New Moon

God’s Book of Ben Chapters 7 and 8

Chapter 7

1. Esfoma said: I am the signs of the times.

2. By my face the prophets foretell what is to be.

3. I am the living mathematics; the unseen progress of things speaking to the senses of

4. My name is: THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.

5. Why have ye, the inhabitants of the earth, and ye angels of the heavens, not beholden
me in my march?

6. I called out in the days of the pyramids: O ye kings and mighty ones! Behold the signs
of the times!

7. And ye men of great learning, give ear; a voice speaketh in the wind!

8. Behold, Osiris and Isis shall go down. Anubi shall not judge the people of the

9. I sent a storm into colleges of learning; the wise professors held up their heads and

10. I doubt the person of Osiris! I doubt Isis! Are they merely a principle?

11. The prophets looked here and looked there. They said: Behold the signs of the times!
Let us measure the increase in the growth of skepticism to these ancient Gods.

12. They said: Osiris shall go down; and so shall Isis and Anubi, and Baal, and Ashtaroth,
and Thammus.

13. But kings heard not; they called their councils for stern legislation.

14. They saw, but denied my person and the power of my hand.

15. Man calleth out: Give me a key for prophecy. Show me the way to find the destiny of
Gods and angels and mortals.

16. Show me the key for the rise and fall of nations and empires.

17. Then I come forth over all the land. Man beginneth to doubt, then to disbelieve, and
then to deny the popular Gods and Saviors of his forefathers.

18. They will not see which way the wind bloweth; with strong arms and bloody hands
they raise up against Jehovih.

19. Then they go down in destruction; they and their Gods are known no more.

20. Jehovih hath said: All things are like a tree; which springeth up from a little seed to
become mighty; which beareth fruit for a season, and then falleth and is turned to dust.

21. One by one My Gods, and My false Gods, rise up and are powerful for a season, and
then are swept away in Esfoma’s hands.

22. Behold My thousands of Saviors, which I have sent to raise up the inhabitants of the
earth. Where are they this day?

23. I give to mortals Gods and Lords and Saviors; according to the time and place of the
earth in My ethereans, so, bestow I them.

24. But when they have fulfilled their time, lo, I take away their Gods and Lords and
Saviors. Not suddenly, nor without signs of the times of their going.

Chapter 8


1. Es said: The light of Jehovih touched on the earth, and the heavens about were stirred
to the foundation. Things past were moved forward. His voice was from the depth of
darkness to the summit of All Light.

2. Nations that had not known Him, now knew Him. Acceptable, and with loud
rejoicings, they shouted: Jehovih! Jehovih! Almighty and Everlasting! Glory be to Thee
on High! Creator, Father! all praise to Thee forever.

3. And Jehovih went far and near swiftly, quickening with a new power both the living
and the dead. And the peoples raised up, and heard His voice from every corner, calling:
Come forth! Come forth! O My beloved.

4. And in the stirring up of things long past, it was as if a cloud of dust and darkness, foul
and poisonous, overspread heaven and earth, was to be cleared away and make room for
other Gods and Saviors.

5. High above the clouds, and deep down in all the blackness, the All Light shone as
the everlasting sun. The faith of men and angels rose up in unceasing assurance to
the Most High, that He in matchless majesty, alone, would rise triumphant over all.

6. Jehovih said: Bring forth the legions of earth and heaven! Summon up the dead! Let
the living rejoice! My kingdom is at hand.

7. And the dead came forth, clothed in the raiment of heaven; and they walked upon the
earth; yea, face to face talked with the living, proclaiming the fullness of Jehovih, and his
everlasting kingdoms.

8. Little infants that were long dead, returned to the living, full grown in heaven, singing
in Jehovih’s praise. Mothers returned from the unseen world with love and angel kisses
for their mortal babes and sorrow-stricken husbands.

9. Then rose the cloud of darkness, higher and higher; the poisonous smell and damnable
tricks of hada belched forth in blackness terrible. The spirits of those slain in war,
delirious, mad, and full of vengeance; and those whose earth-lives had bound them in
torments; and those who lived on earth to glut themselves to the full in abhorrent lust,
came assuming the names of Gods and Saviors.

10. And yet the voice of Jehovih called: Bring forth the legions of earth and heaven!
Summon up the dead! Let the living rejoice! My chosen shall come forth.

11. Still struggled the beast, awful in the smoke and dust of his blood-stained mantle, till
the earth around became as a solemn night before a battle of death. Rattling bones and
empty skulls, with gnashing teeth, all stained with human gore, made hideous by the
portentous omen, caused angels and men to stand appalled.

12. And then, as the cloud of darkness stretched up out of the earth, girdling it all around,
as a venomous reptile secureth his living food, lo and behold, the monster beast stretched
forth four heads with flaming nostrils all on fire!

13. On each head were two horns, blood-stained and fresh with human victims’flesh
macerated. Their tongues darted forth in menace, and their open mouths watered for
human souls; and with suspicion mad, and much distrusted, their blood-shot eyes pierced
the temples of kings, and laid them in ruins.

14. And the names of the beast, now falsely assumed, to beguile Jehovih’s chosen, were
Dyaus, Lord God, Osiris and Te-in; and their horns were named, one Righteousness and
the other Militant.

15. With their four bloody mouths, they called out of the fires of hell: Down! Jehovih!
Down! I alone am Savior of mortals and angels! I will be the favorite God, or ruin all!

16. Jehovih answered to His faithful sons and daughters, the living and the dead: Bring
forth the legions of earth and heaven! Summon up the dead! Let the living rejoice! My
kingdom is at hand! My chosen shall be free!

17. The beast, rattling his hideous bones, bated some his breath to see the great
awakening light of the tree of Jehovih!

18. And as the beast looked along, behold his four heads saw one another, and burst forth
in a new tirade of horrid curses.

19. Each to know the others’bold presumption.

20. First spake Anuhasaj, the false Lord God, to the east: Behold thou, Ho-Joss, thou
bloody Te-in, God of hada, thy heavenly kingdom shall down. Know thou that I, the Lord
God, am God of all. It was I, drove the Great Spirit from earth and heaven, and made the
name Lord God worshipful in the broad universe.

21. The false Te-in, mocking, said: And thou wilt bury it in the depths of hell, thou, of
woman born.

22. Upward rose the head of the beast, the false Lord God, and with his mighty arm
and sword, swept off the false Te-in’s head. And as the beast surged about, Dyaus,
the false, sprang forward, shouting, Hold! Thou false Lord God! Never shall thy
name be honored on Chine’ya soil or in her heavens. Behold me! I am Dyaus!

23. Ashtaroth, greedy Goddess, now urged her consort God, Baal, to rush in for the
heavenly spoils. And the twain, in the terrible tumult, drew hence ten thousand million
angel slaves.

24. Anuhasaj said to Dyaus: Thou miscreant God! That dared steal my name, De’yus, and
now confront me with thy hellish taunts! Down! Down!

25. At that their bloody swords clashed, and Dyaus thrust his adversary through, even as
the false Lord God’s sword clipt off Dyaus’traitorous head.

26. Meanwhile Osiris, the dragon-head, started up from the punctured body of the beast,
shouting: Behold me! I am all! I, Osiris, Savior of men; Lord God of heaven and earth,
Dyaus, De’yus, all! By my sword, I am sworn!

27. Ashtaroth, cunning Goddess, flew suddenly down to the earth, to the mortal king of
Egupt, Pharaoh, and through the oracle proclaimed:

28. There is war in heaven! Osiris, thriftiest of Gods, hath won the victory, and standeth
master of all the heavens’broad kingdoms.

29. To earth he shall come no more. Proclaim thyself the Savior’s vice-gerent on earth,
and king of the world!

30. Then Pharaoh, distracted by the flood of miracles and the superabundance of the
spirits of the dead strolling over all of Egupt, embraced the oracle’s fearful decrees.

31. And now, behold, whilst the beast struggled in the four quarters of the world,
Jehovih’s chosen, both on earth and in heaven, marched out of bondage, singing glory to
the Creator’s name!

32. And now, Osiris, the chief remaining head of the beast, turned from the anarchy
and hells in hada, to vent his hatred against Jehovih’s chosen on earth; and with
Baal and Ashtaroth invented new tortures for the non-flesh-eating tribes of men.

33. But Jehovih’s light broke across the world. The smoke and clouds from the battle
cleared away.

34. Osiris fled from the earth. Another group of false Gods had cleared away before
Jehovih’s light.
