Religious Fanaticism thwarts the spiritual Development
The Book of True Life –
The Lord says:
1. Beloved disciples: I come to confirm to you that all I said to you during past Eras is being fulfilled; in the same manner will it be fulfilled what I have prophesied in this Era through the faculty of man. This is the reason why the faith has been revived in these multitudes who from the beginning came to scrutinize My Word to prove if it was true that the Divine Master was delivering His lesson of love to His children. They later dedicated themselves to the study and analysis, and then to convey this Doctrine to Mankind.
2. You begin to love all that is worthy of your heart, cleansed of passions, and of your spirit, and insensibly you are leaving behind the love of all that you had previously ambitioned in the world. Thus the Spirit of Truth speaks to you in this period in which He manifests His Word through inept, humble and sinful creatures. You have risen in the most remote corners of the cities and villages, small and impoverished houses of prayer, and in them have congregated the multitudes, eager to listen to My teaching.
3. In that Era men heard Jesus speaking in the villages, in the riverbanks and in the countryside, until the moment came when My Work had to be consummated, and I entered Jerusalem, the city whose name will always be associated with that of the Master; however, those people never allowed me to leave, not because they loved Me, but because they were to put to death the One who brought to them the message of greater teaching than what up to then they had received from their Lord.
4. Now Christ says to you: “I am the Door of the new Jerusalem; blessed is everyone who through it enters the white and holy city, because neither will he come out of it; but not because he will find death; on the contrary, there he shall find the eternal life.”
5. Meanwhile your physical bodies will descend into the Earth, in whose bosom they will intermix and make it fertile, because even after death they will retain their vitality and life; your conscience which is over your being, will not remain on Earth, but will come with the spirit to appear before it, like a book whose profound and wise lessons will be studied by the spirit. There your spiritual eyes shall be opened to the truth, and in an instant you will be able to interpret all that during a lifetime you were unable to comprehend; there you will know the significance of “being sons of God and brothers of your fellowmen”; there you will understand the value of all that you may have possessed. You will experience sorrow and repentance for the errors committed, for the time lost, and from you will emerge the most beautiful resolve to do better and to make amends.
6. It was necessary for Me to come during this period, with a more complete and extensive teaching to clarify mysteries and destroy darkness in order for you to learn all about the gifts with which your Father has endowed you. Without that knowledge and without that development, you would have been unable to come close to Me, and you would always be navigating along your sea of uncertainties.
7. The gifts and powers that you possess, you have not been able to take advantage of them due to your ignorance, but if they have become manifested in any of My children in a spontaneous or natural form, it never fails that someone will judge him as abnormal or attribute to him occult sciences or evil powers.
8. Poor Humanity who having as a God the true God, does not know or understand Him, just as they have not been able to know themselves, because over their eyes they carry a veil of darkness, due to their religious fanaticism, for that impure and imperfect worship which has always been an obstacle toward their elevation and evolution. But I, who am the true and only Shepherd of the spirits, in order to take them to the mansion indicated by My charity, have come in search of the strayed sheep to guide them toward the path of light which leads to the heavenly fold.
9. For that purpose I have come to manifest to you a new page of the Book of the True Life.
10. I have not come to take anything away from you; on the contrary, I come to leave you everything. It is still not the time for Me to come for the harvest.
11. I am teaching you to cultivate the land with My Divine lessons, and when you have progressed in the analysis and knowledge of My Law, you will make it known to your brethren with the testimony of your deeds of love and charity. From eternity I shall follow your footsteps and keep watch over your sowing and when the time is right you will present your harvest to Me.
12. You live in a time of trials; there is not an hour of the day when you are not submitted to some ordeal. Under their burden, the profane blasphemes and the surprised disciple asks himself: Why, if I am following the footsteps of the Master do I feel overwhelmed by the weight of my ordeals? And the Master answers you: He who follows Me will carry a cross and the closer he accompanies and imitates Me, the most bitter will his cup be, because without trials, what would you be? When would you reach Me?
13. The glory of the spirit is for those who carry upon their shoulders the burden of their cross and have an expression of forgiveness for the ones who offend them, a comforting word for those who suffer and a hand which blesses whoever crosses their path.
14. Those who will attain grace are the ones who on their painful path in their life, upon falling are able to get up with resignation, and without throwing away the cross of their mission, will reach the summit of the mountain with it. These will have imitated the Master in their life, and will be with Him in His Kingdom.
15. Do not believe that Christ, for having been God made Man, bled and died without feeling pain during His agony; verily I say to you that the pain of Christ was real and there has not been a torment that will equal it before or after; it was so intense in His flesh that His own body cried out: My God! My God! Why have you forsaken Me?
16. You will also be offered the chalice of pain. Do not reject it because you will never be given a trial superior to your strength!
17. I am awakening you with My light and I will likewise awaken the religions with the truth of this Word.
18. My charity has illuminated each spirit during this Era, and from them questions and uneasiness have surged. Men and women rise in search of enlightenment because they feel like stranded victims in the midst of the storm.
19. From the men of science lost in the sea of life to the primitive in understanding, they sense the arrival of the new Era. How many of those men while searching for Me, will run into you to ask what you were taught by the Master! Not all will come with gentleness; there will be some who will demand proof in order to believe and others who will threaten you. That is the time for which you must be prepared, that will be the occasion to earn merits before your Father.
20. You shall speak the way I taught you; there will not come forth from your lips eloquent words without essence that men use; allow the humble, simple and sincere word to emerge from your lips, and it will touch the fibers of those whoever receive it. Also make yourselves worthy that I may reveal to you the mysteries that My Arcanum holds the moment they come to light. Be strengthened in Me, do not turn back for anything. It is not My will for men to close your mouth through intimidation and thus silence my people.
21. Evaluate the ordeals that you have experienced so that you will not fear those which are to come! You triumphed over the pharaoh, you passed over the idols that you previously worshiped as if they were your God; you forgot the traditions to become devoted to the Law; you rejected religious fanaticism and in that struggle your spirit has been tempered.
22. Do not give your body a greater importance than it really has, nor allow it to occupy the place that only corresponds to your spirit.
23. Understand that the physical body is only the instrument that you need so that the spirit manifests himself on Earth.
24. You will rise clothed with humility toward the fulfillment of your mission, and you will be surprised to see how a mysterious force is disposing and preparing it all along your way. Thus, when you are about to deposit the seed of My Doctrine in some heart, you shall discover that before you approached him, he was already prepared and ready, and for that reason he was able to receive the seed in his bosom.
25. Do not be intimidated before the sterility of the fields in this period. Do not be discouraged if upon sowing a seed you discover that beneath the soil only stones exist. Fight against those same stones. I am providing you with the tools; have faith and I promise to manifest Myself there where you need Me.
26. Be watchful, because men will prepare themselves and unite in great and strong groups without knowing the reason why they are doing it; but you know that they rise in search of the Third of My revelations; in search of the One who promised them He would return. They will seek the light in the previous testaments expecting to find a word confirming their belief that this is the time of My return as the Holy Spirit.
27. Men interrogate Me and they say to Me: “Father, if you exist, why do you not manifest Yourself among us, since in other times you have descended to our mansion?” Why do you not come now? Is our iniquity today so great that it prevents you from coming to save us? You always sought the lost, the blind, the leper, of which the world is full today; by chance, are we no longer inspired by your compassion? You said to your apostles that you would return among men and that you would give signs of your arrival, which we believe we are contemplating; why do you not show your Holy face?
28. Behold men waiting for Me without being aware that I am among them. I am before their eyes and they do not see Me. I speak to them and they do not hear My voice, and when for an instant they have a glimpse of Me, they deny Me; but I continue giving testimony of Myself; and I keep on waiting for those who have been waiting for Me.
29. And in truth, the signs of My manifestation during this Era have been great; the same blood of men, shed in torrents, saturating the Earth has marked the period of My presence among you as the Holy Spirit.
30. Everything was written in the Book of the Seven Seals, which is found within God and whose existence was revealed to Mankind through John, the apostle and prophet. The contents of that Book, only the Divine Lamb has revealed it to you, for there has not existed on Earth or in Heaven, a just spirit who would be able to clarify the profound mysteries of love, of life and justice of God; but the Divine Lamb, who is Christ, broke the Seals which comprised the Book of life to reveal its contents to His children. And now Elijah was sent as the representative of the Third Era, and as forerunner of my communication among men to prepare your spirit to understand this revelation. He is the One who placed the first stone of the temple of the Holy Spirit and who revealed to you that you were living during the Era of the Sixth Seal, and that all those who listened and contemplated these manifestations, would remain as witnesses before Mankind, to whom they would convey My truth, manifesting with their deeds the reality of My manifestation.
31. The first faculties through which this light was manifested were prepared by My charity; but in order to be worthy of My manifestation, they prayed and persevered in their faith with respect and elevation. Among them is My son Roque and My servant Damiana, spokespersons, through whom the arrival of the Third Era was announced to Mankind; first, Elijah through Roque and later the Divine Word through Damiana. And I began to call the sons of Israel and to point out the chosen ones of each tribe.
32. Since then, some of My children have tried to extinguish this light; but truly I say to you that no one will be able to do it, because the light of the Sixth Candlestick comes from God; furthermore, those who have wanted to fight against that light have revived its flame.
33. Now then, study My lesson and tell Me if all these prophecies would have had their fulfillment in the bosom of some religion.
34. With a word of love and of life, I have come to teach you a more perfect worship, and you have found a new communication with your Father, which prepares you for the perfect communication of spirit to Spirit.
35. The gifts that the spirit possesses were being unveiled to you, and you comprehended that possessing an inheritance, you were not aware of it. I persuaded you of My presence, granting you the benefits which only My charity is able to give, both in your physical health as well, as in your morale, along the path of your existence, because only the light of faith will allow you to reach the end of the road of your spiritual restitution.
36. Today I receive from each one of My children his offering and his petition.
37. Put aside the weariness from your spirit and from your body, because you still have to travel and work. The time of suffering has coincided with that of My arrival, therefore you are not alone. How much rejoicing will those experience who counteract the suffering in their lives with the practice of My Doctrine!
38. During this period your heart will learn to throb with love for others, because you will recognize one another as truly brothers in God. The hand of the one who loves will be strong enough to lift the fallen. The rock that feels the touch of My charity will flow water unceasingly.
39. Nowadays the lips of the sons of these people still remain silent to announce that Christ, the Rabbi, has returned; but your silence must not be prolonged because tomorrow you shall weep your disobedience.
40. Truly believe that your deeds will remain as a seed for the future generations, and because of that you have had to pass through the crucible of pain to be purified in order to understand the gifts that I have given you. Many of you had to bathe in the waters of purification. The mind of the spokesman, the heart of the one who had to guide multitudes; the hand of the one who had to heal the sick; the spiritual vision of those who had to penetrate the Hereafter to prophesy, all were cleansed.
41. The pain, the chalice of bitterness and the ordeals in your life, have given you temper to withstand the struggle that approaches, because truly I say to you that your faith, your spirituality and your patience, will be put to the test by Mankind. I not only say this to whoever is listening to Me, but to anyone who, even after the period of this manifestation would arise and pick up his cross to follow me.
42. Be clothed with gentleness, compassion, humility, so that you may be recognized as My disciples. If you truly behave as disciples of Jesus, the same pharisees, when they approach you, concealed under a disguise to surprise you, will be the wolves who will become converted into gentle sheep in the face of your example.
43. I have come to save you with My light; there is not one who today can say that he is saved. Verily I say to you that if at this time I would offer you salvation in exchange for a just person, you would be lost, because you could not present to Me not one single just person.
44. Mankind is stranded in the midst of a storm of sins and vices. Not only does man, when he becomes an adult, contaminate his spirit, allowing the development of his passions, but also the child, in his tender infancy, sees the danger of sinking of the boat in which he sails. My word full of revelations arises in the midst of this Humanity, like an immense beacon which shows the stranded victims the true route and encourages the hope of those who were losing their faith.
45. It is written that every eye shall see Me, because spiritually all will know My truth; the blind will open their eyes to the light and contemplate Elijah who guides the multitudes before My presence. The unbelieving world will see itself overwhelmed by these kinds of testimonies, surprises and trials, and while some deny Me brandishing the scriptures as proof, others will rejoice, because they will behold the arrival of the hour of fulfillment of many prophecies which I announced through the mouth of my prophets and through the lips of Jesus.
46. Those who in the bosom of their churches await for My arrival, do not even sense in what form and where I am communicating, even though My manifestation was being felt by means of numerous happenings. Like lightning which emerges in the East and is lost in the West, that is how My arrival has been; but the vibration and the reflection of My Spirit have remained among you transformed into a human word, so that you may understand who was the One who knocked at the door of the hearts of men and why were the signs given.
47. I have wanted to communicate through humble faculties, because they, while free from prejudices, cleansed from erroneous interpretations of My Law, were the designated ones to transmit My Word with greater purity. This Word will be debated heatedly by Mankind, even if people would want to place upon it a veil of indifference, because it will be during this period, the only one which will give light over many mysteries and over much confusion.
48. Truly I say to you that after 1950, I will touch with My power and My justice all the rituals which are celebrated in the world, and if their ministers and pastors will not awaken in the face of this warning, I, availing Myself of the children, will speak to them. In the same way that the nations have been touched by My justice, likewise will the different religions be touched. Every crown, every scepter, every title and hierarchy shall be judged.
49. O My people: Where do you keep the words and teachings which I have brought to you with so much love? Behold that this Word has been the Divine caress with which your Father has come to awaken you during this period. Or perhaps are you going to wait for the unleashed elements to come to awaken you from your sleep?
50. The Father does not wish to appear before His people with demands but rather to bless their deeds, but still the intention of regeneration does not surge from among you, and the fact is that you have not been able to understand all the love that your Master has shown you, rescuing you from the scum to clothe you with His grace.
51. Do you not hear the voice of your conscience which says that you are the disciples of the Third Era? Heed that voice and arise. Your Master has already shown written evidence of His passion, His Doctrine and His example within the heart of Mankind, the Law which you must follow. The apostles, those martyrs fought for the preparation of the seed of My Doctrine; now you fight for the benefit of the generations of tomorrow, because from them you will gather the ripe fruit which will give peace and happiness to your spirit.
52. Let it be the love toward your God, the charity toward your brethren and the longing for perfection, which will lead you toward the practice of My teachings. Let it not be the pain or fear of my justice what you need to feel impelled to work, because then your merits will not be truthful before Me.
53. Let other nations awaken to the new Era as they contemplate regions devastated by the waters, nations destroyed by war and pestilence annihilating lives. Those people, conceited in their knowledge and lethargic in the splendor of their religions, will not recognize My Word through this humble means, nor feel My manifestation in spirit; therefore, the Earth will have to be shaken first, and Nature will say to men: “The time has arrived and the Father has come among you”. In order for Mankind to awaken, let them open their eyes and accept that I am the One who has arrived; first the power and pride of man will be touched, but you have as your mission to be vigilant, to pray and to prepare yourselves.
54. Someone says to Me in his heart: Father, how is it possible that since you love us so much, you make us feel your justice in that manner? To that I answer: If My justice would not answer your actions in that way, you would become lost irrevocably. If I allow suffering to pass on to you and also death, it is because the pain purifies and death regenerates the spirit. How is it that you should not endure a chalice of grief and death, since you yourselves have created it? Truly I say to you that pain and death in the flesh are less terrible than what the spirit feels through remorse or for the grief of having offended His Creator with his faults.
55. You are listening without understanding. Do not leave all the burden of comprehension of My Word, be on the spirit, be it on the flesh, without each taking the part which truly corresponds to each one; it should be the conscience that will dictate what belongs to one and the other.
56. When you see that I have come to you filled with peace, are you not moved with compassion thinking of those of your brethren who do not have an instant of peace? Would it not cause your heart to rejoice if I tell you that through your prayers and thoughts involved in charity, your brethren can awaken to the light?
57. The Father came in that Era to save His children; during this period, it shall be the human beings who will save one another with the love that their Father taught them.
58. My charity has laid out a bridge between My Kingdom and the Earth; that bridge is My people; through them the multitudes will reach the Promised Land.
59. I have spread my wisdom among my people; Mary has spread her love in your heart, and where is that love and that wisdom that you still have not offered Me? What do you do with what you receive from the Divine mercy? For a moment you doubt because I come in Spirit. Feel Me in this manner, because truly I say to you that you will never again have Me as a man.
60. Through the lips of the spokesman you listen to My Word, and this voice has made a calling to those who have deviated from the pathway, those who believing to have found better places than the ones that the Father had assigned for each one of His children, have gone in search of men, pleasures and riches of the world. These children have come before My presence with their garments tattered, with a disgusted heart and with the traces that drunkenness of materialism have left in all their being. When the Father asks you for your garments, understand that it is that of dignity, which is white and pure, and you should present it to Me like that always.
61. Many of them are returning to Me; is it perhaps that they love Me? No, it is because the moment came when the world would not offer them what they asked; then they remembered that I exist, but I receive them, because here, while listening to Me, they will repent for their sins, and in their heart will be born a love toward the Father. The light of My Word will be in My children like a new dawn and their past will be like the night when it disappears.
62. Calm your thirst completely, keep in mind that very soon your word will have to mitigate that of your brother. If while listening to Me and drinking from this wine you still feel thirsty, it is because your heart is striving for the glories of the world. Only my very patient and loving word will be able to perform the miracle of your transformation, and then you will certainly be worthy of arising along the pathways delivering My teaching to your brethren. You shall not humiliate anyone nor deny My charity; you will not show preference for anyone, because you would not be imitating Me. By chance, do you believe that My blood shed upon the cross ceased to drop upon any of the sinners?
63. When John the Baptist announced the imminent coming of the Kingdom of the Heavens, his prophecy was for everyone. That prophet and forerunner of Christ has been among you during this period; he came before My ray of light would communicate through a human faculty, and he also came to announce to you that the arrival of the Holy Spirit was near. His announcement, his prophecy, was without distinction for everyone, and you knew him during this period under the name of Elijah, because that spirit is of that prophet who has been before Mankind during all eras, and he is the forerunner who has prepared the roads of the Lord. That is why I welcome everyone, for I came without judging your sins or humiliating the one who was blemished the most. These people will be those who will most ardently love Me, because their faults were many and all were forgiven.
64. The star which announces My presence has been contemplated only by the humble; the kings and the men of science have slept in their grandeur and they have been unable to discover in the firmament the Divine light in order to arise and follow it, like those kings of the East who left everything to appear before that heavenly light which announced to the world the arrival of the Savior. If men of science would seek My light and those who live in wealth would practice some of My teachings they would feel My presence within their heart.
65. In that Era I said to you that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a wealthy miser to enter the Kingdom of God. Now I say to you that it is necessary for those hearts to put aside their egotism and practice charity toward their brethren in order for their spirit to be able to pass through the narrow path of salvation. It is not necessary to deprive themselves of possessions and riches, but only their egotism.
66. How many of you were possessors yesterday of some wealth on Earth and were forgetful of the miseries and needs of your fellowman; when the hour of judgment for your spirit came, you felt that the magnitude of your sins was so great and the spiritual door so narrow, that you realized you were not able to pass through.
67. Today it is not a wealth of material benefits that you should share with the needy; your wealth during this period is that of light and spiritual knowledge, with which you may consider yourselves rich in spirit, but keep in mind that if it is a grave fault before God to deny your brother the riches of the world while you have them, how would it be if he were denied the spiritual graces which never decrease no matter how much is given? What would be the justice for these rich in spirit who manifest themselves so egotistically?
68. I have you predestined to give to Mankind through you great lessons. Truly I say to you that these people have not been formed by chance, nor has a single heart arrived by accident; the 144,000 who spiritually and materially are to arise, shall be like an open book of light, experience and restitution. That is why I am touching their spirit through their conscience, and truly I say to you that if during the day they are not converted, they shall be converted at nightfall, but they will raise their eyes toward the Father and then undertake the path of their fulfillment.
69. I will still give you more time so that you may meditate upon your mission and prepare your heart. I send you in this period so that you may give testimony of My truth. The Sixth Seal speaks, its light spreads out; its mystery is clarified. Call men, women and children, so that they may listen to My Word, because the year 1950 will arrive and My voice will cease to be heard in this manner.
My Peace be with you!
