First Man


Occurrences:  54 / 2 (Adam)

First Reference:  Beginnings 5:31


And before the children of men did Adam and Eve ascend into Heaven. Thus was the dispensation of First Man wrought by the Ancient of Days and his Beloved. And in dreams and songs did it spread over all the inhabitants of the earth.



See:  First Cosmos, First Power, First Soul, First Track, First Woman, First World, Five Radical Propositions


Summary:  The phrase ‘First Man’ can be understood in two ways. In the Song of God, the first two occurrences of the phrase refer to Father Adam (B:5:31; B:6:17), the mortal manifestation of the Arch-Angel, Michael, who descended to earth with his Beloved (Sher-el) to live among clans of native Homo-sapiens (c. 12,775 BCE). This interpretation establishes a distinction between the native humans that evolved on earth (Enoshahim), and the more advanced human form represented by Adam, the Ancient of Days (B:1:7-8). (See also: Adaam). According to this interpretation, it is appropriate to consider Adam (or the Adamilus) as the First Man.


The phrase ‘First Man’ is more commonly used to designate the original human species from which the epiphenomenon of soul first occurred. This original population of Homo sapiens evolved in an alternate timeline (see First Track) of the First Cosmos, on a rare planet referred to in scripture as the “world of the First Power”, or the “world of First Man.” All life that evolved in the First Cosmos preceded the existence of God, but arose from the intentions of the primordial, feminine Consciousness known as Areta. It was from this original human species, referred to as First Man, that First God evolved (see: Five Radical Propositions; First World).


First Man became advanced in many ways, yet despite their knowledge and intelligence they had no understanding of good and evil. Life for First Man was a violent and constant struggle for power and survival. It was a dark and vicious environment, yet amidst this woeful existence was born a unique man who came to be known as Kronus Maximillius. Kronus miraculously transcended the confines of physical death, being the first to create for himself an immortal soul (see 3rd Endowment).


The population of First Man eventually destroyed itself, along with their planet, due to repercussions of a flawed weapons test (3:31:54-61; 1:9:1-21). Helpless in his incorporeal state, the soul of Kronus observed in sorrow as the last of his kind fell into extinction. The soul of Kronus eventually united with the feminine Universal Consciousness referred to as Areta. Together, as First God, they pledged to determine a way to go back in time and save First Man, to redeem the world of the First Power, and provide a means whereby evolutionary humans could engender soul and break the chains of death.


And in an age both far and distant, we shall come again to yonder world, and by such powers as we shall increase between ourselves, we shall find some means to save this cruel but broken world.

For in our love for each the other shall time itself yield; causing that in some distant morrow, we might yet reclaim the world of First Man; to create in them such soul as they permit, being fashioned through some gentler yearning which would itself break in pieces the chains of death and darkness.”

3rd Endowment 32:31-32


Seeing therefore the passing away of all my beginning, even I did continue on, being the only one of my kind; and I did resolve most firmly within that in the day of my power I would return again unto my own, and by some subtle design set forth the hand to redeem the whole of First Man.

1st Endowment 10:8


The redemption of First Man is a major theme throughout the Song of God, providing the underlying context for much of the scripture’s narrative. The significance of the subject becomes apparent when it is revealed how this very earth, our Earth, is the world of the First Power, with our present timeline existing as a replication of the original timeline (First Track), which ended in mass extinction. According to scripture, God and a host of spirit children traveled back in time to establish dispensations and incarnate on the world of the First Power to redeem First Man from folly and destruction.


Consider, therefore, the purposes of those dispensations which I shall set forth in yonder world, for unto the angels have I ordained the seven dispensations whereby we might establish in the world of First Man the notion of heavenly things, whereby all those who dwell there upon might take unto themselves a knowledge of God, that by their efforts in reaching forth, they might create for themselves some beginning of endless soul.

1st Endowment 8:9


The first dispensation was initiated by Michael and Sher-el, who entered mortality in physical form as Adam and Eve to teach and uplift the native humans that evolved here on earth (c. 12,775 BCE; see AZC — Adamic Council; B:6:1). According to scripture, the dispensations have had a positive impact on the world of First Man when compared to the original timeline, i.e., the First Track (1:9:3-45). According to the author of the scriptures, the completion of the Song of God marks the advent of the sixth dispensation.

Thus came forth unto the prophet, Cain the son of First Man, even he who slew his brother to get gain. And Cain spoke unto Enoch, saying:

Beginnings 6:17


For we know rightly that in the first movement of yonder world did the children of men take no thought concerning the things of God;

For in that time were the children of men without spirit, being intelligent beasts filled with lustful cunning, seeking only the means by which they might gain power over their fellow beings.

1st Endowment 2:13-14


50. Thus in the world did there evolve the children of men; being most cunning and smart above all other creatures; possessing in themselves a brutal cleverness which caused that man should subdue the whole earth unto themselves.

51. Making subject unto their will the creatures which moved upon the face of the land, and the birds which flew in the airs above, and the fish which swam about; bending through cruel and forceful means all living things.

52. Yet for all the cleverness of man; despite the genius of their thought, or the ingenuity of their ways, still were they unable to see beyond themselves; for they were born without any spirit to guide them, or any soul which would lead them out of darkness.

53. Being brought forth into their life both separate and alone; for in the first days of yonder world was there neither God nor Goddess, but man only; possessing in themselves no concept of good or evil; neither understood they right from wrong.

54. For they sought only the solace of power and dominion, whereby they might achieve some greater gain for themselves; to make subject unto the man of power, every other man whereby they might rule harshly over them.

3rd Endowment 1:50-54


26. For I, alone, am Eternal One, above whom there is no greater found; yet in that beginning beyond all beginnings have I a memory recollected.

27. Thus it was that in a time beyond all your yesterdays was there found neither God nor Goddess but Man only; and in the world of the First Creation was he brought forth in darkness, knowing only what the senses of the body would permit.

28. Among the spirit children of many Gods is this word not given, have you yourself not also heard: how that God was once a man, to evolve himself from less to greater?

29. So it was that in a time before forever, even I, as a man on the First World did dwell; being the first to make for himself a living soul which the darkening shade had no power to touch or put out again.

30. But still did all of man in the First World perish long ago, being consumed by a multitude of folly; yet notwithstanding these things, in such a memory as I have found have all which died come alive in me again.

31. Yet in that beginning beyond beginning did First Man dwindle away into death because of foolishness, for although his knowledge was great and ever reaching, yet of wisdom did he possess but little.

32. For of wisdom was First Man unable to lay hold seeing that unto him was no knowledge given of good or evil, being in himself uncreated of God, being without soul and having no means of bringing it forth.

33. But seeing now that in the mind of The One, First Man is made to come alive again, I have resolved to set forth the means whereby all who are willing might fashion unto themselves a living soul.

34. Thus shall I redeem First Man from the folly of all his ways, to rescue him from endless death; that from the world of the First Power might many come forth unhindered into the presence of The One.

35. Consider deeply then the mystery within, for if I reach back to redeem First Man, to make in many a living soul; how great then shall the kingdom of God become, seeing that in the beginning from one only, came forth the fullness of Heaven’s glory?

Enlightenment 5:26-35


Thus did the Azraella lay before the Seven Councils of Light the desires and designs of The One and Areta together; and in the hearing did all marvel, to see therein a power and redemption far greater than before; for in the world of First Man would the dispensations of God work a mighty wonder in bringing about the advent of First Soul.

For among First Man would all those who should reflect the love and wisdom of God through the working of the dispensations of God, even would these then, whether man or woman, lay for themselves the foundations of endless soul; to become themselves in time as the ministering angels of the Ahgendai, to dwell forever upon the seven moons of Mahaliel;

Becoming themselves redeemed from that dark oblivion when the world of First Man did destroy itself because of hate; becoming instead as those immortal and everlasting, to dwell forever in joy among the very Gods of Heaven; possessing to themselves the fulfillment of all their dreams.

6th Endowment 13:51-53


1.  And within the light did the greater Light shine, and from the inward glory did the greatest glory move through endless majesty; and there came from the light the voice of The One, saying:

2. “It has begun, this knowledge of good and evil in the world far beyond; upon the seed of my beginning have I cast the shadow of my likeness, to give life in place of death, to establish in the void of man the seed of endless life.

3. For I shall call from the measurable the immeasurable, I shall draw from the bounded the boundless and eternal; and the finite shall give birth to the infinite, and the mortal shall give way to immortality, and this in the heart and mind of man. [...]

6. For, behold, all things shall I make new again, for I shall establish a new Heaven and a new earth, and this through the rolling forth of the dispensations which I have appointed; that there might be set before the eyes of man the only sure hope of immortality and eternal life.

7. And that world which first gave rise to me shall I redeem through continual replication, even until there shall ascend unto me a multitude of souls, which souls shall first find birth deep in the heart of man.
