First Book of God




CHAPTER 15 First Book God





24/15.1. When morning came, Brahma and Yu‑tiv rose early, and came together and spoke in joyous greeting, and they were moved to shake hands, though such a proceeding was not according to the custom of the country, except between relatives. And it came to pass that they were together during much of the day, and in the evening they walked together, but did not touch each other.

24/15.2. Now on the second day, when they walked together, they held hands. And on the third day they joined arms. And on the fourth day they kissed each other. And after that they were only separated at night when they slept. But it came to pass that they were so delighted with each other that they sat up nearly all night, so as not to be separated.

24/15.3. And all the while they did not neglect their devotion to Ormazd; but finally they sat up all night, not sleeping, except in each other's arms.

24/15.4. Yu‑tiv said: Since we sit up all night, it is wiser to sit on mats than on stools. Brahma said: It is wiser. So they provided mats, half raised and half spread down, for a season, and finally laid the mats full length, and they lay down together. More than that, history does not say.

24/15.5. But Brahma followed his trade in that country, and it came to pass they had a son born to them, and his name was Whe‑ish; and in time another son, and his name was Vus, and then Vede, and Git‑un, and Oos, and Sa‑it.

24/15.6. Now after they lived together as man and wife, the voice of Ormazd no longer came to Brahma, though the angel of Ormazd remained, and at times talked to both Brahma and Yu‑tiv. And during all the time, until after the birth of the sixth son, Yu‑tiv had faith in Ormazd, and was a Faithist in her whole heart. But during all these years she had communion only with the angels, and had also suffered many hardships in common with Brahma.

24/15.7. And their love did not abate |797| a fraction, and Yu‑tiv believed in her husband, and encouraged his aspirations. He had told her ten thousand times: I know Ormazd will come; through me He will deliver the Faithists out of bondage. |798|

24/15.8. And she believed in him; and believed these things would come to pass, and believed her sons would have the Voice of the Creator with them also. But after the birth of the sixth child, Yu‑tiv lost faith in the Father! She said: All my life I have been in error. There is no All Person. There is no Voice, except the spirits of the dead. And they know little more of heaven than we. The Creator is dumb, like the wind; His voice is like the wind, it speaks nothing.

24/15.9. And after that, she ceased to use the name Ormazd, or Father, but said, Eolin, like the ancients. And Brahma ceased to speak anymore in the presence of Yu‑tiv regarding the coming of Ormazd to himself; and he also adopted the name Eolin, signifying, like the wind, void of shape or person.

24/15.10. While this state of unbelief was upon them, they had another child born to them, and they called his name Hog, signifying Fact, or without inspiration; an animal that roots in the ground.

24/15.11. Yu‑tiv weaned Hog when he was three years old, and, the next day the voice of God came to Brahma, saying: Brahma! Brahma! And Brahma said: Here I am, O Eolin. And the Father said: Be faithful another eighteen years! I shall be with you to the end!

24/15.12. Brahma was so delighted, he ran home and told Yu‑tiv. But she did not rejoice, did not answer; silently she looked upward for a long while, and then she said: Eighteen years! Hog will be twenty‑one. And you and I will be old.





CHAPTER 16 First Book God





24/16.1. So God did not speak to Brahma for eighteen years, but Brahma remained faithful, and Yu-tiv was full of hope. But when the time was fulfilled in Ormazd's own way, He came with renewed light, which was on Hog's twenty‑first birthday.

24/16.2. While Brahma and his family were seated on mats, eating breakfast at sunrise, lo, a light, like that of a sun, came within the hut, passed over Brahma's head, and then disappeared. And out of the void, in the space above their heads, came these words: From this time forward, the twenty‑first birthday shall be the time of maturity for man. Be watchful for the voice of Ormazd; He is Ever Present!

24/16.3. And all of them saw the light and heard the words, except Hog, for he, having been begotten in unbelief, could neither see the light nor hear the voice. And when they all had exclaimed: Behold the light! Hear that voice! || Hog spoke before them:

24/16.4. For many years you have prophesied this would come to pass when I reached my twenty‑first birthday. Because of the love you all bear me, I know you would not pull a joke on me; but I am seriously grieved that you say: Behold the light, and hear the voice! For I say to you, these things are not in reason, and cannot be so. But in much hope, faith and belief, all of which you have cultivated for years, you allow your imaginings to stand for realities.

24/16.5. Now while Hog was thus speaking, the light came again and stood over Brahma's head while one might count to twenty; and the Voice said: Blessed are you, O Brahma; blessed you, O Yu-tiv! These things had to be fulfilled. I do not preach by reason alone, but provide living examples! (In his old age Brahma had attained iesu!)

24/16.6. Again all of them saw and heard the manifestation of Ormazd, except Hog, for he could neither see nor hear what came of the Spirit. Hog said: Do I not have eyes as good as the best? Show me a hair that I cannot see; let a mite fall that I cannot hear. Then Whe‑ish, the first‑born, answered him, saying:

24/16.7. First, my brother, I greet you with my love, for you are the fairest and best of all the great sons born of this God and Goddess, our father and mother. And I appeal to you in your great wisdom, how could we all have imagined the same light at the same time and in the same place? And greater yet, how could we have imagined the same spoken words? Hog replied:

24/16.8. How can my answers cope with one who has wisdom like you, O my brother? You have confounded me; but still I do not understand how you, and you, my most loving brothers, can see and hear things that I cannot. Do we not all have the same parts, so like one another that our neighbors can scarcely distinguish us from each other? And above all else, we are all fruit from the same father and mother, the holiest and wisest of created beings.

24/16.9. Now Yu‑tiv spoke, saying: I am in Your judgment, O Ormazd! That which I have done, I have done! Deal with me for my great unbelief; I have sinned against heaven and earth. Even while You quickened into life within my womb this star of everlasting light, lo, I put out his eyes and stopped up his ears against You. The unbelief of my soul penetrated the walls of my womb and shaped the fruit of my holy husband into a man of darkness. O Ormazd, why was Your daughter born!

24/16.10. And Yu-tiv fell into tears. Hog said: O Goddess, mother! Do not weep, but rejoice for the glory of my birth. Because you and my holy father, a very God among men, brought me into life, my soul is boundless in rejoicing. I declare to you, O mother, I am not in darkness, nor am I blind and deaf. If there is another world, what does it matter to me? The glories of this one are boundless. And if there is a Great Light and a Voice, what are they to me! You have so filled my every vein of blood with your warm love, and with the sweet love of these, my holy brothers, and with the wisdom of my father, God among men, that I know nothing but to rejoice and to invent praises and thanks to you all, with all my wisdom and strength.

24/16.11. And now the Light gathered within the soul of Brahma, and he was as one with the Father. Then Ormazd, the Creator, spoke through Brahma, saying:

24/16.12. I created the earth not to be despised, as the Zarathustrians do through the hearts of monarchs and priests, but so that it should be the glory of man. This was the Zarathustrian law, but, for the sake of profit, bondage and evil, they have perverted My doctrines and bound up My peoples. They profess Me, even Ormazd; but they have turned My commandments and My doctrines upside down.

24/16.13. I came through Zarathustra and delivered those who called on Me in faith; and they became My chosen for a season; but they allowed evil to usurp |799| their hearts; they squandered My substance in building temples and providing a superabundance of priests and priestesses. They raised up the sword and spear for Me; yes, by blood and death they established kingdoms and called them by My name, Ormazd!

24/16.14. The spirit of My Voice they put aside; but the words they retained, and added earthly meaning to them, by which they proclaim darkness for light, and light for darkness. And the poor and distressed who worship Me in truth and in spirit have learned to hate the established words. For which reason they are persecuted, bound, taxed, and despitefully used.

24/16.15. Yes, they impress into service of war, those who would not kill because of their natural love for Me and for My created sons and daughters. Thus they take these from their kindred, saying to them: Come away from peace and kill! Be a slayer of men; be a soldier of death for the glory of the king.

24/16.16. I commanded them, since ancient times, to kill not at all. My words were plain. But the kings commanded the priests to interpret My words in such a way that war could be justified.

24/16.17. I commanded them against taking that which was another's. My words were plain. But the kings commanded the priests to interpret the meaning in such ways that the kings could exact tribute for their own glory. And so they levy |800| wherever and whenever they desire, saying: For the defense of the king and the country!

24/16.18. Thus they have perverted My commandments from beginning to end. But I declare to you, that in My sight, I will hold him accountable who kills one man; and ten times accountable if he kills ten men, and a hundred times for a hundred. They shall not hide death and murder from My sight by the word war.

24/16.19. Neither shall they excuse stealing by levying tax for the king or for the country's protection. For by their own evil, it has come to pass that they talk about protection. Have I made a law that one king or one country shall protect itself against another? Does any man not see that these doctrines come from the flesh and not from the spirit? (For as My kingdoms in heaven need no protection from one another; why should those on earth, who profess Me, require protection from one another, unless they are heeding the flesh and not Me?)

24/16.20. They profess to be Faithists in Me. But they immediately go and build fortifications of earth, stone and wood. And as for those who know Me in spirit and truth, perceiving I am wrongly interpreted for evil's sake, being those who rebel in their souls against these iniquities---these they seize and impress as lifelong slaves, or, if refusing, they kill them.

24/16.21. And those who work such wickedness say: Behold, we have the Zarathustrian law, the I'hua'Mazdian law, the Ormazdian law; ours is the holy, the revealed word. Let no man raise up his voice against these truths, or he shall surely be put to death!

24/16.22. But I looked down from My holy heavens and saw, and My ears heard; and I cried out in My soul for the evils of the earth. I said: Behold, I will go and deliver those who have faith in Me in spirit and truth. And I went over the lands of the earth, but I found no man in whom My light could shine. So I called My holy masters of generations, My angels high raised in heaven, and I said to them: Come and dwell on the earth many generations, and by inspiration raise Me up one in whom My light shall shine, for I will surely deliver My people.

24/16.23. Now I declare to you who are assembled, the time is at hand, and you are all so many parts in My work. Even as through My angels you named these sons; so also according to their names, I will establish My kingdom.

24/16.24. Therefore, permit Vede to write down the words I have spoken, for lo, he has learning and memory provided to that end. Be watchful for when I come again!

24/16.25. Jehovih (Ormazd) ceased, and Brahma woke as from a trance, though he had heard all that was said. So Vede remembered every spoken word, and he wrote them down on cloth prepared for that purpose. And this was the beginning of a new name of a people on the earth, for though they were in fact Faithists, and nothing but Faithists, yet their neighbors sometimes called them Vedans and sometimes Brahmans.

CHAPTER 17 First Book God





24/17.1. The next morning, at sunrise, Jehovih came again, speaking through Brahma, saying:

24/17.2. As I prepared a way for My voice, be wise in laboring to show this light to all peoples. Yet do not take sorrow to your souls for the latest born, Hog (who cannot see this light); for he is also in My keeping, and his wisdom shall be the glory of the earth.

24/17.3. For is not all fact interpreted by each and every man from the light of his own standing place? In which, error comes into the world by the darkness of men, in not perceiving rightly the things I have created. Behold, one man sees the forest with reference to its value in logs; another for splints for mats; another for shade to lie in; another for its solitude; and they all see by what dwells in them, but they see through their own particular windows. |801|

24/17.4. Consider, then, the injustice of the man who says: You shall see as I see; hear as I hear; or who says: I have proven this to be true, and that to be untrue; or who says: Behold, we are many witnesses, and we attest.

24/17.5. While Jehovih was speaking so, His angel appeared and stood in the doorway of the hut, and all except Hog looked and saw the angel, and witnessed the color of the angel's hair and eyes, and the clothes he wore. And they pointed, saying in a whisper: Behold, an angel of heaven!

24/17.6. Then Jehovih spoke, illustrating, saying: While no one has yet spoken, let one at a time privately describe to Hog the appearance of My angel in the doorway.

24/17.7. Accordingly, they all, except Brahma, told Hog all that pertained to the angel, and their accounts accorded with one another. And Jehovih said: Speak, My Son, Hog. Hog said:

24/17.8. To whom shall I speak? For, whether You are my very father; or, in truth, the Creator, I do not know. God said: Who do you say the Creator is? Hog said: Even as the wind; the great void; without person, shape, or sense.

24/17.9. God said to him: For which reason I say to you, because of the unbelief of your father and your mother, while you were in your mother's womb, you are as you are. This they have attested to you thousands of times since you were weaned. And they have also attested to you as often, that during the bringing forth of your brothers, they were in the fullness of faith in Jehovih (Ormazd).

24/17.10. You were born of the earth, and can only see with earthly eyes, hear only with earthly ears, and can reason only with earthly reason. Hog said: Then in truth I shall go down to earth and there shall be no more of me; but these, my sweet brothers, and this Goddess and this God, my very father and mother, shall inherit everlasting life?

24/17.11. God said: I would place two eggs before you, with the birds within them nearly hatched; now with one you shall open the shell a little, and the young bird sees out, but the other you leave closed. Would you say one bird will have much advantage over the other when they are hatched? Or, that one shall not live, because, in fact, it did not see through the shell? Such, then, is your way to everlasting life. Of your darkness I will make light that will reach millions. Your sacrifice is the sacrifice of a very God among Gods.

24/17.12. Hog said: Because of your great wisdom, I fear to speak in your presence. But your words come out of the mouth of him who is the sweetest and holiest of created beings. Therefore I take courage in my argument.

24/17.13. Now, behold, they have all described the angel in the door; and their descriptions are alike in all particulars. And the wisdom of your words goes to the bottom of things, not like the words of man, but faultlessly. You have made me see that I am bound as if with iron hoops, and must go my way all my days. I do not complain against this; for I perceive it is not within my judgment to know even myself, as to what is good for me or not good for me. However, you have shown me this: I was molded as I am; I am as I am. If I have faults, they are not my faults. Neither are they my father's nor my mother's; for the cause of their unbelief at that time did not lie with themselves, but with you.

24/17.14. God said: Vede shall also write down your words; the glory and the wisdom of the earth shall come out of your mouth. The manner of my edifice |802| shall be shown to the inhabitants of the earth. You have seen the king's temple and how he builds it. For the fine posts he sends his best hewers into the forest, and they choose the straightest and strongest trees, and fall them and hew them, |803| and polish and engrave them, and the posts are set up in the front as strength and ornament. But for the walls of the temple, the king does not call for the best hewers, but the choppers, and they also go into the forest to fetch logs, not the straightest and handsomest, but whatever their axes come upon. And their timbers are put in the walls with mortar and withes. |804| And the temple is completed to the king's will.

24/17.15. Jehovih said: My heavenly edifice is like this also; I do not send winter to please one man, nor summer; nor the rain. I consider in what way I shall induce men to raise up one another and to be considerate. Thus through Me: Your father, mother, brothers, and all Faithists that come after these, My doctrines, shall learn to consider the unbelief of mortals, and the impossibility of one man seeing through another man's eyes.

24/17.16. For as I have raised you up in a house of love for one another, so will I show the wisdom of disbelief, and its necessity on the earth.

24/17.17. The foremost of all lessons is that all men shall have liberty; and no man's judgment shall be binding on another's; for all do not see alike, nor can they understand alike.

24/17.18. So you shall be as considerate to those who do not see My light, or My Person, as you are to those who are born in su'is; for they are of the same flesh and blood, and they have their spirits from the same Creator.

24/17.19. For in the evidence of the past and present it is before you, that men endeavor to enforce their doctrines by saying: Behold the Word of Ormazd! He has spoken thus! And I am His priest! Bow down your heads! |805|

24/17.20. Instead, man shall not bow down, but hold up his head and rejoice. Those who seek to enforce Me are My enemies.

24/17.21. Nor have I said of this man or that: Hear him, for he is Truth. || Shall the Creator make one greater than Himself, and thus cut Himself off? And yet the kings and priests of this day assume to be Truth in Ihua's (God's) name. And the mothers and fathers of many have become discouraged because of their great hardships; and they bring forth heirs who have eyes but do not see, ears but do not hear.

24/17.22. God said: In the days of Zarathustra, I came to deliver those who had faith but were in bondage; today I come to teach men how to bring forth heirs with eyes to see spiritual things, and with ears to hear them, and with liberty to all men.

24/17.23. And I come to prove three worlds to men. First, the earth and its fullness; second, the intermediate world of spirits, where all shall sojourn for a season; and third, the Nirvanian worlds beyond Chinvat, where, for the pure and wise, unending paradise awaits.

CHAPTER 18 First Book God





24/18.1. In the next morning, at sunrise, God spoke again to Brahma, saying:

24/18.2. Consider the fruit of the earth, and the pasturage in the fields. The male and the female feed on the same grass; yet one yields milk, and the other is for the yoke; neither can any man change these creations.

24/18.3. What man shall say to another: Feed on this, or on that? || But they take those who are born in darkness, and raise up priests! The food for the flesh, or even fasting, cannot bring su'is. The air warms the earth, and not the earth the air. The spirit enlightens the corporeal part, and not the corporeal part the spirit.

24/18.4. Light is the freedom of all; to know this is the beginning of wisdom. Nevertheless, without suffering, some who are bound would not know they are bound, or, if knowing, would not desire freedom.

24/18.5. || At this time, Hog, the youngest born, was greatly moved, |806| and so God bade him speak.

24/18.6. Hog said: O if only I could believe these things! O if only I could see! O if only I could hear! O the misery of my darkness! O the horrors of the suspense of not knowing a matter! Bitter is my soul, and full of anguish! O the madness of this hour upon me!

24/18.7. How, O Wisdom, did You forget the time of my begetting, to let me spring up as an offensive weed in such a garden of paradise! ||

24/18.8. And he bowed his head and wept; and then Yu‑tiv, his mother, who had brought him forth, spoke, saying: I perceive Your light, O Father, but I cannot bear it. You unlocked my members to bring forth these seven Gods! Never has woman on the whole earth brought forth so rich a harvest; but yet my soul is tortured to its very center! O if only the light of my soul could be transferred to this God among men! And she also wept.

24/18.9. Now spoke Sa‑it, saying: I am nearest born to you, O my sweet brother, Hog,. No love lies as fondly to you as mine. And as to you, Yu‑tiv, my Goddess mother, you have most wisely named me Abundant. For in our love, Ormazd has provided us equal to the highest of Gods. Because I have witnessed that this purest and best of brothers cannot see spiritually, my soul is mellowed toward all the world. Yes, my outstretched arms shall receive the darkest of men, and my soul shall go up in praise of Ormazd forever!

24/18.10. Oos spoke next; he said: Most wisely I am named Space; for it has pleased Ormazd to show me the breadth of His Creations. What belief or unbelief is there that He has not provided a glory for it! Because my sweet brother, Hog, has been thus blessed with darkness, he shall be guardian to me in earthly wisdom all my days. In my faith I know it is well with him; yet in my love I wish he could see as we all see!

24/18.11. Then spoke Git‑un, whose name signified Time. He said: Behold, I am the fourth born, and, as it were, in the middle. Whose love is so delightfully hedged around as mine is! Who is so surrounded by the Light of heaven and earth! At one end behold my father, God among men; the very voice of heaven and earth; interpreter of the Creator's words! At the other end, the best, sweetest brother ever created on the earth, with all the wisdom of men and angels. O the glory of this hour! O the delight to be with these Gods, and with Yu‑tiv, Goddess among women!

24/18.12. Then Vus, the second born, spoke. He said: How shall I glorify You, O Ormazd, and not glorify myself! I am full to overflowing with delight for the love of these, my brothers and father, very Gods! But for Yu‑tiv I have more than love. I perceive through my own sweet mother how the different castes of men are made! O mother, how very near the Creator dwells such a righteous woman!

24/18.13. Whe‑ish said: To keep one's thoughts and desires ever high; would this not deliver the world? Vede said: To know the truth and ever speak it in love and kindness, would this not deliver the world and establish Ormazd?

24/18.14. Brahma now woke from his trance, and he spoke, saying: To find the Father; to know Him; to reveal Him; these are all, and for His glory only.

24/18.15. Now God spoke again, saying: Wiser than all the rest is Brahma. Who of you all has not spoken of himself or herself? Who has uttered a word of praise or of thanks, and left out self? Judge, then, what is required of men so that my spirit may find utterance through their lips.

24/18.16. Then the Voice departed for that day; and the angel of God appeared in the door, so all except Hog could see him. The angel said: Come at midnight and sit in the sacred circle in the grove of Ebon so that you may see the spirits of the intermediate world. We will appear in sar'gis.

24/18.17. Hog did not hear the angel, but the others told him what the angel said. Accordingly, at midnight they sat in circle in the grove of Ebon.





















806  stirred, agitated, perturbed



CHAPTER 19 First Book God





24/19.1. And the angel of God appeared in the middle of the circle, in sar'gis, and talked with them face to face. And Hog said to the angel: In truth, I know you are not mortal, and yet you have the semblance of flesh, limbs, arms and an actual body having clothes that look just like mortal clothes.

24/19.2. Now I tell you face to face, I believe you are no angel of the dead, but actually a reflected self‑substance, produced out of the substance of my father. Can you prove otherwise? The angel answered, saying:

24/19.3. Mortal words cannot convince you; nor can the words of a spirit. Behold, I will show you a friend of yours who is dead. With that, the angel showed the spirit of Hog's friend who was dead, and the man's name was Aara‑acta; and so Hog said to him:

24/19.4. You are an actual counterpart of him I knew. What is your name? The spirit answered: Aara‑acta! I tell you, O Hog, these things are true. I am the spirit of your friend; yes, I am that very friend. Hog said: Where do you dwell? Where have you been? Are you happy? Have you visited all the heavens?

24/19.5. The spirit answered him, saying: I live around here on the earth even as before death. I am happy; the glory of my present world surpasses the earth. I have not visited the highest heavens. I am as yet only in the first resurrection. Up above us there are heavens where all the people are Gods and Goddesses. I cannot go there; they are too white. |807| || The spirit then disappeared, and Hog said:

24/19.6. I saw what I saw and heard what I heard. Yet I do not believe that I have seen a spirit nor heard one. A spirit must by reason be thin, subtle, and air‑like.

24/19.7. Then the angel of God spoke, saying: How shall I please this man, O Ormazd? This morning I showed myself in the door of the hut, thin and subtle and air‑like, and he did not see or hear me. Who can find a way to open this man's soul to Your Wisdom, O Ormazd?

24/19.8. Now Yu‑tiv spoke, saying: Great is the glory of Your angel, O Ormazd! Heavenly are the spirits of the dead. Welcome, O you angels of heaven! Then Whe‑ish spoke, saying: Even the lowest of heavens has great glory! O what delight it would be to dwell in such a paradise! Next Vus spoke, saying: Such wisdom and truth! What are Your kingdoms, O Father, when even the first heaven has such glory. Vede said: Truth is Your mightiest work, O Ormazd! Git‑un said: Because I have lived to see these things, I will proclaim Your wonders, O Ormazd, for as long as I live! Oos said: You have framed Your worlds so wisely, O Ormazd, that even Your lowest of angels are the delight of my soul! Next spoke Sa‑it, he said: Give us of Your abundance, O Ormazd. Open wide the gates of the lower heavens. I will take Your angels into my arms and rejoice forever!

24/19.9. Brahma then came out of his trance, though he had heard and seen all. He said: Whoever comes that can make me better, and show me how most to benefit Your world, him, O Ormazd, send to me. || And lo, Brahma was answered first of all! A light, bright as a sun, stood in the middle of the circle, and it was higher than the clouds, and displayed a staff on which was a banner of gold and silver; and on the banner, stars clustered to spell the words, Love, Wisdom and Power!

24/19.10. Presently the scene changed, and the angel of God said: He who spoke last (Brahma) has been answered first, because his words reached to the Fountainhead. Wherever you send your prayers, you are answered from there. |808| With that in mind, I will now open the gates of the lower heavens, and you shall witness what you may.

24/19.11. The angel withdrew all surrounding lights, so that great darkness came upon the circle. Presently, Yu‑tiv started, |809| as if somewhat frightened. Then Vus sprang up, saying: What was that? And then another started, till presently all except Brahma and Hog were wild and startled, whispering: What do my eyes behold! O that foul smell! O that vulgar touch! And then one screamed; and another, and another, until all broke and fled, screaming and crying out in fear and distress; flying into the darkness of the grove, frantic; almost dead with fear!

24/19.12. Hog did not run; saw nothing to fear; heard nothing to dread; felt nothing to make him ashamed.

24/19.13. And his father, Brahma, did not run, was not afraid, and the two called to the rest, pleaded, coaxed and called in vain; could not stop them; could not find them in the darkness. They returned to the hut, Brahma and Hog; saw the torches burning brightly, and came in and found Yu‑tiv and her sons huddled together in each other's arms, white and pale as death.

24/19.14. Hog asked the reason. Yu‑tiv said: Shh! |810| Are they gone? Shh! Keep them away! Then Vus spoke, saying: O my brother, do not ask what we saw! Do not ask what we felt, and what felt us! These things would not be lawful to mention! Say no more, in heaven's name! The air of heaven is full of demons (druj).

24/19.15. Now Vede spoke, saying: Alas, O my father, I dropped the holy book, the Veda I am writing. In my fright I let it fall. It is not sized yet, and if it rains before morning, the holy words will be lost! And not for a thousand worlds would I go back to the grove tonight. Oos said: Nor I, for a thousand worlds! Whe‑ish said: For all the gold and silver in the world I would not go there tonight.

24/19.16. They all spoke in the same way except Hog, and with all the love they bore for Ormazd's words, not doubting they were His very words, not one would venture among the evil spirits they had seen, to recover the book.

24/19.17. Then Brahma spoke, saying: For many generations Ormazd has labored for this; I will go myself; I know He will protect me at all times and in all places. And Brahma rose up to depart; but then Hog spoke, saying: No, father; you are old; I am fresh and young, and besides, I know there are no spirits but in the imagination of men. I will go alone!

24/19.18. Neither will I carry a lantern or a torch; nor will I whistle or sing. I will confront all the evil spirits of hell and their captains. I will recover that book tonight even if I have to scrape every leaf from Ebon grove! And mark my words, I will return unscathed; nor will I see or hear a spirit all the time I am gone. || So, only Hog and Brahma were fearless.

24/19.19. With that, Hog departed, and after a while he returned, rejoicing, bringing the book; and he said: I neither saw nor heard a spirit, and I declare to you that none of you saw or heard them, for there are none. The extreme bent of your minds makes these imaginings seem real. And as to the great Light, with the words, Love, Wisdom and Power, which I also saw, I say to you, it is some emanation from this, our holy and most loved father. How often have we heard him use those same words! And as to those figures that talked, and had the semblance of men and women, even to the detail of their garments, I say to you all, they emanate from the same source, from our father, Brahma.

24/19.20. Now Yu‑tiv spoke, saying: O happy unbelief, my son! O if only I had been born as you! O if only I had never seen such sights as I saw tonight!

24/19.21. Then Oos said: O happy brother, our youngest born! If only I were like you! O the vulgarity of those hands that came upon me tonight!

24/19.22. Vus said: O if only I had never known the unseen world! O if only I had been born in darkness like you, our most favored brother! ||

24/19.23. Similarly the rest of them, except Brahma, spoke deploringly of their gift of su'is; and when they had finished speaking, the angel of God spoke through Brahma, saying: While it is yet night, I speak. With the dawn, at sunrise, comes the Father's Voice. Hear me, then, briefly, without expecting much wisdom, for I am not long born in heaven:

24/19.24. The Creator created two great men, the Faithist and the unbeliever; the first has passed through the trials of the flesh, and attained to the Father's Voice; for in becoming one with the Father, he no longer stands in fear of anything in heaven or earth. The glory of constant resurrection is before him forever.

24/19.25. All men who have not attained to this may be compared to a man going up a slippery hillside, who often rises high, but suddenly slides low. They glorify themselves for their own light, wisdom and good gifts, rejoicing for self's sake for the glories that have fallen upon them. But they are cowards.

24/19.26. Nevertheless, the Creator created a great man among these; and that is the unbelieving man. He has neither gold nor silver, nor house nor land; and he is without spiritual sight or spiritual hearing; but his glory is in understanding his own understanding.

24/19.27. He is the one who subdues the forest, and tames the beasts of the field to man's service. He goes alone in the dark, fearing nothing. He does not follow the course of any man, but searches for himself; the priest cannot make him believe, nor can the angels of heaven; none can subdue his judgment. He sees the glory of the earth and manhood. He calls to the multitude, saying: Why do you permit others, even priests, to think for you? Arise, and be a man! Arise, and be a woman!

24/19.28. He inspires of the earth and for the earth; through his arm tyrants and evil kings are overthrown. Through him doctrines and religions are sifted to the bottom, and the falsehood and evil in them cast aside. Yes, who but Ormazd could have created so great a man as the unbeliever?

24/19.29. And these two men, the Faithist and the unbeliever, do most of all the good that is done in the world; one labors at the top of the hill, calling upward; the other labors at the bottom of the hill, pushing upward.

CHAPTER 20 First Book God





24/20.1. On the next morning, at sunrise, Ormazd spoke again through Brahma, and Vede wrote down the words; and on the succeeding morning, the same; and so it continued for forty days; and in forty days, behold, the Veda was completed; the holy words of Brahma were written.

24/20.2. God said to Brahma: Go now, and preach my gospel to whoever will listen, proclaiming liberty to all who will follow you. I will be with you to the end. And you shall take Yu‑tiv, your wife, and all your sons with you, even Hog, the youngest born.

24/20.3. So Brahma went forth preaching by day, and exhibiting the spirits of the dead by night. But to the chosen he spoke at dawn, in the early morning, the time the All Light was upon him. And his sons also preached and explained; and Yu-tiv explained to all women how it was with her when pregnant with her sons. Only Hog did not preach; nor did he open his mouth before the populace as to his unbelief. In his soul he said: These things may be true, and if they are true, it is well. If they are not true, still, the believing of them, by the populace, works righteousness and goodness. With all my philosophy, I cannot move the multitude to righteousness. But my father makes them like a flock of sheep; they cease from evil, and they practice good fellowship. Therefore, I will stand by my father to the end.

24/20.4. When Brahma came near a city, he halted outside the walls because there, according to law, the kings could not restrain his speech. And the multitude came out of the city to hear him, and many did not return, preferring to remain with Brahma and his sons in their camp. And when Brahma moved to another city they went with him. And in a little while the hosts of Brahma were as an army of thousands.

24/20.5. And not a few of them were men and women of wealth, and they cast their treasures at Brahma's feet, saying: Take this trash, and give me of everlasting life instead. || But men of learning did not come to Brahma; nor did the priests, kings, magicians, or consulters of oracles.

24/20.6. God said: Take your hosts and establish them in families of tens, and of twenties, hundreds, and thousands, and give a head father to each and every family. And your people shall be a people to themselves, having nothing in common with the kings' peoples.

24/20.7. Behold, my angel will go with you, and show you the wastelands, those that the kings' peoples do not desire; and you and your people shall possess the lands and dwell together in love and wisdom, doing good to one another.

24/20.8. So Brahma did as commanded, and he established the mountains of Roam, and the valleys in the mountains of Roam; and his people dwelt there, being six thousand eight hundred and twenty, men, women and children.

24/20.9. And there came to Brahma a certain captain‑general of the army of King Syaythaha, of the West Kingdom of Vind'yu, in which lay the city of Gowschamgamrammus, of a million inhabitants, and he said to Brahma:

24/20.10. In the name of the king, mightiest of men, Syaythaha, I am before you, O Brahma. Behold, the king sends you gold, silver and copper, saying: Brahma is good! Brahma shall give me the blessing of heaven!

24/20.11. Brahma answered the captain‑general, saying: Brahma salutes the king, mightiest of men, Syaythaha, in the name of Ormazd, the Creator, in love and in these wise words that come to the soul of Brahma. Brahma sends the king's servant, who is the captain‑general, back to the king, with his gold, silver and copper, saying: Deal with your Creator and not with men! The Great Spirit holds all blessings in His own hands. Give Him your treasures!

24/20.12. The captain‑general departed and returned with his gold, silver and copper to the king, and told the king Brahma's words. The king was pleased with the wisdom of Brahma, but also felt rebuked and sore at heart. So Ormazd allowed satan to possess the king for a season; and the king resolved to destroy Brahma and all his people. And he commanded the captain‑general to assemble together fifty thousand men, with arms, ready for battle. And when they were thus prepared, and started on their journey, which would require seven days, the king thought to inquire of the oracle as to his best mode of success.

24/20.13. Now the angel of God had taken possession of the oracle, but the magi did not know it, nor did Syaythaha. So the king came before the sand table, and the spirit wrote these words: He who has become one with Ormazd is mightier than an army. Take off your crown, O king, mightiest of men, and your golden robes, and all that is fine and fair to look upon, and clothe yourself in the poorest of garments, like a druk who wanders about. But your crown and your costly robes, and your raiment, fine and fair to look upon, put them on your body servant. And the pair of you shall go in advance of the army, as you come before Brahma.

24/20.14. And you shall witness that man who professes to labor for the poor, fall on his belly before the man of riches and power. And behold, O king, you shall feel justified in destroying him who falls before the crown and robes, knowing he is a hypocrite.

24/20.15. The king was pleased with this, and he fulfilled all that was commanded by the oracle; and when he came near Brahma's camp, a man came before the king's servant, saying: Behold, O king, command me as you will! And he prostrated himself on the ground before the king's servant. At which the king, dressed as a druk, came to him and said: Who are you? And the man answered: Be gone, beggar! My matter is with the king! (For he mistook which was which.)

24/20.16. The king ordered the man to be seized and taken away and put to death; and the advance guard fell upon the man and slew him with war clubs. And when the man was quite dead, behold, Brahma came, and the king did not know him, nor did any of his advance guard. And Vus and Whe‑ish were with their father, and the three came and stood by the dead man. Brahma then took the king's hand, saying: You, dressed in the garb of a druk, come here, for you have flesh and blood toward holiness. Lay one hand on the dead man; put your other hand on my head, for I will prove Ormazd before your eyes. Behold, you who have tried to kill Brahma, killed another person!

24/20.17. And when the king's hands were placed, Brahma stood by the head of the dead man, and his two sons by the heart; and Brahma said: In Your name, O Ormazd, and by Your power in me, return to life, O man! And arise! Arise! Arise!

24/20.18. And behold, the man was brought to life, and rose up and stood before the multitude.

24/20.19. The king trembled with fear, and the guard stood aback, |811| amazed. And as for the servant arrayed in the king's garb, he cast aside the crown and robes, and fled into the forest.

24/20.20. Brahma said to the king: Here stands the angel of Ormazd, and the angel says you are the king in disguise, and, moreover, that he, the angel, commanded you here for this purpose, saying to you in the oracle: He who has become one with Ormazd is mightier than an army!

24/20.21. The king said: This is true. I swear before You, O Ormazd, from this time forward I will wear such garments as these I have on, and my life shall be given to Your service. Let who will, take my kingdom and all I called mine.

24/20.22. So Syaythaha joined Brahma's hosts; and with Syaythaha came his brothers and their sons and daughters. And those who came, cast into a heap whatever goods or moneys they had, and the head fathers of the families divided and distributed the same according to their best wisdom. And Brahma's people, by commandment of Brahma, called themselves not Brahmans, but Vedans, that is, Truth‑followers.

24/20.23. In those days the language of the kings of Vind'yu, and of men of learning, was All‑ao, signifying, Out of all that is good. But the Vedans were the unlearned, and their language was imperfect, and had many meanings for every spoken and written word.

24/20.24. And God foresaw the liability |812| to corruption of the Brahman religion, and he spoke to Brahma, saying: Behold, I have given you seven sons, six of light and one of darkness. Your six sons of light shall each establish a school among my chosen, and teach my scriptures by word of mouth. And all who afterward become rab'bahs shall be capable of repeating every word of the Veda by heart. And if, in later times, the plates and the books of my holy religion are destroyed by war, it will not matter. The substance of your labors shall live.

24/20.25. Then Brahma's sons did as commanded, each and every one becoming a teacher. And again God spoke to Brahma, saying: Arise, and go where my angel will lead you, taking your wife and your son Hog, with you. And you shall travel from place to place for two years, and then return here, for your labor will be completed.

CHAPTER 21 First Book God





24/21.1. The place thus founded by Brahma was called Haraoyo, and his people, at this time, extended to seven cities and thirty villages, and possessed all the country of Roam, which had been uninhabited for hundreds of years. And the Vedans cultivated the lands, living on fruits, roots, and bread made from wheat grown in the fields; but they ate neither fish nor flesh, nor anything that had breathed the breath of life.

24/21.2. Brahma, Yu‑tiv and their youngest son, Hog, departed from Haraoyo, accompanied by seven disciples, and they went forth under the direction of the angels of Ormazd, to preach and explain the Veda, carrying one book with them. And they first went to the northeast, through the kingdoms of Haomsut, Ali‑oud, Zeth, and Wowtichiri; then westerly to Hatiqactra, where the tyrant, Azhi‑Aven, had built a temple of skulls, like the ancients. Azhi kept six dens of lions, for devouring his condemned slaves. So, because of oppression, the kingdom of Azhi was profitable to Ormazd. From Hatiqactra, Brahma obtained three thousand followers.

24/21.3. And when Brahma had seven thousand followers, the angel of God directed him to the plains of Cpenta‑armaiti. And here he established his people, dividing them into families and villages, and appointing priests to them. And after that, Cpenta‑armaiti became renowned over all the known world. ||

24/21.4. After Cpenta-armaiti had been established, the angel directed Brahma to go to the southwest, through the kingdoms of H'spor and Vaetaeyo, and Aramya, and then to Dacyama, to the city of H'trysti, where Ormazd had a host of one thousand already inspired to join Brahma.

24/21.5. And now the angel directed Brahma to take his hosts to the mountains of T'cararativirwoh, and establish them, which he did. And behold, the time of Yu‑tiv and of Brahma was near an end, for they were grown quite old.

24/21.6. The angel said to Brahma: Great has been your labor. Very great Yu‑tiv's! Where else in all the world is such a woman? From the day you first saw her! For the glory of your sons! And in her old age to follow you, walking so far!

24/21.7. Behold, O Brahma! Yu‑tiv is weakening fast. Rise up and take her back to Haraoyo! The mountains of Roam are calling her! And your faithful son, Hog, strong and tall. Take him back with his mother. Haraoyo is calling.

24/21.8. Brahma went and looked at Yu‑tiv; and his soul spoke within him, saying: O Ormazd, have I not forgotten her in You! The mother of my Gods! O her proud young soul when first I saw her! Alas, I see, she is tottering and feeble!

24/21.9. Brahma came closer to Yu‑tiv, and she spoke to him, saying: O Brahma, you God among men! I do not know if my eyes are turning dim. But O, I have had so strange a vision even toward the high sun. It was myself I saw, rising, going upward! The earth going downward! Then I called: O Ormazd! Not alone! Behold, my God is over there! Let me go back to Brahma! Then I thought the Creator brought me back and said: Go quickly and see your godly sons in Haraoyo, for your time has come!

24/21.10. Brahma said: My angel says: Go back to Haraoyo, your labor is nearly finished. || This is why I came to you just now. It is well, therefore, for us that we return, taking Hog with us.

24/21.11. So Brahma, Yu‑tiv and Hog, with five remaining disciples, departed for Haraoyo, which lay a three days' walking journey away, and they did not know how Yu‑tiv would make it, for she was worn to the last step, and, above all, her shoes were worn out, and she had only pieces of cloth on her feet.

24/21.12. And while they were deliberating, having gone only a short distance, Hog spied a score of soldiers going in another direction, mounted on horses; and they were leading a number of spare horses with them. Then spoke the soul of Hog within him, saying to him:

24/21.13. Behold, my father has made many converts in his day, made good men out of bad ones. And he has always refused money, gifts and presents. Now, wherever justice lives I do not know; but many of the rascals who became followers of my father were conscience-stricken with ill‑gotten gains, and, finding that my father would not receive their stuff, they tried me, and behold, my pockets are full of gold and diamonds. In truth, it may have been a very devil that prompted me; but I am not supposed to know the higher light, but to know the lower. Of myself and for myself I do not want these things. If they belong to Ormazd, it follows I should not keep them. Therefore, if I give some gold or diamonds to those soldiers, they will give me a horse for my angel mother to ride on. Who knows but the nearest road for this gold to find its way to Ormazd is by way of those soldiers?

24/21.14. So Hog went away and purchased a horse, and brought it to his mother, saying: Behold, a man gives you a present in the name of Ormazd, but forbids you to retain it except to ride to Haraoyo, where you shall sell it and give the money to the poor.

24/21.15. Yu‑tiv said: A good man he was, and wise, for only on those conditions could I have accepted the horse. Accordingly, Yu‑tiv was mounted on the horse, and they proceeded on their way, going slowly, for Brahma was also near the end. And after seven days they arrived at Haraoyo, where they were received by Brahma's sons, and by all the multitude of disciples.

24/21.16. But owing to Yu‑tiv's deep love for her sons, and also being worn out, and having witnessed the glory of righteous works fulfilled through her husband and her sons, the strain was too much for her corporeal parts. And they brought straw and laid her on it, putting a bundle of straw under her head. Then she spoke, saying:

24/21.17. First to You, O Ormazd, my blessing, because You created me alive, to enjoy Your glories. Next, O Brahma! My husband, my blessing on you, God among men! You have taught me the fullness of earth and heaven! O the glory of having been your wife!

24/21.18. Then she called Whe‑ish and said: O my son, my first‑born! My blessing on you. Because I have watched you from the hour of conception, I have had the wisdom of creation demonstrated before me. O the joy when my eyes first saw you; I am going now, to prepare a place in heaven for you!

24/21.19. And, after that, Yu‑tiv blessed all her sons, and coming to Hog she said: My blessing on you, O my latest born, God among men! To all my other sons I have told my love, but to you my soul so overflows, I am nearly speechless. You have been a very God in all your ways, and yet do not believe in Ormazd; nor in heaven nor angels! For which reason I look upon you as the highest of all creations. You are good for goodness' sake; wise for wisdom's sake, happy in finding a way to master all unhappiness!

24/21.20. And these were Yu‑tiv's last words; she shut her eyes. She was dead! So they took her body, and robed it in white, and on the fourth day buried her in the forest of Roam.





CHAPTER 22 First Book God





24/22.1. On the day of Yu‑tiv's death, Brahma said: Sing no songs; pray in silence only. Let her soul be in quiet with Ormazd.

24/22.2. On the second day Brahma said: Pray in whispers, praise in whispers, the best, good deeds of the dead.

24/22.3. On the third day Brahma said: Burst forth a song of praise to Ormazd; extol the virtues of the dead.

24/22.4. On the fourth day Brahma said: In song and in prayer bid the dead arise and go onward, upward!

24/22.5. Thus on the fourth day they put Yu‑tiv's body in the ground; and then they went and sat in the sacred circle and sang and prayed for her soul to go on to Nirvana (paradise). And when they had finished, a light came down in the middle of the circle, and an angel in white appeared. It was Yu‑tiv; the soul of Yu‑tiv in the glory of Ormazd, the Creator!

24/22.6. Then the angel Yu‑tiv spoke, saying: The spirit is born from out of the head of the corporeal body; and angels stand around, where they receive the spirit of the dead onto a spirit blanket. For one day, in quiet, they keep the spirit, teaching it to reconcile and understand. On the second day, the spirit hears the prayers of the earth‑people coming upward; and on the third day, the spirit understands death and birth of spirit.

24/22.7. And on the fourth day, when you sang: O Goddess, arise from the dead! The Father calls you from on high! Arise, O Goddess, and go your way! Then my spirit was free from the earth, resting in the arms of Gods and Goddesses who had come from on high to receive me. Thus, O my beloveds, the first resurrection is on the third day; and, to the holy, the second resurrection begins on the fifth day. After the fifth day do not call me back again! My labor lies up there! I must build houses for you all. Thus Ormazd sends me on before! If it is His will for me to return to you at times, I will return. His will above all---this is the greatest wisdom.

24/22.8. Whe-ish, her first‑born, asked: What about the angels of the intermediate world, O mother? Then his angel mother answered, saying: They were shown to us in Ebon grove! Alas, some of them do not begin the resurrection for a thousand years!

24/22.9. Then Yu‑tiv, the angel, came over near Hog, her latest born, whom she loved so much. She said: Can you see me, my son? Hog answered: No, I only faintly see a glimmering light: I hear a voice, but it does not sound like my mother's voice. Yet, if it is true that there is a soul that lives after death, and if in truth you are the very spirit and soul of her who brought me forth, do not be unhappy because of my unbelief. As for myself, I am happy because you brought me forth in unbelief; nor would I choose to be any other way. Whether our eyes are blue or black, or whether we are tall or short, believers or disbelievers, or however we are created, to fill our place in doing good to others with all our wisdom and strength, is this not glory enough?

24/22.10. Yu‑tiv said: O you wisest of men! In the day you are born in heaven, you shall not linger long in the intermediate world, but be crowned a very God indeed! Here ends my labors with the earth, O, my beloveds! An otevan above waits for me to ascend; the Gods and Goddesses are calling me! Farewell, my beloveds! Farewell!

24/22.11. And now the music of heaven descended, and even while the mortals sang, the very gates of heaven opened, and the angel Yu‑tiv rose upward in a sea of fire!

24/22.12. But behold, the love of great Brahma was too much for him! His eyes raised upward after the ascending light, and his soul burst within him. He fell down and stretched himself on the cold earth! He, too, was dead.

24/22.13. Then burst the mighty hearts of Brahma's sons. The whole earth shook with the wail of Gods. The wind, the air above the earth, stood still, and the forest of Roam shuddered as if the earth were broken in two. Then wailed the sons and daughters of Haraoyo. Though no man uttered it, yet all knew that great Brahma was dead.





CHAPTER 23 First Book God





24/23.1. The angel of God came in the sacred circle and stood in its center. He said: Greeting, in the name of Ormazd! In His name I speak before you. First, then, who of all that was dearest to Brahma, he or she, shall arise!

24/23.2. And lo and behold, there arose every man, woman and child, more than ten thousand. The angel said: You, his most beloved, shall bury his body by the side of Yu‑tiv. You shall bury him on the third day after his death, even at the hour of his death. And you shall sit around the grave three times a day, morning, noon and night, for one hour each time, singing and praying for the soul of Brahma; and you shall do this for two days.

24/23.3. And behold, on the evening of the second day you shall see the graves of both Brahma and Yu‑tiv opened, and their very bodies will come forth, and Brahma shall speak with you face to face. || The angel then disappeared.

24/23.4. And the people did as commanded; and they sat around the graves in a circle, at a distance of ten paces from the graves, watching. And the brothers favored Hog above all the rest, so that he might be converted. And it came to pass, in the evening of the second day, two hours after sunset, there descended into the center of the circle a light, bright as the sun, so that the multitude held their hands before their eyes; and it was so bright that even the graves could not be seen, and the graves burst open.

24/23.5. And after a moment, the light was lowered so all could look upon the scene; and, lo and behold, Brahma and Yu‑tiv stood arm in arm, in the middle of the circle, in their own flesh and bones wearing their burial robes.

24/23.6. Brahma said: Have faith in the Creator; with Him all things are possible. He is the All Master of all things. Never accept any God, Lord, Savior, priest, or king, but Him only, the everlasting All One, the Person.

24/23.7. Practicing good works to all men; abjuring self in all things; and Ormazd will dwell with you and in you forever.

24/23.8. Then Brahma and Yu‑tiv came near Hog, so that he could see clearly. Hog said: Are you truly Brahma, my father; and you, Yu‑tiv, my mother? Yu‑tiv did not speak, but Brahma said: I am your father, even Brahma. To practice the highest light a man has; this is all that is required of any man.

24/23.9. Hog said: In truth it is my father! In truth it is my mother!

24/23.10. Brahma said: We are blessed! This is the first belief: to believe in the spirit surviving the corporeal body; the second belief is to learn the All Person. After this comes faith.

24/23.11. Hog said: You have proven the first; but as to the All Person, I cannot understand.

24/23.12. Brahma said: As I and your mother have revealed ourselves to you, and so proven ourselves, so in due season Ormazd will reveal Himself to you.

24/23.13. And these were the last words. Brahma and Yu‑tiv rose up in the sea of fire, smiling and waving their hands in love to those beneath, rising higher and higher, till they disappeared in the sky.

24/23.14. Then the people went and witnessed that the graves were open and the bodies gone. They filled up the places, and set a post inscribed: Tomb of Brahma and Yu‑tiv, God and Goddess.






CHAPTER 24 First Book God

The first Bible of Guatama (America)---being of Eawahtah, a man chosen by God for the children of Guatama |813|





24/24.1. In Guatama, in the Middle Kingdom (Central America), by the sea of So‑ci‑a‑pan (Gulf of Mexico), down from heaven came Gitchee, the Creator, the World‑Maker, Manito! With silence, speaking in the soul of things. He said: Speak, O earth! Have eyes, O earth! Have ears, O earth! Behold Me, your Maker!

24/24.2. The earth answered Him, not with words, boasting, but raised up man!

24/24.3. Man said: Here I am, O Gitchee! The Creator looked, and lo and behold, the I'hins of Guatama stood before Him, the little people, white and yellow. Gitchee (God) said: Because you have answered me in faith, O earth, your ong'wee (talking animals) shall be called I'hin. Thus was named the first talkers; men with mouths for words, ears for words.

24/24.4. Then Gitchee (God) called the I'hins together, and said they were good; the handsomest of all created creations. And he commanded them to marry, male and female, and beget heirs.

24/24.5. And they obeyed God's commands; but the dumb earth cast clouds upward, and blinded the ways of the I'hins, so they strayed away from the mounds, and came to the black druks, |814| which do not speak; have no words; being dumb like the black mud of the earth where they burrowed.

24/24.6. In the darkness of the earth the I'hins mingled with the druks, and lo and behold, a second-born speaking animal (ong'wee, man) stood upon the earth, tall and red, and strong, swift and handsome. Gitchee (God) said:

24/24.7. I do not blame you, O I'hin! I saw the darkness; saw your straits! But you shall never again dwell with druks, nor with the new red‑born, those with faces like new copper. Call them I'hua, for they shall be protectors over my chosen, the I'hins, forever. The I'hua shall drive away the baugh and mieu |815| and great serpents, and all man‑slaying beasts; for I will make mighty nations out of the seed of the I'huans.

24/24.8. The first I'huan's name was O-e-du, and his wife's name was Uh-na; and they begot Owena, Dan and Shu-sa, but they had no more heirs. At a time soon after, the second man, whose name was Ka-ka-ooh, and whose wife's name was Wees, begot Somma, Pan-ah, Kac-ak, Ku-bak and Jessom.

24/24.9. And these were the first tribes of I'huans in the land of Guatama (after the flood), and they dwelt together, marrying and begetting offspring, dwelling in peace. And the I'hins taught them about all things, so that they became an honor on the earth and a glory to the Creator; but they were so mixed together that one tribe had no preference over another. So, by commandment of God, they were called the tribe of Oedukakaooh, |816| of the middle kingdom, Waneopanganosah (Central America).

24/24.10. In the valley of Owak, by the river Ho‑e‑jon‑wan, Gitchee (Jehovih) created another tribe called Bak‑Haw‑ugh, and to the north of them, in the mountains was the tribe Meiu‑how‑an‑go‑to‑bah; and their tribes commingled, and Gitchee (God) named them, Bakhawughmeiuhowangotobah.

24/24.11. Jessom, son of Kakaooh, married Wepon, daughter of Bakhawughmeiuhowangotobah, and they begot Sto‑gil‑bak, and he begot Kom, and he begot See, and she married Ban, son of the tribe Kakaooh, and Ban's first‑born son's name was La‑ban‑a‑see.

24/24.12. And Labanasee was born in su'is of the second order, and could hear the voice of the Creator, Gitchee, the Great Spirit. And the Voice remained with Labanasee during his lifetime, which was one hundred and twenty-five years. And the Voice descended to Labanasee's son, Hootlabanasee, who lived one hundred and one years, and the Voice descended to his son, Hatapanagooshhootlaban­asee; and then to his son after him, named Arapanseekasoodativhatapanagooshhootlabanasee. |817|

24/24.13. Thus were represented the eighteen tribes of Gitchee's chosen among the I'huans who would become everlasting heirs to the Voice.

24/24.14. And God said to Ara: Arise and go forth; my hand will steer you. So Ara rose up and departed by the hand of the Creator, and came to the valley of Owg, broad and sweet‑smelling, full of health‑giving food, air and water. And there came with Ara into Owg one thousand men, women and children; and they built a city and called it Eftspan, signifying place of beauty.

24/24.15. And these took the name of the tribe of Ara, which name survived one thousand seven hundred and fifty years. And their people were tens of thousands.

24/24.16. After the tribe of Ara lost the Voice, there was raised up Sho‑shone, of the tribes of Sto‑gil‑bak. And Gitchee raised His hand before Sho‑shone and pointed the way, and Sho‑shone departed out of the country of Tabachoozehbakkankan and came to Owg, and took to wife Hisam, daughter of Ooeguffanauha, and they begot E‑a‑ron‑a‑ki‑mutz, a son of great beauty and strength, a swift runner.

24/24.17. And the voice of Gitcheemonihtee (Son of Jehovih |818|) came to Earonakimutz and remained with him during his natural lifetime, which was ninety years; and passed to his son, Fassawanhootaganganearonakimutz, and then to his son, Monagoamyazazhufassawanhootaganganearona­kimutz. |819|

24/24.18. And Monag inhabited the regions of the plains of Yiteatuazow (Arkansas), and his people became mighty in cities and agriculture. For four thousand years the Voice of the All Father remained with the regular succession of the heirs of Monag, but their names and their cities' names became so long that no man could speak them or write them.

24/24.19. So Gitchee (Jehovih) raised up Honga, son of Ab, of the tribe of Oedu, of the land of the Middle Kingdom. And Honga went into the mountains of Ghiee (Rocky or Eagle Mountains), |820| sloping to the east.

24/24.20. Gitchee (God) spoke to Honga, saying: You shall take Oebe for your wife; out of your seed I will raise up a greater tribe than all other tribes; and your first‑born son shall have your name; and your son's son shall be called Honga also; and your son's son's son, and so on forever. For I am wearied with the burden of names; your Great Creator has spoken.

24/24.21. Then Honga asked, saying: What if I have no son, but only daughters? Or what if my son or my son's son (my lineage) ceases to have a son, but only daughters?

24/24.22. Then Gitchee spoke, saying: The wife's first daughter shall take the name Honga. || So it came to pass that Honga married and begot heirs; and the Voice of the Great Spirit remained with the tribes of Honga. And it came about that he who heard the Voice, who was always the chief high prophet for the tribe, was called Hoanga; but the peoples themselves were called ong'wee, the same that has endured to this day, and is called Indian [Native American --ed.].

24/24.23. And the generations of Honga were called: first Honga; second Honga; third Honga; and so on. And this was the beginning of the counting of time in Guatama. Nor did any man know the number of generations before the time of Honga the first.

24/24.24. And the land became full of cities, from the east to the west, and from the north to the south, and the people all over the land dwelt in peace, tribe with tribe. Then came the God of evil, I'tura (Ahura), sowing evil in the temples and on the altars. With a false tongue and cunning, he came before the prophets, stealing their eyes away, stealing their ears away; holding up his hand, saying: It is the Great Spirit's hand.

24/24.25. And I'tura obsessed the nations and tribes of men to worship him; |821| infatuating them with the stories of far‑off countries, and the glory of kings and queens. And he set on foot a war of plunder; brought ten thousand times ten thousand evil spirits to aid and abet |822| mortals in war.

24/24.26. And I'tura, the God of evil, taught mortals to flatten the head, to make prophets, and, lo and behold, the land of Guatama became a land of seers, prophets and conjurers, seeking evil for sake of evil; consulting the spirits of the dead for war and for earthly glory in blood and death.



813  That is, this is the first bible for a race of Guatamans other than the I'hin, the latter having had many bibles over the cycles.




















814  Again, this must be the statistical mode. Interestingly, while in Guatama those of the druk race were thus chiefly black, yet we learn shortly in Oahspe that in Arabin'ya, Par'si'e and Jaffeth, their mode was brown. Keep in mind, though, that in these modern times of Kosmon, skin color alone is neither sufficient to determine lineage, nor is it determinative of spiritual grade, and, moreover, every person alive today has both druk and I'hin lineage in them.

816  Pronunciation guide: O-e-du-ka-ka-o-oh, that is, Oedukakaooh is a combination word (Yi-ha language) referring to the commingling of two tribes, the Oedu + Kakaooh, and their descendants (see verse 8). That is, the compounded names in this Guataman history portion are in the Yi-ha language (see 19/2.5), and many of the lengthy words found in these Guataman chapters are compounded from earlier mentioned tribes. Too, the reader should note that the hyphens in the words are there as pronunciation aids, and as such can be removed as shown in some instances throughout this book. For examples, Ka-ka-ooh in verse 8, is the same as the Kakaooh portion of Oedukakaooh of verse 9; and La-ban-a-see and Labanasee of verses 11 and 12 refer to the same person.

CHAPTER 25 First Book God





24/25.1. These, then, were the principal kings of that day (before I'tura's attack): Lanoughl, king of Eboostakgan, a city of tens of thousands, in the valley of Aragaiyistan. Lanoughl was the son of Toogaooga­haha, who was the son of Eviphraiganakukuwonpan, who was the son of Oyoyughstuhaipawehaha, who built the canal (oseowa) of Papaeunugheutowa, which extended from the sea of Hoola'hoola'pan (Lake Superior) to the plains of Aigonquehanelachahoba (Texas), near the sea of Sociapan, where dwelt Heothahoga, king of kings, whose temple was roofed with copper and silver. Ten thousand boats (canoes) plied the canal, extending along, carrying copper and silver from the north regions to the cities of the valley of Hapembapanpan, and to the cities of the mountains of Oaramgallachacha, and to Ghiee, home of Honga the first, the mightiest of red men.

24/25.2. Next in power to Lanoughl was Tee-see-gam-ba-o-rakaxax, king of the city of Chusanimbapan, in the plains of Erezehoegammas (Central America), with twelve tributary cities extending along the river Akaistaazachahaustomakmak, to the mountains of Nefsaidawowotchachaeengamma.

24/25.3. And the third king in power was Chiawassaibakanalszhoo, of the city of Inuistahahaha­crom­cromahoesuthaha, and tributary to him were twenty-seven cities and their kings.

24/25.4. Chiawassaibakanalszhoo was the son of Tenehamgameralhuchsukzhaistomaipowwassaa, who was son of Thusaiganganenosatamakka, who built the great east canal, the Oseowagallaxacola, in the rich valley of Tiedaswonoghassie, and through the land of Seganeogalgalyaluciahomaahomhom [most likely Louisiana and Mississippi --Ed.], where dwelt the large men and women, the Ongewahapackaka-ganganecola­bazkoaxax.

24/25.5. The fourth great king of Guatama was Hooagalomarakkadanapanwowwow, king of the city of Itussakegollahamganseocolabah, which had seventeen tributary cities of tens of thousands of people. And his kingdom extended from sea to sea in the Middle Kingdom (Panama). Here stood the temple of Giloff, with a thousand columns of polished mahogany [Pharsak --Ed.], and with a dome of copper and silver. And within Giloff dwelt the Osheowena, the oracle of the Creator, for two thousand years.

24/25.6. The fifth great king was Penambatta, king of the city of Liscararzakyatasagangan, on the High Heogula Ophat (Tennessee), with thirty tributary cities of tens of thousands of inhabitants. Here was situated the school and college of great learning, the Ahazahohoputan, where tens of thousands of students were taught. Penambatta was learned, and had traveled far, devoting his life to imparting knowledge. He had six thousand attendants, besides six hundred and forty officers.

24/25.7. The sixth great king was Hoajab, son of Teutsangtusicgammooghsapanpan, founder of the kilns of Wooboohakhak. Hoajab's capital city was Farejonkahomah, with thirty‑three tributary cities, having tens of thousands of inhabitants, on the plains of He'gow (Southeastern Ohio).

24/25.8. The seventh great king was Hiroughskahogamsoghtabakbak, and his capital city was Hoesughsoosiamcholabonganeobanzhohahhah, situated in the plains of Messogowanchoola [Indiana, North Ohio and Pennsylvania --Ed.], and extending eastward to the mountains of Gonzhoowas­sicmachababdohuyapiasondrythoajaj, including the valleys of the river Onepagassathalalanganchoochoo, even to the sea, Poerthawowitcheothunacalclachax­zhloschistacombia (Lake Erie). Hiro had forty-seven tributary cities of tens of thousands of inhabitants.

24/25.9. Between the great kings and their great capitals were a thousand canals, crossing the country in every direction, from east to west and from north to south, so that the seas of the north were connected with the seas of the south. The people traveled in kanoos (canoes), and carried the products of the land to all directions. Besides the canals mentioned, there were seven other great canals, named after the kings who built them, and they extended across the plains in many directions, but chiefly east and west.

24/25.10. These were: Oosgaloomaigovolobanaz­hooegollopan, and Halagazhapanpanegoochoo, and Fillioistagovonchobiassoso, and Anetiabolalachoo­esanggomacoaloabonbakkak, and Ehabadangon­zhooe­portalicha-boggasa-megitcheepapa, and Onepa­pollagassayamganshuniatedoegonachoogan­gitiavato­osomchooibalgadgad, and Hachooaolagobwotchacha­bakaraxexgan­hammaz­hooelapanpan.

24/25.11. In those days the kings and learned men set their hearts on building canals and finding places and roadways for them, and the great glory and honor of man at that time lay in this achievement.

24/25.12. And God (Gitchee), perceiving the virtue and wisdom of men, sent his angels to teach man the mystery of canal‑making; to teach him to compound clay with lime and sand, to hold water; |823| to teach man to find the gau, |824| the level, and the force of water. The angels also taught man to make pots and kettles; to burn the clay in suitable shapes; to find copper ore and silver ore, and gold and lead for the floors of the oracle chambers, clean and shining white, suitable for angels.

24/25.13. And they taught man how to soften copper like dough; how to harden copper like flint rock, for axes and mattocks for building canals; |825| taught man how to work the ore in the fire and melt (smelt) it; and how to make lead into sheets, like cloth.

24/25.14. Taught man to till the soil and grow wheat and corn; taught the women how to grind it and make bread. Taught the hunters how to slay the lion, the tiger, and the mastodon, the Hogawatha, the rooting animal of wisdom. |826|

24/25.15. Besides all these inhabited regions there lay another country to the far west, fifty days' journey, the land of Goeshallobok [Utah --Ed.], a place of sand and salt, and hot, boiling waters. And the breadth of this region took twenty days' journey east and west, but its span north and south took fifty days' journey.

24/25.16. In the High North lay the kingdom of Olegalla, the land of giants, the place of yellow rocks and high spouting waters (geysers). It was Olegalla who gave away his kingdom, the great city of Powafuchawowitchahavagganeabba, with the twenty-four tributary cities spread along the valley of Anemoosagoochakakfuela [Yellowstone Valley --Ed.]; gave his kingdom to his queen Minnegane‑washaka, with the yellow hair, long, hanging down. And the queen built two hundred and seventy temples, and two adjacent to the spouting waters, where her people went every morning at sunrise, singing praise to Gitchee, Monihtee, the Creator.

24/25.17. South of Olegalla lay the kingdom of Onewagga, surrounding the sea of Chusa‑mangaobe hassahgana‑wowitchee [the salt lake --Ed.], in the valley of Mauegobah, which is to say, consecrated place of the Voice, a kingdom of forty cities. Here reigned for twenty generations the line of kings called Wineohgushagusha, most holy and wise, full of manliness and strong limbed. To the east of the lake lay the Woohootaughnee, the ground of games and tournaments, where tens of thousands came every autumn to exhibit their strength, carrying horses and oxen, and running and leaping, and running races with the trained aegamma [deer --Ed.]. And to the strongest and the swiftest, the king gave prizes of handsome damsels, with straight limbs and shapely necks, proud, who loved to be awarded handsome, mighty husbands.

24/25.18. To the south of Onewagga lay the kingdom of Himallawowoaganapapa, rich in legends of the people who lived here before the flood; a kingdom of seventy cities and six great canals coursing east and west, and north and south, from the Ghiee Mountain, in the east, to the west mountain, the Yublahahcolaesava­ganawakka, the place of the king of bears, the Eeughohabakax (grizzly). And to the south, to the Middle Kingdom, on the deserts of Geobiatha­ganeganewohwoh, where the rivers do not empty into the sea, but sink in the sand, the Sonagallakaxax, creating prickly Thuazhoogallak­hoomma, shaped like a pear.

CHAPTER 26 First Book God





24/26.1. I'tura, God of evil, dweller in hell, looked over the broad earth; saw the land of Guatama, the mighty races of I'huans. And his mouth watered, like a lion's when a lamb stands before him. I'tura called his legions, tens of thousands of drujas, devils from the regions of hell: Come, he said, I have found a rich feeding place. Behold, I will make my kingdoms wider; spread out the walls of hell and gather in this great harvest of innocent souls.

24/26.2. Then came I'tura's hosts of evil, ten times tens of thousands, for such is the nature of spirits and men; |827| call for ten thousand to do a righteous work, and only a hundred come; call for ten thousand to do an unholy work, and behold, ten times ten thousand come. They said to I'tura:

24/26.3. How shall we proceed? Where shall we strike? And I'tura, wise in wickedness, said: Go to the temples, the places of shining copper and silver, and obsess every one of their oracles. And when the kings and the learned men come to consult Gitchee, my deadly enemy, you shall assume to be Him, and answer them with lies and all types of unprofitable speculation; turn them upside down; make them curse Gitchee; make them ask for I'tura. And when madness comes upon them, follow them to their sleeping couches and whisper in their souls that their neighbors are their deadly enemies. Incite them to war and to all manner of deeds of death; and when they overturn each other's kingdoms and houses, and their dead lie like ashes over all the land, gather in their distracted spirits to fill my mighty kingdom with Gitchee's harvest!

24/26.4. Then answered the hosts of I'tura (who was known in heaven as Ahura): Most mighty God, what are your prizes, for the souls of men, for souls to extend your heavenly kingdom?

24/26.5. I'tura answered, saying: According to the number of subjects any angel brings me, so will I exalt him to be a captain, or a general, or a Lord, or a God, and he shall have a sub‑kingdom in my heavenly regions, with thousands of servants to do his bidding.

24/26.6. With that the evil God and his evil spirits fell to work, night and day; and lo and behold, the fair land of Guatama was overspread with human blood. Fell war |828| spread throughout all the mighty kingdoms; kingdom against kingdom; city against city; man against man.

24/26.7. And the holy temples were pulled down or burnt; the canals broken and wasted; the cities set ablaze; and the fields laid desolate. With no grain growing, the grinding mills of the women lay silent, like the dead stretched over all the fields!

24/26.8. Into the far-off forest fled the women with the children, hungry, weeping, starving. And the cities went down; the nations went down; the tribes of men were broken up; only remnants here and there remained. And where once had been great and mighty peoples, lay only heaps of ruins, past the power of man to rebuild.

24/26.9. Then the Creator, the Great Spirit, looked down from the highest heaven; saw the work of desolation; saw I'tura at his bloody work.

24/26.10. And the Great Spirit cried out with a loud voice, so that earth and heaven shook with the power of His voice, sifting all things, as a woman sifts meal. And He found one grain of corn not ground by the God of evil, found Honga! The tribes so firmly sworn to the Great Spirit that the words of the evil Gods and evil spirits rolled off and took no hold on them.

24/26.11. The Great Spirit saw the tribes of Honga, they who stuck most to the I'hins, the sacred little people, white and yellow, often marrying with them, thus preserving the stock to the Hand and Voice. And He called loud and long: Honga! Honga! Honga!

24/26.12. The Creator would not be put off with silence; called again: Honga! Honga! Honga! But He heard only His Own Voice resounding far; knew only His mighty Power! Again He called: Honga! Honga! Honga!

24/26.13. In the first call, I'tura and his evil hosts ran away. In His second call, it was like springtime, after heavy winter. And in the third call, it was like budding summer. And from the seed of Honga a sprout came up, an I'huan; taller than any other man with a bright shining face of copper; shining as if all the destroyed temples glistened in his broad head.

24/26.14. And he spoke, saying: Here, O Great Spirit, here I am! And the Great Spirit said: Who are you, My Son? And he answered: I am Son of the Creator. Then asked the Great Spirit: Of what tribe? And he answered: My flesh is nothing; my genealogy is of the spirit. Of the I'hin my mother; of the I'huan my father.

24/26.15. Then said the Creator: For which reason, I name you Eawahtah, spirit and flesh evenly balanced, best of men. Come with Me; walk along with Me; you shall reinstate the tribes of men; deliver them out of darkness; make them worshipful.

24/26.16. Eawahtah said: I am Your servant, O Great Spirit. What shall I call You, so that the tribes of men shall no longer be distrustful? Then answered the Creator: Call Me after the wind, O Eawahtah!

24/26.17. Eawahtah said: How after the wind? The Great Spirit said: Come with Me, My Son. Then Eawahtah walked along and came to a place where the wind blew in the leaves.

24/26.18. The Creator said: Tell Me, My Son, what does the wind in the leaves say? And Eawahtah answered: E! Then the Creator took Eawahtah to the big sea water, and asked: What does the wind in the water |829| say, My Son?

24/26.19. And Eawahtah answered: Go! Then the Creator took Eawahtah to the high crags, the rocks above the clouds, piercing, where the wind whistled; and He said: What does the wind say, My Son? And Eawahtah answered: Quim!

24/26.20. And the Great Spirit said: Call Me Egoquim, O My Son. I am three in One; the earth and all that is in and on the earth, and all the stars, moon and sun; they are one of My members. And the air above the earth, the Atontea, is another member of My Person. And higher yet; in the high place above the air, is the ether; the great penetrator; and that is the third member of My Person. I am everywhere, far and near; all things your eye sees, all things your ear hears, are of Me and in Me.

24/26.21. Whatever is one with Me has no hard labor. Behold the flowers of the field; I color them. Behold the ant and the honeybee; I lead them; the bird I teach how to build.

24/26.22. Man alone is stubborn, setting up ways of his own. O if he could learn to be one with Me! To move and labor with Me! Then spoke Eawahtah, saying: Holy Egoquim! I will go and teach man, give him Your words; make him understand.

24/26.23. Egoquim said: For that labor I called you forth, made you tall and handsome, with strong limbs, and broad shoulders. Come, then, My Son, I will go with you; into all the lands; among all the scattered tribes; your voice shall be My Voice. Do not fear, for I will stand so close to you, that when you open your mouth to speak, I will give you words; you shall not err.

24/26.24. Eawahtah inquired: What shall I say; how should I teach the sons and daughters of men; give me a synopsis?

24/26.25. Egoquim answered Eawahtah, saying:














827  i.e., the general mass of both unripe spirits in the intermediate world (atmosphereans) and unripe mortals































828  i.e., unusually harsh, fierce, cruel, and dire


































































829  i.e., in the surf

24/27.23. Which is the seventh Egoquim law.

24/27.24. You shall restore the rites and ceremonies of Choe‑pan and Annubia‑pan; |832| except you shall not flatten the head to make a seer, a Haonga, to drive the judgment of the brain away to the prophetic regions; and this procedure you shall swear to Me to never restore.

24/27.25. Teaching these things to your children, and to their children after them, forever!

24/27.26. Which is the eighth Egoquim law. |833|

24/27.27. Then Eawahtah, Son of Egoquim, rose up, saying: I am Your servant! Lead me, for I am going in Your name, even to the end of the world! |834|

831  provoke or agitate to anger, wear her down (irk), disturb to displeasure, try her patience, etc.








832  Most likely the rites referred to were similar to Port‑pan and Anubis [shown later in Oahspe]. The word Annubia is known among some of the western tribes. The pipe of peace is known to all of them. And this was part of the Egyptian ceremonies also. --Ed.

833  These people lived and practiced this religion when the Christians came to inhabit it. They welcomed the Christians and fed them, and divided their substance with them. Their corn‑fields spread over all the present northwestern states [now called the Midwest]. They had state organizations, and their united states were called after the name of the Great Spirit, Agoquim, or, as improperly called, Algonquin. But because of their religion, the Christians raised the cry of "heathen," and fell upon them, and killed them, men, women and children, three millions of them! Destroyed their corn‑fields, and said they were too lazy to work! --Ed.

24/27.28. When Eawahtah, Son of the Great Spirit, thus spoke, a Light came over him, dazzling, brilliant, lighting the way, showing him the way.

24/27.29. And the spirit upon Eawahtah was so powerful, that when he came to the river, he rose up like an angel and sailed over, landing safely on the other side. |835|

24/27.30. Nor did he know where he was going; did not know the places of the scattered, destroyed peoples.

24/27.31. And the angels of Egoquim went before him; went into the forests and valleys, calling to the souls of the suffering, starving, and dying, saying to them in their despair:

24/27.32. Egoquim, the Mighty, is coming! His Son! Behold Him! He holds the keys of Yaton'te, the heavenly hunting ground. Come forth from your hiding! Come forth, O My beloved! It is your Heavenly Father calling.

24/27.33. And the women heard! The little children, with sore, bleeding feet, heard! The proud, brave men listened! They said: Why do we fight? Why do we destroy? It was a wicked God! He called himself the Savior---the wicked monster, I'tura!

24/27.34. Then came Eawahtah; came first to the kingdom of Took‑shein, and to his queen, Che‑guh, in the land, Anagoomahaha, the flat‑heads. |836| Told them all the words of the Great Spirit, Egoquim.









835  I have myself seen persons floated and carried in the air by angel power. And there are now thousands of men and women who have seen the same things, knowing the possibility of all that is here related. --Ed.

24/27.35. Then spoke Took‑shein, saying: To me the Great Spirit has spoken; told me all the words as you have spoken. I know all you have said is true. Then spoke Che‑guh, saying: Gitchee, the Great Spirit, spoke to me. All your words are true, O Eawahtah. All the scattered tribes will be gathered together by you. There will be many tribes of the red man; Egoquim will be the center, the Mighty Spirit!

24/27.36. Then Eawahtah spoke, saying to his good host and hostess: Your place shall be the center; from your place I will shoot out in different directions, always returning, bringing in followers.

24/27.37. While they thus talked, a Light appeared above them. Look, said Took‑shein: It is the hand of Egoquim! Look, said Che‑guh: It is the Voice of Gitchee! Then Eawahtah, seeing more clearly, raised up expressly, |837| and said: It is a ship of fire coming down from heaven! I hear the voice of the angel of Egoquim, the Mighty!

24/27.38. Then Eawahtah went and stood between Took‑shein and Che‑guh, holding their hands, so the Voice of Egoquim could speak plainly; so he could hear.

24/27.39. And Egoquim spoke out of the ship of fire, saying:

24/27.40. Yes, My beloved! I am with you! Behold, My worlds are wide and many. When My back is turned, evil Gods come to steal My children; tell them lies to win them; tell them they are My Sons coming to save them!

24/27.41. Hard is the fate of those who worship one God only; |838| but they are Mine. I look around at times; I set the evil Gods flying. Be of strong heart, O My beloved! Many races will come and go on these lands. But the red man shall possess it; inhabit it far and near. Then another evil God [Christ was called an evil God by the Indians --Ed.] shall come, to flay and destroy My sons and daughters, to cover all the lands over with pure blood. Then I will come again and rout the evil God, and raise up My sons and daughters, full of glory.

24/27.42. I will bring their kindred (Faithists) from far across the water; a wise speaking people, who worship none born of woman; a people who do not war; who do not kill off weaker nations. |839| I will come in the Tenonachi, and the Hoochiquis [Mahican (Mohican) and Iroquois confederacies --ed.]; My hand shall reach around the earth in that day. |840| I will chase away all Gods and Saviors born of woman. And all men shall worship the Great Spirit only.

24/27.43. Go forth, My son; build wide My foundation; I will found My earthly kingdom in this land.

24/27.44. Then upward rose the ship of heaven; and Eawahtah buckled on his traveling slippers; said goodbye to Took‑shein; filled his pockets with the bread of Che‑guh; kissed her hand goodbye, and started forth.

24/27.45. For many years Eawahtah traveled, over all the regions of Guatama, teaching, gathering together, swearing the people to be forever firm to the Great Spirit; made them swear solemn oaths that never again would they listen to any God except the Creator; made them swear they would never be caught by another cunning Savior, like I'tura, whose people delight in war.

24/27.46. Eawahtah gathered the frightened tribes into villages, and taught them writing and engraving; taught them the secret name of the Great Spirit, Egoquim; and explained the moon to them and how to keep the seventh day for worship.

24/27.47. The Creator saw the great work of Eawahtah; saw the people gathered together in tens of thousands of places. Then the Creator spoke to Eawahtah, saying:

24/27.48. You shall found forty mighty nations, O My Son; and every nation shall be an independent nation; but all the nations shall be united into a brotherhood of nations, as one mighty people, and that one shall be called O-pah-E-go-quim, |841| signifying One. For when I come in kosmon, My people shall have many states, like yours, and their combination shall be called Union, signifying One. Build a model for them, O Eawahtah. For, although when they come they will overthrow your people on the earth, the angels of your holy ones (Native American spirits firm in adherence and obedience to the Great Spirit Jehovih) shall come and purge them of their Savior, and make them clean in My sight.

24/27.49. Then Eawahtah made the nations; united them into one mighty people, and called them the nations of Opahegoquim. And they planted the country over with cornfields, and dwelt in peace.

839  This refers to the early Faithist emigrants in aggregate and who essentially were the descendents of the seed of Ham, and who generally were Faithist in heart---although not necessarily in all aspects. Accordingly, these new arrivals included but were not limited to the pilgrims who worshipped God (but not Christ), Quakers, Masons, Jews, and others of similar nature who were brought to America in the early days, including from Africa.

840  This began around 1450 and lasted to about 1850 c.e., when the four heads of the beast were cast out of heaven. From then till the time of this editing [c.150 ak], on earth the beast struggled on; but without a unified heavenly head, it shall ultimately whither away upon the earth as man grows into his birthright.




















841  The union of Indian states was first called as stated, but after it became an Anglicized word it was called Algonquin. --Ed. [That is, Egoquim eventually became Agoquim, which, when the Native American said it, to the European ear it sounded like Algonquin, and it was spoken so and written so in the English language.]



CHAPTER 28 First Book God





24/28.1. God said: Be wise, O man, in the words of your God. My records do not come up out of the ground, nor from the books of mortals.

24/28.2. I open my heavenly libraries, and find my living sons and daughters who once trod |842| the earth.

24/28.3. Their light I recast down again to mortals in a stream of fire, and lo, my words are rewritten (translated, formed into corporeal words).

24/28.4. Search for the evidence of my footsteps on the earth; find the people who stand by the Creator, the All One, God of All! Who can shake their faith, or feed them with your story of a Savior born of woman?

24/28.5. Listen to the voice of the millions of Chine'ya and Vind'yu, and the remnants of the Algonquins! Their bibles are a power to this day. Their people are appalled at the work of your bloody sword.

24/28.6. They will not fall down and worship as you decree; they know that Jehovih is mightier than you.

24/28.7. Be considerate of all the races of men, and their doctrines, rites and ceremonies.

24/28.8. Behold, I raise up the nations of the earth in my own way. According to the times and conditions of mortals, so do I administer to them from my heavenly kingdoms.

24/28.9. You have tried to convert all my people, but have failed utterly. Behold, I come now with a new book; and they will accept it from my hand.

24/28.10. I prophesy this to you, beforehand, so that you shall witness in time to come, that I, God of heaven and earth, have spoken.

24/28.11. Nor shall you say: Man of himself progresses; and that such and such would come of a natural order.

24/28.12. I say to you, man does not progress, except by me, through my angel hosts in heaven.

24/28.13. In testimony of which, I have left many peoples before you, for hundreds of years. Your natural order is laziness and uncleanness. When you are quickened in spirit, behold, it is the heavens upon you that stirs you up. |843|

24/28.14. You shall not mistake the teaching of your God; which was manifested the same in the ancient days as in this day, which is: to worship your Creator only; to not bow down to any other God or Lord; to love your neighbor, and to do good to others with all your wisdom and strength, having faith in the Almighty!

843  Recall the sentiment: Progress comes of a natural order (24/28.11). This is the claim of many philosophers, especially the Evolutionists. For theories of natural selection, evolution, survival of the fittest, and enlightened self-interest, exampled in works such as Adam Smith's 1776 Wealth of Nations and Darwin's 1859 On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection, were, and are, taken as substantiating the notion that progress is the natural order of life.

While that may seem to hold true for the animal and plant creation and other biological organisms, yet were man to solely follow that, he would not progress but devolve into ever worsening animal behavior.

Fortunately man has a Higher Cause as well, and this Higher Cause inspires him to progress.

But the materialist or Osirian denies any cause of progress except what man himself generates or "invents." Thus, he allows for some combination of psychological causes, social causes, and natural causes, as in biological and environmental causes, based on the "laws" of physics or other constants in the universe. And the actions of these, he would assert, bring about necessity, which is then looked upon as a "mother" of invention; or, "nature" shows example, which man then exploits.



So he attributes all progress to man's ingenuity, or else to dumb luck. But, according to the Osirian, even if the triggering event were accidental (by chance, random), yet it was man alone, not some supposed Creator or God, responsible for useful explanation or application.

Hence, in general:

Materialists, at best, define progress as a subjective judgment; and to the extent that they acknowledge the concept of progress, they attribute the source either to the natural course of events (scientific cause and effect), or else to man's intelligence taking advantage of and building upon chance occurrences (resulting in, e.g., inventions and innovations); thus making "progress" possible.

Idolaters, to the extent that they believe in progress, attribute the source to their idol, perhaps through his underlings (angels, saints, avatars, etc.).

Faithists understand that progress comes from Jehovih the Great Spirit, including through His kingdoms, officers and hosts, the least of which is individual initiative and effort inspired by the light of Jehovih; and progress increases in effectiveness as compact (organic unity) is achieved, and grows as greater compact is reached.
