PAPER 175 THE LAST TEMPLE DISCOURSE
175:0.1 Shortly after two o'clock on this Tuesday afternoon, [April 04, A.D. 30] Jesus, accompanied by eleven apostles, Joseph of Arimathea, the thirty Greeks, and certain other disciples, arrived at the temple and began the delivery of his last address in the courts of the sacred edifice. This discourse was intended to be his last appeal to the Jewish people and the final indictment of his vehement enemies and would-be destroyers -- the scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, and the chief rulers of Israel. Throughout the forenoon the various groups had had an opportunity to question Jesus; this afternoon no one asked him a question.
175:0.2 As the Master began to speak, the temple court was quiet and orderly. The money-changers and the merchandisers had not dared again to enter the temple since Jesus and the aroused multitude had driven them out the previous day. Before beginning the discourse, Jesus tenderly looked down upon this audience which was so soon to hear his farewell public address of mercy to mankind coupled with his last denunciation of the false teachers and the bigoted rulers of the Jews.
175:1. THE DISCOURSE
175:1.1 "This long time have I been with you, going up and down in the land proclaiming the Father's love for the children of men, and many have seen the Light and, by faith, have entered into the kingdom of heaven. In connection with this teaching and preaching the Father has done many wonderful works, even to the resurrection of the dead. Many sick and afflicted have been made whole because they believed; but all of this proclamation of truth and healing of disease has not opened the eyes of those who refuse to see Light, those who are determined to reject this gospel of the kingdom.
175:1.2 "In every manner consistent with doing my Father's will, I and my apostles have done our utmost to live in peace with our brethren, to conform with the reasonable requirements of the laws of Moses and the traditions of Israel. We have persistently sought peace, but the leaders of Israel will not have it. By rejecting the Truth of God and the Light of heaven, they are aligning themselves on the side of error and darkness. There cannot be peace between Light and darkness, between Life and death, between Truth and error.
175:1.3 "Many of you have dared to believe my teachings and have already entered into the joy and liberty of the consciousness of sonship with God. And you will bear me witness that I have offered this same sonship with God to all the Jewish nation, even to these very men who now seek my destruction. And even now would my Father receive these blinded teachers and these hypocritical leaders if they would only turn to him and accept his mercy. Even now it is not too late for this people to receive the Word of Heaven and to welcome the Son of Man.
175:1.4 "My Father has long dealt in mercy with this people. Generation after generation have we sent our prophets to teach and warn them, and generation after generation have they killed these heaven-sent teachers. And now do your willful high priests and stubborn rulers go right on doing this same thing. As Herod brought about the death of John, you likewise now make ready to destroy the Son of Man.
175:1.5 "As long as there is a chance that the Jews will turn to my Father and seek salvation, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will keep his hands of mercy outstretched toward you; but when you have once filled up your cup of impenitence, and when once you have finally rejected my Father's mercy, this nation will be left to its own counsels, and it shall speedily come to an inglorious end. [It was destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70] This people was called to become the light of the world, to show forth the spiritual glory of a God-knowing race, but you have so far departed from the fulfillment of your divine privileges that your leaders are about to commit the supreme folly of all the ages in that they are on the verge of finally rejecting the gift of God to all men and for all ages -- the revelation of the love of the Father in heaven for all his creatures on earth. [yes ! to all humans ! and for all ages !]
175:1.6 "And when you do once reject this revelation of God to man, the kingdom of heaven shall be given to other peoples, to those who will receive it with joy and gladness. [the rest of the world and even a universe !] In the name of the Father who sent me, I solemnly warn you that you are about to lose your position in the world as the standard-bearers of eternal Truth and the custodians of the divine Law. [of love and Life !] I am just now offering you your last chance to come forward and repent, to signify your intention to seek God with all your hearts and to enter, like little children and by sincere faith, into the security and salvation of the kingdom of heaven.
175:1.7 "My Father has long worked for your salvation, and I came down to live among you and personally show you the way. Many of both the Jews and the Samaritans, and even the Gentiles, have believed the gospel of the kingdom, but those who should be first to come forward and accept the Light of Heaven have steadfastly refused to believe the revelation of the truth of God -- God revealed in man and man uplifted to God.
175:1.8 "This afternoon my apostles stand here before you in silence, but you shall soon hear their voices ringing out with the call to salvation and with the urge to unite with the heavenly kingdom as the sons of the living God. [May 18, A.D. 30 -on Jesus returns here in full Spirit Power and Glory as He the Spirit of Truth pouring down upon all flesh worldwide ! See John 16:7-16] And now I call to witness these, my disciples and believers in the gospel of the kingdom, as well as the unseen messengers by their sides, that I have once more offered Israel and her rulers deliverance and salvation. But you all behold how the Father's mercy is slighted and how the messengers of truth are rejected. Nevertheless, I admonish you that these scribes and Pharisees still sit in Moses' seat, and therefore, until the Most Highs [Vorondadek Sons of God under Jesus] who rule in the kingdoms of men shall finally overthrow this nation and destroy the place of these rulers, I bid you co-operate with these elders in Israel. You are not required to unite with them in their plans to destroy the Son of Man, but in everything related to the peace of Israel you are to be subject to them. In all these matters do whatsoever they bid you and observe the essentials of the law but do not pattern after their evil works. Remember, this is the sin of these rulers: They say that which is good, but they do it not. You well know how these leaders bind heavy burdens on your shoulders, burdens grievous to bear, and that they will not lift as much as one finger to help you bear these weighty burdens. They have oppressed you with ceremonies and enslaved you by traditions. [Today, Christianity and all other organized religions do the same thing; but somewhat less as there is continual progress toward God's Light and Life worldwide. Of course the secular news reporters today seldom know and report things good, beautiful and true.]
175:1.9 "Furthermore, these self-centered rulers delight in doing their good works so that they will be seen by men. They make broad their phylacteries [two small leather boxes containing some scriptures and worn on the forehead and left arm !] and enlarge the borders of their official robes. They crave the chief places at the feasts and demand the chief seats in the synagogues. They covet laudatory salutations in the market places and desire to be called rabbi [master, teacher] by all men. And even while they seek all this honor from men, they secretly lay hold of widows' houses and take profit from the services of the sacred temple. For a pretense these hypocrites make long prayers in public and give alms to attract the notice of their fellows.
175:1.10 "While you should honor your rulers and reverence your teachers, you should call no man Father in the spiritual sense,for there is one who is your Father, even God. [Our Sovereign Savior Jesus Christ Michael is our Universe Creator Father and God is our Universal Father on Paradise.] Neither should you seek to lord it over your brethren in the kingdom. Remember, I have taught you that he who would be greatest among you should become the server of all. If you presume to exalt yourselves before God, you will certainly be humbled; but whoso truly humbles himself will surely be exalted. Seek in your daily lives, not self-glorification, but the glory of God. Intelligently subordinate your own wills to the will of the Father in heaven. [So doing yields peace, joy, wisdom and much more !]
175:1.11 "Mistake not my words. I bear no malice toward these chief priests and rulers who even now seek my destruction; I have no ill will for these scribes and Pharisees who reject my teachings. I know that many of you believe in secret, and I know you will openly profess your allegiance to the kingdom when my hour comes. But how will your rabbis justify themselves since they profess to talk with God and then presume to reject and destroy him [our True God-Man Jesus Christ Michael] who comes to reveal the Father to the worlds? [Jesus has made millions of human inhabited worlds. See Heb 1:2 "worlds" in the more accurate Bibles.]
[Jesus continues this important discourse describing in detail the many evils and sins of the Jewish teachers and leaders.]
175:1.22 "But even now I offer you in my Father's name mercy and forgiveness; even now I proffer the loving hand of eternal fellowship. My Father has sent you the wise men and the prophets; some you have persecuted and others you have killed. Then appeared John proclaiming the coming of the Son of Man, and him you destroyed after many had believed his teaching. And now you make ready to shed more innocent blood. Do you not comprehend that a terrible day of reckoning will come when the Judge of all the earth shall require of this people an accounting for the way they have rejected, persecuted, and destroyed these messengers of heaven? Do you not understand that you must account for all of this righteous blood, from the first prophet killed down to the times of Zechariah, who was slain between the sanctuary and the altar? And if you go on in your evil ways, this accounting may be required of this very generation. [the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple came 40 years later]
175:1.23 "O Jerusalem and the children of Abraham, you who have stoned the prophets and killed the teachers that were sent to you, even now would I gather your children together as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you will not!
175:1.24 "And now I take leave of you. You have heard my message and have made your decision. Those who have believed my gospel are even now safe within the kingdom of God. To you who have chosen to reject the gift of God, I say that you will no more see me teaching in the temple. My work for you is done. Behold, I now go forth with my children, [Yes, good news, all humans are sons of God made by Jesus !] and your house is left to you desolate!"
175:1.25 And then the Master beckoned his followers to depart from the temple.
175:2.3 How cruel and unreasoning to compel innocent children to suffer for the sins of their progenitors, misdeeds of which they are wholly ignorant, and for which they could in no way be responsible ! And to do such wicked deeds in the name of one who taught his disciples to love even their enemies ! It has become necessary, in this recital of the life of Jesus, to portray the manner in which certain of his fellow Jews rejected him and conspired to bring about his ignominious death; but we would warn all who read this narrative that the presentation of such a historical recital in no way justifies the unjust hatred, nor condones the unfair attitude of mind, which so many professed Christians have maintained toward individual Jews for many centuries. Kingdom believers, those who follow the teachings of Jesus, must cease to mistreat the individual Jew as one who is guilty of the rejection and crucifixion of Jesus. The Father and his Creator Son have never ceased to love the Jews. God is no respecter of persons, and salvation is for the Jew as well as for the Gentile. [and for all humans who will accept such a Divine Gift of free salvation ! See John 12:32 which is fully True !]
PAPER 176 TUESDAY EVENING ON MOUNT OLIVET
176:1. THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM
176:1.1 In answering Nathaniel's question, Jesus said: "Yes, I will tell you about the times when this people shall have filled up the cup of their iniquity; when justice shall swiftly descend upon this city of our fathers. I am about to leave you; I go to the Father. After I leave you, take heed that no man deceive you, for many will come as deliverers and will lead many astray. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled, for though all these things will happen, the end of Jerusalem is not yet at hand. You should not be perturbed by famines or earthquakes; neither should you be concerned when you are delivered up to the civil authorities and are persecuted for the sake of the gospel. You will be thrown out of the synagogue and put in prison for my sake, and some of you will be killed. When you are brought up before governors and rulers, it shall be for a testimony of your faith and to show your steadfastness in the gospel of the kingdom. And when you stand before judges, be not anxious beforehand as to what you should say, for the Spirit [of Truth, Jesus here in Spirit with us !] will teach you in that very hour what you should answer your adversaries. In these days of travail, even your own kinsfolk, under the leadership of those who have rejected the Son of Man, will deliver you up to prison and death. For a time you may be hated by all men for my sake, but even in these persecutions I will not forsake you; my Spirit will not desert you. Be patient! doubt not that this gospel of the kingdom will triumph over all enemies and, eventually, be proclaimed to all nations." [Yes, because that is our father God's will for this planet and our universe !]
176:1.2 Jesus paused while he looked down upon the city. The Master realized that the rejection of the spiritual concept of the Messiah, the determination to cling persistently and blindly to the material mission of the expected deliverer, would presently bring the Jews in direct conflict with the powerful Roman armies, and that such a contest could only result in the final and complete overthrow of the Jewish nation. When his people rejected his Spiritual Bestowal and refused to receive the Light of Heaven as it so mercifully shone upon them, they thereby sealed their doom as an independent people with a special spiritual mission on earth. Even the Jewish leaders subsequently recognized that it was this secular idea of the Messiah which directly led to the turbulence which eventually brought about their destruction.
176:1.3 Since Jerusalem was to become the cradle of the early gospel movement, Jesus did not want its teachers and preachers to perish in the terrible overthrow of the Jewish people in connection with the destruction of Jerusalem; wherefore did he give these instructions to his followers. Jesus was much concerned lest some of his disciples become involved in these soon-coming revolts and so perish in the downfall of Jerusalem.
176:1.4 Then Andrew inquired: "But, Master, if the Holy City and the temple are to be destroyed, and if you are not here to direct us, when should we forsake Jerusalem?" Said Jesus: "You may remain in the city after I have gone, even through these times of travail and bitter persecution, but when you finally see Jerusalem being encompassed by the Roman armies after the revolt of the false prophets, then will you know that her desolation is at hand; then must you flee to the mountains. Let none who are in the city and around about tarry to save aught, neither let those who are outside dare to enter therein. There will be great tribulation, for these will be the days of Gentile vengeance. And after you have deserted the city, this disobedient people will fall by the edge of the sword and will be led captive into all nations; and so shall Jerusalem be trodden down by the Gentiles. In the meantime, I warn you, be not deceived. If any man comes to you, saying, 'Behold, here is the Deliverer,' or 'Behold, there is he,' believe it not, for many false teachers will arise and many will be led astray; but you should not be deceived, for I have told you all this beforehand." [There are some serious errors in Matt chapter 24]
176:1.5 The apostles sat in silence in the moonlight for a considerable time while these astounding predictions of the Master sank into their bewildered minds. And it was in conformity with this very warning that practically the entire group of believers and disciples fled from Jerusalem upon the first appearance of the Roman troops, finding a safe shelter in Pella to the north.
176:1.6 Even after this explicit warning, many of Jesus' followers interpreted these predictions as referring to the changes which would obviously occur in Jerusalem when the reappearing of the Messiah [no mere nationalistic "Messiah" will ever come from Heaven !] would result in the establishment of the New Jerusalem and in the enlargement of the city to become the world's capital. [Never. All nations will eventually pass away to the one worldwide perfecting Brotherhood of all mankind under the Sovereignty of our God in Jesus always here in Spirit ! ] In their minds these Jews were determined to connect the destruction of the temple with the "end of the world." They believed this New Jerusalem would fill all Palestine; that the end of the world would be followed by the immediate appearance of the "new heavens and the new earth." And so it was not strange that Peter should say: "Master, we know that all things will pass away when the new heavens and the new earth appear, but how shall we know when you will return to bring all this about?"
176:1.7 When Jesus heard this, he was thoughtful for some time and then said: "You ever err since you always try to attach the new teaching to the old; you are determined to misunderstand all my teaching; you insist on interpreting the gospel in accordance with your established beliefs. Nevertheless, I will try to enlighten you." [Many Christians today are very confused with their spiritually puerile, negative ideas of "Armageddon", "tribulation", "Rapture of a few", "end of the world", etc. The old battle in N. Africa called Armageddon actually happened about 300,000 years ago ! Jesus never mentioned it ! It is just dead history.]
176:2. THE MASTER'S SECOND COMING
[Please peruse this very carefully, and the rest of this important Paper.]
176:2.1 On several occasions Jesus had made statements which led his hearers to infer that, while he intended presently to leave this world, he would most certainly return [He is here in his Spirit Presence everywhere !] to consummate the work of the heavenly kingdom. As the conviction grew on his followers that he was going to leave them, and after he had departed from this world, it was only natural for all believers to lay fast hold upon these promises to return. The doctrine of the second coming of Christ thus became early incorporated into the teachings of the Christians, and almost every subsequent generation of disciples has devoutly believed this truth [Yes, True !] and has confidently looked forward to his sometime coming. [Jesus Christ can and has returned in Spirit to earth very many times in the last 2,000 years; He is always here as He the Spirit of Truth since May 18, A.D. 30 -on. He will ALSO return as Himself in Person the many times here; but no human knows when before He appears ! hopefully soon ! Amen !]
176:2.2 If they were to part with their Master and Teacher, how much more did these first disciples and the apostles grasp at this promise to return, and they lost no time in associating the predicted destruction of Jerusalem with this promised second coming. And they continued thus to interpret his words notwithstanding that, throughout this evening of instruction on Mount Olivet, the Master took particular pains to prevent just such a mistake.
176:2.3 In further answer to Peter's question, Jesus said: "Why do you still look for the Son of Man to sit upon the throne of David and expect that the material dreams of the Jews will be fulfilled? Have I not told you all these years that my kingdom is not of this world? The things which you now look down upon are coming to an end, but this will be a new beginning out of which the gospel of the kingdom will go to all the world and this salvation will spread to all peoples. [What a Gift to all humans ! How many will accept eternal Salvation in and with Jesus ?] And when the kingdom shall have come to its full fruition, be assured that the Father in heaven will not fail to visit you with an enlarged revelation of truth and an enhanced demonstration of righteousness, even as he has already bestowed upon this world him who became the prince of darkness, [200,000 years ago, the deposed evil old planetary prince Caligastia. See John 12:31-32] and then Adam, [and Eve, 38,000 years ago] who was followed by Melchizedek, [4,000 years ago] and in these days, the Son of Man. [Incarnate here 7 B.C. - A.D. 30; now He is our Universe Sovereign God-Man Person !] And so will my Father continue to manifest his mercy and show forth his love, even to this dark and evil world. So also will I, after my Father has invested me with all power and authority, [all the power and authority of the Triune Paradise Godhead is here in our Master Jesus Christ Michael !] continue to follow your fortunes and to guide in the affairs of the kingdom by the presence of my Spirit, who [WHO, not an "IT"] shall shortly be poured out upon all flesh. Even though I shall thus be present with you in Spirit, [YES !!!] I also promise that I will sometime return to this world, where I have lived this life in the flesh and achieved the experience of simultaneously revealing God to man and leading man to God. Very soon must I leave you and take up the work the Father has intrusted to my hands, but be of good courage, for I will sometime return. [as our Glorious Sovereign Deity Person !] In the meantime, my Spirit of the Truth of a universe shall comfort and guide you. [just like Jesus !!! except you see no physical body ! Jesus our Creator Father-Son here as the Spirit of Truth is also fully one with his/our Creative Holy Spirit. Three On Paradise as our Two Universe Rulers and all as One Trinity Sovereignty of all Reality.]
176:2.4 "You behold me now in weakness and in the flesh, but when I return, it shall be with [Creator Deity] Power and in the Ppirit. [I see that as referring to BOTH May 18, A.D. 30-on as He the Spirit of Truth, and ALSO when He returns many times to Spirit-led humans as our Deity Person ! I am given to know his loving, powerfully transforming Spirit here upon and within me and upon all humans and beings in his large universe !] The eye of flesh beholds the Son of Man in the flesh, but only the eye of the Spirit will behold the Son of Man glorified by the Father and appearing on earth in his own name. [That can be NOW in Spirit and/or later in one of his future Personal Spirit returns if you are still down here and not yet progressing as an ascending Son of God up in the next higher Heavens.]
176:2.5 "But the times ["times" plural ! Do you comprehend this great Truth !?] of the reappearing of the Son of Man are known only in the councils of Paradise; not even the angels of heaven know when this will occur. However, you should understand that, when this gospel of the kingdom shall have been proclaimed to all the world for the salvation of all [ALL !] peoples, and when the fullness of the age has come to pass, the Father will send you another dispensational bestowal, [of high Sons of God under Jesus and high angels and superangels, etc] or else the Son of Man will return to adjudge the age. [It could be possible that a new dispensational bestowal will shortly come to earth around A.D. 2024 - A.D. 2030 as I suspect, if Jesus so wills. He Appears in Spirit to Truth-seekers worldwide when each individual human son of God is ready !! That is between Jesus and the individual human. Good news: There are two persons you can never run away from while on earth: God and your soul higher Self !]
176:2.6 "And now concerning the travail of Jerusalem, about which I have spoken to you, even this generation will not pass away until my words are fulfilled; [that happened just 40 years later !] but concerning the times [plural !!] of the coming again of the Son of Man, no one in heaven or on earth may presume to speak. But you should be wise regarding the ripening of an age; you should be alert to discern the signs of the times. You know when the fig tree shows its tender branches and puts forth its leaves that summer is near. Likewise, when the world has passed through the long winter of material-mindedness and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation, should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near. [Around A.D. 1935, at the time of this tremendous Epochal Revelation, it stated (see Paper 195) that the worst of materialism is over ! but now we have a much greater problem of fast increasing. godless "secular humanism".]
176:2.7 "But what is the significance of this teaching having to do with the coming of the Sons of God? Do you not perceive that, when each of you is called to lay down his life struggle and pass through the portal of death, you stand in the immediate presence of [loving ! and merciful !] judgment, and that you are face to face with the facts of a new dispensation of service [in God's grace !] in the eternal plan of the infinite Father? What the whole world must face as a literal fact at the end of an age, you, as individuals, must each most certainly face as a personal experience when you reach the end of your natural life and thereby pass on to be confronted with the conditions and demands inherent in the next revelation of the eternal progression [of you and other humans also !] of the Father's kingdom." [I know in the Spirit of our Father God that I am allowed to so explain and amplify Jesus' words in his Spirit and in the Light of the whole Fifth Epochal Revelation which I know well in Spirit and in Truth also. Don't just believe me; ask Jesus if this is True or not ! He is The Only Authority and as One with the spirit Essence of God within you !]
176:2.8 Of all the discourses which the Master gave his apostles, none ever became so confused in their minds as this one, given this Tuesday evening on the Mount of Olives, regarding the twofold subject of the destruction of Jerusalem and his own second coming. There was, therefore, little agreement between the subsequent written accounts based on the memories of what the Master said on this extraordinary occasion. Consequently, when the records were left blank concerning much that was said that Tuesday evening, there grew up many traditions; and very early in the second century a Jewish apocalyptic about the Messiah written by one Selta, who was attached to the court of the Emperor Caligula, was bodily copied into the Matthew Gospel and subsequently added (in part) to the Mark and Luke records. It was in these writings of Selta that the parable of the ten virgins appeared. No part of the gospel record ever suffered such confusing misconstruction as this evening's teaching. But the Apostle John never became thus confused. [Peruse and pray in Spirit for more comprehensions of John chapters 14 through 17. Note John 14:20-21 and 17:17-26 and Rev 21:3-7 and others ! Sacred Truths ! More on this is in this mighty Epochal Revelation also !]
176:2.9 As these thirteen men resumed their journey toward the camp, they were speechless [!!] and under great emotional tension. Judas had finally confirmed his decision to abandon his associates. It was a late hour when David Zebedee, John Mark, and a number of the leading disciples welcomed Jesus and the twelve to the new camp, but the apostles did not want to sleep; they wanted to know more about the destruction of Jerusalem, the Master's departure, and the end of the world. [We should pray to know more about God and Jesus as One here always with us and Their perfectly combined will ! Let us pray to be Spirit-empowered to do His will ! More on this will come next here.]

THE FATHER-SON-SPIRIT TRINITY SOVEREIGNTY OF 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 ...
Teacher-Brother Dave's Message of
"Holy Easter Sunday Reflections" April 20, 2014
"Many sincere Christians have believed in the resurrection of Jesus, based on the fact of the "empty tomb." It was indeed a fact that the tomb was empty, but this is not the truth of the resurrection. The tomb was truly empty when the first believers arrived, and this fact, associated with that of the undoubted resurrection of our Master Jesus, led to the formulation of a belief which was not true: the teaching that the material and mortal body of Jesus was raised from the grave. Truth having to do with spiritual realities and eternal values cannot always be built up by a combination of apparent facts. Although individual facts may be materially true, it does not follow that the association of a group of facts must necessarily lead to truthful spiritual conclusions."
"The true evidences of the resurrection of Jesus Christ are spiritual in nature, albeit this teaching is corroborated [made certain, confirmed, verified] by the testimony of many mortals of the realm who met, recognized, and communed with the resurrected Master, appearing in a higher form, and made visible to mortals. Jesus Christ became a part of the personal experience of almost one thousand human beings before He finally took leave of earth to return to the Paradise Father of All, to resume Sovereignty of this large universe of His making and Ministry."

"Holy Easter Saturday Reflections", April 19, 2014
Luke 9:22 [Jesus:] "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day."
Luke 24:7 [Jesus:] "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."
The "third day" was just a common Jewish expression meaning: "presently" or "soon thereafter". We know that the actual time between Jesus' physical death on the cross on Friday, and His Resurrection Appearances beginning on the following Sunday, was only about one and one-half (1.5) days. In All Truth, our Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ NEVER ever died in Personality, Spirit, Soul, and/or Mind; only his mortal Human physical body died ! IF our forever Living Creator God-Man Jesus Christ FULLY died then, this large Universe and You and me would all be FULLY NON-EXISTENT ! In Truth, we abide and progress into all perfection in Him; we are made and are forever perfecting in the divine Spirit Image of God the Father and God the Son. Our Spirit type-identity is JESUS our Creator Father-Son-Elder Brother; and thus also as God the Paradise Father I AM. Each of us may know in Finality: I am a divinely beloved Son of I AM; In Jesus I am eternally Certain.
HE IS I AM to us !
We need to realize-reflect that Jesus, now here in Spirit, as He the Spirit of Truth, also tells all of us Believers in Him - in our True God - that there really is no death for us ! Our perceived time of our sleep of physical death and our soul-form personality Resurrection up on a higher level, super-physical Mansion World, made by Jesus for our continuing perfection, is INSTANTANEOUS. Amen ! "In My Father's Home are many Mansions (worlds, higher spheres); I am preparing a place for You!" Thank You Jesus ! our True Light of God and our Life Eternal in You and the Father-Infinite !

"Good Friday" [or Evil Crucifixion Friday !] April 18, 2014
As most Spirit of Truth-led Christians know, many human teachings of past and present doctrines ABOUT Jesus and His Perfect Life and Divine Teachings are in serious error ! Mere human taught Christian Theologians, pastors, and priests still can not grasp much of the Deep Eternal Truths of Jesus and His Teachings. But God and Jesus, One in Spirit, do love them and are rehabilitating and saving them anyway --if they so choose such a perfect, glorious eternal destiny.
But a few, brave, sincere Spirit of Truth - Holy Spirit Born Eternal human persons here do know much more of the Real Significant Words of our Master Jesus which are partly recorded in the Bible. (Yes, also our Incarnate Jesus spoke many Words of Truth here from his Divine-Human ages of 12-30, none of which are recorded in the Bible; and much else has been left out, or mistranslated.) Let us now hear Jesus still here in Spirit ! (see John 16:7-16) Note well that this was said by Jesus BEFORE the physical, brutal murder by crucifixion of the human body of Jesus !
"NOW is the (loving and merciful) judgment of this WORLD ! NOW shall the (evil, iniquitous) prince of this world be CAST OUT ! And I, if I am lifted up from this earth, (HE IS RISEN ! IN SPIRIT IMMEDIATELY ! And in new body form for us to see again here in about 1.5 days. "On the 3rd day" is an old Jewish common phrase which just means "presently" or "soon".) I WILL DRAW (in Spirit) all Men, all Women, all Children unto Me !" (John 12:31-32)
Note well that our True God is NOT a stern, wrathful "vampire god" needing a perfect fix of pure, sinless blood of His Eternal Creator Son Jesus Christ before his alleged "wrath" can be appeased !! Please drop all of that false "Old Testament" scapegoat, lamb, blood sacrifice, atonement garbage ! (Very serious spiritual errors !) God is eternally loving and changeless - Absolute ! Jesus well knew that some very stubborn, non-spiritual humans of that time would reject His Truth of spiritual liberty and sonship with God freely offered to all ! But He willingly allowed all of this murderous human evil and demonic iniquity to play itself out. All sin does contain within itself the seeds of its eventual destruction; so fear not and even rejoice in Jesus in Spirit and in His Father-Son Truth ! Always know and share that GOD, the Paradise FATHER of all Reality, IS just as loving and merciful and kind and perfect as JESUS IS ! They Are One in Spirit; let us Truth lovers also be One in Him ! Now we continue with more epochal revelation on this for your prayerful reflections this Friday.
What Jesus is now about to do, submit to death on the cross, He does of His own free will. In foretelling this experience, Jesus said: "The Father loves and sustains Me because I am willing to lay down my life. But I will take it up again. No one takes My life away from Me --I lay it down of My Self. I have Authority to lay it down, and I have Authority to take it up. I have received such a Commandment from My Father."
Jesus soon appears to many human witnesses after His crucifixion and physical death. In one Appearance, our Resurrected, Living Jesus Christ said:
"Among yourselves, here, you share the knowledge that I have risen from the dead, but that is not strange. I have the power to lay down My life and to take it up again; the Father gives such power to His Paradise Sons. You should the rather be stirred in your hearts by the knowledge that the dead of an age entered upon the eternal ascent soon after I left Joseph's new tomb. [Jesus Raised into the next Heaven Mansion World all of the dead humans since the time of Adam and Eve !! (from about 37,000 years ago -on) And He will Raise you and me also !!] I lived My life in the flesh to show how you can, through loving service, become God-revealing to your fellow men [all mortals: men, women and children] even as, by loving you and serving you, I have become God-revealing to you. I have lived among you as the Son of Man that you, and all other men, might know that you are all indeed the sons of God. Therefore, go you now into all the world preaching this Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to all men. [Now Jesus prefers that we say "Family of God" or other proper words.] Love all men as I have loved you; serve your fellow mortals as I have served you. Freely you have received, freely give. Only tarry here in Jerusalem while I go to the Father, and until I send you the Spirit of Truth. [He was sent to us just a few hours later, in A.D.30; and He is forevermore here with us and as we ascend into Paradise-God !] He shall lead you into the enlarged truth, and I will go with you into all the world. I am with you always, and My peace I leave with you." [Thank You Jesus !]
Love, Peace and progress in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth !

Holy Remembrance April 17, 2014
"Holy Easter Thursday New Covenant of Communion"
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,
Sacred Communion with our Sovereign Savior Jesus Christ may be done with your Christian family and/or other Christian friends, just as and just where you are, and as many times daily, weekly or monthly as you and others are so Spirit-led. It is not required that you go to church and have a priest or minister conduct this as a rigidly dogmatic ritual. Be spiritually creative-imaginative and abide in the true spiritual liberty granted to us by the Authority of Jesus and not by ecclesiastical human authorities or "temple tycoons". "Priesthood of all believers in Jesus Christ !" Use grape juice or real wine or any suitable, agreed-upon drink. Then you may use bread, wafer, cracker, cookie, etc. Allow periods of silent time to pray, worship and reflect on the ever-continuing Gifts and Divine Majesty of our Creator Father-Son-Elder Brother Jesus. Then continue your meal and warm Family of God fellowship as you together so wish.
Let us again hear in Spirit the powerful words of our Master Jesus Christ.

ESTABLISHING THE REMEMBRANCE SUPPER
As they brought Jesus the third cup of wine, the "cup of blessing," he arose from the couch and, taking the cup in his hands, blessed it, saying: "Take this cup, all of you, and drink of it. This shall be the cup of my remembrance. This is the cup of the blessing of a new dispensation of grace and truth. This shall be to you the emblem of the bestowal and ministry of the divine Spirit of Truth. And I will not again drink this cup with you until I drink in new form with you in the Father's eternal kingdom."
The apostles all sensed that something out of the ordinary was transpiring as they drank of this cup of blessing in profound reverence and perfect silence. The old Passover commemorated the emergence of their fathers from a state of racial slavery into individual freedom; now the Master was instituting a new remembrance supper as a symbol of the new dispensation wherein the enslaved individual emerges from the bondage of ceremonialism and selfishness into the spiritual joy of the brotherhood and fellowship of the liberated faith sons of the living God.
When they had finished drinking this new cup of remembrance, the Master took up the bread and, after giving thanks, broke it in pieces and, directing them to pass it around, said: "Take this bread of remembrance and eat it. I have told you that I am the bread of life. And this bread of life is the united life of the Father and the Son in one gift. The word of the Father, as revealed in the Son, is indeed the bread of life." When they had partaken of the bread of remembrance, the symbol of the living word of truth incarnated in the likeness of mortal flesh, they all sat down.
In instituting this remembrance supper, the Master, as was always his habit, resorted to parables and symbols. He employed symbols because he wanted to teach certain great spiritual truths in such a manner as to make it difficult for his successors to attach precise interpretations and definite meanings to his words. In this way he sought to prevent successive generations from crystallizing his teaching and binding down his spiritual meanings by the dead chains of tradition and dogma. In the establishment of the only ceremony or sacrament associated with his whole life mission, Jesus took great pains to suggest his meanings rather than to commit himself to precise definitions. He did not wish to destroy the individual's concept of divine communion by establishing a precise form; neither did he desire to limit the believer's spiritual imagination by formally cramping it. He rather sought to set man's reborn soul free upon the joyous wings of a new and living spiritual liberty.
Notwithstanding the Master's effort thus to establish this new sacrament of the remembrance, those who followed after him in the intervening centuries saw to it that his express desire was effectively thwarted in that his simple spiritual symbolism of that last night in the flesh has been reduced to precise interpretations and subjected to the almost mathematical precision of a set formula. Of all Jesus' teachings none have become more tradition-standardized.
This supper of remembrance, when it is partaken of by those who are Son-believing and God-knowing, does not need to have associated with its symbolism any of man's puerile misinterpretations regarding the meaning of the divine presence, for upon all such occasions the Master is really present. The remembrance supper is the believer's symbolic rendezvous [spiritual meeting !] with Jesus Christ Michael. When you become thus spirit-conscious, the Son is actually present, and his spirit fraternizes with the indwelling fragment of his Father. [God's pure spirit Essence within you ! The future fully Spirit-perfected You !
After they had engaged in meditation for a few moments, Jesus continued speaking: "When you do these things, recall the life I have lived on earth among you and rejoice that I am to continue to live on earth with you and to serve through you. As individuals, contend not among yourselves as to who shall be greatest. Be you all as brethren. And when the kingdom grows to embrace large groups of believers, likewise should you refrain from contending for greatness or seeking preferment between such groups."
And this mighty occasion took place in the upper chamber of a friend. There was nothing of sacred form or of ceremonial consecration about either the supper or the building. The remembrance supper was established without ecclesiastical sanction. [You may have this Sacred Communion with Jesus anywhere and at any time; you may do this in your home or at any quiet place with your family and friends. "Priesthood of all believers."]
When Jesus had thus established the supper of the remembrance, he said to the apostles: "And as often as you do this, do it in remembrance of me. And when you do remember me, first look back upon my life in the flesh, recall that I was once with you, and then, by faith, discern that you shall all some time sup with me in the Father's eternal kingdom. This is the new Passover which I leave with you, even the memory of my bestowal life, the word of eternal truth; and of my love for you, the outpouring of my Spirit of Truth upon all flesh." [see John 16:7-16]
And they ended this celebration of the old but bloodless Passover in connection with the inauguration of the new supper of the remembrance, by singing, all together, the one hundred and eighteenth Psalm.
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.

I rose up out of my mortal shell...
when the frozen mindscape thawed...

every shadow in the hair’s turning flee...
your personality was all I saw...
dark, discordant thoughts be gone...
the soul complete--joined in unity...
"I am" the personality I saw...

The night air is filled

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.
We worship our loving Father God because HE IS (Transcendent !)
and then, because HE IS IN YOU AND IN ME (Spirit of God within !)
and finally, because WE ARE IN HIM (faith sons of our Father in Jesus !)
And so IT IS ....... AMEN !
