Then I say,
'No man cometh to the FATHER, except by me,'
says the Son of GOD. There was left in the hearts and the consciousness of the children of men that there was a probability of coming to the FATHER, but the only way that you can come to the FATHERSHIP Degree of spiritual understanding, or the FATHERSHIP Degree GOD, it is only through the Sonship Degree. There is no other way.
'No man cometh to the FATHER, except by me,'
and if you desire to come that way, and will make up your mind to live an Evangelical life, exactly according to the Life and the Teachings of CHRIST as recorded by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and let this mind be in you that was also in HIM, that will lead you to your GOD. Not only to your GOD as the Son or else the Holy Ghost, but it will lead you to your GOD as the FATHER of all, and then and there, and I hear you say, here and now, I am satisfied.
Philip said on one occasion,
'Show us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us.'
Why did he say that? It was because they had followed Jesus and they had come through by the way of Jesus and He was acting as an individual, as a committee of one for the united body of CHRIST. He asked the question to,
'Show us the FATHER and it sufficeth us.'
They had followed Jesus, and therefore, there was a hope or a probability that they would be satisfied, for they were not satisfied. Had they been satisfied, would they have said, Show us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us? It is Wonderful!
Don't you feel that you have something that they did not have? Are you not satisfied? I heard you sing and I heard you say, I am satisfied in GOD, Hallelujah to the Lamb. I am satisfied in GOD, Hallelujah to the Lamb. I am satisfied in GOD. Now I believe that you are satisfied. It is Wonderful! You look to be satisfied!
Coming out on what the mortal mind calls such hot nights as tonight, sacrificing the time that you could have out at some beach, but you find that will not satisfy. You found that would not satisfy, did you not? You could have been out on the ocean somewhat, trying to find satisfaction in some mortal human version of its own desire, but you have found that those expressions of life could not and would not satisfy. You have never been so satisfied before, have you?
Truly might have CHRIST said,
'My peace I give unto you . . . not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.'
You know I told you the other night the reason folks have the heart trouble. You know I told you the other night that folks have the heart trouble because they do not believe in ME, because they do not believe in this message of love, this message of peace and this message of good will to all men. They do not believe in it. They say you should not feed the hungry, they say you should not clothe the naked, they say you should not do this and you should not do that. But I will do it anyway. I will do it anyway!
I am going forth conquering and to conquer. Your faith is the victory that overcometh.
'This is the victory that overcometh the world, even your faith.'
Then I AM glad! So then, Dear Ones, as I say,
'No man cometh to the FATHER, but by me.'
That was left on record as a consideration that it might be some day a consolation for the hearts and minds of men. CHRIST knew there and then that the time would come when men would think that it was impossible for a man to come to the FATHER, that the FATHER was in some far distant place, far beyond the sun, moon and the stars, away up beyond the sky, when I have declared unto you that the sky is nowhere and is nothing, but is everywhere where there is nothing! And they said that Heaven was above that. But we are privileged to know that Heaven is here and now in this Divine Omnipresent Life in which we all live, move and have our being. Here and now, Dear Ones, not tomorrow, but here and now! Not when you go home, but here and now!
They that hear MY voice, harden not your heart. For this cause I will again say that Jesus said,
'No man cometh to the FATHER, but by me!'
Therefore, I put before you, I set before you continually, the Life and the Teachings of CHRIST as recorded in the Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and continue to say, let this mind be in you that was also in that Body called Jesus, and it will certain bring you to your GOD. Then you will not have any occasion to say, Fight on, my soul, until death shall bring thee to thy GOD, but you can say as I say, or as I have said, Fight on, my soul, until CHRIST shall bring thee to thy GOD. Death will not bring you to your GOD. Death will separate you from your GOD, but CHRIST will bring you to your GOD.
'I am the way, said Jesus, the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the FATHER, but by me.'
CHRIST will bring you to your GOD That is why I say continually: CHRIST in you and CHRIST in ME will make you what you ought to be. CHRIST will bring you to your GOD, Dear Ones, and you will not have occasion to sing, Fight on, my soul, till death shall bring me to my GOD. Death will separate you from your GOD, for it is the dividing line. Jesus declared through the mouth of one,
'That wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life.'
Then again he says on another occasion,
'If a man keep my sayings, he shall never see death.'
One writer records it,
'He shall not taste of death,'
but Jesus brought it out on another occasion, according to the record given in another version,
'If a man keep my sayings, he shall never see death,'
will not even see it coming near him. Will not see it within a mile of you! It will not come near your dwelling place.
The only way that you will see death is not to keep the savings of CHRIST and not to walk worthy of your vocation wherewith you are called. That is what will cause you to see death, to see death by not walking worthy of your vocation wherewith you are called. It is Wonderful!
I want to say to you, MY Dear Ones, if you will only consider these thoughts and confine yourselves to this CHRIST Consciousness that has been produced from the identical CHRIST that was in the Body called Jesus, you will see that In perfect peace I'll keep you. It is Wonderful!
'In perfect peace I'll keep thee whose mind is stayed on me.'
Take these thoughts into consideration, with your mind open to the vision that is revealed, and the very Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD will supply your every desire. And you will not have an occasion to falter nor fear, you will not have an occasion to go around talking about, I have nothing to do. I have nothing to wear. What is the matter? If you have declared that your FATHER is rich in houses and lands! Live the life.
'I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.'
Every one of you can live an independent life. One stone does not have to be left upon another. One person does not have to depend upon another. GOD is your FATHER, and you never had another. You were taught to pray, Our FATHER, and HE did not tell you to pray, Jesus' FATHER. He taught you to pray, Our FATHER.
Jesus strove to get you to apply the FATHERSHIP Degree of GOD to Him, and the FATHERSHIP Degree of GOD to each and every one of your fellow brothers, that you might see and know that GOD is your FATHER and you never had another. I know I came treading the winepress all alone. I know that I have no one to help ME, nothing but MINE own Spirit. I have didn't have anything but MY own unadulterated Spirit, for MY Spirit is just as operative without the Body as it is with the Body. And you all realize too, that it is.
I shall reign in the hearts and the minds of the people as I said today, every judge, every lawyer, every doctor, I don't care who you are, if you will not do right I shall move you from your place. I shall move you! I shall move you! I shall move you! I did not sacrifice MY Body for nothing, but that the Will of GOD might be done on earth. Every judge, every judge, every governor, every president, every lawyer, every doctor, that will not do right, we are going to move them off of their seats. That is what we are going to do. As I said before, I AM going into the journalists' field and every newspaper that will not do right, we are going to move them. That is what we are going to do. Righteousness shall reign! Righteousness shall reign! The Blood has paid it all that righteousness might have a free access on earth as in Heaven. Now aren't you glad! Aren't you glad! Aren't you glad! It is Wonderful! Aren't you glad! It is Wonderful!.
If you mean to go with ME all the way, GOD will reign! I don't want you to just stand with ME here in the religious world, but I want you to stand in all of the worlds in which I now live. We shall have a religious issue in every move, and in every party and in every organization. Everywhere the CHRIST Consciousness shall rule and reign. Nothing less than CHRIST and nothing more than GOD shall rule. We are five million strong and we are going to be ten million strong before Christmas.
I say righteousness shall reign! I say righteousness shall reign!. Opposition, debauchery and deceitfulness, deceit and hypocrisy shall to down!
Are you willing to stand for the right!. Are you willing to stand for the man that will do right? All right, then say so. (Audience on its feet.) CHRIST shall reign. And it is written,
'He rules the world with truth and with grace, And makes the nations prove The glory of HIS righteousness, And the wonders of HIS love.'
'Of the people there were none to help.'
Every mortal mind that wanted to help, every mortal mind, has been a hindrance. Every mortal mind is a hindrance to the very Truth of GOD. CHRIST shall reign! CHRIST shall reign!
'Where GOD the Son forever reigns, And scatters night away.'
It is Wonderful! You know it is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! I say, GOD the Son, right now reigns KING of Kings and LORD of Lords, and who can help it? Who can help it! It is written in Isaiah 32, I and 2, here,
'Behold a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. And a man shall be as a hiding place . . .'
We are going to have a righteous judgment, that is what we are going to have, and we are not going to allow any issue to pass that will not do right, that will not do the truth, that will not be honest, that will not be reliable, that will not be competent in all ways. Now aren't you glad! I know you are glad! Because CHRIST is reigning! HE is reigning now! Right down here! Right here on this side of Jordan! It is Wonderful! Here a tree of life is a-blooming, here is rest for the weary, and here is rest for you. Rest from your labors, and your good works will follow you here and now in this Divine Omnipresent Life in which we all live, move and have our being. Aren't you glad! (Response from audience, So glad, so glad!)
Now you act just as though you have seen the FATHER! You act like you are satisfied in GOD! Truly might have Philip said,
'Show us the FATHER, and it sufficeth us.'
I don't care if you apply your ill-gotten gains, millions and millions, you shall not have any peace and you shall not have any rest. Shall not have any peace and shall not have any rest, shall not have any health and shall not have any happiness, GOD has declared it!
'The wages of sin is death; but the gift of GOD is eternal life,'
Now what is the matter? If you are sick and you don't get well, it is because you are not living the Life, don't believe, and you are not living the life, living the Life of CHRIST. Live the Life and if you are sick you will get well. If you are in the poverty you will have something to supply you, for GOD declares,
'I will bless your going out and I will bless your coming in.
I will bless you in your storehouses, bless you in the fruits of your lands and in the fruits of your cattle, and bless you with health and long life.'
It is Wonderful! Live the Life! Live the Life, do right, and you will be blessed, you will be successful, you will be prosperous, you will be healthy, you will be happy. I say you will be every desirable attribute of good, and you will manifest it to the world.
I don't care if you don't believe it. If you don't want MY Message just say so. It is Wonderful! It is Wonderful! Live the Life! Live the Life! Live an evangelical life in words, deeds and actions. Be truthful, be kind, be faithful and modest in all of your words and in all of your ways and the very GOD of peace will be with you and you will be blessed abundantly, for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Now in closing I would just like to say, I don't will to detain you. As I started to say, I want you all to realize that because I was out at MY 'summer hotel,' because I was out at MY 'summer hotel,' better known as Riverhead jail, don't think that has discouraged ME any. It has encouraged ME a hundred percent and ten thousand percent because I have not been bound in prison. They had MY Body there and I carried MY Body there for a purpose. I say I carried MY Body there for a purpose. No man had power to carry MY Body there and no man had power to take it away. No man has taken ME away. Forget that misconception!
Lots of the prisoners said they were charged with misdemeanors like I was. Some of them didn't have but a hundred dollars, some of them didn't have that, and they said if they had money like ME they could go away. Now money did not bring ME away, even though I did spend about four or five thousand dollars in a case of misdemeanor. Money did not bring ME away. Money was the thing that tied ME there. Legal procedures were the thing that tied ME there. Money did not bring ME away, MY Spirit was what brought ME away.
Now I am willing, I AM willing and ready to go back there, if it would be necessary, and be happy to stay there, too, even though I did spend a lot of money for it. What do I care about the money? It is Wonderful! There is a full and a plenty for all, and none need lack in GOD's abundance, for there is a full and a plenty for one and for all.
I want to tell you, put your trust in GOD. GOD is your only friend. GOD is your only refuge. GOD is your only son and GOD is your only help, and GOD is your only protection, and GOD is your only hope.
No man, no man will befriend you unless they are spirit of MY Spirit and mind of MY Mind. Dollars and cents is what the mortal mind says makes the horsey run. But I wanted to tell you, I AM not dependent upon dollars and cents. I have a plenty of it and to spare, but I AM dependent upon this one eternal Life and Spirit, Ever Present here and now and everywhere, MY only refuge and MY only strength and MY only protection.
Now, Dear Ones, in MY way, in MY way, was not to try to make any defense for MYSELF, and if I had not allowed the attorneys to go in, maybe I would have been fined two hundred dollars, if they had fined ME anything. All the glory and honor belongs to GOD. You know it is Wonderful! It is just like Paul did on one occasion, not only to go there, but even to die, to be executed if I could. If MY Spirit wills to see ME go there and feels that I AM justified in being there, then I AM willing to go, because whether I go or stay, I will be with you. You know what it is all about, and you know what it is for. You know it is for your sakes and for the sake of humanity generally, and for the benefit of all of the Christian world and to bring about social equality, in other words, to bring all nations, tongues and people in one, that the Kingdom of GOD may be manifested on earth as it is in Heaven.
Now I will not detain you longer. I have apparently overstayed MY time, but the zeal of MINE house, it spirited ME up. So I will say to you, keep ME in your hearts, keep ME in your minds, lo, I will be with you, with or without a Body. I AM just as operative without the Body as I AM with the Body, for it is Spirit and it is Life, it is not matter personality, or flesh.
(Adjourned ll:30 P. M.)
A public meeting which brought numerous blessings to those who believed, in Inwood, Long Island, the Rockaways, and nearby surrounding towns, was held by FATHER DIVINE's Followers at Sons of Italy Hall, Jefferson and Madison Streets, Inward, on July l8, l932. REVEREND M. J. DIVINE and HIS immediate party of about twenty-five were the invited guests, and REVEREND DIVINE was, of course, the speaker of the evening that people had waited in day to hear.
The meeting had been in progress over seven hours when HE arrived at 8 P.M. after attending a banquet with HIS Angels, but there were those who were eager to testify to the benefits received through their faith and FATHER.*
The following was FATHER's Sermon:
PEACE, it is Wonderful! I was just thinking about the blessedness of those of you that are pure in heart. It is written,
'Blessed are the pure in heart,'
there is something they will see. For this cause we can rejoice and when we see something, we become to be like unto that which we gaze upon or visualize. It is Wonderful!
'Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.'
And again I say, blessed are those of you that will subjugate yourselves to the CHRIST Consciousness and bring your bodies into subjection to same entirely, and will live an Evangelical life, having substantiated faith and unshaken confidence. Again I say, blessed are ye that have had faith to believe that you could be healed, and so it was and so it is. It is Wonderful!. I say again, blessed are you that were radical enough to be willing to make a sacrifice to that end that you might receive the blessings for which CHRIST died and for which I came. Therefore you are rejoicing because you also have received of the fruit of the same.
I AM rejoicing because you are blessed that have been persecuted or criticized for MY great Name sake, says the LORD. I AM rejoicing because great is one's reward in Heaven when men shall persecute you and say all manner of evil against you for MY Name's sake. In that way all can rejoice together, for all have travailed and groaned in pain together until now. You have been waiting for the adoption to be recognized by the Almighty and to recognize GOD as your FATHER, and that GOD may adopt you or rebirth you manifestedly as HIS own, and there is no other one. It is Wonderful! You have been waiting for the adoption, to wit, for the redemption of the body to the manifestation of the Sons of GOD.
Blessed are you that have come to this place in consciousness, who know the you are in and among the number that have manifested the Son of GOD. Having manifested the Son of GOD, you have come to this conscious realization that GOD is your FATHER and there is no other, no mother, no father, no sister nor brother. But realize this and believe thou this, for he that believeth, to him shall be the abundance of the fullness of all good things imputed. That is why we can never find a place too small or too large that we cannot fill. It is because we visualize the abundance of the fullness of the consciousness of good
We are conscious that GOD is here and now, and wheresoever you may be, for
'He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.'
Do you realize that you have been walking and talking in GOD, and GOD has been walking and talking in you all the way alone? It is Wonderful! But you did not know it. You had an idea that GOD was in your imaginations. You saw GOD some place far beyond the blue ether, as it is supposed to be, and that is nothing and nowhere and everywhere where there is nothing. It is Wonderful!
Now many may say to you that you must die and go far beyond the sky to meet your GOD, and that has been and still is being taught by many. But we are conscious that here and now and here and there and everywhere is your GOD. It is Wonderful! I say, suppose you would take for your consideration your radio as a sketch of a reflection of this great Truth from that standpoint of view. You can tune in with your radio and you can prove to yourselves conclusively that the message that you will hear in and through your radio, the music, is in the air. You can convince yourselves that the message that has been broadcast somewhere in New York City, in California, or any other place, that message is here and it is there and everywhere. It is Wonderful! That will go, and will stay, and will stand, and will move to prove to you conclusively that the Word of GOD has always been with you but you did not tune in on this Principle to receive the same, and you did not have a radio, did you? It is Wonderful!
If you don't happen to have a radio you will not get any music in your home, will you? But if you have a radio installed in your home, why you can get the music direct from the broadcasting station. GOD is the great broadcaster of HIMSELF. GOD broadcasted HIMSELF nineteen hundred years ago, and not only then, but HE transmuted HIMSELF for thousand and four years B.J., better known as B.C. It is Wonderful! GOD transmuted HIMSELF and prepared HIMSELF a Body, and HE spoke through the Body as being called man. It was GOD all the time. It is Wonderful! There has not been anything else but GOD that could speak and move, for it is written,
'In HIM we live, and move, and have our being.'
Then again I further say that in HIM you live, and move, and have your being, as well as we, as a universal body. Then individually, in you GOD lives, and moves, and has HIS Being. That is where GOD has been all the time. It is Wonderful! That is where GOD has been all the time.
But we realize that a great theatrical or movie producer, he must be qualified to produce pictures to satisfy the desire of the public.
GOD is qualified to produce and reproduce HIS pictures in words, in deeds and in actions, in characteristics, in qualities of every kind. It is Wonderful! GOD is qualified to produce HIS picture in HIS most precious and desirable attributes, HIS qualities, and all of HIS characteristics. GOD desires that these qualities be produced and be brought to the highest expansion of HIMSELF here and now, but it can only be done by your subjugating yourselves to the CHRIST Consciousness as did Jesus, the great Love Master. And Jesus, the great Love Master. He subjugated Himself to the Will of GOD that the Will of GOD might be done in HIM as it was in the invisible realm of His Majesty; in the spirit of meekness in a Body, a Body of simplicity, a Body that was supposed to have been humiliated after the manner of His birth and after the manner of His upbringing. It is Wonderful
And through the depressions and oppressions that He had to go through, this Body was somewhat humiliated and yet with that and with all of that, this same CHRIST produced and brought forth to the world the Perfect Idea, the Perfect Picture, the Perfect Ideal of Life, and set it forth by recognizing Himself to be one with GOD by first making Himself one with all mankind. It is Wonderful!.
You cannot be one with GOD, Dear Ones, until you come to that place in consciousness that you are one with your fellow man. How can you as an individual be superior to your fellow brother and be one with GOD? It is Wonderful! There are those of you, the human race, think after the manner of your professions, classifications, socialites, racial pride, political prejudice and racial prejudice, etc., think the classification of yourselves, nationalism, etc., and races and colors and creeds, that it will make you better than your fellow brother. But I wish to say unto you that you cannot produce the CHRIST Life in the world until you become to be one with your fellow brother that you may be one with GOD. It is Wonderful! GOD condescends to impute HIMSELF unto man.
It is a great condescension for GOD to impute HIMSELF unto man, but GOD so loved the world that HE desired to save the world through and by imputing HIMSELF unto man. That would be the way and means that HE would come in the world and redeem the world from the chaotic condition, yea, even at this present time.
It is Wonderful! And while HE came in the likeness of sinful flesh, for sin, to condemn sin in the flesh, HE came in you to produce and reproduce the identical CHRIST Consciousness, principle, characteristic, nature and all of HIS qualities that HE had and was the expresser of in the Body called Jesus.
That is the way that HE came to save the world. That is the way that HE has saved you.
Therefore, we can see and declare unto the world conclusively that as with your radio, so with the CHRIST in the world. It is Wonderful! I know that there are many, it is true, that have declared ME as an individual, to be GOD. But I have not yet one stone unturned. I have not left one stone unturned. I have not left for a cause of stumbling. I have set before you an open door, that everyone may realize that they have the same right as I, to bring forth the CHRIST to the environment of the souls of the children of men that GOD is in you and GOD is in them. It is Wonderful! This can be done by each one of you and by your living an Evangelical life.
If you will live an Evangelical life, exactly, I say, according to the Life and Teaching of CHRIST, as recorded by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, letting this mind be in you that was also in Him, you can say to that man or this woman here that think they were or are sick, to go in peace and sin no more, and they can walk in the light. It is Wonderful! CHRIST, the great Love Master said so plainly even unto all of those that He sent out to,
'Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel.'
He did not say that of yourselves you can do anything, but He said,
'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.'
It is Wonderful! He said,
'These signs shall follow them that believe; in my name they shall cast out d-v-ls . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'
Now I want to say to Inwood, and those that are around and about the borders of Rockaway and Far Rockaway, I have not come to do you any harm. I have come to do you good. It is Wonderful! Through believing, many have been abundantly blessed, wonderfully blessed! Now I did not come to bring or to advocate any curses, but I came to advocate and to bring blessings unto the bodies of the children of men that you may dwell in the midst of them in peace and harmony and love. It is Wonderful! But I wish to say that as it is written,
'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.'
But there is not so much to do to be d-m-ed as there is to be saved. There is more for you to do to be saved than there is for you to do to be d-m-ed. Therefore, you have a work to do that believe.
It is written,
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.
Then it says
'These signs shall follow them that believe. In my name shall they cast out d-v-ls . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'
It is Wonderful! But what did it say in reference to them that believe not? It did not say that they would have anything to do but just believe not!
So to you that are in and around the borders of Rockaway and all around Long Island, you that believe, you have a work to do. You have more to do to be saved than they that believe not have to do to be d-m-ed. It is Wonderful! You never stopped to consider that, I know you didn't You don't have anything much to do to be d-m-ed, but you have more to do to be saved.
'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not . . . '
that is all you have to do to be d-m-ed. I AM talking about the Word of GOD! It is Wonderful!
GOD spoke away back through the mouth of Moses. You will find it recorded in the twenty-eighth chapter of Deuteronomy. GOD said back there as HE talked through Moses as HE now teaches through you, GOD said,
'I set before you a blessing and a cursing.'
'I set before you life and death.'
GOD did not give you death, but GOD breathed in you the breath of life and you became a living soul. But HE set before you a blessing and a cursing. It is Wonderful! HE set before you life and death. Therefore you can partake of life and live, but, MY Dear Ones, it will take more for you to do to inherit eternal life than it will for you to do to inherit d-m-ation. It is Wonderful! It is not that you have much to do to be d-m-ed, but you have more to do to be saved.
Take these thoughts into consideration, though I AM speaking them scateringly and radically, but insignificant as I may appear to be, I came out on the scene for your salvation. It is Wonderful! GOD said through the mouth of Moses to the children of Israel, Deuteronomy the twenty-eighth chapter, as I before said, I set before you a blessing and a cursing, life and death, if you will love ME and keep MY commandments. Don't you see you have something to do to inherit eternal life? But you don't have much to do to be d-m-ed. You can go around and do little or nothing to be d-m-ed. It is Wonderful! You don't have to do a thing if you don't want to, just disbelieve, that is all, and you will go around and you cannot get anybody in your church.
And go around from your hand to mouth, go around with padlocks on your churches and all such as that. Just disbelieve! You don't have to do anything. It is Wonderful!
But when you do something that is detrimental to the Will of GOD, why then, you get an answer to that real quickly, if you get in the way. But I say the Word says,
'I set before you a blessing and a cursing, life and death, and if you love me and will keep my commandments, I will bless your going out.'
That is what GOD said, and
'I will bless your coming in. I will bless you in your storehouses, I will bless you in your baskets, I will bless you in the Fruits of your lands, I will bless you in the fruits of your cattle, I will even bless you in the fruit of your body.'
I AM talking about you will not have to have deformed children, I will bless you in the fruits of your body, bless you in whatsoever you are doing. Whatsoever you lay your hand to will prosper. That is what GOD said.
Then again, HE came back and said,
'But if you do not love me and keep my commandments, I will curse your going out, I will curse your coming in, I will curse you in your storehouses, I will curse you in your baskets.'
What is the matter with someone not having something to eat? HE said HE would curse you in your storehouses, in your baskets, in the fruits of your lands, in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your body. What is the matter that they have fevers and pneumonia and consumption and such things? HE said,
'I will curse you with the consumption and with the fever, and these shall consume you until you shall perish off of the face of the earth.'
It is Wonderful!
Do you not see that you have more to do to be saved than you have to go to be d-m-ed? You don't have to do very much to be d-m-ed, just disbelieve, but it is sure death for you when you blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, for there is no forgiveness for you in this world, says the LORD, nor in the world to come. It is Wonderful! There is no way to escape when you neglect, and especially when you try to hinder such a great salvation. But to you that are faithful, to you that are true, to you that will live an Evangelical life, you don't need to falter nor fear, for I AM with you, and there shall be no more sorrow, for GOD has wiped away all tear. Think of the Glorious privilege that you have, as well as I, to produce, as the producer of a beautiful picture.
Every artist tries to bring out the perfect picture of his vision or of his mind. The thing that he visualizes most vividly, he tries to express himself in that picture, whatsoever it may be. Now each one of you is expressing himself to the world in the picture of your life that you present to the world, and you are bringing, as a Christian, or as a believer of the CHRIST, you are presenting to the world your idea concerning the CHRIST and you are giving us to know conclusively whether you have the perfect idea of the CHRIST or not. It is Wonderful!
Now if you have an imperfect idea of the CHRIST, or of the picture that you are endeavoring to draw, or if you are a sculptor, if you are endeavoring to form an image of someone or something, and you have not the right idea, you will not produce the right picture, you will not produce the right statue, don't you see? But if you have the right idea, if you are a perfect sculptor, if you are a perfect producer, don't you see, you can produce the perfect picture that will be desired.
The lives that you live are but the outer expression of the condition of the mind within, and that is what you are producing and bringing forth to the world as the ideal of your life, whether it is good or evil. It is Wonderful! But when you shall have brought forth the perfect picture, Dear Ones, then and there, and right here and now, you will be a desirable artist, you will be a desirable sculptor, and you will be called upon by the kings and the queens of each country to do such as that for them and for their throne. It is but a sketch of a reflection of how that when you draw the perfect picture, GOD in your lives, the perfect picture of the CHRIST, and produce HIM to the world, you will be called upon by the great I AM, to be an artist, to be a producer, to be a sculpture, to be a photographer; and not only that but to be a radio for the Kingdom of GOD, to produce the perfect voice, the perfect life, the perfect figure, the perfect model, to the world and lift up as a standard in the Kingdom of GOD, and therefore you can serve GOD. It is Wonderful! You cannot serve GOD until you can produce something, until you can produce something that is desired by HIM and that will come near the perfect image of the likeness of HIM that liveth forever and ever. And when you do, then and there GOD will accept you as a sculptor, as I afore said, or as a producer, or in other words as a photographer, or as a radio for the Kingdom of GOD, that you may produce the perfect voice, the perfect love, the perfect spirit and the perfect man as a figure and a type for others to go by in the Kingdom of our GOD here and now. I Seem To Be It Unto You
That is what all of this is about. Why is it that they will come here and come after ME from far and near, from all parts of the globe, not only in America, but from all parts of the world? They are coming after ME. They have sought ME out, and still I AM telling them it is not that they must necessarily contact ME Personally, but still there is a yearning in their hearts, a longing in their minds. Their souls want something that is new and their souls and their bodies have desired something that will satisfy, because society, they have found that it will not satisfy. Therefore, they visualized the Perfect Picture when it was brought into visibility, and then and there and here and now I hear I them say that, I see the living GOD. It is Wonderful! Why do you say that you see the living GOD? It is because the Perfect Picture has been produced and has been brought into visibility, and therefore you cannot see another. I seem to be it unto you!
It is your privilege to produce the same identical likeness, or the identical duplicate of the identical Duplicator. You may not be imputedly the Duplicator, but you can be the duplicate. You may not be the Creator, but you can express the creation of things. You may not be the Demonstrator, but you can express and manifest the demonstration, for the picture that you have seen, 'A copy LORD of Thine', and that is what all of this is about. Whether you be the ideal, or the idealist, or the seeming idol or kindness or image, and fashioned like unto the image, you will imputedly or reputedly be the identical likeness rather than the substitute or rather than the duplicate, whatever you may term it to be. It is Wonderful!
That is why they are coming seeking ME from all parts of the world, because I don't even ask anyone to come to hear ME. I don't ask anyone to follow ME. I don't ask anyone to come for any blessings, to correspond with ME or anything of that kind, through the mails, for I know that your truer contact is to be made from a mental and spiritual standpoint of view.
