Oh, how glorious it is to have something to lead you, something to guide you, something to direct you mentally and spiritually with the spirit of Love and humane tendencies for the benefit of all humanity and for the Love of the Almighty!
But as I say, this Love, when it all shall have been established, in any person and brought to fruition, takes on more of a humane or humanitarian tendency and more love for humanity generally than what they could dare accumulate by themselves individually with all of their selfish prejudices! It is a matter of impossibility to produce it, unless you get it from the Infinite, and when the Love of God is developed in you – then you have it from the Infinite, for it is God’s Love that so loved the world so that He gave His only Begotten Son so that the world might be saved through Him!
Can you not see the Mystery? When this is established effectively, the Son of God is within you as the Redeemer and the Savior of others, consciously or unconsciously to you. He is there as a Savior for humanity! Can you not see the mystery? It may be unconscious to you and He may be lying dormant apparently, but when this recognition shall have been actually established you will have an ambition to try to unite others together with you, to give them a chance to enjoy what you are enjoying!
You have a desire that they may enjoy what you are enjoying and come into possession of their rightful inheritance, for you, as heirs and joint heirs together with the Christ, will visualize the Perfect Picture so vividly until you yourselves will materialize it and by nature in consciousness you will eventually produce it and present it to others in the act of bringing about the Universal Brother!
A Sketch of What Will Be Universally
I need not say more! I believe I have said enough to stir up your pure minds, but I will speak in deeds and in actions more effectively than what I can Personally tell you, for this dining room and other dining rooms according to My own design, I put forth into expression as a slight sketch and a reflection of a percent of a fraction of a grain of a percent of a fraction of a grain of what I will do for all mankind!
I sincerely believe, as I might say to you, that the time will come when every living creature will have the free access to all the necessities of life, of comfort and convenience as I have it Personally under My Jurisdiction! It is evidently known, these divers dining rooms as portrayed and as extended from shore to shore and from land to land, they are not for Myself alone as a Person. This is showing you the way I want it to be universally.
As the housekeeper said to me, “Where shall we serve the Banquet this morning?” I said, “I think it is better to serve in the private dining room here; there are other guests to serve and we do not want them to be slighted,” or words to that effect. “We do not want them to fail to be accommodated.” Aside from that, I considered, we want it to be so all of the co-workers, followers and friends, especially those of the immediate co-workers – we all, can eat together.
In the main building the dining room is small; it can only accommodate a limited few, you see. Hence, as a rule I am especially requested to serve in the private dining room there, where we only accommodate about a number such as may be just a part of my immediate staff – the secretaries and immediate co-workers who follow me. But in this larger dining room you all can come together – everyone has the same silverware, the same identical linen, the same identical china to serve from, the same crystal-ware and everything, because this is a sample and an example of model world I am now establishing. I have represented model home, but this goes into infinitude, not only a model nation but a model world of humanity where God with His Great Big Infinite Family will be united together and there will be no longer class distinction by profession or by activity, or by occupation or by vocation, neither will there be class distinction by business, profession, labor or trade, neither by race, creed or color; but I will unite the universe together and they all shall be one great Big Family. I thank you!
