Excerpts from the Inspirational Books
by Frances J. Roberts
ONLY in the release of the seen do you lay hold on the unseen, My little one.
Heaven waits for those who are no longer bound to earth. The degree to which
bondages are exchanged for liberties while still in the flesh is in proportion to the
extent to which eternal values are held in higher esteem that worldly success and
possessions. If a man loves Me, he will hold his soul more precious than his body
and will pursue holiness at the expense of wealth; for to follow after that which
perishes is to forfeit the prize of the high calling in Christ.
There is no place in the kingdom of heaven for a divided heart. It is in the division
that love is lost; and to lose My love, My child, is to lose what cannot be regained.
For a loving heart is a vessel of light and mercy. It is a receptacle into which I pour
My grace. It is untarnished by avarice and indifferent to the call of worldly ambition.
To be united with Me in total dedication to My highest will protects the soul from
forces of destruction. There is no safety in external circumstances. The only shield
for the spirit of man is My presence. It is written, "The angel of the Lord encampeth
round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them." (Psalm 34:7) This is your
safe-keeping, My child, and My love is your reward.
