FOURTH BOOK OF PISTIS SOPHIA
And Mary continued saying to Jesus: "How are the outer darkness, or rather, how many regions of punishment are divided?"
From the dragon of outer darkness.
And Jesus responded saying to Mary: "The outer darkness is made up of a great dragon that has a tail in its mouth, is located outside the world and around the world, and in them there are many regions of punishment. It has twelve enormous dungeons of punishment and there is an archon in each dungeon whose faces are different from each other. "
From the archons of the twelve dungeons with their names.
"And the first archon who is in the first dungeon, has a crocodile face with his tail in his mouth. From his jaws comes all the ice, all the rot and all the cold and different diseases. This archon is called by his authentic name like "Enchtonin".
"And the archon in the second dungeon has a real cat face. In his region he is called" Charachar. "
"And the archon in the third dungeon has a real dog face. In his region he is called" Archaroch. "
"And the archon who is in the fourth dungeon, has an authentic snake face. This is called in his region as" Achrochar. "
"And the archon who is in the fifth dungeon, has an authentic black bull face. This is called in his region as" Marchur. "
"And the archon who is in the sixth dungeon, has an authentic wild boar face. This is called in his region as" Lamchamor. "
"And the archon who is in the seventh dungeon, has a real bear face. This is called in his region" Fight. "
"And the archon in the eighth dungeon has an authentic vulture face. In his region he is called" Laraoch. "
"And the archon found in the ninth dungeon, his true face is that of a basilisk. This is called in his region as" Archooch. "
"And in the tenth dungeon are a multitude of archons. Each of them has seven dragon heads as their true faces. And the one above all is known in his region as" Xarmaroch. "
"And in the eleventh dungeon are a huge crowd of archons. Each of them has seven cat heads on their true faces. And the greatest of all is called" Chremaor "in his region.
From the gates of the dungeons.
"These archons of the twelve dungeons they are within the dragon of outer darkness. Each and every one of them changes their names every hour as well as their faces. Each of these dungeons also has a door that opens upwards, thus the dragon of outer darkness has twelve dark dungeons and each dungeon has a door that opens upwards. "
The angels who watch the doors.
"And an Angel from on high watches each of the dungeon gates - whom LEW, the First Man, the Watcher of Light, the Envoy of the First Commandment, has appointed as watchmen for the Dragon, and the archons of the dungeons that are with him, cannot mutiny. "
After the Savior said this, Mary Magdalene replied saying: "My Lord, will the souls introduced into that region be passed through the twelve gates of the dungeons according to the judgment that each one deserves?"
Which souls enter the dragon and how.
The Savior replied saying to Mary: "No soul will be brought into the Dragon through those doors, except those of the blasphemers and those who are in the doctrines of error as well as those who teach the doctrines of error, those who have sexual intercourse with men, those tainted and ungodly, atheists and murderers, adulterers and sorcerers and all those souls who do not repent while they are alive and persistently remain in their sins and all souls who have been left behind outside, - that is to say those who have completed the number of returns assigned to them in the sphere without repentance, - on their last lap these souls and all the souls I have told you about, will be pulled from the jaws of the dragon's tail and brought into the dungeons of outer darkness, and when those souls have been led from outer darkness to the jaws of their tails, the dragon will turn that towards its mouth and devour them. Thus will the souls be led into outer darkness "
The nature of dragon names
"And the dragon of outer darkness has twelve authentic names on its doors, one name on each of the dungeon doors. And the twelve names are different from each other, but the twelve are contained in each other, so that if a name is pronounced they are all pronounced. This I will tell you in the expansion of the Universe. This is how the outer darkness is formed, -that is, the dragon. "
When the Savior said this, Mary responded by saying, "My Lord, the dragon's punishments, then, are much more terrible than the punishments of the judgments?"
Of the severity of the dragon's punishments.
The Savior responded saying to Mary: "Not only are they more painful compared to all the punishments of the trials, but the souls that are led to that region will be frozen in the violent cold, in the hail and in the terrible fire that this region, but also in the dissolution of the Universe, that is, in the ascension of the Universe, those souls will perish because of the violent cold and the terrible fire ceasing to exist forever. "
Mary responded by saying: "Woe to the souls of sinners! Tell us, my Lord, is the fire of the world of humanity more burning than the fire of the Amente?
Of the degrees of the fire of the punishments.
The Savior responded by saying to Mary: "Truly I say to you: The fire in the Amente is nine times more burning than the fire in the world of humanity.
" And the fire of the punishments of the great chaos is nine times more violent than the fire in the Amente. "
"And the fire in the punishments of the archons who are in the middle path is nine times more violent than the fire of the punishments in the great chaos."
"And the fire in the dragon of the outer darkness and in all the punishments that are in it, is seventy times more violent than the fire of all the punishments and all the judgments of the archons that are in the middle path."
The disciples mourn the fate of sinners.
And when the Savior said this to Mary, she struck her chest and together with all the disciples wept and sobbed exclaiming: Woe to the sinners, because their punishments are excessively numerous!
Mary came forward, prostrated herself on the feet of Jesus and kissing them said: "My Lord, be patient with me and do not be angry because it bothers you so often, because from now on my questions about all things will be with determination."
The Savior responded to Mary saying: "Ask all the things that you wish to ask that I will reveal to you openly and without similarities."
Mary asks Jesus again.
Mary responded saying, "My Lord, if a righteous man has performed all the mysteries and has an ungodly friend who has committed all kinds of sins and deserves to be cast into outer darkness, and he has not repented having completed the number of returns in body changes and besides he has not done anything useful and leaves his body. If we know for sure that he has sinned and that he deserves to be thrown into outer darkness, what can we do for him to save him from the punishment of the dragon of the outer darkness and deserve a suitable body that allows you to find the mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, be worthy, ascend and inherit the Kingdom of Light? "
How to save the souls of sinners.
The Savior responded to Mary saying: If a sinner deserves to be cast into outer darkness and has sinned according to the punishments of the rest of the punishments and has not repented, or a sinner who has completed his number of returns in the changes of bodies and has not repented, - said men, if they come out of their bodies and are led into outer darkness and you wish to save them from the punishments of outer darkness and from all judgments and to be deposited in suitable bodies so that they may find the mysteries of the Light and manage to ascend and inherit the Kingdom of the Light, - execute the same mystery of the Ineffable which forgives sins always, and when you have finished realizing that mystery, decide then:
A summary of the formula.
"The soul of this man whom I esteem, - whether he is in the region of the punishment of the outer darkness dungeons or if he is in any of the other punishments of the outer darkness dungeons or the rest of the punishments of the dragon, -that he be removed from all of them. And he has completed his number of returns in the changes of bodies, that he be brought before the Virgin of Light so that he may be sealed with the seal of the Ineffable and can be deposited in any month, in a suitable body that allows you to find the mysteries of the Light, be worthy, ascend and inherit the Kingdom of Light. And if you have also completed the circuit of body changes, that soul will be brought before the seven virgins of the Light that is established above baptisms, and they will apply them to the soul and seal it with the sign of the kingdom of the Ineffable and will lead it within the orders of the Light. "
"This you will say when you execute the mystery."
"Amen I say to you: The soul for which you pray, if indeed it is in the dragon of the outer darkness, this will withdraw the tail from its mouth and let it out. And if it is in the regions of the judgments of the archons, amen I tell you: the receivers of Melchizedek will snatch it, either because the dragon releases it or because it is in the judgments of the archons; in a word, the receivers of Melchizedek will snatch it out of all the regions in which it is found and lead it to the Middle region before the Virgin of Light who will examine her and observe the sign of the Kingdom of the Ineffable that she carries with her. "
"And if she have not yet completed her number of returns in the changes of the soul, or in the changes of the body, the Virgin of Light will seal it with a special seal and in any month will have it poured into a suitable body that finds the mysteries of the Light, so that it may be worthy and continue towards the heights of the Kingdom of Light.
"And if that soul has completed its number of returns, the Virgin of Light will then examine it and will not punish it because it has completed its number of turns, but she will hand it over to the seven Virgins of Light. And the seven Virgins of Light will examine her, baptize her with their baptisms and give her the spiritual anointing and lead her to the Treasury of Light placing her in the last order of Light until the ascension of all perfect souls. And when you prepare to separate the veils of the region from those of the Right, you will cleanse that soul again and purify it by placing it on the orders of the first savior who is in the Treasury of Light. "
Mary advocates for those who have neglected the mysteries.
And Mary continued saying to the Savior: "My Lord, if a man has received the mysteries of the Light that are in the first space outside, when the time of those mysteries has been fulfilled, and this man continues to receive the mystery of all the mysteries that they are inside the mysteries that he has already received and that he has neglected and stopped saying the prayer that removes the badness of food and that he eats and drinks and because of the badness of those foods has been linked to the wheel of the destiny of the archons, and because of the impure elements that imposed it, he has sinned again, after the time when the mystery has been fulfilled; since he has neglected to pronounce the prayer that removes the evil from souls and purifies them. ; and this man has left the body without repentance, without having received again the mysteries of the mysteries that are within the mysteries that he has already received, those that are received once more, when one repents entity so that sins are forgiven. And when he came out of the body we have known with certainty that he was cast into the midst of the dragon of outer darkness for the sins he has committed. And this man has no help in the world or any compassionate person who can execute the mystery of the ineffable so that he can be removed from the midst of the dragon of outer darkness and be taken to the Kingdom of Light. Tell us my Lord, what will he do to save himself from the outer darkness? My Lord, do not abandon him since he has suffered in the persecutions and in all the divinity in which he finds himself. Oh my Lord, do not abandon him since he has suffered in the persecutions and in all the divinity in which he finds himself. Oh my Lord, have mercy on me, so that none of our loved ones are in a similar case, have mercy on all the souls that are in that situation since it is you who has the key that opens and closes the Universe, and it is your mystery that contains everything. Oh! Have mercy on those souls who have spoken your mysteries in a single day, and have truly believed in your mysteries without hypocrisy. Oh! Grant them the gift of your goodness and the rest of your mercy. "
When Mary said this, the Savior proclaimed her greatly blessed by the words she had spoken and with great compassion he said to her:" To all the men who are in the situation you have mentioned, while they are alive, give them the mystery of one of the twelve names of the dungeons of the outer darkness dragon, those that I will give you when I have finished explaining the emanation of the Universe from the inside to the outside and from the outside to the inside. "
Of the virtue of the twelve names of the twelve Angels.
"And all those who find the mystery of one of the twelve names of the dragon of outer darkness and who, even being great sinners, have received the mysteries of the Light and have transgressed with sin or have not performed any mystery; if they have completed their cycles of change and if they leave the body without repentance and are led to the punishments that are in the midst of the dragon of darkness and remain in the cycles and punishments in the midst of the dragon, - if they know the mystery of one of the twelve names of Angels while they are alive and in the world and if they pronounce one of their names while they are in the midst of the dragon's punishments, - the moment they pronounce it, the dragon will be shaken with the greatest convulsions and the door of the dungeon in which these men are located will open itself upwards in the archon of said dungeon and will launch them from there because they have found the mystery of the dragon's name. "
The souls who know the names escape and are brought to LEW.
"And when the archon expels such souls, immediately the Angels of LEW, the First Man, who guards the dungeons of that region, snatch them to lead them before LEW, the First Man, who sees them and examines them and finds that they have completed their turns and it is not lawful to bring them back to the world because it is against the law to send to the world souls that have already been thrown into outer darkness. But if those souls have not completed their number of returns in body changes, the recipients of LEW preserve them until they realize the mystery of the Ineffable for them and change them into a suitable body that finds the mysteries of the Light and inherits the Kingdom of Light. "
Of his subsequent fate.
"But if LEW examines them and finds that they have not completed their laps or returns and that it is not in accordance with the law to return them back to the world, and that also the sign of the Ineffable is not with them, then LEW takes pity on them and the leads before the seven Virgins of the Light. They baptize them with their baptisms although they do not give them the spiritual anointing and lead them to the Treasury of the Light, but they do not place them in the hierarchies of the Heritage, because they do not have the sign or the seal of the Ineffable, yet save them from all punishment by putting them in the Treasure Light, separated and set apart until the ascension of the Universe. And the moment they tear the veils from the Treasure of the Light, they purify those souls and purify them again, giving them the mysteries again and placing them in the last hierarchy that is in the Treasury so that they may be saved from all the punishments of trials. "
And when the Savior said this, he added: "Have you understood the way I have spoken to you?"
Mary interprets the same thing from an old saying.
Then Mary responded saying: "My Lord, this is the word that you have said to us in a similar way before:" Make friends with Mammon the Unjust, so that if you have to stay behind, he can receive you in his eternal tabernacles. "And who is Mammon the Unjust but the dragon of the outer darkness? This is the word: He who understands the mystery of one of the names of the dragon of the outer darkness, if he remains behind in the outer darkness or has completed the returns of the body changes and pronounces the name of the dragon, will be saved from darkness and will be received in the Treasury of Light. This is the word my Lord. "
The Savior responded again saying to Mary: "Well said, Mary, pure and spiritual. That is the solution of the word."
