Sunday Sermon from Volume 3 of Poem of the Man God, Page 414
Transcription begins here:
The text for the sermon is from the Poem of the Man God Volume 3, page 414. And Jesus says,
“I am not choosing you for the only purpose of making you acquainted with the sadness and the sorrows of your Master. Those who are able to stay with Me sharing My grief must share My joy as well. When you are before your Jesus and He shows Himself to you, I want you to have the same feelings of humility and repentance as My apostles had. You must never be proud. You would be punished by losing Me. You must always bear in mind Who I am and who you are. You must always remember your faults and My perfection so that your heart may be cleansed by contrition. But at the same time you must put so much trust in Me. I said: “Be not afraid. Stand up. Let us go. Let us go among men, because I have come to be with them. Be holy, strong and faithful in remembrance of this hour”. I say so also to you and to all My favourites among men, to those who have Me in a special way. Be not afraid of Me. I show Myself to you to elevate you all, not to incinerate you.
Stand up: may the joy of the gift give you energy and do not let it blunt your minds with the savour of quietism, considering yourselves already saved because I have shown Heaven to you. Let us go together among men. I have invited you to superhuman deeds by means of superhuman visions and lessons, so that you may be of greater help to Me. I make you partners in My work. But I have never had and I never have a minute’s rest. Because Evil never rests and Good must be always active to make void the work of the Enemy as much as possible. We shall rest when the Time is accomplished. Now we must proceed untiringly, we must work continuously and sacrifice ourselves
unremittingly for the harvest of God. May My continuous contact sanctify you, may My continuous teaching fortify you and may My fond love for you make you faithful against all snares. Do not be like the old rabbis who taught the Revelation but did not believe in it, to the extent of not being able to recognize the signs of the time and the messengers of God. Ensure that you recognize the precursors of the Christ in His second coming, because the powers of the Antichrist are on the march and, making an exception on the limit I have imposed on Myself, because I know that you drink in certain truths not with a supernatural spirit but out of thirst for human curiosity, I solemnly tell you that what many people think is the victory over the Antichrist, the peace now close at hand, will be only a pause to give the Enemy of the Christ time to acquire new strength, to dress his wounds and gather his army for a fiercer struggle. Since you are the “voices” of your Jesus, of the King of kings, of the faithful and truthful king who judges and fights with justice and will defeat the Beast and his servants and prophets, ensure that you know what is your Good and follow it for ever. Let no false appearance entice you, let no persecution terrify you. Let your “voices” repeat My words. Let your lives be devoted to this work. And if on the earth you should share the same destiny as the Christ, as His Precursor and Elijah, a sanguinary destiny or a destiny subjected to moral torture, smile at the future safe destiny you will enjoy with the Christ, with His Precursor and His Prophet. We shall be equal in our work, in our grief, in our glory. Here I am the Master and the Example. There I shall be the Reward and the King. To have Me will be your blessedness. It will mean forgetting sorrow. It will be what no revelation is yet sufficient to make you understand, because the joy of the future life is by far superior to the possibility of imagination of a human creature still joined to a human body”.
These words were revealed in 44′, 45′ in World War II where Hitler was being defeated. And people thought at the end of that war that he was the Anti Christ and the Anti Christ was defeated. He was the precursor of the Anti Christ. The Anti Christ is now, with the craziness on the earth. That just nursed his wounds and made him drool over the possibility of corrupting more and more souls, so that’s his purpose here. And the world thinks everything is fine, it’s not fine. It’s being sifted as wheat now, to separate the chafe from the wheat. But aside from that which I needed to explain to you because I know you had questions in your mind when you heard it, that wasn’t the real purpose of my sermon. But to show you Jesus’ Love and His Perfection and His Power in calling you and in retrieving you from your confusion, and His Joy in saving you and His Joy in sacrificing for you. If you know that your sacrifice makes possible the victory of every human soul over death and over sin. If you know that, you would do it willingly and your confidence in your act would encourage everyone else, which is what He’s doing. He’s encouraging you to come to Him but not pridefully, not because you think you’re special, or because you think you’re saved or all that other garbage that the Christian world thinks and the language that they use, which is total hypocracy. But you come to Him humbly because He is the Love. Because you open yourself to the Love. Because you want Him to take care of you. You want Him to take you in His arms and heal you, and fix you, and cleanse you, and free you. And He has the absolute authority to do that. And there is a standard that He has, that unless you come humbly like that He can’t touch you, He can’t work on you at all. Unless you come open, anticipating Him, He can’t appear to you.
Unless you have some desire to be like Him, there’s nothing that’s going to draw you. So, what is Him? He is this great fire of Love that sacrificed itself for the entire of humanity. So unless you have some like longing to do that, to give like that, you can’t have much part with him. Now at first you don’t know him and you are startled by His Love and you don’t know His mission and you don’t know how He works, when you are beginning to learn about Him. But after you start learning, it’s not really about getting stuff, it’s about entering into the service that he performs; the way He loves, the way He heals, the way He purifies people, the way He lifts sins, the way He suffers your negative energy and takes it into Himself and transmutes it and transforms it. He never defended Himself against the attacks. He would sometimes accuse the Pharisees of hypocrisy, and He’s lay out how weird they were, and how disgusting they were, in graphic yelling. But He never defended His own being from whatever they wanted to do, even to the point of them killing Him.
When you are confident of your Love, you don’t defend yourself. When you are confident in what you are doing, you don’t have to explain yourself to anybody, do you? Now, somebody might want to know why you’re doing something and you explain it to them. But if you are sure of what you are doing and you are in no doubt about what you are doing, no explanation is required, and you don’t have to give it, you feel very fine about what you are doing. Jesus was exponentially more confident than that. He had a mission. He was given a mission. He took on a mission, He volunteered for the mission, He didn’t have to, God didn’t send him down here to torture Jesus. He volunteered to Love that much to pay off your sins. And Hes inviting you in after that, that’s just clean up time, that’s just clean up time. After that, He invites you into a relationship, the relationship of being close with Him and Him being close with you. Now what I have noticed is that when you allow that, you get to be one of the ones that doesn’t need anybody. You get to be the ones that don’t look for anybody else because you have Him. I see that as a demarcation line, for the ones that have completely let Him into Their heart, they don’t need anybody else. And maybe God gives you someone, as a companion, but you don’t need it. and I know, in your density, in your thick body, you go,” Well what about touch, and what about affection, and what about contact, flesh to flesh, warmth of body, what about kisses and hugs?”
You’re still encased in a thick membrane of flesh. And the flesh has practically choked your soul into a little ball of a spot inside. When you are liberated from that consciousness of being imprisoned in flesh. You are a soul, where the body is obedient to the soul and barely a constrain or obstacle for soul. Life force moves in a being like that. The body does not limit it or constrain it. It’s not heavy in such a one where soul and God within has become prominent. You are still suffering under the heaviness of the flesh, because the flesh is being attended to and indulged, whenever it screams at you. For ones who’ve invited Jesus in, really, I’m not talking about the altar call folks, those are the emotional middle – schoolers. They have a little emotional scene, they have a little altar call thing, and it’s like so temporary, and it’s like a little bit of moisture on the skin, that’s about as deep as it goes. And maybe they feel something, but when you get close to relating to Jesus, where He’s real for you, and you let Him in, and you be nothing for Him, and He takes you on, and He does things to you out of grace, out of love, out of compassion; healing you. Little subtle things at first, big things over time. You enter into a Love that you know nothing about, so far, or up to that point, you did not. It’s huge. And gradually, you convert, you turn from attending to the body, to attending to the soul. That’s a conversion from AC to DC is a conversion. From body thick consciousness to soul consciousness is a tremendous conversion. I know, that you know, that we die. I know that you know that we are a temporary being here on the planet, we come in , we’re born, and then we die, within a number of years, but you still forget that you are an eternal being that just has a short stay in this body home. And that eternal being that you are, you know, has an existence outside of this flesh, and this flesh is not that important. It’s not that important. So this Love we are talking about with Jesus is going to persist across bodies, across time, across worlds. Why do you think He came, was it trivial what He did, you know, did He come to just trivialize things? Did He come to just, you know, change a body into Light? That’s it? No! He introduced a relationship with God, that human beings have lost. Very deep teaching. He introduced you to something you didn’t know. And He is doing it now. He has as few followers now, practically, as He had then. He has as few instruments, that He’s turned into Himself, made replicas of Himself, as He did then.
He wants you. He actually needs to you demonstrate Him and His type of Love and His transformative energy on the planet. Who else has He got? He only has those that can hear Him. He only as those that love Him. He only has those that can perceive what His being is and what His purpose is. And for the most part, people sitting in churches are not interested in that. They are interested in a few warmed over scrapes that might inspire them to not, you know, be in despair. They are not looking to be this Love that He is, cause the minsters can’t talk live that, cause they themselves are not that loving yet. You can’t teach what you don’t know. If you don’t know this, you can’t teach it. Jesus can heal you of all your insecurities in a movement of His breath, a touch of His finger on your head. If that’s what you thought possible. If that’s what you opened for, if you have a longing in your heart for a human being, He could heal that. I know you may not want that healed, but He could heal that. If you have a fear that you’re not good enough, one hug from Jesus would take that away. You have to do your part. You have to act like you mean it, when you ask Him for things, and you have to act the way the healing would demonstrate, that it happened. You have to act according it. Be like the healing that you want and then ask for help and it’ll just ride you through.
When I look out at a sea of humans, such as you, I see the concepts that you have been faithful to and I see them as many heavy weights on your limbs. And I look at them and I go, “Why, why, do you let that weight hang off your limbs? Why do you have these chains tying you to so many concepts”? And you go, ” well that’s what everybody does”. I know that’s what everybody does, but for those who are letting Jesus and Mary work on them, that becomes embarrassing,that becomes embarrassing, because They could go clip, clip, clip. clip, in a second and you’d be free and light. Really simple, really quick. but you know how you are, if you get scared and you let go and it will be nothing and it will be worse than the something that you didn’t like to begin with. Was that too hard to understand? I call that bargaining with God, I mean you’re going well I’ll let go of this if it seems better. How about something more beautiful like, “I trust you God, that you’ve known me since you created me. I trust you Jesus and Mary, because you know what is best, because you’ve overcome, you overcame everything. That you know all of my limitations, that you know everything that blocks me. And that you don’t want me like that, so I trust you to take care of me, and just move me through, until I am completely healed. Whatever it takes, even if there is a tearing. Even if there’s a ripping and tearing, I accept that. Because I know, I am going to turn into you. I am going to turn into the peace that you are. Do with me as you will, I place myself in your hands. I am a hunk of clay, form me, mold me, shape me, bend me, break me, heat me, treat me in whatever way you want. I don’t know what it’s supposed to look like, but you do. I don’t know how I will be, but you see it. I don’t know what’s best for me, and I have all of these ideas, but none of them have worked very well. I place myself in your hands”.
My eternal mission on the planet and in life, is seen by God, I can’t see it all, don’t profess to see it all. I do want to see my next step as I am taking it, as I am taking it. That kind of trust, that you don;t need to know that much, that you just need to know what’s next, that’s really fun. That makes life a really cool adventure. But you guys have a grip on your future, that’s like a choke hold, choking the life out of your future. Instead of, ” I don’t know, like why don’t you guide this, I have no idea, why don’t you just move me along”.
Jesus wants people like that, who can be that malleable, that moldable, that shapeable, that agile. He wants you agile in the changes. You want to control it, then you’re afraid of him. You want to control it, then Jesus has to back off and go, ” okay, untighten your grip off the steering wheel of life”. you go, ” No”. He goes, ” I’ll take the wheel.” You go, ” No”. ” I’ll take the wheel,look at my hands, I’m ready”. ” No”. Isn’t it stressful trying to figure out what to do all the time? And you could just go, “Okay, we’re going to go right up here at the sign, and then were going to go left, and then just look out the window, enjoy, I’ll drive”. ” But what about tomorrow”? ” We’re not even near tomorrow, we’re not near tomorrow. We’re like in the beginning of this day, let’s work on today. Scenery might be different tomorrow, right now, this is what we are looking at, look out the window, that’s what we’re looking at”.
Some of you want to know too far ahead, because you’re a very fearful, tremulous, character.Some of you are looking in the past, looking out the back window, while you are supposed to be driving. That is an accident, waiting to happen. Do you not know that most everything in your past is a husk of deadness, that cannot be revived. And there was nothing that satisfying there, at all. And if you have to inject sentimental memories into it, it is already a sarcophagus of death, if you have to inject things into it. And why would you do that, you can’t go back to it, you can’t go back to it, it’s dead. It’s over, that part of it. Jesus wants you in the here and now, with Him. And whatever that eternal presence and present is going to be, He will give it to you, if you give Him all, and He will give you all. You give a little, you get a little. You put out a little,you get a little back, you know the law, that’s the law. We’re all under that, we’re all under that. You give a little, you get a little, you give a lot, you get a lot, very simple, very simple. You open a little, a lot comes in,more than you like, usually. You open a lot, an avalanche comes it. there’s always a little grace, that’s more than you earned. Blessings on top of blessings. If I could just shatter one concept, which I’m not going to be successful at, but I, if I could, it would be me dreaming, and that would be the concept, that I could only have so much joy or so many blessings. That concept of limitation, that you could only accept so much love, and a person of your magnitude, wouldn’t deserve much more than that. You could shatter that concept, you could have whatever Jesus wants to give you. And I now if would be more than you would be willing to imagine. It’d be more than your container could contain. Are you going to let Him Love you? Or are you going to hold back His Love with this huge Hoover dam, keeps the water back, while you figure out your life. Are you going to let Him Love you? Because that’s going to be the determining factor of weather you’re going to be useful to Him. His Love doesn’t flow into you, you can’t transform. If you can’t transform, you can’t help. If you can’t help, you’re not useful. You going to let in a drop, a week? You’ll be dead before you’re transformed. You need to let in waves and waves of love,until it totally works you over. Because in my experience, you need that much love to even start to be useful. Because if you don’t have that much love, you’ll be a caricature of a servant of God. A paper doll, a marionette, pulled by the strings of your own fears. You know the Pinocchio story, where he prayed so hard to be a real boy, because he’s was a wooden boy, because he wasn’t a grown up, and he wasn’t real, and he had a lying problem, he lied a lot, remember? That was one of his problems, his nose grew when he lied. Many of you are Pinocchio, you’re not real yet. I know, you could find insult in that, but I am not insulting you, it’s just that Love has not turned you into a real person yet, because you’re still stiff, holding in your fears and your worries, and your anger and you pride, you’re still stiff, wooden, you’re still wooden, you see? The Love makes you come alive, become a real person. That’s what Jesus is inviting you to become.
