"From This Place (U.S.A.) Shall Go Forth the Law to All Nations, Languages, Tongues and People.

Shortly after many visiting guests and friends availed themselves of the opportunity to speak, our LORD and Savior arose and delivered this beautiful and uplifting Sermon.

Numbered among the visitors were several ministers of the Methodist Faith. They enjoyed themselves thoroughly as FATHER'S Guests at the Holy Communion Table, and not only so, but as expressed by them individually in their remarks which are recorded elsewhere, they discovered in this Glorious Work and Mission the essence of the reality of their own religion.

Truly can it be said as recorded in the Scripture,

'And they shall know that I AM the LORD their GOD!" (Ezekiel 28:26)


For the Universal Works of the LORD GOD Almighty show forth the Glory of His Majesty, Dominion and Authority!

Therefore, read this wonderful Sermon and realize that some day it shall be even as the song herein quoted says, for GOD is in our midst in His Holy Body to fulfill it! The song says:

'As it is right here, some day it shall be all over this wide extended plane,
none shall lack in GOD'S Abundance; we all shall be happy and free;
we all shall see our GOD Personified; we all shall be in Him unified;
for as it is right here, some day it shall be all over this wide extended plane!'

Thank YOU, Almighty GOD!

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

 

 

 

PEACE EVERYONE! I do not wish to bore you and I will not hold you very much longer since My Work will be going on until eight o'clock this morning. Nevertheless, I would just like to say, I delight in having ministers of the Gospel and those of the Household of Faith, because they can get a slight sketch of this Fellowship of which we represent! I would like to say to our -- I will say it -- our fellow ministers and brethren, this is the kind of world in which we shall live; that is, if we live; the kind of world in which we shall live!

By the Unity of the Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and of Purpose we shall live in Unison together, and all over this wide extended plane some day it shall be just as it is right here, where all problems shall have been solved and all matters shall have been adjusted satisfactorily; where GOD has been made a Living Reality and no longer a supposition! Aren't you glad! ("So glad!" responded the congregation.)

GOD is a Panacea for all of your ills, for all of your ailments, and GOD is here stay! That is why you can see so much LOVE exemplified, materialized and personified! We, the People, are the Personification of that Love of which was spoken of by Moses when he said GOD said, "Thou shalt love the LORD thy GOD with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength. This is the first and the great Commandment, and the second is like unto it; thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself!"

Coming through the many different ages and many different dispensations I heard one say down in Christendom,

'Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come, it was Grace that brought me safe thus far and Grace will lead me home!'

We are happy to say that Grace came through forty-two different generations, B.J., better known as B.C., paving out the way and trying to produce what we see and hear! Something that was Invisible, Something that was Intangible, Something that was merely a Supposition at one time -- but it is no longer a Vision, no longer a Dream, no longer a Revelation, but GOD is Real, REAL, REAL!

 

The Reality of Church Teaching

And this Fellowship -- I know the Christian Churches, the Methodist and Baptist and other Churches -- have reflected and manifested the sketches, but we are trying to produce and bring into actuality the REALITY of what they have sketched and reflected! Aren't you glad! ("Truly glad, GOD Almighty!" responded the enthusiastic congregation.)

When you have the Love Feast, when you have the LORD'S Supper, think of ME! -- and know within yourself you are sowing the seeds that someday shall develop and shall be brought to fruition and shall be manifested in an outward expression, made a Living Reality and no longer a Supposition!

This Love Feast has been materialized, My Fellow Citizens, Brethren and Friends; it has been reproduced; though it has been manifested through Christendom -- reflected from time to time -- the kind of Love Feast of which this is the offspring, (aren't you glad!) and the Communion of which this is the Fruition! Therefore, we have Communion some SIX or SEVEN TIMES DAILY and we have the Fellowship of Love Feasts daily. Aren't you glad! ("So glad!" came the joyful response.) The material food may not be considered, and, on the other hand, it may be considered; but the great significance of it is that We, the People, have produced and brought to Fruition the Spirit of Brotherhood, Christianity, Democracy, Americanism and Judaism as synonymous. Now, I AM bringing all of the peoples of the earth together! Aren't you glad! ("So glad, GOD Almighty!" exclaimed the joyful congregation.)

I declared by composition as an inspiration transmitted:

'Eventually the symbol of the Flag of the Free
shall be seen in every land,
Americanism, Christianity, Democracy!'


I have declared, Americanism, Christianity, Brotherhood, Democracy and Judaism -- when these expressions are lived and brought to Fruition by the spirit and the nature of them, they are synonymous!"

That is what it is all about!

 

No More Misery

Oh, what a wonderful world in which to live! Copy after the Fashion I have shown you on the Mount of this High Light of Understanding! I will assure you when this is lived and put into action in business, profession, labor and trade and in all of your daily activities, there will be no more warfare and no more bloodshed and no more misery, disappointment and failures!

I have not done anything yet to what I will do! We shall have it just as it is right here all over this wide extended plane!

I thought of how marvelous it was when the research worker mentioned tonight down on the platform, on the stage, our Righteous Government Platform. You can see that since 1936 when we had our International Righteous Government Convention in New York City, and having it at three large halls at the same time, and having people from all parts of the world -- and I released My Righteous Government Platform at that time -- little did you think that those planks in that Platform would be actually fulfilled -- but they are being fulfilled now!

As I declared many years prior to that time,

'As it is with ME and with Mine so shall it be in the furthest parts of the South and all parts where there is prejudice and division and strife, for GOD shall change the hearts and lives and the minds of the children of men and make them New Creatures in this land!'

We shall live in Peaceful and Quiet Resting Places! There shall be no more misery, disappointment and failure; no more race riots, no more uprisings among the nation; but right here in this Country -- the Country GOD considered and established here in the City of Brotherly Love, the Cradle of Democracy for us all -- from this place shall go forth the Law to All Nations, Languages, Tongues and People -- not because of a race, a creed or color; not because of any individual; but because of the Presence of GOD Supernatural, as the Redeemer and the Savior of All Humanity!

 

Blessed Assurance

That is the beauty part of it -- it Transcends all of the Limited Barriers of men! It Transcends all Obstructions and all Versions, all Ideas and all Opinions and it Establishes your Going in the Land of the Living! And by THIS you can live in Blessed Assurance and you can feel and know definitely naught can hurt you not harm you!

I will not say more at this instant as I have long since declared,

'I will preach CHRIST in Words but more so in Deeds and in Actions, and I will put My Spirit in the people and cause them to walk in My Statutes!'


Not a True Follower will smoke a cigarette because that is My Spirit that Stops them from doing it!

Many things I could say but time will not permit at the instant. If you, as our visiting guests and friends, are here next Tuesday night, it may be possible that I may bring out something that you will be pleased to hear! I thank you.
