Comments on Book of Judgement Chapter 2

1. GOD, embassador of Jehovih, saith: Ye shall assemble for the communion of angels, regularly, and maintain intercourse with them. For in no other way can ye demonstrate the immortality of the soul.

Faithists are encouraged to gather regularly for Angel Communion so as to continue communication with them. When the Oahspe Bible says “in no other way can ye demonstrate the immortality of the soul”, it means that without the higher knowledge received from Jehovih’s angelic beings, we have no way of reaching higher grades. We are in need of spiritual food (higher knowledge) from our Grand Creator in order to receive life in the next world.

2. Doing this in the name of Jehovih, and for spiritual light in regard to spiritual things.

Our Angel Communion is always in Jehovih’s Name. We ask for His blessing on our meetings together as brothers and sisters, families and as individuals. We come together to learn from the angels which He sends to us.

2b. for spiritual light in regard to spiritual things. 3. Whoso consulteth the spirits for earthly things, shall fall in darkness.

Our assembly together is, as the Oahspe Bible instructs, “for spiritual light”, specifically for “spiritual things”. However, “God, the embassador of Jehovih” warns us that our assemblies are never for the purpose of consulting spirits for material matters. This means that we would never consult the spirit world for such things as lottery numbers, advice on how to bring harm to others, astrology and so on. In doing so, we are in danger of walking in the darkness. It is likely that any spirit providing information for such matters is from a lower realm of existence — an angelic being that has yet to develop in higher grades.

4. But when ye assemble, let no man nor spirit be as a spectacle to others. But as all men labour in the field to gather the harvest, so shall all members in the assembly, by prayer or by music, contribute a glory unto the Father.

Our communion services are always conducted with respect and honour. We do not gather to make a show of individuals or of angelic beings. When gathering, our focus is on learning from Jehovih’s higher angelic beings from His spiritual kingdom to help in our own progress and in that of others. In doing so, each of us contributes our talents in various ways to “give glory unto the Father”.

5. Remembering that the humblest prayer, even with weak words, if given with a full heart, is as strong unto Jehovih as the best oratory. 6. From all men the spirit shall pour forth unto the Father in praise, according to what hath been created unto it. Neither is more required of any man.

Not everyone shares the same talents. Some have greater talents than others, but none should be judged on what he/she can or can not do. Jehovih knows the thoughts of His people. Whatever our talents may be, they should be given our fullest attention in pouring “forth unto the Father in praise”, according to our individual abilities. Our loving Creator does not require of us something that He did not create within us.

7. But this shall happen unto many: Learning to speak by entrancement or by inspiration, they will imagine themselves controlled by certain angels, when, in fact, it is only their own spirit, eliminated from the corporeal senses.

8. Others, being influenced, will imagine it is themselves and not an angel, whereas it is an angel speaking through them. This was the case of Ka’yu. Both are good, and shall be practised.

9. Let no man concern himself as to whether it be the spirit of himself or an angel; for it is only the subject uttered which is of value. In this day, all things shall stand on their own merit, and not on a supposed authority.

10. And let not him, who speaketh with his own spirit, judge others to be the same; nor yet the reverse of this; for no two in all the world are alike.

In verses seven through ten, we are told that some individuals might think that the spirit is speaking to or through them, when in fact it is the individual person’s own mind that is creating such thoughts. In other cases, as verse eight tells us, an individual may think it is he himself that is speaking, but it is instead an angelic being.

How do we discern between the two? How do we know if what is being spoken is from Jehovih’s spirit world? First, the Oahspe says that “both are good, and shall be practised”. We should not overly concern ourselves whether the utterance is from an angel or from the individual unless the words spoken are profane or entirely false. “It is only the subject uttered which is of value”. (v. 9) The same verse tells us that “all things shall stand on their own merit, and not on a supposed authority”. As individuals who have been able to cultivate a spirit of discernment, the spirit of Jehovih will help us know what is true and what should be discarded.

11. To them, that have not experienced elimination of the spirit-self from the corporeal self (trance), all speech is believed to be of the corporeal senses only, or of a diseased condition. Such men are not to be blamed for their interpretation; rather shall ye pity them, and not answer them.

This does not mean that anyone within the congregation should be permitted in continuing to speak falsehoods. Such utterances could be an indication of someone attempting to divide the congregation with false doctrines. These individuals might claim that the utterances are from angelic beings and that they have authority over the congregation. They may even chide those who do not believe them, attempting to take away with them a gathering of their own disciples. This is when we would definitely want to be concerned. Such an individual would be observed carefully so as not to bring harm to innocent brothers and sisters. At the same time, we pity the individuals, but we give no heed to their falsehoods. If a situation becomes out of control, it would be obvious that the individual must be removed from the congregation.

12. For many such, even after death, will not admit they are dead, because of the darkness upon them.

The twelfth verse indicates that the ideas held by these individuals are so deeply ingrained that even after they die, they will continue thinking they are alive in the flesh.

13. It is wiser for the spiritual-minded to keep to themselves, especially when communing with Jehovih and His angels. For a greater wonder than these will follow: Some will enter the trance of the first resurrection, and go in spirit out of the body, but only subjectively; others will enter the trance of the second resurrection, and go in spirit out of the body subjectively. And the first shall not believe but the second was like himself, going only subjectively. No two men in all the world have I created alike, saith Jehovih. Even many, after death, are not capable of entering the second resurrection objectively. He, that is in subjective state, speaketh and writeth from the earth, looking upward; he, that cometh of the objective heavens, speaketh and writeth as one come down from My kingdoms to the earth.

14. Two conditions will manifest: Subjective spiritualists will affiliate with the world’s people, being deniers of the Ever Present Person, and they will pursue earthly avocations for self sake; but objective spiritualists, being such as live for the spirit’s sake, will be Faithists, believers in the Ever Present Person, Jehovih, Whom they will worship not only in words, but by abjuring self, and uniting themselves in brotherhoods, for sake of doing good unto others. These latter are the chosen people of the Father of the kosmon era, and they will become supreme in all the world.

Verses thirteen and fourteen should remind every Faithist that spiritual discernment is important. We must be able to discern if the spirit speaking is of a higher grade and if it is even from Jehovih’s kingdom. It is for this reason that the Church of Jehovih does not practice an open service to those who are not Jehovih’s Faithists. In today’s world, the probability of a lower spirit attached to someone is very likely. Inviting the public to our Angel Communion services could be dangerous to the well-being of members.

Uzians — anyone who is not a believer, anyone who lives for the self and does not worship Jehovih — has no place in our services. We should pray for them on a regular basis. We can share the Creator’s promises and Joshu’s teachings with them so they can improve their lives and hopefully ascend to higher grades in the afterlife.

15. These three peoples, the world’s people, the believers and the Faithists, have been in all ages of the world. The latter only of them all practiceth harmony and good works. Both of the others are resistants, quarrelers and warriors and disintegrators and breakers-down of all things.

The Oahspe makes it clear that there is a major difference between the uzians, believers and Faithists. We are told that it is only Jehovih’s Faithists who have “harmony and good works”, while the others cause trouble for themselves and for others.

16. Yet, the Faithists, having faith in the All Person, shall ultimately possess the whole earth, and make it a paradise of peace and love.

It is Jehovih’s Faithists who will “possess the whole earth,” and be given the responsibility of helping expand Jehovih’s kingdom on earth with “peace and love”. This is because, first, as Faithists we belong to Jehovih and we think spiritually. We are not attached to the material things of the world. Neither are we involved with the mundane and worldly activities of the uzians. It is not the business of Jehovih’s people to get caught up in gossip, celebrity news, conspiracy theories, and events or activities that do not bring honour to Jehovih our Heavenly Father.

17. As the first is bound in the flesh, and as the second is bound by the hadan spirits, so is the Faithist bound unto Jehovih, which is emancipation. As the second can commune with the spirits of the first resurrection, so can the Faithist commune with the Father through the second resurrection.

As indicated in the seventeenth verse, Faithists are bound to Jehovih alone, which brings freedom from the fetters of the world. Others, however, are bound to material things and spirits of hadan. Those who are not Jehovih’s Faithists are unable to commune with higher ranking spirits of the Father. However, at the same time, having the ability to speak with higher spirits is not something of which we boast. Having such an ability is truly a gift from our loving Father Jehovih. We recognise that Jehovih sends His angels of different grades for the benefit of His people.

18. Nevertheless, this shall happen: The second shall say: My angels are high, thine are low! Or they shall ask: How know ye your light is higher than ours?

19. And the Faithists shall answer them, saying: We know no high, no low. We give up all things, in order to serve Jehovih by doing good works unto our fellows.

The works produced by those in communion with Jehovih’s spirit beings are always an indication of the ranking of the spirits. If we produce bad works, obviously the spirits were not of a higher ranking. We can see this in the world today with people who are materialistic, self-righteous and attached to evil spirits. Their works are an indication of the spirits with which they are attached. What type of entertainment and activities are uzians involved with? How do they react to certain situations in public? Do they lash out in anger at others even at the smallest of problems that might arise? Do worldly people actually care about the well-being of their fellow human beings? We witness this all the time with uzians. As Joshu said, Jehovih’s people will be recognised by the fruits which they bear. (Matthew 7:15-20)

20. And Jehovih shall judge betwixt them, as to which is high or low, not by their words, but by their works.

21. And the signs of good works and self-abnegation shall be as a witness before the world, whence cometh the inspiration of each.

Ultimately, it is our Creator who brings judgement between those who are His and those who are of the world. It is not always the words of individuals that are a witness against them, but their works (fruits) instead.

22. Let no man say, that only seers and prophets and such persons as work signs and miracles are under the influence of spirits; for even as much as these, so are other mortals under the dominion of spirits. Yea, the infidel, the disbeliever, the philosopher, the lawyer, the judge, the preacher, the fanatic, and all others, are more controlled by the spirits of the dead than by their own personal spirit. And the more a man’s spirit is wrapped up in his own corporeality, the more is he subject to vampires and spirits of darkness.

Jehovih has the ability to give the gift of revelation to any person: man, woman or child. It is not for us to decide who can and who can not hear revelation. However, we do know there are some individuals, even some among us, that do not fit the qualifications to claim true inspiration, as indicated in the above verses concerning works. If their fruits are sour, then it would be easy to see if it was Jehovih speaking to them through His angelic ambassadors. We have been told that there are some people in this particular time frame within the Kosmon Era that would not directly experience sar’gis or su’is. The world in which we live has become so distracted by its own self-interests that even some who claim belief in Jehovih find it difficult to experience these extraordinary gifts. In this particular era of humankind, Jehovih has certain individuals whom He speaks with on a regular basis through His divine messengers and other angelic beings. Again, this is proven by their works.

23. Neither knoweth the philosopher whether his ideas come from Jehovih or from the spirits of the dead.

24. Whosoever hath witnessed and knoweth of a truth, that he hath seen the spirits of the dead, that knowledge is impregnable. And whoso hath entered the second resurrection, even though in mortality, that knowledge is impregnable.

25. But, whoso hath found the All Person, his knowledge is greater than all. And none below him can judge him. Neither can any man attain to this knowledge, till he hath passed through the other two conditions.

Within our faith, there are two definitions for the phrase “spirits of the dead”. One is the spirit of someone who has passed beyond the physical realm of life to the next. Such a person has entered into one of the various realms of spirit life. The second definition is a spirit or angelic being that has never risen above the higher grades. Often times such spirits give false information to someone among the living or cause all sorts of mischief in the world. Many of these, as the Oahspe Bible already stated above, do not even know they have died. It is the latter which Jehovih’s people avoid to the best of their ability.

26. No man knoweth the Creator, unless he hath proven the communion of spirits. Neither can any man rise to the second resurrection, till he hath arisen to faith in the All One, Jehovih.

No one on earth can achieve perfection in the human body. Every Faithist knows of their responsibility to prepare themselves for the next world by practising the faith revealed by Jehovih and His angel ambassadors. Jehovih’s Faithists know of the importance of angelic communion, study, meditation and prayer in order to learn of the Father’s requirements on earth, so they may eventually find perfection in the life to come. No human can honestly claim to truly know all there is to know about the Creator, especially while in the human flesh. We can gain a great deal of knowledge of our Heavenly Father through proper Angel Communion and have the assured hope of the second resurrection.

27. Neither shall the Brahmin (Hindu), nor Mohammedan (Muslim), nor Buddhist, nor Kriste’yan (Christian) join in the second resurrection on earth or in heaven.

28. For they have not the doctrine of unit; they are as a house divided against itself. Their colonies and communities shall fail in all cases.

Again, the Oahspe Bible is clear as to who may and may not experience the second resurrection. Those who cling to false ideas and doctrines, especially teachings that are entirely against the revelation of Jehovih, are unable to detach themselves from such beliefs. Spiritual obstinance and clinging to false ideas is what will hold a person back from entering into the higher gates of Jehovih’s spirit kingdom. The religions of the world which do not know honour Jehovih are houses destined to fall, like castles in the sand.

29. There shall be but one doctrine, which is Jehovih, the All Person, who is Ever Present; with good works done unto others, with all of one’s wisdom and strength.

The Great Spirit Jehovih does not require uniformity (a practice of cults), but unity in doctrines and intentions. The Oahspe calls this “one doctrine, which is Jehovih”. It produces good works with the benefit of others in mind.

30. And this shall prevail with the young; whom, as orphans and castaways, ye shall gather up in infancy, founding them in the light of Jehovih, teaching them from the start to sing and pray unto Him, in reverence and fear and joy, that He may be glorified in their purity and good works.

It is this same “one doctrine” that is taught to our younger members within the Faith. It is imperative that young ones be taught the importance of honouring Jehovih and giving Him glory, and the importance of doing good works for others. Their various talents should be sought out and emphasised appropriately, but never forced. Likewise, it is important that they eventually understand that Jehovih sends His angelic beings to commune with them. As they grow in age, their minds will continue to develop and eventually be able to appreciate the meaning of true Angel Communion and its purpose.

31. And they shall grow up of all nationalities, and races, knowing not: This is mine, or that is mine, or that is thine, but understanding, that they own nothing, and that all things are Jehovih’s.

Jehovih’s Faithists practice equality. They do not qualify a person’s abilities or talents according to their nationality or race. When living in a physical community (what Faithists used to call a colony), they hold all things in common, which includes funds, food, housing, and the divine worth of every single individual in communion with one another and with Jehovih’s spirit world. Jehovih’s Faithists know that all things belong to their Creator.

May each of us strive to always give honour, glory and praise to the Eternal One, practise true Angel Communion with His spirit messengers, respect and be attentive to continuing divine revelation, and hold each other in common as family.
