And he will be tire accepted leader. Thrice daily, the Orthodox Jew recites the "Alenu" prayer, asking that soon this world "will be perfected under the kingdom of the Almighty, and all the children of flesh will call upon Thy Name.
And every Christian asks for the same, when he recites the "Our Father": The texts are many, and we cannot quote them all. Isaiah speaks of a time when "the Lord shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her deserts like the garden of the Lord.
And for those who have never visited Israel, nor seen roses blossoming in her deserts, perhaps this text will seem to deal with familiar events: Jesus himself spoke of the coming of the Messiah in a parable which he told to the people of his own time, and which was recorded in the gospels.
He suggests that after the Son has been rejected and killed by men, the next step is for the Father to come. There was once a man who planted a vineyard, and he built a hedge around it, and set up a winepress, and a tower, and he rented the property out to some sharecroppers, and left for foreign lands.
In due season, he sent his men to the sharecroppers, to collect his share. But the tenants beat u his men unmercifully, killing some, and driving others away with stones. The owner sent in more of his trusted servants, who were similarly beaten. At last, he sent his son, thinking that he at least would instill some respect into the tenants.
If we kill him, the whole property will be completely in our hands. So they killed him. Now the question is, what will the owner do, when he comes himself?
He will descend upon those tenants, and he will wipe them out, and hand the vineyard over to the people who will serve his interests better. In other words, we would do better to look for the first coming of the Father, rather than for the Second Coming of the Son.
The blind medieval poet, Surdas, is quite certain that this time in history is the great turning point, the start of a new age. In one of his songs,he tells himself: The corners of the world will catch their breath to witness such a spate of sudden death. They shall escape this doom alone, who follow Hans.
Let Surdas say this much.
We cannot avoid His perfect Play. He was writing from within the Indian tradition.
In the Bhagavad Gita he tells his disciple Arjuna: Whenever righteousness is in decline, and unrighteousness is in the ascendant, I come in human form. To protect the virtuous, to destroy the evildoers and to establish righteousness on a firm footing, I am born age after age.
And Buddha echoes this teaching. Buddhist scriptures tell us that shortly before the Buddha was to leave this world, he called his disciple Ananda to his side, and asked Ananda why he was weeping.
Buddha told Ananda to wipe away his tears and reminded him that all fleshly bodies must pass away, while the body of the excellent law endures.
Ananda asked the Buddha to whom his disciples should look for teaching when the Buddha was gone, and the Buddha replied: I am not the first Buddha who has come upon the earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time another Buddha will arise in the world, a holy One, a supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom, auspicious, embracing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a ruler of angels and mortals.
He will reveal to you the same eternal, truths, which I have taught you. He will establish his law, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax and glorious at the goal in the spirit and in the letter.6 Mind Expanding Movies That Will Make You Question Reality and Life.
