THE FABLE

ILLUSION, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ILLUSION

WHAT IS THE NATURE OF “THIS WORLD” WHICH JESUS OVERCAME?

JESUS IS THE LIVING BRANCH OF LIFE

THOU ART THE BRIGHT MESSENGER

I believe that the time has come for a fresh look at the New Testament without a veil (i.e., every concept or belief that we have had in the past through our traditional upbringing).

In 2 Peter 1: 16 we read about an incident that Peter, James and John experienced on the Mount of Transfiguration. Peter witnessed the Coming of the Lord and said, “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables when we made known unto you the POWER and COMING of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eye witnesses of His majesty.”

In order to understand what the Power and Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is, we must first realize what cunningly devised Fables are. 

THE FABLE!

1.  A fable comes from the word Mythos, (meaning Myth). 

2.  A Fable is a culturally based, subjective explanation or taught principle of observed Mysteries–formed by the unconsciousness as an archetype. It is the Adam dream. Can you hear this?  

Fables are carnal mind forms of imaginary gods: tribal gods known as Yahweh, Allah, Mother Kali, Manitou, etc.– all existing in the universal un-conscious as beliefs, or Idols, which cause the world to be in a destructive mode, even though they have no real existence. Since they are formed by the flesh mind, they have no substance or nature. Only “I AM” IS. 

The fable of life is derived from the tree of knowledge, which has formed itself as a false sense of identity that takes us away from our sense of belonging which we have when we know what we truly are in Christ Jesus.  The myth of physicality represents a feeling of nakedness, and that sense of separation causes all the trouble we see in our society today–expressing itself as disease, lack, guilt and fear of death.

All these expressions are fables of the unconscious, generated by a belief in personal sense living. As man is governed by the un-conscious past, he sees himself as a separate self from the Living Presence. That is the first serpent’s lie to God’s own image.  The truth is, we have never been separated from the life of God.  It is only this feeling of separation that causes man to think that he is a physical creature, formed out of the dust of ground. This is the second lie; there is no such man in reality; this man is merely an illusion. The sense of physicality is the problem. Your true body is not physical; your body is just as spiritual as God IS. It is the belief you entertain about the body that is the illusion.

Body is the temple of God, and it is spiritual and eternally in the Heaven of God’s ordination and can therefore never see death. However, religion in general has taken the belief of a physical universe as Gospel and vehemently holds on to this fable as being truth.  Like I said before, the body–and in fact the whole of God’s universe–is not illusion, o no!  The illusion is the belief we have entertained of the universe, feeling a sense of lack (which is but a delusion as we lack nothing in our true nature). The belief in materiality causes a veil to cover the true image and blinds us to reality.  Do you hear? The belief, for instance, that sovereign God formed man out of the dust of the ground as a physical image has kept the religious mind from seeing the reality of God’s True House, which is Christ.  Remember, Christ is the only substance of all form, which includes the body. Christ and Its substance is not physical.  Christ is Spirit.  Christ Jesus in His resurrection destroyed the myth of physicality, praise His Name.

Hebrews 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; 2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. 3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.  4 For every house is build by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Christ Jesus is now the House of God. Jesus is the nature and the image and likeness of God expressed as His House whom you and I are, which no fable is; it is Grace and Truth coming back to Creation. It is wonderful!

Christ Jesus is the Life giving Spirit, the Genesis 1 Christ Image, created in true holiness and righteousness–spirit, soul and body; against such there is no law.  Do you hear this wonderful message, all who read this page?

ILLUSION, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ILLUSION TONY?

Tell me, what is the reason why there is so much controversy in Christian circles on this subject?   Are you saying that the physical universe does not exist?  Is disease and death a reality? Did God create it?  

Well, let me first give you a definition as to what the nature of illusion is. The illusion of physicality does exist as the human mind. This illusion of life can exist only as your human reason, which interprets everything by what it sees, feels and knows through sense evidence–believing it to be reality. But this is not so–we cannot know reality with the human mind. What we can reason out with the mind and observe with our senses is not God’s Creation. It is but a lie, and must be cast down as a delusion of the carnal mind. The natural mind in all its so-called wisdom can never know what the true nature of things is, it is impossible.

[I had difficulty grasping the meaning of the following two sections and so combined them, but am not sure that I remain faithful to Toni’s meaning.]

WHAT IS THE NATURE OF “THIS WORLD” WHICH JESUS OVERCAME? 

All that we can observe with the mind is the illusion that we call “this world” and is of the nature of error. But this message of Life and Immortality is as old as God is and has come from the omniscience of God’s Presence. It is not new, even though to most Christians it is new and needs to be acquired–for most are asleep in a Mistaken Identity. Here it is: listen and discern what is real, spit out the bones if you cannot handle it.

Psalms 27:4-5 One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord, All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple, for in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle, He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

First, we must realize that this world, as we see it around us, the world we observe with the senses is made up of sin–(a feeling of guilt), disease, death, lack, and limitation; this world is made up out of a false sense of life, a sense of separation from God.  When Pilate said to Jesus: “Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?”   Jesus answered him, “Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above.” (John 19:10-11)

In other words, there was no other power but that of the Father; and all that God spoke into being is wonderful. There are no opposites to God’s will and purpose for Creation. Moreover, what did Jesus say to all the diseased, the sick, and the lame? “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.. . .. Stretch forth thine hand. . . . She is not dead, but sleeps.” He might as well have said, “These things are illusion; they cannot hold you. There is no power but God.”

Jesus had no magical treatment for any of their ailments, just a simple: “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. . . . Be thou clean. . . . Lazarus, come forth.”   To Jesus all this world was error, was illusion; and by knowing this, Jesus could overcome this world by proving that even death itself was but an illusion of material sense.

Therefore, the teaching of the Light of the World Ministries as it is being set forth in these writings teaches that all sense testimony is but belief; it is a lie of the senses, it is not law or ordained as reality. Whether it is in the words used by Jesus or by the Light of the World Ministries–all that which we see, hear, taste, touch, or smell (all sin, disease, or death) is not reality, but is Maya,  an illusion that consists only of mortal concepts, generated in the mind of flesh. The phrasing is not important. It is the message, the ancient Gospel of the reality of God’s Nature and Name and of course the unreality (illusion or delusion of sense testimony)–understanding its operation and understanding where it started is the important factor.

Universal Beliefs Arise Out of a Sense of Separation from God

People often ask me: “Tony how did all this sense testimony begin?”

Glad you asked. We have two stories in Scripture which tell us that it did begin, they tell us the manner in which it began; but they do not tell this mystery–at least not to the uninitiated–what made it possible for it to begin. The first of these stories is that of Adam and Eve. This is the allegory of where error or illusion started, giving us a clear picture as to what the nature of error is, at least to the ones who desire to know the truth.

Adam was in the Garden of Eden. He was there all alone, and in that aloneness he could say in substance:  “‘I’ and the Father are one. That oneness constitutes my completeness as I AM.  This ‘I’ (Awareness of Being) is the harmony and the all-ness of my being. Nothing can be added to me as health or wealth, nothing can be taken from me, I am complete in Christ Jesus. All that the Father hath is mine since ‘I’ and we are one. This One sense of being ‘IS’ in Heaven; it is Harmony, and it is eternal Life. One IS in heaven, harmony.”

Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness {blindness: or, hardness} of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true {true…: or, holiness of truth} holiness.

In spite of Adam’s being in Eden, or heaven, according to the story, Adam was lonesome and felt the need of companionship. Being in Eden, in Heaven or harmony, he had sufficient understanding to know that he could not get anything separate from himself. Therefore, it is recorded in Genesis 2&3 that Eve was formed from within Adam; Eve was formed from one of Adam’s ribs. This is of course an allegory to make us see clearly the illusion of separation. Notice, Eve was not an experience external to Adam–both the male (the cause of all things, which is the Father), and the Female aspect (which symbolically speaks of the effect, mistakenly called physical reproduction). Do not forget, Eve was taken from the rib of Adam, the substance of all life as “I” is the sperm of life. “I” in true revelation is the Word of God which came from within Adam, from the rib of understanding. “I” is the solidness, or solid comprehension or awareness of Adam.  This “I” is that cause and effect, producing all things which God has ordained for the Seed to express and are one wonderful and harmonious expression.

It was an internal experience, and it appeared to him not only subjectively but objectively out of the womb of Eve, the mother of all living effect.

Revelation 12:5 and she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.  6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Genesis 5:1 this is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

If you read the account carefully, you will find that even when there were two of them, an Adam and an Eve were still in Eden, because Adam and Eve were still one with God, as one expression bringing forth fruit unto God. But then desire entered the picture, and that was where the trouble began. Desire is no part of oneness or completeness and it would separate us from the infinity of our being, so that instead of drawing from within, we begin to think of growing from without; we begin to think of an external creation as being reality, rather than internal creation, or growing from within. In the case of Adam and Eve, the growing started from without with the creation of Cain and Abel out of sperm and egg; and at once there developed a sense of separation, a sense of being apart from the infinite source of being. No longer did they feel the completeness and wholeness of being–and dying we died.

With that sense of separation, which arose from the belief in good and evil, the illusion of a separate self known as humanity was formed. In this sense of duality, the illusion of the ego (the Phantom Man) came.  The belief in an objective universe of good and evil generated the lie of personal sense living. They now lived by what they could observe from the outside; they believed that knowledge could provide good and make them like God. Personal sense life is there as the illusion that blinds us from seeing the reality of Genesis 1–where God saw all things as perfect and good in His sight. How do we see it now? Did you know that the sense of separation is the original sin referred to in Scripture as the Body of Sin, this is a delusion of the heart,  the fabric of our whole sinful, diseased, and poverty-stricken mortal existence? A similar account of separation is told in the story of the prodigal son. There again we find the Father and son as one, with all that the Father has belonging to the son, as long as that relationship of oneness exists and there is no desire for goal setting–for that only makes you finish up in the pigsty!

Just as with Adam and Eve, so with the prodigal son–when there came the sense of desire in him for something outside the very infinity of Allness, he wasted his substance (Glory) on riotous living. In desire he also began to seek for independence, with a resulting sense of separateness; it is this desire for a separate expression that deludes and blinds the mind–desire is the problem. Do you hear this?

The prodigal son set himself up as a separate entity, an entity separate and apart from his Father, no longer drawing from within the household of his Father–the infinity of his own spiritual Being–but now attempting to draw from the outside, which of course very soon runs out of steam.

Of course, we all know how that attempt ended–in the pigsty of sensuality. His complete-ness in Christ was not found again until he returned to the Father’s house, where the Father was waiting for him with open arms. This restoration did not occur until he first became aware of his oneness with the Father, and was willing to return and accept the gift of righteousness he was already given in Genesis 1 as the consciousness of all supply. All that he ever needed was already within himself, but he had no access to it until he again received the gift of righteousness without the moral law of legislation.

For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. Rom 5:17-18

It is in the realization that he already had all the substance that the Father Is and has within himself and that he was complete–that all things were gathered and restored to him as Son of the Living God.

From these two lucid examples, we can see that the disintegration of existence had as its beginning the same claim or belief in an entity or selfhood separate and apart from God. This sense in the final analysis is but an illusion, for we never left the father’s bosom; it is only a delusion of the carnal mind that we feel this way. Do you hear this?

On the Mount of transfiguration the disciples saw this true glory (Christ Image) of this Latter House, radiating being, defined in and through Jesus Christ, it is wonderful. This was the beginning of the Coming of the Lord back into our awareness. Do you see your true self reflected in the Face of Jesus?   Do you now realize that a feeling of guilt and fear of judgment came because of your traditional past?   In our human sense living we have not been able to see what this Glory of the Latter House represents, so let us return back to the Father’s house. It is time—don’t you think?

As a Church we must now again come back to Jesus, and first ask the Holy Spirit to show us who we are in relation to what the disciples saw on the Holy Mount, for there you will find your Oneness in the Godhead, there is no other.

The Glory of the Latter House is in fact our only and true state of being. This Glory was again revealed in Jesus Christ, as the Only Begotten of God, ordained from the beginning to be our Life and Nature, it is wonderful. 

Let us remember, the Latter House consciousness is Christ Jesus in His ascended state; and in our awareness and acceptance of it we are complete in Him, do you hear?  The Consciousness of Jesus in His ascended state is the all power of the Father; it is the temple of the Living God, which temple are ye in your awakened state.  

However, you will not have the Power of Jesus abiding in you unless you let Him come into your heart and receive the Free Gift. Remember, we all are powerless in our Adamic fable lifestyle. We all must be born again of the incorruptible Seed which is Christ to whom the promise was made, before we see the Power of God, the Latter House Glory, being demonstrated!

In reality God (or Christ Jesus as the Only Begotten of God) is the consciousness of every individual Life. God saw it and it was good.  In God’s Mind, there is no other form.  What God created in true holiness and righteousness you are, in your true individuality as the Christ Image.  However, it was because of the veil of personal sense as a sense of alienation from the Life which God generated, that Christ, the image of God, has been overshadowed. 

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Cor. 4:3-4  

Praise God, when Jesus was crucified, the veil of duality was rent and we again have access to our true Life and Identity by the Nature of the Lamb of God, it is wonderful. Now again we can see into the mystery of God’s Love for us without a veil over our heart, it is wonderful, can you say amen?

Legally the whole creation was baptized by one Spirit into one Household or Body of Christ; there is no longer the illusion of a mistaken identity ruling our lifestyle. In Christ Jesus, we are legally all One Body and members in particular.  However, we must open the door of our heart and obey the Voice of Jesus before the Spirit of Resurrection will quicken our whole lifestyle, do it now!  Now is the Day of Salvation, do not wait any longer, time is running out for this world.

Humanity as a whole is descriptive and known as the former house. Humanity is therefore the fable, the illusion of life, which includes all former beliefs in God as a separate Being from us. This state of consciousness is what Jesus called flesh.  Flesh or religion cannot see the Righteousness of God without the law; forms of religious worship blind them, and they cannot see the Kingdom of God.  This former Human state of life is a branch cut off from reality. It cannot look beyond the veil of flesh, governed by space and time, and dying it dies in its darkness. 

JESUS IS THIS LIVING BRANCH OF LIFE.

Jeremiah 23 calls the Righteousness Branch, the offspring of the Living God, the only Begotten One. However, Jesus as the last Adam died and destroyed the illusion of flesh for all and as all.  In the resurrection God again raised up this living Branch as King and Lord and again began to reign and prosper over this World.  This is the coming of the Lord, but you and I must personally experience it (do you hear this?) before we will see the fruit of it all.   The coming of the Lord brings resurrection to our whole life–spirit, soul and body; it happens when we hear and obey the prompting of the Spirit. 

In Jer 23:6 we read, “His Name shall be called the Lord our Righteousness”–which indicates the male (Spirit) factor of God.  

However In Jer. 33:15-16 it says: “In those days and at that time will I cause the branch of Righteousness to grow up. . . . and the Name wherewith she (Female or Soul) shall be called the Lord our Righteousness”–for those two have become One Spiritual Dimension.  Spirit and Soul have become One Expression and brings forth the Man-Child of Revelation 12, it is wonderful, wonderful!

The Man-child (the New Creation Man) born of God is this state of fruitful consciousness, bringing Life and Immortality to Light to a groaning and travailing Creation.  Jesus came and manifested the Latter House Glory, the Man Child, the perfect Union of Soul and Spirit, glory be to Jesus. Can you not see that the Human Soul without spiritual insight is a branch cut off from reality which withers and dies?  In this state of darkness, it cannot look beyond the veil and therefore cannot experience God’s abundance in this life either, for humanity is a sense of separation from the Living God and cannot know God.

Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he lives?  For the woman, which hath a husband, is bound by the law to her husband so long as he lives; but if the husband (Adam in his descended state) be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband (Flesh man) lives, she is married to another man, she shall be called an adulterer: but if her husband were dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulterer, though she is married to another man. Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the Body of Christ (Spiritual Birth); that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.  Romans 7:1-4

Can you not see that the Latter House consciousness represents God’s Spiritual nature in Union with your soul and body–and then all your experiences in Life will become harmonious and peaceful?  This conscious union brings the Life ordained of God into expression; it is wonderful.  This life-giving urge will spring forth from within you unto everlasting life. 

In John 3 Nicodemus, who was a traditional Jew, was seeking the mystery of why and how Jesus could heal the sick. He realized Jesus was a teacher sent from God–for no man can do the miracles which you are doing except you have God consciousness, and you know that you are in the Father as One Being.

Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Verily, verily I say unto you except a man be born again or born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

The concept Nicodemus had was, “How can a man be born when he is old?”  Nicodemus was living in the illusion of sense evidence, do you hear?  “Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”  Jesus answered and said, “Verily I say unto you, except a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God (the life of abundance).  What is born of flesh is flesh, what is born of the Spirit is Spirit.”

We see here the necessity to be born again into conscious union with God the Father, through receiving the revelation of the Cross where we as a separate selfhood, Tony or Fred, died. Now in Christ Jesus we must surrender all outward trust in materiality, including the body as we know it, and live by the faith of the Son of God who died and gave Himself for me. 

Galatians 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. 

When this experience of death to the Ego comes in our meditations and we begin to see the meaning of the Cross of Jesus, God (as we awaken out of sleep) will again reveal the dominion life ordained for you and me from the beginning, it is wonderful. In this awareness of God’s Presence, consciousness becomes the storehouse of all supply, where all wisdom and all power abide, and it is wonderful. This is the New Day dawning in the Body of Christ; do not reject it, you who read this letter.

The whole body of Christ should awaken to this reality. We must all decide not to remain flesh, for then will we remain Human, subject to all our cultural beliefs, which are subjective in nature, controlled mesmerically by the Fables of life–and we die.  Yes, sometimes it takes some shifting, for the flesh realm is hypnotic in its working. Flesh, or judging life by its outward values, depends entirely upon what your particular upbringing happens to be, can you hear this?

When I migrated to Australia, I still had a Dutch consciousness; and for a long time my life was subject to my former lifestyle and beliefs. Even though I was a so-called Christian, I still acted out a lot of my cultural subjective beliefs and with it came disease, lack and fear of the future–what is going to happen to me?   Nevertheless, praise the Lord, when my mind received the engrafted Word of God from within by the hearing of faith, light came into my life and I was born again.  In due course, I was raised from the death realm of my former life; I began to see my new environment, which was the inner completed Kingdom of God, it was wonderful.   I developed this new consciousness in like manner, as we develop our human ways of thinking, by listening, concentrating and obeying the Voice of the Son of God in me. Now in Christ Jesus we must stop all asking, we must stop praying or desiring things from God our Father, for all things are already yours, are you hearing ME?

It took some time before I fully perceived what my true heritage was as a son of the living God. Understanding that the latter house is your own consciousness as divine spiritual son brings with it the healing of your total being.  Remember, the Only Begotten Son is the only power and this has to come to you by revelation; for there is no other God form. It is your personal realization and awareness of this completed Kingdom that gives you life and life more abundantly.

This is your finest hour, if you hear the Voice of the Son. It is your own inner Voice speaking and saying: “All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

We have learned from the Old Testament that there are two states of consciousness, the new and the old. 

1.  The spiritual nature of God and man as one Being. 

2.  The law of this Consciousness is our experience.

3.  “I” am is the Spirit of Life, but because of the insensitivity of heart which unfortunately is prevalent in this world of duality (the controlling factor in human and religious society)–death, disease and lack still reign. 

You see the law or letter came by Moses who judged the people as unworthy to receive the Life of the I AM. 

Law and legislation came by Moses as a restraining factor, which kept the people under constraint, but they were not free, do you hear? Moral Law was given to a people who had no sensitivity of heart; they were of the earth (“earthy”) and will return to the earth, dust to dust.   In this state of darkness as creatures of the earth, we are alienated from the Life of God and suffer all that we see in this outer world of survival of the fittest. In the flesh man, we cannot hear or see the latter house dimension. In Adam, we cannot see or hear the true God and Father of Jesus as the initiator of all Life; we cannot judge righteous judgment. In reality God is our individual consciousness expressed, but that will not function until purged from guilt and a sense of fear by the blood of the lamb; then you will rise out of your obscurity and live. Receive Jesus now, and be married to Him who fulfilled the Law and rose from the dead!  It is wonderful!

Love Tony.    

THOU ART THE BRIGHT MESSENGER

Thou art the Bright Messenger – the Shining One, the being of pure Spirit. Thou art not the man thou hast been, lo these many years.

Thou art new – born, fresh, clean, and pure. Thou art not an old creature patched up by various treatments. Thou, Bright Messenger, Golden One, hast never descended to the level of belief, and therefore hast not consorted with the shadows of the play – life.

Thou art the Bright Messenger, with winged feet, who goeth where he will, and knoweth no obstruction, nor condition. Thou art the unconditioned, the untrammeled, the free – the individualized yet inseparable manifestation of the All God.

Thou art the Bright Messenger. Thou art full of light – bathed in All Light. Whithersoever thou goest is light – not consciously projected, but unconsciously conveyed; a natural effect of thy presence.

Thou art the Bright Messenger. Thine eye is single to the Allness of God, the Oneness of creation. Thou therefore seest with the eye of light. Thou lookest into a universe of All Light, and seest through the shadows of belief. Thou seest the world in a world, the rose in a rose, and the Man in a man. Thou perceivest with thine eye of Light that which IS and always has been – not that which shall be changed by begging, beseeching, or praying to a tyrant called God to make whole. With the eye of Light thou seest nothing to heal, for thy sight is perfect in the understanding: ” I AM of too pure eyes to behold iniquity. ” Thou art the Bright Messenger – the being of light. In the touch of thy hand is light. As the warmth of Spring touches the frozen earth, so thy touch of light causes the seed to swell and burst and the flower to leap from her chalice. Thy touch of light is like the soft rain on the parched desert, which causes it to bloom as a rose. Whomsoever thou touchest – in the true sense of the word – thou transformest, instantly, gloriously, freely, joyously.

And men shall call it health, but thou shalt call it revelation.

Thou art the Bright Messenger. Thou hast the golden touch which transforms everything into the gold of which Ophir never dreamed.

Thy touch shall be able to take from the fish’s mouth the needed symbol. Thy touch it is which gives that which is beyond price, and which makes a man rich even when the saying goes, “Silver and gold have I none, but of such as I have, I give unto thee.” Such as thou hast in the touch, O Bright Messenger, is beyond the price of pearls and rubies – the transforming touch which is gentle yet firm, which is soft like the surface of the ocean, but which has the power to dash a whole fleet of evil ships into oblivion. Thou art the Bright Messenger – thy touch is Golden.

Thou art the Bright Messenger. The aroma of thy presence precedes thee. Thy passing is as the passing of a cloud of incense from the sacred lilies of the enchanted woods. In thy presence the precious perfume of the soul is sensed above the stagnant odours of human beliefs. When thou comest to the soul it is as the bridegroom before whom the lovely flowers of purity open and shed their perfume in superabundance. At thy coming the rose loosens the silken tassel of her soul and gives forth the glorious attar of her being. At thy coming the trees and minerals loosen the glorious refreshing odours of woods and stones. From thy nostrils comes the Breath of Life. From thy breath comes the appearance of the new creation. Man becomes a living soul by breathing thy breath – man lives, and moves, and breathes, and has his being in thy breath. Thy breath fans the small sparks of faith into the flame of realization. From thy nostrils comes the flashing, dazzling fire which consumes the dross of belief. Thou art the Bright Messenger.

Thou art the Bright Messenger. Thy invitation is, “Oh, taste and see that the lord is good.” Eat my body (my substance) and drink my blood (inspiration). Thy taste is Golden. The milk and honey of the universe of the All God are thine. The hidden manna (that which the eye – the human belief – cannot see) thou feedest upon.

Thy eternal drink is the Living Water. Thou shalt never be without the sustenance of Spirit, no matter whither thou goest. Thou shalt realize this all-substance, and shalt cease from thy thought-taking process of wondering wherewithal shall we be clothed and fed. Thou shalt eat, and hunger no more; drink, and thirst no more – for thou shalt feed upon the reality of life instead of the husks of material belief, with its shadow appearances.

Thou art the Bright Messenger, the bearer of Glad Tidings. Upon thy breastplate, encrusted in gold, is the motto, “Speak no evil nor listen to”. Thou art of too pure ears to hear evil – thou hearest with the ear of Spirit. Thou hearest with the silent ear – closed to the din of the human relative conditions, but open to that which “eye hath not seen, ear hath not heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man (human thought) the things which are prepared for them that love thy LAW.” Thou hearest the word of peace and a whole ocean of fury of belief ceaseth – stilled and made calm. Thou hearest the reports of that which IS, and thou tellest of these. Thou hearest the things that “Ear hath not heard” – the ear of man whose breath is in his nostrils, and whose eye is double – and yet thou hearest the report of the Kingdom Here and Now – thou hearest the Glad Tidings of the eternal Christ walking to-day in the Garden of Attainment. Thou hearest the words “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased,” and thou recognizest these words as addressed to thee.

Thou art not ashamed, nor afraid because of thy nakedness; the stark tragedies of the human belief fade into the distance when thou answerest this call with the “Aye, Aye” of Spirit. Thou hearest in the truest sense of the word – in the fearless sense of the word, “Arise and shine, for thy light hath come.” No need to create this light, to stimulate it, but only to recognize this light as within.

How can a man who is constantly looking for evil to heal and treat know anything of the Kingdom? How can he understand the things which cannot be seen nor heard with the human ears? How can he set right that which he has already done? And yet there are those poor deluded souls who have appointed themselves the official stone-casters for the Christ, not realizing that they are casting stones at HIM.

Thou art the Bright Messenger – the Being of Light – the Unafraid.

Why should there be fear when the realization has come that thou art the Bright Messenger, the being of pure Spirit – not subject to the beliefs of the thought world, not subject to the failures and successes of thy human life, but suddenly up and above that which has always seemed so real.

Bright Messenger, Unafraid Being, Holy Creature, Son of God – arise – shine. Arise, let thy light so shine. Take no thought – if thou take thought, it will be of fear or limitation. Thou art the Bright Messenger – the Being of Light that goeth forth before the manifestation of thy human self, and maketh straight the way. Thou art the Unafraid, the Unbound, the Prometheus Unbound. Thou shalt smite the rock and make it gust forth the Living Water of Life.

Thou art the Bright Messenger, the Being of Light, the Unafraid.

Thou art glorious – thou art free – thou art not bound by human limitations – “Thou art not another [a separate one] but the same one.” Thou art the Christ. Hail! Soul of Me, I salute you Son of God – Christ – Bright Messenger.
