…Acceptance (Acknowledgment/Tolerance) Take whatever comes as from My hand! (I:141) Everybody wants to be accepted, nobody wants to feel or be treated like an outcast, but those who have decided to follow Me are never really going to be fully accepted by the System, no matter what they do... (I:289) The key to being happy is to accept that what I want for you is truly best, and in wanting what I want. (II:577) Focusing more on that common goal than any differences or difficulties in getting along should help give you an incentive to break the ice and show greater acceptance, greater understanding of folks and what they're going through. (III:23) Why not just accept everybody for who they are? (III:26) You need to grow in love, tolerance, acceptance and forgiveness of others, having more faith in them, and positive expectations. (III:84) When you can accept and truly embrace the lowest of the low and let them know you're one of them or they're one of yours, that you consider that there is no difference between you, but they're equally loved by Me as you are, then you've become real. (III:123) What matters is that you accept your path, and not try to walk someone else's path. Once you've accepted your path and you realize that the suffering is nothing strange about it, but that it belongs, and that it just serves to eradicate the impurities, you'll also find yourself of greater service to My people, and find that there will be those who'll receive your healing, your message, your sacrifice... just as there were those who did receive Me; those who make it worth it all. (III:247) Acceptance is a great key in communications: accepting somebody for who and what they are without prejudice. (III:331) The confusion that is coming in the world will straighten the path for greater acceptance of My simplicity, clarity and truth. (III:428)

The sooner you learn to make Me your Master or to accept Me as such, the smoother the ride is going to be in the long run. And that includes allowing Me to determine which things are good for you, and which aren’t, and in what amounts; learning to trust Me with that and coping with the fact that you’ll have to leave the proportions, distribution and measures of life’s pleasures in My hands. (III:450) If you can accept your oddness and strangeness as a means for Me to keep you humble and happy, maybe then you can live with it better. (III:453) How about acceptance instead of rejection? How about trusting Me for what I bring along, as ugly and weird as it may seem? (III:488) How can you ever teach others better unless you first show love for them in the first place, and acceptance of their howbeit so very different ways? You’ve got to give them a chance to accept and get to know and absorb and assimilate My ways! (III:498) Only accept what you find if you can find and see Me in it! (III:501) Make room for tolerance and acceptance of the ways of those around you! You’ve got to trust that it is Me putting on their hearts what they should do, just as I’m putting it on your heart what you should do. (III:503) Sometimes you’ve just got to accept and take what I’m giving you, even if it may not be exactly your “style.” (III:535) That’s how many theories, some of which are the basis for man’s knowledge today came into being: A lot depends on what the majority or key people will accept and choose to accept as truth or not. (III:562) You’ve got to make room for some acceptance and tolerance of other people’s wavelengths and preferences. (III:573) You don’t have to take and accept everything the devil, or even life itself, hands you. Sometimes you’ve got to have the grace and the ability to say, “No, thank you!” (IV:18) It’s your own choice whether you want to be happy or not. It basically depends on whether you cheerfully, thankfully and praise-fully accept what I’m handing you, or not, and instead consider that you’d have known and done better than I. (IV:33) You have to accept the fact that most of what’s going on, when it comes to Me and My Power, is way beyond the scope and capacity of the carnal mind…

That’s the difference between supposed godhood, the kind the devil offered, which declares the human mind as supreme, and true Godhood, such as offered by Me through your acceptance and reception of My Word, My Divinity, My Spirit and Salvation. (IV:54) I want you to learn to accept others the way they are, and try to sympathize with them, and relate to them, even if their interests differ strongly from yours. I want you to accept and tolerate them the same way you would wish to be accepted by them. (IV:78) I’m literally having to allow this world to die in order for it to become desperate enough to finally accept and welcome My return to reclaim My own. (IV:85) It’s not always good to accept every temptation and commodity that comes your way, as experience will tell you. Sometimes it’s wisest to be able to say, “No, thank you!” (IV:182) I’m not saying that there is never a time to point out the ugly truth. But it’s a lot easier for people to accept what you have to say if you wrap it up in a positive packaging. (IV:216) Just as the brain initiates any action that your hands are going to take, or any movement your legs and feet are going to make in a certain direction, so the Spirit World is the initiator of what’s happening in the physical realm, where the initial impulse meets upon the human relays and switch-points, waiting for the individual reactions of either accepting and processing the impulse, or rejecting it, and thus action in the physical realm is born. (IV:237) Accepting people for what they are and taking them where they’re at will enable you to have a much better and more open relationship with them. (IV:263) Can you accept and say ‘yes’ to My system of values and doing things? (IV:271) I know your frame, and if I can live with the state you’re in and accept and love you the way you are, then you should, too. (IV:346)

If you don’t feel very lovable, then just consider it an even greater joy that I am able to love and accept you fully and totally as you are! (IV:403) It’s not so much who or what you are in worldly terms, but accepting what you’ve been given and making the most of it. (IV:432)

The proof of real love is more often manifested in the tolerance for and acceptance of the differences between you. (IV:464) Whatever it is that I’m bringing across your path and whatever I put on your slate: let it sink in deeply ! You can trust it, that it’s good for you, even if initially it may taste bitter at times… This is for your good. Accept it! (IV:493) Every man, woman and child has the power to change their own perception, manifested in some form of saying “yes” to Me, instead of “no,” accepting, instead of rejecting Me and My truth in whichever shape or form it knocks on their door. (IV:535)

I want you to have the faith that even though you might not be able to make it in the natural, I can make it through you, and acknowledge that if it’s going to be done, then because of Me. (11:39) Just taking it is what life’s challenge is sometimes all about. When you can take it in spite of your own reservations, doubts and skepticism, chances are that you’re going to make it. (11:53)

Maybe I’m just trying to get a little but more tolerance for suffering out of you, just a little more endurance, than you thought you were capable of. It might come in handy one day, to be able to put up with a little bit more… (11:55) One of life’s big lessons is to learn to show patience and tolerance for the weaker, the slower, the less developed and advanced, and treat them in the proper way without getting all impatient or self-righteous toward them. (11:68) Learning to accept the circumstances is not really a challenge when you’ve chosen the easy path. So, if the circumstances are adverse and tough, that’s an ideal opportunity to accept the challenge and learn to rise above. (11:97)

Learn to accept each new situation and adapt to whatever comes with it! (11:102) Recognizing and accepting the truth gives you greater peace within. (2015:160) One’s got to take, accept and handle whatever life brings. (2016:3)

Having to go through the lessons to learn from mistakes made, or ungodly behavior, I’m afraid you’re just going to have to accept it and deal with it. It may be a toughie you’re having to go through right now, but trust Us that it’ll serve its purpose, and you’ll understand it and accept it some day, maybe when We’ll show you what things would have become like without any correction from Above. (2016:12) Just take things the way they come! Doing it without complaining is one of the arts of life. (2016:13) Take it, whatever comes, and learn how to handle it the best you can! (2016:22) Learning a bit of tolerance and acceptance of – especially children’s – faults is part of learning love. (2016:26) Keep your mind close to Me and Our heavenly Home, and let it bring forth in you the joy that will also attract others and will want them to accept that offer I made through My sacrifice on Earth, and the Father’s! (2016:36) Learn to take and accept things as they come, continuing to trust Me and the Father that We know what We allow to happen to Our folks on Earth! Take the bad things and incidents by faith, trusting that We know what We allow! (2016:38) Don’t try to make it on your own, but accept the fact that those days are over! (2016:41) Take things the way they come! Acceptance of what life has to bring is part of the yieldedness. (2016:42) Only things happen that are allowed by Us for a purpose and reason! So, accept whatever comes, and take it through your trust and faith in Us! (2016:45) Pass on to others the aspect and vision that there’s Something Better coming up for those who accept the message from Above! (2016:46) The ability to resist negative conditions and circumstances and see the positive in spite of them may be comparatively rare, but something necessary, if you want to be successful in inspiring others to accept your faith… Have some faith in what you can’t see? – At the moment? If so, you’re what folks need to see – with the right kind of attitude and actions, accordingly – in order to accept what you believe in, even if they – or you – can’t see it in the physical right now! (2016:49) Accepting others the way they are – trusting and knowing that changes will come eventually, according to Our pace from Above – is one of the patterns of love, instead of expecting perfection, which nobody down there should be expected to show forth. So, include acceptance into that list of the qualities of love you need, and let it overcome the tendencies toward self-righteousness! (2016:50) The ultimate step of pride is accepting the attitude of one being their own “god,” while humility is what enables folks to accept the fact that there is a higher One, Who’s truly the Creator. Love and humility are fruits of the Truth from Above, while hatred and pride the results of the place below founded by its creator, and what the world is unfortunately going to accept the rulership of for some time, to teach mankind the ultimate lesson about good vs. evil, truth vs. lies, pride vs. humility, etc. (2016:53) What you need to learn is to resist those influences of evil on you! – Not accept or tolerate some of its influences! There’s no excuse for that, even though you accept some of the circumstances around you as an excuse or reason for it. (2016:56)

Whose student and follower are you going to be? One of the founder of trouble through selfish behavior, or Mine, Who came to give His Life to those on Earth who’d accept Me as the Father’s gift of Salvation from the results of selfish deeds, acts and behavior? (2016:57) To take whatever comes in a victorious attitude is one of the key points of the lessons of life. – To learn to take it whichever way it comes. Whatever comes, accept it as from Me! (2016:76) Take chastisement as a positive you know you deserve, so, accept it and receive it as something to make more of the type of person out of you I want you to be! (2016:80) Accept the fact that We accept you the way you are, and all We’re concerned about is how We’ll manage to help you make it through it that’s coming! (2016:83) Try to take sufferings with a bit of grace and accept them as a necessary procedure to teach you some important lessons you will be able to benefit from and appreciate when the school bell rings! (2016:91)

What My followers and believers need especially, is the acceptance of the fact that they have to dare to be different than the average type… that that’s the way I made and allowed them to become. (2016:101) Just be ready to take what comes, whichever way it comes! (2016:105) Whatever’s your fate and your task, just try to take it as cheerfully as possible, and trust your divine Masters for knowing what They’re doing! Wouldn’t that be part of faith? Not just accepting Their existence, but also trust’em that They know what They’re doing or allowing to happen? (2016:110) Accept challenges as strengthening procedure! (2016:129) Acceptance of others – no matter what state they’re in – is part of love… a great and important one. Why not just accept what has come to you as something you deserved as well as needed? (2016:135) Faith will turn out to be an asset of the acceptance of a higher form of existence than the physical one. (2016:142) When it comes down to following your Shepherd instead yourself… your own ideas… it still takes a lot more yieldedness, acceptance and recognition of who your master is. (2016:143) In a world run by the flesh and carnal efforts, it’s an act of faith to place your actions, works and deeds into the Realm of the Spirit, and you just can’t expect popularity from the masses around you, nor acceptance from your fellow-humans observing you. (2016:146) The dark times coming will draw the line between those who accept the faith and hope you have to offer, and the alternative of temporal, material wealth the devil in person will offer to those receiving his mark! (2016:156) The acceptance you expect of others, of what you’ve got to offer, you yourself have to come up with as well, for what We’ve still got to offer you, along with accepting the heavenly counsel you receive, and not let your mind steer you into its own conclusions and making sense of things in its own efforts. Sometimes things just have to be taken the way they are, and in a case like yours and other believers, taken with the advantage of the ability to avail yourself of the Heavenly Help offered to you in Our knowledge, that there’s just no chance to make it through what’s coming without It. (2016:180) Putting up with things you don’t naturally jibe with and consider “correct” or “normal” is one of those things you have to learn to cope with in order to become tolerable for those around you! The humility of considering yourself a bigger mess than whatever you see around you might just become the key to make you acceptable in your fellow-humans’ eyes. (2016:186) Learn to become flexible, adjustable and accepting whatever is before you as the reality you have to deal with! Yes, life has been easier… but what’s ahead of you and the world will be a lot tougher, and you just have to accept the fact that the easy times are over. (2016:189) Acceptance of others’ differences is a good and creative factor of unity. (2016:190) Believing is more important than seeing and only accepting as reality what your eyes can perceive! (2016:194) Can you accept the thorns on the roses and the burning heat of the light of fire? Can you deal with and handle what strikes you as negative by accepting it as a challenge? – A sense and purpose to strengthen your faith? (2016:196) Trust Me that the ability to handle and accept the truth is an advantage! (2016:199) Sometimes they’re other factors I see as more important for you to grab hold of, like patience, acceptance of others… not just the worries of how you’ll make it through the physical process of life. If We’re accepting folks’ weaknesses, don’t you think it’s something you should learn, too? (2016:201) The incapacity of some to put up any fight against the downrightly manifested evil right before them is hard to take… but then… it also seems to show that they have a greater capacity to take things and accept them as they are, especially when coming from their own kids… one of the special features of mothers’ love. (2016:202) You can see what it does to the kids to become spoiled and just used to the sort of foods they crave. So, they need some different examples, of grownups who take and accept whatever life has to offer. (17:5) Ungodly behavior should keep you in a humble enough position, attitude and state of mind to accept the input of others around you, even if they might not have that connection with, or even faith in Me. (17:8)

Accepting what’s before you also means to cope with the evil going on all around you. Not accepting it per se, but learning how to deal with and handle it. One’s got to accept the fact that a world run by the devil just can’t be Heaven on Earth. (17:13)

Maybe one of your main lessons is to take whatever comes and make the best you manage of it. (17:25) Knowing that you can’t make it without Me will become part of the utter reality for you, and I’m just getting you closer to the state of the ability to accept that. In times to come, the process you’re having to go through will be understood and fully accepted. It makes Me happy to still have some of My special chosen ones around down there, even if it’s as tough for unbelievers to accept them, just as it was for folks around My early disciples to accept them. Acceptance and reception of My followers and God’s children will result in Salvation from hell for them, so, remember that your walk through that darker getting world has a sense and purpose for many others. How they receive you is how they’d receive Me. (17:51) Not feeling at home down there may not be what you want or like, but maybe it'll help you put My will and the Father's for you first in your life, or at least get to the stage of accepting it, and yielding to what We allow to happen, knowing by faith that We know what We're permitting. (17:58) I know it would be more pleasant for you if things were easier, but... see: you've just got to learn to take things the way they come! - A lesson of acceptance! And trust Me and the Father that We know what we're allowing to come before you! Take'em, those adversities and difficult and tough stretches! Accept it as from Us, and yield to it accordingly! (17:59) You’ve got the humility to accept whatever I and the Father allow to happen to you? (17:61) Just become a good - or better - taker of what life’s handing you! Take and accept it as something We know what We’re allowing, and thus, it couldn’t be all that bad for you in the long run, no matter how bad it may seem temporarily! Crucifixion looked like an obvious defeat to those around Me, one they didn’t expect, even though I had told them… but that’s one grand example of accepting those tough challenges before you. They may result in something no one would have expected, such as My resurrection three days later, and along with that, continued life in spirit for those who believe in Me when hit by death of the flesh. (17:66) Things could always be worse, and they eventually will be, but you’ve just got to learn to take things the way they come. I know, for men it’s usually easier when they can be the boss themselves, but if it’s not easy, couldn’t that be one of the challenges I put before you? Learn how to deal with and accept the humbling events? And to take whatever life brings… well, it is a challenge, I know… So, how about that effort and making it a goal to accept and take it, no matter how hard it comes? Can you take it, whatever life brings? - Accept what I set before you? Learn to accept what comes! (17:70) If you don’t know what the day brings, well… just take whatever comes! And whatever comes, accept it through faith that it comes from Me, even if it has battles and trials attached to it that are supposed to raise up your strength again! - Your spiritual strength. (17:75) Taking and accepting things the way they come without getting upset about them, that’s one of the lessons of the School of Life. Learn a bit more of acceptance of things and others’ acts and behavior around you that you need to learn to put up with and not let them have a negative influence and effect on you! Acceptance that others are different is just one of the lessons of life. Part of taking things and folks the way they come… the way We’ve allowed them to be or even made them. Can you do that? Accept what your Creator’s made? Keep the apparently negative incidents in a more positive groove of acceptance! Take whatever comes as something from Someone Who knows what He’s doing and allowing for a certain reason! (17:78) Getting to know how to jibe and get along with folks, even if they’re acting a bit different than what you’re used to, is just part of that learning to get along with others. It’s called acceptance and tolerance. And it’s a part of love! Heavenly love includes heavenly understanding and acceptance… Just as the Father and I accept you and anyone ready to accept Us. So, the more acceptance you’ll sow, the more of it you’ll also reap! And it means, not looking at folks’ faults and mistakes so much, but beyond them, with a bit of that hope coming from Me telling you that I can manage to make something better out of you than you have been, and are. Putting up with folks’ habits to do things differently is part of accepting differences in being and acting, as well as thinking and feeling. Accepting differences means openness. So, to “open up your heart” includes the readiness to accept the differences in others. When it comes down to love, remember acceptance! - An important part of it! (17:82)

Acceptance is a big mode of Mine, if you look at Me accepting folks like Matthew as a disciple, whom the others wouldn’t have even considered, or Judas, My own traitor, or visiting Scribes and Pharisees My disciples wouldn’t have recommended to do, either. So, if My wave was one of acceptance, in spite of whatever differences, and you want to be a follower of Mine, you’ve got to get to get into that groove of “acceptance despite difference” as well. See the factor of acceptance and learning to take others a bit more the way they are as a positive feature of adaptability! Make the gear of acceptance part of your personality! Better than rejection… since that’s what I expect from folks who will want to get Up Here where I and My believers are: reception of Me, and thus acceptance of My different teachings from the world’s, whereas rejection of what I came to offer is pretty much one of the top negatives. So, keep learning to put up with the differences of others, and see what you can learn from them! (17:85) So there are some troubled times to come, but what else can be expected of you, apart from learning just to take’em and accept whatever life has to offer you with the challenge for you to make the effort to make the best you can out of it? If “all you need is love,” remember that patience and acceptance are part of it! If circumstances and conditions are becoming tougher to handle, just accept that as part of the preparation process for the toughest to come! Acceptance primarily means accepting, tolerating and receiving whatever your Creator deems fit to come upon you. Now, that requires faith, I admit… but wasn’t that the important thing of it all? (17:91) Life’s not a piece of cake. But so it wasn’t for Me, nor too many of My true followers. So, just take it, accept it by faith whichever way it comes! (17:93) Take the challenges as something from My hand, and as from Above, not as something to murmur and complain about! (17:98)

Learning to handle the times and conditions as they come is part of acceptance. Acceptance of the fact that I and the Father know what We’re doing and allowing, even if it strikes some - if not most - folks as far from perfect. Take and accept whatever you see, feel and experience around you the best you can! That’s a step of getting onto My wavelength, since acceptance of the way others are is an important part of that unconditional love that makes you even capable of loving your enemies - the one thing I preached and lived that’s one of the toughest for My followers to adhere to. (17:101)

I had to come to bring Salvation to free and save folks from hell on Earth and thereafter. Providing they’d choose to accept that alternative by faith. Constantly seeking pleasure, fun and entertainment just might lead to acceptance of what the enemy has to offer, just as he always did. Since many didn’t accept Me as their Savior, they already basically made the choice for the enemy, to accept him when he comes to “save” them from the world’s disastrous state… (17:102) You’re going to have to learn how to handle folks around you and to accept them the way We accept you! (17:104) Remember acceptance as one of the great assets! Not criticism, much less self-righteousness, but merciful acceptance instead! (17:109) The emphasis of the Spirit World gets you to the point where you recognize and accept Its superiority. Remember acceptance as a part of love, the greatest commandment! (17:113) The devil attacks My supposed believers and followers the most, in order to make them turn out sickening in their behaviors to the extent that no one can accept the teachings they’re supposedly following. (17:117) Don’t see life’s challenges as a negative, but accept them as a positive from Me, believing and trusting that I know what I’m doing! Giving My will and Plan for you a higher priority than your own desires and ways of looking at things should also help you to strengthen the acceptance of My will to stick to your job in your life down there, instead of complaining about it. Accepting life as it is belongs to that acceptance clause, and it’s important that you accept My will for you above your own. (17:118)

Stick to Our point of view, and definitely don’t accept the enemy’s! (17:119) Get ready to handle whatever comes! Take it and accept it! (17:120) To learn to take life as it comes is one of the major lessons of life. I know, it takes faith to accept what I’ve been allowing, but see it as part of the necessary preparation for not just uneasy times, but the toughest and hardest ones of all of history! Accepting folks as they are with all their weaknesses - even if those make it a lot tougher on you temporarily - is part of the important lessons of life. Acceptance of how things and folks are and putting up with their negative traits, well, it’s something you should be learning from the Father and Me.

Accepting others’ faults is a sign of humility, as opposed to self-righteous pride. (17:126) Take it by faith that We Up Here know what We’re doing and allowing to happen to you and confront you with down there! (17:129)

One thing you need to learn, realize and keep in mind about the circumstances I’m allowing you to be confronted with, is that, if I’m allowing them - even if they’re not from My hand, but work of the enemy’s bunch, they’re what I need you to be confronted with in order to learn from them, grow stronger through them, and thus just accept them as what I’m allowing to face you in life for a divine sense and purpose! So, accept’em! Amen? Take life’s circumstances as life’s challenge! If the weather’s colder than you like, and the sky darker, take it as a manifestation of the dark and cold forces taking over the globe! Learn to deal with it, handle it and accept it as part of My Plan for you of things you’ve still got to learn! (17:130) The less you lean on the strength of the flesh, the more accepting you become of the fact that you need Help from Above. (17:131)

The big test of faith is to just be ready for whatever… whether life or death… whatever comes… just be ready to accept it! If We can handle you whichever way you come, maybe you can handle life whichever way it comes. Isn’t that what would spell acceptance? - Taking life as it comes… just trusting the Creator that He knows what He’s doing and allowing, even if it might take a lot of faith and trust for some of that level of acceptance. Can you accept My ways? Just say, “okay” to Us, as I’ve told My disciples to ask the Father “Thy will be done?” Just accept the fact - or at least the possibility - that the Creator of all things has got some outstanding qualities that just might differ from yours, and might not be all that bad to accept! Accepting something that may have looked good, interesting, or at least definitely tempting, and choosing to walk that path, will turn out to have been the wrong direction. (17:133) With a positive way of taking things, it can even turn the negatives into a positive! Turn some burdens into blessings just by taking things cheerfully! (17:136) With the times of trouble on their way… just let it be! Be ready to accept! Just get ready to deal with the not-so-easy part of life, taking what comes and making the best of it you can! If conditions, circumstances and company around you make it just about tougher every day… Take it by faith! Just take and accept from Us whatever comes as what you need - and, most likely - deserve! (17:138) The chore of making the best you can out of a fairly obscure reality may be quite a challenge, but something to simply accept and deal with. (17:143) Faith will be the principal survival factor through times to come, and taking and accepting things and circumstances as they are is an important part of it. The most important part to learn to accept in life is what I allow to happen to you, trusting Me by faith that I know what’s best for you, even if the enemy will try to convince you of the opposite with his negative input and doubts. (17:144) Let’s wait and see what happens when the boss of hell takes over completely and turns the Earth into his home, how many folks will be ready to accept My Alternative! To offer My Alternative to as many as you can is basically the job, the task and purpose of My followers down there… being representatives of Heaven, and offering that new and coming Home to those who want and accept it. (17:148)

…Adjustment/Adaptability (Getting Used to Things & Conditions) Learn to accept each new situation and adapt to whatever comes with it! (11:102) There are huge changes coming; and getting used to them and becoming adaptable is an important factor. (16:116) Unpleasant circumstances are just something to get used to with the way the world’s future’s headed. (16:127) Losing all financially is a realistic preview of what will be happening on a worldwide level soon. So, get used to it! (16:140)

If it’s all a bit chaotic, don’t be too shocked! – Since what’s coming at the world could easily be described as chaos or a chaotic state, so, I’m afraid you’ve just got to get used to that, and not be too shocked by it. (16:161) With day after day presenting you with tough times and trials, you’re just going to have to get used to and prepared for the time of toughest trials in history. (16:162) The sooner you get used to depending and relying on heavenly protection, the better for you. (16:166) Get used to having to depend on miracles in order to make it through what’s coming! Get used to miracle groove – the only thing that’ll see you through what’s up! You just have to get used to the mode where miracles will be necessary to make it through each day of living. So, get used to having to depend on miracles! Get used to having to learn to depend on the Strength and Power from Above… the stuff that makes miracles and miraculous acts happen! Get used to the fact of the forces ruling the planet and having spoiled society with plenty in order to make them fall spiritually asleep, are going to withdraw all that abundant supply soon, with the values of money crashing down and preparing the globe for the mark of the Beast! Get used to miracle-groove becoming a necessity without which survival for anyone who won’t accept the mark will just take miracles on a daily basis to make it through! So, get used to the fact that dependence on Me, the Strength, Power and supply from Above you’ll need to make it through what’s coming, basically means dependence on miracles! The weaker one’s own abilities, the more obvious it becomes that only miracles from Above are what’s going to see you through. – A fact and something to get used to. (16:167) Hard times to go through… and they’re going to become harder still, are something to get used to. (16:169) Get used to the fact of having to make it through the Help from Above! (16:171) If things aren’t that easy, get used to it! Just get used to the fact of depending on prayer more and more in a world that’s bound to turn into hell on Earth the closer the enemy gets to his period of ultimate and final reign down there! You’ve just got to get used to that fact that the times of enjoyment have come to an end, and the part of making it through the conditions in spite of them is setting in! (16:174) The closer to Me conditions around you draw you, the better in the long run! It’s good you’re getting used to the only way you’ll make it through what’s coming. (16:175) When life has been easier before, it’s a tough change and settlement to get used to the tough times, but you’ve just got to! Don’t let it get you too uptight if you can’t accomplish anything else than hearing from Me first! It will be the way by which things will work in the future – the only way, and you’ve got to get used to it! Depending on Me will amount to this: without the supernatural Help from Above not accomplishing or managing to do anything. It’ll come to that, and you’ve got to get used to it! Get used to that relatively new and strange modus operandi! (16:177) Tough days are what’s ahead of you, so get used to it! Depending on heavenly protection… get used to it! (16:178) Get used to the rougher and tougher times, because they’ll get rougher as time goes by! (17:5) New situations require something different than leaning on one’s own abilities, habits and experience. Dealing with the new, and learning how to do that is one of the advantages of getting or being used to changes. (17:27) if you can’t see how on Earth things are supposed to work out for you, just get used to it, because that will be the rhythm and way of the near future, when the enemy will make the closest thing to hell out of the planet that he’ll ever achieve! So… don’t be too shocked by the lousy way things are working out, since you’ve just got to get used to them getting worse! Get used to the fact of miracles becoming a necessity! (17:43) Every day seems to be getting tougher, because the times are getting tougher, and heading for the toughest in history. So, you've just got to get used to the toughness of things and the easy days being over. (17:49) If it’s unpleasant times and circumstances you’re having to go through, realize that they’re something you’ll have to get used to! Remember that it’s our enemy who’s behind making things as tough as he can for My believers, and he’s getting closer by the day to the point of total control down there… so, something you’ve got to get used to, just like Job had to, with his unpleasant and unfortunate circumstances, and if you look at how My life on Earth ended, I did, as well. (17:50)

Things just won’t continue as easily as they have in the past, and you’ve got to get used to it. (17:56) Hard times are not easy, but that's just what you've got to get used to. Remember whose forces are in charge down there! (17:58)

You've just got to get used to tough times with what's coming. (17:59) If circumstances are bleak, remember that they’re going to get far bleaker, and you’ve just got to get used to it! (17:63) It’s easier to follow the same old ruts, routs and routines, but remember changes as one of the elemental parts you’ve got to get used and accustomed to! (17:70) Feeling incapable, and thus in the need of heavenly Help is something you’re going to have to get used to, since you just won’t make it without that in the dark days up ahead. What’s before you is the toughest times ever, and you’ve got to prepare for it by getting used to times of trouble and times not the way you’d like them to be! (17:84) See the factor of acceptance and learning to take others a bit more the way they are as a positive feature of adaptability! (17:85)

In times to come things won’t work anywhere near as smoothly as they did in the past, and it’s just a condition you slowly need to get used to. (17:88) In order to get used to availing yourself of the Strength from Above, it’s easier to do so through the tougher times, when it becomes more obviously necessary that you need My Help and support to make it through. Not relying on own capacities is a transition that doesn’t come automatically, since for the majority of folks it’s just something they’re not used to. (17:89) You can’t take it anymore, that groove of things becoming different, darker, and more unpleasant? That’s what the trait of adjustment is all about: Learning to handle whatever’s coming up and dealing with it, knowing by faith that I won’t let anything too hard to handle come upon you. (17:91) Get ready for the rough times, taking things the way they come and are, even if it’s not something you’re used to! That’s why “adjustment” has become one of My themes: Folks just have to start getting ready for and adapted to tougher times and conditions. (17:95) Get used to the factor of things in general going downhill! (17:98) Feeling like you can’t make it without Me? - Good! That’s what times are going to be like, and it’s good to get used to and prepared for it. (17:99) Get used to relying on My side of things, no matter what’s coming to face you down there! (17:100) To be part of the total outsiders in this world is something to get used to. (17:102) Get used to the times of physical darkness coming, and let it give you the incentive to stay focused on My Light! (17:105) The Spirit World is your destination and where you’re headed, so it’s good to adjust through faith to the standards that are expecting you Here… “The Standard of Love…,” much more important than the momentary earthly standards of wealth and materialism. So, learn to adjust and tune in to My Standards, instead of the ones according to materialism! (17:108) Having harder things to deal with than you’d prefer is just a condition you’ll have to get used to in a world about to be completely taken over by the reign of our enemy. (17:110) There’s a big transmission coming and on its way, and a drastic difference… So, good and wise not to get too used to and stuck on the way circumstances have been all along. (17:113) As much as you avail yourself of My Strength and Power determines how much you’ll be available to Me and enable Me to use you for the divine purposes We’d like you to fulfill, even if it’s through the hardest times of history. (17:120) Get used to it, that you’ll be needing semi-permanent miraculous protection! So, get used to the Miracles-Necessity-Groove! (17:122) You’ve got to get used to becoming a strong contrast! So different from the majority of what’s around you, it will be like the contrast between darkness and light. (17:125)

Get used to the necessity of miracles of protection, supply and basically, survival, until I come! Get used to the dependence on My Light, Power, Help and protection you’ll utterly depend on during those years to come! (17:130)

Get used to the fact that being older is not a disadvantage, as far as I’m concerned. The older you are, the less you lean on the strength of the flesh, which starts shrinking around that time, and you become more accepting of the fact that you need Help from Above. (17:131) Rougher circumstances and conditions are part of the process of preparation for even rougher ones to come, and I’m afraid the roughness of matters is just something having to become used to. (17:135) Get used to depending on miracles to survive each day! Just get used to the fact that you’ll need Me to make it! (17:140) If life so far has been comparatively easy, just come to the realization that that’s one area in which drastic changes are taking place, and the sooner you get used to it, the better. (17:141) Get used to the fact that circumstances won’t turn out anything like perfect during the present conditions the world is under! (17:142) Getting used to tough times is just something you should see as a positive, because it’s the biggest help to get you ready for what’s coming! Just get used to depending on Me for survival! (17:143) Having to depend on My miraculous Help for protection and supply is something to get used to. (17:144)

…Advantage/Disadvantage (Pros & Cons/Assets) A lack of love for a Christian is always a disadvantage and a sin, because it is My commandment for you to love others. (IV:26)

When one’s only cause has become their own advantage, it has become a sad cause indeed. (IV:112) The knowledge of evil is always geared toward personal advantage over someone else, and personal gain. The knowledge of good serves to do good to others. (IV:135) If you feel bad about being too weak to make it on your own through this life, be comforted and know that I don’t see that weakness as a handicap at all, but rather as a strength and an asset that will give you an advantage over others who will have to go the long detour of finding out that making it in their own strength will not lead them to that closeness with Me where their innermost heart and core of their being would really yearn to go. (IV:136) The knowledge of evil is designed to give man an advantage over another. (IV:137) It’s a privileged position to have been called apart from the world by Me, and you should see it as a definite advantage, not a disadvantage or handicap of some kind, as if you were being left behind or forgotten and ignored. (IV:138) Staying dropped out offers you the advantage that you’re really free. (IV:141) Being attuned to the Spirit World has many advantages. It helps you to be more sensitive to the needs of your present situation, and helps you to tune in to others and their needs better, to have greater understanding for them, since your spirit helpers are in touch with theirs, and they can help each of you to find common ground. (IV:145) The main reason why I want you to avail yourself of the advantages and services of the Spirit Realm is so that you can know and let others know as well that you’re not alone. You have not been forsaken. You’re in good hands, and no matter what hard times on Earth you may go through, there is help for you available and close by, accessible to anyone via the hand of faith and the mere effort of asking for it. (IV:147)

In the Spirit World We won’t discriminate you because of your age, because everyone Here knows that age is pretty much irrelevant, or rather, how much of an advantage it can be to have greater experience. (IV:185) You’re in no way disadvantaged, even if you may presently find yourself in a wee minority and vastly outnumbered. Remember My stance on “the numbers of man!” They don’t really impress Me, and neither should you be impressed by them. (IV:194) To become skilled in the arts of spiritual communication can really be of great advantage to you. (IV:236) I see farther ahead than you can, and I can see the advantage in a seemingly negative situation that you can’t possibly see yet. (IV:273) My goal is that you become so gung ho over Me and this big advantage you have over others by having Me as that permanent Source of everything you need, that you will more gladly, more willingly, readily and openly share Me with them, offer Me to them and advertise Me to them, so that they can benefit from My Presence in their lives, too, the same way you would recommend a good film, book or piece of freeware. (IV:303) The advantage of being a nobody: you don’t have to wonder how you fit into the picture. (IV:309) It’s time you recognize My advantages over any earthly ally you can have! (IV:336) I let you see both sides of the coin: the advantages and disadvantages of different options, and I want you to carefully make your choice. (IV:447) Focus on the Power of the Spirit you possess and consider this your greatest forte, your greatest asset! (IV:535) Life always has its pros and cons, and the challenge for you is to look at the positive side, the donut, not the hole, and count your blessings. (11:41) I didn’t pursue the road that led to My own good and advantage, but literally, My destruction, in favor of the good of others. And that’s the pattern I left for My serious followers… (11:101) The game of the world is all about seeking one’s own advantage over others… competition and winning over your adversaries and opponents. How much of a good, voluntary loser – just for the sake of demonstrating that you’re not part of that game – can you be? (11:108) Learning to handle roughness is not a disadvantage, but something that makes you stronger in the spirit – in other words, the way that lasts! (16:15) Human beings are so entangled in their momentary state, that it takes some disadvantages of their situations and conditions to make or help them to look forward to something better to come. Those rough times somehow draw you closer to Me; and isn’t that an advantage? Getting through the rough and tough times draws you closer to Me than just basically striving for your own advantages when things are flowing normal. (16:46) The seeming disadvantages of a place making you more dependent on Me than the system’s help is actually more of an advantage! (16:52) Making it your goal to please Us by doing Our will for you is definitely an advantage according to the rules and standards of Eternity, and not just gear your behavior according to the temporal, worldly ways of success! (16:57) If you’re becoming aware of being dependent on My leading and guidance, that’s a surplus, advantage and – as you’ll find out, a blessing from Above! (16:59) Don’t consider it a loss or disadvantage to get closer to the point where you’ll have to wave that temporal scene good-bye! See the advantages of the Spirit above the flesh, and thus become more spiritually-minded! (16:61) The enemy still keeps tempting you through your weaknesses, saying, “Uh, you see? You don’t deserve it!” But if I were like that, would I keep feeding you with input whenever you come before Me to receive it? – And that’s an advantage not everyone of My believers has. Well, I know that you need it. But isn’t it another proof that weakness you’re having to deal with is also an advantage? (16:62)

Tough times strengthen and prepare you for the rougher ones to come! It may not be pleasant, but see the advantage of the strengthening factor! Even the hard times have their advantage. And when you tend to forget them, remember: strengthening! (16:65)

Fleshly weakness is an advantage to Me, and as far as I’m concerned. (16:79) Physical surplus might sound like an advantage; but you’ll only make it through the miraculous support of Power from Above. Can you see the advantage of putting your faith in the Spirit instead of carnal and physical conditions and circumstances? (16:90)

Those used to hard times will have their advantages… at least they won’t be struck as by lightning compared to those not being used to hard times at all. (16:91) Relying on Me instead of the abilities that saw you through will turn out a blessing and advantage, you’ll see! (16:92) Remember that for Me it’s an advantage and a victory that this world isn’t your home! (16:98) The advantage of harder times: Even though your physical conditions and circumstances are tougher on you, your connection with Me grows stronger. So, try to see the advantages of physically weakened condition! Even though life has become tougher than ever before, focus on the spiritual advantages! (16:100) The enemy is using that human weakness where all they’re expecting is good and easy times, with his folks down there soon to take big advantage of the masses being totally unprepared for trouble. (16:101) If it makes you feel less at home in that world, what you’re going through, take it as an advantage from My point of view! (16:105)

One of the advantages of loss: Teaching you to appreciate what formerly you took for granted. (16:108) See, the Goal is a good universe; and what it takes is the inhabitants to learn the disadvantages of evil. (16:112) No reliance on your own capacities? See it as an advantage in the point of view of what’s to come! While it may still hit you as a current disadvantage, trust Me that it will turn out an advantage in the long run, when no one’s own advantages will help to see them through what’s to come if they’re on Our side, or simply not on the coming-torule enemy’s. (16:114) It’s good to stay as flexible as you can. Flexibility’s an advantage. (16:125) See it as an advantage that you’re not guided by the natural illusions most folks have about the world! See it as an advantage that you’re becoming more aware of who’s currently still in charge of and spiritually governing it, and will soon reach the point of his final and physical takeover of world government, the incident that will reveal to all where his leadership will lead: not the Heaven on Earth that I offer, but hell! - And learning that discernment – another gift of the Spirit – is another advantage, not a disadvantage. If judgment’s coming, see and understand why, even if it includes disadvantages, and the former comfortable and easygoing life-style coming to an end! (16:133) If you’re feeling a lot weaker than you did before, remember the advantages of physical weakness according to My Word! (16:137)

The dependence on the Spirit is an asset… a pro, not a contra… an advantage in the long run, even if physically an apparent disadvantage! The apparent advantages and seemingly positive sentiments of the flesh aren’t really what I’d call an advantage or a positive… since what I and all of Us Up Here advocate is a strengthening of the Spirit, not the physical sentiments of the flesh, which are rather associated with lust… (16:138) You’ll discover that “spirit” won’t turn out a disadvantage, just because it’s mainly invisible down there. (16:142) The times of trouble will have their purpose and advantages, too. There will be an answer, and somehow it’s much easier to find when folks are less distracted by their physical and material advantages. That’s why I’m emphasizing the advantage of believing over seeing with your physical eyes: you’ve got to learn to see things in spirit, not be geared toward the view of physical circumstances turning into their lousiest state ever. (16:147) Disadvantages in the flesh may easily turn out to be advantages in the spirit! See the advantage of Me directing you My way instead of your own, even if that’s what you’re more used to! Trust Me that the weakening of your fleshly capacities is an advantage, because it causes you to trust and rely more on the Help and Strength from Above, the only Things that will see you through what’s to come! See it as an advantage that you’ve got a bit more of a clue of what’s coming, and you’ll have a bit more of an insight of what’s up when it all happens! (16:150)

The advantage of living and active communication with Me: getting the input, counsel and advice you’re needing for the present, along with preparations for what’s to come. (2016:154) One day you’ll see this episode and time of weakness as an advantage, something that will turn out to have been the key to put your trust in the Source of Strength that really counts, and goes way above physical abilities. (2016:158) Take it by faith that the state of weakness is a positive and an asset, because that’s what will bring the heavenly Strength and Power in you to life, which, when you don’t need it and don’t create a vacuum for it, it just won’t be there! (16:161) Why did We allow evil? To teach people to make the right choices, and not get tripped off on the wrong wavelengths… and everyone will be able to see where those lead. That’s the apparent disadvantage of free choice… and yet… would there be liberty without it? (2016:163) See dependence on Heaven as an asset not everyone has the benefit and faith to enjoy! (16:170) Not being able to manage what you tried to drew you to Me. Do you think I’d consider that an asset or something negative? (16:173)

One of the disadvantages of relying on one’s own, physical abilities: There will always come situations and difficulties too hard to deal with in one’s own capacities of the flesh; and thus, trusting in the heavenly Help and support and protection from Above is – with what’s coming at the world – a much safer way to ride and walk, and one of the reasons We’re not letting times be as easy for you as they have been in the past, where you were able to rely on your own abilities and capacities. (2016:175) It may not have any or a lot of advantage for you to make it through what’s coming, but the fact that there will be people yearning for what you’ve got to offer should lead and direct you into the willingness of making it through the dark times for their sake. (2016:176) The advantage of tough times: Raising your appreciation for heavenly Help. If loving your Lord and God has been named by Me to be the first and most important commandment, see whatever draws you closer to Me as an advantage, even if at first it may seem like a huge disadvantage! Experiencing your heavenly Help through apparent and initial disadvantages is one of the main factors of circumstances and incidents that draw you closer to Me, and one of the main reasons We allow them to happen. (2016:178) You may see it as a disadvantage that you’re having such a hard time to cope with things, compared to the way you used to… but I see it as an advantage. You don’t know how you’re going to get things rigged up, and it makes you feel a bit confused and hopeless. But since that’s a condition that makes you a lot more dependent on Me and the Help from Above, I can only see it as an advantage in connection with the view of what’s before you and the times to come. Sometimes things just have to be taken the way they are, and in a case like yours and other believers, taken with the advantage of the ability to avail yourself of the Heavenly Help offered to you in Our knowledge, that there’s just no chance to make it through what’s coming without It. (2016:180) The bad news We’ve been giving to people for millennia, in order for some to get prepared for the enemy’s grand finale when it’s happening. And the vast majority of people can’t see it yet. Your advantage: you won’t be as shocked as they. (2016:183)

Seeing the world the way I do may not seem like an advantage to you at first… Just trust Me, that it’s the more realistic point of view of things… of the conditions of a place run by our enemy. (2016:184) Drawing you into a state of dependence on Help from Above you’ll see as an advantage and necessary preparation when the toughest conditions will have arrived. (2016:193) One of the advantages of not feeling comfy or at home in the world: you’re much more prone to feel at Home Here where I am and We’re all ultimately expecting you. (2016:197) Trust Me that the ability to handle and accept the truth is an advantage! (2016:199) Think and feel like you can’t make it? For you a disadvantage, maybe, but in Our eyes an asset, since it will force and drive you closer to acting through Us, Our Strength and Power instead. (2016:200) Circumstances to cause you to yearn for the victory over the state they leave you in are likely to turn out to be an advantage for you, since they make you more desperate for My Help and input, and thus you’re simply more likely to get it. (2016:204)

See the advantage of children, and why I said, “Become as little children?” – They don’t worry as much. (2016:207) See the advantage of feeling incapable! (17:1)

The advantage of having to go through tough times: you get used to them, and learn how to handle them better than when all you were still used to were easy times. See the advantage of a situation causing you to do different things than just “hanging in there”? It makes you feel a bit more useful, doesn’t it? (17:10) If you need My input to make it, it’s an advantage from My objective for both, you and Me. The more you learn to tune in to Me, the more you’ll be able to act according to My will for you, because you’ll be more conscious of what exactly it is. (17:14) Don’t see the need of My leading and guidance as an utter disadvantage, but get closer to and hooked on the advantage of depending on My Spirit, leading and guidance! It’s what you’ll need and be dependent on in the not too distant future! (17:16)

Your non-comfortability down there for Us is an advantage and a positive! It reminds you, you don’t belong there. Just as I didn’t, and all My true saints didn’t and don’t. (17:22) See the tough times as a potential advantage in certain aspects! (17:25) New situations require something different than leaning on one’s own abilities, habits and experience. Dealing with the new, and learning how to do that is one of the advantages of getting or being used to changes. (17:27) The more it’s up to Us, whether you’ll make it or not, the greater the challenge to Us, and you’ll finally – in the end – realize and recognize it as an ultimate advantage. When you don’t know how to do it on your own, the greater the chance for Us to play Our part, because the need for Us is there, and someday you’ll recognize that as an unexpected, positive advantage. Just handle the tough circumstances the best you can! – And learn how to deal with the fact of them getting tougher! If they make you feel like wanting to run out of that world, well, in My eyes, and from My point of view, a positive reaction and advantage! (17:31) Protection from Up Here is something you need, and you’ll need all the more in darker days up ahead. Getting familiar with those necessities is an advantage. Becoming more aware of a growing need and necessity is a plus. (17:41)

See it as an advantage in the long run, whatever keeps you humble! (17:55) One of the advantages of being a child of God in a world that’s not their home: having the Father and His Host take care of you. (17:62) Consider dependence on Me and Help from Above an advantage, since there are times coming when that ability will be an utter necessity! (17:63) Putting up with different ways is something positive if you consider how different Our ways are from the common human ways and behavior. So, let part of it be helpful to get you ready for the different that’s coming! It has an advantage over getting stuck in ruts. (17:65) If you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s not a disadvantage, just a reason and incentive to ask Us about it. (17:70) See your own weakness as an advantage that causes you to rely more on Us! A state that you will discover over time as an asset, too. (17:72) Not much self-confidence left? To Me that’s an advantage, because it shows you’re becoming dependent on Me and the Help from Above. A positive advantage over self-confidence from a heavenly point of view. If the circumstances around you aren’t rosy, take it as the advantage of growing dependence on Me and heavenly Strength, not your own! My input gives you spiritual Strength and encouragement. - One of the advantages of communication with Me. When someone becomes dependent on My input and their communication with Me, that’s an asset from My point of view. My point of view is a factor of the advantage of believing vs. seeing. (17:76) I don’t want you to see your present incapability as a disadvantage, but as a coming advantage that will enable Me to do things through you that you couldn’t possibly accomplish by yourself, and definitely not in times to come! (17:82) With life having been made as easy as it has been, it’s hard to adjust to tough times and get back to a rougher life of faith, but trust Me that it’ll turn out an advantage once you come to grips with the facts of what the future truly holds! (17:83) When someone’s pretty much all-knowing, and still open for new input from experiences, would that be a pro or con, a positive or negative quality according to your opinion? (17:85)

No idea how to make it? Well, that shows you need some Help from Above. And I consider that an advantage. So, see the situations you don’t feel you’ll manage as a heavenly advantage! - An advantage for Us to make something better out of them. (17:88) Seeing the disadvantages of the fleshly existence ought to help you see the advantages of the coming spiritual one. (17:89) If everyone else around you seems to be expecting things to keep going the way they are forever, let it make you see preparation as a rare positive and advantage! (17:91) The challenge for believers is to focus and rise above the disadvantages caused by the evil forces ruling down there temporarily, and keep the vision Up Here: your Goal and Destination. (17:93) Remember that I see it as an advantage when My folks don’t feel like they can make it by themselves! To depend on Me, a factor that draws you closer to Me, is definitely an advantage, don’t you think? (17:99) Advantages you learn to appreciate after experiencing disadvantages. So, even disadvantages have their assets, even if just to make folks appreciate what they didn’t before them. (17:101) Can’t make it without Me? See it as an advantage! Don’t see your weakened physical state as a disadvantage, but as important preparation to get you in the right groove to make it through what’s coming! (17:105) The advantage of Me working out things and circumstances for My believers to make it through the day is being prepared for the groove folks will have to get into when the dark and evil times arise. (17:110) It’s part of human nature to seek advantages of a material kind. It stems from the ego and is a natural ingredient; however, the one where selfishness comes from, too… and it’s one of the main reasons I have to make new creatures out of My followers, if they want to manage to become a good, godly, and thus divine sample, instead of one of those of the “god” whose traits the majority of humans have chosen and accepted instead… So, seek advantages of a spiritual kind… the kind that by most folks on Earth might rather be labeled “disadvantage…” but do it by faith that you know - because you believe - that We Up Here know best! (17:118) It takes an act of faith to see things in a different way from the way the masses around you do, but that’s one of the factors why difference from the crowd is an asset from Our heavenly point of view. (17:119) So, you’re different. See it as an asset! Don’t feel bad you can’t even make it without input from My Spirit! Even if it may not look like an advantage from other folks’ point of view, see it from the point of view of the “Word” that “was made flesh!” (17:123) Whether you’ll go through your days in a positive manner and mood or condition, or negative, basically depends on whose side you mentally and emotionally aim your focus. Definitely another reason for the advantage to keep your focus aimed on Me. My relationship with you is becoming more important to you, and that’s a great asset. Especially in sight of the times to come, when those who are Mine won’t make it anymore without My daily personal leadings and guidance of their lives through the darkest passage of history! (17:129) Being older is not a disadvantage, as far as I’m concerned. The older you are, the less you lean on the strength of the flesh, which starts shrinking around that time, and you become more accepting of the fact that you need Help from Above. (17:131)

See the advantage of unpleasant circumstances: they draw your focus more toward the spiritual and better side of things! (17:132)

From My point of view, your weakened state is an asset for Me, since it just lets Me work through you a lot better than when you were so confident in and relying on your own strengths and energies… (17:134) It’s good and a big advantage to be and stay connected to Me, Who can reveal to you whatever you need to know. (17:146)

…Air It’s only your position that changes. I am the Lord, I change not. - Yesterday, today, forever... the same. I am constant. Constantly and permanently there for you, just like the air all around you, just like the universe all around you. As long as the universe is there, you can be assured that I’m still there, too! The way sinful human nature is programmed, is that you always attempt to provide for yourself without Help from Above or rather, without acknowledgment of all the Help you're receiving from Me in the first place, all the Help and supply you're taking for granted: the air you breathe, the sunshine that makes growth and life possible, etc. And then you look around for what else you can take for granted without having to thank Me: take another human being that pleases you and all they have to offer you, and wind up taking them for granted as well, until you get tired of them and start looking around for another one... Unless you become dependent on Me for the very air you breathe and every breath you take, every bite of food you eat and everything you do and need, life is a farce, and you will only become distracted in the deceitful rut of survival and meaninglessness. This battle field of life can become pretty hostile territory when you allow the Enemy to disturb the equilibrium of things just a little bit and allow him to take a little bit of the proportions, one tiny measurement of one of the essential ingredients out of your life, that enable you to breathe properly. After all, that's what those poisonous gases in warfare are supposed to do: to disable the enemy and stop him from breathing. Another allegory of life with spiritual background. If I'm the air that you breathe, don't let the enemy rob you of it! Don't let him kill you with his poisonous gases, don't let him choke you, suffocate you, don't let him steal your oxygen. Defend your right to breathe! (III:112) I don’t want to scare you of the future, but if you would see the severity of the impending doom, you would act completely differently! You would dig out the Word and start reading & memorizing as if your life would depend on it as much as breathing. I will have to become your oxygen, if you want to survive the days to come! I will have to become your only light, your bread, your water, and everything you need to live, for the Devil is going to try to cut all other means of supply. Sooner or later, every human being will have to come face to face with the fact you have accepted long ago, but for them will be a bitter truth, that without Me you can do nothing. Let’s face it: without Me you can’t even breathe. They think they can, because, after all, they’ve got lungs & oxygen. But Who made the lungs & the oxygen? And Who created the process that made an endless supply of oxygen possible? Man? They’re trying their damnedest to destroy & stop that process with their pollution & murdering of the forests. Just because they refuse to give the credit to Me doesn’t change a thing about the fact that I’m still responsible for it. Air is a good description of My nature: It is invisible, yet vital & all around you. Sometimes it is warm & still & sometimes whips your faith in strong winds, or wreaks judgment over the Earth in fierce storms. Mostly taken for granted, you never miss it as much as when it’s not there, just like people are most desperate for Me when I remove the things that keep them alive, when they’re nearing their death... That’s when they realize in terror that they can’t survive another minute without that certain something they’ve been taking for granted all their lives, like a drowning man. Well, better late than never, but how much more advanced are those who already acknowledge My presence & the importance of including Me, and your dependence on Me. Independence is alright, as long as you don’t dream of independence from Me. It’s as if the Earth would declare its independence from the sun & drift off into space. It’s like a fish’s independence from water, or a plant’s independence from light – or yours from the air... you can’t do without it. I’ve written it all over My handiwork: ‘You need Me, you can’t do without Me any more than a fish can do without water, a plant can do without light, no more than you can live without air: Without Me, you can do nothing!’ I’m tossing you into the water & you’ll only be able to breathe by My miracle-working grace & power. It’s pretty hard to trust in yourself when you need a miracle to even breathe. The good thing about learning to breathe under water is that you’ll be prepared & won’t drown when the flood comes, and the flood is going to come. You’ll already have learned to depend on Me for every miraculous breath you take, nothing taken for granted, surviving on My supernatural power every moment, every second. I want you to indulge more in the spiritual riches & wealth I’m pouring out on you, emphasize more on them, acknowledge their greater importance, become more dependent on them & make greater use of them! They are your supply of oxygen while you’re learning to breathe under water! I am your oxygen! And neglecting Me in such a situation is a very dangerous thing to do! I’m your oxygen! Breathe Me in, & you’ll keep wide awake & full of energy! Let Me be your oxygen, your energy, your Everything! Anything you need... you’ve got it! Don't stop giving, don't stop loving, for loving never stops! It's like breathing, or a heartbeat: the moment you stop, it dies. Love has to continue, it is alive, and in order to keep it alive, you have to keep loving, keep using it, keep moving.

I am the Oxygen that will keep this flame alive, and as long as you're aware of how much you depend on Me, it is going to keep burning. When nothing on earth will go or flow anymore, no more gas, no more oil, no more water, no more electricity, then My power will still be running through you! And one fine day, that'll be all that will be needed: My power! In a way, all is My power - or a physical manifestation of it, anyway: every breath you take is already a manifestation of power! Only then it will be obvious & clear to everyone where it all came from in the first place! Everything is a miracle: every breath you take is a wonder of My creation, a gift of My love, grace & benevolence to you. Every meal you eat is a token of My love & supply to you, and if you just learn to see everything as a miracle in the first place (instead of taking it all for granted), then you'll also have more faith for other miracles, or for Me to continue doing the same miracles, even when the "normal" flow of supply should stop. Use some love-power & fill your life with its fragrance, with its shine and magic! Make it come to the point where you breathe prayer. Breathing is a lot like prayer. You breathe in My life-giving oxygen, you spiritually inhale My Spirit, My love, My force, and you exhale it again, as you breathe out positiveness, your positive influence on the world. If you think of prayer as something similar to breathing, a process in which you constantly inhale and exhale My Spirit, as the life-giving power that will sustain your spirit, just as oxygen keeps you alive in the physical, then you'll get the gist of what I mean. Every breath you take brings new life to your body, keeps it from dying. Why not do the same thing to your spirit? Why allow it to "die" or even feel worn out and tired and without any strength, when you can be constantly renewed with heavenly fresh air and constant new whiffs of My Spirit? Let Me save you again! Let Me refill you again! Let Me save you again and again from the death of this life, and be reborn and renewed over and over again into the power of eternal life! There's so much more you haven't even begun yet to experience, to taste, to see and feel and hear and see, and to breathe! Breathe! Breathe in Me with every breath you take! Breathe Me in! As you breathe Me in, I will breathe upon you the breath of life, the breath that first caused Adam to awaken, and brought forth life from non-living matter; and so it will raise you from death to life - from a life, once so death-like, to a life truly lived in My Love, My exuberant joy, My victory, My Spirit. Everyone who thinks they can do without Me will find out that they can do just about as fine without Me in the long run as they can do without air… (IV:495) Just remember I’m your Oxygen, and you need Me as desperately as a deep sea diver needs oxygen under water. He wouldn’t let anybody talk him out of taking his oxygen along, nor would he let anything or anyone distract him from strapping those bottles on. He’d realize he wouldn’t get very far without it, and likewise you must realize that you won’t get very far without Me. It’s a fight and an effort, just as it is for the diver to strap on those bottles, keeping them refilled and hauling them around… Coming to think of it, it’s easier having Me along, isn’t it? (11:24) See dependence on Me just as much as you know you’re dependent on air, light and water! If you can’t make it without Me, definitely don’t see it as a negative! - See it as a fact just like the one that you can’t make it without air, light and water! (17:110)

…All Things Focus on Me, Who giveth you richly all things to enjoy, the eternal Giver and Source of every good and perfect gift: your only link with true happiness. (I:11) As long as you learn from your mistakes, nothing is lost. Even your mistakes made are then one of ‘ all things’ which work together for good for them that love Me. (I:15) All things work together for good to you because you love Me and are called and chosen according to My purpose. (I:516)

Put aside your carnal mind and be ready to expect what you think is impossible to happen! Give Me a chance to prove to you what is "impossible" and what not! I tell you what's impossible: nothing is! There is no such thing as impossible to Me! I can change any life! Everything and anything is possible with Me, and you insult Me and hurt Me if you put Me in a box and say, "Sorry, Lord, but it's quite obvious that You're not going to be able to do that! I might just do it in order to prove to you how wrong you are in putting Me or anyone else for that matter in a box, because anything is possible, and anyone can change! Anything can happen - there are no limits to what I can do. (I:577) If you refuse the enemy's or the System's or even your own labels of "good and bad" and you start to realize that all things deserve the label "good," because I have said it (Rom. 8:28), then why not just praise Me? (II:267) All things that I have brought about in your life, every stream of input, every influence, every contact, every friendship... they all work together toward My grander plan. Everything will make sense someday, even the apparently senseless. (II:296) What would you do, where would you go, if you really believed that all things were possible to you? (II:308) If you keep on believing, all things are possible, and nothing, I really mean nothing, shall be impossible! (II:322) Having all things in common is opposed to the System's idea of privacy. (II:403) Not all things are as they seem. If you go and dig beneath the surface of what it seems like, you'll discover a different picture. (II:407) If all things are possible to him that believeth, it's only your own fault if things aren't the way they should in your life. (II:430) There's nothing you cannot do, and "you can do all things, through Christ, which strengtheneth you" (Phil.4:13). (II:444) Why try in your own strength to add cubits to your stature, when all things come from Me in the first place? (II:462) I don't give up on you prematurely, but I love you with a Love which “hopeth all things, beareth all things, believeth all things." (II:465) Learn to look past the circumstances and conditions, past the way things are, and beyond their current state, to a future where all things are the way they ought to be! (II:466) Make sure you do all things "to the glory of God" (1.Cor.10:31)! Then you don't have to worry about the outcome and you don't have to take it all into your own hands or take the burden of the responsibility for the outcome on yourself. (II:528) Just as all things are possible to him that believeth, all things are impossible to him that believeth not, because faith is what makes everything possible in the first place. (II:575) I can do all things and am able to change every life that you allow Me to touch through you. (II:576) Make each day as if it were the first day of a new period of your life, and it is, because it's a different period than the past. It's the present: the beginning of the future, where you can do all things differently than you ever did them before. This day, I can make all things new. I give you My Power to overcome all things, even death! (II:625) It takes the "sting" out of what you're experiencing when you know it's for your good, like all things. (III:51) Everything belongs. And everybody, too! You're not supposed to tackle it all by yourself. (III:63) The more you look unto Me, the greater One beyond yourself enabling you to do all things, and without Whom you're able to do nothing, the more powerful you will also become in My Might. (III:77) “All things are possible to him that believeth.” It seems impossible? Make it possible, by believing anyway! You can make it possible, you can make it happen through your faith, because all things are possible to him that believes. (III:78) As you shrink in the significance of the nothingness of this world around you, you grow in all things that really count. Welcome from the world of nothingness to the World of All Things! True happiness lies only in acknowledging Me and giving the glory and honor to Whom it is due by respecting Me as the Source of happiness and life and all things. (III:130) All things will come and go, but I am the one Factor that remains. (III:196) The goal is not to remain in isolation, but Salvation in itself is a means of bringing the soul into the great union of all things, the Kingdom of Heaven. (III:228)

Only if you realize that all things come from My hand and are - contrary to what may seem at first glance - carefully planned, are you able to appreciate all the factors in your life for what they really are, the tremendous blessings in disguise you so often take for granted. (III:248) Trust that all things that come to you come from My hand, and that I know what's best for you! (III:254) It's the equilibrium of all things and a just measure of all the ingredients that make up the secret of life. (III:262) Communication with the other, the different, that's what it's all about: the re-unification of all things... (III:266) I can do all things through those who let Me strengthen them! (III:298) It isn't always easy to do all things purely for the right reasons... (III:305) If your focus really is primarily on Me, and I've got true top priority among all things and people that are of interest to you and intrigue you, then you'll be a lot quicker to forgive, and it will be much easier for you to cope with the failures of others. (III:342)

It doesn’t say, “I can do all things through the great and mighty church I’m affiliated with.” It says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth Me.” (III:390) My Words are the living essence of all things, and they have creative Power. (III:397) Time will tell who will have really learned the lesson of reliance on Me, and who will truly rise above all things, empowered by Me and My Spirit alone, not by natural abilities. (III:431) Why do all things work together for good for those who love God? - Because they are obeying the greatest of all commandments, which is to “love the Lord thy God.” (III:433) I don’t like for all things to be all the same, and you can see that in creation all over, where not one animal, not one tree, is exactly like the other. (III:489) When you trust in riches, instead of the living God Who giveth richly all things to enjoy, then you’re in trouble. (III:520) If you remember that all you have is what you’re being given by Me, you can view all things from a different viewpoint. (III:583)

I will only honor those with true and lasting riches, who honor Me as the Giver, Owner and Maker of all things. (III:590) As long as you believe that all things are possible, you’ll know that even if you get stuck along the way, seemingly without any strength or resources to continue, I’ll be able to supply you with what you need. (IV:21) That’s where faith is needed: to recognize those blessings in disguise, which will often have a more positive effect on the overall outcome than the seemingly and initial “good” things. All things work together for good to them that love Me, not just the supposedly “good” things. (IV:26) I asked you if you would be willing to become all things for all men, and willing to let Me make absolutely nothing out of you, so that I could talk and move and breathe in and through you. When the clouds of judgment on the horizon that they now refuse to see will be hovering right over them, they’ll make it evident that all things are not the way they’re supposed to be. (IV:64) Trust in My Promise that I will restore all things to an extent far beyond anything you could imagine right now! (IV:68) The times indeed are changing, and all things won’t continue as they have been, and My people are the first who must take note of the changes, if they want to be any help in leading the rest of the sheep and letting them know what’s going on. (IV:69)

In all things, it’s the sample that counts so much more than the sermon. (IV:76) Why should I let all things continue as normal, if they’re not the way they should be? (IV:82) When all the noise and clamor is over, what will remain is My still small voice uttering the Words and the music that keeps the universe turning, the “music of all things,” the “song of creation.” The tryings and purgings of time erode all things that are not really real, all false premature conclusions, no matter for how long they may have been worshiped and obeyed as “truths.” Even the degree to which all things – including man – are deteriorating is carefully planned, and the story that had a perfect beginning, in which all things were found as “good”, will also have a perfect ending, in which all things will again be found

as “good,” and, perhaps even a little better than before, due to all the precious lessons that will have been learned from man’s little detour into the world of evil. (IV:87) The difference between you and them is a very fundamental one: They’re leaving Me out of their equation and calculation of all things, and you don’t. (IV:90) That’s a Promise to cling to: “Behold, I make all things new (Rev.21:5).” (IV:95) I have charged you not to put your trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God Who gives you freely all things to enjoy (1.Tim.6:17). (IV:140) All things come from My hand, and every blessing you enjoy, so how would I not be able to supply your needs, when I have really done it all along, perhaps only without you fully realizing it and giving Me the glory and credit for it? (IV:156) To adapt your mental standard to the reality that folks around you actually live in, in order for them to be able to relate to you is another aspect of becoming all things to all men. (IV:167) To keep shining is a test of spiritual strength only I can give, and a work of My grace, but as in all things, you must do what you can. (IV:181) Life isn’t entirely easy to figure out these days, and it’s definitely a challenge to make sense of it, and to keep your mind on the goal. You wonder, “Where’s the sense in this?” But if truly all things work together for your good, then you must also trust Me that it’s true with these things that seemingly don’t make any sense… (IV:184) See Me in all things, perceive Me in all things, and thus it is without question that I actually am in all things. (IV:204) I can make all things new, and even the old things get a new touch if I breathe on them and blow them your way with a new twist, a new viewpoint and angle… (IV:217) I preserve unto Myself a special remnant that I refine unto Myself so that they, contrary to the course of the rest of all things, do improve and get better over time. A lot of things definitely used to be better in its past. - But not all things. Look at My salvaging Power and capability to preserve anything out of this crumbling world, including anyone who will turn to Me and thus refuse to take part in the process of all things decaying! (IV:240) All that’s required is a little patience, a little hope, and some faith that it’s going to happen in due time, and that all things are moving toward the point of total revelation! If one would try to explain all things to the carnal mind, it couldn’t handle it. I will ask you instead to have a little faith and look toward that day when all things shall be revealed. (IV:243) Faith is taking the craziness of it all and the apparent mess that life consists of, and wrapping it up in a bundle of faith, trusting Me for it, and – as I have promised – that in due time all things shall be revealed and they will wind up making perfect sense to you. (IV:244) The Spirit is where all things physical come from. (IV:305) The big problem is that the primary thing people focus on is the object of their desire, whatever they think will grant them security or fulfillment of whatever happens to be their greatest need, more than on the Giver, the One Who gives all things in the first place. (IV:313) Let Me guide you well, and all things are going to be alright, and you won’t have to have a bad conscience at the end of your path about your actions. (IV:328) Untold numbers of people experience the typical shock every day because they did not make preparations for unexpected changes, because they believed all things would continue as they were. (IV:333) Your help and strength cometh from the Lord which made Heaven and Earth, and thus you can do and handle all things I put before you. (IV:350) Maybe you’re just going to have to trust and believe that you can do all things through Me… (IV:369) The wonderful truth is: nothing is ever really lost, because I am well capable of retrieving all things for you. (IV:376) It’s not always good to have all things coming at you all too easily. (IV:383)

Test Me whether I’m not able to fulfill My Promises to you that you can indeed do all things through Me and overcome any obstacles and enemies! (IV:385) All things I give, including Salvation, My gifts, My support, protection, blessings, etc., often and mostly come undeserved and in exchange for nothing more than folks asking Me for them. (IV:403) In the crucial time of the world’s history that’s coming ever closer to the great showdown, all things will be settled and decided… (IV:415) I’m the Restorer of all things – the Creator and Restorer. (IV:451) I am the Master of all things, King of attention to details. (IV:456) I do all things well, I make all things good, including you. (IV:463) If you can take it by faith that all things, howbeit far from perfect, yet serve their perfect purpose, and you can trust that I know exactly what I’m allowing to be and come to pass, then you will fare well. (IV:491) I do all things well. That means, I don’t mess things up. (IV:492) How about this for another approach of “becoming all things to all men:” – “To the Romans as a Roman, to the Jews a Jew,” to the lonely as one of them? How can you, unless you’ve been there? (IV:493) You simply cannot reconcile both worlds, the old and the new. One will take over the other, and as you know, it is I Who will make all things new. (11:9) The carnal human tendency is to assume that all things will continue as they are and as they’ve always been. But the truth is, they won’t. (11:49) Here’s a clue on what to do with and how to treat any differences between you: treat them in the same way you should treat the hole in the donut of all things: just ignore them, and focus on what’s there instead, namely the things you have in common! (11:62) All things are connected somehow; and yet… your only hope of union with all things as you desire it, is really drawing closer to Me and allowing Me to draw you over to My side, which is actually the only true and real side, the lasting side of things, and distance yourself from their way of seeing and handling things, which is really only a sad illusion; a shadow that will disappear, along with all shadows, when the true Light appears. Yes, all things are one, but it is much like a game in which there are two players, two parties; two sides. The game is one, but there is only going to be one winner. (11:106) Avail yourself of the same Power in the there and now that you know will also restore all things in the future! (11:111) Cling to the Eternal! Find there a treasure much greater than any and all things you might have to let go in this life, and count them not loss, but gains in that they bring you closer to Me! (11:113) Let Me make all things possible that may seem impossible to you right now! (15:193) Lean on the Spirit from which all things come, not the flesh that still has a lot to learn on how to truly do things and operate! (2016:6) That’s what it means to put all things into the proper perspective: the focus of love! (2016:45) In a world where the enemy has managed to have just about everyone taught that all things came about by themselves through evolution, witnessing has become one of the toughest tasks you can’t really manage without the power of miracles from Above. (2016:52) There comes a time when all things change for everyone, and others will appreciate then that someone has been a bit more prepared for it. (2016:74) Some things can’t just be blamed on your inabilities, when I promised you that you could do all things through Me. When you’re supposed to have the faith of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ, Who strengthens me,” then you’re also supposed to live and act according to that faith! So, remember that you can do all things through Me, next time before the devil gives you the excuse, “But you can’t because of this…” …that, or the other! Amen? (16:77)

That little taste and groove of “impossible” for you is just part of preparation for the darkest times of history when it’ll take miracles to make it through each day… - Something to get you into the groove of “All things are possible to him that believes,” instead of relying on your own carnal abilities. (16:92) If there’s a seemingly impossible situation coming up, just remember that “all things are possible to him that believeth”(Mark.9:23)! (2016:100) It’s wise to give thanks and be grateful what you’ve got and express that gratitude to your Maker and Supplier of all things. (2016:108)

Gear your focus toward the Spirit! If all things come from That – since God is Spirit, Who made it all – it’s good to keep your vision and focus pointed There, toward the One Who made it all, and resist the temptations of him, who – although still a spirit, too – has caused creation to wind up as an unpleasant place for those who prefer the good over evil. (2016:112) I am the Word through which everything was made… If that’s what all things were made of, it should give you the faith that it should also enable you to make it through anything that comes, right? (2016:154) To make positive out of history’s greatest negative takes faith in the Word, which all things have been made and created of. Don’t let your feelings be the source of your faith, but make it the Word – which, after all, made all things! (2016:162) I gave My Promises on “all things,” knowing that a lot of what the enemy would come up with – far beyond humans’ capacities of imagination - you’ve just got to have faith in the fact that ultimately, all things are under God’s control, no matter what the enemy might come up with! Have faith in the fact that We Up Here can overcome – and thus help you to do so, too – anything. – No matter how wicked, evil and atrocious a thing our enemy will come up with! Just be ready and prepared for anything, so you can handle it through Our Promise and Power to enable you to deal with and handle all things! – Anything he might come up with! (2016:179) When things seem impossible, it’s the time to test your faith in the truth and fact of Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Since “I can do all things” basically means: There is nothing impossible! – Not for you, if you have that faith that I can do anything not only for you, but also through you. Right now you may not feel like being able to do all things, when you feel unable to do anything in the flesh… but that’s another factor of feelings and emotions: I can do all things through you regardless of whether you feel like it, or not, and of whatever you feel like! I can do all things through folks, regardless of what they feel like, whether they feel like I can do it through them, or not. (2016:181)

If all things around you were created by those Words, and I’ve been the Incarnation of those Words, as John wrote… there’s gotta be something to it that’s greater than what you can see. Can’t you see that? – By faith? (2016:182) Learning to deal with and handle the storms blowing around you… another big lesson of the School of Life, and thus, not really something to complain about, but take it as part of your curriculum, ordained as such by the Master of All Things. See, having faith means having it for all things that are happening… trusting in the Creator that He knows what He’s doing or allowing. (2016:192) If God’s a Spirit, along with the vast majority of His host, let Him show the world what is ultimately more powerful, being the Creator of all things! Remember that My coming to and birth on Earth where the manifestations of the Word becoming flesh by which all things were created! (2016:195) Put your trust in God Who is Spirit, through which all things were made, and you’re more prone to make it through than your own, physical capacities! (2016:207) Get more bound and connected to the Spirit World, where all things come from! Don’t base your moods on the physical conditions and circumstances around you, but grab hold of the Power to overcome them through prayer, through the Spirit! Remember that that’s where all things come from and all things shall return! (17:6) When the Word of God was made flesh, it signified the importance to pay attention to the One Whose Words ultimately all things came from. (17:14) It’s easy to stay nice when all things around are nice. But how do you handle the ugly ones? (17:16) It takes a lot more than mere natural human sense to figure out the sense and purpose in all things. (17:17) You can’t expect all things to stay the same. (17:25)

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Phil.4:13)” also means, without Me you won’t be able to do anything to see you through what’s coming. So, get used to the state of utter dependence on Me! (17:30) What can you expect of a world run by Our enemy? – The one who’d love to be the destroyer of folks’ faith? And yet again, what pulls you closer to Me and opens you for My input to send you comfort in desperation? – So, all things have their sense and purpose, even the devil’s evil attacks. (17:45) Remember “I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth Me (Phil.4:13),” but when it comes to doing things in your own capacities, it’s better to have the attitude “I can do nothing.” And thus remember what I told My disciples, “Without Me ye can do nothing (Jn.15:5).” If My Word is the beginning of creation and of life, it’s pretty much the beginning and Source of everything that matters and counts. So, can you blame Me for letting it become the most important factor in your life, when it’s pretty much the Factor all things come from? (17:68) Count on heavenly, not earthly reliability! Let it show you what it really means, “In the beginning was the Word!” - And “all things were made by Him!” (17:79) That’s part of the way of faith: to learn to deal with things which to unbelievers and the faithless seem impossible… but not to those who believe in My Words: “All things are possible to him that believeth (Lk.9:23).” (17:87) If the physical parts around you make it tough, it’s a sign to direct your focus on the Spirit! After all, isn’t that where all things come from, if that’s what the Father and Mother are? (17:93) Keep the faith that no matter how much circumstances and conditions down there are taken over by the enemy, when it comes to the final and ultimate Force that’s in charge of all things in the end, keep remembering Me, regardless of physical and earthly circumstances, no matter how dark and dreadful! (17:99) The Word through which all things were made will definitely be the right Source to make of you what you should be. (17:103) You’ve got to take the hard times just as you have to take all things from life as they come. (17:105) In order to make the best of life down there, it’s vital to stay connected to Me and on My wavelength of air, water, light and the Source of spiritual Life, and living through My spiritual input, through which - the Word - all things were made and created. (17:110) There’s another, much larger - though temporarily still invisible for you - Factor of all things that folks will have to learn about and become familiar with before all the Lessons of Life can be learned completely. (17:113) Without the Spirit - the Force that We blew life into Adam with - life is being reduced to a lower level - easier for the enemy to handle, and especially due to the fact that it draws folks further away from Us and the truth of all things. (17:115) Remember there’s nothing impossible with Me on your side! - And “All things are possible to him that believeth (Lk.9:23)!” Let that “all things” factor open up your horizon and vision beyond those physical limitations you’ve been drilled to accept as facts, and make the Facts of faith I’m giving you more powerful sources of your mindset! (17:116) The Word of which all things were made should enable you to overcome your fears and worries through raising your faith in the Forces through which all things came into being… (17:122) Trust in Him through Whose Words all things came into being, that He also knows what He’s doing and where He’ll be leading and guiding you once you made the decision to follow Him! (17:123) The enemy’s teaching that all things came by themselves doesn’t make it easier to believe in and honor the One that faith tells you all things came from… but what can you expect from a world taken over through man’s choices by His enemy, just to show the universe where that rejection will lead? (17:124) Don’t underestimate the Word! - All things are made from It! (17:127) Just accept the fact - or at least the possibility - that the Creator of all things has got some outstanding qualities that just might differ from yours, and might not be all that bad to accept! (17:133) Faith and trust in Me are becoming the most important factors to see you through what’s coming, and thus, the most important task you could think of is to keep them alive and growing through that “Thing” that made all things grow and come to live to begin with: My Word. Stick to My Word! - The Stuff that all things were made through and came from, and the Factor that will enable you to do many things others might not find themselves capable of.

Don’t underestimate that Factor of which all things were made and that was made flesh in order to die for you, so that you could live forever, along with all those who receive Me as well! Let them see through your sample that what matters most of all is what I have to say… if even all things around and beyond came forth from that! (17:134) The “impossible” times are coming, and Who do you need to make it through them? - The One Who promised that “All things shall be possible to him that believeth (Mk.9:23).” (17:135) If you need to know something, ask Me, Who knoweth all things! Put your faith and trust in the Light of the World, the One Who initially said, “Let there be Light!” - And there was Light! And stay on His Wavelength and keep receiving His living Words through which all things above and around you were created… and not the lies of His impostor, who got the majority to believe that all things created themselves! Take all things before you with a heart-set of gratitude and appreciation! - Taking all things with faith in Him Who brought it all forth, trusting that He knows what He’s doing and allowing, even when His enemy doesn’t make it seem like that! (17:146) If We can use you in spite of anything, it just sort of aims the glory in the right direction: Up Here, where all things came from. (17:147)

…Alternative It's got to be clear that you're not seeking to establish or enhance your reputation or career, but that your only incentive is to have the world see that there is an alternative, a different way of living, and it's being practiced by a few thousand folks around the world, and by the grace of God, you're one of them. (II:402) The more you show that you can live apart from the System and independently of it, the stronger your testimony and witness will be, because the more genuine will be the hope you'll emit to others, that there really is an alternative. The less you are affected by clichés and what people think about you, the better. (II:456) You're either advertising the world, or Me, the Alternative to the world, you can't do both. (II:591) People who put their cards on the other World, give others a ray of hope that there is an alternative. (III:331) The true alternative is a living relationship with Me, with real, living communication, and letting Me guide you into discerning between what is right and wrong in each situation in your life, and, of course, choosing the right option once confronted with it. (IV:119) There has got to be an alternative, and it’s got to be more than a mental or ideological one, namely a tangible, visible and real one, and that’s the difference between having it all in your head and putting it into action. (IV:167) There are many things that you or any other rational thinker might have known better than for Me to allow them, but do they really know all the factors involved, and whether the alternative really would have been better? (IV:203) I contradicted their system without making it an obvious contradiction, but by offering a better alternative. So, if you focus more on showing the attractive alternative, rather than pointing out all that’s wrong about the stuff they still believe in, you’ll also have a lot more success in your ministry. (IV:216) The only way the enemy’s system is ever going to work is if he can prove that there is no alternative, and if he can lock Me out of it: show that everybody is dependent on him for survival. (IV:219) A historic statement: there is an alternative to the devil’s System! (IV:234) I grant you your heart’s desires and personal liberty of choice to a certain degree, but sometimes it will turn out that you might find yourself not quite as capable of something you may have wanted to do as you thought, after all, and you might have to consider an alternative… Basically, it’s always good to stay open for any alternative option I might bring into the game, since I’m quite a bit ahead of you and up front and can see what’s going on from a wider angle, and what’s going to happen; things that are likely to affect your choices, actions, projects and paths you’ve chosen, and being yielded to My influences can come in handy then in order to be more flexible and avoid larger complications or dead ends… (IV:422)

I want to show the world that there is a different way, a real alternative… a way of trust in Me instead of in oneself and one’s own abilities only. (IV:481) Anybody can show off how well they can take care of themselves with the work of their own hands… Even in the poorest countries. Can you blame Me for wanting to constitute a statement that there is some sort of an alternative and a different way of doing it? (IV:496) Those who look for an alternative to the System are always just a small minority. (11:10) With Earth getting close to turning into a state of hell, there’ll be more folks looking for an alternative, which is Our and your heavenly Home! (16:147) That trend of falling for Satan’s nice-sounding lies has grown into a huge system and brainwashing process that only few choosing the right alternative chosen ones can snap out of. (16:171) To inspire folks to make the right choice all depends on representing an alternative to what the world’s got to offer, not just representing a fancier or more religious part of it. Doing My job means representing an alternative… and that is, Heaven’s and the Father’s Alternative, not just one of the enemy’s imitations of it. So, remember My job for you down there: representing the ultimate Alternative! As I’m teaching you that you can’t expect perfection from anyone down there, they also can’t expect it of you. But you should point them in the direction where they can. - Even if that’s a matter of faith, which again, you should do your best to inspire them to ignite and get kindled in their lives. Not an easy job? But yet, the only true alternative to offer. (17:77) Someone offering an alternative is the greatest hope to those looking for one. (17:95) I had to come to bring Salvation to free and save folks from hell on Earth and thereafter. Providing they’d choose to accept that alternative by faith. (17:102) For many to start looking for other things, options and an alternative comes through the experience that this world just isn’t where it’s at, even if the majority still largely settles for it and won’t want an alternative. So, what you should be keeping an eye open for is the alternative seekers, just as you’ve been one! (17:107) Nothing to be ashamed of in going a different way from the masses mainly following the enemy’s track of temptation. (17:121)

Offer as much as you can of the positive alternative you believe in! (17:125) Stay open and get ready for alternatives! (17:134) Let’s wait and see what happens when the boss of hell takes over completely and turns the Earth into his home, how many folks will be ready to accept My Alternative! - Even if it’s the Alternative of faith… believing in Something folks momentarily can’t see with their eyes down there! See - by faith - My Alternative, and offer It to as many as you can! (17:148)

…Asking God What Happened "What happened?" It's a question to which most people only receive an answer once they get Here. "Where did I fail? Where did I get off the track? What did I do wrong?" A life starts out quite promising, but then, somewhere along the track they lose the vision, the faith or the zest and they slide down the hill. "What happened?" Well, as you know from the story of Job, it's usually your enemy who's responsible for, or involved with a lot of what happened. Like the evil old man, Mr. Potter, in "It's A Wonderful Life," who unbeknownst to the hero of the story found his money & kept it, and thus caused many problems & trials... that's the way the devil works, too. He sees an opportunity to work his evil plan, to exploit others in order to spread out his power & convert innocent villages, homes and entire countries into one big "Pottersville." But with My believers, those who communicate with Me and are serving Me, I don't want them to be ignorant of his devices.

We're trying to expose the devil's hidden workings in your life. Hidden to you, that is. And you must ask Me every step of the way, as soon as something's fishy: "What happened? Lord, what has actually happened here? I can't see it, I don't understand it, I don't have a clue! But You do, so, please, show me!" There is a lesson in everything! Expose the devil's workings! Ask Me to show & reveal to you what he's doing! There are a lot of things going on in your life that you're not aware of, mistakes that you're making you're not aware of, forces affecting your life, etc. So it pays to tune in to the Spirit World to find out what they are, because I and your spirit helpers, are aware of them and can reveal them to you, if you're only interested enough & care enough to find out & listen. You must study & investigate at times in order to really find out what happened, what's been going on here, "who dunnit?" "Why are we stuck in a rut & don't seem to be making progress?" And that's exactly what We're here for: to let you know. You don't have to grope around blindly in the dark, clueless to the machinations of the devil & what he's been up to in your life in order to sabotage My plans for you. You can find out. That's what prophecy is for. You don't have to be ignorant of the Devil's devices, plans & schemes, in fact you shouldn't and must not! My heavenly forces are in a way like policemen or officers of law enforcement, and it is their job to catch and expose the culprit. A crime has been committed - or rather, countless crimes - and it is their and your duty to find out who was responsible for this. Who were the perpetrators? Who instigated it, and who were the helpers? Who was involved? You won't be able to solve the whole mystery of My workings in this life, but I'm giving you a glimpse. There's a lot to learn, there's a lot to find out, and only those who don't see it, those who don't have a clue to the vastness of all that is there to explore & to find out about, actually get bored with all the potential excitement around them that they're not even aware of. There's so much more going on behind the scenes that concerns you than you could ever even possibly find out in life. Even better than finding out what happened or why things happened, is preventing them from happening in the first place, through prayer. I can show you a whole lot of things that can make this whole thing called life a lot easier for you! I can show you ‘things thou knowest not’ – great & mighty or humble & small. But the things I show you will make all the difference in the universe. You've got to be savvy to My plan, you've got to be in on it, and get a clue of what I'm up to. And that's basically what you're doing in prophecy: you're getting a clue. Before you were clueless, but now you're getting a clue of what I'm going to do, and what I want you to. And everything all of a sudden obtains rhyme and reason. I don't leave you clueless. You may be clueless up until the point you ask Me about it, but once you do, everything can change. In that "New York Minute" when you come to ask Me anything, everything can change! The moment you realize that you don’t have a clue what to do & call on Me, then I’ll have a chance – the only chance there is – to right the wrongs. For only I can see what the devil is trying to accomplish, only I can see where the real danger lies. There are times when My children don't have a clue. But I can give you a clue. I'm the Clue-Giver! Haven't got a clue? Ask Me what to do!

…Awareness (/Consciousness) Each of you has the power to make a bigger difference than most of you are aware of! (11:50) Be aware of the fact that you’ve got something to give that not everybody does! (11:77) You may not be perfect, but that shouldn’t stop you from offering the Perfect One and the perfect Solution to their problems, regardless of whether they’re aware of them or not. (11:91) Becoming aware of a need is the first step toward improvement. (11:93) The main difference between those around you and yourself is that you’re aware of what’s expecting all of you, and they aren’t. (11:100)

Be aware of dangerous factors, especially in times to come with the enemy taking over the rule of the entire globe! Sometimes you’ve just got to become more aware of the dangers in a world run by our enemy and his crowd! (16:157) It’s good to be ready and aware of the fact who runs the place for now. (16:160) Becoming familiar with the enemy’s grooves within those right around you makes you more aware of them. (16:163) Troubles sometimes happen in order for you to become aware of their danger, and to remind you of who’s in charge of this world and getting ready to rule it in flesh and blood for the time of ultimate trouble and tribulation. (16:164) My sheep are usually aware of the fact that something’s wrong with the world they live in, and also the fact that they themselves aren’t perfect, either. (16:176) The awareness of the need for Strength from Above arises with the disappearance of your own strengths and abilities you used to rely on. (16:177) Awareness of potential risks and troubles has become a necessity. (17:36) Becoming more aware of a growing need and necessity is a plus. (17:41) As conscious and aware you are of the enemy and his spiritual reign over the world - soon to become physical, - you should stay more aware of the fact that what it means and includes for you is that daily battle against his evil. - His influences on you and your surroundings and against you - his attacks. And as you can tell that each day is being a spiritual battle, you ought to be aware of the necessity of defense. (17:125) Knowing that Satan’s about to take on his complete global reign of the Endtime, you should definitely become more aware of the need to stay in connection with Me, remembering that without Me ye can do nothing! (17:137) What could We welcome more than someone’s awareness of the need of Our grace, mercy and forgiveness? (17:138) It’s good to stay aware of what’s up ahead and expecting the world, even if circumstances may presently be more pleasant. A touch of desperation should always be there, as long as you’re aware of the fact who largely runs the world, and soon will entirely for some time! Remember and be aware of the difference between My ways and the world’s! Stay aware of the fact that desperate times are coming, and don’t let the enemy use the easy and more pleasant times to get you off guard! Stay desperate and aware of the fact that it’s not just “pleasant groove” down there in a world being completely taken over by our enemy! Stay on guard! (17:142) Stay aware of what’s there to fight against and resist each day! (17:145) Who do you think is easier for Me to use as a tool and channel? A person aware of their faults and shortcomings, or a selfrighteous one? (17:147)

…Backsliding & Desertion There's a great danger of others adopting this System mindset of cowardice and fear to be different, and when this disease has hit fully home, you will have lost another potential and powerful warrior from your midst and will instead have to deal with a constant potential traitor, since they will always be a voice of doubt, a voice for the System and for the enemy, dragging you the opposite way, instead of pulling along in My direction! (II:133) "The Benefits Of Backsliding" draw you closer to Me, keep you humbler and get you back on the ground of the reality of what your limitations really are. (II:167) The true believers would rather go down with the ship than desert it! If you really believe that this is My ship, then you will rather go down with it, when it seems as if it's sinking, than to jump off in order to try to save your own neck. (II:263)

The ego of the backslider is a diminishing ego, it shrinks, so to speak, because they have found and rejected Me and My truth already; there is nothing for them to grow toward or look forward to... just a selfish little existence with no other destiny than to finally return to Me. That's why backsliders and apostates are sometimes capable of greater evil than those who never found Me. The devil makes them mad at the unconditional forgiveness they received in their Salvation, and they want to prove that they're not worthy of it, that it was a mistake for Me to ever grant them that Salvation. The devil uses them to show what a "fool" I was, in his eyes, to ever save them in the first place, and die for them. (III:68) The worst thing to do is to assume the position of one who thinks he has arrived. That’s the moment you stop growing and making progress and thus start to backslide. (III:492) Turning away from Me isn’t really conducive to reaching the goal, except that I often use your strayings to help you see the error of your ways, and you learn how to tell which is the way by finding out which it is not. (IV:528)

…Beginning & End Even if what you’re doing may only seem like a drop in the bucket compared to what’s needed, it is a beginning, a first step in the right direction. It’s a small beginning to a greater end. It will take faith and perseverance to bring it to an end, and to have it grow into something stronger and more noticeable, but if you will keep it up, you’ll find the results far surpassing those of the usual carnal efforts. (III:379) It’s always the getting started that’s the hardest thing to do. More often than not I have started something with one man alone. (III:327) You’ll certainly get a lot more accomplished in the long run if you don’t just wait for extraordinary inspiration to hit you, but simply do it because you know you ought to, and keep working on something you started, simply because you should also finish it… (III:435) The Bible is not supposed to be the A and O. It is definitely the beginning, but it’s not necessarily the end, and all that there ever was for Me to say. (IV:93) Most people cannot connect the two points, the beginning and the end, they can’t see how they fit and belong together. Of course, they might, if they’d only read about it in My Book… Life does make sense, even if it seems to elude most people presently. It’s a story, carefully planned and concocted and told, from the beginning to the end. (IV:106) There is still a lot of stuff for you to find out and explore. You’re still much closer to the beginning than the end or destination of your journey. (IV:235) The good works that I’ve begun in you, will I not also complete them unto the end? (IV:358) I am He that has begun this good work in you and will also complete it unto the end. (IV:405) Often when you think you’ve come to the end (usually way before that ever really happens), you’ve barely even reached the beginning! (IV:523) Remember that things are usually hardest at the beginning…! (11:30) The end of the Millennium will bring about the final new Beginning of a World the way We desire it to be. (16:112) The beginnings of situations hard to cope with might be a factor of looking forward to the end. (17:113) The devil’s reign down there is what will have an end. For those who’ve accepted Me, there won’t be any. Just the passing from one worse state of life to a better… eternal. So, remember your Savior! - The One guaranteeing the happy end of it all, which for those who accept it, it’ll only be a beginning of something much greater than they knew before, and without any ending this time! So, the good news about the troubles down there: they will end. Whereas the good part thereafter simply won’t. The “happy ending” with no ending! (17:128)

“In the beginning was the Word,” and It’ll also be there at the end… for those who want to make it through the darkness, quite some time since I said, “Let there be Light!” (17:134) Remember “small beginnings, greater ends,” just as the seeds of fruits and plants that grow into huge results! (17:144)

…Behavior, Manners & Style Be careful with your words, actions and your behavior and always commit your sample to Me! Keep a smile on your face in spite of your hardships! (I:39) Habits and familiarity stand between that what you are and what you could be, between what you could accomplish and that which you actually wind up doing. (I:53) You're not going to touch or change anybody's life, unless you can show clearly by your behavior and the light in your eyes that you're different and truly have something else to offer. (III:155) It behooves you to recognize the seriousness of the situation and behave and act accordingly. (III:405) In order to win some, you’ve got to be winsome, meaning, your composure, behavior, attitude and spirit weigh almost more heavily than what you say. (III:421) Time will do the talking. Time will reveal who will bear the greater responsibility for any damage done, for any immature behavior. (III:440) There isn’t any macho type of behavior on record from My disciples after the infilling of the Holy Ghost. (III:476) Training yourself in the art of loving in the face of hatred, rejection and lack of love will also sharpen your skills and abilities to deal with unloving behavior on behalf of your loved ones, and instead of going on the defensive right away and withdrawing and reacting negatively and allowing their lack of love to produce more lack of love in you for them, you can learn to counter that natural process and stop the chain reaction and vicious cycle, and allow love to continue and go on, in spite of the adverse circumstances. Natural reasoning may tell you that they don’t deserve it, and it may remind you that you ought to play tit for tat and give to them the same as they gave you, to repay their bad behavior with more bad behavior on your end, but the path of carnal and natural reasoning isn’t exactly on the “winners’ list,” but it falls prey to evil and becomes one of its earliest victims. (III:491)

Only by making a difference in your own behavior can you convince others that spirit is superior. (III:531) My nature is of such a kind that I am constantly giving. But it would be naïve to assume that that’s supposed to be a permanent one-way process. I want you to learn from Me, adapt to Me, assimilate Me and become like Me, gradually, to imitate My behavior, and to be converted into genuine and selfless givers as well… (III:543) Authentic identity always creates good behavior, but good behavior does not always create authentic identity. Once you know that I have loved and created you the way you are, and will always love you unconditionally, then you’ll also be able to improve your behavior accordingly. (III:552) By approaching certain people on improving their behavior, you’re ultimately improving your situation. (III:578) When someone doesn’t really know Me, it becomes more difficult for them to know who they really are and behave accordingly… (IV:120) Sometimes physical changes can be helpful in bringing about inward changes, and if nothing else works and you simply won’t change your attitudes, behavior and mindsets voluntarily, then usually some physical change is the last resort by creating a new set of circumstances under which you’re simply going to have to adapt your behavior. “Because they have no changes, they fear not God” (Ps.55:19), in some ways means that, “Because they have no outward changes, they don’t have any inward changes.” Fear and respect of Me means obeying My commandments, which means adaptation from the usually originally sinful behavior to a different one. (IV:169)

Obviously, seriously erroneous behavior patterns cannot be changed effectively, except over time, and applying long-term disciplinary measures that really drive the point home, make the lessons sink in, and bring about definite, lasting changes. (IV:360)

Knowing how quickly it may all be over down there, you should pull yourself together and present the best behavior you can possibly come up with, remembering to be a testimony and a witness, in order to help others to find their way Up Here as well! (2015:223) An important lesson for mankind: as to what sort of being, along with his demonic followers, most of Earth’s inhabitants have been letting guide them into many of their actions and behavior. (2015:235) In order to receive blessings, one has to act and behave accordingly, in obedience to My Words and My will. Receiving blessings depends a bit on you and your behavior. Can you manage to behave accordingly? If not, don’t be too shocked that times are being a bit more on the rough side for you! Whatever folks do will reap some results, and it’s important to learn the right kind of behavior and doing the proper type of things in order to reap the more pleasant results of one’s actions! It definitely pays to get the point about behaving and acting the proper way. How hard or how tough life can be partly depends on your own actions and behavior. Pay some attention to your behavior, and do what you can to make it the right kind of behavior! Amen? The right kind of behavior is kind behavior! (2015:243) If you want My Power and Spirit to work in your life the way it should, you've got to stick to the heavenly Rules, and not give Satan the chance to let part of his hell to take over in your actions and behavior! (15:245) People’s behavior can stir up the Father’s anger at times… Kids’ behavior is important for parents’ moods, even if some mothers seem able to put up with anything their children do. But then, certain reactions of the fathers are more effective in teaching their offspring good and proper behavior. Whatever folks do will reap some results, and it’s important to learn the right kind of behavior and doing the proper type of things in order to reap the more pleasant results of one’s actions! It’s important to behave properly, especially when you have kids who might otherwise learn wrong behavior patterns from you! (15:246) As much as you keep up the vision of your true Home, the easier it’s going to be to let other folks know about It. Of course, part of its effectiveness would also be your physical behavior… So, if you want things to get better, it does depend a bit on you, your actions and behavior. (15:249) Having to go through the lessons to learn from mistakes made, or ungodly behavior, I’m afraid you’re just going to have to accept it and deal with it. If it’s hard to imagine that a God of Love could be so tough, maybe it should help you to get a glimpse of the other side of parents, the way your kids are sometimes or often behaving, and how you wish they were different, or even that you could chastise them for their misbehavior, realizing that the lack of correction isn’t turning out to be any good in the way of their behavior. (2016:12) If you’re not happy with the way your kids are acting, let it be a reminder of the fact that your behavior might need some improvement as a child of the Father, too! Let the things you have to deal with make you aware of what you might be making others deal with, and that you might not be completely innocent of the faults and negative behaviors you notice and are disturbed by in others! (2016:16) Let behavior be one of the no.1 lessons you ought to learn in life! That’s why you have to deal with trouble as a child of God: in order to learn to do and behave better than when everything runs so easily and blissful that you may be tempted to get spoiled through it. Disciplinary rules and methods turn out to be good for one’s behavior and character. (2016:26) If you act and behave the wrong way, you shouldn’t be too shocked if what you reap from it are the wrong and unpleasant results! (2016:32) If you believe I’m telling you the truth, you should stick to it, and base your attitudes and behavior on it! (2016:42) Learning to love – especially your children – in spite of their mistakes, faults and undesirable behavior is one of those things We’ve got to go through as the Creators of it all as well, and maybe just a taste of what kind of pain We, and especially the Father has to go through and deal with. (2016:44) Don’t hold too many grudges against your kids because of imperfect behavior, nor against others, even if their behavior’s far from perfect! So is yours, and yet… I talk to you, care for you and love you! (2016:45) If your actions aren’t bearing positive fruits and results, change your actions and behavior accordingly! Negative behavior and attitudes will bring forth negative results! (2016:49)

Life’s a lesson on what not to do, how not to behave and act, if you want to do it the proper way – Our way. It will all make the most sense when you get Here and find out how heavenly folks act and behave! So, to work on your acts and behavior is certainly one of the tasks to be accomplished down there. Making it your goal to please Us by doing Our will for you is definitely an advantage according to the rules and standards of Eternity, and not just gear your behavior according to the temporal, worldly ways of success! So, whose student and follower are you going to be? One of the founder of trouble through selfish behavior, or Mine, Who came to give His Life to those on Earth who’d accept Me as the Father’s gift of Salvation from the results of selfish deeds, acts and behavior? Making love the greater force of influence and motivation throughout life down there is a little tough to do, when the majority of those around you don’t. But be not as influenced by their behavior, but try to keep in mind Mine, and what I came to the world to teach and show as the better alternative! (2016:57) Don’t feel too sorry about yourself about the way others treat you, but try to improve your own behavior first of all! (2016:71) It’s enough for Me, if they manage to receive you. Of course, that should give you a little bit of conviction about the way you behave… and act, but as long as you just make the effort to do the best you can, trust Me that it’s already enough for Me. (2016:83) The dreadful acts and behavior of some of those around you are only a relatively mild sample of what’s to expect from times to come when conditions will be the roughest of history! (2016:91) If folks down there are treating you roughly, don’t let it bring you down or hurt your pride, but see it as part of the preparation for the toughest times to come, during which circumstances will be rougher by far, and – accordingly – people’s behavior and modes! (2016:97) No matter how folks around you act or behave, just be there to give and show them love! Even if folks around you aren’t perfect, and no matter what they do: show them love! Be kind and patient and putting up with whatever behavior… (2016:111) You have to realize that ultimately the decision to cut out sinful behavior is entirely up to you. (2016:114) If I and My input to you can’t even improve you and your behavior, what good could it seem to anyone else? (2016:120) When you can tell your behavior hasn’t developed according to the best possible mode from some of it, can you blame us for letting things get a bit tougher for you, when that’s apparently what you need? (2016:137) If your kids aren’t behaving perfectly, let it be a glimpse of what the Father has to cope with concerning your behavior! (2016:140)

Changes of character and behavior are necessary stuff to work on… and I hope My input will be helpful to accomplish that. I advise you not to look at man and the behavior and attitudes of folks around you – to gear your vision and inner setup not according to what you perceive by sight, but receive through faith. (2016:155) If you’ve got faith in Me but your behavior is still ruled by circumstances, it shows change is urgently required. (2016:162) The amount of faith has decreased down there, and accordingly, people’s behaviors and mindsets… many of them not anymore geared toward the good, but the evil that’s bound to take over the world, thanks to its wicked master – who, no matter how “good” he may ever pretend to be, will ultimately expose himself as the ultimate evil and source thereof. (2016:166)

Sometimes good times have to be waited for, and depend on the good things you sow, since that’s basically what you’ll reap from your actions, attitude and behavior. (2016:177) The way of faith makes the effort to see the good in the apparent bad, and behave accordingly: positively, anyway… not negatively. Deal with behavior, circumstances… whatever’s unpleasant to you, and don’t let it make you even more unpleasant for those who have to live with you by losing control over the sort of effect it has on you! What makes it tougher for your wife to deal with your behavior is that you’re supposed to be older and wiser than the kids… So, she’s expecting you to behave like that. Makes sense… doesn’t it? (2016:186) Human behavior is geared by what they’re used to. But I’m telling you that changes are coming which won’t enable you to continue in the same old modus operandi. - No more reliance on the flesh and own abilities! It’s time to realize that things can’t just go on the way they have been; so a lot of changes are necessary, of attitudes and behavior… along with the modes of handling things. (2016:191)

Be a living example and testimony of the extent to which God’s grace and mercy can work, which should bring more hope to other sinners than the sanctimonious aspects and behaviors of the larger portion of Christians! (2016:198) If things were going better before, you must have behaved better back then. When former behavior was better than the present it somewhat seems like: nothing learned from life, and no progress. The more you’re conscious of your dependence on Me, the closer it will draw you to Me, and you’ll see: the more positive changes in your behavior and personality will take place. (17:1) Ungodly behavior should keep you in a humble enough position, attitude and state of mind to accept the input of others around you, even if they might not have that connection with, or even faith in Me. (17:8) Having to go through the results of wrong choices made is pretty much the major lesson of this part of human history. And since most folks aren’t aware of that factor, those who are, should at least make an effort to behave accordingly. It’s a tough one to resist the influences of other humans’ behavior you lived most of your life under the influence of, but that’s just part of the task of learning to resist. (17:39) Seeing the - maybe a bit more rare - positive acts of behavior, and just making the effort to focus on them more than the negative traits, should help developing a more positive attitude and receptiveness. Putting up with different ways is something positive if you consider how different Our ways are from the common human ways and behavior. (17:65) If it’s true that one reaps what he sows, it must also be the case that what happens to you is what you deserve. Not a reason for complaining, but realize and take to heart what you could and should have done better, or could still make the best out of through changing your behaviors and attitudes. (17:70) Take behavior as one major NWO when it needs some definite work of improvement! Learn a bit more of acceptance of things and others’ acts and behavior around you that you need to learn to put up with and not let them have a negative influence and effect on you! Sure, it might include some more lessons on what not to do, and how not to behave or act, but if their behavior makes you behave and act even worse than they do, couldn’t that be that you’ve got a bigger problem to work on than they do? (17:78) Take it seriously, your responsibility to make the best out of what you’ve got and been given, through making the right choices and putting on the right sort of behavior! (17:83) Another lesson on what ugly results wrong choices can bring forth: Some - or most - of what has happened might not have happened under the right conditions, in a life run by different behavior, manners and life-style. (17:100) The devil attacks My supposed believers and followers the most, in order to make them turn out sickening in their behaviors to the extent that no one can accept the teachings they’re supposedly following. (17:117) You can tell from behavior that judgment is becoming a necessity. (17:124) With the weird acts and behavior of worldly folks around you, it’s just becoming less and less like your “home.” That’s why it’s important to keep your focus directed on your true Home through faith! (17:125) Where are grace and mercy more needed than when one’s behaviors aren’t exactly what one would consider the Christian type? Where are they more necessary than when sinful behavior is quite obvious, and not as well hidden as in most other cases? (17:138)

…Beyond It's wise not to look at the circumstances, but beyond, at the One Who controls them, and has the ultimate say in things. (IV:460)

Faith is dealing with the things of real value, namely the things that will last way beyond anything that’s to be found in the physical. (IV:462) I prefer to give you gems and jewels that will last beyond your immediate situation. (IV:477)

I AM the universe and all beyond it, and that’s why I can dare say that I’m more than enough to fill your needs. (IV:509) I want and need you to rise above the circumstances and look beyond, at Me, Who can and will master them all for you, as long as you keep making that effort to stay close to Me. There is a Realm that is greater and far beyond that which is seen, and that’s what matters. (11:1) Would I only want you to look as far as the eye can see? Or is there something beyond the obvious, some greater truth and reality that perhaps you might not spot at first glance? The voice of faith is the difference between what experience teaches you – or at least your carnal mind makes of it - and that which I’m really trying to teach you by all this. – The ultimate lesson that goes far beyond the short-term, often premature conclusion you come to way before you reach the goal and end of the road from which you can see things a lot more clearly. (11:64) Love goes beyond the expectation of perfection in others! (16:50) No matter what the circumstances are, look beyond them and rise above them! Look beyond what you can see with your eyes and keep your vision and focus on the more powerful Realm by faith! (16:144) You need that training of raising your faith in other things than the visible and tangible circumstances and conditions around you, since what’s going to see you through is and comes from the greater Realm beyond all that. (16:147) Even though the world’s geared toward darkness, set your focus upon the spiritual Light beyond it all! (16:155) Heavenly-mindedness will help you look beyond the obscure circumstances you’re having to make it through. Looking beyond physical circumstances down there is your only hope to make it through what’s coming. The sooner you look beyond the worsening earthly surroundings, conditions and circumstances, the better! (16:166) Don’t look at the physical circumstances, but at what lies beyond, which basically means: straight ahead of you! That’s what vision is all about that I keep mentioning: looking at what lies beyond. - Just a little bit farther than what your physical eyes are able to capture and behold. Looking at what lies beyond is what will give you hope. There’s more to come than what you can see. And with worsening circumstances and conditions all around, I’d consider that good news for you. See the good by and through faith in what lies beyond what you see all around you! Look a little bit further - in the spirit! The less attractive the physical surroundings become, the more interest becomes aroused in what lies beyond all that, which is basically where We are. (17:89) Look beyond the things around you that you can see with your eyes and apply the vision of faith! (17:91) Faith is not letting your life be entirely governed by worldly conditions and what’s going on around you, but by what’s supposed to lead, guide, direct and empower you from beyond and Above all that! (17:98) The ability to spot the positive within the negative is what the gift of faith is supposed to bring out in you, looking beyond what’s right before your eyes… the sight of faith. (17:101) What the searchers seek lies beyond what they can see. (17:102) Learn to see beyond the circumstances, and don’t let them affect you as much as what you can catch through your vision of faith directed at Me and all your heavenly Help Up Here, your future and everlasting Home! Make your circumstances bigger, by adding the spiritual dimension to them, which, in fact, is the much greater one, and one of the main reasons why spirit goes far beyond abilities of the flesh! (17:104) Don’t stare at the physical darkness, but keep your focus geared toward the spiritual Light! - Beyond what your physical eyes can see. (17:106) Look beyond the circumstances and see Me and your Future Home as the better aspect and direction to maintain your focus on! (17:107) See My brightness beyond the surrounding darkness! Faith needs to grow beyond what you can see and perceive with your physical senses! Look beyond the temporal circumstances of the flesh, Up Here, at the lasting and eternal values of the Spirit! (17:108) “All things are possible to him that believeth (Lk.9:23)!” Let that “all things” factor open up your horizon and vision beyond those physical limitations you’ve been drilled to accept as facts, and make the Facts of faith I’m giving you more powerful sources of your mindset! (17:116) Look beyond that gray sky out there, and make the effort to focus on the spiritual Light of Heaven!

Keep your mindset geared toward efforts of faith, not just taking circumstances with a grumpy mindset, but focusing beyond them and looking Up Here through faith! (17:120) If things around you seem like a shabby negative, look by faith at the great Positive beyond it all! Circumstances seem tough sometimes… too tough to make it easy to believe in Something Better beyond it all. (17:126) Don’t let the enemy and his circumstances drag you down, but look beyond by faith! That’s what you need: the positive vision beyond and in spite of all the negative conditions down there. (17:127) Still bound to the physical circumstances down there? I’m trying to teach you to look beyond them. No matter how much damage the enemy can do to you down there, beyond “down there,” there’ll be none of it left for you having to deal with. That’s what My Salvation’s all about. (17:128) Keep your focus aimed on Me, regardless of the negative circumstances and conditions the enemy may be trying to use in order to drag you down. Pretty much the top reason for not focusing on circumstances, but on the One beyond it all. A significant reason to aim your spiritual focus beyond what you see with your eyes, and to look at Me instead, by faith the Savior of any potentially messy situation you might get into or caught up in. Real positiveness even enables you to put up with negative comments your living partners make toward you. It just makes you look beyond and rise above that. - The positiveness of faith. (17:129) Keep in mind to aim your vision beyond the circumstances! The effect of unpleasant circumstances and conditions around you is a tough challenge of faith. How strong is it? What obstacles are you letting it help you to overcome, and get you to focus and aim beyond? (17:132) It takes faith to believe in a perfect God when He’s allowing imperfect circumstances to cope with, but that’s what faith is all about: Not believing just in what you’re seeing, but focusing beyond all that, toward Something Better coming! (17:133) Let others see through your sample that what matters most of all is what I have to say… if even all things around and beyond came forth from that! (17:134) A goal worth trying to attain and aim for: Faith beyond circumstances, their impact and importance… (17:135) One of the main points of faith: managing to see beyond the physical appearances. (17:144)

...Big Lie, The Someone who reminds people of their Creator will hardly ever receive a warm welcome among those who have rejected the very thought of their Creator, who have embraced the Big lie that life and the World with all that’s in it came into being by itself, just so they can keep doing their own thing without their conscience pricking them too hard... Things break. They deteriorate. They don't get better or improve by themselves, as the evolutionists claim. The only way you can grow in this life and truly gain is by acquiring spiritual riches that won't be corrupted. The only way to grow is in the spirit. Because your natural man decreases, it's actually dying. So you have to sow to the immortal, the spirit, if you want to play for keeps. If someone believes in Evolution - as much insight and truth they might have in other aspects - it shows that they have not grasped yet to which extent the devil is lying to the world, and how much the world is ruled by his lies. Evolution doesn't work. The only thing that will ever create something better out of something not-so-good is love. Love is the very force and source of miracles which could have made any such process of evolution work, and yet, at the same time obliterates the very need for such a complicated and unnecessary process. You won't find many evolutionists saying they believe in love as the thriving power or force behind evolution, because if they would believe in a God of Love, then they would very unlikely believe in evolution. Evolution is, after all, nothing more than the excuse for not having to believe in God, and a theory still based on "the survival of the fittest," which is, basically, the opposite of My philosophy of "the meek shall inherit the Earth." In order to really learn, you must forget all you know, or rather, forget all you think you know.

No wonder people came up with the theory of evolution. It's just that they got it wrong: this is not where you came from, but this is where you're going without Me. Instead of a bright, enlightened and charming mind, you turn into something that rather reminds others of an animal. Don’t feel too bad about being unaware of My miracle-working processes all around you at times, as you can tell, you’re not the only one. At least you’re aware of them most of the time, while most people never even acknowledge My presence nor existence at all, blatantly denying the possibility of My existence in spite of the plain evidence all over My creation. Pretty tough, huh? – Talking ‘bout not being accepted or included by those you call your own: Imagine you’re the Father & Creator of the whole bunch, & your children & your creation just simply refuse to even acknowledge your very existence! – ‘No, I’ve got no father! – I simply came into being by an unplanned, random process called evolution...’ If you think you have reasons to be frustrated sometimes, all I can say is ‘Welcome to the club!’ So what if your life is a mess! Look at Me! Every life is a mess without Me! In fact, this whole physical universe is constantly deteriorating without Me under the curse, and unless the Father and I would turn that process around someday soon, no flesh should be saved. Herein lies the deception of the enemy: the pretense of progress, that things are seemingly developing into a better state, that which he has concocted to be the lie of Evolution, when in reality the World is literally decaying and rotting away under his reign & influence, because he sucks the very life out of it. He is the reversal of life and of all that is good, that’s why creation is dying, groaning to be delivered, and I will deliver. The majority of the Creationist movement is being way too tame, too polite, too politically correct to shake people up! They're too timid to openly declare war against the Matrix! They don't see the spiritual background, the profoundness of the lie and atrocity as clearly as you do, that lies behind the educational System and the System's entire brainwash about evolution and other matters. They may have their beliefs straight on these things, but they're not militant enough in their attack on these issues. They're not bold enough, not brave enough, and in this, they're not following in My footsteps. You don't wake anybody up with a whisper. I said, what I whisper in your ears, that shout from the roof tops. You're dealing in truth (if anybody asks you what your business is), and the problem is that the demand for it is kind of rare, which is why you have to ignite and spark people's interest in it. Which is what's so interesting about the theme of the "Matrix." It's the approach of, "what if all that you have thus far perceived as reality should turn out to be a lie?" Because that's what it basically amounts to. "Would you be ready to experience the adventure of the truth?" The lie is easy, the lie is comfortable. It may even satisfy somewhat, like a drug, but it will never really and totally and truly make you happy. Like a drug, you may become addicted to it and dependent on it, and the thought of ever having to live without it scares you nearly half out of your wits. But you can offer these junkies freedom. Wouldn't you definitely consider such freedom from such an addiction a positive gift? Yes, it requires a miracle. First of all, they have to be willing to forsake this drug they've been so comfortable with, perhaps for all their lives. And then they have to see it through, to go without it, to start a whole new life of independence on that former crutch they were so used to. My sheep know deep inside that there is something else than the drug, the lie, and they're waiting for it, waiting for their liberation, waiting for the truth, waiting for the light to pierce their darkness, their false imitation of light, their "reality," which they can quite clearly sense that it couldn't possibly be all there is. The others are fine with it. They can keep pretending and playing the game until the day they die. The lie is like second nature to them, in fact, it's more than that; to them it is the truth, and some will even vehemently defend it. Never allow them to pull you down to their level, never allow them to think that for you it's acceptable the way they live in the lie, not condescending in any way, but expecting them to make progress in overcoming their addiction, piece by piece dismantling the lie they've been living thus far. You've got to state it in no uncertain terms. When somebody tells a lie, then say it, expose it: "That's a lie!" Don't let'em get away with it. Sure, you'll make enemies that way, but also lots of friends that count. Those who lie to themselves & prefer to live in the lie will always oppose you; all you’ve got to offer is the truth. ”Men loved darkness rather than light...” Light is always the strange new ingredient, along with the truth... The lie was so cozy & comfortable... so easy to live with... Living in the darkness is just drifting along effortlessly, but living in the light is a constant struggle & fight! It’s dangerous, because you’re exposed to your enemies, & they come to pick at you & see whether they can uproot you. The wind and the weather will test you severely, and the sun will sear your with scorching heat... But all this will only make you thirst for Me more desperately, will make you cling to Me for dear life, in utter reliance on Me, & that’s when I can use you. The enemy rules the realm in which you live right now, and I want you to be aware of his devices, so that you can fight him better & won't fall for his deceit. I'm exposing his lie with My truth. Just as I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, so he's the wrong way, the Lie and Death, and the more I expose him to you, the more power you will have to expose him to others as well, and show them what's keeping them captive. All I have to offer you is the truth! But the truth is all you need in a world of lies, in order to cut through & rise above.

The truth and the knowledge of the truth will help you rise above and free you from all the confines, simply because you're realizing that they're living a lie. You've got to expose the lie and the wrongs before the truth can really set you free. There are too many people out there who defend nothing but their own little truth. That's the result of Adam & Eve believing Satan's lie at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, "Ye shall be as gods." The problem is that when you have millions or even billions of little "gods" running around & everyone of them having their own "truth," it's pretty hard for those who are not as conceited to find out what to believe in and what really is the truth. Through the global brainwash – or rather brain-besmirching – you can tell that it’s the large majority trapped in and confined to the Big Lie, and ultimate persecution of representatives of the truth will be the Endtime’s result of it. (2016:149)

…Body & Health Part of your job of tending the garden of your body I put you in charge of is finding the right methods & remedies to your specific problems with My help & applying them. Not everybody can be a hand or a foot. Some members of the body have more stationary functions, more passive functions: they receive the poisonous elements of the body & purify them, like the liver, or they receive the blood that has passed through the body & pass it on, supplying it with fresh oxygen, like the heart & the lungs. Some are for mere decoration, like the hair... Others are there to discern among My people, like the nose. Your bones & body are aching, your stomach feels nauseated, you feel tired, but you can't sleep anymore... Time to get ahold of Me! Time to start learning to rely on Me for strength & as the only true Source of energy, & to give you a boost to help you to make it. At the core of each member, there's got to be Me, or the whole body won't be able to function together. Just like every living cell has a core, and that core has got to be well intact and healthy, otherwise it won't be able to multiply successfully and grow into a bigger organism. I am the Life that ensures a healthy cell core. As long as that very center of each cell receives the necessary nourishment and protection it needs from Me, it won't have any problems. But if you want a healthy soul, a healthy body and spirit, then you're going to have to stick to a healthy diet, one in which the rule applies that "less is sometimes more." When an old house deteriorates, it will need some work on it. It won't get better by itself. Likewise, your body needs some "maintenance," & some things & minor repairs done to it, the same way your car does. The tires wear off and you need new ones. Your teeth wear off, and you need to get them fixed... You can't say, "Oh, I'll trust the Lord to fix those tires." You can trust Me that I'll supply new ones. Likewise you'll have to trust Me now that I'll provide the right dentist, who's going to do the right thing. Taking care of your body is hard work, the same as taking care of a house or a garden... You have to keep it clean, and all the utilities running well. You can't just stuff it with whatever you like, endlessly. Sometimes you have to make a clean sweep, air it out & give it a break from consuming, consuming, consuming. What's happening when you're having health troubles is that they are like warning signs that things can't keep going the way they have. A break or a change is required. And, as you know, changes are good for you, including physical changes like changing your diet, or simply fasting for some time. Fasting is good for you; for your spirit and your body, and since you won't do it voluntarily when you're healthy, I'm having to allow these periods when you get so sick you can't eat anymore, or you'll just cause further trouble. Wash out your body! It's a good time to do that after the holidays during which you kind of stuffed yourself! It's so quick & easy to just prepare a quick fix snack, compared to the laborious process of preparing a full-fledged meal, but in the long run, your body will be able to tell and show the difference. Only once you realize that you really don't live forever, that your once young & energetic body isn't all-powerful after all, that there are certain things you just can't accomplish & cope with, no matter how hard you try, only then do most folks appreciate My rejuvenating qualities: when they're getting older; just like most folks only appreciate the doctor when they're sick...

Your particular body condition warrants a particular & individual diet. You're often not exercising your spiritual nor your physical muscles, but allowing both, your body and spirit to deteriorate. You're allowing death, weakness, deterioration and decay to slowly creep up on you and take the upper hand, instead of actively fighting for life. You need to take a more pro-life stand! In all living organisms, there are good things that work toward the furtherance and enhancement and procreation of life, and there are negative things, which also have their time and purpose, such as bacteria & other parasites, which are present a-plenty in any body, and just show that there is a war to be fought. Those bacteria are not your actual enemy, but help to keep and make your body strong for the actual fight. To enjoy yourself means precisely what it says: you can enjoy just being yourself, you can enjoy the body I've given you, the spirit I've given you, the life I've given you, it's nothing to be ashamed of or to constantly deny or to beat down. You must discern the voices that say which way to go, and you have to play it by ear and really listen to your heart, listen where I lead you, to the counsel you really personally need. It's like listening to your body to "tell" you what sort of food you should eat. Sometimes you just eat whatever is there or available, at other times you have to think, "what could we eat now?" At other times, you just eat for eating sake, and then again there are times when you figure it might be best not to eat anything at all... Not everything you do is obviously or directly an investment into Eternity: every meal you eat or shower you take, is not exactly an investment in Eternity, but it helps to keep your body going, which houses your spirit, and thus keeps you learning, growing and progressing. You're going to have to invest something into the here and now, in order to successfully bear fruit that remains for Eternity. Sometimes the investment is hidden or indirect. It doesn't make so much sense at first glance, but if you think about it... I cared not only about people's spiritual, but also their physical well-being, and I still do. Your body happens to be the vessel that I’m using to make any effectiveness of yours on My behalf happen right now on this earth, and in other words, without your body functioning well, nothing’s going to happen… What good does all the knowledge or wisdom do, if you can’t package it and present it to people in a feasible, attractive manner? What good all that talent, if it’s hidden and stuck inside a body that refuses to get out there and let it shine? Or to at least make an effort to stay in a shape and condition to allow you to do so when the situation calls for it? Keep yourself fit and your body in shape enough so that you’ll be able to get out My message and win souls and disciples. It’s just as important to keep your body in shape as it is to keep your spirit in shape, because your spirit alone won’t do Me much good wandering about this planet.

…Brothers & Sisters Imagine if parents on Earth wouldn’t have any cares and worries about having to come up with the provisions for their families, and on top of it would not be subject to sin and the devil’s temptation: Their children would be their greatest joy, and the major theme around which the large part of their activities would revolve. That’s the way your Heavenly Father, and His Queen, the Holy Spirit, care for you, watch you, rejoice in you, Their children. Imagine older brothers & sisters on Earth would not be driven by their own selfish desires, interests & motivations of usually only wanting to impress their peers or older ones than themselves (not the ‘real old ones’, you know, it always has to be just the right age group to be considered ‘worthwhile’ impressing): They would find their greatest joy in helping, tutoring, watching, and playing with their younger brothers and sisters, or those of their friends. Well, that’s how your many helpers on this side care for you, take their interest & joy in you, their younger brothers & sisters on Earth. They don’t spend their time on selfish pleasures, nor look down on anyone they don’t deem ‘cool’ or worthy, they are driven by My great Love, the driving force of our celestial realm to want to do anything they can to be a blessing and a help to anyone, great or small, lowly or great. All that is required is that you ask, and they will answer & intervene & help you with anything you might need help with. Life could be so much easier for Earth’s little boys and girls, if, instead of running around in a blind frenzy to get what they want, or even what the devil told them they should run for, they would acknowledge their heavenly brothers, sisters & parents, who are ever watching, ever caring, ever loving, ever willing to lighten their young charges’ load, to ease their path, to make their lives more enjoyable.

My Family is a cooperative, inter-dimensional, multi-generational body or machinery consisting of countless members behind the curtain which separates your realm & ours. Come & join hands with your older brothers and sisters who love you more than anyone on Earth could ever love you. We’ll fill you in on important details as to what the enemy’s next moves are going to be, how you should prepare, what pitfalls to guard against. Call us, your heavenly parents & older brothers, your Greater Family for help, the way a little boy would call for his dad or older brother when some evil bully is threatening him, or worse, trying to deceive him, kidnap him or deal him some poison candy! Those who mess with us don’t know what they’re getting into. Forget about the Mafia! You mess with us, you in BIG trouble! It may not always be immediately evident, & the wheels of My judgment grind slow, but exceeding fine, and they all wind up sorry, sooner or later! So, let this boost your confidence a little bit, next time you feel prone to be a little envious of this clique or that crowd, or when you’re tempted to feel inferior, because you’re not a citizen of that strong country, or you’re not like one of those rich kids or wealthy folks in their cool cars... Remember that you, yes, tiny little you, are part of the most powerful gang in the universe, the one who’s getting ready to rule and run the joint for good, and you’re in touch with the ‘Boss’, the Man on the top! I am He that breaks up selfish little couples and families, to make of the broken pieces one greater Family. My soul longs to meld with yours, I long to become one with you. And in becoming one with Me, you will become one with all the other partakers of My love in the universe. ‘Come together over Me!’ That’s the scheme! And the result will be one big, happy, joyful, universal Family, My Kingdom of Love! If you’re genuine, if you’re real, if your heart is covered and embalmed in My elixir of love, they’ll know they can trust you. That is how My Family & My children throughout time have been able to operate and survive against all odds: It wasn’t that they had any outstanding means, finances or wealth to back them up, it was a look into their eyes that told people, “You can trust them!” That is what you must learn to put your personal trust in, more than any other physical security you would want to render, or guarantee you would want to give to anyone: It’s My Spirit that counts! The Spirit of Love. Look at your Family in the Spirit! Seek contact with those who really have something to offer you! Put My Family, My Kingdom first, before your personal, carnal sense of belonging, & see how much I will bless you with greater love. This is and always has been the main purpose of the Family: to be My chosen mouthpiece to the World. What if My mouthpiece has gone mute? What if the salt loses its flavor? What if the light of the candle goes out? My stance on what is family and what isn't, is a little tough to take for those who are carnal minded & put their money on this World. Look what I asked of Abraham... That wasn't a very "family-oriented" thing to do. Look what I did to My own Son... Jesus: I had to forsake Him and let Him go and suffer a cruel death at the hand of the wicked & unbelievers. People could say, "What a Father You are, God! Tsk tsk..." But you see, My Family is a Family of the Spirit, and it's open to anyone who will, anyone who would like to join it, but in order to join it, you'll have to leave the flesh & the allures of the World at the door. Once you have decided you want to be part of our big heavenly Family, there are some pretty exclusive rules, and all that hog-wash from man's carnal mind, influenced by Satan, will have to go. I like to work in teamwork, and I don't just run a one-Man show up Here. I like to include everybody I can and allow them to participate in the work on the Big Picture. Ask yourself what I'm trying to show you through this. By having to deal with the matter of God Himself choosing to work in teamwork, you must ask yourself, "am I following in His footsteps in this aspect?" The great plan is that everything, and everybody will lovingly interact, teamwork & co-operate in one heavenly, ecstatic & climactic symphony... Everybody has an important part & role to play... everybody matters, everybody makes a difference, everybody can contribute, and we all need each other. I have chosen to work in unity and teamwork with My spirit helpers in order to set an example of what I want you to do. What's important is that you neglect neither side. It's supposed to become a teamwork of spirit and flesh. I want you to first of all learn to co-operate and work in unison with Me and My spirit helpers, and then, once you are being spirit-led, I want you to apply the same method and gear with your human co-workers, as well, all the while keeping in mind that just as I and your angels and helpers often need patience with you, so you need patience with those you work and live with in the physical... I especially delight in teamwork between the dimensions. You tell us what you need from us, and we tell you what we would like from you. That's how successful business works, even in the World. Talking 'bout 'free trade'. It can't get any freer than this.

You can be partakers of My sufferings and help Me carry My cross by helping your brothers and sisters to make it, by praying for them, supporting them, and doing whatever I show you and put within you to help them, lift them up and encourage them.

…Busy-ness Don't ever let your days become too busy to include Me in them! If you're too busy to take Me with you in whatever you do, then you're too busy! If you're too busy for God, then you're too busy! If you're too busy for love, then you're too busy! (II:325)

You don't have to feel bad about being busy! You just have to include Me in your business! Don't lock or leave Me out! Just take Me with you in whatever you do! Consult Me, acknowledge Me, check in with Me! (II:420) Don't let the enemy distract you with busy-ness, don't let him keep you busy, busy, busy, too busy for Me and what I've got to say to you! No way of taking care of My business if you're too busy for Me. (II:603) Folks have got to see the love manifested in flesh and blood in order to break out of their barriers brought on them by that spirit of busyness, and it's a lot more important to Me that you be living samples of My Love, than just another accomplisher. (III:155) You have to know what your product is, and what exactly it is you're selling and trying to sell. If it's Me, then make it clear! And if it's something else, then take into consideration whether that is really a worthwhile cause to be putting your name, your time and effort behind it! Is it something you wouldn't have to be ashamed of being affiliated with or having advertised for when we'll be considering your earthly works in the halls of Heaven? (III:244) You’ve got to mean business about My business! (III:355) Keeping busy is good. But listening to Me is better. So, don’t feel too bad about not being busy enough for others, and their criticizing you for the time you’re spending with Me! Ultimately it will turn out that you made the wiser decision. Doing what you could, based on the right input. Keeping folks busy fending for their survival is one of the enemy’s standard procedures of keeping them away from the opportunity to listen to Me. (17:14)

…Calamities You must work hard to prepare for the calamities that are about to befall the World. And just like Noah needed My exact instructions in order to be able to build the first ship in history, so will you, if you wish to survive the flood of iniquity. The time is truly drawing near and you’re feeling the vibes of impending doom. Do what you can and I will do what you can’t. The battle royal between those who trust in the flesh and those who put their confidence in the Spirit; those who choose Me for their Captain and those who choose to be the captains of their own fate; the former will sail their boats safely into My harbor; the latter, in their blind rage of pride and ego will crash into an iceberg, like the Titanic, and great will be the calamity and the cries of woe thereof. Once you have delved into My spiritual world of trust and where Eternity reigns and everything that lives and breathes knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm in perfect control of everything, then you can convey that same peace to others as well. Calamities may be all around, but you won't be heard to fret. People will wonder, "How can they be so calm while the whole world is tumbling around their ears?" And then you can let them know that it is so because you have been with Me.

Overcomers praise no matter what, regardless of any circumstances or conditions, regardless of any calamity, any problem, anything that might not be going their way. They know that despite all it may seem like, in the end, everything's going to be alright! You may think your present state is a calamity. One day you will see that it was the best thing that could have ever happened to you, because instead of continuing to cruise along in your life in indifferent complacency, your present crisis is just one of those factors to pull you out of that rut and routine, making you desperate enough to cry out to Me and ask Me to change things. It’s those times when you cry out to Me desperately that cause things to change for the good. What makes you “real” is the suffering I bring across your path without you trying to evade it. You “eat” it, and you don’t insist on Me having this cup be removed from you, but say, “Nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done.” Everybody has hard times and trials and sufferings in My service, but they don’t always swallow the depth of all that there is to learn from them. Not everyone is willing to really face the ugly truths about themselves that have brought their fate upon them. Some even refuse to recognize the calamities that befall them as such. They insist that everything’s okay. And in an optimistic sort of way, they’re right. Everything is going to be alright, so by faith they can say that everything’s alright already. Unfortunately, things have got to turn worse before they really get significantly better, and refusing to see the signs of the times, even their manifestations in one’s own life and family, isn’t always conducive to really learning the lessons behind what’s going on… Things are usually not as bad as they seem to you, and a lot does depend on whether you’re going to take on the attitude of “all is well” (2Kings 4:26), even in the face of calamities, or not. The best preparation for any calamity that might befall you is to stay close to Me, in tune with Me, and in prayer, since I for once can protect you from the worst, and secondly strengthen and comfort you if it should hit you anyway. Your strength and faith in the face of calamities will determine whether what you have is real gold faith that’s not going to go up in flames like paper money and paper money faith. I need you to remain trusting, even in the face of seeming calamities! If you learn to see things My way, you'll learn to view the hardest parts in life not as the worst, but as the best. You used to see My crucifixion as something dreadful, something that people wonder why it had to happen, until you realized that this was actually the main purpose for which I came, My greatest task and most important "job," My destiny. Even so it is with your crosses. You may dread them and you may rather have those cups pass from you, like I wished, but afterwards you'll see that they were actually the most valuable and most important parts of life, without which things would never have been the same... no victories won over the enemy, no precious lessons learnt... no beauty for ashes... The blackest night of My Life, My crucifixion, My darkest moment ever, was also My greatest, most glorious victory! I let them waste Me, devastate Me, completely wear Me out and wipe Me out, but in this I found the strength that never runs out. I was willing to give all, not holding back, and in return I received all. Victory is to be able to grab hold of My peace and heavenly Big Picture of My organized structure of everything in spite of the temporary chaos the devil tries to create. He may show you that devastated landscape he left you in in the spirit, but you've got to see My heavenly landscape and beauty of what's going to be and what really is in the heavenly realm, beyond all that ugliness the devil's trying to create! Sometimes you feel devastated. You realize how close you are nearly every moment of your life to the point of losing everything, when all you will have left of your substance will be your naked soul standing before Me. Not the figure of how much wealth you’ve acquired, how “big” you are in terms of numbers and figures, just you, your soul, who you really are. I have let your world come tumbling around your ears, in order for you to assure them that I'll still be there to hold and catch them when theirs will come tumbling around their ears... You will have learned and experienced My realness, My Presence in times of trouble, and you will have a very real faith to offer to people. Calamities happen. My crucifixion was the epitome of all calamities, and you’re learning what pattern they follow: After the death follows hell, and that’s where you’ve got to stay for a little while, until I’m ready to pull you out or the Father puts you pack on your feet!

…Care vs. Indifference Indifference is one of the prevailing sicknesses of society. (I:512) You've got to realize how ferociously the enemy fights you! There's no way you can afford to be indifferent or half-hearted about it! (II:274) Love equals the ability to show you share the excitement, instead of quenching it with the usual indifference and "coolness." Don't just remain "cool" or indifferent, but get excited! Spread some fire! (II:465) Caring for others is what life, the universe, and the whole purpose of existence is all about. (III:58) People will recognize that what you've got is something special, and they can't just ignore it or be indifferent to it. (III:61) It's easier and more natural to want the tangible, the visible, rather than the invisible, the eternal, when your children are concerned with temporal matters, and only with the momentary satisfaction, the here and now, oblivious to there and then... indifferent to it. (III:245) If things would be going too smoothly for you, you'd simply become too comfortable, too complacent, too much at ease and too indifferent about the state of the world, you wouldn't be moved into action to change something for Me. (III:366) Those who are truly interested will always be a small minority compared to the indifferent masses. (III:585) The attitude “The Lord will always do it for me, no matter what” can sometimes be somewhat snobbish and even wrong, if it causes you to be indifferent to the way you come across at people. (III:591)

…Chance The only chance you have is to bring the matter before Me. I’m your only chance! – The only chance for anyone to make it up that straight and narrow way which leadeth unto life, your only chance to avoid being sucked down that broad and wide gateway that leads to destruction. I, the Gardener, with My sharp ax of My Word, am your only chance against the devil’s evil magic weeds. The moment you realize that you don’t have a clue what to do and call on Me, then I’ll have a chance – the only chance there is – to right the wrongs. (I:285) It's not an exclusive thing to have Me as a chatting partner, Advisor, Helper and Counselor, it's something available to anyone who would only dare to give Me a chance. (I:498) Those people out there are the reason you're still there. Give them a chance! Give them the benefit of the doubt! You need to give them a chance before they can give Me a chance. Give them a chance to give Me a chance! (II:566) Give people a chance to give Me a chance! I work in all their lives, and the Father lets the sun shine on all of them, the evil and the good, and He sends His rain on all. ‘Let it rain!’ Let My goodness rain on anyone! (II:650) By feeding your enemies, you place fiery coals on their heads (Pr.25:21,22), searing their conscience and their minds with an imprint of something that happened there that they won't forget, and that they will be held responsible for. They're being given a chance that might turn their life from "not much of a tale to tell" into a beautiful adventure. (III:109)

Whenever you get the chance, pray! It will make all the difference in the world. It will show that you're relying on Me and on the Spirit to get it done, you're not just trying to pull it through in the flesh. You're giving Me a chance to work that way. Just give Me a chance to work through you, to shine through you! You're saying "yes" to Heaven when you stop to pray and give Me a chance to work through you. (III:122) If you leave things up to chance, or even the remote possibility that there is such a thing as chance, you're sunk. Only if you realize that all things come from My hand and are - contrary to what may seem at first glance - carefully planned, are you able to appreciate all the factors in your life for what they really are, the tremendous blessings in disguise you so often take for granted. You've got to be so absolutely sure of My hand and My doings in your life, of My involvement in it, that you don't fall for that illusion of chance for one minute... the delusion that perhaps everything is ruled by a universal cast of the dice, and the outcome is as uncertain as anything else in this life... (III:248) Just give people the chances necessary to stand before you clean and aright, just as I give you a new clean chance every day! Wouldn't you love it, too, if people wouldn't hold any of your past failings against you, or even their own negative notions toward you, and if they would just give you a chance to be accepted within their circle of tolerance, give you a chance to hear you out and listen to what you've got to say? (III:283) Give Me a chance to prove that it's worth it to trust Me! (III:286) The sooner you learn to get all your strength from Me and to put all your trust in Me, the higher are your chances of making it. (III:342) Mankind wouldn't stand a chance if we just left this world over to the devil completely. We're having to give him certain leeway, access and entrance and even power over this world, according to the degree that man's choices enable him to, but always and only "thus far and not further." (III:352) When you see all that’s going wrong, it seems overwhelming and you feel like you don’t stand a chance. But even some apparently puny, seemingly futile and desperate efforts to change things are better than doing nothing at all in resignation. Even a little progress is better than none, than standing still. (III:416) Just the fact that you are so desperately dependent on Me for anything ups the chances that you’re going to stick with Me till the end. (III:423) My goal is to get you to let Me do it through you, and as long as you may look as if you had all things rigged up oh so wonderfully by yourself, the chances are a lot lower, that that’s going to happen. (III:431) Give Me a chance, and watch Me go to work in others’ lives! You’ve got to have enough love and faith to give everyone a chance. (III:447) I need you to turn to Me for Strength, even if I have to make you feel temporarily deserted by everyone else. As long as you still put your hopes in anyone or anything else, you don’t really stand a chance. (III:588) Sometimes it’s actually quite good when for a change there is nothing else you can do but pray, because you’re giving Me a chance then, to show what can be accomplished by letting Me do it and giving Me a chance to work by commending the thing into My hands. (III:604) You want to be the kind of soldier that is going to stand a chance to win a battle, and isn’t just going to be shot down easily because of a lack of mobility. (IV:27) Your only hope, your only chance, is trust in Me. (IV:46) When somebody’s mind is made up about something you have relatively little chance to change anything about that, and you just have to let them go through the consequences of their choices. (IV:58) I will always give you the strength you need to make it through your struggles, as long as you look up to Me, consider and acknowledge Me and give Me a chance. (IV:86) Give Me a chance in spite of the protests of your rational mind or its sheer inability to handle Me and the entire concept for which I stand, the concept of love! (IV:100) A life without Me is an empty life, and you can change their lives from an empty into a full one. Give Me a chance to change their lives! (IV:108) The problem that seems to be so big and immense, I would just like you to indulge Me with and give Me a chance! (IV:109)

If I am for you and with you and fighting on your side, then who or what would stand a chance against you? What chance have all the odds against you, if I, the Son of the Maker of the universe, am fighting on your behalf and on your side? (IV:171) Give Me a chance to prove to you that I can be the best weapon, Guardian, Protector and Caretaker of your child you could ever wish for! (IV:180) There is no chance for redemption unless the problem and the need for a solution have been recognized. (IV:207) I can make out of you something beyond anything you dared to dream or think. Just give Me a chance, and I’ll prove it to you! (IV:215) The experiences of where self-rule and self-worship lead is what will convince most folks in the long run that they might as well give Us a chance to give them a break from the disaster they’re inviting by thinking they can play god themselves. (IV:265)

Through your weakness I have a chance to become strong in your life. (IV:325) When you feel like nothing, and worthless, that’s when I get a chance to renew you and make something for real out of you. (IV:331)

I give you lots of chances. That’s Me: the Chance Giver. I always give people lots of chances, especially those who give Me a chance to prove My Power on their behalf in their lives.(IV:357) There's the factor of those who never even get a chance to care for their lives properly because those who have more than what they need for themselves are too selfish to share it with them… (IV:396) The enemy never seriously had a chance, the only power he has over the world and creation is the power that man granted him by choosing to listen to him instead of Us. And since he doesn’t really have a chance, that’s also the reason why everything is going to turn out alright, no matter how bleak it may seem right now. (IV:425) If you’re not too strong, too smart, too handsome to try to do it yourself and try to get the glory yourself, then that’s good news for Me, because chances are that you just might give Me a chance and let Me try to do it through you instead of you trying to rig it all up in your own strength. (IV:432) I delight in using those who think they can’t in order to show them that through them I can, if only they’re willing to give Me a chance… (IV:477) Some people think that I am the creation of people, instead of vice versa; and I am looking for people who will give Me a chance to prove to the world the opposite, that I’m more than a mere concoction of some people’s minds. I want My evidence to be seen and noticed. (IV:480) Give Me a chance to prove My Strength and Power of supply to you, so that you in turn can testify of it, hopefully inspiring and encouraging others to give Me a chance to likewise prove My Strength on their behalf as well! (IV:482) In order to give Me a chance to bring desired results that will exceed the results of trying to do it any other way, you’ve got to spend time with Me! (IV:485) What if it is going to come to that, that you’re just going to have to trust Me? What if I’m going to turn out to be your only chance for you and your family to survive anyway? (IV:529) The times when you are less than satisfied with this world are the ones when I get a chance to really work in your life and bring about effective changes. (11:9) I like to surprise you with how much I can make out of nothing, if anyone just gives Me a chance. Give Me a chance to really work in your life to a greater extent than ever before by giving Me the priority, importance and emphasis in your life! (11:15) When you can just let things work out according to the wisdom and Plan of God, then you’re giving God a chance to be glorified instead of insisting on cashing in the glory for yourself. (11:35) Things could always be worse, and at the rate the world is going, chances are they will. (11:38) You don’t have a clue, and that gives Me a chance to guide you, show you what I’d like you to do and how I’d go about it. The emptier you can manage to make yourself of preconceived notions and head stuffing most people refer to as knowledge, the more I get a chance; and I don’t get a lot of chances to work through people in this age of “enlightenment,”

but when I do, things really begin to happen. The thing that qualifies someone as My prophet: he doesn’t have much of a clue on his own as to what to do, and so he gives Me a chance to work in him and through him and lead and direct him. (11:42) As long as they dwell in their little paradigm, that everything is the way they're being told, what chance have you got to break through with the truth? (11:48) Just taking it is what life’s challenge is sometimes all about. When you can take it in spite of your own reservations, doubts and skepticism, chances are that you’re going to make it. (11:53)

Just give Me a chance, and I’ll prove to you that you were right about putting your trust in Me against all the apparent physical odds! (11:55) You need more strength? A good chance for you to pray down that Strength you’re not going to get from anywhere else! (11:63)

If you really want to accomplish something, you’re going to stand a much better chance if you avail yourself of My Help and counsel in doing it. If you look at this world around you, what you hear and see is chaos , the result of people being busy accomplishing things without acknowledging Me, much less asking Me for My Help or blessing. You have the chance to become an exception to that, the general rule of things, the way they are. You can show to the world that there’s a better way to do it, namely by not ignoring the Creator of the game, but including Him in it! (11:87) Those who know they don’t stand a chance without Our Help are Our only hope! (11:102) Just give the rest of your life to Me, and give Me a chance to show you what I can do with it! (11:109) By giving people a chance to help you in order to support you, you’re breaking the vicious cycle of folks always and only doing what’s best for themselves. While blessing you in sharing with you what they’ve got, they and you enable Me to bless them more mightily than they could ever dream of being blessed. (11:110) You have a chance to make a difference, which may be precisely the reason why our great adversary and opponent in this game is trying so hard to make it unbearable for you. (11:113) You won’t stand a chance to make it through the times to come without Me and your Help from Above! Give Us a chance to prove the opposite and become a much brighter light to the world in darkness than on your own you could have ever been! (16:3) Cling to Us and our Help! – The only chance for anyone to make it through the dark times to come. – And definitely the only chance and way you’ll manage to be an encouragement to others around you during those times. (16:6) When you can’t seem to make it on your own anymore… well, that’s the time folks start giving Me a chance to let Me come to work in their lives. If it’s rough times, take the chance to apply for My Help, and experience the difference it’ll make! (16:31) The only chances to make it through the times to come are learning to depend on Our Help from Above! There won’t be much desire for success in that world… just the chance for survival without following the enemy in the flesh. (16:53) Seek Me everyday! – Whenever you get the chance! (16:62) The weaker you are in your own strength, the more chance I have to let Mine work in you. (16:66) A process to make you stronger and get used to tougher times coming up is necessary for you to have a chance to make it. (16:69)

Needing My Help pretty much for each day you’re passing through is not a bad sign, just a preparation for the toughest times of history coming up, and I would like to get you into that gear of dependence on Me in order for you to have a chance to make it through what’s to come. (16:72) In order to stand a chance to make it through the roughest of all times, you just need to learn to make it through the rough times, even if that’s not something you like. (16:75) Don’t get too discouraged about the bleak state of your conditions, but rejoice that in this I’ve got a greater chance to use you and work through you than when you’re all fit in your own conditions! (2016:79)

The more you start depending on Me, the greater and more realistic the tiny chance that you will make it through what’s coming. (2016:86) With the enemy taking over the rule of the world with the greatest powers available… do you think own strength would enhance the chance of survival significantly? So, feeling weak? – That’s when I’ve got My chance to make you strong through My Power and the Father’s. (2016:90) Clinging to Me and getting into a closer relationship with Me definitely has a purpose, which you will see the sense of, when nothing else would ever get to closely resembling the hope and chance of making it through. (16:92) The more you get into the habit of asking for My miraculous Help, the better, and the more chances you’ll have to make it through the times to come. Get out of the places where everything’s ruled by the desires and cravings of the flesh, and follow your leadings to where the life-style will be such that it’ll give you a lot more chances for survival through what’s coming! It’s not so much the pleasant conditions you ought to look out for, but the kind with the greatest chances you’ll make it through the dark times coming. Get tuned to My Spirit! – Much higher chances of survival during the times to come; trust Me for it! When it comes to survival through the days to come, another, less lazy life-style will be the only chance to make it through. The enemy aims to get most people addicted to the more comfortable ways of the flesh, in order to lower their chances of making it through what’s coming. (16:93) Don’t see the tough times as a negative, but as a positive and helpful preparation for what’s to come, that will lift the chances for folks to make it through those times! If I’m helping you make it through the rough times now, it’ll strengthen your faith that I’ll help you make it through the rougher ones coming. And even if folks around you might not appreciate it now… chances are, they will then. (16:107) Keep your hopes and your focus pinned and directed Up Here, where there’s a much better chance for you to get a victory than by focusing on your surroundings and conditions down there! (16:108) See the times you’re going through as preparation without which you’d stand even less of a chance making it through times to come! (16:109) Can you see the need for the rough times to help or at least give you a chance to make it through the roughest to come? (16:110)

Without miracles – the miraculous Help from Up Here – there’s pretty much no chance to make it through what’s coming! (16:117)

The better you’re able to take the roughness of today, the more chances you have of making it through the rougher times of tomorrow. (16:127) Didn’t it surprise you how much faith in Me grew during the 80s? – You wouldn’t consider that enough reason for Me and the Father to postpone judgment and give folks another chance? (16:133) I’m looking for folks who aren’t too self-conscious, and thus give Us a chance to work through them. (2016:136) Becoming a comparative nobody is My greatest chance to make something or somebody out of you that counts Up Here as such. (16:137) No matter how tough the road ahead of you, keep in mind the vision and focus to overcome! Your hope lies Here, in the Spirit Realm. So, stay spiritually focused and geared on It! – The only chance to help overcome what’s coming at you down there. (16:147) Sorry about the tough preparations, but trust Me that without them there wouldn’t be much of a chance to make it through what’s to come. (16:152) Learn how to cope and deal with rougher times and circumstances, because learning that will be the only chance to see you through what’s coming! (16:154) Relying on Me and heavenly protection is just about the only thing that stands the chance of seeing you through the times to come. With not many chances to make it on your own what you’re up to or against, let your existence be substantial part of the proof that there is Someone mightier than the overtaking forces of evil in this world! (16:166) The only reason you have to see it through down there is to give others the chance and ability to make it Up Here, to the true Home of God’s true children, too. (16:171)

It strikes you as a negative not to manage in your own strengths, abilities and capacities… I see it as a positive, and the only way you’ll stand a chance to make it through what’s coming, when physical and carnal abilities will amount to zero when it comes to depending on it for survival through the reign of our no.1 enemy and his folks’ preparation for that time down there. (16:173) Not much in it for you, as far as times coming is concerned, but hope for others, and you’ll be thankful when you get Here for having been able to be a blessing and a help to others, giving them the chance to make it Here, too. So, remember the purpose of life: not just your own well-being, but giving others a chance to make it into the better Hereafter! Do your best to make an effort to be a blessing to others, giving them a chance to make it Up Here! That’s the main purpose of life for My disciples. (16:176) Since faith cometh from hearing My Word, you’re doing the right thing to turn to Me for My input. – Knowing by now that you wouldn’t stand a chance to make it without It. (16:177) Trust Me that what’s coming is too rough to handle with mere carnal capacities and abilities! That’s why We’ve had to allow yours to be weakened, in order for you to rely more on those from Above – the only Source of Strength, Power and Insight you stand the chance to make it with through what’s coming! Sometimes things just have to be taken the way they are, and in a case like yours and other believers, taken with the advantage of the ability to avail yourself of the Heavenly Help offered to you in Our knowledge, that there’s just no chance to make it through what’s coming without It. It’s just the time to get used to that relatively new modus operandi of not working according to your own knowledge, but the one coming from Above… one without which you don’t stand much of a chance to make it through what’s coming. So, ain’t got no clue? Good news for you! – The chance for Us to show you what to do. (2016:180) Get used to the fact that your own, physical abilities won’t stand much of a chance to make it! So, rely on Me! Feeling weak and without a clue how you’re going to make it means I have a chance to work through you. (2016:181) Rough times are coming…of a roughness that you won’t manage to stand a chance to try and take in your own strength! You’ve got to stick to Me and get ever closer, so that I can lead and guide you where you might stand a chance. (2016:183) Isn’t giving others a chance to be right something that would make you humbler? (2016:186) Not much use in leaning on behavior patterns and experiences based on former patterns, and according to that, not much use in depending and leaning on what your brain may have managed to store up! What’ll see folks through will be what’s coming from Up Here… the only factor standing a chance to make it against the ultimate manifestation of force from down there… (2016:188) Keep your vision geared toward the happy ending of it all, even if you expected that happy ending to come a lot sooner! Don’t see it as a negative that it’ll come later than originally announced in order to give more folks a chance to make it Up Here! Got no chance to make it down there? Well, raise your focus to the Place full of chances Up Here! Just Give Me a Chance! (2016:195) I’m proud of all the strangers in that world who’ve got to hang in down there to give others a focus of Our much better Home, along with the chance to get Here. (2016:197) When you don’t feel useful anymore, give Me a chance, and let Me use you! (2016:199) The weaker you feel, the stronger I can make you in the proper sense of Strength. The more desperate for it you get, the greater the probability and chance that you’ll get it. (2016:204) I know you’re seeing the physical weakening of aging as something ugly… But give Me the chance to use it, and use you more in the state of not able to rely on your own flesh and abilities as much! Physical weakening gives Me a chance to do things through you… if you give Me that chance by clinging to Me and ask for My Help and expect Me to do it through you. (17:4)

It’s one of the enemy’s big and evil tricks to get the majority of society so spoiled that there won’t be much of a chance for them to make it through the tough times to come. (17:5) If things run just in their normal and habitual way, there’s not much chance for Us to get you into praying, much less uttering praise as a result of the recognitional Help you needed. The tendency and drift for things and conditions being on a downhill move is just necessary to get into a more desperate groove where you realize there’s not much chance to make it without Help from Above. (17:19) The less successful you feel, the greater the chance that you might be fruitful in bringing My type of heavenly success. (17:21)

Those used to a tougher life-style seem to have more chances and probabilities of making it through what’s coming. (17:28) Learning to deal with tough circumstances is part of, and being led and guided by Me and your spirit helpers is the general track that folks will stand a chance to make it through what’s to come. (17:30) When you don’t know how to do it on your own, the greater the chance for Us to play Our part, because the need for Us is there, and someday you’ll recognize that as an unexpected, positive advantage. The less you can do it on your own, the greater My chance to work through you. (17:31) Life getting harder and tougher each day is a sign of no more chance to make it in your own strength of the flesh, but a demonstration of your need for and dependence on the Power from Above to make it. (17:34) Get into a positively active gear in order to be blessed! Not much of a chance to just expect good results from basically doing nothing of what I’ve told and asked My disciples to do. (17:36) Clinging to Me is one of necessities to stand a chance to make it through the most troubled times of history coming. (17:95) By faith, rejoice in physical weakness, because it will put you in a position in which you’ll depend on My Strength from Above, the only one through which you’ll stand a chance to make it through what’s coming down there! (17:98) When the ego’s the most important part of someone, there’s little chance for them to spot their own wrongdoings and sins, and thus the need for Salvation from their eventual effects and causes. (17:102) Cling to Me as the Factor of Hope that you’ll stand a chance to make it! (17:108) My true followers have a greater chance of making a definite difference than the listeners to sermons once a week! (17:117) The only way to make it through the darkest times to come is through the realization that you won’t stand a chance to make it without Me, and the current rough times should be helpful preparation for coming to that realization. There’s no chance to make it through what’s coming without Me, My supernatural and miraculous Help and support for every moment of each day. (17:128) If you’ve been left in a weaker state than before, isn’t that a chance to give Me that challenge to manage to make a positive change and improvement out of it all, despite the forces that are telling you the opposite - the voices that are trying to turn just about everything into a negative? (17:136) Give Me a chance to make the best I can out of your situation through prayer! (17:137) Can’t make it on your own? Hurray! A chance for Me to make it through you, and thus get things accomplished that might not happen any other way! (17:147) To be dependent on Me is simply the only way you’ll stand a chance to make it through the times to come. (17:148)

…Character & Personality I’m making you over spiritually and as a person, your character. (I:84) What's most important to Me is your character and your spiritual strength. (II:71) Facing confrontation in a prayerful way is good and strengthening for your character and personality. (II:635) If you can't manage to convince your wife and children that you're a nice guy, and if you can't manage to make them happy and make them laugh every once in a while, then it's probably because you're not a nice guy, period, and you might have to do some serious work on your character. (III:295) What’s in My interest – and ultimately yours, too, is what’s best for your character, not your immediate satisfaction. (III:450)

Most people tend to think more highly of themselves than what objective observation and judgment would rule, that’s human nature. (IV:35) Sometimes your victorious attitude in the face of seeming defeat will be all the sample needed for people to see the strength of your character, which will lend greater credibility to what you’ve got to say and may make them curious about the Source of your strength. (IV:184) It’s during those times of testing, when the pressure is on, that your character and strength are being put to the test and must prove their worth. (IV:205) It’s a very good and valuable, as well as rare character trait to be able to give the credit to someone else, especially when they’re invisible, and it’s really good for your humility, which is one of the most valuable qualities of character per se. (IV:251)

Why I’m not allowing your life to be all as easy as a breeze, nor as comfortable as you would prefer it, but why there is some resistance you’ve got to deal with frequently: I need to strengthen your character and your resolve, the fight in you. (IV:285)

It doesn’t really matter whether your character is flawless or not, or how wrong whatever you do may come across to be, as long as you stick to Me, you’re on the right side. (IV:324) It’s not so much about how good you look, how fit you are physically, etc., but what really counts is your spiritual fitness and strength of character. (IV:435) You must be prepared for changes and developments in personality… (IV:464) Life ought to serve to shape you, mold you, purge you and frame you into a better character, form something nobler of you than there was before, and how could that ever happen without a degree of suffering, pressure and pain? (IV:500) Becoming the right person is a process… sort of like baking a cake: You just have to keep hanging in right there, under the right circumstances, the right temperature, etc., in order to get the desired result. (11:26) It takes a bit of strength of character not to keep falling back into the grind and routine of taking the easy way out, the path of the least resistance, and just yielding to the flow of the distracting chaos preventing you from bringing some kind of order into your life. (2013:41) Staying humble, and thus, not so critical of others is definitely a character improvement. Wanna try it? (2016:16) When it comes to your faith and attitude and thus, the characteristic spirit you move through, keep an eye on staying victorious! – Cheerful! – Positive! (2016:42) Keep the faith that your Creator knows what’s best for you in order to make of your character what He knows is best, even if that includes some hard times! (2016:47) How you manage to deal with troubled times is one of the factors that show your character. (2016:51) Rough times? Remember there’s a purpose for them! – Teaching you valuable lessons of life and trying to trim your character into a bit more pleasant, humbler, more patient and loving one – a more positive one. - Tough times to make you better. So, even if life’s far from perfect and a bit rough making it through… remember faith, the capacity of believing that the Father knows what He’s allowing to happen to you in order to shape your character and make what you’re supposed to be out of you! (16:102) Sometimes, when life’s been a bit too easy for some, and it hasn’t been too good for your character, the helpers Up Here recommend something that might turn things around in favor of a bit more positive personality, not just what they call down there another “spoiled brat.” (2016:137) Changes of character and behavior are necessary stuff to work on… and I hope My input will be helpful to accomplish that. (2016:155)

The more you’re conscious of your dependence on Me, the closer it will draw you to Me, and you’ll see: the more positive changes in your behavior and personality will take place. (17:1) To take for granted what one is used to is one of the typical human character traits, and unfortunately the only things that help folks to snap out of it and show more appreciation and gratefulness are the incidents that make them snap out of the positive-for-granted-rut. (17:19)

Let your incapacities dawn on you as something that might achieve some positive changes of character that former capacities might not have brought about! (17:25) Great and positive qualities are apparently not as dependent on what’s in the head, as what’s in the heart. So, one’s personality and spirit aren’t ultimately based on knowledge. – Another ultimate lesson on the superiority of spirit over the quantities of knowledge and stored up information. (17:27) Having to yield to someone else’s character helps to keep you humble. And humble is a positive (17:55) That drawnness toward the easy ways is one of the main weaknesses of character, and something to work on overcoming. (17:66)

Make the gear of acceptance part of your personality! (17:85) The first step to change the world in a positive way: to change oneself and make personality traits the ones others would like to acquire. (17:106) To “resist the enemy” is what everyone of My follower’s had to learn. And not just resist his efforts to drag you down in your moods, but especially the assaults he’s making on your character with the goal to damage and hurt others around you. (17:141)

…Comfort If there would be nothing to comfort you from, why should you need a Comforter? (I:519) Comfort others with the comfort you've found in Me! (I:534) You will be comforted by Me, for I have gone through the same sorrows, and by the Comforter, Who has wept since the beginning of time over the hardness of the hearts of the children of men, and the error of their ways. So, be comforted from your mourning, and let your hunger and thirst after righteousness be filled. (I:589) How do you become the "hope of the hopeless"? By having experienced the hopelessness yourself first, comforting others with the comfort wherewith you yourselves have been comforted by Me. You "pass it on!" (II:64) If you feel alone, you've still got Me to comfort you and to share everything with; to get the answers to all your questions from. But so many people in the world are much lonelier than you and don't know that My comfort is available for them, they're just waiting for someone like you to come along and tell them. (II:79) When you break through by faith, and you touch Me, or get in touch with your helpers, then you'll be rewarded with the comfort of knowing you're not alone. (II:80) It's a choice that everyone's got to make: what's more important, their own physical comfort, or comforting lost souls and therein finding the Comforter? (II:324) Away from the glamour of the ascended, down in the lap of the low, that's where you'll find the comfort of My Comforter. (III:208)

The dark times must come, and you must experience them, too, just as everybody else must. How else will you comfort them with the comfort wherewith you have been comforted by Me? (III:401) If you get enthusiastic about what you’re doing, the world will see Me in you, and they’ll warm themselves by your fire, and bask in the comfort of My voice coming through you. (III:475) Even though the trials, tribulations and castigations may be cause for present sadness, remember the reward, the ability to comfort others with the comfort wherewith you have been comforted by Me afterwards! (III:589) If you feel bad about being too weak to make it on your own through this life, be comforted and know that I don’t see that weakness as a handicap at all, but rather as a strength and an asset that will give you an advantage over others who will

have to go the long detour of finding out that making it in their own strength will not lead them to that closeness with Me where their innermost heart and core of their being would really yearn to go. (IV:136) You’ll be happy to be well acquainted with My path that I’m leading you in, so that you can be a comfort and guide to those who will be relatively or completely new to this. (IV:140) You can comfort others with the same comfort and reassurance that you receive from Me. That’s the best thing anyone could possibly do with their lives, pass My comfort on to others. (IV:233) Words seem like a poor comfort in some situations, but imagine the countless people who have to go through pain without My comforting voice… (IV:323) The betrayed, the despised by this world and forsaken, will always be the comforted in the next. (IV:324) Loss is simply one of those attached lessons of life that everyone has got to deal with sooner or later, and better sooner than later… You’ll be able to comfort others with the comfort you are being comforted with yourself, but unless you’ve made the experience, there’s no way you could ever relate to them… Be comforted that this is going to make you stronger, more compassionate, more real! (IV:335) I will not leave you comfortless nor deserted. (IV:436) How can you comfort others with the comfort wherewith you have been comforted unless you first have had a need to be comforted yourself? In other words, how can you help those in sorrow, unless you’ve been afflicted by sorrow yourself? (IV:493)

My Voice is always going to be a comfort to you that will not fail you or let you down. (IV:503) Learn the essential and valuable lesson of clinging to Me and running to My arms for comfort in trying situations, instead of running the opposite way because you’re mad at Me for letting it happen! (IV:524) Relax; as much as it may sound like a worn out cliché, everything’s going to be alright! – And everything has its place and purpose, or, as someone put it, everything belongs. - Even your pains, your inability to cope with the atrocities of your fellowmen… everything. (2012:112) “Comfort others with the comfort wherewith you yourself have been comforted” (2.Cor.1:4). It’s not for nothing that I referred to the Holy Spirit as the Comforter: This world is a troublesome place; and what a lot of people need most is comfort. People don’t know that what really would do them good is some peace and quiet and meditation for the times ahead when what they will really, really need is going to be some serious comfort through the darkest times this world has ever seen. (2012:142)

You can come to Me anytime for comfort and solace. And, after all, that’s what I promised to give through the Holy Spirit after My departure, a Comforter. Sometimes that’s all you need in this dark and dreary world. It’s a sad place, a sad race to get through, and sometimes it gets so sad, so frustrating, so seemingly pointless and depressing, that all you really need is comfort. Comfort from the pain inflicted by those who find joy and satisfaction in their destructive ways and thus see no need for comfort. Things have to get pretty bad to get them to the point of needing, accepting or wanting comfort, and it’s usually when they’re being reminded by the death of a loved one that their earthly existence they cling to so feverishly is finite and will come to an end inevitably. Comfort from the sad fact that they accept things the way they are as the way they are meant to be without seeking any change or salvation from it all… that they love darkness, rather than light… that they always prefer and cling to the lies, which are much easier to believe for them than the truth. (2013:79) Maybe that’s the only comfort there currently is: the fact that there’ll be a good ending coming to all this suffering currently having to go through, and thus look forward to that, even through the hard times currently still passing. (2015:135) Be comforted to know – by faith – that there’s Something better awaiting you, and it’ll be all worth it what you’ve had to go through, once you’re Here! (2015:177) Yielding to My leadings, even when they’re not it the direction you’d have preferred to go is a good sign, and you can feel a comforting spirit as a result! (2016:76) What can you expect of a world run by Our enemy? – The one who’d love to be the destroyer of folks’ faith? And yet again, what pulls you closer to Me and opens you for My input to send you comfort in desperation? (17:45)

…Compassion Pray for compassion for the sheep! Claim the keys of passion! Woo them like a lover! (I:205) You've just got to have a heart for people, be concerned about them, be moved with compassion upon them as I was and still am. (I:597) Focus outwardly, on the truly lonely people in this world who have not yet found Me! Have compassion and look for them, try to reach them, to find them! What about those that don't even know that there is a God to love? Those are the people I want you to have compassion for, the people I want you to reach, to dedicate your life to. (II:79) I'm hoping to enhance your compassion for others, your love and understanding. (II:214) Love edifies, it builds up that which is essential. The heart. The inner knowledge, and more than knowledge; the urge and compassion to do something about the things you know are right. (II:567) You ought to be desperate about making sure you did just what it took each day to make a difference in someone's life, to draw them closer to Me. That's what I'd call concern, dedication and (com-)passion! (III:12) The fact that life isn’t just rough for you, should stir you a bit more into the direction of being more compassionate. Have a heart! Don’t just feel so sorry for yourself, but have some compassion for those who just maybe worse off than you in the long run! (2015:195) Instead of letting the things that life brings make you angry, allow them to make you humbler and more compassionate, remembering that others have to go through far worse sufferings. (2016:47) Hell on Earth is what some folks have to go through pretty much all their lives, and it’s good for you to get a little compassion for them, share with them what they’re going through. Don’t you think it’s time to develop some compassion and go a bit through what others on this planet have had to go through all their lives, in order to help you recognize that need for some to get some heavenly Help and some Salvation from that hell on Earth and hell thereafter? Why not get more into the groove of sharing Heaven with those who’ve got to go through hell - on Earth – already? See the necessity for a bit of that taste of hell in order to develop some compassion for others who are having to go through it down there already, and may not have what it takes to prevent them from going there hereafter! (2016:185)

…Computers

& Us

My Spirit, the Comforter, Whom I will send unto you, will bring all things to your remembrance. If you walk in the Spirit, you WILL remember things: She will remind you! She’s like a super-duper-mega-smooth computer program that can enhance your rusty little system anytime with all the knowledge you need, brings up any stored data from the past, or even brand new information that hasn’t been there so far, in revelations, dreams & prophetic visions. All you gotta do is download Her & install Her on your system! Every little move & action of yours depends on a choice, whether you will react to the impulse with a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’, a 1 or a 0.... 1s and 0s,... that’s all a computer program is based on. Make your right choices today. Say YES to Me! Every time! As soon there’s some space for Me to fill it, I will. Tune in to My wavelength, log on to My server & press the download button, & as soon as My computer detects any blank storage space on your hard drive, I will fill it with the desired & needed input!

If you want to grasp the meaning of every day & every moment of life, start learning to read My signs. A lot of things you may not understand may be My handwriting on the wall, & if you seek Me & ask Me, I can reveal their meaning to you. To you, My brides of the End, it is given to read & understand the signs of the times. If you look beyond that which is at hand & seek Me in it, & the deeper meaning, it’ll be like reading the Matrix. It’s like learning to read computer programming language. I'm trying to help you to score points in the love game, so, I'm showing you what unselfish things you could do. Keep your eyes open for more opportunities like that. They're scattered & strewn all over, hidden blessings, sometimes well disguised, like bonus points in a computer game. Before, you've had a slow connection, and now you've got a fast broad-band connection. Take advantage of your spiritual flat-rate, and stay online permanently! Don't go off-line anymore! Stay online & attuned to Me permanently, "walking by faith and not by sight!" I want to be with you and talk to you always. Like this I'll be able to guide you much better & lead you by the hand, and you'll be doing & saying those things which I want you to do & say. Problems are more often than not being caused not by your circumstances, but your own attitudes, your "system settings." Your attitude affects the way you are going to function, just as the settings of your computer will affect its usability & effectiveness. If your monitor settings are too dark, then you won't see clearly. Or if your system is overloaded with too much clutter, that won't do you much good, either; it's going to slow you down. Set up a spiritual firewall against evil intruders! Don’t let them plant their spyware cookies on your system so they can spy out when you’re most vulnerable! Don’t grant them any access & make sure your firewall doesn’t allow any leakage! Run your spyware checker program regularly against any evil little intruders & keep your system clean of anything that might cause trouble! Only turn to safe sites for good, healthy, clean & uplifting input & don’t take any risks! Better safe than sorry! A spiritual firewall shields you from hostile intrusion & attempts of the Enemy to hack into your system! Keep it up & running & activated all the time! "You are a new creature, yes, but boy, how that old man likes to pop up again." It's the old man, your carnal man, which is at enmity with God, whom you must deny access to your system, the place from which you govern your life, like an old operating system that doesn't want to give up its realm easily, although it has already been replaced by a new and better one. Of course, the Enemy actively tries to install the old system again, your old ways of doing things, your old habits, or the old ways of the flesh sometimes in a new disguise. Sometimes you have problems downloading a file, and you've just got to try again. It all depends on how badly you want it. If you really want it, you won't give up so easily. So, how badly do you want today's latest update? You absorb the vibes of those around you, & if you pass them on to Me & commit them into My hands & ask Me to work in their lives, you can change them & change your environment, your surrounding – your world! I can give you the answers & solutions – the words & attitudes & actions those people need, individually tailored to their data, which you first transmitted to Me. You transmit the data, & I send you the answer, the update, the plug-in or fix-up, whatever they need. If you’re too tired to do anything else, there’s still sooo much you can accomplish through prayer! Life isn't only theory! It's important you grasp the theory, but the practical part is what will get you somewhere. You've been receiving it, now it's time to start giving it. Absorb & study it & let it become part of your being. You're one step further now. We've moved from receiving mode to application mode. You've received all the initial software, now you need to get going & get your machine operating. You'll still receive more information and occasional updates, but basically, your Operating System is installed now, and you can just work away! The devil is so scared of you, fighting you like crazy because he knows he's going to lose victims out of his clutches of hell, and they're going to have heaven happening in their lives. That ingredient of heaven is like a poisonous, deadly virus to his kingdom, his system, his Matrix! It totally busts it! It's like what the Spring does to the snow! It breaks the cold spell of winter & just makes it all melt away, and everything becomes possible again: where there was only cold and grey, all of a sudden, life springs up again everywhere! You can be like that to those people! You can be like the sun of spring to them! There was a time when your own strength was sufficient, but that time is running out now, it’s going to be over soon. Soon you’ll only be able to operate in My strength. But see it not as a loss, for what you gain is so much more and so far beyond that which you need to let go and forsake. See it like an upgrade, a promotion, a powerful innovation that revolutionizes everything.

Plugged in to Me, you are strong, because then we are together, and it’s not you functioning on your own anymore, as a separate little entity, but you’re plugged in to My circuit, a part of My gigantic, universal network, the network of My “single spoken sentence,” (“uni-verse”) where I utter a phrase and it is done, My creation magic. You can find Me right at the very center of your being, in your heart, the place you invited Me to come into when you received Me and asked Me to save you from your sin, your old man, and I did. I came in and have been living there ever since. That's why you can live from your center from then on, and you don't have to roam about the fringes anymore, the outer and superficial things. You have Me in you! I am your new Center! I am the new Operating System or Program that's there now at the core of your "machine," the complex creation of what is you. I'm not off in space somewhere, far away and hard to reach, but right there at the very core and center of your being, inseparable from you. That's why nothing, no high or low could ever separate you from the love of God, because it's right within you, very deep, right where I've planted it. Right where you allowed My key, My seed, to merge with your inner lock, and it has long taken root there since then, has been activated and has started to bear it's fruit and change your system.

…Condemnation There is no condemnation for those who walk in Me and live in My Spirit. (I:2) Don’t get bogged down with thoughts of self-condemnation! That's the downhill spiral and drift of the enemy! (I:516) Show the people that you're on their side; that you're not there to condemn them, but to save them! Your job is saving them, not condemning them! (II:541) Once I start using you, that's where the devil comes in and starts reminding you of all your old and besetting sins and tells you it's useless, or you're useless, that I could never use you. That's what condemnation basically amounts to. (II:612) It doesn’t help to be condemning yourself about things. I know your frame, and if I can live with the state you’re in and accept and love you the way you are, then you should, too. (IV:346) Love is always a better challenge than revenge and condemnation. I didn’t come into the world to condemn it, and neither should you. (11:114) How much more blessed to live a life of true faith in My never-ending love and forgiveness, than one that is framed and limited by man-made condemnation. There is no condemnation for those who truly live in Me and with Me, who truly walk and talk with Me and don’t just cling to man-made concepts and interpretations of what I’m supposed to be like, according to them. All this condemnation that religious people try to impose on others is not of Me and is the same spirit the self-righteous Pharisees wielded who persecuted Me and ultimately had Me killed. The spirit of judgment, of accusation and condemnation is that of the enemy, not Mine. In this, many of those who claim to represent Me in this world are actually more closely representing My enemy instead. (12:11) Free yourself from any self-condemnation, and trust Me, that We’re certainly not the Ones condemning you! (16:83) Don’t let the enemy condemn you for stuff he himself tempts you to commit! (16:156)

…Contentment vs. Discontent True satisfaction comes from a place which eludes the carnal mind, and you sometimes have to do the opposite of the expected to get there. (I:84)

Sometimes you’ve got to learn, as it says, to “be content with such things that ye have” (Heb.13:5). When the devil tempts you to feel discontent with your situation, just remember to take this as the portion of your cup that I’ve handed to you, not handing you a snake for an egg or a stone for a bread, but in the full confidence that it is good. It is My gift to you, so please, don’t despise it, even if you consider it far from perfect. (2012:133) What you’re having to cope with is what you’ve got Me for to help you deal with. You’ve got to keep in mind that this privilege makes you a target for Satan’s tactics and demons of discontentment, and you have to go on the counter-attack against them, not surrender in defeat and sink into this morass of self-pity! (2013:40) Being less concerned about your own contentment would be to truly find it: getting more into helping others to find theirs Up Here with Me! (2015:129) Not to be disappointed means to be content with what’s there… thankfulness. (2016:169)

…Crisis, Chaos, Mess, Disaster Be thankful for the times when things go wrong and haywire, for they indicate that you've been either going in the wrong direction, or that you've been neglecting some pretty important things. As long as everything's going alright, people just don't pay enough attention. When things start going wrong, that's the point where they'll start to listen up. "God, what am I doing wrong?" Usually those crises, when you realize your life is heading downhill for disaster, are precisely what help you to prevent it from really becoming one. Those times also make you more likable. All of a sudden you're back down to the rock bottom of the fact that you're not better than anyone else, even though you could have sworn you were, at the rate things were going. But alas, the curtain has fallen, and revealed that your life is a mess, just like everybody else's. (III:126) People blame Me for the chaotic state their world is in when it was really and always have been their own choices that were responsible for the chaos and the mess. (IV:113) You’ll soon have chaos on your hands, if you will just allow everybody to have their way… Just allowing things to “have their way,” and allowing whoever wants and has the urge to ascend to the top and assume that position, will result in total chaos, instead of organization, and basically, organization doesn’t mean anything else than avoiding that sort of chaos. (IV:124) The only thing that’s going to bring order out of your chaos and mess is if you hang with Me and keep looking unto Me, instead of letting whoever else’s flaws distract you! (IV:259) As messy as things may appear and look around you, you must not go by their looks and the apparent chaos, but know that there is an intricate plan at work, though well hidden beneath the surface of the visible realm, and everything will turn out to make perfect sense in the end, even if your carnal mind will beg to differ at times. One of the reasons why the enemy likes to wreak chaos in your life and make it look specially messy and chaotic is so that you will start losing faith and trust in that fact, that We know what We are doing. The mess is only temporarily, and what really counts, ultimately, is the final outcome and result, not the temporary state. (IV:300)

Life may seem one great big chaos, but trust Me nonetheless that I’m in full control, and what seems like a mess to you is a piece of beauty and art to Me, that many hands on this side of the veil are working on and involved in. (IV:347) What troubles Me more than an outward mess is the inward mess in the hearts and minds of people. (IV:422) The enemy likes to make a mess of things, but I in turn delight in restoring order from the mess he made. Your life might be a great big mess right now, but if you put it in My hands and trust Me, you may yet be amazed what I can do with it. I can restore any life, no matter how messy or chaotic it may seem… (IV:451) I will safely guide you through all the chaos around you! In fact, the greater the chaos, the more obvious My miraculous guiding and protection. (IV:456) My grace saves you out of any mess you’ve gotten yourself into. Watching My followers getting themselves into messes, so that I can save them out of them again, is simply My job. (11:11)

I admit, this chaos that life and this world can be at times is not exactly conducive to the conclusion that there’s Someone behind it all Who knew what He was doing. Let’s say, I let it become a little perplexing on purpose, otherwise it would hardly require faith. Another factor is the enemy, who likes to convert My order into chaos, and he’s not called “the destroyer” for nothing. He even got some folks to believe that everything came from chaos. It may look chaotic on the surface, but if you look closer, it begins to make sense, and that also applies to life. (11:19) The worst disasters come about when people pretend they have a clue and just keep going as though they did when they really don’t. (11:33) I can’t preserve you or keep you from temptation and sin. I can only save you from the mess that the result of them are going to get you in. (11:40) So, yes, life is a mess, but it could be a lot less messy if folks would pay a lot more attention to Me. (11:64) The messy state the world is in is not its original one, and its inhabitants are more responsible for it than the Creator. People simply have a tendency to make a mess of things, and that's precisely what happened down there, and it's going to take Me and My Return and intervention to clean it up. (11:66) Everything’s under My control, so if you’re in sync with Me, you can be peaceful about it, no matter how chaotic things might get (and trust Me, they’ll get worse). So, lighten up, and enjoy My Power to cause you to rise above any old mess! (11:68) No matter what mess you’ll wind up in, it will never be too late for My mercy to show you just how it could be done better, which is what will eventually happen on a large scale. But first you’ll have to grant the devil his turn to give the ultimate example of where it’s absolutely not at. (11:69) Yes, things are a mess, but there’s hope. Hope that things will not remain the same; that while they may be getting worse and worse temporarily, they will suddenly be improved and salvaged by Me. If you look at this world around you, what you hear and see is chaos. That’s the result of people being busy, busy, busy accomplishing things without Me, without ever so much as acknowledging Me, much less asking Me for My Help or blessing. You have the chance to become an exception to that, the general rule of things, the way they are. You can show to the world that there’s a better way to do it, namely by not ignoring the Creator of the game, but including Him in it! (11:87) The tough messes you’re in are the factors that draw you to Me, your Salvation. Without them, you’d be sunk for sure. The biggest mess anyone can get themselves into is thinking that everything is honky dory with this world. As long as I constantly remind you that that’s sheer not the case, you’re safe. (11:100) How much do you seek the Father to help you get out of your mess? You see, that’s why – from My angle – it’s much better for you to find yourself in a big mess, than not. Those who don’t aren’t even aware of any need for seeking Him. Those who know they don’t stand a chance without Our Help are Our only hope! (11:102) Your surroundings are a mess to show you that the world is a mess. Let it be an illustration for you of how imperfect the state of the world around you is in, with more mess and trouble coming! It’s also a challenge for you, to do what you should and can in order to clean up what’s around you! So, at the sight of a mess, ask yourself what you could do about it! Don’t just play the victim role! If things around you are a mess, let it be an example of the mess the world around you’s in! Let the mess around you inspire you to do something positive about it! (16:40) Take the circumstances as they come, even if they strike you as disastrous. Let Me take care of the disasters, and put Me in charge of them through your prayers! Confront the disasters with prayer, even though you’ve got to get used to the fact of circumstances and conditions less likely to change than your ability to make it through them! (16:159) If life strikes you as a disaster, it’s just a sign for you to cling to Me for Help. The current one may strike you as the most disastrous situation in your life, but unfortunately I have to make you aware of the fact that it isn’t – yet. Things will become a lot more disastrous and tougher to handle, so the current “disaster” is just a preparatory phase for the greatest disasters in world history. (16:160) If it’s all a bit chaotic, don’t be too shocked! – Since what’s coming at the world could easily be described as chaos or a chaotic state, so, I’m afraid you’ve just got to get used to that, and not be too shocked by it. The more chaotic the circumstances, the more you’ll need to depend on the protection, supply and more miracles from Above, and that’s simply the groove you’ve got to get ready for! (16:161)

Seeing what a mess the globe winds up in, should be a clear lesson of what one shouldn’t strive for or get into the groove of joining all the others to make out of this world. (16:162) Learning to get through strong winds is preparation for the storm! Likewise, unpleasant circumstances are preparation for impending chaos. (16:191) The world is heading for disaster, and if you describe your current days as “disastrous,” let it be another sign of My preparation of you for what’s coming! Tough to handle disaster, and disastrous circumstances… but you’ve just got to get used to it, and ready for the biggest one that has struck the planet so far. In other words, you can still calm down at the stroke of the disasters that currently strike you, since they’re still mild in comparison to what’s coming. And you’ll be grateful for the preparation mode once what’s on its way will be there. (17:32) One of the greatest errors of mankind is the self-confidence of “I can make it,” which is a notion of the enemy, when you should apply for heavenly Help from the messes and disastrous situations he rigs up in the world. (17:34) The more chaotic your circumstances and situations, the more you’ll recognize the need for My Help, protection and Strength and Power to make it through. And as that’s what’s coming at the world – its most chaotic times – it’s good to get ready for it and to learn to handle chaos. Just have that faith that We’ll create order out of that chaos, eventually! (17:55) Don’t see the state of physical inability - and what currently may strike you as “chaos” - as a negative! (17:57) Waking up to the fact of what state of a mess the world is in, is a bit more of what gets you to seek some improvement and positive changes. In order to get out of, or avoid chaotic and disastrous situations, prayer’s a necessity. (17:96) It’s good to get into the gear of learning to handle disaster. - Not to take the good and easy times for granted, as in “guaranteed” to always stay that way. Knowing My Word, you should get used to and prepared for what It’s predicting. (17:100)

As chaotic as life may seem… there’s some divine wisdom still in the production. It’s a tough job following the Son of the true God in a world being run by the usurper who wants to take on the “Godposition” and is making a lousy mess of things. The big challenge for Us is to make the best out of that mess he’s leaving Our creation in, and I guess you could term that part of salvation: being saved from the mess our enemy’s left the world in - with the worst part yet to come… Life’s a mess because you’re living in a world that’s being made a mess out of through the enemy and usurper of God… something He allowed to happen, since people seemed a bit more interested in what he had to offer, than what We have… We’d like to know which are the good ones to use in order to make a good world out of the helluva mess the first section of creation has been turned into. So, if life’s by far not turning out as prefect as you’d prefer it, just remember who’s currently in charge of the mess down there, and about to make the biggest chaos of history out of it! A lot of the life of faith for now is the factor how you’re making it through the helluva mess our enemy has left of Our creation. You don’t have a clear picture yet of how you’ll make it through that mess the devil made of Our creation, and thus, out of just about every life in it to some extent. But just make the right choices! - Our Plan? - Or the enemy’s? Or your own? (17:112)

To handle crises is just one of your tasks. - Learning to handle them with My Help. (17:113) The more disastrous the circumstances and the more unlikely someone’s going to make it, the greater the need for miracles… the part of things that has to be arranged from Up Here. (17:147)

…Danger It’s a dangerous life, and you can bet that there’ll be lots of vermin and pests attacking you, wild and ferocious beasts! Your life is an adventure, a true adventure!

Sometimes those marching with you through that dangerous marsh land and savage territory get weak, tired and wounded, and they seem to become an additional obstacle, rather than a help, but this is where I teach you that caring for others is even more important than your own headway, and laying down your lives for the brethren is what will truly get you to the goal, not just making sure you’ll get ahead yourself. (III:569) While the knowledge of evil, the devil’s input, may nearly always contain some truth in it, it’s his diabolical, evil slant and twist on it, and the wicked way in which He applies it to get you to doubt or mistrust Me, that makes it so dangerous. (IV:134) One of the gravest dangers that ever befell My people and some of My heroes was the temptation to please those I had called them out from, the established society. (IV:154) Those who rely on themselves only effectively manage to do so by ignoring the actual danger and the reality of their adversary, or by putting themselves on his side and kowtowing to him so he will leave them in peace. (IV:452) Self-righteousness could pretty much be entitled the most dangerous setback for believers. (16:50) Self-righteous anger is a danger! (16:120) Remember the danger of disobedience when someone else says it’s okay to do what I would tell you not to! (16:124) That wolves are something to be attentive of, since they’ll devour sheep, is another lesson, and not ignoring the danger, but seeking Me for protection is another important factor. You have to be aware of dangerous factors especially in times to come with the enemy taking over the rule of the entire globe! Sometimes you’ve just got to become more aware of the dangers in a world run by our enemy and his crowd! (16:157) The dangers will help you keep in mind that this world is not the place you belong, except for the job I still have for you to get as many as you can to join you on your voyage to the true Home for folks who belong Here, and not to the devil’s “kingdom.” They are another factor that shows you that you can’t make it on your own, and that you’re not just dependent on Heaven’s Help in terms of accomplishment, but also in terms of protection and survival. (16:160) One of the dangers of evil: It doesn’t portray itself as force of evil immediately, and has to be recognized once it’s in power. The loyalty of those to the evil force reigning the world during the final part of its current history will show the deceptive force of evil. (16:163) Be prepared for changes, problems, and aware of dangers, staying pretty much in tune with Me as permanently as you manage, to make sure you’re constantly staying under My protection! Troubles sometimes happen in order for you to become aware of them, their danger, and to remind you of who’s in charge of this world and getting ready to rule it in flesh and blood for the time of ultimate trouble and tribulation. (16:164) As far as the dangers down there are concerned, keep your prayers for Our heavenly protection in the “without ceasing” mode! (16:166) The dangerous times are there! You’ll have to be ready to deal with dangers and troubles just about anywhere in this world in days to come. (16:168) One advantage of experiencing Our Help to make it through rough and potentially dangerous events: raising your faith in and lifting your worries about the capacities of making it through the times to come. (2016:178) The world will reap what it’s sown, and if it’s largely selfishness that’s been motivating its folks, they’ll reap the results of it. Let it be a reminder of the danger of selfishness, and what sort of fruit it bears! (17:5) The dangers will become greater and tougher. One reason why you’ve got to get used to sticking to Me and Heaven’s Help and protection. No time anymore to take things for granted like security. (17:36) If you’re in trouble and danger, it’s just a preparatory taste of how dependent of heavenly protection you’ll be… (17:122) With the risks and dangers higher than ever before, experience should have cured you from the wrong attitude to take My protection for granted. (17:128)

...Desires As long as you're so full of what you want yourself, you're too busy chasing that, instead of trying and aiming to promote My Cause, which is usually not conducive to your own agenda. Serving Me is a choice everyday: who are you going to cater to, your own desires or Mine? (II:210) What you need is what matters, not what you want or think you need. (II:539) The grass is always greener on the other side, but only until you get there and have a closer look at it. (II:583) When you're young, all the voices of desires are so loud and strong, they often drown out the cry of your innermost heart and soul. Your desires for carnal and physical things had to go and be let go of, first, before there was room, a place and space in you for Me to fill, that's what letting go and forsaking all is all about and what it means and amounts to. (II:590) "They all seek their own" (Phil.2:21); everybody is primarily concerned about things they consider able to bring them happiness, safety and whatever it is they want. (III:21) I cared not only about people's spiritual, but also their physical well-being, and I still do. I love to provide and supply for you, love to give you the things you want, and fulfill your hearts' desires. (III:56) Sometimes you've got to show a greater desire and show that you want Me and My input above anything else. (III:274) I can't fulfill all your dreams and desires right there and now in this life, or you wouldn't be looking forward to what's there to come...

If I would let you get away with leading the life you please, you would hold it against Me when you come Here: "How could You let me get away with that?" (III:333) Fulfillment of your desires isn’t conducive to what I’d call true and real happiness. (III:450) I wouldn’t stand a chance to ever be noticed or acknowledged by you, much less revered as the ultimate authority, had We made your fellow humans more perfectly suited to your needs and desires. (III:469) If you’re just after the exactly same stuff in life that they’re after, money, fame, success and physical pleasures and comfort, then it’s going to be pretty tough to persuade them that you found what they’re looking for. (III:495) I am the ultimate fulfillment of your deepest desires. I need to refresh your desire for Me daily. I need to cultivate it. And in order to do that, I need to “prune” your other desires. The happiness you seek lies in the letting go of everything else and holding on to Me and pursuing Me as the one Pearl of great price most to be desired. (III:512) The true purpose in life is to please and serve Me primarily, and not live for and cater to either your own selfish cravings and lusts and desires, nor anyone else’s. (IV:137) I know which of your desires are going to do you and others good if I fulfill them for you, and which won’t. (IV:159) The big problem is that the primary thing people focus on is the object of their desire, whatever they think will grant them security or fulfillment of whatever happens to be their greatest need, more than on the Giver, the One Who gives all things in the first place. (IV:313) Don’t let your own desires direct you, but let Me be the Master over your heart! (IV:327) Those who live for themselves and their own desires basically do so at the cost of the pain of others. (IV:422) I’d like for My brides to see their desires fulfilled to the extent and for as long as possible, since hard times are inevitably going to come. (IV:442) Whatever you want, you can get it, if you really want it and make the effort of faith to get it: exert a believing will toward that thing you want, visualize it and trust that I love you enough to make it happen for you, even against all the odds of seemingly adverse or even “impossible” circumstances! What you cannot have, is everything at once. Sometimes you're going to have to decide what it is you really want. (IV:445)

It’s not Me, it’s your own hearts stopping you from getting what you want. (IV:487) Your spiritual vision becomes clearer by focusing on the Light, instead of allowing the fog of your own immediate, personal desires to cloud your vision, because they also put a greater distance between you and others. (IV:509) When the ego gets into the way of My will for a person, they put their own will and desires above Mine. (IV:520) Perhaps you’re giving some of the things you pursue and desire too much importance, neglecting some of the actually more important things, and that’s the reason why you can’t seem to find any lasting satisfaction in the things you pursue. (11:34)

There is the great factor of the desire of who you’d like to be, or as who you’d like to be seen, and that is the role which many people try to play as perfectly as they can, and some may be really good at it, but it still doesn’t mean that they’re actually being themselves… (11:59) Sometimes, even though a man or woman really want to do a certain thing, the means to do it are just not there; and no matter how strongly you wish for it, you may have to put that desire on the backburner until the conditions change. I won’t tell you that you shouldn’t do something, even if the end result may not be as you might desire. (11:83) You’re not having much fun or enjoyment in the there and now. Well, maybe it means you’re supposed to aim those desires in Our direction, the one that’s going to last… forever. (2015:54) Folks often want more than just what they need. Being content with what We’ve got to offer is one of those lessons of life, instead of being greedy and always wanting more and more of things, or fun, or whatever one can buy… (2015:116) See that desire for pleasant times alone as something of the flesh! (2015:117) Let the Spirit rule, and the material desires decrease! (2016:26) Don’t just gear your actions according to your desires and what you want, but become more geared toward Our will for you! When you pray, “Thy will be done,” do what you can to make it happen around you! “Thy will be done” means you’ll bow to the desire of what We want, and not just what you wish for and desire! Having lived a large part of your life gearing it toward the accomplishment of your own desires doesn’t make it that easy to gear it to the desire of your Creator Above when you can’t even see Him, but… well, that’s what faith is largely about! (2016:35)

See that desire for pleasant times alone as something of the flesh! (16:117) If you’ve lived a selfish life geared to your own desires, do you think it’s any wonder that as a supposed follower of Mine, what you reap of what you’ve sown isn’t what you’d consider that splendid? (16:137) The primary thing that comes to play the main role in lives is own ambitions, desires, physical necessities, and the challenge to meet them all in their own strength. (16:143) Carnal desires may be something to fight against, since they’re one of the major streaks of temptation the enemy tries to entrap you with. Can’t make out of life what you’d like, according to your physical desires? Maybe that’s a weakness to strive to overcome. Think about the job that’s there for you, and don’t let the enemy get you off the track with desires for pleasure and enjoyment! Carnal desires and pleasures are not necessarily a positive! (2016:154) It may be tough to see and recognize that cash or money are evil when they are what provides you with the things you need and want… but it might be a sign that you should gear your desires to the will of God and what He wants for you, and trust in the Promise that He’ll definitely provide you with the things you need. (2016:172) Aim the desires for better times at the better Home expecting you, since of the current times down there, I’m afraid there isn’t much of anything better to expect! (17:111) Giving My will and Plan for you a higher priority than your own desires and ways of looking at things should help you to strengthen the acceptance of My will to stick to your job in your life down there. (17:118) If you need and desire a positive change, the first thing to get that accomplished, remember, is to pray! (17:121)

...Discovery of Meaning, The Everything is a picture of a hidden reality. I’m teaching you the mysteries of the universe. My whole creation is a continuous message! So many apparently meaningless details & incidents start making sense once you start turning to Me. It’s like turning a light on in a dark room. It’s like learning to read: all of a sudden those symbols start making sense. So, if you want to grasp the meaning of every day & every moment of life, simply start learning to read My signs. A lot of things you may not understand may be My handwriting on the wall, & if you seek Me & ask Me, I can reveal their meaning to you. Tell people about the meaning of life! That life actually has a meaning, a sense of purpose. There is such a thing as purpose! There is such a thing as meaning! And what better and greater meaning and purpose could there be for you than conveying that knowledge to people? There is a place they're going. There is a destination to their journey, and thus, there is such a thing as destiny. Only that a large part of that destiny is in their own hands! It's up to everyone's own efforts to find that truth, that destiny, that purpose. They cannot just passively wait for everything to fall into place by itself! It takes an effort, a willingness to learn, a readiness for learning, a desire for knowledge, a desire for truth. It's sometimes a hard and tough job, just like Ann Sullivan's job with Helen Keller, to teach someone the existence of something they're totally oblivious to: the existence of purpose. But once you manage, it's like breaking through from darkness into light, and it will have been worth it! She had the faith that it could be done! She had the desperation and determination that it had to be done. Otherwise her own life would have remained meaningless. Even so, without your conveying the meaning sense of purpose to others, your own life is void of meaning, and the vicious, empty cycle of emptiness and purposelessness will continue. You must live in the conscience of your duty to break that spell! It's the Great Lie indeed: "There is no meaning! There is no purpose!" That's the myth and evil tale you need to expose and destroy! Show them that there is a meaning! Show them all you have been taught! Show them where to find God, where to see Him; help them decipher His handwriting, help them to discover His signs! Show them that despite all the apparent meaninglessness, there IS a meaning, much greater than they could fathom. But it's not beyond their reach! In fact, God is more than willing to reach out to them and show them and teach and tutor them, to talk to them, just as He has been talking to you! Show them that there is a way that they can listen, even though they're deaf. That there's a way they can learn how to see, even though they are blind! There is a way to know that which they know not of, that which they don't even believe exists, they cannot believe because they have been poisoned with the gas of unbelief. But you can revive them, resuscitate them, awaken them and bring them back to life! All you need to do is give them the truth: there is a meaning to everything. The type of people that stories are being told about, movies are being made about & books are being written about, are not the mere survivors, those who fight for nothing else but their survival, like all the rest of them, but the types who take time to live, to learn the lessons of life, who go through life with both eyes & ears open & find out what it's all about: those who find Me, and let Me teach them the gist and essence of life. Every day of your life is like a picture, which in itself is a piece of the puzzle of the big picture of your life, which again is a piece of My Big Picture of everything. Often people don't remember the important things in their lives because they didn't esteem them enough. They were too busy with temporal affairs, such as making money, and their lives with all the lessons involved, just pass them by. But I want you to take the time to remember. Everything is orchestrated by Me, everything visible is only a physical result of some spiritual truth, and thus there is a plan behind it. I'm urging you to see the invisible cause of the visible more, to open up your spiritual eyes, the eyes of faith. If you see the physical a result of the Spiritual, then it simply takes on a lot more meaning. You know I meant something by allowing this or that to happen, or even creating this or that situation. You'll know that nothing is without guidance, nothing is by chance; it's all going somewhere, and thus you develop much greater faith and trust with which to walk through every day of your life, and which you can then impart to others, too. Every day should be a vast scope and canvas of opportunities for you, of things to learn, and things to pass on. It shouldn't ever just be a struggle for survival. I’m teaching you personally through the school of life and your experiences, all that you have to go through, your trials and lessons… these are all ways in which I communicate and interact with you. They complete another piece in the puzzle of the deeper meaning of everything.

Everything on Earth is only a shadow of a heavenly reality... an image of something greater to come. The deeper meaning of everything is that there is a deeper meaning in just about everything!

…Dreams & Visions The Spirit will remind you! She’s like a super-duper-mega-smooth computer program that can enhance your rusty little system anytime with all the knowledge you need, brings up any stored data from the past, or even brand new information that hasn’t been there so far, in revelations, dreams & prophetic visions. All you gotta do is download Her & install Her on your system! There are many who believe in Me, but few who know that I’m present in every human being’s life every day, eager to interact with My children, to speak to anyone who will listen. For these are indeed the last days, in which, as I have promised, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, that they may prophesy, dream dreams & see visions, if only they be willing to receive and believe! When I meant for you to shoot your arrow into the unseen distance, do you think I was talking about physical distance? I'm asking you to aim for My Realm! My Realm is the invisible horizon I want you to shoot for, and the only place where you're really going to find your dream and its fulfillment. (Spirit Helper:) Find your dream! Anything is possible! You can go and be and do whatever you want! You have the power to

make it happen! If you really want to live your dream, you can do it! You've just got to commend that dream, that vision, that desire into the Lord's hands & pray for it to happen and for that dream to become reality! If you want a happy and fulfilled life, one in which your dreams come true to the most possible extent in this life, just make it revolve around Me, instead of trying to merely use Me as a means to your own ends. Someday soon you're going to fly! It's a promise I'm going to keep, as unbelievable as it may sound to unbelieving ears! That age-old dream... I'm going to fulfill it! I'm going to make it come to pass! It's going to be part of My great "Restoration Act Part 1," at the Rapture, which will herald the Millennium! The art is, when you aim and shoot for your goal on the distant horizon in your quest to "find your dream," not to forget that the place from which you get there is your present position. Your here and now is what's going to get you there, and it's an essential part of the plan and of the whole picture. The present is the only place from which to reach the future. And thus, what you make of your present (the gift of your being) determines your future. "Despise not the day of small things." Here and now, with all its little problems to deal with, is the foundation on which you're building that which is to be. The way to truly enjoy life is found by integrating Me in your activities, lives, plans, visions and dreams, to acknowledge Me in them, to enjoy it all as a gift of My hands. Haven't I always said, "according to your faith be it unto you?" And if you have the vision and burden for something, or a "dream," then by all means, grab it. Life is life for those who grab the opportunities, and not those who hesitate. Sometimes you've got to grab life's opportunities. I limit Myself to working through your faith. The connection & link between the physical and the spiritual - the manifestation of your hopes and dreams - lies in your faith. It's the vacuum that draws from the Spirit World that which you hope for. If you hope for something, then act & believe & have faith for it... walk toward the goal of the fulfillment of your dreams. You must not only hope, but also believe, in order not to be disappointed. Make Me the focus of your hopes and dreams, I'm the only One Who can fulfill them. I can't fulfill all your dreams and desires right here and now in this life, or you wouldn't be looking forward to what's there to come... You wouldn't be desiring My change and My revolution, My metanoia... Like this, you keep praying, "Thy Kingdom come!" You know that it hasn't arrived yet, contrary to the way some Christians seem to perceive things.

That’s the neat thing abut heaven: everybody can have their dreams fulfilled there, and yet it will all blend together somehow. Shoot your arrow of your vision, your destiny, your prayers into the future which is as bright & golden as My promises. Ask Me to open your eyes & expand your vision that you may be able to see those things which right now you can’t see, and I will broaden your perception. There’s more to life than what meets the eye. A picture is worth a thousand words, & the gift of vision can be an even more efficient & quicker way for Me to communicate certain things to you. Watch out for the great & mighty things of the Spirit I wish to show you! Come & see; taste & see. There is yet so much more to be heard, felt experienced and seen. I’m more willing to give than you are to receive. Tune up for the gift of vision! Get ready for Spirit-TV! Stop seeing things merely with the eyes of the flesh. If you look at people with the eyes of the spirit, you will see their true nature. Open your eyes to visions of heavenly light! You ‘ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!’ Open your eyes, & I will show you! I will give you visions of things that thou knowest not. There is no limit to what I can show you with the eyes of the Spirit. As the days grow ever darker, & you find ever less satisfaction in the finite beauties of the world, look for more, for greater things, beyond those seen with mortal eyes. Now that I’ve managed to stretch your vision toward further horizons I would like you to walk mindfully of this, your new vision, wherever you go & whoever you talk to & testify of My higher calling for you. Stay faithful to the vision & keep it fresh in your mind & on your heart everyday, knowing that there is a higher calling for you, a higher destiny that I have in store for you, & if I have promised it, know that I will bring it to pass! Prepare for it! Keep this vision & make it known. Keep your vision on that shining crown, that high calling of God! Keep your vision of the things I’ve ordained you to do! Tear loose from the little, insignificant distractions & mundane affairs of life! Trust Me for more. Enlarge your vision! Raise your goal, your standard & vision. Aim high! The future’s yours to claim! It’s yours! Grab it now! Keep the vision that you’re not of this World, that you’re pilgrims & strangers, & that you’re never really going to fit in if you want to be My disciples. Everybody wants to be accepted, nobody wants to feel or be treated like an outcast, but those who have decided to follow Me are never really going to be fully accepted by the System. Continue seeing Me in everything. Continue to grasp My vision, My way of seeing things. Continue looking to Me for guidance & direction, even correction, for better ways to do things than you have been doing them. The art is to keep the vision for the glorious things in the doing of the humble and mundane, little things of everyday life. If you manage to be real everyday, to walk humbly on the ground of My reality, staying faithful in the little, mundane things of life and keeping the heavenly vision while doing so, focusing on Me and My reality without being deceived by any of the devil's soap operas, then in My eyes that's a lot and people will sense it. They will feel it. The very air about you will be different. There will be "strange" vibes accompanying you wherever you go, of a world that smells & tastes so weird to them: the smell & taste of the real world. The Enemy hates My predictions and visions of the future & tries to ensure that the opposite is going to happen. His attitude is, "Oh, yeah, did God say so? Well we're going to see about that!" And he tries all he can to foil My plans. All he can do is try to delay Me & My plans by throwing a few monkey wrenches into My machinery, frantically trying to postpone My future, because he knows the future will bring his doom. You have a goal? You have a vision? Ask Me to make it happen! If you shoot for the stars, you might at least reach the moon, & the higher your vision, the higher you'll also fly. Without a vision the people perish. Without someone showing them what they could be doing for Me and for others, how they could invest some of their lives, energies & resources into My eternal cause, their spiritual muscles wither, their focus grows more & more narrow all the time, & the opportunities of what they could have accomplished for Me, and thus for greater & everlasting rewards, literally perish & become lost, so, it's your responsibility to make sure to give them the vision. Give them priceless opportunities to invest in eternity and My eternal values, as opposed to living visionless, selfish & materialistic lives. When I give you a vision or plan for the future, the devil will fight it, and it depends on all involved to ward off those attacks from the evil one, and if one link in the chain fails to see their part & the conditions they have to fulfill, the whole plan may come to naught.

If any party allows the Enemy to foil the plan, the final victory is going to have to be brought about by some other means, or even by other players... Don't view circumstances as obstacles, but as stepping stones, & rise above... Aim your arrow way beyond the horizon, beyond the scope of what you see... That's the kind of vision I want you to have, to break out of the confines of the familiar, to get out of the "think local" gear. Think universal! I don't create "perfect" humans factory-style! I take My time to shape each one personally by My own hand. I take infinite care in every little detail. You wonder, "What’s He doing that for?" But that's where you've got to trust Me that I can see the finished result of what you're going to be, I have a vision and inspiration of what the finished symphony of your life is going to sound like. I like to take the time to make it perfect. I'm trying to get you to shoot for something more than the immediate cheap thrill. Zooming in on carnal things, you neglect your spiritual view and insight, your vision. And thus it easily happens that you see things not quite as they are. I'm broadening your spiritual horizon. You confine your scope, your perception & what you think you know about the world to your own experiences, those things which you have already seen & heard & felt or perceived in some way. But there is so much more to discover, a whole new bandwidth to upgrade to, when it comes to vision and perception! This is only the beginning of a whole new world I'm about to reveal unto you! Why limit yourself to the same confines that all mortals do, when I'm giving you a chance to break out of them, by widening & opening up your horizon to a greater capacity to receive and perceive than you were ever able to before? Forever is the only reality that counts, as far as I and all My true visionaries of all times were ever concerned. Ask Me to open your eyes and to renew your vision! All the fancy images of distraction of the Enemy are disappearing, and now you're ready for My picture! Seek it with your whole heart. Just because things look far from perfect doesn't mean they'll always stay that way. Just tell'em, "Well, the picture is not yet finished." And tell'em to either wait & see, or to come to Me for a glimpse through My eyes, & I'll give them the vision of what it's going to become & what it's going to look like when it's done! The devil will tempt you with compromise. "Oh, but you can use both, the flesh and the Spirit!" But the more you fall back into the gear of the fleshly methods of support, the less emphasis you will put on My vision for you, of truly putting My Kingdom and My sheep first in your life! Focus on the new way, the new thing I am doing in your life, and on the goal and vision of its purpose, namely not merely to gain support and ensure your physical survival, but to bring true, eternal life to many, many souls who hunger and thirst for Me! Without a vision the people perish. If you don't know where you're going, you'll often get nowhere... When I called out Abraham & he went out not knowing whither he went, he did have the vision of that country that I promised him. He had a vision, & he got the fulfillment of it. He didn't have a clue where it was going to be, but because he followed Me step by step by faith, I finally gave it to him. It's time to start looking and to start walking. Get the boat into motion so that the rudder can take effect. It takes giving what you've got, or even what you haven't got, and as you give, I will fill that void! Come to Me each morning in order to get the vision from Me and be reminded of who you are and how much I love you. Whether people are going to accept the medicine you offer them, no matter how convinced of its effectiveness you may be, still always remains another question. But you've got to sell & offer it anyway, because you believe in it, and you want to help them; you know it's good for them. That's being a "soul doctor" & a missionary or a salesman for Me! You've got to do the right thing, you've got to continue producing the good stuff, even if it seems like nobody wants it. The need is there, and sooner or later you're going to come upon your "clientele," your "crowd," your niche in the market, the people who will have been just waiting for what you've got to offer. This is what I call (having) a vision! When you do something good, don't immediately rest on your laurels, but let it be only the beginning. There's lots more to go on to from there. Don't stop already when you've hardly yet begun! Stretch your faith; stretch your vision: there's more, lots more! If you see Me perform a miracle for you, don't limit your faith to that one, but stretch your faith and your vision & believe that I'm going to do the next miracle, too! Come out of your finite and limited world and breathe a whiff of My heavenly, fresh air of "no impossibilities" and "no limits." Allow Me to expand your horizon and stretch your faith, your focus and your vision and point you further than your temporary horizon that you saw when you were still dealing with the little numbers and limitations of the world.

The devil's goal is to limit everyone. Subtly, he does so under a cloak and pretense of "liberating" them from the supposed narrow-mindedness of Christianity and conservative religionism. He pretends to be their liberator, when he's really the limiter. I'm the one who opens the lid and stretches the horizon beyond limits, but he always tries to put it back on & keep everyone boiling inside his kettle. Expansion is the name of the game, as far as I'm concerned: expansion of your horizon, your vision, your faith, your spiritual muscles and of the range and limits you have known and conquered thus far. There's always more. Never let your mind limit you to that which you have already known before, there's always more to find out, new things to discover, to explore, to learn. Pray for new visions, new ideas, new methods and new territories to explore, for new souls, new people, new friends, new contacts. Pray for new faith for new things, new goals... pray for newness and change, a new outlook, a new horizon. Stretch your faith, your horizon, your vision, your outlook, your spectrum, your methods & expand! Look into which directions you can go which you haven't tried yet! There are things for you to do here, and your job is to find them. Your job is to make the best out of the situation I've given you and put you in! If you keep the heavenly vision and act as if nothing else matters, then whatever happens down there just won't be able to get you into a fuss. People still think that survival and acquiring those things that make it possible are more important than life itself. If the mere purpose for your existence were the insurance of your existence, that would be pretty stupid, wouldn't it? And yet, that's the way most people live. The mind often only sees the obstacles; it sometimes even creates them, whereas to be a pioneer, you need more than mere intelligence. You need to be able to see beyond the confines of the mind. Intelligence (and I'm talking about the average amount that people boast of these days), is not enough, it's too limited to accomplish any truly great and outstanding feats. Only those who can see further than the confines of their minds can break out & dare to go where no one else dared to go, do what no one else dared to try. Their minds simply don't know that it can't be done. If you put the right kind and amount of energy and vision into the little things, the right amount of elbow-grease, attention, interest & umph, then those very little things are going to get you far. If you project your long-term vision into your shortterm projects it can fuel them and get you a lot further than if you just go through your daily routines in a ho-hum kind of way. Keep your long-term vision in your short-term activities, goals & projects, and thus you'll be using those short-term projects as vehicles to get you to your distant destination. You can get more out of the here and now, there's more potential in the present than you've been making use of. You've got to not only look further, but you've also got to look deeper. There's more to see, both, in the far distance, and right before you, in the small, intricate little things of everyday life. There's more to discover in the distance and at home. There's more directions in which to look than one. Stop thinking you already know it all, so that you can be more open to My revelations. Don't be so sure you already see, but ask Me to expand your vision! Let Me renew you, your vision, your concepts, your outlook, your whole being. This day can be the first day of not only the rest of your life, but of a brand new life altogether, with brand new prospects, aspects and perspectives, a brand new outlook, brand new horizons, visions, goals, methods... all depending on how open you are for Me and My changes, My Grace! I bring new concepts, new perspectives, new pictures & illustrations to your mind to give you a renewed vision. Stretch your vision and expand your spiritual muscles... expand your horizon and look forward, look ahead! The real art of living lies in recognizing each challenge and task set before you as your special and individual, tailor-made destiny that only you can fulfill. Of course, that requires a good portion of faith and vision when that "glorious destiny" is a pile of dishes, a load of laundry or taking the garbage out. It's relatively easy to do some glorious job that's going to be noticed by a bunch of people. But those who can keep doing those little, menial jobs with that same vision are My greatest and truest heroes. Walk by faith, not by sight! If you always and only go by what you see, you won't walk the walk of faith very far. It's not about what you see, it's about what you can't see! Believe Me for the things that you can't see! Believe Me for them because I have promised them. According to what you see, I must be a liar, or I must have simply made a mistake, right? But wait and see! I'm not done yet. I'm not finished yet. And if you look at history, I've often used people that nobody would have expected the sort of feats from that they wound up doing in spite of all the probabilities that stood against those miracles ever happening. I know you even better than you know yourselves, and I know what you're capable of and who you really are, in spite of what you see now in yourself, and the failure that you see when you look at yourself. Only the true visionaries and prophets can see what I see. They don't see the failures and losers that those see who look with the eyes of the flesh only. But they believe Me for My promises. They refuse to doubt that what I have promised is true, and I will honor their faith.

Believing is easy when all the evidence supports what you believe. "Blessed are they who, not seeing, yet believe" (Jn.20:29). If you keep your eye and your vision of that heavenly goal and reward, you become a partaker of these things already here and now. That heavenly joy won't just set in when your life on earth is through and you receive your crown of glory. If you focus on the heavenly reward, part of it will already be yours as you focus on it. That's what gave all My martyrs, faithful witnesses and true saints the power to not give in. It was more than a mindset or the ability to rationally figure that someday in Heaven they were going to get their reward for it. They could feel that reward already, even while they were suffering. "Keep your eyes upon the goal and the victory in your soul!" It's more than a mindset! It's more than a feeling! It's more than a conviction! It's "the victory that overcometh the world, even your faith!" It's that "little strength" that you have and put to use by drawing power from Heaven that is much greater than your own! It's putting that "little strength" to use, that you've got, and making it work, and pulling down with it the tremendous power of God. It's finally getting your eyes off yourself, and your petty little problems and situations, and focusing where it counts: You may indeed be very small and seemingly insignificant, but you've got one mighty God, and He can make all the difference in the universe for you You may not see the plan, but I've got a very clear picture of it, and I can let you partake of My knowledge, My wisdom, My vision, My goals and My plans for you, and not for you only, but for this whole planet and mankind per se. In order to pour out to others, you've got to have a vision for them, and the faith for them, that they will take what you're going to give them and bring forth fruit with it. That's what shepherds do: they feed their flocks and bellwethers in hopes that they're going to lead others to greener pastures as well. Failure to inspire others is often due to lack of vision and faith to even start broadcasting. You underestimate their capacities to receive and pass on what you're giving. You figure they're not interested and they're not going to listen anyway, so why even waste your breath, your time, your energy? Visionaries are those who never consider their time, breath and energy wasted. They're those who have faith in their audience, and enough faith in Me to believe that nothing happens by coincidence, and if I have put these people there, as much as they may be on a "different wavelength," then I knew what I was doing, had a sense and purpose in it, and it's merely up to you to find out what that purpose is by letting loose whatever you've got to pour into them and then see what happens. Vision keeps your eyes on the goal in the distance and thus keeps you from becoming distracted by the immediate little issues of here and now and instant satisfaction. You're willing to chew your way through another rough stretch in the faith and hope that the outcome will be well worth it and make more than up for it. Put on your Don Quixote vision and see the beautiful beyond the ugly! You start receiving revelations and visions by making yourself receptive for such input and creating a vacuum and an interest for it. Allow Me to give you a steady and clear vision for each day to pass on and convey to others. How much of a “foreigner” in this world are you? How fixed is your vision on the eternal World beyond? Keep your eyes, your vision and your focus on the goal, and on what’s to come, on Eternity. It will take the sting out of anything you might have to go through in this life, any lack of happiness and physical comfort, any amount of suffering and trials. No matter what you do, and what is going to become of your life, the best is yet to come! Leave behind all those things that are bothering you, that may seem so important at the moment and seem to take your mind by storm, and come to Me and let Me revamp your concepts, your perception and your vision and focus for the day. Let Me wipe the slate clean and give you a new menu, free of all the things that would occupy your mind, and put on My mind instead. (IV:121) I don’t mind you having dreams. Find your dream! That’s an invitation from My Spirit. I want you to pursue your goals, and I don’t mind you having dreams, even if they may seem to be what some people might call slightly unrealistic. Many people have such dreams. And I want you to find and pursue yours and make it real and happen for you. Now reality has thus far proven to you that dreams are not very easily found in this day and age, or made to come to pass. But that’s one thing about finding your dreams: you cannot give up and quit looking too easily! Don’t give up on your dream of love! (IV:357) Who said that dreams always come easy, or that it would be easy to make them come true? Who said that it doesn’t cost some substantial effort sometimes, to pursue them? And isn’t that really what makes them all the more worthwhile and appreciated in the end? (IV:359) I told you there was a dream to find. Now, if it would have been too realistic, it could hardly be called a dream.

Dreams are made out of special stuff, and they’ve got that certain magic to them, that miraculous ingredient that it takes for Me to make them come true. No evolutionary process that might have happened any other random way, but stuff that requires prayer, faith, and nothing less than the very Power of the Creator in order to make it happen. Are you going to refuse to let the devil steal this dream away from you? Sometimes you might have to fight in order to make certain dreams happen! (IV:370) Finding your dream means to take that dream out of the dreamscape and go to work at making it a reality. (IV:373) Is it surprising that I’m expecting you to make some kind of effort in order to make that dream you have found a reality? That happens to be what it takes in order to make dreams come true. It may not necessarily be all carnal efforts, but you’ve got to make an effort of faith to believe that it’s happening, praise Me for it, as I have taught you, and not let the enemy cheat you out of your dream! (IV:380) A dream is something slightly different than reality, and in order to make it real, you'll have to take it from the dream domain and step by step work on the necessary preparations to make it happen in the real world. It takes faith in order to build your dream. (IV:388) Are you going to walk toward that distant horizon in order to find that dream and make it reality, in spite of all the adverse circumstances, obstacles and odds against it? (IV:410) The goal and ultimate vision of finding your dream is not in finding the right situation, opportunity or even group of people to make it happen with, but it’s about you being that person to make it happen. (IV:498) Sometimes it takes a little patience and waiting for the right moment for your dream to be able to crystallize. It certainly will cost to make the time for the things you need to do in order for that dream to happen. If I’ve been telling you to find your dream, keep in mind that the possibility is open that I was talking about a different kind of dream than you may have had in mind! So, don’t view it as failure or as having missed the mark if your path does not seem to coincide with your personal dreams and visions and what you originally had in mind, but trust that I can change the path as you go and develop it into something different, but always ultimately better than your own idea! (11:35) The reality of “finding your dream” also entails having to fight for your dream to an extent! You feel as though I promised you a dream to find, when much of what you’ve encountered since may by your definition have resembled more of a nightmare, and at times you’re wondering if you’re in the right dream, after all… Well, all I can say is that at times it takes an effort and a certain amount of time to get your dream to work, and learning to cope with the differences between what you’d ideally imagine a situation to be like and its reality, is part of the price many have had to pay in order to make their dreams become a reality. It’s building a bridge between the dream and reality that’s really the tricky part about making dreams come true. Your dream is what you make it! Your dream is your future as you would envision it to be, the place where you reach and fulfill your full potential and you feel and know that you’re fulfilling your destiny and are doing what you were made and born to do! Finding your dream ultimately may resemble something different than what your flesh would have envisioned or chosen or made out of it… (11:47) What if the dream I have planted in your heart to find isn’t just a dream, after all, but something that is coming more true than all their shadows of reality that presently define your and their finite dimension? What if? (11:113)

…Easiness vs. Difficulties It just so happens that this particular time in which you’re living is not part of what you’d consider easy times. While you have been making it as easy on yourself as you could, there’s no way out anymore, no more chance to avoid the wind and the rain, and you’ve just got to let it blow and bear it the best you can. (III:406) Life is hard for a reason. Look at those for whom life has always been soft and easy, and how they turned out as a result! (III:408)

A lot of people follow their natural tendencies to seek the easy way out, and if there are people willing to serve them, they gladly accept that offer.

But as in regard to many other things that life brings along: you don’t have to take everything that the devil has to offer. If you know it’s not good for you, refuse it! Otherwise you’ll just become more and more spoiled as the days roll by, and things won’t become easier for you that way! (III:467)

“The easy way out” often will have its painful consequences in the long run! (III:487) It’s natural to want to make it easy on yourself. Everybody does that all the time, spend their lives trying to make it as easy on themselves as possible, or ensuring that someday they’re going to have it as easy as possible… But that’s not My goal for My disciples. My prospect for My disciples has always been the cross. Take up your cross daily and follow Me. That has been My message. Not, follow Me, and I will promise you days of ease and plenty! That sounds more like the devil’s gospel. (III:543) Tough experiences are infinitely more valuable than happy and easy times. It’s natural to prefer to have only easy times, but the hard times are what life is really all about, and without them, life would lose the major chunk of its meaning. (III:589) It’s ingrained into the minds of this consumers’ society to take and grab and consume whatever one can, but sometimes it’s simply wiser to forego some of those blessings, which have a hidden price. They may make things easier and more pleasant for you immediately and in short term aspects, but in the long run they make you lazier and spoiled… and thus, weaker to fight the battle, which is, of course, the enemy’s incentive. (IV:18) Go through this struggle of life, even though it may be difficult! The difficult part is for a reason. (IV:86) Rejoice in your difficulties! They’re there to make the best out of you and your life. There are some things the easy way just won’t do for you. (IV:142) If I would have wanted to make things easy for you, I could have filled your life with people that are just like you. But what sort of challenge would that be? The more comfortable and at ease folks are with their lives, the less they tend to truly grow, since it’s the difficulties that make you grow. (IV:144) The hard times are a much more excellent preparation for what’s to come than the easy times. (IV:214) Is the Real Thing always the easier thing, or the more popular? No. But is it still the Real Thing that’s going to outlast the fake? Yes. (IV:238) Has it ever been easy to be a follower of Mine? Or is it perhaps that it’s just a mindset of these times, that life is supposed to be easy and always enjoyable with hardly any obstacles, adversities and hardships to overcome? Do you really want to make the choice to take the easier way? Or could it be that the harder way – always having the assurance that I’ll never make it too hard for you – is actually the better option for you in the long run? If you’re seeking something more, a greater and more lasting, eternal reward in the There and Then, then it behooves you to also put up with some adversities, some trials and struggles in this life, in order to learn and grow and progress and mature from them, because progress, growth and maturation are only achieved by means of the efforts you make in your struggle against adversities and difficulties. (IV:256) Why I’m not allowing your life to be all as easy as a breeze, nor as comfortable as you would prefer it, but why there is some resistance you’ve got to deal with frequently: I need to strengthen your character and your resolve, the fight in you. (IV:285)

If things don’t come too easily for you, don’t see it as a negative, but as the way it should be!(IV:383) The easiest way is not necessarily the most efficient teacher, and I have often asked My servants and brides and handmaidens to swallow some bitter pill or booklet – a sometimes less than pleasant chapter in their lives – that turned out to be key in their spiritual progress and development. (IV:491) Just settling for the easiest and most comfortable way, the way many people do, is definitely not it! That’s why I can only say, beware of the easy way and rejoice that the path I have put before you is sometimes a harsh and difficult one with many trials and some sorrows! (IV:495) Do it the easier way, not the hard way, by doing it with Me and with My Help and in My Spirit, with the aid of the strongest arms in the universe! (11:17) Trust Me: it is good for you that things aren’t going too easy for you right now. (11:38)

Sure, things could be easier, but ask yourself why it is that I'm not making them any easier for you! (11:41) Necessary changes are more likely to be brought about by hard times than the easy ones. (11:92) You know My stance on the easier way. Who ever made headlines going the easy way? (11:96) Learning to accept the circumstances is not really a challenge when you’ve chosen the easy path. (11:97) To have got what it takes is usually something you acquire by sticking it through a difficult situation. (11:98) If you want to make progress and headway, “easier” is not exactly a criterion or standard to go by, and not what you would look out for, much less cry over when it’s gone… (11:102) I know it’s not easy, but keep fighting for the victory, and learn to make that effort to stay in the victory and a victorious, positive attitude! (16:22) Some rough times make the better ones of people… more so than the purely easy and largely fun times. (16:23) Having to deal with difficulties is just the way it is, and you’ve got to learn to be an overcomer! (16:30) The more you manage to make yourself feel at home where I am, all the angels and fellow believers are, including Our almighty Father and Mother of Love, the more strength you’ll find, in order to overcome the difficulties life down there confronts you with! (16:36) Learn to put up with and handle those circumstances however far from perfect! Trust Me that they’ll serve to teach you more important lessons than going through all easy times! (16:42) You’re yearning for the blissful, easy and relaxing times… but… how long has it been since you were told that that’s not really what you can expect from this world in its current state, and much less the near future? “No trouble coming!” was the get-them-off-guard method of the devil, getting you to only expect better times than the worst actually predicted! Getting folks supposedly following Me off-guard, that was his way of doing it: spoiling them with easy times, the way kids are being spoiled right now, and making it a lot tougher to be able to deal with what’s inevitably to come! So, since you’re learning the consequences of spoiling kids, don’t allow yourself to be spoiled, either! – Especially once you realize who’s behind it! Who else do you think could be in charge of coming up with materialistic spoiling methods, both, for children of the flesh, as well as children supposedly of the Spirit? So, don’t fall for the materialistic spoils, learning where that stuff leads to! (16:44) The good and easy times just have a tendency to spoil folks, and so, you’ve got to trust in your Lord and Creator that He knows best what will make the best person out of you, and it’s not just the easy times. To get desperate and dependent enough on Our Help to make it to fulfill your purpose on Earth, the easy times just won’t do that. (16:47) It’s not easy to stay positive in such a negative world, but that’s what shows how much faith you’ve got in both, a positive Force of Creation and, accordingly, a positive Hereafter and final result! (16:49) The rough times are more important to learn things from than the easy ones. (16:51) The easy times are over, and you have to learn to deal and live with that! (16:56) Finding the right place in this world in the state it’s in and turning to is not that easy. But life isn’t that easy in general, as you found out, and it’s time to really get used to depending on My Help, just as the disciples of old had to, under their dark circumstances. (16:59) The rough parts of life are supposed to teach you… more than the good and easy times are able to. The rough times make you stronger through availing yourself of the Help and support from Up Here, which, during the good and easy times you don’t feel you need that much. But learning to need them is the best preparation for times to come! (16:61) Don’t blame Me too much for allowing times to be difficult for you, since that’s just about the only way to prepare you for the roughest time on Earth to come! (16:63) The comparatively easy times have the tendency to spoil you… and thus, spiritually weaken you. It’s natural to prefer the easy times, but see the wisdom in preparing for harder times inevitably to come, by having to go through comparatively rough stages!

So, don’t be too disappointed by the fact that the easy times are over and tend to get worse, but see the preparation process in them for what was predicted long ago! Preferring easy times is natural, but maybe it shows you should get your mind set and geared focusing toward the supernatural, miraculous! (16:65) The comfy and easy times are over, and it’s time to get ready for the predicted hard times. If life doesn’t strike you as easy as it used to be, try to see it more from a positive angle, that those harder times are simply more effective when it comes to teaching you the Lessons of Life! (16:73) With conditions confirming that life’s not a vacation, but that it’s good to learn to cope with unpleasant and tough situations, you’ll be better off in the future to come than you would, if life would keep spoiling you with easy ways. (16:76) The times before trouble hits ought to be appreciated. And when they’re not, well… trouble’s up ahead, and much harder to cope with than the easy times that were despised. (16:77) It’s not easy what you’re having to go through, and will have to; but I told you that those hard times will have the desired effect on you to make of you more of what I want you to be. The closer you get to Me, the easier things will be. (16:82) The more difficult things get, the more help you need. (16:86) Easy times taken for granted can lead to tough times. If it’s been a lot easier in times past, try to get the point why I’m stressing the fact that it’s time of get stronger… not really in the flesh, but especially in spirit in order to help you deal with what’s to come! (16:91) Continue to trust and rely on Me and all of Heaven Above, that We know what We’re allowing in your life, even if it’s not as pretty and easy as what you had been used to! (16:92) It’s not the easy times that strengthen your faith! (16:97) So… not that easy? – Not in your own capacities, but that’s why you have to learn to avail yourself of Mine, and the Help you can get from Above. (16:98) Just keep your faith and trust in Me, that I’ll manage to do the things for you that currently seem difficult or impossible! So, don’t fret about the difficulty of circumstances, but rejoice over the need and according opportunity for Us to manifest Our helpful Powers to you! (16:99) Don’t see the difficulties before you as a hindrance or negative, but as something to draw you closer to Me, something to make your faith in Me grow, and as circumstances that teach you to become more dependent on Me and the coming need of the Miracle-Power from Above, without which you won’t make it through the troubled times to come! (16:100) All the better you get prepared! – Not expecting easy times anymore, but getting ready for the tough times that I predicted to John nearly 2000 years ago. (16:101) Having lost the “fairly pleasant” previous part of your life strikes you as a bit tough… but then, how would I have managed to get you to feel less like part of the world, and prepared for the troubled times to come, if life would have kept on as easy and pleasant? No successful result from the easy lessons? Well, maybe the tough ones will do. (16:109) You would have preferred the easier times to continue and go on a bit longer… but if judgment’s coming, I guess you can see and understand why. Even if it includes disadvantages for you and the former comfortable and easy-going life-style has been coming to an end. So, the easy times are over, and you need to depend more on the Help from Above to make it through what’s coming… (16:133)

When someone’s lived a relatively easy life, the preparation process for hard times just takes a bit longer than for those used to hard times. It also shows what a lousy training the easy times are… no strength to gain from’em! So, take these relatively tough times to go through as utterly necessary preparation, making up for the longer stretch that spoiled you and left you hardly capable of dealing with difficulties! Trials and tests can turn to greater blessings and lessons learned than just the easy times. (16:153) Forget about and stop seeking the easy road! Look at the place down there it leads to! So, it’s a price to pay, to make it up that steep road in the other direction, and it may be a tougher one… but… Heaven, or hell? You know what choice to make! (16:156)

What did I say about difficulties? Aren’t they what you need at times to make you stronger and prepare you for the more difficult times to come? So, face them with some courage, founded by the faith in the fact that I’m with you and will be there to help you make it through the tough times and difficulties! That’s the big difference between easy times and hard times: Easy times: zero preparation for what’s to come, with nearly zero lessons to learn. Hard times: the preparations and lessons you need for what’s coming! Dependence on Me will not just be a factor to manage to make it through difficult or tough situations, but will also become an important factor for survival to make it through what’s to come. (2016:157) The good and easy times are definitely over, and it’s time to get prepared for the roughest time of history! (2016:160) The times of easy conditions and circumstances are rapidly going to come to an end, so, the sooner you learn not to take things for granted you’ve had all your life would certainly be an act of wisdom. When things have been going an easy way all your life, it’s tough to be prepared for unknown trouble, but that’s precisely why the devil allowed mankind to get into such a rut of taking the easy and safe times for granted. He likes to shock people. If I’m the boss of good surprised, he’s the one for bad ones. (2016:164) That things aren’t going easy or rosy in a world like that has to be expected, and you’ve got to be ready for that, and expect My miracles, and not conditions and circumstances around you to be perfect and pleasant! (2016:168) I never said changes were easy, but necessary. (16:169) If things are difficult, get used to it, since they’re going to become even more so! The easy times are unfortunately over. What if I just really want you to get into the groove of depending on My Help? Now, if something is My will for you… shouldn’t it matter to you? And not just the fact whether things are running comfortably and easily enough for you to take it easy and enjoy life? (16:170) If things just don’t work out as easily as they used to, see it as a step of preparation from Above… preparation for times coming – and soon – during which things are just not going to flow the same easy way as they have for the previous decades! It’s a bit humbling when younger folks around you manage things more easily than you do… but just let it humble you, remembering that humility is a more precious gift in the long run than physical capacities! (2016:173) Sometimes it’s just not that easy to find what you’re looking for. Sometimes things take time. And if things aren’t that easy, remember that getting into prayer might make a difference! If life is difficult, it just indicates that you might need some Help from Above, and that’s a reminder to pray and ask for It. It’s a bit shocking, when it was so comparatively easy in times past. But there comes a time when all God’s children have to find out that they just don’t belong down there. In a world bound to turn into hell on Earth more and more – no more easy times. (2016:174) There will always come situations and difficulties too hard to deal with in one’s own capacities of the flesh; and thus, trusting in the heavenly Help and support and protection from Above is – with what’s coming at the world – a much safer way to ride and walk, and one of the reasons We’re not letting times be as easy for you as they have been in the past, where you were able to rely on your own abilities and capacities. Don’t be too troubled about things not being as easy for you as they used to be, but count them as necessary and strengthening preparation for the toughest times of history predicted thousands of years ago! So, when times are tough, don’t take it as a sign that you’re off the track! The easy times may be more of a signal of that than the hard times, when the enemy fights you for a reason. Maybe you’re just not used to it anymore, having chosen the easy stretches of life for most of the time. (2016:175) If things aren’t working out as easily and smoothly as you’d have expected or hoped them to, see it as preparation for the times to come when “easily” and “smoothly” will just be words of the past! (2016:178) One thing about My way is that you have to get used to the fact that it’s not the easy way out! If things are difficult, let it be a sign and means of preparation for you for the times ahead when things will become even more difficult! (2016:181) If things around you are becoming more complicated, don’t let it drag you down, but see it as a process in which the world is developing! See, it’s not really in the enemy’s interest to make things easier for My folks, or folks in the world in general. The easy times of the past were to get you and others off their guards, and fall for his temptational spiel of, “See? – The world’s not that bad, after all! Maybe it’s just a hoax that the devil’s running the world!” So, things becoming more difficult and complicated? Learn how to deal with it, because this current stage is only the beginning! Complications of situations and conditions are one of the enemy’s favorites, because he knows he’s definitely smarter than humans, and he enjoys making things too complicated for them to handle. Just get used to the fact of things not working out as easily as they have been before! The easy way was for you to get off your guard! (2016:182)

The “War of the Spirit” counsel may not have been so “up to date” during the easier times. The easy times were the enemy’s trick to get you off guard. Recognize the “easy times” as something that most likely the enemy will use to get you off guard! The devil loves to offer and tempt My supposed followers with the easy way out. When the trouble arises, it’s time to get out of that easy gear, and get into a more serious one! (2016:184) “Tough and difficult” are fitting descriptions of what’s expecting you in times to come. So, if the present strikes you as tough and difficult, just see it as perfect preparation for what’s coming, even if it’s not what you’re used to! The ability to handle what’s coming largely depends on your preparation for it by learning to handle whatever each new day has to bring up, even if it’s more difficult than your past times. Yes, life could be and has been easier… but what’s ahead of you and the world will be a lot tougher, and you just have to accept the fact that the easy times are over. (2016:189) Tough situations? Get used to it! – Get used to the fact of life not being easy anymore! (2016:190) When previous things have been easy, it’s a tough change and adjustment to the tough times, but that’s just what you’re going to have to get used to and learn how to handle. (2016:191) Each day has challenges for you to cope with, in order to prepare you for the more difficult days to come. It’s time for folks on My path to learn and realize that the easy times are over. Those just constantly seeking fun and entertainment will have a shock coming at them in their nearby future… and any preparation for difficult and hard times will finally be appreciated and understood. As far as situations and circumstances becoming harder, tougher and more difficult goes, it just means: they’re in general going to become harder and tougher, and you’ve just got to get used to the fact that the easy times are over. (2016:194) The good and easy times can make it the hardest to make it and get through the tough times. To make it and get through the tough times shows your faith: Can you take the rough times as well as the easy and blissful ones? If I’m not supplying and providing the things you need and want right away, it must be that faith and patience are more important needs, and that My heavenly input is more important for you than the things that would make life easier for you. (2016:196)

When things aren’t working out as easily and swiftly as you might be hoping and expecting, it’s a signal from Up Here that you need a bit more trust and patience for Our Force of Help to come to pass in your life; and respecting that as of greater importance than your own management of circumstances is important. (2016:201) The easier ways make it tougher on people, eventually. (2016:205) If life hasn’t been easy so far, its level of “easiness” will shrink even more, and change to downright toughness in the times coming, and you’ve just got to get used to it. (2016:206) If times get difficult, “difficult” means a challenge of your faith and trust. While it may have been easier to have faith and trust through relatively easier times, the difficult times to come will show how strong, steady and sturdy your faith and trust in Us and Our Help, Power and Force of supply really are. (2016:207) It’s another matter of choice whether My will be done, or your own, if your own will may seem like the easier situation to you. Remember that I told the Father that His will be done just before My crucifixion, and the right choice isn’t always the one for the easier way or the way out! It takes a lot more trust in Us, to agree to a more difficult choice and option, but isn’t that what you need the most? Yes, there’s an easier way out… but which way you consider the right one always depends on your choice. Yes, the more difficult way’s the greater challenge… but by faith you know that the greater challenge also brings the greater reward. So, can you make that choice for the option that seems by far the tougher and more difficult? The difficult and challenging tasks are more likely what I’m leading My followers toward than the more comfortable and easier alternative options. The apparently easier one of two choices may just turn out to be the tougher one to have made in the long run. (2016:208) Difficult parts of life may be hard to go through, but when they’re there, one’s just got to, and trust in the Father Up Above that what he’s getting is what he needs and deserves. (17:1) Your kids are going to have to learn it, too, that the comparatively easy times are over. Be grateful that it’s still relatively easy compared with what’s to come! Appreciate those relatively easy times and means of survival, compared to what’s up ahead of you and the world per se, even if they’re already tougher than they used to be!

Even if there are plenty of folks having easier times… Remember that those easy days are coming to an end! – And those used to rough times will have an easier time coping with that change than those having been spoiled of being part of the “easy generation.” (17:5) The advantage of having to go through tough times: you get used to them, and learn how to handle them better than when all you were still used to were easy times. Learning to cope with rough times is like medicine for the soul. While the easy times spoiling your flesh aren’t really doing that much good to your spirit… not keeping you on the attack, and getting you lazy instead. So, anything that fights that sort of spiritual sickness can only be good. (17:10) The easy and delightful times didn’t make you stronger, unfortunately, and rather, weaker and less able to cope with what’s coming up. But that’s why you’ve got to get ready for that drastic change I’ve been predicting! (17:11) The good and easy times you’ve experienced in a world largely governed by our enemy’s forces of evil are over. With expected troubles not showing up for decades, it can make it harder for those having gotten used to the easy times when the belated fulfillment of prophecies finally comes rolling in. (17:13) Easy times are over. Time to apply for Heaven’s Help! You’ve just got to get used to things not running the smooth and easy way! You are disappointed that the fun and easy times are over. But you’ve got to learn to deal with and handle it! (17:20) To get your mind focused on Me in spite of anything’s what you’ve got to learn and get into the groove of, even if right now it still seems difficult and requires quite some effort. Not easy to put a spiritual Being first when all else around is focused on and geared by the paper bills, but that’s the challenge of daring to be different. (17:24) Expecting life to be easier means, you’re not ready to face the challenges. (17:25) If days aren’t going on as easy as they used to in the past, remember that it’s part of the preparation for the tough times to come, and don’t allow circumstances to drag you down! (17:26) One of the reasons most folks stick to their habitual areas: getting used to it all, and thus managing to handle it all more easily in their own strengths. (17:27) When life’s been too easy it tempts to get harder than if you’d have learned to deal with and handle tough times. (17:28) It’s good to get into the habit and function of a life of faith, where you don’t know how you’re going to make it by yourself, but just get used to having to rely and depend on the Help, Strength and Power from Above. So, welcome those difficult times you don’t know how to make it through by yourself! Don’t see it as a negative that your former times have been easier for you! (17:29) The easy times are over. Learn how to handle the tough! (17:30) If times have been rosier and easier before, it’s because you were much better able to manage and make it through things, conditions and situations. Not making it anymore is just a confirmation of the signs of the times: the sign of the tough times to come. The easy part of life is like vacation time for world-changers. Just remember, vacation’s eventually over! (17:31) Disasters may be tougher when you’re used to a relatively easy-going life, but then… What did I say about the easy times? Not really helpful in preparing you for what’s up ahead, were they? (17:32) If things aren’t working out as easily with folks around you, it happens in order to get into the groove of relying on Me. What’s coming up ahead and is expecting the world is not something to look forward to, but getting prepared for. And the first point is the realization that the easy times are over. The easy times up this far were mainly to get folks into an unprepared state for what’s coming. (17:33) The roughness of times and circumstances around you is on one hand caused by the enemy, but then you’ve got to trust that We know best what We’re allowing, since those tough times will prepare you better for what’s coming than the continuation of the easy times you were used to. (17:38) If it’s not easy learning to deal with the weight and carry it, just remember Me carrying My cross! (17:40) Finding yourself in a more difficult situation is not what you personally appreciate, but let Me assure you that it’s the better option of preparation for what’s up ahead! Get used to things not going the easy way! If things are not going so easily… well, just get used to things getting tougher! Don’t get offended by things not being that easy with the toughest era of history before you!

You can’t blame Me for not letting things be easier with the enemy in charge down there with the one attempt to make it as tough for folks like you as he can. If even the days of the old prophets seem easy and comparatively rosy for you compared to what you’re having to go through, well, I never made a secret about the toughest times still being up ahead. (17:42) If fellow humans aren’t making life easier or more live-able for you, put your whole faith and trust in Me! If life isn’t easy, remember that Mine wasn’t either! (17:47) As far as the difficulties with your fellow humans is concerned that I put at your task, see them as another God-given challenge! (17:48) Every day seems to be getting tougher, because the times are getting tougher, and heading for the toughest in history. So, you've just got to get used to the toughness of things and the easy days being over. (17:49) Things are still relatively easy, compared to what’s to come. (17:51) Sometimes you wish it could be easier, but that’s where you’ve got to trust Me that I know what I’m allowing as the best for you. (17:54) Things just won’t continue as easily as they have in the past, and you’ve got to get used to it. (17:56) I know it would be more pleasant for you if things were easier, but... see: you've just got to learn to take things the way they come! - A lesson of acceptance! And trust Me and the Father that We know what we're allowing to come before you! Making things easier isn't always necessarily the road that leads up ahead or forward. Learning to overcome difficult circumstances and hindrances makes you stronger in the spirit. And isn't that what counts? So, take'em, those adversities and difficult and tough stretches! Accept it as from Us, and yield to it accordingly! (17:59) Take difficulties as preparation for the most difficult to come! The easier times aren’t what makes you stronger in spirit, but rather tend to spoil you and make you rely more on your own flesh and capacities. (17:61) That drawnness toward the easy ways is one of the main weaknesses of character, and something to work on overcoming. (17:66)

If life is rough and not easy, remember that’s what I’ve been telling you for some time to get ready for and used to… learn to handle it! (17:70) You need My input more on days that are reminders that the good and easy times are about to be over. (17:72) To make things easier for others who are suffering and don’t really have that easy road… Well, that’s a good manifestation of love for your fellowmen, don’t you think? (17:74) The easy times are getting over. The hard days are to come. It’s a bit like the 7 fruitful years around Egypt, before the 7 years of famine. Even though the easy days aren’t over yet for quite a lot of people around you, you’re in the process of becoming prepared for what’s coming, which will strike many - if not most - others as a shock. (17:79) It’s good you’re becoming familiar with the fact that the easy times are over. It’s good you’re getting on guard. (17:90) You wish I could make things easier for you. But the easy times are over. (17:97) It’s good not to take the good and easy times for granted, as in “guaranteed” to always stay that way. Knowing My Word, you should get used to and prepared for what It’s predicting. (17:100) Things are not meant to be easy for believers in Me in a world run by our enemy, soon to take over the absolute reign over the planet. - Tough times to get prepared for through not so easy circumstances right now. (17:103) It simply won’t stay the easy and fairly pleasant way it has been. It’ll be farewell to the easy and comfy conditions you’ve gotten used to. (17:108) Sorry, no more easy times!- The needed preparation process for what’s coming. (17:113) If folks around you don’t make things easier on you, but rather, more difficult, remember that’s one reason I keep telling you not to cling to them, but to Me! (17:114)

My followers’ lives have never been the easy kind, so, just put up with that “un-easiness,” and take things as they come by My grace I will pour out to you whenever you need it! (17:116) Life ain’t easy, but it’s a series of challenges to confront and learn to handle through the Power from Above, which will be absolutely expedient for anyone aiming to survive through what’s coming. So, don’t get too uptight about difficult or unpleasant circumstances, but get into the rhythm of learning to cope with and handle them! (17:118) The spiritual direction most downhill folks are heading may seem easier, and it may be easier in some ways, leaning on the physical abilities of the flesh, instead of the unseen Force and Power of an unseen God… but that’s just the way of faith. (17:123)

The fact that things get harder and tougher, and not as easy anymore as they used to be and do, is also a factor of preparation for the fact that the times coming will be the most difficult ones. (17:124) The changes of circumstances and conditions won’t make life as easy and pleasant as right now. (17:125) The reason, sense and purpose for finding yourself in a more difficult and challenging situation is part of the preparation process for the toughest time to come. (17:129) The fact that I can’t make it any easier for you right now is due to the fact that the toughest times of all of history are on the horizon, and to get you prepared for those, I can’t let you have easy times. Can you trust Me that I know what I’m allowing to happen in your life, even if it may not be as rosy, as easy and as pleasant as things have been for you in former times? (17:134) How could I get you into the groove to cling and hang on to Me, if things would be running as easily and smoothly as they used to in years past? (17:135) See any potential problems and difficulties as a challenge for both: your faith, and Me, to see - and let Me show you - what I can do in difficult and challenging situations for you! (17:137) It’s relatively easy to have faith when things flow smoothly and life is easy. But when things get tough, that faith gets tested. You wonder, “God, why do You allow this?” But then, the devil and his pack getting ready for their absolute reign of the world, and as you can tell, they’re in big preparation gear for it… so, how could you expect life to be easy? You’ve got to get ready for the toughest time of history, and how could you do that it things would just be going easily and smooth? Just get ready to deal with the not-so-easy part of life, taking what comes and making the best of it you can! (17:138) Life simply isn’t that easy anymore, and is going to be yet much tougher than it is right now to get you and other folks ready for “the end of the world” as you know it. (17:141)

…Effort I expect you to come to Me, to make an effort! As you move toward Me, I move toward you. (III:88) There are more things for you to receive from Me, more that I can give you, if you really want them, and you make the effort to ask Me for them and seek Me and My advice and counsel for them. There always are, and always will be. (III:461) While it wouldn’t make sense to put much effort into reaching the state of sinless perfection and saintliness in your own energy, you can trust in My grace and Salvation Power that eventually you will reach that goal. (III:473) The enemy is trying to discourage you and lie to you about the futility of your work and efforts, so you won’t get too excited or enthusiastic but will just make half-hearted efforts, and thus not really causing the stir you could, if you would just ignore him and get ignited about the whole thing, confident that I’m behind it and in it, and not only that, but also the Instigator of it. (III:475)

Don’t go looking around for a way to escape in your own efforts, or try to rig one up with your own arm of the flesh! The Promise says that I will make that way. So, don’t do anything in your own efforts that you might regret later on! (III:488) Your tolerance for what I’m doing in each other’s lives allows Me to do most of the work and work in My mysterious ways that will bring out the greater works that you, in your own efforts never could have accomplished. (III:489) None of your efforts shall be in vain. (III:502) It takes time and a real effort to tune in and zoom in to the things and people that really count. It takes a concentrated effort, because there are these other distracting factors of the obvious, seemingly more important attention getters, the factors that bring in more money or “publicity…” (III:508) Unfortunately, sometimes, in the effort of setting out on the enterprise to give love to others, the immediate and apparently more pressing needs of obtaining what one needs to survive take over the good intentions, and occupy much more time and space than the actual giving of love… The surrounding machinery becomes much bigger than its core and original purpose, often to such an extent that it can hardly be found anymore. (III:532) To refuse to give up prematurely on others may seem like a waste of effort and time and energy. To them it’s simply love. “Love That Will Not Let Me Go.” (III:563) I know your frame and that you are but dust, and you don’t have to try to be or pretend to be anything other than dust, dust that I, not you yourself, will elevate and lift into the light to float there and shine like diamonds. You cannot become a diamond of dust through your own efforts. You can do what you can by keeping your face toward the Light and focusing on the Light, but it is I Who is going to have to lift you up to shine and sparkle in It. (III:564) You have to make a conscious effort to keep people above your projects you’re working on. (III:577) Even if you’re not really interested in displaying yourself, it can still come across that way to some, unless you make a conscious effort to stay out of the limelight. So, let there be less of you, in order for Me to be able to better shine through! Even if it’s not your intention to “preach yourself,” it can still come across like that, or the danger is that you do, unknowingly, unless you make a conscious effort of making sure you’re not. (III:584) It takes a special effort and skill to be able to make out My voices and input from among all the System’s roars. (III:590) You should show by your outward appearance and the efforts you’re making that you believe in Something that you consider worth getting in shape for, even if it’s nothing else but convincing them of your cause, and doing what you can to help make it easier for them to believe in it. Just because I have promised to never leave you or forsake you doesn’t mean I just want you to lie in your hole and not make any single effort to look for ways out on your own. (III:591) If as soon as money starts pouring in you stop making an effort to make more progress, and thus you stop all growth and bring the maturation and advancing process to a halt, then I have to conclude that pouring money in your lap isn’t a good idea. (III:594) Some people haven’t made much of an effort yet to either read or put into practice those things I have said already. Do you think it’s something worth making a few efforts for? (III:598) The wrong attitude to have is, “If things aren’t the way I think they should be, why should I make any effort to change them?” Well, that’s perhaps precisely why they are the way they are, so that you make an effort to evoke some kind of difference. (IV:7) You’ve got to make a little effort and stretch out your hands of faith to receive.(IV:8) Sometimes certain efforts have to be made in order to get what you want, and if everything would always fall into your lap by itself, then I would be spoiling you. That’s not what I meant by trusting Me to supply all your needs. I never said, “Don’t do anything, I’ll do it all!” (IV:10) While your contemporaries might perhaps ask you what on Earth you’re doing with your time, yet posterity might think differently about it, and maybe you will have done humanity a greater service by dedicating your time to such a seemingly un-promising and un-rewarding task (as far as immediate rewards are concerned), than by any feverish efforts of your own to have an impact on the temporal world around you. It may be hard for you to watch how those who invest in the here and now are blessed with success in return, while your efforts remain largely unseen, but that is the price one pays for being not of this world and one of My disciples. (IV:11) It takes faithful practice to get your mind under My control, and if you neglect it for a day, it’s going to take you greater effort the next. (IV:15)

If you put forth a little bit of a believing effort that what I did for you I am also able to do for others, and if you let that positive attitude shine through a little bit, maybe they’ll also catch the drift and start believing that I can do it for them, too! Can you make an effort to have a little bit of a believing and trusting attitude that I’m capable of bringing the best out of a situation, and that I’m in full control? (IV:26) Others don’t always seem to be exactly appreciative of your efforts to bring them the message that could save them, but I’m trying to get you to shift your vision from what you can immediately see, the way people apparently are on the surface, to that which is below the surface, and their true need. (IV:27) You’ve got to allow the mystery to happen along with the suffering, along with all the stuff that perhaps you wouldn’t have allowed or built in there, had you been the architect, but that’s precisely where faith and trust come in and run circles around pride, and all the carnal mind will ever rig up in its own efforts. (IV:33) With doors, it does take a little effort of your own to push them open, to turn the doorknob, to knock or ring the bell; it isn’t entirely up to Me. (IV:40) I truly need you to invest your efforts in the spreading of the truth, and not in merely entertaining people. (IV:46) Efforts are futile if made in the energy of the flesh, instead of the Spirit. (IV:55) You’ve got to stay on My channel, and that doesn’t just happen by itself; it takes an effort, because the enemy will try lots of tricks in order to distract you from it. Make an effort to stay in the Light and on My wavelength! (IV:88) If you make it one of your goals to preserve the peace with those you live with, and keep your focus on that goal and make a conscious effort to strive towards it, you can attain that goal. Once you deem peace with your fellowmen and co-workers a goal worthy of pursuing and making some efforts to attain, then according to your faith be it unto you (Mt.9:29). Unity is something you’re going to have to develop by making conscious efforts in that direction… (IV:99) Eventually the awakening will come to the hard reality that what some settled for – no matter how grand or glorious – will only have been a fleeting shadow, compared to the eternal and true beauty and glories they could have invested their lives and efforts in. (IV:107) I want you to find out why it pays to trust Me and put your efforts on My side and invest your time and energy into My Cause. (IV:112) Sometimes it takes an effort to get back into the flow, groove and line of communication with Me, back onto the wavelength of the Spirit World, when you’ve been indulging in all that the temporal has to offer. You either fight on the side of the spirit, or you allow the flesh to gain the upper hand, and if you do, it will take some effort to enable the spirit to regain its ground. (IV:124) It takes some effort to shift your focus away from that “fun-mentality,” where pleasure and enjoyment are your primary incentive, and toward your duty for Me instead, and toward your share of what it takes to get in the harvest of souls. (IV:126) It takes an effort to punch through all the fake and false mindsets based on the devil’s illusions to the clear picture of reality. (IV:132) It takes effort to bring “every thought into the captivity of the obedience of Christ (2.Cor.10:5).” (IV:133) I need and want you, and I need you to pay attention more wholeheartedly and dedicate even more of your time and efforts to My Cause, and less to the System, because you can’t win the battle half-heartedly. (IV:138) You’re in good hands, and no matter what hard times on Earth you may go through, there is help for you available and close by, accessible to anyone via the hand of faith and the mere effort of asking for it. (IV:147) Your own efforts will not suffice. They’re not what the world is waiting for. They need something more and better than that. You can never deliver what they need. Only I can. That’s why what you give to them must never be your own work or effort, but only what I give you to pass on to them. (IV:150) Make a believing effort and project your hopes and expectations on Me, not some carnal solution of something you might do in the arm of the flesh! (IV:155) I want you to make some kind of effort and shoot for the goal of being able to love unconditionally. (IV:162) It takes effort to implement My input and advice to you. (IV:169)

I would never turn My back on you or anyone who truly and uprightly seeks Me. I will only turn My back on those who claim to know Me and commit atrocious crimes in My Name without ever having made an effort to truly know Me and My will. (IV:189) You can do whatever you can in the flesh and in the physical, but if you don’t see to it that it will get the necessary boost and umph from the Spirit World, your efforts might be rendered nearly futile, or at least not nearly as effective as otherwise they might have been. (IV:191) You’ve got to do a little bit of seeking sometimes and make that effort to find Me and spot Me even in the not so obvious places in life. (IV:202) It takes an extra specific effort to make sure you’re giving Me all the glory for something accomplished. (IV:232) It takes fight and effort to stay positive. (IV:238) When everything is just honky-dory and everything flows without much effort, you’re more complacent and satisfied with things as they are, and thus, less determined to change anything. (IV:249) Trying to please people is such a futile effort, and yet it’s all that many people live for. (IV:254) To overcome, you have to strive, and struggle and fight and make an effort to do so. It’s not supposed to be some feat you accomplish perfectly at ease without making any efforts and without any strain. How are you supposed to gain any strength without ever making any effort? Progress, growth and maturation are only achieved by means of the efforts you make in your struggle against adversities and difficulties. (IV:256) If you want to please Me as your Teacher by the way you show what you’ve learned from Me, then it’s pretty hard to make Me happy with the sort of development where not much progress has been made over quite some amount of time in the area of faith, and it should give you reason for concern and make you seek to make an effort to change in that area. The gist of the fun in the game of life is to keep playing regardless of whether you’re winning or losing. Winners are only made out of those who keep making an effort and keep trying to win, even if they’ve been losing sometimes, or they haven’t been handed all the good cards… You can show that you’re an overcomer, by being a good loser in the game and battle of life, and determining that you’re just going to keep on fighting, keep making an effort and keep giving it your best and your all, regardless of whether you happen to be caught in a losing streak of not. (IV:279) The type of people who say, “Love doesn’t put food on the table,” or “faith doesn’t pay your bills,” etc., are saying in essence, “The only thing I can trust in to help me survive is my own flesh, my own efforts…” (IV:298) A lot depends on the effort with which you seek Me and the effort you pour into My Cause and into your relationship with Me. If a number of things remain more important to you and you invest more effort in them and their acquisition, then you will also have to reap the natural consequences. (IV:315) I’m making you come to grips with some of your limitations, confronting you with what’s expecting you in order to make you decide whether you want to make the necessary effort to stretch those limits and grow beyond them. (IV:344) Disappointment that results in foiled efforts usually does have a weakening effect on faith and creates that fear of further disappointment and failure. It’s another great lesson on the futility of the flesh and any of its efforts to create something as miraculous as a wellfunctioning love relationship, since genuine love is not something that can be created from mere flesh, just as life and spirit can not spring forth from lifeless matter. The efforts to do so result in weakening disappointments, and instead of strengthening you and giving you a brighter outlook, strength and hope for the future, the opposite takes place. (IV:358) Is it surprising that I’m expecting you to make some kind of effort in order to make that dream you have found a reality? It may not necessarily be all carnal efforts, but you’ve got to make an effort of faith to believe that it’s happening, praise Me for it, as I have taught you, and not let the enemy cheat you out of your dream! (IV:380) All blessings ever received from Me in life are because of certain choices or efforts made, and having somehow deserved them. (IV:383) I promised that My burden is light, but there is some minimum effort you’re simply going to have to make, some show of good will and incentive you’re going to have to put forth. (IV:386) Your flame doesn't keep burning by itself in the wind and the rain unprotected... You've got to make an effort to keep it alive! (IV:391)

You must make an effort to see things in a positive light! (IV:414) Make a greater effort of faith! Make an effort to build up your confidence by filling your mind with faith-building thoughts and cling to them! (IV:418) You’re simply best off if you keep making efforts to put the bulk of your trust in Me. (IV:421) None of them, for all their efforts, can ever do anything whatsoever to stop their body from the eventual decay that awaits them. So, the end result with everyone, whether they’re super organized and well-off, or a mess, or dead poor and starving somewhere, is all the same. In order to walk in My direction, you simply have to make an effort sometimes to lay still in order to find My guidance and Light on your path. (IV:422) Make an effort to acquire an attitude of trust! (IV:434) Trust that things are going to take their course according to My will, as long as that’s where you’re making an effort to abide! (IV:532) Make an effort to stay as positive as you can, even with circumstances being less than ideal! (IV:534) I am available, but it cost you an effort to get ahold of Me. I appreciate that effort. I want and need you to rise above the circumstances and look beyond, at Me, Who can and will master them all for you, as long as you keep making that effort to stay close to Me. (11:1) To make that effort to reach and touch Me every day will pretty much guarantee that your day will at least start rolling in the right direction. (11:4) I’m right behind you, even if it may take that effort of yours to turn toward Me before you realize it. To turn to Me is never a squandered effort. There’s never a better thing you could do. It is through faith that you are saved, and not any puny efforts. (11:6) It’s always My grace that saves you, never your works or carnal efforts. (11:11) Pioneer efforts have never really been accomplished by always sticking to the same old counsel and habits that everyone else has already been following all along, but by breaking with the traditional views and ways of doing things. (11:15) If you make an effort to please Me instead of them, you won’t come away as empty-handed, but I will always make My efforts in return to reward and please you. (11:38) Life’s a bit of a work of art, and just tossing a bucket of paint on a canvas won’t quite do it, if you really want it to turn out nice! It takes a lot more skill and effort than that! (11:47) Believe Me, I won’t let your efforts go unrewarded! (11:49) It takes a conscious effort to decide to put on a positive, grateful mindset and attitude. (11:66) It’s so easy to see the negative; that’s why you’ve got to make that effort to look at the positive. Make that conscious effort to stay on a positive wavelength! (11:67) Just as flowers will wither without water and light, so will you without Me. The only difference between you and the flowers is that you've got to make that little effort yourself to switch on the light in your life and make the water flow. (11:74) I need you to make an effort to tune into Me, because I need people like you to be My reflectors. (11:87) Someday you’ll wish you would have made a little bit of a greater effort to believe. I want you to realize how futile those efforts are to find happiness anywhere else. (11:99) Look at the mercy I’ve had and continue having for you, and be willing to extend some of that to others around you, even if it’s going to take a considerable effort! (11:107) If you want to follow in My footsteps, it depends on your effort to remember what I told you. What I’m giving you is Words that are supposed to change your attitude or give you clear guidance. (11:119) Instead of focusing on the dreadfulness of a situation, try to make an effort to focus on Me, no matter how hard it may seem! (11:135)

Make that effort to stay in the victory and a victorious, more positive attitude! (16:22) Learn to receive My input even when it takes more of an effort! Staying in the Spirit may not be that easy with the god of the flesh becoming in charge down there… It’s an effort, a fight and a battle you just have to learn the importance of, and don’t let the enemy’s distractions discourage you from making that effort, but rather, spur you on to stay more in the Spirit, and try as hard as you can to get out of the groove of, and reliance on the flesh! (16:27) Becoming more heavenly-minded is certainly worth the effort! (16:30) Wherever you are, try to make the best out of your presence there! That’s what I’d call the effort of being a good testimony for My honor. (16:32) It pays to make an effort to get into and stay in the Spirit! (16:33) To be more heavenly-minded to give folks a glimpse of Something better and more glorious to come is definitely a mode you should make an effort to get into! Show others a glimpse of Heaven by making the effort to stay connected to It yourself! Don’t focus too much on your physical surroundings, nor allow them to drag you down, but make the effort to keep your mind focused on and staying geared toward the better state of things following the current one, if you believe in Me! (16:35) Make that effort to keep asking for - in order to stay filled with - My Spirit, in order to be able to do your job for Me! Pouring out what you receive from Me is your principal task, so keep making the effort of asking for and receiving the necessary Strength and Power from Above in order to do it! If love is the most important factor in life, make sure you’re spending all the time and effort possible in sharing it and passing it out! (16:38) Make an effort to see it through and make it without much murmuring and complaining about the imperfect circumstances! (16:48)

Make the effort to stay positive! Consider that temptation to get into negative tempers something you need to make an effort to resist and fight against! If it’s love you believe in, you should make an effort to show that you also believe in It as being the more powerful Force than the enemy’s hate! (16:49) When it’s not a very noble sign of your personality, the way you barely manage to deal with the rough times, make an effort to try to do better! (16:51) Make an effort to get into that gear of being heavenly-minded! - Heaven-focused, and Heaven-geared! (16:63) It’s enough for Me, if they receive you. Of course, that should give you a bit of conviction about the way you behave and act, but as long as you just make the effort to do the best you can, that’s already enough for Me. (2016:83) If you want to get anywhere along the whole purpose of life, make an effort to handle and accept people’s flaws around you, because otherwise it just couldn’t be called love, whatever you’re trying to do. (16:88) Sow your efforts and considerations of value to the Spirit, even though your physical abilities are getting weaker – or rather, because they are! (16:95) Sometimes it takes extra efforts to resist the enemy. (16:123) You have to make an effort to direct your focus Up Here, to Me and your heavenly helpers who can aid you and support you in overcoming the physical circumstances dragging you down. Don’t let it drag you down what’s going on around you, but make an effort to stay on a positive mindset, no matter what the circumstances and conditions are! Make the effort to focus on Us by faith, instead of the physical conditions around you that tend to drag you down… a confirmation of the fact that this world is not your home! (16:141) It’s that urge to just follow one’s own ideas that’s one of the most common manifestations of the same evil that got the devil himself off the track. – And a good one to recognize and start making efforts to overcome! (16:143) Don’t let circumstances drag you down, but make that effort and fight to keep your antenna of spiritual reception up! The invention of some items have taken quite some attempts and efforts to get them to succeed! See, success isn’t exactly something achieved by one-time efforts, but more by sticking to it and not giving up prematurely.

Fight against negativity when you feel it coming, and make all the effort you can to stay in the victory! (16:144) Remember that the enemy’s your enemy, and he won’t stop trying to slow you down, weaken you with his doubts and do all he can to stop you from your efforts and sowing your fruits to the spiritual Realm, instead of investing all your efforts in the carnal realm like the vast majority. (16:146) You’ve just got to make the effort to stay on My channel and wavelength! (16:152) It takes an effort to stay tuned in to the – right kind of – Spirit. (16:162) Going through trials about having lost heavenly moments is something that influences kids, unless you manage to overcome those trials and make an effort to make the best of whatever circumstances you’re caught up in. Trust in My abilities to supply you with whatever you need to survive is basically one of the main steps of faith, and the demonstration and proof that someone truly lives and walks by faith: not investing physical efforts in earning money, but spreading My message and through it winning souls to My Kingdom… (16:172) Do your best to make an effort to be a blessing to others, giving them a chance to make it Up Here! That’s the main purpose of life for My disciples. (16:176) Accept the heavenly counsel you receive, and don’t let your mind steer you into its own conclusions and making sense of things in its own efforts! (16:180) Failing to do My job for My disciples is a huge failure with vast consequences, and getting down to conditions that make you aware of that, is something you’ll consider having been worth it hereafter! - A little taste of hell for you to realize what you’re failing to make efforts to save others from. (16:185) Just letting the circumstance and what’s going on around you determine your spiritual state is definitely not the way of faith that should make the effort to see the good in the apparent bad, and to behave accordingly: positively, anyway… not negatively. Just make your effort to cope with God’s “chaos,” or what He allows to appear as such! (16:186) You can’t gear and direct your course too much according to the circumstances and things going on around you, but you’ve got to make that effort daily to get in tune with what’s going on Above you and work on it until that’s what starts happening inside you! (2016:188) Handling circumstances is an art everyone ought to be making an effort in. (2016:192) Make that effort to overcome, rise above, and aim for the victory! The preparation for the hardest times of history is mainly for the purpose of getting you into the groove of depending on Our Help, supply and protection, instead of the old, usual way of attaining it all in your own efforts. (2016:196) For most folks it is the here and now they put their faith and trust in and invest all their efforts, strengths and energies into, and the folks who base their actions of their faith and trust in Us and the Hereafter are a tiny minority in comparison, which is why I said, “the chosen are few.” (2016:208) Having to learn to put up with demonic influences should teach you to be mindful of, and more on the attack against them, and make a greater effort to resist them. (17:4) Make an effort to focus on the positive, even if it isn’t part of the visible things around you! – That’s what faith is! (17:15) Make an effort to take life’s circumstances the best you can; and the best you can means: with the application of My Help! (17:20)

To get your mind focused on Me in spite of anything’s what you’ve got to learn and get into the groove of, even if right now it still seems difficult and requires quite some effort. (17:24) To get your mind focused on Me in spite of anything’s what you’ve got to learn and get into the groove of, even if right now it still seems difficult and requires quite some effort. But if you’ll make that your main concern and effort – to get and stay in tune with Me despite whatever circumstances and conditions, you’ll realize and recognize the benefits of it at some point not too far from now, even if the enemy tries to tell you the opposite, like, “you’re wasting your time.” (17:24) Just don’t feel too bad about feeling too weak to get things rigged up in your own efforts! With times coming where own capacities won’t make as much of a difference, it’s good – actually the best – to learn to depend on Me and the Help from Above. (17:37)

Having to go through the results of the wrong choices made is pretty much the major lesson of this part of human history. And since most folks aren’t aware of that factor, those who are, should at least make an effort to behave accordingly. (17:39) Seeing the - maybe a bit more rare - positive acts of behavior, and just making the effort to focus on them more than the negative traits, should help developing a more positive attitude and receptiveness. (17:65) If life and it’s circumstances don’t make much sense to you yet, just make that effort to keep trusting in Me in spite of it! Eventually that trust will make sense. (17:68) To take whatever life brings is a challenge, I know… So, how about that effort and making it a goal to accept and take it, no matter how hard it comes? (17:70) Remember that “God’s way up is down,” if you ever feel tempted again to feel “down” about your only reaching lower levels in your own efforts! (17:72) As you can’t expect perfection from anyone down there, they also can’t expect it of you. But you should point them in the direction where they can. - Even if that’s a matter of faith, which again, you should do your best to inspire them to ignite and get kindled in their lives. Not an easy job? But yet, the only true alternative to offer. And shouldn’t that be a factor that makes all efforts worth it? (17:77)

To make that effort to get ahold of Me may not seem all that necessary yet right now, but it will be in the days to come, you’ll see.(17:79) Just remember that whatever’s about to happen can’t just be blamed on one party, but a lot of the responsibility remains on you to at least make the effort to do the best and make the best of it that you can and manage! The closer you stick to Me, the more I can help you to stick to your responsibility. (17:83) Appreciate the gifts you get and make the effort to make the best you can out of them! (17:86) So there are some troubled times to come, but what else can be expected of you, apart from learning just to take’em and accept whatever life has to offer you with the challenge for you to make the effort to make the best you can out of it? (17:91) Your body may make you feel weak in the flesh, but My Spirit will make you feel strong inside! And remember that that inside part is the lasting one We’ll meet and embrace Up Here! So, it’s another aspect of not sowing your energies and efforts into temporal matters, but the eternal and lasting World instead. (17:93) You should make that effort not to stay spoiled, incapable of fighting against the evil influences of the one who spoiled you through comfy circumstances. (17:95) You’ve just got to learn to live with and handle the sort of circumstances you find around you and make the effort to make the best of them you can. You’ve got to keep making that effort to raise your spiritual vision up; Up Here to Me, and your Future Home! (17:98) Make that effort of faith to keep your focus directed Up Here! If there’s a bit of worry lingering in you, it may just be a reminder from the spirit world to keep you on guard and in prayer mode without which you won’t make it through the times to come! See that worry as a step of preparation by getting you into prayer groove, putting your efforts and strengths where they belong! Make that effort to aim your settings toward the spiritual side… My side, and keep the faith that no matter how much circumstances and conditions down there are taken over by the enemy, when it comes to the final and ultimate Force that’s in charge of all things in the end, keep remembering Me, regardless of physical and earthly circumstances, no matter how dark and dreadful! (17:99) Making the effort to stay on My wavelength instead of getting too influenced by physical circumstances will be a sample of faith that many need and appreciate. (17:100) Popularity: not really worth any efforts to achieve in the kind of world you’re living in! (17:109) Action and samples are so much more important than sermons. Especially when none of the listeners make any effort to act on what they’ve just heard. (17:117) Make the effort to get onto the “heavenly Spirit gear,” instead of leaning on your own brain! Get out of the groove of “leaning on thine own understanding,” but lean on a better Source of understanding, wisdom and true knowledge instead! (17:119) Make the effort to focus on the spiritual Light of Heaven!

Efforts of faith will be what survival through the coming darkness will depend on. Keep your mindset geared toward efforts of faith! Make the effort to stay on a positive wavelength, and resist the spiritual and mental attacks and influences from the enemy’s side! (17:120) Make an effort and make it your goal to go through life in faith instead of fear and worry! (17:122) I know, it’s a big matter of faith to set your emphasis on Something you don’t see… but maybe it just means you should make an effort to see those Things through faith. Make that effort to aim your main focus toward your Lord and Savior, the only One Who’ll be able to see you through the darkest of circumstances ever! (17:127) Remember you’re a follower of “Mc Positive,” not Negative, and accordingly make the effort to stay on that positive mindset, instead of allowing your and Our enemy to drag you down and weaken you accordingly! (17:129) Try to make an effort to appreciate your blessings! Even if there are some trials and tests around… tests to show how much appreciation and thankfulness you’ve got. (17:132) Put some effort into aiming at seeing things around you with a positive view, and thus making the best out of them! A lot depends on your attitude, the right one of which would be sprinkled with that effort to make the best out of whatever confronts and challenges you. So, make that effort to aim for the best to make out of things and conditions that face you each day! (17:136) It’s a tough road through this time of the End, and many just won’t make it. So, wouldn’t it be worth the effort to do the best you can - all you can - to contribute to the probability that you might - in spite of any conditions making it tougher? Tough times need specially tough efforts to make it through! (17:141) Trusting and putting hope in your own talent would bring all My efforts to naught to get you to put your faith purely in Me and My capacities instead of your own! (17:143) It takes a special effort to keep your vision and focus set in the right direction. (17:148)

…Emphasis & Priorities When someone drags that attitude of, "Oh well, God's not all that important" around with them into the lives of others and try to make Me equally less important in others’ lives as I've become in their own, that's where you've got to put your foot down and show that you won't nudge, that you won't adapt your sense of priorities to theirs. (III:112) My commandment to love stands stronger, has greater emphasis and priority than your discernment, or wanting to find out whether you were right about your feelings and suspicions or not. (IV:26) Keep the focus and the emphasis on the essential, namely the Spirit, My message, and the purpose of it all, and don’t fall into the trap of investing your energies in something that will glorify the flesh or yourself instead! (IV:29) What matters is the emphasis on the eternal, to do everything that you do for the glory of God, for an eternal purpose, not just for the short-term, present and temporal purpose. (IV:462) Give Me a chance to work in your life to a greater extent than ever before by giving Me the priority, importance and emphasis in your life! (11:15) You’ve got something better to avail yourself of than any means you could find in the physical. I want you to realize that this is your supreme blessing you should put the utmost emphasis on. (11:16) I’d like you to place your emphasis on what I want you to do primarily, your ultimate calling, as far as I’m concerned – that will come in handy when I will present you with students whom I want you to teach about Me. (11:56) A life lived properly is one that doesn’t leave out of the account the factor that it will all come to an end, and that acquiring things, or even achieving things in it isn’t the all-in-all.

And even though you’ve known all that in theory, your concerns and affections, preoccupations and attention keep wandering back towards those immediate matters of the there and now, and you keep putting more emphasis on them than the eternal matters that really count. (11:115) Put more emphasis on your fitness! Not that I recommend putting your major emphasis on it, but it’s still better than the machines and motors that make life more comfortable, and thus lower your energy level. (16:93) Why I’m emphasizing the advantage of believing over seeing with your physical eyes: You’ve got to learn to see things in spirit, not be geared toward the view of physical circumstances! (16:147) Faith basically means greater emphasis on the Spirit. (17:37) It’s time to put the emphasis on faith and spiritual vision, not what you can see before you with your eyes. (17:97) The emphasis on the Spirit World gets you to the point where you recognize and accept Its superiority. (17:113) It’s a big matter of faith to set your emphasis on Something you don’t see… but maybe it just means you should make an effort to see those Things through faith. Understand why I can’t keep allowing you be distracted by the world around you, when it’s all nice and cozy? Of course the flesh prefers that. But you just have to learn to put the emphasis on the spirit instead! (17:127)

…Encouragement vs. Discouragement If you just passively let the enemy fill you with all his input, then it's no wonder you're being dragged down. (II:124) Don't let the devil have his way with you and your loved ones! Don't fall for his tricks of going without uttering a word of praise and encouragement for days! Don't be so critical! For every critical word you should utter ten words of encouragement! (II:164) You’ve got to refuse to let the devil lie to you and discourage you to that extent where you get to the point of wanting to quit. That's precisely what he wants! So, when you get that kind of flak from him, it's a sign that you're on the right track, and that you must be doing something right! (III:356) Refuse to let the enemy discourage you, and keep focusing on the fact that I need you! (III:428) The enemy is trying to discourage you and lie to you about the futility of your work and efforts, etc, and he likes to portray your whole life as a mess, just so you won’t get too excited, too enthusiastic about anything. I am the One Who’s giving you the ideas and inspirations in the first place. So, allowing the enemy to discourage you about them is like taking the credit for them yourself and saying they are yours, instead of Mine. Whereas, if you make it clear that it all comes from Me in the first place, you have the power to rebuke the devil and tell him, “Hey, this isn’t just my own idea, but the Lord’s, so, get out of my way!” (III:475) Heavenly Love simply cannot be found in your physical realm, and continuing to look for love to satisfy you will only leave you high and dry and lead to further disappointment and discouragement. (III:556) More and more people are experiencing breakdowns on the road of life, and they’re going to appreciate any kind of genuine help and encouragement along their way, even if your own car isn’t the fanciest of all. You have to look at the need, more than what people might possibly say or think about you, or whatever the devil may do to discourage you and keep you from being an encouragement to others. (III:596) “We know you can do it” is definitely better than a doubtful and skeptical attitude. Even if they turn out not to make it, your energies will have been invested in a better and more constructive way if you’ve been encouraging them than by discouraging them. (III:601) I can’t force anybody to give their all to Me. But whenever I see anybody close to that position, I will certainly encourage them, and fight to eradicate the circumstances and potential lures and distractions the devil will send their way in order to make them just continue in their usual rut of keeping other things on the top of their list above Me. (IV:138)

It’s encouraging when you notice that there has been some progress, isn’t it? (IV:193) Just remember David and the Israelite army shivering before Goliath, if you ever feel tempted to be discouraged by the fact that not too many are standing by your side! (IV:220) When there has been enough of bad and negative input flooding you from all sides and you’re discouraged, then it’s time to avail yourself of My Presence. (IV:231) I’m really the only truly efficient and reliable Help you can ever put your trust in, and I can only encourage you to keep doing that! (11:49) Giving up and surrendering in discouragement could definitely not be My desired goal. So, why do so many folks come to that conclusion? Their excuse in their minds is, “Guess You just didn’t make me strong enough.” I haven’t made anyone strong enough. Becoming strong is a matter of growth, and growth happens by simply keeping on what you’re supposed to do, even when you’re not 100% sure whether what you’re doing is what you’re supposed to do… anything, but quit! You become discouraged? That’s a good sign you’re on the right path, so don’t quit! (2012:45) You cannot dwell on the dreadful reality of people’s flaws, as real as they may be. They need encouragement. That’s what people thrive on. (2012:126) You can be encouraged to live in the assurance of My unconditional love and acceptance of You as My bride; that I see you as perfect before Me, even if in this present life you’re still having to go through some lessons, corrections and experience that are less than pleasant to go through at the moment. (2013:38) The devil will do all he can to discourage and scare you, but it’s important to keep your faith and trust that I’m still in control, no matter what he does! (2015:95) Don’t feel too discouraged! We just need a greater Power and Strength than what you would have been able to render in the flesh, anyway… so, don’t feel too bad about Us having to allow it to be weakened and make Us more able to do things through you! (2015:181) Cling to Us and our Help! – The only chance for anyone to make it through the dark times to come. – And definitely the only chance and way you’ll manage to be an encouragement to others around you during those times. Of course, the enemy will keep trying to make circumstances around you as tough as possible to discourage you and cause you to lose hope and be tempted to give up and quit. But instead, let it all make you stronger in your resistance against him, and let it draw you closer to Me, avail yourself of that plenty of Help from Up Here, and remember that you can’t lose if you don’t give up, because that Strength, Power and Source of it available from Up Here is much greater than his, even though it may still take faith to get ahold of it. Just remember that the hope you’re able to avail yourself of will also strengthen, encourage and offer help to others who’ll get around you! (16:6) Do what you can to make the best of things, and don’t let the forces of evil triumph over you, even though they do all they can to weaken and discourage you! (16:56) Don’t be too discouraged about getting into a state where you feel you can’t make it on your own anymore, or without My Help! It’s the best preparation for what’s up ahead of you. (16:74) Don’t get too discouraged about the bleak state of your conditions, but rejoice that in this I’ve got a greater chance to use you and work through you than when you’re all fit in your own conditions! (16:79) Don’t feel too threatened by the feelings of discouragement! Let them be a reminder of the fact that you need Our Strength, Help and encouragement as a preparation for the times not far away when no one will make it without! (16:84) Even if it’s difficult, don’t let it discourage you, but try as much as you can, even if it’s not as easy for you as it used to be! Don’t let it discourage you when things and conditions get tougher, but let it be an incentive for you to apply the Help We promised from Above! (16:86) Feeling weakened in your physical condition shouldn’t discourage you too much in regards of what’s to come, but rather hit you as an incentive to rely on the Strength and Power from Above, which is really what you’ll need to make it through the times coming. Feeling weak and discouraged? Look Up Here, from where you can receive Powers to help you make it through in spite of it all! (16:90)

If faith comes through the hearing of the Word, can you tell how it’s growing in you right now and lifting you up from the discouraging attitude the enemy’s been trying to plant in your life through the surrounding circumstances, fears and worries? (16:95) My input will give you some direction and encouragement, but you’ve also got to stay in prayer and tuned in to My Spirit – the Spirit of My heavenly Mother – the Holy Spirit, and all Her aids! You’ve got to keep resisting the enemy! Remember: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7)!” Don’t give in to his tactics of discouragement, but resist them! (16:96) I manage to deal with “impossibilities” you’re having to face. Don’t let them discourage you, but put that faith and trust in Me to strengthen and lift up your courage, outlook and confidence in the fact that with My Help things are going to work out! (16:99) You’re dependent on Me, My Help, encouragement and input… that’s a positive to Me! So, don’t be discouraged by the rough times that draw you closer to Me! The Day I’ll come to pick you up: Encouraging and inspiring news concerning the greatest and most positive Change of world history? Keep your vision and spiritual focus – your expectation – geared towards that! (16:107) Keep your focus directed Up Here, so that you can become a bigger source of hope and encouragement to those around you, instead of expecting too much from them! (16:108) If life’s a toughie, don’t be too discouraged about it, but just see it as preparation for the even toughest times to come! (16:109)

Make the coming of the Hereafter part of your message, your sample, and whatever you’ve got to portray and signify to others! Let them know about Heaven! – The better Thereafter! It should also help you (and others) to have a more positive outlook, even if what you see around you isn’t that uplifting and encouraging. Be encouraged through the fact that there’s Something Better to come! Let that spirit of encouragement flow through you, and do all you can to stay away from and clear of discouragement! I know times are rough and tough for you, but as you should know by know, just to prepare you for what’s to come that’ll be even rougher… So, don’t get discouraged and negative-minded about it! (2016:134) Don’t be discouraged when you feel quite incapable of making it through your days, but let it teach you to start using the Source of Power from Above to make it through! (16:139) Don’t get discouraged by physical weakness, but let it draw you closer to Me! Reminders of the fact that you need Me are good for you. Even if they may seems discouraging to you temporarily, remember that they’re drawing you closer to Me, which – in the end – will turn out to be the best thing that could have happened to you! Times of physical weakness may make you feel discouraged for starters, but as you draw your spiritual Strength from your communication with Me, you’ll realize that some good will come out of the initially apparent evil! Feeling discouraged? Time to tank up some of My encouragement and encouraging input! (2016:142) When you’re headed and bent on a new way of doing and approaching things, take My encouragement that it’s a pretty good sign that your leading towards it comes from Up Here, even if originally you didn’t feel that way about it! (2016:151) Hearing from Me is like feeding your soul, it’s daily guidance, or even just encouragement and strengthening of your faith you need, which comes from hearing My Word. (2016:155) Whenever one of My followers gets on the right track, the enemy fights it with doubts, fears and discouragement… and the best you can do is come to Me for the rescue. No wonder he fights you! Don’t get discouraged by it, but rather, encouraged, since it shows and confirms you’re fighting on the right side! Just as I couldn’t let him discourage and talk Me out of My sacrifice before My crucifixion. (2016:156) Don’t be discouraged by circumstances and conditions going on around you in that world, about to be completely taken over by our enemy and his host, who are already brainwashing folks through the media and “education” to have them ready for his ultimate rule! (2016:173) Don’t let earthly circumstances discourage you! If you’re dependent on My input and encouragement, take it as a heavenly sign and part of the necessary preparation to make it through what’s to come! (2016:193) The weaker you feel, let it be a sign of encouragement to you that through it, the stronger I can make you in the proper sense of Strength. So, don’t let that helpless feeling be a source of discouragement for you, but rather of encouragement!

Don’t let it discourage you, that feeling of incapability, but let it found the faith in you that greater things can be accomplished through one’s own lack of strength and energy and their connection with Heaven’s Source of Strength through Me instead! (2016:204) Keep daring to be different! One day you’ll be grateful for it and My counsel and encouragement to do so, even if right now it may still make you seem and appear a bit strange to some around you, or the enemy may tempt you to worry how on Earth you’ll make it without getting into the same gear everyone else is in. (17:24) To take whatever comes and make the best you manage of it is basically a major lesson for many… At least they’ll find some comfort that God’s folks weren’t all and only “perfect.” Someone else able to cope with and relate to their weaknesses might encourage them. (17:25) Don’t be discouraged by tough challenges, but let it excite you, since they’re what’s putting Us to the test! (17:31) I’m encouraging you to have the boldness of being different. (17:38) It may be a toughie, not being able to feel at home anywhere, which is why I keep encouraging you to keep your vision and focus geared toward your true Home. (17:46) My input gives you spiritual Strength and encouragement. When someone becomes dependent on My input and their communication with Me, that’s an asset from My point of view. So, don’t let your weakness discourage you, but try to see it from My point of view! (17:76) Can you feel the encouragement from the Holy Spirit? - That’s the Strength from Above! (17:93) Unbelievers may not have the enemy fighting them with his forces of discouragement, but being on My side and having Me as your Savior and Helper should give you some encouragement and the ability to make it through negative circumstances and conditions with My Help. (17:94) Let My connection with you be the encouraging and strengthening factor, and remember that it’s an important part of making it through times to come! (17:103) A life of faith will be the encouragement for others to help them make it through the troubled times to come: the - few, but all the more significant and impressive - lives of faith around them. (17:104) The devil will use whatever or whoever he can to discourage you, but all another reason and reminder for you to stick as close to Me as you can, in spite of any effort of his to interrupt that process. (17:109) Isn’t your time with Me a constant source of encouragement and getting your spirit lifted up? Learn to wait until the necessary inspiration comes to do things in My Might, and don’t feel discouraged about not being able to do them on your own! (17:116) See discouragement as one of the devil’s traits, and encouragement as one of Mine! Feel tempted to feel discouraged? Resist those temptations! (17:129) If the enemy cooks up some methods to distract and discourage you, resist him! And keep in prayer! Remember: you’re My lights down there in that darkness! So, keep shining, and don’t let the devil discourage you! (17:137) Get ready to deal with what comes and take My encouragement that We’ll make it somehow! Together with Me, you should! (17:138)

I’ve brought you this far, have confidence that I’ll lead and guide you even further - in spite of anything the enemy might do to discourage you! (17:145)

…Envy & Jealousy Be not envious of evildoers! Even if they may not appear to be evildoers on the surface, just ‘perfectly normal’ people, sometimes the greatest sin anyone can commit is to do nothing! So, be not envious of selfish doers of nothing to alleviate

the suffering around them. There is not a colder and emptier and harder heart than that of a person who has everything in the physical and yet lacks the love to share it. (I:50) Envy is one of the devil's weapons to suck the joy out of life. Instead of keeping you thankful for what you've got, it keeps you staring at the hole in the doughnut: "But there's something missing!" Envy spoils it all, no matter how blessed you are, for it will never allow you to see your blessing but only what you're missing out on. (I:472) Daydreaming about the greener grass on the other side of the fence, instead of enjoying what you've got right there and now is that typical mental scenario of envy, in which everybody else has always got the better deal, and "man, you're really missing out on it," that the devil tries to weave in so many minds. Instead of living fully in the present and enjoying the here and now, he causes you to chase after some fairy-tale future, not realistic, but effective enough to distract you from all that you could find at hand. (I:610) It's a test, sometimes, when you see all the evident "blessings" of those who are reaping abundant benefits from their evil doings... But "be not envious of evildoers" (Ps.37)! (II:441) Envy and jealousy - spiritual jealousy - are rampant in churches, and why I can often rather use simple-minded folks who are not so stuck on themselves. (III:51) Envy can make you think that what others have should be rightfully yours, causing you to put yourself above them and thus causing you to fail love... (III:368) People can get envious and resentful over other people’s spiritual wealth, just as they can get envious of the physical wealth of others, even if you give it all away. It’s so different, therefore they resist it. (III:524) My Word admonishes My brides and believers to not be envious of evil doers, those blessed by the enemy who rule and reign in this present world. (III:589) Be mindful of the fact that you don’t have to be and should not be envious of evildoers, and you wouldn’t want to be like them – independent of Me and making a mess of things, because they think they deserve to treat themselves selfishly and lord it out over the poorer and weaker ones of the world disrespectful! (III:597) Be not envious of evildoers, don’t keep dreaming their same temporal dreams or get caught up in their world, which is not yours; not your home… But trust that there is something better to come! (IV:68) All you really have is what I give you, and if I give you everything, then why waste time trying to please anybody else? If I’m jealous, then it’s only for your sake, because I know what’s really good for you. (IV:134) It’s definitely not comparable with human jealousy when I refer to “a jealous God.” I simply do it for your sake, because in the long run it’s better for you, your loved ones and your relationship, as well as any object of your desire and your relationship to it, if you learn to not make them the most important item in your life, but try to reserve that place as much as possible to Me. (IV:479) Why always keep staring at what those exceptional other few have got, and what you don’t have? Why fall into the trap of envy? (11:139) Some of the greatest gifts I give to everyone is the experience of having to cope with what they’re handed, even – or perhaps especially – in the light of the fact that some people seem to have it so much easier… Are you going to let envy devour you? Or can you genuinely say, “Good for them. – I guess I just ain’t ready for that type of blessing yet…”? There have always been folks around who’ve had tons more than what the majority of those around them had, and it’s one of the challenges of life not to become envious of them, or covet what they have, but to be content with what you have… (2013:73)

While you may be tempted to envy the more capable and stronger type of folks around you, see it by faith: My aspect of godly Strength coming through physical and carnal weakness! (17:95) Not to become jealous of Me is what wives have to learn. (17:131)

…Evolution (= Evilution) & Atheism Those half-developed organs that Evolution expects people to believe in won't work. You can't breathe with a halfdeveloped lung, or live with an unfinished liver. It has to be fully developed, nothing half-baked, before it will work. (II:132) Laying down your life for others defies the flesh and all that "makes sense" in terms of self-preservation, the so-called rules of "evolution," which is really just the philosophy of the devil. (II:371) Nowadays they think they're "enlightened" and have "progressed" and "evolved" away from those “primitive” days in which children were an essential part of their family. (II:421) People seem to look better on the surface, almost as if to prove evolution right, but they aren't any better when it comes to true and lasting values. They've actually lost a lot of quality and "information" when it comes to that. A lot of people may think that they are better than their forefathers, that they may have "evolved" and progressed, but an objective, un-biased look and comparison might tell a different story, in which many of those who have lived before would shake their heads at the arrogance of today's population, to actually fall for such a gross deception to think that they have improved, when, according to lasting standards and values, it is rather plain that man has deteriorated. About the only human quality that has truly evolved beyond recognition and to unimaginable proportions is their pride. It has inflated, just like their currency. (II:445) What sort of good advice can you expect from somebody who seriously believes that man evolved from the monkeys? And that what's going on inside the human brain is basically evolved animal behavior? Animals illustrate human behavior in many ways, but to turn it around and base your knowledge about humans on the assumption that it comes from the animals, is not exactly conducive to genuine wisdom, nor real solid knowledge about the human psyche. Unfortunately, by denying the true origin of the human spirit, man is often somewhat reduced to that animal state in which they believe they are in the first place, for "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." If he believes he is an animal, an animal he shall be. And the more people there are walking about, thinking they are animals, the more it seems to confirm that delusion. The "herd instinct," "Monkey see, monkey do." (III:45) Mankind isn’t evolving as much as it’s devolving. (III:536) Lifeless matter has never brought forth any living thing that has a spirit, contrary to the evolutionary magicians’ tales. (III:597)

That’s why the theory of Evolution is so popular: it portrays mankind as its own master and takes them off the hook of having to deal with the consequences of their actions. It doesn’t even matter much whether you’re an atheist or a Christian who believes in Evolution: the notion is the same, that somehow God or nature has favored you, and put you in an advanced position over the less privileged of the world, a position you ought to take advantage of in your “right mind,” according to that philosophy, where the stronger and smarter and more developed will simply outlive the weaker. – The direct opposite of all I ever taught. That’s why in many cases Christians who believe in Evolution are really hypocrites, and not true believers at all, because their lives are guided by and geared toward the teachings of Evolution and “the survival of the fittest,” rather than My teachings of “Blessed are the meek and merciful.” (IV:132) Many atheists want the glory and credit for themselves, which is exactly what the devil wanted, too, and it shows just how much alike their ways of thinking are, and another factor why they refuse to accept him as a reality: If they would accept the devil as a reality, they would actually recognize the similarities between their trains of thought. Those atheists say that faith is a crutch, but I’m saying, “Well, let’s see how much further all those human crutches are going to get you that you are relying and leaning on and putting your trust in!” (IV:241) A lot about atheists’ reasoning has to do with their own self-righteous view of things the way We made or allowed them, and the assumption that they would have done better. The suffering that was allowed to be inflicted on Job was instigated by Satan, in order to get Job to doubt My goodness and to curse Me. And he still largely abides by the same technique, as evident from the arguments of these atheists, who could not possibly believe in a God Who allows this kind of apparently unjust suffering. What the devil failed to manage in the life of Job, he did manage and achieve in the lives of countless modern day atheists who use the same argumentation and base their unbelief on their own experiences and observations regarding the suffering in this world. Atheism and atheist thought – the struggle to make it through life and history without Me – is necessary in order for the final conclusions to be reached, and for the universal lesson to be learned and taught. (IV:248) When observing human nature, one could almost think that there is something true about the theory of Evolution’s claim that man acts out of the same survival instincts as the animals, the quest of “the survival of the fittest.” Watching the way people behave is quite conducive to that assumption, since it seems to be the only logical explanation.

Well, My explanation is the Fall of Man from a state that was supposed to have been intended for something a lot closer to divinity into a state much closer to that of the animal world. I had intended for man to rule over creation, but by accepting the lies and deceptions of the devil, which first promised them divinity on behalf of their own actions and merits, namely the evil action of disobedience to Me, they were tricked into an existence that is becoming less “divine” all the time. Ultimately, over the last century, they have basically come to accept the paradigm that they’re not much different from the animals, at all, and so they have come to act more and more like them, treating each other with less and less respect, and valuing human life even less, in many cases, than animal life. (IV:283) The teaching of evolution is an insult in claiming that it all just happens by itself. Well, even so then, the things that happen “by themselves” shall turn out and prove to be greater than all the vain and harmful efforts of man’s own feverish and carnal works, serving in the long run as not much more than a lesson of which way you should rather not have taken. (IV:463) Perhaps the fact that monkeys are the animals that resemble man most in their likeness doesn’t mean that the latter descended from them, as much as it resembles a warning that that’s what he might wind up like if he neglects to use his own brain. (11:105) In the old days of the Romans, Greeks or Babylonians, etc., the enemy had made himself and his gang popular as “gods,” but since the rise of Christianity, he figured it would be smartest to get rid of religion in general and raise the popularity of the belief that all things came into existence by themselves. And your race descended from the monkeys, which is why it’s not too bad if people still act a bit like animals… So… not feeling at home in that world, where you’re all supposed to have descended from the animals, and are free to act like some of them, accordingly? Well, don’t feel too bad about it! It’s almost good news that the existence in that rut is limited by time, isn’t it? And after that, you’ll find out for sure whether there’s a greater truth withheld from the masses by the usurper and his bunch… (15:168) In a world where the enemy has managed to have just about everyone taught that all things came about by themselves through evolution, witnessing has become one of the toughest tasks you can’t really manage without the power of miracles from Above. (16:52) The times of trouble this world needs to go through are a major lesson of history about independence from its Creator, whose founder was the enemy, and while he took over godly positions in the past, of Zeus or Jupiter and quite some others, after the rise of Christianity, the best lie to deceive folks was the “science” of Evolution, through which he made the majority of folks believe that there is no God or Creator, and it all came to being by itself… Just as he took on the role of Creator in the past, his final lie has become, “There is no Creator!” – Making folks inherit that attitude of himself: “You are gods yourselves!” Now, that life can be tougher and less pleasant in a society where Evolution (Creation by itself) is being taught as scientific fact, with people resulting as fruits of that attitude of pride, should be obvious, and another region where faith in Me is still more common might just be easier to make it through… Less pride, and more humility and love instead, including hospitality, helpfulness and friendship… In other words: spiritual and emotional warmth, instead of the cold you feel around you elsewhere. A lie – that everything created itself – is easier to accept for those who receive the enemy’s wavelength of pride more than Our truth of Love and humility… - One of history’s major lessons. (16:53) That’s one of the factors of the theory of Evolution: claiming that things are getting better by themselves all the time… when you can tell that it’s not really so, but in many aspects things are getting worse, and it’s more like “evilution:” – the forces of evil getting stronger and becoming more powerful on the globe. (16:56) Modern scientists claim that everything physical created itself within billions of years… You can imagine who cooked up that theory. And if that’s what “science” is based on, you can also imagine how reliable it is. (16:149) We’re not a selfish “tribe”… one of the biiig differences between Us and the enemy and his crowd. And you can definitely tell that they’ve influenced the majority of the world population to tune in to their gear… That’s one of the main reasons to remember not to allow oneself to be selfish. It’s a quality of the kind of crowd you wouldn’t want to belong to. Evolution teaches that it’s the manner inherited from animals you supposedly descended from. Well, if you believe in Me, and in the Father as the Creator, then you should also believe that the animal cooking up that stuff is the same that got the world into its troubles with his nice-sounding lies he told Eve… causing Adam to fall for it, too. And that trend of falling for Satan’s nice-sounding lies has grown into a huge system and brainwashing process that only few choosing-the-right-alternative-chosen-ones can snap out of. (16:171) Many folks can’t see the sense and purpose in what’s going on around them. That’s why the theory that you all descended from the monkeys sounded – and still sounds – more sensible to them… so they don’t have to worry about any deeper sense and purpose behind all that’s going on around them that they’d have a hard time figuring out what for, except their own survival, the way the animals seem to do. Considering that there’s an end coming for everyone on the planet, of this game of “believing and going by what you see…,” if you didn’t descend from the monkeys, but there’s Someone greater in charge of it all, along with that possibility

that there’s something going on with that existence after physical death for which I came to Earth in the first place to make it available for those who’d believe and receive Me and that truth and fact… well,… welcome to the discovery of the greater sense and purpose of life than the struggle for mere physical – though temporal – survival! (16:182) Part of your witness and testimony is also set in your life-style; and by not supporting the Evolution-based educational system, that is some sort of testimony. (17:36) What folks are being taught in the system is a bit like expecting things to grow on Earth without the sun; but that’s another advantage for the enemy of having had them cook up the tale of Evolution… If everything has been cooked up by itself, and it’s nothing but coincidence that some star has certain affects of the place you live on… what else is there to care about but yourself and your own abilities and capacities? (17:72) The lie that everything popped up by itself is what the majority believes and broadcasts everywhere, and it’s hard to resist that sort of massive influence. (17:75) The evolutionary monkey-business factor of education that things just came by themselves, is one of those outrageous mindsets Creators of it all have a hard time dealing with… especially when its effect hits Their very believers. (17:96) The enemy’s teaching that all things came by themselves doesn’t make it easier to believe in and honor the One that faith tells you all things came from… but what can you expect from a world taken over through man’s choices by His enemy, just to show the universe where that rejection will lead? (17:124) Keep receiving the living Words through which all things above and around you were created… and not the lies of His impostor, who got the majority to believe that all things created themselves! (17:146)

…Expectation(s) You've begun to realize how much more of My Love there is than what you thought, how far it goes, and how it takes your life to places, angles and situations you never ever would have expected. Things have turned out so different from what you expected, you were often tempted to doubt the whole thing altogether, but you had to learn that I am in control, and not you. (III:298) You’re by no means the only man in history who has been driven to the edge of despair because you would have expected more from your life; something more harmonious, and you feel quite disappointed. (III:536) People have needs that they want fulfilled, and that they expect other humans to cater to. The problem often is that because they fail to recognize Me as the sole capable Candidate to live up to their expectations, they’re hauling in more and more disappointments from their fellow humans, who simply can’t. That’s one reason why God made you all so imperfect: so that it would be more obvious for each of you that other human beings simply won’t be capable of fulfilling your every need and desire, your longings for happiness, etc.; but only few seem to grasp the point and continue to have unrealistic expectations from their fellows. (III:549) You can expect to be loved by Me and receive from Me all the love you need in order to find strength to give love yourself, but you can never expect the love you seek from others. It’s just not within their capacity to give that kind of love, nor to fulfill your expectations. (III:556) People with unrealistic expectations from others can often become the cruelest taskmasters; a classic example of what lack of appreciation can do in people’s lives. (III:568) You cannot allow unrealistic expectations to separate you from people! (III:577) I’ve got to become all you need to the extent that you won’t turn your expectations to others anymore. (III:588) What I expect from you aren’t any high and lofty achievements and accomplishments, but just little humble but necessary acts. (IV:48) I see your state and remember your frame, that you are but dust. Thus I don’t expect too much from you, and usually not as much as you’d like to be able to expect from yourself. (IV:87)

Make a believing effort and project your hopes and expectations on Me, not some carnal solution of something you might do in the arm of the flesh! (IV:155) Expectation… The hand of faith reaches out and waits. That is how faith works. (IV:189) Unrealistic expectations frustrate and make dissatisfied with My creation and the way things are... to expect a bit more than you actually can expect from your fellow humans, yourself and your reality... (IV:261) When it comes to those “experts” on religiosity telling Me how I am supposed to run My business, I may just choose to do things totally contrary to their expectation, just to remind them Who is Boss. (IV:271) Don’t look for someone to make you happy and fulfill your expectations of them, but for someone you can make happy and give of your – but better even – My Love to! (IV:337) You’re going to have to get out the umbrella, if you’re praying for rain and expect it to happen. (IV:380) I like to do things contrary to natural expectation and contrary to what the odds say the outcome is going to be. (IV:420) If you’re looking for someone perfect to put your trust in, you’re going to have to come to Me, instead of projecting those ideals and yearnings into someone of flesh and blood who could never live up to such expectations… (IV:421) You will never impress anyone as genuine by pretending to be someone you’re not, and trying to do something that wasn’t really authentically your calling to begin with, even if you think that that’s the thing that should be expected of you… (IV:435) Neither I nor you can expect more of you than what you’re capable of. (IV:438) I still come in to brighten up the seemingly hopeless situation, will bring hope and light and life where hardly any was still to be expected. I’m the unexpected Hope and Salvation in spite of everything that could have possibly gone wrong, the Answer, relief and Salvation that comes despite of it all… (IV:483) More often than not, people tend to expect a little too much from their lives and tend to rather fail to appreciate and make the best out of what they’ve got. (11:65) Why do you keep expecting of life that which I never promised? (11:100) You can always expect to find Me, the truth and the Real Thing, in the totally unexpected. (11:115) Learn from Us that love goes beyond the expectation of perfection in others! Accepting others the way they are – trusting and knowing that changes will come eventually, according to Our pace from Above – is one of the patterns of love, instead of expecting perfection, which nobody down there should be expected to show forth. (16:50) Don’t expect any perfect conditions in a world that will be taken over by the physical reign of our enemy! (16:53) With a world being taken over by the forces of evil, you can’t expect too much good from it. (16:56) Rough times? Get used to it, for they’ll be even much rougher in times to come! With kids around you that are only expecting the best for themselves in that world around you it ain’t easy… but preparing them for it the best you can would be wise. (16:63) No more use in expecting solely nice and pleasant times! Sometimes, the more one’s been given, the more will be expected of him, and when that’s not there yet, well, you just might have to make up for it first, before you can enter into heavenly rest. (16:66) You know the reason why life down there isn’t perfect. So, stop expecting it to be! It’s a lesson for many: to make it through what comes, instead of going through frustration for having to pass less perfect times than expected or hoped for. Some troubles in this world are just coming inevitably, so don’t just expect different and rosier circumstances, but pray for the victory to make it through them! (16:76) There’s a much better Home expecting you at the end of it all! (16:82) We’re not about to put you in a box, nor expecting you to do things you’re having a hard time with. As long as you’re still learning things from Us, that’s already a lot more than we can expect from many others these days. (16:83)

The toughest times on Earth are coming… so, having a bit of a too positive expectation of circumstances wouldn’t be the smartest thing. You can’t expect to get through the roughest time of history the same way you have made it through the peaceful prior decades. (16:84) Since what’s expecting you and your planet is one of the most drastic and ferocious changes in history… well, it takes a bit more preparation than you’ve been used to. (16:92) To just keep having good times when the worst times of history are approaching is a fairly unrealistic expectation, and one of the disadvantages of having had the enemy entirely spoil those recent generations to where all they’re expecting is good and easy times, when predictions and warnings of harder times to come have been around for decades. So, all the better you get prepared! – Not expecting easy times anymore, but getting ready for the tough times that I predicted to John nearly 2000 years ago. (16:101) Some forecasts came to pass later than expected, as with Jonah. But it didn’t mean they never did, and it doesn’t mean they never will! (16:104) Don’t be too shocked by the daily hard times, but see them as something you’ll have to get used to with a future that’s expecting the globe! (16:105) The Day I’ll come to pick you up: Encouraging and inspiring news concerning the greatest and most positive Change of world history! Keep your vision and spiritual focus – your expectation – geared towards that! (16:107) Don’t expect too much from what surrounds you, but keep your visions, hope, and faith set Up Here! Keep your focus directed Up Here, so that you can become a bigger source of hope and encouragement to those around you, instead of expecting too much from them! (16:108) It’s miracles you have to be hoping for, not anything natural expectation would be able to promise you! (16:109) Don’t keep expecting a perfect life down there, but keep your vision on the Perfect Up Here through faith! (16:122) Don’t forget that there’s Something Better expecting you, compared to down there, and you shouldn’t just get prepared for it yourself, but make the coming of the Hereafter part of your message, your sample, and whatever you’ve got to portray and signify to others! I don’t expect you to be perfect, just trying to cheer you up and strengthen you to make it, both, through what’s coming, and through right now… the preparatory times for it. With conditions not being perfect around you, just let it remind you that’s just not what you can expect from a world run and soon even physically governed by our enemy… (16:134) Not being able to quench the thirsts and desires of the flesh is part of preparation for what’s expecting you in the world’s future. So, embrace the tough times through faith! You can’t expect the good times to keep running on. (16:154) Comfortability is not what’s expecting the world, and not what’s coming! Comfortability and coziness, at this point in history has the price of expecting trouble along with it to pay. That things aren’t going easy or rosy in a world like that has to be expected, and you’ve got to be ready for that, and expect My miracles, not conditions and circumstances around you to be perfect and pleasant! (16:168) Life may not have become what you’ve expected from it, but… if I’ve been announcing changes for the better, you can tell by now I was pretty much referring to the Hereafter. Sometimes it’s better to expect a little less of what life has to offer… to have humbler expectations. One of the negative sides of pride: always expecting too much, figuring you deserve it. The humbler side is content with less, doesn’t expect or think it deserves more. So, one of the wrong attitudes of proud people: to just expect too much. (16:169) If you’re a stranger in the world, your Home is Mine, the Place Up Here that’s expecting you. (16:171) Don’t let the circumstances scare or frighten you… and especially not the enemy with his scary tactics of making you expect the worst of what could be! But remember your heavenly protectors instead! Learning to depend on Me and your heavenly Help is not a negative when you have a glimpse of what’s expecting the Earth in the near future. (16:175) Expect to see things you’ve never seen and experienced before; which is why I keep reminding you not to set your faith on the things you can see with your physical eyes, but set it Up Here through the spiritual glimpse, vision and focus at the carnally unseen! (2016:179)

In this world there isn’t much left you can expect from it. That’s why, raise your expectations Up Here, the only Place you can set realistic hopes on! If the world doesn’t have much left to offer, raise your visions and expectations Up Here, and receive what We’ve got to offer! (2016:195) One of the advantages of not feeling comfy or at home in the world: you’re much more prone to feel at Home Here where I am and We’re all ultimately expecting you. (2016:197) If We’re accepting folks’ weaknesses, don’t you think it’s something you should learn, too? It’s another aspect and factor of quitting to expect perfection from others. When things aren’t working out as easily and swiftly as you might be hoping and expecting, it’s a signal from Up Here that you need a bit more trust and patience for Our Force of Help to come to pass in your life; and respecting that as of greater importance than your own management of circumstances is important. (2016:201) Even if things run contrary to your hopes and expectations, try to put your faith in Me instead of those circumstances, that I still manage to make the best for you out of it! (2016:203) To ask for My Help and expect Me to do it through you is an act of faith, and one reason why faith is so important. (17:4) To expect blissful perfection of times up ahead of you would be a serious mistake. (17:5) What can you expect from a world run by God’s enemy? (17:9) When things aren’t going the way you expected them to… well, another sign to be in tune with the leading, guiding and direction from Above, or asking for the heavenly Help you might need in order to make it happen. (17:12) Expecting times and conditions to stay as they are isn’t the right move in a world run by God’s enemy. You just can’t expect life to be fun, a piece of cake or vacation time with the forces of evil approaching their ultimate rule over the planet, doing their best to brainwash the planet’s population to get them ready for it. With expected troubles not showing up for decades, it can make it harder for those having gotten used to the easy times when the belated fulfillment of prophecies finally comes rolling in. A world run by the devil just can’t be Heaven on Earth. If he’s the boss of hell, then that’s more likely what you’ve got to expect on Earth, latest by the time he’ll be taking it over as the final ruler of the ugly stretch of world history. (17:13) For people who have gotten used to expecting the pleasant sides of life, it’s pretty much tougher having to deal with the not so pleasant sides. That’s why I’m preparing you and telling you, “Get used to it!” You can’t expect all things to stay the same. Consider it a fact that it’ll require miracles to make it through what’s coming; and some of the things you’re expecting, already require miracles! Expecting life to be easier means, you’re not ready to face the challenges. (17:25) There just isn’t much you’ll be able to expect from people. But that’s what strengthens your dependence on Me; the lack of reliability on other folks around you. When things aren’t going and flowing as you’d expect them to, see that as a necessary part of preparation for what’s to come – when pretty much nothing down there will run the way things are supposed to! (17:31) Being ready for changes is a good preparation for the reality that often differs strongly from people’s assumptions or carnal expectations. (17:38) With the god of war running things down there, what else can you expect than what he’s the god of? (17:46) In this world that’s not your home, run by God’s enemy getting ready for his ultimate global reign… What can you expect a world like this to have in store for you? (17:50) What can you expect from a world in which the Son of God had to carry a cross up Mount Calvary that He was going to be nailed to, after having been beaten bloody and wounded the day before? (17:51) Sometimes it’s the unexpected items and substances that show up with more positive traits and services than one would have expected from their carnal mind. God’s ways are full of surprises. – Surprises to make something or someone of things or folks that no one would have expected. (17:53) Followers of Mine and children of the Father usually tend to expect something better than what realistically can be expected in the there and now.(17:56) Crucifixion looked like an obvious defeat to those around Me, one they didn’t expect, even though I had told them… but that’s one grand example of accepting those tough challenges before you. They may result in something no one would

have expected, such as My resurrection three days later, and along with that, continued life in spirit for those who believe in Me when hit by death of the flesh. (17:66) Tests of faith: when things happen one didn’t expect. (17:74) As you can’t expect perfection from anyone down there, they also can’t expect it of you. (17:77) Get into the prayers-for-miracles-groove! And expecting them by faith! (17:80) I’m not expecting more from My followers and disciples than they’re able to do. (17:82) Only expecting the best from life in this world isn’t exactly the most realistic attitude. Getting prepared and learning how to deal with tough circumstances are the sort of challenges folks should get ready for, and not just wander through life like spoiled kids only expecting the best and easiest way possible. (17:88) If everyone else around you seems to be expecting things to keep going the way they are forever, let it make you see preparation as a rare positive and advantage! (17:91) Take challenges cheerfully, expecting by faith My Help from Above to see you through them! (17:93) Stop expecting perfect conditions down there! I’m afraid they won’t be found down there. So, keep your faith vision pointed Up Here! (17:98) Learning not to expect perfection around, and thus becoming less disappointed, that’s a positive. (17:101) Experiences have a reason and purpose, even if a bit dark. - But what can you expect from a life in a world temporarily taken over by the king of darkness? (17:107) Look forward to your arrival at the true Home Up Here! Make it part of your consciousness, that your Home is expecting you Up Here. (17:110) Aim the desires for better times at the better Home expecting you, since of the current times down there, I’m afraid there isn’t much of anything better to expect! Don’t expect more from this world than it’s got to offer…! (17:111) Don’t expect perfection down there, just know by faith that it’s expecting you Up Here! (17:113) The enemy’s teaching that all things came by themselves doesn’t make it easier to believe in and honor the One that faith tells you all things came from… but what can you expect from a world taken over through man’s choices by His enemy, just to show the universe where that rejection will lead? (17:124) Place your expectancy Up Here, from where you can expect what you desire and are looking for! (17:126) Get ready, prepared for, and expect just about anything, and get used to depending on miracles to survive each day! (17:140) One of My ways: not to use exactly what would be expected of Me to use for My work to get done… but just using someone or something unexpected to give the world some surprises. (17:141) Don’t expect the unexpectable, but just use My heavenly Power at your disposal through prayer, and make the best you can out of it all! (17:143)

…Experience I want you and everybody to know why they believe in Me, and why it's good to obey Me - by experience, and not just because somebody told them. (II:66)

You should go through any unpleasant experience with your whole heart and both eyes open for the biggest possible amount of benefits you can carry away from it, not "get it over with as quickly as possible." You've got to embrace the hard times and fully taste them and experience them, so that you can really carry away from them all that I want you to. In many aspects they're more valuable than the pleasant times. (II:572) Every time you manage to get over another hurdle, another obstacle and challenge in life, it will strengthen your faith to make it over the next one. Your faith will no longer just rely on My Promises to you, but also on the experience that I am well able to keep them. (II:575) Experience is the best teacher. (III:5) I want you to be open, not stuck in prejudices, even if based on former experiences. (III:32) It takes the "sting" out of what you're experiencing when you know it's for your good. (III:51) The human spirit is like a wild horse that needs to be tamed through the experiences it suffers. (III:68) "Pray without ceasing" means, "be in tune with Me always," constantly. And whenever you experience moments when that's not the case, then it's usually a reminder that you would have been better off if it would have been so. (III:70) One has to watch out that they're not confusing love with some own selfish need for security or affection and something that will actually stop them from experiencing the fullness of My true Love in their lives. Love will lead you to situations that are beyond your experiences, to places beyond your present limits. (III:83) The enemy has a very necessary purpose: to lend extra and additional evidence to the Word of Truth of its Power by the adversity with which he resists and fights it, tries to besmirch and nullify and contradict it. He says, "Did God really say so?" and prompts man to find out by his own experience. (III:149) A lot of lessons and experiences in life lead to the same conclusion and realization of how much you need Me. (III:152) There's nothing that teaches you how to do it like the experience you gain from learning how not to do it. (III:172) Some folks just don't want to be helped, and the best thing you can do for them is let them go and allow Me to teach them the lessons they need through their experiences. (III:174) I've had to let you experience the difference between walking the path of Light, and thinking you're walking in it, all the while following the voices and phantoms the enemy camouflages as Mine. He has done so since the beginning of time, and it's only life's experiences which truly teach you to know the difference. (III:262)

You've had to make all these, what you might call negative experiences, in order to glean wisdom from them. You've had to go down that road and taste from your own experiences, the hurt of your falls, just where it is that man's way is leading, and how much better God's way is, in comparison. Nothing is quite the same as personal experience, when it comes to learning. You can only glean so much from watching others and learning from their experience. What will stick with you forever is your own experiences, your own pains and hurts and consequences of your own poor choices and mistakes... (III:269) Sometimes you cannot relate very much to what folks have got to say. You figure, it's kind of irrelevant to the scope of eternity to listen to tales about seemingly insignificant incidents, or whatever. But if you consider that what they are telling you is what occupies their mind right now, that those experiences constitute their reality right now, then it becomes a responsibility. Never deprive yourself of the opportunity to learn and glean something from their experience, even if it's just the attempt to associate and identify with their world view or their momentary perspective! (III:284) When somebody wants to be the friend of the world, then they just have to go through that experience of what it means to become a temporary enemy of God. (III:297) Experience has taught that life has this quality of tossing about all former expectations. (III:326) Whatever lesson I try to teach you always brings home the point better when there's a real life experience attached with it. (III:336)

It's really not always that obvious, what is really good and what is bad, unless you have come to experience it by the fruits of it. (III:339)

The Great Architect of Life has been at work here, and you know by experience that that's just how He works, He can do no other: the latter will always be better and superior than the former, when it has His handwriting and stamp on it. He doeth all things well. (III:353) Everybody’s got to make their own set of mistakes, and part of love is to grant them that freedom and let them, even if you may know better, and can foresee the end of it. They’ve got to make their own experiences. (III:372) “Choosing the good and eschewing the evil” requires a bit of time and experience to learn. (III:380) Some of the paradoxes in life take time to understand. It’s time that makes them beautiful, valuable, and turns them into experience and wisdom that others will be able to benefit from as well. (III:385) Experience has taught Me a lot. I know that sometimes those who at first scream “I will,” later on peter out, and the reluctant ones might carry on the work after the enthusiasts are gone. (III:406) Remember that all that happens to you, the Father allows for a purpose! Submit to it, “let it be,” yield to the flow and just let the lesson and the experience sink in! (III:417) It’s a good and wise thing to collect wisdom and experience that will see you through the storm, and when the time comes, others with you. (III:426) If you focus too much on the creation instead of the Creator and worship what’s given instead of the Giver, you’re bound to experience the repercussions. (III:439) All have to make their own experiences, including their own disappointments and awakenings about the System. Who’s to say who can make it, and who’s going to make it, and who’s got what it takes to make it? Haven’t you experienced that usually those who make it in the end were those who looked the least as if they had what it took? (III:447) What’s important is that no matter what you see or experience, you don’t lose the love, but you keep coming back to Me faithfully for more love to pass on to the world! (III:454) If I have granted you the liberty to go out and make your own experiences to teach you where the world is at, then you must grant that liberty to your children as well. (III:459) The present life on Earth is in many aspects the contrast to heavenly Life Here in My heavenly and eternal Realm. But you need to get to know this contrast in order to experience greater appreciation for what I have done. (III:485) Learning isn’t just about acquiring knowledge. It’s living the experience you’re growing through, feeling it, absorbing it and letting it transform you. (III:488) You can’t just get to My type of conclusion and happy ending by merely going by your own natural experiences alone, leaning on your own understanding. You need discernment that digs deeper and an ear that hears My whispers in your heart that will tell you how you truly ought to react. (III:491) Pain is a greater taskmaster than bliss. And what’s more, it amplifies the bliss you will experience as a reward for your having learned the lessons manifold. (III:501) Every day is a fresh learning experience. You’ve come to conclusions, and human conclusions are in some ways more helpful in teaching others than divine revelations. It’s the difference between one who teaches what he has learned from books and one who teaches what he has learned from experience. (III:505) Normally, cats wouldn’t accept people as bonafide source of food and their needs, they’d follow their instincts and look for mice and birds and anything they can hunt. But after a while experience teaches them that these humans taking care of them, especially that one special human that seems to be in charge, are an exceptional source that is to be trusted in spite of the natural instincts that tell them to go looking elsewhere for food. That’s how it is with Me and you, too. Your natural senses are still trying to look elsewhere for the satisfaction of your desires and needs, but I want you to realize from your experiences, that there is an even more trustworthy Source of all the things you need, and that is Me. I have given you so many other things that it hasn’t been easy for you to stay focused on Me, but I’m using these things as learning experiences for you to find out and filter out what is really best and essential. I am the Essential. I am what you need. (III:512) Wisdom isn’t an inherent quality of mankind, but something that is gained by the experience of where your own “smartness” will lead you, as you suffer the consequences of choosing your own, usually wrong ways. (III:519)

I can relate to your experiences, because I have not only My own, physical life-time on Earth as an experience to account for, but also that of each of My brides throughout the ages, who have let Me partake of their lives. You do have a High Priest Who can be touched with the feeling of your infirmities and trials, even if I may have never gone through the exact experiences during My Life in the flesh… (III:536) You’ve got to count your blessings! You’ve got to take to heart how well I am providing for you, protecting you, and make it possible for you to enjoy life, so that a confidence will be built up through this lasting experience that will strengthen you for the not-so-pleasant days ahead. (III:540) It’s natural for the flesh to think of itself as the greatest, and thus the most worthy of causes to promote. That’s why I’m allowing you to make experiences that prove to you otherwise and that expose the true, treacherous, deceitful nature of the flesh. (III:544) I want you to learn something out of a situation. I want you to eat it, chew on it, and not spit it out until you’ve fully tasted this lesson and experience, because it’s essential for My training and molding you into what you are supposed to be. The only way out is the way through it! You’re going to have to experience it, go through it, and carry your cross, which is that situation and challenge you find yourself in at any given moment. Just as the cross was My destiny, this is yours. Suffer it! Experience it! Live it! Endure it! And you’ll see that the resurrection that will result from it will have been worth the pain. (III:557) I like for you to find things out using your own mind, your experiences and conclusions, along with all you’re learning by trial and error, finding out in the long run where things are not at, and which doctrines and theories evidently cannot be truth. (III:562) Isn’t it worth it having to experience the darkness every now and then in order to fully come to appreciate the light? Everyone experiences Salvation in their own way. You cannot dictate your own experiences, nor views, on others. Be open for them to make their own experiences! (III:564) I’m trying to teach and rear God’s children and creatures gently, by experience, and with a lot of patience (eternity’s a long, long time), and thus aim to blend them and meld them together, not for them to become totally uniform, but to nonetheless learn to get along better with each other and become better balanced in their different traits and qualities. (III:569) I’m teaching you personally through the School of Life and your experiences, all that you have to go through, your trials and lessons… these are all ways in which I communicate and interact with you. (III:585) Some of the most precious lessons learned come from deep, dark experiences… and avoiding those simply equals the foregoing of that wisdom otherwise gained. Trust Me, that contrary to what it may seem to you at the moment, those tough experiences are infinitely more valuable than your happy and easy times. (III:589) The mind working on its own without My Spirit will just bring forth the fruits of the flesh. And so you wind up tired, exhausted and frustrated instead of fulfilled and satisfied with your achievements… I have to allow you to make these experiences to drive home the importance of depending on Me instead of doing it on your own. I need you to find out by experience that the results simply won’t be the same when you try to do things without Me as when you include Me and commit the day into My hands first. (IV:15) Sometimes the attitude toward the world will change later on in life, according to personal experiences. You’re in the world to make certain experiences in it, and you just can’t save your child from that path any more than I was able to save you from it… Everybody has to make their own experiences in the world that will make them determine whether they feel at home in it, or whether they’ll refuse to settle for what it has got to offer them, and seek a better place instead… It’s part of obtaining a greater understanding of My mind, the mind of God, and learning to not only see things through My eyes, but also experiencing them with the Father’s heart. I don’t only want you to learn to see and think as I do, but also to feel and to love as I do, and the only way to achieve that is via the path of suffering and pain that you experience through the conflicts. To be forsaken by your own for the sake of the world is a very real experience for Me and the Father to deal with, and We would like to allow as many as possible to participate and partake in this pain to give them a greater understanding of Our point of view, and how we feel about it. Mothers often experience these things differently. They cannot bear to see the whole thing with the realistic view of what their children are actually doing by choosing the ways of the world. They say, “It’s only natural,” and in a way they’re right. They have to make those experiences; it’s in their nature to have to do so. (IV:17) Experiencing the fruits and results and consequences of evil is necessary for mankind, in order to learn their lesson and acquire wisdom, too. (IV:20)

The assurance of unconditional love: Once received and experienced, anything is possible. (IV:25) Experience will be the best teacher. After all, isn’t that what life is all about, and what you really learn the gist of life’s lessons from? Not from lectures or from books, sermons or talks, but from experience. That is the language that really writes those lessons of life deep into your heart. (IV:43) The reason I’m allowing you to go through hurtful experiences is not only for you to put yourself into My shoes and become a partaker of My sufferings, but for you to learn to love as unconditionally as I do. (IV:45) The truly experienced know that it is not in the energy of the flesh that the race is won, and they rely more fully on My Spirit to carry them through the finish line. It will turn out to be those who have learned from experience that really pull the threads and exert the true power that wins… (IV:55) One way folks are going to learn better is by making the painful experience of where it’s not at. (IV:62) Everything you learn and experience right now, you will retain fully one day, even though you may not do so right now. It is not going to be wasted. That doesn’t mean you should just passively let yourself go, either, without making any efforts whatsoever to retain any of the information and experience you’re gaining, but it just means that you shouldn’t worry about any of it being wasted on you or getting lost due to your incapacity to remember it all right now. (IV:68) Sometimes all that keeps you going is the fact that I put you there, and if I said it’s going to work and it’s going to be worth it, then you’re just going to have to believe it, since your experience has taught you that I never lie, and what I tell you has always turned out to be the truth. (IV:92) Just as with your children, whom you have to let go and follow their own inclinations up until a certain point, even if it’s in a direction that you know is less than the best option, I also have to let you go to find out for yourself where it’s at, or where it’s not at. The devil’s “generosity” is a different kind than Mine, and I need you to experience and learn all these things in order to appreciate Whom you’re serving, and thus put your whole heart into your service for Me. (IV:112) It takes wisdom not to fall into the trap of carnal temptations, and usually that wisdom is only acquired by the experience where that sort of temptation will lead. The more you have experienced the refining fires of My chastisements, the closer to the Real Thing your life will be, and the more of Me it will resemble. (IV:119) People have got to first find their Maker, Who will reveal to them what is their purpose and who they are and precisely what they are there for. Without that experience their lives can be so empty. (IV:120) You find out by experience that it pays to stick to those boundaries you tried to ignore and pass, thus leading you to trespass. (IV:124) You’ve got to experience Heaven, and be a living testimony to that experience. (IV:127) I have a special love for those who really and desperately need Me. Sure, their minds may tell them – like everyone else – that they can make it on their own, too; that they are strong enough, etc., but reality keeps knocking on their window, and experience continues to teach them that they simply don’t have the strength to make it through this world on their own, nor without the Help from Above from Someone that won’t let them down. (IV:136) If you base your wisdom purely and exclusively on the knowledge and experience you’ve acquired, without any openness to learn new things and adapt to new situations, you might wind up looking pretty silly and make a mess of things. Whereas if you put on a student’s attitude, ready to learn something new from the situation you encounter, then you can be ready for new lessons, and thus an expansion of your previous scope, and thus the scope of your wisdom and experience will grow. (IV:143) See each crisis as an opportunity to experience more of My fullness and of My capacity to be all you ever need! (IV:156) Sometimes My answer, My message I try to convey to you, lies in the silence, in the experience, in whatever it is you’re having to pass through. I cannot save you from a necessary experience that you need to grow and to make progress. (IV:172) I usually like for My followers to learn from their own experiences. I allow every type of experience just at the point in time when I think you’re ready for it.

I always let you experience what you need to in order to learn the lessons to learn about this world and all it promises and where it’s really at. Experience is a better teacher than anything I could tell you in advance. You have to find out for yourself. (IV:174) “The wages of sin is death,” and it takes making that experience, if necessary, over and over again, until someone can fully appreciate the gift of My grace and of the kind of life I give. If you think you can walk the spiritual path in your own strength, the repeated experience of failing will prove to you otherwise. (IV:177) There’s no teacher like experience. (IV:180) It’s not always good to accept every temptation and commodity that comes your way, as experience will tell you. Sometimes it’s wisest to be able to say, “No, thank you!” The flesh thinks itself capable of handling and resisting the temptation, but experience and reality will often paint a different picture. (IV:182) In the Spirit World We won’t discriminate you because of your age, because everyone Here knows that age is pretty much irrelevant, or rather, how much of an advantage it can be to have greater experience. (IV:185) If you will overcome the doubts and finally yield and trust and commit your life and your all into My hands, you also will experience a glorious and miraculous resurrection like I did. I’m not forcing anybody to stick close to Me against their will. But experience has taught you that anything else simply won’t satisfy in the long run. I reckon it’s you who would like to experience some tangible and visible progress in your life that would ensure a more permanent state of blessing. (IV:187) You haven’t even seen or experienced a fraction of My Love yet, compared to all that you will yet experience. (IV:192) Life as I had originally intended it to be, you will experience again when you will come Home to Me. Life as it is also has a purpose and is meant to be a school, a learning experience you’re meant to go through, and not supposed to skip or miss out on. (IV:199) The faulty and flawed leadership of the world will serve to help people appreciate the Real Thing when they will finally see It, and experience truly righteous and just governance in My Kingdom. Even experiencing where your own tyranny can lead will teach you where it’s not at, and how much better it is to subject yourself to the leadership of My Spirit. (IV:204) You live and learn by experience, finding out just what happens if certain things occur. (IV:210) In order for your faith to endure any storm (and lo, the storm is coming), I allow you to be tested and to pass through experiences that will assure you over and over again of the reasons that lead you to conclude that you can trust Me, even if temporarily it may not seem to be the case at times. (IV:212) Love, shown in situations when undeserved, can be helpful in turning things toward a better development than personally experienced. Remember the love, understanding, goodness and patience you did receive and experience from My hand and heart, personally, and then try to extend some of that love, tolerance and acceptance toward others that you have known from Me! Don’t treat them according to the harshness and lack of love you may have experienced at the hand of your fellow humans, but treat them according to the kindness, love and patience you have experienced from Me! (IV:240) Atheism and atheist thought is necessary in the process of ultimately exposing evil, and the futility of that school of thought and rebellion against Me, alienation from Me; the experience of a world without Me. (IV:248) The experiences of where self-rule and self-worship lead is what will convince most folks in the long run that they might as well give Us a chance to give them a break from the disaster they’re inviting by thinking they can play god themselves. (IV:265)

Your salvation and eye-opener were the hard disappointments you experienced with the things this world had to offer for you. And maybe everyone has got to make these experiences for themselves… (IV:284) Some things are simply not easily learned by words and theoretical lessons that are given, but the best teacher remains to be experience, and going through experience obviously speaks louder and has a greater impact, with greater potential to evoke actual and genuine change, than any amount of words could ever give. (IV:315)

The troubled and painful times are not times of My absence. I’m there, just as close as I always am; it’s just that because of all that’s happening around you, it’s a little harder for you to perceive My Presence, and the enemy may tempt you to feel as if I had forsaken you and makes you doubt that I’m still around. But I am, and these experiences are of utmost importance for you to learn the supremacy of the significance of your dependence on Me, of your need to focus on Me regardless of circumstances, and by this experience you will learn to trust beyond a doubt that you can always rely on Me, no matter what. (IV:330) Loss is simply one of those attached lessons of life that everyone has got to deal with sooner or later, and better sooner than later… You’ll be able to comfort others with the comfort you are being comforted with yourself, but unless you’ve made the experience, there’s no way you could ever relate to them… (IV:335) You’re going to literally experience the truth of what I meant by “Without Me ye can do nothing.” (IV:381) Experiences will always lead you to the conclusion that I am the only solid Rock, the one true Constant in your life that you can rely on, and the best thing you can do to prepare yourself and spare you any shock and disappointment is to keep that in mind. (IV:389) Experience is serving to teach you that you must put your trust in Me to a greater extent. (IV:416) Life is full of options and surprises that never would have occurred to folks, which is the big difference between theory and actual experience… (IV:431) I let you see the advantages and disadvantages of different options and want you to grow stronger through your experiences. (IV:447) Life is an as-you-go learning experience, since the practice has proven to be a so much more effective teacher than mere theory. I like to teach you most of all by the things that you experience, and basically, that’s what life is all about, not just theoretical head stuffing. When you experience the disappointment of someone turning out to have been a fake, it strengthens your desire to make sure you are the Real Thing yourself. You wouldn’t want to be a fake like them. (IV:458) The sort of knowledge you acquire by experience is a lot more effective, it works more in you, and half the fun of experience is that you don’t know everything beforehand… (IV:466) Sometimes I allow you to experience that sadness because you did not pray, and some of the sad things others experience might be happening because you failed to do that which you can do, and can always do, which is pray. (IV:482) It is good to learn from what you experience in life. (IV:490) The experience of loss evokes processes that make richer and more “valuable” somehow. (IV:499) You have to find out which is and which isn’t the right way from experience. (IV:506) As much as I leave you free choice: the main purpose of that freedom is for you to find out by experience that there is really no better choice you can make than deciding to put your will on My side. (IV:514) As hard as experiences might be, just like death itself, they are precious in My sight, because they drive home to you the futility of this world in ways that only they can… (IV:519) I need folks who cannot just preach in theory, but prove by their experience that it really works and they have tried and proven it themselves by finding Me to be a sure and certain Help in times of crisis! (IV:525) Most people are at least sometimes inclined to think that they’d be doing a better job at playing God than the Father is, but it’s experience – the experience of actually having children of their own – that teaches them that it may not be as easy as they thought to raise children, and the experience of making a mess of the situations you’re in charge of, that you may not be the best boss in the world, after all, either… (IV:528) I must allow you to reap the consequences of your actions to some extent. You’ve got to find out by your own experience what sort of thing is genuinely helpful, and which are not. (11:8) As you can tell from your own experiences: less than wholehearted often fails to inspire and invoke enthusiasm… (11:28) You can only be like Me in this world by spending time with Me to learn of Me, experience what I’m really like and become like that yourself… (11:33)

Getting a taste of the yoke of the System, you've got to remember that it is My yoke I want you to take upon you! Sometimes the reason why I do lead My followers to get a taste of their yoke, is for them to experience and know the difference between the liberty I give and the bondage and yoke of the System. (11:41) I’m drilling you to learn by your own experience and from your mistakes; what happens when you forget to do this or neglect to do that, etc. (11:43) Life itself allows people to find out by their own experience which paths truly render happiness, and which don't... (11:48) You know by experience that you’ve fared well thus far, to be listening to My voice. Granted, sometimes I may lead you down a path that will test your faith and make you wonder, “Are You kidding, Lord? Are You for real? This doesn’t seem to make any sense at all…” And everybody will nod their head vehemently and enthusiastically in agreement and say, “See, we’ve told you all along, you couldn’t trust this Guy! Look what road He’s leading you down!” But you know My response to that: Wait and see! (11:49) You’ve experienced and found out that there are bound to crop up problems, and you’re going to wish for My Presence and Help in order to deal with them when they happen, and the only way you can ensure that is by staying close to Me. (11:50) Who do you regard as your ultimate teacher? Your personal experiences or Me? Or, what am I really trying to teach you through your experiences? Wasn’t that what faith is all about? Seeing more than the immediately visible? Looking further than what your eyes can make out, and even that which experience teaches you? Or is there a truth that is deeper and goes further than all that experience could possibly teach you? Something that tells you that things may seem like this, but they’re really another way? – Well, that’s the voice of faith. The voice of faith is the difference between what experience teaches you – or at least your carnal mind makes of it - and that which I’m really trying to teach you by all this. (11:64) Life is what you choose and strive to make it each day: either a positive experience you can rejoice in, or a negative one you need to suffer through. (11:66) Nothing draws you closer to Me than the experience of your own insufficiency. (11:69) Sometimes a man has got to do what he’s got to do regardless of potential failure and the risks involved. It’s the experience and the lesson in it that counts, and if you didn’t do it, you may stay wondering for the rest of your life, “What if I had?” If the means are there, you can do it, and it will be worth the experience, but you should not blame Me or anyone if it doesn’t work out the way you want… (11:83) If you could face each day and all its moments with the assurance that this is exactly what you’re supposed to experience right now, instead of with an attitude of, “What am I doing here?” you’d find more grace in you to embrace your lot with a smile. (11:115) Do you think that’s all you deserve? – Just pleasant things to go through and experience? If that would be so, why would I permit and allow those unpleasant experiences happening to you? (15:169) Gather some wisdom through life’s experiences, concerning what reaps good results, and what doesn’t! (15:246) If it’s already the roughest times you’ve experienced, let it be a preparation for you for what’s expecting the world! (2016:1) Better to be prepared for rough times coming than having to experience them in shock! (2016:23) If it’s rough times, take the chance to apply for My Help, and experience the difference it’ll make! You did experience already the positive differences prayer was able to make on some days. (2016:31) Life’s a lesson on what not to do, how not to behave and act, if you want to do it the proper way – Our way. It includes the experience of learning about the mistakes one can make by being governed mainly by selfish intentions, being concerned about one’s own welfare, instead of that of others. One of the ways of learning how to do it is to experience first how not to. (2016:57) In order not to get tripped off on the bad, some experience seems necessary to prevent it. (16:58) My death was to prevent you from suffering hereafter, if you receive Me. But for some of your sins, faults and mistakes you have to go through some experiences yourselves down there that you’ll be able to learn from… how to do it better. (2016:61) Trust and believe in My Promises to help you through and protect you, even if you’ve had an experience that made you doubt that! (2016:64)

Sometimes it’s the end that will tell the whole depth of a story, and makes apparent temporal curses turn out to have been blessings after all, even if that blessing will just turn out through the wisdom, experience and strength you’ve gained through it all. (2016:70) Sometimes it takes certain experiences in order to learn the principal lessons of life, of which the top one is to love, both, your Creator, and your fellowmen. That’s why I even told My followers to love their enemies. Take whatever comes… trusting Me that it’ll be just the right experience for whatever part of the lessons of life I consider you still have to go through! (2016:76) Let Me help you make it through that hell on Earth! Tough, compared to that bit of Heaven on Earth you experienced beforehand… but making it through either Heaven or hell on Earth is a part of what faith is supposed to enable you to… that faith that Heaven’s going to win that battle in the end! (2016:97)

If the circumstances aren’t rosy, see it as a preparatory lesson and experience for the darker times to come, to teach you how to handle difficult times! (2016:100) When circumstances will have become negative enough to affect others, and they still see you cheerful after your time with Me, they might finally get interested in experiencing that, too. (16:107) It takes that history of experience of what evil can do to make most folks choose the good… including the repercussions of having chosen evil first. (16:112) Wrong decisions and acts make folks pay their price through the following experiences and repercussions. Experience is still one of the best teachers. Better than any words and theories… even the Words of your Lord and Creator, when they’re not being treasured as they should be. (16:113) Heaven on Earth can be experienced through offering Heaven to others. (2016:121) I want My sheep to learn that I am their Shepherd, and to gain enough experience to teach them what good it is to look at other people and folks like them as their leaders. The fewest of them resist the temptation to abuse their position of leadership… With all you’ve experienced through earthly leaders, you’ve definitely come to the conclusion that it’s safer to put your trust in Me instead. The experience of failing human leadership is a way that points in the right direction as to whom one can truly trust without any doubts. (2016:131) Remember that the physical weakness you experience is supposed to give you greater spiritual Strength, and make you more dependent on Me and your Help from Above! I turn the bad experiences into something good for you. (16:142) Allowing circumstances to drag you down, just shows that your state of faith isn’t exactly where it’s supposed to be. Look beyond them and rise above them! I know, it’s an act of faith… but also experience that will help you strengthen your faith by putting it into action. (16:144) A weakening process of carnal abilities: A good thing that will turn out to be one in spite of coming out of evil incidents and experience. (16:153) The times are getting darker by the hour. And how you’re going to make it through them depends on your reliance and dependence on Me… not the experience of things working out the way they used to! (2016:159) Leaving the right of free choice out there from the beginning shows Our liberal attitude, in comparison to the enemy’s, who will seek to have each on executed who won’t receive his mark… An incident and experience that ought to teach mankind which is the better force to rule over them – his or Ours. (2016:163) Keeping on the sunny side in the spirit when the world around you’s in darkness is pretty much a miraculous act, which is basically why I’m preparing you for dependence on miracles. And in order to get them and experience them, you’ve got to ask and pray for them! (2016:164) Let your experience raise your confidence in the Power of good overcoming and rising above that of evil! (2016:170) The times coming will be a lot harder and tougher than what you’ve already experienced and gone through. (2016:175) Another plus about heavenly Help: experiencing It makes you feel better! It’s experiences through seemingly hopeless situations that raise your trust and confidence in Us to help and see you through.

Experiencing Our Help and protection raises your faith that We might manage to help you make it through the rough times to come. So, one advantage of experiencing Our Help to make it through rough and potentially dangerous events: raising your faith in and lifting your worries about the capacities of making it through the times to come. So, good to know and experience that you’re not all alone down there having to make it, isn’t it? Experiencing your heavenly Help through apparent and initial disadvantages is one of the main factors of circumstances and incidents that draw you closer to Me, and one of the main reasons We allow them to happen. (2016:178) Don’t be too shocked by circumstances passing the level of what you’re experienced in being able to handle! Be ready to deal with the fact that your faith might still have to grow an awful lot to be able to confront what the enemy not just might, but will be up to! Expect to see things you’ve never seen and experienced before; which is why I keep reminding you not to set your faith on the things you can see with your physical eyes, but set it Up Here through the spiritual glimpse, vision and focus at the carnally unseen! (2016:179) In order to be able to appreciate Heaven, most folks need to experience and get a bit of a taste of hell on Earth first! (2016:190)

If life down there is exhausting, that’s one experience and minus you won’t have to put up with Here. (2016:197) Experiencing mercy on one’s own behalf should also extent the level of it in them toward others. The more mercy received and experienced, the more to give and show for others. (2016:198) Being able to put up with others’ faults is something that comes up through the experience that your own can be even worse. (2016:201) See “doing good” as a way to do things differently for a change! At least it will raise your level of experiences and that of change, which I’ve always promoted as something valuable and positive. (2016:203) Getting used to tougher times equals experiencing them; and, unfortunately, no way around them. (17:8) The good and easy times you’ve experienced in a world largely governed by our enemy’s forces of evil are over, with him approaching his ultimate rulership as Antichrist not too long from now. (17:13) An atheist in many aspects a greater saint than just about any believers you remember: A lesson and experience that should give you hope for the salvation of unbelievers. (17:18) If laziness has become a long-lasting weakness, and you’re getting almost too tired and weak to fight it, all you’ve got to offer the School of Life is a lesson of unpleasant experiences. It’s definitely an experience when there’s nothing around you to do. It should get you looking at the possibilities, options and for open doors, not just resign to fate as a “useless” condition, situation or circumstance! Learning to appreciate folks that aren’t “perfect” might be one of the major challenges for someone with a craving for perfection. And having to deal with the fact that he’s not prefect, either, should make that lesson and experience a little easier to handle. (17:25) New situations require something different than leaning on one’s own abilities, habits and experience. Dealing with the new, and learning how to do that is one of the advantages of getting or being used to changes. (17:27) In former times you’ve made it to a large percentage on your own, physical abilities; but by letting you experience a low passage of that former state, I’m in the process of teaching you to utterly lean on Me and Heaven’s Help without which you wouldn’t and won’t make it through what’s coming up ahead. (17:30) Miracles are the factors that create faith in people more than the Word, since it’s just easier for folks to believe in what they can see and experience. (17:34) Folks have got to get to the point of learning the difference between good and evil through experience. (17:46) It may be tough for you to figure out what I'm trying to teach you through your experiences, and it just takes a bit of trust in that fact that I know what I'm doing and allowing, even if it presently it doesn't make much - if any - sense to you. (17:49) Part of the lessons of life: the experience what the motion – along with its notions – the enemy has led the world to fall into the results of. (17:51) That's what experience will teach: having to go through the results and consequences of the choices made. (17:58) How long can you be open to the new, the unknown, that which you haven’t experienced yet is another interesting question, regarding what’s coming up ahead.

There’s just a lot to learn to put up with in a world that you’re living in. Not feeling at home down there, and causing the experience to help you appreciate what’s coming thereafter the way you should… well, that’s part of the sense of the experience of life you’re going through down there. (17:65) Your own mind does have its influence, and a lot of what you do, write and say is based on your personal experience. That this includes blunders and mistakes, you might say is natural. (17:76) It’s all not just a pleasant experience you’re having to go through, just as is wasn’t for Me when they all started screaming “crucify Him!” But at least those types of incidents make it obvious why judgment is eventually needed. (17:77) Having to withstand attacks you’re experiencing from your enemy still at the spiritual side of things, will change when his spiritual kingdom will jolt into the physical realm. Another big difference of circumstances expecting the Earth! (17:81) Even We Up Here do learn different things from experience. When someone’s pretty much all-knowing, and still open for new input from experiences, would that be a pro or con, a positive or negative quality according to your opinion? (17:85) In every true believer’s and follower’s life there needs to come that stretch… that lesson and experience not to make it in their own strength, but to lean and depend on Mine, the heavenly Strength and anointing. (17:86) Some folks will never learn from theory, and will only learn from the actual experience, and learn how to deal with troubled times only when they hit. (17:88) Changes are one of the main things to get used to! - Not what you’ve already been able to learn from experience. It’s time to get ready for new experiences - getting ready for changes. (17:90) When the prayer factor turns up a bit too late, it usually results in experiences that will also draw you closer to Me, but they’re not as cheerful ones as they could be, such as thankfulness for protection and blessings, due to previous prayers for those factors. Realizing just how important prayer is, is one of the major lessons of life… from experiences that could have been avoided by using that Power of God to prevent them, and enjoy better ones - through prayer. (17:96) Going by what you see and experience all around you just won’t give you a chance to make it through it all that’s coming down there. Accordingly, don’t let your faith be influenced by what you see and experience around you in the physical, but point your entire confidence in the unseen Factor Up Here: your King, your Home and your heavenly helpers! (17:98) Advantages you learn to appreciate after experiencing disadvantages. Appreciating things the way they come and are, well, that’s one thing to learn from the experiences of life. Knowing from experience where one wrong choice and decision can lead should be a No.1 lesson of life… but one far from everybody learning. Circumstances bring about the need and incentive for positive changes and improvement… one of the ultimate destinations of world history through learning from experience where it’s not at, and what should be handled and done in a different, better way. Improvement comes about through the experiences of the necessity for it through the unpleasant factors. Take and accept whatever you see, feel and experience around you the best you can! (17:101) Experience is part of the big School of Life, so just allow Me to enrich your experiences! (17:103) Experiences have a reason and purpose, even if a bit dark. - But what can you expect from a life in a world temporarily taken over by the king of darkness? (17:107) You’re experiencing that others are having even harder fates to deal with. So, remember thankfulness! - That you’re not having it quite as hard as some others around you! (17:110) Learn from experience about the different results of staying on My way, or not and your own instead, all depending on your choices! (17:115) To make it even in spite of lack of experience… See it as an extra challenge from Above to widen your horizon and aspects! (17:118)

Faith in something you’ve got to believe in even if you haven’t seen it yet, is not as popular as the “knowledge” according to physical and carnal experiences… But it’s the Stuff I rely on to work through. (17:119) With the risks and dangers higher than ever before, experience should have cured you from the wrong attitude to take My protection for granted. (17:128)

Prayer! If that’s one of a believer’s main tasks, how can you neglect it, having experienced trouble that might have been prevented through it? (17:137) Life had come from Us… and yet they betrayed Me and took Mine from Me. So, don’t be too shocked if you have to participate in that experience! (17:140) Remember the rewards for accepting the challenge of the life of faith: a blessed eternity thereafter with a Crown of Life! And from a bit of experience of a life of faith, you can tell that those can’t just be empty promises. (17:143) You ought to have learned from experience to make the better choice regarding who it pays off to listen to, seeing the effect of the enemy’s influence all around you, and knowing from experience that that’s definitely not the better one, nor the one you should attend and listen to! If you think it’s just as bad as it can get right now, I’m afraid you’ll experience much greater and worse manifestation of his forces in the dark times to come. So, the sooner you learn to resist the influences of his power in the world, the better! (17:145)

…Forsaking All That’s why forsaking all is so important: it leaves you with nothing but Me, and when I’m all you’ve got, then you’re really free to just let Me use you and do it through you! (I:157) Forsaking all – everyday! – That’s one of the slogans of a true disciple to keep in mind if you want to start off each day clean slated in order to get the most you can do out of it. Forsaking all in order to put Me first, that’s the goal. (I:250) Though you may have to forsake your heart's desires for My sake, and for My work's sake for a time of "sowing in tears," "joy cometh in the morning", and there will be a day of great rejoicing when you will reap, if ye faint not, and when you will see that it has been worth it all. Though now you may be tempted to see Me as cruel to give you something and then ask you to return it and give it back to Me, to give it up for Me, one day you'll see that this test of your first love was utterly necessary. (I:523) It's only when you're driven to the end of yourself that you're willing to give up everything in order to gain the new, the unknown, that which I have to offer. (II:68) You have to forsake all and die to your old man every day. Receiving My help in this daily, through My instructions of what it is I want you to forsake and what area I want you to yield more and progress in, is vital. (II:132) I want you to be able to truly forsake all at a moment's notice, if need be. Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose, and you can only be truly free when all the things you stand to lose truly mean nothing to you, so that you can just forsake them and let go of them at a moment's notice. (II:254) It's forsaking all, all over again, and letting go. Letting go of all your ambitions, selfish desires and motivations... anything that would stop or hinder you from giving and surrendering all to Me. (II:423) Your desires for carnal and physical things had to go and be let go of, first, before there was room, a place and space in you for Me to fill, that's what letting go and forsaking all is all about and what it means and amounts to. (II:590) In forsaking all, you will find that I will give you My all. (III:53) Keep forsaking all! Keep forsaking what needs to be let go of and keep forging ahead in a new direction, making progress and conquering new territories! Sometimes, in order to make it easy for My followers to begin their path for Me, I make it sound simple, like, “Come, follow Me!” But only after a while are they ready to hear some more of the details and all that it entails to follow Me: taking up their cross, forsaking all they have and becoming an enemy to this world, because all they really care about is Me and My Cause. (IV:6)

To what extent are you really forsaking all each day? (IV:92) My path is just going to lead in the opposite direction of where most want to go, which is up the ladder of success toward fame and fortune, when Mine is the road of forsaking all, denying yourself and taking up your cross… (IV:159) Luke 14:33 is still a requirement for My disciples that hasn’t changed. (IV:218) Forsaking all is just what it means and what it’s talking about: a-l-l. Sooner or later everyone is going to have to let it all go, even if it’s tough, and the sooner and the earlier you learn that, the better. It’s not something you should see as a bad thing, but as a door that is going to take you to better, greater things. (IV:308) I made it a requirement for My disciples to forsake all and drag as few personal possessions around through life as possible, since those whose lives are already full have less space left for Me to fill it. (IV:477) Maybe there’s more to the truth of forsaking all and why that is necessary to be My disciple than meets the eye… Maybe you haven’t yet begun to experience the wonder-working magic of forsaking all… the magic and miracles in your life that occur when you really trust Me for your happiness, more than any other things you could possibly make that dependent on… The forsaking all factor is one of the principal requirements for true discipleship today just as much as ever. (11:15) There is such a thing as loss, and it has to be dealt with. Perhaps one of the reasons why I instituted forsaking all as a basic requirement for discipleship was to spare them the regret over any losses they were yet to encounter in their lives, even the very loss of their lives, since that’s what often was required of early believers, who often died as martyrs… (11:84) You never lose by giving up anything for Me. (2012:7) In the long run you'll only benefit from your readiness to let go and forsake what you held dear. (2012:11) If you had to forsake what you so dearly loved, can’t you fully embrace the new thing, the new opportunity I’ve given you? (2012:127)

Truly outstanding people are remembered and noticed for their ability and quality to give up something of their own for the sake of others, which is basically what I said in that verse about “Greater love hath no man…” (Jn.15:13). (2012:141) You have to be willing to let go of the things that mess up your life. I’m willing to give you a hand and My support by giving you the strength you need. But when I don’t, then you might have to consider that maybe it’s My will for you to let go of some of that stuff and it’s time to get rid of some of it and forsake it. The natural human inclination is to cling, to hang on to things, but I’ll usually encourage folks to let go, as you can tell from My example with My disciples. (2012:151) You have to be willing to let go of the things that keep you too occupied for Me. That’s basically what forsaking all was and is all about: letting go of the things that keep you apart from Me and too busy for Me and My will for you. (2013:64) The reason it says, “Seekest thou great things for thyself? – Seek them not!” (Jer.45:5) is that most people are usually better off without “greater things for themselves.” That’s also what forsaking all is all about. (2013:122)

…Fun, Pleasure, Entertain- & Enjoyment Just be you, and enjoy it! There's nothing wrong with it. Enjoy it and help others to do the same! The serious side of life is important, too, but "a just weight" - a proper balance - is My delight. The more you enjoy yourself, the more people will be able to enjoy your company, the more enjoyable you'll be, and thus you'll help them enjoy themselves, and their own lives more, too, as long as you "enjoy yourself" in My Spirit and in the way I am teaching and leading you. (II:413) You don't have to cheat yourself out of enjoying yourself. To enjoy yourself means precisely what it says: you can enjoy just being yourself, you can enjoy the body I've given you, the spirit I've given you, the life I've given you, it's nothing to be ashamed of or to constantly deny or to beat down. (II:555)

The sitcom mentality has seeped in so deeply into people that they think something is wrong if there's no fun and no jest involved. Fun is not the A and O, the all-in-all. It's important and it has its place, but it's not supposed to be your god. (III:57) You'll find out that there's no fun, no satisfaction, if I'm not in it, if you didn't include Me and didn't take Me with you. I may let you get away with it for a little while and allow you to experience a little fun and diversion on your own, until sooner or later you'll realize that there's no fun, no true pleasure at all without the true Source of all godly pleasure. (III:152) I don't mind you having fun, but I do mind you making a god out of it... (III:239) Satan's really a dictator at heart, and all his "goodie-goodie" show that he's pulling off right now, of being a promoter of democracy and "let the kids have some fun," is just that: pure show. As soon as they're all in the trap, he's going to pull the plug, and the fun will be over, once and for all. It's not going to be called the "Great Tribulation" for nothing: the fun will be over, period. (III:309) Ask yourself, "What am I really here for? Just to enjoy the ride? Or is there a greater purpose for my being here?" (III:355) Sometimes a sense of humor can help you take yourself less seriously. That's why it's said that the greatest requirement for a missionary is a sense of humor. Approaching strangers in a humorous sort of way takes the seriousness out of the issue, which sometimes scares people away. (III:360) You're supposed to enjoy life so that you can advertise the Source of joy you've found. (III:363) It’s not a time anymore for entertainment and leisure. It’s a call to arms. This generation, brought up into believing that the meaning of life is to have as much fun as possible, is going to have a hard awakening, soon, to the seriousness of the true core of the sense of life, which has been hidden from them, and blessed will be those with a beacon of light and pillar of truth to hold on to and to guide them in the right direction… in My direction. (III:387) The search and quest for pleasure and satisfaction just has to leave you high and dry at some point, because it’s destined and programmed to do just that. It’s not the way to happiness. (III:414) It’s not like I don’t want you to have fun in your work. Forget about whether you’re going to be a winner or a loser for some time, and just enjoy the fun of it! Once you get the hang of the fun of it, you start becoming good at it, and that’s when you start becoming good at life itself. You’ve got to enjoy the thing you do and have a glory in it, and not just dread it or think about whether you’re going to be the winner and take away the trophy or not… (III:435) I want you to enjoy life and enjoy your service for Me and what you’re doing for Me: I want you to do what you enjoy! Merely going through a humdrum of performing duties you don’t particularly enjoy isn’t going to enhance your quality of life, thus your health, your happiness, and thus also not your sample and testimony for Me, which equals your efficiency for Me. So I might as well let you do what you enjoy! (III:448) Learning to communicate with Me is going to be so extremely vital and expedient for your survival in the near future, that I can’t let up on you and let you enjoy a carefree life. (III:469) Trust Me that there’s something better awaiting you at the end of this life that’s going to make up for any lack of fun and enjoyment you had in this one, and that there are other things way more urgent that have priority over just “having fun” right now. The world is simply too evil to just live in it with the purpose of having fun. Soon there will simply be more important, urgent and pressing matters on your mind than pleasure, and the same will apply to many others for whom right now, pleasure is a priority. (III:500) I never said, “Come on, boys and girls, let’s try to have as much fun as we all possibly can!” That was never My message. I can have fun, and I don’t mind you having it, but it has never been My major prerogative. (III:543) Everything can be loads of fun if you just change your attitude about it! (III:570) By offering entertainment and amusement you just lead them “away from thinking” again, contributing to the entertainment overload that already exists. If there’s one thing the world doesn’t need, it’s more entertainment and more distraction from the essential things that they usually ignore. (IV:1) I truly need you to invest your efforts in the spreading of the truth, and not in merely entertaining people. (IV:46) Don’t stare at the empty half of the glass, or the hole in the donut, but at what’s there to enjoy! Reaping may sound a lot more like fun than sowing, I know. But the work has got to come before pleasure. (IV:114) There are more important, more urgent matters than having fun.

Time is short, and in order to get the job done, sacrifices have to be made sometimes, and you cannot always indulge and yield to every little opportunity of pleasure that presents itself. It takes some effort to shift your focus away from that “fun-mentality,” where pleasure and enjoyment are your primary incentive. (IV:126) The only way you’re going to be full of the Holy Spirit is by remembering that you are there to win their souls, and not just to tickle their ears. (IV:135) There is greater satisfaction for you to be had than just seeking pleasure for yourself. Even if you’re not to experience the Tribulation yourself, you’ll be grateful for every moment you invest in the eternal instead of wasting time on trivial, earthly matters and personal entertainment. There is a time for everything, and I don’t mind your times of fun, but I’m trying to reduce the preeminent position that fun and diversion are having in your life to one of lesser importance, and establish a better one for Me and My affairs in your mindset of priorities. (IV:147) Too much fun makes you feel “at peace” in this world, when there is no peace for My warriors in this world and age. (IV:151) Focus on, and dedicate yourself wholeheartedly to My Cause without any distraction, without the stress of having to please and entertain people! (IV:153) This world’s pursuits of enjoyment and pleasure are not really where true happiness is found. (IV:180) What do you think your attitude should be when you’re going through a lean stretch? Shouldn’t you be rejoicing and enjoying life just the same as when you’re going through the good times? (IV:187) Refrain from feeding yourself questionable input simply for the sake of consumption or entertainment, otherwise you’ll be too full for My input, and accordingly, your faith, your level of inspiration, and thus, whatever you have to give to others, will suffer from it! (IV:277) Everybody seems to have party time while you are suffering, and you feel left out and like that’s not fair. But imagine that a big calamity is going to put a drastic stop to all their partying soon. Would you rather be one of the shocked and surprised participants in the party, or would you rather be prepared for what is happening? Perhaps your place really isn’t there, at the party with them, but with Me, as one of My aids to help them when their party goes bust. Maybe there’s something more important going on and to be done than to worry how on Earth you’re going to be able to join the party! (IV:364) It’s good to prepare for the times of trouble, and not get tripped off on the rut of seeking to have fun. Besides… wasn’t there enough fun throughout the previous decades? But... sorry: the days of fun are unfortunately over and have to be swapped into serious times of preparation for the roughest times to come! Besides… as long as there’s only fun that’s being looked and craved for, you can see in kids that it doesn’t exactly make the best out of them… Some rough times make the better ones of people… more so than the purely easy and largely fun times. (16:23) Chasing your own pleasures is what everyone else does in the commercial world, and it cannot be rewarded. (16:77) Teaching is something that comes in more handy than entertainment for My followers. (16:87) To help others to make it through the darkest times coming, I’m afraid will take getting them off their addictions to having fun all the time! Life isn’t a piece of cake anymore, nor a lot of fun, but something to learn to cope with! (16:91) Faith, hope, love, these three, seem to be a lot worthier ones to invest your time and energy in than current pleasure, fun and easy living, don’t you think? (16:102) Better stay on guard, even if that urge for vacation time’s still there… I’ve been admonishing you to get out of that groove and mindset! To realize how tough it can be to have kids addicted to having fun should make you realize what it makes the Father feel like. Especially when He knows that fun-time down there will be over soon, and it would be much better to prepare for what’s to come. (16:104) Let Me and My daily input be your source of fun, or at least some positive sentiments, and eventually you might transfer that gift to others, when circumstances will have become negative enough to affect them, too… and if they still see you cheerful after your time with Me, they might finally get interested in experiencing that, too; and not make it dependent on fun activities throughout their days… (16:107)

See that desire for pleasant times alone as something of the flesh! (16:117) It’s tougher for those who’ve had a fairly pleasant life to learn to deal with troubles. My disciples’ job: not to make the best and most enjoyable parts possible out of their earthly lives, but make sure to bring as many along to Heaven as they can. (16:129) Think about the job that’s there for you, and don’t let the enemy get you off the track with desires for pleasure and enjoyment! Carnal desires and pleasures are not necessarily a positive! Being a follower of Mine definitely requires the readiness to be prepared for hard times, not just seek enjoyment, as quite a few people these days do. (2016:154) To get ready for the times of Satan’s personal rulership down there, I can’t just let you keep going in a rut of pleasure, entertainment and easy times. Sorry to tell you, but the fun times are over, and needing something – like factors to enable your survival – will require uttering some prayers for it, giving Us the glory in your praises for it, and thanking us for the Help from Above, instead of leaning on your own abilities. (16:161) I’m not allowing you to enjoy life as usual, as you have been enjoying it for previous years, because the times are drastically changing, and you absolutely have to get ready for those drastic changes by getting and keeping as close to Me and in an as permanent manner as possible, because there won’t be any other way to make it. (16:168) There’s the factor whether you just want to passively enjoy good and easy times, or put some action into being a positive influence to those around you. (16:172) You’ve just got to get used to that fact that the times of enjoyment have come to an end, and the part of making it through the conditions in spite of them is setting in! (16:174) It all may not be as enjoyable as things used to be for you, but don’t just see yourself as a victim of that condition, but be aware of the fact that “less enjoyable” is a soft term and description of what’s expecting the world not too far from now! (16:175)

Get out of the fun-seeking groove, and do all you can to get into preparation-mode for what’s coming… because what’s coming ain’t gonna be a lot of fun, and it’ll be something folks will have to live and learn to deal with, even if they may not feel like it at all! (16:184) Get used to the fact that the entertainment phase will be over soon! (16:191) Those just constantly seeking fun and entertainment will have a shock coming at them in their nearby future… and any preparation for difficult and hard times will finally be appreciated and understood. Even if folks getting prepared for rough times ahead may seem weird to those pleasure, amusement and entertainment junkies around them, the times will come when it will be clear that the gear of preparation for it was the better way to take than just seeking the next opportunity for fun and entertainment. The times will come when the eyes of many will be opened wide, and a wide awakening from their “pleasure-addiction” will occur. (16:194) Seeking to enjoy every bit and stretch of life you can, doesn’t really keep you on My wavelength, the kind that suits to “Ye are not of this world (Jn.15:19).” Seeking to enjoy everything you possibly can in this world and life leads you to a groove of getting sucked in to it, instead of being a “dropout.” (17:11) The good and easy times you’ve experienced in a world largely governed by our enemy’s forces of evil are over, with him approaching his ultimate rulership as Antichrist not too long from now; and you just can’t expect life to be fun, a piece of cake or vacation time with the forces of evil approaching their ultimate rule over the planet, doing their best to brainwash the planet’s population to get them ready for it. (17:13) I’ve promised My Help and Strength to My followers who are ready to take the same course as Mine – not one of just pleasure, but also including some suffering! (17:55) It’s good to keep getting prepared for troubled times, and not just seek the enjoyment. Preparation times for troubled times aren’t just pure enjoyment times. So, if that enjoyment factor seems to be almost gone, don’t let it be a shock to you! That modern addiction to enjoyment isn’t exactly a positive. (17:95) Constantly seeking pleasure, fun and entertainment is not really a helpful groove to make it through what’s to come. It just might lead to acceptance of what the enemy has to offer, just as he always did. (17:102)

If life was constantly pleasant, it’s hard to assume that many folks would seek Me. The challenge is to learn to make it through rough days and times with My Help. So, don’t let it strike you as something unpleasant, but see the positive part in the preparation factor! (17:119) See My job as something more important in your life than your own enjoyment of it! That’s what’s putting Me first. (17:130)

…Goals & Destination If someone constantly seeks their way up to the sunny peaks in pursuit of selfish pleasure and "good times," they will inevitably land down on the rock bottom of an empty soul, because they're just missing the goal. (II:278) Your only desire for recognition should be for My recognition. (II:284) The whole picture will be perfectly clear when you come Home to Me, and this should give you another incentive to keep moving toward that Goal. Some things will remain in the shadow, as question marks, only to be fully answered Here, when you've reached the Goal, your Destination and the end of your journey. (II:310) I make you see the goal so that you will seek ways to get there. (II:328) The goal, as far as I'm concerned, is primarily for your faith, not necessarily for your income to increase! (II:331) It's not about accomplishment. It's about being a pioneer of the new, about being a herald of the unknown, the raw honesty and truth... your way of communicating. (II:345) Focus on the Real Thing, the real, long-term Goal, - the spiritual! (II:381) Come before Me with nothing else on your mind and heart but an openness and a space for Me to fill, nothing but your receptivity! Like this I can fill into you whatever I like, whatever I see and know you need most. Like this I can lead, guide and direct you totally in any direction I like, like a blind man, who simply has to trust fully in his guide, as opposed to someone who sees and has their own goals and destinations in mind. (II:435) What is your goal? Personal fame and wealth, which is what the world would consider success? Or the kind of wealth that lasts for all eternity, namely souls for My Kingdom? If you know you're doing your best to invest your time and energy toward the latter, then you don't have to worry about the former anymore. First of all, the first will have lost its meaning and appeal for you, and then I have promised to supply all your needs if you make My goals your ambition, instead of pursuing your own goals. (II:565) You must focus on a greater goal! Shoot far, for a horizon that is higher than the one you've been able to see thus far. The goal is not all these little things, which are in part, incomplete, they're only means to a much greater end, and you've got to constantly look at Me in order to be able to see that greater end, the goal. (II:592) If you have reached one goal, what is your next? (II:627) Focus more on that common Goal than any differences or difficulties in getting along! (III:23) It takes the "sting" out of what you're experiencing when you know it's for your good, like all things, and when you can see a purpose with a goal in it. The goal is greater understanding and wisdom. It's greater insight into the human heart, and simultaneously, into the heart of God, as you learn to see the full scope of different angles and possible viewpoints. (III:51) My true chosen ones won't settle for compromise with the evil one! For them there is only all-out war with him, and only one goal in sight: the Earth freed from his tyranny. (III:59) Keep your eye on the goal and your focus on the straight and narrow! (III:92) My goal and desire is for you to reverse the selfish cycle and do things differently. (III:96)

My Goal for you is not to have fear of man or sense of duty to constrain and spur you on, but the love for Me which grows out of your personal connection and relationship with Me, out of receiving My Love for you. You can become Me for those around you, and that's what life is all about. If they can see Me in you and see Me act through you, hear Me speak through you, and they can feel My Love coming through you, what else could you possibly want? What else could be the goal? What else could there possibly be to attain? (III:104) How much do you really accomplish? How close are you really to the goal I have set before you, that which you would call fulfilling your destiny and the purpose for which you were created and ordained? (III:135) The goal is not to remain in isolation, but Salvation in itself is a means of bringing the soul into the great union of all things, the Kingdom of Heaven. (III:228) The goal lies in the spiritual world, and that's where the true treasures of wisdom and insight and greater love are gleaned from. (III:250) I can teach you how to strive for the right goals, and using the right means to get there, namely My Power and Strength, not your own. If I can get you to do whatever it is you're going to be doing in My Strength, My Spirit, My Power and by My grace, then My goal in your life is accomplished. (III:311) Keep your focus on the goal, a new, more pleasant you, no matter what it takes to get there! (III:350) You've got to keep the right goals in mind, and run this race for the right incentives. (III:354) That’s the aim of sin: to keep you from loving; to "miss the goal" is sin, and the goal is love. (III:368) Make your goals a reality! (III:384) You’ve got to make sure that that’s your motivation and the thing that rules you, your goal: love! (III:394) If you realize that it’s really going to have to be Me doing the work miraculously through you, then My purpose has been established and accomplished, My personal goal in all this has been reached. My goal is to get you to let Me do it through you. (III:431) You’ve got to have a goal before your eyes to which you can point and tell others, “Come on, let’s go there!” (III:451) You can either drift through life passively, or you can have goals before you that you want to reach, things you want to learn and accomplish, fruits to take with you along your journey Home. (III:461) The goal wasn’t just for Me to establish a nice and neat little private relationship with you, but to have that relationship cause you to become mature enough to finally be able to work together properly with others as well. (III:471) While it wouldn’t make sense to put much effort into reaching the state of sinless perfection and saintliness in your own energy, you can trust in My grace and Salvation Power that eventually you will reach that goal. Many strive to serve Me with good intentions, but in their own energy, and thus often fall short of the real goal. (III:473) You should really strive hard for making total honesty and openness a goal. (III:488) What matters is that you keep your eyes on the goal, your focus on Me and keep headed for the Great Gathering. (III:490) “Home” is where you’re trying to get as the goal and aim of the game of life, and I’m waiting there at its end, just like I’ve been there from the beginning. (III:512) My goal and intent is that eventually people will learn from each other, from each other’s cultures, and that they will adapt and absorb from each other the best traits of each culture, and thus, eventually, create an ideal blend of “not-too-much” of any quality or another, but a perfectly balanced human kind. Laying down your lives for the brethren is what will truly get you to the goal, not just making sure you’ll get ahead yourself. (III:569)

Hope is your road to the goals of faith and love. (III:590) I’d rather lose an argument and win the soul. That’s the goal… Not tons of arguments in favor of your point, but enough love to win a soul, even if you never win an argument. (IV:19) Be mindful every day of the goal and your purpose: that you would want to preach and glorify Me, and spread My message, and not just preach yourself! (IV:29)

Keep your eyes, your vision and your focus on the goal, and on what’s to come, on Eternity! It will take the sting out of anything you might have to go through in this life, any lack of happiness and physical comfort, any amount of suffering and trials. (IV:60) The goal is to get them to trust in Me. (IV:73) Your ultimate destination is a much better Place than anything you’ve seen in the physical realm. (IV:90) Your purpose and goal is not to infuriate the devil’s people, but to win and reach My sheep. (IV:91) If you make it one of your goals to preserve the peace with those you live with, and keep your focus on that goal and make a conscious effort to strive towards it, you can attain that goal. Once you deem peace with your fellowmen and co-workers a goal worthy of pursuing and making some efforts to attain, then according to your faith be it unto you (Mt.9:29). Unity is a weapon that is not to be underestimated in your striving toward the ultimate goal of our Cause of world conquest through love… It takes an attitude and a focus steered away from your own, personal and individual desires and goals, and what you personally want to achieve as an individual, and replacing it with focus on the greater good and welfare of everyone. (IV:99) The only way anyone is going to make it successfully to the goal in the faith life is by keeping their eyes on Me. (IV:105) The army of spirit helpers that’s available to you have reached their goal and can tell and show you how you can best reach yours. (IV:127) I want you to make some kind of effort and shoot for the goal of being able to love unconditionally. My goal for you is that you learn to love unconditionally the way I do, but I also know you’re not going to make it there all in one day. One day you shall! I can promise you that. In the meantime, keep shooting for that goal, but don’t fall under condemnation when you don’t manage to love as perfectly as you should! (IV:162) Life isn’t entirely easy to figure out these days, and it’s definitely a challenge to make sense of it, and to keep your mind on the goal. (IV:184) Learning and growing and making progress is kind of the goal in life, isn’t it? You want to go on, make progress, not repeat the same old thing, not remain in the same old spot. (IV:193) The goal isn’t head-stuffing or just acquiring knowledge, accumulating facts to store in your brain. You’ll probably make better progress by just taking each day as a child, ready to explore something new, rather than as a professor who can barely make space for another bit of information in his already crammed head… (IV:235) The question you will want to answer with a definite “yes” some day when you’ll get Here will be, “Have I done all I possibly could?” And in order to make sure that this will be the case, I have to draw your attention – in sometimes painful ways, granted – to the areas in which you could improve and that are hindering you from reaching that goal. (IV:242) The goal is learning to become a blessing to someone, someone who’ll help others to carry their burdens, and not be the one who’s always being catered to. (IV:268) There are those who know I’m the Prize, the One really worth getting and going after, and they won’t stop short of that ultimate goal. (IV:293) My goal is that you become so gung ho over Me and this big advantage you have over others by having Me as that permanent Source of everything you need, that you will more gladly, more willingly, readily and openly share Me with them, offer Me to them and advertise Me to them, so that they can benefit from My Presence in their lives, too, the same way you would recommend a good film, book or piece of freeware. (IV:303) Love is the goal, and so that means fighting to eliminate your own hostility toward the type of people you may initially feel like not jibing with, and putting up with their quirks for love’s sake… It means a break from the usual tit for tat game the world is playing, and noticeably making a difference for love. (IV:307) If the goal is love, then that’s precisely what the devil will try to stop with all his might. In your life and in the life of everybody else who has made that their goal. Sin is missing that mark, that goal, and that’s what he will precisely tempt you to do then, to miss the mark and goal of love. And unfortunately he has succeeded in more aspects than many have the honesty to admit to themselves. They don’t see to what degree the enemy has stopped, hindered or slowed them down or kept them from the ultimate goal, how far off from that goal they actually really are. (IV:318)

It’s a challenge to stay focused on Me! But that challenge is still the goal. The question is, how much are you going to allow the enemy to divert you from it? (IV:320) My goal is to help you realize that I am sufficient for you! (IV:332) Time you should use wisely in order to make a bridge of it that will bring you to your goal, instead of seeing it as the obstacle that will keep you from it. (IV:380) People who get places are disciplined. They take their goals in life seriously enough in order to make it there. (IV:386) There is a jungle full of enemies you’re having to get through in order to get to your destination, and your only hope to make it through in once piece is to cling to Me at any cost and rely on Me more than you would on your natural gifts and strengths. (IV:422) To love as I love, that is what it is My goal to teach. (IV:433) Remember that this is your goal and purpose: to help alleviate the suffering of the world through what I have to give to it, and that it’s your job to help pass on what I have to give and have given you! (IV:493) The goal and ultimate vision of finding your dream is not in finding the right situation, opportunity or even group of people to make it happen with, but it’s about you being that person to make it happen. Consider this part of the process of reaching the goal of attaining the Real Thing: not just finding it, but being It or part of It! (IV:498) Sins keep you from attaining the real goal and target in life, which is what sin means: missing the mark. To let the light in means, you have to replace the selfish, temporal goals with better, lasting and eternal ones. (IV:516) Move in the direction toward Me, the ultimate Goal! I am the Goal. (IV:528) I provide the spiritual energy you need in order to live your life successfully and fruitfully, and make it to your goal and destination. (IV:529) My goal: to not leave things as they are, but effectively change them. (11:9) Not knowing exactly what’s going to happen is going to force you to rely on Me for what you don’t know; and that’s one of My goals concerning our relationship. (11:21) I’m leading you somewhere! My track isn’t just going to land you nowhere, but there is a goal and destination to be reached! Even though you can’t see exactly what the goal is, at least you can trust Me that there is one, and that I know and see it, and that it’s really Me leading you there. (11:30) My goal is to teach you to rise above the unpleasant circumstances in life and to walk through it victoriously in spite of them. How am I going to teach you that if I am only going to take you to pleasant places? (11:92) Even if it’s hard to resist the initial temptation to do what comes natural and harden up as a reaction to all you see, the goal is, not to allow it to affect you on the inside, to become spiritually invulnerable to all the hurtful and thoughtless, careless things they do. (11:107) Couldn’t be a wrong move to make more and a greater level of love to give in your life the goal of your achievement, could it? (15:181) Try to keep Heaven in mind as your Goal! (15:226) If I can manage to stir up your vision and goal in life to aim for what’s expecting you in Heaven, it’ll be much better and more valuable and lasting than any earthly, material success and achievement. See, making your faith grow, and your life’s vision and ambitions geared more towards Up Here, getting you more heavenly-minded, more loving and concerned about the eternal and lasting welfare of others, that’s the goal, and what I’m trying to achieve in your life for Me right now. Set your goal Up Here, not merely your temporal success and welfare down there! Learn how to live up to that, the heavenly goal, not just getting stuck in earthly and temporal achievements! (15:232) Stick to Me and stay tuned in to Me, and don’t allow the enemy’s tricks to divert and distract you from what should be the most important Goal of your heart and mind! (16:20) Learning to go through life victoriously, no matter what comes, should be one of your major goals. (16:42)

Make it your goal to please Us by doing Our will for you! Learning lessons of life means learning the lessons of love! Just try to put that rule and goal first in life, and you won’t regret it! (16:57) Remember that that’s not supposed to be your goal – popularity, but it’s much rather your task to stick to the truth, even if concerning what’s expecting the world, it’s an ugly and unpleasant one! (16:74) To make love the major focus, goal and aim in your life to make it become one of your features is pretty much the most important thing one can dedicate their life to, if they truly want to follow Me. So, make it your goal to keep that goal and principal task in your heart and on your mind every day! (16:76) It might take a bit more positivity to recognize and respect the benefits of aging, that drawing nearer toward the better Place you’re heading as a believer… but it takes some capability of overcoming the current circumstances and looking at the better Goal beyond through faith. (16:102) Keep your arrow pointed toward the true Goal or target, not any of the enemy’s distractions to get you down! Remember that humility’s been one of My main goals for you to reach! (16:106) The Goal is a good universe; and what it takes is the inhabitants to learn the disadvantages of evil. (16:112) Remember that the goal shouldn’t be to make your times as good and easy as you can down there, but that you’ll make it to the miracle of survival it’ll take through what’s to come, and thus be able to offer hope to those who won’t follow the AC and take his mark! (16:128) The best way for My followers to make the best out of current situations and circumstances is to keep their vision pointed Up Here, towards the eternal Goal! Surrounded by unholy items and objects all around you – and having to prepare for a worldwide situation when it will be even much more so – it’s absolutely necessary for God’s children, and especially those who seek to follow Me to lift their focuses Up Here where things are and will be better: your Goal and destination. Keep your vision and mindset geared toward your ultimate Goal – Up Here, right where We are and you’re destined to wind up eventually, too! Make Heaven your Goal, remembering your task to bring as many along Up Here that you can! (16:147) You’ve got to be heavenly-minded if you want to manage to attract others to that heavenly Goal! (16:152) If life is turning bad, that’s a good time to point your vision at what’s coming thereafter: your heavenly Goal and destination… (16:166) That’s the goal for My followers and believers: to let Me talk and do things through them, through the Power of the Holy Spirit, which is the Power that will help and enable you to make a difference, not just dwell in the same old rut of striving for one’s own survival that pretty much everyone else around you basically does. (16:181) To get your spirit independent of your surroundings, and make it completely depend on Me and Us Up Here instead… that would be the goal. (16:183) Not letting the circumstances rule one’s moods and spiritual state, but the ability to make the best one can out of them… that ought to be the goal for folks who want to learn something from the Lessons of Life! (16:192) Learning to take things whichever way they come, facing them and learning to do so in as positive a manner as you manage, is one of those goals to aim for and reach in life. (17:8) Keep your vision and focus geared toward your true Home! A better One’s to come, and that’s what you should keep your spiritual focus pointed on as your Goal! (17:46) Trusting Me completely for what's coming, that's the plan and goal. (17:48) To make the best out of the worst things, that’s really life’s greatest challenge, and with the state this world is heading for, you can imagine that that’s one of My goals for you to learn. (17:53) Making your faith in what’s beyond bigger than the challenging circumstances, well, that’s what you should see as the goal. Aim for the goal of the ability to rise above what’s going on around you… to make your faith bigger than the effect those physical conditions and circumstances are having on you. Aim for that goal! To let your faith enable you to rise above the physical circumstances! Keep your vision on that goal of sharing your faith!

Got the faith and vision that you can make it there? Well, that would be Our goal for you. Regardless of whatever happens and is going on around you. (17:65) To take whatever life brings is a challenge, I know… So, how about that effort and making it a goal to accept and take it, no matter how hard it comes? (17:70) The challenge for believers is to focus and rise above the disadvantages caused by the evil forces ruling down there temporarily, and keep the vision Up Here: your Goal and Destination. (17:93) The goal is that you become a winner, even if the enemy tries all he can to make you look like a loser, and be a loser, if you give in to him. Look at that as one of your goals: the victory! - Even if the present temporal circumstances may appear as defeat. That’s My goal for My believers: to win the battle regardless of seeming defeat. (17:94) Put the emphasis on faith and spiritual vision… that Goal of the Spirit! (17:97) Learning to put all your trust and confidence in Me and the Strength and Power to receive from Above, that’s the goal for you, since it’ll be the only way to make it through what’s coming. If the conditions down there are getting tougher, it’s just all the more incentive to point your faith and confidence in the right direction. - Not letting it be influenced - and thus, weakened - by all that’s going on around you down there, but staying spiritually focused on your Goal and Destination. (17:98) Keep in mind the goal of becoming a good sample of the life of faith! (17:100) That your Goal and Destination is another one than what moves most folks around you is a factor of faith. (17:105) Remember what should be your daily Goal and mental destination: the Spirit! Get into It and dwell in It! (17:115) Make an effort and make it your goal to go through life in faith instead of fear and worry! (17:122) To get Me to help you to make it, that’s what you should see as your immediate goal for right now. (17:124) Faith becoming more important than circumstances would be something I’d call a goal worth trying to attain and aim for. If faith takes the role above your circumstances in levels of importance and impact, I’d call that getting closer to what I set up as your personal goal for Me to reach. As ugly as conditions and circumstances around you are getting, the closer you’re getting in spite of them to reaching what I set up as a goal for you to reach. (17:135) Aim for, and make it your personal goal to manage to handle things in a positive way of dealing with things! (17:136) The best you can do is to keep your aim, your mindgear, vision and focus geared Up Here… the only true Destination where one can actually find whatever they seek - if they’re one of My sheep. (17:143)

…God’s Family & True Church Imagine if parents on Earth wouldn’t have any cares and worries about having to come up with the provisions for their families, and on top of it would not be subject to sin and the devil’s temptation: Their children would be their greatest joy, and the major theme around which the large part of their activities would revolve. That’s the way your Heavenly Father, and Queen, the Holy Spirit, care for you, watch you, rejoice in you, Their children. You have been given the awareness of your greater, heavenly Family around you. That Family is a much larger entity, a cooperative, inter-dimensional, multi-generational body or machinery consisting of countless members behind the curtain which separates your realm and Ours. Most people consider everything that is their own to be of superior value than that which is someone else’s: whether it be their own opinion, their own point of view, their own country or family or way of doing things... their own religion. That’s the difference between true faith and all false religions. True faith is the opposite of all that is ‘your own’, for it comes not from ‘your own’ world, nor ‘your own’ mind, nor from any place or realm that is ‘your own’. For the Kingdom of God does not belong to any man, but any man can choose to belong to the Kingdom of God.

I am He that breaks up couples, selfish little couples and families, to make of the broken pieces one greater Family. In becoming one with Me, you will become one with all the other partakers of My Love in the universe. ‘Come together over Me!’ That’s the scheme! And the result will be one big, happy, joyful, universal Family, My Kingdom of Love! It ever grows and expands, almost like an explosion. Just like a baby and any living creature comes into being by the union of one tiny cell with another and endlessly parting and multiplying until the baby is born and then grows into another grown human being, able to bring forth his own fruit, to continue the cycle forever on, so it is with all My creation and the spiritual realm. Learn to be friends who don’t hurt each other, but who respect each other and esteem the other higher than yourself. Friends who are truly willing to lay down their pride and lives for each other. I have called all of you, My brides and friends and brethren and family to be mates of each other. Learn to have a loyalty for each other which won’t have to be demanded and assured or confirmed over and over again, but a loyalty and a love which is simply there, unmistakably, undeniably and undoubtedly. That is how My Family and My followers throughout time have been able to operate and survive against all odds: It wasn’t that they had any outstanding means, finances or wealth to back them up, it was a look into their eyes that told people, “you can trust them!” That is what you must learn to put your personal trust in, more than any other physical security you would want to render, or guarantee you would want to give to anyone: It’s My Spirit that counts! The Spirit of Love. Put My Family, My Kingdom first, before your personal, carnal sense of belonging, and see how much I will bless you with greater love, both, on the giving and the receiving end, for “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Your spiritual Family comes first, before your flesh family. It’s a little bit of an acid test, as to whether your loyalties are really stronger to your spiritual ties than the physical... My Family on Earth is not a perfect, but a peculiar people, lest any flesh should boast. The Family is a spiritual entity, a spiritual army, and a lot depends on how loyal you are being to that army, meaning that whoever happens to be fighting on your side, alongside you in that army at the moment is your brother or sister in arms, and they deserve your loyalty, and if one of your carnal children tries to sow division between you and your spiritual brethren and comrades, you need to stand up for your convictions, which should consist at least in part of an undaunting loyalty towards your brethren, in spite of any and all weaknesses or flaws. I have made My stance on carnal families, whether it be father, mother, son, daughter, husband or wife, quite clear in My Word, and have clearly stated that those who obey Me and do the Father's will, they are My brethren, My Family. And the question is, how much do you believe that? How much do you practice that? If any man loves his flesh and blood family more than Me and My spiritual Family, he is not worthy of Me, nor of My Family. I have come into the world to set mankind free from the burden of their sins, but I have given My Family to the world in order to set them free from the slavery of the System. - The only alternative. But the devil tries to deny you the right to be free. He says, "No, this can't be done! You're breaking the rules! You're mine! You have to fulfill your duties towards my rules, my system..." My Family is a Family of the Spirit, and it's open to anyone who will, anyone who would like to join it, but in order to join it, you'll have to leave the flesh and the allures of the World at the door. Once you have decided you want to be part of our big heavenly Family, there are some pretty exclusive rules, and all that hog-wash from man's carnal mind, influenced by Satan, will have to go. The Real Thing, My friend, is right there: right on the scrubbing floors level of the nitty-gritty work of getting a tiny little family unit of "Me, thee, thou and none other" to function properly, before you can think of gathering masses of followers around you! Once you've got that core working properly and the way it should, you'll see that the other things will also fall into place in their own time. A marriage is a good thing, but marriage to Me and the greater Family is more important. In My eyes, you're all one big family! You all have the same great-great-great-great-great....grandfather, Adam, and after that, Noah, so, you're all one big family, so to speak. Now it's your choice whether you want to accept your place in that Family and do what you can to help your brothers and sisters or not. Or whether you prefer to play the devil's game and do it his way: "I take care of myself, and if that means I have to take something away from my 'brother,' I will not hesitate to do it!" Then you can join his family, but it's not going to be anywhere near as fun, and the rewards aren't going to be near as good as they are going to be for those who choose to be on My side and do it the loving way, the helping way, the considerate way. (II:294) "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, Ye have done it unto Me." In taking others in, you're taking Me in, and in trying to do your best so they'll feel comfortable, you’re bestowing that same hospitality on Me.

It's easy to lose sight of that vision, once you become familiar with someone and have come to know their weaknesses, and it gets harder and harder for you to associate them with Me in your mind. Just remember, "…one of the least of these, My brethren!" It's easy to host the noble, the strong, the obviously good, the beautiful, whatever pleasant qualities people have. But it's always a real test of love to treat one of the least of My brethren, those with faults and mistakes, and shortcomings, as if it were I. I will bless the efforts each of you will make to show you're one big Family, not just selfish little families all fending for themselves. (II:295) My Family is full of contradictions, riddles and wonders. You can't figure My Family out, label it, put it into any drawer and say, "It is like this or that, period." My Family is as multifaceted and complex as each and every member in it. My Family is like a garden, similar to the garden of Eden, and not without the presence of the snake, either, and the only way that garden is going to prosper is by maintaining it, applying elbow grease to it, tending it and keeping away from that snake! Keep Me as the Center of your marriage and family. I'm the glue that holds you together. There will always - in this world - be frictions within families, for various reasons: People are not aware to which extent the enemy tries to destroy their unity and fights them; they're not aware of their own weaknesses, responsibilities and share of the blame for the friction; etc. My Family is a living thing, and as in all living organisms, there are good things that work toward the furtherance and enhancement and procreation of life, and there are negative things, which also have their time and purpose, such as bacteria and other parasites, which are present a-plenty in any body, and just show that there is a war to be fought. Bacteria are not your actual enemy, but help to keep and make your body strong for the actual fight. You are My wife, My bride, My Family, and if I don't care for you, then I'm worse than an infidel. Loyalty to My Family, My clan, My heavenly country and nation is definitely priority over any "Egyptian" philosophies, views or even "open-mindedness." Stay radical, stay tuned to Me, stay dropped out, an Israelite at heart, and have no room in your heart open for the ways and enticements of Egypt. The church system is still based on the sermon principle, while I’m building My Family on the principle of becoming a living sample of the truth, just as I was a living sample, and all My true saints were samples of My love and truth, more than just sermons. There are enough teachers, preachers and talkers delivering sermons, but way too few guides who truly show the way by walking therein themselves first... You've got to show how much you're ready to fight for it, how much you really believe in the Family, in spite of some "relative" oddities, some traits in your spiritual relatives and Family that you tend to be ashamed of. I like to work in teamwork, and I don't just run a one-Man show up Here. I like to include everybody I can and allow them to participate in the work on the Big Picture. Let's bust that "group think" and blow all those little "groups" and cliques to hell, in order to finally make one large Family out of all of them! While it's true that since Cain and Abel, not all in My Family were of My Family, this should not surprise you or make you worry, "where should we turn to then?" I'm still in control, and you have to trust that this is My doing, My allowing and My planning. You see what happens to kids when everything is perfect for them: they become spoiled! The only thing that keeps folks desperate, dependent on Me and praying as they ought, is when things are going less than perfect for them, when there are adverse circumstances, and particularly those which are brought about from among their own ranks. Otherwise, the group becomes the substitute for everything: for Me, for everything they would look up to, live for and follow. The group becomes IT, instead of Me, the group becomes god. Man worship is still much more far-spread than many people realize, and one of the most common forms of modern idolatry, with many of its perpetrators/victims not even realizing it. And I'm not for it, but will do what I can to expose those idols for their feet of clay. It is My will that the Family isn't perfect, just as it has been My will that My church never was, and My people never were. The church was never meant to be the all-in-all. The All-in-all is Me, and the church is merely a place where you can find Me, a group of people through whom others can find Me, and sometimes by means of the very fact that My own people are so far from perfect. There's no other way but to look to Me. There's nowhere else to find the Perfect but in Me, and I'm using the imperfect to have those who seek the perfect point to Me. The message is: if you think you're going to find the answer and all you're seeking just in any group of failing, sinful and imperfect flesh and blood people like you, then you're wrong! You will always find some flaws anywhere, with anyone, in this world. If you want the flawless, turn to Me!

If there's anything I want My Family to be, it's different. I want there to be an alternative to that which already exists, especially that so-called normal arm-of-the-flesh-dependent System. When even kids become much more dependent on their mothers, maybe that’s a sign of what should be your attitude toward your heavenly Family! Why a physical Family became less of a force one can rely and depend on…, what if it was a step toward making you a lot more dependent on your Family Up Here and Above? They were the ones who sowed your faith in Us, but then they lowered down to make sure that faith and reliance on Our help would grow, because you’ll need it more than ever in the near future. Not being thankful for the faith that has been sown in you by them wouldn’t be thankful. Now, having received that thought from Above, you think you manage to be? (15:161) You’ve got a greater Family Up Here than down there; and it’s another reason to keep looking Up Here, to Heaven, from where there’s a whole lot more help available for you than from down yonder! (15:163) Just as you’re having a hard time putting up with the dirty manners of your kids, let it be a lesson to you what spiritual dirt can do to Us, and how uncomfortable it tends to make Us feel and have to put up with! Learn a bit of what the lessons of life have to teach you about your spiritual walk and behavior toward Us – your spiritual Relatives and Parents! Maybe the things you’re having to go through will finally give you a little sense of compassion for Us, your heavenly Family! (16:71) My Family’s a spiritual one. United through My blood, not your own. (17:111)

…(Golden) Opportunities Don’t let the enemy and the power of habit cheat you out of this opportunity to make a golden opportunity out of each one! Every moment is a golden opportunity to do something wonderful, if you include Me in it. If you’d take full advantage of every golden opportunity in life, you’d never ever be bored, confused or frustrated... Life would be constant fulfillment and excitement. (I:192) Pray desperately that you will not fail Me in those golden opportunities I bring across your path! (I:483) Your life is so full of golden opportunities and chances, you've just got to open your eyes in order to be able to see them. (II:126)

Continue to work on focusing on the positive, looking at the opportunities, instead of the obstacles! (II:130) Even though Romans 8:28 applies in every situation and things will work out for good, this doesn't mean that it's always necessarily the best that could have come of it. Just because in My Love I can turn every evil into good, it doesn't mean that there never could have been a better option, missed golden opportunities for which you might feel regret and remorse. (II:269)

The important thing is that you don't miss the golden opportunities to bring them in, that you show them the simple door and entrance path to Heaven. (II:288) I'm putting before you this challenge and golden opportunity to grow way beyond your present horizon and restrictions, way past your former way of handling and facing the situations. (II:295) It takes a lot of work and action to respond to the opportunity. My spiritual matters need to have that urgency for you, they need to become as pressing and important to you as your own physical needs! Learn to see those needs, recognize those opportunities and then obey instantly and go to work on them! (II:422) Constantly look out for opportunities of how I can turn something along your path into a victory, an advance or advantage for My Kingdom! You've got to seize those opportunities, seize the day, and not just let it pass you by! (II:474) Every day should be a vast scope and canvas of opportunities for you, of things to learn, and things to pass on. It shouldn't ever just be a struggle for survival. Embrace this challenge fully as coming from My hand: a golden opportunity to show that you've learned to let go and let Me do it all, and not think you must carry the load by yourself.

The more you see with the eyes of faith, the more you will see My glorious golden opportunities in even the blackest of nights and most gloomy situations! (II:523) As long as your life isn't perfect, you should always be openly welcoming change and that wonderful opportunity to learn how to do things differently than in the past! (II:625) See the opportunity, not just the obstacle! (II:639) Seek the opportunities to do something good, to be a blessing to someone else with your whole heart, the same way you would seek Me, My face and My counsel, the way a blind man would desire sight! (III:12) It shocks you at times to realize how much you're failing. But use it as an opportunity to emphasize just how much you need and are dependent on Me! (III:90) Look around for opportunities in which you can do something for others! (III:97) In all your efforts to cherish the opportunities to enjoy life and live life to the full that I'm giving you... opportunities that are hard to forego, it's easier to pocket the blessing yourself first, instead of passing it on. (III:110) Life is life for those who grab the opportunities, and not those who hesitate. Sometimes you've got to grab life's opportunities. (III:156) Never deprive yourself of the opportunity to learn and glean something from others’ experiences, even if it's just the attempt to associate and identify with their world view or their momentary perspective! (III:284) I delight in the opportunity to come through for you in an obvious way, undeniable that it had to be Me. (III:403) I want you to adopt an attitude about the money you’re earning that makes you see that you’ve really been given that money! You’ve been given the opportunity to earn that money by My hand. (III:455) Once you’ve learned a new lesson from Me in theory, you’ve got to look around for opportunities to put it into action, how to apply it in real life… (III:461) Sacrificing the opportunity to “make more” out of your talent in order to do the seemingly impossible job of bringing My message to people who don’t even seem to want it certainly requires faith. (III:476) Rejoice on a rainy day and let it be a golden opportunity for you to let Me be your Sunshine, the One to light up your life, to bring warmth and brightness and happiness! (III:495) If I bring an opportunity into your life, you have to give Me a hand in bringing it to pass. You cannot complete in the flesh what I have begun in the Spirit. (IV:80) You have to assess what is the greatest kind of damage you can inflict on the enemy, and wait for that golden opportunity. (IV:104)

See each crisis as an opportunity to experience more of My fullness and of My capacity to be all you ever need! When you’ve got no one else left to turn to but Me, it’s a golden opportunity for Me to draw you closer to Me, reveal yet another side of Me to you that you didn’t know before, take you one bit further into My depths, and show you how much more there is left of Me for you to get to know, and for you to come to the realization that I won’t be a disappointment to you, but that you can fully count on Me. (IV:156) Walk through your day seeking for opportunities to give! (IV:175) I want you to be open for, actively seeking and creating new opportunities by counseling about what more you could possibly do than you have been doing thus far. (IV:207) If you focus on witnessing, then opportunities to witness are also going to arise. If you know that that’s your goal and the best possible thing you can do with your time, and you focus on it and walk toward that goal, then you will also reach it, and opportunities will arise to make it happen. (IV:244) A lot depends on you, on your faith and your actions, and on how you’re going to invest your most precious commodity: time. You can either make it happen by your deeds and actions, or you can squander this golden opportunity, so choose and invest wisely! (IV:383) The danger lies in letting some of those golden opportunities pass for the sake of the comfort of old familiar ruts. (IV:394)

Life, to you, may represent a series of problems and obstacles, but for Me it is merely a series of opportunities to present you with My solutions, to show you My Love and Power and Light in contrast against all the dark and gloomy backdrop of your present conditions. (IV:477) You can honor Me by double-checking with Me, even if it may seem obviously clear that something would be a good opportunity to take hold of. Make sure that it’s really My highest and best option of My will for you! (IV:482) I know it’s a dilemma you’re weak, clueless and incapable, but your dilemma is My opportunity. (11:13) A positive attitude that is concerned primarily about the welfare of others, even above your own, will put you in the right position to spot opportunities to shine your light for Me as they come up. If you look for opportunities to shine, you will find them, and you will shine. (11:71) If you’re feeling unable, let it be an opportunity for Me to be able to do it through you! If you don’t think or feel like you can make it by yourself, let that be an opportunity for Me to do it through you and thus help you to make it! (15:188) Your weakness is an opportunity for My Strength to come to play and action in you, and trust Me that it’s the Strength you need, and especially will in the days to come that are expecting the world. (16:1) “Go ye into all the world…” is not a matter of feeling more “at home” elsewhere, but having greater opportunities to be used by Me, and thus bringing forth more fruit. (2016:41) See it as a positive side of physical weakness: as an opportunity for others to do and reap some good through helping! (16:49)

Can’t make it on your own? Good opportunity to make it through Me! (16:63) If your own level of strength and power has gone down, that’s an opportunity to use Mine through you. (16:79) Be thankful for the opportunities to get filled and led by Me… the only strategy to make it through what’s coming! (16:92) The greater the need for miracles and My supernatural Help, the more you will ask for them, and the more of an opportunity Heaven gets to manifest Its Power to you. Don’t fret about the difficulty of circumstances, but rejoice over the need and according opportunity for Us to manifest Our helpful Powers to you! (16:99) The world needs witnesses, at least to remind them someday that there would have been opportunities for them to snap out of the worldly modes that had them wind up in a less pleasant site than others… (16:101) If life strikes you as something negative, use that opportunity for Heaven’s Help to turn it into something positive in spite of any negative circumstances and conditions! (16:117) Don’t feel like you can make it? Good opportunity for Me to make it through you and thereby strengthen your faith and trust in what’s really relevant considering times coming! (16:139) Giving others a chance to make it into the better Hereafter will be better for you, too, being able to enjoy the fact that you’ve been enabling them to get Up Here, too, instead of regretting having failed to use the opportunity to win this one or that one… oh, and another… who could be There with you if you hadn’t failed to do your job. (2016:176) Withholding the golden opportunity to share Heaven or at least offer the way there to others is pretty much the greatest and severest failure of the history of mankind; and if you don’t want to be guilty of that, do all you can to resist the devil from his weakening and hindrance to do it! The meaning, sense and purpose of life for God’s children and My Disciples is to offer that golden opportunity of everlasting life hereafter that you have, and have been able to tell you do from the blessings you’ve been able to enjoy in life. If those blessings come to a halt, it’s a result of your failure to share them. (2016:185) The more helpless and incapable you feel, the greater the expression of your need for Me and My Help and input, and so, the greater the opportunity for Me and Heaven’s Power and Strength to come and fill you up. Feeling disabled and incapable? Cheer up! It’s the greatest possibility and opportunity for Me and the heavenly host to accomplish things through you. (2016:204) Less distractions: more opportunities to fully tune in to Me and the Source of your heavenly Strength – the one you’ll be utterly dependent on in times to come. Getting less concerned by and occupied with feeding of the flesh makes more room and golden opportunities to fill your spirit with what it should be filled with. (17:8)

Don’t feel too bad about physical incapability, but see in it My golden opportunity to become capable to do things through you! See… My “golden opportunities” look a little different, and are not that easily recognized as such, and thus require faith to believe in the less-than-obvious. (17:9) Keeping folks busy fending for their survival is one of the enemy’s standard procedures of keeping them away from the opportunity to listen to Me. (17:14) Need some miracle-power? Well, there are plenty of possibilities and opportunities Up Here for you to get some! (17:34) “Incapability” has become one of My leading topics. Don’t look down on it, but rather see it as that type of “golden opportunity” I like to use! (17:82) Never feel bad about feeling weak, but see it as Our Golden Opportunity to bring to pass through Our Strength in you what could never be achieved through folks relying on their own, physical strengths and capacities! So, don’t see that physical state of incapability as a negative, but as My Golden Opportunity to empower you and make and get something out of you that you never could in the flesh! (17:119) Why not just appreciate the good times you had, and be open for new golden opportunities of what I might have in store for you? (17:143)

…Heart Matters Listen to your heart! It’s so much greater to live by the heart and following what the heart tells you to do than do just hearken to the narrow confines of the mind. The mind sees the boundaries and impossibilities and why it can’t be done and shouldn’t even be tried. The heart just feels the urge to do it anyway and trust Me for the outcome. It’s the heart that counts. You won’t be judged or rewarded by how smart you were in this life, but by the love you show. It’s the heart that matters most! You've just got to have a heart for people, be concerned about them, be moved with compassion upon them as I was and still am. Take time to absorb Me fully, and to become a part of Me - to let Me become a part of you, a conscious part of you that's always there, one that you cannot lose. Staying in My presence is more a matter of the heart than of the mind. Even though with your mind you can make the decision to love somebody, it's still another step until you can truly say you love somebody, and that's just something that comes from the heart, not the mind. Love is a matter of the heart, "the heart of the matter..." If you really want to dig down deep, you not only have to discover mind-boggling truths, but let those truths sink deeply into your heart where they will change your life & take the desired effect. Drops of heavenly rain, heavenly love, cause your heart to blossom into life and warmth. The spiritual winter of your heart is over. The hardships you've been experiencing, the heat I've been putting on, are causing the hard shell to soften & crack open & finally the new you is coming to life, the person I wanted you to be. Not the cold, reserved, critical & calculating old you, but the loving, warm, affectionate, embracing you, that does not hold back from Me nor from others! A giving you, a smiling you, bubbling over with My humble joy and love, dropping warmth and love and affection and encouragement into the hearts of those you pass by. Changes of the heart are miracles that only I can bring about, you can't do it yourself, so quit trying & let Me do it! You must allow My Words to really sink into your hearts. That's from where the fruit of learning comes. Wisdom is so much more a matter of the heart than the mind. You've got to let Me plant My seeds into your heart, & you must absorb them with all your heart, not just acknowledge them with your mind. You've simply got to take the time for those seeds to really sink in. Relate from the heart and gut side of things, the love side, not the judgmental, analytical side of the mind. From the side of mercy, as you would want mercy if you were in their shoes.

You just can't legislate sincere goodness of the heart. Those who get the core and gist of My message, that love, nothing else, is the secret, they are the ones who have their hearts open to Me. It's the heart that matters, not some kind of dogma or theory, doctrine or any other head stuffing. The key and the gist of My teachings and of My life, and of all I want to convey to mankind is love, and that's a matter of the heart, not of the head. Let your faith, your religion, what you live and preach, be a matter of the heart, not a head issue! "The heart speaks to the heart." You've got to learn that language of the heart, the communication from heart to heart, that's what's going to touch lives, change people, and consequently, change the world. Words won't do you any good if you just keep them up there in your head. You need to reach out & apply them on a heartto-heart level, saying "I understand. I've been there, too. But He pulled Me out, & I know He can do it for you!" You've got to let My heart speak to your heart, in order for your heart to be able to speak to theirs. Everything is a matter of the heart. It's gotta be the heart. Hope is a matter of the heart. Faith has got to be a matter of the heart in order to become really real and spur you on to works and deeds which prove that your faith is alive; and love certainly also is a matter of the heart, not just a "concept" you can grasp. The position of your heart has to be right. It's not that I'm opposed to people using their brains, but I'm trying to get you to operate more by the heart, & not so much by the head. It's the heart that attracts people. The regular, average people are almost always rather inclined to be suspicious & mistrusting of intellectually inclined people, who convey an air of intellectual superiority, usually because they often breathe criticalness of those who are less so inclined. And I usually side with them. The Devil is the smart aleck who tries to pretend he's so much smarter than everybody else, & he ridicules them & makes them feel inferior. But blessings come from elsewhere, not only smartness. I bless the honest, humble, hard working people, & they're often more blessed than those incredibly intellectual thinkers, which usually tends to make the thinkers only more bitter & cynical & critical, but what it actually should do is cause them to think for real: that it's not only this supposed intellectual superiority that makes things happen, but the heart is an engine that can generate wealth more efficiently and reliably than mere intellect. The brain alone doesn't do it. It's the heart that moves one to action, which then actually makes the difference. The mind alone doesn't really have creative power. It's the heart that moves the rest of your body along to really get something going. You need inspiration, not just mere brain-power & intellect. If it all just remains in the realm of thought, it can so often be and remain nothing but hot air. You can think things up & down until it hurts & you can talk about them for ages, but usually the simple people will have simply done it long before you ever got around to stop talking about it. I am a very deeply integrated and inseparable part of you, the heart and center from which you've got to live. I want to be connected to your heart. My Kingdom must be based on more than mere intelligence or thought. It's got to be more than brainpower, but love power that moves you into action... emotion! Put your heart into it! If you try to figure it all out in your head & analyze it to pieces, it's going to look ugly. From a rational point of view, this life doesn't make a lot of sense; too much imperfection. It's not smooth enough for the mind. It's too rough, too many rough edges. That's why you're only really going to get through life successfully if you put your heart into it. The heart is what matters, the motivation; you've got to have the right incentives. You can only change another heart through something that comes from your heart in the first place: words from the heart, prayers from the heart… Whatever love has been there in your heart in the first place, must go out and reach another’s heart. There are other challenges in life than finding out what the great universal truth of everything is. Sometimes it’s the little truths, the little right attitudes and the proper position of the heart that make life on a local and practical level a lot more livable. While with some acquaintances and friendships the mind can be helpful, it is the heart, not the mind that will draw them to you. It is the Spirit that will thrill their hearts and minds and refresh and quench their weary and thirsty souls, not so much the input that comes of the mind.

…Heart vs. Mind Don’t listen to your head, listen to your heart! Your head says, “You’ve got to do this or that or the other in order to fulfill your duty, so that men will speak and think well of you.” Your heart says, “Just listen to the Lord! Forget all that and just love the Lord, and He will work out the rest!” Your head says, “Oh, but there’s bills to pay, shopping to be done and this and that and the other...” The heart says: “There’s listening to be done, there are Words to be heard from the Maker of the universe, Words from the mountain!” (I:62) Generosity is an open heart that pours forth; it can do no other, ignoring the reasoning of your mind. “Giving your love away” (and whatever I’ve given you)... “is doing what your heart says to.” So, listen to your heart! It’s so much greater to live by the heart and following what the heart tells you to do than do just hearken to the narrow confines of the mind. The mind sees the boundaries and impossibilities and why it can’t be done and shouldn’t even be tried. The heart just feels the urge to do it anyway and trust Me for the outcome. (I:365) You must allow My Words to really sink into your hearts. That's from where the fruit of learning comes. Wisdom is so much more a matter of the heart than the mind. You've got to let Me plant My seeds into your heart, and you must absorb them with all your heart, not just acknowledge them with your mind. There is so much to learn, but it doesn't all fit into your mind. You've got to make room for it in your heart. Don't seek to absorb it with your head! Let it sink in deep inside of you! (II:285) Isa.26:3 - You can have the perfect peace of knowing that I'm with you every step of the way, in all you do, if you keep your mind stayed and fixed on Me. It's a permanent fight to strive to keep your mind stayed on Me, and that's what those weapons of our warfare are there for, to pull down those thoughts and mental picture that are trying to separate and distract you from the knowledge that God is right there with you. You've got to train and discipline those thoughts in the obedience of Me! They try to break loose and run wild, hither, thither and yon, but you've got to catch them and bring them into captivity, tell them Who's the Boss, and Who they should obey. If you would truly be mindful of Me in everything you do, things would be different. If the devil tries to distract you, zoom right back in on Me! That's what you've got to do in order to train and discipline your mind! You've got to keep an eye on Me, keep your mind focused on Me, and you're just going to have to make a conscious effort to do that. (II:286) Most people just don't know any better than being the way they are, and even the knowledge acquired from My Word didn't protect you from erring, either. It's a matter of the heart, and as you've learned, "the heart speaks to the heart." You've got to learn that language of the heart, the communication from heart to heart, that's what's going to touch lives. You need to reach out and apply them on a heart-to-heart level, saying "I understand. I've been there, too. But He pulled Me out, and I know He can do it for you!" (II:451) You've got to let My heart speak to your heart, in order for your heart to be able to speak to theirs. Everything is a matter of the heart. It's gotta be the heart! Hope is a matter of the heart. Faith has got to be a matter of the heart in order to become really real and spur you on to works and deeds which prove that your faith is alive; and love certainly also is a matter of the heart, not just a "concept" you can grasp. (II:466) It's not that I'm opposed to people using their brains, but I'm trying to get you to operate more by the heart, and not so much by the head. It's the heart that attracts people. It’s not only the supposed intellectual superiority that makes things happen, but the heart is an engine that can generate wealth more efficiently and reliably than mere intellect. The brain alone doesn't do it. It's the heart that moves one to action, which then actually makes the difference. The mind alone doesn't really have creative power. It's the heart that moves the rest of your body along to really get something going. The intelligent mind often only sees the obstacles, it sometimes even creates them, whereas to be a pioneer, you need more than mere intelligence. You need to be able to see beyond the confines of the mind. Only those who can see further than the confines of their minds can break out and dare to go where no one else dared to go, do what no one else dared to try. (II:543) A hard and painful way is the only way some lessons really stick and hit home. Otherwise, they’re often forgotten too easily, or only briefly grasped with the mind, and not deeply absorbed by the heart… life-changing. (II:640) Move from the heart, know from the heart, speak from the heart, share from the heart, live and give from the heart... the inner you that is often so well protected that few can ever find it, but what you’ve got to reveal. The world needs a whole lot more heart! Your mind is trying to get in the way, trying to figure it out!

But you can’t figure out where one that is born of the spirit is coming from, and where he’s going. While with some acquaintances and friendships the mind can be helpful, it is the heart, not the mind that will draw them to you. It is the Spirit that will thrill their hearts and minds and refresh and quench their weary and thirsty souls, not so much the input that comes of the mind. (II:656) All of My true apostles have heard My voice inside their hearts, that’s why it was My Love that constrained them, not just some knowledge of duty they had in their heads... It’s got to be love that motivates you, it’s got to be the heart. When you pray, pray from the heart! When you speak, speak from the heart! When you sing, sing from the heart! Faith from the heart, that’s the flame you’ve got to tend, the power you’ve got to feed from and act from: that’s gotta be your motor, the hearth on which is to be done whatever you’re cooking up... where it’s got to be happening! That’s where you’ve got to find your answers, your motivations, your direction, your driving force that spurs you on…. that knowledge deep inside the heart! (III:2) I want to be connected to your heart. My Kingdom must be based on more than mere intelligence or thought. It's got to be more than brainpower, but Love Power that moves you into action... emotion! Put your heart into it! If you try to figure it all out in your head and analyze it to pieces, it's going to look ugly. From a rational point of view, this life doesn't make a lot of sense; too much imperfection. It's not smooth enough for the mind. It's too rough, too many rough edges. That's why you're only really going to get through life successfully if you put your heart into it. (III:25) Love is My Spirit which is like the wind that bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof but canst not tell from whence it cometh or whither it goeth. You can never figure out love. You can only know it in your heart; it doesn't fit in your head. It's so much greater than anything that men could pin down and define with their finite minds, and it's definitely so much greater than some of man's limited perceptions of It. (III:83) You can only change another heart through something that comes from your heart in the first place: words from the heart, prayers from the heart… Whatever love has been there in your heart in the first place, must go out and reach another’s heart. In order to really leave an impact on the world, you’ve got to live from the heart! (III:410) I’m trying to get you organized, but from the heart, not the head, and in the right spirit: My Spirit. It means: bathing issues and matters before you in prayer, meditating about them, listening for the whispers of My Spirit about them to fill in the blanks and give you any checks, warnings and nudges when you’re about to forget something important, or you’re heading in a wrong direction. (III:416) It takes effort to bring “every thought into the captivity of the obedience of Christ (2.Cor.10:5).” The mind wants to run free, like a wild horse. It’s the strongest part of that which I call “the flesh,” that wants to rely on its own strength and show off its own power, instead of yielding to and relying on Me. That is why there are older folks who still strongly refuse to accept Me as their Lord and Savior. Their bodies may have weakened, but their mind is still strong and determined to resist Me for whatever reason. It’s a sacrifice to yield your mind to Me. It doesn’t come naturally. You give something that costs you. You must be convinced that you’re better off giving your mind to Me than letting it roam free where it can do what it wants. Of course, it’s not just your mind I need, but your heart also. Once your heart feels at home and at rest with Me, your mind will eventually follow. You have to tell your mind who’s the boss, similar to the way you have to let your child know, since otherwise it will just do whatever it wants, and obedience becomes harder and harder then. When your mind wants to run off, give Me your heart, and I will whisper into it and cause your whole spirit to be steady. I will be your “Heart Whisperer.” (IV:133) I wouldn’t want your faith to be only in your head. Your mind may be filled with lots of beautiful ideas and input, but if your heart doesn’t match with that beauty and won’t meet the same standard, then it will still reflect negatively on who and what you are as a sum. Your heart is determined by your actions and the way you behave and treat others, more than by what you say. Your mind is like the ideology that you have embraced by which you would like to run and govern your life… it’s like the sermon, or the “commandments.” But your heart is determined by how much you actually do live in accordance with those thoughts and words, that ideology, and how much you manage to put it into practice. Your heart is determined by the way you live. (IV:166) It’s your heart and the way you see things that needs improvement, more than the actual circumstances themselves. (IV:425) You’re a medium, a vessel and tool and recipient for My input and gifts from the Holy Spirit. That’s why being a vacuum is important, too. And the most important thing is not just to absorb it with your mind, but also with your heart, the combination of which is the soul. Love is what matters most, so, keep it in heart and mind, which equals: your soul! Make your soul a soul of Love! – And accordingly, your actions and their fruits and results! (16:148)

Great and positive qualities are apparently not as dependent on what’s in the head, as what’s in the heart. (17:27)

…(Heavenly) Family In My eyes, you're all one big family! You all have the same great-great-great-great-great....grandfather, Adam, and after that, Noah, so, you're all one big family, so to speak. Now it's your choice whether you want to accept your place in that Family and do what you can to help your brothers and sisters or not. Or whether you prefer to play the devil's game and do it his way: "I take care of myself, and if that means I have to take something away from my 'brother,' I will not hesitate to do it!" Then you can join his family, but it's not going to be anywhere near as fun, and the rewards aren't going to be near as good as they are going to be for those who choose to be on My side and do it the loving way, the helping way, the considerate way. (II:294) "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, Ye have done it unto Me." In taking others in, you're taking Me in, and in trying to do your best so they'll feel comfortable, you’re bestowing that same hospitality on Me. It's easy to lose sight of that vision, once you become familiar with someone and have come to know their weaknesses, and it gets harder and harder for you to associate them with Me in your mind. Just remember, "…one of the least of these, My brethren!" It's easy to host the noble, the strong, the obviously good, the beautiful, whatever pleasant qualities people have. But it's always a real test of love to treat one of the least of My brethren, those with faults and mistakes, and shortcomings, as if it were I. I will bless the efforts each of you will make to show you're one big Family, not just selfish little families all fending for themselves. Everybody can live a selfish little life, but only those who have My supernatural Love governing their lives can live like My Family. (II:295) I want to be your Family! Even if I am the only Member of your family, I’ll still be more than enough. (IV:138) My Family has been a vocal witness and testimony against the System from the beginning, as well as the living proof that an alternative life-style apart from the System and outside its matrix is possible. (IV:218) Give the first place in your heart and life to the right Ones! We’re the Three of your true, lasting and eternal Family with more brothers and sisters around Here, and more helpful ones than you could ever expect from your earthly surroundings. The Spirit calls! Hear Her? Let Her prove to you that She’s a better Mother and Family member than anyone you’ve encountered down there! – Along with the Father of Love Himself, and the One They sent down there to die for you to make sure you’d get to your true Home! See that what happens between you and your kids is often symbolic of what happens between you and your heavenly Parents? (16:108) Part of walking in the Holy Spirit is the ability to show forgiveness and loving others in spite of their wrong-doings, which is what We, your heavenly Family, do. (16:135) If you feel alone and abandoned down there, let it cause you to gear your confidence Up Here, where your true Family lies! (17:62)

…Highs & Lows (Ups & Downs) You just can't stay up on the peak all the time. You're not home yet, and the valley regions and lows are just reminders of that! (II:366)

Life has its ups and downs, and I purposely allow a whole lotta shakin' going on in order to test you. The ultimate clinch being, will you trust Me anyway, or at some point allow yourself to believe that you know better than Me? (III:74) Be freed from the chains that tie you to Earth, trudging in a circle, and look up and soar high into the Heavens instead! (III:77)

There will always be times of plenty interchanging with times of less, and greater austerity required: Life's roller coaster ride. You've got to learn to handle the ups and downs as they come and treat both the same. (III:156) You've had to realize just how much man's ways oppose God's way. You've had to learn that God's way up is down. You've had to go down that road and taste from your own experiences, the hurt of your falls, just where it is that man's way is leading. (III:269) The bottom is the best place to start for a way up. If you’re stuck in a hole, maybe it’s time to look around for new ways and stairways and possibilities to get you out of it and to ascend once again for uphill progress. (III:591) Stay “on top,” spiritually and mentally, even when you’re on the ground! (IV:187) Love takes both, the ups and downs, and doesn’t just remain loyal during the good times. You learn to take the ups and downs, the bad times along with the good times. (IV:205) My way up is down, and what I call a promotion is often a call down to the rock bottom of the realities that some folks have simply tried to escape and avoid… (IV:224) Rock bottom’s a good place to start back on your way up again and out of the hole you have allowed yourself to get into, the hole of resignation to your fate, the hole of self-pity, and feeling victimized by your circumstances. (IV:225) If fail to do what is needed in order to make uphill progress, there’s not going to be any uphill progress, which means, the direction in which you’ll be going is down. (11:4) The flesh wants for itself a road that takes it up, when the true path of happiness which comes from laying down your life for others is a path that will lead you downward. So don’t worry nor be dismayed by those downward slopes, those days of absence of light, and instead of hardship! That’s a road that much more resembles My own and that of every true saint who’s ever lived. God’s way up still is down, and knowing that for sure is sometimes all that counts and makes all the difference: knowing you don’t have to despair when life takes you for a downhill ride, but that it will serve its purpose, just as those rough rides always have… (11:47) The enemy’s forces will try to get you to allow your physical circumstances to drag you down. My Forces will lift you up way above all that muck and mire instead. The choice is yours every day. (11:55) There is a higher purpose and a plan and a higher goal to attain, but the only way to get there is via this l ow road of human inefficiency, disappointment, disillusionment and even despair about their present state. You’ve got to find out where it’s not at in order to find out where it’s at indeed. (11:69) I’m always down at the bottom to catch you and help you make it back up again, usually to greater heights than before. (11:114)

When you’re low, that’s a reminder that you need Us, Our Help and Strength from Above. (16:24) Keep looking Up Here in the spirit, and the victory shall be yours! Looking down, and all around at the negative circumstances in your world cannot be too helpful without looking Up at Me and Our Kingdom, from where you’ll find the solution to any problem, as much as your faith allows. (16:36) Remember gearing uphill, not downhill! If you do believe in Me, your attitude should accordingly be more positive, even if “McNegative” tempts you as much as he can to get into his downhill groove. Don’t let the enemy drag you down with negative circumstances! So, don’t allow downhill circumstances to pull down your faith in what’s supposedly a better Uphill Dimension! Otherwise, I’m afraid that faith will be too weak to win others to Me and pull them in the right direction. (16:49) Against all the forces trying to drag and keep you down, focus on the Upside, and receive the Strength you need from Here! (16:58) Don’t keep your focus set on the earthly circumstances, which – as you noticed – are going downhill!

Learn to cope with those downhill circumstances and conditions by keeping your spiritual focus and vision geared toward your true Home! (16:67) The physical circumstances around you will always have the tendency to drag you down. That’s why you’ve got to learn to keep your mindset and vision and gear of thoughts directed Up Here… the side of faith… to keep lifting you up! So, look Up Here – by faith – and not down there, which more often only will have the tendency to weaken your faith! All depends on the direction your mind’s set and aiming at! – And the best direction’s not down there, but Up Here by faith instead! It’s the devil trying to stop you from looking Up Here where your hope lies! So, don’t let him, but keep looking Up! (16:68) See the times of things and circumstances going down as a way Up – closer to Me! - As “God’s way up is down.” (16:100) It may be quite a trial and test of your faith and trust in Me and the Father, to be allowing your life to drift down to a weak and low state… but in the end, can’t you imagine that if you’re getting Our Strength through your physical weakness, and that low state will turn out to be actually lifting you up, that it would be a proof and confirmation of Our Promises from Above? So… not so fond of the weakening and lowering process… but what about that good old line, “God’s way up is down,” and the verse, “When I am weak, then I am strong…” “…for His Strength is made perfect in weakness?” (16:126) Remember: “Look UP!” Up Here! – Your Savior from all troubles, and your everlasting future Home! Not down there… (16:132)

Keep your vision and your spiritual look Up Here in order to become a more uplifting fellow to those around you! Keep your look Up instead of down! (2016:134) Your state depends on which direction you’re looking! – Up Here or down there. (16:141) When things drag you down, come to Me to lift you up! (16:144) Since “God’s way Up is down,” you can tell why I’ve had to let you pass through unrosy times. But the more you look and focus Up Here and on Me, your Rescuer, Helper and Savior from the troubles of this world, the more you learn and manage to overcome and rise above what’s going on around you down there. (16:147) The way to make it up from Rock Bottom usually shows an unusual path with unusual methods. (16:151) Seeing blessings in disguise is a sign of faith. The lows are moves up in disguise. If your fleshly capacities take a low turn, remember carnal weaknesses turning spiritual strengths up! A weakening process of carnal abilities: Another spiritual up out of a physical way down. (16:153) Keep movin’! Direction upwards! (16:156) The only direction in which your focus can manage to lift you up: Up Here! Remember: “Look Up!” (16:162) The way up is steep and more challenging, but also offering a much wider range of view of what’s before you and what’s coming. So, time to get some of that courage you’ll need for the uphill slope! (16:175) Do not allow what’s going on around you in the physical to drag you down! – Now, when it comes to that kind of feelings… it’s better to learn to resist them, and let Me lift you up through your faith! (16:182) Getting tuned in to Up Here is a good thing to do. Not just letting what’s going on down there direct your paths. (16:188) Look at the physical way down as a spiritual way up! - The weaker the flesh, the stronger the spirit. If “God’s way up is down,” that means the tough circumstances I allow to befall you will in the end lift you up through your growing closeness to Me. (16:203) The natural way of getting older unfortunately isn’t improvement or way up. Generally, the path of the flesh is a downhill slope. (17:3) You can tell how My counsel I’m giving you lifts you up when you’re tempted to feel more on the down side of things. (17:14) It’s the ones walking the low and humble paths in this life and world that will get to enjoy the higher paths in the long run… another reason why patience is such an important gift from Above! (17:17) When things around you are on a downhill course, it’s the challenge for you to look Up in spite of it! Don’t let circumstances drag you down, but let Me lift you up! (17:26)

Don’t try to make it “up” anymore according to worldly rates and levels, but even if things tear you down according to their measures, remember that that’s what I and all My true followers were “up” to! Remember that “God’s way up is down,” if you ever feel tempted again to feel “down” about your only reaching lower levels in your own efforts! (17:72) Learn not to let the physical conditions drag you down, but stay up through faith in what lies beyond it all! Set your faith Up Here, not down there! (17:75) Remember to “Look Up!” Going by what’s around you is more like “looking down.” Tune up your spiritual vision, since what’s coming at the world, the physical outlook alone will just drag you down, otherwise! Point your faith and its vision Up Here where I am and We’ll all be expecting you when it’s your time to come Home! (17:91) Get used to the factor of things in general going downhill! You’ve got to keep making that effort to raise your spiritual vision up; Up Here to Me, and your Future Home! Stop expecting perfect conditions down there! I’m afraid they won’t be found down there. So, keep your faith vision pointed Up Here! (17:98) If circumstances down there tend to drag you down, that’s another sign of the need to look Up - toward Me, the “Author and Finisher of your faith!” (17:109) Lower states of places can indicate that they’re on God’s way up. What’s high in material aspects is often lower in spiritual ones. (17:111) Difference is one of My major attributes… Not following the downhill roads of the majority, but be called to follow My small and steep different paths up! So, it’s a rough and steep way up, but trust Me that it’s still better than that broad road down! (17:123) Even though the AC will also perform some supposed “miracles” of a different style, take My “Miracle-Way” as the one from Above… quite different from the one coming from below! (17:130)

…Hindrances & Adversities (/Obstacles) The obstacles are part of your training, to sharpen your focus on Me, to increase your desire for Me. (II:622) I’m not leading you on a path without confrontations, but one where you learn to deal with them with My Help as they arise. (IV:13)

You shouldn’t be intimidated by obstacles. Where’s your faith in My ability to help you overcome them? (IV:40) The greater the adversity, the greater the victory! – The greater the miracle I will have to do, and thus, the greater reason to rejoice and praise Me. (IV:187) The extent to which you’re learning to trust Me calmly now in the face of adversity and loss will determine how well you’ll be faring then, when adversity and loss will reach unprecedented proportions. (IV:195) True love can give you faith to overcome all and any obstacles. (IV:393) The obstacles that are there to overcome, just as in every good and perfect thing I put before you, are like an additional proof of authenticity, since it confirms My usual modus operandi, and it resembles the way I work in your life. (IV:400) Obstacles are just part of the rocky road to get to your destination. (IV:406) They who don’t have the devil to fight against (since they’re basically, even if largely ignorantly, fighting on his side), also don’t have to overcome some of the obstacles he puts in your way. (IV:422) You are presented with ever increasingly challenging tasks and obstacles before you. (IV:452)

You must put your trust in Me and continue to fight, refusing to be intimidated by the seemingly overwhelming adversities. (IV:456)

Whisking you out of your immediate, temporal little realm into My heavenly and eternal One, you can see things a little more from My scope and angle that gives you the faith to overcome the obstacles, since all of a sudden they don’t seem so large and overwhelming anymore. (IV:477) Face the challenge in the desperate mode it takes to make heavenly Help happen and clear away the obstacles and problems! (16:159) I’ve told you that times would become rougher. So, don’t be too shocked or surprised about the circumstances and situations you’re being confronted with there! (16:179) When you neglect important factors like prayer, to what extent can you imagine the enemy goes to in order to hinder you and prevent you from it? (17:96) If there’s a bit of worry lingering in you, it may just be a reminder from the spirit world to keep you on guard and in prayer mode without which you won’t make it through the times to come! See that worry as a step of preparation by getting you into prayer groove, putting your efforts and strengths where they belong in order to help you make it and overcome whatever hindrances rise up before you! (17:99) Obstacles to overcome and rise above are reminders to stay on guard. (17:103) Don’t see the difference between yourself and regular folks as a hindrance, but see it as something precious, just as the difference between rocks and diamonds! (17:116) The effect of unpleasant circumstances and conditions around you is a tough challenge, I know… a challenge of faith. How strong is it? What obstacles are you letting it help you to overcome, and get you to focus and aim beyond? (17:132)

…His Plan You are part of My Plan! Just because you don't witness the execution of the plan yet doesn't mean there is no plan! A plan is a big manifestation of faith, because it's the rough draft of some action you're going to take. But the more intricate and special that action is going to be, the more time needs to go into the making of the plan. So, if My plans involving you take a little more time than you would wish, relax, because it simply means that a lot of preparation is going into you and My plans concerning you! Warfare constantly requires of you to make changes of plans and to develop new tactics, and you yourself change a lot. When the enemy does something in your life to try to foil My original plan for you, then I and My angels have to make contingency plans and find alternative ways of making things work out for the best for you and to still bring you to your level of utmost possible usefulness for My kingdom! (II:191) Make My plans more important to you than your own! (II:529) I'm the One Who's got the plan, and the only way you can be in on it is by following Me closely. (II:629) If you want to succeed, just stick to My plan! (II:633) You've got to be savvy to My plan, you've got to be in on it, and get a clue of what I'm up to. And that's basically what you're doing in prophecy: you're getting a clue. (III:44) I have a different plan for everybody. Something different works for everybody, and one of these days you'll realize how My hand was at work in a different way in everybody's life. (III:241) You may not see the plan, but I've got a very clear picture of it, and I can let you partake of My knowledge, My wisdom, My vision, My goals and My plans for you, and not for you only, but for this whole planet and mankind per se, just as I have already given you a general outline of it in My Word. (III:248) The enemy is going to be instrumental in bringing about My plan, since the world won't be ready for My one-world religion until the devil will have imposed his on them. (III:330)

The first thing to do is to say “yes” to My plan and show that you’re going to believe Me for it. (III:400) Take it by faith that the “hard times” are just as much part of My plan, and thus just as much reason to rejoice as the “good times!” (III:401) I don’t want to exclude you from My plans, just as I didn’t exclude My prophets of old, and revealed the things and workings of the Spirit Realm to them so that they would write it down in order to give you a clue. It’s a great privilege and responsibility to be involved in the decision-making and the plans and workings of the Almighty. (III:449)

I have an individual plan for everyone, not just one big plan for all. In the end, each plan will work together perfectly and weave into one perfect Big Picture that will reveal itself as a Master Plan for the universe. (III:473) You may ask, like I did, “If it be possible, let this cup be removed from me,” but just as in My case, you’ll find that it’s necessary to drink that cup! Things just wouldn’t be the same without it. Your personal history, which is a part of history and part of the Big Plan and Picture, wouldn’t be the same without it. (III:557) It’s painful to watch others go down a road, which you know is going to lead them to pain, but that’s where you’ve got to trust that in spite of the looks of it and the vastness of the pain you see impending, I will nevertheless get a greater victory from it and My plan and purpose will not be defeated. (III:564) A situation that is going to require lots of desperation and help and guidance from Me is all the more conducive to My plan and according to My will and liking, even if your flesh may crave for the opposite, a situation it can easily handle in its own strength and wisdom. (IV:3) It’s part of My plan for mankind to find out all they’re capable of, namely what extent of evil they’re capable of, for them to realize how much they need My Help in order to accomplish anything good and make their lives turn out good. (IV:62) I have put you in this situation in order to learn to yield, to be willing to say “I will” or “yes” to My Plan for you, even if it may be a painful and humbling path… (IV:100) If you have a believing attitude of “Yes, Lord; I believe that you’re going to do it,” it’s going to be more helpful in bringing about My plans, of course, than a doubting attitude… (IV:132) The thrilling thing about Our Plan in life is that We make winners out of those who may look like losers to the world, and even to themselves sometimes… (IV:187) Free choice has and always had its price. That has been the plan, and I’m not about to stop it now, so close to the goal and the conclusion of the plot. The story is nearly done being told, and though there’s yet one last dark and fierce chapter to be written and told, the glorious ending is also coming into sight. (IV:203) You can trust Me that I’m an intricate Planner, and always a few steps ahead of My opponent who tries to cross My Plans, and sometimes it may even look to you as if he was succeeding, but you’ve got to trust in Me and the Father and Our superiority over the enemy, which makes it a given that it really only does seem that way. (IV:300) Strive to be a blessing for each other, to bless and be blessed… That’s My original Plan, and sooner or later we’re all going to get back to it. (IV:436) I have ways that you know not of, and My plans are often somewhat mysterious for you and even hard to believe. (IV:443) Everybody living on their own was certainly not My plan or intention for mankind. (IV:445) Don’t forget the possibility that the reason why things might not be going according to your plan is because they’re not going according to My Plan, and that I might have different ones for you for the time being… (IV:504) Once you see that it’s not the fates running amok in your life, but there’s an actual intelligent Plan behind the things you’re going through, it becomes much easier to bear with it, to yield to it, and accept it and be happy with it, doesn’t it? (IV:535) I need to partake in your life in order for you to bring forth the fruit you want to bring forth and lead the abundant life you want to live, in order for My Plan to be perfected. Certain things could never have been accomplished or done, if the key players involved hadn’t agreed to their role and hadn’t said “yes” to My Plan for them. Even though right now you may not know yet exactly just what that Plan is going to look like, it is expedient for you to yield to My flow and My workings and directions in your life – to continue to say “yes” to Me. (11:23)

So, you tend to need a little more rest than the average. If I have equipped you with that need, maybe it’s precisely My Plan in order to keep you close to Me. (11:24) Since I’m the Creator of the Big Picture of life, the landscape, My Plan for you and details may significantly change according to My vision and according to My wisdom and creative imagination… When you can just let it be and let things work out according to the wisdom and Plan of God, then you’re giving God a chance to be glorified instead of insisting on cashing in the glory for yourself. (11:35) There were times when pilgrims and pioneers of faith were tempted to ask, “Why did You bring me out here?” But in the end it always became evident that I had a Plan. (11:40) That’s the kind of yieldedness I need and want from you: the surrender to the Big Plan, not your own, and rest in the knowledge that the Planner will see it through, no matter whether you feel capable of it or not. (11:63) I have a Plan, and I need you to trust in Me a little bit for it and hang on even before you see any results, okay? That’s what’s called faith, and that’s what it’s all about: faith, hope, love. (11:87) To do what’s best for the overall Plan of the Kingdom, even if that involves personal sacrifices, you know you won’t go unrewarded. (11:126) We need folks who’ll apply the Help of the Power from Above in order to get the good things done that are Our will and plan to get out of that world, regardless of its presently fairly miserable state and shape. (2015:238) Learning not to feel at home down there is part of My will and Plan for you! – To get to feel more at home Up Here instead… feeling not at home in the world, but Here! – Your true and everlasting Home. (2016:61) There are divine plans in what’s going on down there, even if the divine side is a little hard to see when there are hard times involved. (2016:65) Staying in the same old grooves isn’t part of Our Plan or pattern for you. (2016:188) The times to run in the confidence of your own strengths and capacities are simply over. Bad news? It may seem so, temporarily, but you’ll see the wisdom of the heavenly plan behind it sooner or later. (2016:205) Not exactly knowing where your track – or My planned track for you – is heading requires faith and trust, but it’s also part of the preparation for the days and years to come when it’ll be a lot tougher yet to know what’ll be on the schedule for the next day, week, month, or even years. (17:38) My plan for you is for you to learn to live by faith each day. And not knowing far beforehand where it'll lead you is part of it. - Trusting Me completely for what's coming, that's the plan and goal. (17:48) “Losers,” according to My Plan and schedule, are the most likely ones to turn out the winners in the end. (17:97) Through that mess the devil made of Our creation, and thus, out of just about every life in it to some extent, the Father decided that they need a Savior. And it has been planned like it from the beginning… Not such a bad Plan, after all, as I’m pretty certain you’ll see in the end. Just make the right choice! - Our Plan? - Or the enemy’s? Or your own? - Or which of the two will you make your own? (17:112)

Giving My will and Plan for you a higher priority than your own desires and ways of looking at things should help you to strengthen the acceptance of My will to stick to your job in your life down there. (17:118) Take life’s circumstances as life’s challenge! If the weather’s colder than you like, and the sky darker, take it as a manifestation of the dark and cold forces taking over the globe! Learn to deal with it, handle it and accept it as part of My Plan for you of things you’ve still got to learn! (17:130)

…His Presence

I'm always right there for you. The "knowledge of God" is the knowing and being fully conscious of the fact that God is right here, right there with you and a very real and substantial part of you every second and every milli-second of your life, the very Power that created you and keeps you going with every breath you take. You could and should be absorbing Him consciously with every breath you take, every thought you think, every word you speak, etc. But what causes you not to do that is the distraction tactic the enemy uses, "every high thing" which exalts itself against that knowledge and conscience of My Presence in your life, that makes you think you can do it on your own. (II:286)

Focus on Me, not on any things you want to present to Me, not on anything you think I might want you to do, but just focus on Me, so that I can fill you with My Presence, with My Spirit. (II:435) I'm always right there, waiting for you with open arms, and you're never alone, don't ever forget that, and don't forget to tell others! That's the most important point I'd like you to get across, along with the fact that there's hope for anyone. (II:469) The only way My Presence becomes real to you is by acknowledging it and availing yourself of it. (II:523) It’s only your position that changes. I am the Lord, I change not. Yesterday, today, forever... the same. I am constant. Constantly and permanently there for you, just like the air all around you, just like the universe all around you. As long as the universe is there, you can be assured that I’m still there, too! (II:643) You can become Me for those around you, and that's what life is all about. If they can see Me in you and see Me act through you, hear Me speak through you, and they can feel My Love coming through you, what else could you possibly want? What else could be the goal? What else could there possibly be to attain? (III:104) Although you can be sure of My Presence and of the fact that I like and want to talk to you, you've got to want it and have a vacuum for it. (III:144) If you want to feel My Presence more, there is simply no other way than to be spending more time with Me. (III:206) I have let your world come tumbling around your ears, in order for you to assure them that I'll still be there to hold and catch them when theirs will come tumbling around their ears... You will have learned and experienced My realness, My Presence in times of trouble, and you will have a very real faith to offer to people. (III:265) If your eyes are open enough, you can see Me in everything, even in a story in which My Presence doesn't seem to be too obvious... (III:266) There’s perfect sense and purpose in Me having chosen the imperfect to do My job, so that no flesh should glory in My Presence, but it will be evident forever that it was only a work of My grace and Spirit if any great thing will have been accomplished at all; and so that all those high and mighty won’t have the excuse that they couldn’t have done it because it was too difficult. (III:425) If My sole Presence should ever not strike you as sufficient, I want you to know that I’m not alone, either, but there are millions at your disposal, of which each one has got more to give to you than any human living on Earth ever could. (IV:127) No matter what tricks the devil may pull, if you avail yourself of Me, My counsel, My Power, and My Presence, all that I have put at your disposal, you can’t lose. (IV:142) My Presence in people’s lives isn’t necessarily limited to labels such as “Christian” or any other religious or philosophical drawers and labels, but My Spirit flows freely into the lowest places and humble hearts and shuns the proud and haughty of whatever confession and religious affiliation. (IV:143) My Presence within you will surpass and outlast all their furious ragings against you, their batterings against your walls, their pounding on your shores that moans, “Give up, finally!” (IV:165) Closeness to Me does not work as long as you still have other things and preferences in your life above Me, because those other things are usually rivals to My Presence, position and effect in your life, and they are counter-productive to what I am trying to accomplish in your life. It’s as if they annul My efforts in your life and tear down whatever I’ve been trying to build. The only way it works is if you allow Me to move that clutter out of the way and replace it with My Presence and input in your life and let Me take over that spot reserved for “the most important thing” in your life. As long as there are other things that occupy your thoughts more, I cannot really function properly in your life. The only thing I can do then is work on moving the clutter and garbage as much as you grant Me the consent and permission to do so. And once I do, your initial reaction is usually, “Hey, why are You taking those blessings away from me?” Well, only to replace them with the greater blessing of My Presence and closeness, which is what you really want, right? I’m not forcing anybody to stick close to Me against their will. (IV:187)

I will always be there. The devil may temporarily be able to create the impression that I’m not there, just as I was tempted on the cross to believe that the Father had forsaken Me, but it’s never true. Just as the Father was always there, I will also always be there. (IV:189) Even I was tempted to waver and felt forsaken by the Father, only to find out that I wasn’t and never had been! He was always there, just like I am – and He is – in your life, even if you may not always be aware of Our Presence. One day you will realize that nothing else really mattered in your life, compared to the importance of My Presence in it, My involvement in it, and your decision to trust Me. (IV:192) My Presence is a constant, it doesn’t change. There’s never a time I’m not there for you. It’s as sure as the presence of the sun. You may not be able to see it, but you can know for certain it’s there, because otherwise life on Earth would pretty much cease immediately. You may not see it because the skies are grey, but it’s there. Likewise you may not always see or hear or feel Me, either, but you can be just as sure that I am there, ready to give My spiritual warmth and Light and Life to you. Even on cloudy days the Earth does benefit from the sun’s warmth and light. So, you can thank Me for, and enjoy My Presence, even during those times when it seems less present or obvious. (IV:202) When there has been enough of bad and negative input flooding you from all sides and you’re discouraged, then it’s time to avail yourself of My Presence. (IV:231) If it was even better My disciples that I disappeared in the flesh, don't you think that My Spirit and Its Presence in your life are more important than any physical friendship or relationship? (IV:245) The way to win the battle is by availing yourself of Me, My Presence, Love and protection. (IV:247) My goal is that you become so gung ho over Me and this big advantage you have over others by having Me as that permanent Source of everything you need, that you will more gladly, more willingly, readily and openly share Me with them, offer Me to them and advertise Me to them, so that they can benefit from My Presence in their lives, too, the same way you would recommend a good film, book or piece of freeware. (IV:303) It’s easier to assume My Presence in the nice, organized and orderly lives of those who hardly ever make mistakes, who are apparently and obviously successful. But look at My own life and the sort of people I hung out with: From a worldly viewpoint, they were a mess. They all ended up in persecution and martyrdom; not exactly criteria by which the world would measure success. (IV:326) The troubled and painful times are not times of My absence. I’m there, just as close as I always am; it’s just that because of all that’s happening around you, it’s a little harder for you to perceive My Presence. (IV:330) I’m the only Companion you can never lose in this life. It’s true that tangible companions do have that advantage over Me and My company and Presence, but Mine is more lasting and enduring. (IV:335) Rely on Me and on My Presence more than the presence of any tangible person! (IV:349) The only true and lasting reality you can rely on in your life is My Presence and My Person in it, because the presence of any other person may vanish from one day to the other. (IV:350) The only One Whose Presence is always guaranteed is Me. I have not promised that I would guarantee that there will always be someone by your side until you leave this Earth, but I did promise that I would be with you even unto the end of the world. Nothing else will last forever in this life; only My Presence in your life, and the fact that I am always by your side. (IV:351) The greatest factor of stability in existence to offer to anyone: Me and My Presence in life through faith in Me and relationship with Me. (IV:368) The only Presence and company that will always be guaranteed in your life is Mine. None other will do. (IV:381) Nothing else will ever truly satisfy or turn out to be as permanent and lasting as My Presence and Help in your life. (IV:389) Learn to live a life conscious of Me, My Presence and your need for Me in your life! (IV:402) My Presence in your life will be manifested in love. (IV:462) There is a purpose for My being around and for My Presence in your life, even if man keeps trying to tell himself that he can do just fine without Me (with, of course, plenty of support and encouragement from My enemy, and, really, his enemy, too). (IV:495)

Only when I’m the main Center of your focus and attention, does My Presence in your life really become relevant. (IV:509) By seeking Me and My Presence, you alter your situation. (11:9) It’s essential to have a relationship that glorifies Me, one that you can tell that I’m really in it, one in which My Presence is a given and in which you can see Me in each other. (11:29) There are bound to crop up problems, and you’re going to wish for My Presence and Help in order to deal with them when they happen, and the only way you can ensure that is by staying close to Me. Give each day to Me, dedicate it to Me and let Me be there and present for you, and even if you should drift away from Me for a little while in your thoughts, come back to Me! (11:50) You can see the traces of My Presence everywhere you go, and if at times you’re tempted to feel forsaken and overwhelmed, then it’s usually simply because you don’t avail yourself of My Presence and help as much as you should, which is precisely another reason why I’m bringing along these more taxing times. (11:85) Feel your need for Me and the need to feel and experience My Presence and My Spirit upon you… If you feel the need for Me and My Presence and action in your life, it’ll be good for you, replacing the need for other things. If you believe in Me, part of that faith is seeing the necessity of My filling your life and spirit with My Presence. (2014:59) When I’m around with you, things should start going a bit better… even if that doesn’t mean that the world is getting better, since few are the folks who are ready for My Presence and the Father’s Spirit… (2015:247) They that receive you may be receiving Me and My spiritual Presence along with you. (2015:250) Just get ahold of Me, My Presence and Spirit, as soon as you can during the days! Just remember Me and My help and avail yourself of it and My Presence in your daily life! Avail yourself of My Presence! If you’re having rough times, let it be a reminder that you need Me and My Presence throughout your day, including all the protection, help and anointing you can get, because times down there are obviously getting rougher, and the last days of the enemy’s complete reign over the world are fast approaching! (2016:41) If your days tend to begin with negative vibes, see it as the positive need and desire for you to draw yourself closer to Me, get in touch with Me and have Me help you make it through your day; as there are days coming you won’t possible make it without Me and My Presence in your life, and your connection with Me! Let Me and My Presence be the Power to help you make it through the day, since that’s the way it will have to be in the dark days to come! (2016:100) It might strike you as bad news that the roughest times you’ve ever had to go through are going to become even rougher, but that’s why I’m reminding you of the necessity of clinging to what you’ll need to make it, and with My input keep reminding you of Our Presence. (2016:191) The greater the challenge, the more you’ll have to include Me, avail yourself of the Help from Above, and the clearer it will make My Presence in your life through the miraculous action it will take. (17:43) Your presence has a task to fulfill down there, and it basically represents Mine, just as the presence of My early disciples did! So, your presence is what represents My Presence, which is why you ought to be mindful of the sort of sample you give, and not give folks an excuse for not receiving you - and thus, Me because of those failures. Your task for Me down there is to make your presence a representation of My ultimate - and eventually coming - Presence, which - for every life that does receive Me - will make the ultimate difference! (17:77) It is one of the purposes of My servants’ lives: to display My Presence and Power through them, so that no flesh will boast, but glory and honor will go to the side they belong. (17:125) Part of My commandment to even “love your enemies: Bless them that despitefully use you and persecute you!” So, bless them with your presence! - My Presence in you and through you! (17:126)

…Illusion/Delusion

(Matrix) One of the greatest tragedies in human life is the illusion that there’s no need for Me in their lives, and there are no lives as pitiful as those of the self-satisfied who live in the delusion of having no need for Me. That’s what the enemy is trying to construct with all of his distractions and temptations: the illusion that you don’t need Me. Will you cling to Me, or will you let the appearance of things, the strength of your flesh and the beauty of nature create for you the illusion that you don’t need Me as much? (III:587) Unless what you have to pass on to the world is really pointing them in My direction, often it will only contribute to the illusion of their present matrix, and thus it will only encourage them to put more energy into the temporal, and invest more of their lives into that which is doomed to fade and pass away, instead of that which lasts, and in My eternal Kingdom… (IV:11)

Man invested the truest of all currencies, namely faith, in the words of the Deceiver, instead of Mine, and that created a whole new paradigm, a whole new worldview, call it another “matrix” if you wish, because not only is a man as he thinketh in his heart, but his world will be effected by his thoughts and the way he sees everything, too. (IV:113) It takes an effort to punch through all the fake and false mindsets based on the devil’s illusions to the clear picture of reality. (IV:132) The knowledge of evil creates the illusion that you really know something, when nothing could be further from the truth. The head stuffing of the devil creates the illusion in people’s heads that they’re actually smart. - Loads and loads of useless information, creating an illusion of a reality that’s just a fake, and a poor counterfeit of the Real Thing. (IV:171) If you’re in touch with Me, you’re in touch with reality. If you’re not in touch with Me, then you’re more likely to be influenced by other factors that distort reality as I see it, the matrix of the world, and whatever illusion the enemy manages to paint in your mind. The Real Thing is reality according to Me, which is always something you need to distinguish from the false, painted and illusory fake reality and matrix of the devil. (IV:182) Just as people can have illusions and false notions about this world being alright, so you can also have deceptive notions about doing things without Me. (IV:183) Being a servant of Mine is infinitely more rewarding than being a slave in the matrix, which may enable you to play a tyrant over a handful of other people for a brief time in the present, but will usually only result in misery later… (IV:193) My Family has been a vocal witness and testimony against the System from the beginning, as well as the living proof that an alternative life-style apart from the System and outside its matrix is possible. (IV:218) As long as you show and prove with your life that living by faith is possible even in this day and age, you create a loophole out of the devil’s matrix and prove that it isn’t watertight, and thus, destined to sink. (IV:219) Through the first human choice to disobey, Satan has been granted the power to issue his own orders and initiate processes on his own, which, of course counter My workings, and in actuality threaten to take over the matrix of creation like a bad virus that can rapidly infect a whole computer system. (IV:227) Even with all the constant worsening of the world, I can effect some improvements within some chosen regions and aspects of the world, and I keep painting and building and establishing My Big Picture within the crumbling picture of the Matrix. Instead of joining the rest of the devil’s matrix in the process of decay, those who cling to Me and keep their focus on Me, actually improve. (IV:240) A lot of the devil’s power by which he enslaves people is by creating illusions, and awaking from these illusions is one significant step toward true freedom; and thus, the experience of having your illusions shattered, including the illusions of false, temporary freedom, are really another step toward that goal. What did I tell My disciples, was the factor that would make them free? - The truth. The truth is the factor that frees you from the most enslaving factor in the world, the lies, delusions and illusions, false appearances and deceptions the devil creates in people’s minds… the Matrix. (IV:353) You simply may not accept the devil’s lens of a viewpoint of insignificance. Once he can get you to believe that you, your life and everything in it are insignificant, you’re sunk! Then you’re trapped in his matrix, in which you’re just an insignificant cog in the machinery, a battery for his machine, just an insignificant Mr. Anderson, instead of the one who could change it all. (IV:364) The devil has pulled out his best guns, and in that matrix of his, he’s god, and can come across as quite intimidating.

But how great is his power outside of his little plastic matrix? How great is it Outside, in My Real World, the One you’re a part and a citizen of? (IV:502) It’s important for you to get ahold of My Wavelength of faith every day, and make an effort to stay there, if possible, as opposed to getting sucked in to the negative, rational and skeptic mindset and thought-matrix of the System… The worst thing you can allow to happen to you is allow yourself to become infested with the bug of the illusion that the temporal rules, instead of the eternal. (11:104) Their way of seeing and handling things is really only a sad illusion; a shadow that will disappear, along with all shadows, when the true Light appears. (11:106) The only way to get ready to present and offer people Heaven is to get out of the illusion of seeking Heaven on Earth, which unfortunately will only come after hell on Earth. (16:122) Few are willing to make the choice of accepting Me as their Savior as long as the trouble’s still out of sight, and they can keep living in the enemy’s created illusion. (16:168)

…Importance & Significance Nothing's too unimportant for Me. The question is, how important are they to you? Important enough to stir yourself up about them to call Me up about them? (II:608) The enemy is sly and tries all kinds of techniques to get you to think that this thing is more important or that thing is more important, but if you stick close to Me, I will always be able to tell and show you what's really most important! (III:27) There is nothing that could be anywhere near as important as My time with you, My communications with you. (III:112) Sin is, when anything other than love becomes more important to you. Pride can make you feel like your own ego, honor or hurt feelings are more important. Greed can make you feel as if material things are more important. Fear can make you act as if your own survival and security were more important, contradicting My Word that "Whosoever shall save his life, the same shall lose it." Then come all the lies the devil uses in order to stop loving others... Lies about them or about what's more important... (III:368)

What do you deem more important: Temporary applause and approval, or the eternal, heavenly rewards for putting emphasis on the right kind of priorities? (III:508) Keep your focus on Me, and I will alert you like an inner alarm clock to the truly significant events! (III:518) The more you realize the error of the way of the flesh, the more it will drive home to you the supremacy of the spirit, and just how important it is that you not be blinded by the lures of the flesh. (III:531) My Word is full of Promises. Sometimes it’s easy to forget about them. That’s why I’ve been telling you how important it is to remember, to not forget about My Promises, My Word, My vision. (III:546) To learn the skills of love is more important than any other skill you can learn. (III:557) We’re looking for something more important than a cure for cancer, and you have only just begun to recognize the problem: people’s unwillingness and refusal to recognize any problem at all about themselves. The refusal to recognize anything wrong at all is the only way they can manage to cope with their faulty world. Most of the problems in the world are being caused by people’s preference of their own “truth” over what really is the objective truth. Sometimes I choose what could be deemed an unfruitful situation for someone, because the lessons to be gleaned from it are more important to Me than any fruit that could be gained in another situation, or by changing it. (III:565) Your happiness is important to Me. (III:568)

Caring for others is even more important than your own headway. (III:569) To make out My voices and input from among all the System’s roars is something you decide you want to learn because of its utter importance. Faith is just about the most important thing you can invest your time in – apart from love. (III:590) My Words are the stuff the worlds are made out of, but prayer is just about equal in importance, because as your reaction to My Words, it is pretty much as important to Me. That’s how much prayers mean to Me, and how much importance and power I give them. (III:604) The mind working on its own without My Spirit will just bring forth the fruits of the flesh. And so you wind up tired, exhausted and frustrated instead of fulfilled and satisfied with your achievements… I have to allow you to make these experiences to drive home the importance of depending on Me instead of doing it on your own. (IV:15) The enemy knows just what it takes to get you to neglect your greatest and most important duty of all. (IV:26) Sometimes silence is an important part of what I have to convey to the world. (IV:64) You can trust Me! That’s what I want you to convey to others, this very confidence, so it’s of utmost importance that you learn to do that yourself first. (IV:68) It’s of utmost importance that you stay connected with Me and keep your focus on Me. It’s very important that you give the world the message as much as you can beforehand, before the Tribulation, and before the mark of the Beast will be implemented and the church will be persecuted, because “the night cometh when no man can work.” (IV:69) It’s more important that you do whatever you do from the heart, than just that cold sense of duty, and just thinking you’ve got to do it because you ought to. (IV:76) All those things that concern you may seem of utter importance to you temporarily, but are they, really, compared to the relationship between you and Me? What could be more important than that? (IV:82) Worries, cares and problems only come into being when you allow other factors to replace that role which I’m supposed to play in your life, and they become more important to you. Spiritual communication, even if it may not seem to be getting you anywhere in this world, is much more important and crucial in keeping you alive and going successfully, than any physical means of communications ever could. (IV:83) Remember faith, hope and love, three spiritual values much more important than any of the physical circumstances around you! Faith and hope make it possible for you to be able to continue to love, which is the most important function, if that’s what the Father’s all about! Get onto the track of love, remembering how important it is! – Just about the most important! Without it, nothing great can be accomplished! So, pretty important to stay on the channel of love, isn’t it? (IV:88) Just a little bit of time and attention, and a little bit of a listening ear… It’s hard to grasp that something so simple could be so important. (IV:109) You’re slowly beginning to realize that I am really far more important, and play a far more dominant and superior role in your life than any other person ever could. And that’s the way it’s got to be. The more important I become to you, the better able you will also be to treat your fellow humans the way you should. The more you establish the importance of your revolving around Me, the more stable you will be as a factor for others’ lives to revolve around. (IV:117) There are more important, more urgent matters than having fun. (IV:126) There are things that are more important than your own immediate satisfaction, happiness and contentment, and I need you to trust Me for that. (IV:129) I’m trying to reduce the preeminent position that fun and diversion are having in your life to one of lesser importance, and establish a better one for Me and My affairs in your mindset of priorities. (IV:147) It’s important for Me that you can dedicate yourself to My Cause wholeheartedly and without distractions. I cannot spare you to tickle people’s ears and consider that more important than what I want you to do for Me and My Kingdom, just because it brings in more money. My job for you is more important, and if you do that, I will undoubtedly take care of you, just as I always have. (IV:153)

While the truth is important, and delusion must be destroyed in order to build a firm foundation of truth on one hand, it’s equally, if not more important, that it’s clear that that foundation is a foundation of love, and thus recognizable as a safe haven for those seeking refuge from the debris of their shattered illusions. (IV:167) How important it is to shield yourself from the wrong kind of input, and how poisonous and detrimental it can be! Doesn’t it drive home the importance of your job all the more, and the need for good and wholesome input and information to give to the world, for My truth? (IV:190) One day you will realize that nothing else really mattered in your life, compared to the importance of My Presence in it, My involvement in it, and your decision to trust Me. (IV:192) I’m trying to teach you that there are more important things than chasing after numbers. All have their degree of importance. But none of them are as important as the standard and measure of love. See things through the eyes of love, and make it your yard stick by which you measure everything, even the cost and price and value of your daily endeavors! You’ll see priorities shifting in your life. Things will change. Most importantly, you will change. What else could be more important? (IV:200) If it was even better for you and My disciples that I disappeared in the flesh, don't you think that My Spirit and Its Presence in your life is more important than any physical friendship or relationship? (IV:245) Be not concerned about the significance of your role for Me, whether it’s an outstanding one, etc., just be there! The important thing is that you do your part, you don’t have to worry about it. If you realize that you’re just one small part of a greater whole, you don’t have to worry anymore about the significance of your part, nor does the weight of the responsibility weigh too heavily on your shoulder, because you can relax and trust that I know what I’m doing. (IV:300) Remember that love is the most important thing! (IV:307) Nothing compares to the importance of getting in tune with Me. (IV:316) Be a good, diligent and thorough student of life, and become a master of the most important art there is to learn in it: love. (IV:328)

It’s hard for you to imagine sometimes, that My relationship with you should be so much more important than all these other, earthly matters that encumber you from all sides, but it is, and some day you will see the full weight and extent of that importance, too. (IV:329) “What God has put together, let not man pull it asunder,” and it is so important that you actually allow God to be the One to put you together in the first place… (IV:332) The most important factor is love, it’s not the differences… (IV:352) How much do you really give Me the rank of importance in your life that is duly Mine? (IV:363) You simply may not accept the devil’s lens of a viewpoint of insignificance! Once he can get you to believe that you, your life and everything in it are insignificant, you’re sunk! Then you’re trapped in his matrix, in which you’re just an insignificant cog in the machinery, a battery for his machine, just an insignificant Mr. Anderson, instead of the one who could change it all. The devil is trying to give everything his slant of insignificance. But in the light of the fact that everything and everyone is significant, don’t let him fool you, and don’t let him reduce you to his game of nothingness! If I made everything of nothing, he tries to reverse it and make nothing out of everything. He tries to reduce it all to nothing in people’s minds. He gets them to look at creation – the everything made from nothing – and say, “It’s all nothing! It all came from nothing and came about by itself and bears absolutely no significance.” So, beware of his and the world’s mindset of insignificance! People will all realize some day just how significant everything ever was, even every word from their lips, and even the very hairs of their heads are all numbered. (IV:364) See the lessons as the important and substantial part, not the fun and the games during recess! It’s a fairly important facet of maturity to have your priorities straight. (IV:379) It’s important to always get your fresh “manna” for each day and not rely on the counsel of yesterday, especially when it’s concerning people and changeable circumstances and situations. (IV:421) Trust Me for how important it is for you to know exactly who and what you should put your trust in! (IV:424)

When you’re more important to yourself than anybody else is, it simply shows that you have chosen yourself as your god, and folks like that are simply not quite reliable, and you can pretty much tell they’ll always sell you out sooner or later for some personal advantage, convenience, or their own survival. (IV:431) The fact how long it took even My attentive students to figure out the fundamental truth about the importance of focusing on the heart of a person they’re facing, instead of all the other ado that makes up the outward appearance , status, title, rank or position in the world, shows how badly needed and neglected It is, and how little folks really know about the most important Factor of the universe: Love. (IV:433) Betrayal has taken place as a reminder of how important loyalty is. (IV:457) The enemy comes up with all kinds of mean tricks to rob you of the most important thing in your life, which is that time you spend with Me. (IV:470) I’m the Source of all that’s good for you. Those who are not sure about that yet or think that My role might not be all that important in their lives are going to find out that they were mistaken about that… (IV:495) The significance of the role I’m playing in your life is easily underestimated, especially as long as friends abound, and life seems to be a party. (IV:518) Your love is what’s most important to Me, and likewise, My Love is what’s most important for you! (IV:524) What’s important is that you keep your focus on Me, keep your will on My side, keep moving toward Me, keep saying “yes” to Me in this game, and consider Me the Goal worth attaining, the One you want to get close to, instead of getting further away from. (IV:528) I’m trying to bring home to you the importance of the role I play in your life, and that it’s not to be underestimated, which, unfortunately, it largely is. Just as the light simply happens to be pretty important if you want to see anything at all, so it happens to be the case with Me in your life. I simply happen to be the Light. It’s simply very common human nature to tend to neglect and underestimate the importance of the role I play in your lives. (IV:529)

Your priority is the Kingdom. All other things and matters rank second in importance. Your heavenly citizenship must be more important to you than your earthly one. (11:1) The threat of impending doom seems to do what no measure of love and sweetness can accomplish in some people’s lives, and that’s one reason why correction is so important. (11:4) By clinging to Me and My eternal Realm, you manage to let go of that which is less important since it is far less real in the scope of the Big Picture, the eternal scope, the one that really matters. (11:9) What’s important is that you move according to My standards of faith and love. (11:10) Blessed is the man who enjoys changing a baby’s diaper, because he’s a man who has learned to love, and there simply isn’t anything better or more important anyone could learn in this life. (11:11) My personal relationship with you is important to Me, and I want you to realize that it’s important to you, too; and I purposely allow you to stumble into situations out of which no one else can save you but I. (11:12) The most important thing is that you keep your trust in Me, keep looking to Me as your only Hope, and you’ll find out that I will not leave your trust unrewarded… (11:13) Give Me a chance to work in your life to a greater extent than ever before by giving Me the priority, importance and emphasis in your life! (11:15) What’s also important is that you don’t just read My Words and study them, but digest them properly with prayer and meditation. What do you think is more important: physical comfort, or the spiritual one that determines spiritual well-being? (11:17) Taking time to do nothing other than wait on Me shows you have faith that I am greater than time; yes, even more important than that very thing that seems to govern your world… (11:26) What’s important is that it’s not just someone’s ego being fed there, but something is happening that glorifies Me, that gives Me the credit for what’s happening and thus will bear good fruit. The key lies in realizing the importance of My role in it all, which by far the majority of people completely ignore and fail to

recognize, or flatly refuse to. The more you realize that it’s mostly My doing instead of your own, the closer to the realistic picture of the whole thing you are, and thus you also become aware of the relation of importance of the different factors involved. To most people, they themselves are the most important ingredient, as far as they’re concerned. You’re in the process of learning that that might be a mistake, and that there’s a greater, mostly unrecognized Factor which has by far the greatest level of importance in it all, and the more you learn that, the more you’ve got your finger on the pulse of the actual and ultimate Reality, such as I know and convey it. (11:29) Perhaps you’re giving some of the things you pursue and desire too much importance, neglecting some of the actually more important things, and that’s the reason why you can’t seem to find any lasting satisfaction in the things you pursue. (11:34)

If occasionally it does get a little too hard or harder than you think it ought to be, try to remember that it’s got to be My Strength you’re doing it in, and that involves and includes giving Me the glory for it. If it’s really becoming too hard, it may well be that you’re forgetting about that one important factor. So, just try a little humility – a very important factor in the “My yoke is easy” clause – and give Me the glory, instead of feeling all great about yourself, patting yourself on the back or taking it for granted that, of course, you should make it, why not, you always have… (11:39) Life isn’t always easy or a piece of cake, but a genuine fight and battle at times, and it requires fighting for whatever is most important to you. (11:46) It takes a lot of faith to believe that hearing from Me should be more important than working. But if it all comes down to it, it’s one of the most important points I’m trying to make ever since Cain and Abel: anything you can do in the flesh is not as important as that spiritual task of nourishing your soul and spirit with input from Me! “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God… Labor not for the meat which perisheth,” etc. Whatever is happening in your life, it could never be as important as My role in it, and what I’m trying to say to you and convey to you. (11:49) Don’t neglect your time with Me, because that is the most important part, if you don’t want to miss your purpose in pursuing this road! (11:50) In the end your trials, troubles and “problems” will look so ridiculous, the “donut” will be so nice, bright and big and obvious and “in your face,” that you’ll shake your head in disbelief over the fact that you spent so much time staring at the hole in the middle, as if it were actually important or played any significant role at all… The differences between you that sometimes give you a hard time will become totally insignificant, and you’ll finally realize once and for all just how much you’ve had in common all along, and how those common factors are just so much more important and relevant and worth paying attention to than any differences. (11:62) The truly magic moments for Me are the ones when you have nothing and no one left but Me, and you finally realize that this is the difference between Me and all of them, and you begin to get a glimpse of the extent of My importance in your life. Yes, it may hurt to lose your friends, but if this is what causes you to realize the importance of your best Friend, then it’s something good and that will work out for the better and your greater good! (11:80) As important as music is, people are always more important. (11:84) Where most people don’t have a clue about Me, it makes your job both, more difficult, but also infinitely more significant and important. (11:87) Having and showing trust in Me is what it’s all about, and it’s one of your most important testimonies. (11:88) It’s important for you to get ahold of My Wavelength of faith every day, and make an effort to stay there, if possible, as opposed to getting sucked in to the negative, rational and skeptic mindset and thought-matrix of the System… (11:104) I’m not the only One at the controls of your life, but a lot is up to you, too, and you control a significant part of your life’s outcome and turnout. (11:108) The example you give and live is something so much more important than anything you could ever put out in mere words. (11:110)

It’s so important you keep embracing the belief and faith in My Love for you, especially in the face of adverse circumstances. (11:112) The most important factor in anyone's life: their relationship with their Creator. (12:11) That’s basically what faith is mainly about: the ability to give greater importance to factors and things beyond what can be seen with your eyes! (16:34)

The spiritual sowing of the seeds of love will result in the spiritual – and thus, everlasting – fruits and results: children of God. It’s My hope and confidence that you’ll get into it, your main and most important job and task in life. If love is the most important factor in life, make sure you’re spending all the time and effort possible in sharing it and passing it out! (16:38) Considering Me the most important Part of life means, since I’m your Teacher, the lessons to learn from it and through it, also belong to that most important part! (16:47) The rough times are more important to learn things from than the easy ones. Life may be rough and with a lot of challenges, but to learn to deal with and manage them is one of life’s most important lessons… (16:51) Asking for My Help and direction is a very important gear to get into for the future! To be open for and dependent on My leadership is very important for folks following Me! One important factor is not to just be concerned about your survival down there, but the job each of My true followers should have in mind, concerning being a witness, and thus, a director to Heaven for others who are receptive, and thus deserve to come Up Here when their lives are over… (16:52) The most important thing is your connection with Me… and something you’ll eventually be quite thankful for. (16:58) Love is the most important “Thing!” And giving is one of the most important actions in life. (16:62) Faith is one of the most important factors you’ll need in order to make it. (16:67) That’s why the theme of vision, focus and outlook is so important: It all depends on the direction your mind’s set and aiming at! (2016:68) When you don’t have much of a clue if or how you’re going to make it, trust Me that it’s just about the best way one can get onto a path of a life of faith – one where your connection with Me plays the most important part, and not just your own capabilities. It’s important for you to realize and keep remembering that the world is not your home, and that it’s not the time to enjoy it like a vacation, but a time to prepare for the biggest trouble in history. It’s important that you stay on a path of preparation for what’s to come. Stay tuned in to Me as much as you can, and don’t be cast down by the circumstances around you! It’s one of the most important lessons to learn concerning the times coming, of the roughest circumstances ever. (16:74) Remember the importance of putting My counsel into action! (16:75) To make love the major focus, goal and aim in your life to make it become one of your features is pretty much the most important thing one can dedicate their life to, if they truly want to follow Me. So, don’t forget or neglect to make love your most important task in life; otherwise you’re just bound and headed for failure! (16:76) Realizing the need for positive spiritual input above your longing for pleasant physical circumstances is something that’s becoming very important, considering what times are before you. (16:82) Just remember that the most important relationship you can possibly have is the one with Me and your heavenly helpers! What’s important for you to know is: “He that receives you receives Me!” Action is an important topic, but Attitude even more so, since trying to do the right kind of action with a wrong sort of attitude isn’t all that promising of good results. (16:83) Remember that other things are definitely more important to Me than income! No wonder I said to My disciples, “Without Me you can do nothing!” - Nothing of what I’d consider important to do. (16:85) The times coming will create dependence on heavenly Help. I keep pointing it out to you, so that you get the point of its importance. (16:86) Try to take sufferings with a bit of grace and accept them as a necessary procedure to teach you some important lessons you will be able to benefit from and appreciate when the school bell rings! (16:91) That’s why faith and trust are so important: without them, you won’t make it through the days to come. (16:95) Getting onto My channel is one of the most important things to do for any true followers of Mine at this time, and any circumstance that grants you to do so, is a positive.

The food from Above is the best and most important. (16:97) If you can’t fully rely on your own physical capacities anymore to see you through, see it as an important part of your preparation for the days to come when no one will make it on their own! (16:98) It’s important to get used to the substantial need for prayer, and the Help from Above you’ll get through it – the relatively small part you have to do to get miracles done. (16:99) Preparation’s a big, important topic, and ignoring it would be a serious mistake in sight of what’s to come! (16:104) Humility and overcoming pride is something more important than physical well-being, as far as I’m concerned. (16:106) Remember that our relationship – yours with Me - is supposed to be the most important… (16:107) If you’re beginning to realize the failure of some of life’s most important lessons to sink in, maybe it’ll give you the grace to put up with the far-from-perfect conditions you’re presently under. (16:108) Remember that that’s the most important task of any human – especially those who believe in Me: to love! (16:111) An important lesson: to make the right choice; reject and resist the evil, and to prefer to choose the good instead. In a largely negative world, constantly getting worse, faith is so important. The faith in the fact that good will ultimately win over evil, and that evil will be overcome to such an extent that it won’t have to be dealt with anymore. Remember that faith and trust in Me is more important than going by circumstances! (16:112) There are huge changes coming; and getting used to them and becoming adaptable is an important factor. (16:116) To get ahold of your problems, confront them and overcome them is an important step. Not just looking at the evil around you, but confronting and dealing with the evil inside you may be the hardest part, but definitely also the most important and necessary. (16:120) The way to get folks through the Endtime will be primarily based on their connection with Me, and that’s why We’re working on making it the most important thing in your life. (16:128) It’s important to become a good taker of trouble, learn how to deal with it, and not let it tempt you to give up. It’s also important to keep remembering that eventually this life will be over… Ready to reap from it what you’ve sown? (16:129)

If you can’t trust too much in those around you down there, just remember that the most important One to put your trust in is Me, and all the Help from Heaven you can get! (16:132) Acceptance of others – no matter what state they’re in – is part of love… a great and important one. (16:135) How much more important getting strong in the spirit is than strength in the flesh, you should know by now. (16:136) If life is tough, remember that that’s supposed to make you stronger. And even if you don’t feel like it’s doing so in a physical aspect, remember that the most important one is the spiritual! (16:139) It’s important to learn not to gear your moods and spiritual conditions you’re in to the circumstances! (16:140) To handle what’s around you is an important factor to make it through the future. (16:141) If you feel like a stranger in this world, it’s a confirmation that you belong to Me, and your job for Me becomes more important than the ones for money. The follower of Mine in charge of and bound to money turned out to be My traitor, and that’s a warning to all My servants and should also be a sign to them not to let money become the most important thing in their lives. Becoming more dependent on My connection and communication with you, along with the power of prayer, is definitely a more important task concerning what’s coming than providing money for your physical support. (16:145) The “right here and now” is more visible, and thus more “important,” and relevant concerning most folks’ actions on the planet… but that’s the big difference between My followers and the large majority of the world population: My true followers’ actions don’t coincide with theirs, and neither will the results of fruits thereof. (16:146) That one initial wrong choice made by the first human couple, and the resulting transition of Heaven on Earth to three separate final conditions of hell on Earth, shows how significant choices are, and that major lesson of life to make the right ones. (16:152)

With circumstances and conditions around you getting darker, it becomes more and more important to gear your existence according to the heavenly Light through faith. What you can see through faith will be more important than what you see with your eyes in the time of the greatest darkness in history on its way. There’ll be more important things to focus on than what you’ll be able to see with your eyes. So, can you see the importance of faith in what your eyes can’t see above that of the physical vision of things around you? (16:155)

Remember the importance and significance of little things! And let it direct you toward the path and steps of humility, not being so concerned about accomplishments, achievements and success… (16:160) You only get what you ask for. That’s why prayer is such an important factor. Praying for a need to be fulfilled and quenched from Heaven is just one of the most important things in life, and one that makes the biggest difference between believers and unbelievers. (16:161) Consider the importance of being a rare voice of truth! With the greatest liar in the universe becoming the final world leader, it will make truth all the more precious. - More rare, but thus also more precious. So, see the path of truth through a world of lies as an important one! How important it is to distinguish and discern the Real Thing from the enemy’s fakes! The gift of discernment is developing into an important gift of the ability to distinguish the real from the fakes, the latter of which are extensively more numerous. (16:163) Prayer has become more important than ever. (16:164) While I’ve been giving you a lot about the importance of depending on Me, there’s also a lot that depends on you, like what you make out of having an all-powerful Master to depend on. (16:165) It’s fairly important to get prepared for the times of trouble up ahead; to realize that times haven’t gotten better, but worse, and prepare for even much worse times yet to come. It’s important to realize that the times of biggest trouble are up ahead, and prepare for them as much as you can. (16:166) It’s important to learn to make it through the tough times through the appliance of heavenly Help (16:170) Communication with Me is becoming more important than that with fellow humans… especially those that believe in and dedicate their lives to the System. (16:171) It’s pretty important to get into the Spirit in the mornings through prayer. (16:172) Having the world you live in being taken over by the enemy of your God, Savior and His followers is not a pleasant situation, but that’s where the effect of the choices of the majority of people comes to its result, and it’s just part of the important lesson for mankind to make the proper ones in the future… (2016:173) Even if your trials and tests are hard… still have the capacity to trust Me for it? It’s an important test, because, as you should know from what I’ve told you many times: The times coming will be a lot harder and tougher than what you’ve already experienced and gone through. The most important factor is by far not the comfortability or pleasantness of circumstances, whether momentary or to come, but the security, safety and protection factor, which will be a lot more secured the closer you stick to Me and stay on My Wavelength of communication with you. (2016:175) If I’m becoming the most important Factor in your life in order for you to overcome all the negative conditions and circumstances in the world around you… hey, trust Me that that’s a good sign! To put Me and the Father in the first place in your heart and life, which We’ve said pretty much from the beginning that it’s the first commandment and most important thing… When folks and circumstances around you aren’t what you can rely on anymore… trust Me: it’s a good sign for Me and your heavenly Help to finally reach the point of importance in your life It should have! (2016:177) If loving your Lord and God has been named by Me to be the first and most important commandment, see whatever draws you closer to Me as an advantage, even if at first it may seem like a huge disadvantage! (2016:178) There’s a more important level of knowledge and wisdom and insight needed than what your own understanding would be able to come up with. (2016:180) Check Me out whether circumstances are more important, or listening to Me and getting soaked up with My input! (2016:186) When you don’t know where to go, doesn’t that remind you of the importance of My leading and guidance of you? – That you need Me for getting a clue about where to go? (2016:187)

Making what’s going on Up Here happening and working inside you is so much more important than just letting affect you what’s going on around you. (2016:188) To keep your focus on the ultimate heavenly part beyond is a task of faith, but that’s one of the reasons faith is so important to make it through what’s coming; faith to believe in Something beyond that which you can see or hear or feel around you in the physical! (2016:193) Believing is more important than seeing and only accepting as reality what your eyes can perceive! (2016:194) If it tempts to trouble you a bit, that you can’t make it without taking time to receive My input, remember that My coming to and birth on Earth where the manifestations of the Word by which all things were created, becoming flesh. In other words, if the Word and receiving My input strikes you as something that might not be appreciated or accepted by others, or recognized as something important, and those thoughts and feelings make you worry, can’t you see that this could only be an attack of the enemy to crush your faith in the importance of it? (2016:195) If I’m not supplying and providing the things you need and want right away, it must be that faith and patience are more important needs, and that My heavenly input is more important for you than the things that would make life easier for you. (2016:196)

The most important thing is that you manage to focus Up Here through faith, beyond the state down there that’s heading in the direction of temporal hell on Earth. See faith as something more important than knowledge! (2016:199) Even hearing from Me isn’t quite as important as asking Me for the Help you need! So, remember that even hearing from Me isn’t as important as asking Me for what you need – and that’s usually provided through Help from Up Here. Sometimes they’re other factors I see as more important for you to grab hold of, like patience, acceptance of others… not just the worries of how you’ll make it through the physical process of life. Consider the spiritual processes and progress as more important, if God Himself’s a Spirit! When things aren’t working out as easily and swiftly as you might be hoping and expecting, it’s a signal from Up Here that you need a bit more trust and patience for Our Force of Help to come to pass in your life; and respecting that as of greater importance than your own management of circumstances is important. (2016:201) Faith in the invisible is becoming more important than ever, because visible circumstances around you will reach their worst historical state and condition. (2016:207) When it comes to the words of man, they differ so much from their actions, that the action has become a much more significant ingredient compared to his mere words, which he may stick to or just decide he won’t. Folks too often simply don’t do as they say. That’s why it’s more important to be a sample than a living sermon. (2016:208) To ask for My Help and expect Me to do it through you is an act of faith, and one reason why faith is so important. (17:4) Remember that all your actions will bear their results, and thus it’s important to keep an eye on what sort of action you’re putting forth! (17:5) The less worldly input, the more space and vacuum is there for the much more important and edifying heavenly Input. (17:8) The most important thing: loving Me and your neighbor as yourself; but then again, it’s better to hear from Me, even if you don’t manage. At least I can remind you of shortcomings that require some NWO. (17:9) When the Word of God was made flesh, it signified the importance to pay attention to the One Whose Words ultimately all things came from. (17:14) Patience is such an important gift from Above: “Wait and see”… the Real Thing, instead of the enemy’s concoctions! (17:17) Remember that the strengthening of your faith – through its tests – is one of the most important processes of preparation for the times to come! (17:22) Just because no one else is putting their priorities on communication with Me doesn’t mean you’re wasting your time. It all depends on what one considers most important and who or what is taking the first place in their lives. (17:24) What’s important is, not to stay in a passive mode. (17:26) What’s more important to you? What you want from life, or what I want from you? (17:32) It’s important you’re getting a realistic view of the state of the world; and the troubles you’re having to face each day are just glimpses and tastes of the large trouble up ahead. (17:33)

Learning not to be concerned about the opinions of others around, and not to get trapped into the groove of man-pleasing is one of the most important lessons concerning doing things God’s way, not people’s or one’s own. (17:34) Useful action is an important utility to stay alive and supporting oneself. It just depends on what sort of action and support, whether I also can bless it, and it’s not just being “blessed” and rewarded by the world around you. (17:36) Remember the importance of being and making a difference! It’s important to be sure of the right and proper motivation in My followership. (17:37) It was a bit easier when you still had a name for yourself that gave you that sensation of importance… Now that you’re pretty much down to the level of nothing… or no-one, you’re getting closer to the stage of knowing what humility really is. What’s important when you don’t have a clue how you’ll make it is to put your confidence in Me, that I’ll be the One to help you make it, once you ask Me to through prayer! (17:47) That's why faith is so important: Have your mind geared toward the truly lasting Things, not the temporal and physically visible things down there that are in a downhill movement thanks to the one temporarily in charge of it! Keep your faith in Us instead of what you can behold with your eyes all around you! That's what faith is all about. So, make it the pretty much most important factor in your life! (17:48) If times seem to you like the most disastrous of your life, take it as important preparation for the toughest in all of history! (17:49)

What’s more important to you? The Father’s and My will for you, or your own? (17:52) No support from your fellow humans? – A confirmation of the importance of the necessity to start leaning on Me instead. (17:55)

Remember who's in charge down there, and why accordingly it's important to make the right choices in life! (17:58) Take rough times in a world that’s not your home as the reminder of the important fact that proves it isn’t! Through depending on My Word you’re becoming more aware of Its importance. (17:62) Just as I had to tell My disciples to let the kids come to Me, because any other stuff wasn’t that important… well, that should give you an idea how important kids are to Me. (17:67) If My Word is the beginning of creation and of life, it’s pretty much the beginning and Source of everything that matters and counts. So, can you blame Me for letting it become the most important factor in your life, when it’s pretty much the Factor all things come from? (17:68) That’s why heavenly vision’s becoming so important: It’ll take a lot of faith to overcome the temporal hellish state of the world, keep that heavenly vision and share it with the receptive ones. (17:69) Cleansing is an important overall necessity and required process in the world you’re in. (17:76) The most important thing to remember is that it will take the mind-gear of depending on miracles to make it through what’s to come. (17:80) When it comes down to love, remember acceptance! - An important part of it! Remember, I’m your Teacher of the Lesson of Life! What could be more important in that School of Life, than learning what the Creator of it all wants to teach you, wants you to learn? (17:82) Our connection is simply becoming more and more important in your life; both, with the increasing troubles to come, and the less factors around you that you can gear and direct your life toward. If I happen to become the most important Thing in your life, simply because I’m the last One left that you can rely on, you won’t be the first in history. (17:83) Incapability is there to remind you of the need of heavenly Help you can get for nothing but asking for It through prayer. So, don’t neglect that spiritual task - more important that any of the physical ones you have to do! (17:84) It’s important to keep on My Wavelength. Especially when you feel like you’re unable to make it. (17:85) Even love, the way it’s meant to be, isn’t quite possible without faith and believing in the God of Love. So, as far as the temporal world and condition you’re living in right now is concerned, faith is in some aspects more important than “the greatest of these,” which will simply be more permanent and lasting. It’s just about the most important thing to hang on to in that life down there. (17:91)

The reason why faith is becoming more important in these times than love, the greatest, is that you’re entering the times I prophesied, when “the love of many will wax cold (Mt.24:12).” And it becomes simply more important to just even keep that faith in love, which is God, and which all around you seems to be disappearing, along with the faith in Him. It’s becoming practically the most important for you to hear from Me, in order to keep your faith! (17:93) One of the reasons why prayer is just about the most important task and thing to do: asking for Help against the evil one, and to learn to rise above! It’s not another sermon the world needs, but living samples of faith. That’s why human actions are more important than their words. (17:94) Prayer is an important ingredient, as you can tell from the negative results of neglecting that task of true believers. (17:95) When you neglect important factors like prayer, to what extent can you imagine the enemy goes to in order to hinder you and prevent you from it? While trying to weaken the effect of negative influences on you as much as you can, perhaps recognizing that dealing with them in the right manner, instead of seeking to escape their effect on you, might just result in an important bit of positive outcome… (17:96) It’s important to get into My groove and onto My wavelength when the day starts. Make faith the major force of your life, because it will be the most important! (17:99) Acceptance of the way others are is an important part of that unconditional love that makes you even capable of loving your enemies. (17:101) See the spiritual gifts as more important factors to make it through what’s coming than your physical needs! When the ego’s the most important part of someone, there’s little chance for them to spot their own wrongdoings and sins, and thus the need for Salvation from their eventual effects and causes. (17:102) Let My connection with you be the encouraging and strengthening factor, and remember that it’s an important part of making it through times to come! (17:103) For wives, their husbands’ actions are evidently quite important. You can tell that wives’ attitudes are often quite related to Martha’s attitude toward her sister Mary, when she criticized her spending time listening to Me, instead of helping her to cook… But which did I consider more important? (17:104) See dependence on Me as important part of the necessary preparation for the dark days to come! It’s the invisible inside of the body that plays the most important part of how the outside will be doing. Remember the importance of faith during the times to come! To stay focused on My Light is important to do without the distractions of the environment, situations and circumstances turning darker. Don’t see your weakened physical state as a disadvantage, but as important preparation to get you in the right groove to make it through what’s coming! Make the Holy Spirit the important Factor that will enable you to do what you might feel like you can’t! (17:105) It’s important to keep your vision and focus directed Up Here - the positive side of the Spirit World. (17:106) It’s important for you to strengthen your faith each morning, and not let your days be ruled by the physical circumstances. What’s going on in the Spirit World is more relevant, more effective in the end, and thus, more important than the physical happenings in the dimension of the flesh. The Standard of Love is much more important than the momentary earthly standards of wealth and materialism. (17:108) The spirit is more important than the material state or shape of a country. To stay in tune with Me and open-minded for My leading and guidance will be another important factor in the darkest times of history that will represent the greatest need of My Light. (17:111) Sometimes other factors are more important than action. Like making sure you’re on the right channel first. Plus, being aware of the things your enemy’s up to in order to hinder you or cause you to go in the wrong direction… Listening to Me: one of the most important tools and spiritual weapons to make it through the Endtime with. (17:112) When life becomes a tough one, it’s a sign to teach the importance of the superior Strength of the Spirit vs. that of the flesh. A lot of your choices depend on what sort of change you welcome. Another reason and factor of importance of the necessity of staying tuned to Our leading and guidance - the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Remember what should be your daily goal and mental destination: the Spirit! Put all the other aspects, conditions and factors on the lower side of less importance, and trust Me instead for taking care of them!

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God (Mt.6:33)” means to put Our spiritual World - the World of Our Spirit - in the first place of your importance, and give our Reign of the Spirit the priority. Realize the importance and significance of spiritual vision due to the priority of spirit over the flesh! (17:115) Action and samples are so much more important than sermons. Especially when none of the listeners make any effort to act on what they’ve just heard. (17:117) It’s important that you accept My will for you above your own. (17:118) Remember the importance of a heavenly viewpoint! - Or begin to realize it, if it’s not quite there yet! (17:119) Prayer is a largely important factor you’ll wish not to have neglected. Don’t forget prayer as one of the most important tasks of believers! Remember the importance of your relationship with your Creator and your Savior! This is one of the most important tasks of true believers: to set their relationship with Me and the Father on first place of importance, since without it, you can’t even expect your human relationships to work out flawlessly! It’s the spiritual action that counts the most to Me. And that’s where the faith and trust come in to believe that the Spirit is simply more important than action in the flesh. (17:121)

See communication with Me as a life-important factor, especially regarding the times coming when it will be impossible to make it through without! Just keep remembering that your sample’s important! What you are and how you portray yourself to others… it’s a bigger and more important job and task than it often seems you’re aware of. (17:123) See the mode of appreciation and gratitude as an important one! (17:124) With the weird acts and behavior of worldly folks around you, it’s just becoming less and less like your “home.” That’s why it’s important to keep your focus directed on your true Home through faith! (17:125) Accepting folks as they are with all their weaknesses is part of the important lessons of life. (17:126) Spiritual vision’s becoming more important for those who want to make it through the times of trouble coming, those who’ll have an important job to do for Me. (17:127) The importance of desperation will become more realized through its coming necessity. (17:128) If you want to be recognized as a follower of “Mac Positive,” it’s important you stay on His positive wavelength, and don’t allow the influences of “Mc Negative” to affect you. Seeing lack of appreciation in others should be a reminder of the importance of appreciation to you! My relationship with you is becoming more important to you, and that’s a great asset. Especially in sight of the times to come, when those who are Mine won’t make it anymore without My daily personal leadings and guidance of their lives through the darkest passage of history! (17:129) I’ve just got to become the major Factor of Importance in your life. You’ve just got to put Me first! See My job for you as something more important in your life than your own enjoyment of it! That’s what’s putting Me first. (17:130)

The most important task to prepare you for what’s to come is your service to Me… (17:131) Not feeling so hot should cause you to take note of the vital importance of getting onto My Wavelength. It’s important, if not vital, to stay connected with Me, and it’s going to become more and more important as times grow darker. To make it victoriously and cheerfully through the days, it’s important to get onto the positive, divine, spiritual Wavelength, and as far away from the effect of unpleasant circumstances and conditions around you. (17:132) Faith and trust in Me are becoming the most important factors to see you through what’s coming, and thus, the most important task you could think of is to keep them alive and growing through that “Thing” that made all things grow and come to live to begin with: My Word. Even if others - including those around you - cannot grasp the importance of your communication with Me, it’s important you keep that factor in mind yourself! Remember that with the change of conditions, the biggest and most important change is the one in you to get ready for it! (17:134)

Faith becoming more important than circumstances would be something I’d call a goal worth trying to attain and aim for. Faith beyond circumstances, their impact and importance… believing and trusting in My in spite of no matter what. If faith takes the role above your circumstances in levels of importance and impact, I’d call that getting closer to what I set up as your personal goal for Me to reach.

Faith in spite of no matter what happens is part of that process of giving Me the first place, when faith takes over the importance of circumstances. (17:135) “Preparation” is an important topic in order to grasp the seriousness of the necessity to get ready for the most evil times of history. (17:139) Learning to make the best and whatever you can out of crisis situations and circumstances is just about the most important thing to learn to prepare you for what’s coming. (17:141) Sometimes, what’s important is to learn to see the positive in the negative. (17:143) The most important part to learn to accept in life is what I allow to happen to you, trusting Me by faith that I know what’s best for you, even if the enemy will try to convince you of the opposite with his negative input and doubts. Keep fighting for your faith, knowing that it’ll be the most important issue and gift to see you through the dark times coming! (17:144) It’s more important to Me than ever before to be and use a different kind, getting so close to our enemy’s ultimate reign down there, and his level of influence over the masses having grown to unprecedented proportions! The spirit will become the most important, rarest and thus, most precious ever, along with all the values of the spirit that will have to manage it through the time of the devil reigning down there in the flesh… (17:147) The distractions from My channel are a natural way and course of life, and to learn to stay in tune with Me in spite of them, that’s the big challenge, and one of the big, important things to learn. (17:148)

…Impossibilities I want to enable you to do the humanly impossible, but you must remember that it is I Who enable you, that it's nothing you can do of yourselves. So, when you're faced with an impossible situation, that's the moment when it's time to let Me take over. (II:248) If you keep on believing, all things are possible, and nothing, I really mean nothing, shall be impossible! (II:322) Things that are impossible with men are possible with God, so, don't limit Me and My actions to your mind gear of impossibilities, but make it happen by having the faith for it to happen! (II:339) Remember to focus on Me and on the knowledge of My Love, and that through this, nothing is impossible to you! (II:351) The greater the "impossibility," the greater the odds are against Me, the more I enjoy the challenge. (II:387) I love to blow your minds with things you previously thought impossible. (II:427) There's really nothing impossible to Me! Come out of your finite and limited world and breathe a whiff of My heavenly, fresh air of "no impossibilities" and "no limits!" (II:460) Only My supernatural Love can enable anyone to do the humanly impossible: to love, forgive and embrace your enemies, those who hurt you, those who wrong you; to look past and beyond all circumstances, to never stop loving in spite of anything. (II:476) Believe that nothing will be impossible; no obstacle too hard to overcome, no adversary will be invincible for you! (II:568) It seems impossible? Make it possible, by believing anyway! You can make it possible, you can make it happen through your faith, because all things are possible to him that believes. (III:78) I specialize in the impossible and that which doesn't make any sense to you. (III:94) If I told you that you can do it and nothing is impossible to him that believeth, then trust and believe that it is so, regardless of appearances of circumstances! (III:99)

There is a difference between believers and the rest of the world, and that's their little strength (Rev.3:8), their faith to believe Me for the seemingly impossible, and their readiness, their willingness to be used of Me and have Me work in them and through them and do with them whatever I see fit. Don’t allow the enemy to rob you of that little strength, that little light of faith of yours, to believe Me for the impossible, against all odds, against any apparent circumstances! (III:227) A real leader and world changer is one who makes the best out of the circumstances he finds himself in; he trusts Me for what I'm doing, knowing that with Me, nothing shall be impossible. (III:238) I always see possibilities and hope where you see none. (III:367) It’s better to just lay all that ego-business aside, keep looking unto Me and do what’s humanly impossible, in spite of all your weaknesses. (III:385) Expect miracles and the seemingly impossible! (III:447) Nothing is impossible, and I can avail Myself of any means in order to bring about My will… (III:449) What they call a “mission impossible” is pretty much on a daily schedule for Me, and I’m trying to bust their mental confines of “impossible,” because for Me, there is no such thing. (III:552) It was “impossible” for the Earth to hang there for days without the sun and the rest of the stars… All it took was Me being there and upholding it, making the impossible possible. (IV:54) You’ve got to have faith in things beyond those which the eye can see, and beyond things that are thought humanly impossible. If you’re going to believe that outrageously impossible happy ending for the sad story the history of this world so far has been, then you can also start believing Me for smaller “impossibilities” today, and allow Me to work contrary to natural reasoning in your life. (IV:69) Prove to them that “impossible” has no meaning to Me! (IV:90) Fellowship with My spirits, and let them guide you and strengthen you and empower you to do that which you will find otherwise humanly impossible! (IV:127) Isn’t love a worthier cause to live for than money? They all say it’s impossible. How would you like to be the one to prove them wrong? (IV:136) The thing about impossible situations is that you need Me to help you cope with them, and they’re the only ones you can’t pat yourself on the back for having managed them. (IV:251) The camp of believers is divided into those who claim that God cannot change His own rules He has laid down for man, and those who believe that He can, and that nothing is impossible with Him. (IV:326) The more “impossible” a situation seems, the greater the miracle that’s required, and thus the greater the amount of My Power that will have to be released and displayed on your behalf, the greater the extent to which I can go to work in your life, and thereby be glorified in it. (IV:346) I delight in circumstances deemed “impossible.” (IV:432) You feel overwhelmed and incapable, paralyzed by the sheer rational impossibility of even trying to tackle all that’s before you, with nothing much left but the option to trust that I’m going to have to do it somehow, anyway, as I always have for you… You’re not to trust in what others say and claim or think is impossible, but just to take My Word for it, that if it is My wish to prove them all wrong by means of the things I will do in your life, then it shall be so, no matter what anyone might do or say. (11:13) I have put tasks before My people that were impossible for them to accomplish on their own: I’ve put them before seas that they were to cross on dry land, put them before countries filled with giants that they were to conquer, put them before armies that were too overwhelming for them to defeat on their own… I’ve given them crosses to carry that would have been too heavy and too hard for any man or woman to bear on their own except through the Strength of the One Who carried the one significant cross that would enable them to do all these humanly impossible things. (11:39) It’s impossible to serve God and Mammon. There’ll never be enough time for both! (11:50) Without faith it remains impossible to please God, because in order to have any kind of relationship going with Him, you must believe that He is real and “a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (11:102)

Feeling incapable? Try cling to Me! Let Me enable you and make all things possible that may seem impossible to you right now! (15:193) As far as physically impossible challenges: Well, that’s the way We work. Not needing the usual scenarios, but rather the different kind, the unusual, and even unlikely ones. “Impossible?” – A challenge for Us! And it should be for you… let it raise your faith! (2016:55) Don’t fall into the enemy’s trap to view all conditions around you as impossibilities, but take it as a challenge to see what I can do for you through your faith! (2016:62) Getting rid of My folks down there has always been the enemy’s principal action through possessing a significant ruler, and it will be his most powerful position and strike in history during the Great Tribulation. So, if that feels like a just about impossible situation to make it through… well, it will be, unless folks learn to completely rely on My Help and Strength from Above! So, even though it looks like an impossible situation coming to make it through, remember My attitude regarding that word “impossible!” (2016:90) That little taste and groove of “impossible” for you is just part of preparation for the darkest times of history when it’ll take miracles to make it through each day. - Something to get you into the groove of “All things are possible to him that believes,” instead of relying on your own carnal abilities. (2016:92) Just keep your faith and trust in Me, that I’ll manage to do the things for you that currently seem difficult or impossible! Let that be a lesson for you of how I manage to deal with “impossibilities” you’re having to face, and don’t let them discourage you, but put that faith and trust in Me to strengthen and lift up your courage, outlook and confidence in the fact that with My Help things are going to work out! (2016:99) If there’s a seemingly impossible situation coming up, just remember that “all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark.9:23)! Just take it as a challenge of faith and as training for situations coming up that will seem even more impossible to make it through in the near future! (2016:100) The more “impossible” it seems, the more obvious it becomes who’ll have to do it, or the faith in Whom you’ll need, in order to. (2016:101) Learning to rise above and overcome seeming impossibilities is what difficult circumstances and challenges are all about! (2016:103)

With a time-frame that will require miracles to make it through, you should just get used to relying on them to help you make it through the seemingly impossible conditions. (2016:128) The more impossible it looks and seems to you to make it through, the more of a challenge for Me, and the more obvious the resulting miracle power. (2016:139) “Impossible” situations are the best preparation for the times to come. (2016:152) If there are worries that things might not work out or go tragically wrong, just trust Us, that We’re able to see you through whatever bizarre or seemingly impossible situation! Don’t let the enemy drag you down with his “impossible” grooves! “Impossibilities” were some of My favorite challenges even during My time on Earth, and it’s still exciting for Us Up Here to do miracles for you folks down there. (16:156) Conditions impossible to handle? Take them as perfect preparation for what’s to come! (2016:159) What the future has to offer will make it impossible without praying and using Heaven’s Help to make it. (2016:170) Impossible situation? – My type of situation! (2016:177) When things seem impossible, it’s the time to test your faith in the truth and fact of Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Since “I can do all things” basically means: There is nothing impossible! – Not for you, if you have that faith that I can do anything not only for you, but also through you. It looks like an impossible situation that requires miracles for you to make it through. But isn’t depending on miracles what I did and had to, My disciples did and had to, and all My true followers through the ages had to, and did. So, can you? Can you let Me do things through you that you can’t? That’s the question, the answer to which will determine whether you’ll make it through the times to come, or won’t. (2016:181)

The seemingly impossible situations teach you to have faith of the sort you’ll need for what’s coming. (2016:187) When the impossible situations are taking over, that’s the time for utter dependence on the miracles and Power from Above, not anymore one’s own physical capacities. (2016:190) Making it without heavenly Help will pretty much turn into an impossibility. (2016:191) Independence is an earthly considered virtue, but dependence on Me and all the Help from Above is what we’d consider a true virtue Up Here for our folks down there, since earthly circumstances and conditions will make it virtually impossible to make it without heavenly Help, protection and supply. (2016:193) I’m allowing it to be fairly impossible to put your trust and confidence in your fellow humans, because the One Whose Help and support will see you through what’s comin is Me and Our heavenly host. (2016:196) Remember that one of the great assets of faith is the capacity of things that unbelievers claim as impossible! In other words: miracles. So, get used to the gear-set of miracles and getting into the groove of doing things supposedly impossible, or having them done for you by Me and My Helpers! (17:9) The seemingly impossible situations are reminders of your need of the Help from Above. (17:22) The devil will manage to eliminate My believers and followers from the face of the Earth, which he'll occupy for that time of the end as a physical dictator, the Antichrist. No wonder many Christians believe that I'll be coming back before that time to save them from it... It hardly seems survivable for any folks, and practically and physically impossible. So, if you want to make it, put Me to the test of how I handle the seemingly impossible! (17:49) To make something or someone of things or folks that no one would have expected: Maybe one of the demonstrations of the Father’s Power to make something out of nothing, and doing what earthly folks would have considered impossible. Well, that’s the nature of miracles. The production of the previously considered impossible. (17:53) To make it through the humanly impossible, you must learn to rely on the Strength and Power from Above! (17:61) If folks around you are making it nearly impossible for you to make it, see it as part of preparation process for the time ahead, when fellow humans will make it the toughest ever for folks like you to make it! (17:81) Remember that I like to confound and surprise people with unexpected results… the things that seem so impossible to be done by someone weak, that it’s just obviously a miracle, and thus an even much greater testimony and sample of the Powers and Forces from Above at work than what folks could possibly accomplish in their own strengths and capacities! (17:82)

Even if it seems quite “impossible” to make it through what’s coming, remember that that’s part of the way of faith: to learn to deal with things which to unbelievers and the faithless seem impossible… but not to those who believe in My Words: “All things are possible to him that believeth (Lk.9:23).” (17:87) Keep trusting in Me, more than relying on what’s going on around you! That’s the faith to see you through, and thus help others to make it through the seemingly impossible conditions to overcome. (17:108) Seeming impossibilities make you stretch your faith and recognize your dependence on Me to pull you out of a seemingly hopeless situation. (17:114) Remember there’s nothing impossible with Me on your side! - And “All things are possible to him that believeth!” (17:116) Even if aspects look impossible to make it through, trust in the fact that with Me, nothing shall be impossible (Mt.17:20), and remember that “all things are possible to him that believeth (Lk.9:23);” so it all pretty much depends on your faith, and “according to your faith be it unto you (Mt.9:29).” (17:118) See communication with Me as a life-important factor, especially regarding the times coming when it will be impossible to make it through without! (17:123) My Way has always been quite different from the common way, and I always like to defy and prove the opposite of what the devil proclaims and makes appear as “impossible.” Take the “impossible” as our challenge! Yours to show the faith in Me that I can handle them for and through you and on your behalf. (17:128)

Remember that supposedly “impossible” situations and circumstances are My favorite challenge! What’s considered “impossible” according to the standards and abilities of Man reveal the fact that another Force and Power’s at work than the ones they’re used to down there. (17:130) The “impossible” times are coming, and Who do you need to make it through them? - The One Who promised that “All things shall be possible to him that believeth (Mk.9:23).” (17:135) Impossible situation? - Definitely requires prayer! Remember: seemingly impossible situations for My disciples and followers are one of My favorite challenges! (17:137) To make it through times coming will be impossible unless you avail yourself of My Power to deal with the impossible… that Stuff that the miracles come from. (17:139) Finding yourself confronted with a seemingly impossible task is just one of those challenges that require miracles and heavenly Help. (17:143)

…Improvement Mourn for the sorry state of the world and even your own sometimes, because these times of contemplation make you realize what things are not the way they should be, and your need to improve them with My Help. (I:589) While some things seem to have gotten better on the surface, technology has improved, progressed and developed, and so have commodities, enabling people to live at much greater ease than ever before, which again enables them to put much greater emphasis on superficial things like their looks than ever before, which may give a certain appearance of genuine improvement; when it comes to a good, deep look beneath the surface, there is actually no genuine improvement of life there. As people are finding out: with all the devices they're inventing to save time, yet they always seem to be running out of time and seem to have less time than ever. A lot of people may think that they are better than their forefathers, that they may have "evolved" and progressed, but an objective, un-biased look and comparison might tell a different story, in which many of those who have lived before would shake their heads at the arrogance of today's population, to actually fall for such a gross deception to think that they have improved, when, according to lasting standards and values, it is rather plain that man has deteriorated. A lot of people may think that they are better than their forefathers, that they may have "evolved" and progressed, but an objective, un-biased look and comparison might tell a different story, in which many of those who have lived before would shake their heads at the arrogance of today's population, to actually fall for such a gross deception to think that they have improved, when, according to lasting standards and values, it is rather plain that man has deteriorated. (II:445) There's always room for improvement, no matter how right on you or your movement may be. There's always counsel and help you can receive from others, that you should not be too proud or stuck-on-yourself to accept. (III:15) Patience and prayer is what you can contribute to the improvement of a situation. (III:47) Find out what you can do in order to improve a situation, and don’t just assume that everything is going to get better all by itself! You need to contribute your part in order for everything to get better and every day to get better. (III:78) When your capacity to love has reached its limits, you cannot love beyond that, and this should show you where you're having to improve; where you lack, and where you need to acquire more of what you're lacking. (III:152) Sometimes I draw your attention to a needed change or improvement by showing you something better than what you have; a need to learn from someone else who has gone further than you. It's a way I use to spur you on to growth and progress. (III:220) To become bitter and sarcastic about everything is definitely not My solution, nor My way. Like this, they become part of the problem, instead of part of the solution; part of the negative forces, instead of part of the positive forces that are supposed to make a difference. (III:340) The first step needed in order to bring about any kind of improvement is for somebody to see the need. (III:427) There’s a whole lot of room for improvement in life, a whole lot more holiness to be attained, a whole lot of cleaning up to do yet. (III:429)

People have not really improved since biblical times, as much as they would want to believe it. Unfortunately, by creating his own version of an improved and enhanced reality, man has gotten even further away from Me. (III:515) The Big Picture is still in its imperfect, relative beginning stages, and there’s lots of room for improvement. One of the obstacles that prevent change is the inability to see the need for positive change, progress and improvement. When people think that things are just fine the way they are, they don’t see, desire or pray for improvement. To think all things are okay as they are, no improvement needed, would be a fatally flawed attitude! The only glimpse of hope anybody has is recognizing the need for Me to fill. Otherwise, I won’t be able to change or improve anything. (III:520) Diversions aren’t going to solve any problems nor make any definite improvements in the state of things, but your prayers are! (III:536) Just walking the treadmill of doing what everybody else does, in order to keep the machine running, won’t improve the world. (III:548) It’s a sacrifice of love that you make in order to help others do better: situation improvement. By approaching certain people on the possibility of improving their behavior, you’re ultimately improving your situation. (III:578) I have been blessing you to the extent that I have kept you alive and going. But if it causes you to fail to see areas and ways in which you could improve and do things better, if it causes you to just settle for what you’ve got without seeking or desiring any further growth or progress. (III:591) See each change as a new challenge for improvement! (III:605) Things won’t just improve by themselves if you won’t do anything about them! (IV:7) The world is a mess, but you need to ask yourself, what is the best thing you can possibly do in order to improve things? (IV:20)

My Power to truly alter reality and really bring some improvement and some real light and hope to brighten up the darkness requires faith. (IV:67) Things in this world deteriorate and fall apart… They don’t improve, as the evolutionists claim. That’s one of the qualities of this world, and Satan is trying to create an appearance of the opposite, by creating artificial enhancements on the surface, that create the illusion of improvement, while the real body underneath keeps deteriorating and slowly rotting away. (IV:85) Wisdom is in recognizing that I can do more than you, and that you can reach farther by availing yourself of My Help, instead of insisting on doing whatever you can in your own strength to mend or improve a situation. (IV:101) Our interest in bridging the gap between the two worlds is primarily for your sakes. You are the ones who need help, and who could be doing better, and that are in need of improvement, and We can show you how to get it. (IV:147) Prayer is communication of the most efficient kind in existence that is available to man, and not only that, but it’s also a device that will enhance and improve all your other communications with your fellow humans as well. (IV:170) There’s lots of room for improvement, and thus, lots of reasons to stay close to Me and seek Me for solutions to life’s problems at hand. (IV:183) You may not be a perfect vessel and have some flaws, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t be working on them, or that I won’t be working on your improvement. (IV:184) I’ll keep working on improving and enhancing you and your usefulness to Me, not least of all for the sake of your own fulfillment and happiness. (IV:193) If you thank Me for your situation and circumstances instead of complaining about them, you’re bound to improve things. (IV:198)

Never take for granted that your current procedure or state is just perfectly fine without any further need of improvement! As long as the machine keeps rolling somehow and puttering away, everyone thinks that things are just fine and okay, no improvement needed. (IV:210) It’s not so much the circumstances that require improvement and a positive change as one’s own attitudes and heart- and mind-sets. (IV:225)

Some things do get better. While the world keeps deteriorating, I preserve unto Myself a special remnant that I refine unto Myself so that they, contrary to the course of the rest of all things, do improve and get better over time. That’s where it pays to trust in and see My wisdom in things, to look out for the little details… The tiny little improvements that may not be quite obvious to the eye, but that are nonetheless there. If you look closer – and, if it were possible, from a neutral, unbiased viewpoint – you will actually see that improvement, maturation, progress and growth has taken place, even if the overall picture may somewhat strike you as worse… Even with all the constant worsening of the world, I can effect some improvements within some chosen regions and aspects of the world, and I keep painting and building and establishing My Big Picture within the crumbling picture of the Matrix. Look at the miracles of progress and improvement that I manage to bring about in spite of and even in the midst of all that decay and deterioration! Instead of joining the rest of the devil’s matrix in the process of decay, those who cling to Me and keep their focus on Me, actually improve. (IV:240) The question you will want to answer with a definite “yes” some day when you’ll get Here will be, “Have I done all I possibly could?” And in order to make sure that this will be the case, I have to draw your attention – in sometimes painful ways, granted – to the areas in which you could improve and that are hindering you from reaching that goal. (IV:242) Others' sample may not be perfect, but what sort of an excuse does that give you for not working on improving yours? (IV:259)

An ideal solution from My point of view would be if each party would make moves toward improvement in the particular area they’re falling short in, instead of presenting two different extremes... You can’t do anything about improving their part. But you can do something about improving yours, and it may be equally difficult for you to improve in your weak area as it may be for them to improve in theirs. (IV:260) I don’t mind folks showing off a little bit what they can do and what good ideas they can come up with in order to genuinely improve things. (IV:270) It’s your heart and the way you see things that needs improvement, more than the actual circumstances themselves. (IV:425) I am capable of improving you to a degree you wouldn’t think possible. (IV:451) If you never needed improvement and the assurance of improvement, your need for Me would be obsolete. That’s why folks who figure they’ve got everything they need, no improvement required, have no interest in Me… (IV:487) Seeing the error of your ways is the beginning of improvement and wisdom, and so it is essential for My purpose for you that you do. (IV:532) Often it is only the fear of judgment or of things going wrong that will give people the incentive to seek change or improvement, without which there is stagnation. (11:4) There’s always room for improvement. “Why bring about improvement by way of the world’s deterioration?” you wonder. Well, what better way to show up a lack of a certain thing than by having it right in your face? What better way to make you realize the need for improvement, than by conveying to you the need for it? (11:82) Yes, things are a mess, but there’s hope. Hope that things will not remain the same; that while they may be getting worse and worse temporarily, they will suddenly be improved and salvaged by Me. (11:87) Becoming aware of a need is the first step toward improvement. The best thing that can happen is your realization of the need, which will help and cause you to focus on potential solutions, things you could do in order to improve the situation… (11:93)

I’m not talking about self-perfection or -improvement, but when it is I Who wants to work on you to improve, purify and make you better, it’s a different story, and you should yield to it and quietly allow Me to do My work. (11:110) Improvement and progress are things everyone is striving for, unless they view life as a senseless, meaningless game. (2012:73)

Learn the lessons about lifting and raising up the quality of personality: Get better! – A better person, as well as better prepared for a state of the world that won’t get any better. (2015:248) I know you’re not perfect, and don’t expect it from you; but it’s good to recognize your faults and the fact that you need some improvement and positive changes. If you’re not happy with the way your kids are acting, let it be a reminder of the fact that your behavior might need some improvement as a child of the Father, too!

Staying humble, and thus, not so critical of others is definitely a character improvement. Wanna try it? (2016:16) If things around you aren’t perfect, maybe a bit of gratitude in spite of it will improve the situation. (2016:21) Instead of complaining about the current state of things and your own situation, develop the mode of helping others to improve theirs, by giving them a glimpse of My Light, My Love and truth! (2016:35) If things aren’t perfect, ask yourself what you can do to improve whatever you manage! Remember that changing the world means doing what you can to improve things around you and make whatever you can of your surroundings better! The mess the world around you’s in ought to be a challenge for you to do what you can in order to improve things! Don’t see yourself as a victim of your circumstances, but do the best you can to improve them! (2016:40) Having to deal with your weakness and incapability to deal with it is a sign pointing towards where you need improvement! (2016:44)

It’s hard to trust in the rough times being a manner of improvement, but if I tell you so, could you come up with the capacity to believe Me? (2016:48) If life seems unbearable for you and you need some improvement, well… do what you can to make it better and don’t become depressed by the circumstances! (2016:54) Certain factors of attitudes must change and improve. It’s the rough times that help work on and improve bad attitudes. There are things that need improvement, and sometimes, without it, one cannot be found ready for his heavenly rest. (2016:66)

Learning how not to behave is unfortunately a lesson many will only learn from the way others behave toward them. All it can teach you is the necessity to improve your own act, and if you can’t learn well from your own mistakes and faults, maybe having to go through those of others around you will eventually wind up teaching you some of it! So, don’t feel too sorry about yourself about the way others treat you, but try to improve your own behavior first of all! (2016:71)

Major improvement is there to make in order for earthly human relationships to get closer to heavenly relationships. (2016:83)

So, improvement’s on the to-do list… Apart from the whole world around you obviously getting worse, what matters is not so much the world around you, but how you’re coping with and doing in it. (2016:89) There’s some improvement and changes for the better to make. – Another few lessons to learn before the School of Life is over. (2016:108) Don’t forget that there’s Something Better expecting you, compared to down there, and you shouldn’t just get prepared for it yourself, but make the coming of the Hereafter part of your message, your sample, and whatever you’ve got to portray and signify to others! Let them know about Heaven! – The better Thereafter! (2016:134) See the improvement it gives you when you take that time to tune in with Me? (2016:140) The natural way of getting older unfortunately isn’t improvement or way up. Generally, the path of the flesh is a downhill slope. (17:3) Take behavior as one major NWO when it needs some definite work of improvement! (17:78) The more acceptance you’ll sow, the more of it you’ll also reap! And it means, not looking at folks’ faults and mistakes so much, but beyond them, with a bit of that hope which should have been coming from Me telling you that I can manage to make something better out of you than you have been, and are. Ignoring people’s mistakes comes from the faith in My ability to make something or someone better out of anyone, if they’re just willing and let Me. But first it might be their job to desire that experience of changing former bad habits and replacing wrong attitudes with the right kind. (17:82) Mistakes made show the need for improvement. (17:83) Negative circumstances show that a situation of improvement would be a blessing, and a positive change. Waking up to the fact of what state of a mess the world is in, is a bit more of what gets you to seek some improvement and positive changes. (17:96) Circumstances bring about the need and incentive for positive changes and improvement… one of the ultimate destinations of world history through learning from experience where it’s not at, and what should be handled and done in a different, better way.

Improvement comes about through the experiences of the necessity for it through the unpleasant factors the world is currently going through… heading toward the roughest part of that lesson. (17:101) Often, what needs to change most in order to improve and make things better, is one’s own perspectives and ways of looking at things - to adopt a positive attitude and perception of what’s around; even if those things need and require improvement, but the recognition of one’s own need for improvement is pretty much the first step to change things for the better. (17:106) It’s natural to want and desire improvement for the right here and now, but that’s another aspect of faith: It’s largely directed toward a better, coming There & Then. (17:107) Prayer, as one of the most important tasks of believers, is part of changing the world for the better. One of the things you can definitely do to improve things and conditions in the world around you is pray for or against them, and for something better, some positive changes instead. One of the safest ways to bring about positive change: prayer. So, if you need and desire a positive change, the first thing to get that accomplished, remember, is to pray! (17:121) Judgment will be coming. But it’s not a good attitude to have that of judging other folks around you when you still have a lot of improvement on your own to-do-list! (17:126) One of the main messages of faith: “Something Better is coming!” If you look around and see the need for improvement, just remember: It’s coming! (17:133) If you’ve been left in a weaker state than before, isn’t that a chance to give Me that challenge to manage to make a positive change and improvement out of it all, despite the forces that are telling you the opposite - the voices that are trying to turn just about everything into a negative? (17:136)

…Incapability vs. Capability (/Capacity) (Ability vs. Inability) People’s unwillingness and incapability to cope with the truth is something you’re going to have to learn more about, deal with, and find ways to bring the truth home to people, even if that’s the one thing they reject. (III:565) The only way anybody in My service is ever going to make it to the finish line victoriously is by faith, not by sight and being able to calculate every little step ahead, relying on one’s own strength, wit and abilities. (IV:29) I’m not expecting any more of you than I know you’re capable of. (IV:32) I might bring you very close to the edge of your capacities sometimes, but that’s the way you grow and make progress. (IV:38)

Being your own god, limiting your own, personal little universe to all the limitations and boundaries you allow, narrows your horizon and your capacity to grow and expand to a fraction of the world that I could show you. (IV:143) See each crisis as an opportunity to experience more of My fullness and of My capacity to be all you ever need! Praise Me for the contrast that My Being constitutes to the limited nature and capacities of your fellow humans, and yourself included! (IV:156) It’s the nature of the flesh to overestimate its capacities. The flesh thinks itself capable of handling and resisting the temptation, but experience and reality will often paint a different picture. (IV:182) Look at My salvaging Power and capability to preserve anything out of this crumbling world, including anyone who will turn to Me and thus refuse to take part in the process of all things decaying! (IV:240) I delight in using weak vessels: the ideal kind of person to show and prove that it’s not in the flesh, nor in any shape or form of physical ability. (IV:257) Rely not on your own understanding and your own capabilities to make sense of your situation! (IV:273)

I have to go by your faith and what you're capable of. (IV:274) Everyone only has limited capacities to give, unless they make sure they get a refill from Me regularly and know how to avail themselves of My aid to bridge their own incapabilities… (IV:289) It all depends on your ability to make the best out of whatever you’ve been given. (IV:344) Where is your trust? - In the flesh or in the spirit? Which one do you really think is more capable? (IV:411) Neither I nor you can expect more of you than what you’re capable of. (IV:438) I want to show the world that there is a different way, a real alternative… a way of trust in Me instead of in oneself and one’s own abilities only. (IV:481) When you come to the end of your own capacities, that’s where I’ll come in and take over and do the things you can’t. (IV:514)

I want your focus to be on Me primarily, and your trust to be placed in Me, not your own capabilities. (11:6) By trusting that I’ll do what you can’t, you show that you have faith in Me more than in your own abilities. (11:9) I know it’s a dilemma you’re weak, clueless and incapable, but your dilemma is My opportunity. I can do things there that I could never do or would not get a chance to do if you were so perfectly capable, self-sufficient and independent. (11:13) Taking you to the extremes and limits of your present capacities is what it’s all about in order to make you grow, expand and progress… (11:31) I want folks to know that there’s a Power that they can avail themselves of that’s going to enable them to do anything, even the things they don’t feel capable of. If you feel incapable, trust that I will give you the necessary strength! (11:39) I am capable of the things you’re not, so, as far as I’m concerned, we make a perfect team. (11:58) Sometimes there’s no other way for folks to make it through the hard times to come than allowing some trouble to prepare them for it, including in order to get them used to applying for Help from Above, and not thinking or expecting to be able to make it through coming circumstances in their own strength and capacities. The best preparation for the times to come is getting used to needing that Help from Above, instead of confiding in your own energies and capacities. (16:50) Maybe I also still appreciate challenges! – Like doing it through those who most unlikely seem capable. Trust Us that We’re able to achieve things that by human standards would be termed and considered “impossible!” (16:55) It’s not through your own abilities you’ll make it through what’s to come, but only through learning to avail yourself of the Help from Above! (16:56) With the realization of times getting worse, it’s good to get prepared for it. And which better way to do that, than learn to rely on Me, instead of your own capabilities? They are capable to sustain and support you a bit now… but then? It’s time to learn not to lean on the flesh anymore, and your own capabilities, but in Mine! So, don’t let it discourage you to feel incapable, but let it teach you to not lean on your own strength, but on Mine and all the Help you’ll get from Above! Feeling like you can’t make it? – Look Up Here! So, getting and staying in tune with Me is the best you can do as preparation for the times soon coming! Realize that it’s soon going to be time to bid those own capabilities farewell, and lean on all the Strength you can get from Above! That’ll be one of the special conditions of the Endtime: having to utterly rely on the Strength and Help from Above. – Not anymore on your own capacities, except the one of applying that Help and Strength you’ll need to survive! – Which is what I’m trying to teach you right now. Losing confidence in your own abilities is a plus, as far as preparation for the times to come’s concerned. Get ready by learning to lean on Me, not your own capabilities! (16:60) Feel incapable? – Let Me do it through you with the Power and Strength of the Spirit! (2016:61) When survival turns into a miracle, it’s best to do all you can to learn to depend on that miracle power instead of your own abilities, knowledge and capacities. Can’t make it? A good sign from My point of view, as it draws you into a position where you’ll need Me to help you make it, and not rely so much on your own capacities anymore.

If you can’t make it, that’s a good sign that you need Me, and – as you’ll find out – the way it works best. So, don’t feel too bad about it when you’re feeling incapable! Can’t make it on your own? Good opportunity to make it through Me! – And good training and preparation for the much harder times to come! – Apart from the benefits of not leaning too much on the flesh and your own capacities. (2016:63) Remember that the mind is part of your fleshly capacities, and not being able to lean and rely on that anymore shows you it’s better to rely on My Spirit! (16:64) The more you need that Help from Above, causing you to apply and pray for it, the more you’ll get out of that old carnal groove of leaning on your own abilities, which definitely won’t help make it through the dark times to come! If the fleshly means and abilities fail, let the task of Our Spirit in you increase! – And let us show and prove to you, which is stronger and more powerful and capable of seeing you through times of trouble! Lean not on your own talents and capabilities to help see you through times to come, for those days will need and require greater Help and Strength your carnal abilities cannot come up with! The Strength and Power from Above: The only One to help you make it through what’s to come! So, the sooner you’ll learn that, instead of continuing to rely on your own capabilities, the better things will be. (16:72) When you don’t have much of a clue if or how you’re going to make it, trust Me that it’s just about the best way one can get onto a path of a life of faith – one where your connection with Me plays the most important part, and not just your own capabilities. (16:74) The troubles each day is starting with are to remind you what you’re supposed to rely on: not your own capacities, but the Help and Strength from Above to see you through, so that depending on Them will also help to see you through and make it through the troubled times to come! (16:75) Some things can’t just be blamed on your inabilities, when I promised you that you could do all things through Me. (16:77) It’s not your own capabilities that will see you through, but the Help from Above. And with your capabilities drifting down to a level where you don’t have a clue whether or how you’ll make it, you can figure out why I’m so keen on using you. (16:79) You’ve still been hoping that your own abilities would help see you through somehow, but I’m trying to teach you that it’ll only be Our abilities, and on your side, strong faith that’ll help see you through. (16:84) A positive outlook is what will see you through if you put your vision toward the right direction… which is Up Here to Me, not your own fleshly abilities. Time to rely more on the Spirit than your flesh and its capabilities! It’s easier for Me to use folks who can’t rely fully on their own fleshly capacities. (16:85) You used to be largely capable of making it in your own strength, capacities and abilities, but I’m trying to prepare you and make it clear to you that you won’t. I’ve allowed your physical abilities to largely die down, that you would get the point of what I already told My disciples during the Roman Empire, which – with Nero, who was also directed and partly possessed by Satan – became the prototype of the coming final world empire: “Without Me ye can do nothing (Jn.15:5)!” If you’re feeling incapable of making it anywhere in the condition you are, let it be a training and preparation for times to come during which you’ll be totally dependent on Heaven’s Help for your very survival! (16:86) It will take miracles and Power from Above to make it through the darkest time of history, and nothing – no physical abilities – that one rejecting the Mark of the Beast will be able to rely on! Can you see why I’m allowing the lowering of your physical conditions and abilities? (16:90) Not being able to rely on your fleshly capabilities is just something you need to get used to, since what it takes to make it through what’s coming will be anything else but that! The less you can rely on yourself and your own capabilities, the more it will drive you to rely on Me, and you’ve just got to trust Me that that’s the best for you! In order to make those drastic, negative changes turn into something halfway positive for you and yours, you’ve just got to get into that groove of utter dependence on Me and Heaven’s Help, instead of your own – former – physical abilities! That little taste and groove of “impossible” for you is just part of preparation for the darkest times of history when it’ll take miracles to make it through each day… - Something to get you into the groove of “All things are possible to him that believes,” instead of relying on your own carnal abilities. (16:92) If you can’t fully rely on your own physical capacities anymore to see you through, see it as an important part of your preparation for the days to come when no one will make it on their own! Becoming dependent on Me, My Strength, Power and Help is just something you’ll have to get used to, instead of relying on your own abilities. So… not that easy? – Not in your own capacities, but that’s why you have to learn to avail yourself of Mine, and the Help you can get from Above. So, can you make it? Not on your own, relying on your own strengths and capabilities, but relying on Me, you will. Feeling incapable? Let Me make you able! (16:98)

The more you depend on Me instead of your own abilities, the better! (16:99) To teach you how to handle difficult times is not to make you feel forsaken by Me, but to draw you closer to Me and make you more aware of the necessity of staying as close to Me as you can, depending on My guidance and protection, and not your own physical abilities! (16:100) If you can’t rely on those surrounding you, it’s a good reminder of Who you should rely on. – The only One to help you make it through what’s to come. The same applies to your physical capabilities. Can’t rely on them anymore? – Rely on Me! Trust Me that if you commit your survival into My hands, you won’t be as disappointed as if you would be if you try it on your own! That’s why I’m getting you out of the gear of relying on your physical abilities. (16:101) To recognize and respect the benefits of aging, that drawing nearer toward the better Place you’re heading as a believer, takes some capability of overcoming the current circumstances and looking at the better Goal beyond, through faith. Remember faith, the capacity of believing that the Father knows what He’s allowing to happen to you in order to shape your character and make what you’re supposed to be out of you! (16:102) You’re pretty much going to have to trust Me for the way you’re going to make it through life, not your own abilities… and according to the point from which I see it, it’s the only way to make it through the times to come. (16:109) Coming to grips with your own carnal-minded faults is just one of those paths that convince you of the superiority of relying on spiritual reason and wisdom from Up Here, and I have to admit that to weaken your mental abilities was a part of what We allowed. So, can’t figure things out in your own abilities? Good point to start putting your entire trust Up Here! So, if the incapacity of your own mind gives you battles, let Me encourage you: the less, the better. The less you’re able to trust in your own mind and abilities to get things done, the more you’ll be geared to trusting Us for it all instead; and with the way the world’s headed, that’s definitely the better! So, no reliance on your own capacities? See it as an advantage in the point of view of what’s to come! If you’re not capable to figure things out, how to do them, or what to do, in your own mind, let it serve to be led and guided by Us! So, feeling incapable? Good news for Us, as far as We’re concerned, because it will lead you to the clue that capacity and capability will rely on Us and all Help, leading and guidance you can obtain from Here in the days to come. (16:114) When you don’t have a clue, that’s good news for both: Us and you. Because it means you’ll have to tune in to Us, instead of trying to make it leaning on your own physical abilities, which are unlikely to see you through the times to come. (16:117) Take it as an attack and sly trick of the enemy to not find the ability to confront and overcome your own evils by only keeping you focus on those of the others around you! (16:120) To feel less capable down there will make you feel less at home in that world; and that’s not a negative. (16:125) Managing things in your own strengths and capacities doesn’t always (or even often) result in what I would like you to accomplish for Me, which might be something totally different from what you’d seek to get done in your own strength. So, feel incapable? Remember that many of the words, the way they’re being used in the world by your fellow humans may easily mean the opposite in My World and Realm! (16:127) Don’t trust in your own abilities to see you through what’s coming, but just make sure you put your trust completely in Me! (16:132)

Trust Me that you’ll be better off, not able to make it by yourself! (16:134) Feeling incapable? Isn’t that a good reminder to cling to My Help and become dependent on It? So, don’t feel too negative about it when you’re not feeling capable of managing with life as it is! I’m looking for folks who aren’t too self-conscious, and thus give Us a chance to work through them. So, don’t feel too bad about feeling incapable, but just let it be a reminder that you’ve got to get ahold of Our Strength and Power and anointing first, before you can do the job for Us! (16:136) I’ve had to allow for you to get weakened in your physical abilities in order to be able to rely more on the Spirit. The carnal abilities of man won’t help very much trying to do the job for a God Who is Spirit. (16:138) Learn how to trust more in Me for your strength, not your own physical capacities! So, don’t be too discouraged when you feel quite incapable of making it through your days, but let it teach you to start using the Source of Power from Above to make it through, which is a very necessary learning and development process for times to come! It’s good not to pin your faith on your flesh and own capacities for your survival. You can’t make it on your own, but I can make it through you. So, get used to putting your trust for strength to make it in Me, not your own abilities! (16:139)

Humility represents the refusal to rely on one’s own abilities, which is basically what pride amounts to, and is what caused Lucifer’s fall. As long as you still have the same amount of love for others as for yourself, your own abilities can work as a gift. But once that love is gone… it’s time to come back and yield to the God of Love. (16:143) The preparation for tough times includes that ability to rise above no matter what the circumstances are. Living by faith means to attain the ability to resist all influences of negative circumstances around you. (16:144) Having taken part of your physical abilities away from you had the purpose of getting you more into the gear of living by faith. – Faith in Me and the Power and supply from Above, not your own abilities, since that’s the only thing that will get you through the hard times coming. See Me as the Provider, not your own physical abilities! Make your faith – not your own physical abilities – the source of providing for your needs! Get used to leaning on Me for your survival, not your own physical abilities! That’s what living by faith means. Just get into that groove of leaning on Me instead of your own abilities! It’s what’ll see you through the times coming. That’s why trusting in and relying on Me has to become your major ability, not what you can do to entertain or serve people with physical abilities. Remember My job for you! – Being a witness of faith, not another sample of physical abilities. (16:145)

Even if apparent (physical) incapability may strike you as a letdown at first, it’s the question, in whom do you trust more: in Me or in yourself? And those feelings of a state of physical incapability are a good thing – a positive, you’ll see! Depending on Me instead of your own capabilities is good news! And the only thing that will see you through what’s coming. (16:150) Folks doubting My existence all prefer to rely on their own abilities. But that’s another reason why I advise you not to look at man and the behavior and attitudes of folks around you. (16:155) Trust in the Source of Strength that really counts and goes way above physical abilities! (16:158) Get used to the fact of circumstances and conditions less likely to change than your ability to make it through them! You’ll recognize that the preparation for utter dependence on Me will have been the best that could have happened to you, even if right now you’re frustrated by feeling utterly incapable of dealing with what’s there to handle. (16:159) Miracles are simply not performed through physical capabilities. Having become rather incapable compared to former physical abilities, you’re ready to let Me do the miracle-work through and for you. We’ll be able to accomplish a lot more through you than you’ve been able to – and ever would be – on your own, and in your own strengths and capacities. Ready for greater things through miracles than you’ve ever been able to accomplish on your own, in your own carnal strengths and capacities? You won’t be disappointed and a lot more useful in many aspects than during the times you were just leaning on your own capacities – and folks around you will be more thrilled, too, seeing that Power from Above manifested in what you can do than whatever carnal and fleshly abilities you’ve had to portray in the past. See what the Strength and Power from Above will be capable of doing for you in spite of what will be going on around you! The meaning, sense and purpose of life: not to rely on your own strengths and capacities, but Ours – the ones from Above. So, don’t let the “incapacity feelings” drag you down, but see them as reminders of your need for Me and Heaven’s Help! Lacking confidence because of feelings of incapability? Personally, I’d call that a positive, since it’s the kind of thing that draws you closer to Me and emphasizes your need for Me. Factors to enable your survival will require uttering some prayers for it, giving Us the glory in your praises for it, and thanking us for the Help from Above, instead of leaning on your own abilities. (16:161) Prayer power to make miracles happen is becoming a much more necessary source of abilities to make it through what’s coming. Forget about your own abilities! – Except for the ability to pray for all that you need to make it through what’s coming. The weaker one’s own abilities, the more obvious it becomes that only miracles from Above are what’s going to see you through. (16:167) As rough as times are getting, I just can’t let you continue to make it in your own groove, leaning on your own abilities. You desperately need to learn to depend on Me and the Help and Strength from Above, not your relatively small – and shrinking – carnal abilities, or even those of your carnal mind. So, feeling incapable? Just see it as a reminder of your upcoming need for the Strength and Power from Above… miraculous Help and support without which you just wouldn’t make it, and thus have to learn to lean and depend on! The only way to make it through what’s coming is not leaning on your own abilities, but on Mine and all of Heaven’s to see you through. (16:173)

One of the disadvantages of relying on one’s own, physical abilities: There will always come situations and difficulties too hard to deal with in one’s own capacities of the flesh; and thus, trusting in the heavenly Help and support and protection from Above is – with what’s coming at the world – a much safer way to ride and walk, and one of the reasons We’re not letting times be as easy for you as they have been in the past, where you were able to rely on your own abilities and capacities. Don’t see it as a negative, that sensation of not being able to rely on your own abilities! Swap your trust and confidence in Mine for you instead! (16:175) Feeling incapable? That’s a good sign for Me, since it drives you into the gear of relying on Me and Heaven’s capabilities, instead of your own. (16:176) Feeling unable shows the need of prayer for Strength from Above to enable you. The awareness of the need for Strength from Above arises with the disappearance of your own strengths and abilities you used to rely on. So, don’t let it get you uptight, this feeling of inability to accomplish anything by yourself and in your own – former – strengths and capabilities! (16:177) See the trouble coming as Our challenge to prove Our ability and readiness to bless you with Our Help! One advantage of experiencing Our Help to make it through rough and potentially dangerous events: raising your faith in and lifting your worries about the capacities of making it through the times to come. Our Help thus shows that it signifies the raising of your capacities. If things would just keep going the same as they always have, the tendency is there to confide more in your own abilities and capacities… but unfortunately – or rather, fortunately? – those days will soon be over, and We’ve just got to get you dependent on heavenly Help to make it through what’s coming. (2016:178) Trust Me that what’s coming is too rough to handle with mere carnal capacities and abilities! That’s why We’ve had to allow yours to be weakened, in order for you to rely more on those from Above – the only Source of Strength, Power and Insight you stand the chance to make it with through what’s coming! (2016:180) When you feel incapable, I’m more likely to be able to do things through you than when you think you can manage things on your own! So, feeling incapable? Take it as an asset – for Me! – And you, after seeing what I can accomplish through you, if you let Me… let Me, because you figure and come to the conclusion you can’t do it on your own! Let Me move through you! And feeling weak is what will usually enable you to do that, since you quit thinking you can do it all on your own. So, not much faith left in your own abilities? That’s the perfect time and point to put your faith in Mine! – My abilities to do things through you! Feeling incapable? That’s what makes Me feel able to do things through you, since I know you’re not basing your faith and confidence on your own abilities… anymore. So, the ultimate test of faith for those who’ve been leaning on their own, carnal capabilities for decades: will I make it to do through them what they can’t anymore by themselves? And it’s a necessary process, since there are times coming when no carnal abilities will help see My believers through, but only their confidence in and reliance on Me and the Power from Above to enable and strengthen them. (2016:181) Not having a clue how to handle it all? Toss it Up to Me, and let Me handle it for you! (2016:182) I just can’t let you go the way you would in your old, natural capacities… since there would be no way for you to make it through what’s coming if I would. (2016:183) You may find yourself confronted with relative carnal incapability as necessary factor to introduce spiritual capacity and capability. The flesh has to slow down in order to make the Spirit lite up. (2016:188) Realizing the disability of making it on your own may turn out to be a more positive factor than you initially were able to see. (2016:190) If you feel like you can’t make it, it’s preparation for what’s coming: you won’t make it without heavenly Help! So, start seeing the disability to make it without Me as a positive! – The necessary preparation for what’s to come! Right now it’s still unusual for you, but as times go by, it will become usual, not knowing what to do, nor having the strength and ability to do whatever it takes to get through without asking for heavenly Help, insight and guidance. Changes are coming which won’t enable you to continue in the same old modus operandi. - No more reliance on the flesh and own abilities! (2016:191) When you were still feeling capable of making it on your own and in your own strengths, it was just lacking that process of needed preparation for what’s to come, which is the main reason We had to allow your fleshly condition to be weakened, in order to put all your trust in Our Strength from Above, and not your own. (2016:193)

Don’t feel too bad about the incapability of making it on your own; for times are coming when you won’t be the only one! (2016:195)

Can you lean on and depend on Me instead of your own capacities? – Have Christ-confidence instead of self-confidence? That’s what you’ll need for times to come, and the main reason why I’ve allowed your own capacities to be weakened. (2016:196)

If your faith in My ability and capacity to forgive is too small to handle what you’re putting Me through, let that faith grow, instead of keeping Me in your mind as incapable of handling what you’re giving Me to deal with! (2016:198) It’s good for you to find out what I might manage to accomplish through your state of incapacity. When folks aren’t capable anymore on their own to do great things, they have to realize that it’s got to be not them but the Power from Above working through them. (2016:199) There comes a time you’ll be dependent on trusting in Our Strength and Help, not just your own capacities and abilities anymore, and I’m preparing you for that. Remember that Our allowing incidents that cause the weakening of physical abilities must have a significant reason for it! – And it’s mainly to put the trust and confidence in Us, not one’s own abilities and capacities! So, even though it may cause you a lot of trials not to make it in your own strengths and capacities, trust Us for the good reason for it! Get used to not making it with your own abilities! (2016:201) The incapacity of some to put up any fight against the downrightly manifested evil right before them is hard to take, but also seems to show that they have a greater capacity to take things and accept them as they are. (2016:202) The recognition of your own incapability is what draws you to My capability through you. The more helpless and incapable you feel, the greater the expression of your need for Me and My Help and input, and so, the greater the opportunity for Me and Heaven’s Power and Strength to come and fill you up. Don’t let it discourage you, that feeling of incapability, but let it found the faith in you that greater things can be accomplished through one’s own lack of strength and energy and their connection with Heaven’s Source of Strength through Me instead! So, feeling disabled and incapable? Cheer up! It’s the greatest possibility and opportunity for Me and the heavenly host to accomplish things through you. (2016:204) The times to run in the confidence of your own strengths and capacities are simply over. Bad news? It may seem so, temporarily, but you’ll see the wisdom of the heavenly plan behind it sooner or later. Your accomplishments will result in what you allow Heaven’s Forces to accomplish through you without your own abilities standing in the way. (2016:205) If you can’t make it with your own, physical means as well as you used to, let it be a sign of Our leading and guidance of where you’re supposed to place your faith and confidence instead! It means, no more trust and confidence in your own abilities, but the necessary Help and support from Above. It may not have been as necessary before, but it’s becoming absolutely necessary to make it through the times to come. - One of the important aspects of changes. One of the big changes up ahead is that the trust and confidence in your own abilities are coming to an end, and only trust and confidence in Heaven’s Help and Our Strength and Power will see you through what’s coming. The best ability one can have for times to come is the ability to put one’s entire trust and confidence in Us, and not oneself. Put your faith and trust in Us, instead of your own abilities! Put your trust in God Who is Spirit, through which all things were made, and you’re more prone to make it through than your own, physical capacities! (2016:207) Not being able to deal with things in your own, natural abilities is what’s supposed to make you rely on the supernatural abilities from Above, the kind My earlier and true disciples had to depend on! So, see the advantage of feeling incapable! (17:1) Clinging to Me and My Help and expecting Me to do it through you is an act of faith, a spiritual ability you have to get into, not a physical. And even if the physical circumstances strongly seek to distract you from that, not making it without Help from Above should get you to tune in and cling to it all the more. Can’t make it? Let Me make it through you! (17:4) If you don’t manage in your own capacities, let your incapacity be a sign that you urgently need the Strength and Help from Above! Realize it’s not your own abilities you can lean on anymore, but the enabling from Above, through My Power, My Spirit and the creative Source of Energy where life truly comes from! (17:6) My faithfulness to you is what shall bring about your faithfulness to Me, and that appreciation for Someone never leaving your side, and always capable of helping you to make it through whatever it is you’re having to go through.

That trust that I and your heavenly helpers will help to see you through and help you manage, no matter what, is one of the best abilities and qualities you can have. (17:8) Don’t feel to bad about your inabilities and weakness, since they draw you closer into the process of doing things in the right Strength from Above, and will remind you thus to give the glory to Whom it belongs, and draw you closer to Me! So, don’t feel too bad about physical incapability, but see in it My golden opportunity to become capable to do things through you! (17:9) The value of your spiritual abilities will rise high above your physical ones as times get harder. A letdown effect on your self-confidence is another aspect in which I’d like you to put more trust and confidence in Me and heavenly Strength and Power, instead of your own abilities. - Simply because what will be needed for the tough times to come will be more than you could manage in your own strengths and capabilities. Just don’t get too worried about not managing it all with your own wits or strengths or capabilities! Get used to the fact that you’ll have to rely on Mine! Your faith and trust in Me have got to become the major factor, above the capabilities of your flesh and carnal mind. It’s not that your flesh and carnal abilities are useless, but you’ll need more than what the flesh can offer, in times to come. The state in which you don’t know what to do or find yourself unable to, gets you into the necessary shape to apply for Help from Up Here to get done what you can’t and lead and guide you where you’re supposed to go. (17:12) The times you used to make it in your own carnal capacities are simply over, and you have to get used to it! (17:20) Let your incapacities dawn on you as something that might achieve some positive changes of character that former capacities might not have brought about! (17:25) When you feel like you can’t manage on your own, cheer up! That’s the level and the way you’ll make it through times to come: depending on Me and Heaven’s Help, not your own capacities. So, feeling incapable to do it on your own? – Good preparation for what’s to come! See it as something positive! – The necessary process of preparation for desperate times to come! Not making it on your own and with your own capabilities anymore is part of the necessary process to prepare you for what’s to come. New situations require something different than leaning on one’s own abilities. So, don’t be too worried and concerned if you can’t manage to rig everything up in your own knowledge and physical capacities! Get used to the fact that ultimately you’re dependent on others’ capabilities… such as Ours, your heavenly Helpers, as well as those of the folks We pick to use in order to prove that it’s not just what’s stored up in one’s head what We’re able to use! Ultimately, the heart and soul will turn out as something a lot more useful than the head and what one’s got stored up in it. (17:27) The easy times are over. Learn how to handle the tough, even if you’re not a capable in the arms of the flesh and your own abilities as you used to be! In former times you’ve made it to a large percentage on your own, physical abilities; but by letting you experience a low passage of that former state I’m in the process of teaching you to utterly lean on Me and Heaven’s Help without which you wouldn’t and won’t make it through what’s coming up ahead. Dependence on Heaven’s Help will be the quality to see folks through what’s coming, not former own abilities. If there’s nothing you can do, it shows you need Me and Heaven’s Help in order to do it. (17:30) The less you can do it on your own, the greater My chance to work through you. So, don’t see it as a negative when you’re feeling incapable! Learning how to make it in spite of negative conditions strengthens your abilities, and most of all, your abilities of faith and trust in Us in spite of all that comes and whatever happens. (17:31) The enemy’s imitations of the Real Thing and Our divine values are another main factor that weakens folks’ faith and confidence in Us and the realization of their need for Us and Our Help, when they see so many folks around them making it in their own capacities. (17:34) Prayer is the way to get and stay tuned to the Holy Spirit. It’s a proof that you’re leaning on and admit you’re dependent on the Help, support and supply from Above, not just the mode of your own abilities, and that’s just the groove to get into for the toughest times to come. Can’t make it without Me? – Good! It may seem like a negative to the flesh if you can’t manage to make it in your own strengths, but as far as our view from Up Here’s concerned, it’s a positive. Isn’t it also a great demonstration of humility, that lack of leaning on the capacities of the flesh? So, let the weakness of your own, carnal abilities become your strengthening factor of the needed blessing of humility! Having to lean and rely on prayer in order to obtain the Help, Strength and support from Above is the greatest factor to help one realize that it’s not the strength and abilities of oneself that’ll pull them through. (17:36)

With times coming where own capacities won’t make as much of a difference, it’s good – actually the best – to learn to depend on Me and the Help from Above. If it’s the common gear to rely on one’s own abilities, and even you are having a hard time letting go of them, don’t be too shocked if it strikes folks around you as strange! The importance of being and making a difference definitely includes that “capacity” of being weak in the flesh and relying more on the Spirit… it that’s what the Father Himself is. (17:37) Just remember that as I’ve been with the old prophets and saw them through, so I will see you through, if you just cling to Me and don’t try to make it in your own abilities and strength! (17:42) Lean and rely more on the Wisdom, Help and Power from Above instead of your own capabilities! (17:46) If you don’t have a clue how to make it, well, isn’t that a reminder to rely on Me, instead of your own capacities? (17:50) Knowing that you can’t make it without Me will become part of the utter reality for you, and I’m just getting you closer to the state of the ability to accept that. ? (17:51) Don’t see the state of physical inability - and what currently may strike you as “chaos” - as a negative! (17:57) “Making it” depends on your ability to take things - as they come. A spark of godly wisdom: keeping humble, and not too confident in your own abilities, but relying more on Ours. Making it through times to come on human strengths and capacities alone, just won’t go. What doesn’t seem like good news upon first aspects, trust Me that they’ll turn out good in the end through making you stronger in spirit, through learning to rely on Us instead of your own, physical abilities! (17:61) With physical capacities going down, you’ll just have to learn to rely more on Mine. So, don’t feel too bad about being incapable by yourself, but let it teach you to rely more on Me and your Help from Above! Consider dependence on Me and Help from Above an advantage, since there are times coming when that ability will be an utter necessity! (17:63) You simply may not be able to trust in and rely on your own capacities anymore the way you were used to, but take My Word for it, that that’s the clue that’ll see you through, namely trusting in My Strength and Power, instead of your own! (17:66)

You’ve got to trust in My capacities, and Heaven’s capacities to help and support you, not your own. Remember “I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth Me (Phil.4:13),” but when it comes to doing things in your own capacities, it’s better to have the attitude “I can do nothing.” And thus remember what I told My disciples, “Without Me ye can do nothing (Jn.15:5).” (17:68) If folks around you have greater capacities and abilities to take life as it is, handle it and deal with it as it comes, and just trust Me that there are some good reasons for Me not allowing you to have the same abilities, but being forced to rely on Me and the Help from Above a bit more! (17:70) The more you become aware of your own incapability, the more you’ll realize you need the Help from Above to make it… and there’s just a time coming when folks simply won’t make it anymore without It. (17:76) You’ll need more than your own carnal abilities to make it through what’s to come! (17:78) Depending on own capabilities will be a mode of the past. Physical conditions and capacities go down to lower dependence and confidence in that factor, in order to make it more obvious from where Strength to make it will need to come. The less capability in the flesh, the more reliance on the Spirit. (17:80) I don’t want you to see your present incapability as a disadvantage, but as a coming advantage that will enable Me to do things through you that you couldn’t possibly accomplish by yourself, and definitely not in times to come! Keep your trust in Me in spite of your own incapabilities, in order to make it clear and obvious that it’ll be Me working through you! Even if it seems obvious that you’re incapable, and one would just wonder “how could God use something like that?” remember that I like to confound and surprise people with unexpected results… the things that seem so impossible to be done by someone weak, that it’s just obviously a miracle, and thus an even much greater testimony and sample of the Powers and Forces from Above at work than what folks could possibly accomplish in their own strengths and capacities! “Incapability” has become one of My leading topics. Don’t look down on it, but rather see it as that type of “golden opportunity” I like to use! See, the times of trouble that are coming will be so bad, that it will be absolutely useless to rely on one’s own capacities, strength and power. (17:82)

Feeling incapable, and thus in the need of heavenly Help isn’t a negative, but something you’re going to have to get used to, since you just won’t make it without that in the dark days up ahead. That’s what incapability is there for: to remind you of the need of heavenly Help you can get for nothing but asking for It through prayer. Don’t feel like you can make it? Make it through prayer! (17:84) The days of making it on your own and in your own capacities are just about over! That state of incapacity will lead and direct you to something better… a greater strength, namely Mine, and that from Above, not the usual, carnal one from down there, that is simply not bound to last! (17:86) Things simply do get done in a better way when availing yourself of Heaven’s Help for them, instead of relying on your own, fleshly capacities only. (17:88) Not relying on own capacities is a transition that doesn’t come automatically, since for the majority of folks it’s just something they’re not used to, and pretty much that applies to those who’ve been able to rely largely on their own talents and capacities. So, it’s a necessary transition, but not really one that comes “naturally” or easily for folks who’ve been able to rely on their own fleshly capacities for the majority of their lives. You’ve got to get into leaning on Me, not your own, physical abilities. It pays to walk by faith not in your own capabilities, but in Mine and Heaven’s all around you. (17:89) Put your trust in Me, not your own natural abilities to make it! (17:93) If you feel too weak to cope with it all, it should show you the necessity of My heavenly Strength, instead of just your own, natural capacities. (17:96) Keep trusting that I know what I’m allowing to happen to you and what you’ve got to face, principally in order to raise your faith and confidence and make them stronger in order to get into the state in which you’ll be capable of dealing with the worse times coming! Expecting troubled times when you’re younger and still full of own physical strength isn’t as harsh a test of faith as when you’re older and weakened in the flesh, but that’s how I can get you to lean on the spiritual Strength from Above, not your own, physical capacities. (17:98) Usually, the result turns out a lot better through folks who depend on Me than of those who can still rely on themselves and their own capacities. (17:99) The tougher it is for you, the more you have to rely on My Strength and Power, instead of mainly relying on your own abilities. (17:102) Let My Spirit fill the slots of disability around you with the ability that I can make out of your physical incapabilities! (17:105) Part of the ability to change is definitely to pray for it, and have the faith that I can change you and make out of you what you’re supposed to be! (17:106) Don’t let the circumstances and conditions direct you, but learn to let Our Spirit direct them, and at least your perception of them and the ability to handle them and deal with them! (17:115) Feeling unable to make it on your own’s a good condition, as far as I’m concerned, so that you recognize the need of asking for Help and Strength from Above without which it won’t be possible to make it through the dark times coming. (17:116)

Let go of your natural feelings of ability and capacity and let God prepare you for what’s coming through making you dependent on His Help from Above! Never feel bad about feeling weak, but see it as Our Golden Opportunity to bring to pass through Our Strength in you what could never be achieved through folks relying on their own, physical strengths and capacities! So, don’t see that physical state of incapability as a negative, but as My Golden Opportunity to empower you and make and get something out of you that you never could in the flesh! (17:119) “According to your faith” means, not according to your own abilities, but according to Mine, and your faith in, and thus, the ability to use Them. (17:128)

Weaknesses and flaws I can live and work with more easily than some folks’ abilities that drag them, their time and attention too far away from Me to be able to use them the way I’d like to. (17:129) You’re becoming aware of the fact that you can’t rely on your own, physical abilities anymore the way you used to. But it’s going to be a lot tougher and more extreme yet in that aspect, to the point where you’ll depend every day and every moment on My protection for your survival. (17:130)

Whenever you feel like you can’t make it, that should remind you of the need for My Strength, Power and Light, without which you simply won’t make it through the darkest times to come. (17:131) Stick to My Word! - The Factor that will enable you to do things many others might not find themselves capable of. Trust in My Word as the Factor of capability when you’re feeling physically incapable! (17:134) The more you depend on Me, lean on Me and trust in Me, the more I feel responsible for you… more so than if you just keep trusting in yourself and your own capabilities. Trusting and putting hope in your own talent would bring all My efforts to naught to get you to put your faith purely in Me and My capacities instead of your own! (17:143) It may be a little tough for you to believe how I’m going to be able to use you with the lower likeliness of My ability to use your disabilities… but isn’t that the kind of “odds,” miracles and wonders I’ve always specified in? (17:147)

…Influence & Effect Don't let them influence you, but be an influence on them for the better! Be a rock in their midst that won't be swayed, that refuses to be dragged along by their negative currents! (II:296) It seems like a hopeless job, when everything you try to sow in others’ lives is being torn down again by the world in which they are so much more deeply immersed than the influence you have on them, but that’s where faith comes in to never give up. (III:508) The environment is bound to have some sort of effect on the fruit. It’s harder to find good, healthy fruit in a spiritually sick and unhealthy country. (III:592) You mustn’t make the mistake of underestimating the power I’ve given you to change things, to influence things, even if by nothing else but your prayers! (IV:7) Blessings in disguise will often have a more positive effect on the overall outcome than the seemingly and initial “good” things. All things work together for good to them that love Me, not just the supposedly “good” things. (IV:26) As long as things aren’t flowing too smoothly and you can’t just float along complacently, you know that you must be having some effect that causes the enemy to go on the counter-attack. (IV:31) I have a hard enough time with the times that your minds or spirits are temporarily usurped by some enemy influence, without subjecting yourselves permanently to such via the influence of some relative that you feel you have physical or moral obligation toward, even though they may have nothing in common with our spiritual Cause. (IV:107) My influence in someone’s life can purify their motivations and cleanse a relationship or marriage from any impure and selfish elements. (IV:108) The true and valid information of My Word brings insight and wisdom. The false, erroneous and in most cases simply untrue information that the enemy has been pouring out through the System has the opposite effect. (IV:176) No matter how much information you derive from the present world, it will never have the same pleasant effect on you as the kind of information I give you straight from My Realm. (IV:182) You can do whatever you can in the flesh and in the physical, but if you don’t see to it that it will get the necessary boost and umph from the Spirit World, your efforts might be rendered nearly futile, or at least not nearly as effective as otherwise they might have been. (IV:191) Sometimes all that negative input about what’s going on in the world has a negative effect on you, and you need to plug in to My channel and input again. (IV:231) You must grant Me the right to communicate and convey whatever point I want to make clear in the manner I consider most effective… (IV:242) You can see the light, or tell the light is there by the contrast against the dark.

You can tell what impact My influence on your life has by comparison with the times when it’s not there, and you allow the enemy to interfere. (IV:247) You can influence and manipulate and steer things toward a positive, upward development, or you can let it all slip and crash. What are you going to do? (IV:261) You determine what you allow to influence you and what will have power over you! (IV:420) It's an art to discern the voices that are affecting and influencing you, to really choose that which is good for you, and eschew that which is not. (IV:447) Forgiveness is a healing attitude for the soul to take, not just for the recipient, but also for the one who extends it. It’s got a self-healing effect. (11:107) Remember that We are stronger than all those worldly influences, even though those are more visible; but it just shows and demonstrate what an important factor faith is. (16:34) Don’t let the influences of bad and evil circumstances the devil creates, conquer or overcome you! It’s your job to overcome them and show through your faith Whose Power and Strength is greater than the evil one’s. (16:49) Have some faith in the superiority of heavenly Strength and Power over that of the enemy and his hoards, including their influences on others around you! (16:54) What you need to learn is to resist the influences of evil on you! (16:56) To be more concerned about others would definitely be a plus-point in learning to make love the greater force of influence and motivation throughout that life down there, even if it’s a little tough to do so when the majority of those around you don’t. (16:57) To learn not to let the influences of the majority of others around you have the negative power on you that their influence has, is another part of that grand lesson of the final chapter of the history of the world under our enemy’s reign. (16:67) Keep your spiritual sight geared towards and focused on the heavenly Light! Remember that that will make you the only blessing and positive witness and influence factor on others! (16:68) With the enemy’s influences over the masses having increased in such a way, you can imagine why he’d prefer to rule the world through the AC at a later point in time than predicted. (16:74) If I wasn’t someone with pockets stuffed with money – and the one of My disciples who was in charge of it turned out to be My traitor, that should give you a little glimpse of My attitude towards money and worldly riches! – With a hint whose influence and power that stuff does come from. (2016:78) It’s not easy what you’re having to go through, and will have to; but those hard times will have the desired effect on you to make of you more of what I want you to be. (16:82) The Strength of the Spirit definitely can have its effects in the physical realm, just as all Creation originally was. (16:90) It’s the Spirit that gives you the necessary strength to overcome any negative influences of your surroundings! Rise above the influence and effect of physical conditions and get into the Spirit! The Spirit is what gives freedom from all the hindrances and negative effects of the physical world around you. (16:95) It’s time to get back into the fighting gear! Not just passively resisting the evil surrounding you, but managing through the victorious (by faith) state you’re in to have a positive effect on those around you! Don’t be dragged down by the evil influences and circumstances down there, but keep your vision Up Here, the final winning side – even if it may temporarily look as if the evil’s winning… but just for a relatively short time! (16:97) Appreciating what you didn’t before is a major purpose of the Lessons of Life. And it’s the hard time of lacking those blessings previously taken for granted that are the effective point in those lessons. (16:108) The choice between good and evil should have a long-lasting teaching effect on folks; even though you know that after a thousand year reign of Good on Earth, folks will get side-tracked again by the enemy, to teach the final lesson. (16:112) With circumstances on Earth on the most drastic downhill-slope of history, you must learn to overcome their spiritual effect on you! (16:140) You have to learn to handle the not so pleasant circumstances and overcome their influence on your mood and emotions.

The enemy’s trying to make you feel as if My input for you doesn’t have any positive influence on you with his attack of negative moods, but let it also be a reminder of the fact that you’ve got to be a doer of My Word, not a hearer only! When the enemy almost manages to convince you that his negative powers and influence are greater than My positive ones, it just means you’ve got to resist and fight him. Living by faith means to attain the ability to resist all influences of negative circumstances around you. (16:144) Let your communication with others be run and motivated by love, and don’t let any of the evil influences of the enemy sink in! (16:162) Make the Holy Spirit what engulfs you and surrounds and empowers you in spite of all the enemy’s influences around you! (16:166)

A selfish “tribe”… the enemy and his crowd. And you can definitely tell that they’ve influenced the majority of the world population to tune in to their gear… (16:171) There’s the factor whether you just want to passively enjoy good and easy times, or put some action into being a positive influence to those around you. Going through trials about having lost heavenly moments is something that influences kids, unless you manage to overcome those trials and make an effort to make the best of whatever circumstances you’re caught up in. (16:172) Having the world you live in being taken over by the enemy of your God, Savior and His followers is where the effect of the choices of the majority of people comes to its result, and it’s just part of the important lesson for mankind to make the proper ones in the future… (16:173) Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and don’t let the coming kingdom of Satan influence and drag you down! (2016:177) Do your best to make things better, become a sample how to do things and act better… and don’t let things going on around you influence and affect you to the point where you even become worse! Deal with behavior, circumstances… whatever’s unpleasant to you, and don’t let it make you even more unpleasant for those who have to live with you by losing control over the sort of effect it has on you! (2016:186) Can you get ready to deal with and handle some hell on Earth? Remember that it’s people’s choices that brought it in! And to learn the repercussions and effects of choices is a major lesson of the School of the universe. (2016:196) Having to learn to put up with demonic influences should teach you to be mindful of, and more on the attack against them, or make a greater effort to resist them. (17:4) The emptier of worldly influences, the greater the space and room for heavenly influences from Above – the more room inside for the Holy Spirit. (17:8) A letdown effect on your self-confidence is another aspect in which I’d like you to put more trust and confidence in Me and heavenly Strength and Power, instead of your own abilities. - Simply because what will be needed for the tough times to come will be more than you could manage in your own strengths and capabilities. (17:12) Just as most folks can’t see or believe My Word coming into effect… you can sense it, trust Me for it and the fact that not too far from now, you all will see it happening as well. (17:14) Relying on the Spirit is all based on faith in what you can’t see right now. And it’s a fairly rare gift these days, with folks being filled with visual inputs more than ever before in history. – One other side-effect of TVs, movies, computer screens and quite a few other factors. (17:37) With folks around you not seeing things the same way, it’s a little tough to be or stay on the preparation-for-the-roughtimes-track, but that’s where you’ve got to allow My influence on you be stronger than theirs. Of course, letting My influence on you be stronger than that of folks is not an easy task, and it’s one of those challenges of faith, but if you want to live the faith-life, that’s what you’ve got to learn! (17:38) Do not allow circumstances to get you into an angry or depressed mood… nor let the influence of physical circumstances and conditions rule you, but the Spirit of God! It’s a tough one to resist the influences of other humans’ behavior you lived most of your life under the influence of, but that’s just part of the task of learning to resist. (17:39) Make your faith bigger than the effect those physical conditions and circumstances are having on you! Keep your vision on that goal of sharing your faith! - Making it grow first of all, in spite of all that surrounds you, to the extent where it will have an influence on others! That’s what My disciples are supposed to be like. (17:65)

The lie that everything popped up by itself is what the majority believes and broadcasts everywhere, and it’s hard to resist that sort of massive influence. (17:75) Your own mind does have its influence, and a lot of what you do, write and say is based on your personal experience. That this includes blunders and mistakes, you might say is natural. (17:76) Learn a bit more of acceptance of things and others’ acts and behavior around you that you need to learn to put up with and not let them have a negative influence and effect on you! (17:78) If folks around you tend to have more of a negative influence on you, remember that it should be your task to point others’ tunings around you in the right direction! I know, it’s a fight, being surrounded by the spiritual influences of the enemy side all around you, but see that as part of the challenge: to stay tuned in to Us, in spite of all that’s going on around you! (17:91) Take the shield of faith to protect you from negative effects of physical situations, conditions and circumstances! (17:93) If you see what effect enjoyment has on kids when that’s just about all their characters are focused on, you see that that modern addiction to it isn’t exactly a positive. When they run out of their “drug,” the behavior becomes nearly unbearable for you. So, don’t let it have the same effect on you, and don’t become unbearable when circumstances aren’t good or perfect enough for you! You should make the effort of fighting against the evil influences of the one who spoiled you through comfy circumstances. If life is getting rougher, don’t see it as a negative, but see the positive effect it’s having on you, of becoming less spoiled by the comfy circumstances of life you’d been getting used to! (17:95) Life can be a misery, but how to prevent that, shouldn’t be too much of a mystery, if you have been taught before about the miraculous, positive effects of prayer. While trying to weaken the effect of negative influences on you as much as you can, perhaps recognizing that dealing with them in the right manner, instead of seeking to escape their effect on you, might just result in an important bit of positive outcome… (17:96) Don’t let your faith be influenced by what you see and experience around you in the physical, but point your entire confidence in the unseen Factor Up Here! If the conditions down there are getting tougher, it’s just all the more incentive to point your faith and confidence in the right direction. - Not letting it be influenced - and thus, weakened - by all that’s going on around you down there, but staying spiritually focused on your Goal and Destination. (17:98) I said faith just has to be the size of a mustard seed, but with the enemy’s enlargement of the hellish state on Earth, that mustard seed has to grow in order to help you rise above his major influences on the world in its greatest state of darkness coming. (17:99) Making the effort to stay on My wavelength instead of getting too influenced by physical circumstances will be a sample of faith that many need and appreciate. (17:100) When the ego’s the most important part of someone, there’s little chance for them to spot their own wrongdoings and sins, and thus the need for Salvation from their eventual effects and causes. (17:102) You have to fight against the enemy’s evil in this world, including his influences on the world and on yourself! (17:104) The enemy knows what areas in your life you still give him an opportunity to enter and have some influence. So, it’s still important to resist him and his temptations, even if they might not be all that obvious. (17:106) Don’t let the present influence your mindset as much as the future - by faith! (17:107) Negative influences are like tastes of death, that even make you see death as the preferable alternative. But you have to get ahold of My Rhythm of Life… the stuff that all living things are made of and comes from Our Realm of the Spirit! (17:118) Make the effort to stay on a positive wavelength, and resist the spiritual and mental attacks and influences from the enemy’s side! (17:120) If I came to save you from the hell thereafter, put that faith in Me that I can also keep and protect you from the effects of the current and coming hell on Earth! (17:122) As conscious and aware you are of the enemy and his spiritual reign over the world - soon to become physical, - you should stay more aware of the fact that what it means and includes for you is that daily battle against his evil influences on your surroundings and against you - his attacks. (17:125)

Remember who’s basically in charge of things down there, and that you need My Strength and Power to overcome them! And that includes the effect he’s having on folks around you. (17:126) Don’t let the enemy drag you down with his negative inputs and mindsets! Keep in mind that My influence has to become greater in your life than his! Reject the influences your conditions seek to have on you, trying to distract you from setting the priority where it’s due! (17:127)

If you want to be recognized as a follower of “Mac Positive,” it’s important you stay on His positive wavelength, and don’t allow the influences of “Mc Negative” to affect you! (17:129) Don’t let circumstances affect you, except drive you closer to Me! (17:131) The surroundings are mainly influenced by the enemy’s forces, and you’ve just got to resist them and fight against them! To aim for My Light is what will bring you the victory over the enemy’s influences of darkness. The effect of unpleasant circumstances and conditions around you is a tough challenge, I know… a challenge of faith. How strong is it? What obstacles are you letting it help you to overcome, and get you to focus and aim beyond? (17:132) Just remember through the influence on whom the devil got this world into its helluva state in the first place! Relationships bring out the effect of weaknesses and bad habits… A big factor on the necessity of human relationships. (17:137) The impact and amount of the Help and Strength from Us in your life has to rise above the influences of the enemy. It basically all depends on whose influence you allow to take greater effect in your life. The enemy knows how to tempt you with worries, fear and doubts in order to weaken your faith, and thus, the impact of Our Strength and influence in your life… just as his input had an apparent and obvious greater effect of Adam and Eve with his temptation to get them to eat of the forbidden fruit, which basically commenced all the troubles in this world and Our creation. The difference between you and them being that you ought to have learned better by now from both, their experience and your own, to make the better choice regarding who it pays off to listen to in a better and more positive way, seeing the effect of the enemy’s influence all around you, and knowing from experience that that’s definitely not the better one, nor the one you should attend and listen to! If you think it’s just as bad as it can get right now, I’m afraid you’ll experience much greater and worse manifestation of his forces in the dark times to come. So, the sooner you learn to resist the influences of his power in the world, the better! (17:145)

It’s more important to Me than ever before to be and use a different kind, getting so close to our enemy’s ultimate reign down there, and his level of influence over the masses having grown to unprecedented proportions! (17:147)

…Information The Holy Spirit, the Comforter, is bringing back all these things to your remembrance, using the information that has been stored there somewhere before, to bring home new lessons I want to teach you each day. Don’t just let the things you learn inform you, but form you, shape you into something greater. You must learn to see with the eyes of the spirit, not merely acknowledge data and accumulate information. Don’t just accept facts with your brain, but come to know with the tacit knowing of faith, so you learn to apply the information adequately, and the right bits at the right time. - That’s when believing becomes seeing and faith becomes knowing. I have yet greater things in store for you. Not to elevate you or entertain you, but as an important tool and instrument of yielding vital information that will ensure your survival and that of many others, and consequently, the salvation of many others. Stay focused on your goal, just like a student would be focused on his diploma or final exam, his graduation, throughout years of studying, listening, absorbing information and material in school. Sometimes knowledge is the greatest stumbling block to divine revelation, because it interferes with what I would like to reveal to you and pipes up with its own input! When you come before Me, you must lay aside your own opinions, your own

background information as much as possible, and any preconceived ideas & bias, otherwise a message can very easily become tainted by what you "know." There are oodles of books written about what kind of care certain plants or animals need, but only recently have relatively few people begun to care enough to provide helpful information about what their fellow humans need. The (result of) loss of information in micro-evolution: fruits and vegetables are not as nutritious anymore as they used to be. They may look better through all that genetic "enhancement" & manipulation; they may in some cases even taste better, but they actually aren't any better as far as nutritive value and health factors are concerned. This coincides with people, how they actually seem to look better on the surface, almost as if to prove evolution right, but they aren't any better when it comes to true and lasting values... They've actually lost a lot of quality & "information." Although the best is yet to come in the world to come, as far as this age is concerned, the best human pair, as well as the best fruits and vegetables, as well as animals, already existed long ago, & everything that has derived from the originals has deteriorated somewhat in the copying process. While some things seem to have gotten better on the surface, technology has improved, progressed & developed, & so have commodities, enabling people to live at much greater ease than ever before, which again enables them to put much greater emphasis on superficial things like their looks than ever before, which may give a certain appearance of genuine improvement; when it comes to a good, deep look beneath the surface, there is actually no genuine improvement of life there. As people are finding out: with all the devices they're inventing to save time, yet they always seem to be running out of time & seem to have less time than ever. Paradox, isn't it? That's why it pays to see things the way I see. That crummy looking root or vegetable your forefathers ate may have well been a much greater source of vitamins, minerals, & thus health and nutrients, than all that "too-good-to-be-true" almost plastic-like food they sell nowadays. And their hard and rough life-style may have rendered them greater genuine happiness than all of today's technology & gimmicks can give you. It's not as if I'm telling you the exact same thing over and over. Each time I add a little bit of a new angle to it, a tiny little speck of a new truth and a new revelation in it, so that - although the fundament may be quite old - the whole thing grows, slowly, like a gigantic puzzle, bit by bit (information by information), revealing My Big Picture, in which you're actually participants. You can fill your head until it explodes, but what matters is what you do with every little bit of information, how deeply you allow it to sink in, so that it can be seen in your actions. Otherwise you wind up with a case of spiritual bulimia where you stuff and stuff yourself, but fail to digest it all properly, and so it will never do anybody any good... (Spirit Helper:) Welcome to the Great Link! The pool of unlimited inspiration and exchange of vital information - the place

where all holy spirits connect and become as one. It's not really "a place," as much as a gigantic phenomenon, a wavelength, an ethereal area and broadcasting range without limitations that expands throughout not only the entire physical universe, but also all other dimensions: the Great Link is the Spirit World. Here you are truly at Home. In the physical world you have causes for fear and anxiety, and you worry about the diminishing state of your substance. Here, there is no fear, because nothing diminishes, nothing can ever be lost - everything constantly grows, and there is only eternal gain, no loss, whatsoever. The genetic information for any complete life-form is already there in its simplest state. Although the outward appearance may change over time, the essence, the gist, the information in its genes, does not change. I begin My work with the tiniest unit. I work on the little things, and their precision, the small entities on which the whole show is based, the single units, single cells, to make sure that when they part, spread and grow, they don’t spread any corrupted information, which can result in deformation, and other less than desirable results. In order to prevent storms from wreaking the most possible damage, you need unity and communication, and the doors must be open for and exchange of information to take place. The worst thing to have is an “I already know it all” attitude. That is no way to prevent trouble, but the way to cause trouble… I begin My work with the tiniest unit. I work on the little things, and their precision, the small entities on which the whole show is based, the single units, single cells, to make sure that when they part, spread and grow, they don’t spread any corrupted information, which can result in deformation, and other less than desirable results. Just slapping theories together on shreds of information without hearing out the whole story has unpleasant consequences. (IV:19) It’s quite a revelation to most arrivals in the Spirit World, just how vast the difference is between worldly standards of information (with their relatively low truth content), and the heavenly standard of “the truth, and truly nothing but the truth.” It’s one of the reasons why My thoughts are so much higher than those of people on Earth: most of people’s thoughts are based on erroneous assumptions or misinformation, and quite far away from the truth. You could say, nothing could be further from the truth than mankind’s present level and wealth of information. While there’s a lot of valid information available, it’s not the truly valid and reliable information that’s largely being disclosed to the public. (IV:81)

The false information of the devil seeks to get man to place his trust in himself. All those smart, but really unhappy people may have a lot of information stored up in their brains, but a lot of it is false information, based on false and twisted definitions. It’s only the false input and information of the devil, the apostate, that added confusion, error and flaw to My Creation. (IV:134)

The head stuffing of the devil creates the illusion in people’s heads that they’re actually smart. - Loads and loads of useless information, creating an illusion of a reality that’s just a fake, and a poor counterfeit of the Real Thing. (IV:171) The entrance of My Word giveth light and understanding to the simple, but when people neglect My Word, the opposite happens… They may think they’re smart because of the quantity of information stored up in their overloaded memories, but what really counts is not the quantity, but the quality of the information they’ve got. The true and valid information of My Word brings insight and wisdom. The false, erroneous and in most cases simply untrue information that the enemy has been pouring out through the System has the opposite effect. (IV:176) No matter how much information you derive from the present world, it will never have the same pleasant effect on you as the kind of information I give you straight from My Realm. (IV:182) Knowledge and the supply of information may have increased, but the quality and value of that information have drastically decreased, so that despite the fact that people have more information crammed into their heads than ever before, they’re not actually any smarter. They just think they’re smarter. (IV:199) The goal isn’t head-stuffing or just acquiring knowledge, accumulating facts to store in your brain. You’ll probably make better progress by just taking each day as a child, ready to explore something new, rather than as a professor who can barely make space for another bit of information in his already crammed head… It’s the Spirit, rather than the cold, factual information value of what’s being said that truly increases your faith, and thus your spiritual bank account. You may figure, if information was the factor that got everything started in the beginning, then information must be the key to creation. But what you need to realize, is that the essence of the information at the core of creation is love. It’s loving information, to try to put it somewhat into human terms. The information is not the most important part of it, but love is. The information may be the more or less “visible” or comprehensive part of it, while love is the large space in-between those particles that can be perceived, but love is still the gist of it. It is love that initiates the information. In the beginning there was information, and that information was love, because it was also God, and God is love (John 1:1, 1John 4:8). (IV:235) Where the TV and other sources of information and input have taken My place in someone’s life, or the place that should be rightfully reserved for Me, a pool of false “knowledge” comes into being that simply doesn’t jibe very well with the sort of input I have to offer. Learning is not just about acquiring and accumulating additional information. It’s a process of acknowledging the other, absorbing and assimilating them a little more each time you communicate… It’s relationship. - All contributing to the huge, slow process of eventual universal integration and all of Creation becoming one. (IV:277) Basically, that's what life for Me and the Gospel is all about: passing on information that might bring folks to the conclusion that it just might be smarter to prepare for the afterlife, that's beyond this one... (IV:296) There’s a deeper knowing than the acquisition of information. (IV:466) It’s not a constant flow of new information or revelations you need, it’s daily guidance, or even just encouragement and strengthening of your faith, which comes from hearing My Word. (16:155) Information – and its quality – depends a lot on the source it’s coming from. (17:17) Great and positive qualities are apparently not as dependent on what’s in the head, as what’s in the heart. So, one’s personality and spirit aren’t ultimately based on knowledge. – Another ultimate lesson on the superiority of spirit over the quantities of knowledge and stored up information. (17:27)

…Inspiration Inspiration is essential; otherwise it’ll be cold dead works and words. (I:205) The trick is not just doing what you feel inspired to do, but doing something so that you will get inspired! (I:432) You're going to have to get to know Me a lot better yet, you're going to have to be more sure of Me, in order for Me to become a greater Source of inspiration to you than any people on Earth could ever be! (I:465) It's essential to keep up the necessary level of inspiration; the spark and incentive to keep you going for Me. (II:291) When you witness, you get inspired! Inspiration doesn't come from keeping it all for "me, thee, thou and no other," but the inspirational level was always strongest where there was witnessing going on, where people were really doing the job and pouring out, because that is simply where the inspiration will come from. Just let go and let Me! The more you learn that, the higher the inspirational level is going to be, the heat, and the Light of Love, radiating and creating heat, rather than merely reflecting it. Stay in pouring out mode and see what happens! (II:324) You need inspiration, not just mere brain-power and intellect. (II:543) Feeling "inspired" is not really a safe and foolproof guarantee for anything, whether the thing you feel inspired about is really inspired by Me. You've got to really make sure always that it's My inspiration and anointing, not an inroad or temptation of the flesh to make itself feel grander and greater than is due. (II:560) True inspiration is hardly ever recognized by your fellowmen during your life-time, that's just one of the things about the world and the way it is. (II:610) People often demand from each other a degree of perfection that they lack themselves. Instead of turning to Me as the Source of inspiration, they turn to a futile, empty vessel like themselves, fragile and imperfect, projecting into them hopes that only I can fulfill. (III:65) By channeling your excitement and inspiration through Me, and rolling the ball back to Me, you can be sure that everything is going to have My perfect touch and blessing: My perfect timing, My perfect pace, and you can rest assured that I'm going to do it for you, you don't have to do it yourself and in your own energy. (III:148) Stop regarding other people as sources of inspiration who might minister to you and fill your needs! It's not going to happen, because I expect you to be receiving that inspiration straight from Me, and instead of expecting additional inspiration from them; you must pass on what inspiration you get from Me to them. (III:249) What really makes a hit, is not any pattern of numbers one can follow, but divine inspiration. (III:263) Whatever you give and pass on has got to be inspired, if you want it to inspire others. It cannot be just cold, dead facts or figures or words... It's got to be alive. (III:268) Convinced that you are on a happier and more inspired wavelength? Then try to pull them up to yours! That's what inspiring others is all about. Failure to inspire others is often due to lack of vision and faith to even start. (III:287) The inspiration that stems from the feeling of having accomplished something in the flesh, is not 100% pure and genuine inspiration of My Spirit. It's not the same kind of inspiration that caused the explosion of My message at Pentecost, for instance, because the Power of that Spirit sought only to promote Me, whereas that other sort of inspiration seeks to promote your own act, and to secure your support and sustenance. (III:343) The Internet is the devil's version of the "great link." That's why he even tries to get you to find your inspiration and information there instead of having Me and your helpers reveal it to you from the Spirit World. (III:357) If what you're doing doesn't have love in it, it won't inspire anyone. If your primary concern is what will be in it for you, the financial potential or possible outcome, then it's dead, and it's no wonder it won't inspire or interest anyone. (III:358) All you need is a few words from the greatest Winner of all times to cure you from a loser streak and infuse some new zest and spark and inspiration and life back into your weary bones. (III:367)

If you make certain to avail yourself of My Power, there will be a different kind of zest behind your work, a greater certainty and knowing that you’re doing the right thing, more inspiration, and thus, less danger of becoming upset and frustrated in the process. (III:395) You’re just going to have to get over any lack of enthusiasm and inspiration that hits you sometimes, since it’s natural to feel inspired about a project at the onset of it, but it usually wears down the longer it drags on and actually becomes work. (III:435)

The main purpose of My Word is not just to instill some fleeting feeling and emotion of inspiration, but to ignite faith. Even if the inspiration level isn’t always the same, just as the emotional level in a personal relationship isn’t always the same, the feeling isn’t the goal, but the goal is the life you can build from a working relationship and the trust that it engenders. (III:438) I am the One Who’s giving you the ideas and inspirations in the first place. So, allowing the enemy to discourage you about them is like taking the credit for them yourself and saying they are yours, instead of Mine. Whereas, if you make it clear that it all comes from Me in the first place, you have the power to rebuke the devil and tell him, “Hey, this isn’t just my own idea, but the Lord’s, so, get out of my way!” (III:475) People have got to know that they’re loved unconditionally in order to come up with the inspiration and love to do anything that counts and matters in the first place. (III:489) How can you be an inspiration for others, and a sample of My Love, unless you stay plugged in to My Power and make sure that that’s what you radiate? (IV:32) 90% of service to Me is interaction with Me, your communion with Me, your devotion to Me, and I will do the rest through you. I will then inspire and empower you to do the physical part of executing whatever is My will for you to do. (IV:69) Inspiration is not something you can regulate or legislate or determine when and where exactly it’s going to happen. That’s in essence the meaning of the “wind” allegory: the Holy Spirit is unpredictable, like the wind that bloweth where it listeth and canst not tell from whence it cometh or whither it goeth. Either the inspiration is there or it isn’t, and if it’s not, you best leave it be and wait until it comes. So, even if you haven’t been feeling any big emotional “bangs” lately, or big hits of inspiration, you can’t say My Spirit has departed from you, either, because the flow simply remained in a steadier, continuous state. (IV:116) Spirit helpers will be a greater and more stable source of genuine inspiration to you than any frail and flawed physical human ever could… The strength and inspiration, including the happiness you seek lies only here with Me in the Spirit World, and in your availing yourself of It to the extent you should. (IV:127) A bold and convinced individual professing his love for Me might go further to inspire another individual to reach out to Me than all the choirs and worship bands in the world. (IV:131) Numbers and their pursuit can make your endeavors come across as mathematical, instead of filled with divine inspiration. (IV:200)

There is nothing that will stir up and fan the fire of inspiration as that desperation caused by a shortage of funds. (IV:214) Just try to stay plugged in to My Spirit anywhere you go! Try to stay inspired! (IV:236) Refrain from feeding yourself questionable input simply for the sake of consumption or entertainment, otherwise you’ll be too full for My input, and accordingly, your faith, your level of inspiration, and thus, whatever you have to give to others, will suffer from it! (IV:277) If you want to inspire others and awaken flames in their hearts of hope in a better world, quite different from this one, then it helps to have a little bit of otherworldly inspiration, feelings and emotions, too. (IV:393) As you can tell from your experience: less than wholehearted often fails to inspire and invoke enthusiasm… (11:28) Try to stay tuned in and plugged in to Me as much as you can; and when you run out of the inspiration, just get plugged in again! (2015:32) Don’t feel too bad about feeling “out of it” down there, but do all you can to make the best of it, by inspiring other folks’ interest in the Place you’re headed! (2015:228) Let the mess around you inspire you to do something positive about it! (16:40)

Praying for the help and inspiration from Above is one of the primary things you ought to do and get into the groove of! (2016:61)

When you don’t know what to do, that’s a good reason to get in touch with Me and let Me inspire you. (2016:70) The Day I’ll come to pick you up: Encouraging and inspiring news concerning the greatest and most positive Change of world history? Keep your vision and spiritual focus – your expectation – geared towards that! (16:107) A good type of feelings: The kind that comes from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (2016:151) If you’d like to do better and be more of an inspiration to those around you, having to come before Me to get My input to help and strengthen you to make it through the day is just something you’ll have to get used to: not making it without Me. (2016:189)

It inspires you when you keep your vision and goal set Up Here instead of down there. (17:48) Set your outlook out of that world and gear it to the better, everlasting One coming! You’ll see: that’s the way you’ll manage to inspire others. You need to set your focus on Our World, your true and lasting Home, in order to inspire others to want to get Here, too! (17:80)

It should be your task to point others’ tunings around you in the right direction! But first of all, you’ve got to be tuned to the right direction yourself. Otherwise, how can you inspire others to do so? (17:91) Trust Me that when the times come for you to do certain things, I will give you the inspiration and incentive to do them! Learn to wait until the necessary inspiration comes to do those things in My Might! To do things at the right time, with My inspiration and not without, is one of the ways that distinguish Mine from those of the ones following their own instincts. (17:116) Wanna be a true artist? Make a beautiful picture of your life through the inspiration of the Creator of it all! (17:143)

…(Lasting/Spiritual) Values The things of Earth are not edifying, but more often than not a distraction and hindrance from learning the more important and eternal values of the Spirit. (I:412) "Strengthen the things that remain" is the message that would appropriately describe what I want you to convey to the world, and how can you convey that successfully and effectively, unless you first live it yourselves? The things that remain are the things of the spirit, the eternal things. Things like physical relationships, marriages, families, etc., have all proven to be more fragile and subject to time than ever before. The reason for this is, that the lasting values that used to strengthen relationships before, have been removed from them, and those were precisely the spiritual ingredients I want you to help people to re-discover. (I:427) The only eternal value that you can take with you from this world into the next, are the souls you're winning for Me. (I:599) Strengthen the things that will remain, both, for you, as well as for those you will minister to, as you will give them priceless opportunities to invest in Eternity and My eternal values, as opposed to living visionless, selfish and materialistic lives! (I:611) Stay focused on the essential things, on the values that remain! (II:71) It has to be something difficult, a big thing for you, not just any old thing that's easy for you to do, if you really want to make a difference and do things of real impact and lasting value for others. (II:162) The temporal realm is nearly unreal by comparison to My eternal and everlasting values. (II:192) People seem to look better on the surface, almost as if to prove evolution right, but they aren't any better when it comes to true and lasting values.

When it comes down to it, the entire system of values has just been blown up to look bigger, but is so fragile; one little pin will put an end to it very rapidly. (II:445) You've got to be in tune with Me, see things as I do, value things according to My standards of what's important. (II:493) What determines the value of something is not how big it is, but how real it is! (II:502) Everything that's worth something, costs something. It's got to cost you some of your time, your attention, some effort. But usually, folks prefer to invest all that into something else, one of the manifold distractions out there, and counterfeit sources of happiness, or their arm of the flesh, or some other supposed "shortcut" to Heaven or happiness. (II:624) Remember that everything that's worth something, costs something! You can't expect to get something out of anything, if you're not ready to put something into it. (III:94) Because I am Love, the only value that counts is love. (III:104) That's why New Jerusalem is a golden City, to remind everyone that Here are found the values that will last, like gold, not the futile values of the world. (III:130) Your true value is determined by the amount of My Spirit you allow to flush through your life. How much do you allow others to be touched by Me through you? How much do you really give in order to be able to say you did your best, you gave your all? How much do you have left? Are you doing and giving all you can? That's what counts to Me. (III:135) Losses and gains are only numbers and statistics, and they may have their place of importance to some extent. But what's really valuable to Me is the lessons and the experiences they bear, like some deep imprint of life's wisdom on your soul, that gives your life the real beauty and value. Loss is gain if you look at it trough My eyes: it will be the gain of new opportunities, greater trust and confidence in Me, the lasting Factor in your life; greater dependence on Me, greater wisdom, greater treasures of experiences and lessons learned; the true values of life. (III:196) The System is a fake. It's not based on true values, not based on truth, and that's the difference I want you to show to the world. (III:278) Living souls are the most valuable thing there is, and the greatest evils on Earth are perpetrated by those who do not share that view. (III:287) In My eyes, and according to My system of values, inter-human relationships rank higher in importance than projects by which you can approve yourself and display your productivity. (III:288) Learn to value people just for being people, and not for whatever they may be able to do for you! (III:338) Invest your time not in the ways of this world, but in My eternal and everlasting and unshakable values! (III:355) Once you realize there is nothing holier, nothing more sacred, nothing more valuable than that flame of love in your heart, and that there's nothing the devil is more after, the whole thing takes on a new perspective, dimension and level of priority, and you begin to realize it's actually something not only worth fighting for, but that it's simply something you've got to fight for with all your might! (III:368) In establishing lasting and eternal values, sometimes the earthly values have to be abolished first. (III:418) You don’t really know what you’ve got until you lose it. Sometimes by losing it, you actually gain it for real. You get to know its true value, and thus, when you get it back, you’ll have it in a way you never had it before… (III:450) Contrary to what it may seem at the moment, tough experiences are infinitely more valuable than happy and easy times. (III:589)

The testing of your faith is more precious than gold (1 Peter 1:7). In other words, we’re upping the value of your currency. We’re making your faith even more precious, more valuable, and it’s going to be an even stronger force to be reckoned with on the market of life. For some, life is a refinery of the purest gold there ever was, while for others it is a furnace, burning up all those other, less than true and eternal values. (III:590) Remember faith, hope and love, three spiritual values much more important than any of the physical circumstances around you! (IV:88) Be wise enough to discern what the truly valuable things in life are! (IV:175)

Love is just about the only thing of true and lasting value when it comes to Our standard and heavenly criteria. (IV:200) The less there are around of your kind, the more precious and valuable you become. (IV:208) The fires of life’s trials will reveal which are the values that endure and last. (IV:209) Can you accept and say ‘yes’ to My system of values and doing things? (IV:271) The truth of My Word is simply the one thing that will get you the farthest, your best ticket and greatest bonus you’ve got in this life, so, see to it that you make the most out of it and don’t let the enemy diminish its value in your eyes! Just because others are so foolish to underestimate and despise its value does not mean that you have to adapt to their ignorance. (IV:275) You can only convey higher, spiritual and more lasting values to others to the extent that you uphold and live by them yourself! If your crutch and artificial booster of self-worth is gone and it makes you feel worthless, then it just proves that so far you have been adhering to less than lasting values. Naturally, I’d like to be the Party that is mainly responsible for your inner worth, and be the Factor that you rely on to determine your true value. (IV:351) If you want to look for real values, look for the kind I look for in people: “One thing is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” (IV:353) Faith is dealing with the things of real value, namely the things that will last way beyond anything that’s to be found in the physical. (IV:462) While physical beauty may decrease, spiritual beauty and stature increases and improves. Lasting values become more, while physical and outward “values” (according to man’s criteria) may diminish. (IV:499) It’s not so much the being different at any cost... It’s the different and distinct values you’ve got to set your mind on! (IV:516) Flesh fades. Only the Spirit will last. So, the more you invest in the Spirit, the more you invest in lasting values. (11:7) What if many of the things you were told are good are actually bad? What if a whole new redefinition of values is needed, a totally new and different standard by which to judge and evaluate the world? Basically, that's what I and My teachings represent, and I've given a few examples in My so-called "Sermon on the Mount" in which I gave My disciples an idea of what some of My - and God's - standards are, and how vastly they differ from the world’s. The reason most people in the world aren't happy is because their values clash sharply with God's. And My people's task has always been to convey those values to the world that would enable them to live happy and fulfilled lives. Of course, to get them to accept that their former or current standards are false, wrong, or not leading to true success and happiness is one of the toughest parts of their job. In a way, you've got to bring them the bad news first, before you can give them the Good News. You've got to let them know that their current standards, values and even so-called “truths” aren't real or where it's at, or at least that you've got better ones, and, of course, one of the greatest onslaughts Christianity has experienced of late is that of people questioning those values commonly recognized as Christian, criticizing them and challenging that they're really any better. Some of these criticisms are justified, and based on grounds of wrong applications or interpretations of My values; others are, of course, attempts of the enemy to discredit My teachings. (11:48) Maybe bleak and sobering circumstances help you to see the facts and priorities more realistically, according to My values and standards. (11:60) I’m in the long and weary process of shifting your faith from their paper money values to Mine. When those paper values start to crumble and falter, your faith in Me will still be a more valid force and guarantor of your survival than any other thing you’ve ever known and relied on. (11:76) If it’s real happiness you’re looking for, you have to look for it in the more lasting values of My Realm. You can only experience it on Earth, providing you’ve got Heaven in your heart. (11:79) The values you build on are a lasting basis, though perceived to be much weaker, perhaps even less real, while theirs, appearing to be strong and paramount at the moment, will vanish along with everything else in and from this world, like a vapor. (11:104) While the value of your time spent with Me and what you’re getting out of it may be disputed, according to the currencies of the world, its value is indisputably clear to Me, Who am lacking respect for those, but do measure things by values that will still hold their weight in the scales of eternity. (11:115)

Whatever you learn down there may not have the same lasting values as the things you can learn from Me! So, can you see it as something positive that you’re learning the difference between worldly facts and what I’m teaching and communicating with you? Well, which of the two do you think is going to last longer? – And thus, have a better, more valuable and lasting effect. (15:143) I wasn’t a wealthy noble-man during My earthly life, but stuck to a pretty simple standard. If that’s what I chose… well, it should give you a hint what’s the wiser thing to do. Not gear your life after the possessions of material things, but as much as you can, according to spiritual, and thus, much more lasting values! (15:153) Listening to Me is an advantage, as shows the chapter in John about the two sisters of whom one did and the other got offended about her not helping to serve Me and the disciples… Both deeds were good, but ultimately, listening to Me will turn out to be the better! – Even if there appears to be less work involved in it. As for Me: receptivity is a better surplus than being a diligent worker. Both capacities have their advantages and purposes, but listening to Me will give you the ability to give others more of spiritual values, which you ought to know by now I treasure more than the work most folks invest their time in, to enrich their physical existences… (15:161) It’s the most difficult and a harder challenge than ever, to resist carnal and material temptations, but the more you realize how vain they are, how temporal and empty, as far as the eternal, spiritual values go, the more drawn toward the other, spiritual side you start feeling. (2015:169) Giving spiritual things higher values in life than the material ones will always have positive benefits, since it shows that you’re putting the right values on the different things. If the spiritual has been increased in its category in one’s life, it will reveal its positive results eventually. Giving things the right kinds of value in life will show in its results, eventually. (2015:178) Gear your life a bit more according to your faith and the higher values you’re supposed to believe in: love as the main force, instead of selfishness! (2015:184) You ought to learn better about what sort of values to give the first place in life. It’s not the material values that ought to lead, guide and motivate you, according to My teachings. (16:26) What value is greater and more important to you? – The physical and material, or the spiritual? Just remember, “God is a Spirit” (John 4:24), and that should help you make the right choice. (16:27) Temporal well-being and riches are just not comparable to the everlasting part, values and spiritual riches. (16:30) Remember that what physical things have to offer is temporal, and only what’s offered through the Spirit has lasting values, far beyond the offers of that momentary sphere you’re currently referring to as “the world!” (16:44) Measure the value of things according to Our standards, the spiritual ones, the standards of love! (16:45) I’m teaching you to appreciate those lasting Values more than the earthly, descending ones. It might still be a bit tough to set the appropriate values on the unseen when surrounded by such a contrary world having the opposite effect on you, but that’s what faith is largely about. (16:73) You know how anxiously the devil fights to erase faith from people’s hearts and minds. That’s why I’m continuing to feed you with input to help you keep it. View it as the most valuable item you’ve got! – It’ll help to see you through, more than money or good luck ever could. (16:74) Remember faith, hope and love, the three spiritual values much more important than any of the physical circumstances around you! (2016:88) Sow your efforts and considerations of value to the Spirit if your physical abilities are getting weaker! (2016:95) Rendering your time to Me is in My view one of the best and most valuable things you can do. (2016:97) Even though conditions aren’t perfect, maybe there’s something valuable to learn from what you’re going through? Maybe they’re all part of the Lessons of Life. (16:102) Investment in My values is just longer-lasting! – Eternal, instead of merely temporal. Hard to believe that the physically invisible Strength and results of actions should be so much sturdier when not visible, and only perceptible through faith… but that’s the main point of the lesson on the difference between the values of seeing vs. believing. If you can trust more in Us – the Ones you can’t see with your physical eyes than in what’s going on around you, then congratulations to finally making it up the hill of faith… which will turn out a much more valuable investment than that of faith merely in the temporal things you can see with your physical eyes.

Just the fact of putting greater value on believing in what you can’t see with your eyes than the physical and temporal things you do, will show that you’ve eventually caught up with the true meaning and value of faith. (16:153) See the rarity and low level of truth down there as what makes you so valuable for Me! If I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, those who follow Me and My way of truth to life are very important to Me, especially judging by the level of rareness they have reached. Remember that rarity is a symbol of preciousness and special values! - The less common you are, the more special it makes you. (2016:163) Learn to put your sense of values on My – spiritual - riches, and don’t get caught in the devil’s trap of getting hooked on cash, resulting in the ultimate reception of his mark when cash shall be no more! (2016:172) If I’m not supplying and providing the things you need and want right away, it must be that faith and patience are more important needs, and that My heavenly input is more important for you than the things that would make life easier for you. It depends a bit on which you put greater value: physical and material things and items or My input. (2016:196) Learn to establish the values of things according to My standards! (2016:203) The more difficult way’s the greater challenge… but by faith you know that the greater challenge also brings the greater reward. It also shows what you believe has greater value: the “here and now” or the “There and then.” (2016:208) The value of your spiritual abilities will rise high above your physical ones as times get harder. (17:12) The enemy lets folks get by in their own strengths; or “blesses” them with his strengths and “gifts” – his imitations of the Real Thing and Our divine values. (17:34) “Few” goes above “many” according to Our aspect of values. Remember that the lower levels in the world are what requires and encourages humility, and that We definitely consider that a virtue, compared to pride! (17:72) Your true and lasting treasure is based on your faith… (17:81) Even though surrounded by temporal - and thus, not lasting - matters, you’ve got to gear your focus on the lasting values from Above! (17:93) Look beyond the temporal circumstances of the flesh, Up Here, at the lasting and eternal values of the Spirit! (17:108) Make appreciation for whatever I bestow upon you one of your lasting values and constant attitudes! It shows that someone’s giving credit down there to Whom and where it belongs. (17:110) Being different through Me and for My sake means: something precious! It simply raises your lasting value over a hundred fold above the average, even if it may seem a little harder for you, being cleansed and trimmed and filed to make you the precious stone you’re supposed to be. (17:116) When the unseen, spiritual matters rise above the visible ones in sense of value… that’s when you get close to “seeking first” and making Me the priority. (17:135) The spirit will become the most important, rarest and thus, most precious ever, along with all the values of the spirit that will have to manage it through the time of the devil reigning down there in the flesh… (17:147)

…Laws (Physical and Spiritual) In My Kingdom, the Standard of Love will be just as tough a law as the laws of man today. If you will break it, you will reap consequences.

The laws of physics don’t apply to you anymore in the hour of faith, when I call you to step out on the water, when I challenge you to rise above. If you focus on the needs of others, you can’t feel lonely or sorry for yourself, nor feel unloved, because as you give, you receive, as you pour out, I pour in, it’s one of the laws of My Spirit; as certain as the laws of physics, and more so. The fruits of the spirit are love, joy, meekness, temperance, goodness, faith, mercy... Against such there is no law, and the rules & laws of this physical World, that hold you down or keep you thinking about yourself, will fade away & lose their meaning. When you're bound by My law & rules of love, you're actually free of the physical laws & boundaries of the physical World. Do you believe this? Then rise above & overcome, simply by giving Me a chance to prove it & letting Me implement My laws & rules of love & unselfishness in your life! If you cling to My laws & the things that I want & seek to obey Me in everything, you will see the fulfillment of this, & you will witness My miracle working power & the blessings of true freedom in your life! Let's defy the laws of physics together, by means of the superior laws of the spirit and confound all those thinkers & would-be scientists with a science and knowledge that will defy all theirs, and that is deeper & greater than anything they could ever come up with in their finite minds! My path is higher than that. So much higher... Learning to fly. That's what it's all about. Just a little while longer you will be confined to the boundaries of the physical World with it's laws. Just a little while longer you will be bound to the laws of gravity that tie you down to the ground. Soon we'll leave all that behind. "Come fly with Me!" Make Me and others happy first, and then happiness will find you! That's one of the principal laws of the universe. The Law, (along with) the laws of nature, are going to be left behind once you enter the realm of the supernatural, the Realm of the Spirit. The Spirit World is not subject to the laws and rules of the physical world, just as a parent is not bound to the same rules he demands of a child, of “be home at five o’ clock,” and “go to sleep at nine,” etc., just because what may be perfectly alright for an adult, isn’t necessarily appropriate for a child. There will come a time when creation will have reached maturity and will be melded with the Eternal World and thus become subject to its same liberty when it comes to the rules and laws that right now restrain the physical. These are factors that worldly physicists and scientists are oblivious to, as the vast majority of them leave Me entirely out of the equation. If they leave out the Major Factor, how can they get an accurate or complete picture? All they look at is their immediate, physical part of the picture. If people insist on believing a lie, I will often give them a little “evidence” to support that lie, or rather, I’ll allow the Enemy to do so. In order to find the truth, a certain hunger for it has to be there. As long as they are looking for results that exclude Me from the equation, that’s all they’re ever going to find. Unbelievers say, “Coincidence rules.” Believers say, “There is no coincidence.” As a believer in Me and My Eternal Realm you believe that there is something greater than the physical world and its rules, that surpasses all physical laws. The more you establish the importance of your revolving around Me, your Sun, the more stable you will be as a factor for their lives to revolve around. It’s the order of the universe, symbolic of spiritual laws that govern the World that for you right now remains unseen. ‘Thy Kingdom come, on Earth, as it is in heaven’ means the marriage of the physical & the spiritual realm. The veil shall be rent! And soon everything that was hidden shall be revealed. Everything will be open! Now you see through a glass darkly. Then you shall see as I see. Without spiritual progress, there won’t be much progress in the physical realm. You think the Spirit Realm has little to offer to the physical? The physical realm is only a product of the Spiritual. Everything you see, feel, touch, is a creation of the Spirit. The time of the merging of the spiritual & physical realm is drawing nigh, and I want you to be prepared for it, by focusing more on the spiritual & less on the physical. If you see the physical as a result of the Spiritual, it takes on a lot more meaning. You can combine the physical with the spiritual, and thus convert every physical matter into an at least partly spiritual one. You’re working toward the recapture of the kingdom for the rightful Heir, and by "infecting" anything that's merely carnal, material and physical with a breeze of spiritual, it changes. Blessings flow from one party to another.

Pressure gets you going. Pressure is one of the physical forces in the universe that get things moving, and without pressure, there's stagnation. The children of men have always needed help in learning how to avail themselves of the powers and sources of energy that lay hidden all around them. Let them know about the greatest Source of Energy in existence that they can tap into for the asking...The Source of all life and all Power, even much greater than the sun, greater than atomic power, greater than electricity or gravity or any power they know. The Great Power behind them all: the Factor that unites all the forces of nature or physics, the great spiritual Force Which created them all in the first place - the God Factor that's not to be despised. Once you've availed yourself of the God Factor in your equations, then everything else starts making beautiful sense. All the question marks slowly turn into exclamation marks of wonder and awe... The spiritual building blocks are those destined for eternity, while the physical will largely have to undergo major modifications and changes and adjustments, before they’re going to be ready to merge with the Spirit World. In creating a spiritual diamond, jewel or gem when someone is “becoming gold” in the spiritual aspects, every little lesson involved in that process is important. The degrees of pressure and “heat” have got to be just right, the amount of adversity you experience, before you can be taken out of the fire again to be cooled by My fresh pure waters. A lot of things happened in the spirit, when disobedience entered the physical creation, and it set in motion a chain reaction of various events that would slowly but surely change the face of My creation, and that process is still happening. Some of the “laws of nature” that are in place today were not part of the original equation. But since death entered through disobedience, things naturally tend to decay. Things are getting worse, not better, and that process isn’t going to be reversed until I return to restore things to the way they were before… In the present, fallen state of man and all things physical, it’s no wonder that man more often than not comes to the wrong conclusions, including some of My own believers, because the human mind is less inclined to believe the truth than to doubt and believe a lie in general, just as the human heart is rather inclined towards darkness than the light, as John put it (Jn.3:19). The only thing that can help you reverse that state and process right here and now is the intake of My input, which is the same power that brought the original positive chain reaction of Creation into being, and which will restore it in the end, too, when all will have learned their lesson, or the big basic chapter of this part of history will be concluded. “The Era of the Fall” will soon come to an end, to be replaced by a better one. Just as everything physical has come from the water, so everything spiritual has also originated in one spot, and the beginning and the end both wind up in the same place… By fulfilling the law, I did abolish and nullify it in a sense, and I gave a new law. Those who insist on sticking to the old law will only time and time again find themselves crashing into the wall of their inability to ever keep it, and those who recognize My new law also recognize that it’s not something brittle, stiff and inflexible, but it is alive, and adapts to each individual situation, since in every situation that involves My believers, lots of heavenly counselors and helpers are involved, and each situation is judged on its own merits. (IV:93) Unless they abide by My rules, you don’t have to play according to theirs! You’re not bound by their carnal rules and ways of seeing things. (IV:107) It’s easy to advertise the Law of Love and the attractive liberties it offers. But if you’re not willing to pay the price that’s attached with it, namely to put your own desires on the back burner in favor of the others’ welfare, you’re only going to cause hurt, and will thus break the Law of Love. (IV:319) The camp of believers is divided into those who claim that God cannot change His own rules He has laid down for man, and those who believe that He can, and that nothing is impossible with Him. The former put the rules on an equal level with Him, and thus they often become their only link with Him, while the latter flow with the living flow of a living, moving God, a stream that does not constantly flow in one direction, but will wind and take many turns, according to the places where its refreshing waters are most needed, most wanted, most appreciated, and will bring forth the greatest amount of fruit. There are those who like to keep God in the box of His Own rules, and those who allow Him to be Master over everything in their lives, including His Own rules, capable of adapting them according to the need of the hour. Not a stiff, rigid regiment that cannot change or be altered, but a living Law, judging by the criteria of each individual situation: the Law of Love. (IV:326)

If you want to make it through what’s to come, stick to Our heavenly Rules, and they include treating your body the way you ought to, not abusing it. Don’t use your circumstances as an excuse to break the rules! Consider that circumstances are likely to get worse, in fact, the worst ever, and it’s time you manage to learn to cope with that: things not all flowing exactly according to your own desire. Expecting that from a world taken over by our enemy isn't very realistic! So, don’t support him by treating your body in an unhealthy manner! Try all you can to stick to the heavenly way, and don’t mix it with the ways of hell by keeping smoke and fire a part of your body!

Cling to Heaven’s rules if you want to make it through the tough times and you don’t want to have to be ashamed once you’ll get Here! Life may be a toughie, but don’t use it as an excuse to disobey Heaven’s Rules! Try to stick to Our Rules that We want and expect you to obey, and make an experience how to raise the flow of blessings into your life! If you want My Power and Spirit to work in your life the way it should, you've got to stick to the heavenly Rules, and not give Satan the chance to let part of his hell to take over in your actions and behavior! (15:245) When I came to Earth, I diminished the list of rules and commandments, but the Law of Love is still there, which also includes love and thankful gratitude for your own body. (16:124)

…Laziness (Lethargy) When your desire is to just be lazy and loaf around, the result will often be leanness in physical blessings as well. (I:456) It's a challenge to rise above laziness, the inability to see the need below the surface, and the temptations of the enemy to draw the attention away from the focus on others' needs. (I:490) Lethargy is a spiritual, hindering force trying to stop you from doing that which is most important to Me. (I:580) Sometimes I have to change the circumstances in order to get you out of the lethargic path. (II:317) Laziness and lethargy is a weakness, a sin, an enemy, which has to be fought. (II:371) It's easy, just plain normal, carnal sinful human nature, to be just drifting off into a lazy life-style. It doesn't come natural to most to be helpful, so that's something to strive for and make a conscious effort to work toward. (II:421) I don't want you to be lethargic or take it too lightly, thinking that things are going to continue forever as they are. (III:151) Laziness is an enemy that needs to be taken seriously; you cannot underestimate it or take it lightly. You need to confront it, deal with it, get rid of it, eliminate it and overcome it, just as you would strive against any of the other, perhaps seemingly "more serious" sins. Laziness isn't any less serious. One of its greatest weapons is that it doesn't seem as dangerous as other, more obvious sins. It’s just as much rooted in pride as the other sins: You figure, why should you do the work, when someone else can do it? In other words, you consider them your servants and put yourself above them in your mind, and that's pride. I have called you to be one another's servants, and laziness hinders your doing exactly that. Laziness eggs you on to behave like a little king or queen that everybody else has to serve. (III:347) Laziness can make you think that your own comfort is more important than that of others, causing you to fail to love... The enemy has used laziness to get you to give up too easily, to not hang on to love with all your might. One of the ugliest forms of laziness causes you to stop even making the effort to love people, because you just conclude in resignation, "Oh, what is it all worth, anyway?" (III:368) Laziness is never as inexcusable as when it hinders you to pray! (III:569) Lethargy wants to make a drag out everything, everything that could be loads of fun if you’d just change your attitude about it! (III:570) Contrary to what it may seem at the moment, tough experiences are infinitely more valuable than happy and easy times. (III:589)

The testing of your faith is more precious than gold (1 Peter 1:7). In other words, we’re upping the value of your currency. We’re making your faith even more precious, more valuable, and it’s going to be an even stronger force to be reckoned with on the market of life. For some, life is a refinery of the purest gold there ever was, while for others it is a furnace, burning up all those other, less than true and eternal values. (III:590) Lazy people sometimes hold against Me that they’re actually expected to do some of the work, and I don’t just present them the reward before they’ve ever done any work; but that’s simply not the way it works. (11:47)

It’s hard to be truly happy as long as you’re selfish or lazy, and the most effective way for Me to deal with those traits is for Me to rub them under your nose in concentrated form for you to deal with in another person. I give you some of your own illness and virus as some sort of antidote. You simply don’t want any more of it after that. It’s simply the most effective method. (11:90) It’s important to recognize laziness as a real enemy there that it pays to make an effort to overcome. That’s one of the reasons why I am letting you see the angle of a teacher who has to deal with his students’ laziness and reluctance to make any real effort to learn. (11:109) Selfishness can make you lazy, whereas doing more for others keeps you more active, and accordingly, not too depressed about so little you accomplish! (15:184) Remember that laziness is something to overcome, even for the physical shape and state of your body! Positive action is highly recommended! – And no wonder, laziness is considered something definitely negative. So, stay of the positive side with some positive action! Amen? (16:58) When it comes to survival through the days to come, a less lazy life-style will be the only chance to make it through. (16:93) Easy times spoiling your flesh aren’t really doing that much good to your spirit… not keeping you on the attack, and getting you lazy instead. So, anything that fights that sort of spiritual sickness can only be good. (17:10) If laziness has become a long-lasting weakness, and you’re getting almost too tired and weak to fight it, all you’ve got to offer the School of Life is a lesson of unpleasant experiences. (17:25)

...Light Let Me be your Light, and I will light your path! You’re overwhelmed by the sheer thought of how I’m doing this simultaneously to many of My children & brides? Well, one simple illustration of this is the sun: It doesn’t just give its light to one flower or blade of grass at a time, but to many, countless others simultaneously. That’s how My love works, too. (Spirit Helper - presumably a colored lady:) I think you better wake up, ‘cause God is comin’! Like that fire in the movie, ‘Out Of

Africa’! It’s gonna burn the old & light the landscape for all to behold the mighty things the Lord God Almighty will do! So, stand back & see Him burn! Watch Him shine! ‘This little light o’ mine...’ not so little, that light! You’re gonna see! Like many spotlights & a comet’s tail! Be ready for the Lord, bro’! Be ready & let Him shine through you! No more hiding your light under a bushel, boy! No more pretending you’s one o’ dem! No more sheep in wolves’ clothing – time! Time to rise, rise & shine! You know what that means? Rise above the crowd & shine for Jesus, boy, ‘cause He’s the Light of the World, & they can’t see Him, ‘xcept through you! So, will you be His candle, His torch, His beacon, His spot light? It’s vital that you stay in tune with My Words, for only the entrance of My Word giveth light. Heaven is the opposite of the selfish System man’s society is based on – the Devil’s System, really. One of the purposes of this Earthly life is to get people so sick of that system that seeing My wonderful heavenly System will immediately strike them as the solution, the answer to all their questions, the light after a long dark night. ...Like coming to see the light after having lived a life in blindness. You, My children, have the ability to see that light & carry that light in your hearts already, that’s what makes you so special. It’s just that the Enemy tries with all his might to get you to hide that light under bushels of pride & fear of sticking out & not being accepted... bushels of ‘coolness’, bushels of pretending you’re really not that different... Well, if you knew how beautiful that difference is, not only in My eyes, but also in the eyes of those out there who seek Me, even if they would never admit it, you wouldn’t be ashamed of it anymore. Those among you who I’m really able to use best are those who don’t hide it but flaunt it. They let it shine. They gladly share My love with a smile with anyone they pass by. They don’t care if anyone thinks they’re nuts. They know the principle of happiness. They just go out there & shine & shine & give & give, and their radiance grows, as they grow closer to Me, until, as My Word says, they shall shine as the stars & the brightness of the firmament forever. Look up to the real stars, the ones who are going to be stars in My Kingdom, & already are in My eyes: The cheerful givers, the little saints, the nobodies who make My kingdom possible, who give My existence - the existence of it all - a meaning...

the diamonds of dust, without whom My light would be invisible, & without which this World would be in total, absolute darkness. Love, light and life, they are one, and they are to be desired. Bask in My sunshine, seek for the sunshine of My love everyday & bathe your face in its light... Just lay your hand in Mine, & I will be better & more unto you than a light on your path and a known way. A plant will only grow so well as it’s being watered and exposed to My sunlight! My supernatural, unconditional love’s the same difference as when the sunshine bursts through, or turning on the light in a dark room. You can have the sunshine on in your life anytime you call on Me and listen to My Words. My Word will restore light where there was a gray hazy mist of lies, it will be a bright beacon on your path, and a clashing sword in battle. There lies much greater wisdom, knowledge , light & salvation in My Words, even in the most insignificant of My Words, than in all the so-called wisdom of man & their philosophies combined. Let the light in, and the darkness will flee of itself. Completely yield to Me, My light, My love, My warmth. I will have to become your only light, your bread, your water, and everything you need to live, for the Devil is going to try to cut all other means of supply. I have not given you the spirit of fear, nor of uncertainty, nor of darkness, nor of confusion, but the Spirit of power, of love, of light & of a sound mind. After every storm the sun will shine again: this is the way it has always been. For though much terror has been brought into the world & worse shall come: is not My power greater than all that? Isn’t My love greater than their hatred? I don’t want you to be overwhelmed by the evil you see in the world, leaving you stunned & unable to give life & light to others, I want you to be overwhelmed by My joy, My love & My goodness & light and to shine it forth & overflow onto them, like a fountain of life, love & light, throwing forth sparkles of the same everywhere you go. Impart that same light I have given you to those with whom you come in touch. Change the world by opening the eyes of the spiritually blind & proclaim that there’s yet another world to find, My Kingdom. If there wouldn’t be any opposition, there would be no challenge. You’ve got to have some kind of contrast against which you can see the light. It works like this in many other aspects of My creation. Unfortunately, the large majority of people prefer darkness to the light, for their deeds are evil. The greater the darkness, the brighter the light, and the closer we get to the End, the brighter you will shine. Woe unto a man if the light that be in them is darkness, and if the words they speak will be found to be lies to deceive many. My Words are a mirror to your soul & an exposing light of the wickedness & deceitfulness of the heart of man. You are like interferences piercing Satan’s cloak of lies around the world, his veneer of deception, you are My rays of hope. Rays of light piercing through his layer of clouds enveloping this globe. In order to shine forth with the needed intensity to pierce his gray layer of deceit, you must focus on Me & receive your power to shine from Me. I won’t expect you to do or accomplish anything for Me in your own strength. The greatest thing you should always seek, even though it’s not always easy, is the truth. Inhale it, absorb it, and reflect it, and then you will be a piercing ray of light that will cut through the Devil’s gray dome of clouds, and the darker it gets, the brighter you’ll be, and I’ll know exactly where to find you, when I’ll come to gather you unto Me. Love is the only light, the only truth, the only thing that gives a life purpose. When it comes to this world, I’ve always been strange & weird, and you know why. It’s not because I am weird, but because they’re so far away from the way things are supposed to be. They’re so far away from My standard of love, so deep into their darkness, the light scares them half to death. That’s why you scare them: you radiate that light that’s penetrating & invading their darkness, & it makes them feel uncomfortable, exposed, naked. They don’t want to be. They want to cover up, cloak themselves, ‘Quickly, give me back my cloak of pride, my cover-up, my reputation... let me hide my true self here behind this name, behind this pretense, behind all my fancy things, which make up the constitution of the personage I’m supposed to be in this society...’ When all they really amount to in this System is a number.

Independence is alright, as long as you don’t dream of independence from Me. It’s as if the Earth would declare its independence from the sun & drift off into space. It’s like a fish’s independence from water, or any plant’s independence from the light – or yours from the air... you can’t do without it. I’ve written it all over My handiwork: ‘you need Me, you can’t do without Me any more than a fish can do without water, a plant can do without light, no more than you can live without air: without Me, you can do nothing!’ You have already been hurt by the cruelty of the darkness & know that there is no other satisfaction for you than My heavenly light! So, come, My love, & open your eyes to visions of heavenly light! Catch some rays of heavenly sunshine, flooding your soul with glory divine! Greater light is here than the sun’s, greater & more eternal radiance. A light that doesn’t hurt the eyes & won’t scorch the Earth, nor cause disease. My light is only pure & good! So, My children, seek Me, for My pure & true light! Bathe in My light! Even if you see nothing else at first, with the eyes of your spirit: just a glimpse of My true, eternal, lifegiving, heavenly light will strengthen you & lift you up & encourage you enough to keep going with renewed vigor & strength! Consider My heavenly light that source of energy you need in order for your spiritual flower to really come to full bloom & blossom into its full beauty! The more you absorb Me, the more you will reflect My light. You have never lived as intensely & as thoroughly & as fully as when you've been out there on the battle field, fighting for the souls of man, beckoning them to enter My Kingdom & shooting My bullets of light & life into the Devil's territory & land of the dead. The less there is of you, the more the light shines through. You must decrease so that I can increase in you. Are you willing to become a little bit less of yourself & a whole lot more of Me? Your personal problems are tiny, unimportant & insignificant in comparison to the monumental task of flooding the Devil’s territory of darkness in My light! Oh, the hurt & pain a soul can inflict upon itself when it locks Me, the Light of the World, out of its world. There are many, countless in number, who live in that same world – one where My light never shines, but only the fake, artificial light of the usurper. You will be the beacons of My light to the world in the greatest darkness this World has ever known. Love is like light, which is reflected in the gazillions of tiny little particles of which everything consists, without which the light itself would remain invisible. Even so, love, without all the countless tiny little manifestations of it, isn’t really there. (I:248)

I have called you to open up your eyes and behold the land of the living. I have called you unto light & out of their darkness. Just like a flower will wither away if you hide it & keep it away from the light, so love will wither if you try to keep it to yourselves. It’s a law of the spirit I’ve established. (I:301) Stay yielded and moldable and in My Light, and allow the wind of My Spirit to blow you up into the air again when it is time to shine! Stay focused on the Light and keep in mind that your purpose is to reflect the Light! Greatness only comes through your constant willingness and determination to glorify Me, the Light, and your willingness to just be instrumental in making the world see that Light and to shine with My Light. Continue to face My Light and stay yielded and willing to reflect it, and you’re going to make sure that you’re going to continue to shine, and you won’t need to worry about the light in you going off… You cannot look at the threatening wind and waves of circumstances that would try to extinguish your light. (IV:32) “The less there is of you, the more the light shines through” means that the opposite applies also: the more there is of you, the less the light shines through. In order to let My Light shine through you, there has got to be less of you, that means, the voice of your own opinions and views must quiet down, you must hush, and wait until I speak through you. (IV:64)

…Listening vs. Talking Say something when you’ve got something to say! And listen, when you don’t! Too few people really know how to listen anymore, so, why not be one of those, skilled in that rare art? And don’t only listen to the words of their mouths, but try to hear the unspoken words of their hearts with the help of My Spirit! (I:367) If instead of just talking and blurting out whatever pops into your mind, you pray about it or make sure that what you're saying is going to be inspiring and comes from Me, you'll probably be talking less, but you'll be saying more! Listen more, hear more, learn more! Read between the lines; what is that which he's saying actually saying? What is that saying about him? (II:356) If you decide to wholeheartedly listen, you will also find a way to bring Me into the conversation. Listen to them with My ears, and you'll also have My Words to give back to them as a reply! (III:26) Sometimes you're just going to have to make a serious effort to keep your mouth shut, period! "Sometimes less is more" definitely applies to words! (III:43) A conversation, just like all of life, is give and take, speak and listen. The goal is not always necessarily to impart as much information as possible to another, but to have as large of a mutual exchange of information as possible... By giving them space and time to empty their minds and hearts, you create the room and vacuum for more new input you might be able to share with them. Be a receptacle for the contents of their hearts, and once they have poured out, they will also let you pour in some. (III:128) Listening is one of the greatest services you can render, both listening to Me and listening to others. (III:200) Thank you for being willing to listen, not only to Me, but also to others, for in listening to them you are listening to Me, too, in a way. You should never be too busy to hear others out and listen to what they've got to say. When they realize that you're open for their input, then they'll also be a lot more willing to listen to you, too. (III:284) You need a positive predisposition and attitude when you listen. You need to turn on your "ready" button: "ready to learn something," "ready to absorb something." - Even if it isn't anything new. (III:307) Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to talking. It takes humility to sometimes share less than all you could, to say less than everything you know all at once, and to maybe let somebody else do the talking for a change. (III:386) You’re interested in what I have to say, and I don’t take that for granted. A lot of people agree these days that one of the greatest assets someone can have is the ability to listen. They really appreciate it when someone is capable of listening to them. Well, just imagine how much I appreciate someone capable of listening to Me! I really appreciate that, too. (IV:419) Remember that all your words from your mouth are being kept track of! (16:42)

…Loneliness & Solitude Your loneliness is a godly loneliness; a solitude I use to draw you closer to Me, to strengthen our ties, to make your faith and convictions grow and enhance our relationship. If all things work together for good to them that love Me, for sure it will also include any feelings of loneliness you might experience. (II:79) Blessed are the lonely, for they shall find comfort in Me! I am the Companion of the lonely. You've seen people rot together, become foolish, loud and rough. But not so the lonely! The lonely have time to think, so they become profound instead of superficial. Nowadays people are scared and paranoid of nothing more than of loneliness, as if it were the greatest curse that could ever befall a man... to wind up lonely. But I don't want you to be like that! Sure, I know you enjoy fellowship and company, but I don't want you to shun loneliness or regard it a curse, because I use those times when you are alone to draw you much closer to Me than I ever could while you're distracted by others. (II:165)

I want you to become more conscious and aware of the fact that you are not alone. You're never alone. There is a cloud of witnesses and helpers always at your disposal, at your service, and it's imperative that you avail yourself of their help. (II:89) Company has often been your worst and deadliest distraction, while solitude has usually helped to keep you alert and on the lookout for any traps of the enemy. Contrary to popular consensus, there’s really nothing wrong with solitude. Many of My saints throughout the centuries have indulged in it, as I have also during My time on Earth. (IV:158) Sometimes it’s that very loneliness that each of you dread so much, that first causes you to pay the attention to Me that is truly My due. (IV:364) A little loneliness is going to strengthen and solidify your character and your faith in Me as your sole Savior and Hope when it all comes down to it. (IV:414) There will always come stretches, such as My lonely times in the desert, or My walk to Calvary, that you must take on your own, where you'll have nobody but Me, just like I had none but the Father to stand by Me in those moments. (IV:445) How can you sympathize with the lonely unless you’ve been lonely yourself? How can you help others and encourage them to face things on their own with nothing more than My Help, if you haven’t been in situations yourself where you’ve had to learn that? Were you ever able to feel this much empathy for “all the lonely people”? You really had no clue until you’ve become one of them. How about this for another, new approach of “becoming all things to all men”? – To the Romans as a Roman, to the Jews a Jew, to the lonely as one of them. How can you, unless you’ve been there? How can you help truly lonely people to overcome their loneliness unless you’ve also been truly lonely? And with no one left to cling and refer to for help but Me? How can you really tell others that I am the Answer and Key to their loneliness, unless you’ve first learned how to be able to use that Key yourself? (IV:493) If you feel you’re alone, know that I’m all that much closer to you! (IV:503) In your loneliness I want you to find My Company. (11:5) There’s nothing that makes you appreciate company, fellowship, friendship and love, like some time of loneliness. (11:6)

…Losers & Winners (Gains through Loss) If you give what you’ve got to Me, you’re the perfect and ideal material out of which I like to create My kind of winners. Winners of souls, that’s what I call winners! Nobodies, who don’t care what the hell anybody thinks about them, as long as they can tell another soul about Me, that’s what I call real winners! You may look like the total losers to the World, but, hey, are you willing to look like a total loser to the World in order to become one of My total winners? (I:283) The more you will adopt My viewpoints, you won't see the loss, but you will seek that which I want you to gain through it. Through the loss you may have not gotten what you wanted, but I got what I wanted: a more humble you. (II:234) Treat people like potential winners, not losers! (II:329) The only assurance and insurance is the way of the apparent loser, of him that is willing to lose his life for My sake; the opposite of the way of the world. (II:396) The future losers are allowed to pretend to be the winners here in this life. (II:573) It’s better to be on the humble side and cast in your lot with the "losers." The losers turn winners again, remember that, and how do you become more than conquerors? By being willing to be good losers, to look like the losers temporarily. (III:16)

It may seem to you as if you're losing ground, but you refuse to believe in the loss, because the eyes of faith can see that beyond every apparent loss there is always something greater to gain from it and through it. It's never a true loss, but only an opportunity for something greater to be gained by it. Apparent losses are only opportunities for progress, because "God never takes one thing away from you without giving you something better." (III:78) A thief, who by stealing thinks he enriches himself, only takes loss of his own soul. They don't realize that they're losing by what they consider gain, how they're only heaping up misery for themselves by trying to chase that artificial happiness. There is that which promises to be gain but in the end turns out to have only been loss... (III:85) The experiences and lessons learned in life are actually more important, as far as I'm concerned, than the things themselves, the losses or the gains... At the end of the day, losses and gains are only numbers and statistics, and they may have their place of importance to some extent. But what's really valuable to Me is the lessons and the experiences they bear, like some deep imprint of life's wisdom on your soul, that gives your life the real beauty and value. Loss is gain if you look at it trough My eyes: it will be the gain of new opportunities, greater trust and confidence in Me, the lasting Factor in your life; greater dependence on Me, greater wisdom, greater treasures of experiences and lessons learned; the true values of life. (III:196) It's natural to want to stand on the stronger side, on the winners' side. It's one of My toughest tests for My true followers, to always belong to the camp of the apparent losers... But that's precisely what forces you to look to Me. And I'm all you need. (III:210)

Only those who are truly willing to look like losers in this life have the stuff it takes to become a winner, and that's what it takes and what it means to be following in My footsteps. Too many of My followers still insist on wanting to look like the winners... (III:302) When you've got nothing left to lose, then you won't have any fears left holding you back from the battle field. You'll barge right in, come hell or high-water, defying any instincts that would try to make you wish to preserve your own life, your own reputation, image, or whatever may have seemed too precious to you before to give it up. (III:353) I'm not a loser, and since I'm fighting for you and upholding you, assuring your victory. (III:367) You’ve got something that some of the supposed “winners” don’t have. The more you cling to Me and avail yourselves of My Strength, the more you will realize that with Me you’re destined to become winners in the long haul. (III:424) The natural accomplishers always make the seeming failures look a little pitiful and hopeless in comparison… the “losers” compared to the winners, the “tortoises” compared to the “hares.” But time will do the talking, and only the end of each man’s path will reveal who truly walked the right path, and the glory will be God’s in the end, and not any man’s. (III:431) Sometimes it doesn’t feel like you’re gaining or winning anything new at all, but rather as if you’re losing something, and it’s true: you’ve got to get rid of some excess weight that will just hinder your growth and slow your progress down. (III:488) Keep praising Me, whether you lose or win, whether the day brings you “success” or “failure!” (III:494) You cannot help but win, even if I use the apparent losers to show the world what is true victory, not wrought of the flesh, but of that which truly brings life: My Spirit. (IV:12) I wasn’t a great winner of debates in My time, and that’s simply not what it’s about. It’s about winning the soul, not the argument. I’d rather lose an argument and win the soul. That’s the goal… Not tons of arguments in favor of your point, but enough love to win a soul, even if you never win an argument. (IV:19) You simply can’t lose by loving – even your enemies – you always win. (IV:26) It may seem as though they are the winners and you are the losers, but momentary appearances can be deceiving and the final result may be quite surprising, at least for those apparent “winners,” so, hang on to your seats and to your hats, because the show isn’t quite over yet! (IV:113) All that really matters in order for you to win is that I remain by your side, and with Me you cannot lose, you cannot help but win. (IV:171) The thrilling thing about Our Plan in life is that We make winners out of those who may look like losers to the world, and even to themselves sometimes… (IV:187) The attitude of a servant, as opposed to that of a tyrant, and the choice between either of those two is basically what determines your outcome in the final analysis of your life as either a winner or a loser.

The tyrants may presently look like the winners, but they’ll certainly be the losers in the long run, whereas the servants are going to be the winners in My book. Humility determines who will be the losers and who will be the winners at the end of this game of life. (IV:193) The extent to which you’re learning to trust Me calmly now in the face of adversity and loss will determine how well you’ll be faring then, when adversity and loss will reach unprecedented proportions. I’m training you to trust even in the face of loss. (IV:196) The gist of the fun in the game of life is to keep playing regardless of whether you’re winning or losing. Winners are only made out of those who keep making an effort and keep trying to win, even if they’ve been losing sometimes, or they haven’t been handed all the good cards… “How can we be ‘more than conquerors?’ - By being good losers!” You can show that you’re more than a conqueror, that you’re an overcomer, by being a good loser in the game and battle of life, and determining that you’re just going to keep on fighting, keep making an effort and keep giving it your best and your all, regardless of whether you happen to be caught in a losing streak of not. You know from My Promises that you’re going to wind up as a winner, come what may! You’re destined to win! No factor in your present situation is going to change anything about that. So, keep your eyes on the victory at the end of the road and keep a victorious attitude, because you know – you believe, which means you know by faith – that you’re destined to win! (IV:279)

So, you don’t look much like a winner in the world’s eyes… Do you think I did? Or any of My champions of faith? It’s the seeming losers that I have chosen to win the whole world for Me! (IV:280) The process of loss is very important to help evaluate things and restore their true value to the perception of things. (IV:345) Nothing is ever really lost, because I am well capable of retrieving all things for you. So, when it all comes down to it, really, for you there isn't really any such thing as loss. All your apparent losses will only turn out to be gains in the end. Faith is still the greatest commodity and quality you can have in this life, as far as I'm concerned. That includes not looking at your losses as such, but seeing them as eventual gains, just because I say it is so and promise you something better in return. (IV:376) You count the hard times not as gains, but losses. But I see it the other way around. (IV:379) It's the losers that turn winners in the end. The winners may think they’ve been the winners for all their lives and think themselves so great and smart, but the whole truth will not be revealed until they stand before My throne and I determine who were the winners when I hand out My rewards. (IV:396) If you’re right and they’re wrong about this present, physical world being all there is, then it’s you who will turn from an apparent loser into a true winner in the end… (IV:405) Why not forget about what you’ve lost and focus on what you’ve gained instead? (IV:427) The devil shall not cause Me any loss, but only gain of superior quality in the end. (IV:451) My business: to see to it that you gain more than you lose. Yes, there are losses; and they are painful, but I always give you back more, or something more valuable to make up for them, and the experience of loss evokes processes that make you richer and more “valuable” somehow. (IV:499) The gain is for keeps; the loss is only temporary. (IV:500) Loss is just something you have to learn to cope with in life; it’s something you have to experience, and it’s part of the “curriculum,” if you will. It’s hard to cope with, but eventually you will have to, and eventually you will. The wages of sin is death, and all the kinds of losses you experience in this life. My gift, of which you can be assured, is life eternal in which you won’t need to experience losses of any sort anymore, and that’s My contrast to what the Fallen One has to offer. He offers his “lossy” version of a software and program that only comes close to a cheap imitation of what I would call life, while My version is loss-less! I can offer and promise you the loss-free version of what you experience now, once you’re finished with this lesson, and that’s something to look forward to, and in fact, those prospects should cheer you up. (IV:519) There is such a thing as loss, and it has to be dealt with. Perhaps one of the reasons why I instituted forsaking all as a basic requirement for discipleship was to spare them the regret over any losses they were yet to encounter in their lives, even the very loss of their lives, since that’s what often was required of early believers, who often died as martyrs…

Great faith keeps assuming that I know better and that your loss is actually going to lead to greater gain. I take one thing away from you – your earthly life – to give you something greater: eternal life and a crown. (11:84) Trust Me for the outcome and that it will have a good ending and that it certainly isn’t going to be a loss! And even if there should be any loss of some sort, you know that I can often turn those losses into gain… (11:85) There is only going to be one Winner. The nice thing about Me being the Winner is that I have it rigged up in such a way that pretty much everyone will turn out to be a winner in the end. But the greatest rewards will naturally go to those who chose to play on My side of the game, and some will have to wait for a while until they’re even ready to admit that they had been playing for the wrong side… (11:106) The game of the world is all about seeking one’s own advantage over others… competition and winning over your adversaries and opponents. How much of a good, voluntary loser – just for the sake of demonstrating that you’re not part of that game – can you be? (11:108) Just as some people’s gains can be their losses, some losses also turn out to be gains in the long run. (11:109) If the enemy may have managed to make you feel and look like a loser, remember that “Losers turn winners again”! All of My disciples and followers who died as martyrs may have looked like the losers in the eyes of the world, but trust Me that they’ll turn out to be the true winners in the end of it all, even if the enemy was granted the right to put an end to their temporal earthly lives. (15:149) Remember who’ll be the ultimate Winners, and that We’re going to be the ultimate Winners and Rulers… and, hey: since you’re with Us, and on Our side, you’ll be part of the ultimate winning and ruling Team, too! So, even if it may seem like you’re part of the losers down there for right now, in the end, it’ll turn out you’re one of the ultimate winners on Our team, even if the enemy will make you feel like losers for as long as you’re down there while he’s taking over the power, which you need to know and trust, he’ll definitely lose in the end. So, have a positive and victorious vision, that We’ll wind up as the winners and Victors in spite of his temporal act of reigning down there! Even through death you will turn out as a winner Up Here! (15:183) One of the biggest and toughest tests is the one of having to take on the role of a loser, while all those that follow him seem to be the winners in that world presently run by him… It takes a big faith in a better Hereafter, and in an eternal God with an eternal life to offer, not just things framed by time. (16:9) Take the bad things and incidents by faith, trusting that We know what We allow to happen! Get the victory out of seeming defeat! – Just as I got the greatest victory of all out of My crucifixion! Sometimes the apparent and temporal losers turn out to be the greatest winners in the end. (16:38) One of the advantages of loss: Teaching you to appreciate what formerly you took for granted. (16:108) Aim your own actions and intents of the heart on the fact that Good and God will be the final Winners, and that – as My follower – you should to all you can to stay on that path, even if it may seem a tough one in a world currently still ruled by evil! Good will ultimately win over evil, and evil will be overcome to such an extent that it won’t have to be dealt with anymore. Even if the evil side seems to be more powerful down there right now… keep your faith and trust in the ultimate winning Side! (16:112) Even if you’re physically feeling weaker, consider it an asset of your move toward the higher Dimension where those considered weak in a world run by evil forces will partake in the eternal Scenario, and don’t consider temporal losses in the temporal world a loss in the long run, but an ultimate, much greater gain! (16:138) Those who are not persisting on having things go their own way are the winners, as far as We’re concerned. To be an apparent loser may definitely be the harder way of the road of life but then… what about the characters of the apparent winners? Which of the two kinds are more likely to make it Up Here, and are more favored by the Father and Me? – The apparent winners, or the apparent losers? The losers might turn out to be the winners, after all, according to Our heavenly standards. So, ready to be an apparent loser? (17:152) You mustn’t listen to the enemy’s input of calling you a loser! And even if you look like one according to the standards of the world, you know that those “losers,” according to My Plan and schedule are the most likely ones to turn out the winners in the end. (17:97) You’ve got nothing much left to lose in comparison to all that’s left to to gain… through faith! (17:143)

…Man-Pleasing vs. Pleasing Him Trying to please both sides, Me and them, is precisely what doesn't work, as he that is a friend of the world will be the enemy of God. You're going to have to decide that you just want to please Me, above all and no matter what, that's what it all boils down to. Don't base your belief system and your actions on what you see other people do, on how they treat you, or whether they like you or not! (II:204) You're there to please no one but Me, and once you do that, I will also see to it that you're going to start pleasing and reaching the right people. (II:485) Your role certainly isn’t to please everybody! (III:453) The need for man-pleasing is just as much a weakness as any other addiction; that need for constant approval and applause and affirmation from other people. Usually the type of people who need that and base their lives on that don’t have the faith to receive personal affirmation and assurance from Me, so they need to get it from elsewhere. You cannot please everybody all the time, and that’s not what you should waste your energy on. So few people care about pleasing Me, and I really treasure each one who does without wasting their time and energy on bending over backwards to make it right for everyone or anyone else… (IV:140) You can please some folks some of the time, but never all of them all of the time. Trying to please everyone and be popular can be a thankless undertaking if you’re in My business, because the devil will always help them to find things about you they won’t like in the long run; thus the harder you try, the more frustrating it will be in the end. So, seek not to please the crowd, which is pointless, but to please Me! “Please Me, and I’ll please you!” If you make an effort to please Me instead of them, you won’t come away as empty-handed, but I will always make My efforts in return to reward and please you, and eventually even lead you to those who will be pleased to make your acquaintance, as opposed to the vast riff-raff who will prefer to reject you, simply because they’re scared of anything that’s different. (11:38) Why do people play roles and stop being themselves? For fear of boring others, not coming across as cool enough, etc., of not being able to please them. (11:59) Learning not to be concerned about the opinions of others around, and not to get trapped into the groove of man-pleasing is one of the most important lessons concerning doing things God’s way, not people’s or one’s own. (17:34)

…Many vs. Few (Less vs. More/Quality vs. Quantity) I am not limited to save by many or few. In fact, I've always specialized in using the few: the 300 of Gideon against the huge army of his enemies. Or when Elisha and his servant were besieged by the enemy. If you could see in the spirit, you would also see that they that are with you are more than they that are with them. "For strait is the gate and narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. And broad is the way, and wide is the gate that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat." So, though in this world you may be

the few, the persecuted minority, be assured that they that be with you are more and greater by far than they that be with them. (I:589) Sometimes, less is more, if less keeps you sweet, humble and loving. Keep making more out of less! (II:275) The answer is not in acquiring or accumulating more, but in letting go, in giving away, in diminishing, decreasing, not increasing and adding to your substance or knowledge. (II:303) Less is more! Instead of trying to stuff your days with things to fill, watch and consume, just be more grateful for what you already have! Just remember that less is more, and sometimes you actually lose by gaining. You see it so many times with people, all kinds of folks who have made it to the top: they lose it. They just lose that original spark, which comes through that desperation, that emptiness, that hunger, that nothingness of being nobody. (II:480) Receiving My fullness in exchange for letting go of the world's emptiness, their fake fullness, the counterfeit of abundance, their "too much of everything." You should be doing more with what you already have, not do more in order to get more! (II:539) The amount you receive is determined by your spiritual hunger, which is diminished by the amount of other input you feed your mind with... The less you snack on those other "goodies," the more you will hunger for My pure milk and proper meat. Again you find that less is sometimes more. (III:209) Small numbers have always been My forte. While everyone else always put their bet on the strong and mighty and the numbers of their men, My motto has always been quality, not quantity. (III:213) I don't specify in quantity. (III:292) “Less is more” also applies to accomplishments. With so many numbers and statistics to boast of, you inevitably become high-minded, and your life becomes a conglomeration of numbers and statistics instead of the real you. (III:353) There will always be a faithful few who will end up blowing your mind, making it worth it all! When the majority has deserted you, the nice surprise is the few who stick! Who needs the majority? Who needs large masses and crowds? All you need is a handful that stick! (III:356) Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to talking. (III:386) Absolute authenticity is one of My qualities. (III:418) What you’ll amount to is not so much in what you’ve done, as how you’ve done it, in what spirit, whether people will have good, positive and loving memories of you while you were “doing it,” or whether you caused them pain by neglecting them in all your feverish “doing it.” (III:576) That certain little quality that the vast majority of people lack is faith in My Word. (IV:67) Another classic example of how less can be more: they base their essence, their worth and supposed superiority on the quantity of input they have and supposed “facts” they use to support their world view. All you have is basically one Book, giving you an outline of the history of the world from My point of view, along with a few hundred Promises strewn in that I will take care of you and take you Home when this is all over, and that I’ll come again and help you clean up their mess when they’re finished. You may have much less than they, but it’s real, and it’s lasting, and in the end it will turn out that your less was more all along. (IV:90) You’re up against a physical majority, and the only way you’re going to prevail against them is through your faith, which is what overcomes the world. (IV:91) Numbers were never something I went by, since I am not restricted to save by many or few. Numbers are irrelevant to Me when it comes to being “outnumbered” by enemy forces. A small minority with God can be more than sufficient a match against a physically superior enemy. (IV:103) The path of heavenly wisdom reveals – usually with time - how less can sometimes truly be more, and that you’re actually better off without certain things, even if initially they may have promised some kind of advantage for you. (IV:119) You’ve got to know that you’re not alone, even when it seems like you’re alone, or only a small minority compared to the host of enemy forces that surround you in the physical. You’ve got to know that they that be with you are more than they that be with them. (IV:127) Less is sometimes more, and the secret lies in the empty spaces that I choose to create here and there, in fact, largely everywhere, with just a relatively little bit of matter around in it for you to appreciate. (IV:164)

The entrance of My Word giveth light and understanding to the simple, but when people neglect My Word, the opposite happens… They may think they’re smart because of the quantity of information stored up in their overloaded memories, but what really counts is not the quantity, but the quality of the information they’ve got. (IV:176) The majority will usually choose the wrong path, because the path of wisdom and the path of life is simply the path of the minority. (IV:181) It’s the quality of the input and information that matters, not the quantity. You get a greater quantity of input via the Internet, but the quality is not the same as the information and input I give you. Less is sometimes more, nearly always, when it comes to luxuries that threaten to usurp My place in your life. (IV:182) Even if you may presently find yourself in a wee minority and vastly outnumbered, you’re in no way disadvantaged. Remember My stance on “the numbers of man!” They don’t really impress Me, and neither should you be impressed by them. (IV:194) According to your attitude the quality of your life will be. (IV:199) The flesh will always lure the flesh to walk the way of the flesh, and those who will be able to resist that pull will always be a minority, even if they’re part of a group that already constitutes a minority, just like not everyone among the small and oppressed minority - as far as the rest of the world was concerned – did receive Me, but only another yet smaller minority of chosen ones among them chose to receive and accept Me as the promised Messiah, Savior and Son of God… It’s shocking sometimes, just how few are really attuned to Me and choose My way… But don’t see it as a negative, or let it discourage you, but rather, let it drive home to you the significance of the role you play for Me! The less there are around of your kind, the more precious and valuable you become. (IV:208) The qualities of blessed and happy people: Happy people are humble. Happy people are grateful. Happy people like to give, they like to love and like to live. (IV:216) More often than not, I have availed Myself of single men instead of armies. I’m not limited by many or by few, and one person truly yielded to Me can be more useful to Me under the right circumstances than a whole army of folks who still haven’t grasped the difference between flesh and spirit. I’m still the champion of the poor, the small, the despised and downtrodden, who will nonetheless stare bravely into the face of a foe who vastly outnumbers them. (IV:220) The way of the majority, the way of the flesh, is the way of Cain, and the path of the minority and of the spirit is that of Abel… (IV:265) When you have less, it’s easier to appreciate it. (IV:345) Sometimes seemingly insignificant qualities are the ones that make the difference. (IV:512) The curse is a result of man choosing something other than My abundance and the life lived to the full I want to offer to those who follow Me. Consequently, life became a school of learning to do without some of My abundance, and the final result of it is an ever growing lack that you see manifested in many different shapes and forms on the planet. Some are starving physically, some are starving spiritually, and many are starving emotionally. Man was created with emotions and a hunger for love, and the great famine for love of these times is one of the crassest manifestations of man’s lack of My abundance. (IV:535) The factor that makes life difficult is rather the abundance of things accumulated than any lack of them… Less is sometimes more; quite often in fact: more quality of life, more happiness, more room for other factors than material things to fill your life, your hearts, and bring you bliss and joy… The less you’re bogged down by things you already have, the more new stuff I can give you and pour into your life… Not necessarily material possessions, but the kind of things that truly make your life richer… Maybe the less you try to be in charge of providing for yourself what you think you need to have, the more I can supply you with what I know you really need in order to be happy! Maybe you’ll even find out that not only can less sometimes be more, but that a whole lot less can turn out to be a whole lot more. (11:15) I like to be that “more” in your situations of “less.” (11:78) There are times of plenty and times of scarcity. You’ve got to learn how to deal with them both. Only plenty would spoil you, and the times of scarcity make you appreciate the plenteous times and draw you closer to the One Who gives it all in the first place, Who can sometimes remain neglected among all the hubbub that plenty brings… (11:178)

It’s not so much the quantity that matters, but the quality! A little is sometimes worth more than a lot, so, get used to, and learn to appreciate the slightly lower quantities, but rely on and take advantage of the quality more, instead! Little is much, if I’m in it! (15:211) Include acceptance into that list of the qualities of love you need, and let it overcome the tendencies toward selfrighteousness! (16:50)

The quality of your life absolutely depends on whose voice you’re going to listen to and follow in your deeds and actions. Even if the majority of those around you tend to make the wrong choices, the question is: are you able to resist that temptation and still choose the right things to do, even if the majority of folks on the planet won’t? (2016:67) Even if your physical strengths are sinking, take it as a plus if that’s causing your spiritual qualities to go up! (2016:73) Thankfulness is a good quality, and a lack of it will show in its fruits and results. (2016:84) Even if the majority of the rest of the world thinks that things will just keep on going as usual, and as they always have… Let’s just say: you know better. (2016:100) Trust in Me is a good quality to obtain. (2016:139) What matters is not the quantity of your actions and activities, but the quality, and what you’re putting into and what motivates you right now. When you’re concerned about applying the best quality, remember what it amounts to, as far as I’m concerned: Love! (2016:148)

As much as you sow seeds of Love from Heaven, unfortunately the amount of darkness the enemy is sowing with his masses is just more immense. But let it be another sign to you that with Us it’s not quantity what counts, but the quality. (2016:160)

Even though the physical numbers of the forces and slaves of evil down there may outnumber the visible Forces of good, remember that that’s why faith in what you can’t see with your physical eyes is so important; and once realizing that, your confidence in the Power will rise and grow to a state it will help you overcome the physically visible manifestations of evil around you. It’s a fight of good vs. evil, and with the fact of the forces and fighters for the good being far outnumbered by their spiritual enemies overtaking the physical realm pretty much for good in the days to come, it takes a lot of faith in the small amounts from the right Side enabling its followers to make it in spite of being outnumbered. It’s the quality, not the quantity, that really counts. Not the numbers, but what you’re made of, and what forces you cling to. So, even if you’re part of the minority of heavenly citizens down there, let us prove through you that heavenly quality is much more valuable, and ultimately more powerful than the masses of evil currently reigning down there! I started My movement with just eleven folks following Me down there. And as far as My true followers are concerned, they’ll always be a tiny minority in the world run by our enemy… (2016:170) Sheep are most likely those who don’t look too much like they fit into the groove the majority of folks down there are set in to, either. A selfish “tribe”… the enemy and his crowd. And you can definitely tell that they’ve influenced the majority of the world population to tune in to their gear… To allow oneself to be selfish is a quality of the kind of crowd you wouldn’t want to belong to. (2016:171) That’s one of the factors of being one of the few, instead of the many… the majority: The way of the masses is a wide road going downhill, without the abilities of seeing what’s coming… (2016:175) Remember to keep looking for the few! – The relatively few looking for a way out of this helluva mess the enemy’s creating out of Our Creation! (2016:184) Chaos is one of the “qualities” of the enemy’s rulership over that planet; and the greatest victims are those who cannot handle it. (2016:186) The most needed quality right now is trust in Me, that I’ll pull and see you through whatever’s coming. (2016:205) Even if right now it may make you look and seem a little weird as not part of this world you’re in: as the development movement goes further downhill, it will turn out to be less of a negative quality in the eyes of others, too. (17:14) Will you keep on even when the majority gives up? (17:16) Great and positive qualities are apparently not as dependent on what’s in the head, as what’s in the heart.

- Another ultimate lesson on the superiority of spirit over the quantities of knowledge and stored up information. (17:27) Dependence on Heaven’s Help will be the quality to see folks through what’s coming, not former own abilities. (17:30) Remember that My prophets have always been a tiny minority! (17:37) Learning to live with and on less is good preparation for what’s to come. So, don’t see it as something negative! See it as part of what you need in order to get ready for what’s coming! Remember that “little is much, if God is in it!” (17:64) Remember that “many are called, but the chosen are few (Mt.22:14)!” So, consider it a privilege to be one of the chosen few! Another aspect of why “few” goes above “many” according to Our aspect of values. Remember that the lower levels in the world are what requires and encourages humility, and that We definitely consider that a virtue, compared to pride! Remember that the less there is of you, the more I can make out of you! (17:72) The quantity is not what counts as much as the quality, be it the quantity of folks or financial assets, or the masses of tales pushing their views… Quality is comparable to diamonds and gold found within large amounts of earth, pebbles and rocks, but making them a lot more precious by that comparative rarity. (17:81) The goal is that you become a winner, even if the enemy tries all he can to make you look like a loser, and be a loser, if you give in to him. (17:94) Keep fighting, remembering you’re on the Winners’ side, even if during this life and on the physical side it may not always seem like it, with the folks’ majority obviously continuing to vote for the enemy, accepting his deceit and temptations. That’s why I’m proud of My resisters, even if they’re the minority by far. Or perhaps especially because they are. If the Creator and His Son have to look at the evil and negative most folks are making out of their world, you can imagine that seeing at least a few exceptional cases is definitely what cheers Them up and makes Them willing to do just about anything for those few. (17:114) The challenge is to learn to make it through rough days and times with My Help. Without recognizing the need for it, who’d ever do it? You’re not one of many who do, but one of the few. (17:119) Remember: you’re not part of the majority, but rather, part of a smaller minority… but that kind who’ll contribute to the positive course the world is heading ultimately, despite the negative forces presently grabbing hold and taking charge of it. Remember that minority or rarity in aspects like diamonds and gold equals “precious!” (17:121) Remember My statements about many vs. few, and how difference is one of My major attributes in that case… Not following the downhill roads of the majority, but be called to follow My small and steep different paths up! The ways of faith may be strange ones compared to the ways of the masses, but if you’ve got a glimpse of where the masses are heading, you can only conclude that the way of faith is the better option. (17:123) Life down there’s a rough one because of who’s in charge and the fact that folks down there “inherit” a lot of the habits from their “boss.” You can tell that those truly following Me are a tiny minority in comparison. But that makes them all the more special. My true folks are definitely special folks… even if becoming rarer all the time with the development down there. (17:139)

…Modus Operandi You must expand your horizon and modus operandi to working with multiple members and partners in this body, My church, learning to tune in to them, and being open to input from them at any given time, requesting their input, counseling with them, checking in with them, both, your team members on Earth and in the Spirit World. (III:63) Give to others of all that I have blessed you with! That's the m.o. of the future. It's the only modus operandi that has any future, for that matter, for the selfish mode of this present world will soon pass away. "The world passes away and the lusts thereof (1John 2:19)..."

The lust of the flesh, of the eyes and the pride of life are all about taking, about selfish consumption. But "whoso doeth the will of God," which is, to give to others, instead of selfishly taking from them, "the same abideth forever." It's the eternal modus operandi, the one ordained from the beginning, the one from which mankind has strayed, the one you must find the way back to and show others as well. (III:96) To do things better and in a more Spirit-led way than it has been done before, you're going to have to continue in a Spiritled m.o. and not get all hyped up in the flesh, thinking you're going to have to do it all. (III:148) Sometimes an ingredient is missing, and I want you to introduce some necessary changes, try out something new, add a new factor to your modus operandi… (IV:34) To prefer whatever is the easiest and most fun-promising option, and not necessarily always going by what would be the most needed, one can’t really expect to make any significant headway with that attitude and modus operandi. (IV:386) The obstacles that are there to overcome, just as in every good and perfect thing I put before you, are like an additional proof of authenticity, since it confirms My usual modus operandi, and it resembles the way I work in your life. (IV:400) Taking problems to Me and seeing and watching Me as I handle them and take care of them, is a different modus operandi, but it is not doing nothing! (IV:485) It’s expedient and necessary for you to get into the modus operandi of not doing things without Me, especially when you feel as though you’ve already got more than enough to handle. (11:17) It has been the natural modus operandi for people to walk through life with a “give me” attitude, and “What can I get,” instead of, “What can I give?” There’s a lot more in it for you in the long run if you take on a giving attitude. (11:146) It’s coming to that stretch and modus operandi: Without Me ye can do nothing. Get used to that relatively new and strange modus operandi! (16:177) It’s just the time to get used to that relatively new modus operandi of not working according to your own knowledge, but the one coming from Above… one without which you don’t stand much of a chance to make it through what’s coming. So, ain’t got no clue? Good news for you! – The chance for Us to show you what to do. (16:180) Human behavior is geared by what they’re used to. But I’m telling you that changes are coming which won’t enable you to continue in the same old modus operandi. - No more reliance on the flesh and own abilities! (16:191) You might not make it as things are going right now, but that means you’ve got to change your modus operandi: soak everything a lot more into prayer, and your consciousness into the fact of dependence on the Help and Power from Above! Say farewell to the ways of the flesh and managing things in your own futile physical strengths, and lean on what you really need: the Strength from Above! (17:6)

…Motivations & Incentives If your motive is to inspire others and to help them make it, and to give your own life for another’s and forsake your own interests, then anything is possible. But if you just want to show off how much better you think you can do, you might as well forget it. (I:360) It’s got to be love that motivates you; it’s got to be the heart. That’s where you’ve got to find your answers, your motivations, your direction, your driving force that spurs you on…. that knowledge deep inside the heart! (III:2) Most people aren't aware of their own hidden motives until they become mature enough to deal with things and are sincerely interested in finding out why things simply haven't worked out as they should have, thus far in their lives. (III:51) It's not so much what you do that matters, but why you do it, what motivations and incentives lie behind it. What's the spirit behind it? You've got My Spirit, so let that be the Spirit that's behind the things that you do! (III:61)

Those who are too busy worrying, "what's in it for me?" and wondering about the amount of glory they're going to get, usually never really accomplish the kind of things that count, as far as I'm concerned, simply because the wrong spirit is behind it... the wrong incentive. (III:63) Life is more important than accomplishment. It's more than that. The heart is what matters, the motivation; you've got to have the right incentives. Your motivation has got to be your love for them. (III:79) Good intentions simply are not enough. They've got to become more than intentions. They've got to become your incentive, that which motivates you, the essence of all you are and do: "The love of Christ constraineth us" (2Cor.5:14). (III:82)

It's so important to be honest with yourself and find out what really makes you tic, whether it's love or pride that's motivating you as your driving force in life. (III:90) Only when you can receive My personal Love for you, can My Love really spur you on and become your driving force and motivation. (III:104) Your motivation has got to be love for the people. (III:123) I'm putting a lot more emphasis on how you do things, in what spirit, and with which motivation and incentive, than the amount of things you accomplish. (III:135) If it's only fleeting motivations that drive you, like pleasure, temporary comfort or the fulfilling of your momentary needs and desires, then your relationship may be just as much subject to time and erosion. (III:285) You've got to keep the right goals in mind, and you've got to run this race for the right incentives, because if it's just pride that motivates and spurs you on, instead of love, then there's no chance in a lifetime you're going to be among the winners. Because pride and other false motivations will drain the energy and life-blood out of you. The only true incentive that will help you to keep going until the very end is love. And of course the devil will seek to replace that by any false incentive, if he can, and that's what you've got to be aware of. (III:354) You’ve got to make sure that that’s your motivation and the thing that rules you, your goal: love. (III:394) The sense of becoming a more efficient vessel for Me, living for the purpose of helping and saving others, instead of personal pursuits, is to replace wrong motivations with right ones. (III:429) Almost as important as what you do is the incentive and motivation out of which you do it, which also determines the way you do it. (III:434) You have to check your heart about what your true motivations are. Are you scared you’re going to miss out on the rewards if you don’t do more of this and more of that? Or is it truly love, and nothing but love that motivates you? Because it is only love, and nothing but love that will enable you. If what motivates you is fear of missing out on something in case you don’t obey Me, then you don’t have the right motivations it takes to win anybody to Me. Subconscious fears and underlying false motivations I want to liberate you from, in order to liberate others from them. (III:456)

Clean up your spiritual household a little bit and become more real in your motivations and the driving force that spurs you on through life! (III:473) Just as there are vehicles that run on gasoline and others run on Diesel or some kind of organic fuel, electricity, or what have you, so different people are motivated by different incentives. The majority of cars run on gasoline, and likewise, the majority of people run on the pressure of getting something accomplished within a certain timeframe. But there are those who are powered by different incentives and fuels than what gets the majority of people going. (III:499) What are your motivations and incentives for doing great works? You want to make a name for yourself, you want to be remembered, admired, etc. Whereas just being there for others means forgetting about yourself and just being there for them. (III:576) Love people in spite of their faults and look beyond their faults and flaws, at their hearts and that which truly motivates them, instead of the show they usually put on! (IV:27) My influence in someone’s life can purify their motivations and cleanse a relationship or marriage from any impure and selfish elements. (IV:108)

You cannot make their ambitions the same as yours, nor allow yourself to fall into their way of thinking, their way of seeing things, and start acting the same way and out of the same motivations. (IV:112) If what motivates man is the achievement of Satan’s promise, “Ye shall be as gods,” then his world will be affected by it. (IV:113)

Learning to interpret the vibes people give off properly is a challenge in life. Finding out what it really is that makes people tic, and not just falling for your own first best interpretation and wild guess what their intentions and motivations may be… (IV:124)

I don’t want you to go by false motivations, to be doing “some good” just in order to feel better about yourself. (IV:139) Keep letting My Light illuminate and examine the inside of your own heart, the true motivations of your actions, and make sure your own small little unit stays clean of any infiltrations of the enemy! (IV:158) The difference lies in the incentive: whether it’s the lusts that war in your members that motivate you, or a sincere and pure desire for love. (IV:312) My Love within you is the only right and effective motivation that can ever keep you from sinning… (IV:313) A man should take heed and watch what he sows, and to check the motivations of his heart as to whether they’re pure or not, and if mistakes have been made, to learn from them and make sure not to repeat them. (IV:386) Many people are motivated and dominated by envy and covetousness… I would like you to be different. (IV:516) Often it is only the fear of judgment or of things going wrong that will give people the incentive to seek change or improvement, without which there is stagnation. (11:4) Perhaps it’s time to learn a few things along the lines of how to motivate others, so that you might wind up becoming a little more motivated yourself! (11:51) You’ve come to realize how sheer aggravating the lack of motivation in some people can be, and their lack of willingness and readiness to be or become motivated, no matter what you may do to try to help them, or to persuade them that what you want to do for them is for their own good… The potential saviors of this world don’t have an easy job, and motivating others to join you in your efforts is probably the hardest task about it! “How to motivate people to do good” is a big question and a mighty challenge for many of My world-changers. (11:82) To be more concerned about others would definitely be a plus-point in learning to make love the greater force of influence and motivation throughout that life down there, even if it’s a little tough to do so when the majority of those around you don’t. (2016:57) Let times getting darker down there cause and motivate you to keep your vision Up Here, the Source of Light! (2016:68) If you haven’t learned all of those lessons yet I’ve been trying to teach you, well, see this as another reason and incentive for what you’re still having to go through down there! (2016:73) If you don’t know how to, or feel you can’t make it, see it as a motivation to apply for the Help from Above, which will be the only mode anyone will make it through the darkest days to come! (2016:74) If you’re feeling weak, let it be My incentive for you to draw close to Me! (2016:100) Let the good and loving things rule and reign your life, actions, attitudes and motivations! (2016:108) Put those feelings on the backburner and obedience to Me in the front of your motivation gear! (2016:112) What matters is not the quantity of your actions and activities, but the quality, and what you’re putting into and what motivates you. And you remember the main keyword for My motivation, and what it should be: Love! – Not anger, worry, fear or pride, or whatever else the enemy might try to tack you with. (2016:148) Let your communication with others be run and motivated by love, and don’t let any of the evil influences of the enemy sink in! (16:162) What people who want to follow Me and be a disciple of Mine should learn from My Life on Earth, along with those of My early disciples – except for Judas, who was obsessed and partly possessed by the devil, and thus, more interested in

money than in what I’ve had to say – is that making money is not what should rule their motivations, but doing good to the world around them. (2016:172) Can you blame Me for withholding the abundant blessings you’d been used to for so long, in order for you to appreciate them, learn what others have to go through, so that you develop a greater incentive to share what you’ve got with others? – Which is basically what’s supposedly your job? (2016:185) Worsening circumstances aren’t a sign for you to lower your vision or let your spiritual state be pulled down, but are supposed to be an incentive for you to learn to raise your vision and spiritual condition in spite of them! (2016:193) See not knowing how you’ll make it as a natural state and incentive to ask Me how you will, or help you to! (17:4) The world will reap what it’s sown, and if it’s largely selfishness that’s been motivating its folks, they’ll reap the results of it. (17:5)

Remember the “Action”-part as a motivational attempt to get into better situations! (17:25) A lot depends on your motivations… the extent to which I can bless you, and, accordingly, your joy and contentment. If the blessings are missing, don’t blame Me, but check your own actions and incentives for causing that lack! (17:36) There have been folks trying or pretending to blend in to My movements throughout history, but because of wrong motivations the Holy Spirit didn’t really work in or through them. That’s why it’s important to be sure of the right and proper motivation in My followership. (17:37) If you don’t know what’s going to happen, don’t let it tear you down, but use it as an incentive to pin your trust on Me and the Father, that We always know better in any case, so, it’s not a disadvantage if you don’t know, just a reason and incentive to ask Us about it. (17:70) If the conditions down there are getting tougher, it’s just all the more incentive to point your faith and confidence in the right direction. - Not letting it be influenced - and thus, weakened - by all that’s going on around you down there, but staying spiritually focused on your Goal and Destination. (17:98) See it as an incentive for you to raise your faith and make it grow: to overcome the fears the enemy would like to harm and weaken you with! (17:122) Get the point of not being drifted and motivated or even “inspired” by the physical circumstances and conditions around you, but make it My Kingdom of the Spirit that you seek first, and gear your mindset and focus toward the Spirit! (17:127) Gear your vision toward the physically invisible Realm of the Spirit, the currently better Part of Everything… a good reason and motivation to give It the priority of your attention! Visible, these days can almost entirely be associated with negative, while it’s the presently invisible Range of the Spirit from where comes the positive. A principal reason and motivation to keep your focus aimed toward the Spirit. (17:132) Sometimes you don’t feel too motivated to do anything, because of your frustration about your current circumstances, but don’t you think it’s a bit sad the enemy gets you into such a state? You shouldn’t let him, but instead, keep resisting him! (17:137)

…Movies School has just begun! You ain't nearly done yet, so, don't let the old punk fool you, like the fox and the cat in "Pinocchio" were telling him not to go to school... Don't be naïve and don't fall for his lies! I've had to rescue you out of many a cage and entrapment, and out of the belly of the whale, and now out there on the winds and waves of the open sea of life you're going to have to prove if you're noble enough to lay down your life for your brethren in order for My fairy - the Holy Ghost - to make you into a "real boy"! (I:315) Once you apply and give love yourself, you also become more attractive to those you want to love you. A perfect example of this is “Groundhog Day”: as long as he had any selfish motives, he failed in trying to conquer her heart. Only when he finally was completely broken and had become a truly loving man, was he able to conquer her heart with genuine love, and it broke the spell. (I:333)

Remember what infuriated Nero in "Peter and Paul" the most? That some were saying that Paul was the most important man in the world. Not the great ruler of the Roman Empire, but a little Jewish preacher from the edge of the world... It's still the same: not the big rock stars or movie stars or pompous politicians are really the important people, but My little pivots, on which the axis and the wheels of history are really turning. (I:494) You may think you're having hard times, but you may look back at these times with different eyes someday, as has happened so often in your life. Retrospectively, things never look as bad as they might look at the moment you're going through them. It's like in “Whinnie the Pooh”, where the terrible mountain turned out not to have been much more than a molehill, and the dreadful forest just a few bushes... That's how you'll look back at your life, too! (II:47) To categorically dismiss people as hopeless cases, to put them in drawers, that's the same kind of churchy and selfrighteous attitude that Jonah was portrayed as having in the movie "Veggie Tales - The Story Of Jonah," but you shouldn't allow that to happen to you! Give them a chance! And give Me a chance to change their lives. (II:77) Like the evil old man, Mr. Potter, in "It's A Wonderful Life," who unbeknownst to the hero of the story found his money and kept it, and thus caused many problems and trials... that's the way the devil works, too. He sees an opportunity to work his evil plan, to exploit others in order to spread out his power and convert innocent villages, homes and entire countries into one big "Pottersville." Just like Potter stole the money in the movie, the devil sees where you're forgetting about the important detail of applying your spiritual wealth and riches of showing love and appreciation, and he holds on to it, makes it impossible for you to show any more. (II:164) You must expose the devil's workings! You have to expose the evil "Mr. Potter" at work here and show him up for what he really is! He uses innocent little blunders of the mind, little neglects and shortcomings that everybody is prone to, and creates a huge crisis out of them that makes you feel and think that nobody loves you and you're just a useless failure and the best thing would be that you had never been born, etc., ready to jump off the bridge. Thankfully, I've got My "Clarences," My angels, jumping into the situation to set things straight, to help you out, and to straighten out your misguided view and perception of things. That movie is really a blueprint for what's happening in many people's lives, of how the devil manages to discourage and belittle them in their own eyes... (II:166) The devil is very much like the evil fox in "Pinocchio" who diverts Pinocchio from his duties and tries to attract him to "the easier" way to make money, instead of going the hard way of attending school (--the School of Life!--), which is what his father Gepetto told him to do, and lures him with the pleasures on "pleasure island." But Pinocchio only winds up making a jack-ass out of himself, along with all the others, by failing to remember to stay on the straight and narrow, until he finally repents, wants to go home to the father and in not finding him at home, becomes obsessed with the search for the father... what an allegory of life! Sometimes you may not find the Father where you had originally been familiar with Him, once you've neglected to remember Him and to honor Him and to listen to Him, and once you've been down the road of sin. Your search for Him may lead you into the belly of the whale, which are the deep, dark and trying experiences I often use to make a real man out of you, to show whether you've really got a heart after all. Often people are distracted and diverted by the enemy, purposely lured away from Me and My admonitions and tempted to forget and disobey what I told them or what they simply know to be the good way. After all, everybody else is rushing off to "Pleasure Island," and who wants to be left out and miss out on the fun, right? But if you're going to be a smart little boy, you're going to remember what Father said. You're going to pay attention to Him and send the evil tempters back to hell where they came from. You're not going to listen to them but you'll tell them to get lost, that you won't listen to them, you've got to obey the Father, and there's nothing they can ever do or say that will divert you from that path of obedience! (II:236) Make each of your actions, words, conversations, gestures, one that will make a difference in the meaningless, lifeless, clueless Matrix of this world! If you want to be Neo, you can't keep walking around pretending you're Mr. Anderson! (II:271) Everybody has their perfect role and part to play, and it’s one of the biggest tasks of the director or producers of a play, movie or TV series, to find the perfect cast. I chose each player, each actor for their perfect role, including yours. In order to make sure you play your part the best you can, live! Enjoy it! Don't take it too seriously, but don't neglect to take it serious enough, either! You don't have to have a clue about everything that's going on. You just have to play your part the best you know how. As far as you're concerned, there's only one role and one part that matters most, and that's the one I've given you to play. Concentrate and focus on it with your whole heart! Meditate on it so you will get the supernatural anointing for it, assistance from the Spirit World! Don't let less than ideal "set conditions" distract you! The play is multi-dimensional, taking place on all and various levels and platforms at the same time! Although the devil is in some ways participating in the play, he's mainly in the coaching business, since he's still operating from the spirit world. He's sort of in charge of the cast who are playing the villains' parts. But he also has his people who will try to make things not so easy for you to play your part. He tries to make his people look better than Mine and do a better job. He's trying to steal the show from Me since the beginning. We're in serious competition. At least for him it's serious, that is...

And since he seems to have a larger "fan crowd" than I do at times, one could be tempted to think that he might actually stand a chance to become the "real" star of the show... Well, we'll see. Usually, once people get a look behind the scenes, and they start getting a bit more of an idea of the whole thing and find out what's really good and what isn't, what's real quality performance and what isn't, they usually come over to My side, after all. Often the time in the enemy camp only helps them to appreciate working for Me, since working for Me may have its disadvantages, but they're nothing compared to working for a dud like the devil. So, enjoy acting out the part of your life, even with all the little, seemingly insignificant side-scenes and side roles you're having to play! It doesn't really matter if you don't seem to have huge success and a gigantic fan crowd right now; that it doesn't seem to make sense what you're doing or you're not sure whether it's going to do anyone any good ever. It doesn't matter if it seems that way, because I'm telling you, it will. Those who are willing to play those seemingly dumb little roles are the greatest stars Up Here. They may seem a little boring to those action freaks, but we're preparing for some real sophisticated action here, not just some cheap, "made in China" type of action... We're working on a Show that might not attract the fast-food entertainment consumers, but one that will endure the tests of time. You were wondering about your role you're having to play right now. Well, I just want to encourage you that I and many great men of faith have been in the same boat. If you look at My life on Earth, you should be encouraged: it wasn't anything to be envious of. Then there was St. Francis, and many of My apostles... None of them died of old age as rich millionaires in their fancy villa somewhere... So, if you're tempted to think your part's too rough, cheer up, you ain't seen nuthin' yet when it comes to "rough!" Be glad that I'm not letting you get you away with the easy part you might actually prefer to have. Now that would be boring! The "somebodies" in this world, who are just inheriting the fake blessings of the devil, appear and fade into nothing as soon as the show is over. They turn out to have been nothing but a fake! They lose their value and shining appearances as soon as the curtain falls: "Game over," "The End," and "welcome to the Real World," the Spirit World! They're all going to find out that they have been fools, fooled by the greatest fool of all, the great imposter. So, act out and play your part with the dignity of one who knows that he's the heir of the heritage that lasts, the poverty that will turn into everlasting riches when this game, this show of life on Earth is over! (II:380) One of the best portrayals of the devil ever is the coward Scar in ‘The Lion King,’ who usurps the true king’s kingdom, has him killed, and the true king’s son needs to wander off into the wilderness. (II:638) A lot depends on your determination to believe that somehow, like in "Shakespeare in Love," everything is going to turn out well in the end, even though you don't know how - it's a mystery. The cast may be a hopeless bunch of losers - or they may look like it, and your Juliet may still not have arrived on the scene yet, and you may think you're lost, from the looks of the circumstances, but everything depends on your faith to believe that somehow things are going to turn out alright anyway. - Because I'm in control. It may not look like it, but you'll know - your faith will be strong enough to tell - that I am, anyway, and that I'm just allowing the chaotic looks of things in order to test you, to make sure that you've really got what it takes that will deserve and merit the reward. (III:205) "Ratatouille" was a nice example of an animal that was interested in the other kind, ready to learn from them, even though there were lots of hurdles and prejudices to overcome on both sides... That rat was actually able to pass on some of its skills to humans, too. We in the Spirit World learn a lot from the things you're going through in the physical. We benefit from the tastes you're developing, the savors and flavors you come up with, and it's something that works both ways... I need each and every one of you to contribute your special and individual part to My "potpourri" or "ratatouille," as it's called in French. I appreciate any help I can get from you in getting them to see beyond their physical needs, to help them to catch a glimpse of the heavenly flavors that are yet to be savored and discovered, whole new dimensions of enjoyment, similar to the way the rat in the movie taught his brothers about the varieties of food... (III:266) The devil would like to create tons of little carbon copies of himself, very much like "Mr. Smith" in the 3 rd issue of "Matrix." Satan is a lot like "Mr. Smith," in that he detests mankind, and if anything, wants to absorb and assimilate them into his system, and convert them into his obedient slaves, totally yielded to him, without any will of their own. (III:309) The Real Thing, namely reality, is far more complex than a little two hour Hollywood episode could ever manage to tell. Those movies may be inspiring, and they may spur you on to continue in your struggle and fight, but you can’t expect that same kind of success story from your own life after two hours! (III:419) Show folks that a love relationship with Me beats any Hollywood episode! Show them what love is really all about! Those romantic love films are nice, but they’re not the Real Thing that they could have with Me! (III:420) When Pinocchio took off with the show-people, he thought he was free, he wouldn’t have to attend that stupid, boring School of Life anymore, and he was going to have some fun instead, becoming rich and famous. In the end he only wound up making a jackass out of himself like so many others. The illusion of freedom only led him to ever greater bondage. Even so it is with the game of this world. The enemy is the cunning fox that lures them time and time again into their cages with his appealing fake version of freedom and fun, every time losing a bit more of their innocence and humanity. (III:480)

Life is like a great, interactive motion picture, and I allow My actors to change the script somewhat as they go, just like some highly respected and well-known actors are able to build in their little spontaneous changes into the script. My prophets and “stars” have the power to change My mind on certain issues, they just have to have the faith and the courage to try it – and, of course, a good alternative plan. (III:539) One reason why people are excessively into movies: They know that usually there will be a good guy, or a couple of good guys playing the leading roles who will make life look good for an hour or two; people whose flaws won’t be shown, at least not to the extent that they are in real life. You never see them go to the toilet or the way they really look when they first wake up in the morning, and it gives people a better “reality” to distract them. (IV:67) Every individual is a little bit like Pinocchio and would do better to heed the advice of their conscience than the temptations of the foxes in this world who promise high life on Pleasure Island… (IV:147) Those movies where some hero overcomes legions of evil on his own create the unrealistic notion that you just might win against all odds by yourself, but that’s not quite correct. (IV:191) If you remember “Mr. Holland’s Opus,” his destiny turned out to be something quite different than his personal dreams and preferences, but then again, who’s to say where the greater rewards and fulfillment were to be found? “But what about those talents?” you wonder. Well, just as in “Mr. Holland,” they were also put to some good use, even if in a different way than he would have personally envisioned or planned…” His opus was performed and came to the fore in the end, but in such a way that the glory did not go to him, but to the higher force that did the hidden planning for his life; in other words, it glorified God, rather than giving the glory to himself. (11:35) School isn’t a constant playground, and it’s understandable that some, if not most kids, would prefer playing video games all day long instead, or spend their days in leisure on “Pleasure Island (“Pinocchio”).” But the question is, which is going to be more beneficial for you in the long run? Having “Pleasure Island” turn you into a cigar-smoking jack-ass, or actually getting to know something and becoming smarter and wiser? (11:57)

…Mysteries & Secrets Be faithful to commune with Me, and I will let you delve deep into the mysteries! (I:2) You wonder how I could possibly have arranged all these dreadful and awful situations to work out for best. All this ugliness doesn't look too much like it's been arranged and conceived in Heaven. Well, but when a baby is first conceived it may not always be a pretty sight in its embryonic state. And even a newborn isn't all that pretty. It takes time until you recognize the beauty in it. (II:42) You won't be able to solve the whole mystery of My workings in this life, but I'm giving you a glimpse. There's so much more going on behind the scenes that concerns you than you could ever even possibly find out in life. It will be one of the greatest and very special kicks for you in Heaven to solve the final mysteries and see My perfect sense in it all! Right now you can only see it by faith, but that faith is growing. In other words, your ability to see the hidden mysteries of the spirit is slowly growing, and day by day there is more and more to discover. (II:181) Many things written in the Bible aren't clearly understood by everyone or even anyone, they're to be revealed in their time. I like to keep some things a mystery until the time has come to make it all clear. (II:196) I love to answer your questions. But I don't always like to hand you the answer on a silver platter and tell you the whole score in advance. I like to keep some things a mystery, at least for a while and long enough to give you time to make an effort to use your brain to find out what you can about it. (II:199) The great secret lies in loving Me. That's all I require of you. The rest will come - not by itself, but by Me. I will do everything and anything through you, if you just allow Me, by loving Me. (II:276) Some mysteries are supposed to be revealed and unfolded step by step, because you might not be able to handle them otherwise. (II:310)

I work in mysterious ways, and I'm letting you have a glimpse of My mystery of the future, so that you won't be discouraged and tempted to give up. (II:316) There will remain mysteries, riddles and questions in life, things that you must take by faith, sometimes because they're part of your tests. (II:441) I never run out of mysteries to reveal to you. (II:463) In Me you will always find a Source of never ending depths, untold mysteries to discover, and a whole universe of revelations to explore. (II:644) Only those who can see through the great mystery until its very end can believe in unconditional and vast, all-forgiving and all-embracing Love. It goes totally against the grain of the pride of man, any philosophy of works, of being able to earn one's own salvation, because it becomes obvious that only I can do it. (III:68) Part of making "everyday better" is to shift your focus from yourself to what you can do in order to improve life for someone else. That's what truly will make everyday better, and a major part of the secret of how it works. The secret lies in letting the light you receive from Me by coming to Me spill over on others' lives... (III:78) Love is the Secret, the all-powerful Force that rules and guides the universe, for Love is God. (III:83) Discover new facets, new aspects, new details and angles, factors and clues to new secrets, mysteries and revelations; things you weren't aware of before! (III:129) It takes time to get to know someone, even yourself, and if you won't take time to reflect and think about certain qualities and ways you react or why you do so, they can remain a mystery forever, until you come Home to Me and your angels and spirit helpers fill you in on what you were so busy missing out on. Most people prefer these things to remain a mystery, since some of them aren't exactly flattering. (III:175) That’s the trickiness and mystery of life: Things are not always what they seem to be. (III:187) The mystery of emptiness is the greatest gift that enables you to receive any of the other ones... it is the faith that makes all else possible. (III:200) Your trust will inspire that of others. You don't know how, but you know it's all going to end well. "But how?" "I don't know - it's a mystery!" Make some room for My mystery to happen! Have the faith and trust to let it happen! Expect it to happen, and never give up hoping that - against all the odds - it's going to happen! (III:205) The children of men usually can't sit still long enough, they're not patient enough; they've got to be up and running someplace and doing something, when instead they could be learning of Me the mysteries of the universe. (III:240) Thank Me for what you have received already, and I will gladly pour out more! That's the secret to obtaining more. (III:251) It's the equilibrium of all things and a just measure of all the ingredients that make up the secret of life. (III:262) Your openness toward Me, your willingness to turn to Me and embrace Me and let Me take over, that's what draws you into My Realm of the eternal, the heavenly view and timescope of things, the mystery of the Now, the present, the eternal moment of God... (III:292) You can tell people all that expects them behind those doors of mystery, but they have to turn the key of faith in that truth themselves. (III:296) One of the mysteries of creation: the dual nature of things. (III:311) That's what life is all about: discovering God's mystery in life. If you only focus on the obvious, you're never going to get it. (III:342)

The secret still lies in the whispers, that still small voice that the majority of the world doesn’t pay attention to. That’s one of the great secrets: the stillness, the acceptance of yielding to the hand of God in your life, even if it brings times of trouble and sorrow; to just let it be. (III:432) You’ve got to allow the mystery to happen along with the suffering, along with all the stuff that perhaps you wouldn’t have allowed or built in there, had you been the architect, but that’s precisely where faith and trust come in and run circles around pride, and all the carnal mind will ever rig up in its own efforts. (IV:33) Sometimes the secret is to be able to wait for the right moment, and not run off before you’re ready. (IV:34)

Life has many riddles and mysteries that man hasn’t even begun to solve yet. They’re all trying to make sense of things in their own strength, with their own wits and efforts to put 2 and 2 together and make sense of it all without consulting or even considering Me. They’re leaving the major Factor out of the equation. (IV:54) A lot of the secret and mystery of life and making the most out of it, is finding the new in the old: find the new application of some of the same old basic and fundamental truths, and see which ones are applicable today! (IV:217) One of the greatest mysteries in life for some lies in the moment of the discovery of the necessity of paying attention, instead of wanting to get it. (IV:282) The secret to happiness is not in finding the perfect, but making the best out of what you have. (IV:344) Some things remain a mystery for a little while in order to teach you to trust… (IV:414) The great secret to enjoying every moment as much as possible lies in your union and connection with Me. (IV:479) A big part of the secret on your quest for the Real Thing is becoming it. (IV:498) This is one of the mysteries of humanity: perfection is only acquired via the path of imperfection. (11:66) Life has a lot of mysteries. But seeking Me about them will help you solve them. (15:161) Some issues won’t be fully revealed until you get Here, where the questions will be answered and the mysteries of life and that world of yours solved. (16:13) Sorry it’s a tough road leading to Heaven, but I never made a secret of that fact. (16:63) Cling to and stick to Me, and keep geared to My heavenly wavelength! That’s the secret of making it through what’s coming. (17:55) Relying and depending on what you can’t see around you is the mystery and secret weapon of faith, and it’s the one weapon and instrument to learn to put your trust and confidence in. (17:90) Life can be a misery, but how to prevent that, shouldn’t be too much of a mystery, if you have been taught before about the miraculous, positive effects of prayer. (17:96) There are still quite some mysteries and secrets that you don’t know the answers to, which is why it’s good and a big advantage to be and stay connected to Me, Who can reveal to you whatever you need to know. Sometimes the mystery of walking by faith when you’re not sure of the details, is something that should strengthen your trust in Me, that even when you don’t know, you keep trusting that I, the One Who should, does. (17:146)

To become doers of the Word I’m giving you is the secret. (17:148)

…Names Sometimes big secrets of the universe lie in such seemingly insignificant things as the name of a flower: Forget Me not! Don’t forget Me! Don’t forget to give Me the glory! In your remembering Me every step of the way lies the course, the quality and the effectiveness of your voyage through life. I really AM, I really do exist. I told Moses that’s My name because it is the answer to the most essential question: 'God, are you really there?’ I AM!!! I’m not often quite easily perceived and recognized, nor accepted as the God of Love that I am. But I AM. Keep on overcoming by praising Me, trusting Me and loving Me in spite of anything, and I will give you that white stone, and in it a name written that no one else will know but you - and Me! A name that will be your special code of direct link-up and instant utter communication and oneness with Me, your personal access code to My heart. I cannot grant access and

entrance to the Holy of holies and inner core of My heart only to those who will approve themselves in this life as true overcomers. The ship's going down, and yet the band plays on and the captain and his crew are saying, "Don't panic, everything's under control...." when really everything's out of control, because they're trying to grab the control more and more away from Me, practically want to eradicate Me from people's minds, lives and consciences and give it over to the one they will receive, who will come in his own name, unlike Me, Who came in His Father's name and they did not receive. My name means "Savior." My cry and My call to mankind is to "Come, let Me save you!" I want to save you wholly and entire, I want to cleanse and heal all of you, your mind, your body, your heart, your spirit... your soul. Act in the Power and in the Name of the Author, the Founder, the Ruler over all, in His indisputable Authority over everything else, any circumstances and forces that would dare to stand in the way of My will! The Devil is like some ferocious dog that barks and growls and acts up as if he were the boss, but just one word spoken in My name and authority will shut him up and remind him of who's the Boss around here. Look beyond, at the ultimate purpose of all, not the immediate thing. Just as in magic the name of the thing controls it or makes it "happen," even so ignoring the thing, and instead focusing on the Maker, the Author of everything, will enable you to perform the greatest magic of all: My magic of faith, the magic of "nothing is impossible."

…Necessities (/Needs) Giving people an opportunity to be blessed and feel needed makes them feel good about themselves, and that's because they instinctively know that that's the way things are supposed to be, they're fulfilling their true destiny by giving to someone, they're complying with and fulfilling a part of the meaning of their lives and purpose of their existence. It's not just another selfish need... it's totally okay to need to be needed. (II:94) Whenever there's a need, do what you can in order to fill it! (II:618)) Maybe I will allow the enemy to drive you just a little bit beyond your limit. But next time, you'll be able to handle more. And it's necessary, because things are going to get worse, and you need to get to know your limits, your weak points, and you need to be aware of them, able to recognize them and be cautious of them. (III:74) It’s never wrong to give, but it depends on what it is you give. It's never wrong to give the right thing, that which I show you a person needs. (III:75) Love sees the need and does something about it. (III:83) I want you to turn to a reliable Source for your needs, namely to Me. (III:96) Whether it's your need to be needed or your need to succeed, your need to avoid pain, your need for security... etc. It's all so hard to let go for the sake of the things I need you to do. (III:110) Stand up and fight for your most essential need of all! There is nothing that could be anywhere near as important as My time with you, My communications with you, My position in your life. (III:112) The greater the need for Me, the more swiftly I'll be there, and with greater force will I rush in and fill the need. I need you to need Me, because without folks who need Me, I'm never going to get the job done. (III:356) Short-sighted people figure that if they take care of their own needs first, then they'll be happy. But if you take care of what needs to be done before the thing you'd personally prefer to do, you might find out that this actually would contribute more to your happiness than that me-first attitude. (III:413) The crises in your life are necessary for you to learn the ultimate lesson, which is to have Me in the first place in your life, your primary target of focus. (III:469)

Strive to be one of My heroes, who tune in to the right voice, instead of the voices of greed and selfishness and ego, and do what is necessary not only for their own good, but for that of the world, My Kingdom, and for many others! (III:475) Consider by which you’re doing mankind a greater service: by catering to what they want, or giving them what they truly need, even if they may not be aware of it! (III:476) Sometimes you have to judge a situation by the need and the vacuum there is. (III:518) Unfortunately, sometimes, in the effort of setting out on the enterprise to give love to others, the immediate and apparently more pressing needs of obtaining what one needs to survive take over the good intentions, and occupy much more time and space than the actual giving of love… The surrounding machinery becomes much bigger than its core and original purpose, often to such an extent that it can hardly be found anymore. (III:532) The only way out is the way through it! You’re going to have to experience it, go through it, and carry your cross, which is that situation and challenge you find yourself in at any given moment. You may ask, like I did, “If it be possible, let this cup be removed from me,” but just as in My case, you’ll find that it’s necessary to drink that cup! (III:557) It takes a sharp, close and intricate analysis of people to figure out and determine what it is they really need, and one cannot be scared of the truth and some not-so-pretty details. (III:565) One of the greatest tragedies in human life is the illusion that there’s no need for Me in their lives, and there are no lives as pitiful as those of the self-satisfied who live in the delusion of having no need for Me. That’s what the enemy is trying to construct with all of his distractions and temptations: the illusion that you don’t need Me. He’s constantly saying, “Who needs Him, anyway?” Well, that’s precisely the road mankind is taking, a road that will prove whether you, mankind per se, need Me, after all, or not. The enemy won’t stop trying to get you to replace your need for Me with the need for something else, some substitute he’s trying to get you dependent on and addicted to, whatever you will allow him to use to crowd Me out of your life. It’s usually only when you have nothing left to turn to but Me, that you find the full strength of your relationship with Me again. What I need is you. It’s just rigged up that way, that I need you and you need Me. It’s the way things are supposed to be. One of the main factors that causes things not to be the way they’re supposed to be, is that people aren’t aware of the fact that they need Me, and that I need them. Thus they prevent things from becoming the way they’re supposed to be. The heavenly life is a life where that fact and that law of the supernatural is clear and granted: that I need you, all My brides and followers, and you need Me. The quicker you learn that you need Me, and the more you remain in that consciousness of your need for Me, the better off you’re going to be, and the more stable and stronger in the spirit; not only experiencing that emptiness, that vacuum that draws on Me and calls for Me and recognizes your need for Me when you’re poor, lean, cold and wanting, but also when you don’t lack anything in the physical. - Not fooled by “success,” but even realizing in your strong moments that you need Me just the same as during your weak ones. (III:587) I’ve got to become all you need to the extent that you won’t turn your expectations to others anymore, so that all you will want to do with respect to them is give, and not take. When it comes to your fellowmen, I need you to assume a position of a giver, not a taker. I’ve got to get you to realize that they haven’t got anything to give of what you actually need, but that I alone am the sole Filler of those needs. I’ve got to become the Filler of your need for companionship, for love, for comfort, relief, and everything else, and even if I supply it by means of others, you’ve got to give Me the honor and credit for it. (III:588) Others don’t always seem to be exactly appreciative of your efforts to bring them the message that could save them, but I’m trying to get you to shift your vision from what you can immediately see, the way people apparently are on the surface, to that which is below the surface, and their true need. (IV:27) Sometimes an ingredient is missing, and I want you to introduce some necessary changes, try out something new, add a new factor to your modus operandi… (IV:34) Sometimes necessity creates whole new worlds of energy and resources you previously wouldn’t have seen… (IV:40) Time will usually tell and reveal that that which I have taken away was necessary, in order to make room to bring in new and better fruit. (IV:41) What I expect from you aren’t any high and lofty achievements and accomplishments, but just little humble but necessary acts. (IV:48) My Light, My Love, My Power is all that is necessary to hold you up. (IV:54)

Come back to the ground of the gist of life, and just living on the bare necessities that usually bring you a lot closer to real happiness than the notion that you’ve got to stuff yourself – physically and spiritually – with anything that comes your way! Leave the responsibility up to Me to truly satisfy your needs, instead of trying so hard to provide those things for yourself! (IV:63)

You can count on Me as a steady Source of whatever it is you need for life. Not only do I give you all you need, but I also know exactly how much of whatever it is you need at a certain time. When it comes to your needs, I’m the Specialist. I know what you really need, even if it may be a time of going without some particular blessing, and a time of leanness. Sometimes there is a need for emptiness, a time of scarcity, similar to how a fast can be good for you physical health. So, stay in tune with Me in order to find out what your real and actual needs are, according to My insight and foresight, and not just according to your temporary moods and cravings! (IV:116) As long as you’re not ware of your need, you’re not ready for anything, not even the basics, not even salvation. The only way you can ever receive what matters is by perceiving your need for it and wanting it. As long as you think you can already do it, what need is there for you to learn anything – according to your perception? (IV:118)

I have a special love for those who really and desperately need Me. (IV:136) I need and want you, and I need you to pay attention more wholeheartedly and dedicate even more of your time and efforts to My Cause, and less to the System, because you can’t win the battle half-heartedly. (IV:138) The world isn’t in need of more good words as much as it is in need of good samples. (IV:166) Prayer will help you get the necessary spiritual help to put feet to those prayers and perform the action that comes so hard to do in the flesh. Prayer is what will bring in all the necessary resources, the supernatural aid… It’s the wires and tubes that will bring the necessary energy and power to your apparatus and get it going. It’s the act of sending up the request that will pump down the necessary Power for you to do all that you can do. If you find yourself without the necessary power or energy to do something, then you must not yet have been praying for it! (IV:170)

I cannot save you from a necessary experience that you need to grow and to make progress. (IV:172) You can do whatever you can in the flesh and in the physical, but if you don’t see to it that it will get the necessary boost and umph from the Spirit World, your efforts might be rendered nearly futile, or at least not nearly as effective as otherwise they might have been. (IV:191) See adversity and loss as necessary training: I’m training you not to cling to things any more than necessary. (IV:196) Numbers may be good and necessary for some, but for others it can constitute a distraction from the things I really want them to do and pursue. (IV:200) It is necessary for Me not to provide you with a constantly steady flow, that sort of comes automatically, no matter what you do, but requires a constant monitoring on your behalf of your connection with Me. (IV:210) Focus on the things you really need! Don’t focus on the need as much as on Me, the Filler! (IV:217) I’m your Savior, there to rescue you out of this mess. If there were no mess, there wouldn’t be a need for a Savior, right? So, the mess is there for a purpose: to remind you that you need Me. (IV:238) One of the great paradoxes of evil: it leads to the conclusion of the necessity of good. (IV:249) Sometimes what’s necessary in order to restore happiness and appreciation of your previous or current situation is a new situation that isn’t quite as easy. (IV:253) Sometimes, when people are not willing to make certain sacrifices for Me, I cause them to have to make those sacrifices for other things, such as their own survival, and all of a sudden it doesn’t become a sacrifice anymore, but a necessity. That’s what Paul recognized from the beginning: “Necessity is laid unto me to preach the Gospel.” There was no other job for him. That was his, and he figured, woe was him if he didn’t do it. (IV:254) I love all My brides regardless of handicaps, and will bestow all the care necessary on them, providing that’s what they want; and the one sure sign for Me to know that you do want Me and My input is when you come to Me and ask Me for it. You can always count on My availability to quench and fill your need. (IV:281)

One of the greatest mysteries in life for some lies in the moment of the discovery of the necessity of paying attention, instead of wanting to get it. (IV:282) The more you allow Me to take care of your needs, the more you rely on Me and let Me fill that position of No.1 in your life, the better off you’re going to be. (IV:332) You need Me. In fact, nothing’s ever going to change about that fact, since you will always need Me. It’s just that right now, you and all of mankind need Me more badly than ever, and yet at the same time, only a comparatively tiny handful of folks are aware of that fact. (IV:346) I am the Source and Fuel that will keep the fire in you kindled that will give you the necessary strength to fulfill all the criteria and make all necessary preparations, to really make your dream a reality. I am the necessary Factor in your life that will give you the stability that others will seek in you and that they will need also. I’m the only Food that is guaranteed to help you make it through your day, that provides all the necessary substance and nourishment you need in order to make it and stay healthy. (IV:381) The Power of Love is truly all you need, all the power that is necessary to live a happy, truly fulfilled life. (IV:384) Part of the School of Life entails those physical necessities of learning to care for the things I have entrusted to you. (IV:396) The fact how long it took even My attentive students to figure out the fundamental truth about the importance of focusing on the heart of a person they’re facing, instead of all the other ado that makes up the outward appearance , status, title, rank or position in the world, shows how badly needed and neglected It is, and how little folks really know about the most important Factor of the universe: Love. (IV:433) Sometimes it is necessary to become aware of one’s own limitations in order to bust those very limitations, find out what size of a miracle you need and then ask for it and come up with the necessary faith to make it happen. (IV:438) It’s not a coincidence that you need some of things so desperately, but they’re to illustrate just how desperately you need Me. You’re finding out that you won’t get very far spiritually without Me, Whom all the necessities of life represent. (IV:478) I need those who do have something more to give to their fellowmen and to the world than what the average person has got to offer. (IV:518) I know just what you need, even if it should be opposed to what you want or might prefer. (IV:522) You’re going to have to get the necessary Strength for what’s before you from Me. The need to be needed is part of love, and I want you to know how much you need Me, how desperately you need to cling to Me. (11:12) Maybe there’s more to the truth of forsaking all and why that is necessary to be My disciple than meets the eye… (11:15) It’s expedient and necessary for you to get into the modus operandi of not doing things without Me, especially when you feel as though you’ve already got more than enough to handle. (11:17) If you feel incapable, trust that I will give you the necessary strength! (11:39) Most people think that all the things they do are necessary and expedient, that they couldn’t survive without them. But basically, this is the one thing that’s really necessary: hearing from Me! Remember this: One thing is needful in order for you to survive, and it’s not all those things your flesh, your carnal reasoning, your rational mind or the world are telling you to do! (11:49) You’ve got to see the need first in order to be really inspired to do something about it: a problem in order to look for a solution. (11:72) World changers are people who at some point in their lives realized that some things desperately needed to be changed, and so they got up and did something about it. (11:82) I need you to make an effort to tune into Me, because I need people like you to be My reflectors. (11:87) Necessary changes are more likely to be brought about by hard times than the easy ones. (11:92) Becoming aware of a need is the first step toward improvement. The best thing that can happen is your realization of the need, which will help and cause you to focus on potential solutions, changes of behavior and attitude; things you must do

or could do in order to improve the situation, since there’s not much sense in pinning all the blame on someone else… (11:93)

Whether what I promise you will come true or not also does partly depend on whether you have the faith to believe it and do what is necessary in order to make it happen. (11:96) That’s what love and grace are all about: Bestowing upon others what they don’t deserve, but all the more desperately need. (11:108) Folks are happier and more content who thought less about themselves than about what needed to be done… (11:117) If you’re going through tough times right now, see them as necessary preparation for the toughest ever to come! Do your best to get used to those times of trouble! Maybe it’s not what you’d like, but trust Me that it’s necessary to get used to them, since the roughest ever are to come! (15:234) When you have certain needs and necessities, and can’t make it without having them met, then you’ve just got to handle them and the fact that you’re not as much of an easy-going saint as you’d like to, and manage to bear your necessities. (16:10)

Having to raise and deal with spoiled kids drives home the point of the necessity of discipline, without which life can be pretty rough and tough for parents… Finding out how wicked the world is becoming should remind you of the necessity of prayer and asking for Help from Above to make it… (16:19) You won’t be able to make it through the coming dark times on your own, without the necessary Help from Up Here. Lean on the greater Strength, along with all the necessary wisdom and other gifts of the Spirit! (16:20) What is necessary is necessary, and sometimes the dark times cannot be avoided, through the choices the majority of people make. (16:37) Need Me? Good to realize it! Pouring out what you receive from Me is your principal task, so keep making the effort of asking for and receiving the necessary Strength and Power from Above in order to do it! To rely on the Help and Strength from Above will be absolutely necessary to make it through the times to come. (16:38) The ability to resist negative conditions and circumstances and see the positive in spite of them may be comparatively rare, but something necessary, if you want to be successful in inspiring others to accept your faith… Positiveness is simply necessary in order not to let the negative outlook overrule everything. (16:49) To make it through what’s to come simply takes some necessary preparation. (16:50) Getting modern technology into a state where it has become possible for folks to do things they hadn’t been able to for the previous millennia of world history makes it quite a lot harder to depend on faith in the Powers and Forces from Above, since technology has pretty much replaced the visible need for Help from Above; but with times a-changing and the world heading for the roughest state of its history, you’ll see that dependence on the Help and Power from Up Here will become necessary again for My true followers and believers… (16:52) Spiritual Help is what’s going to be more required and necessary than physical aid, since it’s going to be the forces of evil taking over the planet. (16:53) Change for the better is one of the most necessary things to learn to invest the time of your life in. (16:54) With the state of darkness growing bigger and bigger, you’re beginning to realize the need of looking Up to Me. If life down there would be perfect, would there be any need for Up Here? But realizing it’s far from it, you also become more aware of that need. In order not to get tripped off on the bad, some experience seems necessary to prevent it. Stay on the positive side with some positive action! It may be tough for you to come up with the necessary energy for it, but that’s one thing you should definitely ask and pray for! (16:58) The rough times make you stronger through availing yourself of the Help and support from Up Here, which, during the good and easy times you don’t feel you need that much. But learning to need them is the best preparation for times to come! (16:61) You won’t make it through what’s coming without Our supernatural Help from Above, and a bit more prayer to get it is necessary.

When it turns into a miracle to survive, it’s best to turn to the power of prayer, all the Help from Above you can get, and not lean on and confide in what you’ve been able to do yourselves, because that’s what’s going to be necessary. Miracle Power will be necessary to get you all through what’s coming! – Miracle Power! – Not your own! So, get used to the necessity of miracles in order to survive and make it through the darkest times to come! (16:63) The life of sin will help to teach mankind the necessary lessons about it… what not to do and do instead. (16:65) Keeping your spiritual focus and vision geared toward your true Home should give you hope and the necessary strength and power to make it through what’s around you down there, and the worse part yet coming. (16:67) A process to make you stronger and get used to tougher times coming up is necessary for you to have a chance to make it. (16:69)

Learning how not to behave is unfortunately a lesson many will only learn from the way others behave toward them. All it can teach you is the necessity to improve your own act, and if you can’t learn well from your own mistakes and faults, maybe having to go through those of others around you will eventually wind up teaching you some of it! (16:71) Needing My Help pretty much for each day you’re passing through is not a bad sign, just a preparation for the toughest times of history coming up, and I would like to get you into that gear of dependence on Me in order for you to have a chance to make it through what’s to come. (2016:72) It’s necessary to develop some strength for what’s coming up at the world… some spiritual strength to make it through that; and that strength simply comes through having to fight for the victory… if necessary, each day. Aim for the victory, available only through applying the Help and support from Above! If things aren’t working out without availing yourself of that, it just confirms that that’s what you need. (2016:75) When times are rough, pray for the victory! And if you don’t consider that necessary, just remember that times are going to get rougher yet! (2016:76) To draw closer to Me and become more dependent on Me is a necessary process for the times to come. (16:79) Learn what you can from the toughness and see it as My given process of what you need for what’s to come! (16:80) If you don’t know how you’re gonna make it, remember it as a sign for the need of My guidance, Power and strengthening! (16:85)

The Strength and Power from Above is really what you’ll need to make it through the times coming. (16:90) It’s just good and necessary to learn not to take good things for granted… to learn to show a bit of appreciation for them. Try to take sufferings with a bit of grace and accept them as a necessary procedure to teach you some important lessons you will be able to benefit from and appreciate when the school bell rings! Life isn’t just a piece of cake, I admit… with some rough parts and situations not everybody would voluntarily go through, but that’s where you have to learn to trust Me for teaching My followers the kind of lessons I consider necessary. Try to take the hard times with a little more grace, for a lot more grace will be necessary to make it through what’s to come! (16:91)

Get in touch with Me! – The Hope that’ll give you the necessary strength to make it through your days, no matter how ugly they may seem. It’s the Spirit that gives you the necessary strength to make it through the day. (16:95) Getting used to depending on My Help and protection is part of the necessary preparation for those even darker days to come. So, don’t see it as a disadvantage to feel weak, but as a necessary process to make it through the days to come! Learning to put your trust and reliance on Me is one of the necessary progresses to make it through the coming times. (16:98)

With conditions and circumstances becoming more challenging and difficult to handle on your own, it’s all necessary preparation for the times to come when you simply won’t make it anymore without the miraculous Help from Above. (16:99) To teach you how to handle difficult times is not to make you feel forsaken by Me, but to draw you closer to Me and make you more aware of the necessity of staying as close to Me as you can, depending on My guidance and protection, and not your own physical abilities! (16:100) What My followers and believers need especially, is the acceptance of the fact that they have to dare to be different than the average type… that that’s the way I made and allowed them to become. The world needs witnesses, at least to remind them someday that there would have been opportunities for them to snap out of the worldly modes that had them wind up in a less pleasant site than others…

If circumstances are getting rougher than you expected and are used to, remember that it’s necessary preparation for the biggest changes yet to come! (16:101) Whether you’ll make it through the toughest of times to come or not, all depends on whether you’ll learn to depend on Me, My Help, Strength, Power and protection through all that is to come… - One reason why I’m making it necessary for you already to depend on them. (16:105) Hard times just seem to be necessary in order for most folks to learn the lessons life has to teach. (16:108) Can you see the need for the rough times to help or at least give you a chance to make it through the roughest to come? (16:110)

Sometimes the direction you’re supposed to go is directed by certain needs of events… And you can’t always go by how inviting and pleasant it looks. So, just be ready and willing to go where and do what you may not feel like, if I’m guiding and directing you to go there or do so, even if through circumstances of necessity! (16:112) To make it through the darkest and toughest times of history to come, miracles will be necessary! Loads of miracles will be necessary to see you through what’s coming, and according to your faith in My Promises, they will! That’s what you need to make it through a world run by the king of hell: Faith in the King of Heaven! (16:117) Not just looking at the evil around you, but confronting and dealing with the evil inside you may be the hardest part, but definitely also the most important and necessary. No victory in sight without confronting the evil most necessary to overcome first! (16:120) Tests of faith are a bit of a necessity… Not just running on faith when everything’s going honky-dory, but keeping it when it really seems to be going downhill. It’s just absolutely necessary for true faith to grow into a state totally independent of circumstances, no matter how drastic and obscure. (16:126) Bad and rough times today? Necessary prep for what’s coming tomorrow! (16:127) Changes will be hitting the globe in quite an abrupt manner, and getting used to them is quite a necessity. (16:135) Some folks try to do their job for Us in their own strength, when it’s Our Strength and anointing that’s really necessary, in order to get Heaven’s job for you done. (16:136) To start using the Source of Power from Above to make it through is a very necessary learning and development process for times to come! (16:139) To stay connected to Me is an utter necessity to learn for the times to come. The greater the need, the greater the flow of Help and sustain from Above. The groove of spiritual nourishment will be just as necessary for survival in the days to come, as the physical food. (16:147) When it comes to My Input, and My ways, the main tendency is there, that the new’s above the old, as far as your need is concerned. I’m a bit more aware of and tuned in to your present needs, so, it’s always good to stay in tune with Me, ready to receive fresh input… the stuff you need right now… today! (16:148) During the time of the End, miracles will be more necessary for My saints’ survival than during any other part of history. Those who have a purpose for Me to fulfill during the Endtime, and/or are destined to be there at My Return will only make it through the Miracle-Power I’m starting to make you familiar with the necessity of. (2016:149) When the strength of the flesh subsides, putting your trust in God’s Spirit instead is a tough change and taking you time to get used to when you’ve been able to rely on your own capacities for decades, but that’s why I’m teaching you the necessity of getting used to change. Remember what the word “lucky” means, and whose “blessing” it resembles? Well, if you’re not lucky, it shows you’re not blessed by the god of this world, going against its drift, and you need My Help, in order to make it! (2016:152) Take the relatively tough times to go through as utterly necessary preparation, making you capable of dealing with difficulties! (2016:153) Take this connection with Me of the Spirit as a very necessary part of your being, even if it’s not a common thing for those around you! (16:155)

See the desperate times and moments as necessary tools and instruments of dependence on Me and preparation for what’s to come, when you’ll simply be dependent on heavenly Help! See them as something you need to make it through what’s coming! If times get tough, see them as necessary processes of preparation for the toughest time of world history to come! See the preparation for negative circumstances and conditions as a necessary process and progress! (2016:157) Even though this world is clearly not the place for you to feel at home, there’ll be a necessity for what you’ve got to give to those who feel in a similar way about it… - That there’ll still be some sheep to feed and lead to the right Fold. (2016:158) Miraculous protection will be necessary, miraculous supplies… something I can do for you… Prayer “without ceasing,” without stopping, will be utterly necessary to make it through the days to come. Needing something – like factors to enable your survival – will require uttering some prayers for it, giving Us the glory in your praises for it, and thanking us for the Help from Above, instead of leaning on your own abilities. (2016:161) It’ll be miracles that will be necessary to survive and make it through what’s to come! (2016:162) Get used to the mode where miracles will be necessary to make it through each day of living! Get used to miracle-groove becoming a necessity without which survival for anyone who won’t accept the mark of the Beast will just take miracles on a daily basis to make it through! Prayer power – in order to make miracles happen – is becoming a much more necessary source of power and the abilities to make it through what’s coming, and you’ve got to get used to it and get into prayer-mode! (2016:167) I never said changes were easy, but necessary. (16:169) Being a positive influence to those around you is especially a lot more necessary in a world surrounded by evil forces. Remember what the attraction of money can lead to! Don’t put your faith and trust in it, but in Me instead, the ultimate Supplier of your needs and those of all My true followers, even during the time when there’ll be cash no more! Keep trusting in Me and the Powers from Heaven to supply you with what you need for your survival! It’s what you’ll need during times to come! It may be tough to see and recognize that cash or money are evil when they are what provides you with the things you need and want… but it might be a sign that you should gear your desires to the will of God and what He wants for you, and trust in the Promise that He’ll definitely provide you with the things you need. (2016:172) What you need most of all is to learn and get into the rhythm of depending on the supernatural Help from Above – in other words: miracle-time! So, feeling incapable? Just see it as a reminder of your upcoming need for the Strength and Power from Above… miraculous Help and support without which you just wouldn’t make it, and thus have to learn to lean and depend on! Not going by what’s physically visible is a challenging transfer of mental settings, but a necessary one for what’s before you! Remember that you need Me and will need My Help more than ever before in times to come! Don’t get upset about “not making it on your own,” but see it as the necessary preparation for what’s to come! (2016:173) If life is difficult, it just indicates that you might need some Help from Above, and that’s a reminder to pray and ask for It. (16:174)

Don’t be too troubled about things not being as easy for you as they used to be, but count them as necessary and strengthening preparation for the toughest times of history predicted thousands of years ago! (2016:175) Just say, “Yes, Lord, do through me whatever is necessary, regardless of whether I feel like doing it, or not!” That’s yieldedness. (2016:181) Can you see the necessity of the immense Miracle-Power that’ll be needed to do some good in a world that’s practically being drowned in a flood of evil? The necessity to overcome what’s around you has become so great – and growing by the day – that to keep going the way you went before and trying to do what you did before just won’t make any sense anymore. Getting into the gear of handling what’s coming will still take some necessary steps, and getting out of the old leaning-onthe-flesh-groove must be the first. So, get used to new moves and necessities to make it through what’s coming, and ready for change! (2016:183) Even though you may feel weakened, trust Me, that what you need is Our Strength from Above, and it will be there when you’ll need it, even if right now We’re still in the process of getting you to let loose of your own! (2016:184) See the necessity for a bit of a taste of hell, in order to develop some compassion for others who are having to go through it down there already, and may not have what it takes to prevent them from going there hereafter! (16:185) Feeling a greater need for protection and security? – Well, good preparation for times coming. (2016:187)

Life without its Source has an end… Getting closer to its Source makes it go on beyond its physical and carnal end, and what gives it a lot more sense and purpose. That’s why it’s not just recommendable to do that, but necessary, if you want to fulfill life’s sense and purpose. You may find yourself confronted with relative carnal incapability as necessary factor to introduce spiritual capacity and capability. (2016:188) Getting used to what’s different is one of the necessary learning factors for what’s ahead of you. (2016:189) In comparison, the present times – though not easy – are still better than what’s coming; but take your condition as a necessary preparation for that! So, to get into the gear of depending on heavenly Help is a necessity. - A necessary step of preparation for what’s coming. Start seeing the disability to make it without Me as a positive, necessary preparation for what’s to come! When the current circumstances strike you as the toughest you’ve ever had to go through, see it as necessary and helpful preparation for what’s to come: the toughest circumstances and situation of world history to handle and make it through that’s coming! They just remind you of what or Whom you need! See Me as the major and main Factor of your necessities! Just as your kids need their parents, so you need your heavenly Parents and Savior. Just as parents’ attendance and support is needed by kids, so heavenly Help from Above is becoming an utter necessity for you and all true believers, and you’ll just have to get used to it: used to not making it on your own through what’s coming! Not leaning on one’s own knowledge and wisdom, but that of the Holy Spirit from Above will become a necessity and requirement to make it through the darkest times and darkest episode of history to come. It might strike you as bad news that the roughest times you’ve ever had to go through are going to become even rougher, but that’s why I’m reminding you of the necessity of clinging to what you’ll need to make it, and with My input keep reminding you of Our Presence. When you can’t tell how you’ll make it, it may strike you as a discouraging factor that that’s the way things are just going to be in the near future, but then you’ll see it as the necessary preparation for what was to come. A lot of changes are necessary, of attitudes and behavior… along with the modes of handling things. (2016:191) If you’re dependent on My input and encouragement, take it as a heavenly sign and part of the necessary preparation to make it through what’s to come! Drawing you into a state of dependence on Help from Above you’ll see as an advantage and necessary preparation when the toughest conditions will have arrived. Remember that that humility is a necessary and positive part of what you need in order to know that it’s not you yourself that can save you! So, it’s a humbling process to have to rely on physically invisible Sources of Strength instead of your own physical capabilities, but a necessary one; just as you’ll realize that humility is indeed a necessary quality to obtain… since pride will reveal itself as the root and source of all the trouble on Earth to begin with. (2016:193) The Word that gave life to everything will be the Source that will enable you to keep your life in spite of all the opposing and threatening conditions placed upon this world by the devil’s ultimate rule over it; and it’ll be the era of necessary miracles. (2016:195) Placing your trust more in the positive heavenly forces to help you from Up Here, than your own mental abilities will be necessary in times to come. (2016:199) Even though life may be rough and tough in many aspects, remember it’s a necessary preparation for the roughest part of history coming! (2016:201) If your fellowmen around you do things contrary to the way you would, take it as a procedure from Me to bring about necessary changes in your life! (2016:203) I need that vacuum inside of you in order for Me to fill it and fill you up with My Strength, input and Spirit! That need has to be expressed and shown through an empty space inside of you for Me and the Spirit to fill. (2016:204) In today’s world, everybody’s getting geared to ensuring their survival through their jobs, working for their own needs and necessities, while trusting in the Father means, letting Him take care of your survival. Serving Him means to stop worrying about financial needs and your survival. It means, take hold of and trust in Him for your protection, provision and survival! If you can’t make it with your own, physical means as well as you used to, it means, no more trust and confidence in your own abilities, but the necessary Help and support from Above. It may not have been as necessary before, but it’s becoming absolutely necessary to make it through the times to come. (2016:207) Let it dawn on you that I’m what you need most of all! (17:1)

When you’re feeling unsure whether you can make it, don’t see it as a negative, but as a reminder of your dependence on Me and your needed Help from Above! Getting used to tougher circumstances is very necessary preparation for the days up ahead. (17:5) If life’s getting tougher, don’t view it as a downhill trot, but as necessary preparation for what’s up ahead and something you desperately need! Don’t let the circumstances have the dominion over your spiritual state and shape, but learn to overcome them and rise above to get what you need from Up Here! (17:6) The state in which you don’t know what to do or find yourself unable to, gets you into the necessary shape to apply for Help from Up Here to get done what you can’t and lead and guide you where you’re supposed to go. It’s what gets you into the gear of prayer, asking Me to show you and help you. (17:12) You definitely get the point about the need to overcome feelings and emotions when they’re negative. - Another point of the need to overcome circumstances that might be causing those moods. (17:15) Don’t see the need of My leading and guidance as an utter disadvantage, but get closer to and hooked on the advantage of depending on My Spirit, leading and guidance! It’s what you’ll need and be dependent on in the not too distant future! (17:16)

The tendency and drift for things and conditions to be on a downhill move is just necessary to get into a more desperate groove where you realize there’s not much chance to make it without Help from Above. (17:19) If your non-comfortability down there makes conditions and circumstances tougher for you, it’s a positive in that it draws you closer to Us, making you more conscious of your need for heavenly Help! When you don’t feel like you can manage the way things are going, it’s a good reminder of your need for My Help, and that you’ve got to do something to get ahold of It: pray! The seemingly impossible situations are reminders of your need of the Help from Above. Remember the necessary appliance of miracle power! (17:22) Feeling incapable of doing it on your own? – Good preparation for what’s to come! See it as something positive! – The necessary process of preparation for desperate times to come! Not making it on your own and with your own capabilities anymore is part of the necessary process to prepare you for what’s to come. (17:27) Learning utter dependence on Me is the most urgent need. If there’s nothing you can do, it shows you need Me and Heaven’s Help in order to do it. (17:30) When you don’t know how to do it on your own, the greater the chance for Us to play Our part, because the need for Us is there, and someday you’ll recognize that as an unexpected, positive advantage. The more disastrous your circumstances, the greater your need for Our Help. The more rotten the circumstances, the clearer the sign for a need of change. When things aren’t going and flowing as you’d expect them to, see that as a necessary part of preparation for what’s to come – when pretty much nothing down there will run the way things are supposed to! (17:31) Circumstances around growing negative and dark are a sign of the need to set your focus on the spiritual Light of the world. (17:33) Life getting harder is a sign of no more chance to make it in your own strength of the flesh, but a demonstration of your need for and dependence on the Power from Above to make it. Something you need and are utterly dependent on, you’ve got to learn to desperately ask for! The enemy’s imitations of the Real Thing and Our divine values are another main factor that weakens folks’ faith and confidence in Us and the realization of their need for Us and Our Help, when they see so many folks around them making it in their own capacities. That mankind doesn’t learn the lessons from history, is another sign that changes are necessary. (17:34) Needing Me’s a good sign, and a better mode than independence; even if not exactly sounding popular according to the themes of the world. (17:35) Awareness of potential risks and troubles has become a necessity. The more needed you make Us feel, the more useful We’ll become to you. (17:36) If folks around you may not be able to relate to the state you’re in… see it as part of the necessary being different! (17:37) Protection from Up Here is something you’ve needed pretty much all the time, and you’ll need all the more in darker days up ahead. Getting familiar with those necessities is an advantage. Becoming more aware of a growing need and necessity is a plus.

See, the greater the need for My blessings, Help and care from Above, the more of them will also be there! (17:41) Get used to the fact of miracles becoming a necessity! (17:34) Learn how to use Heaven’s Power to convert negative earthly circumstances into something positive in spite of it all! That’s a necessary process, especially in regards to the truly tough times to come. (17:44) My leading and guidance is going to be definitely necessary in times to come, so I'm working on getting you used to it. (17:46)

To barley manage to handle things leads to a necessity in the bleaker future ahead. Don’t be too flabbergasted about things becoming tougher, when I’m just leading you through the necessary preparation for what’s to come! Have the necessary patience for others that We’ve had to have for you! (17:51) The more chaotic your circumstances and situations, the more you’ll recognize the need for My Help, protection and Strength and Power to make it through. No support from your fellow humans? – A confirmation of the importance of the necessity to start leaning on Me instead. (17:55)

Remember what My life ended up in… something that didn’t look positive at all, but was necessary for your and many others’ Salvation! Salvation sometimes requires another one’s willingness to sacrifice! (17:57) Becoming able to handle the tough times is part of the necessity of preparation for what's up ahead. (17:59) If situations and circumstances are getting tough, trust Us that We know what We’re allowing! It may be a big test of faith, but it’s one of the necessities; finding out where your faith and trust are really at, and if they’re not what they should be, to strengthen them through having to put them more into action through circumstances that aren’t the “normal” type, where you’ve just got to put your trust in Us and the fact that We know what We’re doing and allowing. (17:60) Consider dependence on Me and Help from Above an advantage, since there are times coming when that ability will be an utter necessity! (17:63) Even if the circumstances aren’t what you’d prefer, take’em as something necessary to get you ready for the even worse ones to come, set up by the enemy and his folk! (17:70) To be ready to receive My changes for the positive without knowing exactly what is up ahead, includes the need for faith and trust! (17:71) Deal with the fact that not being a perfect receptor will always include the necessity of some cleansing of what you receive! Cleansing is an important overall necessity and required process in the world you’re in. (17:76) To make that effort to get ahold of Me may not seem all that necessary yet right now, but it will be in the days to come, you’ll see. To stay focused and mind-oriented toward Me is one of the essential necessities to make it through what’s coming. (17:79) The darker the circumstances, the greater the miracles. - Along with the need for them. (17:80) The need of heavenly Help isn’t a negative, but something you’re going to have to get used to. Heavenly Strength is what you’ll absolutely need for each day of the Endtime coming. If there’s one thing that principally applies to doing what I’m telling you, it’s asking Me for the necessary Help and anointing to make it through the day. (17:84) In order to get used to availing yourself of the Strength from Above, it’s easier to do so through the tougher times, when it becomes more obviously necessary that you need My Help and support to make it through. Not relying on own capacities is a a necessary transition, but not really one that comes “naturally” or easily for folks who’ve been able to rely on their own fleshly capacities for the majority of their lives. (17:89) You need nothing and no one else the way you’ll need Me to make it through what’s coming and expecting the world! As far as your attitude toward your fellow-humans is concerned, remember the necessity of patience just as We Up Here are needing patience with the amount of time it takes folks to learn the lessons We’ve been trying to teach them for years! As far as your needs are concerned, keep trusting Me for them, keep praying for them, and trust Me that the prayers will be answered according to your faith! (17:91) While it’s still true that “the greatest of these is love (1.Cor.13:13),” it’s simply becoming more necessary to have faith in that love, because the times in which you’re living, that love is becoming rarer by the minute. (17:93)

Clinging to Me is one of necessities to stand a chance to make it through the most troubled times of history coming. (17:95) In order to get out of, or avoid chaotic and disastrous situations, prayer’s a necessity. If you feel too weak to cope with it all, it should show you the necessity of My heavenly Strength, instead of just your own, natural capacities. (17:96) Not being able to rely on what’s around you is what strengthens your dependence on Me and the Power from Above, and that’s a necessity to learn for the darkest times to come. (17:97) Improvement comes about through the experiences of the necessity for it through unpleasant factors. (17:101) See the spiritual gifts as more important factors to make it through what’s coming than your physical needs! When the ego’s the most important part of someone, there’s little chance for them to spot their need for Salvation. (17:102) To make your faith and ability to overcome grow is a necessity to make it through the times to come. (17:104) See dependence on Me as important part of the necessary preparation for the dark days to come! If times are developing into a state where you don’t see or feel how you’ll make it, let it be as a reminder of the need of the Help from Above, and don’t see it as a negative, but as a positive and utterly helpful preparation! If you feel like you can’t make it anymore, let it be a reminder that you need Me! (17:105) See it as the area in which change is most required and necessary: yourself! Often, what needs to change most in order to improve and make things better, is one’s own perspectives and ways of looking at things. Do not let circumstances affect you, but look Up Here, at Me, Who can change them all, or give you the necessary grace and strength to overcome them! (17:106) Faith is a necessity to make it through what’s to come. Learning to deal with unpleasant circumstances and conditions is necessary preparation for the most unpleasant ones to come in history. My miracles will be all the more available when truly needed! (17:108) If circumstances down there tend to drag you down, that’s another sign of the need to look Up - toward Me, the “Author and Finisher of your faith (Heb.12:2)!” (17:109) What makes you stronger is My connection with you, and you’ve got to keep it in mind as the Source of your necessary strength to make it through each day. (17:110) To keep the heavenly Light-connection running is a necessity to make it through the darkest stretch of history coming. Get ready for the times when miracles and tangible heavenly Help will become an utter daily necessity! Don’t feel bad about needing more time with Me than you did before! See the need and necessity for tough times and circumstances to deal with as the preparation to help you make it through what’s coming! (17:111) Becoming dependent on My input will definitely be a necessity in the dark times coming! (17:113) According to Our ways, it’s a progress for Our believers to learn to rely on Our heavenly Strength, and that need usually arises through the appearance of physical weakness. It’s a better way, not relying on one’s own ways of the flesh. And the aspect of that need usually only arises when that factor has sunk down. If things and circumstances aren’t the way you’d wish for them to be, let it be a reminder of the necessity of change! A lot of your choices depend on what sort of change you welcome. Another reason and factor of importance of the necessity of staying tuned to Our leading and guidance - the guidance of the Holy Spirit. (17:115) When you feel the need to get close to Me, that’s just the necessary preparation for what’s to come when you simply won’t make it without Me. So, don’t see these reminders as negatives! See them as what you need, even if they may consist of temporal emotional downcasts. But to become lifted up right after hearing from Me, isn’t that a confirmation of what I’ve been telling you? So, see that need for Me as a positive - and a necessary one to prepare you for the toughest times of history to come! Equal needing Me with positivity! When there are so many things you need for your daily survival, isn’t it almost strange that you shouldn’t need the Help of your Lord, God and Creator during the darkest times of history to come? - And a bit before it to prepare you and get you ready to make it through that? The times into which you’re coming will be the most needful times of miracles in history, so make sure you’re learning to confide in and avail yourself of them as pretty much the primary necessity for the dark times to come! Learn to wait until the necessary inspiration comes to do things in My Might!

When you have to wait for something, it might just be a reminder of the necessity to pray. (17:116) The endless hearers of sermons without ever being appliers of a single sermon they hear, should drive home the need and necessity for true followers of Mine, folks who don’t just hear and never do it or act on what they hear, but those who actually live and act on My Word. (17:117) The challenge is to learn to make it through rough days and times with My Help. Without recognizing the need for it, who’d ever do it? You’re not one of many who do, but one of the few. Take the roughness of the present days as necessary preparation for the truly rough times to come! (17:119) One of the main factors to make out of life what it’s supposed to be: letting the Father make it what it should be by asking him for any necessary changes coming up. Praying for necessary change would be the first thing believers should do. (17:121) The necessity of the immediate future will be miraculous protection. Survival and protection are becoming the no.1 necessity. Just get used to it, that you’ll be needing semi-permanent miraculous protection! So, get used to the Miracles-Necessity-Groove! Don’t fear potentially upcoming negative circumstances, but have the necessary respect for your Lord and Savior! (17:122) See the necessity for impending tough times? If folks would be more the way they should be, things might be different. But you can tell from behavior that judgment is becoming a necessity. (17:124) As you can tell that each day is being a spiritual battle, you ought to be aware of the necessity of defense. (17:125) I know, it takes faith to accept what I’ve been allowing, but see it as part of the necessary preparation for not just uneasy times, but the toughest and hardest ones of all of history! (17:126) The dependence on God somewhat also depends on the necessity of its realization. It has to become your reality, so to speak, not just something you gathered in theory. The importance of desperation will become more realized through its coming necessity. I need folks to help Me show the world that there’s still Someone more powerful behind the scenes than the one who’ll take over as the ruler of the world for “One time, two times, and a half.” 42 months or 1260 days (Rev.11:3, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5). So, don’t feel “guilty” about having to depend on Me and your daily time with Me, but see it as one of the coming absolute necessities to make it through the times to come… (17:128) When it comes to surviving the worldwide persecution of My followers the enemy will set in gear after his physical takeover of what will then be the obvious antichrist, it will be the greatest era of necessities for miracles of history. So, get used to the necessity of miracles! Miracles of protection, supply and basically, survival, until I come! (17:130) Times are coming when confidence in Me and the Father will be necessary in order to make it through it all. To make it through the darkest times of history, Help from Above’s a necessity - the only way to make it through. Whenever you feel like you can’t make it, that’s the sign that should remind you of the need for My Strength, Power and Light, without which you simply won’t make it through the darkest times to come. So, see your necessity for Me as a definite positive - the one you’ll only be able to manage to make it through the most negative times to come! (17:131) Just see Me as the daily Necessity for you to manage and make it! You’ll need Me to do anything in times to come, and you might as well get into that mental groove right now, of needing Me for everything you’d want to do and get accomplished. (17:135) Get into that groove of permanent application for the utterly necessary heavenly Help to make it! Relationships bring out the effect of weaknesses and bad habits… A big factor on the necessity of human relationships. (17:137) Where are grace and mercy more needed than when one’s behaviors aren’t exactly what one would consider the Christian type? Where are they more necessary than when sinful behavior is quite obvious, and not as well hidden as in most other cases? And what could We welcome more than someone’s awareness of the need of Our grace, mercy and forgiveness? (17:138) “Preparation” is an important topic in order to grasp the seriousness of the necessity to get ready for the most evil times of history. The greatest necessity of the coming near future: miracles. So get ready to use them, for without them, it just won’t work! No one will make it without miracles! (17:139) Just get used to the fact that you’ll need Me to make it! (17:140)

When you desperately need Me, because the surroundings are too depressing to make it through your day cheerfully, you also need My input more desperately. And desperate needs are like a vacuum for Me that I love to fill. (17:142) Learning to deal with tough times is an essential necessity and preparation for the times to come. (17:143) Whatever you need to know, I’ll reveal unto you, if you have the necessary faith and trust, which keeps growing through your gift of believing in Me and hearing from Me. (17:146) Miracles will be a necessity to see you through what’s coming. (17:147) To tune in to Me is what will become an absolute necessity to make it through the dark times coming. (17:148)

…Neglect Neglect is ugly, when it comes to its results. But you can start today to make a difference and undo the damage by stopping the neglect. (III:526) Millions of fathers are so preoccupied with their careers and accomplishments, that they neglect spending time with the ones they claim they’re doing it all for. They invest their energies and time in “being good providers,” but neglect the very ones they are providing for… Yes, faith without works is dead, but works without love are dead, too. At least as far as those around you are concerned who you are neglecting on behalf of your works. They’d rather have a little bit of your love, instead of your works. (III:576) It takes faithful practice to get your mind under My control, and if you neglect it for a day, it’s going to take you greater effort the next. (IV:15) The enemy knows just what it takes to get you to neglect your greatest and most important duty of all. (IV:26) The fact how long it took even My attentive students to figure out the fundamental truth about the importance of focusing on the heart of a person they’re facing, instead of all the other ado that makes up the outward appearance , status, title, rank or position in the world, shows how badly needed and neglected It is, and how little folks really know about the most important Factor of the universe: Love. (IV:433) You’re finding out that you won’t get very far spiritually without Me, Whom all the necessities of life represent. If you neglect them, or Me, in the long run you’ll find out that something’s desperately wrong and missing from your life and the way things should be. (IV:478) Neglect of Me is what will result in emptiness. (IV:509) It’s very common human nature to tend to neglect and underestimate the importance of the role I play in your lives. (IV:529) Most people are busy all their lives “rendering unto Cesar,” but they dreadfully neglect to give God His due. (11:3) Perhaps you’re giving some of the things you pursue and desire too much importance, neglecting some of the actually more important things, and that’s the reason why you can’t seem to find any lasting satisfaction in the things you pursue. (11:34)

I’m drilling you to learn by your own experience and from your mistakes; what happens when you forget to do this or neglect to do that, etc. (11:43) Don’t neglect your time with Me, because that is the most important part, if you don’t want to miss your purpose in pursuing this road! (11:50) If you neglected others, do you think it might be possible that you’re also quite prone to neglecting Me? (11:80) There’s a reason and a purpose for your being there, and you shouldn’t neglect that. (11:107)

Do all that you can, not to neglect that job and calling and purpose I gave and continue giving to My disciples and followers, so that you won’t have to regret having neglected that major purpose of My followers’ lives! (16:46) Don’t neglect the groove of spiritual nourishment, which will be just as necessary for survival in the days to come, as the physical food! (16:147) Incapability is there to remind you of the need of heavenly Help you can get for nothing but asking for It through prayer. So, don’t neglect that spiritual task - more important that any of the physical ones you have to do! (17:84) Positive changes don’t come by themselves, as long as the negative forces are still in control down there, which is one of the main factors why prayer is such an important ingredient, and you can tell from the negative results of neglecting that task of true believers. When you neglect important factors like prayer, to what extent can you imagine the enemy goes to in order to hinder you and prevent you from it? (17:96) Prayer is a largely important factor you’ll wish not to have neglected. (17:121) Prayer! If that’s one of a believer’s main tasks, how can you neglect it? Something needs to be learned about neglecting to ask for Help and protection from Above! (17:137)

…NWOs (Need-Work-Ons) To know where you're at, where your faith lies and what you still need to work on is good! It shows the need. (II:363) Accept people! - Yourself, and anybody you can think of. They all may have a looong list of NWOs, but they're only going to ever be able to even begin making progress with them if they're being loved. (II:466) It’s a good habit to confront yourself daily with your needs, flaws and NWOs. Otherwise you may not think or know that you have anything to work towards! You may think, all things are okay as they are, no improvement needed! And that would be a fatally flawed attitude! (III:520) It certainly doesn’t help to close the eyes on any NWOs. (III:565) It’s great and commendable that you want to work out and overcome your NWOs, and that you want to face them, have them sorted out, and get into a position where they won’t have that much of a grip on you. But the main point is that the way you’re going to achieve this is not by focusing on them, your own condition, and the waves, but on Me, the Solution Giver, and the only One Who can help you overcome all that. (IV:54) What’s still one big NWO for mankind is to learn to treat their fellowmen with more respect and greater care. (IV:270) While change has been a good theoretical subject, putting those things into practice just happens to be one NWO. (16:116) Everyone’s got their own faults, and you’ve got your NWOs as well… so… seeing others’ faults, no reason to become selfrighteous! (16:128) If impatience symbolizes a lack of faith, and you know how important faith is, it certainly shows that impatience is quite an NWO. (16:136) Looking down on and judging others is a bad trait, and just one of the devil’s favorite tricks to keep folks blind of their own weaknesses and NWOs. (2016:143) Your attitude and capacity to handle troublesome circumstances are one of your major NWOs, one of the things you have to learn the most to put up with. (2016:152) If you blame the state you’re in on others, it’s another NWO related to relationships and how to get along and bring forth unity in spite of the enemy’s efforts to create the opposite between you. (16:198)

Even if you have a lot of NWOs and weaknesses to overcome, I’m still at your side, and not threatening to leave you, as might be your impression of earthly folks by your side. (17:8) The most important thing: loving Me and your neighbor as yourself; but then again, it’s better to hear from Me, even if you don’t manage. At least I can remind you of shortcomings that require some NWO. (17:9) Taking things for granted is a negative human habit, which is why appreciation is one of the major NWOs. So, take taking things for granted as an NWO! – A negative trait one should work on overcoming! (17:19) Relying on their own knowledge is basically one of the major NWOs of people, which is also part of the factor why the forbidden fruit that caused the fall of mankind was the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Basically, it meant that mankind chose to get to know evil. And that’s the process world history’s in right now. Discover the difference! (17:46) Just because you’re having a hard time getting along with some of your fellow humans, it doesn’t mean that relationships aren’t a necessary NWO. (17:74) Take behavior as one major NWO when it needs some definite work of improvement! (17:78) Everyone’s got their lessons to learn and NWOs. As much as others have their NWOs, so do you! (17:104) If there are still too many NWOs, well, you’ve still got to work on them, before you can come Home. (17:123) If the very Son of God had to learn to deal and put up with human imperfection, can you blame Us for including that in your NWOs of things to learn as well? (17:126) With as much of an NWO as pride has become for you through leaning on your abilities and talents… well, just don’t see it as a negative to get humbled instead! (17:143)

…Old vs. New (/Young) I always bless it when My followers are willing to forsake the old in order to embrace the new. (I:144) Exposing the tricks the enemy pulls, in order to sneakily rebuild your old man, shows that if you don't watch it, that old man is going to creep up again, and before you know it, you'll find yourself stuck in a new Egypt the enemy helped you build in your life. (II:293) I can always give you a brand new chance, a brand new beginning, a brand new ticket, a brand new life! Not only do I stand for newness and everything that represents change and renewal and revolution, but I can also impart that newness to anyone else who would like. A new life can be yours and anyone's for the asking - no matter what situation you're in or how old, worn out and useless you may feel. I can make new out of the old - regardless of conditions and circumstances. (II:398) I have quite a different perspective on life and all that goes with it: what I consider young or old, compared to the way people look at these issues. When people think their lives are practically over, that's when I like to begin to really use some of them. (II:426) To hell with the old way! Open your life to My new, unconventional way, the way on which you'll have to trust Me for every step. (II:456) In order to receive the new, you have to make room for it by letting go of the old. (II:508) There will never be a lack of surprises, of new discoveries, of new, unexpected twists and turns in events. You will never be able to say, "Now I know everything there is to know..." There will always be whole new worlds and dimensions to discover, new angles from which to see things, new additions to make your scope wider, which will burst your former limits. (II:576)

You have to deny your old self, the old man, that about which was said, "You are a new creature, yes, but boy, how that old man likes to pop up again." It's the old man, your carnal man, which is at enmity with God, whom you must deny access to the place from which you govern your life. The old self is all about taking and getting. The new man, the new creature, is all about giving. The old man is negative, the new man is positive. Once you're born again and you have learned to let Me empty you of all the old things and fill you with My new and good things, you give instead of constantly being concerned about getting more, acquiring more, consuming and accumulating, which was the game of the old man, then you can learn to embrace your new man, My spiritual creation that is you. (II:612) “The Spirit quickens and makes alive” means, it's always young and moving, never old and stagnant, brittle or conservative, stuck on the old way of doing things, never resting on any laurels of yesterday. It takes each new day as an opportunity for a new beginning: "This is the first day of the rest of your life." Make each day as if it were the first day of a new period of your life, and it is, because it's a different period than the past. It's the present: the beginning of the future, where you can do all things differently than you ever did them before. Break out of the cocoon of the old! Experience My newness! Don't get stuck in any old mindsets, even if you "already have the truth!" Good for you! But what is the truth that I want to teach you today? What is the lesson, the metanoia, the revelation for this day? This day, I can make all things new. (II:625) The older you get, and the more weary you become of life and all its difficulties, which often at first were hidden from you, the closer you draw to Me, and you come to Me, realizing that you need Me. (III:89) Embrace the newness I can bring into your lives through the power of forgiveness, the power of change, the power of the renewing of the Holy Ghost, the Power of Love! (III:283) You cannot have the new unless you let go of the old, and you cannot let go of the old unless you deem it undesirable, nothing you want. (III:353) I'm trying to get you out of your little ruts and routines in order to bring about something new - a break with the old, and the beginning of something new. Forget about the former way of doing things, period. Make room for the new! (III:355) It often takes quite a few years until I can get a person to the point where they're willing to lay everything - all that playing games - aside and follow Me. It took Abraham getting to the point of "looking at his own body as good as dead," and yet "he staggered not at the promise through unbelief" (Romans 4:19, 20). Not many young people are even interested in characters like Abraham, Noah and Moses these days, because youth has been so overly glorified by the media. (III:356) Sometimes the quickest way to get more is to let go of the old and open your life for the new that I’ve got in store for you. (III:483)

Most people are usually not ready to give their whole energies to My Cause until they’ve reached an age where their bodies don’t promise any more glory anyway. As long as there’s a bit of physical glory left, man tries to let the light shine on himself, rather than using it to glorify Me and draw the attention to Me, My message and Salvation. (IV:29) Youth stands for a smooth and attractive surface, but it’s often the depths of the many wrinkles of old age that reveal the true intricacy of life. When you’re young, everything seems so simple, so smooth, just like the surface of the skin you see in the mirror. Everything seems to be upbeat and energy and singing the tale of progress. Only with the passage of time and more time do people begin to realize that what is truly considered progress is something often quite different from those things they pursued in their younger years. Values change. The younger you are, the more you want to do yourself. The weaker you become, the more you learn to rely and depend on My Strength, and I want to prove that this is the way you truly get more accomplished. (IV:55) Remember that the disciple of the Kingdom finds in his treasure both things old and new! The Bible is the “old” things you take out of your treasure, and I add the new things I give you in abundance. The Bible is your foundation. It doesn’t give you the feeling that it’s “old” or worn out. You still keep getting new little revelations from it. What I give is like manna: I give it every day anew, and according to the need of the day. I can make all things new, and even the old things get a new touch if I breathe on them and blow them your way with a new twist, a new viewpoint and angle… So, a lot of the secret and mystery of life and making the most out of it is finding the new in the old: find the new application of some of the same old basic and fundamental truths, and see which ones are applicable today! It’s like the same old sunshine, same old rain, but needing to shine and flow into new places today to bring forth new fruit, new things that weren’t there before. (IV:217) The fundamental difference has always been between those who clung to the old, existing system, and those who were ready to let it go in favor of the new, which is, in essence, that which I want to bring into the world and into each individual life that is ready and makes room for it. (IV:235)

I’m not too concerned about conserving any previous ways or notions, but actually more prone to tossing over the old and starting something completely new with whoever is willing to follow, if that’s the way I’m going to get My message spread, souls saved, lives changed and get people turned on to My Spirit, instead of everyone decaying in the same old way things have always been done. (IV:271) You’ve got to let the old go in order to have the new… Even if there’s pain involved with it… It takes courage to embrace the new and let go of the old. But that’s what you’ve got to focus on: the new that’s out there ahead before you, not the old you’re leaving behind! (IV:349) The flesh always resents having to strike out into new, unknown territory and will almost always prefer the old settings it’s familiar with. (IV:394) There is always an old and a new way to do it, and usually I’m the Promoter of the new, that which is truly new, and not the pseudo innovations of the enemy, which are usually just the same old selfish attitudes in a new dress. (IV:399) I have used older ones for greater tasks than they could have ever dreamed of accomplishing in their younger years… (IV:427)

The odds against you having made the right choice to put your trust in Me become greater as you grow older: the doubts become seemingly more substantiated. Am I really Son of a God Who's capable of caring for His Own, even when they've become old, fragile, weak and brittle? Or do I only work for those who are young and strong and idealistic enough until they become older and wiser?(IV:445) The death of the old is always for the purpose of the birth of something new; a new creature, and you have to envision that new someone I want to make out of you and grasp hold of that vision and go for it! (IV:473) Maybe from where I stand I can see that it’s the better option to have you start a new life instead of just adding new factors and players to your old… Maybe the new life I’ve promised is not so much dependent on outward conditions, such as the place where you’re going to live, as inward changes… (IV:504) You simply cannot reconcile both worlds, the old and the new. One will take over the other, and as you know, it is I Who will make all things new. (11:9) I bring changes. I bring parting with the old in order to introduce new factors. The new factors to the equation are what keeps the whole matter alive… (11:36) Sometimes it’s just better not to go by the way things have been before, and get ready for the new things to come, even if it may seem quite a lot harder than what you’ve been through in the past! (16:15) Don’t expect too much of yourself too soon! The older you get, the more of a chance I have to do it through you! (16:110) With physical abilities like memory going down, thus, with age also losing a bit of what they call intelligence… carnal knowledge… wouldn’t it be something if the godly wisdom would still thrive and become even stronger in you? As different as My views are compared to those of the world… let Me say the wise thoughts of the aged are impressing Me more than the high “intelligence” of their youth… and which one is more lasting? (16:118) The diminishing of human intelligence at older age signifies the downhill slope of earthly life. Fortunately, that downhillslope makes older folks more receptive for what’s to come than they’ve mainly been at a younger age and higher physical and mental capacities. Unfortunately, some negative traits can increase with that decrease of physical and mental capacities, too… Mainly symbolizing the only temporary quality of earthly and carnal life compared to what’s expecting you in time-unlimited spirit-state. (16:140) When it comes to My Input, and My ways, the main tendency is there, that the new’s above the old, as far as your need is concerned. I’m a bit more aware of and tuned in to your present needs, so, it’s always good to stay in tune with Me, ready to receive fresh input… the stuff you need right now… today! (16:148) When you’re headed and bent on a new way of doing and approaching things, take My encouragement that it’s a pretty good sign that your leading towards it comes from Up Here, even if originally you didn’t feel that way about it! (2016:151) To get through what’s coming, you’ll have to come up with something new… something I’ll have to show you and lead you to… not anything you could come up with in your own mind of the flesh. Getting into the gear of handling what’s coming will still take some necessary steps, and getting out of the old leaning-onthe-flesh-groove must be the first. So, get used to new moves and necessities to make it through what’s coming, and ready for change! (2016:183)

It’s time to get ready for something new! - New challenges, new conditions, new factors, and thus also new tactics to make it and manage through. The old will be what used to be the ways that things used to work out – but won’t anymore. (2016:188) Growing older as a believer you start growing a bit closer and more ready for your coming Home. (2016:197) Maybe there’s a better and new way for you to see things, and the way in which you should. So, things contrary to your way: dare to see them as a positive. Maybe they’ll bring forth a positive change in your mindset and attitude, and least of all, the acquaintance with something new instead of the same old. (2016:203) You’ve got to get used to the fact that being older is not a disadvantage, as far as I’m concerned. The older you are, the less you lean on the strength of the flesh, which starts shrinking around that time, and you become more accepting of the fact that you need help… and in the case of believers: Help from Above. (17:131)

…Opposites & the Totally Other Usually it's whatever you're not so comfy with, that I'm trying to stress and emphasize on in your life, always the "totally other," your N(eed)W(ork)O(n)s, your challenge points... (II:224) "Forget what you know!" You must be open to a completely new experience. I'm the New, the totally Other, not the old, the things you're familiar with. You're forced to find out whether that difference in others you're finding difficult to cope with is something good, or not. In other words, you have to find out whether you should make an effort to adapt to it, or whether you should confront it, which presents an extra "bonus" challenge to you. In any case, it teaches you to deal with others, teaches you about them and how to handle differences, and, in some extreme case, it teaches you to love, accept and embrace the totally other. It teaches you flexibility and the ability to consider totally different factors and angles than you might previously have been aware of. It opens your eyes to totally new views. If you learn these things under the guidance of My Spirit you can truly learn and acquire wisdom that way. You've got to see Me in it, in order for it all to make perfect sense. It takes the "sting" out of what you're experiencing when you know it's for your good, like all things, and when you can see a purpose with a goal in it. The goal is greater understanding and wisdom. It's greater insight into the human heart, and simultaneously, into the heart of God, as you learn to see the full scope of different angles and possible viewpoints. People need to realize that love is something greater than what they often consider love. "Love loves the unlovely." It reaches out to those you would have no natural desire to reach out for. It seeks what is best for them, not what you may think is best for them. It seeks what is really the best for them. It is open to possibilities that are contrary to your own natural expectations or notions of what others might need, as drawn from your own conclusions based on your own needs. Love makes an effort to see the other - the totally other side! It expands its view way beyond one’s own limited personal view of things and is ready to deal with what's totally different, even opposite of what you've known all along. Love makes you grow. It doesn't just keep you in your comfy-cozy little world right where you are. It doesn't hesitate to get its hands dirty, to move beyond the familiar place of one's own comfort, to go out to the highways and hedges, to a strange land in order to find there totally other perspectives of life in a needy heart or soul. It sees the need and does something about it. Love makes you grow beyond the limitations and confines of your former, your present world. It constantly expands and causes you to expand and stretch your horizon, to venture out into new realms of perception, yet always staying loyal to the True Center of all, which is Me, the Initiator of true growth. True love will never just let you stay in your own little world, stagnating in your old view. Love is like Me, because Love is what I am, and like every aspect of Me: Revolution, constant change, the totally other. It challenges you. It is your oldest desire and yet constantly new. Love is thrilling and mind-blowing: you cannot comprehend it, only receive a portion of it and pass it on. Love is My Spirit which is like the wind that bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof but canst not tell from whence it cometh or whither it goeth. You can never figure out love. You can only know it in your heart, it doesn't fit in your head. Love is the secret, the all-powerful force that rules and guides the universe, for Love is God. It's so much greater than anything that men could pin down and define with their finite minds, and it's definitely so much greater than some of man's limited perceptions of it.

One has to watch out that they're not confusing love with some own selfish need for security or affection and something that will actually stop them from experiencing the fullness of My true love in their lives. Love will lead you to situations that are beyond your experiences, to places beyond your present limits. Absolute authenticity is one of My qualities. When it came to people, there wasn’t much there for Me to copy. The only thing worth copying in My eyes was the Father, and He certainly is different, the totally Other, when it comes to people. And so am I. And so do those become who hang with Me. They become different. They become weird. You don’t necessarily want to be different. You’d prefer to fit in and blend in and just hang with everybody and “chill.” Well, I have chosen a different destiny for you. It’s the differences that avoid your merely falling in love with your own images of yourselves in each other. If all you really love about the other person is just their similarities with you, then what else is it but narcism? And that’s what some people claim, love amounts to. Well, prove them wrong by loving the totally other, the person who is totally different from you and has totally different points of view, and opinions that differ strongly from yours. The devil promotes same-kind relationships, so that nobody will reach out for the other, much less for the totally Other, which is Me. Whatever is “their own” is what has priority. That’s why it’s so hard to create unity between different Christian churches and denominations, because each of them primarily respects and is loyal to their own, which is somewhat “natural,” but then being a disciple of Mine is all about not following the mere “natural” way – since the natural man or mind is at enmity with God. My way is supernatural. So, a challenge to take on, on My behalf or as a Christian, would be to seek the group of people that is the least like your own, and try to reach out to them and find common ground with them… try to bring Me to them. Dealing with people is your job for Me, reaching out to people, and reaching them with My message, and in this case, what’s particularly challenging about it is the aspect of reaching different people, since most people simply happen to be quite different from you. That’s the great magic of My story: I, the totally Other and ultimate and epitome of being different than mankind, became just like you, in order for you to be able to become like Me. In order to teach people to not just love their own kind, you must give an example of loving those who are different from you to begin with, make an effort to relate to them, be a sample of someone who is accepting and understanding of those who are quite different in views and manners from yourself. I’m trying to teach you and bring about in you progress in the area of greater tolerance and acceptance of the totally other, one of the things which the world most needs. What they really hated about Me, and what they couldn’t pinpoint or figure out, what they were most jealous and envious of and bitter about, was My relationship with the Father. If the Father is the totally Other, He’s the Light that they’re all scared spitless of in their darkness, and He was the ingredient about Me, the one Factor that bothered them most, just like it’s your relationship with Me that people most resent about you. You’re weird enough as you are already, they figure, but that “Jesus-business” just about takes the cake, as far as they’re concerned. If they don’t have any room in their hearts and minds for Me, the totally Other, then they usually won’t have any tolerance for different kinds of people, either. This doesn’t mean that there may not be atheists who may show even more tolerance and acceptance of other kinds of people than even many supposed believers, but it just shows that My presence in people’s lives isn’t necessarily limited to labels such as “Christian” or any other religious or philosophical drawers and labels, but My Spirit flows freely into the lowest places and humble hearts and shuns the proud and haughty of whatever confession and religious affiliation. – The most perfect examples of which were the Scribes and Pharisees, who have many modern counterparts. Sometimes the opposite of what appears to the carnal mind, is actually the truth. True faith is the opposite of all that is ‘your own’, for it comes not from ‘your own’ world, nor ‘your own’ mind, nor from any place or realm that is ‘your own’. For the Kingdom of God does not belong to any man, but any man can choose to belong to the Kingdom of God. So, there are those who claim to be Mine, but they only want to use Me, instead of letting Me use them. There are those who want to make Me ‘their own’, but refuse to let Me truly call them My own, for they refuse to listen to Me and they refuse to obey Me. Those are the ones of whom I prophesied in My Word, ‘I have never known you’. (see Mt.7:22,23) For how can I know them, if they continuously lock Me out of their hearts & lives, when I want to come in & know them? When you shall seek for Me with all your hearts, I will let you find Me. Though what you will find is often the opposite of what you were hoping for in the flesh: death of self, death to the flesh, death to pride & everything that exalts itself. In the World, everybody basically seeks their own glory, and to glorify themselves, to pride themselves in their accomplishments & pat themselves on the back, or proving their worth & showing off with the status they have achieved to

reach by themselves, through their own hands or by means of fleshly heritage in the things they acquire, their material possessions, their wealth, their cars, houses & other status symbols. Whereas the status symbols of the Spirit World are the exact opposite: "The less there is of you, the more the light shines through" is the slogan in the spirit, and the less you exalt yourself & seek your own glory, and the more you seek to glorify God, and just fill the need by whatever humble and invisible action, that is what makes you shine with greater brilliance & glory. Change is really the opposite of the devil's spirit of stagnation. Although he pretends to be the great pioneer of change & progress in the World & accuses Christians & believers of being old-fashioned, in the spirit his philosophy is really old and rotten, and the same kind of selfish & greedy philosophy he has been introducing since the beginning. The flesh tells you the opposite of what My Spirit tells you, and the acid test & the crunch of faith is, who are you going to believe more, Me or your own flesh? I'm the Opposite of all that the flesh tells you. Sometimes the way I see things is the exact opposite of the way you see them. What you call a blessing, I call a curse many times, and what you call a curse, I see as a blessing. "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8,9) You can't do it in the flesh. While the flesh is busy thinking up ways to save itself, it makes it very hard for you to create a deep connection with Me, because I am the opposite of all its attempts. I am its enemy. That's why the Bible says that the natural man is at enmity with God. The natural man doesn't want to trust Me but in himself. That's why he can't love Me. I'm opposing his attempts to save himself. Don't let any dust settle in your life! Don't accumulate, but keep going, keep moving, keep burning! You keep burning energy, you keep spending yourself... that's what it means to live. To stagnate is the opposite: corrosion, lack of movement, gaining weight, clinging to the old. The newness of constant change is what will keep you alive. To be a follower, a disciple of Mine, means going in the opposite direction of where the world is going and the flesh would lead you. Instead of letting them drag you along with their current, you go the opposite way. Faith disregards all the philosophies of man and their counsel on how to make headway, it discards all that the world advertises as wisdom and their secrets to "success" and chooses to go the opposite way, one that apparently leads nowhere, down to the most undesirable place of the defeat and death of that which the System is trying to build up: the ego, the self, one's own position and advantage... Faith is knowing it anyway: knowing that I mean well, that I know best, that I choose and only allow what’s good and best for you, even if your interpretation of your circumstances and your feelings may tell you something different or the downright opposite. Faith is the lone believer in that lonely voice out there that preaches the opposite of what the large majority preaches. It is the lone believer in the rare voice of truth, the one single proclaimer of what the large majority would never have the audacity or courage to embrace There may be a sea of voices telling you one thing, constantly repeating it, like some mantra they’re obsessed with, but faith knows anyway that the opposite is true. I like whatever is the opposite of conservative and stagnant. I like the alive and moving. The flesh always tends to become stuck in a rut sooner or later. It may think it’s immortal, but inevitably and unstoppably moves toward the proof of the opposite, and that it’s only the spirit that brings life. If you judge everything by the criteria of false and true, you’ll see that there is quite a gap between My ways and those the cohorts of the Enemy avail themselves of, which make the two parties quite distinguishable from each other. Their way is theirs and Mine is Mine, and never the twain shall meet. I will let them see where their path will have led them. And you’ll be glad then that you chose the opposite way.

…Opposition & Adversity If there wouldn’t be any opposition, there would be no challenge. You’ve got to have some kind of contrast against which you can see the light. It works like this in many other aspects of creation. Adversity is what makes you strong.

There’s a storm of opposition from the enemy and even those, of whom you don’t know exactly whether they’re friend or foe - time will tell – but all those things will just serve to strengthen you. The price of true godliness is persecution, ridicule, rejection, opposition and adversity. I like to pride Myself in all the things Mydisciples accomplish in spite of opposition, suppression and all attempts to shut up and stomp out the truth. Conviction is all about knowing that you’re doing the right thing in the face of opposition and in spite of many voices who may think to know better than you. That is the school of character that has shaped just about every significant man and woman of God: That very lack of support, that being forced to walk alone just with Me and Me alone on their side, against the opposition, is precisely where their inner strength comes from that makes them rise above the status quo. Leaders are always envied, resisted, rebelled against, rejected, opposed & fought against by some people some of the time, but that's exactly the kind of adversities that make a character strong. You can't just let the Enemy have the world & passively stand by as he wrecks it. You've got to do something about it! You've got to counteract, you've got to oppose him. Otherwise, if you don't oppose him, it's almost as if you're siding with him. You've got to oppose the Enemy in order to really be on My side. There will always be those who oppose, resist and reject you and all you have to give, just as they rejected the prophets and Myself, and nearly each and every one of My true apostles throughout history. It's tough when those who oppose and slander you are from among your own, but that's the kind of treatment and treason I experienced, and if I did, haven't I promised that you would experience the same? Of course, it's sad when there's war between brethren, but as you can tell from history, it's what the Devil has been up to since the beginning. There will always be repetitions of the story of the fate of Abel and Cain, in different forms, as long as the Devil is around... It’s no great art or feat to love those who love you. The proof of the pudding, how much you’re really capable of love, comes especially when it’s down to loving those who don’t love you, but seem to oppose and reject you. Loving those requires a skill in the art of loving that not everyone is master of, and it requires the supernatural, superhuman type of love that only I can give and teach and equip you with. Training yourself in the art of loving in the face of hatred, rejection and lack of love will also sharpen your skills and abilities to deal with unloving behavior on behalf of your loved ones, and instead of going on the defensive right away and withdrawing and reacting negatively and allowing their lack of love to produce more lack of love in you for them, you can learn to counter that natural process and stop the chain reaction and vicious cycle, and allow love to continue and go on, in spite of the adverse circumstances. Adversity is making you more profound, it opens your eyes to where you can see through the Devil's lies. Isn't it worth it? I must allow adversity in order to keep that vacuum alive inside you, that urge to seek Me or else you know you're not going to make it through the day! It takes perseverance to change the world, not letting adversity discourage you & turn you away at the first show of resistance. Adversity is what makes you strong. You want to have power over unclean and evil spirits? It's these fighting experiences that give you the power you seek. For although it is I Who give you the power, I give it to you by way of applying the little power you already have and finding out that it's not quite enough, that you need to come back to Me for more; that you've got to keep on training, fighting, hanging on... How do you manage to bring love where there is hatred, to bring light where there is darkness, joy, where there is sadness? You cannot do this unless you even refuse to look at the hatred, the darkness, the sadness, or their causes, to begin with. You refuse to see the adverse circumstance as such, but only as an occasion to put My power to the test. You rejoice in the adversity, because it has brought you a new challenge to prove to the universe that I am greater than any circumstance! Once you truly love, you eventually get to the point where you accept and welcome hardship and adversity, and embrace them as friends who will make you stronger on your path. In creating a spiritual diamond, jewel or gem when someone is “becoming gold” in spiritual aspects, every little lesson involved in that process is important. The degrees of pressure and “heat” have got to be just right, the amount of adversity you experience, before you can be taken out of the fire again to be cooled by My fresh pure waters.

What else does it mean to be an overcomer, but to rise above adverse circumstances? The greater the adversity, the greater the victory! The extent to which you’re learning to trust Me calmly now in the face of adversity and loss will determine how well you’ll be faring then, when adversity and loss will reach unprecedented proportions. If you do things right the devil will fight you, & he'll fight you the hardest in the beginning stages, so that he can convince you to quit before you can even get started... The devil will fight you all the more, the closer you come to My perfect will for you, the more you threaten to really accomplish for My Kingdom.

…Persecution “All who will live godly” in Me shall suffer persecution. Persecution is an integral part of the revolutionary Christian’s life, and remembering that will help you to stay awake spiritually. Persecution and judgment have always hit most of My followers by surprise, but I want you to be prepared. (I:311) The Early church in Jerusalem didn't get the point and obeyed My commandment to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature until the persecution came. That's why persecution is ultimately good for you. For one thing, it weeds out those who are only in it for the wrong reasons, who are in it because it's the comfy little rut they've been in most of their lives. It also draws you closer to others, as you're forced to cling to them for shelter. (II:345) I never made a secret of the fact that you were going to run into more difficult situations than I did. I never made a secret of the fact that the servant isn't higher than the master, if they have persecuted Me, they would also - even more certainly persecute you. (II:367) The disciples suffered persecution! But they did the job I gave them to do, regardless of it! How ready are you to do My job for you? (II:487) Persecution is often an instrument in My hands which I use to make My own church white and to purify. (II:541) Better to be persecuted and live with little, than to be one of the persecutors dwelling in material surplus. (II:589) You know from My Word that eventually they'll start hounding and persecuting you, so you can't live as if your life and destiny was meant to be one of perpetual peace with the System. (III:136) It's turning out that the persecuted church is definitely healthier, spiritually. (III:366) I got into trouble mostly everywhere I went, and it all resulted in over 300 years of persecution of My church, resulting in hundreds of thousands of them dying martyrs’ deaths. Only when the tides turned and Rome became officially “Christian,” that popularity spiel took over, and the church ceased from being the persecuted and became the persecutors in many cases… (III:412) The enemy and his host’s influence from the spirit world will stop when they’re all coming down to Earth, and you won’t have to fight and resist their invisible influence anymore… just having to rassel quite hard against their physical persecution, for which you’ll be dependent on Our miraculous Help from Above to survive it. (15:235) Get prepared to make it through the roughest and toughest time for believers through world history! I want them to make it through that, in spite of the roughest and worldwide persecution in history. I want them to be there when I’ll come to pick’em up! (2016:107) The folks the enemy hates the most and will persecute the most will be the ones who are able to hear from Me. In other words: the bunch he can’t kid with his lies, which are his ultimate weapon… not useful against those who’ve got a link with Me for the Truth instead. (2016:128) Through the global brainwash – or rather brain-besmirching – you can tell that it’s the large majority trapped in and confined to the Big Lie… and ultimate persecution of representatives of the truth will be the Endtime’s result of it. (2016:149)

Focus on the job I’ve given My followers to spread My Word and message to folks, even during circumstances and conditions where the majority of the crowds are absolutely not in a receptive state or condition for it, followed by worldwide persecution with our enemy at the reigns! (2016:168) The Roman persecution of My early church was just an example of the ultimate persecution of My folks through the AC when Satan will run and rule this world for its last and most troublesome 3½ years, 42 months or 1260 days. (17:33) If My apostles were persecuted, you’ve got to get ready for My church’s greatest persecution of history, too! The Roman persecution was just an example of what it will be like during our enemy’s ultimate reign… this time over the entire globe. (17:40)

The enemy will make the closest thing to hell out of the planet that he’ll ever achieve, and with the global persecution of My true believers, it’ll be the toughest phase of history. (17:43) There’ll be worldwide persecution, and it’s hard to see it possible to make it through such a thing nowadays with modern technology, except through the greatest miracles of history. (17:80) Another reason for impending judgment: Cleansing those who claim to believe in and follow Me to make out of them more of what they’re supposed to be… even if it will take worldwide persecution in order to get there. (17:124) When it comes to surviving the worldwide persecution of My followers the enemy will set in gear after his physical takeover of what will then be the obvious antichrist, it will be the greatest era of necessities for miracles of history. (17:130) Getting ready for Satan’s reign down there is a big task, especially for one of the many he’ll try to eradicate completely from the face of the Earth with the greatest persecution ever. (17:141) Ready to be an exception? Even if it will mean suffering persecution from the temporal “lord of the world?” (17:143)

…Perspectives, Perception (Opinions & Viewpoints) In order to truly understand some things, one has to be willing and able to see them from an objective angle, not only from one's own subjective point of view. No matter how convinced anybody may be of that they're right and that they're the one being wronged, there's always another point of view, another aspect and angle to look at it. (II:212) That saying "You're really three people, the one you see, the one others see, and the one God knows you to be," also applies to situations: you may see it from your point of view, the other sees it from theirs, but only I see the whole "elephant." The biggest mistake you can possibly make is to assume that your view and Mine are always identical. So, why not ask Me to show you the other sides of the elephant before you're going to open your mouth? That's what putting yourself in others' shoes means: come and see the elephant from their angle. And one by one, if you come over to their side and touch and feel what they do, you're going to get a picture that coincides a lot more with Mine than your original view, which you were convinced was the only right one... Maybe what's wrong is not so much the other person's "wrongness" or lack of whatever, but just your own present angle and point of view of things. There’s a lot of viewpoints to share and angles from which to see things... (II:538) My eternal and spiritual viewpoint is generally more negatively inclined toward the Systems of this world. It takes willingness and courage to face certain ugly facts about the world and yourself in order to embrace My truly positive viewpoint. And whereas the materialistic viewpoint is more positively inclined toward the System and the world as it is, it is in reality the more negative view, because it depreciates Me. While at first glance your view seems to be more negative, more serious, more down-slanted than that of the materialist, it really isn't, because your view is positive toward the true and Real Things in life that really matter; your view is positively inclined toward Me. (II:539) If everyone would just allow Me to change them, and work on the beam in their own eyes (you see that it's all a matter of seeing?), then a lot of "splinters" you previously saw in your brothers' eyes would all of a sudden not even really be there anymore... Or if they would, you'd find it so much easier to help that brother remove it by your own sample of having let Me freed you from your own beam, your own renewed perception of things. (II:623)

I want you to get a broader spectrum of things in general, not the uni-directional way of looking at things, the way a horse with blinkers would. Expand your horizon and circumference and look around you in a full 360 degree circle! There's more to perceive than just the path ahead of you, more than just your own crown and reward, your own personal goal. (III:63) Insisting that your own personal view of things is the only right one is like insisting you're God, and everyone else's opinion doesn't matter. And that is, unfortunately, what many people do: they put themselves first, ignore the needs of others, and basically play God. But usually something happens somewhere along the line that causes them to realize that it's a fairly solitary and frustrating game, that it's a lot easier and better in the long run to agree with people with different views at times. (III:81) Love makes an effort to see the other - the totally other side! It expands its view way beyond one’s own limited personal view of things and is ready to deal with what's totally different, even opposite of what you've known all along. True Love will never just let you stay in your own little world, stagnating in your old view. It's so much greater than anything that men could pin down and define with their finite minds, and it's definitely so much greater than some of man's limited perceptions of It. (III:83) Opinions are not what leads to the path of life, but the things I personally show each one to do. Are you just going to watch the sheep go astray, simply because they're so full of their own opinions and you don't want to cross them, and don't like the confrontation of having to disagree with them? (III:197) There are still new factors to explore, things you neglected to be realized, yet new angles and viewpoints to see things from. (III:202) You’ve got to determine that you're not going to let the enemy influence you with his illusions; you've got to refuse to allow him to taint your perception of things. (III:344) Try to get a view from My perspective! True maturity is all about letting go of your own biased view and swap it for a new one, the view of the One you trust simply knows better than you. (III:436) A love that’s real is so much more than a feeling. It creates a whole new way of being in you, of doing things, of seeing things, and a new way of thinking and perception. (III:438) If you show that anyone’s opinion of you matters more to you than My opinion, it proves that I am not Who or what matters most to you, but that you have other gods before Me, which, as you know, I simply cannot tolerate. (III:446) Discarding own opinions in favor of new and better ones or stubbornly cling to the own is an acid test all have had to go through, and always makes the difference between the Jacobs and Esaus, the Cains and Abels, the Davids and Sauls. It’s the acid test of whether you’re just going to cling to your own little personal truth and dogma, or you are willing to let it go for a greater one, a truer and more real one. (III:469) You cannot dictate your own experiences, nor views, on others. Be open for them to make their own experiences! (III:564) If you remember that all you have is what you’re being given by Me, you can view all things from a different viewpoint. (III:583)

From a temporal viewpoint it may not make much sense what you’re doing, but that’s what faith is all about: putting your cards and your “money” not on the same old things everybody else can see, and what they consider to be “common sense,” but rather that which requires some “uncommon sense,” a vision for things not everybody else can see… (IV:11) Most folks aren’t aware of the extent to which the enemy is in charge of their realm, influencing their perception of things, in fact, controlling it via his educational system and the media. As vague as your perception of My Kingdom may be for you, I want to prove that it’s still a lot more reliable, more lasting and safer ground to put your feet on, than that concoction they label “reality” at present, upheld by their feverish efforts to churn out tomes and tomes of information about it, most of which simply happen to be fundamentally flawed by the very fact that they’re leaving out of the equation the principal Factor. (IV:90) Come to Me and let Me revamp your concepts, your perception and your vision and focus for the day! (IV:121) Notions of distance from Me are always most likely to occur due to the position of your own heart, and your own personal perception of the situation. (IV:173) A lot depends on your attitude, your faith and your whole concept and perception of life, your input, and on whether you have a positive or negative outlook on things; all factors that determine whether the life you live is more like Heaven or hell. (IV:199)

Everybody is fairly quickly concerned when they perceive that they are getting less than what they think they deserve or should be getting, but sometimes it turns out that they’re having to go through a particular situation because they were not concerned enough about their part, and that they have to suffer because they could be giving more… (IV:242) With people having put their egos above any deity, thus having given themselves the rank of “gods” in their own minds (as Satan had promised), what they consider the only “gospel,” as far as they are concerned, is their own opinion. (IV:278) As bleak as your situation may get or seem to you, I always manage to cast sufficient light on it in order to totally change your outlook and your perception of it. (IV:282) in My eyes those are more blessed who lack and hunger, and who aren’t so satisfied with the state of the world around them. It’s a more realistic point of view, and one that coincides more with the general state of affairs, not just one man’s or family’s or group’s immediate situation, largely ignoring the plight of the poor elsewhere. (IV:492) You’d like to receive more specific instructions that you could relate to with your rational mind, but I want you to play it by ear. I want you to learn a different form of hearing, even a different form of thinking, of perceiving… (11:23) If you can look success and failure in the eye and determine that both are nothing more than entities of perception, and you can still laugh and smile either way, then you’ll have learned to fully bear the consequences of your own actions without relying on any ace up your sleeve that may or may not be there. (11:83) From My point of view, daring to venture out into the unknown, breaking away from the same old rut everybody else is trotting down, and doing something different than the norm, even if it doesn’t show any of the officially recognized “fruits” of success, is a much greater way to go. (11:117) Things change as you grow older, don’t they? Your views and perceptions of them do for sure. What used to be tough to remember from your previous views has turned into something you’d almost consider a blessing… (16:26) Just as life is supposed to go beyond the limited and timely limited perception of it on Earth, according to Our heavenly perception or version of it, so it is with what you consider visible… basically just as limited in physical terms as the earthly perception of life! – And the same applies to the other senses of perception. Something better’s expecting you, not just as far as the world around you is concerned, but also yourself and the other future inhabitants! – Something to look forward to! So, think about it: just because you can’t perceive much of the spiritual world with your still physical senses and perception right now, does that mean it makes the Spirit less valuable? If you’re going through hard and cold times down there, they should make you appreciate and look forward at what’s to come for those who have chosen to believe in and receive Me as their Savior. (16:34) That’s what it means to put all things into the proper perspective: the focus of love! (16:45) Positiveness is simply necessary in order not to let the negative outlook overrule everything – your attitude and perception of things. (16:49) The advantage of your relation with Us over the degree to which you can depend on the facilities and abilities of your own human kind is another perspective of why it pays to prepare for better relationships to come. – Heavenly relationships. (16:83)

If it makes you feel less at home in that world, what you’re going through, take it as an advantage from My point of view! (16:105)

To see the Light in spite of the darkness surrounding you means availing yourself of a spiritual viewpoint. (16:141) The times are coming when faith absolutely won’t be able to exist anymore based on physical conditions, but only through what’s perceived through faith and spiritual sight. (16:155) Making what’s going on Up Here happening and working inside you is so much more important than just letting affect you what’s going on around you. It’s lifting your antenna up to heavenly reception, except just perceiving what’s going on around you down there. (16:188) Heaven’s got to come closer to you and become part of your spiritual perception in order to make it though the dark times expecting the world. (16:195) Getting used to a more realistic viewpoint may be painful and take a hard time to get used to and learn to deal with, but with reality about to turn darker temporarily, just see it as good preparation for what’s coming! (16:199) Put Me and My will firs
