are from of old, from ancient times." - Micah 5:2

At the time of the Crucifixion
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Psalm 22:1, "They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my
vesture." - Psalm 22:18
My God! My God! Why hast Thou forsaken me?
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" - Mark
15:34, Matthew 27:46
"And they crucified him, and parted his garments,
casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the
prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did
they cast lots." Matthew 27:35
This came, as He promised, that that anguish, that despair may not
be in thy experience. It was a fulfilling; that the trials, the
temptations might be shortened in the days of expression, that the
very elect might not be disturbed in their search for Him.

through the Holy Spirit
There are, there can be such to those who Open themselves into the
Will of the Father-God, that Their wills are one with His. And in
such even in the earth there comes the natural to be unnatural, and
the unnatural natural. For Nature proclaims God, as the unnatural in
nature magnifies God.
Souls will evolve into the manner to be able to bring into the world
souls, even as Mary did. And these may come as the souls of men and
women become more and more aware that these channels, these temples
of the body are Indeed the temple of the living God and may be used
for those communications with God, the Father of the souls of men!
Is Jesus the only
begotten Son of God?
In this, to give the full concept, is to give the history then, of
all those who have entered into flesh Without that act which man
knows as copulation. For as those experiences Jesus, known as Jesus,
came into the earth, the First that were of the sons of God to enter
flesh. There the first and only begotten of God. Again, as names
would say, Enoch walked with God, became aware of God in his
movements, Still that entity, that Soul called Jesus, as
Melchizedek, without father, without mother, came, Still the soul of
Jesus; the portion of God that manifests. But each son, each
daughter, through these very acts of the only begotten, of the son
of Mary, of the first in the earth, of that without father and
without mother, without days, without years, becomes then as the
elder brother to all who are Born in the earth, as the maker, as the
creator, as the first, as the last; as the beginning, as the end of
man's soul's experience through the earth and throughout the spheres
of consciousness in and about the earth. Thus is He the only
begotten, the firstborn, the first to know flesh, the first to
purify it. And so man in his concepts, in his understandings, in his
wisdom of God, purifies, here a little, there a little. The example
of Jesus of Nazareth, who became the Christ, the Son of God, as each
soul as a son of God; but He was the first; the light, the way, the
truth; the high priest of the soul of men, the brother in mind and
body; that we as individuals might know the Father-God. He was with
the Father from the beginning, and He in the earth manifested a
material expression. Not that any attains to perfection other than
by passing through the earth without error, without fault. Each in
self attains to perfection even as He. While the judgment from
material things brought death and thus it was judged from the court
of Herod, from those activities of the high priest, as error, but in
the sight of God, in the sight of truth, in the sight of law, He was
perfect, without fault, without blemish.
Jesus the Man
In the illustration we find the man called Jesus.
In this: This man, as man, makes the will the will of the
Father, then becoming one with the Father and the model for man.
In this man called Jesus we find at a Oneness with the Father,
the Creator, passing through all the various stages of
In mental perfect, in wrath perfect, in flesh made perfect, in
love become perfect, in death become perfect, in psychic become
perfect, in mystic become perfect, in consciousness become
perfect, in the greater ruling forces becoming perfect, and is
as the model, and through the compliance with such laws made
perfect, destiny, the pre-destined, the fore-thought, the will,
The condition made perfect, and is an ensample for man, and only
as a man, for He lived only as man. He died as man.
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being
in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But
made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a
servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in
fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto
death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at
the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and
things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
Father." - Philippians 2:5-11
How may we regard the truth
regarding Jesus in relation to the Jewish and Christian
religions, and to all the other religions of the world?
In that the man, Jesus, became the ensample of the flesh,
manifest in the world, and the will one with the Father, he
became the first to manifest same in the material world.
Thus, from man's viewpoint, becoming the only, the first, the
begotten of the Father, and the ensample to the world, whether
Jew, Gentile, or of any other religious forces.
In this we find the true advocate with the Father, in that He,
as man, manifest in the flesh the ability of the flesh to make
fleshly desires one with the will of the spirit.
For God is spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in
spirit and in truth, just as Jesus manifested in the flesh, and
able to partake of the divine, for making all laws susceptible
to the mandates.
For the will was one with the Father, and in this we find He
takes on all law, and a law unto Himself.
For with the compliance, of even an earthly or material law,
such an person is the law.
And in that Jesus lived as man, and died as man, and in that
became the ensample to all who would approach the Throne of God.
As we see in all the religions of the world, we find all
approaching those conditions where man may become as the law in
his connection with the divine, the supreme, the oneness, of the
In Jesus we find the answer.
What, then, will
you do with Jesus?
For He is the Way, He is the Light, He is the Hope, He Is ready.
Will you let Him into thy heart? or will you keep Him afar or apart?
Will ye not eat of His body, of the bread of life? Drink from that
fountain that He builds in the minds, the hearts, the souls of those
that seek to know Him and His purposes with men, with the world!
For having overcome the world, He Indeed has it, as it were, in
the palm of His hand; and has entrusted to you this world, because
of His faith, His love for you. What will you do about Jesus and His
trust In You?
As these, then, are the things that you have oft heard in one manner
or another, they have become to some passe; they have become to
others as "How can it be?"; they are to others still just a
question. But "Try ye the spirits." Know those that know Him are in
accord with that which is His purpose, His desire, with men.
Then, how may you as individuals in your various spheres of
activity, in your walks of life among men that think not of Him,
carry on? By just showing forth that He hath given. Though others
may be unjust, rail not; for it indeed must be that these things
come, but woe to them by whom they come!
Rather know that the meek, the patient, those that are of one mind
in Him Shall, Shall, inherit the earth, the possessions thereof!
Learn ye what to do with them. For if you say, "Had I much, I would
give to the poor; had I plenty I would be kind to the unfortunate,"
and you do not do the same with your mite, you would not do it if
you had much! What said He?
"She that cast in the penny gave more than them all." So you are
only fooling yourselves if you are not giving, doing, being, even
thy little! For as He has given, it is the leaven that leaveneth the
whole lump. Be gentle, be kind, be patient; for the earth is thy
Do ye claim Him as thy brother, as thy friend, as thy neighbour? Do
that, for thy own sake, for His sake! So much He has given! What
hast thou done! For as ye do it unto the least of thy brethren, ye
do it unto Him. That is the law!
The Celestial Sphere
When a soul, passes into any sphere, with that it has builded in its
celestial body, it must occupy, to a finite mind, space, place,
time. Hence, to a finite
mind, a body can only be in a place, a position. An attitude, sure,
for that of a onement with, or attunement with, the Whole.
For, God is love; hence occupies a space, place, condition, and is
the Force that permeates all activity.
So, Christ is the ruling force in the world that man, in his finite
mind, the material body, must draw to self of that sphere of which
the entity, the soul, is a part, of whatever period of experience,
to be conscious of an existence in
that particular sphere or plane.
Is Jesus the Christ on any particular
sphere or is He manifesting on the earth plane in another body?
All power in heaven, in earth, is given to Him who overcame. Hence
He is of Himself in space, in the force that impels through faith,
through belief, in the individual entity. As a Spirit Entity. Hence
not in a body in the earth, but may come at will to him who Wills to
be one with, and acts in love to make same possible. For, He shall
come as ye have seen Him go, in the Body He occupied in Galilee. The
body that He formed, that was crucified on the cross, that rose from
the tomb, that walked by the sea, that appeared to Simon, that
appeared to Philip, that appeared to John.
Wherever He is, how may I contact Him so that I may see Him and hear
The making of the will of self one with His will makes a whole
attunement with Him. He Will, with the making of self in accord and
desiring same, speak with thee.
"Be not afraid, it is I."
The proper symbols, or
similes, for the Master, the Christ

“Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith
unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the
last day. Jesus said unto her, I Am the Resurrection, and the Life:
he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And
whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou
this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the
Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”
"Thomas saith unto him,
Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from
henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth
us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet
hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou
not that I Am in the Father, and the Father in Me? the words that I
speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth
in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I Am in the Father, and
the Father in Me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works
that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he
do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my
name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, and without Him, the
speaker there, Jesus, as ye call Him, the light, as He is in the
mind and soul of individual entities, without Him, there is no way
to the Father. He speaks to thee: "Ask in my name." "Love ye one
another." Is His last command. Pure, simple; not possessive, but
love that casteth out fear, that putteth the heart, the mind, the
soul at ease and not in doubt and in fear.
Life is an essence of the Father. The Christ, taking up the life of
the man Jesus, becomes life in glory; and may be glorified in each
atom of a physical body that attunes self to the consciousness and
the Will of the Christ Spirit.
In the Christ Consciousness, then, there is the oneness of self,
self's desires, self's abilities, made in at-onement with the forces
that may bring to pass that which is sought by an individual entity
or soul. Hence at that particular period self was in accord.
The Names of the Living God, The First Created
Known that the Lord is a
personal God, He partakes of the Creation with you. For as He chose
to enter, so ye have entered. As He chose to live, so may ye live.
As He chose to give of Himself that there might be a greater
understanding, a greater knowledge; yea, the showing forth of the
wisdom of God that God Is love, poured forth upon the children of
men in this experience. And in the coming into the influence of
those that would open themselves for an understanding might there be
the approach to Him. He has come in all ages through those that were
the spokesmen to a people in this age, that age, called unto a
purpose for the manifestation of that first idea.

First Law, A First Principle:
"Know, O Israel, the Lord thy God Is One!"
All power, all force, is a manifestation of that which is termed the
God-consciousness. These are elemental or first statements, first
principles. Then, the application of an entity in materiality, is
that of the first and the last law: "Love the Lord thy God with all

This may take in its study and
understand why the spirit of life, the spirit of light, of hope, of
desire to know the truth, must be greater than that man has called
scientific proof, and yet it is the science of light, of truth, of
love, of hope, of desire, of God. Study these well, as ye have in
thy experiences in the earth. Study each to show self approved unto
God, in the light of that which may be had by each in their
concerted, cooperative efforts to bring the knowledge of the power
of the Holy One in the experience of those that would seek His face.
Not as unto self-exaltation, that in the experience of each has
brought those things that in their associations in the present make
for doubts and fears and desires and disturbances that burn and
burn, yet all must be tried so as by fire. And the fires of the
flesh in their activity in material associations must be purified in
the love even as the Father gave, that all may know that each walk
together with the Son, with the Father, with the Giver of all good
and perfect gifts. That there may come, through those promises that
have been given, that in the body may be found that signifying the
purposes in which the activities of the very hearts and souls may
bring into the experiences of others, those things that will make
for harmony, joy, peace, to those that seek to know His face. For,
we shall see Him as He is. He will walk among men. He will be in
they midst. Be thou, then, those that will make His paths straight;
for narrow is the way yet straight is the gate that leads to that
knowledge that may be had in Him. Search deep into the heart, the
soul of self, and see from whence cometh that motivating force that
Drives self on to activity. If it is for laudation of self alone, if
it is for the aggrandizement of the interests in material things
alone, then know, while you may materially succeed, the Ends thereof
are not well. But seek through those activities that bring the
analyzing of same in the human body, in the human relationships,
that may be spiritualized by the desires of the heart, and you will
find joy and peace, and, yea, in those days, when His forerunner may
come into the earth for preparing the place for the Son of man, that
His kingdom may be established in the earth, wilt thou be ready?

nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a
branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast
them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in
me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye
will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father
glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my
disciples." - John 15:5-8
23. And he set the bread in
order upon it before the Lord; as the Lord had commanded

them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never
thirst." - John 6:35
"I am the living bread which came down from heaven:
if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever:

put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation,
over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle

the Lord commanded Moses.
"Then spake Jesus again
unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that
followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have
the light of life." - John 8:12
26. And he put the golden
altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:
27. And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the Lord
"I am the good
shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the

28. And he set
up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
"Then said Jesus unto
them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the
door of the sheep." - John 10:7
And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of
the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and
offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat
offering; as the Lord commanded Moses.
And he set the laver between the tent of the
congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash
withal." - Exodus 40:1-30

He has not willed that any should
be lost, but has prepared the way of escape in Him, the Maker? But
who is the worthy servant? He that has endured unto the end! He Is the Life! He Is the
resurrection! And in Him is life, light and joy that maketh all else
as but naught. For, what must be obliterated? Hate, prejudice,
selfishness, backbiting, unkindness, anger, passion, and those
things of the mire that are created in the activities of the sons of
1 Corinthians 15
Moreover, brethren, I declare
unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye
have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye
keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed
For I delivered unto you first of
all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our
sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that
he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas,
then of the 12:
After that, he was seen of above
500 brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this
present, but some are fallen asleep.
After that, he was seen of James;
then of all the apostles.
And last of all he was seen of me
also, as of one born out of due time.
For I am the least of the
apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I
persecuted the church of God.
But by the grace of God I am what
I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain;
but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the
grace of God which was with me.
Therefore whether it were I or
they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
Now if Christ be preached that he
rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no
resurrection of the dead?
But if there be no resurrection
of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
And if Christ be not risen, then
is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false
witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he
raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead
For if the dead rise not, then is
not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your
faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen
asleep in Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope
in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
But now is Christ risen from the
dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, by
man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so
in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order:
Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his
Then cometh the end, when he
shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father;
when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and
For he must reign, till he hath
put all enemies under his feet.

People Risen from Death by Jesus
1. Jesus Raises a widow's Son
"And it came to pass the day after, that he went into
a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and
much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold,
there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and
she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when
the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep
not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood
And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that
was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his
mother. And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God,
saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God
hath visited his people. And this rumour of him went forth
throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about."
2. Jesus Raises Lazarus
"Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It
was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take ye away the
stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him,
Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest
believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away
the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted
up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people
which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent
me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice,
Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and
foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin.
Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go." - John 11:38-44
3. Jesus Raises a young Girl
yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's
house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the
Master. But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying,
Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. And when he
came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and
James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. And
all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead,
And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was
dead. And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called,
saying, Maid, arise. And her spirit came again, and she arose
straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. And her parents were
astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what
was done." - Luke 8:49-56
So then faith cometh
by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But I say, Have they not heard? Yes
verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto
the ends of the world.
"The word which came unto Jeremiah
from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of
Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,
Inquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar king
of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal
with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from
us. Then said Jeremiah unto them,
Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah: Thus saith the LORD God of
Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your
hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against
the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls, and I will
assemble them into the midst of this city. And I myself will fight against
you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger,
and in fury, and in great wrath. And I will smite the inhabitants
of this city, both man and beast: they shall die of a great
pestilence. And afterward, saith the LORD, I
will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the
people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from
the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king
of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of
those that seek their life: and he shall smite them with the edge of
the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have
mercy. And unto this people thou shalt
say, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I set before you the way of life,
and the way of death. He that abideth in this city
shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence:
but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege
you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey. For I have set my face against
this city for evil, and not for good, saith the LORD: it shall be
given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it
with fire." - Jeremiah 21
"For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out
of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall
see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was
despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did
esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his
and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:
he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her
shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare
his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living:
for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his
death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief:
when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his
seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall
prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by
his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall
bear their iniquities.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall
divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his
soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he
bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
- Isaiah 53
"To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that
they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them
which are sanctified by faith that is in me. But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and
throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that
they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for
repentance." - Acts 26
"Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing,
and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are
the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife,
saith the Lord. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the
curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and
strengthen thy stakes; for thou shalt break forth on the right hand
and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make
the desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded;
for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame
of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood
any more. For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and
thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth
shall he be called." - Isaiah 54
The Lord He Is God
The Immanuel Prophecy
“Moreover the Lord spoke
again to Ahaz, saying, “Ask a sign for yourself from the Lord your
God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above.” But Ahaz said, “I will not
ask, nor will I test the Lord!” Then he said, “Hear now, O
house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will
you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a
sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall
call His name Immanuel.” - Isaiah 7:10-14
Hebrew name Immanuel
עִמָּנוּאֵל, meaning "God with us".
The Lord He Is God
The Lord who Is God was born by the Father (in other words by
Himself), not by human intervention in the part of Joseph. Jesus
was not conceived by two earthly parents; He was born of a virgin
through a miraculous work of Himself God. He was born Holy, without
born of a virgin might seem impossible: even Jesus’ mother, Mary,
asked, “How will this be?
said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a
man?” In Matthew 1:20 “Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto
him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take
unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of
the Holy Ghost”. Luke
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life”, and God Himself—God in human flesh.

I Timothy 3:16 “And
without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was
manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels,
preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up
into glory.” Yes, He was fully man
Jesus, but He was also fully God Christ, Colossians 2:9 “For
in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily”. Christ said
He existed before Abraham John 8:58 “Verily, verily, I
say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am Before Abraham was, I Am
before the worlds were I Am”.
Christ our God stated that: “I and my
Father are One”, John 10:30, and that the Christ is equal with the
Father: John 5:17-18 "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work".
Therefore they sought the more to kill him, because he not only
had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father,
making himself equal with God.”
said He has the Authority to Judge the Nations
“When the Son of man shall
come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he
sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered
all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a
shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the
sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say
unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit
the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and
ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a
stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick,
and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall
the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred,
and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a
stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick,
or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say
unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also
unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into
everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and
ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a
stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick,
and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also
answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst,
or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister
unto thee?Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of
the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away
into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” -
who Is God Raised People from the Dead
“Verily, verily, I say
unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear
the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath
life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in
himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also,
because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for
the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall
hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto
the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation.” - John
Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy
sins be forgiven thee. But
there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in
their hearts, Why
doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God
only? And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they
so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye
these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick
of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take
up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath
power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy),
I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into
thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went
forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and
glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.” - Mark 2:5-12
Things only God can Do
Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and

the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit
the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's,

Christ left a lot of
evidence that He Is God
The evidence includes
fulfilled prophecy, recorded miracles, in which Christ reversed the
Laws of Nature. Christ also lived and gave the example of a sinless
life, something no one else has done. Hebrews 4:15 “For we have not an high
priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;
but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
Luke 4:8, Jesus says, “For it is written, Thou shalt worship the
Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
said and showed many times that He is the Lord. Christ
says, for example, that He is: “Fear not; I Am the first and the
last: I Am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I Am alive for
evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” - Revelation
when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right
hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I Am the first and the

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto
him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with
all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great
commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and
the prophets." - Matthew 22:36-40
"And after eight days
again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came
Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace
be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and
behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my
side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and
said unto him, My Lord and my God." - John 20:26-28
In the study, forsake not, of course, the true way and light. As is
given from the beginning: God said: "Let there be light" and there
was light, and that light became, and is the light of the world. For
it is true that light, that knowledge, the understanding of that
Jesus who became the Christ, is indeed thy elder brother and yet
Creator, Maker of the universe; and thus are ye a part of same and a
directing influence. Then, as ye practice His principles ye become
aware of same. And these are first: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, thy mind, thy soul, and thy neighbour as
thyself." Love the Lord, eschew evil, do good to thy fellow
man; this is the whole law.
The Lord He Is God
His will in all things be done!
For He Is the way, and He
asks that all follow in that way
Christ if the Way The Truth and the Light
"I, John, would speak with
thee concerning the Lord, the Master, as He walked among men. As
given, if all that He did and said were written, I suppose the world
would not contain all that may be said." As He, the Christ, is in
His glory that was ordained of the Father, He may be approached by
those who in sincerity and earnestness seek to know Him - and to be
guided by Him. As He has given, by faith
all things are made possible through belief in His name. Believest thou? Then let
thine activities bespeak that thou wouldst have, in spirit, in
truth. Seek, then, each in your
own way and manner, to magnify that you, as souls, as beings, would
make manifest of His love, in the way He will show thee day by day. As He came into the world,
as man knows the world, then He became as man; yet in the spirit
world He seeks to make manifest that sought by those who do His
biddings. For, as He gave, "If ye
love me, keep my commandments. These are not new, and are
not grievous, that ye love one another - even as the Father loveth
The Christ Consciousness
is a universal consciousness of the Father Spirit.
The Jesus consciousness is
that man builds as body worship. In the Christ
Consciousness, then, there is the oneness of self, self's desires,
self's abilities, made in atonement with the forces that may bring
to pass that which is sought by an individual entity or soul. Hence
at that particular period self was in accord. Hence the physical
consciousness had the desire to make it an experience of the whole
consciousness of self. Seek this the more often.
He will speak with thee, for His promises are true, every one of
them. "Even, I
John, experienced when I looked behind me from the cave and saw that
the without and within are One," (John 11:38 - John's witnessing the
healing of Lazarus) when the desires of the heart make each atom of the
physical body vibrate with the consciousness of, the belief and the
faith and the presence of, the Christ life, the Christ
Consciousness. Life is
an essence of the Father. The Christ, taking up the life of the man
Jesus, becomes life in glory; and may be glorified in each atom of a
physical body that attunes self to the consciousness and the Will of the Christ
Spirit. The Christ-Consciousness is the
awareness within each soul, imprinted in pattern on the mind and
waiting to be awakened by the will, of the soul's oneness with God. Christ represents the Evolution of
this Spirit Energy into Flesh Man, the Perfect Flesh Man.
Christ's evolution to His present
Spiritual Oneness with the Whole Spirit Force (not an all powerful
individual man floating around spirit like in the atmosphere or
somewheres in the heavens) but an energy capable of acting
here-there-everywhere throughout the realm (all power over Heaven
and Earth) but a Self Conscious Intelligent Rational Energy, a 4th
dimension Energy fully evolved, such is God.
How may I be in closer contact with Christ?
By making the will, the desire of the heart, one with His, believing
in faith, in patience, all becomes possible in Him, through Him to
the Father; for He gave it as it is. Believest thou? Then,
"according to thy faith be it done in thee".
Theophanies of God The Christ the
God of All Humankind
The term Theophany has acquired
a specific usage for Christians and Jews with respect to the Bible:
It refers to the manifestation of the Abrahamic God to people.
Do you want to waste your Life?
For being holy is just being kind, gentle, patient, long-suffering.
These are manners, means and ways of finding why, how, these
influences, that bespeak of the soul's relationship to the Creative
Be not afraid when it is said, "It is I"
Rather, then, the experiences that are necessary for making aware
within the consciousness of self how the inner self may be
controlled by those powers, those influences, that an entity, an
individual, entertains. Be not unmindful that ye entertain strangers
that come to thee in thine consciousness, that reaches to the inner
self and to the cosmic spheres; for angels are often entertained.
Then, clothe and feed them only upon the words and the activities of
the spirit of truth, and through same may come those experiences
that have been long sought; for the time is near at hand.
The Teachings of the Living Christ
The One and Only
Commandment of Christ to Humankind
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as
I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all
men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God as thyself, and thy neighbour as thyself, with thy heart,
with thy mind, with thy purpose.
Would you ask God to do for you that you would not do for your
If you would, you are
selfish, and know not God. For as ye do it unto the
least of thy brethren, ye do it unto thy Maker. These are not mere words,
they are that as ye will Experience, if ye would know Him at all.
For He is not past finding
out; and if ye will know Him, tune in to Him; turn, look, hope, act
in such a way that ye Expect Him, thy God, to meet thee face to
face. "Be not afraid, it is I," saith He that came to those seeking to know their relationship with
their Maker. And because He came
walking in the night, in the darkness, even upon the waters, they
were afraid. Yea, many of you become
afraid because of the things that ye hear, for ye say, "I do not
Understand, I do not Comprehend!" Why? Have ye so belittled thyself, thy
body, thy mind, thy consciousness, that thou hast seared, that thou
hast made of none effect those opportunities within thine own
consciousness to know thy Maker?
Is the faith of man in Buddha or
Mohammed equal in the effect on his soul to the faith in Christ?
As He gave, he that receiveth a prophet in the Name of a prophet
Receives the prophet's reward, or that Ability, that that individual
spiritual force May manifest in the life of that individual. Hence, as each teacher, minister or seer, or prophet, receives that
obeisance as is giving the life from that faith and hope as held by
that as an individual, in the Christ is found that as the advocate
With the Father and the spirit of the Father glorified in him that
approaches through that manner, without that as is approached in the
spiritual activity of any individual. For individuality is last lost, even as man in spirit overcomes
death in the material; even as He overcame death in the material,
and able to put on immortality in a material world, bringing to man
not only of flesh that endowed With the ability to be one With the
Father but magnifying the Father In the individual yet in the
material plane. Hence, as we find, each in their respective spheres are but
stepping-stones to that that may awaken in the individual the
knowledge of the Son in their lives.
For even misery loves company. So does the power of God make for
might in the lives and the experiences of others. For it has been
given that we are as sheep following, following. Then Know the
Author of thy faith and of thy ideals. Then apply same.
Who art thou following? Hath thou chosen the Lamb of God as thy
If so, well done, thou good and faithful servant. These may
be thy benediction, if thou hast chosen such and dost keep in the
way that He has pointed out. Not some great deed, not some great
feat, not some great yielded influence; but rather as the little
leaven that leaveneth the whole lump.
For it is line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there
a little. Ye Are in eternity.
What will ye do with the Lamb of God?
Will ye offer Him again upon the altar of thine own selfishness, or
will ye in mercy, in harmony, in peace, be as one with Him; that ye
For He is the good shepherd, and He understandeth the needs of His
sheep, and ye know His Voice. Have ye listened to the still small
voice within? For it warneth thee, it will direct thee, if ye will
Why do I have a leaning more towards Christianity than Judaism?
Hast thou not tried both? Hast thou not found that the Essence, the
truth, the Real truth is One? Mercy and justice; peace and harmony.
For without Moses and his leader Joshua (that was bodily Jesus)
there Is no Christ. Christ is not a man! Jesus was the man; Christ
the messenger; Christ in all ages, Jesus in one, Joshua in another,
Melchizedek in another; These be those that led Judaism! These be
they that came as that child of promise, as to the children of
promise; and the promise is in thee, that ye lead as He has given
thee: "Feed my sheep."
Understandings of what is known as Mohammed or Allah
Give rather the greater expression of the oneness of the individual
activity, than following any individual that had set self as a lord
or master or director over another. What an individual sows, that it reaps.
That that a man worships, That that man becomes.
In relation to what?
chosen in the experience as the ideal of the individual, And the
relationship such knowledge or such an ideal has to the First Cause
or Premise or God; according to how true, or how well in keeping
with those ideals, one applies self. Each entity must answer for its
Own choosing, as well as for those it, as an entity, has persuaded
or prompted in certain directions. For, it is true, physically,
mentally or spiritually, that if the blind lead the blind, Both will
fall into the ditch.
Mohammedanism, Confucianism, Shintoism, Brahmanism, Platoism,
Christ the entity, as an entity, influenced either directly or
indirectly all those forms of philosophy or religious thought that
taught God was One. In the first, as one that associated with, in
the meditation or spirit of, that one guiding same, and those things
that have been added to are much in the same manner that was added
to in Judaism. Whether in Buddhism, Mohammedanism, Confucianism,
Platoism, or what, these have been added to much from that as was
given by Jesus in His walk in Galilee and Judea. In all of these,
then, there is that same impelling spirit. What individuals have
done, do do, To the principles or the spirit of same, in turning
this aside to meet their Own immediate needs in material planes, or
places has made for that as becomes an outstanding thing, as a
moralist or the head of any independent religious force or power;
for, as has been given, "Know, O Israel, the Lord thy God is One!"
whether this is directing one of the Confucius thought, Brahman
thought, Buddha thought, Mohammedan thought; these are as teachers
or representatives, or to make more of the distinct change, as was
in that as given by the apostle to the gentiles: "I hear there are
divisions among you. Some say I am Paul, another I am Apollos,
another I am of Caiaphas. Paul may minister, Apollos may have
watered, but it's God that gives the increase!" The Spirit of the
Creative Force, and as such the Son represented in the spirit in
that as was made manifest in the earth. Not as Only one, but The
only one; for, as He gave: "He that climbs up any other way is a
thief and a robber."
As the Spirit of the Master, the Spirit of the Son, was manifest, as
was given, to each in their respective sphere. As it is today. As it
was of yore. God calls on man everywhere to seek His face, through
that channel that may be blessed by the Spirit of the Son, in
whatever sphere this may take its form. Because there are
contentions, because there is the lack of the giving and taking as
to others thought, does not change God's attitude one whit; neither
does it make one above another; for, as has been given, there Is
Only one, the others are as those acting in the capacity of the
thought that was given to them through that same power, that "In the
last days has He spoken unto us through the Son, as one born out of
due season." We find the same contentions arising in that called in
the present denominationalism, and each one crying, "Lo, here is
Christ, Lo, this is the manner of approach, Lo, unless ye do this or
that ye have no part in Him." "He that loves me will keep my
commandments." What are the commandments? "Thou shalt have no other
God before me", and "Love thy neighbour as thyself." In this is
builded the whole Law and gospel of every age that has said: "There
is One God!"
How may we have the mind of
As we open our hearts, our minds, our souls, that we may be a
channel of blessings to others, so we have the mind of the Christ,
who took upon Himself the burden of the world. So may we, in our Own
little sphere, take upon ourselves the burdens of the world. The
Joy, the Peace, the Happiness, that may be ours is in Doing for the
Other fellow. For, gaining an understanding of the laws as pertain
to right living in all its phases makes the mind in attune with
Creative Forces, which Are of His consciousness. So we may have That
consciousness, by putting into action That we know.
The Love of Christ, Who Is God
Know His love is sufficient to keep thee. No matter what may be the
trial, His love abideth, and He is Not unmindful of thy prayers.
Christ is In thee when ye Are (in thy living, in thy thinking, in
thy acting) One with Him.
“The Birth of Christ you won't
understand before and you won't get the understanding of it until
you have taken up inside the knowledge, that you know what this your
own birth means to you, and what it means to your earthly life. I
say it once more very clearly, that you come to self-knowledge, that
you know of yourself not one thing, but the right thing, what you
are in real and in truth.
Then you will remember, really prepare for the holy celebration for
the real redeemer you will prepare for so that until that day you
will be worthy to receive the holy sacrament All the Good that God
has meant for you, that you will receive it! But you can't serve two
masters, on one hand evil and on the other hand God!
and between all you are a hypocrite and a cheater, you are not even
honest to yourself. This all, my dear friends, you have to let go,
all of that, I repeat it once more everything, what you have felt as
evil in your life you have to put entirely aside. You have to turn
your back to evil! You have to follow a different path therefore I
call you to the Great Turnaround.
Follow the path as it is meant for you by God, and for us all, as it
is destined through Christ! What do we humans have to do? what kind
of teaching is that? the teaching of Christ? Is it all, when human
proclaims by himself. “I am a Christian!” Is that all? don't we have
to put it into action, as Christ said: “Follow me!”. Follow can only
the one, who detaches from all material and doesn't cling on earthly
things but who cling on that one, to the one, to whom he feels
attracted, to whom he belongs.
Only this person can follow God. He can, and he will through the
teaching of Christ become that person, to whom God has meant him.
There is no back and forth, no now and then. And Christ himself has
given us the good, the best and the only advice which we humans, all
humans have to follow, and if you really want to follow now that you
don't demand something but really achieve Everything what is meant
for you! Then you will feel much good on yourself, much good on your
own body, also experience much good on the body of your next human.
I'm not a speaker, I'm no narrator. I'm just someone who tells
people about that I am convinced of but at first I have to be
convinced on my own and to be convinced of the One I belong to, to
be convinced of the One, who has sent me here who has given me an
earthly life and I have to be conscious about my mission about my
vocation. I don't have to be indifferent, I don't have to listen to
people, I have to keep listen to GOD, and I will keep doing that, I
don't need to promise you. I don't owe you an account, you have to
owe your own account. But I just do it.” - Bruno Gröning (Ananias)
Ego sum Via, Veritas et Lux
"I am the way, the truth and the
light. No man cometh unto the Father but by me, and
whatsoever thou asketh in my name, that will the Father give unto
thee." - John 14:6
Know that in Him is
the light that will shine to the inmost recesses of thine heart,
thine consciousness; yea, thy mind and thine soul will rejoice in
the Lord. He will do thee good.
"Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom
of heaven, but to them it is not given." - Matthew 13:11
"Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God:
but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and
hearing they might not understand." - Luck 8:10
"If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up
his cross, and follow me." - Mathew 16:24
"If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up
his cross daily, and follow me." - Luck 9:23
"Condemn no one. Love all. Do good. And ye may experience it all." For hath He not given, and His
promises are sure: “Believe in me, abide in me, and I will bring to
thine remembrance All necessary that Ye May Know the way”? His words
are True! Hold Fast to that thou hast set in thine Heart as
concerning Him. For He has promised to come to thee, to all who
seek. He, the only begotten of the
Father, the Christ, has become the Way, the Light, the Truth, the
Water, the Bread, the Vine! and all of those are Of Him who become
channels for manifesting, or through which there may be those
expressions that are of love and faith and hope! Man through all
periods has with one voice blessed God and with the same cursed his
brother. This should not be! Yet it is such in the world today that
is bringing the seeking for might and power. As to the manners in
which the entity applies those influences which it attained or
gained through the periods when it again announced to the children
of men the great and mighty day of the Lord being at hand, ye are
coming to the realization that the fulfilling of that promise in Him
is Today; for He Is the Way, the Truth and the Light! It is no
longer, then, afar off; but lo, it is within the heart and mind of
each soul, Everywhere! For, whosoever Will may take of the cup of
life, and drink, in such measures that the thirsting is no more for
those things that put fear and dread into the hearts of the children
of men. For it is neither in this temple, that city, nor the other
land, but in thine own heart, in thine own mind. Keep, then, to that
same hope and faith, that ye expect others to have in thee, in thy
fellow man; looking to Him who is the author and the finisher of
faith. For, know that Jesus, as the Christ, is the power of God unto
salvation to All that believe and trust in Him. The making of the
will of self one with His will makes a whole attunement with Him.
Know that He, thy Brother, thy Saviour, thy Christ, has been and is
the Way to the Father in this material plane.
“The Christian principle is a
joyous, abundant, happy, hopeful life in all phases of its
experience, of its expression. And it only meets sorrow,
disappointment and such with that assurance of peace and hope and
life abundant. For, true Christian principle is a life of Practical
application of brotherly love, and in the application of the fruits
of the spirit of truth; long suffering, kindness, gentleness,
patience. Against these there is no law; they Are the law, love and
life. Be thou strong in the purposes of thy life. Ye are in the
material plane, yea - but unless the house that ye build is founded
upon the spirit of truth it is as the house builded upon the sand.
Then, fortify thyself in being oft in prayer, of coming close to the
loving arms of thy Saviour and of thy God. For he that oft draws
nigh will not wander far afield. Let, then, thy purposes be founded
in justice, in mercy, in honour; in preference of thy fellow man to
thine own self, in the love of thy neighbour to that of exalting
thyself at the expense of thy neighbour. For as the understanding of
love comes in thine own experience, so may the joy of the service to
thy fellow man become the greater Christian Principle in thy life.
Keep the faith. Walk in the light. Let no darkness be in thee at
all. For He Is the light, the truth and the way, and He is willing -
if thou wilt but walk with Him. Let thy life, that has troubled thee
oft, be rather that: “Lord, use me as Thou seest fit. Let Thy
ways, O Lord, be my ways. Let my ways seek to know that Thou wouldst
have me do day by day. For only in Thee may there come the peace,
the harmony, that makes life become worth while in the experience of
any soul.” Keep, then, that gentleness of manner. Keep that sureness
of purpose in Him. For the day cometh when no man may work; only
must ye see what thou hast builded with thine opportunities in the
land of choice. Be thou Strong in thy might in thy youth, that when
the evil days come they will not be as troubled waters but that ye
may save those who are weak.
In Seeking Spiritual
And How is the Manner in which the Laws Concerning same May be
Applied in the Daily Experience of Each
There are those activities set that
are without and within. The mind of the body, in its meditations, in
its seeking, is acted upon both by that from within and that from
without. And the free will or choice is that which makes for the
difference between those that have become aware of their soul and
its relationship to the Maker.
In the application then to the material life, know:
1. As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
2. With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
It is read:
“Father, glorify Thou me that I may be glorified before those Thou
hast given me, that They may be glorified in me.” - John 17:5
As ye then forgive those who trespass, who speak evil, who are
ungentle, who are unkind, so may the Father forgive thee when thou
art wayward, when Thou art headstrong and seek His face. These are
the laws. These are unchangeable. For He hath made thee a little
lower than the angels, yet at no time hath He said to the angel:
"Sit thou on my right side."
Then, if thou wouldst know what may be the understanding heart, just
be kind, just be patient, just be lovely, just be friendly to thy
Forgive those that speak lightly or unkindly, or who even in
premeditated manner do thee evil. For if ye forgive not these, how
can thy heavenly Father forgive thee?
How I may prepare myself for the work I came in this plane to do?
Study at all times to show thyself approved unto that thou hast set
as Thy ideal, in the spiritual plane. Do All things for conscience
sake, that ye may never find cause to condemn thine own self. Put
thine trust, thine understanding, thine self, into the hands of the
Merciful Father. And as ye would have Mercy from Him, Show mercy to
those thou dost contact day by day. Let not thy right hand know what
thy left hand doeth, when thou givest honour to thy fellow man; but
rather in humbleness of heart, in highness of look, looking high, to
Him who has promised that: “As ye ask in my name, believing, so may
the Father give unto thee the desire of thy heart that is made in
oneness of purpose with that thou hast set as thine ideal”, ye may
grow in grace, in knowledge, in understanding. For knowledge is not
merely words but rather that ye Do to thy fellow man day by day. For
By such shall Ye be judged. For By such may ye fulfil that whereunto
thou hast been called. Faint not because trials, tribulations,
assail thee. For ye must be tempted in all points even as He.
Ye Cannot bear the burden alone,
but He hath said:
“Put thy yoke upon me, Look to me.”
- Matthew 11:29
And in faith it is counted for righteousness to those that love the
Lord. Be not thou Directed save by the spirit of the Christ that Is
thy heritage. Faint not. Be not overcome. Letting thy Master, thy
God, be thy director ever. Woe to he that would harken to the voice
that would turn thee aside. For as the prophet of old has said, if
even an angel of light proclaims other than that which thy Saviour
has given have none of it! In thy meditations, then, grow in thy
closeness with Him. For He, thy Saviour, is nigh unto thee - ever;
for, as has been promised of old; Though ye wander far afield,
though ye be troubled - yea, perplexed by those disturbing forces
that would use thee, thy body, thy hand, thy mind, if ye will turn
rather and look to Him who has given: “Fear not. Be not afraid; it
He is able to keep that thou committest unto Him in thy prayer, thy
meditations. A seeing of the Christ. For He is ever new. He is the
Alpha and Omega, the bright and morning star; He is the water of
life and they that take thereof shall not thirst, neither shall they
weary. When they weary of the Christ, too bad! The acting upon, the
acting without, the choice is the awareness of your own growth, your
own soul. Choose ye. For today, now, is set before thee light and
darkness, day and night, good and evil; choose thou. For each must
give an account unto the Father Within Self! Not in some far
country! The account must be given for the deeds, the thoughts, done
in the body. For He is nearer unto thee than thy hand; He is
closer than thine own feet. Study to show thyself approved unto God,
rightly divining the words of truth, keeping self unspotted from the
world. Though the world hate thee, be not Of the world. Though
things, conditions, appearances, may grow as to be red, dark, black
- if thine heart, thine soul is founded in Him, the Dawn shall come!
Be ye joyous in the Lord, in thy services day by day.
Then, be Happy! Be Joyous! For those that rejoice with Him shall be
glad in their service for Him and for their fellow man. Let not
those things that Disturb thee at times cause thee to fear. For thou
Knowest in thine own heart that He, thy Saviour, is nigh unto thee.
Not in self-glory, then, but rather in praise for the joy that comes
to thee in thine inner understanding.
Then, be patient; be kind, be gentle with others. Not as feeling
sorry, not as of pity, but rather as of loving sympathy that ye may
ever Find thine own inner conscience at-one with thy ideal. For
every idle word, every harsh answer, must be met by thyself. Stand
ye, then, in thine own meditation and watch yourself pass by. For ye
are called unto a service that will bring harmony and peace in thine
own experience, if ye will but partake With Him. Let the love
of the Father constrain thee, day by day. Let thy going in, thine
coming out, be in harmony with: “My peace I give you, my joy I leave
For: “I will be thy God, if thou wilt but be my people.” Let not the
gentleness of purpose that is thine mien be overcome by
self-exaltation, but rather in that manner as He gave: “Love ye one
another.” The beauty of thy life, of thy service, is precious in His
sight. As the ways come and go in thine experience that bring to
thee the understanding as to the meeting and applying of those
things pertaining to the material life, so is there the growth in
the spiritual life that gives the purposefulness in all the
activities in a material experience. For ye Grow in grace, in
knowledge and in understanding as ye make application, as ye
Practice what ye would preach in thine daily life. Thy life, thy
heart, thy body, thy mind; keep them one with Him. Thy body is the
temple where ye may meet the living God, in thy trust, in thy faith
in Him. For He has promised, and His promises are sure: “As ye
call upon me I will Hear; and will answer according to that Thou
hast done in thy body towards thy fellow man.”
If ye would have friends, be friendly! If ye would have others be
kind to thee, be kind to them! If ye would know thy Maker, then in
gentleness of heart and in sureness of purpose live each day that ye
may look to Him and say: “Thy will, O God, be done in me; Not my
will but Thy will!”
As the strength in thee grow with the applications of that thou hast
found good in Him, so the way grows bright. Then, keep the Lord ever
before thee as the light to thy path as the way opens before thee.
For He Is the good shepherd, and He calleth His own by name. Let the
words of thy mouth, the activities of thy hands, the meditations of
thy heart, Ever be such that they may be as but sweet incense before
the throne of mercy. For those that love the Lord find joy and make
for righteousness in the hearts and minds of those that they meet
day by day. Keep the faith. Love the Lord. For He draweth nigh unto
thee. Come! Make thine own heart one with Him! Sing that new song of
the Lamb which makes for the peace, harmony, joy, that comes with
just being Patient, just being Kind, one to another. Let the Lord be
thy guide. As ye draw near to Him, He will draw near to thee. Much
thou may accomplish in thine purposes, if ye will keep in the way.
For: “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.” Love the Lord and His people;
for: “As ye do it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it
The Work of the Hospitallers Order of the Good News
"And said, Verily I say unto you, Lest ye become as little children
ye will in no wise enter in the kingdom of heaven."
- Matthew 18:3
"Verily I say unto you, Whosoever
shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not
enter therein." - Mark 10:15
Unless you can be just as forgiving, unless you can find it just as
easy to forget slights and slurs and things that would make afraid
those who would judge others. For with what measure ye mete, it is
measured to thee again. Even as He, the Master gave, the faults ye
find in others are reflected in thine own mirror of life. And as He
gave, "Cast the beam out of thine eye that ye may see to take the
mote from thy brother's eye." Keep in that faith as of the first
lesson, become as a little child, if ye will be able to be of
greater service to others. And unless we All become as little
children, lest we all come with the desire, even though there be
scorn upon the face, the actions, of many; yet that desire, that
love, for those conditions that bring the full concept of the
Fatherhood of God is that redeeming force as is manifest in the
world. "The children lead where the old dare not follow", for unto
him there has been given that message that will reach to those that,
to the world, to the theologian as of the present day, will mean the
new lesson, the new light, to the young in many places, for that
innate desire of the love of the Father is in all.
Let this be in thy minds, thy hearts and thy lives, as ye go about
preparing that as will be thy contribution to this lesson which will
go to many. For, as given, the time will come when these things
written here ye many may study again; and will be as Bibles are to
many in the present.
But let thy light so shine among thine own
associates day by day, that ye are indeed Not Ashamed to speak that
thou hast heard in the manner of thy living, in the same breath with
that ye do and say to thy fellow man.
Books & Manuscripts
Read this books and make them the
experience of self! for, as has been given, the ones He has called
are those who have Opened their hearts that He May enter in, and the
Christ, the God, must become the saviour, the brother, the father,
to that soul - that He may be their very own; for he that would seek
Him must believe that He is, and Seek to know Him as their Personal
Father, their Personal Saviour, their Personal associate in the
inner self, the spiritual self the soul is awakened, and one becomes
conscious of it in the patience that may be manifested in this
Oft has it been said, as of old, Not in the storm, not in the
earthquake, not in that of anything outside of Self may God be found
by man; for to ascend into heaven or to descend into hell He is
there, in thine own heart! The kingdom is within.
When self closes the door to the heart, to the attributes of the
Father, the Son, self Alone separates self from that knowledge, that
power of His love, His attributes, His faith, His knowledge and
power in the earth; "for I am persuaded, neither powers without nor
trials, nor tribulations, may Separate my soul from its Maker."
Only self, made one With His power, denying that He is existent
within self, Separates self from the Maker.
More time must be given to the study of the Holy Word, and more
expression of self must be spent in manifesting those truths before
men. Physically and materially, little may be done to assist the
body physically, unless it wills itself to do such.
Rectified King James Bible
Sovereign Hospitallers Order Civil and Military of
the Good News,
through the Manuscripts,
Documents and Records Contained and Preserved in its Central Archives
World Library, has produced a
Rectified King James Bible of the translation of the Texts contained in the King James Bible,
this being in the English Language the translation of Scripture the
one which is closest to the original expression of the text.
Those phrases, paragraphs which where rectified, by that which was
given by Him and through Him, these rectified sections are indicated
and placed in "bold" in the text of the Rectified King James
Bible. The sections of wording, are thus the correction to the text
to that which was actually given, to that which was said, thus its
reading will but bring better comprehension and understanding of the
written word of Him who Is the Saviours the Prince of Peace, the One
who we await and shall come. It is remarkable that the texts in the Bible for more than 2,000
years, it remains faithful to the original message given. It is
indeed only very few wordings, words and sentences, minute but of
interest that the version of the Order of the Good News, is
published under the
title of Rectified King James Bible. The text was rectified, where
needed, in extremely few passages, in order to reflect the correct wording
as that which is kept, preserved and found in the Central Archives of the the Hospitallers

With a Preface; Composed by King-Tsing,
A Priest of the Syrian Church
the unchangeably true and invisible, who existed through all
eternity without origin; the far-seeing perfect intelligence,
whose mysterious existence is everlasting; operating on
primordial substance he created the universe, being more
excellent than all holy intelligences, inasmuch as he is the
source of all that is honourable.
This is our eternal true Lord
God, triune and mysterious in substance.
He appointed the cross as the
means for determining the four cardinal points, he moved the
original spirit, and produced the two principles of nature; the
sombre void was changed, and heaven and earth were opened out;
the sun and moon revolved, and day and night commenced; having
perfected all inferior objects, he then made the first man; upon
him he bestowed an excellent disposition, giving him in charge
the government of all created beings; man, acting out the
original principles of his nature, was pure and unostentatious;
his unsullied and expansive mind was free from the least
inordinate desire; until Satan introduced the seeds of
falsehood, to deteriorate his purity of principle; the opening
thus commenced in his virtue gradually enlarged, and by this
crevice in his nature was obscured and rendered vicious; hence
three hundred and sixty-five sects followed each other in
continuous track, inventing every species of doctrinal
complexity; while some pointed to material objects as the source
of their faith, others reduced all to vacancy, even to the
annihilation of the two primeval principles; some sought to call
down blessings by prayers and supplications, while others by an
assumption of excellence held themselves up as superior to their
thoughts continually wavering, their minds and affections
incessantly on the move, they never obtained their vast desires,
but being exhausted and distressed they revolved in their own
heated atmosphere; till by an accumulation of obscurity they
lost their path, and after long groping in darkness they were
unable to return.
Thereupon, our Trinity being
divided in nature, the illustrious and honorable Messiah,
veiling his true dignity, appeared in the world as a man;
angelic powers promulgated the glad tidings, a virgin gave birth
to the Holy One in Syria; a bright star announced the felicitous
event, and Persians
observing the splendor came to present tribute; the ancient
dispensation, as declared by the 24 holy men,
was then fulfilled, and he laid down great principles for the
government of families and kingdoms; he established the new
religion of the silent operation of the pure spirit of the
Triune; he rendered virtue subservient to direct faith; he fixed
the extent of the eight boundaries,
thus completing the truth and freeing it from dross; he opened
the gate of the three constant principles,
introducing life and destroying death; he suspended the bright
sun to invade the chambers of darkness, and the falsehoods of
the devil were thereupon defeated; he set in motion the vessel
of mercy by which to ascend to the bright mansions, whereupon
rational beings were then released, having thus completed the
manifestation of his power, in clear day he ascended to his true

have been left, which disseminate intelligence by unfolding the
original transforming principles. By the rule for admission, it
is the custom to apply the water of baptism, to wash away all
superficial show and to cleanse and purify the neophytes.

As they strike the wood, the
fame of their benevolence is diffused abroad; worshiping toward
the east, they hasten on the way to life and glory; they
preserve the beard to symbolize their outward actions, they
shave the crown to
indicate the absence
of inward affections; they do not keep slaves, but put noble and
mean all on an equality; they do not amass wealth, but cast all
their property into the common stock; they fast, in order to
perfect themselves by self-inspection; they submit to
restraints, in order to strengthen themselves by silent
watchfulness; seven times a day they have worship and praise for
the benefit of the living and the dead; once in 7 days they
sacrifice, to cleanse the heart and return to purity.
It is difficult to find a name
to express the excellence of the true and unchangeable doctrine;
but as its meritorious operations are manifestly displayed, by
accommodation it is named the Illustrious Religion. Now without
holy men, principles cannot become expanded; without principles,
holy men cannot become magnified; but with holy men and right
principles, united as the two parts of a signet, the world
becomes civilized and enlightened.
In the time of the accomplished
Emperor Taitsung, the illustrious and magnificent founder of the
dynasty, among the enlightened and holy men who arrived was the
Most-virtuous Olopun, from the country of Syria. Observing the
azure clouds, he bore the true sacred books; beholding the
direction of the winds, he braved difficulties and dangers.
In the year A.D. 635 he arrived
at Chang-an; the Emperor sent his Prime Minister, Duke Fang
Hiuen-ling; who, carrying the official staff to the west border,
conducted his guest into the interior; the sacred books were
translated in the imperial library, the sovereign investigated
the subject in his private apartments; when becoming deeply
impressed with the rectitude and truth of the religion, he gave
special orders for its dissemination. In the seventh month of
the year A.D. 638 the following imperial proclamation was
"Right principles have no
invariable name, holy men have no invariable station;
instruction is established in accordance with the locality, with
the object of benefiting the people at large. The
Greatly-virtuous Olopun, of the kingdom of Syria, has brought
his sacred books and images from that distant part, and has
presented them at our chief capital. Having examined the
principles of this religion, we find them to be purely excellent
and natural; investigating its originating source, we find it
has taken its rise from the establishment of important truths;
its ritual is free from perplexing expressions, its principles
will survive when the framework is forgot; it is beneficial to
all creatures; it is advantageous to mankind. Let it be
published throughout the Empire, and let the proper authority
build a Syrian church in the capital in the I-ning May, which
be governed by
twenty-one priests. When the virtue of the Chau dynasty
declined, the rider on the azure ox ascended to the west; the
principles of the great Tang becoming resplendent, the
Illustrious breezes have come to fan the East."
Orders were then issued to the
authorities to have a true portrait of the Emperor taken; when
it was transferred to the wall of the church, the dazzling
splendor of the celestial visage irradiated the Illustrious
portals. The sacred traces emitted a felicitous influence, and
shed a perpetual splendor over the holy precincts.
According to the Illustrated
Memoir of the Western Regions, and the historical books of the
Han and Wei dynasties, the kingdom of Syria reaches south to the
Coral Sea; on the north it joins the Gem Mountains; on the west
it extends toward the borders of the immortals and the flowery
forests; on the east it lies open to the violent winds and
tideless waters. The country produces fire-proof cloth,
life-restoring incense, bright moon-pearls, and night-lustre
gems. Brigands and robbers are unknown, but the people enjoy
happiness and peace. None but Illustrious laws prevail; none but
the virtuous are raised to sovereign power. The land is broad
and ample, and its literary productions are perspicuous and
The Emperor Kautsung
respectfully succeeded his ancestor, and was still more
beneficent toward the institution of truth. In every province he
caused Illustrious churches to be erected, and ratified the
honor conferred upon Olopun, making him the great conservator of
doctrine for the preservation of the State.
While this doctrine pervaded
every channel, the State became enriched and tranquility
abounded. Every city was full of churches, and the royal family
enjoyed lustre and happiness. In the year A. D. 699 the
Buddhists, gaining power, raised their voices in the eastern
the year A. D. 713, some low fellows excited ridicule and spread
slanders in the western capital. At that time there was the
chief priest Lo-han, the Greatly-virtuous Kie-leih, and others
of noble estate from the golden regions, lofty-minded priests,
having abandoned all worldly interests; who unitedly maintained
the grand principles and preserved them entire to the end.
The high-principled Emperor
Hiuentsung caused the Prince of Ning and others, five princes in
all, personally to visit the felicitous edifice; he established
the place of worship; he restored the consecrated
timbers which had been temporarily thrown down; and re-erected
the sacred stones which for a time had been desecrated.
In 742 orders were given to the
great general Kau Lih-sz', to send the 5 sacred portraits and
have them placed in the church, and a gift of a hundred pieces
of silk accompanied these pictures of intelligence. Although the
dragon's beard was then remote, their bows and swords were still
within reach; while the solar horns sent forth their rays, and
celestial visages seemed close at hand.
In 744 the priest Kih-ho, in
the kingdom of Syria, looking toward the star (of China), was
attracted by its transforming influence, and observing the sun
(i.e., Emperor), came to pay court to the most honourable. The
Emperor commanded the priest Lo-han, the priest Pu-lun, and
others, seven in all, together with the Greatly-virtuous Kih-ho,
to perform a service of merit in the Hing-king palace. Thereupon
the Emperor composed mottoes for the sides of the church, and
the tablets were graced with the royal inscriptions; the
accumulated gems emitted their effulgence, while their sparkling
brightness vied with the ruby clouds; the transcripts of
intelligence suspended in the void shot forth their rays as
reflected by the sun; the bountiful gifts exceeded the height of
the southern hills; the bedewing favours were deep as the
eastern sea. Nothing is beyond the range of the right principle,
and what is permissible may be identified; nothing is beyond the
power of the holy man, and that which is practicable may be
The accomplished and
enlightened Emperor Suhtsung rebuilt the Illustrious churches in
Ling-wu and four other places; great benefits were conferred,
and felicity began to increase; great munificence was displayed,
and the imperial State became established.
The accomplished and military
Emperor Taitsung magnified the sacred succession, and honored
the latent principle of nature; always, on the incarnation-day,
he bestowed celestial incense, and ordered the performance of a
service of merit; he distributed of the imperial viands, in
order to shed a glory on the Illustrious Congregation. Heaven is
munificent in the dissemination of blessings, whereby the
benefits of life are extended; the holy man embodies the
original principle of virtue, whence he is able to counteract
Our sacred and sage-like,
accomplished and military Emperor Kienchung appointed the eight
branches of government, according
to which he advanced
or degraded the intelligent and dull; he opened up the nine
categories, by means of which he renovated the illustrious
decrees; his transforming influence pervaded the most abstruse
principles, while openness of heart distinguished his devotions.
Thus, by correct and enlarged purity of principle, and
undeviating consistency in sympathy with others; by extended
commiseration rescuing multitudes from misery, while
disseminating blessings on all around, the cultivation of our
doctrine gained a grand basis, and by gradual advances its
influence was diffused.
If the winds and rains are
seasonable, the world will be at rest; men will be guided by
principle, inferior objects will be pure; the living will be at
ease, and the dead will rejoice; the thoughts will produce their
appropriate response, the affections will be free, and the eyes
will be sincere; such is the laudable condition which we of the
Illustrious Religion are labouring to attain.
Our great benefactor, the
I-sz', titular Great Statesman of the Banqueting-house,
Associated Secondary Military Commissioner for the Northern
Region, and Examination-palace Overseer, was naturally mild and
graciously disposed; his mind susceptible of sound doctrine, he
was diligent in the performance: from the distant city of
came to visit China; his principles more lofty than those of the
three dynasties, his practice was perfect in every department;
at first he applied himself to duties pertaining to the palace,
eventually his name was inscribed on the military roll.
When the Duke Koh Tsz'-í,
Secondary Minister of State and Prince of Făn-yang, at first
conducted the military in the northern region, the Emperor
Suhtsung made him (I-sz') his attendant on his travels; although
he was a private chamberlain, he assumed no distinction on the
march; he was as claws and teeth to the duke, and in rousing the
military he was as ears and eyes; he distributed the wealth
conferred upon him, not accumulating treasure for his private
use; he made offerings of the jewellery which had been given by
imperial favour, he spread out a golden
carpet for devotion;
now he repaired the old churches, anon he increased the number
of religious establishments; he honoured and decorated the
various edifices, till they resembled the plumage of the
pheasant in its flight; moreover, practising the discipline of
the Illustrious Religion, he distributed his riches in deeds of
benevolence; every year he assembled those in the sacred office
from four churches, and respectfully engaged them for 50 days in
purification and preparation; the naked came and were clothed;
the sick were attended to and restored; the dead were buried in
repose; even among the most pure and self-denying of the
Buddhists, such excellence was never heard of; the white-clad
members of the Illustrious Congregation, now considering these
men, have desired to engrave a broad tablet, in order to set
forth a eulogy of their magnanimous deeds.
The true Lord is without
Profound, invisible, and unchangeable;
With power and capacity to perfect and transform,
He raised up the earth and established the heavens.
Divided in nature, he entered the world,
To save and to help without bounds;
The sun arose, and darkness was dispelled,
All bearing witness to his true original.
The glorious and resplendent, accomplished Emperor,
Whose principles embraced those of preceding monarchs,
Taking advantage of the occasion, suppressed turbulence;
Heaven was spread out and the earth was enlarged.
When the pure, bright Illustrious Religion
Was introduced to our Tang dynasty,
The Scriptures were translated, and churches built,
And the vessel set in motion for the living and the
Every kind of blessing was then obtained,
And all the kingdoms enjoyed a state of peace.
When Kautsung succeeded to his ancestral estate.
He rebuilt the edifices of purity;
Palaces of concord, large and light,
Covered the length and breadth of the land.
The true doctrine was
Overseers of the church were appointed in due form;
The people enjoyed happiness and peace,
While all creatures were exempt from calamity and
When Hiuentsung commenced his sacred career,
He applied himself to the cultivation of truth and
His imperial tablets shot forth their effulgence,
And the celestial writings mutually reflected their
The imperial domain was rich and luxuriant,
While the whole land rendered exalted homage;
Every business was flourishing throughout,
And the people all enjoyed prosperity.
Then came Suhtsung, who commenced anew,
And celestial dignity marked the imperial movements.
Sacred as the moon’s unsullied expanse,
While felicity was wafted like nocturnal gales.
Happiness reverted to the imperial household.
The autumnal influences were long removed;
Ebullitions were allayed, and risings suppressed,
And thus our dynasty was firmly built up.
Taitsung the filial and just
Combined in virtue with heaven and earth;
By his liberal bequests the living were satisfied,
And property formed the channel of imparting succor.
By fragrant mementoes he rewarded the meritorious,
With benevolence he dispensed his donations;
The solar concave appeared in dignity,
And the lunar retreat was decorated to extreme.
When Kienchung succeeded to the throne,
He began the cultivation of intelligent virtue;
His military vigilance extended to the four seas,
And his accomplished purity influenced all lands.
His light penetrated the
secrecies of men,
And to him the diversities of objects were seen as in a
He shed a vivifying influence through the whole realm of
And all outer nations took him for example.
The true doctrine how
Its responses are minute;
How difficult to name it!
To elucidate the three in one.
The sovereign has the power to act!
While the ministers record;
We raise this noble monument!
To the praise of great felicity.
This was erected in the 2d year
of Kienchung, of the Tang dynasty (A.D. 781), on the 7th day of
the 1st month, being Sunday.

1. Po-sz', "Persians." This
name was well known to the Chinese at that time, being the
designation of an extensive sect then located in the Empire, and the
name of a nation with which they had held commercial and political
intercourse for several centuries. The statement here is in
admirable harmony with the general tradition of the early Church,
that the Magi or wise men mentioned in Matthew's Gospel were no
other than philosophers of the Parsee sect.
2. The "holy men" denote the
writers of the books of the Old Testament.
3. The "eight boundaries" are inexplicable; some refer them to the

6. "Eastern metropolis" is Tung Chau, literally "Eastern Chau." The
Empire was at this time under the government of the Empress Wu
Tsih-tien, who had removed her residence from Chang-an [Sian-fu] to
Lohyang in Honan.

that they seemed to be present, their arms could almost be handled,

military offices in the State during the Tang and preceding
dynasties. Of the three titles here given, the first is merely an
indication of rank, by which the bearer is entitled to a certain
emolument from the State; the second is his title as an officer
actively engaged in the imperial service; and the third is an
honorary title, which gives to the possessor a certain status in the
capital, without any duties or emolument connected therewith.
9. Wang-shih, literally "Royal
residence," which is also the translation of the Sanskrit word
Râjagriha, is the name of a city on the banks of the Ganges, which
occurs in several Buddhist works. As this was one of the most
important of the Buddhist cities in India, it is natural to suppose
that I-sz' was a Buddhist priest.
