Click to continue to: Chapter 11
Summary: Chapter 10 God says he will purify the minds of Kara and Tenjiku
God will enter their bodies, and give them guidance.
God will begin to favor nihon. God will teach them everything, and make one spirited.
When the Kanrodai is completed (when all mankind purified), there will be no illness and death.
Kara has been rampant, and God will now give returns. God will guide them with illness to purify their minds.
God waits for the service performers to pray. When they pray, new members will come to them at the residence. The purpose is to share the religion, so all minds can become pure.
What kind of service (prayer) will it be. God says it is the Kanrodai service (prayer directed toward the Kanrodai). This has many significance.
The Kanrodai stand represents the existence of the original parent of mankind (Oyasama). God says that Oyasama is living. Proof that Oyasama is alive and ever-living at the location of creation.
God says that God compares Oyasama’s mind with the prayer(s), and if the mind is pure, God provides the blessings.
God saying that he is preparing for the service when all mankind is purified. The final service members are the 10 instruments used in the creation of mankind. When all mankind is purified, the Kanrodai pillar will be constructed. The ten performers will pray (Kanrodai/Joyous Service). From heaven, the gift of heaven will then be provided to the Kanrodai/Oyasama. Oyasama will then provide the blessings to the world. There will be everlasting joy in the world.
God says that he will begin to teach. God says we need to know the Origin why mankind was created. He tells us that we need to return to the origin, when mankind was created. This origin is the pure mind of God.
When one knows the origin, God will assure us wherever we go.
God says that our parents are the earth and heaven. In creating humans, God took qualities of sea life in the oceans and combined them to create human beings; but he also added the pure mind of God from heaven. This is why God wants us to go back to the origin to find the pure heart.
God want everyone to know about the innermost heart. The innermost heart (soul) was originally pure. The pure heart only produces joy. But man’s evil thoughts have surrounded his or her heart (soul), and these evils surrounding the heart (soul) brings upon suffering. God wants people to know how this process works (causality, karma, or innen).
When the innermost heart of the world is pure, everyone will become spirited. When everyone is spirited, God will teach them everything.
God says what he has talked about has not been seen yet, but will soon come and be seen naturally. One will begin to see the results of God working (1887). Will see people with illness coming to our places of worship.
God saying that if illness comes, it is God’s guidance. God tells us to reflect on whatever happens. It may be God’s guidance.
