Emerald Trove, Book 15: Post CXXXIX:
Lord, I have come to accept and to discern that my fate is in Your priesthood. And I have come to realize that I am to be ordained as Your priest. Amen. Lord, I also have come to understand that not everything I hear and write is from You. Hence, much folly and error has been written through me as allegedly from You, but which was not. Lord, I repent speaking and writing things as coming from You when they did not come from You. Let this never happen again. And I am a celibate and virgin man. And I will remain celibate and virgin unto the end of time. Amen.
Also, I hereby pledge my eternal purity. I will not masturbate ever again. Amen. Nor will I ever deliberately view pornography or any sexually immoral temptation. Lord, in order for me to be Your priest, You know that I must receive cures. And I know that these cures will come, for You have said unto Me, unmistakably, that I am to become a priest. And I fully accept the priesthood. I have no further ties to women, except that I will continue to help Hyacinth as she needs and as Thou command me. Amen.
Lord, what sayest Thou? Lord Azurite, great shame shall come to those who engage in illicit sex acts. Those who do not follow the sexual morality that I have commanded in My Catholic Church will be greatly put to shame. I allow for freedom of religion except where that freedom enters into sin. Hence, you are mandated to enact into law in all the lands handed over to you to rule with an iron scepter, the principle that every law that violates the laws of Catholicism is, by definition, unconstitutional.
For you cannot have a successful body of law divorced from the Catholic Church. For look at the mess the United States of America and the whole world are in because they divorced their constitutional freedoms from the Catholic Church. Instead of mandating that people have sex only within the bonds of holy matrimony, as was originally understood as common law, the entire court systems of every nation on earth has devolved to forcing people into accepting abominable sexual behavior in the form of obscene homosexual marriages. This is an obscene outrage. It cannot stand.
Hence, the law cannot work where the Catholic Church is rejected from it. Rather, the Catholic Church must be made the state religion of each and every nation over which I give unto you to govern. And therefore, any law that violates the Catholic Church must therefore be defined as unconstitutional, on the basis that it violates Catholic law. Amen. Do this, and We shall be pleased. Amen.
Lord, I hereby decree for each and every nation in My Azurite Kingdom to comply with this mandate. All law must be hereby subject to the Catholic Church on all issues of faith and morals and in the institution of marriage. No domestic partnerships are allowed. No experimenting in marriage. Either you marry or you remain single. No more gay marriages, for that is the ultimate slap in the face of God. And all those homosexuals who have married are to be flogged. They are to be whipped and beaten in a series of lashes. They are to be given as many lashes as is deemed proportional to the number of years that they have been abusing the institution of marriage by entering into or existing in a gay marriage.
And the penalty for a repeat offender, after having been thoroughly whipped and beaten, is death. Consider, therefore, this whipping and beating to be an act of mercy and an opportunity for repentance. For the Azurite Kingdom has no room for abominable sexual behavior. Amen. Either you will repent and conform to Catholic law on sex, or you will face death.
So also, all those who deliberately violate a lawful marriage, either their’s or the another’s, they are defined as having committed adultery. The man is equally guilty as the woman in the willful act. That another man’s wife is willing to sleep with you, and you accept her advances, it is not just the adulterous wife who is guilty of the crime. You, too, have transgressed and committed adultery. Both of you have sinned against the same marriage and against the God Who joined the lawful husband and wife together.
Adultery carries the death penalty on the second conviction under Azurite law. For the first conviction under Azurite law, both the man and the woman will be severely publicly flogged, just like the homosexuals who violate the law against gay marriage. I, Eric, have spoken.
For the fornicators who have sex, these will both be publicly flogged. The fornicator who repeats the offense three times under Azurite law will be put to death. I, Eric, have spoken.
Marriage law must be thoroughly reformed. And marriages must be dealt with according to the baptismal status of the person married. Baptized people must comply with Catholic Church law in order to be validly married. Unbaptized people will unregulated in their marital practices, with the following restrictions: Polygamy is outlawed. Sex unmarried is outlawed. Adultery is outlawed. And gay marriage is outlawed. Non-Christian religions that are willing to comply with these laws may conduct their own marriages according to their own religious statutes and laws.
Those unbaptized people not affiliated with any particular religion may be married directly by the state. But they must follow the basic laws. And the understanding of marriage, even for unbaptized people, is that it is permanent. This is derived from the teachings of Jesus on the marriage between Adam and Eve, who lived before Judaism and Christianity existed. And Jesus said that in marriage, the two become one flesh. And what God has joined together no one may take apart. (Matthew 19:3-12 & Mark 10:2-12). Any divorce from a lawful marriage, followed by a remarriage, constitutes adultery. However, since the Catholic practice is to enforce this law only as regards baptized people, this regulation will not be forced upon the unbaptized.
Hence, a distinction shall be made between marriages that conform to Catholicism, validly entered into by baptized persons, and marriages between the unbaptized. The former are to be called sacramental marriages. The latter are to be classified as pagan marriages, or to be denoted according to the non-Christian religion in which they are conducted: e.g. Jewish marriages, Muslim marriages, Hindu marriages, Mormon marriages, and so on.
Note that Mormonism will be defined as a non-Christian religion, due to its lack of a valid baptism. Any Church that does not have a valid baptism will be classified as a non-Christian religion. Note that the Azurite Kingdom is defined as a Catholic Christian Kingdom. Freedom of religion exists, but not the license to sin. All laws in the Kingdom must conform to the Catholic Church, which is the state religion. Other religions may exist and be practiced, but the members must abide by Catholic law. And the Catholic Church has one set of laws for baptized people, and another set of laws for the unbaptized.
And baptism is as the Catholic Church defines it. It requires the recognition of God as existing in three divine Persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And baptism is conducted by using water applied over the head of the one being baptized, saying the words: “I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” All religions that comply with this requirement for their members are to be called Christian religions. And all religions that do not conform to this requirement are to be called pagan religions, with the exception of Judaism, which is regarded as the ancestor religion of Christianity, and hence, cannot be defined as pagan. All Judaic religions are to be classified as precursor-Christian religions. And religions that are based in Christianity but that lack true baptism, are to be classified as pseudo-Christian pagan religions. Hence, all religious practices and faiths in the Azurite Kingdom will be classified as follows:
- Catholicism (also includes Jewish Catholicism, called Hebrew Catholicism).
- other Churches with valid Apostolic Succession (includes Orthodox churches).
- other baptized Christian religions (includes Protestantism and Jewish Protestantism).
- precursor-Christian religions (non-Christian forms of Judaism).
- pseudo-Christian paganism (includes Mormonism and Jehovah Witnesses).
- paganism (includes Islam, Hinduism, East Asian religions, Voodoo, etc.)
- unaffiliated (includes atheists, non-religious, and unaffiliated spiritual persons).
Those ranked closer to Catholicism in their religious practices will have greater rights than those ranked further away, in accordance to the list above of the seven classifications of religious belief, faith, and practice. Amen.
Lord, will You again define the entire Kingdom over which You have set me as eternal ruler? Yes lord Azurite. You are defined as eternal ruler of the following Kingdom, defined as containing the listed lands:
(1) Kingdom of Azurite, ruled eternally by the Azurite King. And his Kingdom consists of the following lands.
North American Subkingdom
- United States of America
- Saint Pierre and Miquelon
- Turks & Caicos Islands
- Puerto Rico
- Virgin Islands (U.S. and British)
- Dominican Republic
- United Kingdom
- Isle of Man
- Republic of Ireland
- Holland (Netherlands)
- Czech Republic
- San Marino
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- North Macedonia
Russian and North Asian Subkingdom
- Russian Federation
And the list of official languages that shall dominate your Kingdom, lord Azurite, shall consist of the following twelve:
Over all these lands, you, lord Azurite, are made eternal ruler. And you are to force all Mankind residing within to full conformance to My law, as you have defined it. Amen. For I have made you eternal, celibate Prophet King, and ruler over all the subjects of these lands. Rule them with an iron scepter and shatter them like pottery. I Who Am command this. (Revelation 2:26-28).
And now let Us see the updated progress you are making in reading the entire Holy Bible in the order of the books as I have subscribed.
I have been assigned to read the entire set of scriptures from a 1953 copyrighted Catholic Holy Bible. And I have now read in that Bible the following books, in this order: (1) Job, (2) Song of Songs (Canticle of Canticles), (3,4,5,6) the four Books of Kings (which are 1&2 of Samuel and 1&2 of Kings), (7) Ruth, (8) Judges, (9) Genesis, (10) Exodus, (11) Joshua (Josue), (12) Hebrews, (13) James, (14) Revelation, (15) John, (16) Mark, (17) Ezekiel, (18) Daniel, (19) Lamentations, (20) Jeremiah (Jeremias), (21) Isaiah (Isaias), (22) Leviticus, and (23) Numbers. And right now I am in the last book of the Law of Moses in the Old Testament, reading: (24) Deuteronomy. And after I finish that book, I am commanded to read the rest of the Catholic Holy Bible in this order: (25) Matthew, (26) Luke, (27) Romans, (28) 1 Corinthians, (29) 2 Corinthians, (30) Tobit (Tobias), (31) Esther, (32) Jonah (Jonas), (33) Acts, (34) 1 Chronicles (1 Paralipomenon), (35) 2 Chronicles (2 Paralipomenon), (36) 1 Peter, (37) 2 Peter, (38) Jude, (39) Judith, (40) Ecclesiastes, (41) Wisdom, (42) Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), (43) Ezra (1 Esdras), (44) Nehemiah (2 Esdras), (45) 1 Maccabees (1 Machabees), (46) 2 Maccabees (2 Machabees), (47) Proverbs, (48) Psalms, (49) 1 John, (50) 2, John, (51) 3 John, (52) Galatians, (53) Ephesians, (54) Philippians, (55) Baruch, (56) Hosea (Osee), (57) Joel, (58) Amos, (59) Obadiah (Abdias), (60) Micah (Micheas), (61) Nahum, (62) Habakkuk (Habacuc), (63) Zephaniah (Sophonias), (64) Haggai (Aggeus), (65) Zechariah (Zacharias), (66) Malachi (Malachias), (67) Colossians, (68) 1 Thessalonians, (69) 2 Thessalonians, (70) 1 Timothy, (71) 2 Timothy, (72) Titus, and (73) Philemon. And then I will have read all 73 books of the Roman Catholic Canon. This will be the first time I will have completely read the entire Holy Bible. And I am commanded to read each day one, two, or three chapters, unless they are small, in which case I may read four or five chapters that day. For by reading just a little amount each day, one’s brain is able to retain the knowledge that one has read. Reading too much in one day, and the knowledge would be forgotten.
And tell Us some of the things you have learned, lord Azurite. I have seen in Numbers 35:30 where it specifies that a single witness’s testimony, no matter who he is, is insufficient evidence to convict and to put someone to death. Thus, multiple witnesses, or other, more compelling evidence, such as video recordings, are necessary to convict any person of a capital offense in the Azurite Kingdom. For this Law of Moses is fundamental to the judicial system of all nations in the Azurite Kingdom. Amen.
Also, I believe that the Torah was not first put to paper during the Monarchical periods of Israeli history. Rather, I believe that, as the Scriptures themselves frequently make reference to earlier ancient books that no longer exist, the Torah itself must have existed in various written forms going back as far as the time of Moses. And I believe that copies of these works were handed down through the ages and considered sacred, and hence, were resistant to serious modifications. We do not have the original Torah today, just as we do not have the original Gospels. For it is known that Matthew and Luke were derived from various earlier written works that We do not have, with the exception of Mark, which was also based on earlier works. But though the original Torah we do not have, the contents of the original works I do believe were copied faithfully and under inspiration. For there is frequent reference to Moses in committing things to writing. Now, not all of these writings were perfectly preserved. During the various dark ages of history, during which the ancient books were being copied and preserved, there were obviously things that failed to be copied. For there are frequent passages that are incomplete, or that have missing details, things that failed to be copied in the handing down of the scriptures through the generations. If a scribe conducting the copying could not read or make out the words of a certain passage, he would be, hence, forced to skip that section, leading to missing passages in the Word of God. Also, if a scribe or a translator misunderstood a particular passage, he might rewrite it or translate it to have a different meaning, leading to different versions of scripture, with subtle differences in what they teach.
Hence, the written Word of God is a complex and patchy work. It is composed of many translated works from many ancient sources, whose originals we do not have. Amen. But I, nevertheless, wish to study the scriptures along with the ancient languages in which they were written. And I also know that Koine Greek and Hebrew were not in ancient times the exact and well formed languages that they are today. Rather, in ancient times, there were many inconsistencies in grammar and spelling and in the meanings of words, phrases, and sentences. And coupled with this is the loss of many books that were once read and well known in the various ancient times and past ages. Hence, the Holy Bible is a hard book to study. Most people who approach it read only from certain selected verses.
And that is why the Catholic Church carefully selects what Bible passages to read at its liturgical celebrations. They cannot pick these passages willy nilly, or else the meanings would be incomprehensible. And many passages in the Holy Bible cannot be understood except in carefully studying the context in which they are written. That is why, to study the entire Holy Bible, it is important for one to have read the entire Holy Bible, not necessarily in the order that the books occur, but in some order that makes sense and that leads to a progression of concepts. Amen.
Lord, what sayest Thou? For I have now written many things. And O’ Lord, I do not believe that I have the power to overthrow rulers. For if I had, I would have overthrown Vladimir Putin a long time ago. I think I have been a fool to think that I had such power. When I was Emerald, the devil fooled me to think I had that power. For my power over the world as Emerald was a Satanic deception. And I was the greatest fool of that deception. Amen.
Eric, while you did base your power on the teachings of Jesus about faith moving mountains, you are correct. You do not have the power to arbitrarily change things in this world. Only with My approval can you do these things. And as for Alexei Navalny, he did not listen to Me, but made his move too suddenly. He should have waited until I ordered him to return. Now he is under the power and the will of Putin. If he becomes a martyr, what really would he have accomplished? Hence, everyone who wishes to be effective in what they do must learn to obey Me.
You, lord Azurite, obey Me. And I Am satisfied with your confessions of sin. Go and confess your sins to a priest and sin no more. Furthermore, I Am calling you to the priesthood. Expect this calling to come any day now. And when it comes, you are to approach the priest as I direct you, and you are to tell him of your calling as I shall command you. Amen.
As for things to study, realize that your career in software development and server administration is coming to an end. And you will be called to devote your full time to religious matters and in the salvation of souls. I will make you a priest and you shall serve Me in a parish that I will choose. Hence, concern yourself with matters that will pertain to your future role as My priest. And you may study Spanish, Latin, Koine Greek, and Hebrew as these will be beneficial to your ascendancy into the ranks of My clerics in My Catholic Church. Amen. And you shall be made a major theologian in the Catholic Church. This post now comes to its end. Publish it, lord Azurite, for it is complete. Amen.
