The Reappearance of the Christ - Chapter VII - Preparation for the Reappearance of the Christ
The fourth prerequisite must be the careful Presentation of the cause for which the financial support is required. People may have the courage to speak, but an intelligent presentation is of equal importance. The major point to be emphasized in the preparatory work for the return of Christ is the establishing of right human relations. This has already been started by men of goodwill all over the world, under their many names.

We come now to the fifth prerequisite: a vital and sure belief in humanity as a whole. There must be no pessimism as to the future of mankind or distress over the disappearance of the old order. "The good, the true and the beautiful" is on its way, and for it mankind is responsible, and not some outer divine intervention. Humanity is sound and rapidly awakening. We are passing through the stage where everything is being proclaimed from the housetops - as Christ stated would be the case - and as we listen to or read of the flood of filth, crime, and sensual pleasure or luxury buying, we are [180] apt to be discouraged; it is wise to remember that it is wholesome for all this to come to the surface and for us all to know about it. It is like the psychological cleansing of the subconscious to which individuals submit themselves; it presages the inauguration of a new and better day.

There is work to do and the men of goodwill, of spiritual instinct, and of truly Christian training must do it. They must inaugurate the era of the use of money for the spiritual Hierarchy, and carry that need into the realms of invocation. Invocation is the highest type of prayer there is, and a new form of divine appeal which a knowledge of meditation has now made possible.

There is naught to add in the way of an appeal for funds, courage or understanding. If the courage of the Christ, as He faces return to this physical, outer world, if the need of humanity for right human relations and the sacrificing work of the disciples of the Christ are not enough to fire you and to energize you and those whom you can reach, there is nothing that can be said which will be of any use.

We have considered the need of preparation for the coming of the Christ and some of the basic requirements which will arise as people brace themselves for the needed activity, including the raising of the necessary finances to carry forward the preparatory work. The individual worker has, first of all, to decide if his incentive and spiritual expectancy is adequate to the task ahead. Only that is of importance which provides a needed momentum for action, and only that worker will be equal to the task who has a vision of sufficient clarity to enable him to work with understanding and sincerity. He must discover that it is possible for him to play his part in the furthering of the divine Plan. The fact of Christ and the genuine [181] possibility of His reappearance must become important motivating factors in his consciousness. He looks around for those with whom he may work, and who have the same spiritual objectives as he has. In this way and in due time, he finds that there exists on Earth a well organized and integrated group to which can be given the name of the New Group of World Servers. He finds that they are everywhere, and are functioning in every country and in all the organized religious groups and all other groups, dedicated to the well-being of humanity and to preparing the way for the return of the Christ.

This is primarily a group which, while working on the outer plane of daily, physical living, yet preserves a close, inner, spiritual integration with the center of energy from which it can draw all that is needed for active, spiritual work. The group provides a field of service for all who are seeking service-expression; it also provides a rallying point for all who are willing to be tried out, and a place where their motives and persistence can be tested, prior to a steady unfoldment of spiritual opportunity. He is thus freed for ever enlarging areas of service.

The New Group of World Servers provides essentially a training ground and a field of experience for those who hope to grow in spiritual stature and to fit themselves to be the active, directed disciples of the Christ. The appearance of this group on Earth at this time is one of the indications of the success of the evolutionary process, as applied to humanity. This method of work - the use of human beings as agents to carry forward the work of salvation and of world uplift - was initiated by the Christ Himself; He worked with men very frequently through others, reaching humanity through the medium of His twelve Apostles, regarding Paul as substituting for Judas Iscariot. The Buddha tried the same system but the [182] relation of His group was, in the first instance, to Him and not so much to the world of men. Christ sent His Apostles out into the world to feed the sheep, to seek, to guide and to become "fishers of men." The relation of the disciples of the Christ was only secondarily to their Master but primarily to a demanding world; that attitude still controls the Hierarchy, yet with no loss of devotion to the Christ. What the Buddha had instituted symbolically and in embryo became factual and existent under the demands of the Piscean Age.

In the age into which we are now emerging, the Aquarian Age, this mode of group work will reach a very high point of development, and the world will be saved and reconstructed by groups far more than by individuals. In the past we have had world saviors - Sons of God Who have given to men a message which brought an increase of light to the people. Now, in the fullness of time, and through the processes of evolution, there is emerging a group who will bring salvation to the world and who (embodying groups ideas and emphasizing the true meaning of the Church of Christ) will so stimulate and energize the minds and souls of men that the new age will be ushered in by an outpouring of the Love, Knowledge and Harmony of God Himself, as well as by the reappearance of the Christ in Whom all these three faculties of divinity will be embodied.
