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.

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.

Youth – Inspiring teachings about youth

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 34 of 40

I speak directly to the youth in order to guide them along the uncertain path of their lives, for I perceive them as fragile boats in the midst of an enraged sea. Those in their youth are the most distant from me.

While man is still a child, he prays and thinks about God. He does the same when he reaches the summit of his life and has begun to descend, as does the sun that sets at dusk. However, when his heart is like a bird that is anxious to fly, and his flesh vibrates when touched by the temptations of the world, he feels strong, and then he departs from the Divine teachings.

The blessed innocent become contaminated with the wickedness of the world. The young, journey at a wild pace, and the young women have also lost their modesty, chastity and decency; all of those virtues have departed from their hearts. They have nourished themselves with worldly passions, and they desire pleasures that only leads them toward the abyss

Depart from the many temptations which entice you during this period. Pray for the sinful cities where so many men and women become lost; where many sanctuaries are dishonored, and where many lamps become extinguished.

Flee from vices so that your blood will be a fertile seed, and the fruits of tomorrow may be pleasing.

Young people: Do not chain your spirit with the false splendor of the world. Be free but within the freedom granted to man by My laws. Do not sow suffering, so that you will not harvest that seed.

I inspire the hearts of the adolescents, young men and young women, in order to form new generations.

As of today, prepare yourselves so that your new role in life will not surprise you. Prepare today the path that your children will travel tomorrow.

Young women, from whom the generations of tomorrow will emerge and give testimony of My truth: persevere in prayer and in virtue.

Honor with your life those who, because of my will, gave you your existence and tomorrow your children will honor you.

Spiritualists

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 33 of 40

The spiritualist is a disciple of the Holy Spirit, my first-born.

How easy it is to say: I am a spiritualist, but truly how hard it is to be one. When you understand My teaching and practice it, then you shall be worthy of being named spiritualists.

The spiritualist is not the one who enters the houses of prayer where I impart My inspiration to you. He is the one who prays spiritually and elevates himself at any place. He is the one who struggles toward the perfection of his spirit. He is the one who lives to lessen other people’s misfortunes. He can be anywhere, and will be recognized more for his actions rather than his word.

He must be an example of love, humility and charity, for not everyone who professes to be spiritualist, really is. He will not seek anything for his own benefit, instead he will be at the service of others.

Make yourself known for the generosity of your heart, and that humbleness be reflected through your actions. The gentle heart is also gentle of the spirit. The arrogant and the vain feigns to be strong, but he is weak in spirit.

As spiritualists, you must relate with love to your fellow men, whatever their religion. In this manner you will testify that you have been prepared by Me and your noble actions will reach all the hearts and all those who reason without egotism will understand you.

If you find differences when comparing the way in which your brethren practice their cult and the form that you follow, do not dwell judging the external and you must know how to penetrate deeply where the truth exists. If you are spiritualists, think that you must always search for the spirit and not the external forms.

Thus if you should come to understand your brethren, very quickly you will discover that every man advances along a different pathway, but that all paths converge at the same point which is the pathway towards the light, towards the truth and the life.

You now see that only carrying in your spirit the knowledge of My Word is not sufficient, as the most important part remains behind, and that is to put into practice My teachings. That is the evidence that you must demonstrate to show how much you have learned from My Word.

It will not be necessary that you pronounce My name frequently. On the contrary, the less you pronounce it, and the better you practice My lesson, you will have given the greatest of your testimonies.

The noble aspiration of the future spiritualists will be to exchange faults for positive qualities; those who will arise towards a superior kingdom over the ruins of human existence. You will be brothers who will be understanding, humble, simple, noble and charitable. You will be strong, but not arrogant. You shall not humiliate the weak. 1f you possess great knowledge of My doctrine, you shall never make a display of your knowledge so that your brethren will not feel belittled around you.

Truly I say to you, that if pride germinates within your heart, you will not be spiritualists. The illuminated spirit cannot be satisfied with small vanities that only flatter the egotistical heart.

My Doctrine does not make the spirit come to a standstill. Neither does My Doctrine hold back the evolution of man. On the contrary, it liberates him from fears and prejudices, and makes him contemplate the path of light that awaits him.

There should be peace, faith, charity, forgiveness, smiles, understanding, indulgence and tenderness, in order to spread them as a balsam upon those who suffer.

The spiritualist of tomorrow will be recognized not as a mystic, nor as the religious one who withdraws from the world and from men, in order to pray. Rather, he will be one who is able to struggle against temptations, and even in the midst of a storm, will be able to distinguish the pathway of truth. He will know how to confront a prepared world, and his word as a prophet and seer shall announce what is to come.

The spiritulists will not construct temples of stone, nor altars to proclaim their deeds. They will erect a great spiritual temple, whose stones will be the hearts of mankind, in unity with one another, through the strength of love.

My apostles of the Second Era never believed in material worship, in order to teach and explain My doctrine. Their hands never erected altars, nor did they construct palaces for any spiritual worship.They imparted health to the sick; hope and comfort to the poor, the forlorn, and, like their Master, they showed the lost the road to salvation.

The spiritualist says: “How beautiful life is.” The profane, the materialist says: “How bitter, how sad, and how somber life is!”

When the spiritualists multiply on the Earth, there will be many who will confuse them with vulgar fortune-tellers and they will draw near to ask them about the future. The men of science will ask them concerning the life of the spirits, and about life in other worlds or planets.

I predict all this so that when you see yourselves besieged by foolish questions, you will remember that you should pray so that your Father may inspire what you have to say, whatever His will is to express before the foolishness or curiosity of your brethren.

Truly I say to you: How very much the theologians have confused Humanity, but I give you My light to save, redeem, and elevate you, truthfully saying to you, that it will not be your mind which will reveal these teachings to the spirit, but rather, the spirit who will reveal to the human mind, the spiritual and divine knowledge. That is why your Father says to you: It will not be the theologians, but rather, the spiritualists, the true disciples of the Holy Spirit, the spirits who will learn to communicate and be in contact with My Divine Spirit, to hear My voice and feel the caress, the fortitude, and the lull of your Father.

The “Tower of Babel” still stands, certainly, but it is also true that the spiritualist people are already emerging in the world, and their mission is to begin to destroy the foundations of that tower of divisions, differences, and pride.

Preserve My word, oh blessed people, and keep in mind that it shall be the solid foundation of a new tower that men will raise, but not the tower that will symbolize human pride, nor the one that will defy the divine power and justice, but the immaterial tower that will symbolize the spiritual elevation, the love, the charity, and the harmony among men.

Today the world ignores you, but truly I say to you, that the day will come when the nations will be waiting anxiously for you. That shall be when the great trials and the calamity will begin to be felt on the countryside, and when it will be known that the spiritualists have the power over the plagues and the strange diseases.

There, on their beds, will be the sick, waiting for the arrival of the emissary and laborer of Christ, who will come to anoint them with the balsam of tenderness and charity. There will be the homes with their doors open, waiting for the disciples who, with their presence, shall bring about the peace and the light into those hearts.

The Sick – Spiritual help for sick people

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 32 of 40

Those who are ill, come to Me. I will heal all spirits and physical bodies.

Come to Me, sickly ones. I will make you feel the gentle love of My charity. I come to take away your bitterness in order to convert you into children of peace, of light, and of faith. You ask Me why I have come to you? Because I see that you have forgotten the pathway where you should return to the bosom from whence you emerged, and I have come to show it to you again.

There is no reason to be sick if you fulfill the law. Life is health, happiness, joy, and harmony. By being sick, you cannot be a deposit of the Divine belongings.

I shall uncover a fountain of light existing in you, within your spirit, so that you may come to it when it becomes necessary; if you are able to seek it, you will find its waters.

I am the light of this and all the worlds. I want you to clothe yourselves within that light. My Word is a healing balsam; by listening to it you will restore your health.

If God is within you, why are you sick, and why do you suffer and weep? Examine yourselves and correct whatever needs correction, cleanse whatever must be cleansed.

I said to you: “Cleanse the inside of the cup, that the outside also may be clean”; in other words, that your interior being harmonizes in the will and inspiration with the material you, or human part.

Not only in the body do you find illnesses; these are purifications of the spirit, which burden the matter. However, if the spirit is cleansed, if he is pure, then the Father removes the purification, because it is unnecessary, and thus you shall find relief in the matter, to the point of attaining perfect health.

The Father creates His children to perfection. He did not place impurities within creation; it is the spirit who is gathering discord and wickedness along the pathway, a wickedness that is reflected in the heart and makes purification necessary, which is pain; not because the Father wants it so, but rather because you have caused it, and that is not the will of the Father.

Take into account that the illness you bear in spirit is many times greater than the one you suffer in matter.

What can the Father deny to His child, when he spiritually approaches Him to ask for something for his small and fragile body? Why do you suffer, weep, and become ill if you have God within you?

The one who feels his body weary due to suffering, asks himself if he has made bad use of it. And repentant, he questions Me in order to find out how to regain his strength which will permit him to continue to struggle. Then I say to him: Penetrate deeply within My word and in its precepts, and each one will find the teaching he needs.

Of what value would it be if I were to heal your illness or free you from your suffering, if you were to continue with the cause of your suffering?

Everyone come to me and be healed of your ailments; allow your faith to produce the miracle of restoring your health. You will produce the miracle, not I, but do not forget that you no longer need to touch My tunic in order to receive that miracle; now you need to come before My Spirit through your faith and elevation.

In the Second Era, I told those who believed in Me: “Your faith has saved you”. I said that because faith is a powerful healer; its light not only destroys darkness but it is a force that causes change.

Those who have believed have not always awakened to faith at the first moment. Almost all have experienced an inner battle. I have discovered that they have asked these or similar questions in their heart: Could this be true? Could it be possible that I will find the presence of the Lord in this place? Could it be possible that my illness, considered incurable for so long, will be healed here?

Truly I say to you that the impossible does not exist. In simple matters such as your ill health, speak to God with true faith, trusting in His presence. God, who dwells in each one of you and knows that which you need and what you feel, will give to each according to His will.

I am your Doctor. Truly I say to you that no one watches over your health as l do, and no one feels your suffering as I feel it.

Thus as you listen to Me speak, your fibers most sensitive to pain are touched. If you invoke Me as Doctor, I will approach to heal you for I am the Doctor of Doctors.

Spirituality

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 31 of 40

Spirituality will bring the awakening to the dormant gifts or faculties and the sensitivity to all the fibers of the heart.

Spirituality means harmony of the spirit and the flesh. It is the level of elevation which permits man to conceive ideas far beyond what his mind foresees, and have power over the material.

Spirituality means development of all the faculties of man, those which correspond to his human part, as well as those which vibrate far beyond the senses of the body and which are the powers, attributes, faculties, and senses of the spirit.

Spirituality is the just and good application of all the gifts that man possesses.

Spirituality is harmony with everything that surrounds you. It is the knowledge of eternal life and, if you manage to harmonize with Creation, you will have found one more form of spirituality, for you would be living with My Laws.

You will recognize that you are not only substance but also essense, because you will learn that when the life of man terminates, it is not the end of the pathway for the spirit.

Spirituality means freedom of the spirit which will allow you to feel a great love for God. A man spiritually prepared by My doctrine will be able to realize superhuman deeds, and from his spirit and from his body will emanate light, power and strength which will permit him to realize that the human intellect alone is unable to carry out. Moreover, it is elevation of thought, purity of deeds and of words, an elevated and generous life.

In spirituality there is no room for fanatism, prejudice or superstition. When you suceed in practicing it, then you will understand the importance of life. You will contemplate its beauty, and you will discover its wisdom. Then you will surely realize why I have called it life. Therefore, you shall be in the condition to comprehend that in its spirit the Kingdom of God exists.

Spirituality is elevation of the sentiments, purity in life, faith, love for others, charity, humility before God and a profound respect for all the spiritual gifts received. And, in order to begin the luminous journey of spirituality, you do not need symbols, only light, faith, will, power and love. If you have love, you will reach great heights; if you have faith in Me, you will not stumble during your life time. The faculties of healing, speech and persuasion, which are within you, will be developed, and all shall be toward the progress of the spirit.

How can you obtain spirituality? By praying from spirit to Spirit; by striving to be just in all your actions; by practicing charity with your brethren. When you live in that manner, the spirit is free, and he will guide the steps of man, illuminated by the light of his conscience.

Spirituality will guide man toward perfection, and when he has obtained it, he will no longer say: Father, give me sustenance, give me intelligence, give me material riches.

The spirituality, which is My own Kingdom, approaches with long footsteps like those winds that come from the north, razing everything, shaking all the trees, agitating all the forests, knocking at the doors and lashing at the faces of all beings; likewise spiritualism comes, like a strong wind of light and love, a wind that drags and razes it all, and it will come to establish itself in the heart of man, in the heart of all the institutions, in the bosom of all nations and of all the human races. It is My Kingdom, the reign of the Holy Spirit, reign of spiritual elevation, of peace and love.

True Spiritualism

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 30 of 40

Spiritualism is the doctrine of all times. It means the spiritual knowledge of the divine; knowledge of a superior life, which is far beyond all that is matter. It is the doctrine revealed by the Divine Master during the Second Era, and is the basis of all religions; the same which during these moments of discord, I have come to remind humanity so they will not forget its principles.

I have called My Doctrine spiritualism, because it teaches the elevation of the spirit and reveals to man all the gifts that he possesses for his perfection.

This is My Doctrine; therefore, do not permit it to be confused with those sciences and practices through which men seek only the manifestation and materialization of the spirits.

Spiritualism is not a new doctrine that comes to achieve the evolution of the beliefs of past eras, no; it is the same revelation of the First and Second Eras. It is the basis of all religions, the one that, in these moments of division, I have come to remind Humanity, so that it will not forget their principles.

Spiritualism doctrine is not a religion, nor a sect, and certainly not a novelty.

There is no need for material symbols nor rituals. It is a continuation of the doctrine Jesus left in the Second Era, and has nothing to do with traditions or religious ceremonies, for it is above every external worship. This external worship of mankind has been, during all eras, the cause of a spiritual standstill.

You can say with certainty that Spiritualism is the most elevated revelation that God has made for man, because before entrusting you with this knowledge, the Father first made you live two Eras during which He prepared you for this one in which you now live.

Spiritualism is destined by the Father to be extended all over the Earth, because the evolution of Humanity will allow it to be comprehended. It is the light that the world needs; it is the lesson that, without knowing it, every spirit yearns for.

Because spiritualism has a universal mission to fulfill it will be the one to reveal to all of mankind the true life. It is the spiritual doctrine that transform the world. This knowledge I am imparting to you has no limits; it is universal; it is infinite, and within it you will find the true knowledge of the spiritual and the material life.

My divine teaching is a superior science that will teach you to perfect the spirit. In addition I have given you a mind and a heart so that there in you can enhance your inspiration and your sentiments. It teaches you to communicate directly with the Father, and is the revelation which speaks to you about the life of the spirit. Moreover, it teaches you the elevation of the spirit and reveals to man all the gifts that the spirit possesses for his perfection.

Spiritualism is the Law of all ages which dictates what is good, pure, perfect, and the obligation to obey that Law which is for all, but does not force any one to comply with it. Each spirit enjoys a freedom of will, so that his struggles and all his actions, while being judged, may be taken into account on his own merits.

Spiritualism is not new, nor does it pertain to these times; rather it has been a revelation which has been unfolding in accordance with the evolution of humanity.

My teaching during this period comes to awaken the spirit of mankind which has slumbered for a long time, and comes to destroy customs and traditions imposed by men which have delayed the progress of the spirit.

Spiritualism is the revelation that discloses and teaches you everything you posses and carry along with you. It makes you recognize that you are the work of God; that you are not only flesh and that there is something beyond your physical body which elevates you about that level of nature which shelters you, and for the lowliness of your passions as well. Spiritualism shall not have its basis on earth, nor will it represented by a man. Its government will not be of this world, and your only guide shall be the Christ through your conscience.

Spirituality and Science

This entry it's part of the Humanity series. Part 29 of 40

Am I by any chance the enemy of science? Am I an obstacle for the progress and evolution of My children? He who believes this, has not known how to interpret My word. He has not comprehended the Father in his truth, because any gift or faculty that is found within man must have a development, because evolution is a universal law.

Men still have not as yet fulfilled on Earth their greatest deeds; those which would give My heart of a Father, a Divine satisfaction. Many of his marvelous deeds, within human life, still result insignificant, if their authors were to judge them with My laws of love. There you have the reason why many men of science do not wish to peer into the spiritual, because they know that there exists the presence of the One who knows all; of the One who sees and judges all. They prefer to deny My existence, believing that by doing that, they will silence the voice of their conscience.

Do not believe that I judge My children wrongly for wanting, in fact, to know the mysteries of Nature. No, My wisdom is a Divine heritage that I have for My children; but I do judge their objective, or the intention of the men of science, when it is not directed toward the purpose for which it was revealed.

If I say to you, that My wisdom will be yours, do you believe that only one existence would be sufficient to learn all that I have to reveal to you? If I say that you could not acquire the human science without traveling the extensive road of evolution, much less will you be able to acquire the knowledge of the spiritual without a complete evolution of your spirit.

I do not come to put into conflict spirituality with science, because that error has been by men, but never mine. On the contrary, I come to teach you to harmonize the spiritual with the material; the human with the Divine; what is temporary with the eternal. However, I declare to you that in order to travel through the roads of life, it is necessary to know beforehand, the path outlined by your conscience whose spiritual law comes from the Divine Spirit.

Men who study God do not agree. Who holds the truth? Men of the sciences contradict themselves. Who is right? Religion and science have always been in conflict, without men understanding that the spiritual and material live in perfect harmony and with it they create the true work of the Creator.

How many anathemas have religions cast upon science and how many times has science denied religion the existence of the spiritual life! Religion bases its attacks on the evil brought upon mankind by science, and science use as a weapon the fanaticism and superstitions that the ministers of the religions have instilled in mankind. Truly I say to you that in some there is the need of knowing the truth of what nature encompasses, and for others to justly interpret My law.

If scientists who move and transform your world were inspired by love and goodness, they would have already discovered all the knowledge I have reserved for science during this Era and not that minimal part for which they have greatly become so vain.

The true wise man is not the one who stays awake trying to discover the best way to destroy, to dominate and to annihilate but he who elevates himself to create, to harmonize the life of human beings, inspiring himself in the love towards the God of all creation and in the love for all creatures.

Men that believe to be wise seek the cause of all that exists and occurs, and hope to demonstrate with their science that there is no principle or truth outside of Nature. But I contemplate them as small, weak and ignorant. Then, where are the true wise men?

As time passes, men tend to love the terrestrial more because their science and their discoveries make them feel in a kingdom of their own, a world created by them. They have extended their dominions. There are no longer continents, lands nor oceans unexplored. They have devised ways on land, the sea and the sky, and not satisfied with what they possess on their planet as a birthright, they probe and scrutinize the sky in search of greater domains and declare they have found the truth.

I say to you that no one knows the absolute truth, since that part that has been revealed to man, he has not been able to grasp it all within his mind. Many marvelous things have been discovered and created by science, but man has not done it all because I placed in him the elements of life.

In this way you will understand that man is not the creator of life nor the elements, and that he simply transforms and uses what is already created. Creation is God himself and the time will come when men who ignore the bond that exist between the Creator and man, will understand that all that man does he takes from the Divine power.

Why have you forsaken Me and have attempted to compare your power with Mine? I say to you that when a wise man creates a being similar to you and provides him with a spirit and a conscience, I will place my scepter on his hand. Can man with all his science create something that I have done? Human science has its limits and God has not Science is light but in the hands of many men it turns into darkness.

If you have heard that I condemn the work of scientists; that I caution science, this is because that source of life has not been used for the good and progress of mankind but have placed it in the service of evil and destruction.

I bless the desire for knowledge and am infinitely gratified for their ambition to become great and strong wise me~ But what my justice does not approve is the vanity with which many times you base your ambitions and the egotistical objetives that are sought occsionally.

What do you want Me to say concerning the wise men of today, of those who provoke nature and challenge the forces and the elements? You have familiarized yourself in such a manner with evil that you call those who build the new lethal weapons great, because they can destroy millions of beings in an instant. And you even call them wise men. Where is your faculty of reasoning?

The men of this Era become amazed when they discover that their world is older than what it was thought to be by the first scientists. Question the wise men and if they are sincere, they will say that they have asked God for inspiration. And I would give them more if they would ask Me with the love towards their brethren and less vanity towards themselves.

How much shade and how much fruit has the tree of life and of science given to man! Then, why is it that now that in the world exists an evolved Humanity, it seems blind, provoking the same elements which have given it life and is shaking the tree which has never denied it the fruit of wisdom?

I will tell you why: It is because man has ceased to pray, and on ceasing to pray he has forgotten all that corresponds to the life of the spirit. Once dedicated to the life on Earth, his greatest ideal, his greatest ambition, has been to be powerful, wealthy, wise, absolute lord, and all this has dragged him towards the abyss, because he has gone in pursuit of a transitory glory.

What do you want Me to say to you about your wise men of today, those who provoke Nature and defy the forces and the elements, making Good appear as though it is bad? They will suffer great pain for cutting and eating a green fruit from the tree of science, a fruit which could only have ripened with love.

I truly say to you, that after this Era of materialistic, egotistical, and perverse science, a time will come when the men of science will know how to penetrate into the arcanums of Nature, spiritually prepared with prayer, enveloped in humility and respect, inspired in ideas and noble, elevated, human intentions.

The Stone Age is already long gone. The era of science will pass on, and then the era of the Spirit will come to flourish among men.
