The following articles assume a familiarity with the works of Robert Powell, specifically Gautama Buddha’s Successor and the cosmic rhythms discussed in The Christ Mystery (see here, here, and here) and other works. The articles in this series were originally written in February/March 2015. I am posting them now publicly as they seem to be prescient.
In 2013, Robert Powell wrote in Gautama Buddha’s Successor that the scandal involving global surveillance unveiled by Edward Snowden marked the event of the incarnation of Ahriman into his human vessel, “Mr. X,” on June 19, 2013. At the time and since then, this date didn’t seem quite right to me; an important date to be sure, but something just didn’t ring true about it. I have discussed this with others and one thing to keep in mind is I had just days before become the father of my second child – possibly my awareness of the larger situation was limited at that point. In any case, Robert speaks in this book as well as in other books about three time periods in the books of Revelation and Daniel: 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days, all of them somehow related to the Antichrist’s main period of activity. This was a part of the piece I felt was missing. I pondered for a while these three time periods, and this is what I digested:
November 6, 2012 (election day) through July 3, 2016 is 1335 days.
December 21, 2012 (the Maya Calendar end date) through July 3, 2016 is 1290 days.
December 21, 2012 through June 3, 2016 (the descent of the Etheric Christ into the 8th sub-earthly sphere — see The Christ Mystery by Robert Powell) is 1260 days.
This doesn’t give us a definite “incarnation date.” But I think this is an accurate timeline for the unfolding of these (approximately) 3 and 1/2 years.
A further observation… bear with me:
Almost exactly 21 years prior to the Mystery of Golgotha, the Nathan Jesus and Solomon Jesus united in the temple. A few months later, the Nathan Mary died.
Almost exactly 21 years prior to July 3, 2016 gives us July 1995. Mr. X was around 33 1/3 years old (Robert Powell states that his birthday is February 5, 1962). At that time, he released an autobiography that began his public career. A few months later, the woman known to the world as his mother died. This is almost certainly an aping of the biography of Christ.
It seems very likely to me that world events could come to a head in the summer of 2016. Whether the incarnation of Ahriman began in December 2012 or June 2013, either fits rather well the indication from Gautama Buddha’s Successor that there are three years of trial beginning in June 2013, each bearing its own particular trial. We could say that the key three years are from June 2013 – June 2016.
The timeline formed by these three time periods (1335, 1290, and 1260 days) indicates another important gesture: the inversion of the life of Christ. There were 49 days between Easter and Pentecost; 28 days between the Baptism in the Jordan and the 40 days of Temptation. In the case of the time period from November 6, 2012 – July 3, 2016, it is like the time period from Baptism to Pentecost in reverse. The election in November 2012 could be seen as a kind of anti-Pentecost; 45 days later, December 21, it is quite possible there was a bodily union, a kind of anti-Easter. The thirty days between June 3 and July 3 is akin to the 28 days between the Temptation and the Baptism – only in reverse.
Therefore, it seems likely to me that the incarnation of Ahriman into a human vessel takes the opposite course of the Christ into Jesus. For the Christ, what began as a union in spirit, in the “I,” worked its way into the physical body over three and a half years. In the case of Ahriman, it begins as a physical union that gradually works its way into the “I” (from below upwards rather than above downwards). It is very likely that the time period leading up to and between June 3 and July 3, 2016, will represent a time of serious Temptation for humanity — the culminating point, in a certain sense, of the cosmic Days of Temptation, which are of a particular intensity from 1929 – 2018 (see The Christ Mystery). It is also likely that it will only be at this point that the incarnation of Ahriman into a human vessel becomes apparent, since until then he will not have united with (or to be more precise, displaced and possessed) the “I” of his host.
