As the lightning cometh out of the East and shineth even unto the West, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Such is the sign of the coming of the Son of Man: man, even though having been born as the many are born, born of woman and to suffer, yet shall, through the power that is within himself, received from the All Father, so live and so believe that the Son of God shall be born within him and he shall know know even as Jesus, when he had become the Christ, knew; for all men shall so know when they have been born again, when they have passed through the Second Birth. And shall this be so? Listen to one of the Prophets of the long ago: We have also a more sure word of prophecy; where unto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts. This refers not to a far-off event. It refers not to some special incarnation of a special soul; but, my reader, it refers directly to you, it shows that you, in your carnal manifestation, are like a dark place, the body is full of darkness and there is no light therein. But, if you listen to the Voice of the Soul, if you listen to the Christ, who is now here, now with you, then will you begin to give heed to a light that shineth in a dark place, until in good time there will be a dawn, the old, corruptible self will give place to the new being, and the Light that is within, the Light of the Christ, will begin to shine in a dark place, the carnal self, and the day star, the Christ, will arise, not only in the external world, but within your own heart.
