THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
Unfolding the Sacred Science
of the Soul’s Acceleration unto God
Sons of God in Christ:
“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” <1>Because ye are sons, ye have the gift of the Threefold Flame of Life within your heart. And because ye have the gift of the Threefold Flame of Life within your spiritual heart which is ‘behind’ your physical heart, God is able to send forth the Spirit of his Son into your heart. Those who have not the Threefold Flame cannot receive the Spirit of the Son, neither can they receive the Spirit of the Father.
How is it that Paul heard the Person of the Son crying, “Abba, Father”? It is because he was the Son of man in whom the Son of God dwelt. He knew intimately the Christ Self and the office of this Son of glory who is within the heart as the Mediator, stepping down the terrible vibrations of “the terrible crystal” that the children of the light might eat the ‘bread’, substance of Life, and live. The Christ Self most holy repeats the name of God I AM THAT I AM, calling upon the Lord day and night. I AM THAT I AM is his name and his Word. Behold the Christ Self, the sustainer of the I AM light, the Shekinah glory, of the Person of the Father in the adopted sons.
The Spirit of the Son is the vital, life-giving principle of the only begotten of God. The Spirit of the Son is the sacred fire breath of exalted Love. The Spirit of the Son is the primal essence of your Godhood. Its descent into the living temple of man is the phenomenon of incorporeal being, the Greater Self, entering into and possessing corporeal being, the lesser self, by the freewill adoption, adaptation, of both the soul and the Father/Mother God. The Spirit of the Son is the activating light, the awakening principle, the quickener from death to Life.
Paul prayed that the saints might walk worthy of the I AM Presence unto all pleasing of his Word, being fruitful, that is, multiplying his Presence, through every good work and increasing in the knowledge of the God Presence. He prayed for their strengthening with all might. It was the Mighty I AM Presence that empowered Paul. He knew it, he saw it, he became it. He saw this glorious power present as the power of the Father. It was his blazing light in the face of a Man Christ Jesus who went before him, city by city, preaching the power of God’s kingdom come suddenly within his temple.
So shall the face of a Man go before you, sons and daughters of the Ruby Ray. My face shall be upon the face of my messenger in the Mother flame as the flying Eagleoccupy, and you shall see the face of Lord Gautama in the Person of the Calfoccupy, and the face of Lord Maitreya in the Person of the Lionoccupy, and the face of Jesus Christ in the Person of the Manoccupy. Do not be surprised. For though I speak figuratively and though the Word of God is hidden in a mystery, yet those who experience it experience it literally and in actuality.
My beloved, I AM unfolding to you the sacred science of the soul’s acceleration unto God. Can the multiple coils of cosmic consciousness be so easily unwound, paragraph upon paragraph? I tell you, nay. Only in your deep meditation and in your longing to fulfill the will of God–so intense as to consume all other longings–can I make known to you what is that distilled essence of the wine of the Spirit, drop by drop.
The ascended masters know the way. Meditation upon their Word leads to the way that I AM. And there is no other foundation that is laid than the Word of Christ for the building of the Great Pyramid, for the building of the Temple Beautiful.
The ascended masters are the ones who have gone before you on the Path of the Ruby Ray. They are the souls who elected in the earth to become quickening spirits, and they accelerated thereby into the light of the I AM THAT I AM. They are the masters who have ascended into the white light because they have accelerated their preordained fiery destiny. They know the way of the adoption of sons. Ask them and they will tell you.
They, too, “speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory.” They who have transcended time and space speak out of the matrix of a transcendent Word. While they were with you they fulfilled their roles as bearers of the image of Christ in the earth. Now they have become the bearers to you of the image of the heavenly. Can you see them? Do you see them? They are your brothers and sisters of the transcendent light. They are the translated into the kingdom, higher consciousness, of his dear Son who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn, the only begotten, the Christ Self of every creature, child, of God.
Enoch was the Son of man because his soul elected through numerous incarnations on this and other starry homes to become the archetype fourfold. He bore the title of Son of man as one who held the office and the mantle of Christ. All things being fulfilled, the Lord took him into the white-fire core of being. I was there in the hour of his ascension. And unto this hour every man, woman, and child upon the planet receives the impetus of that ascension and retains its memory impressed upon his soul.
And the promise of the Lord to every son, to every child and child-man is this: “As I took Enoch, he having fulfilled the Path of the Ruby Cross, so I will take thee unto myself, O my living soul, when thou hast fulfilled the gospel of love foursquare. To love and to love, to love and to love in the name of the Father and the Mother, in the name of the Son and the Holy Spirit–this is the way of the Ruby Ray. Walk ye in it.”
If you would know the qualifications of my way, beloved, study the Word of the one who found the way, became the way, and declared, “I AM the way.” So then read the four gospels of the Four Cosmic Forces and learn the qualifications, all fulfilled in Jesus Christ, of the one who should bear the office of the Son of man coming in the authority of the Son of God. For you must be the righteous servant of the I AM THAT I AM, a preacher and a teacher of the message of your I AM Presence Beloved to the nations, who always appears in the identity of the Christ manifest in you. This Christ is “slain from the foundation of the world” <2>; but because he is slain, your soul shall rise again. His message is rejected by all except the elect sons–those who elect to be the Word, those whom God elects to be the Word.
Did you know, my beloved, that it is not enough for the soul to elect to be God? The Spirit must also elect. These are the two parties, yea, the partners, necessary to the marriage contract. The bridal veil of the soul is the seamless garment, the vestment, your Deathless Solar Body. And by the time that the hour of your ascension has come, you will have woven it, thread by thread, out of the Mother flame rising within you, out of her ascension current. There are some who elect to be God crying, “Lord, Lord,” with their lips while their hearts are far from him.
Enoch saw the Watchers who fell from grace so long ago to tempt the entire human race and to stand in the way of it becoming the I AM Race. Now, in the end times, they cry out for mercy, but no mercy is given. For Enoch, the seventh from Adam, wrote of their history, of their infamy and their judgment; and we will speak of them in a later Pearl. But now be aware that though they cried loudly for mercy and even sought Enoch to intercede for them, the Almighty rejected their persons even as they had rejected the descent of the Person of Christ, the Spirit of the Lord’s Son.
And so it is written in the Book of Life that the Lord God has consistently refused to enter into a covenant of redemption with these Watchers who have tormented the people who dwell in the earth. This is the exercise of God’s own free will to withhold the gift of himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And some have mistakenly declared, through a misunderstanding of Christ’s doctrine, “We have sinned, but God must forgive us.” Beloved, it is clearly written that the seed of the wicked, as the tares sown among the good wheat, are not forgiven, but at the time of the harvest they are harvested by the angels, bound in bundles, and burned in the sacred fire–i.e., returned to the white-fire core of the Great Central Sun for the dissolution of the worlds of non-being, non-identification with the Lion, the Calf, the Man, and the flying Eagle.
Mercy is a gift freely given and freely received. But it is not a right. It is a privilege enjoyed by those who hold covenant with their Maker and communion with the saints. It is a privilege that can be suspended when abused and misused. Do not, then, take the grace of God for granted. For by his free will he may or may not forgive, he may or may not endow those who cry to him, “Lord, Lord,” with the gift of eternal life. Life in its unendingness will move on, my beloved, but the particles in the stream may be created, recreated, or uncreated according to the free will of the Father and his adopted Sons.
The sudden and unexpected coming of the Son of man, as the lightning cometh out of the east and shineth even unto the west, shows the complete independence of Almighty God of the tyranny that an idolatrous generation would impose upon him through their false doctrine and dogma. No, not because souls cry, “Lord, Lord,” repeating scripture over and over again devoid of the Spirit and the meaning, but because he has ordained it shall the Lord, the I AM THAT I AM, whom ye seek suddenly come to his temple. And in that day, you will recognize the messenger of my covenant whom ye delight in as the manifestation of myself.
My messenger prepares my way, but I occupy the temple of my messenger. This, too, is the mystery of the indwelling God. And thus I reveal to you the ownership of the Ancient of Days of all souls in the service of the light. I AM the possessor of God within you. I AM that God within you. By free will are my comings and my goings within your temple.
Sometimes I speak directly to your soul. But often when you do not hear me, I speak my word of love through my messenger because of your own self-condemnation. Then again I speak my rebuke through my messenger because of your self-satisfaction and the meager standards of harmony within your life which are not adequate to contain the full harmony, in all of its wondrous chords, of the covenant of the Law. A veritable symphony of light and sound and color governs the interchange of the soul with the Spirit and the Spirit with the soul, which is always through the Son of God. There is no other way by which the soul can interact with the Spirit except through the Self that is Christ.
I AM come to teach you to be that Christ. I AM the Teacher and the Teaching. I would impart to you the mantle well worn by the masters of the Ruby Ray.
I AM Sanat Kumara. I AM opening a door in the heaven of your own Causal Body. Enter and know the Lord thy God,
I AM THAT I AM
