"New Year Message:
Morning, January 15, 2006
Bible Reference: I CORINTHIANS
I bring to you
greetings. We consider this, this morning, and with John in the next week
to be the presentation of our New Year’s message.
We will be
straight-forward and we do ask that you place these messages on your
Internet as quickly as possible and to see that all members who have not
been here receive the message or a copy of this message. In this way, we
can extend our New Year’s message to you and extend also the idea of the
times; the idea of the search, and the idea that Mr. Ayer has instilled
within this Temple. The time has come for it to be fully understood as it
works to and with all that is occurring today.
bring to you greetings.
Scripture this morning is an important guideline for anyone who seeks to
understand and work with God; to have God walk with them, and for them to
walk with God. To understand the teachings and the message of Jesus Christ:
to bring forth not only the concept of Salvation, of Security, and of Hope,
and to bring about the idea of free thinking, not just thinking.
To bring about
within the spiritual worlds and the worlds upon the earth the idea and the
realization that belief is of vital importance, that how and what we
believe is of vital importance, and that his message was to bring us close
to the workings of God; the gifts God gives to us; to bring the Spirit
closer to the Earth and the Earth closer to the Spirit.
tells us that we need to use our hearts and our heads. It tells us that
there are ways and means by which many will try to confuse the issues and
beliefs of God. The thoughts that have been passed to us all throughout
enormous amounts of time.
is not whole, and everything past is certainly, not broken. But we come to
try to understand what we believe as Spirits and what our mission upon the
Earth is. What is the meaning of my life? The purpose of my life? Then it
becomes of great importance to seek, to understand.
God gives us
gifts, gifts of the Spirit, according to what He sees in all things. We can
say to ourselves: “everyone has the potential of being a medium.” Well everyone may have the
potential, but certainly not everyone will. Not all will even show the
care. And that’s okay. There are those who will be engaged in
the gifts of healing, but not everyone will be engaged in the gifts of
healing. There will be those who will reach to interpret tongues, to help
bring the message of various Spirits forward so that they are understood,
or even if they are spoken in the language in which they are heard, they
still often need to be understood.
And so the
discerning of tongues and the interpretation of tongues and the
interpretation of those who speak, who come to bring forth messages and to
bring forth the connections of Spirit; to God, through demonstration,
through Spirit-to-Spirit communicating without the barriers of death, or
space or quiet.
The gifts are
apportioned to be able to do many things as God apportions them. If a
person in their life, in the choice of their course, has no need for these
gifts, then while they may be examined they may not be automatically
assumed. And when we give ourselves; when we recognize these gifts,
whatever they might be, in the course of our lives walking down the street,
working with people, with families, working with loved ones. When we see or
feel these gifts for us, and we accept them, then we must accept them in
all ways. This according to Mr. Ayer, from the Scripture, from which God and
Christ ask us to manifest: accepted for the common good of all. Not for the
Ego, not for the self, not to be boosted up to be seen as this or that. But
to honestly and completely take upon yourself the gift with which you feel
you have been given.
understand it. Seek to work with it. Seek to bring those gifts to God, to
Jesus Christ and ask for all the guidance you can receive. So when you work
with these gifts should they manifest, work with them humbly, work with
them to help and to serve others, not to measure how much you serve others
or do not. Do not judge others who do not have those gifts, or do not seek
them out. We work together and we come to believe together and when we
believe the common good is served, wherever individuals are served above
the common good, there is mischief about and the gifts are in a word,
this new year, when you reach to God and you pray, ask God to help you, to
guide you. Ask Jesus to lay his hand and the hand of Spirit upon you, that
you might discover these gifts more deeply and more fully, that they might
become a dedication of your Spirit giving life and meaning to you, and life
and meaning to others. And be comforted in knowing that we can touch one
another and walk away and when we are needed we will be called. That when
we touch we also shall be touched. We give then, of ourselves if we
understand this great Scripture. We give of ourselves freely, we present
the gift as it is, we present ourselves fully and totally and we do not
take upon ourselves behind the scene all that which may make the gift
In the new year,
times will be changing, things will change as they do in each new year.
Time for spiritual gifts is rapidly coming upon us, the time to look at
them, to think about them, to see to it that we work upon them. Not try to
find every spiritual gift that can be mentioned or stated on a list so that
we can hopefully decide which we’re going to work with. Today is a year in which
we need to decide; a year in which we need to be one thing until we can
fully understand it. A time in which we need to reach to one another and
not cause any harm in any way. Not by thought, not by tongue, not by action.
It’s a time when we find within
ourselves when we seek deeply to maintain the gifts of the Spirit, to
understand them, to work with them, to try and to develop them. That we
feel the presence of God and God’s commitment to us and the commitment he seeks
from us. We find a Kingdom of Spirit which lives and dwells within us and
therefore can never be far off, distant, or unattainable. We need to
believe in the power of God to help us and to guide us. To help us find
within our lives meaning and purpose no matter what may happen, that we
might find hope and security. That we might find the protection offered.
That doesn’t mean it’s not going to rain. That doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be thunder and
lightning. It doesn’t mean that there isn’t going to be discomfort. It
mean that there will be a loss of comfort. It doesn’t mean that we will never be
happy. It does not mean that we shall never succeed and prosper. It does
not mean that we shall never be happy.
What our believes
and our works do together is what brings about the bridge of the Kingdom
for each and every one of us and for each and every soul we touch and come
upon. It’s a new year, it’s a new time. It’s a time of new commitment to
understand more deeply and more fully. To come together as a family and as
a community for the purpose of what we can all do together not what we can
all do separately. It is a time that we put behind our words, behind our
hopes, behind our prayers and behind our beliefs all that which is given
freely of God and of Jesus Christ. All that which is given freely to us by
guides, your spirit workers do not come simply to manifest and manage or
maintain spiritual gifts. They come to help you find the meaning and the
purpose for using them. The meaning and the purpose behind them. The
meaning and the purpose within the silence without words; the meaning and
the purpose within all things.
And with this,
the Kingdom of Spirit which is the Kingdom of God is a Spirit within you
and when you take these gifts upon yourself you take that blessing also.
Do not, do not
water it down. People are in need. People need to know. People need to see
people who truly believe in what they see and what they believe and what
they teach. They do not need to see structures which present similarities,
which presents maybes, if’s and oh yeses. They do not need to see those
who will present themselves or their gifts as above all things. They need
to see the simple down-to-earth honest fact that you believe in what you
say, that you believe in what you do. That means that we must depend upon
our characters and we must give character a big place in our lives.
Everyone can say
I have character, I have standards and I have principle, but if these thing
last for no more than a few weeks or a month and they’ve changed yet again, we need
to stop and ask God and Spirit to help us, to guide us. Are we on a journey
just for ourselves? Or does the fact that we are on that journey mean that
we are in search to help others as well in different ways, in many
And so it’s a new year. It’s a new year at the First
Spiritual Temple. It’s a new year for all of us as Spirit to come
together. It’s a new year for us to think, to think, to
think, and to remember, and remember and remember.
If we do not
think, we will have little effect. If we do not remember we will never know
who we are so we will never come to know who we can be or who we could have
If we do not
remember the struggle then we will never be able to use spiritual gifts to
help ourselves or to help others lessen that struggle; to find faith and
hope in the most horrible situations. God said, "Speak, and you shall
be heard. Hope, and hope shall blossom."
Have faith and
rediscover the wonders within yourself and help others to understand that
wonder as well. It means coming together. It means being together. It means
believing and respecting. Look at it this way and very simply: so many
people today want to be mediums. They believe in communication between
Spirits both on the Earth and in Heaven. They believe that communication
can pass the barriers of thought which compromise death. They believe in
many aspects of healing. They believe that Spirit can touch our hearts and
touch our souls. And yet, in that belief, we lose our foundation. We can
too easily, too quickly, come to seek more and more beliefs because we have
not come to understand the ones we hold. Hold on to what you can see in
your Spirit and in your heart and when you see it in the world, be ever so
grateful. And if you do not see it, be ever so faithful.
We cannot believe
only in ourselves. We cannot believe only in our own gifts. We cannot
believe that all Creation is just for us. We cannot believe that all
manifestations of the Kingdom and of Spirit are for us to use as we so
choose and say that we believe. If we find that we are resentful toward God
because God is an authority, or Jesus Christ because of well, all the
things that people have done in his name through the past, we eliminate the
bridge, we eliminate the connections.
If we cannot
believe in what we say, if we cannot believe in what we do, if we believe
in being hopeful and helpful and reaching and being faithful and then move
in such ways as to harm and to hurt others with our words, then we do not
believe. If we cannot believe in God then we cannot believe in Spirit. If
we cannot believe in Jesus Christ we cannot believe in the message that
moves throughout all Creation. If we can’t believe in Mohammad; if we
believe in Buddha, then we have nothing left. All that we believe is a
shadow, a hopefulness, maybe. When we can truly come to believe, when we
can say God knows and will reach out to me, my life is not all within my
control but I must do all that I can. Then, we bring the Kingdoms together.
a wondrous goal for a new year. It’s a wonderful process for us to enter into for a
new year. The world needs it desperately and will need it even more so. As
we continue more and more to say what we believe to cover the fact that we
Let us then in
this new year resolve to ask God to help us. Resolve to seek to believe.
Resolve to understand the meaning of Covenant. Resolve to understand the
meaning of commitment to one another, both in the physical world and as
Spirits. Let us not be all separate. Let us come together. Separate cannot
build a bridge—together we can do anything.
So with this we
wish you a happy new year. We know that you will find things beyond your
imagination and hope. We know that no matter how fearful things might seem
or become, with God, with Christ, with faith, with hope and with our stern
beliefs as Spirit we can move through anything. Not simply because we wish
it, but because we will have faith to move mountains, empowered by the love
May God, then, be
with you all.
