Lesson Highlights

  • Going through fearful times/difficult times
  • Jacob and Esau
  • Hardships are momentary
  • Not caring what others think
  • How Jacob defeated the negative side
  • Riding the wave of negativity by diminishing ourselves
  • True prayer and receiving all that we ask for
  • Jacob merited revealing the soul of Mashiach (Messiah)
  • Reincarnation: Adam, Jacob, Benjamin, Avigail, King David

Lesson Description

In this lesson, Michael emphasizes the great spiritual understanding and conscious awareness one must have in order to reveal great Light within their lives: the answer to our prayers and all we desire can only be achieved through true humility, allowing ourselves to be diminished and extreme difficulty. Within the secrets shared herein, we can see that even the most righteous of souls endured temporary difficulty as a means to bring about the greatest Light of all, the end of pain and suffering in this world: The Final Redemption.
