THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
The Commission of the Lord
to the Prophets and the Saints
And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.
And the Spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day....
And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God.
And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them....
And thou shalt speak my words unto them,...
But thou, Son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.
So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them
Ezekiel 2, 3
My Beloved in the Presence Which I AM:
The commission begins with the appearance of the I AM Presence. This appearance of the Lord God Almighty unto the living soul is the anointing of consciousness with the precious oil of God-reality. It is an infusion of power for the soul’s fusion with the Spirit. It is an infusion of wisdom direct, by the hand of the angel of the Lord’s Presence, sent unto the prophets and the saints, having therein “a roll of a book.”
Therefore, ye saints of the Ruby Ray, open thy mouth and eat the roll that is written within and without. And cause thy belly to eat it and fill thy bowels with it. And it shall be in thy mouth as honey for sweetness. Thus is the appearance of the I AM Presence unto the soul for the soul’s assimilation of the teachings of the ascended masters within the seven chakras–the wheels within wheels of the Law.
The roll is a scroll of the Law. And of the “lamentations” of the Lord’s prophet that the people have disobeyed his Word. And of the “mourning” of them that wail in vain without the walled City of Light: for the Lord of Sabaoth, deliverer of the Karma, draweth nigh. And of the “Woe!” spoken by the Son as the descending judgment of words and deeds.
O sons and daughters of God, when the hand of my servant whom I have sent unto thee spreads before thee the roll of the book of the Law, do not reject it. For in rejecting the book of the Law is the rejection not only of the Teacher and the teaching but also of the path of initiation under the Ruby Ray.
The same book of the Ancient of Days is held in the hand of the Mother of Exiles who is portrayed in the Statue of Liberty. Great Goddess she stands on the east gate of the City Foursquare proclaiming unto the pilgrims of light: “I AM the open door of cosmic consciousness unto the sons and daughters of the Ancient of Days!” Her torch is the sign of the “fire infolding itself,” fiery vortex of the Beloved, the individualized I AM Presence, whose color of ‘amber’ is the golden pink glow-ray of wisdom and love emitting from the first and second ‘rings’ of the Causal Body into which the living soul is initiated on the Path of the Ruby Ray.
And the mission begins with the appearance of the Woman, Liberty, clothed with the sun and having the crown of twelve stars. She is the Great Guru Mother to the tribes of Israel who will know her in the flying eagle even as they will know the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as the lion, the man, and the calf. The appearance of the archetypes of being–the Four Cosmic Forces surrounding the I AM Presence–must come to each son and daughter of God who begins the mission of the Rose Cross. And it will come–surely it will come–by the crystal clear stream of our Mother’s consciousness who is even now giving birth to the Manchild, the Christ consciousness, within you.
Therefore I AM come, the Ancient of Days. I send to you the hand of my messenger and in her hand the book sealed with seven seals. I AM the Lamb who shall open the book. Reject me not. Neither reject my coming in the person of Gautama, of Maitreya, of Jesus, and of the two witnesses and the saints who carry my torch even as their Mother carries the torch–who shall wear my crown, even as their Mother wears my crown.
First we deal with the ‘belly’, the solar plexus, or dwelling place of the Son of Righteousness. This is the orifice of the desire body. First things first: Let the desire body be purged by the meditation of the living soul upon the book of the Law. Second, we deal with the ‘bowels’, the seat-of-the-soul chakra. This is the orifice of the soul’s self-awareness which we call ‘solar awareness’. Let it be filled with all of the mysteries of God that I have sent by my ‘Angel’ of the Seventh Ray, Saint Germain.
Now, chelas of the Ruby Ray, let all of thy desiring be to fill thy days and thy nights–the Alpha and the Omega of the T’ai chi in the solar plexus–with the desiring of God. And let thy free will be to choose to ensoul within thy living soul and within thy mental body, mind/consciousness, the sayings of the Lord. These sayings of the I AM THAT I AM are sponsored by the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood through Saint Germain, the Son of man unto the Aquarian age. Thus the appearance of your own beloved I AM Presence and your assimilation of the ‘body’ and the ‘blood’ of the living Word communicated to you by the ascended masters through their messengers is the order of the day of your mission to the multitudes which you shall perform, my beloved, on the Path of the Ruby Ray.
Unto your living souls, O children of God, the Lord hath sent the quickening Spirit of his Son into your hearts. When you, child-man, determine to exercise your prerogative as the heir of God, you may become by freewill election the Manchild through this Spirit of the Son who is sealed in your hearts. This Lord from heaven is the inner man, the second man. Until you enter in to the bridal chamber, the secret chamber of the heart, you are still the first man, the outer man, the mere potential of that which is to come. Yet is not the potential the God aborning, the sleeping Buddha, the silent Mother?
The living soul may choose to live as the natural man fulfilling the desires of the natural body. Or it may choose to live as the spiritual man fulfilling the desires of the spiritual body of God.
The Path of the Ruby Ray is the path of free will. It is the free will of the Father and the Son to give unto the living soul of the child his lawful inheritance of the Person of Christ. This Person is to the soul its own Christ consciousness, its own Christ Self. By this act of free will, the Father and the Son choose to ‘adopt’ the soul, to make it the lawful and rightful heir of the kingdom of God–the possessor of his consciousness of Power, Wisdom, and Love. This adoption by the alchemy of the Holy Spirit becomes the adaptation of the soul, its transmutation into the quickened and quickening Spirit.
The Path of the Ruby Ray is the path of the free will of the child/servant to adopt the Father and the Son as its very own Selfhood, to put on the vestments of the Lord from heaven and thereby to share with him the full glory of the heir/Son. Therefore the soul is no longer the child-man but the Manchild. He is the Son of man and he is ready to be called of the Lord to his commission as Watchman of the Word. His acceptance of this commission allows him to begin the path of initiation whereby the “Sun behind the sun,” (the Son of God (+) behind the Son of man (-)) will ultimately dwell in him ‘bodily’ (in form and in formlessness). And the triangle of Spirit and the triangle of Matter will be congruent in time and space and in eternity.
The Son of man Jesus, in whom the Son of God, the Christ, was incarnate, fulfilled the office of the Lamb who gives the promise of the initiation of the indwelling Trinity to his disciples saying, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.”
This Son of man confirmed my commission given unto me by the Nameless One on behalf of every living soul who should exercise its option to be the quickening Spirit. This commission is the transfer of the Holy Spirit from the Father, by (through) the Son, unto the disciples of the Word Incarnate, East and West. This office and the officeholder, this mantle and the mantle-wearer, is the authority for the transfer of the Trinity. And the exercise of the office is by Christ discrimination. Understand, then, my beloved, that the fullness of the office of the Son of God was upon the Son of man Jesus in the final hours of his victorious embodiment when he declared:
“The Comforter, the Holy Spirit of Truth whom ye know–because I have chosen you and you have chosen me and thereby We Are One–dwelleth with you and shall be in you.” These words could be spoken only by the One anointed to enter the soul as the Son, by the leave of the Father, there to invoke the Holy Ghost as the Person of ultimate Truth and Comfort to the soul.
That Jesus knew whereof he spoke–by the authority of my Word vouchsafed to him–is clear in several passages of Scripture:
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I AM in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him....
If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. <1>
When the Son of man Jesus prayed to me, the Ancient of Days, as I was and as I AM the holder of the office of the Person of the Father (a term that is synonymous with the Person of God as the Great Guru), he acknowledged my commission as the Lamb <2>which I had transferred to him in the order of the lineal descent of hierarchy. And he always addressed me through the ascending spiral of the Christ and the Buddha, Lord Maitreya and Lord Gautama. This acknowledgment of hierarchy and his loving allegiance to the immortal Gurus who preceded him was not limiting; on the contrary, it gave to the Son of man unlimited access to the manifest Son of God in Maitreya, in Gautama, and, through them, in all of the hosts of heaven. Thus by the chain of God-free being “a door was opened in heaven.” By that door he received the all-Power/Wisdom/Love of the Lord God Almighty. He then lifted up his eyes to heaven and offered the Prayer of Intercession which only the incarnate Lamb can give:
Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: as thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I AM glorified in them.
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one is us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them [I have initiated them in the light/energy/consciousness of my I AM Presence]; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I AM; that they may behold my glory [the magnitude of my I AM Presence], which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
And I have declared unto them thy name [I AM THAT I AM] and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. <3>
It is evident in these living words of Christ that the predestination of the adoption of sons is foreordained. It is the foreordained freedom of the Father in the Son to surrender Itself through the Holy Spirit to the soul. And it is the foreordained freedom of the soul to surrender itself to the Holy Spirit by the Father in the Son and by the Son in the Father. When that which is above and that which is below exercise this free will simultaneously, Creator and creation are ‘no more twain, but one flesh’. <4> That ‘One’ is then called the Son of man.
The Son of man is this One in whom the Son of God, the Light of the Shekinah shining in all its resplendent glory, is indwelling in manifestation. Wearing the mantle of the Son of God, then, the Son of man is also the manifest ‘Presence’ of the Fatherhood of God and of his Holy Spirit. His declaration of being to the disciples worlds without end thus remains, as I have told you, to the present hour: “I and my Father are One.” <5> This is the mantra of the true Guru-chela relationship establishing you as a connecting link in the eternal chain of Self-transcending being. By its use you, O Son of man, are daily integrating your solar awareness with the Son of God (your Christ awareness) who is verily the Great Integrator–the integrating Principle of the Threefold Flame of your Life–integrating your soul with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
The declaration of the indwelling Presence in the Son of man Jesus was heard by Peter, James, and John as the voice that spoke out of the Cloud (the dwelling place of the Lord) saying, “This is my beloved Son in whom I AM manifesting my transfiguring sacred fire, in whom I AM in manifestation well pleased.” <6>Where heaven and earth meet in the sacred heart of the Son, the disciples of the Christ witness the alchemical marriage of the soul and the Spirit of their Lord and Master–“...that the world may know that thou hast sent me.” Behold the Lamb, the Word Incarnate, who is become the archetype of the four living creatures! Behold, “I and my Father (my Guru) are One.”
As the wayshower of the Path of the Ruby Ray whereby the soul is fused with the Christ Person, this quickening Spirit becomes the forerunner of the Aquarian age. Aquarius! The prophesied epoch of the habitation of the earth by the few and then the many quickening Spirits who reveal to the multitudes the Person of Christ as THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, <7>the indwelling Christ Self. This, my beloved, is your mission to the multitudes which you shall accomplish by the example of your words and your works.
You, as Sons of man, heirs of God consciousness through Christ, are called to be representatives of me in every nation. Fused with the Christ, infused with the light of the Ruby Ray from my heart, I initiate you into the spiritual body of God. Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth with Light. You who make your lawful choice to be bearers of the image of the heavenly, I send you forth as quickening Spirits unto the multitudes. Now ensoul the kingdom of God, his consciousness come, for thereby you shall be called the I AM race.
Such an one was Ezekiel, the forerunner of your calling. Therefore, my sons and daughters, go and be as he was, Prophet of the Lord, Watchman of the Word unto the house of Israel, visionary and revelator of the Shekinah glory and the Four Cosmic Forces representative of the four types of the Christ Person.
I come again to reveal the way of the sacred science of the Mother whereby you, the quickened and the quickening Spirits, shall embody the four faces of Christ.
