You must remain like a tree that has strong roots. From now on this is the time when we must reveal the truth. We can not wait any longer. We will not wait any longer. We must go forward with pride and reveal the truth. I have been daring! Look at the cross, for example, all who should have supported, all were hidden, all apostles, only thieves were with him at the last moment of his life and yet the left thief still mocked Jesus and the right one said [ this person is different from us, has no sin …] And Jesus said to him, even today he will be with me in Paradise. Paradise is not the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore from that point of view I will be proud of you. I’m already proud of you. I see the reports and I’m already proud, Grateful. All things that are wrong in this world can be rectified, Tidy up. There are still many wrong things, And you second and third generation must change the world … ”
