The Bomb That Individuals Nowadays Carry
Upon first glance this title may thought to be rather intimidating, but as it introduces a frank and honest topic, it deserves serious consideration. My followers are well aware of this issue, but when those individuals who appear to be living and working in perfect health are given careful examination, their bodies are without exception completely full of solidified medicinal toxins. When the solidified medicinal toxins in one of the areas of their bodies happen to start to dissolve, thinking the process “a disease,” those afflicted immediately go to see a medical doctor. The doctor will look the individual over and say to the effect that the condition is serious. It may not appear to be serious at present, but depending on circumstances, it could be the beginning of a grave illness, and right away the medical practitioner starts treatments that solidify the areas back to the way they were before purification started. The therapies for solidifying are various, including the pharmaceutical. We are indeed living in a tremendous world, because it is believed that methods that solidify the most completely are the most progressive therapies.
In such a way, people nowadays continue to accumulate toxins within their bodies, and because these toxins continue to steadily solidify, it appears that those who are firm and plump are the healthiest, but in truth, these individuals are in a dangerous condition. Previously, I joked that lumps of pus should be thought to be haughtily arguing. Of course, not only is this statement true even now, the situation is gradually worsening. Nothing gets sicker more easily than human beings nowadays, so serious items that are supposed to be kept in mind are many, such as hygiene, taking care not to catch a cold, restraining from drinking too much and overeating, eating “nutritious” food, not getting chilled, not becoming fatigued, getting enough sleep, washing hands, and gargling. The human body is treated as a broken object. Frankly speaking, our age could be called one of terror. It would be all right if circumstances simply went on as they have, but they will not. They will not because of the change in the spiritual world. The change means that gradually toxins will not solidify anymore, and no matter what new treatments or medicines are developed, the power to dissolve will strengthen, so it is as clear as day that one after another individuals will die. However, most readers of this essay, will think this statement preposterous and may likely say there should be a limit to threats. Christ has already prophesized this occurrence two thousand years ago, that is, the end of the world, and the end will occur as I just described.
Those who do not want to believe this prophecy do not have to believe it, but there will be no going back once you face your own hour of death, even as you remember how you had been informed and no matter how much you may repent and regret how foolish you were. Therefore, if you mean to be saved, now is the time. In this case, what should you do? It is not difficult at all. Since your life will be in danger when your toxins start dissolving all at once, you will be helped if you start to pay down this debt of toxins. This process is accomplished by the Johrei therapy of World Messianity. As it is so simple, it might be difficult to believe, but to the extent that it is difficult to believe, it has that much worth. But, as purification in the spiritual world is growing stronger day by day, medical treatment will be unable to solidify the human body. There is not one moment to lose in awakening to this danger and coming to World Messianity. Thus, to put what I have written in one succinct statement, people nowadays truly carry around a bomb of toxins.
