@Baal The Blighted, the Divs, and the Outer Gods in no specific order as far as Pantheons go. Surtr/Sorath definitely does stand out as an individual Spirit. The Lwa possibly from what I hear though I don’t know enough about them.
Personally, I’d consider the Abrahamic Deity to be one of the most powerful entities, I’ve seen the power from which Abrahamic angels can bring to bear, and they gain much of their power from God himself so…
I don’t let mere personal bias prevent me from seeing power that is there.
But that “deity” is unknown to most people who ever lived, and yet angels will be there stabuilising theitr reality and, if called upon, serving them - just as angels serve and assist us on here who hate religion and don;t even believe in that faith, even the smallest bit.
So logic would surely suggest they serve the creation, and not a regional being, a mere tribal god.
There is no truth to their god, or it wouldn’t first have acknowledged other gods, and then slowly attempted to eliminate their knowledge and names.
It’s the godhead within you that they really obey and honour.
My model of what constitutes the creative force is the one explained in the Kybalion (available online, it’s out of copyright).
That automatically rules out the notion of one tribe or belief system having somehow “more” access to the All than another.
You could say this is an argument of personal gnoses, but when people state things as facts, I feel responsibile to challenge them, lest it lead people astray to think there is consensus on the matter.
I’ll offer this to show exactly where I stand on the matter:
Yes, they are the most powerful current guardians of that, bear in mind all exercises that have a form, will be somewhat limiting insofar as to take a form is a limitation - to BE darkness, is to not BE light, and so on.
And that is from which the point of what it is that I speak. Hermeticism’s ultimate end goal is to become one with the power of creation, and within many hermetic sects, God and creation are one in the same. Kabbala basically says the same thing if you delve into it with any serious attempt to understand.
And as I would state, Kabbalah, Hermeticism, and Abrahamic faith are so tightly woven, that to deny one from the others is fallacious in it’s attempts.
