Dearest Brothers and Sisters,
Today we will read quite a long section. In this section it is explained how the angels and the faithful brothers and sisters to God have been integrated into the work of Christ at the beginning of the world. The Sacred Scripture has recorded these events but not in the way we know them today. So, today and in the next three episodes God wants to open the horizon of our mind so that we understand that the angels and the faithful brothers and sisters are part of the universal Church, and that eventually the Christians of the Earth will have to abandon geocentrism, that is, being focused only on the Earth, in order to get a broader view and to recognize the universal communion and the action of God which takes place through His powerful instruments.
From the book, “The Universe and it Inhabitants”, on page 192.
The Risen Christ visits the humanities faithful to God
You know from the Gospel that in the night Jesus was born in Bethlehem an angle announced the event to some shepherd who were passing the night outside to guard their flocks: “But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord … Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests’” (Lk 2:10-14).
The angel who brought this announcement was the Archangel Michael who is the head of all hosts of angels. It was up to him to proclaim the birth of the Saviour that would have marked the history of the universe forever.
It is always the angels who pave the way and announce humanity the most important events before they take place. God never leaves the people alone before great events, which are also great mysteries of the inscrutable divine wisdom. The angels are sent so that men and women understand what has happened or will happen. At times they are sent to single individuals in view of their mission as it occurred to Mary, when She was visited by the Archangel Gabriel. Other times they appear to several individuals together as it occurred to the shepherds. Again other times they appear to an entire people to help them in a particular undertaking as it occurred to the people of Israel during the flight from Egypt.
However, nowadays the existence of the angels is doubted even by Christians. Added to this is the extreme rationality that guides your thinking. Disbelief and rationality are a major obstacle to the manifestation of the angels who respect your freedom in the same way as does God. It is exactly your freedom that limits the action of the angels, which leads to very negative consequences for you: God does not allow the angels to act fully if you do not want them beside you, and so you deny yourself stupidly their great and precious help. The demons, however, act undisturbed on Earth making exactly use of the disbelief and rationality of the people: when you deny the existence of the devil in the name of reason, you renounce combating him and he makes a mockery of you; when you think you are clever, that is the moment you are deceived. The angels respect your freedom and move away from you when you do not want to believe in their existence. On the contrary, the demons do not respect you at all; they wait for you to deny their existence to hit you treacherously. Think about it carefully: would it not be more convenient for you to be surrounded by angels than by demos?
The Archangel Michael announced the birth of the Saviour not only on Earth but also in the high universe where the humanities live who remained faithful to God since creation. He did the same on Alfa Centauri which is in the low universe even though its inhabitants belong to the faithful humanities. They did not ignore the birth of Jesus since they had put themselves at the service of God from the beginning of human history collaborating fully with the angels to help the weaker humanities and prepare the way to the coming of Jesus. It was therefore right that these humanities received the announcement of the birth of the Saviour.
Saint Michael gave these humanities the permission, in the name of God, to set off to Earth. Thus some kings and priests of the high universe and of Alfa Centauri accompanied by other brothers and sisters arrived on Earth to adore little Jesus and give testimony of their faithfulness. Their coming to Earth took place in silence and discretion. They worshipped the Saviour while only Mary Most Holy and Saint Joseph were present. Nevertheless, the passage of their powerful spaceships left unequivocal signs in the sky, which the people of that time could only recognize as a comet star and some wise kings who had come from a vaguely defined orient to offer their gifts to little Jesus. Actually, the faithful humanities brought first and foremost themselves as a gift and then the first fruits of their nature and the best products of their humanity. Doing so, those men offered themselves, the nature of their planet and the fruit of their science, intelligence and ability. They placed everything on the feet of the Saviour as a sign of obedience and veneration.
That was the great Epiphany, that is, the manifestation of the divinity and royalty of Jesus Christ, not only to the humanity of Earth but also to other humanities of the universe who were ready to welcome Him. Through worshipping of Baby Jesus by the faithful humanities the basis was laid for the Epiphany of the Lord that will occur at His glorious return at the end of time. However, the evangelization of the universe is already taking place and will increase more and more because it is the will of God that all humans in the universe are reached by the announcement of salvation. When the evangelization of the universe is completed, only then the glorious manifestation of the Lord will take place according to the word of Jesus: “And the gospel must first be preached to all nations” (Mk 13:10).
These worshippers who came from space also kneeled down before the Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph asking for their blessing as a sign of admiration and gratitude towards these two sublime creatures of the planet Earth. After Jesus on the Cross had entrusted humanity to Mary, the faithful humanities welcomed and venerated Mary as Mother and Queen and they put themselves completely at Her disposal. In many Marian apparitions on Earth the faithful humanities were present and in action during the great signs left to the people. Moreover, from then on they venerated Saint Joseph as the most righteous man in human history: so righteous that God, the Father, chose him to look after His greatest gifts to humanity: His Son Jesus and Mary Most Holy.
During the whole earthly mission of Jesus the humanities faithful to God accompanied the Saviour with their prayers and the offering of themselves. Many of them often visited Him when He retreated at night to pray on His own. The angels and the faithful brothers and sisters took turns at serving Jesus in all His earthly needs faithfully and discretely. They followed at a distance and with great suffering the Passion of Christ. They felt sorrow and astonishment about such a rebellious action against God by the elected people of Israel; great sorrow they felt due to the rejection of the Saviour and His work that had been recognized only by a very small part of the people.
After Jesus was placed in the tomb, Saint Michael ordered them to return to their respective planets and await events.
Finally, Saint Michael announced them the Resurrection of Jesus Christ; they worshipped God recognizing in the Resurrection of Jesus a divine action of extraordinary power that marked the beginning of the rebirth of the entire creation.
The faithful humanities welcomed with profound veneration Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Saviour, who came to redeem the whole universe from the sin of the unfaithful progenitors. The consequences of original sin weighed also heavily, for divine justice, on the faithful humanities even though they were innocent because they were also part of the whole human family. Although the consequences were milder than those which the rebellious humanities to God had suffered,, the whole creation had been hurt by corruption and death. Therefore, even the faithful humanities had been waiting for the birth of the Saviour and followed in spirit the events on Earth suffering for His death bu gaining new force from His Resurrection. They knew that the work accomplished by the Saviour would touch the whole humanity of the universe since it meant the beginning of the pathway towards a new creation as promised by God to the progenitors and established in Jesus Christ.
Jesus had accomplished His work of redemption and had ascended to Heaven to sit gloriously at the right hand of the Father. He had died and resurrected offering Himself through the perfect sacrifice that had made Him a High Priest in eternity. The Father had laid everything in the hands of the Son, King of the universe. Now Jesus, as High Priest, would have gathered around Him the whole people of God in the entire universe guiding it toward the full realization of the promises made to the progenitors. God had promised victory over corruption and death and that the pure relationship between God and creation would be restored. The Saviour had paved the way, and now the people had to walk by following Jesus like a flock follows its shepherd. For this reason, the faithful humanities were called to act on His orders in order to help the humanities of the whole universe, especially the weak, to walk the path traced by Jesus.
After His ascension, Jesus Himself went to the brothers and sisters of the faithful humanities visiting their planets one by one. He showed them His glorious wounds and they worshipped and thanked Him. They renewed the offering of their life in absolute faithfulness to the programs of God. Jesus spent some time with them during which He instructed those humanities thoroughly about the Kingdom of God and the mission awaiting them.
Jesus constantly visits the planets of the high universe where He is welcomed, loved and worshipped as Son of God, High Priest and King of the universe. You should not be surprised about this because Jesus is the Immanuel which means God with us (Mt 1:23). He wants to be in the midst of His people; He is true God and true Man. The humanities of the high universe have always been faithful to God, and it is therefore right that they receive the visit of their King and Lord. Had your humanity welcomed Jesus as Son of God and Saviour, you would also be visited regularly by Him and the history of the universe would have been very different. Yet, this is not the case. However, Jesus has never abandoned you: in the Eucharist He has remained alive and present among you; yet, He is present under the appearance of bread and wine, hidden to the eyes of who does not believe. The Eucharistic presence can only be perceived through faith; this occurs for justice: the majority of the people of Earth has refused Jesus and thus cannot see Him. The same Christians will see Him at the end of times. This too occurs according to God’s justice.
Thus, the faithful humanities do not have the Eucharist by them but the real presence of Jesus: despite that, they worship the Eucharist and deeply respect the priests of the Earth who worthily celebrate it.
The time will come in which Jesus will live forever in the midst of His people, an immense people with no more distances, a single people in the whole universe. That will be the new creation, that is, the holy city described by the Bible, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away (Rev 21:3-4)”
There is no need to add anything to the passage you have just heard. The angels, the brothers and sisters who remained faithful to God since creation, that is, since the beginning of human history, are in a way present and help particularly the humanity of Earth. Through the coming of Jesus and through His redemption they are involved with powerful grace in order to live united with Christ and to help humanity throughout the whole universe and especially the one on Earth so that we reach the only Shepherd and become one single flock in the entire universe as foreseen by the Revelation in chapter 21 and 22. Therefore, it is very important that we deepen our relationship with the angels and that we invoke them because it is them who take us beyond the borders of our reasoning and towards the mystery because they contemplate God. This is the time when the Christians of the Earth have to become aware of the existence of life in the universe, in particular of the faithful brothers and sisters to God whose spiritual power may affect our life helping us to elevate ourselves to hasten the glorious manifestation of the Lord. The next part of the book until the end will accompany us by presenting us the instruments that are at the service of God for the recapitulation of the entire universe in Christ; there will be many appeals to the Church to join this project of God. We on Earth, who are enveloped by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ (but at the same time attached to evil), will not manage either to overcome the obstacles and trials we will face without the help of the instruments of God who are a gift of God through whom the grace flows.
I bless you; may God the Father, source of light, illuminate you so that you may receive a widened view of what God is doing in the whole universe and where He is taking us; He may illuminate your hearts so that you might fully respond to the word of the Gospel and that as children of the light and mystically united with Christ you might recognize all events that occur one after the other in this time in the whole universe and also on Earth. In the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
