Revelation of The Revelation
<1>Chapters 2 and 3 are messages that are
sent to the seven churches. Each church can be viewed as one psychic
center, and at the same time can refer to one symbol in
The Greatest Sign
and its corresponding religion.
<2>Each message contains the meaning of one
of those churches, the pitfalls in that stage and how they should be
avoided, and eventually what is the reward of overcoming these
angel of the church of
Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in
his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden
candlesticks;" (Rev. 2:1)
<3>The church of Ephesus can be viewed as the
chakra. <4>At the
same time, it refers to the first awakening of the consciousness ()
and latent spiritual forces in the human ().
<5>"Who walketh in the midst of the seven
golden candlesticks" shows that it is
Christ who revealed all the truth of the religions to humanity.
<6>Another meaning is that each person is a consciousness in the
middle of their
chakras. Each person is
a consciousness as
Christ is; each person
is an Arjuna, struggling to overcome the lower nature (Bhagavad-Gita).
"I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy
patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are
evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and
are not, and hast found them liars:" (Rev. 2:2)
<7>Who are these people who are in their
chakra, or those who for
the first time open their eyes more about the realities of their
environment and the goal of their lives?
<8>These are the poor in
spirit (Matthew 5:3) who find more and more
evil things going on around them.
<9>They try to find real guidance ("apostles") in order to be
led to the truth. Instead they find that all those who consider
themselves to be teachers and guides are liars, and these teachers
and guides are as lost as themselves.
<10>That is why the person becomes
discouraged because he sees all the plays people engage in to get by
in life. Therefore, he or she sets out to search for the truth.
<11>That was why the yogis left the regular life and isolated
themselves to find the truth in mountains or jungles, because they
felt the truth could not be found by following men.
<12>That is why the first symbol in our
is related to the teachings of the Far East (Mystical
Paths), which work to awaken or raise the latent consciousness
from the first
chakra to higher
<13>However, as long as man is lost in the
attraction of the external world and gets along with the play of
society, he will not even search to find what the real truth is.
<14>But when he finds that all the guidance he used to follow is
lost, then he will start to search his own Soul in order to find the
"And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my
name's sake has laboured, and hast not fainted." (Rev. 2:3)
<15>"And has borne, and hast patience": Why
have these people "borne?" They have endured because they became
different. They stopped playing and became searchers of the truth.
Society does not like those who are different. That is why they
become outcasts and will endure hardships in their search for
finding the truth. Their patience leads them to the truth.
<16>"For my name's sake": What is his name?
His name is "The Truth" (The Sacred Name, or The Holy Name). So they
will bear persecution for the sake of the truth.
<17>However, those who persist and do not
faint will find it.
"Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee,
because thou hast left thy first love." (Rev. 2:4)
<18>What was these people's first love? Was
it not the external world? Was it not the society that they were
first in love with? Did they not try to find the reality and truth
in it? So these people (like yogis) who became escapists are those
who leave their first love.
is against this.
"Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen,
and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee
quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except
thou repent." (Rev. 2:5)
<19>The sentence, "Remember therefore from
whence thou art fallen," completely shows what the "first love"
means. The first love is where the person has first fallen from: the
society. He or she has fallen from the society and became
discouraged about its teachings and plays.
<20>"Do the first works": What are the first
works? The first works are to bring others to this realization that
the truth is in
spirit (but not become
escapist) so also try to establish the
Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth. Otherwise, "I will come unto thee
quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place." You will
not reach anywhere, you will only become an escapist by leaving your
first love, and you will further lose realization of the spiritual
life. That is exactly what happened to the Far East. "Candlestick"
light of guidance.
<21>What are the "deeds
of the Nicolaitanes?" They are the
evil things and false guides in society. People who are poor in
spirit are escapists and the Lord
God does not want them to be that way (poor in
spirit). But He likes them because they hate
evil things and the deeds of the false guides ("Nicolaitanes").
(Refer to Rev. 2:2.)
"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the
Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give
to eat of the
tree of life,
which is in the midst of the paradise of
God." (Rev. 2:7)
<22>"He that hath an ear, let him hear what
the Spirit saith unto the churches," means that those who have their
eyes (third eyes)
opened will understand when the truth behind these revelations is
explained, and what the message of the Spirit is to each church.
<23>"To him that overcometh will I give to
eat of the
tree of life"
means that whoever understands that life is a struggle, and that a
person should stay in society and perfect himself in order to set an
example for others, will be helped to reach
Consciousness, which is life eternal. <24>The
tree of life
is the pattern in which a person progresses in spiritual
understanding. It can be referred to as the raising of the kundalini
<25>These people are the ones who were
mourning and will be comforted (Matthew 5:4). They will eat of the
tree of life (Rev.
2:7) and are the conquerors of the Souls ("conquering and to
conquer," Rev. 6:2).
