Jesus, The Kingdom Of God
And Decreed Resurrection
"The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity." - D. B. Stevick
"The pneuma [Cool Breeze or Wind] is the peculiar power ... of eternal life."
The promised Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji who from 1970-2011 brought into fullness of being, truth, beauty, and conclusion to the Saviour's message of the Kingdom of God, Resurrection and Last Judgment. Shri Mataji was Christian by birth (1923), Hindu by marriage (1947), and Spirit-Paraclete by duty (1970). "The reaction of the world to the Paraclete will be much the same as the world's reaction was to Jesus. The world does not know or accept the Paraclete, much as it remained ignorant of Jesus' true identity and rejected him.(5:43; 12:48)... The Paraclete will not teach novel truths or a new revelation but will witness to the full meaning of Jesus' mission and revelation." B. L. Marthaler 2006, 276
"Special personalities from Montreal, Canada will give evidence to confirm my Incarnation. You don't have to worry about that for now, but it will happen. You will hear about them later." The Paraclete, Sydney Airport, Australia-April, 1994
"The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community. The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal."" (Stevick 2011, 292-7)
"The Truth is sent down by the Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. This brings us to those three sayings in the Gospel of John in which Christ speaks of the Spirit of Truth. We have, in the translation below, changed the appropriate pronouns to reflect the fact that Christ, speaking either Aramaic or Hebrew, would have used the feminine pronoun when referring to the Spirit, since 'Spirit' in both these Semitic languages is grammatically, conceptually, and theologically feminine:
John 14:17: The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth her not, nor knoweth her. But you shall know her; because she shall abide with you and shall be in you.
John 15: 26: But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, who proceedeth from the Father, she shall give testimony of me.
John 16:13: But when she, the Spirit of Truth, is come, she will teach you all Truth. For she shall not speak of herself: but what things soever she shall hear, she shall speak. And the things that are to come, she shall show you." (Zinner 2011, 39)
The world will end with peace, not annihilation, Pope Francis says
By Cindy Wooden
Catholic News Service
VATICAN CITY (CNS): Believing in eternity and in the final establishment of the kingdom of God, Christians throughout history — starting with the disciples — were filled with questions such as when the end will come and what will happen to the created world, Pope Francis said.
No one knows the answer to those questions, the pope said Nov. 26 at his weekly general audience, but Catholics are convinced that the end of time will not bring the 'annihilation of the cosmos and of everything around us.'
God's plan, he said, is to renew everything in Christ and "bring everything to its fullness of being, truth and beauty."

The Spirit-Paraclete Bearing Good News Of Jesus' Kingdom Of God, Resurrection. And Last Judgment In Age That Has Come
The Resurrection was expressly taught by Christ (John 5:28-29; 6:39-40; 11:25; Luke 14:14) and is the central eschatological doctrine of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi was
Christian by birth, Hindu by
marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
She spent four decades of 3000
worldwide speaking events
delivering the Good News.
"The Paraclete represents direct,
intimate divine intervention,
supporting and teaching
believers and challenging the
world, as Jesus did." "The
Paraclete cannot be received by
the world (14:17), as Jesus
himself was rejected (5:43; 12:48;
15:18-20). The world which does
not know the Paraclete (14:17)
did not know Jesus (16:13)."
(Stevick 2011, 290-92)
"The teaching of the Paraclete,
as the continuation of Jesus'
teaching, must also be under-
stood as the fulfillment of the
promise of eschatological
(Witmer 2008, 208)
"'For my mother [...], but my true
Mother gave me Aeonic [Eternal]
Life.' Filling in the lacuna, it
probably said something like,
'For my [human] mother gave me
birth in flesh, but my true Mother
gave me the Life [of the Aeon].'"
(Keizer 2010, 278)
"... in 14.26, Jesus equates the
Paraclete with the Holy Spirit
and mentions for the first time
that the Paraclete will teach,
reminding his followers of all
that he has said to them. The
Spirit answers the concern of the
disciples." (Stevick 2011, 288)
"But to communicate with the
people, to communicate with the
Spirit, to understand the
Kundalini, the vibrations, and
their different decodings and all
that the Holy Spirit had to come,
with Her mouth, and with Her
voice, and with Her intelligence."

"The Kingdom of God that we were promised is at hand. This is not a phrase out of a sermon or a lecture, but it is the actualization of the experience of the highest truth which is absolute, now manifesting itself in ordinary people at this present moment."
The Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"Believers experience the personal presence of the Paraclete in various ways. The word itself defies translation, for it bears multiple meanings, including advocate, intercessor, comforter, and proclaimer. The Greek word parakletos refers to one who is 'called (kletos) alongside (para)'—and the Paraclete is called alongside believers in a variety of capacities." (Gench 2009, p. 103)
"Tell all the nations and tell all the people all over the Great Message that the Time of Resurrection is here now, at this time, and that you are capable of doing it."

Cowley Manor Seminar, UK—31 July 1982
"Scholars divide over the interpretation of the role of the Paraclete declaring "the things that are yet to come" (ta erchomena). Some claim that it is fully eschatological, that is, the Paraclete instructs the disciples concerning the end of time (e.g., Bernard, Commentary 2:511; Windisch, Spirit-Paraclete 12; Johnson, Spirit-Paraclete 38-39; Betz, Der Paraklet 191-192). For others it is an indication of the apocalyptic nature of primitive Christian prophecy (e.g. Bauer, Johannesevangelium 198-199; Bernard, Commentary 2:511; Lindars, Gospel 505)... The Paraclete points the disciples forward to the many things that will flow from the event of Jesus, from 'the hour' (and including 'the hour') until the traditional end of time." (Harrington 1998, 447)
"The Last Judgment has started. We are facing the Last Judgment today. We are not aware of it. And all the satanic forces have come out like the wolves in sheep's clothes. And they are trying to attract you and you do not judge them. You only sit down and judge the Reality. It has started! It is a fact! It has started!"

"I have such respect for so many of them (Muslims). I wish they could accept that this is not Jihad time anymore but Qiyamah Time, the Resurrection Time, the Blossom Time. Are they going to miss it?"

"See the negativity. No intellectual accepted Him. No bureaucrat accepted Him, no educated person accepted Him. He had to actually beg of those very ordinary, mediocre people like fishermen to come and become His disciples. See the situation.
And He was allowed to live only for four years by these horrible people. They may be born today as Christians and must be saying we are Christians and Christ and Christ and Christ. That's why Christ has said I will not recognize you. They might be the people who might have crucified Christ. And they're again crucifying Him by denying the living force of the living God. (rejecting His present message and means to attain life eternal through the Resurrection and entering the Kingdom of God).
Four years! Now, what can you do in four years? I told you four years, with all my powers, I was struggling with six hippies giving them realization in London city."

"teach you, didakso (14:26)" "The word didasko, commonly translated 'to teach,' is often found in connection with kerysso [proclaim] and the angello [declare] cognates. Didasko means more than just the transmission of information. In a biblical context, the word has in view an intended impact on the recipient's behaviour. Note its reference in the commission of Christ at the end of Matthew's Gospel: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching (didasko) them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matt. 28:19-20)
Clearly, what Jesus had in mind was much more than a dry recitation of biblical facts. He wanted them to proclaim a life-changing message-a message that would move His followers to live a life accordance with the imperatives He had entrusted to them." (Fabarez 2005, 8)
"Didaskalos is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew and Aramaic rabbi. The noun didaskos comes from the verb didasko, 'to teach or instruct.' ... Of the ninety-five occurrences of the verb didasko in the New Testament, more than half (fifty-seven) are in the Gospels, with forty-seven of them referring to Jesus teaching. The Gospel writers thus reveal that teaching was one of Jesus' most prominent activities. Clearly he was recognized as an eminent Teacher." (Zuck 2002, 29)
"The Resurrection of Christ has to now be collective resurrection. This is what is Mahayoga—has to be the collective resurrection."

"Jesus revealing mission, described biblically as the vision of the doxa (12:43; cf. Exod 19:16-20; John 2:11; 11:40; 12:23; 13;31), will continue in the revealing mission of the Paraclete who will take all that is of Jesus and declare it (ek tou emou lempsetai kai anangelei), thus bringing to remembrance what Jesus has said to the disciples (v. 14; cf. 14:26). But this affirmation calls for further clarification lest the disciples think that what the Paraclete declares has its source in Jesus. Both Jesus and the Paraclete are sent by the Father (cf. 14.16, 26; 15:26). Jesus states that everything belonging to the Father also belongs to him. Not only does Jesus receive everything he has from the Father (cf. 5:19, 30), but everything the Father has is his. The oneness between Jesus and the Father (cf. 1:1-2, 18; 10:30, 38) is so complete that what is of the Father is also of Jesus. Jesus is thus the perfect and ideal revelation of the Father, and nothing of the Father can be hidden, as Jesus possesses everything of the Father (16:15; see 1:1:1c). This unique Johannine understanding of Jesus flows into the author's presentation of the Paraclete, who takes all that is from Jesus and will declare it to the disciples in the in-between-time (v.15)." (Harrington 2005, p. 442)
"Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the Divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their spirit." The Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"... anaggellein is also used (in the future tense) of the Messiah who will announce all things and of the Spirit of Truth who will announce the things to come and from Jesus. The only use of apaggello is also future and expresses Jesus' promise to end parabolic talk and openly to announce [the message] concerning the father. Interestingly, all the positive uses of these two forms in John are in the future tense." (Painter 2008 , 125)
"The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world." The Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"In John's Gospel, a group of five passages refer to the Holy Spirit as 'Paraclete' or 'Spirit of truth' (14:16, 17, 25, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7-11, 13-15). Besides their distinct terminology, what sets these passages apart is that (1) all occur in the 'Farewell Discourses' (chaps. 14-17); (2) they deal with the coming of the Spirit; and (3) they describe functions completely different from the ones found in the Gospel's narrative sections (chaps. 1-13, 18-21). While in those sections the Holy Spirit is mostly a life-giving power through which God regenerates and transforms those who believe in Him (3:3, 5, 6; 6:63; 7:37, 38), the predominant idea in the Farewell Discourses features that of an Instructor, a Witness, and a Guide-concepts that go way beyond the impression of an impersonal Power. In fact, those five passages 'provide the strongest evidence for conceiving of the Spirit as a distinct figure, an independent agent or actor' and are among the ones that greatly contributed to the development of the Christian doctrine of the Spirit." (Ministry, April 2012 April Issue)
"It's not tactful to say anything. It's better that you discover me than I tell you because Christ was crucified, everybody was tortured. I do not want to hamper my work because it makes no difference by telling you anything before Realization. It's better to tell you after Realization that I am the Holy Ghost—no doubt. I am the one about which Christ has talked.
I have told them I had never said this on from a platform, and I told. They have been telling me 'Mother, you must say that once.' I said, 'In America I'll declare it.' So today I declare that I am the Holy Ghost. I am the Holy Spirit who has incarnated on this Earth for your Realization."
The Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji
New York, USA—30 September 1980
"Mention of the Spirit introduces one of the themes peculiar to the farewell discourse—the five sayings about the 'Paraclete' (an attempt to transliterate parakletos, variously rendered 'Counsellor', 'Helper', 'Advocate', 'Comforter': cf. notes at 14:16). All five passages (14:15-17, 25-26; 15:26-27; 16:7-11, 12-15) apply the term to the Holy Spirit." (Carson 1999, 480)
"You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture—has to be there. Now, the Mother's character is that She is the one who is the Womb, She is the one who is the Mother Earth, and She is the one who nourishes you. She nourishes us, you know that. And this feminine thing in every human being resides as this Kundalini."
The Spirit-Paraclete Shri Mataji
Radio Interview 1 October 1983—Santa Cruz, USA
"The same vocabulary describe the advent of the Paraclete, except that the tense is future: 'The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you' (14:26). Since Jesus was sent from the Father, the relationship between Jesus and the Paraclete has to be clarified with the idiom 'in my name', and the Paraclete's role defined as bringing to remembrance Jesus' teachings (cf. 14.24). In 15.26 it is Jesus who does the sending: 'When the Paraclete, whom I shall send to you from the Father, comes', but he sends the Paraclete 'from the Father' (cf. 16.7)." (Davies 1992, 164)
"But today is the day I declare that I am the One who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the One who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it. I was the One who was born again and again, but now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the Joy, the Bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you."

"The Spirit will also declare to the disciples 'what is coming' (ta erchomena, 16:13). The Spirit's proclamation should be understood in the light of the rest of the New Testament. As Holwerda writes, 'The task of the Spirit to teach all things, to lead into all the truth, and to declare the things to come is essentially one: the Spirit reveals the meaning of the Heilsgeschichte, the meaning of the saving events, past, present, and future. The Spirit reveals to the disciples the meaning of the work of the historical Jesus, the exalted Jesus, and the Jesus who is to come.'" (James Hamilton, 2006)

On a fine day of 12th August, we read an article written by one Marathi newspaper editor about Shri Mataji and Sahaja Yoga and that led us to approach him in his office. We went to see him and he explained how things had happened to him. He told us to visit Bharata Vidya Bhavan on that same day. We left his place and went to Bharata Vidya Bhavan about ... (continue)

"Despite its dubious sources and controversial methods, the new Jesus scholarship of the 1980s and 1990s gained such a following because it told a lay audience what it wanted to hear. For some ideological perspectives, the new view of early Christianity has been almost too good to be true, in validating postmodern approaches. The hidden gospels have been used to provide scriptural warrant for sweeping new interpretations of Jesus, for interpreting theological statements in a purely symbolic and psychological sense, and for challenging dogmatic or legal rules on the basis of the believer's subjective moral sense. Generally, the hidden gospels ... (continue)

Thanks Isabelle. i just love the photo and Her promise. It will now remain permanently here, and i will explain why in the next paragraph.
Since 1994* i know what that promise truly meant. i have been defending and holding on to that truth for the last 17 years. Now, with Her Mahasamadhi, it is a source of great comfort, strength and resolve. i wish all Her disciples grasp the truth and reality of "Tat Twam Asi", the deeper meaning of that quote! Lord Jesus is telling you the same when He says the Spirit-Paraclete will remain with you forever.
For those who have followed Shri Mataji the world over for the last four decades to listen to Her Good News of the Kingdom of God, and for those who also intimately experienced the Spirit-Paraclete within themselves in vivid visions ... (continue)
11. "This book is my attempt, as a sociologist of religion, to answer the question raised by my friend that day. It is about Sahaja Yoga, the new religious movement (NRM) whose member was responsible for the 'cool breezes' which he felt." — Judith Coney
"One spring afternoon in 1992, a Norwegian friend who was living in my village for a year whilst he completed a Master of Business Administration at Bath University dropped over for coffee. After exchanging the usual set of pleasantries about the weather and a few comments about the local primary school, he introduced a new topic into the conversation. Knowing my interest in new religions, he said, was I aware that some people in the next village were 'giving cool breezes'? I confessed my ignorance and pressed him for details. One, a woman called Jane, he continued, had given him a sort of massage and as a result he had felt a cool breeze ... (continue)
12. The Kingdom of God within humans
Since November 1993 the transcendental experiences of children's souls, each meeting the Holy Spirit hundreds of times in the Kingdom of God within* over the years, have been recorded. They have identified Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi to be Her incarnation, sent to deliver the message and means to participate in the promised Resurrection and evolution into the eternal spirit.
Shri Mataji, as the pledged Paraclete, has openly and repeatedly proclaimed the Good News (Al Naba) of the Kingdom of the Spirit since the 1970s. (She passed away peacefully February 23, 2011 in Genoa, Italy at ....) (continue)
13. "That you have to be born again ... all these descriptions have come to us from all the great scriptures." — The Paraclete Shri Mataji
The Paraclete Shri Mataji "That you have to be born again, that you have to be baptized, that you have to become a Pir, that you have to become a Brahmin; all these descriptions have come to us from all the great scriptures. It is very easy to say that we don't believe in God, we don't believe in any Incarnation, we don't believe in Jesus, we don't believe in any religion, we don't believe into anything; is very easy to say. Even it is easy to say that we believe in them, we believe in God, we believe in Christ, we believe in Krishna, Rama, all that. Both things are equally the same ... (continue)

It must be made clear again that except for quotes and images of Her incarnation Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi this site is almost entirely about the Divine Feminine (Devi/Holy Spirit-Paraclete/Ruh/Tao/Aykaa Mayee/ Mother). There is no hidden agenda and this site contains all the knowledge and evidence required to re-establish the faith, belief and conviction in the Divine and the promised Resurrection to evolve into the eternal spirit - 4000 pages and counting. The mystical Kingdom of Spirit (Sahasrara) is within your being. There is thus absolutely no need for any external religious/spiritual organizations, dogmas, rituals, worship of images/ idols, or any human intermediary whatsoever ... (continue)
16. Shri Mataji's Astrology Chart
Nirmala Yoga Magazine, Jan-Feb 1981
The Paraclete Shri Mataji "MATAJI was born at Nagpur at 12.09 p.m., I.S.T. (noon time) on 21st March 1923. At this moment, taking into consideration the local time of Nagpur, the Sun was exactly on the Meridian in full glory, and being in the zero degree of Aries or the 30th degree of Pisces, the Sun in that position made a Rajayoga (i.e. an aspect for leadership and prominence in life), which has endowed her with the Sun's glamour and power.
Her rising sign is Cancer and the Ascendent is in the 8th degree. The Ascendant in Cancer makes her a Mother of the Universe, a Jaganmata, as the Ascendant is strongly aspected by five planets ... (continue)
