that It Might be Used Constructively through the Advancement of Civilization and for the Betterment of People Generally — FATHER Divine

The high vibrations that prevailed on this 28th day of February, 1938, brought forth the following song, after which FATHER DIVINE spoke.

"Love! Love! Wonderful Love,
Love! Love! Wonderful Love,
It flows like a river, forever and ever
From FATHER DIVINE.


Peace! Peace! Wonderful Peace, etc.
Life! Life! Wonderful Life, etc.
Health! Health! Wonderful Health, etc.
Joy! Joy! Wonderful Joy, etc."

PEACE EVERYONE! Here you all are again, and there I AM. There I sit, and here you stand. I have arisen at this instance to say it is a privilege to realize with whatsoever your heart may desire, those things can be bountifully supplied.

I just wish to convey a thought concerning our present educational system and also concerning the ignorance of the people and the illiteracy of a good many of us. How marvelous it is to realize the Scripture is now fulfilled, both those Scriptures that were written in the prophetic age and the Scriptures, yea, the Gospel that were written since Christ Jesus came, and the revelationic prediction, yea, the prophecies that were made in the Revelation of John as he was on the Isle of Patmos.

These different Scriptures and different quotations, different revelations and Epistles and the the Bible are fulfilled as each and every one of you live according to the Teaching of Christ.

 

The Dumb Things to Confound the Wise

How marvelous it is then to observe great things being fulfilled, and to see how the most significant expression or consideration of life, it came through and by the most insignificant. That which is great, according to the versions of men, those things came through and by the most insignificant among them, for has it not been written,

"God takes the dumb things of the world to confound the wise, and the things that are not, to bring to nought the things that are."


For this cause we all together rejoice.

I thought again when the brother spoke of his educational aspect and his endeavor to advance by learning everything I might present to him in his educational endeavor, and according to his educational endeavor and in his educational career, how marvelous it is then to observe the mystery of great things coming through the most insignificant One.

Behold the Spirit as it comes forth revealing the mysteries of GOD all the way through the prophetic age down to this present time; GOD inspiring man with wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and drawing wisdom from the most illiterate and the most ignorant to make wise men on the material plane, who might be expressers of scientific truth that might be the light for this advanced Spiritual Civilization.

 

Making Many Rich

How marvelous it is then to observe such a mystery, for what said the Scripture concerning this mystery:
"He came as the poorest among men, yet making many rich."


The actuated words of MY expression in MY daily actions and dealings, I AM actually fulfilling that particular quotation, and as we speak concerning the "richest" from a financial point of view and other angles of expression of the wealth of humanity, we find these things are true, and you can see definitely I AM the Fulfiller among you. Not only so, but when you step back to the side of your information, being termed "your education," which you are seeking through and by the intellectual world of expression, you can see GOD through HIS condescension coming among men as the most illiterate among them, yet making millions superintelligent. Aren't you glad?

Upon this foundation if you will stand, if you will wait patiently, you and the whole universe at large will eventually see the salvation of your GOD.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shalt walk, and not faint."


Aren't you glad? GOD in the midst of them will be their refuge and will be their strength. Aren't you glad! That is what it is all about. That is why the nations of the earth are stirred because of MY Super-independence, yea, the independence I AM transmitting to you all. Aren't you glad? Those who have been dependent, those who have been limited, those who have been underprivileged, I will make you independent and super-independent by the transmission of the spirit of independence which I AM presenting to all humanity.

 

Lifting a Standard of Perfection

Then I say, He came as the least among men, but yet making many men great. Aren't you glad! To the great reverse of such an expression, GOD through HIS Condescension with HIS Love and HIS Mercy truly came, bringing to fruition and expression, transcending the extreme reverse, adverse and undesirable conditions, and lifting up a standard of perfection for the perfectors; a standard of perfection for the perfect, that they might be more perfectly expressed in their daily actions and in themselves as persons.

How marvelous it is then to know the Scripture is fulfilled as an abstract expression. I hope all of you will take MY experience and expressions for a sample and an example that you might copy after the fashion I have shown you, to lift you above every adverse and undesirable condition whatsoever has befallen you. If you are afflicted, if you are sickly, if you are a failure, the extreme reverse of each and all of these afore-named expressions I will give to you by the recognition of GOD's Actual Presence among you. For what said MY Message concerning the mystery yea, the composition, a motto for consideration:

I will preach Christ in words, but more so in deeds and in actions, and I will put MY Spirit in them and cause them to walk in MY statutes.

 

The Source of All 5upply

I have not requested you, especially, so much in person to do this, that, nor the other, but to the extreme reverse of such an assertion I have taught you the way of life, and I have shown you the way I AM living; therefore, I say again in answer more distinctly to the foregoing statement, according to MY original composition, another motto for consideration:

"The Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the Source of all supply, it can and it will, yea, it does satisfy every good desire."


Now aren't you glad! This motto in itself, if you take it for consideration and stress it vividly and sincerely believe it, you will find the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the Source and the supply, and can and will satisfy every good desire. Then I say, if you happen to be illiterate without human information, as being termed human education, from the Fount of GOD's Omniscience through MY Condescension, I will teach you wisdom.

If you have been downtrodden and limited and even underprivileged, I will lift you and exalt you if you will let ME. Then I say, the Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the Source and the supply. It can and it will satisfy every good desire. All you must needs do is to recognize GOD's Actual Presence. When you are conscious of HIS Presence, recognize it in the actuated words of your expression; express in actions and in deeds at HIS Personal absence just the same as you would in HIS Personal Presence when you can see HIM; then if you do, nought can harm you or can come to you, for GOD in HIS own majesty, mercy and compassion for you, will be your protection.

 

As Something that Could Not be Understood

This is the significance of the great independence of GOD. GOD through HIS Condescension transmits HIS independence to HIS children, that each and every one of them might declare their individual independence and express in actions as well as in words. How glorious it is then to realize GOD through HIS Condescension came among the children of men as the poorest among them, yet making millions rich by HIS Presence. Aren't you glad! This being something that could not be understood — "How can such a One bring about such riches and such wealth in the land?" It is because that Gem — that precious Gem — as a real gem of wealth and health and life and love — as the Magnetic Current of life for all — as the very Magnetism, will attract and draw such desirable things by HIS great force that is within it: the Holy Eternal Spirit.

Why is it then, there are those who are limited and they cannot prevent it? It is because they fail to observe and recognize the Presence of GOD to create an atmosphere such as I have created for you all. The conscious realization and the recognition of GOD's Presence creates an atmosphere; that atmosphere is a pleasant one. In such an atmosphere there is a spirit of courageousness, a spirit of persistence, a spirit of courage and a spirit of zeal. It takes away all of your doubts and all of your fears, and even takes away your sense of wants and cares.

 

No Shadow of Death in Christ Consciousness

Truly might have David said by inspiration as he spake concerning this mystery:

"The LORD is my shepherd, and I shall not want."


Aren't you glad? How can you want with such a recognition and with such a consideration as you are now considering? You are actually in GOD's Presence, for what said David concerning the mystery:

". .. for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me ... even though I walk through ..."


that which is termed — he could have said, but he did say according to the record:

"Even though I walk through the valley and the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil."

If you know GOD is with you, what is there for you to fear? If you know the Omnipotent, Omniscient One is on your side, then you have nothing to fear, for it has long since been declared and I re-declare the same — it may not be in your way, it may not be in some other one's way, but in some way or other, "The Lord will provide."

If I retrace MY thoughts back and call yours to the same, why I said it could have been said, "Even though I walk through" that which appears to be"the valley and the shadow of death;" that was what I was to stress — in other words, to convey a thought concerning the mystery. It was to convey the thought to you that you have no shadow of death in the Christ Consciousness, and there are no more valleys of death! Then I say, you need not say even that —"I walk through the valley and the shadow of death;" for there is a highway thrown up. It is a way in a way, and this is the way wherein you walk. You need not doubt nor fear, for I AM bringing into actuality the fulfilment of the Scripture. I AM fulfilling the Scripture socially, industriously, intellectually, yea, physically, and then I AM accomplishing these things legally as well as mentally and spiritually.

Our traffic system of today, and the State Highway Commission, they are planning to run highways from one part of the country to the other, where you will pass over the valleys, driving your automobile. You need no longer to drive through the valley and the shadow of death.

 

GOD's Omniscience to be Seen Among Unintelligent

GOD by inspiration through HIS prophets and seers was the Predictor. HE is also the Fulfiller as well as the Predictor. That is why I called HIM from the heavenly versions of men to the earth plane to do HIS business. It is HIS own business, and that is the purpose for which I came!

I AM transmitting the Spirit and the meanings of the predictions of the Scriptures to legality and to the world in which we are living, and with which we are connected. All of these different branches of our present "civilizational" expression of this world in which we are living — I mean, such as the commercial system, the labor system, the capitalistic system, I AM bringing both it and them into subjection; and those who are expressing mechanically and industrially on the material plane, materializing things, I AM with them. This is the purpose for which I came: to bring down wisdom, knowledge and understanding that men might use the wisdom of GOD constructively and do great construction work through the land and country; through the advancement of civilization and for the betterment of people generally. Aren't you glad?

For this cause we are rejoicing to say today, HE came as the most unintelligent among men, yet making the wisdom of GOD — GOD's Omniscience to be seen among them. HE came as the unskillful among men, yet making the children of men super-skillful and super-intelligent on the material plane, that they might be scientific discoverers and inventors of works and inventions that are for the advancement of GOD's Kingdom on the material plane. All of these things I have done and AM doing; but comparatively to what I have done or will do, whichever, I have not yet done a thing! Aren't you glad?

The Wisdom of GOD — GOD's Omniscience transcends all human intelligence. Through HIS Condescension I AM transmitting same, that there will still be millions and millions of inventions coming from the invisible realm to the material plane, for that which was invisible GOD materializes. GOD causes these things to be made visible by transmission, by the skill and the ability and by science and by invention, by such things as that which are termed to be the wisdom of men, their skill and their ability among them.

I will bring to the earth plane more and more understanding for the advancement of this Spiritual Civilization that mankind might reckon these spiritual things that have been surmised or imagined to have been on the spiritual plane alone, to be on the earth plane for the common good of mankind.

 

 

Imaginary Heaven Must Come to Earth Plane

How glorious it is then to live in such a recognition, to be able to be in GOD's Actual Presence where GOD is active on duty at home at all times, and no longer in the imaginary realm, the imaginary heaven of the religions. The imaginary heaven of the religions, as you have been taught by them, such a religion as the most of the religions, are impractical, unprofitable and, good-for-nothing, saving to fill you and your minds full of false delusions, imaginations and superstition.

GOD, through HIS Condescension, came to bring to your conscious consideration the significance of GOD's Actual Presence, and to bring your imaginary heaven to the earth plane. Such an imagination of heaven that has been, it is all right if it can descend; but if your imaginary heaven cannot descend and cannot be brought to the earth plane, it profiteth you nothing. Aren't you glad? But in the fulfilment of the Gospel, yea, even the prayer which you all have prayed, the imaginary heaven from the fondest imagination of the children of men must come to the earth plane. What said Jesus concerning this mystery in the prayer He was teaching:

"Pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name." —

which was to say, keep GOD's nature — GOD's Name holy.

 

Expressers of the Will of GOD

Name means nature. If you keep GOD's Name, GOD's Nature holy in your consideration, the Kingdom will come to you and the will will be done in you as it is done in HIM of whom you say I AM, and when this is accomplished in all mankind, there and then the Kingdom has truly come. Aren't you glad? And the Will in earth, is actually being done, for you are the actual expressers and the doers of the Will of GOD, when the Kingdom shall have come unto You all, for what said the Scripture concerning the mystery:

"Behold I create a new heaven and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." —


and again:

"The kingdom of God is within you." —


and again; even before Jesus came as a person representing GOD and the Kingdom of Heaven,

"Say ye to the righteous, ye shall eat of the fruit of your doing."

Therefore, the works of GOD that are done in the children of men will produce such fruit as will be meat for them; will supply them with whatsoever they need otherwise, and they will be satisfied. By this we are still rejoicing, for GOD through HIS Condescension coming as the most illiterate and ignorant among men, yet making many superintelligent.

 

Bible History Repeated

If there be a question as to the mystery of the words which I have spoken, I have declared and it can be verified by the school board: When I made a call, or in other words, a request for all of MY followers to go to school, over night there were not less than about three thousand turned out. That is to say, right here in New York City, not mentioning the other places throughout the universe; for that which I have spoken to you as persons, I have spoken the Word universally. Aren't you glad! Nearly three thousand turned out over night in the re-action and the re-fulfilment of the Scripture concerning the mystery, yea, the Epistle. At the day of Pentecost, when they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and after the Crucifixion and the Ascension of Jesus, three thousand were added to the church in one day.

Can you not see the fulfilment of the Scripture and the history of the Bible repeating itself, as I AM the repeater? Aren't you glad? Three thousand were added to the church in one day. Three thousand pupils turned out to school, according to MY request, in one day!

 

All Things Accomplished by Recognition, Concentration and Visualization

Then I say, I came as the most illiterate and as the most ignorant among men, after the manner of men, yet making many super-intelligent. Aren't you glad?

I came as the poorest among men, yet making many rich by MY Coming. I came as the weakest among men apparently, yet making many strong, robust and healthy. I came as the most diminutive among men, yet making many superintelligent, strong, robust and mighty. All of these things are accomplished by the recognition of GOD's Presence, by those of MY followers and others concentrating on what I AM telling them.

The thing you vividly visualize, I have often said, and I repeat the same, you tend to materialize. You tend to materialize that which you vividly visualize; hence, I have stressed GOD so vividly in your conscious consideration until you are obligated to visualize HIM. I have stressed victory, success and prosperity so vividly, you are obliged to visualize each and all of these expressions. I have placed them before your mental eye, and it is a matter of impossibility for you not to visualize them, for it is stressful and it is appealing; therefore, I AM impressing the masses with whatsoever I AM saying concerning the mystery.   I thank you.
