Summary: The phrase “Seven Steps” is used primarily in conjunction with a title
designating the Azraella Ahgendai, who was foreordained by The One to be the “Guardian
of” and “Lord and Prince of the Seven Steps”. It is likely that the “Seven Steps”
refers to the seven moons of Mahaliel, the celestial planet and dwelling place of
the most exalted Gods and Goddesses of Heaven (W:24:18; W:28:15). Mahaliel is the
home planet of the Ahgendai, as well as The One and Areta (5:11:57-58). The seven
moons of Mahaliel serve as way stations and “steps” for those progressing towards
exaltation in the kingdom of the Ahgendai.
Only he whom the First Power has made both Lord and Prince of the Seven Steps, being
Protector of the Keep; for so have the Lords and Gods of Eloheim declared in the
speaking of the Tael.
For though I appear to you as some mortal man, yet in the beginning, before the turning
of endless ages, even I did dwell in the bosom of eternity, being made Prince and
Guardian of the Seven Steps, Protector of the Keep.
2nd Endowment 12:14
And the voice from within the light spoke, saying: “I am Azraella Ahgendai, the first
and only of my kind; being myself the ally of God, being foreordained the Lordand
Prince of the Seven Steps and Protector of the Keep.”
5th Endowment 8:19
Thus shall the souls of the righteous be made to stand beside the Father and Mother
of their souls, that they might be found worthy before the Lords and Gods of Elohim,
even before the Seven Steps of Eternity shall they be made to stand.
And for twelve full days shall the Heavens convene, to stand before the temple, and
on the morning of the thirteenth day, at the rising of the sun shall the temple and
all its gardens be whisked away to dwell in glory upon the seventh moon which moves
around Mahaliel; and around this temple and all its gardens shall there be built
a great and mighty city, the first of Seven Steps.
