Received by James Padgett
I am here, Jesus.
Well I am so glad that you are so longing for this Love and I will
tell you that the Father loves you with all His Divine nature, and
is helping you to receive this Love into your soul, and you will
soon receive it in such abundance that you will find yourself happy
beyond all conception. And I love you too with all my heart and
soul, and am very near you and try to make you feel my presence
and influence. Rest assured that I am with you in all my love and
tenderness and that you are the special object of my care and keeping.
I wish that you could see me as I write this for I am filled with
so much love for you, that I know, if you could see the glory of
the Father displayed you would never again doubt my love. Oh, my
brother, only try to get this Love by prayer and faith in such a
way that it will become as real to you as anything which your natural
senses show you to exist in the physical world.
It is more real than anything in all nature, and you have in you
the possibilities of realizing that it is an existing thing, and
is yours, if you will only pray and believe*. I am with you in prayer
at night , and with all my love and faith I ask the Father to bless
you and make you a true partaker of His Love and mercy, and to give
you the assurance that you will receive and know that you have it.
My dear brother I must stop now, but your longings tonight have
been so great and so earnest that I could not stop without telling
you what I have. And remember this that I, Jesus, with all the knowledge
and authority that I possess, tell you that the Love of the Father
shall be yours, and you will become a most happy man, and a power
on earth in things spiritual and which pertain to the Father's business.
So believe me and trust the Father, and you will not be forsaken
or left alone, but will be surrounded by a host of witnessing angels
that you are the chosen child of the Father, and the object of His
Great Love and blessings.
I will not write more now, but I will say, that I love you as a
true brother and friend, and even as a closer one to you; and you
must believe, and yours will be the happiness that few on earth
So with all the great love that is mine I will
say good night and God bless you.
Your friend and brother,
* Mr. Padgett told me that when he as praying
just before retiring at night, he sometimes saw Jesus alongside
praying with him.
