Summary:  Kronus Maximillius was a man who lived during the original timeline (First Track) of the world of the First Power. He was the son of Seti-Kahn (3:3:40-57), the Supreme Commander of the Drakonian military (3:2:51). His mother — having given her infant son the name ‘God’ (3:4:30) — was the mortal manifestation of the Universal Consciousness referred to as Areta. Observing the plight of humanity, and especially the dire conditions suffered by women, Areta descended into physical form with the hope of somehow saving the human species from destruction (3:3:1-37). Areta conceived and gave birth to a son, whom she raised in secret to protect him from the cruel traditions of Drakonian life. The mother and son spent nine years together before their discovery and subsequent separation. The son of Areta was sent to the military barracks of A’Kontay, while Areta was punished for hiding her son away, being branded and sterilized, and made to serve in the whorehouses of the city. Years later, the two reunited a single time before Areta’s passing (3rd Endowment 13 — 14).


It wasn’t until the son of Areta was a third-year senior at the Academy of A’Kontay that he was given the name “Kronus Maximillius”, by the Emperor of Drakonia (3:2:43; 3:12:40). As a young man, Kronus proved himself an invaluable military asset to the empire. While many saw in Kronus an advantage for themselves, others — namely his father, Seti-Kahn, and the Regent of the Empire — were constantly plotting against him.


Around the age of 23, Kronus was given a vast estate by the Emperor, and a host of fifty women with which to do as he pleased. Kronus came to love one of the young women, whom he eventually gave the name ‘Yoshibeth’. The two became inseparable. Together, Kronus and Yoshibeth created a school to uplift and empower the women of his House. The schooling system was a radical and dangerous deviation from Drakonian custom and law, yet Kronus’ cunning and influence initiated a social revolution throughout the empire, and the tradition of oppression and slavery of women began to crumble.


Compared to others, Kronus was a peculiar man — brilliant and driven by the wisdom teachings instilled at a young age by his mother. He was a military genius, a revolutionary, and presumably the first human to create and nurture a loving, self-surrendering relationship with another human. These anomalous factors likely played a role in one of the greatest, most miraculous events of all, as Kronus became the first human to engender soul, allowing aspects of his personality and memory to remain intact after his physical death.


Within the theological framework of the scriptures, Kronus represents the dawn of human immortality and the birth of God. Eventually uniting with an immortal manifestation of Areta, the soul of Kronus became the masculine aspect of First God, commonly referred to in scripture as The One (3:32:1-46).



Birth and Childhood  (age 0 — 9)

After being discovered, beaten and branded by the guards of A’Kontay, Areta (the mother of Kronus) was taken to the bedchamber of Seti-Kahn, where she was raped and beaten throughout the night (3:3:40-56). Areta conceived and gave birth to a son to whom she gave the name ‘God’, which in the language of Areta meant “Noble One” (3:4:30). From the onset, Areta raised her son contrary to the laws and customs of Drakonia. When others saw her breastfeeding the infant, they assumed the child was a girl, for it was lawfully forbidden that any mother should breastfeed their son, as it was believed that doing so would pass to the son the weakness of the mother (3:4:19-28). Areta also refrained from feeding her son the blood and flesh of men, which was customary in Drakonia (3:4:29).


When her son was three years old, Areta was given the right to establish her own private chambers. She was fortunate to discover a secret passage which led to spacious room in the attic of the house. It was there that Areta established a bright and happy space where she her son could live, being somewhat separated from the dark and violent ways of Drakonian life (3:4:31-47). Areta taught her son the ways of love and life, and the beginning of wisdom and virtue, instilling in him a deep respect for all women (3:4:43-47; 3:5:1-63; 3:6:6-58; 3:7:14-34). She also taught her son a Prayer of the Self, which would help to strengthen and guide him throughout his life (3:6:1-5). Areta raised her son in secret for several years, for it was customary that all children be taken away from their mothers at the age of seven — the boys would be sent to military school, and the girls taken to be cruelly circumcised and made to serve the lusts of men in the House of Seti-Kahn or sold as slaves throughout the land to the highest bidder (3:4:15-18).


When the son of Areta was nine years old, he and his mother were betrayed by another woman who was jealous of Areta and sought some means to take her position in the House of Seti-Kahn (3:7:35-36). Spying on Areta, the woman discovered the secret living chambers, and that Areta not only had a child (whom was thought to have passed away years before), but that the child was a boy, hidden away from those who would take him (3:7:38-42). The woman informed the chief steward and the next morning Areta and her son were set upon by guards of the Praetorium and taken to the public court to be condemned by the law. When the son of Areta heard the screams of his mother, he tore loose from his captors and viciously attacked the guards holding his mother. All were surprised at the ferocity of the boy, who was identified by the chief steward as the son of Seti-Kahn (3:7:43-58). Areta was beaten, circumcised, branded, and cast out to serve in the whorehouses of the city. Her son was taken to the military barracks of A’Kontay, in the city of Rio Cassalia (3:7:59).



Military Schooling    (age 9 — 20)

At nine years old, the son of Areta was taken to Rio Cassalia (modern-day New York), where he was entered into the Military Academy of A’Kontay. Being the son of Seti-Kahn, he was enrolled in the highest order of the academy reserved for sons of nobility (3:8:14-22). Academic studies included history, math, language, battle tactics, strategy, weaponry and psychology (3:8:23). Commanders at the academy were puzzled by the boy’s nature, as it was evident he had been influenced by the gentle ways of his mother, yet he had beaten into submission men of war and valor when coming to her defense. It was agreed by the commanders to break the gentle nature of the boy, to create in him a fearsome rage that would empower him as a mighty warrior for the empire (3:18:24-28). Thus, throughout the years, the boy was made to endure all kinds of cruel punishments, beatings and humiliations, in addition to increased academic duties. Despite the hardships continually pressed upon him, the son of Areta remained determined to excel in all his duties and bear with calm demeanor the harshness of his superiors.


Over the years, the son of Areta earned a grudging respect from both his peers and his commanders, for his will could not be broken and his academic achievements put him far above the standings of other cadets. In the boy’s fifth year at the Academy, Seti-Kahn began to inquire about his son, having been informed regarding his outstanding marks. After observing his son and speaking with the commanders appointed over him, Seti-Kahn grew fearful that his son would one day pose a threat to his position and power (3:8:45-53). This marked the beginning of Seti-Kahn’s efforts to sabotage his son’s success, even to the extent of plotting a way to have him legally put to death (3:8:54-60).


During his years in the Academy, the son of Areta earned the trust and regard of the other cadets, for they saw in him a certain confidence, strength and cunning that was unique (3:9:1-64; 3:10:1-61). The growing allegiance which formed around the son of Areta troubled the commanders of A’Kontay because it threatened their authority and traditions (3:11:1-7). In an attempt to damage the flourishing respect for the son of Areta, the commanders appointed the young cadet to lead the Academy’s team in a brutal and violent, empire-wide competition for the highly prized Standard of the Emperor. For never before had A’Kontay won the Emperor's Standard, and the commanders were confident the son of Areta would fail or perhaps be killed in the playing of the game (3:11:33-35). However, the young cadet solidified the trust of his peers and surprised his superiors when he led his team to victory in the playing of the Great Game. For the first time, the Academy of A'Kontay received the prestige and recognition that came with winning the Emperor’s Standard (3:11:36-53).


As a second-year senior, the son of Areta was once again appointed captain of A’Kontay’s team which would fight for victory in the Great Game. And again, A’Kontay won the Emperor’s Standard, which earned the son of Areta even deeper regard among his fellow cadets. Even the commanders appointed over him came to respect him, for at no time previous had any academy won the Emperor’s Standard twice (3:12:1-2). As a third-year senior, the son of Areta once again led the Academy’s team to victory — a most remarkable achievement spoken of by all throughout the land. The Emperor publicly honored the son of Areta by giving to him the signet ring from his own finger, as well as the name and rank of Kronus Maximillius, Imperial Tribune (3:12:25-41).


While many thought to align themselves with Kronus, others sought to destroy him. Both his father, Seti-Kahn, and the Regent, Maxus Drakoni, began to secretly conspire against Kronus in order to protect their own positions of power (3:12:43-64).



Mother and Son Reunite  (age 20 or 21)

In accordance with established custom, every graduating senior class from A’Kontay was made to complete one last test to prove their loyalty and worthiness in service to the empire (3:13:1-6). The Supreme Commander, Seti-Kahn, was responsible for establishing the final assignment. Knowing that Kronus loved his mother and would die before hurting her, Seti-Kahn announced the final ordeal: that “each senior cadet should kill his mother by slow strangulation, and that he should give her flesh as meat unto such guests as would attend the feasting of all graduating seniors” (3:13:4). While most were puzzled, seeing no challenge in the final test, the Emperor and those close to Kronus knew for whom the decree was created.


Before the graduation ceremony, Kronus traveled to the fortress of A’Kontay, for he learned his mother was being held captive in the dungeons there, having been imprisoned three years earlier by Seti-Kahn (3:13:30-40). It had been approximately twelve years since that day when the two had been brutally separated. Kronus found his mother and offered the only two options available to them: escape to the mountains and live in hiding, or together drink an elixir, causing them to drift peacefully into death (3:14:18-33). Areta would not consent to either plan, but instead, revealed to Kronus her true nature as the eternal Mother of Life, being in her soul beyond the touch of death and darkness (3:14:34-46). Imparting some final wisdom and encouraging Kronus to continue his efforts in doing good and noble things, Areta ascended, leaving behind her physical body and saving her son from the cunning of Seti-Kahn (3:14:47-66).



Early Military Service  (age 21 — 23)

Soon after graduating from the Academy, Kronus was assigned to lead 5,000 troops to defend the Fortress of Octavius against the seasoned Chen Commander, Ahgi Wynnaki, who had beseiged the northern territories with 100,000 warriors. Kronus' victory over the Chen earned him the trust and regard of those who served under him, as well as the Emperor himself. However, Seti-Kahn grew ever more fearful that his position as Chief Military Commander was threatened by his son (3:16:1 — 3:17:65).


After his victory in the north, Kronus was assigned by the Emperor to the Office of War and Strategy, to serve under the command of Seti-Kahn in an invasion against the Chen. For two year, Kronus was surrounded by senseless death and brutality resulting from the vicious strategies of his father. The deployment proved traumatic for Kronus. Upon his return to Drakonia, the Emperor made efforts to protect Kronus from the madness of the battefield, appointing him to the imperial staff where he could provide strategic counsel to the Office of War. The Emperor also granted Kronus a one-year leave from his military duties, and provided him with a vast estate and a host of fifty women (3:17:66 — 3:18:17).



Creation of a Woman's School  (age 23 — 30)

While Kronus proved himself a legendary military leader, his foremost goal was to fulfill the dreams of his mother, who sought only to defend, empower and liberate the weak and downtrodden, especially the women — who had fallen captive to a torturous, barbaric tradition of oppression and slavery. Kronus fell in love with one of the fifty women given to him by the Emperor. Contrary to Drakonian tradition, Kronus not only gave the woman a name (Yoshibeth), but treated all the women of his house with tenderness and respect.


With his beloved, Yoshibeth (3:18:28; 3:19:55-59; 3:20:14-20), Kronus became a champion of women’s rights in the Drakonian Empire. He educated and empowered the women of his house through an intense schooling system which he developed with Yoshibeth (3:18:17 — 3:23:36). The revolutionary system eventually garnered support from many of the empire’s highest ranking officials, including the Emperor (3:26:1-63). The success of Kronus’ schooling system gave rise to a momentous social reformation in the empire of Drakonia, however, there were many who remained loyal to the old traditions, and despised Kronus for his efforts (3:27:1-11).



The Love of Kronus and Yoshibeth

While Kronus led an extremely successful military career, his first and only love was Yoshibeth (3:30:7-25). When Kronus was forty years old, he and Yoshibeth publicly declared and celebrated their union as beloveds (3:30:26-48). Scripture implies their relationship was the first "tabernacle of peace" and the original expression of Emzahdeah, the sweet surrender (3:30:45). The love relationship between Kronus and Yoshibeth was likely the most significant factor facilitating the epiphenomenon of Kronus’ soul.


Chronology of Military Career, Events & Achievements

Kronus became known for breaking tradition in both military and civilian life. His tactics on the battlefield and unconventional military strategies were seen as either insubordinate or brilliant, and would often provoke concern from his superiors and the Emperor. Despite Kronus’ untraditional approach to military strategy, his success and loyalty eventually earned him the trust and regard of the Emperor, who saw in Kronus an advantage for himself and the empire. The following chronology lists significant achievements and events in the life of Kronus. (The glory of Kronus Maximillius — 3:21:7-15; 3:28:52-58; 3:30:1-9)

Death and Transcendence

At the age of forty-four, Kronus Maximillius — High Lord of the Imperial Realm, and Hero of the State — suffered a heart attack in the palace of the Emperor. He was taken swiftly to his own residence where, for three days, Kronus lingered between life and death. On the fourth day, Kronus asked for his Beloved Yoshibeth, and midst a final kiss, Kronus died (3:30:49-62).


Soon after the death of Kronus, the empire fell into great chaos and civil war. The Regent, Maxus Drakoni, having bought the secret police known as the Stazzi, initiated a violent coup and secretly ordered to have the Emperor killed in his sleep. Yoshibeth, the Beloved of Kronus, was arrested and brought before the new Emperor. She was violently raped to death by the Regent and his men. Her body was cut into pieces and fed to dogs (3:31:18-32).


After assuming the throne, the Regent rallied support from military leaders of the older generation who believed the empire had become weakened as a result of the social reforms brought about by Kronus. For two years the empire was engulfed in civil war. Those who were closest to Kronus, including Ortho Vitelli (3:9:33-64; 3:31:15) and Manegus Acquilla (3:12:22), led the opposition against the Regent and his supporters, but they were ultimately defeated. By orders from the Regent, the name of Kronus Maximillius was completely wiped from the records of the empire and all which Kronus had achieved throughout his life was swept away to be no more.


All of this — the death of Yoshibeth, the civil war and subsequent re-enslavement of women — all of this was witnessed by the soul of Kronus who, being incorporeal and ethereal, could see and hear his surroundings but was unable to communicate with or affect in any way those who lived and died (3:31:1-10). His inability to defend Yoshibeth and those he loved left him feeling cursed and filled with despair (3:31:22-31). He was the first and only of his kind, existing beyond the confines of space and time and mortal flesh. Having grown weary of the violence and foolishness of men, the soul of Kronus retreated to the wild places of the earth, holding to the sweet memories of Yoshibeth and his mother, yet often wracked by grief and sorrow. After witnessing the destruction of all life on earth — brought about by a failed weapon experiment by the Chen — the soul of Kronus remained completely alone, drifting in silent anguish with a dead and smoldering planet (1:9:13-20; 3:31:54-63).



First God    (see First God)

Having witnessed the complete destruction of life on earth, and grieving the loss of his mother and dearest Yoshibeth, the soul of Kronus was overcome by despair and sorrow. It is unknown exactly how long the soul of Kronus remained in this solitary state of grief, but at some point, the Universal Consciousness heard his cries, and gently came forth to reveal herself.


And following the earth did Kronus go, filled with hurt and pain; for gone was the mother he loved so well, gone his sweet Beloved, gone into death was all mankind, gone into darkness the world he loved, gone into oblivion his hopes and dreams, to dwell alone forever.

And in the anguish of his soul did Kronus cry aloud, to cast himself in dreadful weeping; being himself consumed by despair and endless sorrow.

But in the Deep did the Mother hear, and in the bosom of her depth did the Beloved awaken; for Areta heard for herself the weeping of some great mind; and going forth from the midst of all her creations, she did most quickly draw near.

And seeing the broken earth which once did live, she beheld the soul of Kronus; and going forth most softly, she did stand before him; and the eyes of Kronus beheld the gathering of a bright and gentle light.

3rd Endowment 31:62-65


Recognizing the gentle light as his mother, the soul of Kronus was elated, yet he shared with her his grief over the loss of all their dreams for humankind, and the deep sorrow he felt for loss of his Beloved Yoshibeth (3:32:1-17). Areta revealed that it was she who re-entered Kronus’ life as Yoshibeth — and suddenly, there stepped out of the light the spirit tabernacle of his dearest Beloved Yoshibeth, to reunite with the soul of Kronus midst joy and tender kisses (3:32:19-22). Soon after the reunion, a spirit tabernacle was fashioned for the soul of Kronus (3:32:26-39). Yoshibeth then establishes that they will forever refer to each other, not as Kronus and Yoshibeth, but as God and Areta. The creation of a spirit tabernacle for the soul of Kronus, and the subsequent beloved union with Areta marks the dawn of First God (3:32:39-46; 4:1:16-22).


While Areta originally used the name ‘God’ to designate her mortal son (3:4:30), and then the immortal spirit created for his soul (3:32:40), the term ‘God’ evolved throughout the eternities in its meaning and usage. Rather than referring to a single celestial being, the term ‘God’ has since become an entitlement of authority. Any Arch-Angel of the Supreme Collective — be they male or female — who is elected to speak for the Collective is, for all intents and purposes, God. Oftentimes, it is the elected Ahman of one of the seven Councils of Light who assumes the role of God.  (see: God/Goddess). Scripture most often refers to the masculine aspect of First God as ‘The One’, who had his beginnings on the world of the First Power, arising from the life of Kronus Maximillius.



Son of Man  (see Son of Man)

The soul of Kronus, later referred to as The One, is recognized in scripture as the original ‘Son of Man’. The phrase is derived from The One’s origins, whose soul — being the first of its kind — had its birth midst the lives of First Man on the world of the First Power. Throughout the eternities, the designation of the ‘Son of Man’ has expanded in its meaning and mystery. The One addresses this topic in the 6th Endowment. Yeshua also refers to the ‘Son of Man’ several times in his teachings.


For the meaning of the Son of Man have I derived from former times, having myself in my beginning sprung forth from the seed of First Man; even such men as once did dwell upon the world of the First Power, when I as Kronus strode upon the earth filled with dreams and hopeful yearnings.

Thus in this meaning am I the Son of Man, but not this only; for in the creating of God and Heaven was there fashioned still more subtle meaning; evolving throughout the eternities to be myself the Sun of Man also, even the light which would chase away the darkness, to give both shape and vision to all who would believe.

6th Endowment 2:17-18


For this cause is the Son of Man come forth, that he might seek and save that which is lost.

For it is not the Father’s will that any should perish, being lost and without hope....

For the Son of Man came not to do his own will, but to seek and to save that which is lost.

Yeshua 12:23-24, 28



Timeline Replication

The One reveals that the spirit of Azraella Ahgendai will be concealed within the mortal tabernacle of Kronus when he manifests in the replicated timeline of the world of the First Power — our present timeline. A literal interpretation of scripture indicates that the mortal tabernacle of Archie D. Wood, Sr. (aka Azrael Ondi-Ahman) is a perfect reflection of Kronus Maximillius from the original timeline, yet contains a spirit element of the Azraella, representing a synthesis of beginning and end (6:6:6, 20-24; 1:2:6-7, 36, 40).

Azrael’s Commentary — Rio Cassalia


Located near present-day New York on the Hudson River, the city of Rio Cassalia was a military town in which the Academy of A’Kontay was established for the sole purpose of training the future officer corps for the entire military establishment. All military branches, whether army, navy or air force drew their officers from a single military system of training and education. It was during the last three years of training, when cadets achieved the status of a first-year senior that they were assigned to specialized training for that service into which they were to be inducted. When Kronus achieved his standing as a first-year senior, his name was posted on the notice board with other seniors informing him that he had been chosen for induction into the army once he completed his third year as a senior. The last three years at A’Kontay were spent learning and training with the actual legions posted in and around Rio Cassalia. The training was grueling, unrelenting and harsh. It was meant to break the weak and invigorate the strong. It was courage, obedience, endurance and ruthlessness which were valued and not much else.



Azrael’s Commentary — Seti-Kahn


[...] Seti-Kahn took no notice of his son Kronus, until Kronus began to make a name for himself at the Academy of A’Kontay. His jealousy over Kronus’ success in achieving three gold standards was unbearable. More than anything, Seti-Kahn wanted his son dead and forgotten. The question could be asked: Why didn’t Seti-Kahn just have him killed? The answer to that was simple. As Supreme Commander of the military, Seti-Kahn knew that he was being carefully watched by the state secret police, the Stazzi. And the Stazzi reported directly to the Emperor. Seti-Kahn also knew that the Emperor had taken an interest in his son Kronus. He rightly surmised that the reason behind the Emperor’s interest was the interest the Emperor had in seeing what Seti-Kahn would do about his son. The turmoil which Seti-Kahn felt over the success of his son, Kronus, was a fascinating intrigue which the Emperor took a perverse pleasure in watching (3:9:8-32). [...]






Out of the 747 direct references to Kronus or his House, 13 of those are found outside of the 3rd Endowment.

Such was the love and devotion of Areta unto her son; and unto the son did she give a small and tender name; calling him God, midst smiles and gentle laughter; which in the language of Areta means: Noble One.

3rd Endowment 4:30


Such was the feasting of Kronus, the Hero of the State; for those which attended did find him gracious and filled with good and lively humor; finding in him a man worthy of praise and honor exceeding.

For Kronus spoke in friendly manner to all men, causing that even those which he did best in the fighting of the staves, even these did find in him a gracious and friendly victor who would guard through careful words, the pride of all who fell before him.

But for the men which hated him and who conspired to kill him, even these did begin to fear; for Kronus proved greater than all their cunning; causing, himself, that all their plans should crumble into ruin.

3rd Endowment 29:45-47


1. So Kronus died, yet did the soul of Kronus remain alive and ready knowing; being himself untouched by death, neither was he moved or pushed by such elements and forces as would bind the flesh; being himself immortal and filled with life; dwelling beyond the reach of space and time and mortal flesh.

2. Being himself aloof and untouched by things of corporeal nature, perceiving through the fields of the soul, the sight and sound and feel of the mortal world which continued round about him;

3. Being himself bound in light while the world of men did seem as shadows pale and thin; being themselves hedged up on every side with uncertainties and perplexities of which there is no end.

4. For the soul of Kronus was without such bounds and limitations as do afflict the flesh; being in his soul the first of his kind which did live beyond the ending of his death, dwelling forever beyond the confines of mortal flesh.

5. Being himself incorporeal and ethereal in all his nature, possessing in himself the seed of some ineffable mystery filled with wonder; moving here and going there midst the passing roar of a sudden rush; yet drifting and passing lightly by as if some breath or wind compelled him.

3rd Endowment 31:1-5


And when they were completed, to rest in each the other’s arms, Yoshibeth spoke, saying: “From this day, my Love, shall I cease to call you Kronus; for this name did violent men deign to give. Therefore, I shall be to you as Areta only, while you to me shall I call God.

For in the days of your childhood did the Mother call you such, finding in you that noble person from which all things good are made to live in the affairs of men; to find in you that full expression of love and life together blended.

Kronus (House of)
