An Angel Named Armoni : Sorcerers Then and Now
What would the world do if no one could any longer deny some uncomfortable information? How would people respond to knowing – without the ability to ignore it – that something which seemed so necessary to their lives had been introduced to Earth by a being who had opposed the Creator?
If information which had such deadly potential and consequences that the Creator has not only punished the rebel who brought it here, but has utterly condemned it’s use among mankind, has craftily become the normal way of things in the world, shouldn’t anyone want to know?
The book of Enoch, called 1 Enoch, describes a list of chiefs of angelic rebels and the area of knowledge which they possessed and taught to mankind.
It is not difficult for believers in YHWH to agree that Azazel teaching warfare to humanity was harmful to them, or that Barakyel, who taught what seems to be a description of divination by stars taught a forbidden thing.
There might be few who call themselves Christians who have a life which relies on things like warfare and astrology, but then there is one named Armers or Armoni, and this one, it is written, taught the remedies of sorcery. (1 Enoch 8:4)
This too, could be cause for little concern for those who understand sorcery as being some sort of long abandoned practice of magic, conjuring demons or casting spells, but this is a misunderstanding.
The name of this one fallen chief of the Watchers becomes the key to understanding what it is he really brought to earth and how it infects the whole world today perhaps more than ever.
The name Armoni or Harmoni is a derivative of the same word which the mountain of the Watchers descent (Hermon) is from: charam, which means a thing devoted or a thing dedicated to destruction, a curse or an oath.
The Greek manuscript of 1 Enoch renders this name: Pharmaros.
Pharmaros became the root of Greek words such as Pharmakeia, Pharmakon and Pharmakeus or Pharmakos, these likewise became the roots of English words like pharmacology and pharmaceutical and pharmacist.
The definition of the Greek words does not differ at all from the definitions of the English words which grew out of them.
Pharmakeia meant the making and the use of drugs, pharmakon meant drugs, and pharmakeus or pharmakon meant a druggist.
Scripture is very clear about YHWH’s view on the practice of pharmacology, it could not be made any more obvious that He despises its practice and looks unfavorably on those who would use “pharmakon”.
What has made the realizing of this difficult for readers of the canon of the bible, or even readers of 1 Enoch, is that in both instances the translations into English render the practice “sorcery”.
“And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries (pharmakeia) or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
– Revelation 9:21
“The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth. For by your sorcery (pharmakeia) all the nations were deceived”
– Revelation 18:23
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers (pharmakeus), image worshippers, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
– Revelation 21:8
“But outside are dogs and sorcerers (pharmakon) and sexually immoral and murderers and image worshippers, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”
– Revelation 22:15
We must make note that there is no distinction to be made that there is a difference between a use of these cursed things and the abuse of them.
It simply would make no sense to try to make such distinction where there is absolutely no basis in the text to do so, and no logical reasoning behind it either.
The whole world of this present age is devoted to relying on, profiting from, and consuming sorcery – which is nothing more, and has never been anything more, than the unnatural chemical concoctions which are made and prescribed for every sort of illness real and imagined, under the sun – otherwise known as drugs.
Scripture does not mention good ones as opposed bad ones, it does not mention too much as opposed to a an acceptable amount or a good reason as opposed to a less good reason to use them. It simply condemns them entirely.
What the world has been taught – which is part of a great lie to destroy spiritual understanding as well as physical health – is the following:
1 – That present day pharmacology is new and modern and a mark of human achievement.
2- That sorcery is a mystical and ancient practice which has nothing to do with physical applications or components.
3- That humanity was generally sicker, weaker and had shorter lives before the use of drugs as remedies became commonplace.
4- That there are some diseases which can only be treated with pharmaceuticals and anything else would be less effective or not effective at all.
5- That drugs are generally safe, or they would not be made available to people to use.
6- That living a life without drugs is impossible or at least will be a short life full of ailments.
What people do not realize is that this art of creating compounds of unnaturally combined chemicals, elements and isolates, originates before the great flood, and became ever after part of a body of secret knowledge which elite societies and mystery schools have kept – and they, if not the public, understand to this day that this is the root of that practice which has taken over the whole world.
Ancient Egyptians and Babylonians understood and practiced pharmacology and the link that it has with the beings that were worshiped as deities in their cultures (fallen angels) was obvious in the fact that these practices were taught and learned in temples and by priests.
Remedy has always been the focus of pharmacological medicine, as can be seen in the description of the Watcher who taught it (“Armers taught the remedies of sorcery”) and can be seen still in how it is used today.
Remedies, never prevention, because a prevention does not allow for the profit of those who make remedies. Compare this medicinal method to what is taught in the Word of YHWH. Guidelines in how to remain clean, laws regarding the touching of dead things or of the dead touching that which is used or eaten, the separation of the ill from the well – all of these things are preventative, which real medicine should always aim to be.
Asclepius : Vatican Museum
The physicians of ancient Greece were dedicated to the deity which represented remedies – Asclepius, who’s shrines were the centers of the medical practice of that culture.There they performed surgeries and even used anesthetic.
Spiritualism, and a connection with forces which operate outside of the human physical world – gods, angels and demons – have always been connected to pharmacology in the traditions of those who have practiced it. It is no different today.
The original Hippocratic oath begins this way:
“I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:”
It is maybe no coincidence that an oath sealed the decision of the rebel Watchers to co-mingle with human women, and to teach forbidden knowledge to them, or that the Watcher who specifically taught pharmacology is himself named in reference to an oath or devoted thing. Today an oath is still a part of becoming a practitioner of modern medicine.
