In researching tonight, can't really find anyone in the Norse Pantheon that fits. Surt fit the description of Uriel in some regards, and the Muspell could both be a hellish place or the ultimate realm of light and power. The description Uriel in Revelation chapter 10, fits also Surt. The Sons of Muspell might be considered terrible punishing spirits, but also as angels of living light and fire (Seraphim?).
Ymir, is a frost giant, not a good or holy being in the least. Surt is wrath personified, the great giant of fire. Again, there simply is not a first father figure, or even really a supreme mother like Nammu of Sumerian myths. Researching the Welsh, and not having much luck there either. There is a real element, that these peoples were governed by the Watchers/Fallen/Vanities from ancient times - much as the same deities ruled as the Olympians of Roman-Greek lore. Indeed, the Bible associated Zeus with Satan (Revelation 2:12-13) directly.
Anyway, Yahweh himself is very much the Great Warrior God in his own right, and can thereby be associated with the Red Sash.
ps, sorry about the horriblke spelling. I often write in a hurry 🤓
I would add that the text of Norse mythology might be seen through the lens of ritual use of scandinavian magic mushroomn by a mystic living in a violent culture, surrounded by need and desperation due to barren lands and Vanity-worship. Surt and others might be colored by that. In regards to Muspelheim, I think of Zoroastrian Asha, fire of truth, that burns only those of lies. Asha is equivalent to Uriel I think.
@7elyonism7official I concur - it feels true at a deep level. Especially Surt's sword of light and guarding the way back to the first world (Muspelheim). The Light/Fire of God can illuminate or burn - it can be heaven or hell in a sense. The Christian sense of the Fire of the Holy Spirit enrapturing the believer but tormenting the unbeliever with the flames of conscience... The Spirit as the voice of conscience condemning us to bring about repentance, while comforting/soothing those who are the path of eternal life like a gentle mother.
After a quick round of online research it seems that many believe that Odin is the son of Bestla and Borr. Since this means he is not the first father, it would make him more related to Zeus and the Powers rather than a face of the one.
I agree. So then again how about Ymir. Also in Norse mythology creation of all creation was a result of a Dismemberment etc etc
@B. (Gwenyver Not sure sis. I will have to research more. We include allot of First Fathers, but it's hard to find a decent mask/face in Nordic/Celtic/Welsh mythology - because there was so much war-god/bloodiness in it... much like the South & Central American deities (even cannibalism).
Do you think that Odin is a face of The One? Should we include this name as one of the facets?
There is a parallel, however, between the notion of Odin being hung upside down, and the notion of Samyaza of the book of Enoch... which makes me hesitant. Not to mention the bloody warlike nature of the Vikings - though, on the other hand, would be a fitting mask/aspect peculiar to a Black Robe/Red Sash.
@James Meadows Odin a fitting mask/aspect I would say.
I would say no. to Odin. If anything similar it is clouded behind a war God. And in the creation myth we can see a paralell to how the elders(trolls) where overthrown by the vanities(aesirs). The aesirs are also a result of the creatures of creation(a troll, a cow and a man that the cow licked out of a stone), so Odin is not a creator.
@7elyonism7official Good call.
List them as you please. 7 thunders, you know.
