Spiritual Power and Color

Wings
"The subconscious realm has twelve great centers of action, with twelve presiding egos or entities. When Jesus Christ had attained a certain soul development, He called His twelve disciples to Him. This means that when man is developing out of mere personal consciousness into spiritual consciousness, he begins to train deeper and larger powers; he sends his thought down into the inner centers of his being, and through his word quickens them to life. Where before his powers have worked in the personal, now they begin to expand and work in the universal. This is the first and second coming of Christ, spoken of in the Scriptures. The first coming is the receiving of Truth into the conscious mind, and the second coming is the awakening and the regeneration of the subconscious through the superconscious or Christ Mind."

Explanation
Faith is the power of belief in Spirit to do great works. We have faith in electricity that when we throw a light switch, the light will come on. How much greater then is the power of faith in God? Faith is the power through which Jesus Christ performed his many works. As Charles Fillmore stated, "It was not to the personal Peter that Jesus gave the keys to his kingdom, but to all who through faith apply the binding (affirming) and loosing (denying) power of Spirit in the earth (substance consciousness)." To set Spirit loose to do great works through us, we must first believe that Spirit can accomplish all that we ask and more.

Charles Fillmore also stated, "'Give, and it shall be given unto you' is the statement of a law that operates in every thought and act of man. This law is the foundation of all barter and financial exchange. Men scheme to get something for nothing; but the law, in one of its many forms, overtakes them in the end. Even metaphysicians, who above all people should understand the law, often act as if they expected God to provide abundantly for them before they have earned abundance. It is an error to think that God gives anybody anything that has not been earned. The Holy Spirit comes upon those who pray in the 'upper room.' The 'upper room' corresponds to the 'mount of Jehovah.' It is the high place in consciousness where man realizes the presence of Divine Mind. The greatest work that one can do is to strive to know God and to keep His law. God pays liberally for this service and the reward is sure. Faith is built up in consciousness under this law."

Quotes
  • Now faith is assurance of things hoped for. A conviction of things not seen. -- Hebrews 11:1
  • Faith is nothing but a living, wide-awake consciousness of God within. -- Gandhi
  • Faith is the bird that feels the light, and sings when the dawn is still dark. -- R. Tagore
“When the Bible says, ‘For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,’ (Matthew 18:20) Jesus is referring to using your spiritual powers together to magnify them. By using or calling on Faith and Strength together, we will achieve more. By pairing Wisdom and Power, we will speak words of truth with authority. By combining the spiritual powers we multiply them.”

  — paraphrased from Rev. Dona Gilsdorf during a Twelve Powers class
