A Messenger from God can bring an entire new reality and change the awareness and the consciousness of large numbers of people, even affecting the attitudes of the entire human race.
People have no idea of how Messengers are selected or prepared. The Message is always greater than the Messenger, and people do not understand the Messenger. Messengers appear very infrequently, in the interim, prophets give warnings or set standards for behavior.
A Messenger does not simply give warning of great hazards, present and future, or provides higher standards or a greater vision of peace, cooperation and equanimity amongst the human family. A prophet cannot do this, for prophets speak of present and future events, and their prophecies are not for all time and all people. They are specific to certain people, place and event.
A Messengers changes the whole approach and future of humanity. Messengers are often condemned, crucified or destroyed because people do not get wealth, security, advantages or favors ― endowments from God ― from the Messengers. People who are needy and ambitious reject and condemn the Messenger, for they seek immediate benefits, and have no idea of their greater needs for their souls.
This is a dilemma for all peoples in the world ― rich or poor, from any nation, culture or religious affiliation. They are not yet aware of the great need of the soul. Few people connect inside with God ― their future, destiny and life purpose.
The Messenger brings a Message for all people, and he is not a reformer, advocate, visionary or prophet. The Messenger brings a reality for everyone who can receive him in humility and honesty.
The Messenger is imperfect, but God selected him to enter into the world at a certain place and time. His personal destiny was moderate education about humanity and the human condition, and sufficient insulation from the world so that his great promise and calling could occur when the Messenger reached maturity. His life was planned and monitored to bring a New Revelation from God. God has spoken again to prepare humanity for the hazards of living in a declining world and the great unseen dangers of invasive forces from the universe exploiting human weakness, ambition and disunity.
The Messenger was given the Message imbued at a deeper level of the mind, beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect. He would be observant of people, and remain available, open and receptive throughout his formative years. The Messenger would be restrained from great careers, and commitment in relationships until he met his destiny.
People think that all great Messengers are very saintly, pure and perfect. They all made errors, and some of them have suffered greatly for their errors. What made them Messengers was the power of the Message imbued in them and their ability to withstand seductions, tragedies and pressures of the world until their Initiation. Such goal could not have happened without Divine oversight, and careful management of their lives.
All Messengers did not know who they were, what they were carrying, or what it would mean for the future until their Initiation. Time, place and the support of certain individuals were paramount to the Initiation. All Messengers are truly unique individuals, and though their origins are generally humble, they become the most important people in the world.
God’s Messengers were ignored or denied and treated very poorly or even brutally ― hardly recognized for their importance and uniqueness. A few had this recognition, which would play an important part in the Messenger’s development, early ministry and later success.
The power of Revelation is given for the first time to the connected world ― the Messenger can speak to the whole world, which can reject him. The opportunities and the hazards are huge! The Messenger may be threatened once his voice impacts people, because many people will consider him an enemy and a threat. It is easier for the ordinary people to recognize the Messenger, because they have few preconceived notions and social esteem.
You can deny and disclaim him, but he has the Message, and brings it forth in a fine form. To recognize the Messenger, you must have eyes to see and ears to hear, for He will bring a new reality into the world requiring all religions to reassess their primary and fundamental ideas and beliefs.
People will become worried with the Messenger, because they cannot face the Message. They will complain and accuse him since they will think that for the Message to be true, he has to meet their criteria, he must give people what they want, or they will reject him. All Messengers have faced this fundamental dilemma. The Messenger gives the pathway of personal revelation, restoration and redemption, the revelation is pure and simple, but so deep because it is a matter of the heart and the soul.
The risks of corruption and misinterpretation are so great. People will face problems to gain a true relationship with their deeper nature and to discover their great purpose in the world. The Messenger brings challenge, opportunity, restoration and a true relationship with the Divine Will. He brings the Revelation that can save humanity from collapse and the risk of eternal subjugation.
The Messenger speaks to people facing world catastrophic changes and brings solutions to questions and problems beyond current knowledge. People know little of the real hazards facing the world today, as they are living in their dreams, preoccupied with their needs and problems, without a clear idea about threats to human civilization, internal and external. The Revelation brings this awareness. Only God can reveal the near future for humanity and can speak to the deeper needs of the heart and the soul ― the center of the Revelation.
The Messenger speaks of living a greater life in service to a world in a growing need that will escalate beyond imagination. He calls people amidst their miserable attempt at fulfillment, tragedies, predicaments, entrapment, and political, social and religious oppression to find the voice of God within their souls. Anyone should respond to the Messenger, as time is critical for an elderly whose presence in the world is paramount for the future of humanity.
If the Messenger would face calamity tomorrow, enough people would carry the Message forward. The documentation would prevent usurpation and corruption, for the Message speaks clearly, without a great need for human intervention. The Messenger’s knowledge supplements the documentation, he carries the Message within him like a burning fire that warms the soul and illuminates the landscape.
Your relationship with the Messenger is important, but you will not immediately realize the importance. The Messenger must be heard, and the nature of Revelation must be understood as a great opportunity, because it is the real Message for the world for now and the future.
