THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
The Psychology of the Devils
Who Also Believe and Tremble
And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.
To the Blessed Who Pursue the Signs of the Word and Work
of the Holy Spirit in the Four Quadrants of the Matter Sphere:
I AM here! And I have somewhat to say to thee concerning the sign of the casting out of devils.
To you who are the counselors, teachers, pastors, therapist, father, mother, or simply good neighbor to the soul obsessed, to the soul possessed, I say, Love enough! Love God enough to tarry with that one until we have done with the arrogant alter ego and God be magnified within the temple!
Yes, I say, love that soul enough as though it were a fragile blue egg held in the hand in spring, waiting for the robin to emerge and sing. The heartbeat of the little bird held in the hand is the heartbeat of a soul! By the Holy Spirit and by that Spirit only, cast out the devils, I say, and command that soul: “Be thou made whole!”
Be firm with the demons of self-deception that peer and peep out from behind that soul with the weakened identity–weakened from abuse, perhaps, and self-abuse at that. But all of life is fragile until the heartbeat of the little bird nestles in the heartbeat of God and at last knows an identity greater than its own–that indeed is its own. O my beloved who love, be willing to atone for the fragmented lives and their ignorant self-fragmentation through the ignorant misuse of life and love.
Patients preparing for surgery whose constitutions are wanting are required by their physicians to strengthen the body for what amounts to crisis when masses of tissue or tumor must be carefully removed. So it is with souls whose self-awareness is not strong, who do not as yet understand where they belong in the scheme of things twixt heaven and earth and know not their relative position to the stars, to friend or foe, nor do they know the meaning of self-worth.
Often those who have had little or no reinforcement of self-will or self-esteem or true love that cares very much cannot easily distinguish between the possessing demon and the self. There are benign entities just as there are benign tumors. These entities, chameleonlike, assume the posture and the pose of the undeveloped soul and mirror in gray tones an already disintegrating identity. Thus to remove the entity before the soul discovers true Selfhood in the I AM THAT I AM can create calamity resulting in a condition of catalepsy within the astral body where the entity resides and whence it must be cast out.
Thus we recommend the positive approach of the building up of the person that is capable of inviting the Person of the Son of God into his temple. We point out that early childhood training, school, and family environment are most essential in setting the foundation for a strong self-awareness–an ego, if you will, but an ego not self-limiting but always in the process of Self-merging. The child must know that he is important, but that he is important because he is a soul, a moving stream of consciousness in and of God.
Not the pride of the ego, but a joyous self-expression and creative self-fulfillment build confidence and place it where it must be placed–in the indwelling Godhead. This true Self is known by the soul who is taught by loving parents to esteem the search and to accept the validity of the self entering a path of self-discovery. This path, at once spiritual and material, may include every creative, educational, and recreational outlet which contributes to the building of the spiral of individuality–the veritable flame of Selfhood braced by the four sides of the Great Matter Pyramid.
Sometimes we find conditions of psychology relating to previous incarnations wherein the soul has receded, as it were, into a coma; and that which is the dominating force within the temple is but a collection of stray entities which objectivize rigid demands made upon the outer personality in the formative years. Multifragmented personalities consist of multipurposed entities magnetized by the outer mind to piece together a composite self that meets the demands of society and persons of authority it has encountered.
The entire process of outer ego-building, when it takes place under the pressures of mechanization man, often forces the delicate, sensitive, and highly-evolved soul into recession within the subconscious while a completely pseudoself develops a synthetic existence and appears totally adjusted within the present civilization.
Come the preachers endued with the power of the Word! Come the preachers who believe and are baptized! Come the saints endued with the mantle and the authority of the Lamb! To such as these they speak the thundering word of Truth. Let the outer self tremble! The Guru is in the process of calling the inner chela from the depths that it might emerge to the surface of consciousness and have the courage to be and to pursue Be-ness in this life. Comes the chela who loves enough to perceive a real and living person beyond the rings of fabricated unreality. Comes the chela who has the wisdom to know that before the outer shell can be broken down, the hidden man of the heart, the veritable image of the Christ, must be addressed and entreated on behalf of the soul that is the potential to realize Godhood–Think of it!–in this very incarnation.
There is a starting point for the calling forth of the soul from the tombs where the discarnates dwell. Love is the starting point, love is the middle way, and love is the ending point by a song, by laughter, by a poem or the music of the spheres, by the loud cry of the Master, “O soul, come forth from the tomb and live!” by friendship, by compassion. Yes, by some and all of these and more, the soul may be nurtured from sickness unto health. But always it is the wisdom of the disciple to accompany this work of the Holy Spirit with fervent prayer, deep meditation, and extensive dynamic decrees on behalf of the soul who must truly be born again before it can see the kingdom of God.
This born-again experience is a complete reorientation of consciousness, not a rearrangement of entities as is so often the case with those who are overly simplistic, unrealistically optimistic, and unsound in their approach to the science of the Holy Spirit. Such absence of professionalism that often marks those who profess to cast out devils often leads to a surface surcease from symptoms while the deep and underlying conditions of consciousness are not even penetrated.
Many criminals, once caught, have witnessed to the born-again experience. A number of these are genuine conversions by the power of the Holy Ghost, but many more are an expression of the tremendous fear and trembling of the demons who enter the vacated temples of souls bound in a hellish astral nightmare. Then it is the demons who cry out from these haunted houses, “Lord, Lord!” and, for fear of exorcism or even the incarceration or the execution of their subject, submit to a form of religion and a form of conversion merely as a device for their self-perpetuation.
The demons which run in packs like hungry wolves (whose name is Legion, for they are many) coming to the fore and then receding with the tides of the astral body and the lunar influences, may run the gamut from omnipotence to impotence, from arrogance and anger to self-pity and acute melancholy, causing the subject to engage in unexplainable weeping, punctuated by fits of highs and lows, ending in miserable depressions. Considering that the demons and entities (who themselves have no identity except the vehicles of their subjects) have various modes of self-expression characterized by addictions of drugs, alcohol, nicotine, sugar, marijuana, sloth, sensuality, and every enslaving human habit, it is not surprising that the pseudoself of the “lost soul” becomes highly defensive of the modus operandi of its own entities.
What these entities fear most is the coming of the Lamb and the servants of the Lamb and the coming into the temple, swiftly and suddenly, of the Person of the Christ Self who will then cast them out–they know–and summarily call forth the soul from the depths of unreality to face the responsibility of life in God. Therefore the one who comes in the name of the Lamb will always run the risk of inciting the anger of the entities who are to be bound as well as the resistance of the soul that does not want to be disturbed in its sleep of death.
Add to this the anger of parents, friends, and so-called loved ones who themselves exist within the four walls of the death consciousness (who have sought ego reinforcement from these about-to-be-awakened ones to whom they are related in time and space) and you will begin to understand the sinister stranglehold, the awful mesmerism that must be broken by the sudden snapping of the lightning mind of God which swoops down as a mighty eagle to gather up the infant self and soar to the safety of the Rock. Is it any wonder that the Saviour of souls declared in the presence of the hellish Adversary:
Think not that I AM come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
For I AM come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
These foes are for the most part not the persons themselves but the possessing entities with which they often entirely identify and which would, if allowed, divide and conquer the entire family. Therefore is divorce and division rampant as the fallen ones attempt to destroy the souls of my little ones as they would destroy the flame of family.
Understand, then, the Initiation of the South Gate and the Person of the flying Eagle that I AM. Understand the mission of the Mother, my counterpart, who as a she-wolf protects her cubs with the fiery white wrath of God.
The five signs that follow them that believe in the Lamb and are baptized in the Lamb are the signs of the Woman’s appearing–the Woman who is the bride of the Holy Spirit, the daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Son. Hence the ability of the advancing chela to cast out devils, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, drink any deadly thing, and lay hands on the sick on the west gate is directly dependent upon the interaction with the Mother flame and the Mother flame within the embodied Guru who stands on the south gate.
Mother Mary has offered herself a living sacrifice to hold the balance, for life and in life, of the intensity of the Mother flame while bearing in her very person and in her Immaculate Heart the anti-Mother momentum of the angry hordes who see the Mother coming and despise her unto the death. These despisers of the Mother are virulent and vicious discarnates who have succeeded in penetrating the consciousness of those who consider themselves to be fervent in the rituals of their religion. Nevertheless, by a false indoctrination of the false pastors, those who have not yet drunk the full cup of Christ experience an unexplainable anxiety and apprehension in the face of the ascended masters, the true teachers, and the true teachings of Christ which they are delivering to the devotees of truth.
Let the Truth be known! This abnormal apprehension is but the trembling of possessing demons and household entities who fear the ultimate fear–their extinguishment by the burning and the shining light of the Lamb within his servants.
Without the action of the mighty circle and sword of the Elohim Astrea, the sword of Archangel Michael, and El Morya’s Excalibur, those well-meaning relatives, who would otherwise welcome the truth of the Holy Spirit in their heart of hearts, often take up the cause of raging demons and in the process lose all credibility with their loved ones on the Path because of their irrational rantings and ravings. My dears, these can be explained only as the raging of the Serpent–not of the soul–seeking to devour the one possessed of it before it is itself devoured by the oncoming Light. Unfortunately, many innocent souls become the innocent victims in the cross fire of this battle of Armageddon in the midst of all of this nonawareness of who is who.
With the prophecies coming to pass, “And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved,” the sane voice of the Keeper of the Flame who dares to love enough invokes the Word. And by the Word he casts out the tormenting devils. My beloved, without this service rendered by the few on behalf of the many, it would not be possible for the Great White Brotherhood to bring in the golden age or even to transfer this teaching heart to heart to the peoples of this planet.
So great is the fear of these foul spirits created by the Luciferians that they can be likened only to mad dogs or wild boars stampeding towards some undefined finale. Instantaneously, in answer to your call made in the name of Jesus Christ unto the hosts of the Lord–chiefly Archangel Michael and mighty Astrea–tens, hundreds, thousands, and tens of thousands of these roving demons are bound by the angels of the Lord and cast into the lake of fire where their form and ferocity is utterly consumed, nevermore to return.
If you stop and consider the state of consciousness of the planetary body, you will realize that the conditions of earth are due to unseen forms and forcefields motivating otherwise sane men and women to an unexplainable madness. Even the leaders of peoples and nations make their moves on the international chessboard calculated toward self-destruction and the destruction of their nations. Such decision making by the blind leaders of the blind can be explained only by the presence of the subtleties of obsessive and possessive demons.
The holy family is the foundation of life on earth and the key to love in well-adjusted children who fear neither the challenges of living the abundant life in this octave, nor of their karma/dharma, nor of the astral beasts of prey or disguised devils. The love of family is the love for God within each member as each one occupies with reverence and honor his appointed office of Father, Mother, son and daughter.
But take care that in your caring for one another you do not enter into the mesmerism of idolatry wherein the possessive love of persons becomes greater than your love for Christ within the pure sons and daughters of God. For this is the test of the Rose Cross: “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
The honor of the soul’s allegiance to Truth can be sustained only within the true family relationship set upon the rock of the will of God in Christ Jesus. Though he loved his own as his own and fulfilled the law of Moses, he lit a flame for the expanded God consciousness of the family to include the doers of the will of the I AM Presence and thereby excluded all who are not doers of that will from the disciples’ circle of responsibility:
There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
Children of the light, if you would rise to defend your nation, your community, your family, and your own Selfhood, take up the cross of the Ruby Ray and determine with the full intensity of your conscious being to here and now contact your superconscious Selfhood, the beloved I AM Presence, and become who you really are so that you may spend the rest of your life helping the dear souls of this dear planet–all of whom are your dear family–to become who they really are by free will, free from the influences of the marauding bands of dark ones posing as angels of light. Remember, oh, remember the words given to you for this your hour of decision to be the Real Self in the very midst of multiplied unreality:
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it....
And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Not in the ties of flesh and blood but in the ties of souls who in love are the Body of God on earth is found the inheritance of the Kingdom of God. Thus he walked the Path of the Rose Cross not of the flesh but of the Spirit. Go and do thou likewise.
My beloved, there is no condition or circumstance, however depraved or despondent, that cannot be changed by God through the living saint who follows the Lamb in the way of surrender, sacrifice, service, and selflessness–so long as he proceeds with a right heart out of the love of the Holy Spirit for souls in distress, held in the death grip of unseen devils. Let the saints who understand the source of that love in the Lamb, and themselves as extensions of his Person, rise to the larger dimensions of family responsibility and go forth to do battle for the life of the children of God.
Soldiers of Christ, soldiers of the Ruby Cross, I enlist your service under the banner of Maitreya in the most demanding and the most rewarding service of the Lamb.
In the name of Jesus Christ and by the love of the one sent I say, Cast out devils! Cast these enemies of the Light out of every household! Cast them out of the soul, the mind, the astral sheath, out of the memory, and from the folds of the garment tattered of the stranger at thy gate.
I read to you a line from the seven-sealed book:

the sick, and the sinner.”
