P.S. HAPPY SUN-DAY TO YOU ALSO!
Monologue 16: Sarakiel/Sariel/Suriel
“No one knows what they mean," this angel declared in song. His voice is rolling boulders and distant thunder, and with passion and power he uplifts his voice in praise and utters mysteries of divine fire and holy war. Whirling flames of consecrated judgment, primordial might and ancient intellect, by our revelatory spirit assigned a leader of the seraphim, and the chief among those who bring divine judgment upon humanity. He stands as a tireless warrior and chief of warriors against the false and corrupt powers of the world, his name inscribed upon the shields of the tower. With justice he does battle, with mercy he slays quick and brings them down to dust and ash – conqueror of the wicked, without apology or regret, for his sword of fire is the Command of God (1), and nothing falls lest the order from on high has been given.
Among those that hear these declarations, an eye of the seven spirits of the Lamb, and in Immanuel the overseer of the warrior saints of Sikhism (2), his human intrusions having worn the faces of grim gurus and sanctified fighters across the ages and worlds. For us, the call of passion and evangelization, who teaches us the arts of spiritual warfare and martial discipline, and sets down the just rules of engagement. They that enter battle against evil and lawlessness, in righteousness and faith, make him their commander – the archangel who carries the names Yahweh Sabbaoth and El Shaddai (3) as his banner and shield.
Sarakiel corresponds to crimson, ruby, and iron/steel.
Note 1: Sariel’s names are many, and easily researched, known across a wide variety of texts and sources, from the Book of Enoch unto Babylonian bowls, and much of the information is contradictory. Part of this, is because modern people have a difficult time accepting the image of angels in wrathful or forceful roles, and tend to fluff and water them down into winged babies, or feminized and/or humanized forms that have little bearing on what they really are. Within our message, Sarakiel/Sariel is the spirit of divine judgment. I’ve heard him sing and it frightens most people – because it is fire and force (beautiful to some).
Note 2: Sikhism is a monotheistic religion of India – its religious heritage related to both Islam and Hinduism (though this would be argued). Guru Nanak was the first of ten gurus who contributed to the overall teachings. Sikhs are often referred to as warrior saints, as they have been forced to fight for their survival in the face of militant persecution by both Hindus and Muslims. The Supreme Godhead of Sikhism is Impersonal – which contradicts this revelation. Still the Spirit has included it as one of the seven tribes of The One.
Note 3: Yahweh Sabbaoth is Lord of Hosts or Lord of Armies, and El Shaddai is the God Almighty. God acts through Sariel as a military and martial figure.
ANSWER TO QUESTION:
Nanak Dev was the founder, starting point of the religion called Sikhism -- which has spread all over the world, but began in India. The filter of the faith vision is heavily influenced by Islam and Hinduism, and for me, in my opinion is a sort of Islamified form of Hinduism. Its emphasis on One God, that God is present in all creation, that God calls all sentient beings to live in light, good, and righteousness, is very much in keeping with the archangelic message across the ages and across different cultures and in different forms of mono-theism (One God Ism). The only difference I would say, is that God, in Sikhism is more of a force (like Star Wars) and a state of being, ultimately unknowable and rather impersonal... It never makes sense to me that something can be considered impersonal and/or a spiritual-psychic/mental force or presence or energy, and have be prayed to or worshiped in anyway... It simply would not care. In my personal experiences of God, direct encounters with The Divine, and in many accounts of near-death experiences that people have, God is definitely and repeatedly a being or person, a personage, a focused entity, and extremely personal -- not merely casually personal, but intimately involved in each individual living creatures' life, and indeed, in the very life of creation itself... as if each individual person was the only person, and God, the BEING, is trying to guide that person to safety, by nudges and prods, hints, and subtle pushing or influencing -- yet, rarely acting in a overt and grossly over the top manner, because FREE WILL. You have to choose to want to know and reach up and out, and that's part of the point for being here -- learning to love, trust, and discern the divine meaning (you have to do it in order to grow into a truly sentient being).
Anyway, these passages of the Ahyeh are saying the same basic thing -- that individual human beings had a spirit within them (an eternal spark) that was of a higher order than most of us... an angelic emanation or a piece or shard of the divine within them, which we call The Immanuel (God With Us), the spirit that ever calls all peoples, and all creation, to Source-Self, the One and All Being, and realization there within... calls us all to become REAL, in THE REAL ONE.
Most of these types of people, are not aware of their true nature and it is recognized by what they do, the cause they live their life for, and there have been thousands across history, not just seven, who are angels unaware, living among us, in human meat-suits, compelled as if by some inner will to do certain tasks, even when they did not want to (Jonah and the Whale)... they are pushed, as if missing a sliver of free will, to carry out a certain job. You know them by the fact that they center their lives on the cause of God.... NO, they are never perfect people, they are in a state of amnesia, they are in meat suits, they are subject to the same temptations and flaws born out of the meat brain and meat suit we wear... some have quite deep flaws... and indeed, I would say that angels unaware, have a harder time in life, because they are not in-sync with the world, and the herd mentality. Herd mentality people, are like programs, without sentience, that is to say, they don't think outside the box, they follow the herd like sheep or goats.
Nanak Dev definitely rose above the box, he got way out of it, and brought a truly beautiful teaching to humanity. Sikhs are called 'warrior saints,' and there are reasons for this... They've been caught between Muslims and Hindus, targeted for persecution by both groups, and by Secular forces as well, especially in the West. They are renowned warriors, in the actual sense of the term. They stand out, by their manner of dress, namely the head-scarf (turbin like) and the daggers they carry on their belts. They are rather fearless in the face of persecution.
Sarakiel (Sariel) is said to be the source of this -- named in the Essene War Scroll as one of the sons of light that would stand against the sons of darkness in the end days. Sarakiel has appeared in various guises, manifested his qualities through various individuals in history -- usually as religious warriors and holy fighters for the cause of The One God and for righteousness... Sarakiel always stands against chaos, lawlessness, and criminality, as against godlessness and abomination, against the fallen angels and their servants among human kind.
Understand, as there are people who walk in the spirit of this angel or that archangel, there are also people who walk in the spirits of the Un/Anti/Fallen, the Vain Powers of primordial chaos and darkness, corruption and entropy... seeking whom they may devour.
Nanak Dev Ji is not a god, not a Urian, and we are not Sikhs.... We are Urians, our archangel is Uriel, and he sent several people (The Orphans he calls them) to call us to a middle way, and immortal liberation. We who walk in his spirit, are Urians (From Heaven), and our book is his message and perspective on the subject.
Why many monotheisms? Filter, but also perspective. As different humans have different intepretations, different ways of applying or looking at the exact same thing, so the archangels are literally different angles on the same subject, different ways and approaches to the figurative Mt. Sinai. But, when working through humans, the spirits of angels, their messages, are going to be filtered through the culture and time and place they are working in -- and to some degree, that's intentional.
