Despite Rutheniel’s efforts to gently persuade Shaemdiel from pursuing his prideful
ambitions, he remained fixated in his desire to prove the rightness of his way before
God. Rutheniel consistently pleaded with her husband to let go of his anger and resentment,
but her loving counsel was repeatedly ignored and Shaemdiel continued to fall deeper
and deeper into pride. While Shaemdiel rallied the support of his sons, Rutheniel
refused to endorse his rebellious cause. As a result, none of Rutheniel’s daughters
chose to follow their Father in his rebellion against God (5:5:29-37).
Shaemdiel’s insurrection eventually turned violent, culminating in a short-lived
campaign on the plains of Kuristan. The hostility came to an abrupt end when Ahman
and the Azraella descended upon the plains with the Houses of Elohim in all their
glory. Shaemdiel and one third of his lineage were bound and cast from the Celestial
Kingdom to the realms of the First Cosmos (E:9:1-75; 1:4:15-23; W:15:1-47). Prior
to being evicted, Shaemdiel’s daughters joined with their fallen beloveds, to be
counted among those expelled from Heaven. This feigned act of solidarity was part
a secret plan devised by Mahaleenah and Rutheniel who sought to establish a path
of redemption for Shaemdiel and his sons (6:2:23-47). Rutheniel and her daughters
were not included among those cast from Heaven. Shaemdiel and Rutheniel were replaced
in their positions by Arch-Angels, Michael and Sher-el (E:9:42-43).
Scripture presents an event in which the Fallen are forgiven and Shaemdiel — having
become genuinely penitent — is rejoined with his Beloved, Rutheniel. After having
presented his defense of humankind before the Demiurge, Jehovah-Yahweh, Azrael Ahgendai
converses with Shaemdiel and brings about the reunion of Rutheniel and her dearest
At the conclusion of the seventh dispensation on this world, the redemption of the
Fallen and the reunion of Shaemdiel and Rutheniel will be officially recognized during
the sacred convocation held at the Gardens of Ondi-Ahman (AZC — Ondi-Ahman, Sacred
Gardens of; para. 1).

5th Endowment 5:37
Thus did the Chief Archon of the Elohim presume to act against his Heavenly Father
and Heavenly Mother, believing all the while that he acted only for their good; having
made of himself a fault finder against all those he thought less worthy than himself.
Yet did the Beloved of Shaemdiel, even Rutheniel, plead constantly with her husband,
hoping through kind words to persuade Shaemdiel from falling deeper into pride; which
pride gave birth in Shaemdiel to the constant troublings of a dark and brooding ego
which chafed and complained constantly against such constraints as would compel him
to act rightly and not amiss.

“The re-created garden of Eden or Paradise, where Father Adam and Mother Eve will
convene the sacred convocation where all the children of God who have lived a mortal
life in this world of the First Power shall be gathered. This great convocation will
correspond to the one reported in the book of Beginnings 5:22, and will close out
the seventh dispensation. This sacred convocation will finalize this replication
of the time line in this world of the First Power, and will officially proclaim the
redemption of Shaemdiel and his fallen children. It will be at this convocation that
Shaemdiel and Rutheniel shall once again establish their union before all those who
