Azrael’s Commentary — Ahman
More of a title than a name, in the Celestial Kingdom the title Ahman more accurately
applies to both the presiding Heavenly Father and the presiding Heavenly Mother together.
At the head of each of the Seven Councils of Light, there is appointed by election
and ordination the Ahman of that particular council.
In the scriptures, the title of Ahman is used as a name to designate the presiding
Heavenly Father of the Council of Elohim. This is done solely for the convenience
of the reader of the scriptures. Heaven does not consider this a slight to the Heavenly
Mother, and those who think it appropriate to be offended on behalf of the presiding
Heavenly Mother are more likely to offend her than the author of the scriptures.
The title of Ahman is often used in conjunction with the phrase: The Father of All.
But because the title of Ahman actually includes both a Heavenly Father and a Heavenly
Mother, the word Ahman can also be used to refer to: The Mother of All.
In the phrase: The Father of All, the All refers to every Lord and God of Elohim,
every ministering angel, cherub and seraph of the Celestial Kingdom. The phrase also
includes all those children of God who have chosen to dwell in the Telestial and
Terrestrial Kingdoms created by the Elohim.
Thus was there caused to gather the heavenly hosts in splendor exceeding; and there
shined out from around the throne of Ahman the Kerrillean light of Xanthis which
like a jewel sat as a diadem upon the brow of Galendriel, the Mother of All.
And there fell upon the congregations of Heaven a deep stillness, and a mighty hush
did fall upon the whole earth, for Ahman did rise forth in all his majesty to speak,
and there stood beside him in stately array, Galendriel the Beautiful, dressed in
robes of purest white trimmed in silver; and upon her bodice was there placed an
ephod of blue sapphire, and upon her head was there also a blue and shimmering telephim.
1st Endowment 8:4
9. But in the kingdom of God did the Elohim gather round about the throne of the
great Father and Mother of All, and Ahman spoke unto the hosts of Heaven, saying:
10. “Consider, you Lords and Gods of Elohim, and know this thing for yourselves,
for the shadow of great tribulation do I perceive.
11. For there has leaped forth out of the Abyss some dark and terrible thing, even
the Father of Evil has obscurity and dimness brought out of the womb of matter unformed.”
12. And the hosts of Heaven, when they heard this, grew silent; and there rose to
stand before the council, the great Mother of All, and she spoke, saying:
13. “Give not your soul to trouble because of this thing, neither let perplexities
rise within you. For there is nothing which, once revealed, is able to hide away
its heart from before us.”
[Excerpt from the Personal Testimony of Azrael Ondi-Ahman]
[...] Again I spoke to God, saying: “Heavenly Father, in my soul I am filled with
questions. Yet above them all is this one most needful. If you then be both God and
Father unto the children of men, have we not a Heavenly Mother also?”
And in that moment God smiled upon me, and immediately there fell from Heaven another
great light, and in the light did I see descending a woman of such matchless beauty,
such comely form, that I was speechless before her. And she was clothed in robes
of purest white, and there was upon her head a telephim trimmed in gold. And she
came and stood beside the Father, and casting down upon me a gentle gaze, she said:
“Greetings, fair son, from me to thee.”
And God the Father spoke to me again, saying: “Behold my own Beloved, even the Heavenly
Mother; and know this thing for yourself; for even as you see before you the Heavenly
Father and Heavenly Mother, yet are we together made but one God unto the children
of men. For even as a man and a woman are made one flesh in marriage, even so are
we become as one God. Know then that whosoever shall pray unto the Father, even then
shall the Mother hear also. And whosoever shall pray unto the Mother, even unto that
child shall I attend with all gentle affection. For how shall you believe in the
Father and not the Mother also? For together are we made as one God forever unto
the children of men. [...]
