…In the time of all of the depressions and panics and famines, the Spirit of my presence automatically attracted and drew the necessary food and supplies to fit every desire.
But you must live it. You must be unselfish and unbiased and you must feed the people and do unto others as you would have them do to you. That is the way Jesus did when he fed the five thousand. He did not want to send them away hungry, did He? The same Spirit is speaking today and is just as operative and expressive, but it may appear in a different way. You do not have to sit on the ground here. God has blessed you so you don’t have to sit on the ground now as those did at that time – I mean those who were fed of the five thousand men, besides the women and children. They sat on the ground. But you have been blessed to have comfortable seats, have you not? They had fishes and loaves, but you have chicken and duck, and you usually have turkey, guinea and geese and everything else you desire to eat. You have been blessed in these advanced days of our present civilization.
Therefore, I say, let this Mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus and whatsoever you do be conscientious and be it, do it in all sincerity and God Himself will be with you.
