Aretakai

 

Pronunciation:  AH-reh-tay-kai  /  AH[R]-tay-kai

Occurrences:  5 (Commentary only)

 

 

See:  Arch-Angel, Archon, Heavenly Mother, Valhaladea (House of)

 

Summary:  While the term Archon refers to a father Arch-Angel, the term Aretakai denotes a female or mother Arch-Angel. More specifically, the word is an Adamic title referring to the supreme will of Areta as represented throughout the working of all mother Arch-Angels within the celestial House of Valhaladea. The term Aretakai is never used in scripture, but can be found in Azrael’s Commentary entry, House of Valhaladea.

Azrael’s Commentary - House of Valhaladea

 

Matriarchal in function, after the Order of Kolob, this is the house of mother Arch-Angels. And although they are equal to Archons, they are not called Archons but are called the Aretakai instead. This Adamic title refers to the supreme will of Areta as represented throughout the working of all mother Arch-Angels within the Council of Elohim. The work of the Aretakai begins in the Temple of Valhaladea (1st Endowment 1:19-22).

 

The work and influence of the Aretakai flows from the temple down through all the other houses represented in the Council of Elohim. While the Archons focus primarily on that portion of Hodos Alea which deals with eternal progression, the Aretakai deal with the secondary stage of Hodos Alea. That stage is called the Path of Exaltation. Hodos Alea (at least as it pertains to the Elohim) consists of three primary stages: 1) the path of eternal progression, 2) the path of exaltation, 3) the enrapturing and deification of the elect.

 

It is the House of Valhaladea which is responsible for the majority of creations within the Celestial Kingdom of the Elohim. All cities, gardens, temples and structures are first designed by the Aretakai. The peace, beauty and glory of Jeruel is maintained, enhanced and made harmonious for the sake of beauty and glory. All living creatures, great and small are cared for by the House of Valhaladea.
