I am here, Jesus.
Well, you must have more faith, and pray more. These are the important
things, and the next is, that you must call on me when you get despondent
and need consolation, for I will respond and help you. And then
you must let that dear wife of yours come to you with her love and
cheer. She is a beautiful spirit and loves you beyond any conception
that you may have and you must love her.
Yes, I do love you more than you can comprehend and you must return
my love and be at one with me.
I pray with you every night when you ask me to, as you do, and
I know that the Father will answer my prayers as well as yours.
I know what I say and you must believe me.
So let me have your questions no matter what they will be and I
will answer before you ask them.
I was never in India and Greece and those other places studying
the philosophies of the Greek and Indian philosophers. I never received
my knowledge from any other than my Father in my communications
with Him and from the teachings of the Jewish Scriptures. I lived
at home in Nazareth with my parents all the years of my life after
my return from Egypt until I started on my public ministry. Neither
John nor Paul ever communicated that I was in these foreign countries
studying the philosophies of the teachers they name. John never
traveled with me outside of Palestine, and Paul, I never saw while
John was a man of very affectionate nature and was with me a great
deal during my ministry, but he was not what was called a learned
man nor was he acquainted with the philosophies of the men mentioned.
He was merely the son of a lowly fisherman, and was selected by
me for one of my disciples because of his susceptibility to my teachings
and the great possibility for developing the love principle. So
you must not believe the statements contained in that book on this
Well you must stop, but remember that I am with you and love you.
Your friend and brother,
