Excerpt from the Phoenix Journal 12 – CRUCIFIXION OF THE PHOENIX
YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS
Let us speak of organized religion and how it often misleads humanity and puts forth ridiculous doctrines and meaningless rituals, spinning a web of confusion and fear, thereby clouding and perverting the word of God, in order to maintain control and power over the people.
True religion is spiritual religion and is a seeking after God. There are many aids and props which may be of help in the “focusing” of attention but they should only be offered to man and certainly not imposed upon him.
It is essential to seek the Truth of the One God, to learn of His true laws and to serve His Creation. But in order to learn and understand more about the Lord, most of you need guides or spiritual leaders for you cannot accept your own perfection. Therefore, the problem is to distinguish between the good teachers and the bad teachers, the true prophets and the false, I suppose you might say. How does one make this distinction? You ask this more than just about any other question—that is, unless you are already trapped into deafness.
Emmanuel gave you the exact answer—“YOU WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS.”
In other words, one must look to the actions, the fruits of those who would be teachers or guides. Those who preach the ONENESS OF GOD and the brotherhood/sisterhood of humanity, who, like the American Indians, “respect all worship of Him by others and show respect to such things as are held sacred by others”, who bring peace and unity to the world by sowing the seeds of love and compassion, patience and tolerance, and who practice what they preach by helping all in need, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, nationality—all “relations”, which, of course, is ALL. These ones are blessed and true “prophets”, the Peacemakers–whose guidance you must seek in your spiritual quest. Never the person–always the WORD!
Those who say that “their way” is the “only way”, who sow the seeds of hatred and violence, division and disharmony, who point out the differences rather than the similarities between you all, and even those who may preach love, but who practice otherwise, who fail to serve all equally or give to those in need: know them to be the false prophets of whom Jesus warned, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, the dividers of humanity and disrupters of the natural flow of Oneness, Unity and Harmony.
Ones of truth will always “allow” and “bless” but will never change of the pro-nouncements of the Laws of God or the Laws of The Creation as to truth. Ones of truth will never say they are the “only one” but will never vary from the truth that the Christed path is the only way unto the Oneness with God. He will not judge but neither will he bend from those truths which have been sent forth from God to guide his path. He will never take the credit of perfection or performance upon self but always act in the name of God Creator.
Only he has a right to call himself worthy, who lives in the light of God’s word brought to earth by prophets of all religions for only by being in the truth of God’s light and truth is one a prophet. Religions and associations are set up by man who then sets himself up as the decider of truth instead of leaving God’s word whole. Ignorance is the cause of religious conflicts from one doctrine to another if they claim their source is God. People talk and yet fail to realize the oneness in All. There is no difference between Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Baha’i or Native Indian. All are from the same mold. Only the veil of ignorance separates them. Ignorance has its roots in the ego, it does not see Him in all things but on a most petty and shallow level.
What is the best name, then, for God? ANYTHING YOU CAN USE TO REMEMBER HIM BY IS BEST: Jehovah, Om, Allah, Great Spirit, Wakan Tanka—whatever, for he knows thy heart-call, not the noise upon thy lips and lungs for those are of earth flesh. The heart soul is that which is of God and to that he always responds–for the call always compels the answer!
You must stop of the separating out of the divisions of the various doctrines and see that that which is wondrous and truth is within all. You must gather the essence of the great perfection from all truth for truth is always truth–always and 100 percent. Man can err and come unto God–man cannot turn from the truth of God and come unto God. If you turn away from the Laws of God and the Laws of The Creation and practice in the ways of Satan and evil, ye shall be left to thy evil and it shall consume of you for evil shall always consume of itself. You may, 100% of mankind, rewrite of the laws and vote upon them by democratic vote—it will change not a hair for changing of them does not make them changed. It only sinks you deeper into the lie for once knowing the truth of it you can never “unknow” of the truth. For another man to tell you a thing which is wrong is right, only makes you the fool if you follow in his stupidity.
The path requires discipline and the opening up unto knowledge and receiving of the truth and the practicing thereof through self-disciplined actions. No more “sitting and waiting” for it to fall over and about thee! None other can do it for you and you cannot do of it for another–each must carry his own.
HOW MUCH TIME FOR THE PLAYING?
Let us reason a bit together at the thing ye have been told. It is most obvious indeed that you now dwell in the Kali Age of Chaos—the time of the “Crucifixion of the Phoenix”.
But, the “sacred faith” will not be destroyed if it is truly of God, but those who preach the “doctrines of men for the commandments of God” and continue to sleep in the practice of evil in the breaking of the laws, will be swept away in the new revelations about to burst forth upon the world of men!
The mists of the dark cloud of Evil will be lifted and the Infinite Father will be revealed working in great and magnificent strokes; more compelling in terms of His Divine Love, more revealing in respect to the choice offered frail and willful humanity, infinitely more convincing and real to sceptical mankind! Truth will no longer be shrouded in mystery!
It was said unto you eons ago, how it shall be: “Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of the Christos, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith.” The “mystery” will be completely revealed when the earth will be rent by earthquakes and the secret places are secret no more and will render up that which has been stored against this day.
The “mystery of mysteries” will be revealed at the sounding of the great trumpet. The earth will reap its reward because through countless ages the thoughts of evil men have created a vibration that must find expression now on a physical plane. The thoughts of those in the “Light” have created a frequency that will literally open the secret chambers and temples of remote antiquity! As the vibrations sealed and protected the tombs, they can also open the tombs in the “fullness of time”! For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known in that day.
In Revelations it is said, “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.”
It shall come to be, “When man again shall conquer the ocean, and fly in the air on wings like the birds, when he has learned to harness the lightening, then shall the time of warfare begin. Great shall the battle be between the forces, great the warfare of darkness and light. Nation shall rise against nation, using the dark forces to shatter the earth. Weapons of force shall wipe out the Earth-men, until half of the races of men shall be gone. Then shall come forth the Sons of the Morning, and give their edict to the children of men, saying: „O men, cease from thy striving against thy brother, only thus can ye come to the Light. Cease from thy unbelief, O my brother, and follow the path and know ye are right”‘. (The Emerald Tablets)
Oh, ye ask—Emerald Tablets? We have yet to see if one hears the call and responds regarding the Emerald Tablets. For this writing we shall leave it lay and tarry a while to see who comes forth to share with All. If there be none, we shall give it unto this scribe–so be it.
One great cycle of time is now ending–shortly a new cycle begins. The Christ knocks on the door of the heart of the world. Those that bid him enter shall be the “Children of the New Covenant”.
Those who thought that perfection could be attained by eliminating and smothering all desire will learn a great universal truth: Man is never judged by the things that he does not do. He is judged by how he lives, what he thinks, says, and does; never by his non-action in Ignorance. Ah, but ye must remember that sometimes “non-action” is indeed the greatest of “action”!
Man is not accountable in truth in matters of Spirit, except unto himself and God within self—the God that stands at the Christed entry-way unto the highest realms; the Christ that rules your “System”! Therefore, the authority for this work lies in the fact that future discoveries will prove the information contained herein to be accurate, indeed, as well as that which fills our other Journals. There are great and wondrous experiences which lie ahead as the mysteries come into truth. Besides discoveries made within the earth from the treasure places, great finds will be made in science. Soon there will be unfolded the instruments fashioned for the purpose, he will explore the unknown realms of light, colour, sound and consciousness—but it remains to un-fold in its proper sequence when no man shall take it from another.
You are in the final closing of the Age of Old and then God and Man can be regenerated and reunited and the New can rise again from the ashes of the destruction of the Old. First we must endure the Crucifixion before we can experience the truth of Resurrection. First must come the ashes. So be it.
Let us close this portion for the body wearies from the longness of the hours. Ye shall have the gift of rest and peace.
In love and appreciation I stand aside that we might close.
I AM HATONN, SALU AND GOOD-EVENING.
