Heavenly Father l ask for peace for Jerusalem

Robin Graham

When the children of earth look away from Love, they deliberately and consciously are choosing the experience of chaos. Whoever seeks to exist without Love cannot survive long anywhere in creation. Such efforts are bound to bring failure, misery and dissolution. Whatever lacks Love must return to chaos, the unformed, so its substance may be used again in combination with Love, and thus produce a new and perfect form.

This is the Law of Universal as well as individual Life. It is Immutable, Irrevocable, Eternal, yet Beneficient: for creation in form exists that God may have something upon which to pour out Love and so express in action. This is the Law of the Mighty One from which all else proceeds. It is the Mandate of Eternity, and the “vast and brilliance” of that Perfection cannot be described in words.

If there were not these actual, real, permanent and perfect conditions of Life and experience which far transcend human description, existence would be but a travesty upon the stupendous activity of Life that swings forever throughout creation. There are those higher, harmonious, Transcendent Spheres, realms of activity and consciousness-individual and cosmic- where creation goes on continually in Joy, in Love, in Freedom, and in Perfection. These are real-real-real and much more permanent than your bodies and buildings in the physical world about you. These Realms of Life are created of Substance which is so charged with Love that they can never have a quality or activity of discord, imperfection or disintegration imposed upon them or registered with them. Because they are based upon Love, the Perfection of such a manifestation is forever maintained, ever active, ever expanding, ever blessing with joy all that exists.

You bring woe upon yourselves which propels you into embodiment again and again in the ignorance of the senses, the human appetites and desires of the outer self. These appetites in the feeling nature of mankind are in themselves but an accumulation of energy which the individual through his thought and feeling has given a quality of one kind or another. This misqualified energy gathers a momentum through human expression and becomes a habit. Habit is but energy specifically qualified and held focused for a time upon one objective. The sense appetites of former lives become the driving forces and habits of the succeeding ones, keeping you slaves bound to the chariot wheels of discord, lack, and necessity, whirling you through a maze of human problems and experiences of your own creation, compelling you to learn and obey the Law of the One – Love.

Your own miscreations drive you on and on and on until you are willing to understand Life and obey Its One Law-Love. This is a compelling activity which none escape, and it continues until the outer self asks the reason for its misery and understands that its release from the experience of suffering can only come through obedience to the Law of Love. Such obedience begins as calm peace and kindliness in the feelings, whose center is in the “heart.” Its contact with the outer world must come through the Inner Feeling. Love is not an activity of the mind, but is the Pure and Luminous Essence which creates mind. This Essence from the Great God Flame streams into substance and constantly pours Itself out as perfection in form and action. Love is Perfection manifest. It can only express peace, joy and an outpouring of those feelings to all creation -unconditionally. It asks nothing for Itself because It is Eternally Self-Creating, being the Heartbeat of the Supreme. Love owns ALL and is only concerned with setting the Plan of Perfection into action in all. Thus It is a constant pouring out of Itself. It takes no cognizance of what has been given in the past, but receives Its joy and maintains Its balance by the continual Outstreaming of Itself. Because this Perfection is within Love forever flowing forth, it is incapable of recording anything but Itself.

Love alone is the basis of harmony and the right use of all Life energy. In human experience, this grows into a desire to give and give and give of all the individual’s peace and harmony unto the rest of creation. SELAH

I have been praying this song for months that the spirit of the Lord would flow through this land and bring Light and Truth to the people. May His Word flow freely and “flood” this nation!

I love to worship alone or together. And I think God for all the leaders in this land in church and out in the streets who are lifting up the praises of God. It makes a perfect place to pray for what He wants. Glory.

Lord, flood our nation with grace and mercy. In particular, I lift up the state of California, the state of New York, and the city of Portland, Oregon. So much darkness in these places, Lord! I pray for a miraculous revival to sweep through these places and that Your light will shine there. May Your Holy Spirit break down the evil that has a stranglehold on those places and, may Your light pour from one end of our nation to the other.
