Enter the New Message through God

"The New Message is here, in part, to affirm the importance of all the world’s religions and to proclaim that they are all initiated by God. However far they may have wandered or deviated from the original intent, they are still important for humanity’s future and well-being."[1]

Directives

"Learn of the New Message from God. Realize it will affirm all that is true within your current traditions." [2]

"You must not come to the Revelation just to confirm your own beliefs or to associate it with what you have been taught before."[3]

God's Greater Plan

"It is a gift to all the world’s religions, for it is part of God’s Greater Plan. It will give to Islam what Islam needs. It will give to Christianity what Christianity needs. It will give to Buddhism what Buddhism needs now and to all the faith traditions—preparation for a new world experience, preparation for contact with life in the universe, a greater and clearer understanding of the One Spirituality of humanity that unites and binds you all to your Creator even while you appear to live in Separation in this world."[4]

"There is so much for you to learn. It cannot be communicated in a few words, but in a great series of teachings, which are part of God’s Revelation. Here a Christian must become a Christian with a Greater Community awareness. A Muslim becomes a Muslim with a Greater Community awareness. A Buddhist and a Jew gain a greater panorama of life to which their religious teachings must become relevant. If religion in the world is to educate and to enlighten, it must have this greater capacity and awareness. You cannot be fooling around in the face of the Greater Community or in the face of the Great Waves of change that are already occurring in the world. It is time to grow up." [5]

"The stories, the miracles, the admonitions from the past cannot really explain what God is doing here. For to understand what God is doing here, you must understand what God is doing in the entire universe. And for the first time in this world, in your history, this is now being revealed through God’s Revelation."[3]

The Calling

"There are many people in the world today who know they must prepare for something, who feel called to a greater participation, who have a sense that their life is more important than the mundane activities of the day. Some will not find their way in the religious traditions of the world because they are being prepared and called for something new in the world. They are more connected to the future than the past, and the future is calling them and pulling them forward." [6]

"That is why there is a New Message from God—not to compete with the world’s religions, not to overshadow them, but to unite them and to strengthen them so that their ancient wisdom can come to the fore and serve humanity in its changing circumstances at this great threshold in your evolution." [7]

"Many will find their purpose in the traditions of the world, for there is much wisdom and value there. However, many will not find their purpose there because their preparation has to do with the future specifically, and they must learn a new way. They must receive a new testament, and they must prepare for a new experience." [8]

"There are many people in the world today who know they must prepare for something, who feel called to a greater participation, who have a sense that their life is more important than the mundane activities of the day. Some will not find their way in the religious traditions of the world because they are being prepared and called for something new in the world. They are more connected to the future than the past, and the future is calling them and pulling them forward." [6]

The same God

"A New Revelation is being sent into the world for the protection and the advancement of humanity. If you are a practitioner of a religious tradition, do not be threatened by this. It is here to resonate with the essence and the core of your religious faith. It is a Message from the same God who has provided you your pathway in life. It is a New Testament. It is here to enliven your religion, to expand it and to make its realm of application greater. It is here to prepare you. It is providential." [9]

"The old religions, if they are held in contempt of one another, have really become obsolete and will become increasingly so in the future. Now you must see Jesus within the Greater Community and Muhammad and the Buddha and all the great saints and emissaries in a larger context, in a greater series of Revelations—each bringing humanity closer to world civilization and to greater cooperation and a deeper experience of the conscience that God has placed within you. In this sense, all religions are ecumenical. They are all meant to support one another instead of compete and denounce one another. [10]

"Something this pure, given, contravening much of the belief about God’s activity and God’s past Messages, will certainly arouse resistance and condemnation. This always happens at a time of Revelation. Heaven knows that this is the case."[3]
