Why do you call it Hades, if you're going to clarify and let everyone know that it is Hell immediately afterward in parenthesis? Hades was not so
much the name of a location, as it was the name of the ruler of that location. Hades is the Greek lord of the Underworld, an Underworld consisting of
both paradise and torment in various levels.
For instance, Tartarus is the deepest, darkest, most vile place in the Underworld. Filled with the Titans of mythology, and all of the damned souls of
The Asphodel fields, which is where everyday souls who had died were subject to the rule of Hades.
The Elysian islands, ruled by Cronus, where the heroes of Greek mythology (Perseus, Heracles, Theseus, etc
) went after they died.
Finally, the Elysian fields, where the virtuous dead, and those initiated into the Mystery Cults were allowed to dwell under the rule of
Historical lessons aside, I am just curious why you align your visions of a Christian Heaven and Hell with Hades, a god of Greek mythology that had
nothing to do with Christ, Yahweh, or Satan. You seem a little misguided in your associations between Hell and Hades.
You say that you are an archangel, and together all people (who are archangels) compose the body of Christ. I'm a little confused by this. Doesn't
the Bible teach that man and all of the choirs of angels are different types of beings? My Biblical memory might be a little off, but if I recall
correctly the angels (Seraph, Cherub, angel, Archangel, Domination, Virtues, etc
) were created by God to sing hosannas and hallelujahs all day
and night in praise of their glorious creator, Yahweh.
Wasn't man made separately, of dirt and clay, to be free and act independently? How exactly then do you come to the conclusion that you are not an
independently created, free-willed, child of God crafted of clay and dirt by his hands - but are instead a being of light and the cosmos created to
forever praise the Lord, without a free-thought or any other kind of desire?
The last time I checked, the angels who didn't sing praises and worship the Lord like a robot, were the fallen
angels. Like Satan, Lucifer,
Beelzebub, Mammon, Astaroth, Asmodeus, Belial, Blephegor and the like. Are you saying that you are a fallen angel who wishes to be revered by the Lord
as man is?
I don't mean to be a stickler, but your association that we are "dead" when dreaming, and "alive" when awake is faulty. Our brains and bodies are
just as active, sometimes more active, during sleep (specifically REM sleep) than they are while awake. In the spirit of curiosity though, I would
like to know how you came to the conclusion that I die every night while I sleep, and am reborn (resurrected?) every morning.
Finally, you talk a lot about the Devil being in Hades, but also being somewhere else outside of Hades waiting to be tossed back into Hades. Or
something, it's kind of confusing to try and follow. Could you maybe compose a second post explaining again about the Devil being in Hades, but
not... but still being there. Or however it goes? It would help me understand your stance much better.
Also, what name do you ascribe to this Devil? Is it Lucifer, or Satan? Beelzebub? Leviathan? Any idea?
