I have noticed three key points regarding Lilith a. there is considerable interest in her b. there is significant confusion surrounding Lilith’s identity and her role in human affairs and c. Lilith is a central figure in the occult and black magic.
Lilith was originally known as Lilitu – which means ‘a wind spirit or a female demon’ – in ancient Mesopotamian records about five thousand years ago. Lilith is mentioned in Tablet XII of the Epic of Gilamesh, though this was added much later to the original texts. In a story of magic, she represents the branches of a tree.** The erroneous rabbinical myths, regarding Lilith being Adam’s first wife relate to the Sumero-Babylonian Goddess Belit-ili or Belili. To the Canaanites, Lilith was Baalat the ‘Divine Lady.’ She also appears as a nocturnal demon in Jewish lore and as the Dark Lady is the proclaimed Mother of all demons, Incubus and Succubus spirits.
Lilith is known to be deceptive, dangerous, calculating and attracted to power. It is said that she managed to manipulate Abaddon, one of Heaven’s most devout enforcers, into betraying his comrades and becoming the Destroyer. Written in Kabbalistic literature, The Zohar, Lilith is described as an evil, immoral, demonic figure working with Satan – often described as Satan’s wife. Upon learning of the Serpent’s sinful deeds, the Creator ‘castrated’ Satan or Samael [Genesis 3:15].
Lilith allegedly, then chose fellow fallen Angel Asmodeus and became his bride instead and as a result they were believed to have procreated demonic offspring or Lilim and spread chaos at every turn. Lilith has been connected with Ishtar, Astarte, Inanna, Lillake, Isis, Aphrodite and Freya. The Midrash Abkier says that after Cain’s homicide brings death to the world, Adam separates from Eve for one hundred and thirty years. When the Lilith saw his beauty, she instantly desired him and took him by force by using his own sin against him. She bore him many demonic spirits known to be a plague to mankind. This scenario has more logic than Lilith being Adams’s supposed ‘first’ wife.
Black Witchcraft: Foundations of the Luciferian Path, Micheal W Ford & Akhtya Seker Arimanius – emphasis & bold mine:
‘In ongoing ritual work, the magician begins identifying his or herself with Samael (and Lilith) within the parameters of their own life and initiation.
“The Lord of the Earth, being a name ascribed to Samael (Satan) and his fallen angels and demons, are but considered astral spirits, that which no longer take physical form, but may become manifest through the magician or witch who may make a “pact” with them, being initiation and dedication to the Left Hand Path.
Samael is the patron spirit of the Left Hand Path, as his Word is what formed our thoughts and gave us the inner fire of the Black Flame, our individual process of thought and free will. The magicians who aligned their will with the Left Way, that of Samael (the Devil), were given powers over the earth in one way or another; all the while strengthening, defining and expanding their conscious.” Liber HVHI
Lilith, being the Bride of the Devil, is one part of the Adversary as being the dark instinctual side of man and woman, feminine, yet horrific. Lilith is known by the Semitic “Layil” which is a word meaning Night, but also the name of the demon of the storm. Lilith is associated with the screech owl and other beasts of the wild, as it is where she went after she left heaven to wander the earth.
She also taught the fallen angels how to form bodies and have sexual relations to give life to other ‘dragon children’. She was said to have been reunited with her mate Samael (Ahriman) after the fall, when he would not be roused by his fellow fallen ones and demons, only the words of Az (Lilith) could rouse him. He then kissed her form and caused menstruation, which was passed on to all women as Lilith is directly connected with their fiery and dark sides.
The Goddess of Luciferian Witchcraft is Lilith or Babalon…* She is also Hecate, the Darkened Moon Goddess of the Cunning Circle, whose blessing is both youth, imagination and death… refers to Hecate or Lilith (via Diana) as being “Hell’s dark mistress, Heaven’s Queen.” This is the dual nature of the Devil and his Bride, the Adversary.’
There is misunderstanding and confusion regarding Ishtar and Lilith and the perception they are distinct entities. A case in point is the Queen of the Night burney relief [see above]. Lilitu is described as being ‘nude, slender, well-shaped, beautiful with wings and owl like feet. A Lilitu spirit is portrayed as standing on lions who are flanked by owls.’ The Queen of the Night relief has the exact same details, yet experts claim it is a representation of Ishtar [Inana] or her underworld sister, Ereshkigal. Both Lilith and Ishtar are associated with lions. Ishtar is a goddess of the very same attributes that Lilith is: ‘beauty, love, fertility, sex, combat, justice and power.’ Symbols for Lilith include the owl, serpent, tree and a dark moon.
The Genesis 6 Conspiracy, Gary Wayne, 2014, pages 651-653 – emphasis & bold mine:
‘Some scholars identify Lilith as the aboriginal, evil Assyrian and Babylonian wind spirit or a goddess… Lilith too, was likened in lore to a Serpent or Dragon. Lilith was officially known in royal genealogies as the “Beautiful Dragon queen of the Anunnaki.” Queens of the Dragon Court, the Owl Queens, were likened to lilies, lotus flowers… Hebrew tradition labeled Lilith a Lamia, a blood-sucking demon (vampire) of Greek mythology that flew at night like a screech owl… Isaiah 34:13-17… Shub-Ad, in Sumerian lore, was a matriarchal dynast descending from Lilith, known also as “Nin-Pu-Abi,” as well as… Naamah, daughter of Lamech [Genesis 4:22]. This… confirms Naamah was part of the originating strain of the Dragon dynasty, descending directly from the devil… Lilith was the wife of the notorious Samael, chief of the fallen angels…’
The book of Isaiah, chapter thirty-four discusses the end time destruction of Edom and their spiritual rulers [refer Chapter XXIX Esau]. The chapter supports the slaying of the innocent goat on Atonement would result in the spirit Lilith being cast into the desert or wilderness of Edom with the wild scapegoat, Azazel. It is the Creator’s curse upon Samael and his seed, Lilith and her brother, Azazel that becomes the basis of the symbolism of Atonement in Leviticus Chapter sixteen – a ceremony that foretells the Creator’s final judgment [refer Chapter XXI Nimrod].
In Isaiah thirty-four, Lilith is equated with an owl. In fact within a few verses, three types of owl are mentioned. Owls represent the night, darkness and wisdom.
Isaiah 34:11, 13-15
English Standard version
… the owl [H3244 – yanshuwph: great or eared owl] and the raven shall dwell in it… It shall be the haunt of jackals [H8577 – tanniyn: dragon, serpent, venomous snake, sea monster], an abode for ostriches. And wild animals shall meet with hyenas [howling beasts]; the wild goat [H8163 – sa’iyr: satyr, devil, hairy, rough] shall cry [H7121 – qara’: proclaim, commission, summoned, be chosen] to his fellow H7453 – rea: intimate friend]; indeed, there the night bird [H3197 – liyliyth: screech or barn owl, a night spectre, ‘name of a female goddess’] settles and finds for herself a resting place. There the owl [H7091 – qippowz: great owl, arrow snake] nests and lays and hatches and gathers her young in her shadow…
The most well known of the screech owls, the Barn Owl
The Hebrew word for goat or satyr means: ‘hairy, he goat, sacrificial animal’ or ‘a demon possessed goat like the swine of Gadara (Matthew 8:30-32). Notice a sacrificial goat, as in Azazel.
Spectre means: ‘a menacing apparition, phantom’ or ‘ghost.’ Strongs says for the word ‘lilith’, ‘name of a female goddess known as a night demon who haunts the desolate places of Edom.’
Modern English Version
The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wolves, and the wild goat shall cry to its kind; the screech owl also shall rest there and find for herself a place of rest.
Orthodox Jewish Bible
The tziyyim (martens) shall also encounter iyyim (wild cats), and a sa’ir (seir, wild goat) calls to its companion, and lilit (night creature) dwells there and finds for itself a mano’ach (place of rest).
Complete Jewish Bible
Wildcats and hyenas will meet there; and billy-goats call to each other; Lilit (the night monster) will lurk there and find herself a place to rest.
And there shall the beasts of the desert meet with the jackals, and the wild goat shall cry to his fellow; the lilith also shall settle there, and find for herself a place of rest.
The creatures of the desert will encounter jackals And the hairy goat will call to its kind; Indeed, Lilith (night demon) will settle there And find herself a place of rest.
Wildcats and hyenas will hunt together, demons and devils dance through the night. The night-demon Lilith, evil and rapacious, will establish permanent quarters. Scavenging carrion birds will breed and brood, infestations of ominous evil.
Among the howling and hissing wild creatures and demons, Lilith herself, demoness of the night, will call Edom her haunt, A place to recoup and rest between her devastating forays.
Bohemian Grove Exposed! David J Stewart, 2004 – emphasis & bold mine:
‘The Bohemian Club [or Bohemian Grove, founded in 1872 by five American men] is a rich-man’s organization [75 miles out of San Francisco] that holds a two-week “camp” [consisting of 2,700 acres in an ancient Redwood forest] in northern California every year at the end of July. This strange and secretive group, which have received very little press coverage, have a 40-foot owl [named Molech] as its central symbol. Each year, approximately 1,500 of America’s most influential CEO’s, government officials, financiers, industrialists, and media moguls gather to hear speeches, network, and share common agendas. They also perform Druid-like ceremonies before a huge stone owl, complete with robes, fire, incantations, and other rituals.
But what does the owl symbolize? The owl is a symbol of wisdom. Owls can see in the dark. They can see what we cannot see. Likewise, members of the Illuminati are privileged to information that is hidden from the general public. Few magickal orders exist dedicated to the undercurrent of Lilith and deal in initiations specifically related to the Aracana of the first Mother. Two reputable organizations that progressively use initiations and magick associated with Lilith are the Ordo Antichristianus Illuminati and the Order of Phosphorus. When [Lilith] and Lucifer mate, they form an androgynous being called “Baphomet” or the “Goat of Mendes,” also known in Luciferianism as the “God of Witches.”‘
According to Adept Initiates – capitalisation and emphasis theirs:
‘The Atbash Cipher is a Hebrew code which substitutes the first letter of the alphabet for the last, the second letter for the second to last, and so on. When the Hebrew letters spelling Baphomet are applied to the Atbash Cipher it generates the Greek word “Sophia”.
The word “Sophia” in Hebrew is שופיא, and the Atbash form is בפעמת or “baf’omet”.
If one writes the word Baphomet in Hebrew (remember Hebrew letters read from right to left), and you apply the Atbash Cipher, Schonfield revealed the following:
The word BAPHOMET (Bet Pe Vav Mem Taf) with the Atbash Cipher (Shin Vav Pe Yud Alef) spells SOPHIA.
Although written in Hebrew it reads as the Greek word “Sophia” again, meaning wisdom.
The most noteworthy translation of Baphomet comes from a Masonic source “Craft Symbolism in the Gnostic Mass” which says,
“An interesting point about Baphomet is that the Greek translation of this name breaks down into the words bafe (BAPhE – baptism) and metis (METIS – wisdom): Baptism of Wisdom.”’
Of course, what becomes even more interesting is that recorded in the scriptures is an ancient being who existed at the beginning with the Eternal One. This entity was not the one known as the Word [John 1:1], but rather as Wisdom… and she was female.
“I, wisdom, was with the Lord when he began his work, long before he made anything else. I was created in the very beginning, even before the world began. I was born before there were oceans, or springs overflowing with water, before the hills were there, before the mountains were put in place. God had not made the earth or fields, not even the first dust of the earth. I was there when God put the skies in place, when he stretched the horizon over the oceans, when he made the clouds above and put the deep underground springs in place. I was there when he ordered the sea not to go beyond the borders he had set. I was there when he laid the earth’s foundation. I was like a child by his side. I was delighted every day, enjoying his presence all the time, enjoying the whole world, and delighted with all its people [Proverbs 8:22–31 NCV].
The evil spirit and dark Angel Lilith, mirrors Revelation’s Great Whore of Babylon.* In the Book of Zohar there is Isheth Zenunim, a ‘woman of whoredom’ [1:5a, 1:5b]. Isheth [Ishtar, Easter] Zenuim is called the evil Lilith; known in Hebraic legends as the ‘screech owl’ and who is described in Isaiah 34:14 as living ‘in the wilderness.’ This whore is known as Lilith or Lilitu in Kabbalist’s legends. Her harlotry with the nations, is found in Nahum 3:1-4. The evil entity that is being described as a woman in the wilderness or desert wasteland, who is drunk from the blood of those slain, who fell prey to her lies and sorceries is too close for comfort, to the end-time Woman of Mystery and Babylon the Great, John describes in the Book of Revelation.
English Standard Version
And all for the countless whorings of the prostitute, graceful and of deadly charms, who betrays nations with her whorings, and peoples with her charms.
All because of the many acts of prostitution of (Nineveh) [capital of Asshur] the prostitute, The charming and well-favored one, the mistress of sorceries, Who betrays nations by her acts of prostitution (idolatry) And families by her sorceries.
Because of the multitude of the fornications of the well-favoured harlot, mistress of sorceries, that selleth nations through her fornications, and families through her sorceries,
New Century Version
The city was like a prostitute; she was charming and a lover of magic. She made nations slaves with her prostitution and her witchcraft.
New International Readers Version
All of that was caused by the evil desires of the prostitute Nineveh. That woman who practiced evil magic was very beautiful. She used her sinful charms to make slaves out of the nations. She worshiped evil powers in order to trap others.
This is all because you tempted and lured the nations like a harlot, dangling the allure of immorality. You were a sorceress promising control of the spiritual world, enslaving nations to lives of immorality and families to sorcery.
English Standard Version
The Great Prostitute and the Beast
… “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” 3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. 5 And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” 6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.
Doom to Murder City – full of lies, bursting with loot, addicted to violence! Horns blaring, wheels clattering… Dead bodies rotting in the street, corpses stacked like cordwood, Bodies in every gutter and alley, clogging every intersection! … Whore City, Fatally seductive, you’re the Witch of Seduction, luring nations to their ruin with your evil spells.
Female Demon Lilith: Sigil & Invocation of Primal Femininity, Vishnu M – capitalisation theirs, emphasis & bold mine:
‘The aspirant of the traditional Qabalah slowly traverses up the Sephiroth to reunite with God (or enlightenment, in Eastern terms). However, there is still another path: That of the Qliphothtic left hand path. In the Left Hand Qliphothic path, the goal is not to ascend the tree of life Sepiroth, but the shadowy flip side of the tree, the Qliphoth: The goal of the Qliphothic path is not only to unite with the cosmos or God, but to go beyond it and become a creator in your own right. For the Qliphothic magician however, the goal is to plunge into the darkness more and more until the ultimate is realized. The true light is reached only after the shadowy passage through the tree** of Qliphoth.
Lilith, the shadow world is the entry point into the left hand path Qliphothic mysticism. This is where magickal practices such as sex with succubus spirits and female demon lilith herself is practiced. Such practices are to be used to enter into the Qliphothic realms and not as mere sexual indulgence. The sexual energy that we possess IS the life force of the Kundalini within us. It is our only connect to the impersonal divine and it originates… right around the sexual organs, where the serpent is said to coil, laying dormant. The Chakra is placed at the genital area in the occult map to point out the correlation to sexual energy. The actual sexual center of course, exist[s] in the brain rather than in the genitals.
It is a serpent because it has been repressed without allowing it to express itself wholly. If the serpent is allowed to express in it’s highest form… then the creative forces within the vessel become God like. This is exactly how it is described by Qliphothic magicians. In Qliphothic terms, the Muladhara Chakra is the Lilith Qliphah herself where the Kundalini serpent lies dormant! The relevance of the serpent and the tree** of knowledge that awakens in Abrahamic genesis story becomes very apparent.’
David Stewart: “Lilith is described as either a winged serpent or a screech owl (or a anthropomorphic combination thereof)…”
Lilith was not Adam’s wife as these have been sourced to spurious rabbinical origins. Though she possibly had interaction with Adam after the Garden of Eden incident, of which she may even have been involved in the seduction of Eve with the Serpent. Nor was Lilith a Nephilim, or in other words a demon. Lilith was not the product of an angelic-human liaison but rather, she is a fallen Angel and her being included in scripture by name, albeit subtly and then equated as the Mistress of the Beast, reveals her standing in the dark pantheon of Satan’s cohorts.
