The Quest for the Apocalyptic Beast – Part 2

This entry it's part of the The Quest for the Apocalyptic Beast series. Part 2 of 2

An Healthy Ego?

There is not such thing… Your ego is that personality, that mask that you have came to believe is the true you.

And the worst thing: You are actually intertwined with that thing, with that false notion of your true self.

Of course, your true self is the spirit within your human body.

And there are a lot of different apparels that the ego uses in order to trick us: False modesty and even shyness is nothing else that the ego, working in an inverted fashion. You see, shyness as well as shame comes from the caring of what others would think of “you”.

In other words, when you are concerned about the image projection of “you” or the perception that others would have of that image the ego created to hide itself, in reality you are worried about which might be the best way to deceive everybody…. including yourself.

The good news is that, even though the ego believes that it totally controls you, in fact, you -a spirit- are the one that has the power.

Anyone of us can shutdown its ego completely, just as Jesus thaught us to do. At the very least, you can start by diminishing it right away. All you have to do is be vigilant and aware that the beast is ready to jump out of the cage as soon as you loosen your watch.

That Voice in Your Brain: Conscience or Ego?

Beware! What many believe to be the voice of the Conscience, is in reality the voice of an impostor: the ego.

If you think that you have a conscience of your own, you have been deceived.

Self-awareness or consciousness is one thing, and most of the time it is “personal”, and we humans tend to believe that it is ours; but the Conscience is quite different.

Since the ego has another powerful trick which is to convert instantaneously any thought you have into a belief, the defense of that belief turns into the most important task you have. It doesn’t matter if that thought/belief is good or bad, or right or wrong… the only important thing is that it is “yours”, so you automatically defend it.

But the Conscience is a quite different matter.

To begin with, we all share a common, omnipresent, universal Conscience, not a particular one. That Conscience, which is by nature unselfish, wise and perfect, bonds all of us. So, there is no way you can have your own peculiar Conscience, different or apart from the one that everyone else have.

So, there is the voice of the ego and there is the one from the Conscience.

How can we distinguish one from the other? Easy. The Conscience always speaks of the divine Law, of good and love, unselfish love. It uses no fancy wording, no trickeries, no hoaxes. And there is no way for you to negotiate with the True Conscience. It is implacable, immutable, inexorable… it does not accomodate to your personal agenda.

The other voice, the voice of the ego? It will start throwing to the table which is your human mind, all kind of selfish ideas, thoughts, schemes and stratagems, interpreting, misrepresenting and accommodating things so they suit the false belief system that the ego has developed, no matter what cost to your true self or to others.

So, next time you clash with someone else’s belief or self-interests system, and that person insists in that he or she is listening and obeying the voice of his or her conscience which contradicts and opposes the voice of the Conscience in you, you better be prepared to make sure that it is not a battle of egos: yours and theirs.

The Anti-Ego Recipe

1. When the day finishes, before going to sleep, go over all the events you just lived through and review all the decisions you took in the day, small and big, and accept both the good and the bad ones, but focusing mainly where your ego interfered with your good nature. Forgive any offense made to you, then pray for forgiveness of the offenses you have inflicted and put all events of the day in its true proportion, extracting from them all the lessons you can.

2. Take the decision of correcting the bad choices you made, so next time, you could do better than that. Forgive yourself remembering that perfectionment is a process, not a place.

3 As soon as you open your eyes, review again last night decision and plan your day accordingly.

4 Pray to God asking for help and guidance… not just for you but for everyone in the whole Universe. And don’t forget to feel and express your gratitude to our Heavenly Father for everything… even the apparently not so good things in your life… and smile. Again: There are lessons everywhere.

5 Keep on your watch all day long.

Do this for at least 21 days so you start developing the habit of being a good unselfish, loving “you”.

Next, just keep trying to be a wonderful loving creature for the rest of your life (both in the human and the spiritual sense)… one day at a time.


To sum up the recipe:

“Prevail over your own selves and the journey will be easy for you; then, you will be able to conquer the beast that John beheld in his revelation.”

The Third Testament

This way, you would not let your mind play tricks on you… on behalf of the ego.

The Quest for the Apocalyptic Beast – Part 1

This entry it's part of the The Quest for the Apocalyptic Beast series. Part 1 of 2

Getting to Know Your Enemy

The word ‘ego’ is defined by the Webster’s dictionary as:

1: the self especially as contrasted with another self or the world

2: egotism, self-steem

3: the one of the three divisions of the psyche in psychoanalytic theory that serves as the organized conscious mediator between the person and reality especially by functioning both in the perception of and adaptation to reality.

The first acception or generally accepted meaning of the word ‘ego’ is precisely what defines the main problem with it: It separates us one from another.

By confusing individuality with the ego, and by following the traditionally wrongful psychological assumption (now under fire by advanced pyschologists) that it is the ego the one that gives us our identity, there has been an immense brain-washing in the media giving a monstruous importance to the selfish personality, opposed to altruism, which is the one prerequisite to manifesting the wonderful spiritual virtue of charity.

The present chaos is the result of that massive brain-washing… as prophesied by our Lord since the first Israel prophets up to John’s vision as narrated in the Book of Apocalypse also known as the Book of Revelation.

It were mainly two prophets that anticipated the rising of the ego as the major enemy of mankind. The first was Daniel, in ancient Babylon, and the second, John, in the island of Patmos.

And both identified that mortal enemy as the beast.

Sure, that description is a metaphor, but, wow! How precise and self-explanatory that metaphor is.

The Drop of Water and the Ocean

So, how are we going to deal with our own existence, our own identity?

Well, take for example a humble drop of water in the ocean. Of course, it has most of the ocean attributes, not all of them, of course: A single drop of water cannot make a tidal wave by itself, isn’t it?

That single drop of water is, by itself, an individual, and it has an identity with which you can distinguish it from another quite similar to it. But it ocuppies a diferent space and position in that ocean.

Now, suppose that drop of water has a mind, and discovers that it exists; in other words, it has a self-awareness.

Is that an ego?

Not at all, because along with its own self-awareness, comes the awareness of belonging to something greater than itself, starting with its neighbouring drops of water.

And when its awareness expands and becomes a full awareness, it tells that humble drop of water that it is not “I” or “Me”, but that it is “Us”, and furthermore, it is “The Ocean”, giving that drop of water the sense of belonging, of being a part of something greater than itself.

Elijah, The Prophet of The Chariot of Fire

Who is Elijah?

Beyond doubt, Elijah of Tishbe is one of the most fascinating characters in the Bible. He appears unexpectedly in Book I of Kings without his parents being mentioned and it seems there is no story of his childhood.

But the importance of his role is fundamental: he is the forerunner signaled with all clarity in the Book of Malachi as the prophet who was to precede the Messiah on His first coming as well in the time of His Advent in the final time in this Third Era.

That he left an unerasable track in all the cultures of ancient times is suggested by the fact that the symbol of the chariot of fire, the sun that seems to be in flames, appears in the mythology of diverse cultures, such as in the Greek myth of Helios.

In the Gospel of Mathew, Jesus tells His disciples that Elijah, who was to come according to the prophecy of Malachi, at that moment had already come, and the disciples understood that He was talking of John the Baptist. In Luke 1:17, the angel that appears before Zacharias to announce that, regardless of the advanced age of his wife and him, a son would be granted to them by God, says irrefutabily: “…and he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah…”

Let’s review what Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist reveals in Luke 1:76 concerning this when he says: “… and thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways.” in clear referrence to the passage of Malachi 4:5,6.

But that’s not all: Further on, in Luke 1:78, Zacharias says : “…whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us…” The symbolic association of Elijah with the sun, the chariot of fire, appears also in Revelation 7:2 in the passage relating to the opening of the Sixth Seal when the prophet John sees “another angel ascending from the east…”

Coincidence? Maybe not.

Some scholars disagree about this analysis of the texts by quoting the passage where John the Baptist, when questioned by priests and Levites (in those times, the priests were kin to the Sadduceans) if he was Elijah, the prophet, he answers : “I am not.” But, of course! What else could he have answered? He was John the Baptist at that moment, but he had in him the spirit and power of Elijah, just as Jesus reveals it to the apostles later on. To understand this well, one must remember the passage of Isaiah 62:2 that reads: “…and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name…”

If those men had asked him, “Do you carry within you the spirit of Elijah? ” they would certainly have obtained an affirmative answer which another evangelist, Mark, puts in the lips of the Divine Master: “…But I say unto you, That Elijah is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they wished, just as it is written of him”(Mark 9:13) and Mathew 11:14 confirms it: “… and if ye will receive it, this is Elijah, which was for to come.”

Advent – The Second Coming of the Lord

…At last! The Lord came, as written in The Book of Revelation, as thief and although men of creed are still awaiting for Him, He already fulfilled His promise.

And the same as in the past, the Lord had chosen again to communicate through the humble and uneducated rather than the most learned; otherwise, His divine Word would not have been attributed to Him but to those highly learned and educated,

From 1866 through 1950, the Holy Spirit of God communicated with His chosen in many houses of prayer all over Mexico and in other countries as well.

It is written that in the final days the Lord shall return. The prophecies have fully became reality and the Day of the Lord is here. Behold the mystery unveiled..

The Prophecies of the End The Form of Communication
“…Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven”… (Acts 1:11)”Be ye therefore ready also; for the Son of Man cometh at an hour when ye think not”… (Luke 12:40)
“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him”… (Daniel 7:13)”…And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”… ( Matthew 24:30)

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him”… (Revelation 1.7)

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be earthquakes in diverse places, and there shall be famines and troubles; these are the beginning sorrows”… (Mark 13:8)
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come”… (Matthew 24:14)

“…I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come”… (Joel 2:28-31)
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. Even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because of it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him; for he dewllseth with you, and shall be in you”. (John 14:16,16)”…but the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”… (John 14:26)

“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.” (John 15:26)

“I have yet many thing to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbelt when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, shall he speak; and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:12)

 

The year of 1866 designates the beginning of an era of light, the Third Era.

Elijah, the prophet, came spiritually to remove the veil of mystery and introduce the period of God’s communication with mankind as the Holy Spirit. Elijah illuminated a man destined by the Father to be the forerunner. That chosen Roque Rojas, the Chosen One of the Third Eraone, named Roque Rojas, was he who listened from spirit to spirit to the voice of the prophet, who ordered him in the name of the Father to call and unite his brethren, because a Divine revelation was about to illuminate the destinies of humanity. Roque Rojas, gentle and humble as a lamb, obeyed the spiritual voice, answering: “God’s will be done upon me.”

Roque Rojas assembled a group of men and women of faith and good will, and there, in the midst of his first gatherings, Elijah manifested himself through the human understanding of the Envoy saying: “I am Elijah, the prophet, the same of the transfiguration on Mount Tabor.” He gave instructions to the first disciples, at the same time that he proclaimed to them the era of Spirituality and he prophesied that the Ray of Light of the Divine Master would communicate with His people soon.

On a day when the humble dwelling of Roque Rojas was full of faithful followers who believed the word of that man, Elijah descended to illuminate the mind of his spokesman, and inspired by the Holy Spirit, he anointed seven of those believers to whom he gave the representation or symbolism of the Seven Seals.

Damiana Oviedo, the first spokeman of the Third Era Later, when that promised moment of the communication of the Lord took place, from those seven chosen, only one kept vigilance awaiting the arrival of the Pure Spouse and that heart was that of Damiana Oviedo, the maiden whose human understanding was the first to receive the light of the Divine Ray as a reward for her perseverance and her preparation.

Damiana Oviedo represented the Sixth Seal. It was one more proof that the light of the Sixth Seal illuminates this era.

During the Second Era the Word found a woman’s endearing reception, a maternal love, and during this era, the promised lightning that came out of the east unto the west rested in the chaste and pure heart of Damiana Oviedo. Her maidenly tenderness was maternal for the people of Israel and through her guidance the Lord prepared the guides, spokesmen and laborers.

Fulfilled Prophecies – Part II

This entry it's part of the The Fulfilled Prophecies series. Part 2 of 2

In the first section we saw the prophecies from Jesus and Joel, in relation to the opening of the
Sixth Seal and
the Third Era, that have come to pass.

We will now see the prophecies from John related to the same topic and which appear in the
Book of Revelation or
Apocalypse, and which real name is the Book of the Seven Seals.

Apocalyptic prophecies about the opening of the Sixth Seal.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal,
and, lo, there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became black as
sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
Apocalypse/Revelation 6:12

So far John’s prophecy repeats the prophecies delivered by Jesus to His apostles before the crucifixion and that we have seen in the first part of this work.

But further ahead, even when it takes the allegoric view of the star shower that is part of the material signs that Joel had anticipated, the context seems to refer to something else: The beginning of the communications with the spiritual world, which prelude became Spiritism, so popular in Europe and some American countries in the middle of the last century.

One warning: In some Bibles, especially the catholic ones, a verse was added in Deuteronomy or Leviticus, depending on the version, against Spiritism, quoted even by its name, and this verse does not even appear in any of the original biblical texts. We can easily deduce that it was simply a reaction from the religious hierarchies of that time towards the attention that the Spiritism movement was getting from the beginning.

And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even
as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs,
when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is
rolled together; and every mountain and island
were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men,
and the rich men, and the chief captains,
and the mighty men, and every bondman,
and every free man
, hid themselves in the dens
and in the rocks of the mountains;
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us,
and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne,
and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come;
and who shall be able to stand?
Rev. 6:13-17

Here the scatological prophecy of John gets into a more abstract and metaphoric terrain, anticipating the beginning of the communication with spiritual entities which descend from on high to humanity. The appearance of new philosophies and thought currents are commonly spread after the fall of the monarchies.

The Stars of Heaven Fell

1840 Germany. Jacob Lorber receives messages through automatic writing which he called “the New Revelation”.
1849. Paris and all of Europe is in commotion because of the phenomenon known as “levitating tables”.
These would inexplicably elevate without apparent physical cause.
1850. Leon Rivail “Allan Kardec” takes notes of communications from what he calls superior intelligences, which manifests through two young ladies or “mediums”. He took notes during a period of two years and published them in the book “The Book of Spirits”, fundamental work for Spiritism.
1862. Roque Rojas, Mexican ex-seminarist has a vision that announces the imminent opening of the Sixth Seal.
1866. In Mexico, the beginning of the Third Era opens with the manifestation of the Prophet Elijah’s spirit through the human understanding of Roque Rojas.
1871. In Scotland, Daniel Dunglas-Hume shows manifestations that he assures come from the spiritual world, reaching to the point of materializing some of them in plain daylight. His works were never able to be refuted.
1884. Damiana Oviedo becomes the first spokesman of the Holy Spirit and begins the delivery of
the Third Testament, taking place in Mexico City.
1887. In Mexico City, the beginning of the manifestations of the spiritual world of light through human understanding takes place. This continues until December 1950. During all this time there are multiple healings. Time-Life has published a book that covers part of these astonishing events.

Heaven Departed as a scroll when it is rolled together…Rev. 6:14

This allegory is clear when it refers to the disappearance of the old order of ideas, being
replaced by a new one.
1762. Rousseau writes “Social Contract”, a master piece that has a decisive influence over the freedom movements all over the world.
1776. Adam Smith publishes “Wealth of Nations” and establishes the basis of capitalism.
1776. Proclamation of the Bill of Rights in the American Colonies from England.
1776. Declaration of Independence of these Colonies, establishing the United States of
America.
1781. Kant publishes his master work “Critique of Pure Reason”, and proposes rationalism as a theory.
1786. The Taking of the Bastille in France. The beginning of the French Revolution.
1789. Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen by the French Assembly.
1810. Mexico and the South American countries initiate independence movements.
1848. Marx and Engels deliver “The Communist Manifesto”
1866. The First International meets in Geneva. Socialism is born.

The kings and great men hide themselves…

The fall of the monarchies is anticipated in this verse. And in fact, by the end of the 19th century,
absolutism practically disappears as a governing system; there are some countries with kings and queens that have no ruling power and their position is merely symbolic.
1649. Charles II from England is executed.
1793. Louis XVI, deposed King of France, goes under the guillotine.
1832. England’s Great Reform Act transfers power to the common man, above the royal power.

…and every bond man and every free man….

Not only human power was moved; every social class felt the arrival of that new era.
1793. Robespierre restores the “Kingdom of Terror”, the guillotine colors with blood all of France.
1861. The opposition of the southern American states, abolition of slavery, the bloody Civil War breaks.

The opening of the Sixth Seal.

This is the period that Jesus describes as “the beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:7). As you will see, humanity entered a phase so turbulent as history has never recorded before.

And after these things I saw four angels standing on
the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth,
that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any
tree.
And I saw another angel ascending from the east,
having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to
the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the
trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed:
and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of
all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Rev 7: 1-4

And I saw another angel ascending from the east…

Since the times of Augustine, theologians and analyzers of the Bible agree that here, John is speaking about the Prophet Elijah, agreeing with the words from Luke 1:78 and 2 Kings 2:11. There is a hypothesis that the Greek myth of Helios came from this last verse.
1866. The spirit of Prophet Elijah manifests through the human understanding of Roque Rojas; he declares that it is the opening of the Sixth Seal as well as the beginning of the Third Era. The first “signs” are delivered to men and women who subsequently would bring forth the communications from “the stars in the sky”, the spiritual world of light.

After the sign, John’s report about his vision of the Sixth Seal seems to jump to Rev. 9:13, where the sixth angel represents the same seal.

And the sixth angel sounded,
and I heard a voice from the four horns of
the golden altar which is before God,
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet,
Loose the four angels which are bound
in the great river Euphrates
.
And the four angels were loosed,
which were prepared for an hour, and a day,
and a month, and a year, for to slay the
third part of men.
And the number of the army of the horsemen
were two hundred thousand:
and I heard the number of them.
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and
them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire,
and of jacinth, and brimstone:
and the heads of the horses were as
the heads of lions;
and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke
and brimstone.
By these three was the third part of men killed,
by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone,
which issued out of their mouths.
Rev. 9:13-18

Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates…

1981. Iraq and Iran, on each side of the river Euphrates, begin to war.

Fire, smoke and sulfur….

1981-1991. During a conflict where more than a million people died and more than two million are hurt, there were land to land missiles, land to air and air to land, as well as millions of rockets and mortars that were used by tanks with metallic armors on both sides, they truly looked like they were throwing fire and sulfur over the war zone, and the smoke columns are visible for several miles.

Fulfilled Prophecies – Part I

This entry it's part of the The Fulfilled Prophecies series. Part 1 of 2

Have the prophecies from the Bible regarding the end of times been fulfilled?

Some skeptics say no. Others, in blind faith because of their different religions or philosophies, believe that it is so…but they don’t really know, nor can they prove it.

But actually, several biblical prophecies that tell us about this era have been fulfilled…and there
is data to prove it.

The biblical language of the prophecies.

Probably, the most common reason for so much misunderstanding and obscure interpretations of the Bible is the fact that many of its writings are presented in an allegoric, metaphoric and symbolic language.

And why is this?

Couldn’t these messages from above had been delivered in a simple language without the need of metaphors or allegories?

The answer is no.

Human languages are poor to describe things and concepts far beyond the ordinary.

It does not matter which road you take to describe them, you will have to resort to the use of allegories, metaphors, parables and symbols, taking objects and ideas that surround ordinary people to make those things and concepts comprehensible at least in a figurative and, therefore, incomplete manner.

Simply speaking, this is why the messengers of the Divinity used symbols and allegories (flying scrolls, thrones, candlestands, oil vases, etc. etc.) to put in limited terms what is of an indescribably superior nature. Of course, we have to consider the cultural context of the recipient of the messages. With this in mind, is only natural to learn that, for example, the punishments and consequences for evil behavior for the Eskimos or the Laplanders would be described as a cold of a terrifying magnitude, while for the inhabitants of warmer zones, the more suited allegory is that of a burning fire.

Imagine someone asking you to transcribe “War and Peace” by Leo Tolstoy, using a typing machine which has four or five letter keys missing. Or try to play “Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony” on a piano that has three natural keys missing in each octave, let’s say, do, mi and sol. In both cases, your readers or listeners would have to rely on their imagination to deduce all that is missing due of the lack of enough elements to transmit that idea or concept.

After these examples, it will be easier to comprehend the reasons for that apparently obscure or ciphered language in which the prophecies about the Third Era were delivered.

An then, there is the problem of literal interpretations while reading the Scriptures, that leads to severe contradictions and dogmatism. Paul warns about this: “..for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”. (2 Cor. 3:6)

Take, for instance, John 3:13 where Jesus said that no man but himself has ever ascended to Heaven, and compare it with Hebrews 11:5, where Paul asserts that Enoch was taken bodily into Heaven. If you try to explain this following the letter of the Scriptures, you will have a very hard time. And there are many similar passages, where apparently the Bible contains contradictions.

The Prelude of a New Era

There are references in diverse passages from the Bible that, considering the explanation at the beginning of this page, are very clear and precise to describe the events that would be the prelude to the arrival of a new era for humanity, an era marked by great events of worldwide scale.

But, how we can be sure of that these are the times of the end? In Luke, Jesus gives the sign to recognize the time of the end.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come”… (Matthew 24:14)

We could easily deduce that the final advent is very close to us (if it hasn’t already started) when we see that through the modern systems of global communication, the Evangelist preachers (mainly North Americans) have reached practically every corner of the Earth with the Gospel. In fact, inadvertently or not, Billy Graham, a very well know and respected Christian preacher, made a crusade as few years ago exactly with this purpose, which had a very wide success.

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple:
and his disciples came to him to show him
the buildings of the temple.
And Jesus said unto them,
See ye not all these things? verily I say
unto you, There shall not be left here one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives,
the disciples came unto him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be? and what
shall be the sign of thy coming,
and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying,
I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
see that ye be not troubled: for all these things
must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences,
and earthquakes, in diverse places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Matthew 24:1-8

There are idiomatic expressions within the vernacular of the Aramaic and the Hebrew languages that change the meaning of the expression when they are translated literally. In the first century, after the crucifixion, many were waiting for Jesus’ return at the end of that century. Simon Peter, considered by many to be the prince of the apostles, clearly knew the meaning of that expression. This is how he explained to those who believed Jesus was returning at the end of the first century:

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
2 Peter 3:8

When Jesus warned His disciples about the arrival of false Christs and prophets, He gave a glimpse that His return was to be in spirit, which the following verse clears up even further:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
Matthew 24:23

According to this, we could be sure that the presence of Christ on Earth, at the end of times, was
not be expected as physical or material, but rather as spiritual, subtle, sublime.

Following is a description of the period that anticipated the opening of the Third Era and therein the Sixth Seal. From now on we will give you some references that were taken from the Encarta Encyclopedia by Grolier, which could be easily searched by anybody.

Plagues

The black plague devastated Europe in the 16th century and killed millions of people. In America, millions of Indians died from various contagious illnesses: syphilis, tuberculosis, etc., which were caught from the Spanish conquistadors. The Bubonic Plague also took millions of victims in Asia, in Asia, Africa and parts of Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Famines

Great famines during the 17th century devastated Europe, Asia and Africa;India lost more than 10 million of its people in 1769. Between 1845 and 1850 took place in Ireland what is known as The Great Potato Famine killing almost 2,000,000 people and in 1866, more than 1,500,000 people died in Ovissa!

Earthquakes

Terrible earthquakes have devastated many nations and areas of the world. Iran, Turkey, Greece, Argel, Japan and South America have suffered repeatedly massive destructions caused by these quakes. Lisbon was destroyed in 1755 by an earthquake that killed 60,000 people; Voltaire narrates this in his novel “Candida”. In 1812, the New Madrid earthquake altered the Mississippi River’s course.

War Rumors

It could be said, that after knowing the magnitude of destruction that humanity reached during the two World Wars, that the constant wars that spread all over the world since the invention of the fire arms in the 15th century were really rumors of genocidal wars that would come later. The 30 Year War, the 100 Year War, the Great War of Northern Europe, The Crimean War, the War of the Seven Weeks, the Civil War of the Ottoman Empire, the US Civil War and many more give funereal testimony of this.

Nation Against Nation

Experts say that the Russian invasion by Napoleon in 1812 started a new way to begin a war, not only because of religious motives between the small cities-state, but also because of secular economical and political motives among the great nations. The Franco-Prussian War, the Russian-Japanese war and several more; all of them were the prelude of a new era for humanity and ended at the First World War. A conflagration of such magnitude that humanity had never witnessed, but that was easily surpassed by the horrors of the World War II.

Signs for the opening of the Third Era and with it, the Sixth Seal.

There are several prophecies that describe this Third Era, prophecies that have come to pass in such a way that can be corroborated by anyone. Joel’s prophecy is particularly specific:

And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit upon all
flesh; and your sons and your daughters
shall prophesy, your old men shall
dream dreams, your young men
shall see visions:
And also upon the servants
and upon the handmaids
in those days will I
pour out my spirit.
And I will show wonders in the heavens
and in the earth, blood, and fire,
and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood,
before the great and the terrible day
of the Lord come.
2 Joel 2:28-31

Today, it no longer surprises anyone to learn of the multiplicity of visions and prophetic dreams that many people from any social condition, nationality, race and age, experience every day of the year.

This has provoked the creation of the new science of parapsychology, which tries to study these spiritual manifestations, which are so vast, that they are already seen like something natural, but at the same time they don’t stop being extraordinary events in humanity’s history.

But, what about the signs in the skies and on earth? Did they come to pass? When and where? Let’s see.

Prodigies in the Skies

1858, Comet Donati. The triple tail of this phenomenon covered 50 degrees of arc in the sky. It is calculated that this corresponded to lineal figure of 70 million kilometers!
August 1862. The first of two meteor showers (Perseids) observed from practically everywhere in the world; scientists explain now that they are a residue of Comet 1866 III and flared up when entering the earth’s atmosphere.
November 1862. The second – and notable- meteor shower, this one belonging to the luminous residue of Comet 1866 I.
1882, the appearance of a comet close to the sun, its brightness so unusual that it provoked wonderment and terror in many countries.

Prodigies on Earth

This portion of the prophecy could have a different interpretation from the natural phenomena when we realize the great and surprising advance of science and human technologies. The list of inventions and scientific discoveries since the 19th century is long, and we will only mention some of the more relevant.
1802. Fulton invents the boat with steam power.
1837. Morse invents the telegraph.
1839. Daguerre invents the first photographic camera.
1840. Cayley, considered by many the father of aviation, invents the first flying machines for passenger transportation.
1858. Marsh and Marsh invent the harvester.
1866. Tilston Bright installs the first transatlantic cable between the U.S. and England.
1866. Nobel invents dynamite.
1868. Glidden and Latham invent the automatic typewriter.
1876. Graham Bell invents the telephone. (It is also attributed to Elmo).
1877. Edison invents the phonograph.
1877. Berliner invents the microphone.

The sun in darkness and the moon in blood

1883. The explosion of the Krakatoa, the volcano between Java and Sumatra, is perhaps the most impressive material sign of all the ones that announced the arrival of a new era and the fulfilling of the prophecies of Joel and John in the Apocalypse. The night of August 27, 1883; the most violent volcanic eruption that is recorded in history took place, it destroyed the island where it stood and the consequences of such a disaster were felt all over the world; the gas cloud, dust and vapor were projected 27 kilometers into the sky, and the ocean waves or tsunamis provoked by the phenomenon reached more than 15 meters in height, reaching as far as 12,000 kilometers and killing thousands of people in the coasts of Java and Sumatra. The sound from the explosion is considered the greatest one in history and was heard in Australia and in the US Pacific Coast. The dense dust cloud emitted by the volcano, very much in the likeness of a 200 million tons nuclear blast, covered the sun light for over a day and after that, the moon looked like if it was painted red, very much like the color of blood. During the following three or four days, observers from all over the world reported bright strange colorations during sunrise and sunset due to the solar light refraction in the suspended particles of the dust cloud product of the explosion.

Q: In recent times there has been a lot of speculation about “contactees”, persons that supposedly are receiving messages from superior beings, extraterrestrials, aliens or UFOS, etc. Is The Third Testament part of this frenzy? And what about the New Age movement? Is the Third Testament related with any of this in any way

Q: Does The Third Testament belong to any religion or sect?

Q: I am very interested in cooperating to the spreading of the teachings of The Third Testament. Can I freely distribute copies of the texts or should I request for prior authorization?

Q: I understand that there are only two testaments in the Bible, the Old and the New. Where did a Third Testament come from?

Certainly, the Bible, as we know it in the present time only contains two Testaments, the Old and the New, but just as it happened before the arrival of Jesus Christ -when there only existed what we now know as the Old Testament, the first of the legacy of the Lord- as the divine inspiration followed through Jesus himself and His apostles, the new revelations became the second legacy of the Lord , which we now know as the New Testament. If we keep in mind that God is eternal, eternal also is His word and in this time of tribulation, is only natural that more divine revelations were to reach us. And the source of The Third Testament is the same as the other two: God’s inspiration.

Q: In John’s Book of Revelation 22:18 says “If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book”. How do you explain this?

The Third Testament is NOT an addendum to the Book of Revelation. First, Revelation’s verse refers only to the Book of Revelation itself, not to the whole body of revelations known as The New Testament. Secondly, the divine teachings of The Third Testament are not men’s work, they come from God Himself. And third, if John’s warning were in reference to new revelations, how then the promise of Jesus in John 14:26 and 16:13 could be fulfilled?

Furthermore, in the very same Book of Revelation comes the prophecy of yet another book! Please read Revelation 20:12.

And last but not least, if you think that the Bible contains already all of the divine wisdom, please remember the words of our Lord Jesus: “I have yet many things, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth…and he will shew you things to come”. (John 16:12,13) This time, promised by our Lord is now. And the Spirit of Truth came in a whole fulfillment of the promises of Jesus.


Q: When and where was The Third Testament delivered?

From 1866 a new stage to humanity was opened, an era foreseen by John and known as The Book of Revelation or The Apocalypse; 1866 marked the prelude for the beginning of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit through the human understanding of many men and women -“spokesmen” they were called- and these manifestations took place between 1866 and 1950, in different parts of the Mexican Republic mainly, but also in other parts of the world as well.

Q: In my religion nobody told me about any Third Testament. Why?

Even at this very moment, when the Gospel has reached all the corners of our planet fulfilling the prophecy that Jesus Himself spoke, still there are many religions that do not accept that divine teaching. Furthermore, the Jewish people still refuse to accept the Gospels and the New Testament as a part of their bible. It is not unusual then, that a new revelation from God would not be accepted by the established religions, which in the past refused to see or accept evidence pertaining to ideas that sound strange to them and prefer to hold to their traditions and history, denying that such revelations could come from the Divinity.

Q: Who wrote The Third Testament?

If you look carefully to both the First (Old) and Second (New) Testament, you can clearly see that God uses whatever means necessary to deliver His divine teachings to man. For instance, in the OT you would find not only the books attributed to Moses but also those writings of the prophets, the psalms of David and the advice of Salomon, etc. The NT contains not only the words and acts of Jesus but includes also the teachings received by His disciples, and actually, the most quoted part of the NT is that of Paul, who was not even one of the Twelve chosen disciples of the Lord. And the Book of Revelation was written at the end of the first century, very far in time and distance from the events that took place in Palestine, when Jesus walked on the face of the earth. Likewise, The Third Testament was received over a long period of time by many persons of the most different social and cultural backgrounds.

Q: Could we then expect also a fourth or fifth Testament?

No. First, it was the time of the Father, then continued the time of the Son and now, we are living in the time of the Holy Spirit. Three different manifestations of the same God, in accordance with the evolution and development of the spirit of man.

Q: Where is it written that God would manifest Himself not two but three times?

It is a widely known fact that God teaches us through prophecies, parables and metaphors. It is this superior form of communication that He took to make us aware of all the things that were to happen in this Third Era of His manifestations as Holy Spirit and Spirit of Truth, which has become to be known as The Advent, or the Second Coming of the Lord. The following are brief excerpts of different parts of the Bible related to this.


  • Gen. 18:1-2 “And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mam’re…and, lo, three men stood by him…and bowed himself toward the ground”.. It is in this passage that the metaphoric figure of the Holy Trinity appears for the first time, because Abraham, whom is referred by God as His friend, sees the Lord in the figure of three men.

  • Ex. 19:11 “And be ready against the third day; for the third day the Lord will come in the sight of all the people…” This is the first of several similar allusions to the three eras of divine manifestations.

  • Luk. 20:12 “And again he send a third: and they wounded him…” The allusion to the three envoys is very clear, although no names are mentioned…even the prophecy that neither the third envoy would be believed is also very clear.

  • Mtw. 17:3-4 And behold, there appeared unto them Moses and E-li’as talking with him (Jesus)…” Another reference to the envoys of the three different eras and here it is very clear whom those are. Please note also the presence of Elijah, who was prophesized by Jesus Christ himself to return in the time of restoration.(Mtw. 17:11)

  • Jhn. 16:13 “How be it when he, the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth…and he will show you things to come…” This is probably the most important prophecy regarding a new era of manifestations, anticipated by Jesus for the time of the end, which is this one in which we live in.

Q: Couldn’t this be the work of Satan?

Each and every time that a new manifestation of God descends unto men, they feel disturbed and historically, the priests of all eras have attributed those surprising manifestations to the forces of evil, because of their lack of understanding of them. Just as it happened to Moses before Him, Jesus was charged of being taken by demons as is narrated in the NT. And it is precisely Jesus Christ who answers that question that had arisen when a new manifestation of the Lord came: “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” (Mtw. 12:26). God is God and all good flourishes from Him. And if a teaching talks us of good, then this teaching comes from God. Could good come from evil?

And yes, as the prophecies are fulfilled, those who follow this third manifestation of the Lord will be accused of being deceived by Satan, demons or whatever name man gives to the force of evil. This also was prophesized by the Master himself when he said: “If they have called the master of the house, Be-el’ze-bub, how much more shall they call them of his household?” (Mtw. 10:25)

Q: We have heard of men alleging they are the Christ or saying they are envoys of God. Do they have something in common with The Third Testament?

No. We must be very aware because of these dangerous claims not only can confuse many, but also could possibly cause that the true divine revelations to be mistakenly mixed together with this falsehood. Jesus warned us about this: “And many false prophets shall raise, and shall deceive many…Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not”.

The true manifestation of the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with this false messianism. Many scholars, priests and ministers wrongfully believe that they will see Jesus in the flesh walking again over the soil of the Earth. A simple reading of the mentioned verse would show that to be misguided. On the other hand, Jesus is very clear when He explains how we shall expect that manifestation to be: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…and then they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”. (Mtw. 24:27,30″.

The true meaning of this word could not be more precise: it is the lightning, not thunder, that symbolizes the light of above shining through the darkness, and the symbol that the new coming of the Lord was not to take place in the east, but in the west, through the spiritual communication of the Lord with the mind of man, which has the power to elevate to “the clouds of heaven” in order to be able to receive the divine inspiration.

Q: Why was The Third Testament delivered in Mexico? Why in Spanish? Would not it be more appropriate that God delivered His revelations in a more developed country?

It was prophesized since the beginning that in the end of time (this one) God would take other people as His rather than the Jewish people. Read the following: “…and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people, and they shall say, Thou art my God” (Hos. 2:23/Rom. 9:25) and with remarkable forcefulness, God reveals through Isaiah: “I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name”. (Isa. 65:1) Reading and understanding this is easy to deduct that the Jewish people would be no longer the treasurer of God’s new revelations. And that the Lord’s manifestations in this era were not to be in Judea is very clear when the following verse is studied: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…”. (Mtw. 24:27″

But, does this necessarily mean that Mexico, a little and underdeveloped country, is the chosen place for the Second Coming of the Lord? Let’s see. When Jesus explains to His disciples where is the Advent to take place, he said to them: “For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together”.(Mtw 24:28) The national symbol of Mexico has always been, even before the arrival of the Spaniards, an eagle devouring a serpent -itself, a very spiritual metaphor: the high devouring the low- and considering, besides, that in the Mexican Valley there is a great variety of this magnificent bird. And in the OT we find another prophetic verse in which the Lord warns the Jewish people that because of its defiance, He will chose another people, and in this prophecy appears, again, the symbol of the eagle: “The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth as swift as the eagle fleth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand.(Dut. 28:49).

“…a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand”. In this verse not only the Lord anticipates that in the time of the end He shall take another nation as His people, but also that that other people would speak a language totally unknown to the Jewish people. And not only that, in the following verse the use of another different language is clearly implied: “…for with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people…” (Isa. 28:11)

Finally, it is proper to remember that in His past communications, the Lord has never chosen powerful nations to deliver His messages and teachings. On the contrary, He always pleased in chosing the humble and the poor to be the receivers of His divine inspirations. Jesus emphasizes this by saying: ” I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes”…

Q: In recent times there has been a lot of speculation about “contactees”, persons that supposedly are receiving messages from superior beings, extraterrestrials, aliens or UFOS, etc. Is The Third Testament part of this frenzy? And what about the New Age movement? Is The Third Testament related with any of this in any way?

The communication of the Holy Spirit through human understanding dates from the past century (1866), long time before the popular psyche was to be impacted by sightings of UFOs and phenomena of this kind. And even then, the spokesmen that received those divine revelations made it through elevating their mind and intuition, even before Alan Kardec’s channeling experiences. The thing that still amazes many that have studied the Third Testament is the fact that, even though those revelations were received by very humble persons (many of them illiterate peasants), the language and concepts that their lips poured were of such a sublime and superior nature, that makes it unthinkable a conspiracy or a fraud. Regarding the New Age movement, even though there are some things in common -such as the awareness of a new time for mankind and the acceptance of the law of reincarnation- The Third Testament is far more than a movement or an organized new cult or religion: It is God’s own legacy to humanity, regardless of age, color, race, nationality or creed, it is the Divine Doctrine at its best.

Q: Does The Third Testament belong to any religion or sect?

No. The Third Testament is a legacy of God to humanity and does not belong to any group, religion or sect. It is a divine heritage to all God’s children regardless of race, creed or nationality. But we must bear in mind that in The Third Testament it is prophesized that a major religion would make an attempt to appropiate this treasure claming that it was delivered in her congregation and once again, try to make a material profit out of it and to retain her temporary power . And all this should be in vain.

Q: I am very interested in cooperating to the spreading of the teachings of The Third Testament. Can I freely distribute copies of the texts or should I request for prior authorization?

Even though the compendium and abridged version of The Third Testament is protected by international copyright laws, and only because human laws required it so, in reality these teachings belong to humanity present and future as a whole, and it is because of this that the printing, copying, distribution and reproduction of the Third Testament is not only hereby fully authorized, but any further spreading and diffusion of its contents is strongly encouraged, with the only restriction that the original words and text should be respected and the source be rightfully quoted as well.

Roque Rojas – Biography of the chosen of the Third Era

Roque Rojas

Who was Roque Rojas?

Roque Jacinto Rojas Esparzawas born on the 16th of August, 1812, in Mexico City, in the Republic of Mexico located in the American continent.

Within Roque Rojas several cultures merge, for his father, Manuel Rojas, was a descendant of Sepharadic (Spanish) Jews, and his mother, Dolores Esparza, was of Otomí (a native American tribe) origin.

To fulfill the requisites of the Catholic religion dominant in that region of the world, his parents baptized the small child and the name of the Catholic priest who baptized him was Filogonio Quezada.

Years later, an orphan to his mother, his father Don Manuel and his Godfather Juan López Montiel, enrolled him in the Seminary of Mexico, for they wanted him to pursue the career of priest, but he could only study there for three years because when his Godfather died he had no economic means to continue his studies.

He went back to live with his father and learned twenty-two trades: printer, engraver, cabinet-maker (ebonist), watchmaker, painter, etc.

He got married in the village of Zumpango de la Laguna in the Mexican province, to Ms. Guadalupe Arias Malanco with whom he bred an only daughter, Carolina, living a harmonious life together which was filled with love towards others .

On the night of the 21st of June, 1861, at about 10:00 o´clock a vision awoke him and the extraordinary events that marked his way for the rest of his life took place: the angel Gabriel indicated that he move to a certain place in the South of Mexico City where he would receive instructions and messages from God to carry out his mission as a forerunner of the manifestation of the Spirit of Truth amongst men.

Fulfilling the Divine Orders, Roque Rojas, simple and kind, suffered from persecution of civil and ecclesiastic authorities as well as the lack of comprehension of his own people. (see “1866”)

On September the first, 1866, Roque Rojas received for the first time the communication through human understanding of Elijah, the prophet of the First Era. (see “1866”)

In 1869, Roque Rojas considers his spiritual mission accomplished and dies 10 years later, on the 18th of may, 1879, in the house marked with the number 18 on the streets of Niño Perdido (today Eje Lázaro Cárdenas) in Mexico City.

1866 – The Dawn of the Third Era

The Prelude

In the book “Memories on facts about Roque Rojas and several other anecdotes about his ancestors”, dated in the year 1914, the author, Gregorio Baldomero narrates the prelude to the beginning of the Third Time.

“From the eve of the 23rd to dawn of the 24th day of June, 1861 (sic) Don Roque Rojas had been very busy with matters pertaining to his profession of Civil Judge; he went to sleep but at about 10:00 p.m. was awakened by an “Angel” with golden wings who had appeared before, and who said to him: “Elijah, Elijah, you are the promised one and hence have you been chosen to be the Strong Rock of Israel, such is the meaning of your name, and I, Gabriel, have come to inform you that you must rise from your bed and walk behind the place known as The Calvary to arrive at the floating islet located at Maria Petra’s abode, and there shall speak to you he who has ordered me to see that you accomplish that which I now tell you”….

“Hastily did Roque don his clothing, going out to the patio of the house where he realized that a beautiful moon illuminated the entire land which was in absolute silence. He then left the house and went towards the canal where he boarded a canoe…he started rowing in the direction of Maria Petra’s islet; upon coming close to the woman’s humble abode, he perceived the sound of a bird from a treetop. Mesmerized, he stood still listening to the chirping of the bird…”

“All at once before his eyes appeared a pale golden triangle, at the bottom of which a sun with a human face in a deep red with yellow beams started to emerge and the light it gave out seemed to illuminate with such force that it looked like the gleam of a radiant dawn…”

“…he raised his head and just beyond the triangle he spied a dove in flight like a snowflake from whose peak crystal-like drops seemed to fall and as they fell over his head they bathed his whole body with luminous light…”

“…suddenly from afar he heard the blare of a trumpet blow three times and heard a loud voice say these words: “Upon you shall the Spirit of Elijah promised for these days be manifested”…

“…and he saw a hand emerge from the triangle and touch the land three times with a wand and from above the powerful voice said unto him: “This say I to you in my name, for I am the Father”.

“And at the finish of these words, again from afar he heard the trumpets sound three times, to his right, and heard again the powerful voice say: “This say I to you in my name, for I am the Son”.

“Having finished uttering these words, he saw a cross descending from the heavens, alight on earth, and once again disappear to his left and again heard the powerful voice say to him: “This say I to you in my name, for I am the Holy Spirit”.

“And upon listening to these last words he heard a sublime music and saw that the dove alit upon his head and disappeared; the hand with the wand again touched thrice upon the earth and he heard a multitude of voices sing: “This is the coming of Elijah the promised one”.

“And I, Gregorio Baldomero, do hereby write this grandiose passage from the life of don Roque Rojas, exactly as he told it to me”.


 

September 1, 1866

Drawn by that vision, Roque Rojas congregated a small number of people who, convinced through a multitude of testimonies that he had indeed been chosen by God to accomplish a great mission , they congregated frequently in Roque Rojas’ humble house of prayer.

However, at the meeting which took place on September 1st, 1886, it unexpectedly came to pass that Roque Rojas entered into a state of ecstasy and firmly pronounced these words:

“I am Elijah, the Prophet of the First Era, he of the transfiguration at Mount Tabor; prepare yourselves because the Seven Seals are being made known to you and the doors of mystery are being opened so that you may contemplate the path to your salvation. This is the word of God pronounced in times remote by His prophets.

In the manuscript “Dawn of the New Advent of the Lord. The Messenger”, published in 1970 by the enclosure “El Redentor” under supervision of Eneida R., sources of the XIX Century are quoted and the following is narrated:

“On the First of September, 1866, 7 people who would remain at the head of the first seven houses of prayer are named, who were the representation (symbolism) of the Seven Seals because of the gifts that each one received”
(See “Damiana Oviedo, The First Spokesman”) .

“Possibly it was on that date that Roque Rojas made known to the congregation the divine revelation on which the Commandments (delivered through Moses) were merged with the maxims of Jesus and the teachings of Elijah in one law alone, whose revelation having been received by the messenger since the 23rd of December, 1862.

The Seven Seals of the Book of Revelation (Apocalypse) and Armageddon explained.


The divine explanations of the mysteries contained in John’s Book of Revelation and the Seven Seals: Prophecy, Armageddon, Elijah the prophet, the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures, Jacob Ladder. the path of evolution and perfection of the spirit, the Sixth Seal in which we are living in.


The Seven Seals: The Mystery Revealed
The Mystery Unveiled

Prepare yourselves for you have been given the knowledge of the Seven Seals, and the doors of mystery have been opened so that you may contemplate the path of your salvation. Behold the word of God fulfilled, pronounced since remote times by His prophets.

Be it known that there is joy in the celestial mansions and that it is the Divine Master, the Sacrificed Lamb, whom John beheld in his revelation, who has opened the Sixth Seal with his most powerful and perfect hand, and with it, the Third and last of the eras.










Preface

In the beginning of time, I, as the Father, inspired in man the practice of righteousness. However, men departed from the Divine mandates, falling into idolatry and abominable acts before Me. The strong triumphed, the weak perished, and man took woman as a slave.

It was necessary to convey to Moses the Commandments of the Law on Mount Sinai. In that Law were also the norms and precepts by which the people of Israel should be guided, and in these they were told: “He who kills, will have the same sentence pronounced upon himself. He who steals will make restitution to his brother. He who causes harm shall pay an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”

The Second Era came to pass, and I manifested Myself in Jesus to live among you, and in My word I said to you: “If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the left. Forgive your enemies.” And during the Third Era in which you live, I have come to say to you: If your father’s killer, being persecuted by human justice, were to knock at your door begging for help, what would you do? Protect him. In so doing, you would demonstrate that you have reached the spiritual evolution, which enables you to comply with the Divine mandates of your Heavenly Father who commands you to “love one another”; to “resurrect the spirits who have died to the life of grace, for every spirit will be saved.”

Today I come to speak to your spirit and to reveal to you the content of the Seven Seals, the book of your history, of prophecy, of revelation, and justice.

The Book that was sealed in the Heavens, has been opened in the Sixth Chapter; it is the Book of the Seven Seals (which men call Book of Revelation or Apocalypse), which contains wisdom and justice, and which was unsealed by My love for you, to reveal to you its profound lessons.

It is I who have come to tell you, that today you live in the period that pertains to the Sixth Seal.


Man has lived five stages on Earth, encouraged by the divine breath of the spirit, even though he has not understood the spiritual meaning of life, the objective of his existence, his destiny, and his essence. All was an inaccessible Arcanum, as much for his mind, as well as for his spirit. A sealed book, whose contents he was unable to interpret.


He vaguely perceived the spiritual life, but without truly knowing the ladder of ascension that draws all beings closer to God. He ignored his highest mission on Earth, and the virtues and gifts that form a part of his spirit, in order to triumph over the struggles, to rise above human miseries, and perfect himself spiritually to dwell in the eternal light.






The Spiritual History of Mankind


Today I come to speak to your spirit and to reveal to you the content of the Seven Seals, the book of your history, of prophecy, of revelation, and justice.


Your spirit has written his history and his journey in the book of the Seven Seals. There, noted down by Me, are all your actions, each one of your footsteps, thoughts, and words.


The great deeds of your spirit, the great vicissitudes and journeys, his great trials, his chalice of bitterness, all is written there in truth.


That “book of the seven seals” is the anticipated history of the existence of Humanity, because only God could write the history of men before they would live it; and that book being clothed in mystery, for its contents to be revealed to Mankind, only one hand could open it, a holy and pure hand, a perfect hand, and that was the one of the “Lamb”, the one of God Himself, the one you knew through his teaching and his sacrifice in the Second Era, a sublime sacrifice of love; it was the only one worthy of opening that book, because there was not on Earth, nor in heaven, nor in space, nor in any other world, a spirit that could be worthy of opening and revealing the book and its content to the spirits.

Each one of the Seven Seals represents one of the seven stages of the spiritual path through which all the spirits must travel to reach their destination, which is God.

Your spirit will be learning what those seven steps are, which form part of the infinite number of steps of the ladder that Jacob contemplated in his dreams: the Ladder of Perfection of the spirits.

The ladder of spiritual perfection which leads the spirits into the bosom of God, has an infinite number of steps, but those seven are the most important ones, of major significance; those seven stages which the spirit must cross along his journey of struggle, of evolution, of trials and a crucible toward perfection. They are a reflection and very clear example of the human life of incarnated spirits.

Here, within your own planet, without regard to race or culture, all men are governed by periods of time of seven days, and in your human history you have also had a journey and a spiritual existence of seven stages, from the first which had the knowledge of the true God, the living God, God the Creator, to the end of time.


The “seven seals” are your life, they are your history, your struggles, your triumphs and falls, your sufferings and battles, and at the end, your redemption, filled with glory, filled with hymns, filled with spiritual feast at the right hand of your Lord, in His own bosom; but there have been confusions among My people, and after those confusions I have not found true preparation in My spokesmen so that I as Master, as the Holy Spirit, can remove them from you.


Your spirit has lived long, but your flesh does not know it. If your body has forgotten the first years of your infancy, how can it recognize the evolution of your spirit along the lengthy journey?






The symbolic signification of number seven


In all periods, in all eras, in all the ages of Humanity, there has always been the signification, the meaning of the Seven Seals, although in symbolic form.

In the First Era, Israel experienced a great lesson in Egypt: during seven years this country enjoyed a great abundance, then was followed by seven lean years which had been announced by Joseph, son of Jacob.

In the far-advanced First Era, the people of Israel had seven great prophets.

When the Master was among you, He delivered the seven great parables of the Kingdom, and when He was hanging from the cross on which the incomprehension crucified Him, He bequeathed, as His last divine testament, the seven words.

Behold that always, from the First of the Eras to the last, the symbol of the Seven Seals has been present and latent in the spirit of Humanity.

When the eleven disciples were left without their Master, they extended, across the face of the Earth, the seed that He had entrusted to them: the seed of love, and they, along their journeys through Asia, founded seven churches, seven congregations that they visited, and when this was not possible, they ministered to them through doctrinal letters.

Those Seven Churches of Asia were also an image, a figure of the Seven Seals.

In that same period, one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, permitted to reach an old age by divine will, was deported to an island and, in his loneliness, his spirit drew close to the Father.

Great was the spirituality that he attained and there, far away from the materialism of the world, he was able to hear the voices of the Arcanum and look into the Great Beyond.

John contemplated the One who is sitting on the Throne, holding in His Hand a great book sealed with Seven Seals.

In front of him also stood an angel, who spoke to him saying that neither in the Heavens nor on Earth was there a being worthy of untying those Seals or opening that book, and John, on hearing these words, cried with great distress.

But then he saw that a Lamb drew near, and was the one opening that book, untying its Seals from the first to the last.

That is the way John’s vision began and what you call the Apocalypse; it was he, the first one, who spoke to Mankind about the Seven Seals; the apostle, the prophet, the spirit of great elevation, the disciple of Jesus, the advanced disciple of the Holy Spirit. He wrote what he saw and heard, and what he saw and heard were symbols and figures.

The sealed book with the Seven Seals is the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, and within it is found written the destiny of all the spirits, and the destiny of the people of God, Israel.

That book was closed, its content was a mystery; not even the great prophets, nor the theologians, nor the just of the first eras, knew the existence of that book, nor its name and much less its content.

Who, then, could open that book which is the wisdom of God Himself, and is the beginning and the end, the origin of all the spirits, and within which is written the lifetime of evolution, struggle, and perfection of all the spirits?

Who would have the spiritual capacity to open that book and show it as the light of the Universe?

Nobody, only God Himself, the sacrificed Lamb, Jesus the Messiah, in whom Christ incarnated in the Second Era. That is how He brought close to man the kingdom of the Heavens, so as to make them feel their Father more intimately, nearer and accessible. In this manner, God showed man that the love of the Father is before anything else; that the divine Spirit is the Universal Love, the same that governs and gives life to all things.




Man and mystery


The spiritual disciple should always seek the essence of My deeds, so that he may discover the truth in My Divine messages. You will then see how simple it is to find the meaning of all that which some enshroud in mystery, and others complicate with their theology.


Spirituality means simplicity. Why then complicate what is simple, clear, and translucent as the light?


He who truly knows, is humble of spirit. He is not proud with the knowledge of the Earth, aspiring only to know it all and denying all that he has not been able to understand. He who carries within him the light of the inspired knowledge, knows how to receive the revelations at the proper time, as well as being able to wait for them. Many have called themselves wisemen, and it has been a mystery to them that the sun shines day by day in broad daylight.


Many have believed to know it all, and truly I say to you, that the ant, which imperceptibly crosses their path, holds for them a very profound mystery.


Men may be able to investigate many of the marvels of Nature, but while they do not do it through the path of the Divine love, they will not attain the true wisdom; that which is contained in the immortal life of the spirit.


Men, come close to Me; you need not upset your mind trying to discover secrets and mysteries. You only need to open your heart with the key of faith.





Past, present and future


The time will come when the human heart and mind, purified and tested in spirituality, will be able to receive, through intuition, the voice of their own spirit, when they will know how to receive with clarity and purity all the revelations that the spirit will transmit to the flesh.


At this time you still cannot contemplate the past of your spirit through your human life; nevertheless, the Father comes to say to you: How very long has your journey been! How very much has your spirit struggled to hold himself up along the way! How very much has he been hurt by the thorns of life and how many stretches along your path have been marked by the blood of your footsteps!


It was necessary for the Divine book to be opened, for man to behold its contents, so that they would be able to save themselves from the darkness of ignorance, which is the origin of all the evils existing in the world. Who could open that Book? By chance would it be the theologian, the scientist, or the philosopher? No, no one; not even the just spirits could reveal to you its contents, because what the book contained, was the wisdom of God.


Only Christ, the Word, only He, the Divine Love, could do so. However, even then, it was necessary to wait for men to be fit to receive the Divine revelation, without becoming blind with the splendor of My spiritual presence.

Humanity had to live five stages of trials, of lessons, of experience, and evolution, to reach the right development that would permit it to know the mysteries that the Arcanum of God held for Mankind.


This is the awaited era for the great revelation, the one through which you will understand all that I have manifested to you throughout the eras and for you to learn who your Father is, who you are, and what is the reason for your existence.


This period, whose dawn you admire in the infinite, is the sixth stage which begins in the spiritual life of Humanity; an era of light, of revelations, of fulfillment of ancient prophecies and forgotten promises.


It is the Sixth Seal, which on being unsealed, overflows its contents of wisdom upon your spirit, in a message filled with justice, of enlightenment, and of revelations.


For you it is the sixth stage; it is the Third Era, in which I have spoken closer to you as I did during that First Era, when I materialized in many forms, My presence and My word, as in the Second Era, in which I humanized My Word to speak to your heart.
Behold that the light of the Sixth Seal is illuminating your spirit. The book is opened, because from the First to the Sixth, the Seals have been uncovered. I am uniting those who will bear My mark, to entrust them with a very delicate mission. At the end of this phase, I shall receive those who have fulfilled it, and, to those who have disobeyed or altered My mandates, I will make very grave charges, and My word will deal with them severely.

You shall see false communications attributed to Me, rumors of divine envoys who bring messages to the world, sects with the name of the Seven Seals, and many confusing and undefined sects.

All of that will be the product of the great spiritual confusion which Humanity has been preparing, but do not be alarmed; and you shall not succumb in the confusion, because My word in the moments of greater darkness, shall be the light that will make you contemplate My truth, transparent and everlasting.

Do not be confused, because before the conclusion of the now opened Sixth Seal, great happenings will occur. The heavenly bodies will give great signs; the nations of the Earth will bemoan, and three parts of this planet will disappear and only one shall be spared, in which the seed of the Holy Spirit will emerge like a new life. Humanity will begin a new existence, united in only one Doctrine, only one language, and one same bond of peace and fraternity.

The last part of the Book is still missing; the Seventh Chapter, which still remains sealed. When that seal is broken, you will receive the last lesson from Spirit to spirit.

The light of the Sixth Candlestand illuminates all men of this period, but the five previously untied Seals, already passed, also left behind their light in all spirits.

I come in spirit during this era. My light descends upon man like tongues of fire, so that they will be able to speak of My law in all languages.

I am bequeathing a new Book to humanity, a new Testament: My Word of the Third Era; the Divine voice which has spoken to man as the Sixth Seal is unfolded.




The 144,000 chosen ones


One hundred and forty-four thousand incarnated and discarnated spirits will open the way during this period. They will be forerunners, prophets, and messengers. They are the ones marked by Me to go before the multitudes.

To these chosen ones has been revealed the name of the tribe to which they belonged during the First Era, so that they may realize that since then, they made a covenant with their God, and have followed the path of the Father long ago; but during this period all names of the tribes have disappeared, for it is not the Lord who sets boundaries to divide men.

Your presence before this manifestation has not been by chance. My voice summoned you along the pathways and guided you here. Now you know that you have come to recognize the mission that you have to fulfill on Earth. In My word you have learned what is your beginning and what is your ending. You have had the revelation that you are a part of the people who have received the manna of the spirit during three eras.



The Book of Life

When the Seventh Seal has been closed along with the other six, that book which has been the judgment of God over the deeds of men from the first to the last, shall remain closed.

Then God will open a book with blank pages to note therein the resurrection of the dead, the liberation of the oppressed, the regeneration of the sinners, and the triumph of good over evil.

The light of the Sixth Seal illuminates at this time, and all the incarnate and discarnate spirits, while some on Earth take this law for the progress and salvation of the spirit, others take it to penetrate into the mysteries of science to discover new material marvels; those are the profane and disobedient hands who even cut the fruits from the tree of science to poison the heart of humanity.

You are living in the Sixth Seal which humanity is journeying on Earth as an image of the path it must travel in eternity.




The Envoys

In the first stage I was represented on Earth by Abel, Noah in the Second, in the third Jacob, Moses in the fourth, Jesus in the fifth, in the sixth, which is the present, Elijah, and in the seventh the Holy Spirit will reign.

What have you done with My envoys?

The first fell under the blow of his own brother, motivated by jealousy.

The second was mocked and rejected by the incredulous and idolatrous multitudes.

The third lived giving proof of My power, and in exchange, received the ingratitude even from his very own.

The fourth broke the tablets of the law, due to the little faith of his people, whom he loved so much.

The fifth, having had his coming announced, was not awaited for, nor believed, nor loved, and after delivering to the world, his message of love, received from mankind the most ignominious death that any prophet or envoy had ever received.

The sixth has come in spirit at this time; nevertheless, the cutting remarks of doubt, of indifference and scoff pursue him.

When the seventh Seal is unsealed and instead of an envoy, be the very spirit of the Eternal who illuminates mankind, who will attempt to injure Me or give me death?





The Opening of the Seventh Seal


After receiving your fruit, after showering you with blessings, I say to you: The spiritual cannot die, only sin will disappear. The passions will die, the arrogant powers of this Humanity will also fall, and of them, not a stone upon stone shall remain of them. The human science placed at the service of evil and extermination, will be destroyed by My justice.


I will also abolish your falsehood, your unpreparedness and disunion, and I shall only preserve your spirit, in whom I have deposited the light of the Sixth Seal, of that Chapter which has been opened in this period, and in which it was written that within it you would find the great day of divine judgement of the Lord.


This is the great day and it is not composed of twenty-four hours, because the day of judgement you do not know how long it will be prolonged; you do not know when it will terminate, but you are truly in the culmination of these times, and you are living under the judgement of the Lord.


What signs shall I give you so that you can recognize, worldwide, that the Seventh Seal shall open for man? When a great silence has been made in the Universe, that shall be My sign.


And how will that silence be, oh My people, with which you can testify, before the astonished Humanity, that it is the end of a stage and beginning of another?


When the wars have ceased for a moment, when the elements have calmed down, when the persecution of My Laws and My Doctrine has stopped. Then, there shall be like a great silence among Humanity and that silence will be the announcement that the Seventh Seal is opening to reveal to Mankind its mysteries. That is the last part of the Book that will be made known to you; that your spirit will possess so that he can know the Father and learn about himself.





SYNOPSIS: The Third Testament and The Mystery Unveiled. The Seven Seals of the Book of Revelation (Apocalypse) and Armageddon explained. Seven Seals contain the most meaningful stages of human history, its knowledge clarifies the mystery that have surrounded them since John delivered his prophecy contained in The Book of Revelation. In that book, also known with its Greek name, Apolcaypse, the prophet foresaw events linked to the spiritual development of humankind leading to perfection (as symbolized in the vision of Jacob’s Ladder), but not before passing thru sour stages of catastrophe and destruction of what we call modern civilization (World War III) and Jugdment Day symbolized in Armageddon.
