== Origins and use ==
Invocations offered by priests and priestesses of the sacred fire on [[Lemuria]] in this power of the spoken Word were originally given according to the science of the Logos. The perversion of this science in the practice of [[black magic]] occurred later, in the last days of Lemuria, bringing about the destruction of the temples of the Cosmic Virgin and the cataclysm that sank the continent. The Easter Island images are the remains, marking the site of the wars of the gods that shook the earth in those terrible days. By contrast, this science of the spoken Word was used in its pure form by the Israelites to fell the walls of Jericho. Today disciples use the power of the Word in decrees, affirmations, prayers, and mantras to draw the essence of the sacred fire from the [[I AM Presence]], the [[Christ Self]], and [[cosmic being]]s to channel God’s light into matrices of transmutation and transformation for constructive change in the planes of Matter.
The science of the spoken Word (together with that of the [[immaculate concept]]) is the essential and key ingredient in all [[alchemy]]. Without the Word spoken, there is no alchemy, no creation, no change or interchange in any part of Life. It is the alchemist’s white stone which, when successfully applied by the secrets of the heart flame, reveals the “new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” Blessed is he that overcometh the carnal mind’s opposition to the exercise—the practice that makes perfect—of the science of the spoken Word in the offering of daily dynamic decrees unto the Lord, for unto him shall the Holy Spirit “give to eat of the hidden manna.”<ref>Rev. 2:17.</ref>
