THE APOCALYPSE OF JOHN
A few years before the end of the first century, after the advent of
new doctrine, since the spiritual forces operate an analysis of the world situation bitterness in the face of the future.
Under the aegis of Jesus, establish new lines of progress for civilization, marking the initial features of the European countries in modern times. Rome no longer is, then, to the invisible plane, but an infectious focus that is necessary to neutralize or remove. All of the high gifts had been neglected by the imperial city, transformed into a Vesuvius passions and exhaustion.
All events subsequent to the existence of John are set forth therein.
It is true that often the apostolic description penetrates the darker ground; We see that his human expression could not faithfully copy the divine expression of his visions of thrilling interest in the history of mankind. Wars, future nations, Forthcoming torments, commercialism, the ideological struggles of Western civilization, are there detailed glimpsed. And the most painful figure, there related, which still offers the modern world view, it is well that the erring church of Rome, symbolized by the beast dressed in purple and drunk with the blood of the saints.
Identification of the Apocalyptic BEAST
Says Revelation that the beast could say great things and blasphemies for 42 months, adding that the number was 666 (Rev. XIII, 5 e18). Examining the importance of symbols that time and following the track of interpretations, we can take each month as of 30 years instead of 30 days, obtaining thus a period of 1260 years common, precisely the period between 610 and 1870 of our era, when the Papacy was consolidating after its inception, with the Emperor Phocas, in 607, and the decree of papal infallibility with Pius IX in 1870, which marked the decay and the lack of authority of the Vatican, in the face of scientific, philosophical and religious evolution of humanity.
Regarding the number 666, without referring to interpretations of Greeks numbers in its values, we should appeal to the Roman numerals on its significance, to be more publicized and well known, explaining that it is the sumo-Pontiff of the Roman Church who uses the titles:
“VICARIVS GENERALIS DEI IN TERRIS”, “VICARIVS FILII DEI” and “DVX CLERI”
which means “Vicar General of God on earth“, “Vicar of the Son
God “and” Prince of the clergy. “It will be enough to the student a little game of patience, adding Roman numerals found in every papal title in order to find the same equation of 666 in each of them. It is clear, therefore, that Revelation of John has special importance for the fate of terrestrial mankind.
Defection of the Catholic Church
Since 1870, the year that marked to man the decay of
The church, by virtue of their spiritual defection in fulfilling the great duties entrusted by the Lord, in apostolic times, a period of profound transition marks all human activities.
In vain the world waited the Christian achievements, initiated in
Constantine’s empire. Coupled with the state and living at the table of their economic interests, the church did not take care of anything that was not its perishable kingdom. Forgotten God, never sought to match the evolution of the physical man to the spiritual man, clinging to undergrowth interests and greedy politics of the time. That’s why l now hang over the forehead the most sinister predictions.
Interpretation Chapter XIV – Title: The Apocalypse of John
Autor: Emmanuel Medium: Francisco Xavier
Interpretation: André Luis Sobreiro Participation: Roberto Source: Rede Amigo Espirita
A Caminho da Luz / On the way to the Light ISBN: 978-0-9829748-2-7 Year of Publication: 1939
André: Roberto, I do not know if you noticed, but here has a revelation. We do not enter the text and the title already has a revelation: The Apocalypse of John. There are many scholars who argue if Apocalypse was written by John or someone wrote for him. Even, for some people, making a historical survey, said that at this time, John had already disembodied.
Emmanuel is already making a revelation: The apocalypse is from John.
Roberto: But at the seminar we watched in Sao Jose de Rio Preto, with Haroldo Dutra, he spoke at length about the Apocalypse of John. The Haroldo Dutra is one of the great scholars of the Apocalypse. And he already revealed at the beginning, Revelation is from John.
André: It’s John. Emmanuel is already making a positive, concrete revelation: The Book of Revelation is from John. For us, the Spiritist, is already solved the problem.
The teacher begins his text: “A few years before the end of the first century (André says:. Emmanuel fixing date a bit before the year 100), after the advent of the new doctrine, that is, Christianity, since the spiritual forces operate an analysis bitterness situation of the world in the face of the future “
André says: Most important. Why Emmanuel is saying that spiritual forces operate an analysis of the situation embittering the world in the face of the future?
Roberto commented: André here he is saying: “a few years before the end of the first century, John has lived 90 years, close to one hundred years, then, before John’s disembodiment, has already been written. At the time of John‘s proving that he wrote the Apocalypse.
André: Yes, absolutely.
Roberto continues: And look what Jesus is worrying, “the spiritual forces operate an analysis of the bitter situation of the world”, before closing the first 100 years.
André: That’s what I was concerned to explain, Roberto. By the year 100, the situation of the world had already muddled again. Jesus was a flash of light on a dark world. But shortly after Jesus returns to the moors the situation of the world has descended again.
I mean, a little before the year 100, spirituality did an analysis of the planet and humanity had already deviated from the straight path again.
Roberto: So spirituality was already predicting what was going to happen to those people of that region.
André corrects: We. Emmanuel continues: “Under the aegis of Jesus (the aegis means defense, protection, shelter) establishes new lines of progress for the civilization, marking the initial traces of European countries in modern times. Rome, is no longer is, then, to the invisible plan, if not, an infectious focus that is necessary to neutralize or remove “.
André: The Roman Empire had lost its way
Roberto says: infectious mean that is contaminating. It is a disease that infects the entire population of Rome, reaching the neighbors.
André: The problem was this: Rome was an empire that would be expanding, conquering new lands and new people. Roma took their culture to those conquered nations. Then, all nations Were dominated by Rome, it was just getting as well contaminated as Rome. This is the term. So bad, greedy as Rome.
Roberto: The controversial spirits, to the Christianity would dominate neighboring countries. So you need to what? Neutralize. What did Jesus do? He neutralized. Surrounded.
André: “All the gifts from above, had been neglected by the imperial city”
André makes a comment: Jesus commanded all that was possible to not have to neutralize or remove: “For the love or the pain.” Jesus sent the message: “Stop before it is necessary to take drastic measures.” Rome did not hear. This is what Emmanuel is transmitted across the “All the gifts from above, had been neglected by the imperial city, transformed in Vesuvio‘s passions and depletion.” Rome lost its way. Allowing the lower passions dominate. Why volcano? It is an uncontrollable force. It does not exist, nothing in the world that controls a volcano. The science will not produce anything that controls a volcano by eruption.
Summarizing: Rome lost control of itself. It is like a cancer, it took a huge size. I mean, you do not control. You have to weed out.
“The Divine Master, Jesus calls the spaces the spirit of John, which is still stuck in the bonds of earth. (he get out of his body), and the astonished and afflicted apostle read the symbolic language of invisible (Andrew says:.. Symbolic language Jesus does not tellby narrating him what will happen). He sees everything in out-of-body.
Now we will pay close attention on this symbolic language. Because when he comes back to his body, he has to write down what he saw. Exacly in that point it will give a confusion error). Recommends him the Lord that he delivered his knowledge to the planet, with a warning to all nations and all peoples of the earth “(That is why he spoke. Give the seven churches Seven is the entire planet, Seven is the number unity. Look how interesting!
“And the old apostle of Patmos (Greek island), transmits to his disciples the extraordinary warnings of the Apocalypse”
Andrew: John narrated, ie he dictated what he saw and the scribe wrote down.
“All facts subsequent to John’s existence is there provided”
Andrew: Here’s a revelation. Revelation begins more or less after 100 years of Christ. “All the facts, after the existence of Joao is there provided.” When begins the narration? More or less after 100.
“It is true that often the apostolic description penetrates the darker ground difficult to understand”
André: Why? He will now explain: “It is seen that his human expression could not copy faithfully the divine expression of his visions of thrilling interest to the history of humanity”
André: That is, what he saw (outside the body), he failed to pass to the scribes, the symbolic, prophetic visions.
It has a very big difference between what we see a psychic ecstasy and what we able to pass a book. Human language, it is limited. We can not step into the role 100%, for example, a psychic ecstasy. This is what Emmanuel is saying, John could not, at some points, faithfully pass on what he saw.
Then, at some points the apocalypse is doubtful.
Roberto: It is a language that needs to study hard in order to understand.
André: There are points where John failed. Emmanuel is saying. Let’s read again: “It is true that often the apostolic description penetrates the darker terrain, difficult to understand. See that his human expression, (when he returns to the body, say by the way, a body with almost 100 years old, limited, tired, hurt) could not copy accurately the divine expression of his visions of palpitating interest for the history of mankind. “ Look, John not realized. It is not a grotesque failure is not an intentional failure, but it is a fail.
Roberto: He may not copy accurately, I mean, he did not copy 100% that Jesus gave to him.
André: He saw and, at the time to describe he did not have conditions to express what he saw. Because there are things we see, Roberto, that human language has no words, no words.
Roberto: It’s like that old saying says: “I learned for me, now I do not know to transmit.” , To pass this knowledge is difficult.
Andrew: Exactly. Human language is limited to transcendent things. Your example is in the context that we want to pass. So, John had no conditions.
Roberto: Well, I believe that these failures are not so great, but, minimal, little things. For if they had something that would interfere the greater spirituality would not publish some teachings that would hamper. He published with flaws, but these teachings were of great help to the humanities.
André: It’s possible. Emmanuel continues: “Wars, future nations, the Forthcoming torments, commercialism, the ideological struggles of Western civilization, is provided in detail”
Andrew: All symbolically. Would give a deep study How does John calls wars? It has a symbol for war.
Roberto: It’s all in the basis of symbol, then?
André: What is the symbol for the nations that have emerged? What is the symbol for commercialism? What is the symbol for these ideological struggles? Would give a deep study, find out what the meaning of these symbols.
Sea in the Bible is war. “And I saw a beast came from the sea” = it is a nation that rose after a war, one empire that arose after a war. Two symbols here, we already know. War: sea. Beast: nations, empires. Look how interesting!
“And the most painful figure there related (the Apocalypse) which still offers a vision of the world, it is well that the erring church of Rome, symbolized by the beast, dressed in purple and drunk with the blood of the saints.” Revelation: The Emmanuel is saying that one apocalypse beast is the Catholic church.
Roberto: Emmanuel is saying?
Andrew: Yesss. Let’s review a little longer on this figure, more painful, listed on the apocalypse, which John says. This vision of the modern world: The wayward Church of Rome. The Catholic church. We can not criticize the Catholic church itself, towards our brothers Catholics, but the Catholic power, the dome.
Roberto: It is because the Catholic Church was that it brought the documents of Christianity.
André: Christianity itself, until around 1857, so Kardec deliver on the Espiritism doctrine. Then we can not come out criticizing, judging.
Roberto: Never. It was she who saved the documents and brought us Christianity.
André: So when Emmanuel tells us that the wayward Church of Rome is one of the beasts seen in the Apocalypse, he is speaking of power, the abuses that were committed, not Catholics of our brothers. It is logical that have a lot of good people there.
Roberto. Logical, but the Catholic church symbolizes the empire, the field that had in the world, both in the government, as the religious part. She had a power to dominate the nations.
André: Exactly. It is this power of Rome to dominate consciences being convicted of Emmanuel. Is this empire being called a beast. The Roman power in the religious sense, that John saw as a beast. But the power, and not the good souls, who are in the Catholic church. For God’s sake
André: So, continuing: “symbolized the beast, dressed in purple. This purple clothes is luxury, adorned clothes with precious stones, and drunk with the blood of the saints,
André:. Because often the saints did not know what was the Catholic church and they were canonized . Then, the catholic church were saying that the saints were “Catholics martyrs.”
Sometimes the person did something good, cured someone, doing well things in a very remote village where there had no idea what was the Catholic religion… And often, during the inquisition, many inocent people were killed by the Catholic church. There are reports of it. Often the catholic church killed these people, later they said, that the saints were “Catholics martyrs.”
Roberto gives an example: Joan of Arc.
André: And then canonized these people as if they were Catholics saints. Hence the distortion of the image: “drunk with the blood of the saints“, they often killed and then they themselves canonized. So, this is the symbology: dressed in purple, luxury, with stones with gold, drunk with the blood of the saints, which often killed they themselves and beatification of, canonized. And often, the higher spirit (saint) who did the work that made the cure and made fenomemo in which our brothers Catholics call “miracles” did not know the Catholic institution. But they canonized like a priest, a Catholic friar and distorted all the facts.
Roberto: It was good for us to study and analyze this part.
André: We close here the first part of today, going to the second part of our study.
Study No. 50 -. Chapter XIV – Identification of the apocalyptic beast
André: Let’s read this sub-item with a lot of attention because it has a lot of information that we need to discuss, it is a very important topic: Says Emmanuel: “Tell the apocalypse that the beast could say great things and blasphemies for 42 months, adding that it´s number was 666, citation of the apocalypse, chapter XIII, verses 5 and 18. “
André: We will discuss this item, then: This beast that Emmanuel is telling us, that could mean great things and blasphemies for 42 months, is that we have already quoted in the previous study, Emmanuel identifies as the wayward Church of Rome, symbolized by the beast, dressed in purple and drunken with the blood of the saints. It was the end of our study of the book “Towards the Light” from last week.
So, we need to understand that Judaism wore “symbolism”, when making their narratives. And Emmanuel will help us interpret this symbolism now. So, we will try to interpret them as best as possible, paying close attention in the interpretation of symbols.
Emmanuel mention two verses of the Apocalypse, which we will now read:
Revelation XIII, 5 John the Evangelist tells us, “In the beast was given a mouth to speak arrogant words and blasphemies and he was given authority to act for 42 months.”
Much attention to this end: The beast had authority to act for 42 months. This information is very important for the continuity of our study.
And verse 18 John tells us: “Here is wisdom. The one who has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is six hundred sixty six, half, half, half 666 “
André: Come on. Continuing the book on the way to the light, then join the informations. Emmanuel continues: “Examining the importance of symbols at that time, (Andrew says: Look at the symbolism of Judaism, how Judaism wore symbols, used images on their narratives), and following the right course of interpretations, (André : that is, Emmanuel will prevent the distorted interpretations and will give us the proper course), we can take each month as 30 years.
André: Emmanuel is showing us that, in this apocalyptic time scale, every month has for us the time of 30 years. Each day, one year. Each month, 30 years. It is good we make it clear that the Jewish month, he has 30 days. There are no months of 31 days, nor the month of February 28 days.
The Jewish month, has invariably 30 days. The Jewish year has invariably 360 days.
So 42 months X 30 days = 1260 days, which is the cycle of this apocalyptic beast, quoted in the book “Revelation”.
Some times, John the Evangelist will speak in 1260 days. At other times, he will speak in 42 months.
42 months x 30 days = 1260 days. He is citing the same information in two different ways. Emmanuel continues: “We take every month, to be 30 years instead of 30 days, thereby obtaining a period of 1,260 common years, precisely the period between 610 and 1870 of our era after Christ.”
André: The cycle of the beast, the beast power cycle, dressed in purple and drunk with the blood of the saints. Therefore, the power cycle of the Catholic church began in 610 after Christ and ends in 1870 after Christ.
Let’s see the facts that mark the beginning and the end: “When the papacy was consolidating after emerging with the Emperor Phocas in 607”
André comments: 3 years after the Emperor Phocas, the papacy arises. Then Emmanuel tells us here that this story to say that Simon Peter was the first Pope is gibberish. The papacy begins in the year 610, although Emmanuel not tell us here, who was the first Pope, unless he is saying that the Emperor Phocas was the first Pope. By then, we would have to study a little more.
And how it ends the power cycle of the Catholic church? “And the decree of papau infallibility, with Pius IX in 1870“
André: This information with infallibility in 1870, Emmanuel himself had given us in the book Emmanuel, psychographic in 1937, a year before the book “Towards the Light.”
Therefore, in 610 after Christ, it begins the power cycle of the Catholic church. In 1870, with the decree of papau infallibility, closes the power cycle of the Catholic church. Was an extreme act, as we often say, an appealing act of the power loss of consciousness, saying: “When the Pope takes a decision, is inspired by God. So the Pope was infallible.
Aware that begin to lose power, they decree the papal infallibility. Such as fear of losing temporal power, but actually what they lost was the power to dominate minds. And the beast dressed in purple and drunk with the blood of the saints, strode to the end of its cycle.
André: and Emmanuel continued: “What marks the decline and the Vatican official‘s absence.“ Authority that had already taken a serious blow in the sixteenth century with the Protestant Reformation. Because you can not deny that Luther made a big damage to the Catholic organization. “The beast apocalyptic had taken a very serious blow, but managed to rise again. But now, the lack of Catholic authority reached the peak.
And, in order of not lose power, decreed to papal infallibility in the face of scientific evolution, philosophical and religious of mankind “– Humanity has looked to philosophy with new eyes, while science progressed, and the religious notion of humanity had matured.
But the way the Catholic religion to think of man’s religious notion God did not change. Humanity no longer felt more security. And then the Emmanuel reason to say: “the absence of the Vatican‘s authority in the face of scientific evolution, philosophical and religious of mankind.”
And the guiding continues: “As for the number 666, if we refer the interpretations with the Greeks numbers on their values, we must appeal to Roman numerals on its signification, to be more publicized and well known”
André: Look at this. Roman numerals were more widespread at the time.
And it is this numbering Roman numerals, which is the key to confirm that is the papacy, which is the cycle of the power of Rome, which is the scheme, not to lose the temporal power, the beast dressed in purple and drunk with the blood the saints. Let us deeply study what Emmanuel tells us now:
“Explaining what is the most holy supreme of the Roman Church, the Pope who uses the titles of: Vicarius Generalis Dei in Terris, Vicarius Filii Dei and Duquis Cleri, which means:
Vicarius Generalis Dei in Terris: General Vicar of God on earth
Vicarius Filii Dei Vicar son of God
Duquis Cleri: Prince of the Clergy
It will suffice to the student a little game of patience, adding Roman numerals, found in every papal title in order to find the same equation of 666 in each of them. “
In the first title: Vicarius Generalis Dei in Terris
V: 5 I: 1 C:100 A: 0 R: 0 I: 1 V: 5 S: 0
G: 0 e : 0 n : 0 e: 0 r :0 a : 0 l : 50 i :1 s:0
D : 500 e : 0 i : 1
in i: 1 n : 0
Terris T: 0 e: 0 r: 0 r: 0 i: 1 s: 0
The word Vicarius: 112
The word Generalis: 51
The word Dei: 501
The word in: 1
The word Terris: 1
All in all totaling: 666
Vicarius Filii Dei
V5 i 1 c100 a 0 r0 i1 V5 s0
F0 i 1 l 50 i 1 i 1
D 500 e0 i1
The word Vicarius: 112
All in all totaling: 666
500 D v 5 x 10
C 100 l and 50 r 1 i
The word Dux: 515
The word Cleri: 151
All in all totaling: 666
André: The three sentences Emmanuel gives us, in which the Pope is called in the Catholic church, if you add the Roman numerals, will be given 666. Proving that the papacy was the beast, dressed in purple and drunk with the blood of the saints John the Evangelist saw and recorded in Revelation, Chapter XIII, verse 5:18, which Emmanuel cited here in the book “the path of Light.”
Only the level of curiosity, we can mention also, all scholars are adamant that the Revelation and the prophet Daniel in the Old Testament are supplements of each other.
In Daniel the prophet, Chapter VII verse 25, Daniel tells us about an animal who will speak against the Most High, will oppress his saints and try to change times and laws:
The saints will be given into his hands for a time, times and half time. Time, times and half a time.
Time is 1
Times is 2
Half-time is ½
1 + 2 + 1/2 = 3 ½
Therefore: 3 ½ is half of a cycle.
Joining the two verses, 1260 years is half a cycle.
So, this cycle of the beast is half a life cycle.
Half of the cycle, the beast tried to bewilder the world in religious terms. Now we have, starting from 1870 over 1260 years to rebuild the world religiously, until the arrival of “Happy World“, which is the fourth stage 4, according to Allan Kardec in the Gospel According to Spiritism, Chapter 3obviously through the world regeneration and through the transition that has already begun, in which we are passing through.
André: Emmanuel continues: “It is seen as the Apocalypse of John, has singular importance to the destiny of earthly humanity.”
André: explains: It was not for nothing that Jesus chose to quote the Bible Revelation. A book where would revelations of paramount importance.
When Jesus calls John the Evangelist unfolding (out of body), he makes the revelations and take providences. We study it a little bit ago, when we talk about the wording of the final text, spirituality participated in the writing of the final text and the choice of books that would go to the Bible.
When Jesus calls John the Evangelist and show these pictures and take providences so that the apocalypse was mentioned in the Bible, it was providential. And we need to study this book, even if it is a book of extreme difficulty for us.
And to close the first part of today, closing also the chapter 14: THE SCRIPT of light and love. Emmanuel tells us: “But let us return to our purposes, fulfilling us to recognize in the Gospels a divine wonderful light, the incessant flow of centuries has only been able to revive and rekindle.”
André: The times, the progress, scientific progress, for example, the philosophical progress, growth goers number, of the more dogmatic religions, multiplication of the false prophets which we are seeing in the transition we are going through, none of this has power to outshine the light of the Gospel.
The Christ‘s words are words of eternal life. Neither time nor space has the power to decrease. This is what Emmanuel is saying, “Is that they keep the score sheet, the record of all the compendiums of peace and truth into the lives of men.”
André: Nothing will bring us peace: Neither power nor money, nor the professions, qualifications … Nothing will bring us peace. Only the gospel will bring us peace, will fill our hearts with joy, as Jesus told the Samaritan woman: “I have a water. If you drink, you never feel thirsty “is the pure water of love, through which all souls can ascend the luminous mountains of wisdom from heaven. It is the Gospel which will take us to this point, for these heavenly moorlands.
That will give us to meet the highest circles of earth spirituality. And who knows, even the most advanced worlds one day. Sirios where Alcyone lives and other more advanced worlds. In this and other galaxies….
Book “On the way to Light“, chapter 24. Subtitle: Clarification of the Catholic Church
André: The title itself already brings us to the need to seek synonymous. Defection, according to the dictionary Aurelio, means “party of abandonment, belief,” bringing us a sense of drift, will surely comment to us the moment the Catholic Church turned away, the way of conducting souls to Jesus. And Emmanuel tells us: “Since 1870, the year that marked the man the decline of the church”
André: A lot of attention to this point, because in 1870 marks the end of the Church cycle. Let us remember what was said a few chapters ago, when the benefactor told us that the cycle of the beast, cited chapter XIII book of Revelation, written by John the Evangelist would have 1260 years in Revelation symbolically, for 1,260 days.
Emmanuel tells us that these 1260 years began in the year 610 and then adding to 1,260, the we arrive to the year 1870.
And which marks the end of the power of the Catholic church, according to Emmanuel himself. The first work he brought us, through Chico Xavier, was the papal infallibility.
The decree of papal infallibility marks the end of the power cycle of the Catholic church. It was maximum appeal, that extreme attitude of those who can no longer manipulate minds. And with the fear of loss of power, decreed that all the supreme pontiff said, would come from God.
Because ponifice supreme, the Pope, the representative of God on earth, everything he said, would come directly from God. The papal infallibility in 1870 marks the end of the church’s power cycle. And Emmanuel continued, “because of its spiritual defection in the fulfillment of the great duties entrusted by the Lord …”
André: says: Then Jesus entrusts this church the mission of conducting souls to Christ-the obligation, the duty of the Catholic Church was to lead souls to peace, to perfection. And the defection using the same term that the benefactor, brings us this connotation of a deviation from on the way. A detour, referring to the task that was assigned to the church, to do what Jesus asks the Apostle Peter in the twenty-first chapter of the Evangelist John notes: “. Feed my sheep”
“In apostolic times, a period of deeper transitions mark all human activities.”
Interesting to note here, when Emmanuel tells us “a period of deeper transitions mark all human activities.” Because we cling to the very concept of planetary transition and sometimes we forget, we do not realize the cycle of personal transition through which we are passing. Our values are being rebuilt.
So there is a dire need to rebuild ourselves. The transition involves our hearts. Because values and feelings are being rebuilt and before build new values, it is necessary to deconstruct the old values.
We are being asked to give up everything that interested us for millennia: Money, power, sex, social status, all this being destroyed.
And the new values need to be built in our hearts.
So, all human activities are being reconstructed on their moral values.
So we are seeing so much confusion. Because, what guided us, what led us, we no longer guide, no longer orients us more.
Hence the great confusions who are going on in our professional lives, in our family life, our social life, including our religious life. Because the old values no longer satisfy us anymore.
So, it is a necessity, we see life with different eyes, with other values.
And Emmanuel continues: “In vain, the world waited for the Christians achievements, initiated in Constantine’s empire, together with the state and living at the table of their economic interests, the church did not take care of anything that was not its perishable kingdom.”
When Emmanuel tells us of his perishable kingdom, it is clear to us that he is reminding us what Jesus said in the gospel verse, in fact commented by Allan Kardec in Chapter 2 of the Gospel According to Spiritism: “My kingdom is not of this world”.
It is quite clear to us that the church was concerned more with Cesar kingdom, reminding us also what Jesus told us: “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what is God’s.”
The church is concerned with the kingdom of Caesar, with the perishable realm.
Jesus never aimed, according to what we have found and we can interpret the Spiritist texts, to build perishable kingdoms.
The idea has always been to build the heavenly kingdom. The kingdom of God in our hearts. And our attempt has been often unconsciously rebuild this kingdom of power in the world.
Therefore so many people do not open hand of power. There are those who, since thousand years, has been fighting for time financial power and do not understand or pretend not to understand the need to move to give up, to open hands these values.
The church, at some point in its history, break away from Christ and allied to the state and has been helping to take care of perishable powerful kingdom, forgetting what Jesus told Pilate: “My kingdom is not of this world.”
Emmanuel continues: “Forgotten God, he never sought to match the evolution of the physical man to the spiritual man, clinging to creep interests and greedy politics of the time.”
André: Interesting that here. How often do we forget the spiritual man evolution, the evolution of the spirit and take care only of the evolution of man body? And we care about building empires to bring in luxury, comfort, facilities and forget often that without the cycles of pain, suffering there is no learning.
Often we forget these necessary movements to grow in spiritual feeling and we were often concerned only with the growth of the physical man, just looking for the pleasure of matter, the body, the flesh.
That power is being dismantled by spiritual forces.And that power is being dismantled by spiritual forces.
And do not be deceived, because there are spirits living in psychosphere of the earth, trying to not let all this, power scheme, disassembled, fall. There are spirits living in psychosphere of the earth. Some incarnate others disembodied, making everything possible so that this power scheme does not end. Just as there are spirits, deviating a little commentary of interpretation, who are fighting, they are doing all possible and imaginable movements, to maintain the spirit that lives in psychosphere of the earth, incarnated or not, remain in the ignorance. Because ignorance interests to those in power: Whether politicians, heads of state, religious leader or unscrupulous businessmen
The chance of falling from power, when their protected ignore the form of renovation, the possibility of renewal is very small. Let us not forget that. Concerns the mighty men keeping ignorance. Is urgent to clarificationthe growth.
And the Roman Church has opened hands, of this movement it was her task to lead souls to Christ.
But, Let us not deceive once again, my brothers, my dear listeners. Because we are not talking about an institution. When we commented on the Catholic Church, we are not bragging about an institution.
We are bragging about spirits accustomed to power. And many of them are right now reincarnated. These spirits, accustomed to power, are reincarnated in the spiritualist movement, to try to see the relationship of man to God in another way, and to redeem the mistakes of the past. Then, we see Spiritist people with the central tendency of power, making all movements inside a spiritualist home, taking part of the movement of a city … The Spiritist movement concerning a town, a state turns around it, and everything will happen the way that this person wants.
Because we bring to the Spiritist movement everything that has been learned and assimilated during millenniums in innumerable incarnations. Let us not forget that the fact we have become Spiritist does not change us automatically.
And the risk of bringing to the Spiritist activities such atavism is very large.
It’s just us to think, not the level of judgment or criticism, but as a form of analysis and case …
It’s just we think of the situations of “the owners of Spiritist homes.” Everything revolves around one person.
And woe to those who disagree with this person, woe to those who try to show where are the gaps, at doctrinal level. This unfortunately happens a lot.
We need help, we need to pray, we must pray to the spirits friends, to enlighten our souls. For these souls rediscover the path of self-elevation and the elevation of those who of them come close to.
And Emmanuel continues, ending the first part of the study of today’s morning: “That is why, right now hang him on the forehead, the most sinister predictions“
André: Vaticine means predictions, prophecies. And the prophecy, is nothing more than a revelation in the sense of the cause and effect principle.
In 1938 Emmanuel is telling us that prophecy calls predictions difficult sinister that hovered over the Catholic church.
Nothing more, nothing less than the fulfillment of the laws in the sense of the cause and effect principle: What was planted in the past would be collected right now.
And as the church, deserted, stepped down from their duty to lead souls and often ledrather the wrong direction, arrived in 1938, the time of harvest.
And these spirits who enjoy power, who like to centralize itself activities, are having a chance to see their faults. Deconstruct itself this centralizing movement, son of pride and selfishness, and reconstruct a healthier religiosity.
Many of them are learning this through the hard way in Spiritist activities.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, friend master of the souls doctor, we thank you Lord, for more this blessed opportunity that we are having this evening of Saturday, that we may be here together, seeking the understanding of the spiritist doctrine, seeking the understanding of your gospel, the Lord in the light of comforter, that your goodness promised us 2,000 years ago.
We remember, Lord, thy celebrated words recorded by the evangelist John, whose apocalypse is being cited in studies, when in Chapter XIV of the notes written by this evangelist, between verses XV and XVII, you told us that: “If you love me , keep my commandments and I will pray the Father will give you another comforter to be with you forever. ”
We thank the Lord for sending, by the advent of the spiritist doctrine, and thank you also, Sir, the psychographic work of Francisco Candido Xavier, which has brought so much light to our lives, our experiences, which has enabled both in our intimate reform. Because Chico Xavier, Lord, was the medium of spirits group, led by Emmanuel, who had the mission to revive primitive Christianity in its original purity. And we know that the mission of Francisco Candido Xavier was not easy, and we thank him, we thank his mentor, Emmanuel, and the whole team who used that humility and that most enlightened hand to bring us so much light, so much information, so much blessing, and by consequence, so much possibility for growth.
That at the meeting today let us be protected and illuminated by the Emmanuel team, the mentors of the portal of light, which we know we are already being supported and enlightened by them, we have no doubt about that.
Thanks to their presence and we ask clarification to discuss these maxims, in the clearest possible way, so that we all have an understanding of the scriptures and we may spread this understanding properly, safely in the light of the comforter.
That we may reflect this light, Lord, as we try to develop our own. But that we are mirrors, fewer blurry increasingly clean, reflecting light that comes from above, coming from your men of confidence. May ultimately, it comes from your great love, Master.
Love for your smaller brothers. We started at the moment the 50 study of the works of instructor Emmanuel. So be it
Every new day is a blank page in life, where we paint our daily thoughts, actions and attitudes. Today is time to paint Love, Tolerance & Faith for a Peaceful tomorrow. Chico Xavier & Miss Froggy
