Amen.
ARTICLE 4 of your Creed of Faith is as follows: "I believe in the Prophets, Messengers of God, Leaders of High Creeds". You can say, to explain this: I accept, that God, the Creator of the Universe, has sent spirits to the earth, which prophesied and brought proclamations — that He arranged for certain spirits, to be reincarnated on earth, to give revelations to the human beings — and other reincarnated spirits, which He has sent — ever and anon — to act as Leaders of High Creeds, and who brought together a certain number of people, to emphasize and to confirm the Principle of the One God. Many people on earth accept Article 4 of this Creed of Faith. They daily read in their prayer books this Article of Faith as a mark of submission to the Laws of God, which were pro- claimed through Prophets and Messengers of God and through Leaders of High Creeds. — These people do not trouble much, to look for the deeper meaning of these Articles of Faith. They do not analyze these words, they are just believers with a nodding acquaintance of their belief and no knowledge of its very foundations. They belong — without that deeper knowledge of the principles, on which their belief is founded — to the rank of those, who lack the deeper understanding of their conviction. If such a believer is not able to find the underlying spiritual principles of his belief — then his faith is slack and without real conviction. Such a belief is unsatisfactory, it does not show the essential profundity and can never lead to wisdom. It is therefore not possible for such a one, to rise to the Higher Spheres in the Spirit world, because only through wisdom are the human spirits permitted, to receive the Light of God. We came to you in the past — are present here now and will also in future go on coming to you — to bring you revelations, which will enable you, to maintain wisdom. Those, who are not much evolved, are not yet able to understand us — but the higher evolved ones are well able to follow and understand our revelations. They accept our Creed of Faith and also try to penetrate to the deeper meaning of their creed. You, who are now here, listening to these words, are doing the same. ft is my duty and my mission - - being the Spirit of Truth, the coming of which was announced by the Spirit of the Christ in Jesus — to give you elucidation about this Creed of Faith, which you accept and which you will now understand even better and will therefore adjust your life accordingly. You will find the Christspirit in Prophets of ancient times and you find this same Spirit in modern Prophets. You may say. that the Christspirit was born in the body of Jesus, but not before this time and not after His incarnation in the body of Jesus, and therefore could not give messages to human beings — neither before nor after this time. We understand that there are still churches, which are primitive enough to cling to this theorem, hut therewith render proof, that they have as yet not been able to rise above the old times of their origin and have not been able either to search for future truths. But the Spirit of the Christ Himself has — and so have the Spirits, which are Splits of the Christspirit — done more reincarnations in human bodies than you can imagine. From Moses and later still, and in Allan Kardec, He has come back to earth innumerable times and reincarnated and always — as a Prophet, a Philosopher, a Messenger of God or a Leader of a High Creed — brought new revelations and revealed new ways, to prove the Laws of God. He reincarnated for the Jewish people as Moses and as Jesus, to preach morale and to reveal new truths. He went to India as Gautama Buddha, to make the Indian people realise that suffering is a necessity on earth for their evolution, for cleansing from vices and shortcomings and that, for this reason, they have to he repeatedly reborn. He reincarnated as Socrates and as Mohamed, to help the Greek and Arabian peoples, to overcome polytheism and to realise and accept (lie One God. He reincarnated as Allan Kardec, resp. Dr. H. L. Rivail — to explain the Gospels in their original Light and Beauty and to proclaim the Spiritualistic Philosophy. He — as Clovis, king of the Heathen Franks — got baptized after a victorious battle and accepted the Christian Faith and achieved thus, that King Clevis, all his soldiers and many other people accepted the belief in the One God. It is of no importance, to dwell on the question, whether these reincarnations were of the Spirit of Christ Himself or of one of His Splits. Whatever is done by one of these Splits, is done by the Christspirit Himself and — as the Christspirit is a part of God — all is always ordained by the God-Head. You find the Christspirit in manifold reincarnations: in prophets of the Old and the New Testament, in Spirits, which come to us as Messengers with new revelations from God, in some philosophers — never has the Christspirit left His followers in difficulties. We can therefore rightly say: "He is the Path, if you search for Life Eternal, follow in His track". To pray with the words: "I believe in the prophets. Messengers of God, Leaders of High Creeds", is the same as to pray with the words: "I believe in the Spirit of the Christ". Somebody who prays, these words deep in his subconscious mind, and remembers the numerous reincarnations of the Christ- spirit — among the Jews, the Syrian peoples, the Chinese, the Indians, the Athenians, the Arabians, etc. — and who remembers also with deep devotion the manifold times. He has given His Human Life for the welfare of the human spirits on earth and in the cosmos — this human being will feel, that his prayer is accepted in the Heavens and will be moved and overwhelmed with a wonderful feeling of bliss, because at this moment the radiation from the Christspirit — as a part of Him — descends and wraps the devotee in a protecting mist and brings him enlightenment and a cheering and uplifting realization of his fatigued and troubled self. This is again a proof, that there is little help to expect, when muttering a prayer from a book. A prayer — to rise up to Heaven — must be felt deep in your heart. The deeper meaning must be translated into invisible spiritual images, and he, who prays, must be conscious of this deeper meaning of each word and believe it, so that great power will radiate from his prayer. Many fable-stories are told about the lives of these Prophets, but the truth remains — that the Christspirit — in many of His reincarnations on earth, to serve mankind — has met with a violent death. Just to know this fact and to remember it, whenever one prays with conviction, suffices to render this prayer more powerful and helps it to ascend to the Highest Heavenly Spheres. When this Creed of Faith: "I believe in the Prophets. Messengers of God, Leaders of High Creeds", is sent to Heaven as a prayer by someone who believes in the "True Faith", it is coupled with the radiation of images from the lives of these Prophets, Messengers of God, Leaders of High Creeds. In one life he might be: tramped down by the hooves of horses — in another: tortured on the rack — or: torn to pieces and devoured in the arena by wild beasts — or: to drink the cup of hemlock-poison — or: to be tortured and crucified — but all these sacrifices result in the overcoming — the conquest... From these conquests is born the philosophy of the "True Faith", which allows love, kindness and compassion to radiate from those, who not only accept this belief, but also live it. This solemn promise is the sanctioning of the word: mysticism, which does not belong to any official church, but only to the True Faith".

Amen.
ARTICLE 5 of your Creed of Faith reads as follows: "I believe in the Hierarchy of the Spirits and in their Evolution". A great revelation is entrenched in this Creed of Faith. This is the acceptance that a hierarchy exists for the spirits. But the word hierarchy is on earth looked upon with human eyes and used in its worldly, humanly, material and physical meaning. What is the meaning of this word: Hierarchy?... Hierarchy means on earth: to rise from the bottom to the top: In a factory it means graduation, distinction between worker and foreman, foreman and work leader, work leader and director... in the office it is the distinction between messenger boy and clerk, clerk and vice-principal, and between vice-principal and bead-principal etc. Hierarchy is prevalent on earth in industry, in factories, in politics, in companies and in society. Hierarchy in the family is from great-grandchild to grandchild, to child, to parents, to grandparents. There is the hierarchy of the man in the street to nobility. There is the hierarchy in the army from soldier to officer to general. But it always means a material distinction, which human beings attach to it. The hierarchy of the spirits is, however, spiritual and has nothing to do with physical designation — but yet — the spirits are graded in a rising sense, in the way of purification — perfection — evolution. What is the meaning of purification — perfection and evolution?... Purification for human beings means: to keep the body clean and dress modestly. Perfection means study, pass examinations, get diplomas and a good social position. Evolution (on earth) means: to get away from a low standard in life and rise to a higher rank — from a simple worker to become professional, to earn more money, get rich and live in comfort. But this living in comfort on earth is only for the duration of life on earth. Purification, perfection and evolution as human beings on earth contributes nothing to the advancement of the spirit, it often actually hinders the spirit to rise to a higher sphere in the spirit world. There are however, reincarnated spirits, who — during their life on earth as human beings — purify, perfect and evolve. What then does it mean: to purify as spirit, to perfect and to evolve? This is nothing human, earthly or material — this is simply spiritual; to purify means: to clean the aura of dark spots. The aura is the radiation of the human being. Shortcomings and evil — which the human spirit still harbours — stain the aura with spots and he, who overcomes these evils and shortcomings and repents, clears the aura of these spots. That is purification. The hierarchy of the spirits means: to better oneself spiritually and to overcome evil and shortcomings — and try again and again to become a better being, by performing good deeds and acquiring more virtues. This means: discarding spite — envy — jealousy — hate — vindictiveness etc. and develop more love — goodness — compassion for fellow-beings. This causes the human spirit — reincarnated as well as discarnated — to form a ladder of rising, purifying and evolving spirits, which build a hierarchy — from low spirits to purifying and then to purified spirits. There are terms and titles on earth for people, who belong to a particular class and who can be promoted to higher and higher positions, but in the cosmos there are no such terms and titles, there is only the light, which radiates from the spirit, to indicate the rung of its place in the hierarchy. One spirit has a darkish-black radiation — the other one a lighter colour, but still full of dark spots — and another shows a light radiation without any spots. They have no means to indicate their place, there are no rules as to how lower spirits are to address higher ones. Each spirit has its freedom, to let his conscience decide, how to behave towards higher spirits, just as his rung of purification, perfection and evolution inspires it. They reach their ascension and evolution — thanks to the way which they have chosen to live during their incarnation. The more primitive the spirits, the lower their lives as human beings. The more reincarnations they have passed, the more opportunities they had to gain experiences and to learn to understand their fellow-beings — their good and evil — their virtues and shortcomings. These experiences teach the human spirit, to learn to know itself — in all its evil and its good — and therewith the spirit is encouraged to leave off its evildoings — to shed shortcomings and to become a better human being, to cultivate love, loving-kindness and compassion and to help those, who are a rung lower on the ladder of evolution, to shed their evil and shortcomings also and choose the right road to reach perfection. Looked at in this way, there is a hierarchy among spirits, which can to a certain extent be compared to what is called rank or position on earth. On earth however, reincarnated spirits, which belong to the privileged class of nobility — very often become haughty or proud and look down in a humiliating and degrading way on people, who belong to a lower or poorer class. This is different in the cosmos. A spirit — even if perfected and evolved — never forgets that it too once belonged to a lower sphere, when it had dark spots in its radiation; there forfeit is humble — and spirits of lower planes will never feel humiliated, though they still harbor envy and jealousy and are not always able to distinguish between good and evil. It is possible on earth — under certain circumstances and conditions — to buy a high rank; in some countries it is quite possible to buy even aristocratic titles and then be received in aristocratic circles. The rising of a spirit in spirit land is not dependant on its rank on earth. The spirit has worked for its evolution and must have made many sacrifices. The greatest sacrifice, that a human being is able to bring, is: to accept suffering, mental and bodily sacrifice — to balance all its evil and its shortcomings. Many are the crossroads on earth: the road of vice and evil crosses the road of virtue — the path of grief and affliction the path of pleasure — the path of hate the path of love — the path of vengeance the path of forgiveness — the path of egoism crosses the path of helpfulness and charity... and it happens ever so often, that the physical human being desires to walk the one path and the human spirit chooses another. The physical human being and his indwelling spirit live during many reincarnations in a mutual fight with one another; during numerous reincarnations the spirit is the weakling and has to permit itself to be influenced by human instincts, notwithstanding the danger of plunging into the bottomless abyss. Later, the spirit grows stronger and does not yield so often to the egoistic temptations of the self-centered human being. And yet later, the spirit is the stronger one — stronger than the human being, in whom it is reincarnated, and refuses the human instincts and whims and starts to fulfil its own spiritual plans. This new way of directing its life. enables the spirit, to climb the hierarchic ladder of evolution and to approach the Light of God, maybe even to enter this Light. If you accept that reincarnated spirits are on different rungs of the spiritual ladder of purification, perfection and evolution, you accept simultaneously the hierarchy of the spirits in the spirit world. This hierarchy is not — as on earth — a disparity between servant and master — people and aristocracy — soldier and general — but it is the difference in the spirits purification, which decides the grade. This does not result in different castes, where the lower one has to obey the higher one, but in that the highest evolved spirits Live in the highest spheres, close to the Eternal Light, and the least evolved spirits live in the lowest spheres, farthest removed from the Eternal Light. Instead of being haughty about the high evolution, the Highest Spirits are the humblest, most modest ones — and always descend to less evolved ones to help them and to show them the path to be followed, so as to rise in the Hierarchy of the Spirit world.

Amen.
ARTICLE 6 of your Creed of Faith is as follows: "I believe in the Atom of God, which — by the Lord and by the agency of the Spirit of Christ — is planted in us and which gives us the ability to rise to the Highest Rung of Spiritual Perfection". The human being is actually exceedingly overloaded with ideologies, theoretical and philosophical principles and all these doctrines are usually built up in the brain of certain people and accordingly have in most cases a worldly purport and worldly foundation. One need not search for a deeper meaning, because the human being favors his material wellbeing and comfort. And when of necessity the human being is influenced by a spiritual concern, he does not understand the hidden contents. He accepts certain spiritual principles, because they are presented to him by certain people, of whom is expected that they know this subject better than the average being. But neither the lecturer nor the hearer go to the bottom of the theories and try to explain them accurately. And what is strange in Article 6 of your Creed of Faith?... "Atom of God", "Spirit of Christ" and "Highest Rung of Spiritual Perfection?" are yet words, which are accepted, because they are known. But with the interpretation, "I believe in the Atom of God" the seeker of wisdom begins to meditate on this expression. We have already previously given an explanation about the "Atom of God"... These Atoms of God were scattered all over the earth during her Creation. They gave life to the minerals below the surface. Nothing at that time was mentioned about plants, animals or human beings. Millions of years had to pass before their appearance. But the abovementioned revelation mentions: "I believe in the Atom of God, which is planted in us through the agency of the Christspirit". This brings a discordance to the brain of the human being and he asks himself the question: "Is this Atom of God planted into the human spirits, and this time by the Spirit of the Christ?" Let us explain this further: The God-Spirit overshadowed His Creation and whosesoever He went. He scattered His Atoms. These Atoms gave life to the minerals to grow and to change their form. The Spirit of the Christ came much later, to reincarnate on earth, among the different races and nations, and has always — through the proclamation of the Word of God and His Revelations — planted Atoms of God in the reincarnated human beings. He destroyed idolatry and replaced it by the One God Creed — God, the Creator of the Universe, the God of Love, Goodness and Compassion. The Christspirit has — in His various reincarnations as Leader of High Creeds — in each of His Doctrines for different races and nations — proclaimed a part of the Laws of God — which teachings penetrated the minds of the reincarnated human spirits as, "Atoms of God". The Spirit of Christ or of one of His Splits — whilst reincarnated in the body of Jesus — said: "where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am in their midst". If this be true for the Christspirit, it must also be true for the God-Head — because the Christspirit is a part of God — and when the words of the Christspirit penetrate into the human spirit as Atoms of God, then they are truly "Atoms of God", because the Christspirit is born of God. These words — when looked upon spiritually, thus immaterially, are of great influence to reincarnated human spirits and also to the human beings. The human being uses slogans, which are inciting and which impress their influence on their fellow-men. The human being is susceptible to the radiation of slogans and aphorisms. A friendly word to a person helps to recuperation — a word of encouragement gives people mettle to start a certain task and the strength to finish it. Little words of love keep people together — little sacrifices for each other brings immediate unison. Tolerance, patience and respect for one another's ideology bring love and peace among people. From a worldly point of view these words hold a material meaning. If somebody wants to get material gain from his neighbor, he feels in no way ashamed to stimulate friendship, nor to discourage a sick or an unfortunate person by an unwanted word. He will do all possible, to reach his material profit, to extort and to squeeze another out. From a spiritual point of view, he would revolt against such behavior and restrain his thoughts and his actions. But he does not see things from a spiritual point of view, because he does not even know that he is a spirit. He thinks, feels, sees and acts as a human being — a physical and material entity — for whom there exist only worldly concerns and material advantages. Neither God nor the Christspirit can co-operate with such a person, they do not even consider such a possibility. They are just plainly materialistic, without the knowledge that they harbor a spirit. They live only for material concerns, ignorant of the fact that a spirit world exists, wherein they have to live after their physical death. Article 6 of Creed of Faith adds: "which gives us the possibility to rise to the Highest Rung of Spiritual Perfection". The last part of this Article of Faith must also be explained. because incomplete explanations give rise to more questions, for which perhaps there is no answer. Then the human being is still left in darkness and has no satisfaction. It is always the aim of human beings, to elucidate the darkness, in which they live. But how are they able to let the Light penetrate this darkness?... There is only one way, which leads to enlightenment — and it is the Way of Wisdom. Is it then so difficult to become a sage?... What is a Sage? ... A sage is He, who has collected much knowledge about human beings and suffered many experiences. But a spirit has to live through many reincarnations — it is a long way to reach that state of Wisdom. The road may be shortened by studying and accepting the Laws of God ... out of which hails spiritual philosophy.  Spiritual philosophy means initiation into the life of spirits, from which results knowledge, science and belief — and from these result mysticism. With this you have the explanation of the above mentioned expression: "which makes it possible, to rise to the Highest Rung of Spiritual Perfection". A person can reach perfection as a human being on earth, but also a spirit can reach that state. Perfection as human being means: to reach a job, to reach then a higher social standing or extensive comprehension. It means always; to serve the material concerns on earth and the physical body, born on earth. But there is also a spiritual perfection possible, on which a reincarnated spirit can work. We grant that the spirit has to experience many reincarnation, to accept this, to believe and to understand, that it has to be reincarnated on earth, to work — cognizant or ignorant of the fact — as to obtain its spiritual purification and perfection. However — the human spirit always grows better and better. He learns to know depravity and evil and their dismal consequences. He learns to fathom honesty and virtue and experiences their propitious consequences. The more good and virtues he practices, the more evil and shortcomings is he able to discard and ultimately he conquers evil and vices. All this leads up to the result, that he develops more love, kindness, charity for his fellow-beings. He feels compassion for those, who try to offend him and in the end he becomes a mystic, without troubling about the laws of organized churches, but has only inclination towards the Laws of God. He feels elevated and his wisdom is the light which now illuminates his path. He realises the darkness, in which he lived, but also that now a brighter Light burns in him, which enlightens and dissolves much, that was still dark. All this is spiritual perfection, and everyone who harbours the Atom of God in him, is susceptible to it. The path leads through many reincarnations, but those who arc of good will, are able to shorten the path by living a model life as a human being.

Amen.
ARTICLE 7 of your Creed of Faith is as follows: "T believe in the rebirth of the spirits, which through many centuries of evolution and reincarnation on earth and on other planets, gained the legitimacy to enter Eternal Bliss". The seeker for wisdom and truth will — after reading this Article 7 — be perplexed and his curiosity stimulated, when he reads the following expressions: "rebirth or reincarnation" — "century long evolution and reincarnation on earth or on other planets" — "to enter Eternal Bliss". 1) It induces the human being to contemplation and meditation. 2) We have previously stressed, that there is a difference between contemplation and meditation. Contemplation is when a person reflects in his brain and argues about the solution of some problem. You may get a suggestion or an inspiration, but this is obtained through your human brain and by intellectual consideration. Meditation — on the other hand — is a spiritual condition. You do not need the help of your human intellect, because you know, that by intellectual consideration you very often make mistakes or get entrapped. You have to be in a semi trance for meditation — you exclude all worldly thoughts from your brain and you concentrate your thought, your spiritual ray. on the cosmos — or your leader spirit — the Christspirit — the Holy Spirit — or even on the God Head Self — or on one or other loved spirit, which you know and with which you are connected by family-bonds or friendship. You form a spiritual picture of the object or subject, which makes you ask — and when this feeling is strong enough, you release it with the conviction, that it rises upwards— and stop thinking, but remain in the trance-state — and after some time an answer will come through intuition. And you will think — quite amazed — why could T not have thought of this before?... The human being — in this state of meditation — considers his affairs not with his human brain, but with his spirit, or even with the help or counsel from the spirit world. However — let us return to Article 7 of your Creed of Faith. There are namely the expressions, "rebirth of the spirit" — "Centuries of evolution and of reincarnation on earth or on other planets" — and "Eternal Bliss" — which have to be clarified. It is not satisfactory, to learn these texts by heart and to repeat them, until they are engraved in you yet be unable to accept their deeper meaning. Many people on earth are victims of slogans and propaganda- phrases, which are repeated over and over, and are accepted, because the brain cannot exclude them. The effect is very often not valuable for the human being, who has permitted himself to be influenced by these texts, because he is unable to fathom them. And ever so often such slogans and propaganda-phrases serve only political or commercial reasons, which again are controvert to the human needs. We therefore search for the deeper meaning of your Creed of Faith in order to be sure, that you are convinced, that you have received , the True Faith, according to your spiritual rung of evolution. "To be reborn" is explained by organized churches, as meaning: change of comprehension or to improve the character or even a spiritual metamorphosis. But the Christspirit said — through Jesus — "You must often be reborn, before you will enter the Kingdom of My Father". Should this mean, that you change your comprehension?... you have become a better human being, before you shall reach Eternal Life and Eternal Bliss?... or does it mean: You live only once as a human being and have — during this one life — to return to God, to respect and revere Him . . . and you will enter the Life Eternal?... The truth is: God is good. He lets each human spirit be reborn in a human body many, many times, so that it is able to learn to differentiate between good and evil, to gain experience, learn to know people's inner self and thus to acquire wisdom; to learn to know itself as a human being and as spirit, to learn to discard its evil and its shortcomings, to undergo its process of evolution until perfection is reached — and then to be worthy to enter the Kingdom of Eternity. It is a deception to maintain that, everyone, good or bad, shall reach — after only one lifetime on earth — the House of the Father and receive Eternal Bliss. That would lead to rebellion and insurrection in the spirit world, because the spirits would not be able to understand one another — and it would give rise to discontent and jealousy. Therefore there are many spheres in the invisible spirit world and on each sphere live spirits with the same degree of purification, perfection and evolution. That means, that on each such sphere is a better understanding and mutual good feeling than on earth, where spirits of different degrees of evolution are born. They are reborn in new human bodies, until they are sufficiently evolved and perfected, to enter the Light of God and enjoy Eternal Life. This is the explanation of the expression: "Centuries of evolution and of reincarnation or rebirths". There is no other explanation and to this expression is added: "on earth and on other planets". It would be just too simple, to suppose, that in the infinite cosmos with its innumerable solar-systems, only one single planet should exist, on which spirits could be born in human bodies. Science maintains, that on the other planets, which rotate round the sun, life would be impossible for human beings — but they forget to realise that — as the Creator — He created human beings, who are adjusted to the atmospheric pressure of the earth — and on other planets He created spirits, born in different physical bodies, which are adjusted to the climate and the atmospheric pressure of these planets. This is the explanation of the expression: "on earth and on other planets". And now there is still the expression: "to enter Eternal Bliss". But people on earth try only too often, to find a connection between the physical body and the Kingdom of Heaven — the Cosmos or Spirit land. The human being easily forgets, that the physical body belongs to the earth and is inseparable from it, but that the spirit, which is born in this physical body, belongs to the cosmos, the spirit-kingdom and is inseparable from this sphere, even if it be born in a human body, either on earth or on any other planet. The human being asks himself: How can I possibly rise — after my death — to this spirit world? ... my body lies beneath the ground and decomposes?... They do not consider, that they are spirits, and they are not able — either to understand with their human brain, that there are creeds, which preach, that Jesus-Christ and His Mother have risen from earth to Heaven in flesh and blood — whereas actually their bodies have decomposed in their graves, and that it was their spirits, which rose to Heaven. The spirit leaves the corpse after the death of the human being. The spirit is lighter than physical matter and is an invisible. living entity, which returns to its original home, the cosmos — to live in that sphere of the spirit world, to which its purification and perfection are adjusted. May these explanations help you to the deeper understanding of Article 7 of your Creed of Faith and may it bring you to an always deeper conviction of Truth.
