In our booklet, "THE WAY OUT" was pointed the way to freedom from lack,
limitation, inharmony, disease and unhappiness, and there is no excuse for any who
faithfully follow the suggestions given to be any longer in such condition.
The booklet has reached scores of thousands of readers and many have been lifted by its truths into a new consciousness, and thereby into a new world, where everything and everybody are changed, for they are seeing with new eyes, and with different understanding.
That which appears is no longer what it seemed, but the good and the real are now visible and can be seen shining through all conditions and people -because they are now looked for, and the former negative tendencies are tabooed and not allowed to enter the consciousness.
This is not the case with all of course, for a great number have not been able to conquer those tendencies which so long have been permitted to rule. The press of circumstances and the negative conditions everywhere manifest seemingly have been too much for them and they have become utterly discouraged, not knowing that they actually have within themselves the power to rise out of these conditions, and that help is waiting the moment they awaken from their despondency and definitely determine to do the best they can to prove the truth of what was stated in the booklet.
It is for such that this new Message is written, with the earnest desire that all who read will be so inspired by its truths that they will make the necessary effort and will thus receive the good that has been waiting for them from the beginning.
We first urge that everyone who reads procure a copy of "THE WAYOUT", if one is not already owned, and that it be studied carefully and prayerfully. It will do no good merely to read it, even to study it, unless what is given you to do is faithfully TRIED until proven -that is, tried day after day in all your thinking, speaking and acting, for at least one month.
If you will do it that long, we promise that such a change will manifest in your consciousness and likewise in your affairs that it will be a turning point in your life, and you will never again return to the old way of thinking and acting. Is it not then worth the effort? Then do not let anything prevent your making a supreme effort, asking God to give you the strength and ability to accomplish what we have shown.

GOD AND MAMMON
In the following verses from the Sermon on the Mount is found all that anyone needs to know who is facing the tribulations now being visited upon humanity and is seeking the reason and purpose of it all and how to be free from them.
We will point out to you how wonderfully it all applies to this very question we have been discussing and how it perfectly confirms all that was stated. We will start with these significant words:
"No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will cling to the one and neglect the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
Think carefully what this means. How many of you are not trying to serve two masters? Yes, you are trying to serve God, but who of you at the present time are not fearing money and its power? Who are not bowing down before it, daily acknowledging its power over you, afraid to do anything because of the control it has over most of your thoughts and acts? In fact is not its influence such that it receives now ten times - nay, one hundred times-more of your thoughts than does God?
And yet you say you are not serving mammon!
Dear friends, you cannot continue this way. You cannot any longer serve two masters. The time has come when you must decide whom you will serve -God or mammon. For why think you these tribulations are being visited upon mankind? It is because in the past you have been trying to serve both God and mammon, and now both have withdrawn their support and are letting you cast for yourself.
So you are finally learning that you of yourself can do nothing, and you are now facing the necessity of choosing whom you will serve and to whom you will give all your allegiance -for when you do choose that is what will be required of you.
And this applies particularly to all seekers after Truth, but includes also those who may in any way have claimed God's help. For those who are truly serving Him, placing all their trust in Him, are unaffected by present conditions and are continually prospered.
While those who have given full allegiance to mammon are likewise greatly prospered seemingly; but their time of reckoning has not yet come.
We are not interested in the latter, however.
Our thoughts are for you -you who are anxious to serve God and to free yourself from the power of mammon forever. To you Jesus' words are especially directed. Hear them, for they are actual promises and contain very definite and unmistakable instructions for you:
"Therefore I say unto you, Be not anxious about your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor about your body, what you shall wear. Is not the life of more value than food, and the body than raiment?
"Observe the birds of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of greater value than they?
"Besides, which of you by being anxious can prolong his life one moment? And why are you anxious about raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow; they toil not neither do they spin; and yet I tell you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
"Wherefore, if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?"
Here you are told plainly the difference between what is required of those who would serve God and those who serve mammon. The former are clearly shown that they need not be overly concerned about the affairs of their life -about food, drink and clothes; for they are promised that God will take care of all these things if they trust Him. Besides they know that it is His life that is in them, even as in the birds and the lilies, and surely He will feed and clothe and provide for His own life.
But does mammon require such trust? No, he ever holds over his servants the whip of fear of loss, lack and poverty until they become abject slaves to his slightest wish.
The former in their efforts to please God develop and portray a life of loving and selfless service. While the latter as they yield more and more to mammon develop into cold and heartless beings, thinking only of how to satisfy their utterly selfish lusts. But listen further to Jesus' words:
"Therefore be not anxious saying, what shall we eat or what shall we drink, or wherewithal shall we be clothed?
"For all these the Gentiles seek, and your heavenly Father knows you have need of all these things.
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
The Gentiles was a term used by the Jews as synonymous with "heathen" or those who were not of the "chosen people of God," and undoubtedly Jesus used it with that meaning.
In other words, the chosen of God, His servants, know Him and trust him fully for all their needs. But the Gentiles, those who are not His people, are the ones who are always anxious about what they shall eat or drink or how they shall be clothed.
So Jesus tells us that if we will make first the seeking of the Kingdom of God - the Divine Consciousness where love and peace abide, putting all our trust in God and giving all our service to Him -all the things needed in the physical world will be richly provided.
The Emphatic Diaglot translation from the original Greek states they will be "superadded."
"Be not anxious then for the morrow, for the morrow will have its own problems. Sufficient for each day are the problems thereof." How much more plainly can it be declared to us that we are being lovingly watched over and cared for, that all our needs are known and will be supplied, and that our only thought should be a knowing that everything will be provided for us, even as God provides for the birds and the lilies?
Then it all resolves itself in a matter of trusting and abiding, and of doing the thing that is right before us to do the very best we know how, leaving the results, tomorrow and all else to God. Can you bring yourself to do this, dear friends? You must decide now. This is the time when we must choose on which side we will stand. Only a little while remains.
Whom then are you going to serve? Do you require more tribulations and harder tests to help you decide?
But remember it can no longer be a halfhearted or a divided service. That will not be any longer permitted. The hopelessness of such should have been proved to you from former efforts. You must give up all - all that you have and are -and follow Him; must make Him and the finding of His Kingdom and the living of His life FIRST in your consciousness. It must be an every-moment-of-the-day trusting; the thought of Him must supersede every other thought.
That is the kind of trusting He now seeks from you. And oh, the joy and blessedness of those who have given themselves over wholly to Him in such trusting!
