For in the giving of time and effort and money also, even by these things do you
fill up your heart and mind with Heaven, causing that all shadows and illusions should
flee themselves away, finding in you no darkness where they might lurk and constant
4th Endowment 31:38
If then you would free yourself of every illusion, then be you wise and act with
firmness, being eager to take to your soul the joy of sacrifice; becoming in your
daily offerings like unto a good and loving mother, who for the love of her family
will gladly sacrifice even all she has, and this in joy.
4th Endowment 31:14
Neither fear such sacrifices as you are called to bear from time to time, for by
such sacrifices as you do make, do you cause that your own soul should fly and sing,
being made yourself as one with God, to become yourselves as angels upon the earth.
4th Endowment 18:47
6. Thus if you would free yourself of illusion, to sweep away the shadows before
your eyes, then know most deeply within that in the sacrifice of temporal things
are all illusions swept away, causing your spirit to come alive within you.
7. For at your birth is there heaped upon you the illusions of mortality, causing
that in your youth you should continue such illusions as even your own parents and
friends are subject to; and in the living of your life do you add to these the delusions
of the self, imprisoning yourselves in obscurities and darknesses of every kind.
8. Yet in the sacrifice of temporal things do you set free yourself of every illusion,
to draw yourself closer unto God; for it is in the sacrifice of such temporal things
as would imprison you that you grow day by day ever more spiritual, causing that
there should shine out from the depths of you all things sacred and divine.
9. But if you will not sacrifice the temporal while yet you claim yourself as one
made spiritual, then have you deceived yourself, and there is no light in you but
10. Preaching to yourself the sermons of the ego, permitting that you should do
nothing for God, but for yourself only; becoming through the darkness of your lesser
self both dogmatic and suspicious.
11. Being made subject to anger and wrath and bitter words, wherein you do wound
yourself again and again upon the rocks of your own deception.
12. Mocking those who would grow in God through the offering up of such temporal
things as you would cleave to most dearly, striving through subtle words to turn
them away from sacrifice, to make them as yourself.
13. Hoping thereby to remove yourself from condemnation; for you know already that
in the sacrifice of the true believer is all your falseness made revealed, being
yourself exposed for all to see as some imposter who would pretend to do service
to God, yet in your heart would you serve yourself alone, to find some great advantage.
14. If then you would free yourself of every illusion, then be you wise and act
with firmness, being eager to take to your soul the joy of sacrifice; becoming in
your daily offerings like unto a good and loving mother, who for the love of her
family will gladly sacrifice even all she has, and this in joy.
4th Endowment 31:6-14
Know then that in the taking of a covenant do you join yourself to God, and this
by your own desire; for the covenant is the bridge which crosses o’er the chasm,
which chasm is the illusions of mortal life, opening up before your eyes the realness
of God and Heaven.
Thus in the taking of a covenant is God made a participant in your life, having set
aside through covenant, the scourge of unrighteous dominion, permitting that God
should act in your behalf, even as you, through covenant would act for God.
