The Everlasting Power of Love | Lesson Summary | Q & A


Introduction

As I was studying Chapter X in Book of Books, I was thinking that it would be nice to have a summary of all the principles and the truths in this chapter in one nice format.

Then last night, October 18, 2018, as I was reading it, I got the thought to start condensing it.

So, here it is!

Note: I added Bible verses to match each title/category of the study from the KJV of the Bible.

 

Section 1 – Love God

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 22:37-39 KJV)

  1. As one offers his LOVE to God, through that powerful instrument, the heart, he is offering to God the only acceptable sacrifice.
  2. Perfect that Great Commandment of LOVE and you will have fulfilled all the laws – of purification and sanctification and Spiritual perfection.
  3. Only through the releasing of this divine LOVE, through the heart can the heart be opened and its hardened seals be broken.
  4. The commandment to LOVE GOD with all mind must be fully considered as the first step toward divine achievement.
  5. If one LOVES GOD WITH ALL HIS MIND then the subconscious realm, being cleansed and renovated, the Holy Helper is given full power to function in Its own great capacity of loving service.
    • Thus the physical, mortal body begins to take on immortality—and “the carnal flesh can be transformed into flesh divine, without descending through the gates of death.”
  6. It is as one LOVES GOD WITH ALL HIS MINDS that they become united in a power of full perfection and one reaches the point where “He comprehends all things.” “And there shall be no darkness in him,” no failures, no sorrows or dismays.
  7. And it must be remembered that these great and unspeakable Truths are RESERVED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD! This is the only possible way they can be received. And this LOVE must go beyond words. It must contain the fulfilling power of the great vibrating glory of generated LOVE being actually released.
    • As one practices sending forth this LOVE through his entire being he opens the very channels of his own soul to God and henceforth God’s own great LOVE begins to be generated through his heart and this is the “FRUIT OF THE TREE OF LIFE!” And the Fruit of The Tree of Life contains the full power and essence of Everlasting Life!
    • Only by developing this great LOVE can one possibly KNOW or EXPERIENCE the glory of God’s fulfilling. And to KNOW is to EXPERIENCE IT FULLY AND COMPLETELY FOR ONE’S SELF. And the promise is that those who fulfill this great LOVE will “SEE AND KNOW FOR THEMSELVES!”
    • This is God’s own Eternal Promise to those who perfect the gift of LOVE. And the Promise cannot be broken, neither can it return to HIM unfulfilled or void! This fulfilling alone can bring the great power of Its glory or actual experiencing. There is no other way to actually KNOW!

 

Section 2 – Love

These things I command you, that ye love one another.” (John 15:17)

  1. As one perfects LOVE and holds only kind, gracious thoughts forth his comprehension of joy and understanding begin to expand or to grow and evolve.
  2. Practice daily sending LOVE through the fibres and tissues of your body. Practice feeling this LOVE being generated first through your mind and then through your heart, as you concentrate upon that divine center of your soul.

 

Section 3 – The Soul

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” (Romans 13:1)

  1. The soul is the spirit and the body of man. It is his entire being.
  2. This concentration of generated love being directed into the cells and atoms and fibers an tissues and bones prepares and alerts the carnal flesh into a higher functioning as it begins to take on “THE LIFE MORE ABUNDANT.
  3. As the cells become more aware of this increasing glory of LIFE, that power of LIFE and LOVE penetrates into the cells and tissues and fibres and atoms and glands with a quickening, glorified renewing process.
  4. Each living cell, as a distinct brain cell of intelligence awakens and begins to also generate LOVE AND LIGHT renewed.
  5. This generated LOVE in every cell and fiber and atom and tissue and sinew the body will begin to take on the properties of the Spirit and will gradually be transformed into “FLESH DIVINE”— “BE BORN OF THE SPIRIT!” .
  6. It is within the secret closet of your own soul as you close the door to hold forth the pattern of your request that God will reward you openly as the very “SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR” is called forth to fulfill the pattern. And thus “God will reward you openly,” or in the full manifestation of tangible accomplishment or materialization. This is the plan and the pattern.
  7. Practice daily sending LOVE through the fibres and tissues of your body. Practice feeling this LOVE being generated first through your mind and then through your heart, as you concentrate upon that divine center of your soul.

 

Section 4 – Your Being

“While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.“ (Psalm 146:2)

  1. Learn to hold your entire being in this vibrating essence of LOVE AND LIGHT.

 

Section 5 – Your Desires

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:4)

  1. As you “hunger and thirst after righteousness” so will your supply be increased until you yourself are prepared to “come forth full formed,” “BORN OF THE SPIRIT” and glorified in truth.

 

Section 6 – The Mind

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians 2:5)

  1. As the mind clarifies the hopes or desires and holds to them, without wavering, they are imprinted on the emotions and become engraved upon the very fiber of ONES being.
    • This is the spiritual method of creation, whether it be the material things of this earth or the Divine Spiritual PROMISES of everlasting perfection.
  2. It is as the mind “lays hold of the best gifts” that they begin to take form in the heart.
  3. As your mind takes hold of your desire it becomes a dynamic blueprint held forth for its own fulfilling.
  4. Practice daily sending LOVE through the fibres and tissues of your body.
  5. Practice feeling this LOVE being generated first through your mind and then through your heart, as you concentrate upon that divine center of your soul.
  6. Every unhappy thought of the past, every bleak, hateful memory, every discordant happening must be blessed—and forgiven and forgotten and erased.

 

Section 7 – The Conscious Mind

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.” (Luke 12:29)

  1. LOVE with all the great, living conscious mind, and:
    • “Your minds and lips will lose the power to hurt and wound!”
    • “You will think only the most beautiful things possible!”
    • “You will begin to think only the most POWERFUL THINGS POSSIBLE!
    • And the most beautiful and the most powerful things to THINK is to have one’s mind open to the power of “BEING BORN OF THE SPIRIT!”
  2. The renovating of the subconscious mind prepares for the full functioning of the conscious mind.
  3. Often the conscious mind is designated as the mental mind. It is used for the NOW and everyday living.
  4. It is the realm where one is privileged to select his thoughts and the caliber of them.
  5. In this selecting is the power of his own advancing, growth and fulfilling. This is the glory of God’s great gift of choice, or “free-agency” in which all rewards are held, and honors bestowed. Everything of value must be earned.
  6. This power of choice holds all the indescribable glory of man’s divine heritage of everlasting splendor. Without it there is no honor or credit or rewards, just existence as one relinquishes his divine prerogative of choice.
  7. This realm of reason and choice is also the realm of rejection and selection and of achieving.
  8. It is the heritage of divinity.
  9. As one uses his conscious mind to “think only the most beautiful things possible” he becomes as beautiful as his thoughts—or as “powerful as his thoughts” according to the use he makes of his mind.
  10. Also within it is contained the magnificent powers of one’s own ability to OVERCOME!
  11. In ruling one’s mind man becomes the Master!
  12. In using the conscious mind thus the subconscious mind is released to function in the full power and the Holy Helper is able to direct and assist one to Its fullest capacity of willing, glorious service.

 

Section 8 – The Subconscious Mind

“That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:6)

  1. The physical body is ruled and governed from the realm of the subconscious mind.
  2. The subconscious mind has been named and describe in the volume “Beyond Mortal Boundaries” which precedes this one. But it has not been fully examined as the realm of the Divine or Holy Helper.
  3. If one LOVES GOD WITH ALL HIS MIND then the subconscious realm, being cleansed and renovated, the Holy Helper is given full power to function in Its own great capacity of loving service.
  4. The renovating of the subconscious mind prepares for the full functioning of the conscious mind.
  5. In using the conscious mind thus the subconscious mind is released to function in the full power and the Holy Helper is able to direct and assist one to Its fullest capacity of willing, glorious service.

 

Section 9 -The Superconscious Mind

“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 2:16)

  1. Thus, without heartbreaking effort one can open the SUPERCONSCIOUS MIND, which is the realm of “ALL- KNOWING” or full Comprehension.
  2. It is this glorious SUPERCONSCIOUS MIND which rules the Spirit, and is in constant contact with the divine realms of glory and power and perfection.

 

Section 10 – The Three Minds

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)

  1. Thus the three minds are all part of man’s being and when united by LOVE man truly “Evolves from the man kingdom into the God Kingdom!” .
  2. It is through this uniting, by LOVE, of the three minds that one achieves the fullness of God’s PROMISE;
  3. “IF YOUR MINDS (all three of them) become single (or as one) to the glory of God your whole body shall he filled with Light and there shall be no darkness in you. And that Body which is filled with Light shall comprehend all things – And God will unveil His Face unto you!” Which is LIFE ETERNAL!

 

Section 11 – Truth

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

  1. And let me remind you that it has been because of the blindness of men’s minds, the hardness of their hearts and because of the gross wickedness of unbelief that these great and unspeakable truths have been “Hid up from the foundations of the world.”
  2. As you “hunger and thirst after righteousness” so will your supply be increased until you yourself are prepared to “come forth full formed,” “BORN OF THE SPIRIT” and glorified in truth.
  3. All the hosts of heaven are anxiously awaiting your coming forth as you are released or freed from all mortal restrictions and foul weaknesses and failings. This the great TRUTH, which one can only KNOW BY EXPERIENCING IT. “Know the Truth and the Truth will make you free,” from all the sorrows of the flesh!”
  4. It is the TRUTH of the unveiling of that which man has never before seen, nor heard from any preacher’s lips, nor yet has entered into his heart.
  5. And it must be remembered that these great and unspeakable Truths are RESERVED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD!
  6. Yes, KNOW THE TRUTH and the TRUTH will make you free from all earthly harassments and mortal bondage.
  7. This the great TRUTH, which one can only KNOW BY EXPERIENCING IT. “Know the Truth and the Truth will make you free,” from all the sorrows of the flesh!”
  8. This very training, this evolving, this developing is greater than any experience ever imagined by man. It is the TRUTH of the unveiling of that which man has never before seen, nor heard from any preacher’s lips, nor yet has entered into his heart.
