Book of Thor, Son of Jehovih, Chapter 5, Chapter 6

Chapter 5

1. Peace and prosperity were established on earth and in heaven by the time of the
expiration of the dawn of Thor. And now came the time for his own ascent, with his
hosts, leaving the earth and her heavens in care of God and his Lords.

2. So Thor, Son of Jehovih, sent swift messengers to etherea, asking to be delivered; and
asking for the deliverance of six thousand million Brides and Bridegrooms to Jehovih.

3. See We’ing, Goddess of Hotosk, in etherea, was appointed by the Council in Buru, to
descend for Thor and his hosts, and his six thousand millions.

4. Accordingly, See We’ing built her ship and gathered in her hosts for the journey,
her ten millions. This, then, was the make of her ship, which she named Harp, to wit:

5. The photosphere was flat to the north and south, but oval east and west; the openings
were on the flat sides, with passages through. The crescent described a circle of three
thousand four hundred miles, and the depth of the harp north and south was three hundred
miles. The pillars of fire that ascended from the midst were one thousand seven hundred
miles high.

6. The stars within the photosphere were provided with five points; and each star had one
million chambers, one chamber being allotted as the habitation of one Bride or
Bridegroom; and there were seven thousand of these stars.

7. The frame-work was crystalline, and opaque, and transparent, and of all possible
colors, and shades, and tints. Now, besides the stars and their chambers, the base of the
crescent was provided with a salon sufficient for one million musicians, and they were
thus situated.

8. God had knowledge of the coming of See We’ing, and had commanded information to
be sent throughout atmospherea, and to the Lords located on earth, inviting all who chose,
to come and witness the ascent. And there came, besides the Brides and Bridegrooms,
two thousand million angels; many not yet delivered from the first resurrection.

9. So it came to pass, See We’ing, Goddess of Hotosk, came down in her ship of fire,
even to the foundation of Gau; came in great magnificence, and was received by Thor and
by God and His Lords.

10. And she ascended the throne, and performed the marriage rite for the six thousand
millions. And after that a recreation of one day was proclaimed in Gau, during which time
the atmosphereans and ethereans mingled freely together.

11. On the day following, Thor accompanied See We’ing into her ship; and their hosts
went in also, being nearly seven thousand millions. And then, amidst a rain of etherean
flowers, See We’ing started her fire ship upward.

12. God and his hosts remaining in Gau saluted in the sign, JEHOVIH FOREVER! Which was
properly answered by the ascending millions.

13. Then on its axis turned the great ship, rising and turning, higher and higher. And in a
little while only an ascending star was seen, and then it disappeared in the distance.

14. Thus fulfilled Thor his great mission in dawn to the earth and her heavens.

Chapter 6

1. Again the earth and heaven prospered for another season of two hundred years, and the
next dan there were delivered five thousand million souls. And new Gods and Lords
succeeded; and they also prospered, but not so well. The next harvest was four thousand
million souls.

2. But, again, false Lords and false Gods began to set up kingdoms of their own, in
heaven, and in the cities of mortals. And, lo and behold, every one called himself either
Thor or Apollo. And the spirits who manifested in the temples, and for the oracles, all
gave one of these names. And mortals who were obsessed, believed themselves to be the
re-incarnation of Apollo or Thor; and the obsessing spirits so called themselves. Others,
more intelligent, said: Have not the prophets foretold there was to be a second coming
of Apollo? And are not these spirits, who appear through the sar’gis, the very person?

3. So great became the superstition of the nations of the earth, that in the fall of a leaf they
found proof of the second coming of Apollo or Thor. Many of the spirits deserted the
second resurrection, in heaven, and returned to the earth, to wait for information
concerning the coming event, as they supposed, though there was no event coming.

4. Jehovih said: All corporeal worlds pass through the age of too much belief. As I
gave to man judgment, that he might examine and weigh a matter, so runneth he into
unbelief. Then My angels go to him and show him wherein he believed too little; but,
lo, he goeth to the other extreme, believing all things, and not using his judgment.

5. God said: Why will not men and angels be patient, and wait till a matter is
proven meritorious before they pursue it to extremes? The same sun shineth, the same
stars stand in the heavens, and the earth traveleth steadily on her way; yea, her
winds blow, her summers and winters come as in the olden time, yet man setteth up
that a great wonder is near at hand. And no wonder cometh, and nothing new is near.

6. How shall I stay them, O Jehovih? Their desires for Apollo call down millions of
spirits from my places of resurrection. And in trials and hardships they fall, and become
suitable prey for designing false Gods and false Lords.

7. But there came no other salutation than the echo of God’s own words. So God and his
Lords bewailed the darkness of earth and her heavens.

8. But high up in the etherean heavens, came the Light of Jehovih; came the Voice of
Jehovih, saying:

9. Hear your Creator, O ye Gods and Goddesses! Behold the magnitude of My works! I
labor not for the profit of this man or that man; nay, nor for this people nor that people;
nor for the inhabitants of one star and one heaven; but for the glory of millions of stars
and millions of heavens.

10. Doth not one corporeal man bewail a shower of rain? and yet, his neighbor
rejoiceth thereat. One man prayeth for sunshine, and another for shade. Think not that I
labor for each one separately, but for the perfection of the whole. Wherefore, then, shall
the God of earth and his Lords bewail the darkness that falleth on the earth in this day?

11. I have prepared places of darkness in the etherean firmament, and places of light; and
My corporeal worlds must travel through them, for so I created them. And these places of
darkness and places of light are as changes of seasons for My harvests.

12. Now doth the earth pass in deep darkness, for I fructify the races of men in new
growth, corporeally, for things that shall come after. As they absorb from the a’ji of
My places, in this age, so, also, do their souls become full of superstition and darkness.

13. Thus went the earth into great darkness during the last six hundred years of the cycle
of Thor, and there was no harvest from her for the etherean heavens. But the spirits
deserted atmospherea in millions and millions, and went down to the earth, to dwell with
mortals, and to find places on the corporeal earth where to live.

14. And, save to the I’hins, the Light of Jehovih was shut out from men; thus ambition for
improvement was at an end; they became as drones and vagabonds; and, when they died,
their spirits continued to lie about in the places of their mortal life. And many of these
spirits persuaded mortals to suicide, and they killed themselves by thousands and tens of
thousands. Nor was there courage more amongst men to endure anything under the sun.
They wanted to be with the spirits of the dead, to talk with them, to see them, and to be
rid of earth trials.

15. Neither had the spirits that congregated on earth any knowledge of the higher
heavens; nor could they impart knowledge as to where they dwelt, or how they employed
their time, for, in fact, they did nothing useful to heaven or earth, nor even to themselves.

16. Thus ended the cycle of Thor; and it was three thousand two hundred years.


Plate 32.
