We, the Arcturians, by Norma J. Milanovich, transmits the message that the Arcturians, a star-people, are returning to earth to assist its inhabitants to move into a higher consciousness. These celestial beings, as Milanovich depicts them, are dedicated to Jesus Christ, as the most Radiant One, and to other ascended Masters.
Their service to Jehovah is told by their farewell salutation, “Adonai,” (which sounds to me like an improvisation upon “Adieu”). As Milanovich’s Arcturian glossary explains: “ADONAI- Hebrew word for The Lord. The pronouncement of the Holy Name Jehovah (or the name of the God of Israel) is attributed the power of working miracles. The revealed absolute Deity, the Holy Creator, the Redeemer. Used by the Arcturians in farewell as a seal to the transmissions.”
If the Arcturians transmit a message of love and light, as Milanovich claims, what does this love look like? And what resemblance does this Love have to the love preached by Jesus of Nazareth?
The Arcturians, as channeled through Milanovich, sketch a cosmology and history of civilization, which culminates in an apocalyptic confrontation, capped by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. According to the Arcturian myth of origins, the Arcturians lived on earth in primitive times. A warlike people later invaded, disturbing the peace and well-being of the Arcturian civilization. Now, the earth has been taken over, in equal parts, by love and truth (on the one side) and by hatred and lies (on the other side), by forces of light and by forces of darkness. We are at a critical turning point, and in some ways, a disastrous one. The Arcturians are returning as our saviors and helpers.
Once points of light are anchored onto the earth, and although there will be some strife as those in league with powers of darkness resist the encroaching regime of the children of light, nevertheless a Second Coming is on its way. The “most Radiant Soul, Sananda Jesus the Christ” will return. He will “open a path to the Father’s house.” One of Milanovich’s Arcturian informers identifies himself as the Beloved Disciple in John’s Gospel, one of Jesus’s closest companions.
The result of the Second Coming will be that the earth will experience a rebirth into a higher consciousness, while the children of Light will establish their policies on earth of equality, mutual respect, peace, ecological responsibility, and justice. This picture, if a utopia, sounds appealing.
Yet, I will raise two critical questions about the Christian vision that is expressed through this Arcturian scenario. As my earlier post indicated, for any channelled material, we may test the spirits: are the spirits responsible for this vision holy or somehow inferior and misleading?
To begin with the last-mentioned point, regarding testing the spirits, 1 John 4 suggests this criterion: I John 4:1-2 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.” The passage goes onto say: vv.7-8: “Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
What does it mean to confess that Jesus has come in the flesh? As the criterion for testing the spirits? One way to interpret this test is to maintain that Jesus’s coming in the flesh meant that he was capable of transforming the flesh — the material conditions of our lives. He did not merely preach a spirituality for the elite; rather, he performed works of healing and feeding for people of every spiritual grade and social category.
Jesus performed good works (healing, feeding, stilling storms). He even raised the dead. If the Arcturians serve this Jesus Christ, who came in the flesh, then it follows that we might expect to witness tangible miracles, and self-evidently loving good deeds, inspired by their message to the children of light.
Where are these miracles? Are children being fed? the sick in hospitals being healed? Tangibly and in the flesh? Are educational programs and libraries being offered to girls who lack education, across the world, through the dawning fifth dimensional vibration, heralded by the Arcturians? (For a similar critique, see: Critique of New Age Spirituality; see also the articles specifically about the Arcturians in this blog).
My second point of critique concerns the regime of love that is announced by Milanovich’s Arcturian guides. I refer the reader to an article, which raises ethical questions about the vision presented here. The author points out that various patterns of domination control, including implicit acquiescence to alien abductions, are evident in the Arcturian teachings. (See the critique here : Critique: We the Arcturians and here: Critique Milanovich Arcturians).
In brief, it may be questioned, how loving this teaching is, in fact; further, the Jesus, Sananda, the Radiant One may have only a verbal resemblance to Jesus of Nazareth, who came in the flesh and who is capable of raising the dead.
