First Quarter Moon

Book of Jehovih Chapter VI, Chapter VII

Chapter 6

1. When man comprehended the earth he looked upward; and Jehovih saw him
and knew the desires of his soul. So Jehovih sent his son Uz, and Uz spake, saying:

2. Hear me, O man; the mysteries of heaven and earth will I clear up before thy judgment.
Thou art the highest, and comest to the chiefest of all kingdoms; from Great Jehovih shalt
thou learn wisdom, and none shall gainsay thee.

3. Bethink thee, O man, of the magnitude of Thy Father’s kingdoms and His places in the
firmament. Save I take thee up to the heaven, thou canst not comprehend the places

4. Man then rose up in spirit and ascended into the firmament, for his spirit had
crystallized into separateness; and Uz and Es ascended with him, speaking in the voice of
the Father. And man beheld that each and everything in the firmament was orderly, and

still each to itself located. Then spake Es, saying:

5. Behold, O man! As a farmer soweth corn in one place, and wheat in another, and
roots in another, and flax–everything in a separate place; even so doth Jehovih store the
ingredients of which worlds are made–everything in its place–the substance of the iron
in one place, the substance of the stones in another, the substance of the vegetable
kingdom in another, and even so of the substance of the animal kingdom; and the oils
and sand; for He hath places in the firmament of heaven for all of them. These that
thou sawest are the a’ji and the ji’ay and the nebulae; and amidst them in places there is
se’mu also. Let no man say: Yonder is hydrogen only, and yonder oxygen only. The
divisions of the substances of His creations are not as man would make them. All
the elements are to be found not only in places near at hand, but in distant places also.

6. When the Father driveth forth His worlds in the heavens, they gather a sufficiency
of all things. So also cometh it to pass that when a corporeal world is yet new and
young it is carried forth, not by random, but purposely, in the regions suited to it.
Hence there is a time for se’mu, a time for falling nebulae, to bury deep the forests
and se’muan beds, to provide coal and manure for a time thereafter. So is there a time
when the earth passeth a region in the firmament when sand and oil are rained upon it
and covered up, and gases bound and sealed up for the coming generations of men.

7. And man said: I am ashamed in Thy sight, O Jehovih! I looked upward and said,
Behold the sky, it is nothing! Then I said: It is true, the corporeal worlds are made of
condensed nebulae; but I saw not the wisdom and glory of Thy works. I locked Thee up in
coincidences and happenings. Thy unseen world hath become seen; the unreal hath
become the real.

8. O that I had been mindful of Thee! O that I had not put Thee afar, nor imagined laws
and decrees. Teach Thou me, O Jehovih! How was the beginning of man? How was it
with the first of the living that Thou broughtest forth?

9. Jehovih said: Have I not declared Myself in the past; in My works have I not provided
thousands of years in advance? As I have shown system in the corporeal worlds, know
thou, O man, that system prevaileth in the firmament.

10. To the tree I gave life; to man I gave life and spirit also. And the spirit I made was
separate from the corporeal life.

11. Out of se’mu I made man, and man was but as a tree, but dwelling in ha’k; and I called
him Asu (Adam).

12. I looked over the wide heavens that I had made, and I saw countless millions of spirits
of the dead that had lived and died on other corporeal worlds before the earth was made.

13. I spake in the firmament, and My voice reached to the uttermost places. And there
came in answer to the sounds of My voice, myriads of angels from the roadway in
heaven, where the earth traveleth. I said to them, Behold! A new world have I created;
come ye and enjoy it. Yea, ye shall learn from it how it was with other worlds in ages

14. There alighted upon the new earth millions of angels from heaven; but many of them
had never fulfilled a corporeal life, having died in infancy, and these angels
comprehended not procreation nor corporeal life.

15. And I said, go and deliver Asu from darkness, for he shall also rise in spirit to inherit
my etherean worlds.

16. And now was the earth in the latter days of se’mu, and the angels could readily take on
corporeal bodies for themselves; out of the elements of the earth clothed they themselves,
by force of their wills, with flesh and bones. By the side of the Asuans took they on
corporeal forms.

17. And I said: Go ye forth and partake of all that is on the earth; but partake ye not of the
tree of life, lest in that labor ye become procreators and as if dead to the heavens whence
ye came.

18. But those who had never learned corporeal things, being imperfect in wisdom,
comprehended not Jehovih’s words, and they dwelt with the Asuans, and were tempted,
and partook of the fruit of the tree of life; and lo and behold they saw their own
nakedness. And there was born of the first race (Asu) a new race called man; and Jehovih
took the earth out of the travail of se’mu and the angels gave up their corporeal bodies.

19. Jehovih said: Because ye have raised up those that shall be joint heirs in heaven, ye
shall tread the earth with your feet, and walk by the sides of the new born, being guardian
angels over them, for they are of your own flesh and kin.

20. Fruit of your seed have I quickened with my spirit, and man shall come forth with a
birth-right to My etherean worlds.

21. As I have quickened the seed of the first born, so will I quicken all seed to the end of
the earth. And each and every man-child and woman-child born into life will I quicken
with a new spirit, which shall proceed out of Me at the time of conception. Neither will I
give to any spirit of the higher or lower heaven power to enter a womb, or a fetus of a
womb, and be born again.

22. As the corporeal earth passeth away, so shall pass away the first race Asu; but as I
pass not away, so shall not pass away the spirit of man.


1. Jehovih said: Let a sign be given to the inhabitants of the earth that they may
comprehend dan’ha in the firmament of heaven. For even as I bequeathed to the earth a
time for creating the living, and a time for angels to come and partake of the first fruits of
mortality and immortality, so shall man at certain times and season receive testimony
from My hosts in heaven.

2. And Jehovih caused the earth, and the family of the sun to travel in an orbit, the circuit
of which requireth of them four million seven hundred thousand years. And he placed
in the line of the orbit, at distances of three thousand years, etherean lights, the
which places, as the earth passeth through, angels from the second heaven come into its
corporeal presence. As embassadors they come, in companies of hundreds and
thousands and tens of thousands, and these are called the etherean hosts of the Most High.

3. Not as single individuals come they; not for a single individual mortal come they.

4. And Jehovih gave this sign to man on earth; which is to say: In the beginning of the
light of dan’ha, the spirits of the newly dead shall have power to take upon themselves the
semblance of corporeal bodies, and appear and talk face to face with mortals. Every three
thousand years gave Jehovih this sign on earth, that those who learned the powers and
capacities of such familiar spirits, might bear testimony in regard to the origin of man on
Jehovih said: And when it shall come to pass in any of the times of dan’ha that these signs
are manifest, man shall know that the hosts of the Most High come soon after. Let him
who will become wise, enumerate the great lights of My serpent, for in such times I set
aside things that are old, and establish My chosen anew.

5. In the time of earth, when man was brought forth from mortal to immortal life, the
earth passed beyond se’mu and the angels of heaven remained with corporeal man, but not
in the semblance of mortals, but as spirits; and by virtue of their presence, strove to make
man wise and upright before Jehovih. Upon the earth the number of such angels was
millions. To these angels spake Jehovih saying:

6. Behold the work ye have taken in hand! It was commanded to you all, to partake of all
the fruits of the earth save of the fruit of the tree of life, which is of the knowledge of the
earth and heaven, lest ye lose your inheritance in etherea.

7. Behold, ye now have sons and daughters on the earth; by your love to them are ye
become bound spirits of the lower heaven. Until ye redeem them in wisdom and power
even to the sixth generation ye shall not again arise and inherit My emancipated heavens.

8. To which end ye shall be co-workers with one another in system and order. In My
name shall ye become an organic body and known as the heaven of the earth, or lower
heaven, which shall travel with the earth.

9. And I will allot unto you a Chief, who is wise in experience in founding heavenly
kingdoms; and he shall appoint, from amongst you, officers, and messengers, and ashars,
and asaphs, and es’enaurs and ye shall be numbered and apportioned unto your labor and
places like unto My other lower heavens on other worlds.

10. And he who is Chief shall be called God of this heaven and the earth, unto his making
bestow I them.

11. And God shall have a Council and throne within his heavenly city; and the place
shall be called Hored, because it is the first kingdom of God in this firmament.

12. And God shall rule on his throne, for it is his; and his Council shall rule with him;
in My name shall they have dominion over angels and mortals belonging to the earth.

13. And God shall appoint Chiefs under him who shall go down and dwell on the earth
with mortals; and such Chiefs’labor shall be with mortals for their resurrection. And
these Chiefs shall be called Lords, for they are Gods of land, which is the lowest rank of
My commissioned Gods.

14. And God and his Lords shall have dominion from two hundred years to a thousand or
more years; but never more than three thousand years. According to the regions of dan
(light) into which I bring the earth, so shall be the terms of the office of My Gods and My

15. And God and his Lords shall raise up officers to be their successors; by him and them
shall they be appointed and crowned in My name.

16. At the termination of the dominion of My God and his Lords they shall gather
together in these, My bound heavens, all such angels as have been prepared in
wisdom and strength for resurrection to My etherean kingdoms. And these angels shall
be called Brides and Bridegrooms to Jehovih, for they are Mine and in My service.

17. And to God and his Lords, with the Brides and Bridegrooms, will I send down from
etherea ships in the time of dan; by My etherean Gods and Goddesses shall the ships
descend to these heavens, and receive God and His Lords with the Brides and

Bridegrooms, and carry them up to the exalted regions I have prepared for them.

18. And all such as ascend shall be called a Harvest unto Me, through My God and Lords.
And the time of My Harvests shall be according to each dan, which is two hundred years,
four hundred years, six hundred years, and five hundred years; and these shall be called
My lesser cycles because they are the times of the tables of prophecy which I give unto
My servants.

19. But at no other times, nor in any other way, shall My Harvests ascend to My
emancipated worlds in etherea. Seven dans have I created for each and every dan’ha; and
six generations of mortals have I given unto each dan.

20. The angels understood the commandments of Jehovih according to their knowledge
in the etherean heavens; being heirs of other planets, and having died in infancy, and
having matured in the es worlds; but they understood not the Creator according to the
practice of the lower heavenly kingdoms. Wherefore their knowledge was incomplete.

21. Jehovih said: I condemn ye not because ye have become joint procreators with the
asuans; for ye have done two services unto Me; which are to teach yourselves corporeal
things, that ye may understand and sympathize with corporeans, and, secondly, because
ye have caused the earth to become peopled with such as are capable of immortality.

22. Behold ye now what shall happen on the earth: such as are of your flesh and kin who
cohabit together shall rise in wisdom and virtue; but such of them as cohabit with the
asuans will bring forth heirs in the descending grade of life. The first shall bring forth
heirs unto everlasting life; but the second shall bring forth heirs that shall go out in

23. In the dominion of which matters your God and Lords will instruct you, that ye may,
by inspiration and otherwise, learn to control the behavior of mortals unto everlasting life.
And that these labors be not too severe upon you, I created the dans and dan’has in the
firmament, wherein ye may be relieved from the watch by other angels from other worlds
coming to exchange with you.

24. This also do I put upon you: That to rule over mortals to virtue, by your own wills
governing them in all things, is contrary to my commandments. For what honor hath any
man if made to do a thing?

25. But ye shall give mortals of My light, leaving them to choose. Better is it for them
suffer some than to grow up in ignorance of the stings of disobedience.

26. Behold, I make this a willing service on your part: because ye have bound your
affections on the earth, to your own kin, ye willingly become guardian angels over
mortals. Yet I made not a separate law unto you; as it is with you, so shall it be with the
spirits of these mortals when they are born into the es world: They will also desire to
become guardian angels over their mortal kin.

27. But these spirits, never having known My higher heavens, will be unsuitable for the
office of ashars; they would be but the blind leading the blind.

28. To prevent which, God and the Lords shall provide these spirits in the first
resurrection with places to dwell in; and with occupations and opportunities for
education. For I desire them not to remain bound to the earth, but to rise up and inherit
My etherean kingdoms.

29. And in this also shall ye be discreet in governing them, giving them the light of My
heavens with some liberty to choose and to perfect themselves. Otherwise they would

only be slaves in heaven. According to their weakness or strength, so shall ye provide for
these new spirits entering my es world.

30. Therefore such of you as are appointed by My God and My Lords as guardians over
mortals shall be called A
SHARS, and ye shall report to your respective Lords, according
to the section of the earth where ye may be. Of many watches shall be the ashars.

31. And such of you as are appointed to receive the spirits of the dead into heaven shall
be called A
SAPHS, and ye shall report to your respective Lords and their kingdoms.

32. And the ashars shall make a record of every mortal, of the grade of his wisdom and
good works; and when a mortal dieth, and his spirit is delivered to the asaphs, the record
shall be delivered with him; and the asaph, receiving, shall deliver such spirit, with the
record into such place in these heavens as is adapted to his grade, where he shall be put to
labor and to school, according to the place of the resurrections which I created.

33. As ye shall thus become organic in heaven, with rulers, and teachers, and physicians;
and with capitals, and cities, and provinces; and with hospitals, and nurseries, and
schools, and factories, even so shall ye ultimately inspire man on the earth to the same

34. And mortals that are raised up to dominion over mortals shall be called kings and
emperors. As My Gods and My Lords are called My Sons, so shall kings and emperors be
called sons of God; through him shall they be raised up to their places, and given
dominion unto My glory.
