Summary: Dedrah lived on the mortal world of Terralee, being
described as a ‘believer and follower of God’ (4:20:33). She became close friends
with the twenty-four-year-old Megordoc around the time when he had passed the bar
to become a lawyer. It was Dedrah who gave to him the Book of God, which contained
the teachings of the previous dispensational leaders: Adamilus and Evelah, Noaeya,
and Sariah. The book, along with Dedrah’s company, had a profound impact on Megordoc,
as he had been raised in a very secular home environment, expected by his wealthy
parents to become a successful lawyer.
When it was discovered that Megordoc had become a believer in God and was no longer
interested in pursuing a legal career, his parents sued him for all expenses paid
toward his lodging and education, believing they could persuade their son to return
to the path they had set out for him. Unable to pay his parents, Megordoc was sent
to prison and subjected to weekly attempts by preachers of prosperity to sway him
back to the paradigm of his parents. Seeing after three years that Megordoc would
not be moved in his beliefs and passion for God, the parents relented, disavowing
him as a son, yet setting him free. Once released from prison, Megordoc re-united
with Dedrah and was warmly welcomed into her family and the community of believers,
who gave to Megordoc a new name: Moshe (4:20:47-50).
Moshe and Dedrah were soon happily married and starting a family together. Moshe
became a writer of commentaries and a teacher of godly things (4:20:57). He was eventually
elected to become the Presiding Patriarch of the Solemn Assembly of Believers, and
identified as the fourth dispensational leader on the world of Terralee. The relationship
of Moshe and Dedrah is considered a vibrant and lasting example of love and grace
See: 4th Endowment ch. 20-22
And Moshe loved Dedrah the keeper of the honeybee, and in the spring of the year
were they married before the altar of God midst great rejoicing and jubilation, to
dance themselves midst gentle rhythms beneath the shining moon.
4th Endowment 20:51
Now the years passed and Moshe and Dedrah brought forth children of their own, to
cast themselves ever deeper into love’s embrace; and all which saw did see in Moshe
and Dedrah the way which they might likewise be.
4th Endowment 20:56
In what place then shall you find a good example, to see for yourself the power of
grace and love together mingled, like lovers in a dance? Go then and in the scriptures
Have you not read of Kronus and Yoshibeth? Have you not read of Moshe and Dedrah,
or of Abbahdon and Gaia, or even of The One and myself together in love forever?
Go then and let this prove a good example worthy of imitation; for in life is it
given that the child should imitate the parents, to follow in their steps.
