The Book of Truth echoes the promise of the Book of Revelation to Christa€™s followers to stand firm in the faith without compromise, even in the face of martyrdom, and to trust in the fulfillment of Goda€™s mighty promise. Special Philippine EditionThe Book of Truth (Volume 1, 2,  3 and 4) now has a special edition for residents of the Philippines.

Your so-called tolerant Teachings proclaimed a series of lies, including the refusal to acknowledge the power of St.
At the same time these disciples all became conscious of a new and profound sense of spiritual joy, security, and confidence.
The Mission of many Holy Popes who have sat in the Seat of Peter has always been protected.
This new consciousness of spiritual strength was immediately followed by a strong urge to go out and publicly proclaim the gospel of the kingdom and the good news that Jesus had risen from the dead. Many Popes have been prisoners in the Holy See, surrounded by Masonic groups who have spent fifty years spreading untruths, which led to the collapse of the Catholic Church.
This caused a lack of communication with those whom you needed to nourish with My Body and Blood.
And so they went forth, endowed with power from on high, preaching glad tidings to the peoplea€”even salvation through Jesusa€”but they unintentionally stumbled into the error of substituting some of the facts associated with the gospel for the gospel message itself. Peter unwittingly led off in this mistake, and others followed after him on down to Paul, who created a new religion out of the new version of the good news. Christianity, as it developed from that day, is: the fact of God as the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, in association with the experience of believer-fellowship with the risen and glorified Christ. At such a time as this it was easier to remember their personal association with Jesus and to be thrilled with the assurance that the Master still lived, that their friendship had not ended, and that the spirit had indeed come upon them even as he had promised. The Master had told them the kingdom would come with power, and some of them thought they were beginning to discern what he meant. This day happened to be the Jewish festival of Pentecost, and thousands of visitors from all parts of the world were in Jerusalem. Now these frightened apostles emerged from their weeks of seclusion to appear boldly in the temple, where they began to preach the new message of a risen Messiah. And all the disciples were likewise conscious of having received some new spiritual endowment of insight and power. The Master had gone, but they suddenly discovered that this story about him had great power with the people. No wonder they were led on into the further proclamation of that which vindicated their former devotion to Jesus and at the same time so constrained men to believe in him. Six of the apostles participated in this meeting: Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, and Matthew. They talked for more than an hour and a half and delivered messages in Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic, as well as a few words in even other tongues with which they had a speaking acquaintance. It was, therefore, the more easy for large numbers of both the Jews and believing gentiles to submit to baptism on this day. All of them, including the apostles, were still loyal to the essential requirements of the Jewish ceremonial system.2.
Jesusa€™ message, as he preached it and lived it in his day, was an effective solvent for mana€™s spiritual difficulties in that day of its statement.
And now that he has personally left the world, he sends in his place his Spirit of Truth, who is designed to live in man and, for each new generation, to restate the Jesus message so that every new group of mortals to appear upon the face of the earth shall have a new and up-to-date version of the gospel, just such personal enlightenment and group guidance as will prove to be an effective solvent for mana€™s ever-new and varied spiritual difficulties. Jesus having been among men, all believers would experience a sense of loneliness had not the Spirit of Truth come to dwell in mena€™s hearts. In a certain sense, this Spirit of Truth is the spirit of both the Universal Father and the Creator Son.
The spirit never creates a consciousness of himself, only a consciousness of Michael, the Son.
The proof, therefore, of your fellowship with the Spirit of Truth is not to be found in your consciousness of this spirit but rather in your experience of enhanced fellowship with Michael.
This life in the flesh, together with his death on the cross and subsequent resurrection, presently became a new gospel of the ransom which had thus been paid in order to purchase man back from the clutch of the evil onea€”from the condemnation of an offended God. Nevertheless, even though the gospel did become greatly distorted, it remains a fact that this new message about Jesus carried along with it many of the fundamental truths and teachings of his earlier gospel of the kingdom. And, sooner or later, these concealed truths of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of men will emerge to effectually transform the civilization of all mankind. In less than a month after the bestowal of the Spirit of Truth, the apostles made more individual spiritual progress than during their almost four years of personal and loving association with the Master.
Neither did this substitution of the fact of the resurrection of Jesus for the saving gospel truth of sonship with God in any way interfere with the rapid spread of their teachings; on the contrary, this overshadowing of Jesusa€™ message by the new teachings about his person and resurrection seemed greatly to facilitate the preaching of the good news.
The early evolutionary races of mortals are subject to the progressive contact of the seven adjutant mind-spirits of the local universe Mother Spirit.
As man progresses upward in the scale of intelligence and spiritual perception, there eventually come to hover over him and dwell within him the seven higher spirit influences.
The spirit presence of the Eternal Sona€”the spirit gravity of the universe of universes and the certain channel of all spirit communion.
The spirit presence of the Infinite Spirita€”the universal spirit-mind of all creation, the spiritual source of the intellectual kinship of all progressive intelligences. The spirit of the Universal Father and the Creator Sona€”the Spirit of Truth, generally regarded as the spirit of the Universe Son.
The spirit of the Infinite Spirit and the Universe Mother Spirita€”the Holy Spirit, generally regarded as the spirit of the Universe Spirit. The mind-spirit of the Universe Mother Spirita€”the seven adjutant mind-spirits of the local universe. The spirit of the Father, Sons, and Spiritsa€”the new-name spirit of the ascending mortals of the realms after the fusion of the mortal spirit-born soul with the Paradise Thought Adjuster and after the subsequent attainment of the divinity and glorification of the status of the Paradise Corps of the Finality.

In subsequent times the events of this day, on which the Spirit of Truth, the new teacher, came to dwell with mankind, have become confused with the foolish outbreaks of rampant emotionalism. The chief mission of this outpoured spirit of the Father and the Son is to teach men about the truths of the Fathera€™s love and the Sona€™s mercy.
These are the truths of divinity which men can comprehend more fully than all the other divine traits of character. The Spirit of Truth is concerned primarily with the revelation of the Fathera€™s spirit nature and the Sona€™s moral character. The Creator Son, in the flesh, revealed God to men; the Spirit of Truth, in the heart, reveals the Creator Son to men. When man yields the "fruits of the spirit" in his life, he is simply showing forth the traits which the Master manifested in his own earthly life. As the indwelling spirit of the a€?new teacher,a€? the Master has, since Pentecost, been able to live his life anew in the experience of every truth-taught believer. And the life and death of Jesus are the eternal proof that the truth of goodness and the faith of the spirit-led creature will always be vindicated. The religions of pessimistic despair seek to obtain release from the burdens of life; they crave extinction in endless slumber and rest. The religion of Jesus does not seek to escape this life in order to enjoy the waiting bliss of another existence.
The religion of Jesus provides the joy and peace of another and spiritual existence to enhance and ennoble the life which men now live in the flesh.
On the cross he refused to drink the deadening drug, and his spirit, poured out upon all flesh, is a mighty world influence which leads man upward and urges him onward. The spiritual forward urge is the most powerful driving force present in this world; the truth-learning believer is the one progressive and aggressive soul on earth. It is forever true, a€?Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.a€? On this day the Spirit of Truth became the personal gift from the Master to every mortal. This spirit was bestowed for the purpose of qualifying believers more effectively to preach the gospel of the kingdom, but they mistook the experience of receiving the outpoured spirit for a part of the new gospel which they were unconsciously formulating. The one hundred and twenty men and women assembled in the upper chamber all received the new teacher, as did all the honest of heart throughout the whole world.
This new teacher was bestowed upon mankind, and every soul received him in accordance with the love for truth and the capacity to grasp and comprehend spiritual realities.
At last, true religion is delivered from the custody of priests and all sacred classes and finds its real manifestation in the individual souls of men. The fact of Jesusa€™ earthly life provides a fixed point for the anchor of time, while the bestowal of the Spirit of Truth provides for the everlasting expansion and endless growth of the religion which he lived and the gospel which he proclaimed. The spirit guides into all truth; he is the teacher of an expanding and always-growing religion of endless progress and divine unfolding. This new teacher will be forever unfolding to the truth-seeking believer that which was so divinely folded up in the person and nature of the Son of Man.
The gospel of the kingdom was to be identified with no particular race, culture, or language. This day of Pentecost witnessed the great effort of the spirit to liberate the religion of Jesus from its inherited Jewish fetters.
Even after this demonstration of pouring out the spirit upon all flesh, the apostles at first endeavored to impose the requirements of Judaism upon their converts. Even Paul had trouble with his Jerusalem brethren because he refused to subject the gentiles to these Jewish practices. No revealed religion can spread to all the world when it makes the serious mistake of becoming permeated with some national culture or associated with established racial, social, or economic practices. When the spirit came upon those assembled in the upper chamber, they were simply sitting there, having just been engaged in silent prayer. It was not necessary for the apostles to go apart to a lonely place for years of solitary meditation in order to receive the spirit.
For all time, Pentecost disassociates the idea of spiritual experience from the notion of especially favorable environments.
They are to go out to conquer the world with unfailing forgiveness, matchless good will, and abounding love. They are equipped to overcome evil with good, to vanquish hate by love, to destroy fear with a courageous and living faith in truth.
Jesus had already taught his followers that his religion was never passive; always were his disciples to be active and positive in their ministry of mercy and in their manifestations of love. There was but one victor; there was only one who came out of these embittered struggles with an enhanced reputationa€”that was Jesus of Nazareth and his gospel of overcoming evil with good.
The secret of a better civilization is bound up in the Mastera€™s teachings of the brotherhood of man, the good will of love and mutual trust. After Pentecost, in the brotherhood of the kingdom woman stood before God on an equality with man. Among the one hundred and twenty who received this special visitation of the spirit were many of the women disciples, and they shared these blessings equally with the men believers. The Pharisee might go on thanking God that he was a€?not born a woman, a leper, or a gentile,a€? but among the followers of Jesus woman has been forever set free from all religious discriminations based on sex. Pentecost obliterated all religious discrimination founded on racial distinction, cultural differences, social caste, or sex prejudice. At Pentecost they gave themselves to God, and the Father and the Son responded by giving themselves to mana€”sending their spirits to live within men. This experience of losing self and finding the spirit was not one of emotion; it was an act of intelligent self-surrender and unreserved consecration. When the spirit descended on the disciples at Jerusalem, the same thing happened in Philadelphia, Alexandria, and at all other places where true believers dwelt. It was literally true that a€?there was but one heart and soul among the multitude of the believers.a€? The religion of Jesus is the most powerful unifying influence the world has ever known.

It is this spirit of self-assertiveness which so increases in tension that it periodically breaks loose in destructive wars. Mankind can be unified only by the spiritual approach, and the Spirit of Truth is a world influence which is universal.
The material spirit of selfishness has been swallowed up in this new spiritual bestowal of selflessness.
Pentecost, then and now, signifies that the Jesus of history has become the divine Son of living experience. The joy of this outpoured spirit, when it is consciously experienced in human life, is a tonic for health, a stimulus for mind, and an unfailing energy for the soul. Prayer does not move the divine heart to liberality of bestowal, but it does so often dig out larger and deeper channels wherein the divine bestowals may flow to the hearts and souls of those who thus remember to maintain unbroken communion with their Maker through sincere prayer and true worship.4.
The thought of the Master, arrested, bound, scourged, and crucified, was too much for even the apostles. He might, indeed, have been a€?a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,a€? but he could hardly be the Messiah they had hoped would restore the kingdom of Israel. Again and again they see him and talk with him, and he takes them out on Olivet, where he bids them farewell and tells them he is going back to the Father. He has told them to tarry in Jerusalem until they are endowed with powera€”until the Spirit of Truth shall come.
And on the day of Pentecost this new teacher comes, and they go out at once to preach their gospel with new power. They are the bold and courageous followers of a living Lord, not a dead and defeated leader. They took their food with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. Being by the right hand of God, exalted, and having received from the Father the promise of the spirit, he has poured forth this which you see and hear.
They now proclaimed the facts of his life, death, and resurrection and preached the hope of his speedy return to this world to finish the work he began.
Thus the message of the early believers had to do with preaching about the facts of his first coming and with teaching the hope of his second coming, an event which they deemed to be very near at hand.
Jesus filled all their thoughts and determined all their new concept of God and everything else.
They were too much enthused over the new doctrine that a€?God is the Father of the Lord Jesusa€? to be concerned with the old message that a€?God is the loving Father of all men,a€? even of every single individual. True, a marvelous manifestation of brotherly love and unexampled good will did spring up in these early communities of believers. But it was a fellowship of believers in Jesus, not a fellowship of brothers in the family kingdom of the Father in heaven. Their good will arose from the love born of the concept of Jesusa€™ bestowal and not from the recognition of the brotherhood of mortal man.
Nevertheless, they were filled with joy, and they lived such new and unique lives that all men were attracted to their teachings about Jesus.
They made the great mistake of using the living and illustrative commentary on the gospel of the kingdom for that gospel, but even that represented the greatest religion mankind had ever known. They were not communal by decree but by the desire to share their goods with their fellow believers. They confidently expected that Jesus would return to complete the establishment of the Fathera€™s kingdom during their generation. This spontaneous sharing of earthly possessions was not a direct feature of Jesusa€™ teaching; it came about because these men and women so sincerely and so confidently believed that he was to return any day to finish his work and to consummate the kingdom.
But the final results of this well-meant experiment in thoughtless brotherly love were disastrous and sorrow-breeding.
Thousands of earnest believers sold their property and disposed of all their capital goods and other productive assets.
With the passing of time, the dwindling resources of Christian a€?equal-sharinga€? came to an enda€”but the world did not. Very soon the believers at Antioch were taking up a collection to keep their fellow believers at Jerusalem from starving. The Pharisees were little bothered about the situation, seeing that none of the teachings in any way interfered with the observance of the Jewish laws. Two of the pupils of Rodan arrived in Jerusalem and made many converts from among the Hellenists.
These able Greeks did not so much have the Jewish viewpoint, and they did not so well conform to the Jewish mode of worship and other ceremonial practices.
And it was the doings of these Greek believers that terminated the peaceful relations between the Jesus brotherhood and the Pharisees and Sadducees, Stephen and his Greek associate began to preach more as Jesus taught, and this brought them into immediate conflict with the Jewish rulers.
In one of Stephena€™s public sermons, when he reached the objectionable part of the discourse, they dispensed with all formalities of trial and proceeded to stone him to death on the spot. This new crisis was met by the recognition that believers could not longer go on as a sect within the Jewish faith.
They all agreed that they must separate themselves from unbelievers; and within one month from the death of Stephen the church at Jerusalem had been organized under the leadership of Peter and James the brother of Jesus had been installed as its titular head. In carrying this message, before the time of Paul the leadership was in Greek hands; and these first missionaries, as also the later ones, followed the path of Alexandera€™s march of former days, going by way of Gaza and Tyre to Antioch and then over Asia Minor to Macedonia, then on to Rome and to the uttermost parts of the empire.
