Who and What is God?
A Jesus Channeling
am here, Jesus.
I have been with you as you
prayed, and joined in your prayer to the Father for the inflowing of His Great
Love into your soul in great abundance; and I know that His Holy Spirit is
present and that His love is flowing into your soul, and that you are becoming
in at-onement with the Father. His love will always come to you when you pray as
you have tonight, and His listening ear is always open to the earnest
aspirations of His children who come to him with the true longings of the soul.
You have the secret of reaching the Father's love, and on all occasions, when
you feel that you need that Love or desire a nearness to the Father, use the
secret and you will not be disappointed.
You are in better condition
tonight in your soul development and perceptions and can receive my message
which I have desired for sometime to communicate, and to do which I was waiting
only for you to be in a complete rapport with me.
Well, you will remember,
that in the early stages of our writings, I communicated to you my knowledge and
conception of "who and what God is," and that I have recently told you
that I desired to rewrite the message, as your condition is now so much better
to receive these truths than it was when the message was written; and so,
tonight, I will deliver the message, and will take a more complete possession of
your brain and control of your hand than I was able to do at the time mentioned.
Then the question is: Who
and What is God?
In dealing with this
question, you must realize that it is not so easy to describe in language that
mortals can comprehend the Essence and Attributes of God, and I feel the
limitations that I am under in endeavoring to give you a satisfactory
description of the only and true God; not because of the paucity of knowledge
and conception on my part, but because of the fact that you have not the
required soul development to enable me to form the necessary rapport with you,
in order that through your brain, may be expressed the exact truth as to who the
Well, to begin, God is
Soul, and Soul is God. Not the soul that is in the created man, but the Soul
that is Deity and self-existent, without beginning or ending, and Whose entity
is the one great fact in the universe of being.
God is without form, such
as has been conceived of by man in nearly all ages, and especially by those who
believe in the Bible of the Hebrews as well as in that of the Christians. But
nevertheless, He is of form, which only the soul perceptions of the soul of a
man which has arrived at a certain degree of development, that is taken on the
Divine nature of the Father and thus become a part of the Soul of God, can
discern and realize as an entity. There is nothing in all nature with which men
are acquainted or have knowledge of, that can be used to make a comparison, even
in the spirit perceptions, with this Great Soul; and hence, for men to conceive
of God as having a form in any manner resembling that of man, is all erroneous;
and those who, in their beliefs and teachings, deny the anthropomorphic God, are
But, nevertheless, God is
of form such as to give him an entity and Substance and seat of habitation, in
contradistinction to that God which, in the teachings of some men, is said to be
everywhere in this Substance and entity - in the trees and rocks, and thunder
and lightning, and in men and beasts, and in all created things, and in whom men
are said to live and move and have their being. No, this concept of God is not
in accord with the truth, and it is vital to the knowledge and salvation of men
that such conception of God be not entertained or believed in.
To believe that God is
without form is to believe that he is a mere force or principle or nebulous
power, and, as some say, the resultant of laws; which laws, as a fact, He has
established for the controlling of His universe of creation, and which are
expressed to men by these very powers and principles, that to some extent, they
can comprehend.The child has asked: "Who made God?" And because the
wise men cannot answer that question, in their wisdom, they conclude and assert
that there can be no real God of personality or soul form, and, hence, only
force, principle or evolved laws can be God; and in their own conceit think that
they have solved the question. But the child may not be satisfied with the
answer, and may ask the wise men: "Who made principle and force and laws
that must be accepted as the only God?" And then, the wise men cannot
answer, unless they answer: "God," which they do not believe, but
which let me say, is the true and only answer.
God is back of force and
principle and law, which are only expressions of His being, and which without
Him could not exist; and they are only existences, changeable, dependent and
subject to the will of God, who only, is Being.
God then, is Soul, and that
Soul has its form, perceptible only to Itself, or that of man, which, by reason
of the sufficient possession of the very Substance of the Great Soul has become
like unto God, not in image only, but in very Essence. We spirits of the highest
soul progression are enabled by our soul perceptions to see God and His form.
But here, I use the words "see" and "form," as being the
only words that I can use to give mortals a comparative conception of what I am
endeavoring to describe.When it is remembered that mortals can scarcely conceive
of the form of the spirit body of a man, which is composed or formed of the
material of the universe, though not usually accepted to be of the material, it
will be readily seen that it is hardly possible for me to convey to them a faint
idea even of the Soul form of God, which is composed of that which is purely
spiritual - that is, not of the material, even though to the highest degree
And although I am not able
because of the limitations mentioned, to describe to men that form which they
may glean a conception of the Soul's form - as such form can be seen only with
the soul's eye, which eyes men do not possess - it must not be believed that
because men cannot understand or perceive the truth of the Soul's form,
therefore, it is not a truth. A truth, truth of the Soul's form, therefore, it
is not a truth. A truth, though not conceived or perceived by men, spirits or
angels, is still a truth, and its existence does not depend upon its being
known; and even though all the mortals of earth, and the spirits and angels of
heaven, save one, could not perceive the existence of that truth, yet its
existence perceived by that one irrefutably proves its reality.
But, as I have said, the
truth of God's form - the Soul's form can be testified to by more than one of
the celestial spirits of men passed from earth; and the possibility is before
mortals of the present life, in the great future, if their souls have become
possessed of the Divine Substance of God's Love in sufficient abundance to
perceive God as I have attempted to explain.The created soul of man has its
form, it being made in the image of God, yet man cannot see that form, although
it is a fact and can be testified to by many in the spirit realms.And here it
need to be said, that when in our message we speak of God as being without form,
we mean any such form as men have or think they have conceived of, and our
expressions must not be considered as contradictory to what I have tried to
explain as the form of God.
Well, in addition to the
form, God has a personality, and this is expressed and made known to man by
certain attributes, which to the consciousness of man is existent in the
universe; and to some philosophers and scientists and wise men these attributes
are their impersonal God himself, and to them the only God. They make the
created, the Creator, not realizing that behind the expression must be the
Cause; and that greater than the attribute must be That from which the
expression of the attribute is projected, or, as they better like to say,
And here, I, who know,
desire to say that these manifested attributes or forces and powers and
principles and laws and expressions do not, all together, constitute or be that
from which they flow or in which they have their source. God is Himself, alone.
His Attributes or expressions manifested to mortals or spirits, are only the
results or effects of the workings of His Spirit, which Spirit is only the
active energy of His Soul - Himself. And hence, the form of God is not
distributed over the whole universe of creation where His attributes may be, or
because they are everywhere manifested.
No, as was said by Moses of
old, and as was said by me when on earth: God is in His Heavens. And although it
may be surprising and startling to mortals to hear, God has His habitation, and
God the Substance, the Self-existing and Soul form, has His locality, and men do
not live and move and have their existence in God; but in His emanations and
expressions and spirit they do.
As you are somewhat
exhausted, I think this a good place to stop.
I am pleased that you are
in such good condition. So be prepared for an early resumption of the message.
With my love and blessings,
I will say, good-night.
