Signs of Covenant

Reminders of ancient agreements

Inter-life regressionists such as Michael Newton share recollections of subjects who planted clues ahead of this life, to cue themselves to remember–when you see [x], you will recall [y]–the recognition of a task they had set forth for themselves to accomplish in this life, or an associate who would be critically needed in their endeavor. 

Michael Newton and some others recall other lifetimes in other worlds. Some of those worlds surely reached the natural decadence that is normative to developing races the more they grow reliant on technology; having lived in a prior existence on those worlds could make a soul especially sensitive to the warning signs of a world in collapse, feeling triggered, not knowing why, by economic risk, political instability and environmental degradation.

“When you see this, you will know.”

“The world itself will tell you what is coming if you know how to read it and to discern its signs and its messages.” Signs on the New Message wiki.

The rainbow, sign of the covenant in Genesis 9:12-16, no longer signifies what it did to the relieved eyes of Noah when he witnessed it. His gratitude fostered the interpretation we’ve received, the meaning given to that sign in the sky–no more mean Old God; a new agreement is given. 

Signs can occur out of time and for a specific time, sometimes appearing well in advance of any useful interpretation and, it appears from the Noah account, more time-limited than they were understood to be. Assigning the meaning for a sign given is one thing on the individual level, but harder to do for the entire collective for all time.  

The specifics in this sign of covenant initially witnessed by Noah might now become a stumbling block for casualties of recent disasters, among them floods. The devastation that wasted “all flesh” (excepting what Noah rescued) by flood was reported in other ancient literature and interpreted as a cleansing of impurity from the land, as the holocaust that cleared Sodom and Gomorrah was seen to do also. 

9:12 God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:
9:13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
9:14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds,
9:15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
9:16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”

Déjà vu

When you awake you will remember everything.”

Pareidolia. Synchronicities. These are different kinds of signs, not as clearly spelled out on first appearance, not able to be interpreted in retrospect as with the sign of the covenant with Noah or the embedded messages from the pre-existent soul as in Michael Newton’s case studies.

As with déjà vu, what is striking about noticing patterns that shouldn’t be there but are hard to miss once you do see them, is the shock of awareness that comes with them, the sense of a pause to interrupt the program called reality you’d been operating under, feeling like the spinning beachball of death just flashed on the screen that is real life. No meaning, no interpretation, just the trigger that trips your step as you were proceeding somewhat mindlessly along. Perhaps these signs that cannot be interpreted are only calls to awareness, a salute from prankster forces in the universe, a joke from the universe to remind us we are not as smart or as knowing as we think we are.

“Once an individual can begin to sense that there is a greater presence and a greater intelligence within them and can begin to receive signs and guidance from this intelligence, they have begun the long process in regaining and developing the most fundamental freedom.”(Signs on the New Message wiki)

It is striking that both Old and New Testament lessons this week and last are cited as occasions of UFOs in the Bible, as is the story of the razing of Sodom and Gomorrah. It is striking that UFOs as an explanation for these mysterious events is a simpler solution and more prosaic, more natural, than divine intervention.

Mark 1:9-15
1:9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
1:10 And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.
1:11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
1:12 And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness.
1:13 He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.
