<​March 15​> which were near unto it; and the Lord said unto me, these are the governing ones; and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me: for I am the Lord thy God, I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order of that upon which thou standest. And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its Times and Seasons in the revolutions thereof, that one revolution was a day unto the Lord. After his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time appointed unto that whereon thou standest; this is the reckoning of the Lord’s time according to the reckoning of Kolob.

Explanation of the above cut
Fig.1. Kolob. signifying the first Creation, nearest to the Celestial, or the residence of God. First in Government, the last pertaining to the measurement of time. The measurement according to celestial time; which, celestial time, signifies one day to a cubit. One day in Kolob, is equal to a thousand years, according to the measurement of this Earth, which is called by the Egyptians Jah-oh-eh.
Fig. 2. Stand’s next to Kolob, called by the Egyptians Oliblish, which is the next grand governing creation, near to the celestial or the place where God resides; holding the key of power also, pertaining to other planets; as revealed from God to Abraham, as he offered sacrifice upon an altar, which he had built unto the Lord.
Fig. 3. Is made to represent God, sitting upon his throne, clothed with power and authority: with a crown of eternal light upon his head; representing, also, the grand key words of the Holy Priesthood, as revealed to Adam in the Garden of Eden, as also to Seth, Noah, Melchisedek, Abraham and all to whom the Priesthood was revealed.
Fig. 4. Answers to the Hebrew word. Raukeeyang, signifying expanse, or the firmament of the Heavens: also, a numerical figure, in Egyptian, signifying one thousand: answering to the measuring of the time of Oliblish, which is equal with Kolob, in its revolution and in its measuring of time.
Fig. 5. Is called in Egyptian Enish-go-on-dosh; that is one of the governing planets also; and is said by the Egyptians to be the Sun, and to borrow its light [HC 4:521] from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash, which is the grand Key, or in other words, the governing power which governs fifteen other fixed planets or stars, as also Floese or the Moon, the Earth and the Sun in their annual revolutions. This planet receives its power through the medium of Kli-flos-is-es, or Hah-ko-kau-Beam, the stars represented by numbers 22, and 23. receiving light from the revolutions of Kolob.
Fig 6. Represents this Earth in its four quarters.
Fig 7. Represents God sitting upon his throne, revealing, through the heavens, the grand key words of the Priesthood; as also the sign of the Holy Ghost unto Abraham, in the form of a Dove.
Fig 8. Contains writing that cannot be revealed unto the world; But is to be had in the Holy Temple of God.
Fig 9. Ought not to be revealed at the present time. Fig. 10, Also. Fig. 11. Also— If the world can find out these numbers, So let it be— Amen.
Figures 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 21, will be given in the own due time of the Lord.

17. And the Lord said unto me, the planet which is the lesser light, lesser than that which is to rule the day, even the night, is above, or greater than that upon which thou standest, in point of reckoning, for it moveth in order more slow: this is in order, [p. 1290]
