I am the spirit of Sarah - I was the wife of Abraham.
I want to tell you that I am now a Christian and live in the Celestial Spheres.
Yes, but there are many things in the Bible that are not true. Well, when it says that I sent Hagar into the desert, or caused her to be sent into the desert, to starve and die - that story was a slander on me, and did me great injustice, because I was not such a wicked woman.
Abraham did not send her there either, but she went of her own accord, because she had done that which condemned her in her own conscience. Well, she had taken my husband and had a child by him. I know that the Bible says that (it) was commanded by God, or that I prevailed upon Abraham to have a child by her, but it is not true.
Yes, I am happy, and so is Abraham and our son Isaac, and his son Jacob; but they were without this Divine Love for a great many years, as it only came to us when the Master came to earth.
I know that you think it strange that I should come to you and write, but as I was with Aaron in the earth plane, and was attracted to you by the light which fills the space around you, I followed Aaron and came to you, and after he wrote, I wrote also.
Yes, I see a great number of beautiful spirits around you, and some of the apostles who are so very beautiful and bright. They seem to be so much interested in you, and say that you have been selected to do the work of the Master on earth in the way of revealing the truths which he shall write to you. I don't quite understand it all, but if the Master says it is what shall be done, you will do it.
I must stop now, but please believe that I am Sarah as I have told you. I will leave you now and say goodnight.
Your sister in Christ, Sarah
the wife of Abraham.
