Even though the modern era defines Jehovah as being the only god, the correct translation of the Hebraic Elohim is articulated at the plural. For the adept of esoterism, the two names refer to different entitites. Elohim are seven High Spirits that act together as a single God and work the Solar Energy, and Jehovah is the one that starts battling Lucifer, meaning the goddess Venus.

For the ancient initiates Jehovah is the High Spirit of the Moon. He is the creator of reflection and of thinking. He teaches us to fight with our impulses and bestial desires through analysis and reflection.  If the Sun is life, the Moon teaches us the morality to gain Life. In a hard way to understand for materialists or those who think only exoterically, the moon governs the pituitary gland or hypophysis.

For the Jews, Jehovah, and for the Arabs, Allah, he is the Demiurge that teaches us how to fight Lucifer giving us the rules which, if respected, would help us access the superior levels of consciousness that bind us with the Source. As the Elohim chained Satan, or as the Sun defeated Saturn, so does Jehovah or Allah defeat Lucifer.

The echo of this titanic fight is found in all the world’s cultures: the battle of Krishna with the snake-demon Kaliya, of Apollo with the monstrous snake Python or the fight of Perseus with the winged snaked that threatened Andromeda.

We read in the Apocalypse (6) about the seven spirits called Elohim: “And I saw in the midst of the Throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of god, sent forth into all the earth.” Also in the Apocalypse of John (12:7-8) we find an interesting reference to the war in Heaven with the Dragon or Snake: “And there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels going forth to war with the Dragon; and the Dragon warred and his angels; and they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in Heaven.

The moon-god Jehovah gained a great victory over Lucifer like the Elohim chained Satan. We’d remember these things if we ask ourselves where do the names of the days come from: In the Jewish tradition, the Shabbat falls saturday; Saturday (Saturnday – meaning the transition from mineral to vegetal), Sunday (Sun-Day – day of the Sun) and Monday (Moon Day – day of the Moon). In Romanian sounds even closer: Luni-Luna (Monday, Moon); Marţi-Marte (Tuesday, Mars); Joi-Jupiter (Thursday, Jupiter); Vineri-Venus (Friday, Venus), etc.
