Top 5 Scary Demons You Should Never Summon – Part 4

August 12, 2019 100 By William Hollis


Alright guys – it’s pretty clear to see
that we’re going the distance when it comes to demonology, and the vast host of theological
entities that encompass the world of occultism. We’re at Part 4 now – that’s a whole council
worth of demons that you should probably just straight up avoid. Whatever your thoughts on the matter – when
it all boils down – these things are just straight up interesting – steeped in mysterious
magic and ancient writings from time lost civilizations. Well, I guess we better get started then,
eh? Hello horror fans – and once again, welcome
back to the scariest channel on YouTube – Top 5 Scary Videos – your heartfelt home for all
things horrifying. As always, I’ll be your humble host Jack
Finch – as we peer back into the abyss – and take a look at the Top 5 Scary Demons You
Should Never Summon – Part 4. Roll the clip. And that clip – for those of you that are
curious, was from 2005’s Constantine starring my guy Keanu Reeves. Pretty decent film, but even better graphic
novels – so if you enjoy demonology, you’ll enjoy John Constantine, Hellblazer even more. Before we kick off this list guys – make sure
to hit that thumbs up button, and if you stick around all the way till the end I’ll be
reading out some of your most creative comments from the past few days. Kicking off at Number 5 – Abraxas Who is perhaps one of the most mysterious
entities in the whole of the Demonic Goetia’s. Throughout ancient history, Abraxas is referred
to many times as an Archon, an Aeon, a demon – and even a god. In the ancient theology of Gnosticism – Abraxas
is continually referred to in the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit – as an Aeon,
a species of cosmic intrigue that inadvertently created the Demiurge – a mysterious malevolent
force of unknown intent. Abraxas really has been around for as long
as anyone can recall – and his mystic uncertainty is what guides his rank in the demonic hierarchy. In Jacques Collin de Plancy’s Infernal Dictionary
– Abraxas is labelled as the Supreme God of the Basilidians – a Gnostic sect that were
wiped out some time in the 4th century – and whose motivation in history is unclear. There are a series of mysterious relics left
behind though – a vast number of engraved stones, dubbed the Abraxas Stone’s – of
which purpose, no one really knows. Spooky. Coming in at Number 4 – Mammon Mammon – who takes up a role as one of the
seven princes of Hell – who in more interpretable terms make up the seven deadly sins – is the
demonic manifestation of greed. Mammon is widely considered to be a demon
of Syriac origin. As Peter Lombard, the Bishop of Paris stated
– riches are called by the name of a devil, namely Mammon, for Mammon is the name of a
devil by which name riches are called according to the Syrian tongue. Throughout many ancient texts, the word Mammon
crops up to describe an entity of greed and avarice. In John Milton’s Paradise Lost – Mammon
is referenced as a fallen angel who values earthly treasures over all other things. Later – in contemporary occultism – Collin
de Plancy describes Mammon in the Dictionnaire Infernal as Hell’s ambassador to England. Which – I’m not entirely sure if I’m insulted
or not. Either way – Mammon has cemented himself a
pretty kushty demonic existence by hoarding material wealth and corrupting others to do
the same. Next up at Number 3 – Agrat bat Mahlat Possibly the daughter or granddaughter of
Lilith – who we’ve covered here before, Agrat bat Mahlat is a prolific demon in Jewish
mythology. In Zoharistic Kabbalah – she is a queen of
demons, and one of the four sacred angels of sacred prostitution – who mated with the
archangel Samael, we’ll get to him later – and later became the four succubi. Her fellow demons and sisters are Lilith,
Naameh and Eisheth. In Rabbinic literature, she is known as the
dancing roof demon – haunting the air with her chariot and her train of eighteen messengers
of spiritual destruction. Which – is pretty heavy reading, I guess. Agrat bat Mahlat also occurs in ancient texts
as the mistress of the sorceresses – who communicated magical secrets to Amemar, a prominent sage
of Babylon. She’s also widely tied up in legends of
King David, where she bore him the son Asmodeus – king of the demons. Swinging in at Number 2 – Samael Who is a very interesting and oftentimes perplexing
figure in theology and demonology. Samael in Hebrew – is described as the Venom,
the Poison and the Blindness. He is an incredibly important figure in the
Talmud – where he is seen as the accuser, the seducer and the destroyer – and is often
regarded as both good and evil. Oh – and on top of that, he’s the archangel
of death. Pretty big boots to fill. It’s in the Kabbalah where his roots in
demonology begin though, where he is tied to the demon Lilith – the first of the succubi. With her – Samael created a host of demonic
children, including a son – the Sword of Samael – who you may known as Asmodai. In Gnosticism – Samael appears as the blind
god – and comprises one third of the demiurge. Often through Gnostic texts, he appears as
a lion-faced serpent – and is perhaps one of the oldest maligned references through
ancient scripture. And finally – at our Number 1 spot – Leonard And to be honest – I’ve been wanting to
cover this guy for quite some time, simply because of his name. Leonard. The antiquitous pronunciation, of course,
would be LEOnard – but, come on, it’s Leonard. Also known as Master Leonard, as laid out
in the Dictionnaire Infernal – is the grand-master of nocturnal orgies and demons. In folklore he is represented as a three-horned
goat with a darkened human face. He marks his initiates with one of his horns
– and is often considered the demonic representation of the goat. In demonology, infernal powers obtained from
the worship of Master Leonard range from metamorphosis, into monstrous animals – or even causing men
to fly as an incubus. It is often thought that Leonard is associated
with the iconography of Baphomet – or the Goat of Mendes, a figure worshiped allegedly
by the Templars. In scripture, he was worshipped at black banquets,
held in Leonard’s honor – where dead baby goats were eaten without salt and boiled with
reptiles to deliberately spoil the meat. I mean – that’s just a needless waste, really. Well – there we have it horror fans – Part
4 of the Top 5 Scary Demons You Should Never Summon. Before we depart, let’s read out some of
your greatest comments from the past few days. VRTXProductions says – If you’re gonna do
Lovecraftian games I hope y’all would include Darkest Dungeon. The narrator is phenomenal but the game overall
plays on many stories and themes. Well my good buddy – Darkest Dungeon is legit
my favourite roguelike game ever made, even more than XCom – and that’s saying something. If you’re a fan of gaming and Lovecraft,
I’d definitely recommend picking this one up. Those blackened arcades of antiquity. In regard to Worst Horror Remakes Part 2 – Grim
Explorations says – The thing should not be on this list, the thing was a prequel like
you said, if you have a better name for it other than The Thing – lets hear it. — Not The Thing. How’s that? Although, I agree – perhaps that was unfair. Like I said, it was a personal grudge. Well – there we have it folks, cheers for
sticking around all the way to the end. If you were a fan of this video, make sure
