Signs of the Return
Questions under consideration:
Does the Christ have to appear as an individual in a body of his own to fulﬁll the prophecy or could he appear in another way?
Answer: I want to stress again that the Christ consciousness and the entity who occupies the position of the Christ are two different things. The teachings circulated about the Christ Consciousness are the ﬁrst step in the Second Coming. The Christ Consciousness itself will increase on the earth for thousands of years and will still be far from perfection in ordinary humanity any time soon.
Stages two and three involve the direct participation of the great entity who occupies the position of the Christ for this planet. Stage one deals with the general lifting up of general consciousness, but stages two and three will be more speciﬁc events.
As we previously mentioned, stage two deals with an overshadowing of certain disciples. This may involve a direct overshadowing by Christ himself or may also involve the participation of several masters in His inner circle. There are several degrees of overshadowing.
The ﬁrst degree is where the Master touches the soul of the disciple and takes his aura within the circle of his direct inﬂuence. In this case the Master can loosely work with several disciples at a time, inﬂuencing and communicating with them to accomplish some great work. The overshadowed disciple realizes something is going on and believes that God or some great being is working through him. This type of overshadowing affected numerous great leaders in our past such as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Jesus also went through this ﬁrst stage before his baptism.
The next degree of overshadowing is where a significant portion of the life essence of the Master actually enters into the body of the disciple and lives there with him for a time as two entities in one body. This is sometimes called a divine possession and this is what happened to Jesus at the baptism. The Spirit of God (the Christ Entity) descended as a dove and went into the body of Jesus. He then stayed with Jesus for three years. The Christ then left the body when Jesus was on the cross. This was when Jesus became concerned that he was forsaken by God. This is also why He made the comment: “it is ﬁnished.” He knew the mission of the Christ was ﬁnished as far as sharing a body was concerned. The Christ would normally have this second type of overshadowing with one disciple at a time because He as an entity must project his consciousness into time and space.
The third stage of the second Coming will happen then in one of two ways. The Christ will either fully overshadow a disciple and work through him as he did with Jesus 2000 years ago, or if the people of earth advance enough in spiritual preparedness He will come in a body of his own that He does not have to share with a disciple. This would be preferable because He will not be limited by the free will of the disciple who owns the body and would thus be able to perform a much more powerful work than did even Jesus.
If circumstances advance so He can come in a body of His own then that will be a glorious day for the planet, but one shrouded in mystery for it is not yet revealed how or even if that will transpire. He could be born as a babe, manifest out of the blue in a fully materialized adult body or travel here from a foreign country (in a jet plane through the clouds) in a body that He is currently using. Exactly how He is going to pull this off is His decision alone and because of world expectation, this Second Coming puts a pressure upon Him that only an entity of His evolution could handle.
In the last coming He had enough problems dealing with a primitive people, but in this one He must work with a global society where the whole world will be able to examine Him on TV from their living rooms. The differences between then and now are overwhelming.
The scripture reads: “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” Rev 1:7
There are a lot of ways He could come in the clouds besides physically ﬂoating through them. In this age, as I said, he could ﬂy through the clouds in a plane and as He lands in an airport the image of Him could be visible to every eye who wants to look at a TV. Clouds could represent higher consciousness that would be seen by every eye to some degree.
Whatever the case, when all is said and done we will ﬁnd the prophesies are accurate, but events will not happen as the masses expect, just like last time.
So what does it mean that “all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him?” This is actually a reference to the Sign of the Son of man which is the major sign that His coming is near. New readers are advised to read in the archives about this or it may not make a lot of sense to you.
The Sign of the Son of Man was the explosion of the atomic bomb in 1945 which did indeed make all kindreds of the earth grieve and become gravely concerned about the future of the planet. From 1945 to the present, Stage One of the Second Coming has also been put into effect and much progress has been made.
Question: “How could those who “pierced him” be here to see Him when he comes?”
Isn’t it a ﬁtting masterpiece of the justice of God to have the very individuals who put the Lord of Light to death, for whom He prayed for forgiveness, to have these same individuals reincarnated and delivered to the same Christ, and greet him with a painful awareness of their sins? For some of these people (if they accept him) the Master will have great joy, like that of the Shepherd who found his lost sheep. Others will continue to follow the dark path.
Here are several other signs of the Master’s Coming.
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Matt 24:4-5
Has this prophecy been fulﬁlled?
“For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt 24:27
What is the fulﬁllment of this prophecy?
Here is another prediction: “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:9-11
Fundamentalists see only one way this can be fulﬁlled and that is to have Jesus come ﬂoating down in the air from the clouds. What could be another way this prediction could be fulﬁlled?
Most Bible believers believe that everyone on the earth will see Him at one time when he comes, but this scripture gives us a clue in the opposite direction. We are told in this scripture that circumstances around his Second Coming will be similar to His ascension as described here. How many here saw him go into heaven? Will a similar number experience the beginning of his return?
What is the fulﬁllment of this prophecy?
