My Father the Lord Jesus Christ did not come to die even though it was predestined; that happened because of the failure of John the Baptist in admitting he was Elijah and the subsequent betrayal of Judas as the son of perdition; as has been known by the initiates of the Grail; and recently by the members of the Unification Church.
It was in his otherwise brilliant uncovering the circumstances of the fact that Jesus did not come destined to die that Rev. Moon found something unknown to mainstream christianity, although Rev. Moon ignored what was written of the “Messiah the Prince” being “cut off” as therefore predestined in Daniel; here Rev. Moon “solved” this problem in his book “Divine Principle” by saying Isaiah wrote a dual prophecy concerning the Lamb: when he did no such thing.
This one mistake in his judging of John the Baptist as guilty of failure as then being the principal cause of the Crucifixion of Jesus: he forgot that in Daniel when it asserts that “The Messiah the Prince” was predestined to die as cut off after 70 weeks: which did happen, as Isaiah wrote not a flawed and dual prophecy as Rev. Moon asserted; rather it recognized how Jesus would be abandoned by his own messenger; and then betrayed by a friend; which means that Jesus could have had a different ending on earth had he not become the “Man of Sorrows”: but it wasn’t destined to happen; due to some very big failures by some big players who indulged in acts quite unprincipled, as very irresponsible parties.
John never proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah. He mentioned it to his two top disciples, John and Andrew, the brother of Peter. The fact John wrote it down later is the only proof we have that John even designated Jesus as “the Lamb”, and the Bridegroom.
But he never brought Jesus his Bride; the Nation itself.
This is the pain that Isaiah describes: as one losing his own child; God’s own Grief. The prophet Isaiah writes of the coming betrayal and treachery; and contains no “dual prophecies”; as the Sripture is a Chain that cannot be broken, and Daniel sees the Messiah after the fact; after his advent and Death. But Daniel and Isaiah were contemporaries; they knew each other…..
Thus what we have in Daniel is the telling of a story after it was over: and with Isaiah the same telling written during the story: and no one escapes their fate when it comes to the death of the Lamb.
Yet Rev. Moon rightly discerned that the death of Jesus was not destined; for then John’s denial of himself as Elijah would have been right; not wrong; and Judas’s betrayal of the Lord would have been good; rather then evil. This was obviously not the case; for Rev. Moon is quite right that we all have to fulfill our own portion of responsibility; just like the angels do; for with God after Moses there is no difference between man or angel on the Path.
Let us look at the actual positions everyone was actually in at the Last Judgement; for those who have died in Christ know that time ended at Golgotha; since then we have been living in the Lord’s pure divine grace; to have time to repent; or none would be saved: and I mean the whole human race; for God wants to save us all: of course. It was thus Jesus as “The Bridegroom” who was in the position of Issac; and John as the elder brother was in the position of Ishmael; for John to bring the “Bride” to Jesus was thus the “restoring of all things” that John was supposed to do; for as Eliezar of Damascus was the one who went and got the Bride for Issac now it was to be done by John in the position of Ishmael; thus making the two brothers close as Issac and Ishmael had been distant.
In this restoration John was called “The Friend of the Bridegroom.” More than this it was the Elders of Judah who were in the position of Abraham as “The Father of the Bridegroom” as having the power of life and death over Jesus when he came to Jerusalem; for Mt. Zion is also Mt. Moriah; where Abraham offered Issac on the Altar; thus for Jesus to come to Jerusalem meant he was putting his life in the hands of those who ruled Israel.
If they had listened to John and spared Jesus just as Abraham had spared Issac when he heard the Voice of the Angel then the Elders of Judah would have passed the Test of God which came at His Visitation when His Son came in the Golden Gate on Palm Sunday: but the Elders failed this test; deciding to kill the Heir and take the land for themselves; and thus they were in the position of a Abraham who killed Issac by not listening to the Angel.
Their Salvation would then have been for them to have discerned the Day and the Hour as they had but listened to John as if he were Elijah: the Messenger of the Altar.
The Baptism unto Death for Jesus as the Resurrection unto Life for David
Thus they would have been deemed righteous like Abraham to have listened to an Angel; which is what “messenger” means: “angelos”; a “messenger” from God.
In having to make these things known we have an even darker dimension to these things as well; for between the Destiny of Jesus and his Fate we have the real “beam” that was in John’s eye that stopped him from bonding with Jesus; for in reality John’s identity was that of Jonathan for whom he was named; which none have known; even as Jesus was David when he emerged from the Jordan: to face the Death at Golgotha written of at Psalm 22: the final piece of the puzzle: the Second Death of David.
That Sun Myung Moon failed in his mission has to do with that one covered secret and mystery that is the hidden unconscious accusation John the Baptist had which caused him to misjudge the situation in some very telling ways.
It is this same exact error Rev. Moon himself consciously now believes; and which is why he never reached the Seal of Elijah; just like John never did: which is why he did not one miracle; and the Lamb and his followers did many.
It is this tragic error which Rev. Moon adopted; so in judging John it was Moon who judged himself; for John secretly and unconsciously believed that Mary had lain with his father Zacharias to produce Jesus; which is a lie; but Sun Myung Moon actually believes it is the “truth” which is why he never got to the Seal of the Living God; just as John the Baptist failed to reach it: which is why he could do no miracles; as he had the Spirit but not the Power of Elijah; which Lord Jesus reminded him of when John sent two of his discples to Lord Jesus from jail to ask him if he was really “the one”.
For this Jesus Christ severely rebuked John through them; though few know this. Here he mentioned the miracles: reminding John he was out of position drastically; but John ended up losing his head long before it was removed from his shoulders; a sign that the Predestined Death of Jesus in no way absolved those who abandoned him and then betrayed him at all.
The failure of John the Baptist was seen beforehand by Daniel; but it was really given a heartbreaking forecast by Isaiah in his book; but if you read carefully you can see that Isaiah talks of a “New Heaven and a New Earth” precisely where the possibility of Jesus coming and being killed would cause.
That he would come again. Thus we have the time of the End for us as it was for Him; for when Jesus died God died too: as you would if you lost your son; inside. That is the God who speaks His Curse in the Qur’an; with no partner; and no Son. That one died on Golgotha for us. Yet this is seen now; where what happened on Golgotha now happens to us: which is what the Last Judgement is all about; although no one wants to hear it; as then we are all like Job; who reached the Last Judgement first: the Witness of the Last Day; for what Job went through we all must now face: and only they with the Patience of Job and the Faith of Jesus will make it.
In the Grail the maidens who appear with John’s head on the charger of platter show that as denying he was Elijah John lost his head to his old enemy: Jezebel; present in the form of Herodias; who was in no such denial; just as Jesus had said Elijah was present in the person of John.
In going up against Herodias and Herod John was in actuality going up against his old enemies Jezebel and Ahab; but he was sundered from his friend and Saviour; and so died. The tears of the maidens of the Grail are from the knowledge John lost his head in his blindness long before it was lifted from his shoulders.
The Grail is Perfection
“The Son of Man cometh in an hour when ye think not”
Let us look at the truth of what the angel of the Grail tells us; for John the Baptist was named for Jonathan: as Jesus at his Baptism was David at his Resurrection: but John knew it not; as has no one but the initiates of the Grail and the Elect knew until now; the followers of Rev. Moon included.
“The Flower Child of the Children of the Resurrection”
In my book I reveal the Baptism of Jesus was the Resurrection of David; just as the Resurrection of Jesus was the Regeneration of David; which is why Mary of Magdala did not even recognize Jesus: she thought he was the gardener. But his true face was seen on Mt. Sion, by John, Peter and James: but my Father made them vow not to reveal his true face they saw until after he arose from his death on the Cross. Mount Sion is Baal Hermon, known as “Mount Hermon” where the angels descended to earth at their fall.
The Face of David
That the face of Jesus was deformed has been unknown as well; this is why he said; to wit;
