"As for the best leaders, when their work is accomplished the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'"

About the Message 

Our predicament and this tribulation has increased as we have approached the end of the age, and it was foreseen and foretold, or prophesied. 

However, it was also foreseen and foretold that in order for the humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and “meek” majority of people to inherit the earth and enjoy the birthright with which we've been endowed by our Creator, an authentic, truly righteous judgment would be needed to set things straight.

That is because proper, honest judgment is needed to correct the political and religious leaders of the world who have brought us to this terrible state of inequity and injustice -- because it was not God who caused this tribulation. It was the vain folly of Man.

However, even though a judgment and a divine intervention and intercession was prophesied, it is not as most religious people expected. For while they want a conquering hero and king, the fulfillment of real prophecies is not about the rule of one man, nor is it about one world religion or one world government. Moreover, it has nothing to do with a so-called “holy war” or magic, or anything supernatural. 

The fulfillment of prophecy is about truth, love, reason and justice overcoming false beliefs, hate, bigotry and injustice. And it is about the pen finally proving mightier than the sword.

Fulfilling prophecy, the author of this message is a man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief. He is from your midst, and of your brethren. And he is not a holy man. In fact, he is a contrite son of man who is painfully aware of his failings and mistakes, and realizes his limitations, impotence and helplessness to deal with the elements that are causing such horrific suffering, death, and destruction in our world.

He knows that all he can do is tell the truth and deliver this promised judgment, and trust in God that as soon as enough people get the message it will provide the intervention and intercession that was promised. For it is the message that is important, not the messenger, and it is the truth, and nothing but the truth, that will set us free.

The judgment, intervention and intercession is not to issue commandments. It cannot be imposed, and it is designed not to condemn but to educate; not to punish but to correct; and not to destroy but to save. It is merely to counsel and guide humanity to the truth, explain religious prophecies and the nature of God as much as possible, plead for the poor, the elderly and the disadvantaged, celebrate our diversity, show you things to come, and suggest how we may proceed forward toward a brighter future together.

The judgment and the fulfillment of prophecy is about the liberation and empowerment of the people, so that we may finally become the family of religions and races and nations with governments that will be truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, at long last.

The promised judgment helps us understand that only God the eternal, omnipresent Great Spirit-Parent reigns Sovereign, above all human beings (including he who delivers the message). And it explains that the fulfillment of prophecy is to bring about a reformation of our religions and our governments so that they will use the common wealth for the common good, promote the general welfare, and ensure domestic tranquility, pluralism and freedom of religions, equal rights and opportunities, and justice for all the people.

That is what this comprehensive message and judgment is all about, and the message cites Judeo-Christian scriptural evidence merely because Christianity is the largest religion in the world and the most powerful, but the message is universal in scope and appropriate for all religions. 

The messenger began delivering the message in 1984, but, as was prophesied, he is rejected by his generation. Meanwhile, spiritually blind leaders still lead their blind flocks astray because the greatest refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism and the greatest refuge of a hypocrite is religiosity, and the proud and militant have claimed that their religion or nation or race or culture is superior to all others, or that their wealth entitles them to rule. But, they are woefully wrong.

Know this, that it is the truth, and nothing but the truth, that shall set us free, and the messenger was sent to provide true counsel and liberate and empower you all.

The Greatest People

The greatest people are known for their good works, which they do not for the sake or personal reward or glorification, but for the benefit of humanity as a whole.

The greatest people are unassuming, humble, gentle, kind and peaceful. And some of the greatest people the ones who use their talents, skills and positive passion to produce good works for the enjoyment and edification and benefit of all humanity through art, through music and song, through poetry, through literature, and through movies.

Some of the greatest people may not be as talented or skilled or educated, and may not seem great, but humbly live their lives doing good work for the benefit of society. They are the ones who are grateful for what they have, take pride in jobs well done, knowing that it takes all kinds of people doing all kinds of jobs in order to make society work.

If enough human beings on the planet had merely learned from the greatest people of the past and present, the world would be a far better place.

The trouble is, too many people have not learned from the greatest people. Too many people have NOT learned from literature or poetry or art or movies or songs. Too many people have not learned the lessons of history.

Too many people have instead listened to those who pretend to be the greatest but are self-important and self-righteous and seek and fight for personal power and authority, and for wealth and domain. 

Too many people have also listened to hypocrites who claim to do many wonderful works in the name of the Lord, or in the name of God and Country. And, because they are hypocrites who serve themselves and "Mammon" rather that God or Country, the people are polarized and divided, forced to fight for power over each other.

Therefore, it is time that everyone finally understands that a house or nation divided against itself cannot stand. For too many people are misled and divided because they do not understand that the greatest leaders are those who lead by example, and show the way.

That is not to say that no political or religious leaders have been or are among the greatest people. In fact, some are because they actually want to represent and serve all the people, and they are trying very hard to establish fairness, harmony, mutual respect, justice, and peace.

But, alas, some do not. Some political and religious leaders do the opposite. So we must ask: Who cannot see that the proud and militant forces of greed and self-interest fight dirty and even try to deceive you in order to gain or regain power?

Further we must ask: Who cannot see that regardless of which partisan political party is in power, our political economic system works not for us in the vast majority, but mainly for the wealthiest few?

That is why The 21st Century Declaration of Independence is so very necessary in order to bring about a reformation that will enable us to choose good leadership and change and save the world, for all our sake, and for the sake of God.

People who want to reform their governments should adopt it. And that includes the "Occupy" movement in the U.S., because there are some very wealthy and powerful forces trying to stop it by discrediting and besmirching it. In fact, they have hired masked goons to cause trouble in some cities to make the movement seem bad, and some television news outlets in some cities have focused on the trouble rather than on what the movement is really about.

This video shows the better side, the majority side of the Occupy Movement, which is peaceful but feels it necessary to protest and demonstrate their resentment of the inequitable political economic system Reaganism has wrought.
