I am here, Jesus.
Yes, I am here in response to your request that I write you a sermon
for those people who may be interested in learning more about the Gospel
which I really preached when on earth - a Gospel designed to show man
the Way to Immortality through possession of the Father's Love through
prayer and the resultant transformation of man's soul from a human soul
to one possessed of the Essence of God and hence Divine.
Yes, that was my mission when I was on earth and that was the great message
which my Father in Heaven sent me to preach to the Jews and to all mankind,
and it is the message which I have been, and I am still, endeavoring to
bring to mankind over the long centuries from that time until the present,
so that the clouds which have appeared through human incomprehension of
my work and mission can be at last cleared away and mankind can see exactly
what I preached when I appeared on earth and what the exact Way is which
man can follow for his becoming at-one with the Father in His Divine Love
and Mercy, and thus enable him to achieve that immortality of soul which
he so much and so eagerly seeks and yet which seemingly evades his grasp
and his frustrated yearnings.
And in these sermons I wish to state that what I have written through
Mr. Padgett is correct and that the true and only Way to the Father and
His Love was explained in the messages which I and the many high spirits
associated with me in the writing of these messages were able to transmit
to mankind through him.
So that in this first sermon we come to the questions: Why is it that
the churches fail to turn man to the Father's Love, and what is necessary
for religious leaders to do to bring about the realization that God's
Love is available, and that it is the possession of His Love in the soul
of man that effects its transformation into a soul filled with His Essence
and possessed, and aware, of its immortality?
For I wish to show in this first sermon why it is important for mankind,
regardless of religious affiliations or background, to hearken unto the
voice of the Master and to obtain that immortality which God the Father
is eager to bestow upon whosoever shall turn to Him in Love and Prayer,
and which the trappings and misconceptions of the present churches make
so difficult and uncertain for the very congregations they serve and seek
to guide. For the churches of today, built as they are upon the speculations
of men who could not comprehend my message and who worked out false doctrines
based on the false notion of my deity as part of a supposed trinity, cannot
show the Way to the Father and His Love because they have no conception
of the Father and His Love that will lead man to seek and obtain that
Love and the subsequent transformation of the soul from the human to the
The churches of today cannot inspire man to seek
God's Love because they no longer understand, and they have not
for long centuries so understood it, that God's Love possessed by
the human soul through prayer to Him for its coming is the Way and
the only Way to man's salvation.
These churches emphasize the moral order of society very much as did
Moses when the conception of the Ten Commandments for man's conduct was
developed and brought into operation, and the moral order, as I have many
times explained, has merely the force of purifying man's human soul and
bringing it into harmony with God's Laws, but does not have the power
of bringing about the transformation of the soul, no matter how purified,
into a divine soul filled with God's Love and Mercy.
No obedience to any moral code, I repeat, nor, for that matter, any magical
effect of anyone's blood, whether he be in physical life or was at one
time a mortal and now a spirit, can cause the soul to be transformed into
a divine soul, for only God's Love conveyed into the human soul through
the Holy Spirit in response to earnest prayer can bring about such a transformation
- and no church as it is constituted today teaches that great fact - and
this is the real message which I taught as the appointed Messiah of God.
And it is for this reason, I must repeat, that the Way to the Father and
immortality lies not with the churches nor with their doctrine of moral
behavior or the efficacy of Jesus' blood or mere belief in my name or
in any religious concept which is now taught by the priests and pastors
of these same churches.
The Way to the Father, let me emphasize it again, is only as I taught
it on earth, as I explain it now, and as I have explained it in the messages
which I have written through Mr. Padgett. This sermon is clear in showing
that the churches do not possess the knowledge of bringing mankind into
At-Onement with the Father. That is why mankind must be given the True
Gospel and the Way shown to them. Religious leaders in the world today
must follow me in my teachings and carry on my work and awaken mankind
to this fundamental Truth: that we may all be One in God's Divine Love
through prayer, and this by all and every means now available that will
help bring the Word to all flesh. And it is through the teachings of the
Truth by you, my disciples and workers everywhere in this new age, that
my true church can and will flourish from henceforth on earth.
I think I have written enough on the cardinal points treated in this
sermon and I shall continue to write and show those interested that the
Truth is at last being given - first through the messages and now through
my Church of the New Birth, which shall teach the Way to the Father and
His Love as did Jesus the Messiah when he was an earth.
