THE HOLY FATHER'S LOVE AND BLESSING AS A SIGN OF HISSPIRITUAL PRESENCE
And Abedam asked them: "Now listen, I have seen with great pleasure how yousurrendered your hearts. This is truly the best way for you; but know that for the sake of your life's freedom I cannot remain among you as at present but must soon leave you asa visible Father.2. "Which among you is going to arise and work in My name once I shall no longer walk in your midst and you need the help of higher powers and might?3. "Who will then guard you against any adversity? And who will protect your heartsagainst all the evil persecutions of the world if there is no one among you in possessionof higher power and might, left to you all by Me as a mighty protection against all thepersecutions and temptations of the serpent?4. "Do think about it and answer Me.
5. And all who were thus asked answered as with one voice: "O Emmanuel, Your wordsare more than only the purest truth; O Abba, they are love!6. „Therefore, even if our physical eyes will no longer be undeservedly blessed, as theyare now, with seeing You, O holy Father, in person, You, O Abba, will surely notwithdraw Your love from us along with Your restored holy visible presence. InsteadYou will allow us forsaken children to warm and quicken our hearts through Yourinfinite and exceedingly holy fatherly love.7. "O Abba! We merely beseech You to be our Father eternally and not ever withdrawYour blessing hand from us, - then we shall all have sufficient power and might to resistand completely conquer all temptations and dangers of the world.8. "As always and ever, Your holy will be done now!
9. And Abedam, deeply moved, exclaimed loudly: ''Verily, verily, I tell you, once youhave My love, you have everything, - nay, more than all the Heavens of heavens willever comprehend!10. ''You have chosen the highest reward, which nobody will take from you in eternity.11. ''Verily, whoever will faithfully remain in My love, from him death will flee as thesnow retreats before the hot rays of the midday sun of summer.12. „Thus, now as in all eternity, I remain with you in love.
