The Sabbath and Becoming

The Sabbath and Becoming

We have already spent considerable time studying the initiating One God (see The Molecular Relationship) and also the name which was given to Moses. The translation “I AM” is incorrect and misleading. In the Hebrew it reads: “I AM BECOMING.”

This is talked about a little in my book and quite extensively in previous posts.

I contend that it is important to discover the great lives who are our fairly immediate superiors for much of what is to be our destiny is in their hands.

Question: “Does keeping the Sabbath apply to all people or just to the children of Israel (Jews) or is the whole concept not applicable in today’s world? For instance Jesus broke the Sabbath and tried to show and explain that service, love and compassion for your brethren in certain circumstances was much more important than keeping the Sabbath.”

The principle behind the Sabbath is an eternal one and is always in effect. The ancient Hebrews and other peoples had to live by black and white rules which were a “schoolmaster” to the understanding of the “why” behind the rules.

This was why Jesus had such a clash with the religious rulers of his day. They were attempting a black and white obedience to law and Jesus sought to understand and incorporate the principle from which the law came.

Jesus enumerated the principle very well when he said:

“And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Mark 2:27-28

Quite plainly here Jesus told his critics that they were in error concerning the Sabbath for man was not made to be subservient to it, but the Sabbath instead was made for the benefit of humanity. The sons of men are therefore to be masters of the use of the Sabbath – the Sabbath is not to be the master of us.

We all realize that the Sabbath is a period of rest and it is generally recognized that a period of rest now and then is a good idea, but the principle goes deeper than that. The Sabbath period is actually a prime ingredient in the creation process itself. This is, of course, where we were first introduced to the Sabbath for we are told that God created the world in six periods and rested on the seventh period.

Preceding the creative process is a period of rest or stillness where the work to do is contemplated. The creator is not taking any physical action, but instead is in deep contemplation thinking of the benefits of past work and the work yet to be done. Then the effective creator will go forward and work on that which has been decided upon and labor for a period approximately equal to six times the contemplation period.

This is where many visionaries fail. They go forth and work one of two times the contemplation period and quit because the vision has not yet materialized. Then they create a new vision and fail again.

“He who endures to the end will be saved” means that one must work through the six periods of creation to be delivered from failure.

A key to understanding here is that the first period of creation may be of a different time period than the second and the second different than the third, etc, but if one understands the six periods he will always materialize his heart’s desire. I hope to elaborate on these s ix periods soon.

After the six periods are over a creation will be completed. The creator must take another period of rest and contemplate the value of the completed work. Then he must examine his creation as did God in Genesis and declare the work to be “good” or not worth keeping and revise or start over.

Question: Was the assistance of the Lord of Saturn with the Jewish race due to the fact that the Jews were not progressing fast enough in this solar system?

The main reason for the stern relationship was because of their history before the creation of the present life, but some of it was from this age also. The work of Jehovah with the Hebrews was an experiment with several reasons behind it. One of them was to stimulate their consciousness in the hope that they would accept the higher teachings of Christ when he would come.

Unfortunately, the leaders were still struck in their past worship of rules and regulations when he came and rejected him, though some of the common people gathered around him. Now the hope is that the Jews will be ready for change when the “second coming” takes place.

Some of the Old Testament are revelations from Jehovah/Michael, some (such as Psalms) are from the prophets own souls and others (such as Ecclesiastics) are just good creative writing.

The stone tablets of Moses that were supposed to be written by the finger of God were really written by Moses himself. The reason the word was passed down that they were written by God is because Moses was in a translated, or God State of consciousness, when he wrote them. You will remember that when he came down from the mount that his face glowed like the sun.

Question: Some people believe that the earth’s Ancient of Day’s came from Venus. Is Venus a sacred planet like Saturn? Was our Ancient of Days the son aspect of the father/son relationship with the Lord of Venus?”

Yes, our logos did come here from Venus approximately 23 million years ago. He arrived her with one hundred and four associates, or Kumaras, and together they laid the foundations of Shamballa made of etheric matter in the Gobi desert with extensions in other locations. Now that much of the foundation work is done there is only a molecule of seven Kumaras that remain from the original.

These Kumaras did not come from the physical planet Venus but from a higher spiritual globe which occupies it’s same space.

Venus is indeed a sacred planet on the Fifth Ray of Knowledge and is more evolved than is the earth in the total scheme of things. In some ways the earth, however is male to Venus because it is in this round giving more to her than she is to us, but in terms of evolution Venus is more progressed.

Our Ancient of Days is more of a brother to the Logos of Venus and both are disciples of the Solar Logos.

The Expanding God

Question: “What higher consciousness or awareness is there for God to become?”

As far as HAVAH and IAM vs. BECOMING, I have already written extensively on this. This was an interesting question:

I will answer that there is endless higher consciousness and awareness for God to Become.

Why does mankind assume that we have a no-growth stagnant God ruling the universe? When you think about it there is no reason to think so.

It is a scientific observation that the universe itself is expanding. If so, would not God’s consciousness expand with it? Would God not grow with a growing universe? Does God not change as the universe changes?

God Itself does indeed evolve and have and does “all things new” as is written in the scriptures.

The life of God experiences newness and evolves with the birth of each child, with the falling in love of each young couple and with the appearance of each new world. When the humble seeker reaches out to God, God reaches out to him and the two who become one and experience that which has never in all eternity been felt in exactly this way before.

The time will come, trillions of years hence when this universe will reach a relative perfection to a degree that even God cannot improve upon it. At that time, this cosmos will lay the foundation for a future one, and this future universe will take God and all the rest of us into an experience and newness that the highest Logos cannot at present imagine.

Notes on the Sabbath

Notes on the Sabbath

Comment from H. P. Blavatsky

That the word “Sabbath” had a mystic significance is shown in the contempt shown by Jesus for the Sabbath day, and by what is said in Luke xviii. 12. Sabbath is there taken for the whole week. (See Greek text where the week is called Sabbath. “I fast twice in the Sabbath.”) Paul, an Initiate, knew it well when referring to the eternal rest and felicity in heaven, as Sabbath; “and their happiness will be eternal, for they will ever be (one) with the Lord and will enjoy an eternal Sabbath.” (Hebrew iv. 2.) Secret Doctrine Vol 1 Pg 240

It is interesting that the Greek word from when the English translation comes did not always refer to a certain day. Take note of these scriptures where the Greek SABBATON is used which is the same translated as Sabbath throughout the New Testament.

Luke 18:12: I fast twice in the week (SABBATON), I give tithes of all that I possess. 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week (SABBATON), when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Now upon the first day of the week, (SABBATON), very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. Luke 24:1

Upon the first day of the week (SABBATON), let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. I Cor 16:2

Here it sounds like Paul is referring to three consecutive days as three Sabbaths.

Acts 17:1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

Acts 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,

Acts 17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

Maybe the variety of uses of the word is the reason Paul told us to not judge people on how they interpret their Sabbath days:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days. Col 2:16

Some think the early Mormons recognized Saturday as the Sabbath, but the record reveals otherwise:

We found a number in the neighborhood still believing, and now anxious to be baptized. We appointed a meeting for the Sabbath, and on the afternoon of Saturday we erected a dam across a stream of water, which was convenient, for the purpose of there attending to the ordinance of baptism; but during the night a mob collected and tore down our dam, which hindered us from attending to the baptism on the Sabbath. We afterward found out that this mob had been instigated to this act of molestation by certain sectarian priests of the neighborhood, who began to consider their craft in danger, and took this plan to stop the progress of the truth; and the sequel will show how determinedly they prosecuted their opposition, as well as to how little purpose in the end. The Sabbath arrived, and we held our meeting. DHC 1:86

There are many references in Joseph’s recorded history in his own words referring to Sunday as the Sabbath. Here are three of many I could present if necessary.

October 5.–I started on a journey to the east, and to Canada, in company with Elders Rigdon and Freeman Nickerson, and arrived the same day at Lamb’s tavern, in Ashtabula; and the day following, the Sabbath, (Sunday, Oct 6) we arrived in Springfield DHC 1:416

On the 2nd, (Sunday, March 2, 1834) which was the Sabbath, Brother Parley P. Pratt preached, and I spoke in the evening; we had a good meeting. DHC 2:41

August 2nd, (1835) being the Sabbath, I preached a part of the day. (Aug 2, 1835 was on a Sunday) DHC 2:239

Principle 95 – The Sabbath

This entry is part 92 of 98 in the series Principles

Principle 95


The Sabbath

Few consider that the Sabbath is a principle. Instead, many merely see it as a strict commandment from God. It is pretty simple. God rested from his work on the seventh, or Sabbath day and we should follow his example and do likewise.

This commandment was taken so seriously in ancient times by the Jews that a person was put to death if found working on the seventh day.

After Christ the Christian church changed the day of rest from the seventh day to Sunday, the first day of the week. The Jews and some Christian rejected this. The Seventh Day Adventists and a number of other sects believe it to be an item of extreme importance that we rest and worship on Saturday. We just have to get the day right or God will be angry at us.

So the question is this: Is the Sabbath just a letter-of-the-law, black and white thing, or is there some type of principle involved?

It is interesting that key scriptures revolving around the Sabbath suggest that it is not to be taken so literally as some assume. After God had worked for six days of creation it is written:

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. Genesis 2:2

Here we see that God did two things on the seventh or Sabbath day. He ended his work and then he rested. And what was the ending of his work? Just a few verses later we learn that he created man as well as the Garden of Eden. So it appears that God continued working on into the seventh day and when finally finished He finally rested.

Even Jesus acknowledged that God worked on the Sabbath:

And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things (healings) on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. John 5:16-18

Jesus here acknowledged that he was working on the Sabbath and was just following the example set by God who also works on that day.

Paul also had problems with people being too literal and judgmental about the Sabbath:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Col 2:16-17

So Paul had a problem with his people judging whether or not a person was righteous by how exacting they followed the Sabbath. Interestingly, he said the holy days were merely a “shadow” of things to come.

What was it a shadow of? A clue is given in the fact that Sabbath and rest are virtually identical and interchangeable in the Hebrew.

And what is the promise given to the righteous? They are promised that they will enter into the “rest” of God. The promise of rest and heaven are very similar in the scriptures.

After a period of intense labor here on the earth we will enter into a Sabbath or rest in one of the “mansions” of the spiritual worlds. Similarly, keeping the true spirit of the Sabbath while here on the earth is taking a rest and enjoying the fruit of our labors.

Is there anything more heavenly or enjoyable than finishing a difficult, but useful work and then just kicking back and savoring a time of rest and reflection?

When we do this we catch a glimpse of heaven on earth.

The principle of the Sabbath is this.

We labor for six cycles and rest and reflect on the seventh. If the work needs a little fine tuning we can finish our work and fine tune it during a part of the seventh.

Is a Sabbath suppose to occupy just one seventh of our time?

Not necessarily, if we correspond it to Genesis. Notice that the six days of labor had a set beginning and an end. Each one had a morning and evening attached to it. Not so on the Sabbath. No morning and evening were mentioned which is to say that there is no specific beginning and end as there is to work. When entering into the true Sabbath the seeker takes whatever time he needs to rejuvenate, rest and prepare for the next cycle of endeavor.

Each of us knows internally when a time of rest is needed and sometimes, as they say, a change is a rest. If we tune into the rest that we need and take it when possible we will all live healthier and happier lives as well as living the true spirit of the Sabbath.
