|Revelation Chapter 15
NY Study Group
|1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great
and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them
is filled up the wrath of God.
2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

1. John perceives now within the soul of Man, or that known as the collective unconscious, the soul of individual men are purified and tested on seven levels of consciousness (as he has already found in his own experience).
2. The 144,000 perfect souls by reason of their own integrated state of emotional and spiritual natures, remain stable in the face of any eventuality because they bear within themselves the stamp of Law - that is to say, Divine Law, or purpose.
5. John perceives that all men encounter the condition sooner or later, where the experience of the four lower centers, the mentality of same that is, come against the perfect patterns for those centers.
(N.B. This might be described as the activation of conscience - since the discrepancies between the perfect pattern and the actual experiences are now shown up in bold relief.)
8. The final steps of the individual for perfect service take place within the mind as well as all guilt feelings, which result from these seven-fold tests, arise to cloud the mind for this period. When all seven levels have been purified, then and only then can a man achieve mastery of himself.
