Weekly Message for Sunday, April 20, 2003

                     LUKE 34 And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." And they cast lots to divide his garments. 35 And the people stood by, watching; but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!" 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him vinegar, 37 and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" 38 There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews." 39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!" 

The complete statement that Jesus made was, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do."  The ancients in Jesus' time were fairly primitive in their thinking and their beliefs, giving power to the religious and political leaders of the age.  Most of them believed in two gods .. God and the Devil ... Good and Evil ... Heaven and Hell ... Life and Death.  This belief in duality continues today and most of us walk around with so much of this in our consciousness we continually struggle to experience love and joy consistently in our lives.

           We do not manifest prosperity because we live in fear of poverty.  We do not manifest loving companionship because we live in fear of loneliness.  We do not manifest health and vitality because we fear illnesses and have made doctors and prescription drugs our gods.  We cannot remain at peace for long because we continue to believe in the lie ... rather than the Truth.  Far too many of us continue to believe that life after death somehow ends our struggles ... but ... death has no power ... Life is where the power Is ... for God Is Life ... Life Lives ... and it is in realizing this Living Presence of God in our lives ... that we "loose" the fear and therefore "lose" the experiences that are not of God ... or Good.  We don't have to struggle ... we don't have to fight ... we just have to "know what we are doing."  What are we giving power to?   Who are we giving power to?  If it is not God ... then it is not Good.

          The Master Jesus did save Himself ... He knew that His Life was God.  God does not die.  In the realization that God Is the Only Power and the Only Presence ... Jesus knew that death, poverty, illness ... were a lie.  Jesus knew that no matter how powerful the religious and political leaders were perceived as being ... their power was an illusion caused by fear.  "Fear not little flock, for it is the Father's Good pleasure to give you the kingdom."  The kingdom is Life ... Eternal and Ever-Lasting ... in demonstrating Truth ... Jesus saved Himself ... and you and me ... if we choose to believe Him.


 And So It Is! 
Letting Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
