Ascended Master Saint Germain, August 31, 2005 through Kim Michaels.
I am one of the primary ascended masters who have sponsored the United States of America. I did so because I saw the need for a nation who could provide a bastion of freedom against the rising red tide and a rising tide of totalitarian forces seen around the world. Yet instead of using their prosperity and power to promote true freedom, the American people have allowed themselves to be lulled asleep by a comfortable lifestyle. Instead of using the freedom they have been given to raise their vision for a better society, they have accepted a limited vision based on creature comforts. They have refused to acknowledge that freedom comes with a responsibility and an obligation to use their freedom and prosperity to help other people, both the poor in their own nation and the poor and disadvantaged around the world.
Instead of using this freedom to set others free, too many Americans have started worshipping the god of mammon. And thus they sit in their churches every Sunday, feeling holier than thou, because they have declared Jesus Christ to be their Lord and Savior. Yet they do not realize that they are not worshipping or following the true Jesus Christ, the real Jesus. They are indeed following an idolatrous image of Christ. They are dancing around a golden calf created by the false pastors that control most of the so-called Christian churches in the United States.
The power elite lulling the people to sleep
These false pastors do not want the people to be awakened, they do not want them to think for themselves, and thus they are carrying on a tradition of lulling people to sleep, a tradition that was started 1,700 years ago with the founding of the Roman Catholic Church by the Emperor Constantine. He was indeed trying to lull his people to sleep in order to maintain his power.
This pattern of putting the people to sleep, so that a small elite can control a majority the population, has been continued and reinforced ever since, not only by the Catholic Church but by most of the mainstream Christian churches. This is indeed a pattern that is in such opposition to the mission of Jesus that it is nothing less than blasphemy. Jesus came to awaken people so that they could choose the immortal life of Christ, the immortal life of the Christ consciousness, rather than the death of the human consciousness, the duality consciousness, the consciousness of anti-christ.
So the problem we see in the United States today is that too many people worship the god of comfortability, and they want their lives to continue as they are today. They do not want to seriously change their lifestyles, change themselves, change their attitude to life. They do not want to reach for a higher understanding of life. They do not want to take responsibility for their own lives, for their own salvation or for their nation. So they are allowing a small elite, a power elite, to run almost every aspect of life in the United States, from the churches to the government to the media and the educational establishments—and of course the business world.
