Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno) 1864-1944
"ERADICATION OF THE OLD"
"A new Wave is coming from out of the Cosmic Space: the Wave of Divine Love. It is also called 'the Wave of Fire'. This Wave has powerful vibrations which not every human being can endure. It has been said, for this reason, that God is an all-consuming Fire. Those who are ready to withstand the vibrations of this Wave and assimilate them will become luminous. Yet for those who cannot bear them, it will be a Fire which will either consume them or will cause them to pass through great suffering. This will prepare them to awaken and receive Love.
This Wave of Love which is coming is also called the Divine Fire. Everything old and impure will burn in it. After man passes through this Divine Fire, the Kingdom of God will come to Earth. I say: when the Fire of Love comes, some people will become luminous; but others will burn, will pass through repentance.
"Today you find yourselves in a great phase of Life. Not too much time will pass before you will find yourselves passing through the Fire. This will be in your lifetime. This Wave of Fire will soon pass over the world and purify it. All human thoughts and desires will pass through this Fire and become purified in the most perfect way. The Great Life will enter you, and you will become transformed. As the smith places the iron in the fire in order to refine it, so too, the Intelligent World will pass us through the Fire so that we can be purified and tempered.
"Those Beings which descend from above say, 'We will turn the earth on its head and will chase the evil away from it.' The evil will not attempt to come near it again.
"The great destruction which occurs today is due to this great Life which comes now. If people do not accept Christ voluntarily, the whole culture will pass through Fire seven times, but in the end, it will be purified and renewed.
"The Wave of Fire will pass through the minds of all people. You all will pass through this Divine Fire; you will free your souls and be liberated from bondage.
"If man does not awaken and arise, all the 'blankets' in which he has wrapped himself will burn. Everything which man has created will burn and turn into ashes and dust. What I am speaking of is the Coming of the Day of the Lord. I say now, 'We are in the Day of the Lord!'
"Only one-half hour remains before the last train leaves. Woe to those who have not yet managed to settle their accounts. If Europe does not correct her past mistakes, great tribulations will come her way.
"The Lord is coming, and He has already set His Foot upon the earth. I can easily prove that He has set foot upon the earth. How? The great suffering which is constantly increasing is the proof that the Lord is coming to this world. Do you know what His decision is? Everything impure is to burn. One has never before seen the dust that will be raised on earth. You have never suspected what great cleansing is coming before the Great Day. Nothing will remain of the European states and of the planning of the European diplomats. Love will destroy everything old. After that we will start to build. This turbulence among societies, this unrest among those who are in distress, indicates that God permeates everything. All this is linked to the eradication of the karma of humankind which has accumulated for thousands of years. Until all old concepts, thoughts and feelings bum in the Fire of suffering, man cannot enter into the new Life which is due to come now.
"Because for thousands of years man was under the influence of the negative forces, these forces now turn against him. Man has strayed from his right path, and all misfortunes are due to that. People have deviated from many things and for this reason, have remained behind in their development. The Invisible World wants to help them so that they may develop properly. The Invisible World is sending workers with their hammers to work on people's homes. These misfortunes are called 'the unfavorable conditions of life.' With their imprudent way of life, people let loose the evil, and as a result, tribulations come. That which man experiences, and feels hanging heavily over him, is his karma. This is a debt which is due to be paid. In Matthew Chapter 24, the woman who was 'taken' has paid her karma, she is free of any debt. On the other hand, the woman who was 'left' has not yet eliminated her karma. And so, the present events indicate the paying off of an old debt: the eradication of karma. An acceleration in the eradication of the past error of humankind is taking place at present - everything that has accumulated is being eradicated.
"In the fall, all old leaves fall whether they want to or not. Only new buds which will produce new branches in the coming spring - only new leaves and flowers - remain on the trees. The beauty of life is in the changes. After a storm, the weather clears. The present events are like a storm: they will pass. Everything that occurs is for the better. We think that the present order is good, but God is weary of the transgressions which people commit.
"The karma of the European nations is already ripe and creates tribulations for the whole of humankind. The tribulations indicate that man must change his way of life and apply the Divine Teaching. The Jews did not accept the Teachings of Christ, and tribulations came upon them. The Christian nations did not apply Christ's Teaching, and the present tribulations came. The present troubles come because man did not accept voluntarily and with an awakened consciousness to fulfill the Will of God. Even greater disturbances - external as well as internal -will come in order for man to awaken and fulfill the Will of God. to serve God. This will be forced upon humankind.
"Modern culture is in its departure. The new culture is coming, and its application in life will begin. The Invisible World has decided to teach modem civilized people a lesson which they will remember for a thousand years. The Scripture says, 'The Wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience.' In other words, the Potter will break up the imperfect pots."
On another occasion, the Master said:
"The whole earth at present is undergoing a great change, a reconstruction. This will continue until its forces become balanced. The earth will undergo disturbances. There exist ways to predict in which region of the planet the greatest turbulence will occur.
"All of Europe, the entire earth is in turmoil. The entire world is in disarray. Be not afraid. In such times of trouble, people will come to know God: will come to understand that He is that Great Intelligent Power which turns all things to good. You must remain calm and peaceful and know that the times in which you live are most favorable.
"All of Europe will pass through unimaginable trials. Modern Europeans have built a dam on the river which one day will collapse. Therefore, whoever is above the town should search for refuge in the mountain, and whoever is at the low level must run for higher ground. I speak symbolically.
"People ask what will become of them in the future. Imagine that you live on the North Pole where everything is ice. Your homes are made of ice: nowhere can you see water. I say to you that you need to take some precautionary measures because the earth will undergo great changes. The sun will start to shine very hot. It will melt the ice: the homes will fall apart, and you will start to sink. You say, 'What bad fortune has come to us.' This is not bad fortune - simply the ice melts. The same I say to you now: if you do not correct your life, the same will happen to you. I do not say this to frighten you. It is the natural course of life. The Great Wave which comes now breaks up the ice and turns it into water. This is the Great Intelligent Wave that already draws near to the world.
"After these events, human egotism will vanish and people will begin to live freely and as brothers. The time has come for all people to abandon the old way of life.
"The God of whom I speak to you will shake the earth. Only then will you come to understand whether or not I have been speaking the truth. The Scripture says that God will shake the earth and that every living creature will realize that Justice, Truth, Virtue, Love and Wisdom exist. All people throughout the world must know that God is present in the world - and people will come to know this.
"You say, 'We are not prepared yet.' When will you be ready? You say, 'The time has not come yet.' Who told you that the time has not come yet? If you do not follow the Divine, the earth will begin to shake.
"After the earth shakes, after all your guns and cannons are destroyed, you will be asked, 'Will you obey?' You will say, 'Yes, we will obey.' When you observe all these things, you will become wiser. The entire earth will shake with such power that no trace will remain of the present culture. This will take place as based upon the great natural laws. Not one nation in Europe will remain unpunished: the present order and all human lies will vanish.
"Christ has said, 'The sun will darken, the moon will wane, and the stars will fall.' Interpreted, this means that all false human religious beliefs will lose their meaning, all worldly power will be overshadowed, will lose its hold. Therefore the disciples should work to improve themselves: clothe themselves in armor and don helmets in order to withstand this Wave of suffering and trials which man must endure. This armor is Love.
"Many people can learn from their own mistakes. If one tries to speak to them, they will not comprehend. Such people will learn on the path of suffering. The turbulent flow which represents the tribulations and conflicts of humankind wilt abate by the end of the century. Naturally, the human souls who are more developed will be freed from this flood sooner. The nations are healed through suffering. It is impossible to heal a nation without suffering. It is the only medicine.
"What needs to be corrected will be corrected. What needs to be destroyed will be destroyed. Take advantage of the short time which remains. Now is the time to begin living in harmony with the new Life. The evil has exhausted all the conditions for its existence. It can no longer succeed, and it is retreating - only its dregs have remained. The Light will drive away all the darkness. Owing to the present tribulations, man will awaken. Unless the pure is sifted from the impure, the life of man will be meaningless.
"After these events, the new will immediately gain control of the world. The good times will come. Now it is difficult. We all know that life is hard during the winter. It is easier when the spring comes. It is also easy to live in the summer and the fall. At present, we are coming to the end of the winter.
"When the New comes, violence will no longer exist. Nothing will remain of modern weapons or of modem courts and prisons, as well. The present order will be cast out. God is creating a new World. The old world is giving way to the new.
"When people enter the new Life, they will converse with Angels and with God. How will they speak with God? In silence. In silence you will look at the stars, the moon, the sun; and you will be filled with gladness. God is in all of them. You will be joyful for every little stone, plant and animal. God lives in them. You will rejoice in the soft wind, the pure spring: in them is God."
