I am here, James I.
Life in this spirit world has opened my eyes, when previously they were shut. Monarchs like me could not understand that what they thought was a legitimate claim to divine right was often really just a mask for simple pride and, yes, conceit.
This became apparent to me when I observed my fate in spirit alongside other spirits who were my contemporaries. It did not escape me that some who were English cooks or of other humble professions, were often much happier than I was. The stark democracy of this hit me like a thunderbolt. And then, as I examined my inner life, I saw this pride, as it masqueraded as political legitimacy. Oh, how unhappy this realization made me!
My son has given a message tonight for your time, and I will do the same.
Do not doubt that God has the power to influence anyone He pleases, and when He determines to do so, He uses the free will of mortals and not a mere fiat, which He will not do.
One point to keep in mind is that it may work out differently from what you have expected. So just trust the Higher Power, and particularly the timing. You live in an unusually critical time, as the whole world knows, and thus, unusual measures are necessary.
So get to a great conviction that God can do literally anything, and that no matter how entrenched power is, it cannot stop a Creator who is determined to release His children from the bonds of oppression and injustice.
Good night, and may this greater faith sustain you as you seek to know what you can do to bring love and peace to the earth.
James VI and I (19 June 1566 – 27 March 1625) was King of Scots as James VI, and King of England and King of Ireland as James I. He ruled in Scotland as James VI from 24 July 1567, when he was only one year old, succeeding his mother Mary, Queen of Scots. Regents governed during his minority, which ended officially in 1578, though he did not gain full control of his government until 1581. On 24 March 1603, as James I, he succeeded the last Tudor monarch of England and Ireland, Elizabeth I, who died without issue. He then ruled England, Scotland and Ireland for 22 years, until his death at the age of 58.
James achieved most of his aims in Scotland but faced great difficulties in England, including the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 and repeated conflicts with the English Parliament. According to a tradition originating with historians of the mid-seventeenth-century, James’s taste for political absolutism, his financial irresponsibility, and his cultivation of unpopular favourites established the foundation for the English Civil War. Recent historians, however, have revised James’s reputation and treated him as a serious and thoughtful monarch. The 1611 Bible is known as the King James Version in the United States. In the United Kingdom, it is commonly known as the Authorized Version. King James did not literally translate the Bible but it was his advance authorization that was legally necessary for the Church of England to translate, publish and distribute the Bible in England. James and the Bishop of London wrote the brief that guided the translation, such as prohibiting the marginal notes found in the Geneva Bible and ensuring the position of the Church of England was recognised on various points. While the new Bible did replace the Bishops’ Bible in the Church of England, there is no extant documentation to suggest that the completed book was ever formally “authorized”. However, from 1662, the Epistle and Gospel texts in the Book of Common Prayer were taken from this Bible; and as such were “authorized” by Act of Parliament .(Source: Wikipedia)
