What Is the Association of
Universal Philosophy?

"What is universal philosophy? How did an association begin?

Webster's dictionary defines universal as used or understood by all;
an entity(s) which can be in many places at the same time, throughout the universe.
Philos is loving, dear.
Sophy is skill, wisdom.

To "associate" is to connect or bring into relation;
to keep company; to unite, combine; to enter into union.
Association is...suggested by or connected with
something other than itself;
an organization of people with a common purpose
and having a formal structure.

The Association of Universal Philosophy is an association of God, by whatever name you may know the Creator -- the spiritual messengers of God He sends to prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah -- and people of all faiths, religions, beliefs, and colors, who choose to join with them and prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah within their hearts, and then give this gift to others in the same love it was given to them.

On April 3, 1970, spiritual messengers of God came to this earth -- to a town named Globe, Arizona, to enter into a man named Ray Elkins and speak. They called their coming, or gift, or knowledge the "spiritual philosophy of God." Soon they suggested the word, "association," be placed in front of it, and asked that a club or church be formed, saying "permanent records" of their messages "must be kept."

December 18, 1974, the spiritual messengers of God suggested the name be changed to, "the association of universal philosophy."

And so it was, the Association of Universal Philosophy came into being.
It is an association of all of this, in the fullest sense of the meaning.

"We give this knowledge so that man, all of man,
would know of the love of our Father,
and by knowing of the love our Father has to give,
of the tears our Father sheds, that all men of all religions
should come to our Father together in peace and love."

Spoken by spiritual messengers of God on July 15, 1970

"The spirit was left that it may flow through all mankind.
"We have come but for one purpose,
and that is the preparation for
the coming of the Messiah.
And we say unto you,
all of you,
open your door that we might enter,
and therefore,
there can be a place prepared
within each of you for his coming.

"But from a mother's womb, so shall he be born...."
Spoken by the spiritual messengers of God, December 29, 1972

"Let new birth come into you.
Let it be born in you. And each day as you arise,
let it become a new day and a new world.
And as you close your eyes at night,
thank the Lord that He has placed you at this time where you are,
in the time of the preparation of the coming of the Messiah....
"Let it (the Spirit) reach unto all religions of all faiths."

Spiritual messengers of God, December 8, 1978

"What Is the Destiny of This Organization?"

On December 2, 1977, a man asked this question of the spiritual messengers of God. "Aka,‘What is the destiny of this organization?'...‘And will the new Messiah use the organization to accomplish his purpose?'"

The messengers of God answered him through their instrument or prophet, Ray Elkins, who had given up his body and gone to God that they might speak: "The organization is only here but for one purpose, the preparation for the coming of the Messiah. And there will be those within the organization who shall walk with him. But all shall serve with him. And a thousand years of peace shall come upon the earth, and a new heaven and a new earth shall be born again."

Answering this man further, the spiritual messengers of God said, "You have asked within your mind, must you believe? And we say unto you, that decision must come from within yourself. But a man without the belief, and the tradition of belief, shall build rainbows in the sky.

Look into the order of all things upon your earth,
and then tell us there is no God.
Look into the order of your universe and galaxies,
and tell us there is no God
And look from where we have come.

"We are here but for one purpose, the preparation for the coming of the Messiah, no other. We are here to serve your needs," the spiritual messengers of God answered.

"We have done so. We have provided," they answered him, knowing the fullness of the love and blessings they had given him with God's permission -- and knowing his day-to-day thoughts as they had walked beside him, providing for his guidance and individual needs. "We did not strike a bargain with you; we stated in fact that which we would do, and have completed that task in full. We would say unto you, what is greed, and what is need?"

When the spiritual messengers of God speak, the thoughts from spirit so close to God seem to reach into in many minds and places throughout the world, as their words are spoken. A woman had a dream in the same month the spiritual messengers of God answered the question on the destiny of the organization.

She asked the spiritual messengers of God, April 21, 1978, "Could you explain a dream I had in December 1977..." about "working with Ray, especially with children?"

The spiritual messengers of God answered, "That which soul Ray is showing you is a scripture that shall come forth, and be blessed by the people.

"When you were prepared for death, he gave you life. When you were prepared to have nothing but yourself, he gave you the fulfillment.

"The scripture is the writing of the coming of the Messiah that shall be written, and is written, in the many religions across the land. But yet father, he has fed your mind that you shall enhance the knowledge in threefold."

Spoken by spiritual messengers of God, April 21, 1978

On August 5, 1977, the spiritual messengers of God said: "We are here for the preparation and the coming of the Messiah, that the mark [of the beast, see The Revelation] shall not be cast upon God's children. As we came forth, we came forth in five places, and the readings as you hear them now, and our voice was heard in five places upon your earth. Now we are able to reach into many mouths and bring forth that day of preparation.

"Our words, give them wings. And wherever you should say it in truth for the betterment of mankind, we shall travel and be there to serve you. For we do not sleep. For wherever you journey, the gift that you shall receive here shall go with you. And only the thought, and we shall be with you. But we are not great. We are but the messengers of your Father and ours, God.

"In your minds you say, 'Why then do you not speak of the one known as Jesus of Nazara, the first-begotten son?'

"And we say unto you, we speak of these things unto which you seek knowledge as we look unto your minds. We need not speak for him who shall come later, for he shall speak for himself, and you shall hear him. Our job is not to place words in his mouth, our job is the preparation for his coming.

"Glory be the name of the Lord; glory be the name of His children; and glory be the name of the Messiah."
Spoken August 5, 1977, by the spiritual messengers of God.

"We have come, not to change the Laws,
but to fulfill the prophecies of the same.
We have come not to change that
that was given within Moses' time.
We have come not to change that that was given unto Isaiah.
We have come not to change that that was given,
and the gift that was given, in the one known as Jesus.
But hark unto these words --
we have come for this time.

click on the star:

"We have come from those who should make their entry.
We have come from those who did say unto our Father,
'Send those who know You best to prepare a way for our coming,
that our Father's words should not be misinterpreted.'"

and a philosophy of God...."

June 9, 1970, spiritual messengers of God

The Association of Universal Philosophy (AUP) was created shortly after Aka, a council of spiritual messengers of God, began speaking through Ray Elkins in 1970 in a town that is appropriately named, Globe. The messengers of God prophesied and gave guidance and teachings from 1970 to 1989, and continue to guide, heal and teach. Their messages are for individuals and the world.

They speak through all time; they have prophesied through many, and are many. Their words are like those of the "sleeping prophet," Edgar Cayce, or prophecies of many faiths -- such as those translated from a messenger of God to Joseph Smith; spoken by Quetzalcoatl, the South American Indian prophet, and given in other North American Indian prophecies. Their words resemble those written in the laws and prophecies of the Jewish holy scriptures, the Tanakh, and in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible; and told by the archangel, Gabriel, to the prophet, Muhammad. Their teachings also are as the knowledge of the Buddha, or the enlightened ones. And they resemble ancient Egyptian writings on the resurrection and the God of one, and the Vedic hymns.

As spiritual messengers of God -- just as those who spoke through prophets before -- they often refer to earlier prophecies and scriptures. They say they have come, not to change the laws or prophecies, but to show man their fulfillment for this time. They have come "not to change that that was given" through Moses, or Isaiah, or Jesus, or Mohammed, or Buddha, but they "have come for this time." Their purpose is to prepare a way for the coming of the Messiah.

They suggested a group or church be formed, named the "Association of Universal Philosophy." Ray simply named the church building itself, "a church to God," and all faiths are welcome.

A newsletter is published bi-monthly, "Rays of Philosophy."


And several books of the spiritual messengers of God's teachings have been written -- (you can click on the covers to see what they're about):

A Rose without Thorns, The Psychic Light

and Parables for Today

There is also a book called The Book with Wings, which has a cherubim on its cover, holding an ankh, the sign of eternal life, and a great sword (mentioned in Genesis and The Revelation.) The wings of the cherubim were on the ark of the covenant given to Moses.

"Now is the time of the cherubim," the spiritual messengers of God messengers say.

"And the Lord, God, sayeth to thee these words:
‘HARK, FOR IN MY NAME I SHOULD GIVE FORTH A NEW
COVETH.'"

Spoken October 8, 1971

"Your question is that of the coming of the Messiah.
"And we should answer, first, in this manner.
Within your mind
is the name of the one known as Jesus
and that of the preparation for the entry of those who have reached the Christ state into this one.
As we have said before,
there are many who have reached the Christ state,
and through the combination of these shall be the new Messiah.

Spoken December 29, 1972, by the spiritual messengers of God

The spiritual messengers of God have come, not from one faith, but they are of many. And they come to many -- for they have come for all mankind.

"We are many.
We have come unto many throughout the time of times --
for where we dwell there is no time,
and where we dwell there is no form.
We came upon the earth,
this you should call of your home,
in the beginning."

Spoken December 9, 1972.

"In some places we have built whole universes,
in others, but small souls.
Yet all was mighty in the eyes of our Father.
For...we stand as close to our Father
as His eyes, His ears, and His heart;
yet, we do so in humble reverence of our holy Father."

Spoken by spiritual messengers of God, December 15, 1972.
