As we noticed before, the number sixth announces an important moment of decision. The sixth great vision of John, after the outpouring of the vials, presents the final judgement of God of all those who were not part of the first resurrection.
The Christ logos and eternity did burst into time during the episode of thousand years, as the fifth great vision showed. Those men, who experienced their spiritual rebirth with the Christ, are now united in the so-called first resurrection. This represents the return to paradise, the completion of the evolution of this part of mankind in time. After the revelation of the Christ logos in time, now follows the revelation of the Christ logos in the spatial distances of the world, as far as this is a quality still imaginable in the spiritual realm (Schult, p.331). And I saw a great white throne, and him, that sat on it, from whose face heaven and earth fled away and nowhere was found place for them anymore.
And the books are opened. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand for the throne, and books were opened and another book was opened, which is the Book of life, and the dead were judged; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead, which were in it; and Death and Hades delivered up the death that were in them, and they were judged every one according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast in the sea of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in in the Book of life was cast into the sea of fire.
Heaven and earth fly away and Death and Hades are cast in the sea of fire.
The end of the Earth incarnation has come and we stand before the throne of God, the Father aspect of God, from whose face heaven and earth fled away. They dissolve in even higher realms where space does not exist. Space and Death no longer exist. Now is fulfilled what Jesus proclaimed (Mark 13:31): ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father’.
The last judgement
Here the moment has arrived where the balance is made up of all incarnations and developmental steps of the souls of men during the Earth. Also those who were developing spiritually at a later moment than the saints and those who fell in Hades. When a moment has occurred of being touched by the Christ love and their name has been written in the ‘Book of life’, they are taken with the others to the Jupiter earth. For them ‘the day of judgement’, the second resurrection has arrived. We read about two books. One is the Book of karma, containing all the works of man, the second is the Book of life. The Book of life is the book of the life-giving will of God for mercy. The book Zohar of Kabbalah also states that nothing in the world is lost. According to Hinduism everything is archived in an etheric library, called the Akasha records (Schult, p.332). The Book of life belongs to God’s heaven and in it the real name of man is recorded. The spark of God in man is part of the divine heaven of fire. Jesus says in Luke (Luke 10:20): ‘..rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.’ Here he refers to the Book of life.
The seven sphere of the dead
In the different groups of dead, Schult (p.333) recognizes the structure of spiritual spheres as also imagined in previous centuries by spiritual leaders such as Emanuel Swedenborg, Jacob Bohme, Dante Allegieri and Hildegard von Bingen, Just above the lowest sphere, the Sea of fire with the demons like satan, the beast and the false prophet and their followers, we find the abyss of hell (Hades) where evil human souls and demonic spirits dwell in the underworld. Above Hades is the sphere of Death, this is an earthly sphere where earth-bound souls dwell after they died. The sea, the sphere of water, symbolizes a higher cosmic sphere. Here stay after death the ‘incompletely reborn’ souls, which have put an effort in overcoming evil during their life.
Above the water sphere is the air sphere, also called Paradise. Here stay souls with a pure heart, who have reached the spiritual resurrection. Further upward is found the heaven of fire, mount Sion, where the accomplished saints, the first-born, dwell. Finally there is the new Jerusalem, the sphere of the fifth element, the quintessence, which supersedes earth, water, air and fire. This sphere will only be revealed at the end of the evolution of the earth. These seven domains constitute the spheres after death.
After the last judgement only the heavenly Jerusalem exists, which will descent on the new paradise-like earth, which will accommodate the men dwelling in the sphere of the heaven of fire, the sphere of the air and the sphere of water. In the counter-world the sea of fire will continue to exist in which Death and Hades are cast down (Schult, p.334).
