Third Edition

Although the free and unrestricted omnipotence shall never fail, if the minds of all of you do not understand, it shall never be realized.

When all of you equally become convinced of it, I, Tsukihi, will assuredly save you.

What do you think this salvation is? I will save her so that she will be able to go out of doors in three days.


My omnipotence can never fail, but all of you fail to accept this in your minds.

When all of you accept My words, I, Tsuki-Hi, shall certainly guarantee your salvation.

What do you think this salvation really is? The afflicted will be able to leave their beds in three days.

11:14–16 There is no error in My free and unlimited protection. The suffering of your body is a manifestation of the mind that does not have any understanding of My talks. Once all of you understand My intention, self-reflect, and follow My intention, I guarantee to surely save you from your physical suffering. If you ask what kind of salvation this is to be, it is a salvation that will take place swiftly by the third day that will go out due to My free and unlimited protection.
