1. I am speaking to humanity through spokesmen whom I have
chosen. Blessed are those whom I have inspired for there is splendor
in their words. I have manifested my wisdom and my will through
those human spokesmen.
2. In the beginning, man who was endowed with intelligence
and reason, began to acquire knowledge, to form ideas, and to
worship the Lord. His spirit began to evolve through great
experiences. It was then that I sent Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to
earth. I sent them to set an example for humanity and to form the
trunk of the spiritual tree. They were to become the fathers of
descendants that would multiply throughout the ages and spread
throughout the world. The twelve tribes of Israel descended from
that family, and they possessed power and strength. Their mission
was to teach other nations how to worship the Creator and to abolish
sin. I entrusted this task to the people of Israel, for I perceived that
in the First Era men were greatly confused and misinterpreted my
law. The pure and simple spiritual worship that I requested from my
children degenerated into idolatry and into wicked, materialistic
practices. Although I have always been with mankind, it felt me
distant. Although mankind was sinning, it believed it was fulfilling
the law. When I sent my prophets to humanity, it did not recognize
them. As men listened to the prophets, whose words were filled with
devotion and righteousness, they would say to me: Lord, we cannot
follow you, because the path is too difficult. And the Divine Father,
who is always with his children giving them divine love and life, is
still waiting for them to acknowledge him.
3. My people, you are now living in the Third Era. I have sent
you to earth with the same mission of awakening and guiding
humanity. If you prepare yourselves, you will continually receive my
inspiration. After 1950, as my disciples, you will manifest my
teaching, my revelations, my will, and my charity through your
words and deeds. Your love for humanity will produce miracles, and
you will work faithfully to help your brethren. Once you have
progressed spiritually, do not feel superior to your brethren, whose
spirit has not yet evolved.
4. Elevate yourself, but if you need to descend in order to save
the spirit of your brother, do so, similar to how the Divine Shepherd
descends to the abyss to rescue the sheep that have fallen. Be a good
shepherd and learn how to prepare and to teach your brethren with
this teaching. It represents life, elevation, and greatness.
5. Let your heart always feel love for others, and thus you will
get to know the infinite work of your Father.
6. Oh beloved disciples, be merciful with the faults of your
brothers.
7. Blessed are those who do not judge the faults of their
brethren and who avoid the scandals that result from them, for they
manifest purity in their hearts and know how to practice charity.
8. Only the Lord blows how to truly judge every individual. He
knows how to teach and to discipline with true love. In the present
ordeals experienced by humanity, only He can judge because among
humanity there is not a single virtuous individual who has this right.
9. You will set a true example for others to follow when you
practice virtuous deeds, feel sorrow at the mistakes that others
commit, and truly dedicate yourself to evolving spiritually. If you
are teaching your brethren and illuminating their path with your
deeds, words, and thoughts, then you will be imitating the Divine
Master, the One who demonstrated how to be a perfect judge while
He was on earth.
10. I allowed great sinners, both men and women, to come
before my presence. I also permitted those who were hypocrites to
cross my path and to submit me to tests, to question me, to ridicule
me, and to try to humiliate me. I knew that they could not resist my
judgement and that all of them would eventually feel my divine
presence. On some occasions a single phrase was all I needed for an
individual to be touched, and on other occasions a glance or simply
my silence was sufficient. But you need to know that there was
humility, dignity, love, and compassion in my judgement.
11. Humility, gentleness, and love were the essence of the
justice that Jesus taught; nevertheless, humanity has never had a
judge that was more unyielding. Who is able to resist God's love,
purity, and divine light?
12. Truly I tell you, that there is no power strong enough to
oppose my love. My enemies and rival forces are small and weak,
and the weapons that have battled against truth and justice have
always been fragile.
13. The battle between the forces of evil and divine justice
appears to be an everlasting one, but, nevertheless, in comparison to
eternity the battle will be brief. The faults committed by your spirit
during the time when it sinned will eventually become insignificant
stains that will be erased forever by your virtues and my loving
justice.
14. Anyone who nourishes himself with my word, which is like
pure water, will never become thirsty again. All who recognize me
in the teachings of the Third Era that I bring to you will be strong
during the great ordeals that are approaching humanity, and he will
not perish.
15. I have come to prepare you so that you will not be surprised
by those ordeals. Strengthen your faith, and when the hurricane
blows, wanting to extinguish your lamp, be alert, guard it with
devotion, and thus you will not remain in darkness.
16. The world no longer has doubts when it listens to my
teachings. The spirit of man knows that it is journeying through the
great judgement day of the Lord, a time in which each deed will be
judged and my gaze will deeply touch each being. The spirit knows
that it has sowed bad seeds that will produce bitter fruits. The
conscience informs the spirit that it carries a heavy cross because it
has failed to fulfill the divine mandates and has departed from the
path of humility and obedience. I gave each being a cup that was to
be filled with love and with good deeds, however, you have returned
a cup filled only with bitterness and sin. You would like to set aside
that cup because you feel as if you are dying, and thus you are
seeking a cure. I say to you, Come to me, for I will not allow you to
die. Listen to my teachings, and prepare yourself to work.
17. Love your brethren and remove all hatred from your heart.
Stop practicing old customs that separate you from the path of
righteousness. Illuminate your path with the teachings that I have
given to mankind during all three eras. Seek the divine heritage in
the depth of your spirit. Remember the laws that I gave you through
Moses, and the teachings and examples that I gave through Jesus.
Also acknowledge the revelations that I have brought to you in this
Third Time as the Holy Spirit, and you will know why you weep. I
am removing your cup of bitterness and offering you my peace.
18. You will discover the same essence in these teachings as
those taught by Jesus. That same truth is found in the ten
commandments. Anyone who wants to serve me needs to know that
he will need to make sacrifices for the love of his brethren. But I
also tell you, that I will not forget your sacrifices and that I will
guide you to the Kingdom of Heaven.
19. Men of good will, feel my love and come to me. Lift up your
face and behold that Christ has returned among humanity, fulfilling
his promise.
20. I penetrate into the depths of your heart, where your spirit
offers me the simple worship of a prayer. In that prayer your spirit
informs me that it intends to follow me, to practice my teachings, to
be strong, and to remain serene through its ordeals.
21. After listening to that humble and sincere prayer, I inform
you that I will always be with you and that you will feel my
presence during your most difficult moments.
22. The light from this era is removing the veil of darkness that
surrounds the spirit of man. It comes to remove the chains which
had enslaved him preventing him from reaching the true path. Truly
I tell you, do not accept the idea that my doctrine prohibits you from
investigating any of the sciences. It is I who encourages your
curiosity and quest for knowledge. That is why I have given your
spirit the ability and freedom to think. I have given you intelligence
and enlightenment so that you may comprehend those things that
you perceive along your path. That is why I tell you to investigate
and to analyze things carefully. However, when you penetrate into
the holy sanctuary of God, do so with humility and respect. Only in
that manner will I permit you to enter into my sanctuary.
23. I have not prohibited you from reading the books written by
men, but you need to be prepared so that you will not stumble and
become confused. From those books you will know how man began
his life on earth, the struggles he has faced, and how far he has
journeyed. After you have acquired that knowledge, you will need to
study my teachings and revelations so that you will learn what
awaits you in the future and what to expect at the end of your
journey.
24. Each one should prepare himself according to what his
conscience tells him to do. Be aware that the time of battle will soon
arrive and that you should not meditate in solitude. Instead, you will
need to confront the world and its temptations and not retreat for a
single moment.
25. If you do not prepare yourself and analyze my doctrine,
humanity will develop false .beliefs that will be accepted as the
truth. I do not want humanity to judge you as deceivers of the truth
because your beliefs differ.
26. Use your strength to prepare yourself, and do not waste it
judging the deeds of others.
27. I have asked you many times to unite. But be aware that
when I ask you to unite, not only am I referring to your unity in the
houses of prayer but also to being in harmony with the entire
universe.
28. Behold that I have not come to encourage rituals. I did not
come in the second era nor in the present era requesting a throne or
a material temple such as those you have to worship God. Do not
offer me any material treasures from earth, nor any human vanities,
for you would be like the one who tempted Jesus in the desert,
offering his kingdom for the kingdom of God. You already know
that my kingdom is not of this world. I was born a humble man on
earth, to demonstrate that one does not need to have power and
greatness to conquer the kingdom of heaven.
29. Why do you offer me material riches knowing that
everything belongs to me? Instead, offer me your love, which I do
not have.
30. It is your spirit that I seek, because your spirit is a part of
mine and it needs to return to me. However, in order to rescue your
spirit, I had to descend to earth. But today, your spirit will need to
elevate itself, through the practice of virtue, until it ascends to God.
31. Disciples: You seek my grace with your deeds and your
thoughts. Because I am aware of your efforts and your love, I will
grant it. Rather than asking for material benefits or things that will
bring you temporary happiness, you seek the path of eternal life and
peace where you can rest from your struggle.
32. Nourish yourself with the essence in my word. If you are
suffering, take comfort realizing that in your suffering you will
discover a light that will signal the path of eternal life. That
suffering will not permit the spirit to fall asleep nor to become vain.
That pain will renew and give life to the heart.
33. I have spoken about eternal life during all eras, an endless
path traveled by the spirit to evolve, to attain perfection, and to
reach the Lord. I came in the Second Era as an example for you to
follow. I limited myself through the human body of Jesus. Although
I experienced the harshness of life as a human being, I fulfilled the
divine laws and the laws of man. But in addition to doing those
things, I also delivered a message of love and tenderness to the
world.
34. When the time arrived for me to preach and to carry out my
deeds, I dedicated myself to fulfilling my mission.
35. Not everyone comprehends the importance of the spirit
compared to the material body. The doctrine of love that I
previously taught has been practiced by man on a very limited
degree. Your heart is very weak! Although many claim they love me,
they nevertheless reject my teachings.
36. In the Second Era when I informed my disciples that I
would return in the future, they asked when that prophecy would be
fulfilled. I told them to be alert and to pray so they would know
when it would be fulfilled. Many thought that I would soon return.
However, I did not return as judge until this era, to prepare the path
for all beings. If men would open their spiritual eyes, they would
perceive me descending upon a white cloud sending numerous rays
of enlightenment to earth.
37. Who can analyze the essence of my Spirit, if I am light,
divine love, and lack a material body? I have returned clothed in
humility. The virtue that I teach is the same one that I preached in
the Second Era. I want you to be near me and to acknowledge my
new manifestation.
38. Many have not evolved due to fear or to a lack of study.
They still practice the law of Moses without acknowledging the
coming of the Messiah. Others, believing in Jesus, have disregarded
the arrival of the Holy Spirit as prophesied. I have come for the third
time yet many do not await me.
39. The angels announced my arrival and their voices were
heard throughout the heavens. Did you not hear them? The spiritual
world has come to offer you testimony of my presence. All the
prophecies will be fulfilled. The disasters that are now occurring on
earth will overcome the pride and vanity of man. Once man
becomes humble, he will then seek me, calling me Father. Love me,
and thus you will acknowledge me. A prayer for world peace will
then emerge from your heart. I love all of my children. Once they
evolve spiritually and return to me, I will make a covenant with men
and there will be great joy with the Father and his children.
40. Those who awaited me were not surprised with my
manifestation through the human spokesmen. Others have denied
that the Divine Master has returned to manifest himself in this
manner to the world. But I tell you to pray and to analyze carefully,
studying the prophecies, as you listen to the voice of your
conscience. Then, you will know how to respond to any question
that you are asked.
41. I bless you, my people. I have given you life, and I am
inspiring you along your path of evolution, because I love you. I
have provided man, as well as other creatures on earth, with the
material elements that are necessary for life. All are a part of me and
are subject to my will. In the past I said that the leaf of a tree does
not move without the will of God. In order to live, I have given you
air to breathe, the sun to warm your body, and water and fruits for
nourishment. I have endowed each human being with a spirit and
have permitted that being to enter into my sanctuary to attain
spiritual elevation. Your spirit will not die. However, all the material
things in nature will only exist temporarily, because I created them
to serve man. After they fulfill their destiny, they will disappear.
42. The earth, the plants, and the animals all pay a tribute of
gratitude to God. All of creation kneels before God and obeys his
laws. The beasts in the jungle love one another and do not kill
members of their own species. If they do, it is only to nourish
themselves. Mates respect one another. They do not multiply before
their time, and they do not reject one another. However, humans do
exactly the opposite, because of free will. But I have given man a
conscience and the law to illuminate his path. Awaken, and open
your eyes to the light of my teaching. You are destined to come to
me, do not delay your journey. Do not make your journey painful.
Allow your spirit to seek me, to love me, to understand me, and to
become inspired and strong through prayer and by practicing my
doctrine.
43. I am preparing you to fulfill my law, so that you will be able
to teach and to help your brethren.
44. I want you to love me and to perceive me in nature, which I
created with perfection. You can perceive me in the pure water
flowing down the streams, in the green vegetation of the valleys and
fields, in the fresh air that touches your face, and in the stars that fill
the heavens. Do not make me suffer by rejecting me.
45. Behold that I am nourishing your spirit with the essence of
my word. I am healing those who are afflicted with a physical and
spiritual leprosy, because just as the body needs nourishment to live,
the spirit also needs spiritual nourishment. Its nourishment is love,
spiritual communication with the Divine Father, and the fulfillment
of its responsibilities. By achieving those things you can live happily
on earth today and in the spiritual valley tomorrow.
46. My love is with you. These spokesmen, whom I have
prepared, translate my inspiration into words. They are my
interpreters, and I manifest myself through them according to their
level of preparation and spiritual capacity. Anyone can become one
of my spokesmen. The human spokesmen are unable to manifest the
full power of God, thus I am only able to manifest myself through
them in a limited manner so that you may comprehend my teaching.
I say to you, Come to receive the love and the teachings of the
Divine Master so that you will no longer thirst for knowledge. Some
of you are frightened, and I ask you: Why are you afraid, if I have
always been with all of my children and if I am in your heart?
47. My love for each of you is very great and that is why I have
chosen you from different regions and nations, because you greatly
need me. You have a pact with me, because in the past you failed to
fulfill your mission. It is necessary to hasten your step so that you
may arrive pure and virtuous before my presence, similar to how
you were when I created you.
48. You have not yet attained spiritual perfection and are now
approaching the end of time. My manifestation has lasted many
years in this era. I have spoken in parables. If you read my first
teachings, as transmitted by the first spokesmen, you will appreciate
my presence and feel sorrow due to your negligence. In each
congregation where my people have gathered, my teachings have
manifested the same essence and I have said to you: First analyze
yourself so that you will understand your brethren better. Learn to
feel the suffering of your brethren, and love them, as I love you.
49. I have come to seek and to rescue your spirit, because it
belongs to me and is a part of my Spirit. I have come to declare war,
but not against humanity, but against sin and evil. You need to
remain strong in the battle that is taking place among humanity. Use
your spiritual gifts to practice deeds of love and charity, and your
gifts will multiply and become abundant. I am asking you to
regenerate, because you have lost the grace and purity that I
originally gave you, which you should never have lost.
50. I informed you that I would arrive upon a cloud surrounded
by angels. Have not those prophecies been fulfilled? Has not my
spiritual world spoken to you, thus confirming my prophecies?
Great ordeals will come that will touch and affect earth. During that
period, I do not want you to seek me as Judge. Rather, seek me as
your Father and Divine Master. I will teach you about love and
humility. I will show you the true path, which does not seek a crown
nor a scepter on earth, but rather humility. To be great, is to be
humble.
51. I want all of you to become united, because after 1950 the
Divine Father will no longer manifest himself through human
spokesmen. Your spirit will yearn for the continuation of this
manifestation. Many of you will weaken, as did Peter, and others
will doubt, as did Thomas. But who will imitate John? Truly I tell
you that if you love me, as did John, you will perceive me in all of
my splendor and I will say to you: Come to me for you who are in a
state of sorrow. I am your Father, and I feel the pain of all of my
children. Pray, and you will feel the Lord along your side, helping
you carry your cross. Be strong and accept your ordeals, and your
sorrow will be lessened.
52. I have prepared the people of this nation to manifest my new
doctrine, enabling them to elevate spiritually. Thus, they will be able
to perceive the second Jerusalem in the spiritual valley. That is the
promised land where everyone will reunite spiritually with the
patriarchs at the end of time. It is my will that people from different
races come to this nation so that those who are weary from war and
conflict, and are seeking a place to study my teaching, can find
peace in this nation. Furthermore, those who hunger for spirituality
will be comforted and enlightened with my teachings. Thus, while
on earth those individuals will be able to experience what the new
Jerusalem will be like, where all spirits will one day dwell in
fulfillment of my word.
53. I will make this nation magnificent. Not only will it evolve
spiritually, but it will also achieve material power. Its fields will
bear fruit, and its people will be full of enthusiasm with strong
moral values. I will prepare those who dwell in this nation, so they
can attain spiritual elevation and knowledge of my law.
54. When people from other parts of the world come and
observe how my doctrine has changed this nation of people, they
will want to amend their own lives. They will seek to correct their
ways by carefully studying my law and seeking my word. They will
seek to communicate with the Father. I will communicate with them
lovingly, and I will place them at the beginning of their journey.
Thus, they will begin their journey leading them to the promised
land, where I await my children.
55. Disciples: Not everyone will listen to my word in the same
manner. However, be aware that everyone who seeks me will find
me. You will inform your brethren that my inspiration will be with
each being who loves me. If you arise to fulfill your mission before
the others, prepare their path with examples of love and humility.
56. Remain near me. Open your spiritual eyes and your heart to
feel my love. Remember all the things that you have learned from
my teachings, so that tomorrow you will be able to teach those
things to your brethren.
57. Become aware of the importance of these teachings, which
contain great wisdom, and which will serve as your salvation.
58. I welcome you, and through you I welcome all of my
children. My wisdom descends upon each one of my disciples who
has prepared his heart and mind.
59. I come to bring you enlightenment, strength, peace, and
love, so that you will not feel weak in the presence of others.
60. You are patient knowing that you have come to earth to
fulfill the noble mission of establishing peace and brotherhood
among mankind. You know that you need to remain alert and
watchful so that the Divine Father's mandate will be fulfilled.
61. I am continually inviting each individual to follow the path
of my law. Those of you witnessing this manifestation were the first
to receive my revelations in this period, and you have seen others
arrive after you. Since you were the first to acknowledge me, you
are obligated to follow my teaching and to help your brethren,
offering an example for others to follow.
62. You have a great mission, but I observe that you still lack
the courage and the faith to become my apostles in the Third Era.
You experience moments of weakness and desperation, and you
struggle with yourself. You need to triumph over all obstacles along
your path. You sense the greatness of my teaching, and you have
discovered how my word offers you encouragement. My teaching
has taught you how to pray so you can free yourself from
temptation.
63. The Divine Master does not want you to use your time
unwisely. Behold how humanity has progressed in certain areas.
However, I want it to progress in all areas and for harmony to exist
between the spiritual and physical life.
64. This life offers your spirit a wonderful opportunity to
progress. Continue with your journey, and continue to grow and to
evolve. Behold how all things in nature change and evolve. In the
beginning you were similar to an atom, in size, due to your lack of
spiritual growth. But now since I have endowed you with
intelligence, you are holding the elements of nature in the palm of
your hands for your use. My law was awaiting you when you first
came to inhabit the earth, and ever since then the Father has been
enlightening you about the spiritual life and guiding you toward that
spiritual mansion where you will one day dwell. After your struggle
and purification, you will rejoice and be in peace in that mansion.
65. Always listen to the voice of your conscience so that it can
inform you if you have fulfilled the divine law.
Parable
66. Listen to my parable: There was a man walking on a
mountain who was well acquainted with the hills, forests, and roads.
He journeyed through those places seeking nourishment for his
family. One day, he heard a voice that said, "I am observing you, and
I know your struggle. That is why I have come, for I am present
throughout creation and give life to all things. Arise, and go tell your
people what you have heard and felt. Once they accept it, unite all of
your people. Help them to arise and to go in pursuit of the promised
land that I have prepared for them."
As the man heard that voice, his heart began to beat rapidly, and
he did not attempt to lift up his face to see who was talking. He felt
an unknown strength penetrate into his being, as if a divine light had
filled his spirit with strength. When the voice ceased, he no longer
felt tired, but he did feel the weight of a new responsibility upon his
spirit. He returned to his people to tell them what had happened.
Since he was a virtuous man, they believed him.
The man told his followers: "The voice that I heard spoke to me
of a path, unknown to me. Perhaps, somewhere, there is a path that
leads to a great city or to a large field with vineyards." As he lay in
bed one night, he heard a clear voice in his conscience that told him:
"Your eyes have not seen that path, because it is only visible to your
conscience. It is the path of my law." He then heard the
commandments of that law. It required people to love God above all
creation, and not to worship Him through idols created by human
imagination and fanaticism. It required all human beings to love one
another. That path, was one of love and righteousness. When the
man woke up he realized that his spirit had received a divine
revelation, and he told his family about his dream. With great faith
and obedience, he gathered his followers to establish a nation of
people that would become strong and great.
67. I am speaking about Moses in my parable. Those who will
guide humanity today are similar to Moses. He prayed silently when
he communicated with the Father, and he guided his people in their
long journey through the desert. When he saw that his people had
become spiritually weak, he threw the tablets of the law to the
ground.
68. Since that time, three eras have passed, and now I ask you:
Who among you knows the path? Who is truly preparing himself to
listen to the voice of the Divine Father? Where are those who are
willing to tell me, as did your brethren in the past: Lord, if it is
necessary to sacrifice my existence for the good of your work, let
your will be done.
69. Presently, I find no one who speaks to the Divine Master in
that manner. How are you going to inform your brethren about my
word in this era? It is necessary that those who have witnessed my
manifestation become united so that my work of love and purity will
become acknowledged by others. However, if you present my
doctrine through rituals, symbols, or false beliefs, your brethren will
not accept it. But if you combine your testimony with deeds of love,
your brethren will acknowledge and respect my law.
70. Study my word because in it you will be able to listen to the
voice of your Father who, through your conscience, will show you
the path that you need to follow. You will observe your spirit evolve
as you follow my path.
71. In the same manner that you have studied and analyzed the
human body, you should do the same with the spirit. Then you will
discover its true greatness.
72. Battle, and even if your struggle is difficult, do not become
weary of offering testimony of my truth. Practice good deeds, even
if it requires a great sacrifice on your behalf. Your mission is to save
your brethren.
73. I offer you my blessings and my forgiveness.
My Peace be with you!
