And there was given me a reed like unto a rod (the staff of Brahma, the rod of Aaron, symbol of the spinal medulla and of its marvellous medullar canal. The ascending flux of the creative energy of the Holy Spirit along the medullar canal converts us into Gods): and the Angel stood saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. - Revelation 11:1-19
The human being is the temple of God and this temple has to be measured with a reed. If initiation is what you seek, then write this initiation upon a rod.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
Certainly, the court that is without the temple is the court of the profane people, the court of the fornicators. They will tread under foot the holy city for forty and two months; they profane the sacred city of nine doors.
This holy city is the human being, and the Ninth Sphere or the ninth door is the sex. The fornicators have tread under foot the holy city for forty and two months.
The science of the numbers show us that 4 + 2 = 6. The Kabbalists know that the Sixth Arcanum of the Tarot is The Lover. Six is also the number of the great Harlot that is repeated three times: 666.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
We write this quantity in the following way: 1,260, and if we make the Kabbalistic addition of the numbers among themselves, we have the following result: 1 + 2 + 6 + 0 = 9. Nine is the Ninth Sphere. This Ninth Sphere is sex.
The great Master Hilarion IX said that in ancient times to descend into the Ninth Sphere was the maximum ordeal for the supreme dignity of the Hierophant. Hermes, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Dante, Zoroaster, Mohammed, Rama, Krishna, Pythagoras, Plato, and many others had to descend into the Ninth Sphere in order to work with the fire and the water, which is the origin of worlds, beasts, human beings, and Gods. Every authentic White Initiation begins here.
The fire and the water rise through two sympathetic cords that are entwined around the spinal medulla. In the East, these two witnesses are Ida and Pingala.
F + W = C. Fire plus water equals Consciousness. The fire and the water produce the awakening of the cosmic Consciousness. Thus, this is how we prophesy for a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth and doing much fasting and penance.
Through these two sympathetic cords, which are the two witnesses, is where the fire and the water of the sex ascend.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth (our internal God).
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
It was necessary for the Lord to be killed in this manner. Now we must resuscitate Him within ourselves. The two witnesses have the power to kill and give life.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues as often as they will.
If the sacred serpent ascends, it opens heaven, but if it descends, it shuts heaven. The waters are turned to blood when we fornicate, and the affliction of the abyss is more terrible than death.
Fornication is the sin against the Holy Spirit. Whosoever fornicates sins against their own body. Thus, this is the way in which this fornicating humanity is often smitten with all plagues.
These two witnesses have the power of awakening the Kundalini (this is the fire of Pentecost).
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
The prophets prophesied in ancient times. Then, the two witnesses gave their testimony and they announced the times of the end. These two witnesses also gave testimony of the light, and this light came into the darkness, but the darkness knew it not.
The beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit, the Satan that everybody carries inside, made war against them, overcame them, and killed them, because this humanity delivered themselves to Fornication.
The bodies of these two witnesses lay in the street of this great city which is “Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth,” which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. This is this valley of bitterness where this humanity (the great Harlot) lives.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Jesus Christ, the great Hierophant, said:
I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. - Matthew 26:61
The body of the Savior of the world remained three days within its holy sepulchre. The prophet Jonah was three days inside the belly of the whale.
Actually, the bodies of the two witnesses still do not deserve to descend into the holy sepulchre, because they are filled with Fornication. Since this humanity delivered themselves to Fornication, their two witnesses are dead.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
The words of the prophets are a torment for the dwellers of the Earth.
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
These three days symbolize the Thrice-Spirit of the human being, the perfect Holy Trinity. The resurrection of the dead comes after the third day.
We have suffered much for three days; now the two witnesses will resurrect.
And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Now, these two witnesses are ascending with the Arcanum A.Z.F. because we are in the times of the end. This is the epoch of the accomplishment of this prophecy.
The resurrection of these two witnesses is absolutely a sexual problem.
These two witnesses resurrect when the man and the woman know how to withdraw from the sexual act without spilling the entity of semen (without reaching the orgasm). Thus, this is how the force of the Holy Spirit ascends inwards and upwards through these two witnesses.
So, these two witnesses are the two marvellous sympathetic canals of our creative energy.
The times of the end have arrived!
The divulging of the Great Arcanum, the resurrection of the two witnesses, and the final great cataclysm stamp with exactitude the end of this Aryan Root Race.
The human being who will not accept this scientific Chastity will sink into the abyss.
A dreadful cataclysm will occur. However, not a single human being can know the date of that day and hour.
A planetary collision will occur, a collision of worlds, and only those who have made their two witnesses resurrect within themselves will be saved.
And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
A tenth part of this great Babylon will fall. Thus, this is how the wheel of destiny will turn and this great harlot (humanity) will sink into the abyss
The number 10 is the wheel of destiny, the Tenth Arcanum of the Tarot.
“...And in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand.” This is the Seventh Arcanum, which is expiation, karma, punishment.
Certainly, the great harlot will die, all lineages, nations, and tongues, as many as the sands of the sea.
The two witnesses will talk before the great cataclysm that is approaching.
Before the dreadful catastrophe that is approaching, the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the human multitudes from Mars, Mercury, Venus, and other planets will come in their cosmic ships to the planet Earth.
These brethren humanities from other planets will come in order to teach us law and order.
So, we will have the opportunity of listening to the words of the Son of Man.
Then... Woe to those who will abhor the Son of Man! Woe to those who abhor the Great Arcanum... Woe to those who will continue spilling the semen!
The human beings of this planet Earth have thrown themselves into the conquering of space, and soon they will knock upon the doors of other inhabited worlds with their ships.
The consequences of their audacity will be the answer of the Son of Man. Then, “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him.”
The Son of Man is the divine humanity. The Son of Man is represented by the superior multitudes of other inhabited worlds.
Every cosmic rocket launched up into space is placing us closer to this great cosmic event. Then, woe to those who will not accept the last words of the Son of Man!
Afterwards, the great cataclysm will occur!
The second woe is past; and behold, the third woe comes quickly.
And the seventh Angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, we give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come, because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
And the nations were angry, and the wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judge, and that shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. (These are the vultures of war and the scientists of the Antichrist.)
The Final Judgement has already occurred. It took place on the 12th of April, 1950. Then, the Gods judged the great harlot (this humanity) and considered it unworthy.
The sentence of the Gods was: To the abyss! To the abyss! To the abyss!
This planet Earth will pass through a process of planetary disintegration and integration.
Nobody knows the day and the hour but the Father.
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
The Ark of His Testament is the sex. This Ark of His Testament is the Ark of Science, the Ark of Testimony, as well as the Ark of Alliance.
The Rod of Aaron, which is the symbol of the phallus, and the Cup of Omer filled with the manna, which is the symbol of the uterus, are inside the Ark of His Testament. (See Exodus 16: 31-36).
The key of all powers is found in the union of the phallus and the uterus. The tablets of the law are also inside the Ark of Science. Whosoever violates the divine Decalogue will sink into the abyss.
To achieve the miracle of our salvation is only possible through the Ark of His Testament.
