If you seek earnestly for God's grace and Divine Love,
you can obtain them on earth, and when they are obtained on earth,
greater will be the progress of the spirit when it comes over to the spirit world.
The soul was made the highest and most perfect of all God's Creation,
and to such an extent that it was made in His image - the only one or thing
of all His creations that was made in His image, and the only part of man
that was made in His image.
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.
Whenever the human soul partakes of the Essence of the Father, and thereby
becomes Divine itself, and the possessor of His Substance of Love, that soul
realizes to a certainty that it is Immortal and can never again become less than
Immortal. As God is Immortal, the soul that has been transformed into the
Substance of the Father becomes Immortal. And never again can the
decree, "dying thou shalt die," be pronounced upon it.
He is more thoughtful and careful of His children than is the earthly father,
and His angels are always ready to do His bidding. So have faith, and pray,
and pray and you will realize the wonderful responses that will come to you.
If mortals would only understand that as regards to eternity, the soul is the great thing which they possess, and should be given more care and development than any and all other parts of man's being. TGRABJ Vol 1 - page 156
