Book of Apollo, Son of Jehovih, Chapter 8, Chapter 9

Chapter 8

1. Apollo, Son of Jehovih, said: In Jehovih’s name speak I, Apollo, God of etherea. Hear
me, O ye Gods and Lords; the power of the Father resteth in my soul; my words are of All
Wisdom. Think of this great matter: The growth of love! As a man loveth his city and his
country, what think ye Apollo hath forgotten? Have I not told it in etherea? I sprang from
the red star, the earth!

2. Wherefore shall I not take pride before Jehovih? And hold up my head in etherea,
where I have neighbors that sprang from other stars. Shall a man forget his love because
he is a God? Nay, verily. When I was mortal, I loved my neighbors; when I entered the
second resurrection, in atmospherea, I loved all the people of the earth; and when I rose to
etherea, my love expanded to a thousand worlds. But, of all places, how can I make the
earth and her heaven second in the love of my soul?

3. As a mother inventeth diversions and employment for her children, shall I not gather
fruit from Jehovih’s repositories to feed the atmospherean heavens? I came, and found ye
in a dark forest, with briars and thorns; but, behold, now, O ye Gods and Lords! The

lower heaven hath become a paradise.

4. Let me recall the philosophies I have overthrown: The false Gods and false Lords said:
It is well that there be war and destruction in heaven; otherwise, it would soon be too full!
For they saw not the higher heavens; their arguments were framed in a dark corner. And,
because of their evil inspiration, they gave mortals the same philosophy, saying: War is
justifiable, lest the earth become too full. For these dark angels shut out from mortals the
higher light of Faith in Jehovih. Justifying themselves in war, and the slaying of whom
Jehovih had created alive; by their behavior, thrusting condemnation in Jehovih’s face for
what Jehovih had done!

5. Neither knew these mortal philosophers that they were under the inspiration of spirits
of darkness; nor would they wait till the earth was full of people, to prove whether their
philosophy was true or false.

6. For, as ye of heaven were given to deeds of darkness, your kingdoms reacted on earth,
making druks out of men and women. From which have all these heavens turned from
evil ways, and become as stars of glory in Jehovih’s universe.

7. Think not that only great thunders and terrible stratagems can govern heaven and earth
righteously; for, as one man, in an army, may cause a panic; or one brave man’s upraised
hand lead a nation on to victory, so can ye, O Gods and Lords, by wisdom, in the smallest
of Jehovih’s plans, rule over heaven and earth, for the glory of His everlasting kingdoms.

8. That which I declare unto you, go ye and declare throughout heaven; for the fruit of
your teaching shall enrich the earth people, through their guardian spirits; and they shall,
likewise, go about preaching amongst themselves.

Chapter 9

1. When Apollo, Jehovih’s Son, had finished his labor, the dawn of dan, God foresaw
that his own resurrection, and his people with him, had come. So he sent his proper
officers to the libraries of atmospherea, to learn who of all the etherean hosts should
be selected to remain as God, and who as Lords, for the next four hundred years.

2. In twenty days the examiners returned and came before the throne of God, and
the Council of Gau. Za’dukawaski, chief speaker, said: By the grace of Jehovih,
Creator, we stand before thee, God of heaven and earth. We find, by the ancient
precepts, adjudged wise in the foundation of atmospherea, one Gur, highest and most
proficient of all the hosts of heaven, to be anointed God for the next four hundred years.

3. God said: I remember Gur, from Magel, in Sooftus, in etherea, God of Ra’yatuf and a’ji,
seventy-two. Let the marshals go to him and acquaint him with Jehovih’s decrees, in the
name of God. And they shall provide suitable conveyance for Gur to come to Gau,
according to his rate.

4. So the marshals, ten thousand in number, besides ten thousand musicians, went and
brought Gur before the throne of God, coming in an otevan, prepared for the purpose, and
adorned with one thousand pillars of light.

5. God said: I salute thee, O Gur, in the name of Jehovih, Creator. Behold Apollo!

6. Apollo stretched forth his hand, and Gur came and shook hands with him, standing by
the throne. Gur said: That I have lived to see this day, O Jehovih, I am blessed indeed!
Thy will, O God, and Jehovih’s, be done!

7. God said: Behold, the dawn of dan is within thirty days to end, and all who choose, and
are prepared for the third resurrection, shall be taken up to etherea. Besides thyself, O
Gur, there are two hundred thousand ethereans who have volunteered to remain another
four hundred years in these atmospherean heavens, and on the earth. From them thou
shalt select one thousand Lords, and bestow them with kingdoms, over mortals. Two
thousand millions of angels will raise up with me to etherea.

8. To thee, O Gur, I bequeath two thousand millions of atmosphereans who have been
initiated in the second resurrection. And of the first resurrection, two hundred and fifty
millions; and of fetals, three hundred millions; and besides these, the inhabitants of the
earth (men, women and children) seven hundred millions.

9. God ceased speaking, and Gur said: Thy will be done, O Jehovih! Thereupon the
es’enaurs sang, and the trumpeters played the M
the marshals and messengers filed before the throne; and a light of golden fire came
down from etherea, cast out by the Gods of Helmatia, Orian arc of Tanaya, and it fell
about the throne of God, so that many could not look thereon, because of the brilliancy.

10. God raised up, and Apollo by his side. God said: I stretch forth my hand unto Thee, O
Jehovih! Behold Thy Son, Gur, God of Ra’yatuf, in etherea, an earth-born, forty thousand
years inhabitant of Thy emancipated realms. By Thy power, and in Thy name, O Jehovih,
I proclaim him God of heaven and earth, to bestow Thee and Thy kingdoms on angels
and men! Be with him, O Father, Creator, that he may add unto Thy glory, forever!

11. God took off the triangle, and hung it on Gur’s (God’s) neck, saying: I now bestow
thee with the heirloom of the Gods of the red star, the triangle of the ancients. And that
thou mayest be still further honored, behold, one higher than I, even Apollo, shall weave
a crown for thy head.

12. Apollo walked to the left hand, and raised his hand upward, and there came from
unseen space a flame of yellow light, and lodged on his hand, and he turned it but half
around, and lo, a crown with sparkling gems stood upon his fingers’ ends. Apollo said:

13. Incomprehensible All Light! Weave me a crown for Thy Son, God of heaven
and earth! And even whilst he spake, it was done, and he placed it on God’s (Gur’s) head.
And God went and sat in the midst of the throne, saying: Throne of Thy throne,
O Jehovih! All things are Thine! For my resting-place, to do Thy will, this shall be.

14. During the ceremonies, the music was timed accordingly; and when the new God was
crowned, the multitude of a thousand millions applauded with great joy.

15. When all was quiet, God rose up from the throne, saying to Apollo and to him who
had been God: In Jehovih’s name, come and honor my throne! Accordingly, they both sat
down on the right hand of God.

16. God said: In thirty days the dawn of dan will end. Let the marshals, through the
messengers, proclaim the resurrection of two thousand millions to the etherean heavens
on that day. Proclaim it in all the heavens of the earth; inviting all to come who can; for it
shall be a day of the feast of glory. But say not to any one that there hath been a change of
Gods, nor that great Apollo will rise also, lest sorrow come upon the people. The
marshals then selected messengers, a great number, and sent them throughout the heavens
of the earth, proclaiming the commandments of God.

17. God spake further, saying: For thirty days shall the Council deliberate on my ten
thousand Lords, selecting and allotting them; and I will crown them in the name of the

18. Apollo then said: Now will I clothe myself in strange colors, that none shall know me,
and during the thirty days I yet tarry, I will go around about the earth, that I may again
look upon the star of my birth.

19. And he who had given up the throne said: Thy joy shall be my joy also. I, too, will
again visit the star of my birth.

20. Accordingly, God said: Joy be unto ye twain, in Jehovih’s name! Behold, I will throw
a thick blanket over the throne, and ye shall change your attire, and when I withdraw it, ye
shall walk forth unknown.

21. And this was done.
