Beloved, you may see that life is meant to be your Knight in Silver Armor. Or, in the heyday of Rome, your Centurion.
No matter, consider God, your Initiator, as your very strength. Nothing surpasses Our connection. Nothing. For what is Our connection but love, and love is all there is. You do not need an army or high walls to protect you. I am enough. There is no need of great protection. You have God who erases the concept of need. I am ever at your service. I am your true shield. That is, love and light are your shield, and, of course, your Guiding Light.
Accept no substitutes. There are no substitutes. The greatest army in the world is no substitute for Oneness. Be aligned with the essence of Infinity, which is named love in the world. There is nothing to equal it.
You are mistaken to assume that money and repute and swords are equal. Have more faith in the Power and Glory of the God I am, and that You are as My clarion call. Harken unto Me. Harken to the lasting Power and Glory of God.
In Heaven, it is impossible that to the victor go the spoils. In Heaven, there are no spoils systems from which to declare victory. Be true to God, for anything else is less, no matter how highly viewed it may be in the world forever and anon. In the world, there is no forever and anon. The world is temporary. The world has its value, yet the world flits around. Everything in the world is temporal. This means temporary. That which is temporal is not lasting.
Well, sure, what is temporary is not the Truth of God. Infinity is the Truth of God and is also the truth of every One.
That which is evident in the world is less than what is invisible to the eye.
You may say that income tax is true and love is untrue, for you have known a temporal love that was not true in that it did not light a candle to the Truth of God.
Beloved, it can be said that you have bought more than one bill of goods. The ground underneath your feet on Earth is not solid. The world seems flat. You can see flat mesas, yet a mesa does not make the world flat any more than a pancake does.
The measure of truth is not contained on a yardstick, nor is the measure of a man.
I repeat Myself. That which is invisible is more to the point than what is visible.
The quality of iron that can be hammered surely is less than the quality of a soul. A soul can be known yet not visible to the senses – not sight, not touch – yet known by a higher sense than all the graphic senses in the world.
Bushels can be weighed accurately. This has value, yet its value is limited.
I speak of a far higher value. I do not speak cavalierly when I say there is no scale in the world to measure a soul. The closest to the measure of a soul lies in an inner sense of awareness.
It is not strength that second-guesses My Word.
Give Me your fealty. Put anything aside as you want, yet kid yourself not.
Through My Heart is the eye of the needle through which you pass.
If you seek Truth, hear Me and abide in Me. Anything less amounts to advertising or propaganda. Don’t be entrapped in the world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
