Son of Man and Seven Inner Churches of Asia

The theme of ancient systems of inner cultivation and ascension continues from last week's rapture with a deeper look into the Book of Revelation. Book of Revelation is the final book of the New Testament, an apocalyptic parable written by John of Patmos, revealing the luminous path of the Son of Man and the Kingdom of Heaven within.

While the text is often taken for a prediction of future events, the events to come are primarily internal in nature — so much so that the narrative even features Son of Man in sequential future forms, inspiring each "earlier" church to move forward. The Book of Revelation is a revelation on how to build the Kingdom of Heaven within; with parallels in mystic traditions the world around.

"If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man. (1 Corinthians 15)
Today's studies cover Revelation chapters 1-3, featuring John's vision of Son of Man and the mystery of seven churches, lampstands, angels and stars. In these chapters, Son of Man addresses the seven churches of Asia, dictating a series of approvals, cautions, and blessings for those who persevere in spirit — until claiming the everlasting crown of victory.

The last three of the seven inner churches (in chapter three) have been re-ordered for ease of sequential reading from ☺☺☺ Heaven to ☻☻☻ Earth. This is a short illustrated journey into the stars of the churches, although much remains to be said. Suffice it to say that every good child of luminosity should diligently attend the seven churches daily!

Blessing: "Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth." (Revelation 1:4)

Background: "On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, which said: 'Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea...
   "The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.'"
(Revelation 1:10-11,19)

Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:20)
☺☺☺ [+++] Heaven — Son of Man (Rev. 1:12-16)

Luminous Christ: "I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone like a Son of Man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance."

"Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed — in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: 'Death has been swallowed up in victory.'" (1 Corinthians 15:51-54)

Very interesting the conclusion is the seven Churches which help get to heaven and heaven is within you!!!! Thus the 7 seven churches are your chakras!! The question i have Markus is how the 7 stars or the 7 angels which are both the same. Do you pray to them to open your chakra as with the CHakras we think of balance etc to open them???? Or say them outloud in a deep tone!!!
WRITE ME BACK ON MY FACEBOOK @MATTATAO take care and thank you!
