The Sign of Signs
Even though your interpretations of the Sign of the Son of Man did not go in the direction I had planed, the group, as usual, came up with some great material.
Becky related a dream that touched me. I think parts of it were symbolic, but all of it contained truth. The physical body of the One universal God is the Universe itself and those who minister to the various worlds as Gods and Christs are “one” with the one God and thus all peoples in all worlds are visited in their time by the presence of God.
The dream has another interesting statement from Jesus and that is basically that the scriptures would be fulﬁlled as written. It is also interesting that when Jesus appeared to disciples after the resurrection and they seemed to doubt He criticized them for not believing all that the prophets had written. Remember we said that the scriptures have up to seven levels of interpretation. The prophetic scriptures are deeper than the teaching or historical scriptures.
Now let’s get back to the scripture. The reason we are going over to Matthew chapter twenty four is because it sheds additional light on the “ﬁre from heaven.”
This chapter tells us about an anti Christ character that was prophesied by Daniel: a man of ﬁerce countenance who would try and destroy the holy people (the Jews, who were holy to Daniel. See Daniel Chapter eight). Who was the man of ﬁerce countenance who tried to destroy the Jews? Hitler, of course. And is it not true that if the days of Hitler had not been shortened the elected Jews would have been completely destroyed just as it says in Matthew 24?
Now let us read verse 29-30:
IMMEDIATELY after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. Matt 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matt 24:29-30
Now substitute again the word uranium for “heaven” and read the verses again. Do we now understand why this sign would make all the people of the earth “mourn?” Remember Jesus was using language of 2000 years ago to describe this future event. Nevertheless, it is amazing how accurate he was. You might want to dust off that Bible and read all of chapter 24 of Matthew.
We have had some good comments on the Sign of the Son of Man. Even though I am not guiding the group toward the astrological side of the interpretation, we must always remember that all inspired writings have several levels. The astrological view is certainly a helpful one, and I would encourage the astrologers in the group to post their views when they see them helpful. Sometimes the vision on one level helps us to see more clearly on another level.
There seems to be some difﬁculty in seeing “uranium” as a substitute for heaven. First remember that this is not a black and white thing. One must use the intuition to see where the play on words was meant as an intention of the Spirit. For instance, we wouldn’t normally pray to Our Father in Uranium (heaven) even though God is in all things including uranium.
It is not coincidence, however, that the word “heaven” and “uranium” are so closely linked. Another interesting word from the same Greek origin is the planet “Uranus.” Now the interesting thing about Uranus is that it rules Aquarius, and what new age is it we are passing into?
So let us look at these three phrases: Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven; Sign of the Son of Man in Uranium; Sign of the Son of Man in Uranus. All of these are full of meaning. Let’s ﬁrst clarify an important point. The sign of the Son of Man is not the actual Second Coming, but a great sign that the coming of Christ is at hand.
Let me quote a previous article illustrating the correspondence between uranium and the resurrection of Christ:
“The Christ represented the positive nucleus of the atom. His cruciﬁxion and burial represented the fall of spiritual matter into a state where illusion and death becomes a real concern. In this state the central sun (Son) of the atom has its great light hidden by a veil of negative energy that becomes a tomb hiding a great reality.
“Atoms evolve similar to humans in that as they progress they add seven chakras or electron layers. When the seventh becomes active the atom becomes radioactive and may even glow in the dark like radium. The radioactive human will also shine like the sun during certain initiations as Jesus did on the Mount of Transﬁguration.
“Finally when the atom and the human complete their evolution the dark tomb of matter can no longer hold them and that which seemed to be dead splits the tomb of death in two and the pure spiritual energy escapes. In the case of the atom a certain percentage of matter is translated into pure energy or spirit and in the case of the Christ the inner life stands revealed as pure spirit and is no longer limited by physical restrictions.”
Thus we see that the splitting of uranium is a sign of the resurrection of the Son of man. It also tells us how the second beast (the U.S.) “made ﬁre to come down out of heaven in the sight of men,” for when we substitute uranium for heaven this begins to make sense.
In this chapter (Matt 24) Jesus talks about the abominable person who causes desolation. He is quoting here from the book of Daniel and Daniel talked about this antichrist who would attempt to destroy the Holy people. To Daniel the holy people were his people, the Jews.
There is only one time in history that an antichrist attempted to completely destroy the Jews and that was in Hitler’s Germany. Someone asked about the other tribulations and persecutions mentioned in the Book of Revelation. John’s book here concentrates more on the Christian persecutions, but in Matthew 24 Jesus is talking about the Jewish people as evidenced by the reference to Daniel.
Keeping this in mind let’s look a little deeper:
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened (or “obscure”), and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.” Matt 24:29
Men have been perplexed by this scripture for two thousand years and every time there has been an eclipse, or the moon is obscured, or we have a meteor shower, there are those who arise and tell us that Jesus is coming. The key to the meaning of the verse is in the Greek word for “heaven” which is OURANOS. The element Uranium was named after this as we have said. For proof one merely has to check any good dictionary and it will trace uranium to OURANOS.
What happens when the powers of Uranium are shaken??? The atomic bomb. This makes much more sense than the thought that the very powers of God in heaven will be shaken.
Now we can read in the verse a totally different light;
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days (the defeat of Hitler who was destroying the Jews) shall the sun be darkened (the blast is so bright it obscures the sun), and the moon shall not give her light (a victim cannot even see the moon), and the stars shall fall from heaven (stars shall ﬂy from uranium – it will be very sensational and bright), and the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (how the atomic blast works).
It is interesting how almost “immediately” after the extermination of the Jews ended this great sign was given just as predicted. Now we can understand the mystery of the next verse: “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven (the atomic bomb was the sign that the coming of Christ is sure and fairly soon): and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matt 24:30
Many read this verse and think that it means that people will see Jesus coming and mourn because of their sins, but notice it says “all” the tribes (Greek: races) shall mourn. Surely someone must be happy to see Jesus appear. The sign is not Jesus at all, for his appearance will bring happiness and peace to many, but the prophecy was fulﬁlled to the letter when the atomic blast went off in Hiroshima. All the races of the entire earth “mourned” and began to fear that the fate of Hiroshima may eventually be their own.
A more accurate description of the atomic bomb cannot be given than “clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Another description is: 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.” We must keep in mind that when Matthew wrote this account he had to describe an event that was beyond the imagination of man at that time.
All this sounds like good correspondence, but one is inclined to ask “Why is a dreadful thing like the atomic bomb called the sign of the Son of man? Was he not the Prince of Peace?” The splitting of the atom and the releasing of great energy is a perfect correspondence to the resurrection of Christ. The life force of the atom was released to enter the way of higher evolution just as the tomb of the Christ burst opened and released the Son of God. The splitting of the tomb of material matter is the one sure sign that the Son of man is the Son of God, and the knowledge given to man to split the tomb of the atom is the greatest revelation given to man to date. It is a sign that we are not far from overcoming death as Christ did.
The power of the atom does not have to be a frightening thing if it is understood and used by Israelites. Many fairly intelligent people are against any use of atomic power, but the time will come when it will be used wisely for the beneﬁt of mankind. In addition, many other sources of energy will be opened up for us in the New Age and many of the theories of Nicola Tesla will be veriﬁed.
The next verse has the gathering message. We will repeat it again: “And he shall send his angels (messengers) with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other… This generation shall not pass, till all these things are fulﬁlled.” Matt 24:31, 34
The generation that saw the ﬁrst atomic bomb shall not all pass away until the Christ shall again manifest on the earth. There have been many methods used for predicting the return of Christ, and hundreds of dates set. All of them have been wrong. Some time ago I read about a small sect in Arizona who had arrived at the date and they sold all their belongings and went up on a hill and waited. Of course, Jesus did not swoop them up to heaven as expected. After this their undaunted leader discovered a three day error in his calculations and they waited again, but to no avail. But were they discouraged? Never! They are still expecting Jesus to come after them at any minute. The Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses and many others have set dates for his appearance and they have all failed.
On the other hand, when he does appear, he will have to pick a certain day, and what if by accident some religious group happened to pick at or around that day for their prophecy? Would the Christ decide to take up his abode with them and no one else because they chose the lucky day? Most likely Christ would ﬁnd their company so boring and unenlightened he would ignore them if at all possible.
A popular prediction date at present is the year two thousand, give or take a year or two. The reasoning behind this date is that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh, and the scriptures say that a day is equal to a thousand years (II Peter 3:8). According to the Bible Jesus came 4029 years after Adam. However, most Christians use 4,000 even. Thus they ﬁgure that the day of rest, the thousand years of peace, the millennium, will begin at about 2,000.
2000 AD is the most popular, and looked for date for his coming that has ever been presented to public consciousness, even more so than was 1000 AD, a thousand years ago, but again people will be disappointed. It will be some time before he does come. A people has to be prepared who are able to appreciate what he will teach. Why would He want to come when there is no one prepared for what he has to offer? We have just barely begun to appreciate his message of love as He taught it 2000 years ago.
He will come, however, before all the generation who witnessed the ﬁrst atomic bomb explode, passes away. We all hope that he will manifest among us in a physical body but if the world is not properly prepared we may have to settle for him overshadowing certain disciples and working through them until greater preparation is made.
