Messages of Encouragement for the Lesson on GOD AND HIS MANIFESTATIONS IN THE EARTH (262-58)
Let that THAT IS IN THINE HEART
BE MANIFEST in the ACTS of thine hands
and in the SPEECH of thy mouth day by day.
For from the ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART
THE MOUTH SPEAKETH, and
in the ACTS OF THE BODY
THEY SHOW FORTH
THE MEDITATIONS OF THE HEART.
KEEP IN THE GLORY of that
thou hast PURPOSED IN THINE HEART.
For, in the GENTLENESS OF THE SPEECH,
in the KINDNESS OF THE ACTIVITY,
THOU SHOWEST FORTH THE LOVE OF THE FATHER.
BE NOT OVERCOME of those things that would hinder,
but OVERCOME THE EVIL WITH THE GOOD,
and GIVE THE GLORY ALWAYS TO THE FATHER.
Keep thine heart and thine mind singing
IN THE GLORY OF THE MANIFESTATIONS,
OF THE BEAUTY AND OF THE GLORY
OF THE FATHER IN THE EARTH,
as thou hast seen MANIFEST AMONG MEN.
Look not on those things that appear
as stumbling blocks in the lives of others,
for - as he has given of old -
"I am persuaded that there is nothing in heaven nor in earth,
nor in hell, that may separate man from THE LOVE OF THE FATHER
and the manifestations of that love save man's own self."
In the GLORY OF THE LORD
and HIS MANIFESTATIONS IN THE EARTH,
be thou THE CHANNEL through which
some BLESSINGS may come day by day.
For in so doing may thou come to know more and more
how GREAT IS THE GLORY OF THE FATHER,
THROUGH THE SON.
For, as He has given,
"What ye ask in my name, BELIEVING, that I will give unto thee,
that the FATHER may be GLORIFIED in me and in thee."
Keep in the way thou hast set before thee,
IN THE LOVE OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE CHRIST
IN THINE ACTIVITIES day by day. Doubt not. Faint not in thine activities,
for - as He has given -
"If ye will draw night unto me, I will draw nigh unto thee."
And THROUGH THEE may there be THE MANIFESTATIONS OF GOD'S LOVE in the earth,
through the Father, through the hope, through the activity of the fruits of the spirit in the earth.
Let thy going in and thy coming out be acceptable in the sight of Him
who has promised to come and abide with those that LOVE HIS COMING,
LOVE HIS GLORIFYING in the earth through those promises
He has given into the keeping of the sons of men; that ye be kind, ye be gentle,
ye be in keeping with those things that thou knowest
in thine heart are well pleasing in the sight of the Father.
For, thus may the manifestations of that promised from the beginning be in THINE experience.
For, those that seek God and to know Him must believe that He is,
and He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
Let thine heart be glad in the things thou hast seen in thine experience
of the GLORIES OF THE FATHER THROUGH THE SON
in the lives of those that thou hast contacted day by day.
For, these are but naught, wilt thou
keep thine heart singing,
keep thine life pure,
keep thy ways as His ways.
For, He loveth and protecteth, and guideth and directeth those that call on Him in faith
- and NOT for themselves alone, but rather that self shall be effaced that the FACE OF THE CHRIST
may shine more and more in the lives of others.
Keep the heart singing for
the GLORIES OF THE CHRIST CHILD,
in the lives of the children,
in the lives of the grown-ups,
that thou meetest day by day.
For, in His ways are the ways of the Father.
For, as He gave, no man may do anything of himself, save as the Father in His mercy
has granted that THROUGH THE LOVE and
THROUGH THE MANIFESTATIONS OF HIS LOVE in the earth
may that increase of HIS MANIFESTATIONS come into the experience
and in the lives of those that seek to do his biddings.
Let thine life, in mind, in body, in soul, cry unto the Lord in weakness, and in strength
He will raise thee up.
For, as He has given, "They that seek in my name shall in no wise be cast out,
and he that giveth a cup of cold water in my name shall in no wise lose his reward."
Be not impatient that some glorious mighty thing has not been in thine experience,
for the experiences that thou has been awakened to the abilities
that may be MADE MANIFEST THROUGH THE LOVE OF THE FATHER, THROUGH THE CHRIST,
WITHOUT the thought of self, without the desire for self-exaltation,
only in such ways and manners may HIS GLORY BE WHOLLY SHOWN in thee.
Keep in the way that thou knowest to do,
For He requires not other than that ye BE TRUTH to that thou knowest in thine heart to do.
For, He calleth those by name that have named the name of the Christ and that keep His ways,
and through such may THE LOVE OF THE FATHER THROUGH THE SON BE MANIFEST IN THE EARTH.
In thine understanding and in thine closeness IN THE LOVE OF THE MASTER,
as He has called unto all that would know His ways,
there may come in thine experience those MANIFESTATIONS
that make known unto thine soul that thou hast been called to be A CHANNEL OF BLESSING to many.
For, as the LOVE OF THE FATHER IS MANIFESTED IN THE EARTH THROUGH THE SON,
so may self - becoming selfless in thy associations with those
that would bespeak of self-exaltation or self-glorification, for of such is it said,
"Though ye may do wonders in the earth in my name, self may be abased."
But those that GLORY IN THE LOVE OF THE FATHER THROUGH THE SON,
in SELFLESSNESS, may be exalted in the MANIFESTATIONS in the earth.
Let the words of thy mouth and the meditation of thine heart be acceptable in the sight of Him
that thou hast heard give,
"Though I go away, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there ye may be also."
And the GREATER LOVE AS WAS SHOWN,
"and Lo, I am with thee always, even unto the end of the world."
What greater MANIFESTATIONS could there be in the inner soul of anyone in a material plane
than bespeak those things of the Son of the Father in such a way and manner that those that hear may know
that thou hast indwelling in thine inmost soul the knowledge of the Father, in the Son,
and the LOVE OF THE FATHER to the sons of men!
Keep the heart true to those things thou hast declared in thine life.
For, as there is seen in thine walks in and before man,
so are the judgments of what thou thinkest of the promises of the Son.
For, as the SON would be GLORIFIED IN THEE, as the SON would GLORIFY THE FATHER
in the LOVE as He has SHOWN IN THE EARTH, abuse not those gifts that are showered upon thee
through the love of Him who has said,
"If ye will keep my commandments I will come and abide with thee,
and will guide thy footsteps lest thou stumblest."
Let THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IN THE SON guide thee.
Be not impatient, nor be thou longing for those things
that are other than THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IN THE SON
that may be manifested in the glories that thou hast had in knowing that thou hast been a channel,
thou art a channel, through which many approach the Throne of grace.
And they, as He has promised, that have saved a soul from sin, from perdition,
have covered a multitude of sins, and their robes are washed in the blood of the Lamb;
and He knoweth thee by name, and He calleth thee that thou wouldst keep the way
that many may know that THE FATHER THROUGH THE SON WILL COME TO THOSE
that SEEK TO KNOW HIS FACE.
LOVE GOD. Eschew evil. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR 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.
