Revision as of 01:57, 8 July 2019

The Great Waves of change are the converging crises facing humanity in the years and decades to come: climate change, resource depletion, economic, social and political upheaval.

Second only to humanity's emergence into the Greater Community, the Great Waves constitute the greatest threat humanity as a whole has ever faced. The dangers of the Great Waves of change are made worse by the Greater Darkness, which is the extraterrestrial Intervention exploiting humanity's weakness and fragmentation to gain control over humanity and Planet Earth.

"Great upheaval will now occur and is beginning to occur—-natural disasters born of humanity’s ignorance, overuse and misuse of the world."[1]

"To honestly look at the world is to realize that its mounting difficulties are exceeding human capacity and understanding. The Great Waves of change coming to the world exceed what individuals and institutions can fully comprehend and address." [2]

"There is no more time for foolishness and denial."[2]

The world will be unrecognizable in twenty years.” [3]

[4]

"Humanity is entering a time of great change and difficulty, a time when it will be facing the Great Waves of change—environmental degradation, resource depletion, violent weather, growing economic and political instability and the threat of war and conflict."[5]

"God’s New Message and Revelation for the world is being given to prepare you to become strong and stable, wise and compassionate, and capable of facing a world of ever-increasing instability and turmoil in the face of the Great Waves of change—environmental degradation, violent weather, resource depletion, increasing political and economic instability and the growing threat of war." [6]

Directives

"Do not worry that others are not responding. Do not concern yourself that humanity remains ignorant and indulgent and foolish in its conquests and its conflicts." [7]

"You are preparing for a world in decline."... "Become involved in your local community. Speak in your local city councils and governments."[8]

"The world will need you, and you must commit yourself to it. It is not a world of casual choices but a world of great demands, and the demands that it will make will show you your own greatness."[9]

"Do not look upon the Great Waves of Change only as a tragedy or as a great danger, but as a calling, as a requirement—a calling and a requirement that can restore and redeem you, that can call forth Knowledge within you and the great gifts that you have come to give, gifts that will be determined by the very circumstances that are emerging now." [10]

"This is a time now to stop blaming others, to end your ceaseless debates, to set aside your grievances and your hostilities, to face the fact that you are going to have to live life much more simply in the future. You will be living in a world of great resource restraints. You will not be able to get around very easily. Everything will be very expensive and there will have to be a great emphasis on producing food and other necessary things on a much more local scale. There will have to be tremendous restraint of anger, blame and hostility if people are to make this necessary transition. So many assumptions and beliefs will have to be set aside to face the reality of your situation." [5]

A Perfect Storm

"When Things Fall Apart" by Tyyne Andrews

"Warning is now being sounded around the world by many sources, but the severity of the situation is not being recognized by many." [11]

"Even the great wars of the past century will mean very little compared to what you will be facing now—the product of humanity’s misuse of the world." [12]

"The forces of the world—the geologic and biological forces—were set in motion at the beginning of time. They are moving on their own. The degree to which humanity has upset the Earth’s delicate balance will produce great events and is producing great events even at this moment." [13]

"To honestly look at the world is to realize that its mounting difficulties are exceeding human capacity and understanding. The Great Waves of change coming to the world exceed what individuals and institutions can fully comprehend and address." [14]

"The Great Waves of Change are converging upon the world. We have the great change of diminishing resources, the peak of petroleum and natural gas; we have climate change and violent weather, which will limit our ability to grow food. We have the displacement of large numbers of people who can no longer live where they live, who will have no where to go." [15]

Human Culpability

"The great storms of the world are coming, the Great Waves of change, the great upheaval. For humanity has sown the seeds of this for a very long time." [16]

"Humanity is at the threshold of great global change, world change on a scale never seen before, caused now by humanity’s misuse and overuse of the world, by human ignorance and human greed. It is a condition now that will affect the lives of every person. Though few are yet aware of it, it is a global emergency. You have changed the chemistry of the atmosphere, of the waters and the soils. And now the world is changing—changing so rapidly, so dangerously, changing now in ways that will affect you more than you realize." [17]

Imperatives

"The world you will be facing will require immense human cooperation, compassion and contribution, or it will be a battleground over who has the remaining resources of the world. Who can protect their wealth while other nations fail and collapse? The demands upon humanity will be so great that it will take a great compassion and wisdom to respond to this. But the peoples are too divided. The religions are too shattered. This group opposes that group in the name of their national sovereignty or the Will of God, and it is all set in motion to collapse into chaos." [14]

"For nations to survive environmental decline in this world and increasing political and economic upheaval and difficulty, you will have to cooperate with each other. Instead of fighting, you will have to find ways to provide enough food, water and energy for the people of the world. That will be the prevailing and dominating need of the future here on Earth." [14]

"People do not realize how much their life and circumstances are dependent upon the condition of the world and the movement of the world. Only in the poorer nations is this greater reality ever present. In affluent nations, the affluence insulates you from the greater realities of life to a certain extent for a period of time. But this affluence will diminish, and the greater realities are upon you. How humanity responds and prepares will make all the difference." [18]

"You are entering a new world—a world of environmental change, a world of violent weather, a world that is unpredictable, a world that will be unbalanced, with great political and economic difficulties. Nations will be shaken by revolution, and national economies will fail. It is the outcome of many forces at work that have been at work for some time. The wise can foresee this. For everyone else, it will be a great shock—the shock of the future. Do not look upon this as a great tragedy or something to avoid, neglect or deny, for this has your name upon it. You were sent into the world to serve the world under these conditions." [13]

"The past Revelations of the Creator cannot prepare you for the Great Waves of change. They cannot prepare you for your destiny in the Greater Community. They cannot prepare you for the great thresholds that are now upon you and will be upon you increasingly. You do not have answers in the face of these things. That is why the Revelation is being given, for humanity now needs to be advised and warned, blessed and given the preparation for a future that will be unlike the past."[1]

"You have everything you need to be successful. Your greatest adversaries are yourselves." [19]

Providence

"God will not save humanity by driving away the evil, by ending the problems that humanity has created or the problems it must face as a natural part of its evolution." [1]

Metaphors

"It is as if the bill has come due. Humanity has been spending and borrowing its natural inheritance for so long and now the bill has come due." [7]

"There is already fire burning in the world, and the embers for greater fires of conflict are being stoked, and the conditions are ripe for their emergence." [7]
