This is an excerpt of a message Jesus wrote through Mr. Padgett on March 3, 1918:
I desire tonight to write to you in reference to the way in which, as the preacher advises, "Christ may be in you." I know that it is almost universal among preachers of the orthodox church to teach their hearers that the way to salvation is to get Christ in them, and thereby they will be enabled to come into unity with the Father, and will cease to remain subject to the effects of sin and evil. Well, this teaching is the true foundation of salvation for the Celestial Heavens, provided it be understood by the preachers and the people what the true meaning of "Christ in you" is. Unless this meaning is comprehended, the fact that preacher or people may believe that they have Christ in them will not work the results that they may suppose or desire.
Many, and I may say the most, of these professing Christians have ideas of what this expression means in activated terms, that are not in accord with the true meaning of this condition of the soul. They believe that all that is necessary is to believe on Jesus as their savior by his sacrifice and death; that in so believing, they have Christ in them, and that nothing else is required. They have no conception of the distinction between Jesus the man, and Christ the Spirit of Truth, or more correctly, the Spirit that manifests the existence of the Divine Love in the soul.
"Christ" is not a man in the sense that he is Jesus, the son of the Father,
but "Christ" is that part of Jesus, or rather Quality, that came to him after he fully received the Divine Love into his soul,
and was transformed into the very Essence of the Father in His Love.
Thus, "Christ" is not a man, but is the manifestation of this Love as bestowed upon Jesus and made part of his very existence. And when men use the expression, 'having Christ in you,' if they could correctly understand the true purport of the same, they would know that it (the expression) means only that the Divine Love of the Father is in their souls....
