“And the fifth angel (Samael) sounded, and I saw a star (a fiery sparkling principle of Geburah) descend from (the) heaven (of Geburah) unto the earth (Malkuth, physicality): and to him (the life-force of Geburah) was given the key of (Scorpio, Yesod-Sex) the pit of the abyss.” - Revelation 9:1

The bottomless pit is the unfathomable abyss or chaos that is difficult or impossible to intellectually comprehend. There are three bottomless pits or unfathomable abysses or Chaos:

  1. Daath: the primeval Macrocosmic Chaos of the creative sexual force of the Word out of which - Kabbalistically – is explained how the universe is formed.
  2. Yesod: The venerable Microcosmic Chaos of sex out of which - Kabbalistically – is explained how the human being is formed. As above so below
  3. Klipoth: The inferior (Latin Infernus) Chaos where the devolving Egos dwell; hell. The subjective reasoning within the intellectual animal relates to this type of chaos where only disorder reigns. Obviously, the chaotic disorder of the subjective reasoning within this humanity is what creates the common and ordinary Karma.

The "key of the bottomless pit" represents the Great Arcanum (Yesod) that unlooses the mystery of the Abyss (Klipoth) and of the Tree of Knowledge (Daath) that was locked by the original sin. The Great Arcanum grants us the conscious comprehension of these three types of abysses.

Fornication (in Yesod) originated the ego, the devil that locked or trapped these Divine truths - placed in the consciousness - in the "bottomless pit" (Klipoth) for a season, yet, in the initiation, the ego, that is, Satan himself is locked in the "bottomless pit" (Klipoth) along with his lies and deceptions.

“And he (Samael, the life-force of Geburah) opened (Scorpio, Yesod-Sex) the pit of the abyss; and (released the doctrine of the Tree of Knowledge, Daath, Gnosis and) there arose a smoke, as the smoke (or evidence that the divine truth of Geburah was suppressed) out of a great furnace (out of the Scorpian passional fire of the sexual organs) of the pit (of Klipoth; the evidence-smoke of the furnace-fornication was broadly and clearly uncovered); and the sun (of religious understanding) and the air (of subjective reasoning) were darkened (detracted from authority or reputation) by reason of the (ardent libertine sexual appetite, whose) smoke (or evidence that the divine truth of Geburah was suppressed by fornication and adultery within the infraconsciousness in its dormant condition) of the pit (Yesod, sex).” - Revelation 9:2

“And there came out of the smoke (issued from the ardent libertine sexual appetite) locusts (fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah trapped, suppressed or restrained within the infraconsciousness) upon (Malkuth) the earth (physical body): and unto them (those fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah related to Kamaduro and Karmasaya within the infraconsciousness) was given (the karmic) power (by applying their poisonous karma of fornication and adultery), as the (zodiacal sign of) scorpions (of Geburah) of (the sexual force of Yesod in) the earth have (the karmic) power (of the fire of Samael through mental, emotional and physical sicknesses, which bring extreme karmic distress when the desire for healing cannot be attained).” - Revelation 9:3

“And (by Geburah, the law of karma) it was commanded them (these fiery sparking life-force principles of Samael) that they should not hurt (affect) the grass (discernment) of the earth (Egypt, the physical body), neither any green thing (spiritual longing), neither any tree (sensorial faculty); but only those (bestial) men which (trap, suppress or restrain the fiery sparkling life-force powers of Geburah, the consciousness through fornication and adultery and therefore) have not the seal of (the living) God (Shaddai-El-Chai, the Holy Spirit, Binah) in their foreheads (Netzach, minds).” - Revelation 9:4

“The following precept is to discuss the laws concerning locusts. We learned that fish (life-force principles of Chesed) and locusts (life-force principles of Geburah) do not require slaughter, but it is their gathering that makes it permissible to eat them. Such are the sages of the Secret Doctrine תורת סוד. They do not need slaughtering (by Abbadon אבדון) but it says of them, "and expired, and was gathered to his people" (Genesis 49:33). Just as the fish (the Nun נון of the Zera זרע, life-force principles of Chesed) of the sea live in the sea (of Yesod יסוד), so do the students of Kabbalah and the sages of the Secret Doctrine תורת סוד live in the sea (of Yesod יסוד), and if they are separated from the Kabbalah (the tree of life עצ החיים) they immediately die. (Such are) the crocodiles of the Secret Doctrine תורת סוד wherein grow the sea crocodiles. And if those who live on dry land, fall into the water (of Yesod יסוד), but cannot swim (cannot sublimate the Nun נון of their Zera זרע), they die. But 'Adam,' who are the Kabbalah (and the tree of life עצ החיים) sages (in Tiphereth תפארת) are above all. Of them it says, "and have dominion over the fish of the sea (the Nun נון of their Zera זרע in Yesod יסוד), and over the birds of the air (their consciousness in Tiphereth תפארת)" (Genesis1:28), who are the Secret Doctrine תורת סוד sages the crocodiles. The Great Leviathan (הלויתנין הגדול) is (Moses) "the flying serpent (נחש ברח)" (Isaiah 27:1) that corresponds to "the middle bar (בריח bariach) in the midst of the boards (Tiphereth תפארת)" (Exodus 26:28).” - Zohar

"And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat (transmuted his Geburah's life-force) locusts and wild honey (solar energy)." - Mark 1: 6

“And to them (these fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah) it was given (in Klipoth, Hell or Inferno) that (because of Kamaduro and Karmasaya) they should not kill them, but that they (their egotistical adulterous fornicator infraconsciousness) should be tormented five months (the fifth Sephirah, Geburah, Karma): and their (passional intensive karmic) torment was as the (intense emotional and mental sensible pain, burning, and swelling sensitive karmic) torment (produced) by a scorpion (as the fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah of the constellation of Scorpio that unchained the fire of all sexual appetites and desires in the lower abdomen), when he strikes (with Kamaduro and Karmasaya) a (fornicator) man (because of sexual violence).” - Revelation 9:5

“And in those (karmic) days (of Kali Yuga) shall (the fornicator) men (in the physical plane and in the abyss, Klipoth) seek (the second) death (annihilation of those sexual appetites who produce such a karma), and shall not find it; and shall desire to die (psychologically), and (because of Kamaduro and Karmasaya, the second) death shall flee from them.” - Revelation 9:6

“And the shapes of the locusts (or fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah trapped, suppressed or restrained within the infraconsciousness related with Kamaduro and Karmasaya) were like unto horses (or beasts like Centaurs, Maruts or hasnamussen) prepared unto battle (in order to satisfy their bestial appetite); and on their heads (which are seven: Lust, Anger, Pride, Envy, Greed, Gluttony and Laziness) were as it were crowns like gold (as if their Klipothic power were the divine authority of Kether), and their (hypocritical bestial) faces (in the physical plane) were as the faces of men (as if they were true human beings).” - Revelation 9:7

“And they (these hasnamussen) had hair (ideas, thoughts, dreams, political affairs, mental projections) as the hair of (a refined vain and conceited hypocritical) women (nourished with envy and false sweetness), and their teeth (painful intentions) were as the teeth of (the) lions (of the law, ready to puncture the flesh of its owner or its prey according to their Karma).” - Revelation 9:8

“And they (these hasnamussen or demons from Klipoth) had breastplates (premeditations), as it were breastplates (of righteousness) of iron (good will); and the sound (messages) of their wings (that get in motion based on the winds of Karma) was as the sound of chariots (organizations) of many horses (castes) running to battle (arguments, debates, wars).” - Revelation 9:9

"And they (these hasnamussen or demons from Klipoth) had tails (Kundabuffers) like unto scorpions (who kill and torment with their poisonous lustful power), and there were stings (weapons, inventions for mass destruction) in their tails (based on their Kundabuffer or demonic lustful power): and their (Karmic) power was to hurt (the fornicators) five months (until the Karma, Kamaduro and Karmasaya is fulfilled).”  - Revelation 9:10

"And they (these hasnamussen or demons from Klipoth) had a king (a Malachim) over them, which is (the fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah trapped in their Evil-Will, their Self-Willed-Ego, the beast, the negative aspect of Tiphereth, the fallen fire of Leo, the lion, the king of all beasts, who is) the angel (the Kaom, the messenger who executes the Will, the Karmic commands of Eloah-Va-Daath Jah-Chavah, Shiva-Shakti, the Holy Spirit, through Geburah) of the pit of the abyss (Yesod, sex, the fathomless abyss of the waters), whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon (who has also been identified as the angel of death and destruction, angel of the abyss, and king of hasnamussen or demons of the underworld hierarchy, where he is equated with the fiery sparking sexual forces of Geburah-Samael-Scorpio), but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon (Destroyer - Scorpio is a sign of water and Apollyon is the one who has the authority to release or seal up these locusts or fiery sparking life-force principles of Geburah, to open or shut the door of the waters’ fathomless abyss according to the commands of Samael. He is called king over them, not because he leads them but because - as a fiery sparking principle of Geburah-Samael trapped within them – has complete authority over them in accordance with the law)." - Revelation 9: 11

The book of Revelation equated Abaddon with Apollyon, and Cornelius Agrippa positioned him as the monarch in Klipoth, yon in the lower shadow of the Sephirah Tiphereth (Beauty) on the Kabbalistic Tree. Indeed, Tiphereth is governed by the Sun-Apollo (the Cosmic Christ) and the planet Venus-Aphrodite (Goddess of love and beauty).


Apollo and the beautiful Venusian Nymph Daphne the daughter of (the bloodstream) the river-god "Peneus"

Tiphereth relates to the Human Soul (Venus-Beauty) and the Heart (the Sun-Apollo) in the physical body. The bloodstream places the Astral Light (Apollo) “yon” Tiphereth-the Heart, there in Yesod-Sexual Organs (Ens Venerie - the entity of Venus; the semen is the venereal astral light liquefied in the sexual organs by the action of the bloodstream in the human organism).

The name Apollyon or Apollo-lion is the Gk. Apollo or Apollon, apo- "from, away from" + olluein “to drive away” "to destroy."

The Greek God Apollo is identified with Helion or Helios, the Sun God; so Helion is He-Lion, the Helicon, the luminescent solar light of Leo, the Lion.

The Greek word for lion is translated 'king' in Latin, because the lion is the king of all the beasts.

Lion is the solar light of the constellation of Leo, the solar fire “He That Tears Asunder.”

Thus, Apollyon is the fallen Tiphereth (the Malachim, the human soul, the psyche) that receives the Astral Solar Light of Apollo (Christ) through the heart, and who thereafter squanders through the sexual organs by means of fornication and adultery (Lilith and Nahemah – Evil Beauty), the negative aspects of Venus-Aphrodite (sexual force).

"There we see Abbadon, the angel of the Abyss, who suffers in the chains and bonds with which he martyrized others." - Occult Medicine and Practical Magic


As the deer panteth after the water brooks, so (in the sexual water brooks of Yesod) panteth my soul (Tiphereth) after thee, O God.

My soul (Tiphereth) thirsteth for God (in the sexual act), for the living God (Shaddai-El-Chai): when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears have been my meat day and night, while (from Klipoth) they (in the sexual act) continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

When (in the sexual act) I remember (Elah - Aleph, Lamed, Hei) these (letters that remind me the Divine Mother), I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with (Elah, my Goddess) them to the house of God (Malkuth - the physical body), with the voice of (sexual) joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday (Chastity).

Why art thou (sexually) cast down (to the sexual water brooks of Yesod), O my soul (Tiphereth)? and why (in the sexual act) art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for (in the sexual act) I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

O my God, my soul (Tiphereth) is (sexually) cast down (to the sexual water brooks of Yesod) within me (in Malkuth, the physical body): therefore (in the sexual act) will I remember thee from the land of Jordan (the sexual organs), and (spinal medulla, the land) of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar (the Brain).

Deep (Mayim venerable Microcosmic sexual waters’ fathomless abyss in Yesod) calleth unto deep (Schamayim primeval Macrocosmic waters’ fathomless abyss of the divine sexual spiritual forces in Daath) at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me (Tiphereth).

Yet Jah-Chavah (from Daath) will command his lovingkindness (Zauir Anpin - Chesed) in (Tiphereth, the Bridegroom) the daytime, and in the night (his Nukva) his song (his Bride) shall be with me (Tiphereth, the Bridegroom), and (in sexual alchemy) my prayer unto the God of my life (Shaddai-El-Chai).

I will say (in the sexual act) unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the (Klipothic) oppression  of the enemy (my  Lust, Satan, o-yave, the Ego in the sexual water brooks of Yesod)?

As with a sword in my bones, (from Klipoth) mine enemies (my egos) reproach me; while (in the sexual act) they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

Why art thou (sexually) cast down (to the sexual water brooks of Yesod), O my soul (Tiphereth)? and why art thou (sexually) disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for (in the sexual act) I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. - Psalm 42

As described in Revelation, Apollyon (the fallen Tiphereth) opens the gates of the abyss (Klipoth) and unleashes upon the earth his swarms of lustful demons “locusts,” who then proceed to torture those of mankind who do not bear the seal of God (chastity) upon their forehead. After that, (by means of the Great Arcanum) he (Tiphereth, the Human Soul – Willpower - Thelema) is supposed (with the help of Apollo - Christ) to seize Satan himself, bind him and toss him into the bottomless pit (Klipoth) for a thousand years, as follows:

And I saw an angel (Samael) come down from (the) heaven (of Daath), having the key of (the Great Arcanum of) the bottomless pit (of Yesod) and a great chain (or evidence of recurrent karmic events) in his hand (in order to give – Hebrew, Ratzon Latet, will to give – that is, to chastise according to the law).  Revelation 20: 1

And (therefore, according to the law of karma) he laid hold on the (black) dragon (the ego, Lilith and Nahemah, the shadow of Aphrodite-Venus, the evil beauty - the fallen Tiphereth, the human soul that fell because) that old (Kundabuffer) serpent, which is the Devil (the lustful mind, Kain), and Satan (the adversary of the Innermost in Malkuth-physical body), and (with knowledge - Gnosis) bound him (in Klipoth- Hell) a thousand years (until the creation of “Ishim” the human being into the image of God). Revelation 20: 2

And cast him (the ego, the shadow of Aphrodite-Venus, the evil beauty - the fallen Tiphereth, the human soul) into the bottomless pit (of Klipoth), and shut him up, and set a seal (the seal of chastity) upon him, that he should deceive the nations (souls of God) no more, till the thousand years (during which the human being into the image of God is created) should be fulfilled: and after that he (as the ego, Lilith) must be loosed a little season (in Yetzirah, the world of formation and of Angels). Revelation 20: 3

And I saw thrones (central nervous system in Assiah – Physical Bodies), and they (the Ishim or human beings into the image of God) sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them (the Ishim) that (through the initiations of fire) were beheaded for the witness of Jesus (the atom Nous), and for the word of God (or knowledge from Aun Weor), and which had not worshipped the beast (their ego), neither his image (subjective reasoning), neither had received his mark (or egotistical bestial reasoning) upon their foreheads (minds), or in their hands (Ratzon Latet, will to give); and they lived and reigned (as human beings into the image of God) with Christ (INRI) a thousand years (in Assiah – their Physical Bodies).  Revelation 20: 4

But the rest of the (living) dead (or egos of Lilith) lived not again until the thousand years (or esoteric time to dissolve the egos of Nahemah) were finished. This is the first (initiatic) resurrection (when - Geburah or Divine Soul and Gedulah or Innermost – the Monad reincarnate in Malkuth – Physical Body).  Revelation 20: 5

Blessed and holy is he (the Ishim or human being into the image of God) that hath part in the first resurrection (in Assiah – Physical Body): on such the second death (of Klipoth) hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign (as reincarnated Masters) with him a thousand (esoteric) years (in Assiah– Physical Body). - Revelation 20:6

"One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter." - Revelation 9:12
