In the Ancient Ranking of Divinity, we have levels. On the lower level, there are humans. On the immediate level above this, we have heroes [humans who have ascended]. Higher than this, we have Demons [ascended and also immortals] and on the highest ranking, we have the Gods, which are on a level which, except of immortality and ascension, is far beyond understanding.GoldenxChild1 wrote: ↑Fri May 14, 2021 8:29 pmHello family, I was recently reading a sermon by HPC titled "Demons, Gods and Protectors of Gentiles". I noticed within the sermon that it says daemons are lower than gods but superior to humans. It also mentions that "Gods" are Higher Ranked Daemons.
I was hoping someone could clarify the meaning, I.E., are all of our Original Pagan Gods Daemons ? If so, then are all Daemons Gods ? Or can Daemonic status be reached but not yet Godly status like it mentions in the sermon ?
Demon means "Knowledgeable One" in Ancient Greek, and while Demons are "partly" Gods, they are from a sphere of consciousness that is not as high as the Gods. They are in other words evolving on that level progressively. Gods, or in other modern words, High Ranking Demons, are top hierarchy. An example of this would be Astarte or Beelzebul.
When these beings are encountered there are notable observations on mass power, influence, what they can do and so on. All these beings have different spheres of influence.
An example of a Demon [who is still a God compared to a human] would be Asmodeus, who was once a human that ascended first to "Hero" status and then was deified. A lot of prominent humans that were spiritually advanced and died, were deified later to the "Hero" status. Asclepius, made it to the status of a "Hero" [Holy spiritual person who has ascended] and over the years he was given honorary rites of Demons.
Terminology aside this is just the Godhead, but in order to make the fact that ranks still exist afterwards, neoplatonic philosophers explained these. These categories also exist in the Eastern religions of Dharma, where the categories of the levels of consciousness are divided in "Heavens".
Some philosophers like Plotinus also added different ranks to this system, such as "Angel" and "Archangel", later on added by other Neoplatonic philosophers. These words have been stolen by the enemy [long after these were used, since these are Ancient Greek words] and they mean "Messenger" and "Leader of the Messengers", respectively.
Nowadays we know the "messengers" as "Minor Gods", or "Messenger Demons", and this is also why the Crowned Princes and other beings in modern Demonolatry have been called "Of the order of the Archangels". The higher ranking Demons frequently send lower ranking Demons to help people advance, protect them, and look after them closely. These types as it's said in the JoS site, are like Gargoyles or Pazuzu.
While extremely strong, they are not like the High Ranking Demons. Yet, because of their very prominent role in the history of mankind, and how much they have helped us, they were held in extremely high reverence, which they nonetheless fully deserved.
This was also known to the enemy, who stole the terminology that was later used by the xian church to also describe these ranks, and was stolen from Ancient Greek philosophy on the subject. Therefore the enemy speaks also of "archangels", "angels" and so on. In regards to Satan, they say that his rank is the "Most High", alluding to spiritual rank as high that it's beyond understanding.
Originally this had nothing to do with xianity however, even though today it is entirely correlated to the xian view of things, in words like "angel" and so on. This xian view also promoted Demons as solely being "Demons" and removed any form of ranking between Demons, expect of in their hidden, known only to the Pope or top jews, grimoires.
For those who have summoned different Demons, they will understand differences in rank as is.
All these collectively regardless, our Demons, we call them Gods, which is what they are to us anyway. The above was just a description of the different ranks of the Demons.
However even this may not be necessary, since all our Demons are basically Gods to us. Yet, because this type of upwards movement helps one understand how the person progressively "builds up" to a higher level, this should be interesting to know and acts to show that humanity has thankfully a very great way to advance in front and above it.
