Yet regardless of all these things, still did God continue faithful to reveal, and
in the time appointed there came into the world of men the Teacher of Righteousness,
being known among men as John the Baptizer, being in himself alone, the very father
of the Essenes and the Gnosis.
Summary: The office and title, “Teacher of Righteousness”, was first conferred upon
the great teacher, Abbahdon, who was recognized on the mortal world of Terralee as
the mortal embodiment of God and leader of the sixth dispensation (4:24:25).
Scripture recognizes John the Baptizer as the “father of the Essenes”, the “Friend
of God”, and the “Teacher of Righteousness” (W:29:9,16-18; AZC — John the Baptizer;
para. 7). Furthermore, the author of the Song of God, Archie D. Wood, Sr. (aka Azrael),
is proclaimed to have the same divine identity as John the Baptizer, and as such,
is identified as the Teacher of Righteousness reincarnated (W:29:16-19, 27, 35; 6:1:33-41).
Azrael’s Commentary - John the Baptizer; para. 7
[...] John created a religious sect which came to be known as the Essenes. The word
is Adamic and refers to those who desire to heal. John the Baptizer was known among
the Essenes as: The Teacher of Righteousness. What might surprise some is the fact
that John built a temple in Egypt, in a small city called Elephentine. John died
in 34 CE.
And there did they call forth Abbahdon and did confer upon him the office and title:
The Teacher of Righteousness, which office had never before existed; to set him above
the whole assembly altogether; to stand himself revealed as the teacher which was
come from Heaven to bring forth a new dispensation.
4th Endowment 24:25

Seeing then that the house of Christ in ages past did force into the shadows of the
lost and forgotten, this gnosis which came from God, it became both expedient and
necessary that God should set the stage for the return of the Teacher of Righteousness,
who was himself the very Friend of God.
Consider then such events as did move and turn in preparation for the restoration
of that very gnosis which the Gods of Heaven would give again; for in the years prior
to the birth of this Mighty One, even God did cause to be revealed the lost books
of Nag Hammadi, down in Egypt land, for out of the sands of captivity was there brought
forth the essence of ancient knowledge.
Then came forth the second sign, for at the birth of the Friend of God, did there
spring up suddenly before the world, still another treasure; for there was found
in the desert of Qumran the lost books of the very Essenes, of whom John himself
was the only father, signifying the return of the Teacher of Righteousness and the
restoration of the lost gnosis of God.
For even now has there come again the Teacher of Righteousness, whereby he might
instruct, with utmost care, even every man and every woman who would become as Only
Begotten, having inherited for themselves a new Heaven and a new earth; to become
themselves through equal diligence, as those who walk with God.
Look you then and clearly see, for even now is there come again the Teacher of Righteousness,
and whosoever will believe in him to follow after, even they shall become as a mystery
and a wonder; being themselves lifted up unto God, to possess for themselves even
their own Eroel, the pearl beyond price or measure.”

And I shall set over them a new shepherd who will watch over them tenderly, who will
lead them in all the words of the Lord, for I shall stretch forth my hand into a
desert place to bring forth my servant.
Him have I prepared from his youth, that he might teach even all my children; a teacher
of righteousness shall he be unto me, for I shall hide in his inward parts the power
of my word.
