Dear Ones,

I know Ascension lore is a bit more optimistic in orientation than some of the ways of interpreting the Biblical Revelation of Saint John the Divine. So I thought I would provide some blogs on the chapters of Revelation, with comments in an Ascension context. This is the blog on Revelation, Chapter 22 …

Overnight, there have been changeups here on Earth, through the great good endowed on humankind by the Ascension process. The good that filled our dreams with hope last night is well reflectedin Revelation Chapter 22, written by Saint John the Divine, whose visions were those of this very day and age, here on Earth.

Here is the prophecy for the coming days. It is full of hope and faith in the goodness of God. Here we stand, in the “pure river of water of life, clear as crystal: …

1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Ours is the tree of life, which bares all manner of fruit for our delight. Through the leaves of this fruit all nations shall be healed …

2 In the midst of the street [the ‘course’] of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

The curse of the serpent … that through which our forebears were cast out of the Garden of Eden, and because of which we have wandered like lost children through the wilderness and fen, o’er stormy seas beneath darkened skies … the curse that we Earthlings felt so strongly flowing through our nighttime dreams … that awful weight has been lifted, through the grace of God. Now shall we bear the insignia of His very own children, who delight to stand before His throne …

3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

Now is the very time each human being dares to step into the Light; not the light with which our Sun shall bless us, but the Light which the Lord God sends us. Now we shall transcend time and space. We shall return to our birthright. We shall remember our Spirit, our Soul, which is eternal. Through that memory we reflect the glory of Him who reigns supreme through all Creation.

5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

. . . . .

The next verses tell how Saint John was exhorted by the angel, who revealed to him that prophecy. In those days when Revelation Chapter 22 was written, people knew and respected the role of the Angelic Realm in uplifting and guiding humankind, as I hope we all may once again intuit in the coming times …

6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Then John is instructed by the angel, who says at the very first: “Worship God” …

9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Then the angel says … and this applies right now to all humankind on Earth: Let these truths be known now, this very day, for the time is at hand …

10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

. . . . .

How may we arise with this Arisen Earth? We must let go what we see as Darkness in other human beings … the injustices of world governments, the filth of the news media. We must know that there is righteousness to balance wickedness in this world, and holiness to balance that which is profane. We must stand before God in certain sureness that He knows the balance of the scale, and that He has devised the means of our escape from the Dual Realm, back to the vision of His Light. He is here Now, in this very moment. It is He who shall bestow on each of us the fruits of our efforts to know HIm and to follow His will even though the way at this very moment be dark, enmired, and uncertain withal …

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

God Himself is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end of our Soul’s journeys into physical form. So may He be first and last in our thoughts and actions during these uncertain times …

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

Next we are instructed how to get through these sometimes tumultuous days of the Ascension process: We must do God’s commandments.

What are these commandments? From Exodus Chapter 20, it can be seen that God commands we worship Him alone, and not some portion of this illusion He created for our Soul’s instruction.

He commands we not speak disrespectfully of Him; that we keep the Sabbath as a holy day and a day of rest; and that we honor our parents.

We are exhorted not to ‘act out’ during these times, no matter what manner of craziness others may present to us: We must not kill, nor commit adultery, nor steal, nor lie about our neighbors, nor covet their houses or wives [or husbands], nor their servants [or domestic help or handymen], nor their pets or livestock.

To live our lives in this manner through the coming times is to be truly alive … to eat the fruit of the tree of life. Through this way of living we may pass through the many Gateways that are bringing us into our Arisen state …

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Here is what we, the Arising human beings, chose not to be: We are not dogs, not sorcerers, nor whoremongers, nor murderers, nor idolaters. We do not stoop to lies, nor love of pretence, nor social dissimulation, nor holding ourselves high at the expense of others …

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

. . . . .

Now Jesus, the Son of God, sets forth that Saint John the Divine has heard the testament of the angel Jesus sent to him. Jesus asks Saint John to let the churches know what He has said. Christ is the beginning of the Judeo-Christian faith on Earth, and He is its fruit. Christ is the bright morning star … a representative from Venus, the planet of loving, harmonious relationships with all beings everywhere.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Next there is a caveat: We must not add to the angel’s prophecy, for fear that plague [could that be COVID?] may overtake us. We must not set aside any words of the prophecy, so as to be certain that we lose our chance and our determination to ascend along with all the peoples of Earth …

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

We who hope to ascend may stand in faith to say: I stand with Christ. I say: So be it! May Christ be with me, and before me, and behind me. May He be ever at my side. So may it be for each of you as well!

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
