This is the tenth post in a series of posts on the revelation “The Great Turning Point for Humanity.” This revelation is a small part of the New Message from God. The first post is here. The previous post is here.

What have we seen so far? Humanity’s enemies consider humanity to be weak, divided and pathetic. And yet, it is not impossible for humanity to unite and become a strong race. But it requires people to recognize the gravity of the situation.

One nation won’t succeed if others fail

The following is the 60th paragraph of this teaching. I will add my experience of each paragraph in brackets.

You stand at the next decade—a decade of tumultuous change, a decade of evolution, evolutionary change, not just personal change, not just political change—evolutionary change. [It will] change the outcome for everyone. Succeed or fail, [this is a] pivotal time in human history, perhaps the most ever.

[This revelation was received on December 31, 2019, the eve of a new decade. The words in brackets have been added by Marshall Vian Summers for clarification. While many people recognize the changes in the world, not many people recognize the evolutionary change. Can you think of the importance of your presence in the world?]

One nation will not succeed if other nations fail. You will have to unite in some kind of functional form to begin to tackle the great problems that you are facing now. Fail to do this, and the hour will become too late and calamity will grow.

[China won’t succeed if America fails. America won’t succeed if India fails. Your nation won’t succeed if their nation fails. Where will the refugees go when a nation fails? Who will provide for them?]

We will not tell you what this will look like because you do not yet have the strength to hear it. But what We offer you is the way out of this greater dilemma, not because someone is going to come and rescue you, not because some foreign power is going to come and rescue you—the foreign power is your problem, not your solution—not because some great saint or sage is going to come and lead humanity out of its great predicament. It is a Calling for people all around the world to respond.

[This teaching has already rebuked those who look to extraterrestrials for humanity’s deliverance. There are people who sincerely believe in the coming of some extraordinary figure. The Savior, the Maitreya, The Imam. But what if they don’t come? What then?American band The Eagles wrote in the song “The Last Resort,”

Who will provide the grand design?
What is yours and what is mine?
‘Cause there is no more new frontier
We have got to make it here.

Humanity needs a lot of everyday people to respond and prepare. The word Calling has been capitalized by Marshall Vian Summers.]

Be you of any religion, any nation, any culture, any station in life, be you man or woman, child or adolescent, this is a Calling to go far and wide. Who will take it far and wide? Who will honor the Messenger who has been sent into the world from the Angelic Assembly to bring it here at this great pivotal turning point?

[Do I dare to say “I will?” This message is a small part of the New Message from God. There is a New Message from God in the world. It has come from the Creator of all life. Marshall Vian Summers is its Messenger. This blog post is part of my effort to take this Calling far and wide.]

This is a confrontation with reality We are giving you here today. Argue with it. Deny it. Pretend it is not so, and you will fail.

[“You” means “humanity.” “fail” means “become extinct or enslaved and exploited by foreign powers.”]

So who amongst you will succeed? Who amongst you will respond? Who amongst you will take a path of preparation not of your own making to face a world beyond your comprehension and beyond what you are used to?

[Do I dare to say “I will?” The path of preparation they offer is Steps to Knowledge. I freely admit that I wasn’t thinking of a moment like this when I started practicing Steps to Knowledge. But anyone who practices Steps to Knowledge will be led into a life of necessity and away from a life of casual choices.]

This next decade will be very decisive. It will not be completely decisive, but it will be very decisive. If you continue in your current ways, with little change in direction, then the consequences upon the peoples of this world will be far greater than they are today, so great that even nations will not be able to handle the difficulties of their own populations, even in the rich countries.

[ One nation won’t succeed if others fail. Not enough people are responding and preparing. Will you?]

How Shall I Pray For A Student Of Knowledge?

How shall I pray for a student of Knowledge?

As I studied Steps to Knowledge, the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God, it first seemed like a relatively solitary practice. There were some people I would correspond with, but the steps were mostly speaking to my life story.

How shall I pray for a student of Knowledge?

As I progressed, the importance of my interactions with other students became clearer. Steps spoke of how every accomplishment is a group effort. The mission I came to the world to accomplish requires the development of others. A hope began to emerge for the success of my fellow students.

How shall I pray for a student of Knowledge? Step 121, “Today I am free to give,” and Step 122, “I give without loss today,” encouraged me to give strength of character and strength of faculty of mind. Something like this emerged:

“I give my fellow students contentment with following the Steps as given. I give them building and balancing the four pillars of their lives [relationships, work, health and spirituality]. I give them trust in their deepest inclinations.

I didn’t notice this the first time I studied Steps to Knowledge, but in the second time through, I noticed this paragraph of Step 342, “I am a student of Knowledge today,” as a prayer for students of Knowledge. It seems to work to pray it for one’s self, or to pray it for someone else.

Today you are a student of Knowledge. You are following your preparation step by step. You are learning to be unburdened of your own judgment and anxiety. You are learning to be confirmed by the presence of Knowledge within you and by the presence of love within your life. You are learning to honor yourself and learning to appreciate your world. You are learning to recognize your responsibility and learning to recognize the world’s need for this responsibility to be carried forth. You are learning to be still within and meaningfully engaged without. You are learning to receive. You are learning to give. You are learning to recognize that your life is being redeemed.

How shall I pray for a student of Knowledge? This is my prayer for you.
