Jesus and Empire.

I am here, Jesus.
When I was teaching my fellow Jews, I told them that the Roman Empire was just a temporary cloud. I tried to show them the way toward happiness and God. Naturally, they were very unhappy about the unreasonable demands the Roman Empire brought, but my goal was to help them transcend the problem in the best way I knew - by seeing the spiritual as transcendant over earthplane realities.
And in exactly the same way, I say to your contemporaries to see the things of God as more important than the empire that is currently in place.
Some of my compatriots chose to confront the Romans through war. This was doomed to failure. In your country [the United States] now, this reaction really does not exist, as generally, people have believed in their government and their way of life. The difficulty and paralysis that afflict so many Americans, therefore, do not invoke the negative energy that brought my country to ruin. This provides an excellent environment for us Angels to work with, and our efforts will therefore be successful.
