The Manifestations of the Father
The fruits of the spirit. Gentleness, kindness, the loving word,
patience, hope, persistence, and, above all, consistency in thy
acts and in thy speech. Be ye glorious in thine activity. Be ye
joyous in thy words. For, Happy is the man that knoweth that his
life bespeaks that the Son and the Spirit of Truth directs the words
and the activities of his body!
The protection of the Father
and His goodness in manifestation in the Earth
As He has given from the beginning, "If ye will be my children, I
will be your God." So, as individuals, in the application of that
known in their experience as to what the will of the Father is, go
about Thinking, and Thinking it in such a manner that the words of
the mouth and the activity of the hand bespeak the will of the
Father; then this activity, this thought, makes the individual the
channel through which the manifestations are in the earth.
For, who may know in the earth the heart of the mother save a
Who may know the will of the Father, God, save those that put into
the acts of their hands, in the thoughts of their minds, those
things that He has given and as He shows forth in the experience of
all men from day to day?
So simple, then, is it to know the Father that all stumble in that
they Think of themselves more highly than they ought to think. Be
rather as a channel through which the Father may make His love, His
glory, manifest in the earth.
Listen to the voice from within. For, He is very nigh unto each of
you, if ye will but look Within. And that thou experienceth with the
desire that thy self be nothing, that the Father, the Christ, may be
glorified in the earth, brings to the experience of all the
consciousness of being a manifestation of the love of the Father to
the sons of man.
God and His Manifestations in
For, as He has given, ye may call "Lord, Lord," even may heal the
sick, cast out demons even in His name, and yet not be accepted in
His sight; for by the fruits ye shall know them that are called of
the Lord, in the ways and manners
that His manifestations are through the lives of the individuals
that make profession in their life Of their associations; but if
their life and the fruits of their lives bring not forth greater
manifestations, and those things that are of the spirit, the fruits
of the spirit, then they are none of His.
Not everyone that saith "Lord, Lord," but he that doeth the will of
the Father, the same is acceptable in His sight. What, then, are the
manifestations of the Father in the earth? That ye do good unto all
peoples, and that the fruits of the spirit are manifested in thy
thoughts, in thy acts day by day as ye meet thy fellow men in their
own conditions where troubles, doubts, fears, distresses arise.
And as there is given those things into their experience from thine
own desire to be the channel through which the manifestations of the
spirit of the Christ, of the Christ Consciousness, may be in the
experience of such individuals, thy words and thy acts are in
keeping with that He, the Father, makes manifest in the earth
through the Son, as He in His life made manifest in His walks in
the earth, doing good to those whether they were of His fold or
those that even rejected that He had done rather as an experience in
Then, as they each may manifest in the thought, in the application
of those truths as He gave, they may come to those experiences
wherein they oft may be as a lamp to the feet of the wayward, as an
aid to those who seek, as a light to those that have gone astray, as
a guiding hand to those that would know more and more of the love of
the Father as it manifests in the acts, the thoughts, the lives of
For all is born first in spirit, then in mind, then it may become
manifested in the material plane. For God moved and the heavens and
the earth came into being. God is spirit. Man with his soul, that
may be a companion to the Creative Forces, is of that same source.
Thus to grow in grace and knowledge, one applies, one has, one uses
one's spiritual self.
And with what spirit we apply, we grow also in mind and in body.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Each individual will find itself body, mind and soul. There are in
the three-dimensional applications of influence outside of self,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Then, of course, there is the mental-body, as well as the soul-body.
These are not visible to the normal eye and yet this body may
discern about others not merely their own mental bodies but that
such a body-mind uses in its application of physical, mental and
Then, in the study of self there is the recognition that there are
forces outside of self, there are forces and influences within self.
The true God-forces meet within, not without self.
For when there are altars builded outside, which individuals
approach for the interpretation of law, whether it be physical,
mental or spiritual, these are temptations. It is concerning such
that warnings were given to the peoples.
Others may say, "Oh, that's the old Jewish conception of it," but be
ye Jew, Gentile, Greek, Parthenian or what, the law is One, as God
And the first command is: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
Begin first and analyze thyself, thy purposes. Know that thy body,
thy mind, thy soul are One. Thy body is the Temple. Treat it as such, the Temple of God. Don't abuse it, don't misuse it, but, in mind
and in spirit, as well as in physical outlook, keep it as a place
worthy of thy Father-God, and thy Saviour, the Christ, meeting with
thee in that Body, that Mind, that Soul.
Then, know in what ye believe, and know who is the author of same.
His purpose has been: "If ye Love me, ye will keep my Commandments,
and if ye keep my Commandments I and the Father will come and abide
Then be consistent in thy choices of that which will be thy source,
thy understanding. For if the Lord thy God be with thee, who may be
Kingdom of Heaven
Know that the kingdom of heaven is
within, and that the kingdom of God is without; and these are the
kingdoms to which ye alone would give allegiance, and thy
characters the same. For the kingdom of love must be
within, even as the kingdom of heaven. For without that as the
purpose, without that as the desire, how may one experience it? Not
unto self, but that the glory of Him who is the light may be
manifested in the lives and the experiences of others.
First know in Whom and in what ye have believed. And know that He in
Whom ye have believed is able to keep that ye commit unto Him
against Any experience that may arise in thy consciousness of any
For materially He says: "Come unto me, ye that are weak and
heavy-laden, and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
To the mental He says: "In my father's house are the many mansions,
the many phases, the many stages of activities."
To thy spirit He says: "Be ye One, even as I and my Father are one!"
Then in Him ye have thy answer. For His ways are not past finding
out, to those who seek to do His biddings.
Then, through those channels that have appealed and do appeal to
thee, let thy activities be in setting aright those who have lost
their way here or there; those who need the assurance that all is
not lost because of the ills of the flesh; those who need the
assurance that all is not lost because that we call death has closed
the door; but rather that Life; As a manifestation of God, is
Continuous in the Experiences of those who seek to be in
companionship with Him.
What is the variation between
the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven?
One is within while the other is the activity of the Infinite
upon those influences that bring to bear the experiences of the
Kingdom within the lives of the individuals. For He has so oft
likened it to the various experiences that may be in the
emotions of the individuals; as: The kingdom of heaven is
likened unto him who has the 100 sheep and 1 was lost, and he
left the 99 and went to seek that which was lost. Or the kingdom
of heaven is likened unto she that lost a penny and tore up the
whole house and called on the neighbours to rejoice because she
had found that which was lost. These are examples of the Kingdom
of Heaven; while the Kingdom of God, they that enter in have
known the Happiness of the Kingdom of Heaven in their Own
The kingdom of heaven is within
Much of that which is of a
theosophical, philosophical and theological nature must be
touched upon. For it is upon such a basis that all entities, all
souls in their study must draw for their strength, their faith,
their hope. There are in the experience of each entity, those
mental and spiritual activities that are often taken for
granted, without considering the source, or without being
justified by an individual experience as to the truth, or having
self-conviction within as respecting same. This is what is so
oft termed "blind faith". But the individual experience
concerning the source, the reason for the conviction, has been
and is the promise, in the purpose of the Christ's entering into
the earth, and the promises that are individual, made through
and during His material ministry. Then such an experience or a
fulfilling of the promise may be a part of the individual in the
present, if there is the consideration given such, and the
drawing upon same. For as He has promised: "If ye love me ye
will keep my commandments, and I and the Father will come and
Abide with thee; and what ye ask in my name, Believing, shall be
done in the body!" These appear in the first premise to be as
mere statements. But consider for the moment the conditions in
which these were given, and how they may apply to thyself, in
the body, now. First we find there is the body, the mind, the
soul. Ye may say: "Yes, I know the body, I experience the mind,
I know not the soul." The Soul is that which is the image of the
Maker, and only in patience, as the Christ gave, may ye indeed
become aware Of thy soul's activity; through its longings,
through its convictions, through its experience into the realms
of the spiritual undertakings. How do these come about? Then how
do they apply in thyself? As ye have been taught, as ye are
aware: The Godhead is the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. Just
as in thyself, as the pattern; the body, the mind, the soul.
They are one, just as the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit are
one. They each functioning in coordination or cooperation as one
with another become as thy own experiences in a material world,
the awareness of the consciousness of that God-force, that
Spirit abiding within. Then, there has been given, there has
been shown the way that the Father is mindful of His children;
that these as they appear in the earth, yea, thyself, are a
portion of His manifestation. Not as an indefinite force, not as
an unconcrete thing, not as just a mist, but just as is
manifested not only in the Christ but as is manifested in thee,
thy desires to do right, thy desires that there be the
manifesting of love, of patience, of hope, of longsuffering, of
brotherly-kindness, of doing good even when others speak
unkindly, when others revile thee, when others say those things
that in thy physical consciousness find resentment. But as He
manifests, as a portion of that Godhead that is represented in
thee, as In thy Mind, then ye become aware that ye are Indeed a
child of the living God, and are in materiality for those
purposes of manifesting those very things that are the fruits of
the Spirit in thy dealings with thy fellow man. For as ye
measure to thy fellow man it is measured to thee again. This is
an Unchangeable law! For as ye ask for forgiveness, only in
those measures in which ye forgive may ye be forgiven. For are
ye not seeking to be one with Him? Then only As ye forgive may
ye Be forgiven! Only As ye show forth love, may love be shown
forth to thee! Ye cannot rise above that as ye measure, that as
ye live. For as the expression of life Is the manifestation of
that love, then in the measure as it metes so is it measured to
thee. Know that as the Mind is represented by the
Christ-Consciousness, it is the Builder, it is the Way, it is
the Truth, it is the Light; that is: through the manner in which
the Mind is held. Not that it denies, not that it rejects, but
that it is Made as one with the purposes He, thy Lord, thy
Christ, thy God, thy holy self, would have it be. Not to the
glorifying of the body. For even as He, thy Lord gave: "I can of
myself do nothing, it is as the Father worketh in and through
me." Then it is as the body, the mind, the spirit, the
motivating forces, coordinant as one with another, With the
divine law. Ye know the law. What is the law? "Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy mind, thy body; thy
neighbour as thyself." This as He gave is the whole law. There
is none above that. And ye may, as He has promised, become aware
in thy own consciousness of His abiding presence, by the
awarenesses that may come to thee as ye meditate, as ye pray
from day to day. Ask and He will give. For as ye walk, as ye
talk with Him, ye become aware of His presence abiding with
thee. For this purpose ye came into this experience; that ye
might Glorify that consciousness, that awareness of His
presence, of His Spirit abiding with thee. Ye give
manifestations of same in the manner, in the way in which ye
measure that love to others about thee day by day. This do, and
ye will know the truth, the truth shall indeed make you free.
Not condemning, not finding fault here nor there at any of the
experiences; knowing that God is, and that ye must, that ye
Will, that ye May, and it is the glorious opportunity, the
glorious promise to just be able to be kind, to be gentle, to be
patient with thy fellow man day by day! And the Assurance comes
within thy own self, for His promise is to meet thee in the
tabernacle of thy own conscience. For as Jesus said: "Lo, the
kingdom of heaven is within You!"
