Luke 21:28 Yesterday, August 11, 1999, began with a solar eclipse which heralded for New Agers the Dawn of the New Light. Another message, which preceded this post, described a live channeling session that was held last May at The United Nations in Vienna, Austria. "The Group" -- obviously the Ascended Masters (aka demons) -- announced at that time there would be no further delay for the Dawning of the New Light, according to the <The Lightworker website of the channeler. A subsequent channeled message presents the imminent time frame for said prophecy: =20 "It was only a short time ago that humanity began to awaken and turn toward the Light. In that short time, you have done much to alter the outcome of the Game, as many have chosen the path of advancement while still in biology. The original scripting of the Game set a target date of 2012 for the final shifting of mass consciousness and the next level of the Game. The collective vibratory level on the Gameboard of Free Choice has now made it possible to begin opening some of the portals early. As a direct result of the advancement of humanity and the work you have done, the gradual introduction of the higher levels of Light through these portals will now begin. You have shifted the collective consciousness on the Gameboard once again, and now the new Light will dawn.=20 =20 "The twenty nine days beginning with the event you know to be the solar eclipse will mark the introduction of the new Light to the planet. The alignment of the planets, and the recent alignment of the grids on Earth, mark the introduction of the new Light to the rest of the Universe. This twenty nine days will mark the next shift of humanity, as seen from the highest perspective. As the sun is blocked from view, prepare to release the attachments that have kept you bound. In the momentary darkness of the eclipse, feel the sadness and grief of releasing the familiar.-The Group.=20 The channeler defined the period which is designated the Dawn of the New Light: "The twenty nine days between August 11th and September 9th 1999 mark the period that the Group has called the 'Dawn of the New Light'. It will be a time for change to be set into motion."=20 =20 This is not an isolated prophecy, but correlates with other New Age sources. According to a recent e-mail from another New Age website, <Busor= ama Md BTCALENBrush Script MTdeBusorama Md BTRBrush Script MTsign, the occasion for this change would be the August 11 solar eclipse:=20 "The solar eclipse on Aug. 11th, 1999 is taking place right in front of the mouth of LEO (Leumund), on the 222nd day of the year and 144 days before year 2000. One pregnancy period after the eclipse will be in May 2000 a recoming of the star of Bethlehem with the pearl necklace like string of planets." Celestial events occurring between the August 11-September 9 "Dawn of the New Light" will, after a nine month gestation period, give birth to a global day of judgment on May 5, 2000. We have identified the following dates during this period as hosting important events on the New Age calendar. Certain names of planets, gods and events are highlighted which will be seen at the conclusion of the report to correspond to the elements of an ancient Mideastern festival that celebrated the return of the heathen god, Adonis, also considered to be the Sun. =20 This calendar of events which will figure significantly in the dawning of the anticipated New Age is not exhaustive but presents highlights of the ominous events that will propel mankind toward a New Age "day of judgment" -- May 5, 2000 -- which must precede the purported transformation. This day of judgment, however, is not to be confused with another Day of Judgment, although it will be represented as such.=20 God's judgment of the world shall follow without fail, after which the stars and planets which men worship as gods will utterly fail them: 8080,0000,8080"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken."

The intention of this ceremony is to seal the doorway to our collective consciousness as it begins to open. The reason they wish to have this outcome, is that this organization represents the power brokers of our planet, who would prefer to maintain their control of the knowledge, finances and spiritual/political future of our societies. This control is through FEAR and misinformation.=20 Medicine people and tribal people around the world are asking for your help to focus our collective intention to keep this doorway to change opened.

[Antioch is acclaimed by Hebrew Roots false teachers as= the point of origin of the Scriptures.

Note that the signal for the celebration of the rites was the= flashing of a meteor, which corresponds to the meteor shower expected= during August 11-13, 1999, the first days of the Dawn of the New Light.= Then a mysterious Star, namely Venus - the Morning Star, appeared as a sign= announcing the arrival of deity. This celestial event is expected to occur= on August 21, with the appearance of Venus as the Morning Star, signifying= the New Age type of Christ.=20 Please note the various identities of Adonis as found in the Theosophical= Glossary:=20 "= Adonai (Heb.). The same as Adonis. Commonly translated= '0000,0000,ffffLord'. Astronomically -- the= 0000,0000,ffffSun. When a Hebrew in reading= came to the name of 0000,0000,ffffIHVH, which= is called Jehovah, he paused and substituted the word= '0000,0000,ffffAdonai', (Adni); but when= written with the points of Alhim, he called it= '0000,0000,ffffElohim'." [Blavatsky quoting= W. W. Westcott, founder, Order of the Golden Dawn] [See:= <The Sacred Name on our website] "In this connection a well-known statement of Jerome may not be without= significance. He tells us that= 0000,0000,ffffBethlehem, the traditionary= birthplace of the Lord, was shaded by a grove of that still older Assyrian= Lord, 0000,0000,ffffAdonis, and that where= the infant Jesus had wept, the lover of= 0000,0000,ffffVenus was bewailed. Though he= does not expressly say so, Jerome seems to have thought that the grove of= Adonis had been planted by the heathen after the birth of Christ for the= purpose of defiling the sacred spot. If Adonis was indeed, as I've argued,= the spirit of the corn, a more suitable name for his dwelling-place could= hardly be found than Bethlehem, 'the House of Bread,' and he may well have= been worshipped there at his House of Bread long ages before the birth of= Him who said, 'I am the bread of life.' Even on the hypothesis that Adonis= followed rather than preceded Christ at Bethlehem, the choice of his sad= figure to divert the allegiance of Christians from their Lord cannot but= strike us as eminently appropriate when we remember the similarity of the= rites which would commemorated the death and resurrection of the two.=20 The worship of Adonis even entailed the appearance of a= 0000,0000,ffffStar in the East= (0000,0000,ffffVenus or Astarte)= announcing the resurrection of the god: One of the earliest seats of the worship of the new god was= 0000,0000,ffffAntioch, and at Antioch, as we= have seen, the death of the old god was annually celebrated with great= solemnity. A circumstance which attended the entrance of Julian into the= city at the time of the Adonis festival may perhaps throw some light on the= date of its celebration. When the emperor drew near to the city he was= received with public prayers as if he been a god, and he marveled at the= voices of a great multitude who cried that the= 0000,0000,ffffStar of= Salvationffff,0000,0000 had dawned= upon them in the East. This may doubtless have been no more than a fulsome= compliment paid by an obsequious Oriental crowd to the Roman emperor. But= it is also possible that the rising of a bright star regularly gave the= signal for the festival, and that as chance would have it the star emerged= above the rim of the eastern horizon at the very moment of the emperor's= approach. The coincidence, if it happened, could hardly fail to strike the= imagination of a superstitious and excited multitude, who might thereupon= hail the great man as the deity whose coming was announced by the sign in= the heavens. Or the emperor may have mistaken for a greeting to himself the= shouts which were addressed to the star.= 0000,0000,ffffNow Astarte, the divine mistress of= Adonis, was identified with the planet Venus, and her changes from a= morning to an evening star were carefully noted by the Babylonian= astronomers, who drew omens from her alternate appearance and= disappearance. Hence we may conjecture that= 0000,0000,ffffthe festival of Adonis was regularly= timed to coincide with the appearance of Venus as the Morning or Evening= Star. But the star which the people of Antioch saluted at the= festival was seen in the East;= therefore8080,0000,8080,= 0000,0000,ffffif it was indeed Venus, it can= only have been the Morning Star. At Aphaca in= 0000,0000,ffffSyria, where there was a famous= temple of Astarte, the signal for the celebration of the rites was= apparently given by the flashing of a= 0000,0000,ffffmeteor, which on a certain day= fell like a star from the top of Mount Lebanon into the river Adonis. The= 0000,0000,ffffmeteor was thought to be Astarte= herself, and its flight through the air might naturally be= interpreted as the descent of the amorous goddess to the arms of her lover.= At Antioch and elsewhere the appearance of the Morning Star on the day of= the festival may in like manner have been hailed as the coming of the= goddess of love to wake her dead leman from his earthy bed. If that were= so, we may surmise that it was the Morning Star which guided the wise men= of the East to Bethlehem, the hallowed spot which heard, in the language of= Jerome, the weeping of the infant Christ and the lament for Adonis."=20 [The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion; Sir James George Frazer; I= Vol. Abridged Edition; The Macmillan Company, 1951; pp. 402-403; ch.= xxxiii.] Note the compromise of Christian worship through the= sharing of similar themes and rites with pagan religions. Already= Christians have been conditioned to worship the pagan god, Adonis, courtesy= of the Hebrew Roots Movement which has substituted YHVH and its= derivative, Yeshua, for the name of the LORD. With the current trend of= tattooing people with the Star of David and Hebrew letters, reception of= <The Mark of the Beast will become a= religious rite in the apostate church which will lead many who profess to= be Christian in a natural progression toward worship of the Sun -- the god= of Freemasonry.
