THE DAY HUMANITY EMBARKS ON ITS SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

FROM ESAU TO JACOB

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

 From a metaphysical point of view, the biblical story of Esau and Jacob reveals the path of our Soul’s spiritual journey to Ascension.  This story, with its unique details, seems especially relevant the day after America’s 2012 Presidential Elections.

Jacob's Ladder

 Jacob’s Ladder, by William Blake

 According to Charles Fillmore, the Hebrew word for Esau means hairy, rough.  Metaphysically, it means the physical bodyEsau represents the immature consciousness that characterizes life on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality.[i]  In the biblical story, Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of pottage.[ii]  Like Esau, we have tended to place satisfaction of our physical passions, appetites, and opinions above seeking to comprehend the Higher, Universal Laws.

A birthright, in the Ancient Near East, gave the eldest son a greater inheritance than the younger sons.[iii]  In selling his birthright, which entitled Esau to a larger inheritance than Jacob, Esau gave up a much more lasting benefit simply to immediately satisfy his physical appetite.  This need for immediate gratification, to have it our way, is a major characteristic of life on the 3rd dimension.  It leads us into foolish actions that boomerang in our face.

Charles Fillmore gives the meaning of the Hebrew word for Jacob as supplanter, leaving behind, bringing to an end, rewarding.  Metaphysically, it means mentality or understanding.  Jacob represents our I AM identity—the fact that as we seek understanding from our I AM PRESENCE (God indwelling us) through our Higher, Intuitive Mind, we know Truth.[iv]  This knowledge of Truth regarding the Universal Laws is to supplant the physical plane laws and our attempts to gratify physical desires.

Thus, Jacob signifies the Soul’s progression from 3rd dimension to 5th dimensional consciousness and living.  Jacob reminds us of the journey we are making during the last months of 2012—the journey to Ascension.

 The Hebrew word for Zion means sunshine, landmark.  Metaphysically, Zion means Love’s Abode within our conscious awareness.  Zion is often associated with Jerusalem.  “In referring to the Holy City—the New Jerusalem—Zion symbolizes spiritual consciousness.” [v]

Mountain symbolizes the higher consciousness attained through meditation as we journey toward full consciousness.  While on the mountaintop (in meditation), we can communicate with higher beings—Earth’s Ascended Masters, our Galactic family, and the Angelic Hosts.  While focused in this higher level of consciousness, we perceive life as it truly is, apart from the illusionary world in which we live on the 3rd dimension.

Now that we know the hidden wisdom within the above names and places, we can better understand Isaiah’s prophecy in Isaiah 2:2-5.  He speaks of the Soul’s journey from Esau to Jacob.  This is the journey on which Earth humans are embarking on this momentous day of November 7, 2012.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established above the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall look to it.  And many people shall go and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths:  for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.  And he shall judge among the nations, and rebuke many peoples who are far off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into sickles:  nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.  O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.’”

Metaphysical Interpretation:  And it shall come to pass in the last days, that a higher level of consciousness shall be established, i.e. Earth will ascend to a 5th dimensional consciousness of Love & Light.  All nations shall look to it.  All of Earth’s inhabitants are invited to ascend with her.  And many people shall go and say, ‘Come, let us go to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob;  let us meditate and seek the Truth of higher consciousness.  Let us leave behind the urges to satisfy the passions and physical desires of the 3rd dimension and supplant them with knowledge of the Universal Laws.  The God of Jacob, I AM[vi]—our indwelling God, will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion, Love’s Abode, shall go forth the Law created in Love and expressing Love.  Knowledge of Universal Law will come forth through our spiritual consciousness.

And I AM shall judge among the nations, and rebuke many peoples who are far off. 

 Knowledge of Universal Law is essential here; otherwise we read this passage to mean God judges and rebukes those who do not seek higher consciousness.  A God of Unconditional, Absolute Love knows only Love, sees only with the eyes of Love, never judges or rebukes us.  Instead, the Universal Law stating “We reap what we sow” is always in effect.  It is this objective Law that judges us by allowing us to harvest whatever we have sown.  When we have sown negative energy, we experience some form of negative response—we are rebuked.  God has absolutely nothing to do with the response … we have simply reaped what we sowed.  If nations and people live far from a higher consciousness and knowledge of Universal Law, then we experience the Law as a rebuke.

As Earth humans gain higher consciousness and knowledge of Universal Law, they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into sickles: nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

 On November 6, 2012, President Obama was re-elected as President of the United States.  According to our off-world sources, Obama is to lead us into the Golden Age.  To do so is his role within the Divine Plan for Earth.

Our role in the Divine Plan is to answer the call:  O house of Jacob … O those of you who choose to ascend and assist in creating the New Earth … come, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.  Come, and let us walk—together—in the light of the Universal Law.[vii]

Our role is to drop our 3rd dimensional ways … lift our consciousness above the political party bickering and stonewalling … come together as One Nation … and work cooperatively in creating a galactic society of Love & Light & Abundance for All People.  We are now in the last few weeks of preparation for Ascension … we have no time for fighting among ourselves.  It is time for us to beat our swords into plowshares, and our spears into sickles: nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

It is time for all of us to climb the mountain to a higher consciousness … to learn the ways of Universal Law—the Oneness of All of Creation.

WE ARE ONE FAMILY OF GOD!  MAY WE STAND BEHIND PRESIDENT OBAMA AND ASSIST AS HE LEADS US IN CREATING A SOCIETY THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE!
