I am Omniscient, Omnipotent; Omnipresent Truth.
I contain within myself everything that ever was, is, or shall be. Myself is Spirit, not matter; Mind, not body.
I do not refer to my physical sight, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting in the sense of their being real at all, but in the sense that they seem to be. All my faculties are spiritual, and I want to make it so plain to you that you also will manifest the same idea that I do. As long as the understanding of the Truth is in the body, the body is full of Wisdom.
The words that I have been using to you may be likened to the clay that Jesus put on the eyes of the blind man, and he sent him to a pool of pure water, and told him to rub the water on the clay and he did so and came, seeing. And I tell you to rub these words I have been giving you on your mind. Make a vigorous application and the result will be that you will become perfectly whole. We have no account of the blind man being led to the water or receiving any help; he went, he obeyed.
Many take the words of Truth and read them but they don't make any practical application, or don't practice what they are told to. All that were healed were given something to do or had already done something.
What are you doing?
This man would not recant or take back what he had said, so they cast him out of the church. At the grave of Lazarus the thing they were to do, was to take away the stone or open the door. All anyone has to do to understand the Truth is to open the door. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. All we have to do is to open the door and let I come in. The door is our will, surrender our will, or the flesh senses, and let the I, the true senses, dwell in us, Now you have laid down your five foolish senses and do not judge any more according to the appearances, but judge right.
You understand what the Master meant when they thought to entangle him in his talk and asked him if it was lawful to give tribute to Cæsar or not, and he gave that wonderful, discreet saying, Render therefore unto Cæsar, the things of Cæsar; and unto God, the things that are God's.
As you seek the knowledge of the Truth, it will be given you what the five physical senses are for, and they will fall into their proper place. Seek first the Kingdom of God, and all things else shall be added. You seem to have exemplified in yourself the parable of the ten virgins five were wise and five were foolish. The wise ones might be likened to the spiritual self having all its faculties awake to the spiritual life; and the foolish ones, to the material self or the physical senses. When the Truth is presented those that are spiritually awake, have oil, trim their lamps and go in to the marriage feast, while the others seem to have neglected to make the preparation and find the door shut.
You have not neglected to seek for the Truth. You are mavifesting perfect Truth in all your ways.
I declare that you are born again, and that you see the Kingdom of God. You have entered into the Kingdom of God. You know that there is no other Kingdom than that of God, Mind, Spirit. You are born of the Spirit, and therefore hear my voice. You speak only the words of God, because you are from God. You can't be from anywhere else, for there is nowhere else to he from.
Living waters are continually flowing from your lips. You are doing the will of him that sent you, and you are finishing his work. And when questioned, you are to say, My Fat er worketh hitherto and I work. You take pattern after your Father, and what you see him doing that you also do. The hour is now come when the dead shall hear your voice : and they that hear shall live.
You have heard the voice of the Father and have seen his form, and you have his word abiding in you. The Lord spake unto you out of the midst of fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.
You are not afraid of the winds and waves, of the seeming conditions, but when they surge around you, you are to say to them, Peace, be still; and when everything suddenly settles into quietness and rest you will remember that it is I, the only Mind; that you are at one with that Mind; that when you say, I, you mean Immortality, Infinity, I am that I am. This is the Mind that Christ Jesus had. When he said I, he spoke of himself as though he were God.
He claimed it always. You claim it always.
The word of Truth continues in you always, and you are the disciple of Truth, and then you know the Truth, and the Truth has made you free.
You and your Father are one.
Your Father is your highest thoughts, aspirations, desires. You are living up to your full inheritance today and tomorrow and always, and always it seems to be broadening and enlarging. You are not holding on to those things that you have passed, but are reaching out for those things that are before, always before.
