I love sharing my LARGE pieces Sorry if its a bit much, but its all so good.
I have put my favourite part in bold...
(1447.5) 131:4.1 The missionaries of Melchizedek carried the teachings of the one God with them wherever they
journeyed. Much of this monotheistic doctrine, together with other and previous concepts, became
embodied in the subsequent teachings of Hinduism. Jesus and Ganid made the following excerpts:
(1448.1) 131:4.2 “He is the great God, in every way supreme. He is the Lord who encompasses all things. He is
the creator and controller of the universe of universes. God is one God; he is alone and by himself; he is
the only one. And this one God is our Maker and the last destiny of the soul. The Supreme One is brilliant
beyond description; he is the Light of Lights. Every heart and every world is illuminated by this divine light.
God is our protector — he stands by the side of his creatures — and those who learn to know him become
immortal. God is the great source of energy; he is the Great Soul. He exercises universal lordship over all.
This one God is loving, glorious, and adorable. Our God is supreme in power and abides in the supreme
abode. This true Person is eternal and divine; he is the primal Lord of heaven. All the prophets have hailed
him, and he has revealed himself to us. We worship him. O Supreme Person, source of beings, Lord of
creation, and ruler of the universe, reveal to us, your creatures, the power whereby you abide immanent!
God has made the sun and the stars; he is bright, pure, and self-existent. His eternal knowledge is divinely
wise. The Eternal is unpenetrated by evil. Inasmuch as the universe sprang from God, he does rule it
appropriately. He is the cause of creation, and hence are all things established in him.
(1448.2) 131:4.3 “God is the sure refuge of every good man when in need; the Immortal One cares for all
mankind. God’s salvation is strong and his kindness is gracious. He is a loving protector, a blessed
defender. Says the Lord: ‘I dwell within their own souls as a lamp of wisdom. I am the splendor of the
splendid and the goodness of the good. Where two or three gather together, there am I also.’ The creature
cannot escape the presence of the Creator. The Lord even counts the ceaseless winking of every mortal’s
eyes; and we worship this divine Being as our inseparable companion. He is all-prevailing, bountiful,
omnipresent, and infinitely kind. The Lord is our ruler, shelter, and supreme controller, and his primeval
spirit dwells within the mortal soul. The Eternal Witness to vice and virtue dwells within man’s heart. Let us
long meditate on the adorable and divine Vivifier; let his spirit fully direct our thoughts. From this unreal
world lead us to the real! From darkness lead us to the light! From death guide us to immortality!
(1448.3) 131:4.4 “With our hearts purged of all hate, let us worship the Eternal. Our God is the Lord of prayer;
he hears the cry of his children. Let all men submit their wills to him, the Resolute. Let us delight in the
liberality of the Lord of prayer. Make prayer your inmost friend and worship your soul’s support. ‘If you will
but worship me in love,’ says the Eternal, ‘I will give you the wisdom to attain me, for my worship is the
virtue common to all creatures.’ God is the illuminator of the gloomy and the power of those who are faint.
Since God is our strong friend, we have no more fear. We praise the name of the never-conquered
Conqueror. We worship him because he is man’s faithful and eternal helper. God is our sure leader and
unfailing guide. He is the great parent of heaven and earth, possessed of unlimited energy and infinite
wisdom. His splendor is sublime and his beauty divine. He is the supreme refuge of the universe and the
changeless guardian of everlasting law. Our God is the Lord of life and the Comforter of all men; he is the
lover of mankind and the helper of those who are distressed. He is our life giver and the Good Shepherd of
the human flocks. God is our father, brother, and friend. And we long to know this God in our inner being.
(1448.4) 131:4.5 “We have learned to win faith by the yearning of our hearts. We have attained wisdom by the
restraint of our senses, and by wisdom we have experienced peace in the Supreme. He who is full of faith
worships truly when his inner self is intent upon God. Our God wears the heavens as a mantle; he also
inhabits the other six wide-spreading universes. He is supreme over all and in all. We crave forgiveness
from the Lord for all of our trespasses against our fellows; and we would release our friend from the wrong
he has done us. Our spirit loathes all evil; therefore, O Lord, free us from all taint of sin. We pray to God
as a comforter, protector, and savior — one who loves us.
(1449.1) 131:4.6 “The spirit of the Universe Keeper enters the soul of the simple creature. That man is wise who
worships the One God. Those who strive for perfection must indeed know the Lord Supreme. He never fears
who knows the blissful security of the Supreme, for the Supreme says to those who serve him, ‘Fear not,
for I am with you.’ The God of providence is our Father. God is truth. And it is the desire of God that his
creatures should understand him — come fully to know the truth. Truth is eternal; it sustains the universe.
Our supreme desire shall be union with the Supreme. The Great Controller is the generator of all things —
all evolves from him. And this is the sum of duty: Let no man do to another what would be repugnant to
himself; cherish no malice, smite not him who smites you, conquer anger with mercy, and vanquish hate
by benevolence. And all this we should do because God is a kind friend and a gracious father who remits
all our earthly offenses.
(1449.2) 131:4.7 “God is our Father, the earth our mother, and the universe our birthplace. Without God the soul
is a prisoner; to know God releases the soul. By meditation on God, by union with him, there comes
deliverance from the illusions of evil and ultimate salvation from all material fetters. When man shall roll up
space as a piece of leather, then will come the end of evil because man has found God. O God, save us
from the threefold ruin of hell — lust, wrath, and avarice! O soul, gird yourself for the spirit struggle of
immortality! When the end of mortal life comes, hesitate not to forsake this body for a more fit and
beautiful form and to awake in the realms of the Supreme and Immortal, where there is no fear, sorrow,
hunger, thirst, or death. To know God is to cut the cords of death. The God-knowing soul rises in the
universe like the cream appears on top of the milk. We worship God, the all-worker, the Great Soul, who is
ever seated in the heart of his creatures. And they who know that God is enthroned in the human heart are
destined to become like him — immortal. Evil must be left behind in this world, but virtue follows the soul
(1449.3) 131:4.8 “It is only the wicked who say: The universe has neither truth nor a ruler; it was only designed
for our lusts. Such souls are deluded by the smallness of their intellects. They thus abandon themselves to
the enjoyment of their lusts and deprive their souls of the joys of virtue and the pleasures of righteousness.
What can be greater than to experience salvation from sin? The man who has seen the Supreme is
immortal. Man’s friends of the flesh cannot survive death; virtue alone walks by man’s side as he journeysever onward toward the gladsome and sunlit fields of Paradise.”
