Abraham saw these things: (1) Saw the stars that they were great. (2) That Kolob was the star that governed the earth and all that is under the order of our system. (3) That Kolob's reckoning is one thousand years for a day. (4) There are many stars near Kolob. (5) That Kolob is after the manner of God. (6) Abraham saw the set times and reckoning of all the stars under the order of Kolob. (7) That reckoning and set times on all these stars are all different. (8) Abraham's eyes were opened, and he saw the things God had made, and the end of them he could not see.

Sirius, the Dog Star, the next is twice that distance away from us. No wonder the planets of each of these stars or suns are not visible to man even with the most powerful telescopes. All fifteen of these suns swing around Kaeevanrash; and there are many of these great Kaeevanrashes in the universe with their suns and galaxies all of which are revolving around the stupendous double star Kliflos and Hahko energized and governed by this double star. The full names of this double star are Kliflosises and Hahkokaubeam, they receive light from Kolob. These two stars are in motion and revolve in an enormous orbit around the massive star called Kolob. This great star Kolob has its twin planet called Oliblish which governs a similar array of stars and planets in another galaxy similar to ours. Kolob is so stupendous that we can hardly visualize it. It revolves on its axis once in a thousand years of our time, which to God is a day. We learn that Kolob holds in its jurisdiction many other lesser stars like Kliflos and Hahko each of which has its Kaeevanrashes, suns and solar systems. Kolob is nearest to the place where God resides. God's planet is the source of all power, energy and glory by which all the smaller planets are governed. There is no space without its planets and no limit to space. There are one hundred million galaxies and each galaxy has at least two to five hundred billion stars. This is almost beyond our comprehension to conceive. The scientists state that if they had more powerful telescopes they could increase their vision and horizon accordingly.

(41) The word Kolob is similar to Kalab, an Arabian name of the Dog star, the largest and brightest of the fixed stars; indeed the Great One, designated the Dog star, Sirius.
