QUESTION NO 3: Inasmuch as the church on earth needs to widely share in
the Endowment; and since the general level of Spiritual
life inevitably affects even the strongest and the least of
Thy spiritual servants; and because in unity there is
strength--how may the church, too, advance in these ways?
Words can scarcely describe how immensely important it is that a generation of
deeply spiritual ministers and saints shall arise,
who by earnest and sacrificial effort have come up, as it were,
to the Mount of Transfiguration.
Men who know of God's special outreach in the past,
men who know and treasure all the promises of extraordinary
Spiritual outpouring ere the end shall come.
Furthermore, this generation of ministry
must not only know these things, but they
must particularly be
men of increasingly, demonstrated Spiritual power,
men whose Christly nobility and
very evident heavenly enrichment
mark them as very special instruments of divine
As these inspired ministers increasingly arise,
no matter whether they be men of high position or humble men who are
no matter whether they come from the shop, the office, or the farm,
they shall be fore-runners of an immense wave of vast spiritual
In that day when God works mightily with His ministers, and with his sons and
then can be brought to pass speedily all that the scriptures have foretold.
No weapon can withstand, no power can overthrow
when God thus moves
in majesty and
in mighty demonstration and
When this heavenly light, this bright radiance
shall move among you, saith the Lord, marvelous things can be done,
such as you have not had,
and do not now have power to do.
Under this light and Spiritual Radiance, the hearts of honest men will be opened to
truth, even as the eyes of Saul of Tarsus were opened in centuries past.
Can you not see, as Heaven-blessed prophetic-minded, deeply Spiritual men
increasingly stand out, that,
others' lives will be inspired and lit up, as it were by a great torch,
and so shall this power, this light, this radiance roll forth until
many shall be prepared for,
and shall be greatly endowed.
Hear ye, the time is at hand, seen by Joel of old,
when God shall pour out His Spirit upon all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
when your men servants and your maid-servants shall be touched by the
Lord's great power, and
when your old men and your mature men shall envision as they have not
because God is moving in marvelous ways among a people who have come
very close to Him.
Can you not see, then, that what is most needed now is such
a generation of men and women, boys and girls,
who see these things,
whose hearts are touched by the mighty appeal of what they see
an Almighty Father can do through them.
All other things will fall into place as this generation of Spiritual stalwarts
Oh My People, My covenant people,
the larger power,
the heavenly splendor,
the glowing radiance of your Great Father's spiritual outpouring
awaits upon your much fuller realization of these things.
The Eternal Father waits for you to embrace the most magnificent opportunities
ever offered to the sons and daughters of men!
Why, oh why, do you so often languish in the deserts of spiritual starvation
when by climbing the mountains you might
look over into, and
enter into the promised land?
Not withstanding the boundless power of your great Creator,
He will not, in the very nature of His personality, ever compel or force
you to choose the higher ways of the Spirit.
He will, however, wondrously reward all
who loving and
of their deepest selves
choose the lofty concerns and ways of the Holy Spirit.
Who then, among you, will offer
your life and
your all to the Lord of Hosts,
that under His blessing and guidance
you may become one of those radiant Spirits
whom the Lord can use to make known unto
His chosen and choosing people the glories of that time of
endowment which is so greatly needed, even now.
