How truly marvelous it is to realize that GOD ALMIGHTY is here on earth in our midst, even as HE was predestined to come, and is establishing HIS Righteous Reign, yea HIS Righteous Domain, not only in the hearts and minds of the children of men but in the tangibilated outward expression of HIS Glorious Work and Mission the Universe over!

In this magnificent sermon delivered by FATHER on this occasion, many are the thoughts for consideration, which, with scriptural quotations, more than prove the fulfillment of GOD'S Work and Mission here on earth as it is accomplished by leaps and bounds!

Read, therefore, HIS masterful Words of Spirit and Life, and you too will be lifted to higher heights and deeper depths in GOD'S wonderful wisdom, knowledge and understanding concerning this Righteous Government being universally established!

THANK YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD!

(The foregoing statements are those of the transcriber, after which FATHER speaks as follows:)

 

 

 

PEACE, EVERYONE:

Here we all are again! There I sit and stand! In the unity of the Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and Purpose I AM unifying the children of men all over this wide extended plane! I AM bringing about that long-sought-for Universal FATHERHOOD of GOD and the Universal Brotherhood of man so that the children of men might be able to live in peaceful and quiet resting places with victory over all adverse and undesirable conditions! ('So glad, LORD!' declared the entire congregation.)

As I said of a very recent date, CHRIST will save you to the uttermost if you will allow Him to! GOD will save you from sickness and disease! GOD will save you from disappointment and failure! GOD will save you from accidents and all adverse and undesirable conditions and will establish your going in the land of the living!

That is why we are rejoicing as we are rejoicing in the actuated words of expression, for truly GOD has saved this people! I do not mean that GOD will save that which is termed your soul alone, but GOD is saving your bodies from misery and disappointment and failure! GOD is saving you from lacks and wants and limitations! GOD is saving you from adverse and undesirable conditions! GOD is saving you from division and strife, (Aren't you glad!) And establishing your going in this present life! ('So glad, GOD Almighty!' declared the joyful assembly.)

Therefore, I say, here you all are and there I AM! There I sit and here you stand! In the Unity of the Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and of Purpose I AM unifying the children of men all over this wide extended plane! In Europe, Africa and Asia, yea, in the furthest parts of the East, in the far East, I AM lifting up a standard of Brotherhood and Democracy and of Christianity, and AM establishing that which you have sought true Christianity and Americanism as Democracy to be lifted in this Country but it shall be in other Countries as well as this one!

We shall have a Righteous Government and all of the Nations of the earth shall flow into it for this Righteous Government of which I AM speaking is the Mount of the House of the LORD that I AM lifting! Aren't you glad! ('Oh, so glad, LORD!' came the joyous exclamation.) And they are saying here and now, here and there,

'Let us go up to the Mount of the House of the LORD that HE might teach us of HIS ways!'

They are coming from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and they are coming from the South American Countries to the City of Brotherly Love not only coming here mentally and spiritually but they are coming here physically and personally! For truly, this Country was predestined to be the Mount of the House of GOD, where the children of men shall live in peaceful and quiet resting places, where no man can make them afraid! ('So true!' verified the entire congregation.) This conviction will solve all of your problems; will adjust all matters satisfactorily for you, and will give you victory over adverse contagions, and will cause you to be susceptive to the contagion that will produce Democracy, Brotherhood and Christianity and Americanism and Judaism as synonymous! ('So glad!' declared the entire assembly.)

This is a wonderful life to live when you realize it can be and it is being reproduced and personified in our lives and in our daily actions and transactions! ('So true!' replied the congregation enthusiastically.)

Therefore, lift up your heads, if there be any whose head hangs down, and

'Fret not yourselves because of the workers of iniquity for they shall be cut off!'

Aren't you glad! ('Truly glad, LORD!' said the rejoicing multitude.)

Truly might have I said in the Sonship Degree:

'Upon this Rock I shall build MY Church and the very gates of (you know what shall not prevail against it!'

Then I declared by composition through one down in Christendom,

'The other place' may rage and vent her spite but GOD will save HIS Heart's Delight!'

GOD'S Heart's Delight are those who have chosen GOD, and they are GOD'S chosen people also! If you choose GOD, GOD will choose you! Therefore, your conviction and consciousness of GOD'S Actual Presence automatically adjusts matters satisfactorily and solves your problems for you! For

'The Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is truly the Source of all Supply!'

Can you not see the material outward expression of that source that satisfies your desire? ('Yes, GOD Almighty!' declared the assembly unanimously.)

Live in this recognition and all you must needs do is to live it and express it, be conscious of it, and automatically you will be expressing it to others and others will get it, for it is contagious!

It is an often rehearsed quotation in the Scripture, yea the Gospel Epistle of the Apostle,

'Evil communications corrupt good morals, ill qualities are catching as well as diseases, and a man is known by his company keepers,' in other words, 'by the company he keeps!'

It is a privilege to realize the positive is equally true!

The reason these here under the sound of MY voice and those of MY adherents the universe over, do not indulge in intoxicating liquors and the use of profanity, obscenity and vulgarity, is because they keep company with the Perfection of Modesty and Virtue! Can you not see the mystery? ('Yes, LORD!' came the declaration.) This Modesty, this Virtue and this Holiness, they are as contagious and as operative and as expressive as that of the negative!

I shall not be discouraged until I shall have universally contagionized the Universe with the contagion of Brotherhood, Democracy, Virtue, Holiness and Virginity the universe over. For it is written of ME,

'HE shall purify the sons of Levi and shall purge them as silver and as gold are purged!'

Can you not see I AM purging the children of men from vice and crime and from sin and debauchery of every kind? ('Yes, so true, GOD Almighty!' came the unanimous exclamation.)

A true follower of MINE would not smoke a cigarette! A true follower of MINE would not indulge in the opposite sex, even if they are married to them! That is what I AM talking about! Aren't you glad! ('Oh, so glad, GOD Almighty!' came the instant response.) Truly might have one declared,

'HE will change your vile bodies in fashion like unto HIS Glorious Body!'

This is a marvelous change taking place in the land, where the children of men are being purged from the without and also within purging your vocabularies and purging your subconscious mind so that you will not even so much as have obscene and vulgar dreams! Aren't you glad! ('Yes, so glad, Lord!' came the gladsome cry.) That is what I will do for you! If you will allow ME to, I will purge your subconsciousness so you will not even have vulgar and obscene dreams! I will purge your vocabularies so you will not have profanity, vulgarity and blasphemy in them! Can you not see the mystery? ('Yes, GOD Almighty!' came the immediate response. I AM purging you now! ('So glad, LORD!' came the joyous response.)

Just vision that which you behold in MY Spotless Virgin BRIDE! (FATHER turns to our Beloved MOTHER sitting in all chastity at HIS Side, and there is thunderous applause and cheering.) For one write declared,

'As many as received HIM, to them gave HE power to become the Sons of GOD!'

He also declared when the Word was made Flesh,

'And it dwelt among us,' he said, 'and we beheld HIS Glory as that of the only Begotten of the FATHER , full of Grace and of Truth!'

I cannot stress those thoughts too vividly, for that is the mystery of the purging of your minds and of your spirit and of your bodies! As you beheld HIS Glory as that of the only begotten of the FATHER, full of Grace and Truth,

'And of all of HIS Fullness have all we,' said he, 'received, Grace for Grace!'

It is a privilege! It is a privilege! ('So true, FATHER Dear!' came the reply from the adoring congregation.)

I need not say more at the instance, for I arose not to speak in Person. I would rather hear from MY fellow citizens and fellow I might say fraternity brethren and sisters and representatives of the Church in the ecclesiastical world; those who know GOD from the different angles of expression GOD in the midst of you is mighty to save! Aren't you glad! ('so glad!' came the instant reply.)

Therefore, it is a privilege to be able to comprehend with all saints!

If any of our fellow citizens and visiting friends desire to speak they are welcome to do so by moving volitionally even as we do if they care to. If you do not care to move as we do and desire to speak, give us your names, addresses and professions. We will introduce you according to custom! I thank you.
