The Experience of a Truly Good Man Entering the Spirit World

Even as a child is born on earth, with friends around it to rejoice at its coming, so do kind and loving spirit friends welcome into the spirit world a truly good man’s spirit. The incorruptible leaves the corruptible in the twinkling of an eye; but before his spirit has thus departed, and while the dissolution is about to take place, the spirit friends enter into communion with him, and magnetize the body, which gives him liberty to go out. As soon as he has departed, his friends also withdraw from the body, and hear him hence. For a long while it is like a pleasant dream, and he begins to reflect within himself as to the cause of his not waking up; he looks around him now, and beholds many of his friends whom he remembers to have been long since dead. As fast as he remembers them, they come to him and greet him kindly, lovingly. Then comes his loving wife and daughter; then perhaps a little son that he once almost idolized.

Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage

We are blessed to have instructions provided to us in the Oahspe on the subjects of marriage, divorce and remarriage, as well as many other topics. The Oahspe Bible even includes instructions on how to address modern day social issues that were either never heard of or rarely ever mentioned 200 years ago. The world in general does not understand the seriousness of marriage, and thus divorce is seen as an “easy way out” of a bond that otherwise should have been for a lifetime. Sadly, the manner in which divorce and remarriage has been handled in many Uzian churches has caused a great deal of heartache and division, not only in families, but also within their religious organisations and churches. This kind of confusion is something that Faithists must avoid, especially if they are to be seen as having a proper covenant with the Ever-present Creator.

The Oahspe is the Official Bible of Faithists

The Oahspe is often called the Kosmon Bible or Oahspe Bible. It is the official Bible for Faithists. It is the Holy Book — the Holy Scriptures, of the Faithist Church. Although it did come down by guidance through angels, it is not considered immaculate or perfect, because it was still through human hands that it was eventually relayed to the public. “Books are maculate; but Jehovih, is the Immaculate.” (Judge. 20:29) “Not infallible is this Book, Oahspe; but to teach mortals how to attain to hear the Creator’s Voice, and to see His heavens, in full consciousness, whilst still living on the earth; and to know of a truth the place and condition awaiting them after death.” (Oah. v.24)

Jehovih, God, Lord

For those who are not familiar with the Oahspe and how certain words may be utilized throughout the text, I wanted to share with you this note from the introductory matter to the 2016 edition, especially in regard to the use of the terms “God” and “Lord”.

Is Living in a Faithist Community for Everyone?

Ideally, those who have covenanted with the Creator would live in a community designed specifically with their needs and requirements in mind. However, what is ideal for some, may be impossible for others. We can not judge others because of their particular situation in life. Some brethren have voiced their desire to live in a community but due to family obligations, young children, lack of finances to move to another country, or other reasons, that they are unable to do so. Some have expressed that they feel they may be letting the Creator down because of their particular lot in life.

Unity in Essentials

Solidarity among people of like faith is of vital importance in this day and age. We are called to have unity in whatever acceptable fashion that it can take. For Faithists today, a full unity is not entirely foreseeable in a short period of time, but an “interfaith union” is certainly possible. If our faith is strong and our knowledge of the Oahspe and the manners in which the Heavenly Father reveals His intentions is adequate and properly maintained, we can easily overlook certain idiosyncrasies of Faithists that are not directly associated with us. Logically, we would not accept anything that is in direct violation of the revealed purposes and teaching of the Father.

Communicating with the Spirit World

Some people have been mistaken in thinking that when we speak of “spiritualism” or holding a “spiritual church service” that we are referring to communicating with the demon world. When Faithists speak of communication with the righteous angels or holy celestial beings, we in no way mean that one should be communicating with demoniac forces from the kingdom of darkness, or attempting to conjure up the souls of lost loved ones, holding seances, or using anything related to the demons or dark angels.

What the Angels of the Creator Reveal

The Angels of the Creator reveal: That human beings on this planet are living at the bottom of an ocean of Mind which is composed of the minds of past undeveloped inhabitants of the earth. The majority of these minds or spirits are selfish, un-aspiring, and un-progressive. They vibrate in sympathy with the lowest qualities in human minds, and thus cloud and depress noble motives and hinder spiritual progress. This great mass of human spirits impinges upon all human natures without exception. They are a cause of disease, decrepitude, and other human ills. They keep, the Creator from expressing through humanity, impeding growth and the expression of its higher potential.

Unity and Harmony Amongst Brothers and Sisters

“Discover the good that is in your neighbour, and laud him therefore, for this is the method of raising him higher.” (Book of Discipline 7:15) We read in the Scriptures, “There is divine unity amongst my disciples, but each have also been granted a special freedom by my Father in all those matters which are not considered essential to the liberation of the soul.” Faithism upholds the importance of unity among all its members, regardless of their status as laity or clergy. When we speak of unity it does not mean developing a “Borg” or cult mentality. Faithists are never asked to believe in anything other than the essentials – brethren maintain unity in doctrine by remaining steadfast in the essentials of the Faith. Therefore, diverse thoughts, within righteousness, are permitted among the brethren, especially where direct teachings have not yet been provided by the celestial beings, especially of the current era.
