…the one automatic faculty with which the creation is endowed, as well as being the most elementary and utterly simple is the faculty of reception….the Creator-creature relationship is in the nature of things of one kind only, that of giving and receiving. The Creator gives all by giving Himself, the creature receives all; and the […]

The heart of the stabilizing revelation to me and what has become the total answer to all life for me has been that there is only One Person in the universe, and that the whole universe is His myriad forms of Self-manifestation. Of course I am immediately dubbed a pantheist and am often asked if […]

Saints Faithful Blessed with all spiritual blessings Chosen Holy Blameless Predestined Adopted as sons Accepted in the Beloved Redeemed Forgiven Lavished with His grace To the praise of His glory Saved Sealed Redeemed Given faith and love We have . . .

John 17:22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: When God made man, the Bible says that God crowned him with glory and honour.[1] The word crowned here means to encompass or to surround like a glorious circle. The glory of […]
