A. END TIMES: ALIGNING WITH GOD … MATTHEW 24:1-2

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Introduction to the “End Times: Matthew 24” Video Series

I am here reading from Matthew Chapter 24. This is a long discussion, in many different videos, about Chapter 24 from Matthew, where Christ discusses the Second Coming, and the process that we are all going through right now.

I have done my best to add what little I know about how things are going, and perhaps provide a greater window of opportunity for interpreting these words.

Of course, there are many different opportunities, and many different interpretations; and it is up to each individual to pick the one that suits and resonates with them most, at the moment.

Matthew 24:1-2: Aligning with God

On that note, I will just start with the first two verses …

24  “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.”

So this is the first verse: Jesus was in the Temple talking … Actually, in the prior chapter, he was in the Temple talking to the Scribes and Pharisees, and telling them what incredible hypocrites they were. But that is a whole, separate story. So it is no wonder that they were all upset, is it not?

So he went out from the Temple, and his disciples came to show him the buildings of the Temple. Apparently there were quite a few buildings involved. It was probably like a little spiritual complex, and maybe the center and the heartbeat of that community. And the disciples were apparently very proud of these buildings, right?

So you might consider that what was going on here, was that Christ was talking to the main religion of his area, at his time, and as a Teacher of Higher Truth, he was trying to explain that appearances were not everything … That the important thing is what is in our hearts, and whether we really desire to serve God, right?

And this upsets people who are caught up in social structures. The Spirit has some conflict with the … you could say ‘psychic bonding’, the tribal bonding of people … Because the Spirit leads our hearts up to God, and down into the very center of things and of ‘matter’ on Earth; into the very center of Earth.

It does not spread itself out, really, into social bonding, because the first fractal of Truth created through affinity with Spirit is the pranic column (aka pranic tube, central vertical power current, kundalini, antahkarana, silver cord or silver thread) energy … the energy of our own hearts reaching up to God … to Heaven … and of our own hearts reaching down to the very center of Earth.

Connecting Spirit with matter: That is our main function as mirrors of God. First (to paraphrase), is to love the Lord your God with your whole heart, your whole mind, your whole Soul … like that. The second is to love your neighbor as yourself. (A1)

So what that means is, a very basic understanding of the fractal nature of reality: We create this image, this alignment of ourselves with God. We feel our relationship to God. And other people start replicating that.

We love our neighbors as a fractal that aligns with God.

So the breakdown … the degradation of relationships … that has occurred during the Dark Age .. during these many ages when we have felt so separate from God, and when Soul wounding has occurred … the degradation is to align ourselves with what we see in the world of ‘matter’, rather than to align ourselves with our own Spirits.

So Christ walked into the Temple, where this degradation of alignment had occurred … where people were looking to each other for greater self-esteem, by pretending to be higher than other people.

He walked into the temple and he said (to paraphrase): You hypocrites! … He had so many bad things to say! He said …

Insert: Matthew 23:33-34 (KJV, public domain)

33  “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” … [How could they take this? Then he says …]

34  “Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets,” … [that would be Christ, in this case] … “and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify;” … [now who would this be? Christ Himself, right?] … “and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:” … [such as the Apostles, right? … after Christ passed on] …

So we do not have to take this literally: That we are going to be crucified and so forth. But the thing of it is, that as the Ascension process continues, there will be much scourging and torturing and crucifying of people that represent Christ …

Because the fractal is different. The fractal is very different. We align with God; we align with Christ. We align with Christ consciousness.

We do not do that I need you! [somebody else]. We do not do that I need your money! thing. We do not do: I look up to you because you are higher! … No. We are that Higher Self. We are that Source of abundance.  We are that image of Christ Himself. We are that!

Why should we look afield? Why should we look to how other people think of us? And so: What of these Temples of Earth, as in Chapter 24, verse 1? What of these Temples of Earth? What of these buildings of stone? What do they really mean?

This is how I feel about it: They meant to Christ, and they mean to me, the snagging of consciousness on the material world … the turning away from God, and the turning of the consciousness to stone.

This applies to all the religions, in some degree or another. Every church that has a building, has this snagging, or solidification, of consciousness. It is that against which Christ railed: He wanted a free flow of beingness in God. And so, here in Chapter 24, verse 2, He describes that. He is looking at the beautiful Temple buildings, and He says …

2 “And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

Did He mean that the temple was going to be destroyed? No! He meant that the structure of our thought in religious groups is going to change to such an extent that we will not be able to recognize it anymore. The solidity of our beliefs in religion are going to go away, during the Ascension process. During the End Times, the Temples will be torn downl

So, why hold onto group consciousness when we can … in the magnificence of beauty of our own Souls, align with God Himself?

So the first message is probably the hardest one to take. In another video, I will go on with this Chapter.

…………………..
FOOTNOTE

(A1) Here is the relevant Biblical quotation:

“The Parable of the Good Samaritan” (Luke 10:25-28, KJV, public domain)

25  “And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26  “He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27  “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28   “And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.”

B. END TIMES: BIRTH PAINS … MATTHEW 24:3-10

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Christ was sitting on what was called the ‘Mount of Olives’. And this story goes like this ..

3 “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

So here Christ begins quite an interesting description of the sign of His coming … His Second Coming at the end of the world.

My comments on this are that … as we will see a little later … what he really meant by ‘thy coming’ was: The coming of His consciousness to Earth.

And what he meant by ‘the end of the world’ was: The end of the world as it was then, and the beginning of something very new and wonderful, on Earth.

That is just something that is often overlooked. To continue on …

4 “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”

Alright. So this is about the false Christs. And just from my own observation: One of the problems that we have today, is that there are many different versions of Christianity … and many other religions in the world. And each one is proclaiming, in its own way: I am the Christ!

But Christ Himself … Christ consciousness … cannot be divided into sects and religions and beliefs of the mind. Christ consciousness … as we will see, a little farther on, is much more … it is almost a physical thing. It is Light. It is a new Light.

He describes it as physical Light; but physical Light is only the physical manifestation of a Light that includes many layers … or Dimensions … of Realty.

So, thoughts in the mind, and divisions that the mind makes of Christ consciousness into religious groups, and so forth … I feel that these are, in a way, the false Christs that He is talking of.

And so, I hope I have not offended anyone. But it seems to me that Christ consciousness is much greater than any of that. You know? It is just incredibly much greater.

So this next part here [the next verse] pretty much shows the headlines that we see in the newspapers today. Now, mind you, this is not necessarily the state of the world, but it is the state of our belief in how the world is.

And so, Christ’s prophecy in this regard has been fulfilled by what I would call … in another blog, I called it the ‘Associated Press mental filter’. (B1)

So here are the headlines, according to Christ. And, in fact, that is what we see today …

6 “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” [the word ‘sorrows’ is sometimes translated as ‘birth pains’]

So what we have here, I feel, is a rising up of fear amongst humankind. And this fear is creating all these headlines. That is how I look at it, in terms of co-creating our Reality.

But other people, who do not know the power that they have to co-create Reality, will imagine themselves enmeshed in a Causal Realm, and carried along in a tide of ill tidings … of wars and rumors of wars …

These might be psychic wars that will take place, as people sort through their ego issues, and as telepathy becomes worldwide, and as people finally realize that striving against each other does not bring them happiness. And that happiness is only found in the Heart.

So all these events that are spoken of …

  • Whether they be in the astral realm, in the fourth dimension … as people expand into the fourth dimension, during this, the time of the Great Shift …
  • Or whether they be acted out in the real world …
  • Or simply the emotions of them ratcheted up through headlines that are very incendiary towards fear and anxiety and upset …

In any case, all of these things presage the coming of Christ consciousness … because Christ speaks of ” … famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” So the notion that wealth, or physical security, is our true home, and our true safety, will go away, and people will turn to Faith instead. And they will turn to Love, and to supporting each other, instead. That is how I see it, in the broad sense.

And then this business about ” … nation [rising] against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” Well, of course, this has been the history of the world, has it not?

But I think also, as people expand into the fourth dimension … into the feeling world … and as the world becomes telepathic … then this business about group versus group will come to the fore.

 Because people only ascend one by one. They only inherit the Keys to the Kingdom of God from Christ. Not from a group. And so, people are grouping together … again, for safety. Turning to wealth for safety. And all these things will be shaken up; and people will look towards other possibilities.

But to get back to what is going to happen in the psychic realm: Imminently … very soon … people will start encountering people in other groups, with other beliefs. And there will be psychic wars along those lines, until people settle into the notion that everyone on this Free-Will Planet is able to have their own beliefs. And that, in fact, that is the way this Reality functions, you see? So that is coming up. That part is pretty much coming up.

All right, now what is happening is that the groups that I know are creating … what is it called? … ‘sacrificial victims’ to reinforce their group identity … I being one of them! So I can talk about this pretty easily.

So, I want to relate and align only with God. And the groups that I have been involved with … their leaders are turning them against me, and creating hostility against me, so as to solidify their own ranks.

There is a name for this .. I would call it ‘scapegoating’ in other blogs, if you want to look it up. (B2) So this is one aspect of ” …nation [rising] against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” It is one of the first things that groups do … whether they be nations, kingdoms, associations, political groups, economic groups, church groups … whatever it is. As in the witch hunts of Salem, they find people that they can turn against … and kill or pillory, or however it is … on the psychic plane. And this is supposed to solidify the group.

Secondly., the next thing is that a group will try to take over another group … what might be termed a ‘hostile takeover’ in the corporate world. A ‘kingdom’ will try to take over another ‘kingdom’ … As has been the case in the war of the United States against a small group of very religiously fervent people in the Middle East: We have tried to put down their cultural values, and their beliefs about chastity and Faith, and adherence first to God, and only to God. And we have tried to destroy them completely. So in a way, that is an instance of scapegoating again, not ‘nation against nation’.

Coming up are the ‘Big Bads’ (B3) … nations against nations; and ideologies against ideologies. And when the dust settles, we will have Christ consciousness.

To continue … Oh, what do you know! This is about that scapegoating thing. This is when people’s hearts open a little wider, and groups attack them. For a number of different reasons, they attack. This has happened to me, as my Heart opened: Groups have banded together, on the psychic plane to stop my Heart from being open.

There are a number of reasons for this, but I think, in general, had life experiences in the third dimension, incarnation after incarnation, they became very leery about keeping their Hearts open, because of all of the Soul wounding that was going on, and actually, the danger of keeping the Heart open. It is a very valiant thing to do; this is what I think about that.

And the other thing is that, when one person’s Heart is open, and they are not the group leader, then the group leader looks bad in that regard ... Because the Heart is the Source of great .. of incredible … outpouring of energy. And it makes a person a very powerful co-creator of Reality … a very, very powerful person, whether they be male or female. And so, it makes the leader of a group look bad, if somebody else has all that power.

And not only that. The state of Soul wounding in the world today is such that people long for that power and that relationship with the Divine. They long to no longer be separate from all that they are. And they do not know how to reach out for that.

And so the result of that is, when they run across someone whose heart is open, they latch onto that person … in any chakra that they can. Anytime that person is feeling weak or tired, or is sound asleep, the fractals of these people … the Soul wounding … the Shadow of aspects of these otherwise very good people latch on and leach energy from the person whose Heart is open. (B4)

So there are a number of things going on like that. And Christ describes this very well. He says …

9 “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”

So in finding our Hearts we will go through this journey of discovering hatred, and coming to terms with hatred, and then turning to the Light. That is what I feel.

All right, this is getting kind of long, so I am going to continue in another video. It is pretty interesting reading, do you not think?

C. END TIMES: FALSE PROPHETS, INIQUITY … MATTHEW 24:11-14

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I am continuing with the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 24, which speaks of the End Times, the days that we are in right now … And with my own thoughts about it, which may help, in some cases. And so if you like them, please consider them; but if you do not like them, I hope you will not take offense.

So we are now up to verse 11. I am going to take the next couple of verses one by one, because they speak about ‘divers’ topics, as they say in the Bible. Verse 11 …

11 “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”

These are the End Times; but they are the Beginning of the New Times too. But the end always brings concerns and upsets and fears for safety, because it is the end of something. I have spoken before of our body cells, which are very conservative little beings. We have plenty of them, and they create quite a bit of anxiety in times of change.

So what happens, when we feel upset and anxious, and we do not know where to turn, is: We turn to other people to help us.

I have spoken before of the ‘False Ascension Matrix’ (C1). This is a notion from the “Ascension Glossary.” What we have is, especially men, who are used to being the leaders of society right now, They are trying to think, with their left brains, what to do about all this. They know that change is happening; they know that their families and their groups, and those people that they look out for, are upset about things. And with their left brain, they are constructing mental filters (C2) to carry their groups through the Ascension process.

But the thing is, the left brain is not capable of that. It is like Geometry: The left brain proceeds from a set of principles that are posited. And it creates a construct based on that. If somebody had not come up with those principles or postulates (C3) through intuition, in the first place, there would be no Geometry.

And so, the left brain comes up with a bunch of principles (or ‘postulates’) and then creates a construct, and then the leader informs the people about this construct. These constructs keep changing, over and over again, because the Change is happening … nothing old fits, really.

And so, that may be what they mean by ‘false prophets’ is that these are people who mean very well, but they are creating False Ascension Matrices, because they are working through their left brain, or through their third-eye point divorced from their hearts.

Eventually, it is all going to settle down into the center of our being, our Heart chakras. Keeping in mind that our Heart chakras are not just where the physical heart is; there is a Low Heart just around the diaphragm; there is a High Heart located at the thymus gland. And so there is the Low, the Middle, and the High Heart. [Some say there are also a Left Heart and a Right Heart on either side of the chest.] And so these create a very dynamic engine for seeing us through these Changes.

And those leaders who turn to their Heart energy … the energy of Christ consciousness … will, in fact, switch from the false things that they have been trying to help people with, to a truer version of how they can become the Prophets of this Age.

That was a long sentence! And a long explanation for Verse 11. And I think there is time for another verse or so. Verse 12 …

12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

Alright. So I have spoken of this in a prior video. What we have is massive Soul wounding. I prefer the notion of Soul wounding, myself, as an explanation for what is going on. It is called ‘iniquity’ in the Bible … meaning ‘evil actions’. And these are described elsewhere in the Bible very definitely.

So I was looking around for a definition of iniquity, and I looked to the chapter before … Matthew, Chapter 23, verse 37. I like this verse because it describes ‘iniquity’ in terms that are not like the usual list of adultery, like the Ten Commandments … failing to honor your parents, and so on. We know about that list of iniquities. But here is a new definition in verse 37 of Chapter 23 of Matthew. I like it because Christ is speaking from his Heart here. And he is describing something that we can aspire to. He says …

Insert: Matthew 23:37 (KJV, public domain)

37  “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!” 

So this is very good. Christ is saying that, out of our concern for our social position, we may act in an iniquitous manner towards people who look to Spirit … as the Sanhedrin did to Christ; the religion of Judaea at the time was killing the prophets; killing the true prophets and stoning them, the people who were sent to uplift all humanity.

And then He said how he would behave: He would gather the children that they socially ostracized, like a mother hen gathering her chickens together. He would gather all humankind; he would not think about whether people were worth it, or whether people were not worth it. But, like a mother, he would shelter and protect everyone.

So this is the difference, I feel, between iniquity and Christ consciousness: Whether we feel our Hearts towards all humankind, or whether we act within the strict and stringent limits of societal boundaries.

To read the verse again … verse 12 in Chapter 24 of Matthew: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

So, I feel, let us just think about social strictures there, and let us think about how we can loosen those social stricture and those group affinities, and those national affiliations. And how we can stop warring, and just feel Love. Feel Love; we do not have to feel love for anything. Just feel Love, feel Appreciation. And in that way, even though Soul wounding is everywhere, the Love of our own Hearts will not wax cold.

All right, now let us go on to Matthew, Chapter 24, verses 13 and 14. These speak of Faith, I feel. It goes like this …

13 “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

So, in the prior verses of this Chapter, Christ has spoken of all the things we have to overcome …

  • He has spoken of the wars, and the rumors of war.
  • And he has spoken of the beginning of sorrows, or of our birth pains during the Change, as some translations have it.
  • And then he has spoken of the prophets being persecuted or killed,
  • And he has spoken of the false prophets that we need to come to terms with,
  • And how Love will die because iniquity abounds …

And then he says: “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” 

So we have to have Faith. We have to have endurance. We have to have fortitude. We have to know that we can get through this; each of us … every human being … can get through this process.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world …” The Gospel … the Good News … the news that Love is very important: “… love thy neighbour as thyself.” –Matthew 19:19 (KJV, public domain)  Let us love God first, I feel. And when we establish this, in our own Hearts, we will be home free, do you not think?

“…  and then shall the end come.” The end of what? The end of the sorrows … The sorrows that we have been experiencing for all these many lifetimes in these, the Third and Fourth Dimensions. And a new Kingdom will be there: The Kingdom of Love; the Kingdom of Christ consciousness. 

So … Faith! And we will go on with this Chapter in a little while.

D. END TIMES: SANCTUARY … MATTHEW 24:15-22

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I am continuing on with a reading of Matthew, Chapter 24, because it speaks of the End Times, and here we are, in the midst of those things. And I have my own ideas about this so … Blest, if I offer anything of service; and hopefully, not too much trouble if you do not agree. That is fine too.

There is quite a long passage here, that I would not take too literally; I would take it as a state of mind that happens to each of us, as the Changes continue, and as Light pours in, and as our Souls are purified, so that we may enter the Kingdom. But this is a feeling, and it is very graphically described here. So I am reading Matthew, Chapter 24, verses 15-22. It goes like this …

15 “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16  “Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:”

All right now, at this point I would like to say: It seems to me, when people are so upset about the Ascension process, that if they go to the mountains … or maybe to the seashore, or to the desert … if they go away from the places where people are … they will find the help they need there. They will find the peace, and quiet, and the ability to get through that.

So he is saying: Go to the holy place. Would that be a temple or a church, perhaps, if you are still in town? Or if you can find a good mountain retreat? Or if you can just do your best to remove yourself from and become neutral to the mental turmoil in other people that is going on, as the Changes take place?

Ok, so now for this graphic description here …

17 “Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 “Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 “And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”

Alright, so Christ is describing a time when people need to move to a safe place … Perhaps in their own hearts and minds. and away from whatever they are used to consider to be safety. So they need to find a place of sanctuary. They need to discover this new place of sanctuary.

And He is also saying that there are those whom He calls ‘the elect’, for whose sake all this will be shortened … Perhaps those who feel Christ consciousness in the world today, are helping to mitigate all these days of sorrow and Tribulation, so that everyone can survive through them. That is probably it.

So, that is all for now. I will check back with you further on Matthew, Chapter 24, in a new video. Meantime, look for that which creates a sense of safety for you … a sense of appreciation, and joy in the moment … even though other people may be very upset right now.

You know, as Judy Satori (D1) says: To feel the Love, no matter what. And as Peggy Black (D2) says: To feel appreciation and gratitude in some small thing, every day … Not something relating to another person because of all the Soul wounding, but just:

  • how your cat purrs,
  • how the rain patters on the pavement,
  • how the Sun is shining through the leaves of the trees …

… Something simple. Maybe that is our place … what Christ calls ‘the holy place’, when he says “… whoso readeth, let him understand …”

Where is your holy place?

E. END TIMES: CHRIST’S LIGHT … MATTHEW 24:23-28

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Well, I like this bit in Matthew, Chapter 24, very much, because it describes what Christ really is; and what He is not; and how we will know the difference. It starts with verse 23, and it goes like this …

23 “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24  “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25  “Behold, I have told you before.

26 “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.”

So that is through verse 26. And what I am hearing here, is that these false Christs that people propose in the time of Tribulation. These are people who propose that Christ is like a physical person that will save them.

He is saying: I am not some person that you can go to and be with, during this time. So, if they say: “He is in the secret chambers” … or if they say; “He is in desert”  … Do not go out there and look for a human being that is going to create this transformation in you.

And then in the next verse, he describes what he is really like, and this is very interesting. It is verse 27, and it goes like this …

27 “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.”

So he is saying: Christ is like lightning. Christ is a great Light that shines from the East to the West. And Christ strikes and transforms us … This is the energy of Christ consciousness that he is speaking of.

He is not speaking of clinging to another person; he is speaking of personal transformation. He is speaking of the transformation of the whole sky of our Awareness to something lighter and brighter.

Alright. So this is the last verse in this video that I am going to talk about: It looks like verse 28. I took some time puzzling over this, but now I have a possible meaning for you. The verse goes like this …

28 “For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

And I spent some time wondering about eagles and carcasses, because eagles are considered to be very beautiful, and they are considered to be the national symbol … the emblem … of the United States .. the national bird of the United States. And they are a royal bird, in many traditions.

And here in this verse I think we have that they apparently are carrion birds, and that they feed roadkill? … that is carcasses; the carcass is a dead animal, right?

And then there are a bunch of eagles gathered together there. And first I wondered … because of the great heights to which we place eagles … I wondered if maybe the eagles were the elect?

But then I got to thinking that maybe the eagles are like the great Sanhedrin of Judaea … which could be translated into the great religious leaders of today: Those who are very interested in maintaining the status quo, because they have a leadership position, and it is very important for them to be ‘higher’ than everybody else, and like that, you know …

In response to which I have been trying this clair affirmation lately: I am higher; I am higher … And that shakes people in groups up so much, on the clair plane, that they just freak out and go away; which is alright, because my primary relationship is with God.

So the eagles, in this case, I am thinking Christ may have meant were like the hypocritical religious leaders of His time, who were always pretending to be one thing … He described in the previous chapter. They pretend to fast, and then they put dirt all over their faces, and then everybody thinks that they are doing the right thing …

But, He is saying, when you do things for God, do not let anybody else know. Just do them. And He goes to great lengths about that; about how people are pretending to be this or that. Let me see … Here we have Matthew, Chapter 23:27 … Oh, scathing words from Christ! …

Insert: Matthew 23:27 (KJV, public domain)

27  “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.” 

So this I relate to this other verse that we are studying right now. See, here he describes the scribes and Pharisees … ‘whited sepulchres’ … looking really pure and white on the outside; but then, on the inside, ” … full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.” 

And this goes very well with this other verse that we were reading in Matthew 24:28 … which goes, “For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered …” 

So, let us say the ‘eagles’ are the hypocritical Pharisees and scribes … and/or, in our case … and hitting close to home … the elite of our particular religious groups; the leadership of our religious groups. I know you do not want to hear this, if you are reading this. But it seems to be what Christ is saying.

So he is saying: “… wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered …”

  • Suppose the carcass were our Soul wounding … the Soul wounding of the congregations.
  • Suppose the leadership of the congregations is further increasing our Soul wounding by leading us, not in the context of Christ consciousness, but in the context of relative morality of congregations …
  • Suppose the leadership of the congregations is participating in scapegoating and pillorying other people …
  • Suppose it is engaged in witch hunts, and witch burnings, all for the sake of maintaining the status quo

So, if it is involving the congregations in these types of activities; of putting down other people and proselytizing other people who do not have the same faith, in the name of Christ consciousness … No. This is causing the Darkness and Shadows of our own Souls, actually. It is like this: It is creating Soul wounding.

And they look good: They look like eagles … This is how I am reading this … But they are gathering around what is ‘dead’ in us.

So we have to turn to the Light; the Lightning that is Christ consciousness. And we have to turn away from this Darkness of trying to kill other people; of creating this ‘carcase’ in the world. Do not gather around the wounding of other people. Do not stand by those qualities of leadership that allow this.

And that is all I have for you today. It is a weighty topic, and something worth consideration …

  • What should we support in our spiritual leaders, and what should we avoid?
  • Do we owe them infinite obedience?
  • Or, like Christ, should we question the scribes and Pharisees, and determine for ourselves, what to look up to, and what not to look up to?

F. END TIMES: THE VOID … MATTHEW 24:29-31

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

And I have for you, in this discussion, albeit no doubt arousing a lot of different ideas in your own head … which is a really good thing! … my own discussion of Matthew 24:29-31… which verses are very interesting. I will describe them one by one, and talk about them.

29 “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: …”

Well so, this is a very vivid image, is it not? And, is it true? Or is it just allegorical? We could look at it either way: We could look for physical signs like that.

Or we could look at it as an allegory about the change of consciousness that is coming upon humankind. And this is the way that I would like to consider it today …

When Christ says the sun shall “… be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven …” I think it is worth considering he may be describing what some of the new prophets and sages have just gone through in the last year … what they call the Void. (F1)

The Void is apparently a place we pass through in transitioning from what we knew as Reality in the old days in the third dimension and the fourth dimension … into the fifth dimension of Christ consciousness. Between the fourth and the fifth dimension apparently exists a space called the Void. And in it there are no physical objects … You are all alone with your Awareness … your consciousness.

And so, in that sense, in that allegorical sense, we could say the sun shall “… be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven …”

And in that space of the Void, where we cannot relate to physical things anymore; we cannot even see anything anymore … where there is only nothingness … Then, in that space, must we have Faith. Faith in God, to lead us through that … as we have no other context.

… the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: …” It is the Dark Night of the Soul, I feel. It is the time when nothing prior makes any sense anymore; and when, in fact, the beingness is evolving into a completely new state. 

Such a thing has happened to me, on a couple of occasions … That I have actually lost all sense awareness. I have stood up, and everything has been completely black; I had no context of kinesthetic sense, or anything. And so, when it comes to that, I stand. And I wait for the will of God to manifest.

And I think it is from that space, too … according to what the new seers and prophets say … from that space that we will ascend into Christ consciousness. Some people call it, today, ‘new software upgrades’ … changes in our mental minds that allow us to relate to reality differently. So here I say …

  • Just hold the line in Faith.
  • Know that all is well, even if everything dissolves around us.

And moving on to the next verse …

30 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

Well, so … Let me offer you something here that is very untraditional: Suppose the ‘Son of man’ described here is you!

” …  and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn …” You know, when we come into our power, through Christ consciousness, our families … all those that we relate to, and like that, do mourn, for the connection that we have amongst people is dissolved. The tribal awareness that we have, is eclipsed by our awareness of Christ consciousness, and our alignment with God. 

So! Let us just say that you are the ‘Son of man’ … You become just like him.

” … and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” … So that is how you are going to look to other people who have not yet achieved Christ consciousness. Something worth considering!

And on, to the final verse to be discussed in this video …

31 “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

With the ‘sound of a trumpet’ … They say that, when the Heart is fully opened … the Heart chakra is fully opened … lots of times you hear the sound of a trumpet. (F2) Would not that make sense, here? So, Christ is coming, with his angels, and the sound of trumpets … the sound of hearts opening ….

” … and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” … 

So according to this last verse, it might be you that are doing this gathering, right? Your consciousness … your Christ consciousness … is gathering together the Christ consciousness of all people everywhere. Or you could say Christ … through you … is doing that thing. And you are working with the angels to do that. What a wonderful job description!

Well, we will continue with this chapter in another video. You all, take care …

G. END TIMES: THE TIME OF NEW BEGINNING … MATTHEW 24:32-33

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Continuing onward with Matthew 24, verses 32 and 33: And these are hopeful verses that are often overlooked, I feel; because the preceding verses described a great many things that might be happening … either truly, in the physical sense; or allegorically, in our consciousness and in our psyches, as we turn to the Kingdom of God … as we turn to Christ consciousness.

So but here now, I feel, He is describing something very hopeful, which I would characterize as a New Beginning. It goes like this …

32 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 “So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”

So He is describing all these events as signs of Spring … the signs of the fig tree, the bearer of fruit, putting forth leaves.

And He is describing this coming time as the time when ‘summer is nigh’ … We are almost to the Summertime of Our Souls … The Great Summer of Light and Love and Joy and fulfillment of all the things that our Souls are capable of, in the real world … capable of, while standing on Earth as humankind … capable of changing, transforming our consciousness, and enjoying the Shift of consciousness of all humankind, as we all come to our powers, and co-create the New Reality.

And these two verses are substantiation from Christ, that it is not desolation that we need to worry about; these are just signs that the fig tree is about to put forth leaves.

So here we are. We are seeing all the things … even if we look at the daily newspaper, we are seeing all the things that are prophesied in this Chapter. And Christ is asking us to keep our Hearts open and hopeful. And to know, though the End is near, that Spring has arrived, and Summer is on the way.

Those are a pretty good two verses, do you not think? Very cool.

H. END TIMES: ON BEING AWAKE AND AWARE … MATTHEW 24:34-51

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

So we are coming down to the end of Matthew, Chapter 24, which is a description of the End Times. And right now I am on verse 34, and following. We might just finish up with the chapter in this video because the thoughts in the verses are really just one thought, even though they describe a number of different things. So I will start right now on that. First, Christ says …

34 “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”

Now, what could He mean by that? … Because that generation did pass, and those things were not fulfilled. Is that not so?

But I do not really think, in hindsight, that that is what he meant. I think what he is setting up, here, in this last bit … in this last description … is that we must be in a state of conscious awareness of the way things are, so as to know the time of the Change, the time of the Shift, and the time of the Ascension.

Clearly He was not speaking to that generation; He was speaking to the Awareness that we must have, in order to successfully go through the Change and achieve Christ consciousness. That is all I have for you, for that particular verse. But let us continue onward …

35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”

So, the world, as we know it, will end. But the Truth of His words will sustain you through this Change. His words are the important thing here … and not the physical reality.

36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

So here, He is contradicting what He said in the first verse there … He is saying: Nobody knows really what that day and hour will be; only God knows that … God the Father.

37 “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 “And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Alright. So He is saying: You be Noah. You be in the Ark, through Faith in God. You be ready, no matter what. Nobody knows when the moment and the time is, except for God. So this whole passage, that we are talking about in this video, has to do with the state of mental preparedness and Faith. And to continue on …

40 “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 “Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”

So, what is He saying? He said there is one man in the field who is taken and one who is left; there is one woman grinding at the mill who is taken, and the other if left. Why is that? Because one is ready, and one is not. 

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” The one who is awake and aware, is the one who will be prepared. It is the same point, right? See what I mean? And continuing on …

43 “But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44  “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”

So, be ready for the unexpected. You cannot know the exact moment; nobody knows. And so, your house will not be broken into if you are always vigilant, right? You will not suffer a loss and upset in these days if you are ready … if you are prepared.

So now, in the next few verses, Christ is comparing two ways of fulfilling the duty of being a Christian. One is; When you are given a duty, to be always watchful, and always prepared, and to always serve God in the capacity that your Soul has agreed to serve in.

And the other is: When you kind of lose track of what you are doing, and forget the most important thing, which is your duty to serve God and to honor your Soul’s purpose, right?

So He describes it very simply, and much more vividly than I did. He says it like this …

45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant,” … [That is what we aspire to be, right?] … 

45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 “Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.”

So there is a person who is fulfilling the obligation that he has agreed with God to do. And continually fulfilling it, even though God does not seem to be there; even though he feels a sense of separation from God … say, during the sorrows and the tribulations, right?

So that person is still fulfilling his duty, even though it seems that God is not there; that he is separated from God …

47 “Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.”

Huh! This servant, who is always looking out, and always ready to do God’s bidding, and always ready to fulfill it, even though God appears to be absent … God really appreciates that, and He says He “… shall make him ruler over all his goods.”

Is this a way of saying that such a person, who is united in will, and heart, and mind with God, all the time … that that person will be co-creating the New Reality? … and creating a great sense of abundance in his own life? I think so, yes.

Now Christ describes the opposite. He says …

48 “But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 “And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 “The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 “And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

And  that is the end of this Chapter.

And so Christ is giving a stern admonition about being always on the alert to fulfill our duty to God no matter what the circumstances seem like … no matter how far God seems to be from us. And not to slack off and turn away from the Soul’s purpose, and from our desire to align with God … Not to turn away from that, just because it seems like these days are very difficult.

So on that note, this is the end of that Chapter. And I wish you all Godspeed, and God’s greatest blessing.

Take care.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
