* Sharmon (Jonathan TR): Greetings to everyone, this is
Sharmon. You are truly my coworkers in this project of
It had been announced that you will receive additional
assistance by way of a Son in the function of a Magisterial
mission. You have welcomed this occurrence and relish the
opportunity to assist, and you are undoubtedly enlisted with our
supervisors as loyal, dedicated, and prepared missionaries of
service. I applaud your eagerness and your readiness. The time
awaits for engagement.
You I encourage to further deepen your abilities to contact
the divine source present within you, for this is your source of
transformative energy that will allow you to function along side
the Magisterial Son with strength and assurance. We midwayers
have witnessed many events wherein human beings in association
with celestial personalities falter through doubt because of the
keen sense of differentiation between a visiting personality and
one who feels so mortal. While you have great faith and are
truly in love with your divine Parent, it is essential that you
increase your conscious connection, for this will strengthen you
beyond any sense of lack of worth as an enlisted agent in this
Deep in your soul is an island of peace and a fountain of
joy. This is the presence of Father; it is the dwelling place
of the Almighty. You are blessed with this divine gift. It is
your eternal foundation. You have no other place to go but to
Him who is within. Here you find everything; here you are
transformed from a mere animal being into a citizen of divine
standing with God. Upon this foundation you are assured of your
ability to represent the Father to the world. Your frailties as
a human being will disperse like chaff in the wind as you dwell
continually in association with the inner spirit. Then, upon
your first beholding of this visitor Son, you will feel a
belonging and no need for introduction, for you will recognize
the familiarity of your common Father and your associated
brotherhood, even though this Magisterial Son will be so
majestic to your view.
We midwayers welcome this event and are excited to have you
along with us and consciously on our team. Keep up the good
work, my fellows. Thank you.
* Elyon: This is Elyon, I greet you as well. I thank our
midwayer friend for his address today. It is my hope that this
message will impress you more fully because of the proximity of
being that this midwayer has with you, your so-close cousin.
I want to speak some more on faith and its strength. Each
of you has faith; I witness it. It is an enduring faith; it
cannot be killed. Faith is often perceived as a single
attribute when in reality it is more like, if I may use a
metaphor, it is like grass. It spreads and sprouts continually
all over. It works its way into the cracks of difficult life
situations to emerge to take in the divine sunlight. It will
hibernate when the storms of life cover you over, only to burst
forth again in renewed vigor. Evil may attempt to uproot your
faith, but you regenerate once again. Your faith may falter in
one episode of life, in one event, and flourish in another.
Though an outward appearance of a slip of faith may seem to put
you down, it is only the blade that is trimmed and not the root.
Your faith reasserts itself at every opportunity, independent of
circumstance and applied to all situations. Faith is the most
powerful tool to your spiritual advancement.
You, my friends, I have witnessed over this decade and more
have become a virtual lawn, thick with faith, robust. I am
proud of my students. I have the utmost confidence in you. If
you are desirous of asking me a question, I welcome it now.
Mark T.: What is your personal definition of faith?
* Elyon: Faith is willful directionalization. It is the
assertion of personality. It is two directional: One way is
toward the Father/Source for deeper connection, for that divine
embrace. The other direction is the faith/force of conviction
of having resided with the Father. One applies this association
to any life circumstance.
Faith is spiritual movement, and while associated with
systems of theology and supported by history of experience, it
is a form of conviction beyond the mind. It is the activation
When the human being seeks faith, that search soon is
transformed into a search for God. Faith is not found; faith
becomes as that search begins. When God is found, there one
beholds ones faith.
I hope this helps.
Mark: Yes, beautiful, thank you.
Evelyn: We have a conference coming up that will involve
more than just the Teaching Mission, including the larger
Urantia community. I wonder if you have any comments about that
conference, our activities, attitudes, anything like that.
* Elyon: I am delighted that you have created the
circumstances wherein so many of your kinfolk who all cherish
the revelation of The Urantia Papers to gather and celebrate.
We teachers, as you have been told many times at other events,
will be in abundance.
Let your commonality, your community, draw you all closer to
one another. Let the spiritual energy flow over diversity of
belief. This attempt to heal a rift within this large
fellowship will be most successful as you all recognize your
oneness in spirit, your sincerity. Your techniques are all that
create your differences.
Be one who represents spirit before another who represents
spirit. Let not your methodology divide you. Welcome one
anothers sincere approach to spirit communication, to spiritual
insight and guidance, for whether you have been working with us
teachers or not, each individual relishes the opportunity to
receive guidance from spirit. This I ask you to amplify, and to
respect and honor each ones approach, the method they find most
I thank you all for lending your ears to us today. May the
Father, the Son, and the Spirits intricate spiritual sprinkler
system ever water your faith and bring lush growth to you. I
take my leave, farewell.
