My true followers do not have the slightest thought to take, what they are going to eat, one meal for the next! I am helping you to do what Jesus said. Some thought it could not be done, but I have proven it to the letter scientifically and accurately and I daily demonstrate it for you – “Take no thoughts for yourself, what you shall eat or drink, one day for the next.”
Now by the masses and thousands and thousands here that are sitting and standing by, especially those of you my immediate followers and those who have committed all things unto my keeping, who are consecrated to my service wholeheartedly and under my personal jurisdiction – you do not have to take any thought what you are going to eat, one day for the next, neither what you are going to drink, in that you can fulfill that part of the Scripture accurately – in that you can live Evangelically!
Jesus Did Not Take Much Thought About Eating
But you could not, if you have to be taking thoughts and worrying about what you are going to eat, one day for the next. Even that point is not living Evangelically. To live Evangelical, it means to live exactly according to the Life and the Teaching of Jesus, and Jesus did not take very much thought apparently, for He went out and there was a crowd out there who wanted to eat and at the time the food was necessary, it came forth into expression!
God provides where there is not anything and makes something out of nothing! Can you not see the Mystery? But as I afore said, “I am living an Evangelical life,” you hear some say. If you live Evangelically, you live exactly according to the Life and Teaching of Christ – the Teaching of Christ, as well as the Life of Christ, and He said:
“Take no thoughts for yourself, what you shall eat or drink, one day for the next.”
Now, in that particular instance as Mother Divine said many, many years ago, in crowds that part was fulfilled in her experience since she has been in me. Can you not see the mystery? If I could help you to fulfill the Scripture, to keep that Commandment which is so essential, you can plainly see it is good for all humanity if it is good for an individual. If it has been demonstrated in and among these and thousands of others under my personal jurisdiction who have reckoned my presence and trust me wholeheartedly – you can see definitely and you can see by their experience, it is better to trust in God than to trust in yourself and in others! Can you not see the mystery?
