God's Book of Ben









36/6.1. God said: I declare in the name of Jehovih, the Whole. Through Him, and by His hand I have been lifted up. Hear me, O mortals! Give ear, O you spirits of the dead! The Father has spoken; Him I reveal; in Him, bestow the Tree of Light.

36/6.2. I was in darkness, but am now in light. His presence is upon me. Listen, then, to my words, and be wise in your lives.

36/6.3. Do not seek to disprove Him; or to prove that these things cannot be; or seek to deny His person, or His spirit. That was my bondage. In bitterness of heart I was bound in darkness. Those who deny, those who try to disprove Him, are in darkness.

36/6.4. He is the same today and forever. The prophets of old found Him; so can you. But He does not come to the denier, nor to the disprover.

36/6.5. He who would find His Person, must look for Him. He who would hear His Voice, must listen for it. Then comes light.

36/6.6. All argument is void. There is more wisdom in the song of a bird than in the speech of a philosopher. The first speaks to the Almighty, proclaiming His glory. The second plods in darkness.

36/6.7. By my hand, the ancient libraries were burned, to draw man away from darkness.

36/6.8. Kosmon said: What has great learning found that is valuable?

36/6.9. Shall learning, like riches, be acquired for one's own selfish gratification?

36/6.10. If a rich man with his hoarded wealth does little for the resurrection of man, how much less does the learned man do with a head full of knowledge? It neither feeds nor clothes the sick and distressed, nor stays the debauchery and drunkenness of the great multitude.

36/6.11. How shall we class the man of exact science? Where shall we find him? How shall we know that he will not be disproved in time to come?

36/6.12. Yesterday it was said that a man cannot fast forty days and live; today it is proven possible.

36/6.13. Yesterday it was said: There is attraction of gravitation between the sun and the earth; today it is proven that there is no such thing. |1480| And that no man can see without eyes or hear without ears, in su'is (clairvoyance and clairaudience); |1481| today hundreds of thousands know it to be so. |1482|

36/6.14. Yesterday it was said, you shall eat flesh and oil, because they supply certain things for the blood, without which man cannot live; today it is proven otherwise.

36/6.15. Yesterday the physician said: Take this, and it will heal you; today the same thing is proven to have no virtue.

36/6.16. This only is proven: That man is vain and conceited, desiring to make others believe he is wise when he is not.

36/6.17. What healed the sick yesterday, will not tomorrow.

36/6.18. Philosophy that was good yesterday, is folly today.

36/6.19. Religions that were good for the ancients are worthless today.

36/6.20. Crime and pauperism grow up in the heart of them, even worse than in the regions of the earth where they are not preached.

36/6.21. The physicians have not lessened the amount of sickness on the earth.

36/6.22. The lawyers have not lessened the rascality of the wicked, or depleted the number of defrauders.

36/6.23. The march of Jehovih and His peoples is onward; it is like a tree of light, forever growing, but man does not heed the growth.

36/6.24. Man binds his judgment by things that are past; he will not quicken himself to see and understand the All Light.














































1480  explained later in Oahspe


1481  the seeing and hearing of spiritual things

1482  that is, it is a reality








36/7.1. Esfoma said: I am the signs of the times.

36/7.2. By my face the prophets foretell what is to be.

36/7.3. I am the living mathematics; the unseen progress of things speaking to the senses of man.

36/7.4. My name is: The Signs of The Times.

36/7.5. Why have you inhabitants of the earth, and you angels of the heavens, not regarded me in my march?

36/7.6. I called out in the days of the pyramids: O kings and mighty ones! Behold the signs of the times!

36/7.7. And you men of great learning, listen; a voice speaks in the wind!

36/7.8. Behold, Osiris and Isis shall go down. Anubi shall not judge the people of the Almighty!

36/7.9. I sent a storm into colleges of learning; the wise professors held up their heads and said:

36/7.10. I doubt the person of Osiris! I doubt Isis! Are they merely a principle?

36/7.11. The prophets looked here and there. They said: Behold the signs of the times! Let us measure the increase in the growth of skepticism toward these ancient Gods.

36/7.12. They said: Osiris shall go down; and so shall Isis, Anubi, Baal, Ashtaroth and Thammus.

36/7.13. But kings did not hear; they called their councils for stern legislation.

36/7.14. They saw, but denied my person and the power of my hand.

36/7.15. Man calls out: Give me a key for prophecy. Show me the way to find the destiny of Gods, angels, and mortals.

36/7.16. Show me the key for the rise and fall of nations and empires.

36/7.17. Then I come forth over all the land. Man begins to doubt, then to disbelieve, and then to deny the popular Gods and Saviors of his forefathers.

36/7.18. They (supporters of the idols) will not see which way the wind blows; with strong arms and bloody hands they rise up against Jehovih.

36/7.19. Then they go down in destruction; they and their Gods are known no more.

36/7.20. Jehovih has said: All things are like a tree; which springs up from a little seed to become mighty; it bears fruit for a season, and then falls and is turned to dust.

36/7.21. One by one My Gods, and My false Gods, rise up and are powerful for a season, and then they are swept away in Esfoma's hands.

36/7.22. Behold My thousands of Saviors, which I have sent to raise up the inhabitants of the earth. Where are they this day?

36/7.23. To mortals I give Gods, Lords and Saviors; according to the time and place of the earth in My etherean regions, so I bestow them.

36/7.24. But when they have fulfilled their time, lo, I take away their Gods, Lords and Saviors. Not suddenly, nor without signs of the times of their going.






The Battle with the Beast of the Arc of Bon





36/8.1. 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.

36/8.2. Nations that had not known Him, now knew Him. Accepting, and with loud rejoicings, they shouted: Jehovih! Jehovih! Almighty and Everlasting! Glory to You on High! Creator, Father! All praise to You forever.

36/8.3. And Jehovih went far and near swiftly, quickening with a new power both the living and the dead. |1483| And the peoples rose up, and heard His voice from every corner, calling: Come forth! Come forth! O My beloved.

36/8.4. And in the stirring up of things long past, it was as if a cloud of dust and darkness, foul and poisonous, overspreading heaven and earth, was to be cleared away and room made for other Gods and Saviors.

36/8.5. High above the clouds, and deep down in the all 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.

36/8.6. Jehovih said: Bring forth the legions of earth and heaven! Summon up the dead! Let the living rejoice! My kingdom is at hand. ||

36/8.7. And the dead came forth, clothed in the raiment of heaven; and they walked upon the earth; yes, talked face to face with the living, proclaiming the fullness of Jehovih, and His everlasting kingdoms.

36/8.8. Little infants who 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.

36/8.9. Then the cloud of darkness rose, 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.

36/8.10. 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. ||

36/8.11. Still, the beast struggled, awful in the smoke and dust of his bloodstained mantle, till the entire earth became like 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.

36/8.12. And then, as the cloud of darkness stretched up out of the earth, girdling it around like a venomous reptile secures his living food, lo and behold, the monster beast stretched forth four heads with flaming nostrils all on fire!

36/8.13. On each head were two horns, bloodstained and fresh with the macerated flesh of human victims. Their tongues darted forth in menace, and their open mouths watered for human souls; and mad with suspicion and much distrust, their bloodshot eyes pierced the temples of kings, and laid them in ruins.

36/8.14. And the names of the beast, now falsely assumed, to beguile |1484| Jehovih's chosen, were Dyaus, Lord God, Osiris, and Te‑in; and their horns were named, one Righteousness and the other Militant.

36/8.15. 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!

36/8.16. 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!

36/8.17. The beast, rattling his hideous bones, held somewhat his breath, to see the great awakening light of the tree of Jehovih!

36/8.18. And as the beast looked on, behold, his four heads saw one another, and burst forth in a new tirade of horrid curses.

36/8.19. Each to know the others' bold presumption.

36/8.20. Anuhasaj, the false Lord God, to the east, spoke first: Behold me! I am Ho‑Joss! You, bloody Te‑in, God of hada, your heavenly kingdom shall go down. Know that I, the Lord God, am God of all. It was I who drove the Great Spirit from earth and heaven, and made the name Lord God worshipful in the broad universe.

36/8.21. The false Te‑in, mocking, said: And you will bury it in the depths of hell, you, of woman born.

36/8.22. 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: Stop! You false Lord God! Never shall your name be honored on Jaffeth'yan soil or in her heavens. Behold me! I am Dyaus!

36/8.23. Ashtaroth, greedy Goddess, now urged her consort God, Baal, to rush in for the heavenly spoils. And the two of them, in the terrible tumult, drew away ten billion angel slaves.

36/8.24. Anuhasaj said to Dyaus: You miscreant God who dared steal my name, De'yus! And now confront me with your hellish taunts! Down! Down!

36/8.25. At that, their bloody swords clashed, and Dyaus thrust his adversary through, even as the false Lord God's sword clipped off Dyaus' traitorous head.

36/8.26. Meanwhile Osiris, the dragon‑head, surged 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!

36/8.27. Ashtaroth, cunning Goddess, flew immediately down to the earth, to the mortal king of Egupt, Pharaoh, and through the oracle proclaimed:

36/8.28. There is war in heaven! Osiris, thriftiest of Gods, has won the victory, and stands master of all the heavens' broad kingdoms.

36/8.29. To earth he shall come no more. Proclaim yourself the Savior's vice‑gerent on earth, and king of the world!

36/8.30. 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.

36/8.31. And now, behold, while 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!

36/8.32. 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.

36/8.33. But Jehovih's light broke across the world. The smoke and clouds from the battle cleared away.

36/8.34. Osiris fled from the earth. Another group of false Gods had cleared away before Jehovih's light.















1483  i.e., mortals and angels


























































1484  deceive, mislead, distract, captivate








36/9.1. Jehovih said: When the Gods have fulfilled their time in earth and heaven, behold, I put them away.

36/9.2. And at the time of their going, behold, I open the doors of heaven, and I call down the angels and send them abroad over the earth. And the earth becomes overrun with miracles. ||

36/9.3. Kosmon said: Let the wise man and the prophet consider the signs of the Almighty! Two extremes forerun the change of the Gods and Saviors in heaven: These are, extreme disbelief and extreme belief. The first denies all Gods, and even the person of the Creator; the second runs after the spirits of the dead, consulting seers and oracles.

36/9.4. Esfoma said: These signs are my signs. When these come, behold, the Almighty has a new deliverance on hand.

36/9.5. None can stop Him, nor hold up the Gods, Lords and Saviors of the past against Jehovih.

36/9.6. I speak in the wind, and man says: Behold, something is in the wind; || the Gods are at work; a new light breaks in upon the understanding of men.

36/9.7. Out of the tumult, Jehovih rises supreme in every cycle.

36/9.8. He leads forth a few who know Him and establishes them as a separate people in the world.

36/9.9. Uz said: And at the time of Jehovih's triumph, I come and make myths out of the deposed Gods and Saviors.

36/9.10. Then I stretch forth my hand against the libraries and houses of ancient records, and I destroy them.

36/9.11. And man is compelled to give up the things of old, and to look around him, and rouse himself up to the ways of the Almighty.

36/9.12. O if only the prophets would apply my lessons of the past, in order to foretell the future.

36/9.13. Behold, there is no mystery in heaven and earth. They march right on; cycle follows cycle, summer follows winter.

36/9.14. In the overthrow of the departing Gods, behold, there is the beginning of a new springtime in Jehovih's seasons.

36/9.15. He plants a new tree in His garden; it is a tree of new light for the righteous.

36/9.16. His chosen go out, away from the fleshpots |1485| of the past, and they have neither kings nor emperors; only the Almighty!

36/9.17. Into the wilderness they go forth, persecuted and beset on all sides by the followers of the mythical Gods.
















































1485  institutions, establishments and people that cater to self-indulgent lifestyles, sensual pleasures, and other pandering toward the animal man (self). In other words, the chosen leave behind the hedonistic and self-serving culture of the world's people.








36/10.1. God said: Here is wisdom, O man: To be observant of all things and adapt yourself to them on Jehovih's side.

36/10.2. To obtain great learning that applies to the resurrection of your soul in comprehending the works of the Almighty.

36/10.3. To not let yourself be conceited in the wisdom of the moderns over the ancients, nor of the ancients over the moderns.

36/10.4. The Creator created man wisely for the time of the world in which man was created.

36/10.5. You are for this era, and not for the past.

36/10.6. The ancients were for the past era, and not for the present.

36/10.7. To know the present, to be up with the signs of the times---this is to see Jehovih's hand.

36/10.8. Do not make a God of riches, nor of your supposed sciences and learning.

36/10.9. For in the time you see men doing these things, behold, that is the time of a cyclic coil in the great beast. |1486|























1486  see image i074





i074 The Cyclic Coil. Showing the currents of the vortex, Tow'sang. The numbers of the beast shall be sixty-six, and six hundred and sixty-six, and the [corresponding --ed.] parts of those.* Because in the coil of the cycle, observe that the distances are two-thirds of a circle, whether it [the distance of a circle as measured in years --ed.] is a hundred or a thousand, or three times a thousand. Jehovih rolls up the heavens, and braids the serpents of the firmament into His cyclic coil. Who can magnify Jehovih by calling Him Osiris, or Te-in, or Baal, or Lord, or God? He is the circle without beginning or end; His Majesty encompasses the universe.

(see image only)

[*This must refer at least to any number that is two-thirds of a cycle, regardless of the cycle's length. In the example given, for a cycle of three thousand years, the beast influence will fall heavily at 2000 years, which is 2/3s of 3000. --ed.]




36/10.10. Your God and your Savior will surely be swept away.

36/10.11. Make Jehovih, the Creator, the idol of your soul; neither setting up this nor that as impossible.

36/10.12. Opening up your understanding to find the tree of light and righteousness of soul.

36/10.13. Admitting that all things are possible in Jehovih's hands.

36/10.14. Then your God will surely not be swept away.

36/10.15. Look about you, O man, and from the Sons and Daughters of Jehovih, |1487| learn the march of the Almighty's kingdoms.

36/10.16. Who can make a system or a philosophy like Jehovih? What have you found that is infallible?

36/10.17. The truth of yesterday is not a truth today; the truth of yesterday is the truth today.

36/10.18. You shall come to understand even this.

36/10.19. To learn how to live; to rejoice, and to do good, and make your neighbor rejoice also, this is wisdom.

36/10.20. Let these be your loves and the glory of your speech, and you shall learn to prophesy concerning the ways of Jehovih.
