ABRAHAM:  I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. It is wonderful to see many of you experience true joy. We are learning that joy is a necessary part of living. The real meaning of joy is when you can feel the presence of Father in a given situation. Humor is nice and indeed an outlet, but joy is when you are with faith that Father is really there and working in your life. We all know that there must be a balance in mortal living, work, play and rest, yes and sometimes joy requires work. When you have labored for something meaningful the reward is a living energy that we can call joy.

I can see how you have released some of your menial attachments. You are finding out what is truly important in this life. If Jesus were to live on the earth today in the flesh how would we perceive Him? He would be a wanderer. He would be someone who puts value on heavenly things rather than earthly. He would take time for His fellows and bring comfort to those who have ailments in mind, body and spirit. Were we to cross His path would we even look at Him? Would Jesus wear a three-piece suit, drive a Ferrari, or live in a modern condo? The Jesus that you have learned about for so long – what would His presence look like if He were to set foot on the earth today? What would be His priorities?

We could say He always waited upon the word of the Father. He waited until His hour had come. He worked to provide for His family. He took time to have play with brothers and sisters. He loved to learn and discover interests in science and geography. Jesus also loved to get to know individuals and find out how the human mind was shaped. I believe that it would be that type of individual that would be here if He could live in the flesh on Urantia. He still has those wonderful qualities. His life was more good than bad—more positive than negative. He had pain but He was willing to endure for the pain was fleeting, but Father’s Kingdom is forever.

It is interesting to view the economic status of the entire world right now. Individuals are finding they cannot buy meaning and values. True joy is the outcome of understanding meanings and values. Spiritual connection while working this earthly life is building a road to knowing real joy—that feeling that puts you beside yourself and for the moment have tremendous ‘awe’ for our Father.

This time let us think about Jesus as a man here on the Earth today. What does He look like? What is His occupation? What are his interests? What might you have in common with Him personality-wise? Find the answer to the question—‘Did Jesus have attachments?’ What were moments that you have read about where He may have had moments of attachment and then released it to the Father?


ABRAHAM:   Our lesson is short this evening, but we are inclined to continue your Christmas celebration with you. I want you to know that as I think about the Master I can see Him in each one of you. Take time to find genuine restful peace this season and allow joy to well up within you. Find time every day to count your blessings and we’ll have further discussion next time. Know that Mary and I send you with our unending love. Go in peace. Until next time, Shalom.
