The Gift of Joy

The * most gift that was emphasized by the God/Creator was the gift of joy. There is not one soul built that is not to know less than one hundred percent perfect joy, and yet, why do we not? It is simply because we become so wrapped up again in the ego of self that the self becomes lost in the greed and avarice for everyday mundane happenings and material possessions. And when this occurs, the focus changes from the joy that should lie in thy heart, to the greed and avarice that is all about thee. Thee has never learned to say, “go away”, to the greed and the avarice and the ego.

Simply to overcome this, begin to say out loud to the God Conscious every day, “I accept all abundance including the rich grace of Your oils that bring me love, that bring me joy, that bring me everlasting peace.” And then, in that respect, thee will begin to know heaven right here on Earth, for thee will see the joy and beauty of the Earth. And thee will not see much of the penny-pinching and the worry that goes on and the need for this.

I learned this lesson well when I was attempting to build my church in Crete. The church in Crete was built with little in the way of money, but it was built greatly in the contributions of the people. For here were those that offered to cut the rocks, offered to put them together, offered to make the stone pews, the stone openings, the stone stairs, and even created the stones for the roof so that there would be no wetness occurring on the parishioners. I held many masses in that church. And in these masses there were nine apostles appointed to be my helpers. And of these apostles, they are also with me now. And upon occasion when I cannot answer a question, I will ask one of them. For as in all things, their expertise are different in different areas of what is occurring upon the Earth and what is occurring out of the heaven worlds itself.
