Summary: Chapter 7
God descended from heaven 38 years ago to save mankind. This was foretold when mankind was created.
God wants to tell everyone about causality because he sees the future. But no one understands that what we think and act today effects what happens in the future.
God talking about finding missionaries. God will guide them with illness, purifying their minds. God also says he will find mature old missionaries first.
God does not discriminate between male of female missionaries.
God asking people to purify their minds. He tells us that his blessings are dependent on the mind of sincerity.
God will show miraculous blessings. God will enter bodies and begin to guide people. He will distinguish the mind, and will place illness as guidance. This is a process of purifying the mind. These blessings are initiated with the sincere prayer (Joyous Service).
God saying that he has many prayers to initiate salvation. In the early days there were many prayers that brought people into the religion, like safe delivery, and smallpox prevention. But today we have only the Joyous Service, and the Sazuke.
God talking of the salvation service saving people from small pox and child bearing. God tells people to purify their minds, and God will enter them and provide blessings upon receiving the prayer. Note: the religion initially spread because it became known for the safe delivery of pregnancy.
God telling people that what he is saying is not from a human mind. This concerns Oyasama who is the shrine of God. This is directed to the people who doubted Oyasama as the shrine of God.
God saying that he will go out to work from now on, and encourages people to purify their minds so the special prayer becomes effective.
God says that when the people in the high mountains (upper class/nihon) are able to understand, God will provide the blessings. These blessing will be guidance as illness.
God talks about one of the instruments that was used in the creation of mankind. He says that he is waiting to return her to earth. When all mankind is purified, she and the other souls at creation will perform the Joyous Service around the Kanrodai. This will bring upon joy to all mankind.
God says to perform the Joyous Service if we want to see her. The Joyous Service brings others to our place of worship, helping them to purify their minds. God telling early followers to hasten the prayer so that they can see her one day sooner.
God wants us to perform the Joyous Service, so that we can enhance the purification of all mankind. When this occurs, the first instruments at creation with perform the Kagura Service, creating a heaven on earth.
Only if one has true sincerity (purity of mind), will God provide the blessings
Because the original parent exist (Oyasama), these blessings are possible. God compares Oyasama’s mind/original pure mind with the prayer’s mind.
When all mankind is purified, God and mankind will be spirited and one.
