Teaching 279
1. Your journey through life is filled with suffering. As you face
each hardship, you hear the voice of your conscience telling you that
you are still far from fulfilling the Divine Law of your Father. Thus,
you feel weak and discouraged. The spirit intuitively knows that
long ago it separated from the Father. It knows that it still needs to
journey a long path before returning to the Father. Thus, to
communicate with the Father, the spirit prays, knowing that prayer
brings the spirit comfort, healing, and love.
2. I bless you when you pray. The more spiritual your prayer, the
more spiritual peace you will feel. Truly, you will not be able to feel
my spiritual presence in your heart if you believe that you need to
kneel before material images of God to communicate with the
Father.
3. "Blessed are those who have believed without having seen". I
say this once again because the one who closes his eyes to the
material things of this world will be able to perceive those things
that are of the spiritual. The one who has faith in my spiritual
presence will rejoice in my presence.
4. How long will man deprive his spirit the joy of feeling my
presence through spiritual prayer? He will only be able to feel my
presence when he communicates from his spirit to my Spirit for my
light will illuminate the life of humanity so it will know the truth
and understand its errors.
5. Now is the time for prayer and meditation. Your prayer must
be free of all idolatry and fanaticism, and your meditation should be
filled with spiritual tranquility and careful analysis of my divine
word.
6. One can pray and meditate at any location or hour of the day.
My teachings never designated a specific place to pray and meditate.
Why do you look for specific places to pray when your spirit is
greater than the earth in which it dwells? Why do you limit me to
the material temples and material images of God that man has
created, knowing that I am present throughout the universe?
7. Man experiences ordeals in life because he lacks spiritual
enlightenment and does not know how to pray. This is why I say to
you that it is necessary for all of humanity to become familiar with
my teachings.
8. You are now living at the beginning of the Spiritual Era,
therefore, it should not seem strange that I often talk to you of things
that correspond to the spirit.
9. No one should be surprised with my new teachings because
the prophets in the First Era, and Christ in the Second Era, clearly
announced this era.
10. Many throughout the world are aware that this is the time
when those prophesies will be fulfilled. However, I say to you that
not everyone has understood the true meaning of those scriptures
because they have given them a material interpretation. Their
interpretation is similar to the material interpretation that the Jews
gave in the past as they awaited the coming of the Messiah and his
Kingdom.
11. When I was on earth I said, "My Kingdom is not of this
world." Also, I said, "I go to prepare a place for you, for where I am,
you may also be."
12. Disciples, in my doctrine I have spoken of the spiritual life,
a life that is superior. I also told you what path you need to follow to
achieve that superior existence. I revealed my word, not only
through the Laws that I gave you during the First Era, but also
through the prophecies given by my messengers who spoke of the
spiritual life. Why did you insist on giving a material interpretation
to those prophesies? In the past I spoke to humanity using symbols
and parables because man was not spiritually prepared to receive my
teachings in a more elevated manner. Thus, it is necessary to
correctly interpret the spiritual meaning of those symbols and
parables so that man can discover their true meaning.
13. Again I say to you, "My Kingdom is not of this world." My
Kingdom is of the spiritual because my essence is spirit. Since you
are children of that essence, you are also a part of that spiritual
kingdom. To reach that kingdom, I have given you a doctrine that
contains all that is necessary for you to overcome the trials of life
and step by step reach that spiritual life.
14. My people, you should meditate and pray so that you will
not fall into confusion because you are the seed of a new era. You
have arrived at the foot of the invisible mountain to hear the voice of
your Father.
15. Spirits are arising from a state of spiritual darkness to join
the people of God. Among this multitude are the seeds of Abraham,
Jacob, Moses, Elijah, and all those who honored the name of their
people and glorified the name of their Lord with their deeds.
16. A sweet and comforting voice has come to awaken you and
to summon you to the Kingdom of Spiritual Enlightenment and
Truth. If you choose to continue disobeying my law and staining
your spirit, my voice will then become a voice of justice.
17. I say to the one who is obedient and humble: Continue to
follow the true path because you will receive many blessings and
will be able to offer many blessings to your brethren. I say to the one
who is stubborn and disobedient: If you do not take advantage of
this period to stop sinning and living in a state of spiritual ignorance,
the time will pass without you ever knowing the Lord's revelations
during this period. You will not know what teachings and gifts he
revealed to his people.
18. Truly, the day will come when every being will be saved and
become spiritually elevated. But woe to the being who delays that
day! Woe to the being who ignores the opportunity to evolve
spiritually, preferring to dedicate himself to the insignificant things
of this world! He does not know how long he will have to wait to
receive that same opportunity again nor does he know the bitterness
of his restitution. The Father is not punishing nor being vengeful
toward that being but His justice is strict and unyielding.
19. Now that I am manifesting myself to this multitude, I ask
you: Do you perhaps know whether you have wasted previous
opportunities to fulfill your mission? Do you know how long your
spirit has awaited this new opportunity to fulfill a past mission?
What do you know about the past history of your spirit, its spiritual
destiny, debts, missions, and restitutions? You know nothing about
those things, and that is why you should not prevent your spirit from
following the path of spiritual perfection. Do not tempt your spirit to
become attached to the material things of this world. It needs to
journey through a different path with spiritual goals and ideals.
20. These are the beginning days of an era that will be filled
with enlightenment for humanity. This era has appeared amidst a
storm of chaos, confusion, suffering, and shattering events.
However, the dense clouds of that storm will disappear, and the truth
will shine in all of its majesty.
21. Today, you are living in darkness but spiritual enlightenment
will follow. The rays of spiritual enlightenment are penetrating
through the chaos, touching hearts and awakening spirits.
22. Those who have been touched and moved by that ray of
light have detained themselves along their path to ask: Who are
you? I have responded to them: I am the Light of the World and of
Eternity; I am Love and Truth. I am The One who promised you in
the Second Era that I would return, the one whom you have referred
to as the Divine Word of God.
23. They will react as did Saul on the road to Damascus,
overcoming their pride and arrogance to humbly tell me: "My Lord
and Father, forgive me, because I now understand that I was
persecuting you without being aware of it."
24. When that occurs, those individuals will then be my
followers. However, none of my new disciples have shown the same
high spiritual elevation that was achieved by Paul. Although he
initially persecuted me, later he truly demonstrated his great love for
me.
25. My new disciples are still learning to imitate my apostles
from the Second Era who fulfilled their spiritual mission on earth by
practicing great deeds of love. Those apostles followed the path
outlined by the Divine Master whom they greatly loved and for
whom they died.
26. At times I have spoken in great detail of events from the
past so that you will learn from the great examples that were set by
others. Learn to extract the spiritual essence from the examples
which is immortal and unchangeable.
27. My heart is open and ready to listen to all of your requests,
concerns, and intimate secrets.
28. I am your Father, Teacher, Friend, Doctor, and Adviser. Tell
me about your sorrows, and dry your tears. Tell me about your hopes
and desires, and allow me to be your trusted friend.
29. Pray my children because through prayer you can acquire
wisdom, health, and strength.
30. I want you to become my true disciple and to be aware of
your destiny. Thus, this will help your spirit to evolve and to avoid
making mistakes while you are on earth.
31. The one who prays is not afraid of the trials and ordeals in
life because he is always in a state of spiritual peace.
32. When all of you live in that manner, you will form a
sanctuary of love for your Father. Inside that sanctuary you will be
singing a spiritual hymn that will speak of brotherhood, harmony,
and spiritual evolution.
33. You will find that my teachings will prepare you for future
ordeals and will enable you to find solutions to them. Those who are
studying my teachings today will become my disciples, and
tomorrow they will become teachers. Thus, there is much to learn
today.
34. I will prepare your heart, your mind, and purify you before I
send you to offer testimony of my arrival during this Third Era.
35. My new teachings have not yet spread throughout the world.
Before they do, I will send indications of my new arrival to the
different nations. The spiritual world is fulfilling its mission of
awakening mankind and making man aware that spiritual life truly
exists.
36. I have manifested myself fully among this multitude who
has witnessed my manifestation during this era. Unlike those
preceding signs I sent to other nations, I have manifested myself to
this multitude through human spokesmen and have given you my
teachings in a clear manner. This was done so that these teachings
could prepare you to communicate with me from spirit to Spirit.
37. Truly, my words through the human spokesmen have given
you many profound teachings. I have come to confirm the
revelations that were given to man in the past and to give you new
revelations.
38. I have spoken of your spiritual destiny, the evolution and
restitution of the spirit, and the law of reincarnation. Also, I have
spoken of the different hardships that man had to endure in order to
learn and evolve. I have symbolized them with a book of Seven
Seals. I have informed you that this is the Third Era in which I have
manifested myself spiritually because you were ready to feel my
spiritual presence. Furthermore, I say to you that my Laws can be
summarized in two commandments: love your Father, and love one
another.
39. Meditate, and you will realize that I have not given you
signs of my new arrival but rather a great manifestation of my love.
40. The people receiving signs of my arrival are the ones who
still carry the promise of my return in their hearts. They look to the
heavens for answers and observe every event hoping that the arrival
of the Divine Master is near.
41. Oh, how little the world cares of my new manifestation, and
how numerous are those who are unaware of it. Only a few on earth
were truly prepared for my return.
42. Many are awaiting my return, yet not all perceive my true
spiritual presence during this time. Some, because of their old
beliefs, think I will return as man. Others believe that I will return in
a manner visible to the material eye. Only a few are aware of the
true nature of my return, which is spiritual.
43. Some ask and wonder what form I will take, what day and
time I will arrive, or where I will appear. Whereas others, without
thinking of material forms, times or places, say to themselves, The
Master is already amongst us and his spiritual enlightenment
surrounds us".
44. When this message reaches all individuals, it will be a gift
of joy for some, however others will reject it because it is not in
agreement with what they believe, nor was it manifested in the form
they expected.
45. My beloved people, think of all those individuals who reject
this message yet still await my return. While they suffer wondering
when I will return, you rejoice listening to my word every day.
However, when this manifestation ends, you will have a great
responsibility to awaken mankind.
46. Awaken my people, and go enlighten your brethren. That is
what you now need to do. I will present myself to everyone
spiritually upon a cloud, as previously promised, and everyone will
perceive me.
47. Why do you believe that my spiritual return has no purpose?
Remember that after I was crucified and died, I continued to
communicate spiritually with my disciples.
48. What would have happened to them if I had not
communicated spiritually with them? That communication
strengthened their faith and encouraged them to fulfill their
missions.
49. My disciples became very sad and shed many tears after my
departure. Though they prayed frequently, they were overcome by
feelings of guilt and fear. They remembered that one disciple sold
me, another denied me, and that many of them abandoned me at the
hour of my death.
50. How could they be disciples of the Divine Master, who was
truly perfect? How would they have the strength and courage to
confront their brethren who had so many diverse customs and
beliefs?
51. It was then that my Spirit presented itself among them to
relieve their pain, to strengthen their faith, and to fill their hearts
with my doctrine of love.
52. Although I appeared human to my disciples, my presence
was spiritual. Behold what great influence those manifestations had
among my disciples.
53. Truly, I tell you that today I have come again to humanize
my Spirit as I did in the past, but man is now more spiritually
evolved. Thus, everyone is able to feel my presence, although they
feel it in a subtle and intangible manner. There is no need for you to
perceive me with your physical eyes to verify that the Divine Master
is among you.
54. The spirit has superior senses that see, feel, and comprehend
spiritual things. It is through those senses that I want you to perceive
my presence.
55. Once you are no longer able to listen to this word, you will
feel helpless and sad. You will experience remorse because of your
lack of love. It is then when you will hear me say deep within your
heart: "I am with you. Continue your journey and do not be afraid
for you are never alone."
56. Who, other than I, inspired the disciples in the Second Era
as they continued their journey on earth without the Divine Master?
Do you not admire what each disciple was able to accomplish? I say
to you that those disciples had weaknesses as do all human beings,
but they developed great faith and love for their brethren. They did
not fear being left on earth as sheep among wolves, continually
being persecuted and ridiculed by others.
57. They had the power to perform miracles and knew how to
use that gift to convert their brethren to the truth.
58. Blessed were those who heard what Jesus had said through
the lips of my apostles, because they presented my doctrine in a true
and pure manner. That is why those individuals, who heard my
apostles speak, felt in their spirits the presence of the Lord. They
experienced a sensation never felt before, a sensation of power,
wisdom, and divine greatness.
59. Those apostles were a worthy example. They were poor and
humble fishermen from Galilee who were transformed into spiritual
fishermen because of their great love for their brethren. They were
able to spiritually enlighten their brethren and cause cities and
empires to change with the teachings that they had learned from
Jesus. Through their great determination and sacrifice, they were
able to convert cities and empires to the doctrine of Jesus and to
establish spiritual peace on earth. The kings of earth, as well as
beggars, experienced that peace during that period of true
Christianity.
60. That period of spiritual peace among mankind was only
temporary. I, who know all things, announced and promised that I
would return because I knew that humanity would need me once
again.
61. I knew that with each passing generation man would falsify
my doctrine, change my Law, and distort the truth. I knew that man
would forget my promise that I would return and cease to perceive
one another as brethren, killing each other with cruel, cowardly, and
perverse weapons.
62. This is the period that I promised to return. I am with you
now. Do not judge the manner in which I chose to manifest myself,
for it is not the world that should judge me but rather I that should
judge humanity. This is the period of that judgement.
63. I have come to establish a kingdom in the heart of humanity.
It is a spiritual kingdom, not a material kingdom as many had
expected. The strength of that kingdom will originate from love and
justice and not from the material powers of earth.
64. I observe that some individuals are surprised listening to me
speak in this manner, and I ask them: Why do you always picture me
dressed in silk clothes, jewels, and gold? Why do you want my
Kingdom to be from this material world when I have told you that it
is not.
65. I am bringing you new teachings so that you will learn to
live a life full of spirituality. That is the true life destined by God for
mankind.
66. I have told you that "spirituality" does not mean
superstitious beliefs, nor religious fanaticism or supernatural
practices. Spirituality means harmony between the material body
and the spirit, obedience to the divine and the human laws,
simplicity and purity in one's life, complete and deep faith in the
Father, and the joy and willingness to serve God by loving your
brethren. Those are the ideals of spiritual and moral perfection.
67. As I present to you the purity of my doctrine, you feel that
your sins are more evident. Therefore, my disciples, I am ready to
forgive all of your faults if you are now prepared to listen to the
voice of your conscience and to correct your errors. You will need to
make amends for the time you have lost and to demonstrate the
purity of my Doctrine through your deeds of love and charity.
68. A multitude of people that is spiritually elevated and that
truly follows my divine laws needs to arise on earth. They will be
able to prove to humanity that it is not impossible to achieve
spirituality. They will teach humanity that a spiritual rebirth of the
flesh is not a sacrifice and that one does not need to renounce his
life on earth to spiritually serve God.
69. You can teach my doctrine of love to the world because of
the experience you have attained on your long journey of spiritual
evolution.
70. To learn about spirituality, you have traveled many paths. In
the past, you practiced idolatry and needed material symbols
because you were unable to feel my presence. You felt you needed
ceremonies to honor me. But when you reached a crossroad in your
life and did not know which path to follow, you began to listen to
the voice of the Divine Master, who came once again to teach you
the true path.
71. Do you not believe that all of your past experiences will
help you to understand as well as to encourage your brethren?
72. I have already told you that the struggle will be difficult
because each one believes that his religion is perfect, as well as the
manner in which he worships God. However, I say to you that if a
man's religion and worship were perfect, there would have been no
reason for me to manifest myself during this era.
73. I have brought you a doctrine that is truly spiritual because I
observe that your worship is filled with idolatry. I also observe that
your fanaticism has caused you to be ignorant and full of negative
emotions.
74. I hold the sword of light and love in my right hand, for I am
the Warrior and King who has come to destroy all suffering,
deception, and evil. When the battle has ended and man learns to
pray and live in harmony, his spirit will discover my presence of
infinite light and eternal peace. I will then tell you, "This is my
Kingdom and I am your King. I created you and I exist so that I may
reign".
75. Behold how my conquests differ from those of man. To
reign in your hearts, I became man and lived amongst you rather
than use force or fear. I not only kissed and washed your feet, but I
also became your victim.
76. I gave myself to you. Now, I tell you, that in the end, you
will surrender yourselves to me.
My Peace be with you!
