Scriptural Reading:
The Conspiracy to Kill Paul

And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.

And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.

Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.

And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done....

And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,

Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.

(For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)

And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut.

And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar: who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul.

Then the chief captain came near, and took him, and commanded him to be bound with two chains; and demanded who he was, and what he had done.

And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle.

And when he came upon the stairs, so it was, that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people. For the multitude of the people followed after, crying, Away with him.

And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?

Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.

And when he had given him licence, Paul stood on the stairs, and beckoned with the hand unto the people. And when there was made a great silence, he spake unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying,

Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence which I make now unto you. (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence, and he saith:)

I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.

And I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.

As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to be punished.

And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me.

And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.

And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.

And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.

And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.

And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.

And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; and saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.

And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee: and when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.

And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.

And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.

And as they cried out, and cast off their clothes, and threw dust into the air, the chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.

And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?

When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.

Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, Tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, Yea. And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born.

Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.

On the morrow, because he would have known the certainty wherefore he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from his bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down, and set him before them.

And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.

And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.

Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?

And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God’s high priest?

Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.

But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided. For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees’ part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

And when there arose a great dissension, the chief captain, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled in pieces of them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring him into the castle.

And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.

And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy. And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.

Now therefore ye with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though ye would inquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.

And when Paul’s sister’s son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.

Then Paul called one of the centurions unto him, and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.

So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, who hath something to say unto thee.

Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that thou hast to tell me?

And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would inquire somewhat of him more perfectly.

But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.

So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged him, See thou tell no man that thou hast shewed these things to me.

And he called unto him two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night; and provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.

And he wrote a letter after this manner:

Claudius Lysias unto the most excellent governor Felix sendeth greeting.

This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.

And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council: whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death or of bonds.

And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before thee what they had against him. Farewell.

Then the soldiers, as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatris.

On the morrow they left the horsemen to go with him, and returned to the castle: who, when they came to Caesarea, and delivered the epistle to the governor, presented Paul also before him.

And when the governor had read the letter, he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that he was of Cilicia; I will hear thee, said he, when thine accusers are also come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod’s judgment hall.

The Glorification of the Son of God
Dictation by Jesus Christ

Hail, O infinite Light!

Hail to the sons of God!

Hail to the Keeper of the Flame!

I AM Christus. I AM your brother Jesus ascended, and I AM come in this hour of the glorification of the Son of God that you might learn of me the initiation of the Lamb in the cycle of Aries, in the cycle of the spring and the spring equinox.

Truly, the Lamb who is slain from the foundation of the world does stand in the margent of the earth at the point of the rising of the sun, there to send forth the mighty light rays from out the Great Central Sun, from the heart of Alpha and Omega, anchored then in the hearts of those who receive him now.

I come in the fullness of my ascended-master consciousness two thousand years hence and almost two thousand years since the initiation of Saul of Tarsus in the way of the Lamb in this cycle. I desire that you should understand that the blessings given before my ascension to the apostles were therefore by the nexus of the then attainment of my lifestream, and the initiation given unto Saul was by the full power of the ascended Presence.

In this hour I come, having multiplied that Christhood, lo, throughout the Piscean dispensation. Therefore, in the hour that the Father has sent me to return in a mighty and glorious Second Coming, I AM this day, as announced to you last evening, now one with every light-bearer on earth, everyone in whom there burns a threefold flame. I AM there in the fullness of my Electronic Presence, multiplied by the light of the bearer as I multiply that light and soul freedom.

This, then, is the glory of this Eastertide: that I AM come in the fullness of a working relationship with certain souls who have been quickened to the Path and others who have not, yet in whom there burns no guile but purity and love—no leaning or penchant toward error or calumny but only the path of Truth.

Wherever the walk is, there I AM with those hearts whose fire burns with a love for the ruby ray and will accept the consequences of wearing, even with an archangel, that mantle of the ruby ray. Here I AM, therefore, O people of God! And I have had set before you this afternoon the mighty light of record—a portion, therefore, of the experiences of Paul, whom I named following his conversion.

Understand that this divine encounter with my ascended-master Presence is what is in store for those who now receive me by this dispensation of my Second Coming in the Electronic Presence, which means in the full magnitude of my auric emanation as the individual is able to bear it and therefore somewhat stepped-down until they themselves can mount to the point of their personal Christ Self and also receive the fullness of my attainment.

Understand the greatness of the Father, who gives to the Son the magnificent opportunity of bearing the burdens of his own and the multiplication of the whole loaf of my consciousness to every living soul on earth in whom there burns the threefold flame, that threefold flame held and intensified as a devotion to Truth—thus, not merely threefold flames in embryo or embryonic consciousness, but a threefold flame that has been tried on and worked, identified with, and that has become the guiding light and the lamp unto the soul. Day by day, therefore, I trust that as those who are yet infants, who develop that flame, may also receive my Presence when a certain quickening does take place.

Let me make clear then, beloved hearts, that this opportunity is one that I have come surely to fulfill and surely to enhance and with that Holy Spirit to make known to you, by the very example of Paul himself, what is the experience that can be anticipated by those who truly have received the engrafted Word, <1> who have received my personal Presence unto themselves as Paul did, who, despite the warning of the Holy Spirit and my own, determined to go and preach to the Jews in Jerusalem, contrary to the counsel even of my flame and my Presence.

Thus, beloved, you understand a free will that was exercised by Paul, who insisted in taking my name before those, the very ones and seed who had already moved against me and been instrumental in the acceleration of my own initiation of the crucifixion. These, howbeit, were Asian Jews and they came against Paul with a mighty vehemence and, as you have heard the record, determined by a vow and a pact that they ought to murder him.

Beloved ones, I tell you this day that the murderous intent is also abroad regarding your own Messenger. And yet this murderous intent takes the form of the determination to destroy this Church, this organization, and to destroy the reputation, the character, and the image. But if it were possible, they would push their anger all the way and also complete their vow of the death pact against the Light incarnate.

Therefore does the heart of the Messenger leap to rejoice—as did the heart of Paul—to bear my name, to witness of me, to carry a light so bright that it is an offense unto those who pursue the way of the Satans <2> and the desecration of the Mother chakra and of all of the chakras by their incessant carnal hatred and their incessant chatter, heaping gossip upon gossip that has no origin in fact but only the fancy of their minds and the fantasy that they desire to place upon the image of the one I have sent to you—not only to preach to you but to ordain you and to raise you up that you might know the meaning of the Lamb and the coming of that Lamb and that you might partake of that Lamb of Aries and realize that Sanat Kumara is in our midst, and the dividing of the way is so that the light-bearers may be exalted. For we cannot lift up the ones who are not of the Light.

Therefore, by one means or another, they must effect their own exit. For they are no part of the Light or of the dispensation, nor can they receive what beloved Saul received from my heart.

Learn well of me, therefore. For I, the ascended master Jesus Christ, did exercise my authority and my right to contact the unascended Saul—true, a Pharisee and a Roman and a Jew, a persecutor of me and of Christians, who stood by even at the death of Stephen by stoning. <3>

Therefore, realize that the acts of the individual are not the final conclusion as to the quality of the soul. For there were other Pharisees and Sadducees in those days who outwardly kept perfectly the Law but inwardly were ravening wolves <4> and had not the quality of heart to be initiated.

Understand, therefore, that no matter what the accusation of physical acts that are charged against the Messengers, we have chosen because we have chosen, and the quality of heart is the foundation of the instrument.

Therefore, see to it also, in thy preparation for our calling, that you bring therefore a live coal, a lively coal of fire and fervor for the Truth as you understand it. For this was the quality of heart of Saul of Tarsus—believing what he had been taught, even a false teaching regarding Jesus Christ, my own name and my life and mission.

Therefore, he persecuted my followers and, in them, persecuted my Presence. For I was in them, and my light was an offense to those who therefore enlisted Saul in their ways of exterminating, imprisoning, persecuting, and torturing Christians.

Blessed hearts, realize, then, that the fervent heart when hitched to the wrong star may be unhitched and redirected and therefore scale the heights of mastery, leaving behind those who seek to perfect themselves by the Law without the Spirit, who engage in rituals without love, and who are mechanistic in their judgments, very eager to point the gnarled and bony finger against any light-bearer for a single sin which they do think does soil the garment.

Well, sin may or may not soil the garment. But the Holy Spirit is able. And that Holy Spirit in me did raise up Saul, and therefore he received upon himself that substance of his karma which created the state of blindness. And my instrument again, Ananias, therefore did pronounce that he should see by that Holy Spirit—and he did see.

And Saul therefore became Paul and went forth as a chief apostle, one that I would send to the Gentiles. And yet he, being a Jew, determined to preach to the Jews, not realizing how infamous and how wicked was the core of their hatred and their rage against the living Christ. Thus, I came. Though he did not take my advice, so he loved me and I comforted him and gave to him protection, even through the Romans.

And you see, therefore, that God is no respecter of persons, and we of the ascended hosts may raise up friends of light where you know not. And I tell you, in these very months, total strangers of this Church and of this organization and of these Messengers have come forward to stand for them in such nobility and honor and truth and defense as to make almost the angels weep; whereby contrast those who, having been with them so long time, should pick apart the hairs and determine that they are not worthy any longer to bear the flame of the World Teachers.

Thus, one is taken and another is left. And the great sword of living Truth will cleave asunder the Real from the unreal even within your own members, within your heart and soul and consciousness, dividing the way between Truth and error and showing you, if you will be God-taught, what is truly the way to become my apostle in deed.

Thus, Paul spake to them, believing surely that because he was a Pharisee and a Jew of some standing, having great knowledge, having been taught by Gamaliel...(blessed ones, Paul was no newcomer, nor was he without the proper station in life or training or background) and therefore he was determined that his own people should hear him and be convinced and be converted.

And so it is with the heart of the one newly come into the path of Christ. There is always the desiring to take up one’s family, one’s own, one’s relatives, one’s community and karmic group and say, “See, I am one of you! I have seen a great light of God. I have received this blessing, I have been converted, I know the Lord Jesus Christ!”

And they would not hear it, as they stopped their ears in the presence of my preaching through Saint Stephen. For I did preach through him, by the power of the Holy Spirit, his final words spoken which remain for all time a testimony of the Word.

And they stopped their ears. They could not bear to hear it! They could not bear the sacred fire or the release of light because their hearts were evil. And immediately they took up stones against that Saint Stephen, and he gave up the ghost—but not before seeing my very face, the face of the Son of God in heaven. And I received him to myself.

Understand, therefore, that in my heart of love I understand your need to bring the greatest light to those who are familiar. And I understand sometimes what is a fallacy of thought—that because individuals are like you in background or in race or in karmic group or in a similar economic or educational situation, that they will, by the very fact of outer circumstance or perhaps bloodline, receive the mightiest teaching of all ages, which is: Christ in you, the hope of glory! These are my words to Paul, and these are the words he pronounced again and again. <5>

Therefore, not heeding the warning, he was almost murdered by those Asian Jews, who determined (they were so highly offended by the light) Imagine! that they would neither eat nor drink until they had murdered him. And therefore protected, the Romans sent an army to deliver him therefore to Felix where he would appear, and also to Agrippa, and finally take his case before Caesar himself before he could be delivered.

Such a tumult was made by the chief priests, the very same tumult they made against me. But I was then the ascended master, and therefore I placed my Presence over him. And it was the will of God and of my heart that he should be spared and go forth, having seen through the utter crassness and the materialism and the blasphemy of the Jews—that he might leave behind those who had chosen not to receive the Christ in me or him and go on to the Gentiles who had not the descent of Sanat Kumara, yet in whom there burned an innocence, a hope, a certain faith whereby the field of consciousness was fallow and could receive the spark of Christhood.

This is the meaning of the tremendous promise of Almighty God that those who would believe in my name, even through my disciples and apostles, that these should also become sons of God. <6> And did I not say that God could “of these stones raise up sons of Abraham”? <7>

Understand the mystery of Almighty God once and for all. It is not the physical temple you wear, it is what is inside! What is inside is the mystery of the kingdom of God, beloved hearts, and it matters not what evolution or what source or where that body temple originated in all of the experimentation of these systems of planetary bodies. It matters that the heart is inclined toward the Infinite.

And you will find that the blackest of souls may dwell in immaculate-appearing bodies, moving in the right circles. And you know these are the Watchers or their offspring, the giants or the demons themselves incarnate.

And therefore, there cannot be a flesh-and-blood lineage of any kind but only the infinite bequest of the Almighty of the lawful inheritance of the sons of God who take up their abode where least expected so that the proud may be humbled, so the rich may be embarrassed, so the poor may find the treasure of heaven and therefore shun the things of this world.

Therefore, I AM Jesus. I come to you in this body, and I would come to the world in your own body as well. I must give you, then, more than I can tell, but this I may say: that the presence of my being with you is the first step; but the quickening, the initiation, must come by an inner accord and an agreement that you understand first and foremost that Christ who comes to you to initiate you by the sacred fire of the Lamb of God must cause to have delivered to you a certain portion of your karma which must be transmuted within you ere you can move upon that life of service.

And therefore, by prior decision, you must know you are willing to bear—whether it be adversity, whether a physical burden, whether a hardship, whether grief, whether suffering loss here or there. You will understand that the coming into alignment of your soul with God must be an adjustment.

You have seen the adjustments that have been necessary this year in the nature kingdom for bringing into alignment certain discordant and karmic conditions in Southern California; you have seen the suffering of the people in Northern California and other areas of the nation and the world. And you have not always understood why, nor have the people who have cried out to God.

And yet they themselves have desired at inner levels of their souls’ evolution to go farther and higher in the Light. And therefore, they have agreed to that adversity and that burden while others themselves, refusing to bend the knee, have had the mountain fall on them, as the Rock itself, even the stone, must grind them to powder <8> lest their inordinate pride carry them off in some other area of destruction against the holy innocents.

Therefore, whether by judgment of Almighty God to the nonsurrendering self or by the delivery of a burden of great love, of personal and planetary karma, some have borne a little more inconvenience and indeed suffered loss for the sake of the total evolutionary chain of this planetary home. For the light-bearers also learn from the judgment of the souls of the wicked. And the wicked also learn, and they are somewhat contained—though not for very long. And the light-bearers themselves understand the path of karma even though their preachers will not preach it unto them.

So I preach it unto you, beloved, that you may understand that no matter what the current fad in doctrine in this or that century, the inexorable laws of Almighty God move on. And his mercy is with the light-bearer, and his judgment is there to curtail the fallen one until all balance be brought into manifestation.

Therefore, I ask you not, in this hour of this Easter Sunday, to make a fervent call to me as you would now, caught up as you are in the rapture of my love, but I ask you to write down a letter of your soul to your own Christ Self when you are alone with your thoughts and with your meditation and to surely set forth in writing what it is you are willing to bear in order to be my instrument.

And the reason I request this of you, beloved, is so that you will keep this letter in your Bible. Insert it in the Book of Acts so that you will read the life of Paul. And you will also have that life delivered to you—preaching therefore on these Sundays, as I shall, showing you step by step the way of overcoming and that you might be thoroughly acquainted with the path ahead.

Thus, it has come to pass often in previous dispensations that I have given my offer unto souls of light, and in a moment of great desiring and devotion, they have offered everything. And when I have given the initiation to them, they have utterly forgotten by the weight of their own personal karma that they even volunteered to go through an experience of hardship in order to balance that karma, in order to come to the place of being a part of the mission of the Apostle Paul.

Therefore, not desiring to place you in the jeopardy of the law of your own being and the law of your own word and the attendant problems of the forgetfulness of the outer mind, I desire that you should write your letter. I desire that you should keep it in your Bible as a sacred thing and review it from time to time, and also study the life of Paul and other saints and the martyrs and understand what truly is the meaning of the bearing of my light on earth.

For this initiation, when it come, cannot be turned back, cannot be taken from you. Once you receive it, you must move on with it. And I would not have you fail in the course of your discipleship for the point of Christhood that is truly the culmination of your life’s work on earth.

Therefore, my beloved hearts, I desire you to consider not only the initial burden of bearing to oneself some record of the past with which the Holy Spirit will not endure, but also to recognize day by day that as the light increases, as the light intensifies, there are many who will be offended—those who are of this world, those who exist to preserve the status quo of materialism, those who are called Jews who originally had a dispensation long, long ago even in other systems of worlds.

And they were given the light of the threefold flame, and instead of using it to glorify the Son of God, they used it to enhance the development of the intellect, to enhance their position of material control and scientific learning and the manipulation of genes and the creation of life and all manner of advancements that they then did bring with them to this planet, which were outpictured on the continent of Atlantis and even in previous ages not available in the records of outer history.

And therefore, these individuals became laggard evolutions. A laggard is not one who merely lags behind his evolution, beloved hearts. A laggard is one who takes the light of the threefold flame and inverts it to the perpetuation of matter rather than exalt it and thereby exalt the Son of God within himself. It is the utter denial of the living Christ no matter what that Christ is called, no matter what the religion.

It is not so much a problem of Christian and Jew; it is a problem of the individuals in every race and nation and religion who turn their back upon the initiation of the Son of God and desire the light without the sacrifice. And these are they who prefer to perpetuate this Cain civilization and this darkness. And therefore they become enraged when one soul of light breaks loose from the grip-hold of the toils and the toiler and does therefore receive the mighty light of the Holy Ghost that does sever the tie and the bondage.

It does set the captives free! It does break the chains of the prisoner and loose him and let him go! And no matter what crime one may have committed, in the hour of that freedom one is free, one is on the Path. And because of the quality of heart and the fire of the heart, though that one may err or stray, there is always the lovingness of the ascended masters to draw that one back to the Path and take that heart into a higher dimension of understanding.

This you must realize, beloved hearts, for some fear lest they should make one single mistake and be cast out of God’s kingdom forever. Beloved ones, this is the preaching of Satan, it is not the preaching of my heart. And therefore, there is no need for rigidity, but only diligence on the Path. For diligence is never rigidity, but it is a love so great that with all your might and heart you seek to serve always to the best of your understanding and to be God-taught and corrected when that understanding proves to be not the fullest.

But therefore, you may go on to a new chamber of the Mind of God and find there a higher definition of selfhood, a higher manifestation, and leave behind the old man. <9> And therefore that old man and his garment is cast into the fire. And I know it, and the Father knows it, and the angels know it, and the brothers and sisters in Christ know it.

But the fallen ones will hang on to the old image, and they will hold it up and they will say, “See what this individual did in 1913? They will never escape that sin—no, never—and forevermore be damned!” And they will go to every past embodiment, and they will go back and finger through the decades and attempt to place their hands upon what they think is or was your identity.

And never, never, never do these individuals ever take accountability for their own sin, much less the forgiveness of that sin which was given to them while they made an attempt to follow the path of discipleship, but in fact never did because the mercy of God was not in their hearts. Therefore, they could not forgive themselves any more than they can forgive anyone else on the Path, beloved hearts.

And so, you see, by nonforgiveness and nonmercy there is a nonhumility. There is actually the reservation in the heart that says, “I do not need Christ. I do not need his forgiveness. I can climb the ladder by my own personal and human excellence.” Therefore, there have been among you those who are humanists to the core, who desire human reward for human achievement, and the human consciousness is exalted.

And therefore, they move against the Light. They bring their suits against the Mother because they desire the reward in the human octave. And by desiring that reward, they lose entirely anything of good that might accrue to their karmic record whereby they could have some opportunity in the very day of judgment to balance their infamy against the Light, which is no new infamy but has been carried on for aeons.

Thus, the opportunity of the Mother flame is a final opportunity of teaching and the Path ere the judgment come. And they are self-judged. And nothing I might do or say—with all the power and the glory God has given unto me as the Saviour of the world—there is nothing I can do with the unfruitful heart even as there is nothing I can do with the tree that bears not fruit, but it must be withered and it must be cast into the fire. <10>

Realize then, that the fruit of the consciousness of Christ is mercy, is forgiveness, is transmutation. For change is the order of the Path, and all disciples are moving onward in leaving behind the old order. And when they leave it behind, that old man and that old order ceases to exist. And no one can dredge it up and say, “This is really what you are, this is really what he is! He is not what he pretends to be, for we know.”

And these individuals say, “we know,” because they themselves have the computerized mind of the laggard races—gathering data against the light-bearers, but only human data. For they have never, never in all eternity penetrated the secret chamber of the heart, nor have they ever observed the souls of the beloved in union with the living Christ in the presence of the Father dwelling in the temple, in that secret chamber where no man can enter except the soul himself drawn by God, drawing himself by love and pursuing a oneness with all fervor and innocence, purity and honor.

I therefore point out to you that these fallen ones, who would drive their armies against the Light and against The Faithful and True, did descend on the Apostle Paul. They moved against him. They formed their mobs. They hid in secret, they lay in wait as they did for my own soul as David. <11> As Saul’s henchmen sought to kill me, to surround my house and lie in wait, so they did for Paul. So they will do for you. And therefore, this also must be considered as you write this letter to the Christ of your heart and to my own Presence.

Not being familiar with all of these situations, you cannot deliberate on them if you do not know fully not only what are the physical consequences, but what are the forces of hell that come as a weight of the astral plane upon you to hold you down and to be there night and day so that your entire effort of your life must be to praise God, to preach his Word, and to release the light of the Word through you by the Holy Ghost. And that Holy Ghost is a consuming fire that consumes the very hatred that is projected against your own skin, against your own life, your effort, and the very eyes that burn with the coals of living fire.

Realize then that the continual pushing back of world hatred becomes the way of the apostle who would move among men and nations. Therefore I would suggest that you try on the shoes of the apostle before you come to me asking for the initiation of the Lamb, that you walk in the shoes of Paul or even walk in the footsteps of the Messengers you know today; and understand what is this life to be lived week in and week out, year in and year out—understanding that I, too, had no place to lay my head but went here and there because, you see, I was constantly moving to separate myself from those who lay in wait for me, even unto the hour of my crucifixion.

Thus, the very initiation itself was a relief—to finalize and have actualized the presence of my Christhood and it sacrificed for the world and given freely as the Life essence of my being, that I might move in the earth as one who is untouchable, not as the lowest caste of the planet but as the highest caste.

For you see, those who are resurrected in glory are the “untouchables,” and they cannot be touched by the fallen ones. And therefore, you will come to understand why the sons of God eventually take the ascension in the Light. For they bear so much of world hatred—and then, not because they weary of bearing the burden, but because they know in the ascended-master light body they may walk the earth midst their disciples and do more for them and protect them than remaining in the physical octave with so much concentration of hatred against the one self, and therefore against the followers of that self.

Realize, therefore, that I AM here in my Electronic Presence over you to now create the situation whereby though I AM ascended, I AM yet on earth. In one sense, the clock has advanced two thousand years and the new momentum of my lifestream of attainment of these years is in the earth. And in another sense, the clock has moved backward to the hours before my ascension.

For the Presence I place with you, as I have said, is the Presence which you can bear, and it was what the apostles could bear, also. Those who could not even recognize me in the resurrected state could, of course, not receive the full glory of the ascended-master Presence which I was able eventually to convey fully to Paul.

Therefore, it was John who carried the flame of my ascension, and the others were able to carry a certain essence up to the point of the resurrection. And thus, you see, each one would bear testimony by the level of his own witness. And this is why some of the witnesses differ, even those who might be a part of the original band.

Now understand that my placing of a Presence with you is so that you may have me with you and also that I may retain the frequency of the ascension flame. This has, therefore, a two-fold consequence. For having the power of the Presence, the Electronic Presence of my own flame with you, you receive a multiplication of your actions, of your service. You can go farther and contact more people, and I am there to assist you in sustaining the attempted setbacks or the moves against you.

On the other hand, the power of my Presence will draw an increased level of persecution, especially if you come under the initiation of the Lamb and desire the increase. It can be magnified tenfold. Thus realize that the advantage of accelerated chelaship and initiation unto the ascension must be weighed and balanced with the increment’s light and what it will produce as an alchemy in the world today, in the world thought, in the mass consciousness vis-à-vis your lifestream.

Now therefore, I have taken this hour of the celebration of the resurrection to speak to you concerning those things that have been upon my heart, beloved, for hundreds of years as I have walked by your side, as you have pursued the path of the Christian mysteries or been called by me in areas of service even through the last thousand years and beyond.

And as you have made progress, and as I have spoken with my Father, and as I have spoken with Maitreya regarding this hoped-for and longed-for dispensation that I might bring to you, their counsel has been that it could only come in the hour of the overlapping—the overlapping of the Piscean and Aquarian dispensations whereby the power of that blessed father Saint Joseph, as Saint Germain, might also be combined with my own.

And the dispensations and opportunities of the Aquarian age, being for that soul freedom and an opening of the way that could never have been opened in Pisces, would also be upon those disciples. And it was also necessary that upon you, my disciples, there might be the maximum attainment that you could achieve without my physical presence yet with my guidance and love and spirit with you in these centuries.

Therefore both have come to pass. You have moved forward on the path of discipleship. You have encountered Saint Germain. You have used the violet flame; you have indeed transmuted considerable karma, even before the divine encounter with me (and this the beloved Paul did not have when he was Saul). And so, you see, the violet flame in itself can cushion a good portion of this initiation. And this also, this fact, I would have you realize in understanding what is the possibility for us—you and I as two in one and three in one for the Holy Spirit with us, and the fullness of the Father in me, can achieve one by one upon earth.

I also tell you that the additional blessing of my Presence is that it does take some pressure off the Messenger herself, who is not in any way scheduled to take her leave of you and has no concern whatsoever or consideration to be moved by the hatred of the fallen ones and the betrayers but stands staunch in the earth to deliver the Word and to finish a mighty mission.

And therefore, you can understand that when I myself am duplicated many times over, there are many more targets. And therefore, by the division itself, each and every one who does accelerate into my ascended-master Presence will not necessarily have the full impact of Paul the apostle or others who have stood alone in past centuries without the additional dispensation of Saint Germain.

Now I have desired to make plain to you, out of the love of my heart, the various facets of cosmic law that pertain to each individual’s Homeward path. And the path back Home, beloved hearts, does entail many considerations. And you all have ties not only to wonderful people on earth but, I might say, to wonderful people in heaven—even ascended masters you have known and perhaps served or even done a favor for in past lives.

You have many more friends of light and cohorts than you realize, and so I have called this the Conclave of the Friends of Christ that you might realize that my friends are many in heaven. And therefore, when I espouse you as my friend here and now, you will increase therefore your circle of influence in the courts of heaven by the increase of my own friendship. For I have many among the ascended masters who will “go to bat,” as they say, for any disciple for whom I request a favor.

These favors are not the favoritism of a decadent system, but rather a favor that comes under the heading of the grace of God whereby a lifestream has truly earned a grace—by a kindness, by a love, by a stand for Truth, by an honor of heart, by taking a more difficult way, by self-effacement in allowing another to take the prize or the crown when perhaps it was not due.

Therefore, you see, the friends of freedom, friends of Saint Germain, and the friends of Christ are many. And we look forward to a wide-open dispensation and opportunity because of my descent. And all of my friends above and below will also seize upon this opportunity to increase light on the earth!

For with the coming of my Presence is also the coming of the judgment. For it is ever my purpose in the world that the Light should bind the darkness and those who willfully ensoul it, that the children of the light might be free to express that which is within.

Now, my beloved, in a great love of my heart for Paul, I surely give to you the tenderness, the closeness, the intimacy of our walk together. If you will study the existing records of Paul diligently, you will come to understand just how personal is the interaction. Paul’s sense of me was the sense of a friend almost physical who walked at his side.

He was ready to live or to die for me because I was so real to him— more real even than anything in this world. Yet I did not desire he should die, but live—and live to be the heart’s instrument of my own flame to those who would receive me, no matter what their background or karma.

Thus, my beloved, I have a continuing mission to do this. And those who are called the Gentiles, supposedly those who have not a threefold flame or very little soul substance, are the ones to whom the light must be passed even in this age. Thus we are in search of the remnant <12>—the true white fire core of the seed of Sanat Kumara, the seed of Abraham who have never sacrificed their light or threefold flame to material pursuits, to greed or its Moloch or to any of the other gods of the Canaanites.

We are in search of the remnant of the Christed ones, those ancient souls sponsored by Enoch, sponsored by Adam, sponsored by Seth and, ultimately, Noah. We are in search of these who must make their ascension at the conclusion of the coming dispensation, and we are in search of those new evolutions, the new light-bearers as well as those Gentiles who qualify as the bearers of the seed of Christ—new vessels.

Thus, see what is the mighty dispensation of the Lord. I repeat: Judge not, lest ye be judged. For whatsoever ye mete, it shall be meted unto you— measure for measure. <13> And this is the Law. For a judgment is a pronouncement concerning an individual; and when the pronouncement is made, immediately it must manifest upon oneself. I speak of that judgment which is the critical analysis and the attempt to define of what sort an individual is.

The true judgments of God are delivered by the Christ Self in the nonpossessive sense, remanding to him and to the Lords of Karma that judgment. Yet in the final hour of the Last Supper and in the final hours of my presence on earth, I did make the promise, “Whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained; whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted.” <14>

This is the power of the Holy Ghost when that initiation of the Holy Ghost is come upon you and the Christ in you is still the one who determines either the retention or the remitting of those sins. Realize then that always it is God within the individual who responds and makes the determination according to the level of initiation.

By the Sacred Heart, therefore, I AM the judge. I manifest my judgments true and holy and clear and just within my Messenger as I so choose. And I render judgments through your own Christ Self by your giving of the Word and the Call. And some of these are not even known to you, for it is Christ in you and not the outer mind that must make the determination. And the outer mind may not be ready for the full understanding. Yet, I AM within you! I AM the Lord Christ and I AM forevermore the manifestation of the Father, of the Son, of the Holy Spirit, and of the Mother.

For I AM THAT I AM. I AM that Word! I AM that incarnation of the I AM Presence! I AM that ascended-master light! And I do enter your temple in this hour, in the name of your own Christ Self. And I come to tarry there until the fullness of your joy be made known, until the fullness of your joy be made known unto me—until your joy be full and I may release to you that which Almighty God can and shall ordain according to your free will, and only your free will, united in Christ.

Therefore, in the hour that you ask, it will be your Christ Self, it will be my own Presence deliberating with your soul, and we will give you answer as to what part of your demand for initiation shall be met. For in the final analysis, it is the judgment of Christ in you, the eternal Christ that is the only hope of your glory through the sacred path of initiation.

This is my message which is the promise of the resurrection to those who can hear and understand and know the meaning of hearts one, congruous in harmony as in heaven and on earth.

I now prepare to baptize you. I desire to perform this, that you might know the baptism of my flame and heart to each little one and to each one who so chooses. Therefore, the touch, the gentlest of touch is all that is required, and your names may be read by our scribe. And thus, the name pronounced, given unto the angels, kept of record, will show that I have touched you this day and dedicated you to the will of God.

And therefore, if you would be baptized and receive the certificate of baptism, know that it is a baptism for eternity. It may not be increased or redone. And if you have been baptized by the Messengers before, you have received my blessing, I can assure you, and you cannot lose it. For it is sealed by God in a secret place of a certain chakra of your life.

The baptism is the sacrament, it is the blessing of the consecration of your life to the will of God which is your inner blueprint, given to you and agreed upon by you by your free will in the beginning. Baptism, therefore, does draw you into alignment and even gives some token of a rearrangement of karma for a better manifestation of that which is within.

The light may be received and make you feel uncomfortable for a while, but this is only the adjustment of the chakras that are truly changed and charged by this increment of fire promised of God and given in the beginning and in the ending of the journey of life. According to the divine plan, may this be the victorious incarnation of your soul unto the victory of the ascension in the Light.

I AM Jesus. Make no mistake, for it is not only possible but actual that I may speak to my own at will through those whom I appoint as Messengers from century to century. It is actual and physical that I may, through the Holy Ghost, reach my beloved as tangibly and, yea, more so from the ascended state as I did on the Galilean hillsides.

Yes, beloved, the Father has not cut off my communication with my own. And therefore take care against entering the sin of the gainsaying of Core. <15> For those who denied the mantle of Moses as the Messenger of God are the same ones who have denied my own mantle as Jesus, the mantle I placed upon Paul, and the mantle that I have placed upon this and every other representative of my heart. There are those who will not admit that the Christ Self of every man can speak, can work and perform. And I AM here to say that your Christ Self is ordained to speak to you of salvation—to reprove, chasten, love, correct, exalt, and uplift. And your soul has a right to that communion and that communication, even as you have a right to hear me through one whom I raise up and train and seal against the hordes of night.

For I tell you, no true Messenger of my heart could stand in the earth against the hordes of death except the dispensation of the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood be upon him. Understand and know, therefore, that God does pay the price, the Brotherhood does pay the price, I pay the price, and the Messenger pays the price to stand and still stand—to uphold what? To uphold the very principle of the Word and of communication that, by right, heaven may descend to earth at any moment and raise up a single soul in glory, that God may descend, that the Holy Spirit may be with you.

And you are not cut off or forsaken! You are not bereft! And there is no wall between heaven and earth except the wall you make, except the wall of the scribes and the Pharisees and their false doctrine and their cutting off of my message and my lifestream and my ongoingness.

I AM here to testify of me. For I will testify of me that you may know that I AM in the earth and that I go to El Salvador this day to bind those who move against my hearts of light! And I ask you to go with me in your finer bodies to overthrow the hordes of the planetary body determined to move against this nation through Central America. Will you come now? [“Yes!”]

Armies of heaven and Christian soldiers, we go! And we place our light bodies there, our ascended-master light bodies! For you now have my own, and I wear your physical forms. And I AM there, and we will roll them back and rout them out. But I must have the perpetual praise and Word and the dynamic decree, for my angels may only obey the mandates of the daily call. Therefore in the call itself is the salvation of this planet.

My beloved, come and be baptized. For I would also sanctify you to the mission in the heart of the ruby ray. I bleed for thee—which is to say, I release my heart’s essence, that you also might be comforted and drink of me while I AM drinking thee.

From Mother’s Heart at Sunrise Easter Morn:

Alleluia. He is risen! Alleluia. He is risen!

Alleluia, Christ is risen this day!

Beloved Father in heaven, Lord God Almighty, in the name I AM THAT I AM, we invoke here the mighty Angels of the Resurrection and the full power of the resurrection flame.

Lord Jesus Christ, come into our midst. Show yourself to us in this hour in the great victory of the Flame. O eternal Life, O thou Victor over Death and Hell, now prepare the way for our union through the Sacred Heart with the purest light of the resurrection.

O saints of the Most High God, O universal Light rejoice with us, for in Christ’s glory is the kindling light of our own victory this day!

Therefore, we sing to God. We sing to the Almighty! We sing to the Lord Jesus Christ, the mighty archangels, and his saints!

O Holy Spirit, in the name of the Father and the Son, let us commune with the body of God worldwide and worlds without end, that the oneness of our hearts’ love might celebrate with him the eternal victory for our earth over Death and Hell and war and strife and division among the brethren.

Let us rejoice in the mighty liberating power of the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit! Let us visualize the earth filled with the Holy Ghost as the violet flame frees all because of the victory of Jesus.

In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Mother, Amen.

...Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory? Is it not wonderful to discover our risen Lord and to know that we can follow him in the very same footsteps all the way Home?

Is it not a source of great rejoicing, this resurrection morn, to understand that even as he prophesied to his own that persecution would follow those who followed him, that he moved with boldness and joy, with love and obedience, to drink that wondrous cup that we might live?

This courageous heart, this living Saviour, the Son of man, also our brother and our friend (for he made us so in the final hours of his mission), shows us that we must do these things also.

Today we see world persecution in every nation of those who are the light-bearers. In every religion and in every walk of life, we find that there are the hearts who bear the flame as Christed ones, those who serve the light of the Mother, of the Buddha out of the East, of Lord Krishna, those who serve the Almighty One, bearing that light in the darkness of the world. These are the ones whom we comfort during this Passion Week; for they are one with him, not only in the sorrow gut in the great joy of drinking the cup—all of it.

Therefore, blessed hearts, we pray as he prayed for strength for all time to come to his own who would believe in that Light, that Word which came into the world, the true Light which lighteth every man, every woman every child. This is the great kindling light of Easter. Hallelujah! The mighty light of God in our hearts is the very personal Presence of Jesus.

Even so, Lord Jesus Christ, come quickly into my temple! And in so coming, Lord, let me know all of thee. Let me understand and walk with thee. And also rebuke me, Lord, if I might be reticent also to suffer with thee all these thins and thereby know thee in the fullness of the glory. So we would also know that Path.

We pray now, O God, for those who suffer in Poland, in Afghanistan. We pray for those who suffer in Central America, who meet the adversary face-to-face as the movements of world tyranny move against the light of the heart. For this is not a political struggle, it is the struggle of the darkness against the Light.

Therefore, Lord Jesus Christ and thou Faithful and True and beloved Maitreya, lead us, then, in the victory of the Light by the power of the Word with us. For we know the oneness of our hearts. And our prayer united in the communion of saints everywhere is truly the deliverance of those in our own nation who suffer under the yoke of an economic burden—those who are hungry, those who are not fed, those who are sick, those who need to know thy glory.

O Christ, come into thy temple! Come into the mosques and the synagogues. We welcome you into all places and especially into the hearts of the mighty souls of the ages who are following the thread of thy heart back to the Almighty Father. Though they know not the source of that thread. O God, illumine them, open their eyes. Forever as the disciples did not know thee, therefore have mercy upon those who do not know thee as thou art.

O beloved Jesus, we thank you with our heart’s deepest gratitude for showing us the way to run wit haste to meet the risen Saviour, to run with haste to meet our own deliverance. By the love in our hearts, therefore, we pray.

Transmute world hatred, and world condemnation of the Christ. Let there be a cessation of strife, brother with brother, in Northern Ireland! There be the flame of peace in Belfast! Let there be the flame of peace in every city and nation. Let there be the unification of nations.

Let the people of the Middle East this day, in the very land where thou wast and art victorious, know thee as the true Messiah—as the Coming One who is able to deliver all people, all nations from the darkness of sin to the victory of eternal Life.

Our prayer, O God, is that you might move us onward in the path of discipleship, that by thy Light and thy Presence with us we might glorify thee also as God has glorified thee.

In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Mother, Jesus Our Lord, seal the unborn! Seal the sweet children ag God’s heart coming to earth. Protect them from every danger and deliver to us, therefore, the Manchild as the Christed One in the heart of every newborn babe.

O Lord, break thou the Bread of Life with us, for we desire top drink of the blood is Light. And with this essence, the power of thy presence of Alpha and Omega, we are strengthened for our own walk and discipleship.

O Lord, we pray. We pray we might be worthy to be joint-heirs with thee, as it is taught to us by Apostle Paul. Make us one, O Lord, as thou art one in us—the Father and Son dwelling with us.

Now break this bread. Bless the wine, bless, the bread/ Change it with thy substance, even thy resurrected body and thy resurrected blood.

This we do in memory of thee, O Lord, knowing that it is by the transfer of thy Light that Christ is kindled in us, and we may walk, the earth as instruments of the Light.

In the name of the Holy Communion of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Mother with as, Amen.

...Lord God Almighty, in thy name I AM THAT I AM, in the name of Jesus Christ, send thy mighty archangels to the Middle East in this hour and let the flame of the Prince of Peace bind, then, all strife and war!

Let there be peace among the Jews, the Moslems, the Christians, the Palestinians. Let peace come now to the Middle East by the power of Elohim, by the power of Jesus Christ, by the power of Alpha and Omega.

We call forth the hosts of heaven and the mighty armies of The Faithful and True to bind, now, ever foe of peace, all war and the engines of war and all strife!

Blaze forth the mighty flame of the victory of Christ this day! And by the heart’s love of all the people of the world, let there be the descent of the Holy Spirit and the divine consciousness of the Almighty One to raise up these peoples that they might live in love and harmony and equality and with a homeland for everyone—and that the justice of Almighty God might reign. This is our prayer, Lord Jesus, in this Easter morn.

Blessed Mother, we call for thy intercession. Let there be the healing of that strife, that this hallowed land might serve all peoples as the place of the pilgrimage to the highest understanding of God.

In the name I AM THAT I AM, we call and, beloved Jesus, we accept thy promise—whatsoever we call unto the Father in thy name, so He will give it unto us. Let the fervor of our hearts be the fire that also is multiplied by thine own. And let the mighty alchemy of the Holy Spirit melt the elements of hatred, human pride and division, self-righteousness and all of these.

Let the power of the Holy Ghost melt now and dissolve and consume all records of centuries of strife and opposition. O by thy flame, O God, we accept it done this hour in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Mother, Amen.
