Peace Mission CD 4-35, track 3.
This recording contains two brief testimonies. The first is by noted Philadelphia Civil Rights attorney Austin J. Norris, who speaks concerning “What FATHER DIVINE’s Marriage means to the world” and proclaims MOTHER DIVINE “The First Lady of the World.” After this, MOTHER DIVINE rises to speak regarding the Marriage, and affirms “Of Myself, I Am Nothing.”
Given at the Fifth Wedding Anniversary, Unity Mission Church, Philadelphia, April 29, 1951 ADFD at 8:00pm. Peace Mission CD 4-7, Tracks 1 & 2.
It is marvelous when the people can get the significance of what it is all about! Lots of people may merely be awakened in the vibrations, as I AM the Resurrection, but yet they may not get the significance of MY Message.
The Dispensation, the Time and the Season were praying to ME! The Dispensation, the Time and the Season — it may have been an echo, or echoed through mortality’s version — but the Dispensation, the Time and the Season, as I explained it, the Time had come that generally it was as the sap rising in the spring. It was calling for ME — the Dispensation, the Time and the Season, and not merely mortality. So that is the idea! The time warranted it; which is the same as I say, the Time will come and now is, no doubt, when it will be or would be necessary for amendments to be made to our Righteous Government Platform for improvement on it; some things to be repealed, and the like; but as time and season and necessity warrant it.
Necessity has been calling for ME! With or without a Person Necessity, not mortality; I AM not studying about mortality; Necessity has been calling for ME! Naturally the spring calls for the sap to rise in the earth in vegetation and even in man and beast. They may not say a thing, but Necessity, the time and the season of the year and the Time and Season of the Ages — the Dispensation and the Necessity — they have been calling for ME! It is Wonderful!
At times it may work through the hand of Nature. At times an appeal may be made through the Cosmic Forces of Nature. Through the nature of humanity and different manners of expression they speak to GOD — those things are calling. It is Wonderful!
Mortality has been groping in darkness and misunderstanding, beseeching and begging in groveling attitude towards GOD in the mortal versionated concept and idea concerning the Mystery, but I AM coming and answering and fulfilling the scripture! So the Mystery will be revealed when the scales of misunderstanding and the mortal version shall have been lifted from humanity and GOD reveals HIS Secrets to HIS Servants, the Prophets! I thank you.
Spoken 8 July 1943 ADFD; The New Day 31 July 1971 ADFD.
You prayed for it to come! You prayed vividly, conscientiously and sincerely, but oh, how glorious it is to realize, that which you once merely surmised, you have now come into possession of it! It came not with observation! As the sap rises in the spring, even so have I come in the hearts and lives and business and affairs of the children of men and have been enthroned therein — upon the Righteous minds of men!
Righteousness, I said, is the foundation of the Kingdom of GOD! Can you not see the Mystery? When righteousness is established in one and in all, they are there and then prepared for the coming and for the establishment of the Kingdom of GOD!
The New Day 20 September 1947 ADFD, pp. 11-12
A silent slideshow presentation of many images of MOTHER DIVINE, originally prepared for observances following Her Transcendence on March 4, 2017. The Holy Day commemorating the Event reminds us to “March Forth!” in aspiration of FATHER’s Mind and Spirit. MOTHER DIVINE is the Perfectly Victorious Christ-Like Sample and Example for all humanity.
“And MOTHER DIVINE, as She is known to be, shall be called Blessed by all nations of the earth. …So then I say… the Virginity and the Virtue of MOTHER DIVINE, it is to be revered and admired. Not only so, but to be visualized and reproduced and materialized; for that which She has brought to fruition is your privilege to be partakers of the same, for as She said, “Love is not confined nor bound to a personality, it is not confined nor bound to an individuality.” I am teaching and have taught MY Spotless Virgin Bride how to transcend personality and individuality and revel in the glorious liberty of the reality of GOD ALMIGHTY, with victory over all materialization and over all mortality. I often think of how some have said, “What is going to become of you all when FATHER DIVINE goes?” Since I am Omnipresent and Ever-Present, I have nowhere to go.”
