Teaching 48:
1. I say to the multitudes who seek the shade of this large tree
where you may rest: Here you will be able to listen to my word
which comes to give you comfort and strength so that you can
observe with resignation the path which you will need to travel.
2. When you feel your spirit weakening, ask Elijah for his
walking stick so that leaning on it, you may come to the crystal clear
fountain of the Father, where the waters of his love and wisdom
overflow offering encouragement and joy to those who are traveling.
3. I am teaching you to build the true temple, for there are many
who have created sanctuaries without placing in them the foundations
of faith. My temple shall be like a tree whose branches are
extended with love throughout the universe, and where birds from
different regions come to sing. And when their voices unite, they
will come to form a harmonious, sweet, and perfect concert in order
to elevate it to the Creator. There your spirit will elevate itself to
seek the Lord, as Father, as Master, or as Doctor, but never as Judge.
4. The true God will be loved in true form. False gods will be
destroyed, and that worship which is imperfect and impure will be
replaced by spiritual worship, which will be a song of love for the
Father.
5. Truly I say to you that I have spoken a great deal to you in
this time and that you sometimes do not understand me while at
other times you leave me speaking alone in the desert. Nevertheless,
the echo of this celestial word will not die and will be heard by men
throughout the universe.
6. If spiritual things were converted into material objects, you
would see yourselves presently seated around an enormous table
filled with exquisite dishes which would represent my word.
7. Those who have not yet succeeded in overcoming their
materialism would prefer to receive an abundance of material
wealth from their Father rather than spiritual gifts and possessions.
8. Many individuals have departed from my table without
having tasted the food that I have lovingly prepared for them. When
will they once again experience a time of great blessings, similar to
the present period, in which they have come to earth to hear my
word? Those individuals are like hardened rocks who will need to
experience ordeals over a period of time in order to become
sensitive. Their spiritual inheritance will be kept from them as long
as they are unable to take care of it. However, I will return it to
them, for I have said to you that whatever the Father gives to his
children he never takes away, he simply preserves it.
9. This is the corpulent tree that offers shade and temporary rest
to those who are weary from their long journey; also, it offers them
fruit to nourish themselves and to regain their spiritual strength.
10. I am waiting for everyone under this tree. Some will return
satisfied because they have fulfilled their mission, whereas, others
will return dejected because they have failed to fulfill their mission.
11. When peace has fled from your heart and tears are running
down your cheeks, you have begun to meditate in order to know the
cause of your suffering. Then your conscience has revealed to you
that your suffering and lack of peace is due to your lack of
spirituality, unwillingness to fulfill your mission, and not practicing
deeds of love nor charity with your brethren.
12. Your present life is for you to amend your past mistakes, for
you are unaware of the sins that you have committed in past lives.
Today, your spirit is being purified because of its past sins. That is
why there is no peace in your heart.
13. Whoever loses his peace completely will eagerly struggle to
regain it, and he will discover that true peace is only attained by
following the path of justice and goodness. I am continually
signaling that path through your conscience. That is why those who
have heard my word strive to follow my footsteps. They know that
they can attain true peace by following my path, and that when there
is an obstacle or an ordeal along their path my charity will help
them to triumph.
14. My law does not require you to make superhuman
sacrifices; it will not enslave you nor restrain you with chains.
Although it is a cross, it is one of love, a cross whose weight will
strengthen you instead of oppressing you.
15. Remember that on several occasions in your lives you have
experienced true peace, and you will recognize that this has
occurred when you have done something good, when you have
forgiven, when you have reconciled with someone, when you have
left your comfortable bed to go to that of someone who is ill, taking
him comfort. Then the peace of my kingdom has been in your spirits
for an instant. Truly I say to you whom I am teaching to preserve
peace throughout all of your lives, that your mission from the
beginning of the times has been to take peace to your brothers. For
that reason, each time I communicate with you, I ask you to pray for
humanity, for your spirits united in one single thought and one
single intention will reach your brethren like a breath of happiness
and peace. You have also received instruction and power to give
tranquility, peace and serenity to invisible beings who dwell in the
spiritual valley.
16. The paths of the world are filled with dangers and
temptations. That is why, in spite of the fact that spirits emerged
from me filled with light and intuition, with weapons and means to
defend themselves and triumph, they often fall dejected under the
dominion of the world and the flesh.
17. I found you dejected and defeated, but you heard my voice
which came to you tenderly, and you arose filled with faith and
hope. Truly I say to you that every being who is lost or defeated will
hear this voice when the time comes.
18. In this period those who previously separated and strayed
most from my path will be the ones who will follow me and love me
with the greatest devotion.
19. My chisel of love will sculpture the most hardened rocks.
20. That is why I have come seeking your spirit, for it is able to
comprehend my doctrine. But before that, I have come to speak to
your heart, limiting myself through the human spokesman and
humanizing my word. This will prepare you and help you to elevate
so that you can communicate with me from spirit to Spirit. You will
then be able to hear my spiritual voice inspiring you and signaling
your path of restitution. Your physical body is, at times, similar to a
heavy chain or a thick veil which does not allow you to see beyond
anything material. In order to help you triumph in this battle, you
have here my divine inspiration which has been transformed into
human words because I love you. These words reach your mind and
heart like a caress.
21. These are days of remembrance and for that reason you have
entered into reflection and preparation. Oh, if you could only know
how to maintain spirituality throughout your life without falling into
fanaticism, you would be able to attain great spiritual evolution!
22. There is joy in the hearts of these multitudes. They know
that a spiritual banquet has been prepared for their spirits where the
Divine Master awaits to give them the spiritual food and drink, the
bread and the wine of the true life.
23. The table where Jesus met with his disciples in that time
was a symbol of the kingdom of heaven. The Father was surrounded
by his children. There was also the feast, representing life and love.
The divine voice spoke; its essence was the universal concert, and
the peace which reigned there was the peace present in the kingdom
of God.
24. In the beginning of this period you have tried to purify
yourselves thinking that the Divine Master would bring you a new
testament in his words, and such is the case. Today, I allow you to
remember the bread and the wine with which I represented my body
and my blood, but I have also come to tell you that in this new time
you will only find that nourishment in the divine essence of my
word. If you seek my body and my blood, you must seek it in the
divine things that I have created, because I am all spirit. Eat of this
bread and drink of this wine, but also fill my chalice, for I want to
drink with you; I thirst for your love.
25. Take this message to your brothers and be aware that blood,
which allows you to live, is the symbol for eternal life which is true
love. It is through you that I am beginning to enlighten humanity
with my new revelations.
26. Young men and women, children, the young and the elderly
will become the apostles of Christ in this Third Era. But truly I say
to you that I come to seek spirits more than human beings. Even
though all of humanity is not hearing my word, I want it to feel my
presence in this holy hour. Parents who are in your homes, those of
you who are bedridden, who hunger for justice, who are punished by
men, who lack peace in your hearts, who have been offended, who
are poor, all of you, become silent in my sanctuary in order to hear
the voice of your Lord who will say to you, Peace be with you.
27. My people: The apostles who surrounded me in the past are
also with me at this moment, although they are now present
spiritually. Those apostles include Peter, John, both the older and the
younger Timothy, Thaddeus, Thomas, Matthew, Bartholomew,
Simon, Philip, Andrew and even Judas himself, filled with pain.
They all accompany me in this new gathering. Where else on earth
could you be shown what I am now showing you? You would be
shown lifeless images, whereas, I can have those beings manifest
themselves full of life and light.
28. My spirit experiences both joy and pain as in the past
because all of my children have not yet attained salvation.
29. While you hear me telling you that you are sitting at my
table, you keep thinking about that disciple who in a confused
moment betrayed his Divine Master and his brothers. You then ask
yourselves if there will also be a traitor in this time, and each spirit
asks me, Could it be I? Tears come to your eyes, and you ask me for
strength in order not to yield to temptation. Truly I say to you that in
this time there will also be those who will deliver me to the enemy,
but it will not be my body which they will deliver, as in the Second
Era. Rather, they will attempt to hide the truth of my doctrine with
their deeds, causing humanity to believe that this doctrine is false,
even though it is filled with divine wisdom.
30. All of you swear that you love me and that you will even die
for me, but I say to you that you must be vigilant and pray, for Judas
had also sworn that he would give his life for me.
31. If my physical torment lasted a day and a night during that
time, until death brought an end to the suffering of my material
body, now in spirit I experience the pain of all those who suffer.
Within each criminal I am judged by the judges of the earth, and in
each prison cell I am imprisoned in the hearts of those who are
carrying out their sentence. Do not weep only when you recall those
painful hours which Jesus lived in the world, knowing that I still
have not ended my suffering.
32. Your spirits begin to share my sadness, understanding that
they still need to practice deeds of love and charity in order to reach
the joy and peace promised by Me to the one who follows me to the
end.
33. Elevate your spirits in simple prayer, for prayer is
communication and closeness with the Lord.
34. This supper is one of love. Do not forget it. Take the bread
from the table and share it with your brothers, and when all of you
are in the eternal kingdom you will understand that this
manifestation which I now give to you is a symbol of eternal life.
Come and join us, multitudes, for if in the Second Era there were
only twelve who sat at my table; today there will be 144,000,
although my call of love is to all of humanity. I want all of you to
accompany me in this time. There are those who tremble before my
word while some weep, and others consider themselves unworthy of
hearing it. I know each of your identities, and I say to you that
among this people, who now come in multitudes to hear my
teachings, are those who in the Second Era received miracles in
order to believe in me. There are also those who doubted Jesus, and
those who cried before Pilate, Crucify him! Crucify him!
35. Many saw me go toward Calvary with my cross on my back
without knowing who they were accompanying. They also saw
Mary's tears without becoming aware of who it was that wept. You
now see me again teaching and converting into my disciples those
who did not know how to recognize me in the Second Era.
36. On the cross I asked that you be forgiven, for you did not
know what you were doing. That forgiveness gave you a new
opportunity granted by the Father to have you open your eyes to the
truth, to be saved, and to come closer to me. But in spite of my
charity toward you, there are still some who continue to seek
imperfections in my word in order to have a reason to not believe
and to not follow me. But truly I say to you that there is no stain in
the essence of my word, rather, with this humble and simple word, I
have come to erase many stains from your heart.
37. You are all under my judgement. Nothing will touch and
move you more deeply than the charity of my love toward you, for
my judgement is one of love.
38. In the Second Era, Joseph of Arimathea opened the doors to
his home so that in it the Master could celebrate the Passover with
his disciples; they still did not know that the lamb to be sacrificed at
that feast would be Jesus.
39. Now I come to ask you to prepare a room in your hearts
where I may enter to remind you with my word of the deeds and the
teachings which I sealed with my blood in the past. But do not limit
yourselves to observing my passion only during these days of
remembrance. You must build a sanctuary in your beings where you
will remember eternally the lesson of love which Christ brought to
the earth. That sanctuary will be indestructible amid the ordeals
which are likely to destroy faith in humanity.
40. Today, I am having my voice heard in many regions, cities
and villages in order to summon many individuals. I sow healing
balsam, comfort, and peace among the hearts along my path,
reviving hope in those who believe themselves to be lost to the life
of grace, and offer life to those who are spiritually dead because of
vice and sin.
41. In the past I also went from region to region and my
presence brought joy among the needy, the sick, and the poor in
spirit. They did not all follow my footsteps, but they remained as
living testimonies to the miracles I performed in them. Men, women
and children came before Jesus; their faces showed affliction and
their cries told me of their misery and of their suffering. They had
heard rumors and news of my miracles, and they anxiously awaited
for the Rabbi of Galilee to come their way to extend their hands to
him and to ask him for some proof of his power. Their hearts were
simple; but there were others, those among the scribes, the doctors
of the law, and the pharisees, who in their dislike toward Jesus went
so far as to ask him to show them his hands to see if in them was a
visible power with which he cured the sick by simply touching
them.
42. My mercy did not distinguish among people. I was the
Father who came to save all of my children from their pain. Jesus,
the doctor, could heal all beings, and it was not necessary for him to
touch the bodies of the sick to return their health to them.
Sometimes, in order to give the multitudes some proof of what faith
is capable of, I would allow someone sick to approach me and touch
my robe in order to be healed.
43. In this era, it is no longer Jesus, the man, who comes to your
world to seek out the sinners and the needy; now it is Jesus, the
spirit, who manifests himself to humanity to find among the
multitudes of this period the new disciples who shall be faithful to
the end. At a spiritual table, he has offered them bread and wine
which are invisible to human eyes but real to the spirit. Many of
those who devotedly hear my word today did not believe me in the
Second Era, and I say to you: There are individuals now witnessing
this manifestation who still do not believe that it is God who is
manifesting himself through human spokesmen. What miracles do
they await in order to believe? Are they awaiting a new and different
era? They doubt this manifestation because I have chosen to
communicate through simple and uneducated men and not through
ministers and scholars; but I assure you that you will find me among
the humble throughout all eras.
44. Those who come to understand the value of this word and
have analyzed it to discover its true divine essence are those who
will keep it as the seed of spirituality which they will spread
tomorrow among humanity.
45. The voice of the Lord was heard in the tabernacle during the
First Era. In the Second Era I taught my lessons of love in the word
of Jesus. Now you hear my voice through the human spokesman,
while tomorrow it will be my inspiration which will illuminate each
spirit through an intimate communication between the Father and
his children.
46. In the Second Era I said to you, Man does not live from
bread alone but from every word which comes from God. Therefore,
the bread with which I represented my body was only a symbol.
Today, I say to you, Take the bread of my word, drink the wine of its
essence, and you will nourish yourselves eternally.
47. Understand that I come from the kingdom of peace to this
valley of tears. I descend from the mansion of the righteous to
converse with sinners. I do not bring a crown nor a king’s scepter. I
come filled with humility to communicate with you through these
illiterate human spokesmen whom I transform with my light,
surprising you with the infinite truth of my teaching.
48. I am not ashamed of you, and in spite of your sins and
imperfections, I will never deny that you are my children, for I love
you. Rather, men are the ones who are ashamed of me, denying me
on numerous occasions.
49. Today, I come to manifest myself spiritually among you so
that you will learn how to worship me in a spiritual and simple
manner, thus eliminating all materialism, traditions, and fanaticism.
50. You who have brought down the false gods which you
worshiped in past times will know how to enter the sanctuary which
I am now constructing in your spirits with my word.
51. I am aware that you would like for me to continue teaching
you through human spokesmen forever. But this must not happen,
for if I were to obey your request, you would then make no effort to
seek me with your deeds of love and would be satisfied to simply
hear my lesson.
52. I have told you previously that my kingdom is not of this
world, and truly I say to you that your true home is also not on earth.
The kingdom of the Father is in his light, in his perfection, and in
his holiness. That is your true home; that is your heritage.
Remember that I have told you that you are inheritors of the
kingdom of heaven. This planet is like a home which shelters you
temporarily; it is a place where your spirit confronts ordeals that
help it to become purified and evolve spiritually prior to returning to
its true spiritual home. For that reason, you should not ask
yourselves, Why have I not found perfect peace and happiness in
this world? Truly I say to you that even those beings who are pure
have not found true peace in this valley.
53. If this earth were to satisfy all of your desires, and if you did
not have to endure any spiritual ordeals, which of you would wish to
come to my kingdom? You should not curse your suffering since you
have created it with your faults. Endure it patiently, and it will purify
you and help you reach me.
54. Do you notice how deeply attached you are to those things
that reflect grandeur and are considered earthly pleasures?
Nevertheless, the moment will come when you will strongly desire
to leave them.
55. Whoever succeeds in fulfilling his restitution with elevation
will experience peace in that process. The one who walks on earth
glancing toward heaven does not stumble; neither will his feet be
harmed by the thorns found along the path of his restitution. You
who hear me, endure your ordeals with love so that others will
imitate you. Be aware that you are progressing along your path of
spiritual perfection, for if that were not the case, why would you
have come today? Why have you left your work in order to sit on
these humble benches? It is because you come seeking peace, light,
strength, and comfort. Among these multitudes are those who are
seeking my wisdom and my revelations in order to take this message
tomorrow to different regions. There are also those who have sinned
greatly, and who have told me with numerous tears on their faces:
Father, we are unworthy of hearing your word. But I say to you that
it is for you that I have come, for those who have strayed from the
path of evolution. I have never come to seek those who are righteous
on earth, for they are already safe. I seek those who lack strength to
save themselves, and I offer them my blessings and my caress.
56. If anyone has been told that his spirit is lost because of its
faults, and he still wishes to correct his errors and be saved, let him
come to me, for I will offer him my forgiveness and resurrect him to
a new life. He will be like Lazarus who arose when he heard the
voice of Jesus saying, Rise up and walk.
57. Likewise, I seek those who are ignorant in order to open
before their eyes the book of truth, the Book of True Life. I want
those who rejected and insulted me in the past to arise among
humanity today and to set an example of spirituality, humility, and
charity, offering testimony of my teaching with deeds of love toward
their brothers.
58. I see that you are taking advantage of my lessons, but you
are still far from attaining spiritual perfection. You are still weak for
you are unable to take more than three steps before temptation
causes you to fall.
59. Be strong, and if your parents or children reject you because
of my doctrine, offer them proof of your strength and faith and do
not fear, for my power and your example will convince them of this
truth. If any of those who rejected you should depart from earth
without your having converted them, do not be discouraged, for they
will be carrying in their spirits the seed which you sowed, and it will
blossom in other worlds.
60. Analyze the lessons that I gave you through my suffering in
the Second Era. I invite you to remember and meditate on those
teachings with me. Be aware that these are among the last times in
which I will speak to you about them. You do not know what comes
after, and you need to prepare yourselves in order to receive the new
revelations which I will give you. If you want to have peace in your
spirits and please your Lord in those days when you will be
remembering this manifestation, act charitably toward the needy,
forgive your enemies, and settle anything that you owe to your
brethren. But if you feel remorse in your spirits during the moments
when I pronounce my seven words, then how bitter and painful will
these words seem in your hearts! For your consciences will tell you
that when I asked for water to calm my thirst, you gave me bile and
vinegar to drink.
61. Pray, for you live in times of dangers and temptations, and
you do not know whether those who are at peace in these moments
will be fighting or cursing within a few moments. Always remember
what I am telling you today so that you remain alert, practicing
vigilance and prayer.
62. Observe how my divine essence is able to reach you through
the lips of a sinner. Is that not a miracle of power and love? That is
because I am the one who is able to make water sprout from a rock
and is able to produce light from the darkness.
63. I have come to speak to those who are humble through
humble human spokesmen, for if the lords of the earth had
transmitted this message to humanity, then truly I say to you that
you would have been left without knowledge of your gifts and with
no missions to fulfill; you would not have eaten at this banquet and
would have had to be satisfied with watching the feast from a
distance. However, I have chosen to manifest myself through these
spokesmen who have not been influenced in their lives by theories,
sciences, and religious issues. I have used them to summon all of
humanity without distinguishing anyone because of class,
nationality, religion, or language.
64. My voice comes from the spiritual kingdom where I am the
King, from that paradise where all of you will be with your Lord.
You will enter that paradise when, with humility and faith, you say
to me from your cross as did Dimas: Lord, remember me when you
are in your kingdom. The cross that I have given you to carry is the
mission that I have asked you to fulfill. You will need to heal the
sick, comfort your brethren, teach your brothers, and reveal my
divine messages to humanity. You feel the weight of this mission
because it involves responsibility, because it is delicate and pure,
and as you fulfill your mission, you will be ridiculed by those who
do not believe. They will ridicule and slander you because they will
not be interested in finding the truth in my doctrine.
65. That is the manner in which Jesus traveled his painful path
carrying the weight of his cross. However, the weight that he felt
from the ingratitude of the multitudes was much greater than the
weight of his cross.
66. Behold the Master reminding his children about events of
the past and relating them with events that are now occurring in
order for you to better understand my teachings. I want this doctrine
to be extended throughout the world so that humanity will become
enlightened. Thus, mankind will awaken to a life which it previously
ignored and will arise to form one single home and one single
family in the world. This will be the true people of Israel, the people
of God in which all differences between race and classes will
disappear. All beings will be similar to branches which proceed
from a single trunk, and all beings will obey my law which tells you
to love one another.
67. You who have taken this cross upon your shoulders
recognize the responsibility which you have of showing humanity
the truth of my manifestations and of my miracles. That is why I ask
you to have loving emotions and perfect knowledge of who you are
with respect to God and humanity. That is why I give you my
teaching of spirituality.
68. Prepare yourselves in that way, and you shall be good
soldiers in this struggle; you will be the true Israelites in spirit and
will also be my faithful disciples. Do all that you can to prove the
truth of this word. Do not forget that Christ allowed his body to be
torn apart in order to offer testimony of the truth he preached. Why
would he defend the life of that body when he had said before that
his kingdom was not of this world? In that same manner, be aware
that in order to reach the eternal life which awaits your spirit, you
can sacrifice many of your ambitions.
69. If you want to remove the stains which your brother carries
in his spirit, you must first remove your own stains. If you wish to
be forgiven, you must first forgive.
70. How beautiful it will be if when your spirit’s last moment on
earth comes, and its conscience, full of peace, can say the following
to the Father: Lord, all is finished.
My Peace be with you!
