Teaching 78:
1. The clarity and simplicity of My teaching has inspired in you
encouragement to take the first steps in the Third Era and you have
now begun to stumble over My Divine phrases. You begin to realize
that it is a pleasure for the heart to remove the pain of a fellowman
and give him love and charity.
2. Do not call Me unjust if for an instant the suffering and
ordeals hover over you; you should know that they strengthen the
spirit and that besides, these people have been an instrument of My
will throughout the eras to present to Mankind examples through
them. Be strong so that in your vicissitudes you can give proof of
love and obedience in the face of My will.
3. Analyze and understand all the lessons I am giving you and
do not make bad use of them because you will return with your
garments tattered and your heart filled with bitterness like the
prodigal son of the parable. Make from your heart a granary and
store the Divine seed there. When the time comes I shall make a
calling to Mankind, inviting them to come to this nation, which will
open its doors to the outsiders, to those travelers who seek peace,
light and health. And the doors of your heart shall open like those of
the Second Jerusalem, the spiritual city whiter than the fields of
snow, whose doors are opened since eternity, waiting for the
children of the Father.
4. Great is the spiritual mission of the inhabitants of this nation;
therefore, prepare your heart in order to give lodging to every
brother who approaches you, regardless of race, color or condition.
5. Your spirit still has not been able to understand all the
magnitude of the revelation that he has received during this period,
but your heart has a presentiment that something great has
descended among you. Your world of yesterday has disappeared
since you listened to My Word, because your egotism was touched
by it. That world was small because it was limited to your dear ones,
to what you possess on Earth and to the imperfect concept that you
have of what the Law of God is. Now your horizon has extended
toward the infinite, and there you foresee an unknown world that
you will get to conquer through your spiritual elevation. Now you
see in each human being a brother and in each man a son of My
Divinity. Today you see the life as a step in the infinite ladder of
your elevation toward the Creator. Now you know that those who
suffer in this valley of tears have not been forgotten by God and that
all receive the light of His love.
6. Disciples, remain in the peacefulness that I give you. Do not
allow the world with its temptations to snatch it away from you,
because you will have to pray for your fellowmen and, how will you
be able to think about them when peace does not exist in your heart?
Overcome the obstacles in your existence and do not consider them
as invincible. The strength within man is great, what you have
lacked is faith. Persevere in faith, in your good deeds, and with them
you will move mountains from their place.
7. Do not consider your life to be sterile believing that you have
not carried out great deeds. If it is unsoiled, you must have done
something righteous because I have said to you, that through the
first ones, the last ones will recognize Me. Accept that mission with
pleasure.
8. I receive complaints from some hearts when they explain to
Me that among their dear ones are the unbelievers who have twisted
the pathway. They tell Me that they have spoken much to them, and
have achieved nothing. I say that you must learn to speak with
deeds, and also through silence, that you must be intuitive with
reason in order not to be untimely. If you prepare yourselves, if you
know how to persevere, your steady look will become penetrating
and you shall not let go that opportune moment when you must give
that heart the last touch with your chisel. Your triumph will show
that those whom you considered strong in their stubbornness, in
reality were weak. Put into practice My Divine advice, and soon you
will give testimony of My truth. I will grant you this charity because
I have more to give than what you ask of Me.
9. Among your people are those who have greatly torn apart My
Work with their tongue and have made your heart bleed. I shall not
avenge you because My justice is perfect; however I will soon come
to touch them, for it is the time when "every eye shall see Me".
10. Ask yourselves: Would you be here listening to Me if
suffering had not touched you? There were some who blasphemed,
complained and denied Me; but the pain was stronger than them and
it humbled them; then they arrived before the presence of My
manifestation and wept with repentance. Now they are those who
bless that pain that made them come to Me.
11. It is up to you to pray for those who now deny Me. Make
them understand that I have come in search of your spirit because I
behold him thirsty and hungry for My Divine essence. I do not seek
your physical body, because it has on Earth all that it needs.
12. I must tell you that you should not believe that it is
indispensable for the spirit to have a human body and life on Earth
in order to evolve; however the lessons that he receives in this world
are certainly of great benefit toward his perfection.
13. The flesh helps the spirit in his evolution, in his experiences,
in his expiation and in his struggles; this is the mission that
corresponds to him and you can confirm it with this manifestation of
My Divinity through man whose faculty I have come to avail
Myself, utilizing him as an instrument to transmit My message.
Understand that not only the spirit is destined for the spiritual even
what is most insignificant within the material has been created for
spiritual objectives.
14. I have come to give a reminder and a calling to your spirit so
that by overcoming the influence of the material, which has
dominated him, he can make his light reach the heart and mind
utilizing his gift of intuition.
15. This light signifies for your spirit the path towards his
freedom! This Doctrine comes to offer him the means to elevate
himself above the human existence and to be the guide for all his
works, lord over his feelings and not a slave of lower passions or a
victim of weaknesses and miseries.
16. When the spirit allows himself to be dominated by the
influence of what ever surrounds him on Earth he comes to identify
himself to such an extent with his physical body that he forgets his
true nature; he withdraws from the spiritual life, to the point of
becoming strange to him, and that is why when his body dies, he has
to become perturbed or confused.
17. How easily the body dies! But how difficult it is for the
spirit who was unable to prepare himself and be liberated from his
confusion.
18. While some in their confusion remain close to their dead
body, others, conserving in their spirit the impressions of their
physical body, continue believing to be humans without being able
to elevate themselves toward the mansion that belongs to them and
remain bound to those whom they loved in the world.
19. There is no more bitter cup on Earth nor a more intense pain
than that of confused spirits. Their setbacks, their not being able to
understand what happens around them, their remorse, their nostalgia
of what they left behind, their solitude, the silence and the
helplessness to elevate themselves, constitute the fire where they
will be purified until they attain the light.
20. Do you believe it would be inexact if I say to you that
millions of spirits depart in a state of confusion from this world? It
is the result of the ignorance of men, due to their lack of meditation
and prayer.
21. My Doctrine of the Second Era revealed to men the spiritual
life, but instead of analyzing My lessons and fulfilling My precepts,
they created religions around My Doctrine, confining themselves to
the compliance of rituals and material ceremonies, which did not
enlighten their spirit more, but did withdraw them from the pathway
of their fulfillment.
22. Among you are those who ask Me if upon leaving this
existence they will fall into darkness; to this I answer that if they did
not analyze My Word or put it into practice, it would be of no use to
have been among these multitudes listening to My Doctrine of light.
23. What the spirit sows, will be what he will reap; that is the
Law and justice.
24. I, your Savior, have pointed out to you in all Eras the right
path, and I have revealed the means to avoid pain, confusion and
darkness.
25. Now I come once again among you in fulfillment of that
mission, making light along your uncertain paths, awakening you
from your lethargy, reminding your spirit that a new mansion awaits
him which he has to reach prepared to be able to inhabit and enjoy it
forever.
26. I come to you to awaken and ask you: Who among you is a
disciple by his own free will? No one; it is I who has called you. To
listen to My Word again you have had to be on Earth various times.
Between one incarnation and another I have granted you a truce for
meditation and preparation toward a new life.
27. The spirit, when he is within the body, shares with its fatigue
and it is necessary for him to have a rest after a struggle, as well as a
meditation in order to form a plan that he must follow before
undertaking a new battle. Without those truces or stops along your
pathway, you would progress very little along your way. However, it
is necessary for a clean and pure Doctrine to teach you these lessons
with full clarity, so that your heart convinced by this truth will have
some knowledge of the reason why many of the phenomenon and
events which, without My revelation you would never manage to
understand. Within My charity there is endless time, life, the destiny
of all; nothing escapes My power.
28. First you knew Me as an inexorable Father in His justice
regarding your faults; that Father became before you into the most
gentle and loving of Masters. Nevertheless, you were unable to
interpret His teachings properly because you believed that He
punished with eternal fire those who did not love Him. Now I have
come to show you that the Father does not reject His children only
because they do not love Him. Now I come to demonstrate to you
that the Divine love does not have any limitations and that that love
and that justice are manifested through the Law of reincarnation that
I have come to clarify to you. Now you will understand that by
means of that Divine Law there is not a fault, however grave it may
be, which merits an eternal punishment for the spirit; but in order to
come to Me, first you have to correct that fault.
29. What would be achieved on your part if I truly gave you as a
punishment eternal fire? You would always blaspheme eternally
against a God whom you would judge as unjust, cruel and vengeful.
30. My obligation as a Father is to give you at every step
occasion to perfect yourselves, teaching you the way through perfect
lessons. If I who has taught you to forgive and love your enemies
and have told you: Do unto your brethren what you have seen that I
have done to you, would I be giving you an example of it when you
saw that I punished with an eternal punishment those who did not
love Me? Do you believe that I do not have the power to make
Myself loved by those who have hated Me? These are the ones to
whom I give, not an eternal punishment, but a sufficient time so that
from them will sprout forth the light, regeneration and finally love.
In like manner that one waits for the soil to become fertile so that in
it the seed will germinate. Thus I expect for you to comply with My
precept which tells you: "Love one another".
31. Who is able to recognize your spirit in this world? Not the
ministers of religions, because if they do not know about
themselves, the less they would know about others. Your parents
with all their intuition are barely able to cross the threshold of the
heart. Mankind knows little, very little about the spirit, because they
have surrounded this light with mystery; but the mystery does not
exist, only the ignorance. Then who will in the future guide the spirit
of Mankind along enlightened paths? Who will be able to save it
from great confusions? Only My Doctrine, this Doctrine that I shall
record within your spirit. From it will sprout forth a light that will
show you the pathway, a voice that will guide you; but be aware that
he who does not heed that voice that is lovingly felt within his heart
is denying the beginning of his creation, because in the instant of his
being born from My Spirit I kindled in him that Divine spark which
is the conscience, so that it will repeat to him throughout his
existence, that he is My son.
32. Verily I say to you that sin and confusion in the spirit is
fleeting in the face of eternity therefore the purification and
judgment cannot be eternal.
33. Now is the time that you will become aware of what you
have done with your spirit and the wealth of teaching that you have
not taken advantage of it. The voice of your conscience is clearer
and stronger. It speaks to you of the past, the present and prepares
you for the future. Learn to recognize that voice, because from there
I speak to you, and when you listen, have faith in it; Woe betide to
you if you doubt! That voice will always guide you toward
righteousness, but if you hear a voice guiding you toward evil, that
is not from your conscience. It is the voice of your passions that
inspire in you an influence of materialism.
34. Tomorrow people will fight you for believing in this
Doctrine, because in the same way you hurry and prepare yourselves
to analyze this word, in like manner men also prepare themselves to
contend against you. They will perform miracles in knowledge and
human power to demonstrate to you that they possess the truth.
Without display, you will perform spiritual miracles with your deeds
of love toward your brethren.
35. Elijah, the forerunner, again announces the spiritual
presence of the Father; the arrival of the Spirit of Truth who clarifies
and reveals the mystery of reincarnation.
36. I give you this lesson, because the world will besiege you
and will not allow you a way out of the East nor from the West, nor
from the North nor the South. Then you will make use of the power
I have given you to free yourselves from your oppressors.
37. Do not fear, because you are not the only ones in the world
who have sought the freedom of the spirit. At this time men are
arising in search of the light, the truth and the elevation of the spirit.
38. Remember Elijah who gave testimony of the true God
during the First Era. Listen:
39. The people of Israel fell into idolatry and they worshiped a
pagan god. Elijah, in order to convince them of their mistake and
their impiety, said to the prophets of the idol in the presence of the
people congregated on Mount Carmel, "Prepare a holocaust with
wood and upon it place a sacrifice. I will also prepare another
holocaust. Invoke the names of your gods and I shall invoke the
name of My Lord and God, and he who responds with fire to
consume the sacrifice will be recognized as the true God.
40. The idol remained deaf to the pleas of their priests. Elijah
said to them: "Shout louder so that your god can hear you, so that he
might awaken; perhaps he might be asleep." When the idolaters
considered their efforts as useless, the prophet devoted himself to
prayer imploring His Father to manifest Himself as the living and
true God. Elijah had barely finished pronouncing his prayer, when a
ray of lightning fell from the heavens and consumed the sacrifice of
the holocaust.
41. The people recognized the deception of the prophets of
Baal, and at the same time recognized that Jehovah, the God of
Elijah, was the only and true God.
42. That same Elijah of that era promised in those times, is once
again among you. The Divine Master made that promise during the
Second Era and Elijah has arrived at the opportune moment.
43. Allow Elijah to be within each one of you, above all when
you are being subjected to an ordeal; but then you must remember
that Elijah is all love, faith and humility, so that you may imitate
him and then the prophecy will emerge from you.
44. Many forms of idolatry exist in the present era. The science,
the war, the gold, religious fanaticism and pleasures, are some of
many deities that men kneel before them to pay homage.
45. Be nourished by My Word so that you may be strong.
Behold that you will have to hear many words contrary to what I
have taught you and none of them should confuse nor make you
doubt.
46. The Book is opened, read from it, because if your Father is a
Book of wisdom you too can also be a book of teaching and
experience for your brethren.
47. The life that surrounds you is one of many pages of the
Divine Book; that is why many times I have said to you: Learn the
daily lessons that life offers you. During this period you will have to
be the good counselors who will speak with words and also with
deeds. Would you be able to speak of regeneration if your brethren
would surprise you in inconvenient places? Would you be able to
teach them to live in peace if they would discover that in your home
harmony does not exist?
48. I behold that many hearts of these people still slumber
without wanting to understand that the day draws near when I shall
cease to give you My lessons by this means, and when they see that
the Book has been closed they will weep their incomprehension, but
then it will be too late.
49. Fortunate are those who prepare themselves and are
disposed to obey the will of their Master, because when the new
phase begins, they will know how to communicate with Me by
means of their thoughts and they will exclaim: Father, your book
continues to be open!
50. I have compared My Word with the seed of wheat; I have
sowed it with infinite love within your heart. The heart is the soil
where it begins to germinate because it is endowed with sensitivity,
but its impressions are transmitted to the spirit who is the one who
truly safeguards My Word. Therefore, even if the heart is forgetful of
the Father or stops beating for existence, that seed will remain
safeguarded within the spirit and the moment will come when it will
germinate. That moment can be either near or distant, according to
the awakening of the spirit to the love of the Creator; but since the
spiritual evolution pertains to eternity, there is no impatience in the
Father. You are the ones who, as human beings or as spirits, should
hasten your footsteps, in order to prevent the painful experiences by
means of the practice of righteousness.
51. The Book of the Divine wisdom, sealed with Seven Seals,
was opened by the Lamb; it was the love of the Divine Master
toward men which allowed the mysteries of His Arcanum to be
revealed to them. The Sixth Seal manifests its contents during this
period and it speaks of profound teachings; it allows you to behold
the future of your world and it opens the way toward spiritual
eternity.
52. I have taught you that through the prayer wisdom will be
acquired, but that is no reason that I want for you to prolong your
prayers. I have asked you for a prayer of five minutes and by that I
mean to say for you to pray briefly so that during those moments
you will truly surrender yourselves to your Father and the rest of
your time you can dedicate it to your spiritual and material duties
toward your brethren.
53. Sow with love, charity and good deeds the pathway of your
existence and when you leave the flesh to free your spirit from it,
instead of descending into the valleys of expiation, he will elevate
himself toward those mansions where he will gather among spirits
of light all the fruits of his sowing. If you do not conduct yourselves
in that manner, you will reap suffering along your way and for that
you cannot blame Me, since I, having created everything around
you, did not create suffering; it is your creation, it is the result of
your imperfections. If I permit that you endure suffering it is
because I know that by recognizing the result of your deeds you will
be able to perfect yourselves because by its fruit you will recognize
the tree.
54. Disciples: form an album with My Word with which you
will bring joy to your spirit and tomorrow convey to your brethren
this testimony and this pleasure. My Word will reach the confines of
the world and it will touch all spirits transforming the life of men.
My Word will realize the miracle for peace to return to this Earth.
55. If the elements turn hostile and severe, it is because no
harmony exists between them and men. When Mankind lives in
accordance with the obedience to My laws by which all other
creatures live, they will recognize in this planet the image of the
eternal life, that paradise that will accommodate in its bosom those
who will purify and elevate themselves through the path of love that
Christ points out at every step.
56. Now the people of Israel are re-arising on Earth; today they
still live in bondage, but My light is liberating them. Before them
the pathway and the Divine promise appear, inviting them to put on
their sandals, pick up their staff to pray before Jehovah, and confine
themselves in the wilderness in search of the Divine Voice, the Law
of God and His miracles.
57. Their awakening has already begun; you have heard the
voice of Elijah, the new Liberator; he has brought you to the side of
the Mount of the new Zion that during this Third Era arises before
your spirit, so that you may listen to the living voice of the Lord
through a human faculty.
58. Before the Divine voice you have remained in ecstasy
listening to it, but it has announced to you that its manifestation will
be brief, in order for you to arise and go along in your journey that
you have already begun, which will guide your spirit toward the
gateways of the Promised Land.
59. In other parts of the world the people are awakening because
Elijah is knocking upon their doors.
60. I have named you Israel because you will gather the essence
of the revelations of the Third Era, because you shall be the ones
who will give My Word its spiritual and just interpretation and
because the history of those people will be repeated in you in their
ordeals, struggles and conflicts in order to reach the Promised Land
and finally their triumph, which was a conquest and possession of an
ideal.
61. You must know that you are Israel, keep in mind that you
are the people of God; be possessors of that fact so that you may be
stronger in the long journey, but do not proclaim that you are sons of
Israel because you will not be understood, rather they will mock at
your words. Who shall be those who will discover that the new
Israel is so because of its spirit?
62. Safeguard this knowledge revealed by your Father within
your heart; but when the scrutinizers and the foolish ones come
before you and ask: Are you the people of Israel? Answer them as I
did to the Pharisees and the foolish; when they asked Me if I was the
Son of God I answered them, "You have said so."
63. After I have said this I want you to know that these people
who have barely begun to congregate, will be inviting other people
along their way, people to unite with them, inviting them with
examples more than with words. They shall be cleaning the road of
thistles in order for the last ones to find the pathway prepared
because I make this calling to all the peoples and nations of the
world because the new people of Israel will include men of all races,
classes and creeds.
64. Those who believe that the true people of Israel were those
of the First Era will be mistaken; those people were only an image
of what the true people of God would be in the course of time when
all men will be united, loving their Father in their own brethren.
Thus the law of the First Era stated: "Love thy God with all your
heart and spirit and love thy fellowmen as thyself". Likewise Christ
said it during the Second Era, teaching Mankind a new
commandment: "Love one another". To those who comply with the
maximum precepts, Elijah has announced to them that during this
period they shall see the Father in all His splendor.
65. Each one will be entrusted with a mission and his gifts will
be revealed to him so that he will have within him the means to sow
righteousness and to cast the light. During that period a mission was
also entrusted to each tribe and their gifts were revealed to them so
that all of them as a whole would offer the Father a fruit of
submission, harmony and faith.
66. Beloved people: I am providing you with all that you will
need for the journey. Your knapsack will be filled with My blessings
and you shall not be fearful that they will end; however, if a shortage
should occur to test your faith do not forget that Israel, during the
First Era, learned from Moses that he who puts his trust in the
Father, will never perish.
67. Be watchful and pray, Israel, 0! People who are designated
to carry throughout the world the banner of spirituality! Learn to
carry the Tabernacle within your heart, the Ark within your spirit
and the Law within your conscience.
68. Go forth along the pathway announcing to your brethren that
the hour of freedom has arrived and that the voice which is heard in
the silence of the night is the voice of Elijah, who goes forth from
one end to the other in the world, awakening all spirits who slumber.
Do not fear the ridicule and mockery of your brethren; but if the
world hates you, be reminded that they hated Me before they did
you.
My Peace be with you!
