76 – Anush-Uthra and Christ

In the name of the Great Life
Transcendent Light be Exalted!

“I came in gemstone sandals
And upon my hands were select pearls
In my left (hand) a club is placed
and the great axe of exorcism is set before me
I destroy, and I build a destroyer.
I establish my palace.
These images which are upon the walls
Are torn all the way from left to right.
You have removed wreaths from my head.
I go to generations and worlds
- To generations and worlds I go -
Until I reached the gate of Jerusalem.
I set up a throne and sat upon it.
In mysteries I spoke my wisdom concerning Jerusalem.
At the sound of my voice and my declaration
The bolts of the gate of Judah opened,
And the bars and bolts were rolled back.
Jerusalem shone in my radiance.
All the perfumes were fragrant.
Those whose smell was (previously) stinking,
Their perfume gets its fragrance from my perfume
I opened the eyes of the blind,
And I cured those with skin diseases.
I fixed the mouths of these stammerers and deaf people.
This word raises up the lame upon their feet -
I made them go.”

He raised his eyes. Where is Christ?
He changes his appearance,
He perverts his tongue when he speaks with me in various ways,
And says, “Who are you, from before Life,
That you set a wreath upon your head?
Going to generations and worlds
- Going to generations and worlds -
Until you reached the gate of Jerusalem?
You set up your throne and sat upon it,
And spoke wisdom concerning Jerusalem in mysteries.
The bolts and bars of the gate of Judah were pushed aside;
At the sound of your voice and of your declaration
The gate of Judah was opened,
And the bars and gate of Judah were rolled back.
Jerusalem shone in your radiance.
All the perfumes were fragrant.
Those whose smell was (previously) stinking,
Their perfume gets its fragrance from your perfume.
You opened the eyes of the blind,
And you cured people with skin diseases.
You fixed the mouths of these stammerers and deaf people.
This word raises up the lame upon their feet -
You made them go.”

He raised his eyes and he saw me.
Christ changes his appearance
He perverts his tongue when he speaks with me in various ways
And says, “Who are you, from before Life,
And from those instructed (in) wisdom?
Your mighty deeds occur in Jerusalem.
I trampled on the Earth,
And the heavens trembled at his appearance and shook
I wrote a book about living water
My book was not despised
He played on fire as on an instrument
My sign is fire in myself.”

Anush-Uthra did not sin.
He raises his eyes and sees me.
Where is Christ? He changes his appearance
He perverts his tongue when he speaks with me in various ways
And says, “If you have come from before Life,
Bring a letter of truth!”

I read the start of the letter:
I read about Adam and his wife Eve.
I read about the summit of every generation,
Seth-El the son of Adam.
I read about Seth-El the good
Who gave birth to generations and worlds.
I read about Ram and Rum
Until they died by the sword and ascended.
I read about Shurbai and Sharhab-El
Until they ascended in fire and burning.
I read about Shem the son of Noah
Until he ascended in floods of water.
All of them listened to and believed me, Anush-Uthra.
A place is established for them, from the place of light.
Everyone who did not listen to me, Anush-Uthra,
His place turns aside from the place of light
His name will be blotted out from my scroll
He will be darkened by death and will not shine.

Life is glorious and victorious,
And victorious the man who goes there.
