Service to Others – The Homecoming of a Missionary
In this lecture we learn of a missionary’s homecoming to the world beyond. He has been active on behalf of God and the Redeemer and made sacrifices for his fellow human beings. He never felt alone or abandoned due to his intimate connection with the spiritual world. Ascending spirits as well as angels of God stood by him during his earthly life. They strengthened him with spiritual drink and invisible food and protected him on his dangerous paths. Upon his return to the spiritual world he was shown how he was helped and became acquainted with the spiritual beings who have led and supported him in life.
Retribution for Unfair Business and Hardheartedness
After a brief greeting of the controlling spirit, Amado, an ascending spirit speaks. He describes having entered a world of distress after his death. He carried the burden of his misdemeanors for decades in the spiritual world, according to earthly time measure, and suffered the same kind of hardheartedness he used to confront his fellow human beings with. Gradually, he realized his faults, regretted them deeply and learned how to turn to God in prayer. Eventually he could be freed from his burden and commenced his spiritual ascent. Following Amado’s report spirit teacher Joseph answers a few questions concerning this lecture.
