Ascended Master James Cash Penney


In 1898, James Cash Penney began working for a small chain of stores in the western United States called the Golden Rule stores. In 1902, owners Guy Johnson and Thomas Callahan, impressed by his work ethic and salesmanship, offered him one-third partnership in a new store he would open. Penney invested $2,000 and moved to Kemmerer, Wyoming, to open a store there. He participated in opening two more stores, and when Callahan and Johnson dissolved their partnership in 1907 he purchased full interest in all three stores. By 1929, he had grown JC Penney stores to 1,400 locations.

However, in the stock market crash of 1929, he lost everything and was ruined. This took a serious toll on his health, and he checked himself into the Battle Creek Sanitarium, where he was treated. After hearing the hymn "God Will Take Care of You" (written by Civilla Durfee Martin) being sung at a service in the hospital's chapel, Penney underwent a spiritual awakening. He pressed on and even after relinquishing daily management of his company, he fought to stay involved. During the 1930s and 1940s, Penney devoted himself to a variety of charitable works and became involved in many civic organizations. To support youth interests in farming, he became a major benefactor of the National 4H Clubs. After rebuilding his fortune in the mid 1950s, Penney established the James C. Penney Foundation in 1954, which remains active today, supporting organizations addressing issues of community renewal, the environment, and world peace.

In 1931, Harper published the first edition of His Autobiography: J. C. Penney: The Man with a Thousand Partners. In 1950, J.C. Penney released the book Fifty Years with the Golden Rule.

Penney was deeply interested in the heavier spiritual values of life, and was a member of the Scottish Rite Masons. He completed His Masonic Resurrection Ritual in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 2, 1911, and was awarded the rank of 33rd Degree Mason on October 16, 1945. On December 26, 1970, Mr. Penney fell and fractured a hip. After weeks of recuperation, he died as the result of a heart attack on February 12, 1971 at the age of 95.

Mark Prophet, in one of his recorded lectures, announced that J. C. Penney attained his Ascension.
