Jones: Say. (Hums) Mmmm. (Speaks) Yes? Yes? But to please reverence, perhaps you need to- to hear. Sometimes I think you need to hear what I hear. (Pause) Clasp your hands. (Pause) Then you’d know just a little bit maybe, of what I have to deal with. (Pause) Spirit that is speaking to me, I energize you. I give you energy now, to speak with a audible voice what I’m hearing in my ear. As you spoke in the original- to Paul, a voice came. As you appeared upon the Mount of Transfiguration, I say, Spirit, that’s in that lost world, speak with an audible voice (Reference to Matthew 17, esp. Matthew 17:1-2, “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.”). (Pause)
Jones: Louder, my dear.
Jones: Louder. Louder.
Distant singing, approaching
Crowd: Stirs, scattered applause.
Jones: (To congregation) You can open your eyes.
Jones: (To spirit) You’re speaking in Russian. You’re saying, forgive me. Be not angry. I forgive you. S- You’re in America in this incarnation. We’re in America. Speak English.
Jones: Help me.
Jones: Lenin? Yes. I understand.
Jones: Look around, if you wish. Have mercy. Just reverence. Have mercy. You’re abetrayer of mine. You betrayed me.
Jones: When did you betray me?
Jones: In Galilee?
Jones: I’m not sure it was distinguishable to them, but you’re saying you betrayed me in 1917?
Jones: Yes. What do you wish me to do for you, child?
Jones: You need a body.
Jones: Clasp your hands. (Pause) As it was on the day when I gave a double portion of the Elisha spirit, a part of the spirit, there’s someone here that this soul belongs to (2 Kings 2:9-10, “And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.”). You’re not integrated, and that’s why you’re having trouble in your mind. I’ll not call you out. Close your eyes now, I ask you. (Pause) I speak the word, and perhaps when it comes- that spirit comes out of the ether plain, and comes into its body and integrates, there will be no doubt some gasping. So be very quiet. As I, Lenin, Jesus, Buddha, the Baab, God Almighty, (claps hands once) I free that spirit from the loneliness of that nether world and integrate it in its body here.
One voice: Hallelujah.
Linda Swaney: (Screams)
Jones: It’s integrated. You may be seated.
Crowd: Stirs. Scattered calls of “Thank you.”
