Yes. That is who is the current Messenger.
I will elaborate on your answer and Magi42's question:
In this e-mail I submit to you the following quotes for discussion. As for a
messenger before HPB, correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think there was
one. What signs did HPB leave for her followers to locate a messenger within
the final quarter century we are are living?
These quotes were written by Blavatsky in 1889:
"..I must tell you that during the last quarter of every hundred years an
attempt is made by those "Masters," of whom I have spoken, to help on the
spiritual progress... Towards the close of each century you will invariably
find that... Some one or persons have appeared in the world as their agents,
and a greater or less amount of occult knowledge and teaching has been given
out. ..you can trace these movements back, century by century, as far as our
detailed historical records extend.."
"If the present attempt, ...succeeds... then it will be in existence ...when
the time comes for the effort of the XXth century. ...the next impulse will
find a numerous and united body of people ready to welcome the new torch-bearer
of Truth. He will find the minds of men prepared for his message, a language
ready for him in which to clothe the new truths he brings, an organization
awaiting his arrival, which will remove the merely mechanical, material
obstacles and difficulties from his path."
H.P. Blavatsky, The Key to Theosophy (London: Theosophical Publishing Co.,
1889), pp. 306-307.
I will answer the second question,
>who is the current GWB Messenger?
by text copied from the current Messenger's WEB page. I invite open discussion
regarding this information.
The ...masters work with individuals in all traditions
throughout the earth. But when they find people who are spiritually sensitive,
they train them to directly receive their messages and new teachings. The
masters can also use these messengers to convey their light and spiritual
blessing—which helps transform those who hear the messages.
The tradition of messengers, best seen in the prophets of the Old
Testament, is ancient. The masters want their friends on earth to keep pace
with the spiritual and practical needs of the hour. And they've kept their
lines of communication open through their messengers.
In the late 1950s, the ascended master El Morya chose Mark L.
Prophet to receive the teachings of the ascended masters. In 1958, Mark Prophet
founded The Summit Lighthouse and distributed these teachings in letters called
Pearls of Wisdom. Today, the masters dictate these teachings to Elizabeth Clare
Elizabeth Clare Prophet receives messages, or "dictations," from
ascended masters by the power of the Holy Spirit. When she takes a dictation,
she experiences a dramatic increase in vibration and an expansion of
consciousness that allows her to convey the words and energies of the master
who is speaking through her. During a dictation, she is in a heightened state
of consciousness, but she does not go into a trance. She is not psychic or a
There is a tendency to call anyone who purports to convey
information from a nonphysical source a "channel" and to describe their work as
"channeling." Channeling is similar to 19th-century spiritualism. Like mediums
past and present, most channels make psychic contact with unascended spirits on
the astral plane. In short, they communicate with the deceased who have no more
wisdom than they had when they were alive, however great that may have been. In
any case, they do not have the wisdom of the ascended masters, the immortals
who have graduated from schoolroom earth and have reunited with God in the
ritual of the ascension. Because of their self-mastery and oneness with God,
the ascended masters are the preeminent teachers of mankind.
