I am here, Jesus.
You are my friend and disciple. You are in me and I am in thee, and we are in the Father. You are in me for all eternity. My kingdom is not of this world and you are not of this world. You are in me, as I told my disciples of old. Only believe me and keep my commandments, and I will love you to the end, and the Father will love you.
I mean that you must love all mankind and try to show them the way to God's Love. I mean that I am my Father's son of truth and righteousness, and as such you must pray the Father in my name, not because I am Jesus, but because I represent all the truth and Love of my Father.
Yes, and that is the only way in which men can come to the Father - no other - and when my kingdom is completed only those who have become one with the Father will become a part of it.
Yes, she told you the truth. My kingdom will be composed only of those who believe in my teachings and who have received the Holy Ghost. So do not doubt more. You I have selected and you will be my true disciple and messenger of truth - you have my help and love to the fullest, and no man can take it from you. In all eternity you will be with me. God answers your prayers because you have faith and are my own disciple. So continue to pray and He will hear you and answer your prayers.
No, only believe and trust Him. He will never forsake you or let you want. You must love God with all your heart and soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself. This is the great commandment. So observe this and you will be happy and free.
Let your prayers become more fervent and your faith more fully developed. I will help you to know more of your Father's Love, and you will soon become a true follower of me. You must seek and you will know; wait until I give my messages, and then you will know the truth.
Yes, I am the vine and you are the branch. So believe. What you have written is my thoughts. You did not think any of these thoughts.
So good night and may God bless you as I do now.
