Teaching 53:
1. Why is it that in such a short time from the day that I
communicate with you to the next in which I give you a new lesson
I find that you have lost the peace that I gave to you? Do not lose the
blessings I give you along your path. You come frightened by the
trials and ordeals that you find on your way; you come with deeply
repentant hearts; that is the way I usually see you even though I have
given you my peace to have you journey with serenity and faith
along your path of evolution in life.
2. I have taught you to pray in order to free yourself from
dangers and stumbling blocks, from temptations and darkness. I
have told you that even the elements of nature will listen to your
prayers when they are unleashed by my justice; they will pass over
you without touching you because you know how to pray with faith and purity.
3. I will help your spirit to free itself from its sinfulness and
from the abyss in this period so that not only will you recognize God
but also yourself, as well as your spiritual gifts. But before that, you
will need to become purified through pain, otherwise, you will be
unable to truly manifest your spiritual gifts if you do not regenerate yourself.
4. Human passions are like a storm lashing against your inner
sanctuary, and only the one who prays is strong enough to resist the
trials, and only the one who watches is alert to protect himself.
5. When I talk to you of temples and sanctuaries, I am not
referring to the material places which you build but to your hearts,
for wherever you go there will be the temple, and in it you will
always find my love.
6. Humanity has created religions similar to the paths which
lead to me; but I say to you, Do not guide yourself according to the
different interpretations man has given to my law. The time has
come for each of you to know how to receive my inspiration and to
be guided by that divine enlightenment.
7. You sometimes ask yourselves, Why has the Lord only
spoken to this multitude of people when there are so many nations
that need him? To which I reply that in the Second Era only one
crowd witnessed my crucifixion and my death; nevertheless, the
blood of the Lamb fell over all of humanity to show it the path of
restitution. Thus in this time I will speak to these congregations, but
the light of my spirit is shining throughout the world.
8. I have already given you everything that you need to learn
and to practice my doctrine. I do not wish you to arrive spiritually
before me without a harvest, claiming that the harshness and
stubbornness of your material body did not allow you to fulfill your
mission; for the one who does not overcome the temptations of the
world will not have earned merits to present himself before the
Lord. Although the material body is very strong in its passions,
tendencies, and weaknesses, the spirit is gifted with a superior
power which it can use to triumph over evil.
9. What merit would your spirit achieve if the material body that
it were given lacked free will and sensuous tendencies? The struggle
of the spirit with its material body is one of power against power. In
that painful struggle, the spirit must test its superiority and its
elevation. That is the trial where the spirit has often succumbed
momentarily to the temptations of the flesh. The power exerted over
the spirit is so strong that it seems that a supernatural and evil power
was dragging you toward the abyss causing you to be lost in your low passions.
10. How great is the responsibility of the spirit before God! The
flesh is not bound by this responsibility; notice how once dead, the
flesh will forever rest on earth. When will you achieve enough
merits that will make your spirit worthy of living in dwellings which
are more perfect than the one in which you now live?
11. The world offers you crowns that only speak of vanity, of
arrogance, and of false greatness. The spirits that know how to
disregard those vanities have reserved in the hereafter another
crown, that of my wisdom.
12. In the Second Era I sought the valleys, the mountains, the
sea, and the desert to speak to you. Today, I also find that there are
hearts which, because of their peace, resemble valleys; others are
like a stormy sea, similar to the one that became turbulent when
Jesus sailed with his disciples in the boat; some, because of their
elevation, resemble a mountain when they hear me; and others,
because of their solitude and aridity, resemble the desert.
13. You who hear my word, love it, study it, and put it into
practice. Although there are many individuals who would like to
hear it, they will not be able to because they were not granted that
grace in this period! But truly I say to you that its echo will reach
everyone, and they will receive it with greater purity, since they will
receive its divine essence and will not receive my teaching by
hearing the human spokesmen.
14. Today, I am preparing your heart with my word. I am
teaching you to feel the pain of others because the one who does not
practice charity cannot become my apostle. Do not ignore needy
individuals who summon at your door. I do not want those
individuals to come to me weeping and asking if you are the chosen
people whom I have prepared to help those who have worries and
sorrows. O disciples, be alert so that you can hear when someone is
knocking at your door even in the middle of the night when you are
asleep. This needy individual who seeks you today may be the one
who, deeply touched by your charity, will be converted into my
worker tomorrow and will make your mission easier to fulfill. Many
of those who come today asking for a little love, understanding, or
justice will tomorrow be the shield that will defend you or the
witness who will save you. But what can you expect of the
individual who summoned at your door asking charity due to his
pain, yet you ignored him? Allow the one who is living a highly
immoral life to come to you; if you know how to deeply touch his
heart, he will repent. Allow the one dressed in rags to feel worthy of
being in your house and at your table, and do not feel disgust toward
his poverty. Spiritually he may be more pure and more finely
dressed than you. Do not reserve your best attentions and smiles for
those individuals who are wealthy or who present themselves
dressed with expensive clothes. Allow your hearts not to observe
those differences; use your spiritual gifts to help all beings equally.
Suffering exists everywhere. How much good can you do each day and at every moment?
15. If you observe young children you will see that there are
many of them without love, without law, and without bread. If you
walk among the youth, you will find them struggling with low
passions and mistaken paths. And if you walk among men and
women who have reached maturity in life, you will find among them
tragedies, bitter difficulties, widowhood at times, a lack of hope and
faith, as well as a lack of a true spiritual inspiration to comfort and sustain them.
16. Only my word can deeply touch and sensitize the human
heart that has been hardened by pain. Many of you have suffered so
much that you do not feel nor care about the pain of others. I speak
to you often of love and also tell you that you need to practice
charity with your brethren, for there is as much suffering in the
world as there are human beings, and human pain has just begun in
this period. That is why I am preparing you to once again comfort
your brothers with your love.
17. While the great nations of the earth like to raise a toast
throughout the world, lifting up a cup filled with bitterness and
pouring it out over humanity, I, from this humble table, offer a toast
with you, using a spiritual cup filled with tenderness and life so that
you might take this message to those who carry death in their hearts
and bitterness in their words.
18. Walk step by step along this path of love. Allow the stormy
winds to blow over you without weakening. You will hear people
telling you that you are following the path of destruction. But
become strong remembering my words, for I say to you that my
mantle will cover everyone who journeys in the world following the
path of blood which I have traced through my sacrifice on earth.
19. I want your face to reflect the gentleness of your spirit but
not hypocrisy, for I will be judging what your brothers are not able
to perceive. After the storms lash against these people, only a few
will be left surrounding me, for many will weaken because of the
trials. But those who are left will be the ones who will help my
doctrine flourish. Everything will be pure materially as well as
spiritually, for with my word I have come to open the path for you
which was closed by men's evilness and disobedience. The eyes of
your spirit will also open enabling you to perceive the future; I tell
you once again that every being will perceive me. I have asked you
to truly repent for your sins so that you will begin to regenerate your
life; that is why I tell you that I do not want you to be a hypocrite. I
want you righteous and sincere, offering testimony to the truth of my
doctrine with your deeds.
20. You will acquire great wisdom without needing the books
written by men, since your only book will be this word in which you
will have no influence from strange doctrines, or erroneous
interpretations, or the theories of men; this word will only contain
my law which traces the path of your evolution.
21. The dense veil of your materialism has caused you to
become spiritually ignorant and to remain spiritually asleep. Thus,
you feel that you are distant from the divine and are unable to
perceive the light which should be illuminating your spiritual life. In
this period my voice has torn that veil and shown you my sanctuary,
revealing to you new lessons from my secret mysteries. Due to my
spiritual manifestation, some individuals have developed faith while
others have preferred to continue perceiving life with their limited
spiritual knowledge. When will you understand everything that you
should treasure for your spirit?
22. I do not forbid you to scrutinize nature nor to accumulate
knowledge if these contribute to your well-being and the
advancement of your human lives. But I also want you to become
interested in gaining light for your spirit because that is the only
thing which you will take from earth to the hereafter and which will
allow you to progress along your spiritual path. I am so close to each
one of you that you only have to ask me something with your
thoughts to have my answer at the moment. No one will be able to
accuse the Father saying that he left his children since I have always
watched over all my sheep like a loving shepherd, and I can truly
say to you that not one has been lost nor will be lost, for I am
everywhere. My light and life exist everywhere. The love of your
Father exists throughout creation.
23. Man is not fulfilling my law. Today, I tell you that with my
lessons of love I am returning many of the strayed sheep to the path
of evolution. When these have returned to the sheepfold, I will bring
others until they are all present in the sheepfold of my love.
24. Today, you know that pain purifies the spirit and the heart
and that it is not the first time that you have had to remove stains
from your spirit left by your sins. The cup of bitterness has poured
out its contents over the world like a new flood except it is more
painful, more bitter, and longer lasting. The time will come when
pain will not be the one to subdue and detain man but, rather, his
conscience. If you still need pain to restrain you, that will be the
clearest signal that you have not evolved spiritually.
25. Consider, my children, that you will have to climb the
mountain carrying the cross of pain on your backs; but be aware that
the cross which is to elevate you will not be that of restitution for
your sins but that of your sacrifices on behalf of others. To men I say
that they should be guides, defenders, and guardians of humanity. To
women, to the mothers, I say, Pray for the great multitudes of
children without parents, without a home and without bread. Your
prayers will be like the wings of the lark that spread to shelter her
chicks. But in this instant do not only think about your loved ones
since they have your tenderness; rather think of those on earth who
are lonely and who hunger for affection. Pray for them. Who better
than you understands the coldness, the emptiness, and the thirst of
those tender hearts? Pray, and soon bread, shelter and love will
come. This is the right time to be charitable.
26. You have been confined to earth, to this planet which man
has transformed into a valley of tears, when it once was a marvelous
garden where the Creator poured out his blessings. But humanity
will soon realize that it has been allowed to return to earth to
restitute and to transform this desert of sadness and pain into an
Eden of light, into a dwelling of brotherhood and peace where my
law is fulfilled which says, Love one another.
27. Among those who hear me are the unbelievers who would
like to touch, as Thomas did, in order to believe. To them I say that
they will come to communicate with me from spirit to Spirit. First,
they will wash their cup inside and outside so that my word might
fall into it like a shower of blessings and of life for the spirit.
28. The sick would like to touch my tunic as they did in the
Second Era to have their faith heal them. I ask you, Why do you not
touch my Divine Spirit with your pure thoughts and with your
sincere prayers? You would obtain everything that your spirit and
material body need.
29. This is the lesson I give you, allowing you to look at this
book that I have opened before you throughout the eras. It is the
book of my eternal wisdom, which I am showing you today, and I
have opened it in the Sixth Seal. I am using human spokesman,
whom I have prepared, as my interpreters.
30. Throughout the times you have wanted to study my
manifestations in order to know my will and my mandates. I have
answered your questions, for everyone who seeks me out of love and
who hopes to find the truth, finds me, sees me before him, feels me,
and is nourished by my love. What great joy I feel when my children
present to me the fruit which they have harvested with their deeds of
love and charity, and with which they have relieved their brothers’
pain.31. This book which I have come to open one more time before
you contains all of my teachings. You will get to know what is
written in it, and it will bring you happiness, for it will guide you
along the path of your evolution.
32. You are anxious to receive the inspirations that I abundantly
given to humanity throughout the eras, but you have not taken
advantage of them. Today that I am communicating through human
spokesmen, will you continue doubting my lessons and my presence
among you? I have not come to speak to the dead, nor to beings who
lack the ability to reason, but to you who are human, who have a
conscience and who know me. If I spoke to the dead, if I spoke to
the rocks or to the elements of nature, they would already be
offering testimony of me. But my children's disbelief will not detain
my teaching, and this book will continue to speak of the truth, of the
life of grace, and of the hereafter.
33. What do you seek in my doctrine, and what do you want to
know, my children? Some say, spiritual enlightenment; I hear others
tell me, We are anxious to find peace. I say to you that if you prepare
yourselves, you will find in my word everything that your spirit
desires. I have prepared this nation to be a prosperous and blessed
land where you can see the mount of the new Zion, the land which
awaits you. Tomorrow, after having passed through the world
fulfilling with your mission, your spirit will find itself in the
hereafter, and all of you will be united in one single valley forming
with me a single Spirit.
34. It is necessary that you study in order to know the reason for
the events of this era, including the reason for Elijah's coming in this
period, as well as why I am giving you my word. Elijah has come as
my forerunner in all times to prepare the spirits of all men. In the
First Era Elijah came to earth and found that humanity was
practicing idolatry and did not believe in God. The world was being
governed by kings and priests, and both had departed from the
obedience to divine laws and were guiding their people along paths
of confusion and falsehood. They had erected altars to different gods
which they worshiped. Elijah appeared in that time and spoke to
them with words of justice, telling mankind: Open your eyes and see
that you have disrespected the law of the Lord. You have forgotten
the example of his messengers and have fallen into a worship which
is unworthy of the living and powerful God. It is necessary that you
awaken, that you see and recognize him. Eliminate your idolatry and
lift your eyes above every figure with which you have represented him.
35. Elijah heard my voice which said to him, Depart from the
wicked people of that nation. Tell them that rain will not fall for a
long time, not until you order it so in my name. And Elijah said, It
will not rain until my Lord appoints the hour and my voice orders it.
And thus saying, he departed. From that day forth the land was dry;
many normally rainy seasons passed without rain. There were no
signs of water in the sky; the fields felt the drought; the cattle began
to perish; men unsuccessfully dug into the earth looking for water to
quench their thirst; rivers dried up; overcome by the rays of the red
hot sun, the grass withered; and men cried out to their gods asking
for rain to return to them in order to sow and harvest the seed which fed them.
36. Elijah had departed by divine mandate. He prayed and
awaited the will of his Lord. Men and women began to leave their
lands in search of new places which did not lack water. Wherever
one looked there were caravans, and all the land was dry.
37. Years went by, and one day when Elijah elevated his spirit to
the Father, he heard His voice saying, Seek out the king, and when I
give you the sign, the waters once again will fall over the land.
38. Filled with obedience, Elijah humbly went before the king
of that nation and showed his power before the worshipers of the
false gods; after that, he spoke about the Father and of his power;
then the signs appeared; lightning, thunder, and fire were seen in the
sky, followed by an abundance of rain. Once again the fields became
green and the trees were filled with fruit, and there was abundance
of many things on earth.
39. Faced with this proof, the people awakened and
remembered their Father who called and warned them through Elijah.
40. Elijah performed many great miracles in that time in order
to deeply touch humanity.
41. In the Second Era, John the Baptist appeared to advise
people to repent and to prepare hearts to receive the Messiah. That
blessed forerunner spoke to the multitudes because the time for the
preaching of Jesus approached, and it was necessary for them to
recognize him. He baptized with water and he even poured it over
Jesus saying to him, Master, how will I baptize you if there is no
blemish on you? To which Jesus answered, It is necessary for you to
do this so that I may begin my journey teaching humility, so that
when those who follow me are ready to begin fulfilling their
mission, they will know how to purify and prepare themselves.
42. Elijah, a spirit of great power who has not been recognized
by humanity, has always been my forerunner. Today, he has come
once again to prepare the chosen, those who have served me as
spokesmen and all of humanity.
43. If you prepare yourselves and study my teaching in order to
come to know my will, Elijah will come to your aid and will be your
helper and friend.
44. Elijah is a divine ray who illuminates and guides all beings
and leads them to me. Love him and honor him as a forerunner and your mediator.
45. Disciples, if you want to enter the kingdom of heaven,
perform righteous deeds, obey my law, and my work will be
recognized by all, distinguishing itself among religions and
doctrines as the only way that I have traced for man.
46. To help you in your preparation, come to me and sit at my
table, where I have reserved a place for each one of my disciples,
and where you will be present at my teaching. Do not worry whether
the person through whom I communicate is a man or a woman, old,
young, or a child. Analyze my lessons until you find the divine
essence of this word, and you will feel my presence through any of
my spokesmen. Take advantage of these moments for later you
might weep if you do not do so.
47. Allow this multitude of people to grow just as the trees grow
by multiplying their branches, just as rivers extend themselves
forming new rivers and streams. Notice how from one congregation
new ones emerge in the communities and cities.
48. It is my Spirit that has sent you to different regions to take
the message of spirituality. Why do some individuals separate
themselves from the principles of spirituality that I have shown
them? Although I have taught them to practice deeds of love and
charity without expecting anything in return, they are using their
spiritual gifts for monetary gain even though they received their gifts
without cost. Do you not recall that from the first lessons which you
heard, I told you to be alert and pray, for temptation would threaten
you along your path? Recall and remember that I also told you that I
have much more to give you than what you request so that you will
prepare yourself to receive things that are righteous from me.
49. Be aware that in the book of your destiny I have designated
the day and the hour when the doors of the hereafter will open
allowing your spirit to enter. Once you have entered, you will see all
of your work on earth and all of your past. You should not want, at
that time, to hear complaints and accusations against you stating that
you are responsible for their troubles.
50. The spirit feels great sorrow and pain when, after having
arrived to that mansion of light and peace, it hears the cries of its
victims! If you do not wish to experience that traumatic moment,
begin now to prepare the fields which I have entrusted to you,
sowing in them the seed of my teaching in its pure form. Do not
consider yourselves incapable of fulfilling deeds that are worthy of
me. Do not abandon your work when it is half finished, thus
forgetting your mission and once again yielding to the temptations of the world.
51. Hurry to listen to my word; remember that the day
approaches when you will no longer hear me in this form. You no
longer need for the prophets to appear before you, as they did in the
past, when they called upon you to repent and threatened you with
the justice of God if you ignored their warning. Today I want you to
be the prophets who will awaken humanity and communicate this
divine message to it. I will perform miracles on your path and give
you weapons of truth with which to fight, for others will battle against you.
52. I will straighten out many crooked paths using the
righteousness of my good disciples. The spiritual presence of the
people of God, called "Israel" on earth, will be felt among humanity,
and many will come to understand that what had been interpreted in
material form had an elevated spiritual meaning.
53. If in order to fulfill a restitution, the spiritual beings which
form this multitude were scattered throughout the world and
spiritual valley. Now, united by my love and with the light of the
Holy Spirit illuminating their path of evolution, they will gather
along their path all who are hungry for freedom, peace, truth,
justice, love, and redemption.
54. Truly I say to you that the family of God is infinite and that
all of you belong to it spiritually; therefore, this multitude could not
limit itself to a nation or a race. The people of Israel, called the
people of God by the prophets and patriarchs of the first times, is a
symbol of the universal family. It is a people formed by beings who
were wisely chosen according to my plans, which I have used as an
instrument to bring my lessons to humanity, like a book opened
before men, a book that speaks of spiritual and material evolution,
of divine revelations, of prophecies, of human interpretations, of the
rights and wrongs of this people, of splendor and downfall, of liberty
and slavery, of light and darkness. This people will no longer have a
promised land in the world; its mission is to seek the lost and the
weak, to show them the path in the desert that will lead them to the
new Jerusalem, the spiritual city where you will dwell eternally with your Master.
55. The chosen 144,000 have the mission of devotedly guarding
the law, of encouraging those on the journey, and defending the
faith. They will be soldiers of peace, teachers of my wisdom,
physicians of all illnesses, prophets, and will offer comfort to their brethren.
56. The generations of this time have observed great events.
Without knowing it, you are going through a great battle which is
not only waged in your fields or nations in war but also in many
other areas. The true battle is in the spiritual where your eyes are
unable to perceive; it is in the human mind and heart, in men of
science and religions, and in all human institutions. That is because
a new era has arrived, an era in which the Seventh Seal must be
opened, and justice and light will triumph among all spiritual
beings. First, I will have to send enlightened spirits to the earth who
will lead humanity like a child to reach its salvation.
57. Pray and be aware of how Elijah travels spiritually
throughout the world, shedding light on darkened paths, redeeming
those who have been lost, unifying those who are stained,
awakening those who sleep in ignorance, and putting everything in
order, for this is his time. Do not fear him; love him, for he has
come as a Shepherd to lead you to the Father, to the heavenly
sheepfold that awaits you.
58. My word and all its prophecies will be fulfilled.
59. In the Second Era you nailed my hands to the timber, the
same ones that healed the sick and caressed the young and the old.
Today, I have freed my right hand but not to reject the cross on
which you have crucified me. No, my beloved children, today, I
lovingly extend it to give you my blessing.
My Peace be with you!
