Q: I understand that there are only two testaments in the Bible, the Old and the New. Where did a Third Testament come from?

Certainly, the Bible, as we know it in the present time only contains two Testaments, the Old and the New, but just as it happened before the arrival of Jesus Christ -when there only existed what we now know as the Old Testament, the first of the legacy of the Lord- as the divine inspiration followed through Jesus himself and His apostles, the new revelations became the second legacy of the Lord , which we now know as the New Testament. If we keep in mind that God is eternal, eternal also is His word and in this time of tribulation, is only natural that more divine revelations were to reach us. And the source of The Third Testament is the same as the other two: God’s inspiration.
Q: In John’s Book of Revelation 22:18 says “If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book”. How do you explain this?

The Third Testament is NOT an addendum to the Book of Revelation. First, Revelation’s verse refers only to the Book of Revelation itself, not to the whole body of revelations known as The New Testament. Secondly, the divine teachings of The Third Testament are not men’s work, they come from God Himself. And third, if John’s warning were in reference to new revelations, how then the promise of Jesus in John 14:26 and 16:13 could be fulfilled?

Furthermore, in the very same Book of Revelation comes the prophecy of yet another book! Please read Revelation 20:12.

And last but not least, if you think that the Bible contains already all of the divine wisdom, please remember the words of our Lord Jesus: “I have yet many things, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth…and he will shew you things to come”. (John 16:12,13) This time, promised by our Lord is now. And the Spirit of Truth came in a whole fulfillment of the promises of Jesus.

Q: When and where was The Third Testament delivered?

From 1866 a new stage to humanity was opened, an era foreseen by John and known as The Book of Revelation or The Apocalypse; 1866 marked the prelude for the beginning of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit through the human understanding of many men and women -“spokesmen” they were called- and these manifestations took place between 1866 and 1950, in different parts of the Mexican Republic mainly, but also in other parts of the world as well.
Q: In my religion nobody told me about any Third Testament. Why?

Even at this very moment, when the Gospel has reached all the corners of our planet fulfilling the prophecy that Jesus Himself spoke, still there are many religions that do not accept that divine teaching. Furthermore, the Jewish people still refuse to accept the Gospels and the New Testament as a part of their bible. It is not unusual then, that a new revelation from God would not be accepted by the established religions, which in the past refused to see or accept evidence pertaining to ideas that sound strange to them and prefer to hold to their traditions and history, denying that such revelations could come from the Divinity.
Q: Who wrote The Third Testament?

If you look carefully to both the First (Old) and Second (New) Testament, you can clearly see that God uses whatever means necessary to deliver His divine teachings to man. For instance, in the OT you would find not only the books attributed to Moses but also those writings of the prophets, the psalms of David and the advice of Salomon, etc. The NT contains not only the words and acts of Jesus but includes also the teachings received by His disciples, and actually, the most quoted part of the NT is that of Paul, who was not even one of the Twelve chosen disciples of the Lord. And the Book of Revelation was written at the end of the first century, very far in time and distance from the events that took place in Palestine, when Jesus walked on the face of the earth. Likewise, The Third Testament was received over a long period of time by many persons of the most different social and cultural backgrounds.
Q: Could we then expect also a fourth or fifth Testament?

No. First, it was the time of the Father, then continued the time of the Son and now, we are living in the time of the Holy Spirit. Three different manifestations of the same God, in accordance with the evolution and development of the spirit of man.
Q: Where is it written that God would manifest Himself not two but three times?

It is a widely known fact that God teaches us through prophecies, parables and metaphors. It is this superior form of communication that He took to make us aware of all the things that were to happen in this Third Era of His manifestations as Holy Spirit and Spirit of Truth, which has become to be known as The Advent, or the Second Coming of the Lord. The following are brief excerpts of different parts of the Bible related to this.
  • Gen. 18:1-2 “And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mam’re…and, lo, three men stood by him…and bowed himself toward the ground”.. It is in this passage that the metaphoric figure of the Holy Trinity appears for the first time, because Abraham, whom is referred by God as His friend, sees the Lord in the figure of three men.
  • Ex. 19:11 “And be ready against the third day; for the third day the Lord will come in the sight of all the people…” This is the first of several similar allusions to the three eras of divine manifestations.
  • Luk. 20:12 “And again he send a third: and they wounded him…” The allusion to the three envoys is very clear, although no names are mentioned…even the prophecy that neither the third envoy would be believed is also very clear.
  • Mtw. 17:3-4 And behold, there appeared unto them Moses and E-li’as talking with him (Jesus)…” Another reference to the envoys of the three different eras and here it is very clear whom those are. Please note also the presence of Elijah, who was prophesized by Jesus Christ himself to return in the time of restoration.(Mtw. 17:11)
  • Jhn. 16:13 “How be it when he, the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth…and he will show you things to come…” This is probably the most important prophecy regarding a new era of manifestations, anticipated by Jesus for the time of the end, which is this one in which we live in.
Q: Couldn’t this be the work of Satan?

Each and every time that a new manifestation of God descends unto men, they feel disturbed and historically, the priests of all eras have attributed those surprising manifestations to the forces of evil, because of their lack of understanding of them. Just as it happened to Moses before Him, Jesus was charged of being taken by demons as is narrated in the NT. And it is precisely Jesus Christ who answers that question that had arisen when a new manifestation of the Lord came: “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” (Mtw. 12:26). God is God and all good flourishes from Him. And if a teaching talks us of good, then this teaching comes from God. Could good come from evil? 

And yes, as the prophecies are fulfilled, those who follow this third manifestation of the Lord will be accused of being deceived by Satan, demons or whatever name man gives to the force of evil. This also was prophesized by the Master himself when he said: “If they have called the master of the house, Be-el’ze-bub, how much more shall they call them of his household?” (Mtw. 10:25)
Q: We have heard of men alleging they are the Christ or saying they are envoys of God. Do they have something in common with The Third Testament?

No. We must be very aware because of these dangerous claims not only can confuse many, but also could possibly cause that the true divine revelations to be mistakenly mixed together with this falsehood. Jesus warned us about this: “And many false prophets shall raise, and shall deceive many…Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not”. 

The true manifestation of the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with this false messianism. Many scholars, priests and ministers wrongfully believe that they will see Jesus in the flesh walking again over the soil of the Earth. A simple reading of the mentioned verse would show that to be misguided. On the other hand, Jesus is very clear when He explains how we shall expect that manifestation to be: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…and then they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”. (Mtw. 24:27,30″.

The true meaning of this word could not be more precise: it is the lightning, not thunder, that symbolizes the light of above shining through the darkness, and the symbol that the new coming of the Lord was not to take place in the east, but in the west, through the spiritual communication of the Lord with the mind of man, which has the power to elevate to “the clouds of heaven” in order to be able to receive the divine inspiration.
Q: Why was The Third Testament delivered in Mexico? Why in Spanish? Would not it be more appropriate that God delivered His revelations in a more developed country?

It was prophesized since the beginning that in the end of time (this one) God would take other people as His rather than the Jewish people. Read the following: “…and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people, and they shall say, Thou art my God” (Hos. 2:23/Rom. 9:25) and with remarkable forcefulness, God reveals through Isaiah: “I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name”. (Isa. 65:1) Reading and understanding this is easy to deduct that the Jewish people would be no longer the treasurer of God’s new revelations. And that the Lord’s manifestations in this era were not to be in Judea is very clear when the following verse is studied: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…”. (Mtw. 24:27″

But, does this necessarily mean that Mexico, a little and underdeveloped country, is the chosen place for the Second Coming of the Lord? Let’s see. When Jesus explains to His disciples where is the Advent to take place, he said to them: “For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together”.(Mtw 24:28) The national symbol of Mexico has always been, even before the arrival of the Spaniards, an eagle devouring a serpent -itself, a very spiritual metaphor: the high devouring the low- and considering, besides, that in the Mexican Valley there is a great variety of this magnificent bird. And in the OT we find another prophetic verse in which the Lord warns the Jewish people that because of its defiance, He will chose another people, and in this prophecy appears, again, the symbol of the eagle: “The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth as swift as the eagle fleth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand.” (Dut. 28:49).

“…a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand”. In this verse not only the Lord anticipates that in the time of the end He shall take another nation as His people, but also that that other people would speak a language totally unknown to the Jewish people. And not only that, in the following verse the use of another different language is clearly implied: “…for with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people…” (Isa. 28:11)

Finally, it is proper to remember that in His past communications, the Lord has never chosen powerful nations to deliver His messages and teachings. On the contrary, He always pleased in chosing the humble and the poor to be the receivers of His divine inspirations. Jesus emphasizes this by saying: ” I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes”…
Q: In recent times there has been a lot of speculation about “contactees”, persons that supposedly are receiving messages from superior beings, extraterrestrials, aliens or UFOS, etc. Is The Third Testament part of this frenzy? And what about the New Age movement? Is The Third Testament related with any of this in any way?

The communication of the Holy Spirit through human understanding dates from the past century (1866), long time before the popular psyche was to be impacted by sightings of UFOs and phenomena of this kind. And even then, the spokesmen that received those divine revelations made it through elevating their mind and intuition, even before Alan Kardec’s channeling experiences. The thing that still amazes many that have studied the Third Testament is the fact that, even though those revelations were received by very humble persons (many of them illiterate peasants), the language and concepts that their lips poured were of such a sublime and superior nature, that makes it unthinkable a conspiracy or a fraud. Regarding the New Age movement, even though there are some things in common -such as the awareness of a new time for mankind and the acceptance of the law of reincarnation- The Third Testament is far more than a movement or an organized new cult or religion: It is God’s own legacy to humanity, regardless of age, color, race, nationality or creed, it is the Divine Doctrine at its best.
Q: Does The Third Testament belong to any religion or sect?

No. The Third Testament is a legacy of God to humanity and does not belong to any group, religion or sect. It is a divine heritage to all God’s children regardless of race, creed or nationality. But we must bear in mind that in The Third Testament it is prophesized that a major religion would make an attempt to appropiate this treasure claming that it was delivered in her congregation and once again, try to make a material profit out of it and to retain her temporary power . And all this should be in vain.
Q: I am very interested in cooperating to the spreading of the teachings of The Third Testament. Can I freely distribute copies of the texts or should I request for prior authorization?

Even though the compendium and abridged version of The Third Testament is protected by international copyright laws, and only because human laws required it so, in reality these teachings belong to humanity present and future as a whole, and it is because of this that the printing, copying, distribution and reproduction of the Third Testament is not only hereby fully authorized, but any further spreading and diffusion of its contents is strongly encouraged, with the only restriction that the original words and text should be respected and the source be rightfully quoted as well.
