"The Daily Lesson"
"THE DAILY LESSON", an ongoing open
class by Infinite Way Teacher Al Denninger, is inspired
by the message of Joel S. Goldsmith. In this Book Study we delve into Joel's
books paragraph by paragraph, from cover to cover. I provide Scripture
supporting his entire Work and an Impartation from my daily Experience. These
classes appear on my website and by email
subscription each day, for my students to take into their daily meditations
and to carry with them throughout their day.
We are currently studying the book
"A PARENTHESIS IN ETERNITY" By Joel S
On May 17th, 2019, we began Chapter 11
"THE NATURE OF SPIRITUAL POWER"
STUDENTS NOTE: In my teaching, the words that
are capitalized throughout the work are not capitalized for emphasis. Instead,
the purpose is to Lift the student into the Awareness that these words are a
Synonym for, or an Activity of God.
The portions that are italicized are spontaneous

"The spiritual path demands complete purity, and by purity
is meant an absolute conviction that God is the only power there is: there are
no other powers. Omnipotence, which means All-power, is spiritual; and if
Omnipotence is spiritual, then neither material nor mental powers can be power.
To perceive that is to prevent not only the individual, the group, or the
universal belief from functioning in our experience, but also to begin to
destroy it for the whole world." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Matt 5:8 (KJV)
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Matthew 5:16 (KJV)
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
As Spirit fills our Heart it builds trust and conviction until
eventually it overflows and becomes a Transparency for those who are beginning
on their Spiritual Journey. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - May 24, 2019
"If there is a person left in this enlightened age who is
still engaging in malpractice - trying to destroy the life which is God, or
trying to prove that there is a power other than God-power - it is an object
lesson to watch what happens to him when his malpractice hits up against a
person who has perceived the truth that God is individual life. If we believe
that there is an evil power from which our understanding of God will protect us
or if we believe that we have an 'in' with God that will save us from some
evil, we are lost: we have accepted two powers, and according to our belief so
is it unto us." ~Joel S Goldsmith
II Corinthians 4:6,7
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of
God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Proverbs 19:5 (KJV)
5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh
lies shall not escape.
Bearing false witness is accepting a sense of separation from
God. Living in that state of understanding we are subject to the consequences
of that lie. ~Al Denninger

"That is why wrong mental practice, mental malpractice,
whether it is done individually, collectively, or by universal belief, has no
power whatsoever except on the malpractioner himself. The malpractitioner
accepts two powers, and he is, therefore, a victim of his own belief. Harm can
come to us if we agree with him that there are two powers, and seek refuge
behind a wall or in a statement of truth; but if we know that we are life
eternal and that nothing can destroy the immortality of life or create a power
destructive to the life of God, we are no longer the victims of the belief in
two powers. The malpractioner believes in two powers, but as he sends out his
belief in two powers, it touches our understanding of one power, and all it can
do is to boomerang because those who accept the belief in two powers go down
under their belief." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind [Christ Consciousness], that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
While mental work may work temporarily in this world; mental
work is an activity in this-world and has nothing to do with Spirit. Metal work
is about correcting an error in this-world, thus working in the realm of two
powers. ~Al Denninger

"Once we accept the principle that because God never made
a deadly weapon, no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper, then the
bomb will explode in the midst of the very person holding it in his hand. He is
the person with the belief in two powers, and he must reap the results of his
belief." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Genesis 1:1,31 (KJV)
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it
was very good.
II Corinthians 10:5,7 (KJV)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth
itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought
to the obedience of Christ;
7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man
trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again,
that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.
Proverbs 23:7 (to :) (KJV)
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
We live in this-world in direct proportion to our plugging into
it. ~Al Denninger

"When this becomes realized consciousness, we can face the
bomb, the bullet, the lion, or the weather: 'I have lived in fear of you, but
the truth is that you exist merely as a belief in two powers. The only
existence you have is in the mind of man, and you cannot get outside of that
mind to do anything to anybody. All you can do is to destroy those who
entertain that same belief in two powers.' These powers that appear to be
destructive are so only to the individual who insists that there is a 'this,' a
'that,' or an 'it'; but it is he himself who has formed the weapon, and all
that weapon is, is a belief entertained in his own mind." ~Joel S
16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast
him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God
whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
17 And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den;
and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords;
that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night
fasting: neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep
went from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in
haste unto the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable
voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of
the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee
from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths,
that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me;
and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that
they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the
den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
II Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind.
I Corinthians 2:5 (KJV)
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in
the power of God.
Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the
power of his might.
Did Daniel have a belief in two powers? ~Al Denninger

"With practice and meditation, we shall come to see that
it is literally true that there is no weapon that has power because there is
only one power, and that is the immortal life and the divine truth which we
already are. There is no life for us to attain; there is no truth for us to
attain: there is only the recognition of the truth that we are the truth, that
we are life eternal, and the realization that the infinite nature of God makes
it impossible for any deadly weapon to exist." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Ephesians 5:8 (KJV)
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the
Lord: walk as children of light:
Psalm 23:4 (KJV)
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort
Psalm 23:1 (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
The Lord already Is your Shepherd - rest back now and See that
for what it Is.
Walk with Me in confident assurance of His Light, Truth and
Love. ~Al Denninger

The Daily Lesson - May 19, 2019
"If we look out at this life through our mind, we are
subject to every manner of deadly weapon: germs, bullets, bombs, and so many
other things we need not rehearse them. Even an automobile on the road can be a
very deadly weapon, and, above all, the calendar is so deadly that all we have
to do is to keep looking at it for threescore years and ten, and then any day
we are due for extinction. But the deadliest weapon of all is the mind of man
that believes in two powers, and therefore accepts a mind of its own in which
evil is a power. Neither bullet-proof vests nor bomb-proof shelters can save us
from that weapon. Only in the understanding that we are life eternal, that God
is our life, that we are immortal and spiritual, and that in the entire kingdom
of God there are no deadly weapons - physical, mental, or otherwise - can we
find safety and security." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Matt 6:24,25 (to 2nd ,) (KJV)
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the
one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,
II Cor 1:12 (to 5th ,) (KJV)
12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience,
that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the
grace of God,
John 17:1,2 (that), 3 (KJV)
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven,
and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may
that he should give eternal life to as many as thou
hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only
true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
Our Life is an individual Expression of God's Omnipresence.
Try not to be tempted or distracted away from that fact. ~Al

"To the world, there are great powers and little powers,
but he who is anchored in spiritual consciousness knows that no weapon that is
formed against him shall prosper. If we accepted that literally, we would
believe that there is a deadly weapon that could prosper except that God in
some way is going to save us from it. To the uninitiated that passage would
indicate, 'I have an enemy who has a deadly atomic bomb, and I know what it can
do to me, but fortunately God says that no weapon that is formed against me
shall prosper, and therefore I am now immune, and this deadly weapon can no
longer harm me.'
But the weapon does do harm when it is let loose in the world.
And this is because people do not understand the real meaning of no weapon
having power over them. The truth is that no deadly weapon has power because
Life is God; and God has never made anything to destroy His own immortality and
eternality. God is our life: we eternal and immortal." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Isaiah 54:17 (to ;) (KJV)
17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper;
No weapon formed against Thee - Capital T, the Life of God in
You, the Real You, the Complete You, the Included You - shall prosper. ~Al
Ps 91:1 (KJV)
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Then we must Dwell, not coast
Psalms 91:9-11 (KJV)
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the
most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague
come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee
in all thy ways
We are Included in the Omnipotence of God's Kingdom. ~Al

THE NATURE OF SPIRITUAL POWER
"The development of spiritual consciousness is possible
when we learn that there is only one power. If we can rise in spiritual vision
to the apprehension of the one truth that God is, that God is infinite and
omnipotent, and therefore nothing else or nobody else is power, that is enough.
This is spiritual discernment." ~Joel S Goldsmith
Matthew 19:26 (but) (KJV)
but with God all things are possible.
Ephesians 4:6 (KJV)
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all,
and in you all.
Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding.
Father, i Trust you beyond words and thoughts to a place
where i know that i of mine own self can do nothing. I surrender all to You and
Let You be my Strength to Live and Move and Be Your Servant. ~al.within
