Wow, from all the discussions that I have gotten involved in on this forum it is obvious that there is an astonishingly high level of Cyrus consciousness here!!!!
But this can only happen when men and women have discovered that within their own souls is the light of the spirit of Christ, the Christ light which is the seed given to every one of them’ ………..THE LIGHT BRINGER. (White Eagle)
I would like to call your attention first to the tradition that perhaps Rabbi Jesus/Yehoshua may have had an identical twin brother. All of may be encouraged by the idea that perhaps his twin, like us, had a major tendency toward disbelief?!?!
Few texts identify Thomas' other twin, though in the Book of Thomas the Contender, part of the Nag Hammadi library, it is said to be Jesus himself: "Now, since it has been said that you are my twin and true companion, examine yourself…"
In 1966 Bruce MacDonald had an amazing near death experience in which he was shown much about the twin brother of Rabbi Jesus/Yehoshua.
Only days after our engagement, while working on a construction site on June 3rd, 1966, I fell down a 37 foot piling shaft, crushed one of my vertebrae to half size, badly fractured two others and tore all my inner organs out of place. A few days after that, I died and had a Near Death Experience during which I met and talked with Jesus, Elijah and Moses, in a scene which mirrored the Transfiguration. We discussed a "project" in which we were all involved, a project which had to do with the development of human spiritual consciousness and which involved many thousands of people over thousands of years. I describe the NDE in detail in both The Thomas Book and The Prayer of Silence, since it is at the base of the relationship I established with Yeshua (Jesus), which allowed me to write The Thomas Book, and which opened up to me the inner nature of human consciousness in a dramatic way and gave me clues to practicing and teaching the kind of meditation I later learned from spiritual sources and wrote intoThe Prayer of Silence. The rest of my life was given focus and impetus in the Near Death Experience. It is the pivot on which everything else swings. (Bruce F. MacDonald Ph. D.)
The details that Bruce MacDonald adds regarding the crucifixion are so astonishingly impressive that I suspect he was given this to give us an idea of how a Yom Kippur event will be worked out in our time period much as a Passover, Unleavened Bread and Pentecost event were fulfilled in the time of the apostles.
Selection from Chapter Two: The Death
We did not want him to die!
Yet how can I write this part of the story? It is our shame! It is my torment! And who will believe, after all these years?
But this secret has been locked up in my heart for too long.
Why should he die? We all told him of the danger. And we had seen others die for lesser teachings than his.
He had been such a comfort to us, leading us to life. Now he seemed bent on death, almost suicide. We begged him often not to go again to Jerusalem because we knew of the anger of the Temple authorities. They wished to kill him as much as we wanted him alive.
How had he offended them? By telling them of their hypocrisy. “Whited sepulchres,” he called them, and “viper’s brood.” And they proved that way. They would invite him as a guest to their homes, only to find evidence against him.
When he healed on the Sabbath, even in the name of the Father, they said he broke the Law. When he gave the people food for their souls, they said he was in league with the Devil. But when he said he was the Son of God, then in a violent show, they shouted and tore their garments and said he spoke blasphemy.
“He must die,” they shouted in a frenzy.
Calmly he spoke to them, “Will it change anything, even if I die? Will you be closer to God or will my words die? Death is nothing but a door. When you kill my body, I will yet see you and your sin.” (Bruce F. MacDonald Ph. D.)
Christ Consciousness/Messiah Consciousness will manifest in a somewhat different manner in different groups of people. A time is coming when a rather feeble Jew will have attained a pattern of thought and behaviour that can be compared with King David:
In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
We Gentiles can attain to a level of thought and behaviour and emotion that is comparable with ancient King Cyrus who gave freedom of religion to all 127 provinces in the Media/Persian Empire.
Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call [thee] by thy name, [am] the God of Israel.
For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
I read about both the Ghost Dance prophecies that had been given previous to the Massacre at Wounded Knee as well as the White Dog prophecy back in the 1990's. The correlations between the Ghost Dance prophecies with the resurrection of Ezekiel 37 jumped out at me.
The chief figure in the movement was the prophet of peace, Jack Wilson, known as Wovoka among the Paiute. He prophesied a peaceful end to white expansion while preaching goals of clean living, an honest life, and cross-cultural cooperation by Native Americans. Practice of the Ghost Dance movement was believed to have contributed to Lakota resistance. In the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890, U.S. Army forces killed at least 153 Lakota Sioux. The Sioux variation on the Ghost Dance tended towards millenarianism, an innovation that distinguished the Sioux interpretation from Jack Wilson's original teachings. The Caddo Nation still practices the Ghost Dance today.[
It could be extremely significant if indeed there were two babies within the womb of Mary/Myriam when the babe, John the Baptist, leaped within the womb of his mother Elizabeth?!?!
One of the important roles of the final Elijah will be to restore the lost tribes of Israel.
And Elias the prophet stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch.  He brought a famine upon them, and they that provoked him in their envy, were reduced to a small number, for they could not endure the commandments of the Lord.  By the word of the Lord he shut up the heaven, and he brought down fire from heaven thrice.  Thus was Elias magnified in his wondrous works. And who can glory like to thee?  Who raisedst up a dead man from below, from the lot of death, by the word of the Lord God.
 Who broughtest down kings to destruction, and brokest easily their power in pieces, and the glorious from their bed.  Who heardest judgment in Sina, and in Horeb the judgments of vengeance.  Who anointedst kings to penance, and madest prophets successors after thee.  Who wast taken up in a whirlwind of fire, in a chariot of fiery horses.  Who art registered in the judgments of times to appease the wrath of the Lord, to reconcile the heart of the father to the son, and to restore the tribes of Jacob
I began studying near death experience accounts in 1990. By '92 I had ran into the two books on visions of past lives as seen in a hypnotic state by Helen Wambach Ph. D.
Later on I ran into another study conducted by Helen Wambach and Dr. Chet Snow on what people saw if progressed into the FUTURE while in a hypnotic state.
At first this study did not make any sense to me because I could not see how the future could exist yet but last year it hit me what this probably means and how this can fit perfectly with Ezekiel 37.
The volunteers who were progressed into the future from 1980 to 1983 saw a decade of the '90's that was vastly more turbulent than what we have experienced. Time probably looks far more like a menorah and is not limited to being only a straight line as I had supposed in the past.
AMERICA IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM
After the major Earth Changes 1998-2012 AD
as foreseen in Mass Dreams of the Future
by Dr. Chet B. Snow
I am almost certain that by January 1, 2013 the USA will NOT look like the map seen by the people in that study....because we are probably in a very different branch of the menorah/branch of time?!
We are dealing with a Creator who has such astonishing technological capability that it is a simple thing for God to recreate the earth as it was in a moment of the past....including each and every human who was living at that time....but in the new branch of time a greater level of the Holy Spirit/Ruach ha Kodesh is poured out and God leads humanity up to a much higher level of consciousness in these recreations of the past and the spinning off of a new future?!?!
I wrote a blog a couple of years ago that puts together some of what theoretical physicists are telling us at this time with the paranormal and confirm that a Creator/Creators composed of fundamental energy would be able to do essentially anything that we humans could think of or imagine, such as the resurrection of all the dead....
|Isaiah 40:17||All nations before him [are] as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.|
The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which [was] full of bones,
And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, [there were] very many in the open valley; and, lo, [they were] very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD......
vs. 13, 14
And ye shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken [it], and performed [it], saith the LORD.
Here is a good article on the White Dog ceremony:
In his ground-breaking work, League of the Iroquois, first published in 1851, anthropologist Lewis Henry Morgan also described the white dog sacrifice, and provided some insight into why this ceremony held the spiritual significance that it did among the Iroquois.
Morgan explains, “The fidelity of the dog, the companion of the Indian as a hunter, was emblematic of their fidelity. No messenger so trusty could be found to bear their petitions to the master of life. The Iroquois believed that the Great Spirit made a covenant with their fathers to the effect that, when they should send up to him the spirit of a dog of spotless white, he would receive it as the pledge of their adherence to his worship, and his ears would thus be opened in a special manner to their peitions.”
On a related note here is the near death experience of Jan Price who while in the out of the body state meets her recently deceased Springer named Maggie.
As the density changed, becoming lighter and finer, I felt that I was being lifted to another level of awareness - and then I found myself in surroundings that appeared to be more substantial - Maggi was there. My beautiful dog, my beloved springer, came to me. She had died less than a month before, and John and I still ached from her absence.
I felt her presence, her love, and she appeared to me as she had when she was in physical form - only younger, more vital. She said, "You know that Daddy can't handle both of us being gone right now."
"Yes, I'm going back," I replied. "Will you come soon?"
"When it is time, we will know. Now I will show you wondrous things. Let's explore together."
If you are having difficulty accepting the idea that my first encounter on the other side was with a dog, you aren't the only one. While John thought it was perfectly natural, one of our daughters became a little upset when I told her about it. I think she would have preferred that her mother be greeted by Jesus, an angel, or at least by a family member. I did meet a Master Teacher - I'll get to that later - but Maggi came first. After all, she had been close "family" for many years, and whoever is responsible for setting up the Welcome Wagon over there certainly knew what a delightful experience it would be for me to be greeted by her
In our time period when climate change threatens much of the life forms on our earth this prayer becomes especially relevant:
Now again the smoke arises,
Continue to listen as you inhale this incense,
For we are discussing the things of your creation
That you did think should be a benefit to mankind,
Oh you who were born of Earth,
Oh you who dwell in the sky!
Now you did think that there should be a world and that it should become cold,
At a recurring season become cold again.
Now we implore thee that it should not be too great a cold
And likewise when the earth becomes warm again,
That the heat should be moderate and comfortable.
Now again the smoke arises
To you who were born of Earth,
To you who dwell in the sky!
I also have wondered if the Hopi Pahana prophecy could correspond with the latter day King Cyrus prophecy of Isaiah 45 and 46??????
To be perfectly blunt, I would be willing to take a shot at doing this myself.......but I don't think I can.......I am simply not as gifted in the ways that the Pahana or the Cyrus person seems to be.....but the Elijah type stirs up the heart of Mashiach ben Ephrayim/Yosef according to Jewish tradition.....i think that I could do a somewhat better Elijah audition......and I am looking for a possible Cyrus/Pahana type person to "stir up" somehow!!!
