Fire, Fire EverywhereI just finished an 11-part teaching series in which I shared a 6,000 year overview of Satan's plan to set up such an acceptance of the antichrist at the end of the age. My last talk summarized the spiritual setup for the acceptance and showed that the final phases of his plan are now being put into effect. Six thousand years of spiritual manipulation was seen to come to a head in that talk. The means being used to set up the public acceptance of the antichrist is LOVE, sometimes described as the fire of the Holy Spirit. That fiery love is the foundation of a new unity consciousness that is being brought about through New Age doctrines centered on spiritual fire, a fire which has already burned its way into the Church. It is in the fire of the New Age that this unity will become reality in the lives of millions, both within and without the Church.
The Origins Of The New Age Doctrine Of FireI want to put some pieces together in the simplest way I can that will give us a picture of what is happening on a SPIRITUAL LEVEL concerning the fire in the Church we have been hearing about. The "Christian" version is nothing less than the New Age version in Christian terms, and the result in both philosophies is the same: the inflaming of people in their spirit with spiritual fire. We are all familiar with titles of conferences in the "Christian revival" such as "Fire & Reign," "Catch The Fire," and "Fire & Passion." For the New Age view, I will use the teachings of Share International, the promoters of Lord Maitreya, and Elizabeth Claire Prophet and her Ascension Research Center, to whom Share International links on the Internet. The Ascension Research Center promotes research into the Ascension Flame, which they say became the standard of transformation established when Jesus ascended to the Father (Tom Miller's painting illustrating the Ascension Flame; Copyright © 1979 Kali Productions, Box 5000, Livingston, MT 59047-5000):
These two major New Age organizations promote the coming of the New Age Christ and the preparation for that Christ through a global consciousness of unity based on FIERY LOVE. Their doctrines go like this:
The Cosmic Christ is the "Sun," a spiritual being, the reality behind the Great Central Sun in our solar system. In other words, the "Sun" brought forth the Great Central Sun as a way of relating who "he" is.
The Cosmic Christ is also called the Word. The idea here is that everything was created by The Cosmic Christ, the Word, and everything that was created was created with a core of fire, including humanity.(1) It is believed that every human has within himself "a spark" of divinity which is the seed of transformation to godhood realization, with Jesus being the Model or Pattern because he showed complete transformation can be accomplished.
Who is The Cosmic Christ, the "Sun" behind the Great Central Sun?New Age material says it is Lord Maitreya, the New Age Christ. Here are a few beliefs about him:
This last quote is very important to the deception regarding fire we are experiencing in the Church. Look at this comparison:
- "Holding the office of Cosmic Christ, beloved Lord Maitreya demonstrates the Cosmic Consciousness of the Christ to our evolving races of humanity in all areas of life on our earth, and the universality of the Christ throughout our cosmos. . . ."
In simple terms, Maitreya demonstrates the unity of all things. The next belief is this:
- "The Name 'Maitreya' means 'Lord of Love' . . . . [Maitreya's] Divine Quality [is] Love."
- "Beloved Maitreya" enfolded Jesus in His Cosmic Flame to assist Jesus in manifesting the Christ Consciousness."(2)
MAITREYA = Love + Cosmic Flame + demonstration of Cosmic Consciousness (unity) in humanity
JESUS IN THE REVIVAL = Love + Fire + unity consciousness
So Maitreya means, "Cosmic Flame of Love," and it his flaming love that is the power to manifest the Christ consciousness or unity of all things. Let's recap this, along with some additional points:
POINT 1: Maitreya is the "Sun," the Cosmic Flame of Love, who DEMONSTRATES a Cosmic or Global Consciousness through Jesus.
POINT 2: Beloved Maitreya enfolded Jesus in His Cosmic Flame to assist Jesus in manifesting the Christ Consciousness in his ascension. The Church's Manifest Sons doctrine complements this New Age doctrine with the idea that Jesus was the Pattern Son, who is now the model for the transformation in the "revival."
POINT 3: Because Jesus was enfolded with the Cosmic Flame to demonstrate in corporate humanity the fire of love, we have the connection between the spirits of Catholicism and the New Age Christ and his organizations.
The Jesus Of Catholicism: The Sacred HeartHow is the Jesus of Catholicism promoted today? He is promoted as the Sacred Heart, who is experienced in the Eucharist and various other devotions. Compare the following description of the Sacred Heart as given in the initial revelations with my descriptions of Maitreya. Notice the fire of love based on the fire of the sun and the Eucharist, which is adored in reparation to the Sacred Heart. It is the Heart of Jesus which supposedly contains this fire which is released through adoration of the Eucharist or reception of the Eucharist itself. Read the words of St. Margaret Mary in the 1600's and the description of her experience that laid the foundation for the devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:
"On the First Friday of each month, the above-mentioned grace connected with the pain in my side was renewed in the following manner: the Sacred Heart was represented to me as a resplendent sun, the burning rays of which fell vertically upon my heart, which was inflamed with a fire so fervid that it seemed as if it would reduce me to ashes. . . . On one occasion, while the Blessed Sacrament was exposed, feeling wholly withdrawn within myself by an extraordinary recollection of all my senses and powers, Jesus Christ, my sweet Master, presented Himself to me, all resplendent with glory, His Five Wounds shining like so many suns. Flames issued from every part of His Sacred Humanity, especially from His Adorable Breast, which resembled an open furnace and disclosed to me His most loving and most amiable Heart, which was the living source of these flames. It was then that He made known to me the ineffable marvels of His pure love and showed me to what an excess He had loved men, from whom He received only ingratitude and contempt."(3)This is not the Christian Jesus, but describes Jesus as he would be if enfolded with the Cosmic Flame of Maitreya. This is a Jesus of fiery love, totally transformed in the Ascension Flame. This becomes even more evident when we look at the end-time prophecy given to St. Gertrude in the 1300's:
"On the Feast of St. John the Evangelist, the author of the Gospel of the same name, St. Gertrude had a vision of Our Lord, during which she was allowed to rest her head upon the Wound in His side. When she heard the beating of His Heart, she turned and asked St. John, who also was present, if he had heard the same on the night of the Last Supper, when he leaned upon the breast of Our Lord. And if so, why he never spoke of them in his Gospel. Remarkably, St. John replied that the revelation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was reserved for later times when the world, grown cold, would be in need of being rekindled in love."(4)
Two More Descriptions Of Lord Maitreya And JesusNow let's look at the next two points:
On Elizabeth Claire Prophet's Ascension Research Center Home Page (http://www.all-natural.com/jesus.html), we read this about the New Age Ascended Master, Jesus:
- Maitreya, The I AM Presence = The Father
- Maitreya as he relates to Jesus today in New Age doctrine
"Maitreya was formerly the World Teacher until January 1, 1956, when this Office in [the] Hierarchy was passed jointly to Jesus and Kuthumi."(5)What does it mean that Jesus is the World Teacher? According to the New Age definition it means this:
"World Teacher - revealing the individual Christ Self to all mankind and to show the works of the Father (the I AM Presence [Lord Maitreya]) that can be performed by His sons and daughters through the Flame of the individualized Christ Self (Higher Mental Body) of each one."(6)This is godhood realization. In the" revival," it is Christ coming to the Church before he comes for the Church. It is Christ incarnating in people by their evolving to maturity to become Manifest Sons.
The I AM Presence mentioned here is the Father aspect of God, as well as Maitreya:
"Jesus also called Lord Maitreya 'Father,' since He was both Teacher and Guru, and symbolized God the Father (the Mighty I AM Presence)."(7) Though confusing at times, the basic belief is this:"Great Initiator: Maitreya was the initiator of Jesus, when Jesus lived His final embodiment as the individualization of the Christ, as world savior and EXAMPLE of the Way, the Truth, and the Life."(8; emphasis mine).New Agers say Jesus passed through Six Degrees of Initiation into the New Age Hierarchy:
The symbolism of the 5th (resurrection) and 6th (ascension) initiations are considered to be teaching tools by the spiritual hierarchy (see the Ascension Flame on the left). Man can, they say, transform himself, and Jesus was the one who showed it can be done. The Maitreyan doctrine concerning Jesus says that Jesus is now a Master in the Spiritual Hierarchy, known as The Great Leader, The General, and The Wise Executive. For 640 years, he has been in a Syrian body, and is now in Rome. In charge of Jews and Christians in both the East and the West, his present purpose is to raise the Christian churches up as one by destroying their rivalries, and if invited, to lead a newly united Church. This exactly describes the activity of the "Jesus" we see operating in the Church today. Another purpose of the New Age Jesus is to resolve contradictions and misunderstandings of the teaching he gave when on earth 2000 years ago. Again, the resolution of contradictions is exactly what is happening in the drive for unity among Rome and the churches. In explanation of how Jesus relates to Maitreya, Maitreya is said to affect "Jesus" in two ways:
- Cross Experience
- Resurrection (symbolic; body raised by Maitreya)
- Ascension (symbolic; Ascension Flame)
1. He overshadowed Jesus:
"In fact, the title Christ does not refer to an individual at all. It is the name of a function in the Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom, that group of advanced beings who guide the evolution of humanity from behind the scenes. Whoever stands at the head of this Hierarchy automatically becomes the World Teacher, known in the East as the Bodhisattva, during the term of His office.On the next page are two pictures taken from the same home page, one of Maitreya and the other of the Sacred Heart, to support what I am sharing concerning Jesus and Maitreya:
"Maitreya, who embodies the energy we call the Christ Principle, has held that office for over two millennia, and in Palestine He manifested Himself as the Christ to inaugurate the Age of Pisces, then beginning. The method He used is called SPIRITUAL OVERSHADOWING, that is, His consciousness informed and guided the actions and teachings of His disciple Jesus. It was, therefore, the consciousness of the Christ, [meaning] Maitreya, which was seen and experienced by those around Jesus."(9)
This is the same Jesus used by Catholicism, entitled, "Divine Mercy":
2. Maitreya engulfed Jesus in the Ascension Flame:
"Beloved Maitreya" enfolded Jesus in His Cosmic Flame to assist Jesus in manifesting the Christ Consciousness."(10)Let me again summarize the points I have made. Maitreya is "the Father," the Cosmic Flame of Love who engulfed Jesus in the Ascension Flame in his 6th initiation. Maitreya, through the ascended Jesus, now wants to manifest, by Jesus, a unity consciousness in all things. That this is the same spirit operating in the New Age and Catholicism can be demonstrated in an examination of the Cosmic Flame. In Catholic circles, we have the sun-like flaming heart of Jesus, known as the Sacred Heart. This Jesus united his heart with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Catholic prophecy has now announced that we are now living in the age of the Two Hearts, which are two flaming hearts, shown below:
Another way of expressing these images in Catholicism is through pictures of the Sacred Heart (Jesus) and the Immaculate Heart (Mary):
In the New Age, as in the Roman Church, we find the same thing. The male/female aspects of "God" are included in both belief systems. In Catholicism, an adherent makes himself one with Mary for purification, who then leads him to oneness with the Sacred Heart, because her heart and his heart are one. In the New Age, this male/female principle is also evident, which we will discuss in a minute.
New Age Belief About MaryThe New Age Ascension Research Center says this in support of Marian appearances:
"Mother Mary is still working to uplift mass consciousness and return the people to God. Her serenely calm, youthful image has appeared to countless thousands of people over the last 2000 years. Through centuries of male domination, Mother Mary filled deep human needs for a feminine aspect of God. The Catholic Church Fathers have only grudgingly acknowledged some of her appearances at Lourdes, France, Fatima, Portugal, and Zeitoun, Egypt. Devotion to Mary has always begun in the hearts of the common people. Only much later has it been officially accepted as cannon by the hierarchy of the church.
"Mary has accepted the responsibility of predicting future catastrophes if mankind does not change its mind and attitude. She appears to people all over the world trying to get their attention away from materiality and back to faith in God. Annie Kirkwood's 'Mary's Messages to the World' is one example of Mary appearing to an ordinary person who is not even a Catholic and has had no prior connection to such things"(11)
Elohim And The Twin FlamesLord Maitreya: "Known as 'LORD God' in Eden, Guru of twin flames" (Lord Maitreya, http://www.all-natural.com/maitreya.html Ascension Research Center). Remembering that New Agers believe that Mary "filled deep human needs for a feminine aspect of God" in Catholicism, the New Age explains the doctrine of the Twin Flames this way:
"ELOHIM" is a Hebrew word meaning 'God' - used 2,500 times in the Old Testament. It is a uni-plural noun that refers to the Twin Flames of the Godhead - the 'Divine Us' Who 'in the beginning' (Gen. 1:1) created male and female in Their image and likeness (Gen. 1:26, 27).The two hearts shown below have now evolved into what is called the "United Hearts" of "Holy Love." There is no real difference between Jesus' and Mary's "United Hearts" engulfed in flames and the New Age god of "Twin Flames":
The Elohim embody the Light of the Father-Mother God, whom They personify on each of the Seven Rays. "These SEVEN SETS OF TWIN GOD-FLAMES are the 'Seven Spirits of God' referred to in Revelation 1:4; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6."(12)
This unity is no different than Father/Mother God of the New Age philosophy. The Holy Spirit is said to have seven emanations of flaming fiery love, called "the Elohim," and each of those flames is "composed" of the Father/Mother God:
(Came in cloven tongues at Pentecost)
The Seven Emansaitons Of The Spirit:
Blue - Gold Yellow - Pink - White - Emerald Green - Purple/Green - Violet Flames
(One set of flames = Father-Mother God)(13)
The Fire Of The Holy SpiritIt is important to note that some in the Church and in the New Age attribute the manifestations of the fire of "revival" to the Holy Spirit of God. Both have a male/female aspect. Following is an excerpt from one of the New Age home pages we have been quoting. As you read it, compare it with what we have heard concerning the Holy Spirit within the present "revival" in the Church. The similarities are obvious, even though the terminology is different:
"There are spiritual forces within us-within every single atom and cell, within the fire of our heart. If we would discover what these forces are, we would know how the fervent, white-hot heat of meditative love can burst that atom of Self and release the energy that has framed the worlds, that has created an uncreated Void. It can begin a revolution of light. And it can make the imminent Aquarian age truly an era of peace and enlightenment. "The cycles of God Self-awareness move two- thousand-year periods. In each two-thousand-year cycle, there's a dawning of a great light. In the age of Aries, the Judaic tradition taught us to understand God the Father, the personal God individualized in what Moses experienced as the I AM THAT I AM.The Violet Flame of St. Germain is the Flame of Freedom that will supposedly transform humanity. As the last of the seven flames of the "Holy Spirit," it too consists of the Father-Mother god that manifests as the Twin Flames. This is the "Holy Spirit" that will fill the apostate Church in the year 2000, under the guise of the United Hearts of Jesus (Sacred Heart) and Mary (Immaculate Heart). It is not the Jesus Christ of Christianity, but the false Jesus of Eden, who promised humanity, "ye shall be as gods."
"The next two-thousand-year period, marked by the coming of the avatar Jesus Christ, was the Piscean dispensation intended to give us the understanding of God as Son.
"And so through reincarnation, lifetime after lifetime we were intended to put on the consciousness of God the Father and God the Son. Now as we feel the winds of the Aquarian age, we find the energy of the Holy Spirit upon us in many ways. New sounds, new rhythms, new science, new technology-and, above all, a new freedom.
"The Aquarian age is the moment of understanding energy and its conquest in time and space through the perfect polarity of the masculine and feminine principles of the universe-Spirit ('heaven') / Matter ('earth'). The "cloven tongues" of fire that sat upon each of the disciples on the day of Pentecost are these 'twin flames' of the Father/Mother God which give to us the impact, the energy, the control of creative flow.
"This descent of the Holy Spirit is a tremendous force. It is intense love. And this love-action is transmutative-that is, when this energy flows through us it is able to re-create us after the image of the Real Self.
"Just as Jesus stood as the open door to the attainment of the Christ consciousness in the two-thousand-year Piscean cycle, so the Aquarian master Saint Germain comes today to initiate us on the path of soul liberation through the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit which we call the violet flame.
"The violet flame is the energy of freedom. People who are free have the violet light vibrating in their auras-unmistakably. The violet flame is also an energy of mercy and forgiveness. And transmutation.
"Transmutation means to change - to alter in form, appearance, or nature. The term was used by medieval alchemists who attempted to transmute base metals into gold, separating the 'subtle' from the 'gross' by means of heat.
"That is precisely what the energy of the Holy Spirit does. It is a tangible emanation of spiritual fire that actually "melts" the "elements" of our subconscious "with fervent heat" - as the Bible says.
"This is the way to undo psychological problems, emotional hang-ups, records of the past. We don't have to go back through hypnosis or regression. Send the love-fire of the Holy Spirit through - and it all begins to change by the alchemy of the violet transmuting flame.
"The scientific use of the violet flame in this age has been made possible by Saint Germain, who offered the violet flame garnered within his own heart (over many thousands of years) as a momentum of light-energy so that we could experiment with the alchemy of self-transformation through the sacred fire. . . . God is the cloven tongues of fire-Spirit/Matter. . . ."(14)
The Great InvocationOne last point I want to make is about the Great Invocation, the "Our Father" of the New Age movement. It is explained as follows http://www.inetport.com/~one/givis.htmlThe Great Invocation is a world prayer, translated into over 50 languages & dialects. It is an instrument of power to aid the Plan of God find full expression on Earth. To use it is an act of service to humanity & the Christ -- the World Teacher.Also on this page are notes for visualization:
Many believe in a World Teacher, knowing him under such names as the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Messiah, & the Kalki Avatar. By means of invocation, prayer & meditation divine energies can be released and brought into activity. Men and women of goodwill of many faiths and nations can join together in world service, bringing spiritual value & strength to a troubled world. Men & women have the power, through focused, united invocation, to affect world events. Knowledge of this fact, scientifically applied, can be one of the great liberating factors within humanity.
It is sponsored by no group or sect. We urge you to use it and encourage others to do so on behalf of humanity.
No one can use this Invocation or prayer for illumination and for love without causing powerful changes in attitudes and life intention.
The Great Invocation (with visualization notes [in parenthesis])
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
(see golden light streaming from the Buddha into the minds of people everywhere)
Let Light descend on Earth.
(see beams of white light from the sun saturating the Earth)
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
(see rose colored Christ light entering the hearts of people everywhere)
May Christ return to Earth.
(Remember that this refers to the Hierarchy as a whole)
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men --
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
(Brilliant beams of light entering the world from Shamballa,
galvanizing mankind into spiritual action)
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
This New Age "Our Father" is centered in the Sun as the source of the renewal of the earth by the coming of the hierarchy through meditation, but this fits very appropriately to the original revelations of the Sacred Heart of fire and love and, of course, Maitreya. The streaming of light rays to the earth and received through meditation are also appropriate when you consider Catholicism's Jesus as "Divine Mercy," who is the Sacred Heart. This is exactly as he is depicted, and one of the Maitreyan home pages has Maitreya's picture along with that of the Sacred Heart pictured as "Divine Mercy" with rays streaming downward from his heart (shown above). Elizabeth Claire Prophet also uses this same picture of the Sacred Heart in her St. Germain doctrines, who issues forth violet rays.
This page goes on to says,When you say the first line: "From the point of Light...", visualize (or think of, if you cannot visualize Him) the Buddha, the Embodiment of Light or Wisdom on the planet. Visualize Him sitting in the lotus posture, saffron robe over one shoulder, hand raised in blessing, and see emanating from the heart center, the ajna center, (between the eyebrows), and the upraised hand of the Buddha, a brilliant golden light. See this light enter the minds of men and women everywhere.There we have it: Maitreya, Jesus, Mother Mary - all New Age spirits bringing about the greatest deception to ever hit the Church. The New Age and Catholicism are centered in the worship of the sun, and the Sun god is coming to humanity in many different forms, but "he" is coming because humanity is opening doors for him. It doesn't really matter what these spirits call themselves. These are all spirits not of God who masquerade as ones sent from heaven, bent on deceiving the whole world into following Satan so that he may receive global worship. Hold on to our Lord Jesus Christ and His word, brothers and sisters, because the time is indeed short.
When you say the line: "Let light descend on Earth," visualize the sun, the physical sun, and see emanating from it beams of white light. See this light enter and saturate the Earth.
When you say: "From the point of Love...", visualize the Christ (the Embodiment of Love), however you see Him. A suggested way is to see Him standing at the head of an inverted Y-shaped table, standing, arms raised in blessing, and see emanating from the heart center and the upraised hands of the Christ, a brilliant rose-colored light (not red). Visualize this rose light entering the hearts of men and women everywhere.
When you say the line, "May Christ return to Earth," remember that this refers to the Hierarchy as a whole and not only to the Christ. He is the heart center of the Hierarchy, and although He is now among us, the remainder of the Hierarchy (that part of it which will externalize slowly, over the years) still requires to be invoked; the magnetic conduit for Their descent has still to be maintained.
When you say: "From the center where the Will of God is known," which is Shamballa, visualize a great sphere of white light. (You can place it, mentally, in the Gobi desert, where it is, on the two highest of the four etheric planes. One day, when mankind has developed etheric vision, which it will in the coming age, this center will be seen and known, as many other etheric centers will be seen and known.) Streaming from this sphere of brilliant light, visualize beams of light entering the world, galvanizing mankind into spiritual action.
Do this with focused thought and intention, your attention fixed on the ajna center between the eyebrows. In this way you form a telepathic conduit between yourselves and Hierarchy. Through that conduit the energies thus invoked can flow.
