Archangel moves to found his own self-governing domain
For the first time in the Heavenly realms, that is, the Central Universe, there was schism. There was division among the angelic race, with one faction being pro-Lucifer and the other, which was led by Michael, ranged against him. The Paal Taal, on the other hand, were all in one accord. If Lucifer thought his vexations were going to cause ructions among them, he was dead wrong.
The debate was long and protracted. Lucifer was not simply dismissively brushed off: he was given a just and exhaustive hearing. Lucifer fancied himself as the brightest and ablest of the angelic race and this gifting went to his head – literally and figuratively. He had convinced himself that although he lacked the surpassing inventiveness of the Paal Taal, he was intellectually head and shoulders above them. He considered himself flawless in his judgement.
Having sat in their counsels, the Paal Taal finally rendered their verdict. Lucifer’s petition was thrown out. Whilst they regarded his wishes as noble and considerate, they feared that if the angels incarnated into the physical realms and lived side by side with humanoids, the latter were likely to receive them as gods, with the result that the now deified angels might unintentionally mislead the humanoids and consequently stall their spiritual evolution instead of helping advance it.
Lucifer therefore had to be content with the original role that was assigned to the angelic race – that of ministering to the needs of humanoids and from the safe distance of the Heavenly realm. The physical realm remained a no-go area for the angels.
No sooner had the judgement been pronounced by the Paal Taal than archangel Michael counter-petitioned. Michael put it to the Paal Taal that Lucifer’s rash act had sullied the Heavenly realm and that it would probably never be the same again considering that the angelic race were now at odds with one another.
Thus if Lucifer was allowed to get away scotfree, there would be two centres of power among the angelic race and fissures would persist forever. Michael therefore besought the Paal Taal to expel Lucifer and the third of the angelic host that had rallied behind him from the Heavenly realms.
Just like they had intently listened to archangel Lucifer, the Paal Taal did likewise in the case of archangel Michael. Michael’s arguments had its merits. However, the Paal Taal were of the view that if Lucifer had erred he deserved a second chance. There is no sin too heinous to be forgiven, they pointed out. The Paal Taal themselves actually undertook to do their utmost to ensure that they reconciled the two factions that had arisen on account of Lucifer’s dissension.
That was how things would have panned out had the wishes of the Paal Taal been allowed to be put to the test. The fact of the matter, sadly, was that the Paal Taal were not given a chance to act out their desire to attempt to paper over the cracks in the angelic edifice. Standing in their way was none other than Lucifer himself.
LUCIFER BREAKS AWAY
Lucifer stunned the Paal Taal when he put it to them that in fact he no longer wished to remain in the Central Universe and continue to be subject to the draconian Paal Taal but wanted to found his own physical domain which he would rule and where his aspirations would be pursued without impediment. In other words, he wanted to secede from the Heavenly realms. And not only that: he wanted to create his own soul-carrier that would make it possible for angels to dwell in the physical realm.
Now, we did point out at some stage that Superuniverse No. 7, our universe, is not a theocracy where the wishes of the Paal Taal reign supreme. It is a free will universe where beings are free to actuate their every wish, whether it impacts them positively or adversely in the final analysis. The Paal Taal’s hands were therefore tied: they would not stand in Lucifer’s way. However, they did warn him of the full ramifications of his deviance.
First, the Paal Taal had the title deeds to the entire universe, having fashioned it along with God. Moreover, whilst they themselves ran the outlying realms of the Central Universe, they had given the humanoids the power of attorney over the physical universe. Put differently, only two races had jurisdiction in Superuniverse No.7 – the Paal Taal and the humanoids. Thus, there was no place for Lucifer to operate in the whole universe. He could not simply carve out his own domain from the cosmic fabric that was already in existence: he would have to create his own universe from scratch!
Second, by going against the sacrosanct code of the Paal Taal, Lucifer would lose that quantum connection to God every being had. He would no longer be part of the unification force that linked all sentient beings to First Source. This was analogous to a light bulb going flat and without the possibility of recharging it to restore the electrical connection to mains.
Third, the Paal Taal had a patent on humanoid DNA. So if Lucifer wished to create his own soul-carrier, he would have to devise his own DNA to activate these soul-carriers. Under no circumstances would he be allowed to harness the workings of the patented humanoid DNA, which in any case was replete with encryptions not even a being of Lucifer’s IQ would be able to hack into.
All the consequences that would come with Lucifer’s course of action were spelt out to him and he was even given time to reconsider. Lucifer, however, was adamant, such was his unwavering self-belief. As such, he declared that his decision was irrevocable: he was setting out on his own, period. Having done their best to dissuade him, the Paal Taal had no option but to release Lucifer along with a third of his loyalists. What emerges, therefore, is that contrary to what is preached in church pulpits, Lucifer wasn’t expelled from the Heavenly realms: he broke away of his own accord. Moreover, it was not with God that Lucifer had beef: it was with the Paal Taal. Lucifer had never even seen God.
In the Bible, Lucifer’s secession is superficially related in REVELATION: 12:7-9. The incident is referred to as a “war” though it was by no means an armed conflict but a war of words. Over the ages, there have been several derivative stories from the same event but the archetype story is the one we’re relating: all others are patterned after this one as we shall see in due course.
With Lucifer’s breakaway, the archangel Michael took his place as the superintending angel.
LUCIFER CREATES A COUNTERFEIT UNIVERSE
How was Lucifer going to create his own universe?
The proposition was a tall order. It was akin to asking King Kong to design and develop New York City. The existing universe was created by the Paal Taal under the direct guidance and supervision of God. If it took God to fashion the universe, then how could Lucifer, a mere creature and who was probably not half as capable as the Paal Taal, pull off a similar feat? It simply was not possible especially at this stage of his evolution as a spirit-soul.
Even the Paal Taal on their own would never be able to construct their own, viable universe at this stage without God’s direct involvement. Such a capacity had to be earned. It could only be attained when a being was fully evolved for it did not depend upon raw intelligence: it depended upon the degree of purity of one’s soul. And only God at this juncture was a pure soul.
Since Lucifer could not replicate the methods the Paal Taal had used to bring about the physical universe, he decided to create a counterfeit one. This was going to be a holographic universe, a virtual reality universe similar to the world of cyberspace. This artificial world was going to be only loosely based on the real physical universe humanoids occupied, which we now call the Old Universe. It was going to be built on material that was only a weak imitation of the building blocks of the Old Universe. Although it would be a bogus, pantomime universe, it would still be viable and capable of housing life because a spirit-soul can inhabit anything: it is not limited in anyway.
Lucifer’s universe was going to be founded on his own devised quantum and structural laws. These laws would be based on a methodology he himself had invented but which was not applicable either in the central Universe or the Old Universe. This methodology is what we call mathematics. It was Lucifer who invented mathematics folks and its related branches such as physics and what is known as sacred geometry. Lucifer is the greatest scientist whoever lived because he is the inventor of science. Remember, he wasn’t simply an ordinary angel: he was an archangel, one of the first such angels to be created. He therefore did have plenty of “grey matter”.
Employing very sophisticated techniques of a primeval brand of algorithm engineering that even today is inconceivable to the mind of ordinary man, Lucifer formulated his first frequency spectrum, his first medium of existence. That would be the headquarters of his fake universe. Now, just like God created his own multiverse and then entered it to live in it like the way we build houses or mansions and then occupy them, Lucifer along with his loyal angels entered the synthetic universe he had created to dwell in it.
The creation story recorded in Genesis is not about God, the First Source, creating the cosmos. It is about Lucifer creating the cosmos, his fake universe in which we dwell. God had nothing to do with the creation of this artificial and jerrybuilt universe. It was all brought about by Lucifer, which explains why it is so chaotic, why even the little order there is always has to spring from chaos, one example of which is the Big Bang our cosmologists say gave rise to the cosmos.
Note that the original Hebrew Bible does not refer to the creator of Genesis as “God”: it refers to this creator as “Elohim” (a plural term, meaning the Anunnaki). The term “God” is an English interpolation. The writers of Genesis naively attributed the creation of the cosmos to the Anunnaki because that was the yarn they were fed. In truth, however, it was Lucifer who created this universe.
Lucifer means “light-bringer” or “illuminator”. This aspect of bringing light we find in GENESI 1:3, which reads, “And God said let there be light and there was light”. This “light” does not refer to the sun: the sun comes into existence in Verse 14.
So what was this light that was in operation ages before the sun came into existence? Well, when Lucifer created this mathematically-based, computer-generated universe like we see in the famous Matrix Trilogy movie, it was dim, not in total darkness as such (like the Internet it had a bit of artificial light) and was riddled with teething problems. “And the Earth (the cosmos) was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep (space) and the spirit of God (Lucifer) moved upon the face of the waters” (the ocean of space) as per GENESIS 1:2.
The physical universe Lucifer had designed was engulfed in near-darkness. So to dispel the darkness, Lucifer lit it up from the luminosity emanating from his own person (the Bible also calls him an Angel of Light). Hence, Lucifer is a fitting epithet for him because it was he who illumined the entire universe long before the sun was created. (The universe is all light. The so-called dark matter, which comprises 96 percent of the universe, we are unable to see because our DNA has been pared down from 12 strands to 2 strands. We shall dwell on this subject fully in due course).
LUCIFER’S TWO HEADQUARTERS
The holographic (Internet-like) universe Lucifer created was multilayered. It had several spheres of existence. First, there was the etheric sphere; then there was the material sphere.
The etheric realm was the most sophisticated. It is said to comprise of 7 planes of existence to numerically accord with the 7 superuniverses in the entire multiverse though other sources say it actually consists of 12 planes of existence. Using his mathematical and scientific (physics) wizardry, Lucifer created the etheric realm in such a way that it vibrated at a much faster rate at a quantum (sub-atomic) level than the material realm. The exact rate of vibration was graduated: the lower realms of the etheric realm vibrated at a comparatively lower rate than the higher realms. The first plane of existence in the etheric realm is the astral realm, where we head at death. The astral is also known as the Fourth Dimension. Lucifer made his etheric headquarters in the lower Fourth Dimension for reasons we shall soon explain.
The material sphere was the realm we inhabit, the cosmos we see and feel, what we generally refer to as the universe in our day-to-day language. Note that in its formative stages, the substructure of the cosmic bodies (galaxies, planets, etc) of the universe was not as dense (solid) as it is today. It was much more fluid. As such, Lucifer was able to dwell in it but not for a lengthy period of time since his angelic constitution was not well-suited even to quasi-solidity but was better-suited to the more rarefied (finer in quantum texture) astral plane.
Just as he had a headquarters in the etheric realm, Lucifer also had a headquarters in the physical universe. This was on a unknown planet in a galaxy known as the Whirlpool Galaxy, also called Messier 51 (M-51), which is between 25 to 38 million light years from Earth. It was in the Whirlpool Galaxy Lucifer set to work and structure the entire physical universe using mathematics to bring about all phenomena in it.
We are all familiar with the cross symbol, which can take the form of an X or the tri-cross (the Christian Cross). The global citizenry has always been of the mistaken belief that the tri-cross is a symbol of Jesus Christ. It is not. The tri-cross is actually the primary symbol of the Devil (Lucifer) disguised by doctored history as a symbol of “redemption” or “salvation” as Christian theologians profess.
If you look at the picture of the Whirpool Galaxy as taken by the Hubble Telescope (see accompanying illustration), it’s most pronounced feature is a shape resembling either an X or a tri-cross. Clearly, the tri-cross is fundamentally a symbol of ultimate homage to Lucifer’s headquarters in our universe – his universe to put it more accurately!
There is a saying in South Africa which avers that, “the White man has no kin: his kin is money”. The saying rings very true considering what Mayer Amschel Rothschild – he of the planet’s wealthiest family – once said, that, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!”
To the white man, the dollar sign looms so large in his optics that it was precisely the reason he appropriated Africa towards the end of the 19th century. The idea was to develop his continent, Europe, at the same rate as he underdeveloped Africa. Yet he was driven as much by economic imperatives as by sheer greed and prejudice.
A “pagan” King violates the Jewish Temple by setting up an idol in the Holy of Holies
Why, General Atiku, has the Judean setting (present-day Israel/Palestine) being the focus of so much geopolitical fervour over the ages when it is so resource-poor and is not even that agriculturally fecund being a virtual desert? Why have all the superpowers of history locked horns over it since days immemorial?
Just a ‘teaser’: we are all complaining of the ‘hot weather’ and ‘heat’ – but think about it, is this a reminder / warning from the Almighty that if we find this weather ‘hot’ can you imagine what the ‘fires of hell’ will be like should we get there?
Let us take this as a reminder and a ‘warning’ that we should change our lifestyles so that we follow in the path of righteousness and that which our Lord has directed. Failing this we will face the ‘fire of hell’ which undoubtedly will be many times worse than what we are facing on this earth.
Because as humans we have been favoured and bestowed with the power of intellect thus we enjoy greatness over other creation, coupled with a greater responsibility. Should that responsibility be misused then only on the Day of Reckoning will he know we will live in joy or in grief forever.
Since the dawn of creation Allah has sent down thousands of messengers, dozens of Divine Books but only ONE universal Message to humanity. That message of Divine Revelation and guidance is clear, unambiguous and eternal:
Allah is One, He is Master and Creator of the universe and of mankind and to Him is due all worship and obedience.
He has sent humanity Divine Revelation and guidance through His Messengers and His Books.
As death is inevitable in this world, equally is our resurrection in the Hereafter where everyone will face the consequences of their belief, unbelief and conduct in this temporal world.
This is the basic message, teaching and belief of every religion and without doubt we will all be called to account for our lives in this world and the manner in which we conducted ourselves, will be rewarded thereafter, the consequences of which may be joy forever for some or grief forever for others.
“It is He [Allah] Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deeds and He is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.” (Qur’an: 67: 2)
In Islam the teachings of the Qur’an and the Last and Final Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) give clear guidance to the believer on how to live a life in this world so as to achieve success in the Hereafter.
‘If any do wish for the transitory things of this life, We readily grant them, such things as We will, to such persons as We will…… those who wish for the things of the Hereafter and strive for them with all due striving, and have faith, they are the ones whose striving is acceptable to Allah’ (Qur’an 17: 18-19)
In this world when a person sets out on a journey towards our Maker (Allah), he finds two paths, one leading to God and the other path to different destinations. A sincere and faithful believer will always try to find the right path and to live by the Divine injunctions, laws and code that his religion lays down. This requires us to live in harmony with the will of the Creator, in harmony with our own selves, and with the needs of the rest of creation. Unfortunately we have a tendency at times to toy with Divine Law and to surrender it to the laws of man and in the process to translate and interpret them into what fits in with our lifestyle of today.
If we are to use the intellect and the freedom of choice bestowed to us by God Almighty and follow His guidance, we will then live consciously in a state of “submission’ to Him, thus we will be virtuous. On the other hand when we ignore our Creators injunctions we work against the natural order, we tend to create discord, injustice and evil – and we become one without guidance. Therefore it is the intellect and the freedom of choice given to us that we are fully responsible for whatever we do.
However, it would be foolish for us to think of ourselves as totally independent and self-sufficient. If a person thinks in this manner, we become proud and. We will be inclined to become ungrateful for the bounties that we enjoy – the air that we breathe and the food we eat to sustain us, the eyes and ears we use to perceive the world around us, the tongue and lips we use to express our needs, wants and our inner most feelings and emotions. And being ungrateful, we will be inclined to forget or to reject the truth of the existence of God Almighty.
Unfortunately, people have varying views with regards to what the most important characteristic of a person is: for some it is the colour of his skin; for others, it is his economic situation – whether he is wealthy or poor; others think it is his , social or political standing, whether he is ruler or ruled; for others it is his social standing as an aristocrat, middle or working class; yet for some is his birth place and the language he speaks or the tribe he belongs to, etc..
‘Do men think that they will be left alone on saying “We believe”, and they will not be tested? We tested those before them, and Allah will certainly those who are true and those who are false’. (Quran 29: 2-3)
In Islam, these have no significance rather they are merely taken as signs of the creative power of God to enable people to recognise one another. The Almighty declares “O Mankind! Indeed we have created you as male and female, and have placed you in nations and tribes that you may have mutual recognition. However, the most honourable of you, in the sight of Allah is the one who is most God-conscious” (Qur’an: 49: 13)
Hence, the most important characteristic of a person is whether he is conscious of his Creator, believes in Him and through that consciousness submits to Him at all times and in all circumstances.
According to the Islamic view man is created by Allah in a pure state, free from sin. He also created us with the capacity or power to do both good and evil. He gave us the freedom to choose between doing good or evil. The good and evil therefore is connected with mankind’s freedom of choice and responsibility for their actions. “Good” may be whatever is pleasing to Allah and therefore beneficial to us. Whereas “Bad/evil” may be whatever incurs the anger of God and is therefore harmful to man.
‘By the soul, and the proportion and order given to it; And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right – truly he that succeeds that purifies it, and he fails that corrupts it….. (Quran 91: 7-10)
Therefore one of mankind’s main tasks is to keep away from and ward off evil. This is why Taqwa, piety and God consciousness is repeatedly mentioned in the Qur’an as the most important quality a person should develop in this regard. This means one must be conscious at all times not to over step the limits set by God. It works as a defence against evil and temptation by keeping a person within the boundaries of piety.
