In times of crisis in the affairs of a universe, the enormous influence of the mind as a factor in spiritual choice is demonstrated. Education, training, and experience are important factors, but the Adjuster can empower the consecrated will to perform amazing acts of loyal devotion. 
God has foreseen all the emergencies of the universe, and although it seems that emergency decisions or rectifications are made, this is due to our limited vision of God's plan.  Humans sometimes hear Adjuster’s direct voice in moments of supreme desire, in a supreme situation, and consequent upon a supreme decision. 
The men and women of the reserve corps of destiny function in rare social emergencies and spiritual exigencies for the prevention of the breakdown of evolutionary culture or the extinction of the light of living truth.  The ideas, motives, and longings of a lifetime are openly revealed in a crisis.  Seraphim do not intrude into human drama except in emergencies and then usually on the direct orders of their superiors.  Spiritual attainment sometimes is secured by a specific crisis.  Woman failed to get social recognition during primitive times because she did not function in an emergency; she was not a spectacular or crisis hero. 
This crisis in Jesus’ earth life began with the feeding of the five thousand and ended with the famous sermon in the synagogue; the crisis in the lives of the apostles began with the sermon in the synagogue and continued for a whole year, ending only with the Master’s trial and crucifixion. 
Jesus fully understood how men prepare themselves for the decisions of a crisis and the performance of sudden deeds of courageous choosing by the slow process of the reiterated choosing between the recurring situations of good and evil.  For preparing the great crisis of his life on earth Jesus spent much time in communion with the Father in heaven.  Jesus referred one phase of the kingdom to the future and intimated that such an event might appear as a part of a world crisis.
