Summary: Kolob refers to the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven, but more specifically,
the term designates the seven celestial suns and their respective planetary systems
that comprise the Celestial Kingdom. This cluster of seven solar systems is referred
to in scripture as “Kolob’s Cluster”.
The Celestial Kingdom was the third Heaven to be created by God (4:32:23-24), and
is the realm of the most advanced and evolved beings in existence. While the lesser
kingdoms of Heaven, referred to as the Olaha Shinehah, have evolved to contain hundreds
of billions of suns, the Celestial Kingdom is comprised of just seven. (A recent
development has added five new suns, creating a total of twelve celestial suns (see
suns of Ashengaard)). Each celestial solar system is a sovereign realm, and is represented
by a divine Council (see Councils of Light) (1:2:4). Each celestial sun contains
within its orbit three planets, with each planet having one to four paradise moons
The seven suns of Kolob orbit a center point of attraction called “Absolute Zero”.
This point is represented by a unique planet called Ker-El-Shamudef. Proximity to
this planet determines the realm’s power and glory —which power and glory is correlated
with access to and control of an increasing number of dimensions, primes and fractals.
The Council of Elohim dwells in the system farthest from Absolute Zero and orbits
the sun called Xanathea. The Council of El Jor El and its designated sun, Kanthia
(AZC - Councils of Light), is the youngest and most exalted of the seven celestial
councils, and has the closest orbit to Absolute Zero.
There are differing Orders of Ascension within the Celestial Kingdom, within which
the various Councils, Houses and Quorums are organized. Each of the Seven Councils
of Light consists of seven great Houses which are grouped into three Holy Orders
of Ascension. The first Order receives its designation from the primary planet of
the Council. The second Order receives its designation from the Council’s primary
sun. The third Holy Order has the same designation for all seven Councils, and is
simply referred to as the Order of Kolob. Members of the House of Archons and House
of Valhaladea are considered Gods and Goddesses, and as such, are partaking in the
third Holy Order of Ascension: the Order of Kolob (AZC – Elohim).
Five New Suns Added to Kolob
As part of a new stage in the evolution of Heaven, five new suns were added to the
seven established suns of the Celestial Kingdom (5:4:58-60). The One and Areta created
twelve new suns, referred to as the “suns of Ashengaard”, and placed them in the
Chasm outside the realms of Kolob. It was eventually determined by the Councils of
Light that five of the suns be included among the suns of Kolob, while the other
seven suns of Ashengaard be left for whatever intent The One and Areta had for them.
The remaining seven suns were later given to the Ahgendai to be utilized in the creation
of their kingdom (5:11:56).
For this cause shall God make room in the kingdom of Heaven for even all the children
of men, from the worlds of Olaha Shinehah to the glories of Kolob shall both room
and place be found, from the least even to the greatest.
Consider then, how that there is given unto the Celestial Kingdom but seven suns
of glory; while yet in the lesser kingdoms of Olaha Shinehah there are given a multitude
of stars beyond number.
Let us, even now, reason well among ourselves concerning this kingdom of the greater
Light: For would not the glory of twelve suns shine brighter still than seven only?
And if there be greater dominion in twelve suns, would there not be greater glory
in forty, or seventy, or even a hundred times a hundred? Would not the glory of Kolob
shine brighter than it does even now?
For the suns of Koloband the suns of Ashengaard did together embrace and the splendor
of their many lights did reach out to touch, with all holy affections, a great many
new worlds of celestial glory, filled with endless joy and life.
