God Has Personality and Awareness of All Things
This mediated message elaborates on the previously mentioned truths about who and what is God, namely that God has personality and awareness of all things, including the thoughts and deed of humans. His personality cannot be understood by the mind or intellect, but only by sufficiently developed soul perceptions.

Jesus Affirms the Professor’s Message Concerning the Personality of God
and the Necessity of Developing the Soul Perceptions to Be Able to Perceive God’s Personality.
(November 22nd, 1915 | Received by James Padgett)
I AM HERE. Jesus.
I have heard what the Professor said to you and you must try your best to comprehend its meaning. It contains a description of the true conception of God in a way that only one having the developed soul perceptions could explain. The only difficulty in your fully understanding this idea of Who and What God is, is that the idea is not one that the mere mind can grasp. For only the soul that has been developed to a sufficient degree can comprehend this. But, yet, you may be able to conceive of its meaning to an extent that will enable you to get closer to our Father as a real, Personal Father, and not as a being of formless existence only. I mean that the idea of Personality may bring the Father nearer to you so that you may realize a deeper meaning of His Love and Care and Mercy and Interest in you and in all His creatures.
In my message on God, you will find that the idea of Personality is spoken of, but not emphasized so much as in the writing of the Professor. BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT OUR FATHER IS A BEING OF REAL EXISTENCE AND PERSONALITY TO THE SOUL PERCEPTIONS.
OF COURSE, MEN WILL NOT UNDERSTAND THIS TRUTH SO LONG AS THEY DEPEND UPON THE MERE INTELLECT TO COMPREHEND IT. AND IT MAY NOT MEAN MUCH TO THEM, BUT THIS TRUTH IS OF THE GREATEST IMPORTANCE TO MANKIND, BOTH IN THEIR LIVES ON EARTH AND IN THE SPIRIT WORLD. “THOU, GOD, SEEST ME” IS NOT A MERE MEANINGLESS GENERALITY WHICH MEN REPEAT AND DO NOT UNDERSTAND, FOR GOD DOES SEE EVERY ACT OF MAN. AND, AS I SAID WHEN ON EARTH, NOT EVEN A SPARROW FALLS WITHOUT MY FATHER KNOWING IT, AND THE HAIRS OF YOUR HEAD ARE ALL NUMBERED. SO, IF MEN WILL ONLY LEARN THAT THIS GREAT TRUTH IS OF SUCH IMPORTANCE, THEY WILL TAKE MORE CARE OF THE MANNER IN WHICH THEY LIVE THEIR LIVES.
MEN MUST REALIZE THAT GOD KNOWS NOT ONLY THEIR ACTS BUT ALSO THEIR THOUGHTS. EVERY IDLE THOUGHT WILL HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR, AND THE PENALTIES WHICH HIS LAWS IMPOSE WILL HAVE TO BE PAID.
SO, IF MEN WOULD ONLY REALIZE THE FACT THAT GOD IS ABLE TO SEE AND KNOW WHAT THEIR LIVES ON EARTH ARE, THEY WOULD THINK MANY TIMES BEFORE THEY DO SOME THINGS WHICH THEY DO, SUPPOSING THAT NO ONE BUT THEMSELVES KNOW OF THEM.
I am very glad that the Professor wrote to you on this subject tonight, for it is one that is very important in our plan of revealing the Truths of God and His Attributes.
I will write another message to you very soon, and one that will be very important to mankind. It will also convey some things that you must learn.
So, with all my love and blessings, I am
Your own brother and friend,
