What a contrast!
2,753 years ago in 8th century B.C. Jerusalem, celebrated Hebrew prophet Isaiah began to prophesy the destruction of Israel by the sprawling Assyrian empire because of the priestly ruling class’ faithless decadence.
Isaiah also predicted a messiah, later revealed as Christ Jesus, would come to console and lift Israel’s miserable poor from those who clenched the whip of brutal force.
“A lot of fear is running around the Earth like a frightened child. Trying on many scary and foolish masks & wildly waving its hands; trying to convince people of the power of fear.
But don’t you be fooled! For fear is a fool, a superstition, a broken religion.
Anyone can see the illogic of fear in a place of Earth, where Heaven is coming to rest its feet, establish its kingdom, and refresh the human race and all extant species.
Fear is a fool’s gold, a pretender to importance.
Nothing can change or is willing to change your fears except for love itself.
Love is the primordial most established truth.
The truth is no longer willing to wait for world fears to put down the pretend scary masks, no longer convincing.
You must admit the errors of all human religions, as much as they grant “fear” the power of truth and a place at their table. Root out, dig out all fears and you will snare the tails and tales of all falsehoods–
for one God-given cosmic religion is coming to Earth, coming now,
truths without fears
and love without lies
into each and every religion still embraced in the hearts of man and woman.
Do not fear the end of fears. Do not fear the changing of your olden ways–
until now, all religions tried to point the way to the end of fear and the end of falsehood and the end of lack–
THE NEW COSMIC RELIGION coming to transform Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. is The Religion of All Worlds, The Cosmic Truth Breaking Reality into Every Religion and Spiritual Path.
You have nothing to fear but your own deeper, living, personal knowledge of God, joined with everyone else’s, changing the world and all religions into NO FEAR, NO LACK, NO LIES, NO INHUMANITY–
all the deceptions and inaccuracies of every human system must cease to exist in error.
You must accept the possibility and power of your own religion, being carved as a rough stone by truth and the divine power of love. Carved into the most precious gemstone–the Pure Diamond of Truth–
with the light of God in your eyes, reflected in the eyes of all human beings and wild animals, plants, oceans and skies alike.
Dig deeply into the ground. Planted seeds, divine seeds of truth are growing!
You are the roots of truth! You are the stalks, the stem, the leaves, the blossoms incredibly glittering. You are the honest blossom awaiting the dew of the new dawn.
Do not fear others in their fear. Do not suffer their fears, or yours, in silence. They have no more power over you than your beliefs permit. In truth, they do not control themselves–
they cannot control you, either–
watch in amazement as the human systems of earth are gradually transformed by trial and error into lands and peoples free of pain, freed from oppression, freed from brutalities and dying desperation of doomed, decayed lies.
Your future and your truth must rest strong, must grasp strongly this faith:
You are not abandoned by God here–you are embraced by the touch of God, not by squeeze of death and doom–the hand is gentle and strong that lifts you all up, protects and strengthens you, preserves humanity as its blind will fades and the pure power of
reestablishes divine roots of grace upon this vaunted earth.
This is your and my destiny:
you have nothing left to fear:
you are eternal beings.
You are blessed with truth.
Drink the cup slowly and gladly.
From your stresses and strains emerge
the essence of being human
Awake in love, peace, truth, joy, power,
And so it is.
