What is the Word as used in the New Testament?

What is the Word as used in the New Testament?

The Word is God in his character of Creator and Manifester. Nature and the spirit are its great symbols to our race. God spake and all things were made; hence, to those who first received the idea, came the term. The idea had to come to man's intelligence, but any other term might have been used, for words signify nothing in themselves.

Does each soul have a word that expresses it? 

Yes; that is so, for each soul bears a separate and individual relation to the great Source.

Could we not discover that word? 

It is not of great importance at present, for now you and I must be making ourselves worthy of that new name, which it is written is to be found in the book of life.

Is this the name that shall be written on a white stone? 

Yes; all those things are used as symbols; I know of a better one, which I have just learned; do you perceive it? I mean a new symbol. I am trying to give it to you. Write it, Endurance. see it cannot be; wait with patience until you are wiser.

Where did you learn this symbol? 

In the universe to which I have just been.

M. wishes to know whether it is well to think of God as having form? 

Yes; if that is the way you can come nearest to Him.
