And there flowed from out of the Ahmans a kind and warm regard, to lay before the
Azraella an invitation that he might return with them to the Council of the Seven
Lights whereby the Azraella might be honored midst deep and solemn thanksgiving.
Summary: The Celestial Kingdom is comprised of seven Councils of Light. After Yaldabaoth’s
first assault against Heaven, presiding members of the Seven Councils determined
it was necessary to create a single governing body which could more efficiently work
and communicate with the Azraella Ahgendai. Thus was formed the Council of the Seven
This Council is mentioned only once in scripture (5:17:36). It is perhaps at this
gathering that The One and Areta organized the supreme council and its mandates.
Azrael's Commentary - Seven Councils of Light (excerpt)
[...] No one lives on Ker-El-Shamudef, it is merely a gathering place for the supreme
governing body of all the realms of Heaven. This elite council is known as the Council
of the Seven Lights, and convenes only on two occasions: 1) at the behest of The
One and Areta, 2) at the Nexus of a new eternity. These gatherings always take place
on Ker-El-Shamudef. As a general rule, only those whose glory is that of the Archon
or greater are permitted to attend any of the sessions of the supreme council. But
on rare occasions, all members of the seven celestial councils may be invited to
witness something truly exceptional.
There are 115 permanent members on the Council of the Seven Lights. These members
are the Ahmans of each council, plus the seven Chief Archons, both Patriarchal and
Matriarchal, of each council. The Seraphim elect only one member to represent all
the tribes of the Seraphim on the Council of Seven Lights. Over this sublime quorum
presides The One and Areta. What is interesting is the fact that the Ahgendai are
not permanent members of this council, but are instead permanent members of an even
more exclusive council known as the Council of The One. This council consists of
eleven members: The One, Areta, the Azraella and his Daughter, plus the seven Azurgai.
Prior to the [First War] in Heaven, there was no single supreme governing body called
the Council of the Seven Lights. With the rebellion of Shaemdiel and the battle between
Yaldabaoth and the Azraella, in which the Ahman Dahmiel was made a casualty, the
kingdoms of celestial glory saw a need for a single governing body which could respond
as one in dealing with the dark Savior known as the Azraella. Instead of the Ahgendai
having to deal with seven separate councils, there was now one which could decide
things for all councils at once. It was The One and Areta which assembled the first
supreme council and defined for them their mandate: at the approach of war, whatever
the Azraella shall command for the defense of the heavenly realms, this shall the
Seven Councils of Light strive with all diligence to do.
