MANY YEARS LATER (Earth’s time)

EXT. MIZBEACH-HALAL/OLAM-ZAKU – DAY}

The Elders, Archangels and Angels are singing praise music unto the Most High.

Suddenly, a great light carrying great energy descends from the throne of Ahavah, passes through Mizbeach-Halal to Olam-Zaku. It gets to Olam-Zaku and turns into a soul bearing a green colour of light.

YAKACH 
(yells)
The prophecy is fulfilled, the Son of the Most High has come! Rise to the sky and sing a song of praise to Him!

All the host of Angels; with their wings, Archangels and Elders fly into the sky and sing a new song of jubilation.

MUSIC

ALL
In the Lord Most High is all life

ELDERS
Rejoice, rejoice! He has come to save us from the fear of Satan

ALL
In the Lord Most High is divine protection

ARCHANGELS
Be glad, be glad! His only Son has descended unto us in the likeness of a human.

ALL
In the Lord Most High is the dwelling of the saints and the lost ones. Halleluyah, halleluyah! He has become a soul to be born among humans as the King of kings and Lord of lords, forever he shall reign and forever he lives. Halleluyah, halleluyah!Amen.

END OF MUSIC

{HADES}

Yakach, Michael, Gabriel, Moses and Elijah are standing among many souls at deep sleep.

GABRIEL
It’s time.

ELIJAH
This day has finally come.
(exhales)
At last, we will be at peace again.

YAKACH
First, there was no sign from the Most High when Mary; the light bearer was born. However, He has arrived. It happened so fast and we were unaware of the right time. But unto the Most High, it’s the right time.

MOSES
We shouldn’t delay his birth, let us do the needful.

YAKACH
(pours a cloud of white dust upon Elijah)
You are hereby named John. You will go ahead of the Lord and will prepare the minds of the people unto the arrival of Yeshua, teaching them the new way and giving them a new life through baptism. For you will baptise them with water but Yeshua will baptise them with fire…

{INT. TEMPLE, JUDEA, EARTH}

An old man is burning incense on the Altar.

GABRIEL
(suddenly appears upon the burning incense. The old man sees him and shivers)
Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son. You are to name him John.

ZECHARIAH
(heaves, stops shivering and stands as if something is wrong with his sight)
This is an illusion. At first, I thought I saw an angel but to my greatest surprise, it’s all happening in my head. For years, nothing like this has happened in Israel. Though it might have happened in the time of our forefathers this particular one is not real, at all.
(smiles)
All right, let me pretend as if this one is real.
(to Gabriel)
Hehe, you know people think I’m schizophrenic sometimes. You see; my wife is old, likewise myself. How dare you stand in this holy place to proclaim false enthusiastic approval. I don’t blame you…

GABRIEL
(interrupts)
Shut up!
(Zechariah’s mouth closes immediately and is unable to open for further words)
Anyway, I’m not surprised. That’s what you get from humans when they stand in place of a messenger. However, because you make a mockery of yourself and doubt the power of the Most High God, you will be unable to speak until the day my promise to you come true.

{INT. MANSE, LEBAB – DAY}

The eleven Archangels are standing with their Second in commands kneeling before them.

The Elders are surrounding the Archangels and their second in commands.

YAKACH
We thought one person was going to represent you all.

GABRIEL
This is our decision. We’re united, utterly bounded together in one bond: unseparated, we can never depart from each other.

YAKACH
May your faith keep you together on earth.
(to the second in commands)
You’re now in charge of this kingdom. Michael and his clan have taught you all a great skill of war. We know that war may come, but we believe you can defend yourselves against any threat. Once Mary takes in through the power of the Most high’s Spirit, we will be dwelling on earth until his mission is accomplished. But if there is a danger, do not hesitate to let us know, so that we can assist you.
(to Gabriel)
You must first announce and bring the good news to Mary before you begin your mission.
(to the Archangels)
In fact, not only that, we must all celebrate the birth of the Most High’s son before you can embark on your journey. We the Elders wish you well!

{EXT. RIVERBANK, OUKHAH – NIGHT}

Satan and Malphas are sitting on the sands; looking upon the sea.

MALPHAS 
My Lord, if the rumours are true, then we need to prepare for war.

SATAN
(slightly groans)
I’m feeling pain in me. I think I’m sick.

MALPHAS
Sick?

SATAN
Yeah

MALPHAS
How is that possible?

SATAN
I can’t explain.

MALPHAS
Could it be some spell from the Elders?

SATAN
I don’t think so, I think it’s something more than that. As you said, we need to prepare for war.

MALPHAS
You know we can’t go to battle without you, so, let’s figure out what is wrong with you first.

SATAN
Hold on, did I say we’re going to war?

MALPHAS
(with a surprised look on his face)
Yes, my lord.

SATAN
O! you mean that? Hahahaa! War, war, war, war, we are going to war.
(Malphas looks at him carefully)
I love war!

MALPHAS
Master!

SATAN
Yes?

MALPHAS
Your eyes are gradually becoming dark.

SATAN
My eyes? Hehe! Don’t worry about that, my boy. I think I’m getting better! Thanks for reminding me of war.
(looks at his feet)
That’s what I thought would happen anyway.
(Malphas’ face is full of surprised looks)

{INT. TENT, NAZARETH – NIGHT}

Mary (Kushiel) is carrying a jar of water from a corner.

Suddenly, a bright light appears in front of Mary.

Mary shivers and fall before the light.

GABRIEL
(through the light)
Do not be afraid, peace be with you! The Lord is with you and has greatly blessed you among women. You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you will name him Yeshua.

MARY
My lord, I am a virgin, how can this be?

GABRIEL
The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and for this reason, the child will be called the Son of God.

{EXT. DESERT, EARTH – DAY}

The Elders are walking in twos under the Shade of light.

CHEN 
The nature of the boy must not be known.

TIQVAH 
The messengers who will honour these things are all ready to carry out their tasks, so, that’s not a problem.

CHEN
Do you trust Joseph; the husband of Mary that much?

YAKACH
He’s a man of great integrity. He’ll respect himself and follow instructions.

CHEN
The way I’m seeing him, he doesn’t seem…

YAKACH
(interrupts)
Come on! We shouldn’t be arguing about this.

The Elders murmur and stop moving.

HUPOMONE 
(to Yakach)
What do you plan to do? We are supposed to know everything, Yakach.

YAKACH
All right! I leave it to all of us, what should we do?

CHEN
You don’t even have a plan.

YAKACH
We’ve sent three messengers that will honour his birth.

CHEN
Yes, that’s what we did.

YAKACH
According to the tradition of Israel, the child must be circumcised.

CHEN
That’s where my concern is.

YAKACH
Let us plan then.

QARA 
Simeon; a king from the clan of Gabriel, is there

AMATS 
Anna; the queen from Chamuel’s clan, is also there

QARA
Let’s use Gabriel’s clan. So, we will order him to bless and dedicate the child.

YAKACH
We will order Joseph to keep the secret, I think he’ll do it. After all, he accepted Mary’s pregnancy.

TAHOR 
What about his circumcision?

YAKACH
That’s right. Joseph must do it himself and must not disclose the child’s true nature to anyone.

ANAH
What about his birthplace?

SIMCHAH 
I think we should take them to where no man dwells so that the child’s nature can only be known by the parents.

SHALOM 
If that’s the case, how do you want the three messengers to find them when He’s born?

YAKACH
I think we’ll use a star to direct them.

KOACH 
That will alarm Satan!

YAKACH
Who cares!

HADAR 
Joseph may not like that idea, and he may want the child to be born in a public place.

YAKACH
Haha! That’s not for him to decide. We’ll frustrate him and lead him to where we desire. By the time he finds no place for the baby to be delivered, he’ll have no choice than to let our will come true.

The Elders giggle.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – NIGHT}

Satan is unconsciously lying on the floor.

Steam of gas is hovering around him.

Malphas, Eligos, Agiel, Balam, Solas, Kokabiel, Amdusias, Haagenti, Bathym, Agrat, Eisheth, Azazel, Beleth and Abyzou are standing around Satan’s unconscious body.

MALPHAS
He has been like this for days.

BALAM
The all-powerful Satan is unconscious.

MALPHAS
He began acting weird before becoming paralysed.

BELETH
This is something beyond our control.

ELIGOS
(with a shocking look on his face)
Hmm…
(quietly to himself)
Paimon told me this.

AGRAT
I think he’s changing.

EISHETH
Or maybe he’s advancing in his powers.

ABYZOU
My lord is fine, let us wait for him to get up.

HAAGENTI
We’ve been waiting since the day he fell into this state, don’t be scared, we’re not leaving here.

ABYZOU
Whatever.

{CATTLE’S CHAMBER, BETHLEHEM}

The Elders are standing around Joseph and Mary. The physical eyes cannot see the Elders.

Mary is in labour, Joseph her husband is helping her.

Suddenly, the cry of a baby sounds between the legs of Mary.

{SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH}

SATAN
(suddenly sits upright)
Hahahahahahaha! I am back!

ABYZOU
My lord?

SATAN
My children, do not be afraid. It’s me!

MALPHAS
My lord, your eyes are completely dark.

SATAN
That is who I am, now.

AGRAT
What happened to you?

SATAN
My brother has risen and his arrival has awakened me as well. Welcome, brother.
(all the demons around him are covered in great amazement)
We’re going to look for him and destroy him.

MALPHAS
My lord…

SATAN
(interrupts)
Shhhhhh!
(to all the demons)
From now on, I am your god. Call me god.
(smiles)
Don’t be afraid anymore, Michael is not a threat and we are taking back Shamayim without stress.

{CATTLE’S CHAMBER, BETHLEHEM}

JOSEPH
(carries the child and looks between its legs)
What?

MARY
(with a fainted voice)
What is it?

JOSEPH
The child has no phallus!

MARY
It’s a she?

JOSEPH
I don’t know.

MARY
What then is it?

JOSEPH
The angel said it’s a son.

MARY
It is the doings of the Lord.

JOSEPH
Fathered by no man!
(lifts the child up)

The entire Elders (unseen by Joseph and Mary) bow to the child.

Joseph covers the child with linen and lay it in a manger.

Suddenly, a light (unseen to the physical eye) flies out of the child and goes into the sky.
