THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
The Opening of a Door in Heaven
After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Revelation 4:1, 2
Sons and Daughters of the Ancient of Days:
Lo! I AM come. Lo! I AM here in the fullness of the Word made flesh. And behold, a door is opened in heaven. Out of the great sphere of Universal Reality, I AM come.
The door that is opened is the door of the mysteries of the Cosmic Christ.
I send forth the call through Gautama Lord Buddha, Lord of the World and God of the Earth.
I send forth the call through Maitreya Lord Buddha, the first and the last Guru sent by Alpha and Omega, the Father/Mother God, to sound the sound of the trumpet and of seven trumpets unto the hundred and forty and four thousand who are with the Lamb.
I send forth the call through the Lord Jesus the Christ, the one anointed to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. <1>
O Lord, I send forth the call through thy servants the Prophets, and through the saints, and them that fear thy name I AM THAT I AM, small and great.
The opening of the door in heaven beheld by the blessed servant John the Revelator is the opening of the spirit of prophecy unto the New Jerusalem upon the inauguration of the Aquarian age. The New Jerusalem is comprised of all who make up the consciousness of the living Christ in its fourfold, foursquare manifestation. Thus all who are in the Lord’s body on this the day of the Lord’s appearing are called by the sounding of the trumpet of Elohim to “Come up hither, for the Lord’s anointed will show thee things which must be hereafter.”
Come, my beloved, with John into the seven spheres of Spirit and behold the throne, the great three-in-one, that is set in heaven in the white-fire core of the great causal body of God. Come and behold the manifestation of thy Father/Mother God–indeed our Father which art in heaven–who hath appointed unto me the name Ancient of Days and a garment white as snow which is the royal robe of righteousness worn by the priesthood of Melchizedek. As Daniel renewed his covenant with me, O my beloved–even as you also one by one shall renew your covenant with the Ancient of Days–he beheld the consciousness of God emanating from the mind of God and described it as “the hair of his head like the pure wool.”
And the great throne that is the seat of my incarnation is the great three-in-one, the Hebrew triad illustrated in the letter shin. And the Trinity is this: out of the Father and the Mother comes forth the Son crowned with the crown of both individual and cosmic Christhood. And the Father and the Mother are the twin flames of the Holy Spirit, as above so below. Thus the throne beheld by Daniel was like the fiery flame containing the light of Father/Mother, whose witness is the Son and the light of Holy Spirit whose twofold plus/minus polarity is resolved in the unity and the apex of that Son.
Thus he who sits upon the throne is the one to whom all power, wisdom, and love of heaven and earth is given. He is the one who is God incarnate unto the twelve tribes of Israel. For they do represent the twelve gates, or paths of initiation, whereby the lifewaves of a cosmos may enter into communion with the I AM THAT I AM. The I AM THAT I AM is the flaming triad in the center of the City Foursquare. Without the throne, the great three-in-one of the Lord God Almighty, the incarnation of the Word has not dominion. No, neither in heaven nor in earth. But given the throne, he is in the seat of authority and therefore is the one who can open the door twixt heaven and earth and reveal to the children of God the one sent. <2> The one sent is the messenger who stands at the nexus of Life where the sphere of heaven and the sphere of earth meet for the cosmic interchange of God and man.
And always and always they will say, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority? <3> All that I do, all that I speak, and all that I AM is by the authority of the I AM THAT I AM. I AM sent by the living God to call a living people unto the restoration of the temple. I AM come the deliverer of nations, the awakener of the ancient memory of those ancient days inscribed in akasha and known by the lightbearers–you who came with me bearing the taper of the threefold light to earth and her evolutions. Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the book that I hold in my right hand, the book that is sealed with seven seals.
The opening of the door in heaven is the descent of my mantle, my Electronic Presence. This auric emanation and forcefield is lowered to the plane of Gautama at Shamballa, who absorbs, assimilates, and becomes that living Presence that I AM, he being the first ascended chela in the line of the descent of the Gurus from my own anointing to the anointing of your messenger. In sacred ceremony, the Lord of the World transfers the authority of the mantle he has become to the second ascended chela in the line of the descent, Lord Maitreya, seated in the lotus throne in the central altar of Lemuria; for he is the personification of the Lord God who walked and talked with man and woman in the garden of Eden.
Now that blessed Maitreya, mediator of the path of initiation, absorbs, assimilates, and becomes the authority of the Ancient of Days, the dominion of Gautama, and adds to these his unique attainment on the path of chelaship under the Lord God Almighty. Now in the ritual of the anointing of the one sent in the person of Jesus the Christ, Lord Maitreya transfers the transfiguring light of his own triune manifestation of the Word to his chosen chela, the coming servant who has come in whom my soul delighteth, for I have put my spirit upon him that he might bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. <4>
Unto him it is given to wear the three mantles of the trinity who have preceded him. Thus the name of Jesus Christ is called Wonderful, for he embodies the fullness of the wonder of the Woman clothed with the Sun. He is the mother of Israel, gathering souls as a hen gathereth her chickens. <5> He is the Counsellor, the very personal presence of the Guru Lord Maitreya who comes bearing the banner of the Lord which is the banner of the World Mother: the Mother, that Wisdom who teacheth her children. He is The mighty God, the incarnate Holy Ghost, holding the power of the nine–the Trinity multiplied thrice. He is in The everlasting Father as The everlasting Father is in him. Thus, by our threefold mantle, he is known as The Prince of Peace. <6>
He stands in the New Jerusalem and in the City Foursquare. And in the ritual of the passing of the torch of the ages of Pisces unto Aquarius, he anoints the two witnesses unto whom I now give my power. And in the ceremony of the conferment of power, the Four and Twenty Elders, who sit on their seats before me, fall upon their faces and worship God, saying, “We give thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art and wast and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power and hast reigned.”
The Four and Twenty Elders give praise unto the Lord I AM THAT I AM unto the day and unto the night, for the power of God that is delivered unto me this day is a deliverance unto the children of light and the descent from the higher octaves to the lower octaves of the very presence of the person of God through this lineal descent of the mantle. This is the meaning of the opening of the temple of God in heaven whereby I, the Ancient of Days, commissioned as the emissary of God, do stand before you first in the person of Gautama, second in the person of Maitreya, third in the person of Jesus, and fourth in the persons of the two witnesses.
As Daniel saw them, so they stand: the other two–the one, Mark L. Prophet, the Ascended Master Lanello, on this side of the bank of the river holding the crystal sphere of Spirit; and the other, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Mother of the Flame, on that side of the bank of the river holding the amethyst sphere of Matter. <7> Within the center of each sphere is a flame. Thus they hold the balance of the twin flames of the Holy Spirit with which every living soul must be endowed on the path of evolution in Matter leading to the revolution of higher consciousness in Spirit.
When these twin flames are made one in the heart of the initiate through the Guru-chela relationship, then does the declaration sound that the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. The wife of the Lamb is the soul who seeks reunion with God through the marriage to the living Christ. The wife is the chela, the Lamb is the Guru. Who then is the Lamb? The Lamb is the Word who was in the beginning with God without whom was not any thing made that was made. <8> I am in the Lamb and the Lamb is in me, therefore I am the Lamb. Thus saith the Lord, the Ancient of Days.
As the Lamb is in me, so I transfer the light of the Lamb in the descent of this order of hierarchy. As the living God is one, yet three-in-one, so every chela who has become one with the Guru is Guru. And wherever that Guru incarnates, he is known as the Lamb. And the chelas of the Lamb sing a new song, saying,
“Worthy is the Lamb! Worthy is the Lamb! Worthy is the Lamb! Lord God Almighty, thou art worthy to take the book and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
The descent of the Lamb is the inevitable crucifixion of the Lamb, for the Lamb is the Light of the world dark and dense. <9> And when that Light is come, all whose vibration is less than that Light, those who are not called as disciples of that Light to embody that Light, therefore polarize in opposition to the Light which they cannot receive, for they are not called to receive it.
As God is in me and I am in God, so I declare, I and my Father are one. And lo, I have become the Father. And the Father has become the Son through the figure-eight flow that is the design of the plus/minus interchange of Alpha in the Guru and Omega in the chela. Now I am the Father and Gautama is the Son. And as Gautama long ago passed the initiations of the Fatherhood of God, I bequeathed to him my flaming awareness of that Father. And lo, he declared, “I and my Father are one!” And he became the Father and the Father in the Son, the incarnate Word, the embodied Guru, the Lamb.
Then Maitreya, the blessed, the beautiful, the bountiful bodhisattva, beheld the vision of the Buddha and the Buddha beyond the Buddha as my own flaming Presence revealed the parting of veil upon veil, each veil the opening of another door in heaven as his meditation parted the octaves of the first, the second, the third heaven, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh.
Thus he bowed before the gracious Gautama as the Guru who was God because he unveiled to him the God of very gods. And lo, he declared, “I and my Father are one!” as he beheld the infinite succession of the Gurus who bore witness of worlds beyond worlds of the God manifestation. And Maitreya became the pivot point of the path of initiation unto every chela who would know the Guru, unto every soul of the hundred and forty and four thousand who would return to the mystery school of the garden of Eden.
He was the embodied Guru, the Father/Son manifestation unto the twin flames of Adam and Eve and unto their children, my children, sent to earth to demonstrate the path of initiation. By the subtil serpent, Satan’s agent, the Path was set aside unto these twin flames and their offspring for six thousand cycles of life and death until the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the I AM THAT I AM incarnate. He was the embodied Lamb. He was, as Archangel Gabriel has said, the messenger of our flame who became the message.
By his attainment on the path of initiation under his father, Maitreya, he became the Lamb unto the hundred and forty and four thousand. He, too, opened the door in heaven, opening the temple of understanding–yes, my beloved, opening the crown chakra where there is seen the ark of his testament, the scrolls of the living testimony of the Word whence there proceed lightnings, as the sacred fire of the Word, and thunderings, as the sounding of the sound of the Word, and voices, which are the voices of all who are the deliverers of the spoken Word.
Jesus Christ is unto Adam and Eve and all of their spiritual descendants to the very present hour the Saviour who has saved for them the path of initiation which had its beginning on Lemuria and will have its ending on the shores of the Motherland in the Aquarian age. Now the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave the I and my Father are one mantra to all disciples of this Christ manifestation that we are, that I AM, sponsors the two witnesses for the sealing of the servants of our God in their foreheads. And the number of them which are sealed are an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. This is the present work of the two witnesses on earth and in heaven.
These two souls of light, representing Father and Mother to those accelerating on the twelve paths of initiation under Guru Maitreya, are one as the spheres of Spirit and Matter converge, suspended in time and space. Their threefold flames are one, focusing the six-pointed star of David–the rising Mother, the descending Father. Together they chant with the multitudes who stand before the throne–the threefold flame–and before the Lamb, saying, “Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.” They chant the Amen, Amen, Amen. And the chanting of the AUM is heard in the four corners of the heavens and in the four corners of the earth as our two witnesses become the issue of our fiery stream unto the thousands of thousands who minister unto the Lamb and the ten thousand times ten thousand who stand before him. And the angels and the elders and the multitude and the remnant of Israel fall on their faces before the throne and worship God, saying, “Amen: Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.”
Now the twelve tribes and the multitude clothed with white robes and palms in their hands are coming out of the great tribulation of personal and planetary karma. Day by day they are washing their robes, their auric forcefields and their four lower bodies, and making them white–purifying the vehicles of consciousness, fire, air, water, and earth–in the blood, the fiery essence, of the Lamb that flows through the sacred heart of the Guru incarnate.
Now learn the mystery of the Guru. It is the alchemy of the sacred fire that by the body and the blood is redemption come. Physical redemption is the requirement of the Law, therefore the Lamb must be in physical embodiment. But the Lamb is the infinite person of the Son of God, and therefore it is the mantle of the Lamb that must rest upon the shoulders of the anointed one that the people might touch the hem of that garment and be repolarized in the wholeness of Alpha and Omega. Therefore it is written: “He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.”
This mystery of the Holy Grail I, Sanat Kumara, declare to you this day. For I am he that sitteth on the throne in the Form of the Formless One, and I have come to dwell among the white-robed multitudes in the person of my embodied messenger. I come through Gautama. I come through Maitreya. I come through Jesus Christ. And I am come in the person of the two witnesses, who now convey the mantra which they have become–“I and my Father are one.”
Because I am incarnate, I am the Lamb. Because they are myself incarnate they, too, can and shall declare, “I AM the embodied Guru–Lanello, the Ever-Present Guru; Mother, the Guru Ma.” And therefore, because they are with you in Spirit and in Matter, it is written of you, O chelas of the Great White Brotherhood: “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
The question is always asked of the one who wears our mantle, “Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?” And the answer that is given is the witness of the multitudes and the disciples of the things seen and heard–how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and to the poor the gospel is preached. <10> And the one who receives the blessing of the Lamb is the one who is not offended in him. For those who are offended by the Person or the Principle of the Lamb have no part in the resurrection, and therefore they cannot abide in his presence nor are they called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
I AM Sanat Kumara, known from everlasting to everlasting to the followers of God as the Ancient of Days. I AM come, as it was shown unto Daniel, for to give judgment unto the saints of the Most High. These are the white-robed chelas of the Great White Brotherhood who shall now possess the kingdom which is the manifest consciousness of God as it is delivered to them morsel by morsel by the embodied Lamb. And the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and they shall possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
I AM THAT I AM
