Mr. James Edward Padgett was born August 25, 1852, in Washington, D.C. and attended the Polytechnic
Academy Institute at New Market, Virginia. In 1880 he was admitted to the bar in Washington, D.C.,
and thereafter he practiced law for 43 years until his death on March 17, 1923. During his student
years, he became friendly with Professor Joseph Salyards, an instructor at the Academy who, after
his death in 1885, wrote him many interesting messages. His wife, Helen, died about February 1914,
and was the first to write him from the spirit world. Padgett never practiced the gift of mediumship
as a means of earning money. He was dedicated wholly to the reception of the great messages signed
Jesus and his many disciples.
Presenting spirit to mortal communications from Jesus of Nazareth and other high Celestial spirits
delivered by means of automatic writings through the Divinely developed psychic mediumship of
Mr. James E. Padgett, a Washington, D.C. attorney, from 1914-1923. Representing the Second Coming
of Jesus to earth and forming the basis of teaching of the Foundation
Church of the New Birth. These messages contain the original unaltered transcriptions of these
communications approved by Jesus in title and contents, revealing the true and only way to soul
salvation by becoming At-One (atone) with the Father and receiving into his soul inflowings of
the Father's Divine Love.
The volumes explain Jesus' public ministry as God's Messiah, and how he proclaimed the Glad Tidings
of the rebestowal by God, the Father of His Divine Love on mankind, teaching his followers to pray
and long for Its inflowing into their souls. The volumes reveal how this Love's entrance into the
soul bestows the Kingdom of Heaven by causing the New Birth of soul into the Father's Immortal nature;
and how these simple truths were lost after Jesus' death, when men of lesser faith changed them
without pursuing the true and only way to the Divine Kingdom of Heaven which he had taught. They
contain answers to the following questions and many more:
What is our true relationship to God, our Heavenly Father? How can we become At-one with him?
Is Jesus God? How and when did he become the Christ? What was his true mission on earth?
Does Jesus' blood save us from our sins as the Bible teaches?
Why did the Father, our Creator, put us here on earth? Do we possess a Divine spark within?
