Ham: Greetings, children, I am Ham and I am
grateful to have you hear this evening. As
always, my gratitude extends to you. This
evening, let us discuss our Father’s love.

The Universal Father is resident on Paradise at
the center of all known creation. He is the first
source for all things and beings. He is the
upholder of an almost infinite creation. He is the
maker of all things seen and unseen. He is the
source and the destiny for all that is.

Our Father has also take up residence in your
hearts and within the realm of the mind. In this
he is a true father. You are not orphaned on a
tiny planet alone in the universe but rather,
surrounded by an unseen support system of
angels, midwayers, and dozens of orders of
beings who carry out the will of God upon the
worlds of time and space.

But more than this, the Father personally
experiences with you your lives. He is with you
through all your decisions, all your experience
acting always to steer the mind toward ever
higher spiritual levels of understanding and
integrating this spiritual understanding within
your personalities.

The Father sees every single being in his
creation as precious. So precious that he
himself watches over every step and every
misstep. Many philosophers through the ages
have postulated a first source that is remote
from his creation. A father is never unfeeling, he
is never remote.

When you as parents experience something
with your child – a first step, a first word – how
magical and fulfilling are those moments. The
Father dwelling within you experiences all, every
nuance of feeling, every determined action,
every joy and every sorrow. The Father then
experiences an even higher level of oneness
with his children than you as

human parents can imagine. But you can
imagine that his experience is full, complete,

Our Father acts and reacts through love. His
experience is based in love. He is love in your
experience. The Father is never jealous,
vengeful, punishment seeking, or judgmental.
The Father does not act as a bank account from
which you must deposit funds in order to
withdraw them. The Father acts through love.
He bestows himself upon you and as you turn
to accept that love you are turning toward all
that is real. The Father asks only that you
accept his love and in doing accept your place in
the universe.

It is said that the Father clothes his sons and
daughters in the robes of righteousness and it
is true that righteousness is the natural
flowering of the soul when it is fed by the
waters of love.

A child does nothing to deserve his status as
child. You are created as sons and daughters of
the living God. You have an eternal place in his
world. You are so precious that you will never
be lost or extinguished or forgotten for the
Father himself dwells within you pulling you
toward him like an earthly father embracing his
child. You cannot do anything to make
yourselves more deserving of this love. You
exist and you are loved. That is all.

You cannot earn a higher place in the Father’s
love for the Father loves all his children
infinitely, eternally, completely. What you can
grow in is the intelligent recognition of this love,
and as you give love to the Father in return
your very capacity for love is enlarged. A wise
child is grateful for the Father’s love. And in
that love, there is no requirement on either side
for more.

Knowing, as you do, that the Father’s spirit
dwells within you, knowing this great miracle
exists, you mus in turn continually turn toward
him to receive that love, to receive the divine
embrace, and to receive that perfect peace that
this knowledge eventually brings.

Imagine the Father’s rejoicing when first you
turn away from the pitiful diversions of selfish
pursuits and make that first gesture of turning
toward him. Each of you in your lives
understands that this has occurred at some
point. There was some time when all the wealth
of the world became as ashes in your hands
when you needed God and you turned to him. I
tell you now, that the heavens rejoiced and the
angels sang at that moment even though it
may have been a low point in your lives, it was
the high point of the Father’s indwelling

Eventually, you will rejoice in selflessness. The
pursuits of self will be forgotten as the pursuit
of greater value, grander morality, and enduring
truth take their place. Rejoice and be glad for
the way will be shown. The Father’s voice will
speak when you are doubtful and discouraged.

Be unafraid my children to put on the robes of
righteousness, to change your lives, to become
new in all ways as the Father renews you from
within. Are there any questions at this time?

Q: Yes, Ham, our new devotee from Memphis
Bob O has requested a message.

Ham: Yes, my son, you do very well. Be not
discouraged by the seeming ups and downs of
spiritual life. You are embarking now upon the
great adventure of existence and your
enthusiasm is wonderful to see. Be assured
that you will advance in the spirit as you are
prepared to receive the Father’s love with
humble gratitude asking nothing. Seek the
Master’s example. He was a man who evoked a
quiet, thoughtful, burning enthusiasm among
his fellows. Follow him and all is well.

Q: Ham do you have anything for me tonight?

Ham: Certainly, my dear, you are a person of
great sensitivity and a great capacity for love,
joy, and enthusiasm for life. Give your whole
being to the Father. Let him hold you and guide
you. Bear the fruits of the spirit in your life as
you have done. As you grow toward him,
discover what wonders there are within you,
what strength, what courage. Rest in an inner
peace that is certainly beginning to bloom.
Trust your truest feelings and be loyal to your
highest values and be happy. Realize that you
deserve it or rather put away the thoughts that
you don’t deserve it.

Q: Ham do you have any guidance for me

Ham: Yes, my son, of course. My son, you are
doing very well. You are a man of great moral
courage, someone who enlists upon the side of
righteousness without second thoughts or
nagging doubts. You make up your mind and
then act upon it. This is a great asset. You also
have an antenna for truth and your truth
seeking has been focused and courageous.
Above all, you have shown courage in your
ability to change that which does not serve you
and to embrace that which does. You are doing
very well. I am very happy to witness your great
progress over these past few years. Continue
to trust the Father completely, continue putting
your life in his hands for this is a great victory
in itself and will lead to greater victories in the

Q: Do you have anything for Rebecca?

Ham: Yes my dear, continue with great humility
to follow the Father’s leading. You are truly a
courageous battler for truth over error and
faith over doubt. But ever and anon, everyday
in fact, you must return with humility and
gratitude so that the Father may comfort you
and prepare you for the battles ahead.

Q: Jarad?

Ham: Certainly my son. Have great peace for
you have come far. The Father and the Master
both prepare you for the challenges which lie
ahead. Be careful not to expend energy fighting
battles that have not come. Rest in love and in
complete acceptance of the Father’s will. Let
this certainty of your acceptance strengthen
you and guide you as you serve the Father and
his children through your work. Go in peace my
son, for all is well and as it should be.

Q: Marije would like a personal message?

Ham: Yes my dear, the Father’s blessings are
truly flowing upon you. You are a beloved
daughter and your life is a great song to the
Father. Rest assured that you do carry out the
Father’s will in this life. The way ahead is filled
with love and life and song. Be at peace my
dear, all is well.

Q: Norbert would like a personal message?

Ham: Yes my son, you do well. As you grow
toward the Father expressing his love to his
children, you are becoming your real self in the
process. For some, the thought of God is
overwhelming, the thought of his love is
overwhelming, even frightening. But you have
seem no other way and can exist in no other
framework but that of the Father’s love. Be at
peace my son. You do very well.

Q: May I have a personal message please?

Ham: Certainly, my son. You are doing very well
in all things. Have no fear as you move forward
in embracing the Father’s love. Keep this
understanding in the very core of your being
and know that none can assail that perfect
peace given by God. You are also showing that
you are humbly accepting the Father’s ways and
the Father’s plan for you which is perfect. Be at
peace for you do well.

Q: Yes Ham, I have a specific question. Do we
have to have this war?

Ham: The adjustments that come on a planet
which is so far behind where it should be are
often painful and often bloody and violent. We
have projected that it could take as long as a
thousand years before this planet enters the
beginning of light and life and that would
require an end to warfare by that time.

Q: Would it require a planetary government?

Ham: By this you mean a human world
planetary government?

Q: Uh huh.

Ham: Yes. The great adjustment between the
western world and the Islamic world may take a
great deal of time and great many lives may be
sacrificed in the process. The cultural chasm
that exists between radical Islam which seeks
conversion by the sword and world domination
and modern liberal democracy will not be
bridged by diplomacy and good intentions
alone. Freedom of religion cannot perish from
the earth. Separation of church and state
cannot perish from the earth without ushering
in an extra thousand years of darkness before
your planet will be prepared for light and life. It
is our assessment that this cultural chasm will
only be obliterated by the ultimate survival of
one world view over the other. This is perhaps a
dose of cold reality but there it is.

Q: Do you have a personal message for Charlie

Ham: Certainly. My son, you do well. You have
worked on your own spiritual progress for many
years, careful to be self-examining . Relax
more, enjoy your life more, rejoice in your own
sonship more for life is fleeting. Enjoy the time
you are here my children. There is much that is
beautiful and true and good in this life. Find
these things, keep them precious for this entire
worldly experience is precious.

Q: Do you have feedback for me this week

Ham: Certainly. My son, you do well. You have
also been a diligent worker on your spiritual
progress and I say to you it need not be so
difficult. Embrace the joy of life, give thanks for
all that you have been blessed with and be at
peace with yourself for you are doing as you
have always done, the best of your ability. You
have never given less. So be at peace. Enjoy
this week.

Are there any further questions? My children,
you are all doing well. Be easy on yourselves.
Remember to give thanks for the Father’s love.
Give thanks for life, give thanks for all your
precious relationships and the richness of life
that these bring. As always, my love and my
prayers are with you each. Farewell.
