[Rebecca is feeling much better now and we have resumed our weekly sessions with Ham. The following is short, but all agreed it was a gem]
Ham: Greetings, children, I am Ham and I am very happy to be here among you once more. This evening, let us give thanks for the miracle of faith for it is by faith that you persevere without knowing. It is through faith that you touch God and experience his presence.
Faith is the gateway by which man feels himself to be entering into a greater and more meaningful expanded existence. Faith is the hand which receives the bread of life. Faith is the mouth by which you imbibe spiritual water and the bread of truth. By faith, you abide in the body of God and he abides within you. Faith is the means by which your spirit is renewed. Hope is a first step, but faith is the means by which you are transported to a greater reality. Always let your faith be such that it shines before men and let your lives be a demonstration of your faith.
The master was ever faithful. He was joyful in his faith. He was absolutely certain that the Father’s will is the very best thing and his faith was such that he trusted the Father’s leading, even when his mortal mind recoiled. Let your faith raise you as the Master’s faith raised him. Have faith that the Father will lead you, that he will open those doors which you should pass through and close those through which you should not pass.
Give his love to those you come in contact with and shine that love all around you. Let love be your refuge and your protection. Discipline yourselves not to indulge in negative thinking. Accept each day as the wondrous gift it is. Dedicate your work to God and then rest when it is time to rest. Carry the Master’s burden with joy and with a light heart do his bidding.
It is written that weeping may persist for an evening, but joy comes again in the morning. Set your hearts to being joyous. Enjoy your existence. This is my desire for all of you and this is my message for all of you this evening. Seek after joy. Seek after a joyous life and shine forth in your faith so that all men will know you have an intimacy with Christ, you have accepted your sonship with God.
I do not wish to tire my faithful companion this evening. We shall resume questions next week. For now, may the Father’s peace be upon your hearts and may your souls continually deepen in love. Farewell.
