And it came to be that Abbahdon was brought secretly before the Council of Lords
in the city of Pilar, which council did consist of thirty-five patriarchs and thirty-five
matriarchs; and there stood beside Abbahdon even his own Beloved, Gaia, who was herself
awed to stand before so august a body.
Summary: On the mortal world of Terralee, the city of Pilar was the gathering place
for the Council of Lords, the ruling body of the General Assembly. A young man named
Abbahdon had caught the attention of the Council and was invited to Pilar to be tested
by Council members to determine if he was sent by God to be the next dispensational
leader. When the Council deemed Abbahdon worthy of the position, he gracefully refused
the offer, claiming himself too young to be officially recognized as the one sent
from God to teach the people (4:24:1-15). Years later, at the age of fifty, Abbahdon
accepted the office and title of ‘Teacher of Righteousness’, and formally initiated
the fifth dispensation on the world of Terralee (4:24:24-25).
