Occurrences: 32 (suns of - 28) (sun of - 1) (stars of - 2) (Son of - 1) First
Who, formerly, made brighter still the celestial worlds when yonder suns of Ashengaard
gave forth from their own brightness a constant ray, and to the Kokobeam lent forth
the luminous realms of their own dominions.
While the suns of Ashengaard were ultimately brought forth to increase the glory
of the Celestial Kingdom, it was The One’s intent for the new stars to serve as a
provocative agent. The One deemed it necessary to identify those of the Elohim whose
pride would lead them to act against their quorum, causing them to unknowingly become
an aid to the Nemesis (5:4:41-52). The suns of Ashengaard proved the catalyst behind
the rebellion of Shaemdiel, former Chief Archon of the Council of Elohim.
According to scripture, five of the twelve suns of Ashengaard were eventually added
to the seven established suns of the Celestial Kingdom, known as the suns of Kolob(5:4:58-60). The remaining seven suns of Ashengaard were given to the Ahgendai, to
be utilized in the creation of their kingdom (5:11:56).
Scripture includes a single, curious reference to Michael, the Chief Archon of Elohim,
which identifies him as the “Fairest Son of Ashengaard” (E:8:28).
[Prior to the 5th Endowment, the suns of Ashengaard are mentioned only five times.]
Twelve new suns for the glory of Heaven
“Behold, my Dear, how that in the Celestial Kingdom of Glory there are given but
seven great suns; and around these do the celestial worlds move in glory and splendor.
Let us therefore, both you and I together, fashion for the Celestial Kingdom, twelve
new suns of resplendent glory; being made themselves as brightly blue and ever burning
super stars, which stars we shall call the suns of Ashengaard; for since the birth
of the Celestial Kingdom have there been no new suns added.
These suns shall we place in the vastness of the great Chasm nearest to the world
of Jeruel, causing that the very Elohim should take great council regarding them.
Then shall we but wait and see if there be those Gods who would act alone among themselves
in moving the suns of Ashengaard, to bring them ever closer to the suns of Kolob.
For if such Gods should deign to act, to presume among themselves the desires of
the Elohim, then shall we find among such Gods those who would aid the Nemesis of
God; believing all the while that they act rightly and not amiss, being themselves
blinded by a willful pride.”
5th Endowment 4:48-52
...for I see already a need for such suns as we shall make. For I would add to Kolob
but five new suns, which suns shall place within this Heaven, twelve suns altogether.
But of those seven which shall remain, even these shall we give to the Ahgendai,
whereby they might create for themselves a kingdom of their own; permitting that
generations of the Ahgendai might find room sufficient to grow and prosper in a realm
of their own designing.
Thus shall this Heaven be joined through the suns of Ashengaard with the Heaven of
the Ahgendai, to work together hand in hand throughout the generations of eternity...
5th Endowment 4:58-60
Heaven reacts to the suddenly appearance of twelve new stars
Now in the kingdom of God was there a great commotion, for there appeared in the
night sky, twelve stars together clustered, twinkling in their blue brightness with
a wondrous and fiery glee.
And all the Gods took notice and wondered at the mystery. And Ahman spoke to Galendriel,
saying: “Behold, my Love, the suns of Ashengaard have come upon us. For this I discerned
through the whispering of the Tael.
For it is certain that the God beyond us all, would increase forever the glories
of the Heavens; to bring forth something new and filled with expectation. Let us
then gather from afar, the councils and quorums of Elohim, that we may decide rightly
what we must do regarding them.”
5th Endowment 4:65-67
Seeing then the gathering of the seven houses, Ahman rose up to speak; and standing
upon the porch of the temple, he spoke to the assembly, saying: “To you, O children
of Light, give forth an eager heart, and be you filled with holy expectation.
For you have seen for yourselves the glory of yonder stars, which even now do sparkle
forth from out of the Chasm, to fill us all with wonder.
What then shall we do regarding them? For it is certain already that such wonders
which we do see came not from ourselves, neither did the Lords and Gods above us
bring them forth. For these twelve suns which you see came forth through the working
of that One from which even all these Heavens did come forth in the distant long
Hear then you children of glory: What then shall we make of so great a wonder as
these twelve stars present? For what intent were they brought forth? For whose benefit
were they shaped and fashioned, and in the deep starry night made to sparkle before
What then shall we make of this mystery? For in searching through the Tael have we
only this received: that such stars as even now do appear, to twinkle in the night,
even these are called of God, the suns of Ashengaard, and beyond this is there only
silence filled with expectations.
Let us therefore determine for ourselves that good and happy course which we would
take together, regarding this gift which The One and Areta would give for the benefit
of all the Heavens together; for it is certain that the God beyond us all would add
increase and glory to all our realms.
Decide therefore, what we the Elohim should rightly do; that in each house of this
our glory, the quorums of God might act as one in all holiness and joy; being each
to each bound by love and gentle wisdom whereby we might serve well this Heaven which
5th Endowment 5:3-9
Elohim agrees to move five suns into the realms of Kolob
Now it so happened that as Shaemdiel and his sons together did open wide the portals
of the seventh dimension, the Elohim had resolved most firmly to move into the regions
of Kolob, five of the twelve suns of Ashengaard; having themselves reached a happy
and pleasing consensus.
But it was the counsel of Ahman and Galendriel together that of the twelve suns,
seven should remain within the Chasm as God had placed them; permitting that The
One and Areta might do as they thought best regarding them. Thus would the Elohim
show forth their gratitude for such gifts as God would give.
5th Endowment 5:66-67
Seven remaining suns given to the Ahgendai
For even now would I give to you the seven suns of Ashengaard; and round these seven
shall you build the heights and depths and breadth of your domain, to be for you
forever after, a kingdom of your own.
5th Endowment 11:56
One of the seven suns is moved into the regions of the new kingdom
Thus as Mahaleenah busied herself among the seven Mothers, even then did Azraella
go forth unto the suns of Ashengaard and there did he call forth a single sun of
great splendor, and by the speaking of the word did he cause it to move into the
regions where the Daughter labored among the Azurgai.
5th Endowment 12:9
The six remaining suns are used to stabilize the vortex
For the Azraella had taken to himself the six remaining suns of Ashengaard, which
suns were created by The One and Areta, being in their magnificence as massive blue
giants which would forever shine; each sun being made to dwell equidistant from each
other within the vortex.
