As above stated it is an image created in 18th century, but it has its roots much farther in the past. The symbolics that are used within Baphomet
speak the truth behind you only have to know them...
Who is Baphomet? Where does he come from? Is he really the counterpart of the god mentioned in the bible?
Let´s have a look into hermetic teaching whre this god came from:
According to Hermetic tradition, the direct, albeit unwilling cause of this catastrophe which affects us to this day, was Moses.
Everybody knows that Moses appeared floating in a basket down a river and was subsequently adopted, deceiving the Egyptian priests of the time. They
took him for an Egyptian and initiated him into the mysteries of ritual magic, which is a method for making the key notes of Nature vibrate, and thus
produce certain phenomena which the operator wishes to achieve. ...
In spite of his esoteric identification with Egyptian magic, Moses was always loyal to his ancestral blood. Thus, his most powerful wish was to make
himself the leader who would free his people from enslavement, leading them to the promised land. Guided by this desire, and conscious of the powerful
forces he had learned to control, Moses had a daring idea: to make a magic pact or alliance with an angel, a divine creature charged with the task of
providing him with power and assistance from heaven to save his people. After lengthy preparations done in deep solitude, he performed the ritual
ceremony with magic words and corresponding invocations.
In the midst of amazing atmospheric and terrestrial phenomena, an impressive being appeared, making Moses tremble with fear and panic, due to the
tremendous force it projected. It will never be possible to know or even imagine the conditions under which the pact between man and heaven was made.
The angel agreed to everything Moses requested and promised his help, demanding the strictest obedience in return. He revealed his name as Y., and
requested that as a sign of union, all his followers should undergo a small ritual surgical operation, with a light discharge of blood. Every man who
underwent this would come to be a son of Y. The blood that was shed sealed the pact. From that day forward, Moses was invested with superhuman
powers and started doing all kinds of magical feats, converting the Ark of the Covenant into the center of his power.
Plagues and calamities fell over Egypt, and non-believers and rebels were struck down by the wrath of Y In this manner, Moses' people started the
Exodus that would last forty years.
Later, Y., the occult power behind the leader, suddenly started to change his procedures by formulating strange demands, all of which had the shedding
of blood as the common denominator. Moses was overcome with fear and started to become aware of the magnitude of the error he committed. He then
understood that the divine angel was in truth an angel of darkness, the complete opposite of the luminous power he had intended to invoke. This
infernal angel was a member of the host of shadows. In order to maintain its power and strength, this vampire needed to feed on human blood, an
essence charged with the vitality conferred by the divine spark. This is why all through the Exodus, so many blood-shedding incidents occurred,
provoked by the occult dictator.
In reality, who was Y.? One could say he was a very ancient being whose evolutionary origin is unknown. Through long periods of cosmic time, this
being kept his individuality, but unfortunately his evolution was directed toward negative, dark, and destructive aspects; much like a human being who
grows bitter with the passing of time and adopts a negative and destructive concept of life. Many beings similar to Y. exist in the Universe.
Fortunately, the magnetic defenses of the planet constitute an impenetrable barrier against those beings. However, Moses' magic ritual opened a door
and cleared a pathway through which Y. was able to penetrate into the Earth. It is possible to see this as the most transcendental, but unfortunately
harmful event in the occult history of humanity. The tradition transmitted by the great Hermetic Masters affirms that at a crucial moment in the
history of humanity, a powerful diabolic Archangel, if we are allowed to call him thus, succeeded in penetrating the earth's occult defenses and
entered its atmosphere, provoking extreme disturbances....
