At a very difficult point in my life, I was one day searching the Internet for information and found a web site containing something that was not exactly what I was looking for-messages from Jesus, as well as from other Celestial Spirits. I had practiced Buddhism and strongly believed in Eastern philosophies for more than 16 years. Subsequently, I became interested in metaphysics and even researched some books on "Huna," a Polynesian religion. These "philosophies" seemed, then, to contain the answers to many questions I had, which I never found in my earlier years in the Christian Churches, even though I believed that Jesus was a great philosopher himself, but that his true teachings were distorted and not as taught by these Churches. Though Buddhism taught us that there were "many Gods" in the Universe acting as protective forces, and not only one God, and I accepted that point of view with some reservation, I always sensed that there was only "GOD." But I accepted and found logic in the theory of reincarnation taught by philosophy, since this principle explained many things of life I could not understand, otherwise. Yet, for some reason, I continued to ask the "Universe" to reveal spiritual TRUTHS to me, and, as far as I can remember, I yearned for this since my early teens.
Somehow, the messages from Jesus and the other Celestial Spirits caught my attention in such a way that I am convinced that, in response to my soul's searching for "Spritual Truth," I was prompted by these Angels (Celestial Spirits) to read their messages, which I would have otherwise dismissed. I read them with amazement, every possible moment that I could.
In so doing, I could grasp from their high spiritual content and, especially, the very detailed account of, and description of the spirit world, that these messages could not have been originated from any human mind or a spirit imposter, but from a higher source, or as purported. I had before learned about communication between mortals and spirits, so it was not difficult for me to believe in such possibility. With this discernment, my interest grew more in these writings.
Though what I had read was very convincing, one morning, after reading yet more of the messages, I sent my thoughts to Jesus in a very sincere manner, somewhat like this, as I recall: "Jesus-if these messages really came from whom they are said-you and others in the Celestial Heavens, then surely you can hear my thoughts and send me a sign which I will clearly understand. Please confirm that these messages did not come from someone trying to impersonate YOU, but that they are, indeed, from YOU. Though these messages contain high spiritual information and it is hard to believe that such information could have been conceived by any mind, I still need your confirmation. Please forgive me if you are, indeed, the source of these messages and I am questioning you."
Well, after having this "conversation" with Jesus, I continued with my daily tasks and had completely dismissed the thought from my mind, as, perhaps, I really did not expect to get an answer. Approximately one hour and a half later, my phone rang and I was unable to take the call at the moment. Upon checking the Caller I.D. later to see who had called, the Caller I.D. displayed: "JESUS PEOPLE US." I was in shock! I clearly understood that this was the answer to my question through a sign that I would understand. I could not utter a word for a few seconds as I paced in my room, totally dumbfounded. After three or four days later, I called the number displayed, in order to find out who was the person that had called me from that number. The first words I heard was a recorded message saying: "JESUS LOVES YOU." I was, then, absolutely sure that I had received my answer, not only to the sign I had asked for, but to my search for Spiritual Truth. I was taught before that the "Universe" or our Guides do send us signs (messages) all the time and that we just have to learn to understand them. Jesus had given me a sign that I could understand!
In my eagerness and constant efforts to learn more about these writings and its source, I contacted the Foundation Church of the New Birth, the Trustees of Jesus and repository of the original messages. I was greeted by a representative of that Church with kindness, friendliness and warmth, and since that first contact, this worker, who is a Minister in the Church, has been very supportive, and willing to guide me along these teachings. I now have all four volumes of True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus. that I have used as the basis to continue my study of the Truths revealed by Jesus and his followers, through the mediumship of Mr. James Padgett, in 1914 through 1923, and in later years after his demise, through Dr. Daniel G. Samuels.
Many times when reading the messages I felt as if they were actually talking to me, or answering questions in my mind, the very moment upon opening the book and choosing a message. Amazing!
Although each and every message is a source of high spiritual knowledge and inspiration, I have been touched by many, but in particular, would like to cite an excerpt from one of Jesus' messages entitled, The Only Way to the Kingdom of God in the Celestial Heavens in Vol. I (p. 20) of the True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus:
"THEN, AS I HAVE SAID, THIS DIVINE LOVE OF THE FATHER, WHEN POSSESSED BY THE SOUL OF MAN, MAKES HIM IN HIS SUBSTANCE AND ESSENCE DIVINE LIKE UNTO THE DIVINITY OF THE FATHER, AND ONLY SUCH SOULS CONSTITUTE AND INHABIT THE CELESTIAL OR DIVINE KINGDOM OF GOD; AND THIS BEING SO, IT MUST BE READILY SEEN THAT THE ONLY WAY TO THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM IS THAT WHICH LEADS TO THE OBTAINING OF THIS DIVINE LOVE, WHICH MEANS THE NEW BIRTH; AND WHICH NEW BIRTH IS BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE FLOWING INTO THE SOULS OF MEN THIS DIVINE LOVE, WHEREBY THE VERY NATURE AND SUBSTANCE OF THE FATHER, AND WHEREFROM MEN CEASE TO BE THE MERELY CREATED BEINGS, BUT BECOME THE SOULS OF MEN BORN INTO THE DIVINE REALITY OF GOD."
These words and profound teachings expounded by Jesus are very convincing and through my soul perception I can feel the truthfulness in them. I was also taken by the beauty of The Prayer that he wrote for us, to pray for the Divine Love. There was something special about it and simply Beautiful, as I had never seen before.
Through my daily and earnest prayer to the Father for His Divine Love, I sense that "connection" as I grow stronger in my faith and firm resolution to follow this path. I give thanks with all my heart and soul for the precious gift of this knowledge and for my soul's ability to understand and accept this as His True Teachings. I have, indeed, had a life changing experience.
In my awareness of the Great importance of our souls' development, I sincerely pray that more and more of our brothers and sisters will be influenced by the Divine Angels, as to the awakening to the Father's Love, in the knowledge that it is the greatest gift that any mortal or spirit could possess.
