Truth For All People
Messages from Jesus and Celestial Angels explaining the way to God and the salvation of the soul received through the greatest medium the world has ever seen, Mr. James E. Padgett who was chosen by Jesus to write down his second revelation of truths to the world.
Here are some excerpts from the messages.
Truth cannot compromise, even for the sake of peace, and error will not submit or acknowledge its untruth so long as it can get any mortal to believe in and advocate it.
And because of the great gift of free will to man, truth itself, with all the Power and Knowledge of the Father in back of it, will not compel a man to accept it against his will.
Prayer must be made to the Father in the name of Truth, and to His Love and Mercy. Every individual is dear to Him, and He is ready to bestow this Love upon everyone who asks in faith and pure desire. And in response to the earnest prayer will come Love; and with It, knowledge of things spiritual; and with this, power that may be used for the good of mankind.
Let not your desires originate from only the intellect, but try to bring the longings of the soul into being. And do not rest satisfied until a response shall come - as it will certainly come - and you will know that the Divine Love is present and working Its transforming power upon the soul.
God recognizes and respects the independent will of His creature. He does not force them to seek His Love, but waits until they, by their own experience, learn that what they once thought was all sufficient for their happiness, is not sufficient; and realizing this insufficiency, they become dissatisfied, and with such dissatisfaction comes the wish to learn the great unknown of desire, which, at last, causes them to feel their dependence upon a source of happiness not emanating from themselves.
I believe, if people knew what GOD was offering them, they would not hesitate to gladly, and in humility and thankfully, accept it.
The Divine Love of the Father and
the New Birth of the Soul
I am here, Jesus;
God is a God of Love, and no man can come to Him unless he receives the Love of the Father in his soul.
As men are inclined to sin and error and the violation of God's Laws, they can be redeemed from sin by obtaining this Love; and that can be obtained only through prayer, and faith in the willingness of God to bestow this Love upon whosoever may ask for It. I do not mean that there must be "formal" prayers, or compliance with any church creeds or dogmas.
The prayer that is efficacious is that which emanates from the soul and earnest aspirations of a man.
So let men know that unless they have the real soul longings for this Love, it will not be given to them. No mere intellectual desires will suffice. The intellect is not that faculty in man that unites him to God, only the soul is made in the likeness of the Father, and unless this likeness is perfected by a filling of the soul with the Divine Love of the Father, the likeness is never complete. Love is the One Great Thing in God's economy of real existence. Without it, all would be chaos and unhappiness; but where it exists harmony and happiness also exist. .....
How the Divine Love Enters the Soul of a
I am here, Jesus;
I have already explained to you the difference between and the respective functions of the physical body, the spiritual body and the soul, and how the real man is the soul, which may live forever.
I have also shown you how the physical and spiritual bodies change their component parts, and as such bodies, disintegrated and disappear in the form that they may have at any one time. Well, the soul is the man and may become the angel of God's kingdom. The soul may also become only the everlasting part of man in the spiritual kingdom, as contradistinguished from the celestial heavens.
The only way in which the soul may become an inhabitant of the celestial spheres, is by its obtaining of the divine love and thereby become a partaker of the divine nature of the Father, and this can be accomplished only by the inflowing of the divine love by means of the operation of the Holy Spirit, which is the instrumentality used by God to carry this love to the souls of men. This love never forces itself....
The Soul of Man
The Soul: What It Is and What It is Not
I am here, Jesus;
I come tonight to write my message on the soul, and will do so if we can establish the necessary rapport.
Well, the subject is of vast importance and difficult to explain, for there is nothing on earth known to man with which a comparison may be made. Generally, men cannot understand truth, or the nature of things, except by comparison with what they already know to exist, and whose qualities and characteristics they are acquainted with.
There is nothing in the material world that will afford a basis of comparison with the soul; hence it is difficult for men to comprehend the nature and qualities of the soul by the mere intellectual perceptions and reason. In order to understand the nature of this great creation, the soul, men must have something of a spiritual development, and the possession of what may be known as the soul perceptions.
Only soul can understand soul, and the soul that seeks to comprehend the nature of itself must be a live soul, with its faculties developed to a small degree, at least First, I will say that the human soul must be a creature of God, and not an Emanation from Him as a part of His Soul. And when men speak and teach that the human soul is a part of the Oversoul, they teach what is not true. This soul is merely a creature of the Father, just as are the other parts of man, such as the intellect, the spirit body, and the material body; and which, before its creation, had no existence.
