CAP. 1

DESCRIBING WHAT ACTUALLY PERTAINS TO THE OFFICE OF Ons. DIRECTORIS, WHEN CONSIDERED IN ITS WHOLE EXTENT,

 S. 1

1) TO RAISE-UP COLLECTIVE HUMANITY, WHO HAVE BY THE PITIFUL FALL OF MAN, SUNKEN FAR BELOW THE ORIGINAL DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN ESTATE;

 2) THROUGH SIN, WHICH SO DARKENED, AND DEFACED THE IMAGE OF GOD, AND TO RESTORE THE SAME, IF POSSIBLE, TO THOSE ALREADY LIVING ON THIS SIDE OF THE GRAVE, AND CONSEQUENTLY;

 3) TO SAVE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THE DEARLY REDEEMED SOULS OF HUMANITY FROM THE CLUTCHES OF SATAN;

 4) TO MEET THE SOUL-MURDERER, THE ANCIENT SERPENT WITH ALL THE POSSIBLE RESISTANCE AND DESTRUCTIVENESS IMAGINABLE, AND TO CHALLENGE UNCEASINGLY THE EMPIRE OF DARKNESS ON GOD’S EARTH, ON THE OTHER HAND HELPING TO ESTABLISH,

5) THE LUMINOUS KINGDOM OF OUR HIGHLY-LIVING REDEEMER, JESUS CHRIST, TO BUILD MANY SOULS ARIGHT.

 6) LIKE THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, PREPARING THE WAY, AND FORGING A TRAIL FOR THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD.

 7) THROUGH THE INVISIBLE BROTHERHOOD SPREAD ACROSS THE ENTIRE WORLD, THE SUPREME SHEPHERD JESUS WILL GATHER THEM INTO ONE CHURCH, AND PREPARE A COMMUNITY THAT IS MAGNIFICENT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH EPH. 5. V. 27 NOT HAVE A SPOT OR WRINKLE OR ANY SUCH THING, BUT THAT IT SHOULD BE HOLY AND WITHOUT SIN;

 8) THE HEAD OF THIS ENTIRELY BENEVOLENT AND ESSENTIAL COMMUNITY IS A BROTHER, WHO HAS CONTRIVED AND GENUINELY PROVEN, HOW TO PRESERVE ONESELF THROUGH THE ANOINTMENT OF WELL-BEING. SPIRITS, WITH GLORIOUS GIFTS, EQUIPPED, AND SENT HIM TO DO, AS A COMMANDER OF JUSTICE, THEIR HIGH CALLING, AND THE ORDERS OF THE SUPREME MASTER-BROTHER WERE MORE PERFECTLY ALIGNED, WITH THIS END IN ITSELF (END RESULT, FINAL PURPOSE).

 9) BY HIM, THE HIGH On. WITH GOD-GIVEN POWER, AND DEEP INSIGHT INTO THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE HIDDEN FORCES OF NATURE, AND BY SWEEPING THEM INWARDS TO UNLEASH THE LIGHT OF NATURE IMPRISONED DEEP BENEATH THE DROSS OF THE CURSE, AND ASSISTING ITS OUT-RETURN, AND THEREBY IGNITING WITHIN EVERY WORTHY BROTHER, A TORCH, THAT WITH THE AID OF ITS LUMINOUS EFFULGENCE, HE MAY BECOME COGNIZANT OF THE INVISIBLE DEITY, THE MAJESTY OF THE FATHER, IN FULLY HOLY ASTONISHMENT AND AWE, MANIFESTED IN DEEPEST DEVOTION AND WORSHIP, AND THEREBY UNITING MORE CLOSELY WITH THE SOURCE OF ALL RADIANCE, IN THE GRACIOUS FELLOWSHIP OF THE DIVINE REDEEMER, AND OF THE HOLY ANGELS, WHO IN LIKE MANNER ARE TRULY JOYOUS AND BLESSED, FOREVER IN TIME.

THIS, BELOVED BRETHREN! IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL, THE HIGH Ons., WHO HAS CARED FOR US ENOUGH TO TAKE US INTO HIS BOSOM. HEALING YOU! OUR SALVATION! WHEN OUR SOUL IS EVER FILLED WITH THE GREATEST SINGLE THOUGHT:

WHO AMONG US FOR A MOMENT OF INDOLENCE, NEGLIGENCE, OR CARELESSNESS HAS RUN THE RISK OF NEGLECTING THE THINGS OF THE LORD, AND OF THE ORDER?
