The Holy Trinity – The Logos – The Elohim – Christ – and Jesus (phew!)

It was a great debate in Early Christianity: is the Father of the Old Testament the same as the Father Christ referred to? For many the God who says and eye for an eye is different from one who says love thy enemy, turn your cheek. Eventually, a majority vote decided that these were the same Father. But this does not settle Truth. Most Christians continued to have a different perspective until the Roman army was used to get them to agree.

The matter becomes much more deep when we look at the work of the School of Athens under Dionysius the Areopagite (which Justinian had shut down). Here we find a Heavenly Hierarchy defined where the Elohim are equated with the Exusiai. The Christ is from this hierarchy but he carries within himself, united, the Logos who is the Son in the Holy Trinity. That is why John’s Gospel says In the Beginning was the Logos and the Logos was with the God. A God was the Logos. This same one (a god, an elohim) was with the God in the beginning. The Greek adjective ton should appear whenever the definite article ‘The’ is meant.

Now all this grows profoundly in depth when we consider the Rosicrucian interpretation of Genesis. “Let us create Mankind in our image.” One (of the 7) Elohim creates Eve as an asexual human. She is fertilized from the spirit – from knowing. Another Elohim, Yahveh, creates Adam (both are Adam in that they are Mankind). From Eve without Adam comes Cain. From Eve with Adam comes Abel. Then Eve liberates herself through Lucifer from Yahveh by eating from the Tree of Knowledge. And by getting Adam to also eat from it, the process of sexuality begins – humanity moves from being asexual to being a sexual duality and this process continues through Cain and Abel until Seth is born. Seth represents the first humans who are the result of sexual relations, of the woman being fertilized by a man as he is the first whose likeness is that of his parents. Heredity begins as does reincarnation.

It is important to study why Freemasons look back to Cain as their founder. Abel tended sheep while Cain tilled the soil. Profound. Look at the difference in the verbs to tend and to till. Cain sought to spiritualize the earth. Abel accepted the abundance given by God. Abel, during the time before the duality of sexes was established, represents feminine wisdom. Cain represents masculine wisdom. For Freemasons, in doing their work, they had to be kept free of feminine wisdom. With the advent of the 20th Century, this came to an end.

Dionysius the Areopagite listed the Heavenly Hierarchy as follows:

Holy Trinity: Father – Son (Logos) – Holy Spirit

  1. Seraphim
  2. Cherubim
  3. Thrones
  4. Kyriotetes
  5. Dynamis
  6. Exusiai / Elohim
  7. Archai
  8. Archangeloi
  9. Angeloi
  10. Mankind to become this hierarchy

Much earlier in evolution, the being known as the Christ, through his development, became united with the Logos. When evolution was working on Mankind, Christ was at the level of an Elohim. Jesus from Matthew’s Gospel and Jesus from Luke’s Gospel are from the tenth. They make an incredible sacrifice to merge when the Luke-Jesus is 12 in the Holy of the Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem. This boy is now Jesus of Nazareth who will again make a sacrifice to offer his sheaths to the Elohim known as the Christ at baptism.

Although many Gnostics thought this was an example of an avatar incorporation, for early Christians this was a God becoming Man – penetrating all the way into the body so that even the physical body could be resurrected for all humans. Note that the physical body and its mineral/ash are not the same thing. At Easter, the stone was removed.

Heredity, Rakshasas, and Nostradamus

Expulsion-from-EdenWith Adam and Eve, original sin enters which consisted of one being dissimilar to the generation which had gone before.  Lucifer had intended from his nature to speed along human evolution; to give to humanity too soon the sense of an ego within the soul. Expulsion from Paradise meant that Earth forces could now intermingle with their Heavenly forces; separation from God occurred. Awareness and shame of being different arose. Between Adam and Seth unfolds the drama of Cain and Abel. Through these dramas, a new principle entered into mankind, the principle of heredity, of bloodline.  Keep in mind, that Cain and Abel represent not just individuals but streams. Not all of those belonging to the Abel line were eradicated; there still remain some Sons of God.

To the question: ‘Where is Abel, thy brother?’ Cain answered: ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’ Cain reveals with this reply something new in humanity coming with the Cain stream – egoism. No man would have said that previously. Now the principle of opposition is added to the principle of love from the Father; now, through Lucifer’s deed, egoism is born: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”Cain_and_Abel,_15th_century

What happens to those who were still of the Abel line? They were known as Sons of God for they remained akin to the divine. To protect this divine nature and the gifts it brought, they now had to guard themselves against allowing the earthly forces to enter them. From this resulted what was to later become the principle of asceticism. They dedicated their lives to the service of God and in time a dedicated one would have nothing to do with those who were soiled, who had committed themselves to the affairs of earth. It was a sin when ‘The Sons of God saw the daughters of men, saw that they were ‘fair’ and took from them wives.’  They took wives from the daughters of Cain.

According to the Akashic Record research done by Rudolf Steiner, this union resulted a race of men hinted at in the Old Testament; a race that is not perceptible to physical eyes. This race is called ‘Rakshasas’ in occult language and is similar to the ‘Asuras’ of Indian lore. These Rakshasas worked as seducers of mankind. They continued to influence human desires until the time when Christ incarnated in Jesus of Nazareth and the Buddhi principle, the Life Spirit itself became present on the earth in a human body.

Steiner makes this point about the Rakshasas, “now you may believe it or not: this is something of cosmic significance, of significance which reaches beyond the earthly plane. It is not for nothing that the Bible expresses it thus: ‘Christ descended into the forecourts of Hell.’ It was not human beings He met there, He was confronted by spiritual beings. The Rakshasa beings were brought thereby into a state of paralysis and lethargy!  They were at the same time kept in check so that they became unable to move. They could only be lamed in this manner because they were being opposed from two sides. That would not have been possible if there had not been two natures combined together in Jesus of Nazareth: on the one hand the old Chela nature, deeply connected with the physical plane, which could also work effectively on the physical plane and through its power could hold it in balance: on the other hand there was Christ Himself who was a purely spiritual being. That is the cosmic problem which is fundamental to Christianity. Something occurred at that time in occult spheres; it was the banishment of the enemies of mankind which has its echo in the Saga of the Antichrist, who was put in chains but will make his appearance again, if not opposed once more by the Christian principle in its primal force.

The whole occult striving of the Middle Ages was directed towards nullifying the effect of the Rakshasas. Those whose visionNostradamus by Cesar extends to the higher planes have long foreseen that the moment when this could happen might be at the end of the nineteenth century, at the transition from the nineteenth to the twentieth century. Nostradamus, who worked from a tower which was open to the heavens, who brought succor during the Great Plague, was able to foretell the future. He wrote a number of prophetic verses in which you can read about the war of 1870 and several prophecies about Marie-Antoinette which have already been fulfilled. In these ‘Centuries’ by Nostradamus (Century 10, 75) the following prophecy can be found: At the close of the nineteenth century a Hermes Brother will come from Asia and bring unity to mankind. Through Madame Blavatsky, the Theosophical Society was intended to be nothing less than a fulfillment of this prophecy of Nostradamus. The annulment of the Rakshasas and the reestablishment of the primal mysteries was an aim of the Theosophical Society.” (see Rudolf Steiner, The Temple Legend, Berlin, June 10, 1904, Lecture 2)
