Misgoverned Thoughts and the “Invisible Wolf”
My Friends, Brothers, and Sisters, in my book A Missão dos Setenta e o “lobo invisível” [The Mission of the Seventy and the “Invisible Wolf”], I included a lecture I gave on the Good Will Super Radio Network on December 31, 2004. Then I published it as a series of articles, to which I added new considerations, in the JESUS IS ARRIVING! magazine. From the ecumenical point of view of the Fourth Revelation, the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, I keep on fighting against the most unfortunate action of the misgoverned thoughts—which act, most of the time, as cunningly as an “invisible wolf,” a bad spirit, whether incarnated or not—and I discourse about the strategies to better protect us from their harmful effects.
Evils Drawn Away by Wisdom
(Proverbs 2:6 and 10-15)
“6 The Lord gives wisdom, from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
“10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
“11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you,
“12 delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech,
“13 who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways;
“14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil;
“15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.”
That means, the visible or invisible “wolf” is the one to work and try to keep the thoughts of the sheep misgoverned. However, the Good Shepherd, Jesus, always alert, reaches out His blessed, strong hands to the flock, whatever name it is given, so that it does not miss the lessons of His Divine Wisdom, but learns from it, thus drawing away all evils from their minds.
In my analysis of the Gospel of Jesus according to Luke 10:1-24, in Spirit and Truth, in the light of the New Commandment of the Ecumenical Christ, the Divine Statesman—“Love one another, as I have loved you. Only by this shall all of you be recognized as my disciples” (The Gospel according to John 13:34-35)—I illustrate my comments with another important passage from the Good News, as described in the notes by Mark 5:1-14: “The Healing of the Gadarene Demoniac,” also included in my book.
Fervent Prayer to Fight the “Invisible Wolf”
The “wolf,” characterized as an obsessing spirit, is usually much more active than the reincarnated “wolves” (men or women). Besides, it counts on the advantage of being invisible. How does the “invisible wolf” act? Through different ways. One very common way is: strange ideas start popping up into an individual’s mind. This person, then, thinks she/he is talking to herself/himself. No way! A crowd of wicked souls around start “whispering” in their ears appeals that should not be heard, since they are evil. To fight against such kind of beings―still inferior―there is only one solution. Jesus tells us in His Gospel according to Matthew 17:21: “This kind will not go out except by praying and vigilance.”
I will never get tired of repeating that it is crucial, at all times in our life, to cultivate the habit of praying. You have heard me saying that I never take a decision before turning my thoughts to God. And what is more: Those who have common sense will not go to sleep without praying to the Good Spirits, Blessed Souls.
For being timely, I will bring here the Spiritual Vigilance Prayer, by the late proclaimer of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, Alziro Zarur (1914-1979), which we recommend to always be said before going to bed:
“God Is Present!
“Lord Jesus, may the Glorious Phalanx of Saint Francis of Assisi, Patron of the Divine Legion of Good Will, protect my Spirit, not only my body, while I sleep. Should I be attacked by evil, may I be capable of fighting back instantly. But I beg for Your merciful protection in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Amen! It should be pointed out that we can also translate vigilance as Good Deeds; therefore, as the saying goes: “An idle brain is the devil’s workshop.”
Well, societies are in need of generous actions so that they can ethically thrive in different spiritual and human areas: in Politics, Religion, Sociology, Education, Science, Philosophy, at home, in public life, which is to say, everywhere. This is the answer―no longer from misgoverned thoughts―to fight omission, corruption, impunity . . . By the way, many are the names and disguises. Whose?! The “invisible wolf’s!”
I have been saying for so long that: When the territory is not defended by the good ones, the bad ones make “just” the victory of injustice.
We must avoid such absurdity to happen, since the great lesson is that we keep ourselves vigilant and active, in tune with our dedicated Guardian Angels, opposing the misgoverned thoughts so we do not fall in their hands. After all, we are what we think, say, and do.
Therefore, my advice is to read and continuously analyze the Seven Campaigns of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit*1 launched by Alziro Zarur:
1 — Good Thoughts
2 — Good Words
3 — Good Deeds
4 — Good News
5 — Good Entertainment
6 — Good Neighborhood
7 — Worldwide Good Will
*¹ The Seven Campaigns of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit — Alziro Zarur brought to this world the 21 Initiation Keys of the Divine Religion, made up of Seven Campaigns, Seven Commands, and Seven Crusades. They can be found in volume 1 of Sagradas Diretrizes Espirituais da Religião de Deus, do Cristo e do Espírito Santo [Sacred Spiritual Guidelines of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit] (1987), by Paiva Netto.
