61. John the Baptist

The Time Is Now Ripe

.    I am here, John the Baptist;
    I come because I want to encourage you to pray more and to believe. The Father's love is waiting for you to fill your soul to its utmost, and the only things required on your part are prayer and faith.
    We are all interested in you and want you to get into a condition that will enable you to take the Master's messages as rapidly as possible, for the time is now ripe when they should be given to mankind and started on their work of redeeming people from false beliefs and erroneous doctrines and dogmas. I, John, tell you this for I can see that people are longing for the truths of God. Such truths as will accord with the reasoning of men who are not biased by erroneous beliefs, either in matters spiritual or material.
    I tell you that these truths will be easier for the mere materialist to receive and understand than by those who are bound by the beliefs which the creeds and dogmas of the churches have inculcated. And the acceptance of this new revelation of the truths of God will be by those who have no preconceived ideas of what the nature and relation of man to God, in the spiritual sense is, rather than by the learned theologian and the simple worshiper at the altars of the churches who believe whatever may be told them by the priest and preachers.
    As I was at one time the voice of one crying in the wilderness, I am now the voice of many spirits of God who know that the Master will teach the truths of his Father, and that these truths must be accepted by mortals on earth and by spirits in the spirit world in order that they may receive that salvation which the Father has prepared for them, and which when accepted and realized and possessed will fit them to become partakers of the happiness and immortality which the Father has promised them.
    I have written you in this manner tonight because I want you to realize more fully and deeply the important work which the Master has selected you to do.
    I will stop now. 
    Your brother in Christ, John the Baptist
