Occurrences: 13

First Reference:  Enlightenment 1:25

 

So it came about that there sat beside the Chasm which divided the lesser light from the greater, a dark and brooding presence, even Yaldabaoth, Father of Chaos, Lord of Darkness.

 

 

See:  Demiurge, Nemesis, Yaldabaoth


Summary:  The “Father of Chaos” is a title designating the Nemesis of God and Heaven, known as Yaldabaoth, Chief Demiurgos of the matter unformed (1:6:19).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

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.

Enlightenment 1:34-35

 

Thus would I create from the Antipode, the very enemy of God, possessing unto himself a purpose and identity peculiar to himself, being made forever the Chief Demiurgos, Lord of Darkness, Father of Chaos; having in his soul an endless thirst for that darker glory which he alone can see.

1st Endowment 5:20
 

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.

For I am Dominion, dark and dreadful to behold, making subject unto my greater will the strongest of all the mighty; for I alone am made Father unto thee. Serve me therefore, and live or else I shall destroy you altogether.”

1st Endowment 6:19-21

 

And with a mighty and terrible roar, Yaldabaoth declared throughout the fartherest reaches of the cosmos, saying: “I am Yaldabaoth, Chief Demiurgos of the matter unformed; being forever in all, through out, and before all, even the Father of Chaos am I.

Holding in my hand the only true power; being in my soul both dark and dreadful, both swift and sudden, destroying utterly the hope of all creation; for I am Dominion, the only terror, possessing neither visage nor countenance, having neither shape nor form, being ever boundless and immeasurable.

1st Endowment 7:9-10
