Man's Extremity Is GOD'S Opportunity

 

It is true, as it is written, and it is just as true as practically every Christian, not only Christians, but practically every religious person believes. It is true that David said,

'Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does he meditate day and night. He shall be as a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth its fruit in its season; and its leaves shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE,Sayville

FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE, Sayville

I have verified that in reality, in and among the children of men at the time of so-called depressions, at the time of so-called hard times, at the time of so- called limited degrees of the expression of man when so-called sickness and disease have a free access over the children of men apparently, - the times of the end apparently. They said that there would be a time such as had not been since the foundation of the world, a time when there would be so much trouble and so many disasters, a time when the world is in such a chaotic condition. At this very moment, GOD expressed HIMSELF. At the time of man's depression is the time for GOD's expression. At the time of man's limitations is the time of GOD's expression. At the time of man's limitation is the time of GOD's demonstration. Now aren't you glad? Man's extremity is GOD's opportunity, and I AM so glad because man has come to his wit's end and GOD has inspired him, yea, HE has even inspired his wit with the inspiration of Truth that will quality him to enjoy the beautiful life and love and blessing of GOD that is in the storehouse for the souls of the children of men. It is Wonderful!

That recalled to MY consideration, another motto that was composed when I looked out and I saw thousands and thousands of souls that would gather to see and hear the Message as being expressed, for they would see it manifested in bodies and they would hear it in deeds and in actions.

When I would see that so often, I was compelled to think, and as I thought deeply into that mystery, the Spirit brought it to MY consideration as a Message to the world:

The Abundance of the Fullness of the Consciousness of Good, no space is vacant of the fullness thereof.

and this is but a sketch of a reflection of a percent of a percent of a percent of the outer expression of the condition of the mind within. It is the outpicturing of a sketch of a reflection of a percent of a percent of a percent of the limitless blessings that I have in storehouse for the souls of the children of men.

When you can see, affirm it, and GOD will confirm it, for if you ask, GOD will give If you affirm that you have that which you have asked for, GOD will confirm. And if you give thanks for that which you have received and see not, GOD will increase it. If you give praises, GOD will multiply and there will be no end to the abundance of the fullness of the consciousness of good, for they are being multiplied every day by as many more. And that is why they are coming from all parts of the world.



The LORD Is In Hand's Reach

They have made Sayville, or did make Sayville an international, interdenominational and interracial Shrine, yet I did not advocate that, because I know that the contact should not be from a material standpoint of view, but be in heart and in mind. Make your mental and spiritual contact. It is not that one must contact ME Personally, or come to ME Personally, as GOD is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, hence, a present help in every need. You can reach HIM wheresoever you are, and GOD can reach you wheresoever you are, for GOD is present everywhere. Therefore, you can make your moderation known unto all men that the LORD is at hand, in hand's reach, and you can reach HIM wheresoever you are, and you can rejoice wheresoever you are It is Wonderful!

We can rejoice because we know that it is true. We can actually say truthfully that we have peace, and we do see that the LORD is good, not only on the material plane, but on the spiritual plane, not only on the spiritual plane but on the psychic plane. Of course, we know that we have access through the psychics into the spiritual, and through the spiritual, to GOD. It is Wonderful! Then all things work together for good to them that love GOD.

I spoke in a word last night, I brought out a seeming mystery which is no mystery, but it appears to be a mystery, or appeared a mystery to the human mind when first unfolded; I spoke of Judge Smith. I said that he said, 'You want to tell me that this m-a-n can heal the sick, well then, if HE can heal the sick, then HE can make the well sick.' That is what he stressed and tried to pass an insinuation that I did make the well sick, for he said that Mr. Lamb and Miss Rest here, and others of MY co-workers, students, patients and friends were deteriorating mentally, spiritually and physically and other wise, but especially pointed to them as well as others that were with ME. He wished to stress the point of view as if they were lowering their standard to be with ME and thereby I was making them sick mentally and intellectually and socially, etc., but they stressed it of ME, as if though it was of ME. (Interruption, after which FATHER did not continue.)



FATHER'S Money Is In GOD'S Presence

Still continuing in the dining room of Mrs. Mayo in Washington, FATHER was asked when the crowd came in, whether HE wished to move into another room. FATHER said, The vibrations are higher at times wheresoever you are staying at.

In answer to the question asked at Mrs. Mayo's Where do YOU get YOUR money from? FATHER replied:

When we are conscious of GOD's Presence, when we are conscious that GOD is with us at all times and in all places, the spirit of that consciousness is the source of all supply, and it will satisfy every good desire. That is absolute truth. It is absolute truth. It is absolutely true. If mankind would come to that place in consciousness to realize that GOD is with them and within them, a great burden would be rolled away. When the Word plainly says, 'Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and thou shalt find rest for they soul.' When mankind realizes that its rest is in CHRIST and its rest is in GOD, oh, how happy the whole world will be to realize it. When we realize that wheresoever we are, even though we may be behind stone prison walls and iron prison bars, yet we will have that rest, sweet peace and rest. We will be happy and satisfied, with Jesus, to be alone. It is Wonderful! When You Are Poised and Peaceful, GOD In the People Will Hear What You say

One of those present at Mrs. Mayo's who had also been to Sayville, testified that FATHER held up a train for her when she was late in arriving at the station in Sayville to return to New York.

The train had pulled into the station some time before she arrived, but it waited until FATHER had put her on board. FATHER remarked:

They will do that because it is true that the peace of GOD can rule in your hearts. Be at peace with GOD and with mankind and all, and be peaceful in your own hearts and in your own minds, and the peace of GOD will rule, but not excitement, or fear, or worry. Confusion cannot rule rightfully and righteously, but the peace of GOD can rule. Any time one becomes absolutely poised and peaceful in heart and in mind, and will speak the Word, knowing that it is I that speaks within them, GOD will hear what they say in those that they are coming in contact with, and they will respond in a harmonious way. It is Wonderful!



Heaven Is Not A Place But A State of Mind

FATHER then sang a song, So many blessings you cannot count them all, continuing with One million blessings, you cannot count them all, and so up to decillions of decillions of blessings, you cannot count them. Then HE said,

Now that is actually MY experience. I candidly say that there are millions of blessings and you cannot count them all. And even if you enumerate up to decillions and then say decillions times decillions, I still say you cannot count them all, for the blessings of GOD are past finding out. They are beyond the comprehension of the human mind. You cannot count them all. I often think of it, and then I think about how far it is from here to Heaven the way man has described Heaven to be. It is Wonderful!

In the last century, or in the last generation, we may say, the last twenty years, we know that there have been many discoveries, so-called discoveries and the astronomers have even seen stars and so-called heavenly bodies that had not been seen or known before. We read so, even about the Twin Plaskett stars. They are supposed to be only fifty-eight quadrillion miles away, and remember, that light-rate speed is l86,000 miles per second and it would take ten thousand years for light rays to descend from those stars to this planet, which would be to say, according to the figure of fifty-eight quadrillion miles away, we could run around this earth at the identical same rate of speed, l86,000 miles per second, we could run around this earth seven times in one second, and then have a little time to rest, and starting from this earth at the same rate of speed, it would take ten thousand years to get there.

This, I call to your attention, not especially to you here, but to convey the thought to you that is what I convey to the general public, endeavoring to get their mind out of the imaginary skies and to get their mind out of the imaginary Heaven some place. I often say that, if light-rate speed at the rate of l86,000 miles per second would take ten thousand years to get to this planet, then what of those other planets or heavenly bodies, or whatsoever they may be called, that are thousands of thousands of quadrillion of miles beyond them? The human teachings have been that GOD was in the sky some place above all of the heavenly bodies or stars or planets. Then when would we get to that Heaven?

So I came to convey the thought to the public that we have been taught how to get to that Heaven. Not by getting to it in the way of your preconceived ideas of going to Heaven, for Heaven is not a place geographically to be seen, or to be had in any way, or to be traveled to geographically, but Heaven is a state of mind. Hence, Jesus, the great Love Master, taught us to pray in that prayer He taught us,

'Let thy kingdom come, and they will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.'

For it has been for years and centuries back, far away in the imaginary Heaven, far from the human comprehension, and mankind thought that they must go there, and that was imagination. But the Spirit of this Truth concerning GOD and HIS Majesty, yea, with HIS Infinite Love is, that He so loved the world, that he gave his son . . . . and his Son has taught us to pray to,

'Let they kingdom come.'

And the Kingdom has truly come and the will is now being done here and now on this earth, not any more in imagination, but in the conscious realization of GOD's Presence. We can rejoice in it. We can rejoice because we realize that GOD is present here and there and everywhere. We can rejoice because we realize that if we call for HIM, as was said by the Apostle, we know that whatsoever we ask we receive it because we believe in Him. It is Wonderful!

We are conscious of GOD's Kingdom here and now on earth. Therefore, we do not need to say or think any more within ourselves, that we must go to some far off distant place to find the Kingdom of GOD, for the Kingdom has truly come and the will is now being done. And if we will live, each one of us, an Evangelical Life, exactly according to the Life and Teachings of CHRIST, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and let this mind be in you, that was also in Him, you will produce and reproduce the Kingdom of GOD in your own lives, and each and every individual will be the Kingdom of GOD manifested among men.



Bring Forth the CHRIST and Manifest HIM To the World

This wonderful Kingdom is manifested from within to the expression of the without in deeds and in actions, for actions speak louder than words. I say, actions speak louder than words. Therefore, I often quote the new and the living Epistle which has said,

'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.'

It is wonderful to realize that you can put this Light and Life in your everyday actions and in your deeds and you will become a living factor in the lives of them that you come in contact with. That is what this is all about. It is so fascinating, as I say, the whole world has gone after it. It is the Life Magnet of the world. It is drawing men from all the ends of the earth, from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, from all parts of the world.

The more MY opponents and MY so-called enemies, as they may be called, the more they knock, the more they boost this Truth. For every knock is a boost and thoughts are things, and actions that we perform, as conveying in the way of conveying thoughts to others concerning another, are as chickens, they come back to roost, if they ever leave home.

Therefore, I said this Life that we were speaking about has been transmuted to mankind, and every one of you has a right to the Tree of Life, for of all of His fullness, have all we received, grace for grace. Not part of us, but every one has received grace for grace and all of his fullness Remember that! Just think of it! Not part of His fullness, but think about the privilege that we have! Everyone has a right to bring forth the CHRIST to fruition in his life and manifest HIM to the world. It is Wonderful! And not only that, but everyone has a right to claim their birthright. Everyone has a right to claim their Sonship degree, for it is written,

'Of all of His fullness have all we received, grace for grace.'

Think about it! Not as an heir and joint heir with CHRIST, but it is just as if though you individually were the only begotten of the FATHER. Don't you see the mystery? Each and every one has a right to know that he or she has the privilege to act and be and think just as if though he or she were the only begotten of the FATHER, full of grace and of truth, for 'As many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the sons of GOD, even to them that believed on His name.' It is Wonderful!

It is apparently strange to the human mind that such claims I express in actions, but that is the privilege of every one of you, to express the same. Think about it! It is the privilege of every one of you to express the same in deeds and in actions, expressing the Life of CHRIST and all of His fullness



Claim Your Birthright, Full Of Grace and Truth

Suppose I would re-quote that Scripture for your reconsideration.

'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory ,the 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.'

Now when you beheld the Glory of GOD as the only begotten of the FATHER, as the only heir full of grace and of truth, it did not stop there, but the great significance of it for our consideration is that

'Of all of His fullness have all we received grace for grace.'

We beheld HIM, and beheld the Glory as of the only begotten of the FATHER, full of grace and of truth. And beholding His Glory, as of the only begotten of the FATHER, full of grace and of truth, of all of His fullness have all we received. To us, He was the only begotten of the FATHER, and of all that, have all we received the same as if we are the only begotten of the FATHER. And therefore, each one of you has the right, if you will, to claim your birthright, full of grace and truth, and be an inheritor of your FATHER's Kingdom here and now, and

'Your FATHER is rich in houses and lands, HE holdeth the wealth of the world in HIS hands.'

Why need anyone fear that knows these truths? You are as though you are the only heir. That is why they see that I act as I do. I act as though I AM the only heir, and that is the privilege of every child of GOD to do that, for you are the only begotten of the FATHER, full of grace and of truth, and of all of HIS fullness, have all we received, grace for grace. Now isn't it Wonderful! Take these thoughts in, Dear Ones, and I believe that it will be of some consolation to you in your so-called trials and tribulations and even so-called depressions. If You Visualize Abundance, You Give Up All Chaotic Conditions

Now in closing I would like to say, I somewhat turned from MY point of view concerning this song we sang. We sang the song about limitless blessings. We began to enumerate them from millions to billions , and from billions to trillions, and from trillions to quadrillions, and from quadrillions to quintillions, and from quintillions to sextillions, and from sextillions to septicillions, and from septillions to octillions, and from octillions to duodecillions and from duodecillions to decillions, and from decillions to decillions times decillions; and I stressed that point concerning the fifty-eight quadrillion miles away from the Twin Plasket stars to say to you that although it was only fifty-eight quadrillion miles from the Twin Plasket stars to the earth, when they were discovered, and it would have taken ten thousand years for light rays to descend from these stars to the earth, and that was, humanly speaking, a large number, ten thousand years or fifty- eight quadrillion miles, yet that is nothing to compare with the distance of some of the more far distant stars, and not only that, it is nothing to compare with the limitless blessings that are in storehouse for the children of men. As I say, they are multiplied by as many more.

********************





(Sung by FATHER Personally)



Take No Thought for Yourself

Take no thought for yourself,
Take no thought for yourself,
Take no thought for yourself,
What you're going to eat,
What you're going to drink, or
What you're going to wear.


If You Visualize Abundance, You Give Up All Chaotic Conditions

The blessings that I have received and the blessings that we have received, we know that a thousand thousands is one million and a thousand millions it takes to make a billion, and a thousand billions it takes to make a trillion, and a thousand trillions it takes to make a quadrillion. Then remember, these stars were only fifty-eight quadrillion miles away from the earth at that time, and it would have taken ten thousand years for light to descend from them or to ascend to them. Then it takes a thousand quadrillions to make a quintillion, and a thousand quintillions to make a sextillion, and a thousand sextillions to make a septillion, and a thousand septillions to make an octillion, and a thousand octillions to make a duodecillion, and a thousand duodecillions to make a decillion. Then I say they are multiplied by as many more. Then how can you count your blessings?

I bring these thoughts before your mental eye, that you may consider the limitless blessings that are in storehouse for you, for they are limitless and if you visualize abundance, you will tend to produce abundance in your life and in your affairs, for that which we visualize we tend to materialize and bring into actuality in our lives. So it is indeed Wonderful! We therefore give up all sorrow, misery or any other chaotic condition, and we can and will produce such as we gaze upon, visualizing that vividly.

So I say to everyone, let us as the child of GOD visualize the perfect picture and refuse to visualize the negative, refuse to visualize the imperfect, for the perfect is the only real expression of GOD. GOD created the heavens and the earth and all things that in them are, and HE said that it was good and very good. And when we begin to visualize the imperfect and the negative condition, we create in our world a chaotic condition when there should be a harmonious condition and the expression of the Love of the Kingdom of GOD here and now, for there is no other to come.

I stress that point of view, Dear Ones, concerning the distance from those stars, not because that in itself has any significance save to convey to you the thought that the Heaven is not up there, and that if it were far above all of those planets, it would take you millions of years to get there. But we are privileged to know that, as the Apostle puts it on one occasion, we can

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

Even the prophet of old declared through the Spirit, as one that spoke in the Name of GOD, and said

'Am I not a GOD at hand . . . and not a GOD afar off?'

I have come to bring to your conscious realization, the Omnipotence, Omniscience and Omni-Presence of GOD and to convince mankind that GOD is Ever Present with them and within them and there is no other to call upon. And because I see that, and believe that, and visualize that, it has been declared by five million that I have materialized that and brought it into actuality in this present day, this twentieth century.

Now we will universalize it and all men will see and know that GOD is in the midst of thee and that GOD is a GOD at hand and not a GOD afar off. Isn't it Wonderful? You all can see that it is Wonderful! I AM sure that you can, for it is so plain that the wayfaring man, even though he may have been fooled, yet he has no occasion to err. It is Wonderful!



CHRIST Expresses HIMSELF In Many Different Degrees

In introducing Counselor Thomas to Mrs. Mayo and others, FATHER said: I found Mr. Thomas to be the expression of the CHRIST in the degree of a counselor. There are many different expressions of the CHRIST in mankind. You see the CHRIST expressing HIMSELF in many different degrees, but it is a wonderful thing when CHRIST condescends to express HIMSELF through you, as one having authority, that is, legally, as being counselor, a judge, etc.

We often repeat in our churches,

'I believe in GOD, the FATHER ALMIGHTY, Maker of heaven and earth; and in HIS only begotten Son: who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate . . . and descended into h - -l and the third day arose, and is sitting on the right hand of GOD; and from that day he judges the quick and the dead.'

We recognize the Judge, not as judges many, but as the only true Judge, judging the quick and the dead. It is Wonderful! That is what we all enjoy, see, when we get to that place in consciousness where we can physically, as well as mentally and spiritually, rely on the Infinite One knowing that HE condescends to judge through the hearts and minds of men.

I also find that, as it is written,

'Let not the rich man glory in his riches, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the wise man glory in his wisdom: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth GOD.'

It is a privilege for us to know that it is GOD that executeth righteousness and judgment in the earth, and when we attune ourselves to this great judgment of righteousness, judgment and truth, we will be in perfect harmony with this great Life, and this great Love will be reflected through us and even manifested to the world.

I see Counselor Thomas, not only as a counselor from the human legal standpoint of view, but I see the wonderful Counselor expressing HIMSELF in him. It is Wonderful! Yet, we all should do the same. There has been quite a little talk of ME and MY activities. Some say one thing and say another. Some say, I suppose, that I AM GOD, and some say that I AM the d-v-l. And I allow them to say what they will, but I do say, that what I AM and have been, you also can be if you will attune yourself to the CHRIST Consciousness, for CHRIST was the sample and the example for the world. As I often say, we may be the duplicate, but we may not be the Duplicator. The Duplicator is the sample, is the example, and it will duplicate, it will make many duplicates, but it will not be the Duplicator. So hold the Picture and copy after the Life of CHRIST and produce the same Life in our daily expression and activities that was brought into expression by Jesus whilst He walked the shores of Galilee.

We are rejoicing to see you all and to meet you all face to face, and all those that find faith in GOD, for from faith to faith, our great Work goes on. We have had a wonderful talk tonight. It is Wonderful!



Structure Of the Peace Mission Movement

In response to a question, When they ask YOU as to YOUR ability to carry on this Work, what do YOU tell them? FATHER said:

Well, of course, that has been the question, but maybe it is not the question today, because humanity, at least a great portion of humanity has come to the conscious realization that it is something more than mortal to command, so therefore, I do not get many questions on that line. However, in the past years I used to often be questioned as to whence cometh the finances to carry on the Work and so on like that, but that seems to be a thing of the past. They are coming to the conscious realization that GOD is all that we have. This light of Truth is lighting every man that cometh into the world of MY understanding. He lightest every man that cometh into the world. He may not light those that come into the world of the mortal version of the human mind, but He lightest every one that cometh into the world of the spiritual interpretation and understanding of GOD. So they are being enlightened and they are being lighted up, for the writer said,

'Arise, and shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of GOD has risen upon us.''

In response to the question, What is the name or title of YOUR Church or Organization? FATHER said:

I have no church. I have no church! The truth of MY organization is the Kingdom of GOD, not from an organizational standpoint of view, but from a spiritual standpoint of view, it is the Kingdom of GOD.

The following question was asked: Do YOU have disciples or apostles or men to especially assist YOU in YOUR great Work? FATHER replied:

Well there are those that are supposedly inspired to carry the Message, many of them feel that they are inspired to carry the Message, and they move according to their own volunteer volition, being governed by their highest intuition. They are usually successful in their endeavors.

Question: Where are YOUR headquarters?

FATHER: In New York. It is known as New York but in reality it is in the CHRIST Consciousness.



The Kingdom Of GOD is No Geographical Place

Question: But don't YOU have some house or place of meeting out in Sayville?

FATHER: Well, yes, I did and still have a home out in Sayville, Long Island, and that was, humanly speaking, the headquarters, but with the right understanding and concept of the significance of this Truth I would not term any place or country, or house, geographically to be the Kingdom of GOD. I know that it is a state of consciousness, a state of the mind, and yet it is expressed or brought into manifestation, the same as it is here tonight. It happened to be tonight that Dr. Mayo's home would be the expression of the headquarters, for he has drawn ME, or in other words, drawn others and MYSELF here, and that is what caused it to be the reflection as though it was the headquarters. But I have striven to get mankind to see and know that the true Principle of life is to visualize the Impersonal Life and the Immaterial Life and not the material side. The material side is but the outer expression of the condition of the mind within.

That is why I say and have so often said, that

'the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the Source of all Supply, and will satisfy every good desire.'

And again I have so often said in reference to the outer expression of the condition of the mind within, where there are thousands may come to ME in Person and there are thousands and millions and billions and trillions, as we have seen here tonight, of blessings being bestowed upon ME both materially and spiritually, yet I stress the point of view that this is but a sketch of a reflection of a percent of a percent of a percent of the outer expression of the condition of the mind within. It is the out picturing of a sketch of a reflection of a percent of a percent of a percent of the limitless blessings that I have in store for the souls of the children of men.

Therefore, the material or outer expression, or visible manifestation of things is but what may be termed as the materialization of not even a percent of what in reality is. And that is what fills ME with so much enthusiasm, to realize that. When we realize that the very Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is in reality the Source of all Supply, it is wonderful, for I have tried it and it has been well proven.



CHRIST Was In You Before You Said That HE Is Risen In Your Soul

Question: Well, through what writer or writers of the Bible do YOU get the articles appearing in the Metaphysical News?

Answer: I stress living from the Life and Teaching of CHRIST as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. That is MY version and point of view. I stress the four gospels especially as though being an Evangelical student and as being in an Evangelical country. And as there are thousands and millions of people claiming that Jesus is the CHRIST, and the way and the only true Way, then I hold the Life and the Teachings of CHRIST as the Ideal that was brought into expression through the person of Jesus, nineteen hundred years ago, declaring to mankind generally, wheresoever it was and wheresoever you are, that will visualize the identical CHRIST that was in Jesus and was brought into fruition in His Life, that you also will be able to materialize the thing that you gaze upon.

You can materialize that seed idea of the CHRIST that has been implanted in your soul from the beginning of your life, whether you were conscious of it or not. When you were born into the world, yea, even before you were born, this same CHRIST that was called Jesus, was implanted in the soil of your soul as well as in the souls of all men. CHRIST was in the body called Jesus. CHRIST was also in Nicodemus and Peter. CHRIST was in James, but as in the case of thousands of others, these had not stilled their conscious mentality from activities of the mortal version of the human mind, to allow the CHRIST to rise.

To verify this, I call to mind testimonies, for instance, when I heard them say and sing in the churches and in their prayers, 'I know that CHRIST is risen, for He is risen in my soul.' He was there anyway, but when you got converted, why, you may have a thought then that He came down from Heaven some place. But I came to let you know that He was in you, but He only rose up and spoke in you, and you declared that your soul was saved, that you were born again, and that you were walking in the newness of life. He did not have to come from some place, He was in you; to verify the statement in this quotation,

'He was in the world and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.'

Do you not see the great significance of relaxing your conscious mentality and brining your body into subjection to the CHRIST Consciousness, in other words, letting this mind be in you that was also in CHRIST JESUS, and walking in the newness of life?



 

The Mortal Version Prohibits the CHRIST From Rising

In speaking to the staff of the publication in Washington that had just been taken over by HIM, FATHER said:

There are thousands of men and women that are devout, and the CHRIST is trying to rise, but HE has been held down in the grave of materialism and mortality through that stone of prejudice. Many times, the CHRIST would express Himself and would have been brought to fruition in the lives of thousands of people, had it not been for some limited mental degree, some mortal version of the human mind that prohibited the CHRIST from rising to fruition and from being mad manifest to the world. For this cause it was necessary, it was essential for the CHRIST Consciousness to come, not confined, not necessarily to save a person or persons, but the Principle that has brought this great Light to mankind, it is the dawn of day. It has been rising and expanding and coming forth. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! We see that the Light is bright, and all can shine for the Glory of GOD has risen upon us. It is Wonderful!



CHRIST Can Be Expressed Only Where HE Is Not Limited

You see, when JESUS CHRIST first began to unfold Himself as CHRIST to the world, He was roused with a zeal and a courage and a determination to carry the Message, or at least, as far as He could in His universe, but being in the human version of the mortal life at that time, Jesus Himself had a tendency to say,

'Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.'

That is one's first intuition, to go to their own, until they come to that place in consciousness where they will realize that they have no individual 'own,' but they are the 'own' of the universe.

The first step in every CHRIST movement, when CHRIST rises in one, that first intuition or tendency through that mortal version of that mind, is to go to your own, go tell your brothers. Go tell my relatives, my kin, go tell my nationality, and go tell my friends, don't you see. That is the inclination from the mortal version of the human mind. It is the CHRIST rising there, but it comes out through the type that will express individual love, and the individual family, race, or color, or people. But when that mortal version of the human mind has been turned out, don't you see, why then you can see the temples of GOD where GOD and the holy Angels worship in Spirit and in Truth, irrespective of races, creeds, colors, denominations or anything of that kind. But in Heaven alone, no sin is found, and there is no weeping there. There is no division, for where there is division, there is strife. All are made one, for CHRIST prayed in the seventeenth chapter of St. John,

'I pray that they all may be one, as we are one.'

One of the writers said,

'Let there be no division among you.'

Therefore CHRIST in the person of Jesus came, not to save Himself, but the desire and the first inclination was to go to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. That was the first motive.

'He came to His Own, and his own received him not,'

and it was good, so that He could tell the Disciples to

'Go ye into all the world . . . and teach every language, every tongue and every people.'

But firstly, He was impressed to go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. To go unto His own, that was the mortal tendency, as it is in all bodies that CHRIST rises in, as a rule, until they break the shell of mortal limitation, the mortal version of the human mind. When they pick their way out, and come out as a little chick out of the shell, they are no more in the limitations, and they go out universally, preaching this great Message of Peace and Love.

'Go spread the tidings 'round, wherever man is found,'

and tell them that the LORD has come.

So that is why the CHRIST in reality can only be expressed in the universal state of consciousness, be manifested as the CHRIST only where He is not limited or where He has no bounds or barriers, where He is not confined, where He universalizes Himself and comes to this great atonement, this great at- on-at-one-at-one-mended with the universe. It is Wonderful! All of them had to come to an end that were subject or limited to races, or nationalities, or creeds, for as is with the United States, bound on the north by the Dominion of Canada, and on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean, man has been bound on every side and therefore they limited man by the traditions of the elders and the teachings of men. And in the human, or man version of life or understanding, man has a limitation.
