“Pentecost endowed mortal man with the power to forgive personal injuries, to keep sweet in the midst of the gravest injustice, to remain unmoved in the face of appalling danger, and to challenge the evils of hate and anger by the fearless acts of love and forbearance.” [UB, 194:3.12] [Emphasis added]
“Pentecost was designed to lessen the self-assertiveness of individuals, groups, nations, and races. It is this spirit of self-assertiveness which so increases in tension that it periodically breaks loose in destructive wars. Mankind can be unified only by the spiritual approach, and the Spirit of Truth is a world influence which is universal.” [UB, 194:3.18]
Thought Adjuster: “Over 2000 years have elapsed since the universal outpour of the Spirit of Truth. In view of the many hotspots still plaguing your world, you may wonder why the Spirit of Truth apparently did not deliver on his promises.
The Spirit of Truth cannot make empty promises. The delays are due to the role played by human free wills in the divine/human equation, as “[t]he Creator refuses to coerce or compel the submission of the spiritual free wills of his material creatures.” [UB, 1:1.2]
The indwelling spiritual presence of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit within their human offspring can only be ‘empowered’ by your sincere intention of following their leadings. It is how you get organically transformed from the inner, as they prompt you to morph into the optimal version of yourself. You have it in you to respond in a Jesus-like manner to your life’s challenges. “The affectionate dedication of the human will to the doing of the Father’s will is man’s choicest gift to God; in fact, such a consecration of creature will, constitutes man’s only possible gift of true value to the Paradise Father.” [UB, 1:1.2] The Spirit of Truth is one of your self-appointed and devoted Mentors from on high toward the coming to fruition of a unified world.”
