Class of the Golden Cycle
Lessons Learned
The Remnant of the House of Israel
Adeptship by Free Will


Good evening, sons and daughters of God. It gives me good pleasure to address you after long centuries of being apart from this evolution. Now from the ascended state I speak to you out of the love fount of my heart.

I come, then, to tell you of the lessons learned–lessons that I have learned, lessons that the Suernis have learned and lessons that you have learned.

Of the two million who came with the Lord Christ to the land of Suern, who were his adherents and had considerable development of the Christ embodied within them, the one million who [eventually] ascended were in a state of higher love and higher grace. It was by their love for the living Christ and the source whence he had come that they ascended from that land.

The one million who did not ascend, though they had Christ-attainment, did not have the sufficiency of love to sustain that level of devotion that would allow them to merit the ascension. And so the residue of their karma held them back and eventually did overtake them as they did multiply the negative momentums and did gradually let go of the positive momentums. Thus, increment by increment the sacred fire fell, almost unnoticeably yet precipitously.

These individuals have come to be known as the lost sheep of the house of Israel. <1> Thus, when Jesus came two thousand years ago he declared, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” <2>

He came to call to repentance and to call to the path of the Divine Mother these [remaining] one million souls. Most of them are still embodied upon earth today, often in positions of leadership. They retain as a shadow the vestige of the former self and former Christ Light, yet even that shadow of their former days of glory does place them above their peers in many fields.

Thus, it has fallen upon the Messengers of this century and now upon the Mother of the Flame, who speaks before you, to continue the work of going after the one million.

Many of these are self-satisfied in their accomplishments, in their attainments, and yet they do not return [to their former] devotion to the Lord Christ. Others [not of the one million] have come forward to take up the calling to be his disciples and in measures of devotion have outdistanced the original remnant. Yet in ancient times that remnant did have greater attainment than that to which the newer followers of Jesus have attained.

Thus, beloved, the Teachings of the Ascended Masters, given freely, are a specific transfer, a quickening and a knowledge unto those who had them 35,000 years ago in the golden age of Atlantis and in many centuries prior to that; for those souls had been with Jesus long before the fullness of their time came in that golden age.

Therefore understand that the traditions found in the Western Bible contain fragments of this ancient teaching. These fragments have been filled in by the Ascended Masters today, your beloved Saint Germain, your El Morya and, of course, the Lord Jesus Christ. Many others have joined them until the saints robed in white in numberless numbers <3> have come forward to give this teaching not only to those who had it long ago but also to those who will take it up now as a new study, for they are newer souls and have not had this background [that the older souls have had].

The souls who have been on earth for tens of thousands of years and more are familiar with the teaching even if they were not a part of this remnant of the one million. And therefore, when those for whom this teaching is a reading of the law [written] in their inward parts <4>come to our meetings and receive the teaching, they instantly confirm it by the ancient record that is written in their own book of life. <7>

Others who are newer souls, coming more recently to earth, know Jesus only in the more modern sense of the word and they are frightened by the ancient mysteries and the power of the I AM THAT I AM. They know not the intonation of the Word and are not familiar with the sounds that were heard in the temples of Atlantis. Thus, decreeing to them is anathema. They see it as devil worship and they fear even the sight of the Lord Shiva, [whom they perceive] as some ancient god that rivals “their Jesus.”

Jesus does take these souls to temples of Light [in their finer bodies during sleep] to instruct them, but often their fear [of the unfamiliar, together with their indoctrination], is too great and when they return to outer consciousness they are not able to adapt to the path that you have been taught.

By the dispensation of Saint Germain and the Goddess of Liberty, freedom of religion has been guaranteed in America even though that guarantee has been violated horrendously by kidnappings, by deprogrammings, reprogrammings and brainwashing, and by all manner of treachery and intrigue.

Thus [you see] the movements of the Chaldeans and the black priests of Atlantis come again to snuff out the true path of Saint Germain and Jesus Christ. They come to turn the people against that path, and the people unwittingly follow them and know not that in following them they are again rejecting the mighty one of old, the living Jesus Christ, the great emperor of the golden age of Atlantis.

Those black priests who have come again to tear the children from the breast of Jesus are the very same ones who turned the Atlanteans against Jesus and caused them to demand his resignation and withdrawal from the continent. Such a rejection of the Son of God is surely an infamy. And today these ones, who try again to turn the little ones and more advanced souls against him, shall know that the hour of their judgment is come.

May you be as wise as these serpents and not be overtaken by them, [for they] attempt to take from you your lawful path of personal Christhood. May you also understand, beloved, that the poison that goes forth from the lips of these who would destroy the path of the ascension for the many is a poison that colors the mind for many for years to come.

May you pray and decree, as you have been taught, that this interference from the voices of the night, which is once again severely compromising the rising of the Mother Flame and the coming again of a golden age of Aquarius under the leadership of Saint Germain and Jesus Christ, [be stopped].

Now understand, beloved, that I sought with all of my heart to bring the ancient Suernis into a love and a devotion of the Divine Mother. For it is the Divine Mother who gives the attainment and the mastery and the raising up of her Light whereby the individual may have mastery over himself, his circumstances and the elements, may command the forces and the elementals. Beloved ones, this experiment was such a disaster that not since then has a high adept ever been empowered in a position of rulership to compel adherence to the moral code of the conserving of the sacred fire.

To this day, then, the option for self-mastery [is left to the] freewill decision of everyone upon earth. The decision of how to spend the Light of the crystal cord descending from the I AM Presence and the Light of the Divine Mother rising upon the spinal altar remains the province of every individual in the privacy of his personal counsel with God.

That is not to say, however, that the individual who does choose to continue to squander that Light in lasciviousness and all manner of lust is free of the karma of so doing, for the Light belongs to God:  it is the descending Light of Alpha and the rising Light of Omega.

Thus, the path of adeptship is open to all. As you have been counseled to seek power and empowerment for the healing of the nations and for the saving of these cycles [of opportunity] in the last days of the age of Pisces, so I counsel you that the raising up of this Light by pure love and devotion to the Trinity and the Divine Mother will give you that power which you so desire.

The question is:  Will you desire that power enough to allow yourself to be weaned from its misuses and the scattering and the diminishment of your forces?

So, beloved, this is the question that is upon you. Those who love much and are much loved, of them much is expected and they expect much of themselves. And because their love of Jesus is so great, they are able to wield the power of the sacred fire and through mantra and meditation to arrive at the place where their chakras are always filled, their lamps are trimmed, and they have the wherewithal to transfer a Light to those in whom the fire has gone out.

With what Light, then, shall the fire be rekindled in those who have let it go out?

May it be with your Light but may [its transfer] be always by the permission and under the jurisdiction of Jesus Christ. The oil of your lamps is a sacred gift and it must be given [only] to those who are worthy and committed in its use, else you will find yourself running out of your own Light by distributing it without discrimination.

My desire, then, was so very great, and I did learn the lessons of too much love and how too much love for the child, in giving so much, does spoil the child. And therefore this evolution of Suernis who were under me have remained in that state of being spoiled and self-indulgent and have, many of them, remained stubborn and stiff-necked [children] to the present.

Though they were under the guru Moses, though they were under Abraham and the patriarchs, though they have had many opportunities–visited by the Archangels and by servants of God who have dotted the centuries as the Sons of the Solitude come again and again–yet in this day, still in rebellion against those ancient days of my love, they insist upon the misuse of the sacred fire as a continued defiance of me personally!

 They have never forgotten or forgiven me in my attempt to convince them to restrain their uses of the sacred fire, whereby they might be empowered not only to command the energies for the conveniences of life but, of course, to enter into a path that would bring them ultimate reunion with God.

Thus, they have denied that reunion and used what powers remain with them of that ancient time as a shadow of a former self to sustain a civilization of materialism and to ensconce themselves [in positions of power], protected now not by the sacred fire or their adeptship but by money itself. Thus, money has become their god and they have used that money as power to control peoples and nations and economies and banking houses. Understand, beloved, just how great can be the resentment of a people [toward their God].

Now, therefore, I come to you to ask your assistance. For I desire, of course, once again to woo the reincarnated Suernis to a path of Love, to an inner awakening; for many of them, though they yet carry their anger, suffer from depression.

 It is a deep depression, for they know at unconscious levels of being that in my person and in the persons of other Sons of the Solitude they have lost the truest friend they ever had. They know that they do not have that tie to the living Christ and yet they do not desire to surrender their substance, <5> to bend the knee, to confess that they have espoused the golden-calf consciousness and civilization, and to leave all this behind them for the love of the mighty one of God, the Lord Christ.

Thus, it is an hour when you see a karma repeated again and again. The cycles of opportunity [to overcome the] repetition of this karma are coming to a close for the Suernis. When I speak of the Suernis, I am not speaking of the one million souls who yet have the option to take that ascension but of the rebellious ones who embodied through them as the Suernis who rebelled against me.

Thus, understand that that rebellious generation must know that their time is short, ultimately, to receive their God. They shall not have to deal with me, for God has withdrawn me from their scene. I, having done all I could do, see that I am but a stone of stumbling in their path.

Thus, it has been given to them to know other [Sons of the Solitude] even today. May you pray for [the reincarnated Suernis] as you have been taught, for the powerful calls you give <6> are the only means whereby they may be set free from a dweller-on-the-threshold that, person by person to the last man and woman, is a giant of gargantuan stature that they are ill-equipped to deal with. In fact, most have embodied that [not-self] as their personhood instead of embodying the Holy Christ Self.

Adeptship today, then, is by free will. Alas, the Path is not prominent in the West. Many have never heard of such a path or, if they have, fear it as something that they would call occult. As you know, occult simply means “hidden,” that which is the hidden wisdom that is unveiled to the initiate.

But there is a path, beloved, and it is under the Ascended Masters. And since my ascension I have been able to work with many who have lovingly received my ministration and who have desired the techniques of full God-mastery for one reason and one alone:  the purest love of God and the desire to help his own. Thus, I have graduated to the place of being able to work with those who are certainly suffused with the love of Christ and therefore can make rapid and light strides on this path of progress.

May you know, then, that individual by individual, as you have been told, the Path is most personal and many of you are reaching the place where you may have a very personal transfer from us through the Messenger. May you understand that it is according as <9>you fulfill the Law.

No more will be spoken to you of the matter. You will prepare yourself inwardly and make yourself ready, bearing in mind that often karma alone stands between you and a more accelerated path of initiation. Thus, the violet flame must never be set aside for some other occupation. It is your key to the kingdom of God.

I, too, am grateful that the story of my involvement in the land of Suern has been recorded in the book by Phylos the Tibetan, for with the understanding [of my experience] many will see that to force the issue of the path of spirituality [or celibacy, using the sacred fire only for procreation], is not wise. This includes not forcing [the spiritual path] upon children but rather acquainting them with their options and allowing them to choose when [or if] they desire to make a more than ordinary commitment to the Path.

Thus, beloved, the greatest teacher is the best example.

I sought to be that example in that land of Suern and [the record shows that I did succeed].

[Nevertheless], the example unto those who want none of it is never sufficient; but the record that is left in akasha of your example will always be there. And you will rejoice to see from inner levels and other octaves as you move on in your journey to the Sun how souls will come along and suddenly find themselves locked in [the replica of] your Electronic Presence that you have left along the byways of life. Locking in to the record of your being, they will suddenly rejoice in gladness and know that the day has come for their intimate and personal association with an unascended or Ascended Master who will take them all the way to the point of their God-realization.

Thus in this life you have been reconnected [to your I AM Presence] by the grace of someone. The outer contact is one thing but the dispensation for that contact comes from the ascended realms and the levels of the Archangels. Therefore give gratitude where gratitude is due–to God for the dispensation you have been given for the opportunity of receiving this teaching.

Each day many across the world encounter one of the books or Pearls of Wisdom or someone who knows the Path, and they feel as though their life has [just] begun and their search has ended. And thus, they move with a holy zeal to recapture the lost years and to enter in to the closest communion with our bands that they can accomplish in this life.

Knowing, then, how precious is the gift and how much you have valued the teaching, realize that you were given a long time of being apart from that path and teaching so that you could long for it and yearn for it and desire it, so that you could see the futility of all other paths–[all of this so] that when you came in contact with this path there would be no turning back and no compromise.

Yet still there are those who when they discover the rigors of self-discipline and the sacrifices that are simply part of the Path, and the surrender and the need for service, et cetera, do turn back and say, “It is too hard.”

I counsel you that when as parents or teachers you make life too easy for children and their studies too easy and [you] do not give them hurdles [so that they might] develop levels of excellence and a sense of accomplishment in the mastery of self, you fail to prepare them for the reality of the rigors of the true path of Life.

Children love a good struggle and a hearty accomplishment. Give them the freedom, then, to have this experience and they will easily walk in the footprints of Jesus or a Saint Francis or one of the many saints and they will move on. When they exercise and build their lungs and their bodies and develop strength in sports as well as in hard work, they will not consider the Path arduous but simply the next challenge to be encountered.

So, my beloved, I have come to speak with you this evening that you might know my heart and know the gentleness of my love that forever loves you and only desires, if you will have me, to assist you in your personal adeptship even as I would have [assisted the Suernis] centuries ago but was refused en masse by the people.

I am certain you understand the sorrow I had then. I wish to make certain that you understand the joy I have today, for there are so many grateful students. I am glad to participate in the doings of the Darjeeling Council and with the Brothers and Sisters of the Golden Robe under Koot Hoomi. I am grateful to be counted among those who may assist the willing.

Praise God that you are the willing hearts!  In that willingness, I bid you to your full God-mastery in this life. May you enjoy a period of adeptship and may you see how much you can give to people once you have been willing to discipline your soul [and your energies] to that end.

Therefore I bow to the Light of God shining upon the altar of your being. May it increase!  May it increase. And may your love of the Divine Mother be the key to the mastery of the four quadrants of her Matter universe.

In the bliss of the Spirit cosmos, I take my leave of you. But I am on call as is every Ascended Master; and by law, the law of Love, your love and my love, I must respond. I can do naught else.

This dictation by the Ascended Master Ernon, Rai of Suern, was delivered by the Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood Elizabeth Clare Prophet on Sunday, October 13, 1991, during the four-day Class of the Golden Cycle held at the New Orleans Airport Hilton. The dictation and the Messenger’s “Profile of Ernon, Rai of Suern” (published as last week’s Pearl of Wisdom) are available on 90-min. audiocassette, B91129. [N.B. Throughout this Pearl, bracketed material denotes words unspoken yet implicit in the dictation, added by the Messenger under the Ascended Master Ernon’s direction for clarity in the written word.]

1. Lost sheep of the house of Israel. When Jesus left his golden-age civilization on Atlantis 34,500 years ago, two million souls followed him. They went to Suern, present-day India. One million of these souls ascended from Suern. The other million continued to reincarnate, some among the Suernis and some on Atlantis in the realm of the Poseid. Thirteen thousand years ago, the Suernis rebelled against their ruler, Rai Ernon. Those of the one million who were incarnated in Suern did not rebel. However, they too were subject to the doom the Rai pronounced upon the Suernis:  to dwindle and wait for ninety centuries and suffer until the time of Moses. He told the Suernis that at that time they would be called “the seed of Abraham,” the twelve tribes of Israel. (See Pearl no. 60.)  The one million who had been with Jesus on Atlantis reincarnated in the tribe of Joseph through his sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, whom Jacob blessed as his own. The tribe of Joseph was one of the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Today, these one million are reincarnated principally among the peoples of the British Isles, the United States and Canada. The Suernis reincarnated in the remaining nine of the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel and in the two tribes of the Southern Kingdom of Judah. Today, those nine tribes of the Northern Kingdom are generally reincarnated among the European nations as Christians, whereas the two tribes of the Southern Kingdom (Judah and Benjamin) and some Levites are generally reincarnated among the modern-day Jews. For reasons of karma, the seed of Abraham have also reincarnated in every nation.

2. Matt. 15:24.

3. Saints robed in white. Rev. 3:4, 5; 4:4; 6:9-11; 7:9, 13, 14; 15:6; 19:14.

4. Jer. 31:33; Heb. 8:10; 10:16.

5. The Ascended Master El Morya teaches his chelas that oral sex is a perversion of the sacred fire and that those who so misuse it are squandering the Light necessary to weave the Deathless Solar Body. Hence, they cannot make their ascension following an embodiment of such practice. However, if they cease the practice when they receive this teaching, they may be able to conserve the life-force and still attain union with God in the ritual of the ascension at the conclusion of this embodiment.

6. Jesus Christ dictated the decree “I Cast Out the Dweller-on-the-Threshold!” for the express purpose of providing the faithful with the means to overcome the not-self of their own creating. The dweller-on-the-threshold must be bound before the Christ can descend into the body temple. This is the meaning of the Second Coming. See decree 20.09 in Prayers, Meditations and Dynamic Decrees for the Coming Revolution in Higher Consciousness, Section III.

7. the book of the records of their comings and goings and their karma

8. their misqualified energy and their misuses of the sacred fire

9. according as (16th-century usage):  in accord with the way in which; depending on how; depending on whether.
