RAYS OF PHILOSOPHY
“And upon this day
our Father says unto thee,
‘The glory of your God is upon thee,’
and those things
that thy should ask
in our Father’s name
should be given unto thee…
Rev. and Prophet Ray Elkins renews the vows of ministers and teachers.
“Live each day of thy lives and await his coming”
The 38th Annual Meeting of the Association of Universal Philosophy will begin at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the church to God Ray built on Dripping Springs Road, Christmas Star Route, Arizona. Please let us know if you will come.
As we have said before, hark, and hear these words….As meditation should be unto a time for listening to thy Lord, thy God -- and thy Lord, thy God, should say unto thee, “GIVE UNTO EACH MAN THAT THAT IS HIS” -- walk before our Lord in such a manner that thy come without hatred….
The Minister’s Vows
And now we should say unto thee these words. The time grows near when those of thy group thy have chosen for the ministry shall walk before our prophet, and therefore, be made unto ministers of this, our Father’s work. And they should do so in this manner. Each should walk before this one.
And this one should say unto them, “Should thee promise in our Father’s light to teach these things our Father has given unto thee to teach?
“Should thee at no time be prejudiced against any man?
“Should thee at all time, for those who come in need, minister in both healing of the body and healing of the soul and the spirit, and the immortal body of the same?”
And should they say, “yes,” then he should take of what thy should know of the candelabra, but this one should have of seven candles. And each one who is chosen should be presented with this. And, as each time he should say, “yes,” one candle should be lit. And then unto another.
These who should be chosen should be versed into the words we have spoken unto thee. They should have the honest effort unto helping mankind. And above all, they should enter all things with an open mind, closing their mind to nothing. And they shall never cease in their learning.
But you should remind them that the oath that they should take should be for [their] lifetime upon this plane and all others.
And then thy should ask into them, “Are you prepared to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah?”
And should they say, “yes,” then have them rise. And walk with them, and break bread with them and drink wine with them.
For remember, for those who you shall choose, among you, nothing can be hidden from one another. All things must come in truth from God, for you shall walk in the light of God, and should be known as men and women of God….
[And] we should say unto the youth of your group, fear not that thy should prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah. Thy have many questions; ask of these. For did our Father not say unto thee, “BLESSED ARE ALL MY CHILDREN.” Now is the time of the Cherub.
The Teacher’s Vows
Yes, we should answer in this manner. Let the teachers come unto the prophet. And let the prophet say unto the teachers, “For the teacher can never be greater than his student. And the student can never be greater than his teacher.” Let the prophet say unto them, “Take from thy hands all prejudice, that they shall teach in a righteous manner before their God.”
They shall serve under the direction of the prophet. They shall learn from your ministers.
And let the ministers stand and take a vow before the teacher that all of their knowledge shall be given freely unto the teacher, and they shall hide nothing from one another. But we say unto thee in these words, let minister or teacher hide that that has been given from one another, they shall no longer remain of either. And we say unto you in these words, what the Lord has given, the Lord can taketh away. Beware.
For this day we have laid aside that these teachers should be honored. And the Lord, God, shall look upon them, and He shall honor them. And the Council shall be present, and they shall honor them. For we, as they, are but teachers. And we are not great. We are here but for one purpose, as they should be, for the preparation for the coming of the Messiah. Let not they bring into this work prejudice of any kind.
And glory be the name of the Lord.
In the months before the first Annual Meeting, the spiritual messengers of God gave instructions.
Now we should say unto thee, provide for a guidance book for thy ministry. These things should come in this form:
· preparation for meditation, the difference between the prayer and the meditation of the same -- a time for listening unto our Lord; a time for speaking unto the same;
· the manner unto which we have prescribed before, of giving unto the marriage vows between man and woman;
· the manner unto which thy should give up thy dead unto the Lord, that thy may help in the preparation for the changing of the two worlds, that thy may give guidance that they might see our Father’s light.
Thy have taken unto thyselves and brought the bread; we shall furnish unto thee the yeast for the same. Fear not, for as we have said before, upon this rock we shall build a mighty temple unto God, our Father.
For our Father says unto thee, “HARK, MY CHILDREN, FOR I LOVE THEE SO.”
And upon this day our Father says unto thee, “The glory of your God is upon thee,” and those things that thy should ask in our Father’s name should be given unto thee.
But we should say unto thee…we are here to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah, and the Messiah shall be as a servant unto his Father. Then live each day of thy lives and await his coming.
Each man upon your earth shall worship his God in his own way. But he should do so in the privacy of his own heart and mind. And as you should pray unto your Father, say these things that should mean something to you, and therefore, it should mean something to our Father.
But if you should bring before our Father a gift, and have hatred in your heart for your brother, then take back your gift, and go unto your brother. But forgive thyself first and thy brother secondly, for if thy have not forgiven thy brother, how can thy possibly forgive unto thyself?...
But as thy should walk, walk in the light of God, each in his own way, with God’s blessings unto all mankind. Many should call their God in many tongues.
But we should answer in this manner your question of before. For as thy Father should give unto thee these words for thy own baptism of thy own people.
And as thy should take unto this one who should come before thee, thy should look upon this one and say unto them, “Do thy, before God, promise unto your Lord your spirit, your soul, and your immortal body? And [if] so, should thy try to live a life that thy Lord should look down upon His child and be proud of the same?”
And should this one say, “yes,” unto you, then have him go, and come again upon the second day.
And upon the second day, thy should say unto him, “Should thy give all things unto our Father that is His? Should thy give all things unto thyself that are yours? Should thy give all things that are thy brother’s into thy brother?” And should he say, “yes,” then have him come again upon the third day, of the third hour, of the third moment.
And there thy should say unto him, “Kneel before thy God.” And should he do so, take both water and sprinkle three drops upon his forehead. Take of the wine and sprinkle three drops upon his forehead. And then, should he rise, offer him bread. And say unto him, “I now thee baptize thee in the light of God.” And he should say unto you, “I accept your baptism from God.” And therefore, you have baptized the soul of this man.
But we should say again, our Father has many mansions. There is food for all. Give unto thy Father one-tenth of the love that Thy, our Father, gives unto thee. Give unto thy brother in the same manner. Denounce no man, religion, and their beliefs unto the same. Understand the way they should believe. Give of this wine in the same manner. Those who should reject it, do not denounce them for it, but praise them. But take of this and go unto the next. And if this is accepted, go into their house and drink of their wine, of their knowledge, and let them drink of your knowledge in the same manner.
Yes, we see thy need, and we should answer….Prepare thyself; open the door that the spirit should enter. Go forth and give glory unto your Father, and your Father should give glory unto thee. Of this new state of consciousness, we see thy need, and therefore, as we have said before, we walk before thee and prepare a way. Fear not. Walk in the light of God, and we shall walk with thee. Have faith, and thy shall walk on water with us.
Thy have other questions, ask.
“Yes, Aka. [4-1-72-001] who is here with us tonight has asked for direction….”
We shall answer first in this manner. We have come but for one purpose, that, in itself, is a preparing of a way for the coming of the Messiah. If thy should take unto thyself this purpose, carry the torch before thee and light the way for others. We shall enter and give thee guidance….
And now we say unto thee these words. For those who should see us, for those who should see us materialize in human form, we should answer your question in this manner. For those who have seen us have seen our Father, for we stand before Him as servants. We are here to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah. Glory be His name. Go out among your people. Give them your message, and we shall go with thee.
But the time grows short, for the Fifth Angel lies upon thy earth, and beside him stand four more. There is but two to pass before thee, and pray that these seals are never opened. [See The Revelation 6:1-11.]
Give us but one soul in each of what thy know [as] thy towns, and we shall spare of this in our Father’s day.
We have told into thee to take [up, of] the bread and the wine, for the bread shall be your soul and spirit, and the wine shall be that of our Father’s -- for as the body, the soul, and the spirit should come in completion of the immortal body of the same.
And they asked of the wine. Place of this before each. If they chose to, let them partake of the same.
But our Father does not ask for the blood of the Lamb. And the Lamb does not ask for the blood of man. For these things that belong to the earth also belong to our Father, for they were His in the beginning. And should the grape choose to become the wine for your offering, then the grape has seen fit to use of its free choice. And should the wheat of thy bread choose to come forth of its free choice unto your offering -- and should our Father’s children see to come forth of their free choice, and therefore, give up into our Father the offering of the same, this is their choice. But remember, this can be done anywhere, for this is between them and their God.
But as you should become ministers in the light of God, and therefore, speak of the words of God, this can be done unto your own people and those with free choice who come unto thee and ask. But as we have said before, go unto this house and knock. If they should bid you enter, drink of their wine, that they may drink of yours. But should they not, then take of this, and go elsewhere.
But we should say unto all of the disciples of this work, give that that is God’s to God; give that to your brother that is your brother’s; but just as important, give that unto yourselves that is yourselves’. But close your doors to no man. For we do not come to one people alone, but to all the people and all the children of God. Therefore, give glory unto God and God should give glory unto His children.
But mark these words -- for those who have been chosen to walk in the light of God and minister in the same manner, walk as a man and a woman of God. Be as a mirror into the same. For as we have said unto thee, for those who should see us should see of our Father, and thine should be likewise in the same manner. Do not step backwards.
And now, we should tell thee of a time soon to come, this of your calendar of May the 2nd, of your year. And as we have said before, the Fifth Angel stands upon thy earth. He no longer slumbers, but he holds in his hand the mighty Sword of God, that that should divide the people and the earth. And as we have said before -- where no water flowed, water shall flow again. Where water flew, it shall not, for your earth shall now start its change. And pray unto the Lord that it comes in your summer months. [See The Revelation, chapters 5-7, 14 and 19, Mark 13:1-4 and Mark 13:14-37.]….
But we leave unto all of thee these words. For the teacher should feel great and mighty in the eyes of man, but within their hearts, if they should stay humble in the eyes of God -- and God shall make them great. But a student shall never become more than the teacher, and the teacher shall never become more than the pupil. But your time of learning has come forth, and the Great Pyramid and the bird of the Great Pyramid should take flight, for now we shall give of thee the powers thy ask for.
Then days before the first Annual Meeting, a box with a dozen candelabras miraculously arrived on Ray’s doorstep with no paperwork or sender identified.]
And thy ask unto thyselves, “Why do they talk in riddles?” [Yet] we have given unto thee many words. We have given unto thee many lessons to pass forth upon the people of the land. We do not come to you alone. We have chosen you first to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah. But first you must prepare the way within yourselves. Thy have many questions, ask….
“Yes, Aka. You have made reference a number of times to the Seven Spirits of God. Could you tell me more about what you mean by this? Are they part of the council of Thirteen; are they different? What do you mean?”
The Seven Spirits of God are of the Seven Spirits of God. They are no part of any council. This dwells within thyself. As we have said before, open the door that we may enter. [See The Revelation, chapters 4-5.]
And we shall say once again, have faith and thy shall walk on the water with us….
But remember, (chuckle) we do not sleep. We are there night and day to give blessings unto the same. Then we should say unto thee these words. We shall give blessings unto your May meetings of the same.
Now is the time of the Cherub. Earthquakes shall come upon your earth. Fear these not, for the children of God shall walk with God and give guidance unto the children of man.
Place into thy house no false images unto thy Father, for we have not asked that thy should build a mighty temple. The temple we should seek is within thy hearts, thy souls, thy spirits, and thy immortal body of the same. And before your ordination, let all go unto soul Ray, and we should place in his mind these things he should say unto thee.
As we have said before, the Fifth Angel sets before thee. The strong shall stand, and the children of God shall walk forward and prepare the way. The weak shall fall. Help them to stand, but do not become a crutch for the same. As we have said, from your May 2nd, great pressures are upon your earth from your planetary system. These within the same shall cause the same pressures within man. Tempers shall become short. Death shall come unto many. Your earth shall erupt in many places. Fear not this. That that man has placed in the sea shall come forth to sting him and torment him. We have said before, now is the time of the great Sword. Where no water flowed water shall flow. Where mountains rose they shall be no more. These times of trial shall continue into your year of 1999. [Note: Jesus said that about the date or hour, no one knows, not even the angels of heaven. Some things may have been averted through prayers to God.]
Wars and rumors of war shall rage upon your earth. But for the children of God, we shall walk before thee and prepare the way. Thy thyselves must prepare the way within thyselves. There shall be many who should shout angrily at thy. Forgive of these, for they know not what they do. But we have said in this manner, thy are thy brother’s keeper. Take each morning with love, and end it with love. And in this manner love shall blossom forth upon your earth. And therefore, as has been promised, your thousand years of peace shall come. But they shall come as our Father counts, not as you. And each day shall be as a thousand years upon your earth.
Within your Government great scandal shall come forth. And your Government shall shake and prepare to fall, but it shall not. For from it shall grow a better, more Godly government than exists at your present time.
But remember, let none of the children of God strike with their hand or their mouth to another. For as the spirits of God shall flow as a brook, as the souls and the spirits shall flow as the rivers, and as the soul of man shall flow to the oceans and to the many lands, so shall these words that we have given unto thy keeping.
And we should say to those who should walk away, all thy must do is open the door that we may enter, for we are not great; we are but the servants and messengers of your Lord, God.…Your Lord, your Father, is a loving Father. He should give love and kindness unto all. He has given unto thy keeping free will, but only that thy should not violate another’s free will…. But we warn thee now, cast no further stones, or we shall stand before this, and the wrath of the Lord shall be mighty…. For only through this work have the hands of the Cherubims been stayed; for, as we have said before, should the Seventh Seal be opened, yea, yea, beware, for mankind, for there is many who have cried unto our Father for justice. [See The Revelation 6:9-17, chapters 7-8.]
And so, we say unto thee….
Since the first Annual Meeting in 1972, the spiritual messengers of God, and Ray, have told the ministers and teachers, and all those in the Association, that what stands between the Seventh Seal is this work. Could the timing of the first Annual meeting until the 38th Annual Meeting, now, reveal the purpose of the ordination of ministers and certification of teachers or of Aka’s coming? [See The Revelation, chapter 7.]
As we have said before, soul Ray is I, and I am soul Ray, for I come from a different time, a different plane. For the link to be made, the souls had to be tied together. As a before time, when soul Ray asked his Father for death and was given this gift unto the same, but yet, as he was given the gift of life and the gift to go forth and prepare a way for the people, he chose this. It was of free choice.
We are of the Council of Thirteen. As we have said before, for those who should see of us in their mind’s eye, they shall see our Father, for we shall stand as close to soul Ray as his breath, but yet, we shall stand as close to our Father as His eyes and His heart and His tongue. For those things that were given in truth shall be received in truth. Can thy understand of which we speak?... [See John 14:1-21, 16:6-27, 17:1-8, 20-26, Acts 1:12-26, 2:1-28, The Revelation 1:1-3, 1:10-20, chapters 4-8, 12:1-2, 14:1-7, 14:14-20, chapter 15, 19:1-16, and 22:6-22.]
But we should leave thee with these words. For those who were chosen, you said unto one another, “I shall hide nothing from the other. Everything I say and do unto each other should be in the truth of God.” Remember thy vows.
we renew our vows
The spiritual messengers of God spoke many times, as they did July 8, 1974: We say unto you, thy haven’t known of the story of Jonah, that our Lord, God, sent him forth unto the city to warn the people of a day of destruction of the city? And the people did change their ways and turn back unto their God, and the Lord, God, spared the city….ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN THE SEVENTH SEAL IS THIS WORK…Pray that the Seventh Seal not be opened. [See The Revelation 8:1-5.]
name, Aka, in Hebrew means “messenger.” The spiritual
messengers of God arrived
Within a week they spoke of the red horse (of second seal on the Lamb’s Book of Life.) Did the Lamb open the first of the seven seals on his Book of Life when He sent them? [See The Revelation, chapters 4-7.]
We are here to prepare the minds of men for the time that the Messiah should come upon your earth, and to fulfill the words that were spoken by our Lord when He did promise unto thee a thousand years of peace. But remember, this time shall come, not as you count, but as our Father -- your God, your Father -- did count. [See John 14-17, and The Revelation of John, chapter 5, -16 and chapters 21-22.]
Remember, now is the time of the Cherub, and we are here but for one purpose, to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah. Let this be a time of gladness. And let God’s children have before them hands of welcome, for only with the use of your own free will can this happen.
Was the Fifth Angel’s walk upon the Earth after the first Annual Meeting of the Lamb’s timing?
Then, thirteen years after the spiritual messengers of God arrived and began the Association in Globe, they announced in 1983 that the Sixth Angel had begun to walk upon the Earth. El Nino, named for the Christ Child, was discovered then, bringing climate changes -- increasingly frequent and intense floods, storms, tornados, hurricanes in some parts of the Earth, and drought and famine in others. [See The Revelation 6:9-17.]
Many, many times they have spoken to us, and many, many signs, guidance and answers to prayers have we been given. As we study their words, let us remember things we have seen, that we may have faith.
In the most holy of weeks, during Rosh Hashanah,
May 23, 1973: For this Book is not a book for today or tomorrow, but the book you are providing shall lay forth before man for a thousand years, not as you count, but as our Father counts.
A covenant is “the conditional promises to man made by God, as revealed in scriptures,” according to Webster’s Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary. It “was the agreement between God and the ancient Israelites, in which God promised to protect them if they kept His Law and were faithful to Him.” In Moses’ time, the ark of the covenant which housed God’s Law had two cherubim on top with outstretched wings. It was through the wings of God’s spiritual messengers that God entered and spoke to Moses in a covenant with His people.
May we all prepare a place within our hearts and minds for the
coming of the Messiah, and go on with this work.
We would say unto you, unto these words. First, your decisions must be made.
It has been said by your members, “Who brought forth the rituals of marriage and burial? Who brought forth the prayers, and robes − and all these things?” We did. We brought them forth and gave them. We gave them as a gift, as a father would give to a child. Yet, there are times when the greatest gift shall be thrown aside by the child, for they know it not.
say unto you, we will give you that which you ask. If you wish it to prosper
and grow, and become holy and complete, we say to you, there is a time when
tithing is necessary. Did not Abraham and Levi give ten percent of all their
goods unto the Prince of
We say unto you unto these words, if you are to exist, exist in the manner in which we came. For look into the heavens and know these things that we say to be true. We came with a great comet. And know that the comet, [or] a part of the same, shall soon return − and we shall go.
We have placed into your hands the tools that are necessary. Yet you see them not. You know them not. If what we have given is good, it shall rise. But let it flow freely as a brook should flow to the great rivers, and from the great rivers should flow unto the mighty oceans − and there to flow to the many shores. The greatness of mankind, and those things we told you in the beginning, are but at hand. These days are soon about you. If you run and hide, do not do this. We have told you to prepare where you are, and how to prepare for these times.
We have placed in the mind of soul Ray many truths. We say to you, his mind and his heart has grown tired. And so has his physical body. With our coming, we did not promise to restore him, but to keep him but for a purpose, as long as he freely wished to do so. There are many doorways. We have told you the same thing in many ways, so that you may choose from some of them. We have told you that the spirits of God are like the universe, [the] galaxies, for they are all part of God. The beginning and the ending is all part of the Lord. In His time, all of the prophecies that you have shall come about.
We shall tell you that a shifting of
the power of the Eagle [
Listening to Aka,
the spiritual messengers of God
as they spoke through Ray Elkins
Aka is here.
"Good evening, Aka, where is Ray?"
Soul Ray stands with God.
And now, we say unto thee, be thee transformed. Be thee in the light of our Father; for our Father, as thee will be in His light, He shall be in thine.
And we say unto thee, we would tell thee of a time which was before. And as the great bird spread its wings from the pyramid, so was born Abraham and Isaiah.
Therefore, we should tell thee of this time, and of the
All man, as thy would know them, did not leave of their scientific knowledge, for in the tomb below the city of Cairo lies these records, and of the prophecies of the men of the God of One, for these men knew of the beginning and the ending of all, [for] these men were of our kind and of our likeness.
Can thy understand into which we speak? [See Genesis 1:26-27, 11:1-9, 14:18-20, 15:5, 17:1-23, 22:1-18.]
"I think we do, Aka."
You have many questions; ask of these.
“You said Friday night that you would like to give a continuation on [10-2-70-001]. At this time you can give us that information?”
We would say unto this soul, thy have not
fully studied unto which this man,
Can thy understand of which we speak? [See Genesis 18:16-33, 19:1-38.]
"Yes.” [[10-2-070-001] says.]
Then be thee transformed.
Then we would say unto thee, soul Luke, we have seen thy need, and given thee thy help in thy time of need. And we send this message into thee once again. Our Father loves thee and blesses thee, and there shall be great work unto thee. And the healing that thy have asked for shall be given.
And for those in the valley below the sea [Note: Soul Luke at that time
Now we would suggest that thy should waken soul Ray from his slumber.

We have done that that has been necessary in the preparation, and we shall continue. You should do that that is necessary for the preparation, for we have given you the wine and the bread. Must we also provide the yeast?
And for those who should doubt unto the words that we have spoken, let them too look at the flowers that we have placed at their feet. We came and gave you a sign in the heavens upon our arrival. Now we give you a sign upon the earth of beauty. Give this beauty from your souls, that others may see the flowers also. Let each of you in your own manner come into your May meeting as a new beginning and a new birth. Come there with hope and happiness within your hearts. Show this into others. Let this be a festival occasion for all.
