MEDIUMSHIP WITH JESUS
"Mediumship with Jesus is like a sublime bridge through which the loftiest expressions of divine thought may pass. It is an inexhaustible fountain of transcendent resources, which ebbs and flows abundantly, quenching the thirst of many and restoring peace and strength. From its superior sources come inspiration and spiritual nourishment, plus the energy that sustains us in
the difficult moments of martyrdom and renunciation. It is also through its channel that heaven speaks to man, the Father answers the pleas we send out in our prayers, and mercy soothes our sores and encourages us towards sanctification through charity. It is through mediumship that the apostle, the missionary, and the saint have their glimpses into the unknown, their visions, dreams, and raptures, or receive the lofty stimulus that drives them forward into self-realization and the fulfillment of noble aims, regardless of scoffers and disturbers that may stand in their way, threatening. Jesus Christ, the medium of God, lifted mediumship to its most sublime position."
"Mediumship is a blessing. But if neglected, it becomes a source of Darkness and constant misfortune, ending up by overcoming the imprudent host who disrespects it. If rejected, it may turn into an open door to many forms of alienation and physical diseases of difficult diagnosis. A spiritual perception working through the delicate network of the perispirit, mediumship filters the vibrations and then it may become a bright sunshine, or a heavy blanket of shadows, depending on the spheres it attunes to."
"Every conscious Christian should ennoble mediumship through work of self-sacrifice, guarding it from any form of vice that attracts inferior earthbound entities whose contact may pervert and degrade it."
"Joel is a good example of dedication and discipline. He is a conscious student of Spiritism, and is aware of his own limitations. Such conditions make him an excellent instrument for comunication between the two worlds, because he is free from self-importance, inferior passion and conceit." And, paraphrasing the Gospel, he added: "To the good labourer, the right compensation is assured."
