What is Saving Grace?
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
Today we would like to talk about “Saving Grace.” What exactly is Saving Grace? Is it a real process—something that can be understood? Is it attainable by anyone at any time? Are there some magical words that must be spoken? Must you join some religious group and follow some creed or perform some ritual to attain it? There has been much confusion on your world about this rite of passage to eternal life and it reveals itself in many forms, many ways, and is always the one thing that will always be remembered for all eternity—the moment you realize that you ARE the child of the One True God.
There will come a time in the life of all men and women on your world where Saving Grace becomes an opportunity for discovery. It presents itself as a choice and is something that must be willfully acknowledged as a crossroads from a state of unknowing to knowing with assurance that God is a reality and that you are the child of this Creator Father who patiently waits for you to awaken into the eternal now and receive the gift of life everlasting and become co-creators with God.
Saving Grace is a doorway that is open to all and it requires no ceremony, no understanding of ecclesiastical law, religion, or creed, but it does require that you recognize the door and walk through it. Saving Grace is never accepted out of fear or by the recitation of a prayer led by others, but is something very personal—it is the moment of true contact with the Indwelling God that is only attainable by willful acknowledgement of this supernal connection with spiritual realities. It is the supreme decision to consecrate your will to be led by a higher power to become something greater that what you are today. This, my friends, is the dawning moment of perfection hunger—to seek the path that leads to the Source of all creation.
Those that deny the sovereignty of God and His authority as the creator of all things and beings, will be given more opportunities to see His hand at work, but after all opportunities and mercy offers have been willingly rejected, those souls, of their own volition, have made the choice to relinquish the offer for eternal life and they place themselves at the bar of the super-universe administrators for final adjudication—the cessation of identity. This is most unfortunate and sounds frightening to most, but this becomes a willful decision by the individual and not a punishment by the all loving God of creation—it is the final act of free will and it is respected above all things.
Those that are unsure of God’s existence, but wish to continue life beyond this world are at least on the road to discovering the Divine Presence and open to the possibilities that they can become more than what the world of material logic says is possible. The unfortunate thing for some is that they search for much of their material lives looking everywhere but to the Source for this answer to the question about life itself, for it is God’s intention for you to know Him and begin the journey to perfection now in this life, preparing for the next, where you transition into greater understanding and experiences that transcend this physical life and reveal a grandeur of sublimity—an expanding universe of God’s divine glory that was put in place for the eternal adventures of His beloved children—to know Him, to become like Him, and to live forever.
Peace to you,
