Book of Wars Against Jehovih Chapter 39, Chapter 40

Chapter 39

1. Jehovih spake to God, His Son, in Craoshivi, saying: Prepare thou, for the fall of ji’ay
in atmospherea. The earth and her heavens enter Loo-sutsk, seventy years in the rates of
seven hundred; forty years in five hundred; twenty years in a’ji! Be thou advised; for
Craoshivi shall fall to thirty, and Hored be buried in the earth. Call thou My Son, Ahura,
and reveal My words!

2. So God, in Craoshivi, advised his High Council, and also sent messengers in haste of
Vara-pishanaha, to Ahura, and acquainted him. After this God propounded in Council:
Anuhasaj, what can Craoshivi do for him? Thereupon the members spake at great length,
more than a thousand of them.

3. So God decreed: A commission to wait on Anuhasaj and inform him of his danger,
and offer to succor and save him. This that followeth is the message thus sent, to wit:

4. To thee, O Anuhasaj, greeting in Jehovih’s name, and by our love assured. Thou art
adjudged to be in perilous condition. Behold, one hundred and thirty years’pressure will
fall on the heavens of the earth; Craoshivi will go down to the depths of hada. Reach up
thy hands, and I will come and save thee and thy kingdom. Wilt thou withdraw thine

armies and permit the resurrection of thy lowest grades?

5. Anuhasaj answered this in these words: Who art thou that thus assaileth my peaceful
kingdom? Thou pretended son of the Void Nothingness? Call thou on me as becometh
one with thy small kingdom, and if thou need help for thyself, or for thy paupers, I will
give unto thee!

6. Thereupon God returned this answer, to wit: Be thou patient with me, O brother: If it
be that I am proved to be in darkness, and thou in the light, I will make thee ample
amends. If on the other hand I be in the light and thou in darkness, I will say naught that
would wound thee. If thou wilt apply thyself diligently to solve the place of the earth
and her heavens thou wilt find in truth the coming pressure whereof I told thee. Think
not that my words are spoken at random, but try them by prophecy and by mathematics.

7. As to the coming danger, it is an easy matter to estimate. A thousand years ago, when
thou first established thyself and thy heaven, Hored possessed an average grade above
fifty, all told. And there were four thousand millions of them.

8. In two hundred years thou hadst six thousand millions, and the grade was raised to
sixty-five. In the next two hundred years the number was nearly doubled, but the grade
had fallen to forty. And in two hundred years later the inhabitants had nearly doubled
again, but the grade had fallen to twenty-eight. In the next two hundred years, the increase
in numbers was at the same rate as the decrease in the grade.

9. Now behold, thy twenty-eight thousand millions, more than half of whom are in Hored,
are below grade ten. And when thou didst first possess Hored, a ten grade could not
survive thereon. Think not that some accidental thing will raise so great a weight.

10. Look into this matter, as to what thou hast done! Thou hast persuaded thy hosts not to
look up to Jehovih and His kingdoms, and lo, they incline downward to the earth. Yea,
they have already filled the earth with war and destruction.

11. Thou shalt not hope to throw these things on thy Gods, for they will turn against thee
and accuse thee. At present they are content to found kingdoms of their own. But they
will also come to an end. Because they have seceded from thee, let it be evidence that all
the highest grades will follow in the same way.

12. As for Craoshivi, her lowest grades are above fifty, and therefore self-sustaining; her
highest grades are ninety-nine and her average eighty-eight. And hundreds of millions of
these are such as my Lords have rescued from thy bondage; others, such Faithists on the
earth as thy false Gods put to death for refusing to bow to thee. And have they not proved
it is better to suffer death than to renounce faith in Jehovih? Otherwise they had now been
within the company of thy slaves, toiling in darkness.

13. Yea, my kingdom is made up of those that were despised and abused; and of those
that thy Gods slew in war, chaotic and mad. For my asaphs followed thy cruel wars and
gathered in the spirits of the slain, whom thou wouldst not have. Thou callest them poor
still. Why, so they are; they are washed white as snow; and because they have been taught
to keep on casting aside all accumulation, save knowledge and goodness of heart, in
which they are rich indeed.

14. They would come to thee now in pity to take thy people by the hand and deliver them
away from thee and darkness. And if thy slaves be not delivered away from thee, they will
surely, soon or late, turn upon thee and cast thee into hell. I pray thee, therefore, assume
thou conversion to Jehovih, and cast thy kingdom upon Him whilst thou mayst. For I

have the power and the means to deliver thee and thy slaves. Yea, I will give thee a new
name, and hide thee away, that they cannot find thee. And thou shalt be one with my in
my holy place.

15. To this Anuhasaj made no reply, and so the matter remained.

Chapter 40
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.
