The person must come to the understanding and comprehension of the
needs of the individuals. As to How and Why there are the needs that

The Hospitallers Order of the Good News is establishing that which
is Community which is the bases to which will become a Nation build
upon the ideas and ideals of the Brotherhood of Man the the
Fatherhood of God, in a modern version based in the original
Communities of the Essenes.
The Order is establishing the foundations of a Great Nation called
The meaning of Israel is: "The seeker after truth".
Those who put and hold trust in the fact that they, as individuals,
are children of the "Universal Consciousness of God!"
And the greater meaning of the word Israel is: "Those called of God
for a service before the fellow man".
For those who seek are indeed Israel, and Israel indeed is All who
Meaning not those as of the children of Abraham alone, but of every
nation, every tribe, every tongue, Israel of the Lord! That is the
full meaning of Israel. For as He gave: "The heavens and the earth
will pass away, but my word and deed, and kindness and loving
thought, Patience, persistence in the Right, Do Not pass away." They
be the foundation stones upon which generations are builded. They be
the foundation stones upon which nations rise that seek to know God.
What is Christianity
Do you ever find two blades of grass
alike? Ever find two leaves on a tree alike? No. But all are the handiwork of God. So, with individual souls,
with their complexities of activity. And each soul must know itself
to be itself and yet one with God. That's Christianity!
The Order Teaches the Principles of Practical Christianity, or
Practical Religion. Teachings that can be used in a practical way
and manner in all fields of life, that can be applied to all aspects
of life such as work, social life, trade, commerce.
Practical Christian Living
This is a natural tend and trend. Fear not; only know the author of
thy ideals, and keep in that way. And as ye seek to direct him in
the spiritual understanding, ye will be guided. For the spiritual
understanding is first. For, this attained, the mental and material
will be a natural, normal result. Hence not as a cloister activity,
but as practical Christian living. That teach, that direct to thy
son. These abilities are innate, and what each may seek in the
present, and they will have their effect upon future generations.
The Home is the nearest pattern in earth (where there is unity of
purpose in the companionship) to man's relationship to his Maker.
For it is ever creative in purpose from personalities and
individualities coordinated for a cause, an ideal.
For each and every one, each and every nation, is led - even as in
heaven. For that ye see in earth is a Pattern of that in the Mind, as ye well know, and
is as a shadow of spiritual truth, life and light. This is as has been
given. If there is not the acceptance of the closer brotherhood of
man, the love of the neighbour as self, civilization must end.
What have ye done with the knowledge that ye have respecting the
relationships of thy Creator to thy fellow man? and hast thou made
known that ye know of His ways, God's ways, among thy fellows?
Not only an Opportunity but a Place
for a Great deal of Activity
The Order offers not only an opportunity but a place for a great
deal of activity, the individuals Might, if they As individuals
Choose their selves the association from their angles, make it a
very plausible and feasible thing. For its membership in the Order
it requires that there be set an Ideal, and that some effort be made
on the part of each not only to have this outline as a map but
rather as a practical thing or experience In the experience or life
of each individual. For, in so doing this could be made, and would
be made, a success; if each individual were to consider the
proposition as being able to be made a portion of each, with not
only the Idea of its being made a practical financial success but
that there is the necessity on the part of all, not only in theory
but in a practical manner, to apply themselves in a service for
their fellow man. First, then, it is necessary that there be the
expression from each individual indicated for certain specific
activities, to show not only by word but by an experience the
ability or capability of applying and making same practical; not
only from the angle of just "taking what comes", but being able to
so use the ability in such directions, that are so well indicated in
the lives of each, that they Can if they will make the effort. But
this must be known by those that are in charge. For effort on the
part of one is not the whole, but it must be shown to be a
coordinant condition. It is one thing to say yea or nay, and another
thing to act that way! The manner in which individuals approach such
an ideal is that which makes for the mental and material success.
Well-meaning individuals to a service to the Maker, to themselves,
to be seen of their fellow man in any association for help or aid.
So, in the preparation of self or associates, it is necessary for
the individuals to be within themselves able to be all things unto
all men that they may thereby save the more; be able to weep with
those who weep, mourn with those that mourn, be joyous with those
that would rejoice or show forth joy, be happy and long suffering
and kind ever. And in such a surrounding, association or
understanding, Only may such be made to its better, greater success;
holding to that which is good, eschewing evil, not merely winking,
but not by precept only but by the very living and acting may one
enjoin others the more and be of the greater service in such an
undertaking. The Order should such be as a cooperative measure ever.
The Order must be able to be all things to all, that there may be
the greater service. Not as a hospital, not as merely a recreation
place, but rather as Both, combining rather the recruiting of
strength, or the gaining of individuals former service.
As Individuals, As a Group
The group, as individuals, as a group. As each seek in Their way,
through their development, to Cooperate in being of Service to
Others, so are they lifted up. As the consciousness of the Master is
raised in their individual activities, so is the cooperation in a
body as was from the beginning, when the cooperation brought into
being those forces as manifest themselves in this material world.
They each, then, keeping that creative force within themselves in
that direction as makes for the continuity of life, hope, peace,
understanding, so may it be builded in the lives of themselves
first, then in others, as They, in Their way, seek to bring a better
understanding in this material world. Then, as ye are gathered in a
group, let that mind be in you Not of elementals, but of spiritual
forces as may come Through thine efforts if they are made in accord
with His will. Let thy prayer be continually: “Not My Will But Tine, O Lord, Be Done In And Through Me.
Let Me Ever Be A Channel of Blessings, Today, Now, To Those That I
Contact, In Every Way. Let My going In, Mine Coming Out Be In Accord
With That Thou Would Have Me Do, And As The Call Comes: “Here Am I,
Send Me, Use Me!” Be among those who are indeed blessed in the
acceptance of a new order of things, as pertaining to the moral, the
mental or the religious thought. Come, see, hear, and experienced
that being accomplished under many varied phases of activity as
related to the relations of individuals to peoples of other tongue,
of other climes, of other experiences. Embraced same and became
outspoken in its activities, in its relationships. And see these
changes gradually coming about, see those activities of the peoples
and those acceptances by the peoples of the new order and new
changes that make for the establishing of a variation in the
relationships of the individuals to the Creative Forces, as well as
the relationships of each one to another, or as man to man.
How May We Have the Mind of Christ?
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 Lesson of Cooperation
That, that as is given to those that would seek through these
lessons in a Practical religion in action; for as of the practical
things of life, so in the lessons these must be Living words, that
they may touch the hearts, the minds, the souls of others. In thine
ministry, then, see that each line, each thought, is a Practical
thing, Living, having its being, in Him. In the application of that
gained by the study of same, this must be an individual application
of same; in unison, in cooperation, in knowing thyself, in love, in
all that may be gained by those meditations within, and in the study
and reasoning together. These are well. And the applications in
individuals and individual instances make for a mental and spiritual
growth in a group. Well, then, hast thou chosen. Be not weary in thy
well-doing. Let that mind be in each of you that was in Him, who
thought it not robbery to make Himself equal with God, but made
Himself of no estate, that whereby many, whereby man, whereby those
to whom He might become the Saviour, the channel of approach, the
intercessor for those who would approach the Throne of grace; making
law, making rote, making that which would make men afraid, as naught
in the experiences of those (as ye) who put their whole trust in
God. Not, then, in this or that manner, irrespective of the other's
thoughts or feelings, but all studying themselves to show Themselves
approved unto God, rightly divining the words of truth, keeping self
from reproach, reproach of self, reproach of others, and unspotted
from the world. Thus may the group as a group, thus may the
individual members of the group go on in the nurture, the admonition
of the words of truth that are presented by Him, the Author, the
Giver of truth itself. Thus may they hold high the banner of the
Lord their God, their Saviour Jesus, the Christ. In Him, will ye
glory; not in thyself, for He made Himself of no estate. And as He
gave: "I of myself can do nothing." Let each in the group, realize,
practice this in their every activity and thus become aware of the
indwelling of that promise: "If ye love me and keep my commandments
I will come and abide with thee." Thou believest; wilt thou but act
in that manner! Wilt thou be afraid when thou art called? Wilt thou
be even as Peter who cried out in dismay at the storms of life; will
ye cry out at the disappointments in thy daily experience with thy
brother, the unkindnesses and the selfishness shown here and there?
Rather will ye spend thine selves that He, thy Christ, thy Lord, has
not given His life, Himself, made His sacrifice in vain. For if ye
would know the truth, the truth will make you free; free in that ye
know ye abide in Him; ye take no thought of the morrow as to good or
evil, for each day is sufficient unto itself; Living life as He has
directed thee, meeting Him in the temple of thy body. Let each,
then, present their bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto Him; and it is but a reasonable service. For the glorious,
joyous life may be thine indeed if ye will but live, not as mere
tenets, not as mere trite sayings, but as thy life, as thy thought.
For as ye think in thine heart, and ye separate thy Lord from
thyself; wilt thou bid Him come with thee in every word, in every
act, in the associations that thou goest about to do? Would thou
speak unkindly in His presence? Doth His presence abide with thee,
dost thou believe? They that put on Christ find Him nearer even than
the hand. They that would know Him become one with Him. In seeking
as individuals in a cooperative manner to show themselves approved
unto God, workmen that need not be ashamed, rightly divining the
words of truth, should be the purpose, the aim, the desire of each
and every individual that associates or affiliates itself with such
a group. That which may be gained from the study of that prepared as
the thought to lead or guide, is the purpose; that each soul would
find development for itself to become a better channel, a better
servant of the Lord that each seeks to manifest in its individual
life. And as a group, present same in such a cooperative way and
manner as to make for an influence that may induce or lead others to
make Their lives as channels for a greater service in His name. Not
that any individual would be, should be, compelled or sought, other
than they that are called in His name, that they as individuals, as
a group, may show forth the Lord's death till he come again. This
should be the purpose, the aim, the desire. As to how each may
better accomplish this in the experience, it is the development and
the unfoldment of a practical, a manifested, an exemplified life in
the service of the Master. And, as He has given: "A new commandment
give I unto you, that ye love one another", that ye keep that which
is committed unto thee against that day when each must in its own
way present that it has builded in its experience as a service unto
Him that gave: "If ye love me, keep my commandments, and I will come
and abide with thee. I will not leave thee comfortless, but will
give that ye ask in my name, believing, for I go to the Father and
ye that abide in me abide in the Father also."
The Order fosters the ideal of Community living as a way
and manner of sustainable progress of humankind.
The purpose of the collective community living, includes sharing
resources, creating family-oriented neighbourhoods, living
ecologically sustainable lifestyles and cooperate with all its
members in a common goal which is the Christian principles: "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." - John 13:34-35
To us here, as
individuals, we have accepted, we do accept those tenets of the
Nazarene, Jesus of Nazareth, whose whole gospel was combined in that
message: "Ye shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and
mind, and thy neighbour as thyself." And then, as to make this
become a more practical experience in the lives of individuals, He
gave "A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one
That we as individuals may make compatible, then, those
relationships of Creative Forces or God upon the one hand, and the
nature of man in materiality upon the other hand, is the need of
This day, this age. For He Will indeed come again, and woe be unto
him who is found wanting! The Order then its setup in a way and
manner in order to facilitate that which may be accomplished
materially by each one abilities in the present should be used in a
constructive, creative manner, and thus be ever a contributor to the
welfare of whatever community the individual may be a part of, or
group; making those with whom the individual may associate a little
better, thinking and feeling a little bit improved by the knowledge,
the abilities, the activities that may be accomplished in the young
from the abilities latent within each. Community Living is
a group of People,
who live together, share common facilities, and who regularly
associate with each other on the basis of explicit Ideals: "I Am my
brother's keeper!", and common values based upon Tenets of Practical
I Am My
Each soul shall
conduct self as respecting this as an individual organization, it
has oft been given that this is not under any schism or ism or any
individual tenet other than that which has been of old: "I Am my
brother's keeper!" That should be the cry that should be in the
heart of every member, every individual: "I Am my brother's keeper!"
There are those within the activities of the organization, the
membership in same, whose desires or purposes are of such a nature
that there lies within them the power to see that not a wrangle is
kept, but that the ideal side, ideal condition or position would be
kept in the way of those presentations that have been very well
given in cooperative measures with the ideals (or ideas, and the
ideals that go with same) that We Are Our Brother's Keeper; that we
each are dependent one upon another. And no Government, no Nation,
no State, no City, no Family, yes, no Individual, is stronger than
the weakest habit; the destructive forces that may in any way or
manner at any time undermine if they are self-purposing. But if the
ideas and the ideals are rather that each should be, each Will be,
each purposing to be, a channel for presenting brotherly love,
kindness, patience, long suffering, just being kind, and if these
are rather the propaganda, if these are rather the promptings of the
activity in every phase or every association of the individuals, we
will find more and more that there will be drawn the greater dawn of
Every Form of helpfulness, hopefulness, in the experience of an
Individual, a Family, a State, a City, a Nation.
Not that there may not be those things that have been so well
presented as in the days before the flood; they were married, given
in marriage; there were the reckless, there were the saints. As in
those days before the end may come, these may be ever Just the same.
But man being a creative nature, man being endowed with divinity
within self, may work that to his own undoing, or to his own glory
in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit that worketh in and
through those according to that purposed in their hearts.
How can I be of
Help to Others?
In a channel of this nature, give of thy strength of spirit in
making others aware that they, too, may know the Christ as their
personal Saviour in Every need, in every hour. This is done by
living that life first in self and then sending it out in His name
to those that seek through the aid thou, with others, may be in
fulfilling that which is promised by Him: "As ye ask in my name,
believing, that will be done in thy experience that the Father may
be glorified in me and I in you." In this manner may self be of
service in the world, in the group particularly. As a group of
individuals, whose mission it to help in teaching and applying the
tenets and truths of Practical Christianity.
Should I be
Connected with the Work of the Order?
This should depend upon the ideals and choices of the entity as
respecting same. If there is the innate desire for the manifestation
of an ideal as respecting service of the entity to a cause, a
purpose, an ideal, make application. If it is for what may be said,
or for a selfish motive, or for the satisfying of ego alone, do not.
But remember be true to thine own ideal. This should be
chosen by the conclusions of the body-mind itself. By choice. This should ever be by choice. For self in seeking to
help others, not by force, not by might, but as ye find in the work
of the Order that which may be of interest or help to others, that
which is good pass on, not by forcing, not by over-persuasion, but
as the love of the Father and passed of one's own free will. There
must be the response to that within from that without self. The
spirit of the law of love, not the outward expression of same but
the spirit of the law, as interpreted in the life, in the manner in
which He met those day by day. Not that any individual may force
another, then. For, God Himself forces no individual to seek Him,
save by the natural law. It must be free will, that which was given
as the birthright to man, as that which the soul may apply; the true
law of love, not of self, but of Him who giveth all things to all
men. For it is not of self but by the grace, by the mercy, by the
love of and for the fellow man; not that self must be or even may be
exalted in name, in place, in position. For He thought it not
robbery to make Himself equal with God, yet came from God's presence
that others, His brethren might know; that His activities would
offer for man the way. So in the use of thy abilities in ministering
to others as ye may in word, in deed, in humbleness, know it is not
of self but as the gift from the Father. For He having first loved
us, what manner of man should ye be that ye should use, not abuse;
ye should apply not as in the way of honour, or of claiming honour.
For who would be the greatest? Ye who will be the servant of all may
be the greater among thy fellow man. The seeking for an
interpretation of the laws which control life, man's relationships
to the universal aspects as well as man's relationship to the
universal consciousness or God, and as to how same may be made
practical in the daily experiences of individuals. There is the one
approach to the Father through the Son: "who is my mother, my
brother, my sister? he who doeth the will of my Father in heaven, be
he of this or that group." The teachings with the activities as the
one Lord, the one purpose, each soul as an entity, each soul as a
definite purpose in God's relationship to man. And these being
applied in the applications personally to groups of every tribe and
every group. Becoming more and more as a helpful influence in the
establishing of an open activity for those who are sick, the
indigent, the lame, from every tribe. In this activities as more and
more the oneness of the universal consciousness is made aware among
those who seek aid. Help those who are seeking, for as He gave: "I
came but for the lost sheep, not for those who are satisfied." Don't
persuade then, don't induce others, but so live thine own life day
by day that others, seeing thee, may know ye walk and talk with Him,
Christ, who is the way, the truth, the light. Thus bringing greater
interpretations, understanding, humbleness of mind that others might
Put ye on, then, the whole Armour of
God, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sword of the Spirit of
Know in Whom ye have believed, as well
as in what ye believe. Live each day in such a manner as to indicate
to everyone ye meet that thou hast an answer for the faith that
prompts thee to act in this or that manner. Be not discouraged
because the way seems hard at times. Know that He heareth thee. For
as He hath given: "If ye will keep my law", And what is His law? It
is to love the Lord, to eschew evil, which is the whole duty of man,
love thy neighbour as thyself. This brings into the consciousness
that peace which each soul seeks, and brings with same healing, not
only of body but of mind, and keeps the attunement with the spirit
of truth. Know, too, that His spirit, God's spirit, the Father in
the Christ, through the Holy Spirit, beareth witness with thy
spirit. And though there comes periods when there are the
temptations from all manners of sources, Hear Not those that deny
that He hath come in the flesh. Listen to those that bespeak of the
Cross as the way. Harken not in any manner to those who deny the
cross or the cup of bitterness in death. These be the channels,
these be the ways that the blind leading the blind, both fall into
the pit that separateth the soul from that patience, that of
Abraham's bosom. "By faith are ye healed, not of thyself, it is the
gift of God." Let thy prayer oft be: “Lord, I am thine, use He as
thou seest fit, that I may be the greater channel of blessings to
those that thou would, through my effort, bring to thy
understanding. I seek only in the name of the Christ”
Guidance for those who seek
That each may have
the opportunity for joining in a service that may be made as a
criterion for others that would take lessons from same. It's an
opportunity, then, for all. To become a member
of the Order, one must first accept the Christ. The Order does not restrict
membership to any single Christian Church; it is Ecumenical. Membership in the Order requires that each candidate
accept of free will the Teachings of the Christ, and receives
the Baptism in community has a signal of his commitment to
Christ our Lord God the God of Abraham. Membership may be offered after a screening process.
The Order functions as a State, where there is common law, and
common sense. Not common law and senseless, that is what
existed in many countries since the early 1960's up to 2036. This shall be
known, and shall come to be referred to as the time of destruction of Civilization.
The Order aims to sustain civilization, and the memory of the Living
God Who Is Christ and His Teachings Alive for future generations. The principal considerations in accepting members are:
demonstrated good character, willingness to serve humanity,
commitment to the ideals of Christ. The Order invests membership upon only those men and women who
deport themselves in an honourable manner, who will
be committed to the Christian values and precepts.
The Covenant of the Order with its Citizens
If you Love Thy God Christ with all thy heart, and your neighbour as
your self, then the Order Guarantees:
1. A Home, you shall never be homeless.
2. Food, you shall never be with hunger.
3. Community, you will never be alone, with a clear sense of
belonging as a member of the Order a Nation, Israel.
4. Wellbeing and enjoyment of Health.
5. Freedom, it is the birth right of every man and woman, as equals
to be Free, it is the will of Christ who is God that man and woman
be Free, and enjoy Freedom in their daily lives. Freedom of what?
When ye bind men's hearts and minds through various ways and
manners, does it give them freedom of speech? Freedom of worship?
Freedom from want? Not unless those basic principles are applicable
throughout the tenets and lines as has been set, but with that
principle freedom. For God meant man to be free and thus gave man
will, a will even to defy God. God has not willed that any soul
should perish, but hath with every trial or temptation prepared a
way of escape. Those nations who have taken those vows that man
shall be free should also take those vows: "He shall know the truth
and the truth then shall make him free." The truth maketh one free.
Freedom that each man will live for his fellow man! Guided by "In
God We Trust."
6. Security, the Order has its own Security Force, members will
always be secure, progress and civilization cannot exist without
7. Protection, the Order has its own Security Force in order to
assure security and provide protection to the Order a Nation,
A member of the Order is called: Citizen. All Citizens of the Order are received, protected by
the Sovereign Hospitallers Order Civil and Military of
the Good News.
Citizens of the Order know that they will never be alone, they will
never be with hunger, they will never be homeless.

will be my people, I will be your God". Others may do as they may, but for me and my house, we will serve
To All This Is Given
Love God. Eschew evil. Love thy neighbour as thyself. For, as He
gave, "A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another,"
even as the Father hath loved you in giving His Son that ye through
faith, that ye through the love that He has shown, may know the love
of the Father and thus be the greater channel of blessings to those
ye meet day by day. For ye have been called unto a purpose, as into
the service of the Son of man. Make known to Him thy desire, in His
will, and, thy will one with His, there will come to thee many
blessings, physically, mentally, spiritually. Not all, to be sure,
may be drawn at once. As the greater incentive is for each soul to
experience the promise which Is in Him, Ye may of thyself turn
within and know, through thine Own inner self - the assurance of
that promise that ye may know All things since the foundations of
How may one best develop
Through prayer and meditation. Turn ever to Him for as He has given,
practice daily the love of the Christ. For as He gave, "A new
commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another." Then
manifest that in every way. Let everyone that you meet be happier
for having met you, for having spoken to you. This ye can do by
spreading joy. This is the manner to unfold, to develop. Then in thy
meditation, present thyself as a willing channel, to be as the
hands, as the eyes, as the voice of thy Master. To Pursue peace, by
Living the second phase of the divine injunction, "thy neighbour as
Then, today, we are to answer within our individual consciousness,
"Am I my brother's keeper?" Not "What does the world owe me?" but
"What contribution can I, as an individual soul seeking God, seeking
to know His face, make that may hasten the day of the Lord?" For we as individuals, as we look about us, realize more and more
that indeed we are live and move and have our being in Him, and we
are becoming mindful also of "from whence we came." And we realize
that as He has given: "If ye will be my people, I will be thy God"
applies to me, to you, to each soul that has been blessed with the
consciousness, the awareness of life. For Life itself in all its forms and phases is indeed a
manifestation of that we worship as God.
We realize that selfishness, jealousies, those things that make
people afraid must gradually be put away.
First, then, as an individual, self must be conquered. Rather than
raising thy voice, then, that Ye may be heard, raise thy voice that
He, thy God, may be heard! Who, then, is thy God? Is it thyself, thy body, thy ego? Rather
look, then, to Him who is able to keep you from falling, but is able
to keep you in strength of His might by thy desire, by purpose, thy
aims being: "Others, Lord! Others!" For, as has been given
by Him, "Other sheep I have that are not of this fold," for
they were on their journey that they, too, might come and hear His
voice, from His children and His brethren that would make known His
ways. What, ye ask again, are His ways? Just being kind, just being
patient, just that as He gave: "A new commandment I give unto you,
that ye love one another, that ye love thy neighbour as thyself,
that Thou would stand in thy neighbour's stead. Not to everyone that saith Lord, Lord, shall be called, but he that doeth the will of the
Father." So in thine judgements, in the associations, he that doeth
the will, or seeks to know the will, He may thy ways guide, He may
thy acts manifested in His experience bring to the soul the
knowledge of thy walks with thy God. Hence, as has been said, when
thou prayest, let thy meditation be: "Use me, O God, as thou seest I
may better serve thee; in my waking moments, in my walks and my
dealings with my fellow man, be Thou the guide." Hence there needs be
only that reminding as to that He has already given, that: In the
manner, in the way ye treat thy fellow man, so ye do unto thy Maker.
He hath promised that those who draw nigh unto Him, He will draw
nigh to them. This is then indicating that, as ye apply the purposes, the aims,
the desires in thy daily conversation, thy daily activities with thy
fellow man, these are to be in accord with that He hath already given. In doing this in a manifested way and manner one is enabled to
become aware of that consciousness of the abiding of the Christ
hope, the Christ life, the Christ promise in one's experience.
Thus, whether the activities of the material or mental body are in
this or that direction, these principles, these activities may be a
part of the daily experience of one. For these are applicable, whether in reference to the daily
conversation, whether as to home, as to church, as to state, as to
For where there is hate, envy, or that attitude of same, there
Cannot dwell that love as He hath shown, or as He hath given, "A new
commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another."
Then, let thy activities in Every way, in Every manner, become those
of one who has put On Christ in such a manner, in such a way that
thy good be not evil spoken of, nor thy conversation questioned by
others. For unless thy activities and thy dealings with thy fellow man are
coordinate with the principles that ye proclaim ye believe, in His
activity, they become stumbling-stones to self as well as doubts and
fears in the minds and the experiences of others. Let thy conversation and thy activities, then, be consistent with
that thou professest to believe.
Thou Knowest in Whom thou may believe, and as to Who may be thy
Ideal. Then, practice same, not merely in speech, not merely in the
reciting of rote or of any message that may have been a part of the
experience of a disciple, but Live, Live in thy daily life that which is in keeping with that He has
given. In doing such, ye may become one with Him. For His promises are, "As
ye abide with me, I may abide with thee."
Then, let thy life, thy activities, be such that those seeing,
knowing, hearing, observing thee may know that ye walk and talk with
Jesus. Let thy meditation,
thy prayer ever be: "Father, God! In that Thou hast given to me the
Christ Consciousness, may I, in my daily walks before my fellow man, manifest the spirit of the Christ; in humbleness, in love, in
patience, in longsuffering; that I indeed may manifest the spirit of
the Christ Consciousness." Let Thy prayer be:
"Lord, Thy Will not mine be done in and through me! May I hear, may
I see in those about me the love of the Father for the children of
men! May I so act, so mete in my daily conversation, in my daily
activity, giving the spirit of truth, even as the Son gave; and
condemned no man! May I then condemn none, that I be not condemned." Hold thou to this in
thy prayer, set in the order with thy own problems: "Lord, let me
fill that place, that purpose in the lives of those I contact day by
day, that the
spirit of truth as manifest in Jesus the Christ may be magnified in
my speech, my activity; that others may see, may know that I walk,
that I talk with thee often! Let that which has been be as passed.
Let me look up, into the face of the Christ, with the pure purpose
that each word, each act may be in the true spirit of the
Christ-life." Let thy conversation,
thy prayer be: "Lord, here am I, use me in the way that I may be a
living message known of those whom I meet, with whom I am associated
day by day, as one who lives that professed in the heart and in the
speech day by day." Not looking to sorrow or joy, but rather being
glad within for being counted worthy as one that may be an ensample
before others of the truth and the spirit of the truth, as shown in
the Christ-life. "Let my yeas be yea, my nays be nay, but with that graciousness,
that beauty as He manifested in His speech with and in his walks
among men day by day. For I, O Father, would be like unto Him!" In thy problems, in
thy cares, take them all to Him in the spirit of truth and love that
He expressed and manifested to those with whom He walked and talked
as in the flesh: "As ye abide in me and I in you, so may the Father
be glorified in me." For in so living, speaking, acting before
others is the spirit of the Father, which is thy birthright,
manifested. And what does this bring into thy consciousness? That
awareness, that joy, that peace which He has promised, and that is a
part of thy
inheritance in Him, the peace that passeth understanding; the
assurance that thou art His and that He is thine! Make thy wants
known to Him. For He is mindful of thy cries. Keep the face, then,
towards the light of the Christ, and the sorrow and care will fade. Ask and ye shall
receive, saith the Lord who is thy keeper. Then in thy prayer, thy
meditation, call ye on Him. For He is not afar
off. And with the spirit of love that is His commandment to thee:
"that ye love one another" ask in His name.
Sow the seeds of truth, but Do Not continue to scratch them up, but
leave the results, the increase to Him. Sow that as ye would have thy Father do, and say, to thee. For the
Lord hath called thee to an excellent service, to thy fellow man.
Then let His ways be thy ways, his people be thy people, His prayers
thy prayers, His messages thy messages; and ye Will in the spirit of
the Christ Bring an awakening in the minds and the hearts of those
who seek to know Him. In thy study of spirit
and the application of same in thy daily life, let thy prayer, thy
supplication be: "Father, Thou knowest my heart, my mind, my body.
Make it all one with Thee; that I may in thy pleasure, in thy
purposes, be more and more a manifestation of thy love to the
children of men. "Help me, O Father, to put away, more and more, the cares of this
world and look to thee as the author and the finisher of faith; as
the manifestation of that which is
good, which is holy, which is right in the earth. And let me, O God,
in my dealings, in my conversation with and my invocation before
men, be a living example of the truth of the Christ in the earth." In thy seeking for
wisdom, know that it is not of the earth-earthy. Then let thy
prayer, thy meditation be, as ye study the lesson of Spirit and the
activity in same be as this; for ye know it is not what is said but
the spirit with which it is given that makes it a living thing or a
burden to someone's soul. "Father, let that love Thou hast
promised in the Christ be in me and my life, yea, in my
conversation to my fellow man. Let me so forget myself, yea, the
needs of the earthly body, that I may the more magnify the love
that is shown in the spirit of the Christ-life. "Let my activities be of such a nature that there is never a doubt
shown, a fear manifested. For love indeed casts out doubt and fear.
And may I live such an experience that the glory of the
Christ-Spirit directs, yea, builds, as the Builder indeed, in the
lives and the hearts of those I meet day by day. "Let this be, O
God, a living thing in my experience! For the spirit of truth Must prevail! Let Me, O God, be a channel through which the
Spirit is directed!" In thy meditation, in
thy seeking, know that the answer must come within. For His spirit
beareth witness with thy spirit, and ye know within thy own self as
to whether ye are conscious of His abiding presence or not. Then let
thy prayer be: "O Father, leave me not alone, but come, strengthen
Thou me in my weakness! Make me strong in the might and in the
purposes that Thou would use me, O God, in such a way and manner
that others whom I meet day by day may be constrained to glorify
Thee. "The cares of life and of the earth at times grow heavy, yet Thou, O
God, knowest the way! Be Thou the guide in my daily conversation, in
my daily dealings with my fellow man. For the Christ promised that
when we ask in His name Thou wilt not be slow to answer. "Keep Thou
my ways, O God!" In thy study of
Spirit, know there is the influence of body, of mind, of soul. These
are manifested in the material plane as an individual entity. Just
as the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit is an individual entity.
Just as time and space and patience are the individual manifestation
of that Spirit Body in the experiences of man. Then, as ye pray, and as ye think on these things, let thy cry,
yea, let the purpose of thy heart be: "Lord, use Thou me in the ways
and manners Thou seest that I may be the greater blessings, in my
weak way, before the children of men! Lord, Thou knowest my heart!
Make it one with Thee, even as the Christ in the material plane made
His life one with Thee! "In my weakness I often go amiss, I often am stirred to rebellion in
the experiences I see in the children of men. Let me, O Father, be
patient, be kind to such; even as the Christ was with those whom He
not only blessed but upon whose bodies He poured out His love in
such measures that others might be physically and mentally healed
even by their presence. "Thou art the same, O God, yesterday, today and forever! Then give
to me that strength, that measure of love that Thou seest I may use
in the Perfect way in the spirit of the Christ!" In thy study, in thy
meditation upon the activities of the spirit, thou seest in the
lives of others the motivative influences that are of good and of
bad. And yet the same spirit motivates these. For to each soul is
given the choice as to whether it will be one with the Father or,
even as the son of perdition, attempt to establish self in glory of
self. Then as ye meditate and pray: "Father, keep Thou my mind, my
heart open to thy calls! May I choose ever the spirit of the Christ
to be the author of my activities day by day. May I be patient and
longsuffering. May I be gentle, yea, may I be humble. For without
these, the very activity may become a stumblingblock. Then, keep my
heart pure. Renew the righteous spirit within me, O God! day by
day! May I hear again, as in the days of yore, the voice of the
Christ as He calls to men to Renew their faith and Manifest their
love of God in their dealings with their fellow man. "May I fill that purpose whereunto Thou hast called me into service
in the vineyard of the Christ, and may I fill it with that spirit
that He manifested when He gave, "Father, I condemn them not, they
know not what they do."
How should one go about
making practical application of the teaching and healing abilities
and how to develop same?
Find it within self, practice it, not by preaching but by teaching.
Teaching first by the application of brotherly love, kindness,
gentleness, longsuffering, patience with thy fellow man. Be not
hasty, but as ye interpret it in thy living, let others ask of thee.
Then teach, then administer, then apply in thy relationships with
others. The patience, the persistence most of all and, what is
lacking in most individuals, being consistent with self, with
others. Surrounding thyself with the Christ-consciousness. Living
daily in that consciousness by thy dealings with others.
Know that this Words He
Speaks to Thee
commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do,
that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which
the Lord sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the
way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the
wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And
he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with
manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he
might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man
live. Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot
swell, these forty years. Thou shalt also consider in thine heart,
that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth
thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy
God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of
fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land of
wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a
land of oil olive, and honey; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread
without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land
whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord
thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. Beware that thou
forget not the LORD thy GOD, in not keeping his commandments, and
his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest
when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and
dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is
multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord
thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the
house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible
wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought,
where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the
rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy
fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove
thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine
heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this
wealth. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant
which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be,
if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other
gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this
day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth
before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be
obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” -

Love of Justice, Love of Truth, and the
“To me, England is the country, and
the country is England. And when I ask myself what I mean by
England, when I think of England when I am abroad, England comes to
me through my various senses – through the ear, through the eye, and
through certain imperishable scents. I will tell you what they are,
and there may be those among you who feel as I do. The sounds of
England, the tinkle of hammer on anvil in the country smithy, the
corncrake on a dewey morning, the sound of the scythe against the
whetstone, and the sight of a plough team coming over the brow of a
hill, the sight that has been in England since England was a land,
and may be seen in England long after the Empire has perished and
every works in England has ceased to function, for centuries the one
eternal sight of England. The wild anemonies in the woods of April,
the last load at night of hay being drawn down a lane as the
twilight comes on, when you can scarcely distinguish the figures on
the horses as they take it home to the farm, and above all, most
subtle, most penetrating and most moving, the smell of wood smoke
coming in an autumn evening, or the smell of the scutch fires: that
wood smoke that our ancestors, tens of thousands of years ago, must
have caught on the air when they were still nomads, and when they
were still roaming the forests and the plains of the continent of
Europe. These things strike down into the very depths of our nature,
and touch chords that go back to the beginning of time and the human
race, but they are chords that with every year of our life sound a
deeper note in our innermost being. These are things that make
England, and I grieve for it that they are not the childish
inheritance of the majority of people to-day in our country. They
ought to be the inheritance of every child born into this country,
but nothing can be more touching than to see how the working man and
woman after generations in the towns will have their tiny bit of
garden if they can, will go to gardens if they can, to look at
something they they have never seen as children, but which their
ancestors knew and loved. The love of these things is innate and
inherent in our people. It makes for that love of home, one of the
strongest features of our race, and it that that makes our race seek
its home in the Dominions overseas, where they have room to see
things like this that they can no more see at home. It is that power
of making homes, almost peculiar to our people, and it is one of the
sources of their greatness. They go overseas, and they take with
them what they learned at home: love of justice, love of truth, and
the broad humanity that are so characteristic of English people. It
may well be that these traits on which we pride ourselves, which we
hope to show and try to show in our lives, may survive – survive
among our people so long as they are a people – and I hope and
believe this, that just as today more than fifteen centuries since
the last of those great Roman legionaries left England, we still
speak of the Roman character, so perhaps in the ten thousandth
century, long after the Empires of this world as we know them have
fallen and others have risen and fallen again, the men who are then
on this earth may yet speak of those characteristics which we prize
as the characteristics of the English, and that long after, maybe,
the name of the country has passed away, wherever mean are
honourable and upright and persevering, lovers of home, of their
brethren, of justice and of humanity, the men in the world of that
day may say, ‘We still have among us the gifts of that great English
race.’” - Stanley Baldwin, in “What England means to me”, 6 May
The Governing State Council
In the Governing State Council there
shall be 12 men and 12 woman, and 3 Grand Masters, perfectly versed in
all that is revealed of the Law, whose works shall be truth,
righteousness, justice, loving-kindness and humility. They shall
preserve the faith in the Land with steadfastness and meekness and
shall atone for sin by the practice of justice and by suffering the
sorrows of affliction. They shall walk with all men according to the
standard of truth and the rule of the time. When these are in
Israel, the Governing Council shall be established in truth. It
shall be an Everlasting Plantation, a House of Holiness for Israel,
an Assembly of Supreme Holiness for Aaron. They shall be witnesses
to the truth at the Judgement, and shall be the elect of Goodwill
who shall atone for the Land and pay to the wicked their reward. It
shall be that tried wall, that precious corner-stone, whose
foundations shall neither rock nor sway in their place. It shall be
a Most Holy Dwelling for Aaron, with everlasting knowledge of the
Covenant of justice, and shall offer up sweet fragrance. It shall be
a House of Perfection and Truth in Israel that they may establish a
Covenant according to the everlasting precepts. And they shall be an
agreeable offering, atoning for the Land and determining the
judgement of wickedness, and there shall be no more iniquity. When
they have been confirmed for two years in perfection of way in the
Foundation of the Order, they shall be set apart as holy within the
Council of the men of the Order. And the Interpreter shall not
conceal from them, out of fear of the spirit of apostasy, any of
those things hidden from Israel which have been discovered by him.
And when these become members of the Order in Israel according to
all these rules, they shall separate from the habitation of unjust
men and shall go into the wilderness to prepare there the way of
Him; as it is written, Prepare in the wilderness the way of the
Lord, make straight in the desert a path for our God. This is the
study of the Law which He commanded by the hand of Moses, that they
may do according to all that has been revealed from age to age, and
as the Prophets have revealed by His Holy Spirit. And no man among
the members of the Covenant of the Order who deliberately, on any
point whatever, turns aside from all that is commanded, shall touch
the pure Meal of the men of holiness or know anything of their
counsel until his deeds are purified from all injustice and he walks
in perfection of way. And then, according to the judgement of the
Nation, he shall be admitted to the Council and shall be inscribed
in his rank. This rule shall apply to whoever enters the Order.
The Rule of the Assembly
Each man shall sit in his place: the
Priests shall sit first, and the elders second, and all the rest of
the people according to their rank. And thus shall they be
questioned concerning the Law, and concerning any counsel or matter
coming before the Nation, each man bringing his knowledge to the
Governing Council. No man shall interrupt a companion before his
speech has ended, nor speak before a man of higher rank; each man
shall speak in his turn. And in an Assembly of the Order no man
shall speak without the consent of the Nation, nor indeed of the
Guardian of the Nation. Should any man wish to speak to the Nation,
yet not be in a position to question the Governing Council, let
him rise to his feet and say: "I have something to say to the
Nation." If they command him to speak, he shall speak. Every man,
born of Israel, who freely pledges himself to join the Governing
Council shall be examined by the Guardian at the head of the
Nation concerning his understanding and his deeds. If he is fitted
to the discipline, he shall admit him into the Covenant that he may
be converted to the truth and depart from all injustice; and he
shall instruct him in all the rules of the Nation. And later,
when he comes to stand before the Nation, they shall all deliberate
his case, and according to the decision of the Council of the Nation
he shall either enter or depart. After he has entered the Council of
the Community he shall not touch the pure Meal of the Nation until 1
full year is completed, and until he has been examined concerning
his spirit and deeds; nor shall he have any share of the property of
the Nation. Then when he has completed one year within the
Community, the Nation shall deliberate his case with regard to his
understanding and observance of the Law. And if it be his destiny,
according to the judgement of the Priests and the multitude of the
men of their Covenant, to enter the company of the Community, his
property and earnings shall be handed over to the Bursar of the
Nation who shall register it to his account and shall not spend it
for the Nation. He shall not touch the Drink of the Nation until he
has completed a second year among the men of the Community. But when
the second year has passed, he shall be examined, and if it be his
destiny, according to the judgement of the Nation, to enter the
Community, then he shall be inscribed among his brethren in the
order of his rank for the Law, and for justice, and for the pure
Meal; his property shall be merged and he shall offer his counsel
and judgement to the Community.
which those of perfect holiness shall follow in their commerce with
Every one who enters the Council of
Holiness, who walk in the way of perfection as commanded by God, and
who deliberately or through negligence transgresses one word of the
Law of Moses, on any point whatever, shall be expelled from the
Council of the Order and shall return no more; no man of holiness
shall be associated in his property or counsel in any matter at all.
But if he has acted inadvertently, he shall be excluded from the
pure Meal and the Council and they shall interpret the rule: For 2
years he shall take no part in judgement or ask for counsel; but if,
during that time, his way becomes perfect, shall return to the Court
of Inquiry and the Council, in accordance with the judgement of the
Nation, provided that he commit no further inadvertent sin during 2
full years. For 1 sin of inadvertence he shall do penance for 2
years. But as for him who has sinned deliberately, he shall never
return; only the man who has sinned inadvertently shall be tried for
2 years, that his way and counsel may be made perfect according to
the judgement of the Nation. And afterwards, he shall be inscribed
in his rank in the Council of Holiness. When these become members of
the Order in Israel according to all these rules, they shall
establish the spirit of holiness according to everlasting truth.
They shall atone for guilty rebellion and for sins of
unfaithfulness, that they may obtain loving-kindness for the Land
without the flesh of holocausts and the fat of sacrifice. And prayer
rightly offered shall be as an acceptable fragrance of
righteousness, and perfection of way as a delectable free-will
offering. At that time, the citizens of the Order shall set apart a
Council of Holiness in order that it may be united to the most holy
things, and a House in the Nation of Israel, for those who walk in
perfection. The sons of Aaron alone shall command in matters of
justice and property, and every rule concerning the citizens of the
Nation shall be determined according to their word. As for the
property of the men of holiness who walk in perfection, it shall not
be merged with that of the men of injustice who have not purified
their life by separating themselves from iniquity and walking in the
way of perfection. They shall depart from none of the counsels of
the Law to walk in all the stubbornness of their hearts, but shall
be ruled by the primitive precepts in which the citizens of the
Nation were first instructed until there shall come the Prophet and
the Messiahs of Aaron and Israel.
The precepts in which the Master shall walk
in His commerce with all the living, according to the rule proper to
every season and according to the worth of every one
He shall do the will of God according
to all that has been revealed from age to age. He shall measure out
all knowledge discovered throughout the ages, together with the
Precept of the age. He shall separate and weigh the sons of
righteousness according to their spirit. He shall hold firmly to the
elect of the time according to His will, as He has commanded. He
shall judge every man according to his spirit. He shall admit him in
accordance with the cleanness of his hands and advance him in
accordance with his understanding. And he shall love and hate
likewise. He shall not rebuke the men of the Pit nor dispute with
them. He shall conceal the teaching of the Law from men of
injustice, but shall impart true knowledge and righteous judgement
to those who have chosen the Way. He shall guide them all in
knowledge according to the spirit of each and according to the rule
of the age, and shall thus instruct them in the mysteries of
marvellous truth, so that in the midst of the citizens of the Nation
they may walk perfectly together in all that has been revealed to
them. This is the time for the preparation of the way into the
wilderness, and he shall teach them to do all that is required at
that time and to separate from all those who have not turned aside
from all injustice.
