Jesus Communicates a Personal Message to Mr. Padgett.
He States That He Is Not God, but Was Sent by the Father to Lead Men to His Favor and Love.
As Such, He Is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I AM HERE. Jesus.
Be of good cheer, for I am with you always. Do not let your heart fear, for the Lord is your Keeper and He will be your Guide and Shield. Only believe and trust in Him and you will soon be born again into the spiritual world of His Kingdom. Let me teach you and give you the thoughts that He gave to me while on earth. Let me show you that the things of this world are not the things that save the soul from sin and unhappiness. Be a true follower of your God.
(Master, what is the New Birth?)
IT IS THE FLOWING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT INTO THE SOUL OF A MAN, AND THE DISAPPEARING OF ALL THAT TENDED TO KEEP IT IN A CONDITION OF SIN AND ERROR. IT IS NOT THE WORKINGS OF THE MAN’S OWN WILL BUT THE GRACE OF GOD. IT IS THE LOVE OF GOD THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING.
You will soon experience the change, and then you will be a happy man and fit to lead others to the Truths of God. Let your heart be open to the “knockings” of the Spirit, and keep your mind free from thoughts of sin. Be a man who loves his God and his fellowman. Your love is only now of the earthly kind, but it will soon be of a spiritual quality.
YOU MUST NOT LET THE CARES OF THIS WORLD KEEP YOU FROM GOD. LET HIS SPIRIT COME INTO YOUR SOUL. YOUR WILL IS THE THING THAT DETERMINES WHETHER YOU WILL BECOME A CHILD OF GOD OR NOT. UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO LET THE HOLY SPIRIT ENTER INTO YOUR HEART IT WILL NOT DO SO. ONLY THE VOLUNTARY SUBMISSION TO, OR ACCEPTANCE OF, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL MAKE THE CHANGE.
I WAS THE INSTRUMENT IN GOD’S HANDS OF LEADING MEN TO HIS FAVOR AND LOVE. WHEN I SAID THAT I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, I MEANT THAT THROUGH MY TEACHINGS AND EXAMPLE MEN SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND GOD. I WAS NOT GOD AND NEVER CLAIMED TO BE. THE WORSHIP OF ME AS A GOD IS BLASPHEMOUS, AND I DID NOT TEACH IT. I AM A SON OF GOD, AS YOU ARE. DO NOT LET THE TEACHINGS OF MEN LEAD YOU TO WORSHIP ME AS A GOD. I AM NOT.
THE “TRINITY” IS A MISTAKE OF THE WRITERS OF THE BIBLE. THERE IS NO “TRINITY”—ONLY ONE GOD, THE FATHER. HE IS ONE AND ALONE. I AM HIS TEACHER OF TRUTH. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS HIS MESSENGER AND DISPENSER OF LOVE TO MANKIND. WE ARE ONLY HIS INSTRUMENTS IN BRINGING MAN TO A UNION WITH HIM.
I AM NOT THE EQUAL OF MY FATHER. HE IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD. I CAME FROM THE SPIRIT WORLD TO EARTH AND TOOK THE FORM OF MAN, BUT I DID NOT BECOME GOD—ONLY THE SON OF MY FATHER. YOU ALSO LIVED AS A SPIRIT IN THAT KINGDOM, BUT YOU TOOK THE FORM OF MAN MERELY AS A SON OF YOUR FATHER. YOU ARE THE SAME AS I AM, EXCEPT AS TO SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT, AND YOU MAY BECOME AS GREATLY DEVELOPED AS MYSELF.
I AM THE FIRST SON ON EARTH WHO HAD BECOME VESTED WITH THE DIVINE LOVE OF GOD TO THE EXTENT OF BEING WHOLLY FREE FROM SIN AND ERROR WHEN I LIVED IN THE FLESH. MY LIFE WAS NOT A LIFE OF EARTHLY PLEASURE OR SIN, BUT WAS GIVEN WHOLLY TO MY FATHER’S WORK. I WAS HIS “ONLY” SON IN THAT LIGHT. AND HE WAS MY FATHER AS I KNEW HIM TO BE. HE IS NOT A SPIRIT OF FORM LIKE MYSELF OR YOURSELF.
I WAS BORN AS YOU WERE BORN. I WAS THE SON OF MARY AND JOSEPH, AND NOT BORN OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE. I WAS ONLY A HUMAN BEING AS REGARDS MY BIRTH AND PHYSICAL EXISTENCE. THE ACCOUNT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IS NOT TRUE, AND WAS WRITTEN BY THOSE WHO KNEW NOT WHAT THEY WROTE. THEY HAVE DONE THE CAUSE OF GOD’S TRUTHS MUCH INJURY. LET NOT YOUR BELIEF IN THAT ERROR KEEP YOU FROM SEEING THAT MY TEACHINGS ARE THE TRUTH. BE ONLY A BELIEVER OF GOD AND HIS TRUTHS, AND YOU WILL SOON BE IN THE KINGDOM. YOU WILL SOON BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND AS I UNDERSTAND.
