    I know you have been reading up on the Egyptian religion. This is why I'm asking you a couple of queston.

    Where in the Koran the word "beast" is used to describe satan. I once read it but I do not have a concordance to locate it again.

    Also in the book of the dead a woman is refered to as "lady of flame" p.55 and a "mistress of the world" p.64-65 would this woman be similar to the whore of bablyon in revelation. on page 295 it gets more detailed "Lo, the lady of heaven, the mistress of the world, who devoureth with fire". Dont you think that the christians writers in their frustration and competition with the Egyptian religion when revelations was written copied and decided to attack the orgins of their religions which they missunderstood ?

    I think you're referring to Sura 27 (Al-Naml) ayats 80-82, which reads as follows:

    "Truly thou canst not cause the dead to listen, nor canst thou cause the deaf to hear the call, especially when they turn back in retreat.

    Nor canst thou be a guide to the blind, to prevent them from straying; only those wilt thou get to listen who believe in Our signs, and they will bow to Islam.

    And when the word is fulfilled against them (the unjust), we shall produce from the earth a beast to face them; he will speak to them, for that mankind did not believe with assurance in Our signs." (Sura Al-Naml: 80-82)

    The beast will be one of the signs of the Last Days to come, before the present world passes away and the New World is brought into being. In symbolic language it would represent gross materialism. It will be the embodiment of fat worldly triumph, which will appeal to a misguided and degenerate world, because such a corrupt world will have no assured in the signs of God or in spiritual light.

    It will itself be a sign or portent, closing the door of repentance. I do not know whether this "beast" has any reference to the symbolism in Rev. 12, which closes the New Testament.

    If "taklimuhum" is read instead of "tukallimuhum," it would mean that the beast would wound them; symbolically, that materialism would produce its own nemesis...

    Here is the Biblical reference to Lilith:

    "Wildcats shall meet with hyenas, goat-demons shall call to each other; there too Lilith shall repose, and find a place to rest. There shall the owl nest and lay and hatch and brood in its shadow."

    (Isaiah 34:14)

    Yes Bro. Ifesahun...in addition to The Egyptian Book of the Dead and Isha Schwaller de Lubicz's The Opening of the Way. Here is chapter 26 of The Opening of the Way...titled "Signature":

    Explanation is one thing, meditation another; both are necessary. So we shall let the heart speak, without concern for what men may say.

    The Spirit “bloweth where it listeth,” and not where men desire.

    Truth is that which is, not what men imagine.

    The Destiny of the Earth is written in the Sun and Moon, and not in the science of men.

    The heredity of the “person” is written in his liver, not in human records.

    His destiny can be read in his eyes, his hands, his face, but these are to men a secret cipher.

    His true “name” is the impulse that brought him to Earth; only his appearance has a name among men.

    The place that has drawn him down to human earth is his country of adoption.

    If the throne of his heart is empty, then the end of life for him will have all the horror of endless exile.

    But if his heart is the throne of his immortal Self, then his true country is the place in Heaven whence he descended, and his place of exile is among men.
