The Messianic Consciousness in Jewish Prophecy (CIII) Isaiah
“For Zion's sake I am not silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I do not rest until her righteousness goes out as brightness, and her redemption as a torch that burns.” (Isaiah 62:1)
God's promise to transform human consciousness is unavoidable. Let's remind ourselves that Jerusalem is the awareness of our permanent connection with God. We also realize that we achieve this awareness by enthroning the righteousness of Love as the only ruler and conductor of all aspects and dimensions of consciousness. Love's righteousness is the Light that shines our Redemption as the eternal fire of God's Love.
No matter how low we fall under the negative predicament of ego's fantasies and illusions, we never lose sight of Love as the way and means to return to the lost goodness we yearn for as our freedom and Redemption. God's only condition for us to return to His ways is embracing righteousness, for it is also part of our common bond with His Love.
“And nations have seen your righteousness, and all kings your honor. And He is giving to you a new name that the mouth of the Lord names. And you have been a crown of splendor in the hand of the Lord, and a diadem of royalty in the hand of your God.” (62:2-3)
Love is the example, the instruction and the teacher. Thus both the positive and negative traits and tendencies in our consciousness must follow the righteousness of Love's ways and attributes. In this verse we see that the nations which represent the negative aspects of consciousness are destined to learn from our righteousness as a fundamental part of the positive aspects represented by Israel.
As we have indicated often, “kings” represent ruling principles, values and beliefs that also will honor the righteousness by which Love's ways and attributes will lead all dimensions of life.
God again reiterates that Jerusalem will have a new name. This means that the current way we bond and relate with God will be different, taking into consideration that our “new” consciousness (the Messianic consciousness) will manifest without anything contrary to Love's ways and attributes.
God's Love will relate to our Love in ways we can't fathom with our current dual and fractured consciousness. This new name will be our new material and spiritual identity God elevates to the royal splendor only His hand (His Love) can give.
“It is not said of you anymore, 'Forsaken!' And of your land it is not said any more, 'Desolate'. For to you is cried, 'My delight is in her', and to your land, 'Married'. For the Lord has delighted in you, and your land is married. For [as] a young man marries a virgin, your builders do marry you. As the joy of a bridegroom over a bride, do rejoice over your God.” (62:4-5)
Under the regency of Love our consciousness is never forsaken, for Love is our belonging as our essence and true identity that comes from God's Love. Our land is our material life that is never desolate or destroyed under the regency of Love's ways and attributes.
Our joy and happiness are in the delight of living our connection with God. Hence Jerusalem is our delight when we realize our eternal bond with God's Love with which we are married. God's Love and our Love will dwell in marriage forever. It will be the happiest marriage of all, for we are married to the greatest Love of all.
From the Book's Foreword
Let's reexamine our ancestral memory, intellect, feelings, emotions and passions. Let's wake them up to our true Essence. Let us engage in the delightful awareness of Love as the Essence of G-d. The way this book is written is to reaffirm and reiterate its purpose, so it presents its message and content in a recurrent way. This is exactly its purpose, to restate the same Truth originally proclaimed by our Holy Scriptures, Prophets and Sages. Our purpose is to firmly enthrone G-d's Love in all dimensions of our consciousness, and by doing it we will fulfill His Promise that He may dwell with us on Earth forever. Let's discover together the hidden message of our ancient Scriptures and Sages. In that journey, let's realize Love as our Divine Essence, what we call in this book the revealed Light of Redemption in the Messianic era.
