The following text was utilized as the basis for discussion in a lecture of the free online course about the real meaning of the Book of Revelation.
Here we present the first chapter of the book of Revelation with clarifications and meanings added in parentheses. In the next article, we explain the meaning of this chapter.
The (Kabbalistic) Revelation of Jesus Christ (the Savior who baptizes with Fire), which (his Inner) God (the Monad) gave unto him, to show unto his servants (or Bodhisattvas) things which must shortly come to pass (in the Initiation); and he sent and signified it (through “Daath”) by his angel (or Atom Nous within the heart) unto his servant John (or Intuitive Solar Mind):
Who (through the conquest of himself) bare record of the word (by incarnating the Verb) of God (or sharp sword with two edges that protrudes from his mouth), and of the testimony of (his Inner, Individual) Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw (with the eyes of his Spirit).
Blessed is he that reads and they that hear (with the Chakra Vishuddha) the words (of the Christ-Mind) of this prophecy and (who by developing internally) keep those things which are written therein: for the time (of the development of the Interior Solar Man unto the image of the Elohim) is at hand.
John (the Intuitive, Abstract Mind “Tiphereth” united to Gedulah, the Hum-Manas) to the seven churches (or Seven Chakras) which are in Asia (Assiah, the word of Matter and Action, the physical body or fourth manifested world according to Kabbalah): Grace (the fire of Hod, the Holy Spirit) be unto you, and peace from him, (from the Ancient of Days), which is, and which was, and which is to come (be that which Thou art and Thou shalt be of Ketheriel); and from the seven (fires or Holy) Spirits (or serpents of fire and light) which are (Lifted) before his throne (the Cerebrospinal-Nervous-System);
And from (INRI, the divine fire or) Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness (in the Ninth Sphere), and the first begotten (fire) of the (ones who are) dead (within themselves in their animal passions), and the Sovereign (Divine Fire in the Spinal Medulla) of the kings (Malachim) of the earth. Unto him that (when intermingled with our sinner human soul) loved us, and washed us from our sins (or Karma) in his own blood (or astral fire in Sexual Alchemy),
And had (spiritually) made us kings (Malachim) and priests (of Nature) unto God and his Father; to him be glory (Hod) and dominion (of the human nature) for ever and ever. Amen.
Behold (in the Heaven of Gedulah, the Spirit, the Solar Christ), he comes within (the) clouds (as the lightning that with its thunder or Verb reveals the Kabbalistic mystery); and every (spiritual) eye shall see him (in the internal worlds), and they (the blind) also (in the infernal worlds) which (with they evil deeds and ignorance) pierced him: and all kindred (or liberated parts of the Being) of the earth (Assiah, physical body) shall wail because of him; Even so, Amen.
I am Alpha (because in the beginning was the Verb in Daath) and Omega (because through the transmutation of the “Sperm and Ovum” in the priesthood of “Yesod” the word was made flesh in) the beginning and the ending (of the Initiation), saith the Lord (IAO), which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Shaddai El Chai in sex).
I John (IEOUAMS, the Hum-Manas “Tiphereth” or Superior Man), who also am your brother, and companion in (the) tribulation (of my Initiation through my own Karma), and in the (Internal) kingdom (of the superior heavens of consciousness) and patience of (my individual particular savior) Jesus Christ (who by means of profound meditation), was in the isle (or pineal gland seat of the human soul and the atom of the Holy Spirit) that is called Patmos (because is beyond the concrete mind), for the word of God (or mantra: Gate, Gate, Para-Gate, Para-Sam-Gate, Bodhi Swaha), and for the testimony of (my fires of chastity) Jesus Christ (IEOUA).
I (the consciousness free from the ego) was (united) in the (the seventh body or Atman, my) Spirit on the Lord's day (Sunday, in other words, I was in a solar ecstasy united to PANDER, the Solar Logos), and heard (beyond silence) behind me (exactly in my spinal medulla of my Spiritual Nature) a great voice, as of a trumpet (the sound of the Christic Fire or Kundalini),
Saying, I am Alpha (in Daath) and Omega (in Yesod), the first (Man and his seven serpents of fire) and the last (Man and his seven serpents of light) and, What thou sees (with the eyes of the Spirit), write (with the memory of your psychological work within your consciousness) in a (human) book (of seven volumes), and send (or develop) it unto the seven churches (or seven magnetic centers or chakras) which are in Asia (Assiah, your spinal medulla and connected to your Endocrine glands); unto Ephesus (Gonads), and unto Smyrna (Uterus or Prostate), and unto Pergamos (Liver, Pancreas), and unto Thyatira (Heart), and unto Sardis (Thyroids), and unto Philadelphia (Pituitary), and unto Laodicea (Pineal).
And I turned (with my interior consciousness within my spiritual nature) to see the voice (the incarnated Verb) that spoke with me (within my interior). And being turned (towards my vertebral column), I saw (with the clairvoyant eye) seven golden candlesticks (seven spinal medullas, one within each one of my bodies);
And in the midst of (each of) the seven candlesticks one (Divine Fire) like unto the Son of man (the Christ of Solar Fire), clothed with a (fiery) garment down to the foot (Malkuth), and girt about the chest (Tiphereth) with a golden girdle (of chastity, love and beauty).
His head (Kether) and his hairs were (immaculate) white like (the light, like) wool, as white as snow; and his (infinite spiritual) eyes were as a flame of fire (that penetrates everything);
And his feet (in Malkuth) like unto fine brass (symbolizing the copper and tin, woman and man sexually united in a sacred copulation) as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice (or solar verb) as the sound of many (sexual) waters (that are transmuted by means of Thelema).
And he had in his right hand (in his upright acts of chastity) seven stars (or seven active chakras) and out of his mouth (chakra Vishuddha) went a sharp two-edged sword (the parabolic word of double Kabbalistic sense: literal and spiritual) and his (luminous) countenance (aura) was as the (red) sun (of summer, the Red Christ, the Verb of Aquarius) shineth in his (ray of) strength.
And when I saw him (inside of me), I fell at his feet (in Malkuth) as dead (in the Initiatic Resurrection). And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not (because the Earthly Man has to die); I am the first (Man and his seven serpents of fire) and the last (Man and his seven serpents of light):
I am he that lives (because am “INRI” divine and eternal fire), and was dead (within you when you were fornicating); and, behold (that through scientific chastity), I am alive (within you) for evermore, Amen; and have the keys (or clues to liberate you) of hell (where you are because of the Karma of your past deeds) and of (the second) death.
Write (practice with your consciousness) the (spiritual) things which (through comprehension) thou hast seen, and the things which are (comprehended), and the things which shall be (comprehended) hereafter;
The mystery of the seven stars which thou saw in my right hand (these are the seven chakras or spiritual senses), and the seven golden candlesticks (these are the seven spinal medullas of each one of your seven bodies of chastity). The seven stars are the (seven atomic) angels (or messengers that like chakras of lotus flowers that with its steams sprout out) from the seven churches (that are within your seven spinal medullas): and the seven candlesticks (or seven spinal medullas) which thou saw are (also) the seven churches (or seven temples, solar bodies of the Man of the Seventh Day where Jehovah Elohim “the Holy Spirit or Creative Fire Kundalini” officiates).
