On the seventh day after Abraham was circumcised before the Lord, there came unto
the grove of Mamre, Abiel of Salem, and he was clothed in white raiment and there
was upon his countenance the power of endless lives.
Summary: Salem of Merigoth is the premier city of the celestial realms of the Elohim.
Located on the chief planet of Jeruel, Salem was created by Galendriel, the Supreme
and Sovereign Mother of Elohim, as a gift to her Beloved husband after they were
appointed as co-Ahmans of the Council (AZC — Galendriel). The city of Salem floats
in the sky (E:2:7), and serves as the dwelling place of the Elohim’s most glorified
citizens. Both the Temple of the Archons and the Temple of Valhaladea are located
in the city of Salem (1:1:19). When the Houses and Quorums of Elohim convene, or
when the presiding members of the Elohim gather, such events take place in Salem
of Merigoth (1:8:1; 5:5:1; 6:10:34).
As a note of interest: Ahman and Galendriel were first sealed to their exaltation
during a mortal life in which they served as king and queen of a city-state called
‘Salem’, on the mortal world of Acqualia (AZC — Melchizedek).

holiness exceeding; and there alone did the Father and Mother of All reside; and
of all the cities which God alone had made was there none to equal Salem of Merigoth.
Behold then the beauty and wonder of Salem, whose very foundation the celestial world
was unworthy to touch, having been established forever in the airs above; being trimmed
on every side midst clouds of heavenly light, whose brightness and glory as a sun
did shine upon all the lands of Jeruel.
Now Abraham went and bowed himself down before the King of Salem, and Melchizedek
spoke unto him, saying: “Greetings to you, Abraham. Peace and blessing be upon your
But in the kingdom of God did there gather unto Salem of Merigoth, the Council of
Elohim from all Jeruel, and unto that exalted council were gathered also from all
the celestial worlds of Kolob the quorums of Korimash, Terrigai, Lorridoth, Borgolie,
Marridon, Yoshliheim, Sarrijah, Xandori, Vangeleia, Shemhora, Shimbeth, and Kimjaroo.
And the quorums which gathered were great in number, and filling up the whole city,
there spilled out unto the plains below Salem, and in the airs above the plain and
in the heavens above the city the very Lords and Gods of Kolob, each according to
their house and order.
For even unto the beautiful city would the heavens gather from afar to hear for themselves
the words which Ahman would speak unto them; for of Shaemdiel and the Demiurge were
all made aware.
