First Reference: Wisdom 2:15 (indirect reference — W:2:7, 14)
“Do you know this book? It is the Book of Judgments which the Lord has kept concerning
all the doings of this people, for their pretenses rise continually before the Lord.
For this cause came he forth from the sanctuary that you may be sent forth to build
his kingdom among many people, that you might organize, direct, and establish the
tabernacle of God upon the earth.
Summary: The Book of Judgments represents God’s indictment against the house of
Christ as a result of the many pretenses and misdoings of the people. In a sacred
gathering, Emmanuel presented a book and a balance to the mighty Arch-Angel, Ariel,
who then approached the man referred to as “The Teacher” (presumably the author of
the scriptures) and spoke to him directly (W:2:7, 14).
Ariel — the leader of the fifth and previous dispensation — presents the Book and
balance before the man, pronouncing him to be the one appointed by God to declare
the Lord’s indictment against the house of Christ, and “organize, direct, and establish
the tabernacle of God upon the earth” (W:2:15-26).
