Oahspe's stated purpose is:
Oahspe Prologue, 02/1.24.
to teach mortals HOW TO ATTAIN TO HEAR THE CREATOR'S VOICE, and to SEE HIS HEAVENS, in full consciousness, while still living on the earth; and to know, in truth, the place and condition waiting for them after death.
That being understood, the concomitant and clearly collective purpose becomes apparent by the time one reaches the last book in Oahspe: Jehovih's Kingdom on Earth. That purpose: to establish Jehovih's Kingdom on Earth.
To fulfill both purposes requires individual spiritual development evolving into a greater more comprehensive purpose within the context of family, community, nations and the earth. Accordingly, attaining Jehovih's Kingdom on Earth requires a progression of man as an individual and as a member of his kind.
For the Faithist, then, progress towards Jehovih's Kingdom on Earth can be essentially defined in three steps:
1. Be Vegan - Serve Jehovih if you would live a happy life
2. To Serve Jehovih is to obey His commands and commandments
3. Jehovih's intent is, with man's assistance, to bring about Jehovih's Kingdom on Earth, in its fullness. If you would most effectively assist to that end then come out of uz and be clean --- become a practicing Faithist as indicated throughout Oahspe, and as defined by Jehovih for this 7th Era.
For each step there is also an associated development of the three attributes of the Creator:
LOVE - WISDOM - POWER
And each step is a progression in grade from 1 to 99:
1. The first
step of Vegan lifestyle and serving Jehovih, being the Love step, is suitable
for those traversing Grades 1 to 33 in their effective-resurrection-grade
(recall that putting animal substance into the body puts a person at grade 1
insofar as diet is concerned and hence will subtract from his aspirations and
grade of service; see, e.g., 04/4.11 & 26/13.3-4 among other Oahspe
citations too numerous to mention).
In fulfilling this first step, man increasingly experiences the love of the Father.
second Step of obeying Jehovih's commandments and learning to perceive and obey
His commands, is the Wisdom step and is suitable for Grades 33 to 66.
Bear in mind that unless and until a person fulfills the first step, s/he will find it difficult to fulfill the commandments, and consequently, cannot advance much in perceiving Jehovih's commands. While the angels of Jehovih's kingdom are capable of amplifying His will and otherwise providing clarity and inspiration, it is not a given that this will always occur. Jehovih's angels work to raise man to resurrect --- that includes allowing him to suffer the consequences of his choices. Oahspe has shown how time and again Jehovih's angels are called away to allow man to experience cause and effect its full extent. )
But to those who became constitutionally vegan and who have also advanced along the path of serving Jehovih, His commands become increasingly clearer and the Wisdom of His ways begins to be perceived within their soul. And as this talent of perceiving Wisdom grows through that Faithist's increasing appreciation and love, it blossoms into a Tree of Indescribable Beauty within the expanse of the soul.
3. The third is the Power step and is attained in its fullness in the
grades 66 to 99. This requires coming out of uz (the system and order of the
world's people) and being clean. While this can be done by a single Faithist,
it is wiser and therefore better to do so as a family as in "gather up
your household" (-- 32/17.26 - see below). For, the greatest power comes
from many working to one end.
And while the single practicing Faithist will attract angels of similar aspiration, and therefore can learn to work with Jehovih's kingdom, and therefore produce some good in the world, yet a family of practicing Faithists will be more potent in their labor and of great value (toward Jehovih's kingdom on earth in its fullness) --- though by uzian standards it might not seem so. And by their Faith in Jehovih's Love, Wisdom and Power, their faith is extended to embrace His kingdom (see e.g. 33/7.36 - see below).
By "practicing Faithist" is meant those who covenant to fulfill the discipline necessary to be called Faithists by Jehovih (see 02/1.16-20). Remember, though, that anyone who attempts to follow their highest light and do good is on the right track, regardless of discipline or its lack. Yet compared to those of the 3rd step, it is as the difference between a child or apprentice going forth compared to a master craftsman.
May we all rise to the light of His heavens and fulfill in the glory of His earth.
Oahspe, God's Book of Judgment, 32/17.21-26.
I come as your elder brother, in the name of Jehovih. I show you how you can live without the governments of man. And how you shall live, in order to join in my resurrections.
Let the Faithist of this day not say: I will purify the government! I will leaven the whole mass!
I say to you, your God does not labor in such method.
The cure is, come out of Uz, and be clean.
Whoever has more faith in Uz, let him remain in Uz; whoever has faith in Jehovih, let him come into His kingdoms.
To know your Father in heaven, O man, who has learned this? They profess Him in words, but they belie Him in their behavior.
Renounce them, O my beloved; gather up your household, and follow my voice, which I speak into your soul from the Almighty. Follow your highest knowledge, and make yourself a glory in Jehovih’s kingdoms, forever and ever.
Oahspe, Book of Discipline, 33/7.36.
Your glory is to fulfill the all highest yourself. When all who can, will do this, then, on that (as a foundation) rest your faith that the quickening power and wisdom of Jehovih will sustain His kingdom through His holy angels.
