The Mystery of Self ** The Mystery of Death --- FATHER DIVINE





Our Father's Message at the Banquet Table, 20 West 115th Street, N.Y.C.,
Tuesday, January 26th, 1937 A.D.F.D.,Time: !:15 P.M.


One of the most illustrious Messages ever heard or listened to, by man, was given by the Lord who giveth Wisdom, and out of His Mouth cometh Knowledge and Understanding. Therefore, let the multitudes of the isles, and the inhabitants of the land rejoice that the Savior of man has returned to the earth, to change the shame of man to the glory of GOD;that they might no longer be destroyed for the lack of knowledge; for lo, the Lord our GOD is a GOD of Knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed.

FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE at Macon Avenue, Sayville, L.I., N.Y.

FATHER DIVINE points out the fact herein, that the only way to eradicate self completely is by the absolute annihilation of the mortal mind; this is obtained only through by " the disposing of self, the removal of self and lastly the burial of self;" then, and only then, can one hope to have the victory over all adversaries and over all adversities.

FATHER DIVINE speaks as follows:



Peace Everyone:

It is a pleasant thing—in other words, a pleasant atmosphere to be in a place where all are calling on the Name of ("GOD!" shouted the multitude of Angels) and by calling on such a Name, it causes the realness of such results as we have today. I was thinking just then, as you are calling on the Body of GD, GOD will Bodily respond to your call, and because of the response you will get a visible result to your request. Now the reverse is equally true; if you continue to call on the negative, the antagonistic, the unreal and the untrue, and stress it vividly enough to conceive the concept of it, it will become to be a living reality to you. That is the mystery.

Just think of living in the Consciousness of GOD'S Presence, until nothing real will be in existence in your consideration,saving that which is according to the Fundamental! We are dispelling darkness of doubts and fears, of adverse and undesirable conditions, by the recognition and the realization of the Positive, the Real being established among us. You are calling it into expression—the Positive—by a constant declaration of the recognition of GOD'S Real Presence, but if you continue to declare the realness of the presence of the negative, the reaction of such a declaration will become to be a living reality, and be made manifest to those with whom you come in contact; but how marvelous it is to realize as you sit and stand, you are in a n atmosphere of the Conscious Conviction and the Realization of GOD'S Presence rather than man.


The Very Name of GOD

The very Name of GOD, and the atmosphere of such a recognition, will dispel all undesirable conditions, and will eradicate the chaos in your system, and cause you to be physically well, healthy and happy,because you have a hearty and healthy mind. Whatsoever you ailments or complaints may be or have been, when you concentrate on ME, the Cleanser of your sins, through such a concentration and the reaction of it,you will find the results harmonious.

I have long since said, and declare once again, "Make your mental and spiritual contact harmoniously, and everything will be adjusted harmoniously; you will have Peace and Joy and Happiness beyond degrees" ... Just think of the health the millions have received by having a healthy mind and by concentrating on the positive instead of the negative and causing the positive to become to be a reality in your conscious mentality, by you establishing it in your words, your deeds and actions. By refusing to observe the negative, by stressing the positive vividly, you tend to materialize it, and bring it into outer expression perfectly, until the positive will move out all negative expressions,and there will be nothing else in existence in your consciousness, saving that which is of the Positive.


Foretaste of Glory Divine

Oh, it is a privilege to be in the Presence of GOD! It is a privilege to observe the truth concerning HIS Word. It is a privilege to realize the very Name of GOD will charm your fears, and will bid your sorrows cease. If you have tasted of HIS infinite Love by being in this atmosphere, it is a foretaste of Glory Divine. It is proving what your Heirship would bring you, if you become to be, and if you are real heirs of GOD; born of HIS Spirit and washed in HIS Blood.

The mystery of the composition is fulfilled in your experience. When you are going through trials and tribulations, recall the composition for your consideration: "Blessed assurance." Even the early Christian dispensation — in the early days of the Christian dispensation, whichever,

"Blessed assurance Jesus is mine,
Oh, what a foretaste of Glory Divine.
Heir of Salvation, purchased of GOD,
Born of HIS Spirit and washed in HIS Blood."

Now what does the Blood typify, there? What is it a symbol of? "Born of HIS Spirit and cleansed in HIS Life." The Blood typify's the Life — in other words, it is a symbol of the Life of Christ. When HE shed His Blood in the parable, HE was shedding His Life for others, see the mystery; therefore when it is interpreted, you can see plainly, the Blood is the symbol of the Life that was given so freely, that all others might be made partakers and become to be inheritors of His Blessings as Heirs and Joint-Heirs with the Christ. Then I say,it is a privilege to be in the Presence of GOD.


GOD'S Presence the Fundamental

With or without a Bodily Form, GOD is a living reality in your hearts and in your minds. Why is it? It is because your minds have been impregnated with the conscious conviction and the realization of GOD'S Actual Presence. When the outward expression of the appearance of GOD is no longer seen among you all from time to time, you are still conscious of GOD'S Actual Presence, as a living reality, for you have conceived the idea concerning the mystery, and by this consciousness of GOD'S Presence, everything else is dispelled unlike it. Anything that is unlike the consciousness of GOD'S Presence will be dispelled by such a recognition. Because you recognize GOD'S Presence as an Ever-Abiding Essence and Substance, yea, the Fundamental, the Principle, with or without a person, you will bring such a recognition into an expression that will always give you victory over all undesirable conditions.
