About the Message 

In order for the humble, gentle, kind, peaceful and meek majority of people to inherit the earth and enjoy our birthright, an authentic, truly righteous judgment is needed to correct the political and religious leaders of the world who have brought us to this terrible state of inequity, conflict, division, and tribulation. 

Such a judgment was prophesied by prophets of many religions. But, while it is a divine intervention, it is not as many religious people expected because the fulfillment of real prophecies is not about the rule of one world religion or government, and it has nothing to do with a “holy war” or magic or anything supernatural. It is about truth, love, reason and justice overcoming false beliefs, hate, bigotry and injustice.

The judgment is not to issue commandments, but to counsel and guide humanity to the truth, explain religious prophecies and the nature of God as much as possible, show you things to come, and suggest how we may proceed forward toward a brighter future.

The judgment and the fulfillment of prophecy is about the liberation and empowerment of the people, so that we may finally become the family of religions and races that we are, and the family of governments that will be truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, at long last.

However, the promised judgment cannot be imposed upon the world. He who delivered the message does not try to play God or conquering hero or king, nor does he claim divinity or royalty. He is merely a fellow servant and messenger of God, and only human. He merely delivered the message so that it can be seen in a flash, like lightning, by people all over the world. And it is up to the people of the world to recognize and acknowledge it. 

So far not enough people have recognized it, and, as it was foreseen and prophesied, the messenger is rejected by his generation. But that’s not surprising. In fact, it was prophesied and predicted, because neither the messenger nor the judgment he delivered are what people expected. 

Meanwhile, while the messenger is rejected, he and most people in the world suffer many terrible things, the wealthiest few who hold all the wealth and power live luxuriously and palatially, believing that is the natural order of things. In fact, some of the richest few mistakenly believe that they are blessed by God, and that the poor masses are poor because they deserve to be poor.

Consequently, a very wealthy few rule the world and aristocracy, oligarchy and monarchy (including the presidential form of monarchy) is perpetuated as we are steadily prevented from advancing and even pushed backward regarding our social and financial status, as the wealthiest few become more and more powerful and get richer and richer at the expense of everyone else.

That’s why the judgment cannot be lukewarm. It must be strong, firm and righteous, so that it will expose and denounce greedy, bigoted hypocrites who have fought for and gained a grossly unfair and disproportionate amount of personal power, wealth and domain in the world, even as the majority have become increasingly worse off and in jeopardy. 

The judgment will enable the people to put an end to the rule of money. It will render theocracy, oligarchy, aristocracy and all forms of monarchy obsolete, and instead establish actual liberty, democracy, justice, peace and freedom for all humanity. 

The judgment helps us understand that only God the eternal, omnipresent Great Spirit-Parent reigns Sovereign, above all human beings. And it explains that the fulfillment of prophecy is to bring about a reformation of our religions and our governments so that they will use the common wealth for the common good, promote the general welfare, and ensure domestic tranquility, pluralism and freedom of religions, equal rights and opportunities, and justice for all the people.

That is what this comprehensive message and judgment is all about, and it is designed not to condemn, but to educate; not to punish, but to correct; and not to destroy, but to save.

Now, even though the message cites Judeo-Christian scriptural evidence because Christianity is the largest religion in the world and the most powerful, the message is universal in scope and appropriate for all religions. However, because the messenger has declared his prophetic prerogative and mission, religious people dismiss and label his work as heretical, others dismiss it as either naive or wrong, and the rich dismiss it as sour grapes. And this too was expected, and prophesied.

While the messenger is rejected, spiritually blind leaders lead their blind flocks astray, and we are in this state of tribulation because the greatest refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism, and the greatest refuge of a hypocrite is religiosity. And the proud and militant who have claimed that their religion or nation or race or culture is superior to all others, or that their wealth entitles them to rule, are woefully wrong.

The messenger’s mission to deliver his work before him may now be fulfilled, and when enough people get the message he must give up his self-important, judgmental role because he is painfully aware that as he has judged so he has been judged. And even though his work has earned him the right for the message to be read and heard by the nations, he may have to die of natural causes before the message can be widely accepted and recognized for what it is. God only knows.

Whatever the case, please understand that it is the truth, and nothing but the truth, that shall set us free, and the messenger was sent to provide true counsel and liberate and empower you all.

Cyrus II, Founder of the Ancient Persian Empire

The biblical prophet Isaiah called Cyrus an "anointed one," which means Mashiach (Messiah) in Hebrew, which means one who is called, anointed and chosen by God. 

Modern scholars have concluded that Isaiah 45:1-5 was speaking of the founder of the ancient Persian Empire, Cyrus II, who is still highly regarded today by many people in Iran (Persia) because Cyrus II established religious freedom and human rights in his vast domain, which ultimately included much of the Mid-East and what we now call Israel, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 

It is noteworthy that a Hebrew prophet and writer would call a Persian leader a messiah, and add that Cyrus did not know God and yet was anointed and chosen by God. 

It is also interesting that modern scholars and researchers have concluded that the book of Isaiah had two authors, one earlier and one later during the time of Cyrus. And, it is interesting that the book of Isaiah is perhaps one of the most political but fair of the Hebrew prophetic books, without being as ethnocentric or nationalistic, because the author recognized a great man, whatever his race or culture or place of birth.

Of course, the book of Isaiah speaks of several leaders, including Cyrus, and Christians believe it also speaks of Jesus of Nazareth, even though that is not true. (As the article on Isaiah Chapter 53 explains, the book of Isaiah speaks mainly of the one who fulfills the ultimate prophecies of issuing judgment which will ultimately establish peace and enable the people of all nations to forsake the ways of war and turn their “swords into plowshares.” And that one is the modern son of man, the anointed messiah that the rest of the book of Isaiah is about — the one that both Isaiah and Jesus said would first be rejected by his generation and suffer many things before finally getting his message across.) 

Nevertheless, Cyrus II is a significant figure in the history of the world not merely because his empire included the countries we know as Israel, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but because he is important in the history of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

In 539 B.C., Cyrus II went to Babylon (the ancient city which was about 50 miles south of modern Baghdad in Iraq). And some of the people in Babylon at that time were Jews who had been taken captive some 50 years earlier when the army of the Babylonian Empire had marched through the Middle East, conquering nations and capturing people to take them to be slaves back in Babylon.

Cyrus liberated those exiles, captives and slaves and allowed them to return to their homelands, to rebuild their communities and freely practice their religious customs and traditions.

Then Cyrus began to go into India. But he did not invade and conquer India because he learned of a Hindu by the name of Siddartha Gautama, who had become known the Buddha. And the Buddha taught the way of peace, harmony, and oneness of humanity and the universe. 

Modern progressive biblical scholars have concluded that it was at about the same time that Judaism became an official religion and the Torah was compiled as the Law of the Jews.

With the benefit of modern archaeology, research and scholarship, we can see how the books of the Torah – the first five books of the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh – were probably written or compiled in Babylon when Jews were there in exile. After all, they would have kept the stories of Moses, Abraham, David, Solomon, Daniel and others alive, determined to remember and maintain who they were, what they believed, and why they believed it. 

However, without the wisdom, beneficence and tolerance of Cyrus II, we might never have had the Hebrew Bible (“Old Testament”) today. The biblical history of the Jews may not have been preserved as it has been, and we may not have known their ancient prophecies. 

We wouldn’t have had the biblical book of Daniel, for example, which is in part about Daniel’s counsel to the king of ancient Babylon, King Nebuchednezzar. Also, in the second chapter of Daniel he describes future empires, the second of which would be the Persian Empire of Cyrus, then the Greek Empire, then the Roman Empire, which would be “broken into many pieces” (per Daniel 2:32-35) — pieces which would eventually include European empires and finally the United States of America (as is explained in the article on The Fall of Babylon). 

In other words, it is probably due to Cyrus II's patronage and establishment of freedom of religion that the Jewish Hebrew texts survived and developed into what Jews know as the Torah and Tanakh, Greeks know as the Septuagint, and Christians and Muslims know as the “Old Testament” of the Christian Bible.


A Time of Relative Spiritual Awakening

Around the same time that Cyrus II ruled the Persian Empire, the Avatar Zoroaster founded Zoroastrianism, some of whose adherents were called Magi (like the Magi that centuries later would visit the manger where the baby Jesus of Nazareth was born, having "read" the signs in the night sky and knowing that the Avatar for a new [and now passing] age had been born). 

Zoroaster’s teachings were honored by people all over the Mid-East. Elements of Zoroastrian philosophy entered the West through their influence on Judaism and Middle Platonism and have been identified as one of the key early events in the development of philosophy. Some of the classic Greek philosophers, particularly Heraclitus, were inspired by Zoroaster's thinking. (And later so was Jesus of Nazareth.)  

Zoroaster believed in God as Ahura Mazda (which means Divine Light and Wisdom) and while he recognized that Mankind has Free Will to choose good or evil thoughts and ways, he taught how and why people should choose constructive, productive thoughts, words and deeds.

Near the same time, the Buddha Gautama taught the way of peace, harmony, and oneness of humanity and the universe. Around the same time in China, Confucius promoted social harmony through the ethical action of each and every individual. And the great sage Lao Tzu taught a very similar message in The Book of Tao. 

In other words, the spirit of constructive, harmonic consciousness was “in the air.” And all those things no doubt enabled Cyrus II to rule unchallenged, and in his empire communication and transportation advanced greatly. What’s known as “The Silk Road” from China ran through Afghanistan and through the rest of the Persian Empire, and the speed of travel, transport and news increased. Even the ancient Greek historian Herodotus praised the Persian Empire’s roads. 

The point, though, is that Cyrus II’s empire embraced peoples of many different religions and beliefs, who were free to practice their religious traditions and ceremonies. And even though Cyrus was a warrior king and conqueror, he was a relatively understanding, compassionate and beneficent one, and, once established, his empire was relatively peaceful because he respected the different ways of different peoples. He lived and let people live.

If you learn the history of the world, you see that the character of empires usually reflects the character of emperors, as well as the character of those who empower and support emperors, and while there have been some good ones, most have been not so much. Most have been self-centered, ethnocentric, and even brutal and uncaring in their quest for power, wealth and domain. 

The same has been true for many kings, queens and other heads of state in human history, and it still is true. But then, that’s another story that has been covered in several other articles on and linked to this site, and this article is but a small part of a comprehensive message designed to show you how and why there will be peace and harmony in the world when enough people learn the lessons of history and prophecies.
