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.
Belief and Faith are not the same; one is of the mind, the other of the soul. One can and does change as phenomena and apparent facts change; the other, when truly possessed, never changes. For faith possessed by a soul causes all the longings and aspirations of that soul to become things of real existence; which, like the house that is built upon the solid rock, can never be shaken or destroyed.
What this Divine Love means to everyone who has received it. He is in a condition of perfect peace and his happiness is beyond all comparison, and he is not willing that anything or power shall lead him to those things that are not in accord with the divine love and God's laws of harmony. He is not only happy, but is away beyond the lower spirits in intellectual development and knowledge of the spiritual things of the Father.
No man can of himself become filled with this Divine Love, for in only one way will it come into his soul, and that is by prayer to the Father for its inflowing, and faith that He will give it to him who asks earnestly and humbly.
It is not a question of what church you belong to, or what particular faith you may have, or who your preacher may be, or to what duties you owe to the church, or to the ceremony of baptism according to the church's dogmas, but whether you have sought God in spirit and in truth, and have received His favor and Love.
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.
