Law of Love Transcends Law of Compensation
Elias, Prophet of the Old Testament, Discusses the Law of Compensation,
and Emphasizes That God Will Not Alter the Same
I AM HERE. Elias.
I will write a short message tonight, as it is late and you are tired.
Well, I desire to say that the message that 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 man has uttered has in it an element which shows that man must, to a certain extent, expect and know that God will not interfere with the Law of Compensation as to its effects and results. Only will He help man to remove the causes that so certainly entail the results. And the sooner men know this and more thoroughly understand it, the sooner will they become able to avoid the consequences of sin and the violation of law, and also 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 THE REMOVAL OF THE CAUSES, BUT NEVER WHEN IT APPLIES ONLY TO EFFECTS.
This Truth men should learn. And, in their prayers, they should ask for those things which, in compliance with the Law of Compensation, bring about results that are harmful to them to 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. So, with my love, I will say good night.
Your brother in Christ, ELIAS.
A Friend Explains That God’s Laws Are Not Changed,
but That When the Divine Love Comes into the Soul, the Lesser Law of Compensation
Is Removed from the Scope of Its Working
I AM HERE. Your friend, R.E.
Let me write a line, for I am very desirous of again communicating to you the fact that I am progressing and have found the Love of which you first told me, and which information led to my seeking It.
I know that you are very much interested in the higher messages and want to give your time to receiving them, and that it is almost impudent for me to intrude. But I have asked your wife if it will interfere with any of these messages tonight by my writing, and she informed me that it would not, as none of these messages would be written tonight. So, I feel somewhat at liberty to write, and I hope that you will consider that I am not intruding.
Well, since I last wrote to you, I have prayed to the Father for an increase of His Love with all the longings of my soul, and realize that It has come into my soul in greater abundance; and I am correspondingly happy. I shall soon be in the Third Sphere, so the spirit friends who have been so kind and loving to me tell me, and it gives me much happiness to know that such a prospect is opened up to me. For, because of the progress that I have already made, I can realize, to some extent, what a home in that sphere will mean to me.
I would like to write you a long letter tonight, but I must not detain you. But this I want you to remember: that I am very happy now, and my sufferings have left me. And I know that all these blessings came to me because of the workings of the Divine Love in my soul. It is wonderful what that Love can accomplish in the way of rescuing a sinful soul from its surroundings of darkness and from suffering.
The Law of Compensation, which is a great Truth, does its work without hesitation or partiality, and without interference by any god or angel in the way of commanding it to cease its work. But this Great Divine Love is now more powerful than this law. And when It enters into the soul of a man or spirit, in effect, It says to this law: “You shall no longer operate on the soul of this sinner that was, because I will take that soul away from, and outside the operations of, this law.”
How little men understand this working of the Love. It does not set aside the law, but It merely removes the soul, in which It has found lodgment, from the scope of the operations of that law. The law goes on, but the objects of its operations are rescued from the same. No law is set aside that men think and argue is necessary in order for a soul to be saved from its penalties. When on earth, I believed this, too, and did not believe in or accept the doctrine of the special interposition of Divine Providence to succor men from the consequence of their sins. I did not believe that because I thought that the only way in which this could be accomplished was for God to say to the law: “You shall cease to operate.” But now I know that, while the law never ceases to operate until the penalties that are called for are paid, yet, this Divine Love is above the law, though not antagonistic to it.
I wish that I might write more on this subject tonight, as, to me, it is one of the most wonderful Truths in God’s Universe of spirit. And I never cease to meditate upon it and thank the Father that I was made a real example of the power of this Divine Love.
Well, I must stop now. But, when you have the time, I should like to come and write at more length. Well, friend, good night.
Your friend, R.E.
