Site 2: A Creative Vision of the Future Through the Lens of History, Universal Prophecies, and Reason
In order for the humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and meek majority of human beings to inherit the earth, a righteous judgment must intercede on their behalf, and it must be the promised judgment and according to prophetic prerogative and divine mandate.To fulfill both the Real American Dream and world prophecies, the judgment should be Jeffersonian while at the same time be inspired by the universal Spirit of truth in order to properly judge the erroneous religious, political, judicial and industrial leaders of the world. For they live in the lap of absurdly opulent luxury serving "Mammon" while we, the vast majority of the people, suffer the consequences of their self-importance, greed, corruption, and vain folly.
A true and correct judgment must serve the Spirit of truth by promoting real freedom of religion, with freedom from Theocracy and theocratic imposition. It must also promote the general welfare, equal rights and opportunities, peace, freedom, civil liberties, and justice for all the people. Moreover, to both liberate and empower the people, the correct judgment must show the way for the people to take the ultimate peaceful political action to liberate and empower our selves and establish governments that will actually be of, by and for the people and use the common wealth for the common good, in accordance with Divine Providence.
Our predicament and this tribulation has increased as we have approached the end of the age, and it was foreseen and foretold, or prophesied.
However, it was also foreseen and foretold that in order for the humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and “meek” majority of people to inherit the earth and enjoy the birthright with which we've been endowed by our Creator, an authentic, truly righteous judgment would be needed to set things straight.
That is because proper, honest judgment is needed to correct the political and religious leaders of the world who have brought us to this terrible state of inequity and injustice -- because it was not God who caused this tribulation. It was the vain folly of Man.
However, even though a judgment and a divine intervention and intercession was prophesied, it is not as most religious people expected. For while they want a conquering hero and king, the fulfillment of real prophecies is not about the rule of one man, nor is it about one world religion or one world government. Moreover, it has nothing to do with a so-called “holy war” or magic, or anything supernatural.
The fulfillment of prophecy is about truth, love, reason and justice overcoming false beliefs, hate, bigotry and injustice. And it is about the pen finally proving mightier than the sword.
Fulfilling prophecy, the author of this message is a man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief. He is from your midst, and of your brethren. And he is not a holy man. In fact, he is a contrite son of man who is painfully aware of his failings and mistakes, and realizes his limitations, impotence and helplessness to deal with the elements that are causing such horrific suffering, death, and destruction in our world.
He knows that all he can do is tell the truth and deliver this promised judgment, and trust in God that as soon as enough people get the message it will provide the intervention and intercession that was promised. For it is the message that is important, not the messenger, and it is the truth, and nothing but the truth, that will set us free.
The judgment, intervention and intercession is not to issue commandments. It cannot be imposed, and it is designed not to condemn but to educate; not to punish but to correct; and not to destroy but to save. It is merely to counsel and guide humanity to the truth, explain religious prophecies and the nature of God as much as possible, plead for the poor, the elderly and the disadvantaged, celebrate our diversity, show you things to come, and suggest how we may proceed forward toward a brighter future together.
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 and nations with governments that will be truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, at long last.
The promised judgment helps us understand that only God the eternal, omnipresent Great Spirit-Parent reigns Sovereign, above all human beings (including he who delivers the message). 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 the message cites Judeo-Christian scriptural evidence merely because Christianity is the largest religion in the world and the most powerful, but the message is universal in scope and appropriate for all religions.
The messenger began delivering the message in 1984, but, as was prophesied, he is rejected by his generation. Meanwhile, spiritually blind leaders still lead their blind flocks astray because the greatest refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism and the greatest refuge of a hypocrite is religiosity, and the proud and militant have claimed that their religion or nation or race or culture is superior to all others, or that their wealth entitles them to rule. But, they are woefully wrong.
Know this, 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.
The Real American Dream is not about the individual achieving personal fame and fortune. That is the dream of some individuals. But the Real American Dream is much greater.
It is about living in a country with government that understands that all people are created equal and are endowed by the Creator with unalienable human rights -- a government that promotes the general welfare and ensures domestic tranquility by establishing justice for all people, not just a wealthy few.
That is why the work of the modern son of man is a twofold, spiritual, Jeffersonian work -- a message in two parts. One, of course, is the written message edited and republished on these Web sites, and the other is an album of original songs titled The Dream Will Come True, written, performed and recorded solely by the 72 year old singer-songwriter and author.
"Son of man, my people hear your words, but they do not listen. With their mouths they express love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings songs with a pleasant voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice. When all this comes true—and it surely will—then they will know that a prophet has been among them." – Ezekiel 33:31-33
This will come to pass, because even though those words may have been about the prophet Ezekiel in his time, they are also about the modern son of man. And there are many other scriptural precedents the modern son of man follows in singing new songs.
"Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth." – David's Psalm 33:3-4
"You shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One." (Isaiah 30:29)
“Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.” -- Isaiah 42:10
Of course, many servants of God have sung new songs, but it doesn't matter to whom those quotes refer. What matters is that the son of man sings new songs, both to follow precedents and to advance human understanding, like many who have been called son of man.
But, this son of man is like no other. His mission is unique, and modern.
Many people have become aware of his work since he was able to publish it in his first book and on the Internet in January 2002. But, as was prophesied, he is rejected by his generation because he dares to assert his prophetic prerogative. Consequently, he is dismissed as just another religious nut with a messianic complex.
Most people don't bother to learn that he is not like the false prophets and false shepherds who divide you and cause conflict. He doesn't pretend to be "holy" or great. In fact, he thoroughly confesses his faults, errors, weaknesses and fallibility, and explains exactly why he is not a king nor savior. He tells the real truth, which is that only our Great Spirit-Parent, the eternal, infinite, omnipresent Lord Our God is the Holy One and Savior. And there is no other.
The third verse of one of his songs speaks to the fact that he is rejected by his generation, even by his own family. It states:
"My accusers they say I have failed them. They say I have feet of clay. But I could not live my life to please only them. I have my own dues to pay." -- From The Dream Will Come True
He was a singer long before he was a writer, but he didn't become a song-writer until 1978, and his songs were written between 1978 and 1982. But then he shelved the songs because he saw where America was headed and knew few people would listen, so he thought he should share his prophetic point of view in writing first. But, according to the prophecies of Isaiah and Jesus, he has been rejected by his generation.
Finally, in 2009, he recorded ten of his songs while he still could, after 26 years of not singing or playing an instrument, growing short of breath and more disabled, and fearing he would soon be physically unable to sing or play any more.
He had to settle for "first take" performances even though he was not happy with them. He sang all vocal parts and plays all the instruments except drums --which were recorded from an electric piano. He hopes that his health and physical ability will improve enough so that he may re-record all his songs to his satisfaction.
He settled for these in 2009, after first takes, because he was physically unable to continue. He still hopes to improve them, but he was stricken and afflicted and confined to a wheelchair since 1977 and suffers from heart disease, worsening congestive heart failure, and many other diseases including terrible bursitis and arthritis in his shoulders and arthritis in his thumbs, wrists and fingers due to 35 years of pushing his wheelchair and having to move himself around by hand.
He has been healed and saved many times so far, with eight surgeries (including septuple heart bypass surgery), and who knows, he could be saved and healed again, and a miracle could happen. He could manage to re-record the songs with performances he would be proud of, even though at this point he still fears he will die a failure.
To read lyrics and listen to his recorded songs, click here. And here are some examples that have been posted on YouTube, the first of which is We Can Change Our World. It recognizes that while we desperately need a reformation of government and religion, we also need to reform our selves, and be part of the change we want to see in the world.
He knows, or ultimately has to admit (to himself and to you), who and what he is, a genuine witness of God and the servant chosen by God to deliver the message of promised judgment that will finally establish the New Covenant.
The fact that the modern son of man sings his songs and people hear them but ignore the message is consistent with what the prophet Isaiah wrote about the servant of God being rejected for so long that he feels his work has all been in vain and for naught. Moreover, it is also consistent with the prophecy of Jesus of Nazareth, who said the son of man to come would "first be rejected by his generation."
"The days will come when people will want to see one of the days of the son of man, and they shall not see it. So they will look here and there, but do not follow them. For as the lightning lightens all parts under heaven, so shall also the [work of the] son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected by his generation." -- Jesus of Nazareth, according to Luke 17:20-25
Jesus was not speaking of himself in that instance, because he was accepted by multitudes of Jews, Greeks and others in his generation, and he suffered not first or beforehand, but only on the last day of his life, as he was completing his mission. But the modern son of man was actually stricken and afflicted as Isaiah 53:4 said he would be, which is why he has first suffered many things, as Jesus said he would.
Jesus was speaking of the next son of man whose message (work) is sent before him (as Isaiah 62:11 prophesied) and can be seen in a flash, like lightning, all over the world (over the Internet) as Jesus somehow knew.
As is explained in the articles that make up the message, the book of Isaiah is, for the most part, about the modern son of man, and not about Jesus of Nazareth, who was the Christ-Avatar for the passing age.
As both Isaiah and Jesus foretold, at first the modern son of man is not recognized as a servant of God. He would first be rejected by his generation and suffer many things. Because his message is rejected for so long, his faith will waver and he will sometimes fear that all his work has been in vain and for nought. And it will be as if he is hidden in the shadow of God’s hand. (According to Isaiah 42:1-2, Isaiah 49:2-5, Luke 17:24-25, Isaiah 49:4; Isaiah 51:16, Isaiah 53:4, Isaiah 57:15-21, Isaiah 62:11-12)
After long being rejected by his generation, the scribe-messenger feels like: "I have labored in vain; I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain. And yet surely my work is with my God." (Isaiah 49:4)
When you learn the real story of the modern son of man, it becomes clear what is actually foretold in the Bible. For the part about "working in vain and for nought" (Isaiah 49:4) was not really about Jacob and God’s "servant Israel." The son of man symbolically represents Jacob, and Israel. That becomes more clear when you consider Isaiah 49:2-5 in context, where the "speaker," the servant of God, states:
"(God) has made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand has he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver has he hid me; And said unto me, You are my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified. Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God. And now, says the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength." (Isaiah 49:2-5)
He serves in the name of Israel and Jacob, and in the new name of the Christ according to Isaiah 62:2 and Revelation 2:17 and 3:12. Accordingly he serves in the name of Jehoshuah, Son of Nun. (In scriptures, Nun was the minister to Moses and the father of Joshua. In Hebrew, Nun is the 13th letter of the alphabet, symbolized by the fish. It also means fish in Aramaic, Phoenician and Arabic. And, in mythology, Nun is the ethereal waters or ocean from which all life has come.)
Furthermore, Isaiah 42:1-3 states: "Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him, he shall make the right to go forth to the nations. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. ... He shall make the right to go forth according to the truth."
Many Christians have been led to believe that speaks of Jesus because one sentence in the book of Matthew claims it does. However, Jesus did rise up as a teacher-orator. He did cry out to make his voice heard on many occasions, and he certainly did cause his voice to be heard in the street and on the roads as he spoke to the “great multitudes” that followed him “from Galilee, and from Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan."
The modern son of man knows who he is, and what he is, and he knows why he is a man of sorrows and well acquainted with grief, and why he suffers many things, to fulfill the prophecies of Isaiah and Jesus. And being only human, he is more like a prodigal son as a modern son of man, who confesses at age 72 that he is quite flawed and certainly not "holier than thou." No human being is.
Songs, the Best Communication
A song can be the best way to communicate an idea, but many songs are sung to the air because many people do not understand or do not pay attention to the words.
Many singer-songwriters have been trying to get through to humanity for a very long time. Countless songs have been sung, all trying to point out the need for love, justice, fairness, equality, and peace. From Woody Guthrie to his son Arlo, there have been plenty of singer-prophets, imploring people to be fair, and peaceful.
