Teaching 189
1. Humanity: I have come to unite you. I perceive you as a
multitude that is scattered throughout the world, but I want you to
betas one. I am giving you a new page from the book of life that is
yet unknown to my disciples.
2. My people: The spirit of Elijah is manifesting itself through
human spokesmen and speaks to you with words filled with
enlightenment and prophecy. He is the same one who in the First
Era surprised humanity with his power. Do not be surprised when I
tell you that he was also on earth in the Second Era, having
reincarnated as John the Baptist. I tell you this so you will not be
surprised because this is not a new revelation. This revelation was
previously written in the bible.
3. The prophets had stated that Elijah would come before Christ
to prepare the path for the Lord, and that prophecy was fulfilled.
Jesus later declared that prior to his second coming, Elijah would
first come to restore everything. That promise has now been
fulfilled.
4. Tomorrow, after this revelation is studied by those who have
greatly analyzed the scriptures, they will be able to confirm that the
spirit of Elijah did come in this period to fulfill the same mission
that he fulfilled in,The Second Era. His mission is to prepare
humanity for the coming of the .Lord and to purity those who are to
become disciples of the Holy Spirit.
5. Today, he does not come to earth to suffer as he did in the
First and Second Era. In those eras he was ridiculed, persecuted, and
murdered. That happened because he prophesied that all who were
wicked would be judged.
6. Today he has come in spirit, and therefore he cannot be
touched nor hurt by human beings. Nevertheless, this multitude still
offers him a bitter chalice of ingratitude.
7. Elijah is like a shepherd who lovingly seeks his sheep that
have gone as:ray. When he discovers that one is missing from his
flock, and that it is crying because it realizes it has gone astray near
the steep cliffs, Elijah quickly goes to seek it. He feels great joy
when he successfully rescues it from danger. He lovingly looks
forward to returning it to his flock, but experiences great sorrow
when he returns to the sheepfold and discovers that many others
have jumped the fence, leaving through their own free will.
8. These multitudes who have seen Elijah manifest himself
through human spokesmen and who have witnessed the blossoming
of this doctrine, that he began, will not be the ones who will most
carefully analyze these revelations given by the Lord. Tomorrow,
others will arrive and will be convinced of the truth of this doctrine
just by listening to testimony given by this multitude. Thus, they
will proclaim to others that the Lord has returned a second time aid
that Elijah was his forerunner.
9. Rest, and listen to me. My word comes to nourish you. It
comes to offer you comfort and forgiveness so that you may feel
inspired and thus fulfill the mission that I have given you.
D. Do not make plans to follow me only while you are listening
to me. Learn to feel me every moment of your life.
11. I observe that humanity is spiritually and morally very
backward! Those who have received my teachings in this era have a
great responsibility!
12. Disciples: Convert yourselves into teachers, remove your
fear of mankind from your heart, and do not be indifferent or lazy.
Be aware that you truly have a divine message to share with others.
You are the ones who will need to explain the events that are
occurring in this era and who will need to teach the principles of my
doctrine to mankind. Humanity has forgotten those principles.
13. There is no need to repeat my word to your brethren exactly
as I have phrased it. Prepare yourself to be able to explain it. Do not
use eloquent words attempting to impress others. Rather, speak in a
simple manner, which is the best way to explain the spiritual truth.
14. How will you know if it is you or I who speaks through your
lips? You will receive my divine inspiration when you begin to truly
forget about yourself, when you think about your brethren who
suffer, and when you feel humble and unworthy of receiving my
grace. It is at that moment that your entire being feels great love
toward God and your brethren.
15. When you perform a deed in my name, know how to use my
name and never pronounce it in vain.
16. Those who fulfill my work are rewarded. Whoever gives,
will receive; whoever refuses to give will eventually lose what he
has and will greatly suffer. I want you to comprehend my doctrine,
whose foundation is charity and love.
17. Practice good deeds, for that is your mission. However,
when your material body leads you astray, you feel unworthy of
being my disciple. You then think that there are many others who
are better than you, but who have not been summoned. I say to you,
that I summoned you because your heart lacked peace and your path
was full of obstacles. You were stained with sins.
18. When I selected my disciples in the Second Era, they were
also not virtuous. However, they became worthy through their deeds
and elevated themselves by practicing my teachings. I want you to
become virtuous and worthy like my previous apostles. Elevate
yourself through your deeds, and you will get close to me.
19. If I were to ask you what you have learned from all that I
have taught you, you would acknowledge that you have learned very
little. I have not come to judge you, but to forgive you, because your
faults are similar to those of mankind. Thus when I speak to you, I
am speaking to all of my children.
20. I have designated you to be my messenger. You will seek the
means to relate with your brethren. You will achieve great merit if
you are able to overcome their disbelief through your deeds and
words of love. Be careful that when you offer testimony of my
teachings to others, you do so with truth and perfection. Otherwise,
you will not have presented my teachings like they should be
presented.
21. Always pursue harmony between spiritual and material
things, or in other words, learn to give to God what belongs to God,
and to give to the world what belongs to the world.
22. I come to give myself to humanity in these teachings. You
will discover wisdom, virtue, and perfection in the essence of this
word. Nourish yourself with its essence, so that you may share it
with your brethren.
23. Take advantage of these moments, because the day
approaches when this word will no longer be heard. My will shall be
fulfilled. The era of spiritual communication between God and man
is near, therefore, I will no longer need human spokesmen to
manifest myself.
24. In this era, in which I offer you spiritual enlightenment
through these teachings, I have granted humanity the opportunity to
interpret them correctly.
25. Today I observe that each one of my disciples, as they gather
around the Divine Master to listen to his teachings, interprets my
word differently. When my disciples gather to discuss their
interpretations, they criticize one another and disagree. I want my
people to be united in their thoughts. To achieve this, you need to
practice charity, tolerance, and learn to speak at the appropriate
time.
26. Although each one of you now interprets my teachings
differently, in the future everyone will attain the same level of
comprehension and knowledge. This will inspire all of you in your
battle, because you will feel much stronger if you are united.
27. I have always told you not to create any theories from my
teachings and revelations, for they would detract from the truth that
I have come to bring you.
28. Discover in my doctrine that freedom of which I speak, so
that you will truly attain freedom and thus be able to perceive
everything more clearly.
29. Each time that I have come, I have taught you how to
communicate with the Father. I have come to teach you to discover
the truth within yourself and not to seek it in doctrines that only
keep you from progressing spiritually. Humanity has progressed
from infancy into this era of enlightenment, in which man will be
exposed to the infinite knowledge of God.
30. In order to perceive the enlightenment that illuminates this
era, it is necessary to remove the blindfold that man wears due to his
religious fanaticism. That is why I gave Moses a law which states:
Man shall not worship any idol, nor any material thing, in place of
God. Man shall love God, above everything else, with all his heart
and spirit.
31. You ask me: Why did the world fall into fanaticism and
materialistic worship? It happened because the individuals who
were entrusted with my law did not imitate Jesus, who rejected
honors, elegance, and vanity. These individuals preferred wealth,
titles, and material greatness, thus depriving the spirit of its freedom.
There are even those who in their confused and backward state feel
that they are incapable of mistakes. The only being who is infallible
is the Divine Father.
32. Thus, if you want your spirit to progress, use your
intelligence and spirituality, and practice good will and humility.
Thus you will progress spiritually and will guide your spirit to
salvation.
33. I have come to let you feel my love and to remove obstacles
from your path, decreasing the weight of your cross.
34. I perceive the innermost part of your heart, and I say to you:
Prepare your mind, elevate your thoughts, and unify your senses so
that you will be able to listen to my word and analyze it.
35. Pray and correct your sinful behavior, because world peace
depends on your spiritual evolution. You need to pray to achieve
peace because the world is threatened by war. You are the people
who are familiar with the power of prayer, its ability to cause
change, and its ability to enlighten.
36. Everyone seeks a peaceful land and they have not found it,
because brotherhood does not exist among mankind. Observe the
turmoil existing throughout the world with nations battling one
another. They are inspired only by the hope that somewhere on earth
there does exist peace. That land where peace exists is found in this
nation, which is seen like a distant shining star.
37. Thus, this multitude who has witnessed my manifestation
has an important mission and responsibility. These people need to
prepare themselves, spiritually and materially, so they can set
examples of brotherhood, elevation, and charity for others to follow.
They will do this by healing the ill and by- showing acts of
forgiveness toward their enemies.
38. Work with devotion in my fields and you will perceive in all
that surrounds you great beauty. You will have then discovered the
reason for your existence. Whoever becomes stagnant by practicing
rituals will not allow his spirit to elevate. He will not perceive the
beautiful and wonderful things found in life, which can only be seen
by those who live within my law.
39. Analyze yourself carefully so that you will discover if you
are leading an unproductive life. That will occur if you allow
yourself to be guided by the tendencies of the flesh. I want your
deeds to bear fruit so that you can help create a world of peace for
your children.
40. Through this multitude I will inform humanity about these
teachings that it will learn about after 1950.
41. These revelations will reach all of humanity. That is why I
have prepared those whom I have named golden pens. They will
work with great devotion, and will be guided by their conscience,
enabling my teachings to become printed. These writings are for the
present and future generations.
42. The greatness of my word given throughout the eras lies in
its simplicity and in its essence. I want your language to reflect
those same qualities when you speak about my work. Do not forget
that you not only speak with,your lips but also with your heart.
Allow your deeds to reflect purity.
43. I continually give you the strength, enlightenment, and
peace that you need for your journey. Also, I give you my blessings,
44. During this Third Era I will convert all humanity into my
disciples. To accomplish this, I have begun to spiritually enlighten
each human being. Later, I will then send them my teachings, the
same ones that I am presently giving to this multitude. The
testimonies, writings, and examples of my people will spread and
will become known from region to region and from nation to nation.
This will awaken those who were spiritually asleep, enabling them
to listen to their conscience.
45. Today, many beings wander without direction and frequently
ask me: Lord, where are we going? Where is this life leading us?
What awaits us at > the end?
46. Those who ask those questions are in a state of anguish.
They live in torment in a world that has reached its highest level of
evil and materialism. In order for them not to lose hope, I am
sending them my enlightenment so that they may continue to pray
and to be vigilant, while the storm;passes and peace comes to their
hearts.
47. Here, in this nation, I manifest myself verbally through these
enlightened beings whom I selected to be my spokesmen. When I
speak to these multitudes, I dedicate some of my words to children,
whom I encourage to follow the path of virtue. They need to avoid
the path of evil which has guided so many beings toward the abyss.
48. From their most tender age, I want children to have a
complete understanding of their mission. I speak directly to the
youth in order to guide them along the uncertain path of their lives,
because I perceive them like fragile boats in the midst of an enraged
sea. To help them, my divine truth is now before their eyes guiding
them toward salvation, like a shining lighthouse. I find that the
youth are the ones who are most distant from me:
49. While man is still a child, he prays and thinks about God.
He does the same when he reaches the peak of his life and begins to
descend, like the sun that sets in the west. However, when his heart
is like a bird that is anxious to fly, and his flesh vibrates when
touched by the temptations of the world, he feels strong. Then he
begins to separate from the divine teachings. He does this because
he does not want a doctrine of humility, love, and sacrifice which
would disapprove of his current deeds, words, and thoughts.
50. Only when man realizes that he lost himself in a sea of
passions will he seek that divine lighthouse, whose light will guide
him to the port of salvation.
51.1 have listened to those who are widows say to me: Father,
look at us, we- are like leaves that have fallen from a tree blown by
the wind.„ I have informed them that they are not alone and that
their spouse, who has departed ?>on a spiritual journey to another
world, is still observing them from there. He still protects and helps
them and has only departed a few moments ahead of them to
prepare the path for all those who were entrusted to him.
52. But if you are unable to feel the presence of your former
spouse, pray to me, and I will allow you to feel his presence. I will
comfort and assist individuals, and I will offer my gentle
companionship to those needing my guidance and help along their
journey.
53. If the beasts in the jungle, the birds in the sky, and the
flowers in the valley all continually receive rays of love and life
from the Divine Father, how could you possibly believe that I would
deny you the grace of my love for one single moment, if your spirit
is a part of my own divinity?
54. The father of a family seeks me to tell me about his worries
and preoccupations. His children reject his authority and ignore his
parental advise.
55. I need to inform you that your responsibilities are very great.
But your children will not become lost if you imitate me along your
path. That is you must have faith, enduring your chalice patiently
and you must love and forgive your brothers and children.
56. My people: If you yearn for my work to be known
throughout the world, live according to my doctrine, apply my
teaching to each one of your deeds, and bless your home with the
virtue that emanates from this word. Be aware that your past is like
a sealed book. Your life today is like a new and unknown journey, a
journey that you will need to travel until the end. Today you are
satisfied following my teaching whenever you desire. But the
moment will come when I will ask this multitude to give me an
account of all that it has done with my teachings.
57. Do not forget that this multitude has been fulfilling a
spiritual mission on earth for a long time and that it has been
summoned to fulfill an important mission among humanity. If the
charity of the Lord has sent you to dwell on earth, sow at least one
seed, but let it to be a seed of love, peace, and spirituality. Thus,
your journey on earth will have been productive. I need to inform
you that in spite of this nation's great destiny, you should not
consider it as the "promised land" nor as a new Jerusalem. Do not
confuse anyone nor confuse yourself. The Lord would not make his
disciples heirs to material benefits. This nation has a great mission,
and this nation will evolve greatly. Therefore, its inhabitants are the
ones who will announce my presence to the world. Also, they will
offer testimony of the truth and greatness of my doctrine through
their deeds and examples.
58. I will leave visible evidence of my communication in this
era, which will move and deeply touch humanity. I will leave my
word, written under divine dictation.
59. My teachings will initially become written in books, where
man will enter my secret sanctuary and penetrate into my wisdom.
When the essence of my teachings becomes engraved in the hearts
of my disciples, they will carry those teachings within their spirit.
60. You have experienced great joy, having witnessed my
manifestation through the human spokesmen. I have sent you my
spiritual messengers so that they can clarify and explain my
messages. I have sowed marvelous things along your path and have
allowed you to perceive spiritual things that have amazed you.
However, you are not the only ones who will enjoy these
manifestations, because in the Second Era I said that everyone
would perceive me spiritually. Truly I say, that all of humanity will
eventually perceive me. Also, the spiritual world will manifest itself
to mankind. These manifestations will touch and shaken even those
who are most doubtful.
61. Man still needs to see spiritual things materialize and divine
things take human form, in order to believe. I have granted this
grace to some.
62. My people: Be fully aware of the destiny that you have
among all the nations on earth so that you will fulfill your mission,
because now is the appropriate time.
63. I come to prepare your heart so that I may dwell in it. The
world will also become prepared, and the seed of peace will
germinate in each human heart. Those of you who sowed that seed
will be pleased as you perceive the fruit of your labor. You have
imitated the Divine Master, by praying for your brethren and
teaching them to live a virtuous life.
64. There will be talk of reconciliation, brotherhood, and peace
for all nations. That will be the beginning of the unification of
humanity.
65. I have been preparing you. I now ask you if you are willing
to arise to go in pursuit of your brethren to share the wisdom that I
have given you, answering their questions correctly. This should not
appear as an impossible task for anyone to fulfill. Behold that with
the knowledge that I have given you, you are now able to
comprehend your mission.
66. It will not be necessary for all of my children to journey to
foreign lands., Many times, all you will need to do is pray and
cleanse your heart so that your spirit will manifest itself in foreign
lands to help your brethren. Those who live in foreign lands will be
alerted by spiritual beings.
67. You will unite with the spiritual world to prevent new wars
and suffering. Continue to pray for those who pretend to achieve
spiritual power through the use of force. You and the world will be
surprised when you realize that reason, fraternity, and justice are not
dominated through force.
68. Be careful not to offer any false charity to your brethren,
attempting to conceal selfishness in your heart. Carry out as many
good deeds as you can without expecting anything in return. Do
them through love, as I have always taught, and you will then
accumulate merits that will help you to elevate spiritually. Practice
my teaching in the manner that I have requested. It is the same
teaching that I gave to my prophets and my apostles in the past eras.
69. Due to his materialism, man has found it convenient to
misinterpret the word that I have given to him during all eras. But
my work is perfect, and it is not based on the interpretation that man
gives to my doctrine. Prepare yourself, and you will always discover
my truth. You will discover that during all eras I have truly given
you a great seed. You must now give it to your brethren with love
and charity, the way I gave it to you.
70. It will not be necessary for you to impress anyone using
rituals or material ways. The temple in your heart will become
visible and your brethren will perceive its lamp and its altar.
71. Learn how to feel my presence, not only when you are
carrying out a kind deed but also when you are struggling to get out
of the abyss.
72. I have taught you to seek the truth in its simplicity. Man
foolishly seeks to discover the truth using elaborate sciences that he
has created! Why do you seek me in such distance places, if I am
within you? Who is not aware that man has been created in the
image of the Father, and that man is endowed with divine attributes
such as the conscience, intelligence, and free will?
73. I came to live among men in the Second Era and shared
their bread and homes. The greatness of Christ lies in his humility.
74. I teach you in this manner so that you will separate yourself
from material things and practice deeds of love with your brethren.
However, you first need to purify yourself, because it is a law that
all beings will eventually evolve. Therefore, since all things created
by God evolve, you should not be surprised by those prophecies that
will soon be fulfilled. You will rejoice with what you will perceive,
because it will verify that everything is governed by a perfect law.
Your spirit could not have previously experienced what it is now
experiencing, because everything occurs at the appropriate time,
until perfection is achieved.
75. The struggle for the progress of humanity does not only
occur on earth; spiritual beings from other mansions also work for
the progress and salvation of humanity. That is why I say to you that
the spiritual seed will blossom amidst all religions. After the great
battles, and after men proclaim that a new religion has come to sow
division, you will inform humanity that spiritualism is a doctrine. It
is the same doctrine that was first given to mankind and the only one
that has governed all spirits. Your words will emanate from your
heart, where your emotions are stored. I have always taught you to
love one another. These emotions of love manifest themselves when
you cry because of one's suffering or when you shed tears of
happiness for another brethren.
76. I am: speaking to you through human spokesmen. My
enlightenment and my grace penetrates into the spokesman and
becomes translated into words. My Word outlines the only path
through which you will reach me, a path that will require you to
practice humility and purity.
My Peace be with you!
