The Aquarian Christine Church Universal, Inc.
Levi H. Dowling,
Our Beloved Messenger Levi
Levi H. Dowling was born May 18th, 1844 in Belleville, Ohio. His father was a Disciples of Christ minister, as was his older brother. As a young boy Levi was aware of and highly sensitized to the finer etheric realm, he felt that there are etheric vibrations underlying all sounds, thoughts and events that are recorded on sensitized etheric plates (something like a Divine Computer disk). During his childhood he was an avid student of all of the world’s religions. Also, when just a lad he had a vision in which he was told he was to “build a white city.” The vision was repeated three more times over the years; the building of the “white city” was his transcribing of "The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ."
When Levi was only thirteen years old he debated a Presbyterian elder on the doctrine of everlasting damnation and torment of souls in Hell. At a very early age Levi understood the Truth that the doctrine of eternal damnation is incompatible with a Just, Loving and Forgiving God of Infinite Mercy. At an early age Levi was a prophet and seer of God’s Word. At sixteen, following in his father’s and brother's footsteps, Levi was an ordained Disciples of Christ minister; at eighteen he was the minister of a small church.
During the Civil War (1861-1865), Levi was a chaplain in the U.S. Army and delivered President Lincoln’s eulogy at his memorial services for the Union forces in Illinois. After the war, Levi attended Northwestern Christian University at Indianapolis, Indiana and was the graduate of two medical colleges. He practiced Homeopathic Medicine for many years and taught the use of electricity to medical students, demonstrating that he was a pioneer of modern medicine.
For forty years Levi studied and meditated upon mysteries in quiet contemplation until he reached such a level of spiritual consciousness he stood before the Very Throne of God. There the Mother God spoke unto Levi and gave him his commission to transcribe "The Aquarian Gospel." This is in the section called "Levi’s Commission." Here are some excerpts: ‘O, Levi, son of man, behold, for you are called to be the message bearer of the coming age - the age of spirit blessedness.
Give heed, O son of man, for men must know the Christ, the Love of God; for Love is sovereign balm for all the wounds of men, the remedy for every ill.’
‘Now, Levi, hearken to my words: go forth into these mystic Galleries and read. There you will find a message for the world; for every man; for every living thing.’
"The Aquarian Gospel" was given excellent reviews and endorsement by the New Thought Church and School in America and England and by the National New Thought Alliance. Christian Science is a branch of New Thought, although most New Thought teachings and Aquarian Christine teachings do not reject medical science, but integrate all methods of healing with positive thinking, prayer and faith.
'Levi passed from earth-life the thirteenth day of August, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine-hundred and eleven. Levi Dowling, the Aquarian Hierophant, stepped behind the thin curtain that separates the here from the hereafter.
He is the Ascended Master Beloved Levi, which means United, for he united all mankind through the transcribing of the Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ.'
- from The White City
Levi's wife was fellow mystic and Theosophist, Eva S. Dowling, who wrote the Introduction to "The Aquarian Gospel." Levi's son Leo W. Dowling continued in following and spreading the teachings of "The Aquarian Gospel." He was associated with Church Truth Universal - AUM of Los Angeles, California (now defunct). Leo wrote the preface to Julianna McKee's "Twelve Lessons in Truth - Aum" (1931), a textbook for the church which summarized "The Aquarian Gospel."
The Aquarian Gospel mentions the Aquarian Masters, and living masters and Masters who are At-One with God, and are Divine, and have made the Ascension.
The "I Am" and "Return to Eden" Movements
1930's - "I AM Activity"
A year later in 1932, the Saint Germain Foundation began, 25 years after the Aquarian Gospel was published. Many of the teachings are very similar; they are both devoted to Christ Consciousness and derive from Theosophy. The Aquarian Gospel was and still appears sometimes listed on their reading list. The I Am Movement or Activity, is what the Saint Germain Foundation is known as. Later the Summit Lighthouse (Church Universal and Triumphant) continued in the Ascended Master Teachings of the I AM.
1960's - "Return to Eden"/"Back to the Garden" Movement of Peace & Love
The Aquarian Gospel followers (Aquarian Christines) helped initiate and influence the popular "Back to the Garden (of Eden)" or "Return to Eden Movement"-as it became to be called in the 1960's. Both the I AM and the Return to Eden Movements have as their Goal the Ascension of all Mankind and the earth, to usher in the Golden Age, the Age of Aquarius, Heaven on earth. The popular interest in the Age of Aquarius and the Aquarian Gospel in the 1960's was the impetus for the popular greetings and pop art of Peace and Love-as being the True Message of Jesus the Christ. It spoke to that generation, a message of Peace and Love. Harmony and understanding.
1970's - "Lost Years of Jesus" movie
In the 1970's, Richard and Janet Bock, believers in the AG, used Nicholas Notovich's transcription of "The Life of Saint Issa" to tell the story of Jesus in India and Tibet in their documentary movie, "The Lost Years of Jesus."
1980's - Summit Lighthouse publishes "Lost Years of Jesus"
Both the I Am and the Aquarian Gospel became being even more popular in the 1980's, during the heyday of the New Age Movement. Much of that popularity, was due in part to Elizabeth Clare Prophet and the Summit Lighthouse, part of the I Am Movement and Ascended Master teachings. The Summit Lighthouse published "The Lost Years of Jesus," named after the 1970's movie "The Lost Years of Jesus" and both refer to the Aquarian Gospel. "The Lost Years of Jesus" contains the transciptions of the Himis monastery manuscript: "Life of Saint Issa" transcribed by Nicholas Notovich (1880's), and "Jesus Christ, the Leader of Men" transcribed by Swami Abhedananda (1920's.)
1990's - "Return Path to Eden" on the internet
With the birth of the internet, Michael O'Keeffe launched his "Return Path to Eden" website, which furthered interest in the message of the Aquarian Gospel and provided access to the actual text of the Aquarian Gospel online. Michael had studied the AG for decades prior to lauching his website. Click here for Michael O'Keeffe's "Return Path to Eden" Aquarian Gospel studies website:
There are three gifts, that the I AM Movemnent has added to the dimension of Aquarian Christine teachings, and are evident in their Divine Origin: the teachings of the Violet Flame of Transmutation that takes away karma & negativity, It is the Grace of God, the Baptism by Fire and the Holy Spirit; and the Chart of the Mighty I Am Presence, the True and Divine Self, which the Aquarian Christine refer to as the Holy Veronica, the True Image, another Divine Blessing.
The Third is the Miraculous Revelation of the Eye Witnessings of Several Ascensions of individuals who Transmuted, Transcended and Transfigured their physical bodies into Resurrected Flesh Divine, they were Ascended Beings, Ascended Masters. They transcended all earthly mortal bounds by the Victory of the Ascension, and became totally Divine, Resurrected Beings, in Electronic-Divinely Electrical down to the very Electron of their Beings-Eternal and Immortal bodies of Divine Flesh. They became before those who witnessed Ascended Masters. It all began when Guy Ballard, a great mystic and Adept met the Comte de Saint Germain, who is the Ascended Master Saint Germain, who was Saint Joseph, the father of Jesus the Christ, in a past life. Guy Ballard then met David Lloyd, an elderly English gentelman of the Lloyd family of Lloyds of London fame. He Ascended before Guy Ballard and others. Then other Ascensions began to be witnessed. One wonders if this is not the so-called "Rapture" of the Saints.

The Aquarian Key to the Book of Revelation
There are 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, 22 chapters of the “Book of Revelation” and 22 sections of “The Aquarian Gospel.”
Still thyself and listen. In the “Book of Revelation of John the Divine” (A.M. John the Beloved), Chapter 4, the Four and Twenty Elders are the Twelve Cherubim and Twelve Seraphim. The “Seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God” are the Seven Mighty Elohim. The Four Living Creatures of Revelation 4 and Ezekiel 1, represent the mandala formed by the cross and square of the zodiac constellations, Aquarius (the man), Taurus (the calf or ox), Leo (the lion) and Scorpio (the eagle), and the circle of the houses of the sun. The 24 Elders, the Cherubim and Seraphim are revealed to operate in their perspective foci around the globe of the earth, in a way that is somewhat analogous to a gyroscope in the physical world.
In Chapter 5, the seven horns of the lamb are the Seven Mighty Elohim and the seven eyes of the lamb refers to the Elohim Cyclopea, the Elohim of the All Seeing Eye.
Jesus the Christ, the Veronica & Saint Germain
In Chapter 10, v. 1, the mighty angel “clothed with a cloud; and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire” is the Sacred Veronica. “Clothed with a cloud” refers to the Pillar of Light. “A rainbow was upon his head,” refers to the Causal Body, which is the Rainbow Sacred Rays encircling the Divine I AM Spirit, the Mighty I AM Presence; the Causal Body represents the accumulated good of all the lifetimes of the individual. The “his feet as pillars of fire” refers to the bottom of the Veronica, where the individual is baptized in the Violet Flame. “His face was it were the sun” refers to the sacred icons of Beloved Lord Jesus the Christ of the Saint Germain Foundation, where He is in a glory like the sun. In Chapter 10, v. 2, the little book is “The Aquarian Gospel.”In Chapter 10, v. 2, “his right foot upon the sea” refers to “The Aquarian Gospel” in 1907, the birth of Aquarian Christines and the Return to Eden or Back to Eden movement; “his left foot on the earth” refers to the I Am Movement in 1930’s (Saint Germain Foundation; Summit Lighthouse). The right foot upon the sea refers to the conquering of emotions, water symbolizes emotions and purification.
In Chapter 10, v. 3-7, “the seven thunders uttered” refers to “The I Am Discourses by the Seven Mighty Elohim” Volume XIV. It was not released for many years, but “the days of the voice of the seventh angel” refers to the A.M. Saint Germain; he is the Seventh Angel, and the days of his voice are the years of the Saint Germain Foundation and they were allowed to release what the seven thunders uttered.

In Chapter 10, v. 10, “And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.” This means that when one has read “The Aquarian Gospel,” one finds a joy as sweet as honey, but then one realizes that most people in embodiment will not comprehend or believe it. In Chapter 10, v. 11, “thou must prophesy again” refers to the Aquarian Christines and the Aquarian Christine Church Universal, Inc..
In Chapter 11, the two witnesses are the Aquarian Christines and the I Am Movement; the two witnesses are also known as the two olive trees and the two candlesticks.
In Chapter 12, “the woman clothed with sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of stars” is emblematic of Mighty Astrea and refers to the constellations of Virgo, Libra and the twelve stars to Coma Berenices. It could be thought of as being symbolic of the Mother God and Christ, however it would pale a myriadfold in comparison; but it does symbolize the Holy Mother Spirit giving birth to Christ Consciousness within each believer. It also refers to Mother Mary as the angelic aspect of Beloved Virgo or Mother Earth giving birth to Jesus the Christ. Michael fighting the dragon refers to the constellation Hercules and emblematic of the Elohim Hercules of whom Michael is the angelic Aspect. The dragon is represented by Draco, a neighboring constellation to Hercules.
In Chapter 13, the beast, the Anti-christ, etc. refers to the modern embodiments of the demonic entity. Many Theosophists, especially followers of Alice Bailey, say that Hitler was an embodiment of the Anti-christ. Since, Anti-christ is an entity or spirit created by mankind that operates through mass possession of human beings, then yes, this would make total sense. But, this was not the first, and perhaps not the last embodiment of Anti-christ.
In Chapter 14, “the 144,000, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads” refers to the Silent Brotherhood or the Great White Brotherhood of Living and Ascended Masters. In Chapter 14, v. 6, “another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth” represents Levi’s Commission and “The Aquarian Gospel.”
In Chapter 22, The Spirit and the Bride are respectively the Mother God, Who is the Holy Spirit and the Church, which is the Bride of Christ, Christine, i.e. the Christine Church. Christine is said and pronounced like the female name. The New Heaven and Earth is the Ascension of the Earth into the Divine Immortal State of Purity and Perfection, where the fountains of the Waters of Life flow freely.
