The Word Can Only Be Revealed to the Selfless
No one can know the true word of God until he has come to a place in his spiritual unfoldment where never, under any circumstances, would he take advantage of this spiritual knowledge for personal gain, or misuse it in any way. When one has reached that stage of unfoldment, that pure state of consciousness, then it is that the true name of God is revealed. When that time comes, no longer do you worship a God in heaven; no longer do you look to a God for reward or do you fear a God of punishment. Now you know why Christ Jesus gave as his greatest revelation:
*“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.9 . . . I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.10 . . . I and my Father are one,”11 and that Father is within me. I will always be with you. I in the midst of you am mighty.
When the sacred and secret name of God—the I—has been revealed to you, you have the Word. The fruitage of that Word is the grace of God—peace, joy, harmony, and abundance. With that sacred and secret Word in the forehead, you walk up and down this earth: You are seen as an ordinary man or woman, but your presence is felt as if you were a saint. You do not have to live by might or by power: You live solely by the Spirit of God which is now within you—by the word of God, by that secret Word, that sacred Word, that Word of power—not material or mental, but spiritual. The Word never has to be uttered because it continuously utters itself. You do not speak it; you hear it and you rest in its assurance.
As you walk up and down this earth, safe and secure in that Word, the fruitage appears outwardly as Scripture has promised. The fruitage of that Word is literally your food, your drink, your housing, and your clothing. It is your high tower. Yes, and God is the health of your countenance. You do not get health from God: God is your health. God is your safety and security; God is your peace. God never gives you anything: God is all things unto you. God, being infinite, cannot give you anything but Himself. Those who seek God for something other than the gift of Himself seek amiss and pray amiss. God is that which gives the gift of Himself as your life, your Soul, your spirit, your being, and even your body. Seek God! In finding God, you find rest, peace, harmony, joy—the fruits of the Spirit.
The life of God is the life of man. The Soul of God is the Soul of man. The Spirit of God is the Spirit of man. Even the body is the temple of the living God. And so it is that God, the Giver, appears on earth as God, the Gift—God, the Father; and God, the Son. There are not two; there is only one—God, the Father, and God, the Son, always one, never two.
The word of God is within you, and that Word you know. Do not voice it as some do, but let it voice itself to you. Let it keep assuring you: *I am ever with you. I will never leave you. If you go through the valley of the shadow of death, I will be with you. If you make your bed in hell, I will go with you. Whithersoever thou goest, I will go. I am come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly. The fruit of the Spirit is the fruit of the word of God held secretly, sacredly, and constantly within you.
