I am here, Jacob.
I come tonight to share a message about my life. But before I
must know that we all care for you and send you our best wishes
Well, to begin with, there is much in the Biblical account that
accurately reflects my life experiences on earth: my difficulties
brother Esau and with my uncle Laban, the several partners I had,
sorrow and joy with Joseph in my old age. It was a very dramatic
filled not only with difficulty and danger, but also with many fulfilling
experiences that confirmed, in my own mind, the protective Love
Creator. So that when I died, I felt an overwhelming peace and a
my Creator. I saw how He had blessed and protected me my whole life
and I was very grateful. I felt I had lived a fulfilled life and
to die. Of course, I had no idea really what awaited me, but felt,
general way, that I would be at peace.
I perceive that you would like to know more about me. Well, firstly,
share your beliefs, and I inhabit the Celestial Heavens. I understand
tug between Judaism and the beautiful religion of the Master - that
pride in being Jewish, on the one hand, and your universal approach
and the after-life, on the other. Well, there need be no conflict
between the two, since Judaism, at its best, teaches the way to
fulfillment, and can be a useful supplement in your journey toward
at-onement with God.
I did feel on earth that my life belonged to God: everything I
experienced supported this conviction. And when, at the end of my
was able to see my beloved son Joseph alive and not dead, and having
authority in Egypt unheard of for my family, it simply confirmed
upon experience of God taking my side and coming to me in ways I
understand and feel.
Of course, some things in the Bible were fabricated, such as my
with an angel; unless one interprets this as wrestling with myself.
though I trusted God, still there were times when my faith was sorely
tested. Being a mortal, I had my hands full with all manner of irritants
difficulties that placed obstacles in my path. But each time this
a way was found somehow out of these difficulties. And so, each
happened, my conviction about God was strengthened. And then, what
was the crowning blow, my belief that my beloved Joseph was dead,
into the ultimate vindication for me, my family, and my faith. So
can see that on my deathbed, I was sustained by this faith, and
knew in my
soul that I would continue to live, at peace with my Maker.
And I did continue to live. United with my father Isaac and my
Rebekah, and with my grandfather Abraham, along with many other
loved ones, I had ample cause for joy and celebration. As I became
to the spirit world, I had a transformation in many of my ways of
This life is so different from earth life in so many ways, and I
couldn't think the same way about so many things. I saw my earth
life in a
sharper focus, and discerned the cause and effect between that life
life as a spirit. Truly, I had fulfillment of soul, and the freedom
cares and worries that is the chief delight of many spirits who

Well, this is all for now. I am pleased with the way you received
message. Know that many future messages we will channel will be
interest to mortals.
