Time of Reading 3:30 to 4:00 P. M.

1. GC: You will have before you the Glad Helpers, members of which are present here, and their work in studying the Book of Revelation. You will continue to answer the questions they have prepared on the last few chapters.

2. EC: Yes, we have the group as gathered here; as a group, as individuals, and their work on the study of Revelation.

3. In continuing with that which has been given, well that you each here review within yourselves the experiences of the Revelation as related to your individual lives.

4. In this manner may you each attune yourselves to the more comprehensive understanding of the latter portion of same.

5. For the latter portion becomes again the invitation to all for all to partake of the life that is theirs, so living same in such a manner that each individual they contact in each experience of their associations may find every one different - and closer in accord with those teachings that are so a part of the Revelation; the body-Christ, the body-self, that may be one with Him.

6. Ready for questions.

7. (Q) Explain Rev. 19:9--10. To whom is John talking here? Is it Peter?
(A) That which is represented by Peter. What did Peter represent? That as had been given, "Flesh and blood hath not revealed this unto thee, but my father in heaven."

All then who have taken, who do take that which had been given as the example, as the pattern, as the manner of expression, as the acknowledgement of the activities within self, are in that position - that they have touched, do touch as it were the knowledge of God in that His ways, His laws,

His love are not only a part of their individual lives but are by them manifested in their daily life, their daily conversation, as one to another.

Yes, then - to the Peter in every experience of the body, the mind, the soul.

8. (Q) Explain the symbols of the white horse and rider in Rev. 19. Is this the Christ?
(A) This is the Christ in that it, as the horse, in the experiences of the awakening is the symbol of the messenger; and this is Christ, Jesus, the messenger.

9. (Q) Explain what is meant by the first and second resurrections.
(A) The first is of those who have not tasted death in the sense of the dread of same. The second is of those who have GAINED the understanding that in Him there IS no death.

10. (Q) What is the meaning of one thousand years that Satan is bound?
(A) Is banished. That, as there are the activities of the forty and four thousand - in the same manner that the prayer of ten just should save a city, the deeds, the prayers of the faithful will allow that period when the incarnation of those only that are in the Lord shall rule the earth, and the period is as a thousand years.

Thus is Satan bound, thus is Satan banished from the earth. The desire to do evil is only of him. And when there are - as the symbols - those only whose desire and purpose of their heart is to glorify the Father, these will be those periods when this shall come to pass.

Be YE ALL DETERMINED within thy minds, thy hearts, thy purposes, to be of that number!

11. (Q) In Rev. 21:1 what is the meaning of "a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea?"
(A) When the foundations of the earth are broken up by those very disturbances. Can the mind of man comprehend no desire to sin, no purpose but that the glory of the Son may be manifested in his life? Is this not a new heaven, a new earth? For the former things would have passed away. For as the desires, the purposes, the aims are to bring about the whole change physically, so does it create in the experience of each soul a new vision, a new comprehension.

For as has been given, it hath not entered the heart of man to know the glories that have been prepared, that are a part of the experiences of those that love ONLY the Lord and His ways.

12. (Q) Please explain 2nd thru 4th verse of Chapter 21 - the new Jerusalem and no more death.
(A) Those then that are come into the new life, the new understanding, the new regeneration, there IS then the new Jerusalem. For as has been given, the place is not as a place alone but as a condition, as an experience of the soul.

Jerusalem has figuratively, symbolically, meant the holy place, the holy city - for there the ark of the covenant, the ark of the covenant in the minds, the hearts, the understandings, the comprehensions of those who have put away earthly desires and become as the NEW purposes in their experience, become the new Jerusalem, the new undertakings, the new desires.

13. (Q) What is meant by the second death in Rev. 21-8?
(A) Those that have passed into the understanding and then fall away, become minded of the earthly desires for self- exaltation, know the second death.

14. (Q) What is meant by the Holy Jerusalem Rev. 21-12?
(A) As indicated, that purpose, that estate to which there is the attaining of those who through the purifying - as has been indicated in the earlier portion - now come to the holy purpose - as the Holy Jerusalem; the Holy of Holies becomes the dwelling as it were of those.

15. (Q) What is meant by the twelve gates?
(A) The twelve manners, the twelve ways, the twelve openings, the twelve experiences of the physical to all, and those that have all been purified in purpose for the activities with same.

16. (Q) What is the significance of the twelve angels?
(A) The twelve purposes as represented by the activities of the openings to the bodily forces for their activities in the experiences of expression in the phases of the activities of the individual.

17. (Q) Please explain the twelve names which represent the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
(A) The same as the twelve gates, the twelve angels, the twelve ways, the twelve understandings; or the approach to ISRAEL the seeker - all seeking not then as the expression of self but as ONE in the Holy One!!

18. (Q) Rev. 21-15: Please interpret - What is the golden reed to measure the city? and what is the significance of the stones of the new Jerusalem and their colors?
(A) The new understanding, the reed to measure the city, the abilities of each. Not unto all is it given to be ministers, not unto all to be interpreters, not unto all to be this or that; but measured according to that whereunto

they have purposed in their hearts. Though all are as one, remember it has been given that the purpose of the heart is to know YOURSELF to BE yourself and yet one with God even as Jesus, even as is represented in God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit; each knowing themselves to be themselves yet ONE!

So the measurements for those that make the vibrations within themselves that become attuned to the new purpose, the new desire, the new hopes, the new Revelation, the new understandings to do the will of the Father with the will of that made perfect in the Christ.

19. (Q) Rev. 22-1: Please interpret. And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb?
(A) As the river, the water, the life represents the active flow of the purpose of the souls of men made pure in same. Then they flow with that purpose from the throne of God Itself, made pure in the blood of the Lamb - which is in Jesus, the Christ, to those who seek to know His ways.

20. (Q) Rev. 22-2: What is meant by the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit that yielded her fruit every month and the leaves of the tree for the healing of the nations?
(A) That as the tree planted by the water of life; that is, as the sturdiness of the purpose of the individual in its sureness in the Christ; and the leaves represent the activities that are as for the healing of all that the individual activities may contact, even in material life. And that it is CONTINUOUS, as by the month, as for purpose, as for the activities.

21. (Q) Rev. 22-10, 11: Seal not the sayings of the prophecy, etc. and He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy be filthy still, etc.
(A) As that period approaches when there shall be those influences of the power of those incarnated in the activities of the earth, then the purposes become set as in that indicated by the activities of each being in that to which they have then given themselves.

22. (Q) Just how should this material be presented so as to be the most helpful and readable? Comment on the following:
(A) Rather than commenting (for these touch upon the same), we would give this: First let there be not one but ALL who would purpose, who have purposed to be among that number that are called of God to give to those that seek the interpretation, compare and prepare the messages that have been given; and then choose ye they that would write - and let them - yea, by day and night - find themselves even as John, moved only by the spirit of truth. Thus preparing the message.

THEN when prepared, in one SITTING read the whole TO your source of information and receive the rejections or acceptations!

23. We are through for the present.
