First Reference: Yeshua 52:35
For unto Yeshua was it appointed that he should reveal in secret the mysteries of the gnosis, even the hidden knowledge which God alone did know;
Causing that those which were appointed to receive might hold in trust for future ages the mysteries of Azraella; when the sons and daughters of light and glory did fiercely war against the Chief Demiurgos, even Yaldabaoth; shaking through most fearsome battles, the very gates of Heaven.
See: Antipode, Demiurge, Yaldabaoth
Summary: This title refers to Yaldabaoth, first of the Demiurge, Lord of Darkness, Father of Chaos, and the Nemesis of God and Heaven.
Thus did there leap forth out of the Depth, Yaldabaoth who would stand forever above all the Demiurge, being called the Chief Demiurgos.
For behold, I alone am Chief Demiurgos of matter unformed. Father of Chaos am I; for by my own power have I brought me forth out of the Abyss whose Depth I alone perceive.
I am he whose name is unspeakable, whose countenance unknowable, whose power is greater than any other; for Darkness and Depth have I created, and the glory of all lesser things have I weighed in the hand.
And Yaldabaoth answered, saying: “Father of Chaos, Lord of Darkness am I, even the Chief Demiurgos of the matter unformed; for I alone am the Self-Created One, for by my own power did I draw myself from the Abyss which you see gathered about you.
Behold, I am he whose name is unspeakable, whose countenance unknowable, possessing unto myself the only true power which is greater than any other; for Darkness and Depth have I created, whereby I might rule supreme throughout the halls of endless night.
