The Sabbath message from the Teacher of Light was released today. The brethren received instructions to read the message on this coming Sabbath (21 January 2017) or the following Sunday.
On January 17, His Holiness the Teacher of Light conveyed the following to Mar David Shir, Mar Kharba Awraham and the Worldwide Organizational Committee.
1) He spoke of the importance of a General Synod or Conference being established in order to assist in guiding the Religion of Light as a whole (all Spiritual Communities). He stated that it needs to consist of individuals with knowledge of current events in the various Communities and who are “on the ground”, in other words not necessarily individuals in Terra Nova, Amarna or one of the other semi-celestial worlds. His Holiness said, “This is in preparation of things to come.”
This message from the Teacher of Light is to be read in all congregations and study groups on the Sabbath of 21 January 2017, or the following Sunday.
To all the brethren, peace be unto each of you.
It is my prayer that each of you had a blessed holy day experience within your particular covenant recently and that you have already begun to experience the blessing of the presence of God in your life with the beginning of the new year.
I wish to take this opportunity to share a brief, yet encouraging word that I sincerely pray will assist in adding to the spiritual strength that you already maintain.
The Third Messenger on Highest Morals (A Third Pillar Text)
The children of Light do not seek pleasure in the death of the evil, but are always in the habit of praying for their enemies.
The pure devotees of the Religion of Light seek the peaceful road if at all possible in all situations, and are not the originator of strife, unrest, warring or works of evil.
“As the sun is the joy of them who seek its daybreak, so is my joy the Lord; because He is my Sun, and His rays have lifted me up; and His light has dismissed all darkness from my face. — Odes of Solomon 14:1,2
As the author of this Ode says, with the joy we find in the daybreak, giving thanks to God for the rising of the sun, our joy is heightened even more in the One who brings forth the light of the day.
It is the Light of God that removes all falsehoods, and exposes evil works of those who do not serve the Father of Greatness.
