Many people around the world intuitively feel that we are living, these days, in the most challenging time, a time when the cycles are changing in the evolution of humankind, which is now transitioning to a new, more spiritual and conscious level of development.
As far back as 1888, Helena Blavatsky, rightfully called the Mother of Modern Spirituality, revealed in her landmark work, The Secret Doctrine, that a change of cycles has occurred more than once on Earth. This process is always accompanied by the most powerful influence of cosmic energies, resulting in climate change on the planet, which in turn causes an increased number of natural disasters. This is exactly what we have been observing in recent times, which means that our present cycle, the fifth, is already coming to its end and, as always, accounts must be reconciled.
However, the fifth cycle of evolution has been aggravated by the most terrible crime — the killing of God, Jesus Christ. Every crime has a punishment, and Earth was supposed to simply have been incinerated as unsuitable for further evolution. Yet, as the ancient records tell us, He believed that humanity would reform, and changed the flow of Time by His Will, dividing it into two channels. One Time flowed into the evolutionary stream for those who have accepted Christ. The other Time was diverted into a two-thousand-year probationary period to give people time to recognise the whole gravity of the crime they had committed. Given one last chance, they were provided with everything, both power and wealth, so that they could show themselves in the best light, paying for their crime with Love as Christ taught. And the time to examine how humanity has coped with this probationary period has been named the Last Judgement.
These two streams of Time joined ‘in the year 1999, in the seventh month’, as Nostradamus predicted, namely from 19 July to 11 August 1999. It was then that a total solar eclipse took place, which was accompanied by a parade of planets. The planets arranged themselves into the shape of a cross, the sign of the Son of Man in heaven, indicated in Matthew 24:29–30 as the sign heralding the Second Coming of Christ.
19 July is a sacred date associated with the manifestation of energies of Sirius, something which has been known since ancient times. Thus, the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in such a way so that on 19 July, on the Day of the Sun God Ra, Sirius appeared in the vertical corridor and illuminated the whole interior chamber of the pyramid where the Mysteries occurred. As we know, Christianity borrowed much from ancient religions, such as, for example, the celebration of Christmas on 25 December, which has been the Day of the Sun since time immemorial. In this way, the symbolism of the ancient Sun God has been rightly identified with Christ, and that is why the date of 19 July plays such an important role as well.
By 19 July 1999, all of humanity had been divided into four groups:
1) those who had already chosen the Light;
2) those who were fighting to make their choice for the Light;
3) those who had consciously chosen the darkness;
4) those who were asleep (the majority of humanity).
Today one can find prophecies, based on the study of the Bible and the Quran, saying that the Hour of the Last Judgement will come in the second half of 2017, and then the Messianic era will begin. This is true, because, as the sages of the Himalayas say, Christ has granted another timespan of 18 years.
So, by 19 July 2017, every person on Earth will have summed up the results of their numerous lifetimes during the fifth cycle of evolution, which is to say that everyone will consciously or unconsciously have made their final choice. And after this date, only two groups of humanity will remain: those who will have joined the Light, and who therefore will be entitled to a place in the sixth cycle, and those who will remain in the darkness.
As we known from The Secret Doctrine, the human race of the third cycle (the Lemurians) were destroyed by fire, while those of the fourth cycle (the Atlanteans) were swept away by the water that is depicted in the Bible as the Deluge. A similar scenario for the completion of the fifth cycle was actually a reality, about which prominent prophets, such as Edgar Cayce, warned. However, the spiritual development of humanity allowed the Forces of Light to prevent giant cataclysms and to reduce them to the minimum level permitted by Karma. This points to the fact that people have nevertheless begun to live up to the hopes set for them, and that Christ did not grant us the probationary period in vain.
Therefore, the Last Judgement will end on 19 July 2017 just as unnoticeably as it started in the year 1999. However, this does not mean that the consequences of the conscious or unconscious choice of each person will be invisible to them. We can say that after the year 2017, the Law of Karma, which has been postponed by the Will of Christ for those who persecuted Him, will come into full force, meting out Good in exchange for good, and treating evil with Justice.
Of course, everything is subject to the power of human will, and a person through their aspiration may change their choice to some degree even after the year 2017, as long as they are in a physical form on Earth. But later, in the Higher Worlds, this will be rather difficult or even impossible, because they will have entered the layers that are consonant with each of them.
In every country, there are holy places that attract a large number of people, and if you have such an opportunity, you can visit them on this day, showing reverence to the Higher Forces. Thus, through global prayer, whether uttered in such a powerful place or simply wherever the Great Day finds you, you can make an invaluable contribution toward the triumph of the Light.
In conclusion it should be said that if the energy number of those who choose the Light surpasses that of those who choose the darkness, then, in the future, we can anticipate the Second Coming of Christ in the Glorious Body in which He ascended into Heaven two thousand years ago. But how soon this long-awaited Event will come to pass will depend upon all of us, upon the awakening of our hearts.
Zinovia Dushkova, Ph.D., is an award-winning Russian author and researcher of ancient mysteries. Her spiritual quest has taken her to remote Buddhist monasteries and sacred Abodes hidden within mountains and deserts in Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia, and India, where she has studied ancient manuscripts inaccessible to Western researchers. Thus, she gained admittance to the secret Book of Dzyan, the stanzas of which were first revealed by Helena Blavatsky, forming the basis of The Secret Doctrine. A new excerpt from this mysterious manuscript is published in The Book of Secret Wisdom.
