I’ve received a number of emails today from new readers to the site who have suggested that they are Christians and hold to the scenario of the End Times more favored in Revelation than the one featured on this site. Among those events they see as happening are the rise of the anti-Christ, Armageddon, and the Second Coming of Christ. I’ve been asked to comment on this set of predictions.
I’m at a disadvantage at the moment in that I don’t have the time to actually track down all the material from my sources on what they say is upcoming in the period between now and Dec. 21, 2012.
I’ve written a number of articles on the subject, which you’ll find if you scroll down the righthand column. But let me give you their version to the best I can remember it.
First, as to the scenario in Revelation. My understanding from SaLuSa, Matthew Ward, Kryon, and other sources who address this question is that for a number of reasons the Revelation version of the End Times will not be occurring.
For one thing the energies are rising on the planet and lifting us out of the range of vibrations in which those events could happen. For these rising energies we have higher beings from other worlds, dimensions, and rungs of evolution to thank.
Another way of speaking about this same subject is to say that we are on a different timeline, which does not feature the anti-Christ, Armageddon and the Second Coming in the same way that is usually meant by many. (I’ll be returning to the subject of the Second Coming later).
If I were to say more about this perspective, I might say that a timeline existed in which the Armageddon scenario occurred, but that is not the timeline we are now on. To be more specific, if you and I are having this conversation at this time, then you and I are probably not on the Armageddon timeline. It could very well be that others are on it. That I don’t know about.
A third way of speaking about this subject is to say that a Divine Plan exists for the Ascension of the universe at this time, or, perhaps more accurately, for the Ascension of a part of the universe; another part will not ascend by their own choice. Though dark forces may try to defeat this Ascension, what the Creator has decreed cannot be countermanded. To ensure that this Divine Plan is realized, the civilizations that seeded the Earth with humanity, along with many other space societies, are here with the spirit hierarchy to assist the inhabitants of this planet to ascend if they so desire.
Now to some specifics of the Armageddon scenario. You can see that the Middle-Eastern or Arab nations are in fact not massing for Armageddon but instead are releasing themselves from the grip of the dark powers – in their case, from a series of dictators who have held sway over their countries. My understanding is that this release of Middle-Eastern as well as other nations will continue until the world is free and democratic. There will be no head-on collision between Israel and the Arab states or America and Russia, China, or Iran.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, our space brethren have denied the dark forces the ability to detonate nuclear devices on the planet, under it, or in space. But nuclear warfare is part of the Armageddon scenario, is it not? So no to nuclear warfare. If you need any proof of this, much exists on this site if you scroll down the righthand column. Or you may go to Youtube and watch videos on the “Hastings Panel,” who also discuss galactic oversight of nuclear munitions.
Now to the Second Coming itself. Well, first let me say that I love Jesus as much as anyone alive, but my understanding from messages purporting to come from him, from the spiritual hierarchy of which he is a part, and from others is that our understanding of the Second Coming associated with the Ascension timeline is not the same as theirs. But before going to what the Second Coming appears to mean relative to Ascension, let me say that there are also several other meanings to the term “Second Coming.”
One meaning is that it refers to a stage of enlightenment where Jesus is seen to come for the spiritual seeker and ushers that seeker into his presence and illumination. I’ll be referring more to that below. Or, if not Jesus per se, then the Christ Light, is seen by that seeker. Here is an example of the Christ Light being seen, in the words of Fourteenth-Century mystic Jan Ruusbroec:
“In the abyss of this darkness in which the loving spirit has died to itself, God’s revelation and eternal life have their origin, for in this darkness an incomprehensible light is born and shines forth; this is the Son of God, in whom a person becomes able to see and to contemplate eternal life.” (1)
“It is Christ, the light of truth, who says, ‘See,’ and it is through him that we are able to see, for he is the light of the Father, without which there is no light in heaven or on earth.” (2)
A second meaning of “Second Coming” applies to one who has been a follower of Jesus and goes to join him in the afterlife. The postmortem Julia Ames provides us with an example of that variety of the Second Coming. But that example is so long that, rather than break the flow of this article with it, I locate it to footnote 3. There Julia finds her Savior on a heavenly plane. This depicted scenario is both an example of an individual going to live with Jesus and an example of Jesus enlightening a follower in person rather than the Christ Light enlightening a person.
My understanding is that the closest scenario to the “Second Coming” normally associated with Revelation and Armageddon is what the sources I follow refer to as the “Return of the Masters.” And Jesus will in fact return as part of it but so will the great masters of all religions and of the Perennial Philosophy that lies behind all religions. Those masters will include Sanat Kumara, Sananda Kumara, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Mohammed, Krishna, Rama, and many, many others. (4)
They will come in order to reassure the inhabitants of Earth that the proceedings leading up to Ascension occurring before the eyes of this generation are real, valid and legitimate. They come as well to introduce us to our galactic family. And they also come to help us prepare for Ascension.
This is my view of the situation. It may not be yours. There needn’t be animosity between us because our views differ. One of our scenarios will occur and we need only wait to see which one it is.
I’ll tell you some of the anticipated milestones in my scenario so that you can have the benefit of noticing if they are occurring and deciding whether you wish to join us in this scenario:
(1) The dark cabal which has kept this planet in a condition approaching servitude will fall. You’ll hear startling reports of people like former presidents being arrested and put on trial for treason. You’ll hear shocking descriptions of events like 9/11 or the Haitian earthquake described as the acts of members of our own governments. You’ll see corporations and financial organizations falling or being totally reorganized.
(2) At some point you’ll see the governments of the world acknowledging the presence of visitors from other planets here to help the spiritual hierarchy and us with Ascension. This same galactic family has helped us subdue the dark forces, largely outside our gaze.
(3) The Light forces will introduce a new economy, commonly known as NESARA (National Economic Security and Reformation Act), which will see abundance spread across the globe and an end to economic privilege and inequity.
(4) You’ll see governments reorganized so that they serve the people.
(5) You’ll see new energy, transport, construction, agricultural and other technologies introduced and the pollution and destruction of the Earth reversed.
Let me stop there because that surely will be enough “signs” to show you that Armageddon will not be happening and that a different scenario is destined to occur.
One final note. To ascend, one must choose that path. No one among those who will assist us will broach our free will. If we choose not to ascend, that choice will be honored. It is said by one of our sources, Matthew Ward, that many followers of the Anti-Christ/Armageddon scenario will choose not to ascend, but instead leave the Earth. (5) Here is Matthew:
“Religion forms the belief system that extends to all facets of billions of lives, and the initial reaction for the majority of adherents will be total rejection of the [Ascension] revelations, which if accepted, would shatter the very foundation of their lives. … For many, it will be too painful to keep on living in a world where the ‘anti-Christ’ for the Christians, and by whatever other terms equally apply to those firmly in the grasp of other religions, has taken over the planet.” (5)
Many Christians see their salvation coming only through the personal intercession of Jesus and by no other means. Key passages of the New Testament that ground this belief are Jesus’s statements that he is the way, the truth, and the life and that no one cometh to the Father but by the Son. However we heard Jan Ruusbroec, above, identify the “Son” as the Light which he saw in the experience of enlightenment. Indeed no one can come to the Light of the Father save after first having seen this same Light in the more circumscribed form of the Son, Christ, or Self.
This Light is called the Self or soul by some religions, the “Atman” and “Buddha nature” by others, the “Son” and the “Christ” by Jesus. I suggest that this is the “I” that Jesus was speaking of which is truly the way, the truth, and the life. I look at this line of inquiry more deeply in an article on this site entitled, “What Might Jesus Have Meant by Saying ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life’?” (6)
I humbly submit that we have failed to understand, for millennia, what Jesus truly meant by the passages cited above. I personally would be greatly saddened to think that many people would choose not to ascend because of an honest misunderstanding.
In my view, our future is grand and golden and no one who has been waiting for the Second Coming will be in any way disappointed. So there you have the 2012 Ascension perspective on what is coming. Now let us both watch the signs of the times, by which we are enabled to see what lies in store for the world – Armageddon or Ascension.

(3) Here is Julia’s account of the Second Coming of her Lord:
“When my Guide came he spoke to me in a very sweet, strong voice that had in it the confidence of the Invisible. And I was thrilled through and through with its note, which did not seem strange to me. Nor was this strange for he had often been with me in my earth-life, although I had never seen him. I recognized him as an old and familiar part of myself and this at first made me think that it was a woman. And, when he said, “Come!” I did not hesitate. There was, as it were, a natural response to what seemed as the prompting of your own conscience. That is often the case. We have all our guides. These angels, unknown and unseen to us, prompt us to all good actions and dissuade us from evil. They are with us in thought and we often receive their warnings as if they were the promptings of our own spirit. So they are; but the spirit which prompts is quite outside our own conscious self. (All quotes are from Julia [Julia T. Ames] through W.T. Stead, medium, After Death. A Personal Narrative. New York: George H. Doran, n.d.; c. 1914, 72-3.)
“When we were journeying I spoke little. My thoughts were busy and yet I was not conscious of even thinking, only of feeling and seeing, drinking in at every point new impressions. When we seemed to be arriving at a new world, I spoke. I asked my guide, ‘Where is this? Is it Heaven?’ He replied, ‘Wait and see. You will find those there who will teach you what you want to know.’
“The place was very pleasant to behold. The air was sweet and there was a delicious fragrance of flowers in June. The world – for it was a world we were approaching – seemed not unlike our old world, but it was different – there was nothing to jar. The sense of restful peace and contented love was everywhere. The place had a placid smile of tranquil joy.” (p. 77.)
“I found myself in a great expanse of landscape where I had never been before. I was alone; that is, I saw no one. But you are never really alone. We are always living in the presence of God. But I saw no one. Then I heard a voice. I only heard the words. ‘Julia, He who saved thee would fain speak with thee.’ I listened, but no words other than these were spoken.
“Then I said – ‘Who is it that speaks?’ And, behold, a flaming fire – really like fire though in human shape. I was afraid. Then he spoke and said, ‘Be not afraid. It is who am appointed to teach the secret things of God.’ Then I saw that the brightness as of fire was only the brightness that comes from the radiant love of the Immortals.
“Then the flame-bright One said to me, ‘Julia, behold your Saviour!’ And when I looked I saw Him. He was sitting on a seat close to me, and He said, ‘Beloved, in My Father’s House are many mansions; here am I whom you have loved so long. I have prepared a place for you.’
“And I said, ‘Where, oh, my Lord?’ He smiled and, in the brightness of that smile, I saw the whole landscape change as the Alps change in the sunset, which I saw so often from the windows of my hotel at Lucerne. Then I saw that I was not alone, but all around and above were fair and loving forms, some of those whom I had known, others of whom I had heard, while some were strange. But all were friends and the air was full of love. And in the midst of all was He, my Lord and Saviour. He was as a Man among men. He was full of the wonderful sweet mildness which you are acquainted with in some of the pictures that have been painted by the Italian Fra Angelico. He had an admirable look of warm affection, which was as the very breath of life to my soul. He is with us always.
“This is Heaven – to be with Him. You cannot understand how the consciousness of His presence makes the atmosphere of this world so different from that with you. There are many things I wish I could write to you, but I cannot, nor could you understand them. I can only tell you that He is more than we ever have imagined. He is the Source and Giver of all good gifts. All that we know of what is good and sweet and pure and noble and lovable are but faint reflections of the immensity of the glory that is His. And He loves us with such tender love!” (pp. 43-5.)
