The Prophet

Johanna Brandt wrote that when the Messenger returned to her and appeased her:

“He removed the consuming anxiety that I would be too late with my message by simply showing me the stretch of time that would elapse before those revelations of coming disasters would be fulfilled. It had been quite natural, with that spectacle of honor looming large and near, that I should have lost sight entirely of the intervening space of time; but henceforth I should rest more securely in the Divine origin of these prophesies, knowing that impatience and anxiety formed insurmountable barriers to Divine instruction.”

She continues to answer the three questions that most asked when she began to spread the word through her public speaking, reaching out to both women and men alike.. The first question was; Do most believe that the age of miracles have past? In her book she was able to compile the Christian history which is filled with many miracles, but the many miracles that have been performed can fill many volumes of books, not possible to be contained in one book.

“History proves that miracles have been manifested to men in all ages in all the ages past… We admit that mysticism has been all but buried under the materialism of our day, and that what we call miracles has been few and far between during the last centuries, but there is undeniable proof all around us that the age of mysticism has been revived. We hear of cases of miraculous healing on every side, but we simply refuse to accept them; there are Divinely inspired teachings spreading far and wide, if we could only bring ourselves to recognize them.”

The second question was what happened to her in 1917 when the Messenger came to her was it not a trance-experience that those who were skeptic asked about. She adamantly denied such occurrence to be such, she was raised to be a Christian to see such practices of seance and such to be sinful and of dangerous practice. Her original manuscript of those visions she received from the Messenger were written in forty five pages, but because they contained personal details of her family, her people and the future of South Africa, she knew it would be banned from being published since the political parties of that time would refuse its content.

The last question to be asked, is what shall we do to be save?

“What are you going to do, every men and women? What part are you going to play in the tragedies to be enacted in this country in the near future? Remember— it is not my voice that asks these questions, the Message of this book is not my message to you, and it is no coincidence, no accident, which causes this book to fall into your hands at this critical moment. These revelations have a meaning for you, otherwise they would have not reached you at all. There is no such thing as chance.

“There are many other questions, there are various political parties and you are probably a member of one of them. You have chosen the ranks of one of them— it does not matter which, and it does not matter what your motives were in the choice you made, for you are prompted in your motives. And let us take it then that it is good and right to have different political parties in a country. What then? The parties are impersonal affairs, all claiming to possess those principles best calculated to promote the social, national and political interest of our country.

By what means have you upheld those principles? Have you employed strategy and cunning? Have you used violence? Have you spent your time in building up the interests of your party or in breaking-down those of your opponent? Have you sown seeds of suspicion, dislike and distrust against your political opponent? Are you plotting violence?

These questions each one must answer for himself.”
