I am here, Jesus.
I come tonight because I see that you are again praying to the Father for the inflowing of His Love and for faith, and for a nearness to him that will make you happy. I am glad of this new aspiration and know that the Love will come to you and that your faith will be increased, and your trust in me will be established firmly so that we can proceed with our work. So, I will soon come now and write you another of my formal messages, and I hope that thence we can go rapidly onward.
I have been with you today and know what your feelings have been, and how in a way you have had faith that certain things would come to pass without knowing just why - but you have not troubled yourself very much and expected to secure them at the time needed. Well, I want to tell you that that is the kind of faith that you should have in reference to all the things that affect you both materially and spiritually. Such faith brings results and you will not be disappointed in your present faith, for what you need will come to you this week. I am here predicting a thing with certainty as I see it; and I do not think you will be disappointed. I know what you mean, and we will help you, only exercise your will power, and when you feel the temptation come to you very strong, utter a prayer to the Father for help, and you will receive it.
I am glad that you are in such condition of harmony with the Father tonight, and that your love for him is so strong; and with that love will come faith that will be able to accomplish most anything that you may desire, and that the Father sees is best for you. Yes, you can ask those things with the assurance that they will be pleasing to the Father and will not be refused you. I would like to write longer but I must stop now.
I will tell you the next time that I write about these two spirits who say they are the first parents of the human race. I have not the time now, and what I may say may be interesting to you and to the world.
So, my dear brother, I will say goodnight.
