What’s in a Name?
Question: If Satan’s name was Lucifer before the fall then what was the name of Jesus?
JJ: Lucifer is not a name but a classification of beings of light who laid the foundations of the earth. They were both Morning Stars, or Bringers of Light, or Lucifers as noted in Revelations:
“I (Jesus) am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” (Revelation 22:16)
Let us literally retranslate this:
“I am the root and the offspring of David, and Lucifer.”
Intelligence, we are told is “the light of truth” and in the beginning we were intelligences. Before creation there were great intelligences called the Sons of the Morning, or Morning Stars who were great carriers of light to the Sons of God.
It is interesting that if we use the name Lucifer in this age one conjures up some evil dark entity bent on destruction. But if we use the meaning behind the name of Lucifer then an entirely different image occurs. If we say he is a carrier of light to his fellowmen we tend to think more of Jesus than we do Satan. This is only natural, for all great souls are carriers of light.
Now here is something very startling to some. The name Lucifer and Jesus Christ have essentially the same meaning making them essentially the same name.
The name Jesus Christ literally means “anointed to deliver.” Jesus delivered us by acting as a carrier of light. When we take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ, we commit ourselves to assist in the great plan of salvation by becoming carriers of light (Lucifers) to assist those who have a lesser degree of light.
To attempt to get much light by identifying any being with a name in our language does little good for the true name of any being is the totality of his vibration. A name in English is a symbol of that vibration but the symbol reveals only an infinitesimal amount of the pure essence. To know the true name of another a person must become one with that person through a spiritual communion. This is one reason Jesus established the Sacrament. If done correctly we can then tune into the essence of Christ and recognize his true vibration and know his true name through touching spirit.
This will also give us power to recognize a fallen Lucifer who is no longer a carrier of light, but a prince of darkness.
“If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” Matthew 6:23
As we learn to know the God essence in each person, names will come to mind that reveal an aspect of that person. These aspects blend until we arrive at the name that is above “every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:” (Ephesians 1:21) — even the name of Jesus Christ.
There is no greater meaning behind any name than to carry out the meaning behind the name of Jesus Christ which is to assist in bringing light and deliverance to those who are seeking.
For a more detailed explanation of the name of Lucifer check out my previous writings on the subject. The important thing to realize is that the name/title Lucifer describes a divine being before there was any fall, not afterwards.
Question: The scriptures speak of the importance of hearing the voice of Christ. Could you elaborate?
The truth is that the voice of Christ refers to more than the voice of a certain entity. It refers to the inner voice that speaks to all who will tune in through the Spirit.
Also, when another speaks through the medium of Spirit the one who hears in the Spirit can tell from whence the message comes.
Soon there will come another gathering and the dividing line will be the voice itself. Those who hear the voice will gather and those who do not will stay where they are.
The gathering has already taken place on higher planes and that which is in heaven will one day manifest on earth.
The Beaver Principle
Question: You have taught about the Beaver Principle wherein ordinary humans are more capable than the Masters. Can you elaborate?
A r pulled a quote from the archives on the Beaver Principle. “The Beaver Principle.”
“The highest of the Masters who have overcome physical death would see themselves polarized as a teacher in a relationship with any of us, yet they still recognize that we can do certain things better than they can. For example, most of us in the human kingdom understand that we are of much higher intelligence overall than any animal. No animal would have any concept about building an automobile or spacecraft as man has done; but on the other hand, a human cannot build a beaver dam as well as a beaver. Beavers already have the knowledge to build them better and faster than we can. The relationship of the God Kingdom to man corresponds to the human kingdom and the animal.”
Every kingdom has its particular talents that allow it to focus on certain abilities that that it can do better than the lives above or below it.
When we become masters, we will take our attention off some of the things we do well now and learn some higher things. When this happens many of our current abilities will go below the threshold of our consciousness. We will appear to lose them, but will not lose them. Abilities that go below the threshold of consciousness are not lost, but can be quickly retrieved if attention is placed upon them.
A reader voiced confusion over the meaning and function of the soul to which I responded:
I think that if we harmonize our definition of terms that you will find yourself in agreement here.
It sounds like when you use the word soul you are thinking of the immortal part of ourselves which a Christian would call our Spirit. The closest thing to this in the lingo of the Ancient Wisdom would be the Monad, not the soul. This immortal part of yourself belongs to you and no other entity – even though it is linked to other lives.
Soul is the interplay between spirit and matter. Soul contact is achieved when the seeker learns to focus on that point between spirit and matter. This focus of attention opens a door to the higher worlds. When the seeker who understands this principle refers to “the soul” or receiving from “the soul” he can be referring to anything that comes to him through the door of the soul. Through the soul he can receive knowledge from the higher worlds or higher lives such as the Masters or his solar angel.
Jesus was speaking of solar angels when he said this:
“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10)
Each of us has a solar angel that has nurtured us as a heavenly mother and is a mediator between our monad (father in heaven) and our lower nature.
