Goliath, the Famous Giant of the Philistines, Tells Mr. Padgett That He Was a Real Person Who Lived in the Days of the Old Testament.
He Denies That There Is Any Reincarnation After the Death of the Mortal Body,
and Disavows That He Was Killed by David, as Described in the Scriptures
I AM HERE. Goliath.
I have been present for some time and have listened to your conversations on the various sects who are expecting a great teacher, and others who look for a reincarnation; and if it were not so serious to the welfare of mankind, it would be very humorous. But the matter is too serious to deal with in a humorous vein, and I will say a few words as to the utter falsity of both of these beliefs.
There will appear no such great teacher as is expected. Of course, many may appear on earth claiming to be such a teacher, and they may declare some moral truth that may be beneficial to mankind. But these teachings will not be such as these people may expect a great teacher to make known. And the result will be that if the world had to depend on such teachings, it would be very little, if any, better than it now is; for there is only one course of Truth. And in order for any great teacher to teach such Truths, he necessarily will have to have a knowledge of such Truths. And, here, I want to say that there is only one means of learning such Truths, and that is through the help of Jesus Christ and his followers, who know these Truths, and the Holy Spirit that speaks to all men if they will open their souls to Its silent voice of Truth and Love.
So, I say that these people who are expecting some earthly teacher to arise and come to them with a knowledge of Truth will be greatly disappointed. For it is impossible that any man will ever come in some mysterious and godlike way, and will be endowed with this knowledge. The souls of these people are longing for the Truth. And, not having a knowledge as to how it may come about, they are willing to conjure up in their minds some being that may possibly burst on the world and enlighten them in those Truths for which their souls are longing and wishing. No, in all time and eternity, they will never learn what they so anxiously desire from any great teacher of the kind that I have named and they expect.
As to the others who are equally misguided, and who believe that their salvation or future condition of happiness depends on reincarnation, I must say that they are now, and will be, disappointed, just as will be the first class that I mention. This doctrine of reincarnation is a false and misleading one, and will never enable any man or spirit to live the second time in the body as a mortal. It is so utterly absurd that it is astonishing that men can believe that such a thing can be! And, besides, if they will only think seriously for a moment, they will realize that there is no necessity for man to live again on earth; for the surroundings and things that prevent the progress of man to perfection are so detrimental to his progress that it would not assist him one particle, in acquiring such progress, to have to undergo a second incarnation.
When the spirit leaves the body, its possibility for progress then becomes greater than ever existed on earth, although some spirits for long ages do not take advantage of such possibilities; yet, they exist. And earth life can afford no equal means to them for making this progress towards what these people call “Nirvana.” Someday, the Truths will become so plain and easily understood by mortals that these beliefs, of their own weight—and I mean weight that absurdity gives them—will cease to exist.
You may be somewhat surprised that I write on these subjects, but you must know that I am an angel of the Celestial Heavens and have a work to do. And, being present, I requested the privilege of writing; and, it being granted, I did so.
I know what Divine Love means and what progress means, as I came from the lowest hells and found no necessity for reincarnation. And you may be assured that if my condition of suffering and darkness could have been gotten rid of by reincarnation, I would have reincarnated centuries before I was relieved of my awful condition. I have met spirits who said they believed in the doctrine. But, strange to say, none of them had ever been able to reincarnate, though they persisted that they felt that other spirits had, who were just in that condition that permitted it, and that they would also reincarnate when they became in a condition that was suitable. But I have noticed that these spirits never got in that suitable condition, but simply progressed in the spirit world. And they now say that they were mistaken, and are thankful that there is no such thing as reincarnation.
I want to stop now. So, thanking you, I will say good night.
Your brother in Christ, GOLIATH,
of whom men may think a mythical person, but who really lived and died, even though he may not have been killed by a slingshot of David, as the Bible relates, but who is yet a real living mortal who followed the ways of other mortals in sinning and dying, and who went through hell and is at last redeemed.
