MY ENCOUNTER WITH GOD'S DIVINE LOVE
By Geraldine Cousins
At a very challenging time in my life, I was seeking spiritual truth and answers to many questions I had about life, that the Christian religion, in which I was brought up, did not satisfy.
Around 2006, and, in my quest to find spiritual Truths, I was guided to search the Internet for information about, and using keywords, such as "the soul", "Angels", etc. By so doing, I stumbled upon a web site containing something that I never expected to find – messages from Jesus, no less, and from other Celestial Spirits.
Prior to that, I had become interested in, and practiced an Eastern Philosophy (Buddhism), for more than sixteen (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, unlike the Christian religions. I did believe, 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 one GOD. But I found logic in the theory of reincarnation, taught by the Eastern Philosophies, since they seemed to explain, or so I thought, 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.
But, these messages from Jesus and the other Celestial Spirits caught my attention in such a powerful 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. These messages resonated; they touched my soul at the very core, as I read them with great amazement, every possible moment that I could find. I was able to 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 a 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 to me. With this discernment, my interest grew more in these writings.
Although what I had read was very convincing, one morning, after reading, yet, more of these messages, I ascended my thoughts to Jesus in way of a conversation, and this is what I said to him, 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, as I ask you to 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 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 been even conceived by a mortal mind, still, I would appreciate your confirmation. Please send me a sign, and forgive me for questioning your messages, if you are, indeed, the source of them".
Well, after having this "conversation" with Jesus, I proceeded to engage in my daily task, completely forgetting about my request, as, perhaps, I didn't really believe that I would get such an answer. But, approximately one hour and a half later, my phone rang and I was unable to take the call at the time. Later, upon checking the Caller ID, in order to see who had called, to my great surprise, the Caller ID displayed the words or name: "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, when I could summon the courage, I decided to call the number displayed, in order to find out more about the caller. 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 that my search for Spiritual Truth had come to an end. That I had found that which I was seeking! I was taught before that the "Universe" or our spirit guides do send us signs or messages, all the time and that we just have to learn to interpret them. Jesus had, indeed, given me a sign…a sign that I would understand.
Although each and every message is a source of high spiritual content and inspiration, I have been touched by many, but in, particular, I would like to cite an excerpt from one of Jesus' messages, namely, "The Only Way to the Kingdom of God in the Celestial Heavens", found in the second paragraph of Page 24 of the book entitled "True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus", Vol 1:
"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"
I was impressed by the manner in which the messages were written - the simplicity, the tone of TRUTH, reason and logic. I was, and still am, touched each time that I read a message, sensing the eagerness of these Celestial beings to convey to mankind the message of the Father's Divine Love, and so much more, through these Revelations. And, in return, and with a deep sense of gratitude, I felt compelled to do something for the Father and His Celestial Angels, and that was, almost immediately, to translate their messages to the Spanish language, for the benefit of His other non-English speaking children.
I was also taken by the beauty of The Prayer that Jesus wrote for us to pray for the Divine Love. There was something special about it, simply beautiful.
Through daily and earnest prayer to the Father for His Divine Love, I feel that "connection", as I grow stronger in my faith and firm resolution to follow this path, now and throughout eternity.
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 and at-onement with God, I sincerely pray that more and more of His children 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.
