Book of Apollo, Son of Jehovih Chapter 4, Chapter 5

Chapter 4

1. Hear me, O man, and angels; from my words learn to be wise and deep perceiving. He
who standeth in darkness, seeth not; the time of Jehovih, none can comprehend. In the
Light should be the delight of all men. But who practiceth to his highest knowledge?
Before my days, time was no nearer the beginning of the universe than now. There were
men who believed that with death all would be ended to every man; and Jehovih sent
angels to prove them in their folly; and though they saw them, and talked with them face
to face, many would not believe.

2. And in the lower heaven they were the same; they would not believe in a higher
heaven. And though ethereans came to them to prove them in their folly, and talked with
them face to face, yet many would not believe.

3. I searched the disbelievers, to understand their souls; and I found they were begotten in
disharmony. They prided themselves in their wisdom; but that which they called wisdom
was as a serpent in the soul.

4. Jehovih spake to me, saying: Hear thy Creator, O My Son: In atmospherea thou shalt
appoint ten thousand Lords, with ten thousand kingdoms; and the earth and the
inhabitants thereof shall be divided between them.

5. And thou shalt build a new kingdom in heaven, and call it Gau, and it shall be thy
judgment seat, with a Council of one hundred thousand men and women.

6. And all thy Lords shall be called Apollo! And they shall inspire men to make images of
stone and wood. And the images shall have short arms and long legs; and nails instead
of claws on the fingers, and well-formed mouths, with shape for motion of the cheeks.

7. And thy Lords shall find the loo’is who have been preparing these matters by birth; and
the loo’is shall lead the angels around about amongst mortals, finding the most comely formed men and women and young children. And when they have thus chosen them, they shall report the matter to the Lords, and they shall send ethereans to those mortals who
are selected, and they shall be quickened by signs and miracles.

8. And it shall be proven before all the nations of the earth, and their kings and queens
and governors, that the comeliness of the forms are pleasant in My sight, wherefore I
come to them. And those who are thus selected shall sing and dance by entrancement; so
that kings and queens shall be overcome by the achievements. And those that dance shall

be made to float in the air, and sail about in the dance.

9. For I will turn the judgment of man to beautify himself; and, in so doing, he shall learn
to perceive beauty and harmony in My works.

Chapter 5

1. Think not, O man, the Gods always deliver the nations of the earth in a day or by
miracles. They go to the foundation of a matter; they make man a servant to help deliver
himself. They stir up the nations in rites and ceremonies first; then come after, and
appropriate the rites and ceremonies. And the women look on, receiving the spirit of the
matter in their souls, the which entaileth on their offspring that which is desired by the

2. With the hosts of high heaven, unseen by mortals, the Lords stir up the whole world. In
one generation, behold, a new race is born. Man is unfitted for dangerous war, and no
longer the delight of drujas hanging around. And the drujas, and the familiars, turn from
the peaceful earth (to them stale and unprofitable in bloody entertainments), to find their
own petty kingdoms broken down and gone.

3. Be wise, O man, and ye angels of earth! Hear the voice of thy brother, God of
three worlds! I will tell thee a great secret: These are the words of thy Creator: Man and
woman are pro-creators! Whom they beget, are theirs, saith Jehovih. Not for a day, but
forever! Take heed of thy offspring, O woman! Take heed, O man! Wilt thou be
entailed with druj, to pull thee down? Wilt thou choose offspring to glorify Jehovih?

4. Have not thy people boasted, O earth? Have they not said: O the poor ancients! What
of them? Will they turn away from the idols of Apollo, and set up on their own account?
Can the people hand down a name and models to live forever?

5. So I founded Gau in the place Hored had been, extending over Jaffeth, Shem and Ham;
and the rest of the atmospherean heaven I divided amongst my ten thousand Lords and
Lordesses, whom I selected and ordained in the manner of the ancients.

6. And the Lords established themselves in kingdoms, both on earth and in heaven. And
they inspired kings and queens to erect images in the temples, and the images were given
a name signifying Harmony, Symmetry and Music (Apollo). And the names varied in
many countries, because of the languages of the people; but the significance was that
these three entities comprised the All Light, the Creator, Jehovih!

7. And mortals were taught by the inspiration of angels how to make the images, for there
were no corporeans sufficiently perfect for models.

8. According to the perfection of the images, so were they reckoned favored by Jehovih;
and the sign of Jehovih’s approval was manifested in the time of the sacred dance given
by the su’is selected; which was, if the whirling dance caused many women to fall down
by enchantment, then was Jehovih pleased.

9. Hear me, O man. The enchantment of the women was what the Lords desired, for the
impression of the soul of woman shapeth the unborn child.

10. Wherefore, they worshipped blindly before the idols, not being sufficiently wise
to understand how Jehovih was laying down the foundation for the coming race.

11. O ye of little wisdom, compared with the Lords of heaven! How ye are puffed up in
judgment, not knowing the race whence ye sprang! Jehovih’s Gods and Lords mold the

inhabitants of the earth as clay is molded in a potter’s hand. They set them up and show
them the way, and say to them: Go!

12. And mortals go on a little while, like a young child that tottereth and falleth. And
again the Lords set them up; and man, in ingratitude, forgetteth and denieth his God.

13. The unseen angels lead man and woman together, and say: Marry! And they wed,
and bring forth of the Lord. Then man inquireth: What meanest thou: Bring forth of
the Lord? But his judgment is under a cloud; he flattereth himself that Jehovih
created him, and then went away; and since then he hath been his own master!

14. O man, what is thy folly! How has thou found such cunning ways to put off thy
Creator? What profit more hast thou to put Him away than to try and perceive Him in all
things? Why wilt thou sing of man who is in darkness, and of the earth, which is but a
fraction of the Great I Am? Hopest thou not for wisdom, so that guardian angels may go
away and rest?

15. Why shall they stand over thee day and night, to keep away familiars and fetals and
drujas? Who shall close thy mouth against falsehold, and thy lips against cursing thy
Creator? Hopest thou not, O man, that a wiser age will follow? When shall man learn
harmony, symmetry and music? Who will hire a musician that forever putteth his
instrument out of tune? Why shall the Gods applaud men or angels who live not attuned
to the All Highest?

16. Show me one who is as good as he understandeth to be; that liveth as wisely as his
goodness desireth he should. He will understand my words; I can come to him and inspire
him with great wisdom. He will comprehend the love a God hath over mortals; and the
patience of the toiling Lords and angels.

17. Hear me, O man! I will answer thee a great matter: The angels of heaven who are
good, labor for those beneath them. This is their work, day and night. Think not that they
go away to idleness forever. To the etherean, industry becometh rest; to those who have
attained to be Gods there is spontaneous growth forever. Remember this and be wise. To
the atmospherean and to mortals, idleness of soul leadeth downward forever! Remember
this also, and be wise.

18. Behold the rose and the lily; they are perfect in their order. Being one with Jehovih,
they painted not themselves. Let thy soul practice with thy Creator, and thou shalt become
one with Him, even His Son. Find thou the symmetry of flesh, the symmetry of the spirit;
the harmony of music, and consider wisely thy behavior.

19. The star of Jehovih is within thy soul; feed it, O man, and thou, O angel of heaven,
and it will grow to be a God! Rob it, or starve it, and thou shalt remain nothing. It is weak
and dim in the vain; it is bright and of great power in him who forgetteth himself in
laboring for others.
