I wonder if the messenger needs to be physical. There have been a lot of
changes in the consciousness of humanity in the last 10 years or so. Russia,
Berlin Wall etc. The upsurge in New Age writings and groups have been
tremendous. I have heard talk of Jesus being back on the 5th dimension or
the invisible realm, anyway. Maybe this time the upliftment is coming from
the next spiritual dimension, whatever that may be, and some are expecting
to be physically transformed to meet up with the messenger in that plane.
