ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM, greetings. I welcome you, my friends. I thank you for coming. I am with gratitude you are each still fighting the good fight of faith.
ABRAHAM: We have had an ongoing lesson for years on human emotions and behaviors. It is an era on the planet now where anything extreme seems to be popular. This does not always work for emotionalism. It is a highly competitive world and the more your competitors can make you emote, good or bad, the more satisfaction they have in having done their job well.
Jesus was a wonderful example where He would not be carried to extremes with His emotions. He was passionate and logical. He was enthusiastic and yet, thoughtful about the execution of plans. Mortals are an emotional people. I mean not to say don’t have emotions. I mean to say balance them out for the overall good of the Correcting Time. Highly emotional people are looked upon as unstable. To be more effective in furthering Michael’s plan and purpose, we need to lean toward the side of logic. We have always said all along that our way of spirituality is down to earth and logical.
It was so obvious that the Master had no ego to constantly please. He cared not if He was right or wrong in others eyes. His well-rounded faith may have made Him appear harsh at times and yet, it was so logical to the Master that either you had faith or you didn’t. You act upon that which you believe or you don’t. There was not worry about what others may think.
The Master always had an eye single to the glory of God and worried not about trying to sell somebody on some notion. As long as Jesus always put the Father first, then could He have control over His emotions.
Emotions used to be deeply tied to survival and as a show of those who may appear to be most spiritual. I would say at this day and age, emotions on the outside of your close group is not to be completely trusted. The Master knew this full well and still gave individuals numerous chances to change.
The Master, of course, felt pain and more often than not, the mental pain was so much more than the physical. The Master had most of His tearful moments in private and saw the act as a reckoning of mind to the spirit. We want to be taken seriously in the Correcting Time and must remember to not allow our ego to have full reign over our emotions.
Another good point on the Masters behavior is that His emotions were so intact because He had so much trust in Father. He worried not about the next moment. He had the ultimate trust in Father to put Him where He needed to be.
ABRAHAM: This week let us review our levels of emotions. Do we use emotions as a tool to gain sympathy or attention? How serious do our co-workers take us when we are rampant with emotion? That is all for this evening. I realize our lesson is short. We will plan for more next time. Mary sends her best. We both send you with our love. Until next time, Shalom.
