How Will Christ Manifest?
Here more quotes from DK on the coming religion and of Christ:
“In the Aquarian Age, the Risen Christ is Himself the Water-Carrier; He will not this time demonstrate the perfected life of a Son of God, which was His main mission before; He will appear as the supreme Head of the Spiritual Hierarchy, meeting the need of the thirsty nations of the world – thirsty for truth, for right human relations and for loving understanding. He will be recognised this time by all and in His Own Person will testify to the fact of the resurrection, and hence demonstrate the paralleling fact of the immortality of the soul, of the spiritual man. The emphasis during the past two thousand years has been on death; it has coloured all the teaching of the orthodox churches; only one day in the year has been dedicated to the thought of the resurrection. The emphasis in the Aquarian Age will be on life and freedom from the tomb of matter, and this is the note which will distinguish the new world religion from all that have preceded it.
“The Festival of Easter and the Feast of Pentecost will be the two outstanding days of the religious year. Pentecost is, as you must well know, the symbol of right human relations in which all men and nations will understand each other and – though speaking in many and diverse languages – will know only one spiritual speech.
“It is significant that two important episodes are related in the final part of the Gospel story – one preceding and one following immediately after the apparent death of the Christ. They are:
“1. The story of the upper chamber to which the man carrying the water pot and typifying Aquarius led the disciples, and in which the first communion service was held, participated in by all and foretelling that great relationship which will distinguish humanity in the coming age, after the tests of the Piscean Age. Such a communion service has never yet been held, but the New Age will see it take place.
“2. The story of the upper chamber in which the disciples met and arrived at a true recognition of the Risen Christ and at a perfect and complete understanding of each other in spite of the symbolic diversity of tongues. They had a touch of prevision, of prophetic insight, and foresaw a little of the wonder of the Aquarian Age.
“The vision in men’s minds today is that of the Aquarian Age, even if they recognise it not. The future will see right relationships, true communion, a sharing of all things (wine, the blood, the life and bread, economic satisfaction) and goodwill; we have also a picture of the future of humanity when all nations are united in complete understanding and the diversity of languages – symbolic of differing traditions, cultures, civilisations and points of view – will provide no barrier to right human relations. At the centre of each of these pictures is to be found the Christ.” Destiny of the Nations, Pages 150-152
“Their (disciples) work is to formulate the universal platform of the new world religion. It is a work of loving synthesis and it will emphasize the unity and the fellowship of the spirit. This group is, in a pronounced sense, a channel for the activity of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom, that of the World Teacher-an office held at present by the Christ. The platform of the new world religion will be built by the many groups, working under the inspiration of the Christ and the influence of the second ray and these-in their totality-will constitute this sixth group.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 1, Page 38
“The development of the power to recall the Words of Power which had been spoken by me, and later, the listening for a Word of Power. This recognition of the Words will be one of the major objectives of the new world religion, and hence our effort (not particularly successful hitherto) to do something symbolically analogous in our group activity.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 58
Question: This last paragraph is interesting. What do you suppose it means?
A reader responds saying: I do have a few questions about what you posted from DK.
DK: “He will be recognised this time by all and in His Own Person will testify to the fact of the resurrection, and hence demonstrate the paralleling fact of the immortality of the soul, of the spiritual man.”
DK states that this time the Christ will be recognized by ALL.
Therefore, does this mean every single human being on Earth?
JJ: One problem with this type of statement is that it has not been revealed exactly how Christ will appear. The first stage of his appearing has been accomplished and that is the implanting of the teaching of the Christ Consciousness, or “Christ in you, the hope of Glory.” Col 1:27. This belief is now firmly enough established to take root and fulfill stage one.
The second stage has two steps.
 The first stages of overshadowing. This happens through the Oneness Principle where numerous disciples tune into the mind of Christ and seek to act as his agents on the earth. When successful, the disciple will say and do the same type of words and works as the Christ himself if he were physically here.
 The Divine Possession where the consciousness of Christ is shared with a disciple, or possibly more than one, as happened with Jesus 2000 years ago. Jesus was followed by Peter who was also overshadowed, though not as intimately as was Jesus.
The third stage is where the Christ appears in a physical body of his own, not sharing one with a disciple. This would be an even more intense presence for him than the last time.
If the principle of overshadowing and divine possession are successful, or on the other hand, if the consciousness of humanity is not prepared for the physical presence of the Christ, the overshadowing principle could be used to constitute the Second Coming.
It is most likely that the two steps of the overshadowing will be used for some time to come with Christ making his physical appearance after a lot more groundwork has been done. This could happen within a generation, but more than likely would be over a hundred years or more in our future.
If the time becomes right for him to appear in a physical body of his own he will do so after many disciples have awakened and done the necessary work. He will appear first to human group molecules and other disciples doing necessary work. When all is in order he will then begin his mission to the world with proof of his immortality in a body which cannot be destroyed.
Notice that both DK and the Bible say that all will recognize him, but it does not say this will happen immediately. This recognition may take a couple hundred years of work before it universally occurs. Even here all may not call him the Christ, but they will recognize God working in him.
Question: If so, what has happened to all the people who are turned only towards the Self/dark and materialism? Will they also be able to recognize Him, or have they disappeared or changed their ways drastically and renounced all error/evil?
JJ: The workers of darkness are often the first to recognize an agent of light, but they deal with this recognition much differently than the good guys. Instead of acceptance they fight against the light with all their power.
The advanced dark disciples consciously recognize the light and fight against it while the lesser disciples merely recognize a being on an opposite path to themselves.
Question: Do you believe that ALL will recognize Him in about 22 years time? Are changes to humanity’s view of God and Soul going to drastically change that much in only 20 years? If so, is this because of the preparatory work being done now?
JJ: This is unlikely to happen by this time. But as I have said before the period from 2025-2030 will be a key time to have certain foundations laid in anticipation for the presence of the Christ, however he may choose to manifest.
The scriptures say that no man knows the date and time of his coming, not even the Son, but only the Father. (Matt 24:36) This is basically still true today except the Christ has a lot better idea of how events will play out now than he did back then.
The coming of Christ is a great mystery, but when the mission of Christ is completed, interpretation by use of hindsight will be simple, as it is now with his first coming.

NOTE: Though I do not agree with this quote I include it because it represents the thoughts of so many.
