The name Abaddon in the Hebrew mythology stands for destruction.
The name is also used to describe places where destruction can take place.
Legends have said that Abaddon is a place which Moses uncovered, but this place was Hell, which was engulfed in fire and snow. In Greek mythology, the name Abaddon refers to an entity known as Apolloyon who is described as a destroyer.
In the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament, the name Abaddon was related to the realm of the dead. The immoral and wicked people had to go to this realm for punishment for sins.
In the Greek translation of the Hebrew scripture Hades this means an evil place where people from the underworld are sent when they die.
In the New Testament Abaddon was first described as an entity and not a place. He was described as an angel fallen to Earth and became the King of a plague after receiving a key to the door of a bottomless pit.
This bottomless pit contained a swarm of locusts which caused the plague.
He was able to let loose this plague on the Earth by opening the door with a key. The plague would descend on the Earth in the form of a swarm of locusts which looked like horses but had the faces of human beings.
They had long hair like a woman, long teeth like a lion and tails like scorpions for tormenting all those who were not protected as a believer in God.
The Christians described him as a demon and sometimes referred Abaddon to the Devil himself. It is said that Abaddon was named Muriel when God had sent him to Earth to collect some earth in order to create Adam.
When he finished collecting the earth he was made the guardian of all things on Earth. Abaddon prayed to God that he be given the status where every man who worships him is saved and sent to heaven. He got his wish and this is when he started to be feared by angels and other entities including the other demons because of his powers.
Abaddon has been shown in an important role in many scriptures. He was appointed as the entity to carry all the souls to the valley of Josaphat in the scripture known as the “Last Judgement.”
In another scripture called the “Tomb of Jesus” he was described to be present at the site when Jesus was resurrected from his grave.
People from the Protestant faith described Abaddon in various ways. Some say that he is the form of Anti-Christ while others describe him to be the Satan or the Devil himself.
