The Second Coming
The Purpose of the
Order, Is To: Herald the Coming of The Lord
"Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter
rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of
the Lord draweth nigh. Grudge not one against another, brethren,
lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the
Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the
patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is
very pitiful, and of tender mercy." - James 5:7-11
"Then if any man shall
say unto you, "Lo, here is Christ", or there; believe it not. For
there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show
great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they
shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, "Behold, he is in the desert";
go not forth: "behold, he is in the secret chambers"; believe it
not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even
unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." -
Then, and thus, how
hath the angel given? “As ye have seen Him go, so will ye see Him
come.” Were those just as words? No. And when He speaks, “Be not
afraid, it is I.” Know He is near. And in the breaking of bread ye
may know Him!
“I leave thee, but I will come again and receive as many as ye have
quickened through the manifesting in thy life the will of the Father
in the earth.” Hence, know that, as thine mind, thine activities,
long more and more for the glorifying of the Son in the earth, for
the coming of the day of the Lord, He draws very nigh unto thee.
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
He will walk and
talk to each one of you
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. He shall appear even as the Lord
and Master. Not as one born, but as one that returneth to His own,
for He will walk and talk with men of every clime, and those that
are faithful and just in their reckoning shall be caught up with Him
to rule and to do judgment for a thousand years! Then in groups, in
masses, and then they shall reign of the first resurrection for a
thousand years; for this will be when the changes materially come.
We shall see Him as He is. He will walk among men. He will be in thy
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. Live ye then, each soul, as though
ye expected Him today. Then ye shall see Him as He is, when ye live
such a life. Be prepared each day to meet thy God. He will bless
those, as is the promise, who love His coming. Then, whether it be
in this experience or when ye have returned, let thy prayer ever be:
“Lord, use me in Thy way. Thy will be done, not mine.” Live ye then,
each soul, as though ye expected Him today.
He Will Return
And, as has been given, again the time draws near when there shall
be seen and known among men, in many places, the manifestations of
such forces in the material world; for, “As ye have seen Him go, so
will He return again.” Be thou faithful unto those words He has
given while yet with you. Hence it behooves every individual to take
cognizance of that force that may manifest in their material lives,
even in this material age.
Again we find individuals raised in certain sections for specific
purposes. As the cycle has gone about, time and again has there
arisen in the earth those that Manifested these forces in a more
magnificent, more beneficent, way and manner. And, as has been
given, again the time draws near when there shall be seen and known
among men, in many places, the manifestations of such forces in the
material world; for "As ye have seen him go, so will He return
again." Be thou faithful
unto those words He has given while yet with you. He that shall be
abased and remains true shall wear the Crown of Life? Does it become
unreasonable, then, that ye are being chastised for that which has
been builded within the material forces of the body itself, that
must be tried so as by fire? for the chaff must be burned out! Even
as with the use of those sources of information, the abilities to
become a portion of those elements that were the creative forces Of
the compounds or elements within the universal forces, at that
period brought about those forces that made for destruction of the
land itself, in the attempt to draw that as was in man then back To
the knowledge; and these brought about those destructive forces
(that are known today) in gases, with that called the death ray,
that brought from the bowels of the earth itself, when turned into
the sources of supply, those destructions to portions of the land.
Man has ever (even as then) when in distress, either mental,
spiritual Or physical, sought to know his association, his
connection, with the divine forces that brought the worlds into
being. As these are sought, so does the promise hold true - or that
given man from the beginning, "Will ye be my children, I will be thy
God!" "Ye turn your face from me, my face is turned from thee", and
those things ye have builded in thine own endeavour to make manifest
thine own powers bring those certain destructions in the lives of
individuals in the present, even as in those first experiences with
the use of those powers that are so tabu by the worldly-wise, that
are looked upon as old men's tales and women's fables; yet in the
strength of such forces do Worlds come into being! This is what
psychic force, and so called occult science, Did mean, Has meant,
Does mean in the world today. For when ye walk with Him, in purpose
and in ideal, ye will find that ye are never alone. Think not that
ye or any other individual may be the only one serving a living God.
For since His entry into the world, and His making it possible for
man to find his way back to God, there has been and will continue to
be an increase. For God has not willed that any soul should perish.
Though the lights of hope may oft grow dim, in the violence that is
created by those who become self-conscious of ability and who use
self and others for gratifying of selfish desires, let it ever be
said of thee that ye will make, ye will cause the welkin to ring for
the glory of the coming of the Lord. For He will one day come again,
and thou shalt see Him as He is, even as thou hast seen in thy early
sojourns the glory of the day of the triumphal entry and the day of
the Crucifixion, and as ye also heard the angels proclaim “As ye
have seen Him go, so will ye see Him come again.” Thou wilt be among
those in the earth when He comes again. Glory in that, but let it be
rather the one reason why ye keep the faith, the faith in the coming
of the Lord, to call those who have been faithful; that they, as He
prayed, “may be where I am, and may behold the glory which I had
with thee before the worlds were.” 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? Seek ye
Hasten, O Lord,
the day of thy Kingdom in the earth!
How have the promises read that the Son has given? “I go to prepare
a place that where I am there ye may be also. I will come again and
receive you unto myself.” Then, as the individual heart attunes its
mind and its body-activity into that consciousness of the desire for
the hastening of that day. Yet the merciful kindness of the Father
has, in the eyes of many, delayed the coming, and many have cried
even as the parable He gave, “We know not what has become of this
man. Show us other gods that may lead us in this day.” Yet the cry
in the heart and the soul of those that seek His way is to hasten
that day. Yet, as He has given, in patience, in listening, in being
still, may ye know that the Lord doeth all things well. Be not weary
that He apparently prolongs His time, for, as the Master has given:
“As to the day, no man knoweth, not even the son, but the Father and
they to whom the Father may reveal the Son prepareth the way that
all men may know the love of the Father.” And as ye would be the
channel to hasten that glorious day of the coming of the Lord, then
do with a might that thy hands find to do to make for the greater
manifestations of the love of the Father in the earth. For, into thy
keeping, and to His children and to His sons, has He committed the
keeping of the saving of the world, of the souls of men; for, as He
has given: “Who is my mother? Who is my brother? Who is my sister?”
They that do the will of my Father who is in heaven, the same is my
mother, my brother, my sister.” So, as He gave: “I leave thee, but I
will come again and receive as many as ye have quickened through the
manifesting in thy life the will of the Father in the earth.” Hence
know that, as thine mind, thine activities, long more and more for
the glorifying of the Son in the earth, for the coming of the day of
the Lord, He draws very nigh unto thee. Such we find as that
happening in Bethlehem of Judea ages and years ago, when that
channel had so dedicated itself to the service of her Maker as to
become Mother, wherein the whole world is shown that this must come
to pass in the experience of those who would make themselves
channels through which the Holy Spirit of God may manifest; that the
world may know that He, God the Father, keepeth His promises with
the children of men!
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?” Let thy
daily life be free from criticism, from condemnation, from hate,
from jealousy. And as ye give power to the Spirit of Peace, so may
the Prince of Peace, the love of God, manifest. So long as ye turn
thy thoughts to the manners and means for meeting and overcoming
those destructive forces, ye show forth that which may bring to the
world that day of the Lord. For the promise is that in the latter
days there shall be the purpose in the Hearts of men, everywhere!
For He will come again and receive His own, who have prepared
themselves through that belief in Him and acting in that manner; for
the Spirit is abroad, and the time draws near, and there will be the
reckoning of those even as in the first so in the last, and the last
shall be first; for there is that Spirit abroad, He standeth near.
He that hath eyes to see, let him see. He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear that music of the coming of the Lord of this vineyard,
and art Thou ready to give account of that Thou hast done with thine
opportunity in the earth as the Sons of God, as the heirs and joint
heirs of glory With the Son? Then make thine paths straight, for
there must come an answering for that Thou hast done with thine
Lord! He will not tarry, for having overcome He shall appear even As
the Lord And Master. Not as one born, but as one that returneth to
His own, for He will walk and talk with men of every clime, and
those that are faithful and just in their reckoning shall be caught
up with Him to rule and to do Judgement for a thousand years!
The Dawn of a New
The needs of the world for the new message, which is in keeping with
the needs in the present, as then. There was the looking forward to
the coming of the Messiah.
Today there is the looking forward to the coming of the Prince of
Peace, the New Era. That entrance again of god-man into the earth
that man might know the way.
When Jesus the
Christ comes the second time, will He set up His Kingdom on earth
and will it be an everlasting kingdom?
"Read His promises in that ye have written of His words, even as I
He shall rule for a thousand years.
Then shall Satan be loosed again for a season."
First, study to show thyself approved unto thy consciousness of the
indwelling of God in Christ in thee; rightly divining (and dividing)
the words of truth, putting proper evaluation upon the experiences
in the activities of individuals and groups; keeping self unspotted
from that which ye would question in another.
Minister to those in many places; gentleness, kindness, patience.
For in patience ye become aware of thy relationship to Patience as
shown by thy Saviour, with a world that might have been eradicated
by only a word, yet He wept, rather than found fault.
Do thou likewise. Weep with those that weep; rejoice with those that
do rejoice; for in humbleness, in patience, ye may find thy true
relationship to thy fellow man; and in thy ministry to thy brethren,
to thy neighbours, yea to thy enemies, ye show forth thy concept, ye
show forth the love ye have of thy Lord till He comes again! In the Lord's house
are many mansions. In thy mind and heart are many possibilities,
many opportunities. Lose not a single one to make known the love
that the Master has for the children of men. For He, too, was one of
them. So in thy ways of grace and mercy, show forth the Lord's
death, the Lord's life, the Lord's love, until He comes again.
Pray ye that the Lord of the harvest find ye not idle but up and
doing, with a might, that thy mind, thy heart, thy hands find to do.
For the Lord will not always tarry. For He will come as a thief in
the night. Are ye ready for His coming? Hath ye fulfilled that as
has been purposed in self to do? Why tarry ye in the waiting's,
tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow?
Let thy heart, thy mind, be comforted. For the Lord is in His holy
temple, and is merciful to those that show mercy; patient with those
that show patience.
It is never too late to mend thy ways
For life is eternal and ye are today what ye are because of what ye
For ye are the co-creator with thy Maker, that ye may one day be
present with all of those who love His coming.
Why did Jesus say, "Touch me not," when He first appeared to Mary
after the resurrection?
For the vibrations to which the glorified body was raised would have
been the same as a physical body touching a high power current. Why
do you say not touch the wire?
If ye are in accord, or not in touch with the earth, it doesn't
harm; otherwise, it's too bad!
white horse and rider in Revelation 19
the Christ in that it, as the horse, in the experiences of the
awakening is the symbol of the messenger; and this is Christ, Jesus,
The first and second resurrections
The first is of those who have not tasted death in the sense of the
dread of same. The second is of those who have Gained the understanding that in Him there Is no death.
The meaning of one thousand years that Satan is bound
Is banished. That, as there are the activities of
the forty and four thousand, in the same manner that the prayer of ten just should save a city, the deeds, the prayers of the faithful will allow that period when the incarnation of
those only that are in the Lord shall rule the earth, and the period is as a thousand years.
Thus is Satan bound, thus is Satan banished from the earth. The desire to do evil is only of him. And when there are, as the symbols, those only whose desire and purpose of their heart is to glorify the Father, these will be those periods when this shall come to pass.
Be Ye All Determined within thy minds, thy hearts, thy purposes, to be of that number!
Purifying of the Body
the purifying of the body in thought, in act, in certainty, it may
make for a peoples, a state, a nation, that may indeed herald the
coming of the Lord.
"The just shall live by his faith." - Habakkuk 2:4
The Time, Times, and an Half
“I saw in the night visions, and,
behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and
came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all
people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an
everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom
that which shall not be destroyed”. - Daniel 7:12-13
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even
to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge
shall be increased. Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood
other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the
other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man
clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long
shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed
in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up
his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that
liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and
when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy
people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I
understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of
these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are
closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be
purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do
wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise
shall understand.” - Daniel 12:4-10
The Second Coming in the New Testament
"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples
came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I
say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto
him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what
shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not
troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill
you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the
world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth,
let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing
out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck
in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there;
believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and
shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the
desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even
unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall
fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see
the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and
they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one
end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it
is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all
these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the
Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating
and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what
watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not
have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord
delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink
with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." -
