Book of Wars Against Jehovih Chapters XL and XLI

Chapter XL

1. In Vara-pishanaha Ahura had now toiled nearly two thousand years with his people,
who for a great part had been drujas, but were now high in the grades. Of them, more than
two thousand millions had been raised into light; had become Brides and Bridegrooms to
Jehovih, and had been delivered into the etherean worlds.

2. But Ahura suffered not his dominions to be depleted, but did after the manner of God
in Craoshivi, and sent down to hada and to the earth and gathered in, both the fallen
angels of De’yus and his false Gods, and also the chaotic and foul-smelling spirits, wild
and frenzied, and vengeful; and Ahura had them brought to Vara-pishanaha and there
treated, and nursed and restored and put to school and to factories, and taught and
developed; hundreds of millions of them becoming bright, wise and of great love and

3. God sent to Ahura, saying: Greeting to thee in the name of Jehovih. Because of the
coming darkness which will soon press upon atmospherea from every quarter, and the
trials that will be put upon Gods and angels, let us unite our heavenly kingdoms! Let us
bring our plateaux together, and thy kingdom shall be my kingdom, and mine shall be
thine; and one of us shall be manager in heaven, and the other shall descend to hada and
to the earth, when the great darkness is on.

4. To this Ahura replied: Greeting to thee, God of the heavens of the earth, and with love
and most high reverence. There is wisdom in thy design. I will do with thee whatsoever
thou demandest, to fulfill this great work.

5. So God, of Craoshivi, and Ahura, brought their forces to bear on their respective
plateaux, to unite them. And this was the proceeding, for their places were two thousand
miles apart, to the east and south-west; and the one, Vara-pishanaha, seven thousand
miles below Craoshivi:

6. For the coming pressure would drive them both down near the earth’s surface; to steer
Vara-pishanaha to the eastward, would bring one over the other; and to lower the grade of
Craoshivi would bring the twain in contact. And the inhabitants of both dominions
were so high in power and wisdom that their presence was higher than the place
they inhabited. So that the element of the plateaux was all that was required to be moved.

7. To find the power required, and to arrange the ranks for the proceeding, God appointed
officers and set them to work, and the officers reported back that the work could be
completed in twelve years. And Ahura united with God; and there were engaged in this
labor three thousand million angels. And they made a bridge betwixt the two plateaux,
and it so connected them that millions of angels could pass and repass objectively whilst
the work was going on.

8. Yet God’s labors and Ahura’s labors in receiving the spirits of the earth, of the
Faithists, and of others from the regions of hada, ceased not, lagged not. Their
thousands of otevans sailed the heavens along in every way, gathering in the unfortunate.

9. And now that the self-Gods in hada had quarreled amongst themselves and separated,
De’yus’blockade was broken of its own accord. His mighty standing army against
Jehovih’s believers had melted away; and the otevans sped hither and yonder unmolested.
And they gathered in many a thousand; yea, tens of thousands, of De’yus’highest raised
angels. The lowest would not come; they had been taught to hate with vengeance Jehovih
and His worshippers; to look upon all ills as from Jehovih; to look upon all good delights
and blessings as the gifts of De’yus, the Lord their God.

10. Suffice it to say, in twelve years’time the great heavens, Craoshivi and Varapishanaha, were united and become as one place. And there was a time of rejoicing and
delight; great recreation and communion; great rites and ceremonies, and worshipping
and rejoicing before Jehovih.

11. Already was the pressure of ji’ay upon the heavens and the earth. Hored was fast
falling toward the earth; De’yus’highest raised had already gone; his kingdom was
becoming a kingdom of fools and idlers, a most dangerous class when once want and
starvation come upon them.

12. De’yus, still stubborn, and, withal, hoping for a change from some cause he saw not,
had now no longer time to quarrel with his truant Gods, but from day to day, hour to hour,
was kept at the full strain to avert the threatened doom.

13. Meanwhile, the false Gods, his own one-time pupils, were now heaping into his
distracted kingdom millions and millions of drujas, who had been taught on the earth that
all that was required of them was to call on the Savior, Anubi, and the Lord God, and that
when they died they would go straight to glory to dwell on the holy hill of the Lord God.
And these poor creatures the self-Gods now applauded, helping them on, saying: Yea, go
on; your Savior, Anubi, will open the gate and pass you in. Henceforth, forever, ye shall
do nothing but bow to De’yus.

14. And these spirits of darkness, like idiots, were bowing all the time, day and night,
doing nothing but bowing, and saying: Blessed Anubi! He can save me! Glory to the
Lord our God! Then they would begin again: Blessed Anubi! My Savior! Glory be to
De’yus! For this was all they knew; neither would they hear nor see else; they were
as wild people; with outbursting eyes, looking for Anubi; looking for De’yus; but
bowing incessantly in all directions; millions of them, tens of millions; delirious angels!

15. Anubi gave up his place in consequence, and in fear of them; and his heavenly city
was like a house without a keeper, where throngs go in and out, around about, forever
shouting: O my blessed Savior, Anubi! Glory be to the Lord God.

16. But Anubi was with the false Lord God, striving to help him find some means of
escape or safety.

Chapter XLI

1. Darker and darker, the hadan fields palled before the touch of Jehovih’s hand, to try the
self-assumed Lord God and his heavenly works. As if an epoch new and terrible had
come to one so audacious, who foremost in heaven and earth had sought to banish the
worship and the name of the Great Spirit from mortals, and give them instead a heavenly
ruler in the image of man.

2. For before this, all nations knew the office of Gods and Lords, and reverenced them as
Jehovih’s high officers, raised up spirits of the dead, wise and powerful. But now, in five

great divisions of the earth, satan’s hadan chief had bound his name in mortals, with
threatened penalties, and even death, for mentioning Jehovih’s name. And, to put them
to the test, made oaths on burning flesh, that whoso would not eat thereof should die.

3. For this was the criterion before the courts that they that refused fish and flesh food, or
would not pollute the body by noxious drinks and smoke, intoxicating to the sense, were
possessed of Jehovihian worship, and so deserved torture and death.

4. So the names of Lord and God, and Lord God, and De’yus, had now become for a
thousand years fixed in mortals’minds as the Creator, a large man sitting on a throne in
Hored, his heavenly seat, watched and guarded by his son, Anubi, keeper of the scales,
and of the gate to heaven. To make a plausible story of which, the angels, through oracles,
and magicians, and priests, and prophets, proclaimed that: In the beginning God created
the heavens and the earth, and all things therein and thereon. And he was tired, and
rested; and, as if creation was a completed work, left certain laws to run the wonderful
machine whilst he sat afar off, looking on; smiling at the pranks of mortals, and their
failure to understand him, with a devil and a horrid fire to torture their souls, if they sang
not in praise of this compounded, false Lord God.

5. Thus turned he, their false God, the voice of mortals from Him Who is Ever Present,
Whose speech hath every soul heard, Whose Presence moveth all things in heaven and
earth! The false God turned them to sing and pray to himself, so he should clutch and
bind their souls in endless slavery; untaught, half fed; as drudges, to bring into his capital,
provender and building stones to glorify him forever.

6. Over Jaffeth, far and wide, this traitor to Jehovih had sealed in stone, and papyrus, and
wood, and sacred cloth, his name, Ho-Joss, to suit the Panic voice, as whilst in Vind’yu he
made them engrave it Dyaus, to fit the Vedic tongue; and thence in Fonece to suit the
higher-spirited race, Adonia-Egad, and go over to Heleste, and, in less distince and
bastard Greece, whisper Zeus, saying: These words are watch-words to gain Anubi’s ear,
and turn the scales for endless paradise. Go ye, slaves, engrave my names; and, in mortal
libraries, register my great exploit, of how I created the world!

7. And make me spotless pure, letting sin into the races of men by Osiris’cunning tale of
Eve’s weakness by fault of the earth. For I am not come like Jehovih’s captains, spirits
sent to rule men for a season, but a very God of blood and bones, who once, in terrible
anger, flooded the earth to drown my disobedient sons and daughters. Make ye them to
tremble and draw long breath when my name is spoken, or, by mine own soul, I will hurl
heaven and earth into endless chaos!

8. Pressing downward ji’ay came, slowly and surely, the very motion spake as a million
tongues, serious, awful. For many, on every side, of the hosts of Anuhasaj were deserting
him. As one in a small way may see on a sinking ship, how the expert swimmers, with
strong arms, leap into the water boldly and swim for the far-off shore, whilst the helpless,
in frantic rage, cluster fast upon the distracted officers, blockading them from doing good.
So began the tumult in the fast descending plateau, Hored, which was increased a
hundred-fold by the flood of drujas cast upon De’yus’kingdom by his own traitorous false

9. De’yus’generals and captains first tried music to hold the forty thousand millions to
peace and order; but the es’enaurs themselves took fright, and by the million fled, flying
down to the earth to Osiris’, or Te-in’s, or Sudga’s kingdoms, and over-flooding mortals

with ghostly revelries. Next, by parades, and rites, and great processions, did De’yus’
officers seek to divert the panic-stricken millions.

10. Thus for years this maddened God with wonderful strength of will almost held his
own, inventing tens of thousands of stratagems. But at last, in the downward course,
Hored touched upon the corporeal earth; and suddenly, as if startled by the shock, the
frantic millions screamed, and then, alas, all order died.

11. The doors of hell were opened! Anuhasaj’s throne and capital, with all their splendor,
the maddened mob broke loose to pillage or to destroy. And then rushed in the faultfinders, shouting: Thou lying God, but like a man, who art thou? And thou, Anubi!
Deceiving judge! A thousand horrid deaths to thee!

12. But the unlearned drujas knew not who was rank or officer, God or judge, but seized
the pale and trembling De’yus and Anubi, and more than a million officers, overpowered
them, by ten millions to one, pressed on by the foul-smelling crowd. And now, with
blows and kicks and cuffs, on every side began the awful fray. Till stretched as wide as
the earth, the countless millions were plunged into hell. Hereupon, to right and left, was
now an unceasing combat, and all the hosts of the Lord God were sworn for vengeance
against any one they came against.

13. Then came the torturers, casting into the hells most offensive smells and suffocating
gases, crammed in the nose and mouth of their victims. No more were the Lord God and
Anubi seen, but swallowed up in measureless darkness, where every soul sought nothing
good, but labored hard to give unto others excruciating tortures for vengeance sake
