FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE Serving Holy Communion at TheDivine Lorraine Hotel, Philadelphia, PA.



The gathering of the people was in the thousands, from all parts of the world for this great occasion, the Dedication and Consecration of the Woodmont Estate, the Mount of the House of the LORD.

After a most historical and eventful day, we were just about on our last tour at the beautiful Divine Lorraine Hotel. We partook of a most glorious Communion Banquet in the beautiful Crystal Dining Room and were entertained by many songs sung by FATHER DIVINE'S International Rosebud Choir.

After the singing of "We are real true Americans", FATHER arouse and gave this beautiful soul-stirring Message to the delight of all.

Thank YOU, blessed FATHER and MOTHER!

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




PEACE EVERYONE! Both Ladies and Gentlemen and Angels of the Kingdom, We are happy to be here tonight to further emphasize the fact that we are Real True Americans and Americans one hundred percent. Aren't you glad?

That little composition is well worth considering, long to be remembered and shall not be forgotten, for True Americanism, Democracy, Christianity, Brotherhood and Judaism are synonymous. By this, we are happy to say, we are not representing races, creeds and colors; we are representing the kind of people GOD made! For it is written of you, all of you collectively,

'Out of One Blood GOD created (or formed) all nations of men for to dwell upon the face of the whole earth.'

By this, we shall bring you back into that atonement by the Unity of Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and of Purpose, and shall bring an abolition, yea, a dispellation of all divisibility among us. We shall live in peaceful and quiet resting places from shore to shore and from land to land, as I have broken that line of demarcation; I shall universalize it throughout all countries and lands and all peoples shall eventually realize you are the kind of people GOD made.

Being the kind of people GOD made, you are living and expressing these qualities of humanity as afore said and when you express your real citizenry of true democracy and shall have put forth into expression the very thought of what I AM telling you, you will no longer going around representing races, creeds and colors. Aren't you glad?

I have often spoken to a good many of the officials, senators and other officials, if I would have to be elected as an official to be for some race, creed or color, to bring about more warfare and bloodshed as Hitler did, I would not be it if they paid ME one hundred thousand dollars a year!

We are representing the people GOD made and we are not asking anyone to help us. I AM bringing about that for which you all have prayed; your fathers and your mothers prayed for what I AM now enjoying. Aren't you glad?

And when William Penn and others came to this country seeking religious liberty, as so to speak, they came with the same inner urge as we; but I have come to fulfill his wishes and bring it about one hundred percent from A to Z.

It is a wonderful place to live, is it not? Commonly known as the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, the Cradle of Democracy, and now I have made it the Country Seat of the World (Aren't you glad?) where the children of men will say,

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

for the Law shall go from somewhere. Aren't you glad? Read it for yourselves! And they shall be taught and shall live by this Law -- where there will be no more uprisings among the people, no more race riots, no more lynching, for the Blood of JESUS CHRIST paid it all.

We are assembled here as a matter of course, but at this particular instance, as this day was set apart for the Dedication and for the Consecration of the Mount of the House of the Lord. Believe ME or believe ME not; we shall express it and nations shall see it; for truly, this is the Country and this is the City in which the Declaration of Independence was drafted and was signed. Aren't you glad?

And this is the City and this is the Country in which the Constitution and its Amendments were drafted. Aren't you glad? Now, we shall live our Constitution continually and we shall continue to enact the Bill of Rights. We shall establish Democracy from shore to shore for we shall be universally the personification of both it and them. Aren't you glad? Then I say, we are Real True Americans and Americans one hundred percent. And it is no need for none of the subversive elements of the different nations to try to present anything to ME, for I AM representing Democracy just as I have told you. No need for them to try to present anything to ME to create antagonism or to cause subversive elements to rise in these My audiences. I say, "Nay!"

I shall establish Democracy one hundred percent and I shall cause it to be known that Americanism, Christianity, Judaism, Brotherhood and Democracy are synonymous and with these good qualities developed and brought to fruition in humanity, we shall have a Righteous Government and there will be no more divisibility among us.

Just look over this vast audience. Just see how orderly they are. Aren't you glad? Such a place as the Madison Square Garden in New York City and any of those large halls there in which we have held meetings, we need no policemen to keep order; the SPIRIT of My Presence will keep order! Aren't you glad? Everything will be all right too. Nothing to hurt nor harm in all of My Holy Mountains. Is it not written something like that in the Bible? Is it not written that

'There is a highway thrown up in the wilderness and none but the redeemed shall walk therein.?'

I AM redeeming you now!

Such a privilege to live in such a recognition and to build upon such a foundation as this one. A foundation that is incorruptible and undefiled. A foundation that fadeth not away. More and more the unfoldment of this real, true Life such as I have emphasized -- more and more is taking place in humanity all over this wide extended plane and when you are born out of that Adamic state of consciousness into the CHRIST Consciousness, you become to be New Creatures; you become to be Soberly, Righteously and Godly.

Not a true follower of Mine is going around soliciting, begging or stealing. Not a true follower of Mine will buy anything on credit, neither on the installment plan; they pay cash as they go and owe no man. Now isn't this a wonderful life to live?

And when we sing this original song, "My Country 'Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty", we can sing it with glee, for it is a land of Liberty and truly the Liberty Bell still hangs over our heads as a protection and as a symbol of expression of True Democracy and Brotherhood.

How marvelous it is to live in such a recognition and to build upon such a foundation as this one where you can live the abundant life, and if there is a question, I would like to say to our visiting guests and friends, those who do not know, with us this a matter of course every day. Come and see. I mean from an economic point of view, it is a matter of course; and the Scripture is fulfilled,

'Ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened.'

We are not talking about living the life to die and go to heaven somewhere, but we are and actually have brought heaven into the consciousness of millions and I have established their going in the land of the living, and I AM causing them to find that for which you all as Christians prayed, "Let thy kingdom come and thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

When you shall have enjoyed the Spirit and the Life of CHRIST and brought both it and them to fruition and become to be the personification of it in keeping with the declaration of Jesus,

'A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump . . .'

when this is fulfilled, you will have in your life and in yourself and in your business and in your affairs, all success and all prosperity, all wealth, all honor, all dominion and all authority; for it is given to HIM Whom you say I AM! ("GOD Almighty!" shouted the throng.)

Once again, I wish to call your attention to one of our simplest place cards to be stressed and reiterated in your memory, but as a healing balm for your body and your soul. That little place card portrays MOTHER and MYSELF; Our Pictures are depicted on this little place card, International Peace, and as you will find in the pages of The New Day where I have reiterated it over and over again:

'International Peace in the Air, on Land and on the Sea!'

If you take cognizance of this and live it and express it, a greater picture of ME can be reproduced in you, in your likeness. Aren't you glad? Then, if you take such in consciousness -- not necessarily the post card, but take it in consciousness, the symbol and the meaning of it: the Purity of My Spotless Virgin Bride, the Honesty of My Spotless Virgin Bride -- you may vision and reproduce that which you have visioned in your lives.

By copying after this fashion I have shown you for at least ten or twelve years since residing here in the City of Brotherly Love, take these thoughts to consideration, as one copying after something they desire to reproduce; for I did say,

'If you take cognizance of My Message, a Greater Picture of ME can be reproduced in you, in your likeness";

for you will be the mold to reproduce the CHRIST, and CHRIST in your likeness will be walking in the land. A practical course in Psychology, I say! By visualizing the Perfect Picture, you tend to materialize it for it is written,

'That which you vividly visualize, you tend to materialize.'

So then, my fellow citizens, hearers and friends, do not feel that I desire to take anything from you, but to the extreme reverse, I desire to give you the Key, the Key that CHRIST gave to Simon:

'Simon, I give you the Keys to the Kingdom and that which thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and that which thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.'

We are happy to say I have given millions the Key. For truly the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the KEY, for it is the source of all supply and it will satisfy every good desire! >

Now take these thoughts along with you and think much on it, sympathetically, conscientiously, sincerely, democratically, unselfishly and evangelically; and that KEY, when you think on it sincerely and realize GOD is Present with you, that KEY will unlock every barred and shut door even as it unlocked it for Simon!

I know it sounds somewhat fanatical and a little bit radical to hear such assertions; but look about yourselves and see if it is not true that the SOURCE of all Supply has truly supplied the Abundance of the Fullness of the Consciousness of Good without worrying, without struggling, without stealing, without borrowing and without any acts of dishonesty! Oh, what a privilege, what a privilege, what a privilege! I need not say more; I have solved the problems of millions. Why not let ME solve it and solve them for you?

I give you the Keys of the Kingdom -- to be conscious of GOD'S Presence and know HE is everywhere! I AM not telling you to be just conscious of My Presence and think I AM just here and nowhere else; but to be conscious of GOD'S Presence, the very Spirit of the Consciousness of the PRESENCE of GOD is truly the Source of all Supply and it can and it will, as it does and as it has been, satisfy every good desire. I have everything I desire. Aren't you glad?

JUST THINK ON IT, and as you THINK on ME vividly, conscientiously and sincerely -- as true as GOD materialized the earth when it was void and without form when GOD said,

'Let dry land appear,'

things that are necessary for your sustenance, for your comfort and for your convenience, for your pleasure, to solve all of your family problems and everything else and bring peace and harmony, the consciousness of GOD'S Presence will do it! I thank you, I thank you, I thank you!
