Forgiveness and Love

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 23, 2019 • 18 Comments

Amazingly, this is the first decade in all of human history when we know for certain why the universe exists and why you and I are in these bodies. No mogul or king, no prophet through even the end of the twentieth century could have known what you and I know now. Had some of... Read More

God and Creation

It is amazing that deep in the twenty-first century we still don’t have good answers to humankind’s three most important questions. The scientific community has pontificated, and various religions have opined, but none of what any of them says feels right. Here is the sorry state of play, at a time when we really need...

The Kingdom of God on Earth (Part IV)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 02, 2019 • 27 Comments

The kingdom of God was the Lord’s obsession. He uses the term more than fifty times through all four Gospels, and He refers to “the kingdom of heaven” almost thirty times in the Gospel of Matthew. Since the terms seem to mean the same thing to Jesus, this is likely another translation glitch so to... Read More

The Kingdom of God On Earth (Part III)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 23, 2019 • 36 Comments

The destruction of the Lord’s first effort to bring the kingdom of God on earth was complete. The early Roman Church stamped out every form of Christian thought that did not conform to its fear-based dogmas, and it almost destroyed even the memory of those first three hundred precious years when Jesus had been a...

The Kingdom of God on Earth (Part II)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 16, 2019 • 22 Comments

We are told by those that we used to think were dead that for more than a century there has been a major effort underway, being orchestrated at the highest levels of reality, to raise the consciousness vibration of this planet away from fear and anger and toward ever more perfect love. This goal should... Read More

The Kingdom of God on Earth (Part I)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 09, 2019 • 14 Comments

Some who have been reading this series have told me they were eager to see how I was going to describe the advent of the kingdom of God on earth. And I was eager to see that too! I was game. I boldly set fingers to keyboard, but then I realized there were a few... Read More

Faithless

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 26, 2019 • 18 Comments

No sooner had I shared with you my insight that the Gospel words suggest the Lord meant to abolish the notion of sin than I realized there was another thing He seems to have meant to consign to history. This one is a harder call, so I wondered if I should mention it now; but... Read More

Sinless

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 19, 2019 • 18 Comments

I had mostly drafted my promised ideas about the dawning of the kingdom of God on earth when I realized that before I posted them I ought to share with you one more thing that Jesus came to do for all of humankind. He came to abolish the concept of sin and transform our notion... Read More

The Kingdom of God

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 12, 2019 • 17 Comments

Recently we sat at the feet of the Lord and listened as He taught His flock. Among other things, freshly listening to Him made us realize that He was bent on achieving the almost immediate arrival of the kingdom of God on earth. He expected His spiritual revolution to start small and then grow rapidly,... Read More

Listening to Jesus

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 29, 2018 • 43 Comments

I read frequent communications from three very different clergymen. One is an eloquent Catholic monk who has devoted his life to elevating whatever he finds to be of value in Catholicism while he happily ignores the rest. The second is a pastor who trumpets all the mainline Protestant ideas and especially insists that Jesus died... Read More
