Asking for a Sign from Above

You might ask for a sign. If you were given a sign, would you know how to interpret it?

Ask a sign of the LORD your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven….

The Lord himself will give you a sign. –Isaiah 7:11, 14-16

sign-1462551_640“Changes in the world have progressed very far, and yet humanity has not responded. The situation has become critical, and yet people act as if nothing were happening beyond their own personal interests. And as long as they have a job and are free to carry on their pleasurable hobbies, what does it matter? When people think like this, they are headed for catastrophe. They do not see the early warning signs of what is coming. They do not feel the inclinations and the signals from Knowledge. They are unresponsive to themselves and to the world, and they think their discomfort is simply a psychological problem. They pace the floor at night or they cannot sleep well. They have anxiety and think, ‘Oh, well, this is just my psychological problem.’ And even to the extent that they can experience their response to this movement of the world, they misinterpret it.”–Living The Way of Knowledge, Chapter 9: Sharing the Way of Knowledge with Others

Give ear, … You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth … Stir up your might, and come to save us!

Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved.

O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?

You have fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in full measure.

You make us the scorn of our neighbors; our enemies laugh among themselves.

Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved.–Psalm 80:1-7

warning“Who has the courage and the strength to recognize that this is a calling—a calling for service and contribution; a calling for them to reconsider their lives, their circumstances, their activities and their obligations?” —The Race to Save Human Civilization

We have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name, including yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.–Romans 1:5-6

“The world is giving you signs about what is coming, giving you clues as to what to expect in your environment, in your nation, in your economy and in the more immediate circumstances of your life. Knowledge, the deeper intelligence within you, is also giving you signs, clues and warnings. But you cannot hear Knowledge if your mind is preoccupied, if you are busy all the time racing about with your busy schedule and all of your activities. You might feel certain things. You might have sensations of concern or anxiety. You might have a profound and lucid dream at night. But if you do not give these your attention—to consider them, to investigate them, to ask questions concerning them—then the whole value of your inner guidance is being lost upon you.”–The Power of Seeing (December 30, 2008)

Extraordinary events may require special recognition.

rain-1570854_640Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means, “God is with us.” When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus.–Matthew 1:18-25

Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

“You are already surrounded by the permanent creation, but your eyes cannot see it, your ears cannot hear it, your fingers cannot touch it because your senses were only established to recognize physical things—things that are moving, objects that are moving, sounds that are changing. The Greater Reality in which you live is all around you. You have never left it, but given your reliance upon your senses, you cannot experience it directly without a certain kind of preparation.”–What Is Creation?

Eyes to See

The eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped;

Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert;

A highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way. –Isaiah 35: 5,6,8a

God has given you the eyes to see and the ears to hear, but they are different from what you do today and what you understand today.”–The Recitation (April 1, 2011)

…who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry.

The LORD sets the prisoners free; the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.

The LORD watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.–Psalm 146:5-9

no-evil“What informs individuals’ decisions will make all the difference. What voice they listen to, whether it be the power and the presence of Knowledge that God has given to them to guide them and to protect them, or whether it be the voice of their culture or the voice of fear or the voice of anger or ambition.” —God Is Moving Humanity in a New Direction

Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors!

As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.–

James 5:9-10

“A misunderstanding here could be very damaging and dangerous. For you will hear various voices, but you will not know what to listen to. Without the deeper Knowledge within you that God has placed there to guide you, how can you tell the difference? And if you cannot respond to the Revelation from God, how will you respond to the truth in anything?” —The Voice of the Revelation

Matthew 11:2-11
11:2 When John heard in prison what the Messiah was doing, he sent word by his disciples

11:3 and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?”

11:4 Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see:

11:5 the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them.

11:6 And blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me.”

11:7 As they went away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?

11:8 What then did you go out to see? Someone dressed in soft robes? Look, those who wear soft robes are in royal palaces.

11:9 What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.

11:10 This is the one about whom it is written, ‘See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’

11:11 Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

“Here you will see what is really important. It will not be intellectual brilliance, it will not be eloquence or beauty or charm or the force of personality, for people who possess these things may be the last to see and the last to know.”–God’s Power and Presence in the World

 

The wolf shall live with the lamb

 

For humanity to become unified, individuals must become unified, within themselves and with other people. This is how a new fabric of unity is established. The great tapestry of life is woven strand by strand, person by person. Do not think another will do this for you. Do not think such great things are only left up to people who are great, who are heroes or heroines, for this is your responsibility. This is your calling—not to gain spiritual immunity, not to become all knowing or all powerful, but to join your mind with other minds in Knowledge, to become stronger than you are or ever could be as an individual. —Living The Way of Knowledge, Chapter 6: The Pillar of Spiritual Development

The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them.

The cow and the bear shall graze, their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

The nursing child shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put its hand on the adder’s den.

They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain; for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. –Isaiah 11:6-9

People are full of grievance. They are full of needs. They are full of, in some cases, desperate needs—poverty and oppression. The leaders of the world are either blind or cannot communicate what they have been told, what they see and know. So the peoples of the nations remain ignorant about the greatest event in human history, the greatest challenge to human freedom and sovereignty and the greatest opportunity for human unity and cooperation. For you will not be able to engage with a Greater Community of life as a warring and conflicting set of tribes and nations. You will have no strength and efficacy there, and your vulnerability will be so apparent to others.–Entering the Greater Community (May 27, 2011)

Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to a king’s son.

May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.

May the mountains yield prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness.

May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor. — Psalm 72:1-4

If you are not humbled before God, how can you be humbled before anyone else? That is why the New Message has been brought to the people and not to the leaders, who have elevated themselves and concealed themselves and fortified themselves and isolated themselves. They are circumscribed by how they have created their position in life. It will be more difficult for them even though the New Message is for them as well. Stand in judgment of the New Message and you will not see. You will not hear. And you will not know. You will be deaf and blind and arrogant all at once. And the Heavenly Host will shake their heads. ‘It is so unfortunate. That person could not respond. They could do so much for the world! They are lost in their idea of themselves. They cannot see beyond their previous investment and their position and their accomplishments and acquisitions.’–God’s Power & Presence in the World (April 23, 2011)

May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another. —Romans 15:5

rescueBe aware, the average citizen, that you too have a responsibility to follow the wisdom and Knowledge that God has placed within you, to discover this wisdom and Knowledge and not to violate it because of anger or revenge, rage or greed. You too have a responsibility, for the outcome is not simply up to the leaders of the nations and the religions. It is ultimately up to every person.

Take heed then of this great warning. This warning is born of the love of God, but it is a warning nonetheless. It is warning you against the great possibility for error. It is advising you to turn to the Knowledge of God that lives within you—beyond your thinking mind and beyond the ideas, concepts and beliefs that have been historically established within humanity.–The Fate of Nations (April 17, 2007 )

Matthew 3:1-12
3:1 In those days John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, proclaiming,

3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

3:3 This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.'”

3:4 Now John wore clothing of camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.

3:5 Then the people of Jerusalem and all Judea were going out to him, and all the region along the Jordan,

3:6 and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

3:7 But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

3:8 Bear fruit worthy of repentance.

3:9 Do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our ancestor’; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.

3:10 Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

3:12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”

To you who would take up the sword in the name of religion or political advantage: You must realize that you are violating God’s will for humanity. And though the Creator will not punish you, you will within yourself step away from the Knowledge of God within yourself. You will cast yourself into darkness and confusion. And you will lead your peoples and your nation into conflict, desolation and ruin. For you are beyond the time in which one nation can simply profit from the decline of another, for the whole world is now at stake.

If you would take up the sword in the name of religion or political advantage, you will violate God’s Plan for humanity. Though God will not punish you directly, you will separate yourself and turn away from the Knowledge of God that is within you, that God has placed within you for your own protection and redemption. And you will cast yourself into chaos and conflict, into rage and misery, and bring ruin and desolation to your people.

This is a great risk, and this will be the great temptation of humanity—for people to exercise their grievances against one another, to exercise their ancient animosities, for nations to begin to compete and enter into conflict with other nations, believing it is for the well-being of their nation or for the will of God.

But you are deceived. You are in error. You are violating God’s Will and Plan for humanity. Though God will not punish you directly, you will separate yourself from God’s Wisdom and God’s Will. You will enter into confusion and darkness, into grievance and ultimately into despair.

Take heed, then, the nations of the world, the leaders of the world and the citizens of the world. Heed these words, for they come from the Divine will and presence. They represent the Knowledge that has been placed within you to guide and to protect you. This is the same Knowledge that is here to guide and protect all of humanity.–The Fate of Nations (As revealed to God’s Messenger
Marshall Vian Summers on April 17, 2007 in Istanbul, Turkey)
