Baptism – A Greek word (βάπτισμα) that means immersion. Two elements baptize, light and water, and light is the chrism. In the Three Forms of First Thought and the Secret Book of John, the baptism involved a prayer to the names Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`, the Living Water. On completion of the baptism, the baptized having now become light acknowledges the name of the Self-Generated One is now upon him or her. In the codices 'baptism' is one of the five seals together with 'chrism', 'eucharist', 'redemption', and 'Bridal-Chamber'. These events should not materialize ("rituals") by any individual(s) on earth as that is a common errant practice by nonbelievers. The baptism is water - water of watery light - material nephesh (psychics).


In the Gospel of Phillip, ‘chrism’ is superior to ‘baptism’. Two elements baptize, light and water, and light is the chrism. The anointing, thanksgiving (the Good Saying) [eucharist], redemption, and bridal chamber are the 'five seals' or five trees recorded in codices. In the Three Forms of First Thought and the Secret Book of John, the baptism may have involved a prayer to the names Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`, the Living Water. On completion of the baptism, the baptized having now become light acknowledges the name of the Self-Generated One is now upon him or her.

Barbelo – Coptic word borrowing from the Hebrew language which scholars mistranslated to mean "god in four letters"– that is, Self-generated from the tetragrammaton, YHWH.

Beast – In the Greek languages there are several words with different meanings which were all translated as "beast" by the scholars when translating the codices. The reader would have to examine the context to determine which of these meanings may have been used originally. The most common type of beast is the feral wild beast, and this meaning is applied to the adversary ("satan"), and his demons.  Another kind of 'beast' is "the beasts of burden" used for labor, applied to carnal breeding people. It appears that some scholars sympathetic to the 'accuser' did not want to use descriptive terms like feral or wild on their favored demonic characters, but in their omitting those, these distinctions are lost.  In the codices, the meaning of the beast is the instructor.

Beget – Generate, give birth, engender, create.

Bitter – A state of ignorance in the material beings "lower aeons", when there is no vision for the invisible things of the eternal beings "upper aeons".

Blind –  A negative adjective, relating to desire, bodily passion, opposite of sweet and fragrance.

(dirt) Body –   The dirt body is a vessel, created by the archons, to imprison spirits in the matter of the material beings "lower aeons". The body was acquired when the spirit entered this world at birth, and it will be removed when it departs after death. While in this corruptible vessel, the spirit risks contaminating itself through bodily temptation and becoming trapped by the archons in the lower aeons.

Bonds –  All that restrain spirits from returning to the dimension of Light.  Also called ‘chains’, ‘bars’, ‘walls’, ‘secure gates. The bonds of the lower beings are secured in forgetfulness, oblivion, ignorance, and time. 

Book of the Living –The word book is Old English boc, writing, written document," as in a living Scroll who is the Existing One, in which the names of the elect are inscribed. Yâhuwshúa`is written within them and their names are visible within Him. He is the Scroll of those chosen for eternal life.

Bridal of the Marriage Chamber - The Bridal-Chamber is pure of Purest places - "The Holy of the Holies is the bridal chamber." (scroll of Phillip) where the Bride and Bridegroom come together with the nephesh ("soul"), as One through the acquisition of the Garment of Light. The nephesh voluntarily takes a vow of abstinence from the sexual rubbing designed by archons to keep nepheshes enslaved. 

We have co-written, with our sister site, an in-depth study about the marriage chamber, here and to learn more about the role of those who guard the marriage chamber read here.

Call, The – The call to awaken addresses a prototypal sleeper–any person who may awaken to knowledge and salvation. The call also refers to [Yâhuwshúa`] "word" or "logos"–i.e., the garment of the Savior said to be "the voice of the immeasurable thought" (Paraphrase of Shem). "The Mindless person hears 'the call'  but is ignorant of the place to which he or she has been called." Authoritative Discourse

The called (or calling) occupies the place of those who rejoice at the Bridal Chamber, who are happy on account of the union of the Bridegroom and the Bride. This the station that the call will have is the material cosmos ("aeon" )of the images in the place where the Word [Yâhuwshúa` ] has yet been united with the Fullness [pleroma]." The Tripartite Tractate

Cave – In The Secret Book of John, The material cosmos "world" the lower demons, ignorance, and the body are a prison, tomb, or cave of the nephesh "soul." “Woe to you, captives, for you are bound in caverns!” Book of Thomas, the Contender

Chosen – In The Dialogue of the Savior, The chosen within the material cosmos, due to their immortal nature (The Revelation of Peter), have their partners (syzygoi) in the dimension of Light. It is their destiny through generations (from nativity to nativity) to recover their original Oneness (the pairing) and not perish or taste death. Also, see elect.

Chrism – In the codex Gospel of Phillip, ‘chrism’ is superior to ‘baptism’. In codices, we often find this word as one of the five seals', and chrism occurs when the Light-water descends or pours over the repentant néphesh to achieve 'the redemption'. The ‘chrism’ (anointing), 'eucharist' [thanksgiving/the Good Saying], 'redemption', and 'bridal chamber' are the 'five seals' (or five trees) recorded in codices. The anointing is white fire – the light of watery light- spiritual nephesh (pneumatics). It is vital to notice that the 'five seals' are events happening to the chosen believer as Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` is the One Who works out the deliverance of His children.  The accuser makes fake imitation "mock-ups" in the material form, on earth, of the realm of Light's spiritual realities. These events should not materialize ("rituals") by any individual(s) on earth as that is a common errant practice by nonbelievers.

Consent –Interchangeably used as 'reflect', 'approve', and 'agree' with foreseeable knowledge and good outcome.


Consort – - Also called, complement, partner, pair, counter-image, reflection. Like the One, all beings in the dimension of Light are androgynous, which is to say, eternal beings that possess the male spirit and the female nephesh thus making them androgynous.  This pairing is also called syzygy (singular), which translates as consort, complement, partner, pair, counter-images, and reflections (as brother and sister) of the Father.
“It is also said that she (Sophia) resembles her brother and her consort.” (Eugnostos the Blessed). Consorts are like ‘the bride and bridegroom’ that come together in the Bridal Chamber.  “From heaven, the father sent her (the nephesh) her man, who is her brother, the firstborn. Then the bridegroom came down to the bride.” (Exegesis on the Soul 132:7)  

Crown – In this material cosmos, we are conditioned to believe that a crown is a material headgear worn by monarchs and that it represents royalty, power, and even immortality; however, this material crown by itself holds no power with zero abilities. In the dimension of Light and Truth, we are given an ideal definition of a crown. 


The Father’s crown is the eternal ones ("aeons") that surround Him which are filled with Light. “This is the Father of the All turn into One. This is He upon whose head the eternal ones are a crown, casting forth rays.” Untitled Text in the Bruce Codex 


The Father's crown gives light and is a sign of unity. Those below who are in the material body pray to ‘receive the Crown’: “And there is a crown upon the indivisible One in which is every species of life... This is the crown which the Father of the All [turn into One] gave to the indivisible One..."  "And after the invisible one, all the eternal ones "aeons" will receive their crowns from it and hasten forth with the indivisible One. And the All [turn into One] will receive their completion through the imperishable one. And for this reason, do those who have received [material] bodies pray, wishing to leave their [material] bodies behind, and to receive the crown which is laid up for them in the imperishable [dimension of Light] aeon.” (Untitled Text in the Bruce Codex) The crown bestowed by the Father upon the All [turn into One] contains the names of the All [turn into One]: “the Father of the All [turn into One], the indescribable One, sent a Crown in which is the name of the All [turn into One] , whether endless, or unutterable, or incomprehensible, or imperishable, or unknowable, or still, or all-powered, or indivisible." Untitled Text in the Bruce Codex

The Father's crown is made up of eternal Ones, which includes the elect as members of the Crown. The crown is bestowed upon those below (material cosmos or dimension of darkness) who come to exist within the dimension of Light. The crowning occurs during the Five Seals.

Deficiency –  The lack of Fullness that results from ignorance of the Father is how one falls to material chaos. The deficiency is the opposite of the Fullness "pleroma": “The disciples said to him, ‘What is the Fullness, and what is the Deficiency?’ He said to them, ‘You are from the Fullness, and you dwell in the place where the deficiency is (i.e. the material cosmos or dimension of darkness).’” Dialogue of the Savior 139:13 After the Resurrection: “the light flows down upon the darkness, swallowing it up; and the Fullness fills up the deficiency.” Treatise on Resurrection  During the ‘consummation (end of the material cosmos): “And the deficiency will be plucked out by the root (and thrown) down into the darkness. And the Light(s) will withdraw up to its root.” On the Origin of the World
The material beings ("lower aeons") are called the deficiency because they lack the eternal ones'
 (upper aeons’) light and fullness. Being deficient, they are dark, empty, and an abyss: “Therefore they (the rulers/archons) fell down to the pit of ignorance which is called ‘the outer darkness’ and ‘chaos’ and ‘hades’ (hell or sh'owl) and ‘the abyss.’” Tripartite Tractate
Being deficient, the lower beings are shadows lacking light: “Now the eternal realm (aeon) of truth has no shadow outside it, for the limitless light is everywhere within it. But its exterior is shadow, which has been called by the name 'darkness'” Origin of the World
Finally, the deficiency even lacks existence: “And then the existent separated itself from the non-existent. And the non-existent is the evil which has manifested in matter (world). And the enveloping power separated those that exist from those that do not exist. And it called the existent "eternal", and it called the non-existent "matter". And in the middle, it separated those that exist from those that do not exist, and it placed veils between them.” Untitled Text in the Bruce Codex

Desire – In The Secret of Book of John the source of demons that are in the entire body are divided into four demons: heat, cold, wetness, and dryness, and their mother is matter. From the four demons have come these passions:

grief > jealousy, envy, pain, trouble, distress, hardheartedness, anxiety, sorrow, and others

pleasure> abundance of evil, vain conceit, and the like

desire> anger, wrath, bitterness, intense lust, greed, drunkenness, fire (of satan), and the like

fear> terror, servility, anguish, and shame

Disciple –  mathētḗs Greek Strong's #3101 (from math-, the "mental effort needed to think something through") – properly, a learner; an apprentice and follower of Yâhuwshúa` who learns His teachings, and the lifestyle required to teach the Glad Tidings of Truth.

Double-mindedness – A (type b & c ) person from the middle, whose nephesh is composed of Wisdom or Wisdom and satan. A double-minded person with a conflicting spirit. In the 'Gospel of Truth'  - They are "ignorant of the Father; He is the One whom they did not see. Since there had been fear and confusion and a lack of confidence and double-mindedness and division, there were many illusions that were conceived by them,  as well as empty ignorance—as if they were fast asleep and found themselves a prey to troubled dreams." (-Authoritative Teaching and Silvanus)

Drunk In the codices, to be "drunk" is to have life in the lower regions as oppose to 'existing' in the dimensions of Light. Drunkenness, desire, deception, forgetfulness, sleep and bitterness are all ignorance as oppose to sobriety.

To Dye –In the codices, this refers to purify the néphesh with living water also called 'the immersion' which only Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` can perform and no one can undo this work.(-The Gospel of Phillip)

Echamoth – A Syriac penname for Wisdom 'Sophia' which derived from "Hokhmah" (See Achamoth)

Echmoth –In The Gospel of Phillip, echmoth means 'wisdom of death,' who is the one who knows death, which is called little wisdom.

The Elect–  mathētḗs Greek Strong's #3101 (from math-, the "mental effort needed to think something through") – properly, a learner; an apprentice and follower of Yâhuwshúa` who learns His teachings, and the lifestyle required to teach the Glad Tidings of Truth.

End of time – A (type b & c ) person from the middle, whose nephesh is composed of Wisdom or Wisdom and satan. A double-minded person with a conflicting spirit. In the 'Gospel of Truth'  - They are "ignorant of the Father; He is the One whom they did not see. Since there had been fear and confusion and a lack of confidence and double-mindedness and division, there were many illusions that were conceived by them,  as well as empty ignorance—as if they were fast asleep and found themselves a prey to troubled dreams." (-Authoritative Teaching and Silvanus)

Drunk In the codices, to be "drunk" is to have life in the lower regions as oppose to 'existing' in the dimensions of Light. Drunkenness, desire, deception, forgetfulness, sleep and bitterness are all ignorance as oppose to sobriety.

To Dye –In the codices, this refers to purify the néphesh with living water also called 'the immersion' which only Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` can perform and no one can undo this work.(-The Gospel of Phillip)

A – the letter 'A' in the Hebrew alphabet and the numeral one, in the Hebrew number system 'A' represents the 'First'. This is the same 'First' mentioned in "Genesis" 1:1 and also One being the Resurrection. Yâhuwshúa` when He was at the physical age of five in "The Infancy Gospel of Thomas" He refused any further teaching from Jewish teachers when they proved unable to explain the higher meaning of this letter.

Abel – abel is a poor production of the original word 'hevel' - the son of dirt man (adam). In the "Secret Book of John" "hevel" is also the pen name of a demon. It is important to note that

'hevel' in Hebrew means vanity.

Aberamenthō In the Second Book of the Savior "Pistis Sophia" 'aberamenthō' is a Coptic name-substitute for Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`.

Abrasax - Greek Αβραξας - in demonology abrasax refers to a title for a demon.


Achamoth chokmâh   (וְחַוָּ֥ה א ISO 259 ḥoḵmah or khok-maw') is the Ivríyth ("Biblical Hebrew") word rendered as "wisdom" in English bible versions (LXX σοφία sophia is Greek) - The codices describe an upper and lower Sophia.  The Lower Sophia is called Achamoth.  According to "The First Apocalypse of James", Achamoth’s mother is Sophia: “Sophia (...) is the mother of Achamoth.” ("First Apocalypse of James") See Sophia.

Adam  â´thâm in Ivríyth (אָדָ֥ם) "Hebrew" ἄδαμος Greek “dirt-man”. There is much disparity and debate among scholars over the significance of the word ‘adam’ because its root word indicates this word is not a proper noun/name as it was first used in 1 Moshéh ("Genesis") as a descriptive adjective to mean ‘dirt-man’.  In Ivríyth (“Hebrew”)-noun, ’â ´thâ m  is widely used throughout pre-Advent scriptures to mean both male and female beings or mankind ("human being").  Etymology of the word ‘a-dam m אדם ‘dm  most directly in Ivríyth language is rooted in the meaning ‘to produce’ or ‘begin to produce’ from where adam comes from, which denotes ‘product’ or ‘likeness’ from soil the same root that covers redness.   In properly translated scriptures we find that the first created dirt-man was originally referred as ‘ha-a-dam’ which renders 'the dirt-man' in the English language.


Most of the establishment is unaware of this and capitalizes it as though it were a proper name, but knowing more history from scriptures, we do not capitalize this generic term, ’â´thâm, which relates to the redness of the dirt used by the adversary.  Note also that the masculine noun דם (dam) means blood ('redness') and codices refer to the Savior as the "Enlightened Person of Blood'.


The backstory: in god-‘ariel’s material sub-creation: he and his collaborators managed to form an image out of dirt intending to give it life.  They imprisoned the lights they stole, to have authority over the lights and to control them by riding them; but the adversary was tricked into exhausting his only breath of Life into it, and the dirt-man became superior to the adversary and his collaborators.  So the adversary, in his envy, decided to make them fall, exploiting their ignorance, by convincing the dirt-man and his female complementary being, causing-life (chauwâ´h) [usually distorted to “Eve”] – through his serpent – of the Lie: that the name which opens our eyes (vision-sources) is “Yehuwthâ´h” [usually distorted to “Judah”, “Judas”, “Jew”, “Judea”], when in reality, that name is Yâhuwshúa`, the Oath of the Word of Yâ-hwéh.

Adamas â´thâmah in Ivríyth ("Hebrew") אדמה Ancient Greek - ἀδάμας – the word 'adamah' is of Semitic roots translatable as hard "ground or earth" in the codices when referred to the Savior it is used as 'Incorruptible" or 'Perfect (dirt) Man'.  The second declension in Greek for adamas is a valuable stone, and the third declension is 'hardest metal' diamond or probably steel ("Man of Steel" the accuser's word-play in "superman" for himself).  Keep in mind that Yâhuwshúa` is the Rock not forged by hands.

Adultery – In the codices "The Gospel of Philip", "Exegesis of the Soul", "The Paraphrase of Shem",  "The Testimony of Truth", and the “Gospel of Mary”, tells us that alienation from Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` is ‘adultery’ and it also implies that improper attachment to the dirt-body is also “adultery”.   Man make “sin”, our Savior says, when we turn away from Him and are overcome by ignorance and erroneous passions.  Inflaming the flesh is also spiritual adultery against the Marriage Chamber.  The first passion to come out of the water (“Jordan”) is ‘adultery’ because it was the “son” of the serpent.  (“The Gospel of Phillip”).  Intercourse or rubbing between those unlike each other is adultery.  The Savior points out that there is no such thing as ‘error’ alone “you yourselves are what produces sin when you act in accordance with the nature of adultery, which is called error. 


Adamantine land in the codices adamantine land is not only steel-like or diamond-like in its heavenly character; it also may derive from the realm of heavenly adamas.

Aeon – αἰών aión - Greek Strong's #165 depending on the context, this term lends itself to several meanings: "eternal dimension", "immeasurable period of time"  (to not be confused with father-time, satan) 'age' (n) and eternal One or eternal ones (adj) as we see used in Gnostic scriptures [The Tripartite Tractate, The Three Steles of Seth, and The Apocalypse of Peter] for aeons are beings that are emanated, often in pairs, or syzygies from the Father of the All.  The Ivríyth ("Hebrew") equivalent is #5769 ` עוֹלָם `owlam, regrettably certain scriptures translations frequently mistranslate aión as "world" "ever" or "eternity".  Many times "for ever" or "for eternity" should be translated "for the age".

Alien – (adj) c. 1300, "strange, foreign," from Old French alien "strange, foreign;" as a noun, "an alien, stranger, foreigner," from Latin alienus "of or belonging to another, not one's own, foreign, strange," (noun) "foreigner, a citizen of a foreign land," early 14c. - A stranger is not necessarily a foreigner, although a foreigner is highly likely to be a stranger.   The codices state that an 'alien' is a non-resident to the material cosmos of satan and are temporarily outside the dimension of Light.

(the) All –  in the Gnostic writings, the Coptic word Ptēr  f, which scholars frequently (mis)translate as "everything" or "the universe," takes on a special meaning in the codices as a two-letter word: the All.  The All refers to the entirety of the dimension of the Light.  The All is a complete number of emanations who came from the First, the Father.  The word "universe" is coded as the All because "universe" emerged from a Latin term meaning All turn into One.  Whenever we read that 'First Thought' dwells within the All, in particular, it refers to the 'Elect.'  Because those beings outside of the Father, in the lower regions, return to non-existence (to their source, satan).   The Father waits for His complete perfect number to come to exist (life) again, in the lowest regions ('earth').  The All are contained within the Father -“He is an incomprehensible One, but it is He who comprehends the All.  He receives them to Himself.  And nothing exists outside of Him.  But the All exist within Him.  And He is a boundary to the All, as He encloses All, and they are All within Him. It is He who is Father of the eternal ones ('aeons'), existing before them All.  There is no place outside of Him.” (Text in the Bruce Codex).  “It is through Me alone (Protennoia) that the All stands firm.  I am the Womb that gives shape to the All by giving birth to the Light that shines in splendor.” (Trimorphic Protennoia).  Therefore, the teaching that "All," including beasts, goats, demons, etc., who hate Him and are outside the Father of Light, would also be saved by Him as mistranslated "1 Timothy 2:3-14" states, is entirely incorrect.   


Amen ‘âmën in Ivríyth ("Hebrew") Strong's H543  אָמֵן Greek Strong's# 281 ἀμήν from the root word Strong's H539 to mean: belief, assurance, faithful, sure, established, trust, verified, stedfast, continuance, and father.  Our Father, Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa,` is the Surety.  He is the Established One whom satan tries to usurp, even to this day.  Many have stumbled on this word ‘âmën which was personified by Egyptian deities in subterfuge to cause many to worship them.  Such are the names of Pharaohs Amenhotep, Tutankhamen who spoke Middle Egyptian dialect; from which the modern Coptic language is derived, still spoken by Copts (Egyptian Christians) who live in desolate neglected villages in Egypt and facing a daily surge in sectarian attacks, with increased instances of violence and threats from Muslim neighbors.   Copts' language is the latest stage of the ancient Egyptian language, the ancestor of the current Coptic alphabet being the Egyptian hieroglyphs.  However, Paleo-Hebrew is much older than Egyptian, review this chart here.  Some skeptics allege that the Hebrew customs to use 'amen' at the end of the prayer arose from these or other pagan sources; this is not so because the worship of Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa` and the Hebrew early alphabet preceded every other language and ethnic group on earth.  The people of Egypt who worship sun-deities (satan) were the sons of Ham (Ham was a son of Noach) and from creation, to Noach everyone spoke Hebrew and worshiped Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`.  Keep in mind that Ham -> fathered Kuwsh who fathered -> Nimrod who built the tower of Bavel and established sodom and amorah.


Androgynous androgynous – the “androgyne” union repairs the damage of the separation of male and female, which occurred when the female element fell into matter, according to the Second Book of the Savior “Pistis Sophia”.  This separation led to death.  When causing life (“eve”) and dirt-man (“adam”) were created to fall by the serpent, separated into two different beings, they fell into ignorance and death.  All beings in the upper aeons (eternal beings) are androgynous envoys (“angels”), both containing the Father and the Mother, except Achamoth (death), who is female from a female: “Achamoth (…) is female from a female.” (First Revelation of Yaaqóv)


Their Division:
In the Apocalypse of Adam, dirt-man ("adam") explains to his son seth that he and his consort resembled the envoys (i.e. that they both contained the Father and Mother) but that the adversary ‘divided them in wrath’, making them two separate beings (male and female).  The One or ‘Parent’ is both Mother and Father.  First Thought: “I am androgynous. I am Mother (and) I am Father, since I (am)  joined with myself.  I am paired with those who love me, and it is through me alone that the All stands firm.  I am the Womb that gives shape to the All by giving birth to the Light that shines in splendor.” (Trimorphic Protennoia)


Angel(s) - The term "angel" is an inaccurate transliteration of the Greek term aggelos, a Greek translation for the `Ivríyth ("Hebrew") term מַלאָ֥ך   mal’â´kh, which means extensions or reflection of the One, Yâhuwshúa`, as a representative or messenger of His on earth.  In our translation, we considered the term "envoy" to best incorporate these concepts.  We learn from the Gnostic codices that there exists extensions of Yâhuwshúa` (from the highest heavens), here on earth paired with their envoys and therefore are androgynous beings since the envoy is male and the nephesh is female.  There are also extensions of satan misidentified in the codices as “envoys” but are in fact demons, since these emanated out of the lowest region. 

Animal(s) – here we come across a word with a preferential translation according to the interpreter’s (mis) understanding.  Please review Strong’s reference for ‘animal’ and ‘soul’ here.  Etymology (early 14c., ) tells us this refers to "any sentient living creature" (including dirt-man), from Latin animale "living being, being which breathes," noun use of neuter of animalis (adj.) "animate, living; of the air," from anima "breath, soul; a current of air" (from PIE root *ane- "to breathe;" compare deer).”  The word “animal” is a rare word in English before c. 1600, and not found in the first English translation of the Bible (KJV 1611 Edition, William Tyndale).  The Latin word ‘anima’ meaning “breath, soul” that gave us “animal” has given us other words. The English adjective animate meaning “alive” comes from the Latin verb animare, meaning “to give life to,” which in turn came from anima (animal).  


The gnostic codices tell us that a dirt-man contains an animal “nephesh” and that dogs, cats and other lower species are a “nephesh”- animal.   In general, all beings belonging to the lower regions are animals, this includes all pets and shadows (those in uninhabited dirt bodies).  The archons (greys/demons) who are the makers of the material world also have the form of animals - Apocryphon of John & Interpretation of Knowledge.  The remainder of the non-chosen are the unredeemed, or those of the material race, who are called ‘beasts’ worship animals.  Gospel of Philip & Authoritative Teaching.   

Anoint (n)ἀλείφω aleíphō G#218 Materially, to anoint in a s to pour or smear with perfumed oil, milk, water, or other substances, a process employed ritually by many religions.  The 'anointing' can also be seen as a spiritual mode of ridding persons and things of dangerous influences, as of demons believed to be or to cause disease.  Unction is another term for anointing.  The word is known in English since c. 1303, deriving from Old French enoint "smeared on", pp. of enoindre "smear on", itself from Latin inunguere, from in- "on" + unguere "to smear." Originally 'anoint' only referred to grease or oil smeared on for medicinal purposes and Christians were first known as the "greased-ones".  Yâhuwshúa`, made use of material allegories to explain spiritual meanings because His anointing was not of this material world but from the dimension of Light consisting of living water or light-water from above, which had come down from the Father of the Light of highest regions in a form of a winged-creature ("dove").  There is fire within the watery substance which anointed Yâhuwshúa`and rested within Him as a Garment.  It is written, whoever is anointed has everything: Resurrection, light cross Pure Spirit. The Father gives all of this to a person in a Bridal-Chamber.

During Yâhuwshúa`'s ministry, the Yahuwdiym ("jews") used the term Moshiach ("anointed") to refer to our expected Deliverer. The Post-advent scriptures state that the long-awaited Anointed One had come and described Him as "Christ" in MattithYâ´huw.

The Hellenist meaning of “anoint” is made up of two words: chrio which means “to smear or rub oil”, and aleipho, which means “to anoint" (a process of leaving the rub). In the codices, Yâhuwshúa` raises and seals the person 'nephesh' in luminous water with five seals

Anthropos – the Greek term, is used to translate `Ivríyth (Hebrew) ’âthâ´m, meaning “dirt-man” whereas Greek aner is used to translate `Ivríyth (Hebrew) ’iysh “existent-man”.  Where one finds anthropos in the place of ’iysh are where it formerly said ’âthâ´m.   Because of those alterations, lexicon definitions of anthropos became muddled.

The term ’âthâ´m is not a proper name of one person and should be reckoned as a common noun, not as a proper noun.  Therefore, we can translate it and speak of it and anthropos as a “dirt-man”.  Remembering that everything made in this material cosmos is a material attempt to represent some higher spiritual truth, the dirt-man is no exception.  The Image being called a dirt-man was shown from heaven to everything, being in extreme Light, announcing His Oath, His name as well as saying this is the dirt-Man, and all the Ones of the heavens rejoiced.  As for His name, being Yâhuwshúa`, that fact was gathered back up and removed from awareness. [Chanówkh 68: 19- 69: 2] This dirt-Man was made of the Land (earth, dirt) of the heavens, and was the Manifestation of Him, though not in His original form. 

                                                                                            “And a voice came forth from the exalted aeon-heaven: ‘The Man exists and the son of Man."  (Apocryphon of John)

Then down within the material cosmos, the forces of darkness manufactured their own imitation, a material dirt figurine image, which they designed as a vehicle for them to mount over a néphesh they buried into it.  Their version had no Light, so the spawn of shame (yaldabaoth) was led to impulsively blurt out in anger the residual nonrenewable Light he did have from his Fatherless procreation, into the Lifeless figurine, to make manifest the One inside the dirt-man, an emanation of the Father of Lights, Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`.  But that one lost its bright nature with the fall caused by the envious darkness.


Remember the eternal works of the One of the heavens get imitated by shadows in the material cosmos.  The Living dirt-man of the heavens is made by Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`.  This eternal work of Yâ-hwéh is what the following verse speaks of:

             “Now the first Adam, (Adam) of Light, is spirit-endowed and appeared on the first day. The second adam is soul-endowed 

       and appeared on the sixth day (...). The third Adam is a creature of the earth (choikos), that is, the man of the law, and he appeared

                                                                                                                                                       on the eighth day.(Origin of the World 117:28)

The First Foremost dirt-Man (anthropos/’âthâ´m) seen in the heavens was the First of three times the bright Light Living dirt-Man manifests during the time-period granted for the material chaos-cosmos to occur, within the confines of the timeless dimension of Light.  The First occurred during its first thousand-year Day, as described above.  Within a Matrix of His Own Spirit, this Anthropos is called Pneumatic.

The Second bright Light Living dirt-Man (anthropos/’âthâ´m) manifests on the first day of the year 6001, the sixth Great Day, at the seventh (last) trumpet Resurrection, where Yâhuwshúa`’s ones of Yisrâ’ë´l and middle Yisrâ’ë´l stands (anastasis), from out of the dead ones, through Him.  Having originally received Him through insufflation, this Anthropos is called Psychic.

The Third dirt-Man manifests at the beginning of the New Heavens and New Earth, on the eighth Great Day, 8001.  This is outside Yisrâ’ë´l, and they are assessed by their works at the Great White Throne, being works of the two commandments of the great One within the Head, Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`, making them an anthropos of the law, this law of Yâ-hwéh, not that of the adversary.  These are the last sheep being separated from the goats.

The three imitation material dirt-men manufactured by the forces of darkness in this material creation had to be made within the constraints of the time ceded for their occupation, so they made their figurines to try to match this scripture, materially.  The First was given by the spirit, so to try to make the Second, on the 6th 24-hour circuit of the orb, they tried to make their dirt-figurine and trap the Light blowing into it.  But Wisdom had wandered because she had fallen, and was seen.  Then, when Wisdom left the enlightened figurine material dirt-man, the archons could not trap Her so doing a botched alien surgery to try to excise Wisdom from the One inside the material dirt-man’s body, they also had made a dirt-female figurine to put Her into it, with its appearance based on how they saw Wisdom.  Not blowing into it, it was a “creature of the earth”, and it did trap Wisdom for the moment, though Wisdom departed that dirt-female prior to the fall.  But because of the material shadow imitation third dirt-person being female, misled theologists became misogynistic, believing the material imitations to be the works of Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`.


                                                         “The rulers laid plans and said, ‘Come, let us create a man that will be soil from the earth.’

                                                                                They modeled their creature as one wholly of the earth.” (Hypostasis of the Archons 87:2 


  “And they took counsel with the whole array of archons and angels. They took fire and earth and water and mixed them together with the four fiery winds.                                                 And they wrought them together and caused a great disturbance. And they brought him (Adam) into the shadow of  death (...) and he became a mortal man.” (Apocryphon of John 20:33)

This dirt-female body they made to capture Wisdom, they failed to activate to Light with all their material resources, so they worked them together to do their botched surgery removing the supporting side Substance from the One within the dirt-man, and in so doing, spilled His blood-equivalent on this waiting dirt-body, in the “shadow of death” and the earth, bringing it to Life.  Yâ-hwéh did restore to Life and fill in the gap, but this is called the “great disturbance” here.  This is the ‘sprinkling of blood’ material symbolism seen memorialized in the laws of the adversary.


The three kinds of manifested Anthropos of Light of the eternal kind, the spiritual, the insufflated, and the materialized, though distantly foreshadowed by the archons’ miscreations, are not determined by the archons’ two dirt-body creations.

Apocalypse – from Greek apokalupsis ἀποκάλυψις, to 'disclose', ‘uncover, reveal’, from apo- ‘un-’ + kalýptein "to cover, protect, conceal,".   In the codices, whenever we read codices titled 'Apocalypse of ___', these are considered open teaching - revealed teaching for the 'end of time'.

Apocryphon – From Late Latin apocryphus (“secret, not approved for public reading”), from Ancient Greek ἀπόκρυφος (apókruphos, “hidden, obscure”, thus “(writings) of unknown authorship”), from ἀπό (apó, “from”) + κρύπτω (krúptō, “I hide”).  In the codices, several books are titled 'Apocryphon of ____' which are secret teachings imparted to His believers.

Archons – From Greek Strong's #758 archón ἄρχων, οντος, ὁ (ar'-khone) first introduced in the translations of Paulus' writings, to mean demonic inter-dimensional crafty-beings (aka "ufos" & "aliens"), who have dominion over the atmosphere both below and above the earth.  These archons are under the authority of the lord of flying things, the prince of the power of the air. The enemy, ba'al is identified as satan by Yâhuwshúa` “Jesus” Himself, (Matt.10:25) (Mark. 3:22) (Luke 11:15). Paulus tells us that we wrestle not with beings of flesh and blood, but with archons “principalities” and powers, in high places, "in the heavens" literally the skies - "in the aerial regions" (Eph.6:12.) Hence the enemy is called "the prince of the power of the air" also "the prince of the aerial host" (Eph.2:). In the gnostic scriptures, the archons are also referred to as the rulers of the lower regions (eons).

In the codices, archons are also known as detainers, judges, pitiless ones, corpse-eaters, adulterers, man-eaters, governors, authorities, guards, gatekeepers, robbers, and toll collectors.

In general, archons do not possess a name since they are not existing ones for the nature of matter is resolved into the roots of its nature alone.


The archons have nephesh “soul” but no spirit: “they could not lay hold of that Image, which had appeared to them in the waters, because of their weakness - since beings that merely possess a soul cannot lay hold of those that which possess a Spirit” (Hypostasis of the Archons).  The archons’ nephesh is made out of the fire of yaldabaoth.  The time of the archons is limited, Yahuwshua said “Truly I say to you, for all of them the stars bring matters to completion. When saklas (master archon) completes the span of time assigned for him...” (Gospel of Judas 54). The end of the archons will be indicated with visible movements “signs” in the world around us: “Then, when the great Authorities knew that the time of fulfillment had appeared - just as in the pangs of the parturient it (moment) has drawn near, so also had the destruction approached - altogether the elements trembled, and the foundations of the underworld and the ceilings of Chaos shook, and a great fire shone within their midst, and the rocks and the earth were shaken like a reed shaken by the wind.” (Trimorphic Prontennoia 43:4)

Since they have no Fullness, they are deficient. Though they have motion at the present, they will return to their state of motionless (nonexistence): “their end will be like their beginning: from that which did not exist (they are) to return once again to that which will not be.” (Tripartite Tractate). They are likenesses, copies, imitations, shadows, phantasms and distorted reflections of the dimension of Light: “[the archons] are their [the fullness] likenesses, copies, shadows, and phantasms, lacking reason and the light (...). In the manner of a reflection are they beautiful? For the face of the copy normally takes its beauty from that of which it is a copy.” (Tripartite Tractate)


Our Mother Wisdom assists in the destruction of the archons, the archons destroy one another.  Codices indicate that yaltabaoth destroys them as well and then turns against himself: “And a great clap of thunder will come out of a great force that is above all the forces of chaos, where the firmament of the woman (Wisdom) is situated. Having created the first product, she (sophia) will put away the wise fire of intelligence and clothe herself with witless wrath. Then she will pursue the gods of chaos, whom she created along with the prime parent (yaltabaoth). She will cast them down into the abyss. They will be obliterated because of their wickedness. For they will come to be like volcanoes and consume one another until they perish at the hand of the prime parent (yaldabaoth). When he has destroyed them, he will turn against himself and destroy himself until he ceases to exist.” (On the Origin of the World 126:13)


Codices tell us that after these things more “cosmic” signs appear: “Then the sun will become dark, and the moon will cause its light to cease. The stars of the sky will cancel their circuits.” (On the Origin of the World 126:10).  The lower regions “the material universe” will collapse, and the ‘luminous fire’ which created the archons will also destroy them: “And their heavens will fall one upon the next and their forces will be consumed by fire. Their eternal realms, too, will be overturned.” (On the Origin of the World).   Codices tell us that this was His plan all along – the consummation. “(This...) has been apparent from creation down to the consummation of the age.” (Origin of the World)

Ariel – ’ariy’ë´l [ariēl] commonly found as “Ariel” – should be translated “demon-lion,” and refers to the adversary (“sâţâ´n”). Since the adversary has no recognized name, all its epithets or aliases are not proper nouns and do not merit capitalization, including this one.


’ariy’ë´l (Strong’s Hebrew #0739) is mentioned in these scriptures: the Second Book of the Savior "Pistis Sophia [James Horner A Literal Translation]," The Secret Book of Yâhuwchânâ’n, and On the Origin of the World, and Chanówkh (“Enoch”) as well as in the canonical books in Ezra 8: 16, and Yshá`Yâhuw 29: 1-7.


’ariy’ë´l Ariel” is an Ivríyth ("Hebrew") word, formed by combining ’aríy (Strong’s Hebrew #0738), the `Ivríyth term for “lion,” and ’ë´l (Strong’s Hebrew #0410) meaning power/mighty one is called a “theophoric component.” Because the word ’ariy’ë´l refers to #2, the adversary, the lower creator, no need to capitalize, such words made by combining the meanings of two words are called “portmanteau.”  Decoding of Greek Septuagint scriptures has revealed mentions of theos (’ë´l in Greek) to always refer to “the mighty one of ’aharón” (light-carrier/lucifer), so we translate ’ë´l to English as “demon.”


These and other books also document the adversary’s appearance to resemble that of a lion, most remembered in post-advent scriptures, especially Disclosure (“Revelation”) 5 – see our video Lion God of Judah.  Many well-known terms have come from this demon-lion (’ariy’ë´l), including the zodiac symbol “Aries,” symbolized by a V resembling horns of a demon goat, another symbol for the adversary (see Baphomet) or scapegoat (azazel in Hebrew).  This ’ariy’ë´l “Aries” symbol V was widely promoted as a hand-sign falsely promoted by the establishment as meaning “V for victory” or a “peace sign.”  This ’ariy’ë´l “Aries” symbol V is also frequently seen in titles of movies, and on the foreheads of actors in Hollywood movies such as 'Stargate', and in reality often as “stork marks” on babies.


The demon-lion "’ariy’ë´l" also makes his zodiac sign leo (lion), with its symbol being a coiling serpent, also representative of the adversary.  But zodiac signs should not be taken seriously by the ones of the dual-names (heavens) because the visible stars of this sky represent the envoys of those who have nothing beyond this cosmos creation of the sub-creator, making all astrology be limited to archon-knowledge. In Sumerian language, the word vr-il identified with a lizard race associated with ariel (lion demon) as those having a god-like or like-god appearance, a serpent people.

Yshá`Yâhuw 29:1-7 mentions ’ariy’ë´l. Click here to find out what our Yâ-hwéh says.

Thus, although this earthbound geographical city “Yruwshâláim” might serve as a location for middle Yisrâ’ë´l outside Yâ-hwéh mobilized for war, under Yehuwthâ´h, against ’ariy’ë´l, the demon-lion against his own volunteers of outside Yisrâ’ë´l, note that the spiritual definition of a city is a spiritual network, and that verse 2 says their weakness in knowledge caused their sinking to become Yehuwthâ´h, the impostor adversary (sâţâ´n).


Other sources: ’ariy’ë´l


The prediction as it is found in establishment translations altered by satanic scribes gets partially falsely fulfilled materially by the adversary to create more confusion:   It relates ’’ariy’ë´l’s people to being (middle) Yisrâ’ë´l who forsook our Yâ-hwéh for their own father (spiritually becoming Moab); thus, this name ’ariy’ë´l also became a name of the political capital of Moab: Rabbath Moab was called Areopolis (city of the lion) as a further foreshadowing of Christianity’s future as also being the people of the demon-lion, sâţâ´n, when they knowingly forsake the true Yâ-hwéh.

Moreover, other groups who love the adversary use ’ariy’ë´l as a name for their children, “Ariel,” and other admirable characters in their fictional movies.


Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa said, in his book Of Occult Philosophy, Book III (part 3)

Quote- “Ariel is the name of an angel, and is the same as the lion of god (fortune); sometimes also it is the name of an evil Demon, and of a City which is thence called Ariopolis, where the Idol Ariel was worshipped.” (unquote)

Easton's Bible Dictionary defines Ariel as "the lion of God." Easton adds that Ariel is a "symbolic name for Jerusalem” 


Thomas Heywood, said, in his book Hierarchy of the Blessed Angels (1635) –  [’ariy’ë´l] is called both a prince who rules the waters and "Earth's great Lord”

                                                                                                                     “A wielder of the fire of gold” - a lion-headed deity or demon with power over the Earth

The authentic creation is the spiritual one that our Yâ-hwéh made.   The foolish boaster “Heyle’l” is the mamzer you speak of; no creator at all but an imposter who imposes over pre-existing forms.   satan(el) (or gad-’ariel) dragged down with its tail the selves/lives (nephesh) of those he thrust into matter, that fleshly garment you are sporting.


Easton's Bible Dictionary defines Ariel as "the lion of God." Easton adds that Ariel is a "symbolic name for Jerusalem”


In the Second Book of the Savior “Pistis Sophia”, the Sixth Chapter, ariel (’ariy’ë´l) is who administers punishments sh’ówl (hell or "amente') on all the néphesh before they recycle.  The chastisements are according to all individual errors.

Astray – Going 'astray' is a deviation from The Way Yâ-hwéh and those who derail get caught in the traps and distractions of the demons ("archons"), rulers, and enslavers of mankind. Those who deviate from The Way have not yet (truly) acknowledged ("gnosis’') our Savior. When the timeline of the completion is finally achieved, the ones who have gone astray will eventually acknowledge 'gnosis' our one true Savior,  Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa.` The codices tell us that the tendency to go 'astray' is in "those on whom the counterfeit spirit descends are drawn by him and they go astray" are offspring of the one, the largest, wisdom (of Life) following after wisdom of death. One of the twenty-four emanations out of Yâ-hwéh, known as 'wisdom (of Life), derailed (went astray) by misidentifying the lion-faced power of self-willed for the true Light [Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`]. Wisdom thought outside Him and looked below and saw the lion-faced demon and thought that its light came out of the Light which she had seen from the beginning in the height, which came out of the veil of the Treasury of the Light. And she thought to herself: "I will go into that region without my pair and take the light and there out fashion for myself light-æons, so that I may go to the Light of lights, which is in the Height of heights." And thus, Wisdom went astray and descended into material chaos.
