The Light of Messiah I Am the Light; Jesus
Excerpt from The Light of Messiah "I Am the Light;" Jesus: On the Gospel of Freedom and the Order of Messiah This book is an introduction to seven volumes, which will follow as they can conveniently be prepared for the press. These outlines of the Messianic philosophy take up the thread on the ground of the religious ethics, where it was left, and will continue to wind it as a guidance through the labyrinth of social, philosophical and religious ideas, in problems from above and now before this generation. The harmonial philosophy brought spiritual thoughts to earth, and spiritual development, but in the spirit of God's love came light, and the human soul is lifted in that light into the philosophy of love to search the earth and heavens with. The divine dealings with the race are links of a chain which unite mankind with eternity by a gradual evolution of ideas drifting onwards. These become the analytical problems of to-day, which are dissected and absorbed by souls, and assimilate into the spiritual life. Throughout the succeeding volumes will the light of Messiah be gradually increasing in splendor, and throw its rays into every avenue of the human soul. There will be light, and darkness will shine in God's love with the lustre of the eternal world, because there is no redemption except in love, and in the truth which is derived from love. It depends on the reception of this introductory volume how quickly in succession the others will appear, but the Ancient of Days will keep his word, and what the blue messenger of love cannot accomplish, will be done by the yellow messenger of wisdom, who shall follow after him with a superior power. Nothing has been accomplished in the service of the cross except through suffering, and nothing will be accomplished in the service of the Messiah except by suffering, as it was through suffering he entered his Father's glory. Harmony is the radiating influence from truth, but there is no truth except from God's love, and in the intensity of our affections which proceed from that love in our love to each other. Truth is shining with the brilliancy of all colors, each corresponding to its own harmony of love. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
