What The Human Family Must Do Now

What the human family must do now

Sometimes I feel that the New Message from God is designed to be uninteresting to certain kinds of people. To those who covet wealth, the New Message says “What you don’t need will make you confused.” If you crave fame, the New Message says “The Wise remain hidden.” The New Message tells those who seek relationships “Relationships will come to you when you are prepared.” It takes a certain kind of person to engage with the New Message. Therefore, I sometimes wonder if the New Message will find its place in the heart of the human family.

What the human family must do now

But every so often I hear a report of people from all over the world finding the New Message. Some of them come from the relentless efforts of tireless advocates. Others come through seemingly chance encounters. Is it enough? I don’t know, but it’s definitely more than what would have happened had we done nothing.

In the gospel of Luke, many people in various situations asked John the Baptist what they should do to demonstrate their repentance. I share this because I dare to dream of a day when people in various situations ask “What does this New Message from God say humanity must do?” An enterprising student made a list, collected from various New Message teachings. These are not in any particular order.

  1. Humanity must cease and prevent all war. If there is another all-out war, it will be the end of humankind.
  2. The human family must unite to solve global problems. In particular, the climate becoming less hospitable, and the environment becoming more polluted and unsupportive of life.
  3. Humankind must restore the natural environment. We must give back to nature what we have taken. Replant the forests, cleanse the waters, clear the skies.
  4. The human family must limit consumption of resources. Overconsumption is the engine of war.
  5. Humanity must limit population. More people means more consumption. Please note that this must be done in the most humane way possible.
  6. Humankind must learn of the Greater Community. We must prepare for emerging into a Greater Community of intelligent life.
  7. The human family must provide for its members. There will be great stress in the future when certain regions of the world become uninhabitable due to rising seas and drying lands.
  8. Humanity must take in displaced persons. There were many of these in World War II. There may be more in the days to come.
  9. Humankind must preserve human civilization. While not many realize it, we are in a race to save human civilization.
  10. The human family must resist extraterrestrial intervention. There are craft in our skies. There are people being taken against their will. This is not benevolence.

This is what the human family must do now. I realize some people are reading this and saying “Good luck with that!” But I accept the miracles in my life as a demonstration of the presence of Knowledge. Sociologist Jem Bendell said something recently that might make a good exclamation point. “I remain a positive pessimist: I anticipate a very difficult future but continue to hunger for new ideas for how to reduce harm and find joy in the process.”

Will Our Visitors Let Us Destroy Our World?

Robert Salas Press Conference, October 19, 2021

Most of you are not familiar with Robert Salas. He is a man who has been striving mightily to tell his story and have it be known.

Will our visitors let us destroy our world?

The life story of Robert Salas is relatively ordinary. Robert Salas is a 1964 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy. He served seven years on active duty. He worked as a weapons controller, flew target drones, commanded intercontinental ballistic missiles as a launch officer, and worked as an Air Force missile propulsion engineer on the Titan III program. From 1971 to 1973 he worked as a safety and reliability engineer for Martin-Marietta Aerospace and Rockwell International on Space Shuttle design proposals. From 1974 until his retirement in 1995 he worked for the Federal Aviation Administration. Since his retirement he has working to publicize and unfold a remarkable event from 1967.

The time of this remarkable event was March 1967. The place was Malmstrom Air Force Base in northern Montana in the US. The event happened twice, once on March 16 and again on March 24. Part of the event was the sighting of a UFO by multiple witnesses on the base. The witnesses reported the object displaying remarkable speed and maneuverability. Another part was a group or flight of 10 nuclear missiles, “going off alert,” becoming unlaunchable. Two different flights of missiles were disabled, one on the 16th and the other on the 24th. Salas was on duty as a deputy missile combat crew commander deep in the underground nuclear missile control room.

The US Air Force found it unacceptable for this to become known. Captain Salas described the mechanisms used to suppress the knowledge of this event. This event has turned out to be the tip of an iceberg of similar events. Evidence for these events was presented at the October 19 press conference. There were two UFO sightings at the Hanford Ordnance Works in Washington state in 1945, where a nuclear reactor produced plutonium for nuclear weapons. In the early 1960’s at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Dr. Robert Jacobs reported a UFO disabled a launched nuclear missile with strikes of “a beam of light.” Another group of ten nuclear missiles were deactivated at Minot Air Force Base in 1966 during a UFO sighting. David Schindele spoke of this event. Robert Salas has been telling his story to people for some time now. He has been finding people with similar experiences over the years. He held a press conference similar to the recent one in 2010.

While Robert Salas didn’t mention this, there are reports of UFOs tampering with Russian nuclear weapons as well. Some of this became known after the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. One of those events occurred on October 4, 1982, near the Ukrainian town of Byelokoroviche. A disc-shaped UFO apparently hovered over a nuclear missile base for an extended period. At one point during the encounter, a number of nuclear missiles suddenly activated—without authorization from Moscow or any action being taken by the missile launch officers—and were preparing to launch. Fortunately, after 15 seconds, the anomalous activation ceased and the missiles returned to stand-by status.

Will our visitors let us destroy our world? What am I supposed to think about this? It is as if the development of nuclear power and nuclear weapons has attracted UFO scrutiny. Book One of The Allies of Humanity, published in the late 1990’s, mentions this.

“It is necessary for people everywhere to understand that humanity is emerging into a Greater Community of intelligent life. Your world is being “visited” by several alien races and by several different organizations of races. This has been actively going on for some time. There have been visitations throughout human history, but nothing of this magnitude. The advent of nuclear weapons [emphasis mine] and the destruction of your natural world have brought these forces to your shores.”

Nowadays people don’t think of nuclear tests, but in the 1950’s and 1960’s, a great many nuclear tests happened above ground. If you were a visitor from outer space, and you observed this taking place, what would you think?

Two recent public opinion polls showed UFOs were not considered a military threat. I wonder how many of the respondents to that poll were aware of these events. I think I had heard of them in passing, but I didn’t pay much attention to them at the time.

All I know is that day by day the evidence grows. The New Message from God teaches what is currently a minority viewpoint on the subject of extraterrestrials.

1) Intelligent extraterrestrial life exists
2) Extraterrestrials are intervening in human affairs today
3) This extraterrestrial intervention is a threat to human freedom

I realize some people consider this not only false, but impossible. But many things once thought to be impossible have turned out to be so. This is a passage from the revelation “The Great Challenge Awaiting Humanity.” It is one of the chapters of the recently released book “Preparing for the Greater Community.”

“Day by day the evidence grows. Day by day more people are becoming aware. But there is still tremendous ignorance and denial. There is still tremendous manipulation of the evidence. It is very hard for people to gain any reliable information now.

The governments of the world will not tell you what they know. The religious institutions of the world cannot help you. People are filled with superstition. They are filled with hope. They are filled with wild expectancy. But who can see clearly? Whose thoughts are clear and unaffected by the prevailing attitudes and beliefs of society?”

It takes a certain intellectual and emotional preparation to see clearly. I do not claim to think clearly. I claim to be working on seeing clearly. Will our visitors let us destroy our world? Maybe not. But that doesn’t imply their benevolence.

I Am A Small Part Of A Great Work

I am a small part of a great work
The Worldwide Community of the New Message from God, walking with the Messenger at the 2018 Encampment, Colorado, USA

I do not consider myself to be very important in the greater scheme of things. And yet, something in my world that has demonstrated remarkable vitality. That is the Worldwide Community of the New Message from God.

I am a small part of a great work

In the face of a difficult year, this community has made great efforts and great accomplishments. One of the goals is publication of the entire New Message from God during the lifetime of Marshall Vian Summers. The New Message from God published three books in 2020: The Pure Religion, Preparing for the Greater Community, and The Worldwide Community of the New Message from God.

Each in his own tongue

I am a small part of a great work. At the 2020 Summit, I discovered that some French-speaking students proposed translating the New Message from God many years ago. These students were trusting their deepest inclinations. This has become a much larger enterprise since then, with translation in some stage in 34 different languages. The translator community translated roughly twice as many revelations in 2020, than in 2019.

Making noises in greater amounts

I am a small part of a great work. There are many students of the New Message from God who are tireless advocates on many different social media platforms. I believe their work has borne fruit. The Society for the New Message from God reported that 106,000 people engaged with the New Message from God on their Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages in 2020. Furthermore, 413,000 people visited the New Message web site in 2020. I take great encouragement in these statistics. At present, I can only dream of the glorious day when the New Message has 106,000 students with the devotion our community currently demonstrates.

I am a small part of a great work. I have not spoken of the leadership efforts of Marshall Vian Summers and his associates here. But when I think of them, I recall this passage from the Tao Te Ching:

When the Master governs, the people
are hardly aware that he exists.
Next best is a leader who is loved.
Next, one who is feared.
The worst is one who is despised.

If you don’t trust the people,
you make them untrustworthy.

The Master doesn’t talk, he acts.
When his work is done,
the people say, “Amazing: we did it, all by ourselves!” (Tao Te Ching 17, Mitchell)

One day, our community will say something like that.

Day By Day The Evidence Grows

Day by day the evidence grows

A recent article appeared in the New York Times. The headline is “No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public.” I consider this article to be the latest in a series of articles on US government response to UFOs. This series of articles started in 2017, with an article on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). Another article in the series contains the testimonies of UFO encounters by US Navy pilots in 2014 and 2015.

Day by day the evidence grows

People in my world are giving this article a great deal of scrutiny for multiple reasons.

First, the AATIP is now the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force. Maybe the very words “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon” is an attempt to avoid the saying of “UFO.”

Day by day the evidence grows

Second, Congress directs this task force to release at least some of its findings to the public. When? Six months after the passage of the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2021. We know this because of a report from the Senate Select Intelligence Committee on this legislation. Don’t ask me how the New York Times obtained this report, or knew to look here. The Senate is considering this legislation. The House of Representatives hasn’t considered it yet. This provision, like many provisions, may not survive the legislative process.

Third, there are three paragraphs devoted to a recap of the 2017 AATIP article. The Department of Defense declared that the funding for the AATIP had lapsed in 2012. In the article, that statement was exposed as untrue. I take great curiosity that basic facts regarding this story are still in dispute. Particularly the role of Luis Elizondo, (pictured above) whom this article mentions. Elizondo and others claim that he ran the AATIP. The Pentagon claims Elizondo had “no assigned duties” in the Defense Intelligence Agency. Furthermore, he was not associated with the AATIP at all. Who should we believe? Elizondo was a source in the 2017 AATIP article. Therefore, I believe the New York Times believes him. Given that the report of the AATIP’s non-existence was a lie, maybe I should believe him. The case against Elizondo is made here. Day by day the evidence grows.

Fourth, there is a great deal of interest in the testimony of Dr. Eric Davis. In this article, Davis asserts regarding certain materials, “We couldn’t make it ourselves.” Davis said he gave a classified briefing to a Defense Department agency. This briefing was about retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.” These words have been rocketing around the internet over the past four days. Should I believe them? Do I have a good reason not to? I know very little about Eric Davis. I know he has a Ph.D in physics. You can find out more about him here, here and here. Day by day the evidence grows.

Day by day the evidence grows. The New Message from God teaches what is currently a minority viewpoint on the subject of extraterrestrials.

1) Intelligent extraterrestrial life exists
2) Extraterrestrials are intervening in human affairs today
3) This extraterrestrial intervention is a threat to human freedom

I realize some people consider this not only false, but impossible. But many things once thought to be impossible have turned out to be so. This is a passage from the revelation “The Great Challenge Awaiting Humanity.” It is one of the chapters of the recently released book “Preparing for the Greater Community.”

Forty Million People Changed Their Minds

Now that’s something you don’t see every day. Who said forty million people changed their minds? Well, I did, but I base it on a report by the Marist Poll.

Forty million people changed their minds

Some of you may not be familiar with the Marist Poll. It has been in existence since 1978. The Marist Poll is associated with Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York in the United States. It regularly measures public opinion on various subjects at the local, state and national level. The final Marist Poll of the 2016 US Presidential election was very close to the actual result. No one in my world complains about the Marist Poll. Therefore, I am taking their report at face value.

Forty million people changed their minds. Who were the forty million people? Forty million American adults, roughly. The Marist Poll conducted a survey in May of 2005. They conducted the same survey in February of 2018. So the forty million Americans changed their minds over a time period of a little less than 13 years. What did they change their mind about? The existence of intelligent life on other planets.

Forty million people changed their minds

In May of 2005, 52% of respondents answered Yes to the question “Do you think there is intelligent life on other planets?” In February of 2018, 68% of respondents answered Yes to that question. Suppose that these polls are representative samples of the United States. I have no good reason to believe that they are not. 16% of 240 million American adults works out to about forty million.

Exoplanet Discoveries. Forty million people changed their minds

What made the forty million American adults change their minds? It could be a number of things. I believe the explosion in the discovery of exoplanets, planets circling a star other than our sun, has something to do with it. The Kepler Space Telescope, launched in 2009, has been a remarkable scientific success in the time period between the two polls.

The New Message from God teaches that humanity is emerging into a greater community of intelligent life. This is the first paragraph from the revelation “Preparing for the Greater Community,” received by Marshall Vian Summers in April of 2011.

“Humanity is preparing for the Greater Community. It does not know this yet, of course, but that is its stage of evolution, and everyone is involved. The fact that humanity is unprepared for the realities of contact with life in the universe is very apparent, but at a more unconscious level, people are anticipating this. And that is why it emerges in your movies, in your books, in human imagination. There is a seed of truth, an element of truth here.”

Forty million people changed their minds. I consider this remarkable event to be part of humanity’s preparation for the Greater Community.
