Book Of Revelation And Last Days
"The Book of Revelation has come to be read as prophesying the events of the end of history. A general resurrection, a general judgment and a new age."Adela Yarbro Collins, PBS Frontline
"The book of the Revelation opens with the announcement of its title, and with a benediction on those who give diligent heed to its solemn prophetic utterances:
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John:
2 who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
The translators of the King James Version of the Bible have given this book the title," The Revelation of St. John the Divine."In this they contradict the very first words of the book itself, which declare it to be"The Revelation of Jesus Christ."Jesus Christ is the Revelator, not John. John is but the penman employed by Christ to write out this Revelation for the benefit of His church. John is the disciple of Jesus who was beloved and highly favored among the twelve. He was evangelist and apostle, and the writer of the Gospel and the epistles which bear his name. To his previous titles must now be added that of prophet; for the Revelation is a prophecy, and John so denominates it. It is not only the Revelation of Jesus Christ, but it is the Revelation which God gave unto Him. It comes first from the great Fountain of all wisdom and truth, God the Father, by Him it was communicated to Jesus Christ, the Son; and Christ sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John.
The Character of the Book.
This is expressed in one word," Revelation."A Revelation is something revealed or made known, not something hidden and concealed. Moses tells that"The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever."Deuteronomy 29: 29. The very title of the book, then, is a sufficient refutation of the opinion sometimes expressed that this book is among the mysteries of God, and cannot be understood. Were this the case, it should bear some such title as"The Mystery" or"The Hidden Book," certainly not"The Revelation."
"To show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass."
His servants—who are they? For whose benefit was the Revelation given? Was it to be for any specified persons, for any particular churches, for any special period of time? No, it is for all the church in all time, as long as any of the events predicted within the book remain to be accomplished. It is for all those who can claim the appellation," His servants," wherever or whenever they may live.
God says that this prophecy was given to reveal coming events to His servants, yet many of the expositors of His word tell us that no man can understand it! This is as if God would undertake to make known to mankind important truths, yet fall into the worse than earthly folly of clothing them in language or in figures which human minds could not comprehend! It is as if He would command a person to behold some distant object, and then erect an impenetrable barrier between him and the object! Or as if He would give His servants a light to guide them through the gloom of night, yet throw over that light a pall so thick and heavy that not a ray of its brightness could penetrate the obscuring folds! How men dishonor God who thus trifle with His word! No; the Revelation will accomplish the object for which it was given, and"His servants"Will learn from it the"things which must shortly come to pass," and which concern their eternal salvation."
Uriah Smith, The Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation,
Review and Herald Publishing Association, pg. 339-40, 1972
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi proves beyond a shadow of doubt that these "Are the times described in the Holy Bible as the Last Judgment and in the Koran as Qiyamah, the Resurrection time. Astrologically it is also called the Age of Aquarius, the time of rebirth and of great spiritual development on the Earth."
"Today, Sahaja Yoga has reached the state of Mahayoga, which is en- masse evolution manifested through it. It is this day's Yuga Dharma. It is the way the Last Judgment is taking place. Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the Divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their spirit." (Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)
"The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now." (Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)
Shri Mataji is indeed the incarnation of the Shakti, the promised Comforter/Moshiach/Mahdi sent by God Almighty to proclaim and explain His Divine Message to humanity. Due to advanced age and health problems Shri Mataji, now more than 83-years-old, has withdrawn completely from public life. It is now left to those outside the Sahaja Yoga organization to spread His Divine Message of the promised Last Judgment and Resurrection to all the nations and people. The only alternative for conscientious SYs to announce the same is to promote this website, and ensure Shri Mataji's Divine Message reaches those believers waiting God Almighty's eschatological promise of bodily resurrection (Kundalini awakening) and spiritual immortality (moksa). This is the only way to ensure the faithful of all religious and spiritual traditions are afforded the evidence, opportunity, knowledge, experience and right to draw their own conclusions if indeed it is the promised Age of the Last Judgment and Resurrection.
The Book of Revelation prophesies a general resurrection, judgment and new age, precisely what Shri Mataji has been declaring over the decades to all the nations and people. The Revelation will accomplish the object for which it was given, and"His servants"Will learn from it the"things which must shortly come to pass," and which concern their eternal salvation. Just bear witness and lend your unswerving support to Her cause. Do not empower the Alan Wherrys and John Noyces of the WCASY and SY leadership. After witnessing the tragic events unfolding in America, Russia and Australia there is no question now that they are possessed by satanic negativity. There is no other reason for them to be so unwittingly oblivious to the fact that they are collectively working against the fulfillment of God Almighty's Plan for humanity through His Shakti, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
