We Need Your Determination And Adaptability

We need your determination and adaptability

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

What have we seen so far? Humanity is on the brink of great change. We stand on the threshold of space. We face intervention from space. We face the consequences of our resource consumption and environmental destruction. But God has spoken again to prepare humanity for these great challenges.

We need your determination and adaptability

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

This next decade will be a great turning point for humanity, as this great environmental change begins to alter the face of the world, as humanity faces a growing presence in the world from those beyond who would seek to use this world for their own purposes. They are not here to destroy you but to use you, seeing you as part of the resource of the world.

[More detail will be given about the forthcoming great environmental change. The word “Intervention” mentioned earlier could be thought of as “a growing presence…for their own purposes.” There are those who consider technically advanced races to be spiritually advanced as well. But how do they know this? I consider the word “use” to mean “enslave and exploit,” in the same way we treat agricultural animals.]

Feeling this great turning point, some people will think it is the end—it is the end of humanity, it is the end of time, or it is the end of human civilization. And some people think it is a glorious beginning, a great new age for humanity of enlightenment and unity, of spirituality.

[It could be the end of humanity. It might be the end of human freedom. Will humanity respond to the warnings and prepare? Compared to all of time, human existence is a blink. And yet, there are those who ascribe cosmic consequences to human events. The people who think the great turning point is a glorious beginning are going to experience a lot of trouble.]

But who can face the reality with the courage and the power of Knowledge that God has placed within each person? Yet this Knowledge is unknown in the world, except by a few.

[We need you to find the deeper spiritual intelligence that God has placed within you. We call it Knowledge. When it is followed, disaster is averted. We have a path of practice to reach it called Steps to Knowledge. It has been in the world since 1989. It is true that Knowledge is unknown in the world, except by a few. This is an effort to remedy that.]

So they [people] fail to respond. They fail to prepare. They fail to recognize the growing signs of the world. They remain either oppressed in their nations where there is poverty or religious or political oppression, or they remain subsumed in their own personal preoccupations and desires and difficulties, heedless, unaware that their lives are about to change beyond their reckoning.

[I can imagine some people reading this and thinking, “It won’t be as bad for my nation as it will be for that other nation.” But any nation that doesn’t respond and prepare will face great difficulty. Nature is merciless to the unprepared.]

There are those who feel this great change, but are too afraid to face it. So they turn away, or they try to give it meaning and understanding, trying to incorporate it into their desires and their understanding of the world, when in fact the great change is something far beyond their capabilities in this regard.

[Why are they too afraid to face it? Because they identify with their body and mind, their individuality, instead of Knowledge. They ask “What can one person do?” But a person of Knowledge can do something.]

Many people pray for peace and equanimity at this time. Some even seek for what they call enlightenment, but this is not preparation for what is coming. What is coming is a great challenge, an ordeal, a difficult road ahead.

[We don’t need your enlightenment. We need your determination and adaptability. Your determination to rise to the occasion. Humanity needs your strong contribution to get through the ordeal.]

A God Who Speaks Again At The Right Time

A god who speaks again at the right time
Painting of the prophet Jeremiah by Michaelangelo

The writings of the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah (probably after 650 – c. 570 BC) appear in both the Jewish and Christian scriptures. His prophecies were often directed towards particular people. But there is a particular prophecy in Jeremiah 31 addressed to the people of Israel and the people of Judah.

“The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
    “when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
    and with the people of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant
    I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
    to lead them out of Egypt,
because they broke my covenant,
    though I was a husband to them,]
declares the Lord.
“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
    after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
    and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.
No longer will they teach their neighbor,
    or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
    from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.
“For I will forgive their wickedness
    and will remember their sins no more.”
(Jeremiah 31:31-34, New International Version)

A God who speaks again at the right time

No declaration was made as to when this would happen, only that it would happen. But hundreds of years later, the author of the letter to the Hebrews declared that this very thing had happened. How had this happened? In the teachings and demonstrations of Jesus. The author describes this further in Hebrews 8.

The author of the letter to the Hebrews forthrightly declared that God had spoken again in the life and work of Jesus:

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. (Hebrews 1:1-2, New International Version)

But to me, the author is saying even more. The author is saying that in the prophesy of Jeremiah, God is promising to speak again at the right time. Furthermore, in the person and work of Jesus, God is fulfilling the promises made in Jeremiah 31. God is demonstrating speaking again at the right time. The God of the Bible is a god who speaks again at the right time.

The revelation “The Great Turning Point for Humanity” declares:

At this great turning point, Heaven has sent a New Revelation into the world, a Revelation unlike anything that has been given to the world since the days of Muhammad. For these Revelations are only given at great turning points, representing a response to a great need and a great opportunity to uplift humanity, to prepare it for its next great stage of development.

We face our greatest challenge now. But God has spoken again. Because God is a god who speaks again at the right time.

We Face Our Greatest Challenge Now

We face our greatest challenge now
“Under the Wave off Kanegawa by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)

Something happened recently that is not well-known outside of the community of the New Message from God. On the last day of the previous decade, Marshall Vian Summers received a revelation, “The Great Turning Point for Humanity.” It is the most recent revelation of the New Message from God. Marshall shares his experience of receiving this revelation here [registration required]. The Society shared this revelation with the New Message community in January of 2020, and January of 2021.

This revelation is the first to be received on the eve of a new decade. This teaching mentions this decade on multiple occasions. I consider this to be relatively rare. I therefore consider this to be a particularly important teaching. I therefore plan to write a series of blog posts about this teaching. In each blog post, I will share a few of the paragraphs of the revelation, along with my experience of each paragraph. I will put my experience of each paragraph in brackets.

We face our greatest challenge now

At this great turning point, you stand at the threshold of great change in the world, greater than you yet realize, a greater change than has happened at any time in human history.

[Students of the New Message have been told this on many occasions, but to me, it is is as if we need to hear it yet again.]

For you stand at the threshold of a universe full of intelligent life. An Intervention from this universe has begun. And you face a new world reality, for humanity has changed the world in so many ways, and now it is changing on its own, in ways that you cannot yet control or predict.

[The book Life in the Universe speaks of this. The purpose of the Intervention is to gain control over Earth’s resources (including humanity). The new world reality is a reality of declining resources, affected climate, and environmental degradation.”]

At this great turning point, Heaven has sent a New Revelation into the world, a Revelation unlike anything that has been given to the world since the days of Muhammad. For these Revelations are only given at great turning points, representing a response to a great need and a great opportunity to uplift humanity, to prepare it for its next great stage of development.

[This New Revelation is the New Message from God. The New Message considers Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed as Messengers of the past. I make no claim to know how the days of these messengers were great turning points. But humanity faces a great turning point now.]

Those who are sensitive, those who are looking, those who are listening can feel the building of this power, this movement of life, this great change. And perhaps they have also been stirred, for God has been stirring people to prepare for these times, the great times of Revelation.

[We face our greatest challenge now. Is humanity’s pattern of resource consumption and environmental destruction sustainable? If not, when will humanity hit the wall? Many people have prayed for God to help a divided humanity.]

For why would God speak again to the world unless there was a great need—so great that the previous Revelations could not really address it completely or adequately, so great that God must speak again, despite all the denial and belief that this could happen? But only God knows when God will speak, and no one has the authority to proclaim this cannot be.

[Many Christians might think of Hebrews 1:1-2 (NIV) “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.” Many Muslims might think of Surah 33:40 (Yusuf Ali translation) “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.” But I dare to declare that God has spoken again.]

I have reached a stopping point. I will write more soon. But already it has been declared that God has spoken again, because our world is in great need. We face our greatest challenge now.
