THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
The Jasper, the Emerald, and the Sardine Stone
And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal.
Saints of the Most High:
I AM he that sat who was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone. The light of the jasper is the golden light of the crown of life unto the one who opens the door of the crown chakra. I AM opening that door within you, and I AM the open door which no man can shut. I AM opening the door of cycles emanating from the great solar rings of the blue causal body of the Great Divine Director.
I AM the golden light of the mind of God, the jasper that is for the building of the wall of the City Foursquare and for the garnishing of the first foundation. Enlightenment is the foundation of the building of the temple in the Aquarian age. Even so is the jasper the stone of victory, the twelfth, set in gold in Aaron’s breastplate of judgment.
Lo, I AM come for the redemption of the Levites and to reestablish the Melchizedekian priesthood that the person of Christ might once again minister unto the people from the tabernacle of the congregation.
I AM the Ancient of Days, standing midst the congregation of the righteous. I AM the cloudy pillar descending at the door of the tabernacle. I AM the open door which no man can shut. Let all the people who worship the Presence of God, I AM, now behold the cloudy pillar that I AM, standing at the tabernacle door. Lo, I AM the door. Let the people rise up and worship–every son and daughter in his own violet-flame tent door.
I AM the Lord thy God speaking unto the messenger face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. I AM engraving the signet HOLINESS TO THE LORD. I AM sealing the forehead of the messenger, sealing the eye as the orifice of Elohim. And it shall always be upon her forehead “bearing the iniquity of the holy things”–the focus of transmutation, transmuting the offering of the children of Israel that it might be acceptable unto the Lord. Thus is the hallowing of the holy gifts by the immaculate vision of Elohim sealed in the all-seeing eye of the messenger that the children of Israel may be accepted before the Lord.
Now let those who will stand as priests and priestesses between the embodied Lamb and the sheep, as Christic mediators between the Guru and the chela, come forth that they might receive the seal of Aaron HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
I AM the jasper stone. Let them come to me who have first put on the sardine stone that I AM, for its ruby red signifies the heart of the initiate whose initiations in the sacred fire are for the mastery of the first element of the Ancient Alchemist, the fire element, and its angels and salamanders in Spirit and in Matter. The sardine is the opening of the door of the heart to the initiation of the Rose Cross. It is the garnishment of the sixth foundation of the wall of the Holy City and the first stone set in gold upon Aaron’s breastplate. Thus it is the beginning of the mysteries of the priesthood and the sixth step in the inner temple initiations.
The pure heart is not enough. It is the accelerated heart that is required, the heart that is on fire for God, ruby red as the blood of Christ–now crucified, now resurrected, now ascended as the blood becomes the golden liquid light of the jasper. I AM the beginning and the ending of the path of initiation which I transfer to you through the Great Guru Lord Maitreya. I AM in the center of the rainbow round about the throne. I AM in the center of the twelve rings of Elohim, whose causal bodies adorn the Nameless One.
Unto the vision of the soul I AM the emerald, the garnishment of the fourth foundation of the Holy City that you individually must build, line upon line, as proof of your path of initiation. And so the emerald, the fourth stone of the breastplate set in gold, and the fourth station of the cross of Christ, is the turning point of the I AM WHO I AM for the initiate.
Your identity, O precious soul jeweled in light, is the revelation that standeth in the door opened in heaven. Let him that beholdeth the emerald of the throne of the Ancient of Days know that by his vision he may enter the halls of that holy science which is Truth, Truth that leadeth to the opening of the seventh seal.
Round about the throne are four and twenty seats of authority whom the Nameless One hath assigned unto twin flames representing the Twelve Hierarchies of the Sun in the masculine and feminine power/wisdom/love of Elohim. Clothed in the white raiment of their Cosmic Christ consciousness, sealed in the rainbow rays of the seven chakras that now blend in the white light, they are identified as the overcomers of systems of worlds by the crowns of gold upon their heads. The Almighty One has ordained his emissaries in a cosmic order of hierarchy to witness unto his Presence–personal/impersonal power in the Great Central Sun and in the flaming yods of the galaxies that procession there about.
The crowns of gold of the Four and Twenty Elders signify that they have become the sardine and the jasper, the ruby and the gold through the emerald of applied science and religion, Spirit and Matter. The lightnings and thunderings and voices which proceed out of the throne are the soundings of the persons of the Trinity as they emit the power (thunderings), the wisdom (voices), and the love (lightnings) of Brahman.
Thus light/energy/consciousness proceed out of the Void and enter the crucible of Brahma/Vishnu/Shiva for the creation and the uncreation of worlds. And the seven lamps of sacred fire burning before the Great Three-in-One are the transformers of the seven Spirits of God, the Elohim who hold the concentrated energies of the Trinity–omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence–for their distribution throughout the formed and unformed planes of Spirit/Matter.
Now behold the sea of glass like unto crystal mingled with sacred fire. The saints will march on this very sea–it is the way Home. It is the way to the center of the AUM. It is the only way. I AM the way. It is the first and the last initiation of the souls of God, their going out and their coming in <1>to the Father/Mother God. And only they shall pass who shall have gotten the victory over the beast and over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name. Only they shall be able to stand on the sea of glass, the crystal-fire mist.
Having the harps of God, they shall sing the song of their Guru Moses, the servant-chela of God, I AM THAT I AM. And they shall sing the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty, thou Three in One; just and true are thy ways, thou Christ incarnate, King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, I AM THAT I AM, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations–the lifewaves dwelling on the twelve planes of consciousness in Matter, fulfilling the cycles of their group karma and dharma–shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”
Lo, I AM the Ancient of Days. I AM the manifest judgment, as above so below. I address the one hundred and forty and four thousand: Enter the meditation of the crystal sea. Enter the meditation of the jasper, the emerald, and the sardine, the first, the fourth, and the sixth stations of the cross of Christ, and prepare for the coming of the Four Cosmic Forces who will initiate you on the Path of the Rose Cross.
I AM in the magnet of the Great Central Sun, releasing into your meditative hearts shafts of light that are for the magnetization of your souls unto the sun center of being. Enter now the shaft, saints of the Most High, and spiral to the center of my heart.
I AM always your
