FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE and some of the staff at The Circle Mission Church



This significant Office Talk given on this occasion depicts the fulfillment of the Scripture to the letter by the great FULFILLER. GOD ALMIGHTY, FATHER DIVINE, for automatically without premeditation, as the time and season warrants it, the fulfillment takes place and the Scripture is revealed.

Therefore, a few days prior to this Office Talk, FATHER opened the Bible at random and pointed to a certain verse, which MOTHER read, and as it was very stressful in FATHER'S consideration, HE asked MOTHER to read it again at this particular time, which She did, and FATHER brought forth this marvelous revelation which had been hid through the ages, hid from man's understanding, awaiting the day of fulfillment, which is here and now.

For These Significant Words of Spirit And Life, Almighty God, We Humbly Thank Thee!

(The foregoing statements are those of the transcriber, and the following is the Scriptural quotation read by MOTHER just before FATHER commenced speaking:)

'Then Solomon began to build the House of the LORD at Jerusalem in Mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.'

(FATHER speaks as follows:)


Then Solomon began to build the House of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah. Then the LORD began to build the house of the LORD in Philadelphia in Woodmont; where the LORD appeared at the signing of the Declaration of Independence and at the drafting of the Constitution and its Amendments; where the people proclaimed Liberty throughout all the land and the Pilgrim Fathers came in the name of the Quakers and made Philadelphia, through the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the drafting of the Constitution and its Amendments- the city of "BROTHERLY LOVE". And the LORD came and made it in the latter days- confirming the City of "BROTHERLY LOVE", the COUNTRY SEAT of the WORLD, the City of "BROTHERLY LOVE". Confirming the City of "Brotherly Love" and the Cradle of Democracy, making it the COUNTRY SEAT of the WORLD! And thence HE starts to build the Temple of GOD. Not at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, but at the NEW JERUSALEM, better known as Philadelphia, at Woodmont!

Staff: That is so wonderful, FATHER Dear.

One of the Staff: It's no wonder I always look down on the village of Conshohocken and seeing the houses and churches with their spires, think it looks just like Jerusalem.

Another of the Staff: That is wonderful, FATHER Dear.

MOTHER DIVINE. It has a spiritual significance.

Secretary: Then we have the River Jordan. known as the Schuylkill river.

FATHER: How I happened to stress this so vividly, is because I opened the Bible at random, and without any premeditation or pre-consideration it came pointed II Chronicles, third chapter and first verse; and reading it volitionally in MY Cabinet, I brought out by interpretation the Mystery of the repetition of history, showing quite definitely by inspiration and by interpretation, that as it was with the building of the Temple of the LORD in Jerusalem, in mount Moriah, so it is in the rebuilding of the Temple of the LORD in Philadelphia, or at Philadelphia in Woodmont.

So the Scripture is now being fulfilled in your hearing. It is quite vividly depicted and it can be seen and observed, as this is the Crowning Day! The Country Seat of the World, and the Cradle of Democracy has become to be in reality the Country Seat of the World! But the Cradle of Democracy and the City of Brotherly Love has been crowned as the Country Seat of the World; and all nations shall flow into it!

'And many shall say: Let us go up to the House of the LORD, that HE might teach us of HIS Ways.'

MOTHER DIVINE: It is Wonderful, FATHER Dear.

FATHER: What says it concerning the Mystery of the House of the LORD?


'And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. "And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the House of the GOD of Jacob; and HE will teach us of HIS ways, and we will walk in HIS paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the WORD of the LORD from Jerusalem." (Isaiah 2:2,3)

(FATHER speaks again as follows:)

Go up to the mount of the House of the LORD and there you see, as has been declared, Woodmont, where the establishment of the House of the LORD shall be. It is the highest peak of the mount in Montgomery County, and even the critics cannot criticize it, neither can they dispute it!

One of the Staff: They say there are many beautiful mansions up on Spring Mill Road out there, but none like Woodmont.

FATHER: And as in the experience of Pine Brook. Pine Brook being the highest peak in that vicinity, in that part of the country that was pre-arranged and pre-built for the purpose for which we have it, and it was declared by a representative of the health department that the well we have there is worth a million dollars!

Secretary: Just the well!

FATHER: Just the well, and there you can go up and swim in the swimming pool drawn from that well! The water of health! Health water, humanly speaking, declared to be by medical science and the health department officials to be worth a million dollars, where you can find health for your soul and for your body!

MOTHER DIVINE: That is beautiful!

FATHER: Then, if you choose to go to Tarrytown, a resort as it may seem to be, set apart for you and for ME, you will find it is the highest peak in that particular county, Westchester County overlooking the Hudson, where the estate is known as FATHER DIVINE'S estate, having more than seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars' worth of shrubbery thereon. The house, the mansion, is inlaid with such protection against heat and cold until it has been said that you can leave a glass of water in the house without any heat in the house and the temperature can go down to ten below Zero and it will not freeze. So you can see how the LORD has blessed us here, there and everywhere!

MOTHER DIVINE: It is wonderful, Dear.

FATHER: And has lifted you up and I have not cast you down, but given you a hope above those of whom would try to criticize! Having a-full and a-plenty and to spare always under your LOVING SAVIOR'S CARE! I thank you.

Secretaries and MOTHER: Thank YOU, FATHER Darling.

Secretary: It is something to consider, how YOU sent Moses upon the mountain to get the Law, and JESUS went up on the mountain to give the New Law, the Sermon on the Mount, and in this day YOU go up on the mountain and YOU are dispensing this moral Law and giving it back down to the multitudes.

FATHER: It is true. When JESUS went up on the mountain apart, and was set, the multitude came unto HIM and HE taught them out of HIS Mouth, saying:

(At this point, some of the secretaries repeated a portion of The Sermon on the Mount.)

MOTHER DIVINE: That testimony given by Miss M. D. yesterday, I thought it was a wonderful point she brought out when she said that YOU took them upon the mountain before YOU gave them the Law.

FATHER: It is true.

MOTHER: And YOU fed them mentally and spiritually so they could live this Life.

FATHER: It is wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! But this was so profound and explicitly interpretationally depicted. As the Bible was opened directly to the quotation as mentioned and to see the fulfillment of the Scripture. It is not Mount Moriah, but it is Woodmont!

Secretary: And to think, YOU Personally weren't seeking it, but the former owner said before she died, that she wanted YOU to have it; she wanted FATHER DIVINE to have it!

FATHER: It was predestined that we should have it. As you say, it was not that I sought it; and many other blessings beyond any comprehension of the human mind to fathom, are in storehouse for the true and the faithful who will live exactly accordingly. But it has been conveyed and still conveying from time to time, the truth concerning the Mount of the House of the LORD, and they are coming from all parts of the world that we might teach them of our ways, to enjoy and come into possession of this International Peace and Universal Peace, yea, INFINITE PEACE that is without the beginning of days and without the end of LIFE, IN THE AIR, ON LAND, ON THE SEA! (FATHER picks up the INTERNATIONAL PEACE portrait with HIS and MOTHER'S Picture and says:) With the American Liberty Bell, which hangs here in Philadelphia, above our heads and the United States Flag on either side; in other words, on both sides; and MOTHER and I as an abstract expression of the Symbol of this INFINITE PEACE, PURITY and REDEMPTION for all of the people!

Aren't you glad! ("So glad, FATHER Dear!" responded the adoring Staff.) Above our heads is the Liberty Bell that hangs here in Philadelphia, the City of BROTHERLY LOVE and the Cradle of Democracy, but now Crowned as the Country Seat of the World; and the American Flag on either side is the Flag that shall fly so high as you pledge ALEGIANCE to the Flag of the United States of America. I think I had better stop! Secretaries: Oh, FATHER, no, it is so beautiful!

MOTHER: YOU said something about the Capitol beneath Us (referring to the portrait).

FATHER: I said, I think I had better stop! But the Flag on either side, in other words, on both sides, and the Capitol of the United States in Washington, portrayed as our support and the Foundation upon which we are building. I thank you.

(As our SAVIOR concluded these beautiful remarks in the volition-ted Power of HIS OWN HOLY SPIRIT, HE quickly rose from HIS Desk and walked out, leaving us grateful for every WORD that falls from HIS HOLY LIPS.)
