In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
In Him was Life; and the Life was the Light of men.
And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not....
...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us..." - John 1:1-14
This booklet is only a sample of the wealth of information which can be discovered as a result of the Lord's Second Coming. It explains how the Second Coming occured and why it is not what we expected. It shows, by means of various quotes, that the Writings are indeed the Internal Sense of the Word of God. This disclosure can open our eyes to see the Lord more fully *in* His Word: "...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us..."
The Lord will be with us always in His Word, and by allowing us to know of the spiritual world and to understand the Genuine Truths which make up the Doctrines of Heaven, we can continue to grow closer and to prepare more fully for our journey into eternity.
For reasons of our freedom, the Lord will not appear as most people expect. In order for us to return a pure love to our Creator, we must be in freedom. Love compeled is not actual love, but slavery. Therefore we have been placed in a world where there can be no scientific evidence of the existence of God. We must learn to love the Lord willingly. The Second Coming has given us the tools to accomplish this more directly than ever before.
Rediscover your life in the light of Heavenly Wisdom. We can now learn how the spiritual world operates, how the process of salvation occurs and why it takes so long for the world to see Truth:
"...the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not...
"That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.
He came unto His own, and His own received Him not."
This is not a 'calling' to join any organization, but an opportunity to see those
things promised by our Lord: "I have yet many things to say to you..."
In the future, all religions will know the Genuine Truths of our Creator and Lord, and we will finally become friends in love and peace.
