King Belial ancient god?

My question is about King Belial…those who work with him do you have any idea which Pagan god he is or at least under what name and where he was worshiped ?

As far as I can tell from a quick search he isn’t associated with any Pagan God.

But most of goetia demons are known as pagan gods how is this possible that a high ranking King like him wasn’t worshiped among mortals ?

I checked the link wow it’s really interesting but is Belial really Lilith/Ishtar ? Ishtar is known as the demon Astaroth and Lilith is Lilith but it was really interesting

@LordVader You have to evoke them for yourself if you want to know for sure. Evoke and ask them.

@LordVader I know. My answer is to ask him yourself.

Closest guess:

They just changed the name so Belial means “without a lord” instead of “lord”. My initial impression is that Belial is both; he has no lord and he is a lord. He is one because he is the other. Although, is that not the case for many masters?

Yeah, that’s not a brush-off - besides I can’t see Belial being a god in the normal sense of having priests and stuff, he seems to loathe and despise that kind of thing.

“Ancient god” only means “known and worshipped” if you believes gods require human energy to function. I think not, based on experience and logic.

@SabahSnoblod based on what you said do you think Belial and Beelzebub might actually be two different aspects of the same entity ? because Beelzebub is known as the gods you mentioned

Probably. Belial-Beelzebub-Ba’al and others are very similar entities so it wouldn’t come to a surprise that they may actually be the same being.

Actually that’s incorrect, Belial’s name truly means “Without A Master” !!!

Some makes the connection between him and Pan, Esus or Cernunnos. Because nature in itself means liberty. And Belial is mostly about liberty. Let’s not forget the Belial is often associated whit the “devil”, this comes exactly from those 3 pagan gods that were mixed up, in a time when the Dark Mother Iisis was worshiped at Notre-Dame in Paris by the druidic sects. Mostly in that time Paris was the prime scene for occultism, from there Eliphas Levi got inspiration into writing “The Doctrine and Ritual of High Magic”.

Admittedly I only perused thru but, Belial can be associated with Erebus from Greek mythos, the Black Man of witch sabbats, Nyarlathotep in Lovecraftian, Choronzon in hermeticism, and lastly really any avatar of destruction, ruin, and subsequential rebirths. Mephiles also has the right of it.

If we go even ancient, Belial was associated also whit Min, the god of fertility in Egypt. The list can go one, and is easily to find out the masks of Belial, if you work whit him more. Some say the Lucifer is the son of Belial, well the name of Lucifer is Helel, well this Helel was “the king of Babylon” - now if we go systematically in history chronology we can find out the real name of this King. -
