The following is the composition sung just before FATHER arose to speak:

I am satisfied, I am satisfied,
I am satisfied with FATHER!
But the question comes to me
When I think how HE set us free,
Is my FATHER satisfied with me?

(FATHER speaks as follows:)

PEACE, EVERYONE!  That number just sung is a question within itself and yet it is a declaration for you to take cognizance of what you are saying in making such a declaration.   And when you shall have made up your mind to be satisfied with ME, still I say, do not sing it unless you mean it.  But as you sing it and mean it conscientiously and sincerely, you will feel it and you will realize it in your physical bodily forms. You are satisfied with GOD.

If you look over this vast audience and over all of the audiences wheresoever I Personally preside, and stop and consider and simply realize you are actually satisfied, such a conscious recognition and realization with the consciousness of GOD'S Actual Presence will adjust matters satisfactorily.

While serving daily the unlimited supply of the food for the sustenance of your bodies and of the food for the sustenance of your mind and spirit to satisfy every desire, and beholding the abundance of it so superbly demonstrated, I stopped and considered, as I consider, who could not or would not be satisfied with the abundance of the food that GOD supplies sufficient to satisfy any and every good desire?

The material food is an abstract expression of a sketch and a reflection of the mental and spiritual conception of a percent of a fraction of a grain of a percent of what GOD is doing mentally and spiritually in supplying the food for the sustenance of your soul.

 

Just a Fraction of the Reality

As I have often said, the outward reflection and the outward manifestation is but a sketch and a reflection of a percent of a fraction of a grain of a sketch of a reflection of a fraction of a grain of that which is conceived within.  You can see the reflection of it outwardly demonstrated.   A little fraction of the reality is telling you something.  Just look at it!  Now are you satisfied? The food for the sustenance of your body, the food that is supplied, can you tell ME conscientiously and sincerely, are you satisfied?

I thought as I sat and considered the mystery, if there is another can do any better, I say, bring him hither.  For the sustenance of your bodies, for the comfort and the convenience, for the blessings, as humane workers and for the personnel of this people, you do not believe it could be better.  If there is anyone can bring anything better, tell them I said come hither!   It is Wonderful ! Wonderful ! Wonderful!   It is something to praise GOD for!

Up at the City Hall this morning, some—at least one of the officials was stressfully speaking of how can you get butter, because they could hardly get it, telling about the number of pounds of butter that had been released to the City of Philadelphia, and thousands down there, as so to speak, in four abreast, to get a pound of butter.   Here it is this day the Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing:

"Take no thought for what you shall eat, today for tomorrow."

Those under this Jurisdiction do not have to take thoughts.  All they have to do is to fall in line and shape and fashion and form themselves in conformity of the Spirit to fit in, and the Abundance of the Fullness of the Consciousness of Good, no space is vacant of the fullness thereof.   All of these blessings are prepared for them.

 

"Praise God from 'Whom- All Blessings Flow"

Then you should praise GOD, and as one said of a very recent date, you should praise GOD and thank GOD for your daily bread. While there were millions starving both far and near, here it has been in the extreme emergency, GOD for you supplied and prepared a full and a plenty and to spare.  Then you should "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow."  You should "Praise God, all ye creatures here below," for the blessings so bountifully supplied to satisfy every heart's desire.  Aren't you glad!  This is not a supposition!

Through all of the depressions, panics and famines, through all of the oppositions, trials and tribulations, through all of the depressions and the prospect of inflation, GOD has in all of HIS Abundance supplied you with the Abundance of the Fullness of the Consciousness of Good, where your soul, your body and your mind can rest in blessed assurance.  It is Wonderful!

GOD deals in the affairs of men, and from every angle expressible in all of their activities GOD is expressing superbly.  Then I say you should praise GOD!  You should be satisfied!  But as I say, yea as I said, I will still say, don't say it unless you mean it.  Do not sing it unless you mean it.  If you do not believe that the supply here in satisfiable, sufficient to satisfy and is justifiable, HE is sufficient to justify the situation.   Do not say it and do not sing it unless you mean it.

I hear your voices speaking as you look in this direction, but John caught the glimpse of the mystery and explained it more explicitly and said:

"Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world."


He beheld the Lamb, but you heard a Voice and you saw no man.  You did not see a man!   You all — the majority of you — have heard Mother say in person, for fifty years she saw no man.  Now aren't you glad!  The same Spirit is speaking today!  Now don't sing it unless you mean it and don't say it unless you mean it.  Aren't you glad!

 

A Never-ending Stream of Blessings


I looked and beheld; I saw in the abundance of the fullness all blessings bountifully flow.  They flow! They flow! They flow apparently, until they can flow no more.  It seems like a never ending stream of blessings flowing so freely; but I heard you say down in Christendom:

"Come, thou Fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy praise; Streams of mercy never ceasing ..."

Can you not see, they are never ceasing?  Can you not see, the Fount of every blessing has tuned your heart to sing GOD's praise?  What a privilege!  What a privilege!  What a privilege!  What a privilege!  Streams of Mercy that will never cease.  David caught the glimpse of the mystery and he caught it in his Psalmic prediction:

"The LORD is my shepherd and I shall not want, . . . he leadeth me beside the still waters.   He restoreth my soul , . . Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me a11 the days of my life."

I heard you say by the composition, "Streams of Mercy never ceasing."  They are flowing so freely.  And because you believe, you receive it.  Aren't you glad!  Do you love ME now?  I have heard science declare, this is the Atomic Age in which we now live.  I will Atomicly awaken you with this atomic energy awakened within you.   It is so sweet!  I thank you!  I thank you!  I thank you!
