The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Grace and Mercy.”
Received by Lytske.
One: “Dear one, allow me to offer a few words on the subject of grace
and mercy. You often pray and give thanks for God’s grace and mercy, but do you really know what this means? Grace is
the experience of life itself; being able to do as you please because God gave you the free will gift of making choices and
decisions. By the grace of God, you are a free-willed creature. This gift is bestowed upon you so you may choose to make the
right choices and follow His will on the road towards perfection. God only desires that you come to this decision, so that
you wholeheartedly, and without coercion from anyone, church, state, or significant others, will make up your mind to follow
Him. This is the grace bestowed upon each human being, and it needs to be more widely understood.
“Too many people
still depend upon a worldly hierarchy to lead them towards the correct way of living. Much damage can be done in following
blindly any precept or dogma set before you without examining if this feels right in your heart. So often you were told that
a Spark of God lives right inside of you to teach you the correct way if you will but listen to that Still Small Voice. Even
your perceived wrong doing with related guilt feelings are looked upon as learning experiences which will ultimately gain
you your personal wisdom. This is a necessary requirement; experience in life is needed so you may learn right from wrong.
It is purely God’s mercy which allows you to experience this and so, by repentance of your ways, you obtain the mercy
you seek in God’s unconditional forgiveness.
“Related to this is forgiveness of yourself and all others,
for these go hand in hand. There is much healing and cleansing contained in true forgiveness, because when you forgive others,
you also practice grace and mercy. This is very important to remember, because grace and mercy are tied together with love
and love is the ultimate energy in the universe. It is the glue that holds everything together. Good will towards each other
is love, mercy and grace in expression. This is what makes the world go round in a balancing and stabilizing fashion. In looking
around you, it does not take much to perceive how much the world is out of balance. This is also due to the negative thought-forms
being entertained by unawakened ones and the ones with less honorable intentions. Thought energy is very real and most powerful.
need to remember that when you receive mercy, you also bestow mercy upon all others, because what you send out even in thought-form,
comes back to you a thousand fold. To be gracious and merciful, means to have a loving and charitable attitude towards all
you meet. This helps clear the atmosphere which at present goes through very confusing times. They are the masses who can
control the atmosphere by their thinking. None of you have really tapped deeply into the power of your minds, so you are subject
to the whims and whiles of negative influences. Wake up to the reality that you all are much beloved children of the same
Creator and do allow Him more space in your lives so you can learn first-hand the meaning of Grace and Mercy. Does this sound
simple enough to you? Then please, think about the meaning of it all and give it strength through practice.”
