THE FIRST BOOK OF ATHLYI
CHAPTER I - THE CREATION
From the beginning there was God and he spake and all things were made that are made.
The sixth day God made man for his glory, and all things were given unto him for his possession and for his use the woman hath God made
of man and for the glory of the man that she serve him and raise up seed untohim.
And God rested the seventh day and hallowed it that men should do also.
Now when the man saw the woman that was made of him and for his glory, he loved her and married with her, consequently she bore
children unto Him and they became the father and mother of all men.
And God called the man Adam and the woman Eve. They were of a mixed complexion.
And it came to pass that God commanded theman to give names to all things that are made.
CHAPTER 2 - DEAD BECAME ALIVE
And it came to pass that God entered the body of an unknown dead and the dead became alive, then did he walk about the earth in person.
He dwelt among men and wrought many miracles so that the Kingdom of heaven might be verified. He suffered persecution and privation
as an example of what ministers of the gospel mustsuffer to maintain the kingdom of God among men.
And it came to pass that God gave his name Elijah, and he called upon the name of the Lord God even though he himself was God.
Now when the time had appeared for God to return, the supreme angel commanded the chariot of heaven to meet him. And when the
chariot appeared unto Elijah, he ascended and returned to his throne in heaven where he reignedfrom the beginning and shall, unto the end,
King of kings, and God of gods.
Had the men in the days of Elijah's visit on earth taken a right record of his administration, long before this day the inhabitants of this
earth would have known him as God of all men.
For in Elijah do the heavenly host worship as God of the universe and in him do I, Athlyi, believe as the only God.
He is the Lordof righteousness and of love, an industrious God, brave, omnipotent, omnipresent, a king of sympathy and of justice,
giver of power and salvation, upon this God, and him only, his law and the Holy Ghost shall the Athlyians build their church.
We shall endeavour to please and serve him, for he is our God. We shall worship him with all our hearts and with all our souls, for unto
us there is none...
