Subject: “Caring for the Elderly.”
Received by Chris.
Ophelius: “Today’s lesson is on caring for the elderly.  It is the duty of all faith sons and daughters as believers in the Kingdom to minister to the elderly, and to prepare them for afterlife on the mansion worlds.  Those who know these truths must communicate to these frail and fearful souls who are near the doorstep of eternity, and who may have no idea of what will await them upon their resurrection.  Too often do we avoid the subject of death and what lies ahead, because we, ourselves, have been so ill prepared by the orthodoxy of religion on this planet.  If these patriarchs of humanity had even the vaguest – the most remote -- idea of the process and the conditions of afterlife, it would make a tremendous difference in their transition by the elimination of much confusion and fear.  Having a little knowledge of the grand adventure would make death something to look forward to, rather than some great unknown to dread.
“This is not an easy thing to talk about with elderly folks who are very set in their ways, and especially when you yourself have no firsthand knowledge of mansion world life and the process of crossing over.  You can however, use the knowledge and descriptions given in your Urantia Book to seed the minds of these souls -- to tell them of the loved ones that will be waiting to greet them in the resurrection halls of Mansonia -- of the great peace and beauty of the realms of light and the glorified bodies that they will have that are free from all infirmity.  Tell them of the great opportunities that await them, the learning of anything they desire, and the chance to find God and to become perfect as He is perfect.
“Tell them to unload the burdens of guilt, regret, and the trespasses of others, for the past can not be undone.  Tell them to look boldly into the future and imagine the possibilities, the glory, and the love that awaits them.  Yes, they will listen to you, for they crave to hear these words, even if they outwardly evade such discussions.  They will want to know and to hear the good news.  Don’t wait until they are on their deathbed to tell them these things, tell them today, so they may think and distill these things into a comforting assurance of things to come.
“The telling of the Good News and the glories of the afterlife will help these souls progress despite the apparent crystallization of their beliefs.  Truth has a way of cutting through the density of the most veiled fears and taking root in the human heart where it will blossom and grow into new paradigms of faith, hope, courage, and love.
“Go boldly to the harvest my beloved,

are the noblest paths to higher consciousness.” – Teacher Ophelius, 2009.

Transcript # 2

Michigan, US of A, July 15, 2009.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Faith in Faith.
Received by Chris.
Ophelius: “Today’s message is about having ‘faith in faith.’  Sounds strange, does it not?  What does it mean to believe in faith? Faith is the never-waning trust and loyalty to a belief in the unseen, the untried, but the glorious outcome of events and future circumstances, for which the status and understanding of an individual is poised with great expectation and reward for following after the divine urge to love and to be loved.
“It is a hopeful desire for that ultimate approval from the paradise Father that welcomes us into His eternal family, and that He has prepared a place for us and a chance to know greater love than what we have ever experienced thus far in our living existence as a free-will creature of the Creator’s making.  It is the ‘knowing’ or instinct to return to that from which we have come -- to ‘metamorphosize’ the soul into a more perfect ideal of the Creator’s intent and the realization that we are truly, truly, a child of this all wise, all loving Father and Creator of all things.
“Imagine for a moment, my beloveds, and remember a time that you believe was the pinnacle of the highest feeling of love and acceptance you have ever experienced in your life.  Then multiply that feeling a trillion fold, and if you could imagine or appreciate such a vibration, then would you only know but a taste of what is possible when you stand before God in finality.
“It is this innate drive to find God, and to be like Him, that fuels the ‘faith to have faith.’  And so it is that God has a plan for us and that He makes a way that we can ‘evolve’ to a state of being that can eventually allow us to experience the intense light of His supreme outpouring of divine love.  For we cannot, in our imperfect state, stand the intensity of His perfect light and vibration.  It is His desire to bring us home to Him so that He can pour out this perfect love on us because He is our Father and we are His children.

Have ‘faith in faith,’ my beloveds, for the Father calls to us, ‘Come home my children, for this is where you belong.’
“Good day,
“The Circle of Seven.”
