The Fallen One, Fallen Angel Abaddon. SUPPORT “ANCIENT MYSTERY”
The term Abaddon, and its Greek equivalent Apollyon appear in the Bible as both a place of destruction and an angel of the abyss. In the Hebrew Bible, abaddon is used with reference to a bottomless pit, often appearing alongside the place (Sheol) meaning the realm of the dead. In the New Testament Book of Revelation, an angel called Abaddon is described as the king of an army of locusts; his name is first transcribed in Greek, Revelation 9:11 “whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, The Angel of Death.” and then translated “which in Greek means the Destroyer” Apollyon. The Latin Vulgate and the Douay Rheims Bible have additional notes (not present in the Greek text) “in Latin Exterminans”, exterminans, being the Latin word for “destroyer”. The term Abaddon appears six times in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible; Abaddon means destruction or “place of destruction” or the realm of the dead, and is accompanied by Sheol. The text of the Thanksgiving Hymns which was found in the Dead Sea Scrolls tells of “the Sheol of Abaddon” and of the “torrents of Belial [that] burst into Abaddon” The Biblical Antiquities mentions Abaddon as a place (destruction) rather than an individual. Abaddon is also one of the compartments of Gehenna. By extension, it can mean an underworld abode of lost souls, or Gehenna. In some legends, Abaddon is identified as a realm where the damned lie in fire and snow, one of the places in Gehenna that Moses visited. In the New Testament. The Christian scriptures contain the first known depiction of Abaddon as an individual entity instead of a place. Revelation 9:11 A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans. 3 names Douay-Rheims Bible. In Revelation 9-11, Abaddon is described as “Destroyer”, the angel of the abyss, and as the king of a plague of locusts resembling horses with crowned human faces, women’s hair, lions’ teeth, wings, iron breast-plates, and a tail with a scorpion’s stinger that torments for five months anyone who does not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
