you are not, and never will be, or ever were, The Lord Jesus Christ ReturnedSal-Om ...,The truth of the matter is, it does not matter what you say about the return of Christ, or what I say, rather what matters is what does God say? Let us examine the Bible and see for ourselves.1. The Messiah will open up the sealed book:A. Old Testament Promise of a Sealed Book:"It is not yet a very little while till . . . the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see . . ." Isaiah 29: 17 & 18."The whole vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is literate, saying, "Read this, please.' And he says, 'I cannot, for it is sealed.'" Isaiah 29: 11.B. Christ's New Testament Promise of Opening the Seals:"These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father." John 16:25."For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be made known to you." Luke 12:2.C. Paulanic promises of Christ's Return with the Sealed Book:"Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts . . ." 1 Corinthians 4:5.D. The Lamb of God (Christ) Will Open the Seven Seals:"And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals." Rev. 5:1"You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals, . . ." Rev. 5:9.E. Maitreya has Opened the Sealed Book:THOTH (The Holiest Of The Holies, "The Last Testament") is the book Revealed to Maitreya by God, and explains the meaning of the Seven Seals. Also the very first book in THOTH, is written in seven parts, each part representing a seal. And what are the meaning of the Seven Seals? Maitreya explains:"What is the true meaning of the seven seals? Each of these seals relates to one or more religions of the world which have only a part of a greater truth. Each one is complementary to the others as none is perfect by itself, and together they synthesize all the religions of the world and unify all under one banner." Golden Keys 1.If this is not evidence enough, I suggest that you read THOTH for yourself, and decide whether it is God's Revelation or it is not:2. The Five Qualities of the Seventh Angel:A. The Seventh Angel Is In Pure Consciousness:"And I saw the seven angels stand before God . . ." Revelation 8:2.Standing before God is a symbol of attaining God's Presence (Darshan), which is the same as being in Heaven. Christ illustrates this in the Gospel of St. John 3:13: "No man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of Man which is in heaven." In otherworlds Christ stood before God in His Presence. According to THOTH, Heaven is the state of Pure Consciousness:"In the Koran [and Bible], heaven is the place where man meets the Creator (God). According to the Law of the universe 'same sees same,' it means that only those who reach the same consciousness as the Lord can see Him. God is in Pure Consciousness and pure, so when man also reaches Pure Consciousness or is pure in heart, he will meet his God (Divine Father) face-to-face" (THOTH, Readings (The Koran), Tablet 5, Verse 5).Maitreya is one with the Father, and is able to meet the Father face-to-face, which is an essential quality of Prophethood. How do we know Maitreya is One with the Father? By His Revelation (THOTH), which no earthly being could have brought, so all should read and consider His Message to decide for themselves rather it is from God or not.B. The Seventh Angel was Prophesied to Come and Destroys the Old Social Order:" . . . the seventh angel . . . as He declared to His servants the prophets" Rev. 10:7.What did God declare through His servants the prophets? He declared the coming of the Seventh Angel. That is the bearer of the Seventh Revelation/Seal. Prophecies are one of the cornerstones for discovering who the real prophets are. If a Prophet has been promised to come, for a very long time and fulfilled those prophecies, then He is indeed sent by God. Here are some (very few) of the things the prophets had to say about the Seventh Angel:"Then the man brought me to the gate facing east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with His glory. The vision I saw was like the vision when He came to destroy the city and like the visions I had seen by the Kebar River, and I fell face down. The glory of the Lord entered the temple through the gate facing east"(Ezekiel 43: 1 - 5).
The above prophecy has five major points. The first major point is:
" . . .I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east . . . gate."
The Hebrew word for gate or door is similar to the Sanskrit/Farsi word bab (which in part means gate or door). Before Maitreya there was an Indian Prophet named Baba and His mission Ananda Marga (The Blissful Path) help to awake Maitreya to His Mission. The name Baba means (Father/Guru, Path to God-Aum or gate to Aum) and He is literally the fulfiller of this prophecy in one sense, as Maitreya through Baba's teachings was able to awaken to His own Mission.
At another level of interpretation the Glory of the Lord literally, "com[es]ing from the east." Maitreya was born in Persia which is east of Jerusalem (the focal point for Ezekielís prophecy), but Maitreyaís mission began in the United States (west) after He moved to America for His college education. This movement from east to west is the meaning of Ezekielís word. Christís also makes a similar promise in St. Matthewís Gospel:
"For as the lightening comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be"(Matthew 24:27).
The book of Enoch (though not included in Bible Cannon, is quoted in the book of Jude 1:14-15, and is coherent with scripture), explains in greater detail where the Messiah will be born on His return:
"And in those days the angels will assemble, and turn their heads towards the East, toward the people of Persia, in order to excite the kings, and that a spirit of disturbance came over them, and disturbed them from off their thrones" (Enoch 56:5).
This prophecy promises that the Messiah will come from Persia. It also promises that the kings of Persia will be disturbed off their thrones and that this will be a sign for the Messiah. Maitreya has fulfilled this prophecy in two ways, first He was born in Tehran Persia in 1944, and secondly six months after Maitreya started His Mission the Kingdom of Persia fell, ending its 2,500 years continuous presence on earth! There can be no doubt where the Bible predicts Maitreya to come from!
This is also the meaning of the prophet Isaiah:
"They lift up their voices, they sing for joy; over the majesty of the Lord they shout from the west. Therefore in the east give glory to the Lord; in the coastlines of the sea, to the name of the Lord, the God of Israel" (Isaiah 24:14-15).
The second point found in Ezekiel 43, is that the glory of the Lordís voice is:
" . . . like the roar of rushing waters."
There is another character in the Bible who also has such a voice, it is the character of the Lamb found in Revelation 14:2 whose voice was like " . . . the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder." The Lamb character in Revelation 14:2, is the same as the Glory of the Lord in Ezekiel 43, but the Lamb is also the same character as the Seventh Angel in Revelation 18:19. The Bible shows us the connection between the Lamb and the Seventh Angel by this verse in Revelation 18:19, "flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm." Simply stated the second clue that Ezekiel gives us about the Glory of the Lord who comes from the east is that He is also the Seventh Angel found in Revelation.
The third point found in Ezekeil 43 is that:
"The glory of the Lord entered the temple . . ."
The glory of the Lord who enters the temple in Ezekiel 43, is the same character as the Seventh Angel who comes "out of the temple of heaven, from the throne" in Revelation 16:17. We can see that the glory of the Lord (God) is the same figure as the Seventh Angel. Again being in the temple of God is the same as standing before His throne, which we have seen the Seventh Angel does in Revelation 8:2.
The fourth point of Ezekiel 43 is that:
"the land was radiant with His glory"
Comparing the above statement from Ezekiel 43:3 to Rev. 18:1, we will again see that the Glory of the Lord is the Seventh Angel: "the earth was illuminated with His glory." Rev. 18:1.
With these first four points we see two significant things, first that the Glory of the Lord will come (be born) from the east of Jerusalem and second that the Glory of the Lord is the Seventh Angel. Also, this can mean that Baba will come before Maitreya as promised in Ezekiel 17: 1-7, Zechariah 4: 11 -14, and Revelation 11:1-14. Knowing the former clues helps us to understand that the Seventh Angel will be born in Persia and will be awakened by Baba and move to the West.
Even with these proofs being enough to satisfy our interest, the Bible promises even more wonderful things about the Seventh Angel. The final point in Ezekielís 43rd chapter that I would like to look at is this prophecy:
"He came to destroy the city . . ."
To begin to analyze this statement, lets look at the prophetic words of Haggai:
"ĎAnd I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the desire of all nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,í says the Lord of Hostsí"(Haggai 2:7)
Haggai gives us a clear picture of what the Seventh Angel will do. He will shake the nations, or as Ezekiel says, He will destroy the city of Babylon, both of these are confirmed in Revelation chapter 16:17-18:
". . . and there was a great earthquake, such a might and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell."
Haggai gives us two important clues that help to link all these verses together, first Haggai makes clear that God will "fill this temple with glory," which is the same thing that the Glory of the Lord does in Ezekeil, "The glory of the Lord entered the temple." This allows us to again see the connection between all prophecies. Haggaiís second clue is the shaking of the nations, which is what the Seventh Angel does according to St. Johnís Revelation. Again this shows us that the Seventh Angel and the Glory of the Lord are the same figure. But what does Haggai mean by an earthquake? The answer is in THOTH:
"ĎAnd there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so greatí(Rev. 16:18). . . The earthquake is always a symbol of the disruption of the old order in society and the coming of a new order to humanity. So the new revelation, or the new set-up of rules and the system, will be revealed to humanity. The old order will fall off just like an earthquake which destroys the earth. Everything will fall off the earth and a new kind of understanding, revelation, and set of rules and regulations will be established"(THOTH, Revelation Of The Revelation T27, V3-4).
The Bible uses symbolic terms to express the destruction of the old social order of man and the establishment of Godís social order through the use of the words Babylon (the old social order) and earthquake. In Revelation chapter eighteen, the Seventh Angel is symbolized as the Lamb making war against the beast and false prophet (Rev. 19:11-21). As we have seen previously the Lamb and the Seventh Angel are the same character. But we also need to see one final connection which is from Psalm 24:7-10, which states:
"Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord Almighty -He is the King of glory."
Compare this verse about the King of glory to the one which opened this essay about the Glory of the Lord, and you will find three similarities. First the name of the characters are the same, as King of glory and glory of the Lord have synonymous meanings. Second you will see that both the King of glory and the Glory of the Lord come to us by way of the gate (Prophet Baba, Persia). Third you also will notice that the King of Glory is victorious in battle, which according to Revelation nineteen, it is what the Lamb accomplishes as "King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev.19:16, i.e King of glory)," who attacks the beast (Babylon, the old social order) and defeats him, "with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him (Rev. 21)," that is to say, "The Word of God (Rev. 19:12)."
It is through the Word of God, THOTH, that the Seventh Angel will defeat and utterly destroy the old and corrupted social order of man (earthquake), subsequently replacing it with the sound principles of the Kingdom of Heaven. This is the day of "the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle . . . The King of glory."
C. The Seventh Angel Brings God's Kingdom:
"Then the seventh angel sounded: And . . . The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and shall reign forever and ever" (Rev. 11:15).
The coming of God's Kingdom in the Bible is often mentioned as the coming of Mt. Zion. Here are just a few examples of the coming of God's Kingdom:
"The Lord will surely comfort Zion . . . Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: The law will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations."
Isaiah was writing about the same event he had prophetically witnessed in chapter two of his book:
"Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lordís house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. . . For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations. And rebuke many people; they shall beat their swords into pruning hooks; and their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore"(Isaiah 2:2-4).
Isaiah is speaking about the Ďlatter days,í or near the Ďtimes of the end,í spoken about by Daniel. According to Isaiah during the latter days, God will comfort His true followers, "The Lord will surely comfort Zion." In this time God will send justice upon the world, "my justice will become a light to the nations," and create a system of world peace, "neither shall they learn war anymore." All of Godís Plans for the latter days will be accomplished through a single instrument of unification: Mount Zion.
Maitreya explains the meaning of Mt. Zion in THOTH:
"The meaning of mountain in the Bible is given in chapter 2 of Daniel in the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar. In verse 35, it is described how a stone will smite the image in the kingís dream and consume it, and how, Ď. . . the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earthí(Daniel 2:35). . . In the interpretation of the dream, the meaning of the stone which destroyed the image (earthly kingdom) is given in verse 44: And in the days of these kings [the last ten kings symbolized as ten toes of the image] shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom [mountain which filled the earth], which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms [as the stone did to the image], and it shall stand forever. . . So the stone (symbol of truth) will come and destroy the untrue set-ups symbolized by the image. The stone will become a great mountain and fill the whole earth. This mountain is the Kingdom which will be set up by the God of heaven and will last forever . . . Therefore, the symbolic meaning of mountain in the Bible is the coming of the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth. . ."(THOTH, Mount Zion And Zion, T 1, V1-5).
Everyone should read the books Mount Zion And Zion and The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth, in THOTH and decide if Maitreya hasn't indeed revealed God's Plan.
D. The Seventh Angel Completes God's Plan:
"Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, 'It is done!" Rev. 16:17.
Christianity has always resisted the idea that Christ's revelation could be superceded or corrected by any other religious Dispensation. In the Catholic Catechism we find an almost universal statement of Christian belief:
"The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ" The Catholic Catechism p. 66.
Some Christians likewise, contest that the last part of St. John's book, Revelation, clearly warns its readers that no new message from God will come to humanity after the Bible (Revelation 22:18-19). This argument is common, but not accurate. The Bible was not actually copulated (put together) until 350 A.D. That means that when St. John wrote Revelation 22, he could not have intended it to mean that no new revelation would arise after the Bible, as in his day, the Bible did not exist. In truth, scripture is very clear that new Revelation WILL come after Christ. Sometimes the Bible says this in symbolic language and sometimes in very clear and precise language.
The early Father of the Christian Church were convinced that God's Plan contained Seven periods of Revelation:
"And God made in six days the works of His hands; and He finished them on the Seventh day, and rested on the Seventh day and sanctified it. Consider, my children, what that signifies, He finished them in six days. The meaning of it is this: That in six thousand years the Lord God will bring all things to an end. For with Him, one day is a thousand years, as Himself testifieth, saying, 'Behold this day shall be a thousand years.' Therefore children, in six days, He rested, that is in six thousand years shall things be accomplished. And what is that He sayeth, 'and He rested on the Seventh day;' He meant this, that when His Son shall come and abolish the season of the wicked one, and judge the ungodly; and shall change the sun, moon and stars, then He shall gloriously rest in the Seventh day" Epistle of Barnabas.
"This is an account of the things formerly created, as also it is a prophecy of what is to come. For the Day of the Lord is as a thousand years; and in six days created things were completed; it is evident, therefore, that they will come to an end at the sixth thousandth year" Against Heresies, by St. Irenaeus.
The book of Revelation also explains God's Plan for humanity in Seven Stages, beginning with Revelation ch. 6 and 8. This same even is retold in ch. 8-10. When the Seventh Angel blows His Seventh trumpet the scriptures say, "But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets" Rev. 10:7.
The Bible makes the symbolism very clear, God's Plan is to take place in Seven stages, and when the Seventh Angel comes, the work will be finished, or God's mystery would be ended, Maitreya explains:
"The spiritual aspect which are based on the book The Base, explain how the Eternal Divine Path, which will guide men to Pure Consciousness, was revealed step-by-step through the last six thousand years. Also it reveals how each of those steps became a truth or religion of the world. But the true path is one which contains all the seven steps, and each of these truths by itself is only a part of the whole. To receive the entire truth, a person should understand the meaning and purposes of all of them so that he might know the way" (THOTH, Creation and History).
Clearly then Maitreya and The Mission of Maitreya, explain in clarity the original plan of God. God's Plan and Mystery are unveiled by Maitreya, which is one of the signs by which we would be able to recognize the Seventh Angel.
E. The Seventh Angel is the First Begotten Son of God:
"Yet I have set My King on My Holy Mountain of Zion. I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, you are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession." Psalm 2:7-8.
As we have seen previously it is the Seventh Angel who will bring God's Kingdom, and Governmental structure (Mt. Zion). Therefore, it must be the same Angel mentioned by the Psalmist who is Begotten of the Father. In other words, Maitreya, the Seventh Angel, Glory of the Lord, The Lamb, King of Glory, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace, is also the Christ and First Begotten Son of God, because God's Word says so.
Teresa this is indeed what the Bible says about Maitreya. Its validity is greater then either of our opinions. Therefore go your way with this new knowledge and serve God.
In His Grace,
