Go To the Real Source For the Supply

In speaking of the feeding of the five thousand, FATHER said:

 

 

'Jesus knew that the small amount came from GOD, and realizing the Truth, He gave thanks to GOD for the bread, not giving thanks to man, not giving thanks to the boy, not saying, 'Well, if it had not been for this little boy,' etc., and then someone else did not come up and say, 'Well, if it had not been for his mother who cooked it,' etc. There the whole world would have gone back in darkness, giving honor to materialism, but it is written He gave thanks to GOD for the bread. He could have said, 'I thank you little boy for bringing this bread along.' Then the Apostles could have got into the argument. And then some of the ladies could have got into it and said, 'Well, you thank his mother because she was the one told him to bring it knowing he would be hungry.' Especially the women.

'Then if Jesus had been a natural man, the men would have come up and said, 'Well, his father was the one that earned the money to pay for the bread, so give him the glory.' But Jesus went right to the Source and got the supply. If you don't go to the Source, Dear Ones, you cannot get the supply. Now all the glory goes to GOD for everything I have ever received. I have never had any servants and I have showed it unto you that you can see as I see it. I have never had any servants. They look as though they are serving ME, but all of the glory belongs to GOD and I came down on that plane so that you can see it and know it and be it and you can go back to the Source and then supply will certainly come.'

'You see, when you are out on the sea you may not realize the great significance of being out where you can get the fresh breeze or the fresh air, but when you get in a big city like New York on a hot day in the summer so that even when a car is passing by you, the air from it is hot, then you can think of how wonderful it is out on the sea for those that are out there on the ocean catching the fresh breeze. Or if you had been out there, or if in other words, one could be taken up from the city and that hot air, and going to GOD's unadulterated air and be placed out there in the fresh breeze, then you could see how they enjoy it.'

 

The Significance of the Name or Principle Is the Omnipotence, Omniscience and Omnipresence of the Spirit

'So you are all right here, and you can see how they come as if though it is something. It is Wonderful, isn't it? The public acts as though it is something. If you didn't know, you would think it was something within, for you do not see anything without. As I before said, as I said last night about GOD filling the churches, I AM not speaking of materialism, mortality or personality. I AM not speaking of the Person but the Impersonal Life, yea, the very Name of GOD that is promised in the consciousness of the children of men, even though it has been birthed out through this Personal Body through sacrifice; it is the very idea, the Name of GOD.

'That is the thing that is at the church. They take the Name of GOD there in Person. If I had not been there in Person, the church was filled anyway. So I do not want you all to misconceive the idea of what I AM speaking. When I said, if GOD did or had not come, who could fill the Church? Who could fill the hall? Who could bring success and prosperity saving GOD? I meant GOD as a Principle or Idea that permeates the body, the soul and the mind, and that is what brings peace; that is what brings prosperity, that is what brings health and happiness, with or without a Body.

'So you can plainly see and readily see that the significance of the Name, the Principle, is the Omnipotence and the Omniscience and Omnipresence of the Spirit. It is Wonderful! Yet, GOD condescended, it is true, to materialize that of which HE came -- and that in which HE came -- and that of which HE created, and that of which HE is. But for the highest good of the individual or individuals, I say, this Principle, that there be no cause of stumbling or dividing from this Grand Principle that is a sample and an example, a refuge and the strong tower in which you can hide.

'The name of GOD is a strong tower: and the righteous run therein and are saved.'
'Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.'

And you cannot see HIM until you say it! And I came to make it so plain that you would be compelled to say it, that you may be compelled to say that the man, even the woman, girl or boy that cometh in the Name of the LORD is blessed, and that by realizing that if you come in the Name of the LORD you are blessed, walking worthy of the vocation wherein you are called, being submissive to the CHRIST Mind of GOD.

'If you take the Name of GOD, take it not in vain. The Bible did not say, 'Thou shalt not take the name of God,' but it said,

'Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.'

The Apostle said,,/

'Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory.'

So again I say,

'Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.'

So you can see that there is no condemnation to take the Name, if you do not take it in vain.'

 

Subject Yourself to This Great Mind

'And where there are many get caught up in the great vibrations of the Spirit and make their claims and declarations and affirmations, GOD can make HIS confirmation if you will walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called, being meek, submissive and mild, being governed by the Spirit of CHRIST within and in your mouth be found no guile, being just as a little child. Then and there and here and now, you can bring forth that Truth and Life and Love to fruition without condemnation.

'The Word says:

'Let this mind be in you, that was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.'

But because He knew it was not robbery to be equal with GOD He made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant and was obedient even unto death on the cross -- the cross-grained mind of man. Therefore GOD has exalted Him and given Him a Name before which every knee must bow and every tongue must confess. Do you not see the great significance of meekness and yet counting it not robbery to make yourself equal with GOD?

'Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.'

The spiritual vibrations, without the transformation of the mind will cause a convulsion in your conscious mentality, and cause what would be called a delusion, but being governed by the Spirit of your FATHER and by the Mind that was in CHRIST JESUS, and being transformed by the renewing of your mind and getting the Mind of CHRIST, you can be caught up in all of the vibrations that the world can express and there can be no destination to your unlimited existence. GOD is GOD.

'The higher your vibrations, inspirations and spiritual inclinations and tendencies may be, the brighter and the higher and the greater your intellect, understanding and mind should be. Let the Mind that was in the Body called Jesus be in you, and then and there and here and now, the Mind of CHRIST can control all demonstrations, vibrations, inclinations, tendencies, fancies and pleasures whatsoever they may be. The great Master Mind, that is a reflection of what humanity so often calls, a mastermind. Such and such a one they call a great mastermind because he is a sketch of a reflection of what the Master's Mind is supposed to have been in that direction or talent or whatsoever they may be expressing. Now aren't you glad? Glad because there is no law back in the world, there is no book of etiquette, there is no book of science, nor a scientist that can fathom out these truths and bring to light the spiritual understanding than the CHRIST, for, '. . . greater is he that is within you, than all they that are in the world.'

'They that will wait on HIM will bring HIM forth into expression or demonstration, and HE will declare HIMSELF unto you and to the world in GOD, and in peace and in truth. That is why again I say, 'In all thy getting, get understanding,' and be governed by the inspiration of the Spirit, and let the mind of Christ be your guide and your protection, as the captain on board your ship, and everything will be absolutely all right, for vibrations, demonstrations, inclinations, all of these are controlled by the great Master Mind, for,

'the government shall be upon his shoulders.'

Then subject yourself to this great Mind and as I before said,

'Let this mind be in you, that was also in Christ Jesus.'

Let this Mind be your guide. Let this Mind be your protection. Let this Mind be your scales. Let this Mind be your clock. Let this Mind watch over you by day and by night and you don't have to fear.

 

There Must Be A Real for the Counterfeit to be Patterned After

'You see, if such and such a thing is a counterfeit, there must be something real for something that is a counterfeit to be patterned after. It is evidently known that every expression of falsity has its origin in the view of the expression of truthfulness or 'truth-ity,' as we may term it. You must pattern, and all things that are unreal, they had to get their pattern from the real. The negative is the reverse expression of the positive, and the darkness is the absence of the light or absolute reverse of the light. In all expressions there is a positive and there is a negative. Don't you see?

'Therefore, condemn not, and thou shalt not be condemned. Accuse not, and thou shalt not be accused. The positive and the negative. You can be put into the negative or can be the negative, if you subjugate yourself to the negative mind. The negative mind is the mortal version of things. The positive mind is the positive interpretation of things, the positive mind. So therefore, you can express either, but if you live in mortal consciousness, and not the high vibrations, subjugating yourself to the mortal inclinations, fancies, tendencies and pleasures with your mortal mind to appease the mortal concept of the human mind, you will be brought in captivity unto condemnation. But if you will allow the CHRIST to rule and super-rule in your affairs, your inclinations, tendencies, fancies and pleasures, as the Apostle Paul said,

'I must take heed to my body, lest after I have preached to others,

I myself should be a castaway,'

When you bring your body into subjection to the CHRIST Mind, then you can be blessed, and you will be blessed continually of the LORD. It is Wonderful!

'You are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Christ dwells in you.'

If so be that the Spirit of Jesus dwells in you, the Spirit of him that raised up Christ from the dead (which is the Supreme Spirit) will raise you up from the dead -- the Spirit of Him that the world cannot receive, for it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him. But you see Him, and

'because I live, you shall also live.'

Then on such terms, and on such a foundation with the right Spirit of GOD your FATHER within, governed by the CHRIST Consciousness, everything is all right. That is the idea, to be governed by the CHRIST Consciousness and not the mortal version of your human mind. Where there is, I say, a counterfeit, there must be a real. Where there is a false, there must be a truth. Where there is a truth, there must be some counterfeiter, or falsity must be as much operative in the falsity of mortality as truth is operative in the truthfulness of spirituality.

 

Divine Intelligence Alone Controls the Situation

'So it is eternal life to know the only true GOD. If I choose to jump over the house Personally, I AM just the same, for the Mind is GOD's Mind and the Body is subjugated to the CHRIST Consciousness. It is that mind imparted to the individual, and yet with all of the charges, all of the currents, all of the inspirations of the Spirit, the Divine Intelligence, with all of its majesty, and yet with the simplicity and meekness and understanding, controls the situation and all things are all right. It is Wonderful!

'The human mind cannot control the affairs of GOD. It cannot control it in its way of non-emotional-ness, and it cannot control it in the way of its emotions. It is a twofold meaning to the depths of the mystery of GOD. There may come in one's life, the mortal version of the human mind, reflecting and telling you through emotions to manifest GOD, and yet, by the human interpretation of the inspiration of Truth, yet right there, because you have not been governed by the Power Divine, you may say within yourself that emotions must be stilled, and try to control the inspiration of GOD by the mortal version of your human mind of non-emotions. Truly might one writer have said,

'Who is this that cometh from Bozrah with dyed garments on? He came treading the wine press all alone,'

for he was alone with them that had non-emotional interpretations, vibrations and emotions. He stood alone and He traveled alone. Therefore, He had on dyed garments, and He declared,

'Mine own arm hath gotten me the victory.

** *** **

 

'Now I have talked and talked and talked, and MY thought turns back to the earth once more and to those that are calling, such as you. I say that there are now 3,500,000 calling on ME. Just then I turned MY thoughts back to what I have to do. I had somewhat forgotten the office and the letters that came yesterday and day before that I have not read, besides 'sandwiches' and 'lunches'. We call those notes and letters that we get when we go to the meetings, 'sandwiches' and 'lunches,' because they are all packed together like sandwiches. And so I have not read the many that I received yesterday, day before and today, hundreds of them besides having quite a number to get out. MY attention is now called back to the earth, for MY Spirit and MY blessing I send out to those that dwell on the earth that they may be even as you are.'

 

All Should Be

FATHER gave a long talk on marriage today, at which I was not present for the greater part of it. The main theme was that if the mortal way of multiplying and replenishing the earth was right, there would not be so much pain and death and suffering connected with it. He said, Jesus was the Way, the Truth and the Life, and He came to show us how we should be born.

'Since you were not born that way, you can not be a son, only by adoption, as it were. There is no record that Jesus had to be born again, because He was born right. He was the Way, the Truth and the Life for all men and He was to show the way all men should be born.

'Every man should have been born just as Jesus was born, and to verify this, when the serpent had talked with Eve and she then had a man-child, it was of the serpent. To verify this, she had the forethought and said she had a man-child of the LORD. It should have been of the LORD, but it was of the serpent. The first-born child was S-t-n's son and the second-born child was a little nearer GOD and was the man's son, and that was not the perfect child yet, but he came nearer to perfection than the serpent's son, for the serpent had talked with Eve and then she told Adam that she had a man-child of the LORD. That goes to show you that he should have been of the LORD and all should have been born of the LORD as Jesus was. So you see, they were all born wrong. You have no business to be naturally born, or the son of the d-v-l, neither have you any business to be the son of man. You have business to be the son of GOD!

'It is well worth considering, the real significance of truth, how that Christ came, and through your belief you became to be born of GOD after you denied yourself. That is why He said, 'Let a man deny himself.' You put off that mortal birth and you are recognized then as of righteous birth, and,

'He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.'

So now you are no longer in the human state of consciousness, but you are the sons and daughters of GOD.'

FATHER said tonight at the table that HE knew someone had had pain and had been helped; because HE had borne it for them. HE said many of us could do the same also, we would feel heavy or sad and not know the reason for it, but it was because someone we were holding in our consciousness was feeling that way and we felt it sympathetically. HE said that was why Jesus said,

'Unless a man leave father and mother,' etc., '. . . and all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple,'

because he knew they could not be, as long as they held such mortal conditions in consciousness.

 

All Power Is Given Unto Me in the Literary, Psychic, and Spiritual Realm of Life

FATHER announced today that five hundred copies of Mr. Lanyon's book, 'It is Wonderful' were under way and that it was truly wonderful that so much of HIS Wisdom and Knowledge had been brought through on the literary plane, so that all those who would, on the material and psychic planes, as well as those on the spiritual plane who would descend to the literary plane, could receive the Message. HE continued:

'As a result, you will contact CHRIST on the material or literary plane. All power is given to ME on the material or literary plane as well as on and in the psychic and spiritual planes. All power is given unto ME in the spiritual and psychic realm of life and also in the literary and material realm of life, which is to say in short,

'All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.'

For this cause I materialized MYSELF to bring to your conscious realization that humanity is in the midst of ME, and on whatsoever plane they function, and there you can reach HIM for HE is a present help in every need, therefore being present on the psychic and on the material and on the literary or mental or intellectual planes, as well as in the spiritual realm and on the spiritual plane. So it is Wonderful!

'Such a glorious privilege to know that all of these things come to you by your being willing to sacrifice all of those pre-rehearsed expressions of the realms of good and all things, being willing to sacrifice all that was on the material plane, being willing to sacrifice all that was on the literary plane and all that were in the psychic plane for the true spiritual, you become to be an inheritor of that which is on the psychic, on the material, on the literary, as well as on the spiritual. Denying those lower planes or expressions of life for the higher expression of GOD, you become to be an inheritor of those lower expressions of life and an hundredfold more than that which you have sacrificed.'

 

No Light Created By the Cosmic Forces Can Compare With My Omniscient Lightning

'These illuminating truths, MY Spirit, MY revelation, it is lightning, enlightening the earth. David said, 'the earth saw the lightning, and trembled.' HIS lightning enlightens the world in whatsoever world you live, and the earth sees the great reflection and even sees the direct light of the lightning, the inspirations of MY Word, and it trembles. It is Wonderful! Aren't you glad that the highest light of the expression of Truth has dawned upon you and that the super-intellect of Heaven has been made manifest unto you, and that you are the direct expression of GOD on earth among men, for, 'His lightning enlightens the earth: the earth saw, and trembled.'

'These illuminating revelations will enlighten you, will enlighten your understanding and light up your dark pathway of misunderstanding and make your crooked ways straight,

'for great and marvelous are thy works, O God, for great and holy is thy name.'

The wisdom, the understanding and the omnipotence of all is manifested unto you and with you and within you,

'and there is nothing can hurt nor harm in all my holy mountain.'

There is no power, there is no opposition that can be expressed even by the mighty cosmic forces that can prohibit these truths, for the Master of Omnipotency and the Controller of all destinies, and the Master of the cosmic forces of nature is in you and has control and has dominion both in and over you and all those that concern you, the Controller of the cosmics. It is Wonderful!

'Not by power, nor by might, but by my spirit, saith the LORD.'

Truly might one have said, 'The spirit of the Lord is upon me; for he has anointed me to preach. . .' These illuminating truths, they transcend all lights, all imaginable lights, every light of human expression or manifestation. There is no light can come through the expression or appearance of man that can compare with the Light in which you now stand. Are you standing in the Light? Are you walking in the Light? This Light transcends any light that can come. There is no light that can be created by the cosmic forces of nature that can by any means reflect itself comparatively with this Light, for it is the Light of all Omnipotence, the Light of all Omniscience. And it is truly the thought that comes through this Light and inspires you, being called revelations and inspirations, for that is MY lightning.

'His lightning enlightened the world:'

and 'the earth saw,' this light, these revelations, 'and it trembled.',

'Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.'

It is Wonderful!

'Do you not feel this mighty current surging through your mind and through your body, yea, even through every thought of your mind, that transcends all limitations and expressions of men and intellects and inspirations of the Heaven and of the GOD of all the earth, transcends the light of understanding that has ever been imparted to the Most High GOD, transcends the light that has ever been imparted to the Everlasting GOD? For the glorious liberty of the Eternal GOD there is no limitation where there is no beginning and where there is no end. The light of the High GOD, the light of the Most High GOD, the light of the Great GOD is not the Light that comes from GOD, but from the Almighty. This Light of Truth transcends the light of the Mighty GOD. This Lightning enlightens the might of the Mighty GOD, for this is the Light of the Almighty GOD. This is the Light of the Eternal GOD that comes from the Soul and touches the soul, and that seeming magic touch transforms the soul and the body and makes them one with HIM: HIS mighty Light, 'HIS lightning enlightens the world: and the earth saw, and trembled.' Aren't you glad? It is Wonderful! HIS lightning enlightens the world. So glad! So glad! It is Wonderful! Lifting you above every bound and barrier, above every limitation, above every imaginable limitation and causing you to transcend every imaginable limitation and express the Love that is beyond degrees, and manifest the CHRIST in the souls of men.'

 

New Motto

'I will preach CHRIST in words, but more so in deeds and in actions, and I will put MY Spirit in them and cause them to walk in MY Statutes.'

 

The People Are the Ground and the Seed Will Be Sown in Them

'I will put MY Spirit in you and I will speak in your actions.

'The very words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.'

That is why you like to hear ME speak. It is truly Wonderful! But I will speak in your own language. I will speak in everyone's language. And I will speak in your own religious language and every emotional language that you speak; that is the actions that I will speak in and in MY deeds. I will put MY Spirit in you and cause you to walk in MY Statutes. I do not have to tell you not to steal. I do not have to tell you to be honest in your dealings, for I will speak in MY deeds and I will put MY deeds in your actions, and I will put MY Spirit in you and cause you to walk in MY Statutes.

'Therefore, you will not steal, for you will realize that if you are not honest you are dishonest to yourself and not to another,

'for that which you sow, you must also reap.'

I reap success and prosperity. I reap wealth, health and happiness. I reap wisdom, knowledge and all understanding. I reap all gifts and all talents, for I sow the seed of such and I reap the fruit of the same. I impart such to you. You are the ground. The people are the ground. The Word says, I will sow the seed, and I will sow the seed of the kind of fruit that I want to produce. Therefore, I will speak in words, but more so in deeds and in actions, and I will put MY Spirit in you and cause you to walk in MY Statutes. I know you desire to be happy. And I know you desire to be successful. And I know you desire to be prosperous.'

 

HE Is All Over me, and HE Is Keeping Me Alive!

'You that have heard MY letters, you that I have corresponded with, you know that I AM Well, Healthy, Joyful, Peaceful, Lively, Loving, Successful, Happy and Prosperous, in Spirit, in Body and in Mind, and even in every Atom, fibre and cell of MY Bodily Form. Now you know that you want to be like that. Contact the CHRIST Consciousness and live in conformity to the same and you will be even as I AM, having all success, having all success I say, having all prosperity, having all wealth, all health and all happiness, having all dominion and all authority, having all gifts and all talents, having all life and all love and everything else that is good. I know you desire to have it. Contact the CHRIST and live in conformity to the same and you will be even as I AM. It is Wonderful! For it is written,

'As he is, so are we in this present world.'

Every one of you can be free from every barrier, from every lack, from every want, from every limitations, from all segregation, from all prejudice, from every adverse condition and undesirable condition, whatsoever they may be, for the Mouth of the LORD has spoken it. I declare it unto you that

'he that the son sets free, is free indeed,'

free from every adverse condition, free from every limitation, free from every undesirable condition and having a free access in this present world, for the Kingdom has truly come and the Will is now being done, here and now on this earth, in this Divine Impersonal Life in which we all live, and move, and have our being, and you in whom GOD lives, and moves and has HIS Being. The two have been made one. You are no longer twain, but one. As in HIM you live, move and have your being, even so in you GOD lives, moves and has HIS Being. HE moves in every joint. HE moves in every sinew, in every organ, in every muscle and in every vein, yea, even in every cell and atom of your bodily form. GOD moves there.

'I heard you stand and sing the song, 'HE is all in my hands and HE's keeping me alive.' I heard you say that HE is all in your feet and HE is keeping you alive. Now aren't you glad that you have a FATHER that can get in your hands, that can get in your feet, that can get in your feet and make them walk, that can get in your eyes and make you see, that can get in your mind and make you think? Aren't you glad? 'HE's all over me and HE's keeping me alive.' It is Wonderful! HE is in every strand of hair. HE is in every fingernail, in every toenail, in every atom and fibre of your bodily form, and that is Jesus, and Jesus is CHRIST, and you say CHRIST is DIVINE. GOD is your FATHER. Now aren't you glad? Aren't you glad? Aren't you glad? All over you and keeping you alive, keeping you alive. It is Wonderful! I AM blessing you in your storehouses. I AM blessing you in your baskets. I AM blessing you in the fruits of your lands, and I AM blessing you in everything. I AM blessing you in whatsoever you do, if you will walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called. The Mouth of the LORD has spoken it.'

 

This Is the Text of the New and Living Epistle

'There is no more occasion to talk about limitation, lacks and wants and poverty and adverse conditions such as oppressions, depressions and things of that kind, for GOD is the Expresser. Mortality may be the oppressor and your mortal opinions may be the depressions, but GOD is the Expresser and the Manifestor of every good and every perfect thing, and GOD is in the midst of thee, child of Infinite Spirit and Love Divine.

'I say, I will speak to you in words, but more so in deeds and in your actions and emotional language, and

'I will put MY Spirit in you, and cause you to walk in MY Statutes.'

This is the text of the new and living epistle that was written last night (at a meeting) that is seen and read of men.

'I will put MY Spirit in you and cause you to walk in MY Statutes.'

Aren't you glad? Thousands and thousands and millions and millions, as Mr. Lanyon in Europe said, every day shall rise and call Thee Blessed. Europe is clamoring for ME. They are sending for ME. They want ME there as a Person, for the Word that they have heard concerning ME and their faith in what they have heard, has made them whole. It has made them successful, it has made them prosperous, it has made them healthy, it has made them wealthy, it has made them wise and an understanding people to know that the Kingdom of GOD has surely come and the Will is now being done on earth among men. Now aren't you glad? It is just Wonderful!'

 

We Preach the Kingdom of GOD and GOD'S Ever presence

'It has made them realize that GOD is a GOD at hand and not a GOD afar off. Then why lack or look up in the sky and why expect to go some place after you die? GOD is a GOD right at hand and not a GOD afar off.

God is a God of the living, and not a God of the dead.'

And blessed are they that will believe this Message, for I will tune your hearts to receive the Message of Truth by getting tuned to your high vibrations of Truth and getting caught up in this atmosphere of the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD. Now it is Wonderful! You are conscious of GOD's Presence. You all are conscious of GOD's Presence. As you go down from this place, remain thou then, conscious of GOD's Presence.

'GOD often spoke of this, speaking it through the prophets of old, and especially one, saying,

'Am I not a God at hand, and not a God afar off?'

Then HE came in the body called Jesus and HE transmuted it to John. John said,

'Repent ye, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.'

It was at hand. Then Jesus the CHRIST, the Love Master, made it a little plainer and a little more distinct, for He said,

'The Kingdom of God is within you.'

Be blessed then to go and preach the Kingdom of GOD. They went forth to preach the Kingdom, not to preach doctrines, isms and schisms, and doctrines of men, but to preach the Kingdom of GOD, and this is what we are preaching, and from henceforth we will preach the Kingdom of GOD, and GOD's Ever Presence here and now in words, but more so in deeds and in actions, and GOD's Omnipotence and Omniscience and Omnipresence, and as I said, I will put His Spirit in you and cause you to walk in His Statutes.

'Then all will be happy even as I AM happy, for no man can say that I have ever asked for a penny, but I have a full and a plenty and to spare, for I have the key to all underground treasures. I have the key to the heart and the souls of men, and the LORD HIMSELF shall dwell with them and shall be with them, and they shall be HIS people. GOD has wiped away all tears from your eyes. I don't see any crying around here. There shall be no more crying, nor any tears there, neither shall there be any more sea, for the former things are passed away. Now aren't you glad? I know you are glad, for the Abundance of the Fullness of the Consciousness of Good, no space is vacant of the fullness thereof. Oh, it is Wonderful! None need lack in GOD's abundance.'

 

You Are Healed Because You Believe

'Paul thus said on one occasion, and a majority of the teachers and leaders have taken Paul as their GOD; they will not even follow Paul as he followed Christ. He said, 'Who is Paul, and who is Apollos?' He made it plain that Paul was nothing but a minister of GOD and that Apollos was nothing but a minister of GOD, but it was GOD or CHRIST that gave the increase. Nevertheless, he said,

'Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.'

That is why you can rejoice, for GOD is at hand. That is why you can be healed of all of your infirmities, for GOD is at hand. You are healed of your infirmities. You are healed because you believe. You are blessed and you are saved, for the Mouth of the LORD hath spoken it, and I say unto you, Go in peace and sin no more, and the glory of GOD will be revealed in you and manifested unto the world. For this cause came I into the world, that you might glorify GOD in your spirits and in your bodies.

'So again I say that as it is written,

'Rejoice, and be glad: for great is your reward in heaven.'

You are healed. Why are you healed? Because you believe that GOD is here. Your faith is what has healed you, and the Spirit of the Presence of GOD has healed you, One of MY often rehearsed mottoes is, The Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the source of all supply, and will satisfy every good desire. When you are conscious of GOD's Presence, Dear Ones, it will create an atmosphere of Love Divine and the creations of this atmosphere are Love Divine. This atmosphere is the Spirit of the Consciousness of GOD's Presence, and it will satisfy every good desire. It will satisfy every good desire, and set you free from all adverse and undesirable conditions that you may be able to glorify GOD in your spirit and in your bodies, which are GOD's. It is Wonderful!

'The Word says, even back in the old book that is commonly known as the Old Testament, it is written,

'In all of their afflictions he was afflicted, but the angel of his presence, healed them.'

When you confidentially and substantiated-ly believe that GOD is Present, the Angel of GOD's Presence will heal you of every complaint, of every adverse and undesirable condition, will set you free and free indeed. The Mouth of the LORD has spoken it.

'In all their afflictions he was afflicted, but the angel of his presence healed them.'

I came to let you know that GOD is in the midst of thee, and GOD is Ever Present. When you are conscious of GOD's Presence, as I say, the Spirit of GOD's Presence, which is the Angel of GOD's Presence, will heal you. He will eradicate every undesirable and every adverse condition. It will adjust matters satisfactorily and you will be abundantly blessed with all of the attributes and all of the Glory of GOD, for you shall have received all of HIS fullness.

 

Why Have Truth Teachers and Leaders?

The above constituted FATHER's talk before a large audience at a meeting in the Bronx where the majority of the people had not heard HIM before. HE concluded by enlarging upon the quotation,

'(and we beheld his glory, as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. And of all of his fullness, have all we received, grace for grace.'

HE told them they had all received the inheritance of the only begotten of the FATHER, and continued:

'Then whence cometh the Truth teachers, and whither go they, for you have beheld all of the fullness of grace and of Truth as the only begotten of the FATHER, with all of the fullness of grace and of Truth. The Word says,

'. . . when he the Spirit of truth has come, he will lead you into all truth:'

and you will need no man to teach you anything. Why then the Truth teachers and the leaders, when you need no man or book to teach you anything?'

The power of the Spirit was so great in the meeting that at his point many fell out under it and the whole audience rose up in an uproar pressing toward FATHER. This made talking impractical, so the rest of the meeting was carried on by singing and the demonstration of the Spirit. As is the usual case, many of us had spoken previous to FATHER's talk, the meeting having started at five o'clock with a full house, and ending at midnight.
