                     How should one interpret this text? Of course, it is presented in a symbolical form.

                   But if we examine it in the light of the Doctrine revealed in the present work, it can be
                   easily transcribed in current language. The poetical representation of angels sent with a

                   resounding trumpet to assemble the elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven

                   to the other, is a message that Jesus hurled across millenaries in order that it may be

                   understood and  deciphered twenty  centuries  after  His  incarnation,  at the  end  of the
                   Cycle of the Son.

                     First  of  all,  it  is  important  to  know  who  are  the  elect.  The  reader  will  understand

                   without  difficulty  that  they  are  those  who  have  crossed  the  second  Threshold  and

                   become  new  men,  and  who,  through  the  second  Birth,  are  firmly  established  as
                   Individualities, each identifying himself with his real  I which represents a fragment of

                   the Christ.

                     They will be gathered together from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the

                   other, to form, together, the ruling elite in the approaching era. The reference to the
                   four winds and to the extremities of the heavens indicates that the elect will come from

                   all  parts  of  the  world,  to  whatever  race  or  creed  they  belong:  for,  Saint  Paul  says

                   explicitly,  in  Christ  there  is  neither  Jew  nor  Greek .  This  elite  will  be  called  upon  to
                   manage  all  human  affairs,  including  the  whole  of  organic  life  on  Earth.  This
                   centralization of power for the whole planet, in the hands of supermen, is the essential

                        Romans, X, 12.
