John the Baptist
John the Baptist in His previous incarnation is known as the prophet Elijah. He is one of the few who went through the Ascension ceremony right in the physical body, ascended to Heaven in the “ chariot of fire “.
However, after His ascension, Elijah received the almost unique dispensation that enabled Him to reembody; and so He came again as John the Baptist to “ prepare the way go the Lord “.
The prophet Elijah was the teacher of Elisha- an earlier embodiment of Jesus. He willingly took on flesh form and allowed himself to be sacrificed at the hand of Herold, in order to assist his disciple to fulfill his mission.
The relationship of Jesus and John the Baptist is a story of great devotion, love and respect- beautiful to behold and seldom equaled.
It is the story of the guru-chela, master-disciple relationship.
The Baptism of Christ
Jesus began his Great Service- bringing the Truth to the people of Israel- with the baptism of John. There is a tradition that Jesus lived for a year with the Essenes. The Essenes lived in a closed community near the Dead Sea. There Jesus learned about the priesthood of John and expressed His intention to go to the place of His ministry, which was near the Dead Sea, on the banks of the Jordan River. The sages of the Essenes informed John that a Great Teacher would appear to Him, so the people should be prepared for His coming.
Being the great and humble teacher that he was, John said of Jesus, “ He must increase, but I must decrease “, ( John 3:30 ) for he bore in his heart the great God-desire that Jesus should exceed him in attainment and in service.
To the questions of many people, of whether He is the Christ, John answered that He only prepares the way of the Lord. “ I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. “ ( Matthew 3:11 )
John, remaining in the shadows, wanted to see the glory of Jesus when He would put on the full robe of the ascended consciousness of His Guru.
John the Baptist was a second cousin of Jesus. Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist was the cousin of Mother Mary.
After His lifetime as John the Baptist, He returned to the ascended state.
In our time, John the Baptist brought His Teaching through the Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood, Tatyana N.Mickushina.
In the Message “ Prepare your temples for the Messiah “, transmitted on April 11, 2005, He said:
“I AM John the Baptist. I was the one who predicted the advent of the Messiah Christ.
I have come. I have come to tell you the story of my life, of my last life. And I have come to give you some instructions concerning your current lives ”.
Further, John the Baptist talks about Himself and about the essence of His Teaching:
“ You know that I lived in the desert during my incarnation. I lived on locusts and wild honey.
People thought me to be insane. But I could have communion with God only after I had separated myself from people and their vanity.
And I would not have exchanged this communion for any human riches and honors.
I seldom spoke to people. My basic Teaching was directed at purifying of their souls and preparing them for the coming of the Messiah.
People understood my words in their own way, thinking that I was talking about the coming of some external Messiah, a man who was to free them from their troubles and misfortunes.
But I meant not only the coming of an external Messiah but also the coming of an inner one that had always been dwelling in the consciousness of every man. I was preparing human consciousness for the coming of this Messiah.
I would not think any of those people understood what I was talking about. But still, human consciousness changed a little and they began expecting the coming of Christ. And He came and carried out his Mission honorably “.
John the Baptist explains the reason for His cruel reprisal:
“ My sermon cost me my life. Contrary to most of the people, the ruling clergymen soon realized that my Teaching, if it had been understood by the people, would have deterred the flock from external worshipping and external rituals forever and would have directed them to the meeting with the real Messiah, to their inner meeting with God and the real part within them.
Illustration to the Bible:
John the Baptist
…Having obtained such an inner communion and such bliss inside of them, people would never have been able to trust any external religion or teachers.
After having received access to the Divine state of consciousness, people would have been drawn to the like ones very quickly. The Divine state of consciousness is as catching as any manifestation of a non-divine state of consciousness, characteristic of many people now.
People are closely interconnected in the higher planes. A happy thought and good thinking, if they are born in several minds and hearts simultaneously, are capable of spreading from heart to heart. It is similar to a candle that can easily kindle a million candles with its flame “.
Here John the Baptist explains why it was difficult for Him to give knowledge to people:
“ I did not have an opportunity to give my Teaching to a large number of people, of course. I was teaching those few who had the courage to come up and listen to me. People were scared to receive knowledge from me because clergymen prohibited them from communicating with me. It was hard for me to give knowledge to people ”.
Comparing His time and today’s opportunities in spreading the Teaching, thanks to the Internet- the gift of the Beloved Saint Germain, John the Baptist said:
“ Look at the changes that have taken place around you so far. I dictate this Message and you can receive it on the same day even if you are on the other side of the planet. It is really a time of great opportunities for you. We do not even need to waste either your efforts or ours on gathering together people who are ready to perceive our Teaching at a certain place on Earth. You receive our Teaching and our vibrations due to the blessed gift granted to humanity by Saint Germain. I mean the Internet. And this is one of a few cases when the use of the Internet does real good and, as a matter of fact, this was the aim with which this invention was introduced in the physical plane”.
And in the conclusion of his Message, John the Baptist gives humanity His admonition, His promise of Love and His Prophecy, which will surely come true!
“ My blessed hearts, you have an opportunity to listen to the Teachings of the great Beings of Light who have been coming into incarnation to teach mankind during the last thousands of years.
You have an opportunity to receive an unprecedented stream of the Divine energy through these Dictations. And this dispensation, this Heaven’s gift for you, became possible due to this opportunity. Rate this opportunity highly. Drink the nectar of Divine energy. But remember that no drop of this Energy should be wasted in vain. Energy is being granted to you for performing good deeds, not for finding out who is more divine and superior among you. You are not able to know it with your human consciousness. The greatest people among you are those who do their best to serve life and all living creatures and do not demand anything for themselves in return. This is because there is nothing in this life that is worth exchanging for the gift of the Divine communion and for the opportunity to serve God during a whole life. So, try to use the received Energy properly. Prepare your temples for the coming of the Messiah and let your Messiah, which is your Higher Self, your Christ Self, come to you, be in you, speak through you, and act through you.
My beloved and blessed: Trust me; everything will be just as it has been predicted. Your eyes will begin to see clearly; you will see us and commune with us, and stroll with us, and talk to us.
You can only imagine the change in the world when each of you receives an opportunity of a personal communion with the Ascended Hosts. But this will take place. This will be sooner or later. And this will be just as unavoidable as the fact that spring follows winter and is followed by summer in its turn.
I AM John the Baptist, Elijah the Prophet, and I tell you my prophecy. My prophecy will certainly come true, and you know it in your hearts too.
I AM John the Baptist. I was the one who predicted the advent of the Messiah Christ “.
