               Commentaries on the
                 Revelation of John

                   

The Revelation to Yochanan

Chapter 1

________________________

{1:1} This is the Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah,

This is the Knowledge of Truth Revealed to Jesus the ‘M’essiah through the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead". Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Mohammed received other, similar Knowledge through this Vision and Revelation.

which God gave him to show to his servants the things which must happen soon,

This does not refer specifically to the fulfillment of the Prophecies in the space-time Reality, but  is a reference to the experience of the Vision of the "Son of man" Itself.

which he sent and made known by his angel

The Vision of the "Son of man".

to his servant, Yochanan, {1:2} who testified to God's word, and of the testimony of Yeshua  the Messiah, about everything that he saw.

{1:3} Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things that are written in it, for the time is at hand.

The change of consciousness through the receiving of the Vision occurs in an instant.

{1:4} Yochanan, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia:

John is said to be on the island of Patmos; that is, external to and observing the seven assemblies, which are a metaphor for the observing consciousness and the seven chakras of kundalini yoga (or, to Western medicine, the seven principal ganglia of the sympathetic nervous system).

Grace to you and shalom, from God, who is and who was and who is to come;

The Universality of God in time and out of time, and in the manifestation of Truth as at the Creation.

and from the seven Spirits who are before his throne; {1:5} and from Yeshua the Messiah, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead,

Death here refers to the loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth; that is, the normal human consciousness. Thus, the "firstborn of the dead" refers to the regaining of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

and the ruler of the kings of the [1>]eretz[<1].

In this context, not a political term but relative to the elements of consciousness of the normal human consciousness.

To him who loves us,

This is not "love" in the common understanding of the term.

and washed us from our sins by his blood;

This is not Paul’s doctrine of 'vicarious atonement'.

What it refers to is the willingness of Jesus to sacrifice his life so that those who loved him would receive the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead"--as is metaphorically described in Matthew 27:52-53.

{1:6} and he made us to be a kingdom, [2>]Kohanim[<2] to his God and Father;

These are those with the Knowledge of Truth; in other words, those who have received the Revelation of the Memory of having been Created by God.

to him

to the Father

be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amein. {1:7} Behold, he is coming with the clouds,

This is a description of the Vision as in Daniel especially. See also Psalm 18:7-15.

and every eye will see him,

These 'seven eyes' are symbolic of the Seven Churches or the seven chakras of 'kundalini' yoga--all of which 'observe' or 'receive' the Vision of the "Son of man".

including those who pierced him.

This is a symbolic of the sensations, perceptions, reflexes, emotions and thoughts characteristic of the normal human consciousness in its opposition to the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth or 'observing consciousness'.  (See also the Gospel of Thomas in the Nag Hammadi Codices.)

All the tribes of the [3>]eretz[<3] will mourn over him.

Inasmuch as this Vision results in the complete annihilation of the normal human consciousness or linear consciousness, the experience of this Vision is considered to be an unmitigated disaster or tragedy by that normal human consciousness.

Even so, Amein.

Even so.

{1:8} "I am the Alef and the Tav," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, [4>]Shaddai[<4]."

Shaddai means "the God of Heaven", emphasizing the Power and Might of the Creator.

{1:9} I Yochanan, your brother and partner with you in oppression,

The teaching and practices of Paul and his (Christian) followers would have been an oppression to those like John who understood the Teaching of Jesus concerning the "resurrection of the dead" and the Knowledge of Truth. Paul had no such Knowledge, having succumbed to the temptations of both pagan metaphysical philosophy and idolatry.

kingdom, and perseverance in Messiah Yeshua, was on the isle that is called Patmos because of God’s Word and the testimony of Yeshua the Messiah.

Probably in fear of his life from Paul and the other Christians.

{1:10} I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day,

The seventh day is symbolic language referring to the Revelation of Truth.

and I heard behind me

The consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth or "observing consciousness" is the consciousness with which man was Created by God. Thus, it is prior in time, as well and ‘under’ or ‘behind’ the normal human consciousness or linear consciousness; that is, the consciousness which resulted from 'the Fall'.

a loud voice, like a [5>]shofar[<5]

The sound of a trumpet or horn. See also the account in Genesis of the battle of Jericho--understood esoterically as a metaphor for the conflict between the Knowledge of Truth and the structures of the normal human consciousness.

{1:11} saying, "What you see, write in a book and send to the seven assemblies: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and to Laodicea."

The seven 'churches' or 'chakras'

{1:12} I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. Having turned,

The meaning of the word 'repentance' is to rethink or to observe again.

I saw seven golden menorot. {1:13} And among the menorot was one like a son of man, clothed with a robe reaching down to his feet, and with a golden sash around his chest.

{1:14} His head and his hair were white as white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire. {1:15} His feet were like burnished brass, as if it had been refined in a furnace. His voice was like the voice of many waters.

A multi-dimensional symbol which refers not only to the feminine knowledge which originates in the 'unconscious', but also to the sound which accompanies the Vision of the "Son of man".

{1:16} He had seven stars in his right hand.

The churches are under his control.

Out of his mouth proceeded a sharp two-edged sword.

The sword of Truth to oppose the sword of pleasure/pain of the rider on the Red  Horse.

His face was like the sun shining at its brightest.

This is not the "sun" of the normal human consciousness but the Light of Truth.  See Isaiah about the "light of the sun being 7 times brighter".

{1:17} When I saw him, I fell at his feet like a dead man.

This is to be understood literally.

There is an experience which occurs prior to the Vision of the "Son of man" by which a very sharp discontinuity is created between the normal human consciousness and the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth. The experience of the Vision of the "Son of man" then creates a second  sharp discontinuity with the first sharp discontinuity with the normal human consciousness. This is also referred to obliquely in Daniel and in 1 Enoch in reference to the Vision.

The instantaneous annihilation of the normal human consciousness cannot occur without a sharp discontinuity in the life of the human organism.

He laid his right hand on me, saying, "Don't be afraid. I am the first and the last, {1:18}and the Living one.

This is referred to as the 'first resurrection'; that is, the resurrection of a person to life after he has seen the Vision. Mohammed refers to this obliquely in the Koran.

I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.

These words cannot have the common meaning attributed to them by the normal  human intellect. They refer to the Eternal nature of Truth, not to the continuing existence of any metaphysical 'soul'.

Amein. I have the keys of Death and of She'ol.

This is of Knowledge of the full dimension of human consciousness from its origin to its annihilation--from the First Seal through all Seven Seals.

{1:19} Write therefore the things which you have seen,

The Vision

and the things which are,

Of the structure of consciousness and Reality

and the things which will happen hereafter;

Prophecies of the "time of trouble" by Daniel, Ezekiel and Zechariah, for example.

{1:20} the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden menorot. The seven stars are the angels of the seven assemblies.

Multi-dimensional symbol referring not only to the emotions experienced at each "church" or "chakra"; but, also, to the specific deterioration of consciousness by multiplication of reflex, or the external manifestation of that which pertains to each "church" or "chakra".

The seven menorot are seven assemblies.

Churches or chakras.

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 2

________________________

{2:1} To the angel of the assembly in Ephesus write:

This is the First Church but corresponds to the second chakra (the genital chakra, representing "will" in kundalini yoga). The emotion associated with the First Church and second chakra is anxiety.

Will power, discipline, and a rigid adherence to the Moral Law was the principal focus Law of Moses, despite the fact that Moses had also received both the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead". (Esoterically, the Revelation of the Law, the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" and the Vision of the "Son of man" are known as the 'Three Phases of the War of the Sons of Light'. Now, the religious officials of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are typically aware of only the first phase of the War of the Sons of Light; that is, the conflict at the level of the Moral Law rather than the Doctrine of Truth).

The Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" is received at the level of the Fourth Church--the heart chakra, whereas the Vision of the "Son of man" is received in the forehead chakra or the Seventh Church.

Peter is referred to as "the rock". The Teaching of Jesus is based upon a rigid adherence to the Moral Law.

John is the "apostle whom Jesus loved".

The apostle James signifies the Knowledge of Truth.

Peter, John and James were the apostles who were with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

They were told not to 'sleep'.

These chakras are typically 'asleep' in those with a normal human consciousness--which has no respect for the Moral Law and which repudiates the Truth about the "resurrection of the dead" and the Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man".

"He who holds the seven stars in his right hand, he who walks among of the seven golden menorot says these things:

These correspond to the seven chakras of kundalini yoga.

{2:2} "I know your works, and your toil and perseverance, and that you can't tolerate evil men,

Evil in this context signifying those who violate the Moral Law.

and have tested those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and found them false.

This refers to those who either claim to believe the Truth, claim to have Knowledge of the Truth, or claim to be followers of Jesus; but, in reality, have neither belief nor Knowledge of the Truth and are followers of Paul.

{2:3} You have perseverance and have endured for my name's sake, and have not grown weary. {2:4} But I have this against you, that you left your first love.

This signifies the loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth--referred to in the monotheistic tradition as 'the Fall' or the 'banishment from Paradise'--resulting in the consciousness of the normal human personality.

{2:5} Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works;

Knowledge

or else I am coming to you swiftly, and will move your menorah out of its place, unless you repent. {2:6} But this you have, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

A reference to 'sexual magic' of use in some esoteric teachings.

{2:7} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of my God.

This refers to the regaining of the Knowledge of Truth through the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" (consisting of the Revelation of the Memory of Creation and the revelation of the memories of previous lives).

{2:8} "To the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write:

The Second Church corresponds to the first chakra. Anatomically, it is located a few centimeters inferior and posterior to the genital chakra. The emotion associated with the Second Church and the first chakra is desire.

"The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life says these things: {2:9}"I know your works, oppression, and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehudim,

Defined in context here as those with a Knowledge of Truth. This is not anti-Semitic. It is a Doctrinal statement that those with a Knowledge of Truth are the Chosen people. This is in a spiritual sense and does not in any way contravene the Covenant which was an element of the Law of Moses.

and they are not, but are a synagogue of Hasatan. {2:10} Don't be afraid of the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested; and you will have oppression for ten days.

The number ten corresponds to the ten in the book of Daniel and the ten horns of the dragon.

Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life. {2:11} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes won't be harmed by the second death.

The 'first death' refers to the loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth and the descent into duality (see, also, "The Gospel of Truth" in the Nag Hammadi Codices).

The 'second death' refers to the destruction of the normal human consciousness which occurs prior to the receiving of the Vision of the "Son of man".

The 'second death' occurs with the opening of the Sixth Seal in the Revelation of John.

That is, the  Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man" occurs against the background of the annihilation of the normal human consciousness. 

{2:12} "To the angel of the assembly in Pergamum write:

This is the Third Church, which corresponds to the third chakra and to the solar plexus. The emotion associated with the solar plexus is fear (the adrenal glands are under the control of the solar plexus)--the fear of death and/or the fear of the loss of pleasure.

"He who has the sharp two-edged sword says these things:

This is the sword of Truth to oppose the sword of the rider of the Second Seal.

{2:13} "I know your works and where you dwell, where Hasatan's throne is. You hold firmly to my name, and didn't deny my faith in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Hasatan dwells.

Fear is in the solar plexus. The other words are 'code'.

 {2:14} But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Bil`am, who taught Balak to throw a stumbling block before the children of Yisra'el, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.

Fear is the origin of the creation of sexual images--fear being a response to the expected loss of pleasure.

{2:15} So you also have some who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans likewise.

Repetition of the reference to 'sexual magic' in reference to its origin in fear.

{2:16} Repent therefore, or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of my mouth. {2:17} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna,

Hunger is also experienced in the region of the solar plexus. But, esoterically, this refers to the Knowledge of Truth.

and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows but he who receives it.

Symbolic of the knowledge of the self and of the structures of the normal human consciousness.

{2:18} "To the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write:

This is the Fourth Church and the fourth chakra--the heart chakra. Although it is generally assumed that love is experienced in heart chakra, such an emotion is typically a combination of envy and jealousy.

"The Son of God,

The Revelation of the Memory of Creation is received in the heart chakra (cf.   Genesis 2:7) and is the Revelation by which a person receives the Knowledge that he or she was Created by God.

The word "heart" is the code word for the Revelation and Doctrine of the "resurrection of the dead" in Isaiah and in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

who has his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like burnished brass, says these things: {2:19} I know your works, your love,

Signifying heart chakra.

faith, service, patient endurance, and that your last works are more than the first. 

Works of Love--see Kierkegaard.

{2:20}But I have this against you, that you tolerate your woman, Izevel, who calls herself a prophetess.

False prophecies originate in the images created out of lust in the heart.

She teaches and seduces my servants to commit sexual immorality, and to eat things sacrificed to idols. {2:21} I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. {2:22} Behold, I will throw her into a bed, and those who commit adultery with her into great oppression, unless they repent of her works.

See the Gospels concerning the heart being the origin of evil in man.

{2:23} I will kill her children with Death, and all the assemblies will know that I am he who searches the minds and hearts.

This is the annihilation of all images of Truth which occurs through the Revelation of Truth.

I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. {2:24} But to you I say, to the rest who are in Thyatira, as many as don't have this teaching, who don't know what some call 'the deep things of Hasatan,'

Many do not have a deep understanding of the Doctrine of Truth and the way that Doctrine has been perverted by the 'deep things of Satan'--as is the teaching of Paul concerning 'vicarious atonement', for example.

For them, it is sufficient that they focus on the responsibility to love.

to you I say, I am not putting any other burden on you. {2:25} Nevertheless, hold firmly that which you have, until I come.

Those who have no direct Knowledge of Truth should focus, instead, on the responsibility to love and abide by the Moral Law.

{2:26} He who overcomes, and he who keeps my works to the end, to him I will give authority over the nations. {2:27} He will rule them with a rod of iron, shattering them like clay pots;  as I also have received of my Father: {2:28} and I will give him the morning star.

This is, in context, a symbol for the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" which is received in the heart chakra.

{2:29} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.

The word "Spirit" in context refers to the Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man". 

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 3

________________________

{3:1} "And to the angel of the assembly in Sardis write:

This refers to the throat chakra or the Fifth Church and the experience of sorrow and suffering (Sorrow is experienced with a tightening of the throat.)

He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars says these things: "I know your works, that you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.

There is a difference between common sorrow, self-pity, and sorrow over the loss of  the Knowledge of Truth.

{3:2} Wake up, and keep the things that remain, which you were about to throw away, for I have found no works of yours perfected before my God.

The sorrow of the normal human consciousness is sorrow over the loss of pleasure, the loss of images. It does not refer to the loss of Truth or to the sorrow of the loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

{3:3} Remember therefore how you have received and heard.

Truth is received through Revelation, or It is heard from someone who has received Revelation.

Keep it, and repent. If therefore you won't watch, I will come as a thief, and you won't know what hour I will come upon you.

This refers to the annihilation of the images of Truth.

their garments. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. {3:5} He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments,

Note the correspondence to the Fifth Seal of the Revelation of John which talks about the sufferings of the saints. This is a consequence of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th seals and  the manifestation of evil.

and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. {3:6} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.

{3:7} "To the angel of the assembly in Philadelphia write:

This is the sixth or crown chakra and the Sixth Church. The emotion associated with  the crown chakra and Sixth Church is annoyance or indignation.

"He who is holy, he who is true, he who has the key of David,

In three dimensions, the Star of David has ten points. These are the acoustical or phonetic tones which are distributed over the chakras or Churches in a very precise order.

he who opens and no one can shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says these things:

This refers to the emergence of Truth into the normal consciousness.

{3:8} "I know your works (behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one can shut), that you have a little power, and kept my word, and didn't deny my name. {3:9} Behold, I give of the synagogue of Hasatan, of those who say they are Yehudim, and they are not, but  lie.

This is a reference to the Knowledge of Truth.

Behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. {3:10} Because you kept my command to endure,

the suffering mentioned in the message to the Fifth Church

I also will keep you from the hour of testing, which is to come on the whole world, to test those who dwell on the [1>]eretz[<1]. {3:11} I am coming quickly! Hold firmly that which you have, so that no one takes your crown. {3:12} He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will go out from there no more. I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Yerushalayim, which comes down out of heaven from my God,

Esoterically, this is a reference to the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

and my own new name.

Note the correspondence to the message to the Third Church.

{3:13} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. {3:14} "To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write:

The seventh chakra and the Seventh Church--the forehead, the associated emotion of which is rage.

"The Amein, the Faithful and True Witness, the Head of God's creation,

'Code'

says these things: {3:15} "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot.

There are two currents of kundalini--the ida and pingala, the masculine and feminine, the solar and the lunar, the cold and the hot.

The normal human consciousness has no awareness of these.

I wish you were cold or hot. {3:16} So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth. {3:17} Because you say, 'I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;' and don't know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked;

'Rich' with the images of the Truth which have been conveyed on the basis of conditioning, the desire for pleasure and the fear of suffering and death.

{3:18} I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself,

The normal human consciousness has 'suffered', but it has not suffered for the Truth. Note the correspondence to the Fifth Seal and the message to the Fifth Church.

and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. {3:19}

This refers to the "anointing" of the Vision of the "Son of man"--of the seven "eyes".

As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous therefore, and repent. {3:20} Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice

There are many who simply cannot hear the words of Truth because those words do  not resonate in their hearts. Argument with such people is useless, as is clearly mentioned in "The Treatise on the Resurrection" found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt with regards to the Truth about the "resurrection of the dead". Others hear and believe immediately without an argument. It is instantly recognized as being the Truth.

and opens the door, then I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me. {3:21} He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame,

This refers to the overcoming of the 'dragon' which is the foundation of the normal human consciousness.

****

and sat down with my Father on his throne.

****

As stated here in the translation, this is a blasphemy--part of the "voice of the seven thunderclaps" which John was ordered not to write down.

It is just prior to this statement that words can no longer trespass onto the Truth.  And to do so is a violation of the requirements of Truth.

{3:22} He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies."

Inasmuch as Mohammed also received the same Vision as was received  by John, Mohammed insists that there can be no 'association' with the Creator.

This specific passage from the Revelation of John is, therefore, not merely challenged, but contravened by the Revelations in the Koran.

There is a similar difficulty with this phrase as there is with the term "Son of God."

The Truth can be explained in the context of an oral Teaching only for those whose heart for the Truth has been prepared by suffering.

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 4

________________________

{4:1} After these things I looked and saw a door opened in heaven, and the first voice that I heard, like a [1>]shofar[<1]


There is a specific sound associated with the Vision of the "Son of man". It can be described as a trumpet sound, a very brassy horn sound, as the roar of a water fall or a strong wind, as the sound of a jet engine winding up for take off, or even the sound of a buzzing of bees--
very strong.

The seven horns or trumpets in the Revelation of John then refer to the seven emotions or acoustical frequencies associated with the chakras: desire, anxiety, fear, envy (normal love), sorrow, annoyance, and rage. The seven colors then pertain to these emotions: red for desire, orange for anxiety, yellow for fear, green for envy, blue for sorrow, indigo (indignation) for annoyance and violet (violent) for rage.

See also messages to the Sixth and Seventh Churches.

The normal human consciousness does not have the power to resist the experience of the Vision of the "Son of man".

Nevertheless, it often responds violently to those who have received that Knowledge.

speaking with me, was one saying, "Come up here, and I will show you the things which must happen after this."

Pay attention to the time sequence here.

Revelation 12 occurs 
after this.

{4:2} Immediately I was in the Spirit. Behold, there was a throne set in heaven, and one sitting on the throne {4:3} that looked like a jasper stone and a sardius. There was a rainbow around the throne, like an [2>]yahalom[<2]

Emerald green rather than sickly green (the color of the horse of the Fourth Seal) is the color of the Revelation of the resurrection of the dead at the Fourth Church (the heart chakra--see Isaiah 8:16 : "I seal this Revelation in the heart of my disciples." and Isaiah 26:19)

to look at. {4:4} Around the throne were twenty-four thrones

The twelve sons of Isaac--of whom Jesus was a descendant--and the twelve sons of Ishmael--of whom Mohammed was a descendant.

On the thrones were twenty-four Zakenim sitting, dressed in white garments, with crowns of gold on their heads. {4:5} Out of the throne proceed lightnings, sounds, and thunders.  There were seven lamps of fire burning before his throne, which are the seven Spirits of  God.

Pertaining to the Seven Churches.

{4:6} Before the throne was something like a sea of glass, similar to crystal. In the midst of the throne, and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes before and  behind.

Symbols for the observing consciousness.

{4:7} The first creature was like a lion,

strength or power (discipline)--will power pertaining to the First Church or the genital chakra pertaining to the Moral Law.

and the second creature like a calf,

Humility pertaining to the heart chakra--the Church of the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead".

and the third creature had a face like a man,

Reference to the Vision of the "Son of man", as in Daniel.

and the fourth was like a flying eagle.

Not merely intelligence but the manifestation of the Power of God.

{4:8} The four living creatures, each one of them having six wings,

24 wings to parallel the 24 elders

are full of eyes around about and within.

The Law pertains to the observable world. The Revelations received by Jesus pertain to the realm of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth, consisting of both scientific truth and Revealed Truth.

They have no rest day and night, saying, "Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy is  the Lord God, [3>]Shaddai[<3], who was and who is and who is to come!"

{4:9} When the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to him who sits on the throne, to him who lives forever and ever, {4:10} the twenty-four Zakenim fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever, and throw their crowns before the throne, saying, {4:11} "Worthy are you, our Lord and God, the Holy One,

This is emphatically not a statement directed to Jesus, but to the Creator of the universe.

to receive the glory, the honor, and the power, for you created all things, and because of your desire they existed, and were created!"

All of Creation as the manifestation of the Power, the Righteousness and the Intelligence of the Creator.

which are the seven Spirits of God, on [5>]eretz[<5] sent out into all the
[3>]eretz[<3]."

This is a multi-dimensional symbol in terms of the structure of the physical Reality--solid, liquid, gaseous, heat, sound & ultrasound, light, plasma (?); the  structure of the human body--digestive, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, nervous, beast of the sea (unconscious), beast of the earth (normal consciousness); the structure of emotions previously explained in reference to the churches and consciousness.

{5:7} Then he came, and he

Jesus

took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne. {5:8} Now when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four Zakenim fell down  before the Lamb, each one having a harp, and golden bowls full of  incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones.

Note the message to the Fifth Church

{5:9} They sang a new  song, saying,  "You are worthy to take the book, and to open its seals:

Reveal the Knowledge explained therein.

For you were killed, and bought us

Those capable of recognizing the words of Truth.

for God with your blood, Out of every tribe, language, people, and nation, {5:10} And made them kings and [4>]Kohanim[<4] to our God, and they reign on [5>]eretz[<5]." {5:11} I saw, and I heard something like a voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and  the Zakenim; and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands; {5:12} saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who has been killed to receive the power,

to the First Church

 wealth,

to the Second Church

wisdom,

to the Third Church

strength,

to the Fourth Church

honor,

to the Fifth Church

glory,

to the Sixth Church

and blessing!"

to the Seventh Church

{5:13} I heard every created thing which is in heaven, on the [6>]eretz[<6], under the [7>]eretz[<7], on the sea, and everything in them, saying, "To him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb be the blessing, the honor, the glory, and the dominion, forever and ever!

Differentiation occurs in the oral Teaching. Cannot be effectively communicated in writing.

Amein!" {5:14} The four living creatures said, "Amein!" The Zakenim fell down and worshiped.



 

  The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 6

________________________

{6:1} I saw that the Lamb opened one

'Code'.

of the seven seals,

The Seven Seals are a description of the progressive deterioration of consciousness over the Second, Third and Fourth seals which comprise the structure of the normal human consciousness or linear consciousness.

and I heard one

'Code'. The First Seal and the first living creature are referred to as "one" rather than "first". This is "code" for the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth which is beyond duality.

of the four living creatures

the lion

saying, as with a voice of thunder,

reference to the sound of the Vision of the "Son of man"

"Come and see!"

In the Buddhist tradition, this foundation consciousness is referred to as the  "observing consciousness".

{6:2} And behold, a white horse,

A symbol for Revealed Truth, Isaac, the descending triangle on the Star of David and the Teaching of Jesus.

and he who sat on it had a bow.

Ishmael (cf. Genesis 21:20), a black man--a symbol for scientific truth and the ascending triangle on the Star of David.

A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.

{6:3} When he opened the second seal,

This signifies 'the Fall' or loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth; that is, the descent into duality, illusion, and the origin of the linear or normal human consciousness.

I heard the second living creature

The bull, understood in a negative sense as stupid and brutish, responds only to pleasure and pain.

saying, "Come!"

Depth reflexes are often not seen immediately by the observing consciousness.  The spatializing and structuring images and emotions of the normal human consciousness are these kinds of reflexes.

{6:4} Another came forth, a red horse.

(see Genesis 15:25) Esau, desire and blood, the teaching of Paul.

To him who sat on it was given power to take shalom from the [1>]eretz[<1], and that they should kill one another.

'Code' for fear of death.

There was given to him a great sword.

A two-edged sword. Fear, desire, the fundamental duality of the normal human consciousness.

{6:5} When he opened the third seal,

Intellectual structure of normal human consciousness is founded on the duality of emotions represented in the Second Seal.

I heard the third living creature

the animal with the human face signifying human intelligence.

saying, "Come and see!"

Thoughts are more easily perceived by the observing consciousness. They are more removed from immediate reflex than are emotions.

And behold, a black horse,

Opposite to the white horse of Revealed Truth.

and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand.

Comparison and other mechanisms of the normal intellect for understanding   (in politics the 'weighing' of policies and decisions--for example, the 'peace process'.)

{6:6} I heard a voice in the midst

The normal human consciousness has a "sneaking suspicion" that it does not know the Truth. It has no idea of the origin of this voice.

of the four living creatures saying, "A choenix of wheat for a denarius, and three choenix of barley for a denarius!

Reference to the famine of Truth. This is the manner in which the religious officials make their money.

Don't damage the oil

'Code' for the Vision of the "Son of man"

and the wine!"

'Code' for the vengeance of God (see Revelations 14:19-20)

{6:7} When he opened the fourth seal,

The ultimate manifestation of evil in terms of human behaviors originating in the second and third Seals.

I heard the fourth living creature

The eagle (synchronicity with ego?), a bird of prey.

saying, "Come and see!"

This manifestation of evil can be seen even by the normal human consciousness but it's origin can be clearly perceived only by the observing consciousness.

{6:8} And behold, a pale horse,

Or sickly green horse, the color of envy. Typically misunderstood as "love".

and he who sat on it, his name was Death. She'ol followed with him. They were given authority over one fourth of the [2>]eretz[<2],

This is merely the tip of the iceberg. The roots of this evil are in the fundamental structures, images, emotions and thoughts of the normal human consciousness. In other words, the external and observable behaviors which constitute the manifestation of evil in the space-time Reality are merely one fourth.

Fourth also pertains to the Fourth Church or the heart chakra. (see the Gospels)

to kill with the sword,

Pleasure/pain, desire/fear of death

with famine,

The famine of Truth.

with death,

Murder. Genocide.

and by the wild animals.

These refer to the 'beast of the sea' and the 'beast of the earth'.

{6:9}When he broke the Fifth Seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of all the people who had been killed on account of the word of God and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had.

This is a specific reference to the manner in which those who have believed the Teaching of Jesus have been persecuted by the Christians.  The Albigensians, for example, were exterminated for teaching the Truth about the "resurrection of the dead", while Paul and his followers in the Roman church also murdered many of those keeping the original Teaching of Jesus among the "Gnostics" and other "heretics".

{6:10} They cried with a loud voice, saying, "How long, Master, the holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the [4>]eretz[<4]?" {6:11} A long white robe was given to each of them.

This is a present Reality as well.

They were told that they should rest yet for a while, until their fellow servants and their brothers, who would also be killed even as they were, should complete their course. {6:12} I saw when he opened the sixth seal,

The consequence of the prayers of the saints: the annihilation of the normal human consciousness.

and there was a Great Earthquake.

Esoterically, this is a de-structuring of the normal human consciousness.

The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair,

Annihilation of thoughts and images.

and the whole moon became as blood.

The emergence of the rider on the Red Horse--the chaos of fear/desire and psychosis underlying the intellectual mechanisms of the normal human consciousness or linear consciousness. (cf. Jungian psychology)

{6:13} The stars of the sky fell to the [5>]eretz[<5],

Destruction of hopes, dreams, positive images of the future and images of religious truth.

like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind. {6:14} The sky was  removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Continuation of the theme of the annihilation of the normal human consciousness; that is, the Second Death.

{6:15} The kings of the [6>]eretz[<6], the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and free person, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.

There is no human power in the confrontation with the Power of God to destroy the normal human consciousness.

{6:16} They told the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne,

Reference to the Creator.

and from the wrath of the Lamb,

Manifestation of the conflict between the Vision of the Son of man, that is, the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth and the normal human consciousness.

{6:17} for the great day of his wrath

God's Wrath.

has come; and who is able to stand?"

No one.

Not even Jesus or Mohammed or Moses or Daniel or Ezekiel or John.

No one.

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 7

________________________

{7:1} After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the [1>]eretz[<1], holding the four winds

Wind is an air symbol. It pertains to the intellect. With the annihilation of the thoughts which occurs with the opening of the Sixth Seal there occurs a stillness at the level of consciousness and intellect. This is to be compared to Revelations 9:14 where it speaks of four angels chained up at the "great river Euphrates". This is a water symbol referring to 'the unconscious' of structures and images rather than thoughts.

of the [2>]eretz[<2], so that no wind would blow on the [3>]eretz[<3], or on the sea, or on any tree. {7:2} I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise, having the seal of the living God.

This is a reference to the "Vision of the Son of man".

He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the [4>]eretz[<4] and the sea,

The war between the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness occurs at the level of the consciousness, will and intellect; and on both the conscious level and the level of the 'unconscious'.

{7:3} saying, "Don't harm the [5>]eretz[<5], neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants of our God on their foreheads!"

The Seventh Church. A symbol for the Knowledge of Truth.

{7:4} I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand,

In context with the Truth about the "resurrection of the dead", it must be recognized that these 144,000 would live more than only one life, but would not always be born as Jews--'Leaven among wheat' of all of the peoples of the earth.

sealed out of every tribe of the children of Yisra'el: {7:5} Of the tribe of Yehudah were sealed twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Re'uven twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand, {7:6} Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Naftali twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Menasheh

Menasheh was Joseph's son not Israel's son. The tribe of Dan, on the other hand, is removed. "Dan i el" signifies "God Will Judge His people." The annihilation of the normal human consciousness is the Judgement of the normal consciousness. Thus the tribe of Joseph has a double portion.  Menasheh means, "God has made me forget all my suffering and all my father's household". Menasheh was born in Egypt. Egypt is a symbol for the normal human consciousness. (Significance conveyed through oral Teaching--"suffering" has a double meaning specific to context).

twelve thousand, {7:7} Of the tribe of Shim`on twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Yissakhar twelve thousand, {7:8} Of the tribe of Zevulun twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Yosef twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Binyamin were sealed twelve thousand. {7:9} After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. {7:10} They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne,

Manifestation of the Power of God in the physical reality.

and to the Lamb!"

Victory of Truth over falsehood.

{7:11} All the angels were standing around the throne, the Zakenim, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne,

Or "touched the ground with their foreheads" as in the Jerusalem Bible--the Muslim position of prayer.

and worshiped God, {7:12} saying, "Amein! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our God forever and ever! Amein."

The sequence of these words is different than in Revelations  5:12. Words in reference to the Lamb are in ascending sequence pertaining to the Seven Churches. Words of worship to God are in descending sequence--an important difference being "thanksgiving" at the Fourth Church or heart chakra.

{7:13} One of the Zakenim answered, saying to me, "These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?" {7:14} I told him, "My lord, you know." He said to me, "These are those who came out of the great tribulation.

In context, these are those who have suffered the annihilation of the normal human consciousness.

They washed their robes, and made them white

Or "white again"--as in the Jerusalem Bible--referring to the soon-to-be-accomplished regaining of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth with the Vision of the "Son of man" at the Seventh Seal.

in the Lamb's blood.{7:15} Therefore they are before the throne of God, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. {7:16} They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more;

For the Truth.

neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat;

Symbol of the normal human consciousness. ("the sun went black as coarse sackcloth").

{7:17} for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life.

Or waters of Truth.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

This is a Prophecy.

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 8

________________________

{8:1} When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

This is a reference to the Vision of the "Son of man". The "about half an hour" is, in this particular instance, a literal segment of time. But it is also, in English, a play on words.

{8:2} I saw the seven angels who stand before God,

These are the angels of the Seven Churches.

and seven trumpets

A multi-dimensional symbol. Refers first to the emotions experienced at each particular chakra.

were given to them. {8:3} Another angel came and stood over the altar,

"underneath the altar" from Revelations 6:9 refers to the 'unconscious' memories of previous lives.

This "over the altar" refers to both the emergence of these memories of previous lives into conscious awareness and the anatomy of the brain.

having a golden censer. Much incense was given to him, that he should add it to prayers of the saints on the golden altar that stood in front of the throne; {8:4}and so from the angel's hand the smoke of the incense went up in the presence of God and with it the prayers of the saints. {8:5} Then the angel took the censer

Clearly, there is at least a synchronicity between this word "censer" and the fact that the Truth about the Revelation and Doctrine of the "resurrection of the dead" has been censored by the religious and media officials in the United States and Israel for the past 20 years--the archetypal censor of the Truth being the linear or normal human consciousness.

 and filled it with fire from the altar,

Following the synchronicity of the word "censer", it is important to note that this is the agent of judgment upon the earth. In other words, it is through this censor that the judgments are unleashed against this civilization.

But this is also, loosely, a symbol for the master gland--the pituitary and/or pineal gland--and the control exercised over the endocrine system.

and threw it on the [1>]eretz[<1].

Severe pain is experienced by those who undergo this Warfare. These have physiological origins and also originate in the specific memories of previous lives.

There followed thunders, sounds, lightnings, and an earthquake.

'Code' for the experiences surrounding the Vision. But a time-reversal is also involved.

{8:6} The seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The angels are the agents of the Knowledge of Truth.

{8:7} The first sounded,

The first trumpet is the emotion "desire"--sexual and others.

and there followed hail and fire,

See Exodus re: the Seventh Plague

mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the [2>]eretz[<2].

See Exodus re: the First Plague.

In this context the word "blood" is code for the Red Horse or the Second Seal and its association with procreation and war.

One third

The Second, Third and Fourth Seals of the Revelation of John refer to the different aspects of the normal human consciousness which control the totality of most human experience.

of the [3>]eretz[<3] was burnt up,

This is the annihilation of the normal human consciousness.

and one third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

This archetypal sexual desire is results in the annihilation of Truth.

{8:8} The second angel sounded,

The second trumpet emotion is "anxiety" or "angst".

and something like a great burning mountain was thrown into the sea.

Desire moderated by fear and chaos.

One third of the sea became blood,

See Exodus re: the First Plague

{8:9} and one third of the living creatures which were in the sea died.

First the extermination of plant life on the earth or the consciousness. This is now the extermination of the animal life in the sea of the 'unconscious'. Evil is being destroyed at its very roots.

One third of the ships were destroyed.

Ships are creations of man which float on the waters of the 'unconscious--thoughts in the conscious intellect which float on the images of the 'unconscious'. Freud was not completely in error.

{8:10} The third angel sounded,

The third trumpet emotion is "fear" of death.

and a great star fell from the sky,

The image of the normal human consciousness is annihilated or the 'sun turned black as coarse sackcloth'.

burning like a torch, and it fell on one third of the rivers, and on the springs of the waters.

The very existence of this 'unconscious' is being threatened.

{8:11} The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood. Many people died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

Endocrine changes cause the taste in the mouth to be very bitter. Extreme thirst is experienced at this time. There is a symbolic association with wine and blood and the Vengeance of God. Meanwhile, the revelation of the memories of previous lives can bring about the taste of blood in the mouth.

{8:12} The fourth angel sounded,

The fourth trumpet emotion is "envy" or "jealousy" and is active at the Fourth Church or heart chakra. This is the origin of the manifestation of images--the rider on the sickly green horse. The Jewish religious officials envied Jesus because of his Knowledge of the Truth. It is always so.

and one third of the sun was struck, and one third of the moon, and one third of the stars;

Images interfere with the perception of Truth or Light--the 'solar' or intellectual truths being masculine, as well as the 'lunar' or emotional truths being 'feminine'

so that one third of them would be darkened, and the day wouldn't shine for one third of it, and the night in the same way.

Such images result in a fundamental misperception of reality. There is neither a genuine appreciation of beauty nor the capacity to perceive ugliness in its full depth; neither genuine happiness, nor genuine sorrow. Denial and the creation of images protect the normal human consciousness against the experience of Reality.

{8:13} I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven,

A symbol of the "observing consciousness" which can see the direction in which this process is moving: toward the complete annihilation of everything associated with the normal human consciousness.

saying with a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe!

The Long O tone of Revelational phonetics indicates fear of God rather than fear of death.

The three woes refer to the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Seals in their internal/external manifestation; that is, they pertain as well to the specific Prophecies received by Daniel, Ezekiel and Zechariah of the coming "time of trouble".

The Judgement of God upon the structures of the normal human consciousness is annihilating and merciless. See the Koran.

for those who dwell on the [4>]eretz[<4],

In context, this refers to not the physical body anymore but to the manifestation in the physical world; just as the first four Seals of the Revelation of John are all horses, but there is a sharp difference between those Seals and the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Seal.

For example, there are a number of "synchronicities" between the symbols in the next chapter of the Revelation of John--Chapter 9--and the Gulf War against Iraq almost 11 years ago.

because of the other voices of the trumpets of the three angels, who are yet to sound!"

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 9

________________________

{9:1} The fifth angel sounded,

This pertains to the Fifth Church as far as the esoteric interpretation. But this is also at the level of the external manifestation; that is, the manifestation in the space-time Reality.

and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the [1>]eretz[<1].

This is not merely sorrow, but the total annihilation of the image of the 'self' or normal human consciousness. In terms of the space-time Reality, however, this may be manifested as fear rather than sorrow.

A ripple of fear went around the world when Iraq invaded Kuwait.

The consequences upon the Iraqi people--millions of whom have died from malnutrition, diarrheal diseases and pneumonia because of the sanctions--is sorrow, little of which is given press in the West. This was then followed by the extermination of how many thousands of Muslims in Bosnia, while the Neville Chamberlain Fan Club (d.b.a. the United Nations) merely watched.

The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him. {9:2} He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace.

This is both esoteric at the level of consciousness and is also manifested in the space-time Reality.

The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit.

This is also referred to as the 'face of the sun going black as coarse sackcloth'--that is, the annihilation of the normal human consciousness--but this was also manifested in the Gulf War. Video tapes and pictures after the Gulf War from Kuwait City showed the effects of the burning oil wells of Kuwait which had been set ablaze by the Iraqis.

{9:3} Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the [2>]eretz[<2], and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the [3>]eretz[<3] have power.

This is an air symbol of a ground animal--as if a flying scorpion. In Isaiah there is reference to flying serpents or the "dragon". This consists of the welding together of the fear/desire of the "beast of the sea" or "dragon" which underlies the normal human consciousness.

With the destruction of the normal consciousness there is the emergence of the 'unconscious'--the moon turning blood red, the rider on the Red Horse. In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus says "When you see the images which neither die nor become manifest, how much will you have to bear." This is one of the things he was referring to.

{9:4} They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the [4>]eretz[<4], neither any  green thing, neither any tree, but only those people who don't have God's seal on their foreheads.

Suffering is not the element of the "observing consciousness". This suffering pertains to the destruction of the normal human consciousness.

{9:5} They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months.

'Code'.

Five is validating the Fifth Church, the location of sorrow, whereas 'months' is a 'lunar' (lunacy) word referring to the eruption of the Red Horse unconscious and chaos. This may  be--but is not necessarily--a literal space of time between the experience of the Vision and the emergence of the "observing consciousness" as a recognizable entity; but it usually takes longer than this.

Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a person.

This is at the level of psychological suffering but also physical suffering due to the change of consciousness.

{9:6} In those days people will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

The state of consciousness of the individual at this point is extremely precarious--the temptation to suicide deriving from the perception that the very structure of the normal human consciousness is fundamentally suicidal.

{9:7} The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war.

Specifically, the Red Horse, the Black Horse and the Sickly Green Horse.

On their heads were something like golden crowns,

They do not have any Knowledge of Truth, but are generally recognized as such by the unwitting masses of people. Their authority is an expropriated authority.

and their faces were like people's faces.

These are physically human, but inwardly they are beasts.

{9:8} They had hair like women's hair,

There is a perversion of the feminine among those without a Knowledge of Truth; also a perversion of the masculine. The (male) television personalities on the Christian Broadcasting Network, for example, as well as most evangelists I have had the misfortune to observe are characterized by this perversion of the feminine, this attempt to seduce people into 'giving their lives to Jesus'. See, for example, the last few minutes of Jack Van Impe's show when he attempts to convince people to follow Jesus: a clear example of the perversion of the feminine. Then there is the Roman worship of Mary, and the reference to the 'Mother' Church--a symbol picked up later in the Revelation of John as the whore who sits on seven hills: the Roman catholic church.

and their teeth were like those of lions.

An interesting symbol. Think of the most beautiful woman in the world who will bite you with the teeth of a lion.

{9:9} They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron.

A continuation of the feminine theme with the word "breast" but signifying hardness of heart--red clay being the source of iron.

The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war.

This is an air symbol, of a land animal attempting to fly. Esoterically, it refers to the images of fear and desire in the 'unconscious' since this is prior to thought. It is a chaotic 'sound' with no structure in terms of intellect.

{9:10} They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails they have power to harm men for five months.

Continuation of the 'code' of five--sorrow, suffering.

{9:11} They have over them as king the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is  "Avaddon," but in Yevanit, he has the name "Apollyon."

The intellectual equivalent is metaphysical philosophy, such as the teaching of Paul and Maimonides--agents of demons.

{9:12} The first woe is past. Behold, there are still two woes coming after this.

The alliance of all of the nations of the world against Iraq in 1990-1991 was symbolic of the formation of the normal human consciousness--the raising of defense mechanisms against the terrors of the 'unconscious', out of which the 'ego' consciousness is said to develop. (cf. "The Denial of Death" by Becker).

Saddam Hussein has said that the Gulf War was the "Mother of All Battles". Esoterically, he was correct in that the formation of the normal human consciousness is the mother of all battles. But is a necessary battle, just as "the Fall" was necessary.

{9:13} The sixth angel sounded. I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before God, {9:14} saying to the sixth angel who had one [5>]shofar[<5], "Free the four angels who are bound

In the "Jerusalem Bible", the word here is "chained"--a synchronicity with the fact that Richard Cheney (pronounced "chainy") was the Secretary of Defense of the United States at the time of the Gulf War. This synchronicity is later continued in Revelations 20:1-2.

at the great river Perat!"

Esoterically, the "Great River Euphrates" is symbolic of the energy origin of the normal human consciousness.

In terms of its external manifestation, you would need to read the news headlines of late March or early April 1991 to see that the "Coalition Forces" stopped at the Euphrates River in Iraq when the war was ended--signifying the successful formation of the normal human consciousness against the perceived threat to the oil-based modern civilization.

{9:15} The four angels were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year,

The Creator of the universe is in control of time-whether it is 1260 days, or 3 1/2 days. (Capable of being explained, but not in this media.)

so that they might kill one third of mankind.

This is a Prophecy yet to be fulfilled in the physical world. Esoterically, of course, these angels are released for the purpose of destroying the normal human consciousness.

{9:16} The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million.

A synchronicity for reasons not explained here.

I heard the number of them.

This is the Sixth Seal.

Their number is not 200 million but 666.

United Nations resolution #666 was passed in response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. This is the 'ego' consciousness responding to the chaos and terror of the 'unconscious'.

{9:17} Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them, having breastplates of  fiery red,

Iron breastplates signifying hardness of heart, viciousness, lust (desire) and envy of those who have a Knowledge of Truth.

hyacinth blue,

a light sickly blue, signifying self-pity, as compared to the dark blue of the sorrow over the loss of Truth (blue is the color pertaining to the Fifth Church).

This is parallel to the sickly green of envy as compared to the emerald green of genuine love (at the Fourth Church).

and sulfur yellow

This is fear--the color pertaining to the Third Church;

and the heads of lions. Out of their mouths proceed fire,

red for desire--the Second Seal

smoke,

black for the contradiction of Revealed Truth--the Third Seal

and sulfur.

Yellow, the emotion at the Third Church.

{9:18} By these three plagues were one third of mankind killed: by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur, which proceeded out of their mouths.

This is the manifestation of the normal human consciousness in the physical reality.

{9:19} For the power of the horses is in their mouths,

This pertains to false teaching--the teaching of Paul and Mainonides and the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious officials.

and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they harm.

The origin of the metaphysical teachings of the religious officials is deep within the structure of the normal human consciousness. Any attempts to bring this structure to light faces censorship by the religious establishment and their shills and sycophants in the religious and secular media.

{9:20} The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues,

Such Knowledge comes to few. Most people have no idea whatsoever of the fundamental structure of the normal human consciousness or the origin of evil.

didn't repent of the works of their hands, that they wouldn't worship demons,

The Christians worship an image of Jesus. Images--even images of someone who has Knowledge of Truth--are demons. Even a student of a teacher who has a Knowledge of Truth must understand that Truth is much more important than even the teacher--the individual's relationship to God taking complete precedence over the relationship with the teacher. And any teacher with the Knowledge of Truth must understand this as well.

and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk.

These are all the manifestations of projected images--a violation of the First Commandment against idolatry.

{9:21} They didn't repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their sexual immorality, nor of their thefts.

What is the origin of the violation of the Moral Law?

It is to be found in the very structures of the normal human consciousness.

 

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 10

________________________

{10:1} I saw a mighty angel coming down out of the sky,

A symbol for the Vision of the "Son of man"

clothed with a cloud.

See Daniel 7:13

A rainbow was on his head.

The seven colors pertaining to the seven churches.

His face was like the sun,

See Isaiah 30:26

and his feet like pillars of fire.

See Daniel 10:6

{10:2} He had in his hand a little open book.

The Book of Truth--see Daniel 10:20

He set his right foot

The right foot is a symbol for the intellect.

on the sea,

The sea is a symbol for the 'unconscious'.

and his left foot

The left foot is a symbol for the emotions.

on the land.

The land is a symbol for the normal consciousness and the space-time Reality.

In other words, this angel has control over both the "beast of the earth"--the normal human consciousness--and the "beast of the sea"--the 'unconscious'.

But this is also a symbol for the 'balancing' between scientific truth and Revealed Truth.

{10:3} He cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars.

The Lion of the tribe of Judah and the "first living creature" of the Revelation of John.

When he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.

The terminal aspect of the Vision of the "Son of man", at which certain Truths are conveyed which it would be a blasphemy to put into writing and even a blasphemy to speak.

{10:4} When the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from the sky saying, "Seal up the things which the seven thunders said, and don't write them."

Much of this is an element of an oral Teaching, as well as an explanation of the limitations of language to convey the relationship between the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth and.

{10:5} The angel who I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to the sky, {10:6} and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it,

Revealed Truth

the [1>]eretz[<1] and the things that are in it,

Those things which are observable to the senses and the normal human consciousness and are described from within the frame of reference of the scientific method.

and the sea and the things that are in it,

As Jesus says in the "Gospel of Thomas": "...when you see the images which exist before you, but which neither die nor become manifest"--these are the archetypes of the 'unconscious'.

that there will no longer be delay,

Esoterically this refers to the cessation of time. The Vision of the "Son of man" occurs at the "end of time" or the "time of the End" (cf. Daniel 11:40) And, as Freud so cogently observed, time is a construct of the 'ego'.

{10:7} but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished,

With the Revelation of the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" there is no longer doubt or speculation as to the Truth, since Truth is no longer disperceived and disinterpreted through the veil of images based on fear and desire originating in the normal human consciousness.

as he declared to his servants, the prophets.

Others who have, similarly, received this Vision--like Moses, Jesus and Mohammed. And those who are capable of recognizing the Words of Truth.

{10:8} The voice which I heard from heaven, again speaking with me, said, "Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land." {10:9} I went to the angel, telling him

Not really.

Well, sort of.

to give me the little book. He said to me, "Take it, and eat it up. It will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey."

For those who have an appreciation of Truth, hearing the Words of Truth are initially comforting. This is preparation for an even deeper and more protracted conflict with evil at the level of the structures of consciousness, images and thought.

The Vision of the "Son of man" is the presentation of Truth, but it is also the initiation of the War of the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness within the individual personality.

{10:10} I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth.

Truth is sweet.

When I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.

The conflict with first, the normal human consciousness, is painful.

{10:11} They

rather, "Then he

told me, "You must prophesy again over many peoples, nations, languages, and kings."

Those who receive the Truth have the responsibility to convey that Truth to others despite the consequences. These are referred to in the Message to the Fifth Church and the Fifth Seal. The normal human consciousness does not appreciate being informed of the Truth and typically responds violently. This was the response of the Sadducees and the Pharisees and Paul to the Teaching of Jesus; and this was the response of the Roman church to the Teaching of the Albigensians.

The Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious officials I have contacted have responded similarly to the Knowledge I have conveyed to them. So have the media officials.

In this context, the prophets have also received Prophecies of the manifestation of Truth in the physical world.

These are similarly rejected by those who have no appreciation for the Doctrinal Truths Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead"--hence the censorship and suppression of both Revelation and Prophecy by the official religious establishment and the media...

The consequences of which are presently being played out in the conflict over Jerusalem.

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 11

________________________

{11:1} A reed like a rod was given to me. Someone said, "Rise, and measure God's temple,

This reed is for the measurement of distance and the establishing of boundaries. Here it refers to the Moral Law and the First Phase of the War of the Sons of Light--the War between Good and Evil.

and the altar,

This refers to the establishing of 'distance' between the observing consciousness/ consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth, and the elements of consciousness of the normal human personality. This pertains to the Second and Third Phases of the War of the Sons of Light at the level of the heart (the chakra of the "resurrection of the dead" and the feminine aspect of Truth) and the forehead (the chakra for the Vision of the "Son of man" and the masculine aspect of Truth). (This is referred to as the "Vision of Knowledge" in the "Thanksgiving Hymns" of the Dead Sea Scrolls--1QH--the "Vision of Wisdom" in 1 Enoch, and the "Night Journey" of the prophet Mohammed in the Koran.)

and those who worship in it.

The ability to perceive the structure of the normal human consciousness enables a person to recognize who has a desire for Truth.

{11:2} Leave out the court which is outside of the temple,

Those who violate the Moral Law and who adhere to the images of Truth created by the normal human consciousness and originating in the desire for pleasure and the fear of death.

and don't measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles.

Contrariwise, Jews are herein defined as those who abide by the Moral Law, and have a Knowledge of, or a belief in Revealed Truth.

They will tread the holy city under foot for forty-two months.

42=7 X 6

42 also equals 6+6+6 or 18 (the number of the beast) added to   6+6+6+6 or 24 (the number of the "elders" and the wings of the "living creatures") (Revelations 4:4-8)

The number 42 thus indicates the hopeless mixing of the Truth with falsehood, Morality and immorality, the observing consciousness/consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth with the normal human consciousness.

The word "months" is a 'lunar' symbol indicating the ascendancy of the energy of the 'unconscious'--from which the term "lunacy" originates.

{11:3} I will give power to my two witnesses,

Has multiple meanings.

Refers, first, to Moses and "the Lamb" (Revelations 15)--Moses as the representative of the Moral Law, "the Lamb" as the representative of Doctrinal Truth.

May also refer to Isaac and Ishmael as representatives of Revealed Truth and scientific truth.

May also refer to Jesus and Mohammed--the confirmation of the Covenant with both the Jews and the Arabs.

In the Eastern tradition known as kundalini, these "two witnesses" can be understood as the "ida" and "pingala"--the two currents winding like serpents around the central current (the "sushumna") and symbolized in the caduceus, the symbol for the medical profession.

This was also symbolized on Calvary--"the place of the skull"--where Jesus was crucified between 'two thieves'.

and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred sixty days,

The same length of time as the 42 months, only signifying the ascendancy of the 'solar' energy of Revealed Truth.

clothed in sackcloth."

These witnesses have experienced, first, the annihilation of the normal human consciousness prior to the receiving of the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" and the Vision of the "Son of man".

{11:4}These are the two olive trees and the two menorot, standing before the Lord of the [1>]eretz[<1].

See Zechariah 4:1-14, which, in its esoteric understanding, would probably be best appreciated by those of the kundalini tradition.

{11:5} If anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone desires to harm them, he must be killed in this way.

This refers to a conflict at the level of consciousness. Not possible to explain this effectively in anything other than an oral Teaching.

{11:6} These have the power to shut up the sky, that it may not rain during the days of their prophecy. They have power over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to strike the [2>]eretz[<2] with every plague, as often as they desire.

These angels are referred to in Revelations 8:3 (as being in charge of the judgment of the normal human consciousness; see Exodus re: Moses and the plagues upon Egypt) and in Revelations 10:1 (as being the "Lion of the tribe of Judah" and "the Lamb", signifying Doctrinal Truth).

{11:7} When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them.

This is the relationship between the observing consciousness and the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

{11:8} Their dead bodies will be in the street of the great city,

Referred to in Revelations 14 & 16 as a symbol for the normal human consciousness --with no genuine appreciation of the Moral Law and no appreciation for either the illusions of the normal human consciousness or Revealed Truth.

which spiritually is called Sedom and Mitzrayim, where also their Lord was crucified.

Egypt, as previously stated, is symbolic of the normal human consciousness.

{11:9} From among the peoples, tribes, languages, and nations people will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days,

This is a literal segment of time. It cannot be explained effectively in this medium.

and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. {11:10} Those who dwell on the [3>]eretz[<3] rejoice over them, and they will be glad. They will give gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the [4>]eretz[<4].

The state of the normal human consciousness is the ascendancy of pleasure and the avoidance of displeasure over every Moral value or value of either scientific or Revealed Truth.

{11:11} After the three and a half days,

This is a literal segment of time.

the breath of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet. Great fear fell on those who saw them.

The terror of the normal human consciousness as the Vision of the "Son of man" emerges against the background.

{11:12} I heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here!"

Descriptive of the Vision. Pertains to the Seventh Church.

They went up into heaven in the cloud,

'Code' for the Vision.

and their enemies saw them.

"Those who pierced him"--cf. Revelations 1:7-all of the sensations, perceptions, images, emotions and thought characteristic of the normal human consciousness.

{11:13} In that day there was a great earthquake,

'Code' for the Vision.

and a tenth of the city fell.

There are ten principal phonetic tones distributed across the Seven Churches or chakras.

These ten tones or horns are mentioned in Daniel 7:7 and Revelations 12:4 and 13:1.

The tenth tone sounds at the Seventh Church with the experience of the Vision of the "Son of man". (This is the origin of the notes I have written to the Internet over the past few years concerning Revelational phonetics.)

Seven

'Code' for the Seventh Church

thousand

signifying perfection

people were killed in the earthquake,

a continuation of the theme of Revelations 1:17 and Daniel 10:9

(The fact that approximately 7,000 people were killed in the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001 is an indication of the fractal nature of this Prophecy in the Revelation of John.)

and the rest were terrified, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

The state of the human consciousness after receiving the Vision.

(Clearly, not the state of consciousness of the people in the United States after this terrorist attack.)

{11:14} The second woe is past.

There has been a time-reversal. The second woe is future.

The Third Phase of the War of the Sons of Light--the Vision of the "Son of man"-- precedes, by means of a time-reversal, the Second Phase of the War of the Sons of Light--the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead", consisting of the Revelation of the Memory of Creation and the revelation of the memories of previous lives.

Behold, the third woe comes quickly.

Correct.

Before you know it.

{11:15} The seventh angel sounded, and great voices in heaven followed, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord,

The Manifestation of the Power and Righteousness of God over His creation--the external manifestation of the tenth tone.

and of his Messiah.

This word can be used accurately only in relation to the Creator--see Isaiah 44 & Jeremiah.

He

The Creator.

will reign forever and ever!" {11:16} The twenty-four Zakenim, who sit on their thrones before God's throne, fell on their faces and worshiped God,

This is the Muslim position for praying.

{11:17} saying: "We give you thanks, Lord God, [5>]Shaddai[<5], the one who is and who was; because you have taken your great power, and reigned. {11:18} The nations were angry,

Said nations do not know what anger is.

and your wrath came, as did the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your bondservants the prophets, their reward, as well as to the holy ones, and those who fear your name, to the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the [6>]eretz[<6]."

The media officials are 'destroying the earth' by their relentless and blood-thirsty censorship and suppression of the Truth of the "resurrection of the dead"--the Truth Revealed to Moses, the prophets, Jesus and Mohammed.

The political officials are 'destroying the earth' by their ignorance, trivialization, and wholesale disregard of both the Moral Law and Revealed Truth.

And the religious officials are 'destroying the earth' by their determined and relentless perversion of Truth out of greed, arrogance, and the lust for power..

As stated in the Koran, however, "Allah Observes what you do."

{11:19} God's temple that is in heaven was opened, and the ark of the Lord's covenant was seen in his temple. Lightnings, sounds, thunders, an earthquake, and great hail followed.

The Covenant between God and the children of Israel is validated through the Fulfillment of Prophecy.

 

 

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 12

________________________

{12:1} A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun,

Esoterically, this is a symbol for the consciousness of the normal human personality after it has received both the Vision of "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead".

Exoterically, it refers to Israel.

and the moon under her feet,

Esoterically, this demonstrates the control of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth over the 'unconscious'.

and on her head a crown of twelve stars. {12:2}

Validating that this is Israel and not the Roman church, for example. Or Mary.

She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.

This is a symbol for the emergence of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth and the emergence of the War of the Sons of Light". (See the writings of Jungian and archetypal psychology.)

{12:3} Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon,

This is the spatializing/formation energy--the structuring energy--of the normal human consciousness at its very origin.

having seven heads

It has control over the Seven Churches or the seven chakras of the human body.

and ten horns,

These are the ten phonetic tones. They are also mentioned in the book of Daniel and in the writings of the Kabbalist mystics. The Ten Sephirot are not unrelated to these.

and on his heads seven crowns.

They 'seemed' like crowns. (Revelations 9:7) This beast obviously has no Knowledge of the Truth.

{12:4} His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky,

Censorship and suppression of Revealed Truth at the level of consciousness.

This is the beginning of the realization that the dragon refers to the national and international print, broadcast, and Internet media on this planet.

and threw them to the [1>]eretz[<1].

The trivialization, ignorance, rejection, repudiation and contradiction of Revealed Truth by the media, the politicians and the religious establishment.

The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.

The energy, images, emotions, thoughts and behaviors of the normal human consciousness are antithetical to the Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead".

By its suppression of the Truth concerning the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead", the media--including the Israeli media such as the "Jerusalem Post"--is determined to destroy Israel. That is, the primary function of the media is to preserve the economic interests of the politicians and the religious officials rather than to publicize either Revealed Truth or scientific truth.

{12:5} She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron.

Esoterically, this refers to the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth 'ruling' the normal human consciousness.

Exoterically, this refers to the fulfillment of the Prophecies of the coming "time of trouble".

Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne.

Signifying the Victory of Truth over falsehood, Reality over illusion at the level of consciousness.

{12:6} The woman fled into the wilderness,

This conflict occurs in isolation.

where she has a place prepared by God, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days.

'Code' for the Revelation of the Knowledge of Truth. Consciousness is nourished through the Words of Truth.

{12:7} There was war in the sky.

More accurately, heaven.

Mikha'el and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war.

This is the War in heaven experienced by every person who has received the Vision of the "Son of man"--from Moses, to Isaiah, to Ezekiel, Daniel, Jesus, John and Mohammed.

This brings about the initiation of the War of the Sons of Light at the level of consciousness, images, emotions and thoughts within the human personality--perhaps most accurately described in the "Thanksgiving Hymns" of the Dead Sea Scrolls, 1QH (most probably written by Jesus--something not widely considered because of the oh-so-effective censorship by the media of my research on the Dead Sea Scrolls.)

Moses, for example, flees from Egypt (which is a symbol of the normal human consciousness) to a well in the land of Midian (signifying the waters of Truth), where he met a priest of Midian who had seven daughters (The Pleiades or "Seven Sisters" is a constellation of Stars) (Exodus 2:16). (Esoterically, this pertains to the Seven Churches or chakras, and is continued in Isaiah 4:11). After this he experiences the "burning bush" which is also a symbol for the Vision of the "Son of man". (Exodus 3:2; and the Tree of Life--Genesis 3:24)

Many years ago there was a song by "America", as I recall, in which the words were:

'You know I've been to the desert on a horse with no name

It felt good to get out of the rain.

In the desert you can remember your name

Cause there ain't no one there for to give you no pain.'

(from memory)

{12:8} They didn't prevail, neither was a place found for him any more in heaven.

The structures of the normal human consciousness are utterly powerless against the manifestation of the Truth or Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead".

{12:9}The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the devil and Hasatan, the deceiver of the whole world.

These are the fundamental illusions of the normal human consciousness in the conflict with Revealed Truth and Reality. Buddhists have an appreciation of the illusory nature of the normal human consciousness which is typically more advanced than those of the monotheistic religions.

He was thrown down to the [2>]eretz[<2], and his angels were thrown down with him.

Also, "the stars of the sky fell on to the earth" (cf. Revelations 6:13) signifying the destruction of the thoughts of the normal human consciousness.

{12:10} I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now is come the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah;

See Isaiah 44 & 46 and Jeremiah.

Manifestation of the Righteousness of God at the level of consciousness.

for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.

A fundamental element of the normal human consciousness is the projection of images of evil  upon those who have a Knowledge of Truth. This is how the Pharisees and Sadducees perceived Jesus. This is the origin of a statement in the Koran concerning the crucifixion of Jesus.

{12:11} They overcame him because of the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death. {12:12} Therefore rejoice, heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the [3>]eretz[<3]

This refers, in context, to the human body. It also refers to the Prophecies of the coming "time of trouble".

and to the sea, because the devil has gone down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time."

Comical.

The dragon's time at this point is over.

The Vision of the "Son of man" marks the end of time brought about through a time reversal.

The battle has been lost.

The dragon is 'slow'--just does not yet understand this.

(And, by the way, there is a very close correspondence of these symbols with regards to the events following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001)

Esoterically, this is an indication of the initiation of the War between the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness--the consequences of which upon the human body and consciousness are not 'pretty'.

{12:13} When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the [4>]eretz[<4], he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.

Previously described in the commentaries on the Seven Trumpets.

{12:14} Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

This refers to the intellectual element of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

{12:15} The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.

These are images and illusions originating in the spatializing/structuring elements of the normal human consciousness, and which result in emotions and thoughts arranged to preserve and protect the illusions of the normal human consciousness.

{12:16} The [5>]eretz[<5] helped the woman, and the [6>]eretz[<6] opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.

Reality swallows up illusion. Truth swallows up falsehood.

As Jesus says in the Gospel of Thomas: "...when you see your images which neither die nor become manifest (these things are not manifested in physical Reality) how much will you have to bear?"

{12:17} The dragon grew angry

Hahahahahahahahaha.

The dragon has no knowledge or understanding of what anger is.

The Vengeance of God--------that is anger.

with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's [7>]mitzvot[<7]

The 'anger' of the dragon is against those who obey the Moral Law 

and hold Yeshua's testimony.

and those who have a Knowledge of or a belief in the Truth.

In terms of fractal Prophecies, there is, esoterically and exoterically, a correspondence between the 12 chapter of the Revelation of John and the 12 chapter of the book of Daniel.

Daniel 11 describes the conflict between a 'king of the south'-or Egypt--referring to the normal human consciousness, and the 'king of the north', referring to what Freud would probably term the 'unconscious'. (The Revelation of John extends this symbolism by including a third entity--'the dragon'.)

This is a fractal Prophecy which can be applied both esoterically and exoterically--both at the micro and the macro level.

Daniel 11:45, for example ("He will pitch the tents of his royal headquarters between the sea and the Mountains of the Holy Splendor. Yet he will come to his end--there will be no help for him.") is a description of how the normal human consciousness exists between the "sea" (Mediterranean) of the 'unconscious' and the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth or the Vision of the "Son of man" (the "Mountains of the Holy Splendor" or Jerusalem.) (Exoterically, this is at least a synchronicity--see Jung--with Arafat's setting up of his headquarters in Gaza in June or July of 1994, shortly after which I first began writing to the Internet about my research on the Dead Sea Scrolls.)

This is then followed by Daniel 12:1 ("And at that time shall Michael stand up...") signifying, esoterically, the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth which emerges out of the annihilation of the normal human consciousness.

Exoterically, this refers to the Prophecies of the coming "time of trouble" and is referred to obliquely in Sura 2:98 of the Koran.

 

 

 

The Revelation of Yochanan

 Chapter 13

________________________

(13:1) Then I stood on the sand of the sea.

A fundamental characteristic of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth is its ability to perceive the origin and structure of the normal human personality or consciousness itself at the depths of the 'unconscious'. This is a perception--rather than a concept, thought, or theory; thus, the use of such picture language to describe it.

I saw a beast coming up out of the sea

A symbol for the 'unconscious'. As a general symbol, this refers to the political establishment which deals primarily in fear and desire. This symbol is not unrelated to the metaphor used by Descartes in the Second Meditation to describe his consciousness.

(In terms of fractal Prophecies, this is a symbol for the political establishment.)

and on his heads, blasphemous names.

The origin of the normal human consciousness is in a turning away from the Will of God, and toward the formation of an individual will. The manifestation of this 'will' is not only the violation of the Moral Law through the pursuit of pleasure; but, also, the repudiation of the Truth concerning the "resurrection of the dead" and the Knowledge Revealed through the Vision of the "Son of man".

(13:2) The beast which I saw was like a leopard,

A leopard cannot change its spots.

This turning away from God is intrinsically and irredeemably evil.

It cannot be 'ignored', 'reformed', 'changed' or 'modified'.

and his feet were like those of a bear,

Stupid.

and his mouth like the mouth of a lion.

He 'thinks' he is angry.

The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. (13:3) One of his heads

The elements of the normal human personality are symbolized in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Seals of the Revelation of John. Each of these can be referred to as a 'head of the beast'.

looked like it had been wounded fatally.

Man was Created with a consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

Those who have received the Revelation of the Memory of Creation (cf. Genesis 2:7, Isaiah and the Koran) receive, thereby, a Memory of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth. In other words, they specifically remember having been Created by God.

This is not a myth or a speculation or a theory.

It is an actual experience.

The origin of the normal human consciousness, on the other hand, is not accompanied by conscious awareness, but consists of the loss of the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth through a reflex-spatialization based upon fear/desire.

(Exoterically, there was a fractal fulfillment of this Prophecy in 1991 in that Mikail Gorbachev, the leader of Russia at the time, had a birth mark on his head reminiscent of a fatal wound.)

His fatal wound was healed,

The Revelation of the Memory of Creation is a fatal wound to the normal human consciousness. That is, the normal human consciousness has a fundamental misperception of reality originating in images created out of fear and desire.

A fatal wound cannot be healed. This beast is dead and yet has power.

and the whole eretz marveled at the beast.

It is generally recognized that the normal human consciousness is, for all practical purposes, God-on-earth.

Because the normal human consciousness has no specific Memory of having been Created by God, it cannot help but conclude that it has existed forever and will continue to exist forever.

The fundamental reflex of the normal human consciousness is the assumption that it is God. (Although 'religious' persons do not, of course, permit such an awareness to enter into their consciousness; the fundamental structure of consciousness does not, for that reason, change.)

(13:4) They worshiped the dragon,

The spatialized normal human consciousness--and the pursuit of pleasure/avoidance of pain--is assumed to be the determiner of ultimate value. Human intelligence, for example, is considered to be perfectly equivalent to Divine Revelation. (And this is the origin of theology and religion in opposition to Revealed Truth.)

because he gave his authority to the beast,

The 'dragon' is the structure of annihilation.

The 'beast' is the manifestation of this chaos and annihilation at the level of image and emotion.

and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

(In terms of fractal Prophecies, the "dragon" refers, also, to the international print, broadcast and Internet media. Clearly, it is simply not possible to wage war against an entity which is in complete control of the dissemination of information to the masses of people.)

The fundamental duality of the normal human consciousness assumes a two-value system: that which preserves the normal human consciousness (an ordering principle) and that which threatens the normal human consciousness (a principle of fundamental chaos and disorder). The normal human consciousness cannot imagine or conceive of an ordering principle greater than the mere preservation of the normal human consciousness itself.

(13:5) A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months

a 'lunar' symbol, echoing Revelations 11:2

was given to him. (13:6) He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God,

The fundamental assumption of the normal human consciousness is that it is God.

to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven. (13:7) It was given to him to make war with the holy ones, and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him. (13:8) All who dwell on the eretz will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed.

Those who recognize the Words of Truth also recognize that the normal human consciousness is not the ultimate source of Moral value.

(13:9) If anyone has an ear, let him hear: (13:10) "Captivity for those who are destined for captivity; the sword for those who are to die by the sword." Here is the endurance and the faith of the holy ones. (13:11) I saw another beast coming up out of the eretz.

This is a symbol for the normal human consciousness (what Freud would refer to as the 'ego'). And, in terms of fractal Prophecies it also refers to the religious establishment.

This is also referred to in Sura 27:82 of the Koran.

Christian theologians are typically unaware of this.

He had two horns

This refers to the dualistic nature of the normal human consciousness--pleasure/pain, fear/desire.

like a lamb,

Signifies the falsification of the Teaching of Jesus or "the Lamb"; that is, specifically Christianity. But this symbol can also be generalized to the Jewish religious officials who have contradicted and disinterpreted the Torah and the Prophets, as well as the Muslim religious officials who have contradicted and disinterpreted the Koran.

and he spoke like a dragon.

The Holocaust was a consequence of the distortion of the Teaching of Jesus.

The coming conflict in the Middle East will be a consequence of the distortion of the Revelations in the Torah, the Prophets, the Gospels and the Koran.

(13:12) He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the eretz and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.

Despite its self-righteous and indignant protestations to the contrary, the fundamental value of the religious establishment is in its moral 'validation' of the political establishment.

(13:13) He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the eretz in the sight of people.

Scientific truth is the realm of the normal human consciousness.

Also refers to distracting, or blinding people to the Truth.

(13:14) He deceives my own people who dwell on the eretz because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the eretz, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived. (13:15) It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn't worship the image of the beast to be killed.

All of this pertains to images of God and images of religious Truth which are created in fundamental agreement with the pleasure/pain principle of the normal human consciousness.

(13:16) He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; (13:17) and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Truth cannot be sold; only falsehood.

This is the fundamental rule for the preservation of the religious establishment.

(13:18) Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.

The number of the normal human consciousness.

His number is six hundred sixty-six.

This is the number of one of the U.N. Security Council resolutions passed in response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.

In general, the alignment of the nations against Iraq in 1990-1991 was a symbol for the formation of the normal human consciousness ("beast of the earth") in opposition to the 'unconscious' ("beast of the sea").

A letter describing the Gulf War as the "First Battle of the End"-- pointing out multiple synchronicities and symbolic correspondences to the Revelation of John and the Gulf War--was written to the rabbis in the United States in late March, 1991, as I recall.

Inasmuch as the normal human consciousness is specifically structured in opposition to the Will of God, the Moral Law, and Revealed Truth, however, the alignment of all of the nations against Israel (cf. Zechariah and Ezekiel) is a further manifestation of this fractal Prophecy. (This is known as the "Second Battle of the End", which is symbolic of the conflict between the linear consciousness and Revealed Truth, or the conflict between the normal human consciousness and the "observing consciousness".)

Current events in the Middle East are progressing--in a time-accelerated manner since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001--according to these same fractal Prophecies. It would serve no useful purpose to convey the specific details of these Prophecies in this medium at this particular time.

What is important to understand is that the events in the space-time Reality are controlled by the Creator for the purpose of Revealing the Truth.

This is code for two specific Revelations: the Revelation of the 'resurrection of the dead', received at the Fourth Church or heart chakra, and the Vision of the "Son of man". Certain specific aspects of both of these Revelations pertain, each in their own way, to the forehead. (This is most effectively conveyed through an oral Teaching.)

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 16

________________________

{16:1} I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the [1>]eretz[<1]!"

This refers to the fulfillment of the Prophecies of the coming "time of trouble". (See Daniel 12:1, Ezekiel and Zechariah)

The Revelation of John was never intended to be a book of specific Prophecies of the coming "time of trouble".

It is mostly a description of the elements of human consciousness and the effects of the Revelation of Truth.

It is primarily a book of Doctrinal Truth, as opposed to a description of events in the space-time Reality.

Except for multiple synchronicities in terms of symbols from December, 1974 and during the Gulf War.

There are others.

{16:2} The first went, and poured out his bowl into the [2>]eretz[<2], and it became a harmful and evil sore on the people who had the mark of the beast, and who worshiped his image. {16:3} The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man. Every living thing in the sea died. {16:4} The third poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. {16:5} I heard the angel of the waters saying, "You are righteous, who are and who were, you Holy One, because you have judged these things. {16:6} For they poured out the blood of the holy ones and the prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve this." {16:7} I heard the altar saying, "Yes, Lord God, [3>]Shaddai[<3], true and righteous are your judgments." {16:8} The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. {16:9} People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn't repent and give him glory. {16:10} The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was darkened. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain, {16:11} and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn't repent of their works. {16:12} The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Perat. Its water was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the kings that come from the sunrise.

The "kings of the East" has at least a double meaning.

In terms of Doctrine, it refers to the Doctrine of 'Rebirth' in the Eastern religious traditions; whereas, in terms of consciousness, it is a symbol for the revelation of the memories of previous lives.

The 'drying up of the Great River Euphrates' refers to the destruction of the energy function of the normal human consciousness.

All of these passages are descriptive of the biological and psychological effects of the receiving of the Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" and the eruption of the War of the Sons of Light within the individual consciousness.

Speculation concerning the manifestation of these symbols in the space-time Reality is not particularly useful.

 {16:13} I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon,

Both the energy function of the normal human personality which exists in the 'unconscious' or "beast of the sea" and the international media.

and out of the mouth of the beast,

The normal human consciousness; and, in it's external manifestation, the political establishment and the images it creates (for example, the "peace process" and the  'war against terrorism').

and out of the mouth of the false prophet,

In general, the religious establishment. But, in this specific context, the Christian religious establishment's arrogant and witless attempts to predict in excruciating detail the events of the coming "time of trouble". (Perhaps billions of dollars, for example, have been made in such interpretations of the Revelation of John.)

three unclean spirits, something like frogs; {16:14} for they are spirits of demons, performing signs;

The dragon-media, the beast-of-the-sea politicians and the beast-of-the-earth religious officials appear to be in complete control of the events in the space-time Reality.

And, it is the censorship of the Truth by the media, the disregard of the Truth by the political establishment, and the contradiction and disinterpretation of the Truth by the religious establishment which is pushing the Middle East towards the "time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation".

which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited [4>]eretz[<4], to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, [5>]Shaddai[<5]. {16:15} "Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn't walk naked, and they see his shame." {16:16} He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.{16:17} The seventh poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done!" {16:18} There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men on the [6>]eretz[<6], so great an earthquake, so mighty.

'Code' for the Vision. (See the Seventh Seal and the Seventh Trumpet.)

Also a Prophecy with regards to the space-time Reality.

{16:19} The great city was divided into three parts,

With the Vision of the "Son of man", the normal human consciousness is fractured into it's three elements: the Second Seal, the Third Seal and the Fourth Seal--the dragon, the beast of the sea and the beast of the earth.

and the cities of the nations fell. Bavel the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. {16:20} Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. {16:21} Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.

To John it would have been a wonder that the Teaching of Jesus could have been so perverted as to result in such a monster.

{18:8} Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire;

Selling interpretations of Revealed Truth for billions of dollars...

All based upon the desire for intellectual and emotional pleasure, and the fear of suffering.

For in one hour is she made desolate.

Clearly, there are numerous correspondences between these passages and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and their consequences--indicating the fractal nature of the Prophecies in the Revelation of John.

 

{18:20} Rejoice over her, O heaven, you holy ones, apostles, and prophets; for God has judged your judgment on her."

"These words...

(Including an explanation of the manner in which the religious officials have contradicted, disinterpreted, and censored Revealed Truth)

{18:21} A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence will Bavel, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all. {18:22} The voice of harpists, minstrels, flute players, and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatever craft, will be found any more at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you. {18:23} The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you.

Surely, the 'secular' normal human personality is not fundamentally different than the 'religious' normal human personality.

Neither is the secular 'justification' for genocide fundamentally different than the religious 'justification' for genocide.

{20:4} I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Yeshua, and for the word of God, and such as didn't worship the beast nor his image, and didn't receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand.

Reference to the observing consciousness or the consciousness of the Knowledge of Truth.

They lived, and reigned with Messiah for the thousand years. {20:5} The rest of the dead didn't live until the thousand years were finished.

The Revelation of the "resurrection of the dead" generally occurs after the Vision of the "Son of man"--although it is the Second rather than the Third Phase of the War of the Sons of Light.

This occurs by means of a time-reversal, as explained in my unpublished manuscript "The Scroll of the War of the Sons of Light and the Revelational Basis of the Doctrine of the 'Messiah".

This is the first resurrection.

As stated in the "Treatise on the Resurrection" found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt, there is a "spiritual", "psychic" and "physical" resurrection. The physical resurrection is the process of rebirth, the psychic resurrection is the revelation of the memories of previous lives, and the spiritual resurrection is the Revelation of the consciousness of man at the moment of Creation.

{20:6} Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power,

The "second death" is the annihilation of the structure, images, emotions and thoughts of the normal human consciousness--all of which originate in the 'dragon'.

but they will be [2>]Kohanim[<2] of God and of Messiah, and will reign with him one thousand years. {20:7} And after the thousand years, Hasatan will be released from his prison, {20:8} and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the [3>]eretz[<3], Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

{20:9} They went up over the breadth of the [4>]eretz[<4], and surrounded the camp of the holy ones, and the beloved city. Fire came down out of heaven from God, and devoured them. {20:10} The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Esoterically, this refers to the destruction of images originating in fear and desire.

{20:11} I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the [5>]eretz[<5] and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them. {20:12} I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books.

A differentiation is made between "books" and the "book of life". "Books" includes memories of thoughts, emotions, sensations and movements of the body during previous lives.

This is one of the illusions which is consumed in the 'lake of fire'.

{21:2} I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband. {21:3} I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, God's dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. {21:4} He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes.

He measured the city with the reed, Twelve thousand twelve stadia. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. {21:17} Its wall is one hundred forty-four cubits, by the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. {21:18} The construction of its wall was jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass. {21:19} The foundations of the city's wall were adorned with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, [3>]yahalom[<3]; {21:20} the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, jacinth; and the twelfth, amethyst. {21:21} The twelve gates were twelve pearls.

The Revelation to Yochanan

 Chapter 22

________________________

{22:1} He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, {22:2} in the middle of its street.

Symbolic of the waters of Truth.

This is to be contrasted with the 'rivers of the Great River Euphrates' which are symbolic of the normal human consciousness.

On this side of the river and on that was the tree

In the Jerusalem Bible it says "trees of life"

of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month.

Esoteric.

The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

In the Jerusalem Bible it refers to the "trees of life...the leaves of which are the cure for the pagans".

My initial understanding of this is that it is both esoteric and exoteric.

I've had to set aside my study of herbal medicine for quite some time, but my first 'candidate' for such "trees of life" would be ginkgo biloba, one of the most researched herbs. And, although it is not the leaves that are used, I would also suggest the "tea tree"--maleleuca alternifolia.

{22:3} There will be no curse any more.

The Truth will be made known.

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants serve him. {22:4} They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. {22:5} There will be no night, and they need no lamp light; for the Lord God will illuminate them.

With the Light of Truth.

They will reign forever and ever.

{22:6} He said to me, "These words are faithful and true. The Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel

The Vision of the "Son of man".

to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon."

{22:7} "Behold, I come quickly.

This refers to the suddenness of the Revelation. It was not intended to be a Prophecy of the return of Jesus.

Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

The word "Prophecy" in this context is to be understood as referring to a Prophecy of the internal experience of Revelation.

{22:8} Now I, Yochanan, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things.

See also the book of Daniel

{22:9} He said to me, "See you don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book.

With those who have received the Vision of the "Son of man"--like Moses, David and Mohammed.

Worship God."

TAKE NOTE, Christians.

{22:10} He said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book,

See Daniel 12:9

for the time is at hand.

John had the responsibility of passing the Teaching on to others. This is of significance with regards to the fulfillment of the Prophecies.

{22:11} He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still.

Observance of the Moral Law.

He who is holy, let him be holy still."

Those with a Knowledge of Truth.

See also the Koran: "There should be no compulsion in religion."

{22:12} "Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me,

The Vision is the Revelation of Knowledge

to repay to each man according to his work. {22:13} I am the Alef and the Tav, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

In context, this has a different meaning than was used previously. Here it refers to the origin and annihilation of consciousness.

{22:14} Blessed are those who do his [1>]mitzvot[<1],

The pursuit of Truth is a Commandment and a work.

the Bright and Morning Star."

Confirmation and validation: Symbolic of the "resurrection of the dead".

{22:17} The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely. {22:18} I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, may God add to him the plagues which are written in this book.

This is a quite specific Prophecy of spiritual transformation through the receiving of Revelation. It is a traumatic experience. That is, the first understanding of the "plagues" mentioned here is the suffering associated with the destruction of the normal human consciousness and its images.

{22:19} If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, may God take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book. {22:20} He who testifies these things says, "Yes, I come quickly. "Amein! Yes, come, Lord Yeshua.{22:21} The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah

The word "Messiah" should not be used  in reference to a human person. See Jeremiah and Isaiah.
