Divine Love Divine Truth
Peace and Harmony on Earth - All humans will ultimately be brought into Harmony with God, in either the Natural Love, or in the Higher One, the Divine Love, is certain. That all sin and error will finally be eradicated from God's Universe is decreed.
Peace and Harmony

I am here, Jesus.
I come tonight to tell you of a Truth, which is important to all humankind, which I desire that you receive just as I write it. So give your best care to receiving just what I shall attempt to write.
I have read with you tonight many sayings contained in the alleged epistles of Paul and Peter. I realize that they do not seem to be consistent with the Truths that have been declared to you by myself, and by the apostles who have written to you. I desire that you shall understand some of these inconsistencies, and discard from your mind these sayings of the epistles wherever they do not agree with what we have written, or what we shall write.
In the first place, the continual reference of these epistles to my being God is all wrong, and must not be believed. Also the statement that my blood washes away sin, or that I died on the cross for the salvation of humans, or that I took upon myself the sins of humankind and thereby relieved them from the burden of their sins, and the punishment which they must suffer, in expiation of their evil deeds and thoughts.
Again, when it said, that from the beginning the Father had foreordained my death on the cross, that humans might be redeemed from the penalties of sin, in all humans who lived thereafter, are all wrong. Have no foundation as facts in the Plan of God for the Salvation of Humans and the restoring of the Harmony of His Universe and the eradication of all sin and error from the World.
Neither Paul, nor Peter, wrote these things. Never did I teach them. They are not in accord with the Great Plan of Salvation. The further away will be the realization by humans of the Truth of the Only Plan the Father has provided for their Redemption, which I came to Earth to declare and explain to my apostles first, and then to the whole World.
In these epistles too much emphasis is given to the importance of faith and works. I mean faith, in the mere beliefs, which these epistles taught, followed by works. Not enough importance to the Foundation Truth of Human's Redemption from sin and becoming reconciled to the Father. I mean the New Birth, by the inflowing into their souls of the Divine Love of the Father, through the Ministrations of the Holy Spirit.
Many of their teachings, as to human's conduct towards human, and as to the lives that the recipients of these Truths should lead, as effecting their own purification and becoming in a condition of righteousness, are True. Are as applicable to the conduct and living of humans today, as they were in the days in which the apostles taught. But when the epistles teach, or lead, humans, in any particular to understand that these, what may be called merely Moral Principles, will enable a human by their observance to enter into the Kingdom of God, or the Celestial Kingdom, they are false and misleading. Humans, when they become spirits, will realize that while leading the lives which these teachings call them to lead, they will become very happy, and occupy conditions and positions in the Spirit World that will make their happiness far superior to that which they enjoy on Earth and even enable them to become occupants of Higher Spiritual Spheres. Yet, they will never be permitted to enter the Celestial Kingdom of the Father, which can only be attained to by the possession of Divine Love.
So I say, humans must understand and realize the difference between the results to them from leading merely good and moral lives, which affect and develop the Natural Love, and those results which ensue from the New Birth.
I have attempted to explain to you why the Great and Important Truth of my mission to Earth, as I explained it to my apostles, and as was taught by them, and written by them, was not preserved and contained in the Bible, as now written and accepted by the church as canonical. The great desire in those days was to show and impress upon humans, those teachings which affected their conduct on Earth. To hold out to them the rewards that would follow such living, and the rewards, which would follow their lives in the Spirit World, which would become their homes after death. As I have said, the leading of lives in accordance with these teachings would ensure humans a great happiness in the Spirit World, but not the Happiness, which my teachings, if observed, would lead to.
In the various copying, and compilations, of the writings of the apostles, many changes from the originals were made. Those persons who performed this work, I mean by this, the dignitaries and rulers of the church, did not know the difference between those things which would bring about a purification of the Natural Love, and those things which were necessary to fit a soul for entrance into the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven. Hence, when they came to perform this work, they made the error of teaching, that the living of the Moral Life would entitle the soul to a reward, which they supposed, would be the Kingdom of Heaven and Immortality. This erroneous teaching has prevented many a human from gaining the right to the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven, as they honestly and sincerely believed would be theirs, when they came to pass into the Spirit World.
Many of these teachings are intended to make a reformation in the lives of humans, and to purge their souls from sin and error, so far as the Natural Love forms a part of the condition of the soul. I taught these Moral Truths, to a very large extent, for such teachings were necessary, because human’s will were out of Harmony with God's Laws, which affected the Natural Love, as well as out of Harmony with the Laws that affected the Divine Love of the Father. It is the Object and Plan of God to bring into Harmony both of these Loves. Thereby enable human to enjoy those things which are provided and waiting for them.
As I said when on Earth, "Narrow is the way and strait is the gate which leads to Life Everlasting, and few there be that enter therein", I repeat now. It is apparent, from the observation of the way in which humankind, from the beginning, have exercised their wills, which God leaves free to their own volition, that a vast majority of humans will never enter in at the strait gate. But be contented to live in the Spheres and happiness, which their Natural Love, in its Perfect State and Spiritual Progress, will fit them for.
That all humans will ultimately be brought into Harmony with God, in either the Natural Love, or in the Higher One (the Divine Love), is certain. That all sin and error will finally be eradicated from God's Universe is decreed. But the time will depend to a great extent, upon the wills and desires of humans. Hence, while my great mission in coming to Earth and teaching humans, was to show The Way to the Celestial Kingdom, yet a lesser part of my mission was to teach them a way to their redemption from sin and error that would result in the purification of the Natural Love. To my great regret, and to the untold injury to humans, my moral teachings, were more at large set forth in portions of the Bible, as now accepted, than were my teachings of the Higher Divine Truths.
I will not write more tonight but will continue later.
Well my dear brother, I see that you are in a much better condition Spiritually than you have been for some time. You must thank the Father for it. Your conception of last night's experience is True. You received a wonderful amount of the Divine Love. I was with you in Love and blessing. So continue to pray and trust in the Father. You will realize a wonderful happiness, power, and peace.
I must stop now, your brother and friend, Jesus.
Peace and Harmony
January 11th, 1916
I am here, Jesus.
I will continue my discourse of last night.
I was saying that the Jews, and the teachers of the church that became established, or rather controlled, after the death of my followers, and those who understood the True Teachings of my disciples, taught the conduct of humans towards their fellowmen. The observance of certain ceremonies and feasts were the important things for humans to learn and practice in order to gain salvation, rather than the Divine Truths, which made human a Divine Child of the Father and At-One with Him through the operations of the New Birth.
Of course, before my coming, the Jews could not have taught the Divine Truth of the New Birth, because the Great Gift of the Rebestowal of the Divine Love had not been made. It was not possible for that Great Truth, which was necessary for Immortality and the possibility of human's partaking of God's Divine Love, to be known to the Jews. Hence, they could not teach it. Their teachings were limited and confined to the things which would make them purer in their Natural Love and in the relation of that Natural Love to the Father.
God, at that time, while He never gave them the Privilege of becoming At-One with Him in the Divine Love, or even of becoming such beings in their character and Spiritual Qualities as were Adam and Eve, commonly supposed to be our First Parents, yet did require of them obedience to His Laws of Love and Harmony. Which would develop in them their Natural Love, to such a degree as would cause it to become in Harmony with His Laws that controlled and governed their Natural Love.
If you will study the Ten Commandments, you will see that these commandments deal only with the Natural Love (or Moral Principles). By their observance would tend to make humans better in that Natural Love, in their conduct with one another, and in their relationship to God, so far as that Natural Love brought them in communion with Him. This Natural Love, as I have said, was possessed by humans, just as the First Parents possessed it, and was never taken from them. In its purity was in Perfect Harmony with God's Creation and the workings of His Universe. But, not withstanding these great qualities, humans were mere humans, and had in them no part of the Divinity of the Father. This being so, the Jews, while they were supposed to be more in contact with God, through the prophets and seers, than were any of the other races or sects, of God's Children. Yet never looked for a Messiah that would come, with any other, or greater, power, than that, which would enable them to become the great ruling nation of the Earth. To whom all other peoples would be subordinated, subjected, and powerless to ever again conquer, or subject their nation to bondage. In a way this messiah was to be a kind of supernatural being, having power which no other human ever had, a kind of god to be worshiped and served in their earthly lives.
Many of the Jews, notwithstanding what may be said to the contrary, and in the teachings of the prophets, believed in other gods than the one which Moses declared, as is evidenced in their histories, both sacred and secular. For, whenever their God, that is, the God of Moses, did not treat them just as they thought He should, they would create and worship other gods, even the golden calf. So I say, they never expected a messiah who would be other than a most powerful ruler on Earth.
Their ideas and beliefs of the Life after death were very hazy. Even that part of them known as the Pharisees, who believed in a kind of resurrection, never conceived that when they should drop the Mortal Life, they would be anything different in their qualities and characters from what they were as mortals, minus the physical bodies, and the great increased happiness which would come to them as such mortals changed in their appearances. This was the idea of the common people, and also of the priests and scribes, notwithstanding the many beautiful and spiritual psalms ascribed to David, the happiness or glory that they might expect, was only that which would come to them as Spiritualized mortals having only the Natural Love.
So you see, the Great Gift of the Father that is the Rebestowal of the Divine Love, was not known, or even dreamed of, by the Jews. Nor conceived of, nor taught, by their scribes. Nor even by their great prophets, or lawgivers, such as Moses, Elias, and others. Their conception of God was that of an exalted personal being. All Powerful and All Knowing. One, whom they would be able to see face-to-face, as they might any king or ruler, when they should come into the Heavens which He had prepared for them, and where He had His habitation.
I will defer the writing until later, Jesus.
Peace and Harmony
January 12th, 1916
I am here, Jesus.
I will continue my discourse.
As I was saying, the chief object of my mission on Earth was to teach the Rebestowal of the Divine Love upon human, and The Way to obtain It. The secondary object was to teach humans those Moral Truths, which would tend to make them better in their conduct towards their fellow human, and Purer in their Natural Love.
So it is, that in my teachings of these Moral Truths, the effect of these teachings was to bring human more in Harmony with the Laws of the Father, which control the operations of the Natural Love. I never at any time intended that humans should understand that these Moral Truths would bring about their Union with the Father, in the Divine Sense, or that the possession of this Natural Love, in its Purest State, would enable human to become a partaker of God's Divine Nature, or an inhabitant of His Celestial Kingdom.
As I have said, the only object apparently that these compilers and writers of the Bible had to accomplish, was to persuade humans that the observance of these Moral Teachings in their conduct was all that was necessary to enable them to enter the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven. I know that it is said that Love, almsgiving, and kind deeds will work to a human's salvation, and enable them to become at-one with the Father, and to enjoy the Presence of God in the High Heavens, but this is not True. The good deeds, which humans perform in the way of helping their fellow human, will live after them. Will undoubtedly work towards a human becoming Perfect in their Natural Love. They will not bring that human in At-Onement with the Father in the Higher Love, which is so necessary to their full Salvation.
My messages to you, while they will not take one jot or tittle from the Moral Teachings, yet they will show to human the necessity, and The Way, to obtain a full reconciliation with the Father, and a home in the Celestial Spheres.
I will come to you again and write upon a subject which is important to you, and which humans should understand.
So with all my Love I will say goodnight, your brother and friend, Jesus.
Peace and Harmony on Earth
