Tree of Life – Level 1, Lesson 6: Feast 1
All those who would enter the kingdom of God have been universally invited to a great Feast. The universal call has gone out to all, whosoever will may come. We are working toward this goal, for all of us are here to prepare for this great Feast.
We will be using 3 basic Bible stories, the book of Matthew, chapter 22:2; the book of Luke, chapter 14:16; and the book of Revelations chapter 19, verses 7-9.
In Matthew we read of a rich man who prepared a great wedding feast for his son. He sent forth his servants to tell the guests to come, for everything was prepared. The wedding guests made light of this and treated his servants disrespectfully, abusing them greatly. In the New Age, we are entering in, we find a great desire for revelation and truth. Yet when the preachers of the Word go into the world as the servants of God, they are abused and mistreated.
This is angering our heavenly Father, the King of this Universe.
It is a privilege for all the sons and daughters of God and for the world in general, to be invited to the great wedding feast. Yet how many are heeding the call? But the judgment recorded in the 22nd Chapter of Matthew is promised to this world if they do not heed the call to the great wedding feast.
Jesus tells us that the king sent his armies and destroyed those unworthy, whom Jesus called murderers, and burned their cities.
The king pronounced the wedding guests unworthy and went seeking those in the highways and byways. And he gathered both the good and the bad, and allowed them to participate in the great event.
The past generation, the old Age, is likened to those who mistreated the servants of God. The Judgment of Fire will destroy the old Creation, and those abiding under the old order will be destroyed by the Fire of God’s Judgment. And those pronounced unholy and unrighteous by the old Age, shall find themselves seated at the Master’s table.
For we are living in the day when the Word of God is being physically manifested. There will be no more allegories, no more stories, and a definite end to fiction. All will be reality. Even in the New Age, there are going to be found those who will try to enter without the wedding garment. And as in the Bible story of old, they will be cast out, and there will be weeping and wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
The modern day wedding garment for the New Age is nothing more than the glorious light of Christ, the physical manifestation of energy and force in both spiritual and physical action; without this, regardless of the age we are living in, we are doomed.
This light of Christ comes to us through epigenesis, or as it is commonly called, the grace of God.
The New Age is an age of physically spiritual enlightenment, and one must abide in this Light, for in the true God Creation, all is light, and in It there is no darkness at all.
In the story found in Luke, we are told that after the expulsion of the old guests and the entrance of the new guests there was still room at the table, and the master bid his servants to go out, and find some more guests. In Luke, he also pronounces the old guests truly unworthy.
In the New Age, millions upon millions will enter through the light of Christ. It will be surprising to many whom they will find sitting at the master’s table
In order to find this light of Christ, and be accepted at this great wedding feast, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Him, as stated in Luke 14:27.
In the 19th chapter of Revelations, verses 7-9, the story is repeated.
This time it is called the Marriage of the Lamb. This is a New Age wedding. We are told in this School that in the New Age, the Lamb of God is the Mind. This is a joining of the Mind to the Spirit, and the physical, so that they may perform one function, the glorification of God in unison.
This marriage feast of the Lamb must take place in every believer’s being before it can be taken in a universal literal sense.
Revelation 19: 7, says, Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and his wife has made herself ready. The Spirit has made itself ready, for the proper function of use, in this New Age, and all have been invited to participate. But only those with the light of Christ will be accepted.
In the 8th and 9th verses of Revelation 19 we find an excellent description of the light of Christ and its functions. We find out through this scriptural verse that this light of Christ is the righteousness of the Saints.
In verse 9, it is stated: “and he said unto me, right blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, these are the true sayings of God.”
John, the revelator, is hereby testifying to the verity of the truth of the marriage feast of the Lamb. In Matthew 25:10, the following story is recorded. The bridegroom came, and that the door was shut, and afterward came the five foolish virgins saying, “Lord, Lord, open unto us.” And the answer came, “Verily I say unto you, I know you not.”
Matthew cautions us by saying, “Watch therefore, for you know not, neither the day nor the hour, wherein the Son of God is coming.”
The Son of God is the center of the marriage, the master of the Feast. He through the great light of Christ has created the possibility of our participation in this great turn of events.
The Lamb of God must be wedded to the Spirit. After the wedding takes place through the light of Christ, and the force and energy of the Father, the mind of man and the mind of the Father become one, as they were in the beginning.
Duality ceases to exist at this point for man arises out of the state of physical concept – his mind becomes spiritually perfect, and assumes his responsibility as the Son of God. After this has taken place, in all of God’s Creation of true Sons the world will come completely under the dominion of the New Order. And God’s plan will have come to pass.
At this great feast, there will be no spot nor blemish, no defilement nor any such thing. The day of the Lord will be accomplished. All will eventually turn toward him. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that he is Christ. Those who have been faithful over a few things will be rulers over much.
Since we are living in a day of active reality, we cannot waste time nor suppose anything. Things actually are or they are not. Our God is a living vital force, causing all things to be in existence. His feast is a feast of action and reality – a vital feast and one that all mankind must attend.
