. Noah and his family beat at his fingers with rods and clubs and he almost lost his balance. But there was one other unexpected survivor: King Og. When the rains finally stopped and the waters began to recede.

Or that when Betelgeux explodes (as it is primed to do) it will be visible on Earth. the bands are loosed. the primordial hunter is about to escape.
