Neville Goddard Lectures: “Generation And Death”

4/21/67

This world of ours is a world of generation and death, and here, it is destined to end in the fulfillment of a book. That book is the Bible. Jesus, we’re told, is the faithful witness, the first that was raised from the dead. So we look upon this character as a divine reporter, who simply tells the story of the fulfillment of this prophecy. Everyone who experiences scripture is Jesus, everyone. There is only God in this world; there is only the Lord. The word Jesus and the word Jehovah you can just interchange them. There is nothing but Jehovah, nothing but the Lord God Jehovah.

So scripture unfolds itself in the individual, and he in whom it unfolds itself is simply the divine reporter. He tells a story that is of infinite concern to man. Not everyone will believe it, doesn’t really matter, but he tells the only true story in the world. In the Book of Zechariah, the 12th chapter, “They shall look upon me”—now listen to the pronoun—“they shall look upon me whom they have pierced and they shall mourn over him”—see the change in pronoun—“mourn over him as they would mourn over the only son, and weep as you would weep for a first born” (Zec.12:10-KJV). Now, see the change in pronoun. They shall look upon me whom they have pierced and then mourn for him. Well, the world has taken it in that spirit, and so you and I are taught to believe in something outside other than God.

The Lord God Jehovah is the only reality in the world. There is no other savior: “I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…and beside me there is no Savior” (Is. 43:3, 11). So when one comes to testify, then the world because he testifies thinks he is it…and that is not it at all. He is only a witness to the truth of the words of the Lord God Jehovah. So someone comes into the world and he experiences scripture. Having experienced it, he tells it. For in the volume of the book it is written of me, that I would experience it; as we’re told in the 40th Psalm, “In the volume of the book, in the roll of the book it is all about me” (verse 7). And so, he experiences scripture, and he tells it, and then people begin to worship it.

And so, they will look upon me whom they have pierced, and mourn over him, the one who has fulfilled scripture, and think he is something important. There is no one important but God. There is nothing but God in this world. He is your own wonderful human Imagination…that is God. May I tell you, everything in scripture is true, but everything. The most stupid to the human mind insignificant little thing is all true. So you go into a synagogue, you go into a church and you see all this. May I tell you, behind it all, not known by the priests, not known by the cardinals, not known by the pope, not known by any of them it is still a symbol of something that is true. Every little thing, if they take it from scripture, it’s all true.

Now let me share with you a letter that came to me today. This lady writes me this story. Now she has gone through all the different channels. She said, “I was not baptized. I fell in love with a man who was a Catholic. When he heard I was not baptized, well, that was to him was simply, well, the unclean, so I had to be baptized. And so, first of all, before I met him I was a Baptist, and then I became a Presbyterian, and then I became a Christian Scientist, and then I became Unity,” and she mentioned all these isms. “But when I met him, he thought I should be baptized, so I went to the Catholic church and I was baptized, and then began to take all the instruction.”

Now, this is back in 1963 this thing happened. She doesn’t tell me exactly how it culminated, if it ever did. She loves him dearly and she only speaks highly of him. Regardless of what happened, she only speaks highly of this one with whom she was in love, who wanted her to become clean by being baptized. She said, “After I went through the training in the Catholic Church I had a dream. Following this dream I just couldn’t go through with what I heard in the Catholic world, I couldn’t. But here was the dream. In my dream, I knew in the dream I was about to be shown something that was very, very, very important. I was about to be shown the Holy of Holies. And here I saw a little object, ten by twenty-four, raised as it would be, say, a temple or a tent”…call it a tent, for the word tent and tabernacle are the same in scripture…“just like something raised like a tent, covered in black cloth. And then, the cloth parted, the outer cloth parted, and then I saw within the same black cloth. Then it parted, and behind it, as I looked in, here was a box of ashes. Then, what I would consider what you would see in an apothecary, the vase store where the apothecary would mix in this jar. You could call it a jar, call it a cup, call it a chalice, call it what you will, but just what you’d see some chemist using to mix…and there it was…and then, a bone, a dead, dead bone. Here, a box of ashes, a chalice and a bone. And here, I’m going to see the Holy of Holies. And as that black curtain parted, that’s what I am seeing, and I am seeing nothing but death. Ashes, I’m seeing a bone, a dead bone, and this chalice, this cup, this apothecary mix. And here…then I awoke, completely confused. The year was 1963, the month was April. I spoke not to my priest, who was training me, because they tell us just forget all dreams. You don’t understand dreams; forget the dreams, just completely forget them. But I spoke to a friend of mine, who was a Catholic, and she said, “Well, you see, when we have a funeral of a great person like a king or a cardinal, then you have this on the altar…only for someone who is great, like a king.” Then she said, “In that same year, the month of November, our President was assassinated and I thought, well, that was it, like prophecy.”

May I tell you it hasn’t a thing to do with any assassination of any Kennedy or any other being in this world. She was seeing reality. God becomes man that man may become God. No little thing like a president, called Kennedy, or called Stalin, or called Queen Elizabeth, or any other, I would use the word junk in this world. I mean that. They’re all simply little things, little characters in a play. The one who plays the part of the king tonight does not differ from the one who shines his shoes.

She was looking right into the essence, as told us in Zechariah. You’re told this story in the Old Testament, the story of the ark. Behind that…read it in the New Testament in the 9th chapter of Hebrews…behind the curtain, the second curtain, what do you see? You see the rod of Aaron that budded (Heb.9:2-5). That bone she saw, that is the rod of Aaron. Behind it you see everything—it’s death. God died that I may be made alive. “Unless I die thou canst not live; but if I die, I shall arise again and thou with me” (Blake, Jer., Plt.96). So it’s the mystery of a seed falling into the ground—and this [body] is the ground, this is Adam—and it must die to be made alive…God’s creative power buried in me. And that creative power buried in me must die, like every seed…the mystery of life through death.

So the seed dies and brings forth whatever it was who dropped that seed. So God dropped it? Well, all ends must bear after the kind that dropped it. That is fundamental in scripture: all ends must run true to the origin. The origin is God?—alright, the end is God. An apple tree drops a little seed, then the fruit must be an apple. No matter what drops it, it comes forth after its kind. God dropped his seed in me, which is his power, then when it comes forward out of me, then it has to be God. And I am the red earth, called Adam. He drops his seed in me. So she parts the curtain and she sees behind the second curtain, as told you in the 9th chapter of Hebrews, and she sees the rod of Aaron. That rod is my own spinal cord, which one day will bud and bring forth this fantastic picture that was prophesied in the beginning.

So who is Jesus Christ? A witness, the first, and everyone who witnesses to the truth of scripture is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is simply the power of God, the creative power of God and the wisdom of God; and you can’t separate the power of God from God. So listen to the 12th chapter of Zechariah, “And they will look upon me”—listen to the pronoun—“look upon me whom they have pierced.” Now it changes from the first person into the third person, “They shall look upon me whom they have pierced and then they will mourn for him.” So someone comes into the world, the reporter, and he tells them what has happened to him. And all of a sudden, the world makes a little idol of him. He hadn’t a thing to do with it, it’s all Jehovah. It is all God unfolding in us. So why make an idol of anyone in whom it unfolds?—he’s only a reporter. He’s a divine reporter, telling the story to the world that scripture is true. So it doesn’t matter what happens in the world.

I tell you, it’s going to unfold in you. Every word of scripture will prove true and you’ll get it in visions, you’ll get it in all these wonderful dreams. And then suddenly the whole thing unfolds in you, and everything told in scripture of Jesus Christ you will experience, therefore you are he. Jesus Christ is only the power and the wisdom of God that was buried in man, which is God himself. And so, “Unless I die”—this is God speaking—“thou cannot live; but if I die I shall arise again and thou with me.” So it turns to ash. How can you turn to ash and a dead bone and still come out of that? Read Ezekiel, how the dead bones became alive once more (Ezek.37:11). This is the story. There is nothing but this story in the world.

So I tell you try it, test it. I cannot prove what I have experienced, but I can tell you how to prove that you do have that power: you have the power by simply assuming that you are the man that you would like to be now in this world. If you do not waver and you are faithful to that assumption, you’ll become it. Every being in this world that can play a part equal to the part necessary to make it true in your world will play that part, without their knowledge, without their consent. You don’t have to ask anyone for any permission to play it. You dare to assume I am…and you name it. You want wealth, you want fame, you want this, whatever you do. And the world is only yourself pushed out. There’s only Jehovah, there’s only God, and therefore everyone who can assist in the birth of that assumption will assist, without their knowledge, without their consent.

Prove that…prove that first, and you’ll believe what I tell you concerning this fantastic story, where God actually awakes in you and you are he, and there’s nothing but God. So when we come out we’re the sons of God, all of us sons of God. And it takes all of his sons to make the Father. Everyone will come out. Regardless of your sex…forget sex…it is only for this little world where we are divided for this reason. But in the end we all awaken, all awake as God.

So here, we are living in a world of generation and death. This world exists to end in the fulfillment of a book, and that book is the Bible. Every word of it will prove true, so do not add to it and do not take from it, leave it just as it is. When you read all these commentaries…now, today, I was reading this passage…and here, the King James Version will use the right pronoun and they used the pronoun “me.” Then I turn over, because I had it in parallel passages, and I turned to the Revised Standard Version, a wonderful translation, they couldn’t bring themselves, these scholars, to use what is said right there in Hebrew and they had to change it to “him.” It made sense to the scholar. And so, they now translate it, “And they shall look upon him whom they have pierced” and yet the Hebrew is “me.” Hasn’t a thing to do with him…I am pierced. There’s only I AM. There’s nothing about “him”…I AM. “Go and tell them, I AM the Lord your God. When they ask you who sent you, just say I AM, that’s the name” (Ex.3:14). Read the words, all through Revelation, “I AM he who is, who was, and who is to be.” Here is this fantastic story, a story of redemption, personified as a person. Because, God being man God is man. May I tell you, he is man. So when you stand in the presence of this infinite being that is God, infinite love, it’s man. Because he’s man, every quality of God must be personified. If it’s horror, it takes man to express it. If it is love, it takes man to be his agent. If it is hate, it’s man to be its agent. Everything is God, therefore, everything is man. For God is man.

Let no one tell you it is not man. I tell you, I know from experience God is man, not some impersonal force, like some strange thing moving through the world. No. God is man, infinite love. When you stand in the presence of this infinite being, the Ancient of Days, it is all love. All of his attributes must be personified and it takes a man to express every quality of God. So if you are a hateful being, alright, so hate must be expressed through the agent of a man. So I say, here in this wonderful picture, he said, “I am he who is, who was and who is to be.”

So here is this wonderful story of redemption, personified, and it’s called Jesus Christ, because he actually experienced it. “He” I say now, because I would speak of you. You experience it? I hope you do. I know in this audience tonight one has experienced almost the whole. And here we are told in this story, when it comes into the world it only takes three and a half years. The eternal drama is compressed within three and a half years. As told us in the Book of Daniel, a time, times and half a time. A “time” is a year, times two, and half a time is three and a half years. In the Book of Revelation, one thousand two hundred and sixty days, that’s three and a half years. In Revelation it speaks of forty-two months, well, that’s three and a half years. And here we find time, times and half a time, so when the drama begins to unfold within man it only takes that eternal story three and a half years.

Only as eternity invades time do we really find the true meaning of life in time. What am I here for? To get killed tomorrow in battle? To make a million dollars? To become famous? To be dishonored? Is that the purpose? No. This goes on…this is slavery. Then, eternity descends, and eternity is forever, it is always taking place, descends upon man from within man. Because above and within are the same. All of a sudden, eternity awakens in man and is compressed within three and a half years. In three and a half years the whole drama is over. And he now tells his story.

Well, who tells the story to the world? Jesus Christ. So Jesus Christ is the personification of the fulfillment of scripture. “I have come to fulfill scripture,” as we’re told in the 22nd chapter of Luke (verse 37). That’s all that I have come for. “And beginning with Moses in the law and the prophets and the psalms, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:44). “For in the volume of the book it is written of me” (Ps.40:7). And so, the one in whom scripture unfolds is simply Jesus Christ, there is nothing but that. But Jesus Christ is simply the witness. It is the Lord God Jehovah that is the cause of it all. So he, the witness, when he fulfills it, it was God who sent himself in; then at the end he is the Lord God Jehovah. You get it?

This is the great mystery. And you are destined to fulfill scripture…everyone is. In the meanwhile, you play it fully. You want to be famous? Alright, dare to assume that you are. That assumption is an act of faith. For without faith we cannot please him. We’re told that only two things displease the Lord God Jehovah and one is the absence of faith in “I am he”. “Unless you believe that I am he, you die in your sins” (John 8:24). So that is one that displeases. The second is the eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. You say that one is evil and that one is good, and you judge him by your own standards. May I tell you…let me quote from Blake, who saw it so clearly. First of all, he makes the statement, “Eternity exists and all things in eternity, independent of Creation, which was an act of mercy.” Science has just come around to it. This was written back in the 18th Century. He was born in 1757. It was in that Century that he wrote it, that eternity exists and all things in eternity independent of Creation, which was an act of mercy.

Now, said he, “By this you can see I do not consider that either the just or the wicked are in a supreme state, but everyone in a state into which they have fallen.” You fall into a state of so-called justice, so-called riches, these are only “states which the soul may fall into as it leaves paradise following the serpent.” And you think, “Why should he use the word serpent?” May I tell you, he couldn’t use any other word. Read the 6th chapter of Isaiah…couldn’t use any other word. Isaiah stood before the throne of God, what did he see? And I tell you from my own experience that’s all that you can say…the serpent…and so the exodus in the world when we are led out of this world of tribulation, called the world of death, called Egypt, called in Bible the exodus. It is always with signs and wonders, and the serpent dominates the entire sign. “As Moses lifted us the sign in the wilderness, that is, the serpent, so must the Son of man be lifted up.” So I, the Son of man, I’m lifted up in the same way; just as this is done in scripture the whole thing unfolds itself in us. You are the book. You are the Bible. The whole thing is contained within you. And you come out of this world of generation and death by fulfilling scripture. Believe me. I’m speaking from experience.

So, they pierce me and then look at him, and mourn over him. And there is no one there; there’s only God. So I am pierced, may I tell you, and the piercing was the most glorious thing in the world. You were taught to believe that it was the most horrible pain. Don’t believe it. I am telling you from experience that crucifixion was the most glorious thing in the world. My hands were vortices, my head a vortex, my side a vortex, and my feet vortices. And here, the six-pointed star of David, this Mogen David, just simply pierced me, and my whole being was just simply one whirling series of vortices. And what a joy! When I heard the voice within me saying, “I laid myself down within you to sleep, and as I slept I dreamed a dream. I dreamed…” and I knew exactly what he was going to say, “I dreamed I am you.” He is actually dreaming that he is the being that is talking to you. He is dreaming that he’s the being to whom I’m speaking.

And this was a complete crucifixion…where God laid himself down. No one took his life from him, as taught in the world. He said, “No one takes my life, I lay it down myself. I have the power to lay it down, and the power to lift it up again” (John 10:18). It was a complete self-dedication to raise himself from this world of death. Now he said, “In this world you have tribulation”—who doesn’t? I’ve had it, you have it—“but, he said, be of good cheer, I’ve overcome the world. The last enemy to be overcome is death.” So he tells you, I’ve overcome the world, and yet, here he’s talking to you in the world. Yet I have overcome the world, as told us in the end of the 16th of John. “I’ve overcome it, so be of good cheer. For what I have done you will do.” “I came out from the Father”—there’s nothing but the Father, the Lord God Jehovah—“and I came into the world; again, I’m leaving the world and I’m going to the Father” (verse 28).

Now, if the Father is in you, as I’m taught in scripture, for his name is I AM, can you say “I am” and point elsewhere? You can’t. There’s nobody outside of God, I AM. So he is in you; the very core of your being is the Father. Well, if I leave this world and you simply cry, you regret my departure, where did I go? So he said, “Do not hold me,” to Mary, “for I am not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren (that’s you)and say to them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God” (John 20:17). So if one departs and you do not see him any more physically and he departs from the world that is visible to you but he goes to the Father which is your Father, and to his God who is your God, where does he go?

So he is nearer by departing than he was when he appeared, having fulfilled scripture. He is much nearer. In fact, you can’t even use the word near, for nearness would imply separation and you can’t separate from I AM. So when he departs in this world, he only returns to the Father and the Father is in you. So, from that moment on, and you turn to him, it’s all within yourself. And everyone who fulfills scripture is simply fulfilling the greatness of the Father in you. It becomes greater and greater and greater. So where would he go if he goes to the Father and the Father is in you? So do not regret the departure of the one who at the moment is but teacher, and you think he is it. He is not it. It is only God. And so they pierce me and mourn for him. Get it? Don’t read it just on the surface. You read the whole thing. The pronoun is important. The King James Version gives it and holds it alive. The Revised Standard to make it more, I would say, “natural” has changed the pronoun. But, luckily, they have given in the footnote the real pronoun: “And they who have pierced me, well, they mourn for him as they morn for the only son, for a first born.”

And so, someone departs and you think, My Lord, he is the important thing, and you may build some little icon, some little thing, and make a little picture of it. That’s not it. His name is always I AM. And you would never find him until you find him through scripture. When the Son appears before you and calls you Father, then you know him. And he happens to be the very being that is calling you Father, and it’s I AM. So he stands before you and calls you, Father. When he calls you Father, you will say “I am his father and he is my son,” and that one is called David.

May I tell you, I don’t care what the world will tell you, that is the only begotten Son of God (Ps. 2:7). It’s simply his creative power personified. Because, God being man…every attribute…and when his creative power is brought to perfection, and he’s completely fulfilled it all and overcome death, David appears. For David is the conqueror of the world, the whole vast world; and the last enemy to be overcome is death. He conquers it all. All the enemies of Israel David conquers, then he sets his Father free, as you’re told in the Book of Samuel (1Sam. 17:25). He sets his Father free by conquering enemies of Israel. And so David stands before you and he calls you Father; then you know who you are. So in the end there is only the Lord God Jehovah, there’s nothing but. “I am the Lord God Jehovah, your Savior…and besides me there is no Savior.” Read it in the 43rd and the 45th of Isaiah. So when he is born who is born but God?

But now, don’t take the witness and make of the witness some little god. He is only a witness of the truth of the word of the Lord God Jehovah. He testifies to the truth of scripture. And man has made him an idol. So the word Jesus means Jehovah. It’s Joshua, it’s the Anglicized form of Joshua. “Jehovah saves,” that’s what it means. So when someone has proved that this salvation is true and then becomes a witness, and then tells it, and then those who hear it will take the witness and make of the witness some little god, they’re worshipping a false god. Accept the witness and then continue in the hope that you too will become a witness. So in the end, all are gathered into one body, one spirit, one God and Father of us all, who is above all, and through all and in all. That God is the Lord God Jehovah, nothing but.

So tonight, we only have two more left, you dwell upon it and then test it, test the power of God in this world. An assumption on your part, if you really believe it, is faith. Without faith it is impossible to please him, as told us in the 11th chapter of Hebrews, “Without faith it is impossible to please him.” An assumption is an act of faith. I dare to assume that I am the man that I would like to be. I’ll put him to the test. Come test yourself and see. Then I walk as though I were that which I would like to be and then it happens in my world.

Well now, others may be instrumental in bringing it to pass. But don’t praise anyone… do the normal thing, “thank you, thank you, thank you for the part you played,” but don’t for one second believe that they were causation; they were instrumental, they were not causes. I don’t care who they are in this world, everyone who plays the part to bring to pass the fulfillment of my assumption are only playing the part they have to play based upon my assumption. So if I dare to assume, that is an act of faith…that pleases God. So I please him by assuming that I am or that you are or that we are what I know all would like to be. Then walking in that assumption, it comes to pass.

But now, as I look over the whole scene and see it happened this way, that way, well now, don’t take all these little things and praise them and put them up as little gods who are playing their little parts. No, they’re only simply expressions of the being that you are when you dared to assume. Therefore, do not take God’s creative power, which is personified in scripture as Jesus Christ, and make of it a god. Everyone in whom scripture unfolds is Jesus Christ. But that is only the unfoldment of God’s power, and God’s power unfolding as Jesus Christ, fulfilling scripture, wonderful! but don’t forget the one who is pierced. Who is pierced? I AM. That is God. So, God in man…God became man that man may become God. “Unless I die thou canst not live, but if I die I shall arise again and thou with me.”

Now let us go into the Silence.

* * *

___(??)she was about to see the Holy of Holies and she could not understand how that could be, for she saw nothing but death. She opened up the black curtain, that is, the curtain parted, and behind it a box of ashes and a bone, a dead, dead bone. Then a chalice, just a cup that the apothecary would use, the chemist would use. She woke, bewildered, because she was told, “You’re seeing the Holy of Holies.” That is the most innermost sanctuary, where behind that curtain that was parted is the ark of God. Here, behind that curtain is the rod of Aaron that budded. And here, every essential is there, and you see nothing but death. The mystery of life out of death: God died…and then you and I awake as God. He actually empties himself, abdicates his divine form, and becomes us. Then, after this strange journey through Egypt, which is the world, he brings us out, our exodus, by this, I would say, condensed, this strange salvation history, taking only three and a half years, this 1,260 days. The minute it begins to take place you are brought out of Egypt by these signs and wonders. Egypt could be in America, could be in Egypt, could be in Africa, could be in China, any part of the world when this salvation history hits you and you’re brought out…three and a half years, or a time, times and half a time.

I am telling you what I know from experience. I am not theorizing, I am not speculating, just telling exactly what happened to me. And I do not differ from anyone save in this one respect, it has happened to me. But that does not put me apart and make me someone better. It’s simply that I have finished the journey, that’s all, and with me death is over. This little garment will simply disappear. But I return no more, that’s all. But don’t think for one second that I am selected in the sense of being better than, because there is only God, who is simply awakening. But when I go there’s no place for me to go but to my Father and my Father is in us. So whenever that happens and you seek me, seek me there.

Now are there any questions, please?

Q: Would you repeat again, please, what you said about “I have not yet ascended unto the Father. Touch me not, for I have not yet ascended.”

A: Right. Mary, in the Book of John, it’s the end of John, I think it’s the 20th chapter…and here he turns to Mary and said to her, “Hold me not”—some translations have it, ‘Touch me not,’ but one has ‘Hold me not’—“for I have not yet ascended to my Father; but go unto my brothers and tell my brothers this, that I am ascending to my Father and to your Father, to my God and to your God” (John 20:17).

Well here, if I have ascended to the Father in its true sense of the word, I could not now be speaking to you. Because no one could then see that if I ascend to the Father, I am the Father. And yet I am speaking to you, you would see me, and no one can see the Father but the Son. “No one knows who the Father is but the Son, and no one knows who the Son is but the Father” (Mat.11:27). And that Son is David; it takes David to reveal the Father. So if you are looking at me, this thing called Neville, a bit of clay that will, tomorrow, turn to dust, this will turn to ash, and if you think this is he, then you’re wrong. I’m only a witness. I witness to the truth of scripture. But when I leave and depart this world, I will return to my Father, and I and my Father are one.

So, do not hold me. Do not keep me back. People will say, “Well, let him live longer. Let him remain in the world longer because we need him.” Do not hold me back. Do not hold me, let me go to my Father. Having witnessed the truth of scripture, then let me go, for I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. So believe my testimony. I have testified to the truth of scripture, so do not hold me back. She would hold him back, the world would hold him back and perpetuate him here in the world, while the little old body gets weaker and weaker until finally they would disdain him, he who testified to the truth of scripture. And so, let it be. Let him go. But when he goes, where does he go? He goes to the Father. Where’s the Father?—-in you. Where is the God?—in you. And, therefore, if he goes, where would you seek him? Go to Barbados to find him? You won’t find him there. You go into some church, some holy place to find him? You won’t find him there. You could find him standing at a bar, while you have enjoyed a nice martini, and dwelling within yourself, and he’d speak to you. Because, he, too, while he was on earth he liked a martini.

So this is scripture. The whole vast world unfolds in us. And when one departs having fulfilled scripture…if you don’t fulfill scripture, you don’t go to the Father. Yes, you’ll meet them in the world into which you will go if you have not fulfilled scripture. Death is not death. May I tell you, nothing dies…not a thing in this world dies. The little flower that blooms once blooms forever. Doesn’t die at all…nothing dies. And so, death here does not mean death, it just means a change of scene. But you’re in a world just as real as this, as solidly real, going through experiences. But when you fulfill scripture, then you leave the world of generation and death and return to the Father. And returning to the Father, you return to the only God.

So do not hold one back. He said, “Do not hold me. I have not yet ascended.” If I can speak to you, then I have not yet ascended to the Father, because if I had ascended to the Father, you couldn’t see me. For no one can see the Father but the Son. As told you in the 18th verse of the 1st chapter of John, “No one has ever seen God; but the only begotten Son, in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.” Only if the Son reveals the Father could you know that you are the Father. But if anyone tells you while you’re talking to the person that he is the Father, don’t believe him. Because, when you actually see the Father, you’ll only see him in the presence of your Son who calls you Father. The feeling that possesses you when it happens is the Ancient of Days. You are not some little thing here on earth; you are the Ancient of Days, when that Son calls you Father. I can’t describe it…you’re just the Ancient of Days when David stands before you and David calls you Father, in the fulfillment of the 89th Psalm. You fulfill the scripture, “I have found David…and he has cried unto me, ‘Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation” (verse 26). So here, I tell you this world exists to end in the fulfillment of a book, and the book is scripture.

Thank you.
