And the Ancient of Days spoke unto the Teacher a great parable, saying: “In the beginning
did Michael and his Beloved together dream, and Adam and Eve came unto the earth
that God might breathe into man the breath of life, whereby the children of men might
possess a living soul.
Background (Adapted from Azrael’s Commentary - Eve): The name “Eve” is a shortened
version of the name “Evelah”. The name means: “divine woman”, implying a woman of
the highest esteem and order who takes her origin from God. On every world where
the dispensations of God roll forth, the leading woman of the first dispensation
always takes upon herself the name of Evelah.
The Song of God refers to two different women named Eve. The woman, Eve, as introduced
in the book of Beginnings, was the mortal manifestation and embodiment of the Arch-Angel,
Sher-el, the Beloved of Michael (Adam). She served as co-leader of the first dispensation
here on this world. The second Eve (referred to as “Evelah”) is mentioned in the
4th Endowment. During the first dispensation on the world of Terralee, Evelah was
the mortal manifestation of Areta, the mother of life and spirit and the co-creator
of Heaven and all subsequent worlds and universes both mortal and divine.
Summary: Eve, the mortal manifestation of the Arch-Angel, Sher-el, was the co-founder
of the first dispensation on this world. Arriving sometime around 12,775 BCE in ancient
Mesopotamia, Eve and her beloved husband, Adam, dwelt among the native evolutionary
modern humans (Enoshahim), teaching them crucial skills that would become the foundation
While Adam taught about herbs, plants, medicine, and the making of bricks and houses,
Eve taught women the art of weaving, the making of clay lamps, and concepts regarding
the covenant of marriage (B:1:9-18; 1:10:35). Referred to as the ‘mother of all living’,
or the ‘mother of all men’, Eve played a crucial role in the rise of human development.
Eve had many children, however, the text only mentions Cain, Abel, and Seth. Adam
and Eve dwelt on the earth for 930 years before their ascension, sometime around
11,845 BCE (B:6:1; AZC - Adamic Council).

But Adam and Eve had compassion upon the children of men and in the evening tide,
Eve would sing from the midst of Eden and all who heard would gather round about
her, and they grew to love Eve, even as their own mother, for she did nurture them
with great tenderness.
Now in the beginning did Eve receive the oath and covenant of Matriarchy before the
world was, that by such righteousness as she should establish might the spirit children
of Emmanuel come into the tabernacles of Enosh.
Come then and this mystery receive, for in the beginning did Adam and Eve bring forth
from the very Heavens, the first of the gnosis to seed among the tribes of man; and
when they were planted, then came the minions of the Demiurge to uproot and to scatter
what God had foreordained.
Thus by careful measure did Adam and Eve uplift the minds of all, both male and female,
that they might rise above the meanness of their former lives, to stand before the
whole creation, being made altogether new and filled with promise.
Seeing therefore that the children of men were made separated from the beasts of
the earth, they did take upon themselves the nature and disposition of Adam and Eve;
learning from the very beginning the ways of peace and kind affection.
For behold, the children of men did esteem greatly the presence of Adam and Eve,
thinking them to be Gods which were worthy of worship and emulation; counting their
presence as some great gain, being by their very nature preferable to that Demiurge
which would rule most harshly over them.
