This would make an "archon exousia aer" the chief of that which comes from the essences of the air. >diabolos - false accuser, devil Interesting, I had thought that, at least in Spanish, "El Diabolo" meant "the double-eater" (who devoured body and soal). Is this a mystical pun? >exousia skotos - the dark force [shades of star wars] Actually, it probably means "that which comes from the essense of 'darkness'". Darkness being only one translation of "skotos". The word also had connotations of uncleaness, feces (from which we get the term scotophilia), etc. © 1996 firstname.lastname@example.org (Bryan J.

Maloney) writes: > email@example.com (Paul Harvey) writes: > > diabolos - false accuser, devil > Interesting, I had thought that, at least in Spanish, "El Diabolo" meant >"the double-eater" (who devoured body and soal). Is this a mystical pun? dia (across) + bolos (throw) is the Greek and Latin derivation of diabolos. Latin word play: di (double) + abolere (abolish). From what I could figure out, the word abolish only comes from Latin, it does not go back to a Greek word and even if there is a word, it is not used in the Biblical texts. So it looks like the double-eater double entendre only applies to Latin and Romance languages. It does have a certain - um, j'ne sais quoi to it. Of course it doesn't really compare to the roma backwards is amor of langue d'Oc. © 1996 firstname.lastname@example.org (Paul Harvey) and © 1996 reficul (email@example.com) ------------------------------------------ THE DEMONS GOG AND MAGOG [and you thought those TV-ministers made this up?] Revelatyions 20:7 (NRSV) When the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison (8) and will come out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, in order to gather them for battle; they are as numerous as the sands of the sea.
