A Prophetic Jeffersonian Vision of the Future

Why do the rich keep getting richer while the poor get poorer, when a great servant of God like Jesus of Nazareth said the poor are blessed and the souls of the rich are in jeopardy? And why do the proud and militant fight for power and rule the world, when he said the humble and meek shall inherit the earth?
Furthermore, why is our world ruled by those driven by greed and self-interest who think they are entitled to rule because of their wealth, religion, race, or nationality?
Deep in our minds, hearts and souls we know the answers. We know what should be, and we also know why things have never been the way they should be, because hypocritical people serve Mammon and themselves while claiming and pretending to serve God and Country.
Some good men tried to change that in 1776. They signed a Declaration of Independence which declared that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with unalienable Rights to be secured by government by the people. And it is clear that John Adams helped Thomas Jefferson write that Declaration and they were like-minded at the time, because privately Adams wrote the following:
“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men. Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require.” -- John Adams, 1776
Of course, by 1800 the Founders were split as partisan political parties were formed. The wealthiest few who were driven by self-interest sought to perpetuate the aristocratic British political economic system wherein money was power, while those holding progressive democratic views argued against that. In fact, Thomas Jefferson argued that the real power ought to be in education and knowledge. He even argued for public education through college and university, so that all the people could live up to their full potential on a level playing field.
In arguing against those who thought their wealth entitled them to rule, Jefferson tried to deal with the same kind of hypocrisy that plagues the world today. That was even demonstrated in his arguments against "religious" Theocrats who felt that their religion entitled them to rule. He made it very clear why the First Amendment of the Constitution was written to build a "wall of separation between church and state," which was clearly needed to prevent Theocracy and ensure Democracy, but the Theocrats ignored him and some even slandered him.
That is why Jefferson even said that theocratic clergy “have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man," and Jefferson swore “upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
Unfortunately, sanctimonious Theocrats and greedy Plutocrats are relentless, and they found a way to rule anyway after Jefferson died. Granted, they encountered resistance and temporary defeat between 1933 and 1969 due to the success of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. However, since then and especially since 1982 they have succeeded completely.
That is why today in 2016 the wealthiest few rule totally and the great majority of us suffer the consequences, because Jeffersonian principles, which Abraham Lincoln said are "the axioms of a free society," have been utterly ignored by the Theocrats and Plutocrats who control government.
That’s the reality.
But, what if the humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and meek majority of people in the world could inherit the earth?
What if the people of the world could be liberated, empowered and enabled to establish governments that will actually be of the people, by the people, and for the people. And what if such governments would actually serve the people, promote the general welfare, and use the common wealth for the common good?
The Spirit of truth indicates that will happen, and the author of this message just happens to serve the Spirit of truth, which comes not to condemn, but to educate; not to punish, but to correct; and not to destroy, but to save.
The author, a called and chosen servant-messenger of God, received the “apokalupsis eschaton,” which literally means "revelation at the end of the age (or aeon)." That is what Jesus of Nazareth foresaw and foretold, as did preceding prophets. But he is not what anyone expected, because their expectations of a messianic figure are based on symbolic prophecies and myths.
The truth is that there's nothing magical about him, and he's not a holy man. In fact, he was stricken and afflicted because of his willfulness and covetousness, but his redeeming qualities are recognized (Isaiah 57:17-18). As Isaiah foresaw, he is “hidden” (49:2) and does not exalt himself (42:2), but he sends his work before him (40:10, 62:11) even though he is rejected by his generation (Isaiah 49:1-7, Luke 17:20-25). Thoroughly corrected by God, he seeks only to enable the people of the world to be liberated and empowered, and he does not seek personal power or position, understanding that it is the message, not the messenger, that is important.
"Be wise and consider the ways of the ants, which having no guide, overseer or ruler, provide food in the summer and gather in the harvest." -- Proverbs 6:6-8
"As for the best leaders, the people do not notice them. When the best leader's work is accomplished, the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'" -- Lao Tzu, The Book of Tao
Nevertheless, even though he stays behind the scenes to liberate and empower you, people all over the world may see and hear him through visual and audio electronic communication and transmission, which long ago Jesus said would be like "lightning."
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.
