Alternatively, we can bring the Seven of Batons into relation with the 2nd Letter of the Divine Alphabet: Bet; the Second Arcanum: The High Priestess; and the quality of “Gnosis.” This finds its radiation in the Tree of Life between the sephira on the right side of the head (Light) and the crown (Eternity). Those who know the Grail Knight’s Practice can then perform the 2nd part: the Stages of the Passion; “Thy Kingdom Come.” (See Six of Batons, conversation two for the realisation that unlike the prior Suits of the Minor Arcana, in which the “turning point” of the Suit was the Five, here in the Batons the “turning point” may be the Six).
The Apocalypse readings for the Seven of Batons come from Chapter 20:13-15, 21:1-2:
And the sea yielded up the dead within it, and Death and Hades yielded up the dead within them, and they were judged, every one of them, according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the marsh of fire. This—the marsh of fire—is the second death. And, if anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the marsh of fire.
And I saw a new sky and a new earth, for the first sky and the first earth have passed away, and the sea no longer is. And I saw the holy city, a New Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.
