The Significance of Pentecost. The Spirit of Truth was or is the spirit bestowed by Jesus. The Urantia Book says that the Spirit of Truth is the Spirit of both the Universal Father and the Creator Son (Michael/Jesus). It’s important to note that the Creator Son is not the Eternal Son, the Second Person of the Trinity. As Catholics we say the Nicene Creed and it has a few discrepancies. But we are not meant to become conscious intellectually of the Holy Spirit, or the Eternal Son, but rather conscious of Jesus Christ, the Sovereign God of our universe. And it isn’t difficult to achieve Christ Consciousness. It just requires time and patience. But we are talking about the Spirit of Truth, which comes to lead all believers into all truth, into the expanding knowledge of the experience of the living and growing spiritual consciousness of the reality of eternal and ascending sonship with God. Even though the gospel became greatly distorted, it remains a fact that this new message about Jesus carried along with it many of the fundamental truths and teachings of his earlier gospel of the kingdom. And, sooner or later, these concealed truths of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of mortals will emerge to effectually transform the civilization of all humanity. The term “baptism of the spirit,” which came into such general use about this time, merely signified the conscious reception of this gift of the Spirit of Truth and the personal acknowledgement of this new spiritual power as an augmentation of all spiritual influences previously experienced by God-knowing souls. Since the bestowal of the Spirit of Truth, mortals are subject to the teaching and guidance of a threefold spirit endowment: the spirit of the Father, the Thought Adjuster; the spirit of the Son, the Spirit of Truth; the spirit of the Spirit, the Holy Spirit. (Personal note: I participated in the ‘charismatic renewal’ back in the 1970s, both Catholics and Protestants were into it, I had just converted, so I was gung ho). The UB says that the Holy Spirit is one of our spiritual resources. The Holy Spirit is the co-ruler of the universe, equal in every way to Michael. We can call on her if we need help. She is the offspring of the Infinite Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity……………………………….. What Happened at Pentecost. The chief mission of this outpoured spirit of the Father and the Son is to teach mortals about the Father’s love and the Son’s mercy. The Creator Son, in the flesh, revealed God to mortals; the Spirit of Truth, in the heart, reveals the Creator Son to mortals. This new religion is founded on faith, hope and love. The religion of Jesus fosters the highest type of human civilization in that it creates the highest type of spiritual personality and proclaims the sacredness of that person. The spirit guides into all truth; he is the teacher of an expanding and ever-growing religion of endless progress and divine unfolding. The gospel of the kingdom was to be identified with no particular race, culture or language. This day of Pentecost witnessed the great effort of the Spirit to liberate the religion of Jesus from its inherited Jewish fetters. The bestowal of the Spirit of Truth was independent of all forms, ceremonies, sacred places, and special behavior by those who received the fullness of its manifestation. No favorable environment is needed. Teachers of this new religion are now equipped with spiritual weapons. They are to conquer the world with unfailing forgiveness, matchless good will, and abounding love. They are equipped to overcome evil with good, to vanquish hate by love, to destroy fear with a courageous and living faith in truth. Pentecost endowed mortals with the power to forgive personal injuries, to keep sweet in the face of gravest injustice, to remain unmoved in the face of appalling danger, and to challenge the evils of hate and anger by the fearless acts of love and forbearance. After Pentecost, women stood before God on an equality with men. Women were active in the early church, but it didn’t take long for bishops to be appointed, who put them in their place.

Reptilians and Humans. Kasten goes into the traditions that have Jesus and Mary Magdalene being married. They have three children. Mary goes with two of the children to the south of France, and Jesus takes the older boy, Joseph, and travels to India. This version of the story has Jesus surviving the crucifixion. I don’t believe any of this shit, so we are going to move on. The Reptilians were trying to gain a foothold in the Catholic Church around the time Constantine converted and made Christianity a state religion. Constantine, it seems, had leprosy, and the pagan priests recommended that he bathe in the blood of infants. Reptilians are hungry for the blood of infants, especially. This would require the blood of quite a few infants. He was eventually cured by a miracle. Since the Roman church became the center of the Catholic Church, it suggests that perhaps the Brotherhood was already, at that early date (312), making preparations for centralized control of Christianity. Constantine had a vision (“In this sign conquer.”) at Milvan Bridge near Rome, which was a cross, and it enabled him to take Rome. But he was also looking at the practical aspects of adopting Christianity. His empire was falling apart, and he needed something to unify it. Constantine made the church subordinate to the state; the heads of state held all the strings of mind control through religion. This was a bold move to globalize religion and, by adding all the trappings of affluence and power to the humble teachings of Jesus, to make religion subordinate to temporal and materialistic power. Thus, one can easily discern in this the fingerprints of Brotherhood influence. Constantine was of royal blood through his mother, Helena, and so he was probably a blueblood. Constantine, moreover, decided that Jesus wasn’t the true Savior. No, that was Constantine himself!…It was Constantine who freed the Christians from all those nasty persecutions, after all. To cement this notion, he convened the Council of Nicaea in 325 to create a new dogma. The emperor was always a god, so Constantine assumed godhood. The Nicene Creed merged “God the Father with God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, and bypassed Jesus entirely as the Son of God.” Say What!? Kasten is seriously deficient when it comes to the Trinity. I’ve noticed little things, but didn’t say anything, but this is a whopper! In any case, the Trinity was established as the theoretical foundation of the Holy Roman Empire….After the death of Constantine, barbarians attacked Rome, and the bishops and pope were weakened. The Roman bishops plotted to absorb the Western kingdoms and bring them under Catholicism. In 496 King Clovis, head of the vast Frankish realms, had a battlefield conversion, similar to Constantine. Pope Anastasius baptized him and promised that the Holy Roman Empire would now become Merovingian. These kind of promises by Reptilian proteges are always broken. For more than 200 years thereafter, the popes pretended cooperation while waiting for another opportunity. The Reptilians have infinite patience. Their chance came again in the eighth century.

Reptilians and Humans. The humans invented Christianity by abducting a woman with very pure humanoid genetics, implanting her with a fetus genetically designed for a specific purpose. This woman is now known as Mary and this is why she is claimed to be a virgin. Emmanuel was the mixture of Mary and a Lyraen descendant. When he was a young man, Emmanuel was taken to the Great Pyramid to study ancient Lyraen, Atlantean and Egyptian principles for many years. He was taught ways to steer the masses away from Reptilian influences. His orders were to inculcate the 3 strains of humanity that had the purest Ari-an genetics on earth. Those were the Hebrews, created by the Sirians; the Germanic tribes, created by the Aldebarans; and the Northern Indian Ari-ans now living in the foothills of the Himalayas. All these people used a lion as their symbol and descended from the original blond-haired, blue-eyed Lyraens. Emmanuel-Jesus did his job well. He was set down in a situation where Judaism had incorporated Reptilian elements that now had to be purged. The situation included an empire with a wide range of gods and goddesses. It was necessary to propitiate these gods to ameliorate their wrath. The Federation plan was to spread the Judeo-Christian religious ethic, based on love and service to others, as the spiritual core of the new humanity that would inherit the earth. This, they believed, would counter the hybrid Reptilian beliefs in blood rituals and human sacrifice and enslavement through mind control–the system that had worked so well on thousands of other worlds… The Talmud of Emmanuel was discovered south of Jerusalem in 1963. It contains information ruinous to both Judaism and Christianity. Some of it was destroyed in a bomb assassination. I tells about Jesus as an ET. Otherwise, it follows the New Testament. Billy Meier, famous for his pictures of UFOs, has the part of the Talmud that wasn’t destroyed. God with a capital G doesn’t even appear in the Talmud. The highest word is “the great ruler of the voyagers that traveled here through vast expanses of the universe.” With a small g.

Urantia Book 122. The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua bin Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. The Ascension was rather anticlimactic. At 7:30 on May 18, Jesus and the eleven were half-way up Mt. Olivet on the western slope. The apostles were silent and bewildered. Jesus prepared to say his final words to them before leaving them. They sat in a circle around him. He said: “I am now about to take leave of you; I am about to ascend to my Father, and soon, very soon will we send into this world the Spirit of Truth; and when he has come, you will begin the new proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom, first in Jerusalem and then to the uttermost parts of the world. Love men as I have loved you and serve your fellow mortals as I have served you. By the spirit fruits of your lives impel souls to believe the truth that man is a son of God, and that all are brothers and sisters. My love overshadows you, my spirit will dwell with you, and my peace will abide upon you. Farewell….He vanished, and it was no different from the times he appeared and vanished during the 40 days during which he appeared 19 times….Jesus then went to Edentia, the HQ of the Constellation Norlatiadek, where the Most Highs released him from the morontia state and returned him to the status of Paradise Sonship and supreme sovereignty on Salvington, the universe HQ. Meanwhile, Peter gave the order to gather everyone at the Marks’ house. 120 of the important disciples gathered to hear about the Ascension. Among them was Mary, the mother of Jesus. James, the brother of Jesus, was also present at this meeting, which was the first meeting held after Jesus’ termination of his earthly career. Mathias was chosen by straw vote to replace Judas, but he never was very active in the apostolic community. Soon after Pentecost, the twins returned to their homes in Galilee. Simon Zelotes was in retirement for a long time before he went out to teach the gospel. Thomas worried for a shorter period and then went out to teach. Nathaniel differed with Peter about teaching the kingdom of heaven. He wanted to teach as Jesus taught: the kingdom of heaven, the love of God and the brotherhood of man. The disagreement became so acute that Nathaniel left for Philadelphia, staying there for a year and later going east to Mesopotamia. That left 6 apostles to carry out the plans of the Master: Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip and Matthew………….. As the believers were praying for spiritual strength to accept the Spirit, they began to feel a peculiar presence in the room. Then they became conscious of a feeling of spiritual joy, security and confidence. This new consciousness of spiritual strength was immediately followed by a strong urge to go out and publicly proclaim the gospel of the kingdom and the good news that Jesus was risen from the dead. Peter stood up and declared that this must be the Spirit of Truth which the Master had promised them and proposed that they go to the temple and begin the proclamation of the Good News committed to their hands. And that’s what they did. Now, these men had been trained to preach about the kingdom of God, kingdom of heaven, son of God, brotherhood of man, love of God for all people; the kingdom of heaven is within, that meme. But, the apostles and disciples, in a crazed condition, couldn’t think of anything but Jesus. “And so they went forth, endowed by power from on high, preaching glad tidings to the people–even salvation through Jesus–but they unintentionally stumbled into the error of substituting some of the facts associated with the gospel for the gospel message itself. Peter unwittingly led off in this mistake, and others after him on down to Paul, who created a whole new religion out of the new version of the good news” (194.0.3)

Reptilians and Humans. The Sirians from Sirius A had an agenda and, not wanting to anger the Reptilian Queens, developed a double standard. They helped the Reptilians here underground; their technology made shape-shifting possible. They also helped in the hybridization program. But they had other agendas, one of them being religion. Meanwhile, before Atlantis sunk, the Sirians followed the Atlantean migration to Egypt. They wanted to create hybrid Atlan-Sirians, which they believed would create a magnificent new race on earth. With Atlantis gone, they believed this Lyran race was the best alternative for creating civilization on earth. But they did not have Reptilian approval for this. This created race was the earliest subrace of the Hebrews. According to Kasten, the Hebrews weren’t really slaves in Egypt, but paid workers. The Egyptians also used them as foreign agents. And they were sent to Canaan to try to absorb the Canaanites into the Egyptian empire. Judaism was born from a mixture of Reptilian blood sacrifice and of Egyptian/Atlantean/Sirian beliefs. The story of Abraham being asked to sacrifice his own son is an indication that the Hebrews were a step up from other tribes in the area. The dispersion of the Jews from Egypt throughout the Middle East was based on a deliberate fast-track plan to spread the new religion and its practices in those areas. It was intended that Judaism would become the universal religion of the new humanity. “The Middle East became a focal point for the Sirians and the Reptilians. Together, they generated a new version of religion and culture for ease of global control and domination. What better way to do that than by programming a race of nomadic people that would carry the religion and culture everywhere on Earth” (Swerdlow). Moses communicated with the Sirians from the top of Mt. Sinai; he received the Ten Commandments, which was engraved in crystals. The so-called manna was full of protein and nutritious. The Ark of the Covenant was a electro-magnetic receiver and highly charged, so the priests had to wear gloves when handling it. But people were killed because they didn’t know this. According to Swerdlow, Sodom and Gomorrah were bombed by atom bombs because the inhabitants’ homosexual practices had brought on the AIDS virus, which had to be contained. Sitchen also says that the two cities were destroyed by atom bombs, but in his version it was because of an Anunnaki family war.

Urantia Book 121. The Life and Teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua bin Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. Early in the morning, May 18, Jesus made his last appearance on earth as a morontia personality. He appeared in the Upper room as the apostles were about to eat breakfast. He said: “Peace be upon you. I have asked you to stay here in Jerusalem until I ascend to the Father, also until I send you the Spirit of Truth, who shall soon be poured out upon all flesh, and who shall endow you with power from on high.” Simon Zelotes interrupted Jesus, asking: “Then, Master, will you restore the kingdom, and will we see the glory of God manifested on earth?” When Jesus had listened to Simon’s question, he answered: “Simon, you still cling to the old ideas about the Jewish Messiah and the material kingdom. But you will receive spiritual power after the Spirit has descended upon you, and you will presently go into all the world preaching this gospel of the kingdom. As the Father sent me into the world, so I send you. And I wish that you would love and trust each other. Judas is no longer with us because his love grew cold, and because he refused to trust you, his loyal brethren. The scriptures say, ‘It is not good for man to be alone. No man lives to himself.’ It also says, ‘He who would have friends must show himself friendly.'” At this point the narrator goes on to analyze the reasons for Judas’ downfall. 1. Judas was an individualist and unsociable person. 2. As a child, he had been given whatever he wanted and would act out if thwarted. 3. He never developed a way to handle disappointments of life. He blamed others when things went wrong. 4. He held grudges and nursed revenge. 5. He did not like to face facts frankly; this made him dishonest in life situations. 6. He didn’t like confiding in other people. Not once in their time together did he come to Jesus with a personal problem. 7. He never learned that the real rewards for noble living are, after all, spiritual prizes, which are not always distributed during this one short life in the flesh….As a result of his persistent isolation of personality, his griefs multiplied, his sorrows increased, his anxieties augmented, and his despair deepened almost beyond endurance. While this self-centered, individualistic apostle had many psychic, emotional, and spiritual troubles, his main difficulties were: In personality he was isolated. In mind he was suspicious and vengeful. In temperament, he was surly and vindictive. Emotionally, he was loveless and unforgiving. Socially, he was unconfiding and self-contained. In spirit, he was arrogant and selfishly ambitious. In life he ignored those who loved him and in death he was friendless. These are the factors of mind and influences of evil, which, taken together, explain why a well-meaning and onetime sincere believer in Jesus, even after several years of intimate association with his transforming personality, forsook his fellows, repudiated a sacred cause, renounced his holy calling, and betrayed his divine Master.

Reptilians and Humans. Those who live in the underground empire built by their ancestors are called by many names: the SHET-I, the HEN-T, the Shemsu Hor, the Reptilians, the lizards, the hybrids, the Dow, the Brotherhood of the Snake, the Babylonian Brotherhood, and most recently, the Greys. Their ancestors, the Draco, built miles of tunnels with maglev trains able to go anywhere on earth in hours. Now that they are independent of all rulership, they have formed a type of hierarchical brotherhood based on group consciousness and are fundamentally democratic. They live in large cities, and their capital is still the city of Bhogovita; it is 7 levels and it is very deep below the Indian subcontinent. They have technology superior to our conventional technology, but probably on a par with technology we’ve received from our ET friends. These were the craft that were sent out to impress the Pharaoh Thutmose III, and the craft that Admiral Byrd confronted when he tried to remove the Nazis from Antarctica: Operation Highjump 1947. From the underground civilization come spaceships that go into deep space of just to Mars. Those ships are also involved with the abductions of millions of humans. Some of the Greys probably have hybridization programs in process and they are looking more and more like humans, so they can pass without a problem. Their programs in genetics and biochemistry are superior and have been channeled through “Big Pharma” making their puppets, the Illuminati, reap tremendous riches. They lost the ability to sexually reproduce a long time ago, so now they mostly use cloning, and they are experts at that, too. They also have the ability to alter and wipe clean human memories and to transfer human consciousness from one body to another. These abilities were perfected eons ago by the queens’ scientists…..Kasten says their most formidable talent is their ability to mentally increase their vibratory rate, allowing them to inhabit the lower fourth dimension, in which they are invisible to human perception. This allows them to contact and influence humans in dream states and go easily through solid walls during abductions. This lower region of the astral realm is inhabited by spiritually retarded human souls, as well as demonic entities. That’s why its referred to frequently as “hell” (Swerdlow). All forms of black magic originate in this realm. This is one reason for their power over the human race. But because of the potentially great power of the human soul, we are rapidly catching up. Knowing this, they seek to keep us in a state of low consciousness and reliant on superstition in order to maintain their control over us. They accomplish this mainly through religion. It has the affect of maintaining a subdued and guilt-prone populace that is unlikely to challenge the puppets they have placed in political power. They adapt easily to new religions and twist them to their ends. Religion is only for the masses; they have other forms of mind control. They seek bluebloods, those with a high component of Reptilian DNA. These people also tend to be in positions of authority. All the members of the former European royalty are bluebloods, as are the heads of corporations and other institutions. These people are the products of thousands of years of genetic manipulation. Those who have 50% Reptilian DNA are considered to be Illuminati. All the top bankers, clergy, statesmen, and CEOs are in this category. These people are the most vulnerable to Brotherhood mind control and demonic influence from the astral realm. While much of their control occurs through the dreamscape, they have special mind control for the millions of abductees.

Urantia Book 120. The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua bin Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. On Sunday, April 22, Jesus assembled his apostles and they knelt in a circle around him. It was his 14th morontia appearance. He reenacted the ordination scene, but the Master’s prayer was different. Now he prayed in tones of majesty and with words of power such as the apostles had never heard. Jesus now spoke with the rulers of the universes as one who, in his own universe, had had all power and authority committed to his hand. After he took an affectionate farewell to them, he vanished. He disappeared for a full weak. He was conducting business with the morantia creatures on the earth and transitioning from one level to the next. People all over Galilee were hearing about the resurrection of Jesus and coming to see for themselves. So, Peter sent out word that a public meeting would be held on the next Sabbath at 3 pm. Accordingly, more than 500 people gathered on Saturday, April 29, to hear Peter give his first public sermon since the resurrection. Peter was at his best, and when he was finished, few people doubted that Jesus had risen from the grave. Peter ended his sermon, saying: “We affirm that Jesus of Nazareth is not dead; we declare that he has risen from the tomb; we proclaim that we have seen him and talked to him.” Just as he finished making this declaration of faith, there by his side, in full view of all those people, the Master appeared in morontia form and, speaking to them in familiar accents, said: “Peace be upon you, and my peace I leave with you.” And then he vanished, having made his fifteenth appearance in front of over 500 people. Early next day the apostles left Bethsaida for Jerusalem. They did much preaching and teaching on their way, so they arrived late on Wednesday, May 3. They made the Marks’ Upper Room their HQ while they awaited developments. On Thursday night the apostles had a wonderful meeting, and all pledged themselves to go forth in the public preaching of the new gospel of the risen Lord except Thomas, Simon Zelotes, and the Alpheus twins. Already they had begun the first steps of changing the gospel of the kingdom–sonship with God and brotherhood with man– into the proclamation of the resurrection of Jesus. Nathaniel opposed this shift in the burden of their public message, but he could not withstand Peter’s eloquence, neither could he overcome the enthusiasm of the apostles, especially the women believers. And so, under the vigorous leadership of Peter and before the Master ascended to the Father, his well-meaning representatives began that subtle process of gradually and certainly changing the religion OF Jesus into a new and modified form of religion ABOUT Jesus…… The sixteenth appearance occurred in the courtyard of Nicodemus. It was about 9 pm and those assembled there were the apostles, the women’s corps and their associates, about 50 other leading disciples, including a number of the Greeks. As soon as he appeared, the Master began to instruct them, saying: “Peace be upon you. Witness that I told you beforehand that my presence among you must come to an end; I told you I must return to the Father. And I plainly warned you that the rulers of the Jews would put me to death, and then I would rise from the grave. Why were you so surprised when you heard that I was risen from the grave? You failed to believe my because you heard my words without understanding their meaning. Now, don’t make the mistake again of hearing my words, but not understanding them. Remember that your mission among humans is to preach the gospel of the kingdom–the reality of the Fatherhood of God and the truth of the children of God. Go forth preaching the love of God and the service of all brothers and sisters. Love all people as I have loved you; serve your fellow mortals as I have served you. Freely you have received, freely give. Stay in Jerusalem until I go to the Father, and then I will send the Spirit of Truth. He shall lead you into the enlarged truth, and I will go with you into all the world. I am with you always, and my peace I leave with you”(192-193).

Reptilians and Humans. Kasten says the obelisks may have served another purpose. They may have been phallic symbols of male power all over the globe. Lord Ra, with the approval of the SSA-TA rebel Queens, began to systematically remove all traces of a Mother Goddess presence. Henceforth, the Omnipotent One was a male-the Sun God Ra himself. Males would dominate every aspect of life; it was time for females to relinquish their exalted place of power. We are meant perhaps to be reminded of this change of power by seeing these towers all over the globe. There is a half finished obelisk at Baalbek estimated to be 1800 tons. It is called the Stone of the Pregnant Woman because a woman could touch the stone and become pregnant. Or Not. The temple complex goes back to the arrival of the Martians in 5000 BCE, even before Marduk arrived. The name, Baalbek means that the complex was there for the worship of the god Baal. The Romans built a temple of Jupiter on the huge plaza that exists on the site. To make sure the human slave knew nothing of the outside world or anything that could make life better, the SHET-I closed off all sources of information and scholarship. Historical clay tablets were destroyed; Marduk destroyed the records of the previous civilization. This, together with the electronic blanket, kept the human race in a state of ignorance and virtual, if not actual enslavement. This policy established precedents that remain in force even today, despite liberal universities and the Internet. Even in the American fortress of freedom, people are ridiculed for discussing conspiracies, and the pressure to remain politically correct is enormous. Marduk was not the one who had the real power in his vast empire, and he knew it. The power belonged to the SHET-I. Marduk tried to forge an alliance with the Sirian Empire, but it was too late. The inevitable happened; there was a quiet and bloodless coup overnight and that was that. But Marduk still had to be caught. Some say he was imprisoned in the Great Pyramid. That would tally with Sitchen’s research. In Sitchen’s works Marduk is set free after a short time because his relatives are worried about him. Kasten says he fled back to his home, the Sirian star system. This took place in the second century BC. ******** The Pharaoh Thutmose III was helped by aliens flying over Egypt. He became a great warrior and became very rich. The aliens were called the Shemsu Hor and they took the pharaoh onto a space ship and told him about the mysteries of space. He came to believe he was dealing with the gods. Thutmose started military campaigns in which he took cities, villages and entire kingdoms, from southern Syria to Nubia. He introduced the use of horse drawn chariots in warfare; and by carrying boats over-land he was able to attack coastal cities. Kasten says his mummy was below 5 feet in length, suggesting that he may have been a hybrid. The aliens certainly targeted him for some reason. The Brotherhood of the Snake, operating through the Amun priesthood, instituted a currency of gold and silver to replace the barter system. This permitted the use of a central banking system to control the expanding economy. By this means they are able to reward their friends and bring them to power by financing huge enterprises, while eliminating their adversaries through the tightening of funds. This is a hallmark of Reptilian control. The Reptilians profit from war from both sides of the conflict, and it lowers the population. The survivors of the war come to borrow even more money and the Reptilians grant their wish–at a price.

Urantia Book 119. The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua bin Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. Jesus made his twelfth morontia appearance in Alexandria, Egypt. He appeared to Rodan and some eighty other believers. He said: “Peace be upon you. The kingdom belongs not to one nation, race, nor to a special group of teachers. This gospel of the kingdom belongs to both Jew and Gentile, to rich and poor, to free and bond, to male and female, even to children. When people see how fervently you love and serve them, they will know that you have become followers of the kingdom of heaven, and they will become followers of the Spirit of Truth, which they see in your lives, to the finding of eternal salvation. This gospel of the kingdom belongs to all who believe it; it shall not be committed to the custody of mere priests. Soon will the Spirit of Truth come upon you, and he shall lead you to all truth. Go you, therefore, into all the world, preaching this gospel, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the ages.” And then he vanished. (191.6).********************************* The Jewish rulers thought the gospel movement was crushed, but they bribed the guards to say the body was stolen by Jesus’ followers. By common consent Peter was the leader of the apostle corps; he was the main preacher of the group. From now on public preaching became the main business of the apostles. They chose Matthias to take the place of Judas. On Friday morning, April 21 the morontia Master made his thirteenth appearance. He was in Galilee cooking for the apostles while they were returning from fishing having caught nothing. He told them where they could catch fish, and they ended with a huge catch. As soon as Peter found out Jesus was standing on the shore, he impetuously jumped into the water and swam to shore and kneeling at Jesus’ feet, said, “My Lord and my Master!” After breakfast Jesus took two apostles and walked and talked with them. First, he took Peter and John, saying to John: “John, do you love me?” When John answered: “Yes, Master, with all my heart,” the Master said: “Then, John, give up your intolerance and learn to love people as I have loved you. It is the love of God that impels people to seek salvation.” Jesus then turned to Peter and asked: “Peter, do you love me?” Peter answered: “Lord, you know I love you with all my soul.” Then Jesus said: “If you love me, Peter, feed my lambs. Do not neglect to minister to the weak, the poor and the young. Forgive your fellow mortals as I have forgiven you. Let experience teach you the value of meditation and the power of intelligent reflection.” Walking a little further, Jesus turned again to Peter and asked: “Peter, do you really love me?” To which Peter answered: “Yes, Master, you know that I love you.” Jesus said: “Then take good care of my sheep. Be a good and true shepherd to the flock. Be on guard at all times–watch and pray.” After a few more steps, Jesus turned to Peter for the third time and said: “Peter, do you truly love me?” And then Peter, being slightly grieved at the Master’s seeming distrust of him said, with great feeling: “Lord, you know all things and, therefore, you know that I really and truly love you.” Then Jesus said: “Feed my sheep. Do not forsake the flock. Be an example and an inspiration to all your fellow shepherds. Love the flock as I have loved you and devote yourself to their welfare even as I have devoted myself to your welfare. And follow after me even to the end.” Peter, as usual, misunderstood Jesus’ words. He wondered what John would do if only he, Peter, followed Jesus. It is actually humorous after awhile. And then all the apostles thought that John would live long enough to see Jesus come back! The humor of this had much to do with getting Simon Zelotes back and working with them. Simon had been so disappointed that not even the Resurrection was enough to bring him out of his depression, so he had gone home. Next, Jesus went for a walk and talk with Andrew and James. After a few steps, Jesus said to Andrew: “Andrew, do you trust me?” Andrew, chief of apostles, stood still and answered: “Yes, Master, of a certainty, I trust you, and you know that I do.” So Jesus said: “Andrew, if you trust me, trust your brethren more–even Peter. I once trusted you with the leadership of your brethren. Now you must trust others as I leave you to go to the Father. When your brethren begin to scatter abroad because of bitter persecutions, be a considerate and wise counselor to James my brother in the flesh when they put heavy burdens on him which he is not qualified by experience to bear. And then go on trusting, for I will not fail you. When you are through on earth, you shall come to me.” Jesus told James to cultivate patience. Next he walked and talked with Thomas and Nathaniel. He said to Thomas, “Thomas, do you serve me?” To which he replied, “Yes, Lord, I serve you now and always.” Jesus said: ” Thomas, you must cease doubting; you must grow in faith and in the knowledge of truth. Believe in God like a child, but cease to act so childish. Be strong in faith and mighty in the kingdom of God. When you are finished your service for me on earth, you shall serve with me in glory.” Then Jesus said to Nathaniel: “Nathaniel, do you serve me?” To which he replied: “Yes, Master, and with an undivided affection.” So Jesus instructed him: “If you serve me with a whole heart, make sure that you are devoted to the welfare of my brethren on earth with tireless affection. Mix friendship with your counsel and love with your philosophy. Be less critical; expect less of some men and thereby lessen the extent of your disappointment. And when the work down here is over, you will serve with me on high.”
