End of Times, Peace, and the Triumphal Return of Jesus

A Spiritual Roadmap to Triumph in 2024

My Friends, Sisters, and Brothers, on Earth and in Earth’s Heaven,

God Is Present!
Jesus Is Arriving!

It is with immense joy in my heart that I present to everyone our Spiritual Roadmap to triumph in 2024.

I urge your attention to the fact that at any time of any year, under any circumstance, we cannot forget that the greatest event in History, which is about to happen, is the Glorious Return of the Divine Master Jesus. This is the reason why the Organizations of God’s Good Will exist on Earth, among them the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit and the Legion of Good Will (LGW).

We live in challenging times in the world, under the constant risk of annihilation that humanity has created for its own destiny. And the more threatening the human journey becomes, the stronger our Alliance with the Heavenly Father needs to be. He advises us in Psalm 50, verse 15:

“Call upon me in the day of trouble.”

As I have told you the day of trouble in the present time is every forthcoming year until the Final Judgment takes place, which will be terrifying only for those who, wallowing in the mire of hatred, do not fulfill the Sublime Law of Love of the Celestial Educator—“Love one another, as I have loved you. Only by this shall all of you be recognized as my disciples, if you have the same Love for one another” (the Gospel according to John 13:34 and 35).

The Times have not just arrived; they are already passing us by! This urgency calls us to remember fundamental Bible passages that demonstrate the importance of the primary role of the Good Will Organizations at the end of this apocalyptic cycle, genuinely integrated into Jesus Christ. Immersed in Him, they receive His purifying mantle, carry on unbeaten, defeating darkness. This is because they truly follow the Master’s Light, surmount mountains, and overcome all obstacles.

Based on the practice of Complete Charity—Material and Spiritual, as defined by the late Proclaimer of the Divine Religion, Brother Alziro Zarur (1914-1979)—aware of their value and spiritually secure about themselves—for they are active and communicative participants of the Mystical Body of Christ—the Religion of the Third Millennium and the Legion of Good Will carry out their extraordinary task, planned and established in the Highest even before descending to the realm of forms. Their Supreme Objective is to prepare the way for the Triumphal Return of Jesus to planet Earth, which He founded with the formation of His Ecumenical Flock.

Jesus Among Us Again

The Return of the Prince of Peace must be greatly emphasized at all times, even more so when human beings unleash their roars of war. Jesus among us once again is truly the immortal certainty of better days!

Therefore, let us always be ready, attentive to the Second Visit of Christ and, in this way, grow, not anxious, tense, but happy, because this is about the proximity of a magnificent event: Jesus is arriving!

The Sublime Friend concluded His Luminous Apocalypse, which closes the Holy Bible, precisely asserting this unparalleled Return, a new dawn for humanity, in unforgettable and comforting verses. Combined with the others, they constitute this Mystic-Spiritual Roadmap so that we triumph in 2024, with the certainty of our perennial victory.

Better Days in Worse Times

In the challenging year that is announced for nations, let us also heed encouraging words that the noble Brother Dr. Bezerra de Menezes (Spirit) presented during the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Temple of Good Will, on October 24, 2009, in Brasília/DF, Brazil.

What is coming is very serious; however, as declared by the Doctor of the Poor, it is possible to “ensure better days in worse times.”

Let us focus on God, on Christ, and on the Luminous Spirits, the Blessed Souls committed to the Glorious Return of the Supreme Commander of this world. They salute the Christians of the New Commandment, Friends of Jesus, Sisters and Brothers of Good Will, since the Spiritual Roadmap to our victory in 2024 depends on the direct help of these selfless Sisters and Brothers.

Let us never forget the remarkable thought of the late Legionnaire of Good Will Osmar Carvalho e Silva (1912-1975), recorded through the sensitivity of Brother Chico Periotto, on June 6, 1992, in Figueira da Foz (Portugal):

“Our work depends on your dedication, but your success depends on our support.”

Peace Is Not Utopia

There is an excerpt of an impromptu speech of mine that the Jesus, the Ecumenical Christ, the Divine Statesman, Academy, published in the book A Proclamação do Novo Mandamento de Jesus — A saga heroica de Alziro Zarur (1914-1979) na Terra [The Proclamation of the New Commandment of Jesus — The Heroic Saga of Alziro Zarur (1914-1979) on Earth], which we launched on October 24, 2009, before a crowd that filled the facilities of the TGW and its surroundings:

There are those who believe, as if it were fatalism attributed by them in disapproval of the mystics, that war is inseparable from human beings, with no other possibility for rapid progress. Naturally, they are deluded. Perhaps for now they still lack the resolution to oppose any obstacle and strive fearlessly for truly more peaceful times. This requires a decisive dose of boldness: to go against what certain ruinous “age-old customs” have “decided” to be the ineluctable path of the masses. But there are many who possess this fearlessness. Sérgio Vieira de Mello (1948-2003), a Brazilian diplomat killed in a UN Peace mission in Iraq, was one of them. I do not affirm that the murderous instinct will suddenly vanish from the face of the planet, except through the manifestation of a Will Superior to ours: that of God. I just do not accept radical models―classified as immovable realism―that paralyze society. Let us say, for the sake of argument, that if a world war were to come, we would have to face it with all the necessary courage. Do not think of running away from anything. However, one day, the Ecumenical Fraternity and Divine Justice will change for the better the bumpy fate of individuals, families, and nations.

When creatures spiritually purify themselves, everything around them is transformed.

Without this spiritual, solidary attitude of the Divine Commandment, propagated by one of the greatest Figures that have walked this Earth, Jesus, the Compassionate Economist and Heavenly Politician, it becomes more difficult to experience unarmed Peace.

Biblical and spiritual passages for your reading, reflection, and urgent action in favor of Goodness:

Acts of the Apostles of Jesus 1:11:
11 “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into Heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into Heaven.”

The Gospel according to Luke 21:27 and 28:
27 And then they will see the Son of God returning in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

Apocalypse 22:7, 12, and 20:
7 And Christ promised: “Behold, I am returning soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this Book.”
12 And Christ repeats: “Behold, I am returning soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am returning soon.” Amen. Return, Lord Jesus!

The Gospel according to Mark 13:33, 35 to 37:
33 “Be on guard, watch and pray! You do not know when that time will come.
35 “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the Lord will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.
36 “If He returns suddenly, do not let Him find you sleeping.
37 “What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Keep watch!’”

Second Epistle of Apostle Peter 3:10 to 13:
10 But the Day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the Heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the Earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
11 Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness,
12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!
13 But according to His promise we are waiting for New Heavens and a New Earth in which God’s Righteousness dwells.

The Gospel according to Matthew 24:6 and 7:
6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Apocalypse 21:1 to 8:

1 Then I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
2 I, John, saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold! 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.
4 ‘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.”
5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then He said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the Spring of the Water of Eternal Life.
7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Dr. Bezerra de Menezes (Spirit):

All of you, who deserve the respect, esteem, and Fraternity of the so-called Invisibles, receive the Divine Blessings in greater, absolute, ultimate proportions, for the transformation of human beings is the only haven, the sole ship, ensuring better days in worse times coming upon humanity.

Brother Flexa Dourada (Spirit):

When everything seems absolutely out of place, when there seems to be no reason for things, we cannot forget that the greatest expression of Hope known to a Christian is the Return of Jesus. Let no one forget the Return of Jesus. He said He would return and come as a thief, unexpectedly.

The Gospel according to John 14:27 and Matthew 28:20:

My Peace I leave with you; my Peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. I give you God’s Peace, which the world cannot give. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid! And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the world.

Peace Be With You!

The always remembered Brother Zarur used to warn:

“There is no safety without God.”

I myself was inspired to write that the secret of spiritual and personal safety at the End of Times is precisely to be integrated into the Divine Law, expressed on Earth by Christ Jesus, who is God within us.

When the paths in the world seem like a dead end, let us always turn our attention to the Gospel of Jesus, especially to the accounts of our Master's Resurrection. He overcame death! When looking for His Apostles and Disciples, He greeted them with the vibration that should remain in our Souls:

“Peace be with you!” (Good News of Christ according to Luke 24:36)

I pray to the Heavenly Father that these sacred guidelines reach all the hearts of Good Will, in a constant spiritual and material renewal.

My Sisters and Brothers, this is what I wish for you in 2024: Peace be with you!
Praised be the Father of Mercy!

Jesus Lives in Our Hearts Forever!
