"Memorize the Documents of the Rosebuds, Lily-Buds and Crusaders;
and the Sermon on the Mount." ---FATHER DIVINE

Our FATHER'S Sermon at the Holy Communion Table of the Circle Mission Church, Home and Training School, Inc.,
764-772 S. Broad Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Thursday Evening and Friday Morning February 2-3, 1956 A.D.F.D., Time 4:25 A.M.



The event of the Cabinet Bible Class was one of great significance because of the profound Truths brought forth by FATHER at this time! Truly, the Sermon comes at a time when a great change is taking place in mankind! Yes, this is now the time of the fulfillment of a prediction long ago made, not only a prediction but a prophecy! For GOD HIMSELF declared through the mouth of Jeremiah:

'Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with Judah:
'Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
'But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel: after those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inwards parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
'And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, know the LORD; for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more!" (Jeremiah 31: 31-34)

And even as FATHER said then, HE is doing now, putting the Creeds of the Peace Mission Movement within the hearts and minds of all His true followers who will do according to His Will and commit them to memory and live and express them in their every daily deed and action, as well as the quotations in the Sermon on the Mount!

Read, therefore, this marvelous Sermon given at this time by FATHER, as well as the profound Office Talk given after going upstairs to His Office, which delves more deeply into the same subject. Truly, these are Words of Spirit and Life, and offer Salvation and Redemption freely to every living soul who will but reach out to attain it!

Almighty GOD, we truly thank Thee!

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

PEACE EVERYONE! Here we all are again; there I sit and stand! In the Unity of the Spirit, of Mind, of Aim and of Purpose I AM unifying the children of men together with all of us! While listening to the different testimonies and while observing the significance of your travel, your journey through the Scripture, but most specifically and definitely to be considered is that of which has been so freely given, your Documents as being called the Creeds and your Endeavors and your Commandments, those were something deep to be considered and always to be remembered, the Rosebuds', the Crusaders' and the Lily-Buds' Creeds and Documents! If you will read them and live them and commit them to memory and put forth your spirit and your mind with a determination to be One with them, I will be there every time and give you the Victory over every difficulty! (Thunderous applaud rings out.)

These Commandments and the Discipline in keeping with the Sermon on the Mount are sufficient to solve your every problem and to adjust all matters satisfactorily for you!

What a privilege to live in such a recognition! And then to make it substantial, incorruptible and undefiled when I had called for you to read the Scriptures, all of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation; to commit to memory many of the important scriptures or quotations, as a Sample and as an Example for you I came! When you are conscious of GOD'S actual Presence, GOD will solve all your problems and will adjust all matters satisfactorily for you.

Those wonderful Documents of the Rosebud's, and most stressfully considered are the Documents and the Commandments and Endeavors of the Lily-Buds what you say and what you rehearsed and repeated when you live them and express them, you have the Victory! That is why I desired each of you to learn all of the Lily-Buds' Creeds and Documents and Commandments, and read and learn all of the Rosebuds' Creeds and Documents and Commandments and Endeavors, and the same also, to read the Crusaders' each of them to be read in stressful consideration, conscientiously and sincerely, until you can commit them to memory! They should be as your alphabet!

You did not nor do not forget your alphabet so easily. Then why commit to memory some Documents of your Redemption and yet forget it or cannot commit it to memory! ("So true!" came the sanction from the assembly.)

Oh, how glorious it will be, from now, henceforth, if each of you will keep the Commandments and Documents and Creeds, all of these for it takes all of them to give you the Victory over all sickness and diseases, sorrow, misery, disappointment and failure and if you will but do it, I will be with you and continue to give you the Victory, if you will live it and express it in deeds and in actions, in thoughts and in words, and let them become to be a part of you in all simplicity, by being conscientious and sincere; I will be with you now, henceforth and forever. (Thunderous applause resounds.)

The Commandments are kept by living the Documents and the Creeds and by loving the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength!

So take these thoughts to consideration, and if you think you cannot commit to memory every Document and every verse, or every quotation in the Sermon on the Mount, repeat it and stress it and study it sincerely, and commit it, and re-commit it, to memory and establish both it and them in your hearts and your minds and you will have the Victory, not only just now but all of the time! (Again thunderous applause rings out.) There are many things I could say, but words are inadequate. All of the words of the human language, not only of the English language but all of the words of the human language, they are inadequate to say, in so much as words, what we are endeavoring to do for others universally and for you!

My following in other countries have accepted of the Commandments and the Documents and the Creeds and the Endeavors of the Rosebuds, the Crusaders, the Lily-Buds and others, and they are studying these, those who do not know them and cannot or have not yet committed them to memory until all of My true followers will know the Documents verbatim and will be able to comprehend with all Saints! Aren't you glad? ("Yes, so glad, GOD Almighty!" came the joyous sanction.)

I need not tell you to do this, that nor the other, when you shall have imbibed the SPIRIT and the MEANING of the Teaching, and especially the Commandments and all of the Crusaders' and Lily-Buds' and Rosebuds' Documents and put them in your memory once and forever, to never be forgotten; for I did say even through Moses, you should write them upon the door or the table of your heart!

'I will place My Commandments upon your mind and I will write them upon the table of your hearts, and your sins and iniquities I will remember no longer!'

How marvelous it is to realize, all of these Documents of the Peace Mission Movement, when they are established in you effectively and professionally and stamped in your memory once and forever, you will not have an occasion to falter nor fear, for I will be with you and you will have the Victory over every difficulty, and will not be sickening and dying as many are doing that are not in My Spirit and Mind!

Now it's your privilege to live above limitations, live above adverse and undesirable conditions by committing to memory the word of GOD for the Word of GOD is the Spirit Personified and Conscientiously and Sincerely Realized! I thank you!
