HAM: Greetings, children, I am Ham and I am happy to be here among you this evening.
HAM: Let us discuss the miracle of Christ Michael’s bestowal and the importance of yearly remembrance. It matters not the time of year of his coming or the exact year or location even of his birth. The miracle of Michael’s coming, of his birth as a helpless babe, of his growth and life as a mortal man – these miracles are a permanent and unshakable fact, in fact the central fact of all life upon your world.
The Master’s coming broke the spiritual chains of the past and brought light and truth light years ahead of the prevailing understandings of God and man of that day. The Master’s mission is continuing to bring forth good fruit even now some 2000 years on. It was important at this time to bring to your world a more detailed and accurate portrayal of the Master’s life so that you would have guidance in the understanding of his life. This understanding is the most crucial thing you can know, both as individuals and as a community of the Master’s followers. Understanding Michael is absolutely critical. It is once more important that you do not stumble over his words, that you rather lay hold of his truth in its true essence so that your future may find guidance and comfort in his words and in his life.
Constantly my children you are forced by life’s circumstances to evaluate and to reevaluate your faith, your belief, your purpose, and your relationship with God and with the Son of God. The great mercy of Michael is in his spirit, the comforter. Forever is the Master’s spirit close to your hearts, providing comfort, guidance, and naturally a nudging direction. In a very real personal and spiritual sense, the Master once more stands before you saying, “follow me”. Following him will bring you not a sense of mindless bliss but rather a sense of purpose in service. The Master said, “he who would be greatest among you must be servant to all”. Said he, “the son of man comes not to be served but to serve”. Therefore, those who follow him must find gradually a life in him, in a life of service.
Like his apostles, he asks of you this simple question, “do you love me”. And to your reply, so says he, “then comfort my little ones, feed my sheep, and tend my flocks”. This is the call you have responded to. Each of you has heard the Master’s voice in your lives and each of you is seeking to find greater purpose through finding his purpose, for all of your realize this is the way.
Rejoice then in this season of light. Consecrate your wills and dedicate your purpose to him and his purpose. Just as the apostles were called, so are you called in this day and in this time to bring to life the meaning in the Masters words once more. This is indeed a season of reflection, a season of forgiveness, a season of rejoicing in the knowledge of your sonship or daughtership with God, a knowledge the Master gave his life in order to give you.
The lives you are living are continually renewed through the Master’s spiritual touch, his word, and his voice speaking every gently to your hearts, “this is the way. I am beside you. Fear not”. Rejoice that through his life was revealed the Father’s loving nature so that never again would men look to God in fear, but rather would be able to come to him in love. Rejoice that through the Master’s life fear of death was largely removed as certainty of eternal life was given complete evidence through his resurrection. The Master’s life was greatly guided by his desire to remove fear and especially to remove fear of God from human experience. Forever after, the yardstick for religion measured truth by the content of love. This must ever be your guidance.
Rejoice then my friends. Seek closeness with the Master through prayer and thanksgiving. Rejoice in his live, welcome his familiar spirit, and above all completely reciprocate his live with the highest of your love, your unique human expression of love. Be completely confident that the Master’s spirit is unfailing so that even in your darkest hour his tender blanket of comfort, his personal spirit will cover you giving you strength, hope and courage. At the hour of his birth, all the angels, indeed all the beings in a vast universe rejoiced. As his spirit is reborn in your hearts every day, so too do your angels rejoice and so too does the Father’s spirit smile upon you. What are your questions?
Q: Do you have anything for me this evening?
HAM: : Yes my daughter, of course, you are doing well. Rejoice my dear in friends and family this season. Have peace throughout this time. Have no worries or fears. Simply rest, relax and recuperate your energies for you have much work before you when the time of rest has ended. Rest then and be at peace. You are doing just fine.
Q: Jim has asked for a message please.
HAM: : Yes my daughter.
Son, you are doing well. You are still going through a period of forced rest and this will ultimately be good for your spiritual balance. You are someone who easily gets off balance and so finding a balancing point is important. Once you become confident in maintaining spiritual balance and once this balance is sustained, you will find movement without effort occurring. Right now think about balance as being more important than movement. This will help you.
Q: Ham I’d like to ask if you have anything for me and I would like to thank you for helping me get close to the Master.
HAM: : My son, you are doing well. Be at peace for you too must find your way to a sustainable balance. You also have a tendency to get off balance and then do things that aggravate that imbalance without thinking. Do not try to control so much. Do not try to fix your feelings before you experience them fully. Consider that there are truths within you that are seeking to be acknowledged and understood. If you always push them away for fear of the pain they might cause you, then you will not move through the emotional- spiritual tension that develops. Do not move away from truth, however painful that truth might seem to be at first. You are doing just fine my son.
Q: Do you have anything for Rebecca?
HAM: : Yes my daughter, you are doing well. You are finding a great deal of spiritual strength through your reliance on the Master’s hand. Remain close to his word and you will be fine. During this season, rejoice in his love. Follow in his footsteps and enter the doors he opens for you while gracefully turning from those doors he may close. Rejoice my daughter in this season of love.
HAM: : My son Jarad, you do well. You are also talking things over with the Master in a purely personal way and this is as it should be. Grasp his hand and let him lead you forward. He will lead you always toward himself. Understand this, and your way is secure.
Q: Ham do you have a message for me tonight?
HAM: : Yes my dear, you are doing just fine. In this time of family gathering, reflect on the meaning of family in its larger sense. The Master said, who is my brother, who is my sister. And by this he means, the true meaning of family is spiritual. The true meaning of community and hope in the future comes through his love and his spirit. You are then, the Master’s sister as well as his daughter. This is the true intimacy of Christ’s relationship to each person. Follow this relationship and let it blossom even more in your life through the season and beyond. His hand is extended to you always in the spirit and so in the spirit is where you must meet him to grasp his hand. Do this my daughter and your way is secure.
Q: Do you have message for Neil?
HAM: : Yes my son, you are doing very well. Do not make more of your spiritual struggle than need be. Truly the way of the spirit is simple. Truly the way of the spirit is easy. Truly the way of the spirit lies in surrendering as much as the grasping of his hand. Right now you are searching for deeper meaning and I say to you, you will find it and you will find it through Christ’s spirit for in this you will find his purpose for you. The Master said many times, let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid for these human fears and troubles can overwhelm the gentle speaking of the spirit. Seek for that spirit in love. Follow him and all is well.
Q: Do you have a personal message for Charlie B?
HAM: : My son, you do very well. Deepen your understanding and commitment to the Master’s spirit through the grateful appreciation of all the love surrounding you in this life. As you eyes become opened, love is more and more evident everywhere. Be at peace then.
Q: Do you have any feedback for me this week?
HAM: : Of course my son, you are doing just fine. In all things, cleave closely to Michael’s spirit. Draw his spirit over you as a comfort. Nestle as a babe in his arms, for truly his spirit has been sent to comfort you who are heavy laden. Place your burdens in his arms. Rest your head upon his shoulder. Allow his spirit to refresh your soul. You will have all that is needful and all that is required for the tasks he sets before you. Recognize those tasks. Renew your commitment to his purpose and all will be well.
HAM: Are there any further questions at this time? Very well then my friends. Relax and enjoy this spirit of the season. Love your neighbors with renewed purity and confidence. As always, my love and my prayers are with you. Until next week, farewell.
