The word Lucifer comes from a Latin word meaning, "Light-bringing", a name sometimes given by poets to the Moon, or to the planet Venus when it appears as the morning star and to the day. In ancient times, this word was wrongly interpreted to mean Satan.
The only place in the Holy Bible where the word Lucifer is found is in Isaiah. The early church fathers were under the impression that, the passage could only refer to Satan, the prince of darkness. However, Satan in the Bible has no connection with the Lucifer of Isaiah.
Isaiah was figuratively speaking of the king of Babylon in reference to his glory and pomp, but he was actually referring to the destruction of a planet known to the ancient world as the "shining one". Lucifer and its remains are now to be observed in the telescope as the Asteroid Belt.
If the Prophet Isaiah was actually referring to a "fallen star" or a destroyed planet let us see if his description as found in the fourteenth chapter fits such a happening.
To begin with he wonders how Lucifer, then a morning star, fell from heaven. Today a morning star can be Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, or Venus when rising shortly before the sun and forming a conspicuous object in the sky just before dawn; hence, figuratively, a forerunner, or one who announces and guides. For a planet to be called the morning star it must be West of the sun and visible before sunrise. When bright planets are east of the sun and therefore visible in the early evening they are called evening stars. The ancients not realizing they were the same stars in different roles, called Venus when the evening star, Hesperus or Vesper and when it was the morning star, Phosphorus. Mercury was called Mercury when it was the evening star, but it was called Apollo when it was a morning star.
When we think of morning star now, we immediately associate it with the planet Venus. Therefore, we think the ancient word Lucifer also applied to Venus. However, this is not the case. Venus and Mercury were known primarily as evening stars, but when Venus was a morning star it was called Phosphorus. (This word comes from the Greek, phos, light; and phero, bear). The Asteroid Belt, then the planet Lucifer, was also known as the morning star.
The Old Testament is literally full of references to the end of the planet known to the ancients of Earth as Lucifer, and to outer space intelligences as Maldek, the "silver-tongued". The first three letters of the planet's name (Mal) mean: tongue. For a moment, let us refer once again to James 3:5-10. There is a double meaning to be found here, for James is not only talking about the literal tongue of man, but he is speaking metaphorically of Maldek (Lucifer).
This means that Maldek was a world of iniquity that exploded and burned and was a planet in our solar system that defiled all the other planets because of its evil, and Maldek (the tongue) set on fire its vortex, the power of its birth and being, and therefore was set on fire of the unseen state . . . because Maldek released the terrible hydrogen power she broke her vortex and was thereby reduced to an unseen state.
Man could not tame Maldek (the tongue) for it was an undisciplined child of the solar system; it wished to have power over all other planets and desired the authority of the Creator himself. Maldek was therefore "full of deadly poison".
I mentioned before, that the Old Testament has many references to the destruction of Lucifer or Maldek. Maldek, as a world, came to an abrupt end during the Exodus from Egypt in the days of Moses (13th century before Christ). The Exodus took place amid a great natural upheaval that terminated the period of Egyptian history known as the Middle Kingdom. Contemporary Egyptian documents describe the same disaster accompanied by "the plagues of Egypt".
One of the first visible signs on Earth of the destruction of Maldek was the reddening of the earth's surface by a fine dust of rusty pigment.
In the Visuddhi-Magga, a Buddhist text on world cycles, we find: "When a world cycle is destroyed by wind, there arises in the beginning a cycle-destroying great cloud. There arises a wind to destroy the world cycle, and first it raises a fine dust, and then coarse dust, and then fine sand, and then coarse sand, and then grit, stones, up to boulders as large as mighty trees on the hilltop."
So, Maldek came to an end with the coming of the red dust in the time of Moses and the Exodus from Egypt. As time went on the Earth was engulfed in more dense matter from the fallen planet.
Maldek caused terrible destruction on Earth and darkness was over the entire world. Mars was also greatly damaged by this catastrophe and that will be taken up later on.
It should be stated here that the word Marduk may have come from Maldek. Marduk was the chief god of the Babylonian pantheon . . . from his mouth issued flame. In the battle of Marduk with Tiamat, "he (Marduk) created the evil wind, and the tempest, and the hurricane, and the fourfold wind, and the sevenfold wind, and the whirlwind, and the wind which had no equal."
This description fits Maldek who created chaos with hydrogen devices or "the evil wind". Maldek, therefore, created "the wind which had no equal". Hydrogen detonations are without equal because they will completely destroy a planet if used. I must pause here for awhile in order to say that no true hydrogen bomb, as such, has ever been detonated on Earth!
Van Tassel has shown us that space intelligences are not particularly concerned with the explosion of plutonium and U325, the Uranium mother element, because this atom is an inert element. But they are concerned with the attempt to explode an actual hydrogen bomb. If we had set-off such a bomb we would now be nothing but a bunch of floating cinders . . . we would be as Maldek, an asteroid belt. Space friends vowed that they would never again allow a planet in this Solar System to destroy itself; therefore, no government on Earth will explode true hydrogen . . . it will not be allowed.
The element hydrogen is life-giving along with five other elements in the air we breathe, in the water we drink, and in the composition of our physical self. Explode a true H-bomb and all life on Earth will be extinguished. Van Tassel told us months and months ago that our scientists were "tinkering" with a formula they did not understand. The explosion of an atom of inert substance and that of a living substance are two different things.
Hydrogen "devices" have utilized deuterium and tritium, not hydrogen, as such. The elements exist in simplest form as atoms, and these atoms are composed of a nucleus about which electrons revolve. Elements are distinguished from each other by the number of electrons revolving about the central nucleus. Each electron carries a negative electrical charge which is off-set by a positively charged particle in the nucleus known as a proton. Elements may contain additional particles in the nucleus, which carry no electrical charge and are known as neutrons.
In getting back to Marduk, we find that in his battle with Tiamat, mother of the gods, he killed her and when he became the most powerful of all things he set about to create order in the universe. He then split Tiamat's body in two. This sounds like Maldek battling the elements of nature and finally subduing the atomic power (mother of the gods or forces). Maldek became powerful because of this mastery and attempted to rule all other planets. Maldek split this hydrogen force of nature (Tiamat).
Isaiah prophesied in "the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah". Somehow, Isaiah knew that at intervals of fifteen years a catastrophe occurred. The "commotion" of the days of Uzziah was only the beginning of sorrows and more destruction caused by Lucifer-Maldek.
I believe that Isaiah was visited by space intelligences who told him that catastrophe would come to Earth caused by the great fragments of Maldek. The space friends would have been able to calculate the time that the destruction would return. Proof of this is found in Isaiah 6:1-3: "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."
In reflecting on the terror that Lucifer-Maldek had caused for many centuries since the Exodus, Isaiah was inspired to write: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" Then the prophet asks how Lucifer was "cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!" Therefore, Lucifer's destruction along with the Earth receiving a pounding over many years by meteor showers caused the nations to be weakened. Many people will ask: "We have meteor showers now, why don't we have great catastrophe like they had in the time of Moses, Joshua or Isaiah?" It is true that we do have meteor showers in this day and age, but they are nothing compared to what the Lucifer-Maldek showers were, for these showers were much more dense.
Planets of our Solar System were greatly disturbed by the destruction of Lucifer-Maldek, and its moon Lilith-Malona. The Chinese say: "In the tenth year of the Emperor Kwei, the eighteenth monarch since Yahou, the five planets went out of their courses. In the night stars fell like rain. The earth shook."
Mars and the Earth suffered more from Lucifer than any of the other worlds. The two moons of Mars have already been mentioned; however, other facts must be added. How could Jonathan Swift have guessed not only their number (two), but their size and their short revolutions? Homer knew about the "two steeds of Mars" and Virgil wrote about them. Asaph Hall gave the names of Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Panic) to these two moons.
In mythology, the two steeds were yoked when the Greek god of war, Ares (Mars) prepared to descend to the earth on a punitive expedition. It sounds like the two artificial satellites (steeds) of Mars were used together for launching platforms before Mars sent spaceships to the undisciplined Earth in ancient times. To "yoke" animals, means to join the heads or necks of animals for working together.
Evidently the people of Mars knew what was coming so they constructed the two artificial satellites known as Phobos and Deimos. These two objects were well named (Fear and Panic) for they were created during a time of great fear, not only on Mars but on Earth as well. And there certainly was panic as Isaiah has shown us.
Although Lucifer actually came to an end in the time of the Exodus, it is believed that Mars did not receive as much of the destructive force of the blast as Earth did. This was due to its orbital position at the time. Mars took the main shock in the time of Isaiah.
The two "moons" of Mars readjusted the unstable condition caused by Lucifer-Maldek and balanced the Resonating Electro-Magnetic Field of the Planet. Moons are "balancers" of planets with which they are connected.
The people of Maldek who had been tampering with the force of "the terrible wind that has no equal", were warned by members of the Universal Tribunal on Saturn that their doom was certain if they carried out their plans to detonate actual hydrogen. But they would not listen; therefore, the children of Maldek and the innocent were removed to other worlds. The "black magicians" and "scientists of the left hand path" were left on Maldek to greet chaos of their own making. They believed that if by some chance the hydrogen would not do what was expected of it they would have control of the greatest power in Creation. They could then exalt their "throne above the stars of God".
Therefore, the souls of those responsible for the fate of Lucifer-Maldek were sent to some far off world or worlds in interstellar space, a "region of eternal darkness". Through countless lives they will be made aware of the enormity of their crime to their fellow man. And they will be able to progress once more "up the worlds". They will eventually find the "Great Path". All are on the road to All Perfection . . . none are lost!
That last day of days on Maldek must have been one of unbelievable madness and terror. The sacred "White Light" known as Ishtal-Maxin went out in their Temple of Temples; the sky was dark, ominous, foreboding; even the stars refused to shed their light.
Space intelligences say: "You can never use your great atomic power for peace or peaceful pursuits because the very nature of atomic power is destruction not construction. How can you attain peace by that which is essentially non-peaceful? We do not 'split atoms' for that destroys the flow of force through them. Instead, we use that flow of forces.
The Earth is now on the same path that Lucifer-Maldek took. Atomic power on that planet ended in destruction to end all destruction. But it will not happen on the Earth; our brothers in outer space will not allow the Earth to end as Maldek did. There will be catastrophes, yes, but greet them with a prayer on your lips and joy in your heart for it is a sign unto you that your deliverance is nigh.
Maldek was the "silver-tongued", or simply, "the tongue". Before the planet was eliminated from the family of our Solar System, there were altogether thirteen planets. Perhaps in the end of Maldek we have the origin of the unlucky number thirteen! Since there are two planets between Mercury and the Sun and one yet beyond Pluto, Maldek was in the seventh orbit. This is a very significant fact, not only because of the symbolic meaning of the numeral seven, but because of the fact that the tongue is situated in the middle or center of the head and face. Since Maldek was number seven among the planets it was situated in the center of the solar family, with six other worlds on each side.
