Having a Sustainable Impact on, "The World-Mind"

#Preaching #Teaching #PublicMinistry 

Fellow Urantia Book readers, please let us strike directly at a very important objective: "What did Jesus do?" Where are the pastors, teachers and evangelists in our midst? Where are the ministers?
There has to be a better way of presenting the "undiluted" message of the gospel to the world - to people in villages, towns and cities. This would involve having a "structure" in place. This would involve "money". Some teachers would have to commit at least 40 hours per week to the work. 4 hours of "volunteer" work is not sufficient. This is what we see looking at Jesus and his apostles and evangelists as they embarked on a "Public Ministry" (not "Private Ministry").

This is not about forcing the entire Urantia Book down the throats of the masses. It's not about "rushing" to get millions of humans to change their entire mindset instantly. That's not the point. Rather, the point is having a sustainable impact on "the world-mind" with the simple, clear and undiluted gospel teachings as presented in the Urantia Book. Many souls will be saved, healed, delivered, spiritually enlightened, uplifted... Laborers are needed in the Master’s vineyard. More people, who can devote 40 or more hours weekly are needed to take the message of love, grace and truth to the ends of the Earth.

Machiventa Melchizedek did it with his students. He had a headquarters in Salem (that is "structure" or "organization", folks). The Salem headquarters needed "funding" constantly. Remember Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek? Jesus did a similar thing with his apostles, disciples, evangelists... They were funded as well. The Apostles couldn't work full time at a job or business. Their families had to be supported. Jesus and his inner circle had to be supported financially as well. Matthew was "the money getter". Believers gave cheerfully to Jesus' Public Ministry. Judas was the treasurer.

More light workers are needed to "GO!" - and preach the gospel of the kingdom and proclaim the saving truth that man is a son of God; to present the teachings of the kingdom in ways that can be easily understood by the common man. Jesus said "the harvest is plenteous". How do we look at this? Please, compare and contrast with the "slow growth" concept of the dissemination of the Fifth Ephocal Revelation.

Look at it this way: There may be "slow growth" with regards to people fully embracing the Fifth Ephocal Revelation and having a very good grasp of its many information. But when it comes to getting people to having a clear understanding of the "gospel message", the harvest is plenteous. We do not have to shelve the entire Urantia Book on people's laps. But we are called to work together in teams, to share the gospel message to the entire world's population.

So the question is, "Please, what is stopping us from having a sustainable impact on "the world-mind" with the simple, clear and undiluted gospel teachings as presented in the Urantia Book?" Let us strike directly for our objectives! Please, let's not make it look complicated. "Strike directly for your objectives!" 

Peace be upon us!

“Jesus continued to teach the twenty-four, saying: “...The heathen strike directly for their objectives; you are guilty of too much chronic yearning. If you desire to enter the kingdom, why do you not take it by spiritual assault even as the heathen take a city they lay siege to? ...Cease your useless yearning and go forth bravely doing that which concerns the establishment of the kingdom.” - Urantia Book 155:1.3

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force." - Jesus, Matthew 11:12. The violent ones take it by force - by spiritual assault! Glory!
