In the Mysteries the seven Logi, or Creative Lords, are shown as streams of force issuing from the mouth of the Eternal One. This signifies the spectrum being extracted from the white light of the Supreme Deity.
The seven Creators, or Fabricators, of the inferior spheres were called by the Jews, the Elohim. By the Egyptians they were referred to as the Builders (sometimes as the Governors) and are depicted with great knives in their hands with which they carved the universe from its primordial substance.
Worship of the planets is based upon their acceptation as the cosmic embodiment's of the seven creative attributes of God. The Lords of the planets were described as dwelling within the body of the sun, for the true nature of the sun, being analogous to the white light, contains the seeds of all the tone and color potentiates which it manifests.
Who were the Priest class?
Prior to the Renaissance times, the wisdom schools were all across the known lands of the then world and they were apolitical. The skills of farming and agriculture and the skills of working with fire and metal (metallurgy) were composites of many skills and these seemingly arose hand in hand with the Priest Class.
Priests, Druids, Medicine men, Shamans and Kadiacha were in fact the first scientists. These very special people who were especially chosen were the first metallurgists, and commenced the trade of smelting and blacksmithing (alchemy).On the word Elohim there is so much conjecture around that it is difficult to know who is actually being reasonable here.
They were also the first philosophers. Healing and the arts were universally tied together. These Priest class of people were very special and in no way resemble the preachers, ministers or pastors of the types we see today behind the pulpit. The original priest class were scientists, artisans and spiritual entertainers. They were well versed in Natural Law.
In a view common among both secular scholars and polytheists, the word's plurality is seen as reflective of an early Judaic polytheism. Originally meaning "the gods", or the "sons of El," the supreme being, the word may have been singularized by later monotheist priests who sought to replace worship of the many gods with their own patron god YHWH alone.

The name Mary and Miriam come from the Hebrew word Mayam which means water or even virgin water.
YahwehThe Tetragrammaton (Greek meaning word with four letters) is the usual reference to the Hebrew name for God, which is transliterated from the Hebrew as YHWH -- four consonants with no vowels; it is the distinctive personal name of the God of Israel. The popular vocalized form of YHWH is Yahweh.
Of all the names of God, the one which occurs most frequently is the Tetragrammaton. The Biblia Hebraica texts each contain the Tetragrammaton (YHWH) 6,828 times.
In Judaism, the Tetragrammaton is the ineffable name of God, and is not read aloud. In the reading aloud of the scripture or in prayer, it is replaced with Adonai (Lord). Other written forms such as ד׳ or ה׳ are read as Hashem (the Name), for the same reason.
One theory regarding the disuse of the Tetragrammaton is that the Jewish taboo on its pronunciation was so strong that the original pronunciation may have been lost somewhere in the first millennium.
Since then, many scholars (particularly Christians) have sought to reconstruct its original pronunciation.
For example, circa 1518 Christian theologians introduced the pronunciation Yehovah based on the written form with the vowel pointing for Adonai. This is generally held to be implausible but gave rise to alternate vocalizations such as Jahovah and Jehovah.The theory regarding the disuse of the Tetragrammaton (YHWH) is the result of an interpretation of the Third of the Ten Commandments. The Jewish people stopped saying the Name by the 3rd century out of fear of violating the commandment "You shall not take the name of YHWH your God in vain" (Exodus 20:7).
It is possible that the practice was in effect prior to early Christian times as Jesus prayed to the Father " I have made your name known" (John 17:26).
Tetragrammaton MeaningAccording to one Jewish tradition, the Tetragrammaton is related to the causative form, the imperfect state, of the Hebrew verb הוה (ha·wah, “to be, to become”), meaning “He will cause to become” (usually understood as “He causes to become”).
Another tradition regards the name as coming from three different verb forms sharing the same root YWH, the words HYH haya (היה): “He was”; HWH howê (הוה): “He is”; and YHYH yihiyê (יהיה): “He will be”. This would therefore show that God is timeless and self-existent.
Other interpretations include the name as meaning “I am the One Who Is.” This can be seen in the O. T. biblical account of the “burning bush” commanding Moses to tell the sons of Israel that “I AM (אהיה) has sent you,” (Exodus 3:13–14).
Some suggest, “I AM the One I AM” [אהיה אשר אהיה]. This may also fit the interpretation as “He Causes to Become.” Source: http://www.theopedia.com/yahweh
- The noun עין ('ayin), meaning eye, produces the verb עין ('in), meaning to eye
(1 Samuel 18:9).
- The identical noun עין ('ayin), now meaning spring or fountain, produces the noun מעין (ma'yan), also meaning spring. Source : ABARAM PUBLICATIONS
