I saw God, the Eternal Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. They did in reality speak to me. When we understand the character of God, He begins to unfold the heavens to us. [MUSIC - "THE SPIRIT OF GOD LIKE A FIRE IS BURNING"] (SINGING) Knowledge and power of God are expanding; the veil o'er the earth is beginning to burst. Few in this world have a correct understanding of the nature and the character of God. If the veil were rent today, and that great God who upholds all things by His power, was to make Himself visible, you would see Him like a man in form. The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's. We were created in His image and likeness. His work and His glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. He is the Father of our spirits. There is not one of us that He has not desired to save. Our Heavenly Father is more liberal in His views and boundless in His mercies and blessings than we are ready to believe or receive. When we are ready to come to Him, He is ready to come to us.
