I AM HERE. Jesus.
I am with you tonight, as I heard you longing for me, and have come
to comfort and bless you.
My dear brother, you have the Love of the Father in your soul to a
great extent this night, and I see that you are very happy and feel
that the Father is very near you. And I am so glad that your
condition is such, for I want to tell you how much the Love of the
Father is waiting to bless you and make you at-one with Him, and a
true child of His Affections.
I am now prepared to give you my next formal message, and, if you
feel that you would like to take it tonight, I will do so.
Well, then, I will write on the subject: “Why Man Must Receive the
Divine Love in Order to Be Admitted to the Kingdom of Heaven, or
In that Kingdom, there are no spirits who have not received this
Love, so that their natures are of the Divine Essence of the Father.
I do not mean that any spirit is perfect in this divine nature, but
that each spirit has so much of this Divine Love in his soul as to
make him in unison with the Nature of the Father. There are
different degrees of perfection, or, rather, there are different
degrees of possession of this Love by the spirits; and their
happiness and glory are dependent upon the amount of Love possessed
by them. No spirit who is an inhabitant of this Kingdom, though, is
without this Divine Love. And no spirit has in its soul any sin or
error that may have been a part of it while in the earth life.
All the spirits know that they are immortal, just as the Father is
Immortal. And this knowledge comes to them only from the possession
of this Love, which is the Divine Essence that flowed into their
souls from the Great Divine Nature of the Father. Should anything in
the soul not be in unison with the Soul of the Father, that spirit
could not possibly enter into that Kingdom. And as the soul of such
spirit remains in such condition of inharmony, it can never be
received into the Celestial Kingdom.
I know that, among men, and spirits also, it is thought and asserted
that the Father is All-Merciful and All-Good, and, in His Great Plan
for the salvation of men and for establishing the harmony of His
Universe, that no man or spirit will be excluded from His Heavenly
Kingdom. But, in this thought, both mortals and spirits are
mistaken. And I am sorry to say that many of them, when too late,
will realize this error.
God has certain Principles which are fixed and which are necessary
for men to know and obey in order for them to become at-one with Him
and partake of his Divine Nature. And if they fail to obey the
requirements of these Principles, they will forever be excluded from
that in their souls which will make them like the Father and admit
them to His Kingdom.
In such condition, or want of the qualifications, they would not be
happy, even though they were admitted to the Kingdom, for their
condition would wholly fail to respond to those things in the
Kingdom which give happiness to the true children of the Father. Of
necessity, they would be most unhappy, and heaven would not be a
heaven to them. So, you see, all spirits must have the prescribed
requirements of soul love and soul development in order to inhabit
As I said when on earth, “He that enters into the sheepfold in any
other way than through the gate is a thief and a robber,” and no
thief or robber is fitted for this Kingdom of Divine Love.
LET MAN KNOW THAT NO MERCY OR LOVE OF THE FATHER WILL BE GIVEN HIM
TO ENABLE HIM TO ENTER THIS KINGDOM UNLESS THAT MAN SEEKS THIS LOVE
AND THIS MERCY IN THE WAY THE FATHER HAS ORDAINED THAT THEY SHALL BE
SOUGHT FOR. NO SPECIAL PROVIDENCE WILL BE EXTENDED TO ANY MAN. AND
IF HE COMES TO THE MARRIAGE FEAST WITHOUT HIS WEDDING GARMENT, HE
WILL BE CAST OUT AND NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENJOY THE FEAST. MEN MAY
REASON TO THE EXTENT OF ALL THEIR REASONING POWERS TO PROVE THAT THE
FATHER, BEING A LOVING AND MERCIFUL FATHER, WILL NOT CAST THEM OUT,
OR KEEP THEM FROM ENTERING THIS KINGDOM, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL HIS
CHILDREN AND THE OBJECTS OF HIS LOVE AND FAVOR; AND THAT ONE IS AS
DEAR TO HIM AS THE OTHER; AND THAT HE IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS;
AND THAT, THEREFORE, HE WILL TREAT ALL ALIKE. BUT I TELL THEM THEY
ARE MISTAKEN. AND IF THEY WAIT UNTIL THE GREAT DAY WHEN THE “SHEEP”
SHALL BE SEPARATED FROM THE “GOATS”, THEY WILL REALIZE TO THEIR
EVERLASTING EXCLUSION FROM THIS KINGDOM THAT WHAT I SAY IS TRUE.
OF COURSE, EVERY SPIRIT EVER BORN IS TO THE FATHER THE OBJECT OF HIS
CARE, AND HE MAKES NO DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE SPIRITS AND MORTALS
THAT HE HAS CREATED, WANTING EVERY ONE OF THEM TO INHABIT HIS
KINGDOM AND PARTAKE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH HE HAS PROVIDED FOR THEM,
AND WHICH ARE BEYOND THEIR CONCEPTION IN THE GREATNESS OF THE
GRANDEUR AND BEAUTY OF THESE THINGS. HE CALLS TO ALL HIS CREATURES
TO COME AND PARTAKE OF THESE GREAT PROVISIONS THAT HE HAS MADE FOR
THEM, AND NO CREATURE IS REFUSED THE GIFT OF THESE THINGS, OR HEARD
TO ASK AND NOT BE ANSWERED WITH THEIR BESTOWAL. YET, WHEN THAT MAN
OR SPIRIT WHO HAS THIS GREAT BOON, AND THE WAY SHOWN BY WHICH HE CAN
RECEIVE THESE GIFTS, REFUSES OR NEGLECTS TO FOLLOW THAT WAY OR TO
RECEIVE THESE GIFTS IN THE WAY ORDAINED BY THE FATHER, THEN ALL
THESE GREAT GIFTS ARE WITHDRAWN FROM HIM. AFTER THE GREAT DAY OF
SEPARATION, NEVER AGAIN WILL HE HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF RECEIVING
AND MEN CANNOT SAY THAT THE FATHER IS UNJUST OR UNMERCIFUL OR
UNLOVING BECAUSE, THEREAFTER, HE FOREVER SHUTS THE DOOR TO THESE
PRIVILEGES OR THE OPPORTUNITY OF RECEIVING THEM. MEN HAVE REJECTED
HIS GIFT AND NEGLECTED TO SEARCH HIS PLANS FOR THEIR GREAT
HAPPINESS; CONSEQUENTLY, THEY WILL HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN WHEN,
LIKE THE FOOLISH VIRGINS, THEY FIND THE DOOR SHUT AGAINST THEM.
SO, I SAY, MEN MUST REALIZE THE NECESSITY OF PUTTING ON THE WEDDING
GARMENTS AND OF FILLING THEIR LAMPS WITH OIL IN ORDER TO BE ADMITTED
INTO THE KINGDOM.
I will not herein tell the Way in which men must prepare themselves
for an entrance into this Kingdom of the Father, for it would take
too long; but I will explain this fully in a
future message. And, before
closing, I will say that if men will pray to the Father for the
inflowing of His Divine Love into their souls, and have faith, they
will find themselves on the true Way to becoming inhabitants of His
As it is late, I must stop writing. With all my love and blessings,
and the Blessing of the Father, I will say good night.
Your friend and brother,
