In a statement of enormous clarity, God has revealed to humanity the cause of all of its dysfunction.

“All behaviors are created by beliefs,” God said in the book The New Revelations. Even “automatic reactions” are based on what you believe is occurring, is about to occur, or could occur, He said. All behaviors are sponsored by beliefs.

“You cannot make a long-term change in behaviors without addressing the beliefs that underlie them,” God said, and then repeated the statement, because the brevity of that statement belies its importance. You cannot make a long-term change in behaviors without addressing the beliefs that underlie them.

Then God offered a fascinating insight into world events in the 21st Century. “Those societies that are now causing, and that have historically caused, the most upheaval in your world are those societies that have focused on beliefs,” She said.

“Most humans try to change things by focusing on behaviors. They keep thinking they can make things better by doing something. So, everyone is running around trying to figure out what they can do. The focus is on doing something, rather than on believing something.

“But radical forces within your societies have always sought to change things by using the power of thought, not action, for they know that thought produces action. Get a person thinking a certain way and you can get a person to act a certain way. It is not easily done the other way around.”

God offered killing as an example. You can rarely get a person to go out and kill another person simply by telling him to do so, the Deity said. You have to give him a reason. And “reason” exists only in thought. And thought is always based in Belief. So, if you want to get one person to kill another, the fastest way to do that is to give him a belief that supports the action, and can sponsor it.

One such belief, God said, might be that killing is what God wants, that it is doing the Will of God, and that one will be rewarded in heaven for doing it.

“That could be a very powerful belief, a very powerful incentive. And so, while most of the world is seeking to bring about change by telling people what to DO, those who truly know how to motivate people are bringing about change by telling people what to believe. Do you get it?”

God’s statement concluded with this observation: “Your world is facing enormous problems right now, and you must solve the problems at the level of belief. You cannot solve the problems at the level of behavior. Seek to change beliefs, not behaviors. After you change a belief, the behavior will change by itself. You can take whatever action you want to take to alter someone else’s behavior or to stop it, but unless you alter the beliefs that produced such behavior, you will alter nothing and stop nothing.
