The Message and the Messenger
"It is of the greatest importance that you realize that the Message is always greater than the Messenger, that you cannot simply align yourself with the Messenger and neglect your responsibilities as a student of the Revelation and all that it will provide, and all that it will direct you to do, and all of the clarification it will bring into your life and activities."
"It is important for you to know that the Message and the Messenger must be assisted and supported. He is bringing a New Revelation to humanity, but there are very few who are aware of his existence. There is a small group of people who have been called to assist him in his great mission here. But he will need the assistance of many more people now. He will need their support."
The witnesses to the Message and the Messenger
"Let there be many witnesses to the Message and the Messenger. Let there be many who can respond and receive the gift of preparation and bring it into their life with real determination and compassion."
"To recognize the Message and the Messenger is the most natural thing unless your mind is so conditioned, so jaded and preoccupied, so defensive that you cannot see, you cannot hear, you cannot know that God has spoken again."
"There will be criticisms and judgments that the Message and the Messenger do not fit people’s expectations. Who will speak to this? The Message and the Messenger require many witnesses. They require a great expression of recognition and purpose. And for those for whom this is their destiny, it is the most important thing in their whole life. When they leave this world and return to their Spiritual Family, they will be asked, 'Did you speak for the Messenger? Did you recognize the Messenger? Did you support the Messenger?'"
"Who will speak for the Revelation when the challenges come? Who will speak when there is a backlash against the Message and the Messenger, and those who seem so respectable and august in society condemn the one chosen to bring God’s Revelation into the world?"
"It is what is in him and with him, his origin and his destiny, that set him in such a unique and important position. But to see this, one would have to recognize something, and hear his proclamation and receive the Revelation that is his to bring into the world. Only then, perhaps, could they begin to understand the burden of the Messenger and the journey of the Messenger. This could only be comprehended if they shared this journey, if they understood this journey from their own direct experience of the Message and the Messenger."
The vulnerability of the Message and the Messenger
"Both will be vulnerable to human corruption, human misunderstanding and all the grievances and ignorance and aggression that exist in the world today."
The betrayal of the Message and the Messenger
"The one who will betray the Messenger will come from the ranks of his supporters. The disaffected or failed student, rather than taking responsibility for their own difficulties and limitations, will seek to deny or diminish the Message and the Messenger. This always happens at times of Revelation. You will see this happening."
"Think of those who failed to respond in the time of great Messengers in the past. What were they thinking? How could it be they could not see what was before them? How could it be they could not recognize the one who brought to them the promise of a greater life? How could it be that they would stand by and allow the Message and the Messenger to be denigrated?"
How people respond to the Message and the Messenger
"There is one Message and one Messenger. But people do not want to hear this because it means they must do something. They must face something. And ultimately they must change their lives, particularly if they want God to help them. For if you want God to help you, you really have to change your life. So the Message and the Messenger then become agents of great change in the world, and for those who profit from the way things are at this moment, it will seem threatening and unsettling. And they will be disposed to try to rid themselves of it, or demean it at least, or destroy it if they can. For those who have a greater and more legitimate need in their life, they perhaps can see this as a redemption, as an empowerment, which it truly is. How people respond to God speaking again to the world and sending a Messenger into the world is the great question and the great unknown. Even the Angelic Host does not know how this will turn out."
