All types of diseases and plagues are running rampant throughout various countries. Ebola, enterovirus (common in South America, now becoming prevalent in the U.S.), water contamination and so on. Many places in the world still remain without proper amounts of food and water (or food at all); innocent children and others are dying in war zones (Ukraine, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc).
Maran Yeshua (Isho) said, “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars…For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”
In the Religion of Light we know that the Light that has existed in the world is diminishing. We know that the celestial beings that have been protecting humanity from destroying itself are now gradually ascending from earth’s atmosphere and returning to their original Home. Religion of Light adherents also know that when the world becomes more dim, the more violence, sickness and “natural disasters” occur.
In the Prophecy of the Trees, we read: “When the worm crawls through the belly of man and his insides become like water… then you shall know that the majority of the Light has ascended to the upper levels of the celestial paradise.” It has been stated that this section of the prophecy indicates a wide spread disease.
With all that in mind, it could become very overwhelming for some people, including some of our own brothers and sisters, especially if they live outside a physical community in their location where they can offer support to one another. But believers can be assured by Maran Yeshua’s own words: “See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end… all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”
We can take comfort in Maran Yeshua’s words, and in the words of the Third Messenger, Mir Izgadda; He has lovingly told His disciples: “Always be determined to serve God with all your strength. Never give up hope, even in the face of opposition. The Light of the Father shines even in the darkest of nights so that all those seeking Him in honesty may find Him.” We also read: “Walk in the world as a soldier for the Truth, be brave as a lion but peaceful as a dove.”
Adherents of the Religion of Light have a glorious future which they look to. The Scriptures tell us, “While the old earth is in the process of dying a new world is being created. The old world is gradually passing away, bereft of the Spirit of Life – for a new world has been established in the upper creation of the universe – and it will replace all human governments. The coming kingdom can not be compared to any earthly political system – for it has the Column of Light and Truth as its focus.”
May each of us remain faithful while residing in this old, dark world, and continue to hold our heads up high, always encouraged by the Messengers’ words, and look to the bright future.
