CHAPTER 3 Jehovih





04/3.1. Thus spoke Jehovih; by the light of Kosmon He proclaimed these things among the nations of the earth.

04/3.2. Man looked upward in prayer, desiring to know the way of all created things, both on earth and in heaven. And Jehovih answered him, saying:

04/3.3. The whirlwind I made as a sign to man of the way of My created worlds. As you see the power of the whirlwind gathering up the dust of the earth, and driving it together, know that likewise I bring together the ji'ay, a'ji and nebulae in the firmament of heaven; by the power of the whirlwind I create the corporeal suns, moons and stars. And I commanded man to name the whirlwinds in the etherean firmament, and he named them according to their shape, calling them vortices and wark.

04/3.4. By the power of rotation, swift driving at the periphery, I condense the atmospherean worlds that float in the firmament; and these become My corporeal worlds. In the midst of the vortices I made them, and by the power of the vortices I turn them on their axes, and carry them in the orbits I allotted to them. Wider than to the moons of a planet I have created the vortices, and they carry the moons also.

04/3.5. Around some of My corporeal worlds I have given nebulous belts and rings, so that man could comprehend the rotation of My vortexan worlds. |57|

04/3.6. For each and every corporeal world I created a vortex first, and by its rotation and from the places in the firmament where it traveled, I caused the vortex to conceive the corporeal world. |58|

57  The planet Saturn is one such example; see i060d2.

58  In the general case, as a whirling vortex courses space, encountering atmospherean substance, it propels the substance toward the center of the vortex, where the atmospherea condenses to a thicker atmospherea and ultimately to a corporeal substance. This process is described in greater detail later in Oahspe, as are the four stages of vortex development shown in images i063, i064, i065, and i066.

04/3.7. To make the sun I created a great vortex, and within this vortex and subject to it, I made the vortices of many of the corporeal worlds. The sun vortex I caused to rotate, and I gave it power to carry other vortices within it. According to their density and position, they are thus carried forth and around the sun. |59|

04/3.8. Do not think, O man, that I created the sky a barren waste, and void of use. Even as man in the corporeal form is adapted to the corporeal earth, so is he in the spiritual form adapted to My etherean worlds. Three great estates I have bestowed on man: the corporeal, the atmospherean and the etherean. |60|

CHAPTER 4 Jehovih

04/4.1. Man perceived the general formation of the world, and he prayed that his eyes would be opened for a sign in heaven; and Jehovih answered him, saying:

04/4.2. The clouds in the air I bring into view suddenly; by different currents of wind I make the unseen visible and tangible to man's senses. In the same way, I cause etherean currents to bring forth ji'ay, a'ji and nebulae, prior to making corporeal worlds.

04/4.3. In all of the universe I have made the unseen to rule over the seen. Let the formation of clouds stand in view of man on earth, so that he may bear witness to the way the unseen becomes seen.

04/4.4. Man perceived, and he prayed for a sign of duration, and Jehovih answered him, saying:

04/4.5. Note the tree which has sprung up out of the ground and fulfilled its time; it falls and rots, and returns to the earth. But the wind, which you do not see, never ceases to blow. So also |61| is the comparative duration of all things. Do not think, O man, that corporeal things are annihilated because they disappear; for as a drop of water evaporates and rises in the air as unseen vapor, so do all corporeal things, even earth, stones, gold, silver and lead, become as nothing (loss of corporeality) in the firmament of heaven in course of time. |62|


i004 Photospheres. Jehovih said: Let the sign of the corporeal worlds be as the signs of the etherean worlds;* nevertheless they shall be independent of one another. Neither shall the travel of corporea** disturb the motions and positions of etherea, but pass through, as if nothing were there. But the behavior (effect) of the etherean worlds on corporea shall be to bring them to maturity and old age, and final dissolution. || And it was so. And there floated within etherea certain types of densities, called ji'ay, a'ji, and nebula, which sometimes augmented the size of the traveling corporeal worlds, and sometimes illumed them on the borders of the vortices, and these corporeal worlds were called photospheres [suns --ed.], because they were the places of the generation of light. [D is etherea and the etherean worlds in dotted outline; A is a photosphere, i.e., a corporeal sun as it moves through etherea and the etherean worlds; B, the direction of the solar phalanx (photosphere plus planets) through etherea; and C, a corporeal planet (e.g., the earth) being carried in the master vortex of the solar system, that is, a planet being seemingly towed by the sun. --ed.]

* As there are countless billions of corporeal worlds, so are there countless billions of etherean worlds; and as stars, planets and moons have motions, orbits and courses, so do etherean worlds.

** any corpor body whatsoever; the corporeal realm


61  i.e., in the manner indicated

04/4.6. Things that man sees, I created with a beginning and an end; but the unseen I made of endless duration.

04/4.7. I made the corporeal man belonging to the seen; but the spiritual man I made as one within the unseen, and everlasting.

04/4.8. As the corporeal man perceives corporeal things, so does the spiritual man follow upward the evaporated corporeal entities of things. As corporeal things are tangible to corporeans, so are es things |63| tangible to the spirits of the dead.

04/4.9. As I cause water to rise upward as vapor, and take a place in the air above, let it be a sign and testimony of other places (plateaus) in atmospherea where the spirits of the lower heaven dwell. |64|



62  That is, all things evaporate into subtler forms. The universe is constantly in the process of condensing and evaporating substances---from the most rarefied substances condensing downward toward corporeal form, and from corporeal substances evaporating upward toward ethereal form.

i007 Earth, Needles in the Atmosphere, and Plateaus. When Jehovih condensed the earth, and it became firm and crusted over, there rose up from the earth heat and moisture, which continue to this day. But Jehovih limited the ascent of the substances going upward, and the boundary of the limit of moisture was the same as the clouds that float in the air; and the heat was of similar ascent. And while the moisture and heat rise upward, they are met by the etheric substance of the vortex of the earth, and the moisture and the gases of the air assume the form of needles. On the side of the earth facing the sun the needles are polarized and acting, driving forth, which is called light; but on the face of the earth opposite from the sun the needles are in confusion, and this is called darkness. Jehovih said: So that man may comprehend the structure of the belt that holds the earth, I will give him a sign high up in the air. And Jehovih caused the vapor in the firmament to be frozen and fall to the earth, white, and it is called snow. For the snowflake shows the matrix in which it is molded. Jehovih said: Let this be a sign also, that even as heat and moisture rise up from the earth, so are there representatives of all things on the earth which have also evaporated upward, and all such things rise up to the level of density that is like themselves, every one to its own level, and they take their places in the strata of the vortex. These are called plateaus; or spheres, for they surround the whole earth. Some of them are ten miles high, some a thousand, some a hundred thousand or more miles. And all these spheres that rotate and travel with the earth are called atmospherea, or lower heavens.

(see image only)



04/4.10. As I made a limit to the ascent of clouds, so I made a limit to the places of the different kinds of substances in atmospherea; the more subtle and potent to the rim, and the more dense and impotent nearer to the earth.

04/4.11. According to the condition of these different plateaus in atmospherea, whether they are near the earth or high above, |65| so shall the spirit of man take its place in the first heaven; |66| according to his diet, desires and behavior, so shall he dwell in spirit on the plateau to which he has adapted himself during his earth life.










65  for an example of these see image i006

66  Here atmospherea is the first heaven; etherea is the second heaven.



i006 Earth and Plateaus of Lower Heaven. E, Etherea; B, periphery of the earth’s vortex. This line was called by the ancients the Bridge of Chinvat.* All within this area is called Atmospherea. The center circle is the earth; land mass is black; O, the ocean. 1, 2, 3, represent atmospherean plateaus on and near the earth. The O, O, O, with a line through it, represent atmospherean oceans.

(see image only)

* Note that to make the earth, etc., apparent, this Chinvat line is not to scale. That is, were Chinvat drawn in actual proportion to the shown size of the earth, the B line would be drawn some 30 of earth’s diameters distant from the center of the earth.






04/4.12. For I made the power of attraction manifest |67| in all things before man's eyes so that he might not err; so that like would attract like, I made them.

04/4.13. Man sought to know the progress of things. Jehovih answered him, saying:

04/4.14. Open your eyes, O man! There is a time of childhood, a time of propagation, a time of old age, and a time of death to all men. It is likewise with all the corporeal worlds I have created:

04/4.15. First as vapor the vortex carries it forth, and as it condenses, its friction engenders heat, and it is molten, becoming as a globe of fire in heaven. Then it takes its place as a newly born world, and I set it in the orbit prepared for it.

04/4.16. In the next age I bring it into se'mu, |68| for it is ripe for the bringing forth of living creatures; and I bestow the vegetable and animal kingdoms.

i008 Se'muan Firmament. Jehovih said: Behold, I caused all living creatures to gestate in darkness. And this shall be testimony to the end of the world, that, when I created life on the face of the earth, she traveled in My se'muan firmament. This is the triumphant entry of oxygen to the earth's surface. It is also the gestative age for the animal kingdom. Jehovih said: Let there be a sign for man that comes after, so that he shall understand the work of My hand. And Jehovih commanded that after that time, all the living should gestate in darkness. And it was so. || The white sphere in the middle of the dark se'mu is the earth.   (see image only)






04/4.17. Next it enters ho'tu, |69| for it is past the age of begetting, |70| even as the living who are advanced in years. Next it enters a'du, |71| and nothing can generate upon it. Then comes uz, and it is spirited away into unseen realms. Thus I create and dissipate planets, suns, moons and stars.

04/4.18. My examples are before all men. My witnesses are without number. I raise the tree up out of the ground; I give it a time to bring forth fruit, followed by a time of barrenness, then comes death and finally dissolution. I prepare the new field with rich soil, bringing forth; and the old field that is exhausted. And by My examples man shall weigh the progress and destiny of a whole world.

04/4.19. Let no man marvel because of the size of the mammoth and the ichthyosaurus, |72| for there was a time for them as there is a time for the infusoria |73| of this day.

04/4.20. I have given you a sign, O man, in the queen of the honeybee; because of the change of the cell, she comes forth a queen, even from the same kind of germ |74| as the other bees. Be wise, therefore, and remember that the earth is not in the place of the firmament of old. Let this be a testimony to you of the growth, change and travail |75| of the earth.

04/4.21. Nevertheless, O man, the seen and the unseen are only parts of My person; I am the Unity of the whole.

CHAPTER 5 Jehovih





04/5.1. Man perceived the magnitude and glory of the corporeal worlds. He said, How shall I speak of Your great works, O Jehovih, and of Your wisdom and power? Shall I open my mouth before You? I look upon Your countless stars, suns and moons, spread out over the heavens! The millions of years You have rolled them on in the never‑ending firmament! Processions in and out, and round about, |76| of mighty worlds! By Your breath going forth!

04/5.2. O You All Highest! How can I hide my insignificance! I cannot create the smallest thing alive! Nor change the color of a hair on my head. |77| What am I, that You have seen me?

04/5.3. Tell me, O my Creator, where did life come from---this unseen within me that is conscious of being? Tell me how all the living came into life?

04/5.4. Jehovih heard the words of man, and He answered him saying: Let a sign be given to man so that he may comprehend se'mu. || And so Jehovih caused the jellyfish and the green scum of water to be permanently coming forth in all ages, so that man could understand the age of se'mu, when the earth and the shores by the water, and the waters also, were covered over with commingled atmosphere and corporeal substance. This substance was called se'mu, because by His presence, Jehovih quickened it into life; and in that way, He made all the living, both the vegetable and animal worlds. Not that se'mu is jellyfish or the green scum of water; for in this day the earth does not produce se'mu abundantly; nevertheless the jellyfish and the green scum of water are signs of that which was in that day of the earth.

04/5.5. Jehovih said: Because of My presence I quickened into life all that live, or ever have lived.

04/5.6. Because I am male and female, even in My likeness, I made them thus. |78| Because I am the power to quicken into life, so, in likeness of Me, I made them with power to bring forth. |79|

04/5.7. According to their respective places, I created the living; not in pairs only, but in hundreds of pairs and in thousands and millions of pairs.

04/5.8. According to their respective places and the light upon se'mu, so I quickened them in their color, adapted to their dwelling places.

04/5.9. Each and every living thing I created new upon the earth, of a kind each to itself; and not one living thing did I create out of another.

04/5.10. Let a sign be upon the earth, so that man in his darkness may not believe that one animal changes and becomes another.

04/5.11. || And so, Jehovih gave permission for different animals to bring forth a new living animal, which would be unlike either its mother or father, but He caused the new product to be barren. |80| ||

04/5.12. Jehovih said: And this shall be testimony before all men that I created each and all the living, after their own kind only. |81|

04/5.13. Such is My person and My spirit, being from everlasting to everlasting; and when I bring a new world into the time of se'mu, My presence quickens the substance into life; and according to the locality and the surroundings, I bring forth the different species; for they are flesh of My flesh and spirit of My spirit. To themselves I give themselves; nevertheless, they are all members of My Person.

04/5.14. As a testimony to man, behold the earth was once a globe of liquid fire! Nor was there any seed on it. But in due season I rained down se'mu on the earth; and by virtue of My presence I quickened into life all the living. Without seed I created the life that is in them.

77  Man can bring about the conditions conducive to the genesis of life, but he, himself, cannot command life to happen, cannot create life. Likewise, man may dye his hair, but it nevertheless grows out in its natural color. And even if someday man can determine and manipulate the color genes for hair, he can only alter what is already there and living. For, man can only assist in assembling or nurturing the conditions conducive to life coming forth, and in their combining.















78  That is, made males and made females---but like Jehovih, each capable of imparting and receiving in the generic sense: of going forth or giving inspiration, thoughts, energy, etc., while also capable of receiving inspiration or accepting incoming energy, substance, thoughts, etc.

81  Accordingly, because all colors and cultures of man can have children together, it is obvious there is only one kind of Homo sapiens, namely humankind. But the varieties are sometimes called races, being nevertheless only varieties of one and the same kind (species).
