The Greater World shall burst into full bloom like plum-
blossoms do - simultaneously. The time for Me, Ushitora-
no-KOnjin, to reign has come at last! This means the world
opened like plum-blossoms shall be Heaven-ruled as ever-
green pine trees; this is the world where things shall never go
well without Kami 's care. Know you, the world has hitherto
been and is that of beasts , the stronger preying upon the
weaker-quite devilish. Alas, the world of beasts! You are so
cheated by the Devil as to be quite unconscious of the truth;
a dark age. If things are left as they stand, order shall not be
kept. Therefore, through the manifestation of Divine Power,
the Greater World shall be reconstructed and transformed into
an entirely New World. After going through an over-all cleans-
ing, the Greater World shall be changed into the Kingdom of
Heaven where peace will reign through all ages to come. Be
prepared for peace to reign through all ages coming. Prepare
yourself for that, humanity! Never shall the world of Kami fail;
there shall be nothing that comes untrue even by the breadth
of a single hair. Know that should Kami err, He would be non-
All churches in the world are the forerunners of Oomoto, for
Oomoto is the last one. It has come to give the finish to the re-
construction of the world. All the pillars of the Sprit1 in the past
were aware of something of the reconstruction, but they knew
not how to carry it out. They knew not the vital point for the
success of Kami 's plan. But I know everything in the Greater
World. Should you feel forlorn and cheerless, come to Oomoto
in Ayabe to hear the Teaching, and you shall be given Divine
Virtue with which to see everything at a glance and to see all
that shall happen in the world hereafter.
1Seers, prophets, gurus, priests
People nowadays are all, as it were, simply deaf and blind;
they are in a very dangerous state, in the sight of Kami , like
cups and glasses put on the edge of a well.
Directry will leaves sprout from the roots of a creeping saxi-
frage; unless both the governing and governed flower, peace
shall never reign. If only the `former' prospers, that will not do;
if only the `latter' thrives, this world will not be peaceful, either.
Demons in this world must be vanquished and devils chas-
tised with shocks of earthquakes and thunder, or showers of
fireballs; otherwise, it shall not turn into the Kingdom of Heav-
en. But lo! The time has come round when Kami 's plan shall
be realized, so everything will be carried out rapidly, though
not without trials.
Any soul who knows how things came to such a pass,
please hasten, even a single one, to Oomoto and serve Kami .2
In exchange, thanks shall be given to anyone who has really
fulfilled his mission; for he is a Pillar of the Spirit forever. Being
about the whole world's affairs: this is beyond the comprehen-
sion of people however intelligent and learned they may be.
This Plan should not be detected, (but then, people could not
repent for their ignorance). Because this is the one reconstruc-
tion for all time to come, well it may be that the Scheme is very
difficult to understand, except for those who renounce worldly
learning and sagacity to be returned to baby's heart. Only
such shall be made to judge correctly. Kami 's Plan is such a
great enterprise that you shall not be able to begin to under-
stand the truth until you have thoroughly purified your defiled
2Onisaburo had not yet come to Ayabe; he will come in Autumn,1898.
In every country and place in the world shall appear numer-
ous Pillars of the Spirit who are to announce the reconstruc-
tion of the world: they are all working through the Plan of Me,
Ushitora-no-Konjin or Kunitokotachi-no-Mikoto.
Each one of them may think he is doing something, but is
only being guided by Me, Ushitora-no-konjin, because every-
thing is involved in My Plan. This Kami is not one who delights
in His own merits. I want to let any soul take part in the fun-
damental work, if he understands the Plan. Change the way
you have used your mind and heart, and come to Oomoto and
hear the vital points, to be of Divine service.
Beware, every angel3 and entity in greater world! As
streams and brooks babbling down valleys never fail to join a
greater river till at last they are united into one, so is this place
(Ayabe) the pivot where the True Kami resides.
There shall be a war between China and Japan. This shall
be a successful war for this side, being carried out by Me from
behind the Unseen. With the manifestation of Divine Pow-
er, all the credit for it shall go to My side. There shall yet be
another war starting from Russia. And after that there shall be
greater ones. Such events will be the clue to the Divine Plan
from now on.
This world should be the Heavenly Kingdom; I will unify the
entire world and change it into one. The way to achieve that
will be toilsome to the utmost, but fear not becouse the Plan
has been wrought for more than 3,000 years. And I will bring
strength to those leaders who hold high ranks in the world, if
they only begin to understand Me. To tide over this Great Cri-
sis to come, you must be humble and obedient to Kami and
prepared to face whatever troubles and difficulties come. With-
out such an attitude of mind on the part of the people, things
cnnot be achieved. This why I will caution you over and
Crystal-clear ones4 shall be picked through a selection of
spirits;(for you are driven to the last extremity).
Hark! Everyone in the world: repent! The world shall un-
dergo a change. There will occur stupendous affairs. Those
who are too doubtful shall have a warning, which will be an
example to others. Kami will never fail in anything. Skin can be
changed at this very moment, but the soul not so easily. Pol-
ish your souls and reform yourselves. Otherwise, you shall not
know what is going to happen, even under your very eyes.
Never imagine that things will last if the source runs out. As
for a tree, branches as well as twigs will grow as long as the
trunk exists. When the fountain has dried up, can anything last
3Perhaps guardian spirit is meant, or mature and spiritualized men and women
4Individuals whose minds are balanced, who have clear perception, are wise
and active in daily life; ubndirtied, not fouled, unselfish.
As the sun shines but one in the sky, so shall the world be
ruled as one according to Divine Plan. The people of the
world must repent and get prepared! I will restore the world to
the former Divine Kingdom, which shall last forever through
the manifestation of Divine Power. Then, Ushitora-no-Konjin
shall make His appearance as the judge of this world. You
shall see, as it were, the lid of a Jack-in-the-box open. In the
Kingdom of Heaven, those who are sincerely religious shall be
If things woderful and extraordinary should happen in
the world, remember that these are but stepping-stones over
which the Divine Plan is to be carryied by Me, Ushitora-no-
Konjin, for the reconstruction of the world. Global happenings,
when taken into consideration, will throw light upon the Divine
Plan and enable you to repent, indeed. I speak by the mouth
of the faithful on the earth, so gradually My Grace will be made
known. There shall be good eye openers, and evil ones; so
amend your conduct in view of coming events.
When this Kami manifests Himself glouriously, the world
shall be changed into a crystal-clear one,5 so the sooner peni-
tent and converted, the better shall anyone be.
When the world is turned into a crystal-clear one, every-
thing will go well here on earth. Then, those who have crystal-
clear souls, after investigation,6 shall be in His service. Be-
cause Kami will, upon examination, create a bond which unites
Him and those souls which, once knit, will not break; those
souls will be directly endowed with a portion of His Spirit.
5Here, crystal-clear means a world of peace, understanding, universal love
6By Kami, who will look into the sincerity of the individual's heat and then decide
whether he can serve Him or not.
