My dear brother H___, you proposed a strange mixture of questions,
and some of them have really made us laugh. But it is true; you
have also touched on some important and complicated topics. But
don't worry, we are going to clarify everything, as far as you may
grasp the answers.
A very interesting topic has been the closing of the Celestial
Heavens. Let's articulate first the problem, and then we will give
you the answer.
The messages delivered by Jesus and his Celestial co-workers speak
of the definitive closing of the Celestial Kingdom. As you know,
there are two ways between which humanity may choose, and that is
the way toward the natural paradise in the sixth spiritual sphere,
and the way toward the Celestial Heavens. It is necessary to opt
for one of those possibilities because there is none else. Here
the Father has restricted man's free will a little, but in a very
benevolent way, because both ways lead to a result full of happiness.
The first way leads through soul purification in its natural love,
and it ends with the perfect natural man, who has reached the pristine
state of soul through its purification, a condition which the first
parents enjoyed before their fall. It is a way of "returning"
to the lost paradise, of a return to the original creation, as God
had made it.
The other way, which we call superior, is of a very different character.
Each soul, each man, has the possibility to obtain God's Substance
in the form of His Divine Love through prayer, provided this prayer
originates from the longings of their souls. These prayers, on the
wings of the soul's longings, ascend toward the Father, who sends
His Holy Spirit, which conveys the Divine Love into the supplicant
soul in answer. Divine Love also purifies the soul, but even more,
it transforms it gradually from a human soul into a Divine soul.
When this process finishes, the soul has experienced what we call
the New Birth, because it is no longer a "human being"
in the strict meaning of the word, but a Divine being, with the
attributes of Divinity in Divine Love. Among these attributes there
is true Immortality. And only this Divine soul may enter the Celestial
spheres, the Kingdom of God, in order to enjoy an eternity of happiness
and progress. Souls without Divine Love are excluded.
This is, in a few words, Jesus' central teaching, which he preached
in Palestine, and which he continues teaching at the present time.
Another part of these teachings, as transmitted in the Padgett
messages, indicates that some day in the future, the Celestial Heavens,
the Kingdom of God, will close their gates, and all souls outside
will be excluded through all eternity. Nevermore will they have
the opportunity to enter, nevermore will they have even the opportunity
to obtain Divine Love. Or to take away the sharpness of this statement,
we may say at least that it is uncertain whether they will ever
regain this privilege or not, and so they should not rely on this
remote possibility. This day of definitive separation of "sheep
and goats" is also called the Day of Judgment, and there is
also the expression of the Second Death, because the excluded souls
will have definitely lost their option for true Immortality.
All this was presented consistently in the Padgett messages as a fact,
which would happen some day in the future, unknown even to Jesus,
according to the Father's decree.
Very well. You know all this already. But it is worth while repeating
it. And then, all at once you read the following
statement in a message:
It is a Gift. But do not think for a moment that God is
unkind or unjust. And be aware that should that day come, every
single one of His children will have made a choice, a conscious
choice. They will know what their relationship with God is. All
the blinders will be removed. They will know where they came from.
You need not worry; it's going to be a long, long time from
now, if it ever happens at all. That's for God to decide
What a surprise!, you thought. And now it is
not so sure anymore that the Celestial Heavens will close?
I will answer this very directly: The Celestial Heavens will
close. This is a fact and has been repeated over and over again
through different messages received by diverse mediums. I will explain
to you why the solution to this problem is not so simple as it may
seem at first glance.
You remember that there is a period of grace for those whose soulmates
live in the Celestial Heavens. They are granted certain time to
obtain Divine Love. You also remember that those souls who have
already obtained a small portion of God's Love will always have
the possibility to obtain more, through all eternity.
If you think it over, you can see that the Father has the facility
of selectively taking away the privilege of receiving His Substance.
This is why I cannot tell you whether there will be a specific day
when this privilege will be withdrawn from all souls lacking Divine
Love, or if this happens gradually, that is to say, if He withdraws
the privilege from certain souls, while other souls continue with
At times you thought that it was unjust that souls who lived on
earth 5000 years ago, have so much time to decide, and that other
souls, who incarnated a relatively short time ago, have to decide
more "quickly." I don't want to expand one more time upon
the term "just," but in fact we don't know if the Father
does grant the same term to each soul. But one thing is crystal
clear: Each soul will receive more than enough opportunities, and
no soul will be able to complain about an "unjust" treatment.
Besides, all these thoughts fail to consider that our Heavenly
Father is omniscient, that is to say, He can foresee the future,
and He knows exactly who will take advantage of the opportunity
and who won't do so.
It may be that some souls have already lost the privilege. As a
matter of fact, we don't know, and they don't know, but they had
not taken up the opportunity anyway. It is their free will choice.
After the definitive separation, each group of souls will follow
its own course. Those outside cannot visit us, and we, I am sure,
seeing that they don't want our help and that there is no great
attraction, which Divine Love constitutes, well, we won't leave
either to visit them. Two communities with different directions,
ours well known, theirs still uncertain. Two very different communities,
a community of human souls, and another one of Celestial angels,
who have already lost their human nature, and have become part of
Divinity. There will not even remain the nexus of belonging to the
same race or species, because this will no longer be the case.
We could say therefore that the great day of separation would happen
when the last soul with the privilege of receiving the Love of God
will have entered the Celestial Heavens. But the withdrawal of the
privilege itself from a certain group of souls may start much earlier.
Perhaps it has already begun, we don't know.
But all human beings that live on earth at this very moment don't
need to worry about this now. All, absolutely all, will find their
opportunity, and not only one, but multiple chances. It's up to
mortals and spirits to make good use of them. We will help, but
we can only help when we find the will and the disposition for receiving
help. In other words, it is necessary to ask for help.
That is why I always repeat this: Activate yourselves, ask! When
the Heavenly Father hears your prayers, He won't give you stones
or scorpions, as Jesus put it in his picturesque way of expressing
himself, but He will give you bread, the Bread of the Life, His
Own Substance. God gives Himself completely. Is it too much to ask
that you may also deliver yourselves?
Obtain this Love right now. It is the most precious Substance in
existence and it will bring light and warmth to your life. It will
give you a position of preference when passing over into the spirit
world, and the reward will not only be paradise, but True Heaven.
I believe it is not necessary to think this over.
You are sleepy now. It is time to say good-bye. I think the topic
of the closing of the Celestial Heavens is quite clear now, as clear
as we ourselves understand it. The Father will decide, and the Father
will disclose it.
Sleep now, and sleep in peace. I will watch over you, and Gods
blessings are upon you.
Good night, dear brother,
