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
By Joel S Goldsmith

On January 29th, 2021, we began Chapter 26
"My Kingdom is not of This World"

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 meditations.

At the conclusion of each chapter the Lessons are posted to the IWSO Archives, where there are over 11 years of consecutive Lessons for your further review and study!


The Daily Lesson - February 26, 2021

"As we are able to understand the nature of the temporal universe, the forms of this world will begin to disappear: forms of sickness, sin, false appetites, and lack and limitation. All these will drop away, and in their place will be harmonious conditions and relationships, and these will be the showing forth of our higher state of consciousness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I John 4:1-6 (KJV)
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Galations 6:7 for (KJV)
7 …for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Ephesians 5:14 Awake (KJV)
14 … Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Our this-world experience is determined by the level of our own consciousness. Our Spiritual Experience is determined in proportion to our surrender of our own consciousness and Realizing our Inclusion in God Consciousness. This Realization does not produce harmony in this-world, it Acknowledges the Omnipresence of God in Spiritual Being and Recognizes Its Harmony. ~Al Denninger

"All that exists as a temporal universe is without power. I need not hate it, fear it, or condemn it I need only understand it." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Proverbs 4:7 (KJV)
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

I Kings 3:5-11 (KJV)
5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
7 And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

There is only One Wisdom, One Source of Understanding. Be still and be receptive. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 24, 2021

"My kingdom is intact; My kingdom is the kingdom of God; My kingdom is the kingdom of the children of God; and My kingdom is here and now." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:10 (to .) (KJV)
10 Thy kingdom come.

Within the Gift of The Lord's Prayer from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is not asking God's Kingdom to come to help us in some way. He is recognizing and declaring that God's Kingdom is Always Present, Perfect, Infinite and within us all right now, It always was and we will always will be Included. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 23, 2021

"My kingdom is the reality. This, that my eyes see or my ears hear, this is the superimposed counterfeit, not existing as a world, but as a concept, a concept of temporal power." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Genesis 3:8-11 (to ?) (KJ)
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked?

Matthew 6:31 & 33 (to;) (KJV)
31 Therefore take no thought [concepts], saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Adam slipped into the world-of-concepts and thought the countefeit-world was the real one. The concept of being ashamed is not possible in the Righteousness and Reality of God's Garden. Who told you that you were of this-world? ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 22, 2021

"Let us be grateful that from the moment we have set foot upon the spiritual path and begun to practice living this way, in some measure, we are attaining that 'mind . . . which was also in Christ Jesus,' and in that measure, however small, we are demonstrating outwardly the fruitage of it. The point is not that we expect to attain Christhood in a single bound, but that with every day of this kind of prayer and meditation, we are attaining some measure of that Christ-mind. As we look out at the temporal universe, let us realize: This world is not to be feared or hated or loved: this is the illusion, and right where the illusion is, is the kingdom of God, My kingdom. ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 18:36 (to :) (KJV)
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Psalms 62:5-8 (KJV)
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. [reflect on this]

There are no opposing viewpoints in The Kingdom, only One, and it is worth Waiting on. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 21, 2021

"If we are unable to do this one hundred per cent, or if occasionally we fail, we must not be disheartened. It is hardly possible for anyone to change overnight from a material state of consciousness to a spiritual state of consciousness, or to become wholly and completely spiritual after only a year or two of study and meditation." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Deuteronomy 1:21 (KJV)
21 Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.

Isaiah 26:3 (to :) (KJV)
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:

Isaiah 30:15 (to :) (KJV)
15 For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:

John 6:43-45 (to.) (KJV)
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God.

Matthew 7:7,8 (KJV)
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

I looked all over the Bible tonight for stories of Prophets, Sages etc. stumbling… It seems they all did at some point, and some more than once - even Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane when he couldn't settle down and was distraught and sorrowful. The point here is to never give up the seeking, and the knocking, no matter how long it takes... In returning and rest, and steady focus, shall ye be taught of God. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 20, 2021

"Knowing this truth will make us free, but while we are knowing it our thoughts and action must conform to the truth we are knowing. We cannot be denying the power of effect and the next minute indulge in it, or to put it more bluntly, we cannot deny the power of effect and then hate somebody or fear somebody because he is a part of that effect." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 8:31,32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:3-11 (KJV)
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus Knew the Truth about all that were present - the scribes & the Pharisees that were trying to tempt him, the accused woman, and the entire crowd. He did not see anything anywhere in that entire scene that God didn't See. Knowing the Truth of their Infinite Being, he was so completely unaffected by their entire distraction, that he simply stooped down and wrote with his finger on the ground until the whole noise was dissolved. Jesus' advice to the woman was to never entertain a sense of separation from God, ever again. I am sure she didn't. By holding onto the Truth, no matter what, there is nothing else to see. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 19, 2021

"As long as we are praying for a God-power to overcome evil, we are resisting evil, but when we are anchored in the truth, we relax in the realization that this thing that is facing us is a mirage, not a power, and that we need not fear what mortal man can do to us, or what he can think or be. All fear of mortal power is dissolved-temporal power, material power, the laws of infection, contagion, calendars, or age-because we know that nothing in the realm of effect is power. All power is invisible, and that which is appearing to us as power is a mental image in thought, a picture, a mistaken concept of power." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 5:39 (to :) (KJV)
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil:

Romans 8:31 & 35 (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

I Samuel 17:45 (to 4th ,)
45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts,

Romans 8:35 (KJV)
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Psalms 46:5-7 & 10 (to :) (KJV)
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
10 Be still, and know that I am God:

Be not moved by things that distract you from the Omnipotence of God…. If they're not of God, they're not of anything. Trust God, and Be His Love, according to His purpose. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 18, 2021

"The spiritual life is not the overcoming of evil but the recognition of the nature of evil: evil is not ordained of God; evil has no law of God to sustain it; evil has no God-existence, God-purpose, God-life, God-substance, or God-law: it is temporal, the 'arm of flesh,' or nothingness." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Psalms 139:7-10 (KJV)
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Matthew 4:8-10 (KJV)
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Matthew 28:20 and (KJV)
20 …and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Is there room for anything else if God is ever-present? ~Al Denninger

John 2:18,19 (KJV)
18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

Even in the appearance of death… There is Omnipresent Life. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 17, 2021

"And as we sit beside a person who is ill, and realize, 'I will not give power to this disease, this sin, or this false appetite. This is temporal power which means it is no power, and I will not believe in it,' we shall find him getting better, and then we will know that we have proved, if only in a small way, that temporal power is not a power in any form." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:5 (KJV)
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

John 3:30,31 (KJV)
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

Romans 8:38,39 (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:11 (KJV)
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Focusing on the things of the flesh leaves God out of the picture. For where your focus is there will your heart, and your demonstration, be also. Let the Awareness be in you that was also in Christ Jesus. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 16, 2021

"As soon as we recognize evil as temporal power, we can inwardly smile and realize that this means no power because that which is not of God is not power. God has given us dominion over all that exists, and therefore, this that appears as effect is temporal. All power is invisible. This danger that is so very visible and apparent cannot be power and cannot be of God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Daniel 3:14,15 & 23-25 (KJV)
14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellers, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Can a temporal Nebuchadnezzar, Caesar, or king order you to accept him, his power or his god? Only God can Show you His Spirit, His Power, and His Son. Temporal mind thinks it has a power of its own self and it will repeat its distracting demands until we stop plugging in to it. Be still now and Let God Show you His Infinite Way… ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 15, 2021

"The whole teaching of the Master was the revelation of the non-power of that which appeared as power. To the blind man, he said, 'Open thine eyes': he knew that there was no power to keep them closed. To the man with the withered hand, he was able to say, 'Stretch forth thine hand': he knew that there was no power to stay the hand. Jesus' entire ministry was a revelation that what is called 'this world,' while it exists and he was given the mission to dissolve it, does not exist as power; it exists only as an appearance. That realization enables us to sit back in quietness and in confidence and realize:

God alone is power. This, that has been troubling me and that I have been battling, is an appearance that I am retaining in my thought as a mental image: it is not really a thing. I cannot win a battle over nothing, but I can relax in quietness and in confidence, and realize that this picture with which I am confronted is nothing but a picture-not a person or a condition, even though it may appear as person or condition." ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 19:10, 11 (to :) (KJV)
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:

John 14:10 (KJV)
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Romans 12:2 (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

James 1:17 (KJV)
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Isaiah 30:15 (to :) (KJV)
15 For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:

Jesus said, he of his own self could do nothing. God is Omnipotent, which means there is no other Power. Jesus proved this throughout his ministry, culminating with the fact that while the appearance was that he was killed in this-world, they couldn't and didn't kill him. The Father doeth the Good and Perfect Works. ~Al Denninger

Daily Lesson - February 14, 2021

"When we realize that the Christ-kingdom is not of this world, and yet that that Kingdom is the only power in the world, then, when we are presented with an evil appearance, no matter who or what it may be, we stop and ask ourselves, 'Is this spiritual power? Is this evil power of God? Can there be an evil power coming from God? Is not any such claim of power, therefore, only temporal power?'" ~Joel S Goldsmith

John 18:36 (to :) (KJV)
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:

II Corinthians 4:18 (KJV)
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Luke 24:1-5 (KJV)
1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

Christ is eternal. Christ never dies. To temporal sense Jesus died, and lived. Spirit is not visible in this-world. Why do we look for Life among the dead? Temporal sense can weave a fabric that looks like real life, but the appearance of life is but a dream. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 13, 2021

"The struggle physically and mentally, and finally the attempt to use God to overcome the evils of this world, must fail because they are not power and do not need to be overcome. It is only our acceptance of the universal belief that evil is power that causes us to linger in evil conditions. The instant we accept God as Omnipotence, our problems begin to fade away." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:5-7 (KJV)
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

II Corinthians 9:8 (KJV)
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Matthew 6:13 (KJV)
13 …For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The carnal mind can instigate opposition against God.
Accept God as Omnipotence and it will be proven unto you. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 12, 2021

"The human world is filled with temporal powers: disease, money, politics, war, and preparations for war. To persist in the age-old prayer of 'God, overcome our enemies,' or 'God, overcome those atomic bombs' is to waste precious time and energy because such prayers have never succeeded and never will succeed." ~Joel S Goldsmith

I Corinthians 3:18,19 (KJV)
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

I Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

John 15:6,7 (KJV)
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

It doesn't matter what the opposing view of God is, it's just a viewpoint that will be taken in its own craftiness. Why go back to boxing with the shadows again… Why? There is no opposite of God. What is the point of reacting? ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 11, 2021

"As has been pointed out before, one of the cardinal principles of spiritual living is that, to the transcendental consciousness, temporal power is not power whether it is of a physical or a mental nature. Only the grace of God is power, only the realized consciousness or oneness, of one power and of the non-power of all else other than God. Prayers have failed because they have largely been an attempt to overcome a temporal power which in reality is not a power. Such prayer is like trying to overcome the mirage on the desert or like trying to overcome two times two is five. How can we use a power over a non-existence?" ~Joel S Goldsmith

1 John 2:5 (to :) (KJV)
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:

James 4:3 (to 3rd ,) (KJV)
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss,

John 19:10,11 (to :) (KJV)
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:

You can't have God and something else, or a lack of something else either.
You can't have Omnipotence and have some other power too.
Don't be tempted to believe anything other than God.
Get thee behind me "thoughts". ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 10, 2021

"What is fulfillment? What does 'in thy presence is fullness of joy' mean? How does that fullness express and interpret itself? What is the fullness of God? When we seek the understanding of that spiritual wisdom, all things will be added unto us, and they will appear in due course without our taking thought: we need only do everything that is given us to do every hour of every day and do it to the best of our ability, keeping our mind centered on God, the things of God, and the realm of God." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Isaiah 26:3 (to :) (KJV)
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:

Ephesians 3:14-21 (KJV)
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Perfect Peace - the fulfillment of unconditional Harmony - is present, beyond words and thoughts, in those focused on and Working about the Father's Business. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 9, 2021

"When we have progressed sufficiently far on this Path, doubtless we, too, as was the Master, will be tempted to use spiritual power, and it is then that we must resist the temptation to perform miracles, and be guided by the Master's spiritual wisdom not to glorify or cater to the self. If we could turn stones into bread, we would not need God, and those of us who are on the spiritual path would rather be an hungered than to find ourselves not needing God. It would be tragic to come to the place where we believe that we have risen so high that God has no place in our life. Rather, then, than attempt to perform a miracle that will make a show of our power, we will put away the temptation to pray for persons, conditions, or circumstances and make our life of prayer one of spiritual seeking, a seeking for spiritual enlightenment and spiritual Grace, one of praying for the understanding of the nature of spiritual riches and spiritual fulfillment." ~Joel S Goldsmith

II Chronicles 20: 15 for & 17 (to 3rd ,) (KJV)
15 …for the battle is not yours, but God's.
17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you,

John 5:30 (KJV)
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Psalms 55:16-18 (to :) (KJV)
16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.
17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:

If I am tempted to correct a so-called error in this-world, the very first thing I do is to remind myself of what Jesus Christ said, "I can of mine own self, do nothing". Wait a minute - if Jesus couldn't do anything to heal a problem, how come I think, I can. You see? This gets me to stop - it helps remind me not to react, for once I react and try to do something to the illusion I have begun to get caught up in a battle. It is the Father within that doeth the Works, so be ye still and Wait upon the Lord.

As in Joel's parable of the mirage in the desert where there is an appearance of water on the road. If I get all worked up and start to try to pump the water off the road, it is going to take me quite a while to calm down and understand the mirage for what it is… It is nothing, and therefore there is nothing to do to a mirage. I don't care how real the mirage seems, the battle is not yours. God is not going to do battle with a mirage either - so set yourself and be still and watch as He Performeth the thing that is appointed for me. ~Al Denninger


Daily Lesson - February 8, 2021

"As we give ourselves to the seeking of this spiritual kingdom, we discover that our outside world falls into place by itself; things begin to happen; and suddenly we awaken to find that the grace of God has brought us something of an unusual nature in the form of a healing, an enriching, a supplying, a companioning, or the teacher whose function it is to open our eyes. But these will not come while we are praying for them. They come, not by taking thought or by praying for them, but by dropping them out of our thought and letting God take care of our needs in His own way while we center our attention on what the kingdom of God realized is. All the ending things of the material realm are added unto us when we do not pray for them, when we seek only the Kingdom, when our thought is no longer on the things of this world, and is centered on the spiritual kingdom." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Matthew 6:6-8 (KJV)
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Matthew 6:31-33 (KJV)
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

John 4:9,10 & 13,14 (KJV)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

This is the great secret: As we let go of the noise and shadows of this-world and leave them behind, and Give our full attention to God, a clearer Awareness comes into focus. A Spiritual Kingdom of Harmony, Love and Fullness becomes centered in our Life. It doesn't change the bad dreams into good ones. It doesn't require anything from you, and you don't require anything from It. It just Is our sufficiency and Everlasting Life Itself, and there is no other. Nothing is more important. The old thoughts, dreams, thirsts and temptations have dissolved into the nothingness they always were. ~Al Denninger

Daily Lesson - February 7, 2021

"The ancient Greeks taught: 'Man, know thyself.' And what is this Self, but the son of God in us. There is a part of us, an area of our consciousness which is the son of God, and yet how few of us have any knowledge of this part of our being or any acquaintance with our innermost Self? How can we know that son of God in us? Only by turning within where the kingdom of God is, taking the time to be alone to seek the kingdom of God within. If we have to beg God, then let us beg God to reveal Himself, to reveal the son of God in us, to reveal the nature of His grace and of the spiritual kingdom, and the nature of the heavenly riches to which we are heir." ~Joel S Goldsmith

Romans 8:14 & 16-17 (KJV)
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

I Corinthians 13:9-12 (KJV)
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Zechariah 1:3 turn ye (to 4th ,) (KJV)
3 …Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you,

God put His Spirit in us that we may Be His Life Expressed, and so we are truly His Children and Heir. It is now time to put away the childish things and Know ourselves as He Knows Us. Turn ye. ~Al Denninger
