all about Hope!

Hello. Today we want to talk with you about hope...hope in your fellow man/woman. Do you know and understand that everyone of you make up the Body of Christ? Did you know that everyone of you is a spark from God's light? If you truly know this, then why do you treat your fellow man/woman as if they are something foreign and not a part of your Sacred Body? Did you know that only until you accept and love your brothers and sisters will you have peace? You cannot have peace within if you harbor deep seeded resentments and grudges. By doing this you are saying to God, ' I do not recognize my brother/sister and I am not accepting them as a part of me or as a part of you'. If you cannot recognize them, then you cannot recognize your True Self! 1 Corinthians 12 is a good place to start if you want to begin understanding the true body that you just so happen to belong to. The great thing about God and Spirit is that even if you don't believe, it still exists as such!!!

We want to go further into this discussion and address what happens when the body fails. When someone that you have put your faith and trust in appears to fail you, do you get angry and wash your hands of that person? Some of you do. Do you lose your trust in that person? Some of you do. Do you reject them as if you never knew them? Some of you do. If you are the hand and that person is the leg and they stumble and the body falls, do you get angry and sever the leg from the rest of the body? Some of you try. Did you know that you cannot sever what is truely whole and made by God? Did you know that if you do not face the situation and show forgiveness and acceptance, you will have to work this out in spirit form? God doesn't change the creation of the whole because you get angry at the leg! What is whole will remain whole for eternity and nothing you do can ever change that! If the leg stumbles, reach down and brace the body from further injury! If the leg bends too far, help the body brace it and pull it back in place. Do you understand? We are telling you to help, not hurt. When you reject a person, you are rejecting a part of yourself. When you hurt a person, you are hurting a part of yourself.

What would happen if you decided to not lose your hope for a person in trouble or struggling with a difficult situation? What if you prayed for them and sent them love? Don't you think the whole body would feel this and amplify that energy and intent you are sending? Do not lose your hope. For in doing this you begin to lose sight of the Light that resonates in all things. Ephesians 4:4 'There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one HOPE of your calling'. We believe it was Christ himself who directed you to "Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not and you shall not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37. As Christ said, it is easy to love those that love you, but it is loving everyone (especially the ones who hate you) that makes you perfect like God. Stand strong and do not lose your hope in your fellow man/woman. For as you embrace the whole, you are embracing God and yourself. Do not be dismayed and forlorn. You all struggle to learn your lessons, but this is part of the course. Life on Earth is a school and we ask you to please stop having meltdowns when you or your brother or sister doesn't pass the first time. Guess what? God is so amazing, you get to take that same lesson over and we love you as you do it!

We ask you today, please reach out and help someone. Please be understanding and non-judgmental. Please forgive and release grudges. Please love yourselves and others. These are such simple things to say but hard at times to accomplish. Be bigger than your physical body and your ego! Remember, you are simply passing thru and learning as you go. How easy or how hard is up to you. Remember, the kingdom of God is within you, so act as if you believed it so....
