OCTOBER 3, 1999

I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I am so appreciative of your conversation on this
lesson. It is helping me to minister to one of my students who is learning
to drink the cup with grace.

My student and friend was a hard working, loyal, and dedicated employee. He
was a wonderful and thoughtful father. He was a loving and caring husband.
He almost never missed church service on Sunday. He embraced Father's high
ideals and did his utmost to live by them.

Approximately one year ago he was diagnosed with a fatal form of cancer. The
surgery did little good. The months of chemotherapy and radiation only
prolonged his agonizing pain. He is now most definitely financially ruined.
It would appear all that he had worked for was in vain. He most certainly
worried about his family's well-being. It has been quite a strain on them.

His physical pain has literally put him at the brink of insanity. At first
he asked, "Father, how could this have happened? Was I not a loyal son? Why
would you punish me in this way?" His physical pain had made him to scream
in anger at Father, and make either promises or threats to Him in exchange
for painlessness.

My friends wife also wonders at their plight. Her endless hours of
care-taking wear on her mentally, emotionally and physically. The children
also are bound in fear and unknowing at their father's pain. The emotions
pour uncontrollably as they come to terms with their situation. Mental
acceptance is setting in, and yet this is still not enough. There is still
such restlessness. Should this man not move into a higher mindedness will be
cheated out of a grand spiritual advancement.

Yes, he is now within the realms of reason. He is asking God for logical
answers. Father is not punishing him. No. This is the results of an
imperfect time period in history. This is a part of life in which many must
experience. Should he die embittered, should his family live with the
regrets that their loved one's death was just one of life's hard knocks? No.

The family has united in a spiritual quest for value and meanings. The man
is grateful in every living moment. He imparts his wisdom to his children.
He teaches them of the life beyond this life. He bestows upon them his faith
and enables them to be participating in life as well as death. He empowers
his family to take value from this experience and minister to others.

My friend has made a great deal of friends in this community. He can teach
and show his faith in Father's abilities to provide the glory and victory
over all things, even death. He can look at others with illnesses and know
their thoughts, understand their plight. He can touch the lives of those who
are hopeless because he understands hopelessness. He can teach endurance for
he has endured great pain. He can exemplify patience for he has been made to

This mans sensory awareness has increased manyfold, for he knows his days
are running out and lives each moment to the fullest. He has learned within
one year what it might take others a lifetime to learn. He has seen the
victory in his adversity. He has watched Father bring value out in

Even in his pain there is a process of finding and accepting the Father's
will. He can blame Father. He can be angry at Father, but in all this Father
patiently awaits the passing of these random emotions to the stage of reason
when He can be by the side of His children and provide love, comfort,

My student, friends wife and children are now being encouraged by their
loved one's brave example to carry on. They can go forth to find reason,
meaning and be comforted by the fact that this terrible plight was all made
to work for the glory of God and the overall good of everyone involved.

Jesus did understand this experience to its fullness. In His mortal state He
had to allow the Adjuster to sustain Him for a period. In these moments of
pain there is naught else to do except reinforce your faith by prayer,
worship and being observant.

As our time draws to a close I would ask that you put into writing a prayer,
letter of sorts to my friend\student who will shortly be leaving this mortal
state. What have you learned from him? How can you also utilize his
experience to help others. My love goes with you. Until next week, shalom.
