The Ascended Master Jesus Christ. The avatar of the Piscean age; the incarnation of the Word, the Universal Christ; the example of the Christ consciousness that was to have been outpictured by the children of God in the two-thousand-year dispensation of the Piscean age; one who realized the fullness of the Christ Self and was therefore called Jesus, the Christ. He came to reveal the individual Christ Self to all mankind and to show the works of the Father (the I AM Presence) that can be accomplished by his sons and daughters in and through the flame of the individual Christ Self.
The incarnation of the Word
Jesus of Nazareth was and is the living Christ because he was the fullness of the incarnation of the Word. In him the threefold flame of power, wisdom and love, the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, was God, a consuming sacred fire—three persons in one, a light to lighten all peoples.
In the average man and woman the threefold flame is one-sixteenth of an inch in height, reduced by the edict of the LORD God made at the time of Noah. Jesus Christ, the wayshower, teaches us how to expand the threefold flame within the secret chamber of the heart that we might follow his example and become the living incarnation of the Word. He shows us how to balance the energies of love, wisdom and power until we are enveloped by this threefold action of the sacred fire and we become the living witness of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
To become the flame of God is the goal of life. Jesus, the Saviour of mankind, is here today to teach us the way, to teach us that the I AM THAT I AM is the way, the truth and the life.
Jesus first came to the earth as a volunteer with Sanat Kumara, and he has had many embodiments on earth since that time.
Ruler of a golden age on Atlantis
► Main article: Golden age of Jesus Christ on Atlantis
In one of these, he reigned as emperor and high priest over a golden-age civilization on Atlantis that lasted two thousand years, from 34,550 B.C. until 32,550 B.C. This age was seventeen ages previous to our own, and it was under the sign of Cancer. Jesus was born in 33,050 B.C. and began his reign in 33,000 B.C. after the golden age had been in progress for over 1,500 years. His consort was his twin flame, whom we know as the ascended lady master Magda. They ruled because they were the highest representatives of God in embodiment in that civilization. All the people of this civilization knew and accepted God’s will. Jesus and Magda did not have to impose any rules on the people because they were all in attunement with their Divine Source.
However, after Jesus had reigned for 450 years, the seeds of corruption were sown by one called Xenos, who was chief counsellor to the emperor. Finally Xenos convinced the people to revolt against the government (personified in Jesus) because the government was supposedly not supporting them. Xenos took over as leader of the government. Jesus Christ, Magda and two million loyal subjects (20 percent of the people) went to the land that later was to become Suern—India including Arabia. Half of them made their ascension at that time; the other half have continued to evolve on earth until today.
Other embodiments on Atlantis
► Main article: Golden age of Jesus Christ on Atlantis
After that embodiment, Jesus materialized on Atlantis and elsewhere on the planet where and when he was needed if the people’s good karma and allegiance to the Godhead warranted his intercession. About 15,000 B.C., Jesus returned as the ruler, the Rai, of Atlantis. As described by Phylos the Tibetan in his book A Dweller on Two Planets, this great Rai appeared in the Temple of the capital, Caiphul, and caused to spring up there the Maxin, the Fire of Incal. This unfed flame burned on the altar of the temple for five thousand years. The Rai of the Maxin light ruled for 434 days. He revised the laws and provided a legal code that governed Atlantis for thousands of years to come.
After a long golden age, the civilization of Atlantis was corrupted by false priests, until “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Atlantis went down in the great cataclysm that is recorded as the Flood of Noah.
Abel and Seth
In the Genesis account of Adam and Eve, we see Jesus as Abel, the son of Adam, who found favor with the LORD but was slain by his jealous brother, Cain. When Eve conceived and bore another son, she called his name Seth: “For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.”
And when to this Seth there was born a son, Enos, it is written: “Then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.” Thus, through the rebirth and the renewal of the spiritual seed of Christ in Seth—the reincarnated Abel—the sons and daughters of God once again had access to the mighty I AM Presence by means of his mediatorship.
Joseph, son of Jacob
Jesus came again as Joseph, the son of Jacob, who was sold into slavery in Egypt by his brethren—the same who later reembodied as his disciples. In Egypt he was accorded high honors and authority in affairs of state because of his spiritual interpretation of Pharaoh’s dreams.
As Joshua, the son of Nun, Jesus felled the walls of Jericho and led the Israelites into the Promised Land.
Joshua was a mighty leader in battle who followed in the path and the archetype of the Lord Krishna, engaging in the battles of the seed of light to overcome the seed of darkness.

As David, he wrote the Psalms: “Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

Avatar of the Piscean age
Jesus came into his final incarnation having passed many initiations throughout his Eastern and Western embodiments; yet he retained the small percentage of karma that was required for his mission, and which he balanced by the time he left Palestine at age thirty-three. Jesus recognized in John the Baptist his guru Elijah, who had “come again” to prepare the way of his chela.
John the Baptist said of Jesus, “He must increase but I must decrease.” The guru stepped aside because this was the dispensation of the Piscean age. And so Jesus now would wax strong in the Lord to be that avatar of that age.
Between the ages of twelve and thirty, Jesus studied in both outer and inner retreats of the Brotherhood at Luxor and in the Himalayas. Serapis Bey, Hierarch of the Ascension Temple at Luxor, Egypt, has described how the Master Jesus came to Luxor as a very young man and knelt before the Hierophant “refusing all honors that were offered him” and asked to be initiated into the first grade of spiritual law and mystery. “No sense of pride marred his visage—no sense of preeminence or false expectation, albeit he could have well expected the highest honors.”

Scrolls that describe Jesus’ journey to the East are still preserved in a monastery in a valley in Ladakh, Kashmir. In India he studied under the Great Divine Director, Lord Maitreya and Lord Himalaya. It was here that he received key mantras for his mission, which he later taught to his disciples. Some of these mantras are included in “The Transfiguring Affirmations” dictated by the master Jesus to Mark Prophet.
Having been a member of the Order of Zadkiel prior to his final embodiment, Jesus had learned the science of invocation and alchemy. This knowledge enabled him to change water into wine, to calm the sea, to heal the sick and to raise the dead.
After his crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus went to Kashmir, where he lived to the age of eighty-one. At the conclusion of that life, he took his ascension from the etheric retreat of Shamballa.
► Main article: World Teacher
After his ascension, Jesus became the chohan of the sixth ray. When Sanat Kumara returned to Venus on January 1, 1956, Jesus assumed the position of World Teacher, replacing Lord Maitreya who became the planetary Buddha.
Jesus calls us to the path of discipleship under the ascended masters. He has released a series of calls to this path, published in the book Walking with the Master: Answering the Call of Jesus. Jesus says to those who would be his disciples in the age of Aquarius, “Greater love than this hath no man, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Blessed ones, this is not speaking of death but of a vibrant life lived—lived truly to convey the fire of my heart to all. This is the meaning of being a disciple who is called apostle, instrument and messenger of light, conveyer of that light.”

► Main article: Arabian Retreat
Jesus’ retreat is the Resurrection Temple, located in the etheric realm over the Holy Land. He also serves in the Arabian Retreat in the Arabian Desert northeast of the Red Sea.
The radiance of the Christ can be drawn through the playing of his keynote, “Joy to the World.”
