For the sake of this poor humanity whom we greatly adore, we, the brothers and sisters of the temple, have suffered greatly on this night. The sky of this night is dressed with black, stormy clouds.
These are lion-colored clouds, illuminated by a lightning flash. The sky is full of lightning, thunder, tempests, rain, and very great hailstones.
During this night, we, the brothers and sisters, have entered through the doors of the temple, filled with a very great tribulation. We have suffered immensely for the great orphan whom we love dearly. Poor humanity! Poor mothers! Poor elders!
We, the brothers and sisters, have lain upon beds of profound pain.
An apocalyptic drama is being represented in the temple.
We, the brothers and sisters, are simultaneously spectators and actors of this sacred drama.
The priests joined two things: a child and a book. The sealed book shines upon the chest of the apocalyptic child. The fine and cruel hemp cords envelop the delicate and tender body of the beautiful, anguished, and suffering child. The cruel ropes pass over the sealed book. The book is upon the immaculate chest of the child.
This child is our beloved Son.
We beseech, we cry, we ask for mercy, then the anguished child and the sealed book are liberated.
Now we open the book, and with it we prophesy to a woman dressed in purple and scarlet. This is the great harlot whose number is 666, and with whom all the kings of the Earth have committed adultery.
This woman listens to us and says, “I did not know that you could prophesy me with that book.”
To which we respond, “We came to prophesy and to teach with this book.”
Thus, this is how we spoke to the woman dressed in purple and scarlet, and as we spoke with her, the images of five mounts passed by in our imagination. These are the five root races that have been. Each root race ends with a great cataclysm.
Our fifth root race will soon come to its end.
“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
“And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
“And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.” —Revelation 5:1-3
Truly, this book can only be opened by the incarnated Lamb.
“And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
“And one of the elders saith unto me, weep not: behold, the lion of the tribe of Juda (the Word, who is the initiator of the age of Aquarius), the root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” —Revelation 5:4-5
This is ignored by this humanity, the great harlot.
“And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” —Revelation 5:6
They were sent in order to work in accordance with the law.
“And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints.
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” —Revelation 5:7-9
Really, the sealed book can only be opened by the Lamb.
“And hast made us unto our (internal) God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” —Revelation 5:10
Really, our internal God is the king and the priest.
“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne (which is in heaven and within the heart of the human being) and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
“And every creature which is in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
“And the four beasts (of sexual alchemy) said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.” —Revelation 5:11-14
Really, the internal Lamb of every human being is absolutely perfect and worthy of all honor. We, the human beings, are nothing but poor, sinning shadows.
Some people say, “I believe in the ‘I want,’ in the ‘I can,’ as well as in the ‘I do.’” This is what they consider to be positive. But, in reality, these people fortify Satan with these affirmations.
The Lamb is not the “I.” The Lamb is neither a superior “I,” nor by a long shot an inferior “I.”
When the Lamb says, “I AM,” we must interpret this as, “HE IS,” because the Lamb is the one who is uttering it, and not the human being.
The Lamb is deprived of the “I” and deprived of any seal of individuality, as well as of any vestige of personality.
If your internal God is the god of a sun or the god of any constellation, then you must be even more humble, since you are nothing but a poor bodhisattva, or in other words, a poor human being, more or less imperfect.
You must not commit the sacrilege of saying, “I am such God, or the great master so-and-so,” because you are not the master; you are not the Lamb. You are only the sinning shadow of the one who has never sinned.
The “I” is formed with the atoms of the secret enemy. This “I” wants to stand out, to rise to the top, to be noticed, to climb to the top of the ladder, etc. But, you must recognize your own misery, and praise and worship the Lamb.
You must vanish and look for shelter within the nothingness, since you are nothing. Thus, through this way of supreme humbleness, you will return to the innocence of Eden. Then, your soul will be absorbed within the Lamb. The spark will return to the flame from where it came forth.
You are the spark; the Lamb is the flame.
So, in the days when your soul returns to the Lamb, you must multiply your vigilance. Remember that the “I” sprouts as an evil weed. Only the Lamb is worthy of any praise, honor, and glory.
You must not divide yourself into two “I's,” one superior and another inferior, since only one “I” exists, and the so-called “superior ‘I’” is nothing but a refined concept of Satan. This is a sophism of the “I.”
You must not desire anything; kill every desire of life. Remember that the “I” is nourished with every desire. You must kiss the feet of the leper. You must dry the tears of your worst enemies. Do not hurt anyone with your words, and do not search for shelter, because you must resolve to die in all of the planes of cosmic consciousness.
Give away your goods to the poor, give away the last drop of your blood for the sake of this poor suffering humanity, renounce all happiness. Then, the immolated Lamb will enter into your soul. He will make his abode within your soul.
Some philosophers affirm that Christ brought the doctrine of the “I,” because he said:
“I AM the way, the truth, and the life.” —John 14:6
Certainly, the Lamb said, “I AM,” and only the Lamb can say “I AM.” This phrase was spoken by the Lamb, but this phrase cannot be uttered by us (poor sinning shadows) because we are not the Lamb.
Really, the exact and axiomatic translation of “I AM,” which was uttered by the Lamb, must be as follows: “HE IS the way, the truth, and the life.”
“HE IS” because HE was the one who uttered it. We did not utter it; the one who uttered it was HIM, HIM, HIM.
HE lives within the unknown profundities of our Being. “HE IS” the way, the truth, and the life. He transcends any concept of “I,” any individuality, and any vestige of personality.
“...worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” —Revelation 5:12
He is the only one worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof.
The Lamb is the divine Augoeides. Truly, the only great and divine one is the immolated Lamb.
