Forgiveness Requires Faith

True forgiveness is not possible without strong faith. To have faith in God is faith in a God, the One True Living God, who is the God of perfect knowledge -- there is nothing that God does not know -- the God of total power -- there is nothing that God can not do -- the God of complete justice -- He has meted out perfect justice every single time so far, that will not change -- the God of infinite love -- God loves you more than you will ever be able to fathom -- the God who created all there is, creator of heaven and earth.

When you forgive someone you are saying you realize that the number one reason God created the fourth dimension of time is so you may learn to forgive. When you forgive you do so out of awareness God is aware of everything that has happened. You forgive because God is infinitely more powerful than every being on earth and every being in heaven. God, of course, has power over those who might have wronged you. Your forgiveness is not an act of a weak person too weak to fight those who might be in the wrong. You forgive because you know God fights on your behalf. And that God has total power. There is nothing that God can not do. You do not worry if you have sufficient power yourself. You only worry that you walk the path of God, the path of righteousness, and justice, and generosity, and love.

To forgive is to learn to walk light by putting your burdens on to the shoulders of God. He rejoices when you do that. Forgiveness is an expression of faith.

Jerusalem Is To Be A Global City

Half of earth is the Pacific. For the other half Jerusalem is the geographic center. It is meant to be that way.

Christianity sits on the base that is Judaism. Yes, Jesus was the Messiah prophesied in the Jewish Bible. Christians are best positioned to understand the Koran, because Jesus is the sacrificed Son in the Gospel, in the Koran Jesus is the denied Son. Christians worship Jesus as the human incarnation of the Son of God. That puts Christians in a good position to recognize Lord Rama, the first human incarnation of the Holy Father, and Lord Krishna, the second human incarnation of that same God. The Buddha was an elightened human being who never claimed to be God. It is wrong to worship Buddha, although there is much to learn from him. I went through that same experience late in 2015 before I ascended to heaven, and descended back to earth. But the Buddha stopped at enlightenment.

I lay claim to Jerusalem, all of it, on behalf of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Jerusalem is of great significance for the millennial reign. The earth will end suddenly but it will not end before the long promised millennial reign is over.

I Will Take The First 10% Of Your Income

Towards A Global Government

I envision a world government to which every member country pays 1% of its GDP as tax. To the national government citizens pay income tax and indirect taxes. That income tax might be 25% or 35%, maybe even 40%. Sometimes you pay 35% to the federal government and another 10% to the city and state governments. And if you are to give 10% of your income to God, what are we looking at? Are you giving away half of your income? Maybe more? 60%?

There is income, and then there is wealth. Maybe all billionaires ought to limit themselves and their families to a billion and give away the rest. There can be foundations. There can be wealth tax. There is an urgency to meet the basic needs of all humanity.

There are laws that enforce taxation. If you don't pay up, you could go to jail. But the 10% you give to God is not like that. If you don't give you don't go to jail. If you don't give you don't go to hell either. The tithe is not God's tax. The act of not giving that 10% to God is not sin.

But it is guidance. That guidance is an act of love. God who created everything has no need for your money. Then why ask for it? And not just any 10% but the first 10%. Why? So you may, through your act of giving, reassure yourself that 100% of your income, 100% of your wealth comes from God. That is total surrender. It is so you may engage in work and generate income and create wealth and yet not fall into that trap of idolatry that worship of wealth is. Only God can be worshipped. Worship of wealth is idolatry and it takes you away from God and salvation becomes impossible. You do not give away 10% because priests and pastors need to be paid salaries or because houses of worship need to be built and maintained or because the hungry need to be fed, the naked need to be clothed, and the homeless need to be housed. All that is necessary but secondary. The primary reason is so you may attain 24/7 God-consciousness in the easiest way possible. You do it for you.

And so I will take the first 10% of your income. You are to give the first 10% of your income to God. There is no jail or hell if you don't. But if you don't that might lead you away from God and salvation. Paradise is so wonderful it is worth 100% of your income and wealth, it is worth your very life. But you are merely being asked to give the first 10% of your income.

How do you give me your 10%? You give it to the house of worship you visit. It is not too much to ask that each such house of worship keep their book keeping transparent. Taking care of the needy is the first order of business. Although worship related expenses are very much included. Try and get the ratio right. Reach out to the needy globally.
