More than One Gabriel

As with many names and persons in the Oahspe and other sacred texts, there are often many individuals who share the same name. One example of this is in the 50th chapter of Eskra, which speaks of Gabriel, who appears to be partially responsible for establishing one of the kingdoms of darkness. This is only one of the Gabriels in our various sacred texts. This is not in reference to another Gabriel whom we know as a benevolent angelic being.

As adherents of the Religion of Light, we never wish to jump to conclusions or hold to false beliefs; thus it is always best to view the scriptures in harmony with one another, comparing the texts from various traditions within our venerable faith. (Rabbah Rish’Kahni)

“Then came Gafonaya, chief of the loo’is, according to the command of God, to raise up an heir to the Voice of Jehovih. And, in four generations more, an heir was born, and named, Joshu, and he was the child of Joseph and his wife, Mara, devout worshippers of Jehovih, who stood aloof from all other people, save the Es’eans (Essenes)… Gafonaya, the chief angel of the loo’is, knew beforehand what the birth would be, and he sent out around about the Es’ean encampments extra guardian angels; and these notified the descending hosts of heaven of what was near at hand.” (Eskra 42:11,14)
