I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I love our dialogue here this evening. Each ones outlook builds onto each individuals view of truth.

When our Master walked the earth He did need to build a strong and courageous character. His life's experience trained Him for His life's work. He could see as a child how adults complicated, twisted or bent the truth. He could see as a child He had not the authority to state the truth as He envisioned it. It was then true, and still is, that those of experience are somewhat of an authority with truth, where the young are not taken seriously. In all actuality more children are truthful than are adults.

The Master could be found giving a hard truth to an individual or depending on who He was talking to, gentle fragments of truth. The Master could draw out people and perceive the flavor of their personality and from that, He could give His truth. He recognized some individuals would only accept His words through straight hard truth, truth with passion and power. Some individuals, who were bound by ego, He was careful in how He put forth His words. He knew it did no good to force truth on those who would not have it.

Just as it is today, your universe caretakers give you truth in a manner that you will receive it best. Sometimes truth is best received through life's hard lessons and sometimes it is through small insignificant daily tasks. On the Master's lips was always this small prayer: "Father, your will, not mine, be done. Allow Me to be a vessel for your works." Jesus looked at truth as a ever-flowing current of energy, subject to transformations. Jesus told His truth as He perceived it from the Father. Through much time spent in devotion and stillness His communication with Father was instant and always accurate.

He could minister to His fellows through the eyes of Father in a manner that Father saw fit, not how He personally would perceive them. The Master could have defended Himself at the end of His mortal life with His truth, but He was more aligned with the Father's will, and if it would have caused spiritual progress, He would have spoken up. The Master could accept the hard truth of mortal life. This does not mean He felt no affects from it. Many times did the Master cry and reconcile with Himself with truth. While there was the mortal pain of truth--there was always a divine comforting explanation.

You have been called the ambassadors of truth and you have had opportunity to share, and you have done well. You are learning those techniques of the Master:

Number one--to draw an individual out and discover the nature of their character and how they will best receive the good news.

Number two--to rely upon that ever moving flow of Spirit direction and allowing Father to use you as a vessel for His works.

Number three--to learn to reconcile yourself with divine truth and be accepting of the hard lesson, but a hard lesson is also not always necessary for learning about truth.

It has been said that only the strong have the courage to speak the truth without fear of repercussion. Many fear sharing their truth, for they will possibly receive ridicule or loss of love or respect. They tiptoe around the truth as if they were protecting themselves. If the Master would have done this His life may have been prolonged, but the Master's love for Father and the desire to do His will, would not allow Him to protect Himself. He relied on Father to use Him in a way that would be best suited for the whole. Logic told the Master how to deliver His truth, but always He relied upon Father for the words.

Many historical books would describe the Master as meek. Many believe that to be meek is character weakness. Our definition of meek is to not be self-saving or self-serving, but to be more focused on, "How can I best serve?" In that definition the Master was meek, but in no way is He to be perceived as a gentle and holding back, afraid to hurt others, afraid to be seen as a mean person. He was the best example of a mortal who was empowered by those On High who would embrace truth and disperse it with wisdom. His life was certainly an example of true beauty. Beauty will be our topic for discussion next week. A few questions?

CALVIN: I gather, Abraham, you're trying to get us to understand how to lovingly disperse truth in a way that would be most effective to the hearer and use our logic to know how best to do that. That is all I guess.

ABRAHAM: Yes, Yes, my son, you are well experienced in this area. There is a goodness within the human soul that desires to save people from their own misguided thinking. There is not an allowance for the natural evolution of the mind to take place. In dispersing our truth the best we can hope for is to plant seeds. We can be available to tend to those seeds. We can answer questions and encourage, but we can't force those seeds to grow and you never know when someone may be planting seeds in your direction. We must always stay open to that flowing current of divine truth, yes. A question?

AZSURAY: Yes Abraham. I have just been served papers and excommunicated from the Mormon church because of my beliefs in contrary to theirs in the Urantia Book. I am very eager to put forth truth, but maybe with your wisdom and your understanding of me and know the depths of me, how I should handle this that would be pleasing unto the Lord? I know that is a difficult question. Sorry. I humbly ask you this.

ABRAHAM: Certainly. My daughter, you already know how to handle this. The Master, even in front of His accusers, would still hold a deep affection for them. He saw not their ignorance but their status as children of God--His brethren. He would not use this time to rebuke their ignorance, but if they would have had it, He would have lovingly ministered unto them. This event can be used to plant many seeds, but you must use wisdom and rely upon the words of God within. Sometimes it is just random life experience that leads you to one religion or another, one faith or another. Remember that everyone is acting from a place that they know best. You are a daughter of grace and I have faith in you to carry on with your highest light. Yes. Another question?

If there are no more questions we would remind you to study on the different aspects of truth and prepare yourselves for the upcoming lesson on beauty. As always my love goes with you. Until next week, shalom.
