Message from the Spirit of Truth – Paris, 1860

In Allan Kardec’s book, The Gospel According to Spiritism, there is a message from the Spirit of Truth, Chapter VI, The Consoling Christ, Section 5, The Coming of the Spirit of Truth.

The Spirit of Truth is the promised consoler mentioned in the New Testament;

But as for you, you will know him because he will remain  with you and will be among you. But the consoler, who is the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name,, will teach you all things and will enable you to remember everything that I have said to you” (John. 14:15-17,26)

The Spirit of Truth wrote the following message to us; via a medium in Paris in 1860;

“I have come, as I once came amongst the wayward children of Israel, to bring the truth and dissipate the darkness. Listen to me. Spiritism, as my word of old, must remind disbelievers that above them reign the immutable truth; the good God, the great God who makes the plant germinate and raises the tides. I have revealed the divine Doctrine, and like a reaper, I have gathered into sheaves the good scattered amid humankind and have said, ‘Come unto me, all you who suffer!’

My Father does not want to annihilate the human race; he wants you, through the help you give to one another – both the living and the dead, that is, dead according to the flesh, since death does not exist – to succor one another, and for the voice of the prophets and apostles no longer to be heard, but instead, the voice of those who have departed from the earth, proclaiming to you, ‘Pray and believe! For death is resurrection and life is the chosen trial during which your cultivated virtues must grow and develop like cedar.’

O frail humans, who are aware of the darkness of your minds, do not stray from the beacon that divine clemency has placed in your hands to light your way and lead you, as lost children, back to the bosom of your Father.

I am too moved with compassion for your miseries, your great frailty, not to extend a sure hand to those wayward unfortunates who, seeing heaven, fall into the abysses of error. Believe, love and meditate upon the things that are being revealed to you. Do not mix tares with the good seed, utopias with the truth.

bookofTruthO Spiritists! Love one another; this is the first teaching. Educate yourselves; this is the second. All truths are found in Christianity. The errors that have become rooted within it are of human origin; and here, beyond the grave – which you believed was nothingness – voices cry out to you: ‘Brothers and sisters! Nothing perishes. Jesus Christ is the victor over evil; be victors over impiety.” [The Gospel According to Spiritism, Allan Kardec, pp 129-131]

When the Spirit of Truth, tells us not to mix tares (weeds) with the good seed and utopias with the truth; we are being told to be true to the Spiritist Doctrine, do not adulterate it to make the Doctrine easier and more comfortable for people to understand and accept. Yes, you may interpret it in order to explain it, but don’t promise any easy exit for those seeking heaven. Only through living Spiritism, can we hope to achieve any progress in our quest to become better souls.
