"ALICE AND THE MAGIC GARDEN"
--MO December 4, 1972 No.290--GPCopyrighted February, 1974 by The Children of GodP.O. Box 31, WC2E 7LX, England or BP 752, 75123 Paris, Cedex 03, France(Sometime ago we were having a problem with a dissension in a certain Colony. On asking the Lord what was the cause,this is the amazing answer we received!--I know you'll enjoy and be edified by it:)1.
I THOUGHT, "LORD, WHERE ARE THEY GETTING THIS INSURRECTION?
What is causing it? Issomeone still stirring up the pot and the sedition? Is this one still actively promoting it?"--But the vision the Lord gave meshowed she was not. She had been doing her best to
stop
it, and the Lord showed me this clearly: Someone
else
was promoting it!2.
I AM SUCH A STUPID LITTLE IDIOT!--I'M NOT SMART LIKE YOU GUYS,
I'm dumb enough to think I'm still a Shepherd and I need to feed the sheep. I'm nothing but a little feed-lot boy. That's all I've ever been. I never wasan administrator. I don't think I'd ever make a good king.3.
I'M NOTHING BUT A CHANNEL, A PIPELINE, A PROPHET SPOUTING THE WORDS OF GOD.
And I am so simple minded, God has to give me messages in little fairy tales like a little tiny child! So I think I'm going tocall this "Alice and the Magic Garden"! I was asking the Lord what to do with these people causing the trouble whensuddenly I saw the following:4.
I SAW THIS HUGE BIG OLD ENGLISH ESTATE
like the former barons and lords lived in, the ones thatare now being abandoned because they can't get enough servants to run them. Over on the right was this gigantic manor house, bigger than Maidstone, a big huge place. There were fields in the distance like a farm.5.
'WAY OFF AS FAR AS MY EYE COULD SEE WAS THIS LONG WALL SURROUNDING IT
and itcircled around behind me. On my right behind me was this big, big gate like those old castle gates--maybe it had a moatoutside it. I was on the front lawn and there were quite a few small children playing around, young children, and there wasone little boy about six or seven in knee pants, a little red-headed freckled-faced kid.6.
IT WAS A BIG BARONIAL ESTATE OF HUNDREDS OF ACRES
and this big wall went clear around if for miles. To my right was this Playground and there were some little kids playing there. At first I didn't notice who they were, but then I saw that the little boy we shall call Johnny was there and the girl we shall call Alice and some of the office girls,mostly all very
little
boys and girls in this playground.7.
OUR ALICE WAS DANCING AROUND LOOKING VERY MUCH LIKE ALICE IN WONDERLAND,
about 12 or 13 years old, looking beautiful like a little Fairy Queen with a pretty bouffant skirt flying and her pretty long blond hair blowing and waving in the wind as she was dancing and singing and having a great time!8.
THEN THERE WAS THIS VERY HANDSOME BUT SINISTER EVIL-LOOKING SORCERER 
standing near the play ground. He seemed to be the director of Alice's little playground and was directing the fun andgames, etc. He was wearing one of these round flat black hats like the Spanish toreadors wear sometimes and a long black robe, very handsome but very evil. He may not
be
that evil, but in a sense he was evilly
used
in some ways because of whathe did.9.
I SENSED THAT ALICE WAS NOT TO BLAME
for what was happening
now,
 but in a way she was to blame for what
had
happened in the
past,
 because she started it. She danced out of the Play ground and stopped in front of this lovely little garden plot like a little spoiled child and looked on that little Garden plot with such envy and jealousy, asmuch as to say, "Huh! Why should
she
have this nice little garden!" She really coveted that Garden and was jealous of her little Sister whose garden it was.10.
IN THE GARDEN WERE GROWING ALL KINDS OF NICE LITTLE FLOWERS AND PLANTS,
tender little shoots just starting to grow and little tomato vines just beginning to grow up the strings. (Abrahim: "They are allkissed with the love of David!") It was a child's garden, and Little Sister had evidently taken real pride and care in growingit, even marking each plant with its name by sticking little signs around in the garden. But Little Sister was gone and thelittle plot was empty and nobody was taking care of it.
 
11.
NOW, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, LITTLE JOHNNY HAD BEEN HELPING LITTLE SISTER IN HER LITTLE GARDEN.
He kind of liked the Garden plot and had helped her weed it and dig in it. So when he saw Alice dowhat she did he didn't like it, 'cause he was proud of the garden, and most of all he wanted Alice to come back to thePlayground and play with him.12.
(MIND YOU, I HAD THIS VISION IN BROAD DAYLIGHT
and got so flipped out I hardly knew what Iwas doing! I kept getting more and more as I asked the Lord every little detail, and He'd keep showing me exactly who waswhere and what for, etc.) (Abrahim: "David is such a little child, God has to speak to him in fairy tales!")13.
ALICE SEEMED TO BE ONE OF THE OLDER CHILDREN,
 because all the rest of them seemed to bemuch smaller. Now it was her Little Sister's and Little Brother's Garden, but they had gone off and neglected it and wereworking with their Father in the fields off in the distance. They were plowing away out in the fields with a horse and an old-fashioned plow.14.
NOW ALICE HAD HER OWN PLAYGROUND
and she was helping to supervise it, but at the same timeshe was a little jealous of this Garden.15.
SO AS SHE WAS STANDING THERE IN FRONT OF THE GARDEN THIS HANDSOME EVIL-LOOKING SORCERER 
saw her looking jealously at the Garden and mischievously and impishly handed her this little package of seeds, as much as to say, "Here, would you like to play a little trick on your Little Sister and Little Brother?" Hedidn't actually say any words but his attitude was, "
there's
something you can
do
about it.--
You
can
fix
them!"16.
SO ALICE TOOK THE SEEDS THINKING, "AHA! I'LL PLAY A TRICK ON THEM!"
It was all sortof in fun--no real harm intended. So she began to sow the seeds like she was going to sow a few weeds as a trick. With areal little impish twinkle in her eye she began to dance through the Garden throwing the seeds out as she went, singing playfully and scattering the seeds. The seeds seemed magical, twinkling like little stars, or sparks as they floated to theground.17.
JOHNNY, THE LITTLE BOY IN KNEE PANTS, WAS STANDING ON THE EDGE OF THEPLAYGROUND CRYING
and wailing and weeping because she wouldn't play with him and because he thought she wastrying to hurt the Garden which it seemed he had been left to take care of but had neglected. So he was bawling his head off when all of a sudden his Mother came rushing out of the Big House and told him to hush up and stop his crying.--If his BigSister Alice didn't want to play with him, she didn't have to!18.
"GO BACK AND PLAY WITH THE OTHER LITTLE GIRLS
in the playground," she told him. But hewas so mad because his little Fairy Queen wouldn't play with him any more he was real sulky and mean and began to teaseand torment the other little girls and make them mad and hit them and make them cry, 'cause he really didn't want to playwith them.19.
HE JUST WANTED TO PLAY WITH THE FAIRY QUEEN,
so he was taking it out on the other little girls.So when the little girls began to cry, Mum came out of the house again and took him firmly by the hand, swatted him,scolded him and yanked him into the big Building, which seemed to be filled mostly with little boys.20.
WHEN I ASKED THE LORD WHAT THIS BIG HOUSE REPRESENTED, I SAW SCHOOL ROOMS,
and the children inside were in
school
. They were not
all
boys but
mostly
boys, and his Mum was the school marm and shespanked the little boy with a big thick ruler. Although it seemed to be a
home
and
family,
at the same time it was a school,and it seemed the main purpose of the building was a school, yet it seemed the whole Family lived there like in our colonies.21.
NOW THE GARDEN AND THE PLAYGROUND WERE ALL IN THE SAME YARD OF THESCHOOL.
(The kingdom of God is partly all three of these, and partly hard distant fields of labour.)22.
I BELIEVE THE GARDEN TYPIFIED THE HOME HEADQUARTERS COLONY
at the time, whichLittle Brother and Sister had pioneered, Alice and Johnny had been left to take care of it and keep an eye on it, but they hadsomewhat neglected it.23.
AFTER ALICE HAD SOWED THE SEED, SHE DANCED AWAY LAUGHING, "HA, HA, HA! I
fixedher garden! She's going to have a hard time in her Garden and a lot more work!"
 
24.
BUT PRETTY SOON ALICE DANCES BACK OVER TO THE GARDEN
and there she suddenly seessomething that
scares
her!--These little black ugly dark green shoots are beginning to sprout up all over the garden andthey're growing so fast that they wriggle just like worms, the most horrible looking sight! They were winding up the tomatovines and covering the tomatoes and smothering all the little tender green shoots and choking the flowers and destroying thegarden!25.
ALICE LOOKS AT THIS AND IS HORRIFIED,
'cause she hadn't intended to totally
destroy
the garden!So she jumps in and tries to hold the plants down to keep them from growing, but they just wriggle up right through her fingers and they even begin to crawl all over her! Nothing she can do can stop it! She had sown the seeds the evil Sorcerer gave her, and now she couldn't stop it!26.
NOW SHE BEGAN TO CRY AND TO STAMP ON THEM
and tried to hold them down, and she was reallysorry she had started it. The seeds of dissension and division and hatred towards Johnny and jealousy toward her LittleSister and Brother had started and couldn't be stopped!27.
PRETTY SOON THEY BEGAN TO GROW LIKE NOTHING YOU EVER SAW IN THIS WORLD,
sofast! They began to be huge vines or stalks and to go 'way up, up, up, up into the sky! As she looked in horror and her eyesfollowed the stalks up, up, up, suddenly she saw these big huge--ugly-looking--wicked giants climbing down the huge highstalks from the sky laughing, "Ha, Ha! Aha!--
Now
we've got a way to get into the Father's estate!" They were coming fromthe
sky,
like
spiritual
demons!28.
THIS THING HAD GONE FAR BEYOND ANYTHING SHE'D EVER INTENDED!
She'd only wantedto put her Little Sister and Little Brother down and everything they'd done and to show how badly they'd done it and what a
mess they'd
made, and
she
was the only one who'd done things
right.
29.
BUT NOW SHE WAS TERRIFIED AND SCREAMED FOR HELP,
and the Father and Brother and Sister came rushing in from the fields.30.
THEN SUDDENLY THERE WAS THIS HUGE HAND--
much bigger than any
man's
hand, supernaturally big--and I knew it was the Father's hand wielding this giant old-fashioned Axe with a big curved blade. It struck at theroots--slash, slash, slash! And it cut down the vines and cut them off right at the bases, and the most peculiar thinghappened: They immediately shriveled up, dried up, and curled right back up into the sky out of sight and the wicked giantswith them!31.
THEN THE FATHER AND THE LITTLE SISTER AND BROTHER GO BUSY DIGGING UP THEROOTS AND CHOPPING THEM OUT, AS THOUGH THE THINGS WERE STILL ALIVE AND IF THEYDIDN'T KILL THEM RIGHT AWAY THEY WOULD SPROUT AGAIN AND STILL LIVE. FAST ANDFURIOUSLY THEY DUG AT THEM, THROWING THEM ALL TOGETHER IN A PILE.
32.
THEN THE FATHER LOOKED AROUND FOR THE NEAREST, QUICKEST PLACE TO GET RIDOF THEM,
for some place to dump them and burn them, and the nearest place he could see was the Playground, the sandlot! So they quickly began hauling the stuff over there load by load and burning it quick in one big bonfire in thePlayground.33.
THE POOR LITTLE FAIRY QUEEN SEEMED ABSOLUTELY PARALYSED BY FRIGHT
over thewhole thing and just stood there watching in awe!34.
BUT I NOTICED THE SINISTER SORCERER HAD RETREATED
to the rear of the Playground aroundon the other side away from the action like he was afraid of what was happening and didn't like it, covering his face with his black cloak over his uplifted arm as though in fear. He was standing there glowering at what was happening, and verydispleased.--And all the little children were complaining because their Playground was being spoiled!--And that's where itstopped, that's all I saw
that
day.35.
BUT THIS MORNING I GOT THE REST OF THE STORY: I SAW THE SORCERER TURN ANDSLINK OUT THE FRONT GATE.
--They were spoiling all his games and all the fun and the play!36.
SO I LOOKED BACK AT THE PLAYGROUND,
and thought, "Oh, no! Look at that pile of rubbish!Burning all that seems to be a pretty severe judgement on these evil weeds! Surely it's bad enough to chop them up and root
