The Power of Divine Love to Redeem Men from Sin and Error

I am here, Jesus.

I want to write tonight on the power of Divine Love to redeem men from sin and error.

My Father’s Love is, as I have written, the only thing in all this universe that can save men from their evil natures and make them at-one with Him. This Divine Love, I have already explained, and when mankind will read my messages and try to understand the meaning of this Love, it will soon become more at peace with itself and with God.

This Divine Love is the one great power that moves the universe, and without it there would not be that wonderful harmony that exists in the Celestial Heavens of the spirit world, nor would so much happiness exist among the Angels who inhabit these spheres.

This Divine Love is also the influence which makes men on earth think and do that which makes for peace and good will among men. It is not possessed by all men, in fact, by comparatively few, yet, its influence is felt over nearly the whole earth. Even those who have never heard of my teachings or of my Father enjoy the benefit of its influence in some kind of belief or faith in an overshadowing spirit of great power and watchfulness.

I know that this is true, for I have visited all parts of the earth and have looked into men’s hearts and found in them some elements of belief which evidenced that this Great Love was influencing these unenlightened people. So notwithstanding the fact that my gospel is not preached to every creature as I commanded when on earth, yet, this Love of the Father is everywhere and....

Happiness and Peace that Passeth all Understanding, that Comes to the Possessor of the Divine Love

I am here, Samuel, Prophet of Old.

I come to write to you that I am with you in love and hope for your present blessing and happiness.

I know that the worries of life prevent you from realizing the influence of this Great Love, which is surrounding you and which is ready and waiting to fill your soul to its fullness. But if you will pray more to the Father and exercise your faith, you will find that your worries will lessen and peace will come to you in such abundance and beauty that you will feel like a new man.

As John said, with this faith, Love will flow into your soul, and you will realize to some extent the joys of our Celestial conditions, for the Love that may be yours is the same Love in its nature that we possess and that has made Angels of us all and inhabitants of the Father’s Kingdom.

Only believe, and you will realize how willing this Love is to take possession of your soul, and make you so happy, that even the troubles that you have will not be sufficient to take from you the great peace that surpasseth all understanding.

I have been in the spirit for many years and have possessed this Love for a long time and know by actual experience what it is, and what great joy it brings to its possessor, so that you can rely on what I promise you and feel the certainty that actual knowledge....

Divine Love is Ever Waiting to Fill the Soul and Will, When the Soul Longings Become Real For Its Possession

I am here. St. John (Apostle of Jesus).

...You are blessed in that you have the knowledge of the existence of this Love, and that it may be yours if you so will it to be and pray with the true longings of your soul’s desires. You cannot doubt the truth of what I write for, as in the ordinary things of life, there is nothing so convincing as personal experience, and your experience is such that there has been no room for doubt.

So if you would keep the consciousness of the presence of this Love continually alive, pray and pray whenever the opportunity presents itself, and by this I don’t mean that you shall wait for a time when you are not engaged in your business affairs, but at moments when the mind may be free, even if only for a moment, from these business affairs. The longings, if exercised only for a moment, will bring their results; for God’s ear is always open and ready to cause the responses to such longings.

One moment of true soul-felt longings is more effective than hours of prayer where these longings are not present. The prayers of the lip, or of habit, arises no higher than the escaping breath and does not cause the Love to respond and flow into the soul. Remember this, and then realize how futile are all the prayers of preachers and ostensible worshipers when the soul’s longings and desires are not present.

Only soul can call to soul, and Divine Love responds only when such soul calls. The mere desires of the mind, if I may so express my meaning, do not in the least affect the soul, and as mind can operate only on mind, there cannot possibly be any activity of the soul’s faculties, when only mind is in operation. Hence, you will see, that all the worship that comes merely from the mind will not effectuate the working of the Love or....
