Male and Female Demons The Gospel of Philip




The Gospel of Philip: 

The forms of evil spirit include male ones and female ones. The males are they which unite with the souls which inhabit a female form, but the females are they which are mingled with those in a male form, though one who was disobedient. And none shall be able to escape them, since they detain him if he does not receive a male power or a female power, the bridegroom and the bride. One receives them from the mirrored bridal chamber. When the wanton women see a male sitting alone, they leap down on him and play with him and defile him. So also the lecherous men, when they see a beautiful woman sitting alone, they persuade her and compel her, wishing to defile her. But if they see the man and his wife sitting beside one another, the female cannot come into the man, nor can the male come into the woman. So if the image and the angel are united with one another, neither can any venture to go into the man or the woman.
He who comes out of the world, and so can no longer be detained on the grounds that he was in the world, evidently is above the desire of the [...] and fear. He is master over [...]. He is superior to envy. If [...] comes, they seize him and throttle him. And how will this one be able to escape the great [...] powers? How will he be able to [...]? There are some who say, "We are faithful" in order that [...] the unclean spirits and the demons. For if they had the Holy Spirit, no unclean spirit would cleave to them. Fear not the flesh nor love it. If you fear it, it will gain mastery over you. If you love it, it will swallow and paralyze you.

in this part of the Gospel of Philip 65.1-66.7 the "evil spirit" and the "unclean spirits and the demons" are the passions of the flesh that is why Philip uses these expressions together thus unclean spirits are the thinking of the flesh and therefore we should not fear nor love the flesh only if we have the spirit of Christ (the Christ-Consciousness) can we fight against the flesh

male demons=wrath 
female demons=lust

The forms of evil spirit include male ones and female ones [evil spirits (thoughts and intents) are restricted to the “waters below” and therefore are male and female in form]. The males are they which unite with the souls which inhabit a female form [the physical female body], but the females are they which are mingled with those in a male form, though one who was disobedient [so these male forms were able to “hear the word” but fell out of the way - it seems to be more clearly explained below]. (Philip 46)

And none [who are “disobedient”] shall be able to escape them, since they detain him [“they do not go in yet hinder those who are from going in” this is about our personal battle between the spirit and the flesh] if he does not receive a male power [i.e. Christ in you”] or a female power [the “holy spirit”], the bridegroom and the bride [one needs both of these to unite in the bridal chamber (our heart) to conceive “regeneration” i.e. a son of God]. One receives them from the mirrored bridal chamber [the spiritual body (the image)]. When the wanton women [female demon] see a male [one who has the seed of Christ] sitting alone [not yet having received holy spirit (still using his own intellect and knowledge and not being guided by the spirit of truth)], they [the demons] leap down on him and play with him and defile him [they are able to subvert his mind towards the carnal nature]. So also the lecherous men [male demons], when they see a beautiful woman [one who has received holy spirit] sitting alone [has not yet received the seed of Christ (masculine seed) in them], they persuade her and compel her, wishing to defile her [they “wish to” but cannot for the holy spirit cannot be defiled – this one WILL eventually be drawn to and set-apart to Christ]. (Philip 47)

But if they see the man and his wife sitting beside one another [one who has both Christ (the masculine seed) in them and the holy spirit (truth and enlightenment of who and what you are) united as one in your heart] the female [demons] cannot come into the man, nor can the male [demons] come into the woman. So if the image [of God i.e. the heart of “man”] and the angel [holy spirit] are united with one another, neither can any venture to go into the man or the woman. (Philip 48) [Hence “What God has yoked together, let no man put asunder” – this is not the same as what men yoke together i.e. flesh to flesh – the Father yokes spirit to spirit (once you belong to Him it’s the end of the matter). Judas having not yet received holy spirit (true apprehension of who and what he is) was left vulnerable to the evil demon (the adversary which is that carnal nature which beguiles one into evil intent) who easily overcame him and used him for God’s own purpose – demons (evil thoughts and intentions) whether male (appealing to the brutish animal nature) of female (appealing to the emotions) are from within, they are the carnal and perverted nature of our subjective minds to the influences of others i.e. spiritual thievery and we all have these until they are destroyed (cast out of our hearts)]
