I invite you to share here what are your gnosis and/or conclusions about the masks and origins of these beings!
Here’s some analysis so far:
I’m not sure if Matanbuchus/Mechembuchus/Meterbuchus is an original name, because how could this be an original name if it means “worthless gift”. Sounds like another title, like Belial (without a master/wicked one/worthless one).
Asenath Mason says in her invocations that Belial was created to be an angel and that he was created just after Lucifer, which after encountering him I started to doubt (possibly because of the huge increase in power of that being) but still would like to read what you guys have learned about who Belial is after all!
It’s said that Belial has a mask called Beelzebub (Baal-zebub) and that Belial is also the same as Baal. Some think that Satan is a mask of Belial and on the other topic I’ve just replied to, authors (Baron/Baroness Araignee) say that Belial is the same as Samael They were claiming that Belial told them that he was the oldest demon and the same being as Samael.
Old texts (Bible/Apocryphal) say that Satan and Belial are the same being. He could also be the same as Masterma/Mastema the accuser angel, that later became Satan. Possibly he could also be the God Bel mentioned in the same texts.
We also know that lord Belial is the first gatekeeper of Hell, and that no one enters Hell without first passing by his gate.
Lucifer (Heylel הֵילֵל Shining One, Morning Star, Amaymon)
Michael W. Ford says that Satan is actually Lucifer (Heylel הֵילֵל Shining One, Morning Star/Amaymon), which is also the same as Ahriman, Samael and Set.
At least for Lucifer being Samael, he says that it should be the same because Samael means “the Poison of God”, which also sounds more like a title than a name.
I think it was Enoch Petrucelly that stated in his last book that Lucifer is the emperor of Hell. Apparently EA Koetting claims it’s a being called San’tula (Santola) and VK Jehannum claims that’s a being called Sanatas.
Could Santula, Sanatas and Lucifer be the same being in different masks?
I wondered for long if Satan was just a thoughtform or is it a combination of Lucifer + Belial (metagod)?
Some claim that Satan is an independent being and others claim that it is the same as Ahriman but as mentioned above, at least to author Michael W Ford, Ahriman = Lucifer. I haven’t read Kurtis Joseph’s conclusions about this specific name Ahriman though BUT EA Koetting claims that Belial taught him that Lucifer is not the light bearer, Lucifer is darkness (and isn’t darkness = Ahriman?). “The shining one” shines darkness.
Could the combination of these beings of Daath create a Sphere called Satan? (there’s a chart but I didn’t upload for not getting one more censored post for Balg’s commercial reasons).
PS: Since your personal Hell could be self-imposed by consciousness (guilt and good vs. evil interpreting), couldn’t these beings be masks of the Archons? Not saying this to disrespect these beings that I am so into but just coming to probably the highest mindfuck conclusion ever possible, that would probably be too much for our limited human brains to process
In the book Questing After Visions EA Koetting talks about an angel telling him that demons serve divine purpose (but it was never said in the book which purpose it is).
