John Emphasizes the Importance of Mr Padgett’s Work
of Receiving and Disseminating the Truths of Salvation


I AM HERE. John, the Apostle.

I come tonight to tell you that your condition of soul is very much better than it has been for some time. You are more in unison with the Father’s Love than you have been for some time, and you realize that this Love is working in your soul and making you happy.

I have been with you a great deal today as you copied the messages, and I saw that you enjoyed the Truths that they contained. The message describing the progress of the soul is one that contains the Truth of how the soul can find the true Way to the Love of the Father and to progress to the Celestial Spheres. It is a very clear and convincing portrayal of the necessary course that every soul must pursue which comes into the spirit world devoid of the Divine Love. There is no other way in which that soul can find its true development. The message is one that will appeal to the honest seeker after salvation, and will bring the happiness which only such an At-onement with the Father can give.

I see also that you have been thinking a great deal about your future on earth in carrying forward the work that you have been selected to do, and I am glad that this work is becoming a matter of such importance and seriousness to you. It is not only important to the world but also to you, and you must realize this when you consider what was told to you a few nights ago: that there is no one else in all the world at this time who is fitted to do the work which you are now doing, and which you must continue to do during the whole time of your stay on earth.

As you progress in this work, and as these Truths come to you and your soul becomes more filled with this Love, you will realize and understand the wonderful importance of the work to a greater degree. And you should now bend all your energies to developing your soul and its perceptions, and to carrying forward this work.

The accomplishing of this work is infinitely of more importance to us than to you, because we realize, as you cannot, what a failure it would be not to have these Truths made known to men, depriving them of opportunities that are so requisite to their future salvation, both on earth and in the spirit world.

So, I say, do not let yourself become discouraged, but believe. You will find that our promises will be fulfilled, the work will go on, and the Truths will be made known to humanity.

I am with you a great deal, trying to develop your spiritual nature; and, by this, I mean your soul. For as this develops, the better will you be able to receive our Truths so that they will be transmitted to the waiting world, and men may readily see and understand the Truths of God and the only Way to His Kingdom of Love and Immortality. Doubts as to the teachings of the churches are now penetrating and permeating the minds of many, and very many of these are only nominal Christians. Their perceptions of God are almost blunted, and they attend worship only because of a kind of feeling of duty and impression that it is right for them to do so. They know nothing of the Divine Love of the Father’s Nature and of the Plan for their salvation.

Their prayers and worship are mostly only those which come from the lips or from a kind of blind intellectual belief. Their soul longings do not enter into their prayers; and, as a consequence, their petitions for God’s Love and Mercy go no higher than their heads, as has been said.

This condition of men is very injurious to their future welfare and cannot possibly lead them to the Father; and so long as it exists, men can never become in an at-onement with Him. Only the inflowing of this Love can reconcile men with God in the higher and more desirable sense. Of course, they may become in harmony with Him by a purification of their natural love, but that is only the harmony that existed between Him and the first parents before their fall. It is not the harmony which Jesus taught and which was the object of his mission to teach. When he said, “I and my Father are one,” he did not refer to the at-onement between the mere image and the Substance, but to the At- onement which gives the very Substance of the Father to the souls of men.

I should like to write more tonight, but you are tired and should not be further drawn upon. So, I will say good night and stop.

Your brother in Christ, JOHN.
