Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are almost at the end of our journey (and quest) through the Divine Tarot. As we saw in our yesterday's post we are all reborn in innocence and are like children again as what is said by Jesus in the Gospel of Mark chapter 10 verses 14 & 15:
[...] He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. (NIV) [...]
So we can only enter the City of God by being reborn again and be pure as little children. Our next step in our journey is the final step before we are entering the Home of God, The New Jerusalem (Revelations 21: 1-5a NIV). This final step is Judgement (XX).
In 1 John 4: 16-18 (NIV) we can read the following:
16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
We are now 'in the world in which we are like Jesus', that's the meaning of Judgement (XX). Let us take a closer look at this RW-Tarot card Judgement.
What do we see?
through the Tarot
the route to resurrection
like a phoenix
All of the cards that we have seen up to this point discuss aspects of our own personal growth, as well as aspects which apply to every human being. None of us is alone. So the pathway that we have seen leading from the pre-manifest Fool to the homecoming of the Sun, is a journey which every single one of us, in one form or another, must take.
The card Judgment continues this process and shows us something which each of us must individually engage upon. However, this card does something which none of the others have. It shows visibly all of the other souls of God uniting with us on our pathway.
This card indicates several things. First, is the process of divine Judgment. This occurs in two ways, before and after death. Before death, God is constantly watching, guiding, judging and supervising our actions to determine the next step for us. The laws of--as you give, so shall you receive; as we forgive, so shall we be forgiven; as we seek, so we will find; as we knock, the door will be opened to us; as we ask, we shall receive--these laws are immutable and create the framework for our spiritual growth. The nature of the homecoming is to recognize God's eternal presence.
shaped like Him
formed in His Hands forever
the Divine Potter
This is were the Divine Tarot is all about. It shows us how our lives are shaped in the hands of God, like clay in the hands of a ceramist as is written in the Book of Isaiah chapter 64 verse 8 [...] Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. [...]

I don't think there is such thing as Judgement before entering The New Jerusalem (Revelations 21: 1-5a NIV). We all have fulfilled our journey through the Tarot, through the life which is given to us by the Divine One. We came on this world as a child pure and innocent and now we have returned a child, reborn, pure and innocent ... yes I believe that we may enter the Heavenly Kingdom, and that we may sit next to the Lord our God at the same table enjoying His presence ...
our final homecoming
in His Home
