Summary: On the mortal world of Terralee, there came to be established among the
General Assembly of believers an organizational body called the “Solemn Assembly”.
Comprised of Patriarchs and Matriarchs from various cities, members of the Solemn
Assembly arose from the membership of the General Assembly. An even more distinguished
committee existed called the “Council of Lords”, which ruling council was comprised
of thirty-five Patriarchs and thirty-five Matriarchs (4:24:1-2).
The great teacher and dispensational leader, Moshe, was elected as the forty-ninth
Presiding Patriarch of the Solemn Assembly when he was sixty years old (4:20:57-59).
And Moshe became a writer of commentaries and a teacher of godly things; and when
he was sixty years of age he was elected the Presiding Patriarch of the Solemn Assembly
Which Solemn Assembly held the membership of some thirty cities, as well as all the
towns and villages which lay between.
And on the seventh day of the first month of Kishloo, there was convened some one
hundred and thirty thousand believers who would see for themselves the ordination
and setting apart of Moshe, becoming himself the forty-ninth Presiding Patriarch
of the Solemn Assembly.
4th Endowment 20:57-59
For at no time had any man or woman memorized word for word the ‘Book of God’, or
memorized also with equal zeal the nine commentaries of Moshe; and there came from
out of the Solemn Assembly, many scholars which would converse with him on every
subject, being anxious themselves to test him.
