The Seven Labors

The Seven Labors

“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

“And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.” Revelation 16:1-2

As I said, the seven angels represent the final seven labors of the disciple “upon the earth,” or among mortal humans centered in lower consciousness.

In the first labor the disciple pours a vial of the wrath, or passion of the God within upon the earth. In other words, he teaches about true physical order, health and freedom.

Those who have the mark of the beast do not listen and suffer “a noisome and grievous sore.”

“Noisome” comes from the Greek KAKOS which is usually translated as “evil” and implies a bad nature or wrong mode of thinking.

“Grievous” comes from PONEROS which implies difficult labor, toils, peril or, in a physical sense, disease.

“Sore” comes from HELKOS which implies a “wound,” a “sore” or an “ulcer.”

This tells us that those who have the mark of the Beast will suffer ill health, will labor in drudgery as if they were a slave and work to support organizations and stone buildings rather than the living spirit.

These will reject the true messengers who can help them and instead listen to their orthodox authorities who only guide them toward ill health and slavery. The sad thing is that those who have the mark are so misled that they accept their fate without reservation.

“And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.” Revelation 16:3

The sea stands for the emotional nature. Here the disciple’s message strikes at the heart of the feeling nature. The natural man instinctively rejects the message of a true teacher. Those who worship the outward authorities of the Beast will hate the inner authority of the message from the inner Christ.

Jesus said: “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

John 14:23

Also: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

“If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” John 15:5-6

In other words, if the words of Christ, as taught by a true teacher, are rejected the person becomes as a dead branch with no life-giving spiritual fluid running through his veins.

Those who follow the Beast may be walking around as if alive, but their blood is as a dead man and gives no spiritual life. Those who live upon the sea of hateful and bitter emotions despise the good, the beautiful and the true. They die as to the things of the Spirit.

“And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.” Revelation 16:4

The rivers and fountains represent the knowledge and teachings of God which feeds the people and stimulates their spiritual life. This knowledge has been corrupted by the authorities of the Beast. To guide the people into the light the disciple teaches the original meaning and intent behind the prophets and avatars of old. Because this runs contrary to what the representatives of the Beast teach, the disciple’s words are rejected. Instead of being fed with living waters the followers of the Beast drink blood. How is this?

The scriptures explain: “And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.” Revelation 16:5-7

The followers of the Beast drink blood because they seek to injure or shed the blood of messengers who bring the truly living waters. In seeking to take innocent life rather than receive life they are symbolically drinking blood that does not satisfy the spirit.

The next verses reads: “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.” Revelation 16:8-11

Remember the vials represent the spiritual passion of the disciple, translated as the “wrath of God” in Revelations.

The disciple directs this passion toward the soul (the sun) with the idea of bringing the energy of its spiritual power to humanity so they will have to confront the truths of the spirit. Even the rank and file feel some energy from the soul just as we all feel the sun. Imagine what would happen though if the sun became seven times more intense. Instead of being a blessing it would scorch us with fire and we would feel like cursing the sun instead.

The disciple has adjusted to soul energy to the extent that he can take in great spiritual energy without getting burned or being discomforted but when he pours forth the energy of the soul to general humanity, they are unprepared and are scorched with the spiritual fire.

Verse nine tells us what happens next; “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” Revelation 16:9

The light, the reason, the logic as well as the appeal to the love of God within is too much for them. Those affected are faced with a choice. They must either recognize their error and follow the amplified light of their own souls or resist. Those who are unprepared to change (repent) resist and this scorches their etheric web with great heat causing not only health problems, but placing a barrier between themselves and their souls.

This barrier causes them to lash out and to blaspheme the name of God.

How does this happen?

To answer this, we must recall where the name of God is. Revelations tells us it is in the “forehead” of the redeemed.

How is the name of God blasphemed, which is in the forehead of the soul infused personality?

Those who resist the greater spiritual energy cling tighter than ever to the mark of the Beast and accept the God without, but reject the God within the mind and heart. They hate and curse those who reject unjust authorities without and follow the light of the soul within. They make fun and belittle the words that come from the God within and thus blaspheme the name of God.

On another level they also resist any words that teach a spiritual progression and cling to the static status quo o their outward teachers.

“And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain.” Revelation 16:10

The question that arises from this is where would the disciple direct his spiritual passion (his vial) in order to pour it upon the “seat of the beast?” Would the seat of the beast be the Vatican or some other church headquarters? Or would it be Washington DC, Moscow or some other government headquarters?

No. None of these. The seat of the beast is much more universal than any of these and can still exist even if all the centers of power upon the earth were destroyed.

The seat of the Beast is any illusion that supports the voice, or word of God, which comes from outside of the spirit of God within. To pour his vial, or spiritual passion, upon the seat of the Beast the disciple attacks the false gods without, or those idols which take the place of God. This can be a Bible, a prophet, a holy man, a priest, a writer or any “respected” authority who claims to bring you the word of God.

The disciple may take accepted passages from the Bible and show the error of black and white acceptance. Or he may take the words of a respected authority and illustrate that they are not true just because this authority says so.

What happens when the disciple dispels the illusion of the infallibility of the outer authority?

“..his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain.”

Those who rely upon the outer authority reject the idea of going within to verify that which they have received from without. This causes a blanket of darkness to fall upon the blind follower.

But what does it mean that “they gnawed their tongues for pain”?

It means that they try and withstand and counter the wisdom of the soul that comes from the disciple, but they cannot find the words that will negate him or prove him wrong. Because it is painful for them to debate the disciple it is as if their tongues are in pain.

“And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.” Revelation 16:11

Again, in their frustration they ridicule that which comes from the God within the disciple and refuse to update their views.

The question was asked as to who was the messenger who was the mysterious messenger who commanded John to write the Apocalypse?

Surprisingly, the answer was given by DK. He said:

“Necessarily this is a symbolic way of speaking. In the Book of Revelations which was dictated 1900 years ago by the disciple who is now known as the Master Hilarion, reference is made to the “city which stands four-square.” Telepathy, Pg. 163

Since Master Hilarion was the apostle Paul we know then that it was his fellow disciple who had been beheaded by Nero that came back with a great revelation for his brother.

Why was the symbolism given in such a dreadful end of the world fashion?

It was given to conform to the end of the world belief system at that time. If the real message of the book was given in a positive format it would have been destroyed and never included in the Bible.

“We’ve heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.” Robert Wilensky, speech at a 1996 conference
