For the sake of this testimony which you now read, I have been made to sacrifice all things. And though a hundred years should pass away, still would I be found declaring simply that I saw God and that I spoke with the Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother of all mankind face to face.
Since that day in June of 1979, I have stood in the presence of the Heavenly Father and the Heavenly Mother many times. I have conversed with angels; I have walked with God through the gardens and cities of Heaven; and I have witnessed for myself the gathering of the Seven Councils of Light. As a consequence of all these things, I was commissioned by God to write a new book of scriptures called the Song of God.
Yet how is a person to know if I have spoken the truth regarding my testimony of God? To answer this I would place before the reader these four considerations.
First: The simple fact that I have remained faithful to my testimony of having seen God and of having spoken face to face with the Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother of all mankind. And like most people, I do not believe that anyone would endure such hardships for the sake of perpetuating a lie.
Second: It has been stated that one can know a tree by the manner of fruit it produces: good fruit from a good tree, and bad fruit from a bad tree. After all, a thorn bush will not produce apples. In similar fashion I have also produced a certain kind of fruit, namely a new book of scriptures which I claim boldly to have come from God. May I, therefore, most humbly encourage you to read and examine this fruit and decide for yourself whether or not it comes from God; for in its pages you will hear your Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother calling out to you to believe, that you might know at last the joy and mystery of heavenly things. It is a foolish man, indeed, who will call evil a tree whose fruit he’s never tasted.
Third: Examine next the feelings and emotions of your own heart as you read the Song of God. For as you touch the beauty of God, do you feel refreshed, enlightened, joyful? Do you feel stirring within you the ineffable wonder of something eternal? Does your spirit leap within you, saying: “This is it! This is what I’ve been looking for all my life!”
I once asked God by what means would people be able to know that the Song of God was true. He smiled at me and told me that in the shadow of beauty, the truth of God is revealed.
As you read this new book of scriptures you will not only find the beauty of God, but you will see at last the beauty of yourselves; and the truth of God and Heaven will spring up within you in a never ending stream of joy and wonder.
Fourth: Finally, as you read this new book of scriptures, do you feel the witness of the Holy Spirit? For I tell you most sincerely that the Holy Spirit is your Heavenly Mother, and she desires above all else to awaken you and to bring you back to a clear remembrance of who you truly are. For you are the sons and daughters of God. Your heavenly parents have not forgotten you, but seek eagerly to draw you back to themselves through the pages of the Song of God, that you might never again feel lost or forgotten.
Consider then these four things. And if you desire truly to know God, then apply yourself with diligence to the study of the Song of God. For I bear solemn witness that I spoke face to face with your Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, and even now do they await eagerly to attend you.
