The Table of Abraham:

The Table of Hospitality

Few indeed there are, who are aware of the full scope of how the City of St. Francis became the Holy City of the Third Israel, before falling to the position of Sodom, spiritually.

Yet the Visitation of my Father in San Francisco in the Name of Love as the New Name of God is still relatively unknown: except to those like Dusty Street and others who witnessed the Rapture first-hand. But we also have to observe why a little known coincidence was present at the same time that young children and people from all over the world began to make a Pilgrimage to the City of St. Francis, as if it had suddenly become Mecca. It was called LSD.

But what it really was, and why it appeared at that precise moment in human history belongs to what Cark ung called “Synchronicity”, the “Acausal Interconnecting Principle” of the Restoration of all things right before the Regeneration.

To bring to final fruition the main tenets and destiny of Discordianiam is the addition of The Truth of Jehovah, which brings the Principle of Contradiction into play and creates the “Secret Discordianism” which happens by one being “twice cursed”, and thus “blessed”. Of this David once spoke after a certain man roundly cursed him, at which David then said,

“…Let us see if God will turn this curse into a blessing…”

It is thus that we are trading “sweet for bitter” instead of our current “bitter for sweet”; this being our present condition of humanity being “under a spell” or “held captive by enchantments”, as mentioned by Arthur in the Grail of Father Blaise and Chretien de Troyes, described as the Egyptian ‘Stygian’ Darkness or “Pall” that wastes the land, seen in T.S. Eliot’s poem “The Wasteland” itself as well; the sickness afflicting society as of the “Malaise of the Soul”, by which that which is intrinsically”evil” is seen and promoted as “good” by the rich and powerful, and “good” thus demonized as being “evil”.

In America we constantly hear of this by the corrupt telling us that the poor deserve nothing but a slow painful death; because Social Darwinism is ”morally expedient” in letting the Weak  ( ie – “Poor” ) perish, and the Strong ( ie – “Rich” ) then survive. But it’s actually societal genocide…a War not on Poverty: but on the poverty-stricken.

Remember: in Egypt, if one was caught stealing, one was allowed to keep a portion of what one had stolen: as Lawful!!! Rather like the Bankers on Wall Street who are “above” the Law. Thus the ‘law’ is used as a weapon and means of control against the poor. The police do not arrest those who have access to high-priced legal counsel.

The way in which we “allow” the “idea” of what is evil to be seen as ‘good’ was seen even in our own day with the birth of first the Beats, and ten every stripe of countercultural tribe, as seen in our street ‘slang’ expressions, as being a reflection of what happened when we were caught looking in the Mirror of Isis, by which “Darkness” is called “light”; and thus renamed “good”, and “Light” is seen as “darkness” and renamed “evil”. Indeed we used to say that something was “baaad”, when we meant it was cool, “wicked” when it looked dangerous but beautiful, and a host of other paradoxical expressions illustrating the same thing. Even today, when something is seen as being wonderful, the mall rats and gamesters call something  fantastic by the expression ”sick”….as meaning “sickeningly cool”…..but still: sick???

The Story of Salvation Rose in Memphis

Yet as Moses did so does the Child of the Mississippi where he floated in that dark ritual dream by which he was submerged into it and became one with it’s spirit: that of the angel of Quetzacoatl; the “angel” of “Atlaos“; Atlas; Tlaos himself is Atlaos.

 The statue is of Ramses, the Pharaoh of Exodus
The Pyramid is in Memphis

This now stands in the city of the Sun, home of Sun records....the City of destruction for both Aaron Presley and our Moses; Dr. King

This now stands in the city of the Sun, home of Sun records…yet also Stax/Volt ecords…..Memphis stands as the prophetic “City of Destruction” for both our Aaron and our Moses, our Aaron as  Aaron Presley, who was the mediate cultural icon or “High Priest” of our parents generation, as being the “cross-over star” between black and white music, and the forerunner, spiritually,  and also the cultural mediator; for our Moses: Dr. King

 

Thus Job can be seem finally as the archetype of “Tlaos” as the “god who suffers”; A-tlaos as “Atlas”; the Universal Saint. He who “carries the world on his shoulders”, prefiguring Christ and his Cross.

The sheep in wolf's clothing

Here we see sheep in wolf’s clothing; the thing is this: when they see me they get the Wrong Idea: and THAT’S the IDEA; as the Snare of the Last Day

It is the “reversing” of this satanic “Mirror” by which the Child who is the lost sheep of Israel helps Mankind overcome our “moral dislexia” by which they who know not “good” from “evil” are finally enlightened: and this is no small thing; being the Dark Secret of Enlightenment itself in discerning throughout the Illusion of Death-in-life cast by the “White Goddess” the reversing of her spell being where “good” is no longer seen as “evil”; and what was “darkness” formerly unknown and thought evil now becomes seen as “light” or good..

This is what Moses who the Greeks call Prometheus really knew; and how he reversed all the Egyptian magic by which he discovered the truth; for instance; in Egypt Osiris is killed by Set; thus “Abel” as Seth kills “Cain” as Osiris.

In other words: the “opposite” to what happened; until Moses ( as “Abel”)  kills the “Egyptian”  ( as “Cain” ); thus the “ancient lie” becomes the truth; substantially: thus you have to watch the Magic of Isis; for Egypt has “no religion”; all of it that is visible is “written incantory black magic“…. period.   

This is the Secret Discordianism brought by that rememberance of that genial spirit of Robert Anton Wilson, as in the new embrace of the angelic Phillip K. Dick; for the Resurrection of the Just is when men and angels live together in One Kingdom; as we did once in Paradise. What changes is when we can see them: the Regeneration being of the 7 Senses themselves.

In the Revelation the Resurrection is of the 7 Trumpets of the 7 angels at the external 7 senses; at the Regeneration it is of the 7 Vials of the 7 angels in white at the 7 internal senses; the 7 Vials of Wrath being brought to them by the 4th living creature: the Eagle.

The Grail

The Grail is Perfection

 

The problem is that this is not written in the Revelation: the identity is never revealed; but I know it is the 6 winged living creature like a flying Eagle; thus we manifest the Book of Life of the Lamb; the Open Book.

The revealing of this Book given to me by my Father Jesus effectively “Ends” this world as anythig but a Passing Manifestation: the New Creation Coming is that of a New Heaven and a New Earth; thus only the dead may enter; for to enter life one must overcome Death.

This is the Second Death; just like the Antichrist Osama bin Laden is the pawn of Death: my soul stands as the angel of the Second Death.

Things just get more simple for me all the time; what their is of it: for Time now is but the Shadow of Life: for only Life really exists: and the Shadow of things is going to perish.

Where “Time” and “Eternity” become seperated at 2012 we will then who have “lived” in heaven even though in hell on earth will actually inherit the place in which we really dwelt: that we were itself the heaven that lived in us: and which we must have manifested if we did indeed have the Spirit. We will enter the Sun of Righteousness as Melting in the Holy Spirit; those not able to do so without the Name of Christ Jesus which alone is “Day Light” will then Burn in the Lake of Fire: it is the Name which is the difference: the Name is then the “Light of Life”.

The Light of Life: the first section of the Accord of Discord: the Discord of Discord itself.

In the other side of “Towards A Serious Discordianism” I reveal the nature of the “least in the kingdom of heaven”

The Name Christ Jesus as “Day Light”

 The Destruction of of the god Dis: and the Unveiling of the goddess; the throne of Death.

The Name of Jesus represented the Original Light God had Made; by Jesus overcoming Satan in the wilderness in the 40 days “the Light” thus became seperated from “the darkness”; as Jesus then became “the Christ”; which therefore is “the Day” as the Light separated from the Darkness. For Christ; this was his Shadow; Solomon; the fallen son of David; of which the lost sheep of Israel as the Prodigal Son is finally known; the Phoenix of New Hope; the Child of the Resurrection himself; as he who was dead: but now lives.

The Name of “Christ Jesus” therefore means “Day Light”; the Light of Light itself.

Where Joshua Abraham Norton brings the Blessing down is that this Name is then “seen” in the Name of Love: which in the place where the Child appeared in the Name of Love at the Golden Gate of our Palm Sunday: the Day of Our Victory; this was missed.

In the Name of Love this Name is then that of the God Almighty; as a Lamp set in a Crystal Niche; that Name of Christ Jesus in the Name of Love: indeed the Name of God Almighty: as that of Joshua: the Salvation of God.

___________________________________________________
This is the “apotheosis” of Discordianism in which it “finally contradicts itself once too many times” and becomes the New Order of Destiny in the 7 Acts of God; having cancelled out all the opposites and found the Single Affirmation of Unity; the creation of a Principle to which there is no Contradiction: the Grail itself.
 
Let us look at Joshua Abraham Norton: no one but the Great Unknown understood Joshua: but it has been revealed. By the City of St. Francis honoring one little one of the Lord as he who was now counted as “the least”: San Francisco found Salvation: for by honoring Joshua as the least, they secretly honored Christ the Hidden One himself: as of “the least of them” was Joshua Abraham Norton where the Greatest was able to manifest: not just as Bummer and Lazarus; who were two dogs representing the “Resurrection unto Damnation” for the Tares ( the dog “Bummer”, for those who brought forth their internal evil on Acid in their Baptism ) and the “Resurrection of Life” for the Wheat ( as of the dog called “Lazarus”, for those who brought forth their internal goodness on Acid, in their Baptism ), named for two Initiatory States in characteristic fashion themselves; the signs and wonders of My Generation.
 
In 1906 San Francisco was struck by the Censer: 4-18-1906: The Fire Cast to the Earth.
This can be seen at chapter 8 of Revelation verse 5; it was Gabriel who threw he Censer to the earth in 1906:  April 18th, as: 418 means “Parcifal” is Jewish gematria (  Robert Anton Wilson : “Cosmic Trigger”  (( Parcifal: “The Great Work Accomplished: the Illumination of All Mankind“))  ) 

The “Love-light” 

The One we had Honored”: as “Norton I”; for that One Act that One Above whose thoughts are living angels themselves Honored us: with His Prescence: and Joshua was this messenger; this gentle prophet who saw bridges: and they were made; saw tunnels: and they were built: prayed the Lord’s prayer between two mobs: a Peacemaker: they went home: helped the poor find work; but now One came with His Work: Love is the one we finally find “for Love is as Strong as Death” as Solomon wrote…..

The Second Death

Death is swallowed up in victory by the Second Death. And it is this new name of God as Love which gives us the strength, for this Love as even the Name of God gives us with the Seal of Christ Jesus the power to see what it stands for in Truth, that which Nothing can resist: for that One in the Name of Love is the Name of God: we have then the “Name of God Almighty”; a very powerful Name Indeed: because of what that Great City did once: for one poor man: for that: Salvation has now come to this Earth: even for that One Act: where one who was vanquished by the world: turned and Vanquished the world: that is the Ultimate Discord: Total Concordance. Harmonia Reigneth: Discord of Discord! Creates “Accord”!

Joshua: the Salvation of God; as of that Beloved City of St. Francis: who found that Child to lead them: Joshua Abraham Norton.

Let Us realize the Child of the Resurrection hath Come

Let Us Observe the Last day as the 7th day; even as the Double Sabbath of the Passover itself at the Last Supper

The truth which slowly dawns is this; where it was once said in these very words: to wit;

“…even as you have done it unto the least of these; ye have done it unto me….’

=========================

E498d78fc20ecf994dd605cfa5eec00f hands of God

Let all know that the spirit and the soul of man are the two hands of God

As all who follow the Lamb full well know; it is at the point where the Lamb having ascended to the Throne of the Father whom chooses one such soul to represent him that brings a swift end; and as the City of St. Francis found this one; naked; and clothed him; who had lost everything on a bad speculation on the rice market; thus Joshua Abraham found himself hungry: and the City fed him; without a home: and the City housed him; hungry; it fed him; and not just anywhere: but at the best places; put him in a mansion; and honored him further in many ways; unwittingly knowing that he would represent for them the Very Christ himself: little did they know!

Unforeseeing that the Glory would manifest itself in this City for the reason that during the Middle Ages the Pope made Assisi a place of Pilgrimmage equal unto Jerusalem when the Muslims had taken the city back and he needed a place for the failthful to do their Pilgrimage; thus when the City of St.Francis was destroyed in the 1906 Fire on 4-18 we have a synchronicity; for 4-18 is Easter; when the Lamb rose; thus we have this City given something we see 50 years after Maryam al Kubra appears as Mary of Fatimah in Portugal in 1917; for ‘Pentecost‘ means “Harvest”; as well as “Fifty”; thus what happened at Fatimah in Portugal at the Three Children in 1917 would appear to all Three Cities of Faith in 1967.

People; of course, forget; but as I show rather convincingly in my book “A City Not Forsaken” it the fact that when Israel broke the yoke of Islam off of Jerusalem in the 144 hours of the 6 Days War at that point when Islam had been defeated it was the City of St. Francis which suddenly became: a “new” Jerusalem; and in 1967 all the youth of the world made a Pilgrimage there: as of the Hate and the War of the “two brothers” who “hated each other: thus showing they had not “the love of God” in them; for John said whoso hatheth his brother abdeht not in God; thus the Children had Love and Peace where the “street” of “Hate/Haight” became the “River of Love”; verily; a River of Fire; to Baptize those who came in Faith to this Summer where a New Jerusalem so briefly stood.

So what had happened?

350x Moon

A Messiah preparing for his own death? What went wrong?

Basically at the point where the Jews were given Jerusalem; then Islam had Mecca; but the Christians were given the City of St. Francis; on the pattern of the 3 Children of Fatimah 50 years earlier. Francisco obviously represented San Francisco; thus at the Golden Gate God came in the guise of a child in the Name of Love; which is the name of Jehovah from the West: as John said; “God is Love”.

Few understand what the Pilgrimage meant to the children coming to San Francisco; but the answer lies in these words in the Revelation of St. John the Divine: at 7:4, to wit; “and there were sealed 144,000 of ALL the Tribes of the Children of Israel”; thus the operative word here is “All”; for the Gathering of the Tribes in San Francisco even though we decided to do it according to the Astrological Signs of the 12 of the Zodiac still meant that we were “Egypt: my people”; for as of all the tribes we came forth in the Outer Court of the Gentiles we appeared to be externally; yet internally it was those who arose as saints and prophets from that River who were those who brought back the day when the Lamb had entered the Golden Gate of Jerusalem on Palm Sunday; during the Visitation of God.

We also had our Visitation of God in the Name of Love; but The Rapture was not seen for what it really was.

Our reward was to come after the City fell to the position of Sodom spiritually; when the vultures came to feast on the carcase of the fallen holy city; the men of Sodom made sure that the Truth of Love that the City had represented was made into a fallen spectacle of men going after men like lustful beasts; the blessing of Alan Ginsgerg and his lover Gregory Corso turned into the vials of wrath that we saw later as first herpes “as of the itching sore” and then AIDS; to wit; for the IV drug users and the men of Sodom; both being those who went against the “temple of the Body” as destrying it: and thus “every living soul” who contracted AIDS died; as of the second vial of the Wrath of God.

It has been often said that Truth is stranger than fiction; and this is borner out by the fact that the Golden Gate in the City would show that the Entrance of the Child in the Name of God entered as having treated one Joshua Abraham Norton as a “king” had brought another blessing to the City of St. Francis: it was Redeemed from the men of Sodom; by one who died in Christ; and thus made for the City Nor Forsaken the Remission of it’s Dolorus Blow; the “blow” of which Mission Dolores as the original mission built in the City had so well foretold: for which the City had once been burned to the ground in 1906; to arise as the Phoenix it was; and it.

What does this mean? It means that St. Francis and his City enter in as having saved the children who were gathered out of this world there; and I am one of those; a native of that great city; as having the destiny of the holy Jerusalem itself; as having died in Christ I set standard by which the Salvation of God could be raised in which the “name” of “Joshua” really means; to wit; “The Salvation of God”.

Some would say my exposition is fanciful and extreme; but in truth I have but scratched the surface of what later happened at Beth-El “the House of God” men call Woodstock; as what began the Internal Exodus from Egypt to the Kingdom, indeed: that saw the peace-loving Hippies and callers of violent Revelution we saw in our more violent Radicals of our day as the reborn Nazarenes of the Lamb and the sword carrying followers of Barrabas ( the self-proclaimed leader of the Resistance many of the Zealots secretly supported ) whose camps both returned: in exactly the same spiritual positions; thus had the Times and the Seasons returned; although none knew it; only I stood on the street of pure gold at the age of 12 in 1967 and stared at the River of Humanity and wondered what it “Really All Meant”.

The Last Battle

The Coming of the Messenger of Jehovah of Hosts: the Priest

The Coming of the Messenger of Jehovah of Hosts: the Priest

It meant far more than I knew; for by having honored our Joshua we were given an Abraham; a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; as when the Chinese and their white hosts were fighting and Emperor Norton stood between the two warrings factions saying the Lord’s Prayer until the hostilities ceased and both sides went home: thus seting the stage for white and yellow to one day become fast friends; as indeed they now are; as of the New Church of New Hope itself: the Church of the Living God that the musical House of David as the mythical House of God the children gathered our Nation at in the 3 Day Seperation from Satan at the National Level indeed happened; that shows us now at The Song of the Lamb; ( by my band Thee Unicorns ); the destiny of Rock itself; seen at http://www.myspace.com/TheeUnicorns where the Trumpet of Gabriel is seen as the Horn of the Archangel itself.

The Global level was seen when the Wall went down at the Fall of the False Prophet Karl Marx at his defeat at the Global level in 1987; the Wall of Babylon at the Global Level seen as starting at 1917 until 1987; the classic seventy years period of Russia’s 70 Years Period of Indemnity at the national level in it’s Babylonian Captivity; which Rev. Sun Myung Moon completely missed in his book “Divine Principle“; as he also did for the 430 years period from 1492 for the Black and also Red races in the West in Slavery; as also the White race in those of the Quaker’s and Friends in the Brethern of Sincerity also suffered as well; carrying the conscience of the entire white race in the West for the entire world.

But Music is seen at the end as the Universal speech itself in which the Liberation of God is revealed to mankind by the holy angels of whom Gabriel speaks for the loudest as the “fan of man”; our biggest supporter; and the one who believed in us the most: and whose prayers have all been answered; as is self-evident in my book.

The Love of which the God of Love and Peace stands as the revealed God of the Whole Earth is easily seen as by the little child who currently holds this pen; a scribe like Eliakim the Scribe; being the descendent of David by Solomon and David’s other son Nathan; and then the ancestor of Jesus by Joseph and Mary; by Mary directly; since Joseph was not Jesus’s father; that having been Jehovah in the form of a Dove: the Holy Spirit of God Himself.

Eliakim thus holds a unique position; and it is the scribe like Enoch at the end who God takes; as it is written:

“and God took him; and he was “not”……

But it is the revelaing of the Path of the Just at the End which is the real sign of the Coming of the Son of man; as that Sun of Righteousness himself.

It is the revealing of the 7 Overcomings in the 7 churches in their full import which is the task of the Scribe. In revealing how the 144,000n are gathered it is seen who she has made the kings of the earth fall; as she has seduced them one-by-one to make fall; yet at the end she meets one she cannot make fall:and thus she is “thrown down” from her position of “moral superiority” she sat upon as ruling over the “servants of sin”.

It is the Coming of the Son of man as he “who overcomes” and thus “inherits all things” and the written guide he writes to guide men to follow him that is the gift of God at the End; the Straight Path itself revealed; showing how all who follow him how he reached that position as Incarnate in which mortality “puts on” Immortality; and corruption “puts on” Incorruption: and how all who follow him can reach it as well: even the whole 144,000 who must first be sealed and then the 144,000 who die in Christ who are then written after them. These two represent a universal foundation of faith and then one of Substance as sealed and written which are the conditions of indemnity at the global and then universal level of “heaven and earth” that ISIS as “Mystery: cannot then stop; thus “her smoke goes up forever” as her Veil “burns” which hid “The Mystery of God“.

It is this which was “Unknown”; for everything exists conceptually relative to the absolute; but the Absolute itself exists relative to the Unknown; for nothing is known until it IS known; which at this level means “unsealed”; and this is what happens at the End; bringing swift destruction; as of he who “opens” and none shuts; “shuts”; and no man opens.

Crown of Glory

The Crown of Glory is of the Virgins

It is this which is thus filled “double” to the Harlot of Babylon the Cup of Gold or Principle of Indemnity she holds is finally taken away from her and she is then made to take herself: destroying her utterly; as she cannot “absorb” the sacrifice of the Virgins of the Lamb; as of the Bride I myself defend as my own soul; which my soul stands surrogate for until the entire 144,000 be written in my book; one at a time.

Timeline of First Marriage and

then the 12 marriages of Mohammed; and the wives as the 12 thrones

(The vertical lines in the graph indicate, in chronological order, the start of prophethood, the Hijra, and the Battle of Badr.)

 

“….That ye may eat and drink at my Table in my Kingdom,

and sit on (12) thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel….”

When my Father began feeding large numbers of people who were following him to hear his every word and be healed by his presence or direct contact, a few miracles occurred which were truly unique.

These occurred in Galilee, to feed large crowds of people, that my Father accomplished by taking a small amount of something, like a few loaves of bread or some fish, and then, somehow, multiplying it into a much greater amount. That he feed thousands of people is a recognized fact, even so: no one had a clue to how this could even be accomplished, even to this day, as it violates the most fundamental and elementary laws of physics and the conservation of matter.

Let us see how this question became raised; 

Tennone stepped into the room from the garden. He was wearing a lamb-skin apron with  five Hebrew letters on it.

Even though Sigismundo’s knowledge of the language was scant, he could read that word. The letters were yod he shin vau he, – Yeshuah, or, in Greek Jesus.
Without the shin, it was yod he vau he, JHVH or Jehovah. The shin, which looked like a flame, represented the descent of the Holy Spirit of Jehovah into the flesh in the form of the man, Jesus.

“Prepare the candidate,” Tennone said in a tone that conveyed no admission that he had known Sigismundo for seven years.

        Tennone quickly stepped back into the garden and closed the door behind him.

        “By now,” Uncle Pietro said, “the questions which I gave you have turned into monsterous problems. I will now give you the answers. Read them quickly, because you will be summoned to the garden in only a few minutes.” He went to Tennone’s bookcase and removed the Holy Bible.
With a solemn glance, he gave it to Sigismundo, who noticed at once that it had a parchment sticking out of it.
============================
 “Read the parchment and consult the Bible,” Pietro said. “I will leave now. You will be called shortly.”
        He immediately exited into the garden, leaving Sigismundo wondering if the parchment might say, “This is the final joke. Beware of damnable books of philosophy along with those of Romance.”

        Sigismundo removed the parchment. It began:

 
             Who was Adam the son of?
              See Luke 3:38
             Does God have an opposite?
              See Exodus 3:14 and Ephesians 4:4-6
        And so on. Oh, damn and blast, Sigismundo thought. Why didn’t they just write in the texts, instead of forcing me to look up each one for myself? But the answer was clear. Hunting for each text under a time limit would increase his sense of urgency.
     
   He turned to the first question and its answer.
Luke would be near the back of the Bible, of course. He quickly found chapter 3, verse 38:
             “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth,
             which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.”
        Sigismundo couldn’t believe his eyes: he felt like Galileo seeing the blasphemous, unbelievable, non-Aristotelian spots on the sun. He scanned rapidly back through several verses. This was the genealogy of Jesus (who’s name was on Tennone’s apron….).
It began at verse 23, saying Jesus was the son of Joseph and Joseph was the son of Heli which was the son of Matthat and so on, David and Solomon and all, until Enos, “which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God,” in verse 38, from which he had started.
        But Adam was the “son of God” only metaphorically, wasn’t he? (But Vico said all thought was metaphor.) The text did not seem to be speaking metaphorically; it repeated “which was the son of” in what seemed to be a very real literal sense each time until it reached the astonishing conclusion. It seemed to be saying that Adam was the son of God as literally as Joseph was the son of Heli.
        The Masons were indeed leading him into most extreme heresies. The idea that Mohammed was literally the son of God, and so was Confucius, and so were many others, could easily follow once you accepted that Jesus was not the only one, that Adam had been another.
        

Sigismundo quickly turned to the next question.

             Does God have an opposite?
              See Exodus 3:14 and Ephesians 4:4-6
        He turned the pages rapidly. Exodus 3:14 said:
             “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt you
             say unto the children of Israel: I AM hath sent me unto you.”
        And Ephesians 4:4-6 was even more startling:
             “There is one body, and one spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your
             calling: one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who
             is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
        Sigismundo thought of God as I AM, as one body and one spirit, in all. Even in Peppino?
Even in Caligula? This was pantheism, another doctrine for which Bruno had been condemned.
Were the Masons secret followers of Bruno?
        He rushed on to the next question.
             How many sons of God are there?
              See Romans 8:14-17
        Here we come to the heart of the heresy, he thought. But he looked up the text:
             “For as many are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God; for ye
             have not recieved the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have recieved
             the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit beareth
             witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and if children,
             then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer
             with him, that we may also be glorified.”
        Everybody was a child of God — not just Adam and Jesus — and the Bible said so. Sigismundo had never heard that in Religious Knowledge class. He went on to the next question.
             Are the sons of God also gods?
              See John 10:34
        Sigismundo turned the pages impatiently.
             “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law,
             I have said, Ye are gods?”
        There it was in black and white.
             Are any of the sons of God less than others?
              See Colossians 3:4
             “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear then shall ye appear with him in glory.”
        In other words, Sigismundo thought, when you can see Christ you are Christ. When your will becomes one with the will of God, as Abraham said.
             What is the goal of prophets and teachers?
              See Ephesians 4:11-13

             “And he gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists,

             and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the

             work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all

             come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the son of God,

          unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”

 

        We are to be raised to perfection, Sigismundo thought. Just as the French atheists say. But here the Bible is saying it, too. He rushed on, turning pages rapidly.
             How many minds are there?
                  
        He had thought: billions and billions, all over space. What he read did not contradict that, but gave a new perspective on it:
             See Deuteronomy 4:39 and Exodus 3:14
             “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he
              is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath: There is none else.”
             “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM……”
        Sigismundo rushed on.
             What is a human being?
              See Genesis 1:26
             “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”
             Is mankind finished or still in process?
              See 1 John 3:2
             “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not appear what we
             shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him,
             for we shall see him as he is.”
             How much can and should we attempt?
              See John 14:12
             “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do
              he shall do also; and greater works than these shall he do.”
        But that was the heresy of the Alumbrados: the doctrine that we could all perform the miracles of Christ if we were illuminated.
 
             What is the purpose of consciousness?
              See 2 Corinthians 9:8 and Luke 12:32
             And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, having
             always all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.
             Fear not, little flock; for it is your father’s good pleasure to give you
             the kingdom.”
        And the last question, finally:
             What is the next step?
              See Romans 8:19

 “For the earnest expectation of the creature awaiteth the manifestation of the sons of God.”

                
                
        “Psst!” Uncle Pietro whispered. “Come out now.”
        Beautifully timed, Sigismundo thought, they were watching to see when I finished.
 
        He walked toward the garden with his mind in a whirl of confusion and excitement.
They have me, he thought, in a state where any shock will be like great music……..”
