Does the Book of Revelation Mesh with Jesus’ Teachings?

Warning: My beliefs as guided by Jesus my Spiritual Mentor might be considered by some as heretical. This is where courage and faith comes in, when what the Divine communicates is the opposite of what many others believe as truth.

What is my reaction to the Book of Revelation claim that Jesus will come again on a horse, in battle, with vengeance, destroying and slaughtering?

I believe Jesus has already come again within each of our hearts. That heart-dwelling presence is so much more powerful than Jesus returning as a separate being ready to do battle. He has so much more influence when he works through each one of us. It’s Jesus multiplied! Of course, because of free will, we must give permission for Jesus to serve through us. But once we do, WOW!

According to Jesus through Divine messages to me, the Book of Revelation that claims Jesus will come again and in such horrific wrath is the opposite of what he taught us. The Revelation writing style is copied from the apocalyptic books that were written before Jesus was born.

At the time of Jesus’ birth, the Jewish people hoped the Messiah would come as an avenging angel bringing rebellion and death to their Roman enemies. Instead Jesus came as love, teaching that God is love not hate, forgiveness not revenge. Even his disciples struggled with this opposite shift to what they had been taught. The Book of Revelation returns to the old Jewish thinking, which is a misleading interpretation of Jesus’ true revelation.

I understand and sympathize with why this book was written – to give the persecuted Christians hope during the most brutal time in Christian history when they were being thrown to the lions and tortured in horrendous ways. The writings encouraged people to stay strong, that something better was coming for them – a true message for everyone for all time. The message that no matter what, “JESUS WINS!” Which means, we win.

 

What did Jesus really teach?

Simplified, Jesus taught us not only that we are love, but that our only and true power is within, with God, Jesus… not from outside of us. To share a Jesus quote he gave to me with the intent for me to share…

“You are One with the Source, and the Source is your unlimited supplier, not a human, which means you are to turn to the Source for all things.” Jesus. “Divine Messages from Jesus for a magnificent life. 2015. Cathey, Carolyne

That doesn’t mean good doesn’t come through others, it does, but we are to remember that their source is also God.

What does that good news mean for us?

  • It means we are empowered. Our God-connection, which is our 24/7 continual interaction with the Greatest Power in the Universe, is wiser and stronger than anyone or anything outside of us.
  • It means freedom. Do you realize how incredible that is? It means no one outside of us takes away our freedom to choose unless we allow it. It means that our wisdom and guidance as to what is best for us and our life is always within us. We don’t have to climb a mountain in a distant land to seek wisdom. We carry it around within us all the time. But first we must recognize it, accept it, and work with our Spiritual Partners such as Jesus, Guardian Angels., etc. Each of us is blessed with a spiritual team that is eager and willing to work with us for our most magnificent life.

What is the truth of that good news?

We don’t have to wait for Jesus to come again. He is already here. Right now. In your heart. Do you feel him? Hear him? He’s there whether or not you realize it. He’s eager to serve as your teammate. If you haven’t already done so…

Ask Jesus to be your co-partner. Then trust.

Divine Message: Focus on Jesus, Not on the World.

Like you, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the need in the world and how to make a meaningful impact. This post is what Jesus said we are to do. 

This post is about a vision on FOCUS I had from Jesus when meditating. As usual, the vision came in a flash, all at once. The challenge is in pulling the vision into a linear thread for human understanding. 

Excerpt from “Divine Messages from Jesus for a magnificent life“. p. 75-76. 2015. Cathey, Carolyne.

Vision: FOCUS ON JESUS, NOT ON THE WORLD

Like you, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the need in the world and how to make a meaningful impact. I might make little bits of differences here and there as I pass through life, but they seem minor and relatively insignificant in the grander scale of – the world! Does any of it really matter? What can I do to make a difference when the problems are so vast?

One day when meditating, Jesus said…

“Come with me.”

I soared with Him over valleys, then up, away from the world and into space. Jesus stopped, but stayed close in front of me. I stared down and to my left at the blue-marble world floating in the star-strewn galaxy. He placed his hand on my cheek and turned my face toward his. As soon as he let go, my attention went from him to the world. He gently placed his hand on my face again, turning it back to him. When he moved his hand away, my head turned back to the blue planet. A third time, and with gentle patience, he placed his hand on my cheek and turned my attention to him, catching me with his brilliant blue gaze.

“Focus on Me.” He said. “Let Me take care of the world. Are you big enough to take care of it?”

“Absolutely not!” I said.

“Then focus on Me. I am big enough. Let me take care of the World – through you.”

Meaning: What this message means is that, with your permission, you are the arms, the legs, the eyes, ears and voice – the being through which the One Power for Good flows into the world – from right where you are. You are given a passion, a purpose, a talent that affects the world in a way unique to you. It’s you, doing your part, which then melds with others as one powerful whole. And in this, you change the world.

Action: Ask Jesus, “Use me!”

Receiving and Giving Are One Cord – A Divine Message

This is a Divine message I received on why we can’t give without receiving, and that whatever we give we first receive from God, Our Source.

Receiving and Giving are One Cord

HAVE YOU HEARD the saying that it is easier to give than receive? That saying described me. For some reason I loved giving but I had a hard time receiving. People would offer to give to me in return but I would decline. I would notice the hurt in their eyes, which made me feel guilty, and yet I felt guilty in accepting.

I wondered why it seems easier to give than receive? Pride? Ego? An “I don’t want to be a burden,” attitude? An “I can do it myself” attitude? I felt less somehow when a person would offer to help, like I was lacking something that someone else had to fill in because I was inadequate or flawed. As a result, I was unintentionally rude when I would turn down someone’s offer to help or to give me something. I didn’t mean to be rude. I meant not to be a burden or bother, or dependent. Or even more, that I didn’t need anyone’s help (can you hear the ego in that statement?) With my refusal I could see the disappointment in someone’s eyes or demeanor that showed I had rejected the generosity from their heart.

Jesus kept assuring me that giving and receiving are the same, but I couldn’t see it. To me, giving indicated strength, receiving revealed weakness.

One day, he flashed a vision into my mind that is best demonstrated by acting it out.

Exercise

To act out the vision, stand up to demonstrate this truth.

Imagine a thick nylon cord or rope threading through your solar plexus, front to back and it slides both ways. Place one hand on the imaginary cord coming out the front of your waist, and one hand on the same imaginary cord threading through you out the back of your waist. When you pull so that the rope goes outward from you, as in giving, notice that it also comes into you from the back, as in receiving. With the invisible cord in your hands, let the cable slide back and forth and you’ll see that no matter which way the cord glides, when you are giving, you are also receiving.

Jesus said:

“Everything you have is from the Divine. Everything. Including the love that fills you, love that is so freely given to you from your Creator. Everything you receive you first receive from the Divine. When others are giving to you, you are receiving what flowed through them from the Divine. So, whether giving or receiving, it is all from your Source, your Unlimited Supplier. 

“This image demonstrates that receiving and giving are the same. Your problem is that you allow ego and pride to get in your way, that when you decline a generous offer, you not only hurt the other person, you also hurt yourself. When you refuse to receive, you are blocking the natural flow. You are trying to separate the inseparable.

“Notice that when you slide the cord back and forth, that the giving comes from inside you at the same time that the receiving slips inside you, so you cannot possibly give without also giving to yourself.

“You can name the cord. If you name the cord ‘hate’, then when you give hate, that is what you receive. If you name the cord ‘love’, then when you give love, you receive love in return. Which means that if you want to receive love, then you must give love—in remembrance that you are giving from the love you’ve already received. You are created from love. You are love. Give what you truly are—love.”

Now the vision shifts:

“Imagine that the cord that runs through you also runs through a person in front of you and a person behind you, and the people on the other side of each of them. See the connection?” he said. “For someone to give there must be someone else to receive that gift, and of course, the reverse is true. For someone else to give, then another must receive.

“As with the cord, receiving isn’t always from the same person to whom you give. You will often receive back from unexpected sources.

“Also notice that when you give there is no lack because as you are giving, what you receive slips in continuously, allowing continual giving. That is the natural flow. The natural flow of giving and receiving is always going on —there is no life without it.”

Meaning: This message applies to all of creation—people, animals and the planet. Again, you might ‘receive’ from varying forms. Animals love in return, just like people, and sometimes better than people. Contributing in your own loving way fosters a more loving, healthy community, which benefits you and everyone.

Action:

Today, practice giving and receiving love with a smile and with gratitude.


“Everything you have is from the Divine. Everything. Including the love that fills you, love that is so freely given to you from your Creator. Everything you receive you first receive from the Divine. When others are giving to you, you are receiving what flowed through them from the Divine. So, whether giving or receiving, it is all from your Source, your Unlimited Supplier.” ~ Jesus, Divine Message from Jesus. p. 365. 2015. Cathey, Carolyne.


 

Gratitude!

* When we are surrounded by and filled with abundance – abundance of unconditional love (that means we are loved anyway), we can’t help but feel gratitude, and even more, to live in a constant state of gratitude.

* Gratitude for joy, beauty, Divine Wisdom and Guidance.

* Gratitude for the places where we live.

  • * Gratitude for our families and friends.
  • * Gratitude for our opportunities for service,

* Gratitude for life itself.

* Gratitude that we are never alone.

 * And even gratitude for life challenges that deepen us, strengthen us, that teach us compassion.

* Gratitude that there is hope and life beyond our fears, and that all we have to do is turn everything over in surrender.

* Gratitude that we are created from God-magnificence because that is all with which God creates, which by default, means that we, too, are magnificent.

* Gratitude that no matter how we use our free will, mistakes or triumph, God is always with us, loving us anyway, supporting us, leading us to the greatness we are meant to experience if we but allow it – and trust.

For what are you grateful?

God bless you.

YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT!


 


Six Steps to an Abundant Life

The Gospel of John, Chapter 10, Verse 10: Jesus said, I have come that you may have life, and have it abundantly.

What is abundance?

For the answer, I’d like to share with you a Divine message I received on abundance because for several reasons I was uncomfortable with affluence. Have you ever felt that way? Jesus kept telling me I was wrong, that I misunderstood. So, like you are encouraged to do when you have questions, I asked for the truth. As soon as I ‘thought’ the word ‘abundance’ …

A HUGE fountain flashed into my mind. A fountain larger than anything you see in reality, with sparkling crystal-clear water gushing up high and then falling back down into the top container before overflowing into the next wider container that cascaded noisily into the deep basin below. The water caught the light like diamonds, shimmering and glittering. Never-ending.

“That is Abundance,” Jesus said. “More than you ever need, always free flowing.

“Oddly,” he explained, “some people are afraid of abundance, or that they will feel overwhelmed or it will change their lifestyle or they won’t feel wise enough to handle it well, or they feel guilty experiencing abundance if others are lacking. Or they think in limitation, incorrectly believing there are limited resources and they have less because others have taken more than their fair share.”

“That kind of false thinking means you believe that your abundance comes from outside yourself, when in Reality it comes from inside you, from your True Source, from your Unlimited Supplier.

He added…

“The Highest-Truth-thinking is not to pull everyone down to the lowest level of falsely perceived and illusionary limitation, but to encourage everyone to raise to the highest level of the true limitless abundance that they choose to experience.

Then he asked…

“Out of all the unlimited abundance what do you choose for you?”

I saw an instant image of the entire universe as a buffet table.

“What food dishes off of the unlimited buffet table do you like best? You can’t eat all of the food. That is too much, you choose what you want.

“You deal with abundance in the same way; you use the freely-offered gift and control it by deciding what out of the all of the ever-present abundance brings you pleasure, then select that, in the amount you decide.

“However,” he added, “in thinking about abundance, remember it’s not the material ‘stuff’ that is of the greatest import. It’s trusting in the God-gifts of which it is impossible to have too much – beauty, peace, joy, light, wisdom and love – and all the other God attributes. Open up to all of that abundance that you are willing to allow, for that is where your bliss lies – not with the temporary but with the Eternal.”

Six steps for an abundant life Jesus has taught me:

  1. Choose to live life to the fullest. Decide to experience the highest and best that is possible to experience because that is all God offers – the highest and best. Accepting anything less means you cheat yourself, you cheat the world.
  2. Accept life as the adventure it is. Take risks. Live in joy. Be bold. Live. Laugh. Love. Enjoy. Care. Be. Be who you are at all times – Love
  3. Don’t sit around waiting to die. Even if you’re already ill. The last breath comes soon enough. No matter your age or health, each moment is a new beginning, a new opportunity. Ask God if there is still something you are meant to do while still on this earth plane.
  4. If you feel strongly there is something God wants you to do, go for it. If you don’t, you’ll never know what might have happened if you but had courage. You might always wonder if you missed out on the greatest event that was to happen in your lifetime. One of those life-end regrets that is too late to change.
  5. Commitment: The first step is a doozy. But with that courage, comes Universal Divine support just waiting for our first step. That leap cannot be made for us. We have to choose to do it ourselves. Once we do, it seems miraculous how the Universe supports us in ways we never imagined.
  6. Surrender: I’ve learned that Surrender is more than releasing, it is, in reality, receiving. We have to release the fears and blockages, and then surrender to the Ultimate Force in order to make room to receive all of the fabulous abundance. Don’t we all want to receive whatever is the best for us? Then we have to make room for it. So, we ask God to empty us of all hindrances, fears and negative attitudes and then exclaim we’re ready to receive, with gratitude!

A thought to consider: If you could place an order, like from the menu of abundance, knowing it would be brought for you, what would you ask for? What would you like to do on this earth in this human experience while you are still here to do it? What will you regret if you don’t do it while you’re alive in the physical? Now is your chance. It’s your time! Now, go for it!

God bless you.

YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT!

Truth Worth Dying For

If you have been following me, you are aware that Jesus called me to serve with him as part of a spiritual team. FYI, he is eager to co-partner with anyone who says “Use me.” Jesus is now my Spiritual Mentor/Guide and I’m blessed to receive Divine messages that are meant for everyone in order to help us all with our daily lives.


THIS DIVINE MESSAGE shows a better way, a freeing way, an empowering way, the True Way.

I grew up attending a beautiful church. I enjoyed being in the historic Art Deco building with the light streaming like rainbows through the tall stained glass windows. I learned much there and received a wonderful foundation. I also loved reading the Bible daily and read the Bible several times as a youth and an adult, studying authors who pulled the meanings of the words from manuscripts in the original languages.

However, in my studies, I questioned some of the accepted beliefs. One was that meditation was sinful—occult. In reality, meditation is one of the most freeing and rewarding undertakings I’ve ever done. Other beliefs I questioned were that we are born in sin and that Jesus died to save us from our sins. I do believe Jesus died for us, but he did so because he dared to teach the truth—a truth so heretical, it led to the cross.

Vision: One time during a meditation this vision slipped into my mind elucidating the differences between the religion practiced in Jesus’ time, and the truth he dared preach. Your religion doesn’t affect the truth; Christian or not, the truth is the same.

To envision what I experienced:

Imagine you are within a maze made out of tall shrubs higher than your head. In this maze, you can only see the dark, straight-sided shrubs, the pathway, and the rectangle of the heavenly sky that is high above, seemingly beyond your reach. The tall, plant-formed walls represent the man-defined rules and regulations you have to follow to be considered ‘good’. If you make a mistake or break these rules, you must suffer the punishment from a vengeful and jealous God—an eye-for-an- eye retribution and judgment. There are so many claustrophobic walls in this maze that confine and direct, that one wrong turn, and you could get lost—maybe forever.

Then one day, a stranger calling himself Jesus opens a door within the shrub at the end of the pathway and a golden light shines through the opening to guide you to a better way. Enticed, you step from the dark maze into the light. The man-defined walls fall away.

You are now in a meadow, surrounded by wildflowers and fresh air and sunshine and a sky that surrounds you and is part of the air you breathe. There is freedom in this meadow filled with joy, love and laughter.

Jesus said:

“Much of what you’ve been taught to believe is an illusion. Here is the truth:

* God is love, peace, joy and forgiveness, not fear, jealousy, vindictiveness and revenge.

* The Kingdom of God is within you.

* You and God are one.

* If you believe, you can work miracles.

* Your beliefs shape your life.

* The powerful connection I have with God is the same powerful connection for you.”

The leaders of the day during Jesus time were furious, and frightened. The opposing views Jesus taught were a danger to them as a cohesive society. If rebellions occurred because of Jesus’ heretical teachings, the Roman’s could use the uprisings as an excuse to slaughter the Jewish people. Even more, Jesus‘ views threatened the power of the Jewish spiritual leaders and their very existence. To protect the Jewish people as a race, and for their own power, the leaders commanded Jesus to recant, or die.

And yet, despite the anger, the accusations, the betrayal and the threat to his own life, he never wavered from telling the real truth. How many of us might default and express denial to save our own life? How many of us if confronted by a robber who vowed to spare us if we denied our beliefs, whatever they might be, would say anything to save ourselves, knowing we could disavow it later because we, in our hearts, didn’t believe it? We would merely be doing what we had to do to survive.

* The strength of Jesus’ message, of his sacrifice, is that he didn’t merely preach his truth, or live it when convenient. He lived his truth, unto death.

So in essence, he did die for us, by giving his life so that we, too, would know that truth. He spread his messages to all who would hear and he lived according to his ‘knowing’ of the truth.

By living his truth, he changed the world. How different would the world be if he hadn’t done so? How different would the world be if you lived your truth?

Meaning: The challenge is in knowing what that truth is and daring to live it. As Jesus said, the eternal truth is the eternal truth and is beyond any man-defined interpretations which are often twisted according to particular agendas. The only way to know the real truth is from the Inner Divine Source. Even the knowing of truth is challenging. How do you know that what you are hearing, sensing from within your Inner God connection is accurate?

You are to ask Jesus, listen, then ask again, until you are certain, without doubt, that you are receiving the God-truth. Don’t depend on anyone else to decide that truth for you. Yes, you receive the truth from talks and books and from other’s hearts. But are they the real truth? What rings true for you? The responsibility for that ‘knowing’ is up to you, along with your Divine Guide. What if you follow someone else’s claim of what is the truth, only to realize later they were wrong?

Work with your spiritual mentor in co-creating your life and learning the eternal truth. Beware teachings claiming that only they know the real God, and that if you believe otherwise you are damned. Those claims are not the truth. How can you know? Because—

God is love. It’s that easy.

You are responsible, with Divine guidance, for learning your own truth, then living it. In doing so, you’ll change your own world, which changes the world around you.


“The powerful connection I have with God is the same powerful connection for you.” ~ Jesus

Don’t Throw Away the Gift Because You Don’t Like the Wrapping

If you have been following me, you are aware that Jesus called me to serve with him as part of a spiritual team. FYI, he is eager to co-partner with anyone who says “Use me.” Jesus is now my Spiritual Mentor/Guide and I’m blessed to receive Divine messages that are meant for everyone in order to help us all with our daily lives.


THIS DIVINE MESSAGE is where Jesus shares how his teachings were misinterpreted and that the true meaning of what he came to impart has been twisted into the opposite of the lessons he brought to the world.

The phrase “Don’t throw away the gift because you don’t like the wrapping” is true of actual packages and especially of people. There is a great timeless gift in this message.

The true treasure of the eternal truth messages Jesus came to earth to share has been wrapped so many times in so many different unattractive, misunderstood wrappings, that people often discard the entire package, rejecting the gold inside along with the outer dross. There are people who are loving and open-minded for all kinds of different messages but will walk out of the room if the name Easter, or Christmas, or Christ, or Christian, or Christ Consciousness, or Jesus is mentioned. Even the name, God. And yet, bear with me here, there truly is a Universal message for all despite your beliefs.

Jesus said:

“Easter (and Christmas, or any Christian holiday) isn’t about the messenger (Jesus), it’s about the message. I didn’t create the Truth that I willingly gave my physical life to share with the world. I merely illuminated what was always and is forever true— the eternal truth for everyone—because if what I embodied and lived was for only one person, what was the point? My life and messages serve as examples of what everyone can be—what you can be, and are. It doesn’t matter who gets the credit because only one truly receives the credit—the Originator, the Creator, the Infinite, God.”

The vision that I received in connection with this message:

One Source: The Kingdom of God is within you

An image flashed into my mind of a softly glowing silhouette like a gingerbread figure in a cookie-cutter shape, with deeper-toned outside edges and a rich, softly glowing golden-beige within the lines.

The shape appeared in front of a background of the identical glowing inner color, the smaller obviously created from the larger Source. Multiple umbilical-type cords (the same color as the Source and with a darkened outline to define the shapes and lines) connected the being from within the Source that reached beyond my vision without end.

Jesus said,

“Through these ever-connecting cords flow your spiritual blood, forever feeding you nutrients such as wisdom, power, guidance and compassion.”

“And love,” I added, surprised at the omission.

He said:

“Love is part of all of them. What is wisdom without love? How can there be compassion without love? Power without love would be ill-used and thus no true power at all. And guidance to what and where? If there is no love, then you are mis-guided.

“And if you notice, you and all of creation are the same as the Source, made from the Source, fed from the Source of the Source.

“Remember when I said, ‘The Kingdom of God is within you’? The image is a visual of how and why that statement is true. There is never any separation, only the smaller individualized, defining borders to show the various creations of and from the Infinite—a creation of and from the Divine.

“Also take note that the image is without a label, without any distinguishing features. It is ‘creation’. It exists no matter what name humans call it. It needs no name, because it merely is.”

“Labels are an earthly means of identifying the different creations when you communicate with each other. Go beyond labels to the truth, to your Source, from where you are filled and fulfilled, no matter your situation—the being through which everlasting love flows continually whether your eternal Spirit is in or out of the physical body, and no matter the drama playing out around you.”

“Your uniqueness comes from being who you are in all situations whether pleasant or unpleasant. Don’t alter who you are like a color-changing chameleon to match what is around you merely for the purpose of becoming more popular, better liked, the fad of the moment, the superficial. Each being is incredible. Always live your truth. With integrity. With courage. With compassion. With forgiveness. Without exception.”

Meaning: This message is meant to encourage you to open up to the real truth of Jesus’ original messages he gave his life for us to know—to look at them from a different angle. What are some of these messages?

* He doesn’t want to be worshiped but to be considered a partner who, when you allow, works with and through you. (This is not to fear, but to welcome.)

* There is no hierarchy—all are equal in the eyes of the Creator. You are as important as anyone else, no matter whether president or janitor; all are loved equally by God.

* The Kingdom of God is within you, along with all of your Divine answers and assistance.

* You are one with the Source and all of the power and amazing support that comes in tandem with being one with the Power of the Universe.

* There is no vengeful God punishing you for any error, only a God of Love that loves you unconditionally.

The Shocking Revelation

If you have been following me, you are aware that Jesus called me to serve with him as part of a spiritual team. FYI, he is eager to co-partner with anyone who says “Use me.” Jesus is now my Spiritual Mentor/Guide and I’m blessed to receive Divine messages that are meant for everyone in order to help us all with our daily lives.


ONE OF THE most shocking revelations from Jesus is a truth that might alarm you, a truth I fought to disbelieve and was stubborn about accepting. However, stay with me on this before you pass judgment on what seems like a heretical statement. This truth is for you, too. For everyone.

What is this outrageous truth?

Through meditations, visions and conversations, Jesus repeatedly made clear to me—

He doesn’t want to be worshiped!

At first, I didn’t believe that message. How could I not worship him? The thought made me ill. Even worse, what if I misunderstood what he was trying to tell me?

Jesus said:

“I seek partners. I can best accomplish Divine work through you, with you as my hands, my voice and my presence, which is more difficult to accomplish when you are on your knees, head down, acting falsely as if you are separate, incapable and unworthy. Believing yourself weak and unworthy means you hold back, are hesitant, and are, in actuality, a hindrance. You believe a lie. That is not the truth of who you are.

“When you, God’s creation, consider yourself unworthy, unimportant, ‘only me’, you insult your Creator. What I seek with you is the embodiment of the truth of our Oneness, for you to allow eternal truth messages to flow through you to a spiritually-hungry world. To succeed with the most impact, you need to reorient to who you really are—a child of God, created by God from God. You couldn’t be more priceless, because you are created from the greatest there is.”

How do I know this is the truth? Because of the visions:

Whenever I tried to kneel in worship to him, he caught me before my knees touched the ground and pulled me to a standing position, insisting we are partners, a team.

 He said:

“I am your spiritual guide. Spiritual beings in human form are crucial to the partnership so that I can help the world, through you, especially when you stand strong in God-confidence.”

The one time I did succeed in kneeling before him, he immediately knelt with me, joining with me as one, saying:

“We truly are a team. I will meet you on whatever level you are.

“I ask you to allow me to work through you. I ask you to serve as a doorway through which spiritual truths flow. The one who benefits most is you.“

This message does seem in opposition to what we’ve been taught by others, and yet the truth shines through.

He said:

“God works best work with you, not as a worshiper who has falsely separated yourself from your Source (which is impossible), but as a partner.

“There is nothing to fear. I’m not going to ask you to do anything you don’t love and enjoy. You always have free choice. What will come through you is love. Love, for yourself and others. Embodying that love in all you say and do.”

The key: Jesus said…

“The key is in ‘allowing’ me to work through you. You are a vital part in the Divine plan, but I will never force you. You must be willing and available, and to give your permission. I wait for you to invite me in to your heart and say ‘Use me’. Then know that what comes through you is joy and harmony and all aspects of abundant love.”

Meaning: The meaning is clear, but the traditional teachings are more difficult to overcome. At first it feels heretical not to worship Jesus. I had to work past the traditional learning to what Jesus assures me is the truth. I finally understand that what he tells me makes perfect sense and I can see why Jesus is insistent he wants partners, not worshipers.

Worshipers are more work, to be honest. You have to drag protesting people to get them past the many misperceived barriers (lies) to accomplish anything. Barriers such as fear, hesitation, feelings of unworthiness and other negative thoughts. That is hard work. And time consuming.

Because people have free will, they make all kinds of excuses why not to do something and why they aren’t good enough. “Surely, God, you don’t mean me? I’m nobody. I can’t do it. I don’t have the skill. My mind is playing tricks on me to make me think you actually want me. Why me?” The excuses make me feel tired just to write them and, even more, makes me want to say, “Fine! Then I’ll go to someone who is willing to let me work through them. There is a job to do.”

To the contrary, a partner is ready to go. They have an equal stake in the outcome. They realize they are an important cog in the gears of the Universe because of their usefulness to the Divine, or why bother to exist? The conversation switches from “Why me?” to “Use me!”

This message is well worth your taking the time and effort to re-shift your thinking from the traditional to the truth. You are important. And really, doesn’t it make sense? That we serve as a Divine communication tool to help us and all of humanity? Agreeing is so simple. Merely ask. Invite.


“To succeed with the most impact, you need to reorient to who you really are—a child of God, created by God from God. How precious is that? You couldn’t be more priceless. You are created from the greatest there is.” ~ Jesus

Traditions and Misconceptions

If you have been following me, you are aware that Jesus called me to serve with him as part of a spiritual team. FYI, he is eager to co-partner with anyone who says “Use me.” Jesus is now my Spiritual Mentor/Guide and I’m blessed to receive Divine messages that are meant for everyone in order to help us all with our daily lives.


WELL-MEANING BUT incorrect teachings and traditions are difficult to overcome. After I started receiving Divine messages, I became confused and full of doubt because Jesus was taking me in completely different directions from what I had been taught as eternal truth. There is a lot of guilt attached to letting go of what we’ve been taught is God’s truth. I struggled with what to believe and not believe about what I had been taught growing up (not from my parents, but from church and society).

In a vision I received during a meditation:

Jesus and I merged as one, soaring high above the world and into the darkness of space. We swooped lower, flying over the night-blanketed ocean toward lights glowing on the distant shoreline. As we approached, we entered an ancient village, like in the Middle East in biblical times, with wheat-colored stucco buildings lined along narrow, dusty streets and people dressed in long robes and head coverings.

A white light spread out from the God within me casting a shimmering luminosity on the buildings and people.

Suddenly I was on the ground and bound in brown leather tethers. I couldn’t move! I couldn’t breathe! No matter how hard I struggled the leather held me imprisoned within the claustrophobic bindings. Panicked I mentally cried out for release.

As soon as I called out, Jesus lifted me and the tethers broke, freeing me. Breathing oxygen deep into my lungs, I spread my arms wide in joy, freedom and gratitude.

Jesus said:

“Like with the leather tethers, you are sometimes bound by old traditions and misconceptions that aren’t necessarily the truth. These man-defined restrictions hamper you from knowing the truth, even burdening you with guilt for questioning, binding you to false teachings.

“When you trust in your Creator, the Source shines the radiant, glowing light of truth within you, guiding you to what is real, liberating you from spiritually-impeding beliefs.

“By recognizing the truth, you are loosed from the misconceptions holding you in bondage and preventing your spiritual growth. You are freed to experience a truth that might be different from what you’ve been taught by well-meaning others who have done their best to explain the unexplainable.

“After those bonds of misconception are broken, you can truly grow and experience the fullness God intends for you.

“Open to new spiritual discoveries that allow you to expand into the boundless infinite that is not man-defined, but God-refined—freed from the impurities of false traditions and misconceptions.
