DEATH IS THE DOOR TO LIFE
by Roger Hathaway, September 23, 2011
Death is that terror which we fear most, which we resist to the last moment, and which loved ones grieve about more than any other event. We oppose Death with every means possible, while we pursue life and its pleasures. We try to live full-out, just as though Death doesn't exist.
Now, I want to suggest that we've got it all wrong. Jesus proclaimed that Death is the exit door from this World nightmare; He calls us to follow Him through it to the glorious kingdom which awaits us. It is Jesus' adversary who reigns as lord of this World, and who seduces us to love it, and who teaches us to fear Death. Somehow, each of us must confront that lie and recognize Jesus' Way as the proper path for God's Anointed Offspring. But, what I am saying is nearly impossible for us who have always claimed for ourselves Satan's rewards for believing his lie. Fear of Death is a deep core-belief in our souls, not something easily overcome even though our Lord calls us to do so.
Here, I want to discuss the Death issue, perhaps to help us think about it and understand how it is the very Theme of God's plan for us. If we consider the long term plan of God, we find that each full cycle lasts 24,000 years, of which the negative half-cycle is World and the positive half-cycle is Heaven. We don't know how many hundreds or thousands of cycles have preceded this one, but we do know that all the cycles together make up a Word of God. During the World half-cycle, God's Offspring have descended into a pit of deception, violence, murder, lusts, and wickedness. We chose to rebel against our Father, and World is the result. As we review the 12,000 years of World, it seems there is a pattern of births and deaths which are meaningful to each of its six ages. At the beginning of each age, such as Aries or Pisces, an Anointed Son is born and an Anointed Son dies. Godís Family is repeatedly renewed just like a plant whose seed propagates it, ever being renewed eternally. This process is not only taught by natureís plant kingdom, but applies also to Godís Offspring Family. We can see this plan demonstrated by reviewing the Biblical characters during these ages of World, a 12,000 year half-cycle which is now coming to its end.
LEO/Lion/Physical (10,000BC - 8,000BC)
Letís begin with the zodiac age of LEO, 12,000 years ago, the first age of World. Print out a copy of the sine wave diagram of history. It was at the end of VIRGO, the last age of Heaven, that an Anointed Son of the Almighty Father was killed and entombed in the Great Pyramid in Egypt (Egypt always symbolizes World). World is a 12,000 year kingdom which is finite in time, form, and life; there is no immortality in World. It was from the preceding kingdom of Heaven that Godís Anointed Family (Adam) had chosen to descend into a World of mortality and death, along with its opportunities for sensual excitements and thrilling risks, a World kingdom where Death reigns over all life forms, a kingdom where lives are being terminated and eternally renewed. Godís Family experiences six zodiac ages of 2,000 years each during World, before its return to the Spiritual kingdom of Heaven where Life will rule instead of Death.
So, it was at that time of transition from VIRGO to LEO when an immortal Anointed Son of the Father, a IESUS, was killed and entombed in Egypt/World, like a seed is planted, later to blossom as a new life, again and again. Notice on the sine wave diagram that the Family descended from the sky into the pit, like a seed which gets planted. From VIRGO came a Son to experience World as an extension of the Father. The prophet Isaiah (7:14) states: "A virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and you shall call His name Emmanuel." Let's rephrase that: "From Virgo a Family shall be born whose name will be God-with-us." That Anointed One, who would rise (be born) from that pyramid tomb/womb, would then, as the body of Christ/Anointed, represent the Father as "God with us" during the following two quarter cycles of World: first the Lion/Physical experience Quarter of three ages of LEO, CANCER, GEMINI, and secondly the Bull/Emotional experience Quarter of TAURUS, ARIES, and PISCES, for a half-cycle total of 12,000 years.
The Son of the Father is One with the Father, experiencing life as an Offspring Family/Race of Men who live and function as extensions of the Father. The Son/Family is Anointed by the Father with His Spirit, for a special purpose. Anointing is like appointing, or an Assignment to a special destiny. The Spiritual Anointing of His Offspring means that His own Spirit dwells within, empowers, and guides the Son for a special purpose or Destiny. The word, "Anointed" is the Greek word, "Christos." Godís Anointed Family is His only begotten Son; a Christ who must be killed many times during World for the purpose of leaving World flesh and limitation behind, in order to return to the kingdom of Heaven.
According to the diagram of ages, which are explained in the commentary on the book of Revelation, regarding first and second deaths and resurrections, I speculate that the resurrection of that Anointed One who was entombed in the pyramid (World) happened after one Church Age of about 1,700 years. That would have brought the entombed Anointed One (hereafter called a Christ) back onto the stage at about 8,300BC, near the end of the age of LEO.
CANCER/Crab/Physical (8,000BC - 6,000BC)
We donít have any historical record of the killing of a Son at the beginning of the age of CANCER, but I would assume there was such an event at that time about 10,000 years ago, simply because the paradigm is consistent during the ages for which we do have historical records.
GEMINI/Twins/Physical (6,000BC - 4,000BC)
Near the beginning of the age of Gemini (Twins), at 7,508BC (according to LXX dating), we have the Bible story of the appearance of Adam and Eve. It was the twins of Eve (Greek: Zoe) who would initiate this age of Gemini. Abel was born as a Christ Son of Adam to represent God. Cain was born as a son of Satan, who would kill Abel, thus keynoting the theme of Godís Pageant for our Biblical historical record. Since World is a kingdom of limited life, Death is inevitable for everyone. God demonstrates this fact by effecting the death of His own Son/Offspring by the murderous hand of an enemy race (of Cain) which was created for that very purpose. Cain killed his innocent and Godly brother, Abel. So, the creation story in Genesis presents the recurrent theme for each of the coming ages. An Anointed Son is born. An Anointed Son (not always the same one) is killed by the adversary race of Cain.
The ancient religion of Paganism, instituted by Cain himself, was a commemoration of that event, in which the motherís name was Semiramus, and the son was Tammuz. It was a religion of lamentation for the dead son, but neither that Son nor his Father were worshiped. Rather, it was the father of Cain, the killer, whose name was Bel (Baal/Satan) who was worshiped and to whom temples were built. That religion is still widely practiced today, except that some of the character names are different. The innocent Son is Jesus; the mother is Mary; and the killerís father is Yahweh. It was the Cain race of Edomites who revised the early Christian religion into their ancient Paganism, after which they, as Roman Catholics, proceeded to kill countless millions of innocent sons of the true Almighty Father. But, that is a story for an age much more recent than this age of Gemini in which the paradigm of two enemy-races of brothers is introduced to us.
TAURUS/Bull/Emotional (4,000BC - 2,000BC)
At the very nadir of a cycle, God halts the downward path of His Offspring with a great flood, saving but one Christ Family which had not bred with other races. The Christ figure, Noah, was born about 3866BC. The greater Adamic Family of God had yielded to the temptation of breeding with non-Adamic races thereby adulterating the pure bloodline which God values apriori. This time it is not a single Christ figure who gets killed, but nearly the entire Adamic Race, except for the Noah family, whom God spares as His seed for future generations. Of Noah's three sons, Sem is Anointed to seed God's Family for a journey which has a new course, upward rather than decline. The nadir is past and the instinct of the prodigal is to leave the pig-pen World and climb once again toward his Father at the Apex Throne. He will have to be killed and renewed many times on this Path.
ARIES/Lamb/Emotional (2,000BC - Anno Domine)
Abraam was the Christ figure who would inaugurate the age of Aries with a new religion which venerated the killing of a Lamb on a sacrificial altar. It would be a religion of Death, exalting the process by which God's Family would eventually find Liberation from the World kingdom. Abraam was directed to kill his own Anointed Son, but was spared that sacrifice when God substituted a Ram in order to symbolize the Death. The paradigm of Death was not altered, rather it was emphasized that the Father would supply, at the end of this Lamb age, a Christ/Son who would be killed.
PISCES/Fish/Emotional (Anno Domine - 2,000AD)
Jesus was the Christ Lamb who completed the Aries age, and who would inaugurate the age of Pisces with a new religion in order to regather/catch the Fish, killing them and tying them with God's Cord (alpha Piscium/Al Rischa). During Pisces, God has reclaimed His Anointed Family/Son. This event is also described as Jesus gathering His flock, and as the Prodigal returning home to be welcomed by his Father. Jesus was the Anointed Son, Christ, who was killed by the enemy Cain race, aka Jews, but He was only the first Fish to be reclaimed. During the entire age of Pisces, many millions of God's Family would be killed by the Jews who directed the Roman Catholic inquisitions and all of the wars, including the Stalinist genocidal pogrom which killed more than fifty million European Christians.
Now, at the end of the age of Pisces, the Jewish administration, behind their proxy president, is preparing to massacre most of white race America along with four-fifths of the entire planet. It is our Anointed white race which God will permit to be killed in order to Liberate His Family from Satan's World nightmare. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, therefore we must willingly sacrifice our lives, as Jesus calls us to do and as so many millions of martyrs have already done. Those individuals who yearn for such martyrdom will find the welcoming arms of their Father. For those Family members who prefer to save their flesh lives, they will find themselves channeled off to that place which the prophet Ezra calls "Torments," until the time of second-resurrection when they will get another chance. That second resurrection will be at the end of the church age of Ephesus, about 1,700 years after World is ended.
AQUARIUS/Water Carrier/Spiritual (2,000AD - 4,000AD)
The age of AQUARIUS is the first age of the kingdom of Heaven, an age of Spiritual priority rather than Physical or Emotional which dominated the World ages. I speculate that the new paradigm will be Life rather than death. The Anointed Offspring, the Elect of the Father will no longer experience death but will be immortal. Although I have tried to imagine what our lives will be like in the new ages of Heaven, I cannot. It is an unknown reward for which I must be willing, even eager, for my Liberators to kill this flesh body and release me from their nightmare. Jesus showed us the Way and calls us to follow. He tells us that any who would save their flesh lives will lose them anyway, but those who offer their lives as living sacrifices will find Life eternal.
So, to make a practical application of this lesson from God's Word, I ask you: will you war against your Liberators or will you act intentionally to get yourself Liberated? You are going to die, either way, but one path leads to Life eternal and the other leads to a holding cell in Torments. Does this question seem difficult to you? In order to help you think about the question, I will paste below an excerpt from the top of my HomePageIndex.
Jesus said, "If anyone desires to follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life on account of Me will find it. For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?" (Matthew 16:24)
Jesus said, "He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for life eternal. Anyone who serves Me must follow Me, and where I am, there will My servant be." (John 12:25)
Jesus said, "Go sell your possessions and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven, and come, follow Me." (Matthew 19:21)
Jesus said, take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor purse nor bread nor money." (Luke 9:3)
Jesus said, "Verily, I say unto you, none will be saved unless they believe in my cross. But those who have believed in my cross, their is the kingdom of God. Therefore, become seekers for death, like the dead who seek for life; for that which they seek is revealed to them. And what is there to trouble them? As for you, when you examine death, it will teach you election. Verily, I say unto you, none of those who fear death will be saved; for the kingdom of God belongs to those who put themselves to death. Become better than I; make yourselves like the son of the Holy Spirit." (from the Nag Hammadi Gospel: Apocryphon of James, Jesus' brother)
Jesus' brother, James, also said, "Do you know that friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world has made himself an enemy of God." (James 4:4)
St. Paul understood Jesus' words, as he wrote to those at Corinth, "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor will corruption inherit incorruption." (I Cor 15:50)

Below is the email which I sent to friends, introducing the above article;
As you know, for many years I have been writing about the end-times, considering the prophecies, and attempting to figure how the events will play out. My concern is not unique, for the internet is awash with others who are doing the same.
As a Christian, I believe that Godís Elect will make the transition from this World kingdom to the new Heaven kingdom differently from other people. As Spirit Being Offspring of God, they will be transfigured to a new type of physical/spiritual nature, like that of Jesus after His resurrection. Letís think of ourselves as the "we" who shall rise from the dead, or be changed in a twinkling of an eye, in order to inherit the new kingdom and establish a new civilization which is based on Godly constructs rather than material lust.
Of course, we are all watching world events develop into that Armageddon sequence which the Bible predicts, and the terrible vision of George Washington which has America nearly totally destroyed before God intervenes to defeat the enemy masses. During the massive destruction of Europe and America, pointed mostly at white race Christians who are the true Israelite race of the Bible, most of us will be killed.
I feel a personal need to decide how I will face that death. Many of Godís Family own guns and want to fight the overwhelming enemy forces who will come against us. Perhaps I will also resist, but Iím not sure, yet. My primary motive is to stand boldly to represent my God and to claim Jesus as my Lord. I expect to be killed. I guess each person must decide how best to make his statement. Resisting the enemy will get one killed just as surely as yielding to them. The problem with resistance is oneís attitude, whether he is attempting to save his world life, or is making a Christian statement. Jesus said, "whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life on account of Me will find it." That pretty much answers the question for me: resistance is a lose - lose proposition. One will lose his life anyway, along with losing his hope for future Life.
After thinking about this matter for years, it finally dawned on me that Death is the very Theme of this World kingdom. Our fear of it has been taught to us as children; we have learned to love this world, and to believe that even a miserable life is better than death. I am now convinced that weíve been taught a lie. This world is well known as Satanís great deception, and our fear of death is part of that. Jesus says to fear not, and to follow Him through that exit door into Life eternal. But, our fear is pretty powerful, isnít it? Yet, I think of those millions of Christian martyrs who went singing to the stakes where they were burned to death! How did they do that? When they were refusing to deny Jesus as their Lord, they knew the consequences! Yet, they stood boldly before their killers! Some of them continued singing while the fires were burning their flesh. How could they do that? The records of their deaths make convincing evidence that something special happened, that God intervened at those last moments. Oh, how I envy such courage and faith. And how I long to join their parade when my moment comes.
