The New Jerusalem; archetype of golden-age, etheric cities of light that exist even now on the etheric plane (in heaven) and are waiting to be lowered into physical manifestation (on earth). Saint John the Revelator saw the descent of the Holy City as the immaculate geometry of that which is to be and now is in the invisible realms of light: “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven.” Thus, in order that this vision and prophecy be fulfilled Jesus taught us to pray with the authority of the spoken Word, “Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven!”
Unascended souls may invoke the mandala of the City Foursquare for the fulfillment of the Christ consciousness, as Above, so below. The City Foursquare contains the blueprint of the solar (soul) identity of the 144,000 archetypes of the sons and daughters of God necessary to focus the Divine Wholeness of his consciousness in a given dispensation. The light of the city is emitted from the I AM Presence; that of the Lamb, the Cosmic Christ, from the Christ Self. The jewels are the 144 focuses and frequencies of light anchored in the chakras of the Cosmic Christ.
Cyclopea spoke of the City Foursquare in a dictation on July 5, 1970:
I am this night painting before you the vision of the Holy City, the magnificent City Foursquare, the divine kingdom that shall come upon earth even as you keep the flame. And whenever you see reports of problems, of crises, of injustices in your newspapers, I am calling by the power of Elohim in the name of Almighty God with the permission of your Holy Christ Selves that that vision of the City Foursquare shall flash forth from your consciousness into the world, into that situation, into the problem areas as a divine matrix of the cosmic cube, that City Foursquare that is the key to each man’s overcoming, the key to the ascension of the very planet itself.
Metaphysically, the four planes of the Matter universe
Metaphysically speaking, the City Foursquare is the mandala of the four planes and the quadrants of the Matter universe; the four sides of the Great Pyramid of Christ’s consciousness focused in the Matter spheres. The twelve gates are gates of Christ’s consciousness marking the lines and the degrees of the initiations he has prepared for his disciples. The twelve gates are the open doors to the twelve qualities of the Cosmic Christ sustained by the twelve solar hierarchies (who are emanations of the Universal Christ) on behalf of all who are endued with the Spirit’s all-consuming fiery Love, all who would in grace “enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise.”
The Retreat of the Divine Mother
► Main article: Retreat of the Divine Mother
Mother Mary has also spoken of the City Foursquare:
The foundation of thy being and pyramid of Life is indeed one by one the City Foursquare. And the Holy City which John beheld descending out of heaven—that city, beloved, is the citadel of higher consciousness of every man’s being in the vast reaches of the Great Causal Body. Collectively that great City Foursquare is the vastness of the Retreat of the Divine Mother on etheric octaves where the true City of Light is, where the golden age does reign.
The ascended masters have called North America the map of the “City Foursquare,” the Place Prepared and the Promised Land for the reincarnation of the seed of light of Abraham. God and Goddess Meru have said:
We are determined to reverse the tide by a strong and united City Foursquare of United States and Canada. And this larger square, finding its heart in the Inner Retreat, will be the very base and stronghold of the powers of Light and the chelas to move forth and roll back the entire momentum and the effect of the Four Horsemen when they are spent.
The Great Central Sun
I come, then, to kindle the flame anew, to give vision and perspective, to give orientation to the divine plan and to resurrect within you the memory of your original vows taken before the altar of the Most High God, the central altar in the City Foursquare, within the cathedral there, where the great organ played the keynote of your God flame as you entered the rings of the crystal fire mist and proceeded forth into the houses of the hierarchies of the sun, descending therefrom through cycles of infinity into cycles of time and space.
When the four lower bodies are in perfect alignment through the power of the Christ within the heart, then the forcefield of the City Foursquare in the Great Central Sun is superimposed upon man’s consciousness.
The city of Los Angeles
On March 20, 1975, Jesus consecrated Los Angeles as the New Jerusalem:
I, Jesus, your Lord and your Master, desire to have in this City of the Angels a permanent focus of light where the Vicar of Christ may come to give the word of salvation and to draw those energies—the energies of the light of the angels and the light of the Elohim—into the focal point of the Godhead. For this is that place in the new land and in the new Israel, in these United States. This is the place I have consecrated as the point of the New Jerusalem.
I desire to outpicture here the Holy City and the Retreat of the Resurrection Flame that is over the Holy Land. So in the New World and upon this continent let this city be dedicated unto the fulfillment of the resurrection for and on behalf of all mankind. I desire to come into my Church, where the called of my calling will receive me, and I desire to preach the Word through the Mother of the Flame each Sunday morning for the upliftment of humanity.
Other cities and places on the earth
On February 3, 1985, Archangel Michael spoke of the matrix of the New Jerusalem also descending over other places on the planet:
Concurrently with the descent of the replica of the forcefield of the Court of the Sacred Fire over Los Angeles, there is also the descent of the etheric matrix of the New Jerusalem at this point and in various points on the planet.
We have spoken before of the descent of this blueprint and this manifestation, but the descent must come through the Electronic Presence of the embodied chelas, through the magnet of their hearts, of their own I AM Presence, through their espousal of the will of God and that perfect faith that has trust that God will perform all miracles and save to the uttermost this community of Light to perform its perfect work.
Understand that we may announce many times the descending of the Holy City and you must understand what it is: It is the etheric counterpart of that which is the divine plan for each and every city and center of Light on earth. And ultimately, superimposed upon that which is the divine plan, specific and unique for the city, there is that of the New Jerusalem itself, which is the city of Christ and his saints and which contains the divine and true etheric matrix to which the lost tribes and the Christed ones shall return.
Let us see both manifest in every area—the local divine plan as the etheric city descending (that peculiar to that area) and that of the New Jerusalem itself. Let all realize that if there is to be any Justice on earth in any field of endeavor, it is this matrix that must be invoked and lowered into manifestation. Thus, those citizens of other cities, states, and nations may take this, my release—they may play it and play it as often as they will and write their letters to the Four and Twenty Elders that the very same etheric matrix of the Court of the Sacred Fire might focus over their states and nations.
I do not say what the answer will be. I am an advocate of the call and of the sword of blue flame. I am an advocate of the science of the spoken Word. I am an advocate of the power of the blue-ray chakra and what it can do to re-create the world.
A vision for healing the earth
I am this night painting before you the vision of the Holy City, the magnificent City Foursquare, the divine kingdom that shall come upon earth even as you keep the flame. And whenever you see reports of problems, of crises, of injustices in your newspapers, I am calling by the power of the Elohim in the name of Almighty God with the permission of your Holy Christ Selves that that vision of the City Foursquare shall flash forth from your consciousness into the world, into that situation, into the problem areas as a divine matrix of the cosmic cube, that City Foursquare that is the key to each man’s overcoming, the key to the ascension of the very planet itself.
And so I say by the power of Mighty Victory, by the power of that six-pointed star of divine balance as Above, so below, by the power of the all-seeing eye that penetrates in the center of that star, I am focusing within your consciousness this night and anchoring within your own third eye the vision of that Cosmic City Foursquare....
That focus is the most powerful image that can be brought forth for the manifestation of Christ and the kingdom of God upon this earth. It contains within it the full power of the World Mother and her divine matrix of the entire material universe for the manifestation of the Christ....
Let the All-Seeing Eye of God penetrate to ascertain what is occurring in the world, to ascertain the position of the evil forces. And then, let that projection of the cosmic cube be stamped upon them, sealing the place where evil dwells by the power of the Most High God.
The entire hierarchy of the Pleiades is behind this experiment for the complete transformation of the planetary orb by the power of the All-Seeing Eye of God. Therefore, I say, I give you the key: Call to the Pleiades and the hierarchies thereof. There are millions of cosmic beings with their cosmic retinues who will come forth in answer to your prayer, millions of Cosmic Christs who will carry into manifestation that divine blueprint.
