A STUDY OF THE SCRIPTURES---Part 3
The Birth of Christ and His ministry as YAHSHUA--the Messiah
(From the basic tapes of Dr. Wesley A. Swift.)
compiled by Ella Rose Mast
As we turn to consider the greatness of this event, we realize that it is a good thing for Christians to recognize the birth of The Christ as the greatest individual event that happened in the course of the history of this earth. Without a doubt nothing was more important to our race since we were placed in the earth, than the return by the coming of The Christ, to our relationship with God. The most significant things concerning these events that we celebrate in our Christmas observance is the realization that almost 1/4 of a million years is involved in these developments. What would we mean by that since our race has only been on the earth for not quite 7400 years? Since the days from the coming out of the garden by Adam to Christ was 5400 years, and it has not been quite 2000 years since then thus making almost 7400 years then it must be because certain events were involved.
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod, the king behold! There came wise men from the east saying:---"Where is HE born KING in Judea?” For we have seen his star in the east and have come to worship him. If you will check the word Jew in your concordance you will find the word means as to a country, thus the above quotation is correct for Matt: 2:2. "We have seen his Star in the East"----How would they know which star to look for? In the east are thousands upon thousands of stars, a multiple of 10 times 126 trillion stars fill the sky from east to west and then north to south any single 24-hour day. How then would the Wisemen have known that a king was to be born in Judea, and then say:---"We have seen his star?” This is again a part of the history of our Adamic race for we know today that such a star did appear. Out of the records of Rome comes the fact that there was a phenomena in the sky at the time of His birth. These are the records of those observers at that time, and we have those records still available unto this day, in the civilian government of Rome. They tell of this phenomena of the sky, and they tell of the testimony of people who lived in Bethlehem at that time and of the things they said. They tell of the events in Jerusalem, and they tell of the visit of those Wise men, and who they were and from whence they came.
Today modern archaeology confirms all the history that took place around the time of the Birth of The Christ. Recently the Hearst newspapers published articles in their magazine section telling of the archaeology and the facts and records which have developed around Jerusalem concerning the birth of The Christ. Thus we can say that through the usual events that occurred we find the Biblical accounts are now certified as true strictly on the evidence that has now been developed. We tell you that this is a most significant thing because we look back through this record and it says:---"We saw his star in the east.’ A great many astronomers throughout the years has sought to find a solution to this problem. By the modern method of using sidereal calculator, we make definite tracings of times and positions to find out when and how, and how far back a certain set of conditions may occur. By the modern method of using sidereal calculators we made these tracings and there were certain thing that did happen at the birth of The Christ, and the evidence of these things are established. We go back--not to---but how did they know, and from whence did they receive this knowledge. We have told you in the past that the great star prophecies commenced with the great Patriarchs of our race as he was single out for the honor of acquiring the great knowledge and wisdom and becoming the great master teacher in this area of spiritual knowledge and understanding concerning God's plan, to our race--this Adamic race--God's Israel in earth. We find this great Patriarch about 400 years after the Adamic leaving from the garden because of the violation of divine law. He was an offspring of Adam thru Seth, a great and mighty Patriarch diligently applying himself to all the wisdom and knowledge he could acquire and he was none other than the great Patriarch by the name of Enoch. In fact almost all of the deep mysteries we find running thru the wisdom schools of Israel, and running thru the old testament started with Enoch. Significantly we know that Enoch was the one who wrote the Gospel of the Stars, with symbols and interpreting understanding that was taught so long in the wisdom schools of Israel. It must be remembered that Enoch had understood and laid out the foundations of knowledge long before the time of Noah, and before the flood which occurred in Noah's life time in the upper Tarium basin, and which affected much of that area. We know that Enoch's knowledge and understanding was not something that he had guessed at for he was instructed by the highest. We know that a great ship arrived at his door and those that summoned him came directly from THE MOST HIGH GOD. Their vehicle of transportation was one which took Enoch out beyond our solar system, and he described the number of planets in our solar system as he passed out through them. This was never consummated by our scientists with their great telescopes until 1931-32. Enoch knew of Pluto and he spoke of Uranus as being there before our Astronomers were sure they were in place even though they estimated that they should be there. The fact remains that Enoch had written about this. The great Temple in ON, Egypt had all these 612 stars of 1st., magnitude, all the procession of the equinox of both solar and lunar equinox in their proper relationships. The exact number of wanders moving through the sky was in this Zodiacal house built in Egypt by our forbearers.
This knowledge was given to Enoch, and if you go back to "The Pillars of Enoch,” and the "Secrets of Enoch" you will note that he was told these things as he came to the central area of the Pleiades. And when he came to this area of the heavens where the Throne of God is located. He tells of seeing the great beauty of this headquarters of the Universe. He tells how he was ushered into the presence of YAHWEH, and how YAHWEH looked at Enoch and HE said, ‘ You are My son.’ Enoch tells how it was brought back to him by the spirit of the realization of the days when he in Celestial realms, had walked in the court of the heavenly Kingdom. How God had told him that he--Enoch--had volunteered with others to go to earth as God told them of HIS plan for the earth and for the establishment of HIS Kingdom to bring back this area of the Universe into its proper relationship with HIM. Enoch tells of what was brought back to his memory and how he was told, ‘You were brought here in the flesh, so that you--as you return in the flesh--will remember--in the flesh--what you have forgotten of the spirit, because of the veil of flesh around you.’
Enoch was told of God’s plan for earth and if there is one great truth that you should know and understand, it is that you--the White race--were begotten in the spirit, and were an entity of God’s purpose and love, and that though your kinsmen are numbered in the millions, still, God knows and loves every one of you. There is not one thing that HE does not know, or has not planned concerning your destiny. HE wrote your names down in the Lamb’s Book of Life before the creation of this cosmos. HE has direct relationship and understanding with you--who possess spirit of HIS Spirit, life of HIS Life---and also a portion of the essence of HIS own consciousness. As such, you can draw out of the mind of God, and receive instructions and guidance from HIM. But there is a portion of HIS divine quality in each and every one of you, for you are HIS offspring. You are the children of the MOST HIGH GOD.
Enoch was to tell his kinsmen in earth that this was true. More than that Enoch was to tell them that they had lost a certain amount of that Divine power when they violated the Divine law in the first instance of their dwelling in earth. Thus God promised to restore the mighty power of full, glorified--Sonship to His sons and daughters. To every man and woman of the race an absolute and constant redemption, a mighty plan for carrying forward the work of His kingdom, for the overthrowing of the darkness, for the lifting up of the standards of life. That all of this was in the knowledge of God, and Enoch was told that the Mighty event that was essential to start again, the fullness of this development of release, and this mighty power would require that HE ---YAHWEH-God himself visit earth. That HE join with his race, that HE be born a baby out of the very race he had begotten in the spirit, and then had begotten in the creative purposes in the establishing of the Adamic household.
Enoch was thus told that HE--the Eternal YAHWEH--would be born as a babe among men. This new child born among men would be the Incarnate God. He was told that this would fulfill the words of the prophet Isaiah which he would later speak under inspiration:--"A virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name IMMANUEL"--meaning God with us.
Enoch was also told that there would be a sign that would mark this event, and he was told how they might know the measure, and he was told by the Almighty that "Long after you have returned from my presence, will my visitation be, but there shall be a certain sign--a star will move out of Aquila--a star shall cross from Aquila to the head of Virgo and this star has been on its route many, many years. When this star is above Virgo then Virgo will be in the measure of the Promise, and you will know that the hour is very close for there shall emerge 3 months after I have started the miracle of my birth ---a conjuncture of Saturn and Jupiter, and the 3 months after that another 3 months after that there shall be a conjunction will occur. Then 3 months after that there shall be a conjunction in the sky, as I enter the earth in my route of birth, in a human body. Enoch reported these things and more, for as these sign bring their measure, and the sighting measures include that the sign of the star is in its proper place, that the star would transverse--very quickly as it passes thru the alignment that you shall see in that sidereal system."
Enoch was told that in that day--those who would be watching, following instruction that Enoch was to bring back to earth, would be rewarded by being guided to the presence of this miracle---YAHWEH-God--Himself embodied in earth.
Enoch returned from the heavens and wrote his books and told his story, then went into Egypt with Job and the savants and they built the great city of On, with its Temple in the hub of a circle, and the Pyramid of measure and other things, and when these things were completed they had within these great constructions a hidden lore many times more of the symbol of lore than we have told you, because within these constructions were symbols, and measures which were marked as a great Star Gospel. From earth you would see all this, for it was marking a routine pattern of measure, and in this we are to note that a great dragon symbolic of Dragonis, which is referred to in the 12th., chapter of Revelation, the third to fifth verse:----"There appeared another wonder in the heavens; and behold, a great red dragon"---and now the symbol is given, "Having seven heads, and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head"---"And his tail drew a third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to earth; and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born".---But she brought forth a man child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, and then to be caught back into the heavens as the empowering, ruling YAHWEH-God.
The book of Revelation tells you this story, and the Patriarch Enoch also reported it, and he also told us that the sign of the dragon in the heavens is now the symbol of Lucifer and his fallen power, for remember that 1/3 of the angelic hosts of heaven rebelled with him, and also--now the Dragon-Lucifer stands with those fallen hosts and his minions in earth ready to devour--MY EMBODIMENT--at the time of MY birth. Thus the symbol of the dragon, and the symbol of the Virgin or Virgo, and the seed of the woman (Israel) who was to become the head of the woman (kingdom) were involved in the great Star Bible, and in the messages received by Enoch--which came direct from God and his Archangels.
Now; the woman (Israel) is the symbol of the Kingdom of God, and she is found in Revelations 12:1-2--"And there appeared a great wonder in the heavens a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of 12 stars. And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” This woman--the symbol of Israel, is the family of God, the kingdom of heaven and earth, the race into which God was to be born, so that he could redeem them and set them back in their place of Sonship. (Galatians 4:5)----"To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the placing of Sons."---(Adoption according to strong's concordance means--Sonship). Thus in this twelfth chapter of revelation you have the starting of the two kingdoms that will be on earth at the time of the Birth of the Christ child. Also who was under the law---that needed to be redeemed? None other than Israel the woman of Revelation 12:1-2.
These were the great truths that were reported in that record of Enoch and were taught, not only in Egypt but in the Mystery schools, and in the Master Masons teaching, and the great schools that came on down thru the ages to the time of the Temple of Solomon--and actually then on down to our time.
The Apostle Paul was to say "I am a Master Builder, a Mason--a wise master builder, and on no other foundation can any man lay than this which is laid in YAHSHUA"--who is the incarnate embodiment of Christ. There was also Joseph of Arimathea, the brother or Uncle of Mary, and he was a wise Master Mason, and a Master builder who not only owned the tin mines of Cornwall but others of that area, and his ships were the ones that were plying their trade through the Pillars of Hercules from Britain to Palestine, but he also had been taught much about the lore, and the lore was known thoroughly in Britain at that time.
From the time of the migration of the white race from the upper Tarim plateau they had studied the heavens, then with the coming of the wisdom of Enoch and his teaching of what to look for as the measure of the coming of their redeemer showed they watched more intently. Thus it was that the wise men of our race set up the great Do-rings--circles of stone. One was in the high mountains close to Tibet, and one was in Persia, and two were in Great Britain, with one of the sites at Stonehenge, and one at Avebury. At these sites they carried out the measuring of the equinox and the measuring of the heavens. Why the sighting planes, why its grooves, and why was this aimed at a certain point where Virgo would top a certain point in the heavens, and why was this sighting plane geared to the sign of Aquila? The ancient records to tell us that the tall white men came to these areas to measure the sky, and they talked about their God, the Mighty King, that would come to join and to redeem his people. In Persia they said, Yes we are waiting for the embodiment of the KING OF HEAVEN who shall come to earth. A later prophet was to cite--The Eternal God who is the Light of Life and resurrection and with the power to overcome death shall come, to liberate his children, and to establish his Majesty, and his righteousness:--Behold! We watch for His star, we know that the heavens shall proclaim his coming. This in the days of Zoroaster the prophet in Persia.
Significantly in their observations they made many records of astronomical observations that are still supported to this day, which show the exactness of these men who had been watching through the years. They reported every eclipse, they reported every conjunction, and they did it accurately. Out of these records recorded of old we find that today they have used the sidereal calculators to check the ancient records and they found that they were accurate and conclusive of the continuity with which these watchers had recorded. In fact it has been among the Mystery schools both in Druidry and in the ancient foundations of Masonry as well as in the standards of the "Light Carriers" that were present in the Essene company at the time of Christ----this knowledge of the coming of--The Redeemer, and the knowledge that the wise men watched and they waited for this sign. That they were meeting every seven years to compare notes, and then they returned again to watch and wait. The watchers were called Magi--why?---because they were men of wisdom who studied the phenomena of the sky and they waited for the sign of the coming KING. They waited for the time when the creator of the Universe--HE--who holds all things together, HE--the Almighty God, holding things together by the power of His spirit, and the energy of His own mind--HE wh o was to be born in earth, in a body and the fullness of God was to dwell bodily in that babe. That was the event they waited for, that was the great event that would shake the world. More than that HE was to identify himself with His race, and that was the most important and significant thing --for every Aryan--Manu--tall white man on the face of the earth---for by this method he proved that HE is our Father as He identified himself with our race.
In this instance we point out to you that such a phenomena as The Creator of the Universe, coming into such a small speck of the Universe as our solar system, it would be natural that there would be tremendous events portrayed in the sky, and today we know these things did happen for:---"We have seen His star in the east, and have come to worship HIM" No one can gainsay these men were superstitious and that they were wrong because you don't wait for an event like this, and then arrive and say you were wrong. They saw what they had waited to see, they took their measures an they arrived on time. Harvard University scientists and others had thought to answer the question of astronomers in their astronomical cycles as to what transpired, and they are well aware that there were major conjunctions for their sidereal calculators show that at the time of The birth of the Christ that there were major conjunctions of Saturn and Jupiter, and Enoch had been told that there would be this conjunction three times in the nine months that preceded his birth, with the last time at the climactic time of birth, and it took place exactly that way.
There was a star coming in as the observers saw in their observatories, but the calculators used at Heidelberg, and in Europe also proved that the star making its curve took 243,000 years to complete its ecliptic, and move to the head of Virgo which was again in that part of the end of the ecliptic, because then the star moved rapidly from the head of Virgo to the womb of Virgo, then went back into its ecliptic cycle.
In this cyclic form--YAHWEH who set this measure in motion, knew and established with purpose the planning of all these things. Even the star which finally crossed from the head of Aquila to the head of Virgo was 1/4 million years making its cycle, so do you worry about whether the Kingdom of God is going to survive, or whether God really thought this thing out? When you start a star which is going to be one of the measures of your birth, and it has already been 238,000 years in motion at the time God told Enoch that it would appear in the sky in about 5,000 years, then in that time span it happened just as Enoch had been told, that should prove HE knows what HE is doing.
To the Harvard scientists and others it was a sidereal impossibility for a star out therein space, millions of miles away, to have come to earth to produce this phenomena, for if it had moved this improbable distance and then transverse the earth, you wouldn't have been able to view it with the naked eye, so how could it have gone before the Magi, whose Wisemen had moved from Egypt to Jerusalem, and then on to Bethlehem? The problem for these scientists stemmed from the translation of the King James Version of our Bible. The early Masoretic text and the early Septuagint had been tampered with to such an extent that 1400 years had been taken out of the king line so as to make it appear that Christ had been born ahead of the time of the correct prophecy of Enoch. The early Alexandrian text said:----"Behold! A great Light went before them." This my friends is understandable, but also remember that there were other important things that happened that night.
The most important event in history of our race was THAT NIGHT when YAHWEH-God, who is our Heavenly Father and the begetter of our race became one with us. Born out of the same flesh and the same body which he had set in motion as Adam was brought forth as the Son of God. (Luke 3:38) Therefore, God joined his race, born of a woman of our race, emerged---God Incarnate in Human form. This then was a most important event and would naturally have a most unusual and significant set of measures surrounding it.
The Wisemen understood what was to happen, and they said:--"We have seen His Star in the East and have come to worship HIM.” What was the pattern of their movements?---We know that one of them came from the Kashmir Temple on the edge of India, and one came from Persia, and one from Britain, and one of them waited for his companions in Egypt. Every seven years these wisemen and their savants who numbered many more than the four, gathered together in Egypt to compare notes and measures taken, then they would go back to their watching stations to wait, and watch for future developments. We read in the writings of Avargus--a Persian--as he says that we have been watching and we note that this star is very close to the head of Virgo and we realize that this event is going to happen in our lifetime, for this star will move to the womb of Virgo demonstrating that this event for which we wait is very, very close. We also noted that there were unusual events that were in close sequence and they as they watched the conjunction came, in the place where they had been told it would happen, by that Wiseman who had been into the heavens and returned.
Avargus of course, was talking about Enoch who had been into the heavens, and returned. For Enoch had never died, the great space Vessel that took him into the heavens the first time, returned for him later and he went into the heavens without seeing death. Remember that Enoch was the first man that we have Biblical record of who rode in one of the Great Celestial chariots or space ships of the MOST HIGH GOD. He went into the heavens in the body, and he came back in a body, and when he had finished his ministry they took him back into the Celestial realms and the vastness of God's creation. Here then 5000 years later a Persian astronomer and a man of renown says:--'This was the man who told us these things and we have been studying the sky. Thus in all the generations of the wise ones, they had followed the voice of one who had gone into the heavens in a chariot and returned, and then gone back into the heaven
There is another story that comes out of Persia, and that is the story of the Fourth Wise man, but it is for another time, as only 3 Wisemen arrived in the beginning and presented their gifts of Gold, Frankinsence, and Myrrh.
But what about that strange light that guided them? It is recorded by the Romans as being a strange phenomena, a strange illuminating light of Glory, which came out of the heavens. The old Alexandrian text says:---'A great light went before the Wisemen, toward the birthplace of the King. The Wisemen knew this great light was hovering between heaven and earth, and slightly above and before them, and it stayed just ahead of them. When the Wisemen came to Jerusalem, the records show that they went to the Palace of the King. (Matthew 2:1-2)---And please note exactly what the King James Version has to say about this:---"When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, behold there came Wisemen out of the east"
Now; Herod was king of the Jews, and even Scofield says in the bottom of his scriptures that HEROD was first put on the throne, 40 years before Christ, at the time when he was but 15 years of age, but he says that Herod was a powerful King of the Jews. Thus here in Jerusalem at this time was Herod-king of the Jews, and with him were his Jewish soldiers, and his wisemen and then here comes these Wisemen of Israel and they are inquiring for the location of HE who was born King in Judea. These wisemen of Israel were given protection by Rome, as they were considered princeling of the wisdom schools, and they also represented great wealth and power, and because their great Master Builders organization was so strong that Pome had granted to these men the protection of Rome, and said that these Savants--Master Builders who were doctors and astronomers--Magi--they were covered by this proclamation that they could come in and out of the Roman Empire any time or any place they wished. They were not to be touched, or injured or hindered in any way. All this is recorded in Roman history. And now these three Wisemen and their company came before the court of Herod, and they looked Herod in the face as they asked:---"Where is HE born king in Judea? We have been waiting for this event for many, many years, thus the knowledge of His birth is a matter of record. Remember they were speaking to Herod, the king of the Jews, and they are in this territory controlled by Him. Herod intended to pass this kingship on to his children, and he does not know of any child being born who will take his kingdom from him. The scriptures were searched and word is brought to Herod that it is written by the prophets of Israel, saying:---HE is to be born in Bethlehem.
At this point in our story you should realize that the people here in power in Judea, did not know of the prophecy of the birth of the Messiah, to be born King in Judea. However this is not surprising when you know that Herod King of the Jews was not an Israelite. Whether he realized it or not, Herod was identified with the prophecy and symbolic meaning of Revelation:---"The dragon stood before the woman to devour her child as soon as he was born" (Rev: 12:4) Herod was of the endless Satanic seed, the house of ancient Jewry seeking to destroy the Messiah as soon as he was born. Can't you just imagine the Satanic seed saying:--"Go find the child, and let me know so that I may go and worship him?'
The Wisemen left the court of Herod with troubled minds for they did not like the attitude of Herod nor his visage. Then we are told that again the great light went before them, and now it stood over the house in Bethlehem where the young child lay. When the wisemen came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him, then they opened their treasures and presented unto HIM gifts of Gold, Frankinsence and Myrrh. Then being warned by the Great Father not to return to Herod they departed into their own country another way---but what way?---They returned again into Egypt, and from there returned to their own countries. More than this, Joseph also being warned and under instructions and intuitiveness of the wise men, took the young child and Mary the mother---in the night--and went a few days later into Egypt. There at the Great Temple in the city of On which had been established by Enoch and Job---there in that great white culture which had been preserved by Divine destiny, Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus remained until the death of Herod.
Let us turn again to the panorama of this event. The mystery of the great light that went before the Wisemen, for this great light was heavenly in scope, a vehicle of the Most High God sent to earth under the sign of the conjunction to guide the Wise men of destiny and prophecy, known to the Father from the beginning. "For the steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD" "His going out and his coming in are known unto HIM." So the scriptures do declare (Psalms 37:23---and Isa: 37:28) If this knowledge was given to Enoch then of course it was known to the Father that the Wisemen would seek, that they would gather to do service and honor to The KING at his birth, and that they would fulfill their mission.
Yes, it was that a great light went before the wisemen at the time of His birth. Remember the great light that went before and behind the Children of Israel as they left Egyptian captivity. These great lights are usually surrounded by luminous clouds which reflect the glory but hide what is in the clouds. In the book of Deuteronomy we have a little pattern of this, for Moses writes in chapter 33 of how God came from Sinai and rose up from Seir unto them, how He shined his great light forth from mount Paran, and how He came with 10,000 of his believing offspring when he brought the law to Israel. The day that God met Moses on Mt. Sinai, he came in with the hosts of heaven. The same kind of crafts that go out from before his throne by the thousands times ten thousands. There is a great light that shown down from the ships above and the glory of the spectacle US remember that this is the same thing that happened to Elijah the prophet, as it also happened to Enoch before him, for Enoch said that there was a great cloud outside his house and two men stepped out of that cloud. I quote to you that in the ministry of God's personal appearances and manifestations of his presence over his people, that in days of our exodus out of Egypt then God said:--"I was with you by day and by night. " (Exodus 13:21) He was in that glorious effulgent Cloud that hovered Over them, That cloud was a great effulging light which was covering a shape and a form of a great Celestial craft, and God was in the craft. He was not sitting on a mass of vapor, but was in one of the great flagships of the kingdom, and he was there during the entire exodus of the House of Israel, and he ran the Universe from this spot of His abiding presence. More than this, we know that in the instance of this, that these flag ships moved about in the days of the ministry of Ezekiel, for he tells about seeing these great circular ships, with their wheels within wheels, with their portholes and their living Creatures in them, and they moved out from the flagship of the MOST HIGH GOD. He tells how the great flag ship moved in and settled on the plains and their god talks to Ezekiel, and gave him a commission and responsibilities, then the great flag ship and the accompanying ships whirled away and out into space. Thus, Ezekiel told his story of the visitation of the MOST HIGH GOD AND THE HEAVENLY HOSTS.
Back at the time of His birth, in Judea, and out on the hills with their flocks were the Shepherds, and suddenly the great light shines around them. Then one of the heavenly messengers speaks unto them and they were sore afraid (Luke 2:9) We understand why they would be afraid as this strange phenomena takes place. The Angel said to Them:--"Fear not, for I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be unto all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior who is Christ the LORD! And this shall be a sign unto you for ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger"--Who was this babe?--HE was Incarnate Yahweh--thy YAHSHUA--translated as The LORD.
Vs:13----"And suddenly there was with the heavenly messenger, a multitude of heavenly hosts, singing the first Christmas carols that the world had ever heard. Singing Glory to YAHWEH in the highest and on earth--Peace to men of Good will.” Then --where did the heavenly hosts come from?---They came sailing in to sing for these shepherds who had been waiting for this birth. Do you suppose that God moved in to dwell among men in the most defenseless position of all as a tiny babe, and was not surrounded by heavenly hosts, and the tremendous power of His kingdom? The fullness of God dwelt bodily in this child all through his lifetime, and that is why he could confound the masters in the Temple or in far off London, or wherever he went to speak, for from the time he was a babe and up through his ministry the fullness of God was dwelling in his consciousness. Thus this was the fullness of YAHWEH-God now dwelling by this miracle with His race, and identified with his race, He was your kinsman, you of the race now embodied in the flesh were thus visited by our Father. (Hebrews 2:14) "For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he himself took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death."
Verse l6:---"For verily he took not on himself the nature of Angels, but he took on Himself, the seed of Abraham"---He took upon himself a body of flesh and blood, the same as His children who were embodied in flesh---this thus the Miracle. There is no doubt in my mind and of many observers today, because we have moved into a cycle of importance and enlightenment that there was a Light that moved before the wise men, they know that no star came so quickly that men could follow it, but the great light from the heavens was there.
God said:--"I shall be a lamp unto your feet, I will go before thee, and I will illuminate thy way." Thus these men were led by a hovering protecting leadership as your race has been led so many times before. I know that the sky the night of his birth was filled with heavenly ships, the great legions under Michael were standing by. There wasn't power in all Jewry in the world to destroy Christ that night even thou they might have thought they could. There isn't enough power in all the Universe to upset one small plan of God, and there never has been. God is victoriously and purposely contemplating the final victory of His kingdom.
We want you to take this thought---that God who started the measure in the heavens 1/4 of a million years before it happened, and then probably a couple of million years before that, when he put some of these processes into formation, and then brought them--on time--to the right place, on time, he timed the conjunctions, on time he had timed this event, and on time these great crafts were carrying out their responsibilities. The Hosts of Heaven were announcing that YAHWEH was going to be born in earth, what an amazing thing to be taking place. The Angels stood and they shouted their message and then sang their carols. Then the Angels stood later in amazement and wondered how YAHWEH-God could be so poorly received as he was by some who dwelt on earth. But never forget they were there, and they bore their testimony to these wise Essene shepherds who were on the hillside of Judea, being of the House of Israel they were expectantly waiting for the word of the birth of the Christ--Their King. The Essenes in the Caves and caverns of that old land were the true Israel --Levi Priests and those of their tribe of Levi--and as the Essenes came and went then the shepherds would move their flocks to cover the tracks that the Essenes had made and thus they would protect their dwellings and their great libraries they were amassing.
Thus it is that this story has been fulfilled, and by divine measure, astronomically and physically in earth. A great event and a tremendous one, for God had been born in earth---embodied as a child, and the majesty of that glory the light and the radiance of his effulgence was seen around that place. The very light and Glory of Heavenly hosts proclaimed his Glory, the phenomena and the effulgent glory of the Light that went before the Wisemen was sworn to in testimony. The records of the shepherds is that they came, and going back we find the records were discovered that all of these things were written about were true, for Pontius Pilate wrote later to Tiberius Caesar, after he had been visited by Christ--and recorded these many things. Pilate said; I have searched out and pursued all these facts concerning this MAN"S life and his coming, and there is no doubt that this is--The Eternal God of the heavens. We call him Jupiter, but they call Him YAHWEH, truly this was HE, We who are Christians celebrate the birth of our God into our race, for he begat us for the purpose of building His kingdom. This is a most important day because this day imparts back to us, the beginning of the restoration which took away from us, fear and darkness and a guilt complex. Consummated with one atonement the price for our errors, guaranteed us eternal life and put back upon us the assurance of power, that as this era in which we live brings the second event of The Christ there will be a restoration of such Glory upon you as the earth has never seen since you walked the streets of heaven. His first coming was important for we still celebrate the advent and remember. His second event will also be important for it will be one of the greatest historical events the world has ever known. This is part of the mystery of a great and tremendous event that is only for you---for again ---"Unto us (Israel) a child is born, unto us a son is given,” of our kinsmen and of our race. His name shall be called Wonderful--Councillor--the Everlasting Father, the Almighty God, the Prince of Peace, and upon the increase of his government there shall be no end. Upon the throne through the house of David to establish it with Peace and justice, henceforth and forever."
Remember this:---"of the increase of his kingdom there shall be no end." When the last hammer and sickle has been stricken from all the poles from which it flies, when the last emblem of darkness has been destroyed, when the last synagogue has crumbled to dust, when the last Jew is a forgotten memory of God’s deliverance of them from earth as he gathers out the tares and carries them out to their place of adjustment, when there is no longer one visage of the forces of darkness, then as the nations of the world and races of earth then as the nations of the world, and the races of earth are administrated by the kingdom of God--the kingdoms of earth will have become the kingdom of Our LORD and His Christ. The radiation of the Light and Glory of the event that started with that birth will come to fulfillment; and we will again say with joy the same things as the angels sang that night:--"Peace on earth to men of Good Will." There is no doubt that this measure in the heavens, this mystery of the star was the accompanying visitation of the heavenly hosts and together with HIM were many, many of the heavenly hosts, and they all sang:--The Praises of His Birth.
Yes, later the Angels were to stand in amazement at the way Almighty YAHWEH was greeted in earth by some who walked here; but during the ministry of this One Christ Jesus we have the embodiment of God--As Messiah moving among his people, speaking, proclaiming, opening the eyes of people who were blind and unstopping deaf ears. Performing miracles that even Rome with their casual approach to his ministry had to record, which were testified to and born testimony to both by their procurator in the city of Jerusalem, and by those they sent to investigate these matters. The fact remains that the thing which was a mystery even to Rome was the hatred and the animosity of official Jewry (Zionism) in the city of Jerusalem against the man who by their records and all they had been able to gleam in the land of Palestine had been to do good unto those that needed his healing hands, to spiritually speak words of life and hope to a people, and in all their records Rome's verdict was:---'We see no reason for all this animosity against this individual.
Lets look at the different races of people that were present here in Judea at the time of His birth and through his Ministry, at their religious beliefs and the government and those in control to try to understand this animosity against the Messiah. The Pharisees believed in many deep truths. They believed in the resurrection, they believed in the laws of God, they believed in what was known as the written law, and they believed in what was known as the oral law. The writings of the prophets such as Jeremiah, Isaiah, and others were added to the knowledge of the law and these together with spiritual covenants and promises provided the basis for decisions and action as well as for their hopes and expectations. Thus it was that the advice of the Ecclesiastical leaders which made up the oral law, and was called at one time the Mishnah law, and it is still under false misuse today, was still an important part of their beliefs. The Pharisees believed in the resurrection and this was not discussed much by Moses at the time of his writings but was discussed by Job who preceded him, a by the other prophets who had faith in its expectation. Besides being resurrectionist, the Pharisees also believed in and taught the laws of God, the hope of God, the eventual kingdom, the sovereignty of the white race, and the ultimate things that God was going to develop through them. The development of the two Kingdom's in the time of Jeroboam and their spread through captivity and the resettling of the ten tribes of Israel in Western Europe had not brought the Pharisees of Judah and Benjamin close to the portion of the Kingdom that had long since de parted that land, but their destiny was to be reunited in a later day.
Now; there was another group of people present in Palestine called the Sadducees, and these were made up of the Hittites, the Cainanites, Amalakites, Herodians, Hasdiums and others and these people were not the descendants of Abraham at all, tho there had been some intermarrying as in the case of Esau, but they called themselves Judeans, and today the word is Jew, altho the word Jew originally came from the word "Yehudin" which meant accursed. The fact remains that these people being Sadducees had come out of a background of pagan philosophies which had affected India and other parts of the earth, had helped to build and dominate these religions and they were ardent reincarnationists. They operated with a concept that it made no difference what transpired, they would return to get the wealth they had accumulated, the power they had gained, and that they would even expend their lives for this conquest of power. They had no spiritual, ethical, or moral obligation to anything but their creed of obtaining power. They formed a part of the Luciferian descendants. They were not descendants of Abraham although they called themselves Judeans and Hebrews and had attached themselves to the strange theocracy which existed in Palestine at that time.
Rome had permitted the administration of Palestine to remain at the Temple level so the Sanhedrin made up the high court of the land. Hence the Herodians, these false non-Israelites whom Jesus was to identify as children of the devil demanded that they share the seats of the Sanhedrin according to their number. Under Israelitish law if it had not been for the conquest of Rome, they would have deported these people as undesirables out of their nation. Someday, America will awaken to the truth and deport out of her country this undesirable, inassimilable people who still continue the same subversion they were practicing in the days of Jesus. Even when the Sanhedrin was thus composed the Pharisees still were in the majority. The Sadducees lacked sufficient numbers to capture the election. They could not appoint for themselves a High Priest, altho they had been planning for some time to attain this power. There was one man by the name of Shamah, a Sadducee of the House of Hashdium, who desired to gain control of the temple, for he was a man of great influence. Thus, Shamah said:---I will renounce the Sadducees and proclaim myself a Pharisee, I will proclaim that I have accepted the principles of the Pharisees. I will proclaim that I believe in the resurrection, that I follow the teaching of Moses, and that I believe in the great spiritual law and moral law as well as the written law. Thus I will be numbered among the Pharisees in the Sanhedrin, and then they will have to select numbers of my house, for this will raise the numbers of the Pharisees in the Sanhedrin'--This is a typical trick of the powers of darkness, to proclaim something that you are not to be used to gain political power. This then was the method used to gain a foothold in the Sanhedrin, and then later to gain control of the Sanhedrin and the Priesthood, in the city of Jerusalem.
We have a name in our English language that came down from that day, and the word is shame. It comes from the name of the man Shamah. For there is no higher shame than for a person to declare theologically that which was not true in order to gain power over the House of God, to conquer and reduce it to slavery. Thus, the false Sadducees with Roman prestige were seated in the Sanhedrin. And when the election came in 7 A.D. they elected Annas, a Canaanite as High Priest. They increased their number with each succeeding priest, and since previous priests of the upper echelon of the ruling house were members o the great Sanhedrin, then by the time of the Ministry of The Christ---12 more were added to the 71 members of the Sanhedrin, and that brought the number who had voting power to 83 members, and this was instead of the 71 members as commanded by the Mosaic law. This was the 83 members instead of the original that would be present at the trial of Jesus the Christ.
As we read of the ministry of The Christ, we are sometimes confused as we read the King James Version, by the continued reference to people by names which are misleading. The original text can straighten out this confusion but many people do not possess a comparison of these texts and thus do not realize the design of those who helped translate the King James version, to confuse your faith and your race. An example of this is the word Pharisees. Many times this should have been translated as Shamah or False Pharisee. We see this from the Aramaic text and also from the early Alexandrian text, thus the True Pharisee with a true outlook were the theologians of that time. By the time of The Christ in his early boyhood the Temple had been taken over, and at the time of his ministry it was completely dominated by these Cainanite Priests, who had turned it into a house of Merchandise, like a great supermarket. They were dealing in fraud, even selling the animals for the sacrifice. They changed the money the people brought into Jerusalem from other parts of the world into their Temple marks and obtained the great financial benefits from this process of International banking designs which were carried on from the steps of the Temple. You will remember that during His ministry the Messiah---turned and said to them:--"Ye have made my Father's house a den of thieves"---(Matthew 21:12-13) And he drove the money changers out of the Temple.
This is an example of the happenings in Jerusalem under this strange and pagan Priesthood. Still the theology of Israel carried on even under the control of this strange and pagan Priesthood, but there were two outstanding and brilliant young teachers who taught the theology to the young students in one corner of the outer court of the temple. These two teachers were Gamaliel, and Nicodemus. Gamaliel was a great and honest man, and he taught philosophies related to the thinking of the people. He taught that God would reach down and forgive violations of the law, and that the processes of His spirit would bring about repentance, because after all HE was Almighty YAHWEH-God. Nicodemus was also an honest man, who belonged to another school of theology among the Pharisees, and this school taught that the individual would have to make certain decisions and accept certain principals, otherwise he might be cast out into some area where it would be impossible to discover him. To identify them today we would say that Nicodemus was a Methodist and Gamaliel was a Calvinist or a Baptist, for their theology was related to the issues of Grace. Originally the Apostle Paul was taught by Gamaliel. When Paul became an ardent follower of the Christ you will note that his doctrines were filled with this Grace-thus reflecting the teachings of Gamaliel, then add to this the "Apocalypse of Paul" which he wrote after his heavenly experience and you will see the background for the things he wrote in his Epistles. I wish that each one of you were able to take down these passages as we give them for we shall show you the position of how these this happened:---(Matthew 22:15)
"The false Pharisees (Shamah Pharisees) took counsel how they would entangle the Christ in his talk" They would do this in order to accuse HIM an destroy HIM. This is the time when the disciples of the false Pharisees came with the Herodians saying:--"Master, We know that thou art true:"---then in verse 17 came their trick question. "Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar?" Jesus of course knew what they were doing, and He knew every thought of their minds. This was only one phase of their conspiracy, however they would try again and again.
(Matthew 23:1-8)---Jesus said:--"I know who you are, you love the uppermost Seats and rooms at the feast. You want the chief seats in the chief seats in the synagogues. You love to be called Rabbi! Rabbi!---then verse 8----But be ye not called Rabbi, for one is Your master and that is the Christ"
Matthew 23:13-29---------Again, Jesus speaks to them saying:---"Woe Unto you scribes, Shamah Pharisees, hypocrites, ye who encompass the sea and the land to make one proselyte to your faith, and making him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves"----"Woe unto you blind guides which say:--whosoever shall swear by the gift to the priesthood, he is guilty."---continue reading thru verse 29 and understand that Jesus is talking to the false Pharisees the Cainanites in control of the Temple here in Jerusalem.
(Matthew 23:30)----Then these False Pharisees and their disciples answered Jesus and they said:--"If we had lived in the days of our fathers we would not have killed the prophets we would not have destroyed the messengers of God. We would not have spilled their righteous blood."---And now Jesus was to answer them and note carefully his words. (Matthew 23:32)" Ye have just borne witness of yourselves that you are the children of the prophet killers" Notice the positive identification that they were not of the house of Abraham, rather they were Cainanites, Hittites, and Amalekites and others. They measure up the full measure of their fathers, for they would crucify the whole Christian world with their communist Zionist revolution.
(Matthew 26:2)-----"After two days from the Feast of the Passover, the son of man will be betrayed and crucified." We read that the chief Priest and the scribes, the elders of the people were at the palace of the high Priest, called Caiapas. In this meeting they discussed how they might take Jesus and kill Him. Not by a process of just law; not a process of Jurisprudence, but a conspiracy in the High Priests house. As of yet there had been no trial of Jesus, and here the people who would preside over his trial were already plotting how to take him and to kill HIM. One of the disciples was one of the enemies, for remember:----' I have chosen twelve and one of you is a devil".---Jesus was warning his disciples that one of them was a devil, then in verse 71 (John 6) he went ahead and identified him. After this Jesus walked in Galilee because the Jews sought to kill HIM. In Galilee he was among his family and his friends. This is where the patriots were, and the zealots came from there as well.
Jesus came to Bethany after his friend Lazarus died and after the 6th., day he called Lazarus out of the tomb and he came forth, and the miracle is recorded even in Rome as they told of the resurrection of Lazarus. Now the High Priest was talking and they had to find a way to stop this Messiah before he took over that land again and removed them from their places of power, so they plotted how to put Lazarus to death again. (John 12:10) Can you imagine someone so utterly evil in their thinking that after a miracle of God raising a man from the dead, that in their hatred they would want to kill the man all over again? This should give you a glimpse of the soul of your enemy.
(John 7:33-34---"Yet a little while and I am with you, then I must go unto He who sent me. Ye shall seek me, yet ye shall not find me, for where I go, Ye cannot come. Who was Jesus talking to in this passage? Jesus was saying that he would be soon going into the Eternal Spirit that holds the heavens and earth together, and his children can go back into the spirit from whence they came s he was talking to these Cainanites who plotted to kill Lazarus once again. These said:---"Where can he go that we cannot find him?"--Then they said:-"Will he go out among the ethos of the nations, and to the dispersed among the nations and teach them?---They knew that the dispersed tribes of Israel were scattered and had settled in Europe, and they knew that one place they could not go was into Anglo-Saxondom, and into the heart of Germany for it was not permitted at that time for a Jew to enter those territories.
Nicodemus the teacher said:--'Does our law condemn any man before it hears him Then the fury was turned on him and they asked:--"Are you a Galilean also?" Search the scripture and see what prophet comes out of Galilee. They were saying that Jesus is not one of us and neither was Nicodemus--both were Galileans. This was not the Israelite law that was seeking to condemn and kill a man before he was heard, or before proven guilty, this was the law of the Pagan Priesthood at Jerusalem at the time of the Christ.
Today we find that the controlled press can condemn a man before it hears him, and I wonder where they got that idea?
Matthew 26:14-15---Judas Iscariot went to the High Priest and said:---" I will betray him into your hands. I will identify him but what will you pay me for this?" --Well! For 30 pieces of silver was the Master Creator of the World sold--for 30 pieces of silver!
You now have a bit of history as to the events of what happened in Judea leading up to the crucifixion. We have the two factions identified as the Cainanites now in control of the Temple, and the Sanhedrin, and the Israelites of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin in the minority positions of power. Still those in the minority planned for the coronation of their King, and from the soldiers of the Blue Tunic army who had gathered his Essene company--Barabbas, then hoped to become the captain of the army for The Christ. The Essenes Priesthood had prepared the crown for The Christ as well as the Chalice and the cup, all these followers were prepared for whatever was to come but they were hoping to Crown HIM--King. However they had been warned by John the Baptist that HE would take the Chalice so they were prepared for that event also.
On the day when they would have crowned him King--Jesus spoke these words to his people:--"Altho I am your king, and it is my right to reign, yet I will not rule over an empire of slaves, a people bound, and who have no freedom. Therefore I must keep my covenant and my promise that I have made. I must be the Lamb slain from the foundation of creation. I must take my cup the cup of My Priesthood and your deliverance." "But the day will come when I will take the crown and in that day the kingdom will not be delivered to the Jews." These words were to be historic, and The Christ repeated them during the events of the next few days.
In those hours after He had partaken of the last supper with his disciples, and he had turned to Judas of Iscariot and said:--"Go do the things you have to do,” (John 13:27) Then a few hours after this we find Jesus and the disciples as they went to the garden of Gethsemane, and there being wearied with all the pressures and the tensions of the week, and of this hour and not knowing and understanding the fullness of what was ahead the disciples one by one dropped off to sleep, while the Almighty YAHWEH--embodied in the body of a man kept watch. Here in the garden of Gethsemane He was moving into the final drama and most significant phase of his Messiahship, this being the restoration of his children without fear to a life of freedom and liberty, and to lift them out of their guilt complex of condemnation and fear, and to set them free for all times.
Here in the garden then Jesus filled the cup from the water of a small spring and then following one of the legal acts of the kingdom which was known back in the days of Enoch and in the times of Seth, as the ceremony of a transference with clear water. Jesus, in all the elements of His humanity had come to the point where he must now consummate the hardest thing he must do, even harder than the Cross. For upon this being of YAHSHUA--The Messiah there had been up to now no transgression, and yet with full knowledge and knowing all the full impact of that day, and all the catastrophe it would cause, and knowing all the processes of all troubles and pain that had swept the Universe knowing the earth and all that was involved in all the cares and worries of every man, and knowing that the greatest fear of all was death, then here in the Garden--The Christ lifted up that Cup. And in his humanity he cried out to the Spirit within HIM that held HIM up for in his perfection and his understanding, His humanity would have pushed the Cup away. Yet it was not the fear of that Cup, or the fear of the Destiny that was ahead, it was not--the will of the flesh--but now the WILL OF THE SPIRIT that must be done. For upon this body and with the water of legality we see this drama, and we hear Jesus speaking:-----"I assume all the guilt of every violation of law, and every transgression and every error that has beset. With THIS CUP I NOW ASSUME ALL THIS UPON MYSELF."
In that very Moment in the Garden of Gethsemane, the Almighty YAHWEH in the body of flesh, of a man assumed upon Himself all the transgression, and all the guilt that had occurred from the time that Lucifer left his presence in the heavens until the final day when Lucifer will in the future bow the knee. And there in the Garden--The Almighty said:--"I assume all this upon Myself"---and then HE drank the cup to the last drop that it contained. In that moment, a perfect and immaculate Lamb had assumed upon Himself all the transgression and consummated under Holy Law the necessity of his death. This is why, when the soldiers came to seize him and Judas Iscariot betrayed him with a kiss. Then as the disciples arose to defend him he said to Peter:--"Sheath thy sword.” Then HE said--"I could call a legion of Angels, and if this were the hour when I was to assume My kingdom then my soldiers would fight and my kingdom would not be left with the Jews." (John 18:36)
In that moment a great feeling of despair came over the disciples because they could not understand what was about to take place. The disciples followed at a distance as the soldiers took their Messiah to the presence of the court at the Temple, and Peter stood outside the Temple, and in fear, he even denied that he was HIS disciple, but Andrew had picked up the cup and the Chalice that had fallen by the side of the stone where Jesus had knelt and he ran with them to the home of Joseph of Arimathea to tell him that they had taken the Messiah to the temple, for he had been betrayed this night.
Remember that in that hour the Christ took upon Himself every portion of the quilt of any individual of all times, all errors and all mistakes, all transgression---ALL WAS IN THAT CUP. And that cup of clear water had become more weighty upon the soul of YAHWEH than any experience that He could assume. For that which was righteous had taken upon Himself as all deity---the accountability for your deliverance. We know the intensity of that hour for we know what HE assumed, but some of his supporters said that HE sweat great drops of blood.
Later they led him to the hill of Golgotha, and drove the nails in his hands and feet and then dropped that cross into the hole in the rock. On either side of him they placed a man, called a thief by Rome and one a patriot by the standards of Israel, and the enemies of the temple, being usurpers--then turned to their own to find that the place of residence of Barabbas was to be known and they wanted him for he had taken the supplies that should have come into The Temple.
As HE hung on that Cross one of the so-called thieves said:--if you be the Christ--Messiah--then come down from the Cross and save yourself and save us also. But the other man having caught the same vision that the disciples had earlier caught before the moment of despair swept over them said:--"Master remember me when thou comest into thy Kingdom. " Jesus answered him saying:--
"This day shalt thou be with me in Paradise"
Here at Calvary, YAHSHUA the Messiah had placed the care of his earthly mother in the hands of John, and he had forgiven the Roman soldiers for driving the nails in his hands and feet for they did not know what they were doing. Then remember that these Roman Soldiers were of the tribe of Gad, one of the tribes of the children of Israel, they were sons of God, and were just following orders, not understanding what they were doing. As for the Priesthood of Jewry who had ordered this crucifixion---they said:---"His blood be upon us and our children"---and the mob that followed them had no part in this matter for they were but followers. But Here on Calvary Jesus said:---"It is finished' his head fell onto his chest and death came upon this body of YAHWEH-God. Then the wind began to sweep with gale like intensity and the earth rocked with a great Earthquake, and the events that started happening from that moment on were some of the most unusual events of History, and because of those events, You and I are free.
(Matthew 27)"Jesus cried with a loud voice and he yielded up His spirit, ant at that moment Lightening hit the Temple and split the veil of the Temple from top to bottom, and it then went up in flame, and no longer could the Jews call this a Holy Temple for it was open to the gaze of all, --it was left unto them desolate. Let me point out one great fact that developed, as the earthquake rocked and tore at that very hill, and we find that we are told that as the rocks were rent that the graves were opened up and the Saints started coming out of their graves, and they went into the city of Jerusalem. But who were these Saints?---In the 33 rd chapter of Deuteronomy remember how God came with His Saints--these were his offspring, and these here in Matthew 27 were more of the Adamic race, the children of God, fulfilling destiny. Also we know that two sons of the former High Priest, by the names of Charinus and Lenthius who had died in the early part of the ministry of Christ now were walking the streets of Jerusalem. Their father had in the past served in the Great Temple, and then had been put in the smaller temples of Judea as the Cainanite Priests took over. The people seized these two sons and they said:--'Tell us what has happened, and where have you been, and how is it that you can walk the streets of Jerusalem at this time? These two men could not talk but they were given tablets and placed in separate rooms and they wrote of their experiences from the time they had died, until now when they returned to walk the streets of Jerusalem. The early church fathers prized this record highly, and we have the record for it incorporated in the writings of Nicodemus and Clements, and it was also in the writings of the early church fathers. It is a matter of Roman record and still today is in the ancient Roman records.
Think of the Majesty of these events as these men described them---as they foretold the fulfillment of passages of scripture. For now The Christ--HIS spirit free from the physical body but carrying upon it His soul consciousness resident has the right to plunge into the Netherworld. But why the Netherworld? ---Because this Netherworld in Inner earth was the area where the sons and daughters of the Adamic race had their conscious Celestial natures bound, --from the day of their death in the earth they had been bound here in the inner earth under the control of Lucifer. He could not torture them, and there was no flaming perdition that involved them, but they were within the Prison chamber of the Netherworld, and they could not immediately move into the spiritual world from whence they had come because they were under this bondage of Adam's fall. There is also another vast portion of inner earth that is dwelt in, and this is ruled over by Angels who did not keep their first estate. And also here were people who had served Lucifer ever since his rebellion. This is the concept of the Netherworld, and this was known back in the days of Enoch and Job. They also knew that a promise had been made, a promise of deliverance They knew that the day would come when Lucifer could no longer hold them bound in the seat of their thinking, or in their soul consciousness, or by any process. And that day then no longer could Lucifer hold them captive in the inner earth.
We know that one of the promises was that The Christ was going to set his people free, Isaiah had said:---"The people that are in darkness shall behold a great light." David talked about this as well, and then here came these two men back to Jerusalem, and they recorded the events that had happened after their death, and they told how they had gone into the netherworld and there they had found the Adamites. The Patriarchs from Adam on down--thousands upon thousands who dwelt there --of this Adamic race --and all wanted to be free. They wanted to dwell in the full light of the Shekinah glory. They wanted to be enveloped in the full radiance of their Celestial natures, and in power. But they were under bondage and thus they awaited their Messiah, and this day they had waited for so long. As each day developed in those days of The Christ and the news of the happenings reached the Netherworld they rejoiced for their deliverance was nearer. In fact the day that Jesus stood before the tomb of Lazarath and said:--"Lazareth come forth"---then here in the Netherworld they had never seen anything like it for many ages, for the Netherworld could not hold the spirit and soul consciousness of Lazareth when YAHSHUA called--and the word went forth that the Christ--YAHWEH in a physical body was in earth, that the Messiah had come. Now Isaiah could quote prophecy that he had written when he was upon the earth, and David also could quote the scriptures of promise ---"Thou cans't leave my soul in the netherworld, or my body in the grave." Remember these were promises, and these were covenants to the Adamic race. (Ps 49:15 and Isaiah 26:19)
Charinus and Lenthius then continue with their story as found in The Gospel of Nicodemus:---suddenly there was a cry:--"Open up ye endless gates of time --The king of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory but the LORD strong and mighty, He is the King of Glory, the LORD mighty in battle---yes, the King of Glory--open up the Gates of the Netherworld for this King of Glory shall come in.?" And this cry penetrated the Netherworld, clear into the part where the Adamic prisoners were held. They listened, then their hopes and their expectations leaped and they knew what was transpiring. Then we are giver this panorama of events and I would read to you the words of the Psalmist of what was to transpire. "Lift up your heads, and Oh Ye gates be lifted up Ye everlasting doors, for the King of Glory is coming in." Who is the King of Glory but the Lord mighty in battle, thus lift up your heads for this King of Glory is none other than the Almighty YAHWEH, the King of Hosts--the King of Glory. David had written this in the 24th., Psalm in the 7-10th., verses and when David heard the cry being sounded forth by the Angles demanding admission for The Christ, then David's heart leaped and he said:--"This is the thing that I have heard, and my soul bears witness that this is the hour."
We are told that those in darkness and in semi-darkness in the Netherworld suddenly saw a great light. Illumination filled the whole place and Beelzebub the fallen angel in charge of the place cried out to Lucifer--who is it that you have brought here? In learning who it was he cried:--"How dare you bring this Jesus of Nazareth to this place? We could not stop HIM as he called forth Lazareth from here, and he has taken from us by the force of his power others that we held captive, so how can we hold these captives if you bring him here? How can we bind HIM---what guards do we have against HIM?'
Lucifer replied:--I did not bring HIM, for of his own Will he took upon Himself all the transgressions of all people of the earth. But we shall hold these because the wages of sin is death by His law, and we shall hold them!' The Prince of Perdition spoke forth to Lucifer and said:---'Know ye not that this is the Almighty YAHWEH--in a human body, and he has assumed the transgressions of all times, by HIS power, Now we are surely undone!"
The light grew brighter and brighter and finally filled the whole place, a YAHSHUA walked into the Netherworld, and he started proclaiming the great truths of destiny and bringing back things to their memories and recalling the promises made to the Adamic race, fro before the foundation of the World. And unfolded the Majesty of His Glory, and He told the listening Adamic race that HE had come to take them back to where they had come from, that He had paid the price and set them free. For He that is dead is free from sin, and YAHSHUA HAD ASSUMED ALL THE TRANSGRESSIONS UPON Himself, and because HE died then the Adamic race were to live, and because HE is the Almighty YAHWEH-YAHSHUA He can never die. In these instances of these declarations they tell us that for three days all the powers of the Netherworld had to listen to the power of the ministry of YAHSHUA--The one called Jesus the Christ, and as the Apostle Paul said:---"He went down and preached to the captives, and he led those who were in captivity, out of there, thus led his many sons into Glory. ( Hebrews 2:10)
WHAT AN HOUR THAT WAS:---In the first hour that Christ was in the Netherworld he started sending some of his sons out of there:--He said to Charinus --you go, and then to Lenthius he said:---You go out for you’re of this generation also and they will remember you two and you will be a witness before them.
Can you imagine what happened as consciousness after consciousness went forth? As the enveloping spirit even resurrected the body that was in the grave? Men then were to write of what had transpired. They wrote of the fact that there was in that preaching, and in that message, the assurance that when YAHSHUA--The Nazarene went forth out of that grave as he arose on the first day of the week that there would not be one single soul consciousness of his children, from Adam on down to the time when YAHSHUA entered into the Netherworld that would be left there in that prison chamber of the Netherworld. That after that day they could enlarge the quarters of the Netherworld, and use this area where the Adamic race had been bound, because never again would these quarters be occupied by the sons and daughters of the ALMIGHTY YAHWEH.
You still say:--What does that mean?----it means that when The Christ paid the price for sin, he broke the bondage that Lucifer had over the soul and over the spirit of the Dadamic race, these sons and daughters. Never again would Lucifer be able to hold them in bondage. Oh, there are men whose minds are in bondage in this world. There are even theologians that are in bondage, and also churches who preach that type of theology are in areas of bondage and they actually still anticipate that many people are going into that area of bondage where in Lucifer can still control, but I want you to know that there is no power that Lucifer has, or the imps of perdition have over YOU, since the resurrection of HE who is called Jesus the Christ. When HE came forth from that grave, a great and mighty company followed HIM. Their celestial nature and their soul consciousness heard their SHEPHERD. Now; they did not all raise their bodies at that time, for only those whom He sent forth from the Netherworld while he was there raised their bodies and walked and talked with the people of Jerusalem. There were some selected for this task, but the rest of them with their soul consciousness resident in their Celestial bodies were now free from the control of Lucifer. This great and Mighty host went into the planes of spirit, and never again shall the bondage of satanic forces, or Satanic power rule over them throughout all eternity to come. And they are that mighty company who with those who have passed on since that day, who will returning in Mighty triumph in the day when THE CHRIST SHALL AGAIN PLACE HIS FEET UPON THE EARTH, AND HIS KINGDOM SHALL ROLL TO THE MIGHTY VICTORY HE HAS ASSURED US WILL COME.
We want you to think for one moment ---All the power of evil, all the forces of darkness, all that sought to wage a war and hold captive the children of YAHWEH, and they did hold captive most of these children, outside of Elijah, Moses, Enoch and a few that had gone into the planes of spirit without tasting death, such as Jesus introduced the disciples too on the mount of transfiguration (Mark 9:2-4) But that very day there in the Netherworld we are told that Jesus led this great number of sons and daughters out of captivity and into Paradise which was still within the inner earth. And here in Paradise they found waiting for them the thief who had hung on the right side of Jesus at Calvary. This man who had said to Jesus---"Remember me when you come into your Kingdom. "
(Luke 23:42:43) This thief had passed instantly into Paradise and the captives met him as they came into Paradise this portion of the Netherworld from which they entered into physical life. Then Jesus told them ---see--this is the man was on the cross--who was hanging there with Me, but see--this man has eternal life.
There is no question about the magnitude of this event, for when we consider what transpired inside Jerusalem, and when we recognize that the very Priests who had felt the earth shaking, those who had made fun and harassed the disciples were not now sneering even before his resurrection--instead they were frightened at the terrible impact upon the earth when the body of the Almighty God had surrendered his life so that he might cleanse all transgression. That my friends, was the mighty victory, and if it had not been for that event, the resurrection would not have its significance today.
Going back to the disciples, we realize that they were without a doubt going through one of the hardest experiences of their lives. For three years they had walked with YAHSHUA--Their Messiah, they had witnessed the tremendous healing power that had flowed thru him. They had watched him still the winds and the waves, and they had watched HIM open the eyes of the blind and lay his hand upon the crippled children. They had even watched him restore a son to a mother in the midst of a funeral. They had felt that unlimited power, and they knew that never had a man spake like this man spake, and the very aura of His own spirit had cleansed their lives. As they walked with him they had no fear, and they did not question that someday the time would come and the kingdom would be restored, and HE would rule and the Kingdom would last forever. But then with the words:---"It is finished"---and the soldier plunged his spear into HIS side and blood and water of the broken heart came out--then the disciples said: ---'It is over, he is dead, and they turned away and went to Joseph of Arimathea who would go to Pilate for permission to bury HIS body in the new tomb which belonged to Him. The disciples were filled with grief and they dispersed, to the these were the blackest of days, the darkest hours that men can know.
Those in power here in Jerusalem were also uneasy and were feeling as though something was to happen so they seized Joseph of Arimathea and they locked him up because they said that he had turned against them, and had buried by honorable burial--this Blasphemer. They planned to try Joseph of Arimathea the first of the week, after the Sabbath and feast day was over. They ordered the tomb guarded so that the disciples could not come and steal away this body of Their Christ, and then claim he was resurrected. 100 soldiers of Rome and the Temple here in Palestine were placed as a guard around the tome to prevent this which they feared. Strange as it may seem---there were witnesses--in this hour when the resurrection came to pass, and even one of the chief Centurions would give this Testimony to Pilate, and that testimony is on record yet today in Rome. Thus we can know what transpired on that morning. Thus we know that the resurrection took place, and that the Glory of YAHWEH filled that place, that the stone was rolled away and the light of Glory shown out upon those soldiers and they were stricken as tho dead men.
A few hours after this the Cainanite Priests were pounding on the door of Pilate’s abode and they said:--"His body has been stolen, the disciples came and they have taken the body away, and your own soldiers are lying about this matter. "But the soldiers said:--no--do you think we would lie and lose our lives. We could do nothing for we were powerless. The Roman Centurion then turned to these Priests and he said:------"I have a question for you---we know where YAHSHUA-Jesus is, but where is Joseph of Arimathea that you locked up so that you could try him this day in your judgment hall? The Cainanite Priests answered:---"Joseph is in jail.” But the Centurion said:---'better go look for he in not in jail for we saw him join this son of Glory as he came forth out of the garden tomb, and they left together.' Then the Priests hurried back to Pilate and they said:----There is something strange going on here for someone had let Joseph of Arimathea from our prison---where can he be? And someone else said:--'Joseph has gone to Bethany and the Roman soldiers then said: ---"Jesus had gone to Galilee, for we heard him say to one who stood before him:----"I go unto my brethren in Galilee." (Mark 28:7---Matthew 26:32---and Matthew 28:7) And now the Priests took out their sacks of gold and told the soldiers to say that his disciples had come and taken away HIS body. The Roman records contain all that transpired at that time, the Archo volumes contains this, and most of the ancient records we have of the history of not only the Saints, but the conditions that surrounded those days all leave a record, that is unimpeachable, and all tell the wondrous story
We would recall to your memory the instance of the coming of Mary to the tomb, and her meeting with Jesus, and how she recognized His voice, how she hurried to tell the disciples that He is alive---HE IS RISEN. Then ss the disciples now with hope gathered to discuss this situation --YAHSHUA-Jesus walked thru the wall and joined them and said:---"go tell all my brethren that I have Risen and that I go into galilee, and there we shall meet again"--Remember how two men were on the road to Ammaus (John 24:13) how they were so despondent until Messiah appeared unto them, and they saw that it was HE and they said:---"Our LORD and our God"---'Our YAHSHUA and our YAHWEH Elohim. And they remembered that He had said to them:--"ought not God to have done what He did?"Could God embodied do anything less than this? These men said that their hearts burned strangely within them as He talked to them, and this is the mess they carried as they went back to Jerusalem, back to the people, back to the disciples:---"We saw HIM--We talked to HIM---He is alive--HE is Risen.
The disciples were gathered together in Galilee and Thomas was with them. They told Thomas of what had transpired, but Thomas still deep in discouragement said:--"I would have to see the nail prints in His hand before I can believe that He is alive---remember I saw him die---to me the Messiah is dead."(John 20:25)
But then what happened?--The Messiah came thru the wall and he spake to them, and he said:---"Thomas come hither, for I am not a spirit just because I passed thru the wall--I am flesh and bone--Thomas come and put your fingers here in my hand, and feel for this is a real hand. Come and put your fingers here in the hole in my side as you said that you wanted to do.--Come --know that I have risen, that I am alive, and this is flesh and bone." (John 20"27) For Thomas this was no longer necessary, and he dropped to his knees and said:---"My LORD and my God"---My YAHWEH ELOHIM---. And Jesus said to Thomas:---Blessed are those who will come long after thee, and that are going to believe even though they have not seen.
One of the great victories of today is that their are people and there are choirs that sing:---'HE is Risen and Hallelujah, and in that same church there are ministers who don't even know that He is the Messiah, but you see we get victory today in spite of this because all Christendom sings, because of the history of this event. For this event is one of the most unchallengeable facts of history and 500----or 520 and even 7000 people saw the Christ after HIS Resurrection, and this is also on record.
Now; there is one thing that we would have you to remember, and that is that this resurrected body of The Christ ate fish with his disciples. There is reality in this Resurrection, but some will say, how did he pass through the walls? Remember HE did that even before his crucifixion. HE did that when the Jews tried to kill him in the Treasury of the Temple. That is a knowledge that he possessed and which He never laid aside. That is a knowledge that relates to the whole organization of a physical universe in the field of electronics. Positive and negative units of electricity, wave lengths of energy and power are used, and the day is going to come when this knowledge is going to come back to you and there will be no substance which will be a barrier to your passing through. The speed and the acceleration of the electrons will be at the command of the conscious spirit.
We want you to know that at this hour the disciples were filled with wonder, and amazement, but they bare testimony to the most glorious spectacle --this the resurrection of The CHRIST. There can be no doubt that now all fear should have
passed from every Christian throughout the world. Theologians from time to time have obscured this knowledge, and there have been some things that were carried through in the fullness of truth that have not caught the fullness of YAHWEH'S promise, but in the hour that we live, knowledge is to be released, all things are to be brought to our remembrance and God's spirit is going to make every secret thing known. And you are going to know that the last enemy to be put down is death. No longer will it have power over you, for it is already powerless to hold your soul within any confine. It is actually powerless over you today if the spirit could comprehend the fullness in understanding the completion of what Christ has said:--"For the wages of sin is death, and he who is dead is free from sin." Only as you continue to give, consent has death power over you. For you can say with the Apostle Paul ---"Absent from this body is present with the LORD.” In the plane of spirit you cannot be held prisoner anymore, or at any time, so don't let anyone come along ever again and try to frighten you with perdition, or try to tell you that there is Satanic power that can hold your soul in Prison, for you have been set free--for all times. Don't let anyone try to put condemnation back on you, for Jesus has set you free, and does not condemn, for HE paid the price for all times. He calls you to the marvelous walk of Sonship in the Majesty of the Glory of HIS Grace, that you might in saying:---"Our Father which art in heaven"--be able to lift your face heavenward without fear. For you can look HIM in the face because HE said:---'I paid the price for all of you---I finished it----I set you free.'
You please God better by accepting the invocation of His righteousness than if you walk cast down after so great a victory, and out of this comes the Mighty triumph of His church--which is the spiritual center of His kingdom.
Oh! His enemies would still like to crucify the Christian civilization again. They would like to destroy this great pattern of life and hope, this great civilizing influence in the earth. But we tell you that there will never be a consummated crucifixion of the Kingdom, for the Kingdom is going to be empowered with greater light and greater glory than the world has ever seen. That light is going to outshine darkness, it is going to sweep communism off the face of the earth. It is going to overthrow all the forces of darkness who shall be taken out to their own area. And the world shall know and they shall behold the voices of the people of the earth who will be singing one great and mighty anthem to the praise of the MOST HIGH. For the day is going to come and you are going to see it, when they will sing--in the heavens and in the earth, and in the nethermost world, the Praises----TO YAHSHUA----THE CHRIST----THE KING----For My Redeemer liveth.
