A divided mind is a battlefield between physical and spiritual desires. It rebels, for the highest desires of man are a handful of truths preserved from antiquity, from the time of his original glory. The one who is ruled by violence is consumed by the fire of hidden faults. These make him wicked, and he is torn away from God, by the Tester. This separation threatens his return to the heights of the spirit for he spends all his efforts in the petty struggles of this low and material world.
Denuded of all superficiality this handful of truths invigorates growth, both in spirituality and wisdom. An abundance of tumult and fear equally develops both edifices in primitive souls which are tempestuous and strong, but the Divine Law sees all and distributes holiness to the upright, whether lowly souls or the highest. The handful of Truths are thus concealed and the people are made to fear the only true cure. In the depths they are divided in mind, violent and cursed with sorrow. Concealed faults break forth, consuming high ideals through the fire of their tyranny in the darkness of hell.
On the Other Side, high ideals produce strength in those who dwell at the summit. Gathering together, they work towards the Highest, where high ideals rule. One who cherishes bloody possessions is wrapped in the darkness of hell. This is made plain by the handful of truths. Give thanks for the establishment of Righteousness! The high ideals of the Idealist enable him to triumph over hidden wiles. Working together with others to strengthen him, the Ideals of the Idealist enable him to help those in Hell. The idealist is in misery, for he is ready to burst forth from materialism and all the physical things which pertain to primitive man, as well as the emotions and conflicts that beset him.
He fears the demands of his higher consciousness, but if he intends to dwell on higher planes, materialism must be trodden underfoot. God sees the spirit enter the spiritual waters of life, which clean and consecrate it to His service. There, the chosen spirit dwells in purity and ponders the lofty ideals of his Heavenly Father. Through his meditations God elevate him to the heights of the spirit. Those who conceal their faith reduce its value. When hidden from God its Father, such faith clings only to human values. The man of faith approaches life on earth, already consecrated to God.
Thus he is enabled to complete his earthly incarnations. The Man of faith governs his own soul just as the wise counsellor guides a king and thus rules his earthly incarnations. When the soul complains, that action reduces its faith and leads many to mock the Man of Faith. In the desert of earth life, boastful speech and self-glorification troubles and distresses one who counsels the seeker after perfection in this portion of his existence. His counsellor explains completely a portion of the whole truth, which moves the Man of Faith to grow at the well of Perfection.
The man of faith hearkens to good advice and thus destroys most proud thoughts, for God stands for high things such as wisdom and spiritual vision. Like a consuming flame they flow forth from Him to those who dwell in God. The soul reaches the Heavenly City, but until it crosses the threshold it is bound to the man of faith by the common bond of earthly life. The man of faith is afraid. But he rejects the wide and easy path, choosing the narrow winding road of purity. His fear is eventually destroyed by his firmness and vigour.
Mockery binds the dweller in God by slaying good advice. But the man of faith achieves purity before the altar of God. But his soul is sometimes caught by the temptations of the Tester and brought to judgement. Despite the physical attractions that await him and the opposition of the world that oppresses him, by humility and because of his link with God he will ultimately return to his original state. He turns from worldly things, only after a long struggle but once initiated he is dedicated to seeking knowledge of God and constantly prays to Him.
God hearkens to the man of faith and inspires Him, so that there germinates within him a powerful desire for God. This is cultivated and developed until he becomes the servant of God. His life is pleasing to God who knows him and loves him in silence. In the land of silence, beyond the tomb, the burden of earth life is shed and the soul is uplifted by the light of God.
After learning lessons in that bright land, he passes through the Wall of Fire. Regularly as on many previous occasions he is again inspired to take the path of rebirth. Eventually, if he continually presses forward towards the Light he will ultimately return to God from whence he came. This is appointed of God to the one whom He calls. The One whom God Calls, He appoints to circle from birth to birth.
He turns at the Wall of Fire where he perceives Two Paths. Choosing the Narrow Path he goes forward to success. One with faith has happiness, because the beauties of heaven are his, as he dwells in God, mentally focussed on the white and shining glory of the Highest. Yet still his Lower Self, lies in wait for an opportunity to deceive his better nature. The Lower Self celebrates the fountain of life but dreads its fragrance, for his strength is broken in pieces and he is mocked and fettered by its beauty.
The Higher Self of the Son of Faith is raised to the heights of glory and dwells in God, but the pride of his Lower Self lies in wait to ensnare him. The Lower Self of the Son of Faith lies in wait in the plains of material existence, whilst the Higher Self is elevated which humiliates the Lower Self of the son of faith. The Higher Self is raised up and his glorious soul laughs.
Healed of the desire for material things, he shines in higher realms of which he bears fruitful testimony. Strife wearies the Higher Self and deceives the human soul lest it rise up with zeal to dwell in God. The Higher Self is deceived if it follows material things and joins itself to them instead of staying apart from them. The spiritual man has vision. Because he hears and obeys The Lord he is joined to Him in praise. Such praise brings its own reward to those who abide in his dwelling.
The Lord shall increase his happiness, for his right judgment, will make him a defender in the battles of God. His lot leads him straight to happiness. The spiritual man though weary has a vision because he is able to listen to God and is attached to spiritual things. He worships God and this brings rewards to his own soul and also to those who follow him. These will increase in numbers, because of his goodness and compassion. He judges aright as he struggles to work for God and so extracts the best from the bitterness of life by following the path that leads straight to the spiritual heights.
Such a spiritual man will have happiness and find strength in the company of many other happy men of faith. The Lower Self, which is the physical man in material existence, pursues only pleasure. But, though they be strong as an oak, its links with the physical world are shattered by the call of its heavenly home. Even a sinner, by a lifetime of effort, can make spiritual progress and God sees the fruits of his labours. God is a refiner of gold, a friend to the one gaining experience on the upward path who strives to rid himself of his faults until he is perfect.
The physical self is refined by God in order to help him become a friend of God full of fragrance. God dispenses goodness to the physical self, which brings it forth to the heights. There it can look down upon the aridities of its past life, whilst for a time the Tester is restrained by the glory of God. The physical man is refined by God and cleansed of the passions that consume him.

Thus the physical man advances. He causes the Divine Spark within to grow and progress on the Way of Perfection. Physical man can speedily reach perfection by gaining ascendancy over his passions through penitence. The Lower Self is refined by the God of Gold till it has the good fortune to reach the summit, where it can look down upon the hunter Tester who imposes penance on earth and the warlike dwellers in this earthly vale. He is astonished, filled with awe and terror, but his fears melt away. The Lower Self, though still rough and sinful; assembles itself and hastens to ascend; ridding itself of its sins to become perfect.
Thus Heaven testifies about the sinful Lower Self. This is the Lower Self of Physical Man. The primitive human soul is immersed in the flowing stream of life, learning much and gathering a harvest of many treasures. Primitive souls are rough, sinful and concerned mainly with the physical. The primitive soul must first learn to hide or control his emotions, then hide and finally restrain his inclinations to anything wrong.
Wandering from life to life, it gradually ascends, till it reaches the highest state, where stripped of its sins, it ceases from vain striving and wickedness. To reach the time of harvest, a man must become wise and good. Then he can leave the earth with a joyful and triumphant shout. To achieve this he must store up good karma by helping those less advanced than himself and turning them from their crooked way.
So shall the time of harvest be full of joy for both the one who helps others and for those he has helped. The light is veiled from Primitive souls who wander far from the Divine life-force. But to make ready for the time of harvest they must be immersed in it. To store up good karma they must trample their primitive sinful nature under their feet. The Lower Self is judged by God.
The Lower Self is swallowed up and the brutish nature is judged in Hell and consumed.
Sin is swallowed up by penitence, and that which remains is nourished in the spirit planes. But speeding away alone after passions and power is contending against the life-force of the Father. This leads to ruin on the crooked path. Fierceness and worldly might assume the shape of the soul and cover it like a garment, keeping it away from Heaven and the Divine Life-force. This outer garment of pride leads to a desire for dominion over others.
But the Lord of Grace hears even the cry of a mouse. In His Majesty he responds even to the scream of anguish from Hell.
He seeks after those who repent granting them the water of life and goodness and thus producing children of God. The physical man cannot control himself and as a result he pursues evil, till it becomes his abode. He becomes fixed in evil as strongly as an oak tree is fixed in the ground. But he is unsatisfied, for he has been distracted from his true purpose, which is the pursuit of righteousness.
Righteousness is the service of God and it is His precious gift to mankind. The physical man either watches this offer of service pass him by or he gathers it in and makes use of it. In material existence, the spirituality of man develops gradually. His tears of penitence draw forth his spiritual essence and The Source of Life increases it. He makes contact with God, who judges his increasing worth and progressively develops it. The Source of Life shall strengthen the one who has made contact with God.
As his friendship with God increases he crosses into the spirit realms and there begins to follow the Two Laws of God. At first his efforts are feeble, like tender sprouts but gradually develop until through these Twin Laws his mystical need for God is at last satisfied. The Man of vision has seen that the Source of Life will increase him and develop him progressively, for God hears him. For a time his life flows between the effects of past karma and the rewards of the life in which God has placed him. This conflict develops and progressively increases.
It is appointed of God to develop because of these twin effects. Thus it is with the son who develops! The Source of Life shall increase him and develop him progressively. If the Spiritual Man is deceived by such discord and trouble he will not break forth and begin to rule himself. The man who praises God rests in the long hidden, noble splendour of that praise.
The one who values material possessions is in anguish because of his riches. He wastes his strength guarding them but cannot achieve peace, for he is deceived. The man who praises God is also watchful, but he is upright, like a palm tree, awake to praise God. The worship of the Strong is in vain, but the worship of the Upright brings peace. The Upright man is free to cry our praises to God. A splendid portion is assigned to him if he remains Upright. His assigned portion in both this life and the next is measured out and he worships in peace.
The man who praises God finds his rest in that worship. He celebrates his Uprightness by praising God and worships in Peace, then bursts forth to spread the word. At the beginning God shall increase that which is hidden and make it ready but it will not break forth without much effort and increase only with difficulty. Spiritual Growth that is kept a prisoner remains fruitless. It breaks forth only through effort and then Increases progressively.
Forgetting the past it brings forth fruit from affliction — the twin fruits of the Twin Laws of God. Fighting against God brings only misery. It deceives the vision of the spiritual man. The man of spiritual vision has passed through an agony of soul. This has set him apart from others and dedicated him to the service of God. Thus he is surrounded by the effects of his own good deeds. A man who hearkens to the God of Light and obeys Him will find the right way and prosper.
He becomes one with God, which in turn makes him steadfast, like a bright and shining temple pillar in the thirsty land that is desired but sought in vain by the one who seeks material things. One who seeks union with God dedicates his life to His Service.
He becomes a stranger to his fellow mortals, for they drive him from their midst, because his preaching makes them feel guilty and they resent him. One who praises God, worships Him. He knows that he is weak, and that alone he can do nothing. He asks for Peace, and this breaks forth within him, as the Light of God illuminates him. Till now he has watched helplessly whilst spending his strength in a vain pursuit of material things. When the Light breaks forth it increases rapidly, surrounding him with compassion, like the wall of a tower.
God rewards the one who successfully bears the burden of life on earth. But a careless word may set him back on the Path, and cause him to come back for another incarnation. So watch your words and thus preserve your right to the promised reward. He becomes strong as an oak because he trusts in God and waits on Him.

The seer has a fortunate lot in life. He looks out on the future as from a high tower, waiting for events to come to pass as he has foreseen. He is relaxed and serene in this knowledge and spends his time gathering good karma. He is always alert to opportunities and will rouse himself to give refuge to those who are in trouble, helping them without fear for himself because of his knowledge. The Upright Man is happy if he takes the right hand path to heaven. For it must be made plain that the Eternal has changed the unfortunate son of evil into His own likeness.
So much spiritual power pours forth on the unfortunate son of evil, that he learns the higher truth; that God is King. The spiritual man extracts the glorious and shining essence from the tears that weary, delay and deceive him in this transient earth life, where the soul of the spiritual man increasingly develops a strong Heaven-centredness. As a result of trials, one grows spiritually, for one learns from the conflicts and storms of life.
Serving God in His Church causes one to forget them and become more fruitful. Blessed is the man whose spiritual good fortune fills his youth. When still young he produces many good works, whose fruits trail behind him. He delights in brotherly love, which is like the first touch of goodness that sifts his sins from his virtues.
It covers and protects him through all his earthly journeys. Each one receives from God his allotted part in the struggle of earthly life. His place in Heaven is preserved for him as Peace slowly develops within him. Thus the tender-hearted soul of the spiritual man travels through this world to become gloriously pure. The Source of Life shall increase the man who finds God and in the land of the spirit he shall increase and continue to increase progressively till he rules his physical existence and begins to rule over the Twin Laws in the Spirit Realm.
The strength of the Man of Faith is broken in pieces on the winding road as is vigour in physical existence. The strength of the Man of Faith is broken but his soul rejects the snares of earth. Weary and crushed, they are supplanted by the Higher Self. The Source of Life shall increase the power of one who triumphs over the Twin Laws, for he shall grow in the Spirit Realms. One who subdues his earthly faults is still held within the Twin Laws. He suffers sorrow and stress till he subdues his earthly desires on the winding road.
The man of faith vigorously breaks in pieces the dust of earth and shall increase progressively within the limits of the Twin Laws. One who increasingly follows the Twin Laws shall increase progressively. The Source of Life shall increase him as he pays the price and brings forth fruit from affliction. Neglecting to increase and increase progressively makes a mockery of the man of faith, for the Higher Self must increase till it finds God.
Initially we urge the reader to study these Sayings of Melchizedek as they are given above. Taken as a whole they provide a comprehensive insight into the journey of the human spirit throughout its many earthly incarnations, whilst individually they contain much that can assist us mortals on that journey, even today. It is not intended that this collection of the "Sayings of Melchizedek" should be considered to be complete, for undoubtedly there are many other messages that can be extracted from the names in Genesis.
Nevertheless, I venture to suggest that those will provide few "new" insights, but merely variations on one or more of the themes given here. Neither is the collection provided with commentary, for this is provided elsewhere. It has been given here simply as a collection of "Logia", or "Sayings" just as were the words of Jesus Christ in the years that immediately followed his Ascension.
Perhaps these "Sayings of Melchizedek" were also collected and written down in this way, soon after He returned to Heaven years earlier. Perhaps at that time they were merely an oral record and remained as such till Moses wrote the Book of Genesis long afterwards. This is something that we may never know. For Further information Contact: Introduction to the Sayings of Melchizedek We are likewise uncertain as to whether the original record of the teachings of Melchizedek was oral or written, but it was certainly in a similar format to the Logia of Jesus and it is that format which we have endeavoured to reproduce in this chapter.
Sayings Reference 1 Love of Possessions causes us to wander away from the presence of God in search of pleasure. Genesis 4; 16 - 23 2 The appointed path for fallen man is this: Genesis 5; 1 - 30 3 Possessions give way in importance to ideals and they are used not abused.
Genesis 9; 18 — Genesis 10; 1 - 4 5 The physical body is in darkness when it is bound to the world and stifled by worldly desires. Genesis 10; 6 6 Physical desires cause suffering and trouble because they bind the spirit to earth life. Such troubles keep the spirit imprisoned by its low desires Genesis 10; 7 7 Walking in darkness, the spirit entered the sleep of descent where confusion expands. Genesis 10; 8 - 10 8 To be freed from that confusion, one must, grow spiritually. Thus his exterior growth is completed Genesis 10; 11 - 12 9 Those who are not free undergo tribulations from birth.
Genesis 10; 15 - 16 11 The preoccupation with material things even affects him after death. Genesis 10; 17 12 Falling into Hell, such a man abuses others. Genesis 10; 18 13 The materialist seeks only his earthly needs, but is eventually brought to a halt. Bob and Jimmy Wells have an agreement to meet after twenty years on a particular spot near a restaurant.
While Bob is waiting, a policeman arrives and they begin to talk as Bob boasts of how well he has fared meanwhile. Later, "Jimmy Wells" arrives and as they walk into a lighted area, Bob discovers that this is not the real Jimmy he knew. Henry's surprise endings to stories, the story ends with the revelation that the policeman who met Bob earlier was Jimmy Wells, but lacking heart to arrest his own friend who he recognizes to be a noted criminal, he sent another policeman in plain clothes to arrest him.
