“Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
Jesus came, in the name of the Lord. Yet He did not say, in this instance, “… he that cometh in my name”—in Jesus’ name—but “… in the name of the Lord”. The name of the Lord is I AM. Uranda brought the name of the Lord: I AM, he said, and pointed to the fact of the true Vine which found focus in the LORD of Lords and KING of Kings. Martin came, and brought to focus the name of the Lord: I AM.
“Ye shall not see me henceforth,” ever again on earth, till the name of the Lord is spoken through His body, through the true Vine. This is the day when His Body reveals His presence in the earth—gone is the misconception that the individual manifestation of the One called Jesus would appear again on earth as an individual. He moved through the experience of fallen man, the focus of mankind, in an individual sense, and proved that it was possible for divine Man to be on earth, in this day, just the way things are. Because of that, it was possible for mankind to come through. The concept of the so-called wheel of birth and death no longer applied to Him. He finished the work in that incarnation, and the next step was for His body to finish it in the sense of all mankind on this planet.
“I AM the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman… Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples”—my body on earth.
In Isaiah there is a remarkable chapter depicting mankind as he presently is, in all the degradation of today! But the first verse is poignantly beautiful:
“Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill;
“And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.”
“My wellbeloved”—our Great King, and those who have come in His Name (Uranda and Martin)—“hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill.” This planet, of all in this solar system, this family in the heavens, is the one fitted for mankind. He could not exist anywhere else. “A very fruitful hill” indeed—what Immanuel Velikovsky called the optimal place in the solar system for man, the only place.
“And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof,” he prepared it, with just the right amount of oxygen, soil, water, influences of the other planets, the sun and moon—just right. “And planted it with the choicest vine.” Into this vineyard he “put the man whom he had formed.” The vineyard is called the Garden, in Genesis. Isaiah called God’s crowning creation, Man made in His image and likeness, the body of God on earth, “the choicest vine.”
Isaiah said that the wellbeloved looked for the vine to bring forth grapes and it brought forth wild grapes. The wording, of the same thing, in Genesis, is: “Cursed is the ground for thy sake … thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth.”
The Tree of Genesis and the Vine of Isaiah are the same. In Revelation we read: “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life.” To eat of the tree of life, as man was created to do, is to let the true vine be restored, and that means the Body on earth, which is intertwined, in love, in true oneness. It cannot be done any other way. In the chapter on the Vine Jesus said, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” It is a wonder and a joy to see this coming on earth now, in these days, a body of responding angels who are learning the true meaning of love, as He has loved us. How has He loved us? By finishing the work which He was given to do, by letting it be absolute, making it possible for this Body now to have form. That same individual absoluteness of oneness with the Lord, I AM, is what is allowing His Body to finish the work for this planet, this vineyard of our wellbeloved, with its “choicest vine.”
I note an interesting reference in this chapter in Isaiah, to “a tower in the midst of it.” Velikovsky has hinted at a provision, in the early days of this planet, whereby a connection was present in a very definite way with Saturn, and referred to it as a tower—albeit probably of the substance of Light. There is the probability that man interfered with this, in whatever way (perhaps what we would call space projects, etc.) and that this is the real meaning behind the story of the Tower of Babel, where man’s self-active function seeking to build an edifice “whose top may reach unto heaven,” brought upon this earth the deluge, the cosmic catastrophe which nearly destroyed the planet and did much harm to other bodies in the solar system.
It was perfect, this vineyard of the wellbeloved. There was “a tower in the midst of it, and also (he) made a winepress therein.” Everything was perfect for life to manifest on earth, the means whereby the grapes could be made into wine, the wine of life. “And he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.” The manifestation of life on earth was out from under the control of the husbandman, of the Spirit of God, and it went wild—certainly a description of mankind today!
But, the One whose vineyard it is, the wellbeloved, created it. He experienced the Way by which it can all be made Right, and His body is present now—to Finish the Work which He has given us to do.
“The Tabernacle of the Sun”—all the process in the heavens—Man is the microcosm of all that, and “the tabernacle of God is with men.” Here is God’s crowning creation, “made in His image and likeness,” to bring to focus that creation out there—the Tabernacle of the Sun (our solar system) and of the SUN of Suns.
It is all the Tabernacle of the Sun (physical symbol of God) and the actual symbol, the highest-plane spiritual manifestation of it all, is with men—is all contained in man’s Being. The design is the same in Man, complete, whole, perfect, as in the Cosmos. Contained in him also are all the kingdoms of this world, animal, etc.
“Ye are the temple of the living God,” we have heard. The Temple of God is with men. The part is all that is seen—with outer vision, the visible, tangible form—yet that is not the form. The Design is in the Invisible realm, as proved when the indwelling Spirit leaves the physical substance it had inhabited; or rather, had drawn to its own form and design.
