This message is for all even though you may not be Christian.
Do you think I care if you celebrate Christmas? It was not a holiday of my choosing nor was it really in honor of me. It was a falsehood. But, that matters not.
It does not matter the original intent, but for those who celebrate my birth, I thank you. It is a holiday and tradition like many others, created with mixed intent.
What serves me, however, is that you celebrate your love and light at this time. Enjoy the light pouring into the planet at this time to lift you up.
Do not use this time to think of what you have or don’t have. What you are getting or missing out on. Think clearly of your motives. What are you celebrating and why? Are you doing things out of obligation? Why? What are you avoiding or gaining?
Are you living your truth? Are you having fun? Fun is underrated. If you aren’t having fun, create something fun at all times but especially for these upcoming holidays. The more fun you have, the more light you have and can share.
This is the time of light. Hanukkah is a time of light. You can light a candle each day and think of me remembering that I was and still am considered Jewish.
I didn’t convert. I am what I am. I am one with God and at no time needed a religion to be one with God. Nor do you. But if it helps brings you closer to God as it should, by all means relish the ritual, enjoy your traditions. But, remember this, it is the relationship you have with God that matters and not the religion. God lives within each of you equally no matter what you practice. If your practice includes love, you are allowing God to express throughout you and you become a gift of God to the world.
So this holiday season, express your gift of love to all. For all need more love. The more love you share with your fellow man, the more love and light will be demonstrated and experienced in the world.
That my dear friends is the greatest gift of all.
After sharing the message by Jesus I channeled stating God did not ask Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, I received mixed response. Many people responded to how that made sense because they found it difficult to accept that God would ask someone to kill their own child.
Others, who have accepted the story in the Bible that it was God who asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, questioned the accuracy.
I thought rather than figure out how to adequately respond, I thought I would ask God directly.
Being someone who is a multi-dimensional channel, I know it is possible to receive messages from more than just the light and that the dark can mask itself as light. I have been fortunate to always have colleagues with similar gifts who can confirm my accuracy. It reassured me over the years but especially in the beginning when I was new to these gifts. After channeling over 20 years, I can also tell the difference in their energies, words, approach, etc. But, regardless, when the information is significant such as this, I want to still confirm with others. It was reassuring to have confirmation from a colleague as to accuracy. I was also told these are important messages for you.
This is the response from God when I asked him about my experience clearing the story of Abraham and Isaac:
You have been troubled for a long time as to my dictates, requests and requirements of my people. I say this unto you. It is not my intent to have anyone killed. It goes against everything that I believe in and hold dear.
There is a reason I dictated “Thou shall not kill.”
It is not for you or anyone else to kill another. There is no excuse worthy of destroying a life I have given.
I am not saying, however, it inappropriate to save your own life or a life of another that someone else is trying to kill. Defending the life I have given you is not improper.
What I deem to do here, however, is to correct some misgivings about an historical event that has wrecked havoc on mankind for an eternity. It has brought up many doubts and concerns about whether or not I am a loving God and how could I ask my son to give up the life of his own son.
My dear children, hear me clearly. I did not, in fact, ask Abraham to give up his son, Isaac, as a test to me. He was, in fact, being tested and tempted by Satan. The way of the times were of sacrifice. It was a pagan ritual not of my choosing.
I did not need to test his loyalty to me. I knew Abraham’s heart. His heart was pure as were his intentions and commitment to me. He sometimes faltered as do all humans at times. Be not afraid of faltering if the intent is pure. Judge not others for their faltering as they do the best they sometimes can do under circumstances you cannot fathom.
It is the pure at heart that matters to me. How pure is your heart? That is what should matter to you. Work on that and that alone and leave what others do or don’t do to me for I care for you equally.
I have yearned for the day when there is peace and understanding on this planet. The time has come for you to lay down your swords and live in peace. Let go of your judgments and differences. Let go of the ideals of what you believe to be true. Not everything is as it seems. It is time to live in peace. But peace doesn’t happen outside of you. It comes from within you.
Those of you with your religious differences fighting for a cause. Those causes do not matter as much as your ideas about them. Let them go. You are only fighting with yourself. You believe what you believe. But do you know for sure what you believe is the absolute truth?
It is time you lived with peace within your own household. How much fighting do you do within your own household because someone else doesn’t meet your own ideals?
How much turmoil do you express because you don’t meet your own ideals?
Why are your ideals so important to you? It is your ideals that are getting you into trouble. You are fighting for ideals that were set down before you and you don’t even know how or why. You carry on traditions that mattered to someone a long time ago but do they matter in the scheme of things?
It is you and your ideals that are keeping you in stress, maintaining you in anger, fighting against the flow, what is and not allowing you to just be and enjoy yourself on the planet as you should.
Could you imagine a world that lives in peace? What would it be like? You would feel safe for one. You would feel enough for another.
Peace, however, begins within. Trying to fight yourself or another for your causes only perpetuates the problem. It does not resolve it.
You need to take a stand and make a decision that you want peace in your life and you have to make the commitment to live in peace, express peace and cause the experience of peace to reign throughout your life.
Why leave it to someone outside of yourself to bring peace into your world and into your own life? Why not create it for yourself and your family and those that you care about?
Why perpetuate an idea of fighting for peace that will never succeed. If you want peace, you must choose peace. Fighting for peace doesn’t create it. It causes more violence. It’s only another form of struggle. Give up the struggle. Accept. Accept what is. Accept who you are. Relax. Be. Be yourself. Stop trying to be someone else or someone else’s ideals because that alone is not peaceful. Accepting yourself as you are is peaceful.
Start with yourself. How can you bring more peace into your world? Stop worrying about the world outside of yourself for a change. Think of yourself. Are you living peacefully? Are you treating others peacefully?
Do you honor yourself and others as you should? Are you imposing yourself on others trying to make others adhere to your standards of being? Why not allow them freedom to be themselves? Let go of your fears. There are many. Many more than you can imagine but you are too busy running around to realize them all. Stop. Be. Live in peace. Honor yourself and others. Live in peace and be an example of peace to others.
Peace be with you.
The time has come for me to be taken down from the cross and let that lifetime go. We all need to move on and live the life we are to live today. I appreciate being honored. You must realize, however, that circumstances are not always what they seem. Leaving me up on the cross to remember a time long gone actually holds you all back in some regard or another. I appreciate being revered but it is not necessary. What you need do is honor yourself as you do me. That is what is most important.
Please take me down from the cross and allow me to rest in peace. By reliving that experience, you keep it alive in me. What I would like do is move beyond that experience to peace.
Being reminded of crucifixion solves nothing. Crucifixion is a horrible thing as is all torture to another human being.
By letting go of the past, you allow more peace to emerge in your life. By living in peace, you allow more peace to emerge in your life and the lives of others.
I ask you to live in peace and to not continue to relive torture and degradation.
Many of the concerns today about the future lies in a lack of belief in themselves and the God that created them. They are being tested today to see who is fit for heaven on earth and who is not. Not all will be chosen. It is, however, up to those who wish to be here to experience heaven on earth to accept God wholly and completely knowing their relationship to him.
Heaven on earth has nothing to do with religion. It doesn’t matter how religious you are. It matters what is in your heart and how you live and how you treat one another. Do you treat yourself and others with dignity?
Do you honor who you are and treat others as you see fit, judging them worthy or not, or do you treat them with honor as a fellow human being?
These are the issues you are tested on, not whether you go to your place of worship weekly or daily.
It is what is in you heart. It is how you are and treat one another.
The time has come for all mankind to wake up. They have been asleep far too long. They are craving for answers and relief from their misery but where do they look? They look to alcohol, sugar, spending money, their loved ones, their religion. They think if they work harder or cry for help harder, they will get answers or the relief they seek. But what they are missing is God. They are missing their true connection to God. God is within each and every one of us, believers and non believers, sinners and non sinners alike.
What people are missing is a vital piece of themselves. Their God selves. God is at the essence of each and everyone but they are missing that piece by looking outside of themselves. God is not sitting up on a cloud far above reach. God is within each and every one of you.
So what is the trouble you ask. The trouble is you miss it. You miss the connection because you look outside of yourselves rather than within. If you look within, you will find the answers you seek to all your troubles.
Those that feel lack are experiencing a lack of God and their connection to God. Their God is missing from the equation because they miss their connection to God. When they are one with God, they are one with all things. When they separate from God, they are separate from all things. God is one with all; therefore, all are one with all when they are connected.
How do we disconnect? We disconnect by not believing in ourselves and in our God. We disconnect when we look outside of ourselves for answers. We disconnect when we do something man’s way versus God’s way. We always have choice. It is up to each and every one of us to choose God or not.
Do you think you know better than God, your creator? If so, continue doing what you are doing and see where that gets you. It is up to you. You have free will and you have choice. It is always your choice.
What I come to say to you is this. You do not have to struggle. You do not have to experience lack of any kind. You can have peace and happiness and joy beyond all measure.
It is your choice. It is up to you. If you choose God, you will have those things. If you do not, you will not. It is simple, very simple.
That is all for today.
Michael, the Archangel
