A Vision of the Future Through the Lens of History,
World Prophecies, and Spirituality Within Reason:
A Practical Way For the Humble and Meek To Inherit the Earth
We need not compromise with the forces of greed, self-interest, bigotry or hegemony. Rather, we must overcome them, not with malice or offensive words or actions. We must overcome them with persistent reason and truth they cannot deny, and if they try to use the tactic of distraction or try to change the subject, we must be relentless in pressing our case for a comprehensive reformation of government to establish equal opportunity, fairness, equity, freedom, social justice, legal justice, and peace and widespread prosperity for all the people, .
It is time to consider wisdom seldom heard in Washington, D.C. For example:
"Recognition of the falsity of material wealth as the standard of success goes hand in hand with the abandonment of the false belief that public office and high political position are to be valued only by the standards of pride of place and personal profit; and there must be an end to a conduct in banking and in business which too often has given to a sacred trust the likeness of callous and selfish wrongdoing. Small wonder that confidence languishes, for it thrives only on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection, on unselfish performance; without them it cannot live. Restoration calls, however, not for changes in ethics alone. This Nation asks for action, and action now." -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt, First Inaugural Address
Roosevelt did not compromise with the forces of greed, self-interest or bigotry. He insisted that banks, financial institutions, corporations and big businesses be legally required to pay a fair share of taxes, follow needed regulations and rules, and abide by the values and principles for which the greater society stands. For then, and only then, may we live in peace with widespread prosperity in a free society. Only then will humanity be able to enjoy the blessings that will come when we all treat others as we would want to be treated if we were them, and understand that we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable human rights.
In 1776 when Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were collaboration about the content of The Declaration of Independence, Adam wrote the following piece which, like the Declaration, states that it the right of the people to alter or replace their government when it no longer serves their interests. But the Adams piece shows one of the reasons how and why we, the people, need to and can establish real and true Democracy with government that is actually of, by, and for the people -- good government that represents and serves us all, free of plutocratic and theocratic imposition by self-righteous and self-important people.
In fact, it is our right and duty to do so. For just as Thomas Jefferson and John Adams believed, and as Adams stated: "Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men. Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require.”
We, the people, must act. The Spirit of truth is calling us to do so. For the greatest prophets of the world foresaw and foretold that in this period at the end of the passing age of division and conflict there would be a servant-messenger of God who sends his work before him, delivering the message of judgment and intercession that shall set things straight with the truth. However, you should understand that The Sas prophesied, he has first been rejected by his generation because he is not what they expected. But ultimately the people will get the message because it is from the Spirit of truth.
It will deal with and is dealing with the forces of greed, self-interest and bigotry. It will even deal with the hypocritical "goats" who pretend to be religious, and it will put them in their place. On the other hand it will identify the "good sheep" who understand why the humble and meek shall inherit the earth. And it will help us bring wrongdoers to justice and bring a new paradigm of government and leadership into the world. Then, with a new world view, we can start to bring progress, advancement and improvement to the people in all the nations in the world.
Unfortunately, most of the world does not yet know who or what the messenger is, because organized religions don't know the facts about the messianic figure they await. The clergy of the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) believe they know the meaning of messianic prophecies, but it is obvious that the three religions have many conflicting ideas about it, and the ironic fact is that none of them know. In fact, again, some of them are identified with the hypocritical “goats” who masquerade under a cloak of “patriotism and religiosity.” But they serve "Mammon" rather than God, and they do not understand the eternal nature and the divine will of the Great Spirit-Parent.
To complicate things, most Christians don't like the message, because Jesus' role as prophet is not understood by Christianity, the largest religion in the world. But then, consider that it was built upon man-made church canon that elevates Jesus to the status of “only begotten son of God” and even as “God Himself.” Therefore, truth must overcome falsehood and myth. The promised divine intervention and judgment must teach or remind humanity that while the servants like Jesus should be glorified for what they were, only God is God and no man can play God. Only God is the Savior, as Isaiah wrote, and servants of God are chosen to fulfill prophecies. For God is the Eternal Great Spirit-Parent of all of us, and is by any other name The Holy One.
Because of Man's ignorance and error, a reformation of religion is necessary. And since the greatest number of people in the world are Christians or were raised Christian and are familiar with its Creed, this work tends to target that audience, but due to this work's treatment of the crucial universal teachings of Jesus, it is relevant to all people and to the adherents of all of the other major religions. After all, the most essential truth is ageless and universal and can be realized by all who can receive it from within, regardless of religion. Moreover, while this work is somewhat about religion as we know it, it is more about universal spiritual truths that religion should be built upon to serve its true purpose, and it calls for a reformation of religion to achieve that goal.
On the other hand, this work also calls for a reformation of government, so it is as much or more about economics and politics -- about what's wrong and how we may correct it. For the main problem is that the status quo and the traditional ways of determining our leadership have failed, and regardless of whether nations claim to have a "Democracy" or not, political power winds up in the hands of the wealthiest few who rule with the power of money.
That is all the more the case since the forces of greed and self-interest have found new ways to manipulate circumstances and fool people to gain power. People have increasingly found it difficult to discern the truth from that which is misleading, deceptive or false, That has increasingly been the case during the last four decades, and the situation is now so bad that it is very perilous for humanity and for the earth itself.
Deceivers are cunning, but they often succeed because they actually believe they are "right," and that they are even "doing God's will." That is why you must know that while there are many ways a Deceiver may choose to gain or maintain power, it often involves appealing to the people’s egotism and their pride and prejudices, and turning them against minority scapegoats who are labeled as "the problem."
Today we have blatant examples of that, which is why bigotry and hypocrisy and violence are rampant and increasing. And the situation is so grave that unless the great majority of the people learn the truth, we are in danger of falling further down the slippery slope into total Plutocracy, Theocracy, and Fascism. In fact, we have already fallen far in that direction and plutocratic and theocratic forces have taken control of many governments, especially the government of America.
However, truth will prevail, and it can and will set us free, empower us, take power away from the forces of greed and self-interest, and enable the humble and "meek" majority to inherit the earth and establish real Democracy with government that will actually be of, by, and for the people.
You see, we need real Democracy. But our governments have failed us because real and true Democracy does not yet exist. We do not yet have government of the people, by the people, or for the people. We have government that is controlled by Plutocrats and Theocrats who pull the strings, and thus our government does not promote the general welfare, nor does it use the common wealth for the common good. It serves the interests of the wealthiest few who think their wealth and religion entitles them to rule.
Nevertheless, this message is also about the true meaning and purpose of religion, and the need for religious freedom and pluralism with a Jeffersonian "wall of separation between church and state."
Furthermore, keep in mind that according to the prophets Isaiah and Jesus, the servant-messenger of God sends his work before him and is "hidden" as he and his work are rejected by his generation, and he suffers many things and has been stricken and afflicted. He avoids the limelight and seeks not to exalt himself, and he stresses that it is the message, not the messenger, that the world needs. He seeks only to deliver the message that will liberate and empower all humanity.
