The Christ Spirit is The Door to the Kingdom of the Father
The Door is through the life, the spirit of the life, not the man itself,
but the spirit that manifests the Christ Consciousness in the material world.
The Christ Spirit is the door, the truth, the way, not the man.
The Application is the manner in which the Individual becomes The Door
for the entering in of the Christ Consciousness that presents the Way, the Manner
of approach to the Kingdom of the Father.
The Actions of an individual becomes the Door
AS THE FATHER KNOWETH ME,
SO MAY I KNOW THE FATHER,
THROUGH THE CHRIST SPIRIT,
THE DOOR TO THE KINGDOM OF THE FATHER.
SHOW THOU ME THE WAY.
In the preparations, then, for the lessons that may be gained
by each that have dedicated themselves and their efforts
in the preparation of the way, the door is through the life, the spirit of the life
- not the man, but the spirit as manifest in the Christ Consciousness in the material world.
So, as each do manifest in their daily walks in and before men
with that consciousness as the standard,
so may the door be opened for that entity, that soul,
to so grow and magnify that spirit to the glorifying of the Father,
losing self in the service to others, that in the earth His name
may be established forever.
BE STILL, MY CHILDREN!
BOW THINE HEADS,
THAT THE LORD OF THE WAY MAY MAKE KNOWN UNTO YOU
THAT HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR A SERVICE IN THIS PERIOD
WHEN THERE IS THE NEED OF THAT SPIRIT
BEING MADE MANIFEST IN THE EARTH,
THAT THE WAY MAY BE KNOWN
TO THOSE THAT SEEK THE LIGHT!
FOR THE GLORY OF THE FATHER WILL BE MADE MANIFEST
THROUGH YOU THAT ARE FAITHFUL
UNTO THE CALLING WHEREIN THOU HAST BEEN CALLED!
YE THAT HAVE NAMED THE NAME
MAKE KNOWN IN THY DAILY WALKS OF LIFE,
IN THE LITTLE ACTS OF THE LESSONS
THAT HAVE BEEN BUILDED IN THINE OWN EXPERIENCE,
THROUGH THOSE ASSOCIATIONS OF SELF IN MEDITATION AND PRAYER,
THAT HIS WAY MAY BE KNOWN AMONG MEN:
FOR HE CALLS ON ALL - WHOSOEVER WILL MAY COME
- AND HE STANDS AT THE DOOR OF THINE OWN CONSCIENCE,
THAT YE MAY BE AWARE THAT THE SCEPTER
HAS NOT DEPARTED FROM ISRAEL,
NOR HAVE HIS WAYS BEEN IN VAIN: FOR TODAY,
WILL YE HARKEN, THE WAY IS OPEN
- I, MICHAEL, CALL ON THEE!
[See also 262-28]
As to the preparation of selves, THE APPLICATION of that as has been given
IS THE MANNER in which THE INDIVIDUALS BECOME THE DOOR
FOR THE ENTERING IN OF THAT CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE MASTER
that PRESENTS THE WAY, THE MANNER OF APPROACH TO THE KINGDOM.
Then, as He has given, "I stand before the door and knock."
Who will open?
Who, then, will become THE DOOR that will lead others to that knowledge,
that appreciation of the ONENESS OF THE SON WITH THE FATHER,
which may be MADE MANIFEST in the material world
through THE APPLICATION OF THOSE ATTRIBUTES of the Son, of the Father,
in the activities of the individual?
Who, then, has learned to be truly COOPERATIVE one with another?
Who has discerned self sufficient to KNOW wherein SELF stands as in relationship with its fellow man?
Who has set the IDEAL wholly in Him?
Who magnifies the FAITH in the Father, in the Son, that it may be counted to them for righteousness?
Who hath VIRTUE and UNDERSTANDING,
that they may magnify in their lives that FELLOWSHIP
which brings PATIENCE in the knowing of self to be growing in grace,
in nurture and admonition of the Lord day by day?
He, then, it is that OPENS THE DOOR that He may come in and sup with him!
AN INDIVIDUAL ACT OPENS THE WAY,
that the door may come to mean the access of the Son of man, the Savior,
and the consciousness of the at-oneness with the Creative Forces
that manifest in a material world.
James. [James 1:1 and James 5:9]
In that which has been so far prepared,
it would be very well that this be continued in the same vein or manner,
but expressed or given in the terms for the individual, or the individual interpretations,
that this may reach in its entirety the greater numbers
which has been indicated is necessary for the greater good
to be accomplished through the distribution of such data that is presented in such lessons.
For those who have as yet not become contributors to this lesson,
begin rather in the manner that has been indicated for each.
How does COOPERATION make for an attribute to the open door?
COOPERATION is making self selfless in the way
that the IDEAL OF THE BODY may be in that PHASE OF EXPERIENCE
as to be led by THE IDEAL;
Thus, when properly considered, BECOMING THE OPENING OF THE DOOR
that He who stands and knocks may enter in.
In making self selfless
SELFISHNESS IS OBLITERATED,
that there may be THE ACTIVITY OF THE IDEAL,
and being LED then BY THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH
gains the UNDERSTANDING OF THE IDEAL IN ITS OPERATION
upon the lives and activities of individuals;
Thus BECOMING A PRACTICAL APPLICATION in a material world
through THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH that makes not afraid,
but through FAITH leads on to the OPENING OF THE WAYS OF VIRTUE,
UNDERSTANDING and PATIENCE,
in which all become the more CONSCIOUS of that ONENESS WITH THE FATHER,
so that AS WE ARE KNOWN BY THE FATHER so may we know the Father,
thus making in the material activities of the mental and the conscious mind
those channels that we as individuals,
thus applying these necessary forces or activities in our own experience,
become channels that THE WAY MAY BE KNOWN TO OTHERS;
thus entering into the kingdom of heaven.
This variation differentiates the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN from the KINGDOM OF THE FATHER:
One is the experiences of the finite. (KINGDOM OF HEAVEN)
The other is the glory with the Oneness in the infinite. (KINGDOM OF THE FATHER)
Thus, as individuals become aware of these activities, the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is within.
Even as He gave,
not that this is to be attained only THROUGH TRANSITION; but THROUGH THE CONSCIOUSNESS,
THE AWARENESS OF THE ACTIVITY OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IN AND THROUGH US, AS INDIVIDUALS,
with that birthright of the Sons of the Father; ONE WITH HIM AS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIGHT,
that is shed abroad in the world, the earth, that we may have that advocate with the Father in light.
(Q) What should be the basis and fundamental thoughts to be presented in the lesson on THE OPEN DOOR?
(A) The Christ Spirit is the door, the truth, the way; not the man
For, AS the Father knows you, so may you know the Father
through the EXEMPLIFYING OF HIS ATTRIBUTES in the earth.
Little by little, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little,
for the glory of the Father - not the exaltation of thine own self;
For with the exaltation of self - or the gratifying of the desires of flesh - the door closes.
[See also 262-28]
(Q) : In the reading of Aug. 7th, [262-25] please explain what is meant by
"Look not back. Remember Lot's wife."
(A) Looking to the front ever, for as one looks towards the light the shadows fall behind
and do not become stumbling blocks to individual development.
Thoughts are things, and while the past that is passed may be used as stepping-stones to higher things,
looking back causes one to stumble, even as Lot's wife looked upon that left
as longing for those satisfying elements that made for the carnal, rather than the spiritual life.
(Q) In the reading of Aug. 21st, [262-26] I was told, "Watch that ye be not overcome."
Is there any specific thing of which I should be watchful?
(A) That there is not the looking back upon associations, relations, or conditions
that make for the tendencies to dwell upon the past.
(Q) : Is there a special message that will help me in contributing to the lesson on THE OPEN DOOR.
(A) In learning the application of those lessons that have been given
may the individual know how and the manner in which self may contribute to that lesson,
in the application of THE OPEN DOOR.
Self must open the door that He may enter in.
Self will work at that job of bringing that consciousness, that awareness of His presence
in the material and mental affairs of life,
knowing that lesson must ever be that the
SPIRIT IS THE LIFE,
THE MENTAL IS THE BUILDER, and
THE PHYSICAL or MATERIAL RESULTS
are the effects of the application of the knowledge or understanding toward life, light,
or the spirit of ANY effort.
So, then, measure self and self's efforts by that standard in Him who went about doing good.
Do thou likewise.
(Q) : I would like to have a message on THE OPEN DOOR.
(A) As the application of self to those attributes
that have made for the awareness of that consciousness of His presence
in the material activities is put into actual actions of self,
so does there become the ability to open the way for others
to become aware of that necessary in their experience
to enter into THAT KINGDOM through that OPEN DOOR.
(Q) : Please explain to me, "THE WAY IS OPEN", given in the reading of Sept. 4th. [262-27]
(A) That there has been given in those lessons of preparation
that which makes THE CONSCIOUSNESS of the mental forces of individuals
the way, the manner that they, the individual, may open the door,
and the way is ready for activity through the opening thereof.
(Q) Please explain "THE KINGDOM OF THE FATHER." [262-27]
(A) The consciousness of His force, power, activity, in every element of action
on the part of those who without thought of self have opened THE WAY
for the activity of the Christ Consciousness in the material world;
For only those of material thought or material activities may demonstrate
or bring to the consciousness of the individuals in material life
as to what is the activity, the spiritual essence in the life.
Let's illustrate, then, in an everyday act of an individual:
As is known of all, water is a necessary element in the material forces
for the sustaining of life in the material plane;
hence this element often is called the mother of creation.
How does water, then, supply that which nourishes in this material plane?
Being made up of elements in itself that are the essence
of that which may truly be called spiritual in itself,
it gives that association or connection between the spiritual forces
acting in the material elements of the earth, or material forces;
Hence in ENTERING IN THE KINGDOM OF THE FATHER
is knowing and following and BEING those elements
that supply the needs of that which builds in the material plane
towards the continuity of the spiritual forces manifest in the earth.
So, one enters, then, THROUGH THE DOOR WITH THE SAVIOR,
that brings that necessary force in the life of others, and in saving others saves self.
How came the Son of man the way that leads to perfection in heaven and in earth?
In overcoming the forces in nature and in earth, by giving of self for others;
hence becoming the Savior of others becomes the Son and one with the Father.
(Q) : In meditation I had a consciousness of the Christ walking with a shepherd's rod in His hand,
and beside Him was one lone sheep.
Again in consciousness I saw Him, and there were many sheep beside Him.
Is this in any way connected with the lesson on THE OPEN DOOR?
(A) As He is the way, and stands at the door, and those who hear His voice are His sheep
and He the good shepherd, so may MANY become His sheep through the seeking to be one with Him.
This is an illustration of that which has been given,
as to how one who has, does, will apply those things given in the lessons
may now open the door that many sheep may enter the fold,
for they hear His voice and answer by name even as He calls, and
"There are other sheep I have that are not of this fold," gave He,
"they also will I bring and they will be one fold."
That as applied in self, in self's seeking with Him, through Him,
through the door opened by self to Him;
For, even as He gave, "I do nothing of myself."
So may we in opening the door with Him be one with Him in the Father, that we all may be one in Him.
(Q) : Would appreciate a message on THE OPEN DOOR.
(A) Take that thou hast in hand, that thou hast builded day by day,
and without fear OPEN THE DOOR that He may come in and abide with thee;
For "He that takes my yoke upon him and learns of me, with HIM will I abide day by day,
and all things will be brought to remembrance that I have given thee
since the foundations of the world, for thou were with me in the beginning
and thou may abide with me in that day when the earth will be rolled as the scroll;
for the heavens and the earth will pass away, but my word shall NOT pass away."
The promises in Him are sure - the way ye know!
(Q) : Can lost opportunities be redeemed?
(A) Nothing is lost.
Nothing is lost; we have used or abused our opportunities and there abide by them.
In Him, through Him may they be blotted out,
For "Though your sins be as scarlet, in Him they shall be as wool.
He that heareth my voice and abideth in me shall KNOW no lost opportunity!"
(Q) Please enlarge on the statement:
"Through gratifying of the desires of flesh the door closes." [262-27]
(A) As self is a free-willed agent in a material world,
with the birthright of the attributes of the sons of God,
then gratifying of the earthly desires through the gratifying of the flesh
DOES CLOSE THE DOOR to the spiritual life;
For the closing is in self.
He is ever ready.
The spirit is ever willing; and one needs then to rely upon those promises,
not in the passive, but the positive, active manner,
that there be kept the door open that He may enter in.
(Q) What should be understood by the statement, "The scepter has not departed from Israel?" [262-27]
(A) Israel is the chosen of the Lord, and that His promise, His care, His love, has not departed
from those that seek to know His way, that seek to see His face, that would draw nigh unto Him.
THIS is the meaning, this should be the understanding to all.
Those that seek are Israel.
Those that seek not, have ye not heard, "Think not to call thyselves the promise in Abraham.
Know ye not that the Lord is able to raise up children of Abraham from the very stones?"
So Abraham means call;
so Israel means those who seek.
How obtained the supplanter the name Israel?
For he wrestled with the angel, and he was face to face with the seeking to know His way.
So it is with us that are called and seek His face; we are the Israel.
Know, then, the scepter, the promise, the love, the glory of the Lord has not departed from them that seek His face!
(Q) What is the relationship between Michael the lord of the way, and Christ the way? [262-27]
(A) Michael is an archangel that stands before the throne of the Father.
The Christ is the Son, the way TO the Father, and one that came into the earth as man, the Son of man,
that man might have the access to the Father; hence the way.
Michael is the lord or the guard of the change that comes in every soul that seeks the way,
even as in those periods when His manifestations came in the earth.
BOW THINE HEADS, O YE SONS OF MEN, WOULD YE KNOW THE WAY:
FOR I, MICHAEL, THE LORD OF THE WAY, WOULD WARN THEE
THAT THOU STANDEST NOT IN THE WAY OF THY BROTHER
NOR SITTEST IN THE SEATS OF THE SCORNFUL, [Ps. 1:1]
BUT RATHER MAKE KNOWN THAT LOVE, THAT GLORY, THAT POWER IN HIS NAME,
THAT NONE BE AFRAID;
FOR I, MICHAEL, HAVE SPOKEN!
(Q) What is meant by the throne of the Father?
(A) The approach to being wholly in the at-oneness with the Father,
reached only through the abilities to leave the carnal forces and be one in spirit with the Father.
(Q) Please explain clearly the difference between the Christ Consciousness, the Christ Spirit.
(A) As the difference might be given in that which makes for the birth in the flower, and the flower.
The consciousness of the Spirit (AWARENESS) and the abilities to apply the Spirit(APPLICATION)
are the differences in the Christ Consciousness, the Christ Spirit.
As has been given, the devils believe, the devils know, individuals that may be conscious of an activity.
Those with the abilities to call upon, to be so unselfish
as to allow the Spirit to operate in self's stead, are aware of the Spirit's activity,
while those that may be conscious or aware of a truth
may not wholly make it their own without that which has been given,
"He that would have life must give life;"
For HE thought it not robbery to be equal with the Father, yet of Himself did nothing,
"but the Father that worketh in me, through me."
Do thou likewise, that thou may know the consciousness of the Christ Spirit,
and experience the operation of that witness, that
"My Spirit beareth witness with thy spirit, that the Father may be glorified in you,
even as I am glorified in the Father through you.
If ye love me keep my commandments, and I will abide with you.
I will NOT leave thee comfortless;
I will make thee aware of that glory I possessed with the Father before the world was."
In such a manner may individuals become aware of the Christ Consciousness
and become one with the operative forces of the Christ Spirit abroad in the earth;
For He shall come again, even as ye have seen Him go.
THEN shall the Christ Spirit be manifest in the world,
even as the Christ Consciousness may make thee aware
of that promised as the Comforter in this material world.
Then, the Christ Consciousness is the Holy Spirit,
or that as the promise of His presence made aware of His activity in the earth.
The Spirit is as the Christ in action with the Spirit of the Father.
(Q) Explain and expand fully the thought that the Christ Spirit, not the man, should be the door, the truth, the way.
(A) That which has been given may be used to illustrate the difference
that may be felt by a soul that has become aware of itself, as the Christ,
or as Jesus the man became aware of the Spirit of the Father
through those experiences of the man as he "went about doing good,"
and at those periods when there was received those acknowledgements of the Father
that he WAS the one who could, WOULD, through those activities,
become the Savior of man.
First, as "in whom I am well pleased;" then as "This is my son; hear ye him!"
In the overcoming, then, He IS the way, the manner in which individuals may become aware
of their souls that are in accord with that as may be one with the spirit of truth;
for corruption inherits not eternal life.
The Spirit is the true life.
Then, as individuals become aware of that ability IN HIM to be the way,
so they become the door, as representatives, as agents, as those that present the way;
and the door is thus opened;
and not to the man but the spirit of self that bears witness with the spirit of truth
through Him that overcame the world, thus putting the world under His feet.
So we, as heirs of the kingdom, as brothers one with Him, may enjoy that privilege
as He has given to those that hear His voice and put on the whole armor;
that we may run the race that is set before us, looking to Him, the author, the giver of light;
For in Him ye live and move and HAVE their being.
Do ye become rebels?
Do ye find fault one with another, that are as self heirs to that kingdom?
Rather be in that humbleness of spirit, that His will "be done in earth as it is in heaven."
Thus do we become the children of the Father, the door to the way, and joint heirs with Him in glory.
Let thy yeas be yea, thy nays be nay.
"Let others do as they may, but for me I will serve a LIVING God," who has shown in man
- ALL men, everywhere - that image of the Creator, in that the soul
may grow in grace, in knowledge, in peace, in harmony, in understanding.
Be ye doers of the word; not hearers only.
Thus ye become the door that the WAY, the Christ, the Savior, may enter in;
For HE IS the way, the truth, and the light.
(Q) As it was given in the last reading "Let none be afraid,"
clarify and explain the cause of fear and tell us how one seeking to awaken the soul forces may conquer same.
(A) SELF awareness, SELFISHNESS, is that that makes men afraid.
The awareness of the necessities of the carnal forces in a material world seeking their gratification.
Know ye not that whether ye live or die ye live or die in the Lord?
As He gave, "If thine eye offend, pluck it out. If thine hand lead thee in error, cut it off."
When one has set the ideal, and knows what the ideal represents,
and then knows self measured by the ideal, one sees, is aware of
that lacking or that overdone in self, and plucks it out,
and beholds NOT the mote that is in his brother's eye
but considers rather the beam that is in his own eye.
Then, when one is set in the manners that there is fear cast aside by the wholly relying upon His promise,
one may demand that to be fulfilled in that He said,
"He knoweth what ye have need of before ye have asked,"
and he that trusteth in Him, though the heavens may fall,
though the earth may pass away, His word faileth not;
yet MEN act rather as if all depended upon whether tomorrow was the day of reckoning.
Know ye not that he that watches lest his own feet stumble is in the way that the Father, the Son,
may guide day by day?
Not that ye would sit and wait for the morrow, but use that opportunity, that privilege, that birthright, that promise, TODAY!
Be joyous in the labor that is before thee! Be the BEST of whatever position thou doth occupy;
as a wife, the best WIFE in the whole community;
as a friend, the BEST friend;
and there is the friend that sticketh closer than the brother;
yea, the friend that gives rather his life for a friend.
Ever gave ye the truths that thine brother might enjoy even a moment's rest in the Lord?
Peace be to him, peace IS with them, contentment is in thine hand,
that becomes not afraid, but trusts rather in Him.
(Q) : Please give me a message on THE OPEN DOOR, that I may contribute to the lesson.
(A) Learn first that lesson of cooperation.
Become less and less selfish, and more and more selfless in Him.
Be not afraid to be made fun of to become aware of His presence,
that self may be a channel through which the glory of the Father
may come unto men in a manner that all may know there is a glory, even an Israel, of the Lord.
(Q) Is there any message for the group as a whole at this time?
(A) Be patient, long-suffering, bearing one another's burdens.
Be joyous in the Lord.
Be not tempestuous in manner, thought, act or deed; rather SERVING in humbleness of spirit.
Enjoy the labors.
Enjoy those things that make for the unison of thought in Him,
knowing ye have been called, and that
"By HIS power I, as a member of such a group,
called to give myself first,
called that self may become a channel,
called that I as an individual may cooperate with my brother EVERYWHERE
in making known the joyous words of the Lord;
"for the Lord is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silent.
Who IS this Lord?
Where is His temple?
Know ye not that your bodies are the living temple,
holy and acceptable unto Him, would ye walk in His ways?
HARK! O YE CHILDREN OF MEN!
BOW THINE HEADS, YE SONS OF MEN:
FOR THE GLORY OF THE LORD IS THINE,
WILL YE BE FAITHFUL TO THE TRUST
THAT IS PUT IN EACH OF YOU!
KNOW IN WHOM YE HAVE BELIEVED!
KNOW THAT HE IS LORD OF ALL, AND
HIS WORD FAILETH NOT TO THEM THAT
ARE FAITHFUL DAY BY DAY: FOR I,
MICHAEL, WOULD PROTECT THOSE THAT
SEEK TO KNOW HIS FACE!
(A) In the preparation of self for this lesson, there are many material and mental conditions
that the body must correlate, that there be the proper understanding of the open door
being a positive activity for self; something to do, something to be done,
that there be those activities in accord with the lessons that have prepared self for the same.
(A) The visions of self's meditations do draw to the consciousness of self
the open door to the understanding, and interpretation of,
activities in the lives of those whom the body contacts day by day.
In the actions of self, be not afraid to declare His walks with thee in thy meditation.
(A) As there is put into activity that gained, and as self looks onward, upward,
there comes the clarifying of the way in the consciousness of self.
There IS the growth in self.
Be not weary in well-doing.
(A) As those determinations in self are set in Him,
as the door is opened that He may walk with thee,
so will that promise as given come to mean more in the experience of self;
For "My yoke IS easy, my burden is light. If ye love me, keep my commandments,
that I may abide WITH thee, that the way may not be shadowed by doubts
or fears that make for faltering steps."
Keep in the light, that the promises may be fulfilled in thee,
that there may be that closer communion with those that seek to know Him face to face.
(A) As there is the experiencing of the varied temperaments of associations with the truth
that is in Him, so may the self come to know the full answer as from old,
"Is this not he of whom the prophets spoke?"
Keep in that understanding that makes for seeking to bring thy brethren close in that way, through the open door.
(A) In the application does the knowledge come of what IS to be accomplished by self,
in the step by step, line by line, that others may know of that promise
that IS to each individual that may be one with Him.
Be not unmindful that those met in the way are seekers also, and are the Israel of the Lord.
(A) As there is given those presentations from day to day in the steps that are taken,
in thy OWN way does the knowledge, the understanding come of
"Well done, enter into the joys of Him who shows the way,"
For him that is called is also predestined for the activities of HIS kingdom.
(A) In seeking, in doing, in the meeting day by day,
let self be as naught that HE, the leader, the guide,
may be the better understood by those that look to thy activities;
For in Him is the light, and as there is the closer walk with Him
the way becomes brighter to all that would follow in the light.
(A) In opening the door there are those responsibilities, as well as those joys, in following in the light.
Be THOU the guide to many, that no stumbling block of condemnation be placed in the way of any.
WELL hast thou chosen in thine choosing, for HE is the guide.
(A) In the understanding of the open door, be mindful that HIS way is pointed out to all.
"Not my will but thine be done," even as He gave, "For this purpose came I into the world;"
the greater service, then, being that HE would have you be.
(A) In the application of those tenets, those precepts gained,
keep the knowledge that HE is the guide, "upon Him may I lean."
Though at times the way be heavy, or the storms such as to cause doubts and fears,
He stills the tempest, He brings harmony to those that are weary, and tired.
(A) Keep the faith that opens the door to Him.
That which is given as the next lesson must be IN HIS PRESENCE,
for "If His presence go not WITH thee, be not lifted up,"
and the meditation for all shall be with this lesson:
OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN,
MAY THY KINGDOM COME IN EARTH
THROUGH THY PRESENCE IN ME,
THAT THE LIGHT OF THY WORD
MAY SHINE UNTO THOSE
THAT I MEET DAY BY DAY.
MAY THY PRESENCE IN MY BROTHER BE SUCH
THAT I MAY GLORIFY THEE.
MAY I SO CONDUCT MY OWN LIFE
THAT OTHERS MAY KNOW THY PRESENCE
ABIDES WITH ME,
AND THUS GLORIFY THEE.
(A) Keep the faith of the fathers burning bright along the way,
for many will follow where thou leadest.
Open the door of thine heart, that He may abide with thee.
(Q) ['s husband]:
(A) Know in whom thou hast believed, that He is able to keep that way,
that door thou openest, that thy brother may see the glory of thy God in thy walks daily among men.
(A) In keeping the way be joyous in the glory of the birthright in Him;
For as thou hast OBTAINED mercy be merciful to those who falter
or seek to know the variableness of those conditions that cause fear
and trembling in the minds, in the hearts, of many.
Peace - Be still, that THY efforts be in the way as HE doth guide.
(Q) : Please explain what is meant by the secret place of the Most High.
(A) In understanding the secret place of the Most High,
let's determine what in the seeker is being sought;
whether the knowledge of the interpretation of the Most High's manifestations to men,
or that as determines the relationship of that manifested TO the Most High;
For as in the secret chambers of one's own heart are stored that
that makes for the real activities of that soul-consciousness,
so is the Holy of Holies where one meets with that they worship as their God.
(Q) : Please explain the words of the Master as recorded in the 21st chapter of Luke,
"Many shall come in my name, saying I am Christ."
(A) As has been given, many have arisen;
For as He gave in the same connection, there were many false prophets,
even those that would lead the very elect away.
There be those who, finding something of the power that is in the material activities
of those that would walk in the light, turn same into their own selfish purposes;
hence become false prophets, false Christs, and lead many astray.
Let's remember, there has been given the manner, the way to determine
as to whether such a prophet is of the Spirit of God or not.
They that deny the call of the prophets of old, or the burdens of the world upon the Son or His death,
His resurrection, are not of the spirit;
For "As ye have SEEN Him go, so SHALL He come."
As He overcame the world through the birth as one born in due season,
through those varied periods when necessity and the DEMAND of the Sons of God
brought forth those leaders in their proper places,
so He is that one that is given power over death, hell and the grave,
and in Him is the power made manifest in the consciousness of Him and His power in the earth;
hence we may see how the consciousness of His presence may be misconstrued,
when turned to selfish motives.
Know that even as the powers of evil are loosed for the correcting of many,
so are the glories of Him made manifest in the hearts and lives of many.
(Q) Is there a message for ?
(A) In that thou hast seen a light, be not dismayed nor frustrated by those things
that would hinder from pressing on to the mark of the higher Calling that is set in Him.
Fill each day with the love of Him, that may be manifested among those that self contacts day by day.
"As ye are faithful over the few things, so will ye be made lord over many."
Know in ALL things the GLORY is in the manifesting of His power in the earth.
