Matters of Substance: Spiritual Understanding & Health


Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 
Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not:

Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing:

Isaiah 35: 3, 4 (to:), 5, 6 (to:)

Consciousness constructs a better body when faith in matter has been conquered.
Correct material belief by spiritual understanding, and Spirit will form you anew.
