A Jesus Channeling
I am here, Jesus.
I am here as I promised
last night and will write on the subject of the Incarnate Soul.
You may have observed in
your studies of the different theories of the creation of man that always the
question has arisen as to the relationship of the spiritual and physical - that
is, as to the soul and the material body. I know that many theories have been
set forth as to how and when the soul became a part of the physical body and
what was the means adopted by the laws of nature, as they are called, for the
lodgment of the soul into that body, and the relationship that one bore to the
other. Of course this applies only to those mortals who believe that there is a
soul separate in its existence and functionings from the mere physical body; as
to those who do not believe in the distinctive soul, I do not attempt to
enlighten but leave them to a realization of the fact when they shall have come
into the spirit world and find themselves existing without such body, but really
existing, with the consciousness that they are souls.
When the physical body is
created it has no consciousness of its having been created, for it is merely of
the unconscious creations that are of the other material creatures of nature,
and does not feel or sense in any degree the fact, that it is a living thing
dependent upon the proper nourishment of its mother for its growth and continued
life in accordance with the laws of nature, and the objects of its own creation.
The father and mother, being necessary to the creation or formation of this
merely animal production, know only that in some way there has come into
existence an embryo thing that may eventuate into a human being like unto
themselves. If this thing were allowed to remain without the soul it would soon
fail to fulfill the object of its creation and disintegrate into the elements of
which it is formed, and mankind would cease to exist as inhabitants of the
earth. This physical part of man is really and only the result of the
commingling of those forces that are contained in the two sexes, which according
to the laws of nature, or of man's creation, are suited to produce the one body
fitted for the home of the soul that may be attracted to it, to develop its
individuality as a thing of life and possible immortality.
The result of this
commingling is intended only as a temporary covering or protection for the
growth of the real being, and does not in any way limit or influence the
continuous existence of the soul, and when its functions have ended, the soul,
which has then become individualized, continues its life in new surroundings and
in gradual progression, and the mere instrument used for its individualization
is disseminated into the elements forming its appearance and substance. As this
body was called from the elements for a certain purpose, when that purpose shall
have been served, it returns to these elements.
This body, of itself, has
neither consciousness nor sensation, and in the beginning has only the borrowed
life of its parents, and then when the soul finds its lodgment, it has only the
life of the soul: for the human life can exist only so long as the soul inhabits
the body, and after such habitation commences, the borrowed life of the parents
ceases to exercise any influence or directing force on the body. This, then, is
really the true description of the physical body, and if it were all of man, he
would perish with its death and cease to exist as a part of the creation of the
universe of God.
But the soul is the vital,
living and never dying part of man - is really the man - and the only thing that
was intended to continue an existence in the spirit world. It was made in the
image of God, and there is no reason for its existing for the continuing
companionship of the physical body. And when men say or believe that the body is
all of man, and when it dies man ceases to exist, they do not understand the
relationship or functioning of soul and body, and know only the half truth which
is visible to their senses - that the body dies and can never again be
resuscitated. This is a determined fact and all arguments by analogy, to show
that man must continue to live notwithstanding the death of that body, are not
apposite and very inconclusive. All these analogous appearances only show that
the objects of the analogy ultimately die, and thus fail to prove that these
objects are eternal, just as much as if there had never been any change in their
condition or appearance. The final demonstration is that they die, and when this
analogy is applied to man, it must show that he dies also, and is no more.
But the questions are
asked, whence comes the soul, by whom created, how does it become incarnated in
man and for what purpose, and what is its destiny?
First let me state, that
man has nothing to do with the creation of the soul or its appearance in the
flesh. His work is to provide a receptacle for its coming - a mere host, as it
were, for its entry into the flesh, and existence as a mortal or in the
appearance of a mortal. But his responsibility in this particular is very great,
for man can destroy that receptacle, or care for it so that the soul may
continue in earth life a longer or shorter time. And while this receptacle is
the creation of man and without him it could not be brought into existence, yet
the soul is no part of his creation and is independent of the body - and after
the earth life, in the spirit world, it will cease to remember that it was ever
connected with or dependent upon the creation of its parents. The soul, in the
spirit life, as a truth, is so separated from and dissociated with that body
which was its home while in the earth life that it looks upon it as a mere
vision of the past and not a subject for its consideration.
As has been told you, the
soul was created by the Father long before its appearance in the flesh, and
awaited such incarnation for the purpose only of giving it an individuality,
which it did not have in its preexistence, and in which it has a duplex
personality - male and female - that is needed to be separated and made
individual. We who have had this preexistence and incarnation in the flesh and
have obtained this individuality, know the truth of what I have here stated.
There is a law of God
controlling these things that renders these preexisting souls capable of knowing
the desirability of incarnation and they are always anxious and ready for the
opportunity to be born in the flesh and to assume the separate individuality
that they are privileged to assume. As men provide the receptacle for their
appearing and homing, as it were, they become aware of the fact and take
advantage of the opportunity to occupy the receptacle, and become ostensibly a
human being with the necessary result of individuality.
I am glad that you are in a
better condition and will continue the messages as we have been desiring to do
for some time.
I shall be with you and
help you in every way, and hope that you will keep up your faith and prayers to
the Father. Good night and God bless you.
