The Taking Up of Serpents



           He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

            And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

            And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

            Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the Enemy:  and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

            Notwithstanding in this rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.


Luke 10

Beloved Followers of the Lamb Ever Mounting the Mount Sion:

I AM preparing your consciousness for the opening of the seven seals of the book which I hold in my right hand, the book that is written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

The query of the strong angel with the loud voice must be answered in every age, “Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?”  I come to establish the worthy in the worthiness of the Lamb by the path of Self worth.

The path of Self worth is the path of the initiates of the Ruby Ray. Now I proclaim unto the hosts of the seven holy Kumaras,


“Establish thou it!
In the heart of the earth, in the heart of the Mother,
In the heart of the Maitreya Guru seated in the golden lotus
In the center of the community of my disciples.
Establish thou it!
As the cosmic highways grow
And the ruby rivers flow–
Establish thou it as above so below!”

Now let the surefooted learn to take up serpents
By the Ruby Ray of the Compassionate One,
By the piercing light of illumination’s day
Emanating from the heart of the Beautiful One,
By the splendor of the Shining One,
By the indomitable will of the Holy of Holies,
By the unquenchable sacred fire of the God from the Sun.

   Our story begins in the cold and rain by a kindled fire on the island of Melita midst the people who received the shipwrecked Paul and his companions with no little kindness. Paul himself had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire; and there, out of the heat, came a viper and fastened on his hand.

The barbarians, when they saw the venomous beast hanging on the hand of Paul, being superstitious, said among themselves, “No doubt this man is a murderer whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.”  But Paul, the beloved, empowered of the Holy Ghost, shook off the beast into the fire and felt no harm. And the barbarians, seeing no harm come to him, changed their minds and said that he was a god.

And Paul, lodging with Publius, laid his hands on his father who lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux, and he healed him by the Holy Ghost. And others in the island which had diseases came to the beloved apostle and were healed by the laying on of hands–because the Lord Jesus Christ and the angel of God stood by him.

Therefore, let it be known and let it be published among you that the signs which follow the people of God who preach the Everlasting Gospel everywhere are confirmed by the Word incarnate in the ascended Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit sealed in and through your members by the angels of God and the emissaries of the Most High. This work is the work of the communion of the saints robed in white moving in and through and among you. It is the cooperative venture of the members of the body of God who are the Great White Brotherhood above and below.

This work is the great adventure of the initiates of the Son of Man, the Lion of God, the sacrificial Calf of the Holy Spirit, and the mighty Eagle of the Mother lode of Sirius. This work is the work of seen and unseen hands–millions of hands reaching up to God and out to those in need, hands clasped in prayer, hands toiling tirelessly in the sacred labor of the Lord’s vineyard.

When the hand of the Lord is upon you, my beloved, it is the grace of his Self worth and his blessedness unto the worthy. The hand of the Lord now manifests in and through the many hands of the heavenly hosts extending to earth as helping hands to the end that our chosen servants might finish the mystery of God and establish the Holy Grail as the archetype of true selfhood in the earth.

Now be of good cheer and be encouraged by the great courage of those who have gone before you. Claim the mantle of the apostle Paul who awaits your coming on the east gate of the City Foursquare where he is the Lamb who is worthy to open the book that is reserved for the initiates of the fifth ray. Serving with the two witnesses, these witness unto the Truth in order that the original lie of Serpent and all liars which have proceeded after him might be swallowed up by the rod of Moses, by the judgment of the Son of God, by the sacred fire of the Holy Ghost, and by the Light of the Woman clothed with the Sun.

When the seventy whom the Lord had sent two by two before his face returned with joy saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name,” he said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Therefore, because you have stood and still stand in the joy of the will of God before the Enemy of his hosts, behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the Enemy:  and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

This initiation of the fifth ray, the taking up of serpents, is the opening of the eye of God within the soul, that in seeing the true image and likeness of God the soul might bind the anti-image pervaded by Serpent. In the hour of his disciples’ God-victorious passage through the scenes of Serpent unto the God-vision of my name, my throne, and my authority, Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood and in the lineage of the Ruby Ray, praying unto the Almighty One, “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent and hast revealed them unto babes:  even so, Father; for it seemed good in thy sight.”

By this sight conveyed to the other seventy through Elohim, the all-seeing eye of God was in their midst as the pulsating orb of light whose brilliant beams crystallized the sword of Truth gainst which Serpent and his seed could not stand. Thus by that sword of their sacred Word whereby they witnessed unto the Lord Jesus Christ, Satan fell from his stronghold where he had positioned himself in the third-eye chakras of God’s children.

My beloved, understand that the fall of Satan and of Serpent “as lightning from heaven” occurs each time you witness to the Word, you preach the Word, you teach the Word, and you become the Word. This exposure of the Truth through the hearts of the flaming ones embodied on earth is the instantaneous exposure of the Liar and his lie. We deal here with living Truth whose proof is always abundant in the life of the saints of the Church Universal and Triumphant.

It is Error and the erroneous doctrines of Serpent and his seed in Church and State that you must take up and expose for all to see the powerlessness of the venomous beasts and their bestiality before casting them into the sacred fire of God’s all-consuming love. Herein lies your initiation under the World Saviour and his anointed apostle. And here, by God’s all-seeing eye, is the crystallization of the City Foursquare whereby you build the true foundation of the Great Matter Pyramid.

This is the third of the five signs confirmed by the Word in all who obey the two commands to preach the Everlasting Gospel and to believe and be baptized. Through the third sign, the fallen ones who have encamped in the Matter sphere are pushed back that the sons and daughters of God might occupy the office of true Christ and true prophet. Serving on the fifth ray at the east gate, they are commissioned by God to go before the saints (who occupy the north gate of the Matter sphere) and the great multitude (who occupy the west gate of the Matter sphere), leading them unto the Ascension Temple (the initiation of the eighth ray on the south gate of the Matter sphere). [See chart page 275.]

Now the hour is come for the taking up of these serpents who are the fallen servants of God. For they have bound themselves together by a blood oath before Satan (It is the blood of the holy innocents.), nevermore to repent of their deeds, evermore to relentlessly pursue and pretend to undo the Word and the Work of the Woman and her seed.

Taking up serpents is the game of the chelas of the Guru Ma.

The name “Guru Ma” is the title of an office and of the mantle worn by the person or persons who hold the Mother flame in the earth. It is a garment that has been worn before and one that will be worn again by the ever-present lineage of the Ruby Ray whose Mother flame I ensoul in the messenger and in the continuity of the messengership which ever has been and ever shall be the contact of hierarchy with the Lord’s embodied hosts.

Understand, then, the vision held in the heart of the Goddess of Liberty and of every soul holding the eye of the Motherhood of God fixed immaculately upon the offspring of the Most High. Understand the initiate of the Mother flame holding the sacred fire within the third eye of the children of God even as he beholds the perfected son in the Christ Self of each one.

In the hour when Jesus Christ delivered to the other seventy this power of the Mother flame to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the Enemy, he revealed the mystery of the science of the fifth ray of the all-seeing eye of God.


            All things are delivered to me of my Father:  and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

          And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

          For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

   With this teaching Jesus, whose power derived from the Self-realized Father and Son within him, explained that all things–all substance, energy, and manifestation of both Good and Evil–are delivered to him and subject unto him by the Presence of the Father individualized within him as the I AM THAT I AM.

He explained that no man can know who is the incarnation of the Son–the manifest light of the Christ–whether in earth or in heaven, but through the beloved I AM Presence of the Father. Then and now it is this I AM Presence (the I AM THAT I AM symbolically noted as YHVH and called by many Yahweh, Jehovah, or Lord) who reveals the Son of God (the Light of God) to the disciple–to the one self-disciplined of the Son.

He further explained that no one could know who the Father is, in heaven or in earth, but the one who is his Son. Only the one self-disciplined of his own beloved Christ Self can know his Almighty Lord–the Mighty I AM Presence. Only the living chela can identify the living Guru Maitreya. And only the true one who embodies the light of the Son can reveal to his disciples the Shekinah glory of the I AM THAT I AM, the I AM Presence who is the true Father of every child of his light. Those who are the disciples of the Son therefore have access unto the Father.

Knowing this, Jesus turned to the disciples of his light and said, “Blessed are your eyes which see the things that ye see. Because ye are anointed by the all-seeing eye of God, ye have the inner sight to know who is Christ and therefore who is Antichrist, who is the true Father Guru and therefore who is the false.”

It is clear that although many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which the disciples were able to see, they could not see them because they had not the power of the Son of God which is conveyed only by the true path of discipleship. And what is it which the prophets and the kings have desired to see, my beloved?  Why, of course it is Good and Evil in the ultimate sense rather than that relative good and evil of the gods of Hades delivered to Eve by Serpent.

This is that power of vision conveyed by the Son of man to the initiates who tarry at the east gate. These are bound by the mission of the two witnesses to bear Truth to the tribes of Israel and to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people–to all who can receive the arc of God’s all-seeing eye and still stand to retain that crystal clear identity of the beloved of Christ, sealed by the sword of Truth.

The chakras must be cleared to receive the rod of Moses. This clearing is accomplished by the violet transmuting flame invoked by you in your daily dynamic decrees. This is the work of the Holy Spirit in you, clearing the riverbed for the flow of the crystal clear waters of the river of life rising from the base of the spine unto the crown chakra and then held and sustained in the invincible matrix of Truth–your very own chalice of the eye of God, the center of cosmic concentration at the brow.

In this hour of the coming of the Elohim of the Fifth Ray, Cyclopea, to represent the Karmic Board at Summit University, we call for the acceleration of violet-flame invocations and the intensified use of the decree to Cyclopea. By the sword of truth and the flame of freedom you will go forth to tread on serpents and scorpions. By the flaming blue swords of the angels of Faith and their perfect presence among you and by the power of my very flame present with Archangel Michael, the angel of the Lord–the spirits of Serpent, both embodied and disembodied, will be subject unto the Law and the Light (the Father and the Son) of my rod of the Ruby Ray. This will I implant within you who are faithful to the Faithful and True.

“And the God of Peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.” <1>This God of Peace who was with Paul is the sixth of the seven holy Kumaras who sponsors the initiates of the sixth ray under the Lord Jesus Christ to give dominion unto his disciples over the desire body and the personal and the planetary emotions of the solar plexus. Thus the key to the masterful light of the third eye is the God-control of the anxiety, the agitation, the arrogance, and the anger of the fallen ones who are the followers of Serpent.

Their ever-present fear of self-annihilation, which they have sealed by their own envy and enmity with the Light, you must place under your feet in submission to the Word even as the Woman has placed the moon under her feet. For the doubts of these doubters of the Truth and of the Word, and of the joy of the little child are the ever-present disease that would infest the mind and heart, if it were possible, of the true body of believers. But it cannot. This doubt in the immediacy and the availability of the Presence of God to meet every need and resolve every equation, human and divine, has been spun into the manifold philosophies of the shrewd Serpent and his seed.

One and all, let the philosophies of doubt and the doubters be consumed by the Piscean mastery of the God of Peace and his Son Jesus Christ transferred to the many sons which he has brought unto the captivity of the ascension flame!

Now let the rolling momentum of the violet flame roll back and consume! roll back and consume! roll back and consume! the rising tide of the Dark Cycle in Scorpio and the flood of misqualified water (emotional energy) which Serpent cast out of his mouth after the Woman that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Let the violet flame be invoked by the two candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth and all who stand before him of the children of God and of elemental life. Let them receive the initiations of the hierarch of Taurus–the Calf who is Buddha–that they might help the Woman and her seed. For it is Lord Gautama, the Lord of the World, who is the Buddha of the Earth.

Now while the earth trembles, let all who have eyes to see behold the Buddha and the devotees of the great trine of Mother Earth. And let those who see, likewise open their mouths; and by the terrible crystal, the torrent of sacred fire released in the science of the spoken Word, let them swallow up the flood of misqualified Mother light which the dragon (the false hierarchy and their false decreers) casts out of his mouth.

Beloved, I AM come to you in the full glory of the violet flame of cosmic freedom, of the Ruby Ray penetrating the lie of Serpent unto the night and unto the day. And by the all-seeing eye of God and the initiations of the fifth ray, I come to you who are the seed of the Woman to give to you the armour of God’s light. It is his Word manifest in you as the Son of God.

Girded with the flame of Truth, invoke the breastplate of righteousness and let your winged sandals be the preparation of the gospel of peace sealed in your chakras with seven seals. By the shield of faith, the sword of the Holy Spirit, and the helmet of salvation (Self-elevation unto the sanctity of the Mind of God) I say, in God’s name, you shall stand, face, and conquer that dragon who is yet wroth with the Woman, who yet persecutes the Woman who is able to bring forth the Manchild within you, and who would yet make war with the remnant of her seed.

You shall overcome him by the sacred fire of the Lamb if you open up your mouth and let the light of the Ruby Ray flow through the matrix of the divine decree of my Word. You shall overcome him if you keep the commandments of God and witness to the testimony of Jesus Christ sealed in the heart of the two olive trees.

I AM Sanat Kumara. I bid you prepare the earth for the coming of the Son of God. Through your call to my sacred name and to the Lamb, let elemental life of the water, the earth, the air, and the fire be infilled with the violet flame. And let the inhabiters of the earth and the sea (those whose consciousness is polarized to the physical and astral planes) be sealed by the circle and sword of Astrea and her legions of blue-lightning angels.

The four cosmic forces who hold the office of the Man, the Lion, the Calf, and the flying Eagle are the guardians in the heavens and in the earth of the Lamb and the Lamb’s wife and of his hundred and forty and four thousand in whose third-eye chakras I have sealed my name.

By my name and by my eye, I manifest myself within you by the mantle of my apostle at Melita where our story begins but does not end. And by my name and by my eye you shall take up serpents and cast them into the sacred fire.

Be thou made whole!  For by thy wholeness shall the whole earth be made whole.

I AM Sanat Kumara
