The Archons of God are quick to love, being themselves the creators of Heaven’s glory;
being themselves repulsed by needless death, destruction and war. Ever choosing for
themselves the things of greatest worth and beauty; being themselves filled with
holiness and gentleness graced by a good and happy humor.
Summary: An Archon is an Arch-Angel. All Archons are Gods. They are the greatest,
most powerful, most glorified citizens of the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven. The term
Archon is masculine and denotes a father Arch-Angel, while the Adamic word “Aretakai”
is feminine, and is used to denote a mother Arch-Angel. In the Song of God, use of
the term Archon is not always gender specific, and often refers to both the Gods
and Goddesses of Heaven.
Various false Gnostic cosmologies portray Archons as being representatives of evil,
rulers that serve the Demiurge and strive to keep divine souls ensnared in the material
world. This model should not be confused with the cosmology presented in the Song
of God, as it is a distortion of gnosis and misrepresents the true nature and agenda
of the Archons. To quote from the Basic Beliefs of the True Gnostic:
“True Gnostics should not be confused with the false Gnostics of ages past, as represented
by the codices and tractates discovered at Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1945. Neither are
we representative of those Gnostics which early church fathers argued against in
their efforts to establish a single church orthodoxy with its attendant ecclesiastical
The most exalted Archons of the celestial Council of Elohim are members of the House
of Archons. Patriarchal in function, the House of Archons represents the supreme
will of The One. While the Father Ahman (Noeiel) presides over the House of Archons,
there are seven positions filled by the highest ranking Archons of the Elohim. Foremost
among these seven captains or mighty ones (B:22:4; W:2:38) is the Chief Archon, who
is nearest to Ahman in power and authority. The seven captains of the House of Archons
are responsible for initiating and presiding over the seven dispensations established
upon this world. All dispensational leaders are incarnated Arch-Angels.
Consider now the greatest of all the citizens of eternity, even the Arch-Angels of
Elohim; these are they who possess unto their glory celestial bodies of flesh and
bone, being unlike the natural man, having taken unto themselves a fullness of beauty
and light exceeding.
Likewise, when the dispensations of God which are given unto the children of men
upon the earth are completed, there shall be prepared for this Emmanuel a celestial
tabernacle like unto my own. And he shall be nurtured in the bosom of eternity, and
even as his Father is, so shall he become an Arch-Angel of the Most High God.
Behold, the Arch-Angels of God give birth to Gods, for surely they are Gods; and
from innumerable spirits which are organized do the souls of the Gods come. But unto
which of many spirits shall the glory of godliness be given?
Therefore, was a way prepared whereby the most noble of all spirits should be made
manifest, and that they should progress throughout all the generations of eternity,
until they should become even as Emmanuel, and when the aeons of their probation
are accomplished, when they have completed the way which is set before them, then
shall they be born unto their Heavenly Father and Mother, and in the bosom of their
For behold, the creations of God are without end and none know the beginning from
the end thereof. For in the beginning was I like unto man, and even as I am now,
might all become if it so be that they shall be holy and follow the Lord their God
and him only serve.
And Michael spoke again, saying: “Consider then how that the Arch-Angel is the source
from which all things of spirit and soul have their beginning, for the Arch-Angel
is in every deed a Father, and from him do these things have their beginning.
And all worlds whereupon the children of men might dwell have they decreed and set
in their orbits, that they might travel in their course around the suns which were
ordained unto them.
Therefore, for this reason has the Father of All, even Ahman, ordained unto the sons
of his lineage, even Arch-Angels, the Law of Dispensation and the administration
thereof, that even God might establish tabernacles wherein the spirits of many might
dwell. Thus is the way set forth wherein the Heavenly Father might exalt many by
reason of those words which he spoke unto the children of men when he came to dwell
Therefore, over all the worlds of creation whereunto the children of men are made
to dwell, has God ordained unto each seven dispensations, and over each has he set
his Arch-Angels, that they might bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of
And God ordained that the eldest among the Arch-Angels should preside in all righteousness
over all the dispensations which are established.
Consider how great this mystery is: that over each dispensation an Arch-Angel is
given power and authority, that he might bring about the great designs of God. That
when they should again enter mortality, they might teach unto all who are able great
knowledge, even the knowledge of God.
Behold the House of the Archons, over which shall preside even the very King of Heaven,
even Ahman, the Father of All; and on his right hand shall stand the Ancient of Days
even Michael, who shall stand forth as Chief Archon before all the great and mighty.
