on the High Altar at the Royal Teton Ranch
Thanks to the generous love offerings of Keepers of the Flame,
this Nativity was secured in response to the dispensation
of Saint Germain in his dictation on November 22, 1980

"And his name shall be called Emmanuel—God with us."—Matthew 1:2-3
"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David.
The virgin's name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her,
'Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!'
. . . Then the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.
He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him
the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever,
and of His kingdom there will be no end."—Luke 1:26-33

"In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world
should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria.
And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee,
from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem,
because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary,
his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her
to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths
and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn."—Luke 2:1-7

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."—John 1:14

"Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch
over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day
in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.'
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"'—Luke 2:8-14

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory
as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth . . . And of His fullness
we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace
and truth came through Jesus Christ."—John 1:14, 16-17

" . . . this richest babe comes poor in being, more pearled within
than to the seeing."—An early American hymn

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government
will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful,
Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end,
upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it
with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."—Isaiah 9:6, 7

"How many observe Christ's birth-day! How few, his precepts!
O! 'tis easier to keep Holidays than Commandments."—Benjamin Franklin

Enough happiness to keep you happy

During the year may you have
Enough happiness to keep you sweet.
Enough trials to keep you strong.
Enough sorrow to keep you human.
Enough hope to keep you happy.
Enough failure to keep you humble.
Enough success to keep you eager.
Enough friends to give you comfort.
Enough wealth to meet your needs.
Enough enthusiasm to make you look forward to tomorrow.
Enough determination to make each day better than the day before.

“In searching for that manger, even the ark of safety where the Nativity should be immaculately guarded, we have selected this very altar of the Holy Grail for the display of the Nativity that shall become a cosmic focus of the birth of Christ to this planetary body.

" . . . We are therefore beholding now the etheric lowering into manifestation of this Nativity, and the etheric blueprint is set, and now you can feel the light emanations of the hearts of the participants beginning to radiate from this very forcefield.

" . . . Through this focus, beloved hearts, we will establish anew a momentum of the Holy Family, the opportunity of sons and daughters to bring forth the Christed ones—opportunity for that magnificent cooperation of angels, ascended masters and men, elemental life, without which there could not have been the Piscean dispensation. I encourage you to fast and pray that you might also have the vision of the Virgin and the Manchild, the very one whom I held in my arms and adored as the Saviour of the World. Thus by the duplication of the image and the replica of our life, worlds upon worlds can once again be established in this octave."

This Nativity scene was placed on the altar precisely where Saint Germain stood when delivering the dictation. The hardwood figures are approximately 25” in height, hand-carved and hand-painted in Italy.

This focus of the Nativity will remain on the altar until the right to life of every child of God is guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States of America—the right to live to realize the personal Christ potential.

We encourage you to keep your own Nativity scene in a special place in your home or on your altar until this victory for the Lord is accomplished.


Traditional Polish Nativity (szopka)

"We would like to expand today in the consciousness not only of those assembled here but also in those assembled in the entire community of the United States and the world an awareness of the oneness of life upon the planet that we may be able to create in America in the future that holy family concept that will draw mankind together and set before the people of this planet a cup of light in the heart of America."
Saint Germain
April 13, 1968

Now Is the Hour
for a Great Leap in Consciousness

The Three Kings

Now we send throughout the planetary body and to its core the invincible manifestation of the ruby ray.

Therefore, O Buddha of the Ruby Ray and many ruby-ray Buddhas, come forth now. Come forth and manifest yourselves that the people of earth may understand that there is a law of the Logos whereby the Three Wise Men, who we are, <1> may bring forth tremendous alchemy in this hour.

As you look at the advances in technology, as you look at the pace of science know, then, beloved, that we, the Three Kings, hold the balance for this. Come, then, and understand how much we can do for the children, the adults, the avatars and the simple folk throughout the land.

This is a land teeming with great life, with great intelligence, with great ability to sponsor life. But we need your help, beloved. We do not hear you. You do not hear us. We must be heard.

Hear us, then. Hear us again and again. Let us reach out to you and tell you that some things that move swiftly in technology work for the good; other things do not necessarily work for the good.

Therefore draw the line between the Real and the Unreal. Come to the understanding, beloved, that each and every one of you in this room and on the telephone patch must realize that a vital victory must come to pass.

We have come to the day and the hour of the Buddha of the Ruby Ray. Now is the time to bring back those decree sheets so that you may give the ruby-ray calls, <2> even if for but five minutes, ten minutes, beloved, or for two hours a day. Trust us. And understand that it is the action of the ruby ray that will take you to great heights of consciousness and will bring you, beloved, beyond the 51 percent of karma balanced that you must have, and beyond that and beyond and beyond. For we would have you graduate from this planet 100 percent karma free.

[30-second standing ovation]

So you can give the calls in the green section, the pink section and the blue section of the "Invocations to the Hierarchy of the Ruby Ray." And then the world belongs to you, beloved, because the living Saviour dwells in your heart, the Holy Christ Self dwells in your heart, and that victory is yours to claim over and over and over again. And, beloved, when you see it happening, and when you see your children being elevated by Mighty Cosmos' Secret Rays, you will understand just what I am talking about.

Atlantis Rising

I am talking about the fact that throughout the world many of you and your children have the capacity for far greater achievements in the fields of science, engineering, art, design, architecture and in the understanding of all that must go forward in a new civilization. That new civilization is being created again, as it were, in the sense that Atlantis is rising.

Do you see, beloved? The old forms, the old monuments that are beneath the waves—so they come back full circle. And you understand that again and again through karma, through your nonresolution of karma, you have allowed yourselves to remain on the planetary body. And in so doing, you have kept your children with you.

Now is the hour for the great leap—the great leap in consciousness. For you need to move beyond the minutiae of this octave and go on and on and farther on. Look back, beloved, and see what were the things that never should have been but were a part of your lifestream. Do not lament them. Go to work with the violet flame. Bring forth the transmutation of these actions and transfer it here, there and everywhere on the planetary body.

Yes, bring forth the violet flame, for we are determined that this entire planetary body will change. And it will change because you live on earth, beloved. What will take place is this: a change for the good—the highest good.

We are the Three Kings and we make up the threefold flame for this planetary body!

[28-second standing ovation]

See What You Have Done for the Lord
and See What the Lord Will Do for You

Now we speak to our beloved Russian students. We speak to our beloved students in the United States and in every continent, and we say to you: Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! See what you have done for the Lord. See what the Lord will do for you.

For the day is coming, and the time is coming upon the earth when, as it were, Noah himself shall return . . . the great lights of the centuries are returning, for these great ones would come forth. And even though they manifest as Ascended Masters, they would move with you in the streets of the great cities of the world. And they will see the pain of the children and the pain of the sick, and they will also see the abuses in the medical profession.

Beloved hearts, those who are wounded, let them be made whole. Let those hearts reach now for the Godhead to attain their ascension in the Light whereby they might bring themselves out of the levels of the earth and rise unto the vast consciousness of Mighty Cosmos.

See, beloved, the worlds are turning. Discern what you can and move on. Accelerate now. For truly, now is the hour of Victory.

And Mighty Victory places his canopy over you today. Today he is here. Today he says: "I AM come. I AM Mighty Victory. And I will not allow this earth or any part of it to be undone. For my legions are here until the finish!"

[46-second standing ovation]

Two Full Hours of Violet Flame Each Day

Beloved ones, it behooves us all to dedicate two full hours each day to violet-flame dynamic decrees. This we call for. And all the hosts of the Lord who have graduated from earth's schoolroom have always hoped for this. Understand that when you do it, when all of us do it, those two hours of violet flame daily become such a momentum that that very momentum itself will carry you unto the exaltation of your soul, unto the manifestation of a higher way of life, even unto the alchemical marriage of the soul with God.

O beloved, there is so much more that you can do to bring about intense compassion, caring, understanding among men. There is so much that you can contribute through technology—so much that you can do each and every step of the way. Know that this earth must be turned around.

As you have seen the upheavals in the weather, realize that these upheavals have come from the personal upheavals of each and every individual on this earth who has made karma. Listen as I say this: Every individual on earth who has made karma will pay that price, is now paying that price and has been paying that price for karma that goes back as far as 25,800 years.

Today is a new day. If you will take seriously the giving of two full hours of violet flame per day, you will come to such a liberation that you will wonder why you ever had any burdens, any distractions—anything that took you away from your absolute God-Victory.

Therefore, beloved, see what we must do globally for Church Universal and Triumphant. Let us understand that everywhere in the world people must have the taste of the violet flame. For they are parched. They know not where to go to receive that elixir of everlasting life. And you have it, beloved.

You have this essence. You have us, the Three Wise Men. And we carry wisdom's flame. We carry the ruby ray. We carry levels of being you know not of. And we say to you, with all the hosts of the Lord, with Enoch, with each and every one ascended: Know that by your absolute determination you can, you shall, you will have your victory.

And you will have it because you will put all your heart and soul and mind into it. Therefore it shall come to pass. It shall be.

[35-second standing ovation]

Now we give to you Helios and Vesta. Beloved hearts, extend tremendous love in this moment to Helios and Vesta, your Father-Mother God.

[23-second standing ovation]

The six-day conference Family—The Heart of Community was held July 4 through July 9, 1998, at San Diego, California. This dictation by the Three Wise Men was delivered by the Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, on Thursday, July 9, 1998.

1. Three Wise Men. The Messenger has told us that beginning January 6, 1998, the Three Kings, or Three Wise Men (El Morya, Kuthumi and Djwal Kul) would sponsor all who desire to make their ascension in this life. She announced before the dictation that for the first time they would speak together.

2. The ruby-ray calls. These can include decree 33.00, "The Lord's Judgment by the Ruby Ray through Archangel Chamuel and Charity," and "The Lord's Ritual of Exorcism." Also the "Invocations to the Hierarchy of the Ruby Ray through the Messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet" are printed in the 80.00 through 110.00 sections of the decree book, Prayers, Meditations and Dynamic Decrees for the Coming Revolution in Higher Consciousness.

Infant of Prague
Infant Jesus of Prague
in Alabaster

"Let the Infant of Prague be recognized as the focus of the Manchild. Let the infant Christ Child restore in you, my beloved, your innocence. For truly all is not lost but you can regain that holiness of the little child. Truly to have innocence is to have the inner sense complete of the inner God.

"How beautiful! Could anyone ask for any other gift at Christmas than the gift of holy innocence? May you pray for the gift, search for it. May you ask for it. And may you receive it according to your fervor.

"I AM Joseph, shepherd in the Church, Father flame—if you will have me. I pray that you will come to appreciate the embodiment of my flame as Father, for I have many vessels and many sons to raise up. I smile upon the one and the many.

"Yes, there is hope in the courts of heaven. Yes, there is hope. Because you live, saints of America, because you live and love and strive for liberty, hope is fired in elemental life and the planet receives an extra spin from the hand of God."

Saint Germain

"Blessed hearts, take this mantle, for it is already appearing in the sky. Take this mantle of Elijah descending! Take then the opportunity to defend those who are without defense, to defend the poor and those who are the widowed. Let the light of God that never fails be upon you. For millions shall cry out to thee—to thy star, to thy light—in desperation, ere the year turns.

"Therefore let us watch and pray. Let us keep the vigil of the continents. Let us keep the vigil of the Manchild. Let us remain close to the holy stable. Let us remain close to the crèche. Let us realize that this oneness and this gathering of initiates of the Brotherhood—out of the East, out of the West, from above and below, angels and elementals—is for the reinforcement of the Christos, for the birth of that Christos.

"My beloved, let Bethlehem and the Nativity now be enshrined in your heart. If you desire a replica of this Nativity—brought forth upon this altar by your own gracious love offerings at the request of Saint Germain—should also now be erected within your own heart at your own altar, you need only give the sign of assent to my angels who come to establish a sacred miniature light, a focus and forcefield of these personages of the Godhead—seven in attendance at the birth of the Saviour, representatives of three worlds and of the fourth.

"Thus the Saviour comes for the integration of the worlds above and below. And those who attend his blessing are those who will follow the path of the seven rays to their own Christhood.

"How sacred, most sacred is the coming now of the holy angels, who in their ministration so hallow thy heart and thy heart’s chalice. The salutation of these angels from your own heart to their own is also most necessary. Therefore let us say:

"Hail, angels of the Christ Mass!

"Hail, angels of the Christ Mass!

"Thus they come. Thus they salute the Word. Thus they adore the Christ within you.

"Beloved hearts, it is relevance as well as reverence that we must dwell upon: the relevancy of your own Christhood in this age, your Self-esteem, esteeming the Light of God within your own temple. This is the great gift that you bring to friends and family wherever you go in this hour—the Self-esteem.

"Lo, the Word cometh!
Lo, the Word is where I AM!
O God, make me worthy.
I AM worthy.
Make me worthy.
I AM worthy.

"Thus the Omega light enfolds a planet. And Omega’s angels attend this rebirth of Christ the King.

"Let the shining of your star, beloved hearts, produce an equivalency of relevancy in the hearts of those who are near you who feel the auric emanation of the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood and of the holy angels and the saints robed in white who also gathered at the birth of Lord Jesus—who gather at thine own birth.

"Let there be a transmittal of holy freedom! Let the proclamation of your own lips be heard throughout the land:

"This is the day for the appearing of the Lord where I AM!

"I will shine forth as the sun.

"For my own mighty I AM Presence is come down unto me

"To keep the vigil of the Christ Mass.

"Not your errors, beloved ones, but your victories, not your diseases but your healings, not the records of death but Life raised up will renew in you the course of your own native path of holy innocence."

Mother Mary
December 14, 1980

"Listen to the angels who herald the dawn of the Christ consciousness in all mankind! Whosoever shall choose this day to serve the light shall receive the impetus of the Christ flame —even the matrix of the Bethlehem babe.

"As Saint Francis adored the holy child lying in the crèche fashioned out of his own love of the Savior, so know that the Lord God and the Cosmic Virgin have fashioned the image of the Christ Child aborning in the hearts of humanity. And in the retreats of the Great White Brotherhoodin each onethere is a permanent focus of the scene of the Mother with Childholy, meek, and mildwith the guardian flame of the patron Saint Germain, whose freedom flame guards the increase of the soul here in the folds of the garment of the Mother.

"Angels of Christmas, come forth! Sing your songs of praise! Make your way with angels of Uriel’s band! Angels of the Prince of Peace, twelve legions outpicturing the Christ consciousness of the twelve hierarchies of the sun, come forth! And blend your energies with choirs of angels, men, and elementals, singing, 'Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!'
He is the promised one, the Savior of the world. The Christ comes to every heart to champion the fires of immortality and to release the frankincense that will purify the atmosphere of the soul.

" . . . Christmas is a time for ritual, for the ritual of the angels of ministration and peace, service and love’s sweet release. As you decorate your home in anticipation of the honored guest, the Christed One, will you not include with the manger scene that you erect a focus of the gold, the frankincense, the myrrhsymbols of the balance of the threefold flamecarried by the wise men who came from the East. And will you also make a daily round through the home, carrying the urn of sacred incense. Oh, let it burn away the dross, the drudgery, the darkness of a year to make way for the birth of the little one and of the Son of the Sun!"

Note: On Christmas Eve children may wish to place bread and grape juice near the manger scene, and after the singing of Christmas carols and the offering of holy prayer, ask Jesus to consecrate the portion. The children may then partake of the bread and the juice in his honor.

Archangel Uriel

"My beloved, in this hour of your contemplation of the Word, the very Word that I AM and that you shall become, I, too, hold the meditation of my Immaculate Heart for the birth of the Cosmic Christ within God’s children whose time has come.

" . . . Understand, blessed hearts, that this then is your hour and opportunity to invoke the celebration and the reenactment of your original birth in the original purity of God. And this matrix of the Nativity which the holy angels have built within the secret chamber of your own heart is now yours for that blessed experiencing of the fullness of the joy to the world. Take then your life and let each year be a consecration and a walk with the holy days in the life of Jesus Christ, for the contemplation of the continuity of the Word and his activities will surely bring to you that spiral that begins with the holy night of the birth of the Saviour."
Mother Mary
December 24, 1980

Nativity accounts treat giving as an important part of the Holy Birth. Historically, the actual year
of Christ's birth is thought to be between 6 B.C. and 4 B.C., at the end of Herod's reign in Judea. The first mention of Christmas as a formal Nativity feast occurred in a Roman almanac dated A.D. 336.

The Christmas star that guided the Wise Men to Bethlehem may have been any of a number of recorded astronomical events coinciding with the likeliest dates of that first Christmas. Halley's Comet appeared in 12 B.C., and ancient Chinese texts note "exploding" stars, or novas, observed in both 4 and 5 B.C. Exceptionally bright planetary conjunctions occurred in 2, 6, and
7 B.C.; among these, the most promising candidate for the Holy Star was the triple conjunction of Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn in 6 B.C.

The Wise Men followed the Holy Star to lay gifts, symbolic of His life, before the Baby Jesus: gold, because He was a king; frankincense, as he was a divine king; myrrh, to foreshadow that His suffering and death would be our preservation.

The prophet Isaiah wrote of the coming Messiah, "The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light . . . " Well before the birth of Jesus, man longed for light in the days of greatest darkness. Early Christians selected December 25th for the Nativity feast to proclaim that Jesus Christ was the real Light of the World, the true "Son of Righteousness," the foretold Messiah. As Jesus later said, he had not come to destroy the law and the prophets, but to fulfill them, just as He fulfilled the deepest longings of human minds and hearts.

Our name for this Holy Day arises from the old English Cristes Maesse, or Christ's Mass.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."—James 1:17

"It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its Mighty Founder was a child Himself."—Charles Dickens

"The Incarnation . . . illuminates and orders all other phenomena, explains both our laughter and our logic, our fear of the dead and our knowledge that it is somehow good to die, and which at one stroke covers what multitudes of separate theories will hardly cover for us if this is rejected." C.S. Lewis

"The place that the shepherds found was not an academy or an abstract republic; it was not a place of myths allegorized or dissected or explained away. It was a place of dreams come true." G.K. Chesterton

"Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity . . . ?"—John Quincy Adams , July 4, 1837
