Direction For Our Times
Jesus Christ, The Returning King
We continue our cycle of monthly messages for 2018 with the message from August 1, 2010 for our prayer groups and personal reflection.
August 1, 2010
“Be at peace in your work, dear apostles. Neither hurry, nor delay. Do not pause in your service to Heaven, wherever that service has taken you. We move at a steady pace if we are together. If you are working without me, you may find yourself either hurrying or delaying. I do not hurry and I do not delay. Test yourself today. Determine your pace. If it is steady and you are calm, all is well. If your pace is hurried, and you are not calm, perhaps you have forgotten that it is my work you are doing, and not your own. If you have stopped working for Heaven, because you are sad, frustrated or discouraged, then that is a sign that you need me to renew you and restore your confidence in our togetherness. I speak to you of abandonment and I ask you to regard the outcome of your service as irrelevant in that you are not in control of the fruits of your day. Most days, you will not see the fruits. Most days, you will not be able to understand the fruits. This is because my beloved friends have a limited understanding of Heaven’s power and Heaven’s patience. If Heaven has a goal to accomplish, we begin preparing early. Much of your service, my dear apostles, will be that of sowing seeds for future conversions. Dearest apostles, so close to me, can you accept this? Will you trust me? Many people contribute to the construction of a building on earth. Think of all that happens before the building is erected. All of the materials must be created and fashioned and then assembled and there must be a plan. The people producing the materials may never see the building that is erected through their cooperation. It is this way with the Kingdom of God. There are many hands at work in this world assembling materials for the construction of the edifice that the Father has willed for his Church on earth at this time. You are my diligent workers who cheerfully stand forward to serve the King. I thank you, dear friends. I urge you to trust, to patience and to lively participation in this plan, wherever I have placed you. Rejoice! Show others the happiness that comes with knowing you are loved and protected.”
