The Nag Hammadi Library and the Identity of the DemiUrge and the Gnostic Father God – Final Analysis

There is more to the Nag Hammadi then just a hard to understand philosophy of concepts that are characterized as male or female in nature.
  There is a story of reincarnation hidden in the writings of this library.  After taking a second look at the father of Jesus Christ, I am more than sure that it is Zeus and Jesus Christ is the reincarnation of Dionysus-Osiris/Zagreus.  I believe this due to what is written in the library:

I visited a bodily dwelling.  I cast out the one who was in it first, and I went in.  And the whole multitude of the archons became troubled.  And all the matter of the archons as well as all the begotten powers of the earth were shaken when it saw the likeness of the image since it was mixed.

I revealed that I am a stranger to the regions below.

The Nag Hammadi Library, The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, pages 363-364.

What he is saying is that he cast out the spirit that was in the body he took over when he, Jesus Christ, incarnated on the Earth.

But they, the archons, those of the place of Yaldabaoth, reveal the realm of the angels, which humanity was seeking in order that they may not know the Man of Truth.  For Adam, whom they had formed appeared to them.  And a fearful motion came about throughout their entire dwelling, lest the angels surrounding them rebel.  For without those who were offering praise – I did not really die lest their archangel became empty.

The Nag Hammadi Library, The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, pages 364.

For Adonaios knows me because of hope.  And I was in the mouths of lions.  And the plan which they devised about me to release their Error and their senselessness – I did not succumb to them as they had planned.  But I was not afflicted at all.  Those who were there punished me.  And I did not die in reality but in appearance, lest I be put to shame by them because these are my kinsfolk.  I removed the shame from me and I did not become fainthearted in the face of fear, and I suffered according to their sight and thought, in order that they may never find any word to speak about them.

The Nag Hammadi Library, The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, pages 365.

This treatise goes on to talk about how Adam all the way to John the Baptist was a laughingstock since none knew Jesus Christ but all were a product of the Hebdomad (ruling angels with the DemiUrge).

For they had a doctrine of angels to observe dietary laws and bitter slavery, since they never knew truth, nor will they know it.  For there is a great deception upon their soul making it impossible for them ever to find a Nous of freedom in order to know him until they come to know the Son of Man.  Now concerning my Father, I am he whom the world did not know, and because of this, it (the world) rose up against me and my brothers.  But we are innocent with respect to him; we have not sinned.

For the Archon was a laughingstock because he said, “I am god, and there is none greater than I.  I alone am the Father, the Lord, and there is no other beside me.  I am a jealous God, who brings the sins of the fathers upon the children for three and four  generations.”  As if he had ‘become stronger than I and my brothers.  But we are innocent with respect to him, in that we have not sinned since we mastered his teaching.  Thus he was an empty glory. And he does not agree with our Father.  And thus through our fellowship we grasped his teaching, since he was vain and an empty glory.  And he does not agree with our Father, for he was a laughingstock and judgment and false prophecy.

The Nag Hammadi Library, The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, pages 369.

The apostles were praying because the authorities wanted to kill them. They asked for help and light appeared to them on the mountain and lit up the whole place.

Then a great light appeared so that the mountain shone from the sight of him who had appeared.  And a voice called out to them saying “Listen to my words that I may speak to you.  Why are you asking me?  I am Jesus Christ who am with you forever.”

Then the apostles worshipped again saying, “Lord tell us: In what way shall we fight against the archons, since the archons are above us?”

Then a voice called out to them from the appearance saying,  

“Now you will fight against them in this way, for the archons are fighting against the inner man.  And you are to fight against them in this way:  Come together and teach in the world the salvation with a promise.  And ‘you gird yourselves with the power of my Father, and let your prayer be known.  And he, the ‘Father, will help you as he has helped you by sending me.  Be not afraid, I am with you forever, as I previously said to you when I was in the body.”  Then there came lightning and thunder from heaven, and what appeared to them in that place was taken up to heaven.

Some may see this as a UFO experience, others may see it as a Shamanic experience.  Remember, he was a spirit that took form in the flesh.  Lastly, this is the paragraph that confirms my suspicions of Jesus Christ being the reincarnation of Dionysus-Osiris:

He spoke thus:  Our illuminator, Jesus, came down and was crucified.  And he bore a crown of thorns.  And he put on a purple garment.  And he was crucified on a tree and he was buried in a tomb.  And he rose from the dead.  My brothers, Jesus is a stranger to this suffering.  But we are the ones who have suffered through the transgression of the mother. And because of this, he did everything like us.  For the Lord Jesus, the son of the immeasurable glory of the Father, he is the author of our life.  My brothers, let us therefore not obey these lawless ones and walk in …
The Nag Hammadi Library, The Letter of Peter to Philip, Pages 435-437.

Who else wore the purple robe and could be considered androgynous due to having to dress like a girl as a child to hide from Hera?  The answer is Dionysus.

Whatever these spirits/entities are they are able to come and go from a fleshly body and they are able to affect  the physical world.   Some may say they are aliens, but I tend to now lean towards an entity in another dimension.

One last thing, Zeus was also associated with forethought when he introduced Pandora into Prometheus’ bloodline after Prometheus introduced burnt offering to the humans.
Thus Zeus, knowing deathless plans, spoke and mocked him.

But crooked-minded Prometheus answered him, gently

Smiling and did not forget his deceitful craft:

“Zeus, most famed and greatest of eternal gods, take of these whichever the spirit within tells you,”

He spoke with the trick in mind; but Zeus knowing deathless plans, knew and did not miss the trick; in his heart

He foresaw evils which were going to happen to mortal men.

Hesiod, Theogony & Works and Days, Page 44.

Here is my final summary of the characters in the Nag Hammadi Library:

Jesus Christ – The reincarnation of Dionysus-Osiris
His Father – Zeus
DemiUrge – Cronus
Satan – Lucifer (not mentioned in the Nag Hammadi but is one of the Archons) – Prometheus
Archons – The Eloim or followers of Cronus or other Titans. (The Greys who are ugly)
