Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for Your Divine Love to come into my soul that
I may be raised in my soul condition to make rapport with Your ministering
angels. I want only the truth as You see appropriate to share with us to be
what comes through this rapport. I want to do Your Will and I pray for faith
in the Power of Your Love to help me accomplish this. I love You and I pray
for protection from the lower spirits that may wish to do harm. Amen.
I am here, my dear sister in Christ, and I am your brother, John the Apostle
of Jesus, and his true follower in the way to at-onement with the Soul of
God. I am most pleased that you have given us this opportunity to write you
in answer to your question of what percent of people who are not aware of
the Divine Love actually receive It. At the heart of this, of course, is the
question of what you may do to more effectively bring the truth to the
world, and so I will answer in the best way that I can - as the Divine Love
in my soul allows me to.
It is the truth that many souls who have no intellectual understanding of
the way to receive Divine Love have received It. When I say "many," and D__
asks "how many?" answer for him that it is more than he would think.
Percentages of souls would be difficult to estimate because this number
changes all the time, but I could safely say for D__'s benefit that not much
less than half of these populations of non-Christians have actually received
small portions of the Divine Love.
You may be surprised by this, because you are aware that once a soul has
received a portion of the Divine Love, it will in the spirit life eventually
seek to fulfill its longing, and if it is true that many will not seek the
Way to at-onement with God, how can this be so? Well, I will say that in the
great by-and-by, when the earth shall once again be the paradise that God
intended it to be, and the souls of His children are once again in that
state of purified natural love, the human soul will have less to "want" than
it does at this time. Realize also that many more souls have yet to be born
into their physical identity - a truth we are aware of here.
But what I wish to share more than "how many" souls receive the Divine Love
is "how" souls receive the Divine Love. The soul is aware of its
relationship to God. Prior to our birth, this real part of us is aware that
we were created by a benevolent God, complete with those attributes that
allow our perception of God. Upon incarnation into the material we then take
on the characteristics of our earthly parents, not just in physical
appearance, but in spiritual appearance as well. At that time we are
"assigned" guardians whose purpose it is to guide our spiritual lives in a
loving way, and I will say here that most every guardian is on the Celestial
path. These may be relatives or not, but because they possess the Divine
Love, they stand forth as the most qualified to lead a young soul to
knowledge of the truth that God does exist and that He Loves.
In this relationship between the newly-born soul and guide, a bond is formed
that is very difficult to break for it is integral to the still, small voice
of the soul's conscience, which amplifies the wisdom being shared by the
guardian. It takes the free will of the mortal child to break this rapport
and perhaps keep it severed through out its earth life.
Now, in the best case, the soul of the mortal has an angel on his or her
shoulder, and their conscience can steer them in the good direction. What
would happen, then, if the mortal confronts a difficult situation, where
there is much disappointment and unhappiness? The soul would aspire in some
way to be free of this negative situation, and the guardian spirit would be
there to guide that aspiration to God. This works because, at this time, the
earth life is not a predominantly happy one for most people; they are not
content in their natural love, but rather suffer for the lack of it. In such
times, the soul has only one way to turn, for it will not find solace in its
Now I will address how you as mortals may be more instrumental in bringing
the truth of the availability of God's Divine Love to the awareness of your
fellows on earth. The Divine Love is a force and influence that has no match
in the world or in the spirit heavens; it is the most powerful influence due
to its nature being of God. Through the human soul, the Divine Love, then,
is a formidable presence, one that will bring into effect the highest laws
Do not underestimate the power of this Love to change your life. Recognize
its presence as a thing of real existence that affects the material around
you. On a purely practical level, you all can attest to the truth that you
have much more harmony in your lives on a consistent basis than you did even
a few years ago. What has changed? Not just the way you look at your world,
but your very world, itself. If you can now extend the reality of this Love
into your efforts, whatever they may be, you must know that the effect of
this Love will be felt or perceived by others.
Anything done in love is perfect (enough). This is not a small statement of
truth. Perfect love reaps perfect results. So, my dear brothers and sisters,
however you say it, sing it, write it, build it, dream it - do so with love.
You will not be disappointed. Follow your hearts and make the changes you
want to - these are for the better because change is the Law, and so it must
be to keep up with the needs of the many generations of children being born
to a world that is different from the world of their parents.
Have faith in your goodness. Do not doubt the effectiveness of your love, in
all its forms. You are being guided, of this you can be sure. I love you and
express the love of the many Celestial friends who are ever protecting and
watchful over you. We love you, and we are with you to bring in the new
John the Apostle and partaker of God's Divine Love.
