A Modern Jeffersonian Vision of the Future,
Through the Lens of History, World Prophecies, and Spirituality Within Reason
"As for the best leaders, the people do not notice them. When the best leader's work is accomplished, the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'" -- Lao Tzu, The Book of Tao
"Listen to me, all peoples, from far: the Lord has called me ... And the Lord God has made my mouth and pen like a sharp sword, in the shadow of God’s hand have I been hidden; and the Lord has made me as a polished arrow, in God’s quiver I have been concealed.” — Isaiah 49:1-2
Later, Jesus of Nazareth spoke of that person, saying: "I tell you the truth: I must go away, but I will send the Counselor to you. He will righteously judge the world; because I am going to heaven and you will see me no more. I came not to judge the world, but the rulers of this world must be judged. I have much more to say to you, but it is more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak of himself, because of himself he will do nothing but the will of the one who sent him. He will tell you what is to come. He will glorify me by receiving what I have received from God, and making it known to you." -- The historical Jesus of Nazareth according to John 8:28, 12:47 and 16:7-15
"But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by his generation." -- Jesus according to Luke 17:25
Isaiah and Jesus foresaw the plight of the author of this message, the Counselor who was called and chosen but has been hidden and concealed, and has first been rejected by his generation and suffered many things (unlike Jesus who was accepted by multitudes and suffered only after he completed his mission). For the modern messenger is your fellow companion in Tribulation, and yet he is the principal messenger for the Spirit of truth. He reminds you that only the eternal God is the Holy One, and besides God there is no Savior, repeating what Isaiah wrote. And he tells you the truth that all humanity needs to hear.
The majority of people in the world who are humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and meek will inherit the earth, whether they are religious or not. But, in order for that to happen, the political and religious leaders of the world must be corrected, and arrogant, militant hypocrites who fight offensively in the name of religion and patriotism must be exposed and corrected by the light of truth.
One of America's greatest Founders, Thomas Jefferson, tried to deal with the same kind of hypocrisy that plagues the world today. For instance, Jefferson said that theocratic clergy “have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man," and Jefferson swore “upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
Moreover, Jefferson spoke out not only against the tyranny of hypocritical Theocrats who believed their religion entitled them to rule. He also spoke out against the tyranny of greedy, self-important, rich Plutocrats who believed their wealth entitled them to rule.
Unfortunately, Theocrats and Plutocrats are relentless, and they found a way to rule anyway. And, even though they encountered resistance and temporary defeat between 1933 and 1969, since then and especially since 1982 they have succeeded completely. Consequently, the wealthiest few rule and the great majority of us suffer the consequences, because Jeffersonian principles, which Abraham Lincoln said are "the axioms of a free society," have been utterly ignored by the Theocrats and Plutocrats who control government.
This message addresses those problems very frankly and straightforwardly, and it shows all people how to liberate and empower yourselves and establish good governments that will actually be of, by, and for the people -- governments that will promote the general welfare, use the common wealth for the common good, respect all religions equally, and guarantee equal rights, equal opportunities and genuine freedom of religion, including freedom from theocratic imposition.
This message cannot be imposed on the world. It must be recognized and acknowledged by humanity. For it proclaims that wealth is not a license to rule; that no particular religion or nation or race or culture should claim superiority; that we are all created equal in the sight of God, which by any other name is the Great Spirit-Parent of all human beings, the eternal Holy One, also known as the Universal Cosmic Consciousness.
It is but a matter of time before this promised judgment and intercession will finally be acknowledged by enough people that the pen will finally prove mightier than the sword, and the truth will prevail. We can and will overcome.

About the Message
In order for the humble, gentle, kind, peaceful and meek majority of people to inherit the earth and enjoy our birthright, an authentic, truly righteous judgment is needed to correct the political and religious leaders of the world who have brought us to this terrible state of inequity, conflict, division, and tribulation.
Such a judgment was prophesied by prophets of many religions. But, while it is a divine intervention, it is not as many religious people expected because the fulfillment of real prophecies is not about the rule of one world religion or government, and it has nothing to do with a “holy war” or magic or anything supernatural. It is about truth, love, reason and justice overcoming false beliefs, hate, bigotry and injustice.
The judgment is not to issue commandments, but to counsel and guide humanity to the truth, explain religious prophecies and the nature of God as much as possible, show you things to come, and suggest how we may proceed forward toward a brighter future.
The judgment and the fulfillment of prophecy is about the liberation and empowerment of the people, so that we may finally become the family of religions and races that we are, and the family of governments that will be truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, at long last.
However, the promised judgment cannot be imposed upon the world. He who delivered the message does not try to play God or conquering hero or king, nor does he claim divinity or royalty. He is merely a fellow servant and messenger of God, and only human. He merely delivered the message so that it can be seen in a flash, like lightning, by people all over the world. And it is up to the people of the world to recognize and acknowledge it.
So far not enough people have recognized it, and, as it was foreseen and prophesied, the messenger is rejected by his generation. But that’s not surprising. In fact, it was prophesied and predicted, because neither the messenger nor the judgment he delivered are what people expected.
Meanwhile, while the messenger is rejected, he and most people in the world suffer many terrible things, the wealthiest few who hold all the wealth and power live luxuriously and palatially, believing that is the natural order of things. In fact, some of the richest few mistakenly believe that they are blessed by God, and that the poor masses are poor because they deserve to be poor.
Consequently, a very wealthy few rule the world and aristocracy, oligarchy and monarchy (including the presidential form of monarchy) is perpetuated as we are steadily prevented from advancing and even pushed backward regarding our social and financial status, as the wealthiest few become more and more powerful and get richer and richer at the expense of everyone else.
That’s why the judgment cannot be lukewarm. It must be strong, firm and righteous, so that it will expose and denounce greedy, bigoted hypocrites who have fought for and gained a grossly unfair and disproportionate amount of personal power, wealth and domain in the world, even as the majority have become increasingly worse off and in jeopardy.
The judgment will enable the people to put an end to the rule of money. It will render theocracy, oligarchy, aristocracy and all forms of monarchy obsolete, and instead establish actual liberty, democracy, justice, peace and freedom for all humanity.
The judgment helps us understand that only God the eternal, omnipresent Great Spirit-Parent reigns Sovereign, above all human beings. And it explains that the fulfillment of prophecy is to bring about a reformation of our religions and our governments so that they will use the common wealth for the common good, promote the general welfare, and ensure domestic tranquility, pluralism and freedom of religions, equal rights and opportunities, and justice for all the people.
That is what this comprehensive message and judgment is all about, and it is designed not to condemn, but to educate; not to punish, but to correct; and not to destroy, but to save.
Now, even though the message cites Judeo-Christian scriptural evidence because Christianity is the largest religion in the world and the most powerful, the message is universal in scope and appropriate for all religions. However, because the messenger has declared his prophetic prerogative and mission, religious people dismiss and label his work as heretical, others dismiss it as either naive or wrong, and the rich dismiss it as sour grapes. And this too was expected, and prophesied.
While the messenger is rejected, spiritually blind leaders lead their blind flocks astray, and we are in this state of tribulation because the greatest refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism, and the greatest refuge of a hypocrite is religiosity. And the proud and militant who have claimed that their religion or nation or race or culture is superior to all others, or that their wealth entitles them to rule, are woefully wrong.
The messenger’s mission to deliver his work before him may now be fulfilled, and when enough people get the message he must give up his self-important, judgmental role because he is painfully aware that as he has judged so he has been judged. And even though his work has earned him the right for the message to be read and heard by the nations, he may have to die of natural causes before the message can be widely accepted and recognized for what it is. God only knows.
Whatever the case, please understand that it is the truth, and nothing but the truth, that shall set us free, and the messenger was sent to provide true counsel and liberate and empower you all.
