The New Message Prophecy
"Humanity is about to face its greatest trial and its most difficult challenges."
"The world is entering a more difficult and prolonged challenge and set of circumstances." 
"A new world, a new reality, the encounter with life in the universe, an encounter that will change and determine the future and destiny of humanity."
"There are Great Waves of change coming to humanity. Many of these have been generated as a result of human activity and behavior in the world, and some of them are the result of humanity’s overall evolution."
"The decisions made in the next two decades will determine the outcome of what kind of journey the human family will have to take in the future."
"The Great Waves of change are all converging at the same time, creating cross-currents and a complexity of events that no one can predict accurately. Climate will affect food production. Food production will affect political and economic instability. Political instability will affect energy production and distribution. Poor living conditions will foster disease and even pandemics. Water resources will affect vast populations, forcing mass migrations, creating ever greater political-economic tensions and instability. If this goes unchecked, then you are facing a different kind of human conflict. You are facing wars of desperation, which are unlike the conflicts that humanity has engaged in the past."

"Increasingly there will be friction all around you and friction all around the world as human communities are stressed to a breaking point; as ancient animosities now begin to overflow and engulf nations and regions; as the competition for the remaining resources becomes fierce and dangerous, producing conflict and aggravation on a scale never seen before." 
“With the world’s resources diminishing and ever growing numbers of people drinking from a slowly shrinking well, the risk of competition, conflict and war is increasing. Groups and nations that are already in contention with one another will find it difficult to resist the temptation to claim those resources that they need for their own peoples." 
"You will see immense suffering around you, immense travail. People will act foolishly in the face of the Great Waves of change. They will elect dangerous officials. They will give themselves to dangerous pursuits. They will take sides against others. They will retreat into fear and defensiveness. You will see this everywhere, in all nations." 
"You will have brief periods of resurgence and renewal, but they will be brief, you see, because people have not faced the reality that they are living in a declining world."
"For you must know that the human need will grow far greater in the future. Everyone will become poorer, and many will be destitute. You must have the strength here not only to take care of yourself but to take care of others as well"
"The cities will become so filled with people that it will be very difficult to provide food and water for them, even in the well-established countries, even in the countries where there is greater affluence. " 
"How will you feed the peoples of the world when the world loses 30% of its agriculture, which is what you are really facing, you see." 
“Will the wealthy nations of the world insist that their lifestyle must be preserved and therefore enter into competition and conflict with one another, further degrading the rest of the world, robbing the poorer people of the world of their own ability to sustain themselves so that some grand or indulgent lifestyle can be maintained in the wealthy nations? If humanity chooses this path, it will enter a period of prolonged conflict and permanent decline. Instead of preserving and distributing the remaining resources and generating the ability to adapt to a new world condition, humanity will destroy what is left, leaving itself poor and bereft, with immense loss of human life and with very grim and grave prospects for the future.” 
"There are still resources in the world, yes, but they will be harder to find, and there will be more competition for them."
"At this threshold, humanity is facing the prospect of living in a world of diminishing resources, facing the impacts of environmental destruction, of global warming, of violent weather, of pandemic disease and Intervention from forces beyond the world who are seeking to take advantage of human weakness and conflict for their own purposes." 
"As resources diminish, nations will become more protective of what they have." 
"There will be less available for nations around the world to purchase these resources, resources here, not merely industrial materials, but food, the availability of water, medicines, things that are fundamental to the wellbeing of people everywhere.” 
"Social upheaval, revolution, wars over resource acquisition, natural disasters, economic instability, nations falling into debt and financial collapse—this is all part of your future, you see."
"Many people will perish in the future, either through poverty and oppression or through ignorance and foolishness. Nations will be tempted to go to war with each other over the remaining resources, which will be ever more difficult to secure. And the grievances of humanity, so long standing, will flare here and there and everywhere."
"With the world’s resources diminishing and ever growing numbers of people drinking from a slowly shrinking well the risk of competition, conflict and war is increasing. Groups and nations that are already in contention with one another will find it difficult to resist the temptation to claim those resources that they need for their own peoples. As resources diminish nations will become more protective of what they have. And there will be less available for nations around the world to purchase these resources, resources here, not merely industrial materials, but food, the availability of water, medicines, things that are fundamental to the wellbeing of people everywhere."
"Will the wealthy nations of the world insist that their lifestyle must be preserved and therefore enter into competition and conflict with one another, further degrading the rest of the world, robbing the poorer people of the world of their own ability to sustain themselves so that some grand or indulgent lifestyle can be maintained in the wealthy nations? If humanity chooses this path, it will enter a period of prolonged conflict and permanent decline. Instead of preserving and distributing the remaining resources and generating the ability to adapt to a new world condition, humanity will destroy what is left, leaving itself poor and bereft, with immense loss of human life and with very grim and grave prospects for the future." 
"War may be avoided, but it cannot be prevented."
Without a "greater understanding, humanity will fight and compete and struggle with itself. Its divisions will become sharper. Its wars will become more embittered and prolonged. It will be group against group, religion against religion, nation against nation. And here you cannot blame one government or one leader, for everyone will be responsible." 
"You will see in the next decade tremendous discord as tribal societies, ethnic groups and people of different religious persuasions clash with one another, competing for their own identity, which is rapidly being changed. Some of the events to come will be very appalling; some will be magnificent and encouraging."
"There will be a great risk of pandemic illness that will arise out of deteriorating conditions, particularly in large urban areas. Many people may perish. It will be an immense and traumatic set of events."
"You are entering a time of restraint, a time for saving, a time when your economy will require you to be far more careful with your resources."
"This will be a time of restraint and contraction, a time of great uncertainty and instability."
"You are facing a world of environmental decline, violent weather, growing economic and political instability." 
"Humanity is entering a dangerous phase in its development, a phase where it will exhaust the world’s resources in many ways, leading to economic contraction and in some places complete collapse."
"The world is beginning to break down. Human civilization is beginning to break down. It will affect you and every person, rich or poor, in every country, in every corner of the world." 
"The economies of the nations will contract, as they are doing now, but more severely—leaving great percentages of the population in nations unemployed; requiring great assistance; overwhelming the financial resources of nations." 
"All those industries that are based upon travel and tourism will shrink or, in some cases, disappear altogether as people are unable to go abroad like that."
"Humanity has plundered the Earth so thoroughly that it cannot sustain such a great population as it has in the past, and great measures will have to be taken to re-organize civilization and to end war and conflict so that humanity may build a new foundation in a degraded and depleted world."
"There will be great human suffering in the future. Masses of people will have to relocate. There will be great shortages of food and fuel even in the wealthy nations. There will be a breakdown in civil order in large cities and some countries politically will collapse. It is really what you have been expecting, but it is greater than you have been expecting. Great Waves of change are largely the consequence of humanity’s misuse and mismanagement of the world’s resources." 
"In the years to come, people rich and poor, people of all religious persuasions, of all social orders and representing all personal interests, will be increasingly involved with one another. This will tend to neutralize the extreme tendencies of humanity and will create a more common sense of identity. Though cultural diversity will certainly continue as will individual expression, people will be forced to integrate with others in ways that they prefer and in ways that they do not prefer. There will be more people; there will be fewer resources; there will be less personal freedom, and there will be a larger general consensus upon which things must be decided. Here it is not merely a matter of what serves one group over another; it is what serves everyone, for common needs will grow and become far more intense."
"World government is inevitable. It will happen." 
"You now have the beginnings"... "of global government." 
"The great threshold that humanity is now just beginning to enter"... "will set group against group, nation against nation. Competition will now become very contentious. Nations will vie for who has access to valuable resources as they become diminished within their own countries. It will be a situation that will call for great restraint and the recognition that no nation can fail now without immense consequences for the whole world." 
"United humanity can survive and build a better future, but without this, humanity will decline. Civilization will decline, and even your technology, your science and your cleverness and ingenuity will not save you." 
“War will end when humanity realizes that its borders to space are unguarded and that its resources here on Earth are becoming dangerously depleted. It will take all nations to bond together to protect the world from intervention from the outside and from collapse on the inside. In this, there is only one choice, for the alternative is too terrible to contemplate.” 
"Old prejudices and lines of separation will be aggravated, but the pressing needs of the world and Intervention by aggressive races from the Greater Community will overshadow individual and local discord. This will force people to come together."
Freedom and restraint
"This is what you will be facing now in the decades to come—the loss of wealth, the loss of mobility, the loss of physical space, the loss of opportunity and ever-greater restraints imposed upon you by your own governments. This is what happens when you reach a point where you are overwhelming your world’s resources, where you have run out of room and where you are at risk of undermining your world’s ability to sustain you in the future." - Technology and the Different Paths to Stability
The Elderly and the Vulnerable
"Do not think in the future that the government or systems of care will provide for the elderly and that you will not have any responsibilities here."
"Those who are vulnerable in your community, children without parents, elderly people, people with disabilities—the government will not be able to take care of all these people."
Human migration and refugees
"There will be great human migration all over the world. Some of it will be normal, but most of it will have to be organized and agreed to between nations. If nations close their doors to the displaced peoples, it will be a tragedy never seen before. And this tragedy will despoil the world in war and conflict." 
"There will be great human migrations as the arid regions of the world lose their ability to produce food, as water resources become scarce and as conflict arises between nations, and groups within nations, over who will have access to the remaining resources. And however masked these conflicts may be under the guise of religion and politics, it will be a struggle for resources primarily." 
"What will happen to cities when the glaciers that provide all of their water resources evaporate over the years? There will be great human migrations in the future because people have fled their homelands. Greater than any world war or human conflict will this human migration will this be." 
"What will happen to all the people who must leave, even in the wealthy nations and their cities and their coastlines? Where will they go? What will they do, they, along with you and your recent ancestors, who have changed the climate of the world? As the icecaps melt, as the glaciers melt, as water becomes ever more precious and drought grows worldwide, these are the things that must be mitigated now while you still have a chance to do so. Do not think there are other problems that are more significant than this. Do not discount this." 
Great Waves of change
"Humanity has disrupted the world so sufficiently that now you are facing a different kind of world—a new world, a world of different dimensions, a world that will be quite new to your experience in so many ways, a world with a new climate, a world of diminishing resources, a world of growing economic and political upheaval and conflict, a world of greater stress and uncertainty, a world of erupting situations and natural catastrophes, a world where your food production will decline with a growing and changing climate. It is a world that people are not prepared for, for people still think the future will be like the past. They assume the world will always be as they have expected it to be. They have invested themselves and their lives in the world being a certain way, but it is now changed. It is a different world, a new world." 
"The need will grow in the world. The human family will come under greater duress. The calling will sound forth for many people to awaken from their sleep and their dreams of self-fulfillment—called into action and with it a deeper memory and sense of responsibility to the world."
"While everything appears to be normal in these days, Great Waves of change are coming to the world—change on a level never seen before, change that will affect every person in the world. Greater than the world wars, it will be. Greater than the great pandemics of the past will it be. Great Waves of change, as humanity has plundered the world and has destroyed your natural inheritance to such a great degree that the world will change now, becoming a more difficult place for the human family." 
"It is really now a race to save human civilization from collapse and ruin. This is something that any person can see once they are alerted to the Great Waves of change, once they begin to listen to the sounds of the world and see the signs that the world is producing." 
Sea level rise
"The seas will rise. Within the next century and a half, they will rise over a hundred feet. Where are you going to live? What will happen to your ports and cities and your prime farmland? What will happen to the deltas of the world and the millions who live there? Who will take them in when they must flee their nation, unable to survive there any longer? It is this you must consider. Look at a map of the world and see what will be lost. The majority of the major cities of the world will be flooded and will not be able to be protected…” 
Weather and climate
"The world will change to a new kind of balance, but it will not be a balance that will be favorable to the human family." 
"The world will become warmer. Lands will open up, but you will not be able to grow much food on them. And violent weather will be a problem everywhere—depleting nations’ resources, creating catastrophes one after another." 
The Greater Community
"Your isolation is over, and you will never have it again."
"Humanity’s destiny was always to emerge into a Greater Community of intelligent life. This is inevitable and occurs in all worlds where intelligent life has been seeded and has developed. Eventually, you would have come to realize that you lived within a Greater Community. And, eventually, you would have found that you were not alone in your own world, that visitation was occurring and that you would have to learn to contend with divergent races, forces, beliefs and attitudes that are prevalent in the Greater Community in which you live." 
"The world's emergence into the Greater Community is a great challenge in and of itself, but what will be more burdensome will be human response or lack of it. [If you cannot address the challenges before you], humanity will slowly sink under the weight of its own conflicts, its own indulgences and its own violence. Everything will deteriorate--nations,cultures, cities. Everything will deteriorate. Everyone will become poorer and more desperate." 
Inevitability of crisis
"Of course, you would affect the world in such a way that the world would respond not to your benefit. Of course, you would hit a crisis point." 
"All of this is inevitable, you see, given humanity’s attitudes, its use of the world and humanity’s relations between nations. Of course, you would reach a point of saturation."
"People will say, 'Well, I am very hopeful things will turn out well.' Perhaps they will say, 'Well, we will meet these challenges with new technology.' Perhaps they will say, 'We have been through difficult times before, and we will endure and emerge successful here.' But these are all evaluations of a primary experience that should not in any case be discounted. If people listened to their experiences more than their ideas, they would have a truer sense of what is coming over the horizon. And they would have a truer sense of how they are really responding." 
"If you are aware of change and the need to prepare, but you delay this preparation, then your choices become more limited and more costly. You do not want to wait to when everyone becomes aware because then it will be panic and very little will be available to help you. Before you can help others, you must secure your position. Before you can help those in need, you must become strong and secure in your position. You cannot achieve ultimate security because that is not possible in the world, but you must have a stronger position. If you live twenty miles outside of a town and there are shortages of fuel, you will be stranded. If those conditions continue, you will be a refugee." 
Sanity in the midst of crisis
"If problems are great, the solutions will be great, the actions will be great, and the individuals who undertake them will be great. Your race needs greatness now because of what it faces. It faces the need to repair its world and to unite its people. It faces competition from the Greater Community. And it faces a requirement to evolve spiritually and psychologically in order to become citizens of the world and to become one race, in order to participate in the Greater Community."
"Those who prepare for the future will be able to avoid its dangers and its dilemmas to a very great degree. Those who do not prepare will be extremely vulnerable and will have few choices when the great impacts occur in their lives. But preparation means that you must be willing to think independently, to think beyond your insecurity, to think with determination and with courage and with as much objectivity as you can muster. You cannot be panicking and make wise decisions. You cannot be governed by fear and make wise decisions. Perhaps after a period of shock, awe and dismay, you will finally settle in to a more stable and more objective perspective." 
"Therefore, you do the work that Knowledge has given you to do. You do it with your heart and soul and you practice tolerance, restraint and compassion with the world and you realize through the Revelation God has given what is really confronting the human family—through the Great Waves of Change that are coming and to the presence of forces from the Greater Community who are here. Then you will realize that no political agenda is going to resolve everything. No religious belief is going to resolve everything. No ideology is going to solve what humanity must face."
"The truth is that many people are not feeling very good in the moment. They are not feeling very good about their circumstances. They are not feeling very good about the compromises that they have made. They are not feeling very good about their own experiences and activities. They are not feeling very good about their prospects for the future. And they are not feeling very good about what they see and feel about their future." 
"If you become aware of great change and do nothing, your anxiety will increase and so will your sense of powerlessness. You will be held in place, hoping that someone will take care of these problems, hoping for a miracle from God because if awareness does not lead to action, it leads to a sense of powerlessness and depression. If the people standing on the beach waiting for the great waves to come think to themselves, 'Maybe I should get to higher ground?' and they do not move, they are lost." 
"The world has been violated. And thus the world will create retribution, but it will not be God’s retribution. It will be the retribution that humanity has created for itself and the retribution born of errors."
"You will have to pay for the sins of the past, as your children will have to pay for the sins of the present." 
"At this moment, people are selling their children’s future away. They are creating a nightmarish future for their children by the way that they live, what they consume, what they believe and what they assume to be true, based upon their own habits and personal preference." 
The need for Revelation
"God knows what is coming over the horizon and seeks to warn you, bless you and prepare you."
"Without a New Revelation, humanity will break down into crisis after crisis after crisis as food, water and energy become more scarce and difficult to find, leading to wars of desperation, leading to violence on a scale never seen in the world before."
