People ask me when Armageddon will happen, and on this point the evidence is clear: the Biblical Armageddon never will happen. I wrote on this topic two years ago in a post entitled Apocalyptic Nonsense, so I won’t rehash it here; but you might read that post if you are not yet clear about the fact that the notion of an end-times war is the antithesis of everything Jesus came to teach us.
Until recent events in my own life, I believed that all the Apocalyptic nonsense in the Gospels was only later corruptions that we could just ignore; but I realize now that the Christian councils co-opted and embellished a genuine warning from Jesus. Parts of those Apocalyptic Gospel passages do sound like Him! And in light of modern evidence, it is plain to see that what the councils built upon was a genuine warning about the Tribulation that would attend the coming of the Kingdom of God on earth.
Jesus talks about the Kingdom of Heaven thirty times in the Gospel Book of Matthew, and the Kingdom of God as much as fifty times through all four Gospels. At one time I believed these terms meant different things, but I have been given to understand by those that we used to think were dead that they both refer to the rapid elevation of human consciousness on this planet. And we know that elevation is happening now. So the process of bringing the Kingdom of God on earth has begun in our lifetime! And therefore the Tribulation that Jesus told us would herald its birth is soon upon us.
So I feel now a pressing need to share with you some of what you will need to know in order to navigate this difficult time and assist in the arrival of a glorious new world. I resist doing this! I would rather tell you about the afterlife flowers in colors never seen on earth, and the fact that they give off not just a glorious scent but also loving energies that feed our bodies. There is so much that is beyond-belief wonderful about our universal eternal home that the last thing I want to do is tell you what is coming now on earth. But Jesus warned us. And we have lately come to know enough about how reality works to know why He so urgently warned us! He was preparing us to deal with what he called the “birth pangs” that would be attendant to our raising of the consciousness of this planet sufficiently to accomplish our triumph over negativity and the advent of the Kingdom of God on earth.
As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.” (MT 24:3-12)
It astonishes me now to realize how accurate Jesus is about this, and ours is the first generation that even could have known what He was talking about. I swear, I am hitting my head as I write this! The Lord won’t need to come again, since of course He never left. And the Gospel teachings went through a two-step translation from Aramaic to Greek and from Greek to English so we have to assume some distortions. But still, this passage is right on the money! Consider:
And as for that last frightening paragraph above, in order for you to understand why the Kingdom of God cannot come on earth without these birth pangs, you will need to know more about what we might call the physics of consciousness. There is a lot more to know about how it works, but this much should let us begin our discussion; and if you want more, I have written about consciousness here, here, here, and here. I apologize for having included some snark, but spending your life waiting for mainstream science to start looking at the non-material truth and coming to realize in old age that it won’t happen in your lifetime does tend to make you somewhat cranky!
Our efforts to understand the greater reality have shown us that the base creative energy which continuously manifests this universe is what you and I experience as human consciousness. And our minds are all part of that infinitely creative and infinitely loving base consciousness! Your own mind is central to the mind of God. As Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” (LK 17:21)
Consciousness is a form of energy, so it vibrates. Consciousness exists in a range of vibrations, from the lowest (which is fear, anger, hatred, and the other negative emotions) to the highest (which is perfect love). At its highest vibration consciousness has infinite power, while at its lowest vibration it has no power. We come to earth to raise our personal vibrations away from fear and negativity and toward ever more perfect love, and in order to do that we must exercise free will. The problem is that having free will gives us the ability to choose fear and negativity over love, and because in every generation some people have made that choice, apparently humankind has literally created most of the ambient fear and rage that so grievously oppresses us now.
I don’t know much about the low-vibration pollution that some out-of-body travelers tell us can be seen from the higher dimensions as a visible sludge that now coats this planet. Apparently a lot of it is just people who have made such awful choices that they have transformed themselves into something like evil incarnate; but for our purposes it doesn’t matter what these low-vibration entities are. We only know that they exist, and they have little power but they can nevertheless oppress the minds of people who are not guarding themselves against their influence. Jesus called these troublesome negative entities “demons,” and He often removed them from susceptible people.
Our urgent problem now is the fact that low-vibration entities feed on fear, anger, and hatred, so they must at all costs prevent the raising of humankind’s consciousness vibration toward more perfect love. Until recently, these nasties were able to retard most people’s spiritual growth with laughable ease, since no one even knew what we were fighting! But we are told now that the consciousness vibration of this planet has sunk to the point where very advanced beings must intervene to ensure that the end of the age begins now. Without their help, they predict that we face extinction within the next two centuries. And there won’t be a Biblical Apocalypse, with Jesus returning to begin His thousand-year reign; but instead we will bitterly peter out and leave behind a ruined planet.
This is the first of three planned blog posts. Next week I will help you see the interplay between love and fear in human history, and will demonstrate how that war continues in the world and in all our lives. Then in two weeks I will tell you what little I know about the inter-dimensional rescue effort that is now underway. I will point out some of the efforts being made by nasties to foil it, and will show you how you can protect yourself from their influence.
The choice is yours! You may not be convinced that I am right, but since what I will ask you to do to help to bring the Kingdom of God on earth will be spiritually healthy and enjoyable and will vastly improve your life, you have nothing to lose and a world to save if you are willing to gamble that I might be right. And you do have the power to work wonders! The humanity that urgently needs your help is everyone you love and your grandchildren’s grandchildren.
