Book of True Life - Volume 2
1 Blessed are those who ask me with humility and faith for the progress of their Spirit, because they will receive what they ask from their Father.
2 Blessed are those who know how to wait, for my merciful help will come into their hands at the right moment.
3 Learn to ask and also to wait, knowing that nothing escapes my love will. Trust that My Will is manifested in each of your needs and in each of your trials.
4 The child has the right to ask from his father what is within His law of justice and love, and the father in turn has the duty to care for the child.
5 I tell you that those who here on earth are doing My Will will enjoy My Love when they are in Spirit
6 When the weight of your cross weighs you down, call your helper, and immediately I will come to your help.
7 In the moments of trial, pray a short but loud and sincere prayer and you will feel comforted; and when you manage to be in harmony with your Lord, I will be able to say to you that My Will is yours and your will is Mine
8 Do not only pray when you are going through a painful trial, pray also when you are at peace, for then your heart and your thoughts will be able to occupy themselves with others Nor pray only for those who have done you good, or for those who have done you no harm, for although this is meritorious, it is not so great as when you intercede for those who have done you harm in any way.
9 Remember that I, your Master, have been the Helper and Redeemer of those very ones who cried out before Pilate, "Crucify Him! Crucify Him!" - You too can help your brothers to carry their cross in surrender: through prayers, thoughts, words, and also in a material way. In this way you will be able to make the atonement of him who is depressed by the burden of his pain or struggle more bearable.
10 This is a favourable time to be merciful. Therefore pray, pray and work; the fields are fertile and waiting for you.
11 Ask for peace for the nations, draw it with your prayers. Send healing balm through your thoughts and transmit light to the minds of your brothers. Verily I say to you, your petitions will never be unheard and ignored by your Father.
12 Be prepared, for many will deny that I have made myself known through the mind of man But you will tell them that it is not the first time this has happened: that God has spoken through man in the Three Epochs of Time, that from the beginning of the ages all the prophecies, inspirations and revelations given to mankind have been divine voices received through human mediation and have guided men of all times.
13 Those who deny, contradict, or are indignant about your testimony act in this way because they do not know what a spiritual rallies is, even though they call themselves scholars on earth.
14 It is My will that mankind, through this people who have been witnesses of My rallies in this form, learn that man was destined from his origin to be in contact with his Heavenly Father, to serve Him on this planet as a voice bearer, and that although in the past times the cases of men through whose lips the Lord spoke, isolated were - you are now living through a time in which men from generation to generation will achieve more perfection and clarity in the dialogue from Spirit to Spirit with the Father.
15 You will announce that in that time men will consult all things with their Lord, to accomplish their works in the world within the commandments of the Divine Law. The father of the family will speak to his children with words which the Lord puts on his lips. The teachers will teach under higher inspiration, the rulers will know how to transmit the will of God to their peoples, the judges will submit to the voice of their conscience, which is the light of Him who knows all things and who is therefore the only one capable of judging with perfection. The doctors will trust in the divine power in the first place, and their word and healing power will come from the Lord. The scientists will understand the so difficult task they have brought to earth, and because of their spiritual armament they will receive divine inspirations. Finally all who have brought the assignment to the world to lead souls on the way of development will know how to rise to receive my revelations and to bring them near to the hearts of men with the light and purity with which they have received them.
16 I am speaking to you of an age that is coming and that you are to announce and prophesy in the certainty that it will come. But if your brethren should mock your prophecy, do not despair, for the apostle John, too, when he announced what he had received in his union with the Father, was mocked and even considered insane. Nevertheless, the hour of the fulfillment of all that seemed impossible to some, and strange and incomprehensible to others, came.
17 The time in which you live today is exactly the time in which all that I said through the mouth of that seer, prophet, and voice bearer of the Master is fulfilled.
18 Because of his spiritual vision that apostle of love and truth was persecuted, martyred, and banished. But he did not lack my protection against his persecutors and executioners, which is why I tell you that you should not be afraid. If they put you in prison for this reason, I will set you free; if they deny you work or bread, I will preserve you; if they humiliate you or slander you, I will praise you and bring you justice, and if they kill you, I will raise you up to true life.
19 This is why I keep telling you to prepare yourselves through prayer so that you may spread this prophecy and give this testimony to your brothers with a heart full of gentleness, strength, faith and love
20 All that you will do in My Name under this armament will have to bear good fruit and you will see all that you have longed for come true
21 As I fulfilled all My promises to the men of old, so I will fulfill them also to you.
22 You live in times of fear, in which men cleanse themselves by emptying their cup of suffering to the point of exhaustion. But those who studied the prophecies already knew that the time was imminent when wars would break out everywhere because the nations did not understand each other.
23 It is still to come that the unknown diseases and epidemics will appear among mankind and confuse scientists. But when the pain reaches its climax among men, they will still have strength to cry out: "God's punishment! But I do not punish; it is you who punish yourselves when you deviate from the laws that rule your spirit and your body.
24 Who has unleashed and challenged the forces of nature, if not the unreasonableness of men? Who has defied my laws? - The arrogance of the scientists! but truly, I tell you, this pain will serve to uproot the weeds that have grown up in the heart of men
25 The fields will be covered with corpses, even the innocent will perish. Some will die by fire, others by hunger, and still others by war. The earth will quake, the forces of nature will be set in motion, the mountains will spew out their lava, and the seas will flare up.
26 I will allow men to push their wickedness to the limit to which their free will allows them, so that, horrified by their own work, they will feel true repentance in their Spirit.
27 You humble disciples, men who love your brethren, though you are full of imperfections: counter the influence of the passions unleashed by war with thoughts of peace, with prayers saturated with spiritual light, with words of brotherhood, and with works containing truth and charity. You must be prepared, because at the end of the war, when this conflict is over, the crowds will come from afar in search of balm for the body and the soul.
28 'Do not leave us when that hour comes, O Master,' this people says to Me. To which I answer you that I cannot leave you, for in all created things I am present.
29 I will speak to men through the forces of nature, from the seas My Voice will break forth and from one end of this planet to the other, Spirits will feel touched by the Light of Him Who is the only One who can say to you with true tenderness: "love one another!
30 This commandment will become for many their judge, others will feel it in their heart like an open wound, and for some it will be like a watchman who will not let them sleep for its fulfilment
31 You see now that I will not be able to separate myself from you, as one of My prophets once said: that in this time My Spirit will be poured out on all flesh and on every spirit
32 Wherever you go, I will go before you. Wherever you seek me, you will find me. Wherever you turn your eyes, you will see Me. But I do not want to announce to you with my word this day only bitterness and portents of great tribulations. When I speak of all these to you, it is to leave you waking and praying so that the trials may not surprise you at the time they come upon you.
33 Just as I have announced to you the war and the great calamities that await mankind, so I tell you that the day will come when all nations of the earth will enjoy peace, when men will love each other in Me, and their life, their work, their works in the world will be the pleasing worship that rises like fragrant incense from this planet to Me
34 You ask me: "Lord, when will this time come? And I answer you: When mankind has purified itself through pain, repentance, renewal and the exercise of goodness.
35 When the Spirit of men fulfills the covenant he has made with his Father, I for my part will fulfill My promises to the last. I will make My secret known and will spread it among My children in wisdom, peace and revelations.
36 My people, watch and pray as you go through this world. prepare yourself spiritually and physically, for soon I will send you out to speak of My truth
37 Prepare your spirit by the practice of prayer, charity and humility, which My teaching shows you, and prepare your body too, by turning it away from vices, bad habits and making it submissive until you have made it a perfect co-worker of the Spirit Once you are prepared, you will experience the clarity with which the way appears before you. That is why I tell you that the life of the Spirit is a stepladder of development from his departure from the divine bosom until his return.
38 When the Father created you, He placed you on the first step of that ladder so that you might have the opportunity to truly know and understand your Creator as you travel this path. But how few began the ascending path of development when you left the first rung! Most of them united in their disobedience and stubbornness, made bad use of the gift of freedom, and did not listen to the voice of conscience; they let themselves be dominated by matter, and thus, through their radiations, created a power - that of evil - and dug an abyss into which they had to drag their brothers with them through their influence, who began a bloody struggle between their weaknesses and depravities and their desire for exaltation and purity.
39 How different would have been the life you would have led on earth if you had remained steadfast in goodness and righteousness. For in her you would have reaped the fruits of my love. Yet you are not lost, nor have I banished you from my kingdom. Proof of this is that when I came to you, by wrapping My presence in human form, I came down to the world that you have created with so many errors and imperfections.
40 Here in this world I gave you My Blood and My Body to prove to you that I love you in spite of your errors and ingratitude
41 My unchanging Law which I gave you in the first times, the prophets' exhortations for good, My teaching and every one of My Messages are the spiritual light which man has received through conscience; and his Spirit would have merged with Mine if he had remained in the Law and purity from the beginning of his development
42 The fornication of men, their ignorance, their lack of spiritual exaltation, and the sufferings caused by their offences were the cause that the Father came down to save them, by making known to them the Book of Wisdom, which they had despised for the pleasures of the world, and to show them again the true way.
43 Many centuries have passed and many times the beings had to return to the world; but still they do not understand the essence of My Law and the nature of their own Spirit
44 I am still manifesting Myself to men in a humanised way, although I am also telling you that what I am revealing in this time is the Teaching which will raise the Spirits to that level from which I am speaking to you and from which they will be able to recognise and correct every error, rebuild what has been destroyed and recover all that they have lost
45 No seed is lost in My divine sowing, although the downfall of men has delayed their spiritual flourishing and bearing fruit
46 In this time the earth is being dug up under great pain of mankind, but it is necessary that I find My seed to separate it from the weeds
47 What was the cause of your sin and disobedience to My Law?
48 Listen, disciples: before you came into life I was already present, and in My Spirit was yours hidden. But I did not want you to inherit my kingdom without having acquired merits. I did not want you to possess what was already there without knowing who had created you, nor did I want you to go away without direction, without goal, without ideal.
49 That is why I gave you conscience, that it might serve you as a guide. I granted you free will so that your works would have true value before me. I gave you Spirit so that he should always long to rise to the lightful and pure. I gave you the body so that you might have a feeling for the good and for the beautiful by means of the heart, and so that it might serve you as a touchstone, as a constant test, and also as a tool to live in the material world. The Earth has been a school for your Spirit, on it the presence of the Divine Master has never been lacking. Human life has been a book of deep wisdom for the Spirit incarnate.
50 When the space was first illuminated by the presence of the Spirits, these - since they were still staggering and stammering like little children and had neither the development nor the strength to remain in the places of high spiritualization - felt the need for a support, for a base to feel strong, and so they were given matter and a material world, and in their new state they gained experience and knowledge.*
* See note 5 in the appendix
51 You have not yet become aware of the mission that you have to accomplish in this time among mankind; but I will make you aware, with My Word, of your struggle and the way to reach your goal
52 Your brain is small, and by itself alone it does not succeed in understanding the value of the gifts you possess and the importance of the work the Father has to accomplish among mankind through this people
53 My wise and powerful Will is preparing the ways in which My messengers, My disciples, My prophets, are to go out with the good news of the rallies of My Word, so that they may at the same time prepare the ways in which the great crowds of your brothers, whom you call foreigners, will come to the womb of your nation.
54 Those multitudes will seemingly come in search of bread for the body and peace for the heart. I, however, know that it will be their Spirit who will pursue the fulfillment of My promise, which has been kept in the innermost part of every spirit.
55 From distant lands and nations you will see your brethren arriving in the desire for liberation of their Spirit. From that ancient Palestine they too will come in droves, as when the tribes of Israel crossed the desert.
56 His pilgrimage has been long and sorrowful since he cast out of his bosom him who offered him his kingdom as a new inheritance. But it is already approaching the oasis where it will rest and ponder on my word, to then, strengthened in the knowledge of my law, continue on the way that shows it its development that was forgotten for so long. Then you will hear many say that your nation is the new land of promise, the New Jerusalem. But you will tell them that this promised land is beyond this world, and that in order to get to it you must do so in Spirit after crossing the great desert of trials of this age. You will also tell them that this nation is but an oasis in the middle of the desert. But you must understand, people, that the oasis must give shade to the exhausted wayfarers, and it must also offer its crystal clear and fresh water to the parched lips of those who seek refuge in it.
57 What is that shadow and that water of which I speak to you? - My teaching, people, My divine teaching in the activity of love. And in whom have I placed this wealth of grace and blessings? - In you, people, so that you may free your heart more and more from every selfishness and show it as a pure mirror in every one of your works.
58 Would not your Spirit and heart be filled with delight if, through your love, it were possible to convert this people, so attached to their traditions and spiritually at a standstill, to the Trinitarian-Marian spiritual teaching? Would not there be joy among you if the old Israel were to be converted through the mediation of the new Israel, that is, if the former were to obtain grace through the latter? So far, nothing has convinced the Jewish people that they must break with the old traditions in order to achieve their moral and spiritual advancement. It is the people who believe they are fulfilling the laws of Jehovah and Moses, but who in reality still worship their golden calf.
The time is near when this erring people, scattered throughout the world, will cease to look to the earth and lift up their eyes to heaven in search of Him who was promised to be their Savior from the beginning, and whom they misjudged and killed because they thought Him poor and found nothing good in Him.
59 Now the hour is coming in which that cross, which they imposed on me by judgment, will become for each one of those Spirits the cubit of righteousness, until finally their lips cry out, "Jesus was the Messiah!
60 They will seek me in their spiritual poverty, in their misery and in their pain, and they will be surprised when they see that he who in their eyes possessed nothing in the world possesses everything, and that those treasures and that kingdom of which he spoke to them so often were truth, and they will realize that nothing in the world - no treasure, no wealth, can be compared with the peace of the Spirit.
61 If that people turned their backs on me, I still wait for them. For men can break their word and even their covenants, but I am immutable and will never break my promises.
62 If it was told that I would be its redeemer, I will redeem it; if it was told that I would bring it into my kingdom, I will bring it into my kingdom
My peace be with you.
