Shecklas

 

Pronunciation:  SHEHK-luhs

Occurrences:  2

First Reference:  Enlightenment 7:19

 

Hear then the truth, and consider deeply the light which in the darkness shines; for well is it said of you that you are ‘Shecklas’, Father of Ignorance and vain deceit, the Blinded One which fear and hate have filled with strong delusion.

 

 

See:  Demiurge, Jehovah-Yahweh

 

Summary:  During a confrontation between Sophiel and Jehovah-Yahweh, Sophiel refers to the Demiurge prince as “‘Shecklas’, Father of Ignorance and vain deceit, the Blinded One” (E:7:19).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

A similar name, “Saklas”, is found among ancient texts of the Nag Hammadi library. The name is one of many used in these texts to identify a Demiurgic power or being. (See: “Apocryphon of John”, “Gospel of Judas”, “Trimorphic Protennoia”.)

17. “Give ear, Jehovah-Yahweh, and to all my words attend, for I am Sophiel of El Shaloah, even the Holy Spirit which is come forth from the presence of God, and by your great boasting and many pretensions am I drawn nearer still.

18. Behold, Spirit of Truth am I, great comfort and hidden wisdom from my bosom flows; and by a power beyond your own am I made to stand before you; for in my right hand have I established truth in place of falsehood, and in my left have I ordained comfort and healing unto the children of men.

19. Hear then the truth, and consider deeply the light which in the darkness shines; for well is it said of you that you are ‘Shecklas’, Father of Ignorance and vain deceit, the Blinded One which fear and hate have filled with strong delusion.

20. Come then, and of your power speak, for even now do I stand unharmed before you; and the might and terror of which you boast is like the gentle wind which does lightly stir about.

21. Where, O Shecklas, is the power of which you are ever boasting; for still do I stand, in calmness, before the fury of your might, neither have vain imaginations caused me to tremble.”

Enlightenment 7:17-21
