FOREWORD
PEACE!As one of the dumb things of the earth, it was wonderful to enter this world under the darkness of War,Racism, Segregation, Discrimination and Oppression by some of the brutes of this Civilization--to matriculatethrough various segregated and integrated Educational Institutions beyond the Graduate Level, and to be trainedin Christianity as it was understood.The Spirit blessed me to become victorious in numerous arenas--the Business World, Sports World,Academic World, Military World and the Religious World.
 
After twenty five years of Christianity, the Spirit led me into twenty five years of in-depth study and practice of Buddhism, where I helped lead thousands into the Faith.Upon returning to an intense study of the teachings of Jesus the CHRIST, the Spirit led me to the MountainTop and introduced me to the Words, Deeds and Actions of the "DIVINE FATHER," FATHER DIVINE. Thenmy spiritual eyes were opened to the coming of the FATHER, Who had sent the Son!FATHER DIVINE'S Deeds and Actions are too stout to be denied! They have their impact on the world.However, many of small, limited minds of prejudice and ignorance, preconceived ideas and opinions in theguise of the press, writers, historians, et cetera, have tried to mislead the masses and cover light with darkness.They made a deliberate effort to belittle, discredit, distort, ridicule and flat out lie about the Greatest Work ever done for Mankind in this Civilization. Ultimately, these enemies of the people--thieves and robbers all--didnot and could not tell the Truth, for the Truth was not in them. However, the Law is strict. They shall get their  just rewards.All the world should know about the One Who Blessed the people, fed tens of millions of people during theGreat Depression--more than ten thousand per day in New York City alone--healed the sick, raised the dead,gave sight to the blind, and made the lame to walk!HE sacrificed His Body thirty two times to lynch mobs in the south-- once for each year that Jesus was onearth--to stop the lynching of Africans in America, and to Redeem the Nation with a New Birth of Freedomunder GOD. The Truth is eternally the Truth, yesterday, today and forever! Now one has come forth and taken up the challenge to shed light on and refute these agents of darkness whohave slandered FATHER DIVINE, to raise a Standard based on Righteousness, Justice and Truth. Mr. LaVereBelstrom has done a wonderful job in writing this book and has presented verifiable facts exposing those whocommitted intellectual and professional fraud. This book affords an opportunity for all to know the Truth,especially those who were victimized by the wicked ones.I have known Mr. Belstrom for about twelve years. He is a self denied individual with high qualificationsacademically and in real life practical experience, being a staunch advocate of True Americanism and theSpiritual Principles upon which America was founded. He is a devoted advocate of the American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with its Bill of Rights.In addition, Mr. Belstrom has spent more than fifty years studying and researching the Works andTeachings of FATHER DIVINE. And witnessed His work up close He has had substantial personal exposure toFATHER DIVINE and witnessed His Work up close.I pray that you read this book and be greatly Blessed!--Aaron Hermes Enaharo
INVOCATION
FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE on the sun deck at The Mount of the House of the Lord.
Dedicated toREVEREND MAJOR J. DIVINE, Ms. D., D.D.,Exponent of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST,
 
Better known as FATHER DIVINEAnd His Matchless, Virgin Bride,MRS. M. J. "SWEET ANGEL" DIVINE,Better known as MOTHER DIVINEFor Their consistent, untiring, Superhuman effortsover a period of many years,to lift Humanity out of the prison of mortalityinto living Glorious, Spiritual, Livesof Peace, Love, Joy and Tranquility asTrue Children of GOD!INTRODUCTION
To be sure, one of the delights of "dog-dom" must be snuffling the earth for a deposited bone, excavatingfor it, and at length clamping jaws on the mouth-watering tidbit and settling down to a blissful session of gnawing, and reflecting on the dividends of retrieving a treasure. No less, humans sometimes cache an object or an idea which was not appropriate for use at the moment, or which was thought to be no-account, only to disinter it later to find that they had buried a bonanza.The interest in FATHER DIVINE and the Peace Mission Movement that is currently surfacing illustratesthe point. Thousands of people--perhaps millions--have heard of FATHER DIVINE during the last hundred-oddyears, but were not ready at that time to acclaim HIM for some reason, or they discarded HIM as being of noconsequence.Presently, many of these people are experiencing the irradiation of rediscovering FATHER DIVINEthrough one avenue or another. Other people, especially the younger, who have not heard the Name of FATHER DIVINE, are discovering HIM with amazement and elation. This book will introduce FATHER DIVINE to the latter and flood the ken of the former with bright memories.This book has as its title
 Rediscovering GOD.
Perhaps the reader will be of the opinion that the author is being audacious and presumptuous in it. Nonetheless, on occasion, it is enlightening to view a venerableconcept with the intent to "rediscover" it by an unorthodox approach. Followers of FATHER DIVINE say positively that HE is GOD. Therefore, this work can be said to be written as a means of rediscovering FATHER DIVINE.This volume endeavors to assist the seeker in rediscovery, or discovery whichever, by leading the explorer through the dank welter of denigrating books and articles written on the Peace Mission Movement to thesunlight of the enlightened works, which dwell on the positiveness of mainly FATHER DIVINE'S sociologicaland religious posture. There has been a mass of writings of every description on the REVEREND M. J.DIVINE since the beginning of the twentieth century, and it has been uniformly negative with few exceptions.Much of this literature is acrid with bias as though there was a Hydra monster loose in the gloom of theland, each of its many venomous heads spewing a different poison. Most of the literature--if indeed it merits being called literature--disparages FATHER DIVINE mercilessly.In later years, maltreatment of FATHER DIVINE by early writers has been recognized by a fewinvestigators who are fair-minded and who readily give credit where it has been earned. William Kephartdecries disparagement of FATHER DIVINE. He writes that there are "Gross differences" between the reporting
