Good News! Christian prophecy watcher, David Meade, who gained headlines the world over when he said the Rapture was going to happen on Monday, April 23, 2018, when the planet Nibiru makes a big booboo, slams into our beautiful planet, and ushers in the return of Jesus, has called off what he labels the ‘fake media’ and has retracted his prediction. Instead, he now says ‘the Rapture/Nibiru Booboo’ (my term) will happen between May and December 2018.  Phew! Thank God! This gives us a bit more time to lighten up, and to brush up, on Rapture, Nibiru and all that is come, including another related prophecy making the rounds; the so-called Solar Event that — FLASH! —wipes out AI and ushers in the new, perfected human. Ahhhh… Inhale…Exhale.…I am not a debunker, but I also don’t like it when someone is peeing on my boots while telling me it’s raining. So, IS the Rapture Nibiru Boo Boo Flash coming? If so, what can we do to prepare? Read on.

I am always intrigued, and a bit suspicious, when fake news like this goes viral, especially in the mainstream mindstream. The reason is, embedded within the obvious ‘stupid stuff’ in these stories there is sometimes a “Men In Black” or ANCIENT ALIENS kernel of truth… and an invitation to pull on the proverbial hidden golden thread to find more truth. In Meade’s case, the ‘stupid’ part of his conspiracy theory is that the ‘planet’ — the planet — Nibiru will slam into earth and that the Rapture will affect anyone other than believing Christians.

This is because Nibiru, as a planet, does not exist. That is, if Mr. Meade is relying on the brave and enchanting, but in the end, erroneous, mistranslations of the Sumerian ‘planet’ Nibiru stories put forth by Zecharia Sitchin.

Beginning in the 1970s, Sitchin told a tale of extraterrestrials (called Anunnaki) from this non-existent planet coming to earth to mine gold to repair Nibiru’s decaying atmosphere. In his book, Wars of Gods and Men, Sitchin admits that he made up this story. This means there is no planet Nibiru. But, don’t take Sitchin’s word for it. Let’s pull on the golden thread.

As I wrote in my 2003 book, “Oracle of the Illuminati”, Sitchin’s theories were debunked by academics who point out that the editors of the monumental Chicago Assyrian Dictionary have located and compiled all the places where the word “nibiru” and related forms of that word occur in Sumerian tablets, the supposed source of Sitchin’s theories. Nibiru has an assortment of meanings, all connected to the core idea of it being a star of “crossing” or being some sort of “crossing marker” or “crossing point”.

The “root idea” of the nibiru word group and its forms almost always means something like “crossing” or “gate.” “Ferry, ford”; “ferry boat”; “(act of) ferrying” are also definitions of Nibiru. The Sumerians never connected the word Nibiru to a planet. They knew it was a star-gate.

“Let Nibiru be the holder of the gate of heaven and earth,” says one text. In the Gilgamesh epic, for another example, we read the line: “Straight is the crossing point (the nibiru; the gateway), and narrow is the way that leads to it.”

This line was later uttered nearly word for word by Jesus in the beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount:

Matthew 7:

13Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. 15Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.…

Clearly, Jesus read and understood the Epic of Gilgamesh and knew what the Nibiru is.

When the accumulated meanings of Nibiru are tabulated we may interpret this word as referring not to a planet, but to a “star, gate, crossing point” that enables one (such as Christ?), to “pass through”.

Simply, if you are interpreting Nibiru as a planet, you run the risk of making a big boo boo and missing the gate to heaven. With all the misunderstandings about this gate it is no wonder that few find it.

So, tell me more about this gate thing again…?


The second ‘stupid’ part of Meade’s fake Rapture Nibiru boo boo story is that he doesn’t seem to realize that when the Second Coming occurs, and Christ, flash, comes out of the suddenly opened heavens, the only ones who will actually care about this event will not even be on earth to witness it!

These witnesses are called Christians. All Christians believe in the Second Coming of Christ.

They will ascend in the air in order to meet Him, meaning they will not be on earth (as we know it) when, flash, the Rapture happens!

More, this will be secret, for it will be unknown to the world of unbelievers at the time of its happening.

This is what is so trippy about the Rapture concept. It asks us to believe that around a billion people will, suddenly, in a flash, disappear!

This will occur in two phases.

First, He will come for believers, both living and dead, in the “rapture” (read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven (in a nibiru/stargate?), with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 

Now, the book of Acts (1:7-11) elaborates on this moment, telling us that before Christ appears Christians will “receive power” and that Christ rides upon a ‘cloud’. This power is the Holy Spirit. It powers the cloud. (and, in a moment, we will see how this power relates to the flash of the Solar Event)

The Transfiguration of Jesus. The circular portal or sphere behind Jesus is referred to as a ‘cloud’.

This cloud of Transfiguration reappears during the Ascension.

“[Jesus] was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.” And then two men in white clothing said to them, “This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

Jesus’s ascension — and ‘de-scension’ at the Second Coming — is both physical and visible. It may resemble Christian ascension art in which Christ is shown wearing his bright white garment of light, symbolic of his changed body, and riding in what, to modern eyes, appears to be a blue sphere or portal. This is the ‘cloud’.

After Christ appears in a cloud, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.

And, believers will be in clouds in new bodies of light… in the air.

Worth mentioning is my 2012 book, ‘The Judgment Day Device’, which tells of precursors that will occur so we will know when this is about to happen.   There is a ‘pre-rapture’ phase when Christ’s brother, who bears the title of ‘the Rainmaker’, appears and assembles the Ark of the Covenant. He is called the ‘Rainmaker’ because he brings Christ on the cloud, that rests on the Ark/Throne, and clouds, of course, bring rain.

Christ in the Cloud hovers above the fully assembled Ark of the Covenant, the Judgment Day Device. This device is assembled by Christ’s brother, who the Essenes called the Rainmaker.

The ‘in the clouds’ bit refers to us being in a state of being capable of seeing Christ in the (star)gate. This means, we will be in the same state of being, the light body, as Christ. By definition, this requires a transformation of our being into the ‘body of Christ’. This transformation is symbolized by the wearing of a Robe of Light.

Since 2002, my research and publications have centered on the light body transformation or transfiguration as described in the rapture texts.

I illustrate this with Buddhist art of the descent of the Buddha of Infinite Light who rides upon a cloud to take a soul back to the Pure Land. He is surrounded by Boddhisattvas or saints who also ride clouds. I show this to say that the cloud business is universal. It crosses over and through the world’s religious traditions. This is because it is a cosmic or extraterrestrial teaching.

These texts are emphatic that in order to ride upon the clouds we must change our bodies.

When Jesus rose from the dead, His body was changed. His “new body” possessed continuity and identity with the body of this lower life, being still recognizable (cf. Lk. 16:19-31), yet was changed so as to adapt for both Heaven and earth, also being free of death.

1 Corinthians 15, its correlating Scripture: “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (v. 53). Verse 52 tells us that at the last trumpet, “the dead shall be raised…” like unto Christ’s own body and those whom He brings back to earth.

In this view, the rapture is the transformation into our light bodies or Christ bodies, which results in a change of one’s state of being from earthly flesh to celestial flesh, and the catching up of all Christians, dead or alive, to meet Christ in the air.


This transformation involves the transfer of “the power” from Christ to believers. In our Gaia program, ARCANUM, my wife, Clare, and I proposed that one key way to do this is through meditation on the Sacred Art of Ascension. Our forthcoming Nashville workshop, THE ART OF LIVING ASCENSION advances our work.

This transfiguration is described in the Book of Enoch, where we read about how the pre-flood sage walked with God. Having been carried off into the heavens in a whirlwind from atop Mount Moriah (or Meru) in Jerusalem, Enoch is instructed that on the Day of Judgment  that “the righteous and elect ones shall rise from the earth and shall cease being of downcast face. They shall wear the garments of glory. These garments of yours shall become the garments of life from the Lord of the Spirits. Neither shall your garments wear out, nor your glory come to an end before the Lord of the Spirits”

These ‘garments of glory’ refer to a new type of body possessed by those ‘in the air’. Glory means to ‘glow rays’, indicating directly that these glory bodies are glowing. When we glow rays we match the Rainbow Light Bodies of the Tibetan Great Perfection tradition.

This tells us that when the apocalyptic transformation of the Earth occurs, people will be wearing magical garments of power possessing glory, life, and imperishability.

The profoundly transformative nature of this glowing cosmic garment is made absolutely clear in II Enoch, where Enoch, having ascended to the heavens, hears God say to the archangel Michael, the leader of the Heavenly Host, “Take Enoch, and extract (him) from the earthly clothing. And anoint him with the delightful oil, and put (him) into the clothes of glory.” The Essenes called this oil Chreston, Chrestus, Chrestos or Christos, meaning ‘good’, ‘health bestowing’.

Enoch’s description continues: “And Michael extracted me from my clothes. He anointed me with the delightful oil; and the appearance of that oil is greater than the greatest light, its ointment is like sweet dew, and its fragrance like myrrh; and its shining is like the sun. And I gazed at all of myself, and I had become like one of the glorious ones, and there was no observable difference”. Here Enoch is explicitly described as being transformed into an angelic being, a shining one, by means of a change of garments!

He shines like the Sun/Son/Christ. He radiates glorious (rainbow) light. He has raptured and been Born Again Into the Rainbow Light Body.


Christ or Christos, we must remember, is not a proper name. It is a title. It means ‘anointed’. To anoint is to bathe or baptize oneself in the oil or Holy Spirit.

In esoteric terms, Christos or Christ, the Holy Spirit, is a tone, frequency, vibration or ray that emanates from the Central Healing Sun, is ‘stepped down’ in frequency by our Sun, and that cleanses, purifies and uplifts.

In Egypt, this anointing was depicted as a baptism in the living waters or keys (tones) of life that came through our sun.

Feeling the keys, tones, vibrations at Karnak, Egypt.

This is what it means when the Book of Revelation describes Mary as the woman clothed with the Sun. She is in her immaculate Rainbow Light Body.

As I wrote in my 2002 book, “The Healing Sun Code”:

“The Christos — the tone, frequency or vibration — is literally the white or pure carrier wave for this wisdom. This coding is carried forward in the term, INRI, nailed to the cross of crucifixion by Pontius Pilate. The Bible says it means “Jesus the Nazarene King of the Jews.” In the Gnostic tradition, however, INRI means Igen Nature Renovatura Integra; “by fire nature is renewed whole,” pointing to Jesus’ role as a deliverer of higher frequency knowledge or ‘fire’.

As Christ the Son is often compared to the Sun, we may posit that INRI, is another term the healing rays of the Sun.


In the world of contemporary ascension studies, there are fascinating references being made to a Solar Event, a stellar moment mentioned in Zoroastrian prophecies. At the center of the conversation is author and fellow Gaia host, David Wilcock, who adopted my Rainbow Light body research as the platform for his show “Wisdom Teachings,” and is now, intriguingly, pointing to the Zoroastrian tradition as a means to attain this next level of spiritual evolution.

The Zoroastrian prophecies have been interpreted to say that a light brighter than the sun, flash, will pass through our skin ‘beaming’ us instantaneously into our light bodies. In order to be a part of this ‘rapture’ we must be more than 51% nice and have only loving thoughts. Only positive people ascend. Negative people merge with the molten lava the rest of the planet is turned into as a result of the flash.

This ‘Solar Flash thesis’ is an interpretation of Hindu sacred texts, especially the Mahabharata, based on two academic sources. One, is the scholarly work of Mary Boyce on Zoroastrian prophecies of the ‘wonderful, excellent’ Frashokereti or “world renovation”, when evil will be destroyed and the good will live in perfect union with Ahura Mazda. More, Zoroaster taught that, at the end time, a savior-figure will bring about the final perfection of the world (frashokereti), in which the dead will be raised.

The other source is Cambridge academic HC Baldry, whose 1952 paper entitled “Who Invented the Golden Age?” explains that “Golden Age” is supposed to be “Golden Race”.

Both scholars aim to suggest that the golden age will be inhabited by humanoid beings who have in my terminology ‘perfect light bodies’.

Numerous guests at my presentations have asked for my comment on this theory. My interest in a Solar Event was actually aroused by Dr. Robert Schoch. During a conference in Sedona in May 2017, at which we both spoke, he unveiled his research on the Sun and the possibility of a coming solar catastrophe. This catastrophe appears to be cyclical. In Schoch’s view, Solar outbursts and plasma discharges brought about the rapid end of not only the last ice age, but the Zep Tepi era, the golden age when the gods lived among humans, as well. We are overdue for another such event, Schoch maintains.

I, finally, have time to look into it. What I have found is interesting, particularly as it dovetails with the work I am doing on the Essenes, the Jewish mystics who trained Jesus in the art and science of ascension, and their goal of attaining perfection for earth and perfect light bodies for humans.

As I discuss in my forthcoming book, “Risen: How The Essenes Attained the Perfect Light Body and Ascended to the Celestial City,” the Zoroastrian prophecy is the basis for the Essene’s belief in a restoration to our original perfect light bodies, once known to Adam and Eve.

When the forerunners of the Essenes lived in Babylon during the 6th century B.C. they learned from the Iranian Magi about one of the world’s oldest religions, that of the God of Light, Ahura Mazda, as taught by Zoroaster.

The ship of light Ahura Mazda rides within was relabeled the Merkaba by the Essenes. It is the cloud Christ rides upon.

Zoroaster taught free will, the importance of moral choices, and the law of karma to the ancient Perisans. At Judgment Day, each person must cross the Bridge of Judgment. The salvation of our souls, and our ability to cross this ‘nibiru’, depends on the accumulation of our words and deeds on earth. We cannot be ‘saved’ by the intervention of an avatar or divine being. However, Ahura Mazda will bring a spiritual liquid called parahaoma, which the righteous will partake of. This will transform us into our light bodies and unite us with the perpetual light of God’s glory.

The Essenes adapted many of these beliefs, but they also believed we could call in a high celestial being who could show us the way to attain our native perfection. This is what my book is about.

What we must constantly remind ourselves of is the understanding that this liquid/light arises from within us.

As regards this liquid/light I often remind myself, once again, of The Healing Sun Code, in which I discuss the work of scholar, Mircea Eliade. In Shamanism, he notes that among the Iglulik Eskimos a sequence of initiations concludes with the ang-ak-oq, meaning ‘lightening’ or ‘illumination’.

This angakoq, writes Eliade, consists of “a mysterious light which the shaman suddenly feels in his body, inside his head, within his brain, an inexplicable searchlight, a luminous fire which enables him to see with both eyes, both literally and metaphorically speaking, for he can now, even with closed eyes, see through darkness and perceive things and coming events which are hidden from others.” The emphasis here is on fire. Fire creates light. 

As the Hermetic adage says, “As above, so below, as within, so without”.

In rapture terms, through the angakoq the shaman overcomes sin (ignorance). Like Paul, he arises from the Earth and readies himself to bathe (his eyes, or I/ego) in the rays ~ or Holy Spirit of the Healing Sun.

In conclusion, the common thread running through the Rapture and Solar Flash dialogues is the idea that our  transformation will be instantaneous, spontaneous and extraneous. In the end it will seem that way. However, the flash that comes from within is the one we can guarantee will happen…if we pull on the golden threads of the Robe of Light.

Pulling on the these threads, however, we find that we must also learn to light our candle within, so to speak.  As Jesus taught, in order to become Christ, we must live by the commandments and light up our world with love. This is why the early Christians were called illuminati  and why a lighted candle was the symbol of their awakened state of being. The candle symbolizes our spinal cord, the wick is our pineal gland, the manufacturing plant that secretes the oil or liquid light that transmutes the body. The healing Son/sun provides the flash that lights the candle.

So, in the end, Monday’s Rapture is off. But, Tuesday could bring us that flash of a Healing Sun that results in the lighting of our inner candles and everything changing on Wednesday.

That is my hope, anyway.

For now, I’m off to the Vanderbilt University Divinity Library to pull on a few more golden threads of the Zoroastrians!

    Great Article William, as always, You are the Rainmaker, You assemble the throne in the minds of people, helping them to understand.
    About Clouds that the saints and Jesus ride on: The so called Saint’s, Christ Ones they live even now in our midst, but we can not see them because of the difference of frequency, they are too fast. When they appear in our frequency, in order for us to see them, they must occupy our space/time and slow down. What we perceive as clouds, is just their fast bodies “eating up” our atmosphere (pace/time) so that they can be in a “slow mode”. It’s like when the fast moving car suddenly stops, the tires produce clouds of fumes, so same is with the Christ-Beings, clouds around and underneath them is their fast time being slowed down to be visible for us. So, it is not that clouds are special vehicle for them to stand or move in the air… its the by-product of them slowing down to become visible for us, because we are soooooo sloooow and blind 🙂 Cheers!

    The new Christ of our time, which is awaited by all religions, by different names, eg Imman Mahdi, Buddha Maitrya, Christ.
    arrived from the Himalayas where he waited these times we are in with higher and lower divisions among peoples. He is
    here not as a religious Being, but a world teacher. Share-International has a website where you can read about the
    sightings and miracles of Maitrya, the proper name of this World Teacher. Benjamin Creme travelled to many counties to foretell of the events confirming
    that help for humanity through to a new world of peace and prosperity, essentially a Golden Age is indeed at hand. The messages are like those of Jesus, love one another, love all , forgive and be kind. Simplicity.

    I would encourage you to look seriously at the signs in the sky for the next four months. The Dresden Codex suggests that full reversal and the New Ahau/New Precession/New Ice Age this time … comes by winter solstice 2020. First shift is due well before then.
