Freedom
by Walter Lanyon

When Jesus came showing this NEW way, which was past finding out, but which was the heritage of every man who would actually Recognize the Presence, the old human reasoning again said; "This cannot be." How can poverty be turned into riches? Who can answer that question, "Canst thou by searching find out God?" and, "Who hath known the mind of the Lord?" It is wonderful that we are recognizing this, and letting go of the old mental ideas that we could assist God, or make Him do something, of that we had the power to make God operative. The old idea, so firmly fixed in the minds of many, is actually a belief that God is only working when they are "knowing the Truth," and that at all other times He apparently is absent and inactive.

As you are reading, the Voice within is saying, "Fear not, it is I---Fear ye not, be not afraid, "I am with you alway." It is so glorious. I am here NOW, and I will show you a way out that ye knew not of, and that no person knew anything about. "I am the Way"--do you hear? It is glorious, this Recognition of the Presence. BE still; I have much to say to you in the secret place. I have much Revelation to make to you when you are ready, and when you cease going without, and trying to solve the mysteries of evil. They shall all vanish away at the coming of the Lord. Blessings! Blessings! Blessings! "Every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement, thou shalt condemn." Every obstacle which impedes the outflowing of Truth shall be moved away.

The immunity with which the Presence wraps you about is not that of 'overcoming' it simply brings you to the dimension where the things that were formerly true are no more so. A man may desire protection and immunity from accidents so ardently that he permits himself to be locked in a cell. He has gained his object, certainly, but he has lost his freedom in so doing. So with man, who insists on getting his immunity from evil from the outside. The immunity which comes through the recognition of the Presence enables you to walk through what the human mind calls evil, without experiencing any of the effects. Hence the Hebrew children in the fiery furnace--the same furnace which, to human belief even destroyed the man who built the fire. It is wonderful! We do not have to run away from evil"--the Presence will take care of all of that. When you begin the process of Recognizing God in everything, then the appearances of evil will diminish, until they fade entirely out of the picture.
