Teaching 277
1. I perceive this multitude as the forerunners of a caravan who
has followed me throughout the eras. You are the wise nation of
spiritual Israel, with the fighting spirit of Judah, preparing and
leading the way for others to follow. As I prepare you to engage in
the final battle, I will be guiding your steps and helping you to fulfill
your mission.
2. During this period I have sent you to earth as humanity
confronts its greatest ordeals. Man will continue to pursue his
material ambitions for a while longer until he becomes weary from
experiencing so much pain and suffering. His conscience will make
him aware that his life is nonproductive and fruitless and guide him
to me through the path of spirituality. When the spirit awakens and
carefully analyzes the path it has taken in the past, it will seek the
true path. That path will guide it back to the basic principles
established by God. The first and last law that God gave to man was
to love one another and to practice deeds of virtue. Love is a
fountain of perfection.
3. I want you to await the fulfillment of my word and to always
be in spiritual contact with me and with the spiritual world. Thus,
you will never feel that you are distant from me. I will unite all
spirits from the different worlds throughout the universe so that in
unity they will acquire strength to fulfill their mission.
4. To fulfill your mission you do not need to neglect your
earthly responsibilities or separate yourself from the world. I ask
you to attend only to those physical needs that are essential so that
your spirit will remain free and become fully aware of its great
destiny within my work.
5. I will give you those things that are necessary for your human
life on earth. I will not ask you to neglect your material
responsibilities. On the contrary, my word will teach you how to
fulfill all of your responsibilities because every responsibility forms
a part of your mission. You are living during a period of struggle,
activity, and great achievement and it is necessary for your spirit to
engage in all three. You need to develop your spiritual gifts so that
you can become transformed as my disciples were in the Second
Era. They imitated the Divine Master and lived in unity.
6. You will be unable to take my teaching to humanity unless
you truly are spiritually prepared, because humanity is more
spiritually evolved than in the past. Offer peace to your brethren and
teach them spirituality. If they observe that you live in harmony and
practice brotherhood with your brethren, they will listen to your
words of inspiration and spiritual wisdom.
7. It you are going to preach, teaching peace, you need to lead a
peaceful life; if you are going to speak of love, you need to truly feel
love for your brethren before you can truly teach it. Do not reject the
differing beliefs of your brethren. As you carefully analyze their
beliefs, accept only those things from their doctrines that you know
are true as revealed in my teachings of love. Although you will meet
some individuals who worship God in a fanatical and material
manner, you will patiently help them acquire a new knowledge of
God. You will reveal to them that their spirits can acquire great
spiritual knowledge if they carefully analyze my teachings. You will
speak to them of my Universal Spirit, of the immortality of the
spirit, and how the spirit becomes more spiritually evolved. You will
teach them how to pray, how to communicate with God from spirit
to Spirit, and will guide them to true spiritual knowledge. I entrust
you with that work, a work of love and patience.
8. Take care of your spirit, which is my child. Accept my new
revelations because they offer you much knowledge and will help
you to comprehend all those things that you were unable to
comprehend from my previous teachings. Today, I am reminding
you of the teachings that I gave you in the past. I am combining all
of the teachings that I have given you throughout the eras, thus
offering you another testimony of your Father.
9. Use the spiritual strength that I have given to you to triumph
over all ordeals and temptations. Be patient when you are suffering
so that you will be able to follow my path and attain salvation.
10. During this Third Era I want your worship to be as pure and
perfect as the fragrance of flowers.
11. Once man develops faith and succeeds in constructing a
temple within his spirit and learns to respect God, the wars on earth
will cease. Thus, this valley of tears and suffering will become a
land of peace, and the Kingdom of Heaven will descend upon
mankind.
12. Allow me to speak to you thus, although you believe it is
impossible. I know everything that will occur on earth in the future,
whereas humans on earth do not know.
13. If you are not aware of what is presently occurring on earth,
how would you be able to foretell the future or understand my
prophecies?
14. My messengers are now arriving on earth to help mankind
become spiritually enlightened. They have come to earth to defend
the truth with deeds of true love. Does anyone know who they are?
Is anyone aware that there are children on earth today who will
become my future apostles and prophets?
15. It is necessary that this nation of people, which has received
my present revelations, arise to offer testimony of me and help
mankind to awaken spiritually. Thus, man will be able to perceive
the spiritual manifestations and signs that will occur during this
period.
16. You must take care of this seed of spiritual knowledge that
you possess. I want you and your children to take these teachings to
the other nations on earth. Use whatever means are convenient to
spread my message throughout the world, as long as your
conscience informs you that you are following the true path.
17. Those of you who are presently listening to me are not the
only ones with this mission. You will fulfill a part of that mission,
while others who will come after you will continue that same
mission.
18. You need to continue to practice this doctrine of love from
generation to generation so that man can comprehend its pureness
and spirituality and maintain its truth.
19. You still do not know the true meaning and essence of my
Doctrine. Thus, you continue to disrespect it with your materialistic
practices that lack true spirituality. When your mind and spirit
awaken to recognize the truth, you will no longer taint my doctrine
with anything that is impure.
20. It is your mission to take this doctrine to your brethren
throughout the world. Your spirit was assigned that mission before it
came to earth.
21. Although your material mind is unaware of this, your spirit
is aware of its mission to join a multitude of people as witnesses to
the Lord's new manifestation to the world.
22. Blessed are those who have retained and remembered the
mandate and promise of the Divine Master in their spirit because
they are becoming spiritually enlightened. They are fulfilling the
mission that was assigned to them. When they have fulfilled it,
joyfully they will see others come after them to continue the work.
Those who arrive later will observe with satisfaction that the path is
pure and spiritually prepared, and that the sowing of the fields has
begun.
23. Those of you who were my first workers during this period
had to struggle greatly because none of your brethren had prepared
your path. Nevertheless, you have managed to take my message to
humanity. Thus, be aware that those workers who will arrive after
you will be expected to offer my message to the world with greater
enlightenment and clarity because their path was prepared.
24. Since the First Era when the prophets announced the arrival
of the Messiah, they said that all nations would receive his
blessings. Now I say to you that during this Third Era all nations
will once again receive my blessings because I will communicate
with everyone from Spirit to spirit.
25. Blessed is the one who seeks to purify himself through
prayer, repentance, and good deeds, because he is truly cleansing his
stains. He will have purified his spirit when he presents himself
before me. Blessed is the one who is able to comprehend this truth,
because he will find the true path to follow and will become
spiritually enlightened. In the Second Era I came to teach mankind
to cease the shedding of blood and to discontinue the practice of
sacrificing innocent victims on the altar of Jehovah. Instead, I taught
man to sacrifice his own selfish desires as an offering to God. Today,
I have come to inform you to stop practicing so many meaningless
rituals. You have chosen to practice those rituals instead of truly
practicing my doctrine of love.
26. When you listen to my teachings, it surprises you that you
are able to comprehend and practice what previously you thought
impossible. It is because your spirit is now slowly traveling an
unfamiliar path. As you become spiritually enlightened by my
teachings, you will begin to discontinue materialistic forms of
worship and rituals which you truly believed you needed to
practiced.
27. The material symbols that you used to worship God are also
beginning to disappear now that you are comprehending true
spiritual worship. Today your worship is simple, pure, practical, and
spiritual.
28. I have not yet revealed many things which you need to
know, therefore, I tell you not to be satisfied with what you have
attained and received. As your spirit continues to progress along its
spiritual path, I will give it new revelations. I have come to teach
you a new way to practice my Law and to tell you to analyze the
spiritual and divine things that I am revealing to you. I do not want
you to analyze me as the scientists and theologians have done.
Rather, you will elevate yourself through prayer in a humble,
respectful, and loving manner, as I reveal to you those things that
you need to know. Whoever prays in this manner to the Lord will be
like a young disciple who is thirsty for spiritual enlightenment and
knowledge, and I will allow him to feel my presence and caress as I
reveal those things that he needs to know. I will spiritually enlighten
him, eliminate his doubts, and provide answers to many mysteries.
Thus, after praying, his spirit will be able to reveal to the physical
body those things that it learned from the Divine Master.
29. Those who arrive before my presence, without humility and
respect, to learn about spiritual and divine things will become
confused and will fail to learn anything. The doors to spiritual divine
wisdom are only open to those who are humble and are closed to
those who are not. Since man still has many things to learn about
life, he has not yet become my disciple on earth.
30. I want your heart and spirit to be humble so that when you
seek enlightenment along the spiritual path, you will find answers to
all of your questions. Those who prepare themselves will not weep
nor sigh once my manifestation comes to an end. Caravans of
foreigners will arrive to ask you about what you saw and heard
during my manifestation. You will offer a true testimony of what I
taught you and will explain all things that they consider mysterious.
They will be amazed at how clearly you are able to explain all
mysteries and will perceive you as spiritually enlightened. They will
tell you that you are fortunate to have heard the Divine Master speak
although it was through human spokesmen.
31. Once again I have come to give man my teachings and to
remind him that he is not alone. I want him to listen to the voice of
his conscience and to become aware that great divine wonders await
his spirit when he departs from this life.
32. I have spoken with mankind about these wonders. Those,
who know how to pray and are able to perceive spiritual visions,
will verify these wonders. Scientists, who study the mysteries of
nature, will also offer testimony of the wonders they have found.
The more spiritual and scientific knowledge that man seeks, the
more he will discover. However, when will man become inspired to
study the essence of spiritual love? As long as he neglects to do so,
he will not be fulfilling his mission in life. The elements of nature
will continue to unleash themselves to awaken man from his lack of
compassion, for man is motivated by hatred, ambition, materialism,
and pride in his scientific pursuits.
33. During this period, scientists demonstrate a true lack of
compassion as evidenced by their deeds, for they are destroying
nations, cities, and killing their brethren by the millions. They are
converting men into slaves and bringing great turmoil to life on
earth. They are unaware of the gravity of their deeds. That is why I
say that they lack compassion and true understanding.
34. Only my mercy can help humanity, and that is why I have
come to touch the heart of man and to awaken his spirit. Thus, he
will be able to listen to the voice of his conscience which will make
him aware of all the wrong he has done, and at the same time
inspiring him to correct his mistakes.
35. Man needs to understand that all beings will ascend to me,
not in material bodies, as they would like, but spiritually. Thus man
will strive to perform deeds that will not only benefit mankind but
also himself.
36. Many beings on earth have become very evil, vain, and
arrogant! Although they have given themselves material crowns,
their spirits are in a state of misery and spiritual darkness! There is a
great difference between my truth and what man believes is the
truth.
37. My people, you cry as you listen to my word. When will
humanity cry in that same manner as it listens to my revelation? I
forgive everyone. This is a moment of grace. I shed my infinite light
upon all worlds and upon all of my children.
38. This is the Era of Light. Thus, the divine enlightenment
from the Holy Spirit will fully illuminate the innermost parts of the
human heart and spirit.
39. Man will soon know why he is born on earth, as well as the
purpose, mission, and meaning of life on earth. Also, he will
comprehend the true meaning of death. Humanity will soon leave
behind its theories and external forms of worship and will begin
living in the true manner that God wants it to live. Man will dedicate
himself to living a righteous life on earth and will worship me
through his deeds of love and virtue. When the time arrives for him
to depart from this earth, he will know that his spirit will enter into a
superior life. Thus, when the eyes of the physical body are closed for
the last time, man will no longer refer to it as death.
40. Man will begin to understand the truth when he realizes that
the separation of a spirit from its material body is no more than a
transition step. That separation is necessary so that the spirit can
continue to progress and dwell in other mansions that are more
evolved.
41. The Creator placed man on earth, a place where nature is
constantly evolving toward perfection. Although man is surrounded
by nature, he does not evolve in harmony with it. He does not seek
to better himself morally nor does he seek to perfect his spirit which
is the essence and the reason for his existence.
42. Humanity has evolved and progressed scientifically but has
never been interested in evolving spiritually. Although his spirit is
the most noble and elevated thing that exists within him, man's
personal earthly ambitions, desires, and worries are his only
concerns. Man has sought material knowledge from earth, along
with material rewards, honors, power, and self gratification. He has
sought to establish his heaven on earth. That is why I tell you that
while nature is continually evolving to achieve perfection, man has
failed to evolve and progress. That is why he suffers, stumbles, and
experiences great ordeals along his path. Man does not realize that
as he becomes more spiritually evolved and begins to live in
harmony with all things, he can become master of all earthly things,
a mandate that God gave to man at the beginning of time. Instead,
man has preferred to rule on earth guided by his low passions, greed,
arrogance, and hatred. Consequently, he has converted himself into
a servant and a slave of earthly ambitions, becoming a victim of the
elements that surround him.
43. Make an effort to truly know yourself. Search within the
depths of your being to discover your essence, and I assure you that
you will feel illuminated upon discovering that you are foremost a
spiritual being, a child of God.
44. My present teachings offer you spiritual knowledge enabling
you to become familiar with some of the knowledge that the Father
has reserved for his children.
45. Each human being possesses a spirit that is endowed with
divine greatness and many spiritual gifts. These teachings, and this
doctrine of God, have been given to man to make him worthy of
attaining that grace.
46. Humanity has greatly regressed spiritually because of its
materialism! It has endured great suffering because it is not
interested in seeking purity, truth, and spiritual elevation.
47. The spirit is attracted toward things that are virtuous and
pure, whereas the physical body is attracted toward things that are
unvirtuous and immoral. They struggle with one another and do not
live in harmony. That is why I have come to give you my doctrine of
love. It teaches the spirit and the physical body to live in harmony as
they follow the same ideal of divine love. This doctrine will give to
the spirit those things that pertain to the spirit and to the world those
things that pertain to the world. The flesh has instincts and low
passions. It is attracted to the material things of earth, because that is
where it was born. That is why man needs a doctrine that will make
the human heart more sensitive, noble, and virtuous without
preventing him from fulfilling the laws that govern him on earth.
With a doctrine of love, the spirit will also be able to elevate itself
toward the eternal and divine, toward that spiritual kingdom where
it was born. If the spirit is able to triumph over the flesh and
material world, it will be easier for the spirit to elevate itself toward
the Divine Father when it separates from the material body. The
material world, where it once dwelt and became a slave, will remain
far behind.
48. Man possesses a spirit which is why he is similar to the
Divine Father. As a spirit evolves, it gets closer to the Divine Father
who created all spiritual beings. An evolved spiritual being
possesses great wisdom, love, strength, and enlightenment. That
being will rejoice living in a state of spiritual perfection, a state of
true and perfect joy, where neither suffering nor misery exists.
49. If that was not the final destination for your spirit, truly I tell
you that I would not have given you so many divine teachings. The
commandments that I gave you in the First Era should have been
sufficient for mankind to live in peace on earth. I came in the
Second Era to live among men and promised them that a world that
was infinitely superior to earth awaited them. I also promised that I
would return in the future to bring new teachings and to explain
those things that man was not able to comprehend. Thus, you need
to know that the spiritual destiny of mankind is much more elevated
than you realize. The joy that awaits your spirit is much greater than
you could ever imagine.
My Peace be with you!
