Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Forgive and Forget”.
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “Misunderstandings are prone to arise in human relationships. The reason for this is always a lack of love, and the limited point of view of both parties, for no one fully comprehends the joys and sorrows, the plans and the ideals, in another’s heart.
Words can be well meaning to one person and demeaning and destructive to the other. It is by trial and error that human understanding grows, and insights come, leading to wisdom.
Your Master Jesus never wearied of saying: ‘Forgive and forget.’ So, may I remind you that as long as you do not forget it has not been forgiven. Therefore, it is not seven times, but seventy times seven, ad-infinitum, and until it is totally forgotten.
Remember how Jesus, while hanging on the cross, said, ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ Such a great love and pity He had for His mortal, spiritually blind children who did not accept His simple message, that God is a God of love. Unwittingly, in their madness, they visited their unjust and cruel punishment upon Him by nailing the most beloved Creator of a universe to a piece of wood. In His agony, Jesus still prayed for them. Since then, your world is known throughout all creation as the World of the Cross.
This, My beloved, is the point of understanding I desire for you to strive for. When someone unwittingly grieves you, elevate yourself towards a greater spiritual understanding of others. And pray even for those who spitefully use you.
Your job is to grow in grace with love towards all. Your Master-Son is your example in all this. It is truly regrettable that they made this whole sordid affair into a grandiose spectacle, as He was totally innocent of any wrongdoing. They did all this without any trial or defense. Then later, the greatest mistake was made when they made Him out to be an offering for their sins, which even now is the foundation of the church that bears His Name.
It is in the resurrection, where His greatest triumph lies – the promise and proof that life goes on after mortal death. I desire for you to dwell upon this, rather than upon His inhuman death.
He, indeed, had the power to lay down His life and take it back up again.”
