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: Evelah taught many things to the Enoshahim (native, evolutionary humans)
of Terralee, including: the laws of marriage, the weaving and dying of fabric, the
value of vegetarianism, and the knowledge of herbs and medicine. She also established
a calendar system (4:7:40-47). Adamilus and Evelah had at least four children: Cain,
Abel, Mahali, and Yoshibel. Aside from the title-nature of the names, these individuals
should not be confused with the children born to the Adam and Eve of this world.
After 250 years, Adamilus and Evelah gathered their House at the base of a mountain,
and after offering final words of counsel, ascended into Heaven (4:8:22-62).
So God did leave the world of the First Heaven, and together did The One and Areta
appear as a man and a woman most beautiful and rare; and in the world of Terralee
did they walk upon the earth, being themselves husband and wife. And the children
of men did come from afar to see them, and seeing the form and goodness of God among
them, they were filled with deep and reverent awe at the greatness of their grace
And there spoke to The One, a certain woman, saying: “Who are you and from what place
do you come? For we have never seen your likeness.”
Then did The One answer her before the gathering of her whole tribe, saying: “I am
Adamilus, and this, my Beloved, is Evelah; and from yonder stars do we come, from
a place which we call Heaven.”
