Certificate #2: Healing and Community Transformation

This level encourages practical contributions to your circle of influence in body/mind/relationships healing, bringing the message of Oneness and divinity into practical daily application with others. It is based on Jeshua’s directive to us:

“Preach my gospel – which is yours as well – that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. I send you forth, from this day forward, to go as my disciple: to preach with love.  To heal the sick, to raise the dead.  To do miracles.  Yes, I am calling upon you to do miracles.  Many of your brothers and sisters are calling out to be raised from the tomb of worldly belief.  The spirit of Life as joy, as valuable, as hopeful is almost dead within them.  They do not think there could be another way to live, to come truly alive.  How do you raise the dead?  By being the presence of heaven once again.  By being the presence of hope, of Love, of joy, of Truth, of optimism. And you are ready.”
