I am nothing. Seek not in me the Truth, for you will find nothing. But receive through me the Word.
If the Word is spoken through me, then that is my choice, but it is not my Word.
Look not to the wine press for the elusive taste that comes from the grape. You will find but a shell.
AND NOW THE JUDGEMENT
AND NOW THE JUDGEMENT
1. 1 I, the Spirit of the Lord Christ, am come unto you from the ancient of days.
2 Light of the world, I came before; Saviour of mankind. I lived as a man, I died as a man. I showed the way to men. I spoke the language of humanity, and I whispered the secret answer into man's ear.
3 But man was deaf. He heard nothing but the sound of his own selfish desires for superiority to all around him. He heard nothing but the voice of his own fear of being nothing in the eyes of his fellow man. He listened not to the secret voice that spoke to him of love, of humility, of truth, and of the way to eternal life.
4 I came into the world of men and taught as men could understand. I prophesied in riddles, but I taught with simple words and plain commandments; not as the pretenders who have deeply and obscurely philosophized since the beginning of time, so that no ordinary man could grasp the meaning of their wooden words. When I taught I spoke of simple matters that all could grasp and all could under- stand.
5 I said: "Love your enemies. Do not hate them. To return one human hatred for another, is to add to the sum total of human hatred. To hate what hates you, is to create an ever increasing spiral of blame and recrimination. But to love what hates you, is to disarm the hatred and make it powerless."
6 But man continues to show hatred of that which shows hatred of him, and the spiral of blame indeed continues to increase. And man is righteous in his hatred, for he justifies himself within it by his own self-created logic, and by the self same premise against which I warned him; hate for hate, destruction for destruction.
7 This last is the Law of GOD. For GOD is the judge of all things, and gives an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth in full mea- sure. But it is not the law of men, unless men see themselves as GOD.
8 And I said: "Resist not evil. Fight not the forces of destruc- tion. Allow them, and by the Law of the Universe they must ultimately destroy themselves, for GOD shall turn their destruction back upon them."
9 But man continued to combat all that he considered evil in its intentions towards him. He continued to judge, and he continued to sentence, and he continued to carry out the sentence.
10 And the Law was played out. But man made himself the law, so that each considered himself to be right, and each considered himself to be doing the Will of GOD, though GOD had spoken nothing to him of making his own judgement.
11 And each fought the other, and each still fights the other. And I had warned: "Resist not evil," knowing that man sees only evil in what threatens HIM, which is no judgement of evil. Only GOD judges what is evil. And as man threatens himself and each man threatens another, only war can come from men resisting what they see as evil.
12 But men took no heed of My warning. And what a man sees as evil, what a man sees as threatening to himself, he fights against, and at once becomes evil in the mind of another, who, with equal righteousness, returns the combat.
13 Men cannot judge. Men were not made to judge. Men can only accept the Will of GOD; good or evil, right or wrong. Men can only live by love. Judgement and the hand of retribution, is of GOD.
14 But men will not hear. It is plain and simple, but they will not here. In My Name, they go against My warning, and destroy them- selves, as they must. In My Name, they judge what is evil, and make war upon it. So that man continues to be divided against himself - as he must be, pursuing such a course.
2. 1 And I said also: "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt."
2 For I knew the dangers of materialism. I knew that man could become devoted to his worldly welfare. I knew that men could come to worship their possessions and forget their souls. I knew that men could come to worship their human status and forget their destiny beyond the confines of humanity. And I made it simple for them. I said: 'Consider the lilies of the field. They toil not neither do they spin. Yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
3 But they did not listen. They feared instead for the preserva- tion of their good name and their physical well-being - peace of mind and comfort of body. They feared for their security.
4 And now. in My Name, men seek more and more to preserve and pander to themselves. I said: "Blessed only is the man who will take up his cross and follow Me." And they knew that the Son of Man has no place where He might rest in the bosom of security.
5 And men purport to follow Me. They say: "I am of Christ. I am Christ's disciple. I am following in His footsteps." Yet all the time they build themselves security within the earth, and they are willing to destroy others in order to preserve their self-made self-designed security.
6 And they give a little of their security to Me from time to time. Do I ask for security? Did I ever demand of them a house to own, property to depend upon, goods to say were Mine by right of law? Never. I asked only for their faith, and this they cannot or will not give. They fear too greatly for the loss of their security.
7 I said: "Spare no anxiety for what will become of you in the future. I shall look after My own. The hypocrites, who think they have power because they own or rule large sections of the earth, will seek to destroy you, and they will destroy your body, even your mind. But if you belong to Me they cannot destroy your soul. So be not anxious about how you will survive upon the earth. It is GOD who gives and GOD who takes away. That is the Law."
8 But man, who carries My symbol, worships at My altar, kneels in feigned humility before My effigy, whispers devout words that mean nothing either to him or to Me; man who professes My Name, even carries My words within his memory, heeds none of this. He continues to defend himself against the future. He continues to go to men for reassurance. He continues to depend on men for his security. He continues to build a bulwark round himself against the dangers of the world that threaten his material existence and his social standing.
9 I said to one who asked what he should do: "Go, sell all your possessions, give the proceeds to the poor, and come and follow Me."
10 Could a message be more simple? I asked of him no devious task, no complicated test of strength or power or great intelligence. A truth I gave to him, so simple that a child could understand.
11 And with it I gave a clue to all those who seek to follow Me. I negated the value of human and material wealth. I negated the value of personal possessions. I gave importance on1y to the soul that follows the star to which it belongs.
12 I have spoken to the world with such clarity and such simplicity, and My words have even traversed the centuries, and some have been preserved.
3. 1 I said of the Latter Days: "There shall be wars and rumors of wars and nation shall rise against nation. There shall be famine and pestilence and every conceivable kind of human disaster. But BE YE NOT TROUBLED, FOR THESE THINGS MUST BE."
2 Yet all who profess to serve me are afraid. All who hold My Name before them are indeed troubled by the manifestations of the Latter Days.
3 And to what do they attribute these things?
4 To the human evil of others than themselves, who have not been sufficiently resisted. Is this their faith in My words?
5 To the sins of others than those upon whom the suffering is inflicted. Is this their understanding of the Will of GOD?
6 Was Sodom destroyed because of the evil of another city? Did the foolish virgins of whom I spoke, suffer because of the wrong that others did to them?
7 Did I not warn you enough of the Wrath to come? Of My Wrath, the Wrath of the Lamb? Of My Judgement, the Judgement of the Son of Man? Could I have been more definite, more precise? Could I have said more, or spoken it with greater clarity?
4. 1 I said: "Nothing can harm a man that comes from outside himself. Only what is within can destroy him. A man brings evil upon himself. It does not come at him from without. A man is his own destroyer, his ovm torturer. Suffering comes to him from his own hand. If he is aware of this, then he suffers to expiate his sin. If he is not aware, then he suffers to give himself cause to blame another, and thence create MORE evil for himself and others to use against themselves."
2 But do men listen? Do they believe?
3 They cry the Name of Christ, and with the Name itself they blame upon others all that they have inflicted upon themselves.
4 I spoke even of forgiveness for those who find it hard to understand that pain comes from within. I said: "If you cannot realize that none can wrong you, that only you can wrong yourself, then at least forgive. If you feel you have been wronged, forgive."
5 But man prefers to blame rather than to forgive, to condemn rather than to extend the hand of mercy, to hate rather than to love, and his justifications for so doing are limitless.
6 "Judge not," I warned again, "that ye be not judged. For no man reaps what he has not sown. And all in the last analysis are confronted with their own gifts. Rather see the evil within YOU as the source of your discomfort, and extend forgiveness to him who is but the instrument."
7 But man must sit in judgement of his fellow man, to prove he is superior. Judge condemning judge, who must return the condemna- tion.
8 And so it must go on. For the one thing that could have prevent- ed it has been absorbed. Man is vaccinated now against salvation. He can read My words aloud, discuss them, interpret them a hundred thousand ways, fight for them, even die for them, and still he is immune to them. Still he makes no move to follow what they say to him.
9 If man had lost My words, we cou1d say: "All he must do is find them again, read them - he cannot fail to understand their mean- ing - and he will save himself." But man has the words before him, he understands their meaning. He is immune to their significance.
5. 1 There is nothing left now with the world of men, but to take from the midst of humanity the few, the very few who do not belong to humanity, and to allow the Devastation of the Latter Days to take its inevitable course.
2 Apart from these few, all that is left that lives and moves upon the earth, which is of GOD, are animals; creatures who, unlike man, sought not to rule their destiny and take upon themselves the power of reason and thereby choice. Animais remain of GOD.
3 And man, seeking to preserve even further the body which I warned him not to fear for, even tortures THEM in their choiceless innocence.
4 Is this the way he follows Me?
5 And further, to pamper and adorn that body, which I have so clearly negated beside the soul, he tortures more creatures.
6 Is this the way he lives by my words?
7 When a man is given by GOD dominion over men, how swiftly is he condemned by those who would preserve humanity, when he inflicts one tiny grain of suffering or discomfort upon his charges! Yet who speaks out in anger against man, whom GOD in His creation of the race gave dominion over the animals, when he tortures and destroys with pain and agony million upon million of these crea- tures placed innocent and trusting within his charge?
8 Man screams in fury when other men are harmed, because he sees the danger to himself - unless, when the threat is more direct, he becomes the aqent of the harming in order to defend his own sur- vival. But who raises even the mildest complaint when the vivi- sectionist begins his work upon yet another helpless creature?
9 Herein is the final evidence of man's rejection of My words.
10 I took a child, the soul of innocence and purity, a creation un- spoiled as yet by the taint of sin; and I said: "Look upon this, and see your GOD reflected in the eyes of an innocent child. The Kingdom of Heaven is of such as this. Wherever you see such in- nocence, you see GOD. And any who shall harm one hair of the head of such a being, is My enemy and the enemy of GOD."
11 Where else can such innocence be seen? Where else is such purity? Where else can be seen a true acceptance of what is, as GOD has made it?
12 Where else, upon earth, is GOD?
13 Today I would not take a chi1d, corrupted from birth by the self- inflicted stain of human hatred, but an animal, a creature made by GOD and given to the world of men. And I would say: "Any who would make this creature suffer, any who would CONDONE the suffer- ing of this creature, is My enemy and the enemy of GOD."
14 But My words would fall upon the ears of the deaf. Men would preach them loudly at one another and make nothing of them, even less than they have made already of My words.
15 There is no more but the Separation of the few from amongst the many; the many, who make the race of human-kind, the few, who are rejected by the race because they are of GOD. And after the Separation shall come the death of humanity.
16 And the few shall be raised up, and the many shall be cast down, and Fire shall purify the corrupted world that was the world of men.
17 And the great bastion of the human Church, that speaks My words and pays no heed to them, that cries out "Love!" and condones hatred, that cries out "Peace! " and encourages war, that cries out "Forgive!" and helps to blame, that cries out "Faith!" and defends itself against the world, that cries out "Follow Christ!" and turns its back on everything I stand for; the great bastion of the human Church, that demands less and less from men for GOD and more and more from GOD for men, that molds itself closer and closer to human needs, pandering to man’s greater and greater rejection of My words, and meeting every demand for further indulgence that man chooses to make upon it; the great bastion of the human Church that asks to be accepted by men, that fawns upon them, decks itself to suit their tastes, retracts when they mani- fest disapproval, whores pitifully after those deserting it be- cause it fails to meet their needs, promising every compromise, every betrayal of the truth, in order to fit humanity's inversion of My words; the great bastion of the human Church, cut off by its own betrayal of itself, from all that could once have given it power and vitality, shall crumble into worthless dust, and die with the dying race, which it has sought so desperately to seduce.
18 For none is more guilty than the hypocrite, and he who mouths My words and yet lives by the inversion of My words is the ultimate hypocrite.
19 I said; "He who is of Me, lives IN the world but is not OF the world."
20 The Church itself is OF the world; and those who justify them- selves by kneeling abjectly within its all-protecting walls of totally predictable stability, those who cling to the worldly safety of its 'good name', and hope that it wi1l carry them on its man-made wings to an earthly paradise of sound respectability, those who join the Church in its quest to be more human and more worldly every day, are so much OF the world. so tightly bound to everything else that is OF the world, so deeply buried in their need to be OF the world, that little now can free them from their worldly valuations. The soul is just a word to them; their house, their job, their income, their family, their prospects, their bills, their commitments. their debts, their pensions, their insurance policies, their motor cars, their bank accounts, their clothes, their vacations, their medicines, their drugs, their lotions, their potions, their diets and their health; these are the components of reality for them. And their Church is instru- mental to maintain them.
21 And the Church, in justification of itself and those whom it follows, asks: "What can you do for a man's soul when his body is sick and his stomach is empty?" And yet it knows that hundreds of times I have said to a man: "Your faith has cured you."
22 The remedy springs from the soul. Better to ask: "What can you do for a man’s body when his soul is sick?" Indeed when the body is sick the soul may well be ready for salvation, and, when it is saved, may bring the body back to health. But try to cure the body, take away the pain, and the soul is lulled once more into a false security, and turns further than ever from the path.
23 And the Church meanwhile helps man to raise higher and higher the demands he makes on others in favor of his body, whilst allowing him to sink lower and lower in the demands he makes upon himself in favor of his soul.
24 So that men store UP treasure for themselves on earth in abundance, and nothing any more is stored up for them in Heaven.
25 And the Church is with men and follows the ways of men. And the ways of men and the demands of men, are God for the Church of men.
26 And the GOD of Heaven is forgotten in favor of the God of earth. And the soul is forgotten in favor of the body. And eternal life is forgotten in favor of temporal life. And salvation is forgot- ten in favor of satisfaction. And attaining Paradise is forgotten in favor of making Hell more comfortable.
27 Man has chosen, and heads unerringly for death. And the Church has chosen to pursue him there.
6. 1 "My Kingdom," I said, "is NOT of this world."
2 But who has heeded My words? Man seeks only to build an ever- lasting kingdom upon earth, of which each man himself desires to be king. So man and I can never be one. He who seeks to follow man and be part of man’s kingdom upon earth, must be OF the world. He must demand his share of the world, defend his rights in the world, protect his worldly body, maintain his worldly possessions, promote his worldly status, feed his worldly appetites, and pur- sue his worldly ambitions. Only thus can he be a part of the destiny of man.
3 But he who seeks to follow Me and take his place in My Kingdom, must NOT be of the world. He must renounce the world and every- thing for which it stands. He must demand no share in what the world has to offer its own. He must lay claim to no rights with- in the wor1d. He must care nothing for status, possessions, tastes, appetites or worldly aims.
4 He must disown the world of men, demanding nothing from it, expecting nothing from it, and assume no part in its destiny. Only thus can a being be of Me and of My Kingdom.
5 And he who is of the world, shall go with the fate of the wor1d, shall be part of the death of the world, shall belong to the End of the world. But he who is of Me, shall share My Destiny, My Heritage, My Immortality.
6 And the Separation is exact. There is Life and there is Death. For I said: "If ye love Me, keep My commandments. He that loveth Me not, keepeth not My cormnandments. And this is My commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you." And I said: "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
7 And is this the story of the world of men? Is this the story of the Church that calls itself My Church? Is this the story of man?
8 Man is born of sin into a world of sin; he lives by sin and he dies in sin. Only by renouncing the world can a being free him- self of the contamination.
9 To feed upon the world - to share its values, belong within its structures, take life from it - is to own the world. To then disown the evil that it spawns, is the act of a hypocrite. To then claim innocence of all the agony to which the world gives birth, is a lie. He who feeds upon the world, creates the world.
10 Many will call upon My Name in the terrors of the Latter Days, saying: "Lord , Lord, I was not to blame. I did not hate. I did not kill. I did not inflict suffering. I am hot respon- sible for all of this." And I shan say to them: "You gave life to the world that gave birth to these things. You took its values, you obeyed its laws and you built your own existence within its structures. You and the world are one."
11 And others will say: "Lord, Lord, I have loved You." And I shall say: "You cannot love Me and belong to the world. For the world hates He. I warned you that you could not serve two masters. But you paid no heed. You thought that whilst you were in the world you could have the world accept you, you could be loved by the world - and then when the world discarded you, you could come to Me. But believe Me, you have made your choice. You have chosen the world and the values of the world and the ambitions of the world. Now you must go with the world, wherever the hand of destiny shall take it."
12 And others will say: "Lord, Lord, we have worshipped You and prayed to You frequently. We are Yours." And I shall say to them: "I never knew you. You worshipped from behind a barrier of self-righteousness - your worship never reached Me. You prayed from within a fortress of self-protection - your prayers I never heard. You tried to reach Me from inside the limits of humanity and everything it stands for - I was never conscious of your presence. You are not Mine, but the world’s; because you threw in your lot with the world."
13 And there shall be ministers and bishops and all manner of human- itarians, who shall say: "Lord, Lord~ come down and save the people of this world." And I shall say to them: "You have followed them to their doom, pandering all the time to their demands so that they would love you and accept you. Do you now want Me to do the same? They have crucified Me every day of their lives. Now is THEIR time for crucifixion. Have you forgotten the fate of the barren fig tree? Or that of the branch that bore no fruit? This is the Law of the Universe. Neither you nor I can reverse it."
7. 1 In those days when first I came upon the earth, all that would come to pass was hidden from the eyes of mortal men. I prophe- sied in parables, so that only the few would understand, and lest unworthy souls should seize the inheritance that is reserved for those who have chosen it. My prophecies were cloaked in mystery, so that only those who were open to receive the spirit of the Divine Will would feel the essence of their meaning.
2 But now all is revealed. No mystery is needed. For mystery is in the mind of man, so that all may hear and all may see, and prophecy needs no disguise, and still only the few who belong will receive the message and act upon it. The rest have already chosen, and whatever might be said to them, their choice is made; the seal is set upon their fate. Their minds, devious and obtuse, riddled with the snares of contradiction and anachronism, will cast aside the truth before it can penetrate the mists of mental conflict and reach the soul.
3 No longer is there danger of the GODless servants of the human lie, grasping the destiny of those who serve GOD. The choice is made, the Separation is complete.
4 Only there remains to come upon the earth the hand of the Great Destroyer and the Lord of Doom. And when the Sixth Seal is broken, then shall His mighty presence be felt by all, for none shall fail to know Him then.
5 And He shall stride upon the earth without mercy or consideration.
6 And He shall mock the abject fear that follows so swiftly on the heels of GODless arrogance and pale self-righteousness.
7 Too late the worshippers of mediocrity shall regret their need to be accepted.
8 Too late the worshippers of science shall regret their need to prove that man is God.
9 Too late the worshippers of weak and mealy-mouthed religion shall regret their need to be acceptable. .
10 Too late the worshippers of men shall regret their need to be loved by humanity.
11 Too late the GODless shall regret their need to deny that GOD exists.
12 Too late the pale grey citizen of this doomed world shall regret his need for safe security within the bosom of society. Too late the fearful servants of GODlessness shall turn to Me and cry: "Lord, save us; for the hand of Satan is upon us." And I shall say to them: "You blamed Him for your misdeeds. You branded Him evil and yourselves good. You accused Him for your own rejection of Me. You set yourselves above Him and despised Him out of your own self-righteousness. You gave Him your sins and wished upon Him your retribution. You saw no evil in yourselves, but all the evil in the universe in Him. You judged Him and exonerated your- selves. You condemned Him and glorified yourselves. Now comes His answer. Should I censure Him in His repayment of the debt He owes you? Should I prevent Him giving measure for measure, pound for pound? It is the Law of the Universe, and the Gods must maintain it.
13 "I have Judged you as you have judged Him. And now He comes to execute My Judgement."
14 And the world of men shall end in bitter degradation and contempt. No glory for man, only an all-destroying cancer of death and agonizing sickness that ends in death. Only the joyless terrors of the Latter Days, inflicting mortal wound on mortal wound, sweeping all before them and leaving only devastation in their wake.
15 And after the End of the world of men, My world shall begin.
16 No part of the old world, no likeness to the old world, no link with the old world. For My world is not a human world, not a world of any kind of men, but a world of beings separated forever from the vast network of agreements with which humanity has bound itself to its inevitable destruction; a world of the spirit, freed from the agonies of human mental conflict; a world of feeling, released beyond the rigid barriers of human fear and inhibition; a world of knowledge, transcending the narrow bounds of human ignorance; a world of power, far above the petty struggles of man against himself, a world of discovery, reaching far outside the tiny limits of man's rejection of the secrets of the Universe; a world of GOD, where the stultifying power of GODlessness is unknown.
17 And My world shall begin, and it shall have no end.
8. 1 Time was when the Devil was man’s adversary.
2 Time was when I, the Spirit of the Lord Christ, fought the Great Lord Satan for humanity.
3 Time was when humanity fought the Great Lord Satan for its own salvation.
4 Time was when I came upon earth to give fast falling man a final opportunity to rise and save himself.
5 Time was when man could still choose Life or Death, Heaven or Hell, Fulfillment or Doom.
6 But now that time has gone; the choice is made. Man is forever steeped in sin. Man is forever buried in ignorance. Man is lost. Man is damned.
7 Man has chosen Death, the Ultimate Death. Man has chosen the Lie, the Ultimate Lie. Man has chosen the path of Doom and Devastation. That scene is set and nothing now shall change it.
8 Time was when the Devil was man's adversary.
9 Time was when humanity opposed the Devil.
10 Time was when the Devil threatened humanity with Hell. And Hell was agony and misery and violence and despair and death and hatred and terror and chaos and pain and the ultimate futility of blind ignorance.
11 Then man made his final choice. Man chose the lie the Devil offered him.
12 Now earth itself is Hell; humanity is the Devil.
13 That is the Judgement.
