The Anti-Christ fulfills the work of Christ

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

(Read these basic posts: Thelema is post-Christianity, not anti-Christianity | Jesus is not the Savior, You are!God in Thelema is not the morbid Christian God )

The title of this post is ‘the Anti-Christ fulfills the work of Christ.’ In “An Open Letter to Rabbi Joel Blau” (available in Revival of Magick), To Mega Therion 666 informs us how Thelema supersedes Christianity. Keep in mind that the political state we know as ‘Israel’ did not exist back then and would not come into existence for at least a couple decades. Israel is understood as the Kingdom of Heaven, the spiritual Temple & Home of Zion (Let Thelemites remember that Zion = 156). Again, Israel refers to establishment of the City of God, not the political state of Israel that was established in the 1940s:

Your salvation lies in spiritual self-realization.

…Our Law contains these words: ‘Every man and every woman is a star…’ The economy of space demands that each star should satisfy its own conditions, move in its proper orbit. No artificial arrangement will secure harmony. It is not for an astronomer to propose a plan by which one group of stars may be kept from colliding with others… Each star is equally inviolable, eternal, individual…

When Moses gave His new Law, His was the Word which expressed the spiritual truth fit for that age and that folk. Other Masters have appeared from time to time with other words… In the same way, the Word of our Law which I now proclaim, formulates an ethical principle by the acceptance of which every man and every woman, of whatever race, may become sole arbiter of his or her own destiny, and achieve the automatically demonstrated certainty that every Star is supreme in its own sphere, all collision and confusion being due to that very mistake of moral misalliance which you indicate as the root of most of the monstrous growths in the Lord’s vineyard…

Jew and Gentile have been forced into contact under innumerable varieties of social condition. Friction has been at a minimum when the Jew has been in contact either with Arabic civilization or English jurisprudence. These two environments have a common factor: non-interference. English indifference and Moslem self-respect are agreed on the ethical principle:  ‘Mind your own business.’ This is one of the moral postulates of our own Law.

‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.’ The solution of the Jewish problem is simply this: ‘Shiloh shall come’ [Gen 49:10]. The Messiah must arise, and His name shall be called Anti-Christ, even as I who am already arisen, am called The Beast and my number is the number of a man, six hundred and three score and six [Rev. 13:18]. And this shall be the sign of the Messiah, Anti-Christ, He who shall lead at least His people Israel into the Holy Mountain, the True Zion…

One word in reconciliation of an apparent antinomy. Do not think of Anti-Christ as opposed to Christ, any more than you think of the pleura as opposed to the lungs which it bounds. Woman is not the opposite of man – the difference between them is necessary to their cooperation. Without it, neither could reproduce their common elements in either component… The arising of Anti-Christ will make possible the coming of Christ…

Fear not then that Anti-Christ, in establishing Israel, will injure Christianity, He will, on the contrary, assist the Christian spirit to cleanse itself from the confused acquiescence in anarchical amiability which it calls ‘charity,’ and is really cowardice, really the slave’s shame of his own condition, the sense of guilt which he soothes by minimizing all misdemeanours, ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.’ Let Anti-Christ arise, let Him announce to Israel its integrity… Then let Him speak the Word of the Will of his People, so that All Israel with unite energy, disciplined and directed, move as one man irresistibly to fulfil Destiny…

The Sun of Righteousness has risen, and he hath healing in his wings [Malachi 4:2]. Hear thou the Word of the Lord! ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.’ For in this Word shalt thou be sealed, and thou shalt save the people from their sin, for ‘The word of Sin is Restriction,’ and the sin of Israel is this: that it has never known itself, or done its Will.”

Love is the law, love under will.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

“The New Aeon proclaims Man as Immortal God, eternally active to do His Will. All’s Joy, all’s Beauty; this Will we celebrate.” -Aleister Crowley

God’s will is expressed by every man and every woman doing their wills. Man & woman’s will is not inherently opposed to God’s, but an expression thereof.  In doing our own will we fulfill the Will of God.

“Thou must (1) Find out what is thy Will. (2) Do that Will with a) one-pointedness, (b) detachment, (c) peace. Then, and then only, art thou in harmony with the Movement of Things, thy will part of, and therefore equal to, the Will of God. And since the will is but the dynamic aspect of the self, and since two different selves could not possess identical wills; then, if thy will be God’s will, Thou art That.” (Liber II)

Each person is a center of God’s Light, we do not need to borrow or depend upon another’s Light. Every man and every woman is a star, and the flame of God burns in the core of every star and the heart of all people. In giving forth our own light we give forth the Light of God.

Each person is a vehicle of God’s Love. The stars of Mankind get their fill and will of love as they will, when, where and with whom they will! In performing acts of “love under will,” we express God’s Love.

This isn’t Will, Light, and Love of God that is clouded with the morbid insistence on your wretchedness, baseness, sinfulness, and unworthiness. On the contrary, “Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us.” (The Book of the Law)

“Bring us through Temptation! Deliver us from Good and Evil! That Mine as Thine be the Crown of the Kingdom even now.” (Book of Lies, ch.2)

We need not look up to God but look with even eyes… no, the same eyes!  In a sense, Jesus was an example of the Man-God, who was both Man and God. In him was God made Man and Man made God. God ’sent’ Jesus to show that God & Man are & can be One. When we come to know ourselves as God and perform our Will as one with God’s Will – that is when we become our own savior. We do not need a savior from sin, but a savior from the restriction – external & internal – that inhibits us from full expression of Will.
