I am here, Jesus.
I was with you tonight at the meeting of the Christians and I saw
that you were thinking of several things that I had written and
wanted to tell the preacher of my truths. But of course you could
not. He took a bit from the Bible which I am credited with having
uttered and I did, but I did not mean exactly what he explained
it to mean when I said "he that liveth and believeth on
me shall never die" I meant that the man whose soul was
not dead in sin and believed in the truths that I had disclosed,
that is that God's Divine Love was waiting to enter into and fill
his soul with its essence and substance and that man by prayer and
faith received that Divine Love, he should never die. That is he
would become immortal as God is immortal.
No mere belief in me as Jesus the man or as the son of God is sufficient
to give a man eternal life for while he must believe that I was
sent by the Father to proclaim the great truth that He had again
bestowed on man, the possibility of obtaining this Divine Love by
his prayers and faith, yet unless he believed this and became the
possessor of this Divine Love, he could never claim eternal life.
I wish that the preacher would pay more attention to the truths
which I taught, that is, those truths which showed men the Fathers
Love waiting to be bestowed and the way to obtain it, than to my
I, Jesus as the son of man or of God, do not save any man from
his sins and make him at-one with the Father, but the truths which
I taught and which were taught me by the Father are the things that
I know that the preachers attempt to explain these things by the
light of the Bible as they understand that light, but so often it
is so obscured that instead of preaching from light they preach
For these reasons among others, I am so anxious to declare to you
my teachings of these truths that the world may know what truth
is, and what the individual must do in order to attain eternal life
I know that you are anxious to do this work, and that your soul
is trying for the inflowing of this Great Love and the enjoyment
of a close communion with the Father. So keep up your courage and
trust in the Father, and the end of your worries will soon cease.
I will try with all my power to bring about this opportunity for
your receiving my messages and believe that very soon I will succeed.
So believe in my love and my desire for your success.
Your brother in Christ,
