Reed Summers shares the following experience of Revelation in relation to his father, the Messenger for our time, Marshall Vian Summers, and the previous Messenger, Muhammad. It is with great reverence that I share this with you here.
In a historic moment of recollection, the Angels of the New Message from God spoke of their direct memory of Muhammad centuries ago. This occurred as Marshall Vian Summers was receiving the revelation The Initiation which, according to Reed Summers who was in the room as it was received, was an unforgettable moment where the Angels honored and remembered God’s previous Messenger.
“It was life-shaking enough to be in the room as the Messenger received The Initiation, one of the most powerful revelations of the entire New Message from God. But I felt as if my heart stopped when the Angelic Presence began speaking about Muhammad. For a moment, the words coming through my father halted. His eyes were closed and his head down.
Suddenly my father’s face changed and in it I could see the identity of the Angel speaking. I could see the Angel in his face. Though Marshall’s eyes were closed, the Angel’s eyes were not. The angel turned my father to the left, extended his arms outward and squinted his closed eyes into the distance. “There he is, I see him now,” the Angel said pointing several feet away. “He is over there.” The Angel paused in clear recollection, Marshall’s hand shaking in the direction of Muhammad.
It shook me to my core. Not only was this a teaching about the humble demeanor and appearance of Messengers. It was an Angel of God, the same one who was present at that tea table 1,300 years ago, remembering a moment of looking upon Muhammad. Now that Angel was speaking through my Father, delivering the New Message from God, pausing to recall this moment, as if it had been forgotten for a millenium or more, only just now recovered.
To witness this with my own eyes, sitting about eight feet away, was a moment in history I will never forget.”
“You were having tea at a table with Mohammad, but you did not know who he was. Well, he looks like anyone else. He is not radiating the Presence. He is not so magnificent or so omnipotent that everyone around him is swooned by his presence. He is just a man, dressed traditionally, just a man. There he is. I see him now. He is over here. Nothing special. He had to preach hard to even get people to listen to him. So blind was everyone around him, only a few could see. Such is the dilemma and the burden of the Messenger at any time of Revelation.”
Peace be upon all Messengers who have, who are now and who will again, bring a greater understanding and experience of the Divine and the will of God into the world.
