The Spiritual World is not an abstraction. It is invisible, but it exists, affirms José de Paiva Netto, President-Preacher of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit.
In many areas of human knowledge, we find extensive and compelling evidence on this topic.
From the Invisible World to the Big Screen
The famous movie Ghost (Jerry Zucker, 1990) tells the romantic story of Molly (Demi Moore) and Sam (Patrick Swayze, 1952-2009). In the story he is murdered but she can still feel his presence for some time until his Spirit finally goes to its new home in Heaven, Paradise, the Spiritual World, the Ethereal, or any other name used to talk about the same place. The film also stars the medium Oda Mae (Whoopi Goldberg).
In addition to being a box office success, Ghost was nominated for five Academy Awards, winning two of them.
But the topic of Spirituality is not something new in Hollywood. Somewhere in Time (Jeannot Szwarc, 1980) was one of the first movies in this category. Between the 20th and 21st centuries, this segment gained strength and popularity with What Dreams May Come (Vincent Ward, 1998), the touching Dragonfly (Tom Shadyac, 2002), and the bold representation of reincarnation in Yesterday’s Children (Marcus Cole, 2000), a novel based on true events of Jenny Cockell’s life.
Spiritual Life According to Several Beliefs
Although it is usually associated with Religion, spiritual life is always a recurrent subject in eastern and western cultures.
Millennia ago, Egyptians already believed in life after death with their ancient rituals. Hindus celebrate their avatars in the development of a universal consciousness. Catholics pray to saints. Protestants also praise the other side of existence addressing the stories of Angels as registered in the Holy Bible. Jews, Buddhists, and so many other people from different religious creeds have, at some point, made reference to something different from what the physical sense calls real. All of this sustained by Faith.
A curious passage from the Holy Scriptures reveals the relationship with the metaphysical world. Even though King Saul forbade the communication with the “dead,” he overruled this in order to benefit during a battle against the Philistines by consulting the Spirit of the Prophet Samuel through a medium from the city of Endor (First Book of Samuel 28, in its entirety).
Jesus, the Ecumenical Christ, the Divine Statesman, in His first visible visit to the planet, already made it clear to us about the reality of the eternity of Life:
“My Father’s House has many rooms; if that were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” (The Gospel according to John 14:2)
Spiritual Revolution Conducted by the Divine Religion
The conscious communication with the Higher Spiritual World has been taking place since the establishment of the Good Will Organizations. When our late Brother Alziro Zarur (1914-1979) founded the LGW on January 1, 1950, he promptly announced in 1953, in the press in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that in the near future a great group of disincarnated beings who work in the service of Jesus would carry out what he called the World Revolution of Spirits.
On January 6, 1992, José de Paiva Netto, Zarur’s successor and his former secretary for nearly a quarter of a century, began its practical activities when, in the media of the Divine Religion (radio, TV, the Internet, and publications), he started broadcasting the messages of disincarnated Brothers and Sisters, like Dr. Bezerra de Menezes (spiritual coordinator), Emmanuel, André Luiz, Meimei, and Flexa Dourada, who are active in this great ecumenical spiritual revolution. Their manifestations contribute to the spiritual educational purpose of the Religion of the Third Millennium.
Under the command of its President-Preacher, Brother José de Paiva Netto, the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit is a permanent “School of Spiritual Initiation with open doors.” What is taught is never lost, but renewed; and it illuminates successive generations.
With this understanding in mind, we present an important message from Brother Dr. Bezerra de Menezes, by way of the psychophony of the Legionnaire Medium, Chico Periotto, from February 23, 2002 (Saturday), in the Ecumenical Church of the Religion of the Third Millennium in São Paulo, Brazil.
