For 19 years, I have always asked myself this question, “who is the most evil person in this world?” Well, some might say Hitler, Ferdinand Marcos, or some other politician. But, I thought I will never meet the most evil person in this world. But, as one matures, there will always be a Hitler in their life–though not literally. I think that is part of life that one must at least meet a person who symbolizes the evils that came out of Pandora’s box or the snake that tempted Eve to eat the fruit of the tree. Unfortunately, I got a ticket to meet-and-greet Satan’s worse enemy in hell.
This person was Satan’s nemesis in who is rightful to be named “Prince of Darkness.” The name of this demon is Nidakezzar. When God banished Lucifer to the abyss, Nidakezzar was one of banished angels. However, Nidakezzar was smart enough to outsmart God by secretly raising alliances with the fallen angels. When the fallen angels started to regroup in the deep abyss, there a dispute. Who shall rule hell? The fallen angels voted Nidakezzar, but some of Lucifer’s loyal allies strongly went against Nidakezzar. After convincing everyone that Lucifer should be Prince of Darkness because he lead the insurgency against God, Nidakezzar was left out. But, he found more power on earth than in hell. In a race between evil and evil, he and Lucifer are only a competition on who corrupts most humans. With Lucifer ruling hell–to be specific, the seven circles of hell–his time is divided. That’s where Nidakezzar’s advantage lies. Legends say that Nidakezzar manifests his presence in the mortal realm in the form of a woman because he believed that men can be easily tempted by women.
According to the Book of Demons, Nidakezzar releases a scent that charms people. This scent slowly manipulates the people who subconsciously worships him. This scent was said to smell like flowers. But when released from her illusion, it smells like rotten eggs or decaying flesh. Another of Nidakezzar’s powers is false appearance. Many spiritists believe that this is his strongest power. This power conceals her true appearance. That is why he can turn in a woman. When the exorcists discovered this ability, the strongest exorcists of the 16th century wrote a prayer in Latin that would impair this ability. The prayer was not strong enough to disable it. What the prayer did was that survivors of Nidakezzar’s charm would release them from her false appearance. Once released from the charm, the person would see the real demonic form of Nidakezzar.
Unknowingly, I met Nidakezzar in the form of a woman. It was said that evil takes the form of good things. True. That is the strategy of Nidakezzar. When I met him in false form, I though he was the best person I would like to get along with. Nidakezzar appeared like a good person to me. But, one could not hide true colors for long. My eyes were released from the illusion. I then saw a creature of horror in front of me: a monster with two horns, eyes that glows like fire, sharp fangs, claws with sharp and pointy nails, and a tail that could pierce through walls. When I was released from her illusion, I remained resilient and acted like I was still under the demonic spell.
Once released from his chains, I could see her around. I could feel her aura a mile away. When she walks around, what everyone sees is a person. But for me, I see a demon. His steps corrupt the land. The brown soil turned black. The green grass dried up and turned black. The leaves of the tree fell off the branches and dissolved into a dust as the wind blew. What was left was a lifeless tree.
Every time I see Nidakezzar, I pray to God for protection and strength. I may not have the Latin prayers to fight him, but I have immunity from his charm. Now, I see a demon corrupting other people. I pity them.
