MY ENCOUNTER WITH DIVINE LOVE
AFTER A LONG JOURNEY
AFTER A LONG JOURNEY
By Geraldine Cousins
At a very difficult time in my life, I was searching the Internet for information about the soul and stumbled upon a web site containing something that I never expected to find – messages from Jesus, no less, and from other Celestial Spirits. In my earlier years, I became interested in, and practiced an Eastern Philosophy (Buddhism), for more than 16 years. Later on, I joined a Metaphysical Church and also did some research on “Huna”, a Polynesian religion. These “philosophies” seemed, then, to contain answers to many questions I had, but which the Christian religions did not satisfy. I believed, though, that Jesus was a great philosopher himself, but that his true teachings were misrepresented by the Churches. Though Buddhism taught us that there were “many gods” in the Universe, acting as protective forces, and not only one God, I had accepted this point of view with some reservations, as I sensed that there was only “GOD”. But I found logic in the theory of reincarnation, taught by this doctrine, since it seemed to explain many aspects of life that I could not, otherwise, understand. Yet, for some reason, I continued to ask the “Universe” to reveal the Truth to me, and, to the best of my recollections, I yearned for this since my early teens.
Somehow, the messages from Jesus and the other Celestial Spirits caught my attention in such way that I was convinced that, in response to my soul’s searching for “Spiritual Truths”, I was prompted by these Angels to find and read their messages. I read them with amazement, every possible moment that I could find.
In so doing, I could grasp, from their high spiritual content and, especially, from the very detailed account of the spirit world, that these messages could not have been originated from any human mind or even a spirit imposter, but from a higher source, or as purported. I had before learned about communication between mortals and spirits, so the concept was not far-fetched. 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 ascended 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 can send me a sign which I will clearly understand. Please confirm that these messages did not come from someone trying to impersonate YOU, but are, indeed, from YOU and your followers in the Celestial Heaven. Although, these messages are of high spiritual content and it is hard to believe that such information could have even been conceived by any human mind, still, I would appreciate your confirmation. Please forgive me for questioning you, if you are, indeed, the source of these messages”
Well….after having this “conversation” with Jesus, I continued with my daily task 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 ID later to see who had called, the Caller ID 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. Three or four days later, I called the number displayed, in order to find out more about that number. The first words I heard, after dialing the number, was a recorded message saying: “JESUS LOVES YOU”. I was, then, absolutely sure that I had received my answer, not only 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!
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 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 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 never before I had seen.
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 recognize and accept these teachings as Truths. I have, indeed, had a life changing experience.
In my awareness of the great importance of our soul’s development, I sincerely pray that more and more of our mortal and spirit brothers and sisters will be awakened to the Father’s Divine Love, in the knowledge that it is the greatest gift that any mortal or spirit could possess.
With my love,
