What Jesus says about the coming Tribulation is awful. And since we can see now why He is right, we cannot ignore His warning! Perhaps you think the evil we face is actual demons, or you might prefer to blame some aspect of ourselves for persuading so many people to choose fear-based emotions over love. Whatever it is, let’s call it “the nasties.” Whatever is fighting the raising of this planet’s vibration away from fear and toward love, there is an epic battle brewing. And Jesus tells us its effects on us and on those we love will be horrific:
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death” (MT 10:20-21).
“For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will” (MK 13:19).
But still, you and I have no choice but to fight for the triumph of love over fear. Those at the highest levels tell us the earth is so deeply negative now that wars and disasters will proliferate and humankind may not survive! So they are working through us to turn the tide. As is Jesus:
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (JN 16:33).
“And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (MT 28:20).
We come to earth with amnesia about the fact that we will never die. Our ignorance has helped us take our spiritual lessons seriously, but it also has made it much too easy for people to choose fear, anger, and hatred over love. As a remedy, two hundred years ago those at the highest eternal levels decided to reveal some afterlife truths so we can be confident our lives are eternal. Apparently this new knowledge is going to sharpen our focus on our need to choose love, while still preserving enough negativity to maintain the earth’s usefulness as a spiritual school. In the first part of the nineteenth century, those at the highest levels began to seek ideal ways to reveal to us some important afterlife facts. And their doing this seems to have been treated by the nasties that feed on fear as such a threat to their survival that they rolled out their biggest gun! They had long ago tested their temptation options on the most loving man who ever lived, and they had found one weapon that worked. Jesus vibrated so completely in love that none of the nasties could provoke Him to rage… until eventually one managed to do it:
“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. And He said to them, ‘It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer”; but you are making it a robbers’ den’” (MT 21:12-13).
And thus the nasties long ago learned the disruptive power of righteous indignation. Show a person whose whole life is love an obvious wrong being committed in front of him, and his first impulse is to attack that wrong, even though his doing that would be a fear-based mistake! What Jesus did in the temple that day was counterproductive. He could have sat with the money-changers and pigeon-sellers and patiently taught them in perfect love! Instead, in a fit of righteous indignation He increased the world’s negativity while He taught no one anything.
Righteous indignation is the greatest weapon the nasties can use against spiritually advanced people. I really understand that now! I have been a target of righteous indignation for months, and I have come to see that this exposure to such extreme negativity has been a wonderful gift. If it hadn’t happened, I would not have done the research and come to realize with awe what is beginning to unfold. And without this new awareness, I could not know how essential it is that we forearm as many love-based people as we can!
I may be the only one living who has extensively studied the afterlife evidence, the Gospel teachings, the history of Christianity, and information derived from mainstream science. If you have shared all my obsessions, please get in touch with me; but insofar as I have been able to tell, mine has been a singular set of hobbies. This means I am one of the few who can see how well evidence from all four of these sources amazingly and in small details fits together! And of course, such extensive correspondences among four different disciplines simply could not arise by chance. What is more, five years of doing Seek Reality has put me in contact with people who are important to the future of this work, and who otherwise might have no easy way to network with one another. I am not important, but I can see now that I am being positioned to become a nexus among people who really are important! So it should not be a surprise to find that I am an early target of the Tribulation. The nasties first target people who are being positioned to be the glue; then with them gone, whatever effort is ongoing tends to fall apart. So I should have been less surprised than I was when negative entities tried to wreck my life.
I have made some cherished friends among the people now working to raise the planet’s vibration. And early this year one beloved friend altogether lost her mind in front of me. Someone whose friendship I treasure switched in a moment from also treasuring my friendship to a fit of righteous indignation because I would not follow her lead in attacking another of my friends. When I would not yield to her demands, she set about trying to destroy as many of my other friendships as she could!
It was only when I saw the connection between what my friend was doing and the Lord’s temple tantrum that I realized it has been righteous indignation that has derailed all the many attempts that were made over the past two centuries to teach us that our minds are eternal. For example:
Righteous indignation has the power to turn good people into agents of the negativity that now threatens the survival of humankind. Even Jesus was not immune to it! Fortunately, though, He saw the risk, and He zealously warned us against it. His teaching that we must never fight back and His teachings on the role of forgiveness are the most essential Gospel words of all, since unless we follow them closely it will be impossible for love to prevail:
“But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also” (MT 5:39).
Peter asked him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven” (MT 18:21-23).
There are such powerful forces now working to raise the consciousness vibration of this planet that even my spirit guide, although still a realist, has begun to think that love will win. The best spiritual medium I ever have known calls the ascended beings leading this effort “the Unity.” And the more of us who will work with the Unity, the easier it will be for love to prevail. If you have read this far, then perhaps you are being called to help advance this world-saving work! But how can you protect yourself against righteous indignation? Here are a few tips:
We will need to know more about righteous indignation if we are to defuse its destructive power, so we’ll continue this discussion next week. Meanwhile, only know that love will win! We will all come together in love as we follow the Unity’s perfect guidance. If well-intentioned people everywhere can just hold true to universal love, the Kingdom of God begins to dawn today.
