I am curious about the Origin of the Spirits found in New Avatar Power.
I know, from searching this forum, that they can be found in other books and their names are present in certain Bible verses.
What I'm most curious about, is what or who created the NAP Spirits, and if they pre-date both Judaism and Christianity.
If they existed before the Bible was written, then did they inspire the authors to write their names hidden inside the verses?
Were they adopted by the early Judeo-Christian mystics and included into their growing spiritual system?
Where did they come from and who created them?
Is YHVH their creator? Or is it the Lord of the Universe? And are they one and the same?
I'm also interested in more sources regarding the existence of these spirits and Angels in general in a pre-Judeo-Christian context, if anyone has recommendations for further research.
