Answers to Prayers Cannot Violate God’s Law of Compensation
This mediated message shows that answers to prayers cannot violate God’s Law of Compensation. God will only help humans to remove the causes of suffering and the consequences of sin, not the effects and results. For related information, go to this page.
God Does Not Set Aside His Law of Compensation When Answering Man’s Prayers.
(ELIAS, PROPHET OF THE OLD TESTAMENT)
(December 25th, 1916 | Received by James Padgett)
I AM HERE. Elias, prophet of old. (Elijah)
I will write a short message tonight, as it is late and you are tired.
Well, I desire to say that the message you received from the Master contains some of the most important Truths affecting the relationship of God to man in his worldly or material living.
EVERY TRUTH THAT WAS UTTERED HAS IN IT AN ELEMENT WHICH SHOWS THAT MAN MUST EXPECT AND KNOW TO A CERTAIN EXTENT THAT GOD WILL NOT INTERFERE WITH THE LAW OF COMPENSATION AS TO ITS EFFECTS AND RESULTS. HE WILL ONLY HELP MAN TO REMOVE THE CAUSES THAT SO CERTAINLY ENTAIL THE RESULTS. AND THE SOONER MEN KNOW THIS AND MORE THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND IT, THE BETTER WILL THEY BECOME ABLE TO AVOID THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN AND THE VIOLATION OF LAW, AND UNDERSTAND THAT NO PRAYER WILL CAUSE GOD TO RESPOND WHERE A SUSPENSION OR SETTING ASIDE OF HIS LAWS OR THEIR WORKINGS IS NECESSARY.
HE WILL RESPOND TO PRAYER WHERE THAT PRAYER ASKS FOR THE REMOVAL OF CAUSES, BUT NEVER WHEN IT APPLIES ONLY TO EFFECTS.
MEN SHOULD LEARN THIS TRUTH AND, IN THEIR PRAYERS, ASK THAT THOSE THINGS OR CAUSES WHICH, IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW OF COMPENSATION, BRING ABOUT RESULTS THAT ARE HARMFUL TO THEM BE REMOVED OR ELIMINATED FROM THEIR ACTS AND DEEDS, AS WELL AS FROM THEIR DESIRES.
I could write a long message on this subject, but will not do so now, as you are not just in condition to receive it. I will come soon and write at length. So, with my love, I will say good night.
Your brother in Christ,
