{INT. SATAN’S PALACE – DAY}

SATAN
(squats)
What am I getting?
(stands)
What is that?
(eyes glow)
All the creatures that I used are all destroyed.
(smiles)
Michael, I’ll get you. This time, I’ll double my strength.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}

The Elders are sitting around their table. Rosh-Seraph is walking gradually around them.

SHAFAT 
(stands)
Even if time is tamed for human existence, everything will occur exactly the same way it did.

YAKACH 
This is the best time to start sending messengers.

ROSH-SERAPH
We should maintain an angelic line among humans where Mary will be born.

SHAFAT
You’re right, Rosh. Tub,

TUB 
Yes?

SHAFAT
Summon the Archangels here, right now.

TUB
All right.
(closes his eyes and the Archangels appear before the Elders)
Here they are.

GABRIEL 
My lord?

SHAFAT
We are working toward a prophecy from our father; the Most High. It is this prophecy that led to the existence of humans on earth today! We’ve learnt that Adam and Eve refused to teach their children about God; the Most High, maybe they’re probably angry with us. Whatever they do, we understand their pain and they will not be blamed for their actions. Without their sacrifice, we wouldn’t be talking about humanity right now. Nevertheless, we have decided to take the task into our hands in making sure that is done. Are you all in?

GABRIEL
We are.

SHAFAT
Good. It is time to send messengers to earth; we need the teachings of righteousness among humans.

GABRIEL
These messengers, are they going to become souls?

SHAFAT
Yes, but not exactly, because when they return, they’ll go back to their angelic form and position in Shamayim.

GABRIEL
Will they be born through humans?

SHAFAT
Well, yes, but not all of them.

GABRIEL
What if a corrupt human-parent misguides them?

SHAFAT
They will not be accountable for any sin as humans, because they are messengers. Got it?

GABRIEL
Clear, but what is the difference between the sacrifice of these messengers and the three volunteers?

SHAFAT
The difference is, a messenger has no choice to accept or reject the task but the volunteers do.

GABRIEL
But you know, human souls are liable to Yam-Esh or maybe Gan-Eden, will the messengers share the same fate?

SHAFAT
As a messenger, once dead on earth, you’ll come back to Shamayim and resume your position. I think I’ve answered that.

GABRIEL
Now I get the picture.

SHAFAT
Yes. That is what will happen. Since most of the messengers may be coming from your clans, they’ll be loyal to you irrespective of whatever they’ve become. So, you’ll be visiting them often to remind them about the existence of father.

GABRIEL
For how long will this take place?

SHAFAT
Not quite long, we’ll just send few messengers to input righteousness into them, with time, it will habituate them and become part of them, then they’ll be able to live on their own; calling the name of God all their lives until the Most High’s Son comes.

GABRIEL
But still, they need a parent that believes that at least a deity exists.

SHAFAT
Yes, they all believe that a deity exists, at least, the deity that made their parents.

GABRIEL
What about other beings still living in other planets other than earth that are habitable to their nature?

SHAFAT
Well, we can’t stop the birth track for those people. As long as they’ve repented and took the oath, they’ll always keep reproducing or may go into extinction as time goes on. They’re not our target because whatever happens to them won’t change their ability to enter into Shamayim in the end. So, our focus is on earth-beings who will be accountable for their deeds in the end.

GABRIEL
Okay, when do we begin?

SHAFAT
Right now. First, we’ll need a messenger from Uriel’s clan because even the Elders will be born as messengers on earth too.
(looks at Uriel)

GABRIEL
Governor Rikbiel.
(Uriel winks and Rikbiel appears in the council)

SHAFAT
Rikbiel! Okay, that’s good. As a messenger, you’ll bear a different name on Earth and appear in a different body to rather confusing Satan about who you are. So, Rikbiel is hereby named Enos on earth!
(to Rikbiel)
Your mission is to teach humans about God. But once you become a soul in a human body, you’ll like others lose some of your memories and abilities as an angel. This will happen because you’ll follow the normal birth track to acquire earth-nature.

GABRIEL
Then how are they supposed to know that they’re messengers?

SHAFAT
That’s where you come in. I said, they’ll be loyal to you irrespective of whatever they’ve become.

GABRIEL
Here in Shamayim, the angels are loyal to their clan masters, is that what you mean?

SHAFAT
Exactly! However, as a human, they can disobey you because they’re completely in human nature.

GABRIEL
How do we handle such cases?

SHAFAT
You can use powers of luck or hardship on them and they’ll respond.

GABRIEL
What if such powers fail?

SHAFAT
Destroy such messenger and go for a new one. Such a mission must be done.

TWENTY YEARS LATER (Earth’s time)

{EXT. RANCH, EARTH – DAY}

Seth is among many Sheep with his wife; Aliza.

SETH
(yells)
Enos!

ENOS
(stands from behind bushes)
Father!

SETH
Go and get me my bowl.

ALIZA
Seth, we apparently won’t need to graze this farm in some couple of days.

SETH
Yes, I see that, Aliza.

ENOS
(walks to Seth and hands him the bowl)
Here, father.

SETH
(collects the bowl)
Thanks, my boy.

ENOS
Father…

SETH
(drinks from the bowl)
What.

ENOS
The lord appeared to me in my dreams and asked me to teach you his ways.

SETH
Enos, go to your siblings and relatives, I’m sure that’s whom God wants you to speak to.

ALIZA
(squats and holds Enos’ hairs)
You’re a smart kid. I know God has plans for us, but you need to understand that your older relatives wouldn’t take your advice.

SETH
Hey, let him be, Aliza, let the will of the creator happen through our son.

ENOS
The Lord told me that I was born for this purpose and that I must start my works immediately.

FORTY YEARS LATER (Earth’s time)

{INT. ENOS’ HUT – NIGHT}

Enos is sleeping on a wooden mat on the floor.

Archangel Uriel appears above Enos and opens his wings.

Enos’ astral body stands out of his physical body, sees Uriel and bows.

URIEL
Enos!

ENOS
My Lord and God.

URIEL
I am a messenger from the Most High God. Your effort is good, but you must do this all day.

ENOS
My Lord, I am doing my best, please give me more time.

URIEL
That you have. Tell them all you know about God. Tell them his love for humanity, and his mercy for the righteous mind. The Lord demands your worship, you must worship God forever for that was your purpose.

{EXT. ROCKY GROUND – DAY}

ENOS
(stands on a rock. Ninety-two people are standing before him)
We must serve God with all our heart, might and soul. He is the only true God who has made all things. The Lord demands your worship, you must worship God forever for that was your purpose.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – DAY}

The universal council and Satan are in a meeting.

SATAN
I was able to deceive man with the third temptation. He was very hard to convince with the first and second temptations but the third was easier than expected. The Elders think they’re helping humans. Hahaha! Let us go down to earth-humans and destroy them all.

PAIMON 
How are we going to destroy them?

SATAN
Right now, they’re divided. I won’t use the old trick we used in the previous world.

AGIEL 
Previous world?

SATAN
It’s a very long story as I’m not prepared to do anything about that right now. We’re going to influence Cain’s lineage and be their god.

ABYZOU 
They no longer reference the Most High, how can we penetrate their heart?

SATAN
That they don’t reference the Most High gives us a better chance to win their heart.

KOKABIEL 
How do we start?

SATAN
Through their dreams. We’ll use them against the lineage of Seth. Secondly, we don’t need animals.

AGIEL
Animals?

SATAN
It’s complicated, Agiel.

ALASTOR 
(stands)
We’re supposed to plan war against Shamayim. The way humans are taking our attention is beginning to make me think differently.

SATAN
Tell me, what are you thinking about?

ALASTOR
I think the Elders create humans in order to distract us from fighting against them.

SATAN
Without earth-beings, you can’t weaken the Elders or even the Most High. Trust me, facing humans is our weapon against the Elders.

MALPHAS 
(to Alastor)
What made you have such thought?

ALASTOR
Because I’m not interested in this human thing, I mean, they were demons who left us. What if the Elders sent them here to continue to live with us but in another nature? They all look like abandoned fools to me.

SATAN
Yes, others are abandoned but not earth-beings, Alastor.

ALASTOR
I just…

SATAN
(interrupts)
Shhhhh! Sit down.
(Alastor sits)
Don’t try to get into our heads and discourage us from this mission. I know what I’m talking about, we need earth-humans as much as possible if we really want to conquer Shamayim. This is a new war! Dismiss!
(all the council members start disappearing gradually)
Paimon!

PAIMON
(raises his head)
Yes, my lord!

SATAN
Come with me, we’ve got things to talk about.
(Abyzou and Malphas glance at each other with a slightly surprised look on their faces. He speaks to Abyzou and Malphas)
Let’s say he’s my best friend now, protect him and his clan with your life.
(Abyzou and Malphas nod.)
