Topical Study 95

PAPER 91 THE EVOLUTION OF PRAYER, Cont.

7. MYSTICISM, ECSTASY, AND INSPIRATION

[Paper:Section.Paragraph (page.paragraph)]

91:7.1 (1000.2) Mysticism, as the technique of the cultivation of the consciousness of the presence of God, is altogether praiseworthy, but when such practices lead to social isolation and culminate in religious fanaticism, they are all but reprehensible. Altogether too frequently that which the overwrought mystic evaluates as divine inspiration is the uprisings of his own deep mind. The contact of the mortal mind with its indwelling Adjuster, while often favored by devoted meditation, is more frequently facilitated by wholehearted and loving service in unselfish ministry to one's fellow creatures.

91:7.2 The great religious teachers and the prophets of past ages were not extreme mystics. They were God-knowing men and women who best served their God by unselfish ministry to their fellow mortals. Jesus often took his apostles away by themselves for short periods to engage in meditation and prayer, but for the most part he kept them in service-contact with the multitudes. The soul of man requires spiritual exercise as well as spiritual nourishment.

91:7.3 Religious ecstasy is permissible when resulting from sane antecedents, but such experiences are more often the outgrowth of purely emotional influences than a manifestation of deep spiritual character. Religious persons must not regard every vivid psychologic presentiment and every intense emotional experience as a divine revelation or a spiritual communication. Genuine spiritual ecstasy is usually associated with great outward calmness and almost perfect emotional control. But true prophetic vision is a superpsychologic presentiment. Such visitations are not pseudo hallucinations, neither are they trancelike ecstasies.

91:7.4 The human mind may perform in response to so-called inspiration when it is sensitive either to the uprisings of the subconscious or to the stimulus of the superconscious. In either case it appears to the individual that such augmentations of the content of consciousness are more or less foreign. Unrestrained mystical enthusiasm and rampant religious ecstasy are not the credentials of inspiration, supposedly divine credentials.

91:7.5 The practical test of all these strange religious experiences of mysticism, ecstasy, and inspiration is to observe whether these phenomena cause an individual:

91:7.6 1. To enjoy better and more complete physical health.

91:7.7 2. To function more efficiently and practically in his mental life.

91:7.8 3. More fully and joyfully to socialize his religious experience.

91:7.9 4. More completely to spiritualize his day-by-day living while faithfully discharging the commonplace duties of routine mortal existence.

91:7.10 (1001.1) 5. To enhance his love for, and appreciation of, truth, beauty, and goodness.

91:7.11 6. To conserve currently recognized social, moral, ethical, and spiritual values.

91:7.12 7. To increase his spiritual insight -- God-consciousness.

91:7.13 But prayer has no real association with these exceptional religious experiences. When prayer becomes overmuch aesthetic, when it consists almost exclusively in beautiful and blissful contemplation of paradisiacal divinity, it loses much of its socializing influence and tends toward mysticism and the isolation of its devotees. There is a certain danger associated with overmuch private praying which is corrected and prevented by group praying, community devotions.

8. PRAYING AS A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

91:8.1 There is a truly spontaneous aspect to prayer, for primitive man found himself praying long before he had any clear concept of a God. Early man was wont to pray in two diverse situations: When in dire need, he experienced the impulse to reach out for help; and when jubilant, he indulged the impulsive expression of joy.

91:8.2 Prayer is not an evolution of magic; they each arose independently. Magic was an attempt to adjust Deity to conditions; prayer is the effort to adjust the personality to the will of Deity. True prayer is both moral and religious; magic is neither.

91:8.3 Prayer may become an established custom; many pray because others do. Still others pray because they fear something direful may happen if they do not offer their regular supplications.

91:8.4 To some individuals prayer is the calm expression of gratitude; to others, a group expression of praise, social devotions; sometimes it is the imitation of another's religion, while in true praying it is the sincere and trusting communication of the spiritual nature of the creature with the anywhere presence of the spirit of the Creator.

91:8.5 Prayer may be a spontaneous expression of God-consciousness or a meaningless recitation of theologic formulas. It may be the ecstatic praise of a God-knowing soul or the slavish obeisance of a fear-ridden mortal. It is sometimes the pathetic expression of spiritual craving and sometimes the blatant shouting of pious phrases. Prayer may be joyous praise or a humble plea for forgiveness.

91:8.6 Prayer may be the childlike plea for the impossible or the mature entreaty for moral growth and spiritual power. [!!] A petition may be for daily bread or may embody a wholehearted yearning to find God and to do his will. [!!] It may be a wholly selfish request or a true and magnificent gesture toward the realization of unselfish brotherhood.

91:8.7 Prayer may be an angry cry for vengeance or a merciful intercession for one's enemies. [Jesus tells us to dare to love your enemies !] It may be the expression of a hope of changing God or the powerful technique of changing one's self. [Spirit transformation and enhanced wisdom and self-control and more !] It may be the cringing plea of a lost sinner before a supposedly stern Judge or the joyful expression of a liberated son of the living and merciful heavenly Father. [Amen !]

91:8.8 Modern man is perplexed by the thought of talking things over with God in a purely personal way. Many have abandoned regular praying; they only pray when under unusual pressure -- in emergencies. Man should be unafraid to talk to God, but only a spiritual child would undertake to persuade, or presume to change, God. [God is infinite will and Absolute -- eternally unchanging; this makes Him Absolutely Reliable and more ! He is our infinitely loving and sustaining and transforming Father and Real Friend ! You may pray to the Universal Father or our Sovereign Jesus Christ Michael or to Their One Combined Infinite-Holy Creative Spirit. All prayers will be sent to the proper Deity Persons by Jesus our Sovereign Universe Creator Who is fully God here with us !]

91:8.9 (1002.1) But real praying does attain reality. Even when the air currents are ascending, no bird can soar except by outstretched wings. Prayer elevates man because it is a technique of progressing by the utilization of the ascending spiritual currents of the universe.

91:8.10 Genuine prayer adds to spiritual growth, modifies attitudes, and yields that satisfaction which comes from communion with divinity. It is a spontaneous outburst of God-consciousness. [Wonder ! Joy ! Peace ! more ! Prayer often leads to worship and a personal Revelation of God's Presence and love.]

91:8.11 God answers man's prayer by giving him an increased revelation of truth, an enhanced appreciation of beauty, and an augmented concept of goodness. Prayer is a subjective gesture, but it contacts with mighty objective realities on the spiritual levels of human experience; it is a meaningful reach by the human for superhuman values. It is the most potent spiritual-growth stimulus.

91:8.12 Words are irrelevant to prayer; they are merely the intellectual channel in which the river of spiritual supplication may chance to flow. The word value of a prayer is purely autosuggestive in private devotions and sociosuggestive in group devotions. God answers the soul's attitude, not the words.

91:8.13 Prayer is not a technique of escape from conflict but rather a stimulus to growth in the very face of conflict. Pray only for values, not things; for growth, not for gratification.

9. CONDITIONS OF EFFECTIVE PRAYER

91:9.1 If you would engage in effective praying, you should bear in mind the laws of prevailing petitions:

91:9.2 1. You must qualify as a potent prayer by sincerely and courageously facing the problems of universe reality. You must possess cosmic stamina.

91:9.3 2. You must have honestly exhausted the human capacity for human adjustment. You must have been industrious.

91:9.4 3. You must surrender every wish of mind and every craving of soul to the transforming embrace of spiritual growth. You must have experienced an enhancement of meanings and an elevation of values.

91:9.5 4. You must make a wholehearted choice of the divine will. You must obliterate the dead center of indecision.

91:9.6 5. You not only recognize the Father's will and choose to do it, but you have effected an unqualified consecration, and a dynamic dedication, to the actual doing of the Father's will.

91:9.7 6. Your prayer will be directed exclusively for divine wisdom to solve the specific human problems encountered in the Paradise ascension -- the attainment of divine perfection.

91:9.8 7. And you must have faith -- living faith.

PAPER 92 THE LATER EVOLUTION OF RELIGION

Introduction

92:0.1 (1003.1) Man possessed a religion of natural origin as a part of his evolutionary experience long before any systematic revelations were made on Earth. But this religion of natural origin was, in itself, the product of man's superanimal endowments. Evolutionary religion arose slowly throughout the millenniums of mankind's experiential career through the ministry of the following influences operating within, and impinging upon, savage, barbarian, and civilized man:

92:0.2 1. The adjutant of worship -- the appearance in animal consciousness of superanimal potentials for reality perception. This might be termed the primordial human instinct for Deity.

92:0.3 2. The adjutant of wisdom -- the manifestation in a worshipful mind of the tendency to direct its adoration in higher channels of expression and toward ever-expanding concepts of Deity reality.

92:0.4 3. The Holy Spirit -- this is the initial supermind bestowal, and it unfailingly appears in all bona fide human personalities. This ministry to a worship-craving and wisdom-desiring mind creates the capacity to self-realize the postulate of human survival, both in theologic concept and as an actual and factual personality experience. [!!]

92:0.5 The coordinate functioning of these three divine ministrations is quite sufficient to initiate and prosecute the growth of evolutionary religion. These influences are later augmented by Thought Adjusters, seraphim, and the Spirit of Truth, all of which accelerate the rate of religious development. These agencies have long functioned on Earth, and they will continue here as long as this planet remains an inhabited sphere. Much of the potential of these divine agencies has never yet had opportunity for expression; much will be revealed in the ages to come as mortal religion ascends, level by level, toward the supernal heights of morontia [soul awareness] value and spirit truth. [Some Spirit-led humans are personally in Light and Life now ! Maybe in 50,000 or so years, the majority of Earth humans will be also ! Only successive divine visitations could speed this slow evolutionary process.]

1. THE EVOLUTIONARY NATURE OF RELIGION

92:1.1 The evolution of religion has been traced from early fear and ghosts down through many successive stages of development, including those efforts first to coerce and then to cajole the spirits. Tribal fetishes grew into totems and tribal gods; magic formulas became modern prayers. Circumcision, at first a sacrifice, became a hygienic procedure.

92:1.2 Religion progressed from nature worship up through ghost worship to fetishism throughout the savage childhood of the races. With the dawn of civilization the human race espoused the more mystic and symbolic beliefs, while now, with approaching maturity, mankind is ripening for the appreciation of real religion, even a beginning of the revelation of truth itself. [!!]

92:1.3 (1004.1) Religion arises as a biologic reaction of mind to spiritual beliefs and the environment; it is the last thing to perish or change in a race. Religion is society's adjustment, in any age, to that which is mysterious. As a social institution it embraces rites, symbols, cults, scriptures, altars, shrines, and temples. Holy water, relics, fetishes, charms, vestments, bells, drums, and priesthoods are common to all religions. And it is impossible entirely to divorce purely evolved religion from either magic or sorcery.

92:1.4 Mystery and power have always stimulated religious feelings and fears, while emotion has ever functioned as a powerful conditioning factor in their development. Fear has always been the basic religious stimulus. Fear fashions the gods of evolutionary religion and motivates the religious ritual of the primitive believers. As civilization advances, fear becomes modified by reverence, admiration, respect, and sympathy and is then further conditioned by remorse and repentance.

92:1.5 One Asiatic people taught that "God is a great fear"; that is the outgrowth of purely evolutionary religion. Jesus, the revelation of the highest type of religious living, proclaimed that "God is love."

2. RELIGION AND THE MORES

92:2.1 Religion is the most rigid and unyielding of all human institutions, but it does tardily adjust to changing society. [!!] Eventually, evolutionary religion does reflect the changing mores, which, in turn, may have been affected by revealed religion. Slowly, surely, but grudgingly, does religion (worship) follow in the wake of wisdom -- knowledge directed by experiential reason and illuminated by divine revelation. [!!]

92:2.2 Religion clings to the mores; that which was is ancient and supposedly sacred. For this reason and no other, stone implements persisted long into the age of bronze and iron. This statement is of record: "And if you will make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone, for, if you use your tools in making it, you have polluted it." Even today, the Hindus kindle their altar fires by using a primitive fire drill. In the course of evolutionary religion, novelty has always been regarded as sacrilege. The sacrament must consist, not of new and manufactured food, but of the most primitive of viands: "The flesh roasted with fire and unleavened bread served with bitter herbs." All types of social usage and even legal procedures cling to the old forms.

92:2.3 When modern man wonders at the presentation of so much in the scriptures of different religions that may be regarded as obscene, he should pause to consider that passing generations have feared to eliminate what their ancestors deemed to be holy and sacred. A great deal that one generation might look upon as obscene, preceding generations have considered a part of their accepted mores, even as approved religious rituals. A considerable amount of religious controversy has been occasioned by the never-ending attempts to reconcile olden but reprehensible practices with newly advanced reason, to find plausible theories in justification of creedal perpetuation of ancient and outworn customs.

92:2.4 But it is only foolish to attempt the too sudden acceleration of religious growth. A race or nation can only assimilate from any advanced religion that which is reasonably consistent and compatible with its current evolutionary status, plus its genius for adaptation. Social, climatic, political, and economic conditions are all influential in determining the course and progress of religious evolution. Social morality is not determined by religion, that is, by evolutionary religion; rather are the forms of religion dictated by the racial morality.

92:2.5 (1005.1) Races of men only superficially accept a strange and new religion; they actually adjust it to their mores and old ways of believing. This is well illustrated by the example of a certain New Zealand tribe whose priests, after nominally accepting Christianity, professed to have received direct revelations from Gabriel to the effect that this selfsame tribe had become the chosen people of God and directing that they be permitted freely to indulge in loose sex relations and numerous other of their olden and reprehensible customs. And immediately all of the new-made Christians went over to this new and less exacting version of Christianity.

92:2.6 Religion has at one time or another sanctioned all sorts of contrary and inconsistent behavior, has at some time approved of practically all that is now regarded as immoral or sinful. Conscience, untaught by experience and unaided by reason, never has been, and never can be, a safe and unerring guide to human conduct. Conscience is not a divine voice speaking to the human soul. [!] It is merely the sum total of the moral and ethical content of the mores of any current stage of existence; it simply represents the humanly conceived ideal of reaction in any given set of circumstances.

3. THE NATURE OF EVOLUTIONARY RELIGION

92:3.1 The study of human religion is the examination of the fossil-bearing social strata of past ages. The mores of the anthropomorphic gods are a truthful reflection of the morals of the men who first conceived such deities. Ancient religions and mythology faithfully portray the beliefs and traditions of peoples long since lost in obscurity. These olden cult practices persist alongside newer economic customs and social evolutions and, of course, appear grossly inconsistent. The remnants of the cult present a true picture of the racial religions of the past. Always remember, the cults are formed, not to discover truth, but rather to promulgate their creeds. [Many churches and religious groups try to spiritually enslave all members with their humanly authoritative rigid, primitive, false doctrines ! Now the battle is over removing barbaric "blood atonement", and going in our loving Father God's Spirit into greater "at-One-ment". Most churches today have overcome the great Theological error of believing in "Hell-fire and damnation" for all slightly or greatly wicked humans. Jesus is all-powerful to really seek and save all lost humans who so desire same ! See now Jesus' Words in John 12:32 There, they are exact and True ! Teaching this Truth does lift up Jesus in the minds of more men and women !]

92:3.2 Religion has always been largely a matter of rites, rituals, observances, ceremonies, and dogmas. It has usually become tainted with that persistently mischief-making error, the chosen-people delusion. The cardinal religious ideas of incantation, inspiration, revelation, propitiation, repentance, atonement, intercession, sacrifice, prayer, confession, worship, survival after death, sacrament, ritual, ransom, salvation, redemption, covenant, uncleanness, purification, prophecy, original sin -- they all go back to the early times of primordial ghost fear. [Some spiritually unintelligent humans, even in so-called "modern societies", still believe in ghosts, spooks, zombies, demons, etc. This Epochal Revelation has stated: "Unreasoned fear is a master intellectual FRAUD practiced upon the evolving mortal soul."]

92:3.3 Primitive religion is nothing more nor less than the struggle for material existence extended to embrace existence beyond the grave. The observances of such a creed represented the extension of the self-maintenance struggle into the domain of an imagined ghost-spirit world. But when tempted to criticize evolutionary religion, be careful. Remember, that is what happened; it is a historical fact. And further recall that the power of any idea lies, not in its certainty or truth, but rather in the vividness of its human appeal.

92:3.4 (1006.1) Evolutionary religion makes no provision for change or revision; unlike science, it does not provide for its own progressive correction. Evolved religion commands respect because its followers believe it is The Truth; "the faith once delivered to the saints" must, in theory, be both final and infallible. [No ! No ! See and believe I Thes 5:19-21] The cult resists development because real progress is certain to modify or destroy the cult itself; therefore must revision always be forced upon it. [Today, the Catholic church must soon allow priests and nuns to marry and have many children or it will die out ! Islam is growing fast because they promote large families and teach their religion everywhere with conviction. ]

92:3.5 Only two influences can modify and uplift the dogmas of natural religion: the pressure of the slowly advancing mores and the periodic illumination of epochal revelation. And it is not strange that progress was slow; in ancient days, to be progressive or inventive meant to be killed as a sorcerer. The cult advances slowly in generation epochs and agelong cycles. But it does move forward. Evolutionary belief in ghosts laid the foundation for a philosophy of revealed religion which will eventually destroy the superstition of its origin. [We can help to remove the false fears and false beliefs in ghosts, etc. Jesus tells all humans to: "Fear not ! I AM with you always !"]

92:3.6 Religion has handicapped social development in many ways, but without religion there would have been no enduring morality nor ethics, no worth-while civilization. Religion enmothered much nonreligious culture: Sculpture originated in idol making, architecture in temple building, poetry in incantations, music in worship chants, drama in the acting for spirit guidance, and dancing in the seasonal worship festivals.

92:3.7 But while calling attention to the fact that religion was essential to the development and preservation of civilization, it should be recorded that natural religion has also done much to cripple and handicap the very civilization which it otherwise fostered and maintained. Religion has hampered industrial activities and economic development; it has been wasteful of labor and has squandered capital; it has not always been helpful to the family; it has not adequately fostered peace and good will; it has sometimes neglected education and retarded science; it has unduly impoverished life for the pretended enrichment of death. Evolutionary religion, human religion, has indeed been guilty of all these and many more mistakes, errors, and blunders; nevertheless, it did maintain cultural ethics, civilized morality, and social coherence, and made it possible for later revealed religion to compensate for these many evolutionary shortcomings.

92:3.8 Evolutionary religion has been man's most expensive but incomparably effective institution. Human religion can be justified only in the light of evolutionary civilization. If man were not the ascendant product of animal evolution, then would such a course of religious development stand without justification.

92:3.9 Religion facilitated the accumulation of capital; it fostered work of certain kinds; the leisure of the priests promoted art and knowledge; the race, in the end, gained much as a result of all these early errors in ethical technique. The shamans, honest and dishonest, were terribly expensive, but they were worth all they cost. The learned professions and science itself emerged from the parasitical priesthoods. Religion fostered civilization and provided societal continuity; it has been the moral police force of all time. Religion provided that human discipline and self-control which made wisdom possible. Religion is the efficient scourge of evolution which ruthlessly drives indolent and suffering humanity from its natural state of intellectual inertia forward and upward to the higher levels of reason and wisdom.

92:3.10 And this sacred heritage of animal ascent, evolutionary religion, must ever continue to be refined and ennobled by the continuous censorship of revealed religion and by the fiery furnace of genuine science.

THE FATHER-SON-SPIRIT TRINITY SOVEREIGNTY OF JESUS CHRIST


The Trinity Sovereignty (Rule) of Jesus Christ
The Resurrected Jesus Christ.

Art Above: Our Resurrected Master Jesus Christ.
This was freely provided by the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS)



When Jesus had finished his earth life, this name of the Father had been so revealed that the Master, who was the Father incarnate, could truly say:

I AM the Bread of Life.
I AM the Living Water.
I AM the Light of the world.
I AM the Desire of all ages.
I AM the Open Door to eternal salvation.
I AM the Reality of endless life.
I AM the Good Shepherd.
I AM the Pathway of Infinite perfection.
I AM the Resurrection and the Life.
I AM the Secret of eternal survival.
I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I AM the Infinite Father of my finite Children.
I AM the True Vine; You are the Branches.
I AM the Hope of all who know the Living Truth.
I AM the Living Bridge from one world to another.
I AM the Living Link between time and eternity.

Thus did Jesus enlarge the Living Revelation of the name of God to all generations. As Divine love reveals the nature of God, eternal Truth discloses His Name in ever-enlarging proportions.

From sacred personal spiritual experiences in God and in Jesus, in 1977 and forevermore, Brother Dave adds these ongoing truths:

I AM the Universal Father of infinite love.
I AM the Eternal Son of saving grace and lavish mercy.
I AM the Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth of unending Ministry to all.
I AM One in Spirit upon all Humans; You each and all are now called to be One Brotherhood in Me.
I AM Your Father; You are My Beloved Son ...

Thank You, my God and Father-Son Jesus, for coming way down here, from Your Eternal, Divine Perfection Spheres of Glory, to briefly Incarnate as an nearly obscure "Babe of Bethlehem" -- to surely (eventually) bring us all into Your True and Pure Light and Life !
Thank You for the Gift of final Paradise peace - even Your peace ...


QUESTION: How is this Pure Christians Led By Jesus or Jesusonian Christians group or church different from other Christian churches?


ANSWER by Teacher Brother Dave: First of all, we are personally God-conscious Jesusonian Christians who do not have a church. Some of us choose to have a Home Church or Christian Fellowship Group in our homes. They all choose their independent names. We do not follow any human Theologian, minister, or priest; we choose to follow our Sovereign Savior Jesus Christ Who is fully here as He the Father-Son Spirit of Truth and One with the ever-present Holy Spirit. We also each have, as all normal humans do have, the pure spirit Essence of God the Universal Father within us. Thus we are led by God Transcendent and Immanent, and They are One in Spirit and Eternal purpose. Thus we are fully trans-ecclesiastical and trans-denominational. We believe in ever-continuing Revelation, both Epochal-Revelation and auto-Revelation (personal Revelation). We have no central human organization, no tithes, no dues. No rigid, dogmatic, crystallized "creeds" or fixed "doctrines".

However, I will briefly list a few differences we all tend to believe: We are eclectic in selecting the most true and spiritual Bible verses. I tend to use the Gospel of John far more than any of the other books in the Bible. I stress John 1:1-18; 12:31-32, chapters 16 and 17 the most. I choose to reject much of the Old Testament as being inferior in it's portrayal of the true, loving and merciful nature of God. The two Isaiah prophets do have some more spiritual and better views of God than most other Old Testament books. Isa 9:6 is a true reference to Jesus Christ. We do not believe in a literal hell and do not believe in blood atonement doctrines. Jesus Christ will draw all humans after their physical death up for a final loving and merciful judgment John 12:32. Those humans who then absolutely and finally reject the salvation Plan of Jesus will then be instantly and painlessly extinguished forevermore. That is the "second death" or "final death" mentioned in the Bible.

CURRENT NEWS ISSUES OF SPIRITUAL IMPORTANCE

THERE ARE NO "END TIMES" ! See Eph 3:21 Glory to God and Jesus ! "World without end". And several places in the Bible where it states that God has established this world in his loving care; and this earth shall abide forever ! This is the planet upon which our Creator Son of God Jesus Christ won unconditional Sovereignty here in this universe of his making ! Only false human beliefs here are having sudden "end times". The end of errors and fears is now at hand !

NO "APOCALYPSE" ! (in the sense of bad things here to happen) There are just ever continuing epochal- and auto-Revelations by He the Spirit of Truth WHO IS JESUS always here in Spirit upon all humans worldwide ! See John 16:7-16

NO "ARMAGEDDON" In Jesus IT IS FINISHED ! See Rev 21:3-7 and others. JESUS WON in AD30 and forevermore ! This word "Armageddon" only appears one time in the Bible; and Jesus never mentioned that ! Actually, about 300,000 years ago, there was a local battle in N. Africa, named "Armageddon" that did destroy two races of mankind there over 95%. But the number of humans on this planet and in this large universe continues to steadily increase -- to infinity -- no problem; as God is Infinite and His Paradise Home is Infinite in size; and God also has Divine Capacity to support an infinity of infinite sized universes and beyond.

TRUE GOOD NEWS !! (and on all human "fear trips")

FOLLOW JESUS HERE NOW IN SPIRIT AND FEAR NOT !

BE OF GOOD CHEER ! REJOICE ! AMEN !

PEACE AND PROGRESS, Teacher-Brother Dave

over 80% of modern war deaths are CIVILIANS

"Veterans' Day" November 11, 2015

On Veterans' Day, we honor our soldiers who served in combat. Many were terribly hurt or physically killed. In recent years, more recognition is being given to the larger number of Civilian casualties. We should remember to pray to our loving Father God, to honor all humans hurt or killed in man-made wars. All humans are destined to be with God and Jesus Christ in Paradise !

WORLD WAR ! OUR BATTLE CRY !

JESUS' Rule of War: Love your enemies,
do good to them, and make them your friends !

JESUS' Battle Cry: Peace on Earth and goodwill to all Persons !
(including all Children, Men and Women - as ALL are
Divinely Beloved sons of God in Jesus here in Spirit !)

Guerrilla wars/terrorism will not be stopped by mere bombs and guns;
only by many good Human hearts serving in the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
love-calling our Brothers into the Family of God.

Love, peace and progress,
Teacher-Brother Dave

"Attention...Now Boarding...Your Earth Departure Time is...?"


Monday, June 11, 2016


"The Poetry of Tim R Walls"


Many of us assume but how many of us know
when the day will arrive of departure time to go...?
Many spend their lives building empires of sand
You spend your life growing your soul in the mind of man

What are material things if you must leave them behind?
What is the value of your life if you spend it...maligned...?
You make such great effort at removing your disguise
Let it be said... "He worked hard...saw Jesus in his eyes."

This human life is so short; passes in an instant...
For so many...the great goal is always far distant...
For you...the great goal...is always this very moment
to distill the greatest soul value from the time well spent

What are material things if you must leave them behind?
What is the value of your life if you spend it...maligned...?
You make such great effort at removing your disguise
Let it be said... "He worked hard...saw Jesus in his eyes."

Time is short; live your life in proclaiming the great truth...
God is your Father; within lies the fountain of youth...
Drink of its waters... You will never experience death...
Love...the greatest reality; the spirit is your breath

What are material things if you must leave them behind?
What is the value of your life if you spend it...maligned...?
You make such great effort at removing your disguise
Let it be said... "He worked hard...saw Jesus in his eyes."

When all souls become your children...your daughters and sons...
you are nearing the moment...when the great goal is done
when you are...becoming one...with the spirit within...
When you are...your soul...your universe career begins...

What are material things if you must leave them behind?
What is the value of your life if you spend it...maligned...?
You make such great effort at removing your disguise
Let it be said... "He worked hard...saw Jesus in his eyes."

Author Bio

Tim R. Walls has been actively reading and studying The Urantia Book since 1971. He maintains a strong conviction that you must do more than just read and study the truths in the Urantia Book, you must lift them off the written page and allow yourself to drawn by the indwelling spirit of the Paradise Father, along the path of the spirit's choosing, a path that is likely to be the more difficult and challenging one, but the most spiritually growing and rewarding.

(Spirit of God within!)

and finally, because WE ARE IN HIM
(faith sons of our Father in Jesus!)

And so IT IS ....... AMEN !
