Susanna and the Two Elders - Guido Reni

The Cries of the Innocent

May the book of judgment be opened between the guilty and the innocent!

May the Elohim judge between the guilty and the innocent!

May the Elohim reach the verdict between the guilty and the innocent

The Elohim who judge the guilty and the innocent are the Lords of Karma. Its chief of the Lords of Karma is the angel Anubis (an Egyptian God). The battle between goodness and impurity is terrible.

Goodness always humbles itself before the kingdom of Heaven. Impurity will always climb to the highest rank out of pride. As I, Juan Mirieth Auriel, have told you many times: “He who exalts himself will be humbled, yet he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

The Lords of Karma rule with “unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion.” The Lords of Karma does not however excuse the guilty, for there is no room for justification of crimes. It is an impurity that always seeks justifications of its crime in order to conceal itself against guilt. The crime itself is either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on one's sexual behavior. The Lords of Karma are also merciful and slow to anger, giving sinners a second chance to repent for their mistakes (assuming that a sinner is not beyond redemption).

It is by the will and power of the Innermost who removes the guilt from the man if wrongly accused of a crime that he did not commit or accused of a crime that is not contrary to the divine will. It is also by the will of the Innermost who adds guilt to a man if he deviates from the Narrow Path. No mortal man has the power to remove guilt from a man unless it is granted unto him by the will of the Innermost.

Let us look at the Book of Susanna and the Elders. It is Susanna, who always behaved with modesty, purity, and chastity. The two elders are the wicked judges with no fear of God, plotting an unforgiving scheme to commit adultery with Susanna. When Susanna was left alone to bathe, the two elders used this opportunity to entice her into committing adultery with them.

She morally refused to do so by saying “I am straitened on every side: for if I do this thing, it is death unto me: and if I do it not I cannot escape your hands. It is better for me to fall into your hands, and not do it, than to sin in the sight of the Lord (Susanna 1:22-23).”

There, the wicked elders then decide to create a false story to accuse Susanna. They claimed in their false story that they saw a young man embracing Susanna under a tree while the elders were walking in the garden; yet when the young man saw them, he pushed them aside and ran away. Behold; the wicked elders made false witnesses against her and wrongly judge her. Little did the wicked elders know that they will not prosper for long, for Susanna has cried unto her Innermost for help. She was condemned to death and was sent to be executed.

The Innermost (Yah-Hovah Elohim), however, has heard her cries of help and sent Daniel to save her from execution. Daniel has stopped them midway to her execution and commanded the people by divine will to “return again to the place of judgment: for they have borne false witness against her (Susanna 1:49).”

Daniel cross-examined the two elders individually and accused both of them of their wickedness and false accusations against Susanna. He asked both of them under cross-examination of which tree did the young man embraced with Susanna. Both elders named different trees: the holm and the mastic tree respectively.

When both the elders lied during the cross-examination, both of them realized their mistakes too late, for the assembly rose up against them and condemned them to death for bearing false witness against Susanna. Thus, innocent blood (Susanna) has been saved, let alone the wicked men who received the punishment they deserved.

Behold: the Innermost does not abandon the righteous and god-fearing people who have been wrongly accused of a crime. Whenever a righteous and a god-fearing initiate has been accused of a crime not contrary to the Innermost or has been wrongly accused of a crime, he will have his guilt removed and replaced with wisdom all according to the laws of karma. His name will be cleared from the “so-called” crime. The false accusers will be among the accused, for none of them will prosper. The wrongly accused will be innocent in the eyes of the Innermost, for they will prosper. The righteous ones will not be punished because of the sinners.

Let us look at the name: Daniel. Daniel (דניאל) means in Hebrew: “My God is the judge.” There is also a feminine name for Daniel; it is Daniella or Danielle (דניאלה), whose name means “My Goddess is the judge”. When accused by three wicked advisers of King Darius the Mede for praying unto God, Daniel was brought and thrown into the lions' den. Daniel was delivered from death by the lions through the angel of the Lord, shutting the mouths of the lions (Daniel 6). After Daniel's release, these three wicked advisers who plotted against Daniel were thrown to the lions. True to his name, he is the ruling judge under the Lord during the case of Susanna and the Two Elders.

Those who bear false witness, whether stubbornly or rebelliously, against the righteous ones will not prosper. It is written: rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness is as sinful as idolatry (1 Samuel 15:23). For them, they will be in the residence of the Abyss where the wailing and the gnashing teeth are heard!

Praise and glory unto the Innermost who hears the cries of the innocent!

Praise and glory unto the Innermost who helps those who are modest, pure, and chaste!
