FATHER DIVINE'S Words From The Notebook of John Lamb

Installment 69



I AM Playing On the Hearts of Humanity

 

The following was FATHER's Sermon:

SONG:

'I will bless you, I will bless you,
I will bless you all the way,
I will bless you, I will bless you,
I will bless you all the way.'

At this point there was a great demonstration lasting for several minutes. FATHER continued:

 

It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! That is just the way GOD's children are, just like the last speaker, for GOD's children are somewhat like GOD is. You sang, 'My FATHER is rich in houses and lands, HE holds the wealth of the world in HIS hands!' You say HE has rubies and diamonds. Isn't it Wonderful! Then why go away with a long face saying you are GOD's child ? Prove it to ME! Prove it to ME by having happiness, by having wealth and having all success and all prosperity and everything else that is good.

Again I say,

'MY peace I give unto you, my peace I leave with you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be troubles, neither let them be afraid.'

It is Wonderful! That is an evidence! It is Wonderful! All success and all prosperity, all peace, all joy and all happiness and all life and all love, that is ME.

Now if you desire to play on the organ of the Kingdom of GOD, why then, strike those notes. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! Listen! If you desire to play with MY Heart like I AM playing with humanity's heart, why strike those notes. You know it is just so wonderful, because I know that I have the key to your hearts.

It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! You know I AM playing with the hearts of men. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! I AM playing with and I AM playing on all of the hearts of humanity. You sang away back there years ago, you said, "Tune my heart to sing GOD's praise.' Aren't your hearts tuned to sing GOD's praise? You can say it to all of the world that no such music and no such songs has humanity ever heard as you sing now. Your hearts have been tuned to sing GOD's praise, and your hearts are the organs of the Kingdom of GOD, and I AM playing on the organ, too. It is Wonderful! I say I AM playing with the hearts of humanity, and if you let ME play with it right, why, it will keep you joyful, it will keep you loving, it will keep you healthy and it will keep you happy. It will keep you successful and prosperous, it will keep you filled with all good things. But if you rebel against it, why, it will give you heart trouble. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful!

'As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of GOD'

on earth. And then they will not let their hearts be troubled, for they will believe in GOD. You believe also in ME, because you said it was another, didn't you? (Chorus of 'No, no, no,') It is Wonderful! But anyway, when you believe in GOD you believe in ME, don't you?

Therefore, I will be with you. I will be with you all along the way.

'Fear not, little flock; it is your FATHER'S good pleasure to give you the kingdom.'

Every one of GOD'S children is all right. They don't have to worry any more. I say,

'Let not your heart be troubled,'

Trouble and sorrow flee away, for CHRIST, your Savior came to stay and turn your darkness into bright noonday, and all sorrow have passed away. Therefore I say again I will be with you, I will guide you and I will protect you all along the way. It is Wonderful!



If You Get Out of the Flesh, Mortality Has No Power Over You

You know where there is wonderful music in the air. It is Wonderful! I heard you sing a little while ago, 'It sounds like music in the air,' they said the Name of your FATHER was in the air, said it was everywhere. And there was a thought came forth, quite a comparison, whether GOD or the d-v-l, I brought to you the conscious realization of the materialization of GOD, and that has set the whole world on fire. It is Wonderful! You know you have heard folks talk about GOD, and you have heard them say that they were GOD. You have heard folks say more about being GOD than you hear ME say, but that didn't stir up the nation, did it? What do they care about men and women going around saying they are GOD? I don't have to say anything about it. It is Wonderful! I don't have to say, but it is Wonderful! I will stir up the President. I said this mighty Name will stir up the Present. I don't even have to say it. It is Wonderful!

You know it is something like what a judge in a conversation said to ME the other day in Orange, New Jersey, 'What do they mean by calling YOU GOD? Are they directing that thought to YOU?[ I said, 'Ask them.' But why didn't they say that about folks when they were going around saying they were GOD? Because they knew there was nothing to it. They know that GOD would take them out of their sins, and now they know that GOD lives and I have stirred them up. They know it! They know that GOD has come to reign and man's time is out. And that is what is the matter. They don't care anything about how much men and women go around and say they are GOD, and drink liquor and don't get you out of self so you can express GOD. What do they care about that?

They know that they have power over you so long as you stay in the flesh. But something in them knows that after you get out of the flesh, they will not have any power over you. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! I came to break the tie that binds. I came to break it! I came to break it! I came to set the prisoner free and free indeed. That is what I came for. 'He that the Son sets free is free indeed,' and someone knows that. He knows that if you get out of the flesh, the mortal law will have no more power over you. He knows that! Knows that he will keep you in bondage as long as you stay in the flesh.



This Truth Will Set You Free If You Get Out Of the Flesh

Some of you talking about being in slavery sixty or seventy years ago! You are as much in slavery today as you were then sixty or seventy years ago, and you will never be free from slavery until you get out of the flesh. Some of you talking about 'MY name is James Pope, or Hilda Pope's, and if you have been emancipated, that old name should have been emancipated. I say that old names should have been emancipated. That old name was only your daddy's master's name. It never was your name. It is the name that through emancipation, you claimed that you were free, and yet you are only free by the name being free and you are bound by that old name. I came to let you know what has got to go through Congress, I AM talking about. There is something has got to go through Congress about your name. I AM talking about. There is something has got to go through Congress about your name. I AM talking about your name!. It is Wonderful! And then don't want to claim to be a slave, want to say you are free from slavery! It is Wonderful! That is your ancestor's master's name.

And the mortal mind doesn't care what you say about your being GOD all you want to, as long as it keeps you in the flesh and don't change you from nature to grace. It is Wonderful!

But I came that you might be changed from nature to grace, and from the flesh to the Spirit, and free you from the law of sin and death,

'For the law of the Spirit of life in CHRIST JESUS will make you free from the law of sin and death.'

That is what it will do. It is Wonderful! I came bringing that law, the Law of the Life in CHRIST JESUS, for he that the Son sets free is free indeed. So they don't care anything about folks going around and talking about you are GOD, because if you are GOD and then staying in the flesh, they know that they have you bound by the law. He that is under the law is under the curse.

You see the mortal mind knows within itself that this Truth will set you free if you get out of the flesh.

'For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of GOD, they are the sons of GOD.'

And I say these because even if it were possible that this BODY could die, what would I care about it? I AM just as operative without the BODY as I AM with the BODY. And this Truth, I say this Truth shall go forth abundantly, conquering and to conquer, and righteousness shall cover the earth even as the waters the mighty deep, that is called the sea. It is Wonderful!

Therefore, tell the world it is Wonderful! I want to tell you, you are just like GOD. GOD's children don't have to go around begging. GOD declared through the mouth of one,

'I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.'

You don't have to ask anybody for a thing. You don't even have to ask them for a job! It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! You don't have to ask them for a thing. Your

'FATHER is rich in houses and lands, and holdeth the wealth of the world in his hand, rubies and diamonds, silver and gold,'

and everything else that is good. Wonderful!



You Won't Have Room To Handle All Your Happiness

When the speaker spoke, the last speaker that spoke, when she spoke, it moved ME because that was just like GOD's children. You all can prove to ME you are GOD's children by getting in the ray of MY glow.

You can prove to ME that you are GOD's children by getting in the ray of MY glow, and by your heart being all a-glow with MY ray. Your heart can be all a-glow, you can be blessed until you will have no place for blessings any more. The Word plainly tells you,

'Try me . . . and see if I will not open to you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.'

You won't have room to put all your clothes. You won't have room to put all your wisdom and knowledge and understanding. You won't have room to handle all your joy and your happiness. You won't have a heart big enough to hold all of your love. You won't have a pocket big enough to hold all of your money. 'Your FATHER is rich in houses and lands.'

I AM not talking about lip service, we are talking about real service, for you cannot fool even the people any more since I have come. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! I came and I turned the light on, and you have no cloak for your sins. Now if you are not blessed, turn in on the blessedness of GOD, and you will not have to go around like a vagabond. You will not have to go around begging anymore. It is Wonderful!

Even away back there in the last quotation of the Scripture that I just quoted, why, it plainly tells you that was even before Jesus came, it said,

'Try me now herewith, saith the LORD, and see if I will not open to you the windows of heaven, and pour you out such a blessing, there shall not be room to receive it.'

And it said,

'First seek ye the kingdom of GOD, and HIS righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.'

It is Wonderful! Do you not see the abundance of wonderful things that are added unto ME? It is Wonderful!



I Have That Something That Every Man Wants

Now I did not seek a following. I did not seek a following! I did not seek a church, not even a mission to preach in. I did not seek co-workers, friends and acquaintances and students, I didn't seek them. I didn't seek them. This mighty Love has drawn you unto ME. And then you came from all the ends of the earth, for I have all joy, I have all peace, I have all health and I have all happiness. I have all success and I have all prosperity, I have all life and I have all love, and I have everything else that is good. Now then, where are you going? It is Wonderful! Seek the Kingdom of GOD, seek first the Kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness. You find men going around trying to seek a big name, to be called a preacher and all such as that. Even now, like when we have big meetings at the bigger place, I go to the small places, as I did last week out in Orange, (New Jersey).

I went up there where there weren't so many. I don't have to seek it. Everything that is good will come to ME. It is Wonderful!

Look at you! You come to ME. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! This Love and Truth is so fascinating, as I often say, the whole world has gone after it, and in going after it, you got after ME, because you can't get it without getting ME. You can't get the soda out of the biscuit without getting the biscuit.

' The little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.'

They will come to ME from all parts of the world. I have that something that every man wants.



I Have Turned You All Around

As I say to you, I have often thought of that, that they don't go around and question people, I mean folks right here in New York City and New York State and all around, folks getting up and preaching about their being GOD, openly, publicly. What do they care about that? They know that nobody believes it. They know that they don't believe it themselves. They know that they don't believe it themselves because they think they have a mother, a father, sisters and brothers, and all manner of relatives, and if they think that, then they know that they are not GOD. It is Wonderful! But they believe that there are about five million think that GOD is in a Body. And they believe and they know if they continue to believe that, that mortality will not reign any more. They know that you will stop shooting craps. They know that you will stop gambling of any kind. They know that you will stop running a bad house of any kind. They know that you will stop carrying guns, they know that you will stop fighting, and that you will stop drinking liquor, and they know that you will stop violating the law, and they know that they will not have anything to do. It is Wonderful!

For anyone that believes like you all say you do, why you don't want to drink any more liquor, do you? And you are not going to sell any more, are you? And you are not going to carry a gun any more, are you? You don't need anything of that kind. I AM not telling you not to do it, but I AM just asking you, you are not going to do it any more, are you? It is Wonderful! You are not going to make any more liquor are you? And you are not going to drink up any at your neighbor's house, are you? And you are not going to be running around with the opposite sex any more, are you? You are going to live a pure and a spotless life, aren't you? I don't tell you to do that, and I don't tell you not to do that, because I preach CHRIST more so now in deeds and in actions, and I will put MY Spirit in you and cause you to walk in MY Statutes.

You don't want to be running around. You don't want to do those things that you know were wrong any more. I don't have to tell you not to do it. 'Behold, we put bits in horses mouths, that they might obey us; and we turn the whole body around.' I have turned you all around, haven't I ? And we have a glorious church without spot or wrinkle, a holy church, a church I means, not to say that I AM a holy church in the name of Holiness, and then tell you to go and get the law to hide behind to commit adultery.. You can take the law and hide behind it, and commit the same crime as you would without the law. And sin, in the sight of GOD is just as much sin behind the law as it is without the law. Tell the world that I said that! And I say it again!

'The wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.'

It is Wonderful!



Don't Abuse Your Energy Or the Holy Spirit and You Will Stay Young

Now I will not continue to detain you. (Chorus of 'Yes, yes, yes.') It is Wonderful! You know you will get young you know, when you stay around ME. You know there was a gentleman in the meeting last night in Newark who said he was eighty-two years old. And he said he couldn't stop talking because while he was talking he said that from somewhere he kept getting younger. And he said that he felt like leaping and jumping. And there was a gentleman in the meeting here in Bayside (Long Island) today, and he said he was eighty-three, and he said he felt like leaping and jumping.

It is written,

'If there is a messenger among you . . . one among a thousand. . . my soul hath seen a ransom,'

my soul hath seen redemption.

'His flesh shall be fresher than a child's' and he shall return to the days of his youth.'

You will not get old in this Truth. If you live this life you will not get old. Let your life energy go coursing through your system in its automatic way, in its natural way, and you will stay youthful, you will never get old.

Now, of course, I don't have to say anything about MYSELF, but I can say about Mr. Joseph, (Great demonstration) It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! You see he can jump like a young man, because he lives the Life. All of that energy goes through his system and renews him, renews his tissue, renews his bones and makes baby tissues and baby cells. That is why he is so young, that is why he gets around so well.

I don't care anything about this Body, but I AM talking about Mr. Joseph. It is Wonderful! Live the Life. It is Wonderful!

Now Mr. Joseph may relax sometimes about two or three hours at night when he gets through with the meetings, and gets through with the places where we have dinner and everything, and when he gets to bed it may be about three o'clock and he may get up about five or six. That doesn't make him old though, you see, he doesn't look old, does he? If he was abusing his energy and abusing the Holy Spirit that has overshadowed him, it would not be so.

As I said the other day, when you prayed the Lord's Prayer, you said,

'Hallowed be they name. They kingdom come and thy will be done in earth.'

You said keep Thy nature holy and let Thy will be done and Thy kingdom come in earth as it is in Heaven. Now, if you don't keep GOD's nature holy, why, you will get old. It is Wonderful! Aren't you glad? Aren't you glad I taught you to keep young, to keep your health, to keep your wealth and to keep your happiness?



Shun Youthful Lusts!

The mortal mind, with your energy, it had you bewitched all the time, and they were killing you, thinking that they were doing GOD service. They didn't know any better. They didn't know any better!. The Bible said the time will come when they will kill you and think that they are doing GOD service. They will be going around killing you and thinking they will be doing GOD service. It is Wonderful! Not keeping GOD's nature holy in you! It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful!

'Hallowed be thy name,'

keep Thy nature holy.

'Hallowed be thy name.'

keep Thy nature holy.

'Thy kingdom come, and they will be done in earth.'

Let all of that be done in us, keep GOD's nature holy in us and not utilized it to appease the mortal concept of your human tendencies. Do not abuse yourself like that!

The Bible says,

'Shun youthful lust.'

Read it for yourselves. Shun it! Shun it! And some of you old men and old women are not shunning youthful lusts, but you are running after it. Now that didn't just say to the old men to do it, it was talking to everyone. Shun! Shun it! Shun youthful lusts! It is Wonderful! Having escaped the corruption of the world through lust, you should be partakers of the Divine Nature, and you will be no more unfruitful in wisdom, in knowledge, or in understanding.

Now does Mr. Joseph look like he is unfruitful in wisdom, in knowledge, or in understanding? He talks just like he is intelligent, doesn't he? He may not know his alphabet so far as you know, but he talks intelligently.

He is no more unfruitful in wisdom, in knowledge and understanding of our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.



God Does Everything For You

Now this is shaking the world because I came just in time to save you from degradation, didn't I ? Now you are going to stick by ME, aren't you? It is Wonderful! You are going to stand by it, aren't you? You are willing for your vile bodies to be changed, aren't you? that you might inherit eternal life for spirit, soul and body.

'For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.'

It is Wonderful! Upon this Foundation you can rejoice and you can be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven.

Take these thoughts home with you, Dear Ones. Those that think they are sick, those that lack anything, remember that the LORD is your Shepherd and you shall not want. Remember that now, that the LORD is your Shepherd, you shall not want. Then remember this, that that the LORD giveth you this day and your daily bread. Don't think once more that you will not have bread for tomorrow. GOD is with you, GOD is your FATHER and you never had another. GOD is your husband and you never had another. GOD is your mother and you never had another. GOD is your wife and you never had another. CHRIST is ALL and in all.

Now, in conclusion, I would like to say as the speaker said today at Bayside, remember how wonderfully GOD has taken care of you. This sister said how her husband had been dead according to what she described, or had heretofore said, between twenty and thirty years or somewhere along there, but yet GOD had taken care of her all the time, even before she was this Person or this Appearance. It is Wonderful! She said that GOD is her husband. GOD is All. Remember that GOD is your All and in all. Remember that GOD is rich and all you need, with or without a Body. With or without the body called your wife, your husband, your mother, your sister, your brother, or your father, with or without it, as this child said here today, GOD was the only One that ever did anything for her.

Now GOD is the only One that ever wiped your mouth when you were eating something, when you were a little child. GOD is the only One that ever did it. It is Wonderful! And all the glory belongs to GOD.

Nobody has ever done anything for you but GOD. GOD did it even though HE did it through somebody. GOD used an agency, used a body to do it through, but it was GOD that was taking care of you; therefore, give all the glory and all the honor to GOD, and GOD will be with you, and if everything visible fails you, you won't care. I have told you not to bother about MY visible Body, so don't bother about anybody else's visible body. I AM just as operative without the Body as I AM with the Body. It is Wonderful!"
