Study Question 2

  • The master speaks to us about the crucifixion of the Christ in Jesus and about those who crucified the great light in him. (p. 254)
     
  • What current-day examples do you see around you or in the news of the Christ being crucified?
     
  • In your decrees and prayers ask for Victory to release his might golden flame of illumination into these matters.

Study Question 3

  • In your own words record in your Victory Journal the profound understanding the master gives regarding our ability to walk the path that Jesus walked. (p. 255)

  • “Practice makes perfect” is an adage that many have heard. How does this adage apply to you in the context of being in the presence of the adversary? What lessons can we learn by applying this adage to our spiritual path? (p. 255)

Study Question 5

  • Regarding the action of Jesus’ disciples in the master’s hour of intense testing, Victory reminds us: 

    “Is it not written that they all fled? —all of them? And these were the closest to his heart. Did he not in that moment think of his mother and of Magdalene1? (p. 255) 
     
  • Why do you suppose that Jesus turned to his mother and Magdalene?
     
  • Who do you turn to in times of testing and initiations and why?

Study Question 6

  • Even though Jesus’ disciples fled from him, how did he pass his initiations? (p. 256)
     
  • What strategy does the master give to help us not to flee as the disciples did and to pass our initiations? (p. 256)
     
  • What temptations will we face that may cause us to flee? (p. 256)

Study Question 7

  • What did Beloved Victory ask us to create to help us ward off the temptations that come to us in the hour of our initiations? (p. 256)

Study Question 8

  • Victory tells us: 

    “…these dark ones are in fact setting themselves against the circle of light and against the initiatic ring guarding the point of the One, guarding the descent of Sanat Kumara in form.” (p. 256)
     
  • What occupies the center of the circle? (p. 257)

Study Question 11

  • Victory gives us the following counsel:

    “…to fulfill the mandate of the Law becomes the delight of that one, and he meditates in the law of God. And in that meditation, it is as though he were one with Manus, the great Lawgivers of the races.” (p. 257)
  •  When we are one with God’s Law, what graces await us? (pp. 257-258) 
Study Question 12

Study Question 13

  • What did the master say was the grand purpose of Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection and ascension? (p. 258)

Study Question 18

  • What do we observe when an avatar repeatedly is left to stand alone? (p. 259)
     
  • What outcome do we consistently notice when there is harmony, love and wisdom among the faithful? (p. 259)

Study Question 23

  • Please describe what will occur with the stepping down of ascended master Lanello into this octave? (p. 264)

Notes:

  1. Mary Magdalene was an embodiment of Ascended Lady Master Magda, twin flame of Jesus. She was the first one to see Jesus after he had risen from the tomb. She also was the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven devils. 
     
  2. The fallen angels are those who followed Lucifer in the Great Rebellion and whose consciousness therefore “fell” to lower levels of vibration and awareness as they were by law “cast out into the earth” at the hand of Archangel Michael–constrained, by the karma of their disobedience to God and his Christ and their blasphemy of his children, to take on and evolve through dense physical bodies.  
     
  3. Author Elizabeth Clare Prophet explains in her book The Forbidden Mysteries of Enoch: The Untold Story of Men and Angels and discusses the fall of two separate groups of angels—the Nephilim and the Watchers. The Nephilim (“those who were made to fall”) are those who were “cast out” of heaven because of their prideful rebellion (Rev. 12:7-9). The Watchers, as revealed in the Book of Enoch, descended of their own accord through inordinate lust for the daughters of men.
