And I looked, and lo, a Lamb stood on the mount of Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. The mount of Sion represents the superior worlds.
The number one hundred and forty-four thousand of those who have their Father’s name written on their foreheads is a symbolic and Kabbalistic quantity. 144,000 is broken down in the following way:
1 + 4 + 4 = 9. This number nine is the Ninth Sphere (sex).
To receive the name of the Father on our foreheads and to be saved is only possible with the Great Arcanum.
And I heard a voice from heaven as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts (of Alchemy), and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth (with a great sacrifice).
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins (these are they who learned how to refrain the internal beast in order to avoid the ejaculation of the semen [orgasm]). These are they which followed the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
And I saw another Angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgement is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And there followed another Angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city (Paris, Rome, London, Berlin, cities of the United States, etc., in short, this present civilization), because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her Fornication.
And the third Angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his name, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy Angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.
All of the people who worship the beast of their passions, and his image (intellectualism without spirituality) will be tormented with fire into the abyss, with the fire and brimstone of their own desires.
To pay the whole of our karma here in this very place, this physical plane, is preferable than to pay it within the internal worlds.
This nemesis, this karma, no matter how grave it might be in the physical plane, becomes very sweet if we compare it with the karma in the Astral Plane and within the abyss.
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
The intellect is a very precious instrument for the Great Work of the Father when it is absolutely used for the pure service of the Spirit.
A mystic without intellect fails because of lack of culture. The intellect is satanic when it is used for the service of the internal beast.
The intellectual villains (cynics and skeptics) are the result of intellectualism without spirituality. These intellectual villains are the exact image of the beast.
The tenebrous ones torment each other within the abyss with their hatred, intrigue, calumny, anger, greed, lust, etc., and the smoke of their torment ascends for ever and ever.
The Saints know all of this. For this reason they are patient.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from hence forth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
Something continues to exist when the human being dies. This something is the thought of all our desires. The whole of our thoughts of desire continue, and this is already demonstrated. The sum of all those mental values continue.
The total addition of all of those values of desire constitute the “I,” the myself, the ego, our false individuality. This “I” is the one that reincarnates in order to satisfy its desires.
Therefore, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord: they will enter Nirvana forever, for whosoever decapitates and dissolves the “I” dies in life, dies in the Lord.
The Truth cannot enter where the “I” abides. The Lord is the Truth.
The Lord Buddha taught us: one Essence, one Law, and one Goal.
The Essence is the Ens Seminis, the Law is the Arcanum A.Z.F., and the Goal is Nirvana. Thus, this is what the Buddha said:
If thou understand, O Kasyapa! that all beings are of the same essence (the Ens Seminis), and that there is only one and unique truth (the Christ), and if thou lives in accordance with this comprehension, thou shall reach Nirvana.
The Tathagata gives happiness and joy to the whole world, as the cloud that pours its waters (semen) over the just ones and the sinners (everybody receives it), having the same feelings of compassion for the great and small; for the wise and for the ignorant; for the virtuous and for the sinner.
The vast and swollen cloud impregnated with water pours into rain over pastures, thorny bushes, mountains, valleys, orchards and country fields. And all drink the water (semen) of this rain which is the same one essence. And trees, and plants, and herbs, mix and flourish and fructify, each one in accordance to its kind and nature; rooted to the same earth. All of these plants in the field or in the orchard, receive the same water (semen) which vivifies and gives life to all.
The Tathagata knows, O Kasyapa! the Law which virtue is the Knowledge and which goal is the peace of Nirvana (this law is the Arcanum A.Z.F.).
This law is the same for everybody but does not manifest itself in the same way for everyone, but in accordance with their needs. In the beginning the plenitude of this knowledge is not given equally, but in accordance with the predisposition of everyone. In ancient times, the Arcanum A.Z.F. was only taught in secrecy to the initiates.
Buddha taught this key unto his well-prepared disciples.
Whosoever wants to die in the Lord must wash their feet in the waters of renunciation. Thus, this is how the Lord Buddha taught Chastity as a basic foundation of initiation.
Buddha asked his disciples, "Tell me, O disciples, when is a disciple no longer a disciple?"
This is textual from the gospel of the Lord Buddha, a transcription of the Pitakas or sacred scriptures of Buddhism. (See the book of Yogi Kharishnanda).
The Master Huiracocha gave the supreme key of Chastity in Latin, as follows: “Inmisio membri virili in vagina feminae sine ejeculatium seminis.”
Whosoever wants to die in the Lord must practice the Ten Commandments for the new era:
- First: Thou shalt love thy internal God, and thy neighbor as thy Self.
- Second: Thou shalt study the secret doctrine of the Savior of the world.
- Third: Thou shalt never slander thy neighbor, neither shalt thou utter immodest or vain words.
- Fourth: Thou shalt sacrifice the self for the love of mankind and to love thy worst enemies.
- Fifth: Thou shalt obey the will of the Father on Earth as it is in heaven.
- Sixth: Thou shalt not commit Fornication, neither Adultery, in thy thought, words, and deeds.
- Seventh: Thou shalt fight against the world, the demon, and the flesh.
- Eighth: Thou shalt be infinitely patient and merciful.
- Ninth: Thou shalt practice the Arcanum A.Z.F. with thy spouse.
- Tenth: Thou shalt wash thy feet in the waters of renunciation.
You will die in the Lord with these Ten Commandments.
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of Man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another Angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest on the earth is ripe. The time has arrived!
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. The time for reaping has arrived!
And another Angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
And another Angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
The power of the fire lies in the sex. Angels and devils, Gods and beasts are born from sex.
Man is the priest and the woman the altar. Through sex we sow and through sex we harvest.
If the harvest is good, then we have a harvest of Gods.
If the harvest is evil, then the harvest is lost within the abyss.
The wise North American Kabbalist Manly P. Hall, who was cited by the great Master of the White Lodge, Dr. Francisco A. Propato, said in his book Occult Anatomy of Man the following: “Those who will be incapable of lifting the fire of the spinal medulla throughout their Shushumna canal, will be cast aside into a lateral kingdom, similar to that of the present apes (monkeys, chimpanzees, etc.).”
And the Angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. The fulfilment of this nineteenth verse of the fourteenth chapter of Revelation is definitive.
The Angel cast the whole vine of the earth into the great winepress of the wrath of God. The great White Lodge knows that human evolution on Earth is lost.
Human evolution totally failed and this humanity is sinking into the abyss.
And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
This Kabbalistic quantity is broken down as follows: 1 + 6 = 7.
This human race will expiate with supreme pain all of their evil deeds.
The three ineffable beings of this fourteenth chapter of Apocalypse, correspond to the three aspects of humanity: the world, family, and the human being.
These three Angels of the Most High are punishing countries, families, and human beings.
The Law is the Law and the Law is fulfilled. These three Angels obey the Son of Man.
The Lord of all powers is seated on a cloud of glory.
The Lord of all perfections has on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
