I am here, Jesus.
Be of good cheer for I am with you always. Do not let your heart
fear, for the Lord is your keeper and He will be your guide and
shield. Only believe and trust in Him and you will soon be born
again into the spiritual world of His Kingdom. Let me teach you
and give you the thoughts that He gave me while on earth. Let me
show you that the things of this world are not the things that save
the soul from sin and unhappiness. Be a true follower of your God.
Question: what does it mean to be "born again?"
It is the flowing of the Holy Spirit into the soul
of a man and the disappearing of all that tended to keep it in a
condition of sin and error. It is not the workings of the man's
own will but the Grace of God. It is the Love of God that passes
all understanding. You will soon experience the change, and then
you will be a happy man and fit to lead others to the truths of
God. Let your heart be open to the knockings of the Spirit, and
keep your mind free from thoughts of sin. Be a man who loves his
God and his fellow man. Your love is only now of the earthly kind,
but it will soon be of the things spiritual.
You must not let the cares of this world keep you from God. Let
His Spirit come into your soul. Your will is the thing that determines
whether you will become a child of God or not. Unless you are willing
to let the Holy Spirit enter into your heart, it will not do so.
Only the voluntary submission to or acceptance of the Holy Spirit
will make the change.
I was the instrument in God's hands of leading men to His favor
and Love. When I said "I
am the Way, the Truth and the Life," I meant that through
my teachings and example men should be able to find God. I was not
God and never claimed to be. The worship of me as a God is blasphemous
and I did not teach it. I am a son of God as you are. Do not let
the teachings of men lead you to worship me as a God. I am not.
The trinity is a mistake of the writers of the bible. There is no
trinity - only one God, the Father. He is one and alone. I am His
teacher of truth, the Holy Spirit is His messenger and dispenser
of Love to mankind. We are only His instruments in bringing man
to a union with Him. I am not the equal of my Father - He is the
only true God. I came from the spirit world to earth and took the
form of man, but I did not become a God - only the son of my Father.
You also lived as a spirit in that kingdom, and took the form of
man merely as a son of your Father. You are the same as I am, except
as to spiritual development, and you may become as greatly developed
Question: Why were you called God's only son
in the Bible?
When on earth, I was the only son who had, until then, become vested
with the Divine Love of God to the extent of being wholly free from
sin and error. My life was not a life of earthly pleasure or sin,
but was given wholly to my Father's work. I was His only son in
that light. He was my Father as I knew Him to be. He is not a spirit
of form like myself or yourself.
I was born as you were born. I was the son of Mary and Joseph,
and not born of the Holy Spirit as it is written in the Bible. I
was only a human being as regards my birth and physical existence.
The account in the New Testament is not true, and was written by
those who knew not what they wrote. They have done the cause of
God's truths much injury. Let not your belief in that error keep
you from seeing that my teachings are the truth.
Be only a believer of God and His truths and you
will soon be in the Kingdom.
You will soon be able to understand as I understand.

he comments on the likelyhood that this communication is not exactly
what Jesus would have said.
