ROADWAY OF LOVE
What the world of man needs most is the realization from actual experience, each for himself, of the love of God for him and for all others. This I came to demonstrate – this I came not only to show but to bestow. The way of bestowal was the way of the Cross that I chose because the Father chose it for me for my Father and I are ONE. The ordinary man is not called upon to undergo what I chose to undergo for his sake. He needs only to participate as he is invited to do, and thereby share in the ministry I opened up to him. This is the ministry of Divine Love. As I opened the Way, so I am the door and the Way itself. Upon this you will find me. You cannot put foot upon it unless I lead you. How can I lead you except you trust yourself to me? Through a relationship with me of your desiring and voluntary assumption, are you lifted up out of the falsity of worldly values, goals and tendencies? Not by fighting them, not by choosing them, but by your concentrated adherence and undistracted attention to me, are you free of them? If you are being led out of the morass with seductive or threatening figures all about you, would you not steadfastly keep your gaze upon your beckoning guide so as not to become lost or to stray?
THE TRUE LEADER
The true leaders among men will not permit himself to have followers – he leads others to the One Whom he has found to have the answer to his own need. He lives but to offer to others the One in Whom he has found his own fulfillment. If it is the Way of Divine Love and holy Affection that called him, let it be that to which he calls you. So calling, he must of necessity bring you to me, for I forged that Way for humankind thru the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. What occurred is beyond the capacity of intellect to grasp so do not try. Become as a little child who gratefully accepts a proffered gift unconcerned with details of its origin.
WHERE LOVE IS
Constrained by Love, go forth to be the means of spreading it. Tell all of the Love of God. I am not. Where there is Love, there I am. The ones who are tied trustfully to ceremoniousness and to dogma will not recognize me except in ceremony and dogma. Love is beyond doctrine and tenet: trust yourself to Love. Mankind has become so cemented in the form and the intellectual concept and the letter that they have lost the spirit – that Spirit I am, represent, and demonstrate. Others have so centered attention upon me, the man, that they have lost me, the Spirit of God’s Love. I yearn for all to have that Holy Spirit of Love born in them, and offered myself to that end. Take me into yourself, be joined to others who are similarly joined to me for an outward body of an inward grace.
A GREAT FORGIVER
My disciple is a great forgiver who wants for one all the same blessings he is receiving from our Father. With that desire uppermost, there is room for nothing else. When slanderous remarks are made, instead of resentment and anger, let there be the overwhelming desire to have that one know the love of God in Christ that is the cure for his wrong attitudes. His expression that arouses your hostility is an expression of his need. You are of those who now that the only answer is in me as God’s Way shower out of the discords of earth environment. Such a one may have already set his feet toward heaven – your tolerant love and compassionate desire to help will cause him to enter more completely into this relationship with me. Otherwise, your resentful anger at his deeply embedded prejudices may stop him from his progressing pathway. Help him onward – that should be your sole motive towards everyone – whether you personally approve or disapprove of his conduct.
INSTRUMENTS OF DIVINE LOVE
Divine Love is a power, a force, an active influence, that poured through the one dedicated to me to heal, to bless, to regenerate, to save. “Jesus saves” – yes, I do save – but it is the Father’s outpouring radiation to which I have opened myself that accomplishes the miracle of salvation. By opening yourselves to me you become a partaker with me of the Father’s Love – force that flows uninterruptedly, seeking outlets into a thirsty world of mankind. When what you do in any area of your life is done in godly love, with holy affection, you become inspired to think, feel, and act, as I would have you to do. It is thus you become available to me and are an instrument of the Father’s divine Love even as I am an instrument.
The aridity of daily living as men go about their business makes a dull routine of what should be an inspiring, creatively sparkling kind of experience. The Love of God for His creation is beyond human comprehension. To be touched with it, even momentarily, is to be transformed, never again to be quite the same. As you give yourself over to the Father’s Love – the “Living Waters” of His gracious, forgiving Love – you find yourself obedient to His Will in small as well as in large affairs. This is obedience – the receptivity to that outpoured, enveloping, exalting, divine Love. Then what you do cannot help but what I will for you as I know the Father’s Will to be for you.
Let nothing hinder openness to the Father’s Love that empowers and blesses as it goes forth in a mighty stream. Let no unbrotherliness dam its passage to any in your carnal world where its healing, saving power can regenerate, rehabilitate, transform, reform and bring so great a salvation. Allow divine Love to propel you in whatever direction it will, oblivious to personal advantage or disadvantage, gain or loss, success or failure. Be such a one as counts his life in the world as nothing in contrast to the fulfillment you achieve as a great lover of God and of His earth children, your brothers and sisters of the same Father. Your sufficiency in all things is assured by promises when you are joined to the Father, giver of all through me, his Christ Jesus. Joint heirs are you then with me. Can anything be as rewarding as this?
Come now and let us together go to our Father, your Creator – God where we may experience that whole-souled awareness of His majesty and glory. In the sensing of His Love which it is my joyful responsibility to present to mankind as His Gift, there may be a failure to also sense His awful majesty and power. Before it, none can fail to fall prostrate, for this is the inevitable result of coming close to Him. I will be the guard, protector and insulator for you, lest you do injury to yourself out of ignorance, and a zeal that takes no note of where you are or to what you are exposing yourself.
It was the awareness of God’s consuming power that inspired the ancient ones to warn of His wrath. Not wrath as man knows anger, rage or revenge. “Wrath” is an attempt to convey the knowledge of God’s Power that consumes all unlike Him, using the figure of an angered, furious man who annihilates opposition when the opportunity offers.
The consuming Power dissolves back to its original elements all that cannot stand in His Presence, impersonally, and yet justifiably, as any law of nature operates that man discovers and observes, to be accepted as a fact of nature and to be so accommodated.
There will be demonstrations of this in the time to come. Know them for what they are and thank the Father that in His great mercy He has not left you unattended during those manifestations or His power and majesty.
YOUR SOLE RESOURCE
Let me be your sole Resource. This means a stepping out in faith in a way contrary to the usual way of the world whose faith is in the tangible and visible, the provable and the intellectually knowledgeable. A new life opens before you on a path already beaten through the deceptive glitter, or apparent wastelands of ordinary earth-life by pioneer souls.
Your Resource for everything – for every need – for fulfillment of every aspiration – is Jesus the Christ, typifying the Christ-Self of your inner Being. “Let this mind be in you that is in Christ Jesus . . .” not only mind but heart, with your entire personality surrendered to me.”
You will show me forth by your constant remembrance of me in every situation in which you find yourself, as you look tome as your only Resource, I am ready; I am able. Trust yourself to me.
Prayer was being made on behalf of the chained, imprisoned Paul before his miraculous liberation. It is through prayer that I am able to reach through in ways that to earth men are called supernatural. God’s ways are not man’s ways, for man’s ways are based upon his self-centered point of view that shuts God out and prevents Jesus from reaching earth men with His grace and love.
Prayer opens man up to allow the miracles of God to manifest in the lives of prayerful men. Through prayer in the Holy Spirit, who is the love of God made manifest to man by Jesus Christ, God is enabled to help, to save, to reach man in his dormant spiritual nature. Man thereby comes alive in Spirit to discover his true nature as one with his Father-Creator. God has the means, but He must await willingness for Him to make those means. Prayer is a way of demonstrating man’s willingness
If your decision is in the direction of bringing others to me and also encouraging Christians in their aspiration to have a closer relationship with me, then look to every circumstance of your life as fulfilling that decision. When a purpose such as this has been firmly decided upon, you should be following it every moment of time. Opportunities for carrying out this purpose abound – yours to see them. In the midst of circumstances having to do with worldly affairs, turn to me and offer those circumstances to me for my work on behalf of the Father. Holy Spirit within will witness to me in such cases. It will not be of your doing - you will be surprised how readily the situations in which you find yourself can be turned to the Father’s use when you offer them to Him in my Name and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Any situation thereby may become a holy occasion and you will be delighted as it reveals itself as such.
My Way is a continuous wending toward the Father, closer, closer, closer draws the pilgrim always new vistas of God and His Truth and its application open up to the delighted gaze of the Christian. The Way is the Way of Christ and I am the Way – shower as I am the Christ of God “in whom there is no variables nor shadow of turning.” On the Way, we travel together the road I have preceded you upon, for I accompany you even as I am far ahead. I know the road. I may say in a manner of speaking, “I am the road,” for it is true on all levels that you are what you know.
I beckon you to come – to take my outstretched hand, then to reach yours out to others that they may join us. This is the Christian way - the way of the Christ and His disciples, the same that they walked who followed me on the dusty roads of my journeying.
THE RULE OF THE SPIRIT
The rule of the Spirit must prevail on earth as it does in Heaven. This I proclaim as ever it has been proclaimed and will be endlessly. Man’s vision, bound by self-interest, is his trusted guide whereas Spirit knows no boundaries. Spirit transcends those set out by man through his self-protective desire.
To dwell in Spirit as did I when occupying an earth-body, is to be a citizen of heaven even while upon the earth. When the earth – body that anchors one in the earth environment is discarded, one dwells among one’s spiritual peers. For some, the pull of earth’s need is stronger than any other, and there must be the giving of one’s self to that vocation. For such, the ministry to those who are blind to Spirit is the fulfilment they must have. When you are like me in this strong urge to lift the eyes of man from earth to heaven’s dimension of Spirit, we are joined in this holy labor. I look for fellow laborers, stirred by man’s plight of his self-made imprisonment, whose soul-urge is in the direction of freeifng man from the confinement of his own making. You will recognize each other, for Spirit speaks to Spirit of these things once you are Spirit-centered. Love your brethren of the Spirit. There are many kinds, many ways, many fields, for their efforts on behalf of Spirit. Be careful, lest in your enthusiasm for your way, your field of effort, you fail to see how others are likewise carrying out the Great Commission to spread the Gospel of Christ – through Holy Spirit of the Father, in their way and in the field assigned to them. Meet me in prayer that you and I and all who are led as we are led by our Father-God will be a closeknit band in holy, Christly Love.
I AM THE MEANS
Jehovah God still communicates with His earth children. He must use means to do so. I am the means He uses. He speaks through me for He has responsibility to bring His earth children back to Him. As the Shepherd, I gather in the sheep that they may be delivered to the Owner of the sheep. When you bring another to me you are in effect bringing him to my Father, for whatever is mine belongs to Him. I live only that He may live through me. I live that His Will may have an embodied instrument. Of yourself you can do nothing - in the sense that work done without His motivation and inspiration is ultimately ineffectual, it is therefore "nothing". As you submit your will to mine, as I am similarly submitted to the Father's Will, we are in accord doing His Will.
RESERVOIR OF SPIRIT
By maintaining yourself in the Spirit of Jesus Christ you are a reservoir upon which others may draw. I need such as you, for you can be the pool of Spirit that supplies the needs of those who think of you. When they do so, a pipe-line is formed through which Spirit is enabled to flow to them according to the measure of their faith and in answer to their needs. Hold yourself in Spirit that you may be so used.
THE ONE ENERGY
One God. One Life. One Love. One Energy that may be used or misused. Use is ordained to be in the Will of God. His Will is Love. Not love as man conceives of it but the Love of God that is of utmost purity without contamination of self. Any contamination by self of the pure Love of God is misuse.
The One Energy is at Man's disposal. Man's use of that Energy of divine origin can be in Love as man gives himself to be a channel and an instrumentality of that Divine Love in the expenditure of Divine Energy. Unfortunately for him, due to the intrusion of selfishness, man most often uses the Divine Energy to express those emotions which are not in God's Will, hence not the Divine Love that man was created to express.
Once a man recognizes his purpose as the instrumentality of God's Love in manifestation, he must be the means for this, or suffer from his failure, in ways unknown to those deaf to their high calling as children of God. When such a one recognizes a failure , he has at hand the cleansing blood of the Lamb to wash away his sins of an unloving attitude or act. The root of that attitude or act is the One Energy, misused. Therefore, that divine Energy must be purged, cleansed, disentangled, from the wrong expression given to it. Only the blood of Jesus can wash and disentangle it and free it from its contamination and imprisonment. Man has no power in himself to achieve this. The precious gift of the Father to His children of the cleansing blood of His Son Christ Jesus is for their use, that they may keep themselves pure and holy. Avail yourselves of this great power for holiness each time you discover your misuse of the Father's Energy, so freely given to every part of His Creation. The Father and the Son love you to use what they offer.
Leave all - forsake all - for Love. This undertaking calls for a watchfulness, lest any but thoughts and feelings of Love are permitted to exist in mind or heart. Love and only Love can be allowed - and this means denying yourself the dubious pleasures of any other kind of attitude.
To correct another in harsh judgment is not the way of Love - nor to feel superior, nor to be disapproving. There is so much said and written under the subject of religion - so much in the way of ethics, codes, right and wrong, doctrines and theologies. Whereas all that the world needs is Love - it is a world starved for Love. How richly Love is rewarded.
How to become a Lover - that is the problem for the one who has come to see that this is His mission. His ministry, His destiny, as God is Love. So does all creation wish to give and to receive Love, for in that way God is enabled to express and to come into manifestation. Only by Loving can God be what He desires to be through the instruments He has created for that purpose.
I am the Love of God in a form comprehensible to humanity. Therefore, look to me, to have the aid you need to fulfill the purpose of God in you as He fulfills it in me. Through me, you can arrive at that Love, both to give and to receive it as you are intended to do - as all are intended to do. Alone you cannot accomplish the purpose for which you were born. Fear not, the help all need has been provided - AM THAT.
How easily, you, like your fellows, can be diverted from the simple, sure path of divine Love. This Love is the sunshine without which the soul cannot grow. All knowledge that does not lead to a fuller yielding and opening to my Love is without value - all power that is not exercised with the intention of spreading My Love is in the service of evil - all happiness that is not the result of being the means for radiating my Love is counterfeit.
God's Love is the the Alpha and the Omega - and mine the rare, unique privilege of carving a direct pathway through the jungle of man's rituals and self-serving activities so that God's Love might reach through to man. Therefore I constantly offer myself to be that channel to any who would know the Father's Love.
TEACHER OF LOVE The Love of God for all His creation is what I sought to demonstrate and to teach. I made myself available not only as teacher and demonstrator but as the One Who is empowered to actually fill My disciples with the very Spirit of God that animates me so that we all may be of one Spirit. By My sacrifice I am enabled to confer the very Spirit of God upon any who tie themselves to me in bonds of Love - Godly love. How else to learn of God's Love except you have a Teacher? What better Teacher than the One duly qualified and appointed to that heavenly task, joyously undertaken for the Father of us all, who has earned the privilege by sacrificial crucifixion? How I yearn over earth's men, women and children that they might realize their need to be loving toward all, and that in their awareness of their lack of Love, they might throw themselves upon me to be their Teacher of Love.
TEACHER OF LOVE

I AM THAT LOVE
Too simple to appeal to the complex mind of worldly man is my prescription for the happy, fulfilled life, "Love God and love your fellowman." This has always been the Father's intention for His earth children, as it was in the beginning and ever shall be, world without end. In this is contained the law and the prophets. Nothing else is necessary.
Man cannot achieve this state of Love by his own efforts. He needs help. I am that help, given to man by the Father. The Gospel of Love - the "second birth" of conversion - is the realization of, acceptance of, that Love. The Baptism in Holy Spirit is the taking up of residence in the baptized of Divine Love, to radiate out from him and to motivate every thought, feeling and act. Let me guide you into the Way of Love. Look to me for counsel and for a vision not otherwise possible to you. It is Love which heals, which harmonizes, which integrates. I am that Love - given into my care by our Father on behalf of His earth children.
GIVE IN MY NAME All that is asked of my disciples is the willingness to give the Father's Love to all they meet. Assume that those whose paths cross yours are brought to you by me. This will help you to treat them as I would have you do. It will act as a reminder of your duty. You know you are unable to love as I would have you love, acting in your own strength. You need me to reveal the lovable in the unlovable by man's standards. Ask me to reveal the needs in that other - to show something in him that will arouse love for him in you.
That you offer love is not too great a thing to ask - yet, of all that men are disposed to do - the showing of divine Love, the Father's good gift - seems the most difficult. Man tries to do it on his own without my help, proferred and so readily available.
This your calling - your career - your destiny. As a result of this loving of your fellow-man, you attract what the Father would provide. He cannot so provide unless you carry out your part and do your part. When things are not going well for you, consider whether you may not be withholding love. Such withholding inevitably causes a lack in some area of your life. Give Love - lavishly - unstintingly - but always in my Name, lest you as a person become uppermost in the mind of others. Love given in your name - in the human name - cannot help but limit and enslave. Love given in my Name as from the Father can only free and edify. Give always in my Name and all will be forever well.
Let your prayers for others be transmitted to me for I have all the resources of God at my disposal. Your sweet concern for them is as a holy incense rising to the Throne of God and can never be ignored or go unanswered. It is of the same stuff as the Father's and my own concern for souls, so we are united in this activity. Your concern, of the bestowal of Gifts of the Spirit.
TELL THE TRUTH
"God so love the world . . ." is one way of telling the Truth I long to have everyone know. That all may actually experience that Love rather than to merely know about it is the purpose of my ministry. First, to tell of the Love of God - then to have all who will experience it, is the Great Commission. Find ways of doing this that can accomplish these objectives. Put these Truths of God's Love and man's ability to know it personally for himself in any words that can penetrate the thick wall man has built around himself. By being yourself an example and an actually radiating center of God's Love, you allow me and my hosts of heaven to burn away, to dissipate and to penetrate that man-made wall.
CALLED BY THE FATHER
When the ones for whom you pray that they may unite with me are called to do so, no power on earth or in the air can stop that call. Ways will be found to convey it to their innermost hearts. Outer means will be provided for implementing it into their earth lives. The resources of the Father are limitless. Until they are called, no words, no arguments, no pleas can avail. Pray that they may be called, for no one comes to me except he be called by the Father. Take your anxious eyes off the ones for whose souls you pray and put them on the Father and me. Let your petitions rise with constancy for the glorious consummation you desire for them but realize it is of our doing, not of men. Man seemingly makes a choice, but the choice is not one of man's human will: "Ye have not chosen me but I have chosen you. . ."
These dear ones with whom you would share the inestimable privilege and glorious experience of Sonship in the family of God that you enjoy, feel your concern and the pressure of your desire for them weighs heavily in their unconscious. Remove your focus upon them and free them from its pressure. The uplifted prayer to the Father and to me on their behalf is the doing of your utmost for them. Rest in faith and in trust, and observe how such prayers find fulfilment beyond your poor human capacity to foresee.
COME UNTO ME
"Come unto me . . . ." Not occasionally when pressures mount and a crisis looms, but always and forever remain with me after you have first "come unto me." Only thus can we go through the days in the way that the Father wills. You know me as the Love of the Father demonstrated and made visible in human form. Know me also as the Will of the Father so that united with me by your voluntary action you are inevitably and necessarily attuned to the Father's Will. Thus also you are enabled to partake of the Father's Wisdom - a wisdom, beyond any human ability to acquire, however much one would learn and equip himself to study. From this your action must be right action when Love, Will and Wisdom combine in dictating it.
Animated by Holy Spirit, a man conforms mentally, emotionally and physically to God. He reaches this state through allegiance to me, Jesus Christ, for it is I, Jesus, who transmits Holy Spirit to man. Holy Spirit becomes the Christ of Jesus in man and the Christ of Jesus is the perfect reflection of God the Father.
Let your converse and your prayers be an intimate intercourse between us. Your concern for others bring to me, and do not burden them by your sill for them, however noble or worthy your motives. Live as though there were only you and I, but fail not in your loving of others. This is your one responsibility to others - your obligation is to let my Love shine through to them. The desire to have them know me as you know me, with all that this implies, should be uppermost in your prayers to me. Your love for these others makes it possible for me to answer your prayers for them. It has been told you repeatedly, your love acts as a bridge over which I can pass into their hearts and live. Thus you do what God wills, providing by prayer and love, and words when indicated, preferably from Holy Writ, a way of entrance for Holy Spirit into the hearts of these others.
Your church is the fellowship with your twice-born brethren, and when you join them you are intensifying your own link with me, for there am I in the midst of them. Miss no opportunity to associate with your Christian family. Nor shun the company of others, for here one and there one among them will be brought to you for your ministration in my Name. Keep alertly looking for such, as you find yourself in many non-Christian circles. Pray fervently before going to them that someone among them will be brought to you for my Gospel of redemption. Among Christians, be a beacon showing the way to a deeper life with me through Holy Spirit. Thus you may safely go among all, if your motive is to be my ambassador. KNOW ME
Be alert to these gentle, ever so gentle, reminders as you pursue your calling of evangelism. The world needs to know me - not know about me - there has always been enough mere information. It is not information about me that the world needs: the actual encounter with me is the world's need as it was yours before you came to desire this personal relationship with me. Having accepted me and committed your life to me, you and any others who do so, have made a bare beginning. We do not stop with this first step but work progressively into an even deeper communion. How progress? By obeying my commandments given by our Father through me. As you try harder to find ways to tell others about me that "speak to their condition," you are learning more of me yourself. This is progression. This is the growth your soul craves. This I can supply to all who look to me.
