"It came to pass, when the sun rose in the east, thereafter then through the First Mystery, which existed from the beginning, on account of which the universe hath arisen, out of which also I am myself now come, not in the time before my crucifixion, but now, -- it came to pass, through the command of that mystery, that there should be sent me my Light-vesture, which it had given me from the beginning, and which I had left behind in the last mystery, that is the four-and-twentieth mystery from within without, -- those which are in the order of the second space of the First Mystery. That Vesture then I left behind in the last mystery, until the time should be completed to put it on, and I should begin to discourse with the race of men and reveal unto them all from the beginning of the Truth to its completion, and discourse with them from the interiors of the interiors to the exteriors of the exteriors and from the exteriors of the exteriors to the interiors of the interiors. Rejoice then and exult and rejoice more and more greatly, for to you it is given that I speak first with you from the beginning of the Truth to its completion."
The Sun of Midnight guides the Initiates in the Superior Worlds.
The Initiates must know the symbolic movements of the Sun of Midnight.
Sunrise is equivalent to the birth, to the rising, and to the manifestation of Him, etc.
Sunset allegorizes the death of something, the descent of something, etc.
The Sun, with complete splendor in midday, allegorizes complete plenitude, complete triumph, success of such or such, etc.
We are emphatically referring to the Sun-, the , the Astral Sun.
The Mystics see the Astral Sun. He guides them along the Path of the Razor's Edge.
When the clouds of the sky are covering the Astral Sun, this signifies that the animalis still very strong within the Initiate.
It is necessary, it is urgent, to dissolve the animal, to reduce it to cosmic dust.
The Sun-, ascending through the First Mystery, signifies action of the Lord by the will of the Father.
The same Universe in which we live, move, and have our Being, emerged and came into existence when the Sun ascended through the First Mystery.
It was by the will of the Ancient of Days that the Sun ascended through the First Mystery.
The Intimatecomes into manifestation not in the time before the hour of His crucifixion, but now.
It is here and now that the Lord must be crucified.
The Lord is crucified within us.
The Lord must live the entire Cosmic Drama within ourselves, just as it is written within the Four Gospels, here and now.
Nevertheless, it is written that we must previously incarnate Him, you know this.
However, it is necessary to make the following warning:
Take heed that no man shall deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying I am the; and shall deceive many. - (Read Matthew 23:4-5, New Testament)
The Venusticis frightfully difficult.
The Intimateis incarnated in the Venustic .
It is very rare to find someone who has succeeded in incarnating Him.
Nevertheless, there are some sincerely mistaken ones who think the best of themselves.
They say, "I have incarnated Him, I am the."
Such people are cheating themselves, as well as others.
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore, if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert go not forth: Behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. - (Read Matthew: 24:23-27)
The Vesture of Light of the Intimatewas originally granted to Him. Nevertheless, it must be elaborately woven upon the Loom of God, in the Four-and-twentieth Mystery of the Great Work.
The Vesture of Light of the Intimate, a symbol of all the powers, is in the Father's power. The Father is the First and the Last of the Mysteries.
The Intimate, when incarnated in a simple and humble human being, will use his sacred Vesture in the Mystery.
Profane people will never know the Vesture of Light.
The Intimateis covered by the humble of someone.
People can never recognize the incarnated.
The Intimateis the Instructor of the world.
The incarnated Instructor of the world must discourse with the human race, and reveal to them the beginning of the Truth until its completion.
The Adept who has incarnated Him will know how to love Him within himself, and he will never say, "I am the."
The Master who has incarnated Him will worship the Lord and will serve as an instrument for Him.
The incarnated Lord will discourse with the human beings from the interiors of the interiors to the exteriors of the exteriors, and from the exteriors of the exteriors to the interiors of the interiors.
All of this signifies that the Lord can helpof and the human .
The incarnated Instructor of the world can instruct not only the human persons, but also the Beings of those persons, and finally,of .
To help the exteriors of the exteriors signifies complete help in the order of all things.
To help the interior of the interior signifies complete instruction toof .
The Incarnated Intimatenot only helps, but moreover He helps to help.
Only the Adepts of Perfection have incarnated Him.
Nevertheless, I tell you, be vigilant, because in these times of the end, there are many who presume that they are Adepts of Perfection.
Beware of false prophets.
"For this cause have I chosen you verily from the beginning through the First Mystery. Rejoice then and exult, for when I set out for the world, I brought from the beginning with me twelve powers, as I have told you from the beginning, which I have taken from the twelve saviours of the Treasury of the Light, according to the command of the First Mystery. These then I cast into the womb of your mothers, when I came into the world, that is those which are in your bodies today. For these powers have been given unto you before the whole world, because ye are they who will save the whole world, and that ye may be able to endure the threat of the rulers of the world and the pains of the world and its dangers and all its persecutions, which the rulers of the height will bring upon you. For many times have I said unto you that I have brought the power in you out of the twelve saviours who are in the Treasury of the Light. For which cause I have said unto you indeed from the beginning that ye are not of the world. I also am not of it. For all men who are in the world have gotten their souls out of [the power of] the rulers of the aeons. But the power which is in you is from me; your souls belong to the height. I have brought twelve powers of the twelve saviours of the Treasury of the Light, taking them out of the portion of my power which I did first receive. And when I had set forth for the world, I came into the midst of the rulers of the sphere and had the form of Gabriel the angel of the aeons; and the rulers of the aeons did not know me, but they thought that I was the angel Gabriel."
The Twelve Apostles, the Twelve Powers, are within us, here and now.
The Twelve Apostles are twelve autonomous parts of our Being.
The Twelve Powers, the Twelve, are twelve self-conscious parts, and even independent parts of our own Being.
The Twelve Powers, which are the Twelve Apostles of the Innerare wisely related with the twelve faculties of the human being.
However, we must make a clear differentiation between the Twelve Powers and the twelve faculties.
Unquestionably, during the Cosmic Manifestation,within each one of us is the multiplicity within the Unity.
All of these autonomous and self-conscious parts ofmust work in the inner .
The innerof each one of the autonomous and self-conscious parts of is more than impossible, as long as all the undesirable elements that we carry within our interior are not disintegrated.
The Twelve Powers are only twelve parts of the many autonomous and self-conscious parts of.
Whosoever perfects the highest part ofreceives for such a motive the degree of Ishmesch.
It is not possible to perfect the highest part ofwithout the radical dissolution of the inhuman elements that we carry within our interior.
Within the interior of our Being, James is the blessed Master of the Great Work.

The Mercury of the Secret Philosophy is the very foundation of the Great Work.
The Intimateand the Twelve Powers reside within us, here and now.
Unquestionably, the Twelve Powers are poured by the Intimateinto the womb of the .
Each one of us has our own.
The Twelve Powers must dwell within our bodies.
This is possible only by disintegrating all the undesirable psychic elements that we carry within our interior.
The Twelve Apostles, the fundamental parts of, are always slandered and persecuted by the perverse ones. This is known by every illuminated Master.
The historical Jesusand His Twelve Apostles symbolize the Intimate and the Twelve Powers incarnated in every true human being.
There exist Twelve Saviors who symbolize the twelve zodiacal constellations.
The Twelve Powers within each human being are related with the Redeemer of such and such constellation.
All the Masters have succeeded in engendering their, or better said crystallizing them within the human person, thanks to the teachings of the Twelve Saviors.
Each one of the Twelve have come to the world in order to help humanity.
It is possible to crystallize thewithin ourselves by dissolving the animal .
We need to dissolve the undesirable psychological elements in order to crystallize thewithin ourselves.
We must convert ourselves into pure.
With patience you will possess your.
This is possible based on conscious work and voluntary sufferings.
Theof the people reside in a superior level of .
Theis the conjunction of all the forces, powers, virtues, essences, etc., that crystallize within us when the entire animal has been dissolved.
Each time that a psychological defect is dissolved, a virtue, a power, etc., crystallizes within our interior.
The complete dissolution of all the defects implies the integral crystallization of thewithin ourselves.
If the water does not boil at one hundred degrees, that which must be crystallized does not crystallize, and that which must be dissolved is not dissolved.
In similar form, we say that it is necessary to pass through great emotional crisis in order to dissolve psychological defects and crystallize the.
The Angel Gabriel is the Regent of the Moon and is related with the Lunar Sphere.
Jesus, the Intimate, is the divine Sun within us.
"It came to pass then, when I had come into the midst of the rulers of the aeons, that I looked down on the world of mankind, by command of the First Mystery. I found Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptizer, before she had conceived him, and I sowed into her a power which I had received from the little IAO, the Good, who is in the Midst, that he might be able to make proclamation before me and make ready my way, and baptize with the water of the forgiveness of sins. That power then is in the body of John."
John the Baptizer is the same Elias reincarnated.
The great IAO is the power from theitself. The little IAO is the power from the human being.
The great IAO is the power from the Super-Man. The minor IAO is the power from Man.
The Inner John is inside each one of us, here and now.
Every Initiate must encounter the part of his Being which is called John the Baptizer.
The encounter with John always takes place in the Secondof the Fire.
The encounter with John always takes place in Eden.
John is the precursor who prepares the path to our Intimate.
The historic John the Baptizer allegorizes the Interior John the Baptizer within each one of us.
"Moreover in place of the soul of the rulers which he was appointed to receive, I found the soul of the prophet Elias in the aeons of the sphere; and I took him thence, and took his soul and brought it to the Virgin of Light, and she gave it over to her receivers; they brought it to the sphere of the rulers and cast it into the womb of Elizabeth. So the power of the little IAO, who is in the Midst, and the soul of the Prophet Elias, they were bound into the body of John the Baptizer. For this cause then were ye in doubt aforetime, when I said unto you; 'John said: I am not the Christ,' and ye said unto me: 'It standeth written in the scripture: When the Christ shall come, Elias cometh before him and maketh ready his way.' But when ye said this unto me, I said unto you: 'Elias verily is come and hath made ready all things, as it standeth written, and they have done unto him as they would.' And when I knew that ye had not understood that I had discoursed with you concerning the soul of Elias which is bound into John the Baptizer, I answered you in the discourse in openness face to face: 'If ye like to accept John the Baptizer: he is Elias, of whom I have said that he will come.'"
The Rulers of the Gnostic Church are true awakened Initiates.
The Spirit of Elias is also an Aeon, which means a Master of the Great Day. You know this.
The Virgin of Light, Stella Maris, theof John the Baptizer, is named by the Great Kabir Jesus.
The Savior delivered the Spirit of Elias to Stella Maris of John, and She delivered Him to Her Receivers. They brought him to the sphere of the Rulers of the Light and cast Him into the womb of Elizabeth.
In this manner, the little IAO, theof Light, and the Spirit of Elias were bound into the body of John the Baptizer.
Elias reincarnated in John the Baptizer. Thus, John is the living reincarnation of Elias.
