ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I am so pleased to be witness to your taking on new responsibilities as a worker in the Kingdom and Correcting Time. Our time now is spent in utilizing these lessons we have learned over the many years we have been together. I can see how the world is on the brink of many changes and we have individuals like you that are having to facilitate those changes.
ABRAHAM: I can see how spiritual and material ideas pull at you, especially when time has not been made to sit in stillness. It is up to each one of us to strengthen our own spiritual muscles. You have plenty of material to study and become strengthened to freely move about in the world. Your support here of one another also is a reminder of our Mission’s focus. During the next few months we will be more involved in social issues. Each time one of you steps into a crowd, you are representative of Michael’s spirit and have access to His wisdom and words.
MARY: I am MARY. My greetings to you also. I believe that I admired the Master so much for His problem-solving abilities. I know that living in the everyday drama of life we can be driven to distraction and simple problems become magnified. The Master could logically look at an issue and see the problem for what it really was. For instance, there was a time when the group of us were to go out and minister to the multitudes and there was arguments among us over which individuals we would desire to speak to.
There were many in the crowd, men, women, children, wealthy and poor, as well as the sick and afflicted. Some of the inexperienced among us wanted to have time with more discussion and less serving or menial work. The older apostles had taken the issue to the Master and explained the seeming upset in assignment among the group. I had wanted to have experience with the more spiritually polished individuals because they seemed to be a more advanced group.
The Master had called us together and had literally broken down the problem for us by creating a chart of sorts in the sand. The Master showed us the real root of the problem was we had become more concerned with our own credit than the true focus of the ministry.
We were more interested in what we could receive, rather than give. Most of us had no idea how limited our time was with the Master or I do believe we would have made the most of our short time.
When we do have problems they are easily magnified by how we picture ourselves becoming affected. When we can break down a problem and see it for what it really is, then it is much simpler to work toward a solution. The Master had us look at our issue in this way—instead of worrying about who was going to minister to who—how about we allow Father to minister us and then He dispersed the group? We were each there with a common message and found a place to become useful. The crowds were definitely energized and enthusiastic for the good news to start becoming a reality.
That day I kept my eyes open for the possibilities that Father would be ministering to me, even though I was there to work. I had many experience with many different types of individuals, even men and that was uncommon for a woman of that day and age. The apostles found that they had received a true blessing and ministering to their spirit. We could look at the Master and see Him as this complicated being with so many facets of His personality, when in reality He shows us simplicity so we can have a clear focus on what our real purpose is.
When we are confronted with problems make your line in the sand, put the issues out to observe. What is your criteria for problems solving? What problem solving skills have we learned throughout our spiritual career? You are each trained to go among the multitudes and be a source of good news, a source of peace. Many individuals appreciate your love for truth and will count on it in these years to come. Remember that we are in the middle of change and will not see the results until we come out through the other side.
MARY: I am love filled being here with you this evening and I hope you know that we are both available should you have need. Perhaps next time we will have a few questions. As for this evening, we shall take our leave. Know that we are in appreciation for your continuous striving to become better, to help when and where you can. Our love goes with you. Go in peace. Until next time, shalom.
