{EXT. GATEWAY, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

Satan and Michael are under the Shade of light.

SATAN
I am certain of my victory, Michael.

MICHAEL
(smiles)
Then why are you still in this universe?

SATAN
You know the Most High can never strike at me for whatever reason.

MICHAEL
The Most High may not, but His Son would destroy you.

SATAN
He will never come.

MICHAEL
Trust me, He will come. The prophecy can never fail.

SATAN
Prophecy from whom?

MICHAEL
You have Paimon, we have others.

SATAN
Hahaha! Spies, I knew there were spies.

MICHAEL
Well, I came to find out your recent developments.

SATAN
Then you’ve failed because you’ll get nothing.

MICHAEL
Hahaa! No, that’s not it. You didn’t get it. I came to mock you because I already know what it is! So, How are you coping with your failure over humans; yeah, their language kind of a thing. Hahahaha!

SATAN
Hahahahaha! You will get the outcome soon.

MICHAEL
(keeps a mean face)
Really?

SATAN
Yeah, really. I wish you were on my side.

MICHAEL
You know, I’m not a fool.

SATAN
That’s why you’re a fool!

MICHAEL
(smiles)
Better than you!

SATAN
Yet, can be amused by me.

MICHAEL
Hmm… got to go now!

SATAN
(nods)
Yeah,
(continue nodding)
I was about telling you that you’re trespassing in my world.

MICHAEL
Ok good… I got it! But…

SATAN
(interrupts)
But what!

MICHAEL
I didn’t tell you the main reason I came.
(suddenly grasps Satan’s hand. Immediately, a lightning field surrounds Satan and he becomes immobilized.)

SATAN
(in agony)
Revenge! Huh?

MICHAEL
I promise you, I’m going to be very fast. Before you cut yourself loose, Sodom and Gomorrah will be gone! I’ll turn them into salt.

SATAN
(Groans)
Arrrrrrr!
(eyes glow)
Abyzou, Azazel!

MICHAEL
They can’t even hear you. Don’t bother!
(disappears)

The crown on Satan’s head glows. A lightning bolt comes out of the crown and strikes at the lightning field around him. But, nothing happens to the field.

{SPACE}

Michael, Gabriel and Raguel are flying towards Earth under the Shade of light.

MICHAEL
Raguel, get the rocks, we’re burying them.

GABRIEL
Let’s pay a visit to Abraham, first.

MICHAEL
Look, we better be fast about that before Satan get loosed from his trap.

GABRIEL
Don’t worry, it’ll take Satan ten Earth days to release himself from that bondage.

RAGUEL
There is no time to waste then.

GABRIEL
We’ll be quick, I promise! I just need to see Abraham and go back, besides, the task is yours.

MICHAEL
Whatever.

{SKY, RAZUA}

Abyzou, Paimon, Eisheth, Azazel, Malphas, Agrat, Beleth and all demons are immobilized, floating in the air.

{HEBRON, EARTH}

Abraham is sitting at the entrance of his tent. Gabriel, Michael and Raguel appear under a tree. Their eyes are slightly glowing while dressed in white robes.

ABRAHAM
(looks up, sees Gabriel, Michael and Raguel as their eyes slightly glow and suddenly be like human eyes. He runs towards them, gets close and bows)
Sirs, please do not pass by my home without stopping; I am here to serve you!

{INT. TENT}

Sarah; Abraham’s wife is looking at Abraham and the three Archangels.

{EXT. GATEWAY – DAY}

The lightning field around Satan is slightly weak with a faded brightness as Satan continues to hit it with forces from the crown on his head.

{ROCKY AREA, HEBRON}

Gabriel, Michael and Raguel are walking with Abraham.

ABRAHAM
Thank you, my Lord, for stopping by.

GABRIEL
There are terrible accusations against Sodom and Gomorrah, and their sin is very great. I must go down to find out whether or not the accusations I have heard are true.
(stops walking with Michael and Raguel)
Michael and Raguel walk away towards Sodom.

ABRAHAM
(approaches Gabriel)
Are you going to destroy the innocent with the guilty?

{INT. LOT’S WOODEN ROOM, SODOM – NIGHT}

Michael and Raguel are sitting on a rocky seat with LOT.

Suddenly, men knock the door from outside.

MAN (V.O)
(among the men outside)
Where are the good-looking handsome men who came to stay with you tonight? Bring them out to us!

{EXT. LOT’S HOUSE BALCONY}

Lot opens the door of his house, comes out, stand with the men outside and close the door behind him.

LOT
I beg you, please don’t do such a wicked thing! Look, I have two daughters who are still virgins. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do whatever you want with them.

MAN
(among the men)
Get out of our way, you foreigner! Who are you to tell us what to do? Out of our way or we will treat you worse than them.

The men push back Lot. Michael and Raguel reach out, pull Lot back into the house, and shut the door.

Suddenly, the men become blind and confused.

{INT. LOT’S ROOM}

MICHAEL
(to Lot)
If you have anyone else here – sons, daughters, sons-in-law, or any other relatives living in the city get them out of here because we are going to destroy this place.

LOT
What? Why?

RAGUEL
The Lord has heard the terrible accusations against these people and has sent us to destroy Sodom.

{EXT. GATEWAY – DAY}

Seven low demons approach Satan in the lightning field.

SATAN
(stops hitting the field with the powers from the crown. He faces the direction of the demons)
Hey!
(they seem not to hear him)
Fools! Alarm your masters!

DEMON ONE
I think he’s creating something new.

SATAN
Idiots!

DEMON TWO
He said, Heroes! We’re Heroes?

DEMON THREE
(Satan twist his hand)
No, I think he said turn around.

SATAN
I’ll deal with you fools!

DEMON FOUR
I think he wants us to guard him.

DEMON ONE
(to Demon three)
Yes, you’re right. He probably doesn’t want us to look at him. He could be training. We got to turn around.

DEMON FOUR
He doesn’t want us to leave either. Let’s guard him.

The seven demons turn around, surround and back Satan.

SATAN
Morons! You’re already dead!
(continues hitting the lightning field with the powers from the crown on his head)

DEMON THREE
You see, he has continued with his training.

DEMON ONE
It’s an honour.

{SODOM AND GOMORRAH/CONOID/SPACE}

Michael and Raguel are kicking and throwing asteroids (space rocks) into the earth, upon the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The bodies of the rocks become fiery as they go through the earth’s atmosphere into the earth, and fall upon the cities; killing humans and digging the ground thousands of feet downward.

The souls of the dying Fairies from Sodom and Gomorrah escape from their human body as souls.

Suddenly, the Holocheists appear, capture the souls (fairies) and take them to the Conoid.

Raguel keeps pushing rocks onto the cities.

MICHAEL
(to Raguel)
It’s enough! Don’t you see it’s very deep now?

RAGUEL
No! Not deep at all!

MICHAEL
We don’t want the damage to extend to Lot, he’s not far away.

RAGUEL
Whatever!
(pointing at thousands of rocks above earth’s atmosphere)
So, what about these? We can’t leave them here.

MICHAEL
Dump them between those planets
(points at Jupiter and Mars)

RAGUEL
All right.

MICHAEL
I got one more thing to do.

RAGUEL
What’s that?

MICHAEL
Just take care of the rocks, I’ll be back in a moment.
(flies into the earth)

{GATEWAY}

Satan destroys the field around him and quickly feed on the powers of the seven demons around him.

SATAN
Fools!

{SEA, EARTH}

Michael enters into the sea, carries a large amount of water, flies towards the city – Sodom and Gomorrah, and pour it upon the city.

The water settles in a small area of the city and starts to rise gradually.

MICHAEL
(to the water)
Cover these areas and destroy every living thing here.
(eyes glow)
Curse be upon this place, there shall be no form of life in this city for thousands of years.
(disappears)

LATER

{SODOM – NIGHT}

Satan, the Executives and Paimon are under the shade of light. There is water growing speedily from the ground.

The ground is very deep below sea level.

PAIMON
The water is poisoned for mortal life.

AGRAT
This must be the doings of Michael.

EISHETH
Raguel was with him.

SATAN
(to Eisheth)
Shut up! Why!!!
(destroys rocks)
All because of humans; creatures that left Shamayim with me!

ABYZOU
They worship me as their god.

AZAZEL
How are we going to attack Abraham now?

PAIMON
Abraham is much stronger than the cities around him now. Unless there were more other cities controlled by the hybrids.

SATAN
I rightfully own this universe and all that is in it. Humans must be in my control too.
(to Paimon)
I must control and punish the human soul! That’s what I feel right now, tell me what you know about that!

PAIMON
You have control over this universe and all that is in it. Yes! You can never control humans but you can curse their soul to suffer in anguish.

SATAN
If there is a way to destroy the human souls, I won’t stop until it’s done.

PAIMON
If only you can control where the human souls must go, you can win this war.

SATAN
(turns his attention to Paimon suddenly)
Joke! Right?

PAIMON
No!

SATAN
I’m going to destroy them with fire. It’s our weakness and it’s theirs too. So, tell me, Paimon; when you said to win this war, what did you mean?

PAIMON
The Most High’s Son can become an apprentice to you when he comes as a soul.

SATAN
What?

PAIMON
When he is born, he’ll be like a complete human. If you’re able to approach him and convince him to worship you, it’ll be a lot easier and guess what, you will be like the Most High because all His authority will be transferred to you.

SATAN
Let’s get to work! I need him in my court.

PAIMON
But…

SATAN
(interrupts)
What!

PAIMON
It can only be done with the law. Anyone who practices the law will suffer your curse.

SATAN
Law?

PAIMON
Yeah, a law that can only be made once in the lifetime of the powers in your possession. Even the Most High or His Son may not be able to reverse it. It also implies that if you curse the path and destiny of the human soul, even the greatest kings in Shamayim who become a soul will answer to you and suffer the curse. The Most High’s Son is coming, and as I said, he’ll be in your court.
(keeps quiet)

SATAN
Tell me more!

PAIMON
(points at the Executives)
Not in front of them.

Suddenly, Shade of light covers Paimon and Satan in the speed of light.

The Executives glances at each other with a fierce look on their faces.

{INT. HUDIEL’S PALACE, MICHAEL’S TERRITORY – DAY}

Hudiel, Gabriel and Michael are under the Shade of light.

GABRIEL
(to Hudiel)
This is what you will do, spy on Olam-Chuphshah until Shamayim is safe from all threats.

MICHAEL
What about Metatron and Jophiel.

GABRIEL
At least, let someone from your clan join them there. They need our eyes.

MICHAEL
Raguel may not like this; he believes he’s up to the task with his angels.

GABRIEL
Please, release Hudiel for this task, after the training, you can withdraw him.

MICHAEL
Then, I’ll have to hasten up with the training.

{SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – DAY}

The universal council are sitting and listening to Satan.

SATAN
We’re all going to rule earth-beings and become their gods. Not only that, I’ve discovered a way to punish their souls. But I learnt that we need a law for this to work. However, this law has to be cast once, and it can never be reversed or added. So, we need to be careful about making the law.
(faces Agiel)
Does anyone have any good suggestion?

AGIEL 
(stands)
My lord, I know our history and how many times we’ve failed.

MALPHAS
(to Agiel)
Shut up!

SATAN
Let him speak!

AGIEL
Okay,
(slightly bows his head to Satan)
Thank you, my lord. Well, I wanted to say that this is probably the best chance we have against Shamayim.

The council makes a slight noise.

ALASTOR 
(stands)
Permit me, my Lord. I think Agiel was obstructed and if that continues to happen, we may not come up with any solution here.
(to the council)
Every time we face humans, we end up annoying ourselves. Why shouldn’t we just concentrate on getting powers from them and prepare for war against Shamayim?

PAIMON
It’s that simple to say but it’s not that easy to do. If we want to win this war, we probably want to control the destiny of human souls. If peradventure the Son of the Most High comes through Earth beings, we’re doomed. However, if we control where his soul will go, we can win him easily. This is why we need the law.

{EXT. BETHEL, EARTH – NIGHT}

Jacob; the son of Isaac (son of Abraham), lies down to sleep and lays his head on a stone.

Suddenly, the Ladder-way opens in a stairway-like manner. Uzziel and her angels stand around the stairway. Gabriel stands on one of the stairs and faces the direction where Jacob lies.

GABRIEL
Jacob, Jacob!

JACOB
(his astral body rises out of his physical body, sees Gabriel and the angels around the stairway-like Ladder-way, and bows)
My lord and god!

GABRIEL
I am the Lord, the God of Abraham and Isaac. I will give to you and your descendants this land on which you are lying. Through you and your descendants shall the nations of the earth be blessed. I will be with you and will protect you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done all that I have promised you.

LATER

JACOB
(wakes)
The Lord is here! He is in this place, and I didn’t know it!
(shivers)
What a terrifying place this is! It must be the house of God; it must be the gate that opens to heaven.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – DAY}

BATHYM 
What makes you think any law from us will work on humans when we hardly touch them or affect their worlds.

SATAN
Because I am god, and I have the Crown and the Seed. I can make anything happen in this universe because this universe rightfully belongs to the one in possession of the Seed. Please, let us not confuse ourselves, do this with me, please!

The council gradually makes some sounds and agrees.

ZEPAR 
(stands)
So, let’s talk about the law.

ELIGOS 
We should centre the law on human’s activities, emotions, urges and weaknesses.

SATAN
(nods)
Human weaknesses, you know, I’ve never thought of that.

Paimon slightly glances at Eligos.

PAIMON
Let us make these laws quickly because we do not know what will happen next. The generations of Abraham are dead and their souls are not under our control, we need to hurry!

SATAN
May we rise!

{EXT. RIVER JABOK, EARTH – NIGHT}

Jacob is standing at the brink of the river; looking upon the river. Suddenly, he sees Hudiel who walks out of the river.

JACOB
(thinks that Hudiel is human and runs towards Hudiel)
Hey! Stop there, now!
(stands in front of Hudiel)

HUDIEL
Please, mortal man, I have no business with you.

JACOB
Why do you call me that name and where did you come from?

HUDIEL
I’m just passing.

JACOB
Shut up, I saw you walked out of the water and there is no land in there.

Suddenly, the Ladder-way appears like a bright light behind Jacob.

HUDIEL
(to Jacob)
Excuse me, you are standing in my way.

JACOB
(does not notice the Ladder-way that has opened behind him)
No way, not until you tell me who you are, and what you are doing here.
(Hudiel walks towards the Ladder-way and tries to bypass him. He stands in the way and stretches his body to hold Hudiel, but his hip breaks. There, he sees the Ladder-way in the form of light)
Haaa! You’re an angel of God.
(falls upon his face, grasps and holds Hudiel’s right leg steady)

HUDIEL
(over the mind to himself)
O no… I only came to spy! Now, I have harmed this innocent man by mistake. Had I know, I wouldn’t have used the human form to pass through here.
(loudly to Jacob)
Please, let me go; daylight is coming. I don’t want to be spotted by the enemy of light.

JACOB
I won’t unless you bless me.

HUDIEL
What is your name?

JACOB
Jacob!

HUDIEL
(over the mind to himself)
O my goodness! He is the one whom the Most High’s Son will come through. What shall I do in order not to anger the Elders or my Master?
(loudly to Jacob)
Your name will no longer be Jacob. You have struggled with God and men, and you have won, so your name shall be Israel.

JACOB
Now, great one, tell me your name.

HUDIEL
(over the mind to himself)
What? Does this man want to endanger my mission? I have to make him let me go, else, I’ll hurt him and be punished.
(loudly to Jacob)
Why do you want to know my name? There’s no need for that. I bless you ten thousand times, your kingdom shall be great and upon you and your descendants shall the hand of the mighty God be placed.
(as he is talking, Jacob weakens and gradually frees him. He suddenly disappears together with the Ladder-way)

JACOB
(pants)
I have seen God face to face!
