Teaching 186
1. I welcome all disciples who come before me to learn new
revelations. Joyful and blessed are those who want to clearly
perceive the truth of my teachings. It is good that you want to
remove the veil that covers your spiritual eyes. All have a great
responsibility to penetrate more deeply into the mysteries of my
secret sanctuary but many make no effort.
2. When will they become weary of the pleasures of the material
flesh? When will they realize that those pleasures have prevented
them from enjoying the graces of the spirit? They are slaves to their
passions and to a kingdom of sin as they journey through the world
similar to the deaf, the blind, the paralytic, the leper, not realizing
their mistakes. When one of them discovers that his spirit is ill, he
does not know how to seek the healing balsam that radiates from my Spirit.
3. The blind are leading the blind. It is thus that I perceive many
of the nations of the world and many of the cities on the earth.
Human virtues have declined and noble sentiments have
disappeared. The human heart, which should inspire loving
emotions and elevated thoughts, has been converted into a fountain
of egotism, of vices and of errors.
4. Why is it strange for your loving Father to give you weapons
of love at this time to fight the evil that reigns over mankind?
5. My doctrine is truly a weapon. It is a sword of enlightenment
which touches the human heart and moves the most sensitive part of
man. You will need strength to triumph over evil. My word comes to
give that strength to your spirit. The greatest battle that you will ever
experience will be against yourself. I want you to triumph in that
battle and to dominate your sensuous passions and selfishness. That
great battle will take place within your being.
6. Good will, reason, justice, and charity will struggle against
low human passions, but the light will triumph over the darkness. If
I did not know the final outcome, I would not allow your spirit to
engage in such a fruitless and useless battle.
7. When you think of the patriarchs, the prophets, or the
apostles, do not judge them as extraordinary beings, because they
were all created from the same essence from which I created you.
But they were beings who strengthened themselves in order to be
strong in the path of light, to be in harmony with the truth, to live a
virtuous life, and to respect my law. Because they did not weaken,
they left exemplary deeds for their brethren to follow.
8. Have you observed those beings who only pursue physical
pleasures and comforts, disregarding the gifts of the spirit and the
eternal life? Later, you will observe those same beings anxiously in
search of the spiritual sanctuary in order to become workers in the
true temple.
9. My divine word will teach man how to use his spiritual
strength to journey along the path of life. Those who are enlightened
with my teachings will never stumble or fall as they confront
different ordeals along their path.
10. It is necessary for you to analyze my word, because if you
do not, you will perceive things as mysterious when they are truly
clear and perfect. God has no mysteries for man. What has occurred
is that sometimes man has not wanted to penetrate into the light, or
he has wanted to know certain revelations before the appropriate
time. Although it is now time for man to comprehend many of my
teachings, he misinterprets many of them because of his corruption.
11. What have you learned from your religions? What is the
value of you proclaiming to practice one religion or another if you
do not follow the mandates of your religion nor attempt to get close
to me by following those mandates?
12. If you want to know if you are fulfilling the divine law, ask
yourself if you are gathering a harvest of love in this world.
13. I have many things to reveal to you during this period. I am
ready to offer you the kingdom of heaven, but you must first free
your spirit because it will be the one who will receive me. Then you
will see me and feel me.
14. An alliance of peace will be established among men of good
will, but I advise you not to wait until you are in the spiritual
mansion to create that alliance. The merit lies in offering a tribute of
gratitude to your Father while on earth, where the world received
the blood of the Lamb as a seed of love. That gratitude would best
be demonstrated with your obedience and your love of one another.
15. Believe in the immortality of the spirit. I tell you this
because there are some who believe that death for those who live in
sin marks the end to their existence. They believe that sinners will
be deprived of eternal life and become subject to eternal
punishment.
16. Those who believe that have misinterpreted the meaning of
many of my revelations. If this was true, it would be similar to
proclaiming the failure of love, virtue, and justice. What would have
been the purpose of my having come to the earth to be crucified? Do
not forget that I came for the sinners, the sick, the slaves, the hungry,
and the lost.
17. Your spirit possesses eternal life from the Divine Spirit. The
only thing that dies is the material body. The spirit will then be free
to continue its spiritual growth in the spiritual valley. If the spirit is
stained with sin, it will witness the death of sin. The spirit will then
cease to be ignorant. After each reincarnation on earth, the spirit will
return to the spiritual valley with greater strength, purity, and
enlightenment.
18. Have you ever experienced a strong passion in your life that
prevented you from listening to reason and to the voice of your
conscience? That is when the spirit has truly fallen and the strong
temptations of the material body dominate the spirit. And, is it not
true that you have also experienced great joy and peace when you
have triumphed over that passion?
19. That peace and happiness are due to the spirit's triumph over
the flesh, a great struggle between the passions of the flesh and your
conscience. But all the spirit had to do was to utilize its strength and
follow its conscience,. After having triumphed over the passions of
the flesh the spirit achieved freedom, no longer allowing itself to fall
into the abyss. In that inner struggle, you witnessed the death of
those immoral passions.
20. Therefore, be aware that when man allows himself to be
guided by his conscience, it will be as if a new being has been born
within that person. That new being will never die. Man will view the
material body as only a temporary outer covering for his spirit.
When the time comes for the spirit to depart to its true spiritual
mansion, the material body will then descend to the earth's soil.
21. I say to you that eternal condemnation and eternal death do
not exist. Only those things that superfluous, useless, and evil will
die. Once a being becomes purified there will be no need for
restitution. I said to you in the past that none of the things that I have
created would become lost. I also said that none of my children
would become lost. I revealed the immortality of the spirit when I
told you, I am the Life, and whoever believes in me will never die.
22. My beloved people: Close your physical eyes and feel my
presence. You are listening to the voice of the spokesman through
whom I transmit my message. But if you elevate yourself spiritually,
you will feel my spiritual presence. All beings will be able to
perceive the Lord in this holy Third Era! Idolatry will disappear, and
men will get to know the truth.
23. During this era it has been my will to communicate through
human spokesmen so that you could feel my warmth and closeness.
Thus, you would realize that we are truly one. In the Second Era I
was also close to mankind.
I was born among them, lived by their side, shared their sorrows,
and suffered in their presence.
24. Today, the multitudes have awaken in the presence of my
new teachings and have established a new nation. The majority of it
are poor people, those whom you refer to as abandoned individuals.
But truly they do not lack any of the spiritual gifts given to each
being by the Holy Spirit. In the presence of my doctrine, those
individuals have awaken from their sleep and have discovered the
divine treasure. Thus, they have begun to evolve spiritually, and
their ignorance has begun to disappear. They have become
illuminated through intuition and inspiration. When they pray they
are able to perceive things spiritually and are also able to perceive
the future. They have manifested the gift of healing, having healed
others through their thoughts, simple words, or by anointing them.
The humble disciples of this doctrine have also manifested many
other gifts.
25. These individuals did not possess anything on earth, but
once they realized what the Father had given them, they worked
with enthusiasm and dedication for this cause. Thus, they have
discovered many of the graces which they have been given but
previously ignored.
26. How could man have discovered the gifts possessed by his
spirit if previously he was only interested in accumulating material
riches from earth?
27. If man would have known how to pray and realize that I
understand the language of the heart, the necessities of his spirit, his
personal desires, and that I know how to interpret all his thoughts,
then he would have elevated his prayers to the Creator. However,
man is still very much a part of the material world. Thus, he
worships me in a material manner and is not evolving spiritually.
How can humanity become aware of its mistakes? It will begin to
spiritually awaken when I send a multitude of people who are
spiritualized and whose children have high moral standards, as
taught by my doctrine.
28. Humanity has defied my divine justice with its sins, wars,
doctrines, materialism, and science. It could only expect punishment
for its great sins. But behold that I have chosen to send my divine
enlightenment to man, offering him comfort, revelations,
forgiveness and peace, to help him become enlightened and evolved.
29. Man has filled his chalice with bitterness, which he will
eventually need to drink. Truly I tell you that he will become
enlightened through suffering. However, I am illuminating your
spirit in a gentle manner through my love and true wisdom.
30. Multitudes, who are listening to this voice: Rejoice, and be
aware that you were destined to perceive my light in this period of
great spiritual struggles.
31. Do not sleep, for not only do I speak to you through human
spokesmen, but I also speak to your spirit when it is at peace and
elevates itself to communicate with me.
32. In order to let your heart guide you, allow me to first purify
it so that you may receive my divine inspiration through your heart.
33. You are not the only ones who summon me. Your brethren
from different religions are also summoning God. I have not come
only for you. I, the Comforter Spirit, come to bring peace to every
heart and spirit that is suffering.
34. Because man could not represent the Spirit of the Creator,
man created an image of the love of Jesus and outlined it on a piece
of linen, giving it a human form.
35. Throughout the eras I have always accepted the different
types of worship offered to me by mankind, including rituals, burnt
offerings, and sacrifices, for it is the intention and not the act which
is important.
36. Truly, the images that man has made of me are imperfect,
and I am not interested in the various images man uses to
acknowledge me. I am only interested in man's intention.
37. Nevertheless, it will truly please me when humanity begins
to practice true spirituality, similar to how this multitude of people
has begun to take its first steps along the path of spirituality. You
have set aside those things which are superficial and external in
order to truly feel me within your heart. You think about me when
you carry out a good deed, and I am in your thoughts when you
attempt to communicate with me.
38. Who can doubt, when listening to this voice, that God in his
greatness is manifesting himself through these human spokesmen?
Would it be more gratifying to God to manifest himself in a piece of
bread, which lacks life, than through his own children who were
created in his image and who are the most perfect beings created?
How could God not manifest himself through his privileged children
who were created in the image of God? There is nothing strange
about God being able to manifest himself through the human mind.
However, humanity is doubtful and distrustful, because many times
it has been deceived. That is why it only hears but does not truly listen.
39. It is necessary to make the human heart sensitive by
practicing deeds of love with your brethren. Thus, by practicing
deeds of brotherhood and love you will be setting an example for
others to follow.
40. The human heart has become so insensitive that it is not
touched by the misfortune or suffering of others. To progress
spiritually, one needs to feel the pain of others and to understand
why one suffers.
41. When man limits himself to judging his brother, he only
becomes confused. However, when he tries to understand the cause
of his brother's suffering and truly attempts to help him, he will
discover the reason for the suffering. Then, he will be able to truly
help his brother.
42. Many beings suffer greatly due to a lack of spiritual faith!
They believe that only the material world exists and doubt the
existence of the spirit, because they feel there is no true evidence.
As they reflect on these and other things they despair and are unable
to progress spiritually.
43. The first lesson you will give your future disciples will be
based upon this teaching. You will offer them an opportunity to
ascend, beginning with the first step in their path of evolution. You
will reveal to them that the Father, in his infinite love and perfect
justice, grants every spirit as many material existences as are
necessary for its perfection. There is more suffering in some
lifetimes than in others. Some will be filled with benefits and well
being, others with bitterness and restitution.
44. There are some who live without suffering or experiencing
great ordeals. Many, who are ignorant and unhappy, have called me
unjust because of this.
45. You will meet many of these individuals along your path
and it will be your responsibility to clarify this issue. They will ask
you if it is true that reward or punishment awaits one in the
hereafter. You will respond that as long as the spirit has not attained
sufficient elevation to dwell in the spiritual valley, it will need to
incarnate on earth and live each existence according to its previous
progress. Some lifetimes will be to gather a good harvest and others
to settle a debt or to complete a mission.
46. Once the spirit has traveled the paths destined for it on
earth, it will be able to elevate itself to the spiritual mansion where
it will continue the path that will lead it to the presence of the Divine Father.
47. You will clarify ideas that are confusing and unclear to your
brethren. However, you will not be able to convince everyone of
your beliefs. Those who do not accept your beliefs will help you
become better prepared to teach others in the future by becoming
familiar with differing ideas.
48. Truly I tell you that the teaching that I have brought to
humanity is similar to awakening to a spring morning. It resembles a
refreshing rain fertilizing fields that are dry, lifeless, and unproductive.
49. Approach each of your brethren in my name. Who will be
able to reject the gentle name of Jesus if my sacrifice was for all beings?
50. Help you brethren to realize that they are at the foot of the
mountain awaiting the teachings of the Divine Master. These
teachings offer nourishment and life to your spirit.
51. I am preparing the table with white linens. I have placed
fruits from the tree of life, so that your spirit will nourish itself and
become strong.
52. The light from the Holy Spirit comes to free your spirit from
darkness, because you have lost your path. You are confused and
have died to the life of grace.
53. My beloved people, you are disobedient, ungrateful, and you
practice idolatry. You separated from the light and penetrated into
the darkness. Also, you removed your white garments and are
poisoning yourself with the unvirtuous life you live.
54. In the Second Era, I came to teach you how to love, how to
forgive, and I offered you an example of humility. As the Divine
Master, I gave you my teaching. But you have fallen into confusion
with the passage of time.
55. Oh my people, I came seeking you and found you spiritually
dead and in the desert nourishing the seven sins. Today I have come
as the Good Shepherd seeking you through all paths and protecting
you from harm. You have listened to me and have felt my presence.
I have given you all that your spirit needs. I have offered you
evidence of my love, enlightenment, and an abundance of teachings.
56. Come, my people, and climb the mountain one step at a
time. As you climb it. you will realize that you are in spiritual
communion with the Father, tasting the fruit from the tree of life. A
spring of pure water will descend from the mountain to quench your
spiritual thirst on your journey.
57. People of Israel from the Third Era: You are listening to the
Divine Master who offers you his teachings and prophecies. Why,
my beloved people? I do this so that you may awaken from your sleep.
58. Those who have eyes should observe, those who have a
mind should analyze, and those who have ears should listen to the
Divine Master. You are the chosen ones. Your are the dead whom I
have resurrected, the blind whom I have given sight, the lost whom I
have guided with my light, and the shipwrecked whom I have
revealed the ark of salvation.
59. Behold the banquet that has been prepared by the Divine
Father for the "prodigal son" who had been lost. The son had been
scourged by the violent winds of life and endured its bitter chalice.
60. Feel my presence, and allow me to dwell in your heart. In
the Second Era I told my disciples: "Drink and eat, for this is my
body". I now tell you in the Third Era: Drink and eat, for this is my word.
61. Beloved disciples, the year 1950 is approaching, and I will
no longer manifest myself in this manner after that year. However,
by then, you will have received my word in abundance, and you
will, arise to imitate the Divine Master. You will be like a shining
beacon that will guide humanity and will offer charity to your brethren.
My Peace be with you!
