I am here, Jesus.
I was with you today and I heard you declare your belief in me
and my being the Jesus of the Bible; and while it did not have much
impression on the hearers, yet it will cause them to think, and
possibly lead them to a realization that I am the true Jesus and
that my teachings which you will receive are the teachings of truth.
I was much pleased that you declared yourself so emphatically and
earnestly, and that your faith in me is so fixed and certain.
You have advanced yourself in the way of your spiritual development
by such positive assertion of your belief, and you will find that
your faith will increase and you will progress in your development
I will now be able to communicate with you more satisfactorily
than before, for the mere fact of declaring your belief in such
a way, and the knowledge that those to whom you spoke who do not
believe that I am other than God, and a part of God, will help you
beyond what you may conceive.
You are now much more in rapport with me than ever, and you will
soon realize that you are very near the Kingdom of the Father.
The discourse on forgiveness made a deep impression on the father,
and he will commence to think that his belief in the church dogmas
and creeds does not satisfy the longings of his soul, as they have
Be my true disciple under all circumstances, and your reward will
be great, both here and hereafter.
I will come to you soon and finish my last discourse, and when
completed, you will see that the truths which I shall declare are
truths that will show man that the Love of the Father is the one
all-sufficient means to His Kingdom and favor. Be true to me and
to yourself, and you will be one
of the overcomers who will inherit the eternal Kingdom of the
Holy Home of redeemed spirits.
You will not only feel the great benefit yourself of this great
truth of the New Birth, but you will lead many others to embrace
the truth and receive the benefits of the Father which He has prepared
for all who may love Him and receive His Love.
So my dear brother and disciple, let your efforts continue to learn
these truths, and teach others the way of my truths and their own
I will be with you very often, for on you I depend to receive and
spread my Gospel of Truth; and when you have done this, mankind
will turn from their condition of formal religion and embrace the
true and only way to their salvation. A new church will arise, and
the Love of the Father waiting to be bestowed on all men will be
the foundationstone of its establishment.
I know that you will have disappointments and trials in doing this
work, but only be faithful and steadfast, and the great object of
my teachings will be accomplished on earth, as in Heaven.
I must not write more now, but I want to assure you that your action
today is of more significance than you realize, and you will soon
see the importance of what you declared in the presence of those
who doubt the truth of your declarations.
So with my love and assurance of tender care, and the blessings
of the Father, I am
Your own loving and true brother,
