I had hoped to avoid public comment on this issue. Because, whatever
I say, it is obviously my personal opinion. However now that there
is so much speculation on the Internet, because AJ, as he is known,
is receiving a lot of publicity, I cannot really avoid some comment.
Particularly since this web site that I created, is considered by
many to be the most comprehensive of all the many Divine Love sites.
In December 2004, AJ posted for the very first time on the Divine
Love Message board, and explained that he was one of 14 who had
reincarnated (apostles plus soul mates), to teach the world of the
Padgett Messages before the heavens closed. I believe the date he
stated was 2012, but more recently I hear AJ has moved the date
out. There were a number of obvious objections to this claim:
- That the Padgett Messages deny reincarnation
is possible, and the most recent messages from Jesus on this
very subject was received March
10th, 1955 and again on January
- AJ was born, as far as I know on 10th March 1963, after one
of these communications and before the other, indicating something
is strange, because "our" Jesus did not mention being
on earth at that time, particularly since he was stating reincarnation
- We have continued to receive communications from Jesus through
all this time, and he has been a regular visitor to the annual
retreats held by followers of the Padgett Messages.
- While the Padgett Messages support the notion that the Celestial
Heavens will close, communications have suggested (long before
AJ made this claim in 2004) that we do not need to worry about
this event. It is not imminent.
- We have never received any communications from any Celestial
to tell us that Jesus had returned, and we certainly would have
expected that well in advance of his arrival. We have been receiving
messages from Celestials including Jesus since 1914 (James Padgett
died in 1923), and there have been many different mediums over
this long period of time. Lots and lots of opportunity to hear
some really good news.
- We have received communications about AJ which are not supportive
of his claims but as of this time have not made them public, not
wishing to enter into a "message war".
I myself have a number of other objections, based on things I hold
to be true, which are not covered
in the Padgett Messages, so I will not touch on them here. A.J.
has his answers to these objections, namely that all messages received
from pretty much all celestials since the time of Padgett (1923)
have been impostors. However he does support the recent messages
received via Judas, (2001 to 2003) possibly
because they do not address the issue of reincarnation. However
Judas had every opportunity to suggest Jesus was on Earth, yet he
never did so, the more so since the bulk of Judas' communications
were details about the life of Jesus 2000 years
ago. His messages concluded in 2003. Added to which Judas himself
told us the closing of the Celestial Heavens is not imminent, in
Naturally we have asked for advice from the celestials we have
been in touch with all these years. The answer we get is that AJ
is not Jesus of Nazareth reincarnated. It would be fair to point
out that AJ has now a body of messages that his followers have received,
that support his claim. However it is also fair for us to point
out that the Mary Magdalene (Mary Luck) currently with AJ, is not
the first, nor the second, but the third Mary Magdalene he has chosen.
Of the balance of the 14 that he claimed had reincarnated with him,
only three that I am aware of still believe in AJ. Some of them
strangely never did. One is dead, murdered by a lover. In 2004,
when AJ first made the claim, the notion of 14 people (Jesus plus
six apostles plus their partners/soulmates) all in sync and teaching
that they are returned apostles plus the Master was a powerful argument.
Today it is hollow. Other than the current Mary, who is not even
the Mary that was "chosen" or "identified" by
AJ as his soulmate in 2004, none seem willing to stand and be counted
alongside AJ. And he has added some new "apostles" and
left off some he named in 2004, who one presumes, have not been
You may be sure that I personally would like nothing better than
to be able to announce that AJ is who he says he is. Thus the burden
of proof is heavy. And I am satisfied that I have discerned the
truth. You will have to do the same.
You can argue that, provided AJ does not stray from what is contained
within the Padgett Messages, surely he is at least teaching the
Truth? And I would agree with you, that would be the case, if he
sticks to the content of the Padgett Messages. However it seems
that he teaches a number of concepts alien to the Padgett Messages.
If you choose to follow AJ, it would probably be best to test the
Truth of his teachings, rather than accept them because you believe
he is Jesus. Which, when you think about it, is how it was 2000
years ago. And, as best I have been able to determine, AJ is teaching
a significant number of variations on what is found in the Padgett
Messages. These are primarily in the area of the role of emotions
in blocking Divine Love, the function of the Law of Attraction (but
even that is not the LOA found in Padgett,
but the Law of Desire), soulmates and even the nature of divinity
as it relates to a soul that has been reborn of spirit. He has a
very significant problem explaining why he is not perfect, since
Jesus clearly was 2,000 years ago. He also denies that healing is
relevant, and he personally makes no attempts to heal in spite of
the Jesus 2000 years ago being a regular healer. He indicates that
an individual requiring healing has brought this upon themselves,
and cannot avoid the real problem by obtaining a healing that he
maintains will only be temporary. Having personally sent healing
to brain damaged folks who were beaten close to death, I find this
attitude totally without love. And if Father is willing to send
this healing energy to needy folks, who is AJ to complain?
The issue of the emotions blocking the receipt of Divine Love is
curious, given that it was channeled in 1918 that
the Law of Compensation is subordinate to the Law of Divine Love,
meaning that any errors you have acquired in life, do not need to
be compensated for before you can receive Divine Love. Yet in effect
this is what AJ teaches.
One issue however deserves further comment. It is curious that
AJ's determination to focus on "Emotional Clearing" as
a technique to advance spiritually, has the direct effect of reducing
his focus on pure soul transformation through Divine Love - achieving
the New Birth. That is because one cannot focus on two things, and
he has chosen to direct his energies into a natural love path technique,
in a belief that this will assist the Divine Love soul progress.
Recent communication from celestials has confirmed this to be an
error. This is discussed in more
detail here. While progress in the development of natural love
is a wonderful thing, it in no way contributes to one's soul transformation
via Divine Love.
While I personally do not care too much what A.J. does or believes,
I think the real danger lies in the fact (to me at least) that the
basis of his fundamental teachings on Divine Love are both provable,
and largely unknown. This is the fact that each of us can physically
feel the Divine Love in our souls, if we make the right effort.
However, as best I can determine, AJ's explanation of what Divine
Love physically feels like is not in accord with 100 years of experience
by others. And in spite of his now having spent eight years sharing
his "better way", there is scant evidence of that. There
is only one way - sincere regular devout prayer to Father asking
for the inflowing of His Love.
As I am based in NSW, Australia, any follower of AJ who would like
to talk about things on the phone, is most welcome to contact
me through the form, and I will be most happy to oblige. But
do use the prayer referred
to above, as that will help. Again its curious that it seems AJ
does not make a habit of using this prayer during his public appearances,
because we certainly do. Nor does he suggest that folks spend time
in silent prayer, which also is very effective. And, to add to our
concerns, in a public seminar held in London on the 21st January
2012, AJ said he personally had not experienced the Divine Love
for a year. What? The "master teacher" can't feel the
Love? He also defined what he believes is experienced as Divine
Love, and his explanation does not align with those who have walked
this path the last 100 years. His explanation is that it is experienced
as "overwhelming emotions and crying." Nothing
there about "the peace
that knows no understanding".
