At this juncture, I wish to convey a story that was told as a parable concerning “Mine and Yours.” It is said to be a true story.
It is said, two men purchased a cow once. One claimed the head, the front part of the cow, and the other claimed the hind part of the cow. The one who claimed the hind part of the cow forced the man who claimed the front part of the cow to lead the cow around and feed the cow and graze the cow, and he would only come and milk the cow, and get the milk.
He said, “That is my part and I will not feed the hind part of the cow, for the hind part of the cow does not have to eat, so you will have to lead and feed and graze the cow from the front part and also give her water and everything like that.”
So the other fellow got tired of doing such, so he turned in and decided to get even with John, he said. So he killed his part; which was the front part, and the other man’s part died. This is a story as a fairy tale, but said to be true.
I AM speaking a parable concerning Christ and you. You may claim yours or claim something that is your for your own selfish purpose, and continue to claim it – – after a while GOD will take that which you call His, and leave you that which you call yours. Now isn’t that logical?
Jot these thoughts down in your memory and stamp them once and forever in your notebooks; yea, once and forever, and they shall be established in your memory and you will not forget about giving GOD His and leaving yours, if you wish to; but if you wish to give GOD all of His, you will have yours. The man got tired leading the cow around and feeding the cow all of the time and could not get any milk to drink. “Will a man rob GOD?” The whole nation has robbed ME!
Mortality has striven to give everything else a body and everything else a personality, everything else a visible expression in which to exist, saving GOD, but I have MY sustenance and I have MY Temple, and I shall always have a Personality, and I shall always have a Person, for I shall Personify Myself in every expression as a reigning King of kings and Lord of lords.
GOD is Spirit, it is true, but Spirit Personified. For you, GOD is Spirit Personified, it is true. GOD is Mind, but Mind made Flesh; Spirit made Flesh and Spirit shall be Mind throughout eternity; and yet, Mind shall be Flesh as I materialize it, and none shall hinder ME. I mean to reign, not merely as something mystical and imaginary, but I shall reign visibly. I shall manifest in the hearts and lives of the bodies of the children of men. I shall transform and reincarnate Myself in them, and shall also Personify Myself as a Personal Bodily Form on this earth plane.
When they took up stones to cast at Jesus, Jesus saw a multitude of people in the parable, parably speaking, He conveyed Himself in them and so passed by. I AM conveying Myself in millions. If I were not living in this Personal Tabernacle, I have millions in which to live, and I shall live eternally and none shall hinder ME.
Tell all of the critics and all of the opposers I have Come this time to reign forever. I AM not only something mystical, but I shall be a living factor and I shall be a living reality. I shall be universally established in personalities and shall have a Personality Myself as well as everybody else. I shall have a Physical Body Myself as well as everybody else. It is true. GOD is Spirit Personified. That is the only way mankind can realize GOD is GOD, and a GOD that never changes. Oh, it is something to consider.
Mankind has introduced all sorts of prohibitations, trying to prohibit GOD from having an earthly existence. They want dominion among the people, but your very bodies are MINE. That is why I AM stopping and have stopped man from having them. Man and mankind, men and women shall not have them. “They are mine, says the Lord.” Everyone of the bodies belong to ME – – the bodies of the women and the bodies of the men, the bodies of the children, of girls and boys – – they all belong to ME, says the Lord. You have had them long enough. You shall no longer have them.
It is written:
“The souls of the fathers, and the souls of the sons,
They all are mine, says the Lord.”
If you try to take GOD’S bodies, GOD will take His and leave you yours. All are GOD’S, but if you claim a body as yours, and will try to rob GOD of His own, as you have been doing, I will let you hold on to them, but I will take Mine and leave you that which you call yours. Your bodies belong to GOD, but if you continue to claim them, and try to hold them by legality and other mortal versions, I will allow you to have them, but I will take Mine and you will not want yours. I thank you!
