Sanat Kumara Rescued Terra
The adage that “Truth is stranger than fiction” is sometimes very accurate but the version I like better is: “Truth tops fiction because it is real.” This is my perspective as I share the story of how Sanat Kumara rescued Terra.
Sanat Kumara is an ascended master and he is integrally linked with Terra because of his sacrifice on behalf of the souls on Terra and the continued existence of the planet itself. If ever there were an epic story, this is it.
Relatively few people have even heard the name “Sanat Kumara” because when he has interacted with the various religions and cultures of the world he has been known by different names. And, it was a very long time ago that he began helping Terra. In Sanskrit, “Sanat Kumara” means “always a youth.”
Each of the names below refers to Sanat Kumara and a time when he has served as a representative of the Godhead to a given culture in earth's history, usually working with a spiritually qualified person, or embodying himself to bring his blessing, sponsorship, and teaching of enlightenment to a people. He has been acknowledged and honored in the cultures of Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Christianity. And the truth is that Sanat Kumara is the one that sent each avatar that initiated each of the six major religions on Terra.
Ancient of Days – In the Old Testament, Sanat Kumara is referred to as the “Ancient of Days” (Daniel 7). In Daniel’s vision, the Ancient of Days is the key figure that gives a “kingdom of everlasting dominion” to “the Son of man,” which is the name used in the Old Testament for the Christ figure and the term Jesus used when referring to his own role.
Karttikeya is a significant ancient diety in Hinduism traceable to the Vedas, which are the oldest Hindu scriptures that were written down sometime in the period 1,500 – 1,000 BC, although they existed as oral traditions much earlier. Karttikeya, also known as Skanda and Murugan in different regions, is worshipped in Southern India, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia as an ever-youthful, philosopher-warrior that leads in the fight against ignorance. The photo at the left shows how Karttikeya is still highly regarded and honored today by many people in Malaysia. His statue, over 128 feet tall, is located at a shrine at the Batu Caves.
Ahura Mazda – This name means “Wisdom Lord” and according to the Encyclopedia Britannica it is the name of the supreme God worshipped in Zoroastrianism, the religious system of the Persian prophet Zarathustra (approx. 1,000 BC). Years after he left home and family to search for truth in ancient Persia, Zarathustra (Zoroaster in the Greek) was led by a luminous being to come face to face with Ahura Mazda and other deities.
Over time, he was taught the teachings of love-wisdom that included the law of karma, reincarnation, and the coming of the days when evil would be vanquished. He brought this truth to his countrymen as the messenger of Ahura Mazda.
Zoroastrianism became a major spiritual force in Persia by 700 BC and later become the state religion. While Zoroastrianism has faded as a major religion in the world, some of its precepts are reflected in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam including the belief that the Spirit of God may appear as sacred fire.
Dipamkara – This was an incarnation of Sanat Kumara. In the Buddhist tradition, Dipamkara was a buddha in ancient times, millions of years ago (yes, millions of years!). That timing actually fits nicely with the story of Sanat Kumara that follows below.
Dipamkara may have been a “first” or at least “early” buddha that preceded 24 other buddhas culminating in the birth and life of Gautama Buddha, the buddha we are most familiar with who lived about 563 BC. The ascended master Gautama Buddha has verified the buddhist legend concerning his life as a seeker/ascetic named Sumedha who lived at the time of the buddha Dipamkara.
One day as Dipamkara and his procession were passing through the local area, Sumedha prostrated himself in the mud so that the buddha may pass over. Taking note of Sumedha’s sacrifice, Dipamkara stopped, recognized this soul, and prophesized his buddhahood in a distant life, as it did come to pass.
Looking to the ancient past – “Except you become as a little child”
As we move into the next section, I want to remind you of Jesus’ statement, “Except you become as a little child, you cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.” The divine reality of God is very different from the world we see and so what we are used to believing and hanging onto as reality in our material world is almost completely fabricated and really a counterfeit of God’s creation. I’m not talking about the natural environment of earth, seas, sky, forests and grasslands; these are a part of God’s creation. I’m talking about the man-made environment including financial, commercial, social, and cultural systems and all their attendant complexity, chaos, inequity, and conflict.
One way to put it is that our souls are at odds with the world as it is because the world is synthetic and contrived and does not reflect the beauty and perfection that God intended. This being true, in order to start to peel back the falsity of the world and actually see what God is capable of manifesting in our lives, we have to be willing to enter into this “little child” consciousness that will enable us to embrace God’s reality that is at the core of Life. And this means we have to be willing to hear, consider, and begin to embrace ideas and facts that may not be familiar at all to our outer minds or may even be completely at odds with what we have been taught to be true.
Heaven is Organized
Another reason I want to bring to you the story of Sanat Kumara is because it opens wide our awareness of the profound activity that goes on continuously in heaven to help raise our souls and save a planet and a people from destruction engineered by the fallen ones. The good that occurs on this planet is initiated and strongly supported by forces of light that exist as a “hierarchy” in heaven. As I’ve mentioned before, the ascended masters in heaven are highly organized and proactive in their determination to help secure a better future for all and ultimately the victory of the planet itself. Examples follow, starting with the story of Sanat Kumara, that show how God structures and coordinates divine assistance to Terra.
Very ancient darkness leads to de-evolution of mankind to caveman stage
As described in the tab “Darkness Comes to Terra,” there has been no shortage of virulent forces on Terra made up of fallen angels, other individuals that considered themselves equal to or superior to God, and rebellious, technologically advanced lifestreams from other systems of worlds that traveled to Terra and claimed it as their playground. These have amalgamated into the force of antichrist found on this planet and others and are the very same forces trying to overthrow freedom and liberty in the 21st century.
For a very long time, mankind has experienced cycles of golden ages sponsored by heaven followed by the descent into depravity and darkness under the influence of the forces of evil. As the ascended master Lady Master Meta has said: “For civilizations upon this planet have been rising and falling for longer than you realize, which is recorded in the strata of the rock.”
The ascended masters have not given a blow by blow record of these ancient events, probably to save us from undue burden. Knowing more could be burdensome because it is true that when knowledge of certain unfortunate events is revealed it also means that the karma associated with the events has to be dealt with. So, it is likely we are being spared from “knowing too much for our own good.”
Nevertheless, the following scenario can be surmised based on information that has been given by the ascended masters even though we don’t have all the details.
In the far distant past, prior to the fall of Adam and Eve and the sinking of Lemuria, there was a period of profound darkness upon the earth. Based on information from the messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet, this period was at least 2.5 million years ago. Taking the teaching from Lady Master Meta already described in the “Darkness Comes to Terra” page into account, the darkness of that time was likely due to fascination and experimentation with “creating and maintaining an identity apart from God” by the people as they became aware of such behavior on other systems of worlds.
As described earlier, this kind of consciousness ultimately results in a downward spiral where individuals gradually and then in an accelerated way lose contact with their Higher Self. This process of decline may proceed over hundreds and then thousands of years until the evolutions completely forget their God Source. In this instance, the people embodied at the time descended to the level of caveman, walking around nearly on all fours and eventually even losing the intelligence to be able to use physical fire for heating and cooking.
The threefold flame and God Presence are described on "The Chart of Your Divine Self” page.
A Cosmic Council Declared the Dissolution of Terra as a Platform of Soul Evolution
As radical as it may sound, during this ancient period, not a single soul on Terra was giving adoration to God. A Cosmic Council with oversight of such matters voted to “roll up Terra as a scroll” and cancel out the planet as a place of soul evolution. The planet was no longer fulfilling the purpose for which it had been created.
The fact that this happened in the distant history of Terra should give us pause today to reconsider our relationship to God and whether we as a people, surfeited in our technology and entertainment and self-satisfied with all of our doings and accomplishments, are really much different than those cavemen and women if we neglect to give thanks to God for the blessings we receive and the opportunities we have. And more than just give thanks, heaven is waiting for each individual to pursue a living relationship with their own God Presence.
The only option allowed by this Cosmic Council that would forestall the elimination of Terra would be the intercession of a being of great light who would be willing to go to Terra to hold the flame of God for all of its evolutions until they began to worship their God Presence and threefold flame again.
Sanat Kumara Volunteered to Hold the Balance of Light for the Evolutions of Terra
The being of great light that interceded for Terra was Sanat Kumara, the hierarch of Venus (yes, the planet Venus). His attainment was more than sufficient to enable him to hold the spiritual balance through his threefold flame for every soul on Terra. And the mission required him to be present on Terra itself, not accomplishing the work from a distance.
So began the epic story of the coming of Sanat Kumara to Terra long ago. Because of his great love and the love of the people of Venus for their hierarch, 144,000 of the citizens of Venus elected to accompany him in this rescue mission through what amounted to being self-exiled on Terra until the evolutions here, shrouded in darkness as they were, could be quickened through gradual steps of radiating love and enlightenment into the population. Included in the entourage that came was his own daughter Lady Master Meta, two of his six brothers also known as “Kumaras” and other key souls who proved to be essential in raising the people of Terra through an effort that continues into the modern era.
In 1979, Sanat Kumara released the telling of the story of his coming to Terra in a Pearl of Wisdom, a copyrighted publication of The Summit Lighthouse. The following content is that story along with other information about Venus. This material can be found in the Summit Lighthouse Ascended Master Free Encyclopedia at: http://encyclopedia.summitlighthouse.org under the subjects “Sanat Kumara and Lady Master Venus,’ “Seven holy Kumaras” and “Venus (the planet).”
I hope you experience something of the majesty and grace of this ascended master and sense the degree of sacrifice he was willing to make for us as he tells the story.
The ascended masters explain that the archeological records of fossil remains of caveman come from this and other epochs where man declined to a low level of existence from a much higher previous state. Yes, this turns much of archeology on its head, because caveman came about through a planetary decline rather than man evolving from primitive life forms up to the caveman level and beyond as evolutionary theory proposes.
The causative factor of the decline in consciousness was the direct result of mankind failing to give adoration to the threefold flame in their hearts and to their God Presence. By becoming nearly as dense as the beasts of the earth, they could no longer adore something they had forgotten.

This image may be painful to look at considering it portrays a state of consciousness that perhaps we ourselves or at least our ancestors embodied in the distant past because of the departure from God's laws. The photo is of a model of the face of a caveman reconstructed by American scientists that is in exhibition at the New York National History Museum in New York City. The lifelike model is remarkable because it presents an extraordinary posture and expression, almost as if the caveman is sensing and searching for something higher than himself. Is he aware of his lost identity?
“Sanat Kumara describes this momentous event in cosmic history:
“You call me Sanat Kumara, and you know me as the one who stood before the cosmic council known as the Council of the One Hundred and Forty and Four. You know me because you were witnesses to my plea made for and on behalf of the evolutions of earth who no longer knew the presence of the Lamb, who by disobedience were cut off from the living Guru. You know me as the one who volunteered to embody the threefold flame within the earth unto the evolutions evolving within the seven planes of being—fire, air, water and earth.
“The Cosmic Council had decreed the dissolution of earth and her evolutions because the souls of her children no longer worshiped the Trinity in the threefold flame of life burning upon the altar of the heart. They had become the sheep gone astray. Their attention fixed upon the outer manifestation, they had willfully, ignorantly abandoned the inner walk with God....
“Thus the light of the temples had gone out, and the purpose to which God had created man—to be the temple of the living God—was no longer being fulfilled. One and all were the living dead, a Matter vessel without an ensouling light, an empty shell. Nowhere on earth was there a mystery school—not a chela, not a guru, no initiates of the path of initiation unto Christhood.
“The hour of the judgment had come, and the one seated upon the throne in the center of the twelve times twelve hierarchies of light had pronounced the word that was the unanimous consensus of all: Let earth and her evolutions be rolled up as a scroll and lit as a taper of the sacred fire. Let all energies misqualified be returned to the Great Central Sun for repolarization. Let energy misused be realigned and recharged with the light of Alpha and Omega, once again to be infused by the Creator within the ongoing creation of worlds without end.
“The requirement of the Law for the saving of Terra? It was that one who should qualify as the embodied Guru, the Lamb, should be present in the physical octave to hold the balance and to keep the threefold flame of life for and on behalf of every living soul. It is the Law of the One that the meditation of the one upon the Eternal Christos may count for the many until the many once again become accountable for their words and their works and can begin to bear the burden of their light as well as the karma of their relative good and evil.
“I chose to be that one. I volunteered to be a flaming son of righteousness unto earth and her evolutions.
“After considerable deliberation, the Cosmic Council and the Nameless One gave their approval of my petition, and the dispensation for a new divine plan for earth and her evolutions came into being....
“Thus I knelt before the great white throne of the Nameless One and he said unto me, “My son, Sanat Kumara, thou shalt sit upon the great white throne before the evolutions of earth. Thou shalt be to them the LORD God in the highest. Verily, thou shalt be the highest manifestation of the Deity that shall be given unto them until, through the path of initiation, their souls shall rise to thy throne of awareness and stand before thee in praise of the I AM THAT I AM which thou art. In that day when they shall rise up and say, ‘Blessing and honour and glory and power be unto him that sitteth upon the throne and unto the Lamb for ever and ever’—behold, their redemption draweth nigh.”
“And he said unto me, “Thus unto the evolutions of earth thou shalt be Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the I AM THAT I AM, which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.” And he placed upon me his mantle of sponsorship of the Father unto the Son, which would become in me his sponsorship of a lifewave that he now made my own. It was a trust. It was the initiation of the Father in the Son....
“And the Council of the One Hundred and Forty and Four, forming a single solar ring around the great white throne, intoned the Word with the great beings of light, forming the inner circle round about the throne and saying, “Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” And I heard the echo of their chant of the “Holy, holy, holy” all the way home to the morning star, to my twin flame whom you know as Venus, and to the sons and daughters of the Love Star.
“Winged messengers of light had announced my coming and the disposition of the Cosmic Council and the dispensation granted. The six—my brothers, the holy Kumaras, who sustain with me the seven flames of the seven rays—Mighty Victory and his legions, our daughter Meta, and many servant sons and daughters whom you know today as the ascended masters welcomed me in a grand reception. That evening, the joy of opportunity was mingled with the sorrow that the sense of separation brings. I had chosen a voluntary exile upon a dark star. And though it was destined to be Freedom’s Star, all knew it would be for me a long dark night of the soul.
“Then all at once from the valleys and the mountains there appeared a great gathering of my children. It was the souls of the hundred and forty and four thousand approaching our palace of light. They spiraled nearer and nearer as twelve companies singing the song of freedom, of love and of victory. Their mighty chorusing echoed throughout elemental life, and angelic choirs hovered nigh. As we watched from the balcony, Venus and I, we saw the thirteenth company robed in white. It was the royal priesthood of the Order of the Melchizedek, the anointed ones who kept the flame and the Law in the center of this hierarchical unit.
“When all of their numbers had assembled, ring upon ring upon ring surrounding our home, and their hymn of praise and adoration to me was concluded, their spokesman stood before the balcony to address us on behalf of the great multitude. It was the soul of the one you know and love today as the Lord of the World, Gautama Buddha. And he addressed us, saying, “O Ancient of Days, we have heard of the covenant that God hath made with thee this day and of thy commitment to keep the flame of life until some among earth’s evolutions should be quickened and once again renew their vow to be bearers of the flame. O Ancient of Days, thou art to us our Guru, our very life, our God. We will not leave thee comfortless. We will go with thee. We will not leave thee for one moment without the ring upon ring of our chelaship. We will come to earth. We will prepare the way. We will keep the flame in thy name.”
“And so as the LORD God directed me, I chose from among them four hundred servant sons and daughters who would precede the hundred and forty and four thousand to prepare for their coming. For though they knew the darkness of the darkest star, in reality they did not know, as I knew, the real meaning of the sacrifice that they now were offering to make in the name of their Guru.
“We wept in joy, Venus and I and all of the hundred and forty and four thousand. And the tears that flowed on that memorable evening burned as the living sacred fire flowing as the water of life from the great white throne and the Cosmic Council, our sponsors.”
Here is additional information about the planet Venus from the TSL Encyclopedia.
Venus is known to be the training ground for avatars who have been sent not only to earth but to the other planetary bodies infiltrated by the Luciferians. This is the home of Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha, Lord Maitreya, John the Baptist, Enoch and the entire hierarchy of Brahmanism, Hinduism, Lemurian and pre-Lemurian avatars. All of these have come through the great mystery schools of Venus and the halls and temples of the seven holy Kumaras.
The planet Venus, whose given name is Hesper, is known as both the Evening Star and the Morning Star depending on where it appears prominently in the sky at different times of the year. Hesper has a strong relationship with the people of Terra, our earth.
Added note: Brahmanism was the Vedic precursor to Hinduism that included the understanding of Brahman as the ultimate, undifferentiated one God, the understanding of divine beings (gods) that were manifestations or incarnations of the one God, and the understanding of dharma, karma, and Samsara (the cycle of birth and rebirth due to entrapment in maya and illusion).
“The civilization and lifewaves of the planet Venus have long ago attained to the enlightenment and peace of a golden age. Their consciousness and life evolution exist in another dimension of the physical plane corresponding to the etheric octave. Many of the most enlightened among earth’s evolutions—inventors, artists, and seers—have come to earth from this higher plane of consciousness to transfer the blessings of God-dominion to the lifewaves of our planet.
In a dictation from Sanat Kumara and his twin flame Lady Master Venus, these masters gave the following information about our tie to Venus:
“We … greet you from this altar in the joy of the love of Venus, the morning and the evening star, the star of your first breath and your last; for this home of light, beloved, is to you a place of abode, both while in embodiment and between incarnations.” Footnote 1
Physical Retreat Built for Sanat Kumara at Shambala
This information comes from the TSL Encyclopedia under the subject "Sanat Kumara." Material quoted verbatim appears in italics.
Prior to Sanat Kumara coming to Terra, four hundred members of an avant-garde troop were sent to Terra to build a magnificent physical retreat named “Shamballa” located on an island in the beautiful azure Gobi Sea which existed then in what is now present day Southern Mongolia and Northern China. The retreat and surrounding city that developed existed in the physical plane for many centuries. Eventually, for the protection of the retreat, it was withdrawn to the etheric plane and subsequently, with earth changes, the vast sea became the Gobi Desert.
Nevertheless, the etheric retreat continues to operate in the same place today.
There are many legends relating to the retreat of Shambala and the Gobi Sea. One ancient memory that continues to the present is the ritual of the Yule log after consciousness began to rise and mankind regained use of physical fire.
“The ancient custom of the Yule log has come down to us from the service rendered by Sanat Kumara who, each year, consecrated a focus of the sacred fire in the physical octaves. It became tradition for the people to come across many miles to take home a piece of the Yule log and to use it to light their fires through the coming twelve-month cycle. Thus, a focus of his physical flame was tangibly manifest in the dwelling places of the people of the earth, enabling them to have actual physical contact with a focus of the Lord of the World in their midst.”
Mankind Began the Climb Up the Mountain to Re-establish Their Rightful Relationship with God
It is shocking that mankind could have fallen so low to the level of caveman. Being created in the image of God, however, and the souls of men and women having previously experienced higher levels of consciousness and civilization, the return to grace did not occur at a slow evolutionary pace but at a divinely inspired and assisted pace.
We do not know all the details of events on Terra in the thousands of years after the coming of Sanat Kumara, but we do know that golden ages occurred after his coming, even before Lemuria. Details about his influence and sponsorship of avatars continue below.
Sanat Kumara remained on earth until 1956 when the mantle of light to hold the spiritual balance for every person on earth was passed to the ascended master Gautama Buddha. The name of the office for this role is “Lord of the World,” so Gautama Buddha became the Lord of the World for Terra at that time. Sanat Kumara and his twin flame Venus have visited Terra in recent years to bring additional spiritual blessings.
It is worth knowing that when you see a picture of a high buddha in meditation, the buddha is not removed into some detached state of bliss. In the case of Gautama Buddha, through his expanded consciousness this master maintains a point of spiritual contact, an actual thread of light that connects to every person on the planet to sustain their threefold flame.
Buddhas on the inner planes and the ascended level, such as the ascended lady master Kwan Yin with her focus in an etheric retreat in China, support and provide blessings to the people of God in all religions. Spiritual light of Mercy can be invoked from the heart of Kwan Yin through the mantra, OM MANI PADME HUM.
Calling Gautama Buddha a “Lord” is not a slight against the Lord, Jesus Christ. We need to get used to the reality of hierarchy in the cosmos. Just as Lord Maitreya and Gautama Buddha serve under the office of Sanat Kumara, Jesus serves in his office as the exemplar in the role of “Son of God.”
There is much more to learn about Jesus and his unique mission and, if you love him, you will find many additional reasons to love him even more as you learn about his lifestream and long term service to the Almighty as documented in the teachings of the ascended masters.
Further Introduction to Hierarchy: The Great White Brotherhood
As indicated in the story of Sanat Kumara, with his sacrificial exile on Terra a whole new divine plan was created for the planet. The first three root races on the planet successfully completed their missions and ascended into the Light. However, the fourth root race became distracted and then were turned away from their mission by darkness. Rather than terminate the planet because of the failure of the fourth stage of Plan A, the Almighty allowed for a Plan B to be led by Sanat Kumara.
We will carry forward with what is known about the transition of life on Terra after the fall of Lemuria and the rising on civilization on Atlantis and other areas of the globe in the next section. However, in this section I want to share more information about the spiritual hierarchy that exists on this planet and across the galaxies that works to insure the unfoldment of God Good on Terra.
We’ve already seen the example of the Cosmic Council as an element of hierarchy. This spiritual hierarchy assessed the failure of the fourth root race at that point in time but allowed Sanat Kumara to step in and make the difference on Terra. The role and actions of hierarchy is an important reality to begin to accept and understand because it helps define who we are, how we fit into the grand scheme of things, and the fact that we are not alone as individuals. We have more friends, associates, family members, teachers, and angel and ascended master compatriots spread across the cosmos than we could ever imagine.
The density of physical incarnation we experience disconnects us from the grand memories of our prior existence in spirit. But by learning about our divine reality, we can grasp and hold onto the lifeline of our divine connection through faith and understanding as we work to successfully and victoriously pass through this round of incarnation and striving.
Now is a good time to tell more about the Great White Brotherhood.
Some of the following information has been extracted and incorporated from The Summit Lighthouse Ascended Master Free Encyclopedia at: http://encyclopedia.summitlighthouse.org under the subject "Great White Brotherhood." The material copied verbatim is written in italics.
The Great White Brotherhood is an organization made up of ascended masters and unascended adepts dedicated to helping mankind raise consciousness and return to oneness with God through mastery of cosmic law and integration with our innate divine identity and purpose. The word “White” in the name has nothing to do with race but reflects the white light of the Universal Christ consciousness that has been achieved by the ascended masters and is being developed by unascended adepts and everyone that aspires to do so.
Although the name declares the organization to be a “Brotherhood,” the feminine members make it clear that the organization is also a “Sisterhood” and that there is no competition or conflict between masculine and feminine beings in heaven, only union and cooperation. In the beginning, God made each single “divine monad” as a masculine and feminine pair of “twin flames.” So, at the highest level, each of us has a divine counterpart of the opposite masculine or feminine polarity, each working out their destiny to reunite with God. The masculine and feminine genders are intended to be complementary in nature, not competitive. This truth is reflected in the symbol of Yin and Yang we have from the East.
“The ascended masters of the Great White Brotherhood, united for the highest purposes of the brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God, have risen in every age from every culture and religion to inspire creative achievement in education, the arts and sciences, God-government and the abundant Life through the economies of the nations. The Brotherhood also includes in its ranks certain unascended chelas (advanced devotees) of the ascended masters. Jesus Christ revealed this heavenly order of saints “robed in white” to his servant John in Revelation.”
The reality of hierarchy in the cosmos is a big subject and is best learned gradually because it stretches the mind and sense of Self and is best internalized in small doses. An important new awareness to have is that the workings of the Almighty with his creation is a vast operation and is conducted via a continuum of divine beings with various offices and roles. The animating and guiding energy that makes all this happen is Divine Love. The universes run on Divine Love.
Another important awareness to have is that God’s creation is all One. The laws that govern at the highest levels of existence and consciousness are one and the same at the level of the tiny electron. So, the laws and rules that apply at the high end of the spectrum of life pretty much also apply at the other end.
A third awareness to have is that since God’s creation is all One, much of the hierarchical structure God uses to sustain his creation exists for the purpose of stepping down energy from the highest intensity of God’s being to each successive level according to its needs and capacity.
The highest level of God consciousness and energy the ascended masters have described is called the Great Central Sun, also known as the Great Hub. This is the center point and origin of the known matter universe. This is also the home of the beings Alpha and Omega, which are our Father/Mother God who created us and initiated the current matter cosmos.
An interesting point that illustrates the oneness of the image of God is that the Great Central Sun itself has a three-fold flame just as has been created for each of us to sustain our spiritual identity and that has been described in this website on the “Chart of Your the Divine Self” page.
Since the Great Central Sun is tied to the entire matter universe and sustains it, which according to recent updated calculations by cosmologists, contains over 2 billion galaxies, it is hard to even imagine the level of energy emanating from it. But the extreme difference between great and small energy needs is why energy must be stepped down to enable stars like our own sun to radiate light and heat to sustain a solar system yet also be suitable for flowers to grow and for us to feel comfortable on a warm day at the beach.
All this stepping down is not accomplished by mechanical energy transformers but by beings of Light. Since God’s energy is also God’s consciousness, stepping down of energy to meet the needs of the creation must also be done through the consciousness of beings that make up hierarchy. So, for example, a pair of twin flames named “Helios and Vesta” reside in the sun of our solar system and are the guiding and controlling sponsors of this energy forcefield. Not only do they maintain the steadiness of the release of light and heat from the sun, they also emanate God’s love and wisdom and blessings in a continuum of energy to the residents of this solar system (man and woman, angels, and elementals). Since Helios and Vesta exist at elevated levels of consciousness different from our material world, the intensity of the heat of the sun is not an issue for them and the others that make up their court. In fact, they maintain a magnificent temple and city on the sun.
Solar Hierarchies Represented by the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac
Another profound example of how hierarchy operates in stepping down energy involves the twelve Solar Hierarchies known by the names of the twelve signs of the Zodiac (Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, etc.). Each of the hierarchies is made up of 144,000 cosmic beings that specifically focus a God Quality for the cosmos. The twelve God Qualities are: God Power, God Love, God Mastery, God Control, God Obedience, God Wisdom, God Harmony and Supply, God Gratitude, God Justice, God Reality, and God Victory.
These God Qualities tangibly define twelve fundamental characteristics of God’s consciousness that serve as a model for the development of Christ consciousness and also serve as a means to initiate and measure a soul’s level of mastery and obedience to God’s laws. Each Solar Hierarchy works through the energy forcefield of the constellation that bears its name. Our karma relates to our tests passed and failed as we work to master the God Qualities. And this is the way our karma is reflected in our astrology when we are born. In general, the soul is assigned to be born at a time when the astrological configurations will both assist the soul in having a victorious incarnation and also challenge the soul to deal with the most important karmic shortcomings that need to be mastered. Anyone interested in astrology may want to pursue further study of this aspect of cosmic law known as “The Cosmic Clock” released by the ascended master Mother Mary. See the Resources tab for more information.
Here are two more examples of how heaven is organized and works continuously to meet the needs of God’s creation on Terra.
Great Karmic Board — If you have ever read or heard a story from someone that has had a Near Death Experience or remembers an afterlife experience and talks about going before a loving but stern board that reviews the person’s life, they are likely remembering a meeting with the Great Karmic Board.
This eight-member Board was specially created to deal justly and appropriately with the complex karmic conditions that arose as the result of the fall of consciousness during the time of the fourth root race. The names of the Board members have been given and they are all ascended masters that have attained to cosmic consciousness.
Their role is to administer the fine line between justice and mercy when they review a soul’s accomplishments or lack of progress at the close of an embodiment. Their goal is to make the review a meaningful and memorable learning experience that will guide the soul as it studies and prepares for the next incarnation and to provide strong inner motivation to gain self mastery during the next life.
The Great Karmic Board works tirelessly to help souls get pointed in the right direction and continue on the path of righteousness. But they are also realists and must choose “tough love” when it is the best remedy. Renowned in the East, Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, is a key member of this board. In the parlance of heaven, the title “Goddess” indicates that the ascended master embodies the God-quality associated with her title at a cosmic level and has nothing to do with the earthy, sensual context of the word “goddess.”
The Great Karmic Board also has the critical role of deciding among the souls that apply for incarnation the ones whose request shall be granted based upon their merit and preparation. The Great Karmic Board reveals the unfortunate fact that much fewer souls are granted incarnation these days than might otherwise be eligible because of the high rate of birth control and abortion practiced on Terra.
Darjeeling Council — This is a council headed by the ascended master El Morya which has its headquarters located on the etheric plane near Darjeeling, India. El Morya was an unascended adept at the time of the formation of the Theosophical Society which was founded in New York City in 1875 and later moved to India. He was a sponsor of Helena Blavatsky and the activity.
Though centered in Darjeeling, this Council has a global reach that concentrates on issues of governments and economies by sponsoring individuals, laws, and cultural developments that support and promote God-centered civilization.
El Morya also holds the office of “Chohan of the First Ray.” As noted in the “Science of the Spoken Word” tab, the first ray of the seven rays of God’s energy/consciousness is blue in color and is the energy of God’s Will, good will, and government. As a Chohan, El Morya serves in the same way we are talking about as a step-down transformer of the energy of the first ray to mankind.
He specializes in finding and helping to raise up students that are ready for the teachings of the ascended masters and helps them plant their feet firmly on the path of the ascension. You may pray or call to him for such assistance. As you might expect, there is a Chohan that specializes as a master and teacher for each of the seven rays of God. El Morya and other ascended and unascended masters that serve on the Darjeeling Council are important players that work “behind the scenes” of the world to keep Terra on the best course possible given mankind’s freewill and the interfering forces of darkness. If you sometimes wonder how it is that governments on this planet has been able to successfully continue and economies and financial systems have not utterly collapsed, it is because of the efforts of key councils in heaven like this one.
The image at the top shows the city of Darjeeling, India above which, on the etheric plane, the retreat of the Darjeeling Council is located. The image below shows Yosemite Valley where El Morya maintains his retreat in North America. The retreat is congruent with El Capitan, the massive cliff at left.
Now having having provided more details about the existence and purpose of hierarchy, let us return to the story of Sanat Kumara.
Terra Moves On After the Destruction of Lemuria
While the Mystery School on Lemuria was unsuccessful in wooing the children of God back to their rightful relationship with their God Presence and the Almighty, all was not lost. The mission of Sanat Kumara was active on Terra.
Maitreya was one of the intrepid volunteers who had come with Sanat Kumara from Venus and had taken embodiment on Terra. He prepared himself through service to life in the physical world so that when he was called upon to be the hierarch of the Mystery School on Lemuria, he was ready. And so, it was Maitreya with his own attainment in God and sponsorship of Sanat Kumara that appeared as the Lord in the Garden of Eden and had to cast out Adam and Eve from the place of perfection in the etheric plane.
Maitreya has played a key role in the unfolding of Sanat Kumara’s plan that continued with Adam and Eve and their offspring down through the ages including the mission of Jesus Christ and into the modern era. Maitreya’s key God Quality is Kindness and kindness seems to radiate even through the image of his face taken from this stone statue dedicated to him.
Twelve Divine Temples Surrounded Lemuria
In anticipation of the destruction of Lemuria, some priests and priestesses left the continent for safer places taking with them focuses of spiritual fire and teachings to transfer elsewhere around the Pacific Basin and later into Asia. Some peoples that already lived in outlying areas of Lemuria were also able to escape the destruction. The 19th century archeological researcher Col. James Churchward found and published in his book, The Lost Continent of Mu, evidence that the body of knowledge that was later written down as the Vedas in India had originated in Lemuria, the Motherland.
Retreat of the Divine Mother at Lake Titicaca, South America
Since Lemuria was the civilization that worshiped the Divine Mother, the destruction of the continent was an immeasurable loss for the Mother aspect of divine consciousness for both man and woman. Temples on Lemuria actually had physical flames that were directly fed by Spirit from the heaven world and these flames radiated pure consciousness, in this case, the consciousness of the Divine Feminine also referred to as the Divine Mother. These flames radiated divine light and were worshipped because, after all, God is both Father and Mother and the flames weren’t just symbolic of spirit, they were the actual spirit/consciousness of the Divine Mother. The radiance of the spiritual flames blessed and sustained the people as did priestesses that served the altars and embodied the pure divine light.
The troubles of the fourth root race did not stop the coming of the fifth and sixth root races.
Since Terra had a new divine plan, the two root races scheduled to follow the fourth root race were allowed to descend into incarnation. So, it is safe to say that all of the children of God on earth today are from one of these three root races, fourth, fifth, and sixth. The mixture or root races is one of the factors that makes our world such a diverse place! The final seventh root race is being held back from incarnating until more is done to purify the world, especially the continent of South America, which is the main continent on which it will incarnate.
Adamic Covenant Transitions from Lemuria to Atlantis
Although Adam and Eve were cast out the etheric octave of heaven where they had lived and into dense physical bodies, referred to as “coats of skins”in Genesis 3:21, they were not castaways but still beloved of God. Maitreya in the Mystery School on Lemuria set forth a pathway to redemption referred to as the “Adamic covenant.” It was not an easy path since it involved balancing heavy karma in the physical octave and required dealing with fallen angels that had also been cast into embodiment, but it still offered a way to reconnect to their divine origin.
An essential understanding of the Adamic covenant is that it was only available to lightbearers, God’s people, because it offered a path of “Christic initiation” to his own progeny who would receive the genetic makeup that Adam carried and passed on to them. It was this Christic seed, originated by Adam, that was to be perpetuated in the entire lineage that would follow him in all descendants including Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, the twelve tribes of Israel, and later fulfilled through the Christ presence in David and Jesus. When the twelve tribes of Israel dispersed into Europe and Asia, over time the effect was to distribute the Christic seed to other nations, races, and religions because, as the ascended masters point out, the bearing of the Christic seed is passed through the genes of incarnating souls that are lightbearers wherever they are taking embodiment and therefore is not limited to a particular nation, ethnic, or racial group, or religion.
For this reason, it makes sense that all persons that consider themselves lightbearers or aspire to higher consciousness should take the history, heritage and difficult lessons learned by the souls that made up the twelve tribes of Israel as their own. The inner meaning of “Israel” is “All that is Real” and the term "Israelite" mean, esoterically, "he who is Real in the Mighty I AM Presence." So, the heritage is not limited to Jews or citizens of the nation Israel today because the lineage includes all the souls that have been sponsored by God on the path of Christic initiation throughout the ages. Footnote 2
Early Descendants of Adam
The model that parents want their children to have a better life than what they themselves had was active in ancient times just as it is today. Adam set down in writing the lessons of the fall and the interference of the fallen angels and passed this knowledge on to his offspring. For karmic reasons, the first son born to Adam and Eve after the fall was Cain, who we know killed Adam’s second son, Abel. The Bible doesn’t provide much detail about Cain’s motivation for killing Abel. But it was an extremely important event that foreshadows the later history of conflict between light and darkness on Terra. The ascended masters have provided important information about Cain’s identity and karmic patterns that tie together events that occurred on Terra after the fall. See the section below titled: “Cain and the influence of his descendants.”
After the loss of Abel, Eve bore Adam a son, “and she called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.” (Genesis 4:25) The ascended masters teach that Seth was the reincarnation of Abel and not only that but this same soul later embodied later as our beloved Jesus. As I mentioned earlier, if you already love Jesus, the more you learn about him and his many incarnations on Terra, the more reason you have to love and appreciate him!
“And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.” (Genesis 4:26) Take note of this landmark in the Adamic covenant when with the coming of Enos, men in the lineage of Adam began again to call to their God and now from the level of living in a physical body.
Enoch, the seventh generation from Adam, was the originator of the spiritual teaching that was recorded much later in the Book of Enoch and that was influential to Jesus and his disciples because it teaches about the evil fallen Watchers and giants in the earth. Consider, as it is recorded in Genesis, that Adam lived to be 930 years old. This amazing, long lifetime, which extended 178 years after Enoch’s birth, could have enabled Adam to interact with his own great, great, great, great, grandson Enoch and pass on to him the knowledge and wisdom Adam had acquired in his life.
The book, The Secrets of Enoch (also known as the Slavonic Enoch) is based on Enoch’s experience of being taken into heaven for a period of 60 days while his body was tended to at home by his three sons. During this period, his spirit was taken on a celestial tour of cosmos while he was being taught about the workings of nature, planets, systems and cosmic cycles. The Lord instructed him in all manner of cosmic law, the understanding of God’s creation, and the purposes of life. After returning to his body, he told his sons much of what he had witnessed and wrote down the knowledge he had acquired which filled 366 books. His descendants studied these books and passed the wisdom on to the members of their community.
The ascended masters have revealed that the teachings they have released through the messengers Mark and Elizabeth Clare Prophet are the same teachings given to Enoch simply updated for our age. The masters have implied that a physical copy of Enoch’s ancient teaching still exists somewhere in the planet and that it will be discovered one day when mankind can be trusted to have and revere them.
Enoch was the only person in the Adamic lineage that ascended in that era. As indicated in Genesis: “And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty-five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him” (Genesis 5:23-24). Consider one of times Enoch is mentioned in the New Testament: “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5).
Noah lived three generations after Enoch. More is said in a later section about the important role Noah played in the plan of Sanat Kumara to rescue the people of God. At this point in the story, suffice it to say that Sanat Kumara established a new covenant to carry the Christic seed through Noah and his progeny. One further point, although we don’t know the details about when Adam's descendants first started living on Atlantis, at least we know that by the time Noah reached manhood, he was living on Atlantis, because the great Flood involved Atlantis.
Atlantis and its Connection to the United States
To many, Atlantis is a legend, a mystery, or a fantasy but the ascended masters as well as seers, philosophers, scientists, and the scriptures themselves have told us enough about Atlantis to give us a dependable and remarkable understanding of what this very real land was all about.
One of the most important pieces of information about Atlantis is the fact that most Americans were residents of Atlantis at one time or another if not for many lifetimes. This comes to us from the ascended masters which makes the information indisputable and they go on to say that essentially the United States is a land of Atlanteans. The readings of clairvoyant Edgar Cayce, such as documented in the book Edgar Cayce on Atlantis by his son, Edgar Evans Cayce, also confirm our relationship with Atlantis. This means the people of the United States have Atlantean karma and we will see not “if” but “how the shoe fits” as we learn more details about the successes and failings of the citizens of Atlantis.
Cycles of Atlantian Civilization
Based on the teachings of the ascended masters and other sources, we know that Atlantis started as a colony of Lemuria and existed for at least several hundred thousand years and perhaps a million years or more. Civilization there went through a number of golden ages and also dark periods. One source that gives us some perspective of Atlantis’ lifetime is the book Story of Atlantis first published by W. Scott-Elliot in 1896.
The author indicates that he worked with several initiates of the Masters of the Far East that were given access to maps and records of the early civilizations on Atlantis. They determined that Atlantis endured three cataclysmic events prior to the final submerging of the nation and these occurred approximately 800,000, 200,000, and 80,000 years ago. This would indicate that Atlantis existed for more than 800,000 years and possibly more than a million years.
In a separate verification of the existence of Atlantis, the famed philosopher Plato, indicated that the last portion of Atlantis dropped beneath the waves of the Atlantic in the year 9,564 B. C. More of the story about Plato's interest in Atlantis follows.
Side Story About the Name “Atlantis” and its Originator: Plato
Modern historians attribute the name “Atlantis” to the famous Greek philosopher Plato. He referred to Atlantis when he wrote about the fabled continent in two of his dialogs. Because Atlantis existed before most mainstream historical records were written, historians have largely decided that Atlantis is mere fable or that Plato was referring to an island in the Mediterranean Sea that is known to have sunk in antiquity. But Plato clearly referred to Atlantis as not being an island but a continent that existed in the Atlantic Ocean well beyond the opening to the Mediterranean Sea. He also described Atlantis as a mighty but troubled economic and military power that ruled the Atlantic region during its time and had ties into Africa, South America, and North America.
Furthermore, Plato does not imply in any way that the story is fiction but rather that it was told to him by a highly respected Greek statesman and writer named Solon, who did live at the same time as Plato. As the story in the dialogs goes, Solon had traveled to Egypt and met with a priest that allowed Solon to translate ancient Egyptian records that told about Atlantis. This is the information Solon shared with Plato. Interesting enough, the name of the Egyptian priest and the city where he lived were later included in a biography written about Solon by another Greek. So, this information seems very plausible.
Some sources indicate that the last remaining island that sank was named Poseidonis and that it was located near the Azores, an archipelago 900 miles off the coast of Portugal. Edgar Cayce, the famed prophetic seer, indicates that there were three islands at the time of the final destruction: Poseidia, Aryan, and Og.
During its golden ages, Lemuria, was surrounded by twelve temples that focused the twelve God Qualities around the Pacific Basin. Some of these temples continued to function later including the focus at Mount Shasta, California that existed there from ancient times until it was moved to the Grand Teton mountains in Wyoming in 1988. The master of that retreat is Ra Mu, who bears the same name as the capital city of Lemuria, “Mu.” This is a brotherhood and sisterhood of devotees that continues to help hold the spiritual flame of purity for North America.
As the days of Lemuria drew to a close, some of the focuses of the physical flames maintained in the temples were transferred to the spiritual retreat at Lake Titicaca in South America so that the power of spiritual blessing of those focuses would not be lost. The retreat at Lake Titicaca that exists in the etheric plane over the Island of the Sun in the lake remains an important spiritual focus of Illumination and the light of the Divine Mother to this day. The retreat is sponsored by the God and Goddess Meru who also served on Lemuria.
The Lighter Side of Atlantis
The grandeur and magnificence of the Golden Ages on Atlantis are recorded in our subconscious memory and remind us at the soul level how great life on Terra can be when the people live in harmony with their God. We know what is possible from having lived during a Golden Age on Atlantis and this inner memory is a goad that keeps us working to create a “better day” for our ourselves and our children. And the soul memory is a force of creative tension that keeps us dissatisfied with the conditions of life we experience, even in the United States, because we know that God has a better way.
If we were suddenly transported to a public square of an Atlantean city during a Golden Age, we would immediately recognize how inferior our current civilization is compared to the grace and ease of a society where people are one with their God Presence. The ascended masters teach that during one of these Golden Ages on Atlantis, 50% of the people embodied the Christ consciousness. You can imagine how that would feel if half the people you meet on the street have the level of contact with their God Presence comparable to Jesus during his ministry.
"Atlantis" by Ariel Bessemer
Because of this high attainment of the common people, life was in balance with God’s love and abundance flowed through all levels of civilization. The technology of these ages was far more advanced than what exists in our modern world and science and the healing arts were aligned with the harmony of God’s laws and therefore serving the needs of the people rather than satisfying the aims of an elite few as we see today.
Jesus Ruled a Golden Age Civilization on Atlantis
The following is the kind of information that only the ascended masters can bring us. And this kind of information is the reason I have prepared this website and intended it for persons that already have an interest in higher or esoteric studies. To be frank, not everyone is ready in their soul development to accept deeper awareness of cosmic law and what may be termed “occult science.” Nevertheless, for those who are ready, information like the following is like food for the soul and is essential to awakening the inner self and higher self that is already at peace with God’s profound Truth.
The following information that tells an important part of the bigger picture of Jesus the Christ is excerpted in sections from the book The Masters and their Retreats by Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Summit University Press (pages 142-3).
"Jesus first came to earth as a volunteer with Sanat Kumara and he has had many embodiments on earth since that time. In one of these, he reigned as emperor and high priest over a golden-age civilization on Atlantis that lasted two thousand years, from 34,550 B.C to 32,550 B.C. He ruled with his twin flame as his consort after a golden age had already been in progress for 1,500 years. They were qualified to rule because they were the highest representatives of God in embodiment in that civilization. All of the people knew and accepted God’s will so the two hierarchs did not have to impose any rules since all were in attunement with their Divine Source.
"However, after the hierarch (Jesus) had reigned for 450 years, the seeds of corruption were sown by one called Xenos, who was chief counsellor to the emperor. Finally Xenos convinced the people to revolt against the government (personified in the hierarch) because the government was supposedly not supporting them. Xenos took over as leader of the government. The hierarchs and two million loyal subjects (20% of the people moved from Atlantis to the land that would later be known as “Suern,” and later became India and Arabia. Half of his subjects made their ascension at that time; the other half have continued to evolve on earth until today.
"After that embodiment, Jesus materialized on Atlantis and elsewhere on the planet where and when he was needed if the people’s good karma and allegiance to the Godhead warranted his intercession. About 15,000 B.C., Jesus returned as the ruler, the Rai, of Atlantis. As described by Phylos the Tibetan in his book, A Dweller on Two Planets, this great Rai appeared in the Temple of the capital, Caiphul, and caused to spring up there the Maxin, the Fire of Incal. This unfed flame burned on the altar of the temple for five thousand years. The Rai of the Maxin light ruled for 434 days. He revised the laws and provided a legal code that governed Atlantis for thousands of years to come."
The Maxin light was an unfed flame shaped as a spearhead approximately 18 feet tall that burned on a large quartz cube altar focusing intense spiritual power. The Rai (Jesus) had written new laws for Atlantis on the quartz altar and on parchment sheets placed nearby. The purpose of the Maxin flame may have been to empower and thereby enforce the system of laws throughout Atlantis through spiritual influence. The flame remained in force for thousands of years and until civilization declined on Atlantis at which time it was withdrawn.
According to the book A Dweller on Two Planets by Phylos the Thibetan, one of the functions of the Maxin was as a means to return the body of a deceased person to spirit. The body was placed into the flame and as soon as contact was made, the entire body would disappear.
Incal was the Supreme God of the Atlanteans, symbolized by the blazing sun. The inner meaning of the word Incal (or Inca) is inner calling, “the calling of the voice of the Word within.”
The Inca people of South America were the descendants of colonists from Atlantis who took their name from Incal.
[The ascended master] Saint Germain says that what we have seen and what we have found out archaeologically of the Incas is only what we observed in the period of their decline, that we don’t have any outer awareness of the real wealth and God consciousness of these people when their civilization was at its height.
Other Incarnations of Jesus
The soul of Jesus had other incarnations before his life as Jesus you will want to learn about in the book, The Masters and Their Retreats and other teachings of the ascended masters. As a Son of God, who is One with Sanat Kumara, Jesus has been an avatar and teacher working for the salvation of souls on many lands of Terra for a very long time.
One final point about Atlantis and its Golden Ages, as indicated in the vignette above where Jesus in his incarnation as the hierarch of Atlantis traveled to the region that later became known as Suern, one million souls that were loyal and followed him made their ascension from that land. The important lesson from this is that many people were making their ascension during the Golden Ages on Atlantis. And after all, the glory of a civilization lies not in its accomplishments in culture, technology, or might but in the measure of how many and how well its citizens were fulfilling their reason for being in progressing towards Christ consciousness and taking the ascension and to what extent the civilization supported that or not.
The Dark Side of Atlantis
I think we would all agree that it is sad and disconcerting to find that people living in a high civilization can descend into self-destructive behaviors that directly lead to cataclysm. We have the records of this having happened three times on Atlantis over a very long period and then the fourth and final drop to the ocean floor about 12,500 years ago. It is important not to focus on the negative because after all, the Golden Ages of Atlantis were magnificent, all to the glory of God. But one pointed lesson that does need to be retained is that the people, under the influence of dark forces, fell into darkness by their own free will and that it was the weight and perversity of their karma that required the Lords of Karma to put an end to the civilization.
The knowledge that negative karma can lead to storms, earthquakes, and eventually cataclysm is an important lesson in accountability itself. The final destruction of Atlantis can be considered an act of mercy as God’s way of putting an end to horrendous karma making by the people and breaking the stranglehold the forces of darkness had established over civilization.
Introducing the Book, The Opening of the Seventh Seal, teachings by Sanat Kumara
In 1979, Sanat Kumara released through the messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet advanced teachings for students of the ascended masters on the subject of the path of personal Christhood. The teachings were first released by The Summit Lighthouse® as Pearls of Wisdom and were later consolidated into the book, The Opening of the Seventh Seal (The Summit Lighthouse Library, 2001). This book is often referred to on this page because Sanat Kumara reveals many important details about cosmic history and his work to sponsor and guide prophets and avatars in ancient times.
He describes the causes of spiritual conflict between the lightbearers and fallen ones in early ages which has led to the difficult times on Terra we experience today. He gives an advanced teaching but one that is accessible to any student that has applied himself or herself on the path to higher consciousness offered by the ascended masters.
Review of Forces of Evil Acting on Terra
The dark forces that were acting on Atlantis, essentially attacking God’s plan for Terra, have been described on the prior page, “Darkness Comes to Terra.” However, I would like to review some specific aspects of evil that became focused against the children of God on Atlantis because such knowledge helps us to understand how evil works and how true it is that our only recourse against these same forces taking over in our modern world is for the people of God to rise up in higher consciousness, to unite as One in God, and demand from heaven that eagerly awaits our call as the expression of God’s Will in us, the removal of the forces of death and hell that still lurk and strategize their own evil plans for Terra.
Cain and the Influence of his Descendants
You may remember from the page “Darkness Comes to Terra” that evolutions from the planets Maldek and Hedron were allowed to come to Terra. Maldek was the planet that was corrupted by souls that had come there from Hedron, which has been destroyed by war. Adam himself was aware that the fall of consciousness on Terra opened the door to these evolutions. The spiritual hierarchy of Terra hoped that a Christ-centered civilization would be able to convert the wayward souls of the laggards to righteousness.
As indicated in the Bible, Cain was the first offspring of Adam and Eve after the fall and thus he was the “generation of their karma.” The ascended masters reveal that Cain was one of the souls from Maldek that was allowed to incarnate on Terra. The following teaching of Sanat Kumara from the book The Opening of the Seventh Seal describes elements of Cain’s psychology that led him to killing Abel and being a dark influence upon his own descendants.
"Cain’s lifestream contained the seeds of his rebellion against the seven covenants of the seven rays which he had outplayed in his prior incarnations on the planet Maldek. His mechanized religion was a ritual of self-will perverting the ray of the Lord’s will. He sought to acquire the all-power of God with the anti-power of his sling and his spear. His offering was not respected by Maitreya because his motive was to gain favor from the Lord that he might then subdue the Lord’s light to the uses and abuses of his own subterfuge.
"Cain worked hard tilling the ground, not to the glory of God but to gain God’s power that he might exercise that power over others." (p. 360)
We also learn that it was Cain’s descendants, the daughters of Cain, that had intercourse with the evil Watchers that fell leading to the creation of godless, soulless giants in the earth that persecuted the sons and daughters of God and their children and were a major factor in the final destruction of Atlantis.
Fallen Angels Embodied and Became Giants that Terrorized Seth and His Descendants
Sanat Kumara teaches that not only did the offspring of the evil Watchers produce giants, when some fallen angels were cast out of heaven and into physical form, because of the great attainment they possessed before they fell, they manifested as giants. Sanat Kumara indicates in Opening of the Seventh Seal, that Baal and his wife Anat, Tammuz, and Ishtar, which are recorded in Sumerian history, were among the many fallen angels that fell along with their twin flames. These were a race of giants feared by the descendants of Seth and certainly the ancient memory of giants like these was the origin of later legends, myths, and fairy tales about giants (pp. 360-61).
Sons of Jared Were Beguiled and Seduced by the Children of Cain
The transfer of darkness and misbehavior to the people of God through the descendants of Cain continued in another means besides through the evil Watchers. The link below leads to the story of the beguiling and seduction of the sons of Jared (Jared was four generations from Seth) by the children of Cain. This story is found in a book entitled The Second Book of Adam and Eve. While this book is outside of the biblical canon, there are many such books that cannot and should not be ignored just because they don’t meet stringent criteria for authorship. We know that Adam did write down teachings about God’s law and the experiences following his and Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden. And we know that Adam passed teachings and information directly to Enoch who, though he was born seven generations later, lived 113 years while Adam was still alive. And we know that Enoch was a prolific writer. So, it is not unreasonable to put some credence in this book.
The story tells the painful story how Genun, whose father killed Cain, accepted tutelage under Satan to draw his own people into stages of increasing self-indulgent and licentious behavior. The iniquity started with sensual music, then moved on to strong drink made from corn, then drinking establishments, then the practice of body adornments including jewelry and tattoos, then seductive clothing, then instruments of murder and war, then dividing people into warring camps, then incest, and ending in every form of perversity and grossest wickedness against the divine nature.
After Genun’s own people had been poisoned and thoroughly corrupted by evil influences, they undertook efforts to entice Jered’s progeny to join their ranks. Jared and his people lived on the “Holy Mountain,” a term that always refers to the state of higher consciousness where they worshipped God and lived according to his laws. After a year of strong efforts by the corrupt to lure Jered’s offspring, a company of 100 young men in Jared’s community come to him saying they want to go down the mountain to experience the “lifestyle“ of Genun’s people
Jared pleads from the depths of his soul against their succumbing to the temptations of the depraved. And he delivers the bottom line message that if they leave the Holy Mountain, they will not be able to return because they would have forsaken it. Unfortunately, the sons of Jared succumb to the temptation, soon lose their purity and light and find themselves unable to return home to the Holy Mountain when they try, just as Jared warned. In the end, hundreds of Jared’s community including their families were lost to a fallen way of life. Jared died in sorrow leaving Enoch his eldest son, and Methuselah, Enoch’s son, and Lamech the son of Methuselah, and Noah the son of Lamech. Thankfully, these men and their families carried the tradition of the lineage of Adam and soon made their mark.
I have included this story because it is an important witness to the way darkness and misbehavior have been injected into the lives of the people of God by Satan and the forces of evil that remain after him. Even though this took place in antiquity, the same pattern is occurring today. Yes, the use of stimulants and licentiousness behavior are commonplace in our civilization but there is a place of peace and safety in the Holy Mountain of the higher consciousness of our Christ Self and I Am Presence. Each person that is interested in achieving eternal life must choose to bond with these higher aspects of our being and avoid the poisonous fruit of self-destruction so accessible in the world.

Technological Races from Other Worlds
This group came to Terra about 500,000 years ago from other systems of worlds and is described on the “Darkness Comes to Terra” page in the section titled: “Technological renegades from another world.” These individuals brought mastery of technology that drew people away from the spiritual life and having a relationship with God and created a dependence upon technological devices and resulted in a materialistic and mechanized society. In addition to the negative influences these advanced technologists brought that have already been described (godless, materialistic, mechanistic and controlling), on Atlantis they teamed up with the fallen Watchers who possessed knowledge of the powers of creation to carry out genetic experimentation and created gross half-human, half-animal creatures such as the centaur by combining the genetic material of humans with that of animals.
The specific memory of centaurs created during this time carried over into Greek mythology. The genetic scientists on Atlantis were far more advanced than the geneticists of today and unfortunately took license to carry out extreme and horrendous experiments. Edgar Cayce tells about the existence of “automaton” type creatures used to carry out menial tasks on Atlantis that were the product of genetic experimentation. The flood of Noah, in part, was unleashed in order to destroy these mis-creations.
The ascended masters teach that after the sinking of Atlantis, the fiat of God went forth: “Henceforth, let every seed bear after its kind” to keep this abomination from happening again.
Conflict Between the Sons of Belial and Children of the Law of the One on Atlantis
In his readings, Edgar Cayce spoke many times about the conflict between the “Sons of Belial” and the “children of the Law of the One” on Atlantis which is an ongoing battle of evil trying to overthrow God’s Good in his people. See the book Cayce on Atlantis, for example. This battle rages today on Terra. Belial is the name of a fallen angel whose sons took embodiment after the fall of Lucifer and these sons were active in the spreading of deviant and perverse living on Atlantis. Read a revealing extended message about the Sons of Belial from a dictation from the ascended master Cha Ara in The Summit Lighthouse Encyclopedia under the listing "The Sons of Belial."

Looking Forward to a New Era (Covenant with Noah) in the Midst of Degradation on Atlantis
Over the last few centuries of life on Atlantis, the deeds and manifestations of the ungodly were reaching a crescendo. By this time, due to prior cataclysmic events in which large sections of the continent were destroyed, it is believed that Atlantis consisted only of the main larger island, “Poseid” or “Poseidonis” and two smaller islands.
As in past events, when the Almighty makes the decision to destroy a civilization to put an end to horrendous karma making by the children of God and to stop the spread of evil by fallen angels and those aligned with darkness, the forces of nature are unleashed to accomplish it. And to understand this further, it is not that God has to send a great wave of energy to destroy anything. What mostly has to happen is that the forces of nature wielded by the Elemental Kingdom described elsewhere simply cease holding a balance for the weight of violence and misqualified energy from the population that has built up over time. It is like removing a dam that holds back a trillion gallons of water; the flood is released.
When God makes the decision to let nature take her course, action is also taken to save and protect the relative few that remain dedicated to righteousness in the midst of darkness, as much as possible. In the case of Atlantis, Noah were sponsored and inspired to build the arc with the help of his three sons and their families to carry them to safety. Other lightbearers, including priests and priestesses that kept God’s flame in Atlantan temples, relocated to Luxor, Egypt, the Carpathian mountains in current day Romania, and elsewhere before the destruction descended. These carried focuses of the living spiritual flame of God and knowledge of divine truth and culture to protect them as seeds to plant and tend in the next era.
Edgar Cayce in one of his readings tells of his life on Atlantis when he and others escaped to Egypt due to either an earlier cataclysm on Atlantis or the final one.
Noah Builds the Ark
As did his predecessors, Noah lived many hundreds of years. He was five hundred years old when his first son was born. We all probably know the story, but Noah was a godly man and separated himself and his family from the perversity of his nation. The Almighty, holding the plan to destroy Atlantis by a flood of sea water and rain inspired Noah to build a large ship to house his family and animal life. The plans came to Noah complete with dimensions and specification of materials! Genesis 6:14-16
Final Destruction of Poseidonis, the Remnant of Atlantis
As described above in the section “Jesus ruled a Golden Age civilization on Atlantis”, Jesus was embodied about 15,000 B.C. as the “Rai of the Maxin light. He ruled for less than a year and a half but established laws, governance, and spiritual foundation for the civilization that sustained a Golden Age for 5,000 years. At the end of that period, the civilization descended into a period of darkness that lasted about 430 years and ended with the destruction of the last remnant of Atlantis. Plato published the year of the sinking of Atlantis as the date that corresponds to 9,564 B. C. on our modern calendar.
The book The Masters and their Retreats referenced above briefly describes the last years of Poseidonus (p. 143):
"After a long golden age, the civilization of Atlantis was corrupted by false priests, until “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Atlantis went down in the great cataclysm that is recorded as the Flood of Noah." (See also Genesis 6:5)
Reduction of Lifespan Due to Reduction of the Threefold Flame
A significant consequence of the flood was that the Karmic Board reduced the maximum lifetime allotted to man to 120 years (Genesis 6:3) per lifetime instead of the 1,000 years that was available in prior ages. This karmic recompense was actually an act of mercy to limit karma making in each embodiment. Between embodiments, if a soul has shown merit in the last life, the soul may have the opportunity to study in heavenly retreats to better prepare for the next incarnation. So, having shorter lifetimes could work to the advantage of those seeking reunion with God.
The ascended masters reveal that the reduction in years was accomplished by the reduction of the size of the threefold flame to only 1/16 inch in height (see “The Chart of Your Divine Self" page for information on the threefold flame). According to my calculations, the difference in the amount of spiritual energy available to a person with a threefold flame of only 1/16 inch tall compared to a person with a crystal cord 9 feet in diameter and threefold flame as high as the person is tall can be estimated to be a ratio of about 1:1,327,000. For example, the ascended masters teach that Jesus' threefold fold flame was as tall as his form and the same was likely true of the persons that lived during the first three root races. In other words, a person with the original endowment of the threefold flame would have access to over one million, three hundred and seventy thousand times more spiritual fire to work with than the average person walking on earth today! Think of that.
Here are some of the ages at death from Genesis of the men in the lineage of Noah that show the drop off in lifespan as the generations proceeded after the flood likely due to the decreed reduction in the threefold flame.
Noah lived 950 years
Shem, Noah’s son, lived 600 years
Peleg, three generations later, lived 239 years
Nahor, three generations later, lived 148 years
Explanation by God Meru of How Destruction Comes to an Advanced Civilization
The following is an explanation by the ascended master God Meru of how a civilization can come to ruin by forces that begin at the level of the individual. He is referring to his experience of this phenomenon as it occurred in the advanced civilization of the early Incas in South America, but it is certain that the same forces were at work on Atlantis and took it down to destruction. We must listen and learn!
Excerpt from the book The Masters and their Retreats (p. 223)
"In the ancient civilizations here in South America we saw how cosmic travail did produce that which is far, far beyond what you have yet seen in your modern world. We were able to see great highways builded by the early Incas. We were able to see vehicles of transportation that far exceed that which you presently enjoy. We were able to witness the great temples of truth and life and light and love that grew and manifested by the labor of men’s hearts and minds working in universal harmony until their grandeur surpassed all that modern life—and ancient life in most cases in other continents—has ever manifested. Yet today much of the region occupied by those grand temples and cities lies a tangled jungle ruin. Why, gracious ones, is this so?
"It is so because the minds and hearts of those individuals did not actually keep pace with the scientific advancement that life had vouchsafed unto them. Rather, individuals began first of all within themselves to express some form of inharmony, and then this was transmitted unto other parts of life. And there came into play a vying with one another for recognition and acknowledgment of the dreams of their life and the unfoldment thereof.
"And so it was by the spirit of competition and the “competement” of individuals with one another that inharmony rode in. And the civilization, led by priests of sacred light who had fallen from their lofty office, eventually came down to the banality of ruin. And the ruin that manifested there in South America was very great."
Moving Forward with Abraham and the Twelve Tribes of Israel
With the destruction of Atlantis, multiple plans were already in gear and moving slowly forward to raise the lightbearers once again under the guidance of Sanat Kumara and the Great White Brotherhood. The most important track was the essential success of Noah and his sons to maintain the lineage of the Christic seed in themselves and their progeny.
Sanat Kumara had established an overall and longer term plan when he gave to Enoch the prophecy of the coming of the Elect One, which as the story unfolded itself we know referred to the incarnation of Jesus as the embodiment of the Christ and wayshower for mankind. This plan would take a long time to set up because it is not enough just to have an avatar embody and try to raise up the people. Qualified souls to support the avatar need to be prepared and positioned for Jesus coming. And Jesus himself had a number of incarnations during the next few thousand years to prepare for his final embodiment and mission. An equally important fact was that the people the Elect One needed to reach and teach had just incurred a heavy karma in the dark days of Atlantis and elsewhere and they needed the opportunity for a series of incarnations to expiate (balance) the karma that certainly stood between them and receptivity to a Christ messiah.
Sanat Kumara and other ascended masters have revealed that the origin of the twelve tribes goes back to the time of his original arrival on Terra and the souls that volunteered to accompany him. The link below connects to more information about the twelve tribes of Israel at the Summit Lighthouse Ascended Master Free Encyclopedia.
Noah and his family worked 100 years to build the ark and after completion it was not long before it was needed. The use of the word “ark” is highly symbolic since God’s chosen people would be leaving a dying civilization and “arc” to a new “refreshed” world. As people of God, Noah and his sons would carry the Christic seed of the Adamic lineage to a new opportunity.
Artist conception of the size, shape, and appearance of Noah's ark
After the ark landed, Noah, his wife, sons and their families established communities in the area around Ararat, which is in the modern day country of Turkey.
Sanat Kumara sponsored Abraham who became the spiritual father of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and the “father of many nations” as progenitor of both the twelve tribes of Israel and, some consider, father of the Arab people. Abraham is considered the father of Islam, by acting as the progenitor of a people for whom the spiritual pathway of Islam would be brought by the prophet Muhammad.
As indicated in Genesis, the Lord instructs Abraham to leave his father’s house and go out into a land he would show him and promises: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and I will make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all of the families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12.2-3
An important awareness to have and keep is that Abraham was an incarnation of the ascended master El Morya, who founded the organization, The Summit Lighthouse®, under Mark Prophet and also trained the messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet. The history of El Morya’s incarnations can be studied in the book The Masters and their Retreats by the Prophets (pp. 87-92). This book also reveals that before his incarnation as Abraham, El Morya was embodied as the son of Enoch which gave him a strong connection to the lineage of Adam that carried through as the progenitor of the twelve tribes.

Abraham was the first born of his father Terah and was 10 generations from Noah. Because Noah lived an additional 450 years after the flood, he was still alive when Abraham was born. Jewish oral tradition not written down until centuries later tell about how Abraham as a boy and then a young man lived 37 years with Noah and his son Shem in their homeland. The stories describe how the traditions of Adam, Enoch, and Noah were passed along to Abraham directly by Noah and Shem and that this education was a foundation for the relationship he developed with God that guided his life and mission. The ascended master El Morya has revealed that as Abraham he was a native of the ancient city of Nippur, now known as “Niffur” in Iraq. Nippur would have been about 600 miles south of Ararat where Noah lived, enabling them to have contact, if the oral traditions about Abraham visiting Noah are true.
Abraham rejected the worship of many gods as practiced by his father Terah and successfully established the understanding and worship of the One God with his family and descendants. Equally important, Abraham demonstrated communion with the Lord and was living proof that the Lord is accessible and willing to guide and bless those who love and honor His Presence. This is an inheritance that all people of God should learn and diligently practice today.
The saga of Abraham and his descendants is too grand and significant a story to cover in this overview format. However, I want to include a few of the events in Abraham’s life that reveal the character of this man of God and how he faced and overcame many difficult challenges by maintaining faith in God and learning to trust and obey God’s Will. Feel free to study in the publications of The Summit Lighthouse additional details about the life of Abraham and about other incarnations of this soul.
Abraham and Lot, the son of Abraham’s brother that had passed on, traveled together along with their families into the land of Canaan when the Lord instructed Abraham to leave Terah’s house. When the two men decide to go separate ways because the land could not sustain the size of their herds in the same place, Lot takes his family to the plains of the Jordon River near Sodom. Fourteen years later, a group of kings in the region, banded together to wage war against other kings including the king of Sodom. Lot, his family, and all their possessions are captured by the warring kings. When Abraham hears of Lot’s capture, he sets off with 318 of his own servants (he has no sons) and confederate tribesmen to rescue Lot. The rescue is entirely successful as Abraham’s forces destroy the warring kings and take possession of the spoils of the battle.
Abraham and Melchizedek, King of Salem
On the return to his own land, Abraham is met by Melchizedek king of Salem and priest of the most high God who blesses Abraham, serves him communion, which is an ancient sacrament that existed even before the time of Jesus, and Abraham offers his tithes to Melchizedek. What this represents is an esoteric event that takes on the plains of Canaan to acknowledge and reinforce Abraham’s sponsorship by God through a blessing (at this point he is still named “Abram”) and Abraham acknowledging Melchizedek as a messenger from God by paying a tenth of the spoils and showing he understands he was victorious in the battle because it was the hand of God that delivered “his enemies into his hand.”
This is an example of Sanat Kumara and the Great White Brotherhood supporting and reinforcing their appointed representative, Abraham and creating a record of the event for posterity. In the section above, the telling by Sanat of Kumara of his coming to Terra, he indicates that Melchizedek and the Order of Melchizedek originated on the planet Venus. In the gospels we learn that Jesus is also a member of this Order (See Hebrews 5:6-7:21).
One final point about the defeat of the warring kings in this case and later instances, such as when Joshua leads Israelite warriors against the city of Jericho, God orders the utter destruction of the enemy because the Lord knows that those particular soldiers and even the civilian population in these cases is entirely made up of the Nephilim, fallen angels and their offspring. It becomes an opportunity to remove these godless evil doers from incarnation.
Abraham the Intercessor
Genesis documents the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire from heaven because of the grievous sin and sexual perversity of the people. The Lord sends three men (angels in human form) on a mission to visit Abraham and his wife Sarah to announce to them that Sarah would conceive a child in her old age, an heir for which they had nearly given up hope. For the other part of the mission, two of the men travel to Sodom to determine if the perversity and darkness actually matched the “cry” of the people that had come to the Lord from the people in the region.
Understanding what is about to happen and being concerned that any righteous men will be killed along with the wicked if Sodom is destroyed, Abraham negotiates with the Lord who agrees to spare Sodom if Abraham can find 10 righteous men in the city.
As the story unfolds, Abraham apparently has no time to search Sodom for 10 righteous men, because as the two men arrive at Sodom and take refuge in Lot’s house (Abraham’s nephew), they are forced to fend off a crowd of men who gather to sexually assault the newcomers. The next day, Lot and his family are instructed to escape the city and soon fire rains down on Sodom, Gomorrah, and other nearby cities in the area, which was the descent of God’s judgment upon the wicked and their evil ways.
A Test of Abraham
The story of Abraham and the potential sacrifice of his son Isaac, is unusual and fraught with tension. The situation seems extreme and one can only ask, “Why would a man of God be willing to kill his own son as an offering to his God?” The ascended masters have explained that this event was a test being given to Abraham to demonstrate for all time the outcomes when a soul ultimately puts his faith and trust in the clear and pure Word of God.
Abraham had an extraordinary relationship with God built up through frequently communing with the Lord and being obedient to the guidance he received. When the Lord promised Abraham a son and an heir, the reality of Isaac being born was a step in the fulfillment of a larger promise that Abraham would be the progenitor of nations. When Isaac was born, Abraham was 100 years old and he lived another 75 years. His wife, Sarah, was well beyond the childbearing age but the two of them had been faithful to God and the Lord had works to work through them. So, when Abraham was instructed by the Lord to go and make a sacrifice and to take his son, Abraham obeyed knowing that even if it was God’s will for his own son to be the sacrificial offering, God had the power to raise up his son again. As we know, in the moment that Abraham raised up the sacrificial knife with Isaac on the altar, a ram appears nearby and becomes the actual sacrificial offering, as God planned.
This test was an “initiation” of the soul of Abraham, who was prepared to pass it. Everyone that is seeking to return to God is given initiations, which are opportunities to demonstrate obedience to God’s law. Thankfully, most initiations are nowhere near this difficult. They may be little or big tests of all kinds, for example, to see if we will keep our harmony in a moment of conflicts with others or if we will be trustworthy when “no one is watching.”
One final point about Abraham, at the time God was establishing the covenant with him, God prophesied that the people that were his seed would serve others and be afflicted in a foreign land for 400 years. This was the foreshadowing of the period the tribes were in bondage in Egypt. (Genesis 15:12-14) The prophecy could be interpreted as a warning given by Sanat Kumara letting the tribes know they would endure a period of burden and suffering (perhaps balancing Atlantian karma) but that God would be with them and see them through to freedom again. The final word in the prophecy indicates that the tribes would be emancipated from bondage with abundant goods and be led to their own land between the Nile and Euphrates rivers, which turned out to be Canaan.
Moses was Sponsored as a Messiah to Free the Twelve Tribes from Bondage in Egypt
After a majority of Israel’s sons sold Joseph into slavery, as God would have it, Joseph became a powerful leader under the pharaoh in Egypt. Israel and all his sons end up reunited in Egypt after famine in the land forces the brothers to travel to buy food, their sin against Joseph is revealed but forgiven, and the entire family remains in Egypt.
After several generations of prosperity and the passing of Joseph, the size of the community of Israel’s descendants increased significantly (for example, Israel has 53 grandsons that arrived in Egypt with him). The existing pharaoh begins to see the “Israelites” or “Hebrews” as a threat to his power and starts putting requirements upon them, which gradually leads to oppression and then cruel slavery involving hard labor in making bricks to build the temples of Egypt. To stifle the increase in Hebrew population, the pharaoh institutes the demand that male babies be cast into the river (while it is the females that have the babies, it is the males that would make up a fighting army that could threaten Egyptian power).
Moses is sponsored as a messiah by Sanat Kumara and is very obviously a soul well prepared for a very difficult mission to free the twelve tribes from bondage. His brother, Aaron, also survives the pharaoh’s decree and grows up in the Hebrew community while Moses is raised in the Pharaoh’s court giving him the advantage of familiarity with the court leadership and that way of life.
The events leading up to and including the Exodus of the people of Israel from Egypt is possibly the greatest epic story in the Bible. It starts with Moses beginning to identify with his own people and the burdens of their slavery. He escapes to the land of Midian after killing an Egyptian guard that was beating a Hebrew man and is sought by the pharaoh. Moses settles with a tribe of sheepherders and takes a wife, Zipporah. A son is born and Moses lives in Midian for forty years.
The infant Moses was found in a basket in the bulrushes by Pharoah's daughter who raised him as her son.
One day, Moses is led by the spirit to Mount Horeb and is confronted by a bush burning with a spiritual fire brought by the angel of the Lord. The ascended master Archangel Michael has revealed that is was he who spoke to Moses that day as “the Presence of the LORD, the emissary of the LORD, I AM THAT I AM.” And he thereby gave to Moses the name of God as a “memorial unto all generations” (Exodus 3). Moses is directed by the angel of the Lord to return to Egypt and announce to his people that the Lord has heard their cry for freedom from their oppressors and that the time of their deliverance is come.
Moses and Aaron have an audience with the pharaoh and tell him, “Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, ‘Let my people go that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.’” The Pharaoh is not moved and orders the burdens of work to be intensified upon the Israelites. This begins a battle of wills to test the resolve of the Israelites and their faith in the Lord and his spokesman Moses versus the will of the pharaoh in resisting the threat to his temporal power.After ten plagues and finally the death of his own son on the night of the passover, the pharaoh relents and commands the Israelites to leave Egypt.
Even though they live in a form of slavery, the Israelites retained their own possessions and flocks and so the Exodus is a massive relocation of people with their personal property.The angel Micah has revealed that it was he and his legions of angels that provided protection of the children of Israel in their departure from Egypt and desert wanderings for 40 years as they journeyed to the promised land. Micah was the one that provided the pillar of fire by night and the cloud of witness by day (a visible white light from the radiance of his legions of angels) that guided the children of Israel. Micah also accomplished the parting of the Red Sea that allowed the children of Israel to complete their escape from the Egyptians in a final attempt by the pharaoh to thwart the Exodus.
The next 40 years of wandering in the desert were very difficult for Moses and the children of Israel due to the stubbornness and backsliding of many and the failure to integrate with the personal relationship and devotion sought by the Lord with his people. Some preferred life back in Egypt compared to the deprivation and uncertainty of moving from place to place. But the Lord was clearly demonstrating that the children of Israel would be protected, cared for, and guided if they placed their trust and faith in him.
The intensity of events like the writing of the Ten Commandments and the fallout of the creation of the false idol of the Golden Calf by the people can be better understood through further study of the teachings of the ascended masters. There are many lessons to be learned through these events and the lessons are timeless in that they apply to the people of God in every age.
The Lord comes to Moses to tell him his life is coming to an end at 120 years and Joshua is blessed as new ruler of the tribes. The Lord also informs Moses: “… this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?” (Deuteronomy. 31:16-17).
Moses delivers a series of admonitions to the people of Israel to warn them of the evil to come if they do not heed the Word of the Lord. He writes the ‘song of Moses’ and gives it to the people to remind them of their relationship to the Almighty that the song may be passed on as a verbal tradition to following generations so they never forget their tie and available relationship with God even during times of tribulation brought on by their own waywardness.
Moses and Aaron After their Israelite Incarnations
Here is some information from the ascended masters regarding Aaron and Moses and their future incarnations after completing their missions in this phase of the twelve tribes. Sanat Kumara has revealed that Aaron later embodied in Britain about 386 A. D. and grew from a youth to become the man Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick was directly sponsored by Sanat Kumara in that life to insure that the people of Ireland, many of whom are embodied angels, had the strong anchoring in Christianity and would later be able to carry their angelic light to America when immigration opened up in the 1800s and 1900s.
Moses had two incarnations that we know of after his mission concluded at the edge of the Jordan River, not approved by God to enter the Promised Land. Though he had sacrificed greatly and ultimately succeeded in leading the people of Israel out of Egypt, the ascended masters explain that he had not balanced his threefold flame and was not ready to graduate into heaven by taking his ascension. Moses had to rely upon the blue plume of God’s Will in his heart to wrestle with the stubbornness of the Israelites and cajole many of them to do the right thing. Thankfully, the Great Karmic Board has solutions for this kind of problem and that was to give Moses the opportunity to embody in India at the time of Gautama Buddha in the 6th century B. C. He embodied as Ananda, a disciple of the Gautama and was able to develop the aspects of love, devotion, and peace in service to the avatar.
His very next embodiment was as Lord Ling in ancient China who was a part of the ruling class and served the people in a very balanced way. Lord Ling took his ascension at the close of that embodiment and serves in the heaven world with the title of “God of Happiness.” He has dedicated himself to highlighting the spirit of joy with the evolutions of Terra. This is a heart-warming wrap up to a soul who gave his all in service to the Lord in the Middle East.
Joshua, a Disciple of Moses, Leads the Children of Israel into the Promised Land
Joshua was a man of God and if you read the book of Joshua in the Old Testament it may not be surprising to learn that Joshua was also a previous embodiment of Jesus. Again, in the example of Joshua, you see the extraordinary characteristics of the Christ in action that was characteristic of this soul, even before his actual life as Jesus. Just before Moses passed on, the Lord established direct communication with Joshua to start the process of providing him with specific instructions about what to do as events in the destiny of the children of Israel unfolded.
Though the Lord had promised the land of Canaan to the Israelites, it was occupied by various peoples that were descendants of the Nephilim and other fallen angels who worshipped false gods. The Lord gave clear instructions to destroy these people because they were a threat to the incarnation of the people of God and retaining the purity of the Christic seed. And the Lord sent hosts of angels to reinforce the armies of the Israelites to give them success in battle to clear about two hundred square miles that constituted the “Promised Land,” not a paradise but a homeland they can possess and defend.
Joshua divided up the land and distributed it section by section to the twelve tribes so that each had its own jurisdiction and responsibility for defense. The map at the left indicates the allocation of land based upon Joshua’s description.
New Era of Opportunity for the Twelve Tribes in Their Own Homelands
If the story of the twelve tribes of Israel (all-that-is-real) was mundane history, it could have ended here with the tribes secure in their own homeland and God’s pledge of a Promised Land fulfilled. However, Sanat Kumara had a great investment and long-term commitment to these people, these particular souls of God, and the destiny they have not fulfilled.
So, he continued to work with and guide the people of the twelve tribes over the next 1400 years or so until the coming of the ‘Elect One’ prophesized by Enoch even though the tribes were frequently disobedient to God’s laws and failed to show consistent reverence for the Lord and his Word.
The following items are examples of Sanat Kumara’s intercession with the children of Israel during this period.
Sanat Kumara sponsored and worked through Samuel, the last of the Hebrew judges
After Joshua died, the twelve tribes relied upon a system of judges to rule them. A judge, such as Samson, was typically a military figure that organized the combined tribal armies and provided leadership and decision making for the people. The last judge was Samuel who was both a wise and respected leader and prophet. When the people demanded that Israel should follow the model of surrounding nations by having a king to lead and control them, Samuel resisted but regretfully complied and anointed Saul as king.
The people’s desire for a king represented their rejection of continuing to be under the direct jurisdiction of the Lord and was a departure from a close spiritual relationship. When Saul disobeys the Lord’s instructions, Samuel is directed to anoint David as king. But Saul does not yield and persecutes David until the day Saul himself is killed in battle with the Philistines. David becomes king of the tribe of Judah and then also the beloved king of all of Israel for a total reign of 40 years. King David conquered Jerusalem from other peoples and made it the capital of the people of Israel.
The interaction of Samuel and David is an example of souls working together over a number of incarnations to fulfill the mission of Sanat Kumara and the Great White Brotherhood. David was a prior incarnation of Jesus. Once again you can see the unique Christic characteristics in David. He made mistakes, such as arranging for the death of Uriah in battle so that he could take Uriah’s wife, Bath-sheba. But he does repent his actions and fulfills his penance for the misdeed. When Jesus is born in Bethlehem, Samuel was reincarnated as Jesus’ father, Joseph. And this great being of light, talked about further in the tab “America the Beautiful,” took his ascension in 1684 after an illustrious series of incarnations including Saint Alban, Merlin, Roger Bacon, Christopher Columbus and Francis Bacon.
Sanat Kumara sponsored and worked through Old Testament prophets to uplift the people of Israel and keep them connected by faith to their unique relationship with the Lord despite difficult setbacks and eventually becoming captives of foreign nations.
Elijah and Elisha
The prophet Elijah, whose name means “I AM That I AM is God” served Sanat Kumara as a prophet. Elijah was the prophet that challenged in the name of the Lord, the priests and followers of the false god Baal. Ahab was the king of Israel at the time and had converted to the worship of Baal, the religion of his wife Jezebel. And many children of Israel also left the worship of the Lord for Baal. As a penalty for Ahab and the people leaving off their love and honor of the Lord, Elijah predicts there will be no rain in Israel for three years, which comes to pass and leads to famine and hard times in the land. Towards the end of the three years, the word of the Lord comes to Elijah and he is sent to challenge the priests of Baal and to demonstrate, “The Lord, he is God.” Read 1 Kings 18:18-46 to appreciate this epic and dramatic story which demonstrates the power of the Lord and the capacity of Elijah as a man of God.
The Lord had directed Elijah to take on a disciple, Elisha, who became his servant supporting Elijah’s work for about 10 years. When it came time for Elijah to be taken up into heaven, Elisha, sensing what is to come follows him closely. As the two of them approach the Jordan River, which is a significant, fast moving river, Elijah uses his cloak to smite the water, and the river parts long enough for them to walk across. Elijah knows that the finals moments of his life on earth are coming and asks Elisha what blessing he would receive before Elijah departs. Elisha boldly requests a “double portion of his mantle” (Elijah's attainment) be given him. Elijah responds that if Elisha sees him go up into heaven, meaning that he has the attunement and vision to see the spiritual process that is going to occur, the blessing will be his.
On the other side of the river, the heavens open and Elijah is lifted up off the earth in what is described in the Bible as a “chariot of fire and horses of fire” (II Kings 2). In the book Opening of the Seventh Seal, Sanat Kumara describes this chariot as a “vortex” of sacred fire (p. 165). Elisa does see Elijah go up and so he receives the blessing: Elijah’s physical mantle or cloak falls to earth and Elisha takes it up. He immediately walks to the Jordan River and smites the river with the mantle and the waters part just as they had for Elijah showing that the attainment had been transferred to Elisha. Elisha served as a prophet and man of God in Israel for about another 57 years and performed many miracles and healings and delivered prophecies for the Lord.
In the relationship between Elijah and Elisha, we see an example of the Guru/chela or prophet/disciple relationship that is so prevalent in the work of the Great White Brotherhood. It is the goal of every teacher to pass along to his or her students the teacher’s attainment as happened with Elisha. Yes, Elisha was also an incarnation of Jesus. And a profound truth is that Elijah, who made the ascension at the conclusion of his life after he was taken up, returned to incarnation as John the Baptist to go before Jesus with the message of repentance and to tell the people that “the coming of the Lord is nigh!” More information about the extraordinary return of Elijah to incarnation as an ascended master is described on the "Mission of Jesus the Christ" page.
Isaiah (7th century B.C.)
Isaiah writes in his Old Testament book about a vision and ritual he experienced that prepared him for his ministry:
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another and said Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away and they sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the lord saying Whom shall I send and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I send me (Isaiah 6:1-3, 5-8).
In the book The Opening of the Seventh Seal, Sanat Kumara reveals that it was he sitting upon a throne in the vision given to Isaiah (p. 172). He also explains key information about the process of preparing the prophets including Jesus and standing with them during their missions . Sanat Kumara served in the divine spiritual role as Father to each prophet that was serving in the role as Son. And the individual God Presence of the prophet, revealed as the I AM THAT I AM to Moses, was also active as the Father spirit principle working within the prophet.
These overshadowing presences of the Father were what Jesus was referring to when he spoke the words, “He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me” (John 12:44). Jesus was acknowledging the connection and sponsorship with his own God Presence and with the Guru Sanat Kumara and passing along the glory of his mission to higher realms rather than allowing it to be attributed to himself.
Sanat Kumara writes of Jesus and the Old Testament prophets:
"For though he was the clearest example of the indwelling Father, the people then and now often worship his person—and his flesh and blood person at that—instead of the Mighty I AM Presence of whom he spoke when he said, “He that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I AM come a Light unto the world, that whosoever believeth on me—the I AM THAT I AM that dwelleth in me who is the first principle of the Light in me and in every creature of God—should not abide in darkness”
"Jesus Christ understood that the speaking of the Word is the transmittal of the Person of myself, the direct transfer of the Light of Alpha and Omega that I AM. Therefore he said “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” Jesus Christ was the great example of the initiation of the power of the Word by the Lord of the First Ray and the chohan thereof—the unloosing of the mouth of God in the mouth of man.
"All of those prophets of Israel who went before him had the authority to declare, “The mouth of the LORD hath spoken it!” For they had received the initiation of the sacred fire from the six-winged seraphim. As it had been done unto Isaiah, so it was done unto them. And their four lower bodies were purged of the misuses of the sacred fire of God on the first ray within its orifice—the throat center." (pp.171-172)
Another example of how Sanat Kumara tied together the word of the Old Testament prophets to the mission of Jesus is how Jesus read from the book of Isaiah when he visited the tabernacle in Nazareth (his boyhood home) and used it as an opportunity to declare his mission. What this represents is that Sanat Kumara gave the following words to Isaiah first as prophecy to give vision and hope to the children of Israel and then more than six hundred years later inspired Jesus to quote the prophecy to plainly establish himself as the messiah, athough the Jewish hierarchy rejected him.
"And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias (Isaiah). And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
“'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.'
"And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them,
“This day is the scripture fulfilled in your ears” (Luke 4:16-21).
Jeremiah (Prophecy mission extended from about 629 B.C. to 580 B.C.)
Jeremiah served the Lord as his witness and messenger following after Isaiah by about 60 years. These years were the few decades prior to Judah and Israel being taken captive by the Babylonians and removed from their homeland in 586 B.C.
Jeremiah’s prophecies are a final effort by the Lord (the office held by Sanat Kumara) to convince the kings and leaders of the tribe of Judah and Israel to mend their ways and return to worship of the One God before their disobedience would lead to the descent of the karmic hammer in the form of invasion by foreign powers. Some of the people had turned to worshipping false gods and many in the tribe of Judah, the priestly class, were guilty of violating their office by practicing adultery and giving false prophecy and guidance because they had lost their connection with the Most High.
Jeremiah gave an accurate prophecy about the threat and capture of the people of Israel by foreign powers, the first threat coming from Assyria allied with Egypt and then from Babylon in about 606 B.C. The Lord gave the people a significant amount of time to make meaningful change to eliminate their vulnerability by restoring their alignment with God. Yet, the invasion by Babylon did occur in 586 B.C. because of their failure to do so.
Jeremiah’s commission—At the beginning of the book of Jeremiah, there are two especially meaningful statements. First, the Lord verifies the pre-existence of Jeremiah’s soul before birth. This is a clear declaration in scripture of how the soul exists with God and in God before coming into incarnation and how the soul is sent with a mission:
"Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations" (Jeremiah 1:4-5).
Jeremiah’s strengthening—In the next statement, we see once again how the prophet is prepared by the Lord for prophecy, in this case by his strengthening:
"Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
"But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
"Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold I have put my words in thy mouth.
"See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant" (Jeremiah 1:6-10).
The Lord through Jeremiah told the kings and the princes exactly what was going to happen to Israel if they did not repent their ways. But the kings resisted change fearing how the people might react. As a result, more than once Jeremiah was thrown into prison by a king to restrict his ability to further communicate the Word of the Lord.
After, the tribes of Israel and Judah are captured and taken into captivity, Jeremiah remains in Jerusalem to minister to the remnant of people left behind by the Babylonians, mostly the poor. He continues his ministry by writing messages and prophecy to the people taken captive in Babylon. The people in Jerusalem including Jeremiah later move into Egypt because of the difficulty of living in a destroyed and depopulated region.
Jeremiah prophesizes the length of time the people of Israel will be captive in Babylon as 70 years. How did he know? Because this was the Word of the Lord and the Lord himself was the one directing these events and their timing. His goal was to create the circumstances whereby the people of Israel could experience recompense for their rejection of God’s law by having to give up their own freedom and liberty. This was the balancing of karma and all the while this was going on the prophets delivered the Lord’s message and understanding that their plight was self-inflicted and yet there was hope for a better future.
The tenderness held by Sanat Kumara for the people of Israel is reflected in Jeremiah’s prophecy regarding a coming time when Israel is drawn together again. This passage may be considered an allusion to the United States of America and this connection is will be discussed further on the “America the Beautiful” page when completed.
"And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
"And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.
"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth
"In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS" (Jeremiah 23:1-8).
Jeremiah gives another prophecy about a future time which we have not yet seen come to pass, but we should look forward to and do our part to prepare for it. It is good to remember the understanding about the term “people of Israel” as Sanat Kumara teaches it:
“The term Israel applies to the collective body of the bearers of the Christic seed and Christ consciousness who have descended from Sanat Kumara and not exclusively to the Jewish people. The ascended masters teach that those who are of the I AM THAT I AM have embodied in all races, kindreds and nations. The term Israelite means, esoterically, “he who Is Real in the mighty I AM Presence.” In Hebrew, Israel means “he will rule as God” or “prevailing with God.” (Search https://encyclopedia.summitlighthouse.org under subject: "Israel")
Prophecy from Jeremiah:
"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:
"But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in the hearts; and will be their God and they shall be my people.
"And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every mam his brother, saying, Know the Lord; for they shall all know me from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: and I will forgive their iniquity and I will remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:31-33).
The ascended masters have explained that this condition of having God’s laws written in our hearts will be possible and actual when each person accepts their individual Christ Self into their heart and bonds with that Christ Self because the Christ Self is our ultimate teacher and connection with our God Presence, the I AM Presence.
Ezekiel (Born about 621 B.C.)
Ezekiel was a priest as a member of the tribe of Judah. When he was about 28 years old, the Babylon army besieged and then captured Jerusalem and carried off the major inhabitants to Babylon, more than 18,000 captives.
During Ezekiel’s 22 years of exile in Babylon, Sanat Kumara enlightened and quickened him through six momentous visions. Sanat Kumara used Ezekiel as a spokesperson of the Lord to address the entire nation of Israel to keep the understanding before the people that it was the sins of the nation in rejecting the Lord that resulted in their capture and exile. At the same time, Ezekiel was given the prophecy that Israel would be restored to their homeland and the Lord would deliver retribution upon their oppressors, the Babylonians.
The first vision of Ezekiel opens his book with a dramatic scene worthy of the lead-in to a modern-day epic adventure movie.
"… as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
"And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures….
"As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle….
"As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightening. And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightening….
"And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness of the appearance of a man above it.
"And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
"As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake" (Ezekiel 1:1-28).
Sanat Kumara explains Ezekiel’s first vision in the book The Opening of the Seventh Seal as follows:
“In my appearance to Ezekiel in the land of the Chaldeans by the river, Chebar, I unveiled the mystery of Being as the ‘great cloud” of the Shekinah. In an apocalyptic visitation, I uncovered the dwelling of God in the sacred fire infolding itself. And behold, he saw the visible Presence of the I AM THAT I AM. He saw his glory, my glory, in the brightness of the Cloud—the same Cloud that had enveloped Sinai when the glory of the LORD was revealed to Moses, the same light that had infilled the tabernacle, the same coiled caduceus that had led the Israelites and would lead them still, the same essence of my Presence that had filled Solomon’s temple and would now become the foundation foursquare of the New Jerusalem.
“Yes, Ezekiel, the Son of man, would see what the Elect One Enoch had seen, what Jesus Christ would show to the beloved John, Son of the Blessed. It was the vision again of the four living creatures, the watchmen upon the four walls of the Holy City, ever with the Spirit of the Lamb. “And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.”
“Unto Ezekiel, I, the Ancient of Days, gave the commission to exhort the exiled children of the Mother to repentance that they might balance their karma of disobedience to the Son of God. For by their rejection of me in the person of the I AM THAT I AM and the holy prophets, they had been expelled from the City Foursquare, from the Guru-chela relationship, even as Adam and Eve had been expelled by Maitreya from the Lemurian mystery school.
“Now among the captive Israelites in Babylon, Ezekiel beholds the opening of the heavens even as I AM the opener of the door of the third eye of the prophets and the saints unto the visions of God. There is not time and space. I, the LORD thy God, stand within thy midst, O children of the sun. I AM come for the repentance and the restoration of the true Israel in the United States of America. I AM come with the vision of the restoration of the City foursquare, built upon the likeness of the four living creatures. And the name of the city is THE LORD IS THERE.
“Ezekiel saw the countenance of the Son of man in ‘four faces’, or phases. He understood the Christ, the archetype of God, manifesting himself in the Son of man, having he face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of an ox and the face of an eagle. He saw the road of restoration of the Davidic kingdom through the enlightenment of Christed man and woman. He saw the coming of the Messiah and his demonstration of the four paths of preparation as the four arms of the ruby cross.…
"As the Son of man, Ezekiel became the soul of a nation. He was and is the voice of conscience, the standard-bearer speaking to them hour by hour of what is right and what is wrong….
"He taught the truth that “every man shall bear his own burden” (pp. 41-43).
Sanat Kumara describes Ezekiel as the “Son of man,” a term Jesus used to describe his own role and status in his Palestine mission. This same title has also been attributed to Enoch. The following information is an effort to explain terms used to indicate different levels of attainment in God. Some of the content has been extracted from The Summit Lighthouse Free Encyclopedia.
The term Son of man (with a capital S) indicates a soul that has integrated with the Christ Self before taking embodiment. Jesus used this term when referring to himself and his mission. So, he shared this descriptor in common with some of the prophets. And Jesus’ use of this title may have been his effort to avoid being exalted above the prophets. For example, when Jesus came upon unclean spirits that called him the “Son of God,” he commanded them to not make him so known (Mark 3:10-12). So, a person that has attained to the status of Son of man is one with and represents the Holy Christ Self of each person he or she meets.
The term son of man (with a lowercase s) is applied to all souls who embody with the mission of bearing the light, balancing their karma, fulfilling their divine plan, and returning to God in the ritual of the ascension. The term son of man indicates that the potential exists for Divine Sonship through the path of personal Christhood—putting on day by day the garment of one’s LORD by “eating his flesh and drinking his blood,” which is to say assimilating all divine aspects of the Christ.
The difference between the “Son of man” and “son of man” is therefore explained in terms of the level of divine attainment a soul brings to an incarnation. The soul of the Son of man is already wedded to his or her Christ Self while the son of man is still working on union with the Christ Self.
The term Son of God has multiple facets. First, the term reveals that our Father and Mother God have created “the only begotten Son of God” as the single model or matrix for all created sons and daughters. This model is also called the “Universal Christ” because it is one identity but it is uniquely individualized for every son and daughter of God. So, there is no truth to the concept that Jesus is the only Son of God and the rest of us are something else. Jesus came to demonstrate the nature of the office of Son of God to remind us of who we are, to inspire us, and to establish the pathway and the power of the Word in his name to follow him in our return to our shared identity in God.
Even though every ascended master in heaven is also a “Son of God,” the term has been largely attributed to Jesus because he was so completely successful in demonstrating the consciousness and behavior of the Son of God in a difficult incarnation on Terra according to the specific mission and prophecy he was sent to fulfill. And as such, he is the open door for every son of man (male and female) to aspire to bonding with the Holy Christ Self and fulfilling divine destiny in the ascension in the Light.
Transitioning to the Coming of Jesus Christ
The following section summarizes events surrounding the twelve Tribes in the last several hundred years before the coming of Jesus including the exile and dispersion of the tribes, the restoration of a few of the tribes to their homeland, and the coming of the Romans into power. This material is quoted from the Summit Lighthouse Ascended Master Free Encyclopedia under the subject, “Twelve tribes.”
"Solomon succeeded his father, David, to the throne, and although he brought prosperity and peace to the land, he also placed a heavy burden on the people through taxation and slavery.
"Shortly after Solomon’s death in about 922 B.C., the ten tribes in the North rebelled against Solomon’s son and successor to the throne, Rehoboam. These tribes formed their own kingdom, called Israel, ruled by their own king. The tribes of Judah and Benjamin made up the smaller and poorer Southern Kingdom, called Judah.
"For about fifty years following the division of the kingdom, Israel and Judah fought a civil war over border territory. Partly as a result of their squabbles with each other, the two kingdoms lost territory to neighboring nations. In the coming centuries, Israel and Judah became more and more vulnerable because of their backsliding. The prophet Hosea, preaching in the Northern Kingdom, decried the growing social corruption, worship of pagan gods and moral decay. He warned the Israelites that they had broken their sacred covenant with God and would pay the price.
"In 721 B.C. the Assyrians under Sargon II conquered the Northern Kingdom of Israel and forcibly deported most of the people to Assyria. This was the end of the Northern Kingdom. Because the fate of the ten northern tribes after they were deported is unknown, they are referred to as the ten lost tribes. It is widely believed that they never again returned to their homeland.
"With the demise of the Northern Kingdom, Judah became a vassal of Assyria, and then, in the seventh century B.C., it became a vassal of the Babylonian Empire. During this turbulent time, the prophet Jeremiah preached God’s imminent judgment upon Judah for her sinfulness. He warned that if the people did not turn wholeheartedly to their God, they would meet the same fate as Israel at the hands of an “evil from the north” (Jeremiah. 4:6).
"Judah, like Israel, was guilty of idolatry, apostasy, corruption and moral degeneracy. They had erected altars to a host of foreign gods whom they worshiped alongside the LORD. The fertility cult’s sacred prostitution was practiced in the Temple at Jerusalem. Some of the people even took part in the pagan practice of human sacrifice, making “their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech (Jeremiah 32:35).
"The LORD’s prophecy through Jeremiah was fulfilled. The king of Judah rebelled against the Babylonians, and in 597 B.C. the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem and deported the king and leading men of Judah. In 587 B.C., the Babylonians totally destroyed Jerusalem—looting, burning every building including the Temple, and deporting all but a few inhabitants.
"A third deportation took place in 582 B.C. Although they had been taken from their homeland, the conditions for the exiles were not unfavorable. The Jews became farmers, merchants, traders, soldiers, even government officials, some rising to positions of wealth.
"The Coming of the Messiah"
"In 538 B.C. the Persian king Cyrus, conqueror of Babylonia, issued a decree permitting the Jews to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple. Most of them had forgotten and were not concerned with their inheritance; only a small remnant of the tribes returned, most of them from the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. They brought the Temple vessels that had been stripped from them in 587 B.C., and the Temple in Jerusalem was rebuilt.
"This was the time of preparation for the coming of the Messiah. As we now understand, the preparation for Jesus’ coming had begun with Sanat Kumara, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the twelve sons. But what happened to them?
"Living at this particular period in Egypt and in the Fertile Crescent were a conglomeration of peoples. Some of them were Baal worshipers, worshipers of Ashtaroth. They were a laggard generation, [reincarnated] descendants of Atlantis. They were the ones who condemned the prophets, who rejected Noah, who mocked him.
"And amidst these laggards who had come from other spheres, who had lagged behind their planetary evolutions, there was born a people of great light, people who had come with Sanat Kumara, people who were of the angelic hosts. They were mingled all together in the Fertile Crescent, and the great patriarchs and the prophets were constantly trying to draw the people of light out from among the people of darkness. They were even given the decree that they should not intermarry with those who worshiped idols and other gods. And they were constantly reminded of who their God was.
"But they did not heed their teachers and prophets. There was the mingling of the seed of light and darkness—the very same thing we see today in every nation on earth. They were overcome by the Serpent. They sinned. They rebelled against God. Therefore, they lacked the community and the physical focus of the Great White Brotherhood.
"What was left was a tiny remnant of lightbearers, and so, instead of coming into the kingdom of Israel, Jesus was born under the Roman Empire. Immediately facing the persecution of Herod, he and his family had to flee to Egypt.
"Jesus came as a lone avatar, and he had to stand against the entire Babylon of Church and the Babylon of State. He stood against the priesthood that had invaded the people of Israel, that had destroyed the real essence of the teaching of Moses and Sanat Kumara. Because they had already lost their true race and had mingled with the peoples of Canaan and of the Fertile Crescent, most of the twelve tribes had compromised their own Christ consciousness given to them by their prophets. Therefore, they could not recognize the Christ in Jesus.
"(Note: The essence of the original teaching of Moses and Sanat Kumara was kept by the Essene communities, who were only a small minority in the Holy Land. Jesus’ parents were part of this community, which provided the spiritual cradle for Jesus’ incarnation. It is believed by many scholars that the early Christian community grew out of the Essene community).
"Nevertheless, he came, and when he raised up his apostles and gave them his mantle to go after the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matt. 10:6), he was sending them to find the lightbearers of the lost tribes, those who had lost their identity, forgotten who they were and were now scattered abroad. He sent them throughout Asia Minor. They went as far as India and Italy. They went throughout the entire known world, searching for the lightbearers.
"The twelve tribes today"
"What happened to the twelve tribes? They were scattered across the face of the earth following the ministry of Jeremiah.
"The ten northern tribes have reincarnated among those who have been called the “Gentiles.” Some have sought to trace physically the migration of these tribes to Europe, Russia and the British Isles. They trace the origins of the shields and crests of the different cities and states to those of the twelve tribes, whose emblems are derived from the final blessing Jacob gave his sons. They also see the prophecies of Jacob and Moses about the different tribes fulfilled in the history of different European nations.
"Whether the tracing is proven through a physical lineage or not, we do know that they remained intact as a soul mandala. They have descended, many of them walking according to the Christian faith, accepting the Messiah and yet forgetting their origin as members of those ten tribes. The tribes of Judah and Benjamin in the south and some of the Levites who were with them remembered they were Jews but did not perceive the fulfillment of the prophecy of the coming of Messiah.
"The members of the twelve tribes are Sanat Kumara’s legions. They have been carrying this flame of the true Israel through all the mystery schools, through Camelot, through the school at Crotona, through the ashrams of India and Asia. Everywhere there has been a nucleus of lightbearers and the acknowledgment of the Source and the Mediator (The I AM THAT I AM and the Christ), there has been the gathering, once again, of the Israelites scattered over the face of the earth as the seed of Abraham, which became the seed of Christ through David.
"The Bible is a record of how these souls who came through Abraham succeeded and how they failed. The twelve tribes have an assignment, and they are born to deal with a certain energy. We see that their failure throughout the Old Testament until their final dispersion is based on the fact that they have not seized this assignment and fulfilled it.
"This is the karma that we have today, as we have inherited the karma of those twelve tribes. As the lightbearers, the ones who bear the seed of light, we have the responsibility for the transmutation of everything we read in the Old and the New Testaments.
"Our mission today is to realize who we are, where we fit into the mandala of these twelve tribes and then to balance the karma that the twelve tribes have made. In balancing that karma through the violet flame, through our invocations, we eliminate the forcefields, the islands of darkness that keep the tribes separated and also keep the members of each tribe separated from one another. The burden of this karma is why the tribes have no sense of identity today, and the real members of the tribes have no idea who they are.
"Jesus Christ took embodiment to go after the lost sheep of the house of Israel, those who had lost their memory of having ever been part of the light of Sanat Kumara. And we, today, are a remnant of those tribes. The lightbearers incarnating in every age in East and West are the very same members of the twelve tribes of Israel.
"Old Testament prophecy, then, is our heritage. Coming out of Egypt, crossing over the Red Sea, going into the Promised Land and then being disobedient and being chastised—all of this is what we have gone through collectively in our incarnations of the West."
Since the role of Jesus Christ is so important, more details about his mission are covered on the next page, "Mission of Jesus the Christ."
Conclusion of this page: Sanat Kumara Rescued Terra
Sanat Kumara initiated and guided the long term process of restoring the seed of Adam and Eve to their divinity after the Fall of consciousness on Lemuria, through Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and many others leading to the incarnation of Jesus Christ as the Elect One. Jesus came to demonstrate the person of Christ, to expose and rebuke the fallen angels (translated in the Greek as "vipers”) that had overrun the Jewish hierarchy, to demonstrate the physical victory over death, and to send disciples that would spread the message of the risen Christ far and wide. Jesus showed other souls what the Christ, the only begotten of the Father-Mother God, looked like and gave the admonishment to follow in his footsteps.
This was the long-term message since the time of Adam and Eve: man and woman had fallen from a high estate and just like in Jesus’ parable of The Prodigal Son, each soul is giving the opportunity to return to our loving Father through Jesus name and his commandments. Moses proclaimed, “Ye are gods and sons of the most high,” and Jesus demonstrated that divinity as the model of Christ incarnate.
As indicated above, the destiny of the twelve tribes of Israel continues in the United States of America. This subject will be further developed on another page: "America the Beautiful."
In addition to working with the twelve tribes leading to the mission of Jesus Christ, Sanat Kumara sponsored other avatars and teachers around the world to help raise the consciousness of all cultures and prepare the people in many lands for the modern age when the Truth of God could come into focus and mankind could step into a new era of enlightenment and peace. Some of the teachers in the later B.C. period were Iknaton, Zarathustra, Lanto, Confucius, and Gautama Buddha.
After Jesus' mission, was completed, Sanat Kumara continued to work through the saints, such as sponsoring and guiding Saint Patrick to bring Christianity to Ireland. Since the Roman Catholic Church denied any path of individual Christhood, the saints were called upon and lifted up to demonstrate righteousness, purity, and dedication to Christ’s commandments through holy love, sacrifice, service surrender, and selflessness. The saints were essentially the ones that carried the torch of Christ’s love though the dark ages of Europe and not the church hierarchy.
The ascended masters reveal that Sanat Kumara returned to Venus in 1956 when Gautama Buddha, his major disciple and devotee, took over the role as the Lord of the World. Since 1956, Sanat Kumara has returned for sojourns on Terra to help maintain the balance of light on the planet and insure it continues to move forward to its divine destiny.
