THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
Sufficiency in the Guru
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Eagles Who Gather Together Wheresoever the Body of Christ Is:
The sin of the Israelites was not that they did not receive the Christ in the person of the Guru Moses. Indeed, they received him. They followed him, their Saviour, the promised one, all the way from Egypt where the law had required that they become slaves under Pharaoh that they might receive God incarnate in the slave (chela) Moses. And Moses was a slave of the law, of his calling, of his I AM THAT I AM. But most of all, he was the slave of his people.
He would lay down his life for them that they might live. He was the Lord’s vessel–chosen, initiated, anointed. He was the Guru because he knew how to be the chela of the Great Guru, the Christ Self within his people. And they knew it. They followed him all the way from the land of Egypt, where the second beast had initiated them on the Path of the Rose Cross through the mask of their taskmasters, where building towers for Pharaoh they learned to make bricks without straw for the building of the temple of the inner man.
Yoked like dumb oxen to the treadmill, they shared the crucifixion of the Calf that they might know him in his glory. And when the promised one came, they followed him out of the land of death through forty cycles of initiation in the Sinai wilderness to the gate of the Promised Land where, in future generations, those who kept the image of the throne would behold the resurrection of the Lamb, their future Guru incarnate.
No, the sin of the Israelites was not that they did not receive I AM THAT I AM as the personal presence of God who delivered them through the hand of Moses, even as the Father was in the Son. Indeed, the Israelites knew their God. They called upon his name. And so long as they kept his name sealed in their hearts, spoken from their lips, YOD HE VAU HE, that Lord was with them. But when they ceased to preserve that name a memorial unto all generations, the name that is for ever, they no longer knew his personal presence within the temple of being but relied instead upon the secondary source, the priesthood of the Levites. But this they did not unto themselves, but it was done unto them in succeeding generations.
What, then, was the sin of the Israelites who had received both the one sent, their Guru, and his God? It was this, my beloved. Their sufficiency was not in the Guru. In his presence or in his absence, the true chela knows that the grace of the Guru is sufficient for him. The Guru’s consciousness, his ever-present Person, his energy available on command in the name of Christ, supplieth every need. But they liked his personality when he met their human demands, and they disliked it when he did not. This is the ultimate test of the chela. It must come to every one.
Moreover, it was the sin of the Israelites not to declare their sufficiency in the I AM Presence. Then as today, they go a whoring after other gods, other sources of pleasure, psychic thralldom, manipulation of energy, sexual perversions, lust for spiritual and material power, and the inducing of altered states of consciousness by chemical means and diabolical worship. Not finding their sufficiency in their Guru or his God, they failed utterly to find their sufficiency in their own inner Christ, their own inner Self.
Thus it came to pass that the path of chelaship under the lineal descent of the patriarchs, the prophets, and the kings which the Lord God sent to them was likewise no longer their sufficiency. So it is written in the law: Without obedience to the Guru, the chela has no right to the teachings of the Guru.
So it was done by Moses. And the wrath of God descended through him and he broke the two tables of testimony, tables of stone written with the finger of God. Out of the mouth of God the Word was spoken and to the mouth of God that Word returned, for it found no biding place in the hearts of the people. The chelas had failed the first initiation on the Path of the Rose Cross: the sacrifice of the Lion of the tribe of Juda–the sacrifice of the self (the soul) unto the Self (the I AM Presence personified in the Guru).
The law required that they transmute the energy misqualified. And so Moses “took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.” And unto the sons of Levi who gathered themselves together unto the Guru Moses and his I AM THAT I AM, it was given to slay the human ego of brother, companion, and neighbor. These children of the light must prove that the death of the lesser self is swallowed up in the victory of the resurrected Christ. <1>
But with all of this–and the ‘slaying’ of the three thousand–yet it was required that the Guru make ‘an atonement’ for the sins of his chelas. And it is ever thus. The Guru who has balanced his personal karma–all but a small portion to keep him in embodiment–the Guru that holds the balance of planetary karma must yet go about balancing the karma of his chelas. But the I AM THAT I AM who personified the law would not lay the sin of the chelas unto the Guru, for the Guru Moses was blameless before his chelas and before his God.
Thus the Lord charged each individual chela with the full burden of his word and his work: “Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.” But the karma of the remainder of the children of Israel was set aside. And the Lord sent his Archangel, Michael, to go before Moses to bring him to the land promised unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
O children of the light, you were the remnant preserved, the seed of Abraham that became the seed of the twelve tribes of the sons of Jacob. And all of the Lord’s promises hath he fulfilled. And now the hour is come which Moses foreknew–the day when the Lord would visit the sin of the people upon them. Now the Lord God requires the balancing of the sin of disobedience to the Guru and the sin of the soul’s avowed sufficiency unto itself instead of unto the living Word.
Now all the earth trembles in the midst of the Dark Cycle, reeling against the returning karma of their affront to the Godhead. He sent his messenger and, lo, they did not heed him! But unto the children of the light who have waited for the day when they might prove their victory over this beast of self-idolatry, the Dark Cycle of their returning karma is the sign of their imminent victory in Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ in the person of every ascended master who will once again walk and talk with his chelas as did Guru Maitreya in the garden of Eden. Now with full God-determination and empowered by the Holy Ghost, they will get the victory over the image of the beast which he has impressed upon their very souls in the place of the image of the Guru, and over his warped engram stamped on the seat-of-the-soul chakra to thwart the archetype of the Christ in their genes and chromosomes, and over the number of his name, 666, which is the perversion of the number of the third beast who had a face as a man. Yes, now is the victory unto the children of the light.
And the initiation of the chelas of the light in the ruby cube by the Four Cosmic Forces is the promised sign of the victory. For in the initiation of Guru Maitreya is the key to the undoing of that which was done. So is the sign given in the coming of the two witnesses authorized by God to write again with the finger of God that which he wrote on two tables of testimony. These original writings were actually the mysteries of the Path of the Rose Cross which were withdrawn because some among the chelas were the spoilers. But in the day of the Lord’s visitation he will raise his right hand against the spoilers and they shall no longer have power to thwart the divine plan in its imminent descent from the great blue causal body of the Great Divine Director–the living sponsor of the twelve tribes and of their Prophet, Samuel, and of their Messiah, Christ Jesus.
When, in the first instance, Moses was in Mount Sinai forty days and forty nights, the Lord gave to him two stone tablets and the law and commandments which he himself wrote upon them. But when he came in the second instance, Moses was required to bring his own tablets; and he was there with the incarnation of the I AM THAT I AM forty days and forty nights, neither eating bread nor drinking water; and he himself was required to write upon the tables the words of the covenant, only the Ten Words which have come down to you as the Ten Commandments.
But the law of the ruby ray and the mysteries of the lion, the calf, the image of the man, and the flying eagle which Ezekiel also was allowed to see as the archetypes of the Four Cosmic Forces–these were not recorded in the second instance, for only the Ten Commandments were given for a stiffnecked people. Nevertheless, by the intercession of the Guru Moses who found grace in His sight, the I AM THAT I AM set forth his promise “My Presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” And Moses answered the Lord, “If thy Presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.” And the I AM THAT I AM set his seal, saying, “I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken.”
And so it came to pass that the Lord God manifested himself in a great cloud that covered the tent of the congregation, and the Shekinah glory of the Almighty I AM Presence filled the tabernacle where the tablets of the Ten Commandments were kept in the ark. And while the cloud abode on the tent of the congregation and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle, Moses was not able to enter. And the I AM THAT I AM fulfilled the promise to be in the midst of his people.
And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys. But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. And the cloud of the I AM Presence was upon the tabernacle by day, and the sacred fire burned over it by night in full view of all of the house of Israel throughout all of their journeys.
Now is the hour of the return of the presence of the Flaming One to the tabernacle of the Lord and to the tent of the congregation. Now is the hour of the descent of the sacred fire into the tablets of the law sealed within the ark, burning in the midst of the mercy seat, guarded by real and living covering cherubim who hold within their hearts the Alpha/Omega spirals of the initiations on the Path of the Rose Cross.
Thus is the sign given in the coming of the two witnesses to whom it is given once again to write down the mysteries of the ruby cube. Some of these mysteries I, the Ancient of Days, will seal within these pages of the Pearls of Wisdom, but others of these mysteries I will seal only in the hearts of my chelas through the personal initiation of the ruby ray which I will release directly through the prepared heart chalice of our messenger.
In the first forty-day initiation cycle of Moses, I transferred to him the law of Alpha; and in the second cycle of forty, I transferred to him the grace of Omega. Now that which I have long waited to deliver unto my children may be delivered, for the hour of the judgment is come and the karma of the righteous returneth swiftly as an arrow to be consumed by my sacred fire which I, the Lord thy God, hath placed as the wheels within wheels of the chakras of my chelas.
And their sins shall be no more, for that portion of myself which I have placed within them is the sufficiency unto their payment of the last farthing. And the law shall be satisfied, every jot and tittle. And unto the unrighteous shall their karma also return, swift as an arrow, for they have not worshiped me nor paid homage to my name nor to my Word; therefore the acceleration of their sin will be for the canceling out of their soul’s opportunity to repent and be saved.
So will the spoilers be no more, and the seed of the wicked shall be separated from the seed of the Word. And the children of God who are on the side of the I AM THAT I AM will at last know in peace the mysteries of the ruby ray.
I AM the Ancient of Days. I AM THAT I AM.
I AM worthy to receive glory and honour and power: for I AM the immortal Guru of the immortal chelas, and I have created all things, and for my pleasure in the I AM THAT I AM they are and were created.
I AM the living flame midst the tabernacle and the cloudy pillar.
