John C writes:
"I have a question about this. I can understand the connection between OURANOS, 'heaven' and 'Uranium,' but what about the other references in these verses to 'heaven'?
"What are the clues to knowing when he is referring to Uranium and when he is referring to something else -- such as heaven the place?
"'As confirmation let us look up the word "heaven" in the Biblical Greek. It comes from the same word that Uranium comes from. Now let us literally retranslate this verse. "He does great signs in that he makes fire out of Uranium in the sight of mankind."'
"But also you quoted from Christ's prophecy in Matthew:
"'And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.'
"He surely couldn't be talking about gathering his elect from one end of 'uranium' to the other."
When using the Law of Correspondences one has to look at the context associated with it to make sure it is used correctly.
As I have taught before, it can only be used successfully by using the intuition and cannot be used through a black-and-white formula.
For instance a key ingredient in this law is the ancient statement "as above, so below -- or as below, so above."
This law only points us in the right direction for that which is above is always similar to that which is below, but never exact. The disciple will then take the hints from that which is below and through the use of the intuition understand that which is above.
As I have said before, there are at least three interpretations for each inspired scripture, but even many of the scriptures contain rather mundane statements that do not warrant much deep thought.
For instance we read this about Jesus:
"And he entered into a ship and passed over and came into his own city." (Matthew 9:1)
We can pretty much skip over this and get to the meatier words for interpretation.
Now in the various scriptures key words like "heaven" will have different applications and one must look at the content to see how they apply. Even so, the synthesis of the correspondences will be quite amazing.
Let's look at the scripture you quoted.
"And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:31)
The obvious meaning is that this means the Gathering will be from all over the earth, or all the earth that is under heaven.
Now Uranus, which also comes from OURANOS, the word for heaven, governs the Age of Aquarius which we are entering. Using this meaning we can come up with this interpretation. The Gathering will continue from the beginning of the Age of Aquarius to the end of it or from "one end of heaven (Aquarius) to the other."
Associating heaven with uranium in this particular scripture is a little more of a stretch, though Ruth made a good case for it. Uranium is the highest evolved of the natural elements and a human corresponds to an atom. The Gathering will draw from the Lights (highly evolved human atoms) from all over the earth.
"Words without thoughts never to heaven go."
-- William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
