Jesus is Born on Earth – A New Alliance
By Stefania Caterina und Tomislav Vlašić
From the book: Rewriting History – Volume II – “The Universe and its Inhabitants”, page 179:
Dear listeners, before we begin with the reading foreseen for today, I would like to make an introduction because it is very important to have an overview of the book. Now we cannot skip over the pages; we have to proceed step by step as from now on every page deals with our daily life and with the reality we are living in this time. I would like to set up this reflection like a dialogue because I want to speak to all men of good will with a dialogue that is also our testimony: we will speak about Jesus Christ.
Thus I turn to all those who belong to different religions: you are waiting for salvation. Salvation comes through the Saviour. I invite you to seek the Saviour and to seek salvation. Let go of the religiosity that has become the centre of your attention. The living God should be the centre of your attention.
I turn to the non-believers: believe, too. Every man has his idols, yet, idols are masks that cover up man’s inner emptiness and compensate it. I invite you to be honest before the mystery, that is, to have the honesty of real people of good to wait and seek.
I speak to you intellectuals and scientists: you act in intellectual honesty to get to the root of all mysteries: to God.
I appeal to you Christians: I tell you that it is not enough to belong to a religion that is called Christian. Jesus has come to Earth to reveal the face of God and you are called to keep revealing God’s true face to all others, otherwise you are a hindrance for those who have the good will to seek God.
I would like to add another element now at the beginning: do not look at Jesus within the frame of religiosity: our testimony is the following: in view of the coming of Jesus Christ the Earth progressed, it progressed more than the other planets of the low universe. After Jesus Christ, the Earth continued to progress even more, and we are entering the time when everything has to be recapitulated in Christ. Thus the figure of Christ is not a figure of religiosity: He is the future of humanity, the future of each creature that will be led back to the original project of God. Let us listen.
Jesus Christ is Born on Earth
Countless books have been written about the coming of Jesus Christ, and rivers of words have been spent in sermons. Therefore, I do not intend to speak about the coming of Jesus; I would rather help you understand the importance of this event in the history of the universe determining an epochal turning point beginning from the Earth.
A New Alliance
The journey of the chosen people approached a turning point; along the history it had repeatedly offended God. Nevertheless, God neither stopped to love His people nor did He alter his predilection for Israel. In His eternal faithfulness He fulfilled the promise made to the progenitors immediately after original sin: He sent the Saviour, His Only-begotten Son and second Person of the Most Holy Trinity.
Jesus Christ, the promised Saviour to humanity, entered into history and revealed Himself openly on Earth. The Gospel tells the extraordinary events that accompanied the birth of Jesus. He was born from a young woman called Mary who lived in a village situated in a remote corner of the Roman Empire. She was a virgin and espoused to a man called Joseph. The Archangel Gabriel appeared to her to announce her that she would conceive a child still remaining virgin. The Spirit of God would have accomplished this: “And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High … The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called Son of God.“ (Lk 1:31-36) More
