Each package given to the warriors was personal, and each contained three items: a sword, a shield, and some body armor. The sword represented truth and could never be broken. Truth is pure, and the sword was, also, offering a perfect defense against the deceptions of the dark ones.
The shield represented knowledge—knowledge of the weakness of the enemy, and knowledge from eons of archives from the ancients. No energy could penetrate the shield, since knowledge voided out secrets and conspiracy. Secrets and conspiracy cannot exist in the light of knowledge, for they depend on a dark place of ignorance for their power.
Now, it came to be that indeed there was a coordinated attack by the dark forces. Both groups of light warriors felt they were ready, and they quickly turned to their powerful gifts to ward off the enemy. As the dark forces closed in, the first group opened their packages and stared at the contents with disbelief. Everything was in parts! There was a manual with a note that said, “SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED.”
The other group had opened their packages long ago. They had put their tools together early, and they had practiced with them. It was a good thing they did, for they found the sword to be almost too swift to handle properly. They found the shield to have so many options that they had a difficult time knowing exactly how to hold it, and they found the body armor heavy indeed! With practice and meditation, they eventually learned how to balance everything, and they were ready.
They realized that no single tool worked without all three being engaged. The body armor, the closest thing to their skin, was the key, for it somehow gave them the wisdom to control the sword and the shield. Indeed, the shield was used in many modes depending on the situation, and the sword was easily controlled when the shield was used appropriately. When the attack came, the enemy took one look at this enabled force and fled. The battle was nonexistent, and the warriors rejoiced in their victory. There was no showdown, and no wounds were suffered.
There are some very spiritual people who continue to wait for God to “do something” for them. When they need healing, they ask God to do it, and they hope and hope and hope. When they wish to have situations around them change, they ask God to do it, and they wait and wait and wait.
This comes squarely from the fact that this is the way it used to work, and the old scriptures show it. In fact, the story of Moses exemplifies this fact. God did everything, and Moses and his people were instructed to go when told to. From plagues to parting waters, to carving instructions in stone, everything was done by God. Even when the Israelites were wandering in the desert, God fed them daily, dropping food from heaven.
This was the old energy, before a time when we as humans were given permission to carry a greater energy and ability. When the great Jewish master of love, Jesus, walked our Earth, he was the messenger who gave us the word that everything was changing. The age of God’s love was upon us. He spoke of spiritual gifts and showed them to us. He gave wonderful lectures, performed great miracles, showed a fisherman how to walk on water; and even spoke the words, “You can be just like me!” His message was clear: We are newly enabled spiritual creatures if we choose to be, with powers from the love source itself.
Now we find ourselves crowding the millennium, and more gifts are being given to us because, as Kryon tells it, we have earned them in this age of love. Even now, however; there are those who feel the old ways of waiting for God to do everything are still in effect-but they are not. In this new energy, we are asked to co-create our reality. Co-creation requires two entities (that’s the “co” part). It requires cooperation between the God source and the God portion of the human called the “higher self.”
We are absolutely required to learn the new ways of working spiritually in the new energy of our planet. The “doom and gloom” predictions of Nostradamus will come and go, and many will realize that Kryon was correct. We are in a brand-new paradigm for planet Earth, and as we sail past the time when everything was supposed to end, we’d better start understanding how we contribute spiritually to the entire scheme and find the designed ways to work with God to make this planet a grand place. Those who do not will be very disappointed, and they will not understand what happened.
Learn about the gifts. Pick up the package and use it! Understand how truth, knowledge, and wisdom work together to give great power in this new age!
