1. Part I - The Mystagogue (4:19)
1. After eleven days and eleven nights, The Word Bearer ascended from the darkness of the cave, touched by the grace of his revelations. Grasped between his hands, a new truth in the shape of a tome he bore.
2. Long was the path that took Him to that very moment, but as one journey ended, a new one commenced. He headed towards the nearest town, a place were He knew His message was needed.
3. There He saw the crowd at the market, and with merciful eyes He saw how lost they were, for those who nourish the body but not the soul are bound to nothingness.
4. The Word Bearer stood in the middle of the crowd and thus He spoke: 'My children! Do you not see what is of you, walking aimlessly through life? Do you not see that you are nothing but empty shells? For as long as you neglect the Truth, you may as well die today.'
5. One of the attendants in the crowd asked 'And what truth is that? We already know what we need to know about life and death.' 'My child' said The Word Bearer, 'Let the light of truth pour down your throat from The Black Chalice, drink from the fountain of Lethe and let your mind be free of the pollution brought by false prophets. Learn of what you can become if you free yourself from your old life, as the serpent sheds its skin. Embrace your destiny as one of the Children of Rebellion, for we are the Mesu Betesh!'
6. Thus said, he raised the tome he was bearing, and the day became night for as long as The Black Chalice shone in front of the crowd. The Word Bearer then left then town, followed by those who understood the true meaning behind his words. And on that day, the Mesu Betesh were born.
2. Part II - The Baptist (3:58)
1. In the seventh year of the reign of the Emperor from the West, the Word Bearer went to the desert to listen to a man proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of The Prophet:
2. “Prepare the way for the Lord, make his path straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of darkness.”
3. The man in the desert said to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, ‘You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruits worthy of repentance, for even now the axe is lying at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.’
4. And the crowds asked him, ‘What then should we do?’ In reply he said to them, ‘Look into yourselves and find the darkness within, nurture it and let it grow until it manifests upon this world. Do not be blinded by the light of the material world, for your salvation does not lie in it, but beyond it.’
5. As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning him, whether he might be the Word Bearer they had heard of, the man answered all of them by saying, ‘I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with Holy Spirit and black flame.'
6. When all the people were baptized, the Word Bearer came forward to be baptized also. After being submerged in the waters, the heavens opened and a black flame descended upon him. It was then when all those present knew who he was, and knelt before him in adoration.
3. Part III - A Drop to Quench the Thirst (5:58)
1. The Word Bearer stood amidst his followers, trying to make them understand the Great Revelation, when one of them asked him this: “Oh great Word Bearer, how are we to stand alone against the hordes of ignorance? We are few and we cannot possibly do anything to spread the word”.
2. To this, the Word Bearer answered: “know this adept, for your journey has been long and you are to be trusted as few will ever be. You represent Humanity's future, the ideal into which mankind will evolve. But you are still weakened by doubt, and lack the mental strength needed to face the dangers of the journey ahead. But if the old race were to be permitted to develop free and unprotected, the whole of Humanity would soon be destroyed. We few who are privy to this truth have guarded it selflessly for millennia; it is our sole concern, for the very future of our race depends upon us, and us alone”.
3. Silence reigned after the Word Bearer's words, as his followers absorbed the truth in them, as the thirsty grass absorbs the first rains of the season. After a while, one of them said: “it is thus then that we are the chosen ones, is it not?” to which the Word Bearer replied: “All of those behind us are a stumbling block to us, for they do not have in mind the things of a God, but the things of a men. If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for the truth will be saved.…”
4. Part IV - We Are the Theotokos (4:39)
1. One night the Word Bearer gathered his disciples and said: "you have asked for guidance, and guidance you shall receive. Listen to my words and keep them close to your heart of hearts, so that you may repeat them when in need".
2. He then kneeled on the ground, and with his face touching the ground he said: "This of You I ask; tell me truly Lord, Which artisan made light and darkness? Which artisan made sleep and wakefulness? Who at dawn, noon and dusk Instils the discerning person with purpose? How did we become in thought and word and deed separate, chosing ignorance over wisdom? We are beings of not-being, the highest Spirit muded with the lowest flesh. Grant us your purifying flame! Let us burn in the all-consuming fire of your Truth! Help us become the God-bearers, so that we may give birth to a new humanity!"
3. He then stood up, and looking at his disciples he said: "We bear witness to the great change to come, for remember that we are that change. We bring a God into existence solely with our very defiance to this wicked prison, and we are that God! Hail the Theotokos!
5. Interlude (1:45)
6. Part V - Trial of Flesh (3:58)
1. Meanwhile, thousands of people had gathered. They were so crowded that they stepped on each other. The Wordbearer spoke to his disciples and said, "Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees. I’m talking about their hypocrisy.
2. Nothing has been covered that will not be exposed. Whatever is secret will be made known. Whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight. Whatever you have whispered in private rooms will be shouted from the housetops."
3. "My friends, I can guarantee that you don’t need to be afraid of those who kill the body. After that they can’t do anything more. But be afraid of your own ignorance, which will throw you into nothingness. I am warning you, be afraid of yourselves!"
4. “We are but artifacts of our own creation, sharp weapons made blunt by mindless repetition. They call me the Iconoclast, but I say I am the Liberator! Consume your former selves in a pyre of rage and emerge clean and renewed!
5. “When you are put on trial in front of rulers and authorities, don’t worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say. At that time your true self will teach you what you must say.”
7. Part VI - March of Mesu Betesh (5:36)
1. One day the Wordbearer said to his disciples: “I have come to throw fire on the earth. I wish that it had already started! I have a baptism to go through, and I will suffer until it is over.
2. “Do you think I came to bring peace to earth? No! I can guarantee that I came to bring nothing but division. From now on a family of five will be divided. Three will be divided against two and two against three.
3. A father will be against his son and a son against his father. A mother will be against her daughter and a daughter against her mother. I sow dissidence and chaos, because those are the only paths to salvation. For when we break the structure of societies, the core of this corruption, it is easier for our true selves to emerge, free from imposed shackles.”
4. Awake, arise or be forever fallen! The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. We can blame false prophets for not knowing what Truth is, but once the veil has been teared it is our responsibility to rise above the rubble and touch the spark of divinity!
8. Part VII - A Path Through the Silence of the Soul (4:24)
1. One night, when the Wordbearer returned from his daily meditation in the desert, he said: "Thus it is written in the Black Chalice: Look upon yourself and let all the darkness of your soul expand before the beam of true Gnosis. Let it fill you with unholy power so that it will open to you the treasures of thy wisdom.
2. All your desire is known unto it, therefore perfect what it hast begun, and what its Spirit has awakened us to ask in prayer. Turn thy face unto it and let it show its glory.
Then shall thy longing be satisfied, and thy peace shall be perfect.
3. Oh Darkness! Take away from me the heart of flesh, and give me a heart of dark flame, a heart to love and adore thee, a heart to delight in thee, to follow and to enjoy thee. Thou hast given us thy Word for a light to shine upon our path; grant us so to meditate on that Word, and to follow its teaching, that we may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day; the day when we will rise from this mortal coil into your eternal embrace. Thou are the true sovereign, our hope and our only salvation."
4. After his words there was a silence that covered their minds and souls. "The path is clear now in front of us, those who fear life and not death will follow it to the very end, through the nine circles of hell that surround us at every turn. Let it be so!
9. Part VIII - Man of Lawlessness (5:30)
1. It was in the last days when the Wordbearer still walked the Earth, when he told to his disciples: “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man gifted for destruction.
2. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
3. “Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.
4. And then the lawless one will be revealed in all of us, and we will destroy with the splendor of our coming.
5. And the man-machine will perish because they refuse to love the truth and thus not be saved by it. We will have risen from the mediocrity of humanity into the glory of the divine, our spirits set aflame by the black flame of sacred darkness. This the Black Chalice foretold, and thus it will come to be!
10. Part IX - Rise of the Hierophant (4:49)
1. The Word Bearer knew that his time was coming to an end, now that the flame of true Gnosis had ignited the hearts of men. He looked around him and saw the many faces of the once lost, the faces of those who now had left the machine behind and were on the verge of becoming living beings. The Awaken had begun.
2. He said: "this I tell you now so that you may cherish and truly understand: we are transmuted from being creations of the past to becoming creators of the future, and by this we must deconstruct ourselves, to be built anew in the light of the Black Flame and to be purified in the waters of the Black Chalice.”
3. Having said this, he turned away from the crowd and descended into the cave, as the sky turned black and a ray of shadows touched his forehead.
4. And as the Word Bearer descended into the embrace of the earth the ground shook and the staring gap of darkness closed, embracing the Iconoclast with the weight of eternity.
