This webpage is centered on spirituality, the God-given ability for a human to act love towards humanity and nature. The more focus of the open letters is for the group of people that God is giving high concern, the poor and the weak (God’s flock, lambs and sheep, a metaphor for the poor). Nowadays, God’s flock, the poor, who comprise of more than half of world population are overlooked and abandoned by the rich and the powerful, in which, churchmen are part of them who used to be good as preachers and missionaries but not as good spiritual doers. The following are some of Bible verses suggesting of teaching and commands that they mostly fail to obey:

James 2:15-17

1 John 3:16-18

Matthew 23:3

Luke 16:13, Matthew 6:24

This is the tragedy when the priests call themselves as servants of God and even worse is to assert to be a servant of the servants of God but failed to act as claimed. Fortunately, we have Pope Francis reiterating for the priests to mingle with the sheep and to serve as stated in the internet news as follows;

  • “God anointed his servants so they would be there for others, serving “the poor, prisoners, the sick, for those who are sorrowing and alone,” the pope said standing at a lectern.” - By Carol Glatz (Catholic News Service)

The above is congruent of what Jesus and his disciples taught about attaining eternal life as expressed in the following Bible verses;

  • Matthew 25:31-46 (The "Sheep and the "Goat")
  • Matthew 19:16-21 (The rich man)
  • Luke 10:25-37 (The Good Samaritan)
  • Luke 16:19-31 (Lazarus Story)
  • James 2:14-17 (Faith with works)

What is happening is different. Instead of focusing on the commands and teachings stated above, the priests and religious leaders spent the huge amount of energy, time, and money on many things to promote the teacher Jesus but not Jesus' commands and teaching. Hereunder are some examples;

  • Splendid man-made churches with its towers reaching the sky. (Acts 17:24, 1 Cor. 3:16-17, Matthew 18:20)
  • Numerous statues of Jesus even built on top of the mountains. (Jeremiah 10:14, Exodus 20:4)
  • Huge human cross as in Book of Guinness (Acts 17:25)
  • Carrying wooden cross, especially during Lent (Luke 9:23, James 2:15-17)

So, with the chaotic world having God’s flock neglected by the few (the rich and powerful), the New Revelation has occurred which I named as 21st Century Divine Revelation (21CDR, 2004-2016), the essence is Spirituality: for us to love and care for humanity and nature. In this modern generation, spirituality is overshadowed by the race of amassing wealth especially the 1 % of the world population who hold half of the economic resources. The enormous ownership of the wealth of the world by the fewer people is against God’s will (Galatians 3:28, Acts 4:32-35). Instead of attaining unity through love as Jesus prayed (John 17:20-23) and Apostle Paul appealed (1 Corinthians 1:10), the people are increasingly disunited producing high risk of world destruction (Mat. 12:25), as already been apparent when the world experienced series and various calamities and civil wars..

The succeeding webpages are Open Letters that may serve to enlighten the public, authorities, business people, and the churchmen (Luke 4:18) to come and work together in saving the planet from untimely destruction.
