Abel (Earth)


Pronunciation:  AY-bl

Occurrences:  71

First Reference:  Beginnings 1:24


And Eve conceived again and bore another son, and she called his name Abel, for he was comely and loved the Lord his God with all his might, insomuch that the children of men were filled with wonder towards the God of Abel.

Background:  There are two different individuals referred to as “Abel” in the Song of God: the Abel who lived on this earth (c. 12,768 — c. 12,725 BCE), and the Abel who lived on the mortal world of Terralee. On every mortal world where the dispensations of God are established, the second son of the Adamilus and the Evelah is always given the name (or title) of Abel.


Summary:  (c. 12,768 — c. 12,725 BCE) Abel, the second son of Adam and Eve, was married to Yoshibel when he was about forty years old (AZC — Abel). This was a significant event because with the marriage of Abel and Yoshibel — who was a native human of earth (see Enoshahim) — the priesthood of the Great Mother (the Matriarchal priesthood) was first bestowed unto the daughters of men (B:3:1-5). Anointing Yoshibel with precious oil, Eve ordained her the wife of Abel and bestowed upon her the power to grant the Matriarchal priesthood unto all of her future daughters.


The marriage of Abel and Yoshibel greatly irritated Cain, who having taken many wives over the years, was never provided a marriage and sealing ceremony by his parents (B:3:7). While Cain’s jealousy, anger and resentment had been festering for years, it was at this event that he resolved to kill his younger brother as way of getting back at his father Adam (AZC: “Abel”).


Abel and Yoshibel had a son whom they named Gimel (B:3:8). It was not long after the birth of Gimel that Cain lured Abel into a meadow and killed him (B:3:9-26). This tragic event was unprecedented, as never before in the vast, history of mortal worlds and God’s dispensations had a direct descendant of Adam and Eve (the Adaam) “rise[n] up in anger to kill another” (1:8:48-51). In response to the murder of Abel, the Elohim was guided by Mahaleenah to petition The One for the assistance of the Azraella Ahgendai in stabilizing the first dispensation (and those thereafter) on the world of the First Power (6:8:19-45, 1:8:52-56).


On earth, Mother Eve was promised a future son, to be named Seth, through whom a great covenant would be established (B:5:5-12,19-21). Born the eighteenth son of Adam and Eve (AZC: “Seth”), Seth was the mortal manifestation of the Azraella Ahgendai (1:3:18-21).


As recompense for killing Abel, Cain was given a mark upon his face by an angel of God. The mark was given as a means of redemption for Cain, serving as a warning to those who might kill him. Cain’s natural aging process was modified. As stated by the angel: “For God delights not in the death of the wicked, lest the days of their repentance be cut short from them” (B:4:22). Cain lived for nearly 4,000 years before he was murdered by his son, Yasher-Baal (B:7:27-36). According to the angel, if anyone were to kill Cain, they would receive seven times his punishment (B:4:22).



Azrael’s Commentary — Abel

The second son of Adam and Eve; murdered by his elder brother Cain out of jealousy and envy. As a young man, Abel began writing down the teachings of his father. These writings later became the early source material to the Five Books of Adam. Abel also kept a journal of his family life which he called: The Chronicles of Paradise.


One of the earliest of Adamic teachers, Abel taught the Enoshahim the skills of husbandry, farming, music, writing and language. It was in a dream that Abel saw how to make the flute and the lyre. Abel also spent a great deal of time experimenting with the best ways for making paper.


At about the age of forty, Abel married a beautiful woman named Yoshibel and together they had a son which they named Gimel. It was at the marriage of Abel and Yoshibel that Cain bitterly decided to kill his brother Abel as a way to get back at his father Adam (Beginnings 3:1-7).



The House / Seed of Abel           Beginnings 5:1-17          Beginnings 24:12-20

Following Abel’s death, God established a promise that the evil of Cain would be removed from the face of the land through the seed of Abel and the seed of a future son named Seth (B:5:1-17; B:24:12-20). Many great and mighty prophets were promised to come through the seed of Abel, including the Anointed One (B:4:21). In addition, it was foretold that through the lineage of Abel would come “one who is great and mighty”, a teacher of heavenly things (B:5:14-16).


12. So shall God remove the evil of Cain from the face of the land. For through the seed of Seth shall the covenant come; and by the seed of Abel shall the Anointed One be given unto mankind whereby evil shall be done away.

13. And God shall cover the house of Abel with his own hand, that no evil should come upon them to destroy until the day of election, when they shall be sent forth by the voice of God to walk among the children of men, to proclaim loudly the day of the Lord.

14. And there shall come forth from the seed of Abel one who is great and mighty. He shall go forth from the house of affliction, and he shall teach the children of men great wisdom. And as many as will shall he make to become as prophets, seers, and revelators of God.

15. Even a teacher of heavenly things shall God cause to walk among the children of men. And as many as shall have desire to know the mysteries of God shall he satisfy with deep understanding.

16. And he shall send forth the godly that they might establish among the peoples of many nations the tabernacle of peace, that there might be room made for the coming forth of the great God when he shall come in the fullness of time.

17. Therefore, grieve not overmuch concerning the murder of Abel your son, neither of Abel your husband. For he is faithful who promised.”

Beginnings 5:12-17


The covenant later established between God and Abraham (c. 1,700 BCE?) was a manifestation of the divine promise relating to the seed of Abel (B:24:12-20,67).
