Living history continues with the 2015 Messenger’s Vigil. This is an annual event celebrated by the New Message from God community during the last week in January. Both Douglas and I have shared our experiences of last year’s Messenger’s Vigil here and here.
I am happy to say that, this year too, I was able to attend all seven broadcasts live, despite the time difference – early evening in Boulder, CO is early morning in Moscow, Russia. There is a palpable energy and feeling of connection with the worldwide community that I experience when watching and listening to these broadcasts live. The early predawn hours are a special time for me anyway, when all is quiet and the house still sleeps, but I am awake and receptive to the stillness and silence. I was very grateful for this precious time.
In this post, I would like to briefly recap the seven broadcasts and share a particular thought or words that spoke to me deeply each day.
January 22, 2015 Opening Broadcast hosted by Ellen Mitchell and Ayesha Summers.
A special feature of this broadcast was listening for the first time to “The Messenger’s Calling,” a revelation received by Marshall Vian Summers on September 3, 2014. It begins at the 49.20 mark in the video.
We were invited the first day to explore our personal relationship with the Messenger.
Ellen said, “We need to know if we have a relationship with this man, and that knowing needs to come from inside of each of us.”
This is not an answer that can be handed to us from the outside, it needs to be experienced and known on the inside.
This resonated with me–the need for this answer to come from the inside. I continue to be attentive to the inner prompts I receive.
January 23, 2015 The Origins and Lineage of God’s Messenger hosted by Carol Coffey and Robert Busbey.
Robert shared that the Revelation is telling us where the Messenger has come from, his origin, who he is, what he is.This has never been revealed to the public before, yet now it is. And he asked a pertinent question, “Why now?”
“How great the consequences must be now for this to be revealed by the Source of the New Message. I can’t help but feel what great trust they must have in us now, to open up like that to us, for us to hear this and for us to be open enough to receive this. Can we?”
Can we indeed. I believe we can, for we must.
January 24, 2015 The Story of the Messenger hosted by Darlene Mitchell and Ana Burrows.
Darlene opened the broadcast by saying that everyone has gathered to celebrate, there is a New Message from God in the world, we are all living in a time of revelation. This is living history.
She said, “The Messenger’s Vigil allows us to have time together, to pause and to collect our experiences around these three facts – see who this man is to us, what his message means to us, and what we mean to him and his message.”
Three probing things to consider. This is the essence of the Vigil and its meaning – not just to listen to what other people are saying, but to really think about what it means to me, why I am here, why I feel drawn to attend the broadcasts every day, what I am experiencing inside, the connection I feel with the other people responding, what does it all mean?
January 25, 2015 The Qualities and Traits of the Messenger hosted by Tyyne Andrews and Will Burrows.
Will read some excerpts from one of the revelations about who the Messenger is.
One of them said, “He is a man. He is not a god. He is fallible, but he is perfectly designed for this role, and he requires your assistance and support.”
Am I ready to accept this?
January 26, 2015 The Mission and the Burden of the Messenger hosted by Robert Busbey and Jeanine Butler.
Robert shared, “Millions of people are waiting for the New Message, millions of people are waiting to be found. The mission of the messenger is to establish God’s Revelation here sufficiently in his remaining years so that humanity can begin to prepare for a changing world and prepare for its engagement with the Greater community itself.”
“What must the Messenger do to bring this Revelation into the world? How will the Messenger do this? How many must assist him to do this? Hundreds, thousands? More? What must they do? Who are they? Are you one of them? How will you know?”
I am considering these questions. How indeed will I know? I know now that I am drawn to do certain things, while other things fall away. I know now that I feel an inner joy and peace that I have not experienced before. I will continue exploring to know more.
January 27, 2015 The Future and Destiny of the Messenger hosted by Ana and Will Burrows.
Ana said, “It is the Messenger’s destiny to bring the New Message from God into the world, it is the world’s destiny to emerge into the Greater Community as a free and self-determined race, it is our destiny to be a force for good in the world in concert with other people. Destiny is everything.”
It is my destiny to be a force for good in the world in concert with other people. Can I fulfill my destiny? I am going to give it my best shot.
January 28, 2015 Final Broadcast hosted by Patricia and Reed Summers.
It is time to bring the Messenger out into the world and for the Voice of Revelation to be heard in the world. This is the purpose of the Messenger’s Vigil.
And living history continues. The Summers just returned from journeying out into the world to walk among the people and talk to the people in different lands. During this journey, Marshall received eight more revelations. Reed lists them in this broadcast. He concluded this inventory by saying that the revelations have been “captured in audio form and will be preserved for all generations down through time.” What is this if not living history?
The highlight of this final broadcast was a personal message from Marshall Vian Summers, which begins at the 57.25 mark in the video. Douglas writes in more detail about this message here.
I will just say that what struck me most were these words:
“How God regards you is so very different from how you regard yourself and others, and throughout the Revelation is this regard for you, that you’re really worth something, that you are important, that your life is a meaningful event, with a purpose and a destiny—not your purpose and destiny—a purpose and a destiny.”
Let us all be part of this living history, this purpose and destiny. Let those who are already responding and those who will respond (and I have no doubts that they will) join to form the force of good in the world that will raise humanity above its current trials and tribulations to emerge into the Greater Community with its freedom intact and with the gift of Knowledge reclaimed and ready to be given further.
