The Infinite Significance of Consecration to the Truth

'It is wonderful to know that through consecration, through self-denial and through concentration and a wholehearted sacrifice for the ideal of life that you claim, it can stamp in the whole universe's mind, the image of your memory and there will always be the time you will be uppermostly reflected and manifested in their mind. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, McKinley and many of the others, are but a slight sketch of a reflection of a percent of a percent of a percent of that percent of that percent of what is the reality of this Truth.'

There Is Nothing to Compare With This Infinite Love!

'The most insignificant of all the earth, by the recognition of the Significant One, and by the conformity, or 'conformation' to the will and the Spirit of the Perfect Idea, and by the recognition of HIM, it tends to cause the Great I AM to recognize you and in your likeness remain a living factor in the hearts and minds of them that have viewed you. Skill cannot attract, and ability of any mortal version cannot compare. There is nothing to compare with it. Not even any human imagination can compare with this Infinite Love that transcends all limitation, yea, even transcends all expressions of limited or limitless expressions of good. It goes far beyond limitations into infinitude, the end you cannot vision. It is beyond the comprehension of the mind's imagination, or at least even its consideration. It is love beyond degrees. It is something to praise GOD for. It is something transcending any expression of even any psychic imagination. It transcends any psychic consideration even, yea, even any psychic imagination, and goes into infinitude, far beyond the psychic imagination or highest consideration. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful!

'What doest it? What causes it? What is it all about? Humanity must know that this Love, or whatsoever it is that is so fascinating and so attracting that it is commanding the attention of so-called men and so-called women in all walks of life, all so-called people, the classes and clans of every description, profession and expression, and appearance--every eye must see HIM and know that it is HE that liveth forever and ever. Must know! What can that be that can beget and produce, and re- beget and produce and create and re-create, carnate and reincarnate such Infinite Love with manifestation? It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! Truly, truly, might have the word or song said, 'It is love beyond degrees.' You can taste of this unmingled Love here now, for this Love fills the souls of men, not one along, as in mortal consciousness, but fills the souls of every one that rightfully contacts it.

'It goes forth with something like an electric touch. It is penetrating the very soil of the soul and the contents of your mind. It illuminates things and changes your attitude toward all things, and transforms your mind and directs it to HIM to Whom it is due, and I hear you say, 'I never will turn back as long as the Heaven is in my view.'

'I have not spoken exactly like this, from this standpoint of view in consideration, taking it sincerely in consideration as I AM now, recently in modern times from a Personal standpoint of view. But when you can see thousands and thousands of people coming out from every so-called nation, every so-called tribe, in appearance and expression of life, and they all can behold that which they seek and can realize that seeming electric and magic touch of life that transforms the heart and the minds, and regenerates both it and them, it is Wonderful!'

 

The Power of Love

' Then do you say you feel this Love? Then do you love GOD? Then you say you love ME. From whence cometh such Love, pure incorruptible and undefiled Love; Love that is pure and unadulterated, Love that is unselfish, Love that it is not necessary to purify and purge, for there is no dross in it. It is love that came from the Soul of GOD and touched the soul of men. That is why you saw ME. That is why you love ME so, Are you ashamed to own this Love? Even if you are ashamed of this Love, this Love is beyond degrees. There is nothing to compare with it. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! You know you never loved a man like you love ME. You know you never loved a woman like you love ME. You know you never loved a mother like you love GOD.

'This Love illuminates your every thought. It fills and thrills every avenue of your soul and penetrates every vein, every organ, and every muscle, every sinew and every bone. Yea, it fills every cell and every atom and every fibre of your bodily form. It transforms you. It is purifying, it is petrifying, it is filling every cell of your bodily form, it is healing to your body and soul for they are one. Upon such a wonderful Principle and Foundation this Work is done, for you first taste of this unmingled Love.

'You got joy here without a fear and joy without a tear, so I wiped all tears from ;your eyes. I said, 'Weep no more, Mary, now do not cry.' I said, 'Live forever now, do not die.' I say 'The Kingdom has come on the earth; now do not fly.' This Love consumes every mortal version, every personal idea, every false belief, every undesirable condition and every adverse condition; it sets the prisoner free. I could see then as I expressed the manifestation of MY expression in appearance there, how it is with one, so with millions and millions and millions. Oh, it is Wonderful! Think about it! It is something that is really the conscious realization of the materialization of Love. It fills and thrills you, it penetrates, it saturates, it vigorates, it vibrates, it responds from the soul of men to the Soul of GOD when it is called. It responds from the soul of humanity to the Soul of GOD when it is called, and who can help it? You cannot help it! 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 Statues.

'Truly might someone have said, 'Bewitched thou them all,' or better known in modern times, hypnotized them all. Truly, how can you avoid being hypnotized by this great magnetic Love, by this great magnetic current of Love that goes forth and with seeming magic touch, transforms the world beyond its control or beyond its power to ask or say or do or be, for the Spirit and the Power of the LORD is upon you. It has regenerated you. It has born you again. You are made new. Now look at GOD beautifying you to express HIMSELF through the pores of your skin, out of your beautiful eyes, and thinking out of your beautiful mind. It is Wonderful!

'It is Wonderful! You know it must take a tremendous amount of electrical power to move so many souls all in the same direction. It is evident that it is something more than common. GOD must have quite a lot of Love, mustn't He, to generate so much Love and regenerate so much Love, produce and reproduce so much Love, carnate and reincarnate so much Love and manifest and re-manifest so much Love, and causing that mighty Love. You know you never loved anybody so much before in your life. So that should be enough to let you see and know. You know you could not love anybody like you do ME.'

 

An Antagonistic Mind Brings Destruction

After there had been some discussion at the Table about certain methods used by Bishop Lawson in New York to combat FATHER's Teachings, FATHER spoke. HE told the story of the lamb and the goats on the bridge, of how the lamb met a goat on a narrow bridge and the goat reared up to fight him for the right of way and how the lamb stooped down and passed underneath him, of how the goat then met another goat and both reared up to oppose each other and both fell into the water and were drowned. HE continued:

'Meek and lowly is the way. I don't have to defend MYSELF or protect MYSELF in any way. I have condescended to say words to give others information that would tend to be in MY defense. Even from a legal procedure, yea, from legal procedures, if I could suffer death without saying anything, greater would be your reward, for the sacrifice that is made is not by the will of man, nor by the will of flesh, but of GOD. And He, the CHRIST Consciousness was led as a lamb to the slaughter, dumb as a sheep before her shearers and He opened not His mouth HE knew He had power within Himself to petition His FATHER and HE would bring down legions of Angels. But it was to be as it was, and as it is.

'As a man said once, it was a story told about a man hunting and he went into the woods and he saw a woodpecker pecking away and there were two men, and one said, 'Shoot him,' and the other said, 'Let him keep on pecking and he will kill himself after awhile.' Now, I don't have to do anything. I don't have to kill anybody.

'He that smitest with the sword shall perish by the sword.'

It is the same thought with Bishop Lawson, he knows it is. By his own sword he will perish, the same as with Saul. He will call on his spirits, he will call on some that have gone on before him, as did Saul, but the message of the Spirit of GOD that had gone on before him, he will get the same message that Saul got, 'Tomorrow you will be sleeping with your fathers.' That is what the Spirit will tell him. I don't have to tell him that. It is Wonderful! Samuel was a righteous king, but the spirit of his righteousness, the spirit of his honor, still carried the message in response to the request of Saul, and Saul got the answer very quickly that, 'Tomorrow you will sleep with your fathers.' And he fell on his own sword.

'So now when he falls, great will be the fall of him or they that try to knock GOD, and it is better, as the old folks used to say years ago, 'Never mind, GOD will fix you.' They didn't know any better, and they would pray for you, don't you know; they would pray for GOD to kill you because they thought it was wrong for them to kill you. That is the way they thought. But I don't have to do any of those things. His own mind, his own thoughts will be his destruction and it has been. And as was spoken to his members--I knew that when he said I would be there and sent out that report, he told MY students there, thinking he would embarrass them--I knew that My Spirit would be there and rise up maybe in his so-called wife. I will make MY Spirit rise up in his so-called wife. That is the idea. I can go through any door that is shut. I don't have to fight with the sword and I will not fight evil with evil, but will overcome evil with good, for I will bless his members and then I will overcome him by blessing them, maybe saving his wife.'

 

I Will Put My Spirit In Them and Cause Them to Walk in My Statutes

'As MY text was last night, as recorded in the new living Epistle that is seen and read of men: 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. That is MY most recent composed motto, of which I say you will find it as a text in the textbook of the new Epistle that is seen and read of men, but not written with pen and ink. I have not written that with pen and ink, but I have written it on the fleshly tablet of the heart by the Spirit of the Living GOD. At St. John's M. E. Church in Brooklyn the other night I composed that. It was, and it is, written in the textbook of the new and living Epistle that is seen and read of men, and that was the text that I spoke from last night mainly: 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.

'So I have no time to use the sword that perisheth, neither to use destructive forces. I have not got time to use cursings, but rather blessing you fully and freely with blessings, and if you need a cursing, why, I can bless someone that is by you, and it will be a curse to you. I don't have to curse you, I have no cursing in ME, but I can bless someone that is nearby you. And because they are blessed and because they are taken from you, that will be a cursing to you and yet I will not have to curse you, but will be full of blessing, and fulfill that part of the Scripture,

'Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good,'

and by MY so doing, I will heap coals of fire on their heads. He claims he wants them to have the Holy Ghost. Well, I will see that they have it. I will answer his prayer now. I will let them have the Holy Ghost. I will light them up by the Holy Ghost, but not in his name. So that is just Wonderful!'

 

I Must Manifest the Perfect Way So No One Will Stumble Or Lose Their Faith

'I have not got time to think, or even so much as utilize MY Thoughts for such as would be confusion, combatments, and such as that. It is Wonderful! The only thing of course, as I say, I gave Mr. Smith of the New York Age, a letter to publish and I meant that, because it was stressed; now think about it. As I before said, there are about 3,500,000 people believing on ME and calling on ME, recorded, and if I fail to reflect and manifest the perfect way, the imperfect way may cause thousands of bodies and souls combined, which is one, to be lost, for their faith is what has made them whole.

'When you believed on ME you were healed, if you were sick, and if you for any cause disbelieve on ME, you may get sick, and I don't want to cause anyone to stumble or have any occasion for stumbling. That is why I don't will to do anything-- not for MY sake. If it were not for your sake and for the sake of the general public that believes on ME, if it were not for that, I could go out and fight with a man if I wanted to, could do what I pleased without condemnation, but that is not in ME and therefore, I have not that nature. It is Wonderful! But if I willed to do so I could do it without condemnation in the least for who can condemn GOD? It is Wonderful!

'So that is why that I desire to let the Light shine that will express and manifest the CHRIST before the mental eye of the general public, that they may visualize the perfect state and not materialize the imperfect. For what you visualize concerning ME, the nature of that condition, perfect or imperfect, the positive or the negative, will be produced in you and in your lives and will be manifested unto the world. So it is essential for you to have faith for your sakes, not for MINE. I have everything! I have everything! I AM not seeking any friends, any social standing or political standing, or anything like that; I have everything. I AM not seeking any parties or any organizations or anything of that kind; I have everything that I want, but for your sakes I stand a living sacrifice and as an infirmity-bearer and as one to bear your burdens in the heat of the day. So that is why I do these thing and try to be them in a way, that you might not have an occasion to doubt, that you might not have an occasion to fear or disbelieve, for your doubts and your fears and your unbelief is what would cause you to fall.'

'Eyes have not heard, and ears have not seen, the things that GOD has prepared for them that love HIM, for eyes can hear and ears can see.'

 

How To Overcome Death

'If you live a righteous life and death comes and you don't give in to it, if you don't give up the Ghost, you cannot die. If you don't give up, he will never take you away. Greater is he that is in you than all they that are in the world. So if you live the Life of CHRIST, why, he cannot even come near your dwelling place. Now look at Mr. Joseph. Look at how he gets around, look how young he looks. He is just as young, and he can jump around like a young boy. He shall return to the days of his youth. So you don't need to fear death nor dread any d-v-ls, nor h--l. If you live the Life of CHRIST, death has no sting. And if it has no sting, even if it comes upon you, you can concentrate on the CHRIST Consciousness and overcome it. Even if your body is falling right down in death, if it has no sting you are able to concentrate on the CHRIST Consciousness and overcome death. You can cast it out. Machine guns could not kill ME, lynch mobs could not kill ME, nothing could kill ME, because I would not give up the Ghost.'

 

Power In the Depths of Humility and Ignorance

'Do you know there is some power in the depths of ignorance? Out of the insignificance of nothing has come the significance of something. There is power in the very depths of ignorance. It is wonderful to know that you have all of that. It is such a wonderful blessing to know that you are the expression of GOD from the depths of ignorance to the heights of intelligence; from the depths of folly to the heights of devotion; and all power is given unto you in Heaven and in earth. Knowing that, you are able to comprehend with all saints, and as it is written so often, 'Low is the way,' and the energy and vigor of GOD so often is in that which you would esteem not.

'Not many wise, not many mighty, are called: Hath not God taken the dumb things of this world to confound the wise?'

'GOD talks not in the language of sound, but in the meaning of it. I thought of that last night when we were speaking about John Jasper (a preacher formerly well known in New York on account of his bad grammar but forceful preaching) and his poor grammar. I thought about every energy of GOD, when it is expressed with the greatest vigor, so often it comes from the depths of humility and the depths of ignorance, so far as human intelligence is concerned.

'You are so privileged to contact this great Universal Mind Substance and to know the fullness of the abundance of GOD. I don't care if you didn't know a letter of the English alphabet, you can mentally and spiritually contact, and you can so attune to these vibrations of Truth and tune in on these subjects of the Light of GOD and these special subjects of this Infinite School of Life. On any subject you can tune in, and you can express the fullness of the abundance of both it and them, if you seek after such things, for,

'when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth . . . and you will need no man to teach you.'

'HE will lead you and guide you and you will need no man to teach you; and I will make you the head and not the tail. And yet, with all simplicity and all understanding of the majesty of GOD you can express this Infinite Love beyond degrees. Then if there seemingly be a lack of expression of any desirable, or seemingly desirable expression of GOD's Light, Life and Understanding, from any angle or on any subject in this great Infinite School of Life, you can so tune yourself to whatsoever subject you desire, you can produce the expression from whatsoever subject in this Infinite School of Life, and prove the Omnipotence of GOD, as GOD in you, the expresser of HIMSELF. Then you will not be ashamed.

'I believe some day you will not be ashamed to own ME as if I were your Pastor. For I may some day, if necessary, tune in on some subjects in this great Infinite School of Life that is expressing the different subjects of life, from the educational world down to the world of ignorance and non-intelligence. It is Wonderful! Something to praise GOD for.'

 

The Lowly Gospel of CHRIST Is Authority That Proceeds From the Omniscience of GOD'S Love

'Thank GOD for that which seems not to be, and that which seems not to be will appear, for, 'Just beyond your highest affirmation lies the field of endless joy beyond degrees.' When you make your high affirmations of these truths of the expressions of good, higher and higher, the confirmation can meet you there by the Spirit of the Omniscient One, for Omniscience is nothing but GOD.

'Truly might have one said, 'Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing God's praise.' Someone realizes that it is the Fount of every blessing for it is not advocating depressions, but the expression of GOD, the expression of good, and therefore, you can say it is the Fount that is overflowing with the Omniscience of GOD's Love, with the Omnipotence of GOD's Love. It has power to move mountains within you when you rightfully make the contact and live in conformity to the same. It is Wonderful! So there is no end to this Infinite Truth, and after awhile you will not be ashamed of it.

'There was a place the Apostle Paul got to, although he was a highly learned man; he got caught up in the vibrations and he said,

'Of the gospel of Christ I am not ashamed, for it is the power of God unto salvation.'

There would have been an embarrassment if he would have allowed himself to be embarrassed; if he had thought of the ignorance of those that came before him and those that worked with him. But he was caught up in the high vibrations of Truth and he caught a glimpse of the lowliness of the Spirit of CHRIST that was in those so-called ignorant and unlearned men. He saw that it was knowledge and understanding that transcended the human intellect and therefore, he said,

'I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:'

for he found out that it was authority and authority proceeds forth and comes through the Spirit of the Omnipotent One, and it is the Omniscience of GOD's Love. It is Wonderful! Therefore, he said,

'I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to all those that believe.'
'How great and marvelous are thy works, O God, for great and holy is thy name.'

It is Wonderful! No one can comprehend the depths and the breadth and the heights of the depths of the Infinite One, and of HIM you are not ashamed. Once you might have been ashamed, but when you come to this conscious realization of the materialization of GOD, and GOD being Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, why all of your ashamedness or embarrassment is turned into the sea of forgetfulness.

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

Love beyond degrees is now being unfolded unto you and unto all, and in this Love is the source of all supply, for it is the Spirit there, of the consciousness of GOD's Presence. It is Wonderful!'

 

It Is Better To Know You Are Nothing Than to See GOD In Yourself

It is a great thing to be meek and lowly in heart. Greater is he that dwells in the meekness of the Spirit within than he that dwells in the haughtiness of the heart, for it is written, 'The meek shall inherit the earth.' You will inherit material things on the material plane if you will be meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest in that for your soul. There are so many that have been misled and so many that have claimed GOD in their highest testimonies and yet they have fallen short of the Glory of GOD, and they even testified the same as has been often spoken in the meetings. You hear some say, 'You must know GOD in yourself.' Now that is a mistake. That is the spirit of self-exaltation that will separate you from GOD. I said,

'Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.'

and,

'Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.'

The first thing for you to do is to see GOD in someone else. 'Whom say the people that I am, Peter?' Now it is just to the reverse of that. Some will say that, and they have separated themselves from the sweetness of the Spirit. It is better to be GOD and not know it, than not to be GOD and know it. It is Wonderful! Now you see it has been said so often, 'See GOD in yourself, then you can see HIM in somebody else.' That is a selfish method, and through that selfishness you will dishonor and beset yourself if you are not careful. But the meekness of CHRIST may see GOD in Someone else and not know it is the same One, and if you see HIM rightfully in someone else, why you are the same one. But when HE first comes, they say, 'Look on us.' That has been said so much. 'You have to see GOD in yourself,' and then you don't see ME, or, 'Don't see FATHER DIVINE,' it has been said. It is immaterial to ME, whether you see ME as GOD or not, but it is a blessing that you see GOD in somebody though it is only a chicken. Then you are boastfully seeing GOD in yourself and rising up in the temple of GOD boastfully claiming to be GOD before you can see GOD in someone else.

'Whom say the people that I am, Peter?'
'Some say thou art Elias: some, John the Baptist; and some, one of the prophets.'
'But whom say ye that I am?'
'I say that thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.'

That is the foundation of the Church that 'the gates of h--l cannot prevail against.' That is why you have been successful that have seen GOD in someone else rather than confining HIM to yourselves.

'Upon this rock will I build my church:'

upon this Principle, this Light, upon this Understanding, the Love GOD concerning you. See GOD in someone else and then I know that you are the same one. It is better for you to know that you are nothing than to see GOD in yourself.

'When you are something in words and in your testimony, when you exalt yourselves, why then that is all you are. Just in words, but not in deeds and in actions and in mind.

'Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.'

Not that I AM saying this for honor or praise, because I have all the honor I want. I have all of it, and MY Spirit and MY Mind predominates over the whole universe of the mind of mankind and it is triumphant and it will go forth conquering and to conquer, with or without the Body. That is what I AM talking about, and that is the great significance of the Omnipotence of GOD.'

 

My Mind, My Ways, My Views and My Opinions Predominate

'Not that you have to say, 'What will become of you if FATHER DIVINE goes?' How can I go when I AM in every mind and in every heart? I AM in the chilly breeze that blows. And when you breathe in, you are breathing in life and pace, and health and love, and when you exhale, you are exhaling Jesus is CHRIST and CHRIST is GOD. Therefore, how can I go any place? That is the great significance of this realization, that can be materialized spontaneously at will. That is the great significance of this mighty Work, that you might know that you are not talking about man as the mortal mind sees ME limited to this Personal expression, but you are talking about the Omnipotence and Omnipresence of GOD. Talking about this Presence that can penetrate your every cell, every fibre, every atom, this Spirit and this Life is what you truly now are, and everyone that is receptive to this inspiration and this Truth, I say they will be partakers of this contagious enlightenment of the Omnipresence of God. And then you are not worried, whether you see this present appearance or not, but you know that I AM just as operative without the Body as if you see this Personal appearance.

'I AM giving you something that is incorruptible, something that fadeth not away, for MY Mind shall continue triumphant for it is the Omnipotence, Omnipresence and Omniscience of GOD. Then on this Foundation you have nothing to fear. I go where I please and I stay where I please; and yet I reign and predominate over the consciousness of the spirit of men and they will realize consciously that MY Mind and MY ways, MY views and MY opinion predominate. They are conscious of it. They are conscious that when I will it in the great ether, if they breathe at all they must breathe in MY Will, and it must change the condition of things, for the government is upon HIS shoulders. That is what I AM talking about!

'Then whether I say a word, or whether I AM in Europe or Africa in this appearance, or whether I be any place in expression in this Personal appearance or any, to you and even to those that believe not. I AM the same, and I AM just as operative and I AM just as Omnipotent and I AM just as operative as I before said, as I AM when you see My Personal appearance. That is the great significance of the Omnipotence of GOD. That is the great significance of all these Works. That is why I said, it is not necessary that you must contact ME Personally, for I came to bring to your realization the Omnipotence and the Omnipresence and the Omniscience of GOD, through bringing into your consideration and realization the materialization of GOD.

'Knowing that the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the source and the supply of every good and desirable gift and expression, you have nothing to falter for and nothing to fear, for I AM with you always and there is no end to the world. Even the prayer speaks of 'the world without an end,' and this world that you have now entered into is without an end. It is Wonderful! When you are conscious of ME, with or without the Body, you will be just as faithful, just as true, just as devout and loving and kind on every phase of life, and in every expression wherein I stand and have called you to.

'Then if need be that I chose to materialize these expressions of Truth as I have materialized MYSELF, MY Personal expression will always be accepted as the Personal Life of MY Impersonal Life; will be accepted as well as MY Personal Presence, for they are one. On this basis there would be no reason to falter nor fear, even if all material expressions should disappear. You would know that I AM Mind, I AM Spirit, Omnipotent, Incorruptible, Undefiled and that fadeth not away, and I AM just as operative without eh Personal appearance as I AM with the Personal appearance. It is Wonderful! Then you will be substantiated in faith, you will be unshaken in confidence, it matters not what might come or go. It matters not if all material expressions on earth would be obliterated, you would be substantiated in faith and unshaken in confidence as you would be with all of the visible expressions of GOD in your personal presence. On this foundation nothing can shake you.'

 

How Can I Go?

' Then if one talks about, 'What if FATHER goes?' How can I go? You would say in the words of the melody composed in 1917 when I was in Brooklyn, 'HE lives in me, my Holy, Eternal FATHER, HE lives in me. HE lives in me, HE lives in me, my Holy Eternal FATHER, HE lives in me.' That would be your great battle-axe when anyone tried to tell you that you and I were separated. You can proclaim it wheresoever you go, you can proclaim it in the fields, in the valleys and on the mountain tops. That is the great significance of MY getting in your lives and reigning and ruling in your affairs, that I may be just as operative in MY Personal absence as in MY Personal Presence, that you may be the outward expression of the condition of the mind within, the Omnipotence of GOD your FATHER; and

'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.'

And you will have no occasion to falter and no occasion to fear, for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it, and GOD has wiped away all tears.

'And then, as I told the district attorney in the recent so-called arrests, persecution, prosecution or execution, it is all the same to ME, for I AM living in the hearts of men. If MY Spirit would will for this Body to go through a Personal execution, it would be immaterial to ME, for I AM just as operative without the Body as I AM with the Body. No one really does know, humanly speaking, where that body called Jesus, in that personal appearance is, but yet the work continues to go on and has added millions and millions to the church since the crucifixion and the disappearance of it. And MY Spirit and MY Mind, MY Life and MY Love, which I AM, is just as operative today as it was then.

'So you see that is the great consolation, and nothing can shake you because you know it has been brought into the fullness of expression with or without the Body, and it will always be the same. GOD will always appear to humanity in the likeness of Divine. GOD will always reign on the spiritual and in the psychic plane and in the spiritual realm of observation, in this Personal likeness. When humanity sees in a dream, the GOD, even of the whole earth, they will see this appearance.'

 

GOD Molds HIMSELF In Your Likeness When You Conform Your Will To His

'Now that is not just because I AM in some way as a Person different from you. It is Wonderful! When you form anything in a mold or pattern, in the likeness that you it in, it will be like that. When you form butter or jello in the likeness of the mold that you mold it in, it will be like that. When you form yourself in the likeness of the mold that you mould it in it will be like that. When you form your money, in the likeness of the mould that you mold it in, it will be like that. GOD condescends to mold and shape HIMSELF in the likeness of you when you conform ;your will to HIS. GOD will shape HIMSELF in your likeness and will go out from you in your personal appearance. You are the mold, if you shape your lives mentally and spiritually in the fashion that I have shown you on the mountain. Then the Life of CHRIST will be re-formed in your likeness. As you have formed yourself in His likeness mentally and spiritually, He will form Himself in your likeness physically and GOD will appear from place to place and from time to time, for you have denied your individual mental and spiritual views for the Christ's views, and He has denied His personal expression and appearance for your personal appearance, and His views then are yours. His Spirit and His Mind then are yours. They are yours. And your likeness and your personal appearance is His. That is the way it is.

'So therefore, Christ will appear looking just like a little woman, a big woman, an ugly man, a little man, a big man.

'Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God
. . . and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.'

That is the significance, for He will form Himself in the likeness of those that will subjugate their spirit and their mind and their body to the Spirit and the Mind of GOD.'

 

Thoughts For Consideration

'You are now assembled in the presence of the nobles, yea, the noblest of all the earth; the spirits of noble men, and the just and the perfect and the upright, HE that liveth forever and forever. Truly, might the Apostle have said on one occasion,

'The general assembly of the church of the firstborn . . . where the spirits of just men are made perfect.'

These noble spirits and minds cannot be made perfect without us. I have brought you into expression to perfect the perfection of these noblemen. I say, I have brought you into expression to perfect the expression of these noblemen. You can jot that down in your vocabulary, if you will. It is Wonderful!

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

The very name of GOD is able to accomplish all that is necessary, on the mental plane, on the physical plane, on the natural plane, or whatsoever plane, through the cosmics, through the Infinite One that lives forever and forever. Every one of you can enjoy the fullness of GOD if you will live in accordance with the same. Relax your conscious mentality, your personal ideas and opinions and know that they are a thing of the past. You must eradicate everything that existed in your consciousness before time and recognize that which is uppermost in your consciousness now.'

 

CHRIST Is Purifying and Petrifying Your Body For HIMSELF To Dwell In

'By recognizing only One, you are influxed with the fluid that went out from Jesus when the woman touched the hem of His garment, that is the holy balm, the healing balm, of salvation to the world. As you pump your automobile tires, so you bring into actuality and reality the limitless blessings of Spirit in your own selves, and fill and thrill you, and as I sang that song a little while ago, 'All in your joints, your sinews, your bones and your veins.' In your automobile tires and tubes that are pumped up, they do not get the influx of the air in the tubes of the tires, but this is greater than that because it gets in every atom and every cell, and every fibre of your bodily form. And therefore, how can you die when you recognize the presence of GOD in every pore of your skin; in every atom, every fibre and cell, GOD is working therein to beautify you and petrify you holy.

'How can you be sick when you realize that GOD is there, beautifying you with HIS Holiness? Now look at your beautiful skin. It is Wonderful! It is more precious than a beautifier of the skin, it is more precious than the precious gems of Europe. It is Wonderful! How beautiful it is to see the CHRIST in the pores of your skin. You cannot see it with your physical, mortal, human eye, unless you put on the spiritual, mental microscopic lens of salvation, and then you can see and really get the interpretation. You can see the CHRIST working through every pore of your skin . . . it is CHRIST in there purifying and petrifying your body for HIMSELF to dwell in.

'A good painter, when he paints a house, he rubs the paint all in the pores of the wood and then when the rain and the storms of winter come that paint will protect it and prohibit the wood even from so much as decaying. Greater is HE that is within, HE that is painting you than the beautifier of complexion. Just look at HIM now, just beautifying your beautiful skin, beautiful for GOD to look at. Better not think that you want to be beautiful for some mortal woman to look at, or some mortal man to look at, but you want to be beautiful for GOD, that GOD may glorify HIMSELF in you and that you may glorify GOD in your soul, in ;your spirit and in your body, for they are one. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! You can't help it, can you? And I don't care if you do. It is Wonderful! This is so fascinating the whole world has one after it. They will not be satisfied until they contact and receive it.'

 

You Won't Be Satisfied Until You Find the FATHER

'Truly might have Philip spoken for the whole world and for the whole of mankind generally, saying,

'Show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.'

Philip may have been unconscious of the significance of that word that came to him from the FATHER which was in him, but I AM conscious of the word, for I know from whence it came. It came from the depths of humility and simplicity of the spirit of man to GOD, and it has gone forth to GOD and back to mankind.

'Show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.'

You have never been and never would be satisfied until you see the FATHER. You may see all of the intelligence of the Heaven and all of the intelligence of the earth, and you may come under the altar and find Him that crept out from under the altar to loosen the seals of the Book, but still you won't be satisfied until you find the FATHER. But when and where and here and now that shall have been accomplished in your consciousness and your conviction, why then, you gain the conscious realization of GOD's manifestation and that is the perfect personal satisfaction to your body, as well as to your mind and you sit down in perfect peace and I keep them in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on ME. You don't want anything else either.'

 

'You May Have All the World But Give ME Jesus'

'In all of the world then, and verifying the declaration of the Christian world as brought forth by one, saying, 'You may have all of the world, but give me Jesus.' This has been brought forth of the manifestation of GOD and manifested in your consciousness. You don't care anything about the world when you get GOD and Jesus and the Holy Ghost all in One. Now that is in you and in everyone, all in your joints and your sinews and keeping you alive. And this is what you realize and others realize, the outward expression of the condition of MY Mind of competent-ness, being so competent, being so devout and being so faithful and being so true, and yet with all jolliness and with all happiness and all peace and with all glee you can serve GOD in your souls and in your bodies. Now aren't you glad? Because you do not have to think that it is when we go to church or go out some place, but you are conscious of it and as I often say, the majority of the people cannot preach so well with their own people as they can with others that know nothing about them. And I say it is wonderful, because Mother can endorse the Spirit of the CHRIST here more than some of you and those who have come near to ME, they are nearer the more they see of GOD. But it is just the reverse in mortal consciousness, the nearer you get to a person, the more you see of a man, the farther you get away from him. You see more of men and you disregard them more. But you regard ME, because I live, you also live. But even if there was mortal consciousness in your views, and if you were recognizing all classes of materiality and seeing mortality in ME and disregarding ME as an Individual and as a Person, it would be all right anyway, for there are 3,500,000 calling on ME. And they are increasing daily. I don't have to say anything, they are increasing daily.
